|BRO. MINISTER OF DEFENSE: HUEY P. NEWTON|
In this second installment of our "Black Fist Everyday Black History Series", We are going to review the life of our beloved brother and co-founder of the Black Panther Party, Bro. Huey P. Newton. Huey P. Newton was a strong, bold, revolutionary Black man with a vision. He stood up and spoke out on behalf of black people, along with the other members of the Black Panthers and taught us that "self-defense" was a gift given to us by the Creator not the white man.
I dig that for sure. Well let's take a trip into the life of Huey P. Newton and see what he went through to get to where he got. And yes, for all of you wanna-be "blog scholars" out there, I meant to phrase it just as it is typed, OK? OK.
Now, let's get into the life & vision of Bro. Huey P. Newton shall we? General Nikki X likes to call this second installment of our series: "Bro. Minister of Defense!"
HUEY P. NEWTON 1942-1989
Huey P. Newton (1942-1989) founded the Afro-American Society and was a co-founder of the Black Panther Party, serving as its minister of defense during much of the 1960s. Later he turned to community service for the poor.
Huey P. Newton was born Febuary 17, 1942, in Monroe, Louisiana. The youngest of seven children, Huey was named for former governor Huey Pierce Long. The Newton family moved to Oakland, California, in 1945 to take advantage of the job opportunities created by World War II wartime industries. In Oakland the famiuly moved often, and in one house Huey was compelled to sleep in the kitchen. Even though the Newton's were poor and victims of discrimination and segregation, Huey contends that he never felt deprived as a child and that he never went hungry.
Huey attended the Oakland public schools where, he claimed, he was made to feel "uncomfortable and ashamed of being black." He responsed by constantly and consistantly defying authority, which resulted in frequent suspensions. At the age of 14, he was arrested for gun possession and vandalism. In his autobiography, Revolutionary Suicide, Newton wrote, "during those long years in the Oakland public schools, I did not have one teacher who taught me anything relevant to my own life and my own experience. Not one instructor ever awoke in me a desire to learn more or to question or explore the worlds of literature, science, and history. All they did was try to rob me of the sense of my own uniqueness and worth, and in the process they nearly killed my urge to inquire."
According to Newton, he did not learn to read well until he had finished high school. "I actually learned how to read--really read more than just 'dog' and 'cat'. which was about all I could do when I left high school--by listening to records of Vincent Price reading great poetry, and then looking up the poems to see how the words looked." In order to prove that high school counselors were wrong in saying he was not college material, Newton attended law at Merritt College intemittently, eventually earning an Associate of Arts degree. He also studied law at Oakland City College and at San Franciso Law School.
Newton claimed he studied law to become a better burglar. He was arrested several times for minor offenses while still a teenager and he supported himself in college by burglarizing homes in the Oakland and Berkeley Hills area and running the "short change" game. In 1964, at age 22, he was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon and sentenced to 6 months in the Alameda County jail. Newton spent most of his sentence in solitary confinement, including the "soul breaker"--extreme solitary confinement.
While at Oakland City College, Newton had become politically oriented and socially conscious. He joined the Afro-American Association and played a role in getting the first black history course adopted as a part of the college's curriculum. He read the works of Frantz Fanon, Malcolm X, Chairman Mao Tse-tung, and Che Guevara. A child of the ghetto and a victim of discrimination and the "system", Newton was very much aware of the plight of Oakland's African-AMerican community. Realizing that there were few organizations to speak for or represent lower class African-Americans, Newton along with Bobby Seale organized the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense in October 1966, with Seale as chairman and Newton as minister of defense. Like a wary panther that would not attack unless attacked, so too was the organization regarded.
Cop-haters since childhood, Newton and Seale decided the police must be stopped from harrassing Oakland's African-American; in other words, to "defend the community against the aggression of the power structure, including the military and the armed might of the police." Newton was familiar with the California penal code and the state's law regarding weapons and was thus able to convince a number of African-Americans of their right to bear arms. Member of the Black Panther Perty for Self-Defense began patrolling the Oakland police. Guns were the essential ingredient on these patrols. Newton and the other Black Panther members observed police procedure, ensured that African-American citizens were not abused, advised African-Americans of their rights, and posted bail for those arrested. In addition to patrolling the police, Newton and Seale were responsible for writing the Black Panther Party Platform and Program, which called for freedom, full employment, decent housing, education, and military exemption for African-Americans. But there was a darker side to the group, described in Former Panther Earl Anthony's book, Spitting in the Winds a party created with the goal to organize America for armed revolution. Moreover, Washington, D.C., intelligence spent many years trying to bring down what they beleived to be "the most violence-proned of all the extremist groups." Huey Newton proved to be as violent as the party he helped to create when he was thrust into the national limelight in October 1967; accused of murdering Oakland police officer John Frey. In September 1968 Newton was convicted of voluntary manslaughter and was sentenced to 2 to 15 years in prison. In May 1970 the Californai Appeallate Court reversed Newton's conviction and ordered a new trial. After two more trials the State of Californai dropped its case against Newton, citing technicalities including the judge's failure to relay proper instructions to the jury.
After his release from prison Newton overhauled the Black Panther Party, revised its program, and changed its rhetoric. While he had been imprison, party membership had decreased significantly in several cities, and the FBI had started a campaign to disrupt and eventually bring down the Black Panthers. Abandoning its Marxist-Leninist ideology, Newton now concentrated on community survival programs. The Black Panthers sponsors a free breakfast programs for children, sickle-cell anemia tests, free food and shoes, and a school, the Samuel Napier Intercommunal Youth Insitutute. However, as before, the Black Panthers were not without controversy. Funding for several of their programs were raised as the result of the co-operation of drug dealers and prostitution rings.
Newton tried to shed his image as a firebreathing revolutionary, but he continued to have difficulty with the police. In 1974 several assault charges were filed against him, and he was also accused of murdering a 17-year-old prostitute, Kathleen Smith. Newton failed to make his court appearance. His bail was revoked, a bench warrant issued, and his name added to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's most wanted list. Newton had jumped bail and escaped to Cuba, where he spent 3 years in exile. In Cuba he worked as a machinist and a teacher. He returned home in 1977 to face murder charges because, he said, the climate in the Unites States had changed and he beleived he could get a fair trial. He was acquitted of the murder of Kathleen Smith after two juries were deadlocked.
In addition to organizing the Black Panther Party and serving as its minister of defense, Newton unsuccessfully ran for Congress as a candidate of the Peace and Freedom Party in 1968. In 1971, between his second and third trials for the murder of John Frey, he visited China for 10 days, where he met with Premier Chou En-lai and Chang Ch'ing, the wife of Chairman Mao Tse-tung. While there he was offered political asylum. Newton studied for a Ph.D. in history of social consciousness at the University of California in 1978. In 1985 the 43-year-old Newton was arrested for embezzling state and federal funds from the Black Panthers community education and nutrition programs. In 1989 he was convicted of embezzling funds from a school run by the Black Panthers, supposely to support his alcohol and drug addictions. By this time the Panthers had turned to less violent activism. On August 22, 1989, Newton was gunned down by a drug dealer, ironically in the same city streets of Oakland that saw the rise of the Black Panthers 23 years ago. Bill Turque in Newsweek described a sad but appropriate farewell: "A small florist's card, resting with bouquets of red gladiolus's and white dahlias on a chain-link fence near the shooting scene, summed it up: "Huey: for the early years."
Well folks, there you have it, the life story of our beloved Huey P. Newton. What did you think of that? We welcome your comments and thoughts regarding the lifeworks of this strong black man who "co-founded" one of the most powerful, bold, revolutionary Black activism organizations ever to be founded here in the hells of North America. Bro. Huey P. Newton beleived in the "Art of Self-Defense" and he didn't mind showing the whiteman his skills when provoked!
