Ray Rice Beating Black Woman, California Highway Patrol Officer Beating Black Woman

Why is America so shocked and or taken aback by the Ray Rice video and not the CHP video of a cop beating a woman? Why is the Ray Rice video shown in constant loop on main stream media but the CHP video is not?


Why is the CHP officer still employed but Ray Rice is not?

How Can America React With Such Swift Accountability After Viewing The Video of Ray Rice But Not With The Video of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, etc.?

Don't get me wrong, I think Ray Rice will probably deserve everything negative that's coming his way for assaulting his wife which was his fiancée at the time of the incident. However, I can't help but think how the corporate NFL, the Baltimore Ravens fan base, Ray Rice's teammates, and America in general were basically willing to give Mr. Rice a slap on the wrist for assaulting a woman. Rice was handed down a two-game suspension and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced a bunch of very tough domestic violence policy changes for the league. Of course, this was all before TMZ released the full video this morning of Rice allegedly knocking his fiancée out cold on an elevator floor with a blow to her face.

Why doesn't it feel like America as a whole came together warranting the same swift accountability after viewing videos of Michael Brown being shot in the street by police, Eric Garner being choked to death by police in the street, and many other black men and women being basically murdered by police in the streets and on the corners of America?

Although I personally witnessed many white people come out in protest against police in both the Brown and Garner incidents, both incidents feels largely like "black" issues. The protests against what appears to be police misconduct has indeed been overwhelmingly black led and black attended. However, black people have also been just as outspoken against Ray Rice allegedly assaulting his fiancée. You don't hear many black people saying stuff like, "Wait until all the evidence is in" or "let's not jump to conclusions". In fact, you don't hear many white people saying that either after the release of the Ray Rice video this morning.

On the other hand, it is almost expected that when talking to white people when a white person may be on the punishing end of an incident to hear them quote the quotes above. On the contrary, when speaking to black people on issues where a black person may be on the punishing end of an incident, they tend to call it like they see it and is less likely to utilize such quotes as above. At least that's been my experience. Why is this? Someone please enlighten me.

Why is it so hard for so many white people to see misconduct or even murder by the police officers in the Brown and Garner videos but find it so easy to see a horrible crime in the Ray Rice video? To every single black person that I've spoken with on all three of these videos, the police officers and Ray Rice are undoubtedly wrong. The same sentiments holds true for nearly every white person I've spoken to on the Ray Rice issue (yes, I've spoken to several white people today on this issue). However, most white people that I've spoken to on the Brown and Garner videos are "waiting until all the evidence is in". Either way, two men have lost their lives and another man's life may just be ruined.

Send Ferguson Police to Fight ISIS/ISIL

I mean...since they want to be all military and everything. Issue the policemen of the Ferguson, MO. Police Department military deployment orders and let's really see how they stack up against armed forces who have as much hate in their hearts as they do.

I'm willing to bet that those clowns would wet their pants as soon as the deployment orders hit their cowardly little hands.

Just a thought...

...they just look so tough and ready for war!

Contradict Pics of the Week

Cliven Bundy Ranch Standoff with Law Enforcement (Federal)
Ferguson, MO Standoff with Law Enforcement (Local)

Why Are White Police Officers Killing Black Persons At the Rate of Nearly Two A Week?

...And yet, and it is so rare for black officers to do the same: They have the same training. Is it simply a case of sympathy and/or empathy in the case of black police officers? Or maybe, in the case of white police officers is it fear, prejudice, racism, or bigotry? Are the statistics skewed in some sort of way?

In her book The Isis Papers: The Keys to the Colors, Dr. Frances Cress Welsing suggests, "These Black and other non-white males are being killed by white males in uniforms who have been authorized to carry guns. This particular form of murder and slaughter is called justifiable homicide."
Do white police officers believe that they've been given a hunting license to hunt down black men because they've been issued a badge and a gun? I never here about off-duty white police officers having confrontations with black men knuckle to knuckle.

Welsing goes on to suggest, "Because Black males, of all non-white males, have the greatest potential to genetically annihilate the white collective, Black males will experience the greatest ferocity white supremacy's attack through justifiable homicide." Are white police officers trying to kill as many black men as possible with guns and incarceration before black men make them extinct by impregnating white women? Is melanin really that scary to white males?

The KKK Is Raising Funds for Officer Darren Wilson

Before the most well-known American white supremacy group could even find out the name or race of the Ferguson, MO. police officer who shot and killed teenager Michael Brown, the group felt a need to raise money for the police officer.

I think we can safely assume that there's no way on earth that the KKK would attempt to raise one red penny for the officer if they thought he was white. Like you, I've never thought of the KKK as a very smart or sophisticated group of people. However, even they had enough smarts and sophistication to know that the officer who shot Michael Brown must be white.

What does that say about what Americans truly knows about the relationships between law enforcement and African-American citizens (young black males in particular)?

Block Out The Vote (BOTV)?

Since the presidential election of Barack Obama, 40 Republican-controlled legislatures at the state level have introduced legislation to change voting procedures in their states. The NAACP and other civil rights organizations have gone on record suggesting that the overwhelming majority of the changes in these states voting procedures are deliberately intended to suppress the vote of blacks and other minorities, the elderly, the poor, and the youth vote.These groups also suggests that these changes are intended to vote President Obama right out of office in the November presidential election by suppressing the vote of his base supporters.
One of the most disturbing and revealing of these state legislative proposals is in the state of Florida. Many churchgoers in the state, particularly in black churches, had grown accustomed to voting the Sunday before Tuesday elections  in an event commonly known as "Souls to the Polls". Ministers and other church leaders would make valiant efforts getting their congregations and surrounding communities out to vote on those Sundays before election day. Many of the churchgoers are elderly, disabled, and poor and lack transportation and other resources to make it to the polls on Tuesday. These churches were instrumental in providing transportation needs on Sunday utilizing buses and vans and encouraging carpooling. The Florida state legislature passed legislation canceling voting on the Sunday prior to election day. Governor Rick Scott signed the legislation into law.
40 Republican-controlled legislatures at the state level have introduced legislation to change voting procedures in their states; 17 of those states have already passed legislation changing procedures. Is this proof that PTBPD exist? Or, is it simply states attempting to prevent voter fraud and protecting voting integrity?

Are Black Dems Getting Intolerant of Black Repubs (video)?

Has the political flames been turned up between blacks on opposite ends of the political spectrum? Has what many view as racially charged rhetoric and actions/deeds from Newt Gingrich, other GOP presidential candidates, and other GOP elected officials taken its toll on many black democrats? The interviewer in this video definitely seems at his wits end! However, kudos to the lady; she demonstrated great poise in the lambasting she was getting from the interviewer. Was the interviewer out of line here (especially considering the interviewee’s a woman)?   

Also, do you think the rhetoric from self-identified black conservatives like Herman Cain and Allen West has really help intensify the heat between black liberals/progressives and black conservatives/Tea Party members? How should the two groups handle this going forward? Watch the video to the end for reference to the related link below.
