Jennifer Hudson and her mom, Darnell Donerson who was killed, as well as her brother, Jason. the body of her 7-year-old nephew Monday, just hours after his body was found in a

plate X584859 was found on Chicago’s West Side after police received a 7 a.m. call

from a neighbor about a suspicious vehicle. The man noticed the vehicle while walking his dog. According to the Chicago Tribune, the boy had been shot multiple times in the back seat of the vehicle. The SUV, registered to Hudson’s murdered brother, was towed with the boy’s body inside and is being processed by evidence technicians and workers. The body was later removed and taken to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. Hudson and other family members arrived at the Medical Examiner’s office mid-afternoon to identify the body. Given the choice between looking directly at the body or viewing it on a wall-mounted

video screen, the family chose the latter. According to the Tribune, Hudson said, “Yes, that’s him.”

Leader Calls Voter Registration Fraud Charges ‘Bogus’ Presidential candidate John McCain’s attack on ACORN – Associated Community Organization for Reform Now – confirms the success of the organization, the head of the group says. “This is testimony to the work we’ve done and success we’ve had,” Maude Hurd, president of ACORN, said in an interview with the AFRO. “When this attack started, we had just announced that we had registered 1.3 million new voters,” she said. “That’s just to say that someone’s running scared because of ACORN’s success.” McCain, who is running for president on the Republican ticket, lashed out at ACORN in the final debate against Barack Obama, contending the group “is on the verge of maybe perpetrating one of the greatest frauds in voter history in this country, maybe destroying the fabric of democracy.” Factcheck.org, a non-partisan Web site, found those claims to be “exaggerated,” with “no evidence of any such democracydestroying fraud.” Hurd believes the McCain charges were politically motivated. She said, “Because it’s lowand moderate-income people, and people of color, I believe the McCain campaign thinks those voters are going to vote Democratic, which is not necessarily true.” ACORN is no stranger to controversy. For 38 years, the non-partisan organization has fought for social and economic justice for lowand moderate-income Americans. With 400,000 member families organized into more than 1,200 neighborhood chapters in 110 cities nationwide, ACORN has over the years seen its share of criticism while advocating for affordable housing, living wages, healthcare for the underserved— and while organizing voter registration drives. But none has been as withering and baseless as this one. With the presidential election less than two weeks away, ACORN’s detractors allege the organization has engaged in massive voter registration fraud after the reported discovery of bogus names, such as Mickey Mouse

and Dallas Cowboys players Tony Romo and Terrell Owens, among the names submitted to election officials. Hurd said those workers, who were doing those things without ACORN’s knowledge or permission, were fired. “The evidence that has surfaced so far shows they faked forms to get paid for work they didn’t do, not to stuff ballot boxes.” ACORN, she said, is the victim of fraud, not the perpetra– Joyce Rivera tor of it. Hurd said the only things bogus are the charges themselves. And factcheck. org agrees. It concluded, “Neither ACORN nor its employees have been found guilty of, or even charged with, casting fraudulent votes.” The problem came about primarily because of the way ACORN operates. Rather than rely on volunteers, it pays people, many of them poor or unemployed, to sign up new voters. The idea was to help both those being registered and those doing the registration. Maud explained, “We have a zero tolerance policy for deliberate falsification of registration.” Most news account neglect to point out that ACORN is required by law to turn in all registration forms. And they also fail to note that it was the organization, in many instances, that first brought the phony registrations to the attention of authorities. The McCain camp apparently isn’t interested in those fine points, preferring to air misleading ads that seek to link Obama to ACORN, thereby undercutting his political support. McCain: I’m John McCain and I approve this message. Announcer: Who is Barack Obama? A man with “a political baptism performed at warp speed.” Vast ambition. After college, he moved to Chicago. Became a community organizer. There, Obama met Madeleine Talbot, part of the Chicago branch of ACORN. He was so impressive that he was asked to train the ACORN staff. What did ACORN in Chicago engage in? Bullying banks. Intimidation tactics. Disruption of business. ACORN forced banks to issue risky home loans. The same types of loans that caused the financial crisis we’re in today.

