C\,1 w CJ BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Activist, Ms. Michelle Williams, is focusing her at tention on West Tampa, par ticularly Main Street, and says in her opinion, the Black owned businesses are under siege. A new business on Main Street, Main Street Choice Restaurant, opened in De cember 2011, and quickly be came a community base place. At the restaurant, you could seek an application to seal/ expunge your criminal records, register to vote, fill out a housing application, and come in touch with homeless people seeking a hot meal and beverage. Jeff Hilaire said because of the police presence, he's had to shut his business down 2 hours early, and now customers are afraid to order their morning food. "Main Street is a business district, just like th Avenue in Ybor City. You never hear about residents calling in complaints of loud music coming from that area. So, how can anyone complain about loud music on Main Street when the residences are so far away? How do they know it's not a car passing playing the loud music? "Black businesses are al ways negatively impacted by these activities, and this con vention is no different. We think it's just part of a bigger plan." Hilaire said after a meet ing he and other Black busi ness owners convened last week, he has a better under standing of why there are so many police in West Tampa. "Thanks to Councilman Frank Reddick and JEFF HILAIRE Bishop Elect Michelle Patty, we all have a better understanding of what's going on and why. We know all of this is because of the RNC, and I respect that now that we know what's going on. "We were told we could do some onsite vending for the RNC, but mostly we were told to stay out of the way, be cause they are anticipating problems, especially from the Occupy group." Hilaire said they must be careful not to mix their pa trons with the Occupy group. "It's going to be tough get ting people to come onto Main Street with the added police presence. It's also going to be tough regrouping after the RNC is over. Once you've redirected people to other areas for food and en tertainment, it's not going to be easy getting them to come back after the convention is over. "It's important that all of the Black business owners in West Tampa get on the same page when it comes to our fu ture. The way things are going now, we're in a sink or swim mode, and it's every business for itself.

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Local barber George Smith said he's outraged over the comments made by City Councilwoman Yolie Capin, and said she has a lot of nerve talking about the people of West Tampa. "She's never really sat down with any of us, so I don't feel she should have been the person to comment on what's going on in West Tampa. That's the job of her colleague, Councilman Frank Reddick, because this is his district." Smith said he knows West Tampa will be invaded by thousands of protestors who will all gather at the Voice of Freedom Park. "Last Monday, there were almost 100 people at the park, and they had a live band and were serving food. Why are they allowed to con duct these kinds of activities in our community, when the police come in and shut us down for trying to do the same thing? "I've spoken with Mayor Bob Buckhorn on numer ous occasions at various functions about what's going on in West Tampa, and I feel we need to be respected by city officials better, because it seems to us the Occupy group is getting more respect than the residents. They have been allowed to do a lot of things residents and vendors have been told to shut down. Smith said if they aren't being invaded, then he's sure someone is trying to force them out. "There has to be some kind of statute that will pro tect us. These people have come into our community, and taken over. "If things were reversed, there's no way they would allow a group of African Americans to camp out in their community and do what these Occupy Tampa people are doing in our community. "I fear with the numbers of people increasing, there will be incidents You just can't mix people up like that, and expect them all to get along. West Tampa has its own unique issues to deal with, and we won't be able to focus on what we need to do to bring this area back to life if we have to deal with the Occupy Tampa group and law enforcement." Smith said as far as he's concerned, the Voice of Free dom Park has become a homeless camp, and the whole thing is very frustrat ing. "I think what may have started off as a good intention has gotten completely out of control. "It's clear to all of us that someone has plans for the fu ture of West Tampa that don't include us."

