The winner and still champion! ■ Voters give the president four more years BY DAVID L. HORNE, PH.D. OW CONTRIBUTOR

President Barack H. Obama triumphed again against unrelenting opposition, some of it far beyond mere campaign rhetoric, for the highest political office in the country, and was re-elected to a second term as president of the United States. By the next morning, he had accumulated 303 electoral college votes (270 needed to win) to 191 for the challenger, Mitt Romney, and a solid 2 percentage points lead in the popular vote count (more than 3 million votes more than the challenger). Florida, again having trouble with its ballot count, as voters in that state were still standing in line to cast their ballots through 11 p.m. Tuesday night, finally reported an Obama victory Wednesday morning, and the president’s total went to 332 electoral votes, a stunning thumping of his opponent. By comparison, in 2008, then-candidate Obama received 365 electoral college votes to 173 for John McCain. George W. Bush received 286 to John Kerry’s 251 in 2004, and Bill Clinton received 379 to Bob Dole’s 159 in 1996. Although President Obama’s current number is very, very substantial, Republican comments in the aftermath of the election already seem to show they do not regard the president’s victory as a mandate that they must respect and take to heart. Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican leader, said in his public comments that the president now had another chance to come to the political center to work with Republicans on moving America forward, but that the president had to understand that compromise is a two-way street, and the Republicans intended to make no concessions against their principles. “Now it’s time for the president to propose solutions that actually have a chance of passing the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and a closely divided Senate, step up to the plate on the challenges of the moment, and deliver in a way that he did not in his first four years in office. To the extent he wants to move to the political center, which is where the work gets done in a divided government, we’ll be there to meet him halfway.” John Boehner, Speaker of the House, added, “that by keeping Republicans in control of the House, voters made clear there is no mandate for raising taxes.” “If there is a mandate,” he told the Associate Press, “it is a mandate for both parties to find common ground and take steps together to help our economy grow and create jobs.” Five things are very clear in the election results, however, and need little interpretation: 1) The Democrats strategically out-organized the Republicans in the battleground states, winning all but North Carolina. 2) The Republicans seriously miscalculated who the 2012 electorate is and focused almost exclusively on White male voters. They got 72 percent of that group, but still lost pretty convincingly. 3) The Citizens United case influenced, but did not determine, the presidential election of 2012. This was the most expensive election in American history, with more than $2.6 billion spent during the two presidential runs, but money did not decide the winner. 4) President Obama does have significant political capital from this election. He is only the second Democrat to be re-elected to a second term since

Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1930s (Bill Clinton was the other one ), and he is the first president since FDR to win election with a national unemployment rate above 7.8 percent 5) The Republicans lost several Senate races they were projected to win, and the Democrats increased their majority in the Senate while losing a few more seats in the House. The chances for more gridlocked government are great, but ObamaCare is safe, and so are the other major legislative achievements of President Obama’s first four years. Conventional wisdom that the African American vote count would be discernibly less than in 2008 because the gay marriage issue distressed many

point and many voters stood in lines for more than seven hours to express their views. Early exit polls showed that young people (ages 18-29) represented 19 percent of the voters, with President Obama winning the majority of those votes over Gov. Romney by 60 percent to 36 percent, according to the National Exit Poll (NEP) conducted by Edison Research. That figure was one point higher than in 2008, when young voters represented 18 percent in the presidential election, according to the NEP. Mary Kay Henry, president of the 2.1-million member Service Employees International Union (SEIU) released this statement after the re-election of president: “By re-electing President Barack Obama to lead our country, working people voted for a vibrant middle class fueled by good jobs, where everyone has a fair shot at the American Dream. Voters rejected the

“We have fought our way back and we know in our hearts that for the United States of America, the best is yet to come.” —Barack Obama, president of the United States, from his election night speech.

Black ministers, proved not to be a factor. The Rev. Emanuel Cleaver II, an ordained minister, and the current head of the Congressional Black Caucus, had said in a recent interview with The Root before the election: “Will there be some Black voter drop because of the same-sex marriage issue? The answer is, unquestionably, yes. Will it be significant? No. Will Black folk vote for the president with some anger toward that position? Yes. But the Black voter is growing more sophisticated, in part because the president has been elevated to the highest office on the planet, so more Black Americans are paying attention now and in the last four years than in the past. They are sophisticated enough to know that it is not a smart move to reject an individual for public office on one issue, because they would be opposed to Mitt Romney on 313 issues and opposed to Obama on one. So I believe they will come out and vote, and some of them will vote and hold their noses.” Clearly, the Rev. Cleaver was a prophet on this

notion that the rich should be allowed to run roughshod over our economy with shameful tax breaks and let off the hook by not investing in America. In states like New Hampshire, Ohio and Nevada working people rejected Mitt Romney’s ‘your on your own’ vision and embraced a country where our deeds are guided by the core American value that ‘we’re all in this together.” Similar sentiments were released by the American Federation of Teachers: “The importance of this election was far greater than casting a ballot for one candidate over another—as important as that exercise in democracy is,” said a statement released by AFT President Randi Weingarten. “The American people voted to create opportunity and shared prosperity by sharing responsibility, and to reject the cynical ‘you’re on your own’ philosophy. The results of this election are a declaration by the American people that to rebuild

a strong and vibrant middle class and ensure a voice for all, we all have to be in this together. Americans voted for a vision for our nation that says government has an essential role that includes protecting our families in times of crisis, investing in public schools as a foundation of our democracy, guaranteeing access to affordable healthcare, and ensuring retirement with dignity after a lifetime of hard work.” Moving on, the president, according to his acceptance speech Tuesday night, sees his major mandate as finishing the job he started in rescuing the nation’s economy and attracting more jobs, along with other projects that will come up. In his Tuesday night speech, he said: “By itself the recognition that we have common hopes and dreams won’t end all the gridlock, or solve all our problems or substitute for the painstaking work of building consensus and making the difficult compromises needed to move this country forward.” “But that common bond is where we must begin. Our economy is recovering. A decade of war is ending. A long campaign is now over, and whether I earned your vote or not, I have listened to you, I have learned from you and you have made me a better president.” He should be helped in this regard by a new group of freshmen senators, including 10 new Democratic women. With three Republican female senators (and one independent who caucuses with and votes with Republicans) added to the Democratic ones, the U.S. Senate will have the largest number of female senators in its history—20. Effectively, one-fifth of the U.S. Senate will be female in the 113th Congress, starting in January 2013. These include: re-elected senators Maria Cantwell of Washington, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, and Dianne Feinstein of California. Joining them in 2013 will be Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota. Incumbents not up for re-election are Patty Murray of Washington State, Barbara Boxer of California, Barbara Mikulski of Maryland, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, and Kay Hagan of North Carolina. Republicans include newby Deb Fischer of Nebraska, alongside incumbents Susan Collins of Maine, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. (Murkowski is technically an independent; she won re-election as a write-in candidate, but caucuses with Republicans). Exactly what difference that will make is still unknown, but women legislators do have the general reputation of being very good budgeters and negotiators. Another important aspect of the Nov. 6 elections is that for the presidential decision, 71 percent of the voters within the large and growing Latino population voted for President Obama, while only 27 percent voted for Romney, and the African American vote was 93 percent for President Obama. Women provided 55 percent of the national vote total for the president, and Jews 53 percent for Obama, while Romney got 72 percent of the White male vote. This was the first presidential election in which the minority group votes became the majority in many states. The Republican Party may become irrelevant as a national political party, according to some pundits, if it does not correctly adjust itself to the realities of America’s modern demographic changes. White is right may not be enough anymore at the national level.

