Black Women Challenge Politicians and Hollywood: We are “Soul Sisters” – Let’s Talk

In response to mounting abortion mania from Black politicians and Hollywood Celebrities, Black activists are crying out. The current opposition to the “Heartbeat Bill” that will save the lives of countless babies and their mothers is unconscionable, taking on nightmare proportions of illogical justification. Consequently, Black Prolife activists urge opponents across the spectrum of Hollywood, politics and every walk of life to “meet in the public square” for a “come to Jesus” encounter. We should not be enemies. We have a common cause, to live, to grow and prosper. There has to be a better way to escape racism, abuse and poverty than killing our own; and not just by gun violence and Black on Black crime. Abortion is the number one culprit; killing millions of us as our women and children are being led to the slaughter.

The women are part of a larger group of African American leaders, the National Black Prolife Coalition, who see abortion as a cruel detriment to the growth of their communities.

“This Holy Week is the perfect time to pray for mothers and their unborn children. Thank God that Mary did not abort Jesus; even though her pregnancy was inconvenient in the eyes of many. Here in the 21st century, the infanticide and risks to a mother’s health are warning signals that abortion is never a healthy option for women. Black women suffer the highest risk of loss by abortion. How can the dream survive if we murder the children,” said Evangelist Alveda King.

“Gabrielle Union, Tracee Elliss Ross and Uzo Aduba are Planned Parenthood’s Ministers of Propaganda paid to ensure Georgia’s Black abortion rate remains at 62% or higher. Their absence from this state is welcomed since their presence and propaganda aids Planned Parenthood’s Negro Project’s genocide,” said Catherine Davis.

“So many children are denied their most basic human right – the right to life, with black babies topping the abortion list. Their civil rights trampled, their precious little bodies discarded like dung. What about the dream Dr. King so courageously worked for, marched for and ultimately died for? Sadly, when he died much of the ‘dream’ died with him but that’s not okay. We must revitalize the dream — for the very lives of all God’s children,” added Day Gardner.

“For decades, Planned Parenthood’s slick advertising has promoted the genocide against communities of color. They target our children for death, and use Gabrielle Union, Tracee Elliss Ross And Uzo Aduba to convince women to hate their children and kill them.” Denise Walker continued, “These women are not leaders – they are executioners. Shame on them for hating Black, Latina and Asian children!”

“So you legalized infanticide and then you legalized marijuana to drug us so we’ll forget about killing our babies. #GodisLife,” added Angela King.

“The black African seed that survived the slave trade, the trans-Atlantic passage and 400 years of slavery, lynching, and Jim Crow has been surrendered to the abortionist. The black vote, hard won to alleviate suffering, has become an instrument of death for children worldwide as we elect politicians lacking knowledge and basic respect for human life. Under the leadership of Democratic President Bill Clinton these same politicians showed similar disrespect for the liberty of young blacks as they voted to enact federal and state crime laws, Georgia SB440 and SB441, supporting mass incarceration that promised to keep blacks locked up beyond the age of reproduction, supporting the racist eugenicist ‘plan for peaceful genocide.’ Jesus Christ substitutes Himself for the ‘least of these,’ none less than the unborn or the prisoner, to insure ‘justice for all!’ Black lives matter, but ‘the souls of black folks’ matter more! Let’s come together with the God’s People’s Agenda and ponder the question: What constitutes human suffering and how can it be alleviated?” said Dr. Loretto Grier Cudjoe.

“As a child conceived in rape, it bothers me that it’s acceptable to sacrifice children like me for the sins of their fathers. Abortion is the #1 cause of death in the Black Community. For these misguided Black American female entertainers to promote the destruction of their own race is unconscionable,” concluded Lori Hoye.

“I had been like a gentle lamb led to the slaughter; I did not realize that they had plotted against me, saying, ‘Let us destroy the tree and its fruit; let us cut [them] off from the land of the living, that their names be remembered no more.’” Jeremiah 11:19

Cory Booker Is A Day Late and a Dollar Short: Redeeming MLK’s Check Must Include Reparations, Jubilee, and Redemption

Friday, April 12th, 2019

“…America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked “insufficient funds… we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation.” MLK 1963 “I HAVE A DREAM.”

Democrat presidential hopeful Cory Booker is touting a new reparations bill for African Americans while secretly supporting an agenda of genocide and infanticide by abortion of millions of Black babies. Even now, in New York, Cory’s camp is broadening abortion access and simultaneously working to legalize marijuana; kill the babies and anesthetize the conscience of the victims. What an oxymoron; offer freedom and death at the same time.

Let’s remind Mr. Booker and his colleagues that Black lives, Black losses by abortion – of one race/one blood human beings – should matter too. These losses should be included in all reparations discussions. Who should pay?

If anyone should pay reparations, it is the Democrat party.

They fought a war to keep slavery alive, opposed emancipation and the 13th, 14th, 15th Amendments, founded the KKK, instituted Jim Crow laws to keep emancipated blacks from voting Republican, kept the South segregated and managed to move blacks to their new welfare plantation, support a rabid abortion agenda… and the beat goes on.

See Emancipation Revelation Revolution:

Meanwhile, the iconic insufficient funds decree by Prophet Martin Luther King, Jr. is being misused by Mr. Booker and those of his ilk to stir emotions and raise false hopes.

What Mr. Booker is not saying is that reparations for American Blacks is not a new demand, which like criminal justice reform, must be a bi-partisan effort. Over the years, the initial initiative for our reparations became known as Forty Acres and a mule in reference to Special Field Orders No. 15, a promise made by the United States government to aid formerly enslaved black farmers.

When slavery ended with the American Civil War, many freed people were told by various political figures that they had a right to own the land they had long worked as slaves; consequently, the ex-slaves were eager to control their own property. However, the reparative order was rescinded by Abraham Lincoln’s successor.

What is a realistic diagram of reparations? Who currently benefits from American’s reparations?

In certain instances in America, European, Jewish, Native American, Asian and Latino communities have received reparative government assistance in the form of tax benefits, education assistance, and other concessions that Blacks do not receive in masse. These concessions have never been designed to be handouts; but rather they are hand up reparations.

For instance, when you purchase foreign automobiles, you repair a certain market; nail shops and beauty supply stores, a certain population benefits; casinos provide funds, and another people group is rewarded; small business independent gas stations are owned by another predominant group. These are just some examples of American opportunities for various people groups in America.

To a lesser degree and to a smaller population, some American Black athletes and entertainers and small business owners enjoy incomes in and above the six figure bracket. For the most part however, American Blacks have been offered excessive access to abortions and multi- generational welfare handouts and entitlements as benefits; which as such continue to generationally limit our success and stifle our productivity.

Today, from a deceptive politically motivated vantage point, American Blacks are being promised personal reparation checks from the federal government. This is a deceptive promise to stir emotions and offer false hope; a promise which in and of itself is undeliverable.

Here in the 21st century, redemption and restoration should include realistic curative reparations for Blacks.

“And really, I think maybe more than anything else, we are now proving that we are a nation that believes in redemption.” President Donald John Trump at White House announcement of FIRST STEP MONTH. April 1, 2019

America’s 21st Century Jubilee must include a new deal for African Americans.

Throughout America’s history, while various people groups have benefitted in whole or in part from reparations, for the most part, African American communities have benefitted the least.

Prayerful attention is therefore now hereby requested in regards to discussions and consideration for a 21st century reparations plan for Black America; circa slavery and post slavery America:

1. Enlist the prayers and support of the faith community in this effort.
2. Extend a term limited tax credit to recipients.
3. Extend lines of credit without severe and unfair credit scoring.
4. Enforce Ban on red lining by zip codes, social security numbers and zoning.
5. Ban unduly burdensome requirements for mortgage qualifications.
6. Award Full College Scholarships and loan forgiveness for those who want an accredited college degree. There should be no age restriction.
7. Extend Tax abatements
8. Wave penalties on compliance and qualifications on obtaining credit, voting rights and employment, business loans, for formerly incarcerated returning citizens.
9. Award land grants.
10. Cancel all abortion grants and repay the blood money. Let the people live.
11. The above terms must be awarded in total and not truncated.

In closing, I make this appeal: Don’t just give me a big fish today, teach me how to fish to live and bless my children and grandchildren. I believe that President Trump’s trajectory, which includes Opportunity Zones, realistic options to abortions, a safer America and many other opportunities that benefit not just Black Americans, but all Americans, is truly a way to reparations and redemption.

“God’s Spirit is on me; he’s chosen me to preach the Message of good news to the poor, Sent me to announce pardon to prisoners and recovery of sight to the blind, To set the burdened and battered free, to announce, “This is God’s year to act!” Luke 4:18-19 MSG

Kings Unite: Reparations and Jubilee Must Include Ending Abortion, Restoring Our Families

Monday, April 1st, 2019

“Don’t just give me a big fish today, teach me how to fish to live and bless my children.” Evangelist Alveda C. King

Evangelist Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for The Unborn joins her goddaughter Angela Stanton-King, American King Foundation in redefining the current reparations discussion.

“Where the plan for the forty acres and a mule was derailed several decades ago, along with atonement for the past evils of slavery, there is a new deadly agenda, a tremendously heavy additional burden of harm against the Black community that has resulted in the more recent deaths of millions of African Americans; human beings dead by abortion in the 20th and 21st century,” said Evangelist Alveda King.

“These Black lives, Black losses by abortion – of one race/one blood human beings – should matter too. These losses should be included in discussions and any restitution due to the Black community for past and current hurts.”

Meanwhile, in an effort to continue to cull black votes, a liberal movement is promising unsuspecting members of the African American community reparations in the form of cash and checks while secretly planning to use tax dollars connected to the abortion industry to foot the bill.

“While a reparations discussion that is desperately needed to justly realign the resources of the African American community, references to the 40 acres and a mule alone won’t do in 2019. There is so much water under the post slavery bridge, including the harm from the Jim Crow Era, that a revisit to the effort of reparations for American Blacks is overdue,” said Stanton King.

“Today, we need so much more than the big fishy scheme proposed by the liberals. We as African Americans need to know en masse how to fish and to be liberated to ably feed ourselves and our children for a lifetime.”

As such, the massively deceptive $1.5 million per person reparations plan currently touted by the liberal agenda rings hollow. They have people thinking that they will be passing out big checks in payment to absolve racism. However, this is a pie in the sky pipeline of a dream of cash handouts that the liberal media and political machine are dangling before us in the unduly oppressed and emotionally vulnerable Black communities of America.

How is the liberal agenda planning to pay for this genie in their bottle benevolence? You can guess that they won’t be digging into the coffers of those who continue to benefit from the abortion deaths of our children.

In the past, reparations plans for ethnic communities such as the Native Americans, Asians and Jews have been culturally specific, with efforts of righting evils of injustice towards their communities.

These reparations included requirements and conditions for the recipients.

Now, especially because it is so long overdue, Black people need revived hope. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s reference to insufficient funds must now be addressed for Blacks in America and indeed all Americans. There are many imbalances where Blacks in America that are seriously and disproportionately impacted by the absence of these funds: the criminal justice system, the health system, the education system and the economy.

It must however be emphasized that because MLK was a preacher and a prophet during his sojourn here on earth, he would likely advise that our prayers for justice should include a huge dose of Gospel Jubilee in the formula. While human laws will be part of the process, the windows of Heaven must also open for us if justice is to be completely fulfilled; not in a colorblind America. We must put on our glasses and see each other as one-blood human beings.

Prayerful attention is therefore now hereby requested in regards to discussions consideration for a reparations plan for Black America; circa slavery and post slavery America:

1. Enlist the prayers and support of the faith community in this effort.
2. Extend a term limited tax credit to recipients.
3. Extend lines of credit without severe and unfair credit scoring.
4. Ban red lining by zip codes, social security numbers and zoning.
5. Ban unduly burdensome requirements for mortgage qualifications.
6. Award Full College Scholarships for those who want an accredited college degree. There should be no age restrictions.
7. Extend Tax abatements.
8. Wave penalties on compliance and qualifications on obtaining credit and employment for formerly incarcerated returning citizens.
9. Eliminate abortions as part of this process.
10. The above terms must be awarded in total and not parceled out.

