Oxnard Parks Receive Grant MONEY HAS A SPENDING DEADLINE

By Chris Frost Special to the Tri County Sentry OXNARD—The Oxnard Parks Recreation and Community Services and Development Commission heard the latest about the Park Grant Projects and how it will benefit the city during the June 27, meeting.

T

HERE is an April 30 spending deadline for the California Housing and Community Development Park Grant. All the money has to be spent, for Durley, Del Sol, Thompson, Colonia, and Carty Park. Paul Jordan made the presentation for the parks division and said there are a lot of park projects and renovation in plan check and some are approved. “We have the Del Sol Park and the Community Center Park East restroom in progress,” he said. “We finally located the sewer lines out there, so we’re proceeding.” City Engineer Robert Hearne spoke on behalf of the parks department and said the city is in design on most of the parks. Jordan said his company works directly for public service and that department has engaged his company for the last six months to

renovate and upgrade nine parks in the city. “They are in various stages of design, plan check and review,” he said. “At Durley Park, we completed the renovation plans for

the new play area, and it’s in plan check.” Hearne said that anytime you do a renovation or remodel on a park the building department and code requires that you look at part of travel requirements, including restrooms and drinking fountains. “We had our architect review the plans we

Emergency Repair Money Allocated to Oxnard Wastewater Treatment Plant

OXNARD—The Governor's office has approved the State of California budget which includes the allocation of $9.5 million toward the City of Oxnard’s aging Wastewater Treatment Plant. This was a year-long, joint effort across the State Legislature to help the City of Oxnard fund emergency repairs to its plant. Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin led the efforts to allocate the funding for this urgent need, supported by Sen. Hannah Beth Jackson, Assemblymember Monique Limon and Oxnard city staff members. “This is fantastic news,” said Oxnard Mayor Tim Flynn. “The city has been actively looking for partnerships and cost-effective ways to lower repair costs and lessen the burden on ratepayers. These funds will greatly assist

OXNARD—The Oxnard Parks Recreation and Community Services Commission is going to take a road trip in the future, as the group agreed to visit the recreation facilities in the city during its June 27, meeting. The visits were suggested by Commissioner Aurelio Ocampo who wanted to see what condition the facilities are in and what the city has and doesn’t have. Ocampo said some of the facilities he never visited, and the commission should have a good sense of what’s available in the city to help them make better decisions in the future. Community Services Manager Terrel Harrison said there are many ways to accomplish this moving forward. “I made a list of some recreational services sites that would be great for the commission to see,” he said. “One way is to take you all out together. To take you all together that would be a special meeting, and we would have to allow the public and time it out.” Harrison said the tour would include the Wilson Senior Center, the South Oxnard Center including the South Oxnard Youth Center which is also the rental and banquet sites. “We also have the El Rio Gymnasium, the Powell Gymnasium, and the Powell site,” he said. “We have the City Corps House; we have La Colonia boxing and basketball gyms and the La Colonia Youth Center.” Harrison also included Beck Park because it has recreational facilities. He said they could visit the locations in a few different ways. “We would offer rides for people to go n Commission, see page 3

Protesters Flood California Cities to Fight Trump Immigration Policy By Ellen Knickmeyer WASHINGTON—They wore white. They shook their fists in the air. They carried signs reading: “No more children in cages,” and “What's next? Concentration Camps?”

I

N major cities and tiny towns, hundreds of thousands of marchers gathered Saturday across America, moved by accounts of children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border, in the latest act of mass resistance against President Donald Trump's immigration policies. Protesters flooded more than 700 marches, from immigrantfriendly cities like New York and Los Angeles to conservative Appalachia and Wyoming. They gathered on the front lawn of a Border Patrol station in McAllen, Texas, near a detention center where migrant children were being held in cages, and on a street corner near Trump's golf resort at Bedminster, New Jersey, where the president is spending the weekend. Trump has backed away from family separations amid bipartisan and international uproar. His “zero tolerance policy” led officials to take more than 2,000 children from their parents as they tried to enter the country illegally, most of them fleeing violence, persecution or economic collapse in their home countries. Those marching Saturday demanded the government quickly reunite the families that were already divided. A Brazilian mother separated from her 10-year-old son more than a month ago approached the microphone at the Boston rally. “We came to the United States seeking help, and we never imagined that this could happen. So I beg everyone, please release these children, give my son back to me,” she said through an interpreter, weeping. “Please fight and continue fighting, because we will win,” she said. The crowd erupted. In Washington, D.C., an

Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of the musical “Hamilton,” sang a lullaby dedicated to parents unable to sing to their children. Singer-songwriter Alicia Keys read a letter written by a woman whose child had been taken away from her at the border. “It's upsetting. Families being

separated, children in cages,” said Emilia Ramos, a cleaner in the district, fighting tears at the rally. “Seeing everyone together for this cause, it's emotional.” Around her, thousands waved signs: “I care,” some read, referencing a jacket that first lady Melania Trump wore when traveling to visit child migrants. The back of her jacket said, “I really don't care, do U?” and it became a rallying cry for protesters Saturday. “I care!! Do you?” read Joan Culwell's T-shirt as she joined a rally in Denver. “We care!” marchers shouted outside Dallas City Hall. Organizer Michelle Wentz says opposition to the Trump administration's “barbaric and inhumane” policy has seemed to transcend political lines. “This is the issue crossing the line for a lot of people,” said Robin Jackson, 51, of Los Angeles, who protested with thousands carrying flags, signs and babies.

Program Launched to Help Ventura County Businesses Save Energy VENTURA—The Ventura County Regional Energy Alliance, in partnership with the Community Environmental Council, are launching their newest pilot program, kWh Countdown, funded by the California Energy Commission. kWh Countdown offers two services for businesses located in the cities of Thousand Oaks, Ventura, and Moorpark: 1) free energy benchmarking to all business that enroll; and 2) a limited number of comprehensive energy audits to businesses that demonstrate a willingness to invest in energy efficiency projects. “kWh Countdown is designed to help businesses save money on utility bills and invest in energy efficiency projects with confidence,” said Sue Hughes, VCREA’s Executive Director. “Business owners often

bypass cost-saving energy efficiency projects because of uncertain payback periods or lack of technical expertise. kWh Countdown aims to reduce the uncertainty surrounding energy efficiency projects by clearly explaining the benefits of energy efficiency.” Selected companies will receive free American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers level II energy audits, valued at over $5,000 each. These energy audits provide businesses with a detailed analysis of potential energy efficiency projects, including payback periods, funding sources, and packages of projects that best align with the individual company’s goals and objectives. Due to the cost of providing such a high-level assessment, a limited number of these audits will be conducted. Auditing services will be completed by TRC,

Inc. a Southern California-based energy company that was selected through a competitive Request for Proposal process. Companies that are not selected to receive free high-level energy audits will still receive a benchmarking analysis. Benchmarking uses an online platform called ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager® to compare a building’s energy usage to that of similar buildings. This evaluation provides businesses insight to their energy usage and helps identify opportunities for energy conservation. Additionally, commercial buildings over 50,000 square feet with no residential accounts are mandated to be benchmarked by Assembly Bill 802. kWh Countdown helps buildings owners meet this benchmarking requirement.

Sweeping Data Privacy Bill Approved in California By Sophia Bollag SACRAMENTO—California will soon have what experts call the nation's most far-reaching law to give consumers more control over their personal data under a bill the governor last week.

T

HE law will compel companies to tell customers upon request what personal data they've collected, why it was collected and what categories of third parties have received it. The new law will take effect Jan. 1, 2020, and lawmakers say they will likely make alterations to improve the policy before then. Consumers will also be able to ask companies to delete their information and refrain from selling it. It's similar to data privacy regulation in the European Union, which also aims to give consumers control over use of their data. The California bill signed by Gov. Jerry Brown will apply only to California consumers. However, internet users in other states will likely see changes, said Cynthia Larose, a cybersecurity expert at the law firm Mintz Levin. “It's going to be impractical for companies to maintain two separate sets of privacy protections—one for California and one for everyone else,” she said. The move by California came after large breaches in recent years at companies including Target and Equifax. Facebook also has faced intense scrutiny amid revelations that Republican-linked consulting firm Cambridge Analytica collected data from millions of Facebook users without their knowledge. The bill by Assemblyman Ed Chau, an Arcadia Democrat, gives companies the ability to offer discounts to customers who allow

Area Resident Shot on Solar Drive

Victim Is 9th Homicide of the Year in Oxnard OXNARD—On July 1, 2018 at about 3:30 A.M., Oxnard Police Officers responded to the 1900 block Solar Drive, Oxnard regarding a shooting victim. When officers and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) arrived at the scene, they attempted to render aid to the victim. Unfortunately, the victim was pronounced deceased at the scene. This is the 9th homicide of the year for the City of Oxnard. Detectives are requesting anyone who might have witnessed the incident to contact Detective Ken Tougas (805) 200-5669. You can also provide valuable information and remain anonymous by calling the Violent Crimes Hotline at (805) 982-7070 or Ventura County Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.

Detectives are also encouraging anyone who video recorded or photographed all or part of the incident to upload your media directly to detectives via the following link: https:// oxnardpd.evidence.com/axon/ citizen/public/1950solardr.

Consumers will also be able to ask companies to delete their information and refrain from selling it. their data to be sold and charge those who opt out a reasonable amount based on how much the company makes selling the information. It also bars companies from selling data from children younger than 16 without consent. “We in California are taking a leadership position with this bill,” said Sen. Bob Hertzberg, a Van Nuys Democrat who co-authored the bill. “I think this will serve as an inspiration across the country.”

Brown signed the measure just hours after lawmakers passed it with no dissenting votes in a last-minute scramble to convince San Francisco real estate developer Alastair Mactaggart to remove a similar initiative from consideration for the November ballot ahead of a Thursday deadline. Mactaggart spent $3 million on the related initiative but withdrew it shortly after the law was signed. Voter-enacted initiatives are much harder to alter than laws passed through the legislative process. Given the significance and complexity of the issue, supporters and even many opponents said they wanted legislators to pass the bill instead of allowing the initiative to move forward so lawmakers can more easily change it in the future. Lawmakers suggested the bill will need amendments. Republican Assemblyman Jay Obernolte of Hesperia said he thinks the parts of the bill allowing people to sue companies over data breaches are

too broad. Although the bill is aimed at regulating internet and tech companies, some opponents say it could have unintended consequences on other industries. A lobbyist for the newspaper industry, for example, said he worried the bill could harm news reporting by allowing subjects of negative investigative stories to prevent publication. Lawmakers said that's not the bill's intent. TechNet, a technology lobbying group, urged lawmakers to improve the law before it takes effect “so it provides meaningful privacy protections for Californians while also allowing all the benefits and opportunities consumers expect from U.S. technology to continue.” “Policymakers around the country looking at what California has done on this issue should understand that the California Legislature's work is far from finished and that this law remains a work in progress,” the group said in a statement.

Maxine Waters Cancels Weekend Events After Threats

LOS ANGELES—Residents in Congresswoman Maxine Waters' South Los Angeles district will have a chance to sound off on the recent controversy surrounding the escalating war of words between the Democratic lawmaker and the Trump administration Saturday in a townhall program that will be broadcast on the radio and live-streamed online. Waters canceled two weekend events in Texas and Alabama after receiving death threats, her office told CNN. "As the president has continued to lie and falsely claim that I encouraged people to assault his supporters, while also offering a veiled threat that I should ‘be careful,' even more individuals are leaving (threatening) messages and sending hostile mail to my office," she said in the statement released last Thursday. "There was one very serious death threat made against me on Monday from an individual in Texas which is why my planned speaking engagements in Texas and Alabama were canceled this weekend," she continued. "This is just one in several very serious threats the United States Capitol Police are investigating in which individuals threatened to shoot, lynch, or cause me serious bodily harm." Last weekend, the Los Angeles Democrat urged people opposed to the administration's policies to confront cabinet members. At a rally at the Westwood Federal Building, she alluded to the heckling of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who was dining at a Mexican restaurant in Washington, D.C. when she was confronted by protesters over family separations at the border, and White House press secretary Sarah

Protest is the democratic way, as long as it is peaceful. Maxine Waters Huckabee Sanders being asked to leave a Lexington, Virginia, restaurant by its owner because of her work defending Trump and his policies. "Let's make sure we show up wherever we have to show up," she said in remarks posted on YouTube. "And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere. "We've got to get the children connected to their parents," the congresswoman said then. "Mr. President, we will see you every day, every hour of the day, everywhere that we are to let you know you cannot get away with this."

Waters appeared on a cable network later that day to reiterate her remarks, and exclaimed "no sympathy" for members of the Trump administration. The president then sent a tweet that said: "Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democrat Party. She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!" Waters later said peaceful demonstrations are a cornerstone of democracy and she supports the right to protest. "I have nothing to do with the way people decide to protest," she said. "Protest is the democratic way, as long as it is peaceful." Waters added: "I don't cry about protests. People protest me all the time, people come to my district office all the time.

