Man when I first came to this site I was a little ignorant about the situation in cincinatti, now after reading a bunch I've come to a bit clearer conclusion... NO ONE wants to TAKE BLAME.. Its alwase someone elses fault, I'm sorry but I dont feal for the black community a whole heck of alot here... Why? All I can see is blacks pointing fingers, giving excuses, and blaming someone else. Look the Police didnt raise your children to get 15 tickets and then run from cops down dark ally's its the parents that failed here. Now there might be some obsticales and things that might be a little ruffer on some blacks, but I would say most of it is brought on to themselves by themselves. The kids are a direct representation of the parents and how they rais their children. How can I back that claim up? BECAUSE MY KID WOULDNT BE CAUGHT DEAD IN AN ALLY RUNNING FROM COPS! UNLESS MY FOOT BROKE OFF IN HIS BUTT AND I DIED! and my kid sure as hell wouldnt have 15 outstanding tickets. Not to mention you wouldnt find my kid rioting, breaking windows, hurting other people etc.. at least NOT WITHOUT MY FOOT AGAIN BEING BROKE OFF IN HIS BUTT AND ME DEAD. Everyone is given the same opportunity in life to better ones self, and to do good not bad. Quit blaming whites, your heritage, the police, the community, the Rev., or anyone else, and look in the freakin mirror. If everyone had common respect and dignity for ones self (not for everyone else or for another race) but for your self, things wouldnt be like they are. You need to worry what your doing to better yourself, community and the things around you. Quit looking at everyone else and blaming them. As for the person that is against celebration, partying, getting "looped"... Thats your own opinion, just because you want to work as a collective, or have such "GREAT" meaning in life doesnt mean everyone else has to follow your belief's.. Not everyone has to have the great collective purpose in life. As long as one has respect for others, themselves, and do nothing to bother another person what should you care. Whites, Blacks, Liquor, party's, knives, guns, dynomite, TNT, bombs, These things dont kill or hurt people, people hurt people. Lay the blame were it should be, on the people and individuals involved. Sounds to me like cincinatti needs stronger laws in dealing with neglegent parents, the parents need to be held responsible for the up-bringing of there children. Where the hell was timothy's parents when he had 15 outstanding warrants, running down a dark ally's? all that didnt happen in one night of him getting shot. Oh but moms mad now isnt she. I feal for Timothy not having a proper raising, giving him a better chance at making better decisions in life.

It is still amazing to the point that some whites still come up with the line that "we need to get along" And that these ideas we have will further divide the races. Well we were divided when our Black African Ancestors were stolen away from the continent. The only so called race relations conferences we should be haveing is for Black African people and Black African people to sit at the table and have these discussions between each other on how to better work together. Whites have come up with this silly notion of we must love one another. There is not enough white people in the world to go around to have a minuscule amount of intergration. I do not see them going to the any other ethnicity speaking such foolishness. The best thing that they could do to improve race relations between blacks and whites is to pay for the hundrens of years that our Black African Fore Parents worked for nothing to build a institutionalized mechanism that white skin has a privilege to. It is funny when we read history during the 1900's. We have whites coming out in the thousands after churc on sunday to view a lynching at their "pic-nics" Then at the same period you have a back to Africa movement by Marcus Garvey which whites sabotaged to prevent from being successful. It seems to me that whites need to sit down with other whites to get a clear focus on their agenda and stop sending mixed signals.Hotep

Just discovered your site when I was trying to find one of my teachers,Dr. Wade Nobles. And, sure enough, the search engine took me to the well-written review of his book on African Psychology. I need his e-mail address as well as those of Dr. Frances Cress Wellsing, Dr. Roslyn Jeffries, Dr. Naim Akbar, Dr. Asa Hilliard, Dr. Jewel Pookrum for a BIG proposal I'm working on for Oprah's Fall Season. Anyone with this information, please e-mail me back ASAP. As the Mother of all the Earth's people, it's time we assumed our rightful place of leadership in the Great Global Shift we're experiencing by activating our particular melanated insight, answering our ancient calling, and initiating our unique contribution to humanity. If not us, who? If not now, then when???

