Vulgarity of new-Rome as science & technology is slowed
Is there any meaning to terminology of progress is healthcare and science is not-Healthy? Where is the Medicare we forthrightly ha adherence to, the meanings of the process on the floor of US Congress—already a military-Hegemony ravishing what’s left of Republic—in 1961. The new-Rome began before the Oligarchic admonitions of JFK’s processing secret military operations, and he made blunders by overlapping those. His life was taken, because he did not see the complete light, and espoused other Lights. His was Liberalist policy and liberalism, but ours was traditional-Progressivism.
Malcolm-X was taken from the we-Progressives, in 1965—18 months after JFK. Medgar Evers, however, was the first nationally renown person assassinated for his social-Justice and civil-Rights temperances—in the boomer-Age. How come your high-School does not have the complete history of these events, or does have these facts followed, misrepresented? What bias, what prejudice against him were never explained in national “betrayal-News”? Was there arrogance-of-power in Evers points for integrated University of Mississippi; for afro-Amers to vote at polls on community and national-Elections? “R”
“In the weeks leading up to his death, Evers found himself the target of a number of threats. His public investigations into the murder of Emmett Till and his vocal support of Clyde Kennard left him vulnerable to attack. On May 28, 1963, a molotov cocktail was thrown into the carport of his home, and five days before his death, he was nearly run down by a car after he emerged from the Jackson NAACP office. Civil rights demonstrations accelerated in Jackson during the first week of June 1963. A local television station granted Evers time for a short speech, his first in Mississippi, where he outlined the goals of the Jackson movement. Following the speech, threats on Evers’ life increased.
On June 12, 1963, Evers pulled into his driveway after returning from an integration meeting where he had conferred with NAACP lawyers. Emerging from his car and carrying NAACP T-shirts that stated, “Jim Crow Must Go”, Evers was struck in the back with a bullet that ricocheted into his home. He staggered 30 feet before collapsing, dying at the local hospital 50 minutes later. Evers was murdered just hours after President John F. Kennedy’s speech on national television in support of civil rights.
Mourned nationally, Evers was buried on June 19 in Arlington National Cemetery and received full military honors in front of a crowd of more than 3,000 people, the largest funeral at Arlington since John Foster Dulles. The past chairman of the American Veterans Committee, Mickey Levine, said at the services, “No soldier in this field has fought more courageously, more heroically than Medgar Evers.”
On June 23, Byron De La Beckwith, a fertilizer salesman and member of the White Citizens’ Council and Ku Klux Klan, was arrested for Evers’ murder. During the course of his first 1964 trial, De La Beckwith was visited by former Mississippi governor Ross Barnett and one time Army Major General Edwin A. Walker.
All-white juries twice that year deadlocked on De La Beckwith’s guilt, allowing him to escape justice. In response to the murder and miscarriage of justice, musician Bob Dylan wrote the song “Only a Pawn in Their Game” about Evers and his assassin. Phil Ochs wrote the songs “Too Many Martyrs” and “Another Country” in response to the killing (Evers is also mentioned in the song “Love Me I’m a Liberal”).”
NAACP HISTORY: MEDGAR EVERS (1-25-14) @
One beat-POet after the other I met and had some comments and facts, history exchanges. The hardest one was w Amiri Baraka, a person who’s love of Black Liberation, made other poets either move closer or try a different venue for cultural-Pronouncements. One reason was the afro-Amers social venues were as expensive as dN-tN events, unless there was an open-Mic included. The other “was of that need—a specific” but not a chastisement, nor always a regalia. The man was as a “spirit-Central commodious” and an ’odious commodore of spates renown to brutality cannot be for Violent for non-violence” foresaken. These steps of interments were that survival is not the struggle, but that “surviving is what we do best”. Ohh-bom-bah-bin-dingy is no survivalist, but is he the chauvinism of the usage that others cannot portray as defeatism that which allays yet another cause “no boundless democracy”. The Amiri I knew could not ‘lean on’ defeatist nor fear as poetic discern. “R”
“Amiri Baraka is gone. Where shall we go? What is to be done? Let us remember Baraka was a revolutionary, communist, anti-imperialist and internationalist who deployed art and language in the cause of Black liberation, working class freedom and human emancipation. His extraordinary intellect combined with an extraordinary will and unshakeable principles and morality. In spite of his glorious mind he never privileged himself. He often seemed embarrassed when people made a fuss over him.
