WATCH: Man With His Arms Up Shot by North Miami Police

A behavioral therapist trying to help his autistic patient was shot by police while lying on the ground with his arms raised in the air. A video recorded on a cell phone, which you can watch above, shows the moments before the shooting in North Miami, Florida.

The victim, Charles Kinsey, who is black, is recovering in the hospital, WSVN-TV reports. The news station obtained the video of the Monday shooting on Wednesday.

Kinsey’s attorney, Harold Napoleon, also provided the full video to the Miami Herald. You can watch it below:



As Iggo loves to say, Yay, police. They're the best.

RNC 2016 Shows Off White Nationalist Tweet

VDARE is interested in preserving America as a "white nation." Why would the GOP and the Trump campaign display one of its tweets during their convention?

A tweet from a white nationalist website managed to careen across the screen on the day Donald Trump formally accepted the nomination.

Across the digital banner around the Quicken Loans Arena at the Republican National Convention, a tweet from the racist VDARE.com displayed during the night's proceedings.

An image of the tweet was captured by Twitter user @EsotericCD. It praised Representative Chris Collins for talking about immigration.


Garry Marshall just passed away

One day after Chachi acted an utter fool on national TV

You can't convince me that Chachi didn't break Garry Marshall's heart

Rest in power, Garry

I'm wondering if Donald Trump Jr. will regale us about his African animal murdering adventures

I'm sitting here watching Tiffany Trump's speech and the first question that comes to mind is...

"Are we supposed to be impressed?"

About now they should have a hologram of Reagan's corpse come on stage

And endorse his boy

While watching this bullshit with the rollcall of the states

it definitely helps when you're drinking.

Apparently, The RNC...

Is all about making ones outrageous delusions, fears and hatred of Hillary Clinton real through shouting nonsense at the top of one's voice.

The terrorists are coming to get us... "ISIS is in all fifty states!" "Isis," meaning Muslim-Americans, Joni Ernst?

This is one of the darkest conventions I've ever seen in my life.

Why I Don't Talk About Race With White People

Racism is so deeply embedded in this country not because of the racist right-wing radicals who practice it openly. It exists because of the silence and hurt feelings of liberal America.

By John Metta / Huffington Post
July 15, 2016

What follows is the text of a “sermon” that I gave as a “congregational reflection” to an all white audience at the Bethel Congregational United Church of Christ on Sunday, June 28th. The sermon was begun with a reading of The Good Samaritan story, and this wonderful quote from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Americanah. Credit for this speech goes to Chaédria LaBouvier, who’s “Why We Left“ inspired me to speak out about racism; to Robin DiAngelo, who’s “White Fragility“ gave me an understanding of the topic; and to Reni Eddo-Lodge who said “Why I’m no longer talking to white people about race“ long before I had the courage to start doing it again.

A couple weeks ago, I was debating what I was going to talk about in this sermon. I told Pastor Kelly Ryan I had great reservations talking about the one topic that I think about every single day.

Then, a terrorist massacred nine innocent people in a church that I went to, in a city that I still think of as home. At that point, I knew that despite any misgivings, I needed to talk about race.

You see, I don’t talk about race with white people. To illustrate why, I’ll tell a story:

It was probably about 15 years ago when a conversation took place between my aunt, who is white and lives in New York State, and my sister, who is black and lives in North Carolina. This conversation can be distilled to a single sentence, said by my black sister:

“The only difference between people in the North and people in the South is that down here, at least people are honest about being racist.”
