Sadly Its True The Good Die Young – The Sudden Leaving of The Great Taki Raton


I was very saddened to learn today that my friend Taki Raton – Black Milwaukee’s greatest champion of independent Black education and curriculum geared specifically for Black / African Americans youth and young adults transition this life to the afterlife in the realist of terms.

It is said and believed by many of humanity that the human spirit dies with the flesh after that “last dance,” called death. But nature and its ecological systems, including the stars in known solar systems in the universe teaches humanity that energy never ends, but it only transforms into something else. Sometimes seen but mostly unseen when concerning human beliefs about death.

Memories of those that love Taki Raton will never forget him. He lives on in our minds. Those that worked side by side with Taki Raton will forever remember him for his dedicated advocacy in uplifting positive events in the Black American Experience and our struggles for our race unity.

His work ethics will live on in the too many to count published news articles, delivered speeches and presentation, hosted cultural seminars and written education curriculums he professionally completed.

Taki Raton if no one said it while you were present with us, I said it now – Job Well Done Brother. A true, humble and loyal Black scholar that you are.

You will always be remembered by Milwaukee’s Black Community – Your spirit will never die Taki Raton.

I humbly submit this writing is incomplete mentioning all the great achievements of Taki Raton mission here in Milwaukee, but please fill free to write in the comment section what you believe deserves mention about the life of Taki Raton…

WHITE SLAVERY? A synopsis of the book “WHITE CARGO,” by Don Jordan and Michael Walsh – 2008

The Forgotten History of Britain’s White Slaves in America – The Irish Slave Trade  by Don Jordan and Michael Walsh – 2008

“…the Irish slave trade began when King James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.

From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well.

During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.

Many people today will avoid calling the Irish slaves what they truly were: Slaves. They’ll come up with terms like “Indentured Servants” to describe what occurred to the Irish. However, in most cases from the 17Th and 18Th centuries, Irish slaves were nothing more than human cattle.

My ancestor was brought to this country and sold into slavery along with his three brothers. They came over in chains along with others Scots aboard the John and Sarah and sold at auction. They were part of the 10,000 Scots who surrendered at the Battle of Worcester England in 1651. Cromwell sold all 10,000 into slavery in the Americas and the Barbados. Many of these Scots were bought by highlanders here and freed. Others ran away to the American frontier, and some even made it back to Scotland. The unlucky ones endured the same treatment as other American slaves. I have two degrees in history as well as other degrees in education. I always tell my students that if they take anything away with them from my class it should be that history lies. All history is politically based.

A Brief History of Black Fraternity here in America…


Under the surface our society vs race, people beliefs and prejudice have not changed. The S.A.E. White male frat members busted singing a song they all knew well is not out of the ordinary here in America. Who’s really surprised? Those falsely propagating America is a Post Racial Society. Take note below…

“Even before the Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation, the status of free blacks came into question in relation to American fraternal organizations. Mirroring the status of blacks in America society, most fraternal organizations simply excluded black members. Prince Hall, a free black clergyman serving a congregation in Cambridge, Mass., was one of 15 black men initiated into Freemasonry on March 6, 1775, in a British Army lodge whose members were stationed in Boston. Hall then formed a Masonic Lodge of black man, subsequently receiving a charter from the Grand Lodge of England when he was unable to obtain one from the Provincial Grand Lodge of Massachusetts. Hall went on to fight in the American Revolution at the Battle of Bunker Hill. Prince Hall Freemasonry proceeded to form its own Grand Lodges and higher degrees and has remained an important part of the American black community.

Similarly, Peter Ogden, a black sailor initiated into Odd Fellowship in England, founded the Grand United Order of Odd Fellows when the American Independent Order of Odd Fellows would not grant a charter because the signers were of African descent. Ogden instead requested a charter through his own lodge in Liverpool, England.

