Remember: You have the Power – the Vote. Cherish it, Protect it, and Use it – Methodically, Strategically and Powerfully. ~ Ralph Hogges

Know and understand the power you have. We have overcome the racist use of Poll Taxes and the Literacy Test used by white racists and segregationists to prevent us from voting. You have the Power; you have the vote. Use your anger and rage to organize and mobilize the most massive and powerful voting effort in American history in the November 2020 presidential election. ~ Ralph Hogges

960x0Greetings fellow members of our Writers Group,
As your President of the Writers Group of South Florida, I have a responsibility, an obligation, to speak up and speak out about the police officers’ malicious and outrageous killings of our young black men in America.
2695176

Dr. Ralph Hogges

I was born and raised in the State of Georgia, during the era of the racist segregationist Governor Lester “Ax Handle” Maddox, and educated in the State of Alabama at Tuskegee Institute, during the era of the racist segregationist Governor George Wallace whose motto was “Segregation now! Segregation tomorrow! Segregation forever!”

I was a product of the sixties’ civil rights movement, led by the words of civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer who declared, “I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.” The movements’ urgent, firm and absolute resolve was “Ain’t gonna let nobody turn us around” as we demanded freedom, justice, and equality.
So, now, in this era of 2020, let me share with you what this killing of our young black men is all about. It’s not very complicated.
  1. First and foremost, it is about Power and Control.
  2. White Power and Control are used to Protect and Promote White Privilege. It is enforced by police officers.
  3. Their greatest fear is the changing racial demographics in the United States wherein black and brown people are growing numerically substantially more and faster than the white population. As black and brown people become the majority voters, mostly Democrats, fear, hate, and violence against them escalates. It is intentional, methodical, and strategic.
  4. If you are a bible reading person, you should remember wherein the leader put out the order to “Kill the boys.” Obviously, if you kill the boys, you cut off and stop the births. So, there you have it. That’s the death sentence of young black men in America, today.
  5. So, how do you justify the killing of young black men? It’s simple, you promote suspicion and fear of them. You can disagree with my statement but the fact is that many current laws protect the killers.
****************************************************************
To my brothers and sisters throughout the United States, I understand your anger and rage about the vicious killings of George Floyd and many others. I admire and support your peaceful protests. Given what we should have learned over the years, I offer these suggestions:
  1. Don’t let the terrorist groups and white supremacists exploit and derail your peaceful protests.
  2. Racists in America are not going to volunteer to give up their privileges.
  3. Just because people know better, it does not mean that they are going to do better. If their minds are already made up, they are not going to change.
  4. Know and understand the power you have. We have overcome the racist use of Poll Taxes and the Literacy Test used by white racists and segregationists to prevent us from voting. You have the Power; you have the vote. Use your anger and rage to organize and mobilize the most massive and powerful voting effort in American history in the November 2020 presidential election.
  5. Collectively, we have the power to win the White House and a majority in the U.S. Senate and maintain control of the U.S. House of Representatives.
  6. The question is: Are you going to use that voting power?
  7. Remember: You have the Power to Control and Eliminate the ravages of racism and discrimination in the United States and create, mandate, and enforce Equal Rights and Equal Opportunities for all in America.
  8. The time is now. Use your Power.

Here’s the lesson

In the news regarding the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis Police Officer:

Black Man Down: “I Can’t Breathe!”

By Rosalee Martin (5-29-2020)

800-1“I Can’t Breathe!”

“I Can’t Breathe!”

Choked with knee in his neck

‘Mama, Mama”

Last words said by George Floyd

No more breath;

Dead!

Dead at the knee of a police officer;

Keeper of law.

Ha! Ha!

Keeper of white supremacy

George Floyd was black

Walking while black

Alleged crime

Passing a counterfeit $20

Sentenced to death;

No criminal charge,

No criminal hearing,

No criminal trial by jury.

Take matters in own hand

With knee on his neck, cutting off his windpipe

Lynching 2020 style

With other lynchers looking on

Wearing police uniforms, carrying guns

No help for the lynchee, George

In Minnesota,

In the USA,

In families, and

In my family,

My black grandsons can be next!

Police lynching of black men,

Not in 1900th century

With lynchers wearing white capes and hoods

But today wearing uniforms

As officers of the law to protect our cities,

Our lives;

Knee on neck–7 minutes

Only long enough for death to occur

“I Can’t Breathe!”

‘Get up’ words of angry officer

“I Can’t Breathe!”

Then don’t breathe!

Go lifeless . . .die!

One less nigger!

One less black man!

NEXT!!!

‘Shoot the looter” says the president

NEXT . . .

But he didn’t loot;

He peacefully let police handcuff him,

Not knowing he would be dead in 20 minutes.

Only crime

His Black birthday suit:

Can’t change color,

Can’t change history,

Can’t change white hate!

One more nigger dead!

NEXT!

“I Can’t Breathe!”

Your knee is on my neck

Blocking my windpipe

Those with Covid-19 have days. . .

May be placed on ventilator

But not George Floyd

7 minutes are sucked out of him

“I Can’t Breathe!”

Echoes what happened to Eric Garner

Six years ago

Choked by police

“I Can’t Breathe!”

Black death. . .

Oh well

Black Life Matters;

Does it?

My son’s black life matter;

Does it?

My grandsons’ black life matters,

But when?

Not when being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Not when being in your apartment when shot by police

Not when jogging on the road and citizens kill you

Not when you are born black—no other crime

Did their lives’ matter?

“We Can’t Breathe!”

Poison of racism permeates the air

Sucked into our collective lungs

“We Can’t Breathe!”

Poor healthcare system keeps us sick

“We Can’t Breathe!”

Poverty sucks out our hopes and dreams

“We Can’t Breathe!”

Educational divide

They in class . . . we in prison

“We Can’t Breathe!”

Last hired, first fired

Unless an essential worker—frontline exposure

“We Can’t Breathe!”

Your knee is on our necks!

Your arms are choking us!

And the president says ‘shoot the looters!’

“We Can’t Breathe!”

God blew the breath of life in us

You suck it out

Are you now god?

“We Can’t Breathe!”

Black Man Down: “I Can’t Breathe!”

Fighting Economic Disparity

This message was in my email, today. It outlines some solutions to the economic disparity experienced by people of color in the USA, during the pandemic.
Dear All People’s Day friends,
Wednesday night Elliott and I were on an NAACP call that included Nancy Pelosi and other congressional officials who are trying to help in this time of need.  We learned that people of color are the largest group impacted by the Coronavirus.  Many are the most exposed because their jobs are considered essential and they won’t get paid if they don’t go to work.  Jim Crow laws hadn’t allowed them to save funds for a rainy day and stay home plus many people of color have compromised health issues because of prejudice against them in the health system.  I have heard many stories about this neglect throughout the years but no one has amassed scientific data.  Thus, people of color have the highest death rate from the Coronavirus in the US.
In the spirit of All People’s Day inclusion, here is a way you can help them and everyone in this time of need.
  • Call Governor Ron DeSantis 1(850) 717-9337
  • Senator Marco Rubio (561) 775-3360
  • Senator Rick Scott (202) 224-5274
  • Congresswoman Lois Frankel (561) 998-9045
Ask them to support the following issues:
THESE ARE ISSUES THAT WILL BE HELPFUL IN OUR BATTLE AGAINST THE CORONAVIRUS
  1. Expand Medicaid throughout the country
  2. Since people of color have the highest death rate keep track of racial demographics about people with the virus so zip codes can pinpoint testing sites.  Also, make public transportation to the sites available.
  3. Increase the amount of Food Stamps.
  4. In the next cash infusion: a) Include small businesses owned by people of color that have not been able to get the stimulus loans because they cannot afford to use a bank that requires a certain balance. b) Other institutions like Credit Unions should be approved for distributing the money. c) 501c3 nonprofits and churches should be treated like small businesses for the loans. If 75% is given to workers the business loans are forgiven.
  5. Vote by mail for all states due to the Coronavirus
PEACE & LOVE,
Susan Berkowitz-Schwartz

