Today is a sad day for the Barrow family, its ancestors and for the city of my birth. Today, conservative extremists, headed by a governor who fooled a majority progressive state, takes the Democracy of my city and I am saddened. Now, over 50% of Michigan African Americans are needlessly under state control. Only the naive will believe it has to do with some kind of fiscal emergency for I know that none truly exists. No my friends, it has to do with Detroit’s assets.

Some reading this post disagree and openly applaud and welcome this take over, not realizing or understanding that it signals your own democratic demise. As the governor takes our city and its assets,

Protesters during Jim Crow era in the South.

Protesters during Jim Crow era in the South.

I am reminded of the unjust Jim Crow laws from decades ago. Those unjust laws are as much a part of our history as was the unhappy years of slavery and must never be forgotten or disregarded. When we disregard that history and ignore that the ancestors of those who created those unjust Jim Crow laws back then were raised by those law’s creators and are today in many positions of leadership with that same mindset, we are destined for political impotence.

No my fellow Detroiters, you must never stop resisting for now Detroit, we will be given a Master…makes no difference the color of the face in front of you, for behind that face is the true Master. No my fair minded fellow Detroiters everywhere, while I am saddened, I am also angry for we are being falsely oppressed based upon a phony…faux…non-existent fiscal emergency rooted in an unjust law which is nothing short of a Jim Crowesque abuse of law. PA4 was rejected and an unjust successor was created to oppress.

My friends, if we did not know why in 2009 the Wayne County Canvassers disregarded 60,000 ballots in a Mayoral contest where only 9,500 would alter the result because case seals had been changed, we should all know now.

Finally, over the next few weeks my family and I shall decide our future in Detroit….for now more than ever we need strength of leadership as Livonia’s Michael Duggan has been sent and he is in the temple, chosen to become Bing 2.0 and complete the take over circle.

  1. THE CRISIS IN DETROIT REGARDING THE BANKRUPTCY WAS A PLOY TO TAKE CONTROL OF THE WATER DEPARTMENT BY THE GOP GOVERNORS, THIS GOP EMERGENCY MANAGER CREATED THE CRISIS TO GET AROUND THE DETROIT CITY CHARTER WHICH STATES THAT THE CITY DON’T OWN THE DEPT. IT IS OWNED BY THE CITIZENS OF DETROIT. Since the Honorable Coleman Young was mayor they have been trying to steal it, The Detroit Water Authority is ILLEGAL, without a vote from the citizens of Detroit.

    class action is the way to reparations for the citizens, “GET TO WORK”.

    The State of Michigan also bears some blame. Lansing politicians reduced Detroit’s state-shared revenue by 48% from 1998 to 2012, withholding $172 million from the city, according to state records.

    Hi,

    3,600 residents in Detroit are already without water. Why? Because they have bills of $150 or more, or are 60 days past due on bills in a city that is bankrupt. Soon, half of the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department’s 323,900 local residents will be out of water. It is unacceptable to withhold our citizens’ basic needs like clean running water.

    We need to call attention to this unacceptable violation of human rights, and quickly — before more homes run dry.

    Sign our petition to demand that the Detroit Water and Sewage Department restore running water to the residents of Detroit.

    That’s why I signed a petition to James Fausone, chairman of the Detroit Board of Water Commissioners, which says:

    “We demand that the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stop violating basic human rights and return clean water to Detroit citizens.”

    Will you sign this petition? Click here:

    Thanks!

