First and foremost, I'd like to take this opportunity to say that I am so grateful for this forum to meet and communicate with so many brilliant minds.
For those that don't know me, I am the person that caused the Los Angeles County to revisit thirty-thousand foster care cases. I also made them admit that fifty percent of the children removed could have stayed home, they admitted to targeting the poor and they did it for the financial incentives. NBC4.TV Family 12/12/2003 and Daily News.com 11/04/2004 and Daily News.com 12/07/2003.
Having said that and giving a little background about myself, I can now get into my thoughts. I assist people throughout the Country regardless of color, I just help people. Having said that, this gives me expertise to testify as to what I am about to address.
I find it very strange that very seldom a Justice Department investigation is ever called upon by our African American Congressional leader's, specifically when there is a great number of police brutality's and beating within the Black communities by the local police departments. I find it even more strange whereby the Hon. Sheila Jackson out of Texas has requested a Justice Department investigation involving the shooting or the two Hispanic descent men, notice, Hispanic descent. Were has Ms. Jackson been when the brutalities have occurred again the Blacks in her district? The real question should be "How many Justice department Investigations has she ever requested on behalf of victims within her district?
This leads me to the next Hon. Maxine Water out of Los Angeles, she herself is calling for a Justice Department investigation regarding the shooting of a African American Postal Worker, mind you the officer is also Black; however, she has been very silent on behalf of Mr. Shaw the high school student who was gunned down by an illegal that had just been released from jail. Mine you, Mr. Shaw's Mom was in Iraq during the time of the shooting ? Do you see the paradox yet?
This brings me to my last example, Hon. Obama. I watched as the African American man questioned Hon. Obama about various police shootings, I also watched as Hon. Obama told the man that "if I didn't answer the questions in a manner that you wanted, you could vote for someone else". This is my point, I watched Obama address the questions from La Raza in San Diego Ca., over Sea and a variety of places.. Why does some of us feel as though we have to be disrespectful and nasty to one another? Has it become a second nature whereby we can address our own in any manner, be disrespectful and cold? Have we been so assured that we will give you the vote because you are Black? That statement was uncalled for and I am sure this young man knows that he has a choice as to whom to vote for.
On to my last point, why is it that when Hon. Obama goes out and speaks before Black organizations and/or churches he feels as though he has to lecture the Blacks? ( I stated before that their are many family problems in all races, based upon my expertise) Why doesn't he give the same lecture to the Whites, Hispanic etc?
Now. Hon. Obama, and the rest of the so-called leadership lets tell the people the real truth, since you all have failed to tell them. First of all, it isn't necessarily because one is Black that they are being oppressed, it is because they are poor. The more children that are removed, the more money the States and the Counties receive as a Federal financial incentive, the more people that are incarcerated the more the money, the more people in general are oppressed the more the money.
Obama. what you should be telling the Black community in particular is that " I will evaluate and limit the amounts of federal funding that have been utilized to oppress the people, you should ask that all suspect cases be revisited and brought to a true conclusion, as we in California are already asking for a Federal investigation into all cases within certain Counties, You should inform the people that by limiting the funding, the oppressions of a people will decrease, because their won't be any incentives. You should inform the people that in the state of Michigan 60% of all children have been removed. Why? Because this is the funding that is carrying this broke state and while you are at it inform the public that 80 percent of the 60% that have been removed came out of Wayne County, a Black County.
Hon. Obama, if you would tell this truth, not only would you be the first Black President, you will be the greatest President. You will free the slaves of all colors. This incentive money has made complete slaves out of the people in general, particularly the Black. Bottom line, this is not particularly a Black thing, this is a economic thing.
