Dr. William Scott's Payback for Teaching Black History


Dr. William Scott, a renowned African American historian, taught at the University of Wisconsin (Madison), Harvard University, Oberlin College, and Lehigh University, and was the first black dean at Wellesley College. He is the author of a number of scholarly articles and three books on African American history that are recommended reading and text books for colleges and universities. Dr. Scott helped to set up an African American Studies program at Clark Atlanta University. Is this why his first male offspring, Terrell Scott, has been imprisoned for over five years in Pennsylvania without a trial?

My Daddy, Dr. Scott

By Holly Alston (eight numbered paragraphs)

1. Dr. William Scott is a native of North Philadelphia. An ardent learner from an early age, Bill Scott was the first person in his family to graduate from high school. He graduated with honors from Central High Boys where he ran track and played varsity football. He received a bachelor's degree (cum laude) in History from Lincoln University, where he also became a member of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity. He earned a master's degree in African History from Howard University, and a master's and doctoral degree in African American History from Princeton University.

2. In his long career in academia, he has taught at the University of Wisconsin (Madison), Wellesley College, Harvard University, Oberlin College, and Lehigh University. He is the author of a number of scholarly articles and three books on African American history. He says the most important of these studies was his Sons of Sheba's Race, a study of worldwide black reactions to the Italian invasion of Ethiopia in 1935, which he published with Indiana Press in 1993.

3. The focus of Dr. Scott's research has been Ethiopian symbolism in U.S. black thought. His work seeks to describe and explain how ancient and modern Ethiopia served as a significant liberation emblem and source of inspiration for people of African descent throughout the world. For the past year he has been working on a new book, which he has entitled Redemption Psalm. It explores the role Psalm 68:31, "Ethiopia shall stretch forth its hands unto God", has played as a divine promise of black salvation, spiritually and secularly. It will be the first published full-length study of the subject.

4. Dr. Scott has traveled extensively---to Ireland, Germany, Austria, England, Barbados, the Virgin Islands, Antigua, the Bahamas, and Puerto Rico, but mostly to Africa. He has visited Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania. Lesotho, Swaziland, Botswana, and South Africa. He worked out of Johannesburg, South Africa over a period of ten consecutive years with the Educational Opportunities Council, headed by Archbishop Desmond Tutu. This was in the 1980's during the racist Apartheid era. He also served as Associate Dean at Wellesley and Oberlin College; Dean of Arts and Sciences at Clark Atlanta University; Director of the UNCF/Mellon Minority Fellowship Program; and Director of Africana Studies at Wellesley College, Oberlin College, and Lehigh Universities. In this regard, he has been an early architect of black studies in American colleges and universities.


5. A longtime Christian, Dr. Scott was previously deeply involved in the Cultural and Scholarship Ministry at the Greater Shiloh Church, located in Easton, Pennsylvania, which he joined in 1997. He recently wrote and narrated a 90 minute video history of the church's history entitled "A long Walk by Faith: History of the Greater Shiloh Church, 1904-2010". He has occasionally spoken at the Church on the subject of God's role in Black History.

6. This is a topic, he says, "That does not seem to get much attention in our churches. Congregations learn all the time what God did, for instance, in the lives of ancient Jews. But hardly ever is anything said about what the Almighty has done in the history of people of African descent. It's as if He never did anything for us as a people."

7. The lack of an appreciation of the history of people of African descent, he believes, is a critical reason why large numbers of black youth seem to have so little respect for themselves and education. In addition to being "saved", our youth," he says, "would benefit greatly from developing a positive sense of themselves as a people of African heritage. It's hard to identify any people who are grossly ignorant of their past going anywhere in this world as a group. It seems to me there aren't any."

