1. Well, suprisingly enough, I discovered that they are both black
I never knew Ken was black until now.

This means that there is a probability of being related. If they had been of different races, I would say no way.

4. Also, they were both born only a couple years apart
Maurice in 1946(?) and Kenneth in 1948

We know Kenneth was born in Cincinatti, but I can't get any information on Maurice's birthplace.

9. Oh, and also, I've heard stories about how African-Americans
...often took the names of their slave owners when they were freed.

Coincidentally, I am related to the Blackwell family, which was a very prominent Southern family that owned slaves, based out of Tennessee (I'm not 100 percent sure of the state, though, but they were in that area). Knowing this increases the chance of there being some connection.

19. Wikipedia gives K. Blackwell's birthdate as 2/28/1942.
Where did you read 1948? I saw it somewhere else around here too.

5. Your posting of pictures lead to my question
Blackwell has a site because he is running for OH Gov in 2 years. I say we give him no slack until he is behind bars!

3. Can you see a resemblance from this site?
Edited on Thu Dec-30-04 12:19 PM by clydefrand
Don't know how to put them side by side in the a post. Maybe someone else who knows can.

On Edit: I'd say there is...notwithstanding the skin color.

snippets:
BALTIMORE, Dec. 4 A federal prosecutor (Jonathan P. Luna) was found stabbed to death in a Pennsylvania creek Thursday after failing to show up at the trial of a rap artist and another man accused of dealing heroin.
==
The trial of aspiring rapper Deon Lionnel Smith and his onetime associate, Walter Oriley Poindexter, began on Monday. They were accused of heroin distribution and running a violent drug ring in part from their Stash House Records studio in Baltimore.

Ravenell was Smith's attorney.

We share his familys grief and will provide any support and assistance to help them through this difficult time.
- JOHN ASHCROFT

===ewwww, dark alliance connections? somebody stop me!!!! anyway, you can probably tell more about a man by what kind of lawyer he has. and Ravenell smells on the stinky side of the drug trade to me.

14. not so sure what the point is?
What my brother does means nothing to my actions.... so they may be related.... what's the connection to the election?

16. The main point would be that IF (big IF) the MSM knew & didn't mention....
.. that would prove (as if we needed it) their hands-off policy.

The MSM loooooves salacious stuff like this - can't tell me they wouldn't normally "report" it.

17. I asked this question somewhere on DU a long time ago...
Edited on Thu Dec-30-04 02:08 PM by kk897
...so I'm glad it's getting some attention today. When the latest thing happened in the Maruice case, he was on Headline News every 45 minutes or so, and I noted the resemblance and name then. (I was watching all day because I believe that was the day the Arnebeck case was going to be filed or some other momentous thing that was rumored to be a bombshell was about to happen).

Anyway, I tried for hours, several days in a row, to find out more about Blackwell's family. I know he has a brother, but I've yet to find his brother named. Also, Maurice may not be a brother but a cousin. I've looked on Ancestry.com, even. Thing is, Blackwell is a common name, and John (that's what the J. stands for) is obviously common as well.

I've been toying with the theory that JKB is some sort of operative. I mean, the guy's a Mason, on the CFR, in the Heritage Foundation, been a UN Ambassador, has a vita a mile long, but he's still pretty young for someone so connected. And so connected for someone who is essentially a local politician. You look at lists of names of people in these various organizations, and you recognize most of them until you come to Blackwell's name. Who? Before the election, no one had really ever heard of him.

Somehow, though, he's definitely become one of the "good ol' boys"; the question is, does he have a "handler" or are his actions simply those of someone with strongly conservative beliefs? Was his key position in the 2004 race orchestrated or happenstance?

Somehow, I think Maurice might have something to do with it, too. Operatives seem to run in families. Just a hunch. It's all just a hunch.

Edit: changed "Society" to "Foundation"