on the tour with you. Or we would say we’re going to be at this site from this time till this time.” There are problems with the plan, Harrison said, because if something catches a commissioner’s eye and it takes him longer to explain the observation, it will throw them off-balance. “We are limited to staying at a certain site for a certain time,” he said. “The other part is we’re offering rides so that people can come along with you and if more people come than we have rides for, that could be a challenge. It has been done both of those ways before.” He suggested another method, taking the commissioner’s out in groups of two or three, depending on the commissioner’s preference, and Harrison would take them to the sites at their convenience. “Then I would be able to spend as much time in the area as the group would want me to explaining things,” he said. “The challenge with that is coordinating your schedules. The advantage is that it doesn’t have to be a special meeting.” Commissioner Aurelio Ocampo asked if they can announce on social media where they would be when they make their visit. “If we take an extra five or 10 minutes at that location, then we announce it and say this is where we are going to go next,” he said. “Can that be considered announcing it to the public?” Harrison said he would have to check if it would be allowed. “From my knowledge, I don’t think so,” he said. “It’s because we’re not announcing with enough time. All we’re saying is that we’re moving around, but it doesn’t give the public enough notice of where we’re going to be.” He said that’s his best guess. “I would have to double back and check,” he said. A special meeting requires 24-hours’ notice, and a regular meeting requires 72 hours’ notice. Vice Chairwoman Angela Whitecomb said the group should go out together with the scheduled agenda and if the group has a particular interest, they can revisit the location at a later time. “As an individual or as a pair then come back with a report,” she said. “That way, we can get a great overview of everything, that way we’re not wasting anybody’s time.” Harrison said a summer visit is a great idea. “This gives the commission an opportunity not just to see the facility, not just see some of the needs of the area, but encounter some of the staff so they can know the story,” he said. “By the end of next week at Southwinds we are going to feeding 1,000 kids a day.” He wants the commission to see the partnership it has with the Port Hueneme School District. “Also, some of the needs of the residents and what they do for recreation at some of these facilities,” he said. “It’s not just seeing and knowing. It’s seeing it in action and knowing the stories.” Chairmen Roger Poirier asked Ocampo to meet with Harrison and work out the details.

OPED

Pressed on Every Side… But Not Defeated

London Breed Overcomes Adversity to Become San Francisco’s First Black Female Mayor By Jeffrey L. Boney Politics can be a dirty game. It can oftentimes bring out the worst in people. It isn’t for the faint of heart. On the flip side, however, politics gives us an opportunity to witness individuals rise above the negative elements usually associated with politics, as well as the other challenges they have endured to help them make their mark in history. Such a feat was witnessed on June 13, as San Francisco Board of Supervisors President London Breed, 43, overcame tremendous adversity and challenges to become the first African American woman to become mayor of San Francisco. The historic win by Breed also makes her only the second woman in San Francisco’s history to become mayor and the only female mayor in any of the top 15 most populous cities in the United States. This is a significant victory for African American female candidates. It also speaks to the power of establishing a broad coalition of voters, including targeting a large percentage of Black voters as a base. While San Francisco has a population of roughly 870,000, it also has one of the smallest percentages of Blacks living there among all of the major U.S. cities—less than 6 percent. Over 50 percent of the voting electorate came out to vote in this historic election, with a large percentage of Black voters choosing Breed as their candidate for mayor. As a result of her historic win, Breed will now serve out the remainder of the term of Mayor Ed Lee, whose sudden death as a result of a heart attack in December created the need for the June 5th special election. Breed will serve until to 2020, and will undoubtedly run again for a full four-year term. After the general election, which was held on June 6, Breed found herself with a significant first-choice ballot lead over her closest opponents. She led former state Senator Mark Leno, who is White, by nearly 13 points and her colleague on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, Jane Kim, who is Asian, by over 12 points. Because San Francisco does not use a traditional voting system, but rather a unique ranked-choice voting

system, Breed and her supporters had to wait eight days before finding out the historic results. To get a clearer understanding of what Breed went through to become mayor of San Francisco, you have to better understand the ranked-choice voting system. Basically, when San Francisco voters cast their ballot they get to rank their top three choices for mayor. After all the first-choice votes are tallied, whoever comes in last place gets eliminated and that candidate’s supporters get to have their votes transferred to their second choice. Whoever ends up with the majority of votes during this process wins. In Breed’s case, although she would have won easily if this were a traditional voting system, she found herself losing her sizeable lead after election day and having Mark Leno take the lead overnight after the ranked-choice voting results started come in. Things were extremely close, but each day after the election, Breed continued to cut into Leno’s lead. Breed eventually overtook Leno and continued to widen her lead over him to the point he had no other choice but to concede, which he did on June 13. This was by far the closest and most competitive race the city of San Francisco has had for mayor since 1995. It was then that Willie Brown, the first African American mayor of the city, won his runoff election after coming out of the general election with only roughly 2,000 votes. San Francisco first adopted a rankedchoice voting system in 2002 and has used it since 2004 to elect the mayor, city attorney, Board of Supervisors and five additional citywide offices. To date, a little over 10 cities across the U.S. actually use a ranked-choice voting system. The state of Maine adopted the system in 2016 and first used it in June 2018 for all state and federal primary elections. The journey to the mayor’s office was not an easy one for Breed, especially after enduring months of political maneuvering by her colleagues on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and other non-Black opponents of hers— many who were fellow Democrats. Many people believed the tactics that were used against Breed were raciallymotivated and a calculated effort to keep her from her eventual destiny.

Both Leno and Kim were accused of teaming up against Breed, and using questionable tactics to take advantage of San Francisco’s political system of ranked-choice voting in order to keep her out of the mayor’s seat. Both of them held a joint press conference where they strongly encouraged all of their supporters to choose each other as their second choice on the ballot. They also filmed a commercial ad together to encourage their supporters to vote for each other, while shunning the Black female candidate. According to exit polls, more than three out of four Kim voters resonated with their calculated message and chose to select Leno as the second choice on their ballot over Breed. This was not the only questionable move made by Kim and others. After Mayor Lee’s death in December, Breed became acting mayor, but her colleagues on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors felt that allowing her to keep that role would have given her an unfair advantage of being labeled the incumbent once the next mayoral election rolled around. In a controversial move, Breed’s colleagues on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, including Kim, voted to strip Breed of her duties as interim mayor back in January. Despite public outcry, the Board of Supervisors decided to install Mark Farrell, a White male, as the interim mayor. Keep in mind that all of the people involved in this decision to remove a fellow Democrat from that role were Democrats themselves— Leno, Kim, and Farrell. The only difference between Breed and the other Democrats involved is that she is a Black woman. Also keep in mind that it was Kim, who recently sought to become mayor, who was one of the primary individuals leading that charge against Breed. Another important fact as to why this move was controversial is that a decision to retain Breed in her role as interim mayor after the untimely death of a mayor was not an unprecedented one. Current California Senator Dianne Feinstein was appointed to become mayor in 1978 after Mayor George Moscone was assassinated. This lack of overall support of Black candidates, along with the questionable tactics displayed by fellow Democrats,

as what Breed experienced, stands out as a longstanding and disturbing trend. Breed has become the latest proof, however, that this exciting new trend of Black women running for office, locally and nationally, serves as a good indicator that a strong Black turnout could signal even greater outcomes for Black women candidates during November’s midterm elections. The National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA), a trade group that represents over 200 Black-owned media companies across the U.S., recognizes the need to increase Black voter turnout and is continuing its steady push encouraging 5 million new, Black voters to register before the midterm elections, with the hopes of ensuring more candidates like Breed cross the finish line victoriously. Amelia Ashley-Ward, who serves as NNPA Foundation Chair and publisher and owner of the San Francisco SunReporter, believes that Black voter turnout was a major factor in helping get Breed elected. “The Black community has always been enthusiastic about London Breed’s candidacy for some time,” said AshleyWard. “London was ready and she was qualified, but the way her colleagues on the Board of Supervisors bullied her and chose to push her out of her role as interim mayor truly energized the Black community to get behind her.” Ashley-Ward states that the Black Press, especially her local newspaper, played a crucial role in helping Breed win and effectively get her message out. “She was on our front page every week for three months,” said AshleyWard. “We ran editorials, educated the entire community about the ranked-choice voting system, shared her platform and encouraged people to become more familiar with who London Breed really was. As a result, more Black people got registered to vote, hosted fundraisers, held rallies and volunteered for her campaign. The Black Press and the Black community did everything possible to make sure London was elected and now she is.” Breed recently acknowledged that she is “appreciative of the support of the Black Press, as well as the relationship with the Black Press both locally and nationally.” Breed came from humble beginnings.

