“Let us give thanks to our God that the sons will not escape the sins of their fathers,” Mobile Black Foot Soldier Moses Abernathy is quoted as saying in a rally Mobile County Black Foot Soldier contacts reportedly held to denounce the continued persecution of the four acclaimed Kyser Miree reparations protesters being illegally held by the State and to state re-condemnation of the Miree family – that is suspected of having direct Trans Atlantic slave trade ties.
“There was no better news to the blacks in this community than news of Kyser’s death.”
According to the Slaves Schedules of the 1850 census, Wm. S. Miree of Perry County Alabama (Only 1 county removed from Jeffereson County Alabama – in which Birmingham resides) owned a considerable number slaves.
“The Miree family is a family of generational racial criminals who, in spite of the daring reparations protest against Kyser , continue to deny accountability for their crimes. We say to that family today that their son Kyser was not good or decent. Rather, he was a piggish racist and Holocaust denier who supported the atrocities of his fathers and believed in the continued racially terrorism of his county’s government. There was no greater or better news to the blacks in this community than that of his death.”
“We do not condone violence against direct Trans Atlantic Slave Trade Reparations Offenders or non direct ones,” in their first statement issued on the protest, Mobile Black Foot Soldier Moses Abernathy is quoted as saying. “We are compelled by the evidence in this case to believe that this 23 year old offender, whose family is believed to have once owned slaves, turned this peaceful demonstration violent.”
According to the Slaves Schedules of the 1850 census, Wm. S. Miree of Perry County Alabama (Only 1 county removed from Jeffereson County Alabama – which Birmingham resides) owned a considerable number slaves.
My big brother and lifelong hero, the one and only Kyser Miree, was taken from us forever this weekend. Kyser was alone in his living room on Friday night when some human entered his home and shot him in the back of the head. My heart writhes in anguish over the senseless murder of the most peaceful and chipper man this world has ever seen.
Alabama Black Foot Soldiers have launched an investigation to determine if the families are the same. No one in Kiser’s family, however, has denied the relation.
