Important information you need to know about the
2021 California Gubernatorial Recall Election —
It was rigged from the beginning!
On the night of June 28, 2021, at 10:45 P.M., Governor Gavin Newsom knowingly and illegally signed the recall appropriation bill SB-152, CHAPTER 34, into law for his own recall election, and for his own benefit —that’s illegal under the California Constitution! (Cal. Const., art. II, § 17). The fraudulently signed recall bill by Governor Newsom expires January 1, 2022, in 67 days of this posting.
This is a fact: Under the California Elections Code – ELEC § 18002, and subdivision (h) of Section 1170 of the California penal code, Governor Gavin Newsom, perpetrated a conspiracy to commit election fraud. And in furtherance of that conspiracy, he did in fact, perpetrate election fraud on the people of California and all of the California military servicemembers serving abroad and, overseas voters. —which is a federal crime— 22 million counts of mail fraud come to mine. See Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act ( 52 U.S.C. Sec. 20301 et seq.)
To mount an effective winning recall of Gov. Gavin Newsom, we must go back to when he was the 49th lieutenant governor of California (2011 to 2019). In 2011, as lieutenant governor, he also began serving as an ex officio Regent on the Board of Regents of the University of California. He has continuously served as an ex officio Regent from 2011 to the present. Now, however, as governor, he is the president of the Board of Regents. Moreover, he has been an ex officio Regent for the entire duration of our legal fight against the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and the UC regents for equal rights and nondiscriminatory treatment of African American students, staff, and faculty. He has been intimately involved in the case. Therefore, he and his wife, Jennifer Lynn Siebel Newsom, the first partner of California, will be defendants in a federal civil lawsuit under the Federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. They also must be deposed immediately in a related state case of fraud and conspiracy in the coming weeks—certainly before the recall election. Section 242 of Title 18 makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or the laws of the United States.
The most compelling reasons to recall California Gov. Gavin Newsom, things you never knew about him, are revealed on this website. The site is divided into three parts: (1) things before the criminal activity, (2) the crimes, and (3) the cover-up.

Stand Up for UC: Mark Yudof
We were invited to help. We took it seriously!
As members of the UC community, the Gordons answered the call. We showed up, and we showed out. We delivered a masterpiece in civic engagement! But we were rejected because of the color of our skin, our ethnicity, and systemic racism by all-white, Jewish decision-makers.
Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel —
“Few are guilty, but all are responsible.”
Please view the visual image of the Jackie Robinson Stadium complex on the Bruin Walk on the campus of UCLA, produced by the University of the ’Hood®. It is part of a larger proposal to establish a living educational memorial called the Jack Roosevelt “Jackie” Robinson Institute of Sports Management—an accredited academic degree-conferring institute (to increase inclusion and diversity in the $75 billion-per-year sports industry) to be integrated with historically Black colleges and universities (HBCU) and UCLA’s existing Graduate Division UC-HBCU Initiative under the auspices of the UCLA Anderson School of Management.
However, from 2011 to the present, this proposal has been rejected by UCLA, the University of California, the Regents of the University of California, and the city of Los Angeles without rhyme or reason in violation of the California Public Records Act (CPRA), Proposition 209, the California Constitution (Section 31 of Article I), and the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Further, they refused to provide the court with the reason for their decision, as is prescribed by law. Their nonverbal and unwritten negative decision regarding the Jackie Robinson proposal was arbitrary and capricious. They willfully nullified the CPRA (sections 6250 et seq.). They illegally withheld the entire statutorily mandated administrative record (AR) in Gordon v. Regents of the University of California et al., while simultaneously arguing the illegality of the Trump administration’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) order to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in Regents of the Univ. of California v. Dept. of Homeland Security, No. 3:17-cv-05211-WHA, for failing to provide the complete AR for the court’s review of DHS’s decision to rescind DACA.
The U.S. Supreme Court eventually ruled that the Trump administration’s actions were illegal. To be clear, the fundamental issues and legal arguments in these two cases (the UC Regents as the plaintiff in federal court and as the defendant in state court) are 100 percent the same—due process and equal protection of the law.
The power of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is not sporadic or intermittent. It’s as regular as your heartbeat. It’s an ever-ready amendment. Its protection applies equally to everyone. And to Black Americans in particular—it is our birthright.
Gov. Gavin Newsom and the UC Regents Wanted to Have Their Cake and Eat It Too.
On June 18, 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court, in a 5–4 decision for the Regents of the University of California, ruled that DHS’s decision to rescind the DACA program was arbitrary and capricious under the Administrative Procedure Act.
Notwithstanding the landmark decision, the UC Regents, Attorney General Xavier Becerra, UC President Janet Napolitano, their lawyers, and Gov. Gavin Newsom continued to pursue and press the Gordon v. Regents of the University of California et al. state case in retaliation and in bad faith.
Based on the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling of June 18, 2020, UCLA, the UC Regents, and the state of California should have capitulated, settled the case, established the Jack Roosevelt “Jackie” Robinson Institute of Sports Management, and built the Jackie Robinson Stadium complex on the Bruin Walk on the campus of UCLA in advance of the 2028 Summer Olympics. [However, to be clear, under the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) rules, UCLA is currently prohibited from being the site for the Olympic Village because of racism and discrimination. IOC Rule 6
Fundamental Principles in the Olympic Charter as well as the guidelines outlined in the IOC Agenda 2020 prohibit discrimination of any kind. See the DHS mandate below.] They should have done these things in the interest of justice and fairness as stated in Gordon v. Regents of the University of California et al., but anti-Black racism, civil liabilities, hubris, and frank embarrassment prevented them from doing the right thing.
Please consider this: California state actors led by Xavier Becerra, Janet Napolitano, and Gov. Gavin Newsom fought for the rights of an estimated 800,000 Dreamers and won because it was the right thing to do. But simultaneously, they fought against and disregarded the rights, dreams, and aspirations of the 40 million original dreamers—Black Americans of African descent in the case of Jackie Robinson’s memory and legacy as a beacon of education for all. Furthermore, passing up a potential revenue stream of $10 million per year for UCLA, the UC Regents, and the state of California is malfeasance in office and a reason for Gov. Newsom’s recall. The state actors’ stupidity and criminality beg the question of why.

Mae Gordon is the owner of the University of the ’Hood and owned the now-defunct I Do Sports Inc. In 2011, she was a 14-year staff member (administrative specialist) of the Health Department of Medicine, Division of Hematology/Oncology at UCLA. As members of the UC family and community, Mae and her spouse, Carl, stood up to answer the call to help UC in a significant way.
We submitted the financially self-sufficient Jackie Robinson proposal with a projected revenue stream of $10 million per year for UCLA and the people of California. The revenue projection was anchored to an annual meeting much like Davos (the World Economic Forum meeting held annually in Davos, Switzerland) to be called the Jackie Robinson International Sports Conference at the Jack Roosevelt “Jackie” Robinson Institute of Sports Management facility on the campus of UCLA.
If not for the narrow-minded, myopic, racist point of view of the monochromatic makeup of the decision-makers, $70 million would have already been generated by the prestigious annual Jackie Robinson International Sports Conference over the past eight years (despite the year lost to the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020), not to mention revenue generated from advertisers, corporate sponsors, and professional sports leagues as well as contributions from UCLA alumni. Further, millions of dollars would have been pumped into the local economy from staging the must-attend international event at UCLA each year—Westwood Village would have been revived economically and transformed into a world-class destination.
In a new study by Citigroup, as a result of discrimination against African Americans, the economy lost $16 trillion over the past 20 years. https://n.pr/3yFEYw4.
Discrimination and racism are not only stupid, but they’re also awfully expensive!

The four elements of the Jackie Robinson proposal
One, the establishment of a living educational memorial called the Jack Roosevelt “Jackie” Robinson Institute of Sports Management—an accredited academic degree-conferring institute to increase inclusion and diversity (preparing people of color to enter the management and ownership ranks of the $75 billion-per-year sports industry)—and integrating and coordinating it with HBCU and UCLA’s existing UC-HBCU Initiative under the auspices of the UCLA Anderson School of Management.
Two, renaming Le Conte Avenue at the gateway to the campus of UCLA as “Jackie Robinson Way” in honor of Jackie Robinson and his widow, 100-year-old (July 19, 2022), Rachel Robinson, a UCLA alumna. Currently, it is named for Joseph Le Conte, the lifelong white supremacist and a Confederate officer from a family of enslavers of Black Americans since before the American Revolution.
Three, the relocation of the current Jackie Robinson Stadium and construction of a new one on the campus of UCLA within three years (notwithstanding the unfair West Los Angeles Leasing Act of 2016, fast-tracked by California Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer and passed with the suspension of “regular order” and without public hearings in the waning months of the Obama administration). Doing so would free up the Veterans Administration (VA) land that is desperately needed for homeless veterans. Los Angeles is the homeless veterans capital of the nation.
Jackie Robinson Stadium currently occupies a portion of this land. The land was deeded to the United States in 1888 for the specific purpose of providing housing for disabled veterans. Further, adequate compensation (with an annuity to the Jackie Robinson Foundation and the Jackie Robinson Museum) should be procured for the Robinson family for the naming rights of the new stadium and for the prestigious annual Jackie Robinson International Sports Conference at the complex on the campus of UCLA. Imagine a new Jackie Robinson Stadium on Bruin Walk. Enjoy the tour again https://youtu.be/4Hv88E1OaNU, and imagine being there.
Four, let us commemorate as an official national holiday—a day of healing, a day of national reflection, and a day of reconciliation each year —the day (April 15, 1947) that Jackie Robinson, Wesley Branch Rickey, and then-commissioner of Major League Baseball Albert Benjamin integrated Major League Baseball. Let us also make April 16 the day for filing taxes so that each April 15 is reserved exclusively for education about, reflection on, and healing of the long-lasting divisions in our nation over the Creator’s infinite wisdom of the biological process of each human being producing more or less melanin—the pigment determining one’s skin, hair, and eye color.
As a nation, we need to confront and deal with this centuries-old simple yet agonizing conundrum now more than ever. Please note that I did not say that we have a race problem; that’s because we don’t! What we have is a lack of understanding, education, and wisdom to know that we are all the same. There’s only one race—the human race, male and female! We’re all descendants of mitochondrial Eve out of Africa.
This national day of remembrance is for all Americans and future generations of Americans to acknowledge where we were in 1947, the progress we have made in human relations as a nation, and where we want to be as Americans—one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all while we celebrate our oneness as Americans and the beauty of our diversity.
The sports pantheons erected on Bruin Walk on the campus of UCLA in honor of the all-time great UCLA sports figures and other luminaries are reserved for whites only. The great Jackie Robinson is excluded from this illustrious honor by UCLA! Fight to stop UCLA from discriminating against Jackie Robinson any longer.
Why is there no sports and educational temple erected on the campus of UCLA on the renowned Bruin Walk in honor of Jackie Robinson?
It is a shame and a travesty that UCLA and the University of California Board of Regents have failed to recognize one of the most consequential individuals of the 20th century, a world-renowned and famous alumnus.
Jackie Robinson was UCLA’s first and only four-sport letter recipient, achieving that extraordinary feat all while simultaneously coping with the egregious white supremacists’ impediments of entrenched institutionalized racism, segregation, and discrimination (Jim Crow laws) not only at UCLA but also throughout California and the nation, as mandated by the U.S. Supreme Court while he and Rachel Annetta Isum attended UCLA.
Neither he nor his future wife, UCLA alumna Rachel, could live in the dorms on the campus of UCLA, simply because of their God-given ability to produce an abundance of melanin. By God’s grace, Mrs. Robinson will be 99 years old on her next birthday, July 19, 2021.
Compare with Jackie Robinson those individuals pictured to the immediate right who are honored on the Bruin Walk. Then ask yourself—are institutional segregation, discrimination, and racism still being practiced at UCLA?
The resounding answer is yes! Read the Independent Investigative Report on Acts of Bias and Discrimination Involving Faculty at the University of California, Los Angeles, October 15, 2013. https://www.ucop.
PAULEY PAVILION is an indoor arena on the campus of UCLA, dedicated in honor of UC Regent Edwin W. Pauley. It is home to the UCLA Bruins men’s and women’s basketball, the men’s and women’s volleyball, and the women’s gymnastics teams. There is an eight-foot memorial statue of John Wooden just outside Pauley Pavilion, diagonally across from the John Wooden Center. Jackie Robinson got a 42-inch-high monument and two benches!
THE JOHN WOODEN CENTER is named in honor of legendary basketball coach John Wooden. It is the main building for intramural athletics at UCLA. It serves as one of the home venues for the UCLA women’s volleyball team and is a training gym for the UCLA gymnastics team.
DRAKE STADIUM is the home of UCLA’s track and field team. The stadium was named in honor of Elvin C. “Ducky” Drake, a student-athlete, track coach, and athletic trainer for over 60 years at UCLA.
