Respectfully, CNN reporters, misinformation perpetuates miseducation. @ David Williams and @ Amanda Jackson, on Wed, June 12, 2019 , a recent article titled, “A fake California license plate didn't fool a motorcycle cop, or spell the state's name right” (see CNN original article https://www-m.cnn.com/2019/06/12/us/fake-califas-california-license-plate-trnd/index.html)
is misguided. I’d like to offer a reason from a historical and literary perspective as to just why the CA trucker did not attempt to misspell “California”. Primarily, a reason for the trucker’s decision to “Instead of the state's name, the plate said "CALIFAS," which is Spanish slang for California” as reported by CNN is not because it is Spanish slang but because it is an English translation of the Spanish Black Queen Calafía-the namesake of the State of California. The plural on Califa [sic] is for Calafía’s California to rightfully show ownership of the word. The name Calafía or Califa [sic] is relevant because: 1) Queen Calafía and her California monarchy is derived from the legendary, majestical all Black woman Amazonian golden island called “California” taught in the Spanish book by GARCÍ RODRÍGUEZ DE MONTALVO and incidentally 2) is the direct etymology of the invented and adopted state name, “California”.
Secondarily, it is safe to presume a California citizen knows how to spell “California” as he is a resident and the name is the most popular state, not to mention on practically every food item.
I, Ms. Tamra L. Dicus, am leading an effort to correct this California censored issue in its whitewashed Great Seal to dispel the omission of black women and women of color. For more information on this effort please visit: www.caliisme.com