8. It was Dr. Scott's mother Eleanor (Sugie) Smith, now 90 years old, who originally taught him the love of books although she, herself, never finished high school and was employed as a domestic worker her entire life. "Mom never thought she could do better, even though she could conjugate complicated Latin verbs and out-spell almost anyone." His daughter Holly Benin Alston, and grandsons, Kai, Amari, De'jour, and Terrell, who live in Easton and Bethlehem, all share his love for black history and intense devotion to social justice. "I thank God daily", says Dr. Scott with a broad smile, "for their love and support."


Dr. Scott has now retired and battles heart disease and lung cancer. His firstborn grandson, Terrell Scott, is a mentally ill young man who was arrested on the word of a middle aged white woman who used Terrell as a sex slave for four years. Terrell was arrested on Crystal's unsubstantiated allegations that he sexually abused her minor daughters. In fact, Terrell saved the children from their mother's negligence and abuse by reporting Crystal to Pennsylvania's Child Protective Services. His allegations were investigated and found to be true, and the children were removed from Crystal's custody. Crystal retaliated months later by levying false charges against Terrell. 

The legal system persecutes Terrell Scott and withholds his Sixth Amendment right to a public trial. Terrell's entire family, including Dr. Scott, suffers from legal abuse syndrome because of Terrell's false arrest, denial of human and civil rights, and torture in prison. Is this Dr. Scott's payback for teaching African American History in colleges and universities throughout America and in other countries? Is this professor of African American Studies now treated like a government whistle blower and his offspring like a slave?

Information about Terrell Scott's unprecedented denial of human and civil rights is chronicled in online articles by Mary Neal (Google "Terrell Scott Mary Neal"). See, for example, "Terrell Scott - Too 'Crazy' for Trial, but Competent for a Plea Deal" at
http://freespeakblog.blogspot.com/2014/01/terrell-scott-too-crazy-for-trial-but.html

Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill (AIMI) is bundling up to 100 cases of negligence, abuse, and unrequited murders of mentally ill people and drug/alcohol addicts of all races to present to the United Nations in 2015. Terrell Scott's case will be presented in International Court for relief and restitution and as an example of America's denial of human and civil rights to Americans with mental disabilities - a historic and ongoing problem in the USA. All persons who have been negatively impacted by the USA's negligence to treat mentally ill Americans and drug/alcohol addicts are also welcome to join the class. For information, please see our "AIMI-Human Rights" website at
http://AIMI-HumanRights.blogspot.com

Holly Alston, Terrell's mother, gave an update about Terrell and participated in a discussion about criminalizing mental illness, racism, prejudice against GLBT citizens in the legal system, and torture in domestic prisons on Human Rights Demand at Blogtalkradio, Dec. 17, 2014
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/humanrightsdemand/2014/12/18/human-rights-for-prisoners-march--dec-17-2014 - Access 24/7.


Two reviews of Dr. Scott's scholarly work are below:

"The Sons of Sheba's Race: African-Americans and the Italo-Ethiopian War, 1935-1941" illustrates the response to the Italo-EthiopianWar of people of color who linked the Ethiopian struggle to their own battles against racism and imperialism. William R. Scott demon­strates the significance of Ethiopia as a his­torical symbol for African-Americans. They prayed, preached, and protested to help save the world's last outpost of authentic black rule from white control. The African-American response to the Italian invasion of Ethiopia provides a picture of black intel­lectual thought in America in the 1930s.

William R. Scott challenges the view that the Great Depression virtually ended sup­port for black nationalism, showing that ele­ments of the nationalist creed remained crucial to black American ideology a de­cade after the decline of Garveyism and contributed to African-American sympathy for Ethiopia. Scott focuses on the pro-Ethio­pian activities of the Harlem united front, which brought together black nationalists, communists, and civil rights moderates. He shows the extensive elite and grassroots interest in Ethiopia's fate and the wide­spread recognition that Ethiopia's indepen­dence was extremely important to black racial pride. The book also cogently exam­ines the issue of Ethiopian racial identity, the controversy over this issue, and its effect on African-American support for the Ethiopian cause.

