    The news talks about someone not paying a 75 dollar a year fee and losing their home as corporatocracy-fire-stoppers, formerly known as firemen,

    looked on and watched the house burn

    is this a message to us?

    When the Savings and loans Scandal; happened one could see that "they" were practicing on their own elderly before they got to us!

    and the subprime, racist tactics of mortgage ripoffs, s
    tated by the nations top lawyers as actually illegal contracts,
    as well as regentrification by eminent domain, as what has been occuring in Harlem NYC near
    City College, show an agenda to take black owned real property by any means necessary

    How many Black families have 75$ when someone knocks at the door or when there is an emergency?

    but it's not just about the money.

    In another state it mite be about certain insurance clauses,
    that they can watch ones life savings destroyed,
    and some developer come in or try to swindle one for the remaining land

    We know what hapened after Black Wall street

    Firefighters Watch As Home Burns: Gene Cranick's House Destroyed In Tennessee Over $75 Fee (VIDEO)
    The Huffington Post | Adam J. Rose First Posted: 10- 5-10 12:12 AM | Updated: 10- 5-10 07:31 AM

    A smoldering rage may be all that remains after Gene Cranick's home burned to the ground last week in Obion County, Tennessee.

    Firefighters are usually the bold "veni, vidi, vici" sort, but those from neighboring South Fulton could only say "veni, vidi." They came. They watched. That's it.

    Cranick lives outside of the city limits and he admits that he forgot to pay a $75 annual service fee that would have provided him with fire protection.

    Firefighters wouldn't lift a finger, much less the hoses that might have saved the house.

    The fire reportedly started in some barrels outside. As the flames crept closer to the home, Cranick says he offered to pay whatever it would take. The plea fell on deaf ears. Hours later, the home was gone.

    So were three dogs and a cat.

    "They coulda' been saved if they put water on it. But they didn't do it," Cranick told MSNBC.

    The South Fulton firefighters did show up and managed to save a neighbor's field. The neighbor had paid the fee. But they would provide no heroics for the Cranicks. A local news report shows them climbing back on their trucks, flames still dancing over what was once the family's home.

    Well, FIRST, every Black family in this TN county better make sure that $75 fee gets paid. And THEN, they can't work toward getting this "ordinance" or whatever changed through legal means.

    But, FIRST, they betta pay that $75.

    This "fire emergency fee" is ANNUAL. It is NOT expected to be paid when the firemen GET THERE but IN ADVANCE for the YEAR.

    The service fee is $75 a YEAR....That comes to $6.25 a MONTH.

    So, again, the Black families in this TN county need to make sure they have paid this $75.

    THEN, they should work together as a COMMUNITY to get a FIRE DEPARTMENT in their own COUNTY so they don't have to continue to rely on the CITY's fire department and be CHARGED FOR IT.

    Why not.
    The police stand around and watch us get killed (or just do it their self) just for kicks. The money is just to justify it to their peers.

    Then we should unify in the community and follow sister Cherry Blossoms advice for an imperative towards Black nationalism and prepare Our own, and take this as an indication of what may come next
