Three Attempts To Rob Bank


Going Through Drive Thru


Bonita Dannette Clark
Suspect
JACKSONVILLE, Fla.
-- A man and two women
went through the drive
thru at Bank of America on
State Street and according
to the teller, she was hand-
ed a note on withdrawal
slip stating: "I got a gun
put money in bag." The
teller observed that a gun
was not visible. The teller,
who has a heart condition
and wears a pace maker,
said her heart began to
race because of the fear
but that did not stop her
from reacting promptly by
activating the alarm and
officers arrived quickly at
the bank. When the offi-

The Consequences Of Marriage For African

Americans-Black Men Benefit More


A newly released study
by a team of family schol-
ars finds that marriage typ-
ically brings a host of
important benefits to
African American men,
women, and children. On
average, married African
Americans are wealthier,
happier, and choose
healthier behaviors than
their unmarried peers, and
their children typically
fare better in life--differ-
ences that seem to stem
largely from marriage
itself.
At the same time, how-


ever, African American
women tend to benefit
from marriage less than
Whites and men. These are
among the key findings
presented in The
Consequences of Marriage
for African Americans, a
first-of-its-kind report
based on reviews of 125
social science articles and
a new statistical analysis
of national survey data.
The study was conduct-
ed by leading family
scholars under the aus-
pices of the Institute for
American Values, a non-
partisan think-tank based
in New York City.
According to Dr. Linda
Malone-Colon, one of the
report's authors:
"This groundbreaking
study of African American
marriage offers more hard
evidence of what most
Black people (and White
people) already know in
their hearts -- that mar-
riage matters.
Marriage is literally
good for the health and
well being of men, women

and children.
Furthermore, this impor-
tant study offers compre-
hensive evidence that
efforts to strengthen
African American mar-
riages in our country are
an important means to

NEWS IN BRIEF
Hilda Wooten Passes

Hilda Wooten, sister
of the late Mary Wooten
Simpson, wife of the
founder of The Florida
Star, and dedicated work-
er and reader of The Star
died Saturday, October
22, 2005 in Jacksonville.
As a long-time member
of Historical Mt. Zion
AME Church, funeral
services for the retired
educator will be at the
sanctuary on Saturday,
October 29 at 10:00 a.m.
She leaves to mourn, a
son, nieces, nephews,
sister and a host of rela-
tives and friends.


Clark, alias Anita A.
Griffin, 46, Mary Janice
Thompson, 47 and Marise
Cheval Marshall, 32, (driv-
er) immediately drove
away and proceeded north
on Laura Street.
The officers followed
them, joined by two other
officers, initiated a traffic
stop on Main Street and
detained the three sus-
pects. It was apparent that
the three suspects had not
strategically planned the
robbery since the attempt
was made while going
through a drive thru.
Bonita Clark stated while
in the officer's vehicle that
the other female did the
robbery attempt and that


she did not know what was
going on until the attempt
was already in progress
and the other suspect told
her what was going on.
She further stated that she
had only known Mary for
.about four hours and that
they had both been smok-
ing crack earlier. She fur-
ther advised that Mary
kept her crack in a green
lip balm.
Crack was found near
the suspect in a green iip
balm and all three were
arrested and charged with
armed robbery with a
weapon other than deadly
and person in actual or
constructive possession of
cocaine power or crack.


She Stood Up For Civil Rights By

Sitting Down-Rosa Parks, Mother Of

The Civil Rights Movement, Dead At 92
December 1, 2005 would have marked fifty
years since Rosa Park made a decision to dis-
obey the segregation laws of public transporta-
tion and not give a white man her seat on the
city bus. But December 1, 1955 was not the
first time Rosa Parks had refused to give up her
seat and she was not the first to make that deci- .
sion but on that day in Birmingham, Alabama .. .
when she was just too tired, the quiet, 42-year-
old seamstress' decision to defy the laws of
racial injustice sparked a movement in America
that changed this country. And so, .when she
died quietly in her Detroit home Monday
evening of natural causes, many Americans
stopped to give her honor. Born February 4,
1913, she was 92.
In 1955, laws in America, termed "Jim
Crow" laws, required the separation of black
and white people in public facilities throughout
the South. Blacks could not drink out of the
same fountain, eat in the same area, ride Rosa Parks
together on the bus or train, walk down the
street together, sleep in the same facility and marriage or dating was totally out of
order. In fact, blacks were required to step aside and allow a white to pass if they met
on the sidewalk.
But on that day in Alabama, Rosa Park would not move. But when one looks at
her background, one would see that she was a member of the NAACP; was married

For those of you who
honestly believe that life
couldn't possibly be any
worse than it is now, con-
sider what life would be
like for Black people if
Rosa Parks had gone to
the back of the bus. Ever
think about that? Imagine
a life without civil rights,
a life where affirmative
action never happened, a
life where legalized seg-
regation was still the
order of the day, a life
where racial discrimina-
tion against Black people
was still completely
acceptable.
Just imagine.
Some of you reading
this can still remember
what those days were
like, which means you
know from personal
experience what a differ-
ence Rosa Parks' deci-
sion made in your life.
You remember what it
was like before, and you
know what it's like today.
You remember the segre-
gated restrooms and the
segregated water foun-
tains You remember not
being served in the
stores, being thrown out

of the stores into the
street. You remember
coming through the back
door. You remember the
lynchings, the cross burn-
ings, the dogs, and the
police officers who had
no intention of ever pro-
tecting you or serving
you but who would crack
your skull like an egg if
you dared look at a white
person the wrong way or
spoke too 'uppity'. Those
images are burned forev-
er into the bitter flesh of
your memory like
enraged demons who
won't rest. Sometimes,
even today, those demons
infect your dreams, kid-
napping your hard-
earned peace of mind.
You, the elders, know
how bad life can really be
for a Black person living
in America. No doubt
you're also aware that
this is not paradise we're
living in today, but judg-
ing from what my own
mother and my late
grandfather told me
about those days, I think
it's safe to say that
nobody who actually
lived through that period

Commentary
An America without Rosa Parks... ?

Keith A. Owens Senior Editor, the Michigan Chronicle


in history has any desire
to go back there ever
again.
For the younger gen-
eration of readers who
have no recollection of
those days, who only
know about Parks' con-
tributions from what
elder family members
told us, or from what we
have read in history
books, we need to stop
what we're doing for a
moment and take the
time to calculate the true
size of the giant. After all,
the true size of Rosa
Parks cannot possibly be
measured in feet or inch-
es. Like all great histori-
cal figures, Ms. Parks can
only be measured accu-
rately by the size of her
accomplishments. Once
seen in full, Ms. Parks'
shadow engulfs us all.
Just imagine.
Think, for a moment,
about the hundreds of
Black elected political
officials in office
throughout the country.
Think about all the Black
mayors, judges, police
officers, firefighters,
business owners. Think
about names like publish-
ing giant John Johnson,
former Secretary of State
Colin Powell, Black
Enterprise publisher Earl


Graves, talk show host
and billionaire entrepre-
neur Oprah Winfrey, civil
rights leader Jesse
Jackson, Illinois Sen.
Barack Obama, the late
Mayor Coleman Young,
and on and on and on.
The shadow engulfs us
all.
And whether you sup-
port the re-election of
Detroit Mayor Kwame
Kilpatrick or his chal-
lenger Freman Hendrix,
would we even be wit-
nessing such a race
between these two men
to run a major urban city
like Detroit if it weren't
for Rosa Parks? Would
they have even had
access to the experiences
necessary to qualify them
for such a job? And if
they did manage to quali-
fy, would it have even
mattered in a Detroit
where Rosa Parks gave
up her seat to a White
person and decided to
accept second-class citi-
zenship? If you think
Detroit is a hard place to
live now, just imagine...
What kind of America
would we be living in if
Rosa Parks had said,
"OK, I'll move?"

A.B. COLEMAN
DIRECTOR
110% TO PLAN WAKE


Sudden death is, by defi-
nition, an event for which we
are unprepared. Unlike the
death of someone very old, or
someone with a terminal ill-
ness, it is a death which has
not been anticipated and is
often quite difficult to accept.
When a-family is faced
with a sudden accidental
death, it can be very helpful if
they are able to view the
body.
In the case of serious
injuries and damage, it is very
often possible to prepare -the
body in an acceptable fashion
so that the family can view


the loved one in order to face
the reality of the death.
On the other hand, if the'
victim of sudden death is
kept from view, it can cause a
lot ofpsychlologic.l problems
for the survivors. As clinical
data has demonstrated, pre-
venting the family from see-
ing the body can keep them
in the stag, .of denial for
years to come,., and prevent
them from accepting their
loss.

As the fascinating evening approached coming to a
close the host and hostess presented Oprah's coffee
table book 'Live Your Best Life' and as The Moles and

his wife in each of the books.
As always, the Moles and Mules fulfilled its motto

stores that were open after
Hurricane Wilma cut a cost-
ly, deadly swath across the
peninsula.
The storm slammed

in insured damage and leav-
ing 5.9 million people, or a
little less than 3 million
homes and businesses, with-
out electricity .
NMore than 5.000 resi-
dents remained in shelters,

remnants headed toward the
North Atlantic.
Wilma was blamed for at
least five deaths in Florida.

report to five deaths.
Officials of Florida's
three most populous areas --
Miami-Dade, Broward and
Palm Beach counties -- pre-
pared to distribute ice, water

Carlos Alvarez said.
Before smashing into
Florida, Wilma killed at
least six people in Mexico.
one person in Jamaica and
12 people in Haiti.
In Florida, most stores

the widespread power out-
ages, creating long lines at
those that were open.

