QUIT BITCHING ABOUT SNITCHING!
Believe me this post right here won't be long at all. There's a campaign to get black folks and others to snitch on each other in this country. Black folks are all we are dealing with here on this site. And it's not complicated at all.
When Cincinnati Police Officers start snitching on one another when they know a "fellow officer" has unjustifiably murdered an unarmed black person then maybe just maybe black people will start to do the same.
Break down that "blue wall of silence" Cincinnati police officers and expose low-down dirty rotten rogue police that out here on the streets of Cincinnati brutalizing, terrorizing and profiling black people. Show us how it's done. You be the first examples. You "fine officers," men and women in blue stop protecting and lying under oath to save the blue skin of your co-workers and step on up to the plate in the name of justice, equality and fairness.
Until then quit bitching about snitching! And I'll keep wearing my "Stop Snitching" t-shirts!
Remember-- This is AmeriKKKa right?
I thought so,

|VH-1 SAVES THE MUSIC|
I found this story hopeful and refreshing. This come straight from The Cincinnati Post online newspaper, Post staff report:
Officials from Time-Warner Cable and cable channel VH1 will be at Robert Paideria Academy in Price Hill today to present Cincinnati Public Schools with a check for $300,000 for new music equiptment.
The program is part of VH1's Save the Music Foundation, which donates instruments and equiptment to schools lacking them.
Many schools in times of budget crunching consider music programs non-essential.
The event begins at the school at 1700 Grand Ave. at 10:30. Guest will include U.S. Congressman John Boehner. CPS Superintendent Rosa Blackwell and representatives from Time-Warner and VH1 also will be on hand.
The equiptment will go to 12 schools in CPS. The program began in 1999.
--Story ends here--
I think that's great. As a singer myself from the age of 7, who sang throughout my school years then traveled to Los Angeles, California and Chicago, Illinois to sing and perform, I can surely appreciate the world of Fine Arts. And music is fundamental to the growth and development of a young persons' life. As well as a young persons' self-esteem and view of his or her self-worth and the world around them.
My hope is that black children -via- their particular schools find some of those VH1 dollars and continue on the path of music, theatrical performing, the learning of various instruments, writing music and the wide open world of the Fine Arts itself.
Whenever I find a story such as this one I am compelled to bring it to you for music and the creation of sound is ingrained in my blood and it is what keeps me going from day to day.
General Nikki X thanks VH1 for continuing to "Save the Music!"

|CITY COUNCIL TO OK OWENSBY SETLLEMENT: GHIZ WHINING AS USUAL|
The proposed $6.5 million settlement between the City of Cincinnati and the family of Roger Owensby Jr. who, in the opinion of The Black Fist and the Black community was murdered while in police custody will be approved by Cincinnati City Council on March 29, 2006.
As reported in the devil's online newspaper The Cincinnati Enquirer, the settlement would send $4 million to the Owensby family and $2 million to the Owensby's attorneys.
Republican Cincinnati City Council woman Leslie Ghiz said, "Yeah, I'll vote for it, the attorneys fees are outrageous. They're fleecing the city."
"Fleecing the city?"
What a typical response from a one, Leslie Ghiz. No, Leslie, the only peple who have been "fleecing" the city is ex-mayor & political failure Charles "Charlie" John Luken, ex-Cincinnati City manager & Condaleeza Rice clone, Valerie A. Lemmie and Cincinnati City Solicitor Julia LaRita McNeil! Those three people have blocked, held up, stalled and fought like the (pardon the pun) devil in this case in the name of protecting their most precious employees, The Cincinnati Police Department. Whereas it has taken all of damn near 6 years and a couple of days before a now called-off Federal Court Trial to be resolved.
And in the opinion of The Black Fist and the Black community resolution could only have been attained by murdering police officers Jorg and Caton imprisoned for life. And all that were involved, 7 other accomplicing police officers and the police officers involved from the City of Gulf Manor in prison along with them!
Leslie Ghiz, Republican Council woman just ought to be glad that $6.5 million is ALL the city of Cincinnati will pay out for this heinous evil wicked murder instead of whining, crying and (nasal-toning, uuuggghhh, I can hear her voice in my head) bitching in the media about anything! OK Leslie?
Gulf Manor Police were also sued (its police officers accused of failing to give adequate medical care), but reached a separate $1 million settlement.
(See Blog entry: http://theblackfistblog.blogspot.com/2006/03/6.html $6.5 MILLION SETTLEMENT REACHED: OWENSBY SR. SAYS, "HE FEARED ANOTHER RIOT." For the full story regarding The Owensby settlement.)
The YES votes from Cincinnati City Council members to approve this $6.5 million settlement are as followed: Jeff Berding, Chris Bortz, Y. Laketa Cole, John Cranley, Leslie Ghiz, Jim Tarbell and Cecil Thomas.
The UNDECIDED vote is: Chris Monzel.
Cincinnati City Council member David Crowley could not be reached.

EMPEROR OF ETHIOPIA: HAILE SELASSIE I
Welcome, Welcome, Welcome back! To the twelfth installment of The Black Fist: Best & Brightest Everyday Black History Series. In this installment we will be visiting the life, reign and death of one of the greatest emperors Ethiopia has ever been graced with, Emperor Haile Selassie I.
This biography is a lengthy one but I will attempt to shorten it for the sake of time and space but it by not means take away from the brilliance and stature of this bold conqueror.
General Nikki X will dedicate this particular installment to a bold black warrior in his own right and a member of this organization doing excellent work and showing all of us everyday what it truly means to be a courageously strong Black man secure within himself without ego, and without arrogance. A man of few words but long on action when dealing with the devil to his face. This is dedicated to Bro. General Malik X of The Black Fist.
General Nikki X likes to call this one, "Emperor of Ethiopia."
HAILE SELASSIE I (1892-1975)
The name "Haile Selassie I" is Amharic for "Power of Trinity," and some say it suited Emperor Haile Selassie I to a tee. Emperor Haile Selassie I, was Emperor from 1930-1974. He is the religious symbol for God incarnate among the Rastafari movement.
Haile Selassie I was born Tafari Makonnen on July 23, 1892, in the village of Ejersa Goro, in the Harar province of Ethiopia, as Lij (litterally "child", usually bestowed nobility). His father was Ras Makonnen Woldemikael Gudessa, the governor of Harar, and his mother was Woyzero (Lady) Yeshimebet Ali Abajifar. He inherited his inperial blood through his paternal gramdmother, Princess Tenagnework Sahle Selassie, who was an aunt of Emperior Menelik II, and he claimed to be a direct descendant of Makeda, the Queen of Sheba, and King Solomon of ancient Israel. Emperior Haile Selassie I had an elder half-brother, Dejazmach Yilma Makonnen, who proceeded him as governor of Harar, but died not long after taking office.
