NAACP occupies Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions’ Mobile office
Quote:More than a dozen NAACP members occupied the Mobile office of Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions Tuesday, calling for him to turn down his controversial nomination to become the next U.S. Attorney General.
“Our objective is certainly to stop his nomination,” Bernard Simelton, president of the Alabama State Conference of the NAACP, told the Daily News from Sessions’ office.
“But our objective is also to get out the word to people in power to stop it,” he said.

RE: NAACP occupies Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions’ Mobile office
Is that the best they can do - try to imitate Martin Luther King? Fifty years after the Civil Rights Movement, and still, the best that black people can do is organize a march across a bridge to tie-up traffic to get the attention of white people in the hopes that they will generate a solution. Fifty years after the Civil Rights Movement, and the affirmative action of black lawyers into the government and corporate environments, and the best that an over-paid ungrateful pampered educated athlete can do is stage a lame contest of the national anthem in an attempt to draw the attention of white people to write the corrective laws – he is not trying to get the attention of a black person to do it, is he? Fifty years after the Civil Rights Movement and the advancement of black people into headline media positions, and the best that a black national political commentator can opine is that there is a good chance that black people will be enslaved again if a white man is elected to the presidency; because the black president could not explain to black people that we are approaching a robot served society. Fifty years after the Civil Rights Movement and the acceptance of leading roles for black actors, a self-indulgent pompous black minstrel at the end of his curtain call confronts the Vice-president elect, and justifies his action claiming that he is starting the conversation about racial stratification; and there is no black person who can explain to him that we are a few of years into that conversation, already; and that it is just not going anywhere, because black people cannot figure out that they are deluded from the truth – black people do not understand what freedom is and do not trust each other, and subsequently do not know how to organize community.

Fifty years ago, black people could make the claim that they were not educated to write the Civil Rights Act. And since that time, Nelson Mandela died knowing that educated black people would rather cry "oppression,” and "racism," in America, than help him organize a nation for the liberation of black people. If there were any black people who helped Mandela write the constitution for South Africa, then black people would know their names. The world leaders, President Clinton, and the racist white congress members, at the time, set the whole thing up for Mandela and black people; and the result was the failure that the racists were expecting – nobody is threatening to abandon the United States for refuge in South Africa, because it is still a dismal place for black people. Have you toured Haiti, yet??? Except for black Americans, the whole world knows the conditions of these black populations, and the whole world knows that black people would rather live on American welfare than help these desperate areas.

Of course, they need you to join their cause. What should they do to get you to do it?

Freedom is servitude to justice and intellectual honesty.

Obviously your reputation score suggests people strongly disagree with you but I'm going to give you some credit. A lot of what you're saying is hard to disagree with if you look at it honestly. I don't know if you consider black people naturally inferior or the product of a very unfortunate history. I'm also not sure if this is your point but I'm going to say that black people must start taking a critical look at their communities and start tackling their problems themselves because time and time again even whites with the best intentions have taken them down the paved road to hell.

RE: NAACP occupies Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions’ Mobile office
I like to believe that black people are the victims of an unfortunate history, but I have been seeing some YouTube video of Africa, and there are people living in primitive communities. I recognize impressive black people, like President Obama, Sheriff Clarke, and there have been some other black police supervisors who have conducted impressive press conferences, Representative Cummings, and Eric Holder is impressive - I do not think he was criticizing white people as being cowards about discussing race. Like President Obama recently suggested that we, as a nation, haven't gotten past slavery and Jim Crow laws; he too, was not talking about white people - black people are the one's who cannot get past slavery and Jim Crow, and they cannot figure it out that he was talking to them. And this incident, here with the NAACP, has to be embarrassing for him.

Recently, I have been writing black 'leaders' explaining to them that we need a new constitution and that they should try to get black lawyers to begin working on reordering their municipal charters, bbut I think they realize they do not have the legal talent.

We have that here in the United States, in a number of ways, but that's in no way a fair characterization of Africa.

This is Africa:

Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo

Lagos, Nigeria
[Image: nigeria-lagos-city090510081102.jpg]

(And Cairo, and a number of other quite-modern cities and nations.)

We don't see these images because we prefer "poverty porn" of the backwater areas of the very large and heavily jungled continent. We don't see the same, even though it happens, about the tribes throughout Central and South America. We're not shown the real, only the titillating.

When it begins to warp our perception, it may be time to look again.

RE: NAACP occupies Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions’ Mobile office
But I'll bet that you are misrepresenting the evolution of the municipalities. Yes, that is what I thought:

Quote:Nairobi was founded in 1899 by the colonial authorities in British East Africa, as a rail depot on the Uganda Railway.[3] The town quickly grew to replace Machakos as the capital of Kenya in 1907. After independence in 1963, Nairobi became the capital of the Republic of Kenya.[4] During Kenya's colonial period, the city became a centre for the colony's coffee, tea and sisal industry.[5] The city lies on the River Athi in the southern part of the country, and has an elevation of 1,795 metres (5,889 ft) above sea level.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nairobi

Quote:The remainder of modern-day Nigeria was seized in 1887, and when the Colony and Protectorate of Nigeria was established in 1914, Lagos was declared its capital, continuing as such after the country's independence from Britain in 1960.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lagos

Quote:The immense debt resulting from Isma'il's projects provided a pretext for increasing European control, which culminated with the British invasion in 1882.[26] The city's economic centre quickly moved west toward the Nile, away from the historic Islamic Cairo section and toward the contemporary, European-style areas built by Isma'il.[51][52] Europeans accounted for five percent of Cairo's population at the end of the 19th century, by which point they held most top governmental positions.[53]

The British occupation was intended to be temporary, but it lasted well into the 20th century. Nationalists staged large-scale demonstrations in Cairo in 1919,[26] five years after Egypt had been declared a British protectorate.[54] Nevertheless, while this led to Egypt's independence in 1922, British troops remained in the country until 1956. During this time, urban Cairo, spurred by new bridges and transport links, continued to expand to include the upscale neighbourhoods of Garden City, Zamalek, and Heliopolis.[55] Between 1882 and 1937, the population of Cairo more than tripled—from 347,000 to 1.3 million[56]—and its area increased from 10 to 163 square kilometres (4 to 63 sq mi).[57]

The city was devastated during the 1952 riots known as the Cairo Fire or Black Saturday, which saw the destruction of nearly 700 shops, movie theatres, casinos and hotels in Downtown Cairo.[58] The British departed Cairo following the Egyptian Revolution of 1952, but the city's rapid growth showed no signs of abating. Seeking to accommodate the increasing population, President Gamal Abdel Nasser redeveloped Midan Tahrir and the Nile Corniche, and improved the city's network of bridges and highways.[59] Meanwhile, additional controls of the Nile fostered development within Gezira Island and along the city's waterfront. The metropolis began to encroach on the fertile Nile Delta, prompting the government to build desert satellite towns and devise incentives for city-dwellers to move to them.[60]

So... you're saying that they only have cities, instead of villages, because of European colonization of Africa?

Yes. And further, I am suggesting that blacks cannot organize competent representational government, and have to revert to dictatorships, under the guise of republics. Otherwise, their republics are made up of white people.

But let's try to get back to the subject of the NAACP staging a sit-in, rather that generating corrective laws - why can't they do it???
