Local Haitian leader, Pastor Diem "James" Duverlus, said one of the biggest problems is the media isn't re porting what's really going on in Haiti. "When the journalists come to Haiti, they don t talk to the people. They interview a spokesperson for one of the organizations that is supposed to be rendering aid, and get their story. "The problem is, the or ganizations that are supposed to be helping the Haitian peo ple are only getting rich." Pastor James said he has prepared a DVD to pre sent to journalists locally and in Haiti that will enlighten them on the real conditions the people are enduring. "We try to make sure the journalists have the true facts. "Most of the journalists and even those supposed to be rendering aid come to Haiti like they are on vacation. They pranced up and down our beache s, then check-in to one of our most luxurious hotels. They are spending a lot of money, but none of it is find ing its way to the people who need it." Pastor James said it's really frustrating that so much money is being spent, but not in the right places or on the right things. "I am amazed how much interest is being given to what's really going on in Haiti. I think the earthquake is old news now, and most of the journalists just aren't in terested. That's why they come like they are tourists in stead of journalists doing a job. "They need to take a true look and report what they can do to repair the damage that's been done." Pastor James said the damage he's talking about is not PASTOR DIEM all about "JAMES" the earthDUVERLUS quake. "A lot of damage has been done by outsiders looking to make money off the misery of the Haitian people. "I think every journalist needs to see the DVD I've put together, because the pro blems are still the same, espe cially the prostitution. Pastor James said he thinks the way to solve this problem is to get all of the or ganizations who are supposed to be rendering aid to Haiti to gether in one room. "If we can get all of the or ganizations together, then they can state their mission and give some accountability of the money they've spent and what they 've spent it on. Pastor James said the Haitian people are confused and don t know where to turn. "At least 95% of the funds intended to help the Haitian people is staying in the United States, instead of going where it's needed. Contractors are hired in the United States, paid in the United States, and when they get to Haiti, they pretend to do something, but when they leave, you see they've done nothing." Pastor James said now that Hurricane season has started, the people have no shelter or anywhere else to go. "That means more people will die, and it shouldn't be that way." Reporter Leon B.

So to the chil dren of the inventors of Jazz, June should be an opportune time to celebrate June as HIV Awareness and Testing Month. We have our reasons for saying so. Did you know that HIV is the third leading cause of death among Black men and women between 35 to 44 years of age? Consequently, every sexually-active African American should make certain he or she takes an HIVtest. Black Americans should be serious about HIV test ing, especially since Black folks account for 14 percent of the American population, but represent nearly 50 percent of Americans infected with HIV. According to the CDC, Black men account for 70 percent of all new infections among Blacks, while Black women represent 30 percent of all new infections. The rate ofHIV infections during the year 2000 increased by an unbelievable 48 percent among Black men, ages 13 to 29 who have had sex with other men. Elderly men and women (ages 55 and older} are also experiencing an increase in this disease. Although medical strides for the destruction of this disease are being made, HIV continues to be a night w mare in the Black community, which is all the more reason to be serious about HIV Day and HIV Month. a;;, would you rate the life that is used often states, 'here because one day we will all you lived while you were today, gone tomorrow'.

We also have an oblithink. S ince June is designated as "Black Music Month," and since Black folks have extensively influenced the world of American musical entertain ment, we will take a look at some of America's well known musicians and enter tainers this month. According to the Negro Almanac, "much of what the world at large considers uniquely American in the performing arts can be traced directly to Black per formers and to their her itage." Furthermore, even though Black entertainers were often excluded both as spectator and participant from those public places of entertain ment, which were the logical training grounds for any per former, entertainment was one of the few avenues of ex pression open to Blacks, be ginning with the early days of slavery. In fact, "The first stages for captive Africans were the open decks of slave ships." During the Atlantic slave trade, slaves were herded up on decks for exercise and were forced to sing and dance for the amusement of the ships' crews. As part of life on plantations, African traditions, rhythms, musical instruments and tribal dances fused with white folk tradition to form the basis for Black American enter tainment. Slave dancers, banjo players and drummers performed for the masters, and those slaves who were highly talented were hired out by their masters to enter tain on other plantations. Indeed, several Blacks and musical groups, such as Black Tom and The Canadian .Jubilee Singers achieved interna tional fame. Other Black American musicians who achieved national and inter national fame included Louis Moreau. a violinist and concert pianist; com posers R. Nathaniel Dett and J. Rosamond .John son. Among concert singers and artists during this era were Mora Batson Bergen, FJizaheth Taylor Greenfield, Buddy Bolden, jazz cornetist and founder of the first jazz ba n d in the 1890's and Scott Joplin, pianist and com poser. B y 1842 the first band of Black minstrels (black-f a c e with white lips trimmed in red) had formed in New York City and were touring Am e r ica and Europe under the su pervision of white managers. After the Civil War, Blacks formed their own minstrel and theatre groups, which played to segregated audi ences By 1891, female choruses had joined the previously all male shows. Shortly there after, musical artists Bob Cole and Sissieretta Jones (aka "The Black Patti") wrote and developed the first Black American mu sical, Black Patti's Trouba dours, which received international acclaim During this era, poet Paul Laurence Dunbar and mustctan Will Marion Cook collaborated on Clorindy: The Origin of the Cakewalk (another interest ing subject) to develop a mu sical based upon Dunbar's book. This musical made popular a competitive dance routine, the cake walk, which had its origin on Southern plantations and ended with the winners a cake as the prize. By 1900, Black music began to expand and entered the most prolific era of musi cal contributions, which we will share next week. Until then, "Harambee!"

C! Readers Comment On New Bond Hearing For Murder Suspect TRAYVON MARTIN Was Killed By GEORGE ZIMMERMAN A man charged with mur dering a 17-year-old teenager in February was ordered to turn himself in last Friday after the judge learned that he has a second passport and had not been forthright with the courts concerning his financial situation. On February 26th, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed while vis iting his father's fiancee in Sanford, Florida. George Zimmerman, a volunteer neighborhood watch mem ber admitted to shooting the teenager. After several weeks of con troversy a Special Prosecutor charged Zimmerman with second-degree murder in April. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester, Jr., had previously set a bond of $150 ,000 for 28-year-old George Zimmerman. According to the conditions of the bond, there were several stipulations in cluding Zimmerman sur render his passport. However, after learning that Zimmerman had a second passport Judge Lester revoked Zimmerman's bond. His attorney planned to seek another bond hearing before the judge. In response to the new in formation several readers re s ponded to the question: In light of the recent devel opments do you feel he s hould be released on bond again? Ms. Pat Spencer said, "In light of the fact that George Zimmerman, and his wife, lied about the mon ey h e h a d which is per jury, h e s h o uld not be re l e a se d on b on d again. "Fu rth er, t h i s s how s that he i s capab l e oflyi n g so h o w can we know that he did n o t lie about what happened the night he killed Trayvon Martin? "I pray that justice is done in this case, and Mr. Martin's death is not just an other Black man killed by a white man, who gets away with it. I have to add that we cannot continue to be silent about the deaths of our young Black men, some at the hands of other young Black men. We must begin to let our young people know that we love them and care about them." Howard Harris said, ''Yes Zimmerman turned himself in twice, but his bond should be increased. Tax dollars will not have to feed, house and clothe him until he goes on trial." Maurice Kemp said, "George Zimmerman was released from jail on the understanding that he would return for trial or forfeit his bail. Bail was granted be cause the court was per suaded to believe that he was not a flight risk. When Zimmerman lied about and/ or omitted infor mation required by the courts, he showed contempt I believe this lie and/ or omission was intentional and that he should not be re leased on bail again." Arthur Polite s aid, "Not being hones t a bou t hi s fi na n ces and withholding a second passport is a clear in dication that Mr. Zimmerman has made contingencies. If the bond was revoked in light of these circumstances, it should re main revoked because of these circumstances." Attorney Clinton Paris said, "A young man has lost his life and we are left won dering how something so tragic could happen. There is no place for lying by Mr. Zimmerman, if the trial is to be a valid administration of justice. "By lying to the Judge to obtain bail, Mr. Zimmerman has demonstrated he will do whatever is necessary to benefit himself. He lias perjured himself and pulled his wife into the lie, exposing her to criminal sanctions as well. As a penalty, Mr. Zimmerman should remain in jail until trial. "The prosecutor should review filing charges against his wife for helping perpe trate the lie. Danny Green said, "I think Zimmerman should stay locked up for lying to the judge. He should not get bond." James Ransom said, "We do not know all of the facts. However, unless we are m1ssmg some key piece(s) of evidence to ex cuse his action, the answer is under no circumstances should George Zimmerman be released on bond after lying to the judge about his inability to pay his legal fees. "On the contrary, his per-JAMES RANSOM jury is not just a lie under oath and contempt for the court he proved that he is ca pable of not telling the truth. Given what we know now, he should be penalized. "More significantly, he has shown no remorse or regret for causing the death of Trayvon Martin. If Zimmerman were right or wrong, he still is responsible for killing another human being and his action could have been avoided had he o;n not pursued Trayvon Mar-tin. "Justice must be served and the peaceful protests have been helpful. How ever, we must remember what Congresswoman Maxine Waters once said, 'No Justice, No Peace!'" g z m r m c: z m :New 'Date ...

