An Interview with Stanley Tookie Williams (Reposted from counterpunch.org)


An Interview with Stanley Tookie Williams

 
Sanley Tookie Williams, co-founder of the Crips street gang in Los Angeles over 30 years ago, is facing execution on December 13. Over the past 12 years, Williams has publicly apologized for his past, written a series of award-winning children’s books to keep kids out of gangs, initiated a Peace Protocol that has led to gang truces in cities such as Newark, New Jersey, and been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. (For more details see “Saving Tookie Williams“.)
On November 25, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger announced that he will hold a hearing on December 8 to consider clemency for Williams. Earlier that day I spoke to Williams by telephone.
SOME PROSECUTORS, police and prison officials have been trying to discredit you by saying that you are still an active gang member. What’s your response?
IT’S QUITE a spurious allegation that these people are putting out. The fact of the matter is that I have a report from the San Quentin Institutional Classification Committee from 2004, which quotes a lieutenant saying that he hadn’t observed anything that was gang-related about me for the past 10 years. It also commended me for 10 years of a positive program.
So it’s quite contradictory for a San Quentin spokesperson-or anyone else, for that matter-to state that I’m still involved in gang activity, when that same person’s superiors say I’ve been programming positively for over 10 years.
SOME OF the same people say that if you were serious about opposing gang violence, you would allow the authorities to “debrief” you on what you know about the Crips. Do you have any inside information that could be used to weaken the Crips or other gangs, and why have you refused to be debriefed?
THE FACT of the matter is that “debriefing” is a euphemism for snitching-telling on people. In my redemptive transition, I vowed to myself not to participate in any kind of violence, or anything that would harm other people, and for me to tell on another person is, in my opinion, harming another individual.
But first and foremost, I have no information.
Secondly, there’s another contradiction with these individuals who continuously promote this claim about me. As it stands, the Departmental Operations Manual clearly states that the only gangs or individuals who will be debriefed are prison gangs. The Crips and the Bloods are not considered prison gangs. Prison gangs are those that were formed and created in the prison.
If I were a gang member, and if there was any iota of data that showed this, I would never have left the hole. I was in there in solitary confinement for close to seven years. And if debriefing was necessary-if it was legal for a street gang-then they would have done that to me then.
THE MEDIA has made much of the fact that you have never apologized to the murder victims’ families in your case-you’ve said that you would rather die than lie about something you didn’t do. Do you have anything you would like to say to the victims’ families?
IF I had the opportunity to talk to talk to any victims’ family members, I would say that I can empathize and I sympathize with their loss of a loved one. I would say the same thing to anyone who has lost a loved one.
However, in regards to me apologizing, it would be wrong of me to apologize for something I didn’t do. I didn’t commit those crimes. I’ve been averring my innocence since day one, and it is the truth. So I cannot apologize for something I didn’t do.
It would be wrong of me. It would be a coward’s act. I would be craven to proclaim guilt for something I didn’t do. And that’s why I say that I’d rather just go on and die than to lie about something that is so untrue.
WHAT MADE you decide to redirect your life and dedicate yourself to helping kids?
I’VE LIVED a pathetic life, and I believe it was education that helped me to change. It was through education that I was able to create common sense and use reasoning. And it was through this that I developed a conscience that led to my redemption.
This is something I feel I was obligated to do as a man, period-to do something that would help youth out there. I feel obligated to try to convince them that the life that they wanted to live or are thinking about living-the so-called thug life, or the gang life, or the criminal life, or the drug life-will ruin their lives forever. I was motivated to do something in my small way-to make a contribution.
SOME PEOPLE out there want to blame you as an individual for pretty much all the gang violence that exists. What do you think are the underlying causes that result in gangs and street crime and violence?
FIRST AND foremost, it’s an impossibility to blame one person for the ills of society. That’s just like Black people trying to blame one white person for slavery and what followed. That would be ridiculous.
But I believe the center of the problem is self-hate, which is a very destructive mechanism that people pick up, because of the conditions not only of society but the morbid mindset of how they look at things.
I believe that this is the motivating factor of gangs. It was to me. That’s why I had no qualms about initiating aggression toward people who looked like me-in other words, toward Black folks. It was a sense of trying to erase or obliterate that which reminded me of myself, in the negative.
WHERE DO you think that self-hate comes from?
IT COMES from conditioning. And when I say conditioning, we’re talking about conditioning that’s propagated not only on television and on the radio, but through encounters with the police department, with people in economic positions and in almost any institution-the prisons, the juvenile halls, the police stations, the youth authorities, etc.
There’s an inveterate form of racialism that exists, and it perpetuates a negative stereotype. These things are out there.
As a youngster growing up, I had the unenviable experience of digesting the most negative stereotypes about Black folks being illiterate, being criminals, being violent, being promiscuous, being indolent, etc. When you’re spoon-fed these things on an incessant basis, you eventually morph into those negative stereotypes, unwittingly. That’s what happened to me. I became the stereotypes that I was spoon-fed.
As far as amending the problems, I believe that education is the key. I know I consistently talk about this, but I believe it, because it’s what woke me up. It was my form of an awakening-though over a period of time, because I’ve never had an epiphany or anything like that. I had to undergo years of battling my demons.
What I did was I picked up parts of the most negative aspects of society, and I built my character, I built my persona. And I became what I built-a monster. That became my identity.
WHAT ACHIEVEMENT in your life are you most proud of?
MY REDEMPTIVE transition-being able to alter myself from one extreme to the other.
If you would have told me 15 years ago that I was going to change my life, that I would write children’s books, that I would be helping thousands upon thousands of children, that I would eventually be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, and that they would eventually make a movie about me, I would have looked at you as if you had lost your mind.
The reason is because, being a Crip, so-called “cripping” was all that I knew. I felt that would be what I would do for the rest of my life. It was all I knew. I felt that was my reason to exist.
So quite naturally, I thought that was how I would die. I would live until a bullet to the back of the brain, or what have you. I never expected to do anything else, because that was my raison d’etre. There was nothing that could penetrate that armor of the gang life at that time.
That’s what I thought-until, to my amazement, something did. What happened was that I was slowly but surely becoming human.
MANY OF the people who are campaigning around your case are opposed to the death penalty in general and are fighting to end it. I wonder if there’s anything you’d like to say to the anti-death penalty movement in this country?
I’M VERY grateful that they exist, for one thing-because as you and I both know, there wasn’t any type of anti-anything for many years.
I’m very grateful that there are people out there who possess the goodness to be willing to help save the lives of many of us they don’t even know. They know nothing about our backgrounds, but yet they know that killing is wrong, and that the death penalty isn’t a deterrent, and it’s not solving any problems.
Throughout this nation, the death penalty population and the overall population within prisons are getting larger and larger. If there were a deterrent effect, then prisons would be empty. We’re talking about over 600 on death row in California alone. If a person can deduce from this that the death penalty is working, then something is wrong with their reasoning.
But the death penalty has become a pawn that politicians use all the time. You have politicians who didn’t used to be supporters of the death penalty, but once they get into the political arena, they alter their position. They become proponents of the death penalty, because that is the zeitgeist of the moment-the politically correct way to be.
Some people can do it. I couldn’t do it. What they’re doing is what many people expect me to do in regards to apologizing for crimes I didn’t commit-just to save my life. Of course I want to live, but not by having to lie.