STRAUS STADIUM at the L.A. Tennis Center, on the UCLA campus, is a tennis facility for the UCLA Bruins women’s and men’s tennis teams. Straus Stadium was named for Leonard Straus, the former chairman of Thrifty Drugs; the center court is called the Times-Mirror Center Court, and the tennis drawboard was named for Johnny Carson. The scoreboard is the Union 76 Scoreboard.
Whitewashing media tricks and see-through public relations (PR)
The current location of Jackie Robinson Stadium is off-campus. The stadium occupies a portion of VA land—West Los Angeles Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The land was deeded to the United States in 1888 for the specific purpose of providing housing for disabled veterans.
The construction of the new Jackie Robinson Stadium and the Jack Roosevelt “Jackie” Robinson Institute of Sports Management—an accredited academic degree-conferring institute on the campus of UCLA—would free up the VA land, which is desperately needed for homeless veterans. Los Angeles is the homeless veterans capital of the nation.
Some months after the April 2014 Donald Sterling-UCLA racist scandal dissipated, UCLA concocted a PR stunt in November 2014 and announced (purportedly in honor of the 75th anniversary of Jackie Robinson’s enrollment at UCLA) that it was naming its athletic facilities after Jackie Robinson. And in March 2015, UCLA begrudgingly positioned a monument (pictured above)—a 42-inch-tall “42” in bronze and two wooden benches in honor of Jackie Robinson—on UCLA’s Bruin Walk in front of the John Wooden Recreation Center. Again, this was a PR stunt by UCLA (to ameliorate its sullied reputation because of the symbiotics toxic relationship with Donald Sterling) and LA 2024 Chairman Casey Wasserman to curry favor with the International Olympic Committee to have Los Angeles chosen as the host city for the 2024 Olympics and for UCLA to be the site of the Olympic Village—it worked, only for the Olympics Games scheduled for Los Angeles in 2028.
Nonetheless, any time Jackie Robinson is honored is a good thing. We can only hope that an African American artist was given an opportunity (a full commission) to design and fashion the sculpture.
On April 29, 2014, UCLA spokeswoman Carol Stogsdill said, “Mr. Sterling’s divisive and hurtful comments demonstrate that he does not share UCLA’s core values as a public university that fosters diversity, inclusion, and respect. For those reasons, UCLA has decided to return Mr. Sterling’s initial payment of $425,000 and reject the remainder of a $3 million pledge.” This statement is an example of media prestidigitation—a media magic trick. Stogsdill earned her paycheck. Funny thing is that they were aware of him, and they knew that he was an anti-Black racist before they began to take his money in 2009, as is made clear by this Department of Justice press release, http://bit.ly/2pEvBZA.
Every day, somewhere in America, Jackie Robinson’s name is evoked as an example of courage and hope for a better future. He was a highly intelligent, driven man chosen for an especially important rendezvous with destiny, a man who truly gave more than he took, and he made the world a better place than it was when he arrived here. He was emblematic of Albert Einstein’s thinking.
“It is every man’s obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out of it.” –Albert Einstein
From 2011 to the present, for 10 years, the decision-makers—Gov. Gavin Newsom; the Regents of the University of California, UCLA (Chancellor Gene David Block, Vice-Chancellor Rhea Jo Pincus Turteltaub, and the former president of the University of California, Mark George Yudof); the city of Los Angeles; council member Paul Koretz; and Mayor Eric Michael Garcetti, none of whom is a person of color—have
opposed removing the name of Joseph Le Conte (a man from a family of multigenerational enslavers of Black people, a lifelong racist, and a white supremacist) from a street at the gateway to UCLA—a public university—and renaming the street “Jackie Robinson Way” in honor of a truly authentic American hero, Jackie Robinson. President Ronald Reagan said Jackie Robinson was a good citizen, a great man, and a true American.
UCLA engaged in blatant ethnic, racial, and national origin discrimination. UCLA Chancellor Block and Vice Chancellor for UCLA External Affairs Rhea Turteltaub engaged in perpetuating institutional racism and personal ethnic, racial, and national origin discrimination when they accepted money from Lowell Milken for the Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy at the UCLA School of Law (in the same month they rejected the Jackie Robinson proposal); Donald Sterling’s $3 million pledge (and the $425,000 installment he made) to the UCLA Division of Nephrology; and the Nazarians’ gift for the Younes & Soraya Nazarian Center for Israel Studies on the campus of UCLA in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Nazarian. The Nazarians and their family are Iranian-Jewish political refugees who emigrated to the United States in 1978, escaping religious and ethnic discrimination just prior to the Iranian Revolution in 1979.
However, over the past 10 years, Block, Turteltaub, the UC Regents, and Gov. Newsom (as president of the UC Board of Regents) have rejected and refused to accept money from Mae Gordon, a longtime UCLA African American staff employee, and her spouse, Carl (members of the UC community; U.S. citizens hailing from Watts, Willowbrook, and Compton, California; with the U.S. our national origin) for the establishment of a living educational memorial to honor the memory and legacy of Jackie Robinson on the campus of UCLA— Jackie and Rachel Robinson’s alma mater.
—The Jewish cabal and their acolytes at the Regents of the University of California,
the University of California, UCLA, and Los Angeles City Hall.
For those who may consider this calling out of discrimination and systemic racism of the Regents of the University of California, the University of California, UCLA, and the city of Los Angeles and revealing the truth about members of the Jewish community who are responsible (by the way, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel would be ashamed of those involved) defamatory about Jews or anti-Semitic, it is not! It is calling out (with irrefutable facts that support the allegations) anti-Black racism, ethnicity favoritism, and discrimination against African Americans by senior administration officials at the aforementioned institutions and agencies.
To be clear, a cabal is a small group of people united in some close design, usually to promote their private views or
interests in an ideology, often by intrigue and usually unbeknownst to those outside their group. The term “cabal” derives from Kabbalah, a traditional system of esoteric Jewish mysticism.
The use of the term Jewish cabal in this context to characterize the group of perpetrators who are Jewish and who have committed misconduct and crimes to achieve their goal is not a trope, hyperbole, or a reckless allegation. Moreover, it is not meant to be derogatory.
The University of the ’Hood and Carl Gordon, the author of this website, wish that there were an African American cabal to celebrate our oneness as Americans and the beauty of our diversity and to advance the centuries-old Basic Black Agenda—justice, equality, and equal opportunity in all things.
We Will Not Allow Them to Cheat Us and Steal Our Constitutional Birthright.
For 10 years, we, as Americans, refused to accept this blatant racial discrimination and preferential treatment of one ethnic group over another (Jews over African Americans rendered by all-Jewish decision-makers.) This illegal discrimination has been aided and abetted by Gov. Newsom in violation of California’s Proposition 209 and other sections of the California Constitution. We have fought UCLA, the UC Regents, and the state of California for all these years, and now we’re poised to file an action in the United States District Court for the Central District of California in Los Angeles in one case and a petition for a writ of certiorari with the United States Supreme Court in a related case.

