Eugene Godfried interviews the leader of Curacao's Independence Party  -- Curazao and the Netherlands on the way to suffocate free press in Dutch semicolony, the Netherlands Antilles?  These islands are Curazao, Bonaire, Saint Martin, Saba and Saint Eustatius.  Independence activist Joceline Clemencia from Curazao denounces the de facto censorship imposed by commisioner Zita Leito on local communications media. This measure coincides with the visit of Queen Beatrix to the islands. No protests are tolerated against 1) the financial crisis in the islands or 2) the decision to dismantle the federative union of the 5 islands with the Netherlands in order to enter into direct one on one submission - divide and conquer.

Georgia boycott contemplated, for the signing of the signing the Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance Act, SF Bay View, 4/19/06 - "Angel Luevano, California LULAC state director, said that “historically, Mexico extended the greatest hospitality to people from Georgia and throughout the South as a haven for runaway slaves. In fact, the reason that Mexico lags behind the United States in development to this day is the loss of territory that Mexico suffered as a direct consequence of attempting to free the slaves illegally brought to Texas by Americans. That set off the chain of events which led to the illegal provocation of war against Mexico by President Polk, which was denounced by then Congressman Abraham Lincoln and later described as atrocity by then Army Capt. Ullyses S. Grant.”

Chabot Cuba conference faces a challenged Afro - Cuba  10/19/2005 SF Bay View: "The panelists reported that the income gap between Black and white Cubans widened during the "special period" (1990s) after the fall of the Soviet Union and the tightening of the U.S. economic blockade. Remittances - money sent by Cubans in the United States to their families in Cuba - go mostly to white Cubans, 30 to 40 percent. Only 5 to 10 percent goes to Black Cubans... Twenty percent of the audience was African North Americans, who met with other African North Americans and Alberto Jones on Sunday to explore a remittance program for Afro-Cubans and to educate and organize African North Americans to put an end to the U.S. blockade and travel embargo against Cuba."

We support Cuba because Cuba supports Blacks and Africa - Response to Chabot Cuba Conference report  11/9/2005 SF Bay View: "The problem is, when you speak of Cuban realities - or realities in Mexico, Venezuela, Peru, Brazil etc. - who is Afro-Cuban and who is not? When I first went to Cuba in 1974, years after the first waves of gusano defections to Miami, I was informed by reliable medical authorities that so many whites had left that by then fully 80 percent of the Cuban population was susceptible to sickle cell anemia. In other words, Cuba was becoming darker by white political default."

Source: McKinney fiasco shakes Capitol Police, officer knew her  4/18/2006 Redding News Review: "A source said an officer, who says Rep. Cynthia McKinney struck him in the chest with a closed fist, knew who she was, and claims the incident has caused infighting among U.S. Capitol Police. The source, who is close to the ongoing grand jury investigation of the March 29 scuffle, said Paul McKenna, a third year officer in the U.S. Capitol Police, was given a picture of the congresswoman in training. "No one believes that a man with a name that similar to hers would not know who she is," the source told Redding News Review. "He clearly knew who she was and what she looked like but stopped her anyway." ...The source - who did not want to be identified in fear that they might lose their job - also said that the incident has resulted in "fighting and heated arguments between white and black officers." "This case is tearing the department apart," the source said. "The blacks say the whites were screwing with her, but the white officers are saying that she should have stopped."

, HOA, 5/15/05

Assata and Posada: Two different colors, two different stories  5/18/2005 SF Bay View: "The generally unacknowledged factor of Posada and Bosch’s blowing up of the Cubana airliner, however, is this. If tourists to Cuba take the time to visit Havana’s Sport’s Palace, guides will inevitably take them to the memorial wall. From there, visitors will be greeted by row after row of young, mostly Black faces staring back at them – photographs of Cuba’s Olympic athletes who were returning from the Pan American Games in Venezuela and were on board the airliner Posada and Bosch likely bombed. Therefore, by putting a $1 million bounty on Sister Shakur, who, they say, is linked to the killing of one white person, while allowing Posada and Bosch remain free in the U.S. after killing at least 73 mostly Black people, the U.S. has once again exposed itself as a government that continues to capitulate to and accommodate itself to racism."

It's that you - Mr. and Ms. BlackAmericaWeb.com - are being deprived of an affirming and even life-changing experience. Cuba, just 90 miles to the south of Miami, is defined and dominated by African culture and heritage. And all Cubans, even the white ones, seem to know this."
