Comments on Lee Otis was a good man!!

  • I remember Lee Otis Johnson from my days at the University of Houston. He was a good man. He did not deserve the "torture" he recieved at the hands of the "man". This was the mid to late 60s. The "brothers" were non-violent. Thay were involved in the Breakfast Program (for feeding underprivileged black children in the 5th Ward[of Houston]).
    The trouble started when Carl Hampton was assassinated from the church-top across from the dorms at TSU. This started the TSU riots. The non-violent "brothers" were forced to become violent. It was necessary to protect themselves and their loved ones. It should not have happened.
    The racist authorities were to blame for this injustice and the illegal treatment of Lee Otis, and many other innocent people.

  • Thanks for your comments about Lee Otis Johnson, who was my elementary school friend.