Households of Ruth, a black women’s group based of the Biblical story of Ruth and Naomi, was started in 1856.” http://phoenixmasonry.org/many_fraternal_groups_grew_from_m…

THINKING BLACK IS NOT RACIST THINKING IT IS A MATTER OF SELF PRESERVATION


I respectfully and humbly disagree with set up liberal thought and political direction concerning the Black and White races. Though I agree with many original Black thought in human ideology premises and theories of how to unify the Black masses on our planet. Too many Black people wherever they resided on our planet do not realize nor comprehend the Black Race is in a spiritual (same as energy) war with the White Race. This understanding is crucial in developing unity between the races. Unity will not come into existence until first the Black Race unites together like other races have done solely based in their shared skin complexions, national / land origins.

This ignored race problem is in fact reality with a skewed baseline that creates conflict in the world. Not one person in power holding force in hand really wants to admit skin complexions define and are at the root of opposing sides. As a matter of fact most common White people who hate dark skin people don’t even realize the root of this negative human emotion and expression. The spirit / energy that dwells in human form is unseen by the human eye and other fleshly senses, yet is faintly detected by the difference between positive and negative energy vibrations.

Energy vibrates and this is the means to harness all forms of energy to direct it to serve the human will and offer subsistence to our needs but for negative energy to exists and have purpose it must ride or be connected to a positive source. A simple way to understand this natural innate reaction demonstrated through life and death of the human body. The human body is no more, if the energy it houses, is release by any means, but positive energy is never destroyed or ends, it just is, and always has been reality of force and power in all the universes.

Being that I have come to accept this consistent spiritual war and conflict between the Black and White races, I have no choice but to shout it, write it, and speak it from any mountain top I find. This is my main spiritual duty and purpose in this life to share with you and all of humanity with respect to all available data and information (positive and negative) about the historical and present day relationship between the two races. In spite of this which may seem a new revelation to people it is not.

Humanity conflicting political oppositions and present day human conflicts that exist will redeem itself when it eventually develops the “willpower” to drop its bestiality behaviors it inflicts on each other. Obviously this is not the era or times of peace between Races on our planet.

The Black Race must know, understand and act determined that they are in a spiritual war against the White Race. Our dark skin complexions (non-white) pre-determines what opposing side today you should CLOSE RANKS with, to preserve self and kind to make sure fair treatment and proper distribution / allocations of human makings and land resources, are certain for the future lifetimes of Black children on this planet.

Until the day’s comes into existence when all of humanity eliminates its bestiality behaviors. You may say African I may say Black but reality says the truth of the matter with African / Black Liberation is both are one in the same in the missing link in the web to capture Black unity.

Black America…A Call to Think


The basic meaning of the word religion is “A way of Life or Living.” Connected with religions is a God or Godhead, in contexts of physical or mental, that followers and believer’s profess their submission and authority over their lives and actions e.g., Islam God Allah is mental unseeing with the human eye, Christianity God has heads depicted in painted imagery of a man. Again, looking at the basic meaning of a word. God simply means “force and power.” Head means the upper part of the human body separated from the body by the neck.

Keeping the above basic concepts and meanings in mind, if one ever realizes it in their lifetime. One grows into an understanding that institutionalized religions and their dogma has evolved from one source that source is MAN. Man is the maker of religions to help him with understanding, comprehending, and control (positive and negative results) the realities of life.

Much debate and arguments revolve about that one source, which all religions are connected. People are born into the world knowing nothing. Our social environments shape our understanding, learning, and knowledge of the world. Knowledge of things is subjective to environment and the degree of formative information made available through exploration, study of subject matters then given, taught, and explored further then shared to other’s not having and seeking knowledge and understanding into things. This process happens like a ticking clock throughout the history of humanity.

Now in particular, the Black man and woman (majority wise) here in North America today are descendants of x slaves. Those slaves were in physical captivity for a period estimated to be 300 years, or 12 generations having no light (proper knowledge of things) given, or taught to the children of slaves, which those children eventually had, children, obviously did not have knowledge to teach their children for 12 generations, or 300 years.

A Slave life consisted of physical servitude to White society, day in through day out, year after year for Twenty-five years times, four, times three equals three hundred years. The tenth generation of slaves (250 year mark) were introduce to a religion that reinforced the slave master will into the mind of the slaves that accepted this new indoctrination of servitude. That new servitude indoctrination was the religion of the slave master’s called Christianity.

Christianity has proven to be, a perpetual mental conditioning that would constantly trigger submissiveness and fear in the mind and actions of the slave less violent consequences from the master, even when his or her master was out of sight or not present in the immediate presents of the slave.

The religious indoctrination called Christianity proves to be everlasting as long as the slave and the children of slaves worshiped the Christian Godhead called Jesus Christ. This explains why today even well-educated “Free Black men and women backed by Constitutional Civil Rights, here in America and around the world submit to White people authority over them in the greater society. Black Americans today practicing and believing in the Christian Godhead called Jesus Christ, are similar in mind and actions of the Black slaves of old.

Black America it is just that simple. Practicing religions that teach “force and power” resides somewhere outside of your body, and the only way to connect to that power and force is through submission while you live and devote your will to that particular religious dogma. Aggressively these religions teach followers and believers they will meet the Godhead after death and then he will reward your earthly servitude to men and humanity

These religions bound humanity to follow the Godheads; Prophets, Messengers, Pope, Priest, Imams, Ministers, Preachers, Kings and Queens, Rulers of Nations and Masters / Authority positions over men, women and children during earthly life to mediate over the same forces and powers all men and women born into this reality called life are endowed with. Once coming into the knowledge of the natural order of known creations that cannot escape rationality, which governs the small things in creation it, would be natural for a slave to reject his slave master Godhead given to him to keep him bounded and controlled perpetually during his life to the slave master ways of life. The Black man and woman have not achieved this realization even after 150 years have passed since their fathers and mothers was emancipated here in America.

All humans inherit intelligence based on the developmental phases and abilities humans are capable of achieving. Each can comprehend mental or physical concepts in every particular contextual science that governs human development when given the best education man has developed. The free Black man and woman have proven this here in America.

As long as the natural human processes of learning endowed in all humans, is not developed properly within any given society, humanity will continue its negative systemic process of enslaving (mental and physical) groups and individuals.

Forces and power naturally groups or combine in promoting and seeking to control (degreed amounts) of others outside their group, to enhance their group systemic ideologies e.g. religion for the sake of world domination. Simply, yet denied and covered, to enhance race, group or  individual power and force to exist in comfort and enjoy the finer things life has to offer at the exclusion of competing races, nations, and or groups melted within a society.

The Black race refuses to accept this reality of group / race competition for the sake of preservation. Even in the face of living in continue social and economic oppression under the banner of God Loves America or America the Land of The Free, which neither is a reality for Black Americans because Black Americans have not harness the power nor force that comes when groups or races unite under these banners. In essences when a group with lessor power and force unite with a group with greater force and power in the American society the lessor group becomes servants or remain servants to the greater group. Only gaining limited equality in the share of limited resources the society generates.

Black Americans love America but America does not love them. In return for their ancestor’s 300-year enslavement in a land, that was not theirs. America emancipated its tortured and captive slaves to go free without physical chains into the American society unprotected from its former slave master seeking to re-enslave or hunt down to kill newly freed Black men, women, and children.

Instead of packing up and leaving America shores returning to their rightful homeland. The majority of Black Americans infected with Christianity and its Godhead, Jesus Christ remained here in America trick into believing they had a right to the lion’s share of the White Christians controlled society.

In spite of the 150 years following the Emancipation of x Black slaves with untallied numerous murders, public lynching’s, and second class citizenship status in the society, The descendants of x slaves (Black Americans) remain growing into the tens of millions of oppressed citizens of the society. In America social cultural group terms, Black Americans are suffering more or higher rates disproportionately from the host of social-cultural ills that plaque 21st century civilizations.

