Jstylez Presents “NEW SEASON ” Live On New Year’s Eve By Gloria Zuurveen Editor-in-Chief INGLEWOOD—In the book of Proverbs 18:16, it says, "A man's gift makes room for him". From a child Joshua Mitchell’s gift has made room for him to expand and grow into the man he is today. Better known as “Jstylez”, Mitchell’s love for music has led him to do great and marvelous things like create and produce music which he will present for all to hear and see during a live presentation of “NEW SEASON” on Monday, December 31 New Year’s Eve night.

Assemblymember Weber Assumes Leadership of Legislative Black Caucus Assemblymember Shirley N. Weber, Ph.D. (D-San Diego) assumed the chair of the California Legislative Black Caucus (CLBC) today. The CLBC, which addresses policy and budgetary issues affecting black Californians, consists of ten African American members of the Legislature, including two Senators and eight Assemblymembers. “I am extraordinarily grateful to my CLBC colleagues for their trust and support as we launch into a new and challenging legislative session,” Weber said. “Now more than ever, the CLBC has a vital role in ensuring

Shirley N. Weber that the needs of the African American community are addressed by lawmakers. Aside from tackling the persistent challenges of poverty, educational inequity, over-incarceration and underemployment, we are faced with leadership in Washington that fosters a climate of hatred and violence against minorities, women and immigrants. This caucus will join in solidarity with our colleagues in the Latino, API, LGBT and Women’s caucuses against this destructive trend.” Weber, who was elected Please Weber, page 3

they can get help by telling the whole story so others can know that they too can come through situations. Mitchell said he believes God wants His people to reach others and not to be selfish by loving God and keeping Him to themselves without telling the whole story of where He has brought them out of. He said, “God brings us out to teach others how to come out.” Mitchell said from a child he was always fascinated by music and that he would listen to artists like Michael Jackson. He said his older sister would play R&B all the time and it was constantly in his ears so he would play those tunes on the piano, an instruments

Rep. Waters Statement on Republican Voter Fraud in North Carolina WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA43) issued a statement on voter fraud allegations in the 2018 midterm election for North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District. The results of the race – which were initially projected in favor of Republican Mark Harris who had a 905-vote lead over Democrat Dan McCready -- are under investigation after evidence of illegal activity by operatives associated with Mark Harris’ campaign was uncovered. “I am utterly disgusted by the evidence of voter fraud in the 2018 midterm elections in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District. According to media reports, Republican operatives orchestrated a fraudulent operation on behalf of Republican candidate Mark Harris’ campaign for the U.S. Congress against a Democrat, Dan McCready. The operatives, led by Republican Leslie McCrae Dowless – an employee on Mark Harris’ campaign who was convicted and served time in prison for felony fraud and perjury charges— encouraged voters in Bladen and Robeson counties to request absentee ballots and illegally collected the ballots. At least one voter claimed that she handed over her ballot even though it had not been completely filled out and sealed. [1] “This fraudulent operation also appears to have specifically targeted communities of color in the 9th District. Not only was there an unusually high volume of absentee ballots requested

in the 9th District, but nearly 36 percent of African American absentee ballots and 55 percent of Native American absentee ballots were never mailed in.[2] Voters have signed sworn affidavits alleging their ballots were stolen, and Republican operatives have gone on the record admitting that they were paid by Mr. Dowless to illegally collect ballots. [3] This is not what Democracy looks like. “As a sitting member of the U.S. Congress, an African American woman, and a lifelong champion of civil rights, I am beyond the point of outrage. Far too often, we are witnessing Republican-led efforts to suppress the votes of Americans in minority communities by passing strict voter identification laws in Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Wisconsin, and North Carolina; closing down 868 polling places from Arizona to North Carolina; thwarting early voting in Indiana, Florida, Nebraska, and Ohio; and creating a socalled exact match policy that disqualified voters if their names did not precisely match Please see Waters, page 3

he learned to play at the tender age of 8. He said when he was in elementary school he used to go to the piano and play tunes he had learned from other artists like Jodeci, SWV and the Blackstreet Boys to name a few.

