1 pointFormer convict weaves personal experience into new urban fiction novel Reico Cranshaw’s “Black September” delivers a graphic portrait of corruption, drugs and the thieving practices of religious administration in the White House Chicago,Illinois (04/5/2013) – Before the al-Qaida terrorist network became a blip on watchdogs' radar screens, high-ranking leaders of the infamous El Rukn street gang reached out to buy rocket launchers as part of a plot to commit terrorist acts in the United States for Libya in exchange for cash. As a result, many members were convicted and sent to prison. However, one of those El Rukns, Reico Cranshaw, has written one of the most fascinating gang stories with global reach. Cranshaw gives the large picture of gang life in America. The El Rukns’ allies, the Vice lords, and the Zionist are part of the drug trafficking in America. The connection comes to light from the story of Vice Lord drug dealer Chauncey Carr. Chauncey is reaping millions as an unknowing pawn of right-wing lobbyist and Christian Zionist operatives, who supplies him with unlimited amounts of cocaine. His suppliers are using the profits to pay for Israeli-spawned terrorist attacks. But it doesn’t take long for FBI agent John O’Neill to catch Chauncey trafficking drugs, which results in Chauncey being sentenced to federal prison. While in prison,Chauncey meets a convicted terrorist, and despite his dislike for him, he uses the relationship to get his sentenced reduced by passing information on to O’Neill—but the FBI agent is killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, leaving Chauncey in prison. He spends the ensuing years writing about his time spent with crooked DEA agent and Zionist, Dikko Katsa, who tipped off his close friends and cocaine field owners, Wally and his family, so that they were able to clean up the lab before DEA agents showed up. Upon his release, Chauncey travels to see his son after hearing he has joined Chauncey’s old gang. On the bus he meets feminist poet, Tina, who shares similar dreams of publishing someday, and they begin planning a better future together. Their plans are suddenly threatened, however, when Chauncey becomes the hunted after Wally learns he is sharing information with federal agents and vows to stop at nothing to silence him forever. Cranshaw infuses his real life experiences with the fictional story of Chauncey Carr to show readers the truth behind the world of gangs and terrorists, and hopes his story illustrates the reality of gang life and what it’s like behind bars. “Black September” is available for sale in bookstores, online at Amazon.com and other channels.http://www.amazon.com/Black-September-Reico-Cranshaw/dp/1477527516/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1364936029&sr=8-1&keywords=reico+cranshaw+black+september About the Author: Reico Cranshaw spent decades in prison before learning that the written word held the power to heal. He spent years in solitary confinement and looked to books to keep him from going crazy. When the prison guards were unable to fulfill his requests because he had read through every book in the prison library, Cranshaw began to write. He then penned “Black September” (ISBN 1477527516), after being released from prison. .
1 point@anika99 thanks for posting the video. This guy scares me because it seems he is a ruse, a plant, a troll. Across the Internet, there are many so-called “Black commentators” who are actually underwritten by racist, white conservative groups. This is made clear to me from viewing his web site where he take extreme, right wing, conservative view on every issue, every issue. For example, in the first article, he calls the Palestinian Authority a terrorist group, which is odd for a person of color because any reasonable analysis of the current Palestinian situation shows that the U.S. gives Israel $2 billion a year to maintain an apartheid system against people of color. Second he seems to echo the talking points of the right wing, conservative media with his references to Jesse Jackson, Sharpton, and Ann Coulter. That he alludes to Ann Coulter is indicting for me that he is right wing nut job. In fact go to any conservative web site and you will read/hear the same comments about Jackson and Sharpton and Dr. King. This is a standard, longstanding ploy by conservative media to discredit any black leader, real or imagined. And I would agree with @Troy that he does not offer an alternative voice because if you are getting information and “truth” from corporate-controlled media, be it Fox, MSNBC, CBS, etc., you are getting narrow viewpoints. Finally, as I empirical rule, I immediately disregard anyone who calls people stupid and ignorant when they have survived 300-plus years of slavery, oppression, Jim and Jane Crow, racism, discrimination, etc. I voted for Obama, sure, but what other choice did I have with the rigged two-party electoral system? And I always vote because people died to secure that right? There will never be real choice until there are one or two more political parties in America. To be sure, Obama has been disappointing. But there are more reasonable, nuanced, thoughtful criticism elsewhere, seemingly anyplace else as it seems that indeed common sense bypassed this charlatan. One, of many, good places to get smart, reasonable takedowns of Obama Administration policies is at http://blackagendareport.com/ There you will get fact not irrational, immature, disrespectful rants.
