    The "I remember posts were
    intended to be a relief from
    the stress and tension that one
    will experience when looking at the plight of our sisters and brothers,
    Globally.

    However I remember back in the 60s when we had a pretty much unilateral vibe of outrage,
    about atrocities and human indignations perpetrated on folks of Afria descent.

    But COINTELPRO learned and adapted to take a different approach with us.
    Instead of being antagonistic, they devised various and numerous distractions,and pseudo-entertainments,
    that would keep us off focus of the physical expresions of white supreacy
    and embrace a form of nihilism as a pseudo culture

    The gangsta rap fad and the Me- Myself and I pseudo churchianity movements,
    were created by the oligarchy to keep any form or concept of Black unity off the table

    BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY THESE ACTIONS SURGICALY REMOVED A GREAT DEAL OF OUR INATE :TRADITIONAL AFRICAN" ALTRUSIM

    that had survived the middle passage and the indoctrination by torture.


    Since the case of Elanor Bumpers
    ,we with our facebook, twitter, and texting have not devised
    a cogent "wake up" outrage call, or a real effective strategy

    nationally, legally!,(wich is what they dont expect) to deal with police murder ops, or the executions of
    men and women with physical and forensic as well as witness
    evidence of innocence.

    Our lack of collective outrage, gives the oligarchy the precedence
    to continue this crap,
    here in the US,in Africa and the Caribbean.

    They count on our collective complacency in hopes that our youth when reaching adult will say

    about the Troy Davis' then, or the African racial genocides then, or the
    Carribean landlord hit squads then

    "Oh that's the way things are, aint nothing ayone can do about it!!!"

    From Cynthia Mckenney

    Outside and inside the State Senate, Leroy Johnson practiced the art of leadership and engaged in the fight for justice. He produced solid results for a people who were hungry for justice.
    Who among our elected officials today exercises the art of leadership in an engaged struggle for justice? Sadly, the numbers are way too small. It is more expedient to exchange silence for merely "being there," in the end exercising no leadership at all and becoming a spectator to power in abandonment of those who need the effective use of power the most. The art of the struggle has veritably been abandoned for merely occupying a seat at the table when the purpose of the struggle for the seat at the table was to empower the struggle for justice. The only reason we send people to occupy that seat is to leverage the power of the community where power is exercised, on behalf of those who need it the most.
    As I was commiserating over the Troy Davis situation with a former member of the Georgia Legislature who rose to the highest possible position within that body for his party, he lamented that for all of his years in the Legislature, he had not introduced a single death penalty bill. I quickly interjected that he was so busy putting out other fires and sticking his fingers in all the holes of the leaky dikes and schooling his colleagues on the effective use of the power of their elected positions that he couldn't do everything. It will be interesting to see what legislative actions his former colleagues will initiate in the face of this clear act of barbarism by my state.
    Occupying these "seats at the table" is important. Engaging in the struggle for justice is important. And contrary to what many would have us believe, leadership is important. That's why so much effort is spent on co-opting or marginalizing the leaders of conscience that we do have and preventing authentic representatives of our values to occupy those seats at the table.
    Therefore, more is required of us. We must hone the skill of discernment. We must not give our vote to just anybody to occupy these positions of power. We must not allow "posers" to represent us. Posers are those who wear the jackets of authority, who are put in positions of power by us, but who do not engage in the artful use of that power on our behalf. Discerning who is friend and who is poser has been difficult. But, is being made more possible by the arrogance now of those who do not have the interests of the people at heart. They seem not to care that their "neanderthal" is showing. But we can look at them and clearly see that they ain't us. Their actions are a clue that they do not share our values.
    Unfortunately, posers exist all around us: and in the media, too. The job now of people of conscience is to make sure that we don't enable these posers by our own supportive behavior. My friend reminded me that Leroy Johnson, alone in the Georgia State Senate, was more powerful in the 1960s than are the 55 Black members of the Georgia Legislature now. We need to stop and think about that.
    More is less? What role have we all had to play in such a circumstance? Is our leadership more of a reflection of who we are than we have acknowledged? What can we do differently in order to get a better result?
    Abu Ghraib has its antecedents right here in the United States. The violence sponsored by the United States abroad has its origins inside the United States. As the United States and NATO drop bombs on unsubmitting African people in Libya, the United States kills an innocent Black man in Georgia. There is more to come unless we affirmatively take steps to stop it. Republican voters cheered at the prospects of more executions at a recent Presidential debate. In a recent article, Africom brags on its lessons learned from Libya:

    "The command had to define what effects it needed, and what specific targets would contribute to achieving those effects – a precise endeavor, Ham said. If attacking a communications node, planners must ask themselves what does that particular node do? How does it connect to other nodes? What’s the right munition to use? What’s the likelihood of collateral damage? What’s the right time of day to hit it? What’s the right delivery platform? And finally, how to synchronize attacks." http://www.defense.gov/news/newsarticle.aspx?id=65344
    “That level of detail and precision … was not something the command had practiced to the degree that we were required to do in Odyssey Dawn,” Ham said. . . . If we were to launch a humanitarian operation, how do we do so effectively with air traffic control, airfield management, those kind of activities?” he said.
    The United States has to craft those practices with African partners, he added.
    U.S. allies in Libya are as barbaric as their sponsors. Despite youtube's efforts to dissuade it from being seen, please watch this video sent to me from France:
