Watch Redistricting In Florida Closelv No doubt redistricting plans presently being plotted by Florida's House of Representatives and Senate will favor Republican political candidates since Republicans make up the majority of Florida's legislature. Nevertheless, we must admit, were Democrats in power, most likely redisC tricting would tilt the scales in their favor. fE Yet, we are more interested in how certain Florida disC tricts are being carved up and connected like a FrankenZ stein monster in order to maintain two seats that are currently held by Senator Arthenia Joyner and Representative Betty Reed. Regardless of how the districts are C being redrawn, we urge our readers to be very vigilant in f3 reviewing these plans and in insuring that Black people :::::) do not lose the opportunity to elect representatives. t-If you're interested, copies of these plans can be received by contacting our legislators or their delegation W offices. :j Black organizations aQd churches should also review c such plans and should provide feedback to RepresentaW tive Reed and to Senator Joyner, as well as, to the United i States .DeParbnent of Justice if necessary. :f Indeed, forewarned is fore-armed, especially when thoae arms threaten to reach into the ballot box.

Most certainly, this December will not only be remembered as the month Japan struck America, 70 years ago.

One would think that all Americans would be grateful for the Chief Executive who brought our soldiers home. But such is not the Surely, History will wonder why. But we know why. Few remember a lone Republican politician during the first of the Pacific Theatre of World War II who -even when Japanese bombers were murdering thousands of sailors and soldiers -continued to blame FDR for America's struggle with the Japanese.

JoeiiUIUSIUS Rogers 11880 -19661: lllhor, Joumallst ADd Historian Considered to be "one of the greatest popularizers of African history in the 20th Century," Joel Augustus Rogers was a successful, self-taught and self-pub lished historian who researched and wrote copiously about ilie history of Africa and ilie African Di aspora. Numerous books, pamphlets and media columns written by Rogers addressed ilie interconnect edness of all human beings and debunked ilie ilieory of racial inferiority. Indeed, Rogers ad dressed ilie historical signif icance of intermarriage between all eilinic groups, stereotypes about Blacks and white racial superiority. Born in Negri!, Jamaica to mixed race parents, Rogers .and his ten brothers and sis -ters grew up in a home where ilie importance of an education was stressed con tinuously. At the age of 25, Rogers immigrated to ilie United States and settled in Harlem, New York where he spent most of his life and died in 1966. Rogers became part of the Harlem Renaissance Movement and established friendships with many of the Harlem artists, intellectuals, and activists. In fact, his first book, From Superman to Man, was published in 1917 and addressed ilie issue of African inferiority and white supremacy. For a while during ilie 1920s, Rogers moved to Chicago, where he became a Pullman porter and a journalist for ilie Pittsburgh Courier and ilie Chicago En terprise. He also served briefly as an editor for the Daily Negro Times a newspaper begun by Marcus Garvey. Traveling throughout America and Europe and visiting libraries and museums practically in every major country and American city Rogers' research was sought after by many Black newspapers and journals. Among some of ilie newspapers and journals he served as correspondent for were the New York Amsterdam News, NAACP Crises .... Magazine, American Mer cury, the Messenger Maga zine and the Negro World. During World War II, Rogers became ilie only U S. war correspondent of color. By 1934, Rogers had developed and written a syndi cated newspaper cartoon en titled "Your History," which included brief facts about Black contributions to the world. Rogers began to publish a series of books, which presented important facts about people of African ancestry and included such works as 100Amazing Facts About the Negro: With Complete Proof, Sex and Race, and World's Great Men and Women of Color. On the subjects of race, sex, and color, Rogers pub lished Nature Knows No Colorline, and Five Negro Presidents, which examined how intermarrying and mis cegenation contributed to African ancestry among whites. Though criticized by many Black academicians because he was self-edu cated Rogers' iliorough re search, documentation and resources have yet to be re futed. In fact, some acade micians praised Rogers' work and research. An ex tensive bibliography and copies of his work can be found on line and in many bookstores. Rogers' wife, Helga, was one of his staunchest supporters. After his death in 1966, she continued to reprint, distribut'e and sell his books. In tlie 198o's Helga moved to St. Peters burg, Florida and openec} her home as a museum in her husband's honor. We honor the memory and the accomplishments of this Renaissance Man. Harambeel

Local State Rep. Proposes Bill To Combat Homelessness BETfYREED State Representative BY IRIS B.