NO ONE IS BLAMING WHITE PEOPLE OR ANY OTHER RACE FOR THIS WORLD'S HISTORY OF SLAVERY AND DISCRIMINATION AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE. THE PROBLEM IS THAT WHITE PEOPLE STILL ARE BENEFITNG FROM THIS PAST DISCRIMINATION!ALSO,THE BLACK RACE HAS BEEN MISEDUCATED AND PROGRAMED WITH SELF HATE HISTORICALLY. WE MUST STOP LOOKING AT OURSELVES FROM A WHITE EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVE AND RETURN TO A AFROCENTRIC PERSPECTIVE. WHEN WE DO THIS WE CAN BEGAN TO REBUILD OUR COMMUNITES AND HAVE THE RESPECT THAT WE WANT. IF WE DONT RESPECT OURSELVES, OTHERS WILL NOT RESPECT US!

I feel to end police brutality any person brought into police custody injured should get an automatic police report on the incident. At this time if you are hurt you must ask for help and it is not recorded unless you complain. There needs to be a system that automatically asks why did you get hurt and who did it. Also give this to the cheif of police and let him pay the bill out of his pocket. Then he will ask them not to do it.

My dream is to see black and white people simply get along. As a child, I was taught that police could get away with shooting any one, not just black people. I'm not saying I agree with this, just that this is new to me.My two children never paid attention to white and black differences until the Cincinnati riots. I always told them that we were all created in God's image. My oldest daughter was starting to question this when she saw innocent white people being pulled from their cars and beaten up on a news brief. We have spoken of this topic alot, and talked about both sides. She now realizes there are bad people in both races.The only way this race problem can be solved is to communicate with each other with an open mind. We may not like what we hear though.I am white, however there is native american blood on three branches of my family. They may have been slaves, I don't know. My husband's family is Dutch, from both sides. They came here after the civil war. My boss is Polish from both sides. His family came here after the civil war. We had nothing to do with slavery. Would any one of us had been pulled from our cars because we are white? We are all Americans.Very few of my white friends even knew that the race problem was this bad in Cincinnati. After the shooting of three innocent people with bean bag guns by police, I question this now.I heard a man on the news say we can stop calling him black. Is he from Africa? I have black friends that are from other Countries. I am called white and I'm kind of pinkish. Some things we need to take seriously, but we do need to loosen up. Not everyone is out to get everyone.Missy L., Northern KentuckyWe need to take some situations

The st Louis Chapter shut down both east and west bound traffic on Hwy 70 during the construction that was going on that did not have any Black, African, African - Americans working on the project as it proceeded through the black neighbor hoods. Traffic remained stopped until a hour or so delay was up.The Missouri State highway dept. reached a agreement, more Black people were hired. The Governor had his favorite negro preacher to come to our meetings but we told him and his Lord Jesus Savior that we did not desire their attendance. We also obtained a training center, this was necessary due to the fact that the European controled unions were not accepting anyone other than their kind. Now we will have yet another school for training opening up this fall to make two. May I note also that while in Atlanta attending a conference I was pleased to say there are very few european police officers on beat in the city. This city has a warm atmosphere. No wonder it was a great location for the Olympic games. Everything was peaceful except for the terrorist european bombings that killed some incidence attendees one of which was a beautiful Black African American. This site is so wonderful some people can't stomach it.Hotep

LRS :) Nobody cares about the downtown festivals. Nobody cares about the Olympics. As if people NEED an excuse to get together, get loaded and act like complete boobs. All people do is celebrate, crank their music (as IF the rest of us care to hear it) and get piss drunk. Is this what being Americans is all about? Hmm? Celebrate EVERYTHING, fix NOTHING. Billions of things that require the attention of the collective human race but guess what? Youre all out buying beer and liquor, smoking "blunts", hooked on drugs, hanging out in bars, going to nudie clubs, flashing what you have as if a million other people dont have the same stuff. Everybody is Soooo proud. And why? I couldnt even begin to guess. I dont know. Why is anybody proud of anything in this world? I mean, look around you! ALL of you, reguardless of race or gender or sexual preference or age or religion or walk of life are collectively so screwed up that none of you are paying attention to the real issues here, and likely didnt see them before all this went down. Racial prejudice, I mean racist white AND!!!!! black people have been messing it all up for the rest of us for so long now, now look at where we are. Are the issues EVER anything that has to do with Timothy Thomas's family or Steven Roach and his family? NO! Theyre not. The jerks in the street smashing and looting and the brutish white AND!!!! black cops on the street who are getting meaner because now they work 12 hours shifts and guess who they take it out on? The racist people? NO! Everybody. And why? Theyre human. And human may as well be an insult now a days, look at what it means. Who REALLY deserves to have EVERYTHING taken away here? Racist people. Thats who. If youre racist you are beneath my contempt and you deserve to die and or have your life taken away, not Timothy Thomas, not Steven Roach. You.

