"Sometimes people try to destroy you, precisely because they recognize your power — not because they don’t see it, but because they see it and they don’t want it to exist."

In December of 2013, the GoodBlankets had called the police to their home after their son Mah-hi-Vist (18) had raised alarm after slipping into an Oppositional Defiant Disorder episode. “We called the police to protect him,” said his mother Melissa. “By the time the police had arrived he had calmed down and was in there with his girlfriend.”

…The [white] officers have claimed that Mah-hi-Vist had threatened officers with a knife and that they were forced to shoot him. The GoodBlankets say that the claims of officers do not reflect what they saw happen from their vantage point in the driveway where they say they could see in to the windows of the home. Custer County Sheriffs had been accompanied by two Oklahoma Highway Patrolmen in the final moments of Mah-hi-Vist’s as he was in the home with his girlfriend. Autopsy reports show that Mah-hi-Vist was shot 7 times, once in the head, and twice by a Taser gun.

…The officers were eventually cleared of any wrongdoing and returned to work after a short leave of absence. So when the Oklahoma Sheriff’s association chose Dillon Mach and Chance Avery to be recipients of the Medal of Honor “In recognition of (their) performance above and beyond the call of duty, while disregarding your own personal safety and exhibiting exceptional courage in a life threatening situation,” the parents of Mah-hi-Vist were angered. “It makes me think of the soldiers riding through Denver after Sand Creek,” said Wilbur GoodBlanket, the father of Mah-hi-Vist GoodBlanket. “It was like they were being recognized for shooting our son.”

Instead of just accepting the claims of officers the family has not let up on their efforts to seek justice for their son and have organized several rallies including one yesterday at the Oklahoma State capitol. “We appreciate any support that people may give and not just from Native people. We welcome support from all people and races,” said Melissa GoodBlanket. For more information on the efforts of the GoodBlanket family you can visit their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/TouchingCloudGoodblanket.

The term “Black” for our race is a confusing term. The term can be traced to the Kemetic word “Khem” or “Kham” (from which the Hebrews got “Ham.” However, Kham did not just mean the literal Black as it does in English, but of a range from literal Black, dark brown, to reddish brown. In other words, it was describing the dominate shades of the African race. We have to be careful using the English word “Black” because it clouds the reality that our race comes in various shades, most of which are not approaching a truly Black color. It also suggests that membership in our race is qualified by how close to a literal Black color we are. This is mythical, just as a brown haired European is not less European than a blond European.
Eurocentrics, in their cunning, have tried to describe the Reddish-brown skin, a frequently used color for skin in Kemet, as if it is not a shade in the pure Afrakan race. In fact, it is as common a shade in the indigenous African race as chocolate brown is.

Agree
