Revs. Butts and Mason Stood Up: Why? Ethics ©
By Alton H. Maddox, Jr.
Slave codes not only prohibited descendants of enslaved Africans from forming an assembly of three persons, New York Penal Law § 240.10 also defines “unlawful assembly” as constituting at least four persons. This was my line of reasoning in “Central Park 7” in fashioning questions in a motion to suppress.
After I demonstrated that the arrest of a Central Park youth was a “badge of slavery,” Justice Thomas Galligan had no other choice but to dismiss the indictment against my client. Good advocacy started with demonstrating that, in New York, slavery was still in effect. This is a violation of the Thirteenth Amendment.
Blacks, in New York, were offended that a Black attorney did not know his place. We sick boss? Black men are being routinely sent to prison, in New York with no evidence. After the Marla Hanson case, the New York Legislature passed the “Maddox Law.” No Black attorney can question a white woman when a Black man is charged with her rape. Marla Hanson appealed to the U.S. Senate. New York retaliated against Maddox.
In its decision-making process, to arrive at a verdict, New York uses a racial dichotomy. There is a victim and also a target. This racial dichotomy engages in “”masking.” Black’s Law Dictionary 997 (8th ed. 2004) defines “masking” as “merely an elaborate system of social injustices.
Every legal decision must incorporate HELP (History Ethics Logic Philosophy.) A one line decision like, “judgment affirmed” is not an appealable decision. “Might makes right.” It means Nigger get lost! A Negro is “one and done” in a trial. I would demand an appealable decision. This requires a motion to reargue. Prisons are filled with victims of the U.S. Constitution and the United Nations Charter.
I successfully demanded that Chief Justice Sol Wachtler, of New York’s highest court, establish a blue-ribbon panel to investigate racism in New York’s judicial system. Racism was running amuck. This panel found that New York’s judicial system was “infested with racism.”
The panel made 76 recommendations including a permanent commission on minorities. Nonetheless, Blacks kept going to prison with no resistance. This condition continues unabated. No Negro titleholder has ever commented on “judicial racism” in New York. Negro titleholders have refused to draft any remedial legislation.
No descendant of enslaved Africans has demanded that Negro titleholders, including member of the state’s duopoly and the Freedom Party be subject to public accountability. No radio host, subject to the FCC, is demanding the outlawing of censorship in New York. I am the only person who has filed a grievance, in the FCC, against the misuse of the public airwaves.
There is also a “Maddox Law” in New York on requiring attorneys to take on pro bonocases. I am also the founder of the Medgar Evers Center for Law and Social Justice. This is a public interest law firm originally intended to provide support for attorneys in difficult cases. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has made it virtually dysfunctional. This is Cuomo’s “War on Blacks.”
When an attorney and his wife have been victimized by a Bill of Attainder, only a “deaf, dumb and blind Negro” would sanction it. It also happened to Khallid Muhammad. No Black person, in New York, should stick out his or her neck for “lazy and shiftless Negroes” and especially those Negroes who favor “chitlin-circuit operations.”
The goal of American jurisprudence is supposed to be “a search for the truth.” The Kerner Commission stated that the nation was moving toward two societies — “one black, one white; separate and unequal.” This condition was attacked in Brown v. Board of Education, 347 U.S. 483 (1954).
Both Rev. Butts and Rev. Mason were able to elevate their principles over my personality. This is called ethics. Many members of the executive committee of the Freedom Party boycotted the homegoing services of Leola Weaver Maddox. Sis. Karen Mason asked for the names of members of the committee. They have, steadfastly, refused to submit resumes. Accordingly, the letterhead lacks their names.
Any support would be greatly appreciated, to defray a due balance on Leola’s homegoing services and burial. For attacking white supremacy, Blacks refuse to grant death benefits in a lump sum or otherwise to a spouse. Checks or money orders should be made payable to “Alton H. Maddox, Jr.” and sent to:
