Appeal To Mrs. Ward Connelly

On this 27th day of October in the year of our lord 2003 we black women are forced to come before you with a petition with regard to your husband's work. Your husband Ward Connelly has taken it upon himself to go on a mission that is detrimental to the well-being of we collective black Americans. We black women of America seek to get you to reason with his disposition that the damage he is doing may be aborted. The issue at hand, Affirmative action.

We are well aware that he is referred to as the ˜Father of Proposition 209' and we know he does not understand that he has done a disservice, incalcuble disservice, to black humanity. We have heard your husband's idea of rationale on the matter. We would like for you to take time out to hear the truth with regard to the importance of Afffirmative Action. You see Affirmative action is legalized black power of which we as a people are very proud of as it literal is written in the the blood, sweat and tears of many of our beloved black people who came before us. These valiant people are they who suffered the wrath of white male run America for wanting the freedoms the Constitution promised us as a people.
As so, Blacks fought to get legalized black power forever on the books to protect black people from prejudice white people. A permanent bill or law is necessary. It is solely your husband and his by and large white followers who are blinded to this reality. Yet this reality, is our heritage! A mark on America's books, marked with the stroke of a black finger, if you will. It is our collective black "John Hancock" given to American law, the necessary and crucial factor needed to make America work for black people. Unfortunately, It is none other than your husband who is blindly, going about stripping this prideful black heritage.

Understand this real significance with regard to the importance of Affirmative action is the crucial key that your husband doesn't get! The fact that a bill, a legalized bill, is on the books is a good fact! It protects from fallible white male nature that to this day keeps racism that horrible evil, alive and thriving. The only way we can equalize the matter is to keep a ˜safety net' legally on the books to restrain the madness. It is a good thing for any land, people, government on planet earth. Yet, your husband has been tricked by prejudice white males into seeing the ˜safety net' of ˜common sense' called Afffirmative action as a ˜bad thing that hurts white males' when it is not. You see your husband seems blinded to the reality that though blacks arose and fought a valiant fight to put the Civil Rights laws on the books, white males did not adhere to the law and so an additional bill had to be added to force them to adhere to the bill. This 1973 enacted bill is known as Affirmative action. It should be law, permanent law.

That black people were resisted all the way by the whites is proof that the whites need a permanent legalized watch, or safety net, to keep them from resisting doing right and just to their fellow black Americans. That they complained about the bill from day one, to the present is further ˜common sense' proof that the bill is needed. You see, the whites that held the power then, still hold the power now. That is, the white hierarchies to be exact. These control 100% of the wealth and resources of America. These, control the collective American tax dollar and where it will and will not go. These control the federal power and they alone, wield it according to the white male nature that is in them. These control the entire judicial hierarchy and racism abounds in this arena. These control the entire educational hierarchy and it is their white rule that decides what information will go into the textbooks of America to breed all Americans and there is racism that still abounds there. These control the military might of America and it is the white male nature that decides who will and will not be it's target and unfortunately Mrs. Connerly blacks are still racially targeted via the ˜police military' and on many other levels. It is these white males who run and control corporate America and racism still abounds therein.

The disparity in the numbers is not as your husband is deceived to believe because ˜blacks aren't qualified,' it is because of who holds the power. The wealth of America that grew from whites savagely enslaving blacks is in the hands of white males. They have the power to pick and choose whom they will and but for Affirmative action their ˜will' will be unleashed to pick whom they will, if you know what I mean. It is in this way, that a necessary law for black advantage up the ladder is permanently needed, not because we need a ˜hand-out' but because we need a ˜permanent legal ˜bill' and ˜law' to restrain white racist nature of those who act on such a horrible evil. In other words, unlike your husband, 'WE DO NOT TRUST EMPOWERED WHITE MALES!

The only thing that opened the door to stop white male racist nature was laws and bills on the books Mrs. Connerly. Laws and bills are not meant as ˜temporal' things to resolve a unresolvable human nature problem such as racism, rather it is put on the book to restrain that nature that America might be equal to all its citizens. Not just the white male power structure who controls and wields the power. In light of the fact that obvious racism exists and human nature is what it is, we use the common sense appeal to you with regard to Affirmative action. We appeal to your reason and common sense to see that if racism still exists today, then today, tomorrow forever, there needs to be safety nets on the books to restrain white racism. We appeal to your logic to see that if the white power structure is complaining about fairness with a law on the book, it shows they are not ready to be fair with one off the book. To take AA off the book will give the white male power structure the same un-restrained power they had over blacks in the segregation era and who then will be able to contain their madness?

See then, that affirmative action is not the problem, ignorance of affirmative action is the problem and your husband possesses that ignorance in abundance and therefore must be stopped! That he has reduced black women to having to appeal to a white woman to stop him from giving white males un-restrained power is proof that affirmative action is needed as the ˜equalizer.' However, because the lives of our sons and daughters are being put imminently in danger by your husband's blindness to the real matter at hand, we women for love of our collective black sons and daughters so approach you. We approach you to reason with your husband and get him to not only cease and desist, but get to repairing the damage that he has foolishly wrought.

