Josiah Henson

Today’s African American History
No, Those Negroes Who Spoke At RNC Were Not Uncle Tom’s They Couldn't Rise Up To His Excellence And Desire For The Uplift Of The African American Communities
The Road To Dawn - Josiah Henson

Please don't misuse the term, Uncle Tom it's been misunderstood for far too long. Josiah Henson was the original Uncle Tom.

“We learned that the prime minister of Great Britain had thrown a surprise banquet in his honor, and that Earl Grey had offered him a job. The archbishop of Canterbury had wept after hearing his story. This man had been feted by queens and presidents, and he had won a medal at the first World’s Fair in London. He had rescued 118 slaves, including his own brother, and helped build a five-hundred-person freeman settlement, Dawn, that was known as one of the final stops on the Underground Railroad. How had I never heard of Josiah Henson?”

I wish I could rise up to the level of Josiah Henson, our nation's true Uncle Tom.

August 25, 1925, Our Black History Need Never Be A Black Mystery, The Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Po

What would the black community civil, economic, social, educational conditions be had it not been for the establishment of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters on this date 92 years ago? Out of that development A. Phillip Randolph moved to the position of President of the newly founded labor organization. Today I salute both the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters as well as Mr. Randolph for his and their remarkable contributions in this historic mini lesson. I verse three of Mr. Randolph's speeches from 1921, 1941, and 1963 and give thanks to the All Mighty for the presence of these heroic​ men who stood tall against overwhelming odds to demand to be treated, respected, and paid as men. When they stood up our black ancestors began to stand with them.

Black Souls To The Polls

The Democratic Party wants African Americans to be their “mules” but refuse to us any meaningful political acreage. Historically without the African American loyal and unbinding support there would not have been a Kennedy, Carter, Clinton, or Obama Presidency. Without that African American voting support the Republicans would’ve controlled the Executive Branch of the United States Government for the past 70 years. Because without Kennedy winning in 1960, Lyndon Johnson who was the only Democratic President to win the majority of the white popular vote in any general election that being 1964 wouldn’t have been Vice President. So, you want African Americans to be the pack mules and carry the message of the party yet you cannot even fill our wagons with what is necessary to compete on an equal basis with the people who have oppressed us for over 400 years. Then how do expect continued blind loyalty.

So, don’t come every four years to the African American communities with promises that you never intent to keep. The central and primary aim and goal of African American communities is satisfying our demand for reparations. Without our support on November 3, 2020, you lose and you lose to someone who is the least qualified individual to ever serve as President in the history of this nation. I mean the absolute worse person and he will be elected again by white Americans. That should tell you quite a deal about the current state of this nation. So, if you want to drive black souls to the polls, Barack won’t do it, Michelle won’t do it, Hillary and Bill won’t do it, and certainly Joe and Kamala won’t do it. The only sure way to drive the American Descendants of Slavery, true African Americans, those whose lineage goes back to those Mississippi Delta cotton fields, those Louisiana sugar cane fields, those hanging bridges and burning bodies of Jim Crow, the stolen wealth government edicts against African Americans is to make reparations a priority item in your party platform. Not a one word mention but a major platform priority. Otherwise, I and others like myself will vote on November 3rd because voting is a privilege not to be ignored. But we will vote for every candidate except for anyone at the top of the Democratic ticket. So if you want black souls coming to the polls stop being so damn cold, African American reparations with allow a Biden/Harris winning story to be told.

“Why Do Police and Fire Vehicles Have Lights And Sirens?”

The Reason Why Police And Fire Vehicles Have Lights and Sirens isn’t merely to Alert You to Danger, Rather it’s for You to Get Out Of the Way So They Can Get To the Danger. Not Many People are going to Run Into a Burning House; and Not Very Many People are going to Run Toward Gunfire. So Government Gives Police and Fire Personnel Equipment To Warn You To Clear a Path. Police and Fire aren’t the Only Ones that Fight For You.
If it Wasn’t for the Likes of The Honorable Marcus M. Garvey, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcom X. Huey Newton, Bobby Seale, and Countless Whom Fought and Sacrificed so You Could Achieve What You Have, You Wouldn’t be Where You Are. Except those Who Fight For Your Rights, Don’t Have “Lights and Sirens” to indicate you Should Get Out Of the Way, So We Can Get to the Fight.
You Don’t Have to Fight For the Rights Of Our People — Just Stay Out Of the Way Of Those Who Do.