HOLTON Sentinel City Editor Several weeks ago, mem bers of a local organization planned summer events. One of those events was to take place at a local club in Tampa. However, the expe rience left the members and their guests drenched by the rain because they did not have access to the building. Ms. Janet Brooks, President and co-founder of the Black Women Business Owners, Executives, and Entrepreneurs (BWBOEE) said the organization had planned to host "The Summer Groove Jazz Cafe" at The Fox Jazz Club, 5401 W. Kennedy Blvd., on Au gust 19th. The event was scheduled from 4 p.m. until ?p.m. Ms. Brooks, who had never been to the club, said she arrived about 3:30p.m., because she wanted to be on hand to greet the guests and meet the management. However, when she ar rived, she discovered the door was locked and they did not have access to the facility. Ms. Brooks said that when someone from the club did arrive, that person did not have a key. She further stated that everyone was dressed for the occasion and when the rain started, there was no shelter. "It was a torrential rain and it just flooded Everyone was upset, but we are all professional women and maintained our cool." Ms. Brooks said that they were not the only ones out in the rain. She stated the club's chef and staff did not have access, either. "They were outside with us." Someone arrived with a key around 5:40 p.m., Ms. Brooks said, but by that time, the event was a disas ter. "No one was upset with us, and we apologized to everyone who had attended. Our guests were very good and tried to stay positive. It's unfortunate our organi zation didn't get to have our event as planned. I don't believe any of our guests will go back to The Fox." She further said that they had place a deposit on the facility and the deposit was returned. However, no one from the club had contacted her prior to the interview to explain what happened .or to apologize for the fiasco. "We were looking forwardto having a good time. People were still coming close to 6 p.m., and we would have had a large crowd. I don't see how you own or manage a place and not show up." On the bright side, Ms. Brooks said even with the disastrous results, five women who arrived to attend the event expressed an interest in joining the organ ization. Ms. Brooks said she heard the people who had planned an event after theirs had cancelled. "The professional side of me wants to give them the ben efit of the doubt and say that it was an honest miscom munication. But today is Thursday, and I still haven't heard from the club." Joe Robinson, who is a VIP member, attended the event said the rain began a few minutes before 5 p.m. "The sky became dark and the wind was howling. It must have been blowing 25 to 30 mph. We couldn't go to our cars because the downpour was too hard. "I directed the ladies under the canopy, but when the rain hit the gutters, we Mareus Boothe was the saxophonist hired for the "''be Summer Groove Jazz Cafe" event.

It was really bad be cause they were wearing ex pensive clothes and wearing $200 and $300 shoes for this event. Club Owner Responds When contacted by the Sentinel, the owner, Toby Oldham, told a different story. He stated that the group used a promoter who was aware that the club did not open for business until 7 p.m. Oldham said, "We are a very high end club and we don't mess up. I spoke with him on Saturday night to get a head count and he knew the time the club opens. I told him that I would open at 6 p.m. That is why my staff arrived at 5:30 p.m. "If I had known the event was from 4 p.m. until7 p.m., I would have told him 'no' because that would mean my staff would have had to work until 1 a.m. I want to get to the bottom of this. I want to meet with everyone at one time and discuss it." Everyone is getting wet. NelfS Alert: The Florida Law Slates That You May Be Entitled To $10,000 For Loss wages And Medical care ...

