xPost from AA: Imperfect Accusers: A sad example of bias against African American Rape Victims

http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-34791191

The trial of Daniel Holtzclaw, a police officer accused of sexually assaulting more than a dozen poor, black women, has failed thus far to make a large impact on the national stage. Now one local group of activists is determined to fill the void.

A little over a year ago, after multiple felony sexual battery and rape charges were filed against former Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw, the story made national headlines.

The allegations were shocking - the uniformed officer allegedly sexually assaulted multiple women after stopping them in the course of his duties, targeting ones from a poorer, predominantly African-American part of the city. Over the course of the investigation, the number of accusers grew to 13. Holtzclaw currently faces 36 charges, including felony sexual battery, rape, forcible oral sodomy and stalking.

He was fired from the force in January.

84 days until Iowa. On this day in 2007 Obama had pulled even in Iowa. Hillary leads today by 24

Also, Obama had much more money than Bernie does now comparatively, he had better name recognition and he had the support of a lot of members of the party, the so-called super delegates. Obama had in his campaign a lot of the folks who really understand how the Iowa caucuses work. If you don't have those folks, its very hard to compete in Iowa. Howard Dean found that out. The Iowa caucuses are a science and an art and they take many years to understand and a lot of connections in the state.

Does anyone here know more on the backdrop of this story regarding Vermont dumping nuclear

waste in Texas? http://archives.texasobserver.org/issue/1998/09/11#page=11

"African Americans for Hillary" headed by Rep. John Lewis, is the event BLM protested.

The crowd that shouted them down was overwhelmingly African American as one might surmise by the name of the event.

Hillary was introduced by the person who launched African Americans for Hillary, Representative John Lewis.

Hillary did not get huffy or throw a tantrum or try to ignore their issues. In fact, at the event, she was speaking to the exact issues BLM is about.

That's why it is different from the situation with Sanders a few months ago. Also, you won't see the disrespect of BLM on Twitter or the internet you saw from Sanders supporters.
