If you are in a wheel chair and follow police instructions, don't self inflict a wound with a gun. The police will come, order you to put the gun down and shoot you for trying to put the gun down. This certainly puts a new spin on driving while Black. If you run from the police, they will shoot you. If you stay in your car and follow police instructions the police will shoot you. If you are trying to kill yourself while confined to a whee chair the police will shoot you. I wonder what the police will do if someone is mowing the grass.
I was pretty impressed with Cary Fiorina. Who did you think won the CNN debate last night?
With the events this last week, Obama has served up dinner for the conservatives. The conservatives are eating Jim Crow. I predict when Obama leaves office the facts will show he was the the greatest POTUS this country ever had. Millions of hard working Americans benefited by the Supreme Court decisions. When are the conservatives, specifically the Republicans, going to understand that the United States is a a nation of people, not about destroying the middle class and creating a feudal system.
Finally, the truth is being revealed that the United States has more homegrown terrorists than imported from overseas.
Who do we need to be afraid of? Black or White Americans?
Hate crime against a child
Kirstin Roberts looks at what a recent hate crime against an African American child says about our image of who is racist in our society.
In the 1950's a fourteen year old teenager (Emmett Till) was viciously murdered.in Mississippi. That event, more than any other atrocity, sparked the Modern Civil Rights Movement. Here we are again on the verge of the social unrest that defined that era. In many ways America has changed for the better. Millions of Americans who couldn't vote can now vote and discrimination in public places and the workplace is against the law. Slowly the rights of these Americans have eroded, highlighted by the Gestapo attitude and tactics against people of color that has resurfaced.
Police officers, security guards, or self-appointed vigilantes extrajudicially killed at least 313 African-Americans in 2012, according to a recent study. This means a black person was killed by a security officer every 28 hours. The report notes that it's possible that the real number could be much higher.
A black man had dinner at a strip mall and stood outside the restaurant waiting for his ride home when a White security guard attached him causing injury. The Black Man had baggy clothes, a hoodie , a cell phone and a blind man's cane. The police ruled that the assault by the security guard was justified.
Eleven teachers in Atlanta were convicted of violating standardized school test protocols. Not only were they fired from their teaching jobs, but prosecutors claimed that the Federal Organized Crime Statute applies to this case and could land the teachers in jail for twenty years. What makes this case so interesting is that this was an equal opportunity crime where White and Black teachers were involved. But, none of the White teachers were put on trial and won't face any jail time. What an interesting example how justice is equal in this country.
The charges against a Chicago policeman were dismissed for shooting a Black Woman in the back of the head. According to the news report, an off-duty policeman ordered a group of people at a park to stop being loud and one of the group pulled a gun. The policeman fired several times into the crowd striking an unarmed female in the back of the head. This sounds very suspicious. No gun was found and no one in the crowd was charged with pulling a gun. I guess making too much noise in a park gets the death penalty.
Remember, the President is smarter than the Republicans and everything they do is them playing right into his hands.
Also, by utilizing their Constitutional mandated duties they were accused of treason on this board.
In truth all of that was B.S. being pushed by those who have failed to grasp a basic understanding of how their government works.
A few days ago an unarmed Black Man fleeing from a murderous cop was shot eight times in the back in North Charleston, SC. The Blackman was stopped for having a broken tail light. Beware Black Men of America. Having a broken tail light is punishable by death.
I found this link to a video that all should see and hear.
Ted Cruz was born in Alberta Canada to a native Cuban and a mother born in the United States. If I use the same argument that Obama birthers used, he can't. Obama was born in the United States (Hawaii). I have a friend who father was born in Great Britain to an American GI and a British mother. My friend is classified as an alien and must have a Green Card.
No assertion is more correct, IMHO! And this relates to ALL groups as well.
Go to the link below to see how our country really is.
Pretty much as I expected:
Also discussed here is what "mother jones" is all about!
Eric Holder, correctly, found no evidence to charge Zimmerman with any civil rights violations.
Should McCain resign from office and apologize to the American people?