Never has poetry, music, drama, literature, eulogy, music commentary and criticism been so effectively deployed in the cause of freedom. It was obvious that for him art and revolution were two sides of an inseparable dialectic; in other words, if you didn’t want revolution you didn’t want art, at least art committed to the people. Far more than the usually construed academic option where art and reality are like form and content, in his praxis it was the unity of the historically inevitable, collective consciousness and the existential that produced people’s art.
Amiri’s was a long journey, that mirrored the complexities and contradictions of the time he lived, and his ambition to use his indomitable will, passion and drive to right the wrongs of history, especially the crimes committed upon his beloved Afro-American people. His life did not proceed linearly. Like all things in history and nature it advanced in and through contradictions. Yet, at the end of the day he was a genius seeking to do all he could to free his people. In the course of his life he became a part of us and we of him.
Through our grief and tears we must prepare for the ideological onslaught of the buzzards of the ruling elites (the New York Times threw the first blow) and their black and white academic deconstructors who will now seek to invent and reinvent Amiri. The defense of Amiri is the defense of our national liberation and working class emancipatory aspirations.”’
As Life was flow of afro-Americanism, the flux of the pan-Africanism, was about making realization constant check on the indemnity of cultural output, one should state. My own knowing of him was from hanging-out and seeing his grotesque earnestness, as commensurate w my own. I could attest my own feeling were placing virtual physical ‘pains’ aside. No matter, waiting around to talk a few sentences on the aspects of measuring-Radionuclides would reflect upon afro-Amer culturalization accomplishments, and he spoke, “that. You do that as your part of cultural need; not scientific!” His friend liked my Van-2 and said, “you leave that…there”? They were hipper than “the Black Panthers of 1970, in Oakland had not been contrary” that as rev-Paul had said similarly, “you put trust in yourself, not one”. I was pleased to have met w the Leroy man, and his friends had too felt adamantly “that I should; parallel the constraining and containment of ‘nuclearism’ w that of democracy”.
We were like that atavism, I had to at least speak in voice to myself. Then, I had to depart Newark, New Jersey, and finding a syncopation, immerse in moral strategy of “survival-Justice” which I have done w a sense of renewed justice toward integration prophesized. “R”
““The music is created by people in struggle. For whom struggle is one constant tone of life’s registration. It shapes every aspect of Black life.” Ultimately, though, “We need a Cultural Revolution in the US and internationally, to reorient the world and ultimately transform it where we and everybody else is self-determining. Our music, naturally, will be a big part of that because that is how we communicate with ourselves, each other, and the world.”
As the American ruling class after Reagan moved to consolidate the American global Empire and situate it as the single superpower and “indispensible nation,” Baraka realized the threat of constant wars abroad threatened bourgeois democracy and made fascism at home inevitable. After the 2001 attack upon the World Trade Center and the Pentagon he proclaims in the poem “Who Blew Up America” that it was a dangerous alliance of domestic and international forces seeking a rationale for war and repression that were behind it. He conceived of an anti-fascist strategy that translated in electoral struggles to siding with the “lesser of two evils” between the Democrats and Republicans. This strategy reversed an almost 25 year rejection of the two party fraud. By 2007 he is in the embrace of Barack Obama. At the end, however, he saw that rather than a lesser evil Obama was but a new articulation of the same old evil but with a different symbology. His anti-fascist strategy did not and could not work. It failed! Which leaves us to find the foundations of new democratic and revolutionary possibilities in the second decade of the 21st century.”
