The 2012 – 2013 Failure of the Justice System


George Zimmerman! How does a man stalk, start a fight with, kills a teenager, and claim self-defense and then walk after the evidence has been presented? Be white in any town and kill a black person of any gender, age, or stature. It’s been proven again and again, and contrary to what white America says. Racism just showed itself as being very much alive. Sad to write this but I had to. I no longer believe in the justice system as anything just.

I suppose the answers should be forthcoming, but that joke of a trial was a sad joke. Try to prove me wrong and I’ll show you the eulogy of Emitt Till and Trayvon Martin and others unreported.

Daryl Davis: Showing the Way Toward True Integration


Unbelievable, I love the initiative of Daryl Davis. When I first read the title My eyes popped open wide. But after actually taking the time to listen to what Daryl Davis had to say it sunk in. While Some are calling this man an Uncle Tom or whatever else, he’s doing what should be done in the first place. Open up a dialogue to understand where the hatred came from and what could be done about it. Bold step, bold move, understanding what is considered the enemy and hoping to end the tide of violence from that side at least… You be the judge

I Keep Hearing Racism is Dead and Politics is Proving that Notion Wrong


A Confederate flag flies outside the State House in Columbia, South Carolina January...

Politics 2011-2012. Obama was shock to the republicans, there was not supposed to ever be a black president. But here he is. Since that win there has been a few changes to districts looking to shore up Republican wins (ie. Redistricting plans). I’m sure some genius will undoubtedly offer up some other explanation. But I think we’re done falling for lies and propaganda. The Picture to the left at the Columbia South Carolina STATE HOUSE is more than enough of an indicator. There, proudly displayed for all to see, the confederate flag flapping in the breeze; never mind what it means to the people of color.

But the blatant racism by the elected officials run even deeper than that. South Carolina has been in a heated debate over a State law that would require voters to show a State ID before they are allowed to vote. Federal officials say it could disproportionately keep black voters away from the polls. As we well know, many Americans never bother to get state IDs. Why the requirement now?

The response to the Federal Government from some of those ‘good ole boy’ states: “Each of our states are under assault right now by this administration,” Texas Governor Rick Perry said Saturday at a candidates’ forum in Charleston. “We may be under assault – South Carolina, they’re actually at war with you.” In case anyone has missed the war. Check out how much the State of Massachusetts is bleeding thanks to the healthcare bill Approved by Mitt Romney.  Sorry to tell you, but if you’re dumb enough to fall for rhetoric after all these years Then you don’t deserve better. You now have internet, investigate for yourselves.

Shamefully there is more: Former House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich has called Obama a “food stamp president” and suggested that low-income children should clean their schools to learn the value of work and replace unionized janitors. ‘AP‘ Newt Newt Newt, not everyone is heavily invested in Oil companies, and isn’t it illegal for underage children to be working? These are the candidates that are the role models of America? Dam, but we are not done yet. Ricky’s turn at bat.

And former Senator Rick Santorum said last week the coming election would be the most important since 1860, the year before the Civil War began. He has since changed the date to 1980, when conservative icon Ronald Reagan was elected president. Sadly, there is more, much more (SMFH).

“I hate to say it, but ever since the schools integrated (in the 1960s), it went downhill,” unemployed paralegal Vicki Cotterman said at a campaign stop for Perry in Walterboro on Thursday. “The white boys try to be like some of the black thugs – they go around with their pants down to their knees. It’s disrespectful.”Insurance agent Patti McBride said she believed Obama, a practicing Christian, actually is a Muslim because he has an unusual first name.”Our country was founded on Christianity, and now we have a Muslim with a Muslim name as the president, for God’s sakes,” McBride said.

And finally some recognition by African American Politicians: U.S. Representative Jim Clyburn, a South Carolina Democrat and the highest-ranking African American in Congress, says some candidates have been using coded phrases to play up racial tension.”What we hear more and more today is people picking up what I call 21st-century words and phrases to transmit the same thoughts that went into the political procedure years ago,” Clyburn told Reuters.”That’s the stuff of which dangerous activity is built.”‘THIS ISN’T THE ’60s ANYMORE’

The problem with that thought process is that it has been going on for years. We, African-Americans on the lower end of the scale have been complaining about it for years. And now with Obama as president, the gloves are off and racism no longer needs to hide. It seems America has an Agenda. Remove the N***r from office. Can it be said any other way? Looking at just this evidence from one report kind of says no.

This evidence, along with a few others; Troy Davis Execution / Murder (Coincidentally in the South), there seem to be a movement to send a message to African-Americans. Only this time it is not hiding behind corporate smokescreens or rhetorical messages. The undertones in the speeches of these Republicans have been more and more bold. A few have been chastised for going too far in recent years. But we know that was only because they got caught on camera: Historionics on Racism, Dare we forget Trent Lott when we look at this problem, oh and enjoy the music while you watch this idiocy.

When I take a careful glance at the headlines of the news, or hear the speeches of politicians I remember clearly what it means to be Black in America even today. Equality goes out the window on a whim. But this form of racism also hides another form of separatism (Racism) Americans need to pay attention to. Take it away Newt: Former House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich has called Obama a “food stamp president” and suggested that low-income children should clean their schools to learn the value of work and replace unionized janitors.

I think that means if you’re racist don’t be poor or you’re simply another N***r like us. A sad day in earth’s history and another sad truth to American politics, policies, freedom, and race relations. By these acts there has been another elevation of white supremacy in an unstated form, though clearly evident by their actions. When I look at the politics of today I remember one thing. A vote for any Republican is a vote against humanity. Black America, America you need to stand up and defend one another from this nonsense in America.

African American ~ NFISD Police Chief in Trouble for Calling one of his Officers a Negro o_O


Had to blog about this one. First I find the story about a Black Church owning a building with a kkk store, and now this. In Houston Texas,a sixty one year old African American Police Chief is in trouble for using what Fox Houston is calling racial Slur; He called one of his Black Officers a Negro. Wait, I did say Black Police Chief right? And according to Fox, Houston, this is a racially tinged word that is offensive to some. Now see here I want to write a good report, but I can’t.

Since when did it become a racial slur for a black man to call another black man a Negro. Isn’t that still on some of the U.S. Census and what we’re called when police bring us in?

But anyway. 61 year old Larry Patrick has been suspended with pay pending an investigation. And I’m still scratching my head on this one. But you can read the full story and get all the sordid details.

Black Church Own a KKK store in the South OMG


They went head to head in court. Now Rev. David Kennedy, right, is a happy man.

I almost fell out of my seat laughing when I read this story. Unbelievable Irony: A Judge in Laurens, SC ruled Wednesday that the building where a kkk store has been operating since 1996 is the rightful property of New Beginnings Baptist Church.

According to Reports, John Howard began operating his kkk museum in 1996. The building was deeded to Rev. David Kennedy in 1997 with a clause that allowed, Howard to operate his store until he died. Even more ironic is the fact that the deed was signed over to the black Baptist church by a klansman who was reportedly feuding with the group. Kennedy sued in 2008 in order to have the building inspected. On December 9th a Judge ruled in Kennedy’s favor. The AP reports that it is not clear however if the Judge’s decision means, Howard will have to vacate.

Needless to say that Howard is not happy and will not speak to the Press. According to reports, Howard was quoted as saying “If anything turns people off, they shouldn’t come in here,” this was in 2008 via a statement made to the AP, he finished with; “It’s not a thing in here against the law.” Oh that may change.

Needless to say the congregation is very happy about the ruling though some 200 members have been have left fearing reprisals by the klan.

There’s my report on this.

Well, you can view the entire story on Yahoo.
