Afrikan/Black People Should Have F.O.C.U.S

Re: Afrikan/Black People Should Have F.O.C.U.S
(Families Opposing Celebrating Unsavory Symbolism)
Gatherings Against Genocidal “Hollow Days!!”

Our Afrikan/Black ancestors and those of us at present have endured a level of genocidal brutality in these United States that has never been experienced by any other group in the history of planet Earth. One of the major contradictions in that regard is our continued and lost  participation as a people in bogus “hollow days” that are racist in their nature and are used as vehicles of propaganda by the forces of white supremacy.

There are numerous examples such as Columbus Day which honors Christopher “fungus among us” Columbus who allegedly discovered this country despite the fact that Native Peoples were already here when he arrived. Another fact that is never highlighted is that he was a major transporter of Afrikan slaves all over the world.  In addition, how can we forget the little white fat guy in the red suit who supposedly delivers gifts all around the world in his sleigh in one night.  We as a people have been “bamboozled” into this fraud called Santa Claus that has nothing to do with religion and results in our wasting more money during that time period and making white business owners richer. ITS TIME TO CELEBRATE KWANZAA!!!

This brings me to what I refer to as “Misgiving” which is mistakenly referred to as “Thanksgiving” in my opinion. How can we allow ourselves to “give thanks” for the extermination of Native Peoples.  As “Brother” Malcolm X stated, “We didn’t land on Plymouth Rock, the rock landed on us!!”  This gives clarity to our situation as Afrikan/Black people and our participation in this “hollow day” makes us look like the real “turkeys.”

Now, let me offer a different path to take as Afrikan/Black people regarding these alleged “hollow days.”  Granted that in many instances these are times wherein our families come together in which I fully support.  However we need to adopt a new spirit that removes the lies and gives integrity to our Afrikan/Black family gatherings. I am proposing that we as a people nationwide adopt a holiday theme entitled F.O.C.U.S (Families Opposing Celebrating Unsavory Symbolism).

The F.O.C.U.S theme would apply to all questionable “hollow days” and allow for a coming together of our families and provide an opportunity to “set the record straight” particularly for our youth.  The real truth of our glorious Afrikan legacy can be shared and the genocidal “hollow days” can be put behind us as we F.O.C.U.S on our future.

Re: A “Hollow Day” Celebrating Christopher “Fungus Among Us” Columbus Who Was A Major Participant In The Afrikan Slave Trade!!!!!

It is a well-known fact that Christopher “fungus among us” Columbus was a seafaring clod who happened to stumble upon the shores of what is known as these United States. Upon his alleged “discovery” of this land, he was confronted with the reality of the Native Peoples who had been residing here for hundreds of years before his belated arrival.

He and his ruthless gang of marauders and in the name of white supremacy, proceeded to implement a ruthless campaign of genocide that resulted in the murders of thousands of Native American men, women and children. In spite of these atrocities, the forces of white supremacy have promoted “fungus among us” Columbus as some type of hero that allegedly “discovered” this land that would become what is known today as the United States.

True history shows this to be one big lie, but tradition wise is no surprise. How else would you explain the slave-owning alleged forefathers of this country such as Jefferson, Washington and others being promoted as heroes. Also the belief that the civil war was fought to end slavery, which it wasn’t or that the pilgrims landed at “Plymouth Rock” with “godly intentions,” when in fact it was just the opposite with their genocidal actions. The Columbus Day lie is nothing more then the continuation of the many untruths celebrated by white people in this country in an attempt to cover up their sordid history of violence against melanin peoples!!!

Give credit to the Native American community as through the years they have campaigned against celebrating this bogus “hollow day” honoring this sadistic and murderous tyrant. The anti “hollow day” campaign has been national and resulting in many states changing the name to “Indigenous Peoples Day.” It appears Native Peoples will be relentless until the goal of having the Columbus name eradicated forever is achieved through time.

Interestingly the one thing that is never mentioned is the fact that “fungus among us” Columbus was also a major slave trader resulting in the brutal deaths of many enslaved Afrikans. During his unseaworthy travels, many Afrikans were kidnapped and dropped off in many countries including the United States, Caribbean, South America, etc. Once again as is in many instances the case, human atrocities against Afrikan people are overlooked and ignored, which I believe is no accident.

Yes it is quite evident that we as Afrikan people residing in the USA should support this “hollow day” having a name change to “Indigenous Peoples Day!!” However we should make it very clear that we “boycott” the celebration of this “hollow day” also due to the suffering that our Afrikan ancestors also endured at that time at the hands of the brutal “fungus among us” Columbus and the support should be reciprocal in nature!!

The Curse Of White Supremacy Has No Mercy For Racial Diversity!!!

These United States were established as a republic in the 1700’s by slave owning alleged “founding fathers.”  The ensuing centuries have seen a level of brutality against Afrikan/Black people never seen before in the history of man/woman kind.  Unfortunately, that genocidal attitude continues to this very day and possibly worse.

I say that because the evils of full blown racism and white supremacy have been simmering beneath the surface for quite some time.  However, with the emergence of the Trump era presidency, the “covers have come off, ” and we as Afrikan/Black people are feeling the “full fury” of this country’s racist history in full throttle mode.

In the “mix” you had alleged anti-racism protest marches in Charlottsville, Virginia, and Boston, Massachusetts that were mostly attended by white people.  These marches were being billed as protesting against racism and fascism, but Afrikan/Black people “by in large” did not show up in any significant numbers for either march.  That was due to the realization these events were not convened to serve in the best interest of our people or further our liberation effort!!!

Let’s be candid in that although there was a tragic death in Charlottesville; nothing has really changed.  Yes while there were white racists in attendance openly displaying their hatred with Nazi regalia and chanting “heil” Hitler, what about those who were supposedly in opposition to these hateful beliefs??  They yelled anti racist slogans, but were they just words and nothing more??  You be the judge!!!  I contend that the comfort level of racism existed on both sides. On the one hand, you had the side that openly displayed their racial hatred while others were claiming opposition. Many either lived in the host city or returned to their own respective racist white towns and cities where institutional racism is “alive and well!!”  Some examples would be income disparity between Black and white, education gaps, segregated housing, police brutality, etc.


What we as Afrikan/Black people must understand is white supremacy is not going anywhere anytime soon and white people “by and large” do not want it too as they enjoy their present status even though it is in decline.  The realization is that white supremacy is systemic in nature and we cannot look to imaginary white allies in seeking our liberation.  We must look to ourselves and build our own “nation within a nation” that would sustain us like everyone else. The true answer is owning our land, schools, businesses, hospitals, etc.  Only then can we make a real stand against the disease known as white supremacy.  Forget these bogus type marches (Charlottesville and Boston) as we must march (not literally) to our own liberation!!!

Nubian Leadership Circle “On The Move” In The Spirit Of Honorable Marcus Garvey!!

We as Afrikan/Black people in these United States have endured a 400-year history of senseless brutality led by the evil forces of white supremacy. Slavery, lynchings, rape are among the many atrocities our ancestors suffered, and in many respects such as police genocide, that violent legacy continues to this very day in various forms or fashion.

Although white historians would like for us to believe otherwise,there were and have been many efforts of resistance to ongoing violations of our basic human rights in this country. One such effort was led by Marcus Mosiah Garvey who was born in 1877 in London, England. He led the formation of the United Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), which took on an international perspective in regards to Afrikan/Black people standing up for our rights!!!

The UNIA had a “do for self” agenda which advocated for having our own schools, hospitals, land control, businesses, etc. Of course, the racist United States Government could not sit aside and allow this movement to flourish and went into attack mode. This resulted in a direct and destructive war on the UNIA  to  its ranks and effectiveness. Many other similar efforts have suffered the same fate such as “Black Wall Street” in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the Black Panther Party, etc. Fortunately, the Nation Of Islam under the leadership of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan still stands as a symbol of what and where we need to go as it pertains to self-preservation for our community.

I myself was involved in the National Afrikan-American Leadership Summit, which for various reasons did not reach its full potential. That experience fueled my interest in seeing a viable and holistic effort being made to establish a “united front” of national Afrikan/Black leadership.
The first step was to publish and release my now over ten-year blog which was intended to enlighten my people about relevant issues that affect us on a daily basis and encourage the efforts needed to improve our condition. It now appears that further action needs to be taken.

Due to the high level of despair and disunity in our community, I felt compelled to take the Nubian Leadership Circle to another level with a call for national Afrikan/Black leadership to come together in a proposed holistic fashion to establish a common agreed upon agenda in the best interest of our people. A large and much-needed effort to be made.

The initial step has been taken with a “launch” held in June 2017 with a Nubian Leadership Circle “Circle Of Black Umoja” sponsored “unity breakfast” held to discuss an agenda to formulate a strategy needed in moving forward. It was determined to have a much needed follow up session which will be convened on Saturday, August 19, 2017 (Garvey weekend) at the Sheraton Silver Spring (Afrikan/Black owned) Hotel Restaurant (reasonable menu) which is located at 8777 Georgia Avenue (just across DC line) in Silver Spring, Maryland.

This is a call for national Afrikan/Black leadership to come aboard and join this very important endeavor by being in attendance or at the very least send a local organization representative. For those who are interested and seek more information, you are requested to confirm your organizational participation at 202-540-0267 or hamisi@verizon.net. We as a people must come together, share our brilliant minds, mobilize our resources as we seek to build a “Nation Within A Nation” that is not unique to other groups and long overdue.

Rely on Red, Black, Green — Deny “4th of A Lie (July 4th) Hollow-Day!!!”

This republic called the United States of America was officially established in the 1700’s with the signing of the racist U.S. Constitution. This document declared “all men were created equal.” The question at hand is “which men” were the slave owners — alleged Founding Fathers —  referring to? It is a known fact that we as Afrikan/Black people were classified as only being 2/3 of a human being, which comes as no surprise.

Our legacy in this slave holding country was to have been subjected to levels of atrocity never seen or experienced before on this planet in the history of man/woman kind. Our more than 400 years experience in this country has consisted of disenfranchisement,  lynching, rape, murder, etc. In spite of this, our enslavers, past and present have encouraged us to participate in their so-called “independence day” celebration that I will refer to as the “4th of a lie hollow-day!!

Strangely, through the years of our people desiring a delusional goal to be accepted by this racist society, the grills (vegetarian suggested) are fired up with red, white, blue flags shown prominently to adorn the surroundings. I to this very day cannot understand this while the Confederate flag controversy continues to simmer, my Afrikan/Black “Brothers/Sisters” continue to embrace this symbol (U.S. flag) of oppression in spite of our ongoing exploitation.

It is overdue that we do a true assessment of these various hollow-days that we continue to participate in and are celebrated in this country. The 4th of a lie hollow-day represents a “declaration of independence” for the advocating of white supremacy in this country. Should we as Afrikan/Black people realistically be celebrating alleged “independence” when we have suffered for these many years that continues to this very day?? I would think not!!!

It is well past time for us as a people to acknowledge our continuing oppressive situation. The examples would be income disparity, police murder, high incarceration rates, poor education, inadequate housing, etc. We can make a strong statement by boycotting not only physically, but also spiritually these bogus hollow-days and especially the 4th of a lie!!

We know it is a tradition for our families to get together on these various hollow-day dates and the 4th of a lie is no exception. We should from this point and ongoing, abandon these hollow-day titles that represent racism/white supremacy and declare them “Family Mkutano” (Swahili for gathering). Not only would these be family centered, but also present the chance to educate the truth, especially to our youth about the real story of what these very racist type hollow-days like the 4th of a lie truly represent.