Judge Moore, NAACP, National Anthem, Church Shootings – America must cease fire or self-destruct

Friday, November 10th, 2017

171019 blog image2

Atlanta, GA – “For this people’s heart has grown dull, and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed; lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them.’” Acts 28:27

While praying for a response to the NAACP wanting to ban the National Anthem here comes the news of a very questionable attack on Judge Roy Moore. Meanwhile, we are still reeling from the church massacre in Texas. You’d think America would finally grow tired of venomous attacks on just about everything and seek divine intervention from our troubles. Yet, in the midst of violent natural disasters and human bloodbaths, we keep attacking each other rather than praying. It’s time for America to have a heart transplant and a blood transfusion.

The NAACP is reportedly offended by these lines in verse three of the National Anthem, and is seeking to repeal the song:

“No refuge could save the hireling and slave, from the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave…”

Francis Scott Key, who wrote the lyrics of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” was reportedly a slave owner and fierce opponent of abolition and according to some accounts may even have sparked the first race riot in Washington, D.C.

So as a Caucasian slave owner Key wrote the song in outrage of the enslavement of one of his Caucasian friends who had been kidnapped and forced into slavery while at the same time was glad that his Black slaves who were also fighting in the war were killed? Yet, the verse speaks of men both Caucasian and Black who fought in the war being enslaved or used by the British. Confusing isn’t it?

Whether we believe “The Star-Spangled Banner” is racist or not, we may never know the whole truth since we didn’t write it and we weren’t there when it was written. However, healing is available to us today if we can only repent of our own sins, forgive those who have sinned against us, love each other and learn live together in peace.

As the Acts 17:26 “one blood human race,” let’s leave off strife and idolatry, and call a cease fire with our words and our weapons; and let’s avoid self-destruction. Pray for America and the world.

America’s Independence Should Be For Everyone

Friday, June 30th, 2017

170630 blog image

July 4, 1776 was a great day in American history; Independence Day! So historically July 4th is a day that is celebrated yearly with family get-togethers, cookouts, parades, watermelon, and fireworks. It was a great day but not for all!

While our nation was liberated from British rule in 1776 there was a class of people, slaves that didn’t enjoy independence along with other Americans until the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863. Slaves weren’t considered to be persons until then.
Actually, slaves only achieved partial personhood in 1787; and then only because slave owners wanted to use them in order to gain a greater voting power and thus they were counted as three-fifths of a person in the Three-Fifths Compromise. The slaves didn’t enjoy true independence until 1863; and finally on June 19, 1885 Juneteenth Independence Day; a day celebrated in some circles with the same hoopla as many enjoy the Fourth of July.

Another class of Americans, the women suffragettes, waged and in some cases still do wage the battle for equality. Unfortunately all too many still confuse women’s rights with human rights, and many pre-born persons are being discriminated against and killed as a result.

Yet, the celebrations for this year’s 4th of July will go on for most Americans. Still, although African-Americans and women will join in the celebrations, there are still segments of Americans who do not enjoy the same freedom as everyone else; they include pre-born persons and victims of human trafficking in America and around the world.

America can never be truly free until the babies in the womb are free to be born, and all victims of abortion and other crimes against humanity are set free.

In America the unborn are not considered “persons” under the law and therefore they don’t enjoy the protection of the Fourteenth Amendment assuring ‘Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness;” a right the babies could expect prior to the Supreme Court decision made in Roe v. Wade on January 22, 1973. Since that date over 60 million babies have not celebrated an Independence Day, have not joined in family celebrations, watched fireworks or a parade.

I dream and pray for a day when all Americans, born and unborn, can enjoy justice for all and independence for all; an “Independence Day from Roe v. Wade” is in order. Otherwise, how can the dream survive abortion?

One day our babies will be free. Until that day, please enjoy this Independence Day but also say a prayer for those that are unable to celebrate it with us. And please take a moment to say this prayer for Independence Day!

Evangelist Alveda King urges: “MLK’s Dream Needs Help from God.”

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

170404 blog image1

“I just want to do God’s will. And he’s allowed me to go to the mountain top. And I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the Promised Land! I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the Promised Land.” Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“The world seems to have forgotten what Martin Luther King, Jr. knew; we need God’s help” said Evangelist Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life and niece of MLK. “Pray for President Trump, America, and the World. We must return to God.”

