Overwhelming denial of social and cultural rights for African- Americans

When will there be justice for African-Americans

Where is there any mention of an African-American involved in Internet Development

“Despite substantial changes since the end of the enforcement of Jim Crow and the fight for civil rights, ideology ensuring the domination of one group over another, continues to negatively impact the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of African Americans today,” it said in a statement. “The dangerous ideology of white supremacy inhibits social cohesion amongst the US population.” – Washington Post Article


Although it has been 26 years since this woman invented the creative ideas that have forever changed the function and character of the Internet – making it possible for it to even extend beyond the boundaries of earth – she is still being disregarded by a government that took the ideas and ran with them without compensating her . “The rules changed when I became involved”,says Inventor . ” Although it generally takes 2-4 years for patent application prosecution I asked to expedite my application when I first filed in 2004 – although it was not docketed until 2005 . My money was refunded rather than allow me to expedite the application.This is indicative of the pressure to keep Blacks from social and cultural rights enforcing the lack of advancement of colored people.” Click on image to enlarge .

Dorothy M. Hartman alleges that she is as much a part of Internet History as all the other so called founders as she says that ‘ there would be no internet had it not been for the National Science Foundation ordering the “Commercialization of Telecommunications in 1990 which she alleges was copied from her proposals . Merit Networks along with IBM was commissioned for this project by the NSF which had been in charge of the NSFNET which really was a holding place for the retired Internet ( the one based on having the ARPANET as its core ). Today’s Internet which is different from the previous Internet which had been discontinued but was transformed by the new ideas and the NSF commission to Merit Networks in 1990 .

She claims that the success with the Internet which began with the transformation to privitization literally began with ideas that she submitted to the federal government starting in 1989 when she visited the Small Business Administration location at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania . Between this blog and its sister blog at , you can learn more about this side of Internet history .

Hartman alleges that she was met with resistance from the beginning and as is mostly the case when African-Americans become involved especially in projects which may become well known or successful financially and ‘elitists’ or those who consider themselves ‘superior’ are in competition. The rules are completely changed to prevent justice to African- Americans. Internet development was an especially high bar but the Internet would not have been developed to the extent it has without the use of my ideas regarding cyberspace and commercialization. ” I was told my patent application would take 12 years their letter to me dated 6/6/6.” See below.

The change- although her proposals form a paper trail of correspondence between her and federal and state employees reviewing her proposal on Accessing Accessibility which is a business process which marries technology and commerce to business – was received and ideas copied – she essentially has been ignored since . She was forced to file for a patent to try to establish legality as she attempted to work within with agencies involved but was dismissed . Although she presented written proposals between the years of 1990-1992 – she did not file for a patent until 2004 . Primarily because she did not propose new technology just a novel way of using the technology – she could not file for a patent immediately. Only after 1999 and the passing of the American Inventor’s Act did business ideas become patentable. Anyhow she understood the scope of what she was proposing and really had hoped to share the ideas with other businesses. The growth of the Internet really began to take off around 2004 as more users and internet service providers increased .2004 increase in internet users

However because it became a huge success just as she wrote that it would and changed commerce and the way the world does business forever – as success grew and the government funded corporations and other internet protocol companies that were already involved in the field – GREED , RACISM , and OPPRESSION proliferated right along with the Internet . The supposed movement for “Free and open Internet ” was nothing more than a smokescreen for companies which have become rich because of the changes in the Internet behind the scenes lobbying against the patent application which was decided 2012-2013 . There are billions and trillions of dollars in the industry and in some ways the economy has been run into the ground . Ms. Hartman who is more responsible for the ideas that made today’s internet a success than any other party has been completely ignored since her ideas were read in the 1990’s . She is still seeking Justice for African-Americans as she feels that the theft of her intellectual property and legacy is blasphemous as using anyone’s property and trading on that without compensating and injuring the person is both ethnically and morally wrong . The abuse of power by authorities using systemic racism to abuse the civil and constitutional of African-Americans is fundamentally wrong . “Justice for African-Americans is long overdue .”

Those in Ecommerce and Technology which have now become hugely successful fields did not even understand how today’s Internet which was first dubbed the ‘ Information Superhighway ‘ worked. The major internet corporations expand and grow the Internet but they did not invent it only aided in internet development It is only since I started blogging about it around 2011 when I realized that the federal government was just going to settle for the Supervisory Taking of my intellectual property ( which is a violation under the 14th and 5th amendment ) in that they have snatched the property to use for population without declaring Eminent Domain or compensating the owner in anyway ).

This is wrong and a violation of the Inventor’s civil and constitutional rights . Additionally a local federal judge and the Court(s) have further persecuted her by the illegal seizure of her home – caused by a fraudulent mortgage foreclosure that was allowed to be carried out in the wrong court of jurisdiction . While other inventors or intellectual contributors to inventions or discoveries that have advanced the population – this inventor has been smeared in defamation campaigns and continuously subjected to violations in Due Process . She has filed the matter regarding her illegally confiscated home in the Supreme Court – still hoping for some kind of relief from misapplication of law , racism , and oppression .

The Status of Pennsylvania Justice

Final Report of Pennsylvania Supreme Court Committee on Race and Gender Bias in the Justice System .

