He told the police eight times that he couldn’t breathe and they continued to choked him without any care for his life. If i killed someone that’s not trying to kill me i’m sure i would be facing a murder charge. Police should be held to the same accountability as us.

Neo-Nazis say they are conducting heavily armed patrols in and around Sanford, Florida, and are “prepared” for violence in case of a race riot. The patrols are to protect “white citizens in the area who are concerned for their safety” in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting last month, says Commander Jeff Schoep of …View full post

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.View full post
Like I said in the song Real America, ‘Stand Your Ground’ only work when white people are shooting.View full post
It’s clear in the eyes of the officer that she was viewed as being black first over being a female. When he was attacking her he didn’t see a female, he saw a black person only. This is a message to all black women across America, please don’t be naive to police brutality. You are not excluded from this practice that is so deeply embedded in the fiber of the vast majority of police organizations in this country.
Racism at the work place is the most frequent but also the least acknowledged form of racism in today’s society. The majority of the leadership positions in American companies are held by white men, which puts African American employees in a vulnerable situation when faced with racism. Think about it, it’s complicated to argue with your white boss when they are able to dictate your financial situation. In addition, the boss’ colleagues that are in a position of equivalent power, and are also typically white, likely share his views. This is why we have some black people that are content and submissive to being unfairly treated in the work place. They accept lower salaries than their white counterparts, adhere to more strict dress codes, and are less likely to be promoted. So much appreciation to these two black men that were willing to put their finances on the line for the respect of their culture.
As a black woman, my stomach turns watching this video. This incident goes far beyond questioning the ethics of law enforcement. The actions taken against these women were nothing short of rape and both officers should be charged accordingly. Although many may view this as two incompetent police officers, I believe this was a premeditated scenario and these two women were the unfortunate victims that day. The whole thing is wrong and suspicious. From not being allowed to clothe themselves, being handcuffed in their bathing suits, and only 1 glove between 2 different police cars for such a classic insignificant and unsubstantiated accusation – “I smell weed”. After what they endured, they deserve every single dollar from the lawsuit.
This is a reminder or wake up call to black people that think their financial status is going to allow them to be excluded from white racism. Chris Paul signed a 5 year / $107.34 million dollar contract with Donald Sterling. But in the eyes of Sterling , he still only views Chris as his black servant regardless of the salary.
This incident is your answer, if you’re questioning why the majority of black boys become men and don’t trust police.
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.