Pan-Africanism, Africa and African-American relations, and the role of the religiopolitical concept of Ethiopianism all came into play in the doomed efforts to assist Ethiopia in its struggle against fascist tyranny. Scott concludes that black poverty and powerlessness impeded black American efforts to assist Ethiopia, but that prodigious pro-Ethiopian activism produced important new appreciations of Africa, the Western powers, and world race relations among the black American masses.

Beginning with the horrors of the Middle Passage and following African American history through to modern topcis of post-Civil Rights politics, this volume provides an overview of the African American Experience. 23 historians offer a variety of perspectives on topics sucha as urbanization, religion, family life, class literature, music, and education in articles covering slavery, Reconstruction, the formation of black identity and culture, and the Civil Rights movement.

...a collection of essays by top scholars that makes compelling reading for anyone. -- Morning Call

Product Description

This one-volume, comprehensive overview of African American history brings together original essays by some of the foremost authorities in the field. Arranged both thematically and chronologically, these papers discuss a wide range of topics - from the Middle Passage to the Civil Rights Movement; from abolition to the Great Migration; from issues in religion, class and family to literature, education and politics.

Paragraph 1 repeated: Dr. William Scott, a renowned African American historian, taught at the University of Wisconsin (Madison), Harvard University, Oberlin College, and Lehigh University, and was the first black dean at Wellesley College. He is the author of a number of scholarly articles and three books on African American history that are recommended reading and text books for colleges and universities. Dr. Scott helped to set up an African American Studies program at Clark Atlanta University. Is this why his first male offspring, Terrell Scott, has been imprisoned for over five years in Pennsylvania without a trial?

Crosses Burning to Prevent Murder Disclosures

Sorry, online friends. human rights have not made it to families of victims in America yet. Whenever I take a microphone, the powers that should not be tremble and quake. I am not being allowed to schedule our broadcast for today on "Human Rights Demand" channel at Blogtalkradio. I am in bondage to prevent me from revealing the many tortures and murders of mentally ill people in America, particularly my own brother, Larry Neal.



I had announced a Human Rights Day broadcast. The Internet in my house (through ATT) has been turned off all day. When it became operable again, I was not allowed to schedule the Human Rights Day broadcast at Blogtalkradio. As the survivor of a police victim whose murder the United States Justice Department conspires with Memphis Shelby County Jail to keep covered-up, I am continually subjected to extreme censorship, following, and financial persecution. And still I rise!

Many of you read about Tamir Rice's 14-year-old sister being handcuffed after Cleveland police shot her 12-year-old brother. Police then threatened Tamir's mother with arrest for being irate over her son. What might not be evident from their reports is that black people often suffer retaliation for exposing their relative's murders by police or trying to get justice. It representative of burning crosses in a family's yard that dared complain after a close relative's lynching: a threat as racists glory in their dominance over a people.

Tonight, the cross is burning at Blogtalkradio, where I am not allowed to go on air. I apologize for any inconvenience this causes those who planned to come on the show at 7pm Pacific Time and talk about your human rights causes. I looked forward to hearing from you. We will do it another time.

It seems fitting that I cannot celebrate Human Rights Day with you, because my family truly has none that are recognized in Amerikkka.

We already have a show scheduled at Blogtalkradio for 9pm Pacific time December 10 at Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill. Come and see if NSA allows us to have that show. Call-in at (818) 572-2947, or listen live or to the tape 24/7 at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/nnia1/2014/12/11/assistance-to-the-incarcerated-mentally-ill
As my 91-year-old mother asked of Eric Holder and the Department of Justice and Memphis Shelby County Jail during her radio interview on Human Rights Demand, "Please tell me how Larry Neal died." They won't even tell us whether they Tasered him to death, killed him in a restraint chair, beat him to death, or simply held him 18 days under secret arrest to deprive him of his vital heart medications and watch him expire from his heart condition. We don't know if Larry was used for waterboarding to train the advanced interrogation experts who were sent to torture detainees in the War on Terror camps.

