1. Call the President of the United States of America, a thief, a liar, etc., in the event the shoe fits.

2. Enable you to engage in a civil and/or criminal litigation against an individual, group of individuals, business, group of businesses, etc., in the event crimes of bribery, perjury, theft, grand theft, larceny, grand larceny, fraud, conspiring to commit fraud, illegal seizure of person(s), illegal seizure of property, and many more. I did not even mention discrimination, for this does not have the teeth that these other crimes have, plus Black people are summoned to court for serious offenses, and discrimination is not included in the crimes that Black people are charged with.

3. Make statements that a Chief Executive Officer and President of any business entity, charitable organization, community group, etc., who has thirteen illegitimate children by eight different women, is not fit to be honored and/or paid tribute to, for to be of good moral character is a must, in any organized society.

4. Enable anyone who has good moral character, to call agents and officials of government, meaning police officers, social workers, probation officers, judges, public defenders, etc., a bunch of crooks if the shoe fits.

5. In the event you are illegally incarcerated, be it a local jail, a state prison, a federal penetentiary, etc., an individual can firmly state, and maintain, his and/or her innocence without ever cowaring to a plea bargaining deal.

6. Call the preacher in the pulpit a no-good sacriligious jack-leg preacher, in the event a plea for help is asked for which is not unreasonable, and you are arrested for tresspass on church property, because the preacher effected a citizen's arrest. This is a huge violation of the meaning of the 'Lord's Prayer'. On the day of the trial the preacher who accused you of tresspass is not present, the courts change the nature of the proceedings to protect the integrity of the church by changing the tresspass on church property, to that of commercial property. The policy makers of the organized church where the arrest took place closes down the church forever rather than to lose their good name because of one minister who shows no regard for the church, pertaining to total disregard for the lords prayer. A church is supposed to be a sacred place, for even outlaws on the run, seek out the church for refuge, for the posse's respect for the church, waits until the outlaw(s) leave the premises of the church before continuing pursuit.

7. Enable anyone of good moral principles, to cite the poem, 'If', which describes the true meaning of manhood and/or womanhood, with a true feeling of authority, be it before an audience of millions, the audience of one, or all alone in the wilderness.

8. Stand tall and state to another, 'How Dare You Dispute My Integrity, for Without Proof Your Allegations are Unfounded, and In the Event No Corrective Action is Taken to Retract Such Statements, and/or Statements, I Will Take Legal Action Against You'.

Numbers one through eight, and/or other examples, can be stated freely, through the use of your birthname, whether by voice, through a signed affidavit, without the use of any alias name.

Miss Donna Brazile, had to have good character to make the statements that she made which accused Colin Powell, and J.C. Watts of flunkying for the Republican Party, "the white boys", at the expense of Black America. It took a lot of courage and strong conviction to do this, for the Republican Party is very wealthy, for to upset their program may mean financial ruin for Miss Donna Brazile, in the event she does not have strong evidence to support her statements. An individual with any skeletons in the closet rarely moves in this fashion, thus my belief is that Ms. Donna Brazile must be of good moral character.

In the eyes of God, in the true spirit of self, in any worthy family, in any worthy community, and/or truly equitable Nation, to be of good moral character, is a very powerful force to be reckoned with, for a thousand falsehoods cannot stand up against one single grain of truth.
Sincerely,

Mr. Lofton,
One question, who determines who has good moral character? Doesn't everyone have their own opinions/definitions of morals. Don't we all set our own morals?

Michael...

When one truly has "good moral character," not only can they do as you have listed, but I feel it is their responsibility to call to attention those things.

I read the other post about Mfume. I was stunned into silence because I had not heard that before. Do you have a verifiable source for that info? I trust that you, as usual, are reliable with your information, but I just as we must be wary in believing everything that is submitted to us by others, it is good to question issues for ourselves and research items of interest so that we are going on our own knowledge.

This was an excellent post and one that should be considered. As we live our daily lives, have we lived with good moral character? Are we taking responsibility for our mistakes and trying to make adjustments where necessary? Are we calling to task those that would mislead or misinform us? Are we holding our elected and even appointed officials to a high level of conduct?

I realize that your post may be autobiographical to an extent. You have earned your stripes, Michael. Much love to ya!

Hello LatteeLadee,

I have relatives on both coasts, who are much older than I, who have shared this information with me, and several years back an article was printed in one of Maryland's, newspapers regarding Mfume, his thirteen illegitimate children by eight different woman. I respect my elders, especially those who are very reputable. This is why some people change their birthname so as not to draw attention to a very dark past. I've known of this for some time, and it really hurts me to know that honest individuals from Black America are being duped 'Big Time', into contributing their hard earned income, to an organization that is totally worthless and deceitful, meaning the NAACP.
Thank you for the compliment, LatteeLadee, for when an individual(s) looks at several aspects of an issue, and applies good reasoning to the facts, reasonable men and/or women, will make a good judgment call. It is truly an honor to receive this response from you as well, for this lets me know that all of Black America is not asleep, in terms of the real qualities in life, meaning sanctity of family, good moral character, respect for what is truly right in life, and truly making your beliefs a part of every day life. As J.C. Watts, stated in his campaign speech for political office, 'Character of an Individual is Judged by What You Do When No One is Looking'. This is a very good barometer of good character in an individual.

You are right in your assessment, that this chain of events, is part of real to life occurances in my life. The Preacher's name is Reverend F. L. Horton, the Church involved is Bethel United Methodist Church, to which the United Methodist Church, both washed their hands of Reverend F. L. Horton, dis-associated themselves from and closed down Bethel United Methodist Church, which was on 80th Street and Hoover in South Central Los Angeles. This is how all my sisters, and brothers ended up in foster homes, for my Dad and Mom went to jail, never to be faced by their accuser. My people were steered in this direction by other United Methodist Church members, and an appointment was arranged for my Dad and Mom, to see Reverend F. L. Horton. Horton's statements to my Dad and Mom is that 'If You Do Not Get Off My Church Property I Will Have You Arrested for Tresspass'. My Dad in turn stated to Reverend F.L. Horton, 'Let God's Will Be Done'.
Furthermore, my Grandfather was a traveling, United Methodist Minister, who helped many Black families in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and other states. Because of his work in life, many other United Methodist Ministers of Black American heritage have had a chance, to prove themselves. I posted this information sometime ago, on the Broiler, regarding by grandfather, Reverend Eli Lofton, who spoke several languages fluently. He died when I was five years old, for if he were alive, what happened to my family, would have been resolved many years ago. Furthermore, he was man enough to break the truth to the masses of Black people, and not beat around the bush like some of our people in positions of responsibility do today.

Sincerely,

Michael Lofton

I owe you an apology, LatteLadee, in that I added one too many 'eees' in the previous posting, in regards to the spelling of your name. I feel just as honored to know you, for it sure pays to be real to both self and others in life.

Sincerely,

Michael Lofton
