Thursday Open Thread: Black/African Nationalists and Revolutionaries

This week’s open threads have highlighted some interesting Black/African Nationalists and Revolutionaries. 

Bustamante

The Right Excellent Sir William Alexander Clarke Bustamante GBE  (February 1884 – August 1977) was a Jamaican politician and labor leader who became the first prime minister of Jamaica. Bustamante is honoured in Jamaica with the title National Hero of Jamaica in recognition of his achievements.

He was born as William Alexander Clarke to Mary née Wilson, of mixed race, and her husband Robert Constantine Clarke, an Irish Roman Catholic planter, in Hanover, Jamaica. He said that he took the surname Bustamante to honour a Spanish sea captain who befriended him in his youth.

After travelling the world, including working as a policeman in Cuba and as a dietician in a New York City hospital, Bustamante returned to Jamaica in 1932.

He became a leader in activism against colonial rule. He gained recognition by writing frequent letters on the issues to the Daily Gleaner newspaper. In 1937 he was elected as treasurer of the Jamaica Workers’ Union (JWU), which had been founded by labour activist Allan G.S. Coombs. During the 1938 labour rebellion, he quickly became identified as the spokesman for striking workers, who were mostly of African and mixed-race descent. Coombs’ JWU became the Bustamante Industrial Trade Union (BITU) after the revolt, and Bustamante became known as “The Chief”.

In 1940, he was imprisoned on charges of subversive activities. The widespread anti-colonial activism finally resulted in Parliament’s granting universal suffrage in 1944 to Jamaica. Released from prison in 1943, Bustamente founded the Jamaica Labour Party the same year. Previously he had belonged to the People’s National Party (founded in 1938 by his cousin Norman Manley). Bustamante’s party won 22 of 32 seats in the first House of Representatives elected by universal suffrage. He became the unofficial government leader, representing his party as Minister for Communications, until the position of Chief Minister was created in 1953. He held this position until the JLP was defeated in 1955. In 1947 and 1948, he was elected asmayor of Kingston.

Though initially a supporter of the Federation of the West Indies, during the 1950s, Bustamente gradually opposed the union. He agitated for Jamaica to become independent of Great Britain. He said that the JLP would not contest a by-election to the federal parliament. His rival and cousin, PremierNorman Manley, called a referendum on the issue in 1961; Jamaicans voted for the nation’s withdrawal from the Federation.

After Jamaica was granted independence in 1962, Bustamante served as the first Prime Minister until 1967.In 1969, Bustamante was proclaimed a ‘National Hero of Jamaica’, along with Norman Manley, the black liberationist Marcus Garvey and two leaders of the 1865 Morant Bay rebellion, Paul Bogle and George William Gordon.

Bustamante married Gladys Longbridge, who was a Jamaican workers’ and women’s rights activist and the widow of Jamaica’s first Prime Minister, Sir Alexander Bustamante. Bustamante, a prominent member of the Jamaican trade union movement, was affectionately known as “Lady B” by Jamaicans.She has been called the “Mother of the Nation” due to her relationship with many of Jamaica’s founders. Jamaican Prime Minister Bruce Goldinghas called Bustamante “an icon of political struggles” in Jamaica’s march towards independence

Bustamante died in 1977 and was buried in the National Heroes Park in Kingston.

A Jamaican candy, the Bustamante backbone, is named for him. It is a hard, grated coconut and sugar confection “which is said to represent his firmness of character.” Bustamante was considered a “buster”, “a champion of the common man and tough article.”

    Mornin’ POU!

    Welp! Looks like Lis Smith won’t be joining de Blasio’s team:

    EXCLUSIVE: Lis Smith, a key de Blasio spokesperson during the campaign and transition until her relationship with her former client Eliot Spitzer broke and became a tabloid fixture, had her last official day on his team yesterday and won’t follow him into city government, City Hall sources tell Capital. In the latter part of the transition and during the inauguration, Smith was said to be on vacation.

    –Smith is returning to her work as a consultant for the Democratic Governors Association and Maryland governor Martin O’Malley, who remained clients while she was with de Blasio. According to a source close to Smith, she was contracted to work with de Blasio only through the transition.

    Smith will be based in both New York and D.C.

    _______________________________________________________

    Here’s a tip for Lis: If you and Spitzer don’t work out, don’t even think about trying to holla at O’Malley cuz his wife don’t play that. Ask Sade Baderinwa (allegedly).

    • rikyrah

      ooh…Sepia…spilling tea this early in the morning.

    • isonprize
      • Town

        Quick Google search:

        The word on the street is O’Malley & Sade had an affair & produced a baby.

        One day she was getting ready to report the news (?) when this mystery car ran into her and almost killed her. Nobody was ever caught.

        Next thing you know she’s packing up and anchoring the news in New York.

        • TyrenM

          One thing I don’t do…

          I think she’d make a nice First Lady lol.

        • http://pragmaticobotsunite.blogspot.com/ Sepia

          Yep, but I’m not sure about the baby rumor, tho. I wonder if she was in the early stages of pregnancy and lost the baby, because she doesn’t have a child.

          She was hit by that mystery car AFTER she became an anchor in NYC. Word is the “accicdent” and the affair are connected.

          • Town

            I wonder if she was in the early stages of pregnancy and lost the baby, because she doesn’t have a child.

            Purpose of the accident.

            DAAAMN.

          • rikyrah

            I bet Martin STILL sleeps with one eye open.

          • JojoRaze

            Dang, Sep. I remember that Sade Baderinwa accident. I used to watch ABC 7news and Sade was a popular news reader. She was gone for like six months off-the-air after that accident. Whomever hit her put their back into it.

      • http://pragmaticobotsunite.com/ Sepia

        I’m sure Baltimore/MD peeps know about this tea. Word is that when Sade Baderinwa was a reporter in B-more, she was having an affair with O’Malley. Mrs. O’Malley found out about it, and the next thing you know, Sade moved to NYC and is now a anchor on WABC Eyewitness News. Shortly after joining WABC, Sade was hit by a car while on a reporting assignment, and hurt REALLY bad. She was off the air for several months. The car driver was never found. Rumor has it that Mrs. O’Malley sent some goons to run her down.

    • conlakappa

      I thought the affair was a rumor debunked as having been started and pushed by Ehrlich’s campaign. The Wash Post had to do a half-apology about it.

    John Boehner Blames President Obama For Three Years of Republican Incompetence
    By: Rmuse
    Wednesday, January, 1st, 2014, 10:27 am

    Damage control is an action to limit the effects of a catastrophic accident or tactical error, but it can also be a means of covering over gross malfeasance often achieved by shifting the blame for one’s ineptitude to an innocent bystander. For the past year, due to inaction, obstruction, and deliberate acts to thwart economic recovery Republicans and teabaggers distinguished the 113th Congress as completely ineffectual. It has taken a couple of years, but noted scholars, Capitol Hill observers, and regular Americans now understand Republicans are responsible for wasting taxpayer time and money doing nothing but obstruct economic progress and render the government ineffective as their raison d’être. Now that the public knows Speaker John Boehner and Republicans lied to gain control of the House in 2010 after spending three years killing jobs, sending Americans into poverty, and damaging the economy, Boehner is doing damage control and blaming President Obama for House Republican incompetence.

    ………………..

    Among the bills Boehner boasted House Republicans passed to grow the economy and create millions of jobs was superseding the President’s authority and passing legislation approving construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, overhauling Boehner’s failed No Child Left Behind education law, and of course, repealing the Affordable Care Act. In the ad, Boehner says “Here in the people’s House, we’re focused on getting the economy moving again, passing good jobs bills” even though none of the bills Boehner cited would have a positive impact on the economy or create jobs. Boehner and Republicans are desperate to convince people that the “do nothing” label they rightfully earned in 2013 has nothing to do with their phony scandals or obstruction and as is their wont, found what they think is an easy scapegoat that fools no-one but their dyed-in-the-wool supporters and Fox News’ audience. According to Boehner, Republican ineffectiveness, obstruction, and job-killing efforts were entirely the fault of Senate Democrats and President Obama. To punctuate what he thought was a convincing and valid argument, Boehner ends the minute-long infomercial asking “Mr. President, what are you waiting for?”

    Axelrod: Clinton Will ‘Signal To Elite’ That De Blasio Is No Radical
    Tom Kludt – January 2, 2014, 6:51 AM EST125

    The way David Axelrod sees it, former President Bill Clinton’s role in New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s inauguration on Wednesday may have served two purposes.

    After riding a “tale of two cities” message to a resounding victory in last year’s mayoral race, de Blasio’s arrival at City Hall has been met with eager anticipation from progressives in New York and across the country. The reaction from conservatives and budget-obsessed centrists has been less enthusiastic.

    According to Axelrod, Clinton’s leading role at de Blasio’s inauguration could help the new mayor placate the two constituencies whose priorities are often diametrically opposed.

    Axelrod, the former top adviser to President Obama, suggested on Twitter that Clinton’s participation in the inauguration ceremony will provide reassurances to the left ahead of the 2016 presidential race and “signal to elite” that de Blasio’s “agenda is not ‘radical.'”

    President Obama’s Approval Rating Jumps 5 Points as Millions Sign Up for Obamacare
    By: Jason Easley
    Wednesday, January, 1st, 2014, 2:09 pm

    President Obama is beginning 2014 on the upswing as millions are signing up for the ACA, and his approval rating has increased by 5 points according to Gallup.

    The Gallup Obama approval daily tracking poll reveals that the president’s approval rating has jumped five points since the days before Christmas from 39%-44%. Disapproval of the president has fallen from 54%-49%. President Obama’s approval numbers shift wildly based on the tone of the media coverage that he is receiving, but media’s negativity was hiding a convergence of positive things.

    …………………………………………..

    Republicans and the media have consistently failed to understand, and in many cases actively worked to undermine, the fact that President Obama remains basically popular. For the sixth year in a row, the president was named the most admired man in the world. For as much as Republicans try to project their hatred and contempt for this president on to the nation, the rest of the country has never shared their feelings.

    Wealthy Americans Prove Pope Francis’ Point by Threatening Economic Blackmail
    By: Hrafnkell Haraldsson
    Wednesday, January, 1st, 2014, 7:23 am

    It should – and the operative word here is should – come as no surprise that if Pope Francis is conveying Jesus’ message, it should contain scant regard for the concerns of the rich. After all, Jesus himself, the poor Jew from small-town Galilee, had nothing at all good to say about the rich. And, in point of fact, he said that in order to follow him, a rich person must give up everything they own (Mark 10:21; Matt. 19:21; Luke 18:22). This is hardly a message rich people at any time in history have wanted to hear.

    So Home Depot founder Ken Langone, a Catholic, was on shaky theological ground when, on Monday, he complained to CNBC that the Pope is being mean to rich Americans because unlike rich people in other countries, American rich people are benefactors. Langone, who is worth an estimated $2.1 billion, says there is a “vast difference between the pope’s experience in Argentina and how we are in America.” CNBC even helpfully cites the right wing American Enterprise Institute to say that “In places like Argentina, what they call free enterprise is a combination of socialism and crony capitalism.”

    I’m not sure which is worse: CNBC citing the AEI or failing to point out that the AEI is a conservative think tank and therefore disinclined to say anything negative about American capitalism.

    Claim: Obama Christmas gift goes astray
    By TAL KOPAN | 1/2/14 8:52 AM EST Updated: 1/2/14 9:22 AM EST

    A woman from the Chicago suburbs says she got an unexpected surprise for Christmas: A present that appears to be from the Obama family to Sasha and Malia’s godmother.

    Alane Church told NBC’s “Today” show on Thursday that her family received a package from their uncle a week late and that it was in total disarray, having apparently been opened before it arrived.

    “Parts of the old box were in this toilet paper box that the post office repackaged,” she said. “In the bottom of the box was this extra gift. And we were reading the tag, trying to figure out, you know, where this came from, and it was opened. So we then discovered this was a very personal gift to Mama Kaye.”

    “Mama Kaye” is the nickname of Kaye Wilson, the godmother of Sasha and Malia Obama.

    A picture of the gift showed a tag addressed to “Mama Kaye and Papa Wellington,” from “Barack, Michelle and the girls.”

    – —Americans Can Now Start Using Their New Obamacare Coverage – –

    – —On Wednesday, nearly four years after President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act, the major provisions of the health law that serve to expand coverage to millions of Americans officially took effect. Insurers are no longer allowed to discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions, or charge sick Americans higher prices than their healthier counterparts. And now, the Americans who have enrolled in new plans under Obamacare — either by picking a private plan on the state-level marketplaces, or by qualifying for Medicaid in the states that agreed to expand the program — may start using that coverage.
    – —SNIP — –

    And some of people who woke up to new health insurance options on Wednesday aren’t wasting any time using their new plans.

    Kathy Hornbach, a 57-year-old breast cancer survivor from Arizona, scheduled a doctor’s appointment for Thursday because she was eager to use her coverage. Hornbach was uninsured until two years ago, when she purchased a plan with monthly premiums of nearly $300, and her new Obamacare plan is cheaper. “It’s a better policy — lower out-of-pocket, more choice of doctors,” she told the New York Times. “This is a very happy day.”

    As Promised, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Files For Re-Election
    by MARK MEMMOTT
    January 02, 201410:55 AM

    Saying he’s been “the best mayor this city has ever had,” Toronto’s Rob Ford on Thursday filed the paperwork to seek re-election in October.

    The mayor’s follow-through on a promise to run again comes two months after he famously admitted that “yes, I have smoked crack cocaine … probably in one of my drunken stupors.”

    It also comes after his amazingly blue denial that he’d made some very crude comments to a woman he knows.

    Then there’s the video of him dropping F-bombs as he threatens to kill someone. And the video police have that reportedly shows him smoking the crack he’s admitted to smoking.

    We also shouldn’t forget to mention that the City Council has stripped him of most of his duties.

    Still, as the CBC reports, the never-shy Ford said Thursday that:

    — “I’ve got the strongest track record, I’ve been the best mayor this city has ever had.”

    — His problems are “all personal” and voters will “speak for themselves” about whether he should or should not remain in office.

      1. NONE of this ‘ whistleblower’ shyt. It would have been labeled TREASON from DAY ONE.
      2. They woulda gotten all into the fake educational credentials.
      3. They would have trotted out every WHITE MAN ever turned down for a job with Booz Allen, complaining how this UNQUALIFIED BLACK MAN got a job over them.
      4. If Snowden’s Black Daddy got on tv talking the bullshyt that White Snowden’s father did…they would have gotten his ass fired from his job too.

      do I need to go on?

      • Miranda

        Don’t forget….Glenn Greenwald would be not one iota in his corner, going to bat everyday for him. Hell no…all these “libertarians” would be right there blasting his ass and claiming he’s not one of them!

        • rikyrah

          I dunno Miranda…

          Gigi pimped out his Brazillian boo and put him in the situation to be picked up by the British authorities…

          you don’t think he’d pimp and use and Black Snowden and then after he’d outlived his usefulness, throw him overboard?

          Having a Black man to use to beat up on the Black President.

          I think Gigi would love that chance.

          Until the SOUL PATROL got into the act.

          1. Black Snowden is today’s MLK
          2. President Obama is the Black J Edgar Hoover
          3. This shows how President Obama is a sellout because he won’t pardon today’s MLK
          4. Black Snowden is the leader of the ‘ New’ Civil Rights Movement.
          5. You do know that Black people have had complete privacy until this Black Snowden revealed how President Obama took away Black folks’ privacy.

          once they have the cover of the Soul Patrol, the Emos would go to town

      Damn, I wish I would have seen this before going off above. It really speaks volumes—this is white privilege and this is ODS people needing to see Snowden get away with a gross violation of the law. Same reason a bunch of these people needed to see Zimmerman “acquitted” after a clear lynching. Sick freaks.

    ——————————-
    Both the New York Times and U.K. paper the Guardian published editorials on New Year’s Day calling for clemency for NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. The publications said that Snowden’s revelations may have revealed some state secrets as part of his mission to expose the National Security Agency’s massive spying apparatus, but that the revelations serve the greater need of informing the public that their privacy is being violated.

    http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/01/02/new-york-times-and-guardian-editorials-say-edward-snowden-deserves-clemency/

    • gn

      Here’s what I don’t understand—who the f- elected Snowden/GG and the ODS nutjobs in the beltway press such that they feel entitled to determine what should and shouldn’t stay secret about covert programs? None of these people is a special believer in transparency as they run their own intel theft and publishing operations as if they’re in a spy movie. Were Snowden black he’s be UNDER the jail. This whole incident is bs and it’s a reassertion of the belief that random self-appointed libertarian freaks rather than duly elected President Obama should be running the country. He needs to defend himself in court in accordance with this country’s laws, period. I can’t think of a better example of certain people feeling entitled to break laws and do whatever with no consequences.

    White House ‘Confident’ On Obamacare Birth Control Mandate JANUARY 2, 2014, 11:47 AM EST159

    The White House is standing by the Affordable Care Act’s birth control mandate after the Supreme Court blocked the requirement that a religiously affiliated organization provide contraception coverage in its health insurance plan.

    “We defer to the Department of Justice on litigation matters, but remain confident that our final rules strike the balance of providing women with free contraceptive coverage while preventing non-profit religious employers with religious objections to contraceptive coverage from having to contract, arrange, pay, or refer for such coverage,” a White House official told Politico on Wednesday.

    Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor issued an order late Tuesday that temporarily blocked implementation of the contraception coverage requirement for a Denver-based organization of Catholic nuns, hours before the provision was to go into effect on New Year’s Day.

      Not that I would put it past him, but to find for Hobby Lobby, Justice Scalia would have to reverse himself pretty sharply from the majority opinion he authored in Employment Division v. Smith (1990), which established the existing precedent:

      Neutral laws of general applicability do not violate the Free Exercise clause of the First Amendment.

      The issue in that case was the sacramental use of Peyote by Native American religions vs. state laws banning its use.

    — -Lovie Smith Reaches Deal to Coach Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    —-Former Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith is set to take on the challenge of rebuilding the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Two people familiar with Smith’s plans said Wednesday night that the coach has reached an agreement to fill the opening created by the firing of Greg Schiano following a 4-12 finish.

    The people spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of
    anonymity because an official announcement hasn’t been made. One of the people also said that former Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier will be the Bucs’ defensive coordinator.

    The 55-year-old Smith will replace Schiano, fired Monday after going
    11-21 in two seasons in Tampa Bay. Frazier also was fired Monday.

    Smith was 81-63 in nine seasons with Chicago, leading the 2006 team to the Super Bowl — where the Bears lost Indianapolis. He was fired a year ago after the Bears finished 10-6 and missed the playoffs for the fifth time in six seasons.

    Smith was Tampa Bay’s linebackers coach under Tony Dungy from
    1996-2000, then spent three seasons as the St. Louis Rams’ defensive coordinator on Mike Martz’s staff.

    An Unexpected Gift from a Controversial Tweet

    By Raymund Flandez

    Aid for Africa, a coalition of small American charities, didn’t set out to reap financial benefit from a racist comment that attracted global attention just before the Christmas holiday.

    But it has ended up gaining lots of donations nonetheless, in part because of quick thinking by one of its supporters after an unusual chain of events.

    The action started a few days before the holiday, when Justine Sacco, a prominent public-relations executive, was boarding a flight from London to Cape Town, South Africa. She wrote a tweet that stunned many readers: “Going to Africa. Hope I don’t get AIDS. Just kidding. I’m white!”

    While Ms. Sacco was flying, Twitter and other social networks were erupting with scorn for her comments, and her employer, IAC—the Internet media company owned by the entertainment executive and philanthropist Barry Diller—fired her after it learned about the tweet.

    As those events were unfolding, Aid for Africa didn’t know that someone created the website justinesacco.com and redirected all visitors to AidforAfrica.org, which accepts donations and channels them to charities that work on a range of issues in Africa, including education, health care, and wildlife conservation.

    The charity doesn’t know who set up the site, and Internet registration records don’t show who it was either.

    Barbara Alison Rose, Aid for Africa’s executive director, says that soon after the controversial tweet was posted, she noticed more donations coming to her organization than usual. Usually the group gets three or four donations a day; that many were coming in hourly, she says, in the weekend before Christmas.

    More are coming in a week later, although Ms. Rose declined to disclose how much has been raised.

    She says once the charity realized what was happening, it decided it might as well promote the idea of giving through the Sacco site and started sending its owntweets, including one that said, “Keep up the momentum! Donate at http://justinesacco.com to help the people of Sub Saharan Africa help themselves.”

    The fundraising appeal got so much attention it prompted Donald Trump to jump into the fray and show his support for Aid for Africa. He tweeted, using the popular hashtag that resulted from the kerfuffle: “#HasJustineLandedYet—Justine, what the hell are you doing, are you crazy? Not nice or fair! I will support @AidforAfrica. Justine is FIRED!”

    Ms. Rose says as far as she knows, the charity has yet to receive a check from Mr. Trump. “We haven’t seen anything yet,” she said.

    But what Ms. Rose wants to find out most is the identity of the online guru who moved so quickly to capitalize on the attention to Ms. Sacco.

    “We would love to know who created the page,” Ms. Rose says. “I think it’s fascinating. Clearly, it was someone who loves our work.”

    We didn’t get far into 2014 before the year’s first major snowstorm took aim on parts of the Midwest and Northeast. Based on our criteria for naming winter storms, The Weather Channel named this system Winter Storm Hercules.

    The back edge of the snow will pull eastward Thursday through the Ohio Valley, including a swath from eastern Missouri through downstate Illinois, Indiana, southern Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and northern Tennessee.

    Video of the CNN segment:

    — – – -CNN claimed that there has been a firestorm of people calling for Melissa Harris-Perry to be fired, but the only evidence they offered wasone tweet. The entire segment was a thinly disguised hit job on MSNBC that was intended to pander to the pseudo-Fox News audience that the former cable giant is once again desperately courting.

    – – – -CNN’s story was a deplorable piece of television that was intended to pander to the right, and prop up a scandal that is already dead. CNN’s hourlong interview with Glenn Beck last month was the first sign that Jeff Zucker was getting desperate, and ready to swing the network back to being Fox News junior.

      They need to put that energy into improving their own ratings instead of trying to get MHP fired.
