Presidente Carlos Moore

Carlos the Clown is actually running for President of the National Bar Association.  NBA is a national association for black lawyers.  Mr. Moore started his "Stay Woke" campaign with this message to the Magnolia Bar:


Dear friend,

Just this morning I was speaking with some African-American gentlemen in their 60s who would have grown up in the turbulent 1950's and 1960's. I was commenting on how bad things are in Mississippi and across the country now. It seems as if race relations are at an all time low and that hate is at an all time high. In the last 15 days in Mississippi alone, a sitting member of the state House of Representatives, Karl Oliver, publicly stated on Facebook that those Louisiana leaders responsible for the removal of the four Confederate monuments in New Orleans should be "LYNCHED", a young black man in Jackson was found hanging from a tree in his back yard, and I have started representing an African-American family against the Rankin County School District over a white teacher caught on video telling a white student to let a black student hit him so that they could "hang" the black student. Any one of these incidents standing alone is horrific and outrageous but taken together lets me know we have an epidemic on our hands. It is time for us to awaken from our slumber as a people and as the National Bar Association and to be ever vigilant.

While things are bad now, according to the older African-American men I spoke with this morning, they have been much worse. History has a way of repeating itself and each of us must make up in our minds that we are not going back to the Jim Crow era of the 1950's and 1960's. I am bound and determined that it will not happen under my watch. That is one reason I am running to become the 76th President of the National Bar Association. Our people are yearning for a voice. It is time for the sleeping giant to awake and stay woke as if our very lives and way of life depend on it. The stories I heard this morning are too horrific to repeat but they emboldened me to continue to fight to make not only Mississippi a better state but this entire country a more just and perfect union. We owe it to our children and successive generations to give it our all and continually strive for equality and justice for all mankind.

Please join me on my Stay Woke campaign. I hope to see you in Toronto and I hope to earn your vote on August 1st for President-Elect of the National Bar Association. For me, this is not a game. I take being a Civil Rights attorney and social justice advocate very seriously. I am passionate about making a difference and decrying injustice any and everywhere. Remember, let's awake and stay woke!

Best,

Carlos E. Moore
President-Elect Candidate, 2017

As for that "hanging from a tree", the Clarion-Ledger reported this news from JPD:
 
Officials are calling the death of a 22-year-old black man found hanging from a tree in Jackson's Washington Addition neighborhood a suicide.

Jackson Police Department Cmdr. Tyree Jones told reporters officers found the body at 1 a.m. Monday after an unidentified caller requested JPD make a welfare check at the Topp Avenue residence. The man, whom JPD would not identify, was found in the backyard.

Jones said officers found no evidence of foul play and ruled the death a suicide. He would not delve into evidence or facts uncovered in the investigation.

"We don't look forward to charging anyone with his death," Jones said just before refusing to go into detail about folks questioned throughout the investigation.

"There were also claims that his hands were seen tied behind his back or possibly in front of him. I can refute that at this particular time. There is no evidence of such," Jones said, referencing claims circulating primarily on social media.

"If there's any other information or evidence that anyone may have to make us believe that it may not be a suicide, again, we're open to any information and any evidence to aid us in the investigation. But as of right now, we don't have anything other than the fact that his death has been ruled a suicide," Jones said.

The National Bar Assn. is meeting in Toronto?

This guy is as low as a lawyer can get. Seeking fame and fortune through lies and misdirection. Can the bar association not step up and censure these types? It almost seems criminal the things this clown does.

What's the name of the national associate for white attorneys? Oh...wait... that's right; there isn't one.

As someone who is seeking to represent the Magnolia Bar Association, it may be prudent for Mr. Moore to consider hiring an editor/proofreader prior to sending out any future statements. Having someone on his team who can help with messaging definitely would not hurt.

The name of the bar association for white attorneys is the American Bar Association. Founded in 1878 the ABA did not admit it's first Black member until 1948. 95% of it's membership is White, 99% of it's historic leadership has been white. Nuff said.

The ABA held their 2011 Annual Meeting in Toronto.

When did the NBA admit it's first White member? What percentage of it's membership is Black, what percentage of it's historic leadership has been black?

Curious about the claim against Rankin County School District. Anyone have any info. I am typically in the loop in Rankin County and have heard nothing of the sort. Is this another made up Carlos Moore story to further agenda?

Being "woke" is nothing new, once upon a time it was "tune in, turn on, and drop out" and "don't trust anyone over 30."

Carlos has found the real shortcut to fame and "leadership" which he so desperately
desires. If he continues to practice law he will ultimately reveal himself as an incompetent loud mouth. But, if he can get a forum outside Mississippi he can easily convince people "up north" that Mississippi is still practicing slavery and he's the modern Nat Turner. They'll believe it. They will believe damn near anything bad about Mississippi. That's the ticket Carlos. Keep pluggin'

2:30. Minorities have their own bar associations because in the past they were barred directly or indirectly from membership in the American Bar Association. There's also the Korean American Bar Association, Native American Bar Association, Hispanic National Bar Association, the Cardozo Society, National Asian Pacific American Bar Association, South Asian Bar Association and many other bar associations that represent minority populations in America. Please don't sneer at the organizations just because they aren't the ABA.

7:32 : The short, easy and incorrect answer would be lack of education (a real yet secondary reason); but a fuller and more nuanced answer can be found here:

Sorry for the reading requirement but I've been told that educated people find reading pleasurable, unless of course, the reading does not agree with their world and life view. Just sayin!

8:31, he has a black student that claims that a white substitute teacher made a racist remark to him. No one else heard it.

7:43 Please tell us the things you know to back up your invective re: Attorney May. Sounds like all 0f need to be educated in order to protect the re-arisen Confederacy.

F mickns said...

7:32 The NBA members are called "owners" and from day one, they have always been 99.9999 percent white. I believe only Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson have small ownership stakes in the NBA brotherhood of owners.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
