THE 2016 DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION, REV. JESSE JACKSON, “FORT NEGRO” AND FIXICO
HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH
This morning July 24th 2016, I was blessed to be able to be heard on REVEREND JESSE JACKSON’S “KEEP HOPE ALIVE” Sunday Morning National Radio Show, heard on Clear Channel WBON 1150 AM.
The topic was “What do you want to hear from the Democratic Convention? Reverend Jesse Jackson was preaching in Church this morning and the show was hosted by his daughter Santita Jackson.
Below is a paraphrased transcript of my call and comment:
” Good Morning, this July 27th during the Democratic Convention marks the bicenntenial of the Fort Negro Massacre. Fort Negro was an illegal U.S. police action, done at a time when “Black Lives Didn’t Matter”. We have made tremendous progress in America, President Barack Obama’s presidency attests to that. However, it should be brought up at the National Democratic Convention that Fort negro was a tragic taxpayer sponsored “Slave hunting expedition by U.S. military forces who were ordered to illegally violate Spanish Florida’s Territorial Sovereignty with a disastrous lost of innocent life. the victims were mostly African-American Maroons ,200 of them were women and children.
It’s important who becomes president. In 1816 the White House
ordered the military to “Destroy the fort and return the stolen negros and property to their rightful owners” . Call ends.
Below are a few links that bear witness to Fort Negro:
