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

Today, the town is almost a fascist dictatorship

Editorial in January, 2009 edition of People's Tribune
http://www.peoplestribune.org
(excerpt)...Today, the town is almost a fascist dictatorship.
When Rev. Edward Pinkney addressed the destruction of Benton Harbor by the corporations, city's rulers pulled out the race card to shut him up and to isolate the struggle from the rest of Michigan. They are well aware that the deteriorating industrial base of the entire state is creating anger among the previously well-paid white workers who also are being hurled into poverty. Racism serves to hide the reality that today, the white poor have more in common with the Black poor than they do with the corporations who have discarded them. Racism keeps the poor divided.
Lastly, the first line of attack of the rulers is to isolate the leaders from the movement they represent. The attack on Rev. Pinkney is an attempt to render the movement ineffective. A movement that does not defend its leaders cannot grow. Benton Harbor shows what lies ahead. Let's defend ourselves by defending democracy in Benton Harbor!

The head of the most racist organization in SW Michigan now says the others are racist keeping blacks and whites apart?

BTW in case you are wondering the racist organization I am speaking of is Bankkko.

I'm very offended at Banco's constant use of the terms "house negro" and "field negro." Just because a strong African American man or woman obtained an education and is fighting for progress, does not mean they deserve these racial slurs.

Good thing we have a new order in America with Obama; people like Pinkney, with delusions and dreams in their head of dividing races, will fade.

Quassam

What I don't understand is why they don't include Obama as a "house negro". He was raised by a white woman and went to a majority white college, then worked for the government. I do not mean to say he should be called that, nor any person. I am just curious. I do know that if Obama was conservative he'd have those kind of labels.

First I must address these undercover whites who uses
this site as their racism playground.

(HC) What I don't understand is why they don't include Obama as a "house negro". He was raised by a white woman and went to a majority white college.

How many White kids have went
to college who was raised by a
Black woman, and worn Black
turtle wax in order to attend
a majority Black College.Then worked for the government.
I do not mean to say he should
be called that, nor any person.

that you did not mean to say that?
You posted it anyways White Boy,

Obama is deal with the fact that he's the President.

Are you blinded on crack or are
you the Benton Harbor/Berrien County drunk?
Where did you read or see where anyone from BANCO dis-respect
another African American? Besides
that Kiss Ass Yardbrough, and
Mingo?.

After making this a statementlike this,(people like Pinkney, with delusions and dreams in their
head of dividing races, will fade)

Do that mean that you are about to fade your skin color by saying
that Rev Pinkney is having delusions?

To me you are the one who is
flipping out, and the proof
is all three of these are your posts.

You should be thankful that you
have enough nerves to shoot your
big mouth off on a damn machine.
I am willing to bet that you're one of them scared peckerwoods
who would attack with a gang,
and not MAN enough to speak
face to face with a Black man
who would wipe Main Street with your ass.