How much longer will we continue contributing to our oppression by promoting these lies!!! Now is the time to celebrate our Afrikan/Black selves. Take down the red, white, blue and replace it with our liberation color RED, BLACK, Green flags that represent our blood shed for our liberation, our color/culture and land needed to build our own “nation within a nation.”

Let us aspire as a people to achieve our own “independence” from oppression by rejecting false promises (integration and assimilation) and strive to build for ourselves with our own resources and brain power to have schools, businesses, hospitals, land, etc. that is owned and controlled by us!! Only then can we celebrate independence.

Long Live Kwanzaa

“Black Lives Matter” Getting Paid Not To Matter!!!

The 21st Century is proving once again that white supremacy and the tradition of police genocide against Afrikan/Black people in this country is a constant reality. The victim list
is lengthy and continues to grow with police murders of Trayvon Martin, Sandra Bland, Laquand McDonald among many others with the most recent being the police shotgun murder of 15-year-old Jordan Edwards in Balch Springs, Florida.

An interesting development out of this genocidal slaughter by the police was “Black Lives Matter,” which evolved out of the police killing of 18-year-old teenager, Michael Brown in
Ferguson, Missouri. BLM was a slogan that caught on at the time and was authored by and capitalized on by three “queer” women named Alicia Garza, Patrice Cullars and Opel Tometie.
I am sure there are those who are curious as to why their sexual orientation is a factor to be mentioned in this situation. That will be clarified as playing a central role as defined by the
information that will be provided in moving forward with this latest blog entry.

I have done extensive research on Black Lives Matter and everything is not as it may be portrayed. Protests have been held all across the country against police brutality and Black
Lives Matter is given the false credit. It is not a “movement,” but in reality a “smokescreen” attempt to use our “struggle for Afrikan/Black liberation” as a cover for their real intent to promote their real agenda of attempting to legitimize the “gay life style.”

The Black Lives Matter founders have declared themselves as the “New Black Man!!” The message being conveyed that we as Afrikan/Black men are not needed. How else would you explain their proclaimed mission statement as follows? “Historically, the Black Power Movement has left our Black ‘queer’ people and specifically Black trans women. The Black Lives Matter movement [?] is rectifying the all too common pressure of Black ‘queer’ and trans women and making sure they are recognized as the influential leaders of the movement [?]
they are.” This actual quote is a true indicator of their mission and it clearly has nothing to do with the advancement of the cause for “Black Liberation.”

Furthermore, how do you explain that the BLM founders have gained financially from their alleged fight against police brutality? You have multi-millionaire George Soros who has in
fact pumped many of his millions into the effort as a control measure. In addition, you have Ms. Garza and her organization, the National Domestic Workers Alliance receiving a grant in the amount of $450,000.00 from the Casey Foundation. The same can be said for Ms. Cullors whose Ella Baker Center For Human Rights received a $500,000.00 Google grant. It
would be difficult for them to advocate for our Afrikan/Black liberation and not violate their non-profit 501c3 status. In fact with the many recent police killings of Afrikan/Black men all across the country, have you heard anything from Black Lives Matter? Their “silence is deafening!!! Accepting funds from those you alleged were the enemy can do just that.

This is not a condemnation of many of our Afrikan/Black youth who are sincerely out in the streets with a desire to see positive change in our community. However, we must not let ourselves be co-opted by such groups like Black Lives Matter that was all talk with nothing concrete being developed. A movement would result in having our own schools, businesses, hospitals, etc. We need an action plan with a spirit of “doing for self.”

We must stand up as a people and community, particularly Afrikan/Black men and develop an infrastructure that would cure the ills of our community internally and externally. Only then will we achieve the needed goal of confidence and self-respect needed to stabilize and advance our cause of liberation for our people.

The Nubian Leadership Circle Launches A Call For Afrikan/Black Umoja (Unity) Agenda!!!!!

It is now into the 21st Century, and we as Afrikan/Black people find ourselves in a virtual “state of war” for our very survival due to the negative aggressiveness of the forces of white supremacy and racism. White folks are becoming more violent due to their paranoia regarding their declining power base and lack of a true and humane agenda.

