NAACP Marches on Oklahoma State Capital. Esprit de corps! Watch out Gov Fallin.

While NAACP Nationals & many other Americans on 8-24-2013 were participating in the march on Washington DC, the Oklahoma NAACP was on the front line leading marchers to the Oklahoma state capital building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to not only commemorate Martin Luther King’s 50th anniversary of the “I have a Dream” Speech, but to also bring public awareness to racial disparity in treatment in the criminal justice system, dangers of stand your ground law, low wages, need for obamacares.

NAACP members marched behind their NAACP state president who seemed to persevered with each step on a walking cane.  The members led jodie-chant “United We Stand” while carrying the NAACP unit colors behind him.   Esprit de corps is always a good thing to have before entering battle.

Oklahoma identified as a “Right to Starve” State

1 of the organizers for Coalition for Medicaid Expansion rally – Ali Canada summed up Oklahoma as a Right to Starve state. There were discussions at a Motorcade for Medicaid rally in McAlester about republicans forced out union jobs with the promise that NON-union jobs would create more jobs in Oklahoma.

The phrase “Right to Work” is deceptively worded. At a glance, that phrase implies that it gives people the right to work. But in reality, the phrase may had been worded this way so as to trick voters. Right to Work is an ANTI union movement for lower paying jobs like what you see at McDonald’s & Burger King. In essence POVERTY WAGES. As it turned out the Anti-union law (deceptively worded as Right to Work) did not produce jobs as the republicans had promised.

Ali Canada who is also 1 of the directors of the Coalition of Black Trade Unionist in Tulsa said that the Southeastern Oklahoma Labor Council is working on getting rid of the ANTI-union law, by putting it before the voters n the state ballot for 2016.

The event was videoed at Chadick Park in McAlester, OK on July 27, 2013 and coordinated by Coalition for Medicaid Expansion. The group organized a Motorcade for Medicaid which toured 12 Oklahoma cities/towns in a single day. McAlester, Oklahoma was its last stop.

On ELECTION DAY, while Blacks scramble to polls voting for a Black man, Oklahoma EXECUTES one !

NAACP Oklahoma City president - Garland Pruitt questions the motives of Oklahoma GOP governor for executing mentally ill Black inmate on Election day as Oklahoma GOP lawmakers have showed open racial hostility  toward the Nations first black president who was being elected on the same day.  11/09/2012 at NAACP training session at NAACP 80th State conference in Oklahoma City, OK.

NAACP Oklahoma City president – Garland Pruitt questions the motives of Oklahoma GOP governor for executing mentally ill Black inmate on Election day as Oklahoma GOP lawmakers have showed open racial hostility toward the Nations first black president who was being elected on the same day; and as blacks’ voting rights were being suppressed nationwide. Recorded on 11/09/2012 at NAACP training session at NAACP 80th State conference in Oklahoma City, OK.

Southern Strategy is alive & well in Oklahoma but in a bizarre form. 

  • Nationwide voter suppression aimed at black & other minority communities to prevent the nation’s first black president
    from winning re-election;
  • Reports of Oklahoma purging democrat voters from the voter rolls ;
  • White Oklahoma republican legislators pushed for affirmative action to be abolished in the state that is
    known for its hatred for a black US President;
  • Oklahoma Republicans had this affirmative action question to be placed on the ballot to be voted on in the
    presidential election knowing that a black president’s name would also be named on the same ballot;
  • Racist vitriol spewed by Oklahoma GOP politicians which fueled hate rhetoric to their constituents at conventions &
    political gatherings against a black president;


Then these white republicans in Oklahoma with venomous hatred for this black man in the White House  decided to show the depth of it by executing another black man on


Yes, they did this!  While black folks in Oklahoma were scrambling to get to the voting polls on ELECTION DAY to vote for a black man to remain as president, the state of Oklahoma was executing another black on the same day. In my opinion this was a twisted message the white republicans of Oklahoma was sending to the black people in the state.

When they say racism is skin deep disease to the bone, they aint lying, cause these white republican politicians in Oklahoma have got it bad. Real bad.  How low can they go?

By the way, the blood RED state of Oklahoma at 6:05 pm on November 6, 2012 – ELECTION DAY, executed a mentally ill black man named Garry Allen. At that same time – 6:05 pm, blacks folks were still standing in long lines at voting polls in Carter County & other Oklahoma counties trying desperately to vote for another black man to be re-elected President of the United States & that man’s name is Barack Obama.  It was reported that the last words of inmate Garry Allen at the ELECTION DAY EXECUTION was his prediction of an Obama win to the presidency.

The following video was recorded at the Oklahoma Death Penalty Discussion/Session held at the NAACP Oklahoma state convention in Oklahoma City on 11/10/2012.

Walmart employee for GOP Senate says folks w/tattoos & mohawks are UNEMPLOYABLE – Oklahoma

The GOP – Barney Taylor, a Walmart employee seeking election to State senate maintains that folks going to Walmart w/tattoos & mohawks are not employable

At political forum – the question to Oklahoma GOP state senate candidate (also Walmart employee) Barney Taylor: “Do you think its possible to be pro-life & deprive people of healthcare”.   Taylor responded that folks (coming in Muskogee Walmart where he works) covered in tattoos & green spiked mohawks,  are unemployable; and regarding their need for healthcare, he added “Why should we have to pay for you”.    This was videoed at the Armory center in Tahlequah, Oklahoma on October 9, 2012 at a candidate political forum sponsored by Tahlequah chamber of commerce. After the political forum in Tahlequah Oklahoma I asked Barney Taylor about his remarks at this forum about folks in Walmart w/tattoos & mohawks not being employable.   The context in which it was said led me to believe that Walmart did not hire job applicants w/tattoos & mohawk hairdos  or that at least it was his firm view of such people.   So I asked for more details.  He still maintained that such individuals are unemployable.  This interview was videoed at the Armory center in Tahlequah, Oklahoma on October 9, 2012 after a political forum sponsored by Tahlequah chamber of commerce. Barney Taylor is running for Oklahoma state senate district 9, which covers Muskogee & Wagoner county.   The election is November 2012. His opponent, Earl Garrison, a democrat is an incumbent. Garrison was not present at this forum. It was announced that Garrison could not be present due to prior engagement to attend a hall of fame induction of his friend.

Correlation Between “NON-Right-to-Work” Law & 2-Party-Consent Law

I’ve noticed a correlation between Forced Unionized States, Blue States and Two-Party-Consent-States.

1.  GROUP #1 –  Forced Unionized States = Blue States:

Currently, there are 28 “Non-Right-to-Work-States” (Forced Unionized), and all of them are Blue (democrats).   The question of WHY is rhetorical.  Apparently, these Forced Unionized States (particularly in public sector) are forcibly being used as collection agencies to garnish union dues from government workers.  And these garnishments are reportedly being used by the unions to finance democrat candidates.

2.  Group #2 – Two Party Consent States:

According to AAPS listing, there are 12 “Two-Party-Consent-States”. A “2-Party-Consent-State” requires that all parties must consent to conversations being recorded. Coincidentally ALL  12 “Two-Party-Consent-States” are also blue.  All “2-Party-Consent-States” except for 2 (Florida & Nevada) are forced unionized.  Yep, Florida and Nevada are the odd balls in this group.   I think the Unions that are set up in 2-party-consent states has something to do with this self-serving law.  Lets say, the government union in NY is trying to shake down the city for more money; and tells the worker to not plow snow in front of folks houses.   Obviously, the union boss will NOT consent to being recorded.   So what proof would the worker have that the unlawful order ever occurred.


Florida & Nevada, which are right-to-work states, may turn red (albeit they both are under the 2-party-consent rule).  Florida, unlike Nevada would probably be the 1st to change to a 1-party-consent rule.   Reason being is that Florida is located too close to other red 1-party-consent states that have right-to-work laws.  Also, it may be a challenge for Nevada to dump the 2-party-consent rules due to brothels & gambling activities.   Yep,  Nevada would be in a bind on this one considering that its a right-to-work state.

If the forced unionized states would get rid of the 2-party-consent rule, it may give workers confidence to blow the whistle (with proof) on union bosses.  Also, to get rid of 2-party-consent rule would be closer step to getting “right-to-work” law.