The California Democratic Party Needs a Political Root Canal Now.
On August 11, 2018, we warned Thomas Perez, Nancy Pelosi, Christine Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, Gavin Newsom, and others that there was a fire in the house of the Democratic Party and that the accelerant was racism and hypocrisy. (Pardon the mixed metaphor.) The warning went unheeded three years ago.
The California Democratic Party needs a political root canal now so we can have something to smile about again. Not only does Gov. Newsom need to be recalled from office by the voters (because he’s rotten; however, he’s not beyond healing and redemption), but the corrupt, hypocritical elected and appointed officials of the Democratic Party in California also must be removed because of their threat to equal rights for all and to our democracy. I’m advocating this as a 75-year-old, Black man, a lifelong Democrat working and volunteering in this space. This recall action is contrary to what the governor and the Democratic Party are saying—it’s part of their Big California Lie. The recall is bipartisan. The legal recall effort is not a coup d’état, as California Democratic Party Chairman Rusty Hicks characterized it as analogous to the January 6 Capitol insurrection. That’s simply not true. The one-party (Democratic Party) rule in California fostered and perpetuated the Big California Lie. And like for decayed, rotten teeth, a root canal must be performed, or they must be removed to restore a healthy balance to the body politic in California. Support our imminent legal action against Gov. Newsom and his conspirators now with a contribution of any size to the University of the ’Hood® legal fund.
And further, at the appropriate time, have your attorney file an amicus curiae letter in support of our petition for a writ of certiorari with the U.S. Supreme Court in the matter of Carl Gordon v. Regents of the University of California et al., filed October 11, 2016, in the Superior Court of
California, County of Los Angeles, case number BS165809; appeared in the California District Court of Appeal, Second District, case number B301623; and in the California Supreme Court, case number S266206. This must be filed within the next 30 days, according to the court-ordered extension due to COVID-19.
Gov. Newsom; his wife, Jennifer Lynn Siebel Newsom, the first partner of California; and others are linked to the related fraud and corruption legal malpractice lawsuit—Carl Gordon v. Felton Thomas Newell, Jr., case 19STCV42472, in the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles—based on fraud and other federal crimes, including the Federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. Gov. Newsom and his wife must be deposed in the coming weeks. (See The Old Black Man And The Governor’s Wife)
The case is inextricably linked to the matter of Carl Gordon v. Regents of the University of California et al. and the subsequent appeals, all related to Gov. Newsom and the Democrat-led state Legislature—the subject of the imminent petition for a writ of certiorari with the United States Supreme Court.
Fellow Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and the politically homeless, join our legal fight to depose Gov. Newsom, his wife, and others in the coming weeks. Voters need to know about their long-term and continuous public corruption and how deep it runs in the Democratic Party. The corruption involves an array of current and former California state officials, from Janet
Napolitano, former president of the University of California; to UC Regents board members’ unethical behavior to Democrat-appointed judges who violate judicial ethics and their oath to defend and support the constitutions of the United States and California to California’s prohibition on state-funded and state-sponsored travel to states with purported discriminatory laws against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people while state officials and judicial officers are discriminating here in California against African Americans; to the partisan stewardship of the California Attorney General’s office during Xavier Becerra’s tenure; to UCLA Chancellor Gene Block. Napolitano hid funds and obstructed the audit (the California auditor found that the UC President’s office hid $175 million); Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s husband, Richard Blum, a member of the UC Board of Regents, unapologetically wrote letters of recommendation to influence the admission of otherwise unqualified students to universities of California’s university system; and Block is guilty of conspiracy and honest services fraud under United States Code Title 18 Section 1346 from 2009 to 2019.
Others also acted with Newsom’s full knowledge, dating back to when he was lieutenant governor, when he was totally disinterested in doing the job voters expected from an elected official. He was AWOL. California voters are due a refund from him on his way out the door. Gov. Newsom is the highest-ranking governing member on the Board of Regents of the University of California—the buck stops with him. Voters must know the truth about him before the recall. Donate today to fight fraud, corruption, and the Big California Lie.
Recall him! Restore Honesty and Integrity to California.
While there have been rampant political corruption and multiple UC admissions scandals over the past 10 years, African American admissions to UC have steadily decreased while those of other minority groups have steadily increased by design. The numbers don’t lie.
Qualified African American UC-eligible students who weren’t accepted at UCLA or UC Berkeley were hurt by unethical if not illegal behavior by Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s husband, UC Regents board member Richard Blum.
The Black Bruins
UCLA Law Students Protest Lack of Diversity.
The enrollment of 96 African American students at UCLA, a public university, was at a 30-year low in 2006. In 2007, a secret, self-selected group of UCLA leaders devised an elaborate scheme (by hook or by crook) to hide the ongoing shameful admission scandal at UCLA that was based on race and ethnicity.
To ameliorate the deficit in the admission of African Americans and the areas of inclusion and diversity, on December 21, 2006, UC President Robert C. Dynes, in concert with the UC Board of Regents, announced the appointment of Gene D. Block as the new chancellor of UCLA. His chancellorship would begin on August 1, 2007. By August 2007, Block was the third chancellor of UCLA within three years.
However, bringing Block on board had no impact on the decision-making process to admit any students in 2007-08. His challenge would come with the freshman class of 2009.
In June 2008, ten months after Chancellor Block began his tenure, admission trends were emerging for fall 2009. By early 2009, enrollment numbers were known to UCLA officials; in March 2009, freshmen admissions were announced.
Under Block’s first full year of responsibility for admissions, there were 37 fewer African American freshmen enrolled for fall 2009 compared with 2008. Out of the 4,472 freshmen students admitted to UCLA for fall 2009, only 193 (including profit-producing student-athlete recruits) were African Americans.
However, sometime between the spring of 2008 and the end of 2008, the cabal at UCLA launched a scheme to insulate Block and the university from criticism based on the early forecast of declining enrollment of African American students, and for the nearly 100 percent exclusion of Black Americans from policy-making and decision-making positions in UCLA’s hierarchy.
The cabal moved aggressively and with corrupt intent to hide the omnipresence of a racially isolated, hostile workplace environment for African Americans with endless microaggressions and a generally unwelcome environment for Black students, faculty, and staff at UCLA—a public university.
Unfortunately, an element of the scheme called for Block to be presented with a fake, unearned, unwarranted, and undeserved award—specifically for increasing inclusion and diversity—from the venerable civil rights organization, the Los Angeles branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (Los Angeles NAACP), which was used not only to honor Block but, by extension, was conferred on the UC Regents and the UC.
