United African Movement
When Judge Clarence Thomas appeared before Chairman Joseph Biden and the Senate Judiciary Committee, the committee was interested in Judge Thomas’ view of the construction of the U.S. Constitution. Judge Thomas assured the committee that he would construe the “Supreme Law” according to its “original intent.”
Coupled with the doctrine of stare decisis, blacks, under “original intent,” have no chance of being emancipated from slavery. Black women are already “chattel slaves.” Instead of liberating themselves from double jeopardy, most black women are blaming the messenger for the message. The casualty is “critical thinking.”
The idea of forming a black organization to continue the struggle for justice for Tawana Brawley and to promote Garveyism was formed and hatched at a coffee shop on Second Avenue near WLIB-AM in New York City. It happened shortly after the 1988 Democratic National Convention in Atlanta, GA. Rev. Al Sharpton was the messenger. The inauguration was on August 17, 1988 in Brooklyn.
If the incubator for the United African Movement had not attracted C. Vernon Mason, Joseph Mack and Sharpton, I would have summarily rebuffed the notion of an organization. Three black attorneys were in the fold, however. One black attorney also had an MBA degree. The other attorney had majored in business administration in college with a minor in economics.
White supremacists knew that this spelled trouble. First, “the business of America is business.” Second, lawyers run America. These lawyers were double trouble. The community was not ready for this equation. White supremacists dethroned them while blacks ran for the tall grass. The black community is still in hiding with their backs turned on these attorneys.
Joseph Mack was the architect of the United African Party in 1990 while I had my hands full representing Sharpton in two indictments. One indictment, consisting of sixty-seven counts, had its venue in Manhattan. The second indictment of three counts had its venue in Albany County. My representation was strictly pro bono. Only the New Alliance Party made any contributions for daily transcripts for Sharpton.
After Sharpton had been acquitted in Manhattan, Mack attempted to secure 15,000 signatures in New York, state-wide, to get on the ballot. Attorneys Michael Hardy and Harry Kresky, on behalf of the New York Alliance Party, sought to keep Mack and the United African Party off the ballot. The New Alliance Party eventually succeeded. Min. Louis Farrakhan and Sharpton endorsed Dr. Lenora Fulani for governor of New York.
In 1994, Maddox continued the legacy of the United African Party. The Freedom Party was formed at the headquarters of National Action Network on 125th Street in Harlem. Statewide activists were in attendance, but no activist, including Sharpton, would put a penny in the plate to finance it. Current members of the Steering Committee of the Freedom Party were unknown, in 1994, as statewide activists.
This should have been a wake-up call. If these statewide activists would refuse to finance a third party, it should not take a rocket scientist to conclude that the current members of the Freedom Party would follow suit. The idea of a Freedom Party should have been immediately dropped. Mack was ahead of his time. In-charge Negroes were hopefully immersed in “plantation politics.”
Dr. Frances Cress Welsing
I am now reading the public record with respect to the residence of Dr. Frances Cress Welsing in Washington, D.C. Malcolm X said its best: “Land is the basis of all revolutions.” No one in New York is seeking to preserve the legacy of Malcolm X. So-called activists are only celebrating his life while refusing to preserve his legacy. There is a difference.
Aside from the untold number of notices of appearance in pro bono cases that I have filed to protect the black community, I had also made a personal investment of over $1.5 million for twenty years in UAM after the inception of the United African Movement. Accordingly, I have a right to an annuity to finance any future struggle including protecting the residential property of Dr. Welsing. This is reciprocity.
I have already published, on Monday, an “excerpt” from a hearing before the D.C. Board of Zoning Adjustment. Dr. Welsing appeared without community backing and without having secured competent and zealous counsel to militate against the onslaught. I have repeatedly said that whites are bilingual. They only speak “legalese” and “military science.” Meanwhile blacks put have their fingers in their ears: “Hear nothing, see nothing and say nothing.”
The Negro World was the “house organ” for the Universal Negro Improvement association. Dr. W.E.B. Dubois penned the Crisis for the NAACP. To preserve the legacy of Marcus Garvey, I have penned an article, almost daily. The expense is at least $2,500.00 monthly. Freedom Party and UAM are guarding their treasuries with Gatling guns.
Several thousand persons receive these articles. I maintain a T account for each recipient. Over ninety-five percent of these recipients refuse to cough up a penny to subsidize this educational operation. Prof. Charles Hamilton Houston would describe these recipients as “social parasites.”
A house organ is important to provide an orientation to capitalism; to discuss HELP under the First Amendment; to address issues in remedial education and in continuing education. Blacks have put their trust in the NAACP which advocates and promotes the integration of the predator with the prey.
Information is power and ignorance of the law under American jurisprudence can be hazardous to your health. The rules in the criminal justice system were changed after slavery. Judges instruct the juries and jury nullification is now outlawed. A criminal defendant can be morally innocent and legally guilty.
2016 National Black Political Convention
Since black males were granted the right to vote in 1870, no demand with “or else” has ever been made on the Establishment in the United States. The teachings of our revered ancestor, Frederick Douglass, have been studiously ignored. Psychological slavery still exists in blacks. State-sponsored terrorism is still the engine that keeps blacks in check.
Slavery is a “crime against humanity.” No statute of limitations bars compensation for slavery. The 1863 Emancipation Proclamation was a fraud. It aided and abetted “slaves” to flee the plantation while relieving the slavemasters of compensation for slavery. Ignorance of the law encouraged “slaves” to fight for the Union for unequal pay.
By 2016, blacks are practicing “plantation politics” because of the fraudulent generosity of President Lyndon B. Johnson. Brain-washed Negroes believe that they owe the Democratic Party blind loyalty for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the defunct Voting Rights Act of 1965. Now, poor blacks are clearly political refugees under Citizens United v. Holder.
Income inequality is a big issue for Sen. Bernie Sanders who is actually a “stalking horse” for the Democratic Party. Blacks are already entitled to reparations but they are afraid to exercise First Amendment rights and to assemble, nationally, for a redress of grievances; namely, reparations. This isdistributive justice.
The Freedom Party was initially formed by Alton Maddox to pursue black nationalism. There has been a hijacking of the Freedom Party while gullible blacks have retreated to the bleachers. It is the primary responsibility of the Freedom Party to prepare for a 2016 National Black Political Convention to honor Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, an original convenor in Washington, D.C. on October 3, 2015.
It can start with immediately taking up the cause of the late Ramarley Graham in the Bronx. Maddox and C. Vernon Mason were responsible for the appointment of the first black district attorney. It happened in Bronx County and came after the first takeover of the World Trade Center. They started this process with making a demand “or else” on Gov. Mario Cuomo thanks to Frederick Douglass.
