DWI Trial Will Not Deter Adam Clayton Powell IV From Running For Rangel's SeatDear Lord, let it true. New York State Assemblyman Powell's DWI vs. Con Rangel's almost 30 year history of rape, pillage and looting Harlem...let's see.
The most evil thing to happen to Harlem was the stolen election from the people's champion in 1970, Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. to the capitalist tool Con Charles Rangel. The election process in Harlem is still so corrupt that in the 2008 primary in many neighborhood locations, now President Obama got ZERO votes. I still question the election results of 1994, when Assemblyman Powell ran for congress against the corrupt Con Rangel.
Congressman Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. was inspiring, helping folks lift themselves out of poverty. Under Rangle's Rule Harlem was a lock, probably to encourage folks to sell out. AIDS, crack/cocaine/heroin, disempowerment zone, 5 open sewers, warlike police force, etc. mark his reign. Doing nothing effective is doing something too. He helped transform Harlem into a place of shattered dreams.
It would be such poetic justice for former Congressman Powell's son, who has dedicated his life to serving Harlem anyway, won back the seat in his and his father's name.
Then, Harlem could be back on track as a location of dreams achieved, computers and all.
What happens to a dream achieved?
It doesn't dry up like a raisin in the sun
It doesn't fester like a sore and then run
It don't stink like rotten meat
It don't crust and sugar over like a syrupy sweet.
It don't sag like a heavy load.
It just explodes!
Run Adam Run. PLEASE.
