PUBLIC STATEMENT on UMAR JOHNSON
April 18, 2016 by FDFF.org
April 18, 2016
To whom it may concern:
The family of Frederick Douglass has received numerous inquiries about Umar Johnson questioning his relationship to Frederick Douglass. There have also been questions about the legitimacy of his PhD and handling of the donations he’s received for a school he is promoting. We can tell you with 100% certainty that he is not a descendant of Frederick Douglass.
With that being said, Mr. Johnson is very careful not to bill himself as a “descendant,” but he doesn’t correct people when they refer to him in this way. He calls himself a “blood relative” which is a nebulous reference designed to make people think he is a descendant. We have researched his explanation of being a “blood relative” to the Great Abolitionist. Some of the information he provides is accurate, but an extremely important piece of his explanation, with regard to a documented relative of Frederick Douglass, is false. The information he recites correctly is from the public record so his knowledge of our family ancestry is far from definitive proof.
The official Douglass family tree is held in the archives at the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site in Washington, DC. Mr. Johnson’s name is not on it.

Doesn't matter. No Phd wanna be Dr. Shoemake is still a cheap race hustler....
why is there such a level of hostility toward Dr Umar ????
Well, because the man is a fraud and his shrill rhetoric is the same as any virulent white supremacist. He is the black version of Rhicard Spencer....
ok, where have you gone in on the spencer person ????
for the record.. I clocked Umar out of the gate as a hustler years ago..
and for me.. there's no hostility.. there is only a lifetime of being awake. I recognize hustlers immediately. I recognize the sources of the information that he's disseminating as his own original thoughts. I've around too long to fall for the okie-doke.
"ok, where have you gone in on the spencer person ????"
Not sure what you mean. But for the record, Richard Spencer is the face of the Alt-Right and an avowed arrogant white nationalist. His virulent racism stands against everything I believe. As I stated before -I don't give free passes to racists! It does not matter what your ethnicity or race is. No one has given an intelligent and compelling argument of why the world is a better place because of racism. E'nuff said......
ok, who is it that you can support today ????
so you feel umar is a racist ???? can any black man be a racist ???
