FBI To Probe Black Church Burnings….(Yawn)

In the space of ten(10) days, three African-American places of worship were reduced to smoldering ruins in the State of Louisiana, and now we are told that the FBI has gotten involved in the Investigations.
Before you break out the champagne, however, ask yourselves how many African-American Churches have been targeted by white domestic terrorists, using arson as a weapon over the years?
Then ask yourselves, how many of these cowardly punks have been held accountable by local, state or Federal law-enforcement authorities?
Here are a few facts from 2015.

  • June 30: Mount Zion AME Church in Greeleyville, South Carolina. The historic black church burned down on June 30. A federal law enforcement official told the AP that the fire wasn’t intentionally set, and the FBI currently thinks it was probably caused by a lightning strike.
  • June 26: Glover Grove Baptist Church in Warrenville, South Carolina. The mostly black church burned down on June 26. Investigators don’t know if it was intentional or an accident, but they “observed no element of criminal intent.” The fire has officially been classified as “undetermined” because investigators couldn’t rule out the possibility of an accident.
  • June 26: Greater Miracle Apostolic Holiness Church in Tallahassee, Florida. The mostly black church was destroyed by a fire on June 26. It was likely set off by an electrical short, so it’s not believed to be arson or a hate crime.
  • June 24: Briar Creek Baptist Church in Charlotte, North Carolina. The predominantly black church was burned down on June 24. Investigators are treating the case as arson, but there’s no evidence it was a hate crime.
  • June 23: God’s Power Church of Christ in Macon, Georgia. The mostly black church burned down on June 23. The fire is being investigated as an arson, but local and federal law enforcement agents have said there’s no evidence yet of a hate crime.
  • June 23: Fruitland Presbyterian Church in Gibson County, Tennessee. This is a mostly white church, and it was struck by lightning on June 23. But it’s been widely included in reports of church fires.
  • June 21: College Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee. Officials said that someone on June 21 intentionally set fire to a church-owned van and straw near the mostly black church, but the church itself wasn’t burned. Investigators have confirmed that the fire was a case of arson. A spokesman for the Knoxville Police Department toldlocal news station WATE that it was being investigated as an act of vandalism rather than a hate crime, because the suspect didn’t leave any message or indication of the reason for the crime.

  • According to the National Fire Protection Association (via the Los Angeles Times’s Matt Pearce), firefighters responded to an average of 1,600 fires at churches a year from 2007 to 2011. That comes out to an average of 31 fires a week.

The foregone was in just 2015. according to [Vox.com.]

Let us understand something here, these are acts of terror being carried out by the descendants of ignorant white terrorists who were doing the same thing in the ’50s and ’60s.
As for the reason that no one is ever held accountable? In many cases, the ones doing the burning are wearing police uniforms, or they are part of the same white supremacists’ groups that the cops belong to.
By the FBI’s own account over a decade ago, law enforcement has been infiltrated by white Supremacists, Skinheads, and Neo-Nazis and have become a problem.
In this medium, I have written several Articles on this phenomenon and there have been independent reporting on the subject.
Yet in America, the definition of “Terror” has been reduced to acts committed by Muslims.
The almost daily acts of “Terror” being committed by white mas-murderers upon American citizens of all colors are reduced to back and forth arguments about gun rights and mental illness.

The narrative coming from Law-enforcement in this latest string of arson church fires, as have the narrative through time, is that they are probing to see if there are any links between the different fires!
A link to what?
What does it matter whether or not there is a link between perpetrators who set two or all three of the churches ablaze? If there is no nexus does it mean that the churches are any less burned?
If there is no established nexus, does it mean that the one or more individuals who burned those churches are not domestic terrorists?
And if they acted separately, independently and in no coordination with each other does that mean that the acts are any less terroristic?

Investigation underway after three ‘suspicious’ fires at black Louisiana churches

The dangerous reality is that there is hardly any attention being paid to the rapid growth of white supremacists, Neo-nazis and skinhead groups which sprung up during Barack Obama’s eight years in office, and are emboldened to act without fetter under Donald Trump.
What the FBI is concerned with infiltrating, are innocent Black activists who demonstrate and speak out against White Neo-nazis operating as police officers and killing unarmed Black people.
To add insult to injury, according to [Salon.com] (in the face of Rising Extremism, Donald Trump’s Department of Homeland Security disbanded its Domestic Terror Unit).
The unmitigated truth is that Domestic Terrorism has been on the rise in America and now the people in those groups feel empowered to act because Donald Trump referred to them as “fine people.”

The full context and consequences of the rise and spread of white nationalism across America, is yet to be understood, as there is a refusal by authorities to accept that it is even a problem.
As more and more information surfaces of police officers being members of neo-nazi groups, municipalities and police departments have hunkered down and refused to see the problem of unwarranted lethal police-civilian encounters for what they truly are.
With that mentality, it is impossible to source accurate data on the loss of life, loss of liberty and destruction of property this is causing, particularly in the Black Community.
Having the FBI investigate should offer no comfort to the Black community. The FBI is no greater friend to the Black community than the local hicks who double as clans-men and cops.
The FBI is interested only in infiltrating and disrupting black protest groups which are simply demanding justice for the atrocities committed by white nationalist cops who murder without accountability.

Long Before Columbus: How Africans Brought Civilization To America

Blacks have been in America long, long, long before America was a nation.
African American scholars like Dr. Ivan van Sertima were laughed at for decades until now.
There is now undisputed scientific proof that the first Americans were descended from Africans or Australian aborigines, according to evidence in a new BBC documentary. Dozens of their skulls and cave writings have been found dating back to 50,000 years. The skulls, one named ‘Lucia’ by Scientists, have definite and distinct Negroid facial features like those of Africans, New Guineas or Australian Aborigines. [www.nairaland.com]

Contrary to popular belief, African American history did not start with slavery in the New World. An overwhelming body of new evidence is emerging which proves that Africans had frequently sailed across the Atlantic to the Americas, thousands of years before Columbus and indeed before Christ. The great ancient civilizations of Egypt and West Africa traveled to the Americas, contributing immensely to early American civilization by importing the art of pyramid building, political systems and religious practices as well as mathematics, writing and a sophisticated calendar.
The strongest evidence of African presence in America before Columbus comes from the pen of Columbus himself. In 1920, a renowned American historian and linguist, Leo Weiner of Harvard University, in his book, Africa and the discovery of America, explained how Columbus noted in his journal that Native Americans had confirmed that “black skinned people had come from the south-east in boats, trading in gold-tipped spears.”[globalresearch.ca]
These important details surreptitiously haven’t made it into( his-story) books[sic]

One of the first documented instances of Africans sailing and settling in the Americas were black Egyptians led by King Ramses III, during the 19th dynasty in 1292 BC. In fact, in 445 BC, the Greek historian Herodotus wrote of the Ancient Egyptian pharaohs’ great seafaring and navigational skills. Further concrete evidence, noted by Dr. Imhotep and largely ignored by Euro-centric archaeologists, includes “Egyptian artifacts found across North America from the Algonquin writings on the East Coast to the artifacts and Egyptian place names in the Grand Canyon.”
In 1311 AD, another major wave of African exploration to the New World was led by King Abubakari II, the ruler of the fourteenth century Mali Empire, which was larger than the Holy Roman Empire. The king sent out 200 ships of men, and 200 ships of trade material, crops, animals, cloth and crucially African knowledge of astronomy, religion and the arts.

African explorers crossing the vast Atlantic waters in primitive boats may seem unlikely, or perhaps, far fetched to some. Such incredible nautical achievements are not as daunting as they seem, given that
numerous successful modern attempts have illustrated that without an oar, rudder or sail ancient African boats, including the “dug-out,” would certainly have been able to cross the vast ocean in a matter of weeks.History: How African Muslims “Civilized Spain”
As time allows us to drift further and further away from the “European age of exploration” and we move beyond an age of racial intellectual prejudice, historians are beginning to recognize that Africans were skilled navigators long before Europeans, contrary to popular belief.
Of course, some Western historians continue to refute this fact because, consciously or unconsciously, they are still hanging on to the 19th-century notion that seafaring was a European monopoly.

After all, history will tell you that seafaring is the quintessential European achievement, the single endeavor of which Europeans are awfully proud. Seafaring allowed Europe to conquer the world. The notion that black Africans braved the roaring waters of the Atlantic Ocean and beat Europeans to the New World threatens a historically white sense of ownership over the seas.
When most people think about ancient Mexico, the first civilizations that come to mind are the Incas, Aztecs and the Maya. However, during the early 1940’s archeologists uncovered a civilization known as the Olmecs of 1200 BC, which pre-dated any other advanced civilization in the Americas.

The Olmec civilization, which was of African origin and dominated by Africans, was the first significant civilization in Mesoamerica and the Mother Culture of Mexico.
Olmecs are perhaps best known for the carved colossal heads found in Central Mexico, that exhibit an unmistakably African Negroid appearance. Ancient African historian Professor Van Sertima has illustrated how Olmecs were the first Mesoamerican civilization to use a written language, sophisticated astronomy, arts and mathematics and they built the first cities in Mexico, all of which greatly influenced the Mayans and subsequent civilizations in the Americas. “There is not the slightest doubt that all later civilizations in [Mexico and Central America], rest ultimately on an Olmec base,” once remarked Michael Coe, a leading historian on Mexico.

Africans clearly played an intricate role in the Olmec Empire’s rise and that African influence peaked during the same period that ancient Black Egyptian culture ascended in Africa.
A clear indicator of pre-Columbus African trans-Atlantic travel is the recent archeological findings of narcotics native to America in Ancient Egyptian mummies, which have astounded contemporary historians. German toxicologist, Svetla Balabanova, reported findings of cocaine and nicotine in ancient Egyptian mummies. These substances are known to only be derived from American plants. South American cocaine from Erythroxylon coca and nicotine from Nicotiana tabacum. Such compounds could only have been introduced to Ancient Egyptian culture through trade with Americans.

Similarities across early American and African religions also indicate significant cross-cultural contact. The Mayans, Aztecs and Incas all worshipped black gods and the surviving portraits of the black deities are revealing. For instance, ancient portraits of the Quetzalcoatl, a messiah serpent god, and Ek-ahua, the god of war, are unquestionably Negro with dark skin and wooly hair. Why would native Americans venerate images so unmistakably African if they had never seen them before? Numerous wall paintings in caves in Juxtlahuaca depict the famous ancient Egyptian “opening of the mouth” and cross libation rituals. All these religious similarities are too large and occur far too often to be mere coincidences.

Professor Everett Borders notes another very important indication of African presence, which is the nature of early American pyramids. Pyramid construction is highly specialized. Ancient Egypt progressed from the original stepped pyramid of Djosser, to the more sophisticated finished product at Giza. However, at La Venta in Mexico, the Olmecs made a fully finished pyramid, with no signs of progressive learning. Olmecian and Egyptian pyramids were both placed on the same north-south axis and had strikingly similar construction methods. Tellingly, all of these pyramids also served the same dual purpose, tomb and temple.

Ancient trans-Atlantic similarities in botany, religion and pyramid building constitute but a fraction of the signs of African influence in ancient America. Other indicators include, astronomy, art, writing systems, flora and fauna.
Historically, the African people have been exceptional explorers and purveyors of culture across the world. Throughout all of these travels, African explorers have not had a history of starting devastating wars on the people they met. The greatest threat towards Africa having a glorious future is her people’s ignorance of Africa’s glorious past.

Pre-Columbus civilization in the Americas had its foundation built by Africans and developed by the ingenuity of Native Americans. Sadly, America, in post-Columbus times, was founded on the genocide of the indigenous Americans, built on the backs of African slaves and continues to run on the exploitation of workers at home and abroad.
Clearly, Africans helped civilize America well before Europeans “discovered” America, and well before Europeans claim to have civilized Africa. The growing body of evidence is now becoming simply too loud to ignore. It’s about time education policy makers reexamine their school curriculums to adjust for America’s long pre-Columbus history.

In fact when Christopher come-rob-us arrived (by accident no less), the Moors from Africa were already living in America, having arrived from around the 11th Century.
Blacks have been under white boot-heels since then.
The changing face of America is the best thing for all Blacks including people from the Caribbean who live in America. It is the combined numerical strength of a majority-minority Democratic voting block which is, and will continue to put to rest once and for all the vexing issue of toxic racism in America.
Those who believe that blacks will get better jobs, better education, better opportunities by fighting against more minorities in America, absolutely needs an education on America’s history to present .[www.globalresearch.ca]

Virginia Cop Identified As Part Of White Nationalist Group

Leaked chat logs reveal that Daniel Morley, a school resource officer, recruits for Identity Evropa.

By Andy Campbell


A police officer has been connected to white nationalist group Identity Evropa, joining a growing list of public employees who have been identified in a gargantuan leak of the group’s chat logs.
Daniel Morley, 31, a school resource officer at L.C. Bird High School in Virginia, holds a side gig as an organizer for Identity Evropa, a group noted for its part in the organizing of the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville in 2017. The group (also known as the “American Identity Movement”) tasked Morley with helping new recruits through the application process. 
He was first identified by anti-fascist activists scouring through hundreds of thousands of messages leaked by Unicorn Riot, an independent media organization.
Morley been suspended from his job at the high school, and Chesterfield County Police Chief Jeffrey Katz recommended he be fired pending a state-mandated disciplinary process, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

“We are concerned and committed to determining if there is any truth to these allegations,” Katz said Monday. “There is absolutely no place for intolerance or prejudicial behavior in public service, and we will not tolerate affiliations which even remotely lend themselves to predispositions of bias.”
Morley ― using the moniker “Danimal876” ― had been posting on the white nationalist group’s private chat server since at least 2017, according to The Daily Beast. He used that handle on multiple platforms, including the white supremacist forum Stormfront, to espouse racist views and engage with likeminded bigots as far back as 2009.
On Identity Evropa’s server, he actively worked on recruitment. “Good afternoon newcomers to IE! I’m the new pledge coordinator,” he wrote in September, according to the Daily Beast. “My job is to help guide people through the process of applying to IE and becoming full members of this great organization. If you have any questions about what you need to do next, DM me and I’ll get back to you.”

In August of 2018, the Chesterfield County Police Department posted a video of Morley, in which he introduced himself as the high school’s new resource officer.“I want to ensure that the children of this county get to have the same safe childhood that I did growing up,” he says in the short clip.

Unicorn Riot’s leak of more than 700,000 messages has led to numerous groundbreaking reports about white nationalism, particularly as it pertains to public figures and employees in the United States.
HuffPost reported exclusively this week that seven members of the U.S. military were working directly with Identity Evropa, helping the group recruit on campuses and in cities across the country. There’s been reporting on the group’s efforts to support prominent white supremacists in office like Iowa Rep. Steve King; legitimize itself and recruit through college groups like Turning Point USA; and even infiltrate the GOP head-on.
Since Unicorn Riot’s drop, Identity Evropa attempted to rebrand by renaming itself the “American Identity Movement.”


A Suspect In New Zealand Mass Shootings Appears To Be A White Supremacist

In a manifesto, the alleged gunman said he was motivated by American extremism.

Our hearts are broken we grieve with the innocent victims of hate in New Zealand.

A man accused of opening fire Friday at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, killing dozens of worshippers, appears to have been motivated by white supremacy and extremism that he saw in the United States.
During a news conference, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison characterized the alleged shooter as an “extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist.” Four suspects were taken into custody Friday in connection with the attack. The alleged gunman was later charged with murder. Read more here:https://www.huffpost.com/entry/new-zealand-shooter-suspected-white-supremacy_n_5c8b2451e4b0db7da9f17320

Well, What Do You Know? Turns Out The Fan Involved In The Argument With Russell Westbrook Is A MAGAt

Stephen A. Crockett Jr.

On Monday night, Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook got into a verbal altercation with a Utah Jazz fan.
I don’t know the fan, but I’ve driven through Utah and I believe Russell Westbrook’s version of whatever he says happened because the entire state of Utah is just one big hole of weird whiteness.

According to the 2010 census, 89.2 percent of Utah’s population is white. In fact, Utah’s entire black population plays for the Utah Jazz.Anyway, during the incident, Westbrook was recorded telling a Jazz fan, “I’ll fuck you up. You and your wife.”

After the game, Westbrook claimed that the fan told him to “get down on your knees like you’re used to.” Westbrook called the comments disrespectful and racial.

Well, it turns out that the fan, Shane Keisel, has social media, and his social media is a feast, no, a buffet….a cornucopia of racist shit, because Shane Keisel, it turns out, is a shit heel.
In one post he calls someone a “nigger boy.”

In another, he punctuated a race-baiting tweet with “MAGA”

In another, he tweeted that an African country looked like a “shithole to him.”

View image on Twitter

He also claimed before the game that someone needs to kick Westbrook’s ass.

Embedded video

Now that Keisel has been exposed, he’s deleted his Twitter account and has gone back to playing victim and acting as if this entire incident was an enraged black man overreacting and threatening to beat him and his 100-pound wife up. Oh, why did he bring up his wife’s weight to add into the narrative of a helpless white woman being berated by an angry black man? It’s all bullshit. Keisel been on his race-baiting bullshit and Utah will always be weird, and not in a good way.


Manafort Sentence Exposes Racial Injustice In America’s Courts

From the start, T.S. Ellis the Federal Judge who would hear evidence against Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort seemed agitated and angry that Paul Manafort was even brought in for trial. The Reagan appointee chided Prosecutors that Manafort was only before him because they wanted to get at Donald Trump.
At the time Ellis made those statements many people were aghast that a judge could be that blatantly political.

Ellis was openly hostile to Prosecuting attorneys, repeatedly interrupted them, told them to stop using the word “oligarch” to describe people associated with Manafort because it made him seem “despicable,” and objected to pictures of Manafort’s luxury items they planned to show jurors. “It isn’t a crime to have a lot of money and be profligate in your spending,” Ellis told prosecutors during the trial. (according to yahoo news.com)

If you thought that was beyond weird and despicable, yesterday Judge T.S. Ellis, in sentencing Paul Manafort, pulled the curtains away and displayed the two separate justice systems in America for everyone to see.
The Judge imposed a 47-month prison sentence and a $50,000 fine in conjunction with restitution in the sum of just over $24 million, which Manafort is obligated to repay.
In handing down the rather light sentence which falls way below Federal sentencing guidelines and the potentially 20-years to life Manafort could have been given the Judge commented, “Clearly the guidelines were way out of whack on this.
“I was surprised I did not hear you express regret for engaging in wrongful conduct,” Ellis told Manafort, nevertheless he gave Paul Manafort a light slap on the wrist.

