U.S. Rep Fred Upton Steals Land From The Black Residents of Benton Harbor

I am here today to let you know about the injustice that is going on in Benton Harbor, Michigan. Our city has one of the highest levels of poverty and unemployment in the country. Benton Harbor’s population is made up of Blacks, Hispanics and poor whites of which 94% are black, 90% live below the poverty level and 70% are unemployed. This is the location of the Whirlpool Corporation Headquarters and of U.S. Representative Fred Upton, who is the heir to the Whirlpool family fortune.

My husband the Rev. Edward Pinkney, one of the beloved leaders in Benton harbor, was put in prison for organizing against the Whirlpool Corporation, U.S. Representative Fred Upton, and its lynching judges Alfred Butzbaugh and Dennis Wiley. He was sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison for quoting the Bible verse `Deuteronomy 28` about what God shall visit upon the iniquitous. Whirlpool, U.S. Representative Fred Upton and Judge Dennis Wiley used this quote in an attempt to silence my husband, but he is not a man to be silenced. Beware you could be next!

This original charge stems from a successful recall of a corrupt city commissioner in a effort to stop Whirlpool, Harbor Shores, Cornerstone Alliance, and U.S. Representative Fred Upton from stealing prime lake front property, our very own Jean Klock Park, the only beach along Lake Michigan that was given to the citizens of Benton Harbor by John Klock. Whirlpool, Harbor Shores Developers and U.S. Representative Fred Upton want to steal the land to develop a 750 million to 1 billion dollars development known as Harbor Shores.

My husband, a true black community leader and activist, has led the fight against official corruption and corporate greed in his impoverished and beloved community of Benton Harbor. It is the only city in the United States where Black’s own lake front property. He is a political prisoner only because he had the spirit to take on Whirlpool and U.S. Representative Fred Upton, a known racist. My husband is under house arrest 24/7. The police come by everyday to check on him even though he wears a G.P.S. tether. He cannot preach in a church or speak in any church, but they cannot stop him from speaking or preaching at home.

My question to the people is; why should Governor Jennifer Granholm help Whirlpool and U.S.Representative Fred Upton steal our lake front land? Also, why will the Michigan Democratic Party let her or any other public representative support Whirlpool against the people of Benton Harbor? Our lakefront is being stolen for the development of a playground for wealthy people. We Need Your Help!

The Democratic Party has always claimed itself to be the party of the people. Then when will they begin to protect our rights? Join the campaign to stop Whirlpool, Harbor Shores, and U.S.Representative Fred Upton from stealing our public lake front park and land and removing all blacks from the city of Benton Harbor.

Ed Pinkney is a sociopath. He is beloved by those that fall to his superficial charm that only benefit his own glory. This is not about Benton Harbor but only about Ed Pinkney and what is in it for him.

I just bought a $2,500 Kitchenaid Refrigerator... very nice. Also got a matching set of Whirlpool washer and dryer. It feels great to support a local company.

Of course I bought my insurance from a national company. Heard too many horror stories about people getting ripped off. :)

Hiram C, I have finally discovered
your under the hood secrets. Why
don't you stop your sheet wearing
sissies from burning crosses, and
with your group of Southwestern Michigan racist behind you I see
why Berrien County is a racist place.

So under your guidance you have
the entire Berrien County court system, the Proscutor's Office,
and the Sheriff's Dept to do your
dirty work.

You have shown many times on here that you are getting old, and the
way you think is weak as water by
posting as a anonymous.

You know as well as I do that there is NO such insurance group
known as the National Society of
Insurance Salesperson, and I know
that you are happy because shitpool
gave you a $2.500 kitchenaid refrige for lying on Rev Pinkney.

It took me some time to piece the
puzzle together about you, not to
mention that the anonymous posters
are really you Old Racist Punk.

The word is out about how you
have Judges and Lawyers in your
organization (including County
Sheriff's). So now you have really set your faggot ass up to be
had, and its time for the FBI to sweep Berrien County clean of corruption. (SMOOCH) LoL