We Thank You!

Hi black women, I think a good idea is for we black women to unite and bombard this woman with the truth with regard to affirmative action. If anyone knows email addresses to WARD CONNELLY do put it up here. I'll keep trying to find it. Let's unite and begin to wield the weapon of truth to counterattack the madness of this being.

Those of you who have computer smarts, print this or write a similar one, format it petition style, pass it around, and let's begin the counterattack along these lines. Do give me some feedback with regard to this matter.

P.S.. Note: I said, 'those of you who have computer smarts' with this 'tech junk' of which I have a love/hate relationship. Do know I'm not one of the ones who know how to operate this stupid thing. Actually, I hate it, and am proud of it. Other than talking to you all and putting out truth, I loathe it..... Mad
The only thing wrong with this letter is that it leaves out the fact that Affirmative Action has also been the bridge that White women crossed over discrimination, and that it was through Affirmative Action and the Civil Rights movement that changed the discriminatory immigration tactics previously used to keep foreign peoples of color out of this country. It leave out the fact that it was Affirmative Action and the Civil Rights movement that was the bridge that other people of color in this country used to cross over into acceptance (or tolerance) in the work place, in housing, in business, bank loans, in government contracts, and on and on and on. We have to stop acting like, and we have to stop allowing all the others in this country that Affirmative Action actually aided in one way or another to stop acting like Affirmative Action only aided African Americans and that it was a bill placed on the books solely for African Americans. If it had not been for Affirmative Action and the Civil Rights movement, the majority of immigrants of color would not even be in this country and the majority of women, white and black would be expected to be satified with being homemakers and/or barefoot and pregnant.
Sunnubian there's the COVER PAGE and now PAGE ONE slamming it down full-force, good measured, and running over with truth.

Here! Here! I think we got this little gratitude game a little backwards. No one gave the Black anything, God with only a willing handful alone, brought America to its wicked knees and set the Black free!

In other words, no one gave us anything we took it, and we have the dead bodies to prove it!

It was the whites who were in the wrong then and they are in the wrong now, right along with their little yapping colored helpers. Both still remain an abomination in the eyes of God who was against them and their evil treachery then, and is against their evil treachery now!

Talk about the arrogance of Satan, these white fiends have spewed his gall to the point that they now cry, 'it's wrong, anti-american that I can't be unleashed to spew my demon nature.' And who do you suppose is at their feet to 'yessum' support em' but their little colored helpers. It is an outrage!

At any rate, how right you are when you speak of those 'uppity' foreign coloreds who benefit from Black America's blood, sweat and tears, but arrogantly have the gall to aid the whites in denouncing blacks when they should be on their knees praising black America.

Again, you'd laid that one to rest. So let's send it all. If anybody has the email address where we can ship it, do put it up.
I don't understand the purpose of the letter. Shouldn't it be directed to the Mr., not the Mrs.?? Ward Connelly is a frequent guest on numerous talk shows, i.e. CNN, MSNBC, CBS, etc. He seems to strongly and openly support his views. It would make more sense to attack this issue at the source Wink

Yes, little RR you wouldn't 'understand' the matter at hand. However, since you have given your un-solicited advice tell me, have YOU gone to WARD since YOU know where he's at and tried to stop him from giving white males the same 100% un-restrained power over blacks as they had in segregation?

Or, is it that YOUR job is to sit day after day on this site critiqing what's WRONG with the WOMEN'S EFFORT? Do tell.

little RR again?? I guess your empty head must be full of bull - ish again. My point is to forward the message to the source, what could his wife do?? As for 'me' going to 'him'...I respect his opinion and you too, if you heard him out. SOME of what he says makes SOME sense....are Blks less qualified for medical school, college, law school, etc...i dont think so, they why give them 'lower standards'?? That's the same thing Justice Thomas said at a Blk Lawyer's conference. They both feel that Affirmative action is not the way, they both recognize that a solution is needed, they just disagree with this 'procedure'. Along that line, they should also support the removal of the application question, 'are any family members alumni of this school??' What does that matter to the admission's process. If you disagree with jhim, talk to him. Is the wife suppose to bring this up at the dinner table?? Got any other dumb thoughts?? What about talking to Mrs. Bush to get the troops out of Iraq?? Common sense isn't.

Little RR I'm going to say this to you as mild as I can, I'm old enough to be your mother and though I know you well dissapoint her, I'd ask you to show restraint when conversing with me, well quite frankly, just don't comment on my posts as you are clueless and exhibiting that fact quite well.

Go fight the white male who has his heel on your neck if you are a colored boy. Go fight the colored boys who are working to give white males the same 100% rule they had over blacks in segregation.

You must be 'lonely' and 'bitter' and as I see, ever alert to when I click in laying in wait for a black woman, sort like a black man warrior would be laying in wait for his white enemy except you got it all mixed up in that head of which you profess doesn't understand.

Now as you sit in your momma's house, laying wait to do the dozens on a black woman, instead of out looking for a job or an, apartment of your own, you reflect on the truth and let it set you free.

Now, you've shown me you are a little touched, oh so EMOTIONALLY touched, to the point that you bypass all the subject matters on this board, and probably on the rest just to show black women looking in that you are the live exhibit of all that we are talking about....oh what a bitter pill we must swallow, as we watch you do this wallow in the mud 'rastus' routine and too clueless to know it.

Now cease communicating with me, as quite frankly kid, you bore me.

MY REPLY: Look young man, I'll tell you what since you feel the need to 'JUDGE AND DISRESPECT' a black woman on a black woman's site putting up information for black women then I'll tell you what, DON'T SPEAK TO THIS BLACK WOMAN and you'll show yourself seemingly wise. If you'll do this to me, you'll do it to any black girl or woman. They are learning quite a lesson from your conduct.

As for who needs meds? I see you little fellas once again, got it all backward for on another post I told you to stop inquiring of me, as you didn't get it, and I don't have time to teach it to you. In fact, for someone on MEDS you antagonist sure do stay up in my face whereas I knowing you all should be on MEDS have never, ever, approached any single one of ya. Now, that's how you tell the sane from the insane, their ACTIONS.

For the record, the same way you don't get it, niether would WARD, ere go, letter to his wife, not that she would get it as well, but well, the symbollism is what it is all about and what you've shown me, is too large for ya to comprehend.

Still, now that niether of us will be speaking to each other again, just wanted to let TRUTH show whose who around here.

Prophetess;

I noticed that RR in an earlier post admits that he agree's with "some" of Ward Connelly's philosophies. No doubt he would agree with "some" of Clarence Thomas's perspectives which tend to be damaging to black people in america.

I wonder about the process that has created a black man who accepts the definition of affirmative action as "lower standards"?

Hey Negrospiritual, it wasn't hard to tell. The reason they think the BLACK POWER BILL known as AFFIRMATIVE ACTION is a 'lower standard' is because their white trainer's told them to think that way.

They TOYED with their SIMPLETON, VACANT MINDSET. Twisted the facts, and they never having common sense just naturally will do whatever a white girl smiling at them tells them to do and think.

Of course, if this so-called 'lower standard' wasn't FORCED upon the whites who they revere, then their sorry asses would be playing butler, chaffuer roles again of which I suspect would make them darn happy. Tickled PINK, if you know what i mean.

How can something that was the SOLE INSTRUMENT in FORCING 100% WHITE MALE CONTROLLED AMERICA to GIVE QUALIFIED BLACKS AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET THE JOBS be called LOWER STANDARDS. What it is, is that these 'lowered standard' colored boys being bowed down, and subservient, to white's will and ways, remain as clueless as a 'smiling, happy, house negro.'

This 'lower standard' was wrought via the blood, sweat and tears of black humanity whose blood their very disposition tramples underfoot, while they grin and applaud anything any white tells them.

WE GO IT ALONE, GOD BEING THE BLACK WOMAN'S HUSBAND.

perhaps, but would you want to be the 'known' Affirmative Action student or hire?? Probably not. Blacks can keep up with anyone, if given a fair shot. Also, Affirmative Action includes that 'any family alum' question on college applications, that too is unfair. If you want more Blacks at your college, the simple solution is to pick a public school in the hood [high achievement, of course, and give each applicant from there the Affirmative action points that you would have given them for being minority. You see, whites could go to that school in the inner city or hood, but most don't. Many opt for private or religious schools so that they can avoid public schools. Public colleges should be forced to do this, because they get the same tax money that that public high school got. If you want more minorities, setup programs that 'relate' to them. You can keep that Affirmative action stuff, I'm just as bright as the next guy or girl, and if you tried, you could be too. However, like before, you speak from a point of view of ignorance, so i'll let it be Wink

If you are an african american male, and you admit to supporting policies which are dmaging to black males,like those advocated by a ward connelly, a clarence thomas, or an alan keyes, then you are beyond the pale of ignorance. You are a puffed up moron.

By all means, please cite an example of affirmative action serving as "lower standards"...

how is 'expecting' Blk males to 'compete' at the same level as others, 'damaging' blk males?? If you want more Blacks/minorities, do as I posted. Pick an inner city school and have 'preferred' admissions for 'good grads' from that school. Colleges already 'seek out' Blk men for athletic purposes and 'recruiting'. They even have magazine that focuses on 'prep school' sports. Why not put the same effort into getting 'students'. You see, if you do it that way, you wouldn't 'disrespect' the students tha you are 'seeking'. Maybe you should ask members of the Asian American community, who 'over represent' their population numbers in Law, college, and Medical school. Blacks can work that hard, too...in fact, we have a long history of doing just that.
