The stench is so foul that it promises not only to pinch local and regional noses, but pledges to plug international nostrils as well. Here's the deal. Just prior to the upcoming presidential election, the State of Florida plans to purge thousands of registered voters from voter registration rolls. Voter registration and civil liberty groups smell it and have voiced the fact that they believe this new State Government Stink will target Democrats, Latin-}Jispanics, and Black voters. Seemingly impervious to the odor, and claiming their maneuver is an ultra-modern search for non-citizens, what Florida's Division of Elections is in fact using is an outdated database, which almost guarantees a tractor-trailer load of errors and oversights. Is the world surprised? Florida's serpentine history of suspicious election tactics targeting minority and outside party voters stretches all the way back to 1876 when Rutherford Hayes (a Republican) promised Southern voters that a vote for his party was a train ticket for every remaining Union soldier to leave the occupied American South in vengeful Southern hands. First to go would be the hard-fought right of Black folks to vote, a tradition, which included stuffed ballot boxes, grandfather clauses, white primaries and ultimately 20th century voter registration purge. w So, forgive us if we smell a rat. After all, as far as presCJ ident shenanigans are concerned, the State of Florida is also known as "The Cheese Factory." are killing parents, parents the television doesn't trum-other race of people. are killing children, neigh-pet a Black in court, being Those Blacks of good bors are killing neighbors tried for murder.

L ast month on April 6th, New York City cel ebrated the 3001 h anniversary of the 1712 New York City Slave Revolt, which occurred on the night of April6, 1712. Even though the state played a major role in the Abolitionist Movement, New York City remained a major slave port, and slave masters were said to have treated slaves harshly and provided poor living conditions, in cluding starvation situa tions. At least 20 pe r cent of the city s population was slaves ferried from the West Indies. Enslaved Blacks lived in close proximity to each other on the northern edge of New York and worked among free Blacks. These conditions were ripe for planning a re bellion because of the ease of communicating with each other. The most interesting as pect of the rebellion was that African slaves, poor whites, and Native American slaves were involved in planning and carrying out the revolt. Most slaves were skilled workers, carpenters, stone masons, fishermen, and boat builders because there were no plantations. At midnight on the night of April 6, 1712, a group of slaves, armed with guns, hatchets and swords, set fire to two white landowners' buildings on Maiden Lane (near Broadway). When whites came out of their homes to fight the fire, the slaves attacked them, killing nine whites and injuring scores of others. The rebelling slaves had hoped that other slaves would join the revolt and kill their white owners. Three slaves, Caesar, Prince, and Kofi, John Hughson (a white tavern owner and cobbler) and John Ury (a teacher and suspected Catholic priest and Spanish spy) were charged with instigating the plot. After the state militia was brought in to quell the revolt, 160 Blacks and 21 whites were arrested and jailed. At least 6 slaves com mitted suicide before they could be arrested. Though the figures differ depending on the source, 44 persons were placed on trial; 17 Blacks and 4 whites were convicted and hanged; 13 Blacks were burned at the stake; one pregnant woman was convicted, but was al lowed to live; 70 Blacks were banished from New York, and 7 whites were deported. Among those hanged were 5 Spanish Blacks, who had been sold into. slavery be cause of the war. After the rebellion the lives of Blacks were re stricted by harsh slave codes enacted by the New York Legislature. Blacks were not permitted to gathe r i n groups of more than three, to carry firearms, own prop erty, gamble, or to be on the street after dark. Slave owners were also granted the right to punish slaves in any way the slave owners saw fit, as long as they didn't kill or maim the slaves. However, if a owner decided to free his slaves, he was required to pay a 200 pound tax on each freed slave, which included 20 pounds to be given to each freed slave. Two slaves who named all of the participants in the re bellion before being burned at the stake and an inden tured servant to John Hughson, Mary Burton, played significant roles i n the arrests and convictions of participants in the reb e l lion. Now New York wears the face of slavery and aboli tion, two tales of a state and a city. At least three novels tele vision documentaries, journals of court proceedings, trial transcripts, witness depositions, and a journal by the prosecuting attorney, Daniel Horsmanden, provide interesting reading and accounts of the 1712 Slave Revolt. This story is so interesting and impressive that in the future you may be able to see this revolt play out at a movie theatre. Harambee.