Contrary to the NAACP’s ethics, moral standards, and history of advocating for civil rights and fighting for racial justice, Leon Jenkins, then the president of the Los Angeles NAACP, possessed none of those qualities or any sense of the history of the true mission of the NAACP. As a result, Jenkins was easily compromised by his co-conspirators—billionaire Donald Sterling, the “esteemed” chancellor of UCLA Gene D. Block, and Vice-Chancellor for External Affairs Rhea Jo Pincus Turteltaub, who knew or should have known about the fraudulent scheme.
The Regents of the University of California, UC, and the UCLA Academic Senate also knew or should have known that the Los Angeles NAACP award was a sham.
In a cruel irony, UCLA leaders used the Los Angeles NAACP to inoculate themselves from criticism from the Los Angeles NAACP in 2006 for the university’s lack of inclusion and diversity. UCLA’s illegal, corrupt practices rendered the Los Angeles NAACP impotent and ineffective, and 37 fewer Black students enrolled at the university in 2009.
Game, set, and match to the cabal at UCLA. Inclusion and diversity imprimatur inoculation was successful. The illusion of inclusion/diversity was effective and reliable to the world until January 2019. It was the ultimate “mission accomplished.”
Block knowingly and deliberately began to use (publicize) the bogus NAACP award as if it were legitimate on his official UCLA bio page of his UC-paid-for-and-maintained website for the sole purpose of deceiving the public into believing that he had earned a prestigious award. It was not the truth. Block cheated and defrauded the public out of the intangible right of honest services for 10 years—a federal crime!
There is an abundance of evidence that Block did not legitimately earn the Los Angeles NAACP Foundation President’s Award in 2009, and that he should not have been honored with an award for his self-proclaimed but non-existent efforts in achieving higher levels of diversity at UCLA in 2009. Block lied and falsified university records to cover up the scandal of excluding UC-eligible African American students at the behest of the cabal at UCLA from 2009 to 2019.
Moreover, Block’s data show that there was a sharp, 16 percent drop in diversity at UCLA between fall 2008 and fall 2009. Again, using Block’s data about diversity, 37 African American freshmen otherwise UC-eligible were excluded from attending UCLA in the fall of 2009.
The admission scandal in 2020 is a continuation of the 2006 scandal at UCLA. White privilege and affluent affirmative action in college admission, as in housing, employment, healthcare, and quality of life, are alive and well. Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s husband, Richard Blum’s actions and arrogant admission (“I did it a bunch of times” and “No one ever told me it was wrong”) as a University Regent bears witness to that fact.
Leon Jenkins was exposed publicly as having a character flaw and a person you wouldn’t want your university to be associated with, let alone receive any type of an award from as an esteemed chancellor of a preeminent university. But in reality, at the end of the day, Chancellor Block was of the same character!
According to an article in the Los Angeles Times by Angel Jennings, published on April 30, 2014, Leon Jenkins was admitted to practice law in Michigan in 1979 and in California the following year. In 1984, he was appointed a district court judge in Michigan. Mr. Jenkins was a Detroit judge who was indicted in 1988 on federal bribery, conspiracy, mail fraud, and racketeering charges, according to records from the State Bar of California. Authorities alleged that Judge Jenkins received gifts from those who appeared in his court and that Jenkins committed perjury, according to the records.
He was acquitted of criminal charges, but in 1994 the Michigan Supreme Court found that between 1984 and 1987, Jenkins “systematically and routinely sold his office and his public trust, . . . committed wholesale violations of the most elementary canons of judicial conduct and brought grave dishonor upon this state’s judiciary.” The Michigan Supreme Court disbarred him according to the bar records.

The Los Angeles NAACP accepted at least $45,000 from charitable foundations closely associated with Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling around the time of the event. The majority of those contributions were made shortly before the branch presented a lifetime achievement award to Sterling in 2009. In 2008-09, according to a Huffington Post article published on April 28, 2014, the Los Angeles Clippers Foundation donated (the largest financial sponsor of the NAACP Gala), $20,000 to the Los Angeles NAACP, then under the direction of Jenkins’ leadership. The foundation donated another $5,000 in 2009, shortly before the Los Angeles NAACP bestowed Sterling with a lifetime achievement award, and Block with the NAACP Foundation President’s Award. Block continuously passed the fake award off on the public from 2009 until 2019 as legitimately earned. See https://bit.ly/2HDH8VF. On April 28, 2009, UCLA Newsroom announced the impending fake award.
Unite Against the Hypocritical California State-Sponsored Discrimination
and the Big California Lie.
We, the American people of these United States, are sentinels for the core values of fairness, justice, and equality, and ours are nonnegotiable demands! This fight against Gov. Newsom and other state actors and malefactors of California in order to protect these values was inspired by the exemplary life of Jackie Robinson.
Join the fight because it is your fight too. We need to recall Gavin Newsom from office. Use your personal social media contacts to spread the word about the untruthful, hypocritical Gov. Gavin Newsom; the Regents of the University of California; the University of California; UCLA; and the California Legislature. California state-sponsored restrictions on travel to Alabama, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Texas are short-sighted and an overreach, even for a state with the fifth-largest economy in the world.
The California-sponsored travel ban on the targeted states is because of laws passed by those individual states’ legislatures that Gov. Newsom and the California legislature deemed to be discriminatory against LGBTQ individuals in the aforementioned states—legal jurisdictions completely foreign to California.
As the author of this website, at this time I do not have enough information to form an opinion on whether a member of the LGBTQ community has been discriminated against and has filed a lawsuit challenging the law of any particular state for discrimination or violation of their due process rights and equal protection of the law.
However, I do know for sure that Gov. Newsom; the Regents of the University of California; the University of
California; UCLA; the California Attorney General’s office; the California judiciary, including the Supreme Court of California and the California Commission on Judicial Performance; and others discriminated against me based on the color of my skin and ethnicity as African American and then actively engaged in a cover-up of it.
The foolhardy (law) restrictive action is a classic “the pot calling the kettle black” hypocritical scenario. It is also an invitation for one-quarter of the states in the Union to retaliate against Gov. Newsom and the state of California. Do the math. Each state has two senators. The 12 states affected by California’s state-sponsored travel ban may be inclined to band together. That’s a powerful voting block of 24 against California on any matter before the United States Senate tied to the interests of the state of California.
