MN NAACP President Uncovers $4 Million In North Minneapolis Scandal


“The Coalition of Black Churches/African American Leadership Summit started off as Operation Resurrection in the early 1990s. From what we can tell, Operation Resurrection still exists today. No one knows who or what it is.

 



 As reported on the Independent Business News Network: 

Poverty pimps, community hustlers and clergy bamboozlers have made a good living off the Black people in Minnesota. I have been writing about this for over three years – still today, a few of you still don’t get what’s going on. Now I have to lay some more information on you. 

Why haven’t we heard anymore about Annshalike Hamilton – found murdered with her body frozen to a cement garage floor; Quincy Smith, former KMOJ DJ tased to death by the Minneapolis Police Department or Ahmed Guled, a Somali man shot more than 13 times on Golden Valley Road by the MPD. We have to ask ourselves, “How did Gregory Washington, the choir director charged with having sex in the church with a minor – travel under the radar for so long? 

Charez Jones, Alisha Neeley – two teenage girls shot dead in the prime of their adolescent lives. 

What about Ira Stafford, brutally beat on a traffic stop by the Minneapolis Police, who said they stopped him because his brake lights were not working – later on we find out from a Fox 9 News investigative report, Mr. Stafford’s brake lights worked fine. 

All the above incidents have one thing in common: Our community “spokespersons” remained silent. 

Like rodeo clowns, the “spokespersons” or people who say they represent the Black community in Minneapolis, Minnesota – are more for show than substance. They have “yielded” in assisting the community, while bowing down to commit acts of “coonery” for the White puppet masters. 

In today’s Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder (March 12, 2010), appears a story titled, “What is the Coalition of Black Churches/African American Leadership Summit,” NAACP President Mr. Booker Hodges tells a true tale of  financial mismanagement and  false representation on the part of the so called Black spokespersons. 

Mr. Hodges spotlights two of the notorious “North side Seven” in a revealing article that leaves readers wondering, 1) “what is the Coalition of Black Churches?” 2) “who are the members of  the African American Leadership Summit?” (Neither Booker or I got the call.) 

Booker weaves a  tale of suspense, drama and investigative reporting better than any mainstream media outlet has done in over 40 years, asking in sum, “Who’s really pimpin the community?” 

In an excerpt from the article, Mr. Hodges writes: 

“The Coalition of Black Churches/African American Leadership Summit started off as Operation Resurrection in the early 1990s. From what we can tell, Operation Resurrection still exists today; I think it operates under the Coalition of Black Churches/African American Leadership Summit. I say “I think” because no one seems to know what the organizational structure of COBC/AALS is. 

The main figures currently associated with this organization are the Reverends Bill English and Randy Staten. According to news accounts, government documents, and grant-maker publications, this organization has received approximately $4-5 million since 1996. This figure again, like the structure of the organization, is vague and unknown, because some funds were given to Operation Resurrection and some to COBC/AALS. 

We contacted all of the churches under the Spokesman-Recorder’s “Service Listing” and asked them if Reverend Staten or Reverend English were pastors at their church or if their church was a member of COBC/AALS. Every one of them who we were able to reach, 90 percent of them, said that neither Staten nor English was a pastor at their congregation, nor were the churches members of COBC/AALS.”