GOVERNOR OF HARAR
Tafari was given the titular governorship of Sallale, although he did not administer the district directly. In 1907, he was appointed governor over part of the province of Sidamo. Following the death of his brother Dejazmach Yilma, Harar was not successful, and so during the last illness of Menelik II, and the brief tenure in power of Empress Taitu Bitul, Tarari Makonnen was made governor of Harar, and entered the city 11 April 1911. On 3 August of that year, he married Mene Askew of Ambassel, the niece of the heir to the throne, Lij Iyasu.
Although Dejazmach Tafari played only a minor role in the movement that deposed Lij Iyasu on 27 September 1916, he was its ultimate beneficiary. The primary power behind the move were the conservatives led by Fitawrari Hapte Giorgis Dinagde, Menelik II's longtime war minister. However, Iyasu's increasing flirtation with Islam, his disrespectful attitude to the nobles of his grandfather Menelik II, as well as his scandalous behavior in general, not only outraged the conservative power-brokers of the Empire, but alienated the progressive elements as well. This led to the deposition of Isyasi on grounds of conversion to Islam, and the proclamation of Menelik II's daughter (Iyasu's aunt) as Empress Zauditu. Dejazmatch Tafari Makonnen was elevated to the rank of Ras, made heir apparent. In power arrangement that followed, Tafari accepted the role of Regent (Inderase), and became the de facto ruler of the Ethiopian Empire.
As Regent, the new Crown Prince developed the policy of careful modernisation initiated by Menelik II, securing Ethiopia's admission to the League of Nations in 1923, abolishing slavery in the empire in 1924. He engaged in a tour of Europe that same year , inspecting schools, hospitals, factories, and churches; this left such as impression on the future emperior that he devoted over forty pages of his autobiography to the details of his European journey.
War: Then came war following the Italian invasion of 1936 from its colonies in Eritrea and Somalia, Emperior Haile Selassi I made an attempt at fighting back the invaders personally.
Exile: Emperior Haile Selassie I spent his five years in Exile (1936-1941) mainly in Bath, United Kingdom, in a dwelling he had purchased, "Fairfield House". Following his return to Ethiopia, he donated it to the city of Bath as a residence for the aged, and it remains so to this day. There are numerous accounts of 'Haile Selassi I was my next door neighbour' amongst people who were children in the Bath area during his residence. The Emperior also spent extended periods in Jerusalem.
1940's and 1950's
Haile Selassi I returned to Ethiopia in 1941, after Italy's defeat in Ethiopia by United Kingdom and Ethiopian patriot forces. After the war, Ethopia became a charter member of the United Nations (UN). In 1951, after a lengthy fact-finding inquiry by allied powers and then the UN, the former Italian colony of Eritrea was federated to Ethiopia as a compromise between the sizable factions that wanted complete Union with the Empire, and those who wanted complete independence from it.
On December 13, 1960, while the emperor was a state visit to Brazil, his Imperial Guard forces staged an unsuccessful coup attempt, briefly proclaiming Haile Selassi I's eldest son Asfa Wossen as the new Emperor. In 1963 the Emperor presided over the establishment of the Organisation of African Unity with the new organisation setting up its headquarters in Asddis Ababa.
THE DEATH OF HAILE SELASSI I
On August 28, 1975, the state media reported that the "ex-monarch" Haile Selassie I had died on August 27, following complications from a prostate operation. His doctor, Professor Aswat Woldryes denied that complications had occured and rejected the government version of his death. Some believe that he was suffocated in his sleep. Witnesses came forward after the fall of the Marxist government in 1991, to reveal that the Emperor's remains had been buried beneath the president's office. On November 5, 2000 Emperor Haile Selassi I was given an Imperial funeral by the Ethiopian Orthodox church.The current post-communist government refused to give it the status of a state funeral.
Among many followers of the Rastafari movement, which developed in the 1930s in Jamaica under the influence of Marcus Garvey's 'Back to Africa" movement, Haile Selassi I is seen as God incarnate, the Black Messiah who will lead his peoples of Africa and the African diaspora to freedom. His official titles, King of kings, Lord of lords, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah and Root of David, are believed to be the titles of the returned Messiah in the New Testament Book of Revelation.
THE RASTAFARIANS' ATTITUDE TOWARD HAILE SELASSIE I
Many Rastafarians say that they know Haile Selassie I is God, and therefore do not need to believe it. Belief to them implies doubt, and they claim to have no doubts about the divinity. In the early days of the movement, he was seen as a symbol of black pride, and as a king for African people. The first Rastafarian to appear in front of a court was Leonard Howell, who was charged with sedition against the state of Jamaica, and its King George V. Howell declared himself a loyal subject, not of the king of England, but of Haile Selassie I going to plead in front of the League of Nations, and then being rejected by them, confirmed their belief in his greatness. For them, the nations of Babylon, in reference to the ancient biblicial place, turned their back on the returned messiah and the antichrist. The Emperor's restoration to power in 1941 strengthened the rastafarian faith that he was almighty God.
They also called him "Jah Rastafari Selassie I," affectionately Jah Jah. They are very proud of knowing and declaring that he is their God. They were never worried by Halie Selassie never claiming to be God, saying that the real God would never claim to be so just get wordly acclaim and power. They believed that marijuana brings them closer to God, and will always bless the pipes they communally smoke in the name of Haile Selassie I (pronouncing the Roman numeral that indicates "the first" as the word 'I", that being the first person pronoun), thus emphasing the personal relationship they have with the Emperor Haile Selassie I. They believe Haile Selassie I will one day call the judgement, calling the righteous and the faithful to live with him for ever in Holy Mount Zion, said to be placed in Africa.
Some Rastafarians believe that Halie Selassie I is still alive, and that his purported death was part of a conspiracy to discredit their religion. In addition to being a political and historic figure, Haile Selassie I has become a popular culture symbol through the Rastafarian movment. Many Rastas are concerned that the world does not see Haile Selassi in a positive light.
A QUOTE FROM HAILE SELASSIE I
"A house built on granite and strong foundations, not even the onslaught of pouring rain, gushing torrents and strong winds will be able to pull down. Some people have written the story of my life representing as truth what in fact derives from ignorance, error or envy; but cannot shake the truth from its place, even if they attempt to make others believe it." - Preface to My Life and Ethiopia's Progress, Autobiography of H.M. Selassie I (English translation)...
Final Thoughts From General Nikki X as dedicated to General Malik X:
"That until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned: That until there are no longer first-class and second class citizens of any nation; that until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes; That until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race; That until that day, the dream of lasting peace and world citizenship and the rule of international morality will remain but a fleeting illusion, to be pursued but never attained." - English Translation of 1968 Speech delivered to the United Nations, and popularised in a song called War by Bob Marley...
There you have the story of Emperor Haile Selassie I. Let us know what you think and give us your comments. As I stated this was about the longest edition in our everyday black history series but well worth the time of bringing it to you in a limited edition but you can always check out more on The Emperor at your one of the various Black owned and operated bookstores in the city, at the local library or a Black owned and operated bookstore online.