No wonder Obama’s campaign is trying to distance him from the group, saying, “Barack Obama Never Organized with ACORN.” But Obama’s ties to ACORN run long and deep. He taught classes for ACORN. They even endorsed him for President. But now ACORN is in trouble. Reporter: There are at least 11 investigations across the country involving thousands of potentially fraudulent ACORN forms. Announcer: Massive voter fraud. And the Obama campaign paid more than $800,000 to an ACORN front for get out the vote efforts. Pressuring banks to issue risky loans. Nationwide voter fraud. Barack Obama. Bad judgment. Blind ambition. Too risky for America. Since McCain’s comments, ACORN’s 87 offices have been bombarded with threats and racist mail. The day after the presidential debate, vandals broke into the organization’s Boston and Seattle offices and stole computers. After a Cleveland representative appeared on TV, an e-mail was sent to the local office saying she “is going to have her life ended.” A worker in Providence, R.I., received a threatening call saying, “We know you get off work at 9” and uttered racial epithets. A caller to one office left a message on the answering machine, saying: “Hi, I was just calling to let you know that Barack Obama needs to get hung. He’s a (expletive deleted) nigger, and he’s a piece of (expletive deleted). You guys are fraudulent, and you need to go to hell. All the niggers on oak trees. They’re gonna get all hung honeys, they’re going to get assassinated, they’re gonna get killed.” Another message said, “You liberal idiots. Dumb (expletive deleted). Welfare bums. You guys just (expletive deleted) come to our country, consume every natural resource there is, and make a lot of babies. That’s all you guys do. And then suck up the welfare and expect everyone else to pay for your hospital bills for your kids. I jus’ say let your kids die. That’s the best move. Just let your children die. Forget about paying for hospital bills for them. I’m not gonna do it. You guys are lowlifes. And I hope you all die.” Hurd thinks the hate calls will cease soon. “In two weeks, I think these attacks will be over. But I think it will be harder for us to get our name back on good graces because they really trashed us in the last few weeks.” But ACORN will not be deterred. “We’ve been fighting for a long time, for over 30 years, for the rights of low- and moderateincome people all across the country,” Hurd said. “We’re going to continue to fight for economic justice in our communities.”

“remained strong for her family” and was clearly its leader. “She held hands with her family,” the spokesman said. “It was obviously a very emotional moment.” The boy – the son of Julia Hudson, Jennifer’s sister – had been missing since Friday, when a relative found Julian’s grandmother, Darnell Donerson, 57, and his uncle, Jason Hudson, 29, shot to death in his grandmother’s home in the 7000 block of South Yale Avenue. An Amber Alert – a designation for high-risk missing children – was issued Friday after Julian was discovered missing after the murders. Police arrested William Balfour, the missing boy’s stepfather and estranged husband of Julia, at his girlfriend’s Southside apartment several hours after the murders. Balfour’s mother, Michele, has told reporters that her son had nothing to do with the slayings. Balfour remains a suspect in

being convicted of attempted murder and vehicular hijacking. Cook County records show that he pleaded guilty to both charges in 1999. He was also convicted in 1998 for possession of a stolen motor vehicle. He was released from prison in 2006 after serving seven years for the attempted murder and car hijacking charges. The boy remained missing through a long weekend in which police and volunteers

Opinion America at a Crossroads

Elijah Cummings

Earlier this month, action by the U.S. House of Representatives illustrated the importance of our vote this coming November. Four years after we elected Barack Obama President of the United States, our nation is at a historic juncture. “We the People” will decide which direction we will travel during the decades to come. On May 10, following the directives of House Republican leaders, the House voted to cut $310 billion