Afterward, on television, Nicklaus called it the best shot he had ever seen. "The most unbelievable, gutsy shot I've ever seen," he said. "Look at the position he's in. If he's short, the tour nament is over. If he 's long the tournament is over. He hits in the hole."

Nil's Deshawn Stevenson Puts ATM Machine In His Home Brooklyn Nets NBA player DeShawn Stevenson just added a decorative item to the kitchen of his house, so he made the decision to pur chase an ATM machine. The ostentatious swing man tweeted a photo of him self donned in a snazzy outfit with a shot of his latest toy, a cash dispenser in the background, which seems to overwhelmingly take center stage in his kitchen. Stevenson, who is known for his very public battles with nemesis LeBron James, decided to install the contraption in his home after getting the idea from reality show celeb Rob Dyrdek.

But on Friday, Sullivan skipped school for the first time in his life, to meet President Barack Obama. Pres. Obama was in town visiting the Honeywell facility in Golden Valley, Minn Tyler's father, Ryan, had introduced Pres. Obama be fore his speech at Honeywe ll and approached the family after the speech. "F irst I said, 'Hi, Mr. Presi dent.' Then he says, 'Hi Tyler, you must be out of school then,'" said Tyler. Pres. Obama realized Tyler was skipping school, and asked an aide for a pen and a card with presidential letter head. "Do you want me to write an excuse note? What's your teacher's name?" Tyler re membered. "And l say, 'Mr. Ackerman.' And he writes, 'Please excuse Tyler. He was with me. Barack Obama, the president." Tyler has framed the note. ., Pretty cool and it's like r ob, I'm famous.

NEW YORK Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has withdrawn its membership in a conservative political group that has come under fire as part of the Trayvon Martin case, say ing it has strayed from its .core mission to advance free-mar ket principles. The group, the American Legislative Exchange Council or ALEC, is made up of a group of lawmakers and private sector officials and has become a lightning rod for po. litical debate in recent months. Wal Mart has b een a member since 1993. Liberal activists complain that ALEC, which has been around for nearly 40 years, They also point to some of the laws that ALEC has helped spread around the country, such as ID rules for voters and the so-called Stand Your Ground" self-defense law that's at the center of the Florida case in which teenager Martin was killed. Wal-Mart 's decision fol lows several other c o mpanies' withdrawal from the group, including Amazon. com, Coca Cola Co., Kraft Foods Inc., McDonald's Corp., PepsiCo Inc. and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Natlona Zimmerman Back In Jail, 2 Davs After Bond Revoked GEORGE ZIMMERMAN MIAMI George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volun teer charged with murder in the killing of Trayvon Martin, surrendered to police Sunday and was booked into a central Florida two days after his bond was revoked. Zimmerman,s legal team said in a tweet Sunday afternoon that he was in police custody. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester revoked Zimmerman,s bond on Friday, saying the defendant c and his wife had lied to the a: court in April about their LL finances so he could obtain a lower bond. About 40 minutes before the 2:30 p.m. Sunday deadline to surrender, the Seminole County jail website listed Zimmerman as an inmate. He was being held without bail and had $500 in his jail account, the website showed. Prosecutors said last week that Zimmerman and his wife told the judge at a bond hearing in April that they had limited money, even though he had raised about $135,000 through a website set up for his legal defense. They sug gested more has been collect ed since and deposited in a bank account. Defense attor neys say the matter is a mis understanding The judge said Friday he would schedule a hearing after Zimmerman was back in custody so he could explain himself. Benjamin Crump, an attorney for Trayvon Martin,s parents -Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton -said his clients have always said Zimmerman should remain in jail until trial. c :;::) t-Marvland Man Accused II Cannibalism Ranted OnFacebook w > w c w z i= w ...J ...J :;::) r:D ...J ALEXKINYUA Z ed of killing and eating parts of a man staying at his c( home ranted months ago 9 about "mass human sacria: 0 ...J LL fices" on Facebook, one of several details that emerged Friday in the second grue-some case of alleged canni balism in the U.S. in a week. Authorities say Alex Kinyua, 21, admitted using a knife to kill and carve up Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei Kodie, 37, before eating his heart and parts of his brain. The older man had been staying with the Kinyua family for about six weeks at co their townhouse in the """ Baltimore suburb of Joppatowne. c( The remains have been a. positively identified as Agyei-Kodie,s and a rela tive in the United States has been notified, according to sheriff's office spokeswoman Monica Worrell. No othe:J; charges have been filed against anyone else, she said. Both the victim and his alleged killer had attended nearby Morgan State University, a historically black university in Baltimore. Kinyua had just finished his junior year, and Agyei-Kodie was a gradu ate student who last attended classes in 2008. Both men were also originally from Africa; Kinyua, a U.S. citizen, moved from Kenya as a child and Agyei-Kodie was from Ghana. Investigators haven't given a possible motive in the slaying. In a separate case on May 19, police said Kinyua beat a man with a baseball bat on Morgan State's campus, fracturing his skull and making him lose sight in one eye Kinyua was free on $220,000 bail in that case. He is being held without bond on a murder charge. AI SharPton Helps Launch Campaign To EndHazinu ALSHARPTON AI Sharpton is joining civil rights leaders, and mem bers of black fraternities and sororities to launch an anti hazing campaign. Fueled by the death of Florida A&M University band member Robert Champion,s, members of the coalition announced Thursday (May 31) that the severity of the student's story moved them to take action. "We no longer can treat it as a series of isolated and unrelated sets of unfortunate incidences," said president of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc., Jimmy Hammock. Federal Blunders Enable ldendtv Then U.s. Rep. Kathy Castor is working with Rep. Rich Nugent on legislation to restrict the release of the Social Security Death Master File. Thousands of names, Social Security numbers and birth dates accidentally are released to the public every year by the U.S. government. The information is in the Social Security Death Master File, made public by the Social Security Administra tion and designed to include only deceased people. The file is widely available on the Internet and is known as a go-to resource for identity thieves. The master file erroneously adds information for about 1,000 living people every month, apparently due in part to data-entry mistakes. Information from living peo ple was documented in the file by government watchdog reports as far back as 2008. Still, the problem contin ues, according to the Social Security inspector general. "These errors can have serious consequences for the affected individuals," Inspector General Patrick P. O,Carroll Jr. said during a recent congressional hear ing. "That personal information can be used to obtain loans or credit to apply for government benefits or to assume a new identity." Crime suspects Sought In Armed Robberv BOBBY JACKSON Tampa Police have identi fied two men being sought for an armed robbery that occurred Friday morning. Police said Edward Smith, 49, was at a store in the 400 block of Floribraska at 10:53 a. m. cashing his social security check. According to the report, after Smith cashed his check and exited the store, two men jumped out of a vehicle, and pointed their guns at him, demanding his money. Police said Smith ran and the suspects got in the vehi cle and chased him to the 500 block of Floribraska where they robbed him. Officers arrived and searched the area for the STEVEN HARRIS suspect vehicle described as a white Dodge Charger. Within 10 minutes, officers spotted a vehicle matching the description with a female driver. After conducting a traffic stop, officers reported Steven Harris, 22, had just turned the car over to his mother. Detectives said they don't believe she was involved in the crime, and she is cooperating with police. Police are looking for Harris and a second man, Bobby Jackson, 22, on charges of aggravated assault. Anyone knowing the whereabouts of thee two men is asked to call Tampa Police.