WEDNESDAY THURSDAY FRIDA Y M A Y 23RD 25TH 07 P.M. NIGHTLY


Pastors Speak Out Against Same Sax Marriage I think it is time for Pastors to speak loudly and clearly about Same Sex Marriages. Far too often pastors have waited until it's too late and because we wait, individuals are left to conclude that we are in agreement; we are not. The truth is that, Tampa Pastors are appalled at the position of President Barack Obama on Same-Sex Marriages. We disagree with our President. He is wrong. We do not believe that same sex marriage is a question of what is right, it isa question of what is wrong. What is wrong with same sex marriages is the same thing that is wrong with our society. We keep trying to get around God. We want everything that is good while doing everything that is wrong. Marriage by definition is a union between one man and one woman. Genesis specifically states that when God saw that everything be bad made was good. He also recognized that "it is not good that the man should be alone." God then "made a woman and brought her unto the man." In the beginning, God did not make Adam and Steve, it was Adam and Eve. Marriage between a man and a woman was designed to propagate the species. Same sex mar-riage does not propagate it, it destroys it. Much has been written about the church being divided over this issue, but the Church is not divided. However, I believe that there is division among so-called ministers who are divided because they have failed in their exegesis of God's word not because of Theology, but because of Ideology. Elder Charles Davis of the College Hill Church of God In Christ said: "I am not a one-issue person. The President bas a right to choose for whatever reason. As pastors, we are not interested in the political issues; we are interested in the spiritual issues. I think all pastors should serve notice on everyone we come in contact with that same sex marriage is a sin and all sin is an abomination to God. This is absolutely wrong. Adulterers have a right to commit adultery, but it does not make adultery right." Archbishop Clarence Davis of Joy Tabernacle Cathedral Church said: "I believe the President bas the right to choose and I have the right to disagree with his choice. Same sex marriage is wrong. In this country, we have a right to make our choices even if it is the wrong choice. The problem we have is that we are living in the last days. The Bible in 2nd Timothy 3:1-3 says: "This Progressive Missiona !Jl:nniversarg of Pastor Albert Gallmon, Jr. & La_dy Wilma Gallmon know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, un natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, innocent, fierce, despisers of those that are good." Same sex marriage is wrong and if we want to know how God feels about same sex marriages, we should read about what he did to Sodom. Genesis 19:24 say that be destroyed the city. Same sex marriage is a sin and it will be destroyed. Let me be clear, I do not believe that same sex marriage will be a referendum on whether or not the Black Community votes for President Obama. The Black Community as a whole will vote for him, even some social conservatives. Also, as a whole the Black community supports the Democratic Party, even though we disagree with their position on abortion. This only proves that we are not a one issue people; we believe that overall the President bas performed exceptionally well, in spite of the difficulties of an obstructionist Congress. I believe in our President and I am still supporting him. REV. DR. W. JAMFS FAVORITE REV.

