President Obama really deserves this honor. Did you know he would not pardon great African hero Marcus Garvey? Well, Florida-based Jamaican-born attorney Donovan Parker has been writing to president Obama every week since January 2014 requesting a posthumous pardon for Garvey, who many believe was set up by the J Edgar Hoover-led Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), fearful of his widening popularity among downtrodden US blacks.
The sad thing was Marcus Garvey has really been kept out of the school history book for really nothing at all. Garvey was imprisoned for mail fraud totaling US$25 in June 1923, and after spending two years and nine months in an Atlanta Federal Penitentiary, was deported from New Orleans, Louisiana to Jamaica on a ship.
President Obama reduced the sentences Thursday of eight prisoners serving long federal prison sentences — six of them life sentences — under draconian laws for crack-cocaine sentencing. He also pardoned 13 others, at least six of whom were in prison for drug offenses.
In a statement, Obama noted that the eight individuals whose sentences he commuted were serving racially discriminatory sentences for crack cocaine, under a pre-2010 sentencing disparity that issued sentences 100 times harsher for crack cocaine, associated with African Americans, than for powder cocaine, associated with whites.
Ok so why not Marcus Garvey? Obama has even pardon Miles Thomas Wilson – Williamsburg, Ohio. His offense: Mail fraud (Southern District of Ohio) he was sentence three years’ probation (Jul. 15, 1981). Even he got a pardon for the same offense.
Marcus Mosiah Garvey is also a National Hero of Jamaica, West Indies and a leading forebear of the African American civil rights experience,” wrote Parker.
“It is full time that this extraordinary human being of humble beginnings and strong moral character be pardoned by the pen of an American president. It would be fitting if both you, Mr President, and the first lady visit Jamaica for the purposes of signing the executive order pardoning Marcus Mosiah Garvey.”
In a tersely worded reply to Parker’s request, White House Pardon Attorney, Ronald Rodgers said such a move would be a waste of time and resources since Garvey had been dead for ages.
“It is the general policy of the Department of Justice that requests for posthumous pardons for federal offences not be processed for adjudication. The policy is grounded in the belief that the time of the officials involved in the clemency process is better spent on pardon and commutation requests of living persons.
“Many posthumous pardon requests would likely be based on a claim of manifest injustice, and given that decades have passed since the event and the historical record would have to be scoured to objectively and comprehensively investigate such applications, it is the Department’s position that the limited resources which are available to process requests for Presidential clemency — now being submitted in record numbers — are best dedicated to requests submitted by persons who can truly benefit from a grant of the request,” Rodgers replied on behalf of Obama, who is the first black president in the history of the United States.
Parker expressed his utter disappointment at the latest development and called on US ambassador to Jamaica Pamela Bridgewater, to add her voice to the call for Garvey to be officially pardoned. This is truly shameful in my opinion. Obama should be ashamed of himself! Garvey is one of our greatest ancestors. But this shows he’s just a slick talking mulatto. He has never cared about black people. He cares more about the rights of homosexuals/lesbians than the plight of black people worldwide. This should be a wake up call to all African people. Obama is truly a buffoon! He is just like the all the Presidents before him. He spits in the face of black people!
Stripper/model/actress/media whore Amber Rose has a big following. It seems that many fans will defend her to no end. Many self hating black men say she’s a bad chick and a beautiful black woman. And you have many self loathing,idiotic black women who see this self serving whorish woman as a role model. But I have news for these self hating coons….she’s not a black woman! Oh wait! Are you shocked? First of all this woman is not anyone young girls should look up to anway. Whether they are black,white or any race. She is most famous for dating brain dead rappers like Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa. She even has a child with Wiz. I pray for that child. But anyway,why are black people so in love with this woman? Why do they defend her when she’s not even an African woman.
Claiming this woman has black shows black people are very confused.Her father is said to have Italian and Irish ancestry. Given the surname “Levonchuck”, he also likely has Eastern European ancestry. Her mother, whose name is either Shauna Soares or Dorothy, has Afro-Cape Verdean and Scottish ancestry.Cape Verde is a group of islands located off the coast of West Africa. It’s interesting to note that most of the population (about 71%) of Cape Verde is a mix of Sub-Saharan Africans and Europeans usually from Portugal and Spain. Amber’s paternal grandparents were Francis/Frank J. Levonchuck (the son of Philip Levonchuck and Eva Tarnaske) and Rose.Amber’s maternal grandfather was Anthony Rose. There is very little African in that genetic makeup. She’s getting in the Ronda Rousey territory if you ask me.
This woman should not be defended. She’s no different than Kim Kardashian. They both love the media attention,sleep with famous rappers and have no real talent. I have no idea why some black women stand up for this woman. She’s not black yet they defend this woman. Amber even started some silly movement called a Slutwalk. So now being a slut is something positive? Being a slut is progressive? is this really moving women forward? I definitely don’t think so.This is backwards thinking and shows how easily our people can be mislead. The sad part is you have REAL black women that are trying to uplift their people through social media and can’t get enough support. Yet Amber has over three million followers on Twitter! This shows you many of us have lost our minds. She also is very sexually confused. She once described herself as “half lesbian”. What the hell is that? This woman is completely lost!!
And if you don’t believe me,here are Amber’s own words:
“I do not consider myself a black woman. Absolutely not….Bi-racial. I embrace everything that I am, I don’t feel like I’m more one thing, than the other.”
This woman is nothing but a hip hop version of Rachel Dolezal. I rest my case!
I haven’t done a Buffoonery post in awhile. And I know a lot of my followers like them so I thought I’d bring it back. When I saw this article I knew I had to do a post on it. British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor recently said that homosexuals have it harder than blacks. Can you believe that? It’s bad enough his wife is white but to say something like that is unforgivable. And people still tell me the gay agenda is not real. I thought I had misread it when I first saw it. Chiwetel Ejiofor believes Hollywood still marginalizes people because of their sexuality. The industry has been accused of a lack of diversity following the 2016 Academy Awards nominations, where no African-American actor or director was nominated for a top honor for the second year in a row, but the actor “believes it’s harder for someone to succeed if they’re homosexual than if they’re black. “I hope this changes (but) I think it’s probably harder to be gay,” he said.
“I think sexuality is still marginalized in a way that is pretty open. I think it’s tough. I think for one’s own peace of mind, for one’s own sense of self and psychological health, I feel like that’s the horrible thing about ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’… Because it produces a sense of shame, and therefore this sense of being ‘less than’, you know? And I hate that. I hate that for anybody.”
But Ejiofor, 38, argues that at the same time, a person’s sexuality isn’t anyone else’s business, and if the individual wants to, they should be able to declare their preference without fear of it affecting their opportunities in life in any way.
“If I hadn’t had the opportunities and the fortune that I have had, of course I would have a very different perspective to that, but I can’t be completely intellectually dishonest about what has happened in my life… It’s a tiny bit more nuanced for me to talk about,” he explained.”
This is taking self-hating coonery to a new level. Hollywood is ran by a bunch of Jewish butt pirates…but they have it harder than blacks?? What do you think?
There are no words to describe this buffoonery. I guess you could call this the “gay edition”. This is the Alabama all-male cheerleading team. They are known as the Prancing Elites. This video is enough evidence of why black men need to be raising their sons in the proper manner. The video is only a minute long but it seems like an eternity. Buffoonery in the highest degree.
A few months ago Russell Simmons had a video on Youtube disgracing the legacy of Harriet Tubman. It was supposed to be a comedy sketch of her having sex with her slave master. This is NOT funny in my opinion. You should never degrade your ancestors that fought for your liberation. But I’m sure he’s just following what his white masters told him to do. This man still has a slave mentality. Simmons has since removed the video after people complained about it. This video is from the Arsenio Hall Show. He speaks about his “apology” and the aftermath that followed. He is a true buffoon with no backbone. Judge for yourself.
