Mother - Queen Community Soldier Happy Birthday 90th

PHOENIX, AZ - Samuel Delbert Whitney of Phoenix, Arizona passed away at the age of 87, but he will live on through his kids … all 54 of them. No this is not an episode of Bill Cunningham or Maury Povich. In the wake of the death of the man his family called ‘Daddy,’ his children gathered together, some meeting for the first time, to celebrate his life. Whitney was well known for a few things: operating a wrecking yard, running several clubs and for fathering a lot of kids. No one is quite sure exactly how many children Whitney had. Lexi Woods, his stepdaughter, said her father told her that she had 41 brother’s and sisters. Whitney’s death revealed that the number count is closer to 54. The children range in age from 69 to 13. Whitney fathered his youngest child in

10 really interesting things you may not know about the 1963 March on Washington

1) Dr. King was not the favored son of the march. In fact, many of the leaders didn’t want to invite him because he was too radical. His insistence upon discussions about poverty and opposition to the US war machine made him so many enemies that he was nearly ejected from the list of speakers. In other words, he was acting a little bit like Dr. Cornel West. 2) There was an estimated audience of between

3) The march is considered a primary catalyst for the passing the Civil Rights Act (1964) and the Voting Rights Act (1965).

4) Earlier efforts to have a march on Washington included the March on W a s h i n g t o n Movement of the 1940s, led by A. Philip Randolph, president of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, president of the Negro American Labor Council, and vice president of the AFL-CIO.

Marilyn Whitney says of her Daddy, “He had a lot of umph in him I guess.” To honor their father, Lexi, Marillyn, and Sandra Whitney wanted to get in touch with as many of their brother’s and sisters as they could. They put up poster’s throughout south Phoenix to inform as much of the scattered family as possible about the passing of their father and the location of the memorial service. Many of the brothers and sisters did not know each other so they contacted the local TV news stations, who ran a

FCC order to reduce cost of prison phone calls The Gullah Sentinel Volume XVII , Number 3 Page

Gullah Sentinel News Service

WASHINGTON - The Federal Communications Commission has voted to reduce calling rates for prisoners and their families. The vote comes more than a decade after Martha Wright, joined by inmates and their families, petitioned the FCC to regulate the price of calls that today can cost more than $15 for a 15-minute call. Wright struggled to afford the cost of calls to her grandson while he was incarcerated. The FCC’s new order would require phone companies to base rates on actual costs, and would cap rates at 25 cents per minute while the

FCC collects further data. The order would also prohibit companies from charging deaf and hard-of-hearing customers extra for the use of telecommunications relay services. The FCC also issued a Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to address intrastate calling rates, competition among prison phone providers, and quality of service, among other issues. Free Press President and CEO Craig Aaron made the following statement: “Martha Wright and so many others have waited a very long time for this moment. For too long, phone companies have preyed on the fam-

ilies of prisoners, charging exorbitant rates and fees that often forced people to choose between paying for phone calls to their loved ones and putting food on the table.” "We’re thrilled that the FCC has finally moved to reduce the cost of these calls, and we thank Acting Chairwoman Clyburn for bringing this to a vote and for her steadfast leadership on an issue the agency ignored for far too long. Commissioner Rosenworcel also deserves our thanks for her vote supporting this order.

The threat of the march led to the passage of Executive Order 8802 establishing the Committee on Fair Employment Practice and also banning discriminatory hiring in the defense industry. 5) John F. Kennedy had been regularly criticized for promising one thing and doing another in the area of civil rights. Dr. King had been a critic of the administration, describing Kennedy’s policies as racial “tokenism.” 6) In 1963, the black unemployment rate was not as bad as it is right now (10% vs. 12.6%) 7) The original march was going to be a two day protest, consisting of sitins and lobbying, along with a large rally. The

original march was going to focus on economic inequality, at least that was A. Philip Randolph’s plan. It was eventually expanded to “jobs and freedom.” 8) Malcolm X was not a fan of the march, dubbing it the “farce on Washington.” 9) The FBI investigated links between the march and the Communist party. Days before the march, they reached out to celebrity supporters, asking them to withdraw their support. One of the strongest attackers was the late Sen. Strom Thurmond. 10) Organizers planned the march out of an office in Harlem. Several organizers received bomb threats right before the march was to begin. One man called the FBI and threatened to “put a hole in King’s eyes.” The FBI did not follow up in the threat.

