The Ali Shamsid-Deen Chronicles: Mayor Ditto had a slave-owner mentality

Hinds County Circuit Judge candidate Ali Shamsid-Deen: the gift that keeps giving. Here is another one of his columns filled with bombastic buffoonery as he compared then-Mayor Kane Ditto to a slave-owner. Par for the course in his Jackson Advocate columns from the 1990's. This one is from November 21, 1991 and shows just a little bit of anger towards the Mayor after he fired Police Chief David Walker:

"The catch phrase being promoted to our community by Jackson Mayor Kane Ditto and the rest of those people who have little real interest and no true concern for the African-American community is "it is time to get on with the healing".

"This phrase reminds me of the experiences of slavery that my grandmother used to relate to my brother and me about her parents who were slaves here in Mississippi.

One of the particular experiences was how the slaves were beaten if the slavemaster was not pleased with their performance. In addition to the beatings, salt was rubbed into the wounds, which increased the pain, but it promoted the healing of the wounds the slave owner thought.

This slave owner mentality seems to be very difficult for some caucasians to overcome. Most of us African Americans realize that slavery is long since over and we are demanding that causcasians understand that we will not take ause from them whether it is intentional or unintentional.

We are tired of caucasians treating us like they always know what is best for us regardless of how their decisions affect us.

Mayor Kane Ditto's attitude is typical of that slave-owner mentality. He is smart enough to realize that his political future in Jackson and indeed Hinds County depends upon how well he is perceived in the African American community. He is like the old slave owner who put African American overseer over the rest of the slaves because he thought that this would make the slaves work better for him."

You simply can not make this up. No spin doctor is needed, just put this stuff out there for everyone to read. The editor of the Clarion-Ledger is black but thinks whites are superior to blacks, the same newspaper uses "trusted negro intellectuals", he uses the N word repeatedly in a column, he says Jackson's government is a system of apartheid, says let the whites leave Jackson because all the good jobs are government jobs and they pay for themselves, and blacks who are friendly to whites "sell us out to white folks". Fit to be a Circuit Judge? I report, you decide.

IF, by chance, Ali Shamsid-Deen won this election for Hinds County Circuit Judge, would not his columns alone be basis for immediate appeal in cases over which he presides?

We should all be so luck to have Kane Ditto back in office. Sigh.

Walker was fired for homosexual acts in his office.

11:59, What do you base that on?

Kane Ditto was a GREAT Mayor.

Kingfish said...

Um, no he wasn't.

Kingfish, Educate us, please. What exactly made Ditto a less than great mayor? I'm being serious. I wasn't in Jackson then.

Since you weren't in Jackson then why does it matter?

As far as political savvy, Ali Shamsid-Deen is brilliant. This is the type of rhetoric that most
Jacksonians and allot of Hinds County voters love . Just look at Kenny Stokes and Chokwe Lumumba.
What else needs to be said ? I long for the day when Conservative African Americans of the metro and the entire county, finally gather enough
courage to stand up against their own Black political structure. ( The Black Caucus, NAACP, and too many so called "pastors" to mention ) .

I honestly believe a large portion of the Black Community realizes that the policies of the last 40-50 years have done more harm than good.
However, I think many Black Conservatives are scared to come "out of the closet" for all of the obvious reasons, ( ridicule, "Uncle Tom" analogies , ect. )

This article represents what I think we might face with Ali Shamsid-Deen, considering his mindset.


"In court, Williams told Assistant District Attorney Brian Catanzarite that he "for some reason comes up with I think ridiculous pleas whenever it's a young white guy," according to The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "I'm just telling you what my observation is. If this had been a black kid who did the same thing, we wouldn't be talking about three months' probation."

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.

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.