The Black Fist organization will be forever grateful to the Black Panther Party for paving the way and being the strong bold revolutionary Black men and Black women that they were and even today, who they continue to be. They taught us to do for one another, to do for self and to love being Black! And they showed us that police brutality can be dealt with in the streets and that when the pigs come into our neighorhood looking to brutalize and dehumanize us we have a God-giving right to defend ourselves by any means neccessary! And the police can also be can be "patrolled."
The Black Panther Party is to be commended for all of their good works in the Black community and for their teachings of Black Pride, Black Unity, Black Love and of course, "Self-Defense!"
They were one of the first to proudly and boldly raise their "black fist" in the air and shout, "Black Power!!!".....
No matter who was around!

88.3 WHAT RADIO WAS MEANT TO SEE, ERR, I MEAN BE!
What in the world is going on over at 88.3 WAIF radio? I read in the http://city beat.com that Board chair Donald Shabazz has placed cameras in the WAIF studios and in certain locations outside the studio. Is this a good move or a bad move on Shabazz's part? I don't know I think it could work both ways. It could be a good move because of security and as stated in the article, to keep equiptment and the surrounding studio in working condition and not abused by WAIF programmers and their sidekicks. But it could also be a bad move because it allows Shabazz and whomever else to spy on folks, maybe edit and do a little mischief involving those surveillence tapes.
And just who views and reviews these tapes? And if someone is found to have committed some variation of an abuse of equiptment or someone operating the boards who have absolutely no training to do so, what's the penalty? Is that person fired? Suspended? What? Those are some of the questions I've heard floated around the community since this story broke.
Our dear brother, Nathaniel Livingston Jr. blogged about this very subject and his take on what's happening at WAIF is a very interesting one. Please see this-- http://blackcincinnati.blogspot.com scroll down to Shabazz Spying at WAIF.
There's someone else out in the bloggersphere who is actively on top of this whole WAIF camera deal and that's our good friend, The Dean of Cincinnati. You can find his thoughts and his "Open Letter To Donald Shabazz" right here at http://thecincinnatibeacon.com and scroll on down till you find the above title.
These two interesting and journalist-minded fellows just may be on to something right beneath the surface, something the rest of us may not even be aware of. We here at The Black Fist Blog will also be keeping a close eye on this simmering story. WAIF has always been a great source of community news and views you sometimes more often than not get anywhere else. It is a community radio station. The Black Fist, as an Organization have been long-time supporters of WAIF radio in general and we do indeed support the follow programs as enlightening our black community to different subjects and divergent points of view:
I even enjoy "The Bottomline" with host Larry Arnett. When I want nothing more than straight comedy, belly laughs and I don't have anything else better to do. You'll have to call WAIF for programming day & time for that show, I won't be giving it out here. "Why?" Because I don't advocate folks listening to it (unless all you wanna do IS laugh) because as I stated its just comedy, buffoonery never to be taken seriously, never to beleive anything you hear. And 2 of the regular crybaby callers of that show are nothing more than straight punks, liars, losers, tricks, non-driving traffic violators, court-skippers, always gotta capias hanging over their empty heads, jailbirds, one day so-called "christians", the next day "troublemaking instigating phonies and (apparently) some scared ass muthaf***** right about now, begging the whiteman (Arnett and his listeners) for "personal security" while srcreaming, hollering and trying to convince folks they are big, bad and "militant". Yes, all of those adjectives described those 2 imbecilic callers. So that's that on that.
These are the following Questions I have concerning WAIF:
I'm asking the questions that the people I've talk to in this community want to know. I still beleive there are alot of good folks over at WAIF. But there are some folks who don't need programs if all they do is sit on the air and use whatever time given them whether it be 1 hour, 2 hours or I'm told 4 hours to do nothing more than talk against people like Master Fard Muhammad, (Peace be upon him) The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, (Peace be upon him) The Nation of Islam and the beautiful brothers and sisters at Mosque #5 under the leadership and guidance of our dear brother Minister James Muhammad who is the local representative and Minister under the divine teachings of our beloved brother and Leader of The Nation of Islam, Minister Louis Farrakhan.
I mean, I'm told there are some people out there who are extremely angered at what was said during a recent WAIF fill-in show and the 2 idiots who ran that fisaco of a show who blasted The Nation of Islam, Mosque #5, Their leadership and their Savior Master Fard Muhammad, (Peace be upon him) along with this upcoming Savior's Day on February 28th.
Maybe Donald Shabazz who is a member of The Nation of Islam, who belongs to Mosque #5, who has a regular weekly program named after The Nation of Islam's national newspaper "The Final Call" (go out and find one of the beautiful brothers and buy one today) who also happens to be the Board Chairman at WAIF mentioned in the City Beat story should take the time to look DEEP into the going ons and activities of all staff, regular programmers and programs, fill-in programmers and programs and the hate-filled speech/defamatory rhetoric that apparently fills the airwaves on this station.
Maybe cameras at WAIF isn't so bad after all. Maybe there's more to what's going on at WAIF than the general public really knows. Maybe we should thank the folks over there at City Beat Magazine for taking the time to run this thought-provoking story. I don't quite know. But what I do know is WAIF had better be extremely careful and aware of who they have as "talk show host" because "enlightening dialogue & divergent points of view" is one thing but "hate-speech" is not considered under the United States constitution, as Free Speech.
General Nikki X will continue to support and listen to WAIF and I'm sure the other members of The Black Fist will too. But we will not support blacks fighting blacks, slander, defamation and the rest of the buffoonary that goes on -via- a "couple of losers" whose plight nobody cares about and whom nobody takes seriously.
It is the principle of the thing.
For now the cameras are up and some folks don't like it, Some folks do....Oh well all I will say for now is keep listening to 88.3 WAIF, "What radio was meant to SEE, err, I mean BE!"
|"WITNESS INTIMIDATION"=LONG INCARCERATION!|
This is another Black Fist 'Round The Nation Special Report. This particular story comes straight out of the city of Baltimore, Maryland, It's known to can get REAL HOT right up along in there, ya know.
Check this story out and give us some feedback on what you think about the activism of the victim, the crime and the penalty.
There are similiarities in the crime committed in Baltimore and what some of you may have read in the newspapers here locally involving a similiar [alleded] crime being committed. That's if any of you out there were really paying any attention. Which from what I've heard from many, y'all wasn't even all that interested. Well to each his own.
Now on to our story.....
GANG LEADER SENTENCED IN INTIMIDATION CASE
BALTIMORE - A gang leader was sentenced Tuesday to 80 years in prison for trying to intimidate a neigborhood anti-drug activist by firebombing her home.
Terrence Smith was leader of the Bloods gang that planned the January 2005 attack on Harwood Community Association President Edna McAbier, who repeatedly told police about neighborhood drug deals, prosecutors said.
McAbier was not hurt and the fire started by the beer bottle-and-gasoline Molotov cocktales caused only minor damages.
Smith, 24, of Baltimore, was convicted in December. Two co-defendants were sentenced earlier to 60 years in prison each.
The Story Ends There. Now A Few Comments From General Nikki X:
Damn!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 80 years and 60 years a piece!!!!!! They weren't playing up in Baltimore were they?!? I know that "intimidating a witness" is a very very serious crime and should not be taken lightly by no means at all. Ms. Edna McAbier was trying her best, it appears, to clean up her neighborhood from the selling of illegal narcotics and this drug dealer/gang leader (as it is stated within the story and of course, as we know from experience right here in good ol' racist Sinsinnati, you can't belive everything you read in the newspapers) called himself intimidating this woman, by no less going to her home.