A Veterans Day look-back at the My Lai Massacre ■ Some are still dealing with the consequences BY WILLIAM COVINGTON OW CONTRIBUTOR

Much like it was in 1968, My Lai is a small hamlet close to the coast of central Vietnam. Before the massacre occurred that year, it was known as “Pinkville,” and that is how the massacre became known at first—as the Pinkville Massacre. Today, the village is home to farmers and fishermen, just as it was more than 40 years ago. Somehow My Lai became the center of a bitterly contested region during the Vietnam War. Early one morning in March 1968, Company C (or Charlie Company), 1st Battalion, 20th Infantry Regiment, 11th Infantry Brigade, landed there by helicopter and attacked the village. By the time they left four hours later, hundreds of old men, women and children lay dead, killed in cold blood. For the time, My Lai, or Pinkville, had ceased to exist. Though the village was a total wipeout, there would be national and worldwide consequences. Charlie Company was mostly made up of young infantry recruits fresh out of training at Fort Benning, Ga. According to Kenneth Hodges, a former Charlie Company sergeant, the transition from civilian to soldier requires very rigorous training in how to kill—rifle training, grenade training, hand-to-hand combat, close-order fighting, bayonet training and others. “You would have a drill sergeant shouting in your ear ‘breast stroke to the groin series.’ You would take your M-16 affixed with a bayonet and stab the practice dummy between the legs right into what would be the penis area while everyone participating is yelling ‘Kill! Kill!’” “The spirit of the bayonet was to kill,” Hodges said. “You wanted soldiers highly motivated. The drill sergeant’s way of motivating was to have a response, a command and response from the soldiers. “He would ask, ‘What is the spirit of the bayonet?’ And you would respond with, ‘to kill, sergeant, to kill.’ So I feel soldiers were motivated along these lines. “I was one of the sergeants that trained Charlie Company,” said Hodges. “I was pleased with the way they turned out. They turned out to be pretty good soldiers.” The men of Charlie Company arrived in Vietnam from Hawaii in 1967. They had no combat experience, but had performed well in training and were considered the best company in their battalion. Their average age was 20. They had been drawn together from all over America. An Army report would later describe them as a typical cross section of American youth assigned to most combat units. “Most of us were middle-class income from middle-class families, with exception of the African Americans in our company,” said Fred Widmer, a former company radio operator. “Our company consisted of guys that were from all across the United States—Indiana, Pennsylvania. . . . I’d say you had a good cross section of the total population of the United States at that time. A lot of times when we were first in the country we would go villages up and down the highway. We would play with the kids in between pulling guard duty, and at one bridge in particular there was one boy that would hang there with the GI’s. We nicknamed him six fingers because he had an extra thumb, we would always take him stuff—candy, gum and take pictures with him. GI’s with the kids. That meant a lot and you got a chance to meet a lot of people.” Said Michael Bernhardt: “There was no one else but us. We were in this company and this place all alone. We had a company of men that came from one country; we all came from the same culture. We were dropped 10,000 miles away and we felt close because there was no one else to feel close to. Barely a month after our arrival in Vietnam, we were deployed in operations of patrolling jungles in Quang Ni providence around the area we all knew as Pinkville, which was known to be sympathetic to the enemy. When we first started losing members of the company it was mostly through booby traps and sniper fire. We never got into a main conflict, per se. If you could see who was shooting at you, you could actually shoot back one on one.” Booby traps were the main problem in the weeks leading up to the massacre. In a unit of little more than 120, Charlie Company had four men killed and 38 wounded, almost all by land mines booby traps and snipers. The fact that they could seldom find an enemy to shoot at caused frustration to grow. The distinction between enemy sympathizers

“ ” I feel they were able to carry out the assigned task, the orders to kill children, woman, and elderly because they were soldiers…

and simples civilians rapidly eroded. Varnado Simpson told his daughter he had to ask himself who’s the enemy. “They had little kids over there that would shoot you in the back or stab you when you walked away. How could you distinguish between who the enemy is the good or the bad? All of them looked the same. That’s the reason the war was so different. It wasn’t like you could tell German’s over here or Japanese over there. They all looked alike, North and the South, so how can you tell?” As a professional soldier, Hodges was taught to carry out orders, and at no time did it cross his mind to disobey or to refuse to carry out an order that was issued by his superiors. “If one of my men would have refused to shoot I shutter to think what would have been the repercussions,” he said. “It’s hard to say now what I would have done looking back. He would have been in serious trouble. He could have faced court-martial. He could have been shot on the spot for refusing an order in the face of the enemy, in face of hostile fire. If someone refuses to carry out an order they would have been in trouble.” When reminded that it was later determined that there was no hostile fire, he responded: “At the time we did not realize that there was no hostile fire.” How were these 18- and 19-year-old kids able to commit such acts without questioning it? he was asked. “I feel they were able to carry out the assigned task, the orders to kill children, woman, and elderly because they were soldiers,” Hodges said. “They were trained that way. It’s either you or the enemy, and those people in that village—the children the women the old men—were considered the enemy.” Questioned as to whether he thought the orders were morally right and that following such orders was behaving in a moral fashion? he said: “I feel we carried out the orders in a moral fashion. We did not violate any moral standards.” Despite the total absence of hostile fire Lt. William L. Calley, the ranking officer of Charlie Company, continued to order his men to shoot. Most obeyed, but some refused. “Lt. Calley ordered certain people to shoot these people,” said Harry Stanley. “I was one of them and I refused. He told me that he was going to have me court-martialed when we got back to base camp. I told him, ‘That’s not an order; that is craziness,’ so I felt like I did not have to obey. If you want to court-martial me you do that if you can get away with it.”