Being raised by her grandmother, Comelia Brown, in the projects of San Francisco, Breed never forgot where she came from. Her grandmother has a lot to do with it. Breed’s grandmother died in 2016 after a long struggle with dementia, but her grandmother’s vision and tenacity to focus on overcoming challenges still sticks with her—as evidenced by this recent quest to become the mayor of San Francisco. Breed’s grandmother was a housekeeper and taught her to strive to be better and to pursue her education. Breed’s brother went to prison and her younger sister died of a drug overdose in 2006, but that did not stop her from doing exactly what her grandmother encouraged her to do. Breed went on to earn a bachelor’s degree from the University of California at Davis and then a master’s in public administration from the University of San Francisco. She got her first taste of politics in the mid-1990s, serving as an intern for former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown. Breed was responsible for answering the mail and writing proclamations, but she had a hunger for more. For more than a decade, Breed served as Executive Director of the African American Art & Culture Complex, with an emphasis on providing critical programs for at-risk youth and senior citizens. In 2012, Breed decided she wanted to get more involved politically, so she challenged the incumbent member of the Board of Supervisors in her district and won. She had served in that role since being elected and has been elected by her colleagues as president since 2015. Now, Breed will be sworn in as the 45th mayor of San Francisco on July 11. The road she has traveled can be best summed up by the scripture in the Bible from the book of 2 Corinthians 4:8 that reads, “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair.” London Breed has shown the world that in spite of tremendous adversity and obstacles, you too can overcome.

REVOLUTIONARY SLAVEHOLDERS By Oscar H Blayton Each year, many Americans celebrate the 4th of July. On that day in 1776, it is said that “The Land of the Free” was born. But the true historical significance of Independence Day has been smothered in hot dogs, barbecue ribs and potato salad. And fireworks distract us from contemplating the economic forces that served as midwife to the birth of this nation. Four hundred years ago, Europeans invaded the Atlantic coast of North America and fought each other and the indigenous peoples for control of the land. By 1763, the British had made deals or driven everyone else out so that they controlled the entire coast. This included Canada and Florida, which the British obtained by treaty from France and Spain, respectively, at the end of the Seven Years’ War – a global conflict waged by the colonial powers of Europe for control of the rest of the world. Nine years after Britain gained control of the entire Atlantic seaboard, its colonists in North America were rocked by the news of a decision in the British high court that sounded the death knell for chattel slavery in the British

Empire. This decision was the result of a case known as Somerset v. Stewart. James Somerset was a West African held in slavery by a Norfolk, Va., merchant and customs officer, Charles Stewart. Stewart had taken Somerset with him when he sailed to England on business in 1769. Somerset escaped in 1771 while in England, but Stewart recaptured him and had him imprisoned on a ship due to sail for Jamaica. Somerset had been baptized while in England and his godparents helped him sue for his release. The Lord Chief Justice of the high court ruled in 1772 that slavery was contrary to Common Law and therefore illegal in England. Somerset was freed, and the news spread quickly to America. By early 1773, enslaved African Americans began to petition for their release in courts in the colonies, hoping to repeat Somerset’s success. The slaveholding British colonists were alarmed at these developments and believed correctly that the British Empire was on the path to ending chattel slavery. By taking their “revolutionary” stance, the

colonists hoped to free themselves and their slave-based economy from the inevitable arrival of abolition in the Empire. Every red, white and blue

American knows the narrative of how the freedom loving Sons of Liberty threw off Britain’s yoke of oppression. Some narratives even recount faithful slaves cheering them on. PBS and others have reported

that 5,000 African Americans served in the Continental Army. But many thousands more ran away to fight for their own freedom with the British. The Revolutionary War did not end until two years after the Battle of Yorktown in 1781. As British troops were evacuating New York City in 1783, they took with them, from that port alone, 3,000 former slaves who had supported the crown. The names of these African Americans were documented in the “Book of Negroes” as they boarded the ships bound for Nova Scotia and the British West Indies. An accurate record of these former slaves was kept because of a dispute between George Washington and Sir Guy Carleton, the British commander in charge of the evacuation of New York. Southern colonials had insisted that the treaty ending the war include a provision for the return of escaped African Americans to their slaveholders. Carleton refused to comply with that provision and was backed up by Lord Frederick North, the British Secretary of State who wrote to him that transporting

the runaways from the land of their oppression was “certainly an act of justice due to them from us…” On the other hand, Washington and other slaveholders believed they had been robbed of what was rightfully theirs. After his first meeting with Carleton, Washington complained in a letter to the governor of Virginia: “[T]he slaves who have absconded from their masters will never be restored to them.” So, while you are enjoying your grilled burgers and fireworks on July 4th, take a moment to consider the facts of how and why this nation came to be. Maintaining slavery, as an economic institution, was the major driving force for the desire for Independence from England – at least for the Southern states. And it is fair to say that the Stars and Stripes were stitched together in large part by the sting of the lash upon black backs. It is important to accurately recall and understand these facts in our history if we hope to make meaningful progress towards a better future. Oscar H.

OPED hatred. It’s so easy to kidnap children, indeed, to commit murder (usually called war) when you first dehumanize the designated enemy. Here, for instance, are the words of Leigh Valentine, speaking on a program called “Faith & Freedom”: “Rape after rape after rape. Children below 10 years old engaging in sexual activity. All kinds of sin and disgrace and darkness; the pit of the pits. So we’re not getting the top-of-the-line echelon people coming over this border, we’re getting criminals. I mean, total criminals that are so debased and their minds are just gone. They’re unclean, they’re murderers, they’re treacherous, they’re Godhaters.” What’s unnerving is that this is not just a marginal rant. I fear those who absorb such words control the levers of American power. These are the words that justified slavery and the genocide of Native Americans. They justified “Indian schools”—the boarding schools that native children were forced to attend, which ripped them from their families and their culture. A nd words to that effect have justified every war we’ve waged (even the “good ones” . . . World War II, the Civil War). You can’t don a uniform— whether Army fatigues or an ICE outfit—without dehumanizing the enemy of the moment. Back to the border, then, and the words of Elizabeth Warren: “We are people who believe in the worth of every human being.”