Now when a big bad someone goes to a persons place of residence that's some very serious shit and you could be going there to bully and intimidate your intended victim but could wind up getting more than you came looking for. You just don't do business like that, I mean, in my most humble opinion, ANYONE who would go to someones home with the intent to intimidate, bully, talk that bullshit and so-call flex their manhood is nothing more than a chicken-shit bitch-ass coward of the 550th degree and their asses SHOULD be behind bars doing time and reflecting on their crime while crying in the arms of their new lover named Bubba!
A top-notch 100% super-soldier in The Black Fist by the name of General Emerald also says, "If you can't do tha time, don't do crime!" And this highly-trained in the art of self-defense General also says, "If can't pay tha cost, you really ain't tha boss!" Our General, General Emerald knows these streets and this elite General has been out here along time, grew up in the West End and has done battle with the best of them for years upon years and one thing about it, This General would NEVER go to someones home to flex, bully and sell woof tickets. Oh hell naw, I'm told only a scared ass punk would do something as low as that. Especially if it's a man-to-man type of situtation!
It's almost like the Klu Klux Klan in my opinion cause they have a long extended history of riding up on a (in their despicable uneducated words) nigger and firebomb the home, bust out the windows, kick in the doors, intimadating the person and their family, lynching the black men and raping the black women along with killing the little black children.
Intimidation of a witness and/or intimidation [period] is a crime and should be dealt with as such!
That was some historical background and personal feelings that myself and General Emerald have regarding the cowardly crime of witness intimadation. And as in the Baltimore case, That activist/woman had a right to want her streets cleaned up from the filth and dealing of drugs without fear of retaliation and bodily harm. And in the opinion of The Black Fist regardless of race, the intimidator got just what the fuck they deserved and in the ruling of that Baltimore court it was a sentence of 60 and 80 fuckin' years a piece!
So it certaintly goes to show that high bonds and long jail time is not only doled out here in good ol' racist Sinsinnati, Ohio but in Baltimore, Maryland and around the nation.
And it also goes to show that WITNESS INTIMADATION EQUALS LONG INCARCERATION!
Just some words of wisdom, caution and reflections: Straight From The Black Fist "Book of Do's and Don'ts in tha hood"!
This was another Black Fist 'Round The Nation Special Report!
"IT MAY NOT ALWATYS BE GOOD NEWS BUT ITS HOOD NEWS!"

WHAT IN THE SAM HILLS GOING ON IN JACKSONVILLE?!?
This story comes straight out of the dirty south -via- the national newswire. Check this story out and read it carefully 'cause I most definately gotta feel some feedback on this one. This is another Black Fist 'Round The Nation "Special Report"!
We like to call this one: "What In The Sam Hills Going On In Jacksonville?!?"
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The NAACP is calling for a federal investigation of the city's Fire Department after two black firefighters reported finding hangman's nooses on their gear.
Isaiah Rumlin, president of the local chapter of The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said he will ask the Justice Department to investigate an alleged culture of racism in the Jacksonville Fire-Rescue Department.
Mayor John Peyton has asked the city's Human Rights Commission and the General Counsel's Office to investigate.
That Story Ends There. Now a few thoughts from General Nikki X:
Whathafu*@?!? HowthaFu*@?!? And Whathafu*@ year is this again?!? Now first things first -- It looks like racism is running rampant within the City of Jacksonville's Fire Departments. It looks like the Jacksonville Fire Department's black city employees a.k.a. firefighters are catching hell and (pardon the pun) "hot ones" down there just like the black firefighters right here in in good 'ol Sinsinnati, Ohio. But at least they are standing up and letting the world know and shining a light on what the (pardon the pun) devils going on down there!
We can never forget how the City of Sinsinnati treated our black fire chief good ol' Chief Robert Wright. Treated him and continues to treat him like he's just some "boy" who happens to be in a "mans" position as Cincinnati City Fire Chief. And who could ever forget when that Catholic "volunteer" priest who the newspapers referred to as "Priest Mike", was carrying tales and making mischief between the white firehouses and the black firehouses. Hell under the racist leadership of then Mayor Charles "Charlie John" Luken, Chief Wright, the black man couldn't even fire him. Did y'all hear me?!? I said the Black Fire Chief could NOT fire the white VOLUNTEER Catholic mischief making priest and no-good Luken (just as no-good Bush does when he needs some "colored" backup) even brought in then and now ex-city manager, a so-called black woman and Condaleeza Rice clone Valerie Lemmie to seal the deal and ensure "Priest Mike's" continued mischief making and Luken even made Chief Wright shake hands with "Priest Mike" right there in front of the cameras, right there in front of The Black Fist and right there on the floor of council! Luken would never even attempted to think about doing such a thing to the white Police Chief Tommy Streicher Jr. Aw hell to tha naw! NEVER! To make a long story short a few months later this same mischief making Catholic priest was accused of child molestion (as so many of his "co-workers" before him) and he was "let go/relieved" of his duties from the Cincinnati Fire Department. And remember that clown was just a v-o-l-u-n-t-e-e-r!
Now getting back to our story down in Jacksonville - Whathafu*@?!? At least their local NAACP is calling for something that resembles what the NAACP is suppose to stand for. At least they are calling for an investigation of "something" and for the most part I am pleased to hear that. Our own local chapter of the NAACP under the current leadership of Edith Thrower and under the past leadership of Norma Holt-Davis is and was too busy trying to raise money (for what I haven't the foggiest), participating in over priced hamhocked, pig's feet and chicken dinners and (just a few weeks ago) giving silly meaningless press conferences regarding the nomination of (then supreme court nominee) Samuel Alto to stand up and follow their own constitutional charter and bylaws of that organization. What they should be doing is calling press conferences about the serious decline in the health, wealth, well-being and economic destitution of black folk right under their noses. The local chapter here should be alittle concerned about the sky-high homicide rate in the black community, the sky-high unemployment rate in the black community, the sky-high level of hunger, homelessness, poverty and of course, racism, discrimination and police brutality that is running rampant through the black community along with the declining graduation rate of black children in the black community!
I know this story wasn't about the NAACP, per say, but I had to get that off my chest. It's been a long time coming! The Black firefighters in Jacksonville suffering under institutionalized racism, discrimination and working under a "hate-crime" filled environment should take it all the way to the highest court in this country to demand justice, to demand the firing of those racist clowns who like to play with nooses and receive monetary damages for their pain & suffering. Yes, I realize the highest court in this country is racist and unjust as hell when it comes to giving justice to blacks but we must utilize what we have while we are in this land. It's all we have until we are "monetarily repaired" in the form of Reparations then we can pack our shit & get the hell outta here and set up our own government in our own country! How you gonna have black firefighters trained and paid by taxpayers dollars to save lives and put out fires then turn around and have their white "co-workers", white firefighters who are also paid by taxpayers dollars, do some racist shit like hang nooses on their equiptment? It's crazy! But we are living in the hells of north america, where ain't nothing changed but the days and years on the calendar. The minds and mentality of the whiteman is still the same: hateful, racist, ignorant and scared. Yes, there are white folks (most of them) who are scared of black folks because they know we are highly intelligent, skillful and resourceful. On top of being the original men and women of this planet, created in the image and likeness of God.
So General Nikki X of The Black Fist will continue to monitor this "hate-crime", this very racist ugly situtation down in Jacksonville and report any new developments that arise back to you the faithful readers of this blog.
