Friday News in early September 2014

The video is disturbing. This is why we should know about our rights. We have every right to exercise our rights. I am going to research both cases to get a better picture of what happened to both Ty Turner and Jamilah Nasheed. I am glad that both of them are not going into prison. Yes, many black people have been mistreated by the police. Laura Ingraham is a hypocrite, because she supports a network that sponsors divisive rhetoric all of the time. She is part of a network that has people spewing ignorance, bigotry, and hatred. The incidents of Ty Turner and Jamilah Nasheed represent the tensions of the police and local communities. We need solutions to these problems and the solution is not about allowing people to act submissive like a sheeple to the cops. It is important to mention that people have the right to stand up for their rights. People have to be EDUCATED more on their legal and human rights. There must be more recordings of police actions in communities. There must be accountability for any officer doing the wrong thing and there must be policies changed in order for people to address the situation of police misconduct nationwide. We, as a people, should be politically independent (We should never bow before the two parties), but there is nothing wrong with voter registration efforts or people fighting against voter suppression efforts at all. We have the right to express our own self determination and not be swayed by reactionary rhetoric. We, as black people, want to be free. This white racist Douglas Poynter is evil and his conduct is deplorable. He should be prosecuted. His hatred is reflective of the hatred shown by white supremacist groups. He has violated the property of his neighbor. He has threatened another person’s family. So, the mentality of white racists is filled with jealousy (the racists are definitely jealous of black people’s melanin), hate, insecurities, and other evil thinking. That is why it is very important to treat our neighbor as ourselves and to stand up for our people (and for real principles in the world). There must be revolutionary change in society. I am glad that the sacrifice of the labor rights movement was mentioned, because men and women in solidarity fought and some even died so that workers can have benefits that many of us take for granted. Obviously, we should oppose unfair loopholes, and other bad economic policies. Certainly, I am in solidarity with the protesters wanting a living wage. Many of these protesters have been arrested. They want economic justice sincerely.

People who are supporting him or Daniel Holtzclaw in social media are sick. I find that these same sick people are not expressing any massive sympathy, support, or solidarity to the victims at all. What are needed are prayers, support and solidarity with the black women who are the victims of abuse. Once again, this is another example of how some people have no respect for the dignity of black women. The lives of the seven black women have value. They deserve total dignity and respect. In order for us to be free for real, both black men and black women (who have great human value) have to be free. #Black Lives Matter. Yes, these women's testimonies should be taken seriously as many people have mentioned including what Courtney and Chazz has said. Chazz and Courtney are known for showing great information. I respect both of them a lot. It is a total disgrace that some people would want to ignore the testimonies from seven victims of abuse. Black women suffer the two evils of racism and misogyny. So, evil people try to demonize black women, because of jealousies, hatred, and just outright ignorance. Racism and misogyny are twin evils and they are equally repugnant, nefarious, and horrendous. In this generation, we see the handwriting on the wall and we have to continue in standing up for the oppressed and for the rights of all victims. Strong to me is about standing up for real, authentic principles. It is about caring for humanity. It is about defending justice and fighting for justice. Strength is about uplifting people and seeking positive, revolutionary change in the world. It is just commonsense to respect the human dignity of the victims. If someone is doing mistreatment or any abuse against any human being, we should not support that person in any fashion whatsoever. Some people confuse a black woman showing strength with obnoxiousness and undue belligerence. In reality, a black woman showing strength righteously is just about a Sister being real. Realness is defined by just conduct, honesty, and understanding wisdom. There is nothing wrong with you a woman being Strong. There is nothing wrong with a man being Strong either. Men and Women have every right to work together in a positive fashion, so both genders can make solutions a reality. All human beings in general are entitled to fair treatment, dignity, and respect. The more people understand the real lesson of treating their neighbors as themselves, the better off the world will be. Chazz is correct to talk about the double standards in society. We still have racism and great discrimination. People who support or fund wicked people in that fashion have issues period. We should respect and support honorable, real people that are making a difference in the world.

