“No Life of a Black Man is worth the blood of a white!” Sellassie warned that, “God and History will remember Your Judgment.”
This would be the start of a World War.

~"Sellassie, The Lion of Judah" - 'Ehiopian King of Kings'~

“That until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned: That until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation; That until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes; That until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race; That until that day, the dream of lasting peace and world citizenship and the rule of international morality will remain but a fleeting illusion, to be pursued but never attained and until the ignoble but unhappy regimes that hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique, and in South Africa in subhuman bondage have been toppled and destroyed; until bigotry and prejudice and malicious and inhuman self-interest have been replaced by understanding and tolerance and goodwill; until all Africans stand and speak as free human beings, equal in the eyes of the Almighty; until that day, the African continent shall not know peace. We Africans will fight if necessary and we know that we shall win as we are confident in the victory of good over evil.”

“A qualified man with vision, unmoved by daily selfish interests, will be led to right decisions by his conscience. In general, a man who knows from whence he comes and where he is going will co-operate with his fellow human beings. He will not be satisfied with merely doing his ordinary duties but will inspire others by his good example. You are being watched by the nation and you should realize that you will satisfy it if you do good; but if, on the contrary, you do evil, it will lose its hope and its confidence in you.

...Although the toils of wise people may earn them respect, it is a fact of life that the spirit of the wicked continues to cast its shadow on this world. The arrogant are seen visibly leading their people into crime and destruction. The laws of the League of Nations are constantly violated and wars and acts of aggression repeatedly take place... So that the spirit of the cursed will not gain predominance over the human race whom Christ redeemed with his blood, all peace-loving people should cooperate to stand firm in order to preserve and promote lawfulness and peace.”

"God and History Will Remember Your Judgment."

To Ethiopians, Haile Selassie has been known by many names, including Janhoy, Talaqu Meri, and Abba Tekel. The Rastafari movement employs many of these appellations, also referring to him as Jah, Jah Rastafari, and HIM (the abbreviation of "His Imperial Majesty").

Liji Teferi Makonnen was born on July 23, 1892, in Harar, a cosmopolitan market center and capital of one of Ethiopia’s most important provinces. His father, Ras Makonnen of Shawa, besides being governor Harar Province, was first cousin to and a close advisor of the great Ethiopian Emperor, Menelik II, 1889-1913. Through his father, Tafari was said to be a direct descendent of ‘King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba,’ an important claim to a kingdom where Christianity was the official state religion. His mother Woizero ("Lady") Yeshimebet Ali Abba Jifar; was entirely of Ethiopia’s elite “Amharie stock.” This fact perhaps played a role in influencing the future emperor’s relatively benevolent policies toward some of Ethiopia’s minority groups.

Disregarding its 1928 20-year treaty of friendship with Ethiopia, Benito Mussolini launched a full sea invasion of Ethiopia in 1935. The superior technology of the industrialized western states, which included poisonous gas, along with their air planes and tanks overwhelmed the heroic resistance of the Ethiopian Army. Against his better judgment, Haile Sellassie personally led the Ethiopian Army in the field and was defeated at ‘Maichew’ in March 1936. Because the country of Ethiopia held membership in the League of Nations, the Emperor in an emotionally powerful speech begged the League of Nations for help. He was told by the British Ambassador, the only one who would meet with him; that “No Life of a Black Man is worth the blood of a white!” Sellassie warned that, “God and History will remember Your Judgment.”

This would be the start of a World War.

The emperor arrives in Jerusalem. May 1936:

After further debate as to whether Haile Selassie should go to Gore or accompany his family into exile, it was agreed that he should leave Ethiopia with his family and present the case of Ethiopia to the League of Nations at Geneva. The decision was not unanimous and several participants, including the nobleman Blatta Tekle Wolde Hawariat, strenuously objected to the idea of an Ethiopian monarch fleeing before an invading force. Haile Selassie appointed his cousin Ras Imru Haile Selassie as Prince Regent in his absence, departing with his family for Djibouti on May 2, 1936.

On 5 May, Marshal Pietro Badoglio led Italian troops into Addis Ababa, and Mussolini declared Ethiopia an Italian province. Victor Emanuel III was proclaimed as the new Emperor of Ethiopia. However, on the previous day, the Ethiopian exiles had left Djibouti aboard the British cruiser HMS Enterprise. They were bound for Jerusalem in the British Mandate of Palestine, where from the House of David. Leaving the Holy Land, Haile Selassie and his entourage sailed for Gibraltar aboard the British cruiser HMS Capetown. From Gibraltar, the exiles were transferred to an ordinary liner. By doing this, the government of the United Kingdom was spared the expense of a state reception.

Collective security and the League of Nations, 1936:

Mussolini, upon invading Ethiopia, had promptly declared his own "Italian Empire"; because the League of Nations afforded Haile Selassie the opportunity to address the assembly, Italy even withdrew its League delegation, on 12 May 1936. It was in this context that Haile Selassie walked into the hall of the League of Nations, introduced by the President of the Assembly as "His Imperial Majesty, the Emperor of Ethiopia" (Sa Majesté Imperiale, l'Empereur d'Ethiopie).

The introduction caused a great many Italian journalists in the galleries to erupt into jeering, heckling, and whistling. As it turned out, they had earlier been issued whistles by Mussolini's son-in-law, Count Galeazzo Ciano.

Haile Selassie waited calmly for the hall to be cleared, and responded "majestically" with a speech sometimes considered among the most stirring of the 20th century.

The Imperial family disembarked at Haifa and then went on to Jerusalem, where the Ethiopian Royal Family maintained a residence. Once there, Haile Selassie and his party prepared to make their case at Geneva. The choice of Jerusalem was highly symbolic, since the Solomonic Dynasty claimed descent.

Although fluent in French, the working language of the League, Haile Selassie chose to deliver his historic speech in his native Amharic. He asserted that, because his "confidence in the League was absolute"; his people were now being slaughtered. He pointed out that the same European states that found in Ethiopia's favor at the League of Nations were refusing Ethiopia credit and matériel while aiding Italy, which was employing chemical weapons on military and civilian targets alike.

It was at the time when the operations for the encircling of Makale were taking place that the Italian command, fearing a rout, followed the procedure which it is now the worlds’ duty to denounce.

Special sprayers were installed on board aircraft so that they could vaporize, over vast areas of territory, a fine, death-dealing rain. Groups of nine, fifteen, eighteen aircraft followed one another so that the fog issuing from them formed a continuous sheet. It was thus that, as from the end of January 1936, soldiers, women, children, cattle, rivers, lakes, and pastures were drenched continually with this deadly rain. In order to kill off systematically all living creatures, in order to more surely poison waters and pastures, the Italian command made its aircraft pass over and over again. That was its chief method of warfare.

Noting that his own "small people of 12 million inhabitants, without arms, without resources" could never withstand an attack by a large power such as Italy, with its 42 million people and "unlimited quantities of the most death-dealing weapons", he contended that all small states were threatened by the aggression, and that all small states were in effect reduced to vassal states in the absence of collective action. He admonished the League that "God and history will remember your judgment."

Gurage heritage. Tafari's father was Ras Makonnen Woldemikael Gudessa, the governor of Harar. Ras Makonnen served as a general in the First Italo–Ethiopian War, playing a key role at the Battle of Adwa; he too was paternally Oromo but maternally Amhara. Haile Selassie was thus able to ascend to the imperial throne through his paternal grandmother, Woizero Tenagnework Sahle Selassie, who was an aunt of Emperor Menelik II and daughter of Negus Sahle Selassie of Shewa. As such, Haile Selassie claimed direct descent from Makeda, the Queen of Sheba, and King Solomon of ancient Israel.

To Ethiopians, Haile Selassie has been known by many names, including Janhoy, Talaqu Meri, and Abba Tekel. The Rastafari movement employs many of these appellations, also referring to him as Jah, Jah Rastafari, and HIM (the abbreviation of "His Imperial Majesty").

As Governor of Harer, he became known as ‘Ras Teferi Makonnen.’ Ras translates to "head" and is a rank of nobility equivalent to Duke; though it is often rendered in translation as "Prince". In 1916, Empress Zewditu I appointed him to the position of Balemulu Silt'an Enderase (Regent Plenipotentiary). In 1928, she granted him the throne of “Shoa,” elevating his title to “Negus” or "King".

Lij Teferi Makonnen, a.k.a., Haille Sellassie was born in the Harar province of Ethiopia on July 23, 1892, in the village of Ejersa Goro.

His mother was Woizero ("Lady") Yeshimebet Ali Abba Jifar, daughter of the renowned Oromo ruler of Wollo province Dejazmach Ali Abba Jifar. Ras Makonnen Woldemikael and his son Lij Tafari Makonnen, Haile Selassie's royal line (through his father's mother) originated from the Amhara people, but he also had Oromo, and Gurage roots.

Ras Makonnen arranged for Tafari as well as his first cousin, Imru Haile Selassie, to receive instruction in Harar from Abba Samuel Wolde Kahin, an Ethiopian capuchin monk, and from Dr. Vitalien, a surgeon from Guadeloupe. Tafari was named Dejazmach (literally "commander of the gate", roughly equivalent to "count") at the age of 13, on 1 November 1905. Shortly thereafter, his father Ras Makonnen died at Kulibi in 1906.

Lij Teferi Makonnen at age 3:

Haile Selassie was known as a child as Lij Tafari Makonnen (Amharic ልጅ ተፈሪ መኮንን; lij teferī mekōnnin). Lij translates to "child", and serves to indicate that a youth is of noble blood. His given name, Tafari, means "one who is respected or feared". Like most Ethiopians, his personal name Tafari is followed by that of his father Makonnen and rarely that of his grandfather Woldemikael. His Ge'ez name Haile Selassie was given to him at his infant baptism and adopted again as part of his Regal name in 1930.

Haile Selassie (Ge'ez: ቀዳማዊ ኃይለ ሥላሴ qädamawi haylä səllasé; Amharic: [ha.ɪlɜ sɨlːase] (23 July 1892 – 27 August 1975), born Tafari Makonnen Woldemikael, was Ethiopia's regent from 1916 to 1930 and Emperor of Ethiopia from 1930 to 1974.

He was the heir to a dynasty that traced its origins by tradition from King Solomon and Queen Makeda, Empress of Axum, known in the Abrahamic tradition as the Queen of Sheba.

Following the death of his brother Yelma in 1907, the governorate of Harar was left vacant, and its administration was left to Menelik's loyal general, Dejazmach Balcha Safo. Balcha Safo's administration of Harar was ineffective, and so during the last illness of Menelik II, and the brief reign of Empress Taitu Bitul, Tafari was made governor of Harar in 1910 or 1911.

On 2 November 1930, after the death of Empress Zewditu, Ras Tafari was crowned King of Kings, often rendered imprecisely in English as "Emperor". Upon his ascension, he took as his Regal name Haile Selassie I. Haile means in Ge'ez "Power of" and Selassie means trinity—therefore Haile Selassie roughly translates to "Power of the Trinity". Haile Selassie's full title in office was "By the Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, King of Kings of Ethiopia, Elect of God". This title reflects Ethiopian dynastic traditions, which hold that all monarchs must trace their lineage back to Menelik I, who in the Ethiopian tradition was the offspring of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba.

On 3 August, he married Menen Asfaw of Ambassel, niece of heir to the throne Lij Iyasu.

Dejazmatch Tafari, as governor of Harar Tafari assumed the titular governorship of Selale in 1906, a realm of marginal importance, but one that enabled him to continue his studies. In 1907, he was appointed governor over part of the province of Sidamo. It is alleged that during his late teens, Haile Selassie was married to Woizero Altayech, and that from this union, his daughter Princess Romanework was born.

Regency:

The extent to which Tafari Makonnen contributed to the movement that would come to depose Iyasu V has been discussed extensively, particularly in Haile Selassie's own detailed account of the matter. Iyasu V, or Lij Iyasu, was the designated but uncrowned Emperor of Ethiopia from 1913 to 1916. Iyasu's reputation for scandalous behavior and a disrespectful attitude towards the nobles at the court of his grandfather, Menelik II, damaged his reputation. Iyasu's flirtation with Islam was considered treasonous among the Ethiopian Orthodox Christian leadership of the empire. On 27 September 1916, Iyasu was deposed.

Contributing to the movement that deposed Iyasu were conservatives such as Fitawrari Habte Giyorgis, Menelik II's longtime Minister of War. The movement to depose Iyasu preferred by Tafari, as he attracted support from both progressive and conservative factions. Ultimately, Iyasu was deposed on the grounds of conversion to Islam.

In his place, the daughter of Menelik II (the aunt of Iyasu) was named Empress Zewditu, while Tafari was elevated to the rank of Ras and was made heir apparent and Crown Prince. In the power arrangement that followed, Tafari accepted the role of Regent Plenipotentiary (Balemulu 'Inderase) and became the de facto ruler of the Ethiopian Empire (Mangista Ityop'p'ya). Zewditu would govern while Tafari would administer.

The Emperor arrives in Jerusalem May 1936:

After further debate as to whether Haile Selassie should go to Gore or accompany his family into exile, it was agreed that he should leave Ethiopia with his family and present the case of Ethiopia to the League of Nations at Geneva. The decision was not unanimous and several participants, including the nobleman Blatta Tekle Wolde Hawariat, strenuously objected to the idea of an Ethiopian monarch fleeing before an invading force. Haile Selassie appointed his cousin Ras Imru Haile Selassie as Prince Regent in his absence, departing with his family for Djibouti on 2 May 1936.

On 5 May, Marshal Pietro Badoglio led Italian troops into Addis Ababa, and Mussolini declared Ethiopia an Italian province. Victor Emanuel III was proclaimed as the new Emperor of Ethiopia. However, on the previous day, the Ethiopian exiles had left Djibouti aboard the British cruiser HMS Enterprise. They were bound for Jerusalem in the British Mandate of Palestine, (who were from) the House of David. Leaving the Holy Land, Haile Selassie and his entourage sailed for Gibraltar aboard the British cruiser HMS Capetown. From Gibraltar, the exiles were transferred to an ordinary liner. By doing this, the government of the United Kingdom was spared the expense of a state reception.

Collective security and the League of Nations, 1936:

The Ethiopian Royal Family maintained a residence. The Imperial family disembarked at Haifa and then went on to Jerusalem. Once there, Haile Selassie and his retinue prepared to make their case at Geneva. The choice of Jerusalem was highly symbolic, since the Solomonic Dynasty claimed descent.

Although fluent in French, the working language of the League, Haile Selassie chose to deliver his historic speech in his native Amharic. He asserted that, because his "confidence in the League was absolute", his people were now being slaughtered. He pointed out that the same European states that found in Ethiopia's favor at the League of Nations were refusing Ethiopia credit and matériel while aiding Italy, which was employing chemical weapons on military and civilian targets alike.

Mussolini, upon invading Ethiopia, had promptly declared his own "Italian Empire"; because the League of Nations afforded Haile Selassie the opportunity to address the assembly, Italy even withdrew its League delegation, on 12 May 1936. It was in this context that Haile Selassie walked into the hall of the League of Nations, introduced by the President of the Assembly as "His Imperial Majesty, the Emperor of Ethiopia" (Sa Majesté Imperiale, l'Empereur d'Ethiopie).

The introduction caused a great many Italian journalists in the galleries to erupt into jeering, heckling, and whistling. As it turned out, they had earlier been issued whistles by Mussolini's son-in-law, Count Galeazzo Ciano. Haile Selassie waited calmly for the hall to be cleared, and responded "Majestically" with a speech sometimes considered among the most stirring of the 20th century.

It was at the time when the operations for the encircling of Makale were taking place that the Italian command, fearing a resurgence or uprising, a rout or a disorderly flight of the defeated; the utterly slaughtered; like that of swine, followed the procedure which it is now a duty to denounce to the world. Special sprayers were installed on board aircraft so that they could vaporize, over vast areas of territory, a fine, death-dealing rain.

Groups of nine, fifteen, eighteen aircraft followed one another so that the fog issuing from them formed a continuous sheet. It was thus that, as from the end of January 1936, soldiers, women, children, cattle, rivers, lakes, and pastures were drenched continually with this deadly rain. In order to kill off systematically all living creatures, in order to more surely poison waters and pastures, the Italian command made its aircraft pass over and over again. That was its chief method of warfare.

It is collective security; it is the very existence of the League of Nations. It is the confidence that each State is to place in international treaties.... In a word, it is international morality that is at stake. Have the signatures appended to a Treaty value only in so far as the signatory Powers have a personal, direct and immediate interest involved?

Noting that his own "small people of 12 million inhabitants, without arms, without resources" could never withstand an attack by a large power such as Italy, with its 42 million people and "unlimited quantities of the most death-dealing weapons", he contended that all small states were threatened by the aggression, and that all small states were in effect reduced to vassal states in the absence of collective action. He admonished the League that "God and history will remember your judgment."

The speech made the emperor an icon for anti-fascists around the world, and Time named him "Man of the Year".

He failed, however, to get what he most needed: the League agreed to only partial and ineffective sanctions on Italy. Only six nations in 1937 did not recognize Italy's occupation; they were China, New Zealand, the Soviet Union, the Republic of Spain, Mexico and the United States.

Haile Selassie's activity in this period was focused on countering Italian propaganda as to the state of Ethiopian resistance and the legality of the occupation. He spoke out against the desecration of houses of worship and historical artifacts (including the theft of a 1,600-year-old imperial obelisk), and condemned the atrocities suffered by the Ethiopian civilian population. He continued to plead for League intervention and to voice his certainty that "God's judgment will eventually visit the weak and the mighty alike", though his attempts to gain support for the struggle against Italy were largely unsuccessful until Italy entered World War II on the German side in June 1940.

The emperor's pleas for international support did take root in the United States, particularly among African-American organizations sympathetic to the Ethiopian cause.

In 1937, Haile Selassie was to give a Christmas Day radio address to the American people to thank his supporters when his taxi was involved in a traffic accident, leaving him with a fractured knee. Rather than canceling the radio appearance, he proceeded in much pain to complete the address, in which he linked Christianity and goodwill with the Covenant of the League of Nations.

He also asserted that "War is not the only means to stop war"

This became the first message:

“With the birth of the Son of God, an unprecedented, an unrepeatable, and a long-anticipated phenomenon occurred. He was born in a stable instead of a palace, in a manger instead of a crib. The hearts of the Wise men were struck by fear and wonder due to His Majestic Humbleness. The kings prostrated themselves before Him and worshipped Him. 'Peace be to those who have good will.”

“The Un-Obscure”

“...Although the toils of wise people may earn them respect, it is a fact of life that the spirit of the wicked continues to cast its shadow on this world. The arrogant are seen visibly leading their people into crime and destruction. The laws of the League of Nations are constantly violated and wars and acts of aggression repeatedly take place... So that the spirit of the cursed will not gain predominance over the human race whom Christ redeemed with his blood, all peace-loving people should cooperate to stand firm in order to preserve and promote lawfulness and peace.”

Mobilization:

Following the 5 December 1934 Italian invasion of Ethiopia at Walwal, Ogeden Province, Haile Selassie joined his northern armies and set up headquarters at Desse in Wollo province.

H.I.M. issued his mobilization order on 3 October 1935:

Ethiopia became the target of renewed Italian imperialist designs in the 1930s. BenitoMussolini's Fascist regime was keen to avenge the military defeats Italy had suffered to Ethiopia in the First Italo-Abyssinian War, and to efface the failed attempt by "liberal" Italy to conquer the country, as epitomized by the defeat at Adowa. A conquest of Ethiopia could also empower the cause of fascism and embolden its rhetoric of empire. Ethiopia would also provide a bridge between Italy's Eritrean and Italian Somaliland possessions. Ethiopia's position in the League of Nations did not dissuade the Italians from invading in 1935; the "collective security" envisaged by the League proved useless, and a scandal erupted when the Hoare-Laval Pact revealed that Ethiopia's League allies were scheming to appease Italy.

“If you withhold from your country Ethiopia, the death from cough or head-cold of which you would otherwise die, refusing to resist (in your district, in your patrimony, and in your home) our enemy who is coming from a distant country to attack us, and if you persist in not shedding your blood, you will be rebuked for it by your Creator and will be cursed by your offspring. Hence, without cooling your heart of accustomed valor, there emerges your decision to fight fiercely, mindful of your history that will last far into the future.... If on your march you touch any property inside houses or cattle and crops outside, not even grass, straw, and dung excluded, it is like killing your brother who is dying with you.... You, countryman, living at the various access routes, set up a market for the army at the places where it is camping and on the day your district-governor will indicate to you, lest the soldiers campaigning for Ethiopia's liberty should experience difficulty. You will not be charged excise duty, until the end of the campaign, for anything you are marketing at the military camps: I have granted you remission.... After you have been ordered to go to war, but are then idly missing from the campaign, and when you are seized by the local chief or by an accuser, you will have punishment inflicted upon your inherited land, your property, and your body; to the accuser I shall grant a third of your property.

Although the toils of wise people may earn them respect, it is a fact of life that the spirit of the wicked continues to cast its shadow on this world. The arrogant are seen visibly leading their people into crime and destruction. The laws of the League of Nations are constantly violated and wars and acts of aggression repeatedly take place... So that the spirit of the cursed will not gain predominance over the human race whom Christ redeemed with his blood, all peace-loving people should cooperate to stand firm in order to preserve and promote lawfulness and peace.

Today is the day on which we defeated our enemy. Therefore, when we say let us rejoice with our hearts, let not our rejoicing be in any other way but in the spirit of Christ. Do not return evil for evil. Do not indulge in the atrocities which the enemy has been practicing in his usual way, even to the last.

Take care not to spoil the good name of Ethiopia by acts which are worthy of the enemy. We shall see that our enemies are disarmed and sent out the same way they came. As Saint George who killed the dragon is the Patron Saint of our army as well as of our allies, let us unite with our allies in everlasting friendship and amity in order to be able to stand against the godless and cruel dragon which has newly risen and which is oppressing mankind.

Nearly two decades ago, I personally assumed before history the responsibility of placing the fate of my beloved people on the issue of collective security, for surely, at that time and for the first time in world history, that issue was posed in all its clarity. My searching of conscience convinced me of the rightness of my course and if, after untold sufferings and, indeed, unaided resistance at the time of aggression, we now see the final vindication of that principle in our joint action in Korea, I can only be thankful that God gave me strength to persist in our faith until the moment of its recent glorious vindication.”

On 4 October 1963, Haile Selassie addressed the General Assembly of the United Nations referring in his address to his earlier speech to the League of Nations:

“Twenty-seven years ago, as Emperor of Ethiopia, I mounted the rostrum in Geneva, Switzerland, to address the League of Nations and to appeal for relief from the destruction which had been unleashed against my defenseless nation, by the fascist invader. I spoke then both to and for the conscience of the world. My words went unheeded, but history testifies to the accuracy of the warning that I gave in 1936. Today, I stand before the world organization which has succeeded to the mantle discarded by its discredited predecessor. In this body is enshrined the principle of collective security which I unsuccessfully invoked at Geneva. Here, in this Assembly, reposes the best – perhaps the last – hope for the peaceful survival of mankind.”

On 25 November 1963, the Emperor was among other heads of state, including France's President Charles de Gaulle, who traveled to Washington D.C. and attended the funeral of assassinated President John F. Kennedy.

In 1966, Haile Selassie attempted to create a modern, progressive tax that included registration of land, which would significantly weaken the nobility. Even with alterations, this law led to a revolt in Gojjam, which was repressed although enforcement of the tax was abandoned. The revolt, having achieved its design in undermining the tax, encouraged other landowners to defy Haile Selassie.

“A house built on granite and strong foundations, not even the onslaught of pouring rain, gushing torrents and strong winds will be able to pull down. Some people have written the story of my life representing as truth what in fact derives from ignorance, error or envy; but they cannot shake the truth from its place, even if they attempt to make others believe it.”

—Preface to My Life and Ethiopia's Progress, Autobiography of H.I.M. Haile Selassie I (English translation)

“That until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned: That until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation; That until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes; That until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race; That until that day, the dream of lasting peace and world citizenship and the rule of international morality will remain but a fleeting illusion, to be pursued but never attained and until the ignoble but unhappy regimes that hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique, and in South Africa in subhuman bondage have been toppled and destroyed; until bigotry and prejudice and malicious and inhuman self-interest have been replaced by understanding and tolerance and goodwill; until all Africans stand and speak as free human beings, equal in the eyes of the Almighty; until that day, the African continent shall not know peace. We Africans will fight if necessary and we know that we shall win as we are confident in the victory of good over evil.”

—English translation of 1963 Speech delivered to the United Nations and popularized in a song called "War" by Bob Marley.

“Apart from the Kingdom of the Lord there is not on this earth any nation that is superior to any other. Should it happen that a strong Government finds it may with impunity destroy a weak people, then the hour strikes for that weak people to appeal to the League of Nations to give its judgment in all Freedom…

God and history will remember your judgment.”

—Address to the League of Nations, 1936.

“We have finished the job. What shall we do with the tools?”

— Telegram to Winston Churchill, 1941.

“Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.

Today I stand before the world organization which has succeeded to the mantle discarded by its discredited predecessor.”

—In a speech to the United Nations.

“Misguided people sometimes create misguided ideas. Some of my ancestors were Oromo. How can I colonize myself?”

— In response to accusations by dissidents

“I have heard of that idea [i.e., of Haile Selassie being the reincarnation of Jesus Christ]. I also met certain Rastafarians. I told them clearly that I am a man, that I am mortal, and that I would be replaced by the oncoming generation, and that they should never make a mistake in assuming or pretending that the human being is emanated from a deity."

— Interview with Bill McNeil.

“A qualified man with vision, unmoved by daily selfish interests, will be led to right decisions by his conscience. In general, a man who knows from whence he comes and where he is going will co-operate with his fellow human beings. He will not be satisfied with merely doing his ordinary duties but will inspire others by his good example. You are being watched by the nation and you should realize that you will satisfy it if you do good; but if, on the contrary, you do evil, it will lose its hope and its confidence in you."

— 2 July 1963 – University Graduation

The United Nations issued an apology in 1975, the year of his death.

Would Such An Apology Be Delivered To Black America?

…I doubt It!

“A qualified man with vision, unmoved by daily selfish interests, will be led to right decisions by his conscience. In general, a man who knows from whence he comes and where he is going will co-operate with his fellow human beings. He will not be satisfied with merely doing his ordinary duties but will inspire others by his good example. You are being watched by the nation and you should realize that you will satisfy it if you do good; but if, on the contrary, you do evil, it will lose its hope and its confidence in you.

...Although the toils of wise people may earn them respect, it is a fact of life that the spirit of the wicked continues to cast its shadow on this world. The arrogant are seen visibly leading their people into crime and destruction. The laws of the League of Nations are constantly violated and wars and acts of aggression repeatedly take place... So that the spirit of the cursed will not gain predominance over the human race whom Christ redeemed with his blood, all peace-loving people should cooperate to stand firm in order to preserve and promote lawfulness and peace.”

~May It Never Again Wave The Insignia of Evil, Hatred, and Terror~
http://blackhistory.com/content/28271...

IT was no surprise to find folks like ‘The Frasier’s’ being among people who attended local and international events commemorating what many would call a terroristic act against nine congregants at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. They were among those who came from around the region for a candlelight vigil outside the St. Raymond of Penafort Church. More than two hundred and fifty gathered at Vernon Road and Williams Avenue in the Cedarbrook section of Mount Airy in Philadelphia. Many local motorists stopped by while honking their horns in total support of the outside gathering.

Louise Frasier stated that she has three sisters and a host of nieces and nephews currently living in South Carolina. She verbally espouses a great concern for their safety and the well-being of the younger relatives as well.

“My wife and I still have family in South Carolina,” adds Eugene Frasier. “I not only have ties with the AME Church in South Carolina, but I also graduated from Allen University where the pastor and the youngest church member who was killed graduated from there too. I lived through the bigotry and hatred, so I have righteous anger. I am here to get some solace because of the evil of racism.”

Reverend Christopher M. Walsh, Pastor of St. Raymond, listed the natural reactions that he noticed of most people. He said it was “normal to feel sad for the victims and their families and appropriate to celebrate them as Christian Heroes.”

He secondly acknowledged anger as a natural response after any traumatic experience.

The reverend thirdly pointed out the re-opening of old wounds, caused by the massacre, was especially traumatic for those who lived through the more overt southern segregation. Walsh also noted, according to a report by Arlene Edmunds of 21st Century Media News Service that many are particularly angry because they thought this type of racial animosity was behind them.

Rev. Walsh paused to remember each of the nine victims of the June 17, 2015 Charleston, S.C. Massacre.
The victims:
Rev. and State Senator Clementa Pinckney
Rev. Daniel Simmons
Rev. DePayne Middleton Doctor
Myda Thompson
Sharanda Coleman-Singleton
Ethel Lance
Cynthia Marie Graham Hurd

It was June 19, 1865, when the news reached enslaved Africans in Galveston, Texas, that they were freed during the Civil War by The Emancipation Proclamation that was issued in January 1863.
Thousands from Mount Airy, West Oak Lane, and Germantown converged on Germantown (The Great Road) Avenue for the festivities of the ‘Juneteenth Festival’ outside of local historic sites and landmarks such as the ‘Johnson House,’ a part of the ‘Underground Railroad.’

“Paying close attention to the ‘scuttle-butt,’ gossip, and rumors about, I remember hearing something about an occultist and his group back in history class. It was something about George Washington and a mystic back in the 16th or 17th century. It was during, I think, the French-American and British war of the colonies. The old mansions in Germantown reflect upon the general’s visit along with the French leader, Lafayette.

The mansions along ‘The Great Road’ held a complete and authenticated history of events from back then.
What I do know up to this point is what has been said, stored, and recorded:

~ “The Battle of Germantown” occurred at the Cliveden Manor. “It was also the country home of Pa. Chief Justice Benjamin Chew. On October 4, 1777, a British regiment occupied Cliveden and defended it from full assaults by the Colonials. Over 70 soldiers died on these grounds. Although it was an American defeat, Washington’s bold strategy helped to win French aid for the cause of independence.” – “The First Protest Against Slavery was here in 1688, at the home of Tunes Kunders, an eloquent protest was written by a group of German Quakers. Signed by Pastorius and three others, it preceded by 92 years Pennsylvania’s passage of the nation’s first state abolition law.” ~

What began as a summer retreat, to a colonial landmark, became the site of a viciously nasty war, “The Battle of Germantown.’ Many have wondered if this was an accident in history.
Cliveden Manor is a story of a colonial family, the servants, and its slaves.
Before William Penn and the Mayflower, the Native Americans lived on the land now known as the United States of America. Here in the northwest, the Philadelphia-Germantown area is where the Quakers settled to farm and establish businesses. They were mostly of German descent, hence the name Germantown.

This area was also a haven for runaway slaves. “The Underground Railroad” ran through this region of the country as well. There existed a number of “Safe-Houses” for escaped African-American Slaves (not known then as African Americans) such as, The Mennonite Meeting House and the Johnson House. The route to freedom for Black people often led to Canada, although a number of African descendants decided to settle in Germantown where they felt safe from persecution.”
“When There’s No More Room In Hell”

The Cheltenham NAACP held its ‘Annual Scholarship Banquet’ with a full house at the Flourtown Country Club on June 28th, 2015.
“Young People Are Truly The Instruments For Justice”
~Pastor Elijah Morris~

Brendan Boyle said that he was pleased to be among those from the Cheltenham area communities that he once considered affluent while growing up in Olney.
“I am honored the NAACP has invited me to speak,” said the D-13 U.S. Representative.

~ The Highlight of the Event was the Awarding of Scholarships~

“Instruments For Justice,” was most appropriate as the organization once again honored local students with Educational Achievement Awards and the NAACP Scholarship Awards as well as the Community Service Award.
The Educational Achievement Award is given to those who supervise the NAACP Essay Contest.

“The Cheltenham area branch of the NAACP believes that Black lives matter and all lives matter. We sincerely hope and believe that the foundation for better police-community relations has established and will continue to grow,” as recorded of Harvey Crudup in a booklet. He was unable to attend the event in person as scheduled.

The mission of the Cheltenham area branch of the NAACP is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economical equality of rights to all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial, ethnic, religious, and sexual orientation discrimination in Cheltenham, Jenkintown, Springfield, Plymouth Meeting, and Whitemarsh Townships.
The group’s objectives include ensuring equal rights, eliminating racial prejudice, removing barriers of racial discrimination from the democratic process and enacting as well as enforcing federal, state, and local civil rights laws. It seeks to inform the public of racial discrimination’s adverse as it seeks to eliminate it. It also has an educational arm helping those in the community be more aware of their constitutional rights and how to take lawful action to secure those, reports Edmunds.

~“The Dylan Roofs, The Ku Klux Klan, and racist rants on ’Facebook’ will not have the last word!”~

“How did you feel when you noticed someone of so-called celebrity status and disallowed contact for fear of ridicule or misplaced low self-esteem? “I know that person…he/she is the representative that I’ve seen on TV, Who Spoke at My Childs Graduation Ceremony, The Church, The Community Meeting, and the News Media!” You make the attempt to press the palm of the individual only to be dismissed as something just above an annoyance… insignificant. But the person in question is held to a higher standard…a hero, a role model, to be admired, respected someone that was supported at the poles and/or in the surroundings of ones’ home, among family and friends!

You got the opportunity to meet and greet this icon only to be waved off and or set aside. This individual will be courting your vote and/or your support the very next week as prerequisite to an upcoming campaign! He or She will want your undivided attention, your unyielding support, your utter and complete belief and allegiance to and for the cause…yes?

This situation was shared with a couple of friends and it was suggested not to take it personal. I take it personal when someone who sets him/her-self above the folks they profess to represent and then portray themselves as such while believing they can get away with being rude! Also, thinking the person of said contact is such that you are privileged to dismiss when it is such a person who is depended upon for belief and support of the movement and/or the betterment of all.”
“Are People of Color Subject To The NAACP?”
http://arepeopleofcolorsubjecttonaacp...

“Because white shipyard workmen would not allow him to work alongside them, the man who defeated Garnet's 'Call To Revolt' by a resolution calling for "Moral Suasion" was an escaped slave who taught himself to read and write. He went to work for the Anti-Slavery Society and became a famous speaker and writer. Though he opposed 'The Call To Revolt' in 1843 - By 1849 he was writing: "If there is no struggle, there is no progress. ...this struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical' but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will."
~Frederick Douglas~


~'Black American Freedom Fighters'~
http://blackamericanfreedomfighters.b...

“Nine African-American worshippers slaughtered June 17 by a stone-cold racist that they tried to inoculate with the “Almighty’s Healing Love,” said Obama. “They were having a bible-study session in the basement of the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church in Charleston, S.C.,” reported Don Scott of A Place In History, The Mt. Airy Times Express, July 10, 2015.
“I couldn’t help thinking of my Mom and Late Dad’s South Carolina ancestors,” said Scott. “I also thought of the nearby enslaved predecessors of the president’s wife, First Lady Michelle Obama.”

As the president continued speaking, he reiterated the strength of the AME Church and its legacy via such brave leaders as ‘Denmark Vesey’ who organized the ill-fated 1821-1822 slave rebellion with fellow Emanuel Congregants.
Bishop Richard Allen founded AME’s word-wide denominations. He was a visionary and exceptionally courageous African-American youngster. Chief Jurist Benjamin Chew owned Brother Richard Allen during the 1760s. Judge Chew operated huge estates in the mid-Atlantic region and nearby Germantown, where he lived in the ‘Cliveden Mansion.’ Chew was also the principle advisor to friend and fellow Quaker, William Penn. He was the state’s founder and a slave owner as well. They and their group(s) hypocritically sought religious and political freedom and independence from England for themselves.
Richard Allen not only experienced the inhumanity of bondage, he was very familiar with the ingrained institution of slavery in the Unites States of America’s South Carolina.
It was there where the confederacy and the movement to preserve slavery would be eventually ill-fated just about a century later by white supremacists caressing their traitorous rebel flag fluttering tragically and defiantly well after the civil war defeat in the 1860s.
In that environment, Blacks fought in every conceivable way against the institution of slavery. Barack Obama succinctly pointed out during the eulogy that eventually became so effectively adopted by the likes of Dr. Martin Luther King as well as others who spoke from the pulpit of the historic Emanuel AME; in their approach of utilizing God’s good and blessed grace.
Many along the way have been brutally murdered, not unlike the recent slaughter and destruction at Emanuel AME - albeit, their shear and utter bravery carved a path for the nation’s salvation that continues into and beyond today.

It is appalling how evil-hearted people can have the audacity to defend the so-called yet wretched and dishonored blood-soaked cloth of the infamous confederate flag.
Mr. Scott says ‘William of Willie Middleton (a.k.a. Bill Mitchell), who was undoubtedly quite familiar with that divisive rebel symbol. He first departed the “blistering boiler of South Carolina’s post-civil war hatred.
Willie Middleton briefly settled in Philadelphia’s suburban Roslyn in the Abington area in or about 1920.
Beaufort County, S.C. is where his family was owned by the Edwards family. This info is reported according to genealogy research that is likely tied to slave-holding dynasties run by the Middleton’s, ’Halls,’ and Calhoun’s,’ a family that more than likely exploited Willie’s father’s ancestors from upstate in Abbeville County.
Willie is Mr. Scott’s Grandfather; his mother’s father.

“Amazingly,” Scott writes, “a few members of those families actually signed the ‘Declaration of Independence, especially noteworthy to me as many Americans celebrate the Country’s Birthday, July 4, 1776. Indeed, those Africans – including the ancestors of the slain State Senator and Reverend Clementa Pinckney, of Emanuel AME were forced to work on the sprawling plantations of the white power brokers. They were not far from the First Lady Michelle Obama’s paternal ‘Gullah-Geechee’ ancestors, the Robinsons, who were enslaved in Georgetown, S.C.
In fact, Grandpa moved northward during one of the “Great Migration” of Blacks from the South (as did the Great-Grandparents of this reporting author – Winnsboro, S.C.) after working as a longshoreman on the docks of ‘Savannah, Ga.’ and ‘Charleston, S.C. before finding similar work on Philadelphia’s water-front, one of the few places where Black Men arriving from the so-called ‘Dixie’ could find work.

