The immediate object of Hour time now is to provide a fertile ground for black People to be able to do for self. And by any means necessary stop, the defamation and dehumanization of Black people. Our ultimate purpose is to secure justice and fair treatment to all of our people. And end forever unjust and unfair discrimination and ridicule of
Black people throughout the earth.

It has come to our attention that the Tennessee Branch of the Tea Party wants to Whitewash school textbooks even further in regards to the issues of slavery, the founding fathers and the treatment of our ancestors. We finds this conduct disrespectful and plain old downright nasty and vile! If this effort is successful then we know for a fact the next target will be the Native people, whom White people gave them the small pox disease using blankets as the Trojan horse, trying to wipe them out from the face of the earth. 

Even the United States government reported in the “Report on the Negro Family” done in 1965 stated” First, the racist virus in the American blood stream still afflicts us: Negroes will encounter serious personal prejudice for at least another generation. Second, three centuries of sometimes unimaginable mistreatment have taken their toll on the Negro people.” It goes further to state “The most perplexing question about American slavery, which has never been altogether explained, and which indeed most Americans hardly know exists, has been stated by Nathan Glazer as follows: "Why was American slavery the most awful the world has ever known?" The only thing that can be said with certainty is that this is true: it was.” "In Brazil, the slave had many more rights than in the United States: he could legally marry, he could, indeed had to, be baptized and become a member of the Catholic Church, his family could not be broken up for sale, and he had many days on which he could either rest or earn money to buy his freedom. The Government encouraged manumission, and the freedom of infants could often be purchased for a small sum at the baptismal. In short: the Brazilian slave knew he was a man, and that he differed in degree, not in kind, from his master."

"[In the United States,] the slave was totally removed from the protection of organized society (compare the elaborate provisions for the protection of slaves in the Bible), his existence as a human being was given no recognition by any religious or secular agency, he was totally ignorant of and completely cut off from his past, and he was offered absolutely no hope for the future. His children could be sold, his marriage was not recognized, his wife could be violated or sold (there was something comic about calling the woman with whom the master permitted him to live a 'wife'), and he could also be subject, without redress, to frightful barbarities — there were presumably as many sadists among slave-owners, men and women, as there are in other groups. The slave could not, by law, be taught to read or write; he could not practice any religion without the permission of his master, and could never meet with his fellows, for religious or any other purposes, except in the presence of a white; and finally, if a master wished to free him, every legal obstacle was used to thwart such action. This was not what slavery meant in the ancient world, in medieval and early modern Europe, or in Brazil and the West Indies.

This is nothing more than white guilt rearing its head. Without the institution of slavery and Native killing, there would be no America. Slaves built this country from nothing. Natives were killed to push the idea of Manifest destiny across the nation. Save for only a few founders, blood of slaves drenches the hands and bed chambers of these “Saintly” founding fathers. How would you explain the Louisiana Purchase without mentioning Haitians beating Napoleons Mighty army which made way for Jefferson to make said purchase; you cant.

This group is not a rogue group; the states of Texas and Virginia have already made moves to “Soften” history to make whites look less evil and basically relegate blacks to a footnote in American History. Without blacks, there would be no American history. Black people have spilt the same amount of blood as Whites for this Nation; even before it was a nation. White America knows the crimes that their for bearers have done and now, since we now have had a black man in the White house, they feel their debt is paid and the slate can be wiped clean; they are sadly mistaken.

Hour time now members and leadership board is shocked and appalled by the non-action of the Black community and people of good will to let this happen without a loud response. This case underscores the need for the Black community and people of good will to take the vanguard position and secure a truthful education based on actual facts, instead of lies.

The Initiative, spearheaded by Hour time now, and its members in Tennessee, is devoted to preventing and responding to race-motivated incidents and crimes, addressing the impact of these crimes on their victims and the community, and bringing the perpetrators of such crimes to justice.   

Hour time now is a lifetime leadership school. We've learned that together, we can make changes that can’t be made alone. Future generations will live and die by the decisions being made today; therefore we must have a very strong voice to direct those decisions in a way that is best for us all.
