Death wish: How the war on drugs turned into massive black disenfranchisement, electing regressives
By Dennis Myers / Reno News & Review 11-3-2016

On Nov. 3 1868 in Louisiana, Republican J. Willis Menard defeated Democrat Caleb Hunt 64.32 to 35.68 percent, making Menard the first African American elected to the U.S. House, but Hunt challenged the result before the House, which refused to seat either candidate; in 1874, Pablo Laveaga of Humboldt County was elected Nevada’s first known Latino state legislator (he also later served as Humboldt County treasurer and was a Reno tavern owner); in 1908 in a referendum on whether to retain the state police force, created by the legislature to help break the unions in Goldfield, the force was retained by a vote of 9,954 to 9,078; in 1914, Nevadans voted 10,936 to 7,258 in favor of voting rights for women; in 1948 staffers of the Chicago Tribune, which had issued 150,000 copies of its “DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN” edition before receiving any vote returns, scrambled like crazy after radio reports of eastern returns showed a close race, sending distribution trucks and employees in their private cars into the street to get the copies back (many were hauled to the dump; one copy recently sold for $2,167); in 1953, episode 10 of season 6 of NBS’s Fireside Theater was “Man of the Comstock” by David Dortort (teleplay), Frank Wisbar (story), a script about a mining lawyer that Dortort later retooled into the series Bonanza; in 1964 on a pledge of no wider war in Vietnam, Lyndon Johnson was elected president over Barry Goldwater, 61.1 percent to 38.5 percent; in 1983, Jesse Jackson announced his candidacy for the presidency.

11-2-2016 — Déjà vu all over again and again

George Bush/November 2d 2000: "They want the federal government controlling Social Security like it’s some kind of federal program."

On this date in 1863, the first Nevada Constitutional Convention began; in 1880, the morning Nevada State Journal waved the bloody shirt on that day’s election: “Every traitor who shot bullets at Union soldiers in the late war, will vote for [Democratic presidential nominee Winfield] Hancock, and the loyal men who received them in their bodies, and who yet live will vote for [Republican nominee James] Garfield” (Nevada was apparently loaded with traitors, since Hancock won the state); in 1916, women’s leaders in Nevada were touting the slogan they were using in their drive to defeat Woodrow Wilson for reelection—”He kept us out of suffrage.”; in 1918, Theodore Roosevelt, the frontrunner for the 1920 Republican presidential nomination, spoke to a Negro war relief rally at Carnegie Hall, calling for equal civil rights (a policy he never advocated as president), his last public appearance before his death; in 1920, KDKA in Pittsburgh reported the results of the Harding/Cox presidential race in the first radio broadcast; in 1936, three days before the election, the massive Literary Digest poll came out, with Alf Landon leading Franklin Roosevelt 1,293,669 to 972,897 (the poll showed 1,003 Nevadans supporting Landon to 955 for Roosevelt); in 1967, on the second day of a two-day gathering of President Johnson’s elite group of advisors known as “the wise men” (Dean Acheson, George Ball, General Bradley, McGeorge Bundy, Clark Clifford, Arthur Dean, Douglas Dillon, Abe Fortas, Averill Harriman, Henry Cabot Lodge Jr., Robert Murphy and Maxwell Taylor), the group told Johnson to stay the course in Vietnam but do a better job of public relations (eight months later the same group told Johnson the war was a failure and he should disengage as best he could); in 1982, Harry Reid of Las Vegas was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives; in 2004, Illinois state Senator Barack Obama was elected to the United States Senate over Republican Alan Keyes with a 43 percent victory margin.

Franklin Roosevelt/November 1, 1940: "Whoever seeks to set one religion against another seeks to destroy all religion."

On Nov. 1, 1890 the Second Mississippi Plan, a group of legal mechanisms for removing African Americans from the political process—including a poll tax, a literacy requirement, and an “understanding” clause—was approved, spreading to other states and also excluding poor whites (the First Mississippi Plan was the use of massive violence and brutality); in 1918, with Nevada Democrats questioning his patriotism in his U.S. Senate race—he voted against entry into the world war—U.S. Representative Edwin Roberts was running ads in the state to defend himself while he was in D.C. as the war wound down; in 1942, Negro Digest began publication; in 1945, Ebony magazine was founded; in 1951, Jet magazine began
publication.

Editor's note: At the 2015 Reno-Sparks NAACP Freedom Fund Awards Banquet, News Editor Dennis Myers accepted the Inaugural Eddie Scott/Bertha Woodard Human Rights Advocacy Award on behalf of the editors, journalists and staff of the Reno News & Review for their internationally recognized work on police-involved homicides (Fatal Encounters), their viral exposé of Nevada State Assembly Speaker-designate Ira Hansen, R-Sparks, and When Hate Comes to Town, a history of area hate crimes.

NAACP endorses closing gun show background check loophole

Reno, Nev. (8 Sept. 2016) — At its regularly scheduled monthly meeting, the Reno-Sparks NAACP unanimously endorsed passage of statewide Question One on the November ballot. The measure would require background checks on all firearm purchases made at the state's many gun shows.

The Branch allowed fair presentation of both sides of the issue. At its overflowing Police and Guns Forum on July 14, Washoe County Sheriff Chuck Allen presented the pro-gun/anti-background check point of view. Most of those voting on Sept. 8 were present in July.

