Homegoing Celebration for Leroy Sharpe Tarboro NC

My condolences goes out to the families of Leroy Sharpe Tarboro, NC.

I was shocked to read about the passing of my friend Leroy. I ran into him at the administration building in Tarboro earlier this year and he was encouraging me to continue to do what I do. He looked healthy so this was a shocker because I had not heard he had been sick.

Romney bought $5k of food for people to “donate” back to him at phony “hurricane” rally

But the last-minute nature of the call for donations left some in the campaign concerned that they would end up with an empty truck. So the night before the event, campaign aides went to a local Wal Mart and spent $5,000 on granola bars, canned food, and diapers to put on display while they waited for donations to come in, according to one staffer. (The campaign confirmed that it “did donate supplies to the relief effort,” but would not specify how much it spent.) (More)

Boston Globe endorses Barack Obama over former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney

The Boston Globe’s editorial board this morning said President Obama deserves a second term, opting not to back the Republican nominee and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.

Since its first presidential endorsement – for Hubert Humphrey in 1968 – the Globe’s editorial page has always supported the Democrat running for president. But it has also never denied its endorsement to a home-state candidate, supporting Michael Dukakis in 1988 and John Kerry in 2004. (More)

Lies of Plutocracy: Exploding Five Myths that Dehumanize the Poor – truthout

Response: Damn this is good! Now run tell this!

If you believe that poverty is the domain of the comfortably poor, black, unemployed, unmotivated and uneducated among us, you have been sadly misled. Prepare to be astonished by numbers that tell a very different story.

You’re in the grocery store checkout aisle. Time to cash out. You pull out your food-stamp EBT card. You’re overcome with a sense shame one feels for being broke in a world that measures self-worth according to net-worth. (More)

Ann Romney Said She Didn’t Know Why Women Wanted To Make The Same Money As Men

Well damn for the white women back in the day the white male was the bread winner so the wives could do minor work and they could live good. However the Black woman had to work as hard as the Black man in order for both of them to make it. Hell ain’t you heard about a Black woman having a baby and working in the fields up to the time to have the baby and went right back to work immediately after having the baby.

The sad part is some Black folks will agree with Ann but that means they are just ignant because they don’t understand or they are in denial.

Damn I be glad when the election is over because I am so sick and tired of ignant damn conversations from so-called educated folks. Well!

Holding, Malone face off in redrawn 13th District – Rocky Mount Telegram

Response: If you live in Pinetops, Macclesfield, some of Tarboro, some of Edgecombe/Nash Counties you are now in the 13th District and Congressman G.K. Butterfield is no longer your Congressman. We now live in a new created district due to the Republicans redistricting maps. I support Democrat Charles Malone.

During this election, some Twin Counties residents will help determine the candidate who will serve in the newly-configured 13th Congressional District.

Because of redistricting, parts of Nash and Edgecombe counties now are included in the 13th District.

Republican George Holding, a former U.S. Attorney, and Democrat Charles Malone, a state employee, are competing for the position. Both candidates are from Raleigh. (More)

Open Letter to Rev. Franklin Graham, CEO of Billy Graham Evangelistic Association

NC NAACP Letterhead

 

THE FOLLOWING IS AN OPEN LETTER TO REV.  FRANKLIN GRAHAM ADDRESSING MORAL VALUES AND GRAHAM’S POLITICAL AD.  THIS LETTER WILL POST ONLINE (www.naacpnc.org) LATER THIS EVENING (10/29/12) ALLOWING OTHER SUPPORTIVE RELIGIOUS  LEADERS TO SIGN AND SUPPORT IN ADDITION TO THOSE LISTED.

 

 AN OPEN LETTER TO REV. FRANKLIN GRAHAM

REGARDING VALUES AND VOTING

 

 

October 29, 2012

 

Rev. Franklin Graham

President and CEO

Billy Graham Evangelical Association

1 Billy Graham Parkway

Charlotte, NC 28201

 

Dear Rev. Graham:

 

            We write you today as a brother in the faith and as a member of God’s human family. This letter comes to you in Christian love but also with great hurt and concern. Earlier this year your acts as the President/CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelical Association compelled us to ask you to examine yourself and to cease arousing unwarranted suspicion regarding President Barack Obama’s Christian faith.

 

            In February 2012, you expressed your doubts about his faith on national television, partly because he had tried to engage Muslim nations and leaders in a dialogue about the world’s future. North Carolina evangelicals and prophetic ministers, steeped in the African American church, asked you to cease arousing unwarranted suspicion about the President’s faith. At that time a group of Christian clergy and scholars from North Carolina wrote to you in private as the scriptures first demands. Among many things in our pastoral and prophetic critique we said to you, March 5, 2012:

 

"…It seems to us that your apology is helpful and yet narrow and almost grudging.  And we feel a reluctant confidence that you and many other Evangelicals will continue to disparage President Obama and the faith of other Christians through a critique that pushes him and many of us outside the fundamental tenets of the Christian faith.   

 

It is not your inclination to criticize that concerns us.  Like you, we believe that our Christian faith calls us to critique the powers and policies of our society through the lens of Christian ethics. Many of the things for which you and other Evangelicals have assailed the President for doing are not anti-Christian; they are at the very heart of Christ’s work among us!

 

President Obama’s faith was formed in a prophetic Christian tradition that certainly resonates with our own traditions, experiences and Scriptural readings.  In Dreams from My Father, he writes of the first stirrings of his Christian faith: "…at the foot of that cross… I imagined the stories of ordinary black people merging with the stories of David and Goliath, Moses and Pharoah, the Christians in the lion’s den, Ezekiel’s field of dry bones.  Those stories of survival and freedom and hope became our story, my story… at once unique and universal, black and more than black…

 

If you would extend to your brothers and sisters in Christ the benefit of the doubt for a moment, does it surprise you that we experience these constant attacks on our president’s faith not just as assaults on President Obama but as an assault on the fundamental Christian faith that has helped to shape the moral conscience of our nation?  This faith tradition has historically helped America address issues such as slavery, lynching, segregation and discrimination, economic injustice, and caring for the material needs of the poor.

 

…The biblical prophets and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ viewed injustice, poverty and the absence of social consciousness as the greatest moral concern of the faith…"

You were apparently unmoved by our criticism. Last week, as the CEO of the non-profit, tax-exempt Billy Graham Evangelical Association, you used the Association’s funds to buy expensive full page ads in major newspapers in North Carolina and other parts of the country to further arouse unwarranted suspicion about the President’s personal faith. The paid advertisement contained transparent insinuations about "support for the nation of Israel", the "sanctity of life" and the "biblical definition of marriage," with a photo of your father and his signature. Your ad implied he wrote the text of what was a clear endorsement of the President’s opponent because he was more of a Christian than the President. The political endorsement was particularly ironic, since the non-profit you preside over has, until a couple of weeks ago, questioned whether Mormonism is part of the Christian faith.

 

            We are intrigued by the challenge of Dr. William C. Martin, of Rice University, who wrote a glowing biography about your father called "A Prophet with Honor: The Billy Graham Story" when he saw copies of the ad you authorized over your Association’s name. Dr. Martin said that your father, "after realizing that he’d been cynically manipulated by Richard Nixon, . . . resisted joining the Religious Right… he [Billy Graham] warned religious leaders ‘to be wary of exercising political influence’ lest they lose their spiritual impact." Dr. Martin suggested that you "steered" your father to make this statement, since Billy Graham’s interest in homosexuality was "never central" to his ministry. To test his suspicion, he suggested a small group of reporters meet with Billy Graham to hear directly his comments on the assertions made in the statement you authorized to be published.

 

            If Billy Graham has indeed changed, and has decided to join the Religious Right in cynically promoting these divisive issues for our Christian faith community, which wants to restore the closed, exclusive society of the past, historians should hear it from him first hand, since his legacy is one of openness and inclusivity. We were brought up on stories of Billy Graham tearing down the ropes of Jim Crow at his crusade, and his invitation to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to preach with him at a crusade. It is a radical departure for Billy Graham to now exclude from the souls he might reach in his ministry for a clearly partisan and theologically narrow critique.

 

Although you told the media "If you want to think I’m behind all of it, I don’t care," we respectfully ask you to reconsider this flippant remark. Your father’s historical legacy is at stake.

 

We have major differences with those who today call themselves ‘conservatives,’ while resisting and ignoring so much of God’s character. They say so much about what God says so little, and so little about what God says so much. True bibliocentric conservatism would not do this.

