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

Exposing the Corrupt NAACP



The NAACP has now become radicalized and worthless to us African-Americans, yet the NAACP claims to represent our interests. The NAACP has failed to help African-Americans prepare the next generation for the future. Those in the leadership of the NAACP are pimping our communities without a license.
 
The NAACP wants Blacks to stay on the voter plantation of government dependence and demand that
we except the role of the helpless victims doomed to mediocrity complexes.
 
The NAACP is a non-profit group that receives large chunks of taxpayers dollars each year to do
nothing helpful in the black communities. The NAACP receives the dollars to control the Black communities. 
 
As a "non-profit," The NAACP has sold out to the corporations and intentionally used illegal tactics to collect money from its members and other organizations, even the government.  

The NAACP is an organization full of fake ministers and christians.  
 
The NAACP tactics are in direct violation of its non-profit status since they are supposed to be nonpartian.

The NAACP's main objective is to keep collecting money from its members, donations from the
corporations, and funds from the government. The NAACP is a fraud; they have sold out to the corporations for corporate dollars.
 
The NAACP collects money for memberships that gives its members a false impression that they will
be protected from all racial hatred or racial discrimination, and that the organization will fight for its members.

The NAACP is like a pimp that charges its members a fee to create false dreams and false hopes. 

The NAACP does not follow their own constitutional by-laws.
 
If someone asks you to join the NAACP, ask them one simple question:  what do I get? (What do you have to offer me as a member of the NAACP?)  The answer: NOTHING. It's a big illusion. A giant
con.
 
To members of the NAACP:  when you vote in the NAACP election, do not forget to bring a picture ID.  You must have a picture ID to vote for NAACP officers.
 
Black people are afraid to call out the NAACP as nothing more than pimps.

Lynchings in Delaware/Why Dr. Issa was Really Arrested and Fired from Delaware State University


 
 
Langston Hughes' essay he wrote in 1934 in the Crisis Magazine (41 Aug.). He stated among other things that Black Colleges were doing their best to "produce Spineless Uncle Toms, uninformed, and full of mental and moral evasions."

"Cowards From The Colleges" (about HBCU's )*

"To me it seems that the day must come when we will not be proud of our Jim Crow centers built on the money docile and lying beggars have kidded white people into contributing. The day must come when we will not say that a college is a great college because it has a few beautiful buildings, and a half dowen Ph.D.'s on a faculty that is afraid to open its mouth though a lynching occurs at the college gates, or the wages of Negro workers in the community go down to zero!
...

Frankly, I see no hope for a new spirit today in the majority of the Negro schools of the South unless the students themselves put it there. Although there exists on all campuses, a distinct cleavage between the younger and older members of the faculties, almost everywhere the younger teachers, knowing well the existing evils, are as yet too afraid of their jobs to speak out, or to dare attempt to reform campus conditions. They content themselves by writing home to mama and by whispering to sympathetic visitors from a distance how they hate teaching under such conditions.

Meanwhile, more power to those brave and progressive students who strike against mid-Victiorian morals and the suppression of free thought and action! More power to the Ishmael Florys, and the Denmark Vesey Forum (student protesters) and the Howard undergraduates who picket the Senate's Jim Crow dining rooms--for unless we develop more and ever more such young men and women on our campuses as an antidote to the docile dignity of the meek professors and well-paid presidents who now run our institutions, American Negroes in the future had best look to the unlettered for their leaders, and expect only COWARDS FROM THE COLLEGES."

Court Watch  -  Originally posted  on the blog of the  Institute for International Cooperation and Development

Every day the Rev. Pinkney, from Benton Harbor, goes to the Berrien County court house to watch the proceedings. He has done this for many years and he has learned how the justice system works, and what the many flaws are. By watching in the courtroom he is also creating an impact in the court, not just because he is known there, but also because he is documenting the injustices that are happening every day.

Rev. Pinkney invited us to be part of ‘Court Watch’ as a service to the community, because as spectators we can also create an impact, and we can support people like him to continue fighting for equality.

We participate in Court Watch every other week and it has been a great experience for the participants to see with their own eyes what's the reality, and how the system is unjust. Rev. Pinkney explains;
“I have participated in Court Watch for over15 years and I have no doubt that I have an effect on adjudication. The most important thing is to do it every day. I’m representing the rights of black people now, but the thing I hope is to make sure there are just proceedings in the judicial system. I will keep doing it until the system becomes fair for everybody.”
Rev. Pinkney is not only going to Court Watch in Benton Harbor, but he is also informing people about the situation by radio, TV, newspaper, the internet, and working with community school boards as well as the NAACP.

Kim Hunt's out of control racism


Kim Hunt is the white manager of Cogic Village Apts., a very large complex in Benton Harbor.  She fired all Black employees and has hired her family and friends to work there. 
 
Kim hunt calls the Black ladies "Niggers" and "Black bitches."  If someone stands up to her, she evicts them.  She's evicted several Black residents, and threatened many more.
 
I have received over 25 complaints against Hunt. Her racist activity is so long-standing and vicious, it has now gotten me involved in the Cogic Village community.
 
Eugene Branch, owner of Handy Branch Service

Mr. Branch has been a contractor at Cogic Village Apts. since 2005.  He performs many jobs with no complaints.  Kim Hunt told the maintenance manager to fire Branch.  But the maintenance mngr. said Branch does a great job and refused.  So, Kim Hunt fired BOTH Branch and the maintenance mngr.
 
We had a protest Monday against Kim Hunt, Cogic, and Eagle Point Companies.  (Cogic is a church in Benton Harbor which owns Village Apts. complex;  Eagle Point is a nation-wide company which Cogic hired to manage the complex.)  Cogic pastor Nate Wells simply claims there are no problems with Kim Hunt.
 
Please call and protest the on-going treatment of the residents of Benton Harbor:
