Oklahomans Fired up Ready to Go marching on Wash DC event at Okla State Capital

Oklahomans fired up & ready to go marching on Wash DC at Oklahoma State Capital on 8-24-2013 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,  stand your ground law, low wages and their advocacy for obamacare.

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.

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; 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;

AND

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

ELECTION DAY!

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.