“I felt like it was horrible, just a terrible thing to be going through,” said Stanley. “I felt like a red-blooded American boy just like the rest of the guys that was there, you know. To see Black and White guys doing it did not make any difference. It just seemed like a horrible thing. We all came from the same place, and I know they all had to have the same values as I had somewhere along the line. If they didn’t get it in school they got it in religion. You could pick it up from a stranger, but to go and do something like that was immoral to me.” Newspapers in America hailed My Lai as a significant victory, with many enemy dead. For more than a year what really happened in My Lai remained hidden from the outside world. Then the truth came to light. Two years after the massacre, on March 29, 1971, Lt. Calley was convicted of the premeditated murder of 22 Vietnamese civilians. He was sentenced to life imprisonment, but the hue and cry around the nation was great in his defense. Ultimately, he served only three and a half years of house arrest at Fort Benning. But one of the American victims of the massacre may be Varnado Simpson who lived pretty much as a recluse in Mississippi. “How can you forgive?” he wrote in his diary. “I can’t forgive myself for the days, even though it was something that I did and it was something that I was told to do, but how can I forgive? I live with it everyday. It is easy for you to say, ‘Well go ahead with your life,’ but how can you go ahead with your life when this is holding you back? How can I put my mind to anything positive because it is always negative? “There is a part of me that is kind and gentle and there is another part of me that is evil and destructive. There is more destructive in my mind than goodness, there is more wanting to hurt and to kill than wanting to love. I do not let anyone get close to me. That loving feeling and that caring feeling, that’s not there, and all this was caused by My Lai. “My little boy was playing over at his grandmother’s front yard when I was in Jackson, Miss., and some teenagers across the street from his grandmother’s house got into an argument. One was 14 and the other was 15. One of the teenagers ran home and got a gun the other teenager ran in the direction where my little boy was playing and he [the other teen] discharged the weapon and hit my boy while attempting to shoot the fleeing teenager. “My son was hit in the head and he died. I immediately ran out of the house and picked him up and stared at my son and he reminded me of one of the little kids I had killed from the village of My Lai, and I said to myself this is the punishment I received from the horrors I had committed in My Lai. When I returned from my son’s funeral that evening the glass on his photograph had cracked and I decided to leave it like that. “I take 1,200 mg of psychotropic medication four times a day to keep me under control; it prevents me from hurting someone. I have attempted suicide three times to get this feeling out of my head. I believe God still has me here for a purpose. “I feel ashamed for what I did. However, if you go to war it can happen. It can happen after they program you and train you, it can happen; this is reality. This is what war is. War is not something where I shoot at you and you shoot at me. War is killing all types of ways. ”I was 19 when I went to Vietnam I was a rifle specialist 4th class. I was trained to kill, but the reality of killing someone is different from training and pulling the trigger. I knew that day I was going to kill women and children dogs and cats. I knew the women and children were there, but I did not know it was going to happen until it did. I didn’t want to kill anyone. I was not raised up to kill. My first shooting that day was a woman that was running with her back facing me along a tree line. She was carrying something. I did not know if it was a weapon. I just didn’t know. I did know it was a woman and I did not want to shoot a woman, but I was given orders to shoot so I’m thinking when she was running she had a weapon, but when I shot her and she turned over it was a baby. I shot her about three or four times and the bullets just went through her and the baby. “The baby’s face was half gone and I just went blank the programming came to me to just kill and I just started killing. You did not have to look for someone. They were just there. It wasn’t hard to find anyone to kill. “At My Lai I was personally responsible for killing between 20 to 25 people. I would shoot them, cutting their throats, scalping them, cutting off their hands and cutting out their tongue. I did that. I just went and my mind just went.”

Despite all the mud that has been slung during the 2012 presidential election campaign, the allure of making history by helping re-elect Barack Obama was still powerful enough to bring many new voters like 19-year-old Los Angeles resident Kenya out to the polls Tuesday. Kenya’s excitement was palpable as she stood in line at Cienega Elementary School in Los Angeles with her mom and older sister Myeisha. After she cast her ballot, Kenya remembered the excitement among her friend’s about Obama’s election in 2008, and how it inspired conversations like “when will we have our first Asian president.” “My friends have been texting all morning telling me what I should vote on,” said the neophyte voter, the excitement evident in her voice. But it was not only President Obama that drew in Kenya; it was also the many life-affecting propositions that brought her out to vote.

Hahn defeats Richardson; Lacey, Jones-Sawyer win ■ Bass, Waters, Mitchell and Hall retain seats BY CYNTHIA E. GRIFFIN OW MANAGING EDITOR

The third time is the charm for Reggie JonesSawyer, who Tuesday was elected to represent the 59th Assembly District. After dropping out of the Los Angeles City Council 10th District race in 2002 and barely losing out to Holly Mitchell in the contest for the 47th Assembly District in 2010, Jones-Sawyer will now join Mitchell in Sacramento. She was re-elected to the Assembly by defeating Keith Mc Cowen 83.4 to 16.6 percent. Jones-Sawyer says the key to his success in this district, which is about 70 percent Latino, was reaching out and talking with his Hispanic friends and allies and assuring them that he will take care of their constituents and doing the same thing for African American leaders in the district. Among his top priorities are reducing the high unemployment in the Assembly district. “It’s embarrassing. When I hear about unemployment rates of 8, and 10, over 20 percent in the 59th. That is unconscionable.” The Los Angeles City employee says he is going to use his work experiences to create jobs within his district and then work on a way to duplicate that effort on a statewide basis. Jones-Sawyer says he will concentrate on the billions of dollars of refurbishment’s that need to be

done on state-owned buildings to promote construction trade job-training programs. Additionally, the newly elected assemblyman is looking to generate revenue for the state that can be reinvested in education by selling surplus state property. In other Assembly races, Isadore Hall ran unopposed and was re-elected to represent the 52 District. Diane Feinstein has won re-election to the U.S. Senate, defeating Elizabeth Emken 61.4 percent (5,613,610) to 38.6 percent (3,528,510). In congressional races, Karen Bass easily defeated Morgan Osborne 86 to 13 percent while Maxine Waters collected 70.6 percent of ballots cast versus 29.4 by her opponent Bob Flores. In a hard-fought battle, Janice Hahn reprised her primary win in the newly redrawn 44th Congressional District to defeat beleaguered Laura Richardson 75,678 (60 percent) to 50,393 (40 percent). According to her campaign spokesperson, Dave Jacobson, Hahn is already poised, based on her first year in Congress, to find bipartisan ways to create to solve some of the key issues facing the nation and the district. Jobs is one of those, and Jacobson points to the ports caucus that Hahn partnered with Texans Republicans as an example. Previously the ports had not been a major issue in Congress, but it really is, pointed out Jacobson, noting the connection to job creation and homeland security. In the race for Los Angeles County District Attorney, Jackie Lacey defeated Alan Jackson and

credits running a positive campaign that focused selling her strong points, including 27 years as a successful prosecutor and leader. “We felt in the end voters with would ignore the slick commercials . . . and look at the issues and qualifications., and that turned out to be true in the primary and last night,” says Lacey of her Tuesday win of 55 percent of the vote compared to 45 percent for opponent Alan Jackson. Now, Lacey said, the key issues that must be addressed are realignment (the shifting of inmates from the state prison to the county lockups) and how to keep the crime rate down. She also wants to expand alternative sentencing courts and look at how these can efficiently manage a population of the people who commit lower-level crimes and would benefit form drug or alcohol counseling or mentoring such as veterans who are suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome. “We also want to engage in an active crime prevention program to warn seniors about the financial scams that target them,” said Lacey adding that she also will continue the office’s policy’s regarding juveniles. That includes holding fitness hearings before trying juveniles as adults. “We’ve also got to continue a lot of crime prevention by keeping children in school.” Lacey says that as she puts together her transition team for the D.A.’s office, one of the issues she will be looking at is how suspensions and truancy play into the level of juvenile crime, which she said is way down.