proposal, H.R. 5652, were to become law, the result would mean the elimination of the Social Services Block Grants to the states and cities, decimating programs that now assist 23 million low-income children, seniors and disabled Americans. Especially hard-hit would be Meals on Wheels, child abuse prevention programs, child care centers and job training programs. The Republican party-line measure would also cut $36 billion from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as “food stamps,” that provides aid to lowincome Americans. As a result, nearly 1.8 million Americans would lose their eligibility. An estimated 300,000 low-income students would lose free-school meals. Notwithstanding a public health system that needs and deserves expanded funding, the Republicans’ May 10 measure also would cut $11.9 billion and eliminate the Prevention and Public Health Fund that is targeted at cancer prevention and other essential public-health programs. It would cut $5.4 billion, thereby eliminating direct spending for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that we created to regulate the credit card companies and other money lenders. Federal and postal employees, already burdened with $60

billion in lost wages during the last two years’ pay freeze, would be forced to pay an additional $83 billion toward their retirement plans. It is critical that all Americans fully understand what this House Republican action portends. The Republican measure is the GOP’s response to the mandated, automatic and across-the-board reductions they previously demanded in the Budget Control Act as the price of avoiding a default on federal obligations. In exchange for permitting an increase in the federal debt ceiling required to sustain the full faith and credit of U.S. government obligations, the Budget Control Act requires a $1 trillion reduction in federal spending and authorizes another $1.2 trillion in cuts over the next decade. One half of these cuts would come from defense spending. Now, the Republicans want to extract from our most vulnerable citizens the cost of avoiding these Pentagon cuts next year. It is worth noting than neither I nor any of my Democratic colleagues in the House supported the House Republicans’ plan. In fact, 16 Republicans joined us in opposing it, as do President Obama and Senate Democrats. For these reasons, H.R. 5652 is unlikely to become law. However, the Republican party-line vote is yet another indication of the extreme, reactionary direction upon which they would take our national government if they were to win control of both the Presidency and the Congress this fall. The Democratic vision is for a 21st Century America that expands and strengthens our middle class through education and innovation, union organization and expanded voter vision of the modern, integrated “opportunity” society” in which everyone can learn, grow, participate and be rewarded in meaningful ways. In contrast, the Republican vision, under close examination, would almost necessarily continue the trend of recent years toward growing disparities in income, wealth and power. Left unchecked by our civic participation on Election Day, it would destroy the ability of working families to organize, limit voter participation, and continue to ship job opportunities overseas.

In the name of an unregulated “free enterprise,” most Americans would be harmed by such a Republican future, Americans of color most of all. We would become the kind of “unevenly developed society” that, for generations, has bedeviled human aspirations throughout much of the world. Americans should never forget that we are in a major struggle – one that voters will decide next November. This is why the vote on H.R. 5652 should be a wake-up call for us all. As Maryland Congressman Chris Van Hollen, Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, accurately observed, the Republican plan “protects tax breaks for millionaires and corporations, while putting children and struggling families on the chopping block.” The better way – the more American way – to address our federal budgetary constraints would be a cuts to the tax breaks and subsidies currently enjoyed by the wealthy and powerful special interests. America is at a historic crossroads, and the major political parties are deadlocked. Between now and next November, the American people must decide. Congressman Elijah Cummings represents Maryland’s 7th Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives.

Naysaying “Miss Black France” Beauty Pageant As reported in the AfroAmerican Newspaper’s story entitled “Crowning of First Miss Black France Ignites Controversy”, May 12-18, 2012

complex in their opposition to the “Miss Black France” beauty pageant. The white French reaction (and I bet a penny some black French reaction) illuminates white superiority complex in action. Our world needs more light. French opposition to a “Miss Black France” pageant helps people understand the absurdity of white superiority complex. The absurdity of the absurdity, a double-absurdity to boot, is that the white French can not see the absurdity of telling folk not to celebrate themselves, which is totally absurd in the 21st

century. Perhaps worldwide, all people should fully embrace intelligence, grace, curves and beauty of Black Women, or extraction and colonialism. Let’s not forget perpetual war and barbarian conquest. Surely, humans then would be more respectful of fellow humans. Then, all of France would be happy. It gets weirder. In white superiority complex, race can not matter. To acknowledge race is to acknowledge the structural economic slavery, colonial exploitation and resource extraction. Let’s all determination and cultural integrity, and live the rest of the 21st century befuddled about who we are. If black French folk bow to the absurd pressure, then mark

positivity in a world based on (oops!) lighter skin pigmentation privilege. Just be French white. To satisfy those who say “No” to a “Miss Black France” beauty pageant, this is what we need. We need more self-alienation and befuddlement among Black peoples at home and abroad. Yep! Let’s shine a light on that and eliminate the power of Black historical memory.

