Jean Cramer, a candidate for city council in Maryville Michigan, shocked everyone in the political forum by actually suggesting that they keep the city as White as possible.
“Keep Marysville a white community as much as possible,” said Cramer, one of five candidates vying for three open council seats in November.
As much as the politicians may act as if they are shocked by Jean Cramer's comments but we all know gentrification is happening in every major city in America. Although Marysville is not a major city and is a majority-white town, it is the way Cramer wants to keep it.
It's very rare that you see a politician actually be honest and tell the whole world how they feel about Black people.
This is one of those moments.
[Keep city as white 'as much as possible,' council candidate says, stunning forum in Michigan]
Colin Kaepernick replied to Jay-Z's claims that we are past kneeling by saying, "We ain't past nothing."
I said in my post addressing this subject some time ago that the NFL thinks that Jay-Z is still the voice of the Black community and whatever he does, Black people will follow suit. This is one of those times when they will find out they were wrong. Jay-Z has no pull other than the fact that he has a lot of money.
Of course, not every Black person in America got behind Kaepernick when he was kneeling in protest for the unarmed Black men in America that had been shot and killed by police officers without consequence.
What Jay-Z does not realize is that this cause is greater than his fame. Black people are not just ready to move on and not only that but as we see Eric Garner did not get justice and just goes to show that the powers that be are just ignoring the Black community as a whole. I'm not saying that kneeling will make them treat Black people fairly but it keeps the conversation going, that's the part that Jay-Z is missing. We don't want them thinking that we have just moved on like we usually do. Not this time.
After all of the mass shootings that have taken place at the hands of White extremists and White Nationalists, Black extremists is now considered more dangerous than White extremists are.
It is almost bizarre to think that Black extremism is the focus of counter terrorism when I can not recall one Black extremist killing people in the name of Black Nationalism.
Not only is Black Identity Extremism considered more dangerous than White Extremism but under Trumps administration, it is at the very top of the list of terrorist groups like Al Queda.
This is a desperate attempt to downplay White terrorists in the U.S that have reacted to their victimization mentality with prejudice and violence.
For years right-wing media propagandists have fed low-income White people the lie that brown people are taking their jobs away. In reality, technology is taking everybody's jobs away.
I am amazed at how often Black people are called out for labeling ourselves as victims but nobody calls out the Whites that literally blame minorities for everything. Truth is I should not be amazed at anything anymore. So I will end with this... if one Black person shot up a school or a mall, in the minds of racists, it would be worse than the many white extremists that have done the same thing over the past five years. So I will throw out a number here, if one Black extremist commits a terrorist attack, it would take anywhere from ten to twenty White extremists committing the same violent act before White extremism would be considered a threat. Yeah, that sounds about fair.
An Ole Miss student named Ben LeClere was suspended after he posted a photo of himself and 2 other men standing with guns in front of Emmett Tills roadside plaque that has been filled with bullet holes. The plaque commemorates the spot where Emmett Tills body was discovered after being brutally beaten to death by White men who believed Till whistled at a White woman. The men that killed Emmett Till were later acquitted by an all-white jury. It is not clear whether or not the men in the photo are the ones who shot the plaque. There have been several attempts to contact the men seen in the photo but so far there has been no response from either of them. Apparently, LeClere posted the photo on John Lowe’s Instagram page and it received hundreds of likes.
It is important o note that the three men involved belonged to a fraternity that calls General Robert E. Lee their “spiritual founder. Supposedly, Kapa Alpha has suspended all three of them but I believe it is only do to the pressure that as been on the fraternity by news organizations. I would not be surprised if the fraternity allows them back in after the story loses dies down a bit.
Finally, Geraldo Rivera stands up to FOX NEWS and their propaganda. After Trump supporters screamed "Send her back" during a Trump rally, Fox News has tried to downplay the situation.
Rivera called out the rally for being the racists that they are.
Rivera himself is a man of Puerto Rican descent and it would be unfathomable to think that someone deep down in his heart he is not pissed off about the blatant disrespect towards Hispanics.
Fox News loves to have their Black and Brown associates their so they can make it seem as if they are fair and balanced.
However, Fox News almost alwayd pick the worst people to represent minorities.
Fox, usually bring on minorities that are afraid to speak up and speak out against racism.
The New York Police officer Daniel Pantaleo, killed Eric Garner will not be charged. The U.S Department of Justice ruled not to bring civil charges against Officer Pantaleo.
After 5 years of waiting for justice in her son's death/murder, Garner's mother,
“Gwen Carr will not see justice prevail.
“I’ve been failed by every other source,” Gwen Carr said on CBS. “He should be fired. At least that would give me closure.”
Even more troubling is the fact that online, there are still people making excuses for the NY police officer that killed Eric Garner. Some people are using technical terms regarding the chokehold that was used on Garner as a way of giving the Officer an out. Police officers are not allowed to use a chokehold while making an arrest and claims that used a maneuver called “The Seatbelt” but you can clearly see Garner was being choked in the video. Once Garner said I can’t breathe the Officer should have at least tried to ease up on the chokehold but what all saw was the Officer ignored Garner who said eleven times, “I Can't Breathe”.
This is absolutely sickening and it reminds us all that Black people in America are not classified as citizens in the eyes of the law.
Black people are continuously accused of using the race card. What I never hear is how some White people do the same thing but in reverse. Donald Trump ran his Presidential campaign on racism and using stereotypes against Latinos to convince low encome White people to vote for him because he would give them jobs and stop illegal immigration.
