Apology for Slavery and Jim Crow

Sisterdoc spied this on the NAACP website. It is interesting because the call is for an apology for slavery AND for Jim Crow practices. The Jim Crow part is key because is serves as a reminder of how Jim Crow was a legalized, modern form of slavery-era rules and practices. Think: Black codes, Sunset Laws, Segregation, Bans on interracial marriage... So, for those folks who often say that slavery was long ago, and why don't Blacks leave the past in the past. This call for an apology serves as a reminder that racist practices did not end a century and a half ago. Jim Crow was of our and our parents' generation and its effects still remain (Jena 6 anybody?).

On Tuesday, July 29 2008 the United States House of Representatives passed,
by a unanimous vote, H. Res. 194, a resolution apologizing for the enslavement
and racial segregation of African Americans. This resolution was significant for
several reasons, including the fact that it addressed not only slavery but the
“separate but equal” Jim Crow era as well.

This legislation is an important first step in recognizing a very important aspect
of American’s history and recommitting ourselves to bringing about an end to
the disparities and injustices that continue to plague our Nation as a result of
the dehumanization of an entire race. In passing this resolution, the House of
Representatives has sent a message to all of the American people and others
that the most powerful nation in the world is willing to look honestly at some of
the most shameful parts of its history, accept responsibility, and apologize for its actions.

The NAACP Washington Bureau has been in negotiations with Senator Tom
Harkin (Iowa) to author a companion resolution in the Senate; we are hoping it
will be introduced in the near future. The NAACP also strongly supports H.R.
40, legislation introduced by Congressman John Conyers (MI) to take the next
step toward healing our Nation by addressing and seeking remedy for the
lingering effects if this deplorable institution.

I came across an interracial blog site called one year ago. I posted my blog there and met my black boyfriend. There so many black and white singles discuss relationship, love, dating, marriage and life there...

Northwest Airlines Attack upon my mother and I and extensive extrajudicial persecution (framed, covert tribunal, threats , stalking, sabotaged mail etc) prompts us to expose their crimes on line. This spawned repeated attempts at kidnapping or murder by *criminally charged local Winnipeg police (acting covertly without warrant or charges) on behalf of U.S. judicial and corporate factions including FBI CIA and NSA, in attempt to silence us. Winnipeg police remain motivated by a close affiliation with Minneapolis Police: Winnipeg Police Chief Keith Mc Caskill is president of North West Chapter of Associates FBI with Minneapolis Police affiliation and was referenced by police upon the first kidnapping/murder attempt. Family Friends Associates threatened, terrorized now 3 years ongoing as police use many covert tactics in order to effect attempts at kidnapping, havening necessitated my going into hiding in remote locations for extended periods of time. Family and I have been traumatized, I with 12 trips to hospital with Heart Attack symptoms via combination of the effects of the tasing attack and ongoing persecution and my 64 year old mother’s health rapidly deteriorating.
Canadian and U.S. government attempting to conceal culpability have not only been negligent in refusing assistance, but complicit in cross border collusion towards this effect. As example, Foreign affairs representative Estelle Battahdier stated "Let us know if they torture you or ask you to commit indecent acts-but still, we will not intervene-this is a U.S. affair." Provisions for just such assistance from Foreign affairs were found online by journalist Lesley Hughes, at Foreign affairs, Canadian Human Rights Amnesty International, Manitoba Human Rights, the House of Commons (approached by local MP Steven Fletcher) MP's Annita Neville,Penny Priddy(approached on our behalf by Roche Tasse President of International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group Ottawa) Globe and Mail May 10 2007 clearly reads "Ottawa sacrificed Arar to save face with Syria and the United States". Canada's complicity is clear.
Media, once slandering online on television newspaper and radio, now censor in order to assist government ploys therein. Threats received by covert U.S. agency including FBI indicate severe harm and possible death resultant as consequence if they are successful. Local Winnipeg Police Chief in Canada is FBI asset, graduate of Northwest Chapter of Associates FBI with MN affiliation. Winnipeg Police now remain in violation of court order to return property thieved upon original kidnapping attempt and stall court proceedings to hide complicity in cross border collusion with the U.S. from the court, motivated further towards collusion and our harm, in that among the officers involved, two are now charged amogst 4 Winnipeg police charged as of Jan of this year with illegal entry and perjury, and amongst those two is Jess Zebron, step son of former police chief Jack Ewatski who resigned disgraced late last year 2007 over issues of corruption and racism.
