CLEVELANDURBANNEWS.COM- WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur,

a Toledo Democrat whose 9th congressional district extends to Cleveland, on Wednesday, joined ranking member of the Financial Services Committee, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, a California Democrat, to introduce the Megabanks Accountability and Consequences Act. READ A DETAILED SUMMARY OF THE BILL BY CLICKING HERE


The bill empowers the federal banking oversight bodies to wind down megabanks that have engaged in repeated violations of the law and harmed consumers.


"The American people have been asking congress to step up and rein in abusive megabanks that thwart our laws in order to make a quick profit on the backs of the American people," said Kaptur in a press release to Clevelandurbannews.com and Kathywraycolemanonlinenewsblog.com, Ohio's most read Black digital newspaper and Black blog. "I am proud to join ranking member Waters and stand up for ordinary people who are fed up with the abuses of these big banks who were complicit in the 2008 economic crisis that ravaged our economy."


The longest serving woman in congress and a House of Representatives member since 1983, Kaptur said the bill has real teeth, including federal banking oversight parameters, and the ability to "shut down banks that engage in illegal abuse."

 

It would also subject officers of scandal-ridden big banks and mortage companies like Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase Bank and Bank of America to civil and criminal penalities.


In order to become law the bill must pass both chambers of congress and, absent a successful veto, secure the signature of President Trump, a corporate-leaning Republican who edged Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to win the presidency last November.


Waters, who is the longest serving Black woman in congress, has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, whom she says is racist, and needs to be impeached. The federal legislator out of Los Angeles spoke to a packed audience of Black leaders and elected officials and community activists in May at G-Lancer on the 21 on the east side of Cleveland and urged them to take to the streets relative to Trump's policies, an event where she was introduced by Cleveland activist and journalist Kathy Wray Coleman, who edits Clevelandurbannews.com and

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-WASHINGTON, D.C.-Thousands of Black

women and their supporters marched on Washington, D.C. on Saturday,  a march led by Black women and sponsored by the Black Women’s Blueprint, Black Youth Project 100 and Trans Sisters of Color Project.


Black female victims of violence, punctuated by a chant of “Say her name!” were cited as women linked arms in solidarity.


President Donald Trump did not escape scrutiny, the Black women saying that Trump's policies are disenfranchising Black women and the Black community, and erasing decades of Civil Rights gains.


A separate rally dubbed a March for Racial Justice was also held that morning, the two groups then marching in solidarity to Lincoln Park on Capitol Hill, and then to the Justice Department and to the National Mall.


More than 20 related marches for racial justice were scheduled to take place around the country, the Black women's march held separately because their leaders said issues impacting Black women must be addressed, and in an independent manner.

“It’s difficult getting the issues specific to black women and girls centered within the racial justice movement of this nation,” Farah Tanis, the co-founder and co-executive director of the Black Women’s Blueprint, told The Root.


“Also, 50 to 60 percent of black girls are sexually assaulted, but people have a hard time believing this even though they know historically, we have endured rape and have been enforced to endure generations of rape,” she continued. “Black kids are born to poor black mothers. How do you not see that as a racial-justice issue?”


More than 77,000 Black women and girls are missing in the United States, data show.


And statistics are alarming in practically every arena that reveal that Black women and girls remain at risk in comparison to White women and girls, from mass incarceration to education, job inequality, malicious prosecution, police brutality, healthcare, murder, rape, and other heinous crimes of violence. And the list goes on.

LEADER IN BLACK DIGITAL NEWS.

 

By Kathy Wray Coleman, editor-in-chief

 

LAS VEGAS, Nevada-Legendary former pro football Hall of Famer O.J. Simpson was released from prison on parole early Sunday morning after serving nine years of a nine -to-33-year sentence for kidnapping and robbery, a sentenced handed down in 2008 and viewed by some, mainly Blacks, as excessive and pay back for his acquittal as a Black man in 1995 on charges he gruesomely murdered White ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, 35, and her associate, Ronald Goldman, 25, who was Jewish but could pass for White.

According to public records, Simpson will reside in a gated community at a friend's home in Las Vegas.

 

The robbery and kidnapping case was far different than the football legend's infamous trial in the 90s when he was 48, and still good looking, and accused of stabbing Brown Simpson and Goldman to death in 1994 at her Brentwood, Los Angeles home.


Simpson, 70, won his celebrated capital murder case, which further divided America along racial lines, in a California courtroom, a not guilty verdict rendered by a majority Black jury after then Los Angeles detective Mark Furhman was called out on the stand for tainting evidence and using the N-word.


He won with the late Johnny Cochran as his lawyer, and via a legal team, led by Cochran, that was famously dubbed "the dream team."

The brilliant Cochran, famous for winning record breaking excessive force and police brutality lawsuits against Los Angeles police and the city, died of of a brain tumor in 2005.

 

The motive for the killings, said prosecutors at trial, was jealousy.


Simpson claimed he was innocent, and the jury agreed.


With a pair of gloves that Simpson was accused by the prosecution of wearing to commit the murders as the focal point, gloves that would not fit Simpson's hands during a defense demonstration at trial during testimony by Simpson, coupled with Cochran's famous words to the jury that "if it don't fit acquit," Cochran won Simpson's freedom from conviction on double murder charges with penalties that carried a death sentence.


Hardly could he imagine, though, that his famous client would later score nine years in prison, in part because of backlash relative to an unrelated criminal case that he helped him win decades earlier.


What a difference a lawyer makes.


Following his acquittal, Simpson lost a $33 million wrongful death civil judgment to the families of Brown Simpson and Goldman,


Some pundits say the once arrogant Simpson could never overcome the stigma of charges he murdered his White ex-wife and Goldman, Simpson adding fuel to the fire by continuing to date White women after his 1995 acquittal, which became his undoing in a racially divided country where racism is still alive and and bi-racial marriage is not yet as acceptable as one might expect.

And Cochran was dead and long gone when Simpson met his fate nine years ago before a majority White and largely female 12-member jury in a Las Vegas courtroom on the robbery and kidnapping charges, charges stemming from a 2007 confrontation with a memorabilia dealer that Simpson said was scamming him, Simpson the ring leader but not the one with the gun used for intimidation, the other defendants, all part of his entourage the day the crimes were committed, taking plea deals to avoid prison in exchange for turning evidence for the state against Simpson.

Though he did not testify in that case he said at a later hearing that he went to "go get his stuff," and that his defense attorney, Yale Galanter, allegedly did not tell him of a plea deal.


Simpson won the Heisman Trophy as a ballplayer at college at USC.

 

He played most of his 10-year NFL career with the Buffalo Bills after being drafted in the first round in 1969 and was traded to the San Francisco 49ers in his hometown toward the end of his career, where he played for two more years.


He went to the Pro Bowl five times, and was the NFL's most valuable player in 1973.


When he retired from the pro-football league in 1979 he was second on the NFL's all time rushing list, and is now at 22, behind 21 others, including Emmett Smith, who holds first place, and Walter, who follows in second place.


His good looks brought him lucrative post-NFL advertising contracts with companies such Hertz Rent a Car, and stunts as a C-list actor.


Simpson has four grown children, two of them, Arnelle and Jason, with first wife Marguerite Simpson, who was Black and his high school sweetheart, and two, Sydneey and Justin, with Brown Simpson, whom he met when she was a waitress.


A fifth child, Aaren, whom he had with Marguerite, died in 1979 at two-years-old in the family's swimming pool.

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio -The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections, on Thursday, denied an official request by Una HR Keenon, who served as municipal judge and school board president and was the runner-up in the Democratic mayoral election primary in East Cleveland this month to Mayor Brandon King, for her name to be placed on the November ballot, in spite of a city charter provision that requires that "the two candidates each receiving the most votes cast in the primary election shall proceed to a runoff election" remains in the charter."


Keenon and her attorney say the aforementioned language mandates that the top two vote-getters in the primary, regardless of partisanship, such as Democrat or Republican, are to advance to the November general election.


East Cleveland is a 95 percent Black impoverished suburb of Cleveland with roughly 18,000 residents.


The elections board, led by Chairwoman Inajo Davis Chappell, an attorney, rejected Keenon's arguments saying another provision in the charter, per an amendment in 2002, changed previous non-partisan elections in  city to partisan.

How the board of elections decided which position to choose among the conflicting city charter provisions is not clear.


Also a licensed attorney, Keenon, and her attorney, Angela Bennett, said Thursday that the charter language makes it clear that Keenon should be on the November ballot after coming in second in the primary election, and that Keenon will sue.