‘SHAMAN’ an excerpt from ‘FAIRMOUNT’:

/*
The medicine men and priests among the Indians were usually merely those men who thought more deeply and strenuously than the average men in the tribe. These thinkers tended to live among the more successful tribes. To think, one needed at least some time free from the chore of procuring food.
Native American tribes did not call their medicine people “shamans.” This is a New Age term often misapplied to Native American Spiritual Leaders by people of European descent, self-professed “medicine” people and their followers.

Native Americans, New Agers, and charlatans alike have radically augmented and revised the tenets of traditional Native American religions. “Crystal skull caretakers” sit beside Native American medicine men and medicine women, shamans and priests, and “Star Beings,” rather than buffalo, are pondered. Outraged Native Americans have entered this fray, castigating those they see exploiting traditional Native American spirituality.

These medicine men or spiritual leaders were in a different class than the other men of their tribe. This special status was not dependent on their hunting and fishing. Contact with other tribes enabled thinkers to build and expand their belief frameworks, so medicine men or spiritual leaders were more prevalent in tribes that were accessible to outsiders.

As contemporary Native American religious flowerings are best understood by first examining the origins of Native American Spirituality, all of the contemporary sects are best comprehended in light of the traditional religions. As these differ from their New Age and Christian versions, each group is also unique compared to other traditional sects. These traditional sects are best understood as a conglomerate by investigating a few individual traditional Native American religions.

Chief Gerald Glenn, the Medicine Man, was second only to the chief in importance and standing within his tribal group. His duties involved both religious interpretations and pharmacology. A good medicine man became adept at both and as a result, he was often thought of as one who possessed magical powers. Before William Penn’s holy experiment, human impact in the Pocono Mountains by Native Americans and European settlers was minimal.

The Pennsylvania Mountains was one of the last colonies to be settled in the northern region of the state. The region remained wilderness until pressure from European settlers caused and influx of Native Americans from Maryland and the Carolinas’. Glenn, a direct descendent of the Lenape Chieftain of the Penn and Lenape Peace Treaty, 1682, Chief Tammany who died in 1718, was his great-great-grandfather. His wife, a Huron Princess, reared sons who took over as Chief of Nations along the Delaware Water Gap. They lived in peace with the residents of Stroudsburg, founded by Jacob Stroud in 1799.

The villages of the mountains raised buckwheat and rye, a big crop with potatoes, maze, oats, cattle, sheep, and hogs. Chief of his village as well as Chief of the Northeastern regional Forestry and Parks Services, Ranger Captain Glenn; like his, people are also members of the Northwestern Indian Confederacy in the Mountains of Pennsylvania, New York, and Canada. The tribal members are The Cree, The Creek, The Ottawa, The Seminole, The Huron, The Cherokee, The Algonquian, The Ojibwa, The Shawnee, and The Lenape Nations. Glenn continues his leadership in the protection of his people, their land, their tribal beliefs, and their heritage. Glenn’s mother was of Creek/Seminole descent while his father was the Tribal Chief of The Shawnee-Lenape (Munsee-Minisink) of Ontario Canada and the Poconos.

Willice Samuel’s family arrived up North from Georgia by way of Winnsboro, South Carolina. The family settled in Coatesville Pennsylvania, in or about April 1911. Willice’s Great-Great Grandfather talked about a lynching and burned at the stake murder of a Black Man by a mob of white men who wore masks. He said the Black Man; named Zachariah Walker was accused of shooting to death a white cop; named Edgar Rice. He was supposed to have been a special police officer in Coatesville. He went on to say, “The Colored Man was chased and treed in the woods in or near the Robert Faddis Woods near Youngsburg.

The Black Man tried to shoot himself in the head, but failed. They took the Black Man to the hospital were his injuries were treated. A gang of white men broke the window in the main hallway, corralled the police officer guarding him and dragged the Black Man from his sick bed to the Sarah Jane Newland Farm just to the right of the road and almost directly opposite the farmhouse. In a grass field about fifty feet from the road, they gathered dried Chestnut Rails and old fencing to build a fire. It took all of three minutes to get the fire up to a height of ten feet or more. They asked him if he had any last words…he didn’t. He was then thrown into the fire. The flames burned his clothes and seared his flesh – he managed to leap from the fire-pile and jump over a fence. They caught him and tied a rope around his neck and dragged him back onto the burning fire. Walker tried two more times to get out of the bonfire. He tried to get out of the seething furnace of hell. But he was beaten and pulled him back on the burning pile with each try.”

Great-Great-Grandpa continued on with the graphic details. “The sickening smell of burning flesh permeated the air. Folks came from all around to see and take pictures of the burning Black Man. They laughed and drank liquor. Their children had fun too. This all happened on or around Saturday April 12, 1911…we packed and moved to Philadelphia.” The Willice’s are descendants of America’s lucrative Industry of Black Slavery.

After settling in South Philly with his wife, Emma Lou, Grandpop Willie and their nearly a dozen children; including Scott’s Mom, they attended Mother Bethel Church, the original AME Sanctuary founded by and with the courage of ‘Richard Allen.’ He motivated our people to organize a Black Congregation after he and fellow Blacks were discriminated against at the St. George’s Methodist Church in Downtown Philadelphia, Pa.
Brother Allen’s cause and mission was so great and mighty that he inspired African Americans and other people of color and not in the most distant lands and places as far away as South Africa to Philadelphia’s City and surrounding Suburb of Montgomery County, where several AME Churches thrive to this very day.

Of course, as we all are well aware, there are folks who argue that the confederate flag is simply or just a proud symbol of heritage and that history regarding such matters has no relevancy today.
Sadly, that murdering racist in God’s Emanuel AME Temple wore patches of South Africa’s extinct apartheid regime-system of so-called ‘white-supremacy.’ Pulling the trigger of his gun exacerbated and magnified the growing international nature of his disease and depravity.

None of the perpetrators were ever sought out or successfully captured and/or protected for a crime that happened near the same fields and lands that Brother Scott and My family-ancestors were kept in brutal bondage while struggling to survive, fighting tooth-and-nail for a better day with the scorching flames of hatred all about them.
Benjamin F. Randolph, also a state senator and reverend, fought for Black Rights; gave a presentation at Brother Pinckney’s Emanuel AME Church in Charleston.
Following the civil war in which he served as a Chaplain of the 26th United States Colored Troops, he was brutally assassinated at an Abbeville, S.C. train station upstate where three white men, right out in the light of day, approached and blew him away in a fashion of vile and villainous cold and treacherous blood.

‘The Rails, Some Hemp, and A Hanging’

/*
The Sun hadn’t risen to light up the world this morning. This pain-in-the-ass of a war has proven fruitless. It has put us all in a terrible bind. The ‘Blue-Bellies’ outside were laughing and joking right under the window of my jail-cell window. And as I recall, I think I could see several ‘darky’s’ planting, plowing, picking, and singing in the distance. The damned ‘Yankees’ have taken all that belongs to us…

A couple, maybe three of four birds chirped and sang in the distance. There could not have been any more than that, I’m sure. The Yankee soldiers outside reveled in their mastery while enjoying the aromatic scents of ‘Hemp’ and ‘Moonshine.’ There was no other way to get liquor other than someone making it themselves. There was no store-bought liquor to be had for miles in any direction.

The company had its share of ‘shiner’s’ on both sides of the war-torn fences. Their horses bayed and pranced in the cold damp yet dark beginning of the day’s morn. My hanging tribunal was short and to the point. My foolish guilt could not be reversed, albeit, my hatred for these ‘Blue-Coats’ and their Black supporters surpasses my pain and sorrowful agony. I do long for the fragrance and joys of home… My dear sweet ‘Abbey,’ my darling wife and young’uns; my plantation and memories of France cut at my brain.

In France I was broke, poor, and penniless… Here in South Louisiana, I have become rich, powerful, and wholesome. I have more than a hundred acres of land manned by two-hundred and eighty-five of the best young and strong Black livestock in the territory. Four hundred head of cattle graze on my lands. The farmyard houses chickens, geese, ducks, pork, and several dozen head of living horse flesh along with a few dogs and cats. I am a very wealthy man indeed.

These invaders, these usurpers, these Black-defenders who have confiscated our properties…must all return to their northern domains and domiciles or die. We have made and taken great lengths and efforts to drive them out. They will not relinquish our belongings…they will lose theirs!
Cowards and subordinates have taken the places of my one time friends and neighbors. They have cravingly crept into running, hiding, and collaborating with the disciples of the leader of reform, abolition, and reverse slavery for white land owners and the young’uns. I sir, will not allow it, not at all. Someone ought to put a bullet in the head of that tall and long bearded charlatan in that ‘White-House’ Capital of theirs!

I will fight them to my last breath. I will spit on thee and kill thee upon sight of your blue coats. Bounties have been imposed on you white folks who hire, save, utilize, employ, and/or hide any Black run-away slaves or so-called Union Soldiers. I will kill them, and kill them until I can kill them no more. I will shoot their horses, cook their dogs and livestock…and hang anyone who interferes. Their buildings, houses, transportation, bridges, and trestles are game subjects for the targeting of my wrath and abhorrence for their tyranny! Resistance will not be futile.

Did I kiss my wife and daughters this morning? I, for the life of me do not recall. I cannot remember!
The drifting tufts of the smoking hemp are most gratifying… I’d like a pipe-full. My pipe-full, did I leave it on the terrace table next to my comforting rocking-chair? I do believe that I have. I left it for my return to relaxation once the bridge is blown. That will stop the intrusion, the advancement of these ‘nigger-lovers’ from coming down here, through here.

The morning…its’ beginning was indeed ominous. It was strangely and mysteriously overcast with heavy thick clouds of gray and dulling-whiteness overhead. One bird made a noise that I could hear. The keys of the jail-house door clang and rattled. No breakfast did I receive; no water for washing or drinking was permitted either.

The voiceless ‘Blue-Bellies’ had come for me. It was a time to reflect my misgivings. Do I have any? I wonder. The coldness of the morn and the trembling of my fear, have caused me apprehension to begin the procession to the bridge. I did resist. I did struggle against them, my enemies. But it was all for naught. And then I complied with their directions. We marched from the jail-house toward the desolation of the ‘Owl Creek Bridge.’

A Posted Warning:

‘ORDER…ANY CIVILIAN CAUGHT INTERFERING WITH THE RAILROAD BRIDGES, TUNNELS, OR TRAINS WILL BE SUMMARILY HANGED!’

~This 12 of April 1862~

The posted sign warned all who would keep men as slaves while opposing a right and just law. But this stalwart southerner, tried to blow up ‘The Owl Creek Bridge’ anyway.
“Yes, something occurred at ‘The Owl Creek Bridge’ one morning during the war. It was a chilly, misty, and cloudy one at that.

I was a private when we hung em.” The officer continued on with his recollection. “He was defiant as hell, right up until the end, well, least ways when we put that ‘hemp-rope’ around his neck. We tied his legs and feet so’s they won’t kick and flail. He cried. We then stood his cowardly ass atop a nice new plank…and dropped him like a sack of ‘tatter’s’ in the drink. Lucky for him there was no ‘gators’ swimming about.”

The drum-roll sounded. A bugle blew the morning ‘reviles.’ An owl was heard hooting just as I heard the commander bark the order:

‘First squad, stand-fast! Forward hupp!’

Then, the sound of marching boots…including those which covered my feet. The owl began to sound like a child’s whistle, a flute, or maybe a turtle-dove.

The first Sergeant; with my eyes I did see him un-winding and unraveling the knotted hemp. This was being done in preparation for the perfect noose-fitting around my neck. It simply did fit just perfectly.

Wet from perspiration, my jet-black, long wavy hair did drip the sweat all over me. Blowing through was the wind, but not through the dead looking, leafless trees all around. They just stood there staring at me, laughing at me without an ounce of pity or sorrow; the dead looking, and lifeless gray things. They appeared to be burnt wistful embers of black, gray, and white sinews.
The snow fell from the sky a few days ago. I trembled. I heard my pocket-watch tick…
“Take his watch!” A voice ordered. It was taken away as I stood backward upon a fresh new plank of wood.

Was I dreaming this horrible thing? Abbey, Abbey, my dear darling ‘Abigail.’ Am I not home with you and the babies, my darling? Do I feel the warmth of our bed and the tender bliss of our happiness?