Today h omeles s n ess n o t only affect s wome n but en tir e families. Man y chi ldr e n a tt e ndin g public school s are homeless. In a n e ff ort t o combat thi s e pid emic State Representative Betty Reed a n d State Senator Ronda Storms have filed bill s for th e 2012 Florida Legislation. T h e bills would ddtw attention to homelessness and create funding to help com b a t it. Many families have sud denly become homeless due to high unemployment and the foreclosure crisis Some families live in their vehicles House Bill 531 and Senate Bill1130 would allow Floridians to donate a dollar to programs targeting homelessness. The do nations would take place at the time of vehicle registration re newal and the renewal of driver s license. If implemented the legisla tion would generate roughly $1.5 million per year earmarked for homelessness. Rep. Reed said, "Children deserve hope and our help. I be lieve that Floridians want to help the homeless, and our leg islation to allow residents to make it easier to contribute to the cause of homelessness will bring needed hope to struggling Florida families." Similar legislation was ap proved by a bipartisan vote ear lier this year by the full Florida House of Representatives. How ever, it failed in the Florida Sen ate. If passed, contributions made through the Department of Motor Vehicles forms would be placed in a state trust fund that would assist Florida's Office on Homelessness. The Florida Office on Home lessness provides grants to local agencies serving the homele ss and conducts public awarenes s campaigns about the plight of the homeless in the state. We'll help you stay in control of your money. Even when life doesn't stay still. ,.< -4 c: m CJJ c }< c m (') m 3: Ill m :0 ..... (.,) 1\) 0 ..... .....

Sh e a cause that was crit ical to the welfare of the entire country, especia ll y African Americans. Ms. McClendon partnered with Positive Runway, a global organization that spreads the word about the war to prevent HIV I AIDS from spreading. Ms. McClendon was fortunate enough later to have met an African woman who was not only aware of the HIV I AIDS epidemic, but also has been impacted per sonally. Zoe Bakoko, a native of Uganda, was featured on an Oprah Winfrey show called "Moms Around The World." Ms. Bakoko, who already had a large family of her own, accepted 40 children into her home who had lost their parents in the war or to HIV I AIDS. "I used to work in Health Care Management," said Ms. Bakoko. "I came home one day and my house was full of children. My own children had taken them in, and told me the kids had nobody. They had been living on the streets. "What's really hard to be lieve is they had been li ving in my house for a month be fore I realized it. Ms. Bakoko said she did notice her food was going faster than usual, and at the time she didn' t know why. Now, she' s accepted the children as part of her family. "The children have really impacted my life and I've learned so much from them," said Ms. Bakoko. "They have really opened m y h ea rt. Ms Bakoko sa id s h e's on a campaign to help others, and that campaign has brought her to Tampa and severa l other places. "I lost a lot of my family members during the regime of Idi Amin," said Ms. Bakoko. Now, I realize how blessed I am. I have also survived a plane crash. Ms. Bakoko said she's blessed to have God picking her up all the time, so to say thank you, she tries to help the children and raise aware ness to the growing problem of HIV I AIDS. "Right now, we know it's mostly young people contracting the disease. The United States is ranked seventh with the number of reported cases around the world. "I've traveled to over so countries and I'm living in Chicago right now, but I'd lov e to run away and come to Florida I'm not accustomed to the cold weather here Ms. Bakoko said she hopes more people will get involved with the HIV I AIDS crisis and start educating our young people. "I appreciate having people like Ms. McClendon and Project Runway spreading the word. It takes a lot of resources to reach the people you want to reach, and I have been fortunate enough to gain support everywhere I g o. Investigation Halts Student Expulsions And Firing Of Band Director Several investigations into the death of a Florida A & M University Drum Major were being conducted simultaneously. However, after the F lorida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) began their probe, the others have halted. Robert Champion became ill after performing at the Florida Classic in Or lando. He died on November 191 h after h e was discovered unresponsive on the bus in front of an Orlando hotel. The young man was a native of Atlanta, and was 1 of 6 drum majors for the March ing 100 Rattlers. ROBERT CHAMPION Last week, FDLE asked the university to withhold any disciplinary action until the conclusion of its investigation. President ofF AMU of absence. More than one board member felt Ammons should be suspended pending the outcome of the investigation. Champion allegedly was a victim to hazing. However, it has not been determined if Champion was hazed because the criminal investiga tion to determine if foul play is suspected in his death is continuing. Shortly after the death, F AMU President James Ammons expelled four students and terminated Band Director Julian White. White's termination has changed to suspension with pay and the four students who were expelled have been allowed to return to class. Last Thursday, the Board of Trustees for the school de cided a public reprimand for President Ammons would better serve the university than placing him on a leave Ammons became president of the school in July 2007, and recently signed a new five-year contract. Ammons told the board that letters warning of band haz-., ing did not reach his office runtil after Champion died. Champion's family has notified the school t:4at they intend to file a lawsuit. m The members of Progress Village Seventh-Day Adventist Church Cordially Invite You To Join Us For Our 8GM 7909 Flower Avenue Tampa, FL 33619 Friday, December 16, 2011 Evening Service 7:00p.m. Saturday, December 17, 2011 Sabbath School 9:00a.m. Divine Hour 10:45 a.m. Guest Speaker: Pastor Henry Wright I.UA'M'U/11.0 fM 6)K" 0/NJ @lftHMJ" z ::! z m r-CJ c rrm ::! z "'tJ c CJ c C/) ::I: m c m < m -1 c m C/) c l> z c "11 ::c c