 

            This sort of cherry-picking easy parts of Christianity is not a new practice. During slavery there were those who claimed deep adherence to scripture in their support of slavery and racism. They pulled out a few texts to build a whole system of injustice, while ignoring the multiplicity of texts that condemned human oppression. Though claiming to be Biblicists, they ignored as much of the Bible as they could, as though a half-reading of the Bible justified slavery.

 

During the Civil Rights Movement there were many who found ways to dismiss the biblical call for justice and righteousness. Many of them were so liberal in their dispelling of God’s demands that they criticized Dr. King; they said he was not acting like a preacher. And he had to remind them that if you read and accept the whole counsel of the tribune of God…you must challenge the evils of racism, classism (poverty) and militarism.

 

We must remind ourselves to hold on to a faith that will not shrink and declare that with God some things never change. When Micah an 8th century B.C. prophet from the village of Moresheth in Judah was called, he raised the question that everyone must ask when there are attempts to hi-jack the moral and righteous standards of our faith to serve the petty schemes of men. ‘What doth the Lord require?’ Micah asked. What never changes, from age to age with God? What is always God’s primary focus for his people? What transcends our labels? Our political alliances? Our situational ethics? What is greater than who has the political majority at any moment?  Do justice, Love mercy! Walk humbly before your God!

           

            When Jesus came he said in Luke’s gospel: "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised and to declare the acceptable year of the Lord"

 

            We hear so much clamoring about values especially from you and our colleagues who claim to conserve the tenets of the Christian faith and moral values. Why is that which you seek to conserve so narrow. You would do well to remember that in the deepest traditions of our faith, of our values, of our sense of morality and righteousness, is the requirement that we as a society as a government remember that our responsibility to the poor, vulnerable, those on the margins is at the top of God’s agenda.

 

            Lest we be hypocritical and potentially heretical, lest we lead political leaders to be guilty of perjury when they place their hands on the Bible to be sworn into public office, should we not make it clear that the sacred text of both the Hebrew faith and the Christian faith contains more than 300 verses on the issue of justice and poverty, God’s deep concern for both as the priority of Gods agenda.

            Except for the sin of worshipping false gods of money, greed, and selfishness, there is no other sin more denounced by our holy scriptures than social injustice and refusing to make the playing field fair for all.  Justice, love, grace and forgiveness are at the heart of our holy faith. Have you not heard or read the following:

 

Deuteronomy 15:7. "If there is a poor man among you, one of your brothers, in any of the towns of the land which the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart, nor close your hand to your poor brother;"

 

Proverbs 31:8. [Commandment to kings.] "Open your mouth for the dumb, for the rights of all the unfortunate. Open your mouth, judge righteously, and defend the rights of the afflicted and needy."

 

Isaiah 10:1-3. "Woe to those who enact evil statutes, and to those who continually record unjust decisions, so as to deprive the needy of justice, and rob the poor of My people of their rights… Now what will you do in the day of punishment, and in the devastation which will come from afar?"

 

Isaiah 58. "Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? 
Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter – when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear;"

 

James 5:1-6. "Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries which are coming upon you. Your riches have rotted and your garments have become moth-eaten. …Behold, the pay of the laborers who mowed your fields, thar you have withheld, cries out against you;"

 

Matthew 25:35-36. "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,  I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."

 

            These texts are so primary in our faith tradition and yet secondary in your critique and call for a focus on moral values.  Excluding this focus makes any claim to concerns for Christian values hollow at best and hypocritical and heretical at worst. Not only in your call for Americans to vote their values did you not maintain a focus on the centerpieces of the scriptures you did not focus on even the centerpiece of our nation’s priorities.

 

            Do you not remember what Jonathan Winthrop said years ago about this nation’s moral focus in his "City on a Hill Sermon"?

 

Now the only way to avoid this shipwreck, and to provide for our posterity, is to follow the counsel of Micah, to do justly, to love mercy, to walk humbly with our God. For this end, we must be knit together, in this work, as one man. We must entertain each other in brotherly affection. We must be willing to abridge ourselves of our superfluities, for the supply of others’ necessities. We must uphold a familiar commerce together in all meekness, gentleness, patience and liberality. We must delight in each other; make others’ conditions our own; rejoice together, mourn together, labor and suffer together, always having before our eyes our commission and community in the work, as members of the same body. So shall we keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace. The Lord will be our God, and delight to dwell among us, as His own people, and will command a blessing upon us in all our ways, so that we shall see much more of His wisdom, power, goodness and truth, than formerly we have been acquainted with… For we must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill.

