J. Edgar Hoover had black ancestors

"A new book entitled Secrets Uncovered, J Edgar Hoover - Passing For White? has been published revealing that J Edgar Hoover, the head of the FBI for most of its early history from 1924 until his death in 1972, had black ancestors. The author, Millie McGhee is an African-American who says she was told as a little girl in McComb, Mississippi, USA, of her familles links with Hoover, described by the author Edward Spannaus, his article The Mysterious Origins of J. Edgar Hoover as "one of the most virulent racists to hold a top government position" in the USA in the 20th century."

The Mysterious Origins of J. Edgar Hoover

"Hoover's obsessive hostility and hatred toward African-Americans was well-known throughout his career, especially in later years. What is less well-known is that rumors about J. Edgar Hoover's possible black ancestry were also widespread during his reign, both inside and outside of the Bureau. There are reports that Hoover deployed his agents to track down rumors of his black ancestry, just as he did regarding rumors and reports about his homosexuality."

Quote from Abraham Lincoln in Black and White

"I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the White and Black races--that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with White people, and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the White and Black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the White race."

Lincoln's Letter To Horace Greeley

Executive Mansion,
Washington, August 22, 1862.

Hon. Horace Greeley:
Dear Sir.

I have just read yours of the 19th. addressed to myself through the New-York Tribune. If there be in it any statements, or assumptions of fact, which I may know to be erroneous, I do not, now and here, controvert them. If there be in it any inferences which I may believe to be falsely drawn, I do not now and here, argue against them. If there be perceptable [sic] in it an impatient and dictatorial tone, I waive it in deference to an old friend, whose heart I have always supposed to be right.

As to the policy I "seem to be pursuing" as you say, I have not meant to leave any one in doubt.

I would save the Union. I would save it the shortest way under the Constitution. The sooner the national authority can be restored; the nearer the Union will be "the Union as it was." If there be those who would not save the Union, unless they could at the same time save slavery, I do not agree with them. If there be those who would not save the Union unless they could at the same time destroy slavery, I do not agree with them. My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it would help to save the Union. I shall do less whenever I shall believe what I am doing hurts the cause, and I shall do more whenever I shall believe doing more will help the cause. I shall try to correct errors when shown to be errors; and I shall adopt new views so fast as they shall appear to be true views.

I have here stated my purpose according to my view of official duty; and I intend no modification of my oft-expressed personal wish that all men everywhere could be free.

Yours,
A. Lincoln.

The Editor of Ebony Magazine comments on Abraham Lincoln...

"On at least fourteen occasions between 1854 and 1860, Lincoln said unambiguously that he believed the Negro race was inferior to the White race. In Galesburg, he referred to 'the inferior races.' Who were 'the inferior races'? African Americans, he said, Mexicans, who he called 'mongrells," and probably all colored people." -- Lerone Bennett, Jr., Editor of Ebony Magazine, "Forced into Glory: Abraham Lincoln's White Dream" (Chicago: Johnson Publishing Co., 2000), p. 132

Was Lincoln a Tyrant?

"As Robert Johannsen, author of Lincoln, the South, and Slavery put it, Lincoln’s position on slavery was identical to Clay’s: 'opposition to slavery in principle, toleration of it in practice, and a vigorous hostility toward the abolition movement' (emphasis added). Regardless of what Basler said, I take the position that Lincoln’s sincerity can certainly be questioned in this regard. His words did lack effectiveness on the issue of slavery because he contradicted himself so often. Indeed, one of his most famous defenders, Harry Jaffa, has long maintained that Honest Abe was a prolific liar when he was making numerous racist and white supremacist remarks. He was lying, says Jaffa, just to get himself elected. In The Lincoln Enigma Gabor Boritt even goes so far in defending Lincoln’s deportation/colonization proposals to say, 'This is how honest people lie.' Well, not exactly. Truly honest people do not lie."

Abraham Lincoln on Race

"Abraham Lincoln, the consumate political manipulator, often spoke out of both sides of his mouth on the subject of race, depending on who he was speaking to. Much the same was true of his utterances on politics. Here are some samples of each. Judge for yourself the words versus the reality of Lincoln's actions."

ON RACE:
"What I would most desire would be the separation of the white and black races."— Spoken at Springfield, Illinois on July 17th, 1858; from ABRAHAM LINCOLN: COMPLETE WORKS, 1894, Vol. 1, page 273

"See our present condition---the country engaged in war! Our White men cutting one another's throats! And then consider what we know to be the truth. But for your race among us there could not be war, although many men engaged on either side do not care for you one way or another. "Why should the people of your race be colonized, and where? Why should they leave this country? This is, perhaps, the first question for proper consideration. You and we are different races. We have between us a broader difference than exists between almost any other two races. Whether it is right or wrong I need not discuss, but this physical difference is a great disadvantage to us both, as I think your race suffer very greatly, many of them by living among us, while ours suffer from your presence. In a word, we suffer on each side. If this be admitted, it affords a reason at least why we should be separated. It is better for both, therefore, to be separated." — Spoken at the White House to a group of black community leaders, August 14th, 1862, from COLLECTED WORKS OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN, Vol 5, page 371

"I will say, then, that I AM NOT NOR HAVE EVER BEEN in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the black and white races---that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with White people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the White and black races which will ever FORBID the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together, there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I, as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the White race." — 4th Lincoln-Douglas debate, September 18th, 1858; COLLECTED WORKS Vol. 3, pp. 145-146

Abraham Lincoln: An American Tyrant

"During the Civil War, Lincoln continuously circumvented the law and in many cases suspended the Constitution altogether. In doing so, Lincoln denied the rights of citizens he was sworn to protect. He suspended the writ of Habeas Corpus, closed courts by force, and arrested citizens and elected officials without cause. Lincoln also raised troops without the consent of Congress, closed-down newspapers whose writers displayed any dissent to U.S. policy."

An Open Letter from Rev. Wayne Perryman -- Racism in the Democratic Party?

Is Rev. Perryman right? Does the Democratic Party have a history of racism?

From the office of
Rev. Wayne Perryman
P.O. Box 256
Mercer Island, WA 98040

January 9, 2006

To: Congressional Black Caucus, National Bar Association,NAACP, National Urban League,Dr. Cornell West, Professor Charles Ogletree,Senator Hillary Clinton, Senator Joseph Biden,Senator Barack Obama, Senator Edward Kennedy,Senator Joseph Lieberman, Senator Barbara Boxer,Senator Pat Roberts, Senator Carl Levin,Senator Diane Feinstein, Cong. John Conyers,Cong. Jesse Jackson Jr., Cong. Harold Ford,Senator Mary Landrieu, Senator Sam Brownback,Senator Bill Frist, Cong. Elijah Cummings

Attention Congressional & Community Leaders:

I thought it would only be fitting and proper to provide an explanation as to what brought about the Reparations lawsuit against the Democratic Party. Before I share with you the chain of events that led to the lawsuit, I thought that perhaps I should give you a brief background on myself and my past political affiliation.

I am a community activist and an inner-city minister located in the Seattle Washington. In addition to working with gang members and professional athletes, I spend my leisure time doing research. In 1993, based on personal research, I challenged major Christian Publishers and scholars that continued to produce publications promoting the Curse of Ham theory (a theory that justified slavery from a Christian perspective). My efforts resulted in a public apology and the removal of the 400 year old curse theory from all of their publications including removing it from the Encyclopedia Britannica (See attached letters and articles). My book: The 1993 Trial On The Curse of Ham was based on that research.

Most of my adult life I have voted for, and worked with a number of Democratic candidates at the local level. In 1996, I served as a member of the Washington State Black Clergy to Re-elect President Bill Clinton and worked closely with the co-chair. After President Clinton was re-elected, I was challenged by a group of young people from our church regarding the history of the Democratic Party and their relationship with blacks. Their challenge prompted me to devote a considerable amount of time researching the subject.

My research included reviewing Congressional Records from 1860 to present, reading the works of several renowned history professors (both black and white) and looking at the Democratic Platform from the early 1800’s to 1954. In addition to these documents I reviewed the research of those who produced the books: Without Sanctuary, 100 Years of Lynchings and added to my library the History Channel’s series on The Rise and Fall of Jim Crow and Reconstruction: The Second Civil War. Excerpts from those books and film documentaries were included as exhibits in my Reparations lawsuit against the Democratic Party.

The graphic depictions of whites fighting over the private parts of black men (penises, fingers, ears) after hanging them and igniting them with kerosene, is forever embedded in my mind. I can still hear the cries of the victims’ wives and children pleading and begging for the lives of their loved ones while Democratic national and local elected officials joined the crowd and cheered. The lynching of Mary Turner, the nine-month pregnant mother was even more horrific and graphic. All of these events took place under the banner of “States Rights” in regions controlled by Democratic governors, mayors, judges, sheriffs, Congressmen and U.S. Senators. Like Dr King, my parents lived through those times in Atlanta and I never fully appreciated what they and other blacks went through until I had completed my research.
In addition to lynchings and terrorist attacks by the Democrat’s terrorist organizations (as revealed in the 1871 Senate hearings), Democrats legislated Black Codes, Jim Crow laws and a multitude of other repressive legislation at the federal and state levels (and repealed other key pieces of Civil Rights legislation) all in an effort to deny blacks their rights as citizens. The entire system of racism in America was meticulously thought-out and carried-out by a powerful political machine. And that political machine according to historians, was the Democratic Party - the party of “White Supremacy.”

Based on these findings, I sent the attached (April 5, 2004) letter to the DNC requesting that they issue an apology to African Americans. In 2005, I sent a second letter to the DNC, again requesting an apology. When the DNC ignored these requests, I filed my first lawsuit on December 10, 2005. Prior to my letters, members of the Congressional Black Caucus sent former Congressman JC Watts the letter below (on January 28, 1999). In that letter the Caucus told Mr. Watts and his Republican counterparts t“Clearly and publicly distance themselves from the CCC and any other white supremacist, anti-semitic or hate groups….” In my letter to the DNC, I expressed similar sentiments. I told the DNC “An apology is one of the only ways modern-day Democrats can distance themselves from the party’s racist past while bringing some closure to the African American Community.” Instead of apologizing, Howard Dean hired one of the most powerful law-firms in the country, to defend the party’s racist past.

Without an apology and repentance there is no way the Democratic Party can ever sincerely honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Ms Rosa Parks; two individuals who literally gave their lives to destroy the racist programs, policies and practices that were established by the Democratic Party. And without an apology and repentance there is no way the Democratic Party can ever respect African Americans. Their past programs and practices from slavery through Jim Crow which literally destroyed the lives of millions of blacks, was an act of mass murder. And to hire an attorney to defend that racist past is not only an official endorsement of murder - it is an insult to the entire black race and to those whites who gave their lives to eliminate racial injustice.

I look forward to your response.

