The Courts had been denounced by the African Americans just like America. With so-called African Americans overloading the Dockets so much the Probate Courts or the United States Government had decided to contract out these services to a private company. So Name Change Offices had been established throughout the United States of America.
For support as they descended on the poor unsuspecting workers at the Name Change Office they enlisted several Cultural Nationalists. Ake Anderson, Menusa Sam and the big head of the Cultural Nationalists, theoretician M. K. Quranga. For extra added support they twisted the arms and legs of several members of the Black elite the Black bourgeoisie who represented various Civil Rights Organizations, Churches and other moneymaking endeavors.
Thus Rev. Dr. Lonnie FeelGood, Bishop Hope InGold and Mr. Clyde Gilmo joined them. However, all of the elite African Americans all shouted in unison…. “We are coming to support you but we are not going to change our names.
We also do not plan to dress like Africans or talk in any of those African dialects that we really are not able to speak. We may wear a kinte cloth scarf but that is as far we are going. For the record (but don’t’ tell White people) we are African Americans only to make the White folks mad. There is no way we will ever leave or even visit Africa.”

Cont. Part II
The African Americans refused to honor this stipulation as they often brought all of their children and anybody that they had convinced that America was not their home. Many confused students also fled the line at the Name Change Office when they gave some serious thought to being born in America.
Samuel the son of John noted that he was convinced that Black people of various ethnic groups in the United States of America that have enslaved ancestors are a distinct Black race.
Monkey Do at this point insisted on bringing more clarity to the confusion caused by the Name Change people. He said….”There are often reasons why the Courts will not allow a name change. The court must find that the requested name change is consistent with the public interest. A person is not allowed to change their name in order to avoid judgments or legal actions against him or her, or to avoid debts and obligations. A person cannot change their name to defraud any person.
I wonder if confused students the young and the old that debate issues about being Black in America or African in American is in the public interest?”
“What.” This was the response from Monkey See. He said ….”Are you kidding? What about fraud? I believe that many of the Name Change People have sought to confuse the historical record of Black American subjects especially in the United States of America.
For example so many of these people have taken over many History Departments at various Colleges and Universities and claimed they are African Studies Departments instead of Black American Studies Departments. If that is not fraud what is? Do most people that have at least a basic understanding of how the word History is defined note a clear distinction between American History that includes the Black Experience and African History?
There are also reasons why a person might not be allowed to change his or her name? For an order of name change to be granted, the court must find sufficient reasons for the change and also find it consistent with the public interest. A change of name upon marriage, dissolution, or divorce meets these requirements.
Well what about the Name Change People that want to be African? Can you just reject your given legal name and change it because you have a psychological problem about your ethnic origins? Is this sufficient reason for a name change? Well what about the Name Change People seeing a psychologist instead of worrying and harassing American citizens at various United States Government offices?
Meanwhile the process for obtaining a name change for an adult in the State of Tennessee begins with the filing of the Petition with the Circuit, Probate, or County Court in the county in which the petitioner resides. If the Court finds good cause for the name change and it is not in conflict with the public interest, the Court will grant the request and issue the Order of Name Change.”

The ParaFable Of The Misnomer Of Alleged African Americans
(22 November 2013)
There have been many strange and often illogical things that have occurred as we look at the Time Line of the Black American Experience.
The Name Game is thus extended to include the Name Change People. However, some although they claim Freedom, Justice and Equality only serve to move in jest and hate espousing notions of supremacy.
One man denounced the house he lived in and left. Another man denounced some of the things in his house and stayed on confusing self and others he frowned and smiled upon.
All through the Jungle that was still the Ghetto there was much talk once more than once about the shallow and loose mindset of the African Americans. The records show that a group of African Americans their partners in crime and certain Cultural Nationalists had set fire to every Immigration Office in the United States of America.
They now declared that there are no Immigration processing offices to send us back home because we refuse to go. Meanwhile we have devised a plan of action whereby Africa is in our mind and culture is interchangeable. You just have to be persistent in denouncing what you don’t like about America.
Therefore in the on-going quest to denounce everything (not everything) well only certain things about America the African Americans invaded the office where you make a legal claim to change your name. For the record Onajaye Charles, Sadat Adams and Jawbo Lewis were still upset about the problems they had experienced at the Immigration Office. Although claiming the entire continent of Africa as their homeland no one among them wanted to leave America.
But due to the confusion the African Americans caused and the scuffles and fighting among them and the Cultural boys they just snapped. They didn’t go Postal because none of the African Americans would work at the United States Postal Service however, they went misnomer and tried to destroy every Immigration Office by fire.
For the record the process for changing one’s name had been taken from the Circuit, Probate and County Court. Also the African Americans had demanded that they should not have to file the legal forms required. Mainly because there was always great confusion over their nationality. The Court had also noted that a person must have attained the age of 18 years thus one has to be an adult.
The Ambush of Authentic Black History, Black Studies
The Afro-centricity of the Cultural Purists was/is rooted
and grounded in African culture. Is this logical reasoning
for the confusion among many young students that embark
on the study of Black American history?
Down through 1900 and the time of Rights that are Civil an organized
effort began for sought after liberty for the formerly over-worked
labor force that had no record of wages. Education eventually became
a part of the Freedom quest.
Black folk were not only mis-educated but under-educated
as they were also unemployed and under-employed. Then came
Negro History Week in 1926. By contemporary times we witnessed
Black History Month throughout the month of February.
However, education for the wretched of the earth had limits. Carter G.
Woodson cried out in 1933 about the Mis-Education of the
Negro who was/is the Black American. Had Black History
Week failed? Every day we love the Lord all days into yesterday
Meanwhile the people Black with few letters still missed
academic training that carried the truth of the Black American
Experience. Some knew and some proved the longevity of
By 1968 the sincere, honest and diligent Student Movement
demanded the inclusion of the realities of the Black
Experience as a part of College curriculums. Although courses in
African History were often included the emphasis was on the
Black American Experience.
The skirmish between the real radical and the upstart
Cultural Nationalists resulted in a takeover of Black Studies.
There was eventually a sharing of philosophies.
A common ground appeared among the Eurocentric scholars
and the Cultural Purists who also share much in common with
the Afrikan centered philosophies that approve of supremacy in
all things Afrikan and not Black.
Meanwhile the independent thinkers were purged as no one among
the imposters wanted the whole truth while trying to perform a
miracle of developing, transforming African culture to Black
America in a piecemeal fashion. Can Blacks also be racists?
Can these same folk also sponsor an aspect of economic racism?