 

            Furthermore, are not the values we hold dear expressed clearly in the preamble of this nation’s Constitution?

 

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

 

            It seems strange that the notions of justice, unity, tranquility and even welfare are lifted up as values in our founding documents, but are often spoken of despairingly by those who claim to represent conservative Christian values. The selective and narrow nature of your "values" critique when held in the light of our deepest traditions and weighed in the balance seem deeply suspect of a true concern for values and more like a partisan push for a political purpose. The NAACP and many of our faith partners have joined together and listed the following critical issues that face this nation regardless of political party: 1) economic sustainability – addressing systemic poverty, full employment, living wages and labor rights, 2) educational equality for all students and children, 3) healthcare for all and ensuring access to Medicare and Medicaid, 4) addressing the continuing inequalities in the criminal justice system for black, brown and poor white people, 5) protecting, defending and expanding voting rights for all people.

 

            We believe your father is rooted in a much broader and deeper perspective more akin to the grander traditions of our faith and moral values of our nation. We believe you have gone astray, seduced by the sirens of money and power. Again, in Christian love, we renew our challenge to you. If we are wrong, and your father in his latter years has changed his view of a more democratic, a more inclusive, a more loving world, let him tell us directly. Moreover, join us in ensuring that the values expressed on behalf of the Christian faith are more representative of the essential issue of justice rather than the wedge issues of a particular political agenda attempting to consecrate itself with the covering of Christian faith.

 

Yours in Christ,

Martin Luther King Jr. Republican Billboard Courts Controversy in Texas As Election Looms (VIDEO)

Response: A moment in education didn’t know that. I had heard Dr. King was a Republican but never heard he was a Registered Democrat when he died.

Hovering above Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue in Dallas, a provocative billboard makes a controversial claim in black and red block letters: “Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican. VOTE REPUBLICAN!”

It’s a claim, and a voter registration tactic, that has been used before, despite a decidedly mixed reactions from community members who see it. (More)

Obama: "No Act of Terror Will Go Unpunished"

Mitt Romney

President Barack Obama

Reparations and the Presidential Elections By William Reed Columnist

“Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.” – Frederick Douglass

Most Whites living in America today deny any tie to slavery.  Most of the nation’s Blacks do too.

The issue of “reparations for slavery” is America’s most divisive topic. But, it’s an area to which Blacks would gladly concede their “just inheritance” for the Obamas to be First Family again. Our ancestors’ forced free labor totals $100 trillion, but the majority of African Americans seem willing to forgive the debt to not have Obama rejected by the Americans. In that mode, Blacks overwhelmingly “got Barack’s back” in the 2012 presidential election. Just to be able to say that “a Black man is president of the United States [POTUS]” makes them giddy.

However, the question remains, how does it benefit Blacks to buy into a system and a culture that’s never worked for us, and continues traditions that perpetuate the effects of institutional slavery? Is Barry Black enough for our total loyalty?  Or, has he totally eliminated any chance for justice for Blacks? When the subject of reparations came up for Candidate Obama in 2008, he didn’t favor Black reparations, saying: "the best reparations we can provide are good schools in the inner city and jobs for people who are unemployed.”  Today, Obama will still carry Black voters despite high African American unemployment. 

Instead of demanding more in terms of law and legislation, Blacks have developed a peculiar capability of separating their votes – instead of holding the president accountable for any real improvement concerning our abysmal condition. While Barry has scurried away from references to race, the effects of slavery and Jim Crow reverberate in the glaring disparities of wealth between Whites and Blacks. Median household wealth among Blacks is under a quarter of that of Whites and 80 percent of African-American children begin their adult lives without assets.

It appears that America’s Blacks don’t see, or experience, the difference between political “symbolism” and “substance.”  The same government that Blacks are so set on having Obama lead again; has from the onset, helped to create “the racial wealth gap” and has specifically designed and kept Black wealth significantly lower than White wealth.

During slavery, the elite slaveholders lived in “The Big House” overlooking the plantation, now Blacks drool over the idea of the Obamas living in “The White House” – in a mansion that was built by forced slave labor. The concept of “Blacks living in the White House” totally diminishes the debt that descendants of slaves are owed.

Let’s be real, Obama doesn’t spend his days in the Oval Office “watching out” for us. Sadly, no one else at the White House does either. The economic gap between Blacks and Whites has increased under Obama. Blacks’ unemployment, poverty and foreclosures rates are at their highest level in a decade. With all its racist policies, why aren’t Black Americans demanding that this nation support honest and direct dialogue on race and racism and its manifestations and consequences?

Obama has assimilated past most Blacks, but should do more – not because he’s Black but because of the sufferings Blacks have endured past and present. Black people have every right to make demands on Obama – because they gave him a greater percentage of their votes than any other group; and his 44th U.S. presidency is owed to them. Like any president, he should be constantly pressured to put the issue of racial injustice front and center.

To better our future in America, Blacks will have to “demand better” from all local and national politicians.

In response:

First of all I find myself in a discussion about Reparations quite often. I was added to a group called Mainstreaming Reparations until I was recently kicked out of the group. I was challenging my friend in my neighboring county Pitt County as he brought up Reparations almost daily beginning right before the May Primary. He has made it seems as if “Our” Black President is the problem when it comes to the discussion of Reparations in Washington DC.

I ask the question why in the hell would “Our” current President be wasting his time on bringing Reparations to the floor during his 1st term when he didn’t campaign on it but most of all when the white Republicans and a few white Democrats have been fighting him on issues that affect Black, brown, white and other folks as a whole such as Obamacare and etc. By now everyone ought to know that the Republicans are in the majority in Washington and anyone in their right minds know damn well they don’t want to hear no Black man asking for no Reparations.

I have stressed that I have been following groups such as NCOBRA who has been fighting for Reparations over the years. I am for Reparations however my main concern is to get “Our” current President re-elected not only because he is a Black man but he is capable of being President and has demonstrated such. Hell I have voted for the white man all of these years so why in the hell is it a problem that I have the option to vote for a Black man especially since they have taught in school that the Black man can be President. I am not apologetic for voting for a Black President.

My problem is there has not been much education on the local level as it relates to Reparations and I have asked Jeff Savage to call some meetings and I would attend since it seems to be a top priority for him and with that I trust that he has done much research and has some resources that could come in and help educate Black folks. But it appears he wants to only educate folks on Facebook.

I am having a problem with Black folks who think that just because we have a Black President we should be able to rule the world in 4 years. Not! Damn it is our fault that “Our” current President has had to fight those racist ass Republicans because Black folks and folks who are concerned about all people didn’t get out and vote for Democrats in 2010 so therefore “Our” current President did not have control in Washington. I don’t understand how folks don’t get it. And to let them tell it “Our” current President has the majority for 2 years what a damn lie only several months.

Damn the Republicans cut 700,000 jobs in November, 780,000 in December 2008 and then another 700,000 in January of 2009 before “Our” current President took the oath of office. But damn over 5.2 million jobs has been added since he has been in office and folks have the audacity to talk about the unemployment is at an all time low of 7.8%. Damn funny they don’t want to talk about unemployment much today.

How many folks have ever held “Our” Presidents before this Black President accountable for anything. Why is it some folks act as if “Our” current President is the very 1st President instead of the 1st Black President. But damn some folks would say he ain’t the first Black because his mother is white. Well damn all of these years I have heard if one had any Black blood in them they were automatically Black.

So damn the problem I have is that the rules continue to change according to who is in the game. Look at how the rules have changed since President Barack Obama has been in office. But some folks want to make it appear that “Our” President has all power.

Now getting down to the real nitty gritty I want to know why Jeff Savage has not called a meeting and invited “Our” Republican and Democratic representatives from NC to the table to talk to them about Reparations. Hell he has long time House Rep. Walter B. Jones who lives in Pitt County and others across the state who he could call in to send the message to “Our” current President but it is easy to get on Facebook and make it appear that he is doing something.

Well!

Pittsburgh Post Gazette Endorses President Barack Obama – Post Gazette

Barack Obama for Re-election

The economy is slowly recovering from the 2008 meltdown, and the country could suffer another recession if the wrong policies take hold. The United States is embroiled in unstable regions that could easily explode into full-blown disaster. An ideological assault from the right has started to undermine the vital health reform law passed in 2010. Those forces are eroding women’s access to health care, and their right to control their lives. Nearly 50 years after passage of the Civil Rights Act, all Americans’ rights are cheapened by the right wing’s determination to deny marriage benefits to a selected group of us. Astonishingly, even the very right to vote is being challenged. (More)
