Nowhere exciting, actually. Always on Facebook, MySpace, BBW Vibe, Xanga, et al.

I am too ready to get back to Baltimore for Spring Break! 4 days to go and home I will be, God-willing. I have some major plans...if you know what I mean! I need to be away from TCU for awhile and its 347 black undergrads out of over 5,000 undergrads (please do not get me started on that issue!).

U.S. Says Blacks in Mississippi Suppress White Vote: The Good Ole U.S. of A.

October 11, 2006
U.S. Says Blacks in Mississippi Suppress White Vote
MACON, Miss., Oct. 5 — The Justice Department has chosen this no-stoplight, courthouse town buried in the eastern Mississippi prairie for an unusual civil rights test: the first federal lawsuit under the Voting Rights Act accusing blacks of suppressing the rights of whites. The action represents a sharp shift, and it has raised eyebrows outside the state. The government is charging blacks with voting fraud in a state whose violent rejection of blacks’ right to vote, over generations, helped give birth to the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Yet within Mississippi the case has provoked knowing nods rather than cries of outrage, even among liberal Democrats.The Justice Department’s main focus is Ike Brown, a local power broker whose imaginative electoral tactics have for 20 years caused whisperings from here to the state capital in Jackson, 100 miles to the southwest. Mr. Brown, tall, thin, a twice-convicted felon, the chairman of the Noxubee County Democratic Executive Committee and its undisputed political boss, is accused by the federal government of orchestrating — with the help of others — “relentless voting-related racial discrimination” against whites, whom blacks outnumber by more than 3 to 1 in the county.His goal, according to the government: keeping black politicians — ones supported by Mr. Brown, that is — in office. To do that, the department says, he and his allies devised a watertight system for controlling the all-determining Democratic primary, much as segregationists did decades ago. Mr. Brown is accused in the lawsuit and in supporting documents of paying and organizing notaries, some of whom illegally marked absentee ballots or influenced how the ballots were voted; of publishing a list of voters, all white, accompanied by a warning that they would be challenged at the polls; of importing black voters into the county; and of altering racial percentages in districts by manipulating the registration rolls. To run against the county prosecutor — one of two white officeholders in Noxubee — Mr. Brown brought in a black lawyer from outside the county, according to the supporting documents, who never even bothered to turn on the gas or electricity at his rented apartment. That candidate was disqualified.Whites, who make up just under 30 percent of the population here, are circumspect when discussing Mr. Brown, though he remains a hero to many blacks. When he drove off to federal prison to serve a sentence for tax fraud in 1995, he received a grand farewell from his political supporters and friends, including local elected officials; whites, on the other hand, for years have seen him as a kind of occult force in determining the affairs of the county. Still, many whites said privately they welcomed the Justice Department’s lawsuit, which is scheduled for trial early next year. “In my opinion, it puts the focus on fair play,” said Roderick Walker, the county prosecutor Mr. Brown tried to oust, in 2003. “They were doing something wrong.” Up and down South Jefferson Street, though, in the old brick commercial district, the white merchants refused to be quoted, for fear of alienating black customers. “There’s a lot of voting irregularities, but that’s all I’m going to say,” one woman said, ending the conversation abruptly. The Justice Department’s voting rights expert is less reserved. “Virtually every election provides a multitude of examples of these illegal activities organized by Ike Brown and other defendants, and those who act in concert with them,” the expert, Theodore S. Arrington, chairman of the political science department at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, wrote in a report filed with the court.Mr. Brown is coolly dismissive of the case against him. He has no office at the white-columned Noxubee County Courthouse, but that is where he casually greets visitors, in a chair near the entrance. A loquacious man, he both minimizes his own role and portrays himself as a central target. Far from being the vital orchestrator portrayed by the government, “when I was in Maxwell prison in ’95 and ’96, the show went right on,” he said.There are so few whites in the county, Mr. Brown suggests, that the tactics he is accused of are unnecessary to keep blacks in office. “They can’t win anyway unless we choose to vote for them,” he said with a smile. “If I was doing something wrong — that’s like closing the barn door when the horse is already gone.” He sees the lawsuit against him as merely the embittered reaction of whites who feel disenfranchised, and he scoffs at a consent decree signed last year in which county officials agreed not to harass or intimidate white candidates or voters, manipulate absentee ballots, or let poll workers coach voters, among other things. “I wouldn’t sign my name,” Mr. Brown said. But the Justice Department is pressing ahead with its suit, and wants to force Mr. Brown to agree to the same cease-and-desist conditions as his fellow county officials.The state’s Democratic establishment has hardly rallied around Mr. Brown; privately some Democrats here express disdain for his tactics. Instead, he is being defended by a maverick Republican lawyer who sees the suit as an example of undue interference in the affairs of a political party. “To do what they want to do, they would virtually have to take over the Democratic Party,” said the lawyer, Wilbur Colom, adding that Mr. Brown’s notoriety had made him the focus of the investigation. “I believe they were under so much pressure because of Ike’s very sophisticated election operation. He is a Karl Rove genius on the Noxubee County level.”In Jackson, though, a leading light in Mr. Brown’s own party, Mississippi Secretary of State Eric Clark, a longtime moderate in state politics, refused to endorse him. “Anybody who tries to prevent people from voting is breaking the law,” Mr. Clark said. “I certainly suspect some of that has been going on.”Back in Macon, in the shadow of the courthouse green’s standard-issue Confederate monument, Mr. Brown spoke of history: “They had their way all the time. They no longer have their way. That’s what it’s all about.” The case is “all about politics,” he said, “all about them trying to keep me from picking the lock.” But Mr. Walker, the county prosecutor, insisted the past had nothing to do with the case against Mr. Brown. “I wouldn’t sit here and pretend black people haven’t been mistreated,” he said. “I hate what happened in the past. But I can’t do anything about it.”

This country is un-fucking-believable!

I have not been here in a minute! Some much has happened since I last blogged here. I am currently in Fort Worth, Texas attending Texas Christian University. And so many not so great things are happening:
I had to have a place to write all of this down. I opened my mail today and I read a letter from my mother stating that she has no money, no food and that the Section 8 is being terminated as of September 30th. She says that I was trying escape a bad sitiuation (which I was), and that her only problem is money. She implies that I do not care about what she has been through lately. I then called her and she was on her way to the housing office to drop off some papers and was going to Social Services to see if she could get some emergency assistance, because she has not eaten. I transferred $16.50 to her credit union account on Saturday morning and she said that there was only $15 in the account when she went to make a withdrawl. I called the credit union and they told me that she had to call to see what money was taken out of her account. I hope that the other $33 that I transferred a week ago went through to her and not to the credit union. I immediately got on the phone and called cousin Inez, Godmother and my father. He called her cell phone and left a message on her voicemail. She then calls me and asks me "What did you do?" Godmother told me to give my father her work number and to come by to pick up some money from her at work. Godmother even said that she would try to get Mommy a job. I told my mother that I am doing all that I can to get her help and that I called my father because he has a car and could at least take her to the store or drop off groceries or something. I understand being self-suffecient and wanting to work things out on one's own, but even for me and for Mommy, there comes a time when you have got to ask for help. I rememberonce, Erica told me, "You need to let people help you." I am a firm believer in helping myself and not depending on others for help, but I noticed when Mommy got with Lloyd and he paid the bills, my tuition, food, cell phone, she sort of just stopped doing stuff. Then when his stuff ran out and he died, I had a job and picked up most of the slack. The difference between me and Lloyd is that I do not work as much or make nearly as much money as he did and I do not have a pension like he did. I basically live paycheck to paycheck, like so many other people. I was trying to hold on to the money in my savings account because that is really all that I have saved up period. If I need to handle something immediately, I have some money in my checking account, but it is only September 11th. I still have until December 15th and I do not make as much at this job as I was at the Little School. I do not understand why it is that I work as hard as I can in school and at my job, so that I can make my mother and others who have supported me proud and that I could have my own, so that my mother would not have to take care of me any more and yet, God still allows shit like this to continue to happen to my mother and me. The more I pray, the less money we have and the more problems we have. I know that as a Christian, things are not going to be easy, but why let things get better for a week or a month or six months and then it is back to worse than where you were before? The more I cry out to the Lord and ask for help and ask him to Bless my mother and her situation and to bless me, the less of a response I get. I have such a headache right now and I do not want to eat because my mother is 1400 miles away from me and dpes not have anything to eat. I missed my Religion class because I would not be able to concentrate on anything with this on my mind. I am tired of telling Rev. Wainwright about my problems. People have their own problems. I am tried of talking about it because I am sick of it being an issue. I want to be here and know that my mother is safe and sound and not hungry and is able to go to the Real Estate office and church or wherever else she wants to go and I do not have to worry myself over money. I have a lot to deal with here at TCU and I need to focus on school, so that I can get my degree and so that I will not have these issues EVER. I hate the fact that it sems that after Grandma died, my mother just gave up. I have never seen such a strong person so vunerable. I can only do so much here and even if I were home, there would be even less that I could do.

Why should Mardi Gras continue...

...when there are still people in the City of New Orleans without homes, money or any means of support? Why should it continue when all the media cares to do is to latch onto every single comment that the (black, up-for-reelection) Mayor says like blood-sucking leeches, instead of what little action has been taken to rebuild the city? Why can Prince Charles visit and acquire land, as well as Donald Trump, before the bodies have stopped floating down the street, but FEMA (whatever the hell that is) cannot get together enough funds to keep people in hotels and give them the trailors (who really wants a trailor anyway?) that they need and deserve? I am thoroughly fed-the-fuck-up with this country. It makes no damned sense why this is happening! Where are our so-called "Black Leaders" now? You cannot just speak when something happens. One must continue to fight to keep this current news, not yesterday's news. Fuck Mardi Gras! That is so not important. Fuck the United States Government as well.