Camille Cosby Speaks to the Black Press About Hate Groups, Racism, History and Voting Rights By Stacy M. Brown

NNPA Newswire Correspondent @StacyBrownMedia

Racism and prejudice are omnipresent and internalized within America’s institutions, media and myriad entities. One example can be traced to the Voting Rights Act of 1965, according to Camille Cosby, wife of imprisoned Bill Cosby. While her husband languishes in a Pennsylvania prison, Mrs. Cosby said it’s important to keep his case at the forefront of the public’s awareness because of the injustice done. She also wanted to remind Black America of the importance of the Voting Rights Act that she long ago predicted would be dialed back by politicians who sought to deprive African Americans of their socalled inalienable right to vote. And, in an editorial she wrote exclusive for Black Press USA prior to the 2018 midterm elections, she urged African Americans to vote for justice, equality and democracy. “The American people have been dangerously close to being governed by a dictatorship… intent on serving its own greedy interests even, when it results in eradicating the laws that protect humanity,” Mrs. Cosby said. “Many of today’s politicians…especially those who are heavily financed by particular corporate entities…are becoming increasingly dangerous enemies of our human rights.” She continued: “However, history teaches us that we, the People of the United States, can purge this danger from our nation’s political offices. Indeed, President Richard Nixon’s corrupt presidency was finally brought to an end when the people rose up and demanded that their representatives be held accountable. We must do the same today.” That the Voting Rights Act had even been tampered with

“All African Americans, regardless of their educational and economic accomplishments, have been — and are — at risk in America, simply because of their skin color,” says Camille Cosby is indicative of the society black Americans are faced with, Mrs. Cosby said. “No other Americans are subjected to this oppressive nonsense,” she said. For those who might mistakenly believe that Mrs. Cosby is simply speaking out because of her husband’s predicament, she easily and understandably scoffs at such a notion. After all, she and Mr. Cosby have donated more than $200 million to Historically Black Colleges and Universities as well as dozens of integrated schools – most of whom have rescinded honorary degrees to Bill Cosby but hadn’t returned the millions of dollars the family has donated. The Cosbys have also loaned their extensive African art collections to museums and other institutions of higher learning. Following the murder of her only son, Ennis Cosby, more than 20 years ago in Los Angeles, Mrs. Cosby wrote an essay in which she spoke Please see Cosby, page 3

By Othor Cain Editor The Mississippi Link Some white Mississippians voted for hate Tuesday while most black Mississippians voted for hope. The special election for U.S. Senate in the magnolia state clearly boiled down to deciding between the future or the past, between coming together or dividing a state even more. Espy There was a clear difference in the candidates on the ballot this week. Mississippians, over the course of the last three weeks of the campaign, got a glimpse of the real Cindy Hyde-Smith, who was appointed to replace Thad Cochran when he resigned for health reasons. On Nov. 2, after a supporter praised her, she said, “If he invited me to a public hanging, I’d be on the front row.” Her Facebook page shows a photo of her wearing a Confederate soldier cap while holding a musket, with a caption: “Mississippi history at its best.” She was also caught on video saying, “There’s a lot of liberal folks in those other schools who maybe we don’t want to vote. Maybe we want to make it just a little more difficult. And I think that’s a great idea.” After being outed, she said she was joking. Some local pastors also said she was joking. No, those comments weren’t a joke, not in Mississippi with its history of lynching and violent voter suppression; they are blatant racial appeals. For you biblical scholars, one only has to read the gospel according to Matthew; there in Chapter 12 verse 34, “You brood of vipers! How can you speak good things, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth

speaks.” This is who Hyde-Smith is. Her comments were so hateful that Walmart, Major League Baseball, Union Pacific, Pfizer, Amgen, AT&T and others asked for the return of donations they made to her campaign. Though symbolic in gesture, they made for good headlines. Jesse Jackson wrote: “Mississippi has been notorious for its racial divisions. Hyde-Smith “Everybody knows about Mississippi Goddam,” Nina Simone used to sing. This is where lynching was used to intimidate African Americans in opposition to the emancipation of the slaves. This is where civil rights activists were murdered for the crime of simply trying to register people to vote.” This is the choice that Mississippi made Tuesday. However, I contend that the best choice, the clear choice was Mike Espy, the first black Mississippian to be elected to Congress since Reconstruction and the first black Secretary of Agriculture, appointed by Bill Clinton. Espy vowed on the campaign trail that he would work to increase paid family leave and the minimum wage and he supported expanding Medicaid funding. His campaign was a call for Mississippi to move forward. The majority of the people in Mississippi did not have the courage to move forward. Clearly the hate was too massive to overcome; the fear far too crippling. Poor white Mississippians voted against their own interest and now we will all suffer as a result.

EDUCATION & COMMUNITY NEWS Joint Statement from L.A. Unified and Community Leaders On School Policing and Discipline LOS ANGELES – – Superintendent Austin Beutner met last month with leaders from the Brotherhood Crusade, Social Justice Learning Institute, Suits in Solidarity, academics from the UCLA Bunche Center for African American Studies, and leaders from the Los Angeles Unified School District and the Los Angeles School Police Department (LASPD) to discuss school policing and discipline. The meeting was called in response to a recent report published by Million Dollar Hoods, a project from the Bunche Center for African American Studies. The report, “Policing Our Students,” analyzed data LASPD arrests, citations and diversions between 2014 and 2017. The findings of that report identified concerns of disparity with arrests and citations of students of color and numbers of arrests involving students under 14 years of age. As a result, Superintendent Beutner invited attendees to have an open and transparent conversation about the

data and LASPD’s processes of interacting with youth. Recognizing the progress and work that LASPD has accomplished, and to espouse their shared vision to decrease youth contact with School Police, the group agreed to collaborate on tangible steps to make this vision a reality. Specifically, the group will work to identify policy recommendations aimed at eliminating citations and arrests for minor offenses and where legally possible. The primary target populations are middle and elementary school-aged African American and Latino youth, who are overrepresented in the data. In addition, the group will work to identify strategies to increase restorative practices and prevention services. “Los Angeles Unified remains committed to advancing progressive school policing and discipline reform,” said Superintendent Beutner. “There is progress to be made to ensure every student is learning in a welcoming, safe and positive school environment.”

In 2013, Los Angeles Unified passed the School Climate Bill of Rights, which aims to improve school culture and decrease punitive discipline approaches that infringe on instructional time. "The meeting was incredibly productive. It was very clear that everybody at the table believed that improving outcomes for students is a primary goal. The Superintendent is committed to forming a working group tasked with outlining a strategy to end arrests on middle schools and elementary schools while simultaneously bolstering the availability of alternative community-based resources. I think that is the right kind of leadership, and I look forward to supporting the ongoing process," said Isaac Bryan, Public Policy Advisor for UCLA’s Bunche Center and Public Policy Director for Million Dollar Hoods. “The UCLA Bunche Center is committed to being an independent academic

partner in this effort to improve outcomes for students. By delivering the eye-opening power of research and working collectively with the broader community, we hope to advance this initiative to end racial disparities at all points of contact between youth and school police and to adopt new alternatives to arresting young students,” said Kelly Lytle Hernandez, UCLA Professor of History and African American Studies, Director of the Bunche Center and UCLA Project Director for Million Dollar Hoods. "I thought the meeting was honest and a little contentious at times, but very productive and clearly a step in the right direction. If we can work together toward a goal of zero tolerance policy of arresting elementary and middle school students, we will achieve something meaningful for students of color,” said Kerman Maddox, Co-Chair, Suits in Solidarity. “We look forward to working with Superintendent Beutner to significant-

ly change discipline outcomes for students of color while simultaneously dramatically improving school police and community relationships,” said George Weaver, Special Programs Administrator, Brotherhood Crusade. “All parties involved in this process share a genuine and authentic desire to maximize the opportunity for students to succeed in school and in life. This desire is accompanied by mutually agreeable efforts to eliminate punitive discipline and increase resourced youth development support for minor offenses committed by elementary and middle school students.” The Superintendent’s working group will help community leaders and the LASPD to continue to work together on school and student safety and school police best practices to ensure that all Los Angeles Unified students have a welcoming and safe environment to learn and achieve academic success.

She is joined on the CLBC leadership team by Senator Steven Bradford as vice chair, Assemblymember Autumn Burke as secretary, and Assemblymember Jim Cooper as treasurer.

fiercely about America’s hate and racism. She blamed America for teaching Mikail Markhasev, her son’s killer, to hate black people because of the various and pervasive forms of racism in our society. “I believe America taught our son’s killer to hate African Americans. After Mikail Markhasev killed Ennis on Jan. 16 1997, he said to friends, I shot a nigger. It’s all over the news,” Mrs. Cosby wrote Dr. Alvin F. Poussaint, an expert on race relations and family friend of the Cosbys told CBS News

