2 Cops Dead – NYPD Declares War on Black People

View image | gettyimages.com Earlier today, a tragedy occurred in Brooklyn, NY.  Two police officers were shot and killed while in their patrol car by a deranged person who earlier in the day had shot is girlfriend in the stomach. The death of the police officers was not warranted – they did not deserve it. As soon as we got word of what happened, we immediately began telling everyone to be extra vigilant.  Why? Because we expected right wing media and conservatives to pounce on this and paint a broad stroke across all of us (black people).  In addition to the police...

Only Black people riot

It’s a belief that is most certainly not true yet often believed and repeated. Mainstream media, social media, talking heads, pundits (indie or otherwise) have been in over drive in the wake of the grand jury’s decision not to indict Police Officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of unarmed teenager Mike Brown. The accompanying protests and riots fill timelines, news feeds, streams, and airwaves. The ugly sides of some people are on full display in 140-characters or less.

Zimmerman vs DMX Cancelled – Sanity Prevails 1

Zimmerman vs DMX Cancelled – Sanity Prevails

Well it seems good conscience and public outrage may have won out over Capitalism. The so-called “celebrity boxing” match between the killer from Florida and rapper DMX has been cancelled. Is this a precedent? I think this might be a precedent. Maybe, just maybe, if we try we could make this part of the culture. I’m a dreamer. Anyway, in these few and far between moments we should rejoice. The promoter Damon Feldman tweeted the news.