I would hope our local chapter of the NAACP would one day get their thumbs out of their butts and stand up, speak up, call for investigations of racial discrimination and police brutality (when necessary/when it occurs) and look into the practices of racial discrimination within the City of Cincinnati's city employees. There's not a week that goes by that Cincinnati city employee Doug Springs fails to call The Lincoln Ware Show on 1230am WDBZ "The Buzz" and complain (and I beleive rightfully so) about some kind of racial discrimination going on in the city's health dept.
Where's the NAACP when you really need 'em? Oh I forgot they're in front of news cameras speaking out about things they have absolutely no control over....like now Supreme Court Judge Samuel Alto.
I guess George W. Bush and the Senate in Washington, DC wasn't paying any attention to the local Cincinnati branch of the NAACP. I'll tell you - if that organization was doing their job then this city wouldn't need an organization like "The Black Fist!"
General Nikki X has said it before and she will say it again....."IT MAY NOT ALWAYS BE GOOD NEWS BUT IT'S HOOD NEWS!"
|A STATEMENT FROM GENERAL NIKKI X.....|
Black Power & Greetings My Beloved Brothas & Sistas,
As you well know this month is the month of February which is known for celebrating "Black History". February happens to also be the shortest month of the year, just a coincidence? Well I have my opinion on that and I'm sure you have yours.
However, This is "The Black Fist Blog" and we do things alittle diferently from the norm, wouldn't you say?
And in keeping with the philosphies and opinions of The Black Fist Organization, General Nikki X has established that "Black History", with the blessings of all members of The Black Fist, is EVERYDAY! "Why?" You maybe asking yourselves....
Because I said so.
So in keeping true to form with our establised beliefs, we here at The Black Fist Blog will be exploring some of our greatest and litle known freedom fighters/heroes/heroines to ever have stood up, spoken out and fought against slavery, racism, police brutality, injustice and many other vicious ills that have plagued black folks in this country since 1619.
As Head of Telecommunications for our organization, I feel it is my duty and obligation to share with all of you who read and enjoy, agree or disagree, with us to give a better understanding -or - simply put - a better "overstanding" of the strong black men and strong black women who paved the way and fought tooth & nail to ensure the rights, dignities and respect of all black folk of Afrikan desent trapped here in these so-called United States of America, which we call "The Hells of North America.".
I will be bringing these historic Black men and Black women to you in a 8-part series.
I am reworking a few things on this blog and soon I will be reinstating bright bold pictures into this 8-part series, as well as pictures to go along with my other blog entries.
I'm sure you remember the picture of (now) Mayor Mark L. Mallory and Brigadier General Nikki X as he proudly and boldly accepted "The Black Fist Endorsement For Mayor?" What some of you didn't know and I'll share with you today is, that former Cincinnati City Councilman and Current political failure/flop David Pepper intended to take that picture of Mayor Mallory and myself and use it for evil. And when my most trusted "sources" alerted me to that evil wicked and nasty plot attempted to be orchestrated by "the son of P & G" (as my good friend Nate Livingston calls him) I immediately sprang into action and removed that photo from this site and requested the same of all my fellow blogsters whom I had given express permission to post to their sites upon their express request. To which they conplied immediately. And I thank them once again today.
The plot was foiled, crybaby David Pepper slithered away with his tail between his legs in utter shame and defeat having lost the mayors' race and subsequently losing his City Councilman seat and Mayor Mark Mallory is just that "MAYOR" Mark Mallory!
Now -- in saying all of that, I felt this was the proper time to give "The Real Story" on why that picture was removed because we continue to hear so many foolish, stupid, ignorant and flat out bipolar-ridden babble-ladden comments from a "couple of losers" in this community that can't tell their own ears lobes from their assholes nor can they stop worrying themselves sick about "The Brigadier", this blog and my business. So they spread falsehood and incorrect information whereas I feel the truth and nothing but the truth should be told IN our black community and certainly TO our black community!
And be that as it may I just wanted to give some information, alerts and updates on what's happening and what's to come here on The Black Fist Blog, in truth and in love toward our beautiful black nation.
So please stay tuned for the first installment of our 8-part series. And if the readers out there enjoy and gain knowledge form our series, I will be more than delighted to incorporate more interesting stories about the lives of some of best and brightest!
Because On The Black Fist Blog Everyday Is A Day To Celebrate "Black History!"
BLACK FIST, BLACK POWER, BLACK NATION!!!

|THE LATEST SHOCKING NEWS ON TASERS!|
As alot of you out there already know The Black Fist has been calling for the last 3 years an official ban on the newest deadly weapon used around the country by law enforcement agencies including the Cincinnati Police Department called Tasers X26. Your General and sister General Nikki X wrote a scathing article in The Cincinnati Herald (which you can find in The Heralds' archive section) and right here on The Black Fist Blog called Tasers: "The Blackman's Portable Electric Chair!" (Please go back and review that entry, you can find it in the archives of this blog) Where I lambasted and blasted the use of tasers and spoke out against its overuse on black people in this city, which we feel contributed to the deaths of some of our black people that that "machine" was used upon.
We will continue to speak out against these deadly "portable electric chairs" for as long as they are used and abuse by the Cincinnati police and are contributing factors in the DEATHS of our people.
The subject of this entry is startling and quite frankly downright unbeleivable. It would appeared based on this article written by Amanda Lee Myers of The Associated Press that the devils who created the Taser are now in the process of manufactoring a newer and more deadlier version of this "portable electric chair".....Read what this wicked diabolical devil is up to now and beleive me you will be shocked:
TASER COMPANY PLANS SHOCKING SHOTGUN SHELLS
Phoenix - The nation's largest stun-gun manufacturer is working on a new way to deliver electricity to the human body: through 12-gauge shotgun shells.
Though it's still being devolped, Taser International Inc. says the new product would allow police officers and U.S. troops to hit someone from a much greater distance than its current line of Tasers, which Amnesty International has cited in more than 120 deaths.
The eXtended Range Electro-Muscular Projectile, or XREP, would be a shotgun shell designed to combine the blunt-force trauma of a fast-moving baseball with the electrical current of a stun-gun.
"It will truly cause incapacitation," company spokesman Steve Tuttle said.
Taser hopes to release the product in 2007. The Office of Naval Research funded the approximately $500,000 it took to develop the shot-gun shells, Tuttle said.
Tasers shoot two darts that deliver 50,000-volts to the human body using a special electrical wave form that overwhelms the nervous system and temporarily paralyzes people.
But the weapons, considered by the company reach 100 feet, though the military has challenged the company to extend the range to 330 feet, the company said.
"It's going to give you a pretty good thump when it hits," said Taser president Tom Smith, "but our design goal is to make it safe even at the muzzle."
When deployed, a round would hit a target, latch on and deliver an incapacitating jolt of electricity. Smith said company engineers were still working on how the shell would latch on to suspects - but noted that the shells would have the same incapacitating effect as traditional Tasers because they would use the same electrical wave form.
By contrast, the Taser XREP shotgun shell would be considered a higher-level use of force because of the physical impact of the shells.
Already, the product is drawing criticism from human rights organizations, who have accused law-enforcement agencies of using the existing Tasers when more humane options are available. Amnesty International has called for independant studies on their safety.
"Amnesty's concern with this product would be similiar to those with Tasers," said spokesperson Edward Jackson. "Where is the independant comprehensive medical testing? In the absence of that testing, we run the risk of turning private citizens into guinea pigs."
According to Amnesty International's count, more than 120 people shocked with a Taser have died shortly afterward in the United States and Canada.
Taser denies that its products are solely to blame in any deaths, arguing that drugs, health conditions or other factors - not the electrical shock - have been the cause.
The company also contends Tasers have saved the lives of thousands of suspects who might otherwise have been shot by police.