BLACK FIST, BLACK POWER, BLACK NATION!!!
CELBRATING BLACK POWER, EVERY HOUR!!!
Yesterday as I listened to "The Lincoln Ware Show" on WDBZ 1230 am, I couldn't stop laughing when Lincoln's "very special guest" in the studio were none other than Cincinnati Police Chief Tom Streicher and the newest Cincinnati "Police Czar" and sometimes, (when? I don't know when) Cincinnati City Councilman Cecil Thomas. Now the laughter began off the bat when Chief Streicher, one of the biggest negro-hating police chiefs to ever ride the range in good ol' Sinsissippi (yes, folks that's a cross between Cincinnati & Mississippi) came on the air with his #1 boy screamin' Cecil Thomas and announced that together they are currently raising money for (insert drum roll here) The United Negro College Fund!
I laughed my head off! I suppose in the racist thinking of Chief Streicher -- His Cincinnati Police Officers can't kill, maim and/or set up for prison every negro they'd love too. So the ones who actually slip out of our line of bullets & tasers, I'll [Streicher] raise money to send 'em on to college! It's crazy! Only in Sinsissppi, on a "so-called black" talk radio station could a known negro-hating racist like Streicher actually come on the airwaves and with his most sincere humbled voice asked black folks to donate money to him on behalf of this historically known Negro college fund! And without any fuss or REAL questions on his motivation!
Could a white man from say, Nazi Germany go on a "so-called Jewish" radio station and in his most sincere and humbled voice ask that "so-called Jewish" audience to give money to him on behalf of the United Jewish College Fund?
Hell Naw!!! He'd be ran right up outta that station -or- worse!
Police Czar Cecil Thomas didn't surprise me at all by being there alongside Streicher.
Cecil will travel the length of his leash, stop, wait for his next command then sit.
Always the obedient german shepard. Always protecting & serving his master!
They just don't come any better than Cecil!
The only thing funnier than this dymanic duo coming on the radio trying once again to trick black folks into believing "everythangs gonna be alright in the city now," Was the very first and (I think) ONLY person to call-in and donate the first $100 to racist Streicher but ONLY (in the words of the person giving this "gift") "If this money will go to educate ALL people NOT just blacks!" (once again, insert drum roll please)....WDBZ "The buzz" everyday caller and self-proclaimed "Rainbow Push I love everybody especially the white folks," Glen O. Givens!
What more can be said behind that?

|WITH $700 MILLION BANKS DEAL AT STAKE: LOCAL NAACP CRIES "MINORITY" FOUL!|
Here we go again! The City of Cincinnati is once again trying to negotiate a big money making revelopment deal on the banks on the shores of the Ohio River, appropiately called: The Banks Deal. A developer is needed in the construction of this high-profile $700 million economic deal. And once again, in the city of Cincinnati --The Black man is always the last (if at all) to be considered for a big money making economic project such as this one, just ask Bros. Jim Clingman and Ken Price.
This story comes straight off of the devil's online newspaper, "The Cincinnati Enquirer."
MINORITY GROUPS SEEK BANKS INPUT
The high-profile Banks project in downtown Cincinnati doesn't have a developer yet, but several community groups already fear that minority and women owned contractors will be shut out of the work. The Cincinnati chapter of the NAACP and at least 10 other organizations plan a press conference Monday to urge city and county leaders to pay attention to their concerns.
--Online story ends there--
"Minority and Women-owned contractors."
First things first: The word "Minority" is classified as "Anyone other than the white male." And all the white male has to do is marry the white female then she brings the benefits of the "minority" dollar right on home to her white male husband! So the white man wins all the way around, doesn't he?
Yes the hell he does!!!
So the question once again becomes: When in the hell will the Black Man and the Black Woman come into the realization that they are not a damn "minority"?!? Here in the city of Cincinnati, Black people are 50% of the population. We are half of the tangiable tax dollars. But Black folks are still begging the white man and his woman for jobs. Most times often then not they get some damn sub-contracting jobs, "minority" set aside programs and it's always under the terms of "minority"!
Now here comes the NAACP having a press conference (for which they are famous for) I believe the last one was regarding then United Stated Supreme Court Judical nominee Samuel Alito. So that should give you some indication of the priorities of the Cincinnati local chapter of the NAACP. But today the NAACP had a press conference screaming for the big white man downtown to give the negro (once again) a chance to develop the Banks.
When will they realize the city of Cincinnati and the county of Hamilton are 2 of the most racist of all the cities and counties in the state of OHIO.
A few years ago, 2 Black man by the names of Jim Clingman and Ken Price had an excellent developmental plan for redeveloping the Banks (from what I was told) but the big white man downtown basically in a nutshell said, "The hell with you n***** we ain't trying to even see your plans and let you n***** in on $400 million, sheeeeeeiiiiiitttt, y'all can run along on home now boys....'cause ain't nothing happening at white man's big money table today!"
To show you just how brainwashed and asleep the Black man is here in this city. Democratic Party chairman and bonafide super-racist Timothy Burke and his law firm sued the City of Cincinnati on behalf of a white man who said "special programs for negroes" to get contracting jobs were unfair. I'm not lawyer but it something like that.
When then Cincinnati City Councilwoman and chairwoman of the small business and employment committee, the black woman in skin only, Alicia Reece (D) found a little back bone and challenged the way business was being done in Cincinnati.
The end results: The white man [Tim Burke] smacked her down (once again), sued the city and won and Blacks were back to square one!
And the "so-called Cincinnati negro" is still running around screaming and hollering at every election cycle, "I'm gonna vote the straight Democratic ticket!"
Straight uneducated non-thinking brainwashed nonsense!
Will Blacks get to develop the Banks? The Black Fist says NO! Why you may ask are we so 100% sure black folks won't (this time around) get a piece of the action? I'll tell you why...
Because the "so-called america negro in Cincinnati" is still, after all their high paying education, Fine arts degrees and free literature at the public library still calling themselves "Minorities"!
So in the opinion of The Black Fist, Blacks in this town don't even know who they truly are. So how can the white man be faulted for repeatedly spitting in the faces of blacks, I mean "minorities" continuously turning his back on blacks, I mean "minorities" and blantantly in the faces of blacks, I mean "minorities" keep the green dollars within the hands and pockets of white man?
HOW CAN THIS CONTINUE TO HAPPEN IN 2006?
Easy negro! That's how it can happen. With ease and with conscience deliberation.
Start calling yourselves what you are with pride, dignity and head held high then be ready to do face-to-face battle with the devil then maybe just maybe the devil will "agree" to hear your cries!
MR. & MRS. NEGRO "REDEVELOP" YOURSELVES, YOUR MINDS AND YOUR PLANS OF ACTION THEN MAYBE YOU TO CAN DEAL "WITHIN" AND "ON" THE BANKS!