Most shocking of all, (1) the Judge argued, Manafort “is not before the court for any allegations that he, or anyone at his direction, colluded with the Russian government to influence the 2016 election.”
That is a tact taken by Manafort’s Lawyers, Trump’s Lawyer Rudolph Guiliani, and Donald Trump himself.
(2) Ellis extolled his(Manafort’s) “otherwise blameless” life in which he “earned the admiration of a number of people” and engaged in “a lot of good things.”
For the record, Paul Manafort will face a DC Judge for similar crimes next week for sentencing.
Maybe next week the Obama appointee, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson will not interpret Manafort’s Teflon ability to escape prosecution for his crimes as ” a blameless life.”

Manafort was convicted after prosecutors accused him of hiding from the U.S. government millions of dollars he earned as a consultant for Ukraine’s former pro-Russia government. After pro-Kremlin Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s ouster, prosecutors said, Manafort lied to banks to secure loans and maintain an opulent lifestyle with luxurious homes, designer suits, and even a $15,000 ostrich-skin jacket.

All across America and right there in the Commonwealth of Virginia Black people are being incarcerated for far longer periods of time, for significantly less than what Paul Manafort did.
Not only did Manafort commit numerous white collar crimes, he did not see fit to acknowledge his wrongs, he forced the system to find him guilty.
Which absolutely is his right, but a little fact which lines up with what Judge Ellis was forced to acknowledge, that Paul Manafort had not expressed any regret for engaging in wrongful conduct.

In 2018 43-year old Crystal Mason was sentenced to 5-years in prison——-Her crime, not knowing that as a former Felon she was not allowed to vote.
“You have to go vote!” Mason’s mother said, according to her attorney, J. Warren St. John, who spoke to NPR.
Mason grabbed her keys and set out for her local precinct. When she got there, she found out that her name was not on the voter roll so she was given a provisional ballot. An election worker stuck around to walk her through the form.
She used her current license and her current address, St. John says.”She had a good faith belief that she could vote,” St. John says. “She would have never voted if she knew she was not allowed to.”The next time she thought about that night she was being arrested.
Crystal Mason is serving her five-year term for doing her civic duty and was completely ignorant of the fact that she was not allowed to vote.

According to the New York Times African-American defendants get more time behind bars — sometimes twice the prison terms of whites with identical criminal histories — when they commit the same crimes under identical circumstances. It also shows how bias on the part of individual judges and prosecutors drives sentencing inequity.
The Florida Legislature has been wrestling with this issue for decades. In the 1980s, for example, it tried to change sentencing policies that varied widely from place to place by creating sentencing guidelines. Today, prosecutors assign defendants points — based on the seriousness of their crime, the circumstances of their arrest and whether or not they have prior convictions — to determine the minimum sentence required by law.
In a fair system, black and white defendants who score the same number of points under this formula would spend the same time beyond bars. But The Herald-Tribune found that judges disregard the guidelines, sentencing black defendants to longer prison terms in 60 percent of felony cases, 68 percent of serious, first-degree crimes and 45 percent of burglaries. In third-degree felony cases — the least serious and broadest class of felonies — white Florida judges sentenced black defendants to 20 percent more prison time than white defendants. (NYT)

Who Is Paying Attention To The White Homegrown Terrorists?

Well over a decade ago the FBI warned of the potential consequences — including bias — of white supremacist groups infiltrating local and state law enforcement, indicating it was a significant threat to national security.
According to (pbs.org) in a 2006 bulletin, the FBI detailed the threat of white nationalists and skinheads infiltrating police in order to disrupt investigations against fellow members and recruit other supremacists.
The bulletin was released during a period of scandal for many law enforcement agencies throughout the country, including a neo-Nazi gang formed by members of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department who harassed black and Latino communities.
Similar investigations revealed officers and entire agencies with hate group ties in IllinoisOhio, and Texas. (pbs.org).

To date, I know of no real plan which has been put in place to deal effectively with this dangerous scourge.
According to the (pbs.org) article, the bulletin though heavily redacted, identified white supremacists in law enforcement as a concern, because of their access to both “restricted areas vulnerable to sabotage” and elected officials or people who could be seen as “potential targets for violence.” The memo also warned of “ghost skins,” hate group members who don’t overtly display their beliefs in order to “blend into society and covertly advance white supremacist causes.”

In the time since that report has been issued countless people of color have been killed by American Police. The vast majority of those killed have been African-American, male though women are not exempt.
No one really knows the exact number of unarmed people who have been killed by so-called law enforcement because there are no requirements for law enforcement to give an accounting to the FBI when they have encounters with members of the public which ends with fatalities.

Despite those warnings, the then FBI Director, James Comey told police officers at a national conference that because of insufficient data on the use of force, “Americans actually have no idea” whether racial bias in policing is really an epidemic.
At the time Comey made those comments a lot of things came full circle in my mind.
For years prior to Comey’s statements, I wondered, sometimes aloud why African-Americans were delighted when the Feds took over an investigation into abuse of black people.
The FBI — COINTELPRO, comes to mind when I see Black leaders delight at the Feds taking over an investigation. I never understood why.
Pointing to public outrage over police killings of African-Americans, Comey said “the absence of good information” and data has aided in the growing belief that police officers target particular communities”.
“That is the narrative,” he told attendees of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. “It is a narrative driven by video images of real misconduct, possible misconduct and perceived misconduct.”
In other words, the shocking video evidence which shocks our sensibilities over and over again, is not enough to prove that cops do target particular communities. Or in other words, the black community.

The Obama Justice Department under Attorney General Eric Holder did what it could in the time they had, to hold some of the police departments with the most egregious complaints against them accountable.
The Justice Department under Trump headed by Jefferson Beauregard Sessions 111 walked back many if not most of those gains.
So it came as no surprise when we learned this.

Coast Guard officer arrested, was planning ‘to kill almost every last person on earth.

(Photo from U.S. District Court documents)

Prosecutors say Lt. Christopher Hasson, 49 aU.S. Coast Guard officer, an avowed white nationalist, and drug addict, has been arrested and charged with being a domestic terrorist intending to murder as many innocent civilians as possible.
Agents of the FBI Baltimore Field Office and the Coast Guard Investigative Service on Friday, February 15, charged Hasson with firearms and drug charges, according to a motion to detain him pending trial.
Now, this guy is also a drug addict who authorities say is on the drug Tramadol. He allegedly dreams of killing everyone on earth but was quite willing to start with journalists like Chris Hayes and Ari Melber of (MSNBC)and Democrats he called traitors, including Virginia Senator Tim Kaine. Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and others. He also said he wanted to gather and stockpile guns, food, disguises, and survival supplies.

That was not just a fantasy, he actually gathered some of the things he said he wanted to gather, and so we have to presume that if he was not stopped he would have made good on his intentions.
This brings us to the million dollar question.
“If they are in Sheriff’s departments and other police departments in the armed forces what exactly is the level of threat they pose to the country.
What exactly is the threat level to people of color or people with whom they disagree politically or differ racially?

Literally every week there is a mass shooting somewhere in the United States. The vast majority of those shootings are done by some white guy who has some beef with everybody else.
Never mind that, the emphasis is on ripping babies from their parents because those parents are running from violent death.
The emphasis is on criminalizing people for smoking or selling pot and deporting them.
Others are swept up in mass raids, criminalized and their lives ruined anyway.
In the meantime, the mass hysteria created around Muslim people is still rampant to the point, even an elected US Representative is unable to speak out against Israel’s aggression against the Palestinian people it has under its bootheels, without being branded an anti-Semite. Who is paying attention to the threat posed by these white homegrown terrorists?
Thats the question.

Colin Kaepernick Settles Collusion Case Against The NFL

Colin Kaepernick ended his legal battles with the National Football League on Friday after initially accusing owners of colluding to keep him from playing over his national anthem protest. In identical statements on Friday, the NFL and Kaepernick’s attorney, Mark Geragos, said the grievance was resolved. The NFL also said it had settled a similar complaint filed by Eric Reid.  “For the past several months, counsel for Mr. Kaepernick and Mr. Reid have engaged in an ongoing dialogue with representatives of the NFL,” the statement said. “As a result of those discussions, the parties have decided to resolve the pending grievances. The resolution of this matter is subject to a confidentiality agreement so there will be no further comment by any party.”

Kaepernick filed his grievance against the NFL in 2017, accusing team owners of violating the league’s collective bargaining agreement by colluding to keep him off a team. Kaepernick sparked national debate in 2016 when he knelt at a football game during the national anthem. A San Francisco 49ers quarterback at the time, Kaepernick described his act as a form of silent protest against police brutality and racial injustices in the United States. Critics of the quarterback, including President Donald Trump, accused him of disrespecting the American flag and the military.  Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the 49ers at the end of that season and entered free agency, which would allow him to play with other teams. But he was unable to sign with a new team.

Reid, who joined Kaepernick in the kneeling protest, fared much the same when he became an unsigned free agent in 2018. He filed his own grievance against the NFL in May 2018. (Reid ultimately signed a new contract with the Carolina Panthers in September.) The NFL Players Association released a statement on Friday applauding the settlement.V
“We are not privy to the details of the settlement, but support the decision by the players and their counsel,” the association said. 
The NFL and Geragos did not specify the terms of the agreement. Charles Robinson, a senior NFL reporter for Yahoo, noted in a tweet on Friday: “Sources previously said Kaepernick would only withdraw if a lucrative settlement was secured.”


Judge Blocks Wisconsin GOP’s Lame-duck Voter Suppression: “Not A Close Question”

Judge strikes down Scott Walker’s vote-suppression measure, but Republicans will fight on — at taxpayer expense

A federal judge ruled last week that Wisconsin Republicans violated a federal court order by approving restrictions on early voting and other election issues during a lame duck session before the new Democratic governor was sworn in.
U.S. District Judge James Peterson blocked a law signed by outgoing Republican Gov. Scott Walker that limited early voting to two weeks before the election and restricted in-person absentee voting and the forms of ID that can be used to vote.
Peterson wrote that the legislation violated a 2016 court order that blocked the state from making similar changes.“This is not a close question,” Peterson wrote. “The three challenged provisions are clearly inconsistent with the injunctions that the court has issued in this case.”In that case, Peterson ruled that the state’s voter ID and limits on in-person absentee voting were unconstitutional, the Wisconsin State Journal reported. The case was appealed to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals which is yet to rule on the matter.The state argued that the new laws were different from the 2016 legislation, which Peterson rejected.

“If the court accepted defendants’ argument, it would mean that a legislative body could evade an injunction simply by reenacting an identical law and giving it a new number,” he wrote.
The election restrictions were part of a larger set of bills passed by Wisconsin Republicans during last year’s lame duck session that were signed by Walker right before he was replaced by newly-elected Democratic Gov.

Racist Shows Up To Harass Black Woman At Press Conference Announcing He Won’t Be Charged For Harassing Black Woman

There is something about some of us Jamaicans, not all I have to admit. But there is a kind of fire which burns in our bellies. A fire which would cause us rather die on our feet than live on our knees.
Maybe it is that west African Coromantee, blood which flows through our veins, that which heats up when we hear about incidents like the following.
Incidents which in most cases draws not even a bit of care much less anger from others.

Imagine someone harassing you to the point that you are forced to quit your job? Imagine that you have never bothered that person/s?
You see, it is hard for me to fathom because I was always of the opinion that no one, no man or woman, have a greater right to be on this planet than I do.
On that basis, I will not tread on your space but so help me God if you ever tread on my space.
After all, we all have just one life and what’s the point of living it if you cannot live it in peace?

At a press conference, Monday, Vermont’s chief law enforcement officer almost completed one of the greatest performances of whitesplaining in recent history as he announced that he wouldn’t file charges against a white nationalist who allegedly stalked, harassed and terrified one of the state’s only black lawmakers.
As Vermont Attorney General T.J. Donovan described the voluminous evidence, he pointed out that he didn’t have enough evidence. He explained how hate speech was a matter of free speech. He explained that the harassment against the black family was bad, but that it wasn’t a crime. All the while, the woman was the target of the incessant acts of hate stood beside him as he shucked and jived.

Then the racists showed up.
According to WNYT, On Monday, Vermont Attorney General T.J Donovan held a press conference at the Congregation Beth El synagogue in Bennington, Vt. to announce that, instead of filing charges, he would instead release a 10-page report on the racial harassment of former State Rep. Kiah Morris, the state’s only black woman state representative who resigned in September after allegedly being harangued by white supremacist Max Misch, who describes himself the man who “be representing dem white muhfuckaz of Bennington.”

Seven Days Vermont reports:

The press conference went off the rails when Bennington resident Max Misch entered the room as Morris answered a television reporter’s question about the AG’s probe. Misch had been subject to a yearlong protective order in 2016 prohibiting him from contacting Morris over a series of racist tweets, messages and online comments he aimed at her.

Misch wore a black long-sleeve shirt bearing the image of alt-right icon Pepe the Frog. Many in the room began shouting “No, no, no!” and “Out!” when he arrived.

“This is not safe,” one person shouted. “Why is this asshole allowed to come in here?” someone else in the crowd said.

“Because it’s America,” another attendee replied. “We have to listen to everyone, whether we like it or not. But we don’t have to put up with it.”

Also in attendance was Kevin Hoyt, a failed Republican candidate who has accused Morris and her husband of inciting others to paint him as a Nazi. Hoyt says he is a victim of reverse racism after his request for a stalking order of protection against Morris’ husband was rejected by a judge. The hunting expert and gun advocate has repeatedly insinuated that Morris and her husband were fabricating their claims to make Vermont look like a state that tolerates racism.

“I call bullshit on Ms. Morris!” yelled Hoyt. “As a political opponent who was accused of being a Nazi, I think we’re hearing one side of the story … I was called a Nazi, I was called a white supremacist. Obviously, racism exists in Vermont … I question to what degree, though.”

After winning a House seat in the state legislature, Morris gave up her re-election bid before resigning in September, citing her husband’s open-heart surgery combined with Hoyt and Misch’s continued online campaign of harassment. Citing tweets that told her to “Go back to Africa, it’s the only place you’ll ever be safe,” The Attorney general’s report listed forty-eight separate racial incidents where Morris had been threatened and attacked, including:

  • A message to Morris’ husband informing him that he should put his wife “in her place,” or the messenger would do it for him;
  • A tweet that read: “You will never silence me. Every time you attend a political rally at the Four Corners or another local venue and I’m aware of the event, I will troll the hell out of you and the other subversives there. Maybe I’ll bring a friend or three with me too;”
  • Someone paintballing Morris’ car and spray painting a swastika on a tree near Morris’ home;
  • Another tweet said, “Stop pushing ‘social justice’ on your nearly entirely White constituency in Bennington, VT. Go back to Chicago if you want to engage in SJW [Social Justice Warrior] bullshit. We will continue to fight against your efforts to make our town/state look more like your mongrel son;”
  • Multiple reports to police of strange men and suspicious vehicles in the cemetery behind Morris’ home;
  • A break-in at the Morris home where Morris’ husband’s neckties were stolen and found in the cemetery (Police did not fingerprint or swab the crime scene);
  • Morris’ child care provider reporting a man sitting in a car outside the home filming the Morris residence;

Donovan concluded that there was not enough evidence to charge Misch with any crimes, noting that there was a lack of evidence. “No Vermont court has specifically considered whether communications like those sent to Ms. Morris could be construed as ‘true threats,’” Donovan’s findings read, adding:

In this case, the online communications that were sent to Ms. Morris by Max Misch and others were clearly racist and extremely offensive However, the First Amendment does not make speech sanctionable merely because its content is objectionable. The question here is whether the messages, in context, were communicating a serious expression of an intent to harm Ms. Morris or her family. The fact that a number of messages were directed at her role as an elected official raises the issue of whether they were intended to express political opposition through the use of hyperbole and insult, as noted in the case law above. Therefore, there appears to be insufficient evidence to pursue criminal charges under Vermont law.

“Kiah Morris was a victim of racial harassment. Relatively few Vermonters have had any of these experiences, and very few have had these experiences in the context of vicious racial harassment,” Donovan said, according to the Washington Post. But, he added, “the Constitution does not permit us to prosecute racist speech because we find it offensive.”

Meanwhile, Morris stood in the face of her harassers and the attorney general, noting that law enforcement officers had shrugged off her claims.“For two years, we lived in my husband’s childhood home, feeling unsafe, never sleeping peacefully because we had to be vigilant,” said Morris, “We did everything we were told to do. We reported as we should, held nothing back and trusted in a system that was insufficient and inept at addressing and repairing the harm done.” So there you have it. It was just political expression and free speech, which is aptly expressed in the Vermont state motto:

Freedom and Unity.

#StabbyGabby Spits, Slaps, Screams N-Word And Pulls Knife On Black Family Over Parking Space

A woman was caught on video screaming the N-word and pulling a knife on a black family in an Oregon parking lot, perfectly encapsulating white America’s shenanigans in 2018.

On December 24, 20-year-old Emora Roberson captured rare footage of what is either an irate racist albino ferret or a quickly decomposing white woman in the early stages of turning into a White Walker. Roberson was in a car with her 15-month-old daughter, her boyfriend and an aunt doing some last-minute Christmas shopping when the stage 1 zombie pulled up next to the family at a McMinnville, Ore. Dominos pizza.

Clad in a camouflage jacket, track pants with two stripes, wraparound sunglasses and dingy white shoes only worn by nursing assistants, church ushers and senior citizens who exercise by walking laps at the mall—the official uniform of people who want to make America great—the soggy saltine woman pulled up next to the family in a handicapped parking spot, obviously qualified by a tooth count that appeared to be in the low-to-mid teens.

According to Roberson, the enraged woman slapped and spit on her boyfriend, Keysuan Goodyear. Goodyear grew angry and warned the woman about her behavior and language.

