Freedom is Power!

June 30, 2015

The 13th 14th and 15th amendments to the U.S. constitution have were founded in the words of Black / African-American colonial leader and scholar Benjamin Banneker. Therefore – together they are the rightfully The Benjamin Banneker – Freedom Amendments of 1870, and they are not to be stolen from black foundation of America.

UNDER THE RADAR….

RICO oriented colleges in Boston are giving a dis-service to Black students/scholars.

RACKETEERING, CHEATING and INFLUENCE IN BOSTON…often seen as the most racist city in America…SMOOTH CRIMINALS at The BAC.

A lack of focus by Boston Globe staff, columnists, writers and journalists leaves the most racist college Boston – The Boston Architectural College/the center of racism, racketeering and misconduct in Boston free of criticism as other schools colleges and universities are being labeled or stereotyped as racist or non-diverse for black students. The racially problem plagued and dysfunctional Boston Architectural College (which should be closed down) is still failing to ensure that the past/present black student population are not being cheated out of due process toward receiving their degree(s) and advancing onto their professional ambitions/fields of business without being undermined, degraded, marginalized and detoured from their ambitions though various forms of covert or hidden racism.

A Sanctuary for Racism? The Segregated Boston Architectural Center/ (College of misconduct and racial prejudice)

What time is it? Sign of the times: It’s time to clean-up The Boston Architectural Center (old boys club) / The center of racism and hostile activity against black achievers in Boston

In Boston Architecture must be a Racket for criminal activity / racketeering, preferential treatment, promotion of a white-only policy of advertizement and degrading treatment of Black-American alumni?

The negative forces opposed/against Doing the Right Thing and DARK SIDE Architectural – Organizations such as Ted Landsmark & The Boston Architectural / Apartheid Center/school must be brought to justice.

Doing the Wrong Thing: The BAC – Boston Architectural Center (of racism) fails to “do the right thing”! The BAC has failed to promote the image of Black/African-American student-architects and other minorities on huge building/wall advertisement.

Unwelcoming to Black Americans: Since the racial issues/problems and challenges of the all-white is right 1980’s and after over 20-30 years of struggle for progress for diversity and acceptance there is still “No change and No Representation” for the promotion/advertisement of the image of Black Americans at the BAC – Boston Architectural Center (of racism)/night school continues to advance a white-only policy of promotion/advancement & marketing by hanging a huge white-only student advertisement.

The negative/dark-leadership forces opposed/against Doing the Right Thing and DARK SIDE FORCES of Rouge-Unjust Architectural – Organizations such as Ted Landsmark & The Boston Architectural / Apartheid Center/school must be brought to justice or shut down/abolished.

ENDING RACISM IN BOSTON: Black American issues must be included and resolved not excluded and dismissed by architectural educational institutions

Protest and rally against racist building poster/banner-advertisement, institutional misconduct and deception/fraudulence at the segregated Boston Architectural Night-College/ center that promotes a white-only image and vision and architecture and the city of Boston.

We need to change the architecture business /professional and industry by not promoting the same white-only images that were prevalent during the 1980s. The time for critical address and change has come and we cannot let deviant-escapist/racist culture continue to dominate the future of Boston and America.

We need to end racism in Boston by targeting racist institutions that promote hidden subliminal racist advertisement /propaganda and marketing that promotes a white-only image/vision of architecture and the city of Boston. Our passive Mayor Menino is blind to the facts of racism in Boston as well as BAC president Ted Landsmark.

Therefore we the people and leadership of Black Boston must protest against racist activities at problematic, dysfunctional/racist, predominately white-elitist institutions such as The Boston Architectural Night-College/ center of (new form) racism in Boston.

We must be active in emphasizing that hidden and subliminal/covert racism is unacceptable, and covering-up racist hostile, prejudiced acts of misconduct by staff/faculty and administration will not be tolerated.

We must Change the negative-abusive/racist culture at problematic educational institutions such as the (racist) Boston Architectural Night-School /College and therefore address the failed leadership of racist and prejudiced institutions & organizations around Boston by asking the failed leaders often token Black Americans such as Ted Landmark to step down, resign and make room for new leadership, new direction and new vision.

Failed Black Lawyer Ted Landsmark fails to address racial discrimination/oppression and abuse of Black Alumni/students (graduates) at the all- white only educational institution called the Boston Architectural College/Center. Over the present and past years The BAC now defined themselves as The BAC Boston Apartheid Center of racism, discrimination and abuse has continued to promote the white only image and vision of architectural student/professionals,achievers and varous building advertisements and huge building posters.