The story from The Associated Press ends here. Now a few comments from General Nikki X:
"What kind bullshit is Taser International Inc. trying to pull this trip?!?" I mean seriously, how freakin' dumb do these people think the public at large really is? If you have 50,000 volts killing folks primarily BLACK folks right now then how the hell can they expect Amnesty International, several different Human Rights Organizations and The Black Fist Organization to beleive this new "toy" called XREP that cost a cool quarter of a million dollars and expected to deliver an extremely higher voltage is any safer than the original?
The bottom line is It's NOT!
According to Amnesty Internationals reports, there have been more than 120 Taser related deaths in The U.S. and Canada since 2001, the numbers look like this:
3 deaths in 2001, 13 deaths in 2002, 20 deaths in 2003 and 53 deaths in 2004! (source: Amnesty International)
So I say to you once again-- The Black Fist Organization is calling for a complete ban on these deadly "portable electric chairs" by the Cincinnati Police Department until further studies are done and we have proof of its safety.
We understand, based on historical fact, that anytime the Cincinnati Police Dept. uses force on black people it is 9 out of 10 times deadly force. Since 1804 these slave catchers - turn -watchmen - turn - Cincinnati Police officers beleive in killing our people unjustifiably! And the members of this Organization beleive in exposing them at every turn!
We have called for a Moratorium On Police Brutality. (see blog entry: The Black Fist Moratorium On Police Brutality to read our demands based on the overwhelming number of police brutality cases and deaths, mainly on black folks in this city)
The Black Fist will not rest until these deadly "portable electric chairs" are out of the hands of these rogue police officers and out of existance. PERIOD. And apparently Amnesty International agrees with us.
Police brutality must end! Black people must stand up, speak out and against the use of these deadly portable electric chairs!!!
Cincinnati City Council voted that children between the ages of 7 and 11 years old can be tased in the City of Cincinnati. Now apply that already sick and twisted logic to this newest and more deadly form of Taser, the XREP and you asking , no begging the man to kill your babies! What are we gonna be Mr. and Mrs. so-called American knee-grow? Are you gonna be strong black men and strong black women in the memory and mode of Dr. Khallid Abdul Muhammad, Bro. Min. Malcolm X, Nat Turner, Harriet Tubman, The Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey and others of like mind and stand up and fight for your lives and the lives of your black children -OR- Will you be international crybabies and just sit around calling talk radio all day & half the night crying when these newest Tasers hit the streets of Cincinnati in 2007 or beyond and THE PUNK PIG DEPT. flat out & out start slaughtering you and your children???
And black woman don't think you are safe. General Nikki X also wrote an article a couple of years ago called "The Black Woman is Next!" (sometime soon I will publish that particular article right here on this blog)
I said that to say Black Women are and will continue to be brutalized and tased by this punk pig dept. so we might as well wake up and realize we must stand up and with our Black Men to protect the lives of the Black Family and the Black Nation!
The time is NOW -not- Tomorrow!
HELL MR. & MRS. KNEE-GROW YOU'VE GOT A YEAR OR 2 TO THINK ABOUT IT AND GET YOUR COURAGE UP TO FIGHT BACK.....THINK LONG - THINK WRONG!
GENERAL NIKKI X LOVES HER BEAUTIFUL BLACK NATION AND SHE DOES NOT WANT TO SEE THEM DESTROYED FOR A LACK OF KNOWLEDGE!!!
More Facts on the widespread use of the Taser:
Taser International has been selling its stun-gun weapons to law enforcement agencies since 1998. Today, more than 175,000 Tasers are being used by more than 8,500 agencies in the United States. More than 100,000 of the devices have been sold to private U.S. citizens, and U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq also use them.

|THE WARRIOR: EL-HAJJ MALIK EL-SHABAZZ MINISTER MALCOLM X|
Today is the 41st anniversary of the death of our dear beloved brother Minister Malcolm X. As spokesperson for The Black Fist, General Nikki X would like to pay tribute to our great Black Strong Shining Prince, cut down in a vicious hail of bullets on February 21,1965. in New York.
His life and his legacy will continue as long as we never forget to remember the man who loved us black people so much he put his very life on the line.
Let's take a look at the life of El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, The man we know and love as Bro. Minister Malcolm X:
Malcolm X was born Malcolm Little on May 19, 1925 in Omaha, Nebraska. His mother, Louise Norton Little, was a homemaker occupied with the family's 8 children. His father, Earl Little, was an outspoken Baptist minister and avid supporter of Black Nationalist leader Marcus Garvey. Earl's civil rights activism prompted death threats from the white supremacist organization Black Legion, forcing the family to relocate twice before Malcolm's 4th birthday. Regardless of the Little's efforts to elude the legion, in 1929 their Lansing, Michigan home was burned to the ground and 2 years later Earl's mutilated body was found lying across the town's trolley tracks. Police ruled both accidents, but the Little's were certain that members of the Black Legion were responsible. Louise had an emotional breakdown several years later after the death of her husband and was committed to a mental institution. Her children were split up amongst various foster homes and orphanages.
Malcolm was a smart, focused student and graduated from junior high at the top of his class. However, when a favorite teacher told Malcolm his dream of becoming a lawyer was "no realistic goal for a nigger," Malcolm lost interest in school. He dropped out, spent some time in Boston Massachusettes working various jobs, and then moved to Harlem, New York where committed petty crimes. By 1942 Malcolm was coordinating various narcotic, prostitution and gambling rings.
Eventually Malcolm and his buddy Malcolm "Shorty" Jarvis, moved back to Boston, where they were arrested and convicted on burglary charges in 1946. Malcolm placated himself by using the 7 year prison sentence to further his education. It was during this period of self-enlightenment that Malcolm's brother Reginald visited and discussed his recent conversion to the Muslim religious organization the Nation of Islam. Intrigued, Malcolm studied the teachings of the Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad. Muhammad taught that white society actively worked to keep Blacks from empowering themselves and achieving political, economic and social success. Among other goals, the Nation of Islam fought for a state of their own, separate from one inhabited by white people. By the time he was paroled in 1952, Malcolm was a devoted follower with the new surname "X". He considered "Little" a slave name and chose the "X" to signify his lost tribal name.
Intelligent and articulate, Malcolm was appointed a minister and national spokesperson for the Nation of Islam. Elijah Muhammad also charged him with establishing new mosques in cities such as Detroit, Michigan and Harlem, New York. Malcolm utilized newspaper columns, radio and television to communicate the Nation of Islam's message across the United States. His charisma, drive and conviction attracted an astounding number of new members. Malcolm was largely credited with increasing membership in the Nation of Islam from 500 in 1952 to 30,000 in 1963.
The crowds and controversy surrounding Malcolm made him a media magnet. He was featured in a week-long television special with Mike Wallance in 1959, The Hate That Hate Produced, that explored fundamentals of the Nation of Islam and Malcolm's emergence as one of its most important leaders. After the special, Malcolm was faced with the uncomfortable reality that his fame had ecliped that of his mentor Elijah Muhammad.
Racial tensions ran increasingly high during the early 1960s. In addition to the media, Malcolm's vivid personality had captured the government's attention. As membership in the Nation of Islam continued to grow, FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) agents infilrated the organization (one even acted as Malcolm's bodyguard) and secretly placed bugs, wiretaps and cameras surveillance equiptment to monitor the group's activities.
Malcolm's faith was dealt a crushing blow at the height of the civil rights movement in 1963. He learned that Elijah Muhammad was secretly having relations with as many as 6 women in the Nation of Islam, some of which had resulted in children. Since his conversion Malcolm had adhered to the teachings of Muhammad, including remaining celibate until his marriage to Betty Shabazz in 1958. Malcolm refused Muhammad's request to keep the matter quiet. He was deeply hurt by the deception of Muhammad, whom he had considered a prophet, and felt guilty about the masses he had lead into what he now felt was a fraudulent organization.