Sincerely

Rev. Wayne Perryman

STATEMENT OF INTEREST OF AMICI

Amicus NATIONAL BLACK REPUBLICAN ASSOCIATION (NBRA) is a 501 (c)(4) non-profit, social services organization that was created in 2005 and is dedicated to improving the lives of African Americans through economic and political empowerment. The goal of the NBRA is to enlighten African Americans about their political history so that they can seize control over their own destiny, stop having their vote taken for granted and hold politicians accountable for the content of their policies, not the label of their party. To implement a solution to the blighted conditions in urban America, the NBRA seeks to first encourage African Americans to acknowledge the root causes – bad individual choices and the culture of dependency that permeates urban communities. These two factors are the result of four decades of African Americans being convinced that they are “victims” who cannot succeed without government subsidies, the essence of Socialism. The antidote to Socialism is Capitalism. Capitalistic principles include: (1) using the free market to marshal capital for community revitalization, (2) establishing government/private sector partnerships to provide job and self-sufficiency training for individuals related to gainful employment, and (3) empowering law enforcement to aggressively control street crime. Such actions require a change in the political leadership in urban communities, from liberal to conservative, as was done in New York City. Given the reality of America’s political system where the majority rules, political decisions made by a majority vote determine the economic progress, decline or stagnation of urban communities. Since America has, in essence, a two-party system, it is of prime importance which political party controls the decision-making process in our urban communities. In general, liberals identify with the Democratic Party, and conservatives identify with the Republican Party. However, in urban communities, conservative African Americans identify with the liberal Democratic Party. In those communities, liberal Democrats maintain control each election cycle by: (1) putting on a conservative “mask;” (2) offering no solutions to the deplorable conditions created by the Democratic Party’s socialist policies; (3) demonizing the Republican Party by falsely claiming that the Republican Party is a party of “rich, white racists” who “disenfranchise” African Americans; (4) blaming Republicans for the deplorable conditions in the urban communities that are run by the Democrats; and (5) inciting African Americans to cast a protest vote against Republicans, not a vote for Democrats. The NBRA is uniquely situated to be an agent for changing the political dynamics in urban communities. The NBRA is planning to host economic forums in urban communities, using as an example the successful economic transformation of an urban community in Sarasota, Florida. The theme of the forums will be: The Pathway to Prosperity – Republican Party Principles in Action. The forums are designed to demonstrate that the Republican Party’s platform of strong families, personal responsibility, getting a good education and ownership of homes and small businesses lead to prosperity. Also presented will be the fact that the Democratic Party’s policies of Socialism lead to dependency on government handouts and generational poverty. An essential element of the forums will be information about the political history of African Americans, highlighting the fact that it was Republicans, not Democrats, who championed freedom and civil rights for African Americans since the inception of the Republican Party in 1854 as the anti-slavery party. A focus of the NBRA’s activities is the achievement of the organization’s mission which is bringing African Americans back to what has always been their natural and traditional home, the Republican Party.

Amicus FRANCES P. RICE is the chairman and a co-founder of the NBRA. She is a retired lawyer and retired Army Lieutenant Colonel who, after twenty years of active duty in the military, received the Legion of Merit, the highest medal that can be awarded to a non-combatant. While on active duty, she served, among other duties, as the commander of a Women’s Army Corps company, adjutant of a basic combat training brigade and special assistant to the Army Judge Advocate General. She has been active in the Republican Party since 1962 while she was still in high school and during the modern civil rights era of the 1960’s. Colonel Rice’s great-grandparents were slaves, and she spent her formative years in the segregated South during the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s. She was born in Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, the same hospital where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was born. From time to time, she attended Ebenezer Baptist Church where Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr. was the pastor and participated in civil rights protests inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. She observed Georgia Democrat Governor Lester Maddox as he brandished ax handles to prevent African Americans from patronizing his restaurant. With horrified dismay, she watched the television images of Alabama Democrat Public Safety Commissioner "Bull" Connor in Birmingham as he let loose vicious dogs and turned fire hoses on African American civil rights demonstrators. She saw on television how Arkansas Democrat Governor Orval Faubus stood in the doors of the Little Rock Central High School and blocked the entrance of African American students in defiance of the United States Supreme Court’s Brown v. Board of Education decision declaring that the “separate but equal” doctrine for America’s educational system was unconstitutional. She became aware through television images of how Alabama Democrat Governor George Wallace stood in front of an Alabama schoolhouse in 1963 and thundered, "Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever." She experienced first hand the debilitating effects of the segregationist policies and practices of the Democratic Party. At the tender age of eight while she was walking to her elementary school only a few blocks from the dilapidated two-room shack that was her home, she was spat upon and called a “Nigger” by a group of Democrats who were passing by in a car. At the age of twelve, she was forced to run and hide in a nearby store when she was approached menacingly on a public street by members of the Ku Klux Klan who were Democrats dressed in white robes and hoods. She suffered the indignity of being forced to attend poorly-funded segregated schools, sit in the back of public transportation buses and sit in segregated balconies of movie theaters. She was precluded from using public facilities, including rest rooms and water fountains, by displays of shameful signs marked “For Whites Only.” She recalls the deep sense of outrage and humiliation she felt when she frequently viewed a sign in a public park not far from her home that read: “Niggers and Dogs Not Allowed.” At the age of thirteen, she witnessed her family of six being torn asunder after her father became unemployed due to the racist practices of the Democrats and, under the welfare system established by Democrats, public financial assistance could not be provided if her father stayed with the family. For the loss of her family life, she still grieves. The welfare system set in motion a cycle of generational poverty that still plagues a branch of her family today where single mothers subsist on government handouts. When Colonel Rice became eligible to vote, she was blocked at the door of the Atlanta city hall by a Democrat who wanted to prevent her from registering to vote because she was a Republican, as were most African Americans at that time, including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. At great risk of physical harm, she pushed her way into the government building and boldly registered to vote. She was aware of numerous African Americans who were brutalized by Democrats and lived in fear because those Democrats who occupied positions of power, including governors, mayors, judges and sheriffs, would never be prosecuted for their brutality. In the early 1970’s, while she was serving her country in uniform and walking on a street in Democratic Party-controlled San Francisco, California, she was spat upon and called a “baby killer.” As an African American woman who was personally and irreparably harmed by the racist and socialist practices of the Democratic Party, she represents herself in supporting Wayne Perryman on behalf of himself and the African American Citizens of the United States’ appeal to this Court.

SUMMARY OF ARGUMENT

As a matter of equity and in the interest of fairness, the Court should order a permanent injunction requiring the Respondents to issue a formal apology for the irreparable injury suffered by the Petitioner at the hands of the Respondents.

An apology by the Respondents would be in keeping with the action by the North Carolina Democratic Party that issued a unanimous apology on January 20, 2007 for the Democratic Party’s 1898 murderous rampage against African Americans in Wilmington, North Carolina. The apology came as a result of the 1898 Wilmington Race Riot Commission Report which determined that the Democratic Party was solely responsible for the 1898 race riot and was submitted on May 31, 2006.

ARGUMENT
A. Since The Petitioner Meets The Four-factor Equity Test, Injunctive Relief Should Be Granted.

Principles of equity that are well-established provide for the Petitioner to receive a permanent injunction by the Court because the Petitioner meets the four-factor test: (1) the Petitioner has suffered an irreparable injury at the hands of the Respondents; (2) the remedy of monetary damages available at law are inadequate to compensate for that injury; (3) considering the balance of hardships between the Petitioner and the Respondents, a remedy in equity is warranted; and (4) the pubic interest would not be disserved by a permanent injunction. See, e.g., Weinberger v. Romero-Barcelo, 456 U. S. 305, 311.313 (1982); Amoco Production Co. v. Gambell, 480 U. S. 531, 542 (1987).

