Officers Chase, Beat Unarmed Honor Student Half to Death, and then are Acquitted

You’re walking to your grandmother’s house and a group of men jump out of a van and start chasing you.  None of them tell you that they are police officers, and they are not in police cars.  You run away, thinking that you’re being kidnapped and the men beat you within an inch of your life.  Shouldn’t these men be punished for what they did?

Not according to a jury in Pittsburgh.  Three white officers were acquitted after beating a 17-year old honor student, Jordan Miles, so severely that he had to spend weeks in the hospital.  One of the dreadlocks had even been ripped out of his head.  The jury deliberated for five days and the group of five men and three women came back with a not-guilty verdict.  There was only one black person on the jury, creating serious racial tensions and undertones in the entire Pittsburgh community.

Miles was chased because he was a young black male in a high crime neighborhood.   Officers had no other reason for chasing him and beating him that night.

“It’s a good win for us,” said James Wymard, the attorney for Officer David Sisak.

“We said all along once this case was exposed to the light of daylight these allegations would not stand,” said Robert Leight, attorney for another defendant, Officer Richard Ewing.

“There will be a new trial on the most important issue: Was there excessive force?” said Tim O’Brien, one of Miles’ attorneys.

The officers claim that they stopped Miles because he “appeared to be lurking” near a neighbor’s home.  But the woman who owned the home said that she knew him and had no problem with him being there.   They also claimed that a soda bottle in his pocket made them think he had a gun.  They claimed it was Mountain Dew, but Miles says he never drinks Mountain Dew.

Miles was walking a block to visit his grandmother when he was attacked.   The officers, dressed in plain clothes, came up and asked him for money, drugs and a gun.  That’s when the attack took place.

At the time of the incident, Mile was a senior at the Performing Arts School in Pittsburgh and had no criminal record.  He was charged with assaulting police, loitering, prowling at night, resisting arrest and escape.  Miles says he only ran away because he felt he was being robbed.

The charges against Miles were dismissed, but the officers have yet to be punished.  Miles’ attorneys plan to file an appeal.

        I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; the only way to curtail this racial profiling police brutality is to post online the full identities (names, home address) of these serpents. Many black men claim to be hard-rock gangsters, carrying loaded guns and committing crimes, lets see if you’re willing to pay these snakes a visit. Either find something worth living for, or find something worth dying for.

      THESE RACIST BASTARDS AIN’T GONNA CHANGE; IT’S GONNA GET WORSE! FUK MARCHING AND SINGING, IT’S TIME TO DO LIKE MALCOLM X SAID…SEND THEM TO THE CEMETERY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      These pigs are klanners…plain & simple, who hate Black men! Nothing has changed since our forced enslavement and the question should be asked: WHERE IS THIS BASTARD CALLED god?

      This brother didn’t do a goddamn thing, but to go visit his grandmother. This goddamn god shit is outta control too! Did this bastard ‘god’ look out for this innocent brother? I keep telling negroids that this deity called ‘god’ is the caucasoid’s devil. He’s out to destroy, murder and steal from Black people.

      I wish y’all quit talking this ‘god’ shyt because there ain’t no goddamn ‘god’ up in space. The devils are out to get us and they are caucasoids with two eyes, two hands, two feet, arms and legs!!!

        Hey Derrick, I have a question for you. If there is no goddamn GOD as you say, then how can you at the same time believe in the DEVIL? They are opposites and if you believe in the one (DEVIL), then you inordinately believe in the other (GOD). Haj Malik El Shabazz believed in GOD=ALLAH, but understood that the human existence is devoid of one (GOD), and full of the other (DEVIL). Your argument makes perfect sense on the human decadence part, but half truth doesn’t lend itself to the argument that GOD does or doesn’t exist.

        When people have no respect for life and specifically your life, you have the universal right to kill because the blood in not innocent blood. I say set their azzes up, and when they start chasing innocent blood let loose a barrage of lead and let them smell the smoke!

          I don’t beLIEve in a deity called a devil down in the ground! The REAL devils are caucasoids, whom the Ancient Kemetians called ‘typhonians’ or children of set!

          The uncolor called ‘white’ meant DEATH, DESTRUCTION AND THE devil when Black Gods and Goddesses ruled the world!

          Just look how these caucasoid devils treat Black people today! Brother Malcolm was a great man, but he was also BRAINWASHED with the teachings of islam.

          Fard Muhammad was a caucasoid, and the Black muslims looked up to him as a ‘messenger of god’. Now, if negroids beLIEve that the Black Messiah was a caucasoid (they called him jesus), what’s the difference between the xtians caucasoid’s version of a caucasoid jesus, and the Black muslim’s version of a caucasoid messenger of god?

          How can the Black Messiah, who was Black be THE SON of a caucasoid god? If the Black Messiah was Black, then HIS FATHER had to be BLACK, too.

          Caucasoids can ONLY PRODUCE another caucasoid; not a Black Man!!!

          ALL RELIGIONS ARE MAN-MADE!!!

        First off, I do not like cops and think this is 100% wrong and they should be punished for it, but for you to start taking it out on the entire white race or in your racist words, us crackers, is pitiful. I have never called a black person a ni****, but do you know how many times i have been called “cracker”, how is that justified? And for you to ridicule MLK, just shows that you my friend, are the exact replica of this demon devil figure you speak of us “crackers” to be. You should be thanking MLK not spitting on his name. such a shame!

    This is an utter disgrace. How can a jury find these guys not guilty. So what, is it open season on citizens. But when someone takes a shot at a cop, then all hell breaks lose. Not saying that it’s right. But how can we trust the same people that’s suppose to serve and protect us and they are the one’s that we need to be protected from. I don’t know what’s being taught at the police academy, but when citizen’s start taking shots back, then don’t complain. The only thing that policemen and women have over us citizen’s is a badge and a gun. If we cut them, they will bleed. Take away their oxygen and they will die. So, with all that being said. I hope that this young man man makes a full recovery. My prayers are with you and your family.

    As hard as it is to constantly see the abuse of our people time after time again, its something that we are living with in pain and bewonderment everyday. The Congress or Courts isn’t going to change anything if they were it would have been done already. All we have left is faith in God and each other to continue to press forward to do the best we can under the circumstances.
    Even though we have a Black President, that isn’t enough. It’s going to take more lifetimes to change this Country and its outlook of Black people. I doubt if America will ever pay for the crimes against Black people.

        This Racism VIRUS has been with us for four hundred years. The only bright light I see is: This attitude of Whites goes beyond America and how Blacks are treated. That’s why we had “September 11.” In the end, it will be the whole world at large that deals with American Racism and White’s disregard for the humanity of other peoples.

    Only registered voters can sit on juries. As long as we don’t vote and try our best not to do jury duty this will continue to happen.

    We need to deal with this on many levels, but simply voting and doing jury duty when called upon can change the make up of juries and the outcomes of many of the cases of police brutality.

    The key is understanding this quote by one of these cops lawyers: “‘We said all along once this case was exposed to the light of daylight these allegations would not stand,’ said Robert Leight, attorney for another defendant, Officer Richard Ewing.”

    By being “exposed to the light of daylight” he DOES NOT mean anything resembling justice. Their “daylight” is specifically the mostly-white jury they were successfully able to maneuver during the peremptory challenges before trial began.

        Blacks do vote…we are not on the jury because the system used to poll juror’s is manipulated to search for white only…therefore, Black voters are pushed to the bottom of the list…

        OJ’s trial was different because his attorney’s were able to manipulate the system to poll for Blacks first and it still ended up with two whites on the jury…

        Regardless, this needs to stop, but I guess BTK was right…the reason why whites do not get caught or go to jail because they are one of them…meaning they are whites and whites are only looking for blacks to pin crimes on…

        I guess I have to go back to the days of the 1980’s…where we kept it simple, by putting one or two bullets in these cops temple…

    What country does Jordan Miles think he lives in? In 1926 Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson wrote a book, “The Mis-education of the Negro.” Did his parents make sure he read it? This is the price Miles has to pay for living in America. There will be no worldwide campaign for sympathy such as Oak Creek, WI. We continue to confuse presence with acceptance, not our time yet with respect.
    I live in South Alabama and not one word about Wade Page has been uttered by a public official. Had the roles been reversed you would not have been able to shut down the noise.

    The thing I notice is that prosecutors for some reason always seem to allow defense attorneys to get away with murder when it comes to jury selection. Why was there only one black juror. But if I was that one juror, you had better believe there would not have been an acquittal. There may not have been a conviction, but I would have hung that jury until they passed out from no oxygen. What could they possibly have said to make that stupid juror go along with an innocent plea. These cops will get what they deserve though. This is why I don’t care what any white person or black person says. I applaud the BPP new or old, when they come out saying what the hell it is they want to say against these racist ass people. We are living in Part Two of Civil rights. You can close your eyes to it if you want. But when one of your young black male relatives gets murdered of beat to a pulp while being innocent and black, don’t go crying and screaming then. Think and act like you know now…BEFORE THAT HAPPENS. I talk to my young cousins all the time. I tell them unfortunately, hanging out now for you all is over. It no longer ok, to hang out in the streets or on the corner with your friends. Especially, if you are dressed like urban youth. All you need is to be somewhere that no witnesses are and your life could be over. I believe 50% of police everywhere state to state are KKK. I know most of you reading this, think I am overreacting or being overzealous, but I don’t give a damn what you think. I know this to be true. There is incident after incident and it is getting worse. And when these dirty cops get off, their chief has the nerve to gloat about it. Not even a sensitive bone in their racist body. I hate racists and I hate those who turn a blind eye, or who think that it is not that bad even more.

How can they get away with that when they weren’t in uniform and were hiding in the bushes, plus ask him for money, guns and drugs? Anybody would think they were about to be robbed! Are you kidding me? Has the NAACP been notified? What about Al Sharpton? All of them should be suspended without pay until the 2nd trial has taken place.

      I dont think we invited them. We do live in cities and towns, the police have to have a presence in our areas. We pay taxes and we deserve that. The disdain cops have towards blacks and browns is historic. We cant do anything about it.

      In Pittsburgh, the police chief is black, but he still has to defend those white bastards although he MAY know in his heart that they kicked Jordans ass for no reason. PLUS, he knows that he is like OBAMA…he is in charge and the white folks hate it.

        If he was in ‘charge’ he would use his authority to bring justice to the table! This negroid is a paid puppet, like O’Drama!

        Y’all think just because a negroid has a little authority, they can do as they please; no dice! These negroids are puppets and want to keep their jobs. They don’t give a husky fuk about Black people. Now, if that would’ve been a caucasoid boy, who was beaten by negroid pigs, then justice would’ve been served for the caucasoid boy. But, since it was a Black youth, this negroid don’t give a damn!

        Remember, these so-called leaders (I call them FOLLOWERS) still have to bow down to their massa!

        THE ONLY THANG THIS NEGROID IS IN CHARGE OF IS TO KEEP CRACKER PIGS ON THE FORCE TO KILL BLACK MEN!!!!

      Elizabeth,

      You better get a clue before you become a victim of the resistance. Police Brutality is omnipresent in the Black Community. Always has been, and it continues to be. Even a non conscious African American understands this. However, this is also what kicked off the black power movement of the sixties, and you either need to get with the movement or get out of the way. Because your disposition is seen as suspicious and black people aren’t going to wait for you to understand in the heat of the moment. Heed this warning now!!!

    Someone asked how do we fix this? Well the white establishment wants us to never think of ourselves as Africans, the original people, but as people who want to be as white as them or whiter, thus, if we are not dressing and conducting ourselves as they do then we need to be eradicated… Remember, in some States, as a matter of fact in the Americas, in order for a slave to be free, he or she had to become a Christian, or die… To answer the question, we have to come together.. First we must change our way of thinking, that is to say change our crab mentality.. Re-learn to live together as the Chinese, Mexicans, and other minorities do, twenty to thirty in a house or an apartment helping each other, having each other backs etc…

    I’m so tired of reading about how another promising black youth was attacked by the police and again, were not convicted. What information can you possibly get during a trial that looking at the victim doesn’t explain? They beat him within an inch of his life and still they walk? Come on. Why is it so easy for so many people to just turn the other way after such vile criminal activity by the police? It seems that nothing has gotten better for minorities in this country and people wonder why so many minorities are afraid of the police, they are the biggest, legal “gang” around. Sick of it. What can we do to change this?

