Came a callin'


Here are 23 ways that you can be killed in America, if you're black...

Excuse me, Stewardess, I speak jive...

This Bernie voter is glad that we're at this point now where I had always expected us to be...


Sure the process was messy, but I had faith in it. I still do.

The path is changed, so that our main priority is to keep the White House Democratic, give the Congress a Democratic majority and drive the country in more a progressive direction for all.

We can do that if everyone in our team works together for common goals.

I know that it can be done, what we need to do is both listen to ourselves, and push back against the Republicans, who have no ones best interests at heart except their own through proven failed policies.

This is our apple to bite and share... Take a bite!

The Black American Experience in one quick chart

Police Arrest Man Who Posted Video of Alton Sterling’s Death

Nathan Wellman | July 10, 2016

The man who was instrumental to making the first released recording of the Alton Sterling shooting go viral was arrested less than 24 hours later on charges of “assault and battery,” a move that he says was an act of police retaliation, according to a report by Carlos Miller with Photography Is Not a Crime (PINAC).

Alton Sterling’s death was still only a local controversy before Chris LeDay shared the video of the killing to his roughly 13,000 Instagram followers, 6,00o Twitter followers, and 2,000 Facebook friends. The video was then shared thousands of times, including by New York Daily News writer and Black Lives Matter supporter Shaun King, who shared it less than an hour after LeDay’s post.

“I wanted everybody to see this video,” LeDay told PINAC. “I wanted it to go viral. The police were already saying their body cams fell off and I wanted to show there was video of the shooting.”

The very next day, while trying to get through a security checkpoint to go to his job as an aerospace ground equipment technician at Dobbins Air Reserve Base, LeDay was surrounded and detained by ten military police officers, some of whom carried M-16 rifles.


Life imitating art...

The very first "Robocop" movie, a futuristic saga, whose title character routinely killed alleged criminals was released in 1987, after being shot on location Dallas, Texas, which was depicted as Detroit.

Twenty-nine years later marks the very first time in which an alleged gunman was blown up by a remotely driven robotic cop, delivering an explosive device, also in Dallas, Texas.

Just something to think about.

The rare black "Crazed Lone Gunman"

Needless to say, the white supremacists, the police misconduct apologists and the NRA will all have a field day.

Black lives are in even more danger today.

You're such a kidder, Thom...