General Nikki X knows these words are hard pills to swallow for some but she wouldn't tell you this, Black man & Black woman, If she didn't love you so!!!
BLACK FIST, BLACK POWER, BLACK NATION!!!

$6.5 MILLION SETTLEMENT REACHED: OWENSBY SR. SAYS, "HE FEARED ANOTHER RIOT."
After 5 1/2 years and alot of pain, suffering, cover-up & lies, The Owensby family has agreed to accept of settlement from the City of Cincinnati for the brutal vicious murder of their son Gulf War veteran Roger Owensby Jr. The following is a small excerpt from the devil's online newspaper The Cincinnati Enquirer:
CITY, OWENSBY FAMILY SETTLE $6.5 MILLION PAYMENT HALTS POLICE-CUSTODY DEATH CASE
By DAN HORN AND EILEEN-- ENQUIRER STAFF WRITERS
The city of Cincinnati agreed Friday to a $6.5 million settlement with the family of Roger Owensby Jr., the Cincinnati man who died in police custody nearly six years ago.
The settlement - believed to be the largest of its kind in Cincinnati history - resolve one of the best-known and most contentious civil rights claims against the city's Police Department.
Owensby's death by asphyxiation while in police custody Nov. 7, 2000, energized community activists who had complained for years about the treatment of African-Americans by Cincinnati police officers.
Tensions erupted five months later, in April 2001, when a police shooting of an unarmed black suspects sparked days of unrest and rioting.
Mayor Mark Mallory said he hoped the settlement Friday would help improve police-community relations and would allow Owensby's family and the rest of the city to begin moving forward.
He noted that, without the settlement, the case would have gone to trial in U.S. District Court the first week of April - the fifth anniversary of the riots.
"The community really needs to heal and this would allow us the closure necessary to heal," Mallory said.
"The family has been through a lot, and I got the clear indiction they didn't want to put the community through a tough trial."
Owensby's family, Roger Owensby Sr., agreed.
"I had to think about the living," Owensby Sr., said. That is the only reason we didn't continue with this. I said, 'OK, if we can come to some type of agreement, I'll settle this.'"
Owensby, 56, said his son would have turned 35 on March 27. Owensby Jr's daughter, Myiesha, is 14.
"This has been a really hard fight for the whole family," he said.
Owensby said he feared a public trial could spark another riot.
"We were not running from justice, I just wanted to maintain peace," he said.
Under the terms of the settlement, the Owensby family would receive $4 million and their team of lawyers $2.5 million. The lawyers' fees are based on a formula establishment by the U.S. Supreme Court for civil rights cases.
The deal still requires the approval of City Council, but Mallory said he has spoken to several council members and does not expect much opposition. He said the city would issue bonds to pay the $6.5 million.
Owensby's father said the family plans to leave the area this year, but would like to set up a scholarship fund for disadvantaged children in his sons name once the settlement is final.
--End of Excerpt--
A FEW THOUGHTS FROM THE BLACK FIST
It's a shame The Owensby family will be leaving the area this year but I can understand, with all the heartache and suffering they've been through. I am under the understanding that the Mayor is to also issue a public apology in writing to the Owensby family. Now here is where we have a problem... The mayor that should be issuing the public apology in writing is ex-mayor Charles "Charlie" John Luken! He's the rat bastard that this vicious brutal murder took place under. Under Charlie Luken's watch not Mark Mallorys'! Now will Charlie Luken be the one signing that "apology", ASAP? Hell no he won't!!! Since it was he who fought tooth & nail to assist in the police cover-ups and the delay of justice coming to this long suffering family.
Charlie Luken is an alcoholic failure. The Black Fist is one of many in this city who could not be more pleased to see the back of his racist rotten ass as he left the office of Mayor & City of Cincinnati. Hopefully it is for good.
The Black Fist, The Black Panther Nation, and The Coalition For a Just Cincinnati was one of many activism groups that fight long & hard on behalf of the Owensby family and as spokeperson for The Black Fist, we'd like to wish The Owensby family the best of luck, peace & blessings in hoping they will one day find the comfort and happiness they so richly deserve.
I will reserve at this time the right to not express how The Black Fist feels about them settling the case and not exposing the beast that viciously murdered their son and the cover-up(s) by the city and county to ensure the murdering pigs spent not one day in jail! And we will also reserve the right to not express at this time what we truly feel about another potential riot in the city of Cincinnati due to Police Brutality heaped upon us by an organization of murdering savages for satan, The CPD! The Black Fist will respect the wishes of the Owensby family and allow for this settlement to be what it is. "A settlement."
The Owensby family "settled" this case, they will now move on. The Black Fist will NEVER move on or away from fighting day and night against the evils of Police Brutality!!! We are here and we will continue to expose the wickedness & viciousness of Police Brutality whenever and wherever it rears its ugly murdering head!!!
THAT IS A SOLEMN PROMISE!!!

F.O.P. OUTRAGED AT HONOR FOR BLACK PANTHER!
What else is new?
When isn't the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) outraged about something as it pertains to black people? Now comes this National Press Release from the FOP, straight off the national FOP's website about our dear brother and sorely missed black militant warrior, Bro. Fred Hampton. There was a move to name a street after the late Black Panther, Fred Hampton and the pigs are mad!
File this one under another Black Fist 'Round The Nation Special Report! Read This:
Press Release -- Fraternal Order of Police -- March 2, 2006.
F.O.P Outraged at Honor for Black Panther Thug
Chuck Canterbury, National President of the Fraternal Order of Police, expressed outraged at news that the Transportation Committee of the city of Chicago voted to name a street after a Black Panther thug who advocated the killing of police officers.
"Renaming streets should be an honor afforded to someone who did something positive for the community or its residents," Canterbury said. "This thug did neither -- he instead called for the murder of his fellow Chicagoans, the police officers working to keep all of the streets safe."
Fred Hampton, a chairman of the Black Panthers in Chicago in the late 1960s, exhorted his followers to "off the pigs." He and another Black Panther leader were killed in a police raid in December 1969. Alderman Madeline Haithcock put forward the proposal at the request of Hampton's son, Fred Hampton, Jr., who was sentenced to eighteen years in jail in 1993 after being convinced of a racially-motivated crime--the firebombing of two Korean-owned stores in Englewood.
The resolution passed to name the street Chairman Fred Hampton Way was passed by voice vote during a meeting of the city's Transportation Committee. The chairman of that committee, Alderman Tom Allen, acknowledges that he missed the significance of the proposal and now describes it as an "embarrassment." The proposal will now go to the full city council for further action.
"I think Alderman Allen's description doesn't go far enough, " said Canterbury. "It may be an embarrassment for the members of the committee that voted for this proposal, but it is an affront to the men and women of the Chicago Police Department who put their lives on the line each and every day to protect their fellow citizens. How can they be anything but outraged now that this city is considering honoring a man who called for their murder?"