‘A living man, I want to be a living man…’ My dearest, I am with thee, I see thee – I do; I feel thee.
~ ‘A livin man, a livin man… I wants to be a livin man.
In all da world, he moves around, he walks around, he turns around…
I sees each tree, I reads each vein, I hears each worm upon each leaf…
The buzzing flies, the splashing fish, they moves around this livin man…
A livin man, a livin man – I want to be a ‘Living Man.’~

“At ten-hut!” shouted the commanding officer. I cried some more… Plunging down, down, and further down into the cold, cold drink, I was suddenly shocked. The cold icy-water pulled me straight to the bottom. My shiny new black knee-high boots filled with creek liquid. I was forced to part with them once I was free of my bonds. The fish gazed and gawked from in front of me and from behind every crevice. I hurriedly swam to the top for air. At the surface, there was plenty to be had.
I heard the birds singing and chirping. I saw the flowers and blooming blossoms on the trees. A beautiful spider was mending her web as a wondrous green frog leaped from one leaf to another… A shot splashed close to my left ear. I saw the soldiers up on the train’s bridge. They were training their weapons upon me…they are going to shoot me, to kill me!

They were steadily shouting at me as I quickly swam away. I swam very fast as though my life depended on it. I outswam their bullets. Under the water, the fish and a tortoise joined me in the trek. I surfaced for air and swam a bit further. A ‘Cottonmouth’ saw me and wiggled in my direction. Diving beneath him allowed an avoidance. They kept shooting at me with handguns, rifles, and cannons. The hemp was still about my neck. Somehow, it had broken from the fall off the bridge.

“He must be hanged! Sergeant, give the order to open fire!”

“Yes sir!”

“If it’s necessary, fire the cannon as well!”

“PRESENT YOUR ARMS! STAND FAST MEN! STEADY MEN, STEADY…AIM, FIRE! HE MUSTN’T ESCAPE! THERE HE IS…HE’S STILL MOVING. HE WON’T GET FAR. HE’S LIKE A RAT IN A TRAP… IN A TRAP, A TRAP, A TRAP! FIRE AT WILL!”

They continued firing and reloading. The bullets and shells hit all around me in the water. The more I swam, the lesser the fire-power. The white-water rapids were now upon me. They threw me this way and that way, hither and fro…they carried me closer and closer towards home.

The forest changed from cold dead limbs to lively and beautiful green leaves with healthy foliage upon the ground. I ran heavily through the fields and into the woods. I ran and ran for what seemed like endless hours. The gunshots and cannon-fire drowned and disappeared in the distance behind me. Then suddenly a familiar pathway opened up in front of me. It pointed, beckoned to me to come hither. The trees, the tallest redwoods or dogwoods that I’ve ever seen stood on either side of the roadway. Wagon traffic must have traversed these woodlands. The pathway was worn well. I ran and ran some more…I ran toward home.

It was familiar, yet it was not. The twenty foot tall wrought-iron double gates stood closed at the end of the pathway. They opened wide upon my approach and closed tightly behind me after I’d passed through. I kept on running, running towards home.
My shoeless feet bled as I began to walk. I’d fallen from running. I was tired but rejuvenated with my new found freedom. I began to skip through the pussy-willows. I then saw it. The multiple tall white columns that adorned the veranda was a welcomed sight indeed. My heart jumped and skipped with gladness. The porch, upon which my rocking-chair sat, the table whose top kept good my corn-cobb pipe filled to the brim with the best flavored hemp, accompanied by a bowl of my savory smoking tobacco. Next to it was my little brown jug.

The mansion’s multi-paned windows gleamed in the bright and warm sunlight. The immaculate and tasteful clothing that I wore were now tattered, dirty, and full of filth. They were shredded to mere rags. I did not care. I was home.

There she is, there she comes… My dear sweet and most beautiful Abbey. I could hear my children laughing and playing…she ran to me – for me…Abigail, my loving wife.

She saw me running toward her. I could not get there soon enough, fast enough. My rags flittered in the racing wind. What was left of my once magnificently embroidered vest simply hung from my shoulders? My pantaloons were mere shreds about my hips and thighs…I did not care. I was finally and completely home!
She reached for me and hugged me. She kissed and caressed me. She held me tightly. I felt her breast upon mine. I felt her warm and full lips upon mine. Her heartbeat was strong as she held me fast and firm. I was home – fully and completely home.

“This is strange dear Abbey…it’s eerily and suddenly quiet. Where are the ‘darkies?’” She quietly smiled. Her pearly white teeth and ruby red lips simply smiled at me. Her beautifully long thick black hair flowed with a sudden gust of wind as she kissed me once more.
“To bed my dear…I wish to bed thee now. It seems like it’s been so long since we’ve made beautiful love. The warmth of you and our bed will feel oh so very delightful, indeed.
Where are the children – where are all the animals?”

She hugged and kissed me some more…and simply smiled as we turned toward the house and the bedroom.
I was happy, oh so very happy and relieved.
I began to cough…it grew worse and would not stop. Abbey smiled and reached for me with open arms and a deliciously delightful kiss that I did not, could not receive. The pain in my neck…on how painful it was.

“My ears heard a pop and a snap while my eyes beheld the bridge full of soldiers above and the cold murky water flowing below… The steady swinging portrayed the cold gray sky and the wispy willows of the dead and lifeless land …all about.
My mind’s ear heard singing. It was the voice of a Black singing an old familiar song of the south. Was this sound also a dream?”
~
‘A livin man, a livin man, I wants to be a livin man…
In all da world, he moves around, he walks around…
I sees each tree, I reads each vein, I hears each worm upon each leaf…
The buzzin flies, the splashin fish, they moves around this livin man…
a livin man, a livin man – I want to be a ‘Living man!’ ~
~
Peyton Farguhar was just plain stupid. He was not a soldier nor was he involved in the activities of the war. He was a civilian southern plantation owner with a family and the owner of slaves.
Peyton was a secessionist who wanted to be a soldier. He wanted to strike a blow for the sovereign states of the south.

Farguhar suckered himself into involvement by acting on an opportunity to fulfill his wish.
“I’ll blow up the damned bridge!” He was warned not to take action on his own by participants of the horrible conflict and that of his close friends. After his capture and sentencing, he dreamed of home and family like so many of the Black slaves once did, the people he despised, with his neck in a noose.

The bridge intended for destruction, stood over ‘Owl Creek,’ bearing the plank that bared the weight of the doomed believer of the confederacy. Peyton Farguhar wished that he’d remained at home.

In light of the tragedies and unjust travesties world-wide, I would profoundly concur with our poignant Brother Scott; “finding ourselves secure in the “Amazing Grace” of love, hope, and sacrifice of the remarkable power of our people.” In all of the pain and persecution endured, blessed with the existence of Emanuel AME, Multi-Racial Church Communities, Supportive Organizations of Word-Wide Denominations endeavoring to persevere in the eradication, annihilation, and slaughtering of injustice – now and forever… Amen!

Today there is chaos, wars, starvation, greed, envy, betrayal and mistrust among the populace and the nations of the world. It is said by many, the prophet shall surely return to this world.

“Ignorance Is Not Bliss!”

…It Is The Lock On The Gate of Truth and Happiness.

TheSpiritoftheSoul_1.11.12

By

Gregory V. Boulware

https://boulwareenterprises.wordpress...

http://thebookmarketingnetwork.com/pr...


“Oh My God – They’ve Towed My (blanking) Car Away! We’ve Got To Get The Hell Out Of The City Before It’s Too Late!”


Two Cops greeted one another and spoke aloud.

“Damn, we’ve got to stand out there for twelve (blanking) hours! I don’t know if I can stand on my feet for twelve hours over two days let alone three. But, that’s going to be some good damned money for sure! …I’ll see ya later, maybe out there on the street hopefully near the Pontiff.”

And still, another woman who happened to be Black, complains aloud, were others could hear:

“I’m so damned tired of hearing about this (blanking) Pope. Every time the TV is on, that’s all you see and hear about! I’m tired of hearing about Him and His damned visit to the city! I wish he’d go the hell back to Italy or wherever the hell he’s come from!”

~ Is this a refusal of Heavenly Knowledge and Wisdom, Refusing The Word of God? ~


A young Philadelphia person commented when asked about the Pope’s visit.

“It’s okay for Him to visit, but man, all this for one little old man?”

And yet still, another comment espoused from the mouth of a Philadelphia woman.

“…They don’t do all that (security, structure creation, ticket sales, train accommodations, massive pedestrian and motor traffic closures, etc.) for the President! Why do they have to do it for the Pope?”

It Is Written:

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee that thou shalt be no priest to me; seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy Elohim, I will also forget thy children.”

~ Hosea (Husea) 4:6 ~



‘Yahushua – Suffering Servant, Conquering King’

Appropriation: (Noun)

The action of taking something from one’s own use, typically without the owner’s permission

‘Two kingdoms were neighbors, the kingdom of the almighty ‘Yah,’ House of Yah’Qob and Kemet, in the evil kingdom known as Egypt.

They shared the same race with the House of Yah’Qob now scattered among the nations of the world.’

‘Arabs invaded North Africa in the 5th century and became the majority in Egypt. Blacks became the minority. Europeans invaded America, the Land of Indigenous Native Americans who became the minority.’

“The World Meeting of Families” has attracted many religious groups, Pilgrims, and especially Catholics from around the world.

Visitors were highly excited to tour around town before, during, and after the Pope’s visit and religious mass, Saturday and Sunday (Sept. 24th – 27th, 2015). Residents were worried about parking tickets and excessive towing.

Was this major event meant for the citizens of Philadelphia? It would appear not, since Philadelphians were mainly the ones suffering the consequences – catching all the hell.

It, the plan, stretched over months of preparing; months of head scratching and scheming over contracts, vendors, and businesses, the ‘eggheads’ and ‘double-domes’ finally agreed to a whopping price tag of twelve million plus dollars. It should have been truly stated and posted at about five hundred million dollars. They said it would boost the economy base of the city’s businesses, hotels, and restaurants.

Obviously, to host this large event on a global scale, massive expenditures of resources; human capital, real estate, and dollars; denizens of the county and borough(s) have dreaded this extraordinary move for a long time coming. The masses of this city simply haven’t been the type to embrace such a maddening crowd, particularly those residing closely around the Art Museum and Center City areas like ‘Fairmount,’ the West Philly area near 52nd Street and City Avenue, and all along the Papal Travel Route.

For the love of ‘The Phillies,’ ‘The Eagles,’ ‘The Sixers,’ ‘Cheese-Steaks,’ and ‘Hoagies,’ this city is one of the poorest major metros in the country. Hospitality afficianados and city officials acted as though the hotels were being maxed out – no empty beds – sold out! It didn’t happen. Special transportation passes were expected to be all sold out while hundreds remained available for sale. Schools, Official offices, and City Services were closed. Philly’s residents packed and left town in droves because of this massive influx of bodies from across the land and around the globe.

This author entertained no plans to leave town or to be affected by this moment as it relates to the Papal visit, or assailing influx. For my fortune and that of my immediate family, our aboding areas of the city, suffered no real compounding affect other than news of mass closings, alterations, and detours.

I have also never supported, entertained, nor embraced the religious beliefs or practices supported by the ‘Roman Catholic Church,’ it’s embodied principles or potential impressions of past and future corruptions perpetrated upon the many different people and/or victims across the globe; it’s past Papal leaders as well. Pope Francis’ predecessors, some of them, may very well have meant well, but the condoned attack and condemnation of and upon The Good King James and that of his family, has left a bad taste in my mouth. However, I am impressed by this current Pope, and his words. That of his deeds remains to be seen.

(The Hebrew – James Charles Stuart of Edinburg, Scotland, born June nineteenth, Fifteen Hundred and Sixty-Six, Great Britain’s Solomon, a Three Throne King – Scotland, England, and Ireland; authorized the text contained within the Holy Bible – Cambridge Studies and the Official Signet according to the recordings of Oxford University, 1611, ‘The Apocrypha’ in His Book, “The Reunion of Christendom”)

I do like this New Pope…

“They shall prophecy a thousand two hundred and three score days, clothed in sackcloth.”

During the greater part of this period, God’s witnesses remained in a state of obscurity. The Papal Power sought to hide from the people the word of truth, and set before them false witnesses to contradict testimony.

When the bible was proscribed by religious and secular authority; when its testimony was perverted, and every effort made that men and demons could invent to turn the minds of the people from it; when those who dared proclaim it’s sacred truths were hunted, betrayed, tortured, buried in dungeon cells, martyred for their faith, of compelled to flee to mountain fastness’s, and to dens and caves of the Earth – then the faithful witnesses prophesized in sackcloth. Yet, they continued their testimony throughout the entire period of twelve hundred and sixty years. In the darkest times there were faithful men/women who loved God’s word and were jealous for his honor. To these loyal servants were given wisdom, power, and authority to declare His truth during the whole of this time.”

“When they shall have finished their testimony” – the period when the two witnesses were to prophesy clothed in sackcloth, ended in 1798. As they were approaching the termination of their work in obscurity, war was to be made upon them by the power represented as “The Beast That Ascendeth Out of The Bottomless Pit.”

