BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


A 2 THE MIAMI TIMES, MAY 7-13, 2008


Obama Wright schism
B lack people all over the country were caught up
between a rock and a hard place after the political
shenanigans of the past week in the he effort to
elect Sen. Barack Obama as the Democratic nominee for
president.
Many thought the Rev. Jeremiah Wright might have thrown
Obama under the bus when he used the forum of the National
press Club in Washington to defend the Black Church from
criticism of his fiery sermons.
We cannot deny that much of what Wright said was the
truth about the struggle of Blacks in this country, but, citing
the bible Book of Ecclesiastics, "there is a time to keep silent
and a time to speak."
Rev. Wright did not realize it, but he played his way right
into the hands of a hostile media that will consider a Black
4nan as president, but it does not want a lack president.
Racism is alive and well in this country and the campaign
being waged today in North Carolina and Indiana will remind
you of the fact y checking out print and broadcast news.
Obama served his ties to Wright at a news conference last
Tuesday decrying his longtime minister's latest remarks as
"a bunch of rants that aren't grounded in the truth."
In March, in a speech on race prompted by controversy
over Wright's past sermons. Obama said he disagreed with
some of the pastor's views but could not disown the man who
performed his marriage and baptized his children.
His feelings changed after he viewed tapes of Wright
speaking Monday at the National press Club where he
defended National of Islam leader Louis Farakhan. Wright
also suggested that U.S. actions abroad promoted terrorism,
and that the government was capable of creating the AIDS
virus to kill Blacks.
Rev. Wright is a theologian and a very popular pastor who
has done a lot of good work in his city and throughout the
country. We need more pastors like him to remind the world
to be fair to all people.
In this complex world in which we live we need Barack
Obama and Rev. Jeremiah Wright. And we need to remember
our biblical teachings in the Book of Ecclesiastics.




Time for you to act

on crisis in Haiti
You are probably aware that the growing food crisis in Haiti
has been the focus of community leaders and Haitian activists in
Miami-Dade County for the past several weeks. But, what they
have told us in the past few days must be clear to all. It is time
now that people of all nationalities and from all walks of life in our
community become greatly alarmed and mobilize to act.
Second only to New York City in this country, Miami-Dade is home
to the greatest number of first generation immigrants from Haiti and
a rapidly increasing number of their U.S. born children. Haiti is
the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere and is now suffering
what may be the most devastating impact anywhere in what has
quickly become a world-wide food shortage. U.S. Congressmen
Kendrick Meek (D-17th FL) and Alcee Hastings (D-23rd FL) along
with the Reverend Jesse Jackson and other prominent Americans,
including South Florida religious and civic leaders, have traveled to
Haiti. They have sounded a clear warning that mass starvation may
be imminent unless something is done and done quickly. Miami-
Dade's Haitian American leaders are providing guidance to us all
on both the short and long term needs of the people there.
The challenge that we face now is stark and in-our-face. We cannot
sit back and pretend while human beings living only a few hundred
miles away are reduced to eating grass and dirt. We cannot watch
idly as our neighbors riot in the streets and commit violence upon
each other because they are hungry and are desperate to feed their
children and themselves. We cannot remain silent while frantic and
terrified people crowd by the hundreds onto rickety small boats and
set out to cross the sea in a treacherous and nightmarish gamble
'leading to either freedom or to death.
Several of our elected officials and community leaders have
offered to us a menu of responses that we must undertake. Among
these are calls for personal contributions to relief agencies and
citizen support. for U.S. A.I.D. Food for Peace, United Nations and
other government and nongovernmental food assistance. There
is also support for enhancements to the HOPE II Trade Bill that
offers duty-free entry to certain clothing made in Haiti and that has
created nearly ten thousand jobs in the Republic this year.
Immigrant advocates tell us that we need to lobby hard to convince
President Bush, through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security,
to grant immediate Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to Haitian
refugees who are currently in this country. There is significant hope
for the passage of the federal Jubilee Act that would forgive the debt
of impoverished nations around the world for loans funded through
world development organizations.
There is much that can and must be done to mobilize action to
stop starvation and violence in Haiti. I encourage you to contact
your Congressional leaders and community organizations to find
out more about what you should be doing.
You can join with the members of the Miami-Dade County
Community Relations Board (CRB), the Haitian American Grassroots
Coalition and the Miami-Dade NAACP who are responding in this
community by convening an "Emergency Summit on Haiti". The
Summit will focus on both short-term and long term solutions to the
present crisis and to helping restore economic sustainability to the
country. Detailed action plans will be developed and assignments
for organizations and individuals will be made with specific
deadlines for completion. The Summit will convene on Friday,
May 9, 2008, 9:30 a.m. 3:00 p.m. at the Historical Museum of
Southern Florida, 101C West Flagler Street. For more information,
contact the CRB at (305) 375-5730. I encourage those of you with
significant energy, ideas and commitment to participate.

