FRANKLY SPEAKINGLETTER TO EDITORGUEST WRITERCOLMUNIST
POLITICIANS BUILD PUBLIC LIES ARE USED IN MAKING PUBLICY COMPENSATE THOSE WHO ARE HURT!!!!
Thank God! it is finally of public notice that FAMU was always in the Black financially (e. g. Florida Board of Governors; flbog.org, FAMU Banking records, Capital City Bank, Individual Books kept by various FAMU funding sources) . Therefore, all loyal and patriotic FAMUans are asking how can we rationalize in the face of this lie: 1.the acceptance of so many good Black professionals careers being terminated? 2.the loss of so many Black students at FAMU, who had their funding in hand and needed only a chance to attend the university of their choice. FAMU? 3.The termination of so many useful extra curicuirilar activities and sports? It is reported in 2003 and 2004 that FAMU was never in the red financially but was suffering from the existence of booking keeping using a variety of acceptable but non-uniform recording processes. This past week a source/person, who worked at the bank where the FAMU had their accounts described the state of FAMU’s bookkeeping as full of a variety of acceptable reporting that lack a “uniform format.” It seems that upon receiving FAMU’s individual uncombined accounting books from the various sources the bank declared a FAMU period and placed the banks staff on combining these individual and differently kept books into a “uniform format” for the purpose of reporting the required status. The bank found that although FAMU’s books were not of a “singular uniform format,” however they were easily translated into a uniform document which always demonstrated that the university was most always in the Black!! Yes, FAMU was never in deficit and some people, who were politicizing this as FAMU’s problem knew this. The FAMU budget was made a political issue, couched in a deliberate statement of a lie without a position of plausible deniability!! But they chose to use this public perception for their political objectives and the professional gains of some Blacks who were opportunists of the lowest kind. Once again a “Patty (e. g. White man)” made a “Patsy (e. g.. Fall guy)” out of an ambitious Black Opportunist!! The public in general and Blacks in particular have been “pimped” again!! This objective to make decisions using the leverage of “saving FAMU from financial disaster” was used to remove staff, who were not friends and appoint some friends, who were in better times unqualified and undeserving. It is the time now for the Governor, The FAMU Board of Trustees, and FAMU’s CEO to financially compensate those who were harmed without cause. The university was always in the Black-there were no WMD-Social Security is not in eminent danger-G. W. Stole Presidential election 2000 and 2004. etc. One case of particular interest was the firming of FAMU’s coach, Billy Joe. Without cause and framed in unsustainable rhetoric Bill Joe was released at a most inopportune time in a football season. This resulted in the unnecessary problems the team had in training for the up-coming season Billy Joe was however, vindicated by the Football Association and will probably receive financial compensation for his mistreatment. However, what compensation will the terminated leadership staff receive? And how can their careers really be retrieved. Their firing did not and could not have done any good toward balancing FAMU’s budget seeing as how there was no deficit in the first place. Further, Iraq had no WMD, and G. W. Bush stole Presidential election 2000 and 2005, and Social Security is not in eminent danger! Finally, what compensation will the FAMU student who were turned away receive. How much damage has been done to their already soft self-concept and willingness to try to attend am institution of higher learning? A Special Independent Prosecutor must now investigate this political lie that caused harm to FAMU employees and indict them for making the political statement that FAMU budget was not balanced base in the lie that FAMU presently was not in the Black!