When Malcolm received criticism after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy for saying, ""[Kennedy]" never forsaw that the chickens would come home to roost so soon," Muhammad "silenced" him for 90 days. Malcolm suspected he was silenced for another reason. In March 1964 he terminated his relationship with the Nation of Islam and founded the Muslim Mosque, Inc.
That same year, Malcolm went on a pligrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia. The trip proved life altering, as Malcolm met "blonde-haired, blue-eyed men I could call my brothers." He returned to the United States with a new outlook on intergration. This time, instead of just preaching to Blacks, he had a message for all races.
Relations between Malcolm and the Nation of Islam had become volatile after he renounced Elijah Muhammad. Informants working in the Nation of Islam warned that Malcolm had been marked for assassination (one man had even been ordered to help plant a bomb in his car). After repeated attempts on his life, Malcolm rarely traveled anywhere without bodyguards. On February 14, 1965 the home where Malcolm, Betty and their 4 daughters lived in East Elmhurst, New York was firebombed (the family escaped physical injury).
At a speaking engagment in Manhattan's Audubon Ballroom on February 21, 1965. 3 gunmen rushed Malcolm onstage and shot him 15 times at close range. The 39 year old was pronounced dead on arrival at New York's Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. 1500 people attended Malcolm's funeral in Harlem at Faith Temple Church of God in Christ on February 27, 1965. After the ceremony, friends took shovels from the gravediggers and buried Malcolm themselves. Later that year, Betty gave birth to their twin daughters.
Malcolm's assassins, Taladge Hayer, Norman 3X Butler and Thomas 15X Johnson were convicted of first-degree murder in March 1966. The 3 men were all members of the Nation of Islam.
The legacy of Malcolm X has moved through generations as the subject of numerous documentaries, books and movies. A tremendous resurgence of interest occurred in 1992 when director Spike Lee released the acclaimed Malcolm X movie. The film received Oscar nominations for Best Actor (Denzel Washinton) and Best Costume Design.
Malcolm X is buried at the Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale. New York.
(That biography is released exclusively by The Estate of Malcolm X)
The Black Fist honor the memory of our dear brother El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz Malcolm X for the strong warrior that he was and the fearless leader of black people he will continue to be.
We must always never forget to remember what those black devils took away from us when they took our beloved brother on that fateful wicked day, exactly 41 years ago today!
Malcolm X was a strong, proud, Black man who stood on his own in the face of racism and adversity. He didn't hide, he didn't run. He stood up in a time when the white man and his imps would've and could've killed a black person on sight without reason and without fear of prison.
ON THIS DAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2006. WE, THE MEMBERS OF "THE BLACK FIST" HONOR, REMEMBER AND PAY OUR TRIBUTE AND RESPECT TO OUR SHINING BLACK PRINCE...EL-HAJJ MALIK EL-SHABAZZ, BROTHER MINISTER MALCOLM X!
Malcolm X 1925-1965
A Militant Warrior, A Fearless Soldier, A Beautiful Black Man

MALCOLM X: A TRIBUTE TO A WARRIOR
On this day February 21, 1965. A Great Warrior, Strong Soldier, Dynamic Orator and True Defender of the Black Nation was Murdered, Taken away from us in a hail of bullets.
Bro. Min. Malcolm X was not just a black man repeating the words of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, he actually lived and breathed the words of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad. He stood up for black people at a time when it could've been "off with his head" at the hands of the white man for even thinking of himself as a man.
Bro. Minister deserves to be honored and remembered on the day of his birth as well as the day of his untimely death and that's what we here on The Black Fist Blog are going to do. As with Bro. Min. Dr. Khaild Abdul Muhammad, my time is limited this morning but believe me we are going to come back later on today and delve into the life of this beautiful strong black prince on the 41st anniversary of his death....
Yes it's been 41 long years since our dearly beloved brotha was so brutally taken from us but today we are going to remember the life and complete dedication of...Minister Malcolm X!
Stay tuned and check black with me later on today...

THE JOINT FOR A JOINT?
I want to publish what was written in The Cincinnati Post about Cincinnati City Councilman Cecil Thomas (R) and his latest greatest idea coming out of his Law & Public Safety Committee. This is the first of two be in 2 parts each with commentary regarding this warmed over from the lame-brained David Pepper, ex-Law & Public Safety Committee Chairman era.
Here goes nothing.....
The Cincinnati Post Post Staff Reporter Tony Cook: Thomas sees stiffer penalties for pot offenses good for city
Cincinnati City Councilman Cecil Thomas plans to propose tougher penalties for marijuana possession - a move that could re-ignite a debate that stalled a similiar proposal last summer.
Thomas, chairman of Council's Law and Public Safety Committee, said stiffening the punishment would give police more tools to combat the city's drug problem and bring Cincinnati's code in line with neighboring Indiana and Kentucky, where penalties are much more stringent.
His proposed municipal code change would make marijuana possession a fourth-degree misdemeanor, which carries a maximum sentence of 30 days in jail and a $250 fine. Right now possession of less than a 100 grams of marijuana is a minor misdemeanor under state law, meaning officers can write only a $100 citation.
In Kentucky, possessing marijuana carries a maximum sentence of at least a year in jail and a $500 fine, said Jim Liles, executive director of the Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force.
"I know that drug dealers are thoughtful about different things," Liles said. "I know they are familiar with some aspects of the law."
Thomas said a drug enforcement officer in Over-The-Rhine recently cited a woman from Kentucky for possession and asked her why she came to Cincinnati for drugs. She said, "Are you crazy? You go to jail over there."
The Post story ends here.
All I will say for now is, "Is Cecil Losing It Again?" What makes Cecil think this is gonna work? Shouldn't he be more concerned with the skyrocketing out of control murder rate in this city? Maybe even the crack cocaine and meth that is flowing through these streets? All these devilish guns in the hands of our youth, shouldn't he be focusing on that maybe? But nnnooooo, people smoking some wood puts this city in a state of emergency, hear him talk about it!
I've said it before and I'll say it again Cecil Thomas is doing his best to appease and placate the west side of town and putting stupid asinine motions like this one on the floor of council shows just how out of touch he is with what's really going on when it pertains to crime on these streets. I mean what do we have here folks a Dumb David Pepper Redux?
This shit will never work with the overcrowding of the justice center and people making claims they got let out early cause they didn't have a bed to sleep in. Now this ex-cop turned councilman proposes to thow folks in the joint for a joint.
I told you this in the last blog entry when I had to write about your foolishness Cecil, well it likes I'm force to tell you again: "Cecil Thomas get it together baby and get it together fast!" "Get your dag-gone head together man and use that office and that committee to really fight some crime and stop making silly ass proposals that you know won't make a damn bit of different!"
The Black Fist intends to monitor this "proposal" very carefully!
Look for Part Two... Coming Soon
(See blog entry: "Councilman -OR- Cop" to read more about the flat out foolishness of Screamin' Cecil Thomas)

|"LIFE IS SWEET!"|
We should always be thankful for our many many blessings. As Black people living here in the Hells of North America we certain have plenty to fight against and be on high alert for. But there are so many beautiful glorious days the Creator Most High has blessed us with we need to talk about that too.
This entry is about "Your Blessings". What are you thankful for? What is it that you feel blessed about? How are you blessed? What positive contributions do you give back to the black community for which you live to show the community just how blessed you feel?
I'm blessed to have family, friends, associates, my career and my life's work. I'm blessed to be young, alive and healthy. I'm also blessed to have a beautiful strong black conscience-oriented son who will soon be going off to pursue a masters degree in college! I'm also blessed to have been born at a time when Legalized American Slavery has been abolished! Oh yes any one of us black people living today in America could've been born a slave. And if we think it's hell on earth right here in Cincinnati, Ohio, United States of America today-- think about what our ancestors endured from the period of 1619-1863 then on through Jim Crow, lynchings and so forth.
So we'd like to hear your comments on this topic. We want to hear about your blessings.
Hit Us Up and Let's Talk About It!
BLACK FIST, BLACK POWER, BLACK NATION!!!
FORMER CINCINNATI CITY COUNCILMAN FOUND NOT GUILTY!
Former Cincinnati City Councilman Sam Malone (R) found himself in a Hamilton County Courtroom this week awaiting a verdict on the charges of domestic violence against his 14-year old son back in May 2005. See this: http://theblackfistblog.blogspot.com/2006/01/former-cincinnati-city-councilman-sam.html
The verdict came back not guilty! And I for one think that is the only verdict that should've come back. Sam Malone should've never been on trial in the first place. He did what any good responsible loving father should've done when his child disobeyed him or any other adult, he grabbed a belt and whooped his tail!
Now you can read about what went down in the link provided above. What I want to talk about in this entry is the Judge in this case, a judge by the name of "Mocking" Russell Mock. Now from what I've read in the newspaper and from what I've seen on television, it seems to me that Judge Mock thought Mr. Malone should've been found guilty. His comment from on high (that's the bench, of course) seems to suggest a bit a white supremacy, an air of authority beyond the boundaries of the court bench, a personal opinionated bias and a mocking tone of voice that was, in my opinion, highly unprofessional and quite condesending.
This white man from on high, "Mocking" Judge Mock said something that went like: I have to go along with this verdict although I don't agree with it and the next time you, Mr. Malone should re-think your use of the belt in disciplining your son. That was not word for word but you get the jest of what he was trying to convey. Allow me to break it down for you:
"The white man felt he had the white authority to tell the black man, the original man what to do!"
I really think some of these white judges that sit down there on these benches in these Hamilton County courtrooms think have been ordained for that position by God. I really beleive Jugde Mock was totally out of order "lecturing" Sam Malone like he was some kind of child and the big white father (him) MUST re-direct his big bad black behavior. In the words of our dear brother Nate Livingston over at The Cincinnati Black Blog "Who gives a fuck about what Judge Mock thinks!"
I'm happy Sam Malone was found not guilty, I'm happy he may be reuniting with his boy and able to finish raising this young man to be a productive strong black man and I'm happy all of this judicial crap is over and done with. Now the question becomes: Will Sam be able to overcome the court of public opinion? Will he attempt to run again for City Council as a republican after the republican triple-crossed the brother? And will his son learn a lesson in obedience and respect for his elders?
And does this young boy truly understand 421-KIDS is not a game to be played with? Meaning that once these people get in your business (especially if you are black) it's hard to get them out of your business! I've heard horror stories about 421-KIDS that I won't get into today and I'm sure for every 1 or 2 horror stories, there's 11 or 12 good stories of children being rescued from abuse and neglect through that organization. I want to be fair. But looking at this through the black perpective as we do here on The Black Fist Blog I've got to keep it real and say this organization needs to be monitored more closely and black families need to do there best to keep them out of your business and Lawd have mercy out of your homes! Black children are not white children, we (black parents) have a history of taking the rod to a little black behind and warming it up as needed. White parents allow their children to take the rod to them and that's why you get your school shooting, drugs, illegal phony money being printed right under your noses in your big fancy houses, your little white girls "chatting" it up in these internet chat room meeting lecherious pedophiles and serial killers. Whites turn their children over to others for disciplinary actions where as Black families deal with our little hard-heads in the crib at the home and with the belt!
Just as Sam Malone did with his son. Congratulations Sam and good Luck to you and your family!
And that's (pardon the pun) The Bottom Line!

|NO CHARGES FILE: POLICE OFFICER GETS AWAY WITH MURDER...AGAIN!|
The Justice department will not file civil rights charges against the white Cincinnati Police officer who started the chain of events that started the 2001 unrest (some people may call it a "riot", I do not, in my opinion a "riot" is when black folks leave dead white folks bleeding in the streets).
Ex-Cincinnati Police officer and current Evendale Police officer Stephen Roach will not be charged with violating the civil rights of Timothy Thomas, the 19 year old black youth who was fatally shot in a dark alley by Roach on April 4, 2001.
Although the April 2001 shooting was tragic, it occurred in a "fast-moving, inherently dangerous situtation in a dark alley" and there was not enough evidence to prove officer Stephen Roach acted improperly, Assistant Attorney General Wan Kim said.
Roach chased Timothy Thomas into a alley and shot him with no other Cincinnati Police officers around.
The Justice Department said inconsistencies in statements made by Roach were insufficient to pursue charges.
In the opinion of General Nikki X and The Black Fist who protested everyday of the Roach trial, spoke out on television, newspaper, radio and at City Hall about this heinous back alley murder and no-good Roach's kangaroo court trial this decision by the Justice Department is absolute BULLSHIT!!!!!
But it is to be expected by a racist no-good dirty double dealing government!
And under the administration of this devil named Bush...What else could we have expected to happen to that killer cop Roach? A little something called JUSTICE? Hell No!
The bottom line is: Stephen Roach walks around, enjoys his wife & family, lives, works and breaths freely, while our 19 year old Bro. Timothy Thomas stays dead and cold in the ground! His 4 year old son is forever without a father, his woman forever with her man (at least forever with him) and his Mother, siblings, family & friends are forever with their son, brother and friend.
In the words of our other dearly departed Bro. Louis Armstrong...."What A Wonderful World!"
The Boycott, The Protest and The Fight Against Police Brutality Continues.....
Don't Beleive The Hype! As a Spokesperson for The Black Fist, We have stated in the past and we will continue to say in the future, "Until black people in this city receive JUSTICE there will be no PEACE!
No Justice, No Profit Keep Your Money In Your Pockets!!!
(See Black Fist Blog entry: "No Justice, No Profit" for more information on the ongoing boycott and sanctions on travel and tourism on the City of Cincinnati. General Nikki X can say she has NEVER broken the boycott and NEVER will. Don't beleive the hype and rhetoric of some who claim to be members of this organization WHO ARE NOT AND NEVER HAVE BEEN! They make stupid comments about supporting the boycott but when The Black Fist was active in the protesting, speaking out at City Hall and shouting down of killer cops like Stephen Roach to his face, they were steadily breaking the boycott, blasting The Black Fist for its efforts and calling talk radio everyday tearing apart anyone who was standing firm on the beliefs and positions of the boycott including the man who they are running around with today. Audio of these claims can be made available. General Nikki X is not known to lie to the black community and or "re-invent Black Fist history" to make myself look good in the movement in an effort to TRICK folks into beleiving I'm something I'm not. The Record, Reputation and Hard-Core Guerilla-ism of General Nikki X stands for itself. I'm quite sure others who have suddenly "latched" onto the philosphies and opinions of The Black Fist wish they could say the same.)

|NBC'S "LAW & ORDER" STAR SET TO PORTRAY THE LATE GREAT MARVIN GAYE ON THE BIG SCREEN|
Finally, a feature film about the life of Marvin Gaye has been given the green light. Jesse L. Martin, star of NBC's " Law & Order" and the feature film "Rent", will portray Motown's finest in the independently-financed film "Sexual Healing."