The woman responded by whipping out a knife.

That’s when Roberson said she began filming the incident on her phone.

“This bitch is really trying to stab him,” Roberson comments as the enraged meerkat holds a knife in clear view. “It’s called self-defense, you stupid nigger butch” Tammy Two-Teeth responds before slamming the car door on Roberson.

Roberson’s boyfriend tells Debbie No-Dentist, who looks like a french fry at the bottom of the McDonalds bag, to stay away but his girlfriend warns him that they are in McMinnville. I don’t know where McMinnville is, exactly. But from the name alone, it sounds like a place where the sheriff wears a cowboy hat and black people know to “stay in their place.”

“It’s not worth it today,” she warns her boyfriend. “We’re in a white-ass town.”“We eventually drove off. We still had Christmas shopping to do,” Roberson told Oregon Live. “My daughter woke up and was crying her head off.” Roberson said she contacted the local police department and alerted them that either Kellyanne Conway had left the Trump administration for a career on the lucrative meth-smoking circuit, or there was a racist woman on the loose who had possibly bankrupted the Tooth Fairy.

On Saturday, KPTV announced that they arrested 39-year-old Amber Rocco for the incident and charged her with intimidation, unlawful use of a weapon, harassment and menacing. Her bail was set at $55,000 but I’m not sure if they have the right person. There’s no way the woman in that video is 39 unless they are counting in possum years.

I really hope they catch the real offender before she actually stabs a victim or bites someone and turns more people into Zorro-zombies. I don’t want to tell the cops how to do their job but I’m betting they could catch the actual suspect tomorrow if they just staked out convenience stores that sell Pall Mall cigarettes.I also don’t like to stereotype but I’m betting the woman’s in the video’s name is not Amber. Most Ambers have twenty-plus teeth. The woman in the video looks like a Gretchen. If not, I’m betting on a hybrid name like SueEllen or MaryLou. But probably Gretchen.

Free Amber Rocco.

She has a dental appointment tomorrow… I hope.


Many Police Shootings Can Be Avoided But Do They Want To?

Hate, bigotry, and racism should have no place in any community, state or nation.
Yet, despite all of the work and sacrifice which has been put into the fight to eradicate the ignorant scourge of racism from our midst, hate, bigotry, and racism persist as it did back in the ’40s and ’50s.
The fact that people are a little less blatant with racist attitudes toward others they dislike may only be attributable to the cost attached to acts of racism rather than any change of heart individual bigots may have had.  

Stokely Carmichael

The problem of racism and Police abuse in America was the number one issue while stalwarts like Stokely Carmichael, Dr. King, and others lived. 
Today the issue of racist Police abuse of people of color continue to be the number one issue plaguing the country.
Years after the Federal Bureau Of Investigations warned that white supremacists were infiltrating police departments nothing substantive has been done to root them out.
In fact Department heads, Prosecutors and Judges have worked assiduously to ensure that racist murderers parading in police uniforms are not held accountable for their crimes against people of color.
Cops hardly make attempts to de-escalate volatile situations anymore, they escalate minor situations in order to justify the use of force.
Casual situations which ought to be handled with kindness and professionalism are escalated by the cops themselves, even when they were initially called to help.

John Crawford murdered by police in a Walmart

“A federal court found that members of a Los Angeles sheriff’s department formed a neo-Nazi gang and habitually terrorized the black community. Later, the Chicago police department fired Jon Burge, a detective with reputed ties to the Ku Klux Klan, after discovering he tortured over 100 black male suspects. Thereafter, the mayor of Cleveland discovered that many of the city police locker rooms were infested with ‘White Power’ graffiti. Years later, a Texas sheriff department discovered that two of its deputies were recruited for the Klan.”

Alton Sterling subdued by two Baton Rogue cops just before they decided to kill him ….

(1) “[T]he term ‘ghost skins’ has gained currency among white supremacists to describe those who avoid overt displays of their beliefs to blend into society and covertly advance white supremacist causes,” the FBI report states.
(2) In 2014 New Orleans Times-Picayune columnist Jarvis DeBerry reminded readers of Michael Elsbury, a white Baton Rogue police officer who resigned after “he was linked” to racist text messages.
(3) “I wish someone would pull a Ferguson on them and take them out,” Elsbury reportedly wrote in one message, referring to the 2014 police shooting of Michael Brown. “I hate looking at those African monkeys at work … I enjoy arresting those thugs with their saggy pants.”
(4) According to Esquire.com) Critical to the rise of these groups within law enforcement was the severe backlash by mainstream conservatives to a 2009 report by the Department of Homeland Security that revealed that white-supremacist groups and right-wing domestic terrorist organizations had been recruiting heavily among a number of groups in the country, especially among returning military veterans. Mainstream conservatives went completely bananas and, to her discredit, then-DHS Secretary Donna Shalala killed the report, apologized to various veterans groups, and disbanded the unit within her department that had done the research.

(5)Critics fear that the backlash following the 2009 DHS report hindered further action against the growing white supremacist threat and that it was largely ignored because the issue was so politically controversial. “I believe that because that report was so denounced by conservatives, it sort of closed the door on whatever the FBI may have been considering doing with respect to combating infiltration of law enforcement by white supremacists,” said Samuel Jones, a professor of law at the John Marshall Law School in Chicago who has written about white power ideology in law enforcement. “Because after the 2006 FBI report, we simply cannot find anything by local law enforcement or the federal government that addresses this issue.”

(6) The website (Occupy Democrats) argue that White supremacists are infiltrating the police departments across the country according to a report by the FBI. The report is alarming in the Trump era, as white nationalists across the country are feeling emboldened and only build on a long history of domestic terrorist groups joining law enforcement.
A classified FBI Counter-Terrorism Policy Guide from April 2015 was obtained by The Intercept and revealed that “domestic terrorism investigations focused on militia extremists, white supremacist extremists and sovereign citizen extremists often have identified active links to law enforcement officers.”
Shockingly, to those studying law enforcement in the US this is nothing new; however, the FBI is doing little to publicly address this growing threat. Many police departments around the nation have a history of racism in their ranks, and with no national standard among the nearly 2,000 law enforcement agencies, white nationalists have little trouble infiltrating the ranks and spreading their influence.

Summing up these realities with incredible precision  Angelia Williams Graves, a Virginia councilwoman,at a NAACP luncheon said the following.
These white supremacists have “taken off their white hats and white-sheeted robes and put on police uniforms. Some of them have put on shirts and ties as policymakers and some of them have put on robes as judges.” 
“I know I could never change the condition from the outside. I had to go for the inside,” Col. K.L. Williams, the Black chief of police in Kinloch, Mo., told CNN. “If you think that racism and white supremacy is not involved in police departments, you better check yourself. Because the KKK has been involved with law enforcement from when it just about started,” he continued.

Philando Castile kiled by a cop who pulled him over for an alleged broken tail-light….

Time after time white mass killers are arrested, not killed, even when armed.
White South Carolina mass murderer Dylan Roof was even treated to fast food after being arrested without being shot, courtesy of the local PB.
Conversely, black men and women risk instant death at the hands of police on every traffic stop, traffic stops which are generally done on illegally cooked-up convoluted reasons.
Black men risk getting murdered while black women risked getting pulled from their automobiles and brutalized by police whose job it is to protect them.

The instances are well documented, guilty white mass killers are treated exponentially better than respectable black victims of crime.
Which brings us to the question of why?
We can waste time talking about all manner of peripheral stuff like what the mainstream media does to deceive the public on this issue.
Or we can accept the fact that many cops in the public sphere are white Nationalists with a badge and gun.
Black citizens could fight the clan toe-to-toe. How do you fight back against someone who comes under the cover of the law?

Florida’s sheriff’s deputy wearing Qanon patch greets Mike Pence>

Whether the nation wants to face what’s happening or continue to ignore it does not change the facts.
Black and brown people are being murdered by white cops who are active white supremacists bent on enforcing their own agendas.
In the meantime, all-white grand juries continue to grant them license to murder by failing to indict them.
On the rare occasions that these murderers are even indicted for their crimes, the chances of convictions are almost nil, whether they receive a jury or bench trial the end results are the same.
Murderers who kill while wearing a police officers uniform are guaranteed that there will be no consequences for their actions.
What better place to be if you are a white supremacist who hates and wants to kill black people?

Some Blacks Still Mentally Shackled To The Plantation

Mike Espy

The final elections of the 2018 season will be held today November 27th, in the southern state of Mississippi. The elections are a runoff between Republican appointed Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith a white woman who was appointed to fill the Senate seat vacated by the retiring Republican Senator Thad Cochran, and African-American Mike Espy, former Congressman and  Clinton agriculture secretary.

Neither candidate received more than 50% of the votes in the November 6th elections, by state law this means that there has to be a runoff election to decide a winner. Today is that day.
Hyde-Smith’s parents reportedly sent her to a whites-only school after school segregation was outlawed. This can hardly be laid at the feet of Cindy Hyde-Smith, but she continued the trend by sending her own daughter to one such school to avoid sending her to a school in which she would mix with black students.

The campaign is drawing a lot of attention because of comments Cindy Hyde-Smith made on the campaign trail.
Normally a Republican candidate in ruby red Mississippi would simply swat away a democratic opponent, not so much this time.
Donald Trump’s two campaign events for Hyde-Smith on November 26th seem to indicate a sense of nervousness on the part of Republicans.
The Doug Jones win in neighboring Alabama may be uppermost in the minds of Hyde-Smith’s supporters as well.

Cindy Hyde-Smith

At issue are comments made by Hyde-Smith, Referring to a local rancher, in which she joked that, “if he invited me to a public hanging, I’d be on the front row.” 
At another event, the senator suggested to a group of young voters that voter suppression would be “a great idea.”
There’s a lot of liberal folks in those other schools who maybe we don’t want to vote,” she said. “Maybe we want to make it just a little more difficult. And I think that’s a great idea.
Cindy Hyde-Smith has not really made a full-throated apology for her statements and is seemingly invested in running out the election clock rather than apologize for her insensitive and racist statements.
Attaching herself fully to Donald Trump’s coat-tails Cindy Hyde-Smith seem to think that is all she needs to win in Mississippi.
She may very well be right in thinking that.

Mississippi not only has the dubious distinction of being one of the most racist states in the union it had the highest number of lynchings of African-Americans during the Jim Crow era.
That Hyde-Smith thinks that sitting front and center at a public lynching tells a great deal about her humanity. 
If elected to the Senate it will speak even more clearly about those who voted for her.
That Mississippi kind of brain rot has certainly ketp that state one of the most impoverished and the most dependent on federal aid.
Which brings me to the point of this article.

Not surprising is the response of some Republicans in the state when asked about Cindy Hyde-Smith’s comments.
No…….I’m not talking about whites, they are what they are, I’m referring to some blacks in the state, who still support the Republican party.
I just choose to look at it as a possible mistake and chalk it up to that,” said John Mosley Jr., an African-American Republican who ran for mayor of Moss Point, Mississippi, in 2017. “And I haven’t given it much thought afterward.”
“I’m a Republican. I support Cindy Hyde-Smith,” said Charles Evers. “She didn’t say anything about black folks, she didn’t say anything about white folks. She just said ‘If there’s a hanging I’ll be in the front row’ or something like that. She didn’t mean nothing like that. She was just saying something. I don’t give a damn what other people think.

Makes me wonder whether these two are afraid of being strung up on the nearest tree
Please tell us how you really feel, we will not tell anyone.
According to (postbulletin.com) Evers is the 96-year-old brother of the late Medgar Evers, an NAACP leader who was assassinated on June 12, 1963, outside his home in Jackson by Byron De La Beckwith, a member of the White Citizens Council. Two trials in 1964 resulted in hung juries. Beckwith was convicted of Evers’ murder on Feb. 5, 1994.

My initial instinct when I saw these comments and others was rage, just unadulterated rage at what I thought was abject stupidity of the individuals involved.
And maybe there is still some of that in these men and others like them, but there is always another perspective.
I have been writing on this subject for some time now, [the idea of black and latino Republicanism], both of which seem to operate in an Orwellian universe, divorced from the reality of their individual existence.

I am mindful that for many in the deep south the Democratic party of George Wallace and Bull O’Connor still leaves a bitter taste in the mouths of people still alive. The likes of Charles Evers who lost his brother to an assassin’s bullets.
I can only imagine how they would find it hard to support the Democratic party which was the party of segregationists.
Juxtapose that with the initial loyalty African-Americans felt for the Republican party because Lincoln the Republican president signed the Emancipation declaration and the obstinacy becomes more understandable, even though intolerable and no less infuriating.

Donald Trump

The missing nexus for African-Americans who still cling to the Republican party, is their inability to think outside the way they were programmed to think as [subhuman subjects] of a system which projected itself as superior to them.
Sure Lincoln a Republican President was forced to free the slaves, but he did so only because it suited his interest of maintaining the Union.
Lincoln had no burning desire to be rid of slavery, it was a convenience for him and his emancipation declaration was acutely tailored to fit those ends.
On the contrary, the Democratic President Lyndon Johnson presided over the signing of both the [Civil and Voting Rights Acts] which changed the way blacks are treated in this country.
The signing of both these pieces of legislation resulted in the mass exodus of whites from the Democratic Party to the Republican party.
Today the most loyal base of the Democratic party is African-Americans.

The Republican party is fully conversant of those facts. Subsequently, the party isn’t trying to recruit blacks into the party.
If you think about it, why would the Republican party which has become far too white and far too racist for even former white Republicans, want to attract blacks?
Considering that Whites left the Democratic party over that party’s support for blacks?
It is important never to forget that whites left the Democratic party for no other reason than that they believed another group of people had no right to the basic rights and dignity they enjoyed as a matter of course!
Nevertheless, insofar as the small percentage of blacks which still support the Republican party is concerned, the party will not chase them out. 
At least not yet……who knows what this far-right party of Stephen Miller, Cindy Hyde-Smith and Donald Trump will do ultimately?
The party still has a demographic problem. As it struggles with perceptions and a shrinking white base, it still needs a couple of token black stooges to fend off some of the attacks on its racism.
Sorry Mia Love, Michael Steele, et al. 
Not many expect a Mike Espy win tonight in Mississippi, certainly, not this writer but stranger things have happened.
I fully expect white Mississippians will act like white Mississippians but the negroes though………

How The Tranquil Drug Of Gradualism Has Lulled African-Americans To Sleep

In the struggle to make America a better place for all of its citizens, there will have to be a reckoning among Black people along certain distinct lines.
(1) They cannot count on anyone else’s efforts in this existential fight.
(2) White women are equally as complicit in white supremacy as their male counterparts.
(3) Expecting a change of heart from the descendants of those who enslaved, murdered, raped and sodomized their fore-parents is fool’s gold.
The expectation that white women will fight for civil and gender rights because they too were victims of oppression ignores the fact that they have long done the math and have decided the benefits of white privilege far outweighs any benefits they would derive from gender equality. 
In fact, in 2018 white women have solidified themselves as the number one anti-black antagonists in the age of Trump.

The Rosewood Massacre, 1923
The burning of Rosewood

In 1923 Fanny Taylor’s lies caused the massacre of hundreds, if not thousands of black residents of Rosewood Florida.
 The massacre was instigated by the rumor that a white woman, Fanny Taylor, had been sexually assaulted by a black man in her home in a nearby community. 

In 1955 Emmet Till a 14-year old black child from Chicago was visiting relatives in Mississippi when he was murdered for allegedly [flirting] with a [white woman].
His killers, —the white woman’s husband and her brother—made Emmett carry a 75-pound cotton-gin fan to the bank of the Tallahatchie River and ordered him to take off his clothes. The two men then beat him nearly to death, gouged out his eye, shot him in the head and then threw his body, tied to the cotton-gin fan with barbed wire, into the river.

Emmet Till’s mother, Mamie Till Mobley’s, though ravaged by the trauma and grief of the inhuman savagery which went into the slaughter of her son decided to hold an open casket funeral on September 3, 1955.
She urged the world to look at her son’s beaten, swollen body. The body, was so disfigured that he was only identifiable by the initials on a ring on his finger, was viewed by thousands of people and photographed and published in newspapers and magazines.
Emmett Till’s old casket may be viewed at the Civil Rights exhibition at the African American History Museum, in Washington DC.

Emmett Till

In July of 1995 South Carolina native, Susan Smith decided to kill her two children. She drove her car into a lake and drowned the two children then told police they were kidnapped by a black man.
September 2018, after only three months on the job, Sherry Hall a recently hired Jackson Georgia cop shoots herself and told her bosses she was shot by …… you guessed it, a black man.
With blood in their eyes, they embarked on a two-week chase for the imaginary black man until her story fell apart and she was arrested.

The undeniable truth in the innumerable instances in which white women have used black men as foils to (a) cover up lies or (b) elicit rage from their male contemporaries, has demonstrated the devious calculation in the way they have opted to cash in on whiteness in America. 

This is America’s shame, it must be confronted and exorcised

Once there is a fundamental understanding that the three concepts outlined in paragraph one above are institutionalized impediments to change, the arduous task of self-determination, self-autonomy, and self-governance begins in a country within a country.
The idea of a gradual change has long been rubbished, even though many, even within the Black community will argue that there has been marked change in their lifetime.
The idea that a Black man was twice elected and Blacks occupying high places of power remain indelible markers of the progress of which they speak.

Dr King

The undeniable truth, however, is that despite those gains the systematic stain of racism is still deeply etched in the body politic, that if Blacks continue to accept what Dr. King once called “the tranquil drug of gradualism“, black Americans will be no further along three hundred years from today.
There is a sense of moral degeneration which permeates certain quarters which hold power in America.
This makes it almost impossible to dislodge the corrosive and cancerous consequences of racism which is literally destroying the country from within. 

Steve King  (R) Iowa

A sitting Congressman [Steve King] of Iowa who openly supports white supremacist causes across the Globe was re-elected in his district.
An appointed Mississippi US Senator, Cindy Hyde-Smith, R-Miss so enthused  with a supporter, remarked to a group of supporters,” 
“If he invited me to a public hanging, I’d be on the front row”
On the 27th Of November 2018, Cindy Hyde-Smith the Republican will square off in Mississippi against Democrat  Mike Espy who just happen to be black.

Cindy Hyde Smith

If you are reading this  and you do not know or understand the loaded back-story to Hyde-Smith’s statement, this article will be insufficient to educate you on lynchings, and the part the state of Mississippi played in that sordid part of America’s inglorious racial history.
But Hyde-Smith was not done, she publicly opined about how great it would be to prevent young people at liberal colleges from voting.
It’s needles to wonder or guess what the students of those liberal colleges look like.

It is as systemic as Florida’s new Governor-Elect at the start of his campaign telling voters not to “monkey up” the Gubernatorial race by voting for Andrew Gillum his Democratic opponent who just happened to be Black.
The people of the state of Florida did not find any of these incidents disqualifying. 
Come November 27th, Cindy Hyde-Smith will almost certainly beat Mike Espy for the Senate seat in Mississippi.
Like Ron Desantis, like Steve King, Cindy Hyde-Smith will take her place in the Government of the United States.
They will vote on issues which affect the daily lives of tens of millions of people who do not look like them and for whom they have scant, if any regard.

Chris Collins

But if you thought that these are the only ones you are deeply mistaken, In Western New York 27th Congressional District, Republican Chris Collins was re-elected despite being under Federal indictment for felony charges around insider trading.
In California’s 50th District, Republican Duncan Hunter was re-elected despite facing a federal indictment for allegedly misusing campaign funds.
You may argue that in the case of Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins nothing about their story is racial.
If you do that, you are missing the greater point about the deeper rot which permeates the politics.  So much so that even these egregious acts which are antithetical to good governance are ignored.
What chance then does deep-rooted white racism have of being uprooted by these miscreants?


Imagine breaking into a man’s house, raping his wife, stealing everything he owns, beating and humiliating him, selling his children that you haven’t killed, then forcing him to work for free.
Are you able to make that mental journey?
If so, then picture this, after he has done everything you have demanded of him, you are angry at him for fighting for his freedom.
Even if you were to give him everything you own it would not begin to compensate for the hundreds of years of dehumanizing and degrading rape, sodomy, murder, and the untold cruelty and barbarism you have subjected him to.
Now you are mad that he dares stand up to demand his right to human dignity.
You are mad because he dares to revisit his past in order to understand his present and to chart a course for his future.
How dare you?

If I said it once I’ll say it a thousand times.
The fight for Black autonomy and black respect will not be won by using other people’s soldiers.
Iowa’s Congressman  Steve King said, “You cannot rebuild your civilization with somebody else’s babies. You’ve got to keep your birth rate up, and that you need to teach your children your values.”
King was making the case for white supremacy and white Anglo Saxon dominance.
I’m a champion for Western civilization,” said Steve King, 
If you go down the road a few generations, or maybe centuries, with the inter-marriage, I’d like to see an America that is just so homogenous that we look a lot the same.” 

If African-Americans are going to survive against these imbeciles they better wise up to the fact that they will have to fight like hell on every front, in a fight which will require a full arsenal of wit and cunning.
This is an existential fight against annihilation and they have no compunction against removing us from the equation as if we never existed.

Wisconsin Students Throw Up Sig Heil In Prom Photo

Here are your future Judges, Police Officers and other public officials, here are your private sector officials.
Welcome to America 2018.

In the photo, nearly all of the 63 boys appear to make the Sieg Heil salute before their junior prom in the spring at Baraboo High School. Lori Mueller, of the Baraboo School District, said Monday via Twitter that the district will pursue all available options, including legal action, in response to the photo. The school district and local authorities continue to investigate, speaking with the students and families involved to determine how and why this was taken. Baraboo is a town of about 12,000 residents that is about 115 miles (185 kilometers) northwest of Milwaukee. Mueller says the photo doesn’t reflect the district’s values and that administrators will pursue appropriate action. Mueller said the photo appears to have been taken last spring and wasn’t on school grounds. The Auschwitz Memorial in Poland released a statement Monday emphasizing that the photo is one of the reasons children must continue to be taught about the brutality of what the Nazis did. http://cutenailsdesigns.net/2018/11/13/wisconsin-students-throw-up-sig-heil-in-prom-photo.html

This is Mississippi Republican US Senator  Cindy Hyde-Smith, making a flip reference to a “public hanging” is incensing voters in a special election runoff, drawing attention to the state’s history of lynching and boosting Democrats’ hope of pulling off a stunner in the Deep South. Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith is facing former congressman and former U.S. agriculture secretary Mike Espy, a black Democrat, in a runoff Nov. 27. She was captured on video praising a supporter by declaring, “If he invited me to a public hanging, I’d be on the front row.” After the video was made public Sunday, Hyde-Smith said her remark Nov. 2 at a campaign event in Tupelo was “an exaggerated expression of regard” for a friend who invited her to speak. “Any attempt to turn this into a negative connotation is ridiculous,” she said.spy on Monday called the remark “disappointing and harmful.” “It reinforces stereotypes that we’ve been trying to get away from for decades, stereotypes that continue to harm our economy and cost us jobs,” he told MSNBC’s, Chris Matthews. At a news conference Monday with Republican Gov. Phil Bryant by her side, a stone-faced Hyde-Smith refused to answer questions about the hanging remark. “I put out a statement yesterday, and that’s all I’m going to say about it,” she said. https://www.brownsvilleherald.com/news/elections/mississippi-us-senator-won-t-discuss-public-hanging-remark/article_d1fb0e80-230f-56a2-8f09-8273d2e71a67.html 

Being Black And Republican Is Not A Thing

Black Republicanism is a real aphorism, however, in some ways, it seems as logical as walking in an East-Westerly direction, such is the inherent contradiction of it.

The struggle to understand the idea of Blacks aligning themselves with the Republican party or supporting the party’s agenda is a real phenomenon. Nevertheless, it also begs the question why have some Blacks in other parts of the world still see the Republican party as an entity worthy of their support?

If someone was to ask me what is it that most black people who support the Republican party have missed?……… I would readily respond that they missed the fact that the two political parties switched roles in the early 1960’s.
Conversely, If I was asked what is it which causes any black person to still support the Republican Party, I would readily opine that the emancipation proclamation signed by the then Republican president Abraham Lincoln still have some starry-eyed about the party to this very day.

The Emancipation Proclamation of  January 1, 1863, may be looked at in its most simplistic form a-la the undeniable fact that  3.5 million enslaved African Americans in the designated areas of the South were moved from slave to a sense of pseudo-freedom.
Or we can scratch the surface and look at some hard facts as it relates to the mythology surrounding Lincoln’s valiancy in signing the Emancipation Proclamation. After three(3) years of a bloody civil war, Lincoln desperately needed bodies to fight his war.

The Emancipation Proclamation was limited in many ways. It applied only to states that had seceded from the United States, leaving slavery untouched in the loyal border states. It also expressly exempted parts of the Confederacy (the Southern secessionist states) that had already come under Northern control. Most important, the freedom it promised depended upon Union (United States) military victory. Source[archives.gov]

Although the Emancipation Proclamation did not end slavery in the nation, it captured the hearts and imagination of millions of Americans and fundamentally transformed the character of the war. After January 1, 1863, every advance of federal troops expanded the domain of freedom. Moreover, the Proclamation announced the acceptance of black men into the Union Army and Navy, enabling the liberated to become liberators. By the end of the war, almost 200,000 black soldiers and sailors had fought for the Union and freedom.

According to [ Dr. Terry L. Jones of thepineywoods.com] Lincoln became known as “The Great Emancipator,” but in reality, the Emancipation Proclamation’s promise of freedom intentionally excluded some 800,000 slaves-many of whom lived in Louisiana as well.
Some historians have argued that Lincoln hated Slavery, however, in a public letter to the New York Tribune published just a month before he issued the Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, Lincoln declared “My paramount objective in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves, I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that.”
Yea, the Great Emancipator had no deep burning desire in his gut to eradicate the scourge of slavery, for him whatever he would do about it had to justify his own end.

Emancipation, however, was a complicated matter because most Northerners were fighting to restore the Union and had no interest in freeing the slaves. To win the war, it was absolutely vital that Lincoln keep the slave-holding Border States on his side, not to mention the thousands of slave-owning Southerners who had opposed secession and were providing important support to the Union.

Lincoln knew that if he attempted to free all of the slaves, loyal slave owners in Missouri, Kentucky, Maryland, and Delaware, and in the Union controlled areas of the Confederacy, might well join the Rebels to protect their valuable slave property. To prevent that from happening, the Emancipation Proclamation carefully avoided freeing the slaves held by most Unionists.

Lincoln realized that slavery helped the Confederacy wage its war for independence. Slaves performed most of the labor in the South constructing Rebel military fortifications, working in munitions factories, and harvesting the food that fed the Confederate army. Every slave who worked in such a manner freed up a white man to serve in the army. Source [ Dr. Terry L. Jones]

Probably, the most important issue of the conundrum Lincoln faced was the need to adopting emancipation as an official war goal also would make it less likely that the anti-slavery Europeans would intervene on the side of the Confederacy.
Lincoln was singularly focused on maintaining the Union. If the French entered the war to protect their territory of Louisana America as we know it today may well have been only a dream.

