Racism in Trump's America

Recommended Posts

Lost her job over the incident, she offered an apology stating she over reacted. You think? :blink:

Fortunately the police did not run in and overreact and kill another innocent unarmed black man.

Then I guess an apology wouldn't have been any good. And she only offered the apology because it was filmed and she was caught.

But there's another twist to the story. They're several twists to the story.

Chris Cooper is The black man that she victimized.

He turns out to be a bird watcher who is a former president of the Harvard Ornithological Club and on the New York Audubon Society  Board.  So he had every right, to ask her to properly leash her dog in this area of the park.

 But, if that's not enough, he is a former writer and editor of Marvel Comics-- who introduced the gay superheroes.

But there's still another twist to the story. The white woman in question, Amy Cooper, refused to put her dog on a leash despite the request of the Avid birdwatcher and the signs demanding that all dogs be leashed in this area of Central Park.

If you watch the video, you can see that while she's making the bogus call to 911, she is also dragging her dog by the collar--nearly choking the cocker spaniel.

Amy Cooper's Behavior here cost her to have to voluntarily relinquish the dog to the cocker spaniel rescue organization where she originally acquired the dog. Whether or not she gets the dog back will be up, of course, to this organization.

So the bottom line for Amy Cooper on that day was:

Lying about a black man and trying to get him--

not just in trouble with the police but maybe murdered--

did not result in the way that she imagined that it would.

Instead she lost her job and her dog. Plus there were calls for her to be banned from Central Park forever.

But I think anyone who does bogus 9-1-1 calls tying up the emergency number and wasting the time of the police should be called to account for it by our laws.

Yeah sure, you're right--

she did apologize for it.

Black 'DoorDash' delivery man has gun drawn on him: police report

Mesa, AZ       "..........Local police said in a report obtained by CNN that the man, Valentino Tejada, is facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct involving a weapon after they said he pulled a gun on the driver, Dimitri Mills. 

Mills told CNN in an interview on Wednesday that the man had drawn a gun on him shortly after he exited his car to make a delivery this past Sunday.

“I knocked on the customer's door and let her know that her order was outside and that we need help because a guy had pulled a gun out on me,” he told the network.

In footage of the moment, Mills and a person recording the incident from inside his car could be heard telling the man that they worked for DoorDash and were making a delivery........

after Mills delivers the food, Mills could be seen standing outside his car saying he’s waiting for police as the other man also waits outside the complex with what appears to be a gun in hand.

“I’m waiting for the police,” Mills is heard saying.

“‘Cause you’re the law, right?” the other man could be heard responding. “You’re the government. You get to dictate.”

“You’re not the law,” Mills tells the man.

“Yes, I am,” he tells Mills.........

Resurfaced Video Shows George Floyd Pleading for an End to Gun Violence and 'Kids Getting Killed'

 

A video of George Floyd encouraging a "lost" younger generation to end gun violence has emerged online in the days after his death.

"You youngsters are just going around, busting guns in crowds. Kids are getting killed," Floyd said to the camera. "It's clearly the generation after us, man, that's so lost."

In the resurfaced video, Floyd also said he was shocked when he heard another adult condone gun violence. He added that half the young people using guns "go home and their knees shaking at night, but they don't show it to nobody because they aren't tough then.".......

As polite sympathy turns to cynical outrage + Nixon-esque insults, and anxious protest is dismissed as mindless anarchy, we cannot let our eyes be turned away from the dead, murdered bodies that brought us here. Again. #GeorgeFloyd #AuhmadArbery #BreonaTaylor.
 
Rage, hopelessness and a ragged, unrelieved pain on display in Minneapolis has fearsome echoes in Louisville, Brunswick and a hundred American cities. Their deaths are symptomatic of a broken system that promises justice but fails to deliver.
 
Those entrusted with the gravest authority must be held to the highest standard of accountability. Law enforcement, district attorneys, mayors, attorneys general, judges, legislators and governors must be held responsible - and their actions will be on the ballot in November. ............

So Abrams wants voters to vote against Dem politicians and vote GOP?   Most of the DA, and mayors and Police chiefs \ Sheriffs  (if they are partisan positions like  in L.A. County)  in the areas with the most police abuse against blacks are held by Dems.       Abrams can't be talking about the Dem primary since she mentions November.     Therefore the only way to hold these pols accountable in November would be to vote GOP  (which of course is insane advise).

