Again JFK is quoted as using the term goddamn civil rights mess


Direct quote by JFK to Harris Wofford: "Now, in five minutes tick off the ten things a President ought to do to clean up this goddamn civil rights mess."

The title provides the backdrop for this post which is the exact historical phrase used by JFK who initially coined the events that took place in the deep, dirty South. He also called what took place a “spectacle” and refused to commit or to protect the peaceful, sign-carrying, young, Black Protestors or prevent the gun-carrying, Birmingham Police from unleashing their weapons: ravenous dogs and the Birmingham Fire Department from spraying their weapon: water hoses ---on May 5, 1963.

https://blackhistorycollection.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/dsc08727.jpg

President Kennedy commented that Birmingham should solve its own problem. Thus ignoring the advice of vice-President, Lyndon B. Johnson, who'd suggested he look white Southerners right “…in the eye and tell them that integration was a ‘moral’ issue and ‘Christian’ issue…” Eye am just telling the fact, it's not as if Eye think anymore of Lyndon B. Johnson because Eye know about his racist comments against black people, too.

Why black people didn’t take this as a sign of gross neglect and resistance on the part of the system, remain segregated and then go back indoors and work out their own plan amongst themselves to build a better, stronger inner nation escapes me totally.

(Andrew Young said that an order had just been given for the children to
return back to the church right before the Birmingham police allowed its
dogs to attack and the Birmingham Fire Department to unleashed its
water hoses on these young, innocent, unarmed protestors.)

As Eye re-examine the playing field there was Martin (Michael) Luther King, Jr. who spearheaded “The Civil Rights Movement” –the moral aspect of the matter was never given a deep thought; and then there was Malcolm X who viewed the situation as a “Human Rights” issue –which touched upon the moral aspect. He and his ideals, of course, were squashed before Martin (Michael) Luther King, Jr. and --in addition-- even before he could present his case to the United Nations.

http://www.infoimagination.org/ps/martin/images/m_m_together.jpg
(Both men are pictured here in Washington, DC for the first and last time.
They were there to observe the Senate hearings on the “Civil Rights Legislation”. Understand now this doesn't mean that the two never communicated again
because they did. In fact, Malcolm X lamented about the things he had said
about MLK and was ready to reconcile and compromise with MLK and
bring both of their agendas to a common ground --but as well know or
don't know that never happened.)

President Kennedy did not send 3,000 troops into Birmingham, Alabama until after the White Segregationist had begun their bombing tactics on black people (eg. churches, homes). It was then that he lamented “…the Negroes will be uncontrollable...” WTF#

And then President Kennedy must have had an extreme epiphany because the next thing he did was come on live television and say:

“…This government will do whatever must be done to
preserve order, to protect the lives of its citizens, and
to uphold the law of the land…”​

However, he never specified as to the exact details of the so-called ‘Law Of The Land’ and nobody questioned him either. And then just as quickly as he appeared he disappeared back into his main agenda: the relationship between the Soviet Union and the US.

To this very day black people still love and grieve his death —though they fail to re-examine his fatal flaws as he, too, did very little too late. His own real concern ---at the time-- had been to block black folks tempers from reacting to their own brutal treatment simply because WE ?what? wanted equality. Yet WE are still denizens --to this day-- so where could WE have gotten the idea that citizenship and fair treatment has on the table even back then. Beats me....

Now doesn’t that sound familiar?

Now let’s jump from May 5, 1963 to June 11, 1963 where the Alabama Governor George “Segregation Forever” Wallace has now begun a smear campaign to keep black students out of the state university in Birmingham. After delivering a speech at the American University in Washington DC --that same day-- President Kennedy decides to engage Governor Wallace and goes on national television --this time singing:

“…We are confronted primarily with a moral issue.
It is as old as the Scriptures and it is as clear as the
American Constitution. The heart of the question is
whether all Americans are to be afforded equal rights
and equal opportunities…”​

And then finally President Kennedy decides to take a stand by saying:

“…Next week I shall ask the Congress of the United
States to act, to make a commitment it has not fully
made in this century to the proposition that race has
no place in American life or law…”

http://i.ytimg.com/vi/KVdZBtlSirI/hqdefault.jpg

The weak “Civil Rights Legislation” was not enacted until July 2, 1964 under the Lyndon B. Johnson administration with President Kennedy, of course, having been assassinated almost 8 months prior to the event.

When Eye view “American Experience: JFK | Season 1: Ep. 4 (21:28) –Eye can visibly see that he is winging the last third part of this speech (eg. as suggested by the narrator) with gestures and non-scripted words as he looks right into the camera and finishes his remarks with:

“…We have a right to expect that the Negro community
will be responsible, will uphold the law. But they have a
right to expect the law will be fair, that the Constitution
will be colorblind, as Justice Harlan said at the turn of
the century. This is what we’re talking about, and this is
a matter which concerns this country and what it stands
for and in meeting it, I ask the support of all of our citizens.
Thank You Very Much…”
​
Did I miss something or did President Kennedy just spew out a boat load of empty-laced, metaphoric rhetoric?

And then President Kennedy flies off to Berlin and delivers his famous “Ich bin ein Berliner” Speech. Black people were left hoodwinked, bamboozled and bewildered ---again --and the rest as they say, is history.

"...Originally made famous by her stellar performance at the 2014 Little League World Series, Mo’ne is adding accomplishments to her resumé at a remarkable pace: a shoe line, a memoir, several athletic awards, and most recently, an offer from traveling exhibition basketball team, the Harlem Globetrotters.

Wait — isn’t her sport baseball?..."