Yesterday, in the midst of planning to honor the MLK DREAM with a new Initiative, the Christian Evangelist woke up to the news that Reba McEntire and Lauren Daigle sang ‘Back to God’ at the 2017 ACM Awards. Evangelist King agrees that “as people of One Blood, we must repent, Pray and Unite. “Back to God’ was just the right direction for the times.

170404 blog image2“Today, April 4, 2017 marks the 49th Anniversary of the death of my Uncle. It is fitting therefore to call for the initial “A Time of Love and Reconciliation” which is being read by talk radio hosts of all political leanings drawing attention to H.R. 194 (110th), a resolution passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on July 29, 2008 that “apologize[d] to African Americans on behalf of the people of the United States, for the wrongs committed against them and their ancestors who suffered under slavery and Jim Crow” and “express[ed] its commitment to rectify the lingering consequences of the misdeeds committed against African Americans under slavery and Jim Crow and to stop the occurrence of human rights violations in the future.”

It’s an appropriate tribute to MLK’s 49th anniversary of his life and legacy. If he were here today, I believe he would agree with Ted Hays, leader of Heal America Collaborative, Reba and Lauren, and yes, me, and prayerfully lead people everywhere to return back to God,” urges Evangelist King.

“In the midst of life’s challenges; racism, war, poverty, human trafficking, abortion violence and evil of every kind; in order to escape the abyss, we need help from God to fulfill Uncle M. L.’s dream today! On this MLK Anniversary, as we join activist Ted Hayes with the launch of A Time of Love and Reconciliation,” God’s Word – “Return to Me” – is resonating across the atmospheres; reaching into the darkness and awakening a heavenly fire and light that cannot and will not be denied.

I’m honored to have my new book from Elijah List added to the cause; “AMERICA RETURN TO GOD” in proclaiming the very same message. If the Dream of my Uncle Martin Luther King, Jr. is to be fully received, we must return to, we must come back to God.

“My wayward children,” says the LORD, “come back to me, and I will heal your wayward hearts.”

Government’s Apology for Slavery and Jim Crowism Commemorated by Community Activists

Friday, March 31st, 2017

SPACER
Activists, Talk Radio Hosts Participate in “A Time of Love & Reconciliation”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 31, 2017

Contact for interviews: Evangelist Alveda King – 470-244-3302 or eugene@priestsforlife.org
Rev. CL Bryant – 318-458-1130 or guru@theclbryantshow.com
Ted Hayes at 424-248-4219 or apologyforgiven@gmail.com

Los Angeles, CA – To promote racial healing, Evangelist Alveda King, Rev. CL Bryant, Ted Hayes & Mike Siegel join with community and Civil activists across the USA on Monday, April 3, 2017 – the eve of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King assassination anniversary. It will kick-off a year-long campaign aimed at drawing attention to the federal government’s largely unpublicized House Resolution HR 194 the acknowledgement of and apology for slavery and subsequent discriminatory policies. This campaign will conclude with A Time of Love & Reconciliation on April 4, 2018, the 50th Anniversary of Dr. King’s death.

“In 2008, Congress made history by officially apologizing for chattel slavery in the United States and the subsequent Jim Crowism that plagued black people after emancipation. Everyone knows about the poor treatment, but few know about the rare act of contrition by our government and its intention to heal our nation,” said community activist Ted Hayes, a key organizer of A Time of Love & Reconciliation. “In my own experience, people knowing that this apology happened goes a long way in changing the minds of people holding negative opinions about America because of its treatment of the black community.”

Hayes and others will work with talk radio and television personalities of all political leanings to draw attention to HR 194, a resolution passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on July 29, 2008 that “apologize[d] to African Americans on behalf of the people of the United States, for the wrongs committed against them and their ancestors who suffered under slavery and Jim Crow” and “expresse[d] its commitment to rectify the lingering consequences of the misdeeds committed against African Americans under slavery and Jim Crow and to stop the occurrence of human rights violations in the future” A similar resolution was passed by the U.S. Senate almost a year later.

Organizers are recruiting radio and television hosts to read the content and discuss the meaning of the congressional slavery apology with their audiences. Increased knowledge of the apology, organizers point out, can significantly change the dynamics in the national narrative of race relations.