So in the era of President Donald Trump and his racist declarations, the question is what are we as Afrikan/Black people prepared to do for ourselves? We cannot continue to sit back, complain and hope for the next forthcoming traditional handout that has not and will never happen. That in my estimation is a good thing as we have the resources (1.7 trillion dollars spending power and growing) and the brilliant minds among us to make it happen for ourselves.

The most difficult problem is our lack of Umoja (Unity). We have a significant number of organizations in our community, including churches, who if unified could make a significant difference. However, that has proven to be a difficult task to achieve. In my opinion, a true model was the historic “Million Man March” convened by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan in October 1995 in Washington, DC. It had a tremendous and positive impact all across the country, but unfortunately, the continuous energy required did not happen. It was a case of Minister Farrakhan doing all he could by providing the model, but we did not follow through as a community as we should have!!! That is on us!!

The “Million Man March” gave me the opportunity to connect with Afrikan/Black leadership in our community from across the nation. That inspired me to create and write my blog entitled the Nubian Leadership Circle for the last several years to encourage “collective national thought and leadership” on the very issues that affect our everyday lives. Conditions under we now exist caused me to do a great deal of reflection.

Therefore, I have decided to take the Nubian Leadership Circle to the next level by calling for organizational “coalition building” on an active level. This would be an effort once again to bring our national leadership together in the spirit of Umoja (unity) to agree on a common agenda addressing many relevant issues in our community. Examples would be education, health, business, land, etc.

The official “launch” will happen on the weekend of June 23-24, 2017, which is also when Carl Nelson of WOL radio in Washington, DC is convening the “Power Talk 4 Series.” Brother Carl has arranged for the conference attendees to stay at the Afrikan/Black owned Sheraton Silver Spring Hotel at which I will be staying.

The plan is for the Nubian Leadership Circle to sponsor a Circle Of Black Unity (COBU) brunch on Saturday, June 24, 2017, 10:00 AM until 12:00 noon in the restaurant of the hotel which is located at 8777 Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring, Maryland. At that time an agenda will be introduced for discussion and developing an action plan. Attendance is open to all in our community along with conference attendees. The “brunch” will be concluded no later then 12:00 noon out of respect for those who will need to proceed to day two of the “powertalk series” in Washington, D.C.

We request those who intend to attend the “brunch” to RSVP in advance as we are in need of the final attendance number to complete preparation details. You can call 202-540-0267 or e-mail hamisi@verizon.net by no later then Friday, June 23rd, 12:00 to make a “brunch” reservation. We look forward to this important occasion.

In conclusion, I have reached out to Minister Farrakhan and others in seeking broad support for this effort which is hopefully forthcoming in the near future. The time is now for us to in fact “handle our own business.” Let this important work begin!!!

Re: Killers Of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. . . . . Remain Free 49 Years Later!!!

April 4, 2017 marks the 49th anniversary of the assassination Of Reverend/Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The murder of Dr. King happened at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee on April 4. 1968. At that time a white racist male named James Earl Ray was charged as the assassin and sentenced to life in prison. He later recanted his admission of guilt and due to that fact, the King family filed a civil law suit in the Memphis court system in 1999.

After a lengthy trial was held, the jury returned with a verdict that the assassination of Dr. King was “due to a conspiracy by agencies of the United States Government.” There is documented evidence (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, trial )  identifying names (J. Edgar Hoover/FBI, etc.) along with the many others involved. In fact, it reveals the actual assassination shooter was a now deceased police lieutenant from the Memphis Police Dept. All the facts are there for public consumption and viewing.

What is most disturbing is the fact that although the truth is known, the actual killers of Dr. King have not been brought to justice. Since the year 2000, our organization, the Black Community Information Center Inc. located in Boston, Mass. has sent letters on a yearly basis calling on various presidents (Clinton, W. Bush, Obama) from the past to take the needed action that would instruct their respective justice departments to establish a “special grand jury” to investigate, identify and prosecute those responsible for this horrendous act. The response to our urgent request was acknowledgement of receipt and total silence!!