Why vote? Because we get the leadership we demand. The justice we demand. We march in the streets, but we must also march on ballot boxes. They fear our participation, spending millions to silence & suppress us. They won’t see us coming, but they will hear us when we arrive.

Clearly Abrams means GOP when she says 'they' but she would be wise by spelling that out since clearly blacks are NOT getting the 'leadership' they 'demand' from Dems but instead decades of pandering.      To me a better message would have been:     even though there have been Dem politicians that have let our community down,   the Dem party supports our community a lot more than the GOP.    A lot more!     So this November get out and vote for Dem candidates.     After the election we will find ways to hold them accountable.

After watching and listening to Trevor Noah's intelligent and articulate assessment of this whole thing here...

...I say change the damn Constitution to allow the non-native born to be President!

Now THIS guy gets it, and as compared to that fat-**** and fat-headed joke of a President we're presently stuck with.

Btw, HERE'S what I'm now hoping for...well, besides that whole "Trevor Noah for President" thing...

That every person who felt outraged enough about this latest example of overt racism and who rioted, will STILL be outraged enough to go cast a freakin' vote come November and help get that aforementioned fat-**** and fat-headed joke of freakin' President thrown out of office and right on his fat ****!

(...yep, that's what I'm hopin' for)

I guess you have to say, trump is what he is.

Princess, could you please show me the exact statement from Trump in video "Donald Trump mocks ,I can't breathe", so I can see if it is in context to your implication. 
Remember in 2014 the death of Eric Garner,
 
If the cop who clearly murders a man on camera is the image of a 'good' cop, you have to wonder what a 'bad' cop looks like. Investigations are a joke. We know what the end result will be. The courts have made it abundantly clear that they will NOT give you justice. Cops have made it abundantly clear that they are unable to understand the loss of your spouses, your friends, your siblings, your children. "Assassinated!?" Christopher Dorner was assassinated. Police put out a bounty on him, hunted him with a US drone, and then burned him alive on national television. But I guess it's only an "assassination" when it's a murder NOT sanctioned by the police. "Devoted their lives to protecting all of us!?" Who exactly feels safe in an encounter with the police? Police talk about how dangerous their job is but everyone knows that in any encounter with the police, the one most at risk of being killed is NOT the police! "When a police officer is murdered, it tears at the fabric of our society!?" No, what tears at the fabric of society are the +1000 American citizens killed by cops every year whose families never get justice. Michael Brown and Eric Garner are exhibit A.

NEW: Following an independent autopsy commissioned by the family of George Floyd, Floyd's death was due to "homicide caused by asphyxia due to neck and back compression," according to a statement from the family's attorney.
 
The autopsy contradicts preliminary findings from the Hennepin County medical examiner, who found “no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxiation or strangulation."

BIG.
 
Hennepin County autopsy report found heart disease, hypertension & "potential intoxicants" contributed to George Floyd’s death.
 
Dr. Baden says no underlying health problems contributed. It was compression of neck & back. "He couldn't breathe and that is homicidal."

1 murder can lead to another crime--

But there's probably a lot of experience in doing this sort of thing--

Probably there are some people who  don't see  criminality  or personal responsibility for it because  they may be doing it on a regular basis so that it seems like just  normal or average activity.

This data reveals the tactic used by Minneapolis police against #GeorgeFloyd was not an isolated incident, but is systematic. His death being captured on video may have been isolated but being choked unconsciously sure isn’t!

 Apparently these people have gotten away with murder before.

It took a 17 year -old high school girl to have the courage to record this one particular murder from her cell phone

to start an International protest movement

demanding the end of the American police 

being the judge, jury and executioner

for so many black Americans who  have been murdered, while in police custody in the United States of America.

Fox guest Bernie Kerik: “I don't know what's going on, and who's behind it. I have an idea — George Soros, for one”

As if the current volatile situation in America is not infected enough with racism--

Fox News tries to inject

 anti-Semitism into the mix with another George Soros conspiracy nonsense.

Let's not forget  that --

It was just such a thing, that got all of those Jewish people murdered in that Pittsburgh synagogue.

This kind of cable broadcast is not only racist, it's also dangerous to the well-being and lives of Americans.

Lies like these can get people killed.

trump says antifa is doing this looting and burning.

Local authorities judge that it's white people all right and they think they're white supremacists.

But it's true, that extremist groups like neo-nazis do take advantage of volatile situations.