What immediately comes to mind is obvious retaliation against California and the city of Los Angeles as the host city for the 2028 Summer Olympics Games and UCLA serving as the site for the Olympic Village. A positive move by the 12 states would be to unite to ensure that all California residents receive fair and equitable treatment. Another positive move would be the congressional and state delegations of each of the 12 states coalescing around the recall of Gov. Newsom with the message from the Holy Bible; Matthew 7:5 is the fifth verse of the seventh chapter of the Gospel of Matthew in the New Testament and is part of the Sermon on the Mount. And our recommendation is exactly that—and to contribute to the University of the ’Hood’s legal fund to defeat Gov. Newsom, the Regents of the University of California, UCLA, and the state of California in the United States Supreme Court.
You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see
clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
“With honor and integrity, we will safeguard the American
people, our homeland, and our values.”
Billions of dollars in taxpayers’ money will be allocated and spent by the United States Department of Homeland Security for security in Los Angeles, California, during the 2028 Olympic Games.
Staging the games in Los Angeles automatically mandates (by federal statute) that the Olympic Games (on U.S. soil) be designated a National Special Security Event by the DHS.
Therefore, federal tax revenue from Alabama, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Texas, along with tax revenue from the other 38 states, including California and U.S. territories, will be used to provide security in the state of California and Los Angeles for a nongovernmental (private), internationally controlled event.
Such allocations of federal resources make this a federal issue with nondiscrimination mandates that must be met and federal laws that must be adhered to by the DHS, the state of California,
the city of Los Angeles, the Regents of the University of California, the University of California, UCLA, and the International Olympic Committee.
Taxpayers—particularly in Alabama, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, and the other 38 states—want the federal government to hold California and all the aforementioned agencies accountable for participating in and condoning racial, ethnic, and national origin discrimination before any taxpayer money is committed or used in support of a nongovernmental (private) internationally controlled event.
The state of California, the city of Los Angeles, the UC Regents, and UCLA cannot engage in discrimination and still host the Olympic Games (with public funds) in 2028. Period! Former California Attorney General Xavier Becerra’s words—“There are consequences to discrimination.”—were never more apropos.
The Betrayal and Coup de Grâce
The Gospel of Matthew 26:15 in the New Testament.
Although he was president of the John M. Langston Bar Association of Los Angeles, the oldest and largest Black bar association in the Western United States, California attorney Felton Thomas Newell Jr.’s betrayal and Uncle Tomism were beyond that depicted in 19th-century minstrel shows and vaudeville or by the psychologically, racially twisted fictional character Stephen, played brilliantly by Samuel L. Jackson in Quentin Tarantino’s 2012 film Django Unchained.
While those characters are stereotypical and greatly offensive, this odious, intentional criminal behavior by the brotha is real life, with real-life consequences, and the University of the ’Hood paid Mr. Newell for the terrible, regrettable experience. When we engaged Mr. Newell, the betrayer, the University of the ’Hood was circulating Black dollars within the Black professional community (as it is the responsibility of all African Americans to support Black-owned businesses and to incrementally close the African American achievement gap, and the fee was paid in advance).
Newell’s and Gov. Newsom’s selfish acts and criminal behavior were impediments to positive steps toward the goal of closing the wealth and achievement gaps for African Americans. Education is the linchpin of closing the gaps.
The African American student enrollment rates dropped significantly immediately after the passage of Prop 209. Criticism was raised that of the 4,422 students in UCLA’s freshman class of 2006, only 96 (2.26%) were African American. Source: Wikipedia NPR: Black Student Enrollment at UCLA Plunges.
They made him an offer he couldn’t refuse!
Without my knowledge or consent, my then-attorney Felton Thomas Newell Jr., California Bar number 201078, while representing me, the first steward of the University of the ’Hood, in the matter of Carl Gordon v. Regents of the University of California et al., met with then-Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom while Newsom was serving as an ex officio Regent on the Board of Regents of the University of California. This meeting violated the UC Board of Regents’ Policy 1111: Policy on Statement of Ethical Values and Standards of Ethical Conduct and violated the State Bar of California’s code of legal ethics.
Nonetheless, on or about September 6, 2017, Newell received an offer he couldn’t refuse—to be revealed in court filings. If not for this betrayal, the University of the ’Hood and the people of California would have prevailed. Justice would have been served in 2017. Furthermore, the state of California, the UC Regents, and UCLA would be $70 million richer, according to a University of the ’Hood analysis.
According to the Citigroup study, $13 trillion was lost (between 2000 and 2020) in potential business revenue because of discriminatory lending to African American entrepreneurs, with an estimated 6.1 million jobs not generated as a result. https://n.pr/3yFEYw4
Then-Lt. Gov. Newsom and the UC Regents’ attorneys knew what I as Newell’s client did not know. They knew that Newell, as a former Los Angeles deputy city attorney, was scamming the public, the city of Los Angeles Office of Finance, and the State Bar of California while illegally and unethically doing business in the city of Los Angeles as the Newell Law Firm for three years or so when, in fact, he was a solo practitioner. In an order-to-show-cause hearing on November 21, 2018, he admitted to the court that while he was representing me, he was a solo practitioner and not a law firm as he fraudulently held himself out to be to me and to the public.
The September 6, 2017 meeting between Newsom and Newell is important for three reasons. It’s the day that Newell betrayed his oath as an attorney and his obligation to help the next generation of deserving, high-quality Black students. He prolonged this struggle for racial and social justice for 30 pieces of silver.
Further, September 6, 2017, is the date that then-Lt. Gov. Newsom, an ex officio UC Regent, entered into troubled conspiratorial waters under the Federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. As noted Section 242 of Title 18 makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or the laws of the United States.
With the conspiratorial elements of their scheme firmly in place in the matter of Carl Gordon v. Regents of the University of California et al. —the nullification of California Code, Government Code GOV § 6250, and the aiding and abetting by attorney Newell—on September 8, 2017, Janet Napolitano, in her official capacity as president of the University of California, initiated a legal action (case No. 3:17-cv-05211-WHA) in federal court challenging President Trump’s attempted revocation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. And on September 11, 2017, a coordinated effort by several states and cities, led by the then-attorney general of California, Xavier Becerra, also initiated a legal action (case No. 3:17-cv-05235-MEJ (N.D. Cal.) challenging President Trump’s attempted revocation of DACA. All the cases were subsequently combined by the court as one case.
The causes of action and arguments in each complaint were virtually the same—that the proposed revocation violated Fifth Amendment due process, Fourteenth Amendment equal protection, and the Administrative Procedure Act [the Trump administration refused to provide the complete AR record to the plaintiffs or to the court for review of what justified their decision-making with regard to DACA].

