Any white cop will tell you it does.  You can’t predict how a Black will act, they’re just weird, so you must detain him first to protect your own safety… and only then, determine if they’ve ever committed a crime…

And no, you don’t have to do that to white people they tell you….

This brought to mind something quite weird…

Have you ever seen a Black guy walk through an all white neighborhood?  All the white people stare at him… No one says “hey, yo, what’s up bro?  How you feelin’ today?”  The phones ring behind closed curtains as old lady calls old lady… “Better be careful out there, there’s a black guy loose”…  It’s like: put one black guy on the street and everyone gets panicky…

This is fact.  You don’t see that in all-black neighborhoods… When a lone white guy walks down Spruce Street in Wilmington, everyone out on their stoops, calls out to him… Kids run up, “hey, Mister.”  Old folks holler from their porches… “Hot enough for you out there?”  Black men on the corner all say, “hey, what’s happenin’, bro?”…  The atmosphere is a community oriented around love and they open up their hearts (providing you aren’t police)… But it is fact: when a white guy walks down a Black neighborhood street, everyone doesn’t assume he is there to commit crime… But that is EXACTLY what goes on in white neighborhoods…..

Why is that?  Why do whites as a rule get all uppity around blacks, but blacks don’t around whites?

The phenomena which is very prevalent, gives credence to all those cops killing black men because of their skin color… Their fear of the black man is innate.  That “I’d better shoot first or he’ll kill me” attitude causes all of them to respond to fear in a crises and not with ones head…

And this is embarrassing for most white people to acknowledge but they do admit it.  They may not have racist bone in their body, but they KNOW, their community is very scared of black people… Whereas black communities will invite white strangers into to a home BBQ if one is going on… ( especially if they bring booze).

And if you come from that mentality of instinctive fear, you are going to make the assumption that guy is going to kill you first and ask questions later; “Ka Pow”… no questions needed now…

How do you diffuse this?

I believe you can ratchet things downward by asking someone to explain how a gene affecting pigment in your skin makes anyone more dangerous than someone lacking that gene…

I think if we all apply science to this problem and realize that it is just a gene that makes skin dark; no gene is going to make someone kill you first before you have time to assess the threat… any more than the lack of that pigment gene is going to make them kill you first… Pigment has nothing to do with wanting to kill, it’s there to protect skin from excessive sun… Otherwise white people would be locking up freckled Irish, out of fear over what might happen… “THEY HAVE DARK SPOTS ON THEIR SKIN!!! ”

Our race problem is strictly based on myths we carry from our childhoods.  Like Black people are dangerous; … Or white people are always nice to each other and always respect authority… of course neither are true… What is true is that most people do respect authority out of self preservation; a learned trait it comes from their experience in life, not a pigmentizing gene.

When we collectively come to the realization that race is arbitrarily decided by skin color, (it could be eye color, or foot size) then we will have overcome its influence… I know such success is kind of hard to accomplish when you have one major party’s Presidential candidate saying the exact opposite…

But if you were a white cop, and upon walking up to a car see it’s a black person and right then, take a deep breath and pretend its a white person like your Uncle Joe, then the tension with which you approach that car, is the same as if you approached some white old man with freckles…  The person in that car, who’s apprehensive and afraid you are going to go berserk as in those videos, all because he was driving while black, relaxes and diffuses as well for he looks at you as a black cop, same skin color as him…

If every cop did this exercise upon approaching a suspect or someone pulled over, we just might get along a little better…

Research has proven that blacks do get treated more meanly than any other race… We have that data… They are indeed roughed up a lot more than any other race…

Race Baiting

The severity seems to be white peoples’ fault; those same white people who freak out every time a black person strolls through their neighborhood and whisper:  “what’s he doing here?”

 

 

She lived in Hudson’s district.  But at school, she like the excitement of the “wrong crowd” and hung out with them…  One time they ran, and she was caught…  The plea offered her was to “rat out your boyfriend”, or 10 years in state prison…  An adult would have ratted out the boyfriend.  But a young black girl deeply in love, listens to her emotions and principles.  She went to jail.

She’s out now. She’s smart compared to most ex-prisoners, She is still on state assistance.  She is clean. She spends 8 hours a day following leads for jobs.  They always end at “the box”….

One would never have thought her to be an ex-convict. She is bright, articulate, animated, and when she tells her story, you certainly see how she simply got trapped up in a justice system that has callous regard for anyone with darker skin colors….

She would make anyone, especially the first person who hired her and provided her real living wages, a marvelous employee. But she never gets the chance to tell her story.  Her application gets dropped off, goes into the file DO NOT HIRE, and nothing more is heard….

Deborah Hudson, a Republican Delaware Representative, believes this is great.  “This is wonderful” her actions show the world, as she cast her vote against this black woman, who grew up as a well-to-do little girl in her district,  by voting not to disallow the box…

The box is where you must check if you have been convicted of any criminal violation.

I wonder what was going through her mind.  How can anyone turn their back on real human beings just to support their party, the Republican Party, a party that incidentally is dying out everywhere except in extreme radical pockets, as we speak?

How does one live with that?

I think she should renounce her party, and switch now to the Democratic caucus, so she can finally be allowed to vote her conscious.  That is why she was elected, right?

Republican States that decide to opt out of Obamacare are allowed to set their own standards for Medicare and Medicaid. That means they can set their own poverty levels at where it kicks in.

By definition, Republican States have a government that favors the wealthy over the 98%.

The level on which one can be insured by Medicare or Medicaid is set artificially low.

Bobby Jindal, sometimes spoken as a presidential hopeful for 2016, has a threshold of 25% of the Federal poverty level before Medicaid kicks in. The Federal Minimum required by Obamacare would be 113$ of the Federal poverty level. (In comparison, Delaware’s minimum is 119% of the Federal poverty level.

Those states opting in, will cover people up to the Federal Minimum. These states which opted out, Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, South Carolina, South Dakota, Maine and Louisiana, now all get to set their own minimum levels of Medicare.

Instead of providing medical coverage at the federal minimum of $14,856 or less, in Louisiana one must have a yearly income of $1229 or less. Essentially no coverage at all. Anyone making less than $14,856 or more than $1229 is not covered. They have no medical insurance. Their plight if further compounded because in these Republican states, hospitals ARE allowed to turn away those who cannot pay, provided they are not in severe pain.. The flu or sprained ankle injuries are not covered. Prescriptions are not covered.

So, whereas Obamacare is a great stepping stone for achieving affordable healthcare in all those states subscribing to it. …. it returns those Republican states so refused it simply on “Political Principal” (there is no additional cost involved the first three years), to the medical practices available in the Great Depression

I’m shocked, shocked no one has this story this morning…

If you haven’t heard, Ron Paul Delegates had a commanding majority in the Louisiana Convention, and the extreme minority of Romney-aligned Republicans staged a coup, and had the Ron Paul Delegates arrested, including the newly elected Chairman of the Louisiana Republican Party… The 58 year chairman was thrown to the floor, dislocating his prosthetic hip, dragged out of the room, despite is pleas of “I’m the chairman of the party.”

Thugs, Republican thugs… Read the account then go out and punch the first Republican you see right in the mouth…

(Lol. Kidding of course. Bet you’ll feel the same way after reading the truth.. (which incidentally, isn’t on any of the networks news programs this morning…)

Boy, do we truly live in a FUCKED UP America……..
