Petition to Salisbury City Council

Save the Fame Statue in Salisbury.

With this recent political wave to remove all things that offend someone I hope you will stand with the many who want the Fame Confederate Statue in Salisbury NC to remain. This statue represents the men who died fighting for a war that the state lawmakers voted to fight. The state lawmakers voted to succeed from Union not the men who fought the war. These brave men died fighting not because they wanted to protect slavery but because their state voted to succeed. Less than 3 percent of them men who fought even owned slaves themselves.  Keeping this statue honors our Veterans. If this comes down, who is next? Congress states Confederate Soldiers are legal veterans.  By Public Law 85-425, May 23, 1958 (H.R. 358) 72 Statute 133 states – “(3) (e) for the purpose of this section, and section 433, the term ‘veteran’ includes a person who served in the military or naval forces of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War, and the term ‘active, military or naval service’ includes active service in such forces.” As a result of this law the last surviving Confederate Veteran received a U.S. Military pension until his death in 1959, and from that day until present, descendants of Confederate veterans have been able to receive military monuments to place on graves from the Veteran’s Administration for their ancestors. A Confederate Veteran should therefore be treated with the same honor and dignity of any other American veteran. I asked the City Council to keep the Fame Statue to honor these men and to help us learn from our history. Whether you feel this war was  good or bad, it is to be embraced, not deleted from our minds and history classes.  When history is forgotten, removed, or ignored it is bound to repeat itself.  This is what a small minority of people want, to brainwash everyone leaving them with no true facts.  This nation learned from its victories as well as its failures, and tearing down monuments and taking away everything that has made us great is a disservice to us all.

GET CALIFORNIA NAKED FOR CALIFORNIA LOVE: BILL FOR A NEW SEAL

Say her name: Queen Calafía-The Real Black Amazon in the Great Seal of California, yet isn't depicted at all and has been dethrowned from her rightful place as California's ruler. Mission: Get Queen Calafía's California naked to strip and loose the historical inaccuracies to gain and show the truth for acceptance of their Black Queen Calafía's California love. Show this by fixing inaccuracies, promoting and adding the name to current or future plans. ATTENTION DID YOU KNOW THE STATE SEAL OF CALIFORNIA WAS DESIGNED BY A  UNION TURNED CONFEDERATE VIRGINIA SOLDIER WHO MURDERED CHIEF TUSKEGEE’S SEMINOLE INDIANS & BLACKS IN THE SEMINOLE INDIAN WAR AND MEXICANS IN THE MEXICAN AMERICAN WAR? DID YOU KNOW WONDER WOMAN® IS REALLY THE BLACK QUEEN CALAFÍA AND ROMAN MINERVA IS REALLY SUPPOSED TO BE THE EGYPTIAN GODDESS NÊITH IN THE GREAT SEAL OF CALIFORNIA; BOTH SHOULD BE ANCIENT BLACK WOMEN IMAGES? DID YOU KNOW CALIFORNIA REALLY MEANS A GOLDEN ISLAND OF STRONG, BEAUTIFUL, COURAGEOUS, & HARD-WORKING BLACK WOMEN RULED BY QUEEN CALAFÍA  ON AN ISLAND OF GOLD FROM AN ANTICIENT SPANISH NOVEL?  BACKGROUND 155 YEAR OLD QUESTION REMAINS UNANSWERED: "Observe, O reader, that, although very black, and very large, she is very beautiful.  Why has not Powers carved the statue of California out of the blackest Egyptian marbles?” Rev. Edward Everette Hale, (see  www.caliisme.com). Hernan Cortes believed in this mystical island of black Amazon women and transferred the name from the romance novel to real land. ISSUES -LIFT THE VEIL OF IGNORANCE ON THE CONFEDERATE CA SEAL The hidden “C” in California: the seal is a Confederate symbol drawn by a Virginia Confederate soldier who obviously wanted to mask the real “C” in California- its Chocolate ladies! The Great Seal of The State of California shows a Roman goddess Minerva when it should have been its black Queen Calafía's namesake of the all black woman Amazon island called California originating from the Spanish romance novel. The Senate of California is deliberately carrying forward this historical inaccuracy.  California has been such a progressive beautiful example of removing divisiveness (see www.caliisme.com/news ) and now needs to be fixed to right a wrong.  We need legislative action in a directive bill to change the seal to a new representative seal. LEGAL ISSUES Enough is enough! When credit is due, credit should be given. When something is red, don’t call it blue.  Period. The Confederacy lost the Civil War and we are now the United States of America.  Thus, the Confederacy should not be writing America’s history.   Separate claims under separate sources of law that could potentially arise under the Constitutions of America (14th Amendment) and California.  The seal is stiched into police uniforms and engraved in judicial courtrooms.   STOLEN LEGACY  Symbols are representative agendas of what is actually happening now.  Hidden symbols are powerful hidden agendas (i.e. the swastika, the Confederate symbols) that masquerade and hide hate, perpetuate lies, targeting, profiling, discriminating and destroying families (i.e. see disproportionate poverty, federal imprisonment rates, cycles of centuries of repetitive sentiments ̶ Slavery to Chief Tuskegee’s Seminole Indians Wars to Trail of Tears to the Jim Crow era to the Black Wall Street to the Civil Rights movement to the Tuskegee Experiment to the Flint, Michigan Water Crisis to Black Lives Matter to recent Charlottesville, Virginia tragedy).   Black history has already been stolen via white oppressors from Slavery.  California is now our oldest, most ancient treasure and currently is a slap in the face to see the current seal knowing the truth. “The chief witness in Reconstruction, the emancipated slave himself, has been almost barred from court. His written Reconstruction record has been largely DESTROYED AND NEARLY ALWAYS NEGLECTED.”— W.E.B. Du Bois from the book Black Reconstruction ACT We may not can do everything, but we can do something (Rev. Hale's revised quote- see www.caliisme.com ).  If this information was educational, please sign our petition, or call black California assemblymember Dr. Weber's office at: (619) 531-7913 or email her assistant at: Lee.Hernandez@asm.ca.gov to request items 1-6 below,  spread the word via the website and educate your children or  buy a T-shirt that has a new representative seal to show and take pride in your real heritage in the meantime and step into your heritage fashionably.   READ  See  www.caliisme.com/act for 1- why the etymology, origin, and definition of the name “California” is a golden nugget of truth and 2- legal isses in detail
