RE: Stand Together Against Bigotry, Discrimination, Racial Injustice, Police Brutality/Murder

Hell with you. Being a senior has allowed me to witness many things. Greetings from Art McKoy. Thank you for letting me share this message with you. It is not often that I communicate with you, however, make no mistake about it, I love my social media family from the bottom of my heart and I hear you loud and clear. Let me share this important information with you.
Being a senior citizen has allowed me to witness many things. However, in all my years in Cleveland, never have I witnessed Cleveland’s sports figures, athletes take such a conscientious stand on an action as when they took a knee against injustice and racism during the national anthem. The anthem is supposed to stand for justice and equality and those principles have been egregiously violated too many times, especially during the last year.
It took courage for those Browns’ players to take a knee and take a stand. Almost always in the past these highly paid athletes stayed silent in actions and word. Maybe just a social media comment or hash tag once in a while. This time, they took action.
The Browns’ players showed their courage and love for the community. Now, we will show support to them. Come stand with us. Kneel with us as we, the community, show our support. We will have a peaceful protest on Sunday, 10.1.17, beginning at 11 am.
Meet us at Ninth & Lakeside near the Free Stamp. Come early for parking. We are taking our protest to the national level. Thanks to those courageous Browns’ players. Thanks to those who served in the military. We invite you to join us.

I’m looking forward to you all getting together with Mr. Saunders since BBCI has such a great deal to offer.

Candlelight Vigil for Andrew Easley (39)

BLACK ON BLACK CRIME, INC.
SURVIVORS/VICTIMS OF TRAGEDY
BLACK MAN’S ARMY

VIA EMAIL NOTICE TO PRESS
TO: Producers/Editors/Reporters
WHERE: East 110 & Superior, Cleveland, Ohio
WHEN: Wednesday, 7.26.17, 6 pm
RE: Candlelight Vigil for Andrew Easley (39)

The media published great stories about Andrew Easley, a man who gave his life trying to protect others. They talked about the fact that he was a father. That he was a good man. He was respected. He was a frequent bus rider who was going to visit a friend when he was murdered.
Many good things were printed and said but the fact of the matter that still remains is that this man, Andrew Easley, is still laying in the funeral home because his family, led by his 19 year old daughter, has not been able to raise enough money to have Mr. Easley properly buried. The family was told that if the rest of the money is not paid by the end of the week, Mr. Easley will be cremated and his ashes thrown away as an abandoned body. This is cruel!
The fluffy parts of the stories are good but not let’s forget the intricate truth of the sadness that this family faces. Join us as we try to raise enough money to help this family. No family should face the possibility of losing their loved one twice.
We will join his family and friends as they march toward the bus stop at East 110 & Superior where Mr. Easley’s life was abruptly ended. He was a hero who died because he tried to protect and shield other riders from the irrational and abusive actions of another person.
Is this the way to treat a hero? A man who lost his life trying to protect others?

RE: Candlelight Vigil for Michael Chappman (17)

Michael Chappman was a good student and outstanding football player at John Hay High School. He died about two weeks after being shot in the back by a cowardly drive-by shooter. This strong young man and football player struggled hard to survive but in the end succumbed to his wounds and passed away.
What a tragedy. This young man had the potential to be a president and an outstanding man. However, a murderous bullet caught up with him and ended his aspirations for greatness.
These murders are like a devastating plague that is consuming our young people like Michael Chappman far too often.
Please join family, friends and community representatives as we remember Mr. Chappman.

RE: CALLING ON ALL ACTIVISTS

Calling all activists, community leaders, community groups and pastors. If we are truly sincere about stopping the violence and murders, saving our children and making our streets safe, we must have a united front.
Therefore, we are asking everyone to put their differences aside for the betterment of our community. Malcolm X once stated that whatever your religion or ideology we are still Black and still living and still suffering in the Black community together.
I am making a personal plea for everyone to come out and join Pastor Vernon in the casket crusade against violence on:
7.22.17, 3 pm, East Cleveland – Shaw Stadium
7.29.17, 3 pm, Cleveland – East Tech High School Stadium
People are dying. Families are suffering. Let’s save lives. If you have lost someone because of violence or want to save your loved one from violence, you need to come and bring your loved one.

We are praying for our children and families and for an end to the violence.
We will also have a special tribute for retired Judge Jean Murrell Capers, who is now 104 years old. Judge Capers is also affectionately known as the oldest talk show host in America. There will also be a tribute for Dauphne Walker, who has been a local radio personality for over 20 years.
We love both of these special ladies and ask everyone with special memories, pictures or kind words to join us.
