Driving While Black






Driving while Black is a term that many Afrikans have become accustomed to because the designation DWB implies that you don't have to be doing anything wrong when you're stopped by the cops. All you have to be is "Black" and driving an expensive car. You can be "Black" and driving through a White neighborhood. You can be "young and Black" and be stopped for nothing. You can just be driving at a late hour and be guilty of Driving while "Black". Being Black means that you will be stopped and harassed simply because you are targeted by cops across this nation as being proned to commit criminal acts.

Also look at history.

Re: Driving While Black


My family and I were victims of targeting by a corrupt cop in Bolingbrook, IL. We were driving along one day and all the cars were in bumper to bumper traffic. This cop named Richard Moles, had his lights flashing, making a turn off the street we were approaching, at the intersection. He was going in the opposite direction and when he recognized our car and our complexion, he made a U-turn and blocked traffic that was proceeding both ways.
When he got behind us, my 2 daughters looked at me in shock. I can't write what my queen said about him but it was clear that this cop was racist. This corrupt cop had the nerve to come to our car and tell us that we were speeding in bumper to bumper traffic. I was so angry that I got out of the vehicle and went to a truck that was behind the police car and talked to the driver who had been detained also by this crooked cop. To make a long story short, he gave the guy in the truck and me a ticket. He claimed we were both doing the same speed in bumper-to- bumper traffic. The other driver was a Latino male and I was Afrikan. I wrote a letter to the chief of police and never got a reply.

Re: Driving While Black


I decided that I would go to court and fight this illegal citation. On the day of the bench trial the judge didn't want to hear my side of the story, nor see my evidence. He told me in clear english that "my job is to protect the police." I was outraged and the court told me that I couldn't appeal the ticket unless I paid the fine. I was sickened by all of this but I was determined to find a fair person within this system. Being as smart as I was, I had anticipated an unfair verdict so I had filed a federal lawsuit against the Chief of Police, & Richard Moles, and the Bolingbrook Police Department. Upon hearing the verdict from this corrupt judge, I served Officer Richard Moles with a summons to appear in federal court on a civil rights violation and the cop looked at me with a puzzled frown on his face. I knew it would be a hard battle to win but my I was willing to fight these racists on their own territory. The respect for myself as a decorated veteran compelled me to take a bold stand against this type of injustice.

In regards to my case in traffic court, I had to appeal the decision of the fine to the 3rd District of Illinois. My family and I didn't find a fair person in the whole system. The upper court upheld my traffic violation conviction because they lost the transcripts of my proceedings at the lower court level. But our federal case was still being fought vigorously by my queen and I!

Re: Driving While Black


The first time we appeared in federal court, we felt like we were in the lion's den. We had an eerie feeling that we were about to be crucified for standing up against the police department in Bolingbrook. Everybody in federal court was Caucasian! My queen and I were representing ourselves and the police department had sent a lawyer to represent them who looked like a midget with big ears. The judge was irate that my case was in his court. He yelled at the Bolingbrook Department's lawyer and asked, "can’t your clients handle things down there without having this case in my courtroom?" The midget lawyer just smiled and told the judge that he wanted to contest the fact that I had served a police officer a summons in an open courtroom in front of witnesses. The judge didn't want to hear about this technicality. He stated "didn't your client receive the summons?" The midget lawyer
said “yes.” Then the judge replied "well ,consider yourself properly served!" I was smiling because I felt a sense of power for the moment. We were actually forcing the system to work for us but this good feeling didn’t last long.

Just to show you how quickly attitudes changed in regards to our case, the judge dismissed the case stating that it was not properly served to the police department. We were upset that once again we had been denied an opportunity to be heard. But that setback didn't stop us because we immediately filed another lawsuit and I mailed it to the defendants (the Police Department) by certified mail with a return receipt requested.

Officer Richard Moles refused to pick up his mail at the post office so I had a relative and a friend deliver the summons to the police station. Being properly served with legal papers was no longer an issue.

The next time we appeared in federal court, the Bolingbrook Police Department had hired another legal firm. The same judge was assigned our case and once again he was irritated that we were in his courtroom trying to have our case heard. He scolded the new lawyer because the proper paperwork was not filed but he still allowed him to represent those polished hoodlums from Bolingbrook, Illinois.

This case was a tricky one because we were up against a powerful police department and believe me when I say we were harassed in many ways by them. Everytime a cop saw me driving in Bolingbrook they would follow me until my family and I reached our destination within town. They never stopped us, but the fact that we were being followed by cops all the time was nerve racking.

I would document the incident and mail it to the Justice Department in Washington D.C. I never received any reply from the Justice Department, but I felt it was my duty to inform them of corrupt practices in Illinois where law-abiding citizens were being harassed.