    Police officers are sworn in and because they are sworn in they are believed by the masses. There are two officers I. The area in which I live that cannot be trusted. Police are human beings and they ho,d grudges and do stupid things until they get caught. What they did to this young man will come back to visit them or their loved ones again one day. Karma is real and it is not as if you have to wait a log time, there is at least one officer I. That group that beat that student that just went along because he was out numbered. It will come back again one day…believe it, one of their children will end up with an African American and that hatefulness will have to be addressed again…..

      Someone said “boycott.” I think that’s the most effective way to say we are fed up with the brutality and disrespect towards black people. Can we just cancel Christmas shopping this year? Maybe pool resources with family, friends or neighbors to invest in things that appreciate in value over time? I think one reason the establishment won’t respect us (or our children) is that they assume we are totally dependent on their businesses and systems and traditions for survival – that no matter what they do, we will keep financing them.

    Hey you guys…I live near Pittsburgh and the nickname for the city is “the Selma, Alabama of the North”.

    Of course the whites are talking all that s%$#: sure he was going to his grandmas at midnight, he shouldnt have fought the police, he was a thug, he’s a liar, all niggers are the same, etc.

    He is a little thicker now than he was is 2010, but Jordan was slight of build and those white cops were twice his size. It is like folks think Black folks are stupid…like who would fight against those odds? Plus they talk as though he beat HIMSELF up to look like he did ( the photo) I just went to war on some local site with the white folks talking shit like, “Will “they” be rioting tonight”, etc.

    Unfortunately, in Pittsburgh, the Black youth are too busy killing each other. Many have no clue about what is going on in the world or even their city. I use my 19 yr old daughter as a barometer. She says when she mentioned the verdict to some of the “ballers” she knows, they had blank looks on their faces. The youth are too busy trying to be gangsters to think of police brutality, Jordan Miles, the upcoming election…anything.

    I believe that Whites have run over us so long that they thick we are a non-factor. There needs to be a revolution. We need to organize and get some real results. This whole sitution we re in is just straight up bullshit: giving Black men , women, and kids criminal records so we cannot get jobs to care for our families. All a plan to anialate the race. Ane what about repartions which would take a lot of Black families out of poverty ( and not with giving us a measley couple hundred dollars either)

    PLEASE WAKE UP BLACK FOLKS. TAKE A STAND.
    will Blacks keep letting whites do whatever to us???

The only thing I know that commands respect is fear, they have nothing to fear from us. That cop that who shot the white supremacist domestic terroist, not even the media can go near his home there are so many cops there protecting him. they fear for his life. When a cop shoots a black man they get put on a long paid leave ( awarded a vacation). So what I have learned living in america, is you dont ask for anything or make any demands uless you have a; OR ELSE…..

Beaten and suspected of carrying a weapon. Find a soft drink container in his pocket instead of a gun. Only two things different here … the White men left their Black victim alive instead of shooting him and the Skittles are missing from the other pocket. Why does this sound like more racist bullshit? Maybe because it IS more racist bullshit!

    You only have to look back less than a week to know KKK/Nazi types are alive and well in Amerika …Wisconsin with a group of Sikhs worshipping peacefully in their temple until a White supremist bursts in on them with an automatic weapon. We need to DO something about these bigots. NOW.

    The reality is Jordan Miles is blessed to be alive.

    An updated edition of the Report on Extrajudicial Killings of Black People reveals that every 36 hours (in 2012) a Black Person is killed by the police a much smaller number of security guards and self-appointed vigilantes in the United States.

    Watkins, do you want to start a race riot? Do you feel we stand a better chance against soldiers than cops? Who determines the extent of the beating, you? Videos without sound give a distorted picture. I’ve told you this before. You should be demanding a full investigation, instead of provoking hateful responses to your posts. As a nation, we need healing, not more provocation and divisiveness. You are beginning to remind me of H. Rap Brown and Stokely Carmichael of the sixties.Their biggest accomplishment was to get Nixon elected, running on a LAW AND ORDER platform.

    People, Black People! Please wake up and know what is taking place. Your tea party is in the hunt for an uprising of the worst kind and if we are not ready, which we are’nt then we the Black People who have the Heart to do this thing will be on the short end of it. These folks have been trying to provoke us for the last 15 to 20 years by killing our Brothers young and old and in doing so, are hoping for the day that some of us will make that fatal mistake of firing back! Don’t do it unless you know it will be a concenstrated effort across the nation. No Plan no Gain. You should reconize what is happening around the country at an alarming rate, our Brothers are being slaughtered at all age levels either by the police who as we see are being aquitted almost every time they go to trial or we are killing each other just as fast over mindless shit! So in all reality, its a lose lose situation. We need to wake and stand up and say enough is enough among ourselves then we can stand against the wrongs that these folks in police uniforms are doing to us with no regard. Have you seen the black police shoot or beat a white person! Never will! Cause they have our Black officers trained and mines cleansed. “They” being the whites who are in charge of the “Just Them”, policing system. Take a look at the court system and see who gets the most for the least offense.
    Also, our young Brotherrs need to wake up and pull up their phants and get stronger mentaly. Hold onto education rather than your nut sack and a bag of weed or dope. This only sends the wrong message and cancels anything that may help in the long run.Then we can stand up and say we have had enough. Start getting in shape physically and mentaly to do battle if and when necessary!

    let us gather ourselves and be mindful that we are being monitored and whenever we unite for a cause that protects or defends or up lift black people the “head” is shot down or otherwise eliminated. this is not the place to say the things we say , but the truth needs an arena… and this is the TRUTH…this countries history is one of protection…white people against indians,chinese,blacks, and or any other race that posed a threat because of their unity and strong ties to each other…this violence will not stop and dont expect it to..! they want to protect themselves and they do it with violence. lets get real here … they protected the colleges with national guards to stop us from higher education and then call us “DUMB”…. they wont hire us and lay us off first and fire us .. then call us “LAZY” and when we have no choice but to walk the streets..they say we’re stealing and “KILL” us.. its all game.. now, all the black officers on all the police across the country be mind full ,this is squarely in your lap and you will be held fully responsible and sought after first when it comes to ahead….your heads we roll first, either by BLACK people or white people , so stand up ..man up for kind… because they are doing these things to your people and that like doing it to you and your supporting it… we expect you to do your part and we dont care what part of the country it is, do your part !

    here’s the other part, most of time and in most ocassions the people they target are of low income..therefore they need our help. we dont have resources ourselves, but we do have the “media” . we have and we know people that work for media ,weather it be radio or tv stations, we have policto action folks, that are against these brutal attacks, we must become whistle blowers, reporters ,we must make that these things public as soon as they happen and get it on the mass media as quickly as possible. so EVERYONE call their local radio station and local tv station and ask them to cover the story….now at this point we will meet resistance because they are part of the stigma problem…but we continue until they air the news that innocent BLACK are being beaten and killed at the hands of RACIST cops who are paid with our dollars to protect BLACK people.. they will cover black on black crime, they will cover gabby douglas hair issues, or tiger woods being out of control sexually…so we must pressure them to cover it when it happens….it has to come from “US” … al sharpton, jesse jackson, and the rest are only waiting for media coverage themselves…we must do it… internet savy folks and media minded folks….someone contact tavis smiley,ebony and essence magzine , ALL the hip-hop publications because they are the ones most likely attacked. we need watch dog groups everywhere all the time…. in today society “the info age” we must unite and can unite in such away that we can shape public opinion, as did a prsidentail canidate named obama …. from the ground up…we will use this technology called the internet…. case in point … i need someone from pittsburgh ,pa. to comment on this post… we have a world , we can fight from right HERE…prove me right and comment on this post pittsburgh…

    On March 13, 2012, I was asked to go outside of Nicks Bar in Berkeley, California to talk to the cops on Martin Luther King Blvd. The cop asked me, “What are you doing here?” I did not reply. He grabbed my arm and slammed me into a brick wall, breaking my eye-glasses, and knocking me out cold on the sidewalk. I was taken to Alta Bates Hospital in Berkeley. The next morning the nurse walks in and told me to get up and get out and check myself into a mental ward. I sustained a split eye-brow and busted lip; walked around with a concussion for three months.

