1992bandb,

True; point well taken. Just as well, those who cry for having no boots should pray never to come to appreciating personally and experientially what it feels like to have no legs.

I am disgusted with the FIRST 12 Minutes .. and if you like ? I can break down each statement with a transcript and I will address EACH STATEMENT.

1.) Personally ? I know Obama is going A GREAT JOB -  stop hating.  PERIOD

2.) Obama gave every black in America THE GOLDEN KEY TO RISE UP - TRANSPARENT GOVERNMENT

3.) All this time ? Blacks should have had an ALL BLACK NEWS 24 HOUR SHOW -  to counter fox news.

4.) I have VIDEO FOOTAGE of law enforcement and elected officials BREAKING THE LAW.  - and ? People like you guys in this audio clip - totally ignore PROOF that can kick crooks out of office and lock up others.

 

I will say this -  I'm not going to sit on my butt -  and wait for Obama to do anything for me.

you guys have THE MONEY and THE POWER and REFUSE TO USE IT -  Just like this web site.
LOOK AT IT !!!!!!! -  It's TOW UP from the FLOW UP !!!!!!! I'd be willing to help you guys FOR FREE.

It's what I do -  24/7

 

IF YOU WANT CHANGE ? You will have to step up to my level - THE B+ or B- Movement.
Either B POSITIVE IN AND AROUND MY LIFE ?

or MINUS your hell, evil and wickedness away from Me and MINES. - PERIOD!

 

I EXPOSE evil 24/7 - I FEAR NO evil - and I get results - things change - even in Montgomery, AL.
Allow me to be on your show - or come to mines. - or talk with me ONE ON ONE.

I WILL SHOW YOU THE LIGHT.  -  I could only take 12 minutes ... because you guys are not seeing THE WHOLE TRUTH - I hope there is no LOVE LOSS ... but if you choose to BAN ME or KICK ME OFF THIS SITE ? Hey ... I still LOVE YOU and there is NOTHING you can do about that.

 

LASTLY - I've been fighting in the trenches for 12+ years.
Police harassment after I stood up for myself.

NO BLACK ORGANIZATION would life a finger to help me.... I got off my BUTT and did it with JESUS.

PERIOD ... blacks are so lazy to wait for Obama to do what we need to do ourselves.

 

To me ? a ""N""  does everything that the white racist wants them to do.
I INFILTRATED THE BIG HOUSE - No one wants part of it - they would rather keep it like it is and hold their heads down - and not make waves - nothing but a bunch of cowards ...

 

WARNING .... before you reply to me ? You better do your research on me. GOOGLE MY NAME.
I deal in FACTS, PROOFS, TRUTHS and Personal Experiences  -

I don't do opinions - opinions are for the weak who don't know or refuse THE WHOLE TRUTH.
I LOVE YOU and there's nothing you can do about that.

If ? i have lied ? or am wrong about something ? Show me the error of my ways.

DO NOT USE character assassination, deception, or lies to prove me wrong or change my stance on THE TRUTH - OR ? I will show you a NEW WAY TO MEET JESUS.

Brother ? Contact me - I deal with people who are not afraid of going in THE TRENCHES.
You have to find people who are not afraid of getting their elbows dirty, their knees dirty and people who have a REAL BACK BONE, GUTS and NUTTS.

 

I do a radio show NIGHTLY with convicted people - INNOCENT and GUILTY.
I have all due respect for the 3 males in this audio clip - but I am disgusted in what I heard the first 12 minutes ...... NEVER SAY - no one cares. You just have to look in the right place.

 

Folks are afraid and scared of jim crow, the good ole boys and willy lynch.
I ? AM NOT - and the people I HANG AROUND - ARE NOT -  WE MAKE THINGS HAPPEN FOR THE GOOD.

Dear Bro. Murree,

Mine is not a pity party, but to rejoice with you, give you words of encouragement and share with you some resource I hope will help. Though, I have no personal experience of the type you have described, I have seen others go through theirs at close quarters to understand some aspects of it from a third-party perspective. I may not have the benefit of examining the full case beyond what you have stated, but it does not take anything away from your message. There is still injustice in this society. Big time. 

Now, I do not know if you have read the several, intelligent and deep posts from Jennifer Warren in this forum. She is one of the deepest writers in this forum. and, she has a load of valuable experience to share, some of which experiences have come at a steep personal price. If you have not read her posts, please try and read some of them. If you have read them, then great. My question to you is this; In your pain arising from your unjustified treatment ostensibly because you are black, are you able or not to connect with Jennifer despite the fact that she is NOT Black? If yes, why? If no, why?

Hopefully, understanding these issues better and deeper will help us all situate our thinking and action in more functionally adaptive ways.