The most frightening thing for hypocrites in public offices, human and civil rights organizations, and The (Johnnie) Cochran Firm frauds offices in Georgia, Tennessee, and Washington, D.C. is depicted in this photograph:

No Indictments for Police Killing Blacks or Mentally Challenged Caucasians

Thousands of protesters feel that police officers need reminding that black lives matter. The lives of mentally challenged Americans also matter. People in these two groups comprise the overwhelming majority of the nation's police-involved casualties, including avoidable deaths. It is impossible to give an exact count of how many Americans with mental disabilities or African Americans die at the hands of police officers each year, because police seem not to have any reporting responsibilities in that regard. We do know it is a significant number. For instance, seven people were shot dead by police in Florida within eight days in November 2014. Florida would have killed eight, except police missed when shooting at an unarmed African American father who was trying to get his daughter home for her asthma treatment (see the AntiMedia link below). If one citizen per day is killed in all 50 states, the death toll is 18,250 annually (especially when including inmates killed by corrections officers).

Countries that disregard the right to life for mentally challenged people show the same disregard for minorities. More than 300,000 mentally challenged individuals of all races were isolated and killed in Nazi Germany before that nation began its ethnic cleansing and killed millions of Jews and blacks. In the USA, approximately 1.25 million mentally challenged people are isolated in prisons and jails (comprising over 60 percent of inmates in solitary confinement). Deaths of mentally ill Americans are quite common during their imprisonment.


A Maryland grand jury refused to indict police officers responsible for the death of Ethan Saylor, a 26-year-old Caucasian man with Down Syndrome. Saylor was killed inside a movie theater in January 2013 while wearing police handcuffs. The official cause of death was ruled a homicide by asphyxiation. An autopsy revealed that Saylor suffered a fractured throat cartilage, which one expert says could only have been caused by force of some kind. Force could have included a direct blow or manual strangulation.


The Maryland grand jury's refusal to indict Saylor's killers comes on the heels of two other highly contested grand jury decisions regarding the police killings of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner in New York. Eric Garner died as a result of an illegal choke hold, which might have also been used to kill Saylor.

Alternative Media Syndicate.com reports, "Because of Saylor's large size, the officers say they had to use three sets of handcuffs on him and placed him on his stomach for 'one to two minutes' ... Just as in the case of Eric Garner, the police have said that being obese 'contributed' to Saylor’s death, making him 'more susceptible to breathing problems.'"

The lives of mentally dysfunctional Caucasians like Kelly Thomas and Ethan Saylor seem to receive no more protection than do the lives of African Americans. Saylor refused to leave the theater after the conclusion of a movie he was taken to see by his caretaker. When she explained to the theater staff that they did not have the fare to watch "Zero Dark Thirty” a second time, police were called. The fare for most movies is less than $10. Black people, like our mentally ill citizens, are killed for tiny sums. See Kenneth Harding's death by San Francisco police officers who asked him to prove he had paid the $2 train fare. The shooting is on the YouTube video below and at http://youtu.be/qE8iLrqWpwA


More information about Ethan Saylor case is available at the first two of the four articles listed below. Ethan Saylor's parent's reaction to the grand jury's decision not to indict the police officers who killed their son is in:

Florida Police Killed Seven People in Eight Days in November 2014

Deaths that happen to people in custody, especially the mentally disabled, are subject to cover-ups. They rarely result in criminal charges or terminations of corrections officers.

Thank you for giving Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill.
It would be illegal to keep a dog in a tight space 23 hours a day and gas or Taser him for barking. It would be illegal to put a dog in deadly restraint for control. That happens to mentally ill people routinely in the nation's correctional facilities. What happened to Larry Neal?

Eric Garner and Larry Neal: Unrequited Deaths

If law enforcement gets away with killings like Eric Garner's, which happened in public and was captured on video, imagine the kidnappings and murders behind bars and the elaborate cover-ups that follow.

Wrongful Death of Larry Neal
http://WrongfulDeathofLarryNeal.com/main.html


Condolences to Eric Garner's family and close friends. Our family knows exactly how you feel. Take comfort in this: At least Eric's fatality is not a secret. You did not have to spend eleven years fighting to expose his wrongful death. You have open disclosure, thanks to the video taken by the young man who was indicted (whereas Eric's killer was not). Once all the police officers wear cameras, more African American men may be secretly arrested first, like Larry Neal was.

SECRET JAIL DEATHS are already catching on. Consider these cases:

JEROME MURDOUGH was dead for around three weeks before AP blew the cover-up when a reporter contacted the former Marine's family (baked to death at Riker's Island).

DARREN RAINEY had been dead for over a year before the public was informed by the Miami Herald (scalded to death in Dade County Correctional Institution's shower).

DANIEL LINSINBIGLER's mother was initially told by jail officials that her teenage son was found unresponsive in his cell, but inmates warehoused with him later told her, the media, and justice officials that Linsinbigler was murdered. His death was ruled a homicide by suffocation (pepper spray, restraint chair, and Taser in Florida's Clay County Jail).

CHRISTOPHER LOPEZ was dead 17 months without San Carlos Correctional Facility reporting his demise to the State (restraint chair). http://www.9news.com/story/news/investigations/2014/06/19/mentally-ill-death-lawsuit/10882089/

MARY died weeks before her family was finally told when they arrived to visit her on Mother's Day in a Texas correctional facility. Mary had apparently been killed by her mentally ill cellmate, according to Brenda Anderson, who was released from the same facility. Anderson revealed the murder cover-up when she was a guest on a Human Rights Demand broadcast on Blogtalkradio. Listen to the torture victim speak about her own life-threatening circumstances in that facility.
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/humanrightsdemand/2014/11/09/brenda-anderson-prison-torture-victim

None of the cover-ups listed above were as successful as the one involving Larry Neal's kidnapping and secret murder in Memphis Shelby County Jail, which happened on August 1, 2003. Of course, Memphis has more experience with assassination cover-ups than most other places do, and probably more co-conspirators in Washington, D.C. (MLK). 

There may be many more deaths in custody that have not yet been disclosed - even to the victims' families. Cover-up conspiracies help avoid wrongful death lawsuits, censure from the U.N., and the nationwide protests that Eric Garner's unrequited death caused. Elected officials probably liked the idea of secret arrests so much that they passed NDAA in 2011.

We have God's promise that everything hidden will eventually be revealed.

"Africans Were the First Americans," by Dr. Imhotep, African Historian


African historian Dr. David Imhotep will be our guest on November 29, 2014 on the "Human Rights Demand" radio broadcast at Blogtalkradio station. To connect with the host, Mary Neal, please call (347) 857-3293 to speak on air. Your questions and comments are appreciated. We will be live on the air and the tape will also be archived at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/humanrightsdemand/2014/11/30/the-first-americans-were-africans-by-dr-david-imhotep

A new book contradicts what our grade school textbooks have included for ages and could change the way history is written about the Western Hemisphere. In “The First Americans Were Africans” (published by AuthorHouse), author and academic Dr. David Imhotep is bringing forth decades of research and evidence to present readers a comprehensive look into the history and identity of the first Americans. Asserting that Africans were the first Americans and that they arrived 51,000 years prior to the Mongolians, Imhotep illustrates a date that is four times earlier than what is largely referenced.

“Africans not only came before Columbus, but were in the Americas long before any other group, at least 56,000 years ago,” says Dr. Imhotep. “With this book, I produce and expand on evidence from several scientific fields, credible scholars, professors and researchers.”