- A lot of folk were surprised recently to learn that Miami
- Beach's famous Fontainebleau Hotel is now only half owned
- by United States interest. The oil rich Dubai government
paid $375 million to add to its Middle East portfolio.
Some other major purchases on he Dubai World buying
spree include partial stakes or full interest in Loehmann's
department stores, MGM Mirage Casino in Las Vegas,
Knickerbockers Building in New York's Times Square, DP
World Pot Operations in 27 countries and three hotels in
New York and Washington, D.C.
Local police believe the economic slump-that has invaded
this community and has given rise ot a series of bank
robberies, residential burglaries, driveway robbyies and
other crimes in South Florida that appear to accompany
the escalating prices of gas and groceries. This amount of
violent crime seems to be getting out of hand and citizens
are becoming uneasy.

Most people feel the latest meeting of the state Legislature
was a waste of time and money with very little being
accomplished. The public had hoped to see some action
on the important issues like health care, sales tax reform,
insurance and education. Maybe there is a need for some
new faces in Tallahassee. Stay tuned!
*******


Latest census figures show the startling fact that Florida
is losing its popularity among whites who are non-Hispanic.
Between July 1, 2006 and June 30, 2007, Florida's non-
Hispanic white population growth rate fell to 29th among
the 50 states. Florida ranked fourth a year earlier down
from No. 1 in previous years.
The Liberty City 6 will have to wait until next Jan. 6
for their third trial after two hung juries failed to reach a
verdict. Meanwhile four of the six defendants in the Liberty
City case held without bond in solitary confinement
since their arrests in June 2006 were being released on
$50,000 bail each.
This is a statistic we should be ashamed to read: For
the third year in a row, Florida led the country in 2007
for reports of violence against the homeless. The study
conducted by the National Coalition for the Homeless
found that violent crimes against the homeless rose about
13 percent nationwide, to 160 reported incidents of those,
28 ended with fatalities.
A lot of folk are wondering why a law against human
smuggling failed to pass the Legislature. It would have
made it a state crime to knowingly bring someone into the
state illegally. It would have allowed a local law enforcement
to detain suspected human smugglers coming across the
Florida Straits. Right now, only federal agents can do
that.

Door locks won't work. Mace won't help. So, how do you fend off the nation's deadliest killer?
Simple, don't smoke. By leading to lung cancer, heart disease and countless other ailments, smoking kills
438,000 smokers each year. If you never light up, you'll never be one of them. And if you'd like to save
someone else, tell them to visit tobaccofreeflorida.com or call the Quitline at 1-877-U-CAN-NOW

Is the country currently in a recession?


JOANNA JOSEPH, 20
Student, Miami


Right now,
it's not right
what's going
on in this
country. So
many people
are being laid
off and losing
their homes.
People got bills to pay and the
people on top don't seem to
care that much. Gas prices . .
let's not go there. There needs
to be a change in our economy
because this not right at all.

We are in
a recession.
It's serious
- because a
lot of people
are hurting
Financially. I'd
rather ride the
bus than drive
a car to work because the gas
prices have soared and let's not
mention . car insurance. I
don't know if it will get better
but I know that something
definitely needs to change.

ANTONETTE CARR,,44

This makes
no sense.
There are no
jobs, gas is
crazy, and
people are
losing their
homes. This
is crazy.
Everything
is at a stand still right now.
Those who are trying to make
a difference are not being
heard but yet those who are
doing nothing and arn not
trying to do anything are the
ones that everyone is p4ying
attention to. I am on a fixed
income and so are most older

Unfortunately, people are
living paycheck-to-paycheck.
Minimum wage is a chunk
of change and it can't do
anything for the average
American person. The
crimes are getting worse in
our communities. Too many
young people are killing each
other. We just have to hope
for the best.

Too many senseless acts of violence


VIOLENCE
continued from 1A

allow it to become an excuse on
why we can't do our jobs," said
Sardine.
For two years, Sardine has
been driving his Honda Civic
from Homestead to West Palm
Beach. His car is decorated in
art, scriptures, and signatures
from Miami, Miami-Dade,
Plantation, and Coral Springs
Police Department. He has


also received signatures from
residents who support his move
to action.
Sardine urges city leaders and
Governor Charlie Christ to step
up to the plate in preventing
these catastrophes from
occurring to another family.
"Single parents dominate
within our communities. How
can they afford to bury a child if
they are struggling to pay their
mortgage," said Sardine. He
gives praises to the men who


have taken on their roles without
hesitation, "My hats off to every
Black man who supports his
family today instead of running
to the streets. If no one ever
told you, you are strong and
greatly appreciated."
"This Mothers Day, light a
candle and let every mother
know that you care. Stop
the body bag, we can't take
it anymore. All I can give
you is love, I have no hate for
anyone."


Edmonson promises summer jobs for kids


SOLUTIONS
continued from 1A

call the meeting after the
shooting deaths on April 17
of brothers Rashawn Beneby,
22, and Deon Beneby, 21,
in a Liberty City housing
project. With the state of
Florida cutbacks, Dunn's
main concern is that young
Black teenagers will have a
long summer with limited
opportunities available to
them eventually turning to the
streets. With. the few summer
jobs, neighborhood activities,
and reduced summer school
schedule, Dunn and other
leaders wanted to provide
alternatives to the children of
this community.
One solution that was made
was providing more jobs for
young people. "We need jobs.
Our children need jobs. I am
not depending on the county
jobs. I brought in a private
industry to provide these kids
with jobs," said Edmonson.
Summer job opportunities
are very limited, exceptionally


in the black communities. For
example, the City of Miami
Gardens does not offer any
summer jobs. Through the
county, few jobs are available
in the Parks and Recreation
department. With the slowing
economy, private employers
struggle to make jobs available
to the public. Many parents
are unable to afford to put
their children in camps and
summer programs leaving
the children running in the
streets or staying home and
chatting on MySpace.
"We have depended on the
government way too much to
take care of our community.
It's time for us to take care
of each other," said Juanita
Shanks Community Relations
Manager, Liberty City
Community Revitalization
Trust.
A growing number of young
people in the community are
arrested daily. When they are
released from jail, it is hard
to obtain a job without being
asked the troubling question
on the application about


their criminal background.
Most employers refuse to hire
convicts or ex-offenders.
The State Attorney started
a program called the Palmer
Union Contract in which they
will hire ex-offenders where
they pay them between $10 to
$17 an hour. "We have held
job fairs for ex-offenders,"
said Kionne McGhee,
Assistant State Attorney.
Unfortunately, most young
people that fall into this
predicament are unaware of
this valuable information.
"A lot of young people are
getting information off the
streets," said Darryll Baxter,
Job Training Assistant at
the Department of Human
Services in Miami-Dade
County.
While providing jobs to
young people to keep them
from getting into trouble is
very beneficial, many believe
that it would not be enough to
stop the increasing violence,
for young people lack
discipline, morals, guidance,
and skills which need to be


taught to help them adapt to
this changing economy.
"We are in desperate need of
leadership in this community,"
said local resident Arid Landy.
Leaders were called to step
up not just to talk and give a
feel good message but to move
forward with actions.
"I blame the parents for the
things that are happening
in this community. Some of
these kids have no manners
and they walk around
exposing their underwear to
the public. We got to take
control of our children. It is not
the teacher's responsibility to
raise your child," said Georgia
Ayers, Executive Director of
the Alternative Programs,
Inc.
"The programs discussed
tonight will not work if there
is not a moral reform in the
youth of today. Many of us are
afraid of preaching the right
of kind of preaching. Our
issue is that young people are
dying everyday," said Minister
Rasul Muhammad from the
Nation of Islam.