Electoral College BY GEORGE E. CURRY NNPA EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

WASHINGTON (NNPA)—After riding to victory in Ohio on the strength of his successful auto bailout plan and a come-from-behind victory in Virginia and possibly Florida, President Barack Obama was riding high on Wednesday. Obama was ahead of Republican challenger Mitt Romney Tuesday night by approximately 1 million votes in the general election, but is expected to win the Electoral College by a much larger margin when electors meet on Dec. 17 to officially determine who becomes the next president of the United States. Of the 538 electors, Obama needs only 270 to win. He is poised to collect approximately 322 votes in the Electoral College to Romney’s 206. If that figure holds up, it will be down from the 365 electoral votes Obama won in 2008. Not only did Obama become the first Black president in 2008, he also becomes the first African American to win a second term in the House. Following in the footsteps of Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, his election marks the third consecutive time a U.S. president has been re-elected to a second term. Although experts had predicted a long night before a victor would be declared, CNN announced Obama as the projected winner at 11:18 p.m. EST. With the outcome still unknown at the time in swing states Florida, Ohio, Colorado, Virginia and Nevada. Ohio, the Buckeye state put Obama over the top. Obama swept to victory by reassembling his progressive coalition of Blacks, Latinos, youth, unmarried women, Jews, union members and gay men and lesbians. Speaking to cheering supporters in Chicago, Obama said: “While our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up. We have fought our way back. And we know in our hearts that, for the United States of America, the best is yet to come.” Blacks and Latinos voted overwhelmingly in favor Obama, with the president again earning more than 90 percent of the African American vote and 71 percent of Latinos, according to exit polls. Women favored Obama 55 percent to 43 percent, about the same as it was four years ago (56 percent). But there was a sharp division among females, with unmarried women preferring Obama 68 percent to 30 percent and married women backing Romney 53 percent to 46 percent. Among White voters, Romney led Obama 58 percent to 40 percent, three points better than John McCain’s showing in 2008. Obama received only 36 percent of the White male vote, compared with 41 percent four years ago. Blacks of every age group proved that they had Obama’s back: 18-29 (91 percent), 30-44 (94 percent), 45-64 (93 percent) and 65 and above (93 percent). Obama did better with families earning less than $50,000 a year, Romney did slightly better with middle-class voters and held a wider margin among those earning $100,000 or more. Obama again won the youth vote, though by a smaller margin than four years ago. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden carried most of the swing states, including: Michigan, Romney’s birthplace; Massachusetts, where Romney served as

governor; New Hampshire, where Romney has a summer home; Wisconsin, the home state of Congressman Paul Ryan, the Republican vice presidential nominee, as well as Ohio, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Nevada and Virginia. Obama was leading Romney in Florida by about 45,000 votes, or 0.53 percentage points, as of early Wednesday morning. At that time, 99 percent of the state’s 8.27 million votes had been counted. In a brief speech in Boston, Romney said, “I so wish that I had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction. But the nation chose another leader. So Ann and I join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation.” Democrats maintained their majority in the Senate and Republicans kept their grip on the House. In closely watched races, two Republicans who had made controversial remarks about “legitimate rape” and abortion—Todd Akin in Missouri and Richard Mourdock in Indiana—were defeated in their Senate contests. Elizabeth Warren, an outspoken liberal, defeated Republican incumbent Scott Brown in Massachusetts. Rep. Tammy Baldwin will become the first known lesbian to serve in the U.S. Senate after defeating former Gov. Tommy Thompson in Wisconsin.

“This is not just going tobe a loss for Mitt Romney . . . This is going to be a repudiation of the Republican Party.” In a major surprise, conservative Republican Congressman Allen West was defeated by Democrat Patrick Murphy in Florida. West’s district was redrawn to include more Republican voters but that wasn’t be enough to save his seat. Another Black conservative, Saratoga Springs, Utah, Mayor Mia Love, lost her bid to unseat Rep. Jim Matheson, losing by less than 3,000 votes. Obama’s re-election probably means that the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, probably will not be repealed as Republicans had hoped. The president, who made two Supreme Court appointments in his first term, will most likely get an opportunity to make another appointment to the court, possibly two. Depending on who retires from the court, Obama’s appointments could alter the direction of the court, which has been drifting to the right. His first challenge will be a budget showdown with Republicans, who want to reduce the deficit solely through spending cuts. Obama, on the other hand, is insisting on a combination of cuts and increased revenue, including repeal of the Bush tax cuts that favor the wealthy. Exit polls showed that the economy was the top issue on voters’ minds. Although 76 percent of voters said the economy is poor or “not so good,” 54 percent approve of the way President Obama is doing his job. The polls showed that voters blame George W. Bush more than Obama for the sluggish economy. Voters also said they trust Obama more than Romney to protect the middle class. Obama’s re-election victory set off a round of speculation about what Republicans need to do to remain competitive in national politics. Republican strategist Alex Castellanos said on CNN, “This is not just going to be a loss for Mitt Romney . . . . This is going to be a repudiation of the Republican Party. Democrats moved to the middle— new Democrats—and they transformed their party.