The members were informed that the national NAACP platform on criminal justice calls for universal background checks (1, 2), and that the Nevada balloting addresses only a portion of gun sales.

Question One is not be confused with Washoe County's Question WC-1 which would raise sales taxes for school construction and maintenance. WC-1 would apply solely to Reno-Sparks-Washoe K-12 schools, where the background checks question applies statewide.

   2. NAACP National Legislative Priorities for the 114th Congress (2015-16) at page 8.

On Sept. 7, 1972, on the first day of school, Clark County superintendent of schools (and future Republican governor) Kenny Guinn was forced to cancel elementary school “until further notice” after a group of parents won a court order halting implementation of an integration plan. Nevada Attorney General (and future Republican governor) Robert List and school district lawyer Robert Petroni melodramatically flew to Washington to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to halt the integration plan, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund entered the case against List and Petroni, and protest marches were held on the Las Vegas strip, at the county courthouse and in the downtown casino district.


On Sept. 3, 1906, four years before the “great white hope” fight in Reno, African-American Joe Gans triumphed over Oscar “Battling” Nelson in a brutally hot fight (Gans entered the ring carrying an umbrella) in Goldfield.

Muhammad Ali, 1942-2016

Sahara Tahoe, Stateline, Nevada (21 November 1972) — In what would be his only northern Nevada match, Muhammad Ali squares off against world Light-Heavyweight Champion Bob Foster for the North American Boxing Federation heavyweight title. The referee is future Washoe County DA and District Judge Mills Bee Lane in his first championship fight. Former Golden-Glover Lane (20-1) achieved his own world fame, officiating at dozens more championship bouts. He starred in his own nationally-syndicated television show, Judge Mills Lane, for three years. Ali knocked out Foster in the eighth round but not before Foster became the first opponent to open a cut on the prettiest one's face. For many years thereafter, Lane gave away copies of the above photo taken by then-TV reporter, now longtime Reno-Sparks Branch member and retired attorney David Kladney.
FROM JOURNALIST DENNIS MYERS' DAILY POOR DENNY'S ALMANAC

Wednesday, 29 June 2016 07:48:51 PDT

George Bush/June 29 2006: I’ve reminded the prime minister—the American people, Mr. Prime Minister, over the past months that it was not always a given that the United States and America would have a close relationship."

On this date in 1835, slaveowner William Travis raised a company of 25 men to fight for independence for northern Mexico because of the new Mexican constitution’s abolition of slavery; [EDITOR'S NOTE: Travis and his pro-slavery followers, including Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie, died at the Alamo]; in 1906, Anazasi ruins at Mesa Verde were declared a national park; in 1940, Dick Grayson’s family of high wire artists were killed by mobsters and Dick became Bruce Wayne’s ward; in 1944, the “liberty ship” H.G. Blasdel (named for Nevada’s first elected governor) was in convoy EMC 17 on its way to Omaha Beach when it was torpedoed by the German submarine U-984 about thirty miles south of the Isle of Wight (the liberty ships were rapidly built, mass-produced emergency ships constructed to a standard design from prefabricated pieces, called the “ugly ducklings” by President Franklin Roosevelt); in 1964, syndicated columnist Joseph Alsop published a column that sought to blame the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee—a major arm of the civil rights movement—for the murder of the Mississippi Burning three: “Provoking the military occupation of [the south] is in fact the avowed aim of John Lewis, leader of the Students [sic] Non-Violent Co-ordinating Committee…The organizers who send these young people into Mississippi must have wanted, even hoped for martyrs. And now, alas, they have got what they wanted.”; in 1992, a 5.6 earthquake occurred on a previously unknown fault at Little Skull Mountain, 12 miles from Yucca Mountain in Nye County; in 2009, President Obama held a reception commemorating the Stonewall riots and urged his gay supporters to judge him “not by promises I’ve made but by the promises that my administration keeps” (in the audience was Lt. Col. Victor Fehrenbach, an Air Force officer facing discharge after someone informed his superiors that he is gay).

On June 28, 1914, exiled heavyweight champion Jack Johnson successfully defended his title against Frank Moran at the Velodrome d’Hiver in Paris. On June 28, 1971, four years after Muhammad Ali refused to be drafted and one year after it heard the case, the U.S. Supreme Court with its usual promptness overturned his conviction. (Editor's note: Ali said he patterned his boxing style after Johnson.)

Opposition to cutting phone service to the poor and elderly
Public Utilities Commission of Nevada Docket No. 16-03021

As it has been trying in other states, AT&T wants to remove itself as telephone provider of last resort, reasoning that wireless Internet will serve everyone. Not so. Many rural residents, lower income people and senior citizens have no cel-phone or wireless web service. Cable TV-based phone service goes down when cable goes down and thus crashes 911. This proposal will make the low-income LIFELINE RATE a thing of the past. Enabling legislation was lobbied under the radar in the 2013 Nevada Legislative Session. I move that the Branch oppose removing AT&T as provider of last resort and support repeal of Assembly Bill 486 of the 2013 Legislative Session.

— Passed unanimously at the general membership of the Reno-Sparks NAACP on May 12, 2016.

This victory to expand and protect voter enfranchisement regardless of income is thus very welcome news. I would like to thank former Reno-Sparks Branch president Lonnie Feemster for all his hard work in making this settlement possible.” [READ MORE ABOUT IT]