after the essay was published that Mrs. Cosby felt the media had played down the racial aspect of the case. “This young man didn’t like black people. He used the word nigger” Poussaint said. “I think that this was played down so much that Camille felt the need to present this to the American public.” Poussaint noted that the crime had been called a “botched robbery,” but that Markhasev had shot Cosby in the head and did not take his cash, watch or car. “I think there’s reason to believe he shot Ennis Cosby because Ennis Cosby was a black man,” Poussaint said. Camille noted that the killer of her only son probably did not learn to hate black people in his native country, Ukraine. Where, she noted, the black population is near zero. She added, he was not likely to have seen “America’s intolerable, stereotypical movies and television programs about blacks,” which were not shown in the Soviet Union before the killer and his family moved to America in the late 1980s. She also wrote about the risk of being black in America. “All African Americans, regardless of their educational and economic accomplishments, have been — and are — at risk in America, simply because of their skin color.” Poussaint, a psychology professor at Harvard agreed. “She’s saying that, as long as you have hate groups that are targeting black people, there’s a risk that they may randomly pick any black person and kill them, “Poussaint said. Mrs. Cosby writes that propaganda against people of color is evident in the representation of holy figures in Christianity, who have been “recreated in images of whiteness.” “In some ways, it creates or endorses white supremacist kinds of imagery within religion, which has been a problem for people of color and has been a problem for African Americans.” In 1997, Mrs. Cosby wrote: “African-Americans, as well as all Americans, are brainwashed every day to respect and revere slave-owners and people who clearly waffled about race. In truth, the enslavement of millions of Afri-

cans immeasurably enriched the treasuries of America’s government and individuals. “Interestingly, several slave-owners’ images are on America’s paper currencies: George Washington ($1), Thomas Jefferson ($2), Alexander Hamilton ($10), Andrew Jackson ($20), Ulysses Grant ($50) and Benjamin Franklin ($100). “Grant was the last U.S. president to own slaves. Even Abraham Lincoln ($5) said, ‘I do not stand pledged to the prohibition of the slave trade between the states… I, as much as any man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the White race.’ “America’s educational institutions’ dictionaries define ‘black’ as ‘harmful; hostile; disgrace; unpleasant aspects of life,’” Mrs. Cosby said. Meanwhile, she said, “White” is described as “decent; honorable; auspicious; without malice.” “A medical school at the University of Texas in Galveston conducted a controversial study primarily on black babies from 1956 to 1962. The researchers withheld an essential fatty acid from the babies’ formulas that humans need for the growth of the whole body and nervous system,” Mrs. Cosby said. “Those black babies were used as laboratory animals, and several of the infants died during the course of the study. Previously, this research had been done on dogs. This is just one of several unethical medical studies on African-Americans that has been documented.” In 2018, Mrs. Cosby says: “Our ancestors fought for the right to [vote]. They were jailed, were beaten, were killed for fighting for our right to vote. Yet, too often, we do not exercise that most important right. We overlook the midterm elections because we forget how greatly they can impact our lives. “But, as I learned from [Montgomery County District Attorney] Kevin Steele’s election in 2015, a corrupt politician at any level is a danger to the American people, and even more so when that politician has promised to act in service of his own toxic ambitions and racial hatred.”

Rep. Waters Statement on Republican Voter Fraud in North Carolina (Continued from page 1) records because of typos, missing hyphens, or clerical errors in Georgia. “This is not merely a local or state issue – this is a matter of national concern. I join my colleagues in calling for credible and thorough investigations of any and all voter fraud claims in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District election by the state elections board. If, as it appears,

the voting rights of American citizens have been violated, then I demand that the perpetrators be prosecuted and punished to the fullest extent of the law. Furthermore, based on the evidence of voter fraud by Harris campaign operatives that has already been uncovered, I believe that the U.S. House should refuse to allow Mark Harris to be seated in the 116th Congress.”

CHURCH & COMMUNITY NEWS

Most Protestant Churchgoers Still Abstain When It Comes To Alcohol By Carol Pipes NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Most churchgoers say the Bible teaches against drunkenness. But that doesn’t stop about 4 in 10 from taking a drink now and then. While 41 percent of Protestant churchgoers say they consume alcohol, 59 percent say they do not. That’s a slight shift from 10 years ago, according to a new study by Nashville-based LifeWay Research. In a 2007 phone survey by LifeWay Research 39 percent of Protestant churchgoers said yes they consumed alcohol while 61 percent said no. Gallup surveys over the last 75 years have typically shown that two-thirds of all American adults have occasion to drink alcoholic beverages including 63 percent in 2018. “While alcohol consumption continues be seen as mainstream in the United States, churchgoers’ attitudes about drinking haven’t changed much in the past decade,” said Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research. Almost 9 in 10 of churchgoers (87 percent) agree that Scripture says people should never get drunk. That’s up from 82 percent in 2007.