This being the Trump era presidency, reality dictates that a new strategy be pursued. Therefore, it is our intent to now focus energy for justice towards the Congressional Black Caucus and senior member, Mr. John Lewis. Congressman Lewis was a close confidant of Dr. King and we hope his relationship will inspire him to take the lead in moving the process for justice. He along with his “Caucus” colleagues know the truth along with other alleged Afrikan/Black leaders (Sharpton, J. Jackson, King III, Andrew Young, etc.), but no action to this point has been taken. A letter is being sent to Congressman Lewis, urging himself and the Congressional Black Caucus to take the lead in seeking justice for Dr. King and his family.

The “Caucus” should at the very least file legislation calling for the “special grand jury” to investigate the assassination of Dr. King. In fact a precedent has been set by former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney who in 2002 filed the “Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Reform Act”. This legislation would immediately release past evidence on the case that has been “sealed” until the year 2027. The “Caucus” should lead the way in having that pertinent evidence released immediately. In addition as an added incentive, the “Emmett
Till Civil Rights Authorization Act 2016” was filed by the Obama administration. This legislation calls for “investigating all racial crimes committed before year 1980.” These two legislative actions serve as a clear path to pursue the investigation and put the facts out for public review.

Most importantly, Dr. King gave up his life for Afrikan/Black people and we should be relentless until this case is resolved. You are urged to get on board with this campaign by contacting the office of Congressman Lewis to demand action by the “Caucus” as our duly elected officials. Let him and his colleagues know we want the “special grand jury” to be established and pursuit of the previously mentioned filed legislation in 2002 and 2016 respectively. You can reach his office at 202-225-3801. Make the power of our community be heard by making those calls and sending a strong message for justice!!!

In closing you are encouraged o click on the attachment below and listen to a song I have shared in the past. It gives you a melodic fact finding summary of the assassination of Dr. King. It is written and sung by talented Boston songstress Ms. Rosalie Placid. Listen to the words and hear the story to be told!!!

Letter to  Congressman Richmond

Re: Afrikan/Black People In U.S.A. Are Better Off With a President Trump!!

We are now in the early stages of the Donald Trump presidency.  Turmoil seems to be the theme of the day as the “Donald” embarks on fulfilling his campaign promises  filled with racist and fascist bluster.  His proclaimed agenda includes building a wall along the Mexican border in order to send a very strong, although questionable message, that is anti-immigrant in nature!! In addition, his administration plans to defund  Planned Parenthood (I support the defunding) and replace “Obamacare.”

These are prime examples of the Trump vision for the future of this country.  The real question is what are the implications as it pertains to the status of Afrikan/Black people in the U.S.A.?  It is quite clear that Afrikan/Black people are very upset with the election of racist Donald Trump over racist Hillary Clinton in the past November, 2016 presidential election.  There is a very high level of misguided dismay in our community which I do not understand.  Trump made it quite clear during his campaign for the presidency that his policies were going to be racist in nature and not expect any support from his administration.  I, for one, can appreciate that type of evil honesty versus being told lies (Hillary Clinton) of “hope” that would never become a reality!!!

I for one am pleased with the Trump victory for various reasons.  We as a people sat idly by during the Obama era presidency as we became delusional into believing that the “post racial/hope” dream had arrived. Nothing could be further from the truth as  President Obama and his administration policies did more harm for our community then good!!  An example would be the documented fact that actual Afrikan/Black wealth decreased more then 10 percent while Obama resided in the opulent White House. That is our worst economic drought/drain since many years back during the “great depression.” Think about that!!!

So here we are as Afrikan/Black people facing a major dilemma in our moving forward.  We have a critical decision to make. Our understanding that the covers of white supremacy have been pulled back by the Trump administration for all of us to see. Yes, another racist administration in office and does that mean we are going to continue “crying the blues” due to the situation or “circle the wagons” and make a stand in regards to determining the path of our future.  Seemingly we do not have a choice!!  As Donald Trump declared to Afrikan/Black people in his uncaring manner, “what do you have to lose??”

