Tonight, United African Movement, Freedom Party and Freedom Retreat for Boys and Girls will start a two-part series on Eric Garner, including the three books Blacks must read, the chokehold applied by rogue cops of the NYPD to Eric Garner to murder him, probable causes for arrests, grand jury abuses and symbolic speech under the First Amendment that will be used at the 2014 African-American Day Parade in Harlem.
The venue for Part I of the series will be held tonight, Wednesday, September 17 at the Brooklyn Christian Center, 1061 Atlantic Avenue (bet. Franklin and Classon) in Brooklyn at 7:00 p.m. Take the “C” train to Franklin Avenue. It will focus on the psychological legacy of slavery.
The venue for Part II of the series will be held at Friendship Baptist Church, 141 West 131st Street in Harlem on Thursday, September 18 at 7:00 p.m. Part I will specifically address the three books that Blacks must read to speak the language of and to communicate with whites and Part II will specifically address grand jury abuses that lead to immunizing rogue cops.
Part II – No Taping
On this Wednesday, September 17, 2014, at Brooklyn Christian Center, for the first hour, I will identify and discuss three books that Blacks must read. The first book was written about the psychological legacy of slavery. The other two books are based on competition. This country unabashedly practices “Social Darwinism.” The master-slave relationship prohibits Blacks from competing against whites.
Descendants of enslaved Africans are not allowed to practice competition. Instead, Blacks are given social welfare programs. This is our reward. Business, law, politics, sports, arts and entertainment and the top echelons of militarism are staffed by white males. They do not have to face a glass ceiling. Blacks are not encouraged to participate in these disciplines.
HELP is non-existent in the Black community. HELP is an acronym for History, Ethics, Logic and Philosophy. The Founding Fathers of HELP are Dr. Carter G. Woodson, Charles Hamilton Houston, Melvin Tolson and Marcus Garvey. None of these men are widely promoted in the Black community because whites will never promote our architects.
The Brooklyn Christian Center is located at 1061 Atlantic Avenue (bet. Classon and Franklin) in Brooklyn. This forum will start at 7:00 p.m. Take the “C” train to Franklin Avenue. No Black person should receive a high school diploma until he or she fully comprehends, in detail, their contents. It explains why Blacks will never, among other things, maintain and operate a political party.
Last week, Yah Ammi, of the Human Rights and Justice Committee of Ferguson, MO asked me to come to Ferguson and help its residents secure a special prosecutor in the death of Michael Brown. I was flattered. The people of Ferguson know the difference between an “ambulance chaser” and a “social engineer.” They know that I am the only attorney in the United States to have secured a special prosecutor on two, separate occasions.
In 1990, New York sought to resolve a political question; that is, how to “disbar” an attorney who had never been convicted of a crime; had never suffered a disciplinary complaint from a client; and had never been held in contempt of court. Otherwise, no attorney, despite his or her unpopularity, can be disciplined or disbarred under Judiciary Law § 90.
Since a complaint from members of the New York Legislature is a political question, I prepared a calendar, “Say to No to Cuomo” to continue to November 4, 2014. The events on this calendar will not only address the issue of legal representation generally and “judicial bullying,” in particular, but also the issues of Eric Garner, John White, Ramsey Orta, Chrissie Ortiz, Tawana Brawley and a class action involving all historically despised and down-trodden persons.
Gov. Mario Cuomo and his son, Andrew, started the practice of “judicial bullying” in 1990. See Tawana Brawley and “Central Park 7.” It has had a “chilling effect” on all Black attorneys and legal activism. Since May 21, 1990, no Black attorney has initiated litigation challenging white supremacy in New York except for “hush money.”
As a political party, the Freedom Party also needs legal representation. Similarly, United African Movement needs to retain an attorney to represent Tawana Brawley in New York and in Virginia. The Black community and the Freedom Party need a fully-stocked law library to navigate through legal issues and to decipher and arrest “unjust laws” like the “Stand Your Ground” law.
In the past, I have represented an untold number of unpopular defendants and causes pro bono. Otherwise, there would have never been a movement for justice in New York. I was also the sole founder of the Freedom Party and a founder of Freedom Retreat for Boys and Girls with a connection to the “Central Park 7.”
I had also successfully represented the late Mayor Chokwe Lumumba, pro bono and as an attorney, in his pro hac vice application to New York to represent suspected members of the Black Liberation Army in addition to the pro bono representation of Rev. Al Sharpton in a 67-count indictment in Manhattan.
I would find it difficult to believe that any freedom-loving person would reject my effort to resume the practice of law on a pro bono basis or to donate to any effort to continue a legal effort to represent the despised and the downtrodden in the finest tradition of American jurisprudence and consistent with the speech made by Chief Justice Jonathan Lippman to the graduating law class at Pace Law School.
For more than two decades, several thousand persons have received my invaluable, writings on law and military science, free of any cost, even though the fixed costs to publish them including research, writing, editing and publishing have exceeded over Twenty-five Hundred Dollars monthly. There is also now a need to upgrade equipment, legal literature and software.
