When I resume the practice of law without the white man’s permission, I will first insist that I be treated as an officer of the court. Court officers have always had a difficult time recognizing me as an officer of the court. Most black lawyers refuse to seek this title. They hat a high “bar.” Blacks would love to go into the courthouse with me. All of my followers enjoyed respect. Black children loved it. They respect “Freedom Fighters.”
The black teacher at Spring Valley High School in Columbia, SC surrendered his classroom to the sheriff’s office. He falsely reported a crime. The black girl had not engaged in probable cause. No reason existed for a deputy sheriff to be summoned into the classroom. This was a false arrest.
The “High Court” in Brown v. Board of Education 347 U.S. 483 (1954) said that segregation has no place in the classroom. Black parents should initiate a federal, class action seeking a declaratory judgment and injunctive relief. This declaratory action should ascertain if a police officer has a place in a classroom. Probable cause restricts a law enforcement agent’s movements.
Black legislators also share some culpability. They have enacted repressive laws allowing for public schools to be, arbitrarily, subject to law enforcement agencies. Like New York, South Carolina also has a “no-sock” law. It is illegal for a black child to defend himself or herself against a wayward police officer or for another student to assist the victim. This is the protocol for a prison or a plantation.
South Carolina was at the top of the agenda of the planning conference at Howard University for the 2016 National Black Political Convention in Washington, DC on October 24, 2016. South Carolina was the first state to secede from the United States.
Within the past year, there has been the state-sponsored killing of Walter Scott in N. Charleston, SC and the racially-motivated killings at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston. South Carolina is at it again with Gov. Niki Haley at the helm.
At the planning conference, we fashioned a political strategy for Democrats in South Carolina. I asked Dick Gregory to revisit his 1968 write-in campaign for the presidency. The Wall Street Journalreported him the victor. No one should buy a used car without a test drive. It could be a “lemon.” The write-in vote is the test drive for a presidential candidate like that of Hillary Clinton. Her campaign could be a bait-and-switch.
Since the incident at Spring Valley high School in Columbia, SC the Freedom Party has been meeting almost daily. Last Wednesday at UAM’s weekly forum, 1061 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, NY, “Black Dot” was the keynote speaker. On November 4, 2015, the keynote speaker will be Eric K. Grimes who pennedWhy Our Children Hate Us.
This revised book will be on sale Wednesday night, November 4. Dick Gregory’s Write-me-In will also be on sale. I will be present to discuss a federal, class action seeking injunctive relief and a declaratory judgment. Someone must be a guardian ad litem for black children.
