How to Lynch A Black Man…Let Me Count The Ways


bill-Cosbyimages Men and women cheat in relationships that is reality. My opinion in this present day mass-media driven “High Tech Lynching” of Bill Cosby is not the first time a high-profile / star status Black American was falsely accused by mass-media reporting crumbs placed by conspirators / hidden hands to attack, defame, and destroy an individual reputation and life works.

Let me count the ways. Frederick Jermaine Carter

During the Jim Crow Era of American races history. American justice turn its back on estimated 6000 Black men and boys lynched by White mobs. The White mobs justified their weekly devilish deeds on an average of two (2) lynchings a week, over a period 100 years. Many of these lynchings publicized and advertised, before they occurred, in local newspapers county-by-county in America Racist society.

Of course that was then and this is now where the 20th and 21st centuries American Black men of renowned fame and status become targets of destruction. Utilizing mass-media reporting false allegations. Many of these media driven devilish campaigns end in Black men names defamed, financial resources depleted, fighting false charges in courts of law, and professional careers destroyed. Resulting in time spent in prisons and more importantly their histories of good works fighting the good fight altered in the eyes of their admirers. These results of spreading mass lies and false allegations define the new age lynching called “High-Tech Lynching.”

Let’s continue counting modern day lynching of Black man in the American society…A picture is said to be worth a thousand words. Take a look at the photos below. What do they suggest about the many ways to lynch a Black man?

black_men_in_america_0willie-lynch-pic1

Just to mention a few Black men by name who suffer(ed) from Lynchings.

Marcus Garvey, was charge with trump up charges by the FBI then later deported out of America.

Martin Luther King was falsely accused.

W.E.B. Dubois was falsely accused of being a communist then forced to move and later die in Ghana.

Minister Louis Farrakhan lives today under false charges of being anti-Semitic.

Fred Hamilton of Chicago killed by Chicago Police, in a police raid under the guise of false allegations.

Huey P. Newton was set-up by false charges then sent to prison.

O.J. Simpson in my opinion, was lure to the murder scene by “hidden hands,” charged with the murders then proved his innocence in a court of law, but his reputation is ruin in the eyes of the society and his many previous admires.

Michael Jackson fought against false allegations and criminal charges which one accuser later recanted and stated his family and attorney’s co-hearse him. You all should know how that tragedy viewed by the eyes of the greater society.

President Bill Clinton was set-up through an act of consensual sex.

Presidents Barrack Obama falsely accused of every sin under the Sun.

Stevie Wonder career came under attack and almost destroy because he took a stance against South Africa Apartheid regime uniting other major entertainers not to play “Sun City”

Dick Gregory entertainment career destroy. Mr. Gregory used his fame, and fortune as a platform to advocate for American civil and human rights for Black Americans.

Even the well-beloved Jesus Christ, loved and worship by billions of people of all races today was falsely accused made to appear guilty of false charges. You all know how that ended for JC.

I’m sure many of you reading can add to this partial list of Black men falsely accused of perpetrating crimes and dastardly deeds on unsuspecting others. The charges do not fit their known public profiles which greatly differs with their professional careers especially when these people use their honorable statuses in the society and community as a platform to fight for, or speak on behalf of the poor and disenfranchised members of the American society.

Am I stretching my argument with examples of well-known Black men and others who worked and advocated for common causes to uplift humanity, group or otherwise, and correct injustices in our society to re-balance the scale of justice and equality statuses between the Elite and Common People?

I think not…

WHAT’S WRONG WITH BLACK UNITY? THE ANSWER IS FOUND IN THE MISSING “64”

Why we get together?


20140531_193616 20140531_193410 20140531_193343 20140531_193932How much of what ails us today as a society could be remedied by some old fashioned love and togetherness? The kind we share at the “get-together.”

Its a beautiful Spring day, Im sitting out on the front porch watching life on Center St. Milwaukee unfold; with some family members when one of my nieces says, ” Lets get together for some of Yo Mama-in-law’s to-die-for Salmon Croquettes?” “Cool,” I said. “Let me holler at her and make sure she’s up to it.” Well about a week passes and then I text and inbox everybody that next Sunday we were going to have a Salmon Croquette Bruch at my house around 11 a.m. and Mama going to do the cooking, but we have to buy erthing, you know, pot-luck style. Well, that Sunday all the family shows up. Salmon croquettes, bacon, eggs,sausage, grits, rice, onions and potatoes, and you know we had biscuits and Alaga syrup. If you under thirty, you don’t know nothing about Alaga. We ate, drank and commensurated like we do. When the smoke cleared, Salmon juice was all on the wall, in the flower pots everywhere. Im Just kidding, but you get my point, we ate our backs out. All while we were catching up, sharing stories and reminiscing folks kept asking, “what we getting together for?” The answer kept coming back “just because we love each other.” So After we ate and began to recover from the food-coma that Black folks go into when they eat good food. Folks made them some plates to go, I led in the reading of the African Pledge, My sister, Minister Michele, whose not a real minister, we just call her that because she prays and ministers everywhere she goes, led us in a beautiful prayer and my Mama-in-law chided us to stay free and be self-determining. The folks who were still at the house, on couches, in chairs in all positions and degrees of half sleep, began to reflect on the day. Everyone said they had a ball and that statement we always make “WE HAVE TO DO THIS MORE OFTEN”
The point is, this writer thinks, the family is the solution to a lot of the problems of the world today. Next time you chilling with family and friends think about and be grateful for each other and remember the only reason we need for coming together is the fact that if we don’t come together we will perish separately. Peace.

America’s Need For A Black Political Party In The 21st Century…January 1, 2001 to December 31, 2100


If I may offer some clarity about Black Americans today supporting the Democratic platform. It is true Black Americans once supported the Republican Party. The two political parties began to flip-flop membership in 1964. Our freed forefathers and mothers who remained (99%) in America naturally joined the Republican Party after the Emancipation Proclamation because of the so-call American Emancipator, Abe Lincoln was a Republican.

The Democratic Party for the most part was Southern / Confederate ideology base. Up to when Democrat Lyndon Johnson signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Voting Blacks jump the ship of the Republican party to the Democratic Party during this period in American politics. Likewise with Whites leaving their Democratic Party joining the Republican. A Democrat today is not a Democrat 150 years ago.

I contend it would have been better for all Emancipated slaves be repatriated back to our homelands in Africa. Sadly, that is the apex of the dilemma Black Americans will always face being descendants of freed slaves, “here by choice” dealing with knowingly or unknowingly. And if anyone researched fully what Abe Lincoln fully desired for x slaves one would realize it included full repatriation of our freed forefathers and mothers.

President Lincoln full  emancipation plan was not the desires of the US Congress, backed by the Elite’s which many members retained new and improved Confederate ideologies. Regarding using Black men and women perpetually as newly adopted lower class citizens, to continue building Southern States and Industrial Northern States.

 

Thereby, paying low wage earnings for “Black Servitude” to benefit White America.Black Americans have yet to realize American politricks two-party system..

When we do, if we do, we will begin the task to create a Black Political Party that represents real group thinking for the advancement of Black Americans in all of America’s social institutions.

The after effects of electing America’s first Black President has created a vacuüm in the American society. Tail Spinning American politics between its divided lines not seen in 150 years.

The true problem with 21st Century Black Americans is we are divided as a group / race within our group. We are socially mechanized under the controlled majority white group / race here in America. So much so to our own demise we are unable to seize this shifting moment in American politics and its society looking for “real change.” Yet the society over-all does not have the will to correct its inherited race problems from the 19th and 20th Centuries.

Black Americans; For the sake of our future posterity here in the American society must desist at once all our group divisions. Come together regardless of all White American social ideologies (New and Old) we have learned and adapted. Use those ideologies to create and advance the new structure “Change” stalled here in the infancy of the 21st Century.

We must break the alliance with all past social experiments that have failed the past 60 years to make sure for our posterity,  all American citizens, and people of the World an end to the brutal past centuries still plaguing humanity today.

BLACK MAN AND WOMAN WAKE UP!