Here is the most important part of my post; Stay close to God. Seek His face earnestly. You will hear His Voice. You cannot mistake the Voice for any other! Place no salvation in man. Look to the Cross. Your answer will come from there. I am telling you from personal experience. I am far from Angel Gabriel, but spiritually, I know what I know. I value what I know a million times more than all my academic/professional credentials.  

Read the experience of this man who was unjustly imprisoned for 27 years in the State of Texas; yes, 27 years! Now, he is a free man. You will see the place of God in the scheme of things. But you are not likely to know what it is to hear from God until you have heard from God. God bless you. The link to Chatman's account is http://www.dallasobserver.com/2008-02-07/news/life-after-dna-exoner...

There are credible agencies that currently look into issues such as yours and Jennifer's. ACLU is one.  The Innocent Project of Texas is another. Look up both on the Internet and get their contact numbers. If I get them first, I shall post them for your attention. Again, God bless you, my brother.

I was unjustly convicted in California for a fistfight in which I only defended myself. A Los Angeles Sheriff led with fabrications, the D.A. suppressed evidence beneficial to my exoneration, and the Judge covered for them all. I was a black man being lynched in a courthouse in Beverly Hills. Then I was sent to the Prison Industrial Complex for 4 years to be enslaved. FOR ONLY A FISTFIGHT!. 2003-2007. Racism in my case was so glaring its ridiculous! I wasn't a criminal, but was deemed one due to the color of my skin. Their insatiable desire to fill those cells at all cost needs to be addressed. WAKE UP!!!! I THANK YOU BROTHERS FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART FOR BRINGING ATTENTION TO THIS ISSUE!!!!!!!!!!!! No one else cares that slavery still is in existence in America.

You can download the podcasts from iTunes.  I was a holdout and didn't want to use iTunes until I realized I could get this, Michael Eric Dyson's show, and Democracy Now! free through the podcast feature.

It's getting to the point where I think people on this site who just automatically type words such as "Obama is doing a great job; stop hating" are in fact trolls. Self-governance can't work if we don't fiercely critique the executive branch, much less the legislators. Get that.

um ... calling me names - is just a sign ignorance, evil and wickedness.

If you want to discuss the terrible job that Obama is doing? GREAT

Let's do that - 

 

If you want to discuss haters like yourself ? Let's do that.

anything i say here ? I can say it on LIVE TV, LIVE RADIO and to anyone's face .....

Just for the record - me using TRANSPARENT GOVERNMENT - has landed several elected officials on VIDEO and AUDIO - committing crimes ....

 

but haters like yourself and some in the audio clip - are to scared to deal with that.
Seems that they, and along with yourself - are THE TRUE TROLLS.

@ Daniel,

 

Trust me, Daniel. I get that! In response to your truth, one of my good brothers would pull out our popular and supportive, cultural artifact "true dat, true dat! ... :)

Not to worry, words do not bite; especially weakling-slangs like trolls. And, even if they do, it is a small price to pay for feeding the mental and physiological hunger that most Americans endure daily (minus the comfortable 400 x 85% plus their cronies).

I am mad as well, as we all should be I am glad you all picked a subject that do not make you look like Tea Party members.  I believe all black men "women" should do their part from you professors, deans and graduate students, I can be help feel that you all Tavis & West think you are above the trinches, in many ways you are accomplished, so you discuss President yes President Obama you hertic conversation are sadly demeaning and confusing to our youth. Two Strong and articulate black men, can always have a conversation, about events and persons they can not identify with, our young men, Hip Hop youth in some way articulate as well but your conversation is above their head, so you will not go there, there are many in our communities in the trenches, for our youth and families, the crimes and criminalization of Black people is staggering, we need you positive help not how mad it makes you or converstion to convience us you mean well.   I say all that to say, we teach, screem, shout, and cry for our youth and families who do not understand the Law, the convience of being paid to be ignorant, all state funded assistance are not freedom and not intended to free the dum.  Many do not realize the effects of the law on our youth, they have given up, and there is nothing more distrubing than counseling motivating parent who have given up on their children because she has live the crab life so long she is out of touch with reality you may not see what we hear when you discuss our President, when you start there and trickle down to a converstion of controversy of blacks we need more than you have a position, a show a degree and a job we need to smell, see, and taste the life at the bottom of the barrel.  Our important educated adolecents in our communities share the same syndrom as our illiterate or ingorant, so lets us talk ecomomics and class-isum and intellegent unity I to get blind sited when passionate about how I feel and think but I have learned that my passion sounds strange to the person who has no ideal or goals. Speak to us and we will hear you.......