As someone involved professionally and personally on the issues of urban development in the Cincinnati area, I have come to truly despise Rev. Lynch and everything he stands for - which is the division of this community. For anyone to even mention Rev. Lynch in the same sentence as Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. is disgusting, MLK stood for racial harmony and peace - two things Rev. Lynch has destroyed through his actions. The death of Timothy Thomas, unquestionably, was a horrible loss to his family and friends, and he did not deserve to die for his actions. However, it was not a tragedy because Mr. Thomas had the opportunity to go to court to explain his offenses, he chose not to and subsequently ran from the police down a dark alley. Mr. Thomas' family, and Rev. Lynch, need to take responsibility for his actions, once they do, they will find a community much more willing to work on racial issues. When this whole episode began, I viewed Rev. Lynch as a potential true leader for not only Black Cincinnatians, but for the entire community. Today, the sight and sound of Rev. Lynch makes me ill - he is a horrible, divisive man who is only involved with this case to improve his own personal standing in the community. In closing, I ask the United Front to discontinue their politics of division and racism and truly lead this community back to greatness - for all of its citizens.

Ignoring the idiotic remarks of William, let us work TOGETHER in a BILATERAL fashion rather than unilateral finger pointing. Issues run deeper than the police department and kids running/shooting at cops. Why is there a 75% drop out rate amongst black youths in Cincinnati Public High Schools? As a previous guest wrote...KNOWLEDGE IS POWER! The average person without a high school degree earns $1,600 per MONTH. That will not help a person advance in life. The same day Timothy Thomas was shot, a young black lady MURDERED her two children. Where was Rev. Lynch, Rev. Sharpton and the NAACP to support the community with that? Two nights ago, three black men were shot by another black man. WHERE is the outrage from the United Black Front regarding this?!?!!? WE NEED TO EDUCATE PEOPLE, BLACK AND WHITE, NOT POLARIZE THEM BY DESTROYING EVENTS, TURNING PEOPLE AWAY FROM CINCINNATI. CANCELLING JAMMIN' ON MAIN, DISRUPTING CONVENTIONS HELPS NO ONE BUT REV. LYNCH'S PERSONAL AGENDA. Who gets hurt financially? Street vendors, small business owners, manual labor who set up and take down the event booths. Many of these people are black. Rev. Lynch his hitting the pocketbook of the black business community. And in this economic downturn, people CANNOT AFFORD this! WHERE is the Black Chamber of Commerce?! They need to step up to the plate and help create summer jobs, internships, opportunities. They need to preach the good word about EDUCATION and KNOWLEDGE which can lead to success. Instead, everyone is taking a back seat to the DIVISIVE REV. LYNCH! A MAN OF GOD does NOT lie, spin stories his own way, gain power for himself, and subborn crimes. He is only turning people AWAY instead of BRINGING people together. When he had his sit in at the 5th and Vine Bar, what did that do besides garner him press? When Rev. King had a sit in, he was directly addressing someone violating his rights. 5th and Vine doesn't do that! When Rev. King boycotted the buses, it was directly addressing a problem that the bus system was perpetuating. When Rev. Lynch disrupted the Chamber of Commerce Convention....it did nothing but give him press. WHY TURN OFF BUSINESSES WHICH ARE OWNED BY BLACKS, AND WHO EMPLOY BLACKS?!!? SOMEONE PLEASE PROVIDE REAL LEADERSHIP IN CINCINNATI, and drown out the voice of one trying to give noteriety to himself by dividing a city!

