Racial Discrepancies of Police Stops















Protests have erupted across the nation following the deaths of two black men by police last week, as well as the killing of five police officers during a protest in Dallas. One of the men killed by a police officer, Philando Castile of Minnesota, was fatally shot during a traffic stop because the officer thought Castile was going to use his gun in order to harm the officer.

Include the following visualizations to illustrate the racial disparities in traffic stops in Minnesota.

This Cheerios Commercial is Proof That Kids Are Taught to be Racist


 
This video, a wide-eyed take on the “controversial” Cheerios commercial, is proof that kids don’t know how to be racist until they’re taught to be racist.
Last month when Cheerios released an ad that featured a biracial family, commenters went ballistic, posting racist rants on the company’s YouTube page.
Cheerios shut down the comments section underneath the ad and rightfully stood by the commercial in their public statement: “At Cheerios, we know there are all kinds of families and we celebrate them all.”
But when these children watched the commercial, they didn’t understand why it was a big deal at all. The racial implications of it had to be explained to them.
“I thought Martin Luther King fixed this already,” said one.
The video, made by The Fine Bros., went viral this week, which isn’t suprising considering how much the Trayvon Martin case has become a part of our daily conversation.
While this video may feature children, it shows much more than an innocent perspective on race; it shows a fair and just one.

After 100 yrs.Census Will Drop “Negro’ for Black Americans


Negro on census 2013 02 25
 It took more than 100 years, but the US Census Bureau says it is dropping "Negro" as a word used to describe black Americans.
The change will take effect next year, The Guardian reported.
After that time, survey respondents can choose between "black" or "African-American."

The Census Bureau told The Associated Press it made the decision after months of research and public feedback.
Not many black Americans identify as being "Negro" anymore, and many find the term "offensive and outdated," Nicholas Jones, chief of the bureau's racial statistics branch, told the AP.
A Jim Crow-era term, "Negro" was first used in the 1900 census and became a commonly used word to desribe black Americans in the early 20th century.

But during the 1960s, civil rights activists began to reject the word as backwards and offensive.
A former Census Bureau director addressed controversy over the term in a 2010 blog post.
Officials toyed with dropping the word for the census taken that year, but determined a small segment of black Americans still identified themselves that way, former Census Bureau Director Robert Groves wrote in the post.
Those numbers dropped from about 50,000 people in 2000 to 36,000, the AP reported.

Police Investigate Tyler Perry Statement that He was Profiled and Mistreated by White Cops


Tyler Perry, in a post on Facebook on Sunday, described a tense encounter with police in Atlanta.
Tyler Perry, in a post on Facebook on Sunday, described a tense encounter with police in Atlanta.
 
(CNN) -- Atlanta police have launched an internal investigation into filmmaker Tyler Perry's claim he was racially profiled by two white officers who pulled his car over, the police department said.
Perry, one of America's most successful film and television producers, put a post on Facebook on Sunday describing a tense encounter with police, which he suggested "could have turned for the worse."
"It was so hostile," wrote Perry, who is African-American. "I was so confused. It was happening so fast that I could easily see how this situation could get out of hand very quickly. I didn't feel safe at all."
The Atlanta Police Department gave a statement to CNN on Wednesday confirming that two officers recently "encountered Mr. Tyler Perry during a traffic stop."
"Mr. Perry's concerns, as recently expressed by him publicly, will be the basis for referral of the matter to the department's Office of Professional Standards," the statement said. "OPS has opened an investigation to determine if Mr. Perry's claims can be substantiated, and whether any departmental policies or procedures were violated during the stop."
The investigation began Tuesday, and no action has been taken against the officers involved, a police spokesman said.
Perry acknowledged that he made a left turn from a right lane, which a police officer told him was illegal and the reason for stopping him. It was a practice recommended by his security team in case he was being followed, Perry said.
The misunderstanding and tension described by Perry suggests that the two white officers did not recognize him as one of Atlanta's richest and best-known citizens. It happened a few days before Perry hosted President Obama at his studio on March 17, he said.
The tension was defused after another police cruiser pulled up to the scene, Perry wrote.
"This officer was a black guy," Perry wrote. "He took one look at me and had that 'Oh No' look on his face."
The black officer spoke "in a hushed tone" to the two white officers, he said.
"After that, one of the officers stayed near his car while one came back, very apologetic," Perry wrote. Perry did not identify the officers or specify which police department in the Atlanta metropolitan area they were from.
Perry posed a question to his readers: "Do you see how quickly this could have turned for the worse?"
Perry's posting, which has drawn more than 101,000 "likes" and 18,426 comments, told what happened when two white police officers stopped him even though he has directed and acted in at least 16 feature films. But his movies are most popular among African-American audiences, and Perry is often dressed in drag as his "Madea" character.
The traffic stop happened near Perry's southwest Atlanta movie studio last month, according to the posting.

