    The girlfriend of Antonio Martin says she hasn’t been able to sleep since a police officer fatally shot her boyfriend, a black male teenager, at a gas station in Berkeley, Missouri on Tuesday. Keanna Brown, 19, revisited the site of the killing on Wednesday, where she expressed her grief in an outcry of mourning. “He didn’t deserve to die,” Brown told The Huffington Post outside the Mobil gas station where Martin was shot. “He was so scared, I’m telling you, he was so scared. He looked at me like ‘Baby, please jump in between and say something to save me.’”

    “Police said Johnson placed a drive-thru order early Thursday, received his food and pulled away. He drove back through the drive-thru, complained about the missing cheeseburger and the manager asked him to park and said he would bring out the missing sandwich.” But Johnson had another idea. He parked his car, and proceeded to walk into the McDonald’s with a pistol, demanding his order be fixed.

    In a CUNY newspaper editorial written earlier this month, the “Advocate’s” Editor-in-Chief called for violent protests against those opposed to “justice” for Michael Brown and others. The piece, called “In Support of Violence,” contains several chilling passages. “The time for peace has passed, indeed it never existed in this country,” the editorial explains. “It doesn’t matter if Brown robbed a convenience store, or even if he assaulted Wilson. What matters is that the case highlights the depths to which the capitalist state and its police forces will protect their own and attempt to stifle any sort of dissent.” The editorial...

    Antonio Martin, an African American teen, pulled out a gun and tried to murder a police officer. In self defense, the officer shot Martin. Martin was killed. Yet, despite these crystal-clear facts, new protests are erupting in the Ferguson and St. Louis area. The police even quickly released video, showing that Martin unmistakably raised a gun to shoot at the officer. Sergeant Brian Schellman of the St. Louis police department said what happened was straight forward: “Fearing for his life, the Berkeley Officer fired several shots, striking the subject, fatally wounding him.” But apparently facts aren’t good enough for Ferguson...

According to Ecclesiastes, “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose.” For me, today, that means a time to seek justice and a time to mourn the dead. The recent brutal murder of two Brooklyn police officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, is a national tragedy that should inspire nationwide mourning. Both my grandfather and father were...

    We are way past playing games of gotcha. The Brooklyn police slaughter is just another example of how black racial hostility is now an everyday fact of life. Part of the national fabric. So much so that no one even bothers to hide it. Not anymore.

In Philadelphia, a paramedic said the same thing but took it one step further: He posted a picture...

    A divergence in African American culture has made it easy for people to categorize "good" and "bad" blacks separately—and that's a huge problem My parents sent me to an all-white elementary school when I was 4.
