THE EMERGENCE OF THE COLIN KAEPERNICK MESSAGE

  • A voice that expresses the sentiments of the people must not be silenced.
THE EMERGENCE OF THE COLIN KAEPERNICK MESSAGE

(A RESPONSE INDEPENDENT OF THE EUROCENTRIC CONTROLLED MEDIA)

By:  Mark Carven Olds, Managing Director, Midwest Minority Think Tank for Public Policy, Leadership, and Service, LLC

Beyond the personal support of the man, Colin Kaepernick.  I support the level of Black Consciousness that his actions have raised.  I have no personal knowledge of Colin Kaepernick’s faith commitment or any of his organizational allegiance.  What I do possess; however, is a keen awareness of the absence of justice in America and an astute recognition of the presence of injustice.  I have to act on the absence of justice and the presence of injustice far more than any personal action taken by Colin Kaepernick.  In essence, I appreciate Brother Colin’s courage to launch a personal protest that may involve into a movement.  What must be seen going forward is the meaning of why he started his personal sit down as opposed to what the flag does or does not stand for, or the National Anthem represents or does not represent.

The personal action demand has been launched by injustice and oppression aimed at Blacks and other people of color in this nation.  Since Colin Kaepernick has taken the systemic acts of oppression against the less fortunate personally, each individual must not look solely to Colin Kaepernick for a next course of action.  The question now becomes, what will you do as an individual?  What will be your individual protest or proactive response to the current plight of injustice?  Kaepernick has risked his career and his earning capacity on the line.  Will you stand or sit at the next high school football game?  Do you feel strong enough about the injustice to risk your son or nephew an opportunity to get a scholarship to college?  Or, do you feel the struggle should be left to others on a bigger stage?

Let us not allow “the Colin Kaepernick Experience” to become only a star-studded, trendy event. Should that become the course of action, then there will be the risk that entire effort will quickly fade.  This significant moment and opportunity should not be tabled until the next hottest thing appears.

  • In the comfort of your own home, what do you plan to do when the Nation Anthem is played?
  • In the confines of your own heart, what will you be thinking?
  • In the inner chambers of your heart, what action will be prompted within you when the Black National Anthem (Lift Every Voice and Sing) is played?

Some have suggested America (as far back as “the Ray Charles Rendition”) should be the Nation Anthem.

As related to the National Anthem controversy, I have a suggestion in the midst of the calls for dialogue and discussion.  I hereby suggest, “A’INT NO STOPPIN’ US NOW” by Whitehead and McFadden.  Colin Kaepernick has reminded us as well inspired us to move from merely standing to doing.  Whitehead and McFadden have reminded us and Colin Kaepernick and other professional athletes have shown us that we are on the move – A CHANGE IS COMING!

Rather than the continuous reliance on the Eurocentric controlled media for dialogue, discussion, and direction, www.blacksforchange.com proffers a platform of inclusion, proactive engagement, solution deployment.

WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM  has been launched as a website that shall embody the disenfranchised people of the Black community in a fresh empowering endeavor. The mission shall present an organism that will substantially contribute to the unification of the African-American community. Through an illustration of Black unity, an invitation can then be extended to ingratiate all other minority groups. When a path to unity has been clearly identified by a grassroots initiative among Black people, other minority groups will have a paragon to follow. This will reflect the same paradigm as the Black Movements for Civil Rights has served in the past.
The call to register on www.blacksforchange.com  should never be confused as voter registration drive associated with any primary or general election. When you register on www.blacksforchange.com, you will have acted on a precise call to become part of a campaign to set forth solutions. WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM  shall directly impact the African-American community by opening a platform to every individual.

This solidarity voice campaign has a realistic goal to become One Million Strong by Black History Month (February)-2017.
One Million Voices in solidarity, who have no political affiliation and have no allegiance to any political machine, will have assembled a strong force in America to present solutions rather a continuous round endless political rhetoric. Black America will have in the Solidarity of One Million Strong Voices, connected by www.blacksforchange.com, an independent voice not controlled by political machines or grant dollars. Most of all, back room deals will no longer be camouflaged by designated Black leaders who supposedly speak for the people. WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM  will represent the voice of the people, allowing each individual to set forth their solution path. No longer will the Democratic Party Plantation speak for all Black people. When the intense message of this initiative has been effectively accomplished as well as successfully internalized, we will demonstrate strength as a clear communication of solutions to any conundrum.

It is not an option to give away our vote in the hope that the elected official will come back with something beneficial for the constituency. We have grown impatient with candidates and institutions, who only wish to dialogue, study, and talk statistics about the problems that exist.
WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM  has granted the mechanism for Change to come to African-Americans. Change will only come forth to full fruition as we disperse the solutions from within our own ranks. The dissemination mechanism is present in the revealing of www.blacksforchange.com.

I SUPPORT COLIN KAEPERNICK

I SUPPORT COLIN KAEPERNICK

IMG_0003

I support Colin Kaepernick.  I have been exposed to the entire lyrics of The National Anthem. I have discovered that the second verse serves as an ode to slave owners.  In addition, it demeans Blacks as property.

I must interject here that African-Americans/Blacks in America did not come to this land as immigrants.  That is number one.  Number two, Africans were not looking for a better opportunity or quality of life in the agricultural industry in the southern states in America.  And number three, truth should and will triumph over patriotism.

The founding fathers of this nation and their patriotic movement sound have a background check (reality check).  The myth or history surrounding the so called founding fathers orbits a primary objective, freedom from a dominant power.  This has been the historical version taught in the public school system as related to the founding fathers.  These founding fathers of the United States of America were White (descendants of Europeans and proud owners of African slaves that were purchased expressly to supply a cheap labor force in America).

These founding fathers, including Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin, embraced the assignment with specificity of what they desired as an outcome.  A background check on these founding father and the birthers of this contemporary patriotic fervor should have been charged with crimes and convicted by the laws that they composed.  They were guilty of felonies and repeat offenders.  In contemporary America, they (the founding fathers) would be codified as habitual criminals.  They would forfeit their rights to bear arms or to vote.  The founding fathers of these United States of America would have their liberty and freedom curtailed.  They would have to register as sex offenders and would be ineligible to hold a political office.  Here is a partial list of their criminal offenses: 1) Breaking and Entering a Whole Continent, 2) Theft of a Whole Continent, 3) Conspiracy to Steal a Continent, 4) Rapes (too numerous to count), Murders (too numerous to count), 5) Refusal to Pay Taxes, 6) Conspiracy to Avoid Paying Taxes, 7) False Imprisonments (too numerous to count), 8) Human Trafficking (too numerous to count), 9) Kidnapping (too numerous to count), 10) Felonious Assaults (too numerous to count), 11) Slave Owners (too numerous to count), 12) Child Molestations (too numerous to count), and 13) Acts of Pedophilia (too numerous to count).

The founding fathers had envisioned as the illumination pathway to reach the ideal sociological interactions of their times as the following classified societal principles: 1) Segregation, 2) Apartheid System, 3) Racism, 4) Institutionalized Racism, 5) Elitism, and Classism.

Patrick Henry, a member of the founding fathers, wanted liberty or death for himself and his progeny.  I doubt very seriously if he would have responded in an affirmative manner – granting freedom to one of his many slaves.  Governing principles were at the core of the United States of America founding fathers movement toward nationhood status.  Very little was overlooked in their written documents (inclusive of the Declaration of Independence, Preamble to the Constitution, and the Constitution). Their positions were clear as their governing principles: 1) White Only Rule, 2) White Men Only Rule, 3) Denial of Civil Rights to People of Color, 4) No Commerce Opportunities for People of Color, and 5) Blacks Counted as 3/5 of a Human Being.

When you have before you a comprehensive background check of the birthers/ founding fathers of patriotism, I concur and support Colin Kaepernick.  It is hard to stand up for something that is not what it has been made out to be.  I support Colin Kaepernick, because none of the presidential candidates or political parties have made any overtures to address the materialization of the Municipal and County Police Departments.  The political candidates, nor their political party affiliations have addressed with a resolution the death of unarmed civilians by police.  Having said all the above, I support Colin Kaepernick and his position.

“THE RENEWAL OF A VOICE FOR A CONTINUOUS SOLIDARITY BREAKTHROUGH DAY!”

                The whole of society is clamoring for change.  Change, which shall improve the lot of the imperfect people and the impoverished people, will not come as a result of a political election.  Positive change for the oppressed people, the disadvantaged people can only emerge by a united front of those who have been designated as second class citizens and relegated to a suppressed populace state.

                Today, www.blacksforchange.com invites you to help empower the Black People in America by registering as a member on this site.  Membership on www.blacksforchange.com is non-invasive into your privacy.  It will; however, present a display of potential as a powerful unified effort. 

                  WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM shall present an opportunity for Brothers and Sisters to interact with a common thread to raise Black Consciousness.  You will be asked to give up far less personal data than a number of people freely give away daily on Facebook as well as a number of other web sites or social media hybrids.

                WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM is an endeavor owned and operated by Blacks.  It has been created by Blacks to advance solutions for Blacks as part of the ongoing “Solution Strategy” of the Midwest Minority Think Tank for Public Policy, Leadership, and Service, LLC.  This unique pioneering tool has been designed to further the awareness of Black Consciousness, while presenting a unified voice of solidarity among Blacks in America. 

                It serves well to reiterate at this point that “the call to register” on www.blacksforchange.com should never be confused as a voter registration drive associated with any local, state, national primary or general election.  When you have registered on www.blacksforchange.com, you will have proactively acted upon a precision call to become a functional part of an ongoing campaign to set forth solutions that shall elevate all Blacks.  WWW.BLACKSFORCHANGE.COM shall directly impact the African-American community by opening access to a platform to every member in more than a symbolic gesture.  Each voice of descendants of African slaves living in America can now be heard.

                Once you, your family, your friends as well as your acquaintances, your associates, and your colleagues have registered on www.blacksforchange.com, you will have in essence released a preemptive measure to help build a solidarity voice for the people.  This solidarity voice campaign has a realistically obtainable goal of One Million Strong by Black History Month (February) 2017.

                Black people should not and do not have to fear change.  Change, positive change for Blacks in America, – when congealed through solidarity – is inevitable.  We, African-Americans/Blacks in America, must unpretentiously become the engineers, who will determine what the positive change will engulf and represent.  The outcome of this social/theoretical engineering shall reveal itself as a watchword to be etched into Black Consciousness.  This positive change shall impact Black lives for generations to come.  A Change Is Coming!

                I have over 1100 friends on Facebook as well as followers of my blog and other social media venues, I make an earnest and urgent appeal to each and every one of you (if you have not already done so, as many already have) – please register today on www.blacksforchange.com.  In addition, I am urging you to lift up the watchword to join this Black Consciousness movement by uniting with www.blacksforchange.com.  Join with me and countless others who have determined to make this a catch phrase going forward: “make today and every day – THE RENEWAL OF A  VOICE FOR A CONTINUOUS SOLIDARITY BREAKTHROUGH DAY.”

                I strongly implore you to invite ten (10) others from your formal and informal list collaborators, coworkers, partners, and teammates to register on www.blacksforchange.com.  Join with www.blacksforchange.com and be a part of this history making venture.

                Our strategy at www.blacksforchange.com represents an easily launched and clearly defined initiative that will make each and every day: THE RENEWAL OF A VOICE FOR A CONTINUOUS SOLIDARITY BREAKTHROUGH DAY!

BLACK CONSCIOUSNESS – PART 1.

www.blacksforchange.com

 (Most) Blacks, living in America, must learn to love themselves (their brothers and sisters) more than they love the Democratic Party.  This segment of the populace who have joined this marriage to the Democratic Party must learn to display the same loyalty to other Blacks as they give unconditionally to the Democratic Party.  This love and loyalty demonstrated to the Democratic Party is blind, even more so than their religious faith.

The above statement should not be misconstrued as a blanket endorsement of the Republican Party (GOP).  Black voters get absolutely nothing (above some symbolic streets named after a brother or a sister), while all other ethnic groups get economic empowerment tools.  The fortification of the Black vote to the Democratic Party has been taken for granted.  Each election cycle produces a scenario where Blacks get less and less as they vote more and more for the Democratic Party.

Police Brutality, Poverty, Prison Population (Black Mass Incarceration), and Non-Investment Opportunities (Entrepreneurship Startup Capital) are not mentioned with solutions.

We, as Black People, must develop and then present the solutions to our issues to whatever political party, bureaucratic institution, or individual candidate, who will champion our solution as presented without attempting to dilute it with political rhetoric.  We, Black People, must demand from any political machine the loyalty that they seek from us with each election cycle.

As an individual of faith, I must thrust forth the words as penned by the Prophet Isaiah, “And those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins; You will raise up the age-old foundations; And you will be called the repairer of the breach, The restorer of the streets in which to dwell.” [Isaiah 58:12 NASB]  When these words of the prophet have been internalized, we, as Black people, will be able to practice love among one another, exercise loyalty toward one another, and implement trust in one another.  Then we will be able to accept solutions that shall arise from within our own ranks to determine the path to eliminate any conundrum, which shall attempt to plaque our people.

92H

Only then, should we, as Black people, decide to get on board a certain political train, we shall purchase our own ticket and choose our own destination.  The proffer of a free one way ticket will not guarantee a return trip home.

IMG_0075

FELONS IN AMERICA – THE BACKGROUND CHECK
(A HIGH HURDLE)
In a nation, any nation, laws exist to protect the orderly function of that society. Without law and order there would be chaos and mayhem.
A felony conviction in America has turned into a life sentence and a living hell after prison release. This statement is not a misnomer. Even if the felony conviction has not resulted in a life sentence in an incarcerated state, upon release, freedom for an ex-offender comes with the inability to secure decent housing (background check), equal opportunity employment (Background check), and the right to vote (disenfranchisement in a number of states). Some perfect individual (out there somewhere in America), please explain to me, “how in the hell on earth does an ex-offender commandeer good credit (with no job or housing).
Paying the debt that society has imposed through the Judicial System has proven to be insufficient. The person, who has been convicted of a felony, has pay for the rest of his or her life. Many dood causes or organizations cannot permit well-meaning volunteers to participate in their structured programs (background check).
Too many people have suffered continuously (besides the victims or the victimizers), mothers-fathers, wives-husbands, and children-grand-children as a result of an individual’s felony conviction. All have experienced the loser’s pain in a nation that has appeared unwilling to forgive even after heavy penalties have been paid in full.
Has the tone of the nation bowed to life punishment for any error or wrong act?
How have the hypocrites formed such an alliance that the entire nation has suffered from the un-forgiveness syndrome?
If you are an ex-felon, have a family member who is an ex-felon, or have a friend who is an ex-felon, it is time to register immediately on www.blacksforchange.com. This is a Black Consciousness website that will give a positive voice to all ex-offenders and their families.

A FLAWED VISIONARY: DEFINED

A FLAWED VISIONARY

My name is Mark Carven Olds, Managing Director of the Midwest Minority Think Tank for Public Policy, Leadership, and Service, LLC.

Today, I would like to present to you how I define “A Flawed Visionary” and the purpose that role serves.  “A Flawed Visionary” may be defined by seven distinct characteristics.  Today, we will examine the first definition rendered as – One having a fault who still has the audacity to predict future events or developments.

