    This is a wonderful list of Black and Brown men who changed their lives. I wish more young men would pay attention and follow the positive examples these men have established. :)

    I need a man like Bozella or Bozella himself to talk my son. I just need a man on man for my son, his father is a loser. Yes I have said this to my son that he is good for nothing man. I am telling him the truth. I could lie and make up excuses for his father. I refused to do that. The only thing I can’t do is have a man on man talk with my son. I need someone to explain to him how important it is to be a black man in America. Bozella is the man. I can feel it in my heart. I want him to meet you if all possible. You are at a wonderful age 52 and I am 55 and have not utilize my potential to reach my dream, and I do have a dream. I will accomplished it. I need my son to be the backbone in the family. He needs to be an inspiration to his nephew who is 15-mths-old who adores him.

    Thank you for your story.

    Love me, Love you

      Robyn – what you need to do is two things: first you do not need a man like Mr Bozella to speak with your son. Second, and more importantly, you need to stand up and speak about the injustices black and other minority men face in this racist and hostile society. As this Nation’s Founding Fathers taught over 200 years ago: a society that is filled with crime and disorder is one in which there is no justice. In other words, they were the first ones to say, ”no justice, no peace”. For you to suggest that an ex-con should serve as role model is a sad and pathetic statement. Mr Bozella is not in need of reform. It is this racist and unjust society that needs reform. Change society for the better and we will no longer see innocent people like Mr Bozella in jail or under a hanging tree for crimes they did not commit.

    Shalom & Boker tov…what nonsense, what a sad commentary. I am pleased that Mr Bozella was exonerated, and was found to be innocent. And yet. I do not think that violence — which is as reprehensible as goyim painting their faces black for minstrel shows, or Amos ‘n’ Andy, or cryptofascist ‘rap’ and its virulent sexism/protonazism/racialism — makes a ‘man’ a ‘man’. For anyone — black, white, or polka-dotted — to embrace the idolatrous blasphemy of crucifictionism, which has created genocide and slavery, then to use violence to ‘prove’ something about one’s self…this is the New World Slave Order. Better for Mr Bozella to become a scholar, and rebuild already damaged black generations of young women (and men), than to prance about in a ‘ring’ like a caged primate. Mr Bozella, you have proven nothing with violence, except reinforce the plantation owners’s already codified taxonomy of blacks and anyone else who is not white crucifictionist.

    Stephan Pickering–what the hell are you talking about? What you wrote has nothing to do with Dewey Bozella’s story.

    • Jyrone Denny

      I agree, NancyGene. Mr. Pickering tries to disguise his ignorance with his “big words,” but most of the time he does not even have an inkling of what he is talking about. He will take the topic at hand and make it his own personal agenda. And be careful, because if you disagree with him he labels you an anti-semite. Mr. Pickering, Mr. Bozella was finally released from prison for a crime he was unjustly accused of and convicted, then he was able to “live out his dream as a professional fighter.” And what do you do? You try to piss on his parade by stating that he’s acting like a caged primate. Can you find a positive in anything, or are you so miserable that you cannot acknowledge that the world is not as evil and vile as you claim. Oh, I also noticed that you still like to use the word crucifictionist. Get some new material Pickering; you are becoming too predictable.

        Stephan Pickering is a rabid Internet troll, commenting on and claiming all sorts of things.  He needs to just shut up.

    It grieves my heart to see people treated so unjustly.

  • Al Bermudez Pereira

    In my book, Ruins of a Society and the Honorable, I write about Mr. Bozella. I retired from NYS corrections and like Bozella, I too had a brother who served twenty-years of a fifteen year sentence for a crime he never committed. Do I say this because he’s my bro? No, through hours of leg work and questioning many on the street, I later discovered who actually did the killing. Allow to mention before I forget, my brothers attorney, was arrested, indicted and sentence, before my own bro…
    It’s all in my book.