If this were true, what would it mean? At the very least, it would mean uprooting a lot of simplistic assumptions of what a nation is, and how, as a nation, we connect with the rest of the world. It would mean asking ourselves, for instance, why we “protect”

acknowledge our failings in this regard over the last two centuries, and begin groping for fundamental change. This is a foundational question. Perhaps it begins with a simple (and extremely complex) commitment: From now on, we dehumanize no one. What if all national policy were embedded in such a value? As we stood at our border, we would do so with awareness that the planet’s social order is evolving and humanity is uniting. We would understand that change begins here, with us, and the right to life doesn’t stop at this invisible line. Masha Gessen, writing recently in The New Yorker, points out that the Trump administration is defending its border policies by citing both the law and the Bible, and alleging that the Democrats want—oh, the horror!—open borders. “Sadly,” she writes, “this is not true: no voice audible in the American political mainstream is making the argument for open borders… “The existence of borders, and the need and right to police them, are among the unquestioned assumptions in the conversation.” Now is the time to challenge this stagnant, cruel assumption. Now is the time to stand at our border with something other than hatred and fear. Now is the time to declare to the world that no human being is illegal.

We are people who believe in the worth of every human being. Sen Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)

By Robert C. Koehler

O

scar Robertson Wonders: 'Where Are the White Athletes?' “We are people who believe in the worth of every human being,” Elizabeth Warren said the other day, and I wondered for a moment what life would be like if that were true. The more crucial question, however, is: How can we make it true? Warren had just returned from McAllen, Texas, where she visited an “immigration processing center”—a place where desperate human beings are stirred into the border bureaucracy and separated into categories—immigrants, refugees, criminals—and

where children, including babies, are torn from their parents’ arms, possibly forever. This is “the law” at work here, and as we all know, “the law” is often the voice of racism and smug superiority, a tool of dominance and exploitation in the name of public order. This is American history: founded on the belief that some men are created equal and other men are less than human. And women clean house, have babies, do what they’re told. “There are children by themselves. I saw a six-monthold baby. Little girls, little boys,” Warren said. “Family units are together if it’s a very small child, but little girls who

are 12-years-old are taken away from their families and held separately. And they’re all on concrete floors in cages. There’s just no other way to describe it. They’re big, chainlink cages on cold concrete floors.” This is not what America stands for, she said. But except for a thin, vital strain of humanity and compassion— the abolitionists, the suffragettes, the civil rights movement—this is what America stands for. It usually does so with such quiet certainty no one even notices, except, of course, those on the wrong side of the “us vs. them” divide: the helpless ones who bear the brunt of our patriotic

our (Southern) border with such obsessive cruelty—and beginning to face the armed racism we have perpetrated for so long on the countries and people beyond that border. As Richard Eskow points out: “One question remains: Why did these children’s families leave home in the first place? Again, the answers lie, in large part, with U.S. policy. The United States government has intervened in the internal politics of Central American countries like Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador for more than a century. It has trained Latin American military officers in techniques that include illegal techniques of torture and interrogation, often at the U.S. Army’s School of the Americas… “Many of today’s immigrants seeking refuge from poverty, persecution, and violence aren’t just fleeing to (the) United States. In a real sense, they are also fleeing from it—or, more accurately, from the results of its actions in their home countries.” If we begin to value the worth of every human being, the first thing we must do is

It’s Time for Blacks to Pull the Trigger on Politics By Jeffrey L. Boney How often do we hear messages about the amount of money Black people spend every year as consumers? In a recent report by Nielsen titled, “Black Dollars Matter: The Sales Impact of Black Consumers,” the message was once again highlighted: While African Americans make up just 14 percent of the population, they are responsible for some $1.2 trillion in purchases annually. It is no secret that a significant amount of money flows through the hands of Black people annually, but what does that mean if Black people aren’t using their collective financial strength to change their overall situation in this country, or better yet, control their own destiny? According to a recent report by the Center for American Progress titled “Systematic Inequality: How America’s Structural Racism Helped Create the Black-White Wealth Gap,” White families in America. African Americans have about a tenth of The report also stated that improved access the wealth of White Americans. The report to higher education alone, while important, found that in 2016, the median wealth for will not be enough to create equal opportunity Blacks was $17,600, compared to the median in terms of wealth-building for all, but that wealth of Whites being $171,000. The report broad and persistent policy attention to wealth also found that even when Black people take creation can address this glaring inequity progressive steps such as pursuing higher between Blacks and Whites in this country. education, purchasing a home, or getting a The importance of Black people using good job or a better job, they are still falling their collective financial strength to way behind their White counterparts.

winner Al Pacino. In that scene, Vincent (Garcia), who is unfamiliar with politics, has a powerful exchange with an Italian mafia kingpin name Don Lucchesi, played by Italian actor Enzo Robutti, about politics and money. The exchange goes: Vincent Mancini: Don Lucchesi, you are a man of finance and politics. These things I don't understand. Don Lucchesi: You understand guns? Vincent Mancini: Yes. Don Lucchesi: Finance is a gun. Politics is knowing when to pull the trigger. In 2018, Black people have their hands on the money, but need to start using their resources to pull the trigger politically, by funding qualified political candidates, financing voter registration initiatives, creating political action committees, hosting political forums, challenging incumbents who don’t have their best interests at heart, and even running for political office themselves. The National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA), a trade group that represents over 200 Black-owned media companies across the U.S., has a focus, in 2018, to register 5 million new, Black voters

before the midterm elections with the hopes of ensuring that candidates are elected in November and beyond who want to introduce legislation that would effectively close the wealth gap between Blacks and Whites and improve the quality of life for Blacks overall. There is much work to be done, but in order to see that type of change take place, Black people must get engaged in the political process, because everything that has positively and/or negatively impacted them in this country has been as a result of politics and legislation. All one has to do is review American history to see how Black people have consistently been systematically oppressed, and have been on the wrong side of legislative decisions since this country’s inception. Going as far back as the Constitution of the United States, which includes the “ThreeFifths Compromise,” one is able to see how Black people have been negatively impacted by laws that they did not originate and that have disenfranchised them. Also, if you look at federal, state and local legislation such as the Emancipation Proclamation; the Thirteenth Amendment; the Dred Scott Decision; the Brown v. Board of Education; Plessy v. Ferguson; the Jim Crow laws; lynching; sharecropping; literacy tests, poll taxes and other segregationist policies; Civil Rights Act of 1964; Voting Rights Act of 1965; the ‘War on Drugs’; the ‘Three Strikes Rule’; mandatory minimum sentencing; ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws; and the voter disenfranchisement changes that have come as a result of the Supreme Court decision in the Shelby v. Holder case, you will see an all-too-common thread of public policy introductions and legal actions that have either positively or negatively impacted Black people in this country. It is time for Black people to stop treating politics like a taboo subject, and start treating politics like the primary solution it is. It is time for Black people to pull the trigger on politics.

Do You Care? How Much? What Will You Do Now?

