SHOW DESCRIPTION AND BACKGROUND

This show will mark the 68th Anniversary of the historic Supreme Court of the United States decision1954 Brown v Board of Education, while highlighting the recalcitrance of White Supremacy and its legacy of murderous hate from Tulsa to Buffalo,with guests Damario Solomon Simmons, Adjoa Aiyetoro, Esq., and Prof. Ernest Quarles. Our expert guests are on the forefront to Address the deep rooted challenges of White Supremacy in our nation and its overwhelming threat not only to peace but to Democracy. Damarion Solomon Simmons, Professor Ernest Quarles and Adjoa Aiyetoro are all big picture thinkers and activists in this movement to defeat White Structural Racism in the US and abroad.

In 1954, African Americans throughout the United States were uplifted and exuberant about the Court’s declaration that in the area of education separate but equal was unconstitutional. Everywhere pundits declared that this decision signaled a new day in race relations and the end of the Jim Crow era. Despite declaring in subsequent decisions that the implementation of school desegregation should proceed with “all deliberate speed”, Sadly, the Supreme Court would rather quickly abandon any efforts on its part to enforce the decision. Children warriors would be pelted with rotten eggs; White riots would close schools. Eventually, White flight from the public schools, public disinvestment, and inequitable funding schemes would undermine the Promise of Brown. Even as formal de jure segregation fell, de facto segregation rose and was rapidly declared beyond the reach of the Courts. Again, the Spector of States Rights and Local Control would doom aggressive efforts to integrate the nation’s schools leading to massive racial segregation and “Savage Inequalities” in the public school systems. Even the much hailed Charter School movement has not reversed these trend lines.

However, once the “genie was out of the bottle”, the demand of African Americans for full equality would result in the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1965 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Over the years, it has become clear that White supremacy is so deeply embedded in American thought and practice that continual acts of racist violence would be embraced to thwart Black success. An essential obstacle has become White Fear of demographic change, now embodied in the White Replacement theory. In Charlottesville, in August, 2017, White nationalists marched with Tiki torches shouting “Jews will not replace us” in defense of a statue devoted to celebrating a White Supremacist. Heather Heyer would die in that weekend of Neo Nazi violence. As White fears evolve, White supremacist thoughts have resurfaced to further fuel ugly and murderous White violence against Blacks, Latinos, Asians, Jews, and Native Americans in the 21st Century. In October, 2018, there was the Tree of Life Synagogue anti-Semitic slayings.

The Tulsa Race Massacre of May 31 – June 1, 1921 has often been cited as one of the worst examples of White supremacist Backlash to Black progress. Laudably, litigation to redress this governmental harm is now finally proceeding in state court.

Yet, the recent Buffalo Massacre, so similar to the Mother Emmanuel Massacre of 2015 and the El Paso Massacre in which a young White gunman, radicalized on the Internet by White Supremacist Hate, drove to a grocery store in a predominantly Black area and proceeded to systemically gun down Black people. Like Dylan Roof and Patrick Cruisius, this perpetrator left behind a manifest of Racist Hate. In each circumstance, these killers desired to start a Race War to end in the extermination of Blacks, Jews or Immigrants.

Again, the official response is to talk about “lone gunmen” and “gun control”, but not to address the systemic underpinnings promoting this Hatred. From Prof. Ernest Quarles’ notes on the subject:

On March 16th, 2022, the first official press conference for newly appointed White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, a Black woman, was held to discuss the Buffalo Massacre. Casualties included of this Massacre included:

  1. Former Buffalo police lieutenant Aaron Salter
  2. Ruth Whitfield, 86, mother of Buffalo retired Fire Commsr. She was visiting the former fire chief’s father in nursing home when she stopped to buy groceries
  3. Catherine Massey, 72, wrote for local newspapers and assisted in elections
  4. Pearl Young, 77, substitute teacher, Saturday volunteer at church food pantry
  5. Heyward Patterson, 68, church volunteer, drove residents to and from grocery store
  6. Celestine Chaney, 65, survived cancer, regular churchgoer
  7. Robert Drury, 32
  8. Geraldine Tally, 62, doing grocery shopping with fiancé
  9. Andhra McNeil, 53, going to get birthday cake for son
  10. Marcus Morrison, 52, father of three

Press Sec’y Jean-Pierre then referred to losses in Houston, Milwaukee, and Southern California where:

  • Four people were critically hurt and one person suffered minor injuries from the shooting inside the Geneva Presbyterian Church, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. All victims are adults and range in age from 66 to 92, the sheriff’s office said. On Monday, the Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes said evidence indicates the shooting was a “politically motivated hate crime” against the Taiwanese community. Four of the five victims in the shooting held Taiwanese citizenship
  • At least 21 people injured in three downtown Milwaukee shootings after Bucks playoff game
  • 17 people shot this weekend in Houston, including four teenagers

For Actual stats for weekend, see the article “Mass shootings killed 14 people and wounded 39 over the weekend”.

Of note in Press Sec’y Jean-Pierre’s responses to the Press was her sentiment that:

  • “Hate must have no harbor. We must do everything in our power to end hate-filled domestic terrorism and we must reject hatred and extremism, extremist ideologies that seek to divide Americans whenever we find it in our society. It is anti-thetical to who we are as a country and fuels violence as well.”
  • “The most urgent threat the US faces today” is the need for adding resources to stop recruitment and mobilization and a government-wide national strategy to counter domestic terrorism.
  • “Any racially motivated crime is abhorrent.”

Press Sec’y Jean-Pierre also mentioned White supremacist theory and link to Replacement Theory and Ultra Mega; the Epidemic of gun violence; and, the national problem of mental health which results in traumatized communities, especially communities of color.

Our show will connect the dots between the failure of Brown, the failure over 101 years to hold Tulsa accountable for the Massacre, the Anti-Critical Race Theory movement, and the violence propelled by Fox News, White supremacist groups, White Fear, and the voter suppression movement. The latter part of the fourth segment of the show will also discuss the primary elections on May 17th in Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