Oti ./ An American Timbuktu Prepares To Close Its Doors What do professional football players Alfred Jenkins, Charlie Bivins, Donte' Curry, Ezra Johnson, George Atkinson, Pulitzer Prize winner James McPherson, archi tect John A. Lankford, popular comedienne Lori Ann Ram bough, and Civil Rights activist Hosea Williams have in common? They are alumni of Morris Brown College. Private, coed, liberal arts college located in the Vme City community of Atlanta, Georgia and a member of the Atlanta University Center, Morris Brown College was the brain child of former Black slaves who sought to provide their children with a college education. Adopted in 1881 by the African Methodist Episcopal Church and named in honor of a late AME bishop, Morris Brown -whose mascot was the tenacious wolverine -was no stranger to notoriety, good or bad. Audiences worldwide thrilled to the intricate routines of Morris Brown's march ing band while football fans were wowed by Morris Brown's record-breaking athletes However, behind the scenes, something else was being broken. Morris Brown College fell from accreditation and plunged into a basement of fraud, scandal, and academic mockery. Meanwhile, students, teachers, administrators, alumni and supporters were abandoning that august insti tution like passengers on a sinking ship. In fact, we grieve the all-too-real possibility that Morris Brown College, currently on federal and financial life-sup port, may well have expired by the time you read this edito rial. But with institutions like F AMU also in peril, we feel we must respond to the questions, "Have America's Black col leges and universities outlived their usefulness? Are their days numbered?" In one voice, our answer to both questions is "NO!" Charlie Brown And HIV/IIIS W T oo many of our children are articulately ignorant. Been cause they know how to form a complete sentence, they believe they have beeome masters of complete a: thoughts. 0 In too many insta.lices, they are wrong. ;For example, wblle talking to our children about personal health and sexuality, what confronts many parents is the adolescent an swer, "I know!". Consequently, parental warnings "Just don't do it," or "Just say no," not only make no sense, but could in truth become a death sentence for children who have no ears. But it may not be their fault alone. It may also be our fault for attempting to make nursery rhymes out of life-and-death issues. All children need accurate and age-appropriate informa tion about their bodies, HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. Did you know that Florida has the second highest youth-infected AIDS-rate in the nation, while Louisiana has the distinction of ranking number one in the nation for HIV incidence among youngsters between 13 .and 24 years of age? Black people are disproportionately represented among persons who are HIV and AIDS patients. Furthermore, while all youth under the age of 25 account for 34 percent of all new HIV in America, Black youth account for 65 per cent of such infections. The answer is clear. It's time to talk turkey with our chil-dren. No more "Googoo-Gaagaah!" No more rap in the 'lit place of real rhetm;c. "Just sit your butt down and listen!" W If we don't tell our children the truth, they will die. And we will die. Call it "Self-Induced Genocide!" But we're not o;: falling for it. And Black America, neither should you. Blaas And The lemocradc Panv: 18&5 To 1932 Local businessman Joseph Jordan Robin son's recent defection from the Republican Party and re turn to the Democratic Party is reminiscent of the mass ex odus of Blacks from the Re publican Party beginning in 1932 when President Franklin D. Roosevelt im plemented the New Deal pro grams WQich brought economic relief to millions of Americans, including Blacks. Prior to that time, the Democratic Party had been one that condoned slavery, Jim Crow and opposition to voting rights for Blacks. In addition, most Southern states were governed by De mocrats. Since Abraham Lincoln and the so-called Radical Re publican Party had champi oned the end of slavery and had freed the slaves, Blacks automatically embraced the Republican Party after the Civil War through the Recon struction era and on into the WASHINGTON Presi dent Barack Obama said Mitt Romney has locked himself into "extreme posi tions" on economic and social issues and would surely im pose them if elected, trying to discredit his. In an interview Pres Obama said Romney lacks serious ideas, refuses to "own up" to the respOnsibilities of what it takes to be president, and deals in factually dishon est arguments thatcould soon haunt him in face-to-face de bates. Pres. Obama also offered a glimpse of how he would govern in a second term of di vided government, insisting rosily that the forces of the election would help break Washington's stalemate. He said he would be willing to make a range of compromises with Republicans, confident there are some who would rather make deals than remain part of "one of the least pro ductive Congresses in Ameri can history." In