SHOULD THE BLACK CONSCIOUS COMMUNITY WELCOME “OMAROSA” BACK ? “FORT NEGRO’S” FIXICO…SAYS YES !

Today is August 17th, 2018, it’s 4:15 pm here on the West Coast. The weather is well past being “Teasin’ Warm”…it’s HOT ! Let us pray for the world that we all live in.

I couldn’t call into the Carl Nelson show today for “Open Phone Friday” which is my custom .  However, I listened to the calls, many of them were discussing, if they would allow OMAROSA to attend their family’s “Backyard Cook-Out”, a majority of the callers who addressed this topic , said “NO”.

I say “YES”, here’s why.  My Indigenous and Maroon Ancestors were in and around “Fort Negro”. My Bruner Ancestors were ‘Red Sticks” from Alabama, my Bowlegs Ancestors were Seminole Maroons from Alachua, Florida and my Mikasuki Seminole Fixico Ancestors were from Fowltown, Georgia. They had an alliance with the Blacks and Indians at St. Marks and at the “Negro Fort. “Fort Negro” was where a beseiged  group of Maroons and Indigenous people were surrounded by the U.S. Army, Navy , Marine Corps and their Indian Allies. The defenders consisted of a little over 300 people 200 of them were Black women and children, the remaining force was made up from about 30 Seminole and Choctaw Indians and the rest were Black Male Maroons, many of them had been members of the Black British Corps of Colonial Marines. They were promised their FREEDOM if they fought on the side of the British during the War of 1812.

Great Britain during this Napoleonic Era had more pressing military issues in Europe, so they cut their losses in America and returnd to Europe to deal with Napoleon. They left the remnants of the Southern Colonial Corps of Marines in charge of a fully stocked fort, to the Maroons and Indians that didn’t leave with others who would take up their offer of Freedom in some Caribbean British controlled colony.

So what does all this have to do with “OMAROSA” being welcomed back into the fold. Well, I’ve said before that a Maroon is someone who : Escapes from Slavery, forms an alliance with the environment or another group of people, they then in alliance turn and fight their former enslaver…and win. They then maintain their Freedom which is sometimes recognized by land, a treaty or in the case of Haiti, they win a country.

OMAROSA’S experience was somewhat similar to the pathway to becoming a Maroon. Her life seems to have lead her ( by choice or circumstance ?) into being ensconced within the world of her potential oppressors. She escaped by choice instead of remaining within that camp. She now after forning new alliances  turns to fight her former allies. I dare say that “OMAROSA” can never return to her former benefactors.

As a Descendant of those warriors who were in and around “Fort Negro”, I say that if she wants to fight her final battle among the combatants of the contemporary version of “Fort Negro”…then let her in, at a minimum she is an “INFORMED ALLY”.  Where else does she now have to go?

“OMAROSA+MAXINE” FOR 2020 POTUS ?MOLLIE BELL, CARL NELSON WOLDC NEWS AND “FORT NEGRO’S” FIXICO

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH

Today is August 16th, 2018, it’s 6:02 am Pacific Standard Time and the sounds of the South Los Angeles waking up and starting it’s day are drifting up at all points on the compass. Let us pray for those people around the world who are less fortunate than ourselves.

Yesterday, Thursday Human Rights Activist Mollie Bell was Carl Nelson’s featured guest and the topic was about “OMAROSA”. Below is a transcript of my call into the show:

“Greetings Brother Carl and Mollie Bell, I love you both. As a youngster all my heroes were Pimps and Hustlers. My mother even bought my name from “Pretty Johnny” the Pimp (my mother  who was legally married to Johnny Wilkes AKA “Pretty Johnny” was pregnant by a married man and needed  a last name for my birth certificate. The agreement was if Johnny Wilkes who was incarcerated allowed her to give me his name she would take care of him while he was in jail. This was the reason for my identity crisis.)   As my life went by the one thing that I learned, is that a “Pimp’s Bottom Girl”…his “Mechanic” will always, when the pimp get’s “comfortable or loses a step”…turn him into a TRICK ! CASE CLOSED…END OF STORY… NEXT DEFENDANT”.

Carl Nelson responds: “Fixico what are you saying” !!

Fixico:  “What I’m saying is that they both are guilty. When a Pimp has schooled his # 1 Girl so well over the years, that if he keeps her around too long and she gets a chance she will””Make a Trick out of the Pimp”. Call ends.

Regarding my reference to a Omarosa Manigualt Newman /Congresswoman Maxine Waters presidential candidate team. I have for sometime now in past Blogs inferred that America could be looking at a 16 year Trump Presidential Dynasty, which would include two terms for “Papa” Trump and two terms for First Daughter Ivanka Trump. I still believe that due to President Trump’s cache of hidden “Anonymous Voters” that as long as he maintains his visible base of 35% that they are at least 30% AV’s who won’t admit that they will vote for President Trump but once inside the voting booth, will surely pull the handle for him.

Please take notice that there currently is absolutely no serious candidate for POTUS breathing down his neck. Without an extremely attractive charismatic candidate in the mix President Trump will return for a 2nd term. If a “OMAROSA/MAXINE” team could even be put together, it would have plenty of Melanin and be very entertaining it’s true but I fear it would actually bring out more of President Trump’s most vocal supporters.

KUDOS to HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVIST  Mollie Bell for her segment on the Carl Nelson Show. I being a SUPER FAN of Mollie Bell like her legions of fans across the country and around the world LOVED IT.

“ALLIANCES”: GULLAH GEECHEE, SEMINOLE MAROONS, MASCOGO MAROONS, JOHN HORSE, CARL NELSON’S WOLDC NEWS AND “FORT NEGRO’S” FIXICO

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH

Good Morning World, it’s August 11th, 2018 1:00 am.. Here in Sultry Southern California even at this hour I’m working under a fan turned all the way up. It’s humming and I’m writing . Let us pause and pray for those who are less fortunate than ourselves.

Yesterday , I called into Car Nelson’s WOLDC NEWS radio program on Open Phone Friday. Below is a transcript of my call:

“Hotep Brother Carl, “MAY THE REST OF YOUR LIFE”…”BE THE BEST OF YOUR LIFE”. It’s time to form ALLIANCES ! As a Seminole Maroon Descendant my Ancestors came from Africa to South Carolina where they became Gullah Geechee Maroons through their resistance to Slavery. Some of the group then, escaped into Spanish Florida where they formed an alliance with Seminole Indians, therefore becoming Seminole Maroons.

While in Florida they fought 4 Wars against the United States. One of them being the 2nd Seminole War where the Black Seminoles won their FREEDOM under the 1st Emancipation Proclamation. 12 years later the U.S. went back on the treaty and a portion of the future “MASCOGOS” led by John Horse escaped to Mexico.

After the the U.S. Civil War half of the Mascogo Maroons of Mexico returned to the United States and became the Seminole Negro Indian Scouts for the U.S. Military. The Black Seminoles in Indian Territory who hadn’t escaped to Mexico in 1849, when the  U.S. Civil War Began in 1861, they again formed another ALLIANCE with those Indians who remained “Loyal” to the UNION. They fought in several Civil War battles  (the warriors of Color, were mostly African-Creek, African-Cherokee and Seminole Maroons attached to the larger Indigenous group from the same tribes. I had 3 Direct Ancestors in this unit). It was because these “Loyal Indians” AKA the First Indian Home Guard remained loyal that even the tribes who rebelled against the UNION were able to get their land back.  Brother Carl my question to you is : Do you know of a country or group that we should seek to form a “CULTURAL ALLIANCE” with ,to enable us to do what we want to do”.

Carl Nelson : “Yes, There are but we would have to ask them and make sure that we are not imposing a burden on them”.

Fixico: “Thank you Brother Carl” Call ends.

“JOHN HORSE”, DR. RUNOKO RASHIDI, CARL NELSON’S WOLDC RADIO PROGRAM, LOS MASCOGOS AND “FORT NEGRO’S FIXICO

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH

Today is August 8th, 2018, it’s 2:00 am in the morning West Coast time and I must write this Blog about my call into the Carl Nelson WOLDC RADIO on Monday August 6th, 2018. Carl’s guest was the “Legendary Dr. Runoko Rashidi” . If the fabled “Indiana Jones” was Black he’d be… “Dr. Runoko Rashidi” (LoL).

Thank you “FATHER GOD” we have so much to be thankful for. Below is a paraphrased transcript of my call into the show:

“Greetings Brother Carl and Dr. Runoko Rashidi it’s a pleasure to talk with you. Concerning “Cinco de Mayo”, during the U.S. Civil War France was one of the European countries that claimed that Mexico owed them money. However, in reality they really wanted to return Colonialism and Slavery to Mexico while the U.S. was fighting their own civil war.