Dr.SYNQ: Lisa Calderon Assaulted By Toranto Old Navy Employee Is Going To Get Paid!!!

Dr.SYNQ: Lisa Calderon Assaulted By Toranto Old Navy Employee Is Going To Get Paid!!!

Lisa Calderon, of Mississauga, Ontario, correctly uses her cell phone to record her being victimized by white supremacy ( assaulted by an Old Navy staff member) who accused her of stealing a 13 dollar shirt from the store.

Calderon voiced her emotions in a Facebook post stating how “uncomfortable” she was while being at the Toronto store.
“When I was at Brown’s [shoe store] looking for shoes, a staff by the name of Stephanie said she seen that I did not walk into the store with my top on, and they saw it on camera, and that I still had the price tag on it,”
 “She then proceeded to put her hands on me in front of security guard Quesada 10830909.”

Calderon recorded the incident which shows “Stephanie”, the old navy racist suspect grabbing her by the arm and refusing to let go, despite Calderon’s repeated demands to let go.

“If she doesn’t let go of me I’m going to press charges!” she shouts. “Stephanie, I’m going to press charges against you. Let go of my hand.”

“Ma’am, why are you shaking? Are you nervous?” “Stephanie” asks sarcastically.

“Stephanie” told Calderon that store cameras recorded her walking in wearing a different shirt than the one she walked out with.
Working 30 plus years in the security field I can say without a doubt that Old Navy has a lawsuit coming or will be making a settlement because “Stephanie” clearly broke the law. This would be a misdemeanor assault in California. You cannot grab a person for what YOU THINK THEY DID unless it was a felony and you must make a citizens arrest to put your hands on them and in this case it would have made things worst for “Stephanie” whom I immediately knew would lose her job as soon as I saw the video.

Calderon said on FB “Guys I cried cause I never thought in a million years this would happen to me,”
“I would’ve been more calm and understanding if she didn’t accuse me first. I would’ve been happy to show my receipt, especially because I voiced my racial profile complaint to the employee before I left the store. This needs to stop, Stephanie had no Right to aggressively lay her hands on me and accuse me of stealing a $13 dollar top.”

