February is “Black History Month.” Dr. Carter G. Woodson is the “Father of Black History Month.” His original proposal was for a “Black History Week” near the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. “Black History Week” was expanded to “Black History Month.” April 1950 was a “bad month” for Blacks.
“His Story” trumps “Our Story.” “His Story” is a business. “Our Story” is a “hobby.” “Our Story” is based on “pleasure.” “His Story,” in New York and elsewhere, is based on Fed. Rule Evid. 803 (6). The key personnel in business must include an attorney, an accountant and a corresponding secretary. For Blacks, there must also be a personnel director to “separate grass from weeds.” This is natural law.
Because “Our Story” is a “hobby,” it lacks key personnel and fails to honor Fed. Rule Evid. 803 (6), and is “inherently” a “front” for and a subsidiary of “His Story” and has the relationship of “slavemaster” to “Head-Negro-In-Charge.” Blacks will routinely follow HNICs, like former Mayor David N. Dinkins, to the detriment of Black children. This is a “throwback to slavery.”
I consistently urged Blacks to demand an “attorney general’s opinion” on the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation from President Barack Obama. Blacks are fascinated with “Negro Titleholders.” The definition of an “attorney general’s opinion” can be found in Black’s Law Dictionary 139 (8th ed. 2004).
If President Abraham Lincoln could issue an “executive proclamation,” freeing the enslaved Negroes, Mr. Obama could have issued an “attorney general’s opinion.” This legal tool could have been of great use in slowing down an unsympathetic and hostile President Donald J. Trump. Likewise, very few Blacks attorneys showed up for the “Central Park 7” defendants.
Cong. Charles Rangel was able to defeat Cong. Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., in 1970, with the help of Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau and the Rockefeller family. Rangel was also a “switch-hitter” like Al Sharpton. They both have roots in the Republican Party and are aligned with Donald Trump and Michael Bloomberg.
I was only able to last in Harlem for two years while fighting white supremacy and defending Black children. Cong. Powell, with support from Abyssinian Baptist Church, was able to remain in Congress for twenty-six years. Cong. Rangel was in Congress for forty-six years while passing no “key legislation” and bringing home “no bacon.”
Both Leola and I are over seventy years of age. For me, it has always been about Black children and I have the “scars” and an “empty pocketbook” to prove it. No member of the Freedom Party’s Steering Committee is willing to be vetted, by Blacks, even though it is a requirement for jury duty. Anyone in a chitlin-circuit operation knows to obey whites “or else.” This is the sin qua non of chattel slavery.
Blacks could have Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor William de Blasio by their “privates” and on their “knees.” They are both dancing to the tune of U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara who was re-appointed by President Donald Trump for “a reason.” Between Black children and these public officials, the choice should be clear. Only a slave would elevate these men over their children. The predator is teaching the prey.
You only have to call these men and ask them to e-mail, to you, their “sworn,” reply affidavits to the ex parte affidavit of Alton Maddox in CPW Towers, LLC v. Maddox, Index No. L&T 86146 (Civ. Ct., N.Y. Co. 2014). You are seeking the truth. No Black Parent Should Be Left Behind!
You can achieve the truth only by comparing the ex parte affidavit with their, “sworn” reply affidavit. The future of Black children is at stake. The reply affidavit should be e-mailed to you by or on Monday. Every Black parent should make a call to each of the below-listed public officials.
In honor of “Black History Month,” Blacks must turnout on February 28, 2017 and exceed the achievement of Marcus Garvey who packed Madison Square Garden on August 1, 1920. Today, Blacks have the computer. Mr. Garvey only had the “Morse Code” and the “printing press.” This is like racing a Model-T Ford with a BMW. I will bet on the BMW every time.
No one doubts that I am the best negotiator in the business. I always bargained, for a fair trial, before every trial, for my clients. I “never” engaged in plea bargaining which is “dehumanizing.” If six figure numbers show up on February 28, 2017, in the area of Manhattan Housing Court, there will be an end to judicial racism in the criminal courts, prosecution of children in adult courts, and an end to judicial corruption in civil courts.
For me, it has always been about the children. I agree with Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. “An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Moreover, as Dr. King said:
“The Negro cannot win … if he is willing to sell the future of his children for his personal and immediate comfort and safety.”
On the other hand, whites view “freedom” as an investment. President Thomas Jefferson, a co-founder of the Democratic Party, said: “The cost of freedom is eternal vigilance.” Jefferson was only speaking to white men. Prof. Charles Hamilton Houston said it differently: “Any Black lawyer who is not a social engineer is a social parasite.” This applies to all “Black activists.”
To satisfy the requirements of truth, I must speak in the “first person.” No one was with me in Indiana when I planned, at my own expense, a Freedom Retreat for Boys and Girls. The basic curriculum of the Freedom Retreat for Boys and Girls provided “survival skills” in order to avoid another “Central Park 7.” This summer camp also focused on “swimming skills.” Young Black boys had to be saved, this week, by two white males, in Central Park because they lacked swimming skills.
No one in UAM and the Freedom Party could establish an African-oriented, sleep-away summer camp, in the Catskills. Retirees could end it because of a lack of business acumen. A majority of the females in the Freedom Party refused to volunteer their services in the summer retreat for children. It is in their resumes. Before Hurricane Sandy, the summer camp was, already on its last leg.
I receive no Social Security benefits, have no credit card, no salary, no pension, no expense account, no medical and dental insurance, no death benefits and no money for the volunteer, corresponding secretary who makes these missiles possible. She has to “pay to play.” There were no racial credits from the Black community.
I had to spend every dime I could “rake and scrape” on Black children. Members of the Black community, with few exceptions, have demonstrated that Black children are not worth amassing a war chest to insure their future well being. Leola and I can spend the rest of our lives in a “homeless shelter.” Our Black children should not be there with us. Retirees can head for the “Sunny South.”
Children who attended Freedom Retreat for Boys and Girls did not have to wait for “Hidden Figures” to ascertain the real reason for the Civil War. They studied the U.S. Constitution on a basketball court and Dred Scott in Moot Court. They also studied: “Necessity is the mother of invention.” Nonetheless, Black parents opt for “Mayoral Control” in New York City.
“A Race –without children– Is A Race Without A Future.” “Unprotected Sex Leads To Unprotected Children.”
