Congressman JOHN CONYERS 2011 CBC REPARATIONS PANEL FORMED:
TO BE DISCUSSED SATURDAY SEPT. 17 ON REPARATIONS CONVERSATION RADIO SHOW
The panel for the “Reparations Forum” Rep. John Conyers will convene during CBC, (Congressional Black Caucus Weekend) has been released. Though the event is not called a Reparations Forum, it is called H. R. 40: Creating a Dialogue on the Legacy of Slavery. The name of the bill John Conyers annually introduces into the U. S. House of Representatives is H. R. 40; The Reparations Study Bill.
While the so-called Reparations bill has been, essentially useless, except mileage Reparations Advocates, who think something can be done to get America to obey its own law and pay Reparations. Yet, though the Forum doesn’t mention Reparations, the Conyers annual exercise is the second most popular annually event for N’COBRA: The National Coalition of Blacks For Reparations in America. The most popular is the N’COBRA conference in June.
The Panel will be moderated by Ron Daniels, he was never one of N’COBRA’s leaders, but he has been at most of the major events we have sponsored over the years: so he knows the issue as well as most Reparations Advocates today. The other members on the panel, put together by N’COBRA’S Kamm Howard, are: Nkechi Taifa, Shelly Moorehead, Jamoke Ifetavo (National Secretary of N’COBRA), Ari Merettazon ( National. Co-Chair of N’COBRA - Brother) and Sister Diana Kimble (National Co-Chair of N’COBRA – Sister).
REPARATIONS CONVERSATION AT
THE NAT TURNER LIBRARY ON BLOG TALK RADIO
The 2nd Reparations Conversation sponsored by The Nat Turner Library will be this coming Saturday, September 17, 2011: Once again an uninterrupted 5 minutes will be extended to Reparations Advocates to state what they expect will, or should come out of the John Conyers panel on Reparations. The first show was Sept. 10, 2011. It is available for listening on the archives at www.blogtalkradio.com – search The Nat Turner Library.
This will be the 2nd of four planned shows to document the efforts of John Conyers, as he enters the 3rd decade of Reparations advocacy. More than two decades ago he tried to get the U. S. Congress to study the question about the dastardly “Crime Against Humanity” that the United States government committed against African people. It was called a crime against humanity by the United Nations in the year 2001. But the Congress of the United States of America have refused to discuss the issue.
John Conyers has certainly introduced the bill each year, BUT he is clearly not a forceful advocate for Reparations. However, compared to his colleagues, he is “sterling.” Fortunately for Black people there is no statute of limitation for murder, nor for Reparations: so the U. S. government defensive plan against the prosecution of our case is to ignore the Great Issue of Reparations. They hope the victims of their crime will forget, give up, give in or die without educating the next generations.
But just as the legendary Reparations Advocates before our time, N’COBRA appears to be doing the job of passing on the torch to the next generations. Legendary Advocates like Queen Mother Moore, Founder of N’COBRA, Dr. Imari A. Obadele, and Hannibal Afrik, must be smiling in their new Unseen suits to see the likes of Kamm Howard command of the legal demand language for Reparations.
If the floor is opened up for questions at the John Conyers Forum, someone is bound to ask about the other way Victims of crimes against humanity have obtained Reparations. That remedy is called Expropriation.
WHAT THE CRIMINAL WILL FACE
IF LEGAL MEANS FAIL TO DELIVER FOR BLACK PEOPLE
The reason Nat Turner is such a permanent fixture in the hearts and minds of Black people is because he took the only avenue to Reparations Back in 1831. That was to expropriate the goods, money and other values, including the lives of the Criminals who owned chattel property called Black men, women, and children.
Nat Turner effectively “hit” and killed some of the White War Criminals whose latter day descendants are still enjoying the ill begotten wealth.