Liberty City charter school says: help us save our school


Although the Liberty City
Charter School is in debt for
S1.5 million, they continue
to fight to clear their debt and
keeping the school open for the
kids by devising a strategic plan
of action to achieve solvency.
"The number one issue should
be about education. Why is
there always a money issue
when it comes to education in
this community? We should
be able to hold our grounds by
now. Education always seems
to take a back seat in receiving
the necessary resources, when
it is the thing that will set this
community free," said Principal
Katrina Wilson-Davis.


In 2005, the landlord of the
building came back from Haiti
and said that through a spiritual
awakening he was told that it
was time for the Charter School
to relocate. Even though Liberty
City made efforts to negotiate
and a court order, all attempts
to come to a resolution about
the situation failed.' At that
point, the school was in good
standing with the School Board,
building and zoning, health
and fire departments, but sadly
the landlord called a number
of people and reported the
school to be operating in unsafe
conditions.
"Finally, in December 2007,


the financial situation began to
spiral out of control and within
60 days our contract with Miami-
Dade County Public Schools was
terminated," said Wilson-Davis.
Davis informs us that it is
important for people to know
that the current deficit is not
due to financial management,
but rather from the unbudgeted
costs acquired from the frequency
of inspections which resulted
in facility upgrades branching
from code compliance issues,
hurricane related damage,
the loss in revenues due the
reduction in student population
and litigation fees.
"So far, we have $100,000 off


our $1.5 million debt. Every
time we reduce the amount, the
less money we have to raise.
Now, we are trying to get the
Walk-a-thon approved for the
Memorial Day weekend to raise
some funds," said Wilson-Davis.
With their strategic plan, the
12-year-old school is expecting
to sell their existing property,
pay the Landlord's legal fees,
negotiate reductions of legal
fees and liabilities, receive close
to $500,000 in sponsorship,
and with additional funds to
raised in the 'Walk-A-Thon'. The
school is expecting 300 donors
to contribute $1500 by Friday,
May 19.

t an excuse to du


Before the school year ends, speak with your child's teachers about his or
her strengths and weaknesses. Ask what are going to be the expectations
and skills for the next grade level that your child will have to master


By Sylvia Sanders
Miami Times Writer
Just the name alone,
summer break, implies
you're going to take a
break from something.
Most adults would agree
that children deserve some
respite from nine months
of books, classrooms and
teachers. The dilemma is
just how much vacation
is reasonable. Is it wise to
allow children 13 weeks
of playing, sleeping and
generally unproductive
existence?


As a parent, your
minimum goal over the
summer should be to
maintain not lose the skills
your child and teachers
have spent nine months
developing. If you do not
present children with a
plan for the summer they
will simply eat, sleep and
play. Sorry, you do not get
a break from being a parent
even during the summer.
We do not expect you to
develop a rigid schedule of
assignments and activities
that will take all the fun
out of summer vacation.


Instead, look for moments
to re-teach the skills
already learned. Find
creative ways to maintain
structure and a sense of
responsibility so that when
school restarts in the fall,
the child has not become
lazy and irresponsible.
High school age children
should definitely enhance
their summer learning
through working in the real
world. Learningis alife-long
process and can take place
in all sorts of environments
outside of school walls.
Museums, libraries, nature


walks, and even grocery
shopping can all become
productive learning
experiences. Visit www.
partnershipforlearning.org
to find creative, inexpensive
and entertaining
suggestions for teaching
your child math, science
and reading during the
summer.
Ron Cassie of the Tam pa
Bay Examiner reported
that three Johns Hopkins
University sociologists (Karl
Alexander, Doris Entwisle
and Linda Steffel Olson)

Children are bullied more

frequently than parents

and teachers know a ..


By Sylvia Sanders
Miami Times Writer


A bully is defined as anyone
who is habitually cruel or
overbearing, .especially -,to
smaller or weaker people. A few
synonyms for the word bully
are: frightening, terrorizing,
intimidating and domineering.
When we think about bullying
more than likely a school yard
scene comes to mind. However,
this type of harassment also
goes on in private homes where
older bigger brothers torment
their younger siblings. Bullying
also takes place in marriages
where emotional pain is
inflicted upon the dependent
spouse by the spouse who is
the major breadwinner or has
financial control. Bullies are
also found in the workplace
where it is a much more delicate
situation and difficult to prove.



BULLY


Shamefully, even elderly people
are bullied by their adult
children and caretakers.
Most adults downplay bullying
usually because it is their child
who is the perpetrator. It is a
fact that parents and teachers
are not omnipresent and
therefore cannot be everywhere
at all times. Consequently,
children are inevitably going
to be alone from time-to-time
and they will need to know how
to handle themselves. Just as
parents take the time to teach
a child to ride a bike and safely
cross the street, it is just as
important to teach children
how to interact with all types of
people, including their peers. In
today's world we cannot simply
walk around looking through
rose colored glasses thinking
our child's day at school is going
to be all cookies and cream.
Let's bring it closer to home -
how many of you have had your
sons come home without their


sneakers or their watches and
jewelry stolen? Those items
were not simply left unguarded
in the locker room; some bully
walked up to your son and
either snatched&it or demanded
that they take it off. Tot save
face your child may lie and say
they took it off during P.E. and
it was stolen when in actuality
they were terrorized into giving
it up.
Bullying has evolved right
along with everything else that
is evil in our world. Twenty years
ago, children considered to be
nerds or square were usually
verbally harassed, teased,
lunch money taken and were
often made to do the homework
of their tormentors. Bullying
is much more serious now as
evidenced by the Columbine
shootings in 1999 and the
recent suicide of Megan Meier
who was taunted by other girls

It is not by accident
that a child is bullied
- he or she has been
singled out. Bullies
look for any sign of
weakness, they look
for isolated children
who do not belong to
a group of friends


on Myspace. Adults cannot
downplay the seriousness of
what bullying can lead to. If
your child comes to you with a
complaint that a group of kids
are picking on him or excluding
him from certain groups or
activities, look into it. Use calm
measured methods to follow-
up with your child's complaint.
Don't go out to the school
acting worse than the bullies
and absolutely do not start
escorting your child or teenager
to school.
A good approach is for a
couple of strapping uncles to
show up after school regularly
at football practice to assist
the coach. Or, the mother can
volunteer to assist the band.
Bullies need to see that your
child is not alone. Make friends
with parents of the bullies. This
may be something you're not so
eager to do since after all these
are the parents of the kid that

It seems like yesterday but in
reality it's been a year, and for
every moment of that time you
have been in our thoughts. You
never said 'I'm leaving", you
never said 'Goodbye', you were
gone before we knew it and only
God knows why. If tears could
build a stairway and memories
a lane, we'd walk all the way to
heaven to bring you back again.
You are truly missed and will
never be forgotten We love
you.

documented evidence that
future academic success can
be explained, to a significant
degree, by experiences during
summer vacations in the
elementary school years.
Alexander said, "a more
enriching family environment
over the school break if
newspapers and magazines
are around the house, if the
parents are college-educated, if
children are taken to the library
and museums, if they're in
organized sports, for example-
makes a quantifiable difference
in academic achievement."
This resonates the truth that
parents are the best role models
for their children. Regardless of
the popularity of athletes and
entertainers, parents are still
the largest influence in their
children's lives.

George T. Butler Jr., an
influential figure in the
business of jazz as an artists
and repertoire man and record
company executive, died April
9 at Eden Medical Center in
Castro Valley, Calif. He was 76.
Mr. Butler was diagnosed
with Alzheimer's disease in
2005, but died of multiple organ
failure, his sister Jacqueline
Butler Hairston said. His overall
medical condition took a turn
for the worse in January after


Connick Jr. In the years he
worked for Biue Note Records
before moving to Columbia, he
oversaw scores of albums by jazz
legends including Horace Silver,
Donald Byrd, Elvin Jones and
Bobby Hutcherson. He also led
Blue Note in a more commercial
direction with fusion artists
including Earl Klugh, Ronnie
Laws and Bobbi Humphrey.
As he explained to critic

Howard Reich of the Chicago
Tribune in ,1993, his strategy to
bring in young artists playing
fusion jazz had the end result
of helping the mainstream

"We were selling major
numbers of the young
artists," Mr. Butler said, "and
that increased the sales of
artists like Horace Silver and
Bobby Hutcherson, Stanley

In the late 1970s, he was
hired by Bruce Lundvall, then
the president of CBS Records
as Columbia's jazz artist and
repertoire man. In that role, he
was instrumental in bringing
the Marsalis brothers and
Connick into the company.
Mr. Butler's influence also