East Cleveland law director Willa Hemmons, who reports to Mayor King and is an at will employee chosen by the mayor, lobbied against Keenon to the board of elections.  It voted Thursday to certify the results of the Sept 12 primary election

Keenon, who is endorsed by 11th Congressional District Congresswoman Marcia Fudge and the county Democratic party, among others, lost to King in the primary election , 33 percent to his 44 percent out of four Democratic candidates on the ballot, also including former councilman Mansell Baker, and Dana Hawkins Jr.


King will face Green Party candidate and community activist Devin Branch in November.


The outcome in East Cleveland may dictate a pending proposed merger with Cleveland promoted by the establishment and the Plain Dealer Newspaper, among others, a merger that  proponents say is necessary to rescue the nearly bankrupt East Cleveland from despair.


Opponents of the merger, including East Cleveland councilpersons Nathaniel Martin and Barbara Thomas, who supported Keenon, and Keenon herself, argue that East Cleveland should maintain its autonomy from Cleveland, a city with a population of about 385,000 people.


Both Cleveland and East Cleveland are Democratic strongholds in the heavily Democratic Cuyahoga County that is roughly 29 percent Black and the second largest of 88 counties statewide, behind Franklin County, which includes the capital city of Columbus, Ohio's largest city, followed by Cleveland.

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-Cleveland, Ohio - Expanding and enhancing his campaign for the final weeks leading up to the Nov. 7 general election, where he will face Ward 2 Councilman Zack Reed in a non-partisan runoff, Cleveland Mayor Frank G. Jackson has named key additions to his campaign's leadership team, including a new campaign manager.


Michael Bowen, who is Black and 30-years-old, has been named campaign manager and will oversee day-to-day operations Jackson, a three term Black mayor seeking an unprecedented fourth term, announced to staffers at his campaign headquarters on Carnegie Avenue in Cleveland on Thursday morning.


In addition, Mayor Jackson announced that R Strategy Group will lead campaign strategy initiatives, and communications.


Firm vice president Jon Benedict will serve as chief strategist and work with Jeff Rusnak, R Strategy Group's president and CEO, on media and other communication, and with vice president Kathy Berta on field outreach and volunteer activities.


Both Reed, who is also Black and has served 16 years on city council, and Jackson, a city council president turned mayor, are Democrats.


"We are very excited to join this great team and help ensure Mayor Jackson's re-election," Bowen said . "Cleveland has momentum today, and that's thanks in large part to Mayor Jackson's leadership."


Bowen said that "there is so much at stake in this election, and we have to continue the progress achieved under Mayor Jackson."


An attorney with the powerful law firm of Taft, Stettinius & Hollister who will take a temporary leave from his law practice to lead Jackson's campaign, Bowen worked formerly for former Democratic Lakewood mayor Ed FitzGerald, who is also a former Cuyahoga County executive who lost a bid for governor in 2014 to John Kasich, a 2016 unsuccessful candidate for the Republican nomination for president.  And he assisted campaigns for his mother, the late Lynn Ruffner, a Shaker Heights councilwoman who died in 2014, and since ousted Cuyahoga and County Prosecutor Tim McGinty, a former common pleas judge who lost a Democratic primary for reelection to current county prosecutor Michael O'Malley in 2016. He was a field director for the May 2015 renewal of the county’s Arts & Cultural Levy, which passed with 73 percent of the vote.


The mayor's former campaign manager, Wayne Clark of  the state of Maryland, who is also Black and led Jackson to a 39 percent victory among eight challengers relative to the Sept 12 non-partisan primary, will remain as part of his campaign team as a consultant when needed, Jackson said Thto ursday.


"I want to thank Mr. Clarke for his efforts build this campaign and to help win the primary election," Jackson said. "We are expanding our campaign team to ensure that we have the energetic leadership to take the campaign to the next level. I believe that this team will take us to victory in November."


The shake-up in the mayor's campaign team comes with the Nov. 7 general election just five weeks away.


And though Jackson finished the primary with roughly 39 percent of the vote, and Reed with a distant 22 percent, 61 percent of voters chose somebody other than Jackson, and 78 percent chose a candidate other than Reed, who, this week, named Kevin Jones, a senior account executive with Stern advertising, as his new campaign manager to replace Angela Shute Woodson.

 

Jones is Black, and a key organizer of Reed's annual family Unity in the Park concert and festival at Luke Easter Park on the city's largely Black east side.
