Harlem Sellout King-Daddy Charles Rangel

Yes, we have black sellouts among North American Africans. US Congressman Charles Rangel is one of the best--studying his history as king of Harlem, we can understand the type of Africans who put us on the slave ships. m

11:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Adam Clayton Powell State Office Building
163 West 125th & Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd (7th Ave.)

Congressman Charles Rangel’s “very special event” to honor Senator Hillary Clinton on October 27th is an insult to the people of Harlem whom he has sold out for decades. “Hillary’s homecoming: 100 Days ‘til Victory in New York” stands in stark contrast to the “homelessness coming” for thousands of Harlem tenants at risk because of unprecedented gentrification sweeping through the world’s most famous historic Black community. Rangel supports the expansion of Columbia University that will displace thousands of families in West Harlem. He was shamed by the community into helping over a dozen local Black businesses facing eviction on the Frederick Douglass Blvd. business corridor from 125th to 126th Streets. Under Rangel’s tutelage the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone doled out millions of public dollars to major corporations while ignoring the plight of local small businesses. Harlem continues to be plagued with high unemployment, growing homelessness, unbridled police brutality, and devastating rates of incarceration. We need folks on the street on Saturday to give Rangel and the rest of the political honchos a reality check!

“War Queen” Hillary Clinton has no shame whatsoever! In 2002 she voted for Bush’s “war for oil” in Iraq. Clinton voted for the repressive Patriot Act and its reauthorization in 2006. And in 2007 she was the only Democratic contender who voted for a senate resolution denouncing the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization (the unit is part of Iran's army), a move to give Bush the green light to wage war against Iran. Since Sept. of 2007 the US has spend $456 billion dollars for the Iraqi War. Over 3,500 soldiers have been killed and the Lancet Medical journal estimates over 650,000 Iraqi deaths as a result of the war.