    I tried to enlighten you many times that this hostile take over was comming up the pike but no one would listen and now you wanht my HELP? YOU WON’T LISTEN. tHIS IS THE BY-PRODUCT OF THE ENGLER TEMPLATE. Gov. Snyder promised that he was going to be a Engler type of governor, this was his key word during his campaigning. Those constuients of Engler put him over the local Democrat, but he still had to cheat. NO ONE WILL LISTEN, I AM YOUR BOOTS ON THE GROUND VICTIM OF THE ENGLER TEMPLATE. IF THE AG LOOKED INTO THE ENGLER TENURE, IT’S THERE IN PLAIN SIGHT IT BEGAN WITH THE VIOLATION OF EQUAL PROTECTION LAW OF MICHIGAN. A IN YOUR FACE VIOLATION RE: The real tragedy in America is the Jim Crow attitude of politicans like Gov. John Engler thats tenure is a template for Reps, he declared ‘War’ on American fathers of Wayne County. After presidet Clinton gave in to the Reps. on Welfare Reform, armed with PRWORA gave them carte blanc and by demonizing these fathers and with The Friend of the Courts as his legal arm, Poverty was the only results as all studies will show this to be fact. while America sleeps and civil rights organizations turned a blind eye such as the ACLU had predicted would happen, while America sleeps these policies are embedded in our system of government and courts as law. on to this self inflicted castration Jim Crow policy. Self inflicted genocide? the law of the land.

    GENDER BASED DISCRIMINATION
    i FURTHER CONTEND THAT THE PATERNITY ACT provision constituted impermissible gender based discrimination in violationof the Equal Protection Clauses of Michigan
    While President Obama campaigned on politican using their office for their own personal gains, he need to look at John Englers tenure as governor of Michigan, While America slept. Jim row is alive and well even with a Afroamerican President and Attorney General they have no idea of how racial politics has been played. Not even after the Republican leadership told him they were not going to support anything that come from the Democratic leadship. This is what they do to keep him chasing the ball so he will have no time to look under the rug for the dirt that has been hidden for years by his Republican predessors. The Republicans know that the tragedy of the FOC will never cross their minds, and that the Republican that run on the John Engler template will win. Attorney General Holder will never look into that cesspol of racism.
    Why did President Obama give in,it say a lot about his words to the American People and the strengh of his convictions to all AfroAmericans, look at the governments website Wayne Metro.org and look at that subliminal message, you see their version of the Afroamerican Family structure, Endangered Spicie? a way of life in America …THE ATTACH PIX WERE ON THE WEBSITE. I complained enough to have them change the pix on the website to what it is now, one person can make a difference, NOW IS A GOOD TIME FOR A RECALL INVESTIGATION BY THE US IG & AG, THE LONG ARM OF THE US GOVERNMENT NEED TO LISTEN TO THE SOLDIERS ON THE GROUND WHO SAW THIS TAKE OVER LONG TIME COMMING

    Subject: We really need your help

    It’s urgent, Worris.

    Last Thursday, Michigan legislators passed one of the most anti-worker pieces of legislation the state has ever seen — a so-called Right to Work bill. It jeopardizes the livelihoods of working families throughout the state, particularly families of color.

    After the legislature meets for a final vote, Governor Rick Snyder will decide this week whether to sign the bill into law. We need you to stand with our brothers and sisters in Michigan by urging the Governor to veto the legislation.

    Contact Governor Rick Snyder and tell him he must veto any Right to Work legislation that reaches his desk. His number is: 517-373-3400

    For more than a century, labor unions and the NAACP have worked together to help form the backbone of the middle class. But this Right to Work bill will reverse all our hard work: gutting the power of working families, lowering wages, and decreasing access to education and healthcare.

    Everyone will be impacted, there’s no two ways about it. Teachers, nurses, public safety workers, automobile workers, clergy, and so many others will be left without power on the job if this bill passes.

    And it won’t only be union members, either. Workers in Right to Work states make on average $1,500 LESS per year, and studies have shown other state economies stagnated after passing similar bills.

    We know who is behind these attacks. They are the same people who tried to take away your right to vote. We didn’t stand for it then, and we won’t stand for this new assault on working families now.

    You have the power to stop this. Tell Governor Snyder to veto the Right to Work legislation:

    http://action.naacp.org/call-the-governor
    Former Governor John Engler iniated a Declaration of War on the fathers of Wayne County and he declared Detroit asGroundZero. He had the maxcimum terms to impliment his War and abuse of power.
    As a long time Detroiter you know that this is true as the record will show

    If you won’t be a part of the solution you remain with the dirty deeders, how many violations of the Constitution starting with that cesspool of a court, the Friend of the Court is no friend to black families.

    a little food for thought and class action proceedings?