But when it comes to total abstinence, fewer than a quarter (23 percent) of Protestant churchgoers believe Scripture indicates people should never drink alcohol. A majority (71 percent) disagree. The share of churchgoers who say Scripture teaches against any kind of alcohol consumption has decreased six percentage points over the last decade. In 2007, 29 percent said Scripture directs people to never drink alcohol; sixtyeight percent disagreed. When Christians drink socially, many churchgoers believe they could cause other believers to stumble or be confused. In 2017 60 percent

agree and 32 percent disagree. The portion who say drinking socially could cause others to stumble dropped slightly from 63 percent in 2007. Researchers also found slightly more than half of churchgoers say Scripture indicates all beverages, including alcohol, can be consumed without sin (55 percent) and that Christians exercise biblical liberty when partaking alcohol in reasonable amounts (54 percent). Attitudes and behaviors related to alcohol use vary based on age, geography, denominational affiliation and other demographic factors. Male churchgoers are more likely to say they drink

alcohol compared to women (48 percent vs. 37 percent). Lutherans (76 percent) and Methodists (62 percent) are more likely to say they imbibe than Baptists (33 percent), non-denominational (43 percent) and Assemblies of God/Pentecostals (23 percent). Churchgoers ages 18-34 are evenly split on their alcohol consumption with 50 percent saying they drink and 50 percent saying they don’t. Forty-one percent of churchgoers ages 35-49 say they drink, while 59 percent do not; 44 percent of 50- to 64-year-olds say they consume alcohol, while 56 percent do not. Churchgoers age 65 and above were the least likely age group to say they drink alcohol with

32 percent saying yes to drinking alcohol and 68 percent saying no. Among churchgoers, those with a higher education are more likely to say they drink than those with less education. Churchgoers with a graduate degree are most likely to say they drink alcohol (62 percent) followed by those with a bachelor’s degree (59 percent), some college (46 percent) and those who are high school graduates or less (26 percent). “Churchgoers’ perspectives on alcohol are not changing very fast,” said McConnell. “The majority believe that biblically they can drink, but they choose not to.”

NEWS 6 Ways To Save On Amazon This Holiday Season (and into 2019!) (BPT) - This time of year, family and friends gather to celebrate the holiday season. It's a joyful time, but it can also be stressful - especially if money is tight. Financial expert and author Eva Macias, who specializes in leveling the financial playing field for all families, regardless of income, says that it's possible for people to de-stress and enjoy the holidays even if their budgets are stretched thin. All it takes is a strategic, bargain-hunter's mindset. "The holidays don't have to be a strain on your family's budget," she says. "You just need to spend wisely, look for deals, and realize you don't have to do it all yourself. The holidays should be a time to enjoy being with family - not stress about money!" Macias's top tips and tactics to save money this holiday season include: 1. Sign up for Amazon's discounted Prime membership. If you're an EBT cardholder or Medicaid recipient, you can get all the benefits of an Amazon Prime membership for the discounted price of $5.99 per month. The majority of US Prime members have access to free one-day delivery or faster, while all receive the best of entertainment through Prime Video and Prime Music; Prime Reading; Prime Photos and more; with the ability to cancel anytime. I highly recommend signing up - it will save you money and time, not only during the holidays, but also all year long!

You can learn more and try out a free 30-day trial at http:// amazon.com/qualify. 2. Create a budget for your holiday spending. A budget will be your best friend during the holiday season. Figure out how much you can spend without going into or increasing your debt. Once you get this total, split it up equally among the people you are buying gifts for this holiday. A common pitfall to setting a holi-

day budget is making it too tight, so give yourself some leeway for unexpected costs that pop up. 3. Shop with Amazon Cash. Making purchases with cash is a savvy way to stick to your holiday budget as it makes you more conscious of what you're spending. So, try using Amazon Cash instead of your debit or credit card. It's a simpler way to shop and will help you limit your spending, plus you will still get

access to Amazon's great deals and prices. You can visit more than 30,000 participating stores - including pharmacies like CVS and convenience stores like 7-Eleven to add cash to your Amazon balance. This method is quick, easy and has no fee. Plus, for a limited time, you can get a $10 Amazon credit when you add $40 to your Amazon Cash balance. 4. Scout out deals. Look to purchase gifts big and small by

regularly tracking deal offers from retailers. Amazon's Lightning Deals offer new deals daily that help you save money and allow you to find the best prices on items you need, want and love, while 'watch a deal' alerts ensure you never miss out on a discount! 5. Take advantage of subscriptions. Families can maximize savings this season by enrolling in programs such as Subscribe & Save, which allows you to subscribe to items you frequently buy (such as diapers, baby food and household products), and have them shipped to you for free on a regular basis. You'll not only save up to 15% on these purchases, but also save time and energy used on trips to the store. 6. Not in a hurry to get your package? Earn rewards with No-Rush shipping.

