Rev. Pinkney Arrested AGAIN, supporters: Lynn Stewart, Voice Of Detroit, EXPOSED,

What's really happening to the people of Benton Harbor:
The thrust [of the Berrien county courthouse] is to physically remove and destroy families through the use
of the criminal justice system. Every person they can put in jail; every person whose voting rights they can
revoke with a felony conviction; every person they can cause to lose their job by putting them on probation;
every person they can cause to lose the ability to pay for basic necessities through imposing ruinous court
costs and probation is all part of the process. In the 1960s, it was called Negro removal. In Bosnia, it was
called ethnic cleansing. It could be called genocide, the removal of the minority population for the purpose
of redevelopment of the land. That’s what’s happening in Benton Harbor and the foremost leader
of the resistance is Rev. Edward Pinkney. --Civil rights attorney, Hugh "Buck" Davis

Robert Jensen article

Here's a segment from this fairly short article by Robert Jensen:

Imagine that you could line white people up in front of a door and get them to really believe that if they walked into a "race-changing room" they would emerge on the other side with black skin ... Then ask whites to set their price -- the amount of money it would take them to agree to enter that room. Imagine ... an attendant ... with stacks of cash to hand to the white folks. ... let's say the cash award is tax free. ...when white people really had to face the possibility of being black -- knowing all they know about the reality of life in white-supremacist America -- what would the price be?

My guess is that a significant percentage of whites would not become black for any amount of money. I also am fairly confident that the median price set by the whites who might be willing to go into the room would be considerably more than $1 million.

In that moment of choice...the problem wouldn't be that we whites don't know enough. We know plenty. The issue would be whether or not we had transcended the deeply rooted white supremacy of the culture. In that moment, we would find out about the depth of white people's commitment to a color-blind society. [or not]

That is just so dumb as to be insulting. How many blacks would change? It is insulting to say that the reason I wouldn't want to change is because the color is black. I like who I am. I would presume a black man would have the same reaction to a machine that made him white. Doesn't mean he is racist, means he is happy with how God made him.

The race change machine? LOL!!!

Looks like Banco is on the move again, solving problems for BH residents. I wonder if the "Reverend" Pickney has applied the same scientific analysis to his own plight: break law - go to jail - repeat.

What we need is Jackson State Professor Emeritus William "X" to weigh in on the subject. I believe he actually invented the race change machine.

Wow, great article. Hey, how about a sexual preference-changing machine? Would black people go for that? Of course not. Is it because black people discriminate? How about a machine that turns people into illegal Mexican laborers? How much would a black or white citizen pay for that? Nothing? A million? Is it because black or white people are racist?

The author of that article has a child-like grasp on social behavior, and thinks a magical machine will reveal undeniable truths. I think my 6 year old son has better reasoning skills that than.

The upshot of that moronic article is: if you don't want to be something you are not, then obviously you hate anybody that is.

Another Banco classic.

Unlikely you you asshole. I have been drug & alcohol free going on ten years, and you are the one who needs mental health treatment.

You are one sad multi screen name
asshole, and you don't know what you are blabbering about. I do
not need drugs or alcohol to help me to deal with your ignorant ass.

Again, you have made yourself look like a damn fool. You must be poor
and lonely? You don't scare NOBODY
with your typed words.

However, I am coming to Benton Harbor soon, and bring your white ass or Black ass to meet me.
I am starting to think that you are a Black man who hates, and that's still find with me.

hey anonymous. you hate dark people
that bad? don't you realize that
there is whites who really support
pinkney? by george you are making
us whites look bad, and believe it
or not William has the same rights
as you do.

blacks so much deal with them face to face, and i will attend your funeral.

Hey anonymous, you are trying to hard to "act white" and instead coming across like a cartoon character. Kind of like WilliamX who comes across like a parody of a militant black man. Which is why everyone thinks he must be a teenage white boy.

However I think that the tone of this blog is getting out of hand. Stop just picking on people and talk about the ideas and thoughts. Pinkney was tried, convicted and is now in jail I consider that a moral victory. Insulting those that disagree with you only make you look stupid. It does when WilliamX does and it does when the people who hate him do it.

HC.

PS. WilliamX as long as you continue to threaten people who disagree with you then people will treat you like a thug and stay anonymous.

You are one pityful asshole, and its sad that you like to keep shit going. Your bullshit isn't scaring me one bit anonymous, and I do not care how many names you use.

You are the one who is in need to impress someone, and again, hiding behind this screen is the ONLYY reason why you haven't had your face bashed in yet.

I do not understand why you come on a computer all big and bad,
and reality does allow you to come face to face with me.
Personally, I think you are the bitch your momma wanted you to be when you was hatched.

Anonymous, I love the respect your white two tone ass gives me. You
are trying to do me in like you are trying to bad mouth Rev Pinkney, and its sad that you are on your way to the grave with hate.

The fact is you feel intimindated
by strong black men who don't kiss your ass. You all mouth that's
what I am seeing in you and your other three screennames.

Just like you are hating we can
dislike too. Yet you wonder why Blacks mistreat you whites like we do. All throughout history whites have always been affraid of Blacks,
and your posting proves that to be
true. Why hate on a Blog when you can do it in person?

In closing, who are you trying to
impress the Judge?

Stay anonymous? Hahahaha I do NOT
have to post anonymous. Threaten
people? you are as dumb as you type. What about the racist BS that you are projecting as a anonymous?

Onething for sure I do use my real name, and that's because I have nothing to hide or hide behind.
Which makes me a FAR better man then your Daddy will ever be.