It is often stated that we as Afrikan/Black people in this country have a GNP (grand national product) of $1.5 trillion dollars that we are presently spending as consumers on an annual basis and rising.  It is time for us to develop the needed consciousness of “doing for self!!!”  It is essential that we separate at the very least psychologically and do what is best for us.  That is not a selfish act as all other groups do it as everyday common practice for survival.  Hello, Little Italy, Chinatown and white people in general.

We need our own schools for our children, hospitals, businesses, etc.  Alleged integration and assimilation with white people was nothing more then a planned “sham” by the forces of white supremacy.  Examples like “Black Wall Street” needs to be our model with the intent to mobilize, utilize our own vast resources and brilliant brain power to make this become a reality.  In contrast to the beliefs of Donald Trump, I believe in the old adage that “we have everything to gain and nothing to lose!!”  All it takes is the will to believe in ourselves and we will prevail.

Justice for Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

Seeking Dr. King Assassination Justice And “Emmett Till” Civil Rights Crime Authorization Act 2016!!!

 
It was that infamous day of April 4, 1968, when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee.  A racist white man named James Earl Ray was charged as the killer, in spite of many unanswered questions.  The King family visited Ray in prison and after hearing his version of the situation, came away convinced that he did not commit this dastardly crime. Led by Mrs. Coretta Scott-King the family filed a civil suit in 1999.
 
A lengthy trial was held and the jury returned a verdict that “Dr. King was assassinated due to a conspiracy by agencies of the United States Government”.  Upon learning of the trial and reviewing the trial transcripts, we here at the Black Community Information Center, Inc., located in Boston, Massachusetts, embarked on a mission to seek justice for Dr. King and his family.  Since the year 2000, we have sent a letter every year to the sitting president (Clinton, W. Bush, Obama) requesting that a “special grand jury” be established to investigate the case and bring the real killers of Dr. King to justice!!!
 
Although the campaign has not achieved that goal (special grand jury) to this point, it is encouraging due to the legitimate nature of information being shared through the years that the conversation is gradually changing. There is now a realization that Dr. King was assassinated due to the “conspiracy” with direct government involvement.  Many of our alleged Afrikan/Black leadership are aware of the truth, but appear to be in fear of taking action.  Therefore, it will require community pressure to possibly make the type of impact required to see the appropriate action to be taken.
 
The Obama administration is in its final days and seemingly they would have nothing to lose by taking action needed to bring this travesty of justice to closure.  The first option would be the “special grand jury.” In addition back in 2002 with the support of then Senators Kerry and Clinton, Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney filed the “Martin Luther King Jr. Records Act.”  The intent of that “bill” was to order the immediate release of records related to the case which are sealed until the year 2027.  To this point, that has not happened and we should be demanding they be released in the immediate future!!!!
 
Additionally and very importantly, the Obama administration has quietly had the “Emmett Till Civil Rights Crimes Authorization Act 2016” passed in recent weeks.  You may recall that Emmett Till was the 14 year old Afrikan/Black youth who was visiting relatives in Mississippi in the 1950’s who was brutally murdered by racist white men for allegedly “whistling at a white woman!!”  Well this “bill” in his name calls for the investigation of “all racial crimes committed before the year 1980.”  The assassination of Dr. King would fall under that time frame and should receive prime consideration to be acted upon.
 
The time is short and we as a community must take direct action!!  You are urged to call the White House and demand from the Obama administration that the “Till Bill” be applied to the Dr. King assassination as a priority.  That would require consideration of the previously mentioned “special grand jury” and enforcement of the McKinney “reform act” legislation.  You can make contact at the White House by calling the “comment line” at 202-456-1111 and emphatically express your position on the issue.  It is essential that all concerned should also encourage your family, friends and neighbors to do the same.  The White House needs to in fact be swamped with calls.  That is the least we can do as Dr. King gave his life for us as Afrikan/Black people!!!
