  • A Black and Blue America Needs Healing

    07/25/2016 7:17:12 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 14 replies ^ | July 25, 2016 | Terry Paulson
    We’re living in a black and blue America, bruised by racial tensions erupting on both sides of the divide. Xavier Johnson was a racist, taking aim in Dallas to kill as many white policemen as possible. The copycat murders of officers in Baton Rouge and other cities have just escalated the crisis. Some police may have harbored racist beliefs that helped fuel unjustified use of force with innocent black civilians. Racism remains, but harping on the past and the few officers who live out their bias cannot be the answer. Most Americans detest racism of any color from police and...

    After two decades of drastic crime reduction, homicides in America’s 50 largest cities increased by 17% in 2015. Following two decades of employing proactive police techniques whose greatest beneficiaries were residents of poor minority neighborhoods, officers suddenly started to face new obstacles. When working in inner cities, cops found themselves surrounded by jeering crowds whenever they attempted to make an arrest or simply interview citizens. Predictably, officers then began to retreat from proactive policing techniques. Rather than questioning a suspicious person who appeared to be hiding a gun they let an armed robbery take place. They began reacting to crimes...

Called the “Blue Lives Matter” bill, the measure expands the state’s hate crime law to include law enforcement officers, firefighters and other emergency medical services personnel. “The overarching message is that hate crimes will not be tolerated in Louisiana,” Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards told in a written statement. He added that he has “great respect” for the work that law enforcement officers do and the daily risks they take. “I thought it was critical that we add...

    Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) lambasted Trump's claim to be the "law and order" candidate, calling it "a cruel and insensitive attempt to place the values of white Americans over those of us who are black. It is racism that forces blacks to commit crimes to support themselves and their families. The kind of enforcement that Trump would impose threatens the livelihoods of a significant segment of the minority community." Clyburn may have a point. According to data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics, blacks are responsible for the majority of robberies and murders in the 75 most populated U.S. counties....

    Recently, I have made some pretty charged statements about Black Lives Matter. In a nutshell, I have argued that the organization is not a pro-black civil rights group. Instead, it is an anti-white anti-free speech mob. Evidence of my contention isn’t very hard to gather. In fact, you have to have your head buried pretty deep in the ground in order to miss it. Consider the following examples: -In August of 2015, Black Lives Matter protestors overtook a Bernie Sanders event in Seattle. They physically stormed the stage and demanded that they be heard lest they shut the event down...

    There can be no dispute that Barack Obama was forced to wade through unprecedented bigotry in his speedy ascent to the most powerful perch in the world. His predecessor, George W. Bush, called it the “soft bigotry of low expectations.” A street hustler with sterling academic bona fides — which are always suspect — Mr. Obama had never accomplished a single thing as a politician when he decided to run for president. In his 2008 campaign, he was most admired for not voting to invade Iraq — a vote that took place years before he joined the U.S. Senate.

Adding controls that account for important context and civilian behavior reduces, but cannot fully explain, these disparities. On the most extreme use of force – officer-involved shootings – we find no racial differences in either the raw data or when contextual factors are taken into account.

    The head of a law enforcement advocacy group lashed out at President Barack Obama in the wake of the Dallas shootings that left five police officers dead, accused the president of carrying out a "war on cops." “I think [the Obama administration] continued appeasements at the federal level with the Department of Justice, their appeasement of violent criminals, their refusal to condemn movements like Black Lives Matter, actively calling for the death of police officers, that type of thing, all the while blaming police for the problems in this country has led directly to the climate that has made Dallas...
  • The Wound Not Allowed To Heal

    Therefore thou shalt say this word unto them; Let mine eyes run down with tears night and day, and let them not cease: for the virgin daughter of my people is broken with a great breach, with a very grievous blow.( Jeremiah 14:17)America is hurting. She has been torn apart by those who hate her. They have exploited her wounds and refused to allow them to heal, in spite of many valiant efforts by people of good will to bring the healing. One of the wounds that has been exploited is the "racial wound". Indeed, like other nations, America has...

    I love and support cops of ALL races who do their jobs. The MEDIA and the federal government, though, is trying to WHITEWASH the FACT that it was WHITE COPS who were targeted.

    Just heard a news show with a statement from Valerie's man child where he said that Black Lives Matter doesn't think they are racist. They also, he says, think Blue Lives Matter AND that All Lives Matter. The media apparently hasn't challenged these LIES by Obama.

    The Black Lives Matter movement is nothing less than a so-called movement stirring stuff up. Sure, the police forces might have a few bad apples, but aren't these people supposed to be all for due process? Someone takes a video or something, but without the full story/context, and immediately, the cops are guilty? I think not. One of the problems the black community has today is the much higher rate of crime among blacks compared to other groups, Hispanics included. Lower school graduation rates, low college attendance, and even lower majoring in USEFUL majors among blacks who get to college....
  • Jesse Williams' Rant -- Media Didn't Fact-Check His Lies

    Where to start with actor Jesse Williams' widely praised rant on police brutality and white racism delivered at this year's Black Entertainment Television awards show? To his enthusiastic audience, Williams reeled off lie after lie, all in the name of black "resistance" over the "oppressor" -- meaning anyone he believes benefits from "this invention called whiteness." Time magazine called his discourse "powerful." Where are fact-checkers when the fact-devoid desperately need fact-checking? After all, Williams practically begged to be fact-checked when he said, "What we've been doing is looking at the data and we know that police somehow manage to de-escalate,...
