Tawana Brawley Defeats the “Lies” in a Virginia Court ©

Listen Seeker, I come in peace,

“I cannot accept the definition of collective good as articulated by a privileged minority in society, especially when that minority is in power.” — Wole Soyinka

In November 1987 Tawana Brawley was raped by several White men, one of which in February 2013 got the Virginia courts to garnish three-hundred dollars from her wages every two weeks.  In July 2013, the United African Movement secured a case dismissal, proving again that Tawana Brawley told the truth and African Power is in Organization.  Though several news outlets and pundits say otherwise, the proof is here.  We have so much to do.  So do.  Every African should be a part of an Organization.  The more Members the more Power.

Tawana Brawley Defeats the “Lies” in a Virginia Court ©
By Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

Nearly one hundred persons travelled to Surry, Virginia on July 23, 2013 to Support Tawana Brawley who refused to enter the courthouse because of a Confederate statue on its grounds which featured a Confederate flag and a Confederate soldier as a “Fallen Hero”.

The Surry Circuit Court had summoned Tawana Brawley to, in effect, show cause why she should not be an “indentured servant” of Steven Pagones who, together with other white men, had raped her in November 1987. This Virginia court had already started to garnish Three Hundred Dollars every two weeks of her wages starting on February 8, 2013. This was done without due process of law.

Today, it is very important for us to know our history. Enslaved Africans knew more history than we know today. In 1827, for example, they still told stories of Africa. They also had a fighting and incessant spirit. See, for example, Nat Turner, Denmark Vesey and Gabrielle Prosser.

If the story of Tawana Brawley had happened in 1827, it would have not only been a “hit” on the Underground Railroad but also front page news on the Freedom’s Journal, the first Black newspaper in North America. This would have “stirred” the Black masses.

After Congress passed the Fugitive Slave Law of 1850, enslaved Africans unlawfully seized on “free soil” by bounty hunters and, if not stopped, taken back to their slaveholders. This is similar to the Full Faith and Credit Clause which Pagones employed to illegally garnish her wages in Virginia from a bogus judgment in New York.

If this had happened in Massachusetts in 1851, Robert Morris, Sr., the first “civil rights” lawyer in the United States, had agreed to represent “Shadrack” (Frederick Wilkens) pro bono in 1851. Shadrack was a fugitive from Norfolk, Virginia and “owned” by John DeBree.

Morris plotted to free “Shadrack” from a federal courthouse in Boston. While Morris was representing him, hundreds of Blacks “bum rushed” the courthouse and freed “Shadrack”. He ran until he crossed the Canadian border. Canada was beyond the “long arm” of the Fugitive Slave Law of 1850.

In those days, means of communications for both “free” Blacks and enslaved Africans were “revolutionary”. Today, the airwaves and print journalism are in the hands of white supremacists. Black journalism is a “front” for white supremacy. It is a “commercial” rather than a “revolutionary” enterprise today.

For example Jet magazine was too eager to print an article entitled “TAWANA BRAWLEY’S LIE”. This article arose after February 8, 2013 and out of the garnishment proceeding in Surry County, Virginia. It appeared on the front cover of Jet magazine.

Rev. Al Sharpton, who had masqueraded as a Brawley advisor in 1988, was instead, seeking publicity for himself to acquire a national reputation. Locally, the “Village Voice” had dubbed him, on several occasions in December and for several years, as the “Buffoon of the Year”. In New York City in 1988, Sharpton enjoyed the reputation of being a “government snitch”. No one viewed him as a “leader” in 1988.

Now, it is time for Jet magazine to make some corrections. It should start with Jet reporting on the July 23, 2013 decision in Virginia. The result can be found at:

(b) Go to (Surry County) to (Civil Court); Name: ( Pagones) Case No. CL131009; Click on Case # for Complete Printout

This result should also be published throughout the Black press. It would have been published in the Black Press one hundred fifty years ago.

Jet has its corporate headquarters in Chicago, ILL. It also has a business office in New York City. The mailing address and telephone number locally is as follows:

Rockefeller Center
1270 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10020

Sharpton is not only a radio host on the “Urban View” on Sirrius Satellite Radio but he is also a host on MSNBC-TV. He is the only person who can be viewed or heard on television or radio seven days a week. This is unprecedented and its shows the threat of Blacks in the United States.

The Madison Avenue Initiative, a conglomerate of white advertisers, made this possible. He heads it. Sharpton also heads National Action Network, which is a “front” for the Madison Avenue Initiative. Similarly, Rev. Jesse L. Jackson heads the Wall Street Initiative. Sharpton touts Jackson as his mentor.