Below are some direct quotes from the Committee Report itself dated 2005 describing some of the research and suggested amendments and recommendations :

While other chapters of this report discuss instances of bias in specific types
of legal cases and settings, this chapter discusses instances and perceptions
of racial, ethnic, and gender bias that cut across all aspects of the judicial
system. Specifically, the Committee reviewed instances of racial, ethnic, and
gender bias as perceived, reported and reflected by actual participants in
the judicial process—judges, attorneys, litigants, witnesses, and court
employees throughout Pennsylvania, in both the civil and criminal justice
Many people who come into contact with the Pennsylvania justice system
report that there is racial and ethnic bias within the system. While most
agree that intentionally offensive behavior has declined in recent decades,
many people of color still detect evidence of bias lingering in judicial
hallways, in the workplace, and in courtrooms. Bias may be evident when,
for instance, an African American attorney is called a derogatory, racially
inspired name. The signs of bias may also take a more subtle form when,
for example, counsel refers to an African American witness as “Johnny”
and a white witness as “Mr. Smith,” or when a court employee raises an
eyebrow as an African American man stands to answer the question “Who
represents the plaintiff?”
Through public hearings, interviews, focus group sessions, and other
research tools during the past two years, the Committee has grappled
with fundamental questions concerning courtroom speech or conduct that
calls attention to a person’s race or ethnic identity. When are comments
improper and demeaning? How does the court respond when a litigant has
been insulted, demeaned, or disrespected on the basis of race or ethnicity?
And when do disrespectful comments and behaviors materially undermine
the ability of a person to perform professionally in the courtroom?
Statements made to the Committee in public hearings and focus groups
suggest that, at a minimum, race- or ethnic-based comments and conduct
tip the courtroom’s level playing field, whether the persons being singled
out are attorneys, litigants, or witnesses. Expressions of bias impose upon
people of color a barrier to effective performance that does not exist for
white courtroom participants. Displays of respect and disrespect are
bound to register on judges and jurors as they make the myriad decisions
associated with a trial. Therefore, any conduct warrants scrutiny and
correction when it singles out one participant and places him or her in an
unfavorable light.
The Melior Group and V. Kramer & Associates conducted focus groups and
interviews on the topics of racial, ethnic, and gender bias in the courtroom.
During these sessions, they gathered “numerous accounts” of apparent
offhand comments that injected condescension or hostility into courtroom
proceedings. An assistant district attorney in Philadelphia, for instance, used
the term “boy” in reference to a 50-year-old African American defendant.1
Elsewhere, court personnel were overheard using stereotypical code-speak
(“What can you expect from them?”)2 to characterize litigants.
There can be no doubt that such statements are made. There is no need here,
however, to determine their frequency or precise location because, as the
attached final report of The Melior Group and V. Kramer & Associates notes,
arguments about the depth and breadth of racial or ethnic bias are “largely
extraneous,” or beside the point. “We think that the Committee should direct
its considerations to the central issue that is commonly expressed by the study’s
participants,” the report says. “That is, racial bias, whether emanating from
insensitivity, indifference, ignorance, or negative prejudice, compromises and
injures the parties affected. It fosters unequal treatment and unequal outcomes
in the one area where justice is sought.”3
Sources of Information
The Committee conducted an extensive literature review, examining more
than 20 recent task force reports on racial and ethnic bias from other states
and federal judicial circuits. Many of the reports regard perceptions of bias
as a critical element to be examined. As a judge said in the Second Circuit’s
1997 report on gender, racial, and ethnic fairness in federal court, “After all,
even if the courts are fair, unless those appearing in them think so, we have a
problem.”4 One consistent finding in most studies is that a large percentage
of women and people of color regard bias as common within the courts,
while men—and particularly white men—believe it occurs only in rare
instances. This finding appears to hold true for groups of judges, litigators,
witnesses, and litigants. A summary of key findings from other state and
federal task force reports, including the 1997 report of the Third Circuit
Task Force on Equal Treatment in the Court, is included later in this chapter.
The Committee found the same dichotomy in perceptions of biased conduct
in Pennsylvania that were noted in other state and federal task force reports.
The Committee reviewed prior relevant studies conducted in Pennsylvania,
notably the Philadelphia Bar Association’s 1988 Report of the Special
Committee on Employment of Minorities in the Legal Profession. The
Committee also generated current data through its own study conducted by
The Melior Group and V. Kramer & Associates and through public hearings
held throughout the Commonwealth. The consultants conducted interviews
with judges and litigants and held focus groups with attorneys and court
employees in Philadelphia, Erie, Harrisburg, and Pittsburgh.

The Committee concluded, based upon the findings of its study of
Perceptions and Occurrences of Racial, Ethnic, and Gender Bias in the
Courtroom, that the codes of professional conduct governing the behavior
of judges, attorneys, and court personnel should be modified to specifically
address biased behavior by those members of the legal community. In
December 2000, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania adopted the Code
of Civility, designed to “assist judges and lawyers in how to conduct
themselves in a manner that preserves the dignity and honor of the
judiciary and the legal profession.” While the Committee applauds the
effort of the Court to encourage civility among members of the legal
community, given the data collected by the Committee, it recommends that
new sections be added to the existing Code of Judicial Conduct and to the
Code of Professional Responsibility specifically prohibiting the judiciary
and attorneys from manifesting bias in the performance of their duties. The
Committee also recommends that a code for court employees be adopted in
Pennsylvania prohibiting discriminatory conduct based on race, ethnicity,
and gender, among other factors.
Toward that end, the Committee reviewed codes of judicial conduct enacted
by other states and the model code recommended by the ABA. After much
deliberation, the Committee decided to recommend that the model code
drafted by the ABA be incorporated into the existing Pennsylvania Code of
Judicial Conduct. The pertinent sections are set forth below:

CANON 3B(5) A judge shall perform judicial duties without
bias or prejudice. A judge shall not, in the
performance of judicial duties, by words or
conduct manifest bias or prejudice, including
but not limited to bias or prejudice based upon
race, sex, religion, national origin, disability,
age, sexual orientation or socioeconomic
status, and shall not permit staff, court
officials and others subject to the judge’s
direction and control to do so.268
CANON 3B(6) A judge shall require lawyers in proceedings
before the judge to refrain from manifesting,
by words or conduct, bias or prejudice based
upon race, sex, religion, national origin,
disability, age, sexual orientation or
socioeconomic status, against parties,
witnesses, counsel or others. This Section
3B(6) does not preclude legitimate advocacy
when race, sex, religion, national origin,
disability, age, sexual orientation or
socioeconomic status, or other similar factors
are issues in the proceedings.269
Similarly, the Committee reviewed codes of conduct for practicing
attorneys in other states, as well as the model rules of professional
conduct recommended by the ABA. Pennsylvania’s Code of Professional
Responsibility incorporates the model rule of professional conduct
recommended by the ABA set forth below:
Rule 8.4 Misconduct
It is professional misconduct for a lawyer to:
− (d) Engage in conduct that is prejudicial to the administration of justice.
Based upon its review, the Committee recommends that the Code of
Professional Responsibility governing the behavior of attorneys licensed to
practice in Pennsylvania be amended to include the following additional
A lawyer violates the prohibition against conduct that is
prejudicial to the administration of justice when, in the course
of representing a client, manifests by words or conduct, bias or
prejudice based upon race, sex, religion, national origin,
disability, age, sexual orientation or socioeconomic status.
Codes of professional conduct for court employees are a recent
development built on similar codes for judges and lawyers. New Jersey
adopted the first state code for court personnel.270 There is also a national
code promulgated by the National Association for Court Management.271
Additionally, the states of California and Vermont have adopted a code of
conduct governing the behavior of judicial branch personnel.272 Based upon
its review of the various conduct codes for court personnel, the Committee
recommends that Pennsylvania adopt the following code for employees of
the court to follow:
Employees of the court shall not, in conduct of service to the
court and public, discriminate on the basis of, nor manifest by
verbal or written comment or conduct, a bias or prejudice based
upon race, color, sex, religion, national origin, ancestry, age,
disability, marital status, sexual orientation or socioeconomic
status that adversely affects the person’s ability to use the
facilities or services provided by the Judiciary. Discriminatory
behavior also includes any actions, either implicit or explicit,
which adversely affect an employee’s work assignment, work
environment, salary, career or promotional opportunities due to
a bias or prejudice based upon race, color, sex, religion national
origin, ancestry, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation
or socioeconomic status.

African American Inventor Claims Home Illegally Confiscated

Share with friends and family ...

African American Inventor and founder of ABFY Sellers Group , Dorothy M. Hartman alleges home is being illegally confiscated . The Inventor who claims to have invented the modern day Internet alleges that a fraudulent mortgage foreclosure carried out by municipal corruption involving racist realtors with ties to the Courts in Philadelphia are illegally confiscating her home after trashing it and that the court cases are unjust . She alleges that she was placed in this position by the misappropriation of her intellectual property by the federal government .

After filing lawsuits against a realtor and high powered government officials in Philadelphia she was targeted for slandering , harassment, and bullying . Following that her home and automobiles were vandalized. She sued a Realtor , Secretary of the Philadelphia Civil Service Commission and an attorney , and Captain of a Police District for Violation of Fair Trade Practices and Racial Discrimination in their capacity as members of a condominium association board . After purchasing a condominium in highly competitive real estate area in Philadelphia – the inventor alleges that she was subjected to racial epithets and verbal abuses and fraud in her purchase . After being unable to resolve issues and the ongoing neglect and refusal of the board to maintain and upkeep her apartment unit – she filed suit .

These people were the board of directors for the condominium association where she purchased a condominium . She says that the board members were dismissed from any serious charges by lenient judge(s) ruling on nepotism and prejudice – one of whom addressed the Secretary and apologized to him his having to come to court . The jury was instructed to drop the more serious charges of fraud and discrimination but it ruled unanimously to award her the verdict in her favor on a minor charge of Negligence . Although she sold the condominium and purchased her present home -she has been continously harassed , her home and automobiles vandalized with the authorities failing to act against those involved . The bullying and harassment have been extreme because after admitting in a deposition in 1997 that she had been involved in the invention of the modern day Internet – she has been especially ridiculed and her reputation slandered in an effort to discredit her . The Inventor alleges that her claims are valid because her ideas were used by the National Science Foundation in 1990 to transform the Internet that has only existed since the early 1990’s .

After city reporting agencies colluded with banks presenting false and scandalous information on her loan application documents to deny her refinancing on her home loan in 2008 , she approached several law administrative agencies including HUD , Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission , U.S. Justice Dept., the Governor’s Office on Consumer Affairs. Nothing was done . It appears another reason for her being denied justice or even law enforcement action against what are high level criminals with ties to city government and the courts was the fact that she had participated in a Commission Report from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court Committee on Racial and Gender Bias in its Justice System . That 1999 report shows a propensity for bias in the system.


She was asked to participate by a black , female judge to provide her experiences within the court which ran from interruption of due process to the judge ignoring a subpoena of a witness to come to court and she provided that information for the 1999 report .

Pennsylvania has been the subject of several justice scandals including Mumia Abu- Jamal whom some consider a political prisoner , the bombing of MOVE a commune of African-Americans in Philadelphia the only known bombing of its own citizens within a city , Kathleen Cane who released racist and pornographic emails circulated among prosecutors and Supreme Court Justices , and until recently after a few thousand were released known as the state with the highest number of Black incarcerations. Public education has not had an approved budget for two years in a row and some students , Blacks reportedly have no schools that they can attend. Although the Mortgage Foreclosure was filed in State Court , the Court of Common Pleas in Philadelphia – the Inventor asked that the matter be heard in Federal Court because of the violations to her civil and constitutional rights .

She filed the case in Federal Court because she alleges that it was all a “set up” to retaliate against her based on complaints she filed with Federal Agencies against both the Bank of America and the City of Philadelphia which she alleges set out to ruin her . The case has a long and documented history which is on file with the Comptroller of the Currency – yet the federal judge , Paul S. Diamond chose to ignore the Inventor’s complaints about the violation of her civil and constitutional rights and remanded the case back to State Court where the foreclosure was then forced through .” The Bank of America sold off the loan to the Bank of New York Mellon which instituted a so called In Rem action which is really a cloaked In Personam action” , alleges Hartman . ” I rue the day that I ever shared money-making inventive ideas with people who uphold tenets of “Institutionalized Racism”. All I have done is teach and try to help people and I am treated as the scapegoat for their crimes . Civil and Constitutional laws need to be enforced to correct injustice to blacks .”

The Inventor filed in federal court because of the violations to both her civil and constitutional rights . The federal judge on the case failed to take into account evidence that the Inventor’s civil and constitutional rights are and have been violated . The Inventor alleges that he improperly remanded the case back to State Court and that she has been placed in a position of having to fight portions of the same case in both courts while the federal judge has dismissed all charges against the perpetrators . The inventor has appealed the case in both courts , as it is in State Court that the bank has been allowed to seize her property because evidence is being either ignored and/or withheld in both courts that the case belongs under the jurisdiction of the federal court . The inventor has appealed in both courts and she avows that she deserves her day in court . The Federal Judge on the case Paul S. Diamond is trending in the news because of his rulings on other cases

More to Life Than Skin Color

There’s more to life than skin color – the Inventor speaks out .

UNITY is necessary but cannot and should not be acquired at the expense of segregating ourselves from each other or from others .

Just because I do not support hypocrisy and appeasement does not mean that I am not ” Black”, obviously .

Although the Internet as created and conceived by this Inventor as this form of the Internet has only existed since 1990 has produced more businesses ,jobs ,titles , and other inventions than any other invention in history .12 None of these things were possible before the advent of Internet 2 built in 1990 as a result of the introduction of my ideas on Commercializing Telecom This President in addition to all of his other giveaways to Wall Street and the corporate world did not think this ‘Black’ worthy of what is hers by right and that is to be treated as a human being and respected in a manner consistent with established property law .

Because of Skin Color as a result I have had to stand on the front lines of the battles against racism and sexism and be persecuted for it – the give away of valuable intellectual property and credit to others without giving the inventor the opportunity to compete. The illegal confiscation of my home being aided by a federal judge -the latest abusive insult ! Whereas it is exceedingly important to stop the epidemic of injury or death to Blacks by law enforcement and the assault on public education , the school to prison pipeline and other indignities suffered by Black people – keep in mind that African-American are not in this fight alone .

There are other people who are with us and have been from the time of the Abolishionists and John Brown’s Raid. Do not let skin color make a fool out of you and some of us really need to learn how to agree while we disagree.Others March With Us

It is time to move beyond . Time to ‘walk the walk’ not just ‘talk the talk’ and fiery speeches . It is time to put legislation on the books that will remove the archaic laws still keeping African-Americans as 3rd class citizens and holding back the advancement of colored peoples in general.

“Keeping my websites offline , trashing and setting up a fraudulent mortgage foreclosure on my home will not change the truth . I am the inventor that brought the Internet to life and made it successful . Now the arrogant and the oppressive having been given license to do so by the U.S. Patent Office and the Obama administration assuming default ownership of my intellectual property have tried to set me up as a pariah by suppressing the truth and trying to discredit me .

I have had to listen to that criticism of not being ‘black enough’ and sexism being an African-American woman who has been in a field dominated by men and other ethnic groups for a long time and that field is Science . More so , since I went public about my claims to the Internet – the most prolific invention of the 20th Century. Only doing so after becoming a target of abuse for intentional discrimination and the take away of my property without compensation . I worked hard to achieve everything that I have and of course 3 or more times as hard , being disadvantaged . This criticism even comes from some within my own community because I believe in ‘living your dreams and goals to the best of your ability instead of talking about them’. African- Americans are not monoliths but we all share the experience of being treated as 2nd class citizens . It is all absolutely foolish as I am the one suffering the loss of my home and other indignities for even speaking out about my property rights both real estate and intellectual .

What greater platform does a man have than being President of the United States to do something to help the plight of Blacks in this nation ? For 7 years of his presidency President Obama did nothing affirmatively or directly to address the plight of African-Americans in a nation that has held them as underclass citizens for over 400 years . Only upon the efforts of young people in the Black Lives Matter movement and the epidemic of killings of primarily young men of color has he been prompted to respond .

Although African- American and economically disadvantaged I directly asked for his or his Attorney General’s investigation into what I allege were fraudulent dealings regarding my patent application for Accessing Accessibility – his imposition instead was on the side of corporations . Apparently enlisting Senators Leahy and Smith to write and rush through Patent Law legislation that would prevent patentability of my invention . The changes were not effective since I was First to Invent and First to File , so the Office hung its decision to deny based on “indefiniteness” 13-1070.opinion.3-6-2013.1which I allege is a red herring and legally flawed .

It should never had been necessary for me to apply for a patent as being only a human being I never had any intention of ruling over the Internet . It was always my conception and contribution that telecom be open to businesses and ordinary consumers . However since the government has helped itself to my intellectual property for its benefit and essentially the benefit of the entire world – the very least it should have done was acknowledge me for my contributions and award me appropriately . Or even had given me funding to start my own telecommunications company as well which is why I went to them with the idea in the first place .Submission of Ideas to Government

To the contrary President Obama worked behind the scenes of the ” free-and-open Internet ” and ” net-neutrality” debate to insure that the big corporations held onto their rights to telecom , ecommerce , and Information technology . These fields and the tremendous economic expansion that arose from them after 1990 can all be traced to the ideas which I shared with the federal government regarding what a significant impact commercializing telecom would have on the economy . Those ideas submitted in writing under the title ” The Feasibility of Accessing Accessibility ” ushered in the use of Cyberspace by the technology industry and has changed the way the entire world interacts and does business . The Internet is now all over the world and has brought trillions of dollars into the United States economy and provides this administration with some of its most used tools surveilance and monitoring . That is why the Internet appeared after 1990 and has expanded into every sphere of the planet . Multimedia now possible . collage

Yet this President when I went to him about how my intellectual property rights – did absolutely nothing to help me , but worked in favor of corporations . A patent application should never have been necessary on my part . However it became necessary for me to file legally for my rights and that has brought a slew of court cases including the most recent which I allegeInventor’s Home Vandalized and Seized is the illegal taking of my house to continue to persecute the ‘nigra’ and ‘keep her in her place ‘. All of this in written history to the U.S. Attorney General office regarding the discrimination and abuses that I have had to endure while corporations have been allowed free rein producing millionaires and billionaires some of it through the use of my intellectual property . I am not the smartest , greatest , and best of anything or anybody . I just want to be appreciated for who I am and what I achieved. I do understand that I am by no means by myself. There have been many African-American inventors that have gone unrecognized and no doubt uncompensated /

The 18 million dollars that he recently set aside for initiatives for African-American girls is a nice gesture – but a band aid to what could have and should have been done . He has continued to disregard damages to the black inventor whose seemingly insignificant contribution is the reason why the Internet is in existence today . The reasons being my skin color , disability status and that millions of dollars are owed to me in compensation. To allow the kind of outright assault on my fourteenth and other constitutional rights with no response from the federal government of any credit to me has outraged me . The number “13” should stand for the violation of the 13th Amendment that supposedly ended slavery because that is the way that I have been treated in reference to all of my property both intellectual and real property – while this leadership has allowed it .

There is good in the Obama administration . For the first time , a Black even though of mixed race was elected as president . President Obama has not embarrassed himself as leader of the country . He has demonstrated to the entire world that Blacks are as capable as any other race of national leadership and participating on the world stage . As black people we knew that already as we are not an aberration of humanity , simply another race of human beings but still , Homo Sapiens .

However it is time for a real change in leadership in the country – one that President Obama promised in his campaign speeches but never brought . No doubt an obstinate Congress intent on stonewalling and blocking him from some of his goals played a significant role . However while putting forth a populous message , he has given overwhelming support to Wall Street and Corporate Interests.Corporate Elitism

What is still needed is real change that will break with 30 years of bad policies and politics that are taking the country in the wrong direction . A change that will be affirmative to the rights of the country’s citizens while being cognizant and actively involved in understanding that civil rights laws and constitutional laws some already on the books need to be enforced for African-Americans so as to ‘level the playing field.’ For the past 30 or more years the country has gone backwards on the subject of race aided by changes to laws regarding the establishment of prisons as an industry and eliminating social safety nets like ‘Welfare’ which kept the homeless and mentally ill off the streets .

It is time to look ahead towards leadership that is not necessarily bleeding liberal but realistic and pragmatic in understanding that the welfare of the entire country is good for all of its people .

Strange World , The Internet

Share with friends and family ...

The changes wrought to the Internet which have changed the way the world interacts were created by ideas shared with the Federal government by a black female inventor

There are no references of her anywhere in the history of the Internet

Black female inventor says that being omitted from Internet History has been devastating to her

” Sometimes the best intentions go awry . I understood the scope of the Internet but never imagined the extent to which it would be used . Obviously the Internet is good for some things , but should not be used for all things . In my writings to the Federal Government – I was thinking more along the lines of better commerce with businesses and consumers interacting more expediently ; increased educational opportunities through more information and services being available ; improvements to the world aided by knowledge and communications . Not that I ever anticipated all of the many uses of the Internet including negative applications – looking back I may have kept my thoughts to myself . Primarily I was looking at the business and commerce side and wanted to get in myself as an entrepreneur . However I never got the opportunity because from the time that my ideas regarding the commercialization of telecommunications were applied – the success of the Internet took off and has never looked back ” . Inventor’s 1990 Proposal to Federal Government The Inventor insists that her input made the difference between an Internet ( ARPANET based ) that had been retired and was practically finished to an Internet that was transformed and revitalized . The National Science Foundation which was in charge of the old Internet parked as the NSFNET employed Merit Networks in 1990 to commercialize the existing network(s) . Out of that came what was first called the Information Superhighway and morphed into the INTERNET – known today by only one word .

Yet ,nowhere in acknowledged Internet History is Dorothy Hartman’s name ever mentioned . Below are some documents from Wikipedia edited in 2005 discussing Internet History . Hartman had filed for a patent application in 2004 after exhausting other means of asking the government to acknowledge her contributions . Consequently there was a barrage of activity and filings by different ones regarding the origin(s) and evolution of the Internet , the sources known perhaps to the editors – but nowhere mentioned are there any notes of contributions from an African-American woman .

From the documents we can discern that there was a distinctive change in the Internet once COMMERCE was introduced and that this occurred in the early 1990’s . Hartman alleges that this change was initiated by the National Science Foundation upon its receipt of her proposals through several SBIR ( Small Business Innovation Research ) programs but she was never credited . Further , not only did the structure of the Internet change to what it is now which is an expansive evolving structure but the fields of Technology and Ecommerce grew upon its transformation .

” Now the low level trolls on the Internet – not all but some like web hosts , search engines , and security companies try to keep me from making a living on the Internet by sabotaging my websites to prevent visitors. As though the Internet is not big enough to accommodate us all . The irony of it allBeware Bad Web Hosts is that the Internet has provided more jobs , opportunities , and titles than any other Invention in modern history . Yet these people who have jobs because of my intellectual creativity – not the altruism of the federal government or billionaires made rich by the success of telecom – would deny me a living !

The world is strange and the Internet even stranger . To be discriminated against is horrible enough but to be disrespected when you know that the Internet exists as much for your intellectual creation of it as by technicians making its access possible through their gadgets and codes is humiliating and degrading . I blame a society which continously practices institutionalized racism and a weak administration that has not protected the civil rights of small inventors like myself . When I asked the Obama administration and his Attorney General to investigate the fraud in the Patent Office regarding my patent application – he did not . But rather he backed the corporations .

A patent application should never have been necessary . I only asked for recognition and compensation for my contributions . I am still seeking that and justice for the damages to my life based on racism , discrimination , and the oppression of people of color . NOWHERE WILL YOU FIND THE EXISTENCE OF THE MODERN DAY INTERNET , ITS PHYSICAL PRESENCE OR EVEN DISCUSSION ABOUT IT BEFORE 1990 .”

Black Internet Inventor Rights Suppressed

Share with friends and family ...

In addition to the intentional discrimination imposed by the federal government in reference to her intellectual property , Inventor is suffering abuse in her personal life because of the effects of having her property rights violated

Inventor’s home taken in what she alleges is an illegal mortgage foreclosure where fraud and perjury is used to take her home and create a $331,999.95 judgment against her for doing absolutely nothing wrong that she should lose her home

What kind of justice system allows the perpetrators to harass , destroy the inventor’s property cars and home , and using some deliberately pumped up mortgage violating all kinds of laws carry out an illegal mortgage foreclosure ?

A justice system based on skin color

Although mortgage foreclosure was predicated on perjury and fraud but was forced through a kangaroo trial in State Court – the inventor’s less than human stature ( and for those of you who feel differently this is facetious of course ) does not allow her to sue her perpetrators . This is the height of racist oppression in the justice system which are actions based upon retaliation for her standing up for her property rights . Drastic changes are needed in the justice system in the country regarding Blacks .

A federal judge in Philadelphia allowed these damages without leaving the Inventor any form of relief . The Inventor had filed a case in Federal Court in Philadelphia against what she alleges are racists and thugs with friends in the government and the courts where she had spent thousands of dollars in legal fees for the past 4 years that the cases have been running . The inventor alleges that the judge whom she requested recuse himself had disqualified himself according to her understanding of the law . She admits that she is not lawyer , but she can read . According to what she has read , the judge has disqualified himself but was retained on the case by the 3rd circuit court of appeals in what she alleges is in ‘lock step with the politics’. “These legal proceedings have been characterized by fraud , perjury , and blatant lies with defense attorneys being able to do whatever they like . Blacks have no rights in this country “. The advances in civil rights through the Kennedys’ and Lyndon Baines Johnson are long since gone . “Some Courts are run like a cartel when it comes to the rights of black people” . Go to and read these cases for a real civics lesson on what black people are living with in this country when it comes to the so called justice system .

So in addition to the $331,999.95 damages incurred on her , she has lost all the money that she put into the case and had a good chance of winning because the evidence and potential witnesses favored her . Now all is lost because the perpetrators have all been dismissed from any accountability – just around the time that the 21 days were up for the banks to respond to the federal summons regarding the part they played in the fraudulent mortgage foreclosure .

“In other words they can ruin me , but I cannot sue them , says Hartman.” I had filed in federal court and when it was time for the banks to answer in my lawsuit for their outrageous behavior , the judge writes a 16- page order dismisses all perpetrators from all charges and closing the case. See both cases the , State Court case Bank of New York Mellon et al vs. Dorothy Hartman or use the Case No. 120202759 . The case is listed under several different headings . The Case which was closed by the Federal Judge is Case No. 13-1909 , Dorothy Hartman vs. Bank of New York Mellon , City of Philadelphia et al . You will have to read her motions to get any intelligence or sense of what is going on in the case .

Pennsylvania has the highest incarceration of blacks than all of the states in the nation . Further the reports of its own research in the justice system finds that racism is prevalent in its courts .


Although the Inventor was proceeding Pro Se . She alleges that was not the problem . The point was for her not to win – the prejudice was in favor of the perpetrators. So when it was time for the banks to answer the summons to court – the Judge stopped the entire case preventing any further evidence from coming in . She is not sure how the judge shutting down the case in federal court will affect her appeal in state court as she is appealing the matter regarding her house . She is also considering appealing the federal court decision as she alleges that the decision is affected by fraud . The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania’s own Committee Report shows that racism is very much a part of the justice system in Pennsylvania . Her advice , when voting for judges , do your homework . She complains that the injustice imposed upon her by the National Science Foundation and USPTO under the federal government handling of her intellectual property has had far reaching and devastatingly oppressive effects on her life .