B. A Formal Apology was Issued by The Democratic Party in North Carolina

The historic apology, issued unanimously on January 20, 2007 by the North Carolina Democratic Executive Committee, composed of over 700 party leaders and activists from 100 counties, resulted from the1898 Wilmington Race Riot Commission Report of May 31, 2006. The report concluded that the Democratic Party was solely responsible for the 1898 murderous rampage against African Americans. That reign of terror led to the Democratic Party takeover from Republicans, mainly African American Republicans, who controlled the City of Wilmington during the period known as Reconstruction. See the report, which was commissioned by the state of North Carolina and contains the gruesome details about the killing of African Americans and the usurping of governmental powers by the Democratic Party, on the Internet at: www.ah.dcr.state.nc.us/1898-wrrc/.

If the North Carolina Democratic Executive Committee can formally apologize for the 1898 Wilmington Race Riot inflicted upon African Americans, is there a reason why the Respondents should not formally apologize for all of the other atrocities and harm inflicted upon African Americans by the Respondents, specifically for the period 1792 to 2002 as identified by the Petitioner?

CONCLUSION

The Amici humbly request that the United States Supreme Court reverse the decision of the Ninth Circuit and grant the Petitioner injunctive relief as a matter of equity and in the interest of fairness.

Under the penalty of perjury of the United States the foregoing is true and correct.

Signed this 12th day of March 2007.

Respectfully submitted,

Padding Her Civil Rights Résumé

"While Hillary Rodham Clinton came out second best to Barack Obama in their oratorical duel at Selma, Ala., a week ago, the real problem with her speech concerned her claimed attachment to Martin Luther King Jr. as a high school student in 1963. How, then, could she have been a 'Goldwater Girl' during the following year's presidential election?"

The Accent Is on Being All Things to All People

"You've heard the grumbling about other presidential candidates. Is Barack Obama black enough? Is Rudy Giuliani white enough?

Is Barack Black Enough? That's Not The Point.

"Statements such as these only justify racial stereotyping that keeps America's cultural tensions alive and well. While the topic of Obama's blackness is covered on every news channel from MSNBC to CNN, Americans still owe it to the assurance of their own integrity to ask what being black, or white, or any race for that matter, has to do with being the President of the United States? At some point, Americans are going to have to look beyond the myopia that allows racial generalizations to become fodder for political news stories. Is Barack black enough? Maybe? There's no right answer. When it comes to race, culture, and identity, everybody's got an opinion and we all think ours is more justified than the next. When posing the question of racial identity against a presidential candidacy, it reaches a point where distinguishing who is right from who is wrong is simply no longer relevant."

Why Sharpton Is Badmouthing Obama

"To say that Sharpton is jealous is about as obvious as saying that America's not about to elect a black man who wears his hair conked. Why should the media again seek out Rev. Sharpton, a self-appointed leader, when it can call on Sen. Obama, the first competitive African-American presidential candidate? Why go to Sharpton to get a quick quip on how we're losing the war on poverty, when you can go to top-tier candidate Obama for a substantial response on what he'd do about us losing the war in Iraq?

Obama Says There's No Beef Between Him and Sharpton

That's not good,' Sharpton told the National Newspaper Publishers Association News Service. 'If he's got more than half of Black people saying they're not supporting him, what does that say?'

"Sharpton said that his comments were in no way meant to be critical; it was simply an analysis.

"'I'm not trying to in any way impair his candidacy,' Sharpton told NNPA."

Barack Obama: White Enough for Caucasian America?

"Media coverage has focused on whether Barack Obama, 2008 presidential candidate, is Black enough for African-American voters.(1) The fact that he is not descended from African-American slaves has caused some Blacks to hesitate in supporting him. On the other hand, little analysis has been made about Barack Obama's Whiteness. This non-partisan report will evaluate whether Barack Obama's White ancestry and White background will make him sufficiently White to appeal to Caucasian-American voters. "

Almost every black political, religious and civil rights leader in the city is lending support to Tillman, who scored just 43 percent in the first round of voting, finishing a mere 400 votes ahead of Dowell....The alderman was one of Obama's earliest supporters in his U.S. Senate bid. But others are wondering how Obama's decision to back such a die-hard proponent of slavery reparations will play in Iowa and New Hampshire. They may have a point."

In 1856, the Republican Party convention in Cincinnati said: "All efforts of the abolitionists, or others, made to induce Congress to interfere with questions of slavery, or to take incipient steps in relation thereto, are calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences, and all such efforts have the inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people."

True or False

The Democratic Party platform of 1860 said: "That the normal condition of all the territory of the United States is that of freedom; That as our Democratic fathers, when they had abolished slavery in all our national territory, ordained that 'no person should be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law,' it becomes our duty by legislation, whenever such legislation is necessary, to maintain this provision of the Constitution against all attempts to violate it; and we deny the authority of Congress, of a territorial legislature, or of any individuals, to give legal existence of Slavery in any Territory of the United States...That we brand the recent re-opening of the African slave-trade, under the cover of our national flag, aided by perversions of judicial power, as a shame to (a) crime against humanity and a burning (for) our country and age; and we call upon Congress to take prompt and efficient measures for the total and final suppression of the execrable traffic."

Boycotts Boycotts Boycotts

Years ago there was a Black boycott in Chicago against the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, and at least one local Chicago television station. That boycott was supposed to have an effect on the White media there, to "send a message."

However, I talked to a Black newsstand owner in the neighborhood. He said his business dropped off because of that boycott.

Black newsstand owners were suffering, not the White media, as a result of the boycott. If they wanted to boycott something, they should have boycotted the advertisers who was the lifeblood of the media.

For the first time in my life I thought, "am I actually smarter than those "Black leaders" who organized and supported that boycott?"

Things I Remember

"Almost every Black person in America has had experiences dealing with racism. My experiences are not unique. In fact, there were many more than I'm relating here, but these are the ones that stand out in my mind.