I believe in religious freedom. People have the right to agree or disagree with the Christianity. What is wrong is about how some people use lies and distortion as excuse to disagree with Christianity. I believe in sticking to the facts not unfair hatred or deception. Many haters of spirituality use the Council of Nicea as an excuse to claim that some books like the gospel of the Essenes, etc. were excluded from the Bible. The truth is that none of the Council of Nicea dealt with canon of scripture. It dealt with religious doctrines and other matters. Other regional councils dealt with canon like the Council of Hippo in 393 and the Council of Carthage in 397 A.D. Even the Nativity of Mary dates from ca. 9th to 19th centuries. The history of Joseph the Carpenter wasn’t written until the 6th or 7th centuries. The Gospel of the Essenes (or Essene Gospel of Peace) was a 20th century hoax by Bordeaux Szekely. Many of the people who lie about various religions follow the works of slanderers, some Masons and various mystics who distort information (many of whom are some of the same people who believe in bigoted ideals about people of color ironically enough). Bart D. Ehrman and other scholars (who both either agree with or challenge the Christian faith) have documented the historical existence of Jesus Christ. There have been papyrus fragments of John dating long before 187 A.D. like P52. Josephus’ Testimonium Flavianum describing Jesus was written in the first century. Roman references to Jesus like Tacitus’ Annals date well before 187. Also, the name of Solomon has nothing to do with specific names for the sun (as Manly P. Hall once mentioned). The word Solomon is a later Greek transliteration of the Hebrew original. The word is used in the Bible and would have been used by Hebrew speaker as Shlomoh (שְׁלֹמֹה). The name Shlomoh derives from the same Hebrew root as Shalom and means “peace.”  It has nothing to do with the sun, nor does it in anyway correspond with the Hebrew word for sun. The four consonants spelling Shlomoh (Shin, Lamed, Mem, Hey) cannot give you any form of the menorah. They make up an even number. At the end of the day, we deserve the accurate truth. We deserve to develop our spirits via facts.

It has been 50 years since the rebellion in Rochester, New York. The 1964 rebellions came in the very same month of the passing of the Civil Rights Act. This was during the apex of American liberalism. It occurred for three days from July 24 to July 26, 1964. During the 1960’s, hundreds of rebellions took place in America. Many African Americans and other people migrated into Rochester to escape racism and the bad economic conditions of many areas of the South. They traveled into the industrial cities of the North and the West. Rochester’s African American population tripled in the 1950s, from 7,845 at the beginning of the decade to 23,586 in 1960, and increased further to 32,000 by 1964. The children of the migration generation came up during the great industrial centers of the North in the 1950’s and the 1960’s. Many of them never lived in the South. They were politicized by the Civil Rights Movement spreading in the South (among the poor and middle class black people). African Americans like all people wanted a better life and an end to the social crisis plaguing society. Rochester soon saw the first phases of deindustrialization. Work shortages came, a lack of housing existed, and other tensions came about. Back then, more southern and eastern European immigrations were in the North. The ruling class back then used de facto segregation to confine most working class African Americans to the oldest and poorest neighborhood of the city (including the Joseph Avenue and Corn Hill districts). Many landlords in these areas illegally subdivided buildings into even smaller units in order to profit from the housing shortage, creating dangerous overcrowding and poor living conditions. The area was about 10 square blocks. Many black people suffered low paying employment. Back then, Kodak heavily prevented black workers to have high paying jobs. The rebellion started with an arrest of a 19 year old man at a street party on Joseph Avenue in the northern part of Rochester. A crowd protested the arrest. Rumors were spread about police brutality in the city. The police used German shepherd dogs for backup (these are the same breed that attacked and maul young children civil rights demonstrators in Birmingham, Alabama). Then, the rebellion occurred. Many white and black people were involved in the rebellions. Whites and blacks were arrested. The Governor of NY Nelson Rockefeller called the National Guard. Reformist groups tried to establish change. Political organizer Saul Alinksy wanted reforms like improved public housing, and more white-collar positions for African Americans in the city’s major corporations such as KODAK and Xerox. Many view Alinksy as a revolutionary, but he was a bourgeois activist that wanted more people in corporate America. Some changes occurred. More black people were in the local government of Rochester. The issue is that deindustrialization continued for decades without much revolutionary change for the poor. That represented the decline of American capitalism. There is still high poverty for minority communities in Rochester. The unemployment rate is slightly down now as compared to 2009, but there is a long way to go. There must be a collective solution. So, there must be a radical program to address social inequality, poverty, and jobs in the city.
