The Case of Rodney Stanberry: Incarcerated for a Crime He Did Not Commit

Dr. Boyce Watkins, Your Black World

Rodney Stanberry was sent to prison for a murder that he didn’t commit.  There is currently an international campaign to secure Rodney’s freedom, as the Your Black World Coalition is joining forces with Rodney’s other supporters to convince the District Attorney to re-open Rodney’s case.  We’ll keep you updated on the situation as it evolves, but we encourage you to join the fight and find out the details for yourself.

    What is happening in ‘America’ is that the ‘black’ man is totally disrespected, used, abused, and confused!

    What should have happened by now is that our so-called organizations should have requested that the issues of racism against us, the discrimination and lack of financial appropriation be forced onto the “government” to address!

    At every turn anyone ‘black’ who has access to the media, any media, should make it a point to have government address our very serious questions and our very serious problems. As it is wealthy ballers, singers, actors, politicians, upper echelon government officials, etc. of ‘black’ persuasion seem willing to keep their mouths shut and let the rest of us just suffer, and suffering has become second nature to ‘blacks’ in America.

    When the statistics are rattled off about our negative societal problems, it reads like a cause for a ‘State Of Emergency’, but in this country everyone is so hush hush and the government is so over-the-top. That our lives don’t seem worth a plum nickel.

    So I ask again. When will our so called leaders and famous people stand up for us? When will they sit idiots like Bill Cosby down? When will they stop praising charlatans and A-holes like Clinton and Obama and start raising hell?

    I say use every chance you get to let this skank government know how we really feel and what we expect them to do about it!

    Yes, it is called the Black Boule. Cyborgs who trade their great life to Massa JimCrow and JeffCrow at the expense of what they deem the lower crust black lives suffering, by snitching, setting up other blacks, turning their heads, having blind eyes, callous hearts and silent bystanders that see and know truth. It is not only the black man, but the black woman too. It is like, I got mine, get yours, shame on it, oh well, that is the way the ball bounces, the cookie crumbles, can’t help how I was born to whom I was born – you know the drill. Pathetically disgusting.

    For years all of us have heard about “what our problem is” and we all agree. We don’t support one another, we don’t trust one another, we are still cursed by the “Willie Lynch Letter”. We can all start now to reverse whatever supports this perception by starting a network now through this medium; putting together an agenda that WE want; one that WE can and will support and one that will say to and challenge those of us who can really make a difference. Think of what could be done for Blacks by Blacks if we were to get professional athletics, musicians, lawyers, doctors, actors, businesspeople etc to all pool some of their resources to create opportunities for deserving young Blacks. Each successful generations of Blacks would be responsible for fhelping other Blacks. Just an idea I would like to see materalize.