Trouble in River City

Update: March 26, 2020

This is a published letter from a doctor in New York named Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, to the Israeli Ministry of Health, who has had 100% success in treating Covid-19 patients with the combination of Hydroxychloroquine, Azithromycin, and Zinc. He has followed the studies I have shared with you coming from China, Korea, and France. He has added zinc to the mix and his protocol is for 5 days:
 
1. Hydroxychloroquine 200 mg (1 pill 2x per day)
2. Azithromycin 500 mg (1x per day)
3. Zinc sulfate 220 mg (1x per day)
 
Zinc stops viral replication. Hydroxychloroquine helps Zinc enter cells and Azithromycin stops secondary bacterial infections common in viral pneumonia.
Again, for protection against the virus, I highly recommend anti-malaria and antiviral herbs in liquid form such as Neem, Olive Leaf Extract, and Artemisia Annua.
However, if you or a loved one gets admitted to the hospital for Covid-19, please share this letter and the studies I have posted (Chinese and French) so that you will have a tangible treatment path of Hydroxychloroquine + Azithromycin + Zinc that is working for many other patients.

Update: March 20, 2020

[To Sharon]
 
I’ve looked further at Kings County, Washington where Kirkland is located which was ground zero for the virus in the USA. This information further supports an interconnected relationship between this hotspot and 3 others across the globe. Just as Wuhan was a test city for self-driving cars, and had activated 5G just prior to the outbreak there, so was Kirkland !!
 
Dr. Klinghardt said there were 5G towers everywhere there. Whereas the death rate reported from China is less than 2% (and probably is far less) the lethal rate in Kirkland was quite high with 6 of the first 10 cases dying. Klinghardt says that the health care facility where these patients were either treated or confined at was one of the first in the USA to be fully wired for 5G.
 
Moscow, Russia has a very large percentage of the cases reported in that country. Even though they lag behind the USA in 5G rollout, it seems very likely that 5G was implemented in Moscow.
 
My contact in Northern Italy sent me an article from December 2019, outlining the rollout of 5G in the cities which soon became the hotspots of CV for that country as well. She also tells me that many elderly took flu shots there in 2019 and there were reports of meningitis, so many elderly also took ANOTHER vaccination for meningitis in that region.
 
Now, Doctor Klinghardt goes on to say that if someone takes 2,000 milligrams of Vitamin C daily their body soon reaches a level that is as good as the intravenous Vitamin C treatments successfully being used in some hospitals in China. He further says they used an herb against the SARS epidemic of over a decade ago which was very useful. I had not heard of it before, but it’s called Andrographis and is available from a European company called Ki Science (in 3 anti-viral products) as well as a few other sources. He said if he had the money for only one thing, he would go first with the Andrographis and secondly the Vitamin C. He also uses a spray of HOCl (Hydrochloros ??), but I’m going to use Tea Tree Oil drops in water since this virus lasts on surfaces for days, which is longer than any virus in history. (Klinghardt spray on house doorknobs when he returns from public outings).
 
Here is some further info from Kings County, WA, USA — Public Health is reporting the official case count in King County as 693. In addition, 4 new deaths are reported, bringing the total of confirmed deaths in King County to 60. COVID-19 is spreading in King County. Public Health expects the case count to double every 5 to 7 days.
 

Posted on Facebook: Here is some apparent inside info you won’t hear on the news:

This morning, at 4:30AM, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was served a criminal indictment by the US for corporate & financial crimes. Media owners were instructed to historically brainwash everyone that PM has Corona Virus with his wife and that they won’t be leaving their house for a while.

Tom Hanks was arrested 48hrs ago for Pedophilia and he is currently being kept in a Hotel room in Australia refusing to fly back to the USA. Next celebrity arrests will be Celion Dion, Madonna, Charley Barkley, Kevin Spacey – all will claim Coronavirus infections.

