What’s in a name? A true name may not necessarily appear in a birth certificate. For registration purposes, the last name is usually connected with a parent. See, for example, William de Blasio, the patriarch. During slavery, an enslaved African had no last name and the first name was not a period of slavery.
If you were enslaved, the law required a first name followed by , “A Slave”. Celia, A Slavewas an enslaved African. Her story is true. She was lynched by the order of the Missouri Supreme Court for exercising the human right of self-defense against her slave holder, a serial rapist. Celia A. Slave recognized that she was a human being and not a “heathen”. Tawana, A Slave had been raped by six white men, with impunity, from November 24-28, 1987. Enslaved Africans have no human rights.
John, A Slave was convicted on March 19, 2008 for exercising the human right of self-defense to protect himself, his slave quarter and his family from a white, lynch mob. Suffolk County Judge Barbara Kahn instructed the jury that John, A Slave had no right to harm any white man under any circumstance. This is straight out of the slave code and it actually appears in the jury instructions without objection. Any objection may have led to the lynching of the “defense” lawyer.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo refuses to pardon him. It has been a continuing debate about whether the pardon powers extend to enslaved Africans. Former Gov. David Paterson found that an enslaved African was not eligible for a pardon. The killing of a white man by a descendant of enslaved Africans is not subject to a pardon
In the history of American jurisprudence, there have been only about twenty-five mostly Black lawyers who have sought to defend the rights of Blacks in an extraordinary way. As an exception, add Lynne Stewart. I started to name names on this past Saturday. These men and women have been punished in some way while the Black community looked with binoculars from afar. I will complete this list of names if there is another seminar and workshop.
While her birth certificate bears the name “Tawana Viciena Brawley”, Hon. Louis Farrakhan, in October 1989 in Chicago, IL, sought to improve on it by bestowing on her “Maryum Muhammad”. Under the original teachings of the Nation of Islam, she would be referred to as Tawana X
United African Movement has no quarrel with the original teachings of the Nation of Islam but UAM is now uncomfortable with Tawana, A Slave in light of the recent events in New York and Virginia. Because of two U.S. Supreme Court cases that I cited on this past Saturday, it is inescapable that New York and Virginia have invoked the Fugitive Slave Law of 1793. See my partial bibliography in Legal History of Racism in the United States.
I informed the audience with irrefutable proof this past Saturday that Black people have only tasted liberty for a period of fifteen years in the United States. This period expired in 1883. Its expiration came about because of the Compromise of 1877. Samuel Tilden of New York represented the Confederate States of America. Rutherford B. Hayes of Ohio represented the Union. The Compromise of 1877 means that no one can enforce the rights of ex-slaves and their descendants without personal harm.
Justice Joseph B. Bradley was given his marching orders after he completed his tie-breaking position on the electoral commission. His first task was to end constitutional protections under the Fourteenth Amendment. This came about in the Civil Rights Cases. Afterwards, the U.S. Supreme Court would usher in Plessy v. Ferguson. It was constitutional for Blacks to be second-class citizens under Art. 1, sec. 2 of the United States Constitution.
In Pagones v. Maddox, Mason, Sharpton and Brawley, Index No. 4595 (Sup. Ct., Dutchess Co. 1988), Justice S. Barrett Hickman correctly instructed the jury that “truth is no defense to [sedition]“. Black spectators were confused. They had been taught that truth was a defense. This is “good law” under the slave codes.
Blacks refuse to accept the fact that there is a dual system of justice in the United States and, before Plessy v. Ferguson, white jurors were judges of both the law and the facts. This changed after Blacks started to demand the right to sit on juries. This change appears in the law. Today, the court system operates with two sets of books with white judges were being accorded the last word.
Justice Hickman was authorized to prosecute Tawana, A Slave and her advisors under the Sedition Act of 1798 instead of New York Times v. Sullivan. Sedition is a serious charge and, for Blacks, it is absolutely illegal to criticize whites. ”Maddox, Mason, Sharpton and Brawley” had to be taught a lesson. Cecil, A Slave and Alfred, A Slave have quick minds. Alton, A Slave and Tawana, A Slave are dull-minded.
Both the Full Faith and Credit Clause and the Fugitive Slave Law arose under the U.S. Constitution. They both operate under the “long-arm jurisdiction” of the court. Both clauses are still operative. The Full Faith and Credit Clause has a due process component and it applies, mostly, to whites. The Fugitive Slave Law is without a due process provision and it applies to Black
Tawana, A Slave was a “minor” when Pagones claimed to have sued her. New York Law required the appointment of a guardian ad litem. This appointment never happened in New York or in Virginia. Since she has never had her “day in court” and only the Fugitive Slave Law would apply. For the rest of her life, Pagones can pick her pocket on a bogus, default judgment. She is an “indentured servant” which is approved by Dred Scott.
Enslaved Africans went to the Civil War to defeat Dred Scott. While the Union defeated the Confederate States of America with the assistance of “ex-slaves”, those same “ex-slaves” had to fend for themselves, afterwards, unarmed and defanged. These same “ex-slaves” lost the benefits of the “spoils” at the bargaining table in 1877.
American jurisprudence is a legal system. Enslaved Africans were treated separately and differently. Whites, during slavery, were known by their full names. All enslaved Africans were known by a first name plus “A Slave”. No one was called “Twelve Years, A Slave“. In the case of an enslaved African, in Missouri, killing her slaveholder, she was known as “Celia A. Slave”. All of our “revered ancestors” had the same last name but they had different first names.
”Twelve Years A Slave” is a fictional account of slavery. Those persons who question some of the fictional accounts of slavery would never believe a true story of slavery which is happening today. See, for example, Tawana, A Slave. Slavery is still in effect. The “badges of slavery” are running amuck in 2013.
Tawana, A Slave is a true story of slavery. I am putting together a true account of slavery for the screen which will be announced on Wednesday, November 27 at 7:00 p.m. at the Brooklyn Christian Center, 1061 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn. Tawana, A Slave will also be present. This is actually a “slave narrative” and a documentary. There will be no actors.
Robert Abrams, for example, will play himself. Steven Pagones will play himself. Min. Louis Farrakhan will play himself. I will be shown in the Dutchess County Supreme Court arguing against slavery. Abrams will be seen arguing for it. Glenda, A Slave will be seen taking the Underground Railroad to the historic Bethany Baptist Church in Brooklyn. This is a preview. DO NOT PURCHASE A COPYCAT TAWANA, A SLAVE! All Proceeds to Tawana Brawley Only.
Tawana Brawley, officially, became Tawana, A. Slave on July 23, 2013 at the Surry County Court, which is a Confederate courthouse, in Surry County, VA. This is in itself a “badge of slavery” but it is permitted under Dred Scott. Judge Nathan C. Lee found that Tawana, A Slave, under the Fugitive Slave Law, is an” indentured servant” and should compensate Steven Pagones, under the Sedition Act of 1798, and the Fugitive Slave Law of 1793 for the rest of her natural life.