"I wanted to get back to the
dress codes that some of the
be-bop guys were known for ...
and it caught on," he said in
the 1993 interview.
Born Sept. 2, 1931, in
Charlotte, N.C., Mr. Butler
attended Howard University
and received a master's degree
in music education from

He started in the music
business at United Artists
Records before moving on to

to Columbia, he was influential
in coaxing Miles Davis out of
retirement and back into the
studio in 1980. He also worked

east San Francisco Bay, and fell
in a nearby creek bed, becoming
entangled upside down in some
bushes.
He spent more than 36 hours
outdoors, his sister said, before
police and other searchers
found him. The incident made
headlines in the Bay Area and
marked a sad episode in the life
of a man once considered one of
the most influential figures in
jazz.
As an A&R man for Columbia,
Mr. Butler was credited with

weaknesses. Ask what are
going to be the expectations
and skills for the next grade
level that your child will have to
master. Inquire about activities
and reading material that can
help the child prepare for the
fall so he can get off to a good
start.
If a camp or program is
within your means, look for one
that encourages leadership,
life skills and community
service. Learning is more
than reading, writing and
arithmetic. Learning seeks to
make the child well-rounded
in all aspects of living.
Whoever wrote the cliche...
"an idle mind is the devil's
workshop" knew that people,
especially young people, with
too much free time on their
hands often find themselves
getting into mischief which
brings us to the next reasonwhy
structure is just as important
during the summer as it is
during the regular school year.
Accidents involving children


peak during the month of July
due to summer break. More
cases of drowning and injuries
occur during summer break
because children are not
supervised as closely.
1 Timothy 5:13 and II
Thessalonians 3:11 teach
us that being idle leads to
wandering, gossip, busy
bodies, and walking in a
disorderly manner. As parents,
do not allow your teenagers to
wander aimlessly up and down
the streets in groups as this
kind of nonproductive activity,
once the kids become bored,
can lead to behavior that is
often illegal.
Let us go to the ant as
instructed in Proverbs 6:6 to
hear the final Word on what
our children's summer break
should be like. We see in verses
six through eleven of chapter
six of Proverbs that the ant
has no ruler or guide over it (in
other words there is no teacher
standing over the ant to make
it study or work).

a rose stem which was
presented to the mother of
the Bud and walked dignified
to the mother and the next
stop.
When the last Bud was
presented, "I'm a Bud of
Spring" song filled the
auditorium, as the young
ladies waltzed onto the
dance to begin their dance
routines and (the singing of
the song. They emulated
a bud growing to become a
flower and a beauty that's
fit for a King as they formed
a huge image facing their
parents. In that formation,
they sang to the crowd and
completed with a courtesy.
The music changed to
Satin Doll, while they pranced
and danced into a circle
which covered the floor.
Subsequently, the escorts

potential vendors, service providers, bidders, lobbyists, or consultants and the County's professional staff, including but not limited to the County Manager and the County Manager's staff. A Cone of Silence is
also imposed between the Mayor, County Commissioners'or their respective staffs and any member of the County's professional staff including, but not limited to, the County Manager and the County Manager's

In addition to any other penalties provided by law, violation of Miami-Dade County Code Section 2-11.1(t) by any bidder or proposer shall render any RFP award, RFQ award, or bid award voidable. Any person
having personal knowledge of'a violation of this Ordinance shall report such violation to the State Attorney and/or may file a complaint with the Ethics Commission. Bidders or Proposers should reference the ac-
tual Ordinance for further clarification.

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


Are we in the business of keeping' Blacks back?


By William Reed g'
Business Exchange

In her recent


U.S. Assistant
Secretary of State Jendayi
Frazer sought to press
regional leaders to take
a tougher stance against
Zimbabwe's President
Robert Mugabe. To hear
Frazer tell it, the reason
Zimbabwe's economy is
close to collapse is due to
Mugabe's government's
economic mismanagement
and repression. The Black
Secretary of State's position
is that Zimbabwe "would
have been a prosperous
country," but is now in
ruin because of Mugabe's
government. She is urging
Zimbabwe's neighbor
governments to help nudge
Mugabe's regime out for "a
democratic government".
The "democratic
government" Frazer
promotes is the Movement
fo4 Democratic Change
(MDC). Mugbe's ZANU-PF
party people say the Anglo-
American agenda Frazer is
promoting "menaces their
ability to govern" and is
the cause of the country's
spiraling inflation and
its public's plummeting
standard of living. They
allege that the West's
sanctions and interventions