Imhotep’s extensive research and gathering of evidence is in part a product of his academic training, university-level teaching and extensive world travel. One of the first people to hold a Ph.D. with a specialization in ancient African history, Imhotep credits the creation of his book with helping to life what he calls the “veil of secrecy” over American history. He can be emailed at david.imhotep@gmail.com

Expanding on a foundation of research and historic evidence, The First Americans Were Africans provides insight into remnants of architecture, writings and artifacts as it explores the beliefs surrounding the Vikings, Columbus, the Indians and more. With more than 700 footnotes, Imhotep intends for it to also serve as a guide for future research.

“The first Americans came to this land far before what we have been taught,” he says. “This changes the way history has been written, and fills a void that has long existed.”

About the author: 
Dr. David Imhotep is one of the first people to hold a Ph.D. with a specialization in ancient African history. He has traveled the world researching for the last 30 years, searching for relevant and interesting evidence. He has appeared on and been referenced in various media outlets, including “The New York Times.”

Boycott 4 Justice; Our Lives Matter


Only Big Business can order changes in the USA. Make them care about justice. Move protests to suburban malls for increased safety and effectiveness, and Boycott 4 Justice! (Stay on public property, and get permits where applicable.) Protesters must learn to Boycott 4 Justice, or march and mourn FOREVER over corpse after corpse in perpetuum. To us, Black lives matter. The lives of mentally ill and homeless people matter. Mass incarceration and wrongful convictions matter. To decision makers, only money matters. Enlist Big Business to care about justice by withholding what matters most to them - money.



92.1 million: Consumers who shopped on Black Friday in 2013. 248.7 million: Number of shoppers who were in stores and online over Thanksgiving weekend in 2013, up 0.5 percent over the previous year. (Stats are from nrf.com). In 2014, DO NO SHOPPING. Make Big Business demand justice for Michael Brown and other police victims. Demand federal charges against Wilson.



All lives matter. We have the power to effect change peacefully and without bloodshed. We have CONSUMER POWER! Let's use it. Power to the people!



On November 24, 2018, the grand jury in Ferguson, Missouri concluded that Officer Darren Wilson killing an unarmed surrendered black teenager, Michael Brown, did not matter. His death cost elitists nothing. Marching and burning local businesses cost them nothing. Temper tantrums were expected. Over sixty protesters in Ferguson were arrested and will now pay bonds or remain incarcerated and contribute to the prison industrial complex. Demonstrations are largely ineffective except for rallying support. The support is here. It is now time to launch a successful boycott throughout the 2014 Holidays. 




We must now Boycott 4 Justice to end unrequited murders of our children.



We must Boycott 4 Justice to end police terrorism and judicial misconduct against our human and civil rights activists like Rev. Pinkney, to stop the corporate takeover of public land and utilities like water, to stop the slaughter of surrendered suspects like Michael Brown, and stop spying and censorship through NSA.




We must now Boycott 4 Justice to end police aggression against our homeless people.



We must Boycott 4 Justice to save our relatives and neighbors with mental illness from mass arrest and wrongful deaths.




We must Boycott 4 Justice to stop endless wars.




Boycott for Justice because OUR LIVES MATTER!


Picket only at suburban malls. The shoppers should be ashamed to violate our Boycott 4 Justice throughout the 2014 Holidays. It will take more than temper tantrums to effect positive change. No shopping online or in person. Enlist help from Big Business to eliminate injustice in America. If marches and petitions matter to decision makers, Troy Davis would still be alive. Only military might and money matter to elitists. Remain peaceful, and keep your money. Power to the people. BOYCOTT 4 JUSTICE.

