Standing For A Just Right

We’ve been down this road before and the majority of Americans have questioned our cause. We’ve seen and suffered injustices before and Americans have told us to wait for the changes. We’ve been told to wait far too long for the injustices to disappear. Yet, wrong is truly forever wrong and right deemed wrong is still forever right. I stand with right with all my damn might.

Now is the time. Waiting is no longer an option

We’re currently in the midst of the most powerful force of change in the world, people power. It the force of this people powered atomic systemic change that creates the atmosphere of agitation that leads to momentous community achievement. The time was ripe for an agitated people to motivate not only a significant populace of this nation but the world to demand that America finally live up to the creed of its creation, that all men, women, and children are truly equal no matter their race, creed, or color. For far too long the boot and now knee of injustice has stifled the dreams and possibilities of an entire race in a nation supposedly built on the premise that all men are created equal. All it took was 8 tragic minutes of a video to loosen the reins and unleash the force that generated this magnificent showing of people power. Now that the people are aroused we mustn’t allow this momentum for change to be mitigated before actual real change is created. George Floyd, and all the other invisible black George Floyd’s are dependent on people power to ensure that their murders were not in vain. Whether murdered by criminal agents of law enforcement or by circumstances that created communities of hopelessness. Each and every murder is unjust and the atmosphere that created the circumstances of despair must change now. We can no longer wait for a better time. The time for change is now. If our current leadership is saying wait. It is imperative to build human capacity in changing the leadership. It is no longer a case of party politics in our communities. The time has finally arrived for race politics. For those in the streets it is imperative for us to educate not only ourselves but each and every member of our people’s power coalition on the most pressing issues that will brighten the hopes and aspirations of each and every child in the black communities across this nation. I float a historical saying by the great Adam Clayton Powell this evening to stress the point of change. We must reach beyond the burning embers of forced oppression that lead us to the streets. Now we must demand change and understand historically as well as futuristically the changes we demand. In addition, we must become more independent in our own actions to ensure that we build our own communities to be prepared to benefit from change within our communities.

Now is the time. Waiting is no longer an option

Racism No Recourse Just Accept It

I was a victim of a serious case of judicial racism in 2012 in Maryland. The racism wasn’t covert it was overt and the racism affected my ability to maintain my wealth and my ability to secure financial protection for my family. I was the victim and the perpetrator was the Maryland State appointed Worker’s Compensation Judge. The outrageousness of the direct racist statement him made was that I had or have no recourse to get any type of settlement or judicial adjudication from the statement that this commissioner made. Also, the commissioner who made the racist statement was also the individual who made the determination about my level of disability as a result of a work related accident.

First, the accident on November 27, 2011 while I was on my way to a preset appointment I was involved in an a accident. While driving to work a truck tire came from an open door on a cargo truck. The truck tire collided with my company vehicle while I was traveling about 45 miles per hour. The collision caused extensive damage to the company vehicle, two broken axles front and back. The tire also aggravated my back injury and caused additional nerve damage to my lower extremities. I am now numb from my groin area to my calf’s both left and right legs. I can no longer sit or stand for extended periods of time without experiencing a great deal of pain. Due to my age this nerve damage will not improve.

Well, on the date of my initial hearing in La Plata, Maryland this Worker’s Compensation Judge had me the only black person whose hearing was scheduled that day wait until the very last case. This commissioner spoke graciously to every white injured client asking about how their spend their days while they were injured. My attorney was optimistic about how he interacted with these clients before my case came up. However, when my this white man changed his demeanor completely. He became an advocate for the corporation. When I was on the stand this white commissioner said that I was looking for a tire to run into, those were his exact words. He said that I was no longer interested in working. Now, understand I was earning 6 figures a year and had been awarded numerous sales awards for outstanding performance and I have been featured in the company’s annual report as well. But to this white commissioner I was a Blackman seeking to get over and avoid work. My lawyer at the time with over 30 plus years of experience said he had never ever heard a commissioner make such an insidious, racist statement before. My pain management doctor had given me 100% disability as a result of the accident. This commissioner said I basically had no disability. My job had forced me into a retirement position I wasn’t seeking but I no longer could do the work that the job demanded.

This commissioner is protected from legal action. He basically had the right to say anything and make judgments because of that protection. I feel he was jealous that I earned 2/3 times his salary. How could this Blackman be in that position? He was looking to hurt me personally and he did it by denying me justice in the courtroom. Because, he denied my claim I had to go back and forth to hearing after hearing but that initial denial is hard to overcome. I should have been guaranteed compensation income because it isn’t his money. Yet, he forced me to spend my retirement monies earlier than I anticipated. Why? Because of the color of my skin. He stole my wealth. Why? Because the color of my skin. He forced me to make difficult decisions due to his racism. Why? Because of the color of my skin. I cannot seek retribution or satisfaction for his racism. Why? Because of the color of “his” skin.

BOYCOTT FOR JUSTICE

The Next Stop Is What Medgar Evers Started In Jackson, Mississippi and Martin Luther King Jr Proposed In 1968, A Boycott For Economic Justice. The Only To Truly Affect Change In This Capitalistic Nation Is To Withhold Your Dollars And Eat Away At The Major Corporations That Have Allowed These Injustices To Continue Financial Bottomline. We Can Change These Social Dynamics But Not By Flooding Our Resources Into These Institutions But By Withdrawing Those Resources. Once That Truly Occurs Change Will Be On The Horizons.