Pastor tells women that hair weaves are NOT allowed in his church NEWS

Gullah Sentinel News Service

NATION - Women love their hair, and Black women love their hair weaves. Billions are spent on hair weaves every year, and a lot of women rely on them as much as they rely on the holy spirit itself. So, a pastor got attention recently by making the unconventional decision to disallow hair weaves to be worn inside his church. Pastor A.J. Aamir spoke on AmericanPreacher.com about why he told his parishioners that weaves are simply unacceptable in the eyes of the Lord. The pastor at Resurrecting Faith believes that the devices present a false image of women. He also says that they are reflective of low selfesteem coming from women who are trying to be something that they are not. “Our black women are getting weaves trying to be something and

someone they are not. Be real with yourself is all I’m saying” said Pastor Aamir. The pastor says that women should focus more on developing their minds, not just focusing on their appearance. “Long hair don’t care. What kind of mess is that? I don’t want my members so focused

on what’s on their heads and not IN their heads” he told AmericaPreachers.com. “I lead a church where our members are struggling financially. I mean really struggling. “Yet, a 26 year old mother in my church has a $300 weave on her head. NO. I will not be quiet about this.” The pastor’s church is located in Waco, Texas. What do you think about this? Is the pastor right to tell women what they can and cannot wear in church?


Does a police officer's race matter?

The Gullah Sentinel Volume XVII, Number 3 Page

LIBERAL / CONSERVATIVE

Thursday, Aug 29 - Sep 11, 2013

Jeff Jacoby

Can you judge a police officer's abilities by the color of his skin? When Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis earlier this month promoted five officers to sergeant, the commotion it generated Jacoby had everything to do with the officers' race. All five happened to be White, even though the pool of 21 officers eligible for promotion on the basis of their Civil Service test scores had included nine nonWhite candidates. The commissioner was blasted by a minority officers' advocacy group, which accused him of making a "conscious effort" to keep minorities from moving up. Boston's mayoral hopefuls jumped on the issue. "How can we have a City of Boston that's 53 percent people of color," demanded City Councilor Charles Yancey, "and not have one person of color heading up any of the 11 police districts in the City of Boston?" Davis pleaded in vain that there is more to police leadership than color. "I'm not going to promote every single time based on race, which is what they want me to do," he said. "I'm going to pick the best people for the positions." Nevertheless, he quickly added two Black officers to the promotion list, and vigorously affirmed his commitment to a "diverse" police force. The racial makeup of Boston's police force has long been a source of stress and frustration. For years critics have argued that the Civil Service exams —multiple-choice tests that reward memorized book knowledge — can't measure many of the qualities that effective police supervisors need, such as a knack for leadership, good communication skills, integrity, and sound judgment. Davis isn't the first commissioner to complain about the tests' inadequacy; his predecessors were vexed by them too. White men account for fewer than half of the chiefs, superintendents, and deputy superintendents on his team. The arguments for a more holistic means of screening officers for promotion sound plausible. Yet I never see the subject raised other than in the context of "diversity." The deficiencies of the existing test become an issue only when there are complaints about too few racial minorities being promoted. Does that mean that there is something wrong with the test? Maybe. Or maybe what it means is that Boston's police department cannot readily escape the persistent racial gap in learning and test scores that has been so extensively documented in American life. The average Black high school graduate reads and writes at the level of the average white 8th-grader; Black students taking the SAT college entrance exam score (on average) 200 points below White students taking the same exam.close that gap. It has become an unchallenged truism that police departments must "look like" the communities they serve, especially in cities with large minority populations. Plainly there is great value in having police officers who can move easily in minority neighborhoods or interview crime victims in a language they're most comfortable with. When there are minority cops patrolling the beat in minority neighborhoods, residents are less likely to resent the police as alien occupiers — and perhaps more likely to come forward with information that can prevent or solve a crime. Yet it's one thing to say that a racially mixed police force can reduce public suspicion of law enforcement, or help in practical ways to make a city safer. It's something very different to suggest that racial diversity should be pursued for its own sake, and that there is something inherently foul about a promotion list that doesn't include a certain number of Blacks or Hispanics. If the Civil Service test needs improving, improve it. But let's not be seduced by the false assumption that, ideally, the demographics of a police department should match those of the population. On the contrary: Ideally, the demographics of a police department shouldn't matter. No one imagines that Boston's cops should mirror Boston's population in terms of religion or party registration. Boston needs to recruit and promote skilled, honest, and committed police officers; most residents would agree that it's irrelevant whether they happen to be Methodists or Mormons, Republicans or Democrats. Maybe it's still not possible to be quite so nonchalant when it comes to race. But shouldn't that be the goal? Fifty years after the March on Washington, shouldn't public officials be able to acknowledge that there is always a serious moral objection to treating skin color as a job qualification? Even if, for the moment, there is no easy way around it?