Marriage is a Civil Rights Issue There has been much teeth-gnashing by political pundits over whether President Obama’s announcement that he believes same-sex couples should be allowed to marry will hurt him among black and Latino voters. It won’t, and it shouldn’t. Rev. Al Sharpton said it clearly: “This is not about mine or anyone’s personal or religious views. It is about equal rights for all. We cannot be selective with civil rights. We must support civil rights for everybody or we don’t support them for anyone.” “We understand the pain of being disenfranchised simply because of our identity,” Dr. Miguel de la Torre of Denver’s

George Dean and Ortensia Lopez

to engage in the oppression of other groups due to their identity makes us no better than those who continuously and historically marginalize us.” The strategy being pursued by the forces opposed to samesex marriage was made clear by a series of internal memos from the National Organization for Marriage, obtained by the Human Rights Campaign during a court proceeding and released in March. “The strategic goal of this project is to drive a wedge between gays and blacks -- two key Democratic

constituencies,” one memo states. Another discusses recruiting “glamorous” Latino artists and entertainers in order to make heterosexual-only marriage “a key badge of Latino identity.” Voters of color are too smart to fall for these cheap, divideand-conquer strategies. We understand that there are political factions cynically seeking to exploit fear of America’s growing diversity, factions whose only hope of success is to pit groups of Americans against each other. Look at the political forces leading the charge against same-sex marriage. Look at the forces seeking to roll draconian anti-immigrant laws or blame poor people of color for the mortgage meltdown and economic crisis. The casts of characters overlap so much as to be nearly indistinguishable. This is not an accident. They know what they are doing. And so do we. The truth is that the president’s statement, while historic, is not enough. Rev. Jesse Jackson was right to express disappointment that President Obama is willing to leave the issue to the states. If the black civil rights movement had been content with such a strategy in the 1960s, Jim Crow would have survived far longer than it did. No southern state would have ended forced segregation on its own at the time the 1964 Civil Rights

Letter to the Editor

SPEAK OUT!

Dear Editor: I read your article regarding “Eddie-0-Afro.” I was a kid when I heard that, but I remember. In fact, I remember my grandmother, the late Mabel W. Purvis telling me how she had one of the largest AFRO routes in East Baltimore. She had several paperboys under her jurisdiction and one of them became a state senator--Nathan Irby Jr. I would think it would be appropriate to place my grandmother’s name on your list of people from the days of “Eddie-0-Afro.” I would love to attend your program at the Reginald Lewis Museum of African American History. Thank you. Mark Ty Purvis

Act was passed. “If the states had to vote on slavery, we would have lost the vote,” Rev. Jackson told the Los Angeles Times. “If we had to vote on the right [for blacks] to vote, we would have lost that vote.” This shouldn’t be a partisan issue. In a memo made public last week, Republican pollster Jan R. van Lohuizen, who worked for President Bush’s 2004 reelection campaign, wrote, “Polling conducted among Republicans shows that majorities of Republicans and Republican leaning voters support extending basic legal protections to gays and lesbians.” Van Lohuizen urged GOP leaders to back off their opposition to equal treatment for same-sex couples, lest being on the wrong side of history marginalize them permanently. He sensed the tide turning, something voters of color understand well. This is the great civil rights struggle of our era. Marriage equality will succeed because we will not let ourselves be divided. As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, “If one of us is not free, then none of us are truly free.” George Dean and Ortensia Lopez are co-chairs of The Greenlining Institute, www.greenlining.org.