The calculated nature of the proclamation was not lost on people at the time, according to Professor Jones, one British newspaper noted, “The principle asserted is not that a human being cannot justly own another, but that he cannot own him unless he is loyal to the United States.”

Even so, the {emancipation proclamation} meant that the enslaved African-America population toiling endlessly in degrading servitude could have something to look forward to, a starting point on what would become a seemingly endless sojourn to self-autonomy and citizenship.
Little did they know that even though the emancipation proclamation would to some degree, remove the literal chains from their ankles,  dark forces were already hard at work creating an equally brutish system known as [Jim Crow], which all but made the newly liberated blacks slaves again to the very masters from whom they were just freed.

Like two travelers crossing paths in the dark the Republican party which for what its worth, was the party of emancipation became the political party to which white men ran after  President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the historic Civil Rights Act in a nationally televised ceremony at the White House.
The Democratic Party was now the party which looked out for the rights of blacks and whites were pissing mad.
For the average white man, the negro had no right they should respect.

President Lyndon Johnson has been rumored to have said  “We have lost the South for a generation,” Johnson told an aide after he signed the 1964 Civil Rights Act. 
Dr. Steven J. Allen of  capitalresearch.org pushes back against the assertion that Johnson ever made those comments.
Allen’s arguments are rooted in the concept that if LBJ had made those comments, he would have been wrong. The Goldwater surge in the South,, he argues faded quickly. With a handful of exceptions, Republican gains in the region in 1964 vanished by 1966. Decades passed with Democrats still in firm control of the South.  
In seeking to label those with whom he disagrees, like the Reverend Al Sharpton whom he tarnishes pejoratively a ‘racist preacher“, Allen forgot that President Johnson could have made the statement and be wrong, could have made the statement and be right eventually, and that there was no mutual exclusivity between competing events.

Dr. Steven J. Allen,  in seeking to establish that the statement attributed to President Johnson was a myth, inherently failed to speak to the irrefutable fact that for decades after the signing of the civil rights act, to present day, the entire south has been a bastion of Republicanism.
An almost impenetrable garrison which has hardly seen a Democrat carry a southern state, outside Florida except for Carter who won his home state of Georgia, Bill Clinton who carried Arkansas and Al Gore winning Tennessee.

The laughable truth being ignored by Allen is that, whether Johnson said “we lost the south for generations” or not is manifestly unimportant.
The Democratic party eventually lost the south and parts beyond eventually. As a consolidation of purpose developed to re-litigate, if not retool for a new war under the mantra the south will rise again.

It probably makes more sense to lay out the gross atrocities which the Republican Party has visited on people of color since the party took over the persecution of black people from the southern Democrats.
 Voter suppression. Police brutality. Blatant Racism and the list goes on and on. However, no Republican initiative has been more detrimental to African-Americans than the Nixon so-called war on drugs, continued through Ford, Reagan and Bush.
In the period since the war on drugs was launched the American prison population has skyrocketed to over two million. Many of those caught in the dragnet have been low-level nonviolent drug offenders who just happen to be black.

Even as Republican policies have packed the prisons with nonviolent drug offenders, and resulted in the deportation of countless others, state legislatures controlled by Republicans have passed laws which makes it impossible for offenders who have done time in prison to vote after they have paid their debt to society.
This has rendered a huge segment of the male black population not just felons but made them unemployable and without the ability to chose their leaders.
In many cases, they are denied basic benefits such as food stamps for the rest of their lives, that includes pregnant women, people in drug treatment or recovery and people suffering from HIV/AIDS simply because they were once caught with drugs.
These racist draconian policies ensure recidivism of blacks and ensure that prisons remain filled with black bodies.

Speaking to this in her best selling book [the new Jim Crow] Lawyer, Activist and Author Michelle Alexander said;” If shackling former prisoners with a lifetime of debt and authorizing discrimination against them in employment, housing, education, and public benefits is not enough to send the message that they are not wanted and not even considered full citizens, then stripping voting rights from those labeled criminals surely gets the point across.

I will probably not change a single mind of the black people who vote Republican.
That was not my intention, what I set out to do in this piece was to establish a factual foundation which puts to rest the frivolous arguments around black people’s support for a political party which literally hates them and has systematically worked toward their destruction.
Black Republicanism is an oxymoron which only makes sense if you are traveling in an east-westerly direction.

Why Young Men Of Color Are Joining White-Supremacist Groups

Patriot Prayer’s leader is half-Japanese. Black and brown faces march with the Proud Boys. Is the future of hate multicultural?

PORTLAND, Oregon—Outfitted in a flak jacket and fighting gloves, Enrique Tarrio was one of dozens of black, Latino, and Asian men who marched alongside white supremacists in Portland on Aug. 4.

Tarrio, who identifies as Afro-Cuban, is president of the Miami chapter of the Proud Boys, who call themselves “Western chauvinists,” and “regularly spout white-nationalist memes and maintain affiliations with known extremists,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Last month, prior to the Patriot Prayer rally he attended in Portland, Tarrio was pictured with other far-right activists making a hand sign that started as a hoax but has become an in-joke. Last year, Tarrio said traveled to Charlottesville, Virginia, for the Unite the Rightrally that ended with a neo-Nazi allegedly killing an anti-fascist protester. (The Proud Boys said any members who went to the event were kicked out.)

Patriot Prayer + Proud Boys in Vancouver night b4 Aug 4 Portland rally many fear will end in violence. Tusitala “Tiny” Toese and others make an apparent “White Power” hand gesture. T-shirts read, “Pinochet Did Nothing Wrong.”

“A lot of these young guys, especially from the software world, who are being sucked into white nationalism, start out being worked up about Ayn Rand in high school.”— David Neiwert

Tarrio and other people of color at the far-right rallies claim institutional racism no longer exists in America. In their view, blacks are to blame for any lingering inequality because they are dependent on welfare, lack strong leadership, and believe Democrats who tell them “You’re always going to be broke. You’re not going to make it in society because of institutional racism,” as one mixed-race man put it.

If racism doesn’t exist, I ask Tarrio, how would he explain the disproportionate killing of young black men by police? “Hip-hop culture,” he says. It “glorifies that lifestyle… of selling drugs, shooting up.” Because of that, “Obviously you’re going to have higher crime rates. Obviously you’re going to have more police presence and more confrontations.” (Police kill black males aged 15 to 34 at nine times the rate of the general population.)

Elysa Sanchez, who is black and Puerto Rican, attended the “Liberty or Death Rally Against Left-Wing Violence” in Seattle on Aug. 18, joining about 20 militiamen open-carrying handguns and semi-automatic rifles.

Sanchez says, “If black people are committing more murders, more robberies, more thefts, more violent crime, that’s why you would see more black men having encounters with the police.”

Also in Seattle, Franky Price, who said he is  “black and white,”wore a T-shirt reading, “It’s okay to be white.” Read more here: https://www.thedailybeast.com/why-young-men-of-color-are-joining-white-supremacist-groups

The Incredible Ability Of American Cops To Arrest Violent White Murderers Without Hurting Them

Gregory Alan Bush reportedly has a violent past

It took them a while to do it and one has to wonder why? Even, when the evidence is glaring, there are hesitations to treat attacks on Black Americans as hate crimes?
That “it“, is recognizing that the brazen murder of two elderly black people in a Kentucky supermarket was a hate crime.
As the Nation grieves the deadliest attack on Jews in America’s history,  a case in which a right-wing hate monger massacred people solely on the basis of their faith, the murder of two innocent African-Americans in a Kentucky Kroger gets shoved to the side.

‘Whites Don’t Shoot Whites,’ Said Alleged Kroger Shooter  Gregory Alan Bush when confronted by an armed white man. The man did not shoot at him and so he hustled away before being taken alive by police.
You ever noticed how literally all of these murderous losers always have three names, think about it?  

Now the evidence was always there that this was a racially motivated shooting, he killed two black people and no one else. He tried entering an African-American church before opting for the Kroger supermarket. And then he told a white man who might have nailed his sorry ass, that “whites do not kill whites.” Obviously, his theory had some resonance with his white contemporary as well as with the police, he was not killed by that man and he was certainly taken alive by the police.

Bush reportedly has a black ex-wife who said in court records that he called her a “nigger bitch.” [Lie with Dogs you rise with flees](sorry Bud).
The larger takeaway which generally gets lost in the shuffle is the skillset of police departments across the country.
They have the incredible ability to take the most despicable white murderers into custody without harming them.
I’m actually surprised they did not take him to Burger King and got him a supersized whopper with extra fries and a large Frosty.

Yet two cowards wearing police uniforms in the state of Florida couldn’t restrain a 14-year-old black girl without pummelling her kidneys in order to arrest her for the very serious crime of talking back at police.
These are the Gestapo tactics playing out across the country, yet violent white right-wing extremist kill who they hate and are almost always taken into custody alive.

As for African-American men whose only crimes is that they are occupying their black skins, it is quite common to receive multiple gunshots to the back for simply existing.
In a very brief moment of time since Donald Trump has escalated his war of words on the media and has declared publicly that he is a white Nationalist much has happened.
Here are a few of the events which have occurred.
