who is this "they" that you speak of?
From the Inkwell of: Bartholomew J. Worthington III
"They" are those who disinvested in urban neighborhoods, only to back the school to prison pipeline. "They" are those who control the music, tv and movie "entertainment" that perpetuate the perception of Black men as inferior or criminalized. "They" are those who support cutting funds for programs that provide opportunities while supporting increasing funds for prisons. "They" are those who criminalize legitimate protests about the fascismization of our nation while our entire political process is auctioned off to the highest bidder. "They" are those who won't admit that the knowledge of the Greek and Roman civilizations we base our republic on was learned from ancient Egyptians, and will NEVER admit that those Egyptians were Black.

On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned (and thus ILLEGALLY placed in control of our currency, 100 years ago) Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business.
The original settlers of Nicodemus organized the town using the five pillars of many African American communities: religion, education, home ownership, business, and civic government.
