Hooray and Hallelujah,

Today is April 28th, 2017 and on Carl Nelson’s “Big Show” it’s: “Open Phone Friday”. People are calling in from across the country and around the world.  The award winning Host Mr. Carl Nelson as usual is working his magic. Anyone can talk about anything but one hot topic for this week is a comment made by “POWER TALKER” Dr. Umar Johnson  earlier this week. The extremely popular Dr. Johnson said that he could never trust a Black man who married a White woman. He added that a Brother with a White Wife could never have “Black Consciousness”. The calls poured in, after a caller from California challenged Dr. Umar Johnson’s position in no uncertain terms. He essentially said “What business is it of his”, referring to Dr. Johnson.

Carl Nelson’s listening audience is in part composed of many of the greatest Black Scholars in the world. He had asked me to update the show about my efforts to help influence a  “New” Cultural Renaissance . Below is a transcript of my call into the show:

“Greetings Brother Carl, I have for some years advocated for a Cultural Renaissance, similar to the Harlem Renaissance, except instead of using the “New Negro” as the role model, that we should use “Indigenous and Maroon Freedom Fighters”. Well it appears that it is here, at last . It has been ignited by the recent rise of “People of Color” embracing the concept of Aboriginal Blacks as the 1st Americans. This , I think is finally giving African-Americans their “EMOTIONAL COMING TO AMERICA”.

“Concerning Dr. Umar Johnson and the other gentleman, we have to make room for both opinions but I don’t believe that we can , at the end of the day, advance Humanity by using Race. Hitler proved that”.

“However by using Culture, being traditions, customs and habits that govern our behavior, some of us can find “COMMON GROUND” with people who are different  than ourselves”

Carl Nelson speaks: “Thanks for that Fixico”. Call ends.

Honor and Respect, Phil “Pompey” Fixico, Seminole Maroon Descendant
