“I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other.” Mother Harriet Tubman
I am dedicating all of my remaining posts this year to Black African American females because a race can rise no higher than its’ females. As in all of my posts, underlined words are links.
Yesterday was a very traumatic Saturday for me, resulting in my having mixed emotions ranging from feelings of anger and sadness. I started my day watching PBS’ Frontline documentary, “Secrets, Politics and Torture” depicting how President George W. Bush, his cabinet and Congress justified the use of torture and kidnapping despite the mandates of the Geneva Conventions , which America signed, prohibiting all forms of torture.
Osama Bin Laden, a brown-skinned African, (who resembled my uncle Benjamin Smith) was “allegedly” murdered/lynched by America’s military and his corpse was supposedly thrown off the deck of an American war ship into the ocean.
There was shouting and jubilation in America’s streets by mostly White American celebrants after hearing of this murder/lynching. After all, to them, he was just another “sand nigger” (“Arabs, typically those from the Gulf they tend to possess dark skin.”)
I say Osama Bin Laden’s death was “alleged” because our government has never provided substantial proof that they actually murdered/lynched him. Other than a few pictures, which could have been fake, the government want us to take the word of its’ spokespeople (including President Obama) that the dastardly deed was actually done.
They also want us to believe that the successful murder/lynching of Osama Bin Laden was the direct result of America’s terroristic reign of kidnapping and torture, as the justification for it to continue. The government told the American people that the end justifies the means, and we Americans accepted this premise and said “OK, good job; keep on keep’n on – massa.”
As I was gathering research on the history of Racism/Imperialism and White Supremacy, I came upon the post that Cleveland’s Judge John O’Donnell found Cleveland cop, Michael Brelo not guilty on all charges in the blatant lynching/execution of our Black African American Sister and Brother Timothy Russell, 43, and Malissa Williams, 30.
In other words, the Ku Klux Klan still controls America’s courts. Only now, they are wearing “black” robes instead of their “white” ones.
While watching the live video-feed of Judge O’Donnell as he began reading his justification for exonerating Brelo of all charges, there was no doubt in my mind that the “fix” was in before he even pronounced Michael Brelo not guilty on all counts.
When the camera showed Brelo’s nonchalance, with his yawning/boredom and not showing any remorse, it was evident that Judge John O’Donnell, a White American would not find this White American cop guilty of “manslaughter” in the deaths of two unarmed Black African Americans (male and female) and Michael Brelo already knew it.
An all-White American male jury found both Roy Bryant and J. W. Milam innocent of the kidnapping and lynching death of Emmett Till, a 14- year old Black African American. After the verdict, Look Magazine paid both Bryant and Milam $4,000.00 to publicly brag about how they lynched Emmitt Till as an example to other Northern Black African Americans visiting their families in the South to remain “in their place.” “Their place” was to submissively remain under the feet of all White American people in general and all White American men in particular – or else.
Now sixty years (60) later, Michael Brelo will be able to sell his story of how he jumped onto the hood of Brother Russell’s car and fired fifteen (15) rounds through the windshield and into the bodies of Brother Timothy Russell and Sister Malissa Williams. Of the 137 shots fired by thirteen cops that night, Brelo fired 49 of them.
This lynching was a direct result of being a Black African American male in White Racist America. Allegedly, a White American cop stopped Brother Russell because he was in the “wrong” place – America, and for “Driving While Black.”
Supposedly, Brother Russell drove away, losing the White American male cop, speeding past a police station, resulting in his Malibu backfiring. Officer Vasile Nan failed to distinguish between a car backfiring and a gunshot, so in his fear and panic-stricken state, he broadcasted on his police radio that he was being shot at by a “drive-by.”
This resulted in sixty-two (62) police cars and one hundred (100) cops (37% of Cleveland’s cops) chasing Brother Timothy and Sister Malissa for twenty-two (22) miles, shooting at them along the way. The cops falsely reported over the radio that Brother Timothy was shooting at them and Sister Malissa was reloading for him.
The cops’ lengthy search along the pursuit route and in the car failed to produce any evidence of a gun, bullets or a weapon of any kind.
If a prudent person were in that situation, they would readily recognize that the cops intended to lynch/execute them; therefore, they would not stop either. Judge O’Donnell based his not guilty verdict on the fact that Brother Timothy’s car was still in gear and capable of inflicting harm to the cops, so Brelo acted heroically by protecting his fellow officers by firing the final fifteen (15) rounds into their bodies.
Duh! Brother Timothy was shot twenty-three (23) times and Sister Malissa was shot twenty-four (24) times, so how were they able to take the car out of gear? By their own admission, armed White American male cops are so “fearful” of Black African American males in general, that any movement, dead or alive justifies them to continue using “deadly force.”
Brother Timothy’s sister, Michelle, said of Brelo, “He’s not going to dodge this just because he was acquitted. God will have the final say.” She is right; her god did have the final say, using the mouth of Judge John O’Donnell.
I intended to use the small “g” in the spelling of Sister Michelle’s god because her god is on the side of White Americans and not Black African Americans.
I have a very simple and guaranteed solution that will immediately cause America’s cops to stop murdering/lynching unarmed Black African Americans.
First, Black African Americans must read and learn our glorious African history.
Then we must read and learn White peoples’ inglorious, violent, barbaric and genocidal history.
Next, we must stop raping, robbing, assaulting and murdering other Black African Americans, while allowing the White American murderers of Black African Americans to remain unscathed.
Finally, Black African Americans must realize that we have totally embraced the god of our enslavers and have become more religious than our oppressors have. Only then can we throw off our mental and physical shackles of bondage.