Boycott The BAC!!

The BAC and the AIA continue fail in addressing and promoting diversity/Black/Americans in Architecture over the past 30 years.

“False/over-promoted black people/professionals (tokens) cannot change the face of Architecture”

Joseph Edgecombe, Architectural Scholar/Educator-Professional, Leader

BAC President fails to address oversight issues regarding Black student/alumni(graduates)/professionals Ted Landsmarks oversights led to the hanging/promotion of a racist building poster/banner-advertisement, much due to institutional misconduct and deception/fraudulent that has been going on for many years/recent past – at the segregated Boston Architectural Night-College/ center that continually promotes – a white-only image and vision and architecture and the City of Boston.

Exposure Architecture –“Save The Institute” is about the protest and affairs regarding the demolition/razing of the John D. O’bryant African-American Institute at Northeastern University in Boston. The students protest regarding the plans the University had to demolish the Institute/Center rose to the level of various affairs in the media/press. As in the case of various urban/community-neighborhood developments where local concerned residents/activist play a major part in voicing urgent concerns about a proposed project — The same was true for Northeastern Universities Black student population.

“BAC President Ted Landsmark is not an Architect” and therefore not qualified to represent the struggle of the Black American architectural students and/or aspiring architectural/business professionals.
  • He has not faced stonewalling/institutional racism and deceptive tactics that Black/African-Americans and other Urban/Minority groups face in the white -only- elitist/racist field as architecture or biased/ white-dominated educational institutions of architectural education.
Ted Landsmark – an unqualified outsider/non-architect fails to address race and diversity issues (of) and the problems regarding the advancement & promotion of Black/African-Americans and other Urban/Minority groups.
  • Ted Landsmark is not an Architect, although he  has been promoted in the architectural area/education he in not an Architect, he is an outsider,
  • He has never worked in an architect’s office or any other related architecture/design engineering work/office-professional area, and as well he holds no credit or zero credit/status with NCARB/AIA in Washington DC,
  • He has never completed any internship-training/study-certificate towards becoming an architect and…
  • He has never filed any credit towards becoming an architect or towards working in the architectural/related field therefore he is a complete outsider who lacks work experience, background,  professional and/or intern – apprentice credit.
Ted Landmark therefore he lacks the knowledge and education  of the experience  of the need and issues of black architects and aspiring/younger black architects/students, interns, graduates and pre-graduates who are facing race and diversity issues and problems in educational institution that are based on the  white icon/ white – only model of the white American architect/propaganda.
 
Slightly related education/experience is completely unacceptable therefore he never should have been considered for – or given any position at all in the architectural field/education or organization especially if it is a work/study related area (such as the BAC).
 
In conclusion it is quite easy to state that Ted Landsmark is definitely not qualified to handle the responsibility of the needs and concerns of  aspiring Black- American architectural professionals because he is not a part of the architectural community, as an outsider he is completely disconnected from the critical issues of architectural advancement/promotion of the Black-American architect or aspiring experienced /emerging architect of color – because he does not have any experience working in the architectural business/for white-dominated architectural/related firms.
 
To cover-up and not expose the fact that he/Ted Lansmark is not an architect would be a crime. There is a huge difference between and outsider like Lansmark who is not an architect and Black Americans who have studied worked and sacrificed for many years in a white-only/dominated profession to become an architect or to work in architectural related business, firms or organization.
 
He has been given his time as an unqualified-outsider/token-black and the time has now come for him to step down, resign and make way for new leadership.
 
 Sherry Snipes of the AIA is not and Architect or a trained/educated architecturel professional.
  •  Sherry Snipes is not an Architect, although she  has been promoted in the architectural area/diversity she in not an Architect, she is an outsider,
  • She has never worked in an architect’s office or any other related architecture/design engineering work/office-professional area, and as well she holds no credit or zero credit/status with NCARB/AIA in Washington DC,

  • She has never filed any credit towards becoming an architect or towards working in the architectural/related field therefore he is a complete outsider who lacks work experience, background,  professional and/or intern – apprentice credit.
 
 Whitney Young Jr., executive director of the National Urban League in the late 1960s is” Not an Architect”.
  •  Whitney Young Jr is not an Architect, although he  has been promoted in the architectural area/info. he in not an Architect, he is an outsider,