Dr.Francis Cress Welsing Was Killed By Gentrification


Who:
Dr Francis Cress Welsing
Washington DC Board Of Zoning Adjustment
Jewish Primary Day School (JPDS) of Washington DC changed name to Milton Gottesman Jewish Day School Of The Nation’s Capital

Where:
Washington DC at Welsing’s house and JPDS playground

When:
This process started in 2006 and ended with Dr Welsing's death in 2016

How:
attempted gentrification and killed Dr Francis Cress Welsing through the proliferation of noise

What:
Resulted in Dr Welsing’s death on January 2nd 2016

Dr. Francis Cress Welsing was a “Black” female Medical Doctor.
A psychiatrist. After learning the United Independent Compensatory Code (U.I.C.C.S.C.) from its founder, Neely Fuller Jr. She proclaimed that she and all other people classified as “Non-white” were in fact Victims of Racism (White Supremacy).

Best known for her lectures on Racism (White Supremacy) and her book The Isis Papers. She was born Frances Luella Cress in Chicago, Illinois, on March 18, 1935. She was a third-generation physician, starting with her grandfather, her father, and then herself, after receiving her medical degree (M.D.) in psychiatry at Howard University in 1962.

Her mother was a schoolteacher. During her fellowship at Howard in 1967 she received an inner calling to go to what she referred to as a “Black Power Committee meeting

After having many meetings with Neely Fuller, she decided that as a psychiatrist she needed to know why Racism (White Supremacy) was a system. Her hypothesis to that “why” is the Cress Theory Of Color Confrontation which she published in
The Isis Papers. Essentially her theory says that Racism (White Supremacy) is a survival mechanism put in place to prevent what she referred to as White Genetic Annihilation.

Which means removing “White” people from the planet through sexual intercourse with “non-white” people.

“Her theory can be supported by the mantra of the unsophisticated Racists (White Supremacists) aka The White Nationalists and or others who rally for the survival of the so-called “White” Race.”


Dr. Welsing died on Saturday January 2, 2016. 
Gentrification killed Dr. Francis Cress-Welsing and I can prove it based on her own reports plus additional evidence.

I define Gentrification as the unjust removal of one or more “Non-white” people from their habitat in order to make space for one or more “White” people.


BZA case 18400 (regarding Dr Welsing)

On Dr Francis Cress Welsing


Dr. Francis Cress Welsing was a “Black” female Medical Doctor. A psychiatrist to be specific. After learning the United Independent Compensatory Code (U.I.C.C.S.C.) from its founder, Neely Fuller Jr. She proclaimed that she and all other people classified as “Non-white” were in fact Victims of Racism (White Supremacy).

Dr. Welsing said:
“Fuller understood that racism contained the seeds to the origin of counter-racism, the behavior dynamic of liberation for the non-white victims of white supremacy”

“His work led me to question the necessity of the global white collective to evolve such a system of unjust behavior. The result was The Cress Theory of Color Confrontation.”

Dedicating her existence towards countering racism she said that she was the only psychiatrist in the world who had done the kind of work she has done in her fight against Racism/ White Supremacy for over 40 years. She wrote several papers on the subject stating what its victims should do about it.

In 1991 she compiled her papers into one book called The Isis Papers: The Keys to the Colors.
Her work has influenced many and was mentioned in some popular movies. Boomerang and baby boy.

In her last speech given in Sacramento CA she called it her assignment. She spoke just an hour drive away from me. 

Unfortunately, I didn’t find out that she was there until a day or two after.

I was sorely disappointed because I wanted to meet her and exchange constructive information about countering racism. No one to date has gained notoriety in countering racism on the level that she has, not even Mr. Fuller. And his concept is why she wrote her book, did lectures, and interviews.

Some have referred to her as one of our “leaders”. I saw no evidence of her calling herself a “leader”.

I know that she was against anyone deeming her as such because she practiced the U.I.C.C.S.C.

It is in my opinion that she was a signal to those 
 “who have resolved to end this great travesty and bring justice, then peace to planet Earth” (unquote), as stated in her work THE ISIS PAPERS: The Keys to the Colors.

She was a signal because she pointed out observations that can help us get a better understanding of what Racism (White Supremacy) is and how it works. That must be the assignment of the majority of us who are dedicated towards replacing white supremacy with justice.

Dr. Welsing said “Black people in the US must dissect and analyze [Racism/White Supremacy] to the core. With this knowledge (produced in her book), black people can take the necessary steps to eliminate the problem.”


My assignment is to motivate you to honor her by studying her work and laboring to implement solutions that will eliminate the injustices of this world.

You should labor to make more works, based on the united-independent concept. You will honor her by making your own work produced from dissecting and analyzing [Racism/White Supremacy] “to the core.”


It is my theory that if we have at least eight million victims of white supremacy doing this in the so-called United States that we can Ultimately, end Racism (White Supremacy) in this world by replacing it with Justice. This in not a joke. We need eight million “Black” people to think, speak, and/or act in countering racism until it is replaced with justice.


Do yourself a big favor and buy this book to help you learn more about what Racism (White Supremacy) is and how it works by getting Dr Welsing's book! She spent 49 years trying to wake other victims of white supremacy up to the system of white supremacy so that we can learn to Replace White Supremacy With Justice. She dedicated her existence to this and so should you if you're sick and tired of being sick and tired of Racism (White Supremacy).