Cover Story | Feature Story | News | Across Black America Republicans are still the party of ‘no.’ We’re not seen as having enough solutions.” Another CNN analyst, David Gergen, said Obama needs to make some major concessions to Republicans, but James Carville disagreed, saying elections have consequences. Since the election, everyone has been speculating on whether Tuesday’s outcome will increase the prospect of House Republicans working more closely with the White House. Although no one claimed to have the definitive answer to that question, there were signs than the rancor between the president and conservatives is not likely to evaporate soon. Some conservatives started raising questions about the size of Obama’s victory, saying he should not interpret the results as a mandate. They didn’t raise similar questions in 2000 when George W. Bush was declared the winner after receiving 500,000 fewer popular votes than Al Gore, his Democratic challenger. And Donald Trump was being, well, The Donald. He tweeted about a dozen rants, including: “We can’t let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!” He said in another one, “The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy.” The Electoral College has its roots in the U.S. Constitution. “Article II, Section I of the Constitution, as amended in 1904 by the 12th Amendment, sets forth the requirements for election of the President and Vice President,” said a Congressional Research Service report. It said the Constitution “authorizes each state to appoint, by whatever means the legislature chooses, a number of electors equal to the combined total of its Senate and House of Representatives delegations, for a contemporary total of 538, including three electors for the District of Columbia.” State electoral votes are reported to Congress, which usually meets in a joint session on Jan. 6 following a presidential election. However, because Jan. 6, 2013, falls on a Sunday, Congress will probably meet the following Monday or Tuesday. Vice President Joseph Biden, as president of the Senate, will preside over the joint session. He will open the electoral vote certificates from each state in alphabetical order and pass the certificates to four vote counters or tellers, two appointed by the House and two appointed by the Senate. After the votes are counted, the results will be announced by the vice president. The electoral outcome has matched the popular vote in 47 of the 51 presidential elections since ratification of the 12th Amendment in 1804. The exceptions were 1876, 1888 and 2000 when George W. Bush was declared president after losing the popular vote to Al Gore. No candidate won the majority of the Electoral College vote in 1824, leaving the election of the president to the House of Representatives. As Trump’s comments show, the debate will continue over whether the Electoral College should be replaced by direct elections. The Congressional Research Service report noted, “Proponents of direct popular election argue that it is simple, democratic, and foolproof: the candidates with the most popular votes would win under any conceivable circumstance. Opponents, and defenders of the electoral college, claim that the existing system is an integral and vital element in the U.S. federal system, that it contributes to a stable and ideologically diverse two party system, and that it has delivered the ‘people’s choice’ in 47 of 51 presidential elections since the 12th Amendment came into effect in 1804—what they characterize as an excellent track record.” DISCLAIMER: The beliefs and viewpoints expressed in opinion pieces, letters to the editor, by columnists and/or contributing writers are not necessarily those of OurWeekly.

Unemployment ■ Many millennials looking for work BY CYNTHIA E. GRIFFIN OW MANAGING EDITOR

Demographics were the talk of Tuesday’s election—White voters, male voters, single women voters, Hispanics, African Americans and of course, young voters—the 18-29 year olds (millennials) who represent America’s future and a key swing demographic in many of the battleground election states, according Paul T. Conway, president of Generation Opportunity. But Conway says the stalled U.S. economy is playing havoc in the lives of too many millennials. In fact, in September, millennials faced an unemployment rate of 11.8 percent, and if the labor force participation rates were factored into the calculation the unemployment rate for this group would jump to 16.6 percent. The rate for African Americans and Hispanics is higher, as always. Blacks experienced 21 percent unemployment and Hispanics were at 12.1 percent. What is notable about this population, said Conway, is that they typically have the highest level of disposable income, because those who are working are unencumbered by expenses like mortgages. They are very politically influential and in four elections cycles (2020) will comprise 38 percent of the American electorate. They have volunteered to fight in two American wars; represent a huge percentage of the people who helped rebuild the Gulf Coast after Katrina and have responded in large numbers to the Hurricane Sandy crisis. But Conway points out that in order for America to truly compete with nations like India and China, the United States cannot accept that a large swath of the talent and creativity of the nation are sitting on the sidelines unemployed. What is needed, said Conway, a former chief of staff for the U.S. Department of Labor, is for businesses (particularly small firms) to create the entry-level jobs positions that millennials typically step into as they leave high school, college and postgraduate school. But the uncertainty of what’s going to happen with tax cuts in January and the unstable regulatory environment have made businesses concerned about their margins and thus hesitate to create the entry-level jobs, Conway said. At the same time, he said older workers have been so hard hit by the economic downtown since 2008, that many are taking pay cuts to stay in a job, which again squeezes the creation of more entry-level jobs. Couple this with the reality that many schools, universities and community colleges are not working with their local business communities to turn out students with the training to work in the jobs they are creating and, Conway says, you have a recipe for high unemployment within the millennial population. And that ultimately results in a United States that is not maximizing all its talents and skills.

N.Y.’s Central Park Five documentary reveals ugly truth of juvenile justice ■ Racism, lack of skepticism rife in case BY CYNTHIA E. GRIFFIN OW MANAGING EDITOR

Presumed guilty. In the aftermath of a case where it seems almost everything is strikingly profound, Yusef Salaam—one of five Black and Latino youth who in 1989 were arrested and charged with brutally attacking and raping a White female jogger in New York’s Central Park—threw out that phrase during a recent visit to Los Angeles. He was in the city last weekend to promote the opening of a new documentary that tells the shocking truth about this case. He also talked about the grim reality of life, post initial conviction. “The Central Park Five” is based on a book written by Sarah Burns and turned into a movie codirected by her father; noted filmmaker Ken Burns and her husband David McMahon. It will open at the Landmark Nuart on Nov. 30 and play through Dec 6. The Landmark is located at 11272 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles. Salaam pointed out that despite the fact he and his compatriots were exonerated, in part, by a confession that contained key details of the case the police could never resolve, many people felt he and the other boys got what they deserved for being in the park that

night. Many also felt it was only a matter of time before they would have been arrested and imprisoned for something anyway. That cavalier acceptance of the imprisonment of innocent Black and Latino youth is essentially the key message of the film. “The film looks at all the factors and how they happened, and how to prevent this from happening in the future.” says author Burns. “This is not isolated,” she added, noting that the Innocence Project found that one-quarter of the cases they were able to resolve involved confessions that actually were not true. The Center of Wrongful Convictions and Children and Family Justice Center at Northwestern University School of Law’s Bluhm Legal Clinic also found that false confessions are one of the leading causes of wrongful convictions, accounting for roughly 25 percent of all DNA exonerations. In all studies of false confessions, youth are overrepresented, noted the center, which is the only Innocence Project in the country that focuses exclusively on individuals who were convicted or accused of crimes when they were adolescents or younger. Burns says this happens, in part, because the police can be very effective at creating a sense of imbalance where young people feel it is actually detrimental to avail themselves of their constitutional rights such as a having a lawyer present during questioning.

Yuseff Salaam

Salaam said police also did a good job of keeping him isolated from his mother during the interrogation process. Burns said a big part of the problem in the Central Park Five case was the covert racism that played a part in allowing law enforcement, city officials, the news media and even residents to push aside discrepancies in details and accept the so-called “confessions” This racism also continued to play a part at the end—throughout 1989-90 the trial was covered on the front pages of New York newspapers, but the exoneration was run on back pages. Salaam, said he felt overjoyed and overwhelmed after the real culprit confessed, even though he had already completed his six-and-a-half-year prison and parole terms.