    I went to legal aid. I tried to find lawyers from the Bay Area who would sue the Berkeley Police Department for police violence. Nothing was done. They drive pass my apartment snickering and profiling me on foot.

    I learnt that this kind of violent behavior is happening all across the land – profiling and police brutality. California has a history of accosting blacks on the streets. As a 56 year old African American female, I finally understood the perverted act behind “lynchings”. Never did I dream that I could be lynched the same as our ancestors who were slaves.

    Mr. Miles is another victim of a lynching mob under the guise of police brutality suffered by our ancestors. God heal is body, mind, and soul.

    This may have been racially motivated, but people need to wake up and stop thinking only about race. These gang members with badges are doing this shit to people all over the country of all colors and persuasions. Are black people getting this shit more than others? Probably, but the truth is that cops have started treating everyone who is NOT a cop like they are stupid slaves or animals needing to be kept in line.

    It’s not white against black anymore, it’s the cops and the politicians against us all. This shit will not stop until there are direct and dire consequences for cops who do these things and those consequences will never be achieved through the court system. Remember that the prosecutors, judges, and jurors are all paid by the same governments that pay these cops. You think they have YOUR best interest at heart?? Oh and don’t think that the feds coming in will help anything either. They will only make it worse.

    Look at Anaheim, California. Most of those people were Hispanic and white and the cops unleashed all kinds of hell on them just for protesting the execution of a man in handcuffs. The problem is that those people just went out and protested and had no way to defend themselves when the cops attacked. Protesting doesn’t work anymore because the cops don’t care. They will bring out the heavy equipment and herd the protestors into vans or shoot them with tear gas and rubber bullets. Hell, they turned the dogs loose on women and children. That’s what you get if you aren’t willing to defend yourself.

    People need to come together and defend themselves against the gangsters with badges or else this is only going to get worse. It’s time that the people stop shooting and fighting each other and start focusing on the real criminals before it is too late. Going on murderous rampages or starting riots against cops is not the thing to do, but defending yourselves from cops who aggress against you when you have harmed no one is the right thing to do.

Do you think we have it made and don’t have run-ins like this? Seriously??? Check youtube for police brutality videos. There’s just as many of us getting our faces kicked in as you guys. FACT. It ain’t just blacks and non-whites anymore. The truth is, the government and the police are absolutely out of control. Be mad at whites if you want… that ain’t going to get you anywhere. Every tax paying American citizen is in the same boat now. It’ll get far worse before it gets better. Do something about it, but focus your efforts on the REAL problem – an out of control government.

    What African Americans are currently experiencing in 2012 America is the loss of legal power to deal with incident like this around the nation. Ronald Reagan conspired with Rev. Ben Hooks to SEPARATE the NAACP organization from the LEGAL and DEFENSE FUND three decades ago. Back in the day when these two organizations had a STRONG working relationship they were able to take communities with racially abusive police to court and stop these practices COLD! But now this legal muscle no longer works and the scourge of racist brutality has once again started to flower here in America.

    Black folks have to learn that the only way to stop these outrageous attacks is to HIT THESE RACIST COMMUNITIES IN THE POCKETBOOK by using civil suits to make them pay for our PAIN and SUFFERING through the courts. You can march until you wear out a pair of new shoes and you will likely get “lip service” from the elected officials in that town or city. But let them get HIT with a 1 to 2 million dollar court decision and then you will see how quickly things change in police procedures. Until black folks learn this lesson, we will continue to bear more and more pain and suffering and death at the hands of these people who value all African Americans as being worth less than dirt.

    This is exactly why I believe in video taping and livestreaming (so the pigs cant confiscate the evidence of their crimes). Remember the last time some shit like this happened and someone had video evidence? Rodney King/Los Angeles riots. 92. Still in a room without a view. Nothing has changed except that people have become complacent and compliant. Gleefully singing, playing drums, chantin “I got so angry, I made a sign”. Fuck that. Publish names, post pictures. Police are not here to protect OR serve us. They serve only to protect, preserve and maintain the structures that give them power. And whos paying for it?