NEWS Supreme Court Hears Important Civil Forfeiture Case By Stacy M. Brown, NNPA Newswire Correspondent @StacyBrownMedia The Supreme Court this week is considering limiting the practice of civil forfeiture, which law enforcement has used since the War on Drugs mostly against AfricanAmericans, Hispanics and those in poor communities. At the heart of arguments in the nation’s highest court are two questionable forfeitures. The first occurred in October of 2016. Alexander Temple, a Maine resident, was pulled over on Interstate 95 in New Hampshire for a routine traffic stop. Police in that state seized $46,000 from Temple, claiming they felt it would be used for illegal activity. Even Though Temple was released without ever facing a single criminal charge, the police kept the cash. The second is Tyson Timbs, a recovering opioid addict from Indiana who pled guilty to dealing drugs in 2013. After he was sentenced to probation and ordered to pay a fine, the state seized his $42,000 Land Rover in an act of civil forfeiture. That despite the fact that Timbs proved that the funds he used to purchase the SUV were not from drug sales, but from a life insurance policy he received from his father. “I’m feeling very good,” Timbs told ABC News as he entered the High Court this week. “This has been a very difference experience for me with so much attention.” Timbs attorney Wesley Hottot argued the seizure of the Land Rover violated the 8th Amendment’s

protection against excessive fines, a Constitutional guarantee that should be upheld in all states. A majority of the justices reportedly seemed receptive to the idea. And, if they at least limit the practice of civil forfeiture, many a minority could regain previously lost property. Civil asset forfeiture is the ability of authorities to seize private property used in a crime. However, most legal experts agree that the practice has enriched states and law enforcement and usually the forfeitures occur without a court hearing. In the 26 states and District of Columbia that report forfeiture activity, law enforcement agencies collected more than $254 million in funds and property in 2012 alone, according to an analysis by the Institute for Justice, a non-profit libertarian public interest law firm. “This is an incredibly important case,” said Christopher Riano, lecturer in constitutional law and government at Columbia University, told ABC News.

“Historically, whenever the court takes these types of cases, the court does usually move to incorporate the federal guarantees against the states.” The Southern Poverty Law Center reported that, since the advent of the War on Drugs, law enforcement agencies have used civil asset forfeiture laws to strip Americans of billions of dollars in cash, cars, real estate, and other assets. Under these state and federal laws, officers are legally empowered to seize property they believe is connected to criminal activity – even if the owner is never charged with a crime. In most states, the agencies are entitled to keep the property or, more typically, the proceeds from its sale. An analysis by the Southern Poverty Law Center found that while federal forfeitures totaled $93.7 million in 1986, this revenue grew by more than 4,600 percent – to $4.5 billion a year – by 2014. Forfeitures handled by

states have also poured millions, perhaps billions, of dollars into law enforcement agencies. As a result, there has been a massive transfer of wealth and assets from American citizens – and especially the most economically vulnerable – to police, who can largely use the funds however they see fit, the SPLC reported. Many states do not even require local agencies to track or report seized property. In civil forfeiture cases, as many as 80 percent of people who have their assets seized are never charged with a crime. In most state and federal courts, the government is only required to show there is a preponderance of evidence – more likely than not – that the property abetted a criminal act. Homes have been seized from owners whose children or grandchildren were accused of committing drug crimes, even though the owners themselves were never implicated. In one money-laundering case in Florida, SPLC officials noted that law enforcement seized approximately $49 million but did not bring a single indictment. The drug war has unduly harmed racial minorities, and its civil forfeiture provisions are no different, according to the SPCL. Because of racial profiling, Black and Hispanic motorists are disproportionately searched and put at risk of having their cash assets seized, even though Black and white drivers are equally likely to be found with narcotics. A 1993 investigation by The Orlando Sentinel revealed that

nine of every 10 motorists who were stopped and stripped of their cash by police in Volusia County, Florida, were either Black or Hispanic, and three out of four were never charged with a crime. In Philadelphia, where nearly 300 houses are seized annually, African Americans make up 44 percent of the population but 63 percent of house seizures and 71 percent of cash forfeitures unaccompanied by a conviction, according to the SPLC. Forfeiture is also most likely to affect economically disadvantaged communities: One study found that areas with high income inequality were targeted for civil forfeiture operations, likely because these police departments have limited funding and are inclined to use forfeiture to secure needed revenue. The profile of suspects who have their assets seized, a researcher observed, “differ greatly from those of the drug lords, for whom asset forfeiture strategies were designed.” Now, as the Supreme Court considers the law, many like Temple and Timbs wait with great anticipation. “For ordinary citizens, the real-world consequences can be devastating,” Timbs’ attorney argued in a brief to the Supreme Court. “The Excessive Fines Clause secures a single, unitary right: freedom from excessive economic sanctions that are at least partly punitive. “To be sure, that right can be violated in countless ways, using countless tools; in this regard, governments are endlessly innovative, ‘with more and more civil laws bearing more and more extravagant punishments.’”