Internet Retired In 1989

Inventor’s rights are being suppressed because of the huge success of Internet 2

Internet 1 was retired in 1989

The inventor who alleges that she is most responsible for the success of today’s Internet says that she is still being unjustly treated . “The oppressors have taken my intellectual property and are now in the process of trying to destroy everything I worked for. Because of the success of the Internet and the wealth and now greed that it has contributed too – my rights along with the rights of African- Americans and many others are being grossly violated .”

The fact that the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the USPTO ruling to deny a patent to the Inventor for the Accessing Accessibility Process does not mean that she is not the owner and creator of the ideas – just that she would not receive the patent . Before 1990 , the history of the Internet involved the pioneering of the Internet and its building out by technology . The Inventor has never denied this Internet Beginning

and by the 1980’s the Internet consisted of a number of mini nets . Among them the bitnet , telenet , downet and others linked to its backbone the Arpanet . This Internet alleges Hartman was retired by 1990 and that with her ideas , the new Internet based on her ideas regarding Commercialization was formed . . She alleges that the National Science Foundation under the auspices of the Department of Commerce used her ideas to fund the changing of the Internet by Merit Networks . The new changes adapted from what she alleges were her proposal(s). You can find a complete copy of her proposal here Full Text of Hartman Proposal . She has never said that she built the Internet . However it was her ideas that changed it , revitalized it , and made it the success that it is today .

She has not been credited but slandered and her intellectual property as well as other property confiscated from her . Read more at her blogs about the depth of the injustice meted out to African-Americans who have contributed more to this country than what is realized .”Because I was not present in Washington , D.C. or Alexandria , Virginia when the federal government through these Small Business help programs took my intellectual property and awarded it to others does not mean that I do not exist . My ideas were there and now the Internet exists all over the world with capacity to exist outside of it because of my ideas . Like most inventors I meant my ideas to be used for Good , but there is always that other side that today seems to be more prevalent than ever. Over all I believe the communication and commerce factors leading to improvements in being able to solve world problems is helpful . Not just involving the Internet , there needs to be a fundamental change in this country regarding injustice to Blacks .

How did the Internet get so huge , it now reaches all over the globe ?

“It was not the riches and genius of technology” , says Hartman although technology has gotten rich and more ingenious because of the trillions of dollars produced by sales on the Internet created by her imagination


No , it was the creativity of this African-American woman that was quickly snatched up by the National Science Foundation and credit given to the ones who had been instrumental in building the Internet from the beginning in 1969.

Inventor, Age 44

Now that the Internet is becoming so pervasive as to become the Internet of ThingsWhat gratitude has been shown to me because of my contributions which made the economy rich and the country more powerful ? ” I am Treated like a worthless _igg_r with the ‘exceptional’ frauds , racists , and oppressors violating my civil and constitutional rights and taking everything away from me. There is something terribly wrong here .”

How did the Internet go from Internet Beginning to

and now this

How did we get to an Internet of Things ? Although Technology and ecommerce have continued to evolve , what happened between 1990 and now that made the difference in there being an Internet that is recognized all over the world even though there were telecom networks that existed from 1969 through 1989 ? There is unknown Internet History , Telecommunications History , and Information Technology History involving the contributions of a black inventor who is still fighting injustice regarding what she calls the giveaway of her intellectual property to credit and enrich others . Technology may have built it – not to take anything away from their importance and the government may have funded , but I invented it says Hartman and I deserve recognition , compensation , and an APOLOGY .

Where is Justice for Black People ?

Ferguson Missouri occurs across the country

Is police brutality the only problem?

What of the Supreme Court Decision to roll back minority progress by allowing states to set up voter ID requirements ?

” All I have done is help other people and tried to help myself. Because my contributions have been valuable my thanks has been in being ripped off with the government at the head of the line and my life made miserable by greedy , oppressive people ” , says inventor .
Ferguson , Missouri is in the courts of Pennsylvania . Blacks are not just discriminated against when it comes to police brutality – the courts play a role in the continued injustice to which blacks in general are continuing to be exposed . The inventor whose name and reputation has already been sullied because she has spoken out in defense of intellectual property that she contributed to the betterment of the country has thus far been criminalized for daring to speak about it . Although it is clear that One of Hartman’s Proposals to the Federal Government on Improving Telecommunications Ms. Hartman did correspond with the Federal Government before the cutting edges of the technology , her contributions were lost in the excitement that debuted with the Information Superhighway wrongly attributed to Vice President Al Gore . After 25 years , the government which has grown powerful and the many corporations that have become rich because of the changes which her writings initiated in the telecommunications industry have the profits and the glory. she is no where mentioned in the history of the Internet .

Additionally while the row was going on about Net Neutrality and a Free and Open Internet which Hartman contends was a ruse to hide what was going on behind the scenes – the Supreme Court was denying the extraordinary Writs of Certiorari and Mandamus which she filed with the court in a Pro Se capacity .

The smoke and mirrors debate about the Internet she claims was a ruse to keep hidden from the public the government’s taking of her rights to the Internet by the rulings of the Supreme Court to uphold the Federal Circuit Ct of Appeals upholding to the United States Patent and Trademark Office to deny a patent Hartman Patent Application for Process Which led to Internet 2 to her for the modern day Internet or Internet 2.

