Candice Michelle Hardwick vs Latta High School / An Open Report

The ruling in the preliminary hearing of Hardwick was so outlandish that I had to continue to read it in hopes that I could find the Red Herring that led this Federal Court to it's decision.I already know that justice is not what one should look for in any of these proceedings in this arena, only precedence law can be the guiding force behind these decisions. The Honorable Attorney Kirk D. Lyons had more than admirably laid out the Castorina Case which clearly established that merely anticipation of disruption was not enough to ban the display of our Southern Cross. After reading the subjective affidavit of a Black student; Collette Hamlin who stated, "if the Confederate Flag is allowed to be displayed that there will be disruptions and inevitable altercations". None of this had ever occurred in the school, and clearly there was no objective evidence that it would. The Black President of the Student Body of Latta High, Angelica Akia Williams in her affidavit further offered subjective prejudice to the Court by stating that;" the Rebel Flag and it's past bring too much confusion and turmoil into schools". "Kids get offended by the Rebel Flag, and furthermore the wearing of the Flag will only bring more harm than good".

Before I challenge these two schools of thought that are coming from two children who have no proof to support their revelations, I must clearly point out that Ms. Hardwick placed before the Court a legal document in the form of a petition of signatures of support of her position from students of her school, both Black and White that the Court in it's decision refused to recognize.

It is too bad that Ms Williams in her capacity as Student Body President does not understand that she not only represents the Black Students of the School, but all. The Southern Flag should be in the school, and should be discussed. Ms. Williams and all those other students should asked the question especially today as they began to celebrate so called Black History Month; where are the names of those Black Confederates, their deeds, their reasons for standing beside their White families when all the able body men were away ? They should ask their Teachers, why would the former President of an NAACP Chapter march to the front door of their school dressed in the Southern Soldiers uniform, carrying his flag, proclaiming that he and his ancestors side by side his white family had earned a place of honor and dignity in defense of their Southern homeland under this banner. I proclaim to this young lady that the confusion is not by bringing the conversation of the flags past, or the flag to the school house door ; it is the planned confusion , distortions, and outright historical lies perpetrated by the Federal Public School System established in 1865, along with the so called Freedman's Bureau whose modus operandi was to divide and separate that supposedly freed African from the economic institution of slavery that the North, and entire civilized world, and those African Chieftains were clearly complicit in. Ms. Williams I presume does not know the questions that she and her peers should ask her teachers and administrators about that terrible conflict ; because to do so would lead to the understanding of the Morrill Tariff, the first 13th Amendment(granting of Slavery forever by her supposedly emancipator Lincoln), legalities of Secession, States Rights, the 10th Amendment, the Cherokee Declaration of Independence, and their Constitution and alliance with the South in lieu of their Treaty with the Federal Government of the North, the Union's total war policy on her ancestors and Ms Hardwick's, the illegitimate passage of the 14th Amendment, the Union League and the terror it wreaked upon her ancestors, and Ms Hardwick's, the period of so called Reconstruction and it's policy that continues to this day, and one by her very own actions and statements in her affidavit re-enforce that policy which had more to do with all the actions that separated us from the love and sense of family that existed between Black and White folks in the Southland America in lieu of the economic institution of slavery, and finally she would find herself studying the Slave Chronicles which offer a different perspective than the one she puts forward.

I would conclude that Ms.Williams and Ms. Hamlin offer the Red Herring that I looked so hard for. They like so many unsuspecting Blacks, to include the Officers of the NAACP who agreed to refill their depleted coffers by attacking our Southern Flag, are not only wrong in their assessment of our history, but also being used as pawns by the Federal Government in it's Courts and schools to indict our Honorable Southland and people in a manner in which they dare not do directly now, and would not do in any court of the land after the war. (treason trials.)

I sat in the court room in Knoxville, Tennessee in disgust as the stream of White liberal educators took the witness stand and presented their perspective of Black Southern thought as if it was pure truth, as they supported and covered up their actions as if they were truly Black. We as a people have been used for far too long to support the actions of the Northern liberal agenda to rid the South of it's Constitutional Interpretation , while covering up it's own war crimes, which include: murder of innocent men, women and children of all persuasions, plunder and stealing of both our fiscal resources, and worse of all the honor of our people, and the continued effort to divide and separate us with their actions.