A Homophobe with a name of “king” Believes Black Youth are an "Endanger Species"


Saint of the Day: St. Peter RegulatusThe following piece of something appeared at Raw Story.com. The only thing they don’t mention is how homophobic this lady is. There are certain things we know out of experience not because anybody taught us, but still this engrained truth we for get: When your enemy endorses the sun, look out the window and make sure is not the moon they are talking about. In other words when your enemy endorses something, one should look to see why??
This lady is not looking for truth, like she never has. She has a name of “King" a liberator for all, not some. She uses that name to preach hatred and division in the people she doesn’t agree with. Like gay people.

Batman PosterShe has never come out this way talking about all the black young man that are killed by other black young men. Is that ok? In this particular way because people like her, but more sadly people that believe in fairness have made this unfortunate killing in a call for the races to get aroused. There is plenty of time to get arouse.  The cops, they have lost their legit right to the truth with people of fairness a long time ago.
Can we wait until all the facts are in? Both side have lied to get their point across, from showing pictures of a saint little boy whose mom now want to copyright his name?? to Assertion that this stupid man Zimmerman is just another batman and defender of the american way of life. All that False!
Can we wait? or Justice doesn’t wait? The contrary is true.  Justice does wait…no need to name all the instances in which we were leaded one way by the media to find out the opposite was true. Can we wait?  Only talking to fair people of fairness…the rest,  they believe what ever they think proves their point of view.

Raw Story.com:


"Anti-abortion activist Alveda King told a Fox News audience on Thursday that the death of African-American teenager Trayvon Martin could be considered “a late abortion.” King was reacting to a clip of Reverend Al Sharpton, who recently called at a rally for the arrest of alleged shooter George Zimmerman.
“I’m asking that we remember that Trayvon Martin’s family is grieving right now,” stated King, who is the niece of the late civil rights leader, Martin Luther King. “And in the midst of their grieving, they don’t need a lot of anger and fear surrounding that. And certainly Trayvon Martin, a young man cut down in his prime – I would say because of my ministry ‘aborted late,’ a late abortion — now his dreams are dead. But also Mister Zimmerman, his life was turned upside down. Two young men, one dead.”
She went on to echo the arguments of conservatives like Newt Gingrich, who recently stated, “When things go wrong to an American, it is sad for all Americans. Trying to turn it into a racial issue is fundamentally wrong.”
 “America’s youth are now an endangered species,” King insisted. “And so we must answer this non-violently. Not with rage and not with anger. Not by playing the race card.”
This is not the first time King has drawn unfavorable attention to herself by her extreme right-wing positions. She made her reputation as a conservative activst and author and is a former fellow of a conservative think-tank, the African-American outreach associate of a Roman Catholic pro-life group, and a prominent opponent of same-sex marriage. She also spoke at Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally in 2010 and was an active supporter of would-be persidential candidate Herman Cain."

Perry Owned Shooting RangeCalled “N**erHead”


If you thought the prospect of Chris Christie entering the race or Rick Perry’s weak debate performances have him in trouble, you haven’t seen anything yet.
Rick Perry owns a family hunting camp that was once called “Niggerhead,” and he is in the middle of a deep controversy because of it.
What makes it even worse is that Perry only decided to care about the name given to the camp when it became politically inconvenient to do otherwise.
Rick Perry took over the lease on his family’s hunting camp in rural Paint Creek, Texas, and at that time a rock which served as a greeting of sorts to the entrance of the camp included the name “Niggerhead.” Writing placenames on rock outcroppings isn’t unusual in that area.

All Hispanics are Now ‘White' or choose 'Black or White'


WASHINGTON, DC – Whites are not reproducing and are dwindling in numbers. Officials have a solution – Hispanics are now white.
Even though whites in America are not replacing themselves with enough babies, their numbers in the latest census is growing by a large percentage.  How can that be?
Because Hispanics are now officially (according to the U.S. government) – white!
The Obama Administration released this statement:  “‘Hispanic’ is an ethnicity, not a race. While the U.S. government first made this distinction in 1980, many Latinos continued to use the “some other race” box to establish a Hispanic identity.  So on the 2010 census forms we specifically instructed Latinos that Hispanic origins are not races and to select a recognized category such as white or black.”
So Hispanics are now forced to decide between white or black.
Many are choosing “white.”
To go further, the Obama Administration says that it is hard to truly define what “white” is.  “There are many shades of white, and there are many shades of black. And there are grays and that makes it hard to say if someone is really “white” or not,” Jay Carney, the White House Press Secretary, reportedly said.
Some Italian-Americans checked the “black” box on the 2010 census. “I’m darker than Obama.  I think that qualifies me as black,” said Big Jimmy Forsatella of Bayonne.
Meanwhile, Asians are also checking “white”  box.   Native Americans are checking the “black” box.  “There is no yellow or green or  purple skin pigment,” Jay Carney reportedly told reporters.  “White is not white.  And black is not black.”
Carney went to say that even declaring yourself as “white” or “black” can be discriminatory.  SO, the Obama Administration said that it will now be up to the individual to declare if they are “white” or “black”.     “Skin color is only one way to tell if you are black or white,” said Vice President Joe Biden.  “You could be white on the outside and black on the  inside.  Or black on the outside and white on the inside.”
Biden then declared that he considers himself “black.”
So, there you go.  Black and white is no longer black and white.  And, officially now, all Hispanics are white!!
Ay caramba!