Salaam, who also said he felt he had regained his humanity and dignity, talked about the strain of coming into adulthood with that kind of stigma attached to his life. Salaam was arrested at age 15, released in October 1995 exonerated Dec. 18, 2002, and served 78 months wrongfully incarcerated. As a result of the book and movie, Burns said a number of changes in police procedures have been instituted in locations around the nation. And some policing agencies have found the changes to their benefit as well. One of the key modifications is to videotape confessions from the very beginning, instead of after hours of interrogation. Burns also noted that another intangible change is to urge the media, jurors and other supposedly impartial entities to bring skepticism to the table. Salaam, who said he along with Raymond Santana now spends time talking to youth at schools, said it is also critical for young people to always make sure they put the best face and image forward, despite the presumption and perception of guilt that often surrounds them. Finally, Burns and Salaam say it is key that youth and their families know their rights. Locally, an organization called Chuco’s Justice Center, which is located on the Inglewood/Los Angeles border and focuses on helping youth understand their legal rights, has created a website that details various legal steps youth can use if stopped by the police, face court proceedings or other legal challenges.

‘The Color of War: How One Battle Broke Japan and Another Changed America’ ■ By James Campbell BY GREGG REESE OW CONTRIBUTOR

On the evening of July 17, 1944, a massive explosion rocked the naval munitions depot of Port Chicago in the San Francisco Bay Area. The blast set off the seismometers at the University of California’s Berkeley campus some 40 miles away, and hurled huge chunks of metal into the air, one of them striking an aircraft cruising at 9,000 feet. More than 300 personnel were killed and hundreds more were injured, most of them African American enlisted sailors. This episode, far from the combat theaters of Asia or Europe, nonetheless proved to be a pivotal point in World War II history, because it set off a chain of events that shaped armed forces race relations for the rest of the century. In “The Color of War: How One Battle Broke Japan and Another Changed America” (c2012, Crown Publishers, $30, ISBN 978-0-307-46121-6) historian James Campbell conjoins this story with the Battle of Saipan in June and July of 1944. Largely forgotten now, the capture of this island in the Marianas archipelago afforded the Allies a staging area from which to launch B-29 bomber strikes for the final push into the Japanese Empire. Among the bloodiest

conflicts, with more than 3,000 American and 30,000 Japanese killed, it marked the first time that Negro (as they were then called in polite society) troops engaged an enemy force since World War I. These men were called only as a last resort. Newly integrated in 1942, the U.S. Marines relegated its Black servicemen to the menial tasks of cargo handlers and ammo bearers. These menial duties were not without risk, however. A basic tenet of military logistics holds that cutting off the supply chain impedes a fighting unit’s effectiveness, and the Japanese were hell-bent on preventing the Marines from getting a foothold. During the course of off-loading the essential supplies on the beach in Saipan, Pvt. Kenneth Tibbs was cut down by artillery fire, the first Black Marine to die in combat. As casualties mounted, commanders were forced to issue rifles to men of the 18th Depot Company, a unit that had not been trained as infantrymen, to shore up the holes in the front lines that had been depleted by the carnage across the beachhead. By the time the island had been secured, less then a thousand Japanese troops survived out of a defense force of 32,000, a testament to a samurai ethos that prompted them to choose between going down fighting or committing suicide rather than enduring the shame of surrender. Immediately afterwards, Imperial Army General and Japanese Prime Minister Hideki Tojo resigned, along with his entire cabinet.

Dismissal of lawsuit paves way for NFL to return to Los Angeles ■ AEG commits $15 million to affordable housing CITY NEWS SERVICE

A coalition of housing and environmental justice activists agreed to drop an active lawsuit and pending litigation against the state and city of Los Angeles over the proposed $1.2 billion Farmers Field NFL football stadium downtown. The Play Fair at Farmers Field Coalition and Anschutz Entertainment Group came to an agreement over the group’s concerns that the developer and the city had not addressed potential negative effects of the project on the low-income neighborhoods of Pico Union, downtown and neighborhoods in South L.A. The coalition agreed to dismiss its litigation in exchange for AEG’s commitment to establish a $15 million trust fund to build affordable housing units within a three-mile radius of the stadium for extremely low-income residents and “living wage” workers at the new project. The developer separately committed to spend about $2.5 million to enhance or add parks and open space, as well as for air quality improvements and benefits to bus riders. The lion’s share of the commitment will not go

into effect until AEG secures an NFL team to play in Los Angeles, according to Becky Dennison with the Los Angeles Community Action Network, which is a member of the Play Fair Coalition. The coalition sued the state in late August over a law that gave special protections to AEG’s proposed stadium project to the alleged detriment of lowincome residents around the proposed site of the stadium near L.A. Live and Staples Center. The group was also preparing a lawsuit against the city for alleged violations of the California Environmental Quality Act. “To be honest, we felt the city really ignored the public, and AEG stepped up to resolve many of the issues where the city did not,” Dennison said. AEG President and CEO Tim Leiweke said, “This began as a legal negotiation but soon evolved into a cooperative dialogue about how we could work together to achieve the common goal of serving the needs of all segments of the community on important issues such as affordable housing.” “With this important milestone, for the first time in almost two decades the city of Los Angeles is finally poised to see the return of the NFL,” Leiweke said. “With this settlement in place, the project can move forward to spur job creation and offer an even more robust package of measures benefiting the community.”

The campaign of island-hopping the Pacific into Imperial Japan required massive amounts of ammunition and other ordinance from the industrial war chest in the continental United States. To fulfill these demands, a virtually all-White officer corps initiated fierce competition between the individual units of the all Black munitions handlers. The clear-cut racial divide between command staff and labor-bearing enlisted crews was aggravated by the fact that both groups had little or no training in the safe management of hazardous explosives. On top of this, civilian experts from the stevedore’s union and the Coast Guard warned Navy brass about these dangerous work conditions, well in advance of this almost inevitable blast. The subsequent refusal