The Fraternal Order of Police is the largest law enforcement labor organization in the United States, with more than 321,000 members.
--End of Press Release--
It's almost like what goes on here in Cincinnati, The city council may want to do the right thing and the FOP comes and bullies them, then they get scared & back down. Especially when it comes down to black people getting what's rightfully due them.
How many murders have the Chicago Police called for on black revolutionaries like our slain Bro. Fred Hampton? The nerve! The hypocrisy! The gall! The white supremacy that still in 2006 runs rampant! The police are the ones who set Bro. Hampton up in the first damn place with the assistance of the United Snakes Government!!!
No! The real embarrassment would be if the black brothers and sisters of Chicago didn't rise up and protest against NOT having a street named after this brother who laid it all on the line for them!!! If they are protesting and giving the white man hell about this situtation, my deepest apologies and support go out to them but if they are not that should be the biggest "embarrassment" of all!
We must stand with those who stand and have stood with us! It's the only just and proper thing to do! And as far as the FOP, those cops in blue will always close ranks and cover each others murdering corrupt asses just like how they close rank and cover their murdering corrupt asses right here in Cincinnati with the local FOP Lodge 69, so what's to be said there. The Black Fist has had plenty of experience doing battle with those beast so I know what I'm talking about!
Bro. Fred Hampton of The Black Panther Party is and will always be our strong black revolutionary brother! His memory will live on forever in the archives of black militant soldiers that fought and died for our liberation and our salvation. To hell with what any pig thinks about our brother! The members of The Black Fist will always honor and respect the lifeworks and black militancy of Bro. Fred Hampton!
Can you dig that Pigs!?!
BLACK FIST, BLACK POWER, BLACK NATION!!!
AND IN THE SPIRIT OF BRO. FRED HAMPTON AND THE BLACK PANTHER PARTY..."ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!!"
THIS WAS ANOTHER BLACK FIST 'ROUND THE NATION SPECIAL REPORT!
"IT MAY NOT ALWAYS BE GOOD NEWS BUT ITS HOOD NEWS!!!
DAVID PEPPER'S PAPA RUNS SLAVE CENTER RIGHT INTO THE GROUND!
What more can be said about this pathetic piece of Sinsinnati "history?" The Freedom-less Center which for the rest of this entry and beyond we will call the slave center, as other bloggers and conscience black folks in the community have righfully deemed it; is soon to be just a big ol' empty building if the slave center's new CEO David Pepper can't find some very deep private pockets or get his "wish" to fulfill a $2,000,000 to $3,000,000 a year "public" funding request.
It's pitiful. The Black Fist can remember when this thing was sold as racial reconciliation for the Cincinnati negro and of, course nothing less than healing between the races. What a laugh! The big white man even brought in the likes of big negroes like Oprah Winfrey, Angela Bassett, Courtney B. Vance, negroes from on high and negroes right below them to tell the negroes right here suffering under police brutality, racial profiling, the KKK making their yearly ni***** hatin' stops and a Cincinnati City government who blatantly robs blacks folks of their own tax dollars and gives them to white corporate businesses that everythangs gonna be alright now....y'all got the Freedom Center!
Well it looks like failure and mismangement runs in the Pepper bloodline cause here we have crybaby David Pepper's papa John (haven't we heard that name "papa john" somewhere before?) is going around town begging to keep this slave center afloat. And we know what a cosmic clossal failure David Pepper continues to be. (Vote Stephanie Dumas for Hamilton County Commissioner May 2, 2006.)
And what about the head negro in charge..Spencer Crew? He's still on the scene somewhere in slave center knowing he was in on the white man appeasement plan from the start. Because that's all the slave center has ever been just a big pretty building on the Ohio river to ease the guilt of the white man.
The boycott of downtown Cincinnati and the sanctions on travel & tourism have not been lifted, the demands have yet to be met and who in white coporate Cincinnati really gives a damn that the slave center sits about 12 blocks away from high-crime, murder, rape, dope peddling, poverty, hopelessness and heartache for the black man, the black woman and the black child?
Cincinnati City Councilman Chris Bortz (C) had this to say in The Cincinnati Enquirer about the slave center's trouble, "We're strapped for cash in a lot of areas," Cincinnati City Chris Bortz. "But the Freedom Center is a unique , special facility, unmatched in the country. It's a massive investment that must be maintained for it to pay dividends in the future." Is Bortz for real?
Also in the The Enquirer story it's reported that the "The city's $6 million, plus $13 million from Ohio and $22 million from the federal government, contributed toward the $110 million construction. Hamilton County built the $15 million platform and two-story garage on which the center stands." The center opened August 23, 2004.
Well the bottom line for The Black Fist is this; the slave center opened in August 23, 2004, and it can close on August 23, 2006, for all we care!
It just a big bottomless money pit!
What more can be said about the Freedom-less slave center?
Absolutely nothing at all.
NO PERMANENT FRIENDS, NO PERMANENT ENEMIES.....?
This story comes straight from The Cincinnati Enquirer, Columbus Bureau online edition.
Now before I even get into re-printing this little gem of a story, I must give a strong black power hand to our dear brother, Bro. Endure X -- local spokesperson for The New Black Panther Nation when he called into the "Lincoln Ware Show", WDBZ "The Buzz" of Cincinnati, and quite frankly in full fired black militant style lit up the phone line and basically blasted what is now know as "The Mallory Administration." Bro. X spoke of what he sees as Mayor Mark Mallory's "coded-language." I take it to mean he [Mallory] says one thing but means something entirely different. It was a very interesting conversation this morning on the radio between Bro. X and Lincoln Ware who even had to admit to himself & his listeners, he had to agree with Bro. X.
Let's get into this story now, shall we? Check this out:
COMPLAINT AGAINST MALLORY TOSSED By John Craig
COLUMBUS - A unanimous Ohio Elections Commission Thursday dismissed a 5-month complaint against Mayor Mark Mallory's campaign.
The case centered on whether Service Employees International Union District 1199 coordinated with Mallory for Citizens when it spent $40,389 last year on mail and phone calls supporting him.
Northside resident Sharon Koehler filed the complaint at the behest of Mallory's opponent, David Pepper, also a Democrat. But she later dropped the complaint, said Phillip Richter, executive director of the state Elections Commission.
Attorneys for Mallory's Campaign and the union denied any coordination.
Pepper - who is running for Hamilton County Commission - said Thursday that he recently had lunch with Mallory, and that dropping the elections complaint was a part of fence-mending between him and the mayor.
"Part of getting along well is...to put what was a good race behind us," Pepper said. "We're going to work closely together. To move the region forward, you need a county commission that can really work closely together. Frankly, before the race, Mark and I always had a good relationship and have a good relationship now."
Mallory has endorsed Pepper in his Hamilton County race.
Not everyone was making up Thursday, however.
