I hope you saw the Ladonna/Darnell wedding on NBC, lots of
Tuskegeans in the house!!!
That people is what Tuskegee is about, positive, caring, nurturing, loving people who continue to give, the best education and family life of a race of proud people… This was made possibly by so many of you and your votes. Thanks from Tuskegee.
Houston we have a problem. Hey guys,
The opening of the Airmen historic site, Oct. 10th ribbon cutting, rumor has it that the city and county with the highest percentage of democratic voters 87% will have as cutters and guest, Bush-McCain, and Michelle and BarackObama.
All your work and tax dollars will be celebrated by out of Towner’s, a large media force, extra large secret service presence, very large political presence and most Tuskegeans will not get pass the security test, we are going to be used again, so many of you have labored to get this Memorial for these Airmen, including giving up your homes for the runway extensions, only 2 local people employed at the site, very very few items made in Tuskegee in site stores, lots of the construction was local in the first phase, restoration and parking lot, but the new buildings, we were not in there?? We spent 110k in grants to redo square downtown, some with the idea these guest are going to come down, for what??? The Airmen have only given story’s about the hatred from downtown, (1939 to 1947) some never returned to Tuskegee, some went to jail on trumped up charges, Macon County was a dry county and some were chained and put in security off base for alcohol charges that went on their records, some had cars and money taken from them and never returned, some stated that if they could get thru the Tuskegee Flying school, because it was a hard course, 6 out of 10 were washed out, lots of reasons for wash out’s, but most spoke of prejudice, they understood that they had to be 3 times better to be equal to whites, these were the cream of the crop; they wouldremember the hate of Tuskegee forever. As I taped the interviews some would be crying about how they (Officers in the Army Aircorp) were treated by this counntry, even though they were willing to defend and die for America.
Hope you get a seat or catch the ribbon cutting on channel 8, channel 12 has to show murders and shootings first, Tuskegee News will show some drug bust or a dumb shooting in big pictures and The Airmen in a little corner in the back corner of page 6 small letters, that what their editor see’s, it is one way to kill a culture and we will not tell him to stop it, let Tuskegee be the place to show our positive side for the youths self-esteem, oh, I forgot, we don’t care about our children until jail time!!!