Sentencing Date For Dishwasher Continues His Kevin White Delaved Tradition Of Giving For 22nd Year KEVIN WHITE U. S. District Judge James D. Whittemore has granted an extension in a cor ruption case. Originally set for February 27th, Kevin White will learn his fate on March 12th. White, 46, a former Hillsborough County Commissioner, was convicted of bribery and conspiracy last month. A jury found him guilty of seven of the ten charges he was accused of committing. He faces a maximum of 5 to 15 years in fed eral prison. White was convicted of accepting bribes from tow truck company owners. The purpose of the bribes was to ensure placement on the tow ing rotation list provided by law enforcement. Th e charges stem from the time White served as the Chairman of the Public Transportation Com mittee as an elected official. The investigation began in 2009, and concluded when the FBI arrested White and a co-defendant in June of this year. DELWYN COLLINS ...

More than a dozen girls c from the high school team a: have been suspended and 0 face other sanctions for L! chanting the n-word in a reg-ular pregame locker room chant. Sophomore Tyra Batts said that her teammates would hold hands before the game, say a prayer and then s hout On e, two, three ni**ers The us e of the word came to light after Batts was sus pended for getting into a fight about the use of racial slur during practice. Although Batts was alarmed by the chant, s h e said that she was outnumbered and that the use of th e slur had been justified as a team tradition. The 15-year-old eventually exploded after a practice when a teammate called her a "black piece of (expletive). She says she got into a fight with the girl later in school Both girls were immediate l y given out of school suspen s ion s for the physical alterca tion, but after district administrators began to speak to each member of the team individually and in groups they discovered Batts struck her teammate in response to a racial slur. Following this revelation the entire team was suspended but Batts was allowed to return to school, according to a statement released by the school district. Oregan State Football Plaver Dies FRED THOMPSON CORVALLIS, Ore. Oregon State defensive tackle Fred Thompson died Wednesday night after he collapsed while playing basketball at a campus recreation center. Thompson, just fou r days shy of his 20th birthday, was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Corvallis, where he was pronounced dead. Thompson, 6-foot-4 and 317 pounds was a true fresh man from Richmond, Calif., who played at Oakland Tech High School. He was part of the 2010 recruiting class but delayed his enrollment until this January. He spent this sea son recovering from sho uld er surgery and was considered a grays hitt. Coach Mike Riley was on a recruiting trip, but was expected back at Oregon State on Thursday. Bucs suner Big Loss -In Jacksonville If Tampa Bay Buccaneer head coach, Raheem Morris, buried any concerns about retaining his job after this season, Sunday s loss certainly pushed the reality of that closer. The Bucs traveled to Jackso nville to face the 3-9 Jaguars, and started the game off like they were on a mission with a 14-0 lead. From that point on, the Bucs found a way to suffer their 7 th straight loss. The Bucs surrendered 41 unanswered points and allowed the league s leading rusher, Maurice JonesDrew, to visit the end zone four times. With six turnovers, it was inevitable that the Bucs weren't going to salvage a vic tory and must now take their 4-9 record and prepare for the Dallas Cowboys next week. The Bucs end their season against the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons. Quarterback Josh Freeman looked great in the first quarter but bombed out the rest of the game, being replaced in the fourth quarter by backup Josh Johnson. Not only was the loss painful, but because it was televised and the fans in Tampa watched it, the best way to describe the game was disastrous LeGarrett Blount gained 84 yards rushing, but like Freeman and a couple of other Buccaneers, fumbled the ball during a crucial drive. At this point, the Bucs need to bury this season, and start preparing for the 2012 season with hopes of first keeping Morris in the fold, and sec ond wishing they will be able to field a 2012 team more competitive than the young team they put on the field this season. Marlins Will Ask Jose Reves To Cut Hair DALLAS -The Miami Marlins signed Jose Reyes to $106 million contract because he is o n e of the best shortstops in the majors and they want to win the World Series. They love his bat, they love his glove and they lo ve his speed. But the dreadlocks? They've got to go. Like they did a few seasons back with Hanley Ramirez, the Marlins won't tolerate Reyes' shoulder-length hair. Team president David Samson said Wednesday JOSE REYES that Reyes will have to abide just like anyone else on the roster.