By Marian Wright Edelman

“I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” were the puzzling and provocative words on the coat First Lady Melania Trump chose to wear when she visited the Texas border for the first time to be briefed about children cruelly separated from parents and shipped around the nation by abusive Trump Administration zero tolerance anti-immigration policies and practices. Were the six words showcased on her clothing simply thoughtless or callous or a challenge to those who care deeply about child wellbeing and are desperate to stop the inhumane practice of taking children from parents, some less than a year old, and shunting them to unknown destinations with strangers to be handed over to more strangers for care? I can only imagine the terror and despair felt by over 2,000 severed children and parents. It is sickening that thousands of children have been snatched from parents in a strange land and placed with strange caregivers, who may not speak their language, in detention facilities – even cages – with no timeline for how and when they will be reunited with their parents who may not know where they are. What cruel and unusual punishment for a country that purports to be civilized! This is national terrorism that shames us all! As the Trump Administration continues cruel policies which sever crucial child-parent bonds and ignores due process protections under American law, as more children and families continue to be confined in detention and other facilities, I hope our voices will reach a thundering roar to penetrate the moral deafness of this Administration. The antiimmigrant sentiment whipped up by the intemperate rhetoric of our President is similar to another historic period of toxic hatred, bigotry and intolerance during slavery which dehumaninzed millions and severed family bonds. We must meet today's snatching of children from parents with roaring nonviolent resistance. In his famous 1852 Fourth of July address, the brilliant former slave and abolitionist Frederick Douglass said, “What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer: a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your

We must make understand our national holiday? clear that “Yes, we really do care” and Amidst loud fireworks and colorful do whatever is necessary to stop the parades and eloquent speeches shameful national child abuse that about freedom will she recognize tarnishes our nation.

God did not make two classes of children and values each child as God’s own sacred gift regardless of race, ethnicity and religion. I share this prayer to the God of All Children and hope our current Administration will recover its sense of moral decency and respect for the sacredness of every child. A Prayer to the God of All Children O God of the children of El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico, of Myanmar, Syria Nigeria, Sudan, South Africa and South Carolina, Of Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Israel, Iran, Iraq, Libya and Yemen Of Rohingya and Palestinian children and refugee children without a safe country or space to welcome them, Help us to love and respect and protect and welcome them all.

Republican Leadership Determined to Snatch Defeat from the Jaws of Victory By Printus LeBlanc This has been a banner week for the Republicans, the Supreme Court favorable for conservatives on several key issues this week, the left showed just how crazy it has become by condoning violence against political opponents, and the economic news is stupendous. Republicans are on a roll, what could possibly stop them? Enter GOP leadership. Because the mainstream media said family separation was an issue, House GOP leadership is determined to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants in the hopes of fixing the family separation issue at the border. Never mind telling people not to send their children here with smugglers or don’t illegally cross the border at all. GOP leadership sends the message that if you get here, we will give you amnesty. Over the last two weeks, the House has debated and voted on two different immigration

bills, the Goodlatte bill and the leadership “compromise” also known as amnesty. Last week the House voted on the Goodlatte bill with it only garnering 193 votes, a much higher vote count than expected. The compromise bill was scheduled to be voted on after the Goodlatte bill, but it quickly became clear something was wrong when the bill was pulled. Know we know what was wrong. The vote for leadership’s compromise bill was held on Tuesday, and the results were embarrassing. The bill leadership crafted by hand and whipped was only able to get 121 votes, barely half the number of Republicans in the House, 235. Why bring that bill to the floor? It is shameful Republican leadership did not whip the original Goodlatte bill but decided to put all of its might behind the compromise. What did abandoning campaign promises get them? The compromise bill

embarrassingly failed by only judges, and funds temporary collecting 121 votes, 72 fewer shelters. Every Democrat and votes than the Goodlatte bill. As media personality should be Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said tripping over themselves to on CBS’ Face the Nation, “If our endorse the Cruz fix.

This bill mandates families that come is an election issue President here illegally be kept together, Trump won on, and the latest CBS authorizes new immigration poll proves it is an election issue

the Republicans can win on in November. The poll was heavily biased towards Democrats, and the results still showed 48 percent of Americans wanted families that cross the border illegally sent back to their country of origin. George Santayana famously said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Apparently, GOP leadership has never heard of this. They are determined to repeat President Reagan’s greatest mistake by granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. That move sent California into a socialism spiral it has not and is likely to never recover from. Why would the GOP ever want to inflict the mortal wound of socialism on Texas and Florida? Republicans should take President Trump’s advise and win more seats in November. Printus LeBlanc is a contributing editor at Americans for Limited Government.

NEWS California Sues Nation's Largest Student Loan Servicer By Don Thompson SACRAMENTO— California's attorney general announced he is suing the nation's largest student loan processor, alleging it is harming consumers by failing to properly service the debts.

ATTORNEY General Xavier Becerra said the state will sue Navient Corp., contending the Delaware-based company financially harmed thousands of Californians. He said the firm systematically and illegally failed to properly service federal student loans by steering borrowers to more expensive repayment plans, failing to tell them how to

switch to income-driven repayment plans or how those with disabilities could end their debts and misrepresenting how it handled payments. “No one should have their American dream shattered because some loan servicing company is cheating these future leaders of a chance to move ahead,” Becerra said, a Democrat running in the November election.

STATEPOINT CROSSWORD THEME: LIFE UNDERGROUND

Navient president and CEO Jack Remondi called the allegations unfounded and the lawsuit “another attempt to blame a single servicer for the failures of the higher education system and the federal student loan program to deliver desired outcomes.” “The need to blame someone has driven these lawsuits,” Remondi said in a statement citing the company's low default rates and high enrollment in alternative repayment programs. About 4.6 million Americans were in default on their student loans as of December, according to the Department of Education. That's more than double what it was four years ago, and more than 10 percent of the 42.8 million Americans who currently have a student loan backed by the department. Of the roughly 12 million

borrowers serviced by Navient, Becerra said about 1.5 million live in California. Becerra said Navient also assigned thousands of delinquent loans to its subsidiaries, Pioneer and General Revenue Corp., and alleged those subsidiaries misled borrowers about their options. The state may seek debt relief, repayment of overpayments, forgiveness of loans and other remedies, Becerra said. Publicly traded Navient was formerly part of Sallie Mae, which began as a government entity that serviced federal education loans. Navient became a separate company in 2014. The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and attorneys general in Illinois and Washington sued Navient early last year alleging similar

violations. Pennsylvania's attorney general sued the firm in October over its riskier subprime student loans. Last month, the Trump administration announced it was closing the consumer bureau's student lending office, potentially limiting its investigation of abuses by companies in the $1.5 trillion student loan market. The federal office also investigated and sued forprofit education company Corinthian Colleges. On Wednesday, a federal magistrate in San Francisco dismissed a separate Becerra lawsuit alleging the Trump administration illegally backed away from an Obama-era promise to quickly forgive the loans of Corinthian students. The magistrate gave the state 30 days to show it has the right to sue the U.S. Department of Education.

toward rehabilitating this public works service for the residents of Oxnard.” Oxnard is a full-service city that serves more than 200,000 residents and hundreds of local businesses. Its wastewater collection system is in need of emergency repairs to prevent a disastrous system

failure, which could impact residents and the surrounding sensitive coastal environment. In addition to Oxnard, the treatment plant serves the City of Port Hueneme, the Port Hueneme military base, the Channel Islands community services district and residents in Las Posas.