Italy’s airports have been completely shut down as over 80 of the Vatican and financial officials have been served the same criminal indictments for financial crime, pedophilia, child trafficking, and sex abuse.

The United Emirates have completed mass arrests of their own Royal Family & affiliates.

Convicted Hollywood rapist Harvey Weinstein agreed to a deal in exchange for his testimony against hundreds of top Hollywood celebrities and their involvement in the drug business, pedophilia, and child trafficking. Instead of 55-year sentence, he only received a 23-year sentence. In exchange, he provided testimonies against some of the biggest & most powerful names including Prince Andrew of UK, former president Bill Clinton, former vice president Joe Biden, Tom Hanks, Oprah, Ellen DeGenerous, Quentin Tarantino, Charlie Sheen, Bob Saget, Kevin Spacey, John Travolta, Steven Spielberg, Podesta, NXIVM and PIZZAGATE sex trafficking clubs, and hundreds of more who all were directly involved with Jeffrey Epstein. In exchange for Jeffrey Epstein’s testimony, he was allowed to make a deal and have his suicide in prison faked.

CEOs of some major world corporations have been indicted/arrested and some forced to resign all in the last 30-60 days, such as CEO of NBA, Harley Davidson, Gates Foundation, Intel, McDonald’s, Cesar Awards, Vatican Chief of Police, Disney..etc Approximately 700-800 more resignations are coming in the next 3 months.

Lab-created Corona Virus is a cover-up for mass mandatory vaccination agenda, as well a covert US Intelligence operation that the world has ever seen and this mass 158,000 arrest operation will remove & capture the biggest evil & corrupted politicians, celebrities and CEOs including global elites and bankers such as George Soros, UN officials, founders of GRETA INC.

Trump will win the 2020 elections and arrests of former US presidents will occur in early 2021. All major arrests will be covered by media as an accident or conspiracy theory. All arrested individuals will be given “Rommel Death” meaning choice between suicide/accidental death in return for assurances that his/her reputation will remain intact, or face a criminal trial that would result in public disgrace.

Some top religious leaders will be arrested or forced to resign, some will get “Sick” suddenly. The Vatican will be the first and the Pope will be removed in 2020. Production of human extracted Adrenochrome will be revealed and Hollywood and the Vatican will be directly responsible for it.

Coming up there will be a 2-month complete shut down of the worlds most common operations such as schools, stock exchange, some Banks, airports, shipping, travel, events, galas, expos, sport games, sport championships, music award ceremonies, NBA/NHL/Baseball games, ship cruises including food shortage and staged electricity power loss. Gas prices will go down, food costs will go up, insurance will go up, Gold/silver stocks will fall, many corporations will either bankrupt or take a significant financial loss such as what’s about to happen to Air Canada, Disney and Coca Cola. H5N1 bird flu will be intentionally released this week out of China.

Welcome to the greater awakening. Global reset. NWO.

Who owns Jazz?

[Excerpts from The Social Effects of Jazz by Zola Philipp]

JIMHALL-2“In response to the statement that whites stole the music, Jim Hall says, “I’ve always felt that the music started out as black but that it’s as much mine now as anyone else’s. I haven’t stolen the music from anybody—I just bring something different to it” (Gerard, 1998, p. 90). Hall is indeed acknowledging that blacks invented jazz, but he does not feel that whites have stolen it, even if whites imitated the various jazz styles created by blacks and became wealthy as a result.”

Hall’s statement above is true. Jazz music is the next commodity used by white men to accrue wealth since cotton. Their entitlement means that they do not have to steal something to make it theirs. They have a right to it and that’s all there is to it.

Meanwhile, “Malcolm X said that whites simply replicate what they heard in the past, whereas blacks could spontaneously invent. He stated “Black musicians at a jam session with white musicians—a whole lot of difference. The white musician can jam with sheet music in front of him. But that black musician picks up his horn and blows sounds he never thought of before. He improvises, he creates (Gerard, 1998, p. 78).”

