FROM RODNEY KING TO OBAMA - CAN WE ALL GET ALONG?
Yes, but equality can only be accomplished through responsible parenting and education. (6/18/2012)
On March 2, 1991, police in Los Angeles arrested Rodney King for speeding while intoxicated. King resisted arrest, and then was shot with a taser, and repeatedly beaten and kicked while he was on the ground. The beating was filmed and broadcast on TV. On April 29, 1992, three police officers were acquitted for the beating, and nationwide rioting then ensued. My older son was walking home from Alameda High shortly after the riots began. A number of African Americans jumped him and started to beat him, but fortunately some motorists stopped their cars and drove off the attackers. By the time it was all over, there were 53 dead, 2,383 injured, more than 7,000 fires, damages to 3,100 businesses, and nearly $1 billion in financial losses. Mr. King then asked, "Can we all just get along?" In attempting to answer that question, many white Americans voted for Barack Obama in 2008, but since assuming office he has taken racial relations to lows not seen since the start of the Civil Rights Movement.
Figure 1A above: The 4th lowest skip of RODNEY KING is encoded at the same absolute skip as OBAMA, but in the opposite direction. The two are connected by words of hatred. All three figures in this article refer to smiting and are reminiscent of the beating that King received in 1991. Figure 1B shifts the focus up and to the left to reveal ROMNEY.
And [God] had caused the cursing to come upon them, yea, even a sore cursing, because of their iniquity. For behold, they had hardened their hearts against him, that they had become like unto a flint; wherefore, as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people, the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them. And thus saith the Lord God; I will cause that they shall be loathsome unto thy people, save they shall repent of their iniquities." (2 Nephi 5:21)
Figure 2 below: This matrix is based on the lowest skip for RODNEY KING. Two letters to the right of his name in the open text is I HAD PUT FORTH MY HAND AND SMITTEN YOU AND YOUR PEOPLE.
On Figure 2 above the axis term is the lowest ELS of RODNEY KING. Since his beating and its broadcast were what set off the 1992 riots, the primary a-priori key word sought was a form of smite, which means (among other things) to strike or hit hard, with or as with the hand, a stick, or other weapon. King was repeatedly hit with police sticks. The riots started in part because African Americans believed that such brutality is often inflicted on them, although the police in Tampa, Florida acted likewise (though not for as long) on my white (Christian) brother-in-law when he was stopped in similar fashion. In the open text is I had put forth my hand and smitten you and your people. There were many such meetings with this term found in association with 17 encodings of Rodney King. For example, on the 7th lowest skip of Rodney King (at skip 14,050) we find a word (spelled lamed hey lamed vav mem) that means smite at skip -14,050 in a 20-column by 16 row matrix (320 letters) with the axis term. And again, on the 14th lowest skip of Rodney King (at skip 109,873) we find the same word that means smite at skip 109,873 in a 36-column by 8 row matrix (288 letters) with the axis term. The odds against a form of smite, smitten, or struck being on Figure 2 in the open text were about 31 to 1.
Figure 3 below: This matrix is only based on the 12th lowest skip of RODNEY KING. Some of the words that were in the open text are repeated here, but this time as a 7-letter ELS meaning AND SMITTEN YOU. The word for RIOTS is at an ELS.
On Figure 3 I found that when I went to search for the part of Exodus 9:15 shown on Figure 2, I had put forth my hand and smitten you and your people, that the full verse did not come up in the cross print, but part of the verse (AND SMITTEN YOU) came up parallel to RODNEY KING. The phrase AND SMITTEN YOU is 7 letters. It's rare to have an a-priori term this long come up parallel to the axis term in a box that requires only 4 columns by 24 rows (96 letters) to show. The full 288-letter Figure 3 also includes an ELS of RIOTS. The odds against finding such a match by this, the 12th lowest ELS of RODNEY KING, were about 11,700 to 1.
There were many fascinating matrices that I found about King, including several that mentioned a death by drowning. Why so many? Perhaps because his life touched (and in many cases, ended) the lives of so many other people. It's about 351 miles from where King was beaten at Foothill Blvd and Osborne St. in Lake View Terrace Los Angeles to Park Street in Alameda, CA where my son was attacked. Fortunately, my son escaped uninjured, but again there were 53 people who died in the rioting (mostly in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Atlanta), with another 2,383 injured.
Why did he bring so much mysery to the world before settling down shortly before his death? According to Wikipedia, his parents were married, but his father died at the age of 42. The man that the police beat so brutally was not so innocent. Besides being drunk while speeding, and resisting arrest, his previous record was that in November 1989, he robbed a store in Monterey Park, California. There he threatened to hit the Korean store owner with an iron bar he was carrying, then hit him with a pole. King stole two hundred dollars in cash during the robbery, and was caught, convicted, and sentenced to two years of imprisonment and released after only serving a year of the two-year sentence.
As we saw above in Figures 1A and 1B, Rodney King is encoded at the same absolute skip as Obama. When Obama took office, although I distrusted him greatly, I also had hope that he would bring the right kind of change, change that meant African Americans would start taking education (without affirmative action that hurts and alienates whites) and 2-married parent families seriously. There is no sign that either has occurred yet. As of 2012, the percent of babies born out of wedlock was as follows: Whites - 29%, Latinos 53% and Blacks 73%. Without effective father figures to emulate, two terrible effects will continue: (1) Too many blacks will break the law and be thrown into prison, as the chart below indicates, and (2) too many white police officers will fear blacks and respond with more force than is often required when making arrests. Rodney King asked, "Can we all just get along?" The answer is yes, but only when the black community cleans up its act and stops looking for special treatment.