Annual Report Finds Black Consumers, Despite Reducing


Expenditures, Still Out-Spend Whites In Key Categories


As the American econo-
my continues to move slug-
gishly, African-American
households are cutting back
their spending in many cate-
gories, including food,
clothing and basic house-
hold items, while investing
more in home repair, home
entertainment and consumer
electronics.
Although they are trim-
ming back, black consumers
are still spending niore than
their white counterparts on
most of these products.
According to the newest
edition of "The Buying
Power of Black America"
report, African-American
households are tightening
their belts when it comes to
dining out, expanding their
wardrobes, and leisure
activities out of the home.
At the same time, they
are increasing their spend-
ing on home repairs and
remodeling, audio and visu-
al electronics, and contribu-
tions to churches.
The report also estimates
that black households col-
lectively had earned income
of $679 billion in 2004.
"More than ever,
African-Americans are
seeking to get the most for
their dollars," said Ken
Smikle, president of Target
Market News and publisher
of the report. "As theN spend
more time at. home with


their families, black con-
sumers are focused on
increasing the quality of
home life. However, the fact
that they are still spending
more on average than whites
on certain food, apparel and
media-related products
demonstrates that their
lifestyles are not changing
radically."
African-American
households spent more per
capital than white house-
holds in the categories of
food, apparel, consumer
electronics, media, personal


care products, gifts, tele-
phone service and appli-
ances.
This trend is highlighted
in the annually published
report from Target Market
News, a 17-year-old
Chicago-based research and
information company that
specializes in tracking
African-American market-
ing, media and consumer
behavior. "The Buying
Power of Black America,"
which has been published
annually for the past 12
years, is one of the most


widely quoted sources of
information on black con-
sumer spending. The report
details how millions of dol-
lars have been spent by
black consumers in more
than 500 categories.
"This change in expendi-
tures by black consumers
means that obtaining and
holding on to their loyalty
will be more competitive for
marketers," said Smikle.
"This represents a time of
opportunity for those com-
panies that can demonstrate
they are serious about pro-


viding value for these cus-
tomers."
According to the report,
black households had $679
billion in earned income in
2004, an increase of 3.5%
over the $656 earned in
2003.
Among the products and
services that showed the
greatest one-year increase
were sound systems
(+127%), computer online
services (+38%) and sports
and recreational equipment
(+19%), dishwashers (+
42%), washing machines

Orleans levees were blown
up by Whites in order to kill
Black residents. Farrakhan
also believes an evil Black
scientist created White peo-
ple. As long, as the main-
stream media refuses to
expose, these -crazy ideas
Farrakhan and the liberal
Black leaders will continue
to fleece Blacks and further
divide the races."


(+45%), and contributions to
churches (+19%).
"The Buying Power of
Black America," a 104-page
report, is based on an analy-
sis of expenditures reported
by 3,000 black households
for the, Department of
Commerce's Consumer
Expenditure Survey.

Popular African American Shopping Portal
Adds African American History Facts Page
Eric Brown the founder of the "African American Shopping
,Today" website located at www.brownhorizonsshopping.com ,
which is widely considered one'of the most popular African
American shopping websites on the internet today, recently
announced the addition of an African American History Facts
page to his website.
Mr. Brown provided these comments recently concerning the
addition of the African American History Facts page to his
African .American Shopping Portal "African American
Shopping Today." "African Americans have made many great
contributions to the United States as well as the world at large in
almost every field of endeavor known to man.
However, history tends to overlook or briefly mention the
many contributions and achievements made by African
Americans. With our heritage and culture being studied and/or
discussed less and less in our educational system and only writ-
ten about in rare instances in history books and archives, I want-
ed to bring to the forefront the achievements and contributions
made by an entire race of people -African Americans. Many who
*are already well known; but also many who have never received
the acknowledgment due them for their achievements and contri-
butions.

FedEx to Settle Bias Claim for $500,000
ST. LOUIS FedEx Freight East will pay $500,000 to settle a
lawsuit filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity
Commission over allegations that the company discriminated
against black dockworkers in St. Louis, the EEOC said.
FedEx Freight East is a subsidiary of Memphis, Tenn.-based
FedEx Corp., which acquired American Freightwaiys in 2001.
FedEx Freight said that in settling the case, it is not admitting dis-
crimination against black employees, and in fact, denies it. The
company, noting it does not tolerate discrimination in the work-
place, said the alleged events occurred before FedEx acquired
American Freightways in 2001.
The EEOC sued in,2003 on behalf of 20 blacks who worked
for American Freightways Inc. atthe time of the alleged bias. The
EEOC said blacks were denied promotions from part-time to full-
time jobs at the company's trucking terminal in St. Louis. Another
was denied promotion to a supervisory position. When the suit
was filed in September 2003, attorney Jerome Dobson said the
delays had significant effects on black workers who were seeking
more hours, better routes and pay, and promotion opportunities.
Meanwhile, he said, white workers "'capfr.hged" over the black
' workers.
Six black dockworkers joined ini the lawsuit and the settle-
ment. In addition to the $500,000 settlement, which must still be
approved by the U.S. District Court, FedEx will be. required.,to
report on promoti(ps to full-time dockworker positions and to,,
dock supervisor positions. "We are pleased that FedEx corrected
the problems at its St. Louis tenninal after