STATE & NATIONAL NEWS Shutting Down Criticism Of Israel And The Targeting Of Marc Lamont Hill By Michael Z. Muhammad and Richard B. Muhammad From the Final Call PHILADELPHIA— After remarks calling for justice for Palestinians and justice in Israel, Marc Lamont Hill, a noted academic, award-winning author and news analyst was attacked by Jewish groups, who forced his ouster from CNN. The 39-year-old advocate for international justice, who happens to own a bookstore in the city, responded by saying his remarks were not anti-Semitic but came out of his desire to speak truth—not to injure anyone. Despite his reasoned argument and willingness to engage with critics, the Jewish interpretation of his words not only cost the Philadelphia native his CNN position but also led to a push at Temple University to force him out of his position as a tenured professor. In an op-ed published Dec. 1 in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Mr. Hill says he meant no malice towards Jews or the state of Israel. “First, I strongly believe that we must reject antiSemitism in any form or fashion. This means not only preventing physical violence against Jews, but also ugly antiSemitic images, stereotypes, conspiracy theories, and mythologies,” he wrote. “My use of ‘river to the sea’ was an invocation of a long history of political actors—liberal and radical, Palestinian and Israeli—who have called for their particular vision of justice in the area from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. For many, justice will come from a two-state solution. For some, like me, justice will come through a single bi-national democratic state that encompasses Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza.” His Oct. 29 remarks to the United Nations Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People included a call for “international action that will give us what justice requires, and that is a free Palestine from the river to the sea.” Jewish groups, including the ADL and others, pounced quickly. They denounced him as an anti-Semite, declaring his words echoed calls for destruction of the state of Israel issued by some Palestinian groups. Next came his firing from CNN and a Temple University board member and Jewish groups said he should be dismissed from the school. Gideon Levy, writing in the Jewish newspaper Haaretz, said, “In a matter of hours, the skies collapsed into well-orchestrated hysteria. Seth Mandel, an editor of the Washington Examiner, accused Hill of having called for Jewish genocide; Ben Shapiro, an analyst on Fox News, called it an anti-Semitic speech; Consul Dani Dayan tweeted that Hill’s remarks were like a ‘swastika painted in red,’ the AntiDefamation League said they were tantamount to calling for Israel to be wiped off the map. The inevitable outcome was not

Marc Lamont Hill, advocate for international justice, was accused by Jewish groups of anti-Semetic remarks.

long in coming, and CNN fired the rebel analyst on the very same day.” According to Electronic Intifada, a pro-Palestinian group, the words spoken by the professor point to simple recognition of reality: Historical Palestine, what is today Israel, the occupied West Bank, and Gaza Strip, is not free between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. Philadelphia writer and Final Call contributor Jehron Muhammad noted on Facebook.com that “if you look historically, on both sides of this issue, people have used the phrase, ‘from the river to the sea.’ Marc in his defense, if given a chance to defend himself, said in words … was no different if he said from ‘sea to shining sea.’ ” The ADL and other blind supporters of Israel were apparently looking for the right opportunity to attack Mr. Hill and misinterpreted and blew his words up out of proportion. Why now? The question was answered in a Jewish Forward article headlined, “Marc Lamont Hill’s Problem didn’t start with Jewish Bashing.” The article says, “the U.N. speech may just have been the straw that broke the camel’s back. It was only a month ago that Hill came under fire for his close ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.” “Hill has been reluctant to acknowledge the notorious bigotry of NOI and its leader. In 2010, he made clear that he was ‘excited’ to hear a talk by Farrakhan, even though he felt that Farrakhan had been ‘a little too pro-Obama lately.’ In the summer of 2016, Hill once again advertised his admiration for Farrakhan when he posted a photo of himself and the NOI leader with the text, ‘Been blessed to spend the last day with Minister Louis Farrakhan. An amazing time of learning, listening, laughing, and even head nodding to music. God is Great.’ ” Supporters charged Jewish groups targeted Mr. Hill as part of an effort to punish and isolate anyone who comes near Min. Farrakhan. Final Call senior editor Askia Muhammad