"Things I Remember

"I've often been asked if I hate white people for what they did to me and other Black people. I dislike the individual people who've wronged me and I despise the racism and ignorance that spawned their behavior.

"Hating an entire group of people is a self-destructive waste of time."

He also said: "At some point I realized that I can't live my life down to the level of other people's ignorance."

Joel Augustus Rogers: Negro historian in history, time, and space

"Joel Augustus Rogers was, as were his contemporaries, a man of his times. Like all humans, Rogers was a product of his social existence. This reality led him to a social consciousness peculiar to the historically specific social relationships in which he, as a result of his social class and 'racial category,' had lived and struggled. White versus Black was the social relationship that produced a disparity in social existence and, therefore, social and political thinking within each racial category. Historiography, as a mold of social thinking, developed its own dialectics of historical interpretation within the social relationship of American capitalist political economy. (3) Slavery, peonage, sharecropping, and Jim Crow produced a historical mindset within an antagonistic polarity between White and Black America. The historically defined social relationship that Joel Augustus Rogers struggled within was characterized by Rayford Logan's term 'The Nadir.' (4) This lowest point in African American history was indelibly stamped by what Allen Trelease termed 'White Terror.' (5)

Hitler and the Negro

"Adolph Hitler inspired no doubt by the valorous conduct of the Negro in the last World War declares in Mein Kampf that Negroes are 'half-apes.'

"This, however, is far from being the opinion of pre-Hitler Germany if one is to judge by the various monuments and pictures of Negroes in German museums and other public places."

J. A. ROGERS (1883-1966)

"Joel Augustus Rogers was born September 6, 1883 at Negril, Jamaica. Very little is known about his early schooling. The historian is said to have had a 'good basic education' but lacked higher formal education.

"J.A. Rogers immigrated to the United States in 1906 and became a naturalized citizen in 1917. Despite his light complexion and mulatto background, Rogers bitterly discovered that Black people were all treated the same, no matter the complexion. Rogers, however, rejected the dogma of white superiority, even as a child. In a class and color conscious Jamaica, the young Rogers observed, 'I had noticed that some of my schoolmates were unmixed blacks and were, some of them, more brilliant than some of the white ones.' Rogers grew up around Blacks who were physicians and lawyers--graduates of 'the best English and Scottish Universities.' This realization that the doctrine of white superiority was contradicted by the talent and expertise of Black intellect inspired Rogers to begin his research into the Black experience.

"J.A. Rogers published his first book, the 87 page 'From Superman to Man' in 1917. At the time he wrote the book, he was working as a Pullman porter out of Chicago. Rogers had gone to Chicago to Study art. Rogers was one of the first and few African historians to use art extensively in helping to validate the achievements of African people.

"J.A. Rogers' search for truth led him to examine the African blood lines of Europeans and Americans. His signal work, 'Nature Knows No Color-Line' and the three-volume set, 'Sex and Race' destroyed the myth of Aryan race purity.

"Rogers' other historical focus was on producing biographical portraits of prominent African personages. In 1931, he published 'The World's Greatest Men of African Descent' and in 1947, published 'The World's Great Men of Color 3000 B.C. to 1946 A.D.' Joel Augustus Rogers died on his birthday, September 6, 1966."

Should the Thurmond family pay direct reparations to the Sharpton family?

Is that a fair question?

"Should the Thurmond family pay direct reparations to the Sharpton family....I know that none of the currently living Thurmonds or Sharptons participated in slaveownership or were slaves, but the law allows for debts to be owed beyond death. The Thurmond family likely had an estate and family assets that passed from generation to generation. If all of this can be traced, should we allow for some form of direct reparation in law? Is there at least a moral obligation here?"

Their God In Jail

Years ago on television, I saw a 30 -minute program by a religious group (more accurately "cult") that claimed that their leader at time was God in the flesh. I don't know the details, but it seems their "God" was in jail or prison.

On the program, I heard the chants, "Release our God! Release our God!" Now, think about that carefully.

If that guy was actually God, don't you think he could have just walked through a few walls? Or bend the bars of his jail cell like Superman? Or he could have overpowered the guards, do some Matrix kung-fu or something, because he should have been omnipotent? Why could he have not wiped out the whole prison staff with a single flick of the wrist?

Logically, it seems that the government had more power than that "God." How can that kind of "God" be that kind of "all-powerful" being if you have to beg the government, mere weak mortals, to release him? What kind of jive-time "God" is that to follow?

"Snoop Dogg's Doggystyle is a mixed hardcore pornography and hip-hop music video featuring the music of rapper Snoop Dogg and presented by him. It was released in 2001. It was the first hardcore video ever listed on the Billboard music video sales chart. And also because of its huge success it started a trend where rappers are put into the mainstream of the porn industry by hosting x-rated movies. Many films of the genre followed were made by Mystikal, Too Short, Ice-T and Yukmouth just to name a few. It also allowed Hustler to overgrow its boundaries by launching new subsidiaries for their recently formed fashion line and CD-label. The scenes were shot at Snoop Dogg's house in Claremont, CA."

Reparations: Cash Payments or Something Else?

"Some proposals have called for cash payments from the U.S. government. The question of who if any should receive such payments, who should pay them and in what amount, has been highly controversial, since the United States Census does not track descent from slaves or slave owners and relies on self-reported racial categories. Since all slaves have long since died and the statute of limitations has long expired no court has seriously supported black reparations."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reparations_for_slavery

"He finds the idea of individual monetary restitution in the form of checks sent to African-Americans 'a cheap form of forgiveness and an insult to those millions of Africans who lost their lives to the slave trade.'"
http://bankrupt.com/CAR_Public/001113.MBX

"When asked if the government should grant "cash payments" to blacks, nine out of ten white Americans rejected the proposal, while a strong majority of blacks favored it, by 55 to 37 percent."

"This year, Dawson and Bobo, both professors of African and African American Studies, sought to clarify Black and white attitudes toward three reparations proposals: cash payments to African Americans as individuals; scholarship funds for disadvantaged African American youth; or the establishment of a Community Trust, to be used to rebuild Black schools and community infrastructure and foster small business."