I realize this is coming from an outsider, with even a bit of ignorance perhaps. However after reading the headlines, I find it really hard to have any sympathy for what happened to Timothy Thomas. Running from police with 15 warrants, I would think does justify the officer being concerned for his own safety and maybe shooting first and asking questions later... Had it been the police officer that was shot, I suspect the "rioters" would have had a party instead. Getting shot is part of the game of being a criminal and running from the law. This is not a racial matter in anyway, accept for the fact that if it were any other color of skin you would not have had hundreds of "anti-racial" organizations running to defend a criminal that was killed in the line of being a criminal. Organizations that are created to defend one race, and that use any situation like this one to say the rest of the world is against us, are the racists in my mind. These organizations use anything to get in the headlines, even if that means turning a criminal into an anti-racial icon. What kind of word does this send to young African Americans? There is nothing being mentioned that getting shot or going to prison is part of being a criminal. Instead your telling your children watch your backs cause them white boys are out to get ya… Its like saying, run faster from them police or they might racially profile you as a criminal. Or should have the Police Officer first called Timothy Thomas and asked him, hey were coming to pick you up do you have a gun? Or maybe Timothy should have first stated, I’m un-armed but I’m going to run from you now so please don’t assume I as a fleeing criminal could have a gun. Ask your selves the question... If you were chasing a criminal (white or black) with 15 warrants (misdemeanors or not), and the person turned while running, would you wait to see if he had a gun, possibly shooting you first? Oh hell no, and if you did you wouldn’t be a cop for long. You'd quickly turn into a corpse. Thanks my 2 Cents.

The BUF in Cincinnati is demanding respect but at the same time, refuses to condemn the violence and criminal activity taking place in the city. They keep refering to the "murder" of 15 blacks in our city. How in good conscious can your organization support such statements. These were criminals, most of them armed and a few of which actually shot a police officer prior to being killed. If you want respect, then stand up and condemn the violence, stand up and condemn the criminals. Until you do, you will NEVER get any respect from the community, and in fact, you are only assuring what it is you say your problems are. Sounds to me like that is exactly what you want. Must be that you need perceived race problems to stay in business and act as though you are somebody with power. As far as I am concerned, the 15 black criminals killed in Cincinnati is only a GOOD START. I don't care if you are white or black, criminals and rioters must be stopped. You have to face the fact however, that the vast majority of violent criminals in Cincinnati are black. What a surprise. Look in the mirror. You will see what a racist realy looks like.

Hi, My name is John and I am a former medic in Hampton, Virginia. Presently I work in North Carolina. Like every profession in this country we have good and bad people. Do you know the difference? It could cost you your life. Some people in my profession really don't care about you or your welfare. I have seen them steal money off of dead bodies of our loved ones. I have seen them not act when they should have, and the patient has died. I have seen them do the wrong thing causing further complications to your injuries. I have seen them do things that have paralyzed someone for life. Most of these crimes are hidden and most families do nothing to expose them. If for one-second you think every paramedic in this country is honest and trust worthy, you will definitely become prey to them. Please help me expose these people as there are many of them collecting a pay check from your tax dollars. In Hampton, Virginia, Medic/Firefighters are deliberately withholding and delaying care to minority patients who call 911, causing serious injury and death. I am calling for an independent investigation into these activities. Please view the below site and see the evidence for your self. In Hampton the evidence is over whelming that this goes on. In one such case two African American males were denied treatment and care withheld for a documented 40 plus minutes while they bled to death. The state EMS board is finally investigating this case. Please email the investigator and let him know you support an investigation, and the truth will come out. The investigator is Dave Cullen, his email is, [email protected] [email protected] VIEW http://members.spree.com/health/rescue13457/default.htm

The police is killing our young men and is getting off, no jobs available for the young so they are turning to the gangs. We really need some stability, answers and some one to turn to. Please help us out. Send me any and all information about your organization. My address is 3019 Dea=catur Street/Omaha,NE/68111. Thanks, Kazi & Kazija

I'm am truly impressed by Mr. Jackson's work. I'm trying to regain the knowledge about myself/African people, which was subsequently lost by our ancestors through the slave trade and assimilation into Western Culture To hear about Mr. Jackson and his work during the earlier part of the 20th Century is amazing because of the limited means of mediums available ih those days--i.e., television, computers--. Seeing how Mr. Jackson gathered all of this valuable information by means which didn't involve all of the modern tools that we have today, has truly inspired me to continue to pursue African History, and appreciate his diligent works!

I was very impressed with your website. At the present time I am a member with ASCAC and wanted to know if you have any chapters beginning here in California.

The slave chains that had my mind locked down have come finally come apart! After so many years of being taught and living in ignorance, I now understand what's truly going on! I have with me Dr. Ben's book "Cultural Genocide In The Black & African Studies Curriculum", it is powerful! I thank the spirit of God for this. [email protected]