Jordan said there are plans to add more lighting to Colonial Park. “Those plans have been approved,” he said. “As soon as the specifications are done it’s going out to bid.” He said they'll split the work into two phases. “We’re adding more LED lights to the existing field lights and brighten up that area, and the plan is to add some new pole lights on the south side. The idea is to bring the whole light level up in that park for security and other reasons.” Jordan said they designed a new jogging path for Thompson Park. “Those plans have been approved, and they’re almost ready to go to bid,” he said. “There is a jogging path that goes around the entire perimeter of the park; we’re removing a portion of the lawn

and installing concrete curbs that have a resilient surface inbetween and it will be like Del Sol Park." He said the electrical engineer is working on the lighting at Beck Park. “It’s pretty much the north end of the park,” he said. “On the south side you have the field lights for the baseball fields, but on those fields, we're adding LED lamps that are about 30 feet above the grade.” He plans to ask for money for cameras in the parks. Jordan said the city has completed it's phase two assessment at Lemonwood Park, and they’ve found some chemicals at the location. “It’s very low on the scale, so the thought was to cap it with concrete,” he said. “We won’t have to go through the remediation project, and it will be safe and secure.” At Fremont Park, he said the task is to provide three area lights. “The electrical plans are done, but we found out in the process that Fremont Park is on school property,” he said. “There is a joint use agreement that dates back to the mid1970’s, so we asked the school district if we can get the joint use agreement updated so we can proceed with the lights in that park. I think the cost is $500-$600 dollars a year, so not very much.” Hearne thanked Jordan for his input. “We can probably continue this (discussion) at the next meeting,” he said.

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.

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.

LEGAL Chamberlain Street, Ventura, CA 93004 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address or other common designation, if any, shown above. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder's sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. The requirements of California Civil Code Section 2923.5(b)/2923.55(c) were fulfilled when the Notice of Default was recorded. 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 714-730-2727 or visit this Internet Web site www.ndscorp.com/sales, using the file number assigned to this case 17-20475-SPCA. 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.

HEALTH

Saving the Earth with Artificial Intelligence (AI)? Artificial Intelligence (AI), defined as the capability of machines to imitate intelligent human behavior and learn from data, is considered by many to be the final frontier of computing. And environmentalists and tech companies are now harnessing the power of AI to service to the environment.

T

O wit, Microsoft announced in December 2017 that it is expanding its “AI for Earth” program and committing $50 million over the next five years to put AI technologies in the hands of individuals and organizations working to solve global environmental challenges, including climate change as well as water, agriculture and biodiversity issues. Lucas Joppa, Microsoft’s first Chief Environmental Scientist, is convinced that AI is now mature enough and the global environmental crisis acute enough to justify the creation of an AI platform for the planet. “I believe that for every environmental problem, governments, non-profits, academia and the technology industry need to ask two questions: ‘How can AI help solve this?’ and ‘How can we facilitate the application

Smart Power Grids

Clean Energy and Smart Grids: Where Are We Now? Hospital also earns top-5 rankings nationwide in four pediatric specialty categories in U.S. News & World Report's 2018-19 annual survey

Children’s Hospital LA Ranks Nationally Again

For decades, scientists have been warning us about global warming and the types of risks we face if we don’t change the way we treat the planet. Still, there are many skeptics who choose to chime in and spark a global warming debate. However, scientists continue to warn the public about global warming, backed with research and horrifying projections that the Earth could heat up to 2.5 degrees Fahrenheit, even if we make drastic changes, and 10 degrees if we don’t. Clearly, action is necessary. There are many sources of clean energy available — solar, wind, hydro — and while they each have their positive aspects, not all of them can compete with the energy sources we currently use. However, smart grids can make it possible to combine multiple types of renewable energy sources, and create a more powerful and comprehensive system. So where are we now with sustainable energy and smart grids? Sustainable Energy Sources It can be difficult to compare different energy sources, as they all fit into the energy and sustainability schemes differently. However, one way to do so is to break down the pros and cons of each type of energy source. Currently, we depend mainly on nonrenewable sources to provide us with energy, including petroleum, natural gas, and coal. These three types of energy all emit pollutants when burned, are nonrenewable resources, and can

cause environmental damage. However, sustainable and environment-friendly sources of energy are quickly gaining popularity. Solar, wind, and hydro power all provide virtually clean energy. Switching to these sustainable sources of energy is inevitable and can steer the fate of our planet to a more positive future, but it’s not a clear-cut process. Each type of power has its own downsides. For example, windmills can be lethal to birds that fly into the turbines, and hydro power requires dams to be built that can damage aquatic ecosystems. Another issue with these energy sources is that they aren’t available everywhere, and they aren’t as reliable as other sources. Wind turbines, for example, naturally have to be placed in areas with a lot of wind. Solar panels won’t be efficient in places that don’t have enough sunlight to harvest power. With the advancement of technology, however, scientists and engineers are coming up with ways to move past these obstacles. The Value of Smart Grids One major way to overcome the obstacles and shortcomings of sustainable energy sources is with smart grids. Smart grids aim to support and combine the energy from hydro, wind, and solar energy sources to provide a more comprehensive source of energy. Smart grids also work to make sure the energy is used in a balanced way to optimize its use and lower costs for users.

Rape Victim's Story Is Window on Injustice, Activism

By Lynn Elber

Joe Jackson Dead at 89

LOS ANGELES (AP)— When Oprah Winfrey saluted unheralded (hash) MeToo crusaders at the Golden Globes last January, she chose a rape victim from 1940s Alabama to drive home her point.

By Stacy M. Brown Joseph Jackson, the patriarch of the Jackson family of superstars, has died. Family members said Jackson died at 3:30 a.m. Wednesday at a hospital in Las Vegas. Jackson was 89. After his own failed musical aspirations, Joseph Jackson help launch his children to international stardom in the 1960s and 1970s. He managed the Jackson 5 before the group left Motown and was rebranded as the Jacksons. Ultimately, the patriarch is responsible for the emergence of the biggest star in pop music history, the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Last week, the family announced that Jackson was terminally ill following a long battle with cancer. “He’s very frail. It’s any day now,” Jermaine Jackson told reporters shortly before his father died. Born in 1928, in the one-horse town of Fountain Hill, Arkansas, Joe’s grandfather was a slave and he later described his upbringing as “lonely” and with “few friends,” according to his biography. His parents separated when he was 12 and after a period living with his father in California, he moved to be with his mother and four siblings in a Chicago suburb and pursued his dream of becoming a professional boxer. It was while living with his mother that he met and married local girl

