“Obama Issues Statement On Deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castille”


obama-statement-550x323President Obama made a brief statement about the senseless shooting deaths of 2 black males by cops.

In a statement released on Thursday, Obama said he was “encouraged” that his justice department opened an investigation into the death of Alton Sterling.

The 37-year-old father-of-5 was selling CDs outside a Baton Rouge convenience store when he was killed by 2 cops early Wednesday.

Obama also mentioned 32-year-old Philando Castile, a Minnesota cafeteria worker who was shot to death on Wednesday by a milquetoast cop during a routine traffic stop.

“We’ve seen such tragedies far too many times, and our hearts go out to the families and communities who’ve suffered such a painful loss,” Obama said in his statement.

Obama took care to praise the thousands of men and women in law enforcement who risk their lives to protect the public.

“To admit we’ve got a serious problem in no way contradicts our respect and appreciation for the vast majority of police officers who put their lives on the line to protect us every single day,” Obama said. “It is to say that, as a nation, we can and must do better to institute the best practices that reduce the appearance or reality of racial bias in law enforcement.”

Four white men ordered to pay $840,000 for Jim Crow-style killing of Mississippi black man


untitledThey called their malicious outings “Jafrica” when these Mississippi teenagers from predominantly white Rankin County piled into their cars and drove into predominantly African American Jackson, Mississippi to “kill a nigga“. These trips were named for a portmanteau of “Jackson” and “Africa,” a nod to their specific and evil mission: to terrorize strangers for no other reason than that they were black. An evil act and racist behavior passed down from the Jim Crow era of their ancestors. 

Sometimes they carried weapons; other times they operated solely with their fists. The young people targeted those who were homeless or drunk, because they would be easier to prey on and less likely to report an assault.

James Craig Anderson (pictured above), was killed during a “Jafrica” outing that day, a hate crime that led to arrests and sentences for 10 young people involved, all of whom pleaded guilty.

On Monday, four of the most prominent co-conspirators — Deryl Dedmon, 23, John Rice, 23, Dylan Butler, 24 and William Montgomery, 26 — were ordered by a federal judge in Mississippi to pay $840,000 in restitution to Anderson’s estate. The restitution case was prosecuted by the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department.

Chicago Teacher Calls Students “NIGGERS” After They Ask Not To Be Called African-American


n-word1

According to the Huffington post:

Last week, an Illinois substitute teacher reportedly called a group of four middle school girls the N-word after they asked not to be called African-American.

The incident occurred at Jay Stream Middle School in the town of Carol Stream during an eighth-grade social studies class. When interviewed by local news outlet WMAQ, student Mea Thompson, who is of Jamaican descent, said they asked the teacher not to call them African-American since none of them are from Africa.

“She said, ‘It’s the politically correct term.’ Then she said, ‘Well, back then you guys would be considered the N-word,'” Thompson said, recalling the exchange. “We were so shocked and we were like, ‘What? Excuse me? That’s not correct to call us that.’ She was like, ‘Well, back then that’s what African-Americans were called.’”

The teacher allegedly used the N-word several times over the 80-minute class period.

“After the shock and hurt, I’m angry,” Thompson’s mother, Shayna, said. “It’s a new world, and the people of the past that still hang onto hatred and bigotry don’t belong in this world anymore.”

When reached for comment, the District Superintendent William Shields said the events in the classroom are still unclear, but said the teacher would not be returning to the school.

Newt Gets The Boot For Calling Obama, The Food Stamp President!


During Monday night’s GOP debate in Myrtle Beach, SC, presidential candidate Newt Gingrich called President Barack Obama “The Food Stamp President”. Gingrich insists that black kids don’t need handouts from President Obama — they need jobs. Newt is trying to imply that, because President Obama is African-American he’s giving blacks the very thing they know best: a free ride.

Gingrich says schoolchildren should be given janitorial jobs because, in his opinion, janitors in the NYC public school system earn way too much money. The average annual salary for a NYC public school janitor is $80,000, compared to a teacher who earns $45,000 annually.

According to the NY Daily News, Gingrich argued the best thing public schools could do for students – particularly black students – was to give them a broom.

“Can’t you see that this is viewed at a minimum as insulting to all Americans, but particularly to black Americans?” asked Fox News questioner Juan Williams, who is part Hispanic and black.

“No, I don’t see that,” Gingrich responded, with rousing applause from the majority white audience.

On Jan. 21, voters in South Carolina will vote to pick their choice for the Republican presidential candidate. Recent polls in the South show Gingrich running second behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney., who did not oppose one word out of Gingrich’s mouth. That means they’re two of a kind because silence brings consent.

“Virginia GOP Issue Zombie Picture Of Pres.Obama On Halloween”


A Virginia county GOP committee found itself in hot water after using an image of President Barack Obama with a bullet hole through his head to make a Halloween joke.

How petty of the Virginia Gop and these are supposed to be grown people.

An email sent by the Loudoun County GOP that included an image of Obama as a zombie has been widely criticized by Democrats and Republicans alike. You know how they do? Throw the rock then hide their hands, if they could burn a cross on the White House lawn and get away with it they would.

“We are going to vanquish the zombies with clear thinking conservative principles and a truckload of Republican candy,” said the email, which served as an invitation to a Halloween parade.

The image of the President was created from a copyrighted AP photo of Obama in 2006, when he was still serving in the Senate, according to The Associated Press.

“This is a disgusting and violent portrayal of the president of the United States,” said the Democratic Party of Virginia spokesman Brian Coy. The Republican governor of Virginia, Bob McDonnell, called for an apology.

What do you think? Is an apology necessary?
