This book will impart to the readers and many Tallahassee City employees the historical practices of discrimination exercised against blacks and other minorities by the Municipal government of the City of Tallahassee, Florida. City staff ignored blatant and flagrant practice of denying blacks and other minorities the opportunities for raises and bonuses, promotions, withholding of vacancy lists from black applicants and the steering and/or channeling of black applicants to low paying jobs. Romans 12:10, “Love one another with brotherly affection.  Outdo one another in showing honor.”
The City of Tallahassee was engaged in the practice of discriminating against blacks and other minorities long before the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In April of 1975, a group of Civil Rights Activists came together and filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for The Northern District of Florida. The case was filed against the City Commission and its members, the City Manager, and his successors in office. Therefore, an overseer must be above reproach, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable and able to teach. 1 Timothy 4:10 says, “For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.”
The City of Tallahassee engaged in the practice of hiring Administrators who would do anything asked of them to carry out the racist and bigot practices of the City of Tallahassee’s Leadership. Often when blacks were hired, they were not provided the staffing or the equipment to get the job done in a professional manner.
My advice to all current and future employees: stay the course and in all your ways honor and obey God’s word and he shall give his angels charge over you to keep you safe from your evil doers. Hebrews 13:6 declares, “So that we may boldly say, the Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”
During my employment with the City of Tallahassee, the wrongdoers who intentionally brought many storms into my life, the Lord let me witness the consequence of their wickedness. They were shackled and handcuffed and led to court. Deuteronomy 31:8 states, “And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee, fear not, neither be dismayed.”