"During the 1970s, the implementation of a reparations plan was discussed in terms of direct cash payments to those of African ancestry, similar to the model of reparations for Japanese Americans interred during World War II (with the obvious distinction that while the payments for Japanese Americans were made only to those who were actually alive during the period, payments to African Americans would necessarily be to the descendants of black slaves)."

"The amount concerned is absurd. Harper’s magazine estimates the total of reparations due at over 100 trillion dollars, based on 222,505,049 hours of forced labour between 1619 and 1865, subject to compound interest since. Dr Robert Brock, a proponent of reparations, suggests $500,000 per descendant. Given the fact that most African Americans have at least one slave ancestor somewhere in their family tree, this equals a mere $15 trillion – or a surtax of $50,000 on every non-African American man, woman and child in the USA (higher than the median family annual income)."

"Dr. Browne suggests four possible methods for payment of reparations:
1. A per capita cash payment to each African American on a designated date, based on a pro rata share of the finally agreed on reparations debt.
2. Investment of the reparations payments in income-producing assets, with the income allocated annually on a per capita basis.
3. Use of the payment to fund massive government-sponsored programs to raise educational and skill levels, provide housing, and generally improve overall economic status.
4. A collective payment to the "community" to create conditions necessary for 'takeoff' in the Rostovian sense."

Whereas the healing of wounds begins with an apology, and the Democratic Party has never apologized for their horrific atrocities and racist practices against African Americans during the past two hundred years, nor held accountable for the residual impact that those atrocities and practices are having on us today,

Whereas as a result of the1898 Wilmington Race Riot Commission Report of May 31, 2006, the North Carolina Democratic Party issued a unanimous apology on January 20, 2007 for the Democratic Party’s 1898 murderous rampage against blacks,

Whereas in 2007 the Democrats in control of Congress refused to pass the H.R. 40 bill, Commission to Study Reparation Proposals for African Americans Act, that was first introduced in 1989 and was re-introduced in every Congress since then by black Democrat Congressman John Conyers of Michigan,

Whereas inner-city minister Rev. Wayne Perryman wrote a book, Unfounded Loyalty: An In-depth Look Into The Love Affair Between Blacks and Democrats, and filed a lawsuit against the Democratic Party on December 10, 2004, but, after admitting their history of racism under oath in court, the Democrats refused to apologize,

Whereas history shows that the Democratic Party through its racist agenda and “States’ Rights” claim to own slaves, sought to protect and preserve the institution of slavery from 1792 to 1865, thus enslaving millions of African Americans, while the Republican Party was started in 1854 as the anti-slavery party and fought to free blacks from slavery and championed civil rights for blacks,

Whereas the Democratic Party enacted Fugitive Slave laws to keep blacks from escaping from plantations; instigated the 1856 Dred Scott decision which legally classified blacks as property; passed the Missouri Compromise to spread slavery into 50% of the new Northern states; and passed the Kansas-Nebraska Act designed to spread slavery into all of the new Northern states,
Whereas the Democratic Party in the South formed the Confederacy, seceded from the Union and fought a Civil War to expand slavery where over 600,000 citizens were killed, including many thousand blacks,

Whereas starting in 1861, anti-Civil War Democrats in the North were called “copperheads” like the poisonous snake because they (a) wanted to appease the South and accept a negotiated peace that would have resulted in an independent Confederacy where blacks were kept in slavery, and (b) showed their deep opposition to the Civil War draft by taking their anger out on blacks, murdering and maiming blacks in virtually every Northern state,

Whereas anti-Civil War Democrats in New York engaged in “Four Days of Terror” against the city’s black population from July 13-16, 1863, and the anti-Civil War chant of the Democrats, as reported by one Pennsylvania newspaper, was: "Willing to fight for Uncle Sam", but not “for Uncle Sambo,"

Whereas the anti-Civil War Democrats verbally attacked Republican President Abraham Lincoln because he wanted to free the slaves through war and grant blacks civil rights, and drafted Northern men into the army to fight and die to make his Emancipation Proclamation a reality – a Proclamation that became the source of the Juneteenth celebrations that occur in black communities today,

Whereas after the Civil War, the Republican Party (a) pushed to amend the Constitution to grant blacks freedom (13th Amendment), citizenship (14th Amendment) and the right to vote (15th Amendment); (b) passed the Civil Rights Acts of 1866 and 1875; and (c) designed Reconstruction, a ten-year period of unprecedented political power for African Americans,
Whereas anti-civil rights Democrat Andrew Johnson became president when Republican President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, and after the Civil War, the Democratic Party fought to end Reconstruction and deny blacks the promised “40 acres and a mule;” fought to overturn all civil rights legislation from the 1860’s to the 1960’s; and passed repressive legislation including the Black Codes and Jim Crow laws,

Whereas the book A Short History of Reconstruction by the renowned historian, Dr. Eric Foner, revealed that: (a) the Ku Klux Klan was founded in 1866 by Democrats as a Tennessee social club; (b) the Ku Klux Klan became a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party, the planter class, and all those who desired the restoration of white supremacy; and (c) the Ku Klux Klan spread into other Southern states, launching a ‘reign of terror‘ against Republican leaders, black and white,

Whereas the book A Short History of Reconstruction by Dr. Eric Foner exposed the facts that: (a) the Hayes-Tilden Compromise of 1877 was an attempt by Republicans to get the Democrats to stop lynching Republicans, black and white, and respect the rights of blacks; and (b) contrary to legend, President Rutherford Hayes did not remove the last federal troops from the South, but merely ordered federal troops surrounding the South Carolina and Louisiana statehouses to return to their barracks,

Whereas after taking control of Congress in the late 1800’s, the Democratic Party passed the Repeal Act of 1894 that overturned all civil rights legislation passed by the Republicans, including the Civil Rights Acts of 1866 and 1875,

Whereas the Democratic Party supported the Plessy v. Ferguson decision in 1896 that established the “separate but equal” segregation doctrine,

