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.

Leader Calls Voter Registration Fraud Charges ‘Bogus’ By Alan King AFRO Staff Writer 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 perpetrator 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

Our foremost economists have concluded that it would be almost impossible to resolve our struggling housing market. Working together with President Obama, Maryland Gov.

What’s truly frightening is that other States are now in step with South or economic progress. The immigration laws passed in many States – like Arizona’s SB 1070 currently being considered by the United States Supreme Court – are convenient tools for social control. Like the Jim Crow laws in the early to mid-20th Century American South, the new immigration laws enable some struggling citizens to blame “those people” for their failure to achieve instead of asking hard questions about systemic economic and social inequities.

It’s Not McDonough’s Mind I’m Worried About Heber Brown, III

Much has been said about Maryland State Delegate Pat McDonough’s

month, he characterized African American youth at the Inner Harbor as “Black Youth Mobs.” He cited an alleged incident where he and his wife were driving in downtown Baltimore and supposedly 50 to 100 Black youth began to walk near his car. He was so afraid, he said, that he ran the red light to escape. He also cited a much-publicized incident where a tourist was attacked and robbed on St. Patrick’s Day. His solution? State police, a “solutions summit,” a citywide curfew, and more press conferences. It should be no surprise that these types of characterizations

as safe harbor for some of the most racially prejudiced and bigoted views of Black people. I don’t put the spotlight on The Sun as if it is the sole offender, however, it is one of the easiest places to observe the results of racially prejudiced characterizations of Black youth. Local politics also helps to create the framing through which we see Black youth. Despite schools, recreation centers, public pools, and the summer youth jobs program being closed or wholly inadequate because of budgetary constraints, state government is still committed to building a multimillion dollar youth jail in East Baltimore with Mayor Rawlings-Blake’s support. This reinforces the frame that Black youth are predisposed to violence and in need of incarceration much more than education, recreation, and employment. The frame and storyline that are championed in the media toward Black youth in Baltimore that would not be tolerated toward non-Black youth and young adults.

is – if you believe the popular narrative that’s held up about Black youth in Baltimore. I’m not interested in attacking Delegate McDonough because he said “Black Youth Mob.” in play by Republicans and Democrats alike. The frame that they would like us to view Black Youth through is one that suggests that our young people are: out of control, predisposed to crime, disinterested in bettering their lives, and worthy of the most egregious treatment by law enforcement. You can see the frame in play throughout the city’s media and politics – not least of which on the pages of the Baltimore Sun. The Sun and many other outlets frame the story of Black youth in such a way that invites the worst of human character to the foreground. The Sun’s online comments section serves

have never heard anyone characterize them as a “mob” that’s terrorizing the surrounding community. In addition, on St. Patrick’s Day this year hundreds of White young adults were openly drinking and getting drunk in Canton’s O’Donnell Square and trashing the area while Baltimore Police stood by and did nothing. The harshest language and tactics are reserved for Black youth. I’m not surprised by Delegate McDonough’s comments or support the dehumanizing characterization of Black youth. However, I do get worried when Black people start echoing

the same sentiments and supporting the same harmful storyline about our youth that’s championed by those outside of our community. South African Freedom Fighter, Steve Biko, once said, “The greatest weapon in the arsenal of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.” If Black Baltimoreans internalize the storyline about Black youth that’s created by those who have shown no tangible commitment to the well being of our community; then we will be positioning ourselves to turn on our own children. youth, but we should be reminded that Black youth make no more or no less foolish decisions than any other group of young people. Our children are no aberration. All youth make decisions during their formative years that most responsible adults would frown upon. I know I did. However, I’m glad that I was surrounded by Black people who loved me and refused to use the oppressor’s language and storyline to characterize my missteps. They lovingly corrected me and provided me the wherewithal to learn from my mistakes and do better. We as responsible Black adults in Baltimore can do better by our youth by speaking up when they are demonized in local media, boycotting those Baltimore businesses that won’t hire them, and pulling our votes from those politicians who overtly or covertly dig political ditches in hopes that they fall. If none of that is possible, then at the very least we should not surrender our minds to the vulgar perspectives about Black youth that are spewed by those with no allegiance to our community. When we believe the best about our youth, we believe the best about ourselves. The inverse is also true. Rev. Heber Brown, III is pastor of Pleasant Hope Baptist Church in North Baltimore.

Cuckoo for Coco! Coco Jones The “Let It Shine” Interview with Kam Williams

of your performance interests? CJ: Unfortunately, not. It is the exact same work any eighth grader would do.