The Siege of Black History Black Studies Passé
(23 October 2013- 6 November 2013)
John said the truth about his heritage was no threat to anyone. However, the imposters shaded in a stark dark stygian hue begged to differ.
Meanwhile since John always remembered his right name, his ethnicity/race his application for employment and the American Dream could be a reality.
But those that had a great memory lapse regarding their given names, race/ethnicity and country claimed alien status on their application and were detained because Uncle Sam smiled on American citizens.
Peace be unto you. The war of letters began soon after the first captured Black souls set foot in North America. His initial capture and departure from a distant shore also came with a muted mouth inflicted on these wretched souls by the kidnappers and those that paid a ransom for fresh Black bodies.
Due to an economic system that thrived on the ignorance of a bound in bondage work force, education the ability to read, write and count from 1-10 was not within the laws, customs or traditions that came to be prominent in support of forced and whip driven labor.
Education did come as an aftermath of a failed agrarian economic system which faltered at a quest to become independent. But few other human beings in the north or south wanted the once enslaved human subjects to really know how to count let alone read.
Black Thieves In Disguise
They came once more than once as White

Some had forgotten that the intellectual community
is different from the general community. But did the
“Name Game” become corrupted with “African” by intellectuals
or politicians, activists, ministers or someone drinking
Wild Irish Rose to the excess?
Just how many investigated the claims made by the
television that all Black people in America over
night became African Americans or Afrikans. For
the record the Afrikans had been around for some
time trying to take everybody back to Africa without
John still at peace although with a bitter taste for all
of this confusion said…”Civil Rights activists nor
Civil Rights organizations have any authority to
change the name for Black people.”
Then ‘South Georgia Pete’ and ‘Sam last name Bo’ from
West Tennessee said…”Well what are you doing Freedom
Journal? You seem to be doing the same thing changing our
name to Black. What are you talking about all of my people are
light skin. I really want to be a brown African.”
Meanwhile a child was born who could think and reason. The
mother and father were both Black and had enslaved ancestors.
The child looked at the skin color of his parents he looked at his
skin he knew his address was College Hill Courts on the West
side of Chattanooga Tennessee.
No one among hospital staff mentioned anything about Africa.
Everything he saw around him made mention of the culture and
environment he was born into. He knew who he was just as sure as
if he was born in an Eagles nest.

Black Leadership: Weak, Strong, Compromised
At night and during the rise of the Sun at mid-
day John dreamed as he saw the independent posture
of the man Frederick Douglass. He fled from slavery in
Douglass was a Black Abolitionist as Africa knew
not his name or his claim to fame. He spoke up until
the time of Booker T. Washington but he stood tall
while Washington fell down.
Meanwhile Booker T. joined in the leadership ranks with
Douglass but had confused notions as the right way the
former enslaved brethren should go. He was attracted
to a compromised and sycophant view of his blackness.
Booker T. threw up and down his soiled and calloused hands
at the Atlanta Exposition as he embraced Grady as the architect
of the south. But soon by the time the century turned and 1900
W.E. B. DuBois emerged and soon would Marcus Garvey.
The liberal elements that took hold of Civil Rights Organizations
had no desire for the economic well being of the Blacks. Thus
these organizations became disturbed by liberalism that felt
they had the right way for all causes Black or Negro.
More than a century ago 100 years in the making conservative and liberal
agendas seemed to have well defined boundaries. Most saw liberals
with a feeling of justice for the downtrodden and those experiencing
the Black Holocaust or an on-going economic depression.
I remember Frederick Douglass in 1852 saying loud that the 4th of July
was a holiday for White America. But now the dream that has become
a reality is upon us in 2013.
The Black man, woman, boys and little girls are as much American
as apple pie. Their ancestors have paid the price as they baked many
pies in the big house called mansions and small houses on farms
owned by someone else.
The fields that laid up great fortunes based on cotton were turned by African
and then Black American hands. Blacks stood up and fell in strength in all the wars
waged by America. The Black American no longer dreams of a piece of the pie.
The dream is now a living reality.
So is the distinct Black American personality

The Black American Dream
(20 September 2013, 29 September 2013)
Black American independent thinkers dream to reality. They also declare a loyalty to the land of their birth. They also seek not to be an apologist for the confused Negro.
There is no logic claiming a home in a foreign land. There are no Africans born in Tennessee that have descended from the people that were once enslaved in the United States of America. John said that Africans are born in Africa therefore Black Americans are born in America. Meanwhile, just what do the real Africans call Blacks in America?
South Georgia Pete went to Africa. However, he was identified as the Negro or Black man from America. But when Pete came back to Georgia he called himself an African American but the Africans knew he would always be a confused Negro.
Peace be unto you. As God broke the day the clouds did not disappear but the Sun would still shine as my heart embraced the Spirit and I dreamed unto reality.
There were times as we look back on the time line when the Negras had no rights and really no name. But a clash of swords, black powder and cannon balls regained lost land for the victors. But what of the victims of the land who were the rogues that stole cotton at midnight?
Meanwhile the Name Game took hold once more than once as Colored and Negro merged and so did the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the United States Constitution. Freedom thus came, or some said it was freedom and so did citizenship and the right to vote.
Emancipation also brought on a troubled and turbulent reconstruction period and soon a great lash backwards by 1877.
The former people enslaved became a new horse or mule that still worked and toiled like their ancestors in old cotton fields. They never shared the crop and there was always a displaced and rejected tenant on someone else’s farm or plantation.
The Proud Black American: Visions To Reality
(Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow)
(16-25 October 2013)
One man who said he was/is an African American who resides in and was born and raised in Tennessee noted that he was rooted and grounded in African culture, customs, traditions etc. He thus changed his name learned to speak an African language and noted to everyone that would listen that he was/is African.
However the clear definitive qualities of culture in this instance note: The civilization of a given race or nation at a given time or over all time. Meanwhile there was no ship or boat large enough to carry or bring all of Africa to Tennessee or any port in New York or anywhere else along the eastern seaboard of the United States of America. He also refused to board any boat or ship even the pleasure boats all along the great Tennessee River and Chickamauga Lake.
Peace be unto you. I would imagine there was a time even before the trade in human beings took place that those that are Black stood up proud. I also believe that in many of these people regardless of the circumstances they always had some idea of not only who they were but their destiny.
The sands that are often blood-stained and dirt of the times of yesterday renders a historical record we have no control over. But we do have some control over the times of tomorrow. What about today? The Sun will rise today it will surely set on tomorrow. God the Father breaks the day.
What if yesterday had not seen an enslaved people from “The Land of the Blacks,” that some called Africa? Would we still see the distinct Black American personality that brought the world the powerful, call to freedom and liberation in the bottom beat of the Drums? Then came Spirituals, Work Songs that were Blues songs, Blues, Gospel, All that Jazz, Ragtime, Rhythm and Blues, Songs of contemporary Liberation, Rap and Hip Hop.
Would the transplanted African who came to America from Africa and gained citizenship (who became the African American) render the same contributions that Black Americans have given to the world?
Also as the independent mind continues to see through certain eyes “What if the South had won the Civil War?” Would Black Americans be better off today? Would there be more Black businesses? Would any of these Black people adopt the foreign notion of attaching African to their American heritage? Just how long will the people enslaved the Negroes remain in bondage?
There was nothing but silence as the Africans that refused to return
home tried to fix Africa in a name. Meanwhile, the Black middle class and
the lumpen proletariat had taken over the Name Game. The Ant Eater called
‘Sam last name Bo’ who also loved to eat members of the roach family joined
in with the name changers.
The Colored Ant Eater was born in North Chattanooga. However, he was in constant
denial about his home while embracing the land of some of his ancestors. Many
thought he was foolish as no one he knew could pronounce his new name. The big
Black flies were all over the place and they always wanted to visit Africa,
take a hay ride and run and fly through the bush at midnight.
But ‘Money See’ and ‘Money Do’ and all the Baboons they knew and
‘King’ the Gorilla called the home where they slept home. Most
were Black all over but nobody knew any color called Africa?
However, we all remember many tigers, lions and panthers that were raised
outside of captivity in the new world called America who were
set in rebellious ways. They carried a great grudge against the
The Snakes had bitten and poisoned many subjects from Africa and
throughout the world. The Monkey Kingdom was no exception.
Also the tigers and their clan were often poisoned as it was the custom
of the White Snakes.
Meanwhile ‘Monkey See’ and ‘Monkey Do’ had great vision. They
realized the essence of pride in the land they had worked, bled and died
in all the wars for as Black Americans. However, the tigers, the lions and the
panthers cried out in anger identifying with another place far away that knew not
their name or the Name African American.