The UC Regents argued in federal court in Regents of the University of California v. U.S. Department of Homeland Security that the statutorily mandated administrative record (AR) was incomplete because it contains only documents personally considered by the acting secretary of DHS (and then only some of those she considered) and excludes any other documents that indirectly led to the rescission of DACA.
However, in Carl Gordon v. Regents of the University of California et al., the UC regents provided no statutorily mandated AR even after twice being ordered by the trial court to do so, though the UC Regents twice promised to do so. The UC Regents’ false promises were only part of an elaborate scheme to commit fraud upon the state court. For the most part, the UC Regents’ federal and state cases ran parallel to each other. The UC Regents in the federal case demanded the AR as a matter of law. In Carl Gordon v. Regents of the University of California et al., the UC regents nullified the laws—the California Privacy Rights Act (Government Code sections 6250 et seq.)—and the court orders.
As officers of the court, all the attorneys in the case including Carl Gordon’s, attorneys Mr. Newell, and Kelly A. Aviles SBN 257168 committed fraud upon the court by, among other things, not lodging a true and complete AR with the court for the court’s review as required by law.

No matter the results of the recall election, we’ll always have Paris, the French Laundry, and
The California Good Life, Brought to You by the PlumpJack Group.
At least eight companies (the PlumpJack Group, managed and operated by Gov. Newsom’s sister, Hilary Newsom—the co-president/partner—and partially owned by Gov. Gavin Newsom) collectively received nearly $3 million from the Paycheck Protection Program, according to an ABC 7 analysis.
Character Matters: Leadership Descends From Character.—Rush Limbaugh
California, Here We Come.
In the United States, white women falsely accusing Black men of anything has proven throughout history to be lethal.
The viral video trended on Twitter and sparked a conversation about recent examples of white people calling the police on Black people unnecessarily, an action often viewed as a threat to the life of a Black person in the context of police brutality and racial profiling in the U.S.
Racial profiling has become a flashpoint in recent years, with incidents of white people calling out Black people unnecessarily going viral. #SittingInStarbucks https://www.youtube.com/
watch?v=D0Aj08cntf4 SBUX While Black emerged in 2018 after Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson were arrested and spent hours in jail for sitting in a Starbucks without having ordered anything. An employee called the cops on them, triggering public outrage over the incident. The company and the CEO later apologized, and the following month, all 8,000 U.S. Starbucks stores were closed for racial bias training. Social media has given a microphone to Black people who have shared stories of harassment and profiling with the hashtags #Barbecuing
WhileBlack, and #drivingwhileblack.

Civic Engagement While Black—
My mere email and cell phone communications with the governor’s wife while Black put me in great peril.
Jennifer Lynn Siebel Newsom
I was falsely accused by Jennifer Lynn Siebel Newsom, Gov. Gavin Newsom’s wife, of making some type of threat. She weaponized her gender and whiteness and abused her position as the governor’s wife to intimidate me and to threaten my life (anytime a Black man in America has an encounter with law enforcement, it can turn deadly in an instant) by knowingly initiating a false police report with the Governor’s Protection Detail (GPD) and of the California Highway Patrol (CHP)—the highest level of law enforcement in California and the largest police agency in the United States. Jennifer Siebel Newsom—first partner https://www.gov.ca.gov
Jennifer Lynn Siebel Newsom was born on June 19, 1974, in San Francisco to Kenneth F. Siebel Jr., an investment manager, and Judy (Fritzer) Siebel,
co-founder of the Bay Area Discovery Museum in Sausalito. She grew up in Ross, Marin County, California—a bastion of whiteness in Northern California. Source: Wikipedia at https://bit.ly/3fw5wpo
At the 2010 census, Ross had a population of 2,415. The racial makeup of Ross was 2,265 (93.8%) white and six (0.2%) Black. At the 1980 census, Ross had a population of 17 Blacks, and it had a population of five Black people at the 1990 census when Jennifer Siebel was 16 years old.
Her interaction with Black people (like that of most white Americans) has been limited throughout her entire life of 45 years in 2019 when she made her knowingly and intentionally false (potentially deadly) police report with the GPD of the CHP against this 75-year-old Black man.
The Weaponization of White Womanhood Circa 2019
The Weaponization of White Womanhood Circa 1955
On August 31, 2019, I reached out to the governor’s wife, Jennifer Newsom (a public figure), and directly called her cell phone number to introduce myself. She lied and said I had the wrong number. I politely informed her I knew I had the correct number. I then hung up and followed up with an email and text message to the same number and copied her chief of staff, Rebecca Beland McNaught, and her director of communications, Hannah Tessa Milgrom, on their taxpayer-issued and taxpayer-paid-for cell telephones with the following email. Please note the subject line.
We never received a direct reply from Mrs. Newsom or her staff. But what we did receive was a completely unexpected, frightening, and intimidating telephone call from the state police—CHP officer Justin Benjamin Rosete from the DPS.
The governor’s wife, Jennifer Newsom, called the DPS of the CHP to target and investigate this 73-year-old Black man (at the time) and his wife of 56 years, who were 400 miles away from her when the call was placed and the email was sent.
Mrs. Newsom knew exactly what she was doing when she called the DPS of the CHP on this Black man—who made no criminal acts or threats—and falsely accused him.
Mrs. Newsom called upon her reservoir of white privilege (rooted and nurtured in enduring racism and biases in the country)—that of a white woman signaling faux fear and crying wolf to a notoriously white male-dominated law enforcement apparatus in the country, stating that a Black man spoke back to her and sassed her as if the year were 1919 in the Jim Crow South.
Mrs. Newsom weaponized the brief encounter on the cell phone with this Black man by pulling off-the-shelf tried-and-true, ready-made, racialized, go-to stereotypical mental imagery of a Black man exhibiting intimidating and criminally threatening behavior to a white woman. The history of lynching in America is replete with Black men hanging from trees after being falsely accused of some type of offense against a white woman.
With the power of the state (literally the California state police) behind her, Mrs. Newsom stoked negative racial hate and stereotypes (that potentially could have been lethal to me, considering the history of police violence against Black people that can occur anytime and anywhere in America) simply because this Black man reached out to her—the first partner of California, a public figure—on her taxpayer-provided and taxpayer-paid-for cell phone.
I reiterate, Mrs. Newsom knew exactly what she was doing. To be clear, we’re talking about a highly educated white woman—albeit one who grew up and came from a cloistered, nearly all-white, small town in Northern California, where
only five to 17 Black people resided during her cognitive maturing and young adult years in the small town of Ross in Marin County, California. And it’s where she still lives with her husband, the governor; where she feels comfortable; and where she’s raising her four children.