The movie, to be directed by Lauren Goodman from her own script, will focus on the years preceding his sudden shooting death at the hands of his father on April 1, 1984, one day before his 45th birthday. The film will include his self-imposed exile in Europe after years of battling drugs, domestic issues and label headaches. There, he was rescued by a promoter who helped Gaye record his biggest-selling album, "Midnight Love," supported by his comeback smash, "Sexual Healing."
"More than just being the voice of a generation, Marvin Gaye proved to be its very heartbeat," Goodman told the Hollywood Reporter. "As a filmmaker, I was drawn to tell the story of a human being who was never fully realized, one with faults and foibles and an uncommon grace expressed every time he picked up the microphone."
According to the Hollywood Reporter, producers have been trying to get a Marvin Gaye biopic off the ground. Originally, "Sexual healing" was intended to cover a larger portion of his life but refocused on his final years because of rights issues with his Motown-produced records.
You can read more about Marvin Gaye and his upcoming Bipoic at www.blackamericaweb.com click on Entertainment
Now A Few Comments From General Nikki X:
Wow, that's very interesting and I for one can't wait to see that movie. I wonder (as I'm so prone to do) why Motown wouldn't be the ones to put this type of picture together from start to end? Then they could start from the time of Mr. Gaye's birth in April 1944 until his death in April 1984. Then there would be no issues regarding the rights to his music on the Motown label.
Why can't black folks do like white folks do when it comes to upholding our greatest, our brightest and our shining stars? It couldn't be financing cause like my boy rapper Too Short would say, "There's money in the ghetto"! So why does it always take a white person or so-called Jewish person to tell our story?
Can anyone out there name just how many DIFFERENT Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, John F. Kennedy and Amy Fisher movies are out there? Too many to name, the point is they GET MADE!
Black people who are in that kind of financial position should step up to the plate and do the same regarding our entertainers cause there's always some black person to ready to make the next Dr. Martin Luther King Story but we don't see too many black entertainer type movies.
That was not in any way a slight against Dr. King only an example of the fact there are already about a gazillion King movies and probably about a hundred more waiting to be made.
Maybe the white woman's savior of all things possible in the world, The black woman, Oprah Winfrey might find the time to "finance" the next big black biopic...Who knows?
General Nikki X would suggest "The Lena Horne Story"! While the beautiful and elegant Ms. Horne is STILL alive! I mean come on, Ms. Horne will be 90 years old next year!
That's just me.
This Was Another Black Fist Entertainment Report!
"IT MAY NOT ALWAYS BE GOOD NEWS BUT IT'S HOOD NEWS!"
Black Power, Every Hour!
|Should Vice-President Cheney Be Arrested For Attempting To Kill An Elderly Man?|
We've been hearing for about the last couple of days though the media what certainly appears to be another cover-up by the Bush Administration regarding the shooting of 78 year old Texas lawyer and big shot Harry Whittington by Vice-President and apparently lousy aim slick 'n' tricky Dick Cheney. Tricky Dick Cheney was on a quail hunting trip this past Saturday when it was reported his good buddy and fellow quailsman Harry Whittington fell victim to slick Dick's lousy shooting skills. The Vice-President shot his hunting buddy full of hot pellets when he (as it is alleged) walked up on slick Dick while hunting for quail. Ol' Dick (supposely) was startled and thought his long-time hunting buddy was a big fat juicy quail and lit him up!
This cover-up happened on Saturday but was not reported to the public or the President (yeh, uh-huh) until late Sunday. Why it that? Could it be that slick 'n' tricky Dick did not want the American public to know he was out in the deep wilderness and plotted to quietly try murder his friend? Why would the Vice-President want to murder his friend General X? I have no idea, I wasn't there. I'm just raising the questions. But what I would like to know is how "friendly" was Mrs. Lynn Cheney the Vice-Presidents' wife and this here victim Harry Whittington. (???) I mean stranger things have happened in Washington, DC you know. Was there some sort of "special friendship" between Mrs. Cheney and ol' Harry Whittington that the Vice President didn't know about? Then found out about and played the role till he could get ol' Harry "alone"? Jealousy is a strange and twisted emotion. Wouldn't you agree?
And now we find out that slick Dick's pellets lit this man up so fierce that he's had a dag-gone heart attack! My God Dick?!? What in the devil were you trying to do man?!? And you refused to give a public account as to what really happen on that faithful hunting trip. Only after it leaked into the media and the jokes and rumors were flying did you give a little statement written by a staff writer.
You really ought to be ashame of yourself Dick! You of all people should know what it's like to have a bad ticker! And now you must live with the fact you caused ol' Harry's ticker to go awry! And what if he dies? Will the American public cry out for the vice president's head on a platter? Will there be an arrest, a trial, a conviction?
First the Hailliburton Scandal in Iraq and now what could be construed as attempted murder on your ol' hunting buddy! My God, what's next Dick & George? What's next?!?
Here's a little of what was reported about this tragic cover-up on Black America Web:
Hunter shot by Cheney has heart attack

Corpus Christi, Texas (AP) - The 78-year-old lawyer wounded by Vice President Dick Cheney in a hunting accident suffered a mild heart attack Tuesday after a shotgun pellet in his chest traveled to his heart, hospital officials said.
Harry Whittington was immediately moved back to the intensive care unit and will be watched for a week to make sure more of the metal pellets do not reach other vital organs. He was reported in stable conditions.
Whittington suffered a "silent heart attack"-- obstructed blood flow, but without the classic heart-attack symptoms of pain and pressure, according to doctors at Christi Spohn Hospital Corpus Christi-Memorial.
The doctors said they decided to treat the situtation consevatively and leave the pellet alone rather than operate to remove it. They said they are highly optimistic Whittington will recover and live a healthy life with the pellets in him.
Asked whether the pellet could move farther into his heart and become fatal, hospital officials said that was a hypothetical question they could not answer.
Hospital officials said they were not concerned about the six to 200 other pieces of birdshot that might be lodged in Whittington's body. Cheney was using 7 1/2 shot from a 28-gauge shotgun. Shotgun pellets are typically made of steel or lead; the pellets in 7 1/2 shot are just under a tenth of an inch in diameter.
Cheney watched the news conference where doctors described Whittington's complications. Then the vice president called him, wished him well and asked if there was anything that he needed.
"The vice president said that he stood ready to assist. Mr. Whittington's spirits were good, but obviously his situtation deserves the careful monitoring that his doctors are providing," the vice president's office said in a statement.

The jokes and the comedy about this fisaco keep-a-comin'. Has anyone seen The Jay Leno Show for about the last couple of days? He's been ripping a hole in Dick Cheney's a@# and we've been laughing our heads off every night! One joke from Leno went something like: "I think Dick Cheney is starting to lose it," Jay Leno said. "After he shot the guy he screamed, Anyone else want to call domestic wiretapping illegal?!"
The New York Times had a big bold headline that said: DUCK IT"S DICK!
On this blog we want to hear from you, what do you think should be the punishment for the vice president should be if any? Why cover it up if it was just an "accident"? Could there have been a little "hanky-panky" going on between the Mrs. & Whittington? Did ol' man Cheney find out about it on the "low-low" and decide to "deal" with his competition in the woods?
All questions are raised by tax-paying citizens who don't appreciate their hard-earned tax dollars paying for this kind of B.S. along with a deep dislike for the weak simple-minded antics of the Bush Administration and their continual attempts to cover-up that administrations human rights violations (Hurricane Katrina) and extensive criminal wrongdoings!!!
So many so that it would take another 8 years to mention here...
I gave my thoughts and opinions, what are yours?
THIS WAS ANOTHER STATE OF THE BLACK NATION-- BLACK FIST SPECIAL REPORT!