RECY Taylor, a name I know, and I think you should know, too,” Winfrey said, sketching the outlines of the African-American woman's assault by six white youths and her quest for justice. Taylor's wrenching story and its connection to female civil rights activists, most notably Rosa Parks, are illuminated in filmmaker Nancy Buirski's documentary “The Rape of Recy Taylor.” The film aired Monday on the Starz channel and available on the Starz app. Taylor, who died last December at age 97 shortly after the film's theatrical release, is seen and heard briefly in it. Her words are powerful despite her frailty. “I can't but tell the truth of what they done to me,” she said, condemning both her attackers and the authorities who weren't “concerned about what happened to me.” The film mixes orthodox documentary elements—accounts from Taylor's relatives and other contemporaries, the perspectives of historians—with haunting visual touches and music such as Fannie Lou Hamer's “Go Tell It on the Mountain.” It blends into somber, unsettling poetry. There are clips from so-called “race films,” vintage movies made by African-American moviemakers, including one in which a distraught woman flees from unseen danger. In a scene from Oscar Micheaux's “Within Our Gates” (1920), a white man attacks a Black woman. The movie excerpts help “communicate very quickly that this didn't just happen to Recy Taylor” and help broaden one woman's ordeal to a “much larger canvas” about the peril Black women faced, filmmaker Buirski

said. I n 1 9 4 4 Taylor, then a 24-yearold married mother, was walking to her Abbeville, Alabama, home after an evening church service with two friends, an older woman and her son. Local whites out joyriding stopped them and, at gunpoint, demanded Taylor got in their car. They raped her repeatedly and, after forcing money into her hand, released her after she agreed to remain silent. She stumbled home “crying and upset,” recalls her brother, Robert Corbitt. “Those young boys felt like they can do it and get away with it. They really felt like they could. They know nothing was going to happen to them.” But Taylor fought back, recounting the assault to the local sheriff. Her courage put her family at risk—their home was firebombed—and eventually led

to two faint-hearted, failed efforts to bring the case to trial in the Jim Crow South. The roots of such inaction run deep. Yale associate professor Crystal N. Feimster, who is part of the documentary, has written that it was a legal impossibility for a female slave to file rape charges against a white man in any Southern state before 1861. Northern Black newspapers doggedly covered Taylor's case as it unfolded, prompting AfricanAmerican protests and action by the NAACP. The civil rights group dispatched Parks, then the secretary in its Montgomery, Alabama, office, to meet with Taylor—before Parks gained fame as the woman whose refusal to move to the back of a segregated bus sparked a powerful boycott. In a newspaper photo taken at the time, Taylor stares directly at the camera with an expression both stolid and determined. It's a portrait of a young woman prepared to stand her ground. At one point, the Abbeville sheriff dismissed Taylor as “nothing but a whore” whom he'd arrested before, then admitted she had never been jailed and that she and her family were of good

reputation. Filmmaker Buirski, who recounted the groundbreaking interracial marriage of Richard and Mildred Loving in a documentary and was a producer on the bigscreen drama “Loving,” learned of Taylor from historian Danielle L. McGuire's 2010 book, “At the Dark End of the Street: Black Women, Rape, and Resistance.” “One of the things that I felt so strongly about in this film (and ‘The Loving Story' documentary) is you have people who have the moral courage to stand up, and they change history as a result,” Buirski said. “They don't have to be activists. Anybody can change history.” There's a question she's fielded before, about why a white New Yorker felt compelled to make a film about Taylor, and she has a ready answer. “I do feel that whites and Blacks should be telling stories about each other. I think that whites in particular have a responsibility to deal with this information because whites really are the reason for the suffering that a lot of Blacks had,” she said. Was she the right person to make the documentary?

Jury: Dr. Dre’s Ex-Business Partner Owed $25M By Andrew Dalton LOS ANGELES (AP)—A jury on Wednesday found that Dr. Dre, music mogul Jimmy Iovine and their headphone company Beats Electronics LLC owe a former partner $25.2 million in royalties. The Los Angeles Superior Court jury found Wednesday by a 9-3 margin that Beats breached a contract with Steven Lamar and his company Jibe Audio. Dr. Dre and Iovine, the music producer and co-founder of Interscope Records, were not in court for the verdict. Both testified during the three-week trial and sat in the audience for opening statements. The suit said Lamar in 2006 came to Dr. Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, with the idea for celebrity-endorsed headphones. Attorneys for Lamar contended he was owed over $130 million for a dozen different models of headphones. The defendants acknowledged

The defendants acknowledged that Lamar was involved in initial plans, but argued he was only owed for one product.

that Lamar was involved in initial plans, but argued he was only owed for one product, the original Studio model, and was already paid.

“The jury really validated our theory of the case, that Mr. Lamar was involved in the founding of Beats,” Lamar's attorney Stephen E. Morrissey said outside court.

“It's not everything we were asking for, but we're happy.” Lamar said the award could grow because of future sales of headphones still on the market. Beats attorneys declined comment outside court. A minimum of nine jurors had to agree to reach a verdict. The verdict, reached after three days of deliberations, did not break down separate amounts to be paid by each defendant. Beats, which added a music streaming service after its 2006 founding as a headphone company, was acquired by Apple in a $3 billion deal in May of 2014. The lawsuit was filed four months earlier and does not name Apple as a defendant. Apple representatives did not immediately respond to phone calls and emails seeking comment. The $25.2 million award is pocket change for Apple. Based on earnings in the past fiscal year, it generates that much revenue, on average, every hour of the day.

It was when he caught nineyear-old son Tito playing with his guitar in 1962 that Joe’s fortunes changed. Katherine Scruse and, in 1950, the couple moved to nearby Gary, Indiana, and within eight years had 10 children, including twins Marlon and Brandon, the latter of whom died at birth. The pressures of looking after his family meant Jackson had to abandon boxing to work full time, though he also played guitar with a blues band named The Falcons. Although he remained frustrated at The Falcons’ lack of success, it was when he caught nine-year-old son Tito playing with his guitar in 1962 that Joe’s fortunes changed. Despite initially threatening Tito with punishment for snapping a string, he urged his son to keep playing. Jackson then encouraged Jermaine and Jackie to join Tito in forming a group, later adding Marlon to it, and eventually Michael. Five years later The Jackson 5 played New York’s Apollo Theatre in Harlem and in 1969 they were signed to Motown Records. Their first single, “I Want You Back,” was released that same year and shot straight to No. 1. The Jackson 5 set a world record as the first musical act ever to sell 10 million records in 10 months. With Jackson managing his children, they became world-renown stars. “If I could go back there, to us being those kids in Gary, I’d trade all of this in for that,” Jermaine Jackson said. “To much has happened, you get lawyers, agents and everyone pulling at you. It wrecks the family,” he said. As the calendar turned to the 1980s, the patriarch began to lose his grip on his sons’ careers, particularly Michael, who under other management would turn out the groundbreaking album, “Off the Wall,” and then the supremely popular and world’s bestselling LP, “Thriller.” Jackson also earned a reputation as a strict disciplinarian who sometimes went over the top when administering punishment. During a 1993 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jackson described “regurgitating” whenever he’d see his dad. “Yeah, he regurgitates all the way to the bank,” Joseph Jackson said after Michael’s comment. “I taught them to be tough. We raised them in a tough neighborhood, where other kids were in gangs and getting into drugs. I didn’t want them to be soft. I whipped him with a switch and a belt. I never beat him. You beat someone with a stick.” Jackson also managed the careers of his daughters, Latoya and Janet, who first earned fame as “Penny,” an abused foster child on the 1970s hit television show, “Good Times.” She later appeared on “Diff’rent Strokes,” and “Fame.” Today, Janet is considered one of the world’s biggest music stars and she also has several film credits under her belt, including Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married?” In 2011, Janet reflected on her relationship with her father. “I wish our relationship was different,” she said. “I think my father means well and wants nothing but the best for his kids… but that is not necessarily the right way.”
