- Now that Two Days of Mourning the Death of Nelson Mandela is Over.......be It, Nelson Mandela or any Other Black South African President, Inequality Between the Races has Been Supplanted With Inequality from Black to Black!
- President Barack Obama, the First Black President is Definitely Incompetent, and It is Amazing that So Many U.S. Born Black Men and Women Continue to Admire and Respect this Charlatan U.S. President!
- No other U.S. President in the History of the U.S. would be meeting with Illegal Aliens. Illegal Alien's don't have the Right to Vote, and Elected Officials are not Mandated by Law and Sworn Under Oath to Serve Illegal Aliens!
- No other U.S. President and/or First Lady would be meeting with Illegal Aliens. Illegal Aliens are not Citizens, and Can’t Vote. Elected Officials are not Under Oath to Serve Illegal Aliens.
- Typically, the Black community is being controlled and is allowing itself to be ruled by a bunch of university educated fools.....step-n-fetchit....treasonous spinless charlatan sleazy Black misfits!
The LA Times Failed to Mention that Mayor Wilson Goode authorized the Philadelphia Police Department to fire bomb Move, un-American activity that destroyed lives, and the private property of other law abiding citizens!
“Michael Moses Ward dies at 41; sole surviving child of MOVE bombing” He was a 13-year-old known as Birdie Africa during the 1985 bombing of the militant group's compound by Philadelphia police.” -Times wire services, September 25, 2013
The above Los Angeles Times Article fails to include the fact that former Mayor Wilson Goode authorized and gave the order for the Philadelphia Police Department to fire bomb Move, un-American activity that destroyed lives, and private property of other law abiding citizens.

Mayor Goode later said it wasn't a bomb - it was a "percussive device." He said he would never have approved dropping a bomb - seeing that police had seen MOVE members placing gasoline on the roof of the house some days before the confrontation. The city's arrest warrants against MOVE had mentioned the danger from gasoline, ammunition, and other inflammable materials believed to be inside the house. The mayor claimed the plan had been to blow open a hole in the fortified roof so that tear gas could be inserted there. But the entire facade of the house has already been blown off and tear gas had already been unsuccessfully used in an attempt to force MOVE out. Whatever the mayor's plan really was, Goode acknowledged that he "knew from the very beginning that once we made that decision to go in there, it would in fact be war."

“Michael Moses Ward dies at 41; sole surviving child of MOVE bombing”, He was a 13-year-old known as Birdie Africa during the 1985 bombing of the militant group's compound by Philadelphia police.” -Times wire services, September 25, 2013
Michael Moses Ward, one of two survivors of the 1985 bombing of the militant group MOVE in a Philadelphia neighborhood and the only child to make it out alive, has died at 41.
Ward died aboard a cruise ship in the Caribbean, according to the Brevard County, Fla., medical examiner's office. His body was found in a hot tub Friday, and he appeared to have drowned, investigator Craig Engelson said Wednesday.
Ward was a 13-year-old boy known as Birdie Africa when Philadelphia police, trying to dislodge MOVE from its fortified urban compound, dropped explosives on the roof. The bombing killed five children and six adult members of the group and ignited a fire that destroyed 61 row homes.
Ward, who ran naked from the burning compound, was the only child to survive the bombing, and Ramona Africa, then 29 and known as the group's "minister of communications," the only adult. His mother, Rhonda Africa, was among those killed in the siege.
The incident left Ward with lifelong burn scars on his abdomen, arms and face.
He had no contact with MOVE from then on.
Ward was born Dec. 19, 1971. His original name was Olewolffe (Arabic for "prince") Ward, he said. He became Birdie Africa after his parents split up and his mother joined MOVE. After the disaster, he went to live with his father, Andino Ward, who changed his name to Michael Moses Ward.
In a 1995 interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, Ward spoke of his life with MOVE, of being forced to live on a diet of raw vegetables and fruit while the adults ate hearty cooked meals, of being denied schooling and neighborhood playmates, of stealing toys and burying them in the compound.
"I'm still afraid of them, of MOVE," he said in 1995. "Some of the things that went on there I can't get out of my head, bad things."
But that was the life he had always known. His earliest memories, he said, were of growing up at a MOVE commune in Virginia.
He said that his mother tried to leave MOVE but that threats to her and him made that impossible. Instead, they lived in fear of everything: police, the neighborhood and MOVE founder John Africa.
"The only regret I have is about me being hurt and my mom dying and the other kids," he said. "I feel bad for the people who died, but I don't have any anger toward anybody. See, I got out."
Ward went on to recover from his injuries, play high school football and serve in the Army.
A 2005 profile in the Philadelphia Inquirer said he was a truck driver and divorced father of two living quietly in the Philadelphia suburbs.
In an interview with the newspaper, Ward reflected on the MOVE disaster.
"I think about it from time to time, but I don't dwell on it," he said.
His father said Wednesday that Ward had put the past behind him.
"He was great; he was doing well," Andino Ward said.
Ward's body was found on the last day of a family cruise. Officials in Florida are awaiting the results of a toxicology test before determining the cause and manner of death.

Indeed, Attallah Shabazz, it really matters to stand for something.
“If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.” – Malcolm X quote.
The FBI, the CIA, the U.S. government, the Philadelphia Police Department, any other policing authority cannot make any elected official, law abiding private citizen or organization who or that truly stands for something worthwhile and honorable, authorize the police to take the life of another law abiding U.S. citizen or legal immigrant, children all inclusive, and/or use fire bombs to destroy the homes of law abiding U.S. citizens.
An individual of good moral character, backbone, and who stands for anything constructive would not authorize the Philadelphia police or any other policing jurisdiction to fire bomb residents that results in the death of innocent children, and destroys the homes of innocent neighborhood residents.
Former Mayor Wilson Goode's contempt for the Oath of Office, the Constitution, and the Constitutional rights of law abiding Philadelphia home owners contributed to the wrongful death of innocent children and residential property damage of the people of Philadelphia.