I have cousins among the Mascogos. The Mascogos started out as Black Seminoles who (after Florida) again escaped Slavery by fleeing U.S. Indian Territory in 1849 with John Horse. After the  war between Mexico the U.S. ended , the Treaty of Guadalupe de Hidalgo included a Military Colonist clause ( Mexico would accept immigrants willing to become border guards ). This article allowed my Ancestors to enter Mexico as military colonists.

In this capacity they fought in many battles including the 2nd War of Intervention that included the the Battle of Puebla. They helped the forces of Presidente Benito Juarez and for their military service they were granted a land concession that today is known as : Nacimiento de los Negros. This year’s Encuentro will be held in Nacimiento”

Dr. Rashidi speaks: “Tell me about John Horse”.

Fixico speaks: “John Horse  in Florida had been an Interpreter for Osceola during the 2nd Seminole War.  Seminole Indian Chief’s always had a Black interpreter.  John Horse was very active in the war and was a part of the treaty  known as Jesup’s Proclamation  ( which was the 1st Emancipation Proclamation March 6th, 1837). General Jesup had said that : “This is a Negro”War”. It became clear to him that the U.S. forces could not beat the combined Maroon and Seminole forces, so he offered a treaty that would free the Blacks if they stopped fighting and moved to Oklahoma.

This is how the Black Seminoles got to “Oklahoma” Indian Territory.  12 years later the U.S. government went back on the treaty. Before they could be enslaved John Horse (and Wildcat) led an exodus of 300 Black Seminole Maroons and 200 Indigenous Seminole Indians to Mexico. John Horse led the Black Seminoles who became known as “Los Mascogos” and Wildcat led the Seminole Indians in Mexico.

After the Civil War and Slavery had ended in the U.S. , half of the Mascogos crossed over into the United States and became known as the “Seminole Negro Indian Scouts” they were used as “Special Forces” for the Buffalo Soldiers. The Descsendants of those Mascogos that remained in Mexico will represent their Ancestors at this year’s “Encuentro” which is the meeting of the African-Mexican Villages (Pueblas)  of Mexico this year’s event will be hosted by Los Mascogos of Nacimiento de los Negros”.

TRUMP 16 YEAR DYNASTY ?, IVANKA TRUMP, NON-POLITICIAN POTUS CANDIDATES, BROWN vs. BOARD of EDUCATION, CARL NELSON WOLDC NEWS AND “FORT NEGROS” FIXICO

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH

Today is August 3rd, 2018 and in the  Southbay of Soutnern California. It’s 4:30 pm and the weather is as good as it can be. Combining Sun with Breeze, it’s so refreshing. Let us Thank God for moments like these and pray for those less fortunate than ourselves.

Carl Nelson’s “OPEN PHONE FRIDAY” WOLDC radio program went off  30 minutes ago and below is a transcript of my call into the show:

“Hotep Brother Carl, concerning the future political outlook, we can’t trust the polls for the midterms or for the next presidential election because of all the “Trump Anonymous Voters” who say they won’t vote for him but once inside the voting booth they will vote for him.

Remember, America is still a White Majority Dominant Culture Country. It doesn’t matter that the president is right or wrong. The Majority Culture at this time wants a : “Strong White Man “in charge. The Identity Politics of : “Them vs. us” works and sustains the status quo. Why wouldn’t it ?

I have for over a year stated that when needed, President Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump will be brought forward as a “Sarah Palin” type candidate and could in a beauty contest election win it all. The Brown vs, the Board of Education Trial demostration proved that Blacks will choose the: “Pretty White doll”. Which after “Papa” Trump’s two terms gives us a “16 YEAR TRUMP DYNASTY”.

The solution is that, we must find a NEW CHARISMATIC NON-POLITICIAN CANDIDATE with a plateform that is All-inclusive and fair to all.

As an African-Native American, my personal problem with the President is that his Role Model is Andrew Jackson who killed Indians to steal their land and then enslaved African families in “Cotton,Cane and Rice Prisons ” where they were worked to death. I am also a Fort Negro Maroon Descendant and General Andrew Jackson ordered it’s destruction causing a Maroon Massacre of 275 defenders in 1816.