explaining his accusation of "extreme" positions, the president cited Romney's call for across-the-board tax cuts that Pres. Obama said would mostly helP. the rich at the expense of everyone else and cost the nation $5 trillion. Pres. Obama singled out Romney's opposition to tax credits for producers of wind early 20th century. Mass mi gration of Blacks from the South to Northern cities began the Black defection from the Republican Party. Indeed, the Compromise of 1877, also called the Hayes Tilden Compromise, ushered in the migration of Blacks from the South. Republican Rutherford Hayes and De mocrat Samuel J. Tilden were candidates in an in tensely disputed 1876 Presi dential Election, comparable to the Bush-Gore 2000 election Because Democrats con trolled the House of Repre sentatives and the Electoral Commission, Hayes agreed to remove the remaining fed eral troops from the South and to appoint a Southern Democrat to his cabinet in exchange for accepting Hayes as the duly elected president. As soon as federal troops were removed, Southern De mocrats immediately PRFSIDENT BARACKOBAMA energy, the kind of issue that carries large political reso nance in a battleground state such as Iowa. And Pres. Obama alluded to the provocative issue of abortion, suddenly thrust to the fore last week when Re publican Missouri Senate can didate Todd Akin said the female body has a way to "shut that whole thing down" when a woman is the victim of "legit imate rape." The Republican platform in Tampa calls for a ban on abor tion with no specific excep tions for rape or other circumstances. Pres. Obama predicted that Romney would not stand in the way if Congress gave him a bill that stripped away women's con trol over their reproductive health Romney is on record, however, as not opposing abortion in cases of rape and incest or if it will save the mother s life. launched a reign of terror tar geting Black people with dis enfranchisement, lynchings, segregationist laws, exclusion from legal rights enjoyed by whites as well as acts of vio lence. Thus, these intolerable environments influenced Blacks to move to Northern industrial cities. In 1912, Woodrow Wil son, a Democrat, ran for the office of President of the United States and promised Black Americans that he would take action on Civil Rights issues. Consequently, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and its leaders sup ported Wilson. However, he failed to deliver his promises, and Black returned to the Re publican Party s camp. Indeed, Blacks soon organ ized into a cohesive voting block on issues such as anti lynching and civil rights leg islation, demonstrating that they could influence the out come of elections. We would do well to re member the comments of Reverend Jesse Jackson when asked by a reporter years ago, what political party he supported. Jackson replied, "We support the plat form, not the party." By the way, what are their plat forms? Harambee! Black Republicans: lack 01 Romnev Outreach To Blacks shameful' By Joy-Ann Reid Mitt Romney's presiden tial campaign website in cludes a category for "Communities," under which you11 find nearly every kind of demographic group: "Catholics, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders for Romney," farmers and rancher;s, lawyers, Jewish and Polish Americans, veterans and military families, young Americans, even Hispanics, under the banner "Juntos for Romney" which may or may not be ironic given Rom ney's stance on "self-deporta tion. But one thing you won t find on the site: African Americans for Romney. And some Black Republi cans are not happy about it. "It's shameful, said one prominent Black, west coast Republican proclaimed but preferred not to use their name The source said they have been involved in Repub lican politics throughout the modern era," and said they couldn't recall a single GOP campaign that didn t include some formal attempt at Black outreach, particularly online.

Local c Tampa's Own Carolvn House Stewart Presents Young Hero With $10,000 ScholarshiP For His College Education Alpha Kappa Alpha's international president Carolyn House Stewart (right) and EAF Executive Director Barbara Sutton Oeft) visit Matthew Brown where they announce he is receiving a President's Scholarship from EAF. Promising student sus tained massive injuries while saving relatives' lives receives EAF Scholarship CHICAGO, Illinois -The Alpha Kappa Alpha Educa tional Advancement Foundation (EAF) contributed $10,ooo toward the college education of a promising young man who risked his life to save his relatives in a tragic hit-and-run accident. Matthew Brown, from Chicago Heights, Illinois who sustained massive injuries that resulted in his left leg being amputated, was offi cially presented the check by Alpha Kappa Alpha's interna tional president, Carolyn House Stewart during EAF s luncheon that was held during the Sorority's biennial meeting in San Francisco. The check is a "President's Scholarship" that Stewart presents to those whose heroism and achievements are extraordinarily