are a familiar imperialist
pattern: soften the nation
with sanctions that cripple
the economy; blame the
resulting economic disaster
on the government to build
support for the opposition;
fund opposition party, press
and anti-government NGOs
to tilt election processes
in directions favorable to
Western interests; and,
sponsor and encourage
opposition
mass actions.
The Anglo-
American
coalition
began n
applying
economic
pressure on
Zimbabwe in
2001. The
World Bank
and International Monetary
Fund (IMF) started to
dissuade international
bankers from extending
Zimbabwe financial credit.
The IMF declared Zimbabwe
ineligible to use its general
resources and President
George W. Bush signed
into law the Zimbabwe
Democracy and Economic
Recovery Act of 2001,
directing the Treasury
Department to instruct U.S.
members of international
financial institutions to
oppose and vote against any
extension of any/loan, credit
or guarantee to Zimbabwe.


The law also authorized
President Bush to directly
fund opposition media as
well as "democracy and
governance programs"
for organizations opposed
to the government. The
British government too
opposes Zimbabwe having
any access to international
financial institutions and
has threatened to eliminate
financial assistance
to southern African
nations unless they too


highly educated and skilled
workforce and access to
regional markets. But,
Zimbabwean companies
are compelled to deal with
international suppliers
strictly on cash up front
basis and minimal credit
terms.
Neighbors know

percent of its oil, 40 percent
of its electricity and most
of its spare parts and, that

of a law making it illegal
for political parties in
Zimbabwe to receive funding
from abroad has been an
obstacle to the MDC and
its backers. There's little
appeal for the MDC program
among rural populations.
MDC programs calls for
privatization of state owned
firms and government
services. ZANU-PF
programs did away with
land ownership patterns
that were concentrated
among a few
white commercial


farmers.
Secretary
Frazer's plea
for Zimbabwe's
Southern African


neighbors to
oppose Mugabe
fell on 9eft ears.
Members of the Southern
Africa Development
Community (SADC) know
Mugabe as an African icon,
and the harm Western
sanctions have wrought on
Zimbabwe. In rebuffing
Frazer, SADC leaders
"reaffirmed solidarity with
the government and people
of Zimbabwe" and appealed
to Great Britain in a clear
message to "honor its
compensation obligations
with regard to land reform,"
and called on the Anglo-
American alliance to "lift
of all forms of sanctions
against Zimbabwe."

Florida's rising unemployment rate remains below national
tfrogf w .--- m iyI ionua. 13 .--. -viu--_ay- -M i.P.l


increase awareness of programs
Education and health continues job growth while statewide total declines that help Florida's businesses
and workforce," said Monesia T.


TALLAHASSEE -
Florida's seasonally adjusted
unemployment rate for March
2008 is 4.9 percent. The rate
represents 452,000 jobless out
of a labor force of 9,215,000
and is a 9.3 percentage point
rise over the month and 1.2
percentage points rise over the
year. Florida's March 2008
unemployment rate is the highest


since February 2004 which was
also 4.9 percent. The state's
unemployment rate remains
belowthenationalunemployment
rate of 5.1 percent.
Florida's nonagricultural
employment growth rate for
March 2008 is -0.7 percent. The
rate represents a loss of 56,600
jobs over the year to reach a total
employment level of 8,014,500.


This is slower than the national
job growth rate for March which
is +0.4 percent over the year. The
March 2008 job growth rate of
-0.7 percent continues the trend
of negative over-the-year growth
that began in September 2007,
primarily due to declines in
construction.
"In these economic times, we
continue to work diligently to


Brown, Director of the Agency for
Workforce Innovation. "Workforce
Florida-led initiatives, as well as
services and resources available
through Florida's 24 regional
workforce boards and nearly
100 One-Stop Career Centers,
support employment and training
opportunities in high-skill, high-
wage and high-demand sectors.
These programs are accessible


through www.EmpioyFloridnaa.
com."
The Agency for Workforce
Innovation works closely with
Workforce Florida, Inc. and
its Regional Workforce Board
partners, the Florida Chamber
of Commerce and Enterprise
Florida, Inc. to develop world-
class talent and sustain
personal and economic growth
for Florida's employers and job
seekers. These programs include
the Short Time Compensation


Program, a voluntary emIplUoyerc
program designed to help
employers maintain their
workforce by offsetting the cost
of full-time wages, instead of
temporarily laying off employees;
the Quick Response Training
Program, providing customized
training for new or expanding
businesses; and the Incumbent
and Employed Worker Training
Programs, offering upgrade skills
training for existing full-time
employees.