Sports Griffin's Reisman Trophv Win Helps To Transform Long-Suffering Bavlor ROBERT GRIFFIN III NEW YORK-Even after a record-breaking season full of last-second touchdowns and monumental upset_s, even after a week of pre-ceremony coverage in which his victory became increasingly inevitable, it was not until Robert Griffin III heard his name called and walked to the stage of Best Buy Theater on Saturday night that the once-unfathomable becom e reality. A Baylor football player has won the Heisman Trophy Howard, Magic Haven't Talked Since Trade Request DWIGHT HOWARD ORLANDO, FL Whether the-Orlando Magic and Dwight Howard wind up parting ways remains to be seen, and Howard said Sunda y that he is experienc ing a new silence with Magic general manager Otis Smith. Howard made a formal request to the Magic last week to be traded. While Howard participated in his third training camp practice Sunday, he said h e has n't spoken with Smith about where the progress of his r e quest stands. "He hasn t said anything to me since then," Howard said. Asked if it had been complete silence, he again responded: He hasn' t said anything to me." Howard acknowledged for the first time on Saturday that he had asked for the Magic the only team h e s played for in seven NBA sea sons to trade him. Smith previously granted New Jersey, Dallas and th e Los Angeles Lakers permi ss ion to talk to Howard's agent, Dan Fegan, about possible deals. The All-Star center is eligi ble to opt out of his current contract in July 2012. Tracv McGradv, Hawks Agree T r a c y McGrady has agreed to a one year, veteran minimum deal with the Atlanta TRACY Hawks. MCGRADY The 32-year old McGrady is a seven-time All-Star, but various physical problems have turned the once-dominant player into a part-timer. Last season, he averaged 8 0 points and 3.5 rebounds in 72 games for the D etroit Pistons, his third team in the past two years The courting of McGrady likely signals the Hawks don t expect to re-sign their top player off the bench Jamal Crawford, who has drawn plenty of interest from around the league. NBAPiaver Brandon Rov Retires Because Of Knees BRANDON ROY PORTLAND, Ore. -The Trail Blazers will not discuss reports that All -Star guard Brandon Roy plans to seek medical retirement because of his knees Roy, a five-year veteran who helped the team shed its Jail Blazers reputation, has been dogged by knee injuries and surgeries. He has said he lacks cartilage between the bones in both knees. Kobe Upset Bv Odom's Depanure For Dallas KOBE BRYANT And LAMAR ODOM EL SEGUNDO CA-The Lakers traded forward Lamar Odom and a second-round draft pick to the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday night for a first-round pick and an $8.9 million trade exception, capping Los Angeles stunning 72-hour breakup with last season's Sixth Man of th e Year. The Lakers and Mavericks reached a swift deal after Odom learned Thursday that Los Angeles was attempting to trade him in a megadeal for New Orleans s uperstar Chris Paul. After the NBA blocked that trade, Odom declined to repmt to the Lakers' op e ning day of training camp on Friday. Odom then request e d a trade in a meeting with general manager Mitch Kupchak, and the Lakers improbably swung a deal with the rival Mavericks, who swept Los Angeles out of the second round of last season's playoffs.

OWN Shins Anention To Its African American Viewers OPRAH WINFREY Executives at OWN think they may have found a way to salvage Oprah Winfrey's struggling network: B y cater ing more to an African American audience That may help ratings, but it would mean a dramatic shift and one that could put the channel at odds with Win frey's own brand. According to OWN president Erik Logan and Dis covery Communications CEO David Zaslav, the sil ver lining in an otherwise bleak performance record for the network since its launch last January is that it's per formi ng particularly well among its African Americans audience members-especially with a reality show called Sweetie Pies that pre miered in October. "Anytime you have a program that pops like Sweetie Pies did you start looking at what drove it," Logan said. "And we saw that the African-American audience really had a connection with that show .... We're going to look at ways to nurture and grow that."