Crime m Teen Wounded During Argument At East Talilpa Aoanment complex Tampa Police report that a witness reported seeing 15 to 20 Black males, possibly juveniles, engaged in an argument at the River Oaks Apartments, across from Robles Elementary School, in the 68oo block of Woodville Street Sunday night. According to the witness, several gunshots were fired in the area where the argu ment occurred. As the wit ness took cover he reported hearing several more shots. He then saw a group of Black males running away from the scene, police said. Police said several of the fleeing suspects tried to get into a vehicle that was parked on the side of the complex. They could not get inside the vehicle, so they jumped over a wall at the complex i nto the Waterside Island Apartments. When police units arrived on the scene, they found a 17-year-old on the sidewalk IIIIV l1sa1ng CEI/Preslde with a gunshot wound to the calf. Three parked vehicles were hit by bullets during the shooting. The victim was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Police said there were sev eral bystanders at the scene, and attempts to interview them were not successful. Police said the victim was also uncooperative and pro vided only a vague descrip tion of what happened. The vehicle the suspects tried to enter is described as a blue 2001 Nissan Maxima, 4-door, Florida Tag #1622HE. Police said because the victim and bystanders were not cooperative, they have not established a motive for the shooting. They also reported that police had been called to the complex twice this year, once for an auto burglary and on a report of criminal mischief. Suspect Sought In Shooting At GisStadon Tampa Police are asking for help in locating a man who shot another man after an altercation at a gas sta tion Saturday. According to the report, Gregory Finley, 25, heard his brother was involved in an altercation at the Mobil Gas Station in the 4200 block of Busch Boulevard. Police said Finley went to the station to check on his brother and when he arrived, he confronted a man who was armed with a hand gun. The suspect reported fired two shots, one of them strik ing Finley in the arm. The suspect then got into his vehicle and rammed Finley's vehicle three times before fleeing the area. Finley is reported to be in stable condition and the sus pect is described as a mid dle-eastern male in his mid 20s. en 0 Suspect In Four Robberies Has Similar i m Panern And Description Tampa Police Robbery detectives report that they are investigating a robbery pattern in the Westshore area where the suspect has a similar pattern and descrip tion.