“KEEP HOPE ALIVE” REVEREND JESSE JACKSON’S RADIO SHOW, THE U.S. IMMIGRATION BORDER CRISIS AND “FORT NEGRO’S” FIXICO

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH,
Today is Sunday June 24th, 2018, It’s 9:01 pm. . so far it’s been a quiet Sunday night in Southern California. However, early this morning when I called into Reverend Jesse Jackson’s “KEEP HOPE ALIVE” radio show emanating from Chicago, Illinois’ WVON am . Radio station but heard in California’s  Southland on 1150 am.”The Patriot Channel ”  1150 am.  it was anything but quiet . There was a heated exchange between an African-American caller and Co-host Santita Jackson. The caller was in favor of strict Immigration enforcement. Let us pray that we find a palatable solution.
Below is a transcript of my call into the show:
“Greetings  Reverend Jackson, Sister Santita, and panel. My concern including the children’s welfare is the P.R. damage to America’s image that can cause us to lose more friends. I fear that the current handling of the immigration situation will traumatize some of the children into becoming future radicals from their, experiencing a Headstart
justification for becoming Domestic Terrorist 20 years later.
The policy harkens back to the 1920’s Eugenicist Madison Grant’s Scientific Racism era. His concept was based on Social Darwinism, which advocated that the Nordic People must SURVIVE.  Concerning the Immigration situation I feel that  those undocumented people who are already here should be handled with a “Velvet Glove” (A humane approach taking into consideration all pertinent facts on a case by case basis).

DR. RUNOKO RASHIDI, CARL NELSON WOLDC RADIO, “MICCOSUKEES WITH OLMECS” CONTROVERSY AND “FORT NEGRO’S” FIXICO

HOORAY AND HALLELUJAH,

Today is June 22nd, 2018 and I’m sitting sit here in Southern California this morning a little before 7:00 am. . Listening to the world , I notice an unusual stillness, even the birds are quiet . As I look outside I realize that my visibility is limited by a  low hanging fog. Let us pray for all those who are less fortunate than ourselves especially the children.

Yesterday, with great anticipation I called into Mr. Carl Nelson’s WOLDC Radio program to speak with The Great Dr. Runoko Rashidi. Recently , I wrote a blog about the fact that there are findings and opinions that have created a :”MICCOSUKEES WITH OLMECS” Controversy. There is no living scholar that I respect on this topic more than Dr. Runoko Rashidi, for many reasons. Therefore, it was essential that I call in and speak with him. Below is a transcript of my call:

“Hotep, Brother Carl and Dr, Runoko Rashidi, I am a Descendant of MICCOSUKEE SEMINOLES AND MAROONS. The word Miccosukee means :Leader of the Zoque or Soque. The Zoque people of Southern Mexico and the Soque of Georgia of Carolina claim to be descended from the founders of the Olmec Civilization.

The newly discovered Miccosukee migration legend states that the Zoque migrated from  the Southern Vera Cruz/Tabasco area. It further claims that they came along the edge of the Gulf of Mexico and into the Southeast area of the U.S.. Dr. Rashidi , you wrote that Dr. Ivan Van Sertima did not think of the Olmecs as an African Civilization but as a Meso- American one in which Africans entered and influenced.

My question to you Dr. Rashidi is: Is it possible that my Miccosukee Ancestors could have been with the Olmecs?”

Paraphasing Dr. Rashidi: “Thank you for all the material that you send me ( referring to occasional blogs). Many things are possible but since Florida is very far away from the Vera Cruz/Tabasco area I would need to see more evidence before I answer that”

My answer: ” I consider your statement to be the standard of the community and I accept it as that. Thank you for answering my question”. Call ends.

Some years ago on another National radio program I had taken issue with Dr. Rashidi’s position that it was important for African-Americans not to begin our history here in the Western Hemisphere with Slavery. Well being a Seminole Maroon Descendant/Activist whose Ancestors won their freedom from their oppressors through direct combat I resented his statement and spoke sharply to him about it. Recently, I read an essay written by Dr. Rashidi where he reminisced about his great Mentor Dr. Ivan Van Sertima by commenting that Dr. Van Sertima was proud of the fact that his work revealed that the first historic evidence of Blacks in America demonstrates that they came here, not as Slaves but as Rulers or Priest Gods. I know that I have personally grown by understanding this fact. Thank you, Brother Carl Nelson, Dr. Ivan Van Sertima and thank you also Dr. Runoko Rashidi.
