Mr. Charlie’s World.
Promote Martin Luther King County and repair the Village.
I am at a point in my life where I will try anything to get our community re-organized. I have felt since I was 15 watching dogs bite kids my age on TV, that I was created to do one thing and that is no organize my race. Now at 66 I have over 50 years at this and I am still learning.
Nothing has changed over the years except a greater awareness of just how difficult this job is and a greater appreciation of our unique a racial group I am dealing with. We are a collection of dozens of Native American and African tribal nations all mixed up in us. We are the fastest the strongest and the most talented group of people in this nation and maybe the world.
But we lack a cohesive focus a plan and direction for us as individuals and as a group. But unlike our European Americans we don’t operate well as individuals. We are a tribal people whether you lean toward the Native American or African side of the spectrum, which means that we create our individual agenda after we create the tribal agenda. So when we don’t have a group or tribal agenda we flounder and do more to harm each than to help each other.
That is why I created a go fund me page to raise 15,000 to print the legend Martin Luther King County on Tee shirt Hats and cups. We are the only county named after any Black man and yet few outside of the county and many inside don’t even know it exist. 50% of the profits from the items we sell are intended to handle several items that many of you have mentioned to me over the years.
(1) Create a Black community Float for the Sea Fair Parade for the first time in 35 years.
(2) Finish up the martin Luther King Park with Bathroom and a Parking lot.
(3) Create a 5013c social service organization in King County to replace CAMP so I am suggesting (MLK-CAMP) which is Martin Luther King County Advocacy and Motivation Program.
I consider this a fairly modest agenda but it is one that we as a tribal people can come together on and get done. It starts with you going to the Go Fund me page and making a small donation to this cause. I will make sure I am transparent on the money collected or spent because I know how important that is to future effort similar to this. We have been burnt before.
Why do I think we can do all of this from selling tee shirt hats and cups? It is because we are selling them nationally and internationally. The name martin Luther King County will make most people pause for a second and many will buy at least one item if offered s a novelty item.
If we sell 1 item to 1 million of the 60 million Black people in America we will have enough money to do everything we are talking about and more. We intend to sell at every Black National convention and hopefully convince the food and wine industry to work with us to introduce Washington produce in our hospitality suites and introduce many of those people to African American employees. We will sell Martin Luther King County as a entry and exit point for the State of Washington.
Am I dreaming maybe..When we occupied Coleman school it was a dream but now we have a museum. When I proposed building the Martin Luther King Memorial Park it was a farfetched dream but we raised the money and built the second largest Memorial Park for Martin Luther King in the Nation in Martin Luther King County.
So I have learned that you just go on faith, trust the Village, lay out a plan and invite people to participate. Sometimes you are called a fool and sometimes a genius but no one has ever accused me of a refusal to take some action. I hope you join me in this campaign ,https://www.gofundme.com/martin-luther-king-county and you will see the beautiful designed created by legendary Seattle Graphic Artist Al Doggett. Or go to my face book page and take a look.
Let’s take care of business because the county loses its value if no one knows it exist. Let change that and rebuild our extended Village. The tribe is in pain.