This national acknowledgement of the apology and movement for healing was initiated by Hayes, a community activist, and talk radio hosts Mike Seigel and C.L. Bryant. They are joined by civil rights activist Reverend Dr. Alveda King, the niece of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Hayes said: “We are hoping this year-long campaign that begins on April 3 and culminates on the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s departure from our earthly plane will provide us the opportunity to finally address the race matters in a more balanced, hopeful way. When I have personally enlightened people about the fact that the government has apologized and committed itself to working with the descendants of those who were once enslaved, it changes their perspective and helps our society heal.”

Talk radio hosts interested in participating in the April 3 reading of HR 194, or participating at a later date, are encouraged to contact Ted Hayes by phone at (424) 248-4219 or by email apologyforgiven@gmail.com. The same contact information should be used for requesting surrogate guests.

Reconciliation Begins in the Womb

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

If MLK could tweet at memorial

“Where peripherals collide, convergence is imminent.” Evangelist Alveda C. King

In the ongoing Movement to promote racial healing in America, there are unified nationwide efforts growing among spiritual, community and civil rights activists; most recently with some activities converging around the Anniversary of the Assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

There is the upcoming April 3, 2017 kickoff of a Year-Long Campaign beginning on the Eve of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Assassination Anniversary with a goal of creating “National Awareness of a Government Apology for Slavery and Institutional Discrimination” to culminate by the 50th Anniversary of MLK’s death next year.

Also, on March 19, 2017, yours truly joined a “Celebration of Unity” live streaming racial reconciliation rally hosted by The Free Church in Atlanta, GA. The response was positively overwhelming to say the least. It would appear that we are on the road to true Acts 17:26 racial reconciliation.

“In 2008, Congress made history by officially apologizing for chattel slavery in the United States and the subsequent Jim Crowism that plagued black people after emancipation. Everyone knew about the poor treatment, but few know about the rare act of contrition by our government and its intention to heal our nation,” said community activist Ted Hayes, a key organizer of the Day of Love and Reconciliation for Healing. “In my own experience, people knowing that this apology happened goes a long way in changing the minds of people holding negative opinions about America because of its treatment of the black community.”

The initial “Day of Love and Reconciliation for Healing” will be promoted by talk radio hosts of all political leanings drawing attention to H.R. 194 (110th); a resolution passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on July 29, 2008 that “apologize[d] to African Americans on behalf of the people of the United States, for the wrongs committed against them and their ancestors who suffered under slavery and Jim Crow” and “express[ed] its commitment to rectify the lingering consequences of the misdeeds committed against African Americans under slavery and Jim Crow and to stop the occurrence of human rights violations in the future.” A similar resolution was passed by the U.S. Senate almost a year later.

This congressional apology for slavery and Jim Crowism constitutes one of only a handful of times the U.S. government formally apologized for past actions.

A goal of the 3/3 project is that talk radio hosts and their audiences will read on the air and discuss the content and the meaning of the congressional apology for slavery.

Talk radio hosts interested in participating in the April 3 Day of Love and Reconciliation For Healing, or participating at a later date, are encouraged to contact Ted Hayes via apologyforgiven@gmail.com.

“We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters] or perish together as fools.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

On an endnote, speaking as Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn with Priests for Life, my co-host Emmanuel Boose of Changing Your Community Radio Show and I will be participating in the reconciliation effort.

We also affirm that one can only long for the day Congress will acknowledge the “One Blood, One Human Race” of Acts 17:26 and apologize for the atrocities suffered society from the ongoing scourge of abortion and its by products. Our shared hope is that someday there will be more legislation, museums and memorials dedicated to the weakest unseen victims of legal oppression: the 60 million victims of legal abortion, and their mothers and families. No more auction blocks, no more instruments used to dismember and decapitate innocent unborn children; no more shackles, no more bags marked “medical waste” where babies are thrown after being terminated.

Let’s pray for a brighter day for all life, for liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all. Pray for America.

Not Knowing Government’s Act of Contrition and Good Faith Keeps the Races Apart, Say Organizers

Year-Long Campaign Begins on Eve of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Assassination Anniversary With Goal of Creating National Awareness of Government Apology for Slavery, Institutional Discrimination by 50th Anniversary of Dr. King’s Death

Los Angeles, CA – In an effort to promote racial healing, talk radio hosts nationwide are teaming with community and civil rights activists on Monday, April 3, 2017 to begin a campaign aimed at drawing attention to the federal government’s recent but largely forgotten acknowledgement of and apology for slavery and subsequent discriminatory policies.