Tawana Brawley is the symbol of the opposition to “legitimate rape” which still threatens every female of African ancestry. United African Movement is the only organization that has incessantly fought legitimate rape in this country. This has been a protracted struggle dating back to November 1987.

Every female of African ancestry should owe a debt of appreciation to not only Tawana Brawley and her family but also to the United African Movement on the weekend of the birthday of Marcus Garvey. Every Black person should be familiar with his philosophy and his achievements.

This weekend is important for all Blacks in New York City. For too long, Black voters in New York City have been taken for granted. The Democratic Party and the Republican Party have symbiotic relationships with “minor” political parties. So far, this has been beyond the ken of Black voters. Blacks are loyal to a fault to the Democratic Party. This is “real love” for slaveholders.

As our revered ancestors would have it on this weekend, Blacks can revolutionize Black politics. We have suffered too long from “politricks”. The presence of the Freedom Party on the November 5 ballot will at least keep the feet of all politicians to the fire. Blacks in New York City, for the first time, can fulfill the hopes and aspirations of our revered ancestors.

This can happen if only 22,500 Black voters in New York City sign a Freedom Party independent nominating petition by this weekend of August 17–18. You can still vote for anyone of the five mayoral candidates on the Democratic line on November 5, 2013. Of course, I will be voting for Michael Greys, mayoral candidate of the Freedom Party. In any event, time is of the essence.

  1. The mainstream media loudly proclaimed the garnishment of Tawana Brawley’s wages. Of course, they failed to mention this was an illegal garnishment.

    Unbeknownst to them, there are Blacks who sought out the truth, by reading and listening to both sides of the story and realized she was telling the truth and was the victim of White Supremacy. (No Black has any rights a White man is bound to respect; Dred Scott)

    The brilliant attorney, Alton Maddox, has stood by her side and defended her in the racist Surry Virginia court, that illegally allowed her wages to be garnished. He prevailed, although against a barrage of disrespect. See: excerpt from America: Love it or Leave it By Alton H. Maddox, Jr. below:

    “We next assembled a bus and car caravan for a trip to Norfolk, VA to serve legal papers on Glasser and Glasser, the attorneys for Steven Pagones. This law firm is in a plush office building and its location required our walking past a nearby Confederate statue. This statue explains Pagones.

    His lawyer said that they would not dignify us by accepting any legal papers. We were also told to call first to see if we could get in. Stated differently, Negroes should learn to stay in their place. Virginia law allows white lawyers to go into other law offices to serve legal papers without notice. Of course, Dred Scott is still in place.”

    Jet magazine for all practical purposes is owned by JP Morgan. The impotence of the Blacks that work for Jet shows in the magazines failure to report the activities of Alton Maddox and the United African Movement in challenging the garnishment and winning.

    Blacks must diligently research all sides of stories that affect them and not rely on mainstream media or “White owned Black media”. Failure to understand “reality” will result in the demise of the Black race, which is already underway, notwithstanding the numerous high profile Blacks paraded in the movies, television and radio.

      Alton H. Maddox, Jr. really did our Race an honor. Were he absent, who knows what would have happened? Maybe Tawana Brawley would have simply been raped, harassed by the media, and remembered forever as a victim, telling other African women that Europeans can rape them, blame them, and get away with it. Thanks to Maddox it’s clear that with effective representation, the long fight will win the night: Case Dismissed!

      I’m glad that Tawana Brawley had her day in court and won–again. But it goes to show how despite her earlier winnings, the battle is protracted and Europeans are always ready to forget former conquests. We see, in fact, that realistically Africa did not fall over night. We see, in fact, realistically, that European aggression and consistency won them our continent. Maybe there’s another battle in the future. Let’s hope not. And maybe they are waiting for our amnesia and our misunderstanding all over again. Let’s hope not. What we should hope for is, our Organization widely spreads the Reality that the European is at war with the African and whenever they seem decent it’s a scam to get us to lower our guard and forget the indecency.

      Let us be more vigilant than our enemies! More vigilant than NY Times, Daily News, MSNBC, CNN, DOE, etc. Let us be more vigilant than Europeans! Ase!

      1. I had no idea that Miss Bradley won her case. I remember all of Black media were calling her a liar. I was so angry on how they could turn on a Black woman.

      2. Peace,

        She won the case and neither has anyone has apologized nor has it been widely publicized. The Queen was right all along. Yet despite this, how long will we wait until we recognize that our enemies manipulated us into betraying our strong unfortunate Sister and demand real justice? Several White men raped Tawana Brawley. She won her case. So why are those men still out and about?
