Political Prisoner


THE VISION

In the beginning of the early 1990’s, Mr. Hoover reached out to the streets from his prison cell and shared his vision to the prisoners of the ghetto.  His vision was spoken through a book called “The Blueprint of a New Concept – From Gangster Disciple to Growth and Development” by Roderick L. Emery, Sr.  The Blue Print of a New Concept was written and completed by 1990, but was later revised in 1996 for the people to view.  Here’s a brief synopsis of Mr. Hoover’s vision from those who were looking for positive Growth and Development.

THE BLUEPRINT OF A NEW CONCEPT

“…The vision is for us to acquire marketable skills that will provide us with a legal avenue of financial support.  The Vision dictates that we learn the political process of our community and become involved to the extent of having a voice in our destiny; that we conduct ourselves in a manner that is compatible to our community; that we frown upon the senseless rape, robbery, burglary, theft and murder that is rampant in our community; that we establish ourselves in business that is an asset to ourselves as well as to our community that we set examples that will make it safe for our youth to be part of us; and ultimately, that we eliminate the awesome rate of recidivism that is the experience of a large portion of our youth.”
             
“The Vision is that we dedicate ourselves to a war on illiteracy; that we pursue professional business careers such as accounting, drafting, computer science, business management, etc; that we master the trades of industry such as brick masonry, building and road construction, textiles, machine shop, surveying, welding, etc., that we acquire knowledge and expertise in areas that are needed in our community, such as plumbing, carpentry, building management and maintenance, auto body repairs, auto mechanic, etc., that we prepare ourselves to become small business administrators in areas such as grocery stores, clothing stores, hardware’s, entertainment (lounges and dance halls), distributors of general household merchandise, etc., that we amass credentials such as certificates, diplomas and degrees as a statement to our desire to excel positively; that we expand our views to include the educational, economical, political and social realities of society; that we began to value the positive implications of righteous endeavors.”

INMATES CALL FOR ACTION
The current state of affairs within Minority communities in general and African American in particular are deplorable and totally unacceptable.  There cannot be one among you that is not dissatisfied with conditions as they exist.

As an elder statesman within the penal system of Illinois, I am acutely aware that there are currently more than 36,000 including approximately 90% or more are Black and Hispanic Males serving time.  This imposes serious consequences for our communities because many among us possess the strong leadership abilities so desperately needed in these most crucial of times.

Our women and children are suffering a greatly at the hands of an oppressive, dominate and racially political system.  From home there is a heart wrenching cry for help, bouncing off the walls and echoing throughout our incarcerated halls.

As proud Black Men and Brown Men we CAN NO LONGER AFFORD THIS FORCED LUXURY OF NON-INVOLVEMENT OR NON-PARTICIPATION.  AS MEN UNABLE TO PHYSICALLY CLAIM OUR RIGHTFUL PLACE AS HEADS OF HOUSEHOLD, THE QUESTION REMAINS; HOW CAN WE CONTRIBUTE WITHIN OUR LIMITED CAPACITIES?

MAN TO MAN I SAY TO YOU, IF WE ACCEPT A PARTIAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE PLIGHT OF OUR OWN THEN, WE MUST TAKE AN ACTIVE ROLE IN THE GAME OF "POLITICS." I challenge each and every one of you to accept the obligation to personally guarantee that each adult member (18 and older), of your family and within your circle of friends registers to vote and participates in the November elections. (Not less than 5 people)

For far to many years the political establishment has taken us for granted and rightfully so. We have demonstrated time after time our unwillingness to go to the poles and vote. They foolishly and mistakenly believe that because we never have, we never will.

We possess a great deal of power by the sheer virtue of our numbers. Collectively these numbers represent enormous change in the lives of our loved ones. We must become more responsive in electing competent, responsible and capable Representation for our selves and for our own.

We have each experienced the power of this unfair and unjust system. We have learned much at the hands of our oppressors. Now we have an opportunity to beat them at their own game!

If you can't become a part of the solution then live with the knowledge that you are contributing to the problem!!!!

GET YOUR PEOPLE REGISTERED TO VOTE AND TO THE POLLS!!!!!

Respectfully,

Larry Hoover

  1. First giving all honor and praise to the God of our foremothers and forefather, YHWH Holy One of Yisrael. Next i'd like to extend honor and respect to our Chairman his family and all who love the profound mind and spirit that YaH has blessed him with.

    We live in a time period unlike no other...a time period of so much uncertainty that even the powers that be are running frantic concerning the future economic, political and social reality of not just this country, but the entire industrialized world.
    In such conditions as this, the only thing that makes sense to me is tapping into the Spirit of YaH, and the implimentation of The Vision! In doing so we have not just a better chance of serviving this crisis, but living and flurishing into something great!
    We are about to enter into another election year...we have to make sure that the release of our Chairman is a part of the political discussion. There are far too many Gz, plugged or renegade, to just allow the injustices taking place in Mr. Hoovers and many others such as Elder Mumia Abu Jamal, Imam Jamil Al Amin, Elder Sundiata Acoli, etc cases to just be ignored. These are our freedom fighters! These are those who have the power to effect change within our communities!So make sure ALL counts, sets, clicks, etc REGISTER TO VOTE!
    We have to make a political statement to Mr. Obama, our governors, mayors, senate leaders etc that IF YOU WANT OUR VOTE, THE RELEASE OF OUR PP/POW's MUST BE ON THE AGENDA!!!

    Revolutionary Luv
    and Respect

  3. First I give thanks and praise to the spirit we are endowed with a great leader, and through his vision may the spirit release him. I believe that the new law comes into effect on November 1, 2011. The question is, how do we file for clemency! This man has served over 30 years and black on black crime has not changed nor has gun violence. We need to stop holding everyone accountable for what an individual does. I do not hold every Caucasian American accountant-able for Slavery. Maybe I should because of its direct affect and continuing effects. I do not hold it against every Caucasian in American for an apology for Slavery. Realistically, America has a past and still no apology, that has happened over 400 years ago. My point is, how can this country continue to hold this man for over 30 years when a life sentence has already been served. Mr. Hoover has done all the requirements that the Bureau of Prison has required him to do for a release. @ at Phil, you are either part of the solution or part of the problem, the answer lies within you, and how you contribute to life.

  4. @Phil- Hoover is very analytical about the way we should carry ourselves as a whole. If you can't start moving forward in a positive direction that builds up your community because you lack discipline to do so, then admit it to yourself. Ultimately you only lie to yourself in the end so skip thru the formalities and continue to be a plague on society, but at least be aware of that fact. "I am who I am..." acknowledge your nature until you reach a point where you are able to push past these negative aims and move in a positive direction.

    Much love and respect to the family of Larry Hoover. I am truly sorry you have to live with the pain of an incarcerated loved one. Especially considering the fact that decision is motivated by fear of change. My wife is incarcerated now and I've done 10 years for my crimes and have personally seen the affects of life in the ghetto where no knowledge is sought. Because of the concepts given to me by Larry Hoover through a long line of individuals seeking to be better I have a moral code to live by. A set of ethics and a sense of community I lacked growing up. I truly hope to see the old man at least moved to a facility where his own flesh and blood can visit. With that I leave you with the words of Bob Marley... One Love!

  5. What group of Gz steps out into tha street to clean yards, repair homes, manicure landscapes, shovel snow, and patrol tha block to ensure that our children are safe and untarnished by tha dope game...? They exist. It is on every G with influence to organize these efforts under authority of Larry Hoover. This is tha Vision! See and share it. Make it manifest into reality! By doing so We gain tha Love and Trust of our community. Oh, don't think it's a " happily ever after" there... Then property value increases and developers suck polidicks and we must take a united stand as a Community against those who would have us all evicted and bought out by local gov't against our will. There is no easy path but there is many paths to Righteousness... Love, Honor and Respect... Zeus G

  6. "Never despise the day of small things". Some yrs ago, u asked my uncle, who associated with Larry Hoover to tell me what he knew about him. At the time, i didnt know why i asked and even my uncle looked at me funny for a moment before he told me what he knew. Now, i know that i was being. lead by the spirit of God. Everyday, we may come into contact people and not even know who we come into contact with, denying their power. To you, Hoover may be a husband, a father, uncle, brother, grandfather, friend, enemy, or maybe even a leader. But, to God and myself, he is (1) the man who obtained a promise of God that he would not die before he saw the birth of the messiah, (2) he is John the Baptist with a message of repentance and paving the way for the messiah. Hoover, i know from the mouth of God, u will be crowned as these two men and u have a position of honor and glory inside his kingdom. Blessed is he who suffers for the sake of truth.

  7. Most violence in our streets occur because of a struggle for power on a block. Maybe Hoover did engage in some of these activities, but that is never the reason for his imprisonment under the conditions by which he is imprisoned. Hoover, along with others like Jeff Fort, were engaged in a power struggle over a bloc. Notice the spelling. Agrican americans, one voice, one vote putting our power behind an elected official who really voices our concerns and issues that r pertinent to us as a people. Our history is ripe with people who fight to ensure that we are no longer treated as second class citizens in a society that was built on our sweat, tears, blood and for some, our lives. Yet, their contribution goes unnoticed because we dont heed the call to become educated (people died so that this right could be obtained also). The truth sad truth maybe that Hoover and others like him may die having never been adjudicated. But, it will be our fault. We spend way too much time on things that really have no real importance in the great scheme of things. If u can read, u think u r educated, yet u never read anything. Furthermore, we are selfish. Wr go on our daily lives and days without number goes by without us even giving a thought about people who took up the cause. The massrs of us people always have and always will be cowards. This mau make some folks mad, but truth is truth. Most of us would never take up the torch. The battle is gargantuan. But when we have a Hoover who takes up the cause, the travesty is that their contribution is not acknowledged or even froened upon by someone who is ignorant as to the facts.