    While this is absolutely ridiculous I think there is a lot of misdirected hostility in these comments. The problem with police brutality extends far beyond the African American community. It is ALL OF OUR PROBLEM! White people are not exempt because of the color of their skin, nor are Latinos or Asians. This is an AMERICAN problem, not a race problem. The people running the show are purposely creating rifts in all communities to get us all to blame each other instead of them. If you cant see that there is a hostile take over going on in the former of a militarized police state you’re hopeless. I for one would stand up next to any of you to fight this oppression and tyranny as a white man. As a matter of fact I have on many occasions. Would you do the same? Your enemy isn’t white people. Your enemy is our government! The same enemy I have.

    Has anyone else noticed, but it seems to me that every time I read news lately, another black man is beaten or shot for no reason. What the heck is going on? I could use many bad words right now and cuss out the police, but I will not reduce myself to their level of ignorance. One thing; If we the people do not unite and take a stand together, as one whole identity, we will never overcome the oppressiveness powers that are, and we will forever be under their authority. It is time. If it is happening to the Black population, it can happen to the Latinas and Latinos, the Asians, Arabs, Socialists, Hindus, and yes maybe even one day to the White community. HA!

    I believe that the answer is simple, the Lord Jesus Christ brought us out of Africa, He brought us out of chattel slavery,During the sixties, He brought us out from under the power of RACISM. Because God’s people cried out to Him and victories happened, our lives changed for our good. It is time now, for this generation of black men and women that are being murdered, beat, and incarcerated in frightening numbers, to go back to the one who said “If my people which are called by my name would humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, THEN will I heard from heaven, forgive their sins, and HEAL THEIR LAND. The only answer is a spiritual one, and it is only found in turning back to the Lord Jesus Christ for help and for LIFE

    Omg! To put things in perspective. Being mind
    F***ed is not black or white. The cops that are out there
    Committing these heinous offenses and crimes
    Against black civilians are as mind f***ed as minority
    Criminals that return to situations that got them locked up
    For hyperthetically say a 10 year bid.

    Religion, media, history records are all apart of what
    Is mind f***ing everyone…..black and white.
    I am grieved for what happened to the young Brotha, Yosef Hawkins, Sean Bell, Hurricane Katrina, Amadou Diallo,
    Silly ass OJ, and countless others. The breaking of the
    Spirit, the intimidation of ones (minority prospects).

    Ultimately, the working class white community is reacting
    To the rising working class black and Latino communities.
    The longer they keep fear in the hearts of these the longer
    The gain leverage to exploit these.

    The reality is their mindf***ed reality is being altered,
    As there nearly second class placement is threatened by the
    Uprising of human and civil rights that are against their best
    Interest, forging through anyway.

    Cops are not apart of that 2%, and that 2% wouldn’t hesitate
    To drop them in a bucket if it served their purpose.
    What it take is exposure of ignorance in the part of both.
    The Re-establishing We the people/ By the people. This incorporates the expanded American community. White is right,
    White is best, white directs and is the boss! The days are gone,
    And the reality is this was never morally correct. Nevertheless,
    It must be dealt with moving forward.

    In every community even around the world,
    There are designated suffers. Black has been
    The American designated suffers. They are easy
    They are at large quite ignorant of the law.
    Ignorant of their own collective commitment to
    The livelihood of the black community at large.

    Without highlighting anyone, it is rather relevant to
    Examine cultures who have not been upwardly mobile
    With the American financial strata and examine what
    It took for them to climb.

    Jewish communities, othodox and other sects—-
    Asian xommunities—–
    East Indians——
    They all have in common—-
    1. There is a deeper community obligation beyond
    The one—the self. Loyalty
    2. They don’t require a stamp of approval to do
    What is beneficial to the collective body.
    3. They learned the system.
    4. They can see unobjective information,
    Scrutinize it, dissect it, create contingency plans
    And finally unobjectively look within to find breeches.

    Black people have to go To work, to pay the bills,
    To maintain social identity, to feel important….
    Those that are able refuse or don’t have time to
    Commit to the collective body.
    Black people need( for comic relief) the cracker stamp
    Of approval before other black people will listen to them.
    Black people suffer miss placed narcissism, although relative
    To a need to create self-esteem. Tho it is negative, it is a
    Mechanism for defense.

    These things continue to allow black people collectively to
    Be exploited!!!! Sad! What are we gonna do?