Whereas historical documents show that: (a) in an effort to stop the Democrats from lynching and denying civil rights to blacks, the NAACP was founded on Republican President Abraham Lincoln’s 100th birthday, February 12, 1909, by white Republicans Oswald Garrison Villard, Mary White Ovington and William English Walling; and (b) the first black general secretary of the NAACP was black Republican James Weldon Johnson who became the general secretary of the NAACP in 1920 and, in 1900, wrote the song, “Lift Every Voice,” known as the “Black National Anthem” in collaboration with his brother, John Rosamond Johnson,

Whereas after Democrat President Woodrow was elected in 1912 and while Congress was controlled by the Democrats, all black American civil employees where pushed out of federal government jobs, and the greatest number of bills proposing racial segregation and discrimination were introduced than had ever been proposed in our nation’s history,

Whereas even though Democrat President Franklin D. Roosevelt received the vote of many black Americans due to his “New Deal,” he banned black American newspapers from the military because he was convinced the newspapers were communists and rejected anti-lynching laws pushed by Republicans, as well as efforts by Republicans to establish a permanent Civil Rights Commission that did not get established until 1958 under Republican President Dwight Eisenhower, (He rejected anti-lynching laws?????)

Whereas Democrat President Harry Truman not only rejected Republican efforts to enact anti-lynching laws and establish a permanent Civil Rights Commission, but also failed to enforce his 1948 Executive Order designed to desegregate the military, an order that was not effectively enforced until Republican President Dwight Eisenhower was elected,

Whereas with the party slogan: "Segregation Forever!," the Dixiecrats, who were Democrats, (a) formed the States' Rights Democratic Party for the presidential election of 1948; (b) remained Democrats for all local elections and all subsequent national elections; and (c) did not all migrate to the Republican Party as Democrats today falsely claim, but instead the Dixiecrats declared that they would rather vote for a “yellow dog” than a Republican because the Republican Party was known as the party for blacks,

Whereas during the civil rights era of the 1960's, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who was a Republican, was fighting the Democrats including: (a) Democrat Georgia Governor Lester Maddox who famously brandished ax handles to prevent blacks from patronizing his restaurant; (b) Democrat Public Safety Commissioner "Bull" Connor in Birmingham who let loose vicious dogs and turned fire hoses on black civil rights demonstrators; and (c) Democrat Alabama Governor George Wallace who stood in front of the Alabama schoolhouse in 1963 and thundered, "Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever,"

Whereas the Democratic Party supported the Topeka, Kansas school board in the Brown v. the Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas (a 1954 Supreme Court decision by Chief Justice Earl Warren who was appointed by Republican President Dwight Eisenhower) which declared that the “separate but equal” doctrine violated the 14th Amendment and ended school segregation,
Whereas in 1954, Democrat Arkansas Governor Orville Faubus tried to prevent the desegregation of a Little Rock public school, resulting in Republican President Dwight Eisenhower sending federal troops to prevent violence and enforce a court order desegregating the Little Rock school,

Whereas Democratic President John F. Kennedy was not a civil rights advocate because he: (a) voted against the 1957 Civil Rights Law (that was pushed by Republican President Dwight Eisenhower); (b) opposed the 1963 March on Washington by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (that was organized by black Republican A. Phillip Randolph); (c) authorized the FBI (supervised by his brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy) to wiretap and investigate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on suspicion of being a communist in order to undermine that Civil Rights leader; (d) was later criticized by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for ignoring civil rights issues; and (e) only grudgingly agreed to make a telephone call to get Dr. King, Jr. out of the Birmingham jail after Dr. King, Sr. requested Kennedy’s help,

Whereas due to the nearly 100 years of opposition to civil rights laws by Democrats, Republican Senator Barry Goldwater, who ran for president against Lyndon Johnson in 1964, sought to force the Democrats in the South to stop passing discriminatory laws and thus end the need to continuously enact federal civil rights legislation, but his efforts were not heeded by the Democrats who later unjustly criticized Goldwater,

Whereas Democrat President Lyndon Johnson could not have achieved passage of civil rights legislation without the support of Republicans due to the strong opposition of Democrats, and in his 4,500-word State of the Union Address delivered on January 4, 1965, Johnson mentioned scores of topics for federal action, but only thirty five words were devoted to civil rights and not one word about voting rights,

Whereas it was Republican Senator Everett Dirksen from Illinois, not Democrat President Lyndon Johnson, who was key to the passage of civil rights legislation in 1957, 1960 and 1964, as well as the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Civil Rights Act of 1968 which prohibited discrimination in housing,

Whereas Democratic Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia, a former “Keagle” in the Ku Klux Klan, made a 14-hour filibuster speech in the Senate in June 1964 in an unsuccessful effort to block passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act,

Whereas because Republican Senator Everett successfully fought to pass civil rights laws in the face of strong opposition to civil rights laws by the Democrats, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. hailed Senator Dirksen’s “able and courageous leadership;” and "The Chicago Defender," the largest black-owned daily at that time, praised Senator Dirksen “for the grand manner of his generalship behind the passage of the best civil rights measures that have ever been enacted into law since Reconstruction,”

Whereas the statement by Democrat President Lyndon Johnson about losing the South after passage of the 1964 civil rights law was not made out of a concern that racist Democrats would suddenly join the Republican Party that was fighting for the civil rights of blacks, but instead, was an expression of fear that the racist Democrats would again form a third party, such as the short-lived States' Rights Democratic Party,

Whereas after Democrat President Lyndon Johnson expressed his concern that the racist Democrats in the South would be lost after the passage of the 1964 civil rights laws, Johnson’s concern came true when Alabama’s Democrat Governor George C. Wallace in 1968 started the American Independent Party that attracted other racist candidates, including Democrat Atlanta Mayor Lester Maddox,

Whereas in March of 1968, while referring to the fact that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. left Memphis, Tennessee after riots broke out where a teenager was killed, Democrat Senator Robert Byrd called Dr. King a "trouble-maker" who starts trouble, but runs like a coward after trouble is ignited, which motivated Dr. King to return to Memphis a few weeks later where he was assassinated on April 4, 1968,

Whereas Democrats expressed little, if any, concern when the racially segregated South voted solidly for Democrats; yet unfairly deride Republicans because of the thirty-year odyssey of the South switching to the Republican Party that began in the 1970's with President Richard Nixon's "Southern Strategy," which was an effort on the part of Nixon to get Christians in the South to stop voting for Democrats who did not share their values, and who were discriminating against blacks,

