PROPORTIONAL REPRESENTATION GOES DOWN IN FLAMES !!!
Congratulations to the Supporters Against Issue 8 Proportional Representaion!
The Black Fist 2008 Election Endorsements listed a forceful resounding NO to Proportional Representation, P.R. as it's commonly called.
Our old friend George "Junebug" Beatty told me a long time ago, "General, in politics there are no permanent friends and no permanent enemies. Always remember that!" I thank dear Junebug for his words of advice and wisdom.
That is why today I am able to thank all those who joined The Black Fist Organization in helping defeat issue 8. We may not have worked directly together, but so what! We separately yet collectively reached the same goal.
First, we'd like to thank the Co-Chair of the Cincinnati Democratic Party Bro. Freeman McNeal on his tireless effort to spread the truth about P.R. and for staying strong in the face of vicious personal attacks.
Also, We'd like to Thank: Cincinnati Mayor Mark L. Mallory, Cincinnati City council members LaKeta Cole, & Cecil Thomas, our old friend former Mayor Dwight Tillery, our good friend WDBZ 1230 AM talk show host Ken Anderson, The Cincinnati Democratic Committee, The members of the Protect All Your Votes committee, Bro. Bishop E. Lynn Brown, The Cincinnati Black Panther Nation and its leadership, and of course the hardworking members of The Black Fist Organization and so many more!
No matter what you do in life it should be done with honesty and integrity, and without malice and revenge.
P.R. went down in flames for the most part due to the unsavory dishonest egotistical snide underhanded motives of one of the so-called proponents pushing the issue forward. Christopher Smitherman.
The voters of Cincinnati spoke loud and clear when in 2005 they choose NOT to re-elect Smitherman back to city council. The voters of Cincinnati spoke loud and clear yesterday when they chose NOT to vote for P.R., an issue put on the ballot and spearheaded by Christopher Smitherman.
Interestingly enough, it was stated in part today on 1230 AM WDBZ "The Lincoln Ware Show" by Smitherman that in the 2009 Cincinnati City council race, the incumbent candidates (as well as others who may file & run) must appear before the Cincinnati Branch of the NAACP at their long held 'Candidate's Night'. And they [the incumbents] will have to answer to the "leadership" of the NAACP and its membership as to why they did not support P.R. and the black community.
I wonder if the "leader" of the NAACP has ever taken his arrogant head out of the clouds long enough to ask himself: Maybe the voters of Cincinnati do support the NAACP as a whole, as a historical organization.....
JUST NOT THE "SNAKE IN A SUIT CON MAN" WHO IS CURRENTLY THE PRESIDENT OF THE ORGANIZATION?
NAW, HE WOULDN'T ASK HIMSELF THAT QUESTION.
BECAUSE HE IS THE "SNAKE IN A SUIT CON MAN" WHO IS CURRENTLY THE PRESIDENT OF THE ORGANIZATION!
The truth will be the truth no matter who likes or not.
And the truth can STAND on its own.
BLACK FIST, BLACK POWER, BLACK NATION!!!
KICKING TRUTH TO POWER!!!
