Know Anyone Who Thinks Racial Profiling Is Exaggerated? Watch This, And Tell Me When Your Jaw Drops.


This video clearly demonstrates how racist America is as a country and how far we have to go to become a country that is civilized and actually values equal justice. We must not rest until this goal is achieved. I do not want my great grandchildren to live in a country like we have today. I wish for them to live in a country where differences of race and culture are not ignored but valued as a part of what makes America great.

NYTimes: The DuBose Family: Grieving, but Determined

"I have had the honor and the solemn duty to be around many families with similar losses in the last couple of years, and there is something of an unsettling sameness: The feeling of being thrust into a harsh spotlight when you’d rather quietly grieve; being motivated by a sense of mission to fight for the person who is lost, all the while emotionally and physically running on empty; resisting the pull of a world trying desperately to reduce the man or woman you loved into a martyr it can champion or, conversely, a menace it can despise."

NYTimes: New York State Awards 5 Medical Marijuana Licenses

"The companies are Bloomfield Industries Inc., which plans to grow marijuana in Queens and dispense it in Manhattan, Nassau County and two upstate counties; Columbia Care NY, which will grow and operate a dispensary in Monroe County as well as in Manhattan, Suffolk County and Clinton County, on the Canadian border; Empire State Health Solutions, which will grow in Fulton County, northwest of Albany, and have dispensaries in Albany County and Queens, as well as two other locations; Etain, which will grow in Warren County, in the Adirondacks, and dispense in two upstate and two Hudson Valley counties, including Westchester; and PharmaCann, which will grow in Orange County, northwest of New York City, and operate a dispensary in the Bronx, and three upstate counties."

NYTimes: Dylann Roof, Suspect in Charleston Killings, Indicates Desire to Plead Guilty

"CHARLESTON, S.C. — At a brief but emotional hearing in federal court here on Friday, Dylann Roof indicated that he wanted to plead guilty to federal charges related to the killing last month of nine members of a storied African-American church."

Glare of Video Is Shifting Public’s View of Police - The New York Times

"Videos have provided “corroboration of what African-Americans have been saying for years,” said Paul Butler, a professor at Georgetown University Law School and a former prosecutor, who called them “the C-Span of the streets.” On Thursday, the family of Samuel DuBose, an unarmed black man who was shot to death by a University of Cincinnati police officer on July 19, said the officer would never have been prosecuted if his actions had not been captured by the body camera the officer was wearing."

Sanders, Clinton, and the Democratic Party should thank #BlackLivesMatter

"As Jamelle Bouie rightly put it, what happened in Phoenix was "more than a food fight." It brought to light a tension—really, an open wound—that already existed within the progressive movement, even if some of us couldn't or wouldn't see it until last weekend. The contentious interactions between Sanders and those who demanded he address racial injustice separately and independent from economic injustice only brought that wound to light, those interactions did not create it. Furthermore, Phoenix was absolutely necessary in order to begin to repair the wound, to heal it in a way that strengthens the progressive movement’s ability to lead this country toward substantial progress on both of these vitally important issues. What connects them, of course, is the fundamental principle of progressive politics: the fight against injustice of every kind, the fight to build a more just society."

Texas County’s Racial Past Is Seen as Prelude to Sandra Bland’s Death - The New York Times

"PRAIRIE VIEW, Tex. — When Sandra Bland enrolled in 2005 at Prairie View A&M University, the historically black institution founded here almost 140 years ago, its students were still waging a civil rights war that had ended elsewhere decades before: a legal battle, against white Waller County officials, for the right to vote in the place they lived.

It took years and a federal court order, but the students won. When Ms. Bland returned here the morning of July 9, driving 16 hours from Chicago to interview for a job at her alma mater, the Justice Department had abandoned its court-ordered oversight of students’ voter registration, the campus had its own polling place, and the county had, in one key respect, passed a racial milestone.
Four days later, Ms. Bland was dead in a county jail cell after a routine traffic stop by a state trooper escalated into a physical confrontation not 500 yards from the university’s entrance. And any talk of milestones gave way to questions about whether the county’s checkered history of race relations had set the stage for a tragedy that the authorities acknowledge might never have happened had they followed their own rules."

Trump Builds One Brand and Damages Another - The New York Times

Donald Trump is exactly what the Republican Party deserves.
The Republican Party has nurtured anti-immigrant, xenophobic nastiness for years, but it has tried to do so, at least at the national level, in language that disguised it as a simple issue of law and order.
Trump has blown all that to bits.

Sandra and Kindra: Suicides or Something Sinister? - The New York Times

“A statement from the Waller County Sheriff’s Office said that the cause of Ms. Bland’s death appeared to be self-inflicted asphyxiation. An autopsy on Tuesday classified her death as suicide by hanging, according to The Chicago Tribune.”
Indeed, the Waller County district attorney, Elton Mathis, told a Houston station last week: “I will admit it is strange someone who had everything going for her would have taken her own life.”