Whereas Republican President Richard Nixon established Affirmative Action as a merit-based system to help African Americans prosper with his 1969 Philadelphia Plan (crafted by black Republican Art Fletcher) that set the nation's first goals and timetables, as well as his 1972 Equal Employment Opportunity Act that made merit-based Affirmative Action programs the law of our nation, but Democrats turned Affirmative Action into an unfair quota system;

Whereas Democrat Senator Robert Byrd who was a fierce opponent of desegregating the military complained in one letter: “I would rather die a thousand times and see old glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again than see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen of the wilds,”

Whereas in the early 1970’s, Democrat Senator Robert Byrd pushed to have the Senate’s main office building named after a former “Dixiecrat,” Democrat Senator Richard Russell who was Senator Byrd’s mentor and leading opponent of ant-lynching legislation, and in 2001 Senator Byrd was forced to apologize for using the N-word on television,

Whereas Democrats did not denounce Democrat Senator Christopher Dodd who praised Senator Robert Byrd as someone who would have been "a great senator for any moment," including the Civil War; yet Democrats denounced Senator Trent Lott for his remarks about Senator Strom Thurmond who was never in the Ku Klux Klan and, after he became a Republican, defended blacks against lynching and the discriminatory poll taxes imposed on blacks by Democrats,

Whereas Democrats today demean and discriminate against blacks including (a) Democrat Senator Ted Kennedy who called black judicial nominees “Neanderthals;” (b) Democrat Senator Harry Reid who slurred Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas as someone who could not write good English; (c) Democrat Senator Joe Biden who boasted that his home state of Delaware was a slave state and slandered all black former presidential candidates (Rep. Shirley Chisholm who became the first black and the first woman to run for president in 1972; Senator Carol Mosely Braum; Rev. Jesse Jackson; and Rev. Al Sharpton) by declaring that Senator Barack Hussein Obama (the son of an white American woman and a man from Kenya) is the first “clean” black presidential candidate; (d) Democratic Party operatives who depicted Maryland Lieutenant Governor Michael Steele on the Internet as a “Simple Sambo;” (e) cartoonist Jeff Danziger and Pat Oliphant who portrayed Secretary of State Dr. Condoleezza Rice as a “stooge” and a bare foot, “Ignorant Mammy;” (f) Democratic Senator John F. Kerry who denounced Affirmative Action on the floor of the Senate in the 1990’s; (g) Senator Hillary Clinton who set the tone for the current race-based slander when she insulted Mahatma Gandhi of India who was a role model for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by calling Gandhi a gas station attendant; and (h) President Bill Clinton who – following in the footsteps of his mentor J. William Fulbright, a staunch segregationist – refused to enforce a court-ordered Affirmative Action Plan while president and was himself sued for discriminating against his black employees while he was the Governor of Arkansas,

Whereas the Democratic Party’s use of deception and fear to intimidate black Americans into voting for Democrats is consistent with the Democratic Party’s heritage of racism that included sanctioning of slavery and kukluxery – a perversion of moral sentiment among leaders of the Democratic Party; and the Democratic Party’s racist legacy bode ill until this generation of African Americans,

Now, therefore, for the documented atrocities and accumulated wrongs inflicted upon African Americans, we demand a formal written apology from the Democratic Party.

Following Newspapers' Lead, N.C. Dems May Apologize for 1898 Riots

"Last year, North Carolina's two largest newspapers -- The News & Observer of Raleigh and The Charlotte Observer -- produced a 16-page special section last year to detail the Wilmington race riots more than 100 years ago, including an examination of the newspapers' role in fanning white discontent in advance of the 1898 elections."

Democrats Apologize For Fomenting Race Riots

"State Democratic leaders unanimously approved a formal apology Saturday acknowledging the party's role in a bloody race riot more than 100 years ago.

"The riots drove hundreds of black residents from coastal Wilmington and killed dozens more in 1898. The apology comes eight months after a state-appointed commission concluded the insurrection was instigated by white supremacists affiliated with the Democratic Party.

"It is the only recorded coup d'etat in U.S. history, according to the commission."

Reagan and A Cheeseburger

Years ago I visited my former Cub Scout Den Mother in a hospital. She had heart surgery. Her son who I grew up with also was there. We both went to the cafeteria. He asked me to go out and he would met me out in the hall. I saw him put a cheeseburger under his coat.

Later when I took him home I called him on it. This was in the 80's when Ronald Reagan was president. He said "Reagan made me do it! Reagan ain't for poor folks."

This guy was that way even when Carter, Ford, Nixon, and Johnson was in office. In high school he would say "Gangster (not gangsta) Love!" and get over anyway he could. He grew up in a middle-class neighborhood before it became "the hood." But he identified with the ghetto.

He is now dead from a liver disease.

My point is quit the blame game.

What Kind Of Crap Is This?

Who do I warn? Do I warn the drug dealer who is destroying the community? Do I warn the hoodlums who were breaking in people's homes, including mine where I lost a computer, printers, fax machine, and TV? Do I warn the punk who robbed me at gunpoint on my front porch?

Warn the residents who are trying to live in peace and warn me please, NOT THE CRIMINALS.

Why do the "brotha's" get more sympathy than we do?


The Terrorists Around The Corner

"Federal prosecutors said Tony Maurice Horne Jr. and Troemaine Herbert Storey, both of Glen Burnie, and Jerome Otto Waters Jr. of Annapolis were part of a gang that used violence and intimidation to keep competitors out and silence people who might go to the police.

"The words 'stop snitching' were spray-painted on the street in several Severn neighborhoods, a prosecutor said."

Seeking a victory over intimidators

"Although the witness survived and, from his hospital bed, identified Myron Gladney as his attacker, the shooting is one of a string of such incidents plaguing Baltimore's criminal justice system, according to city prosecutors. Intimidation routinely ranges from threatening gestures in the courtroom or attacks that leave witnesses injured or dead, as young men walk the streets wearing 'Stop Snitchin' T-shirts and a video warning witnesses not to snitch proves to be a best-seller."

Booker T. Washington said:

"There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs....There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public."