William Mallory Sr., the mayor's father and an Ohio Election Commission member, recused himself from the 6-0 vote to dismiss. "Sharon Koehler used to be a friend of mine," he said.
She could not be reached for comment.
-- Enquirer story ends there --
Now my question is "WTF is going on!" Seems like I've been asking that question alot here lately. I have held off (on purpose) on assessing Mayor Mallory's performance in office so far. I felt that a 6 month time period should elapse then a review could be properly given.
All I will allow myself to say right now is Mayor Mark L. Mallory had better remember those who supported him and assisted him in getting into that Mayor's office while he's so quick to support the racist crybaby spoiled loser that fought him with all sorts of dirty tricks, lies and the race card!
I said it before in my entry: Mallory Supports Pepper For Hamilton County Commissioner? That our dear brother and political expert George "Junebug" Beatty told me back during the mayoral campaign that, "Sista Nikki in politics, there are no permanent friends and no permanent enemies!" Bro. Junebug has never been more right! And in my opinion, it's damn disgusting!
There are several "politicians" in this town that found out the hard way that double-crossing & triple-crossing their "so-called" support base got them nowhere except back at home with their families and (if lucky enough) back at their old jobs, with the name plates on the doors of their city council offices changed for good (at least changed for the next two years).
And why didn't crybaby David Pepper (in the spirit of "mending-fences") drop this bogus suit against Mark Mallory sooner? Doesn't the timing of this "new political frienship" seem a little fishy? Lil Davey drops the suit & Mallory supports him for Hamilton County Commissioner?
I'm asking the questions knowing full well that even Stevie Wonder can see right through this one!
My hope is that Mayor Mark L. Mallory remembers his mayoral campaign promises when we couldn't get enough of him strolling through the black community talking, smiling and shaking hands with your average struggling-to-make-ends-meet black man and black woman.
One of the things that will help to eliminate crime in this city is jobs.
Not holding hands with Cincinnati Police Chief Streicher, not appeasing the white folks on the West Side (who didn't vote for you [Mallory] anyway), not talking about building new jails while standing shoulder-to-shoulder (in front of a microphone) with The Fraternal Order of Police - jails built only to lock up BLACK folks!
One of your #1 campaign promises and one of the #1 reasons you were endorsed by General Nikki X on behalf of The Black Fist was because you promised to create jobs in the BLACK community for BLACK people... not "minorities"!
Mayor Mallory go ahead and link up with the BEAST but when it's all said and done and election time comes floating back around, There are those in this [black] community who are saying they are already done with you. And already chanting 100 days into your administration, "Mark Mallory sold us out!"
Mr. Mallory, Don't ever forget your base -but- then again did the black community ever really know exactly who your base was?
Disgusted but not quite finished supporting you yet,
Brigadier General Nikki X
P.S. The next time you get "hungry" around "lunchtime", See if Hamilton County Commissioner Candidate Stephanie Dumas [the black woman] (D) is free. I'm sure she gets "hungry" too!
|WELCOME BACK TO CINCINNATI BROTHER SOLOMON ROYALL!|
Our dear brother and good friend Nate Livingston, Jr. over at The Cincinnati Black Blog has informed the community about a public meeting this Saturday, March 18, 2006, at New Friendship Baptist Church. According to Mr. Livingston, he received a flyer from a young lady, I would assume she's a member of The United Nation of Islam, promoting this very special event.
According to the flyer, this event is free and open to the public. The United Nation of Islam (UNOI) have a restaurant on Reading Rd. (at the corner of California Ave. & Reading Rd. to be exact) called Your Diner. The Black Fist have frequented that establishment quite often over the years and the brothers and sisters there are dedicated, peaceful, respectful and courteous. On a first name basis with many of the good brothers and sisters, General Nikki X enjoys the company & conversation of the brothers and sisters of The United Nation of Islam and the delicious food made fresh out of Your Diner!
The exciting brother and leader of the UNOI whose coming back to Cincinnati on Saturday, is none other than Solomon Royall. Just as Minister Louis Farrakhan is the captivating divine leader of The Nation of Islam, Our dear brother Solomon Royall is the captivating divine leader of The United Nation of Islam.
Allow me to give you, the faithful readers of the blog a little background on Bro. Solomon Royall. Please read this...
THE UNITED NATION OF ISLAM -- SOLOMON ROYALL
Royall, Allah in person is the spiritual Head of The United Nation of Islam, which is a separate and non related entity than the similiar sounding "Nation of Islam."
The United Nation of Islam is headquartered in Kansas City, Kansas and in less than three years, the community model that is being developed in the Kansas City Metropolitan area has become a shining example of a national and local commitment to improve our communities across this country.
The United Nation of Islam's World Wide Information Center located at http://unoi.org and http://unitednationofislam.com is an introduction to The United Nation of Islam, it's National Support Structure and some of it's activities which are being reproduced across this country.
The Toll Free Number is: 1 (800) 331.7668
THOUGHTS & OPINIONS FROM THE BLACK FIST
We are all brothers and sisters looking, searching and feeling our way through this jungle, the beast [white man] has brought us to against our will. We won't always agree on certain philosophies but there's alot of knowledge to be gained if we'd only take the time to listen with open minds and open hearts. Will members of this organization be at New Friendship Baptist Church to hear our brother speak? Maybe we will maybe we won't -- For only a jackass non-thinking arrogant media-attention seeking fool would give his locale to the enemy, right? So, if you see us there we're there. If you don't see familiar faces in the crowd know that we have New Black Fist Members, and they may be in the midst quietly representing.
Do we agree with everything Brother Solomon Royall teaches and/or his opinions and philosophies? No we do not! But he is our brother and we do indeed respect him and the UNOI, as a whole.
I pray that thoses fine black men and women in the The United Nation of Islam, as well as The Nation of Islam didn't hear the Troll on WAIF radio giggling and hee heeing about Master Fard Muhammad (peace be upon him) calling him a white this and a white that, mocking Savior's Day and sounding (once again I'm told) like an uneducated idiot. I'm told it was shameful, disgusting and quite frankly very unhealthy. But maybe the Troll will wake up and shut up before the brothers and sisters ever get wind of her uneducated, goofiness, mockery and slander against Master Fard Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the Troll
finds herself face-to-face with an angry dedicated member of The Nation of Islam -or- The United Nation of Islam. And being the local scared-to-death coward that she is, she will most likely find herself Shaking and Quaking in her boots...once again and of, course saying, "That's not what I said, it was all just tongue-in-cheek!" "They" trying to get me hurt!
I'm even told it's the Troll's voice is on [several copies] of a tape and online laughing and racially mocking Master Fard Muhammad (peace be upon him) -- not-- the mysterious "they" the Troll claims is always out to get her!
Who knows. But in any event...
Visit http://blackcincinnati.blogspot.com/2006/03/united-nation-of-islam-meeting.html to read Bro. Nate's blog entry regarding Mr. Royall's visit and his opinons on the UNOI.
PEACE & BLESSINGS TO ALL,
BLACK FIST, BLACK POWER, BLACK NATION!!!

|THE DEBUT OF GENERAL EMERALD X|
It brings me great pleasure to bring to you one of our newest and highly trained Generals, 'General Emerald.' General Emerald has contributed a fascinating piece of literary art in the form of a poem to our blog and for that, we thank this General from the bottom of our hearts! See blog entry: WELCOME TO THE BLACK FIST BLOG! For information on the variety of subjects we would be dealing with. You will find poems in the mix.
General Emerald believes in truth and the ability for one to look deep within oneself. The Black Fist Blog belongs to every member of our elite organization, and we are proud when one of our Generals contribute to the empowering writings, opinions and philosophies of The Black Fist. I love writing the articles on this blog but I do indeed love it even more when another General steps up to the journalist plate and makes it happen!
General Nikki X is so pleased to have other member of The Black Fist come forward with their great submissions and soon you will hearing from other strong Black Fist members such as 'General Malik X,' 'General Rakim,' & 'General Kwame X.' Just as you have heard from Bro. Kemuel Yisrael and The Delegate w/The Black Fist in the past.
These 3 strong Black men (Generals Malik X, Rakim & Kwame) are 3 of the most powerful, courageous, loyal and dedicated soldiers I've ever had the pleasure of doing battle alongside. True Black Militant warriors, in the spirit of Nat Turner (peace be upon him) and Dr. Khalid Abdul Muhammad (peace be upon him).
So without further ado, we'd like to bring to the screen our top solidier...The powerful...The heavy...GENERAL EMERALD!!!
Read this -- then give General Emerald a strong Black Hand!!!...The General calls this debut to The Black Fist Blog.....
GOSSIP --- REMEMBER ME?
My name is Gossip. I have no respect for justice. I maim without killing. I break hearts and ruin lives. I am curious and malicious and gather strength with age.
The more I am quoted, the more I am believed. I flourish at every level of society. My victims are helpless. They cannot protect themselves against me because I have no name and no face. To track me down is impossible. The harder you try, the more elusive I become.
I am nobody's friend. Once I tarnish a reputation, it is never the same. I topple governments and wreck marriages. I make innocent people cry in their pillows.
My name is GOSSIP.
THERE IT IS, THERE IT IS, THERE IT IS! The Debut of General Emerald X!
General Emerald thiought due to all of the deception, lies and backstabbing that goes on in the black community, this was the property time to shine the mirror of truth in the faces of some of our most deceptive lying tongues that wag incessively within our midst.
Deceptive so-called Cincinnati negroes at their worst. It's heartbreaking to see and hear.
General Emerald hopes this contribution will open the eyes and minds of our beautiful beloved Black nation then maybe they will see the error of their ways and stop before it's too late! Gossip, falsehood and lies is a terrible condition that diseases the tongues of our people against one another. We must come together like brothers and sisters!
General Emerald leaves you with the greetings of BLACK FIST, BLACK POWER, BLACK NATION!!!
The official greeting of "The Black Fist!"
General Nikki X says, We thank you on behalf of the black community for that powerful artist poem, General Emerald. It was 100% truth and hopefully reached those who needed to be reached. We hope it will not your last!
Coming Soon..... "The Debut of General Malik X!" You won't wanna miss!!!
This comes straight from www.capitolhillblue.com and I found it so interesting that I wanted to share it with you. If you haven't already heard United States House of Representative John Conyers (D), has been one of the lead fighters & advocates of black people here in these United States getting what's due us in the form of reparations based on 400 years of slavery.
So, of course he's been a target over the years of several political witch hunts, falsehood and defamation against his character.
Here is what was written about our dear brother and U.S. House Representative John Conyers and you, the faithful consistant readers of this blog give us your opinion....
Conyers used staff as personal servants
Posted at March 2, 2006 04:37 AM in Capitol Hillbillies.
Three former aides to U.S. Rep. John Conyers say the lawmaker used them as baby sitters and personal servants while they were suppose to be working in his Michigan offices.
The aides said that Conyers had them tutor and care for his two sons; help his wife, now-City Councilwoman Monica Conyers, with law studies; and drive him to political and private events.
The accusations come from Deanna Maher, former chief of Conyers' office in Southgate; Sydney Rooks, Conyers' lawyer from 1997 to 2000; and Dean Christian Thornton, a legislative aide fired in January, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Maher said that in 1998, Conyers ordered her to live in his Detroit house while his wife attended law classes in Oklahoma. Maher said she lived there for six weeks, caring for the couple's two young sons.
Maher and Thornton have written to the House Ethics Committee. Rooks said she talked to committee staffers on the subject in 1999 and 2004 and plans to make a formal complaint soon.
"I'm not going to get into responding to these things," said Stanley Brand, an attorney for Conyers.
Brand said Conyers responded to ethics committee questions when it considered some of the same allegations two years ago.
Conyers, 76, has served in the House of since 1965. The Democrat is the senior minority member of the House Judiciary Committee.
-- Story ends there--
Well folks what do you think of that? Could it be true? -or- Could it be just some disgruntled employees trying to make trouble for Rep. Conyers?
I don't really know. But what I am interested in is making sure none of these "employees" are paid agents by the whiteman to get Rep. Conyers thinking and tripping on these "allegations," then in turn taking his eye off the prize, so to speak, and that's our [black peoples'] rightfully entitlement of Reparations, that he has introduced on Capitol Hill. That which has been stalled, laughed at and downright rejected at every turn by his big white collegues!
Reparations means "To Repair." We must be repaired from the wicked viciousness of American Chattel Slavery [us]!
By any means necessary!
There's no other way to get around it.
Tell us what you think "so-called american" Black Man & Black Woman -- We are hear & we are listening!
|WHEN WILL IT EVER END?|
I found this story in yesterday's Cincinnati Enquirer Online Edition, I've been interested in this story ever since it happened. It's a local tragedy -or- should I say another local tragedy. Here on this blog, I've written over & over & over again about the high homicide rate of this city. But Cincinnati City Council and the Mayor seem to only care about homosexuals getting special rights and authorizing the Cincinnati police to bust even more black heads and search black folks cars if they [the police] think they smell a little bit of gunja (weed). I could be wrong but I sincerly feel I am not. The Black Fist is always monitoring Cincinnati City Council and Hamilton County Commissioner meetings. So I'm not just talking out the side of my neck!
In any event, this story involves a child and I hope that whoever the bastard was that killed this young boy gets what's coming to him.
A lot of people swear by the New Testament but we, here at The Black Fist swear by the Old Testament. And we especially live by the part that states, An eye for an eye, A tooth for a tooth.
This story was written by Cincinnati Enquirer staff writer Sharon Coolidge. I never particularly enjoyed her view points especially as it pertains to the black nation here in Cincinnati, I always found them quite distorted and sometimes (more often than not) flat out rcaist!