A fresh-faced, bright-eyed, Southern beauty, 14-year-old Hollywood Records recording artist Coco Jones will grace television sets across the world on June 15 when she stars in the Disney Channel original movie “Let It Shine” opposite Tyler James Williams and Trevor Jackson. Coco plays the role of “Roxie,” a teenage singing sensation whose music label is sponsoring a songwriting contest at a teen club. “Cyrus DeBarge” (Williams) writes a contest-winning song about his love for Roxie but, when he’s too shy to claim it as his own, his best friend, “Kris McDuffy” (Jackson) takes the credit. Based on the play Cyrano de Bergerac, “Let It Shine” relates a tale of young love with an underlying message about

KW: What do you plan to study in college? CJ: I’d love to major in Music. I love what I do, but I want to really understand it, more in depth. KW: The Judyth Piazza question: What key quality do you believe all successful people share? CJ: Determination. You have to be willing to put in the extra time and the extra practice to be the best. Also, no matter what responses you get from your work, you have to be determined not to give up on your dreams! KW: What advice do you have for anyone who wants to follow in your footsteps? CJ: and work at it to be the best. And always, always have fun!

Coco Jones KW: What interested you in the role of Roxie in “Let It Shine”? CJ: Singing, dancing, and acting! The part was right up my alley. Plus, the thought of playing a rock star was like a dream for me. KW: The movie is based on the Cyrano de Bergerac. Did you read the original play in preparation for the part? CJ: I read a lot of summaries about the story. I also watched “Roxanne,” the movie starring Steve Martin. KW: The lead characters’ names have been changed slightly from Cyrano and Roxanne to Cyrus and Roxie. Has the story been changed, too? CJ: around today’s music industry, featuring Gospel and Hip-Hop music. KW: The movie is also a musical. How much did you get to sing? CJ: soundtrack.

“A

KW: What message do you think people will take away from the movie? CJ: The main message of this movie that everyone will take

Another great message that girls will take away from Roxie is I think that they will watch Roxie trying to do the same thing with her clothes, make-up, and her entire performance. Over the course of the movie, she learns to be herself, to develop her own style, and to not change herself to please others. KW: Harriet Pakula Teweles says: You’re only 14. How do you balance the demands of school and career? CJ: Well, sometimes it is hard because my schedule is crazy. I am homeschooled, so my school travels with me. My parents have one rule for me: I can’t do any of this if I have any C’s on my report card. KW: Is your online coursework mostly an extension

EXPERIENCE

THAT SHOULDN’T BE MISSED. A FLAT-OUT MASTERPIECE!”

KW: The Tavis Smiley question: How do you want to be remembered? CJ: As a sweet Christian girl, who was always loving and kind to everyone. KW: Thanks again for the time, Coco, and best of luck with “Let It Shine.” CJ: Thank you so much for having me! “Let It Shine” premieres Friday, June 15 at 8 PM (7 PM Central) on the Disney Channel.

Yet Another Adaptation of the Beloved Grimm’s Fairytale Film Review by Kam Williams The primary problem with Snow White and the Huntsman is that it was released right on the heels of Mirror Mirror. Sure, a new version of Snow White has been brought to the big screen about once a decade since its debut in 1902, but how much of a call could there be for another just a couple of months after the last one opened in theaters? reinterpretation carefully courts the teen demographic via the popular vampire theme coupled series fame, opposite Chris Hemsworth, the hunky heartthrob who plays Thor in the Marvel Comics franchise. But it’s Charlize Theron who turns in the picture’s sole dynamic performance as Queen Ravenna, a vain villainess in constant need of reassurance that she’s still “the fairest of them all” from her magical mirror. Like a bloodsucking vampire, she preserves her No. 1 status by literally draining the youth out of all of her comely competition. The narcissistic grand dame keeps Snow White imprisoned in a dungeon with plans to suck the life out of her as soon as the blossoming beauty comes of age. Somehow, the spunky girl escapes, taking refuge in the forest following a spectacular mountaintop plunge down a waterfall reminiscent of Harrison Ford’s iconic scene in The Fugitive. Meanwhile, back at the castle, the miffed monarch dispatches Eric the Huntsman to track down and slay Snow White. However, the widowed warrior shifts loyalties as soon as he sets eyes on her and wises up about evil Ravenna’s true nature.

Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV

“A STUNNING AND EPIC CINEMATIC ODYSSEY THAT WILL TOTALLY BLOW YOU AWAY.”

special effects-driven affair, its incessant display of technical wizardry, notwithstanding. Chiclet-toothed, ingénue of the moment Kristen Stewart. A brazenly-blasphemous overhaul of Snow White designed to exploit the trendy vampire formula.