In many of the nations of Europe, the powers that ruled in Church and State had for centuries been controlled by Satan through the medium of the Papacy. But here is brought to view a new manifestation of Satanic power. It had been policy under a profession of reverence for the Bible, to keep it locked up in and unknown tongue and hidden away from the people. Under her rule the witnesses prophesized “clothed in sackcloth.” But another power – the beast from the bottomless pit – was to arise to make open, avowed war upon ‘The Word of God.’

“The Greatest City” in whose streets the witnesses are slain, and where their dead bodies lie, is “Spiritually” Egypt. Of all nations presented in bible history, Egypt most boldly denied the existence of ‘The Living God’ and resisted his commands. No monarch ever ventured upon more open and highhanded rebellion against the authority of Heaven than did the King of Egypt. When the message was brought him by Moses/Moshe, in The Name of The Lord, Pharaoh proudly answered:

“Who is Jehovah/Yahushua that I should hearken unto His voice to let Israel go? I know not Jehovah/Yahushua, and moreover, I will not let Israel go!”

~ Exodus 5:2 ~

This is atheism, and the nation represented by Egypt would give voice to a similar denial of the claims of The Living God and would manifest a like spirit of unbelief and defiance. “The Great City” is also compared, “spiritually,” to Sodom. The corruption of Sodom in breaking ‘The Law of God’ was especially manifested in licentiousness. And this sin was also to be a preeminent characteristic of the nation that should fulfill the specifications of this scripture.

According to the words of the prophet, then, a little before the year 1798 some power of Satanic origin and character would rise to make war upon the Bible. And in the land where the testimony of God’s two witnesses should thus be silenced, there would be manifest the atheism of the Pharaoh and the licentiousness of Sodom.” *

Pope Francis mentioned America’s history, a country made up of ‘immigrants.’ He said it should not be put off by the number of foreigners, especially those from Latin America, who are trying to make a new home.

He spoke with harsh rhetoric toward illegal immigrants who are featured heavily in the race for the republican presidential election. He’s brought a message to America’s power and wealth which should be used to serve humanity by feeding and caring for the poor and helpless. He further added, the United States must not turn its back on “The Stranger in Our Midst.”

The leader of the Roman Catholic Church called for a more equitable economy, greater effort against climate change and an end to the death penalty across the globe.

Thus God’s People, exposed to the deceptive power and unsleeping malice of the Prince of Darkness, and in conflict with all the forces of evil, are assured of the unceasing guardianship of ‘Heavenly Angels;’ nor is such assurance given without need. If God has granted to His children promise of grace and protection, it is because there are mighty agencies of evil to be met – agencies numerous, determined, and untiring, of whose malignity and power none can safely be ignorant or unheeding.

Evil spirits, in the name beginning created sinless, were equal in nature, power, and glory with the Holy Beings that are now God’s messengers. But fallen through sin, they are leagued together for the dishonor of God and the destruction of men:

United with Satan in his rebellion, and with him, cast out from Heaven, they have, through all succeeding ages, co-operated with him in his warfare against the divine authority. We are told in scriptures of their confederacy and government, of their various orders, of their intelligence and subtlety, and of their malicious designs against the peace and happiness of men.

Christ had come to enter upon the plan devised for men’s redemption, and Satan determined to assert his right to control the world. He had succeeded in establishing idolatry in every part of the Earth except the land of ‘Palestine.’

To only they who had not fully yielded to ‘The Tempter’s Sway,’ Christ came to shed upon people the light of Heaven. Here two rival powers claimed supremacy. Jesus was stretching out his arms of love, inviting all who would to find pardon and peace in Him.

The hosts of darkness saw that they did not possess unlimited control, and they understood that if Christ’s mission should be successful, their rule was soon to end. Satan raged like a chained lion and defiantly exhibited his power over the bodies as well as the souls of men.

The fact that men have been possessed with demons is clearly stated, in the new testament. The persons thus afflicted were not merely suffering with disease from natural causes. Christ had perfect understanding of that which He was dealing, and He recognized the direct presence and agency of evil spirits.

‘One of the demons controlling the sufferers declared:

“My Name is Legion: For We Are Many!”

~ Mark 5:9 ~

In the Roman army a legion consisted of from three to five thousand men. Satan’s hosts also are marshaled in companies, and the single company to which these demons belonged numbered no less than a legion.’

The purposes of Christ where not thwarted in allowing the evil spirits to destroy a herd of swine in rebuking those ‘Jews’ who were raising these unclean beasts for the sake of gain.

The Saviour desired His followers to have knowledge of the foe whom they were to meet; that they might not be deceived and overcome by his devices. It is also His will that the people should behold His power to break the bondage of Satan.

None are in greater danger from the influence of evil spirits than those who, notwithstanding the direct and ample testimony of the scriptures, deny the existence and agency of the devil and his angels.

So long as we are ignorant of their wiles, they have almost inconceivable advantage; many give heed to their suggestions while they suppose themselves to be following the dictates of their own wisdom.

Satan is at work with the greatest power to deceive and destroy, he spreads everywhere the belief that he does not exist.

We carefully secure our houses with bolts and locks to protect our property and our lives from evil men; but we seldom think of the evil angels who are constantly seeking access to us, and against whose attacks we have, in our own strength, no method of defense. Their only delight is in misery and destruction.

‘Certain Death – Death is Certain!’

“Man left to himself would have been one among the beasts, not different from the life in the wilderness, save in his physical form and some instinctive habits.”

~ Holy Qur’an ~

‘The wicked ones cannot break through the guard which God has stationed about His People.’

~ Agency of Evil Spirits / Snares of Satan ~

The Controversy Between Good and Evil – How Will It All End?

“Those who cannot / will not learn from history are doomed to repeat it!”

Once again, a messenger has been sent to us with words of profound measure. Did we hear ‘The Word of God?’

His Majesty, Brother King James, who authorized the Bible Recordings for our benefit, sacrificed his life and that of his family so that we could know and covet the truth, forever. He was cut down for being Black as well as attempting to present and preserve “The Word of God!”

Regardless of Pope Francis’ predecessors and his representation of the Roman Catholic Church, I couldn’t fight the feeling of this man’s sincerity in truly caring for and loving all of the people who have been downtrodden, poor, and cast aside by the so-called affluent, rich, and greedy minority. The question I once heard and have never quite forgotten:

“How could so few control so many?”

His words offered inspiration, encouragement, and concurrence with ‘The Word of God’ and many of this reporter’s published text. His deeds and that of the Papacy remain to be seen.

“In a world full of hatred, child molestation, cloak and dagger churches, corrupted villainous priests, vile politicians, conniving entrapping marketeers, all out vicious murder, thievery, indecency, and blatant contempt for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; mankind has lost sight of goodness and the commandments of God and the simple love of his brethren.

Where are we going – what is to become of humankind?

There is only one path that remains for the salvation of humanity…”

‘Do Not Talk The Talk If You Do Not Walk The Walk!’

‘The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;

He leadeth me beside still waters.

He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of

Righteousness for His name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I shall fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff shall comfort me.

Thou prepares a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou

anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and

I will dwell in the house of The Lord forever.’



~ Spirit of The Soul and The Death of Morals ~



“God took dust from the ground, and formed man, and inserted in him a spirit and a soul. This man was called “Adam,” which in the Hebrew tongue signifies one that is ‘Red,’ because he was formed out of Red Earth (Africa), compounded together; for of that kind is virgin and True Earth!”

~ Josephus – Moshe/Moses ~


“Trees”

I think that I shall never see

A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest

Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,

And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear

A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;

Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,

But only God can make a tree.

~Joyce Kilmer~


The Twelve Tribes of Israel The twelve (Lost) tribes of Israel are mentioned in Revelation, chapters 7 and 21. Their mention is far more than a “curiosity” (as it is treated in most studies of Revelation.) Rather, God’s prophetic plan through history and concluding in Revelation centers on Israel, as represented by the twelve sons of Jacob and their progeny. There are several important points to take note of in their history that help explain what God’s plan for them (and the world) is all about.

“One of Many Great African Kings!”

“Ghana was influenced by Arab traders and was actually divided into two towns, one being Muslim, the other housing the king and traditional society. The traditional society was pagan and worshipped idols. However, many of the king’s officials were Muslim so Arabic writing was used to record information. Also, Arab architecture, such as mosques, were present in the Muslim town.

Although some schools were in existence, much of the education was passed down through “Griots,” or storytellers. In the evening, people would gather around to hear the Griots and would learn about their traditions.”

“Bowery of The Crimson Frock and Flesh”
http://boweryofthecrimsonfrockandfles...

“Coincidences, seemingly of a marvelous character, there are few persons who have not, on occasion, been startled. It also goes without saying; even the calmest of thinkers have experienced a vague thrilling half-credence in the supernatural genre.

Speaking of certain, albeit, limited, coincidences, understand that we, Mr. ‘Eddie’ Poe and I, the Editor / Publisher, choose to speak of this topic. In my own heart, I cannot speak of his; there dwells no faith in the praetor nature. In past and probably, future conversations, men will debate the issue of the original intentions of God’s Laws. They may dispute that nature and its God are two. The latter creating the former can, at will, control and/or modify it. Would you not agree, my friend? The insanity of logic has, of course, assumed it is not that the Deity cannot modify his laws, the question is of will. Does man insult God with the imagination of a possible necessity for modification? Mr. Poe espouses the origin of these laws were fashioned to embrace all and every contingency which could lie in the future. All that one would need to do is to pay the strictest and closes attention with unwavering indulgences.

This topic is only referred to as coincidences. It was submitted for my review as ‘Bowery of the Crimson Frock and Flesh - The Poe Report.’”

~Salah Al-Din~
By
Gregory V. Boulware, Esq.
http://blackhistory.com/content/28840...

Salah Al-Din Street, one of East Jerusalem's major shopping and commerce thoroughfares, is named for the first Sultan of Egypt and Syria. A Muslim of Kurdish origin, is known for his fight against the Crusaders, namely in the battle of Hattin.

Not long after the death of Nur ad-Din in 1174, Saladin personally led the conquest of Syria, peacefully entering Damascus at the request of its governor. By mid-1175, Saladin had conquered Hama and Homs, inviting the animosity of his former Zengid lords, who had been the official rulers of Syria. Soon after, he defeated the Zengid army in battle and was thereafter proclaimed the "Sultan of Egypt and Syria" by the Abbasid caliph al-Mustadi. He made further conquests in Northern Syria and Jazira, escaping two attempts on his life by the Assassins, before returning to Egypt in 1177 to address issues there. By 1182, Saladin completed the conquest of Syria after capturing Aleppo, but ultimately failed to take over the Zengid stronghold of Mosul.

Sala ad-Din Yusuf ibn Ayyub (Arabic: Kurdish: or Selahedînê Eyûbî) (1137/1138 – March 1193), better known in the Western world as Saladin, was the first Sultan of Egypt and Syria and the founder of the Ayyubid dynasty. A Muslim of Kurdish origin, Saladin led the Muslim opposition to the European Crusaders in the Levant. At the height of his power, his sultanate included Egypt, Syria, Mesopotamia, Hejaz, Yemen and other parts of North Africa.

Under Saladin's personal leadership, the Ayyubid army defeated the Crusaders at the decisive Battle of Hattin in 1187, leading the way to the Muslims' re-capture of Palestine from the Crusaders who had conquered it 88 years earlier. Though the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem would continue to exist for an extended period, its defeat at Hattin marked a turning point in its conflict with the Muslim powers of the region.

On 29 September 1182, Saladin crossed the Jordan River to attack Beisan, which was found to be empty. The next day his forces sacked and burned the town and moved westwards. They intercepted Crusader reinforcements from Karak and Shaubak along the Nablus road and took a number of prisoners. Meanwhile, the main Crusader force under Guy of Lusignan moved from Sepphoris to al-Fula. Saladin sent out 500 skirmishers to harass their forces, and he himself marched to Ain Jalut. When the Crusader force—reckoned to be the largest the kingdom ever produced from its own resources, but still outmatched by the Muslims—advanced, the Ayyubids unexpectedly moved down the stream of Ain Jalut.

Crusader attacks provoked further responses by Saladin. Raynald of Châtillon, in particular, harassed Muslim trading and pilgrimage routes with a fleet on the Red Sea, a water route that Saladin needed to keep open. In response, Saladin built a fleet of 30 galleys to attack Beirut in 1182. Raynald threatened to attack the holy cities of Mecca and Medina. In retaliation, Saladin twice besieged Kerak, Raynald's fortress in Oultrejordain, in 1183 and 1184. Raynald responded by looting a caravan of pilgrims on the Hajj in 1185.

