Trump knows a great “deal” about ethics. He and John Gotti were graduated from New York Military Academy. They learned military ethics. The Citadel was established in response to Denmark Vesey. Nat Turner caused the establishment of the Virginia Military Institute.
Trump was graduated from Wharton School of Finance in Philadelphia, PA. Noah Robinson, Rev, Jesse Jackson’s brother, was also graduated from Wharton. Like Trump, he also had a fascination with organized gangs. Both Robinson and Trump amassed a great “deal” of wealth from “puffing.” Wharton also taught Trump business ethics.
Now, we must consult Steven Biko: “The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.” Negative pre-trial publicity was the dagger that did in the “Central Park 7”. Trump seized and usurped the airwaves. According to Sun Tzu’s Art of War, the first stage of warfare is “propaganda.”
I had to use a military tactic to save my client, Michael Briscoe: pre-emptive strike. At the arraignment, the prosecution announced that it was ready to persecute Briscoe. This was my response: “Put twelve in the box” in the “Central Park 7.” The prosecution accused me of not knowing American jurisprudence. I quickly walked Briscoe out of a “snake pit.”
I have to plead guilty to an “ignorance” of American jurisprudence. The prosecution was correct. After reading Dred Scott on my first day of law school, I refused to continue studying American jurisprudence. Military science was the key to representing blacks. I wrote my own textbooks.
The Washington Post was smart. On Mother’s Day 1987, I was described on its magazine’s front cover as “Mr. Civil Rights in the Courtroom.” Jill Nelson had been dispatched to Coweta County, GA to write the story. Chief Coweta presided over the Creek Nation in Coweta County. We studied the Creek Nation in high school. I had been an “angry, angry, angry” black student about white supremacy in high school.
White supremacists, and especially the Ku Klux Klan, know a great “deal” about ethics. They will not allow a political duopoly to silence or exterminate anyone, including Donald Trump, who speaks out on behalf of “angry white voters” without facing a “political rebellion.”
Because of a lack of ethics, only blacks will allow someone who is a voice for the poor, the oppressed and the downtrodden to be silenced or exterminated. Blacks are not “angry” at anybody. Otherwise, there should be “hell to pay.” Ethics is the glue that allows a people to stick together.
Blacks saved the Union in 1865. We are the only ethnic group that can save this country today but it will come at a price. “An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” “You must be just before you are generous.” These are universal truths in Maat. Donald Trump is only a political commentator. I am the political forecaster.
I will be making a rare appearance at UAM’s weekly forum, 1068 Atlantic Avenue (bet. Classon and Franklin) in Brooklyn on March 23, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. My exercises on “Trump and Ethics” will emulate a military classroom. No video-taping is allowed. Pen, pad and a clipboard are recommended especially to retain the reading materials.
The keynote speaker is Dr. Patricia Newton of Baltimore, MD. Her “role model” was Dr. Frances Cress Welsing. I do not need to say anymore. If Dr Welsing had been available on January 1, 1863, our plight in the United Snakes of America would have been different. I am also an angry, angry, angry “Independent” voter.

THE NEED TO UPGRADE RESEARCH TOOLS
Malcolm X said it best: “Of all the disciplines, history is best qualified to reward our research.” Law is history, first and foremost. This is why research is an essential tool for a competent and zealous attorney. Blacks are entitled to receive well-researched and well-written articles.
Dr. John Henrik Clarke said that the nineteenth century is crucial to understanding white supremacy. My articles always use the nineteenth century as a guide. Blacks not only need to read the dictum in Scott v. Sanford, 19 How. (60 U.S.) 393 (1857) but also its letter and spirit.
Mark Riley, a former broadcaster with WLIB-AM, in a broadcast, told Elinor Tatum, publisher of the New York Amsterdam News, that my weekly op-ed pieces, alone, were worth the cost of the tabloid. This did not set well with Tatum. When her dad, Bill Tatum, made his transition, I received a pink slip. I was an unpaid journalist with the New York Amsterdam News and my writings have always been free to the community.
An award-winning journalist, Earl Caldwell, said on WBAI-FM said that my op-ed pieces were the best in New York. The production of these writings carries considerable costs. For blacks to continue to receive the best information, the acquisition of new research materials is necessary. Propaganda is the first stage of warfare. See, for example, the “Central Park 7.”