As stated, Mrs. Newsom is a highly educated woman. She earned a bachelor’s degree with honors in 1996 and an MBA in 2001 from Stanford University. At present, she is registered as an Independent voter. Prior to that, she was a Republican, and prior to being a Republican, it has been noted that she mistakenly registered with the far-right American Independent Party. As far as I can tell, she never has been registered with the Democratic Party.
After I received the intimidating telephone call from the state police—CHP officer Rosete of the DPS—I was upset and furious because I knew that any type of encounter with law enforcement at any level could escalate out of control and be deadly for a Black person in this country. Again, please note the subject line of my email to Mrs. Newsom and to her staff.
Note the identifying information in the subject line—my name, that I am an African American, that I am nearly 74 years of age, that I am married, and that we are lifelong residents of California and Democrats. Further, in the closing of my email to her, I cite the college I graduated from and the postgraduate degree I earned. However, I was still falsely accused of being a threat, notwithstanding the positive, conciliatory tone of the email itself.
We were angry at and frightened by the response from Mrs. Newsom and CHP officer Justin Rosete of the DPS, but we channeled that anger into a positive course of action.
I sought information on what threat I supposedly posed to Mrs. Newsom’s physical safety when I was some 392.7 miles away from her and on a cell phone.
Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, I submitted a request for information as to why we were being targeted and the subjects of an investigation by the DPS of the state police. The following is their email response.
The Tragic History of White Women’s Lies,
and Black Men’s Lives.
Other than being six-and-a-half decades later, is there any difference in the purpose of the lies and false police reports by white women against Black men? In 1955, Carolyn Bryant Donham, a white woman, falsely accused Emmett Till, a 14-year-old Black boy of accosting her. In 2020, in Central Park, Amy Cooper, a white woman, called 911 on her cell phone and falsely accused Christian Cooper, a Black man, of threatening her and her dog. On or about August 31, 2019, the governor’s wife, Jennifer Lynn Siebel Newsom, falsely accused Carl Gordon, a Black man, of calling her on her cell phone, prompting an intimidating, frightening, and chilling investigation by the DPS of the state police—the CHP—that could have ended very badly for me and my family.
The senseless murder of George Floyd happened nine months later, on May 25, 2020. Darnella Frazier, a courageous teenager, recorded the final moments of Mr. Floyd’s life in a video that reverberated around the world. We All were witnesses to a street lynching of a Black man at the hands of a white member of law enforcement personnel who was the judge, jury, and executioner—all in the matter of 9 minutes and 29 seconds!
Fast-Forward to May 29, 2020
The most important thing is honesty.
Once you can fake that, you’ve got it made.
Gov. Gavin Newsom shared an emotional story about explaining George Floyd’s death to his young children.
Really? “Four young kids, trying to come to grips with what millions of Americans are trying to come to grips with.” The death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police on May 25, 2020.
What mother purposely would let her four young children be exposed to and experience such psychological trauma—seeing the suffering and sadistic murder of a human being at the hands of the police? This was child abuse. If it happened.
Does, the unwitting telling by Gov. Newsom of bad parenting by his wife ring true? Or does it sound like a made-up story (especially when he says, “true story”)? Or was the governor simply channeling the spirit of Rahm Emanuel on May 29, 2020?
Rahm Emanuel is the former mayor of Chicago and a former Democratic congressman from Illinois, and he was chief of staff to President Barack Obama. He is famous for saying “You never let a serious crisis go to waste.”
Ask yourself this: Does the story sound like (white) kids ages 10, 8, 6, and 4 living in a racially white isolated environment would have the world view to express such empathy for a Black man and the police? This question is especially apropos and questionable because these children
are the offspring of parents who purposely and deliberately made a false (racialized) police report to the CHP (DPS) against this 75-year-old Black man less than nine months before the death of George Floyd.
For the average white person, having an encounter with the police usually has a positive outcome. But for Black people, having an encounter with the police could result in death for no reason other than their Blackness!
As a Black man of African descent, I was deliberately subjected to the “Karen phenomenon” by a lying white woman—Gavin Newsom’s wife.
White women who call the police on random Black people who are simply living their daily lives are pejoratively referred to as “Karens” for this racist behavior. It comes from and is part of the long history (against Black men) and the tragic legacy of white women racializing (D.W. Griffith’s film Birth of a Nation, released over a century ago is a classic example) and weaponizing white privilege and false victimization. Throughout American history, this false white woman victimhood has been fatal for Black men and devastating for their families.
May 29, 2020
Gov. Gavin Newsom continues to lie about the need to end systematic racism,
while personally supporting and practicing it.
U.S. Supreme Court hands the Regents of the University of California and Gov. Gavin Newsom a major Fourteenth Amendment victory.
June 18, 2020
The U.S. Supreme Court decision 5-4 for the Regents of the University of California was
a major victory for Gov. Gavin Newsom, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra,
University of California President Janet Napolitano, and 800,000 Dreamers.
However, the victory is diminished by Gov. Gavin Newsom’s continued violation of African American’s—the original dreamers— constitutional rights guaranteed under the Fourteenth Amendment to the
United States Constitution.
As noted above, the U.S. Supreme Court, on June 18, 2020, in a 5–4 decision for the Regents of the University of California, ruled that the Department of Homeland Security’s decision to rescind the Delayed Action for Childhood Arrivals program was arbitrary and capricious under the Administrative Procedure Act.
However, notwithstanding that landmark decision in favor of the UC Regents, Attorney General Xavier Becerra, UC President Janet Napolitano, their lawyers, and Gov. Gavin Newsom continued to pursue and press the Gordon v. Regents of the University of California et al. state case. Each of these cases involving the UC Regents has the same underlying issues of constitutional law. However, they as the “state” knowingly and purposefully (in retaliation and bad faith) continued to violate my rights of due process and equal protection of the law guaranteed under the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Based on the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling, UCLA, the UC Regents, and the state of California—led by Gavin Newsom, the governor of California and an ex officio Regent—should have immediately settled this case on June 19, 2020, established the Jack Roosevelt “Jackie” Robinson Institute of Sports Management and committed to building the Jackie Robinson Stadium complex on Bruin Walk on the campus of UCLA.
If Gov. Gavin Newsom honestly believes that racism and discrimination impact the lives of millions of Californians every day, as he so forcefully and emotionally stated 21 days earlier, on May 29, 2020 he should have settled the case in that spirit.
My conciliatory letter dated July 31, 2020, (below) delivered to his then-chief of staff’s residence for him via FedEx on August 4, 2020, and also delivered to other decision-makers, certainly provided him the opportunity to lead and to live up to his lofty and emotional rhetoric of May 29, 2020.