It's important to note that the reason he was able to play that card against Latinos is because of this idea that illegal immigrants are stealing jobs from hard-working American citizens.
Now Trump is going after four non-white congresswomen and saying they should back to their countries. Trump would go on to say that these congresswomen come from countries with failed governments that are corrupt.
The problem is 3 out of 4 of these women were born in America, which speaks for the way racists truly think about non-whites. Racists tend to only see white people as Americans and everyone else is just a visitor, whether they were born in America or not.
Democrats always overreact whenever Trump says something racist. I personally feel that Trump knows exactly what he is doing and he knows his base. He says what his base wants to hear and what they want to hear is "White Power!".
Trump is a businessman at best but more importantly, he is a con-artist and Trumps supporters have been conned.
What they don't know and fail to understand is that Trump hatred is not limited to just Black and Brown people, Trump does not like anyone but himself.
They say there is a sucker born every day and Trump has found 40% of those suckers right here in America.
Tennesee GOV. Bill Lee signs a proclamation honoring early KKK member
Nathan Bedford Forrest. Despite backlash from the controversy, GOV. Bill Lee moved forward with the Proclamation, dubbing it "Nathan Bedford Forrest Day"
which caused Sen. Ted Cruz to tweet, "This Is Wrong".
Nathan Bedford Forrest was not only a member of the KKK but he was the first Grand Wizard and slave trader.
Most people are unaware that Tennessee is where the KKK was founded.
See reference below:
Rep. Steve Cohen Tweeted this response.
"We should not be honoring Nathan Bedford Forrest, the first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan and the perpetrator of the massacre at Fort Pillow. Gov. Lee should be bringing #Tennessee into the 21st century not backsliding into the 19th."
Tennessee has a long history of racism in its state and some Black people have claimed there are some areas that a Black person can't even drive through at night. The fact that the Governor of Tennessee would sign a proclamation honoring this racist scumbag is not only appalling but it says a lot about the state of Tennessee.
Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg faces issues in the Black community after a White police officer shot and killed a Black man that was allegedly holding a knife but the police officers body camera was not on so no one can verify if the person killed actually had a knife or not. Black people were in an uproar last week. Mayor Buttigeg was interrupted while speaking at a forum by angry citizens who some yelling that there is racist police officer in the department.
“ We have tried but not succeeded in bringing diversity into our police department and we need help.” Mayor Pete Buttigeg said.
The Mayor's statement was met with mixed reaction by the mostly Black crowd at the forum. The people voicing their concerns were very matter of fact about there being racists in the city's police department while Mayor Buttigieg seems to suggest that the racists need to be sought out.
“If anyone that is on patrol shown to be a racist or to do something racist in a way that is substantiated, then it will be his last day on the street.” - Mayor Buttigieg.
The timing of this is not good for the 2020 Presidential hopeful who has been seen as a pretty squeaky clean candidate up until now.
The Black Lives Matter chapter in Dayton Ohio is scheduled to hold a rally on Saturday, May 25. Unfortunately for them, they will be met with resistance as the hate group called the Honorable Sacred Knights, which is affiliated with the KKK in Indiana, will also be there to have a rally.
Black Lives Matter purposely scheduled their rally on this day to counter the KKK’s rally which already scheduled for May 25.
Carlos Buford, the organizer of the BLM chapter released a statement, explaining the reason for holding the rally on the same day as the KKK’s rally.
“Our Black community is facing astronomical levels of systemic racism and the launch of Black Lives Matter Dayton would like to be that bridge of hope for Black citizens by focusing on challenging laws and policies that keep Black people and communities oppressed and terrorized by police brutality,” Buford wrote on the group’s GoFundMepage.
Some people in the Dayton area fear that the event could turn into a powder keg.
The two sides may clash on this day in a way that is similar to Charlottesville.
First-grade teacher poses with a noose. No, I did not just make that up. I repeat a first-grade teacher posed with a noose and posted it on social media.
Four first grade teachers and a principal at Summerwind Elementary School in Palmdale have been suspended after a photo of them laughing and holding a noose was leaked.
So this is just the beginning. The Principal, Linda Brandt is the one who sent the emails out to her staff.
“You hate them, little black babies. You hate them, little Spanish babies. All them little minorities. You hate em!” Darrin Harper told Fox 11 on Thursday. “Because I know what she about. The pictures prove it, that’s what she about and that’s what she allow to go on. So she need to go.”
In this day and age where Black people constantly accused of race-baiting and you have ignorant so-called African Americans like Candace Owens, who believe that racism is no longer an issue, this report is very telling and shows just how far we to go. Racism is not a thing of the past, it is and always has been a part of Americana.
Before the racists get a chance to attack this message, let me just say that most of the school shootings are committed by White students. Secondly, these Black students have a reason to fear teachers being armed. Teachers are not trained police officers and lack the ability to implement the use of force. It is even fair to say that a good number of police officers lack the ability to implement the use of force.
I am in favor of increased law enforcement presence in the schools but armed teachers is just a step too far.
As it was admitted by a KKK member, White supremacist organizations have their members everywhere in America. The KKK member gleefully stated that there KKK members in politics, some of them are Judges, some of them are lawyers but the main thing that stuck out was how happy he was to admit that a lot of them are in law enforcement.
One Virginia Capitol Police Officer, Sgt. Robert A. Stamm has been connected to an extremist group called Asatru. According to the New York Times, the FBI foiled a plot by extremists in the Asatru faith to attack Black churches.
Per the New York Times-
Sgt. Robert A. Stamm of the Virginia Division of Capitol Police was fired this week after an investigation into a report that he had ties to white nationalists.