In July 1187 Saladin captured most of the Kingdom of Jerusalem. On July 4, 1187, at the Battle of Hattin, he faced the combined forces of Guy of Lusignan, King Consort of Jerusalem, and Raymond III of Tripoli. In this battle alone the Crusader force was largely annihilated by Saladin's determined army. It was a major disaster for the Crusaders and a turning point in the history of the Crusades. Saladin captured Raynald and was personally responsible for his execution in retaliation for his attacks against Muslim caravans. The members of these caravans had, in vain, besought his mercy by reciting the truce between the Muslims and the Crusaders, but Raynald ignored this and insulted the Islamic prophet, Muhammad, before murdering and torturing a number of them. Upon hearing this, Saladin swore an oath to personally execute Raynald. Guy of Lusignan was also captured. Seeing the execution of Raynald, he feared he would be next. However, his life was spared by Saladin, who said of Raynald, "It is not the wont of kings, to kill kings; but that man had transgressed all bounds, and therefore did I treat him thus."

Saladin had captured almost every Crusader city. Saladin preferred to take Jerusalem without bloodshed and offered generous terms, but those inside refused to leave their holy city, vowing to destroy it in a fight to the death rather than see it handed over peacefully. Jerusalem capitulated to his forces on Friday, 2 October 1187, after a siege.

Balian of Ibelin threatened to kill every Muslim hostage, estimated at 5,000, and to destroy Islam's holy shrines of the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa Mosque if such quarter were not provided. Saladin consulted his council and the terms were accepted. The agreement was read out through the streets of Jerusalem so that everyone might within forty days, provide for himself and pay to Saladin the agreed tribute for his freedom. An unusually low ransom for the times (around $50 today) was to be paid for each Frank in the city, whether man, woman, or child, but Saladin, against the wishes of his treasurers, allowed many families who could not afford the ransom to leave.

Most of the foot soldiers were sold into slavery. Upon the capture of Jerusalem, Saladin summoned the Jews and permitted them to resettle in the city. In particular, the residents of Ashkelon, a large Jewish settlement, responded to his request.

Tyre, on the coast of modern-day Lebanon, was the last major Crusader city that was not captured by Muslim forces.
Strategically, it would have made more sense for Saladin to capture Tyre before Jerusalem; Saladin, however, chose to pursue Jerusalem first because of the importance of the city to Islam.

In 1188, at Tortosa, Saladin released Guy of Lusignan and returned him to his wife, Queen Sibylla of Jerusalem. They went first to Tripoli, then to Antioch. In 1189, they sought to reclaim Tyre for their kingdom but were refused admission by Conrad, who did not recognize Guy as king. Guy then set about besieging Acre.

Saladin was on friendly terms with Queen Tamar of Georgia. Saladin's biographer Baha' ad-Din ibn Šaddad reports that, after Saladin's conquest of Jerusalem, the Georgian Queen sent envoys to the sultan to request the return of confiscated possessions of the Georgian monasteries in Jerusalem. Saladin's response is not recorded, but the queen's efforts seem to have been successful as Jacques de Vitry, the Bishop of Acre, reports the Georgians were, in contrast to the other Christian pilgrims, allowed a free passage into the city with their banners unfurled.

“The Woman Simply Said No!”
By
Gregory V. Boulware

Never Before Released To The Social Media Public Forum!
The Controversial,
Hot, s*xy, and Sizzling!
‘Un-Publisized, Un-Promoted, and Censored By Several Social Media Sites!’
‘Demon’s Throat!’

Newly Released From The Book – “HALLOW!” (11.17.11, Published 12.21.11)
http://www.amazon.com/Gregory-V.-Boul...

Could it be that the Radicalism in her jumped and stood up to the implied power over her? Was it the Militant spirit that has been aroused?

In light of current stresses of relationships in the world, married or otherwise, would this tale address your particular situation?
Would this ‘Strong and Powerful, yet Powerless Woman’ not reflect the kindred spirit in You?

There are many blessings to be counted for and/or in light of "True Love, Commitment, and Companionship!"
“How Black Women SHOULD Treat Black Men”
http://blackinamerica.com/content/290...

The barmaid found, upon her morning start; wash-up and a regimen of hygienic rituals, a growth on her body. She felt something that wasn’t there before. She felt her breasts. She felt her nipples and began to massage them, gently, oh so gently. They were tender…tender indeed.
The barmaid’s breasts were sore. They were sore from intense s*xual usage…she remembered the most pleasurable encounter. She remembered the signing of a pact. She remembered the signing of her name in blood upon the skin-like parchment, the red firestorm and the feeling of ******l penetrations – she found it extremely pleasurable.
“My God…the pleasure of it all,” said the barmaid to others at “the Black Mass.” She shouted aloud. “Oh my Lord…I wish this pleasure of waves and contentment continue forever more…ohm, ash!” The climaxes…the s*xual satisfaction of orgasm, over, and over, again. She also felt growth. The night of the Sabbat seemed to linger on and on. The night seemed to never end…but it was way too short. It ended too soon.
Wynetta experienced the same thing.

Walter was no angel…not by a long shot. Albeit, he beat his wife. He was not always a monster – at least before age seventeen. He always did like the ladies. He was not a particularly good looking chap, but he had a way…a way the ladies liked. His bedroom prowess was better than average and the word got around. The weekend house parties that marked the norm for his neck of the woods, while growing into manhood had a hand in it too. All the females wanted to slow-dance with Walter. He did pretty good with fast and loose dances too. Many of the fellas were a bit pissed with him for stealing their dates. They couldn’t figure out his technique. When he was out hanging with the boys, he would just laugh and tease them.
“It’s all in the hips boys…all in the hips and lips.” He never said whose hips and lips.

After Walter and Wynetta married, the fun for them had ebbed. He lost his happy go lucky spirit. The thrill of the married life went out the window…especially after their first two babies were born. He didn’t have the time to party and hang-out with the boys anymore… He missed the thrill of bedding any woman he wanted…he wanted and wished for that life again. He wanted it badly.
The Fates were upon him. Mammon called to him. Bilial beckoned him to join the group in the back room for a bit of craps or a hand of poker. Leviathon was in the back room with Balberith, Verrine, Gressil, Asmodeus, Sonneillon, Pytho, Carreu, Carnivean, Oeillet, Rosier, Verrier, and Lucifer. Beelzebub sat down next to Walter at the bar.

With witches, the devil sealed the contract of soul for service by giving the barmaid the mark of identification – just like a rancher branding his cattle – a note or token of his power and prerogative over her.
~ ‘Demon’s Throat’ ~
Walter took steps to make himself happy, satisfied. He made a deal to rectify it all… Little did he know, his wife also made a deal. She simply said NO!

“No he will not have his way! Not again, not this time!”

'Black In America' (BIA) - ACK:
“Brother Doctor Gregory V Boulware, I got this copy of your collective thoughts this morning and I will be reviewing these words of yours and I am impressively honored that you thought of me for this esteemed task.”
Deacon Ron Gray

Deacon Ron Gray wrote (Fri Apr 29th, 2016 at 11:27AM on BIA-Mail):
“Brother Doctor Gregory V. Boulware, you did it, yes it was you who did it! I have not read a non-fiction novel; this is something I have not done in maybe 30 or 35 years! You did it, now I could not put this narrative down until I finished reading the first short story ‘The Rails, Some Hemp, and A Hanging,’ I got this feeling that Hallow II is going to be a good read!”

“Once I found out who’s eye’s I was seeing the world through, time and place in which this scenario took place, these images formed in my mind’s eye of a poor immigrant who came to this country (America) and became a wealthy man in the south by profiting from slavery. During the last days of slavery, this man is seeing no fighting to maintain his status during the civil war by trying to stop the blue coats and now he was paying the price of his actions with his life as he finally realizes, realism!”

“You did this Brother Doctor Gregory V. Boulware, and now I find myself at the key board telling you, what I discovered as you so skillfully painted these images as an artist uses his tools in my mind's eye with words.”

“Keep up the good work. I got some more to read.”

...Many, Many Thanks Brother Deacon! I'm so very happy that you've enjoyed the first story! It pleases me greatly! Now, I can't wait until you read 'The Catharsis Table!'

Peace and Love Good Brother!

~ “BLOODLUST” ~
Before William Penn and the Mayflower, the Native Americans lived on the land now known as the United States of America. Here in the northwest, the Philadelphia-Germantown area is where the Quakers settled to farm and establish businesses. They were mostly of German descent, hence the name Germantown.

This area was also a haven for runaway slaves. “The Underground Railroad” ran through this region of the country as well. There existed a number of “Safe-Houses” for escaped African-American Slaves (not known then as African Americans) such as, The Mennonite Meeting House and the Johnson House. The route to freedom for Black people often led to Canada, although a number of African descendants decided to settle in Germantown where they felt safe from persecution.

~ 'The Brotherhood' ~
We expected to be awakened by the charms of harmonious chatter and laughter. We looked forward to the sensual arousal of breakfast aromas dazzling our every sense to complement the happiness of the nostrils. It did not occur.
We were abruptly awakened by two burly New York City Cops. They were not smiling while we twitched and pitched about; tossing and turning in our beds.

The blood printed sign was directed to the murder investigations by Scotland Yard personnel. The inspector dreaded answering the call. He sure as hell did not intend to go back through the ‘Gates of Hell.’ He fought against evil and won – even though it wasn’t sanctioned by the brotherhood or the royal house or his immediate supervisors.

~ “Howl Of An angel” ~
The castle, converted to a religious sanctuary or ‘Keep,’ if you will, sat ominously upon the spookiest hill in the area. It sat there looking at us, daring us to leave the sanctuary of the rattling, creaking, and cantankerous old bus. It beckoned as much as it warned to stay away from here. My curiosity would not leave me be. It kicked me, pulled at me, and slapped me. The site of this keep will never let me rest; it will never let me go. I needed to see inside. I needed to speak with its occupants.

The writing project, for an upcoming book, chronicles the adventures, trials, and tribulations of Shakespeare’s Black Conquering Usurper residing in the land of the whites. My journey brought me from the colleges and universities of the Philadelphia area of America to the wondrous and mystical land of Morocco and European Civilization. We, my beautiful assistant, ‘Isabelle’ and I; where swept away on a bus tour. The moors and hillsides of Ireland were beautifully green, brilliant, and vast. For this plot of earth called an island by men, would leave me to believe otherwise. We simply fell in love with this place. The rickety double-decker bus, upon which the tour proceeded, traveled over hill and dale to mystical ruins and places of dreamlike genres and imagination. Tales of the Arabian Knights, King Arturius/Arthur, and the likes of Lord William Wallace vividly came to mind. Visitors couldn’t help revisiting the old books of fame and childhood bedtime stories.

Brother 'Samuel F. Yette'
Journalist, photographer

In the summer of 1956 ‘Samuel F. Yette’ teamed with photographer and author ‘Gordon Parks’ to create a four-part series on racial segregation for Life magazine. As a reporter for the Washington and Baltimore Afro-American, Yette covered the major events of the civil rights movement, including the Montgomery bus boycott, the organizational meetings of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), and the 1957 march on Washington. He was fired as Newsweek magazine's Washington correspondent after the publication of his 1971 book, The Choice, in which he claimed that there were "genocidal schemes" high up in the U.S. government to commit "guerilla warfare" against black Americans. As a freelance journalist and columnist Yette continued to spark dialogue and incite controversy with his outspoken and sometimes radical analyses.

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There’s a rare, furry visitor in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park.

Stephen McKenzie ‎@SteveMcKCBS3
Black Bear got away, still on the loose in Fairmount Park now on the Valley Green rd side of the creek @CBSPhilly
2:02 PM - 13 May 2016 · Philadelphia, PA, United States
http://www.boulwareenterprises.com/FA...

At 12:02 P.M., Friday, May 13th, a Black Bear has been sighted in or around 'Valley-Green Road' near the 'Valley-Green Inn in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park. A fisherman down stream from Valley Green Inn was shocked to see a black bear lumbering through the woods.

Maura McCarthy, Executive Director of Friends of the Wissahicon says it’s not an everyday site and this is a good size animal.
“Bigger than a person is what the fisherman told me, so it looks like it’s either fully mature or almost mature, we’re not sure of the sex whether it’s male or female, we know that it’s probably pursuing food pretty far outside of its food range, but beyond that we don’t know where it’s from.”

She says bears can be found in this part of the commonwealth, but adds it’s highly unusual for one to be found wandering within city limits.

The Forrest Ranger walked over to the Police Captain and stood right in front of him and quietly requested his attention. The two men walked to another side of the search area for the private conversation. Gerald Glenn has been a Forrest Ranger for more than twenty years. Four of those years, his assignment had been the Northeastern Pennsylvania Region. Ranger Glenn knows everything about everything in the wild, from its greenery to the smallest of animals. Ranger Glenn pointed to something on the ground next to one of the Cherry Blossom trees, a print of something large was present. A few feet away in a southwesterly direction, off the roadway of Strawberry Mansion Drive, another large print was found.

Captain Willice Samuel, of Philadelphia's Finest, stood looking over the edge of the cliff, peering down onto the East river Drive. The screaming sirens of emergency vehicles filled the normally quiet environment of park life. Speeding past the stopped traffic below, the EMR vehicles made their way up the hill to the spot were the kids were playing. The Strawberry Mansion Bridge was at a standstill as was the East River Drive traffic. Nothing and no one was being allowed to move through the area.