“Mackey (1992) believed that there was the containment of black mobility on the political level and that the social and economic progress blacks might have accumulated because of their artistic innovation was blocked by whites.”

Although jazz music permeates the planet in clubs and festivals, “Jazz became so commercialized that the industry was less dependent on black innovation, but rather produced a music that was lacking the essence of jazz—its improvisation.” Kofsky (1998) “believed that this refusal of whites to credit blacks is because they refused to equate anything valuable with African Americans. According to Miles Davis, this is the case because “The white man likes to win everything. White people like to see other white people win and they can’t win when it comes to jazz because black people created this” (Gerard, 1998, p.16).

REX STEWARTWhile whites in the jazz music industry got rich, black musicians did not reap equal benefits. The industry caused a great deal of exploitation and discrimination by whites against blacks. Rex Stewart said, “Where the control is, the money is. Do you see any of us running any record companies, booking agencies, radio stations, music magazines?” (Kofsky, 1998, p. 19).

Policing the Police

police1
The Guardian, 12/13/2019
 
Ever since he was a teenager, Joshua Doggrell has believed that the former slave-holding states of the American south should secede from the United States. When he was a freshman in college at the University of Alabama in 1995, Doggrell discovered a group whose worldview chimed with his – the League of the South.
The League believes that white southern culture is in danger of extinction from forces such as religious pluralism, homosexuality, and interracial coupling. In 2006, when he was 29 years old, he applied to be a police officer in Anniston, Alabama. On his police application, Doggrell wrote that he was a member of the League. Shortly after, he was hired.
During nearly a decade on the police force, Doggrell was a vocal advocate for the League, working to recruit fellow officers to the group. He encouraged his colleagues to attend the League’s monthly meetings. On Facebook, he posted neo-Confederate material, including a photo of an early leader of the Ku Klux Klan, and wrote that he was “against egalitarianism in all forms”.
Often, he refused to be in the room when the department recited the pledge of allegiance in front of the American flag. Although it is unusual for a police officer to be so open about his involvement in an extremist organization, for decades, anti-government and white-supremacist groups have been attempting to recruit police officers into their ranks. “It is something a lot of folks are overlooking,” says Vida B Johnson, an assistant professor of law at Georgetown University.
“Police forces are becoming more interested in talking about implicit bias – the unconscious, racial biases we carry with us as Americans. But people aren’t really addressing the explicit biases that are present on police forces.” According to Johnson’s research, there have been at least 100 different scandals, in more than 40 different states, involving police officers who have sent racist emails and text messages, or made racist comments on social media, since the 1990s.
A recent investigation by the Center for Investigative Reporting found that hundreds of active-duty and retired law enforcement officers from around the country were members of confederate, anti-government and anti-Islam groups on Facebook. But there is no official record of officers who are tied to white supremacists or other extremist groups because, in the US, there is no federal policy for screening or monitoring the country’s 800,000+ law enforcement officers for extremist views. The 18,000 or so police departments across the country are largely left to police themselves.
While not every police officer who is tied to a white supremacist group will necessarily act out their beliefs, violently, the presence of even a single radicalized officer can terrorize a community. “Even if the number of officers is numerically small, because of the intense risks posed of having a ticking time bomb like that in a department, that’s a big deal,” said Brian Levin, a former NYPD officer who directs the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism in California.
In a number of cases, ideologically radicalized police officers have gone on to commit extreme forms of violence. In 2006, a leaked report from the FBI’s counterterrorism division warned that white supremacists have spent decades trying to “infiltrate law enforcement communities or recruit law enforcement personnel.”
The document, first reported on by The Intercept, noted that the term “ghost skins” had gained currency among white supremacists, to describe extremists who “avoid overt displays of their beliefs to blend into society and covertly advance white supremacist causes”. But experts have difficulty gauging the number of white supremacists within law enforcement. Some give ballpark figures in the low hundreds, while others can’t give an estimate at all.