I had to give you our take on Coolidge before I gave you the Coolidge story. The readers of this blog deserve nothing less than the truth!
Read this: TRIAL BEGINS IN FATAL SHOOTING OF 14-YEAR-OLD IN WESTWOOD
Fourteen-year-old Lorenzo Hairston was hanging out on the wrong block.
That's why Random King killed him last May, Assistant Hamilton County Prosecutor Kip Guinan told a jury Tuesday.
King shot Lorenzo five times, including two shots to the head, as he sat outside the Rheem Market in Westwood on the afternoon of May 14, Guinan said.
"The true tragedy of this case is the senselessness of this murder," Guinan said. "Lorenzo Hairston was killed because he was on (King's) block. Lorenzo Hairston, a 14-year-old-boy, didn't have to die."
King, 19, of Westwood, is charged with murder and carrying a concealed weapon. If convicted, he faces a possible life prison term.
Hairston was shot behind the McHenry Avenue market, a neighborhood convenience store and teen hangout, Guinan said. He died the next day.
During opening staements, King's attorney cautioned the jury to be wary of the evidence.
"Pay attention," said attorney Wende Cross. "If you find anything isn't reliable, the entire case is weakened and you may find reasonable doubt."
She pointed out there is no physical evidence tying king to the crime. "There is no weapon, no fingerprints, no property," Cross said.
The witnesses, Lorenzo's two friends, didn't cooperate at first, Cross pointed out.
Once questioned a few days later, both identified King in a lineup, Guinan said.
Cross ended opening statements with two questions:
"What proof is there that Lorenzo was shot by Random?" Cross asked. "What proof is there that Random was there at all?"
--Story ends there--
Now this tragic set of circumstances is disgusting. A 14-year-old boy shot to death 5 times and twice in the head because he was [allegedly] standing on "King's block." It's just craziness! We must stop this madness called black-on-black violence.
I've heard that an ex-black fist member is running around screaming & hollering (as he's known to do) stating "Black voilence was never the agenda of the black fist!" General Nikki X says, "What a damn lie!!!" But just another to add to the list of lies this delusional, disgraced and defunct loser is slithering through the hood telling.
Don't believe the re-invented tales from the crypt this loser is spewing! Anybody whose anybody knows The Black Fist for the last 4 years or so has had annual -- "The Black Fist Stop The Black Violence Tours," Where we go into a different black neighborhood every Thursday usually betwwen 4pm-5pm, most times longer. To protest against black fratricide and to educate our people on a variety of important life-giving, life-affirming information -- for us by us!
The Black Fist has always always always dealt with the ugly viciousness of black-on-black violence!!! How can we fight aginst police brutality with has always been our agenda since this organiztions conception and NOT address what we do to each other?
It makes no sense. Just as the "loser" that's using his bipolar lapdog and his own big fat mouth to lie and spew that bullshit makes no absolutely sense!
We will be keeping an eye on this case very closely. The Black Fist gives our deepest heartfelt condolences to the family of the murdered 14-year-old boy, Lorenzo Hairston.
Hoping and praying that justice comes to that family and prison time comes to whomever it was that pulled the trigger.
Was is attorney Wende Cross's client, Random King? We don't know but whomever it was should spend a very long time behind bars!
The Black Fist has seen cases in this state & others, where the prosecution and jurys have sent people to prison for murder without even having found the murdered victims body so we think the statement made by attorney Wende Cross about "no fingerprints, no weapon and no property," is just something a lwayer must point out but not to be taken as some kind of outstanding opening remark.
Just our opinion.
Uuuuummmmm, Wende Cross. Where have we heard that name before? Well, it doesn't matter anyway.....

|STEPHANIE DUMAS RUNS FOR COUNTY COMMISSIONER 2006|
There has been a high volume of inquiries about my blog entry: Mayor Mallory Endorses Pepper For Mayor, See this: http://theblackfistblog.blogspot.com/2006/03/mayor-mallory-endorses-david-pepper.html and about the Hamilton County Comissioners race in general.
As the days go on, I will be doing a complete profile on the candidate we know is the best choice and sorry it is NOT racist crybaby spoiled rich brat and failed mayoral candidate & ex-Cincinnati City councilman David Pepper.
Today I will reprint what was written in the Cincinnati Herald newspaper about the alternative to spoiled lil rich boy David Pepper, none other than Democrat Stephanie Dumas.
An experienced seasoned well-versed politician, who we, in The Black Fist feel has the best interest of the black community at heart.
As I stated earlier I will have a complete profile on Ms. Dumas for the readers of this blog soon but for now read this.......
Herald Newswire March 4, 2006 - March 10, 2006.
Democrat Stephanie Dumas announced she is running for the office of Hamilton County Commissioner in the May 2 primary.
Dumas and former Cincinnati City Councilmember David Pepper, also a Democrat, are two candidates who have announced their intentions to run for a seat on the Hamilton County Commission. The winner opposes Republican Phil Heimlich, the current commission chairman, in the November election.
Dumas is the former mayor of Forest Park. She resigned from the post in July 2005 after serving 12 years in office.
Dumas will officially kick off her campaign for county commissioner at 10 a.m. Thursday March 2, at The Senior Center, 11555 Kemper Road behind the Forest Park Municiple Building.
Pepper announced his candidacy for the position about a month ago.
End of the Cincinnati Herald Story.
So now you have a little of who is doing what in the Hamilton County race for Commissioner.
There is another choice other than "the other guy."
The Black Fist will be keeping a close eye on this race as we've done in past County Commissioner races. The Black Fist have always attended regular meetings of the County Commission and our eyes and ears are always focused on the shenanagans of Board Commissioner Phil Heimlich and Hamilton County Commissioner Pat DeWine when it comes to black folks getting their equal share of County contracts & etc. And when we can't physically attend we are always watching the regularly televised meeting on cable ch. 23.
There's alot of foolishness in the first 10 mins. of those meetings here lately but if you can get through that silly mess, you will find there's alot of business in the interest of the county & the city and it all revolves around the almighty dollar bill.
We must always remember Black folks contribute to the County coffers as well as the City of Cincinnati coffers, and the county budget is damn near 3 times what the city budget is. And for those of you who don't know, the lawyer who represents all 3 Hamilton County Commissioners is the counties head prosecutor, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters.
The County controls the prosecutors finanicial budget.
Black folks have a right to know what the hell is going on at The County and where they're county dollars are being spent. The Black Fist and other interested groups like 'Unite Cincinnati' for example, are on the case.
We are proud of Stephanie Dumas for throwing her hat into the ring against "the other guy" and most certainly proud that she is the first Black woman to run for Hamilton County Commissioner.
The Black Fist are indeed proud of that!
The Black Fist support Stephanie Dumas For Hamilton County Comissioner 2006!
