Allen Jones has lived in San Francisco since 1960.

In the course of his activism on other matters concerning San Francisco, Jones noticed, and was surprised, as a 49er fan to hear that in December 2011, the NFL had loaned the San Francisco 49ers $200 million to build a new stadium 35 miles south of San Francisco.

Aware of the NFL’s "Commitment to the Community Letter" dated June 15, 2011 made it even harder to believe. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell promised to support communities that support the NFL. But six months later, in December 2011, the NFL owners voted to loan the 49ers $200 million to leave the Black community of San Francisco that had supported the team for the last 40 years of the team's 67 years being in the city.

Jones firmly believes any sports team has the right to take its business anywhere it can make the most profit. However, there is a right way to leave and a wrong way to leave. Jones believes something was seriouly wrong with how the team moved away from San francisco's struggling Black community.

Looking into the matter further, Jones discovered more blatant hypocrisy by elected city officials of San Francisco concerning the 49er departure. That has caused Jones to revolt as a fan of not only the 49ers but also as a fan of "Everyone's favorite city."

In respect for the struggling Bayview Hunters Point where Candlestick Park was located and respect for the name San Francisco, Jones felt the duty to fight back.

My Letter to SF Mayor Ed Lee

Honorable Mayor Edwin M. Lee,

For the last two years I have been publicly criticizing how the San Francisco Human Rights Commission is being run. There is no clearer bit of evidence then to look at the 2015 HRC calendar of regular scheduled meetings. For the entire year 2015, 23 scheduled meetings and 22 have been canceled.

Sure there may be a good reason for this i.e. advice from the City Attorney after it was revealed that an investigation into the actions of former commissioner Nazly Mohajer and yourself began. However, if you had no role in the actions of Ms. Mohajer as you and your liaison Nicole Wheaton Elliot claim, I urge you to address this issue.

I am aware of the fact that you were its director for five years and should know that it has spun out of control. But how can you claim clean hands when you shook hands with all four with ties to embarrassing and reprehensible acts.

For instance:

Larry Brinkin. SF Weekly, June 25, 2012 The Snitch reported: The warrant claims these e-mails contained images of children as young as perhaps a year old being sodomized by and performing oral sex on adult men. Zack3737@aol.com -- whom the police allege is Brinkin -- provided graphic commentary on the photos of interracial adult-child sex. Comments included "I loved especially the nigger 2 year old getting nailed. Hope you'll continue so I can see what the little blond bitch is going to get. White Power! White Supremacy! White Dick Rules!"

Less than a month later July 5, 2012 The Bay Area Reporter reported: Current director Theresa Sparks and the city were sued by a former staffer. This matter was settled by the city for $210,000.00.

Larry Brinkin, Theresa Sparks, Zula Jones and Nazly Mohajer all worked under or alongside of you as director of the agency or mayor of San Francisco.

I am sure that the San Francisco media has no intention of reminding you that the San Francisco Human Rights Commission was first formed to help fight against discrimination against Blacks in San Francisco in 1964. Fifty years later it appears as though this commission is working for Ed Lee.

How can you claim that you are doing everything you can to be transparent and not clean house of a commission that evidence demands you do so?

My relentless pursuit and demand for new leaderships at the Human Rights Commission has to do with the fact that when it comes to the human rights of SF Blacks, the current leadership, including you as mayor have, failed the Black community miserably. And when it is this blatant, you cannot hide behind the excuse of implicit bias.