after the blast by 50 of the surviving sailors to continue these hazardous loading practices led to a court-martial that became known as the Port Chicago Mutiny. Despite the diligent efforts by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Legal Defense and it’s chief counsel, Thurgood Marshall, all 50 defendants were found guilty, given dishonorable discharges, and sentenced to 15 years in prison. However, shortly after the war, they were granted clemency and released. (One was given a pardon by President William J. Clinton in 1999.) Port Chicago and the trial in its aftermath raised the issue of ethics in a martial culture where following directives is part and parcel of the status quo. It highlighted specific situations in which military personnel are obligated to defy unlawful orders in unjust circumstances, as with the Vietnam War’s My Lai episode, or the Abu Ghraib prison abuses in Iraqi. Another offshoot of the Port Chicago legacy is the theory, postulated by journalists and researchers that the explosion was the result of a deliberate detonation of a nuclear device to evaluate the effects of such a blast on human beings. Campbell covers this premise as well, noting that the components that vaporized Hiroshima had been transported by rail to Port Chicago before the final voyage to the South Pacific. Also cited are correspondence and documents from General Leslie R. Groves, J. Robert Oppenheimer, and other principle figures in the development of the atomic bomb. James Campbell is a seasoned military historian whose previous tome, “The Ghost Mountain Boys,” covered the exploits of the 32nd Infantry Division during the New Guinea campaign from 1942 on ward. During the course of his research, he uncovered the story of the 96th Engineer Battalion, an African American outfit that constructed airstrips, roads, and logistical structures essential to Douglas Mac Arthur’s push north from the South Pacific. This in turn, was the inspiration for The Color of War. “The Color of War” stands as an example of “revisionist” history, demonstrating that the dark underbelly of human corruption manifests itself even in the pursuit of lofty goals.

Gang member sentenced to death for Jamiel Shaw slaying ■ Judge denied defense plea for new trial BY FRED SHUSTER CITY NEWS SERVICE

A gang member who gunned down a Los Angeles High School football standout near his Arlington Heights home because he was carrying a red Spider-Man backpack was sentenced to death last week. Jurors recommended in May that Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ronald H. Rose impose the death sentence on Pedro Espinoza, 23, who was convicted of first-degree murder for the March 2, 2008, shooting death of Jamiel Shaw Jr., 17. Jurors also found true the special circumstance allegation that the murder was carried out to further the activities of a criminal street gang. Prosecutors alleged that Espinoza shot Shaw to improve his status in the gang. In rejecting a defense request for a reduced sentence, Superior Court Judge Rose said Espinoza murdered “a defenseless victim in cold blood” and bragged about it. Shaw, who was unarmed and had no gang ties,

was “executed” as he lay “defenseless and incapacitated on the ground ... in front of the family home,” Rose said. The judge described the victim as “a good, decent teenage boy.” Shaw was shot once in the head and once in the abdomen. The teenager, who had a collection of Spider-Man items in his bedroom, had been walking home carrying a Spider-Man backpack that made Espinoza mistakenly perceive him as a gang rival, according to prosecutors. Espinoza sat motionless, showing no apparent reaction during the hearing. Before pronouncing sentence, Rose also rejected a defense motion for a new trial in the case. As part of the motion, Espinoza attorney Csaba Palfi argued that one of the jurors wore red to the trial at least once, indicating prejudice against his client and sympathy with the prosecution. “I don’t think he got a fair trial,” Palfi said. Deputy District Attorney Bobby Grace, however, countered that Palfi was attempting to use a “fashion police defense,” adding that “jurors can wear whatever they want to wear.” The judge said ordering jurors to not to wear certain colors would be akin to “turning power over to the gangs.”

Jamiel Shaw

Family members of the victim, many wearing red, wept as Rose described the murder. Shaw had encountered Espinoza on the sidewalk and “tried to walk around him,” the judge said. At that point, “the defendant pulled a gun, shot him in the stomach, then walked around him and put a bullet in his head.” Rose said he imagined Shaw’s last emotions were fear and sheer confusion as to why this was happening. In victim impact statements prior to sentencing, Shaw’s parents spoke briefly. The boy’s mother, Anita Shaw, was serving with

Across Black America | OpEd

the U.S. Army in Iraq when she was told of her eldest son’s death. “I still don’t understand why it happened,” she said. Her husband, Jamiel Shaw Sr., said Espinoza thought he was “big, bad Pedro. But now that it’s time for judgment day, he doesn’t want to be executed.” Like all death penalty proceedings, the Espinoza case is subject to automatic appeal to the California Supreme Court. During the trial, Deputy District Attorney Allyson Ostrowski told jurors that Espinoza, a Latino, “chose to execute a 17-year-old for the color of his skin and the color of his backpack,” calling the slaying of Shaw, who was Black, a “cold-blooded, calculated execution.” Jurors also heard a Probation Department employee’s account that Espinoza—while a teenager in a juvenile camp—said he was “down for death row.” Ostrowski said the remark “definitely showed that the defendant had aspired to get to where he is today.” Another of Espinoza’s attorneys, M. David Houchin, had asked jurors to recommend a life prison sentence for his client. “My plea for Mr. Espinoza’s life is not a plea for leniency,” Houchin said, arguing that the death penalty “should be meted out to the worst in our society.” Jamiel Shaw Sr. had told jurors that his son’s athletic prowess had attracted interest from numerous universities, including Stanford and Rutgers, and that the four years since the slaying had been “a nightmare.”

Man held in USC shooting had security guard license ■ Halloween party leaves four wounded CITY NEWS SERVICE

The 19-year-old man arrested on suspicion of wounding four people at a Halloween party on the USC campus was identified as a security guard. Brandon Spencer of Inglewood was arrested early Thursday on the campus. A family friend at the apartment complex where he lives told the Los Angeles Times that Spencer was a “good kid.” California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services records reviewed by The Times showed Spencer has a current security guard license. Authorities initially said two people were detained, but it was unclear who the other person was, or if he was still in custody. The gunfire broke out at a party sponsored by the Black Student Assembly and attended by about 400 people. The gunman opened fire on a former Crenshaw High School football star, Geno Hall, who was wounded several times and expected to survive. Three other people, none of them students, suffered wounds authorities called non-life-threatening. USC President C.L. Max Nikias said school officials were “carefully assessing and reviewing all of the

Geno Hall

university’s policies regarding visitors and events held on campus.” Only students with USC identification, or college students with identification from their schools, are supposed to be admitted to on-campus parties. The Halloween shooting came in the wake of an April 11 shooting near the campus that left two USC graduate students from China dead. Two suspects have been charged with murder. The shooting occurred four years after USC sprinter Bryshon Nellum, who won a silver medal at this year’s London Olympics, was shot in both legs at a Halloween party just off campus.

Operation HOPE to hold Najee Ali book signing ■ Autobiography: ‘Raising Hell: A Life of Activism’ Operation HOPE has planned a reception and book signing for Najee Ali, the well-known activist, community organizer, founder and executive director of Project Islamic HOPE. Ali’s autobiographical work is titled “Raising Hell: A Life of Activism,” and the event will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 15 at 3721 S. LaBrea Ave. Ali dates his career of activism from volunteering in the Rev. Jesse Jackson’s 1988 campaign for the presidency. He has since worked for or with such nationally celebrated figures as President Barack Obama, the Rev. Al Sharpton, Martin Luther King III, Dick Gregory, John Hope Bryant, Michael Jackson, Congressmember Karen Bass and Imam W.D. Mohammed. The Gary, Ind., native migrated to South Central Los Angeles in 1975, and he credits his activism with helping to spearhead Sherrice’s Law, which makes it a crime to witness the sexual assault of a minor without reporting it to the police. The law is named after

7-year-old Sherrice Iverson, who was molested and murdered in a Nevada casino by then-17-year-old Jeremy Strohmeyer. Strohmeyer’s friend, David Cash, witnessed part of the assault but never notified authorities. It is considered the first such law named after an African American child in the nation. Ali’s activism has sparked police reform and gang truces. Calling himself “the people’s champion,” he has been outspoken against racism and various forms of injustice. Ali’s story entails his own abuse suffered during childhood and adolescence, gang life in South Los Angeles, his experiences through the L.A. civil unrest from the Rodney King verdict, his own

incarceration, and his life-changing acceptance of Islam. The book discusses 18 behind-the-scenes accounts of his activist involvement in Jackson’s campaign, Obama’s senatorial and presidential campaigns, protests against gangsta Rap’s destructive messages, and the fight against police brutality and racial profiling in Southern California. Along the way, Ali has been involved with such entertainment icons as Jackson and Steve Harvey; civil and social justice activists Dick Gregory, Martin Luther King III, and the Rev. Sharpton; business leaders Magic Johnson, Bryant and Cathy Hughes, and journalists Roland Martin and Tavis Smiley.

Recently there was an article published on the online site Jezebel written by Kirsten West Savali discussing “Hollywood’s Invisible Love Interest: The Overweight Black Woman.” In her article she wrote, “If one is to believe that Hollywood truly pays attention to the desires of its audience and explores those authentic nuances on film, then one has to believe that no one is ever in love with—or attracted to—an overweight Black woman. Never. White filmmakers have ignored her while her Black counterparts, such as Tyler Perry, Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence, have ridiculed her to make millions. Apparently Savali hasn’t been to the movies in a while. For instance, Queen Latifah is a big girl and because she often calls her own shots, so to speak, she gets the guy. And she doesn’t try to ignore the fact that she is a big girl and that some brothers are not necessarily into that type, but the ones that are, definitely are. One of my favorite movies was 2006 “Phat Girlz,” starring Mo’Nique as an unhappy overweight sister finding love in a most unlikely place from a surprising suitor. The movie explores the African male point of view when it comes to what is attractive to them in African women—and big girls win. In my opinion I don’t believe Mo’Nique, Latifah, Loretta Devine or any of the plus-size sisters that work in Hollywood let their size stop them. They’ve

quite make the final cut.” Latifah is doing something about the image of overweight Black women on the silver screen, and she should be commended for that. She’s taking the steps that only a Black woman can initially do, drawing attention to us as women first and size second. Check out the website Mahogany Café (www.mahoganycafe.com). There you will see a bevy of Black women of film and television. Most are not a fashion-model size, and what they bring to the camera far outweighs the heft of their bodies. The bottom line is this: there are very few roles for Black women in Hollywood films and TV shows. If a role calls for a specific type, that type will show up. In the truest since of the word, work matters, not just size.

‘The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal, and the Real Count of Monte Cristo’ ■ By Tom Reiss BY TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER OW CONTRIBUTOR

For a quiet weekend getaway, there’s nothing like a novel. With a novel in your hands, you can travel the world without going anywhere, seeing things your eyes can’t show you. Reading a novel allows you to be someone—or something—else for a while. A good novel is just what you need when you need escape. But as you’ll see in “The Black Count” by Tom Reiss (c.2012, Crown, $27.00 / $29.95 Canada, 414 pages, includes index), your favorite fiction may not be a fiction at all. The knock on the door came just before midnight. Alexandre Dumas, then 4 years old and the future author of “The Count of Monte Cristo” and “The Three Musketeers,” remembered the sound, even as an adult. It was a knock that brought word of his father’s death.

Dumas’ father, Thomas-Alexandre Delisle, was born in 1762 in Saint-Domingue to a fugitive nobleman and a Black slave. Known as a fine horseman, Delisle’s life was idyllic until his father brought him to France in 1776. There, the boy was educated and later changed his name to become, as Reiss calls him, the “original Alex Dumas.” Though he was technically “owned” by his father, Dumas père’s French education and his life as a nobleman’s son was possible, says Reiss, because of several French laws and concepts. Slavery was allowed in France, but the French also

embraced the “undeniable right to freedom” once a Black slave landed on French soil. Though Dumas was dark-skinned, his appearance was “admired and celebrated,” but not as much as his later accomplishments on the battlefield. Much taller than his contemporaries, Dumas was said to look like a centaur when riding. He was extraordinarily strong, wide-shouldered and wellbuilt, and good with a sword. Though he joined the French Revolution as an enlisted man, he quickly worked his way up to general and eventually fought alongside Napoleon. But in 1799, on his way home from Egypt, the great soldier was captured by Italian forces and became a prisoner of war. Released two years later, betrayed by his country, he never fought again. Part classic literature, part biography, and very steeped in French history, “The Black Count” explains the correlation between Dumas’ swashbuckling stories and the man who inspired them. And that’s all good—if you’re into French history, because that makes up a good portion of this book. Author Tom Reiss brings plenty of excitement to Dumas’ story, but it comes between pages and pages of battle descriptions and details that are nice to know but that aren’t necessarily integral to Dumas’ biography. That tended to slow the story down, which often made me lose sight of its importance; specifically, that this inspirational, battle-tested historical and literary figure lived in a surprisingly enlightened time and died in relative obscurity. Reiss tells us why, but it takes awhile to get there. Overall, this isn’t a bad book. It’s a good peek into a slice of history, but it’s slow at times. Be aware of that, and “The Black Count” may be just the right escape for you this weekend.

Said property is being sold for the purpose of paying the obligations secured by said Deed of Trust, including fees and expenses of sale. The total amount of the unpaid principal balance, interest thereon, together with reasonably estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Trustee’s Sale is $210,190.65. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and,

if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 800542-2550 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site www.rtrustee.com, using the file number assigned to this case. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. In compliance with California Civil Code 2923.5(c), the mortgagee, trustee, beneficiary, or authorized agent declares: that it has contacted the borrower(s) to assess their financial situation and to explore options to avoid foreclosure; or that it has made efforts to contact the borrower(s) to assess their financial situation and to explore options to avoid foreclosure by one or more of the following methods: by telephone, by United States mail; either 1st class or certified; by overnight delivery; by personal delivery; by e-mail; by face to face meeting or the borrower has surrendered the property to the mortgagee, trustee, beneficiary, or authorized agent and that the compliance with Civil Code Section 2923.5 was made at least thirty (30) days prior to the date of this Notice of Sale.

If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714573-1965 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case 20120159900362. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site.
