    FULL TITLE: Missouri police prepare for riots as they await grand jury decision over whether to charge officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown Missouri police have been brushing up on constitutional rights and stocking up on riot gear to prepare for a grand jury's decision about whether to charge a white police officer who fatally shot a black 18-year-old in suburban St. Louis. The preparations are aimed at avoiding a renewed outbreak of violence during the potentially large demonstrations that could follow an announcement of whether Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson will face a criminal trial...

    Reuters ^ | October 24, 2014 | BY CAREY GILLAM
    Police in Ferguson, Missouri, committed human rights abuses as they sought to quell mostly peaceful protests that erupted after an officer killed an unarmed black teenager, an international human rights organization said in a report released on Friday. The Amnesty International report said law enforcement officers should be investigated by U.S. authorities for the abuses, which occurred during weeks of racially charged protests that erupted after white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown, 18, on Aug. 9. The use by law enforcement of rubber bullets, tear gas and heavy military equipment and restrictions placed on peaceful...

    Democrats are losing -- and they know it -- so things are getting awfully ugly out there. A New York Times story over the weekend previewed the onslaught of overt political race-baiting that has begun to sweep across the country.  Entitled, "Black Vote Seen as Last Hope for Democrats to Hold Senate," the piece describes the party's desperate measures: The confidential memo from a former pollster for President Obama contained a blunt warning for Democrats. Written this month with an eye toward Election Day, it predicted “crushing Democratic losses across the country” if the party did not do more to get black voters...

    A mural was painted over Monday afternoon after Trenton police expressed concern that the painting, depicting Michael Brown, a Ferguson, Mo., teen who was fatally shot by police in August, sent the wrong message about community and police relations. The painting depicted Browns face with the caption Sagging pants is not probable cause. Will "Kasso" Condry, the artist behind the mural, said he wanted to start a conversation about racial profiling. The Trenton Downtown Association elected to remove the image after hearing concern from police officers that the mural sends a negative message about the relationship between police and...

    The Rev. Jesse Jackson and a Dallas County commissioner have accused a Texas hospital of racism in the death of Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan.

"As followers of Jesus, we are called to work for the day when those with privilege, most often white people, have greater access to better medical care than those whom Jesus calls 'the least of our sisters and brothers.'"...

    The U.S. Department of Justice will conduct a civil-rights investigation of the Ferguson, Mo., police department, not looking further into the shooting of Michael Brown, who was killed by a Ferguson police officer earlier this summer, but at the departments pattern of conduct over the years. Federal law-enforcement officers have already been in the area for weeks to conduct a civil-rights investigation of the Brown, which would determine whether the federal government will bring civil-rights charges.

    Racism and suffering are powerful tools in the hands of talented opportunists. With a mastery of duplicity, equivocation and guided bitterness, the result is a perfect crusade. The deadly confrontation in Ferguson, Mo., between Michael Brown and Officer Darren Wilson has been a textbook case. To their great credit, Michael Browns parents and Darren Wilson's supporters have navigated their suffering with great dignity. For the left, Ferguson is about winning and conquering the present legal system. It is not about evidence, guilt or innocence. It is simply about power, control and reversed racism. Led by Rep. Elijah Cummings, the Congressional...

In the immediate aftermath of Brown, though unarmed, being shot multiple times after being stopped while walking in the middle of the street, the ballad being played in some quarters went like this: we dont know all the facts so we shouldnt rush to judgment. But, once the Ferguson police released the video of Michael Brown purportedly snatching a box of cigars from the convenience store and intimidating its clerk, that advice...

    A public elementary school principal in Portland, Ore. has declared that eating or talking about peanut butter sandwiches is probably racist. She has also instituted a separate-but-unequal drum class for minority students only. Verenice Gutierrez, the principal at Harvey Scott K-8 School, discussed her bizarre brand of logic in an interview with the Portland Tribune. What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches? Gutierrez asked. Another way would be to say: Americans eat peanut butter and jelly, do you have anything like that? Let them tell you. Maybe they eat torta. Or pita. Harvey Scott K-8 also...

    A Tennessee man who was accused of using a racial slur on a receipt at a Red Lobster restaurant last year is suing the restaurant chain and the waitress who cashed in on the incident after she posted a copy of the receipt on the Internet. Devin Barnes, 21, claims he never wrote the racial slur on the receipt, and that the negative attention he received as a result of the way Toni Christina Jenkins - the waitress who claims to have received the slur - publicized the incident is slanderous. In Barnes' suit, filed in Williamson County Circuit Court,...

[] Holder noted that in some schools districts, significant divisions persist and segregation has reoccurred, including through discipline policies that affect black males more than whites.

    Secretary of Education Arne Duncan on Monday will host an Internet discussion aimed at uncovering why young black and Hispanic men are less successful in the job market and in school, and what causes encounters between them and law enforcement. The discussion is part of President Barack Obamas My Brothers Keeper initiative, which the administration announced in February. That initiative created a task force including Duncan as education secretary, and is meant to develop proposals to enhance positive outcomes and eliminate or reduce negative ones for young black and Hispanic men. In his February announcement, Obama said many groups have...

    This week, the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers was not the only person exposed as a racist. U.S. Congressman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) qualified for his racism card this week when he stated on a New Nation of Islam radio show that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is an Uncle Tom. He reiterated the incendiary charge in an interview with CNN. Thompson claimed that it is fine to use the insulting term since he is black. It is similar to the debate regarding the N word as some believe it is only a problem when white people use the term,...

    I have wondered about Beck for a while, but loved his exposure of the communist network in the US. Since he left FOX...he seems to have changed...and the immediate disregard to the Bundy situation really made me sick. Beck didn't even give the guy the benefit of the doubt and touted the NYT version. I know he has risen to fame since 2001, ghost written several books, had rallies, etc....but to have a network, now? A base in NY....a major website (so buggy and full of cookies it puts me off). Does anyone else find this strange? And claims to...

    Have you watched the full video of Cliven Bundy being racist? The New York Times took the boring parts out so it cut right to the chase, but what he had to say was still disgusting. The fact that some of you can still support him and say that he was set up does 2 things for me: 1 It speaks to your lack of intelligence 2 It also makes you look like a racist. Im just wondering how what he said wasnt racist? Rather than saying that African Americans are held more in slavery today by government...

    Campus Reform on Tuesday reported that Brent Terry, professor at Eastern Connecticut State University who teaches creative writing, told his class that a 2014 GOP victory in the Senate will turn America into a very different kind of country and that colleges will start closing up. A current student, who disagreed with the Terry, who according to Campus Reform, wants to remain anonymous recorded the audio of Terrys rant against Republicans accusing Republicans that they will not and do not want blacks, Latinos, old and young people to vote and Terry incorrectly stated that it is because they are all...