I have fully embraced the role of “A Flawed Visionary.”  On various occasions, my life’s sojourn has left me wounded.  Wherefore, I have experienced incidents that have created the opportunity for the eventual emergence of deep scars.  Scars can only become visible at the healing process’ conclusion.  My vita should have RESILIENCE in all caps.  If you were to make my life the subject of a documentary, you could easily conclude that I have failed more than most of my peers.  Wherefore, you would also discover that I probably have enjoyed more successful outcomes than most of my peers.  A numerical evaluation alone would not sufficiently cover my experiences.   The reason for these end results as related to my failures has a two-fold explanation:  1) I have attempted more diverse things than others, and 2) I have an active faith toward God.

I have the practical knowledge of the Biblical doctrine of suffering.  By experience, I know that weeping may endure for a night, but joy does come in the morning.

DEFINED

A Flawed Visionary is defined as:

  1. One having a fault who still has the audacity to predict future events or developments:

This definition must be divided into two parts.  Today, we see why audacity must be at the forefront of “A Flawed Visionary’s”

Success story.  “A Flawed Visionary” cannot be overly sensitive to the words or deeds of the distractors, who will be quick to point out the faults of “A Flawed Visionary.”

The word fault, when used as a verb, can deliver a consistent and none fading message.  This is most often the use by people who wish to lodge a criticism at another individual.  Using fault as a verb, the opposition can express one’s unfavorable opinion of the worth and quality of someone else – criticize.

When the word fault is used as a noun, it usually is cited to point out a defect in character, a weakness – imperfection.  Those, who wish to see you fail or never rise up, are quick to point out your imperfections.

In the recognition of the pronounced faults real or imagined of substance or enhanced, “A Flawed Visionary” must exercise three significant gifts that emerge from the spirit in order to achieve success.  When these three gifts are applied by “A Flawed Visionary,” neither the past nor present, can deny an onward march to success:

1) a prophetic spirit – the utterance of divinely inspired revelations to foretell future events. “A Flawed Visionary” knows the course that has to be taken.

2) an idealist spirit – the ability to set a standard of excellence and live under the influence thereof.  “A Flawed Visionary” forgets those which are behind and has instituted a made up mind to press toward a higher mark in the future.

And 3) a dreamer spirit – the capacity to embrace a series of thoughts, images, or emotions to become part of the human condition.  “A Flawed Visionary” has adorned the mantle of RESILIENCE, determined to stop at nothing until the goal in view has been attained.

I wish to take this time to tell you about my latest publication, “Refusal of Persona Non Grata Status.  Inside the Heart and Soul of a Convicted Felon: the Struggle to Retain Personhood.”

This volume will take you inside not merely a physical prison, but the spiritual battle to stay focused as a valued human being.  This work captures my personal experience to be a person and not become a number.  In this exertion, I reflect on the twelve stages of spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional warfare that I encountered daily.  These skirmishes are not written in any manual, but they are real in the heart and soul of anyone who has been incarcerated.  So many of those incarcerated become the victim of failure to the spiritual and psychological warfare that greets an individual upon the loss of freedom.

Unbroken Anguish, Relentless Battles, Shaping Destiny or Impacting History, as well as Humility and Wisdom are among the twelve stages of warfare that must be fought and won in order to retain personhood.  The Refusal of Persona Non Grata Status represents a vital key that will unlock the door of hope for a positive future.  The Refusal of Persona Non Grata Status assures the individual that in spite of the opposing odds, giving up and succumbing to failure or a lower class designation is not an option, nor an alternative.

Allow me to interject, all prisons are not constructed with concrete and steel.  There are many emotional, financial, mental, and spiritual prisons that have higher numerical populations than all the global criminal justice systems combined.

In this exertion, the foundation has been laid to help anyone through any dilemma that would threaten their personhood.  This is a clarion call to anyone who may have felt victimized or demeaned in character.  The Refusal of Persona Non Grata Status will help you to reach a victorious plateau over the twelve battle stages of spiritual warfare that seek to destroy your personhood.
