Author will discuss new book on blacks in Vallejo
http://www.dailyrepublic.com/news/fairfield/a...

Sharon McGriff-Payne, a lifelong resident of Vallejo, will discuss her new book,“African Americans in Vallejo,” from 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesday in the Becker Balmer meeting room of the Fairfield Civic Center Library, 1150 Kentucky St.

Her previous work,“John Grider’s Century – African Americans in Solano, Napa, and Sonoma Counties from 1845 to 1925,” explored early black pioneers who settled in Northern California, leading the way for blacks who would follow in the 20th century.

The new book boasts more than 200 vintage images and talks about how blacks have been part of Vallejo for more than 150 years. The book is published by Arcadia Publishing and can be purchased at area bookstore.

Does it label all the armed robbers as " victims"? How about the rapists and feral kids?

Is it a history of how blacks ruined Vallejo?

YES, Vallejo Blacks will be watching Dr. Ben Carson's national Republican candidacy VERY closely. Dr. Carson... Republican, articulate, highly-educated, white collar, cool, calm, neurosurgeon, is the kind of 21st century role model Black America needs at this time. Looking at Dr. Carson's innovative neurosurgery techniques while at John Hopkins University, university students had to study them and were graded if they wanted to pass their medical class. Current White Hut occupant Obama never had such an honor (community organizer & college transcripts sealed). Dr. Carson will be preaching education and achievement for Blacks in the white collar world. That is the message Vallejo Blacks will be pitching for Vallejo 2016 election cycle. White Collar jobs and higher education equals repect. Dr. Carson understood that; Vallejo Blacks will understand it when Dr. Carson comes to California.

IF Dr. Carson agrees to it, a nice little side trip to TouroU on MI for a speaking engagement would be the absolute coup d'etat for Vallejo Blacks and that school. TouroU medical students will be going gaga and bug-eyed at the sight of a highly respected medical professional addressing staff, students and invited guests, in a conversation about his life story and presidential candidacy. No doubt Vallejo Mayor Osby Davis, VCUSD Ramona Bishop, prominent Vallejo Blacks, and others in the Vallejo Black community, will be beating down the door to get a glimpse of and a photo op of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to stand next to the man who did John Hopkins University -- "considered one of the world’s top universities throughout its history" (Wikipedia). The prominent Vallejo Black person who is brave enough to successfully invite Dr. Carson to Vallejo will be remembered for permanently changing the way Vallejo Blacks think of themselves ... dreaming about higher education and white-collar careers for themselves and Vallejo.

Remember, Vallejo Blacks are 25% of city population and went 0-for-4 in last two elections. They are desperate to eclipse VIBers and Fil-Am power block in 2016 elections. Desperate times produces desperate measures. They will not trust John Riley or any other non-Black this time around. The Vallejo Black who successfully gets Dr Carson on board for TouroU will be remembered. National Blacks know certain issues affect them directly -- Planned Parenthood, illegal immigration, border security, job outsourcing and HI-B visas. This is not about party affiliation, this is about ethnic survival. No way that prominent Vallejo Blacks let something like a potential Dr. Carson visit to TouroU slip past them this election cycle.

Keep it up. The ignorance is showing. Here's something for you to consider ......

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/sep/...

Mr. Carson said he is an admirer of the late A.G. Gaston, a businessman in Birmingham, Alabama, who made millions of dollars that he used to help fund the civil rights movement. Gaston said his influence stemmed from his economic power.“I think he has a very good point. It’s something that black America needs to understand,” Mr. Carson said.“Jewish America understands it. Korean America understands it. Black America, if they could understand it, they could blow everybody else out of the water.”
