Dover Delaware, 2012

On October 6, 2012 in Dover Delaware this blogger was confronted with claims of a lynching, an attempted lynching and a cover up that were not immediately credible ... Here is my weblog as I struggle to place in some kind of order all the information coming in since then. Although the topics in this blog have grown beyond the original case, still ongoing and unsolved to the minds of many, the focus is the same. Equal protection under the law.

We Came, We marched....

 On the eighty fourth anniversary of the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I was privileged to join other concerned Americans in a march on Dover Delaware to protest civil rights violations in Delaware and to call for a revival for the message and mission of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

  We met at a parking lot across the highway from Delaware University to gather and brief on the day's activities. The Best Buy manager promptly called the Dover City P.D. on us. They responded to that complaint, unlike the complaint of Henry J. Fordham on 21 September 2012


    Then we marched across the highway to protest outside the gates of Delaware State University. Alton Maddox and several others including myself gave brief speeches. This was a dedicated group of hardcore civil rights activists that didn't mind standing in the cold rain to make a point.

    After breaking for lunch we marched from 105 S. New Street in Dover to legislative hall and gathered on the west steps.

     Again we had an array of speakers take the bullhorn and deliver their message. The governor had scheduled his inauguration on legislative mall but moved it to a middle school ostensibly due to weather. It was raining civil rights activists.

    Pam Africa was giving a passionate oratory when the governor returned to legislative hall and we understand he used the back door rather than hear us and introduce himself. Perhaps poetic?

  Dr. Issa and myself want to thank all of the activists and concerned Americans who put their lives on hold to come to Delaware and celebrate the birth of  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., protest civil rights violations everywhere especially in the First State, and speak out against injustice everywhere.

  Media coverage was scant, and we would like to thank those principled local reporters who covered the event.

  We don't think that Governor Markell and Attorney General Biden are taking us seriously. This time we came with a small group of activist leaders and did not seek national media attention. It was an opportunity for our public servants to reach out and start a dialogue. Silence is deafening.

  We will be happy to do this again with mass participation and national attention. Our salaries ( zero ) remain unaffected. Stay tuned because it will be going down.
