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.

Finally the President is doing the right thing on immigration.

NYTimes: Obama Said to Plan Moves to Shield 5 Million Immigrants

"Asserting his authority as president to enforce the nation’s laws with discretion, Mr. Obama intends to order changes that will significantly refocus the activities of the government’s 12,000 immigration agents. One key piece of the order, officials said, will allow many parents of children who are American citizens or legal residents to obtain legal work documents and no longer worry about being discovered, separated from their families and sent away.

That part of Mr. Obama’s plan alone could affect as many as 3.3 million people who have been living in the United States illegally for at least five years, according to an analysis by the Migration Policy Institute, an immigration research organization in Washington. But the White House is also considering a stricter policy that would limit the benefits to people who have lived in the country for at least 10 years, or about 2.5 million people."

Why I Hate NYPD.

New York City Can Finally Move Ahead With Stop-And-Frisk Settlement

"NEW YORK -- Lawmakers and advocates rejoiced Friday after a federal appeals court refused to allowNew York City police unions to intervene in the city’s sweeping stop-and-frisk settlement. The decision removed the last major obstacle for Mayor Bill de Blasio in reforming the police department's use of the tactic, and in fulfilling a campaign promise that helped him win the mayor's race a year ago.

“Today's ruling rejects the police unions' baseless attempts to obstruct stop-and-frisk reforms,” said Priscilla Gonzalez of the group Communities United for Police Reform. “The decision puts us on the road forward to engage in a citywide process to identify concrete changes that will protect the constitutional and civil rights of all New Yorkers.”

Last year, U.S. District Judge Schira Scheindlin ruled that the NYPD’s use of stop-and-frisk was unconstitutional and amounted to an “indirect policy of racial profiling.” She ordered remedies and a federal monitor to oversee the department.

Chirlane McCray Slams New York Post For Publishing 'Lies'

"The first lady of New York City took aim at the New York Post in a recent op-ed, accusing the publication of printing lies about her feelings toward Police Commissioner Bill Bratton.

On Sunday, Chirlane McCray's photo was splashed on the front page of the Post beneath a banner teasing "War At The NYPD" and beside the headline "I Told You We Can't Trust Him!" The Post claimed McCray made the remark during a conversation with husband Mayor Bill de Blasio, blaming Bratton for Chief of Department Philip Banks' abrupt resignation last week.

“She is friendly with Banks, and he was her choice” for commissioner, a supposed source told the Post. “She was very upset when he resigned."

Kuwaiti Prisoner Held for 13 Years Is Released From Guantánamo -

WASHINGTON — A Kuwaiti man held by the United States without trial for nearly 13 years in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, was released early Wednesday, the military said. His repatriation is the first transfer to result from a new system of parole-board-like hearings to periodically review whether it is still necessary to keep holding prisoners.

The Kuwaiti, Fawzi al Odah, is also only the second low-level prisoner to be released from Guantánamo this year. Last year, President Obama had pledged to revive his efforts to close the prison. Administration officials said that an end-of-year flurry might be coming: The Pentagon has notified Congress that nine other detainees, including six bound for Uruguay, may soon be transferred.

The Shake-Up at Rikers Island -

"Violence and corruption became entrenched at New York City’s Rikers Island jail because officers who ignored or even condoned that culture were moved steadily up the ladder into management.

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s correction commissioner, Joseph Ponte, continued that practice five months ago when he promoted William Clemons, a warden at Rikers, to be chief of department, the highest-ranking uniformed officer. That was against the advice of the Department of Investigation, which had reviewed the man’s record and objected to the promotion.

Mr. Clemons and two others have now stepped down in what Mr. Ponte’s office describes as part of an effort to restructure the bureaucracy and better control violence. This change is a long time coming. But it is not enough to restore public confidence in Mr. Ponte’s judgment.

The controversy over the Clemons promotion surfaced in September when The Times reported that the department under Mr. Ponte’s predecessor had sanitized a 2012 report that found that Mr. Clemons and his deputy warden, Turhan Gumusdere, had been derelict in their jobs and failed to supervise the jail they oversaw at the time."

Recommended read from Report: No-fly zone over Ferguson was aimed to keep media away

"The Federal Aviation Administration agreed to a St. Louis County Police requested no-fly zone over Ferguson, Missouri, which allowed for exemptions for police helicopters and commercial flights, but restricted the media, the Associated Press is reporting. The AP obtained recordings via the Freedom of Information Act, which revealed that the 12 day restriction of 37 square miles of airspace around Ferguson may have deliberately hampered freedom of the press."

Why Reverse Racism Isn't Real

"I spend a lot of time on the internet. I write in various places on the internet, I interact in lively and active commenting communities at different websites, and I partake in a multitude of online forums that have an ongoing and pretty continuous stream of communication between the contributors. Ya know what I’ve noticed? Any time a PoC starts to talk about their experiences with racism, a white person chimes in to derail the conversation and talk about their own experiences with ‘reverse racism.’ And yes, I’m going to say ‘any time’ and not ‘sometimes’ because I have never once been in an internet dialogue amongst commenters and observed a PoC bring up their experience with real, actual, systemic or overt racism and not encountered a white person trying to make it all about their experiences with perceived racism. Not once. It happens every time. Ya know what else? That shit is tired, played out, and incorrect. So let’s talk about why reverse racism isn’t real and why white people need to let that one go."