The profit of protest

Overruling myself, I am now doing what I said I would not; I am writing a column in which I mention two items: Skittles and Iced Tea. I cringed every time I heard those words during the pursuit of justice for Trayvon Martin and his family, and throughout the trial of George Zimmerman. They became synonymous with Trayvon himself, and were mentioned just as much as his name was mentioned. As far back as March 2012, demonstrations and protests were held, one of which took place in Liberty City, Florida, that featured protesters holding up bags of Skittles and cans of Arizona Tea. In case you have not yet figured out the connection by reading the title of this article, as Booker T. Washington said many years ago, “Beneath politics, beneath education, even beneath religion, lies economics.” And I would add, even beneath protest lies profit. Understanding that nothing happens in this capitalistic society until something is sold, when I read about the windfall

Sex Tapes and Butlers

Margaret Kimberley

Racist propaganda comes in many forms, and from many sources. Russell Simmons and Lee Daniels are well-paid Black purveyors of the anti-Black propaganda arts. Daniel’s turns history and truth on its head in The Butler, while Russell Simmons depicts Harriet Tubman as a whore who turns tricks for freedom. On August 14, 2013, Russell Simmons posted these words on twitter: “Funniest thing I’ve ever seen Harriet tubmans [sic] sex diary.” Those are words guaranteed to catch one’s attention, the way a bomb going off gets attention. Simmons wasn’t lying or joking either. His latest entertainment venture, All Def Digital, had in fact produced something he called The Harriet Tubman Sex Tape. For the worst and most despicable reasons possible, Mr. Simmons chose to commit a character assassination of Harriet Tubman, one of the greatest in the pantheon of Black American heroes. By extension he defamed not only Tubman, but all Black people and perpetrated the worst slanders used against Black women. One might conclude that Simmons is nothing more than clueless and ignorant of the history of this country and of his people. Yet his treachery shows something far worse than obvious misogyny, self-hatred and stupidity. This so-called parody existed because Simmons determined that the path to success must go straight through the heart of our heritage and bring down a woman whose actions were above reproach. Simmons claims that he wanted to show Tubman “turning the tables” on the slave master. The vulgar and stupid impresario, entrepreneur, mogul doesn’t even know why Harriet Tubman is so revered. In Simmons’ turgid imagination, the woman who John Brown referred to as

“General Tubman” becomes nothing more than a whore. For Harriet Tubman to have overcome these circumstances with her bravery and genius, only to be depicted as a woman who enjoys having sex with her slave holder is the worst thing that any black person might do to her memory. Black people should have had nothing worse than Russell Simmons to contend with, but he chose to do his dirty work in the same week that another awful depiction was unleashed by Hollywood. Lee Daniels’ The Butler is a train wreck of a film which leaves a bad taste for anyone even dimly aware of the basic facts of American history. The Butler is a fictionalized account of the life of Eugene Allen, a man who served as a White House butler from the Harry Truman through Ronald Reagan administrations. This story could be interesting on many levels but in the hands of the ham fisted and Black hating Daniels the Civil Rights Movement is in the end just a useful backdrop for absolving White people of any guilt. Daniels does know what makes for an engaging film and it is this skill that makes The Butler so insidious. He cleverly depicts how the lead character, named Cecil Gaines for the purposes of the movie, must escape from the cruelty of Jim Crow era South, where America’s apartheid took shape. It is true to this very day that Black people show two faces, or in the case of people like the Gaines character, only one face, not being allowed to be fully human when interacting with White people who have power over them. What might have made for an intriguing dynamic is turned into a hodge podge of phony hopefulness about how the “good negro” inspires white people to do the right thing. Every president in the movie confess-