  5. We need clear, effective talking points and a clear plan of action. My suggestions for all of these things are HERE.
  6. You can already donate money to whoever ends up as Trump’s Democratic opponent. That can be done HERE.
  7. Florida is a MUST-HAVE state, and Puerto Rican voters are crucial. Here’s what needs doing right

The Words We Speak

Critical listening and critical thinking are the key aspects of effective communication. That entails listening and thinking on a deeper level. Most people are thinking about what their response will be when engaged in a discussion, rather than focusing on what the speaker is saying.

talking thinkingEffective communication requires the listener to hear what the other person is saying before they respond. Interrupting the speaker cuts off the flow of thought. Therefore, people should avoid interrupting the speaker. The height of respect is to acknowledge the speaker, hear what the speaker is conveying, and then respond, once the speaker has concluded.

couple-talking
The hardest part of communication is to remain non-judgemental of the speaker and to acknowledge that there may be more than one perspective on a subject or issue. Few people are willing to accept the viewpoints of others without an argument. Although debating an issue is healthy, arguing from a specific viewpoint may not yield a healthy result. Words start wars. But most people use words unwisely, without thinking about the damage words can do. This is evident in relationships between couples, parents and children, friends and associates, and co-workers.

Donald-Trump-The-lying-lie-detector

In today’s political arena, it is clear that people are not cognizant of the damage their words do in their communities and in the world. People are not taught about the power of words. They should learn to use them frugally, ethically, and for the highest good.

When our country’s leadership cares less about lying about their policies, actions, and private endeavors, we the people are in deep trouble because “Follow the leader” is in effect and young people pick up the bad habits of those in charge. This is evident not only in politics but in religion, education, and economics.

Lying is cheating at its lowest level. When young people learn that those in high places get away with cheating, stealing, and lying, they follow suit and the fabric of society suffers. Good people speaking well is a goal that more of us should aspire to.

Midterm Election Wrap-Up

White-WomenContemplate this: What the midterm election showed was:

  1. A large group of eligible voters is uninformed about the importance of their right to vote.
  2. There is a criminal faction among Republicans to disenfranchise voters who may vote Democratic.
  3. White people love white privilege and will do anything to keep it.
  4. Hispanic people do not understand that they are not considered to be white.
  5. We must find a way to wrench the power out of the hands of the White Supremacist Patriarchy that is heavily supported by white women who benefit in ways that people of color will never know or understand.
  6. Only white women can end racism.

Why Did 53 Percent of White Women Voters Go for Donald Trump?

To understand the “white woman story,” we must first acknowledge that white supremacy remains the prevailing force in electoral politics. 

These elections were not aberrations; white women have voted Republican for the better part of the last three decades. Women of color, black women especially, are responsible for the so-called gender gap in electoral politics and form the core of the progressive base.

Some white women face voting pressure from their more-conservative husbands, a dynamic Hillary Clinton acknowledged in her analysis of her 2016 election loss.

Investments in mobilizing newly activated white women must be the frosting atop a cake of much deeper investment in year-round organizing in communities of color – those best poised to lead and drive real progressive change.

Unfortunately, many black people can’t see the forest for the trees because this midterm election is a win for black America because when black people took the house of representatives, we went from being on the menu to [having] a seat at the table.

On November 5, black people were sitting strapped down in the electric chair with the hood over [their] heads, waiting for November 6, when white America would pull the switch to literally legislate black people back into 1856 chattel slavery in real time. But,  once black people took the house of representatives, then, reprieve, good news, the electric chair blew a fuse.

For our victory, instead of talking about black people like we are not in the room, Trump [said] he regrets his heavy tone and will work on taking the bass out of his voice when talking to or about us.

In a war, there are battles. We have not won the war but we won this battle and, in victory, we won breathing room and a 2-year window to re-organize, re-construct, re-formulate, refortify, rejuvenate, regroup and rebuild without being under constant political gunfire from the other side. So, don’t waste it.

Then there is this . . . Who are the 8% of Black men and 18% of Black women that voted RED? Why did they vote that way? Do 46% of Latino men think they are white men? Do 38% of Latino women think they are white? Is any of this relevant?