BLACKS MUST CONTROL THEIR OWN DESTINY


10D THE MIAMI TIMES, MAY 7-13, 2008


Senator wins compensation for


wrongful jail time for felons


TALLAHASSEE Floridians wrongfully
imprisoned for crimes they did not commit will
finally be eligible for automatic compensation by
the state under legislation successfully passed by
Senator Arthenia Joyner (D-Tampa).
The bill, passed by the Senate 37-1
earlier this month and unanimously
endorsed by the House this week, is
now headed to the governor's desk
for signature. If approved, Senator
Joyner's legislation means Florida will
join the ranks of twenty-three other
states and the District of Columbia in
automatically compensating former
inmates for the years they served in
prison for crimes they did not commit.
"It's not everything I was attempting
to correct within our criminal justice
system," said the Senator. "But it's
a good start. This is the Legislature JQ1
understanding that Florida has a
responsibility to right the wrongs of the past."
Under the measure, former prisoners would
receive $50,000 for each year unjustly spent in
prison, up to $2 million, or 40 years behind bars.
They would also receive 120 hours of tuitionpcredit
to attend a Florida college or university.
The legislation finally puts an end to the
bureaucratic maze those wrongfully incarcerated
had to navigate in order to win any compensation
for the years they spent behind bars. Until now, the
legislative "claims bill" process was the only recourse
those wrongfully imprisoned could follow to secure
reimbursement for the years they lost, such as Alan
Crotzer, Freddie Pitts and William Lee.
All three spent decades in prison for crimes they
did not commit. Crotzer, who was finally approved
this year for $1.25 million in compensation by the
state, spent almost 25 years in prison for two rapes
he did not commit. Under the claims bill process,
it took him two years to win that compensation,
which amounts to about $137 for each day he
spent in prison.
Pitts and Lee spent 12 years on Florida's Death
Row for two 1963 murders they did not commit. It
took them 23 years to wrest compensation from
the state. They each finally received $500,000 'in
1998.
"When the guilt lies
in the hands of the FREE PAIN
state, the state ought AN APIj-
to be obligated to
make restitution for its LOCATE ETWEE
mistakes just as those a.nd 62nd.
we send to prison," said
Senator Joyner. Pr.oid .N e g
The Tampa Democrat- rsomoderat-
noted, however, that
she was disappointed T n e rainfl
in one provision some Ni *lgh bohodH
lawmakers insisted ei-t. 232


r


on including in her legislation in order to secure
passage. That provision, known as the "clean
hands" provision, disqualifies anyone with a prior
felony conviction from eligibility in the automatic
compensation process. Those individuals would
still have to pursue their cases for
compensation by petitioning the
Legislature through the arduous
claims bill process.
For example, Alan Crotzer would have
been ineligible for the new automatic
compensation because he had been
previously convicted of stealing beer
during a convenience store hold up.
"Just because someone may have
been previously convicted of an offense
unrelated to the crime for which
they're unjustly imprisoned, shouldn't
be grounds to disqualify them from
NER automatic compensation," she said. "A
prior, unrelated mistake shouldn't be a
ball and chain to which they're forever shackled."
According to the Innocence Project of Florida,
which works to free those wrongfully imprisoned,
nine people have been freed thus far in the state
thanks to DNA evidence proving their innocence.
Of those, two have already been compensated
and one has died.
Of the remaining six, only two would be
eligible for automatic compensation, according
to Senator Joyner, a disappointment she said,
since other states with a similar system have no
such disqualification provision based on prior
convictions for unrelated crimes.
Senator Joyner vowed to correct Florida's clean
hands provision in the future.
"Our state is moving,
slowly and painfully,
into a more just system,
but at least it is moving,"
she said. "Where
previously we had no
automatic system for
the state to even admit
its mistakes, we now
have an official way
for Florida to atone for
them.