  9. To take our Love to a higher level we must seek Knowledge. We listen only to gain understanding. Understanding rules a Nation and with that we speak Knowledge to those dedicated individuals seeking Love and progression of this Life. We shall Love Wisdom. Wisdom and thoughts from a Strong Mind keeps one's Body dedicated and Soul with a feeling of what our Cause stands for. Love is an action and respect that we show other (BOS&SOS) who are on tha same level we are on. Our Minds will progress to where everything around us works in our favor... "BOS Love Concept" paraphrased by Zeus G.

  18. First I start by saying Plenty Much Love the honorable Chairman and his family. Its crazy how much the government fears our Chairman and Leader that they buried him alive basically. We need to come together and show our strength and let them know that Folks change. Under the teachings of out Great Leader I have changed my life. Thinking things out more not just reacting. If we Stand Strong and come together and sign petitions and make noise about this unjustly wrong doing we can make a difference. With that said I'm gone. Mac White PML

  19. In preparation for the task before us, as We strive in our struggle, We thought the need to address certain basic fundamental principles of our Concept, Beliefs and our Existence as an unified and consolidated group of people with an executive structure that functions within an organize scheme of things.
    It has been over 15yrs. since The Vision read made aware to Us and those whom we have taking as companions and are allied to us by the creed and membership associated with our battle for Growth and Development, yet we still are illiterate to its Truths and Principles. We say "We Believe" but what evidence do we hold as ABSOLUTE truth, do we ALL share the same IDEOLOGY? What are We honestly unified under and besides our past, what truly aligns us ALL? The answer is clear Brothers and Sisters, LOVE(in a low degree) humankind's 1st law of existence and our 1st principle, which is the creative force of ALL things.
    Our Concept states that"We should show faith in the LOVE within our Brothers and Sisters that they will catch our leaderships Vision and in time come to realize his own strength and seek to rise above our past." Now without Proper Knowledge of "WHERE WE ARE" how can we truly rise out if one "stage of existence" to "WHERE WE MUST ADVANCE TO, IF WE ARE TO SURVIVE AS REVEALED BY HE WHO BELONGS TO US AS A NOBLE AND DIGNIFIED GUIDE, MODERATOR AND MASTER OF THE VISION." Brothers and Sisters We can not and will not, We will never be a reckoning power of people beyond boundaries, without measures as long as We lack the KNOWLEDGE of self. For LIFE holds you accountable according to that which you believe.
    It shall be made clear that our New Concept contains a rare exposure of KNOWLEDGE, WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING that can change the way we think by revealing a truth in which we were unaware. By utilizing our New Concept wer can move to a new horizon heretofore unimaginable. This truth came in the form known as The Universal Laws of Existence. Which is "the Awareness that there is 360 degrees of LOVE, LIFE, LOYALTY, KNOWLEDGE, WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING in all people of the earth. That LIFE has within it the necessary strength to gather from its self all that is needed for its GROWTH and DEVELOPMENT."
    We have to familiarize ourselves with these Truths and Principles so that we are truly as ONE. As we stated, We as the majority(ALL AS IN ONE) are far behind with the Proper Education(Awareness) of Self, Creed, and Organization. All of our endeavors should be in aligning our ranks and calling our Fellow Brothers and Sisters to "plugging in" to this righteous living as decreed and determined through the message of our Leader, Moderator and Master of the Vision, as well as those who put into effect, administer and execute the Vision.

  34. Inorder for us to be a politically strong unified organization we have no other choice but to accept and embrace the teachings of our honorable chairman.We the willing have to convince our people than this vision is real and its key too saving our communities.im from Chicago and i have personally witnessed the systematic destroying of our people through gang violence and institutionalized racism.our chairmen teaches us that with proper preparation, educating ourselves Inorder to Better Our Selves we can overcome all obstacles placed in front of us.Young man is out in the streets doing what they have to do to survive and. There's a sense of hopelessness in every ghetto across America.This is why those who are truly living in the vision must work so hard to show our young people the way and don't give up on them.Im 36 years old and ive made the transition from the old too the new,ive embraced Growth and Development with all my heart and the vision of our chairman is alive and shining within me.I have attained my bachelor degree in human service and im inspiring hope in our young people. I encourage all Real GDs to please do the same!!!!