Hartman says that she is still considering additional legal action regarding her intellectual property rights because there is still evidence including affidavits and witnesses that have not been heard or reviewed in a courtroom. ” An application for a patent should never have been necessary , the government should have given me the kudos which I deserved . That could have been in the form of the funding that I asked for to start my own online business or a commendation of some kind . Something other than completely dismissing and disrespecting me .”

Now to add insult to injury because apparently in this post slavery society which still practices institutionalized racism – no matter what anyone with black skin does – he or she is just another “N_gg_r.” . The inventor complains that thus far in federal court in Philadelphia she is being subjected to more injustice with banks taking her home on a fraudulent mortgage foreclosure . Regarding the mortgage payments on her home , she alleges that with a 705 credit rating and automatic deductions from her bank account for payment – that she was denied a loan refinance . There is much more to the case and for those of you with access to you can follow the case(s) in Court . The Case numbers are Civil , No. 2:13-cv-01909 in District ( Federal court ) and No. 120202759 in Court of Common Pleas ( State court )She says ‘cases’ because there is more than one.

Why she is fighting the same case in two courts is something of which she has never heard . These types of abuses appear to be typical of what goes on in the Justice system when it comes to Justice for blacks . The law in the Courtroom appears to be ad hoc sort of made up as you go rather than practiced as traditional law . The inventor acting Pro Se filed to have the fraudulent foreclosure removed from state court to federal court because of what she alleged were violations of her civil and constitutional rights . Although she did try , it would practically be impossible for her to be able to hire the number of lawyers to represent her in legal cases that she has had to participate in to defend herself and her property . Beware when the government has grown powerful and made corporations rich with your intellectual property and ignores you because you are a woman and Black !!!

The inventor claims that the federal judge remanded the case back to state court without holding an evidentiary hearing and that both he and the state court judge have excluded from evidence thus far in these proceedings in excess of 70 documents which the inventor alleges support her contentions that these are matters for the federal court . ” My experience thus far with the justice system is that when it comes to the rights of black citizens in this country – it really does not matter what the law says . The first casualties are truth , facts, and evidence .

When will Justice see and the scales be balanced ? What about fraud and injustice in trials and other aspects of black life in America ? Ferguson , Missouri occur(s) everywhere and everyday in the lives of African-Americans in this country . Police Brutality is only the tip of the iceberg – injustice is too much a part of the justice system when it comes to Black people . The Inventor of the most prolific invention of the 20th Century , the Internet is supposed to be satisfied with anonymity and lack of payment for her contributions .

The lack of worth of Blacks as being accepted policy is being challenged by the ” Black Lives Matter “. There is so much to accomplish such as (a) the cessation of the taking of black lives by police brutality when they are supposed to serve and protect (b) to stop the school to prison pipeline for so many black youth (c) and the dismissive approach by the Courts to civil lawsuits like those that this inventor has been forced to undertake just by virtue of trying to defend her home and property from confiscation and theft by fraud . Instead of being able to enjoy the fruits of her labor and contributions to the world , she has instead been embattled with lawsuits to defend herself and her property.

Although the Civil Rights Act of 1964 did a lot to try to address the disparate and unequal treatment suffered by blacks , Court action since then most prevalently the movement of the Supreme Court by allowing States to require voter ID registration has taken the voting rights act backwards . It also upheld the Federal Appeals Court Opinion to Affirm the United States Patent and Trademark Patent Office denial of a patent to the inventor for the Internet . The Inventor alleges that the Patent Office Decision was flawed by fraud . A copy of that Opinion is here .13-1070.opinion.3-6-2013.1

The inventor’s home was vandalized in 2009 and she has been subjected to abuse and discrimination by high powered agencies who thus far have not been held accountable for their acts which include discrimination , vandalism, and conspiracy to defraud among other counts. She filed a Complaint about the matter(s) in federal court which include among other charges what she alleges is a fraudulent mortgage foreclosure to try and take her home. She says that she is being forced to litigate the same matter in both state and federal court – something she has previously never heard of – the same matter being tried in two courts . She expected that there would be a degree of difficulty as she is a minority . Further she is disabled and acting Pro Se . But the degree of bizarre rulings she alleges are unfathomable . She is still hoping to reach some level of litigation where the integrity of the law is practiced in spite of skin color . She is highly disappointed that although she has worked hard all of her life and has tried to help others as well as herself – in her later years she has come under intense attack by greed and institutionalized racism because of her achievements . My inventions make money and unfortunately I was dependent on the government for fairness as I had no money myself . Other inventions by Hartman can be found here Other Inventions by Hartman

Not only has she not been thanked but unceremoniously dumped from any credentials for intellectual property, although her inventions have contributed trillions of dollars to the economy and are used by the privileged and the powerful of the country . ” Truth is a casualty . What matters are the rich and famous and the millions of experts that have emerged as a result of my ideas of using cyberspace as medium in which to transactions [ That comprises the Internet ! ] ” I am still hoping that the matter regarding my intellectual property will still be heard in a Court of Law reviewing evidence and witness testimony . Perhaps the case may even be revisited and heard by the Supreme Court in some aspects as there are considerable violations of my intellectual property rights .”

The Black Lives Matter campaign has made more people aware of the intense oppression and abusive treatment still shown to people of color in a routine pattern of institutionalized racism across the country .Poll Shows More Awareness of the Plight of African Americans. Ferguson Missouri and injustice should not mark the status of black lives in America . We are 400 years post slavery ! It is time to get over it !!!!