MONEY ANSWERETH ALL THINGS. ~Ecc. 10:19

Officer Wilson Acquittal: Boycott 4 Justice


1)  If Officer Wilson is Acquitted, Give No Excuse for Martial Law. BOYCOTT 4 JUSTICE. I believe marching is too dangerous and largely ineffective except for publicity, which Brown's murder already has thanks to previous demonstrations by all of the brave Ferguson protesters. At the end of this article is an alarming news alert from the City of Berkeley, Missouri, advising its citizens to take extraordinary precautions for safety in the event of Wilson's acquittal. Protesters were mostly peaceful during demonstrations immediately after Brown's murder, but police were not. Please recall that a cop was sent to stand behind Ferguson protesters and throw rocks at militarized police - perhaps to draw gunfire. Nobody is likely to be shot or arrested for not Christmas shopping. BOYCOTT 4 JUSTICE.

2)  Everyone who has children should buy each child only one toy if they celebrate Christmas, but stop purchases at that. Some Ferguson organizations plan a boycott for Black Friday (see the photograph above and a news article about the proposed boycott at the first of six links beneath paragraph no. 7). ALL of us should skip Christmas 2014 altogether if Wilson walks. Michael Brown's death must hurt Big Business, and then Big Business will demand justice for Brown and safety for other black youths. It doesn't cost elitists anything to release killer cops, and that is the problem. We must make Wilson's acquittal very expensive in order to get the Justice Department to levy federal charges against Wilson. We have the power. We have consumer power. BOYCOTT 4 JUSTICE.

3)  Send every discount coupon which you received from retailers back to retailers with "Michael Brown" written across them. Explain to children in your families why they will only receive one gift this Christmas, if they expected more. Have them to help protect THEMSELVES and their teenage siblings and cousins and friends by preparing toy ads for mailing back to stores with "Michael Brown" written across the advertisements with bold, black markers. Go online and order NOTHING. Instead send emails to manufacturers saying only "Michael Brown." Teach your children to BOYCOTT 4 JUSTICE.

4)  Boycotting is highly effective if enough people participate, but it is not as exciting as protesting. There will be no media presence and no one making rousing speeches. If you really miss the media and confrontations with police, go picket traitors going into the malls. Ask shoppers why they don't care that youths like Michael Brown are shot for walking while black. Do not block ingress and egress to and from the malls, but picketing on the sidewalks at street level should reduce the number of shoppers significantly. People were afraid and ashamed to shop in my town during boycotts in the 1960s.

5)  Picketing shoppers (with permits, if applicable) should provide the excitement and feeling of comradery that boycotting might lack. The police will surely come, but picketing at shopping malls would reduce the likelihood of police using army tanks, helicopters, rubber bullets, and tear gas on protesters, especially in Caucasian areas. If they do use such methods to violate protesters' free speech and freedom of assembly rights, watch NOBODY go shopping the following day. Success! BOYCOTT 4 JUSTICE!

6)  Not everyone can participate in demonstrations, but everybody can boycott this Christmas season, even timid or elderly people. Experience success while minimizing personal risks. Government ignores demands made by the People, but Big Business is never ignored. There is no better way to appeal to Big Business than to stop business. All of our protest marches in the 1960s had boycotts associated thereto. If success is slow, coordinate with unions and universities to add work strikes and school walk-outs. It would carry significant impact to add hotel and restaurant workers to the strike during the holidays, especially New Year's. Be effective, peaceful, and safer. 

7)  Thanks to protesters in Ferguson and throughout America directly after Brown's murder, we are set to achieve victory. All it should require to have federal charges levied against Wilson if he is acquitted is a little coordination and sacrifice - not more risks of harm. No adults ever got arrested for "not shopping", "not working," or "not going to school." BOYCOTT 4 JUSTICE. See a St. Louis Post-Dispatch article at the link below about the Black Friday boycott sponsored by a coalition of organizations demanding justice for Michael Brown. Their boycott should be observed nationally and span the entire holiday season to ensure success and bring greater respect for the lives of our young men of color everywhere. On the other hand, the article at the second link and the notice to Berkeley, Missouri citizens below should serve as a warning to everyone about where this issue can lead.