remarkable. The Scholarship is being set aside for his college education and will be used to pay Matthew's college expenses at Prairie State College in Chicago Heights, 111inois where he plans to attend and major in criminal justice. In making the announcement, Stewart applauded Brown for his rare courage and will to continue to excel despite the massive injuries he sustained. The tragedy that led to Brown's hospitalization took place on March 17, 2012 when a driver came barreling down a Chicago street. Seeing that his relatives were in danger, Matthew pushed them out of harm's way. In committing this act of bravery and love, he took the full force of the impact. In the aftermath of this tragedy, his right leg was amputated. The tragedy was height ened because the driver never stopped and remains at large. He underwent several op erations and will continue to endure months of rehabilita tion. However, in a show of determination and indomitable courage, he worked, pushed and endured pain and grueling physical re habilitation so he could achieve his ultimate goal: to attend his high school gradu ation from Bloom Township High School just eleven weeks after his accident. As he mounted the stage in his wheelchair to receive his diploma, the audience erupted in applause. VVhen Alpha Kappa Alpha's international president learned Of the tragedy, she directed Barbara Sut ton, EAF's executive direc tor, to explore ways the Sorority could help ease his hardships and help him real ize his dreams. After talking to Brown and his mother, the pair indi cated that he wanted to real ize his dream to attend Prairie State College to pursue an associate's degree in criminal justice and to later earn a bachelor's degree. His ultimate dream is to become a crime scene investigator. VVhen they learned of his wishes, President Stewart and Sutton put plans in mo tion to grant the scholarship. As a show oflove, they visited with Matthew at Hope Children's Hospital in Chicago to announce the award and to wish him good cheer. They were heartened that he was in good spirits and that he was grateful for the scholarship that will substantially help in underwriting his col lege expenses. The formal announcement of the Scholarship was made at the Luncheon that 1,000 members of the Soror ity attended. Because of his injuries, neither Brown nor family members attended the lunch eon. However, they expressed their appreciation through a pre-recorded video. "Matthew Brown is the very embodiment of the word 'hero'," declared Stewart. "His singular act of courage has earned the admiration of all who have heard his story. By establishing this Scholar ship Fund, Alpha Kappa Alpha Educational Advancement Foundation, Inc. is helping to assure that he receives the assistance to attend college. Alpha Kappa Alpha will continue to follow his progress and will con tinue to be a source of uplift and support as he continues his journey to recovery. c Feds Obiect To Non-Jurv Trial For Woman linked en To Double Murder BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor On Thursday afternoon, Attorney Grady Irvin, Jr., filed a motion for a non-jury trial for a woman linked to the double murder of two Tampa Police officers.

APOIOUV OHered To Olympian on 1968 Black Power Podium In the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City, 200-meter sil ver medalist Peter Norman (1) stands on the podium along with gold medalist Tommie Smith and bronze medalist John Carlos. (r) CANBERRA, Australia An American athl ete who took part in a controversial black-power salute at the 1968 Olympics says an Australian parliamentary apology to silver medalist Peter Norman might have come too late. On Monday night, federal lawmakers in Canberra praised the "heroism and humility" of the late Australian sprinter for stand ing in solidarity with gold medalist Tommie Smith and bronze medalist John Carlos on the podium fol lowing the 200-meter race at Mexico City. Norman was later chastised at home for his stand, and reports sug gested that he was shunned f rom future Olympic selec tion. Carlos told Australian Broadcasting Corporation radio Tuesday that the disre spect, I think, mortally wounded him. I don t think he was as bit ter as he was hurt ... and I don' t think h e ever recov ered, Carlos said. Norman, who wore the Olym pic Proj ect for Human Rights badge as the Americans gave the Black power salute died of a heart attack in 2006 It was thought Nor man was punished for his involvement by being banned by Olympic officials for the 1972 Munich Games. However, a spoke-sman for the Australian Olympic Committee said Norman wasn t nominated for the Munich Games due to lack of form," which Norman had apparently acknowledged at the time. Norman later quit athlet ics in protest over his treat ment. Carlos, who with Smith was a pallbearer at Norman' s funeral, said there was no one in Australia who should be "honored, re cognized, appreciated more. He cited his humanitarian concerns, character, strength, and his willingness to be a sacrificial lamb for justice.