Traffic backed up all over. Ridge Avenue was being over-crowed with the over flow of rush hour traffic. Both river drives, East and West, were backed up into the East Falls area of Midvale Avenue into Henry Avenue. The downtown out bound traffic was a mess. The local news on automobile radios reported the traffic mess as an accident in the park. They were not aware of the trouble that was amiss. Emergency vehicles were parked at the spot were the body of Lindsey Irvin lay at bottom of the twelve hundred ft drop from the cliff of the Strawberry Mansion roadway. The first EMR personnel on the scene could not believe their eyes.

>

Part 1:
'Strawberry Mansion'

The Fairmount Park Rapist became second fiddle to this latest horror in our city’s parkland…where no one is safe! No one in able to control, contain, or prevent the attacks of this killer that stalks the area…save one man who knows the inner workings of the mind of this murderer!

A thunderous roar erupted just as Lindsey placed his hand on the last rock in the cliff, pulling himself up onto the plateau. Dirt and shrubbery flew all around as if a strong wind-gust blasted through signaling a squall in a rainstorm or twister. The boy could not believe his eyes. He nearly fell backward off the ledge of the cliff. But he knew subconsciously, that he had to hang on. It’s about a twelve hundred foot drop to the bottom.

Painful fear gripped his heart as he watched the massive tree-trunk sized object strike his cousin and lift him from the ground. Malcolm’s eyes were fixed on Jason and then on his cousin. His eyes screamed at them as if he were saying, “why don’t you guys reach out and grab me?” “Something hit me!” “It hurts!” “I’m falling!” Jason and Lindsey could do nothing as they watched in terror. The flying, broken, and bloodied body of their friend and cousin twisted and turned in the air while falling away from the cliff’s surface and down towards the bottom of the hillside. The angry and piercing eyes of the thing were now upon them.
https://gvb1210mine.wordpress.com/201......

Part 2:
“Smith Playground In North Philly”

The angry piercing eyes of the thing were now upon them…Malcolm screamed. He was dreaming. His sleep was continually interrupted with nightmares. His parents considered psychiatric consultation. The constant nightmares caused great concern to Benjamin and Geraldine Xavier. “Will this terrible event never end,” asked Benjamin?
Gerald Glenn, Genailia Francis, and Willice Samuel walked through the patch of rhododendron and azalea bushes to examine the grassy spot near the Strawberry Mansion Bridge.

Ranger Glenn removed the sample of plant leaf and soil from a plastic bag while pointing to the spot he had examined during the initial search around the cherry blossom tree. The paw-print, nearly gone after being exposed for more than ten days, gave Francis and Samuel a fright. Now the captain knew why the ranger had that strange look on his face the day the boys were attacked. “Damn, do they actually grow to be that big”, exclaimed Samuel? Glenn answered, “No”. He also added, “I’ve seen them big…but not this damn big!”
“This one is huge…gigantic…a monster!” “From the size and length of the print, it’s got to be at least 9 to 10 foot in height and weighing more than 5,000 lbs.
https://gvb1210mine.wordpress.com/201......

Part 3:
A Sweet Briar License’

The news media took the ball and ran with it. The headlines blasted the story of the attack of Czepaky and her children on the front pages of their respective papers.

Television news programs portrayed the mother and her children as their leading news story. Radio news did likewise. And still they did not mention Lindsey Irvin.
A heavy police presence saturated both sides of the Schuylkill River, from the East Falls Bridge to the Art Museum and Eakins Oval. The Marine Unit of The Philadelphia Police Department could not find anything that would indicate the whereabouts of the bear or the body of he suspected dead teenager. The order was given to start a diving search and rescue effect. “We don’t expect to find the boy alive, “ said one team commander to another diving squad commander. “But we do expect to find his body."

Two divers were set to go into the water. Assistant team members double-checked their gear. They made sure that the underwater radios and flashlights were operating correctly. The divers entered the water under the Girard Avenue Bridge, just down river from the viewing stand and Goose Island, which sat smack in the middle of the river directly across from the viewing stand automobile parking lot.
https://gvb1210mine.wordpress.com/201......

Part 4:
"A Pillar of Salt"

Sirens screamed…seemingly from everywhere. The eeriness of the moonlit night chilled the souls of all witnessing the frightening and tragic event. The female driver who was involved in the fender-bender, stood still. When she reached her car, a 2006 Mercedes XE – she stood…shivering. The woman stared with the eyes of a statue, a pillar of salt. Her face stone cold and pale chalky white…just screamed. She wasn’t aware of her scream.

The coroner was already loading the lower half of the dead cop’s body into the van as the two captains arrived on scene. “Damn”, exclaimed Captain Noodles while viewing the bloody scene and what was left of the cop. “One of the witnesses is already at the hospital,” stated a 14th District Sergeant. Captain Samuel asked, “What in the hell kind of animal are we dealing with?” The swat team commander reported to commissioner Talis. “We’ve found a blood trail leading back from the roadway down to the river’s edge. All that we found was a couple of fingers, a pool of blood, very large animal paw-prints, and crushed shrubbery… Nothing else…whatever it was, it’s gone!”

"It’s a bear…a rather larger than life monster Kodiak bear." The voice of dread was that of the newly appointed Environmental Protection Agency agent and Governmental National Parks and Wildlife Ranger Gerald Glenn.

It took the mayor all of fifteen minutes to reach the horrific and catastrophic scene. The newspaper, TV, radio, and network news media were already encamped at the site. The mayors’ personal police escort carved a direct access route through the barricades and intrepid news-hawks. She stepped out of the car, surrounded by bodyguards and her immediate staff. Microphones and cameras made an attempt to smother her. She waved her left hand and with a sternful glance…indicating no interviews or statements.
https://gvb1210mine.wordpress.com/201...-...

Part 5:
‘The Myrtlewood Street Funeral’

The news media swarmed the event. They surrounded Officer Leonard Kirkpatrick, his wife Evelyn, and his doctor – asking all kinds of questions while shoving microphones recorders and cameras in their faces.
“What was it like to see your partner bitten in half by the beast?” “Why didn’t you shoot the monster when he attacked?” “What did the thing look like, officer?” “Why didn’t the thing eat the other half?” “How come you didn’t get eaten by the beast?”

The group of Black men crossed the street to where the reporters were congregating. Ramses grabbed one of the reporters, who happened to be a white female. The group of cops stopped their conversation to watch the confrontation. The embittered father demanded a verbal response from the journalist. “WHY WEREN’T YOU PEOPLE ASKING QUESTIONS WHEN MY BOY WAS KILLED?” “WHY IS IT THESE QUESTIONS ARE ADDRESSED AFTER MY SON WAS KILLED BY THIS THING?” “WHY WEREN’T YOU ALL FALLING ALL OVER YOURSELVES WHILE INVESTIGATING MY BOYS KILLING?” Ramses got the attention of all the reporters present. “WAS IT BECAUSE THIS IS THE FUNERAL OF A WHITE NORTHEAST COP AS OPPOSED TO A LITTLE BLACK BOY FROM NORTH PHILLY?” Screamed the distraught teary-eyed father. “I WILL ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS…LINDSEY WAS A HUMAN BEING TOO!” Said Ramses.

“The distinction between brown and grizzly bears is geographical. Brown bears that live close to the coast are called brown bears. Browns living inland and in northern lands, such as Denali, are called grizzlies,” Glenn said. “They share the scientific name Ursus arctos.”

Professor Genailia Francis added, “Black bears are smaller than browns and also cover a great deal of the state. Their fur color isn’t always black; it may even appear brown, cinnamon or (rarely) blue.”

“Black bears may be seen feeding on salmon at Anan Creek, but they’re common enough in Juneau, Seward and parts of Anchorage to be considered pests. A male bear that’s ready for hibernation may weigh 240 pounds. The scientific name is Ursus americanus,” she said.

“Think about it. This thing on its hind legs could walk up to the average single-story house and could look on the roof at eye level.” There was never a question that the brown bear that a 22-year-old hunter shot to death in October 2001 on Hinchinbrook Island was huge. The grizzly measured 10 feet, 6 inches from nose to tail. Its front claws were 3 to 4 inches long. An Alaska master guide estimated the bear’s weight at up to 1,200 pounds. (The average brown bear weight for Hinchinbrook is less than half that.) One photo shows the hunter holding the bear’s paw as it obscures almost his entire chest. A second photo shows him crouching like a child behind the bear’s massive, bloody head. "It’s over one thousand six hundred pounds . . . 12’6” high at the shoulder,” stated the reporter.

Most of the time, black bears are reluctant to meet people and can be shooed away. Juneau has particular problems with its numerous black bears, however. The city even created a committee to deal with the bears. Hikers in Chugach State Park, Chugach National Forest and Kenai National Wildlife Refuge need to be aware of bear habits and habitat. Bears show up during the salmon runs, usually mixing peacefully with anglers. Look for bear warning signs along the Kenai, Russian and Little Susitna rivers and along many creeks and trails with road access.

The mayor, appearing perplexed, paradoxed, disconcerted, and unsatisfied wanted to also know how this beast was to be dealt with. She looked directly a Glenn…and then at Talis. Her denoted glare returned to Glenn. “What would you suggest we do about this animal – sir?” Talis moved to respond. Finkles threw up a hand with all five digits to signal a halt to the interruption. “I can stalk and trap this creature with a certain level of assistance,"’ replied the ranger. Without looking for confirmation from the commissioner, Captain Samuel assured the ranger of his support. Captain Noodles barked, “You have no authority to offer anything to this man!” The two captains glared at one another, one was filled with hatred and bitterness toward the other. Captain Samuel looked to his commissioner for support. The commissioner, in his usual divergence and belied acquiescence, gazed vicariously elsewhere. Mayor Finkles deftly replied, “Yeah, but I do!” The mayor beamed a sardonic, dour, and non-faggoted glare at the commissioner and offending captain, well aware of their canted behavior and practices.

“We need to deploy all resources in the capture and removal of this animal…at all cost.” She fiercely replied to the oppositional attitude of Noodles’ baneful disposition.

The cop sneered and steered his gaze towards the commissioner. Talis just stood there. He appeared to be a military type style of attention. The mayor had complete control over the situation. “Let’s hear it, Ranger!” The mayor sat down amongst the commissioners and zookeepers.

"The bear in the park is a monster. I suspect that it is also a product of the surreptitious people within that encampment,” exclaimed the ranger. The ranger vehemently expressed his belief. “I believe that this bear is an experiment that has gone wrong…because it has escaped and is now here with us – eating, living, and hunting.”

“The Horror of It All…!”

The race against time begins in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park. Dead bodies were compounded from one side of the river to the other. From Alaska and down through Canada the dealers of death are pursued in the hope of bringing the killing to an end. The city’s officials are at odds with one another. The populace is on edge and demanding closure…an end to the terror that has the city in a grip of fear, turmoil, and a cold sweat of terror.

Have You Written A Book? ...Are Writing A Book? Do you have a publisher? What about an agent or promotion representative?

Then you should know what it takes to get published and to realize the hypocrisies associated within the industry of Publication and Recognition!

"I The Publisher ('Truegaluonce') once served simultaneously as an advance reader for both The Book of the Month Club and for a prominent African American literary agent in New York City. For those unaware, the Book of the Month Club was and is a subscription service which selects books to present to its members. An advance reader is a person who screens a book prior either to publication--in the case of the literary agent--or prior to being picked up by The Book of the Month Club for presentation to its members.

In both cases, I’ve screened books by American writers of African Descent. My job was to provide a review of the book which would be compared to the assessment of other readers to help determine the suitability of the book for publication or for inclusion. I learned from this experience that the very best novels the literary agent presented to me were rarely or never published, while what I considered sub-par novels were usually the ones published. In the same vein, what I read from The Book of the Month Club was always what I considered average-to-low in quality. It became clear that American publishers routinely pander to the "lowest common denominator" when it comes to work by people of African Descent. The very best material rarely sees the light of day.

Now, since I was never privy to the decision makers, I can neither confirm nor deny that this is done intentionally (although I suspect this is the case). Nor can I state with any certainty whether decisions to foster the lower quality of novel by people of African Descent is something relegated to our writing or if this prevails across all ethnicities/ideologies. What I can attest to is that this seems to be a fact. I read many truly exquisitely written novels that never went any further, despite my earnest recommendations. This seemed particularly true for the literary agent, although I believe the agent was only accommodating the prevailing trend rather than actively participating in setting it. It should be noted that, by the time books made it to The Book of the Month Club for consideration, presumably what I would have considered the best had already been weeded out.

It has since become clear to me that there is a wealth of truly remarkable writings by People of African Descent out there which should be made available to the public. Truegalu is our attempt to achieve this goal. It takes Truagalu--true gall*--to buck the establishment.”

Let us know how we're doing!