Wrigley/Mars, although innocent and unattached to the tragedy received windfalls from it. trough. Quite honestly, Skittles and Arizona Iced Tea had absolutely nothing to do with George Zimmerman killing Trayvon Martin, and yet they have become “symbols” in the aftermath of his death. If young Martin had nothing in his hands that night, would it have made any difference? Absolutely not. Now some may say this is a trivial thing and maybe even question why I chose to write about it. Well, my intention is to get us to see, once and for all, the role Blacks play in the economics of this country – yes, even in the face of tragedy. I want us to understand how to keep the main thing the main thing in all that we do, especially when it comes to economic empowerment. If this article does not at least cause you to think about our collective actions and the futility thereof in many cases, if it does not make you know that many times our dollars just don’t make good sense, then I have failed to do my job. I will keep trying though; you can count on it.

es his sins to the magical Cecil and then tries his best to help the Negro. In fact, however much or little any of these presidents did was Kimberley dependent upon the intensity of the struggle among the masses of people and not by their liking of any domestic worker. The movie does tell some historic truth but with an underlying message that political action is acceptable only within very narrow parameters. The son in the film goes on a journey from the lunch counter sit-ins to the Freedom Rides to the Black Panthers. Daniels should have just left the Panthers alone instead of depicting them as disrespectful young people who never remove their Black berets and give offense at the dinner table. Lee Daniels and Russell Simmons are also in high places. They get the deals to create images of Black life because they can be replied upon to do the right thing by White people. After being properly scolded for the sex tape horror, Simmons removed the sex tape from his site and now says he has plans to produce biographies of Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass. He probably has no real interest in doing this but for the sake of argument he must be treated as if he does. He can’t be trusted with our image ever again and must never be allowed to live down this shameful episode. Daniels will probably get more movie deals and more opportunities to create outwardly uplifting fare that is in reality anything but. He is equally untrustworthy but more dangerous. He is after all the man who gave us Precious.

Late tennis star Althea Gibson is honored with a Black Heritage Stamp

WASHINGTON - When we think of women’s tennis, two names immediately come to mind: Venus and Serena. Long before Venus and Serena Williams dominated the tennis world with their beaded hair, grace and power, Althea Gibson was attacking the nets for inclusion as well as championships. The Althea Gibson commemorative stamp went on sale August 23 as part of the United States Postal Service’s Black Heritage Series. The release of the stamp also comes on the anniversary of Gibson’s debut at the U.S. Open in 1950 and recognizes Althea Gibson as the first African-American, male or female, to win a Grand Slam. Gibson broke down racial barriers in tennis, similar to Jackie Robinson in baseball, at a time when Black players, no matter how many tournaments they won, were refused the opportunity to compete in prestigious events including Grand Slams.

O.J. Simpson granted parole in robbery case NEWS

Gullah Sentinel News Service

NEVADA - O.J. Simpson has been granted parole on some of the charges stemming from his 2008 robbery and kidnapping conviction, but that doesn’t mean he will be getting out of jail any time soon. The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners released an order granting O.J. Simpson parole on some of the charges relating to Simpson’s involvement in a robbery of memorabilia dealers. Simpson was only paroled on some of the charges, not all, which means he could still face several more years in jail. Since Simpson was ordered to serve his sentences consecutively, he will likely face another 4 years in jail before he will be allowed to leave Lovelock Correctional Center. Simpson pleaded before the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners for leniency and said he regrets his actions. “I

just wish I never went to that room,” said 66-yearold Simpson when he went before the board. In the board’s statement, they described Simpson as a model prisoner with no prior convictions. They also noted Simpson’s “positive institutional record” as being a part of their deliberations. Simpson was originally sentenced to nine to 33 years for the 2007 stick up of two memorabilia dealers, Alfred Beardsley and Bruce Fromong. Simpson is also seeking a new trial on the original charges and a judge is still mulling over whether to grant his request. The parole
