Much appreciation to Rhonda Lee for not compromising her true heritage for white corporate America; especially since we live in a society where you are social and financially rewarded as a black woman to minimize your African appearance. Just think about it, would Beyonce and Nikki Minaj be as successful as they are in white America’s eyes if they were on TV with their natural hair? The truth is, they want us insecure about who we are because if we hate ourselves, then how could we ever unite and overcome the inequalities established by white America.
I look at this case and see the same type of unfair sentencing handed down on black boys and men today. We can’t not allow for George Stinney execution to be forgotten and ignored. I know George Stinney can’t be brought back, but as a citizen of a nation that claims equality for all doesn’t he deserve for his name to be cleared since there was nothing about this trail and convection that represented fair and equal rights. George Stinney should not be looked back at as a fourteen year old convicted murderer but instead a fourteen year old murder victim.
TRUE SHIT. ANYBODY WOULD HAVE PRESSED THE GAS IF THEY STARTED SHOOTING AT THEM FIRST.
THIS SHIT HAPPENS SO OFTEN THAT IT GIVES THE IMPRESSION THAT BEING A YOUNG BLACK MAN IN AMERICA WALKING DOWN THE STREET IS A CRIME. THE POLICE ACT AS IF WE’RE THEIR RUNAWAY SLAVES AND THEY NEED TO SEE OUR FREEDOM PAPERS. MUCH RESPECT FOR BRUH HAVING THE COURAGE TO RECORD THIS HARASSMENT.
This case is the epitome of why we hate calling 911 even if we need help.
America awards black celebrities that are complacent with pushing anything that lowers the self esteem of the black race in this country. For sure that played a major part in why Sheryl Underwood was even hired on the talk. Corporate America will never hire on prime time TV a strong black women such as Sister Souljah or Lauryn Hill to express their perspective on current events.
THE BIGGER PROBLEM THAN OPRAH BEING RACIALLY PROFILED IS THE REACTION FROM WHITE AMERICA. THEY ARE MAD AT HER FOR TELLING HER EXPERIENCE OF BEING RACIALLY PROFILED BECAUSE THEY FEEL THEY HAVE PLACED HER IN A POSITION OF PUSHING THE WHITE AGENDA; WHICH DOES NOT INCLUDE EXPOSING OR DISCUSSING RACE ISSUES, PARTICULARLY WHEN SHE’S THE VICTIM.
Like I said in the song Real America, ‘Stand Your Ground’ only work when white people are shooting.
There have been several reports that Amos Smith was one of four people killed by police in less than 27 hours in separate incidents across the bay area. This happens too often and gets forgotten. It’s on us to let the world see what’s real. Fuck spending so much time only sharing nonsense on social media. We also need to use twitter and facebook as a platform to expose the unjust bullshit we encounter as black people. IF WE DON’T SHARE OUR TRUTH WHO WILL.
She consciously prepared the caller for what she was about to say, so that’s a clear indication she said exactly what she felt.
In their mind I guess all black men look suspicious because that seems to be the most recurring reason they give for killing one of us. He was a suspicious character.
The “Stand your Ground” Florida gun law was created ONLY for the benefit of white Floridians. There’s no reason for Mr. Dooley, being a senior citizen over 70 years old, to be sent to prison when he tried to walk away from an altercation that was amplified by David James, an ex-military active man 28 years younger. This was even the testimony of David James’ own daughter. The basics of the “Stand your Ground” law is right to be able to legally defend yourself when you feel your life is in danger. It was nothing for this 240 lb white man to hit this over 70 year old, 160 lb black man and deliver a fatal blow.
THIS IS NOT ANYTHING NEW. BLACK PEOPLE IN AMERICA LOST MORE LIVES FROM GUN VIOLENCE THAN ANY OTHER RACE IN AMERICA’S HISTORY. BUT THERE WAS NEVER BEFORE A NATIONWIDE CONVERSATION ABOUT BANNING GUNS UNTIL GUNS ARE YOU USED TO HURT WHITE PEOPLE. EVEN THE NRA IS RECONSIDERING THE GUN PRESENCE IN SOCIETY. WE HAVE LOST COUNTLESS BLACK CHILDREN TO GUN VIOLENCE AND I AM SPEAKING FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WHEN I SAY THIS. THE BLACK ON BLACK VIOLENCE IN THE URBAN STREETS OF CHICAGO AND ACROSS THE COUNTRY IS ROOTED IN SELF HATRED AND POVERTY WHICH IS THE STRUCTURE OF AMERICA’S PLAN TO US KEEP KILLING OURSELVES. UNTIL WE INTERRUPT THEIR STRATEGY WE WILL CONTINUE TO BE VICTIMS WITHOUT ACCOUNTABILITY. GUNS ARE NOT CREATED BY THE BLACK COMMUNITY BUT THEY ARE PLACED IN OUR NEIGHBORHOODS. SO LET’S ASK OURSELVES, WHO CREATED GUN VIOLENCE?
R.I.P. TO ONE OF MY CHILDHOOD FRIENDS,NICOLE MAURY. DIED AT 9 OLD YEARS FROM A GUNSHOT WOUND TO THE HEAD.
NOW THEY’RE USING LOUD MUSIC AS SOME TYPE OF JUSTIFICATION FOR KILLING US. WHAT’S NEXT, HOW WE DRESS?
This reaction is no surprise, considering the majority of white America did not vote for OBAMA, and he was still able to pull off a win. White America feels like the country is theirs only, and have to maintain complete control. But the truth is if we keep moving in this direction the minorities will become the majority and the complexion of America will look a lot darker.
(REAL TALK WE WILL START A NEW AMERICA)
It’s ironic, the same cameras they put up to convict us are showing the true essence of racist police across America.
