I wish that the term "Those Who Fail To Know Their History Are Doomed To Repeat It" had not been so contorted and hijacked into the fatalistic, cajoling warning that it has been used as during the post-Civil Rights era. This is a favorite phrase used by operatives who seek to prevent Black individuals from using our God given intelligence to make proper inferences about the world that is presented to us.
In the case of Brother Otis McDonald of Chicago (and his co-defendants) - he learned the hard way that:
- Street Pirates don't give a damn about fences around his property
- Street Pirates don't give a damn about burglar bars over every portal of his house
- Street Pirates don't give a damn about alarm systems
If an individual has some private property that the Street Pirate desires - the Street Pirate will steal it.
If that private owner stands in the way of the Street Pirate stealing this property - the Street Pirate is a violently natured man and he will kill the owner if it comes to it.
Mr Otis McDonald is a wise man.
He realizes that the theories that are articulated at One First Street N.E Washington, DC 20543 - does not necessary apply in the Southside of Chicago.
Mr. McDonald is a retired maintenance engineer who worked at the University of Chicago and has been a Chicago resident since 1952. In the 1960s, this Army veteran, who served in Germany and came home to raise a family in Chicago, was a pioneer in integrating his local union, rising through the ranks until he became head of his union local.
In addition to being a civil rights and union leader in the Chicago area, Mr. McDonald is also a community activist who has been threatened for his efforts to rid his neighborhood of drug dealers and other criminals. He owns a handgun, but cannot keep it inside the city because of the handgun ban.
