Paul DeMain, has announced his candidacy for the Wisconsin Senate and will predictably be assailed and out monied by those of vested interest.
To be expected as that is the reality of politics in this country – if you aren’t
properly vetted by corporate interests you will be a target.
Doesn’t matter what nation you are from or what state you reside in all of us of the nations should support his candidacy in any way we can.
Electing one our own to any seat in government whether local, state, or national is an incremental step in the direction of the equity and equality we all desire and have been lacking for generations.
A step toward a cleaner environment and hopefully the beginning of a new dialogue.
We as a people have had notable difficulties when it comes to an across the board unity and we have paid a price for that – if not now, when?
Paul DeMain and NFIC have been in the forefront for years leading the quest for truth and justice as related to the crimes and murders committed by AIM, and no doubt with some degree of personal risk involved as well, and yet have remained undeterred.
There is only so much an individual or group of like thinkers are capable of doing-it is numbers and access that matters, the failure of the black leadership, people like AL Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, the Congressional Black Caucus, and the black community itself to lend their support to seeking justice for Perry Ray Robinson Jr., or at the very least the repatriation of his remains to his family, is a stain on the civil rights movement that needs to be addressed.
It is an insult to individuals like Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr .-a perpetuation of the very slavery that once held people in physical bondage, for Ray’s family, and his children are enslaved and held in the bondage of a lack of closure, of being able to properly lay Ray to rest and move on.
Every person who fails to raise their voice, to lend their support, facilitates this, and themselves become unworthy of support. It may well be that without the support of other ethnic groups the civil rights movement would not have accomplished what it has-it is these other ethnic groups that are attempting to focus attention on Ray-a sad and bewildering commentary that they find they must do so alone.
Well done Paul, NFIC, and staffers.