Sports Bucs Preseason Win Over Patriots Costlv; JoselhlostForseason DAVIN JOSEPH .. .lost for the season with a knee injury. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers prevailed 30-28 over the New England Patriots in their third preseason game, and final game at Raymond James Stadium before the regular season starts. The Bucs (2-1) still need to fine tune their offense, but quarterback Josh Freeman used his two new additions brilliantly. First round draft pick, running back Doug Martin, has made it more difficult for LeGarrett Blount to regain his start ing position. Martin scored a touchdown and rushed for 53 yards, while newly acquired wide receiver, Vincent Jackson, caught three passes for 49 yards. The Buc defense looked primed and ready, sacking Tom Brady twice, and rushing his throws on other downs. First round draft pick Mark Barron (defen sive back) grabbed an interception from a tipped ball by Ronde Barber, and returned it 22 yards for a score. The Bucs will enter their final preseason game against Robert Griffin, III and the Washington Redskins without the services of two-time pro guard, Davin Joseph. Joseph is lost for the sea son with torn patellar tendon in his right knee. He is expected to have surgery Monday.

George Zimmerman's Facebook page is no more. Mike O'Mara, the 28year-old's lawyer, has dis abled the page on the social networking site, which was used to update the public on the case-from the side ofthe defense. Instead of being an outlet for reaching out to support ers, the page turned into a forum to blast Zimmer man for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, 0' Mara announced Aug.22. According to O'Mara the page gave Zimmerman a social media presence for three months, but was rid dled with "diminishing re turns" resulting in debates over the former neighbor hood watch captain's guilt or innocence. After seeking out a "Stand Your Ground" hearing in hopes of having his second degree murder charge dis missed, Zimmerman's defense team is now object ing to the state of Florida's request for additional med ical records because "there as been no showing of rele vance, or that these records would lead to discoverable relevant information."

Foreclosure looming For One Of America's Oldest HBCUS: Morris Brown College ATLANTA One of the nation 's oldest Black colleges is facing foreclosure next month, and an auction of as sets is set for Sept. 4 Enrollment at Morris Brown College in Atlanta is down to about so students. In the past, the university has served more than 3,000 stu dents. Officials said the college is facing foreclosure after in vestors called $13M worth of bonds tied to the college.

Bans MU Male Students From wearing Braids And Dreads Hampton University stu dents have restrictions on what they can do with their hair. The historically Black col lege has banned its male MBA students from wearing cornrows and dreadlocks. The rule, handed down from Business School Dean, Sid Credle, was imple mented in '01, and continues to draw criticism. According to Credle, cer tain hairstyles are unprofes sional, and demeaning to Black history "When was it that cornrows and dreadlocks were a part of African-Amer ican history?" he said. "I mean Charles Drew didn't wear them, Muhammad Ali didn't wear them. Mar tin Luther King didn't wear them." Credle's goal is to con tinue to produce viable com petitors in the business world, and believes that out ward appearance is a very important part of success. "We've been very success ful," he said. "We've placed more than 99% of the stu dents who have graduated from this school, this pro gram. "What we do is pay tribute to that image and say those are your role models. This is a way you will look when you become president. If you're going to play baseball, you wear baseball uniforms. If you're going to play tennis, you wear [a] tennis uniform." NBC-Wall Street Journal Poll Reveals Stark Racial Divide A NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll illustrates a racial polarization in the electorate that poses chal lenges for both candidates. The poll showed Mitt Romney earning o% among Blacks, compared to Pres. Obama's 94%. And Rom ney trails among Hispanics by a margin of 63 to 28 to the President. But Pres. Obama, who earned 43% of the white vote in 'o8, is down to 40% now. And other polls have shown him hovering in the 38 per cent range, a number that would make it very hard for him to win reelection. These numbers explain both campaigns strategies. The Democrats' intense focus on the controversial abortion comments of Rep. Todd Akin, the GOP's can didate for the Senate seat in Missouri, could help them win white women, who favor Republicans slightly in most polls, but are in some ways the swing voters of this elec tion. The NBC poll showed Romney ahead by 19 points among white men, but only 8 among white women. Romney, on the other hand, has spent little time or money courting Blacks or Hispanics after taking strongly anti-illegal immi gration stands during the GOP primary.