referred to these attacks in a Washington Informer column called “How to Pass the ‘Farrakhan Litmus Test.’” “Here is how the hustle works,” he wrote. “If the minutest of associations with Minister Farrakhan can be found with any prominent Black personality, that person must, sooner rather than later, conspicuously denounce the Muslim leader or their career or their organization will be ruined. It’s called the ‘Farrakhan Litmus Test.’ ” But even some Jewish groups and writers joined the chorus in defense of Mr. Hill. “In the heavy-handed reality that has seized control over dialogue in the United States, there’s no room for expressions that may offend the Israeli occupation. On a liberal day it’s permissible to say “two states” as long as you do it in a whisper,” wrote Gideon Levy, a Haaretz columnist and a member of the newspaper’s editorial board. His piece was headlined, “In U.S. Media, Israel Is Untouchable. You can attack the Palestinians in America uninterrupted, call to expel them and deny their existence. Just don’t dare say a bad word about Israel, the holy of holies.” “What would have happened if Hill had called for the establishment of a Jewish state between the Jordan and the sea? He would have safely continued holding down his job. Rick Santorum, the former senator, said in 2012 that ‘no Palestinian’ lives in the West Bank,” observed Mr. Levy. “Nobody thought of firing him. Even Hill’s critic, Shapiro, has called in the past for ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in the territories (he backtracked on it a few years later) and nothing happened to him.” “Israel and the Jewish establishment keep on accusing the media, including CNN, of being slanderers of Israel. There’s no worse joke than that. Try to publish a critical article about Israel in a mainstream newspaper in the West—it’s getting more and more difficult, more often than not, impossible,” continued Mr. Levy. “The key word of course is anti-Semitism. A lot has been written about the use Israel and its supporters make

of anti-Semitism. And it works wondrously, it’s a magic word that silences people. There has not yet been a single critique of occupation that isn’t tagged as anti-Semitism. Everything is anti-Semitism: Hill is antiSemitic because he favors a one -state solution, Roger Waters is an anti-Semite because that’s how Gilad Erdan described him at a conference … about propaganda in Germany, UNRWA is anti-Semitic, and of course, BDS. The whole world is against us.” Mr. Levy added, “It turns out that the Jews are not as hated as Israel would like: Only 10 percent said they had any negative feelings about them.

Nearly four times as many people said they don’t like Muslims. Along with its worrisome aspects, the survey points up more than a few truths you can’t deny. Twenty-eight percent of those questioned said that antiSemitism in their countries is a result of Israeli policy. A third believe that Israel takes advantage of the Holocaust to advance its positions. One in five thought the Jews have too much influence in the media. “Fire more analysts who dare to criticize Israel or suggest just solutions to the occupation—and more people surveyed will say what everyone knows: The Jews and Israel have an incredible degree of influence in Western media. Now you can call me an antiSemite, as well,” he concluded. Social critic, author, and intellectual Cornel West said, “The important thing is that we’ve got to stand with our dear brother Marc.” “All he is saying is that a Palestinian baby has the same value as a Jewish baby,” Mr. West told therealnews.com. Congresswoman-elect Rashida Talib (D-Mich.), one of the first two Muslim American women elected to Congress, urged support for Mr. Hill. “Calling out the oppressive policies in Israel, advocating for Palestinians to be respected, and for Israelis and Palestinians alike to have peace and freedom is not anti-Semitic. @CNN, we all have a right to speak up about injustice any and everywhere,” she tweeted.

I applaud your resilience,” Winfrey told a cheering crowd in Soweto. “I say there’s no such thing as failure. Failure is just a mistake trying to move you in a better direction.” The philanthropist and former talk show host, who opened an academy for girls in South Africa a decade ago, acknowledged the high unemployment, poverty and other social challenges persisting in the

South Africa for the 36th time, told young people not to give up. “Because it is your fresh perspectives that are going to bring about unprecedented innovation for this country. We need you.” The Nelson Mandela Foundation cohosted the event, one of a series of activities honoring Mandela this year. The anti-apartheid leader and South Africa’s first black president died in 2013 at age 95. Winfrey said she stayed with Mandela and his wife Graca Machel for 10 days during one of her visits.

“I loved him so and he was my favorite mentor because he was a man who could have sought revenge, but instead he sought reconciliation,” Winfrey said. Mandela “could have crushed his opponents with his power. But instead he chose to defeat them without ever dishonoring them.” Machel, an advocate for women’s and children’s rights, joined Winfrey on the stage and also spoke about hardship. “We are a wounded society,” Machel said, noting pervasive violence against women and children.
