I can always depend on my mama
And when it seems that I'm hopeless
You say the words that can get me back in focus
When I was sick as a little kid
To keep me happy there's no limit to the things you did
And all my childhood memories
Are full of all the sweet things you did for me
And even though I act craaazy
I gotta thank the Lord that you made me
There are no words that can express how I feel
You never kept a secret, always stayed real
And I appreciate, how you raised me
And all the extra love that you gave me~”Dear Mama” By 2Pac

A W.E. A.L.L. B.E. News Special Report
One of the main inspirations for W.E. A.L.L. B.E. News to get involved in this case was Mrs. Brenda Carter-Evans herself…I got her phone number and have called her on several occasions beginning in January….Although she wouldn’t give me an interview without her lawyer’s consent she was nonetheless very cordial and positive in all of our conversations…When February came and went with no news about the case I started to get worried that this will be forgotten about…Several folks in the community who I exchanged correspondence with were also worried…
One Saturday morning , March 12, 2011, I once again decided to reach out to Mrs. Brenda Carter-Evans…I told her about my concerns about the progress of the case and she informed me at that time that they haven’t receive the first autopsy results from the state which in turn postponed the 2nd autopsy results from coming out…
In the same conversation she described to me the beauty of her son, how he was so beloved by the young people and little children in their community…Although he didn’t have kids himself he was always buying toys and things for kids in the neighborhood…They truly adored and looked up to The Man Child Known As Fire…
So when his life was extinguished they were more than understandably upset…One kid even told her since Frederick died that he himself also wanted to be dead because he miss him so much and that it hurt him so bad not having Frederick around…She also told me at the time of his death that he along with his stepfather was working on a playground in Sunflower so that the neighborhood kids could have a place to play… She even offered to show me the playground project herself…
It was well known that Frederick would spend his last and go without in order to make those neighborhood kids happy… How can a person with this much love and zest for life and others be so willing to take his own life in such a fashion??? She told me that she called him ‘the man of the house’ which also struck me as strange considering that she had a husband who she has been married to for the last 13 plus years which is actually half of Bro. Frederick’s life…But nevertheless he seemed to live up to the title being the man of not only his house, but also to the community and a true big brother to his two younger sisters…
I am sure there is nothing like the pain of a parent losing a child and although Brenda Carter-Evans was surprisingly upbeat and jovial, which may seem strange to some, but all individuals find different ways with coping with grief, it seems that she was nevertheless determined in seeking justice for Fire…Her example lit a fire in me to do the same…On March 18, through the efforts of W.E. A.L.L. B.E. News and other concerned entities the state autopsy results were released and it seems that the case was gaining momentum and that something of substance may come about…
When I finally met Brenda-Carter-Evans and we interacted at the April press conference and crime scene she still seemed to be jovial and good natured, but as I reflect now I seem to come away with two impressions…I hope that some of my thoughts are off but it seems that Brenda Carter-Evans encouraged a certain divisive element within her camp be it naively so, covertly or indirectly…For the life of me as much as I want to lay full blame at the feet of Valerie Hicks Powe for the way this case has been questionably handled thus far as it relates to the pro-Frederick faction I really do believe that she only represents the interests of the party that procured her services...Everything that Attorney Valerie Hicks Powe has done since entering this case had to be okayed or blessed by Brenda Carter-Evans, the mother of Frederick Jermaine Carter…If justice is what they truly seek then why has there been so many hands bitten, bridges burn and love not reciprocated???
Mrs. Brenda Carter-Evans convincingly stated during the press conference that she would sell baked goods, mow lawns or do whatever else necessary to raise money for the cause…In other words by any means necessary she vowed to seek justice for her Fire…Mrs. Brenda Carter-Evans can either be on the side of the problem or the solution but she can’t be on both…I pray that Mrs. Brenda Carter-Evans would get some revelation, peace and overstanding in knowing the value of her staying on the path for the right reasons or getting out of the way for truth and justice to manifest no matter what may come to light in this tragedy…Yes it is a tragedy but let Bro. Fredrick Jermaine Carter’s death be not in vain but have meaning by letting those interested in truth be united in demanding answers and actions from the powers that be without interference from folks working on the same side of the aisle aborting the movement before it comes into maturity…
Mrs. Brenda Carter-Evans told me in so many words herself when we were standing literally just feet from the scene of her son’s crucifixion on Good Friday that we all got a part to play…We all do but we should always know what team we are playing on and what we are playing for...Mrs. Brenda Carter-Evans could play her part as the 21st Century Mamie Till-Mobley igniting a whole generation of young people working hand in hand with the Elders in order to write a new chapter in the people’s freedom struggle in this country or continually be used as a pawn for the white power establishment to quiet the questions and quell the passions of a historically disenfranchised demographic ready to stand up at a moment’s notice to fight the powers that be if they can only be pointed in the right direction and equipped with the right information to do so…In the words of Frantz Fanon,"Each generation must discover its mission, fulfill it or betray it, in relative opacity." How many times will this generation get to redefine itself on its own terms??? How many Jena 6, Katrina, and 911 moments do we have left to act in the desired fashion to get the desired results???