There was no limit to how many cops were in on the harassment because they were all working together. To show you just how ridiculous their harassment was, I had a ticket slid under my front door by a cop for putting my old refrigerator outside to be picked up by the sanitation workers. The ticket claimed that I had failed to tear the front door off of the refrigerator before putting it outside. What the ticket failed to mention was the fact that the refrigerator was still in a big box until some stranger removed it from the box.
When I went to the police station I was livid and I wanted to know why I had to pay a $500 fine for putting a refrigerator outside to be picked up? The desk officer claimed that children could crawl inside the refrigerator and smother to death. I told her that it was in a box (until someone took the box), so no child could crawl into it. The ticket was dropped but the harassment continued. My queen and I would get up early in the morning around 5:00 am and we would see a police car parked in front of our house on several occasions. When I would go outside, the
policeman would drive off. This happened at least 5 times.

The police had began to follow me all the time when I was going to work and when I documented the incident, I would mail the incident report to the Justice Department, and every other Black organization I could think of at that time.

Re: Driving While Black


One day I received a call from the Lawyer's Committee for Civil Rights under the Law and I spoke with a lawyer about my family's plight. This lawyer assured me that she would look into the matter and she would get back to me to tell me if I had a solid case. This lawyer, whom first name is Sharon, had referred my case to the Chicago Branch of their office and once the White supervisor got the information, the case was deemed unworthy of legal effort by the Chicago office. Needless to say, I was disappointed once again because no one would help me and my family. I had spent thousands of dollars fighting these polished hoodlums and I was more frustrated than I'd ever been before. The system, at this point, was just as corrupt as the cops who harassed my family and I.

Getting back to the federal case, I found out that the police department had hired yet another legal firm to represent them and they had about 4 lawyers working on this case. I was really upset that this new firm was ready to waste my time by adding more lawyers to frustrate my efforts to receive justice. I thought to myself "there was no human decency left in the world."

My Queen and I were tired of fighting legal battles but we were determined to put our brains to the test, even though we had never been to law school. We figured that we were smart enough to read the law and understand it just about as good an anyone else. We were right! We could do a good job representing ourselves. We were wrong to think that the system would be fair to an Afrikan family who were representing themselves in their court of law.

After reading this essay, I hope that many of you will realize that we live in a unfair nation. What I mean by unfair is the fact that this nation destroys human lives by allowing criminals to flourish in authoritative positions. The Police Departments across the nation is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to corruption. The real crooks are the politicians, the military, the prison complex, and corporate America.

There are people who would argue with the preceding paragraph because they feel that the African-American have received rights that no other group have. Well, that statement is a cruel hoax. The sad fact is that Blacks are targeted for slaughter, imprisonment, and abused by a system that has never been fair to us collectively. Also, present day national Black leaders are not reaching the hearts and minds of our young people and that is why many of them are rebelling against this hypocritical system. Most important is the fact that the U.S. government and many of its constituents are bereft of compassion. They have lost their credibility with most Blacks that I encounter. Many Blacks don’t believe that their so-called rights are protected in this nation at this present time.

Some would say that it's not the government but the people who run the government. They would also say that it's not just whites but many ethnicities that are participants in this mean spirited national onslaught of citizen's rights. I would have to agree with that (to a certain extent) because I have been victimized by so-called Afrikan people too. It appears that moral corruption knows no special color. It can infect anyone who is greedy, selfish, and incompassionate.

I have chosen to focus on White Supremacy as an overriding factor because it is responsible for the systematic oppression and degradation of the African-American (aka Black people). There maybe some black faces that operate like trained dogs within white supremacy's framework, but the true shot callers in this powerful and demonic system are Caucasian.

We really need to clean house when it comes to corrupt elements within governmental agencies. My question is: Where are the brave souls that will stand up for justice in this nation? Who knows? Being the way things are in this corrupt nation, ALL OF US could be setup by corrupt police officers.

Re: Driving While Black


WE GOT SOME PEOPLE WHO ARE TECHNOLOGICAL, WITH NO HUMAN SOUL—NO LOVE, NO SPIRIT! Who, ultimately, are deadly and whose continued rule ultimately represents the death of the EARTH!

We're made to think that it's the "criminal black male" that is the threat to the world. 10,000 black muggers, killers, sellers of dope, etc., can't do to this earth what so-called civilized, sane white men have done and would do. For the greatest threat to life on earth itself . . . is the white male. Who has dedicated their whole treasury, raped and robbed the earth of its wealth, created starvation and deprivation in order to invest in the creation of DEATH MACHINES: VAST ARMIES with VAST CHEMICAL and GERM WARFARE SYSTEMS so as to DESTROY PEOPLE BY THE MILLIONS and perhaps to DESTROY LIFE ITSELF!

Yet, we've some Africans who see Europeans as someone to be emulated, lived with and used as a measure of sanity, and also see as their ultimate goal as sleeping, marrying and being a part of their society. You must recognize that if you hold your own life, the life of your loved ones and life on earth dear, you must bring an end to the rulership of this earth by white males. It's in your own self-preservative interest to do so.
