White supremacists only speak two languages: legalese and military science. Neither language emanates from the caves of Europe but whites now understand that these languages are necessary for survival. They form the basis for all business and political communications. Pig Latin has no place in the survival of a race except for sustaining slavery on the plantation.
“Legacy” is a term found in the law of wills and trusts. For the last four hundred years, descendants of enslaved Africans have been saddled down with negative, reputation evidence and negative, habit evidence without reparations. “Badges of slavery” is still a continuing wrong that only supports the argument for reparations.
After 1787, descendants of enslaved Africans were victims of “constitutional defamation” and after the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation, they have continued to be saddled down with bad habits and with a damaging reputation. We have lost our credibility and our culture. Therefore, we are unable to engage in business.
After the death of Gil Noble, it became crystal clear that blacks had no knowledge of the laws of wills and trusts or the import of credibility and culture. The thrust of this knowledge should be to preserve one’s legacy. Blacks allowed for Noble’s legacy to be squandered. All blacks have a responsibility to insulate “community property.” We have also allowed for the legacy of Elombe Brath to be squandered.
After the demise of “Like It Is” in 2011, the name was changed to “Here and Now.” The plan was supplant “public affairs programming” with “arts and entertainment programming.” I immediately started legal workshops at the Cotton Club in Harlem to educate interested persons to mount challenges in the FCC
. At the end of each workshop, I had to stay in “good graces” with the Cotton Club by paying the balance of the food bill in addition to paying for all instructional costs for the legal workshops. “Social parasites” were not barred from the sumptuous, breakfast buffet. This is called “goodwill.”
In 2014, I alerted the Freedom Party and United African Movement of the need to fashion a “Petition to Deny.” It would require substantial resources including legal literature, legal software, secretarial help, clerical assistance and other resources in addition to travel and lodgings in D.C. in 2015. Medgar Evers had been assassinated for challenging the communications industry.
The challenges that Evers made to WLBT-TV in Jackson, MS for equal time to respond to the Citizen’s Council’s televised tirades would prompt his assassination, on June 12, 1963, and would give rise to filing a “Petition to Deny” with the FCC. In 1979, the FCC awarded the license of WLBT-TV to a black-controlled group headed by Aaron Henry. This is a possibility of a “Petition to Deny.”
Although no financial help has been forthcoming for me, I was able to, nonetheless, plow through thick and difficult terrain without a shovel to fashion and submit a “Petition to Deny.” This has been done for not only the specific benefit of Gil Noble and Elombe Brath but also for the specific benefit of Drs. John Henrik Clarke and Yosef ben-Jochannan.
Neither UAM, the Freedom Party nor the black community has apparently ever heard of a mutual benefit association. Since 1988, UAM has made a heavy investment in black history. Guest speakers have come from all over the world. Until 2010, UAM had functioned on a “business model.” Marcus Garvey would not be able to recognize it today.
Send a postcard or an e-mail to President Barack Obama with the following message: “Blacks Need Public Affairs Programming like WABC-TV’s ‘Like It Is’ in 2011.” The White House controls the Federal Communications Commission which regulates and controls the quality of information over the airwaves. Dr. Martin L. King, Jr., is credited with using this tool with maximum effectiveness. Medgar Evers was a purveyor.