Sports High School Basketball Star Jabari Parker Touted aest Since LeBron' JABARI PARKER Simeon junior basketball player Jabari Parker has high expectations. The country's No. 1 recruit graces the cover of Sports Illustrated this week and is being called the ''best since LeBron". Even with all the talent in the world, the star on the rise has a difficult decision to make because of his religious beliefs. The Sun Times has the story: If Simeon junior J abari Parker wasn't feeling the pressure of being the No 1 basketball recruit in the country, he might now. Not only has Sports Illustrated placed the hoops prodigy on its cover this week, but they call Parker "the best high school player since LeBron James." Serena savs She Doesn't want To Be A Rapper SERENA WILLIAMS Serena Williams should make some cuts to her inner circle. The tennis star's attempt at rapping hit the 'Net last week, and while rumor has it that she 's seri ous about pursuing a music career, the Compton native is crying foul According to Williams, the whole thing was ( thank fully) a joke, and the song found its way online thanks to a not-so-loyal friend. During a press conference in Italy, the 30-year-old explained why the public was subjected to her lyrics. I was in the studio with friends and I wanted to do something and so they said do this and it was for me, she said. "The next thing I know -that was one or two years ago and then I read online that I was a rapper and so m y backstabb ing friends did that to me and so if I see them, I will act like a rapper if you can get my drift." Kobe Criticizes takers About Gasol Trade KOBE BRYANT PHOENIX Kobe Bryant lashed out at Los Angeles Lakers management Sunday night for leaving teammate Pau Gasol won dering whether he 's about to be traded. In a postgame monologue punctuated b y a couple of profanities, Bryant said the Lakers either need to trade Gasol or come out and say it won t happen. Bryant's comments came in the aftermath of a 102-90 loss at Phoenix on Sunday night. He said he doesn't want Gasol to be traded but it's unfair for his teammate to try to play when he doesn't know if he'll be somewhere else the following day. As Bryant put it: "If they're going to do something, I wish they would just ... do it. "Listen, he's been the consummate professional ," Bryant said. He's going out and he' s trying to do what he can. But let s be real. If you didn't know you were going to be here tomorrow, if. your head s on the chopping block and you feel like you're just waiting, it's tough to put all yourself in the game. Jets Agree With SBeiiOn 1-Yearoeal YEREMIAH BELL NEW YORKYeremiah Bell is joining the other side of the Dolphins-Jets rivalry. A person familiar with the deal sa id the New York Jets and the veteran safety agreed to terms Friday on a one year contract worth $1.4 million Seth Jones The Best Under-18 SETH JONES Black hockey players don't seem to c ome around that often. When they do, general ly they're not American born. Professional hockey has an air of racism attached to it as we saw in this past season that began with a fan in New York throwing a banana on the ice as Philadelphia Flyers' Wayne Simmonds (the only Black player on the team) was attempting a penalty shot and ended with an onslaught of racist tweets from Boston fans angry that a nigger" ended their season after the Washington Capitals' Joel Ward scored the game-winning goal in overtime to knock the Boston Bruins out of the playoffs. That's what makes this story so compelling. Seth Jones, a Black American, is the hottest under-18 hockey player in America right now For the last two years he has played with the U .S. National Team Development Program. In 48 games with the Under-18 team, the 6-foot-3, 200pound defenseman had six goals, 20 assists and only 18 penalty minutes. He also won his second straight go l d medal at the World Under-18 Championship in the Czech Republic this past April. Not only was he co-captain of that team, he had three goals and five assists in six games. Those eight points ranked him second among all defensemen at the tournament and second among all U.S. players ...------------------...... -BEAUTY UNUMII ED SANDRA When special requests come to us, we are more than happy to oblige you, so we're bringing back Sandra by popular demand.

Nationa Crime 0 NAACP Backs Same-Sex Marriage As Civil Right I ROSLYN M. BROCK The NAACP passed a res olution Saturday endorsing same-sex marriage as a civil right and opposing any efforts "to codify discrimination or hatred into the law." The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People' s board voted at a leadership retreat in Miami to back a resolu.......... CED/Presldelt tion supporting marriage equality, calling the position consistent with the equal protection provision of the U.S. Constitution. "The mission of the NAACP has always been to ensure political, social and economic equality of all people," Board Chairwoman Roslyn M. Brock said in a statement. "We have and will oppose efforts to codify discrimination into law. Same-sex marriage is legal in six states and the District of Columbia, but 31 states have passed amend ments to ban it. The NAACP vote came about two weeks after President Barack Obama announced his support for gay marriage, set ting off a flurry of political activity in a number of states. Pres. Obama's announcement followed Vice President Joe Biden's declaration in a television interview that he was "absolutely comfort able" with gay couples mar rying.

Evidence Mired For Zimmerman Sell Defense Prosecutors in the Trayvon Martin case released a stash of evidence to the media, making public hundreds of pages of witness testimony, medical reports and photos. George Zimmerman was hurt and a few neighbors told police he was a bul lying racist. Martin, mean while, was shot through the heart and had traces of marijuana in his system. Autopsy results show that Martin died from a bullet shot at very close range -between one and 18 inches away. He also had a scrape on his finger that might indicate some punches being thrown. As far as witness statements are concerned, it was reported that tlie new batch of evidence makes it clear witnesses aren't to be trusted. They variously heard only Martin scream for help and only Zimmerman cry for assistance. Some heard two shots, but only ene was fired. No one saw the full conflict leading up to the fight. The two most interesting interviews in the new evi dence come from neighbors who called police after the shooting. One woman said Zimmerman started fights and does not like Black people. Another man who worked with Zimmerman said he'd taunted him with a skit called "Achmed the dead Terrorist."