While other races and ethnic groups practice and consider themselves Christians and Muslim followers and believers live in the American society they manage remaining united based on perspective races and cultures of their former homelands even though they practice Americanism. This race / ethnic unity factor generates cooperative economics that benefit their race and group first then the broader society second. This is a natural social-environmental phenomenon that occurs in the American society except with Black Americans.

I conclude in spite of Black Americans practicing and upholding American social norms (Religions in particular) that define law-abiding citizens and American patriotism, Black Americans will receive the worst of the social ills 21st century heaps on its disenfranchised second-class citizens that they are.

Until they unite with self and kind first then determine its future generations of Black Americans status. By utilizing their individual force and power combined / unified into one purpose. Like a Godhead demanding obedience and sacrifice commitments from its followers, then and only then, Black Americans will earn respect and honor they rightfully deserve from America.

WOW!….Only in America…Where Politics Breeds Arrogant Boldness!


Only in America can a convicted felon run for public office. Talk about putting a “Fox in charge of the Hen house.”  Then again, the prison Gary George served his time, Federal Prison Camp, Duluth Minn, is more like a long-term stay at a golf resort. Also, Gary George once released broke the stereotype that “X Felons are consider “unemployable” in Americas workforce. Gary George intellectually is far from being what is consider “dummies.” .Gary George_safe_image http://www.wisn.com/politics/gary-george-explains-why-hes-running-for-congress/26332574#!UV7Z2.

Gary made a bold attempt in 2008 to have his law license reinstated, but a lower Court and upper Supreme Court determined he had yet, learned the lesson, “Foxes should not get caught in the Hen house.” But in 2010 the Courts determined Gary learned the lesson, and reinstated his Wisconsin Bar Law license, see link   http://host.madison.com/news/local/crime_and_courts/state-court-reinstates-gary-george-s-law-license/article_41a2a7e0-cc9f-11df-bc34-001cc4c03286.html

America after all said and done, does forgive convicted felons. At least if convicted of what is socially considered a “white-collar crime.” Notice Gary George above photo…He is wearing a white-collar.

The question for voting residents in Wisconsin Congressional 4th District is; If elected will Gary George do better than the incumbent Congresswoman Gwen Moore representation these past 9 years? Especially in light of Huffington Post, recent “dark exposure” reporting about Congresswoman Moore covert corporate stooges role for Wall Street…see link.. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/05/27/congressional-black-caucus-wall-street_n_5399290.html?fb_action_ids=780827855261345&fb_action_types=og.shares&fb_source=aggregation&fb_aggregation_id=288381481237582.

My God she’s a Democrat…I know!, Go figure! Have you read a public response from Congresswoman Moore. Maybe she hoping it will just go away then she can continue her corporate stooges role by operating under the wire of scrutiny which is highly practiced in Milwaukee, WI, by Elected Democratic Leadership. Especially, down town in City Hall, (Mayor Tom Barrett and other Elected City Council members present and former elect’s.

I stated Gary George is far from being not smart. More than likely he sees (Congresswoman) Gwen Moore as a lame incumbent duck  for this fall hunting season rather Congressional Election Season. We all take calculated risk unknowingly and knowingly in our lives. But American Politics is control by the “Good Old Boy’s Club,” and it has a long history of secrets hidden behind closed doors where political deals and compromises are create.

Unknowingly many Professional Black politicians since the 1970s have had limited membership privileges. Black Politian’s knowingly aware of their limited privileges in the “club,” are what referred to as a “Sell Out” by America’s Black politically aware masses. Up until America Elected its first Black President into the Oval Office in 2008 (Hurrah) Black Politian’s knew this seat was off-limits and those Black Politian’s that indulged in running for the seat in the Oval Office, seem to have been symbolic campaigns to say the least.

Unseen political back door deals with Corporate America often come under the public eye of scrutiny because in many of these deals lines between legal and illegal remain obscure until State Courts, DOJ or a Congressional Committee investigations is launch proceeding reports, such as, the Huffington Post “detailed” report about Congresswoman Moore apparent conflicting political relationships with Wall Street Banks and Corporates… linked to this report by, Tony Muhammad.