“In 2008, Congress made history by officially apologizing for chattel slavery in the United States and the subsequent Jim Crowism that plagued black people after emancipation. Everyone knew about the poor treatment, but few know about the rare act of contrition by our government and its intention to heal our nation,” said community activist Ted Hayes, a key organizer of the Day of Love and Reconciliation for Healing. “In my own experience, people knowing that this apology happened goes a long way in changing the minds of people holding negative opinions about America because of its treatment of the black community.”

This congressional apology for slavery and Jim Crowism constitutes one of only a handful of times the U.S. government formally apologized for past actions. In doing so, Congress finally and formally acknowledged (describing devastating effects of what happened), apologized for and sought to improve upon that state of black American in the wake of chattel slavery and generations of discriminatory Jim Crow laws.

http://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/five-times-united-states-officially-apologized-180959254/

This national acknowledgement of the apology was initiated by Hayes, a community activist, and talk radio show hosts– Mike Seigel and C.L. Bryant. They are joined by civil rights activist Reverend Dr. Alveda King, the niece of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

April 3 is the day before the anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination in Memphis in 1968, and this campaign to promote awareness of the congressional apology aims to inform as many Americans as possible in the year before the 50th anniversary observance of Dr. King’s death.

It is the hopes of the organizers that talk radio hosts and their audiences will read and discuss the content and the meaning of the congressional apology for slavery.

Organizers note this official act, made just prior to the election of the nation’s first black president, has been mistakenly overlooked. Increased knowledge of it, they point out, can significantly change the dynamics in the national narrative of race relations.

Hayes said: “We are hoping that this year-long campaign that begins on April 3 and culminates on the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s departure from our earthly plane will provide us the opportunity to finally address the race matters in a more balanced, hopeful way. When I have personally enlightened people about the fact that the government has apologized and committed itself to working with the descendants of those who were once enslaved, it changes their perspective and helps our society heal.”

Talk radio hosts participating in this event are asked to read all or portions of the resolution and invite callers to share their reactions about it. Hosts are encouraged to discuss how this may alter their opinions about race relations and how they might bring this up at their churches or community gatherings. In particular, for those in districts represented by a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, they may wish to engage with local lawmakers about how the resolution impacts their constituents.

Talk radio hosts interested in participating in the April 3 Day of Love and Reconciliation For Healing, or participating at a later date, are encouraged to contact Ted Hayes by phone at (424) 248-4219 or by email apologyforgiven@gmail.com. The same contact information should be used for requesting surrogate guests.

The New Civil War: Abortion

Civil Righs Begin in the Womb

The ongoing epic saga of the battle for Civil Rights has gained a boost from African American activist sans poet Shawn Welcome. He has posted a video on YouTube of his work, “Stand4Life Promo (Shawn Welcome – Civil War)”

“Bayonets in my neighbors’ neck if they’re close enough, gun-smoke and tensions in the air, this won’t end for another four years. The American Civil War, a bloody conflict within the same nation. On the backs of Blacks was built the wealthiest…” he laments, “Slave ships were packed and hearts were hardened, never asked to be here how unfair that we’re the problem…“

Welcome continues: “Never asked to be here, how unfair that they’re the problem,” he says as he moves his hand in cradle formation near his stomach alluding to the unborn babies in America.
“All in the name of freedom. Party like a rock-star while little ones are dying.

“Silent screams from injected saline and dreams you will never hear because little lungs were punctured before they could fully function,

WHO WILL BE A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS?” he cries out,

“How many freight trains of injustice will roll by behind church buildings while service inside sings louder?

“Hands in the air, pump up the volume…drowning out the rumblings of oppression.

“No formal funerals, nor miniature caskets, only the likes of medical waste to management tell me “how many pounds of flesh do you pick up for profit?

He continues with an eerie and compelling question: “And when will that “waste” begin to weigh down on your conscience?”

Now, do something to help end abortion, please SHARE the video with all your friends and family.
