When a white man had raped a Black teenager in Dutchess County, New York and, after a jury trial, there was a judicial finding that this white man, Steven Pagones, had been involved in the rape and kidnapping of this minor, Tawana Brawley. New York has ignored this conclusive, judicial finding and is requiring Tawana Brawley, an adult, to pay, Steven Pagones, the kidnapper and rapist, for the rest of her life. This kind of judicial misconduct ticked off Christopher Dorner.
When a white man rapes a Black woman in Manhattan and a runaway grand jury indicts the white man for rape, the district attorney usurped judicial power to undo the indictment on the ground that he personally disbelieves Nafissatou Diallo. Credibility is an issue that is exclusively reserved for either the grand jury or a petit jury. A district attorney lacks the power to undo an indictment on the ground of credibility. In every jury trial, a judge must give this instruction to the jury. The Black community should have filed a writ of prohibition.
The bottom line, however, is that a Black woman has no right to accuse a white man of rape. No Black woman in New York has ever been able to successfully accuse a white man of rape. This goes back to the slave codes which is still in effect in New York. The prisons are full of innocent Black men because jury instructions for Black defendants come out of the slave codes and not from natural law.
No Black attorney or Black preacher has ever been able to defend Black, female, rape victims without suffering punishment. Rev. Vernon Johns was removed from Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, AL for coming to the aid of two rape victims. Alton Maddox was “barred” from all courtrooms in New York. He still has a law license but he is unable to use it anywhere in the United States.
“Date rape” is unavailable to any Black female. This should mean that no right-thinking Black female and especially a Black teenager should date a white male. Legitimate rape is available to any white male who rapes a Black female. Cong. Todd Akin of Missouri “let the cat out of the bag”. This is still the law in Missouri after Celia A. Slave. In that case which was decided after Dred Scott, the Missouri Supreme Court found “legitimate rape” to be a legal defense for white men. New York adopted this judicial reasoning.
I am “guilty” of not knowing my place. Dr. Carter G. Woodson explains this infraction in “Miseducation of the Negro”. This rule was created during slavery and it is also still being enforced today. While Blacks in New York honor it today, I had refused to honor it in Jim Crow Georgia. My place is with the “white ruling class”. I have always demanded and have been given an “interim” seat at the dining room table in the “Big House”.
There will be a major rally focused around the ordeal of Tawana Brawley at the Brooklyn Christian Center, 1061 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn on Wednesday, February 13, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. Anyone who is not afraid of the wrath of white slaveholders may address the audience in addition to a presentation by Alton Maddox. Junior Jawara Blake, host of “Meeting in the African Village Square” on WVIP-FM (93.5) on Saturdays at midnight will be the keynote speaker.
