It is a misuse of language to refer to the living and working conditions of our ancestors and progenitors as plantations. They were â€śzoosâ€ť in every aspect of the word. This is why the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 is far more pernicious than any Mexican wall would be. New York “debarred” me for destroying the “horror chamber” of Steven Pagones.
An attempt to associate, with another person of African ancestry who is caged and addicted to white supremacists, is dangerous. These caged animals are â€ścluelessâ€ť and â€śglueless.â€ť Any attempt to break them out of their cages will first cause a violent confrontation from other two-legged animals; that is, plantation overseers.
These plantation overseers have ordered censorship of the zoos. It is illegal for me to be making sounds within the box of New York City. The â€śAfrican drumâ€ť has been banned. My rhythms in New York have been banned from the airwaves. This rule is being enforced by the Federal Communications Commission.
In 2010, the late James Patnaude and I went to upstate New York with petitions to get the necessary signatures for the freedom of â€ścagedâ€ť Blacks. I am opposed to two-legged animals living in â€ścages.â€ť Patnaude was of the same mind. It was refreshing to be associated with a real human being. It had been years since I had associated with anyone, in the movement, with the likes of his humanity.
While in Syracuse NY, two “zoo workers” spotted Patnaude and I seeking signatures for petitions of â€ścagedâ€ť Blacks in New York. We made the mistake, in the course of a conversation with a “zoo worker,” of glorifying Harriet Tubman, who had a home in nearby, Auburn, NY. The zookeeper went â€śballistic.â€ť This is his quote: “Fu_ _k Harriet Tubman. That bi_ _ h wasn’t sh_t.” For Patnaude and I, these were â€śfighting words.â€ť We threw down our clipboards. It was on.
We were exercising a right to associate with others to create an organization opposed to Negroes living in cages and relying on the Democratic Party to dole out stale crumbs. These “Negroes” were off the Cuomo plantation. They were enrolled in the Democratic Party. Tubman had opposed the Democratic Party.
Gov. Mario Cuomo had hunted Tawana Brawley like the governor of Georgia had hunted and posted a reward for David Walker for publishing Walker’s Appeal. An advocate of Walker’s Appeal became a subject of a â€ścapital offenseâ€ť in Georgia. The governor’s goons assassinated David Walker in Massachusetts.
To “Negroes,” Gov. Mario Cuomo was so nice they elected him â€śthrice.â€ť In 2010, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, his son, not only won the gubernatorial race but he also destroyed the Freedom Party automatic ballot status to the delight of “Negroes” enrolled in the Democratic Party. The Freedom Party had acquired enough signatures to become a political party based on a legislative, rule of thumb of â€śthriceâ€ť the threshold.
By 2013, I had to rely on others to finance an advertisement, in the Amsterdam News, against the mayoral candidacy of William de Blasio. Negroes had acquired jungle fever. I recognized the â€śWilt Chamberlain Syndrome.â€ť Chamberlain had taken on the traits of zookeepers; that is, of a two-legged mammal and unfit for marriage.
Negroes have been in â€ścagesâ€ť for too long. They are unable to think on a basic level. President Lyndon Johnson refused to enfranchise Blacks until he was convinced that they had been thoroughly domesticated. After a Malcolm X sighting, New York, in June 1964, passed the Malcolm X law. It is now “good” law nationwide.
When William de Blasio ran for mayor of New York City, I asked only one question of Mr. de Blasio: Would he allow Black children to learn “Our Story?â€ť The answer was No! Black children must and will be taught “His Story” which is without â€śsurvival skills.â€ť
This is Menticide, and like the Malcolm X law, violates the UN Charter. For me, the 2013 mayoralty was a no-brainer. I was the only person in New York City to initiate and sign an advertisement against his 2013 mayoralty. Blacks should give thanks to the financiers of the ad.
Today, members of the Steering Committee of the Freedom Party have proven not to be a friend of Blacks in general and me in particular. This is the tell-tale sign of informants. Informants are opposed to being â€śvetted.â€ť The Steering Committee of the Freedom Party refuses to submit resumes.
They are attracted to the Seven Million Dollars that the Washington Post reported about on September 1, 2010. They have endangered our rights to enjoy habitable quarters and have breached a promissory estoppel. We relied on a promise to our detriment in CPW Towers, LLC v. Maddox, Index No. L&T 86146 (Civ. Ct., N.Y. Co. 2014).
Happy (belated) Birthday! Harriet Tubman
