NAACP With Their Own Blind Eye, Says that Donald Sterling’s Lifetime NBA Ban Is Not Enough … This Coming from the Folks Who Were Set to Give Clippers Owner Another ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’
THE NAACP WAS FOR GIVING A LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD TO DONALD STERLING, BEFORE THEY WERE AGAINST IT.
The NAACP says that the lifetime ban from the NBA for LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling for racist comments recorded on audio tape talking to his ex-girlfriend is not enough. The NAACP called for NBA commissioner Adam Silver to to meet with other owner’s to ensure that Sterling’s bigotry and racists views “remains an anomaly among the owners and executives in the league.” They also stated, “Sterling’s long-established pattern of bigotry and racist comments have not been a secret in the NBA. Yet until now, they have been tolerated and met with a gentle hand and a blind eye.” REALLY? Donald Sterling’s racist past was no secret to anyone. I guess the NAACP missed the multiple federal lawsuits for violating the Fair Housing Act based on race when his company refused to rent to African-American prospective tenants. But that did not stop the NAACP from giving Donald Sterling a ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ in 2009 and was about to give him another in May 2014 when it hit the fan. WHO TURNED A BLIND EYE? The NAACP looked the other way as to Sterling’s actions and instead took his money donations for years. Why else would Sterling get an award from a co-called civil rights organization at the same time in 2009 came just before he agreed to pay a $2.765 million settlement in a case that alleged he discriminated against African Americans, Latinos and others at apartment buildings he owned in Los Angeles County? LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD, SERIOUSLY?
A note to the NAACP, you might want to evaluate your own policies as to how you vet individuals before you give them awards before you lecture anyone.
Several civil rights organizations are applauding the NBA for its lifetime ban of Clippers owner Donald Sterling because of racist comments the league says he made in a recorded conversation.
However, those groups still want to meet with NBA commissioner Adam Silver to discuss diversity in the executive ranks of the professional basketball league and to figure out ways to ensure such situations don’t happen again.
The National Urban League, the National Action Network, the NAACP and the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation issued a joint statement cheering Silver’s announcement that he banned Sterling for life and that the league would attempt to force him to sell the Clippers.
That decision, the statement said, was “a bold, courageous and resolute message that the views expressed by Sterling do not represent the National Basketball Association as an organization today or the kind of organization that it seeks to be in the future.”
But Sterling’s suspension isn’t enough, the groups said, calling for Silver to meet with them to ensure Sterling “remains an anomaly among the owners and executives in the league.”
“Sterling’s long-established pattern of bigotry and racist comments have not been a secret in the NBA,” the statement said. “Yet until now, they have been tolerated and met with a gentle hand and a blind eye.”
The Gateway Pundits reminds us that with all the moral outrage from the NAACP … they are still keeping Donald Sterling’s money.
NAACP Was Set to Give L.A. Clippers Owner Donald Sterling a Lifetime Achievement Award Next Month Before He Was Caught on Audio Tape Making Racist Comments … What About all the previous Racism?
NAACP was for giving a racist NBA Basketball owner a Lifetime Achievement Award, before they were against it … WHERE WERE THEY BEFORE WITH HIS PREVIOUS RACIST ACTS?
The L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling was supposed to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award next month from the NAACP’s Los Angeles chapter. However, that was before Sterling was caught on an audio tape making racist and disgusting comments to his girlfriend regarding minorities. The award was supposed to be given on May 15, 2014. Upon the surfacing of the explosive and highly racial audio, the NAACP urged the chapter to withdraw Sterling from its honoree list and suggests that “African Americans and Latinos should honor his request and not attend the games.”
Sorry, my question is not that the NAACP is rescinding this Lifetime Achievement Award, it is why the so-called civil rights group ever gave it to him in the first place? Hey NAACP, Why so Silent?
But that was then, this is now, NAACP Interim President Lorraine Miller said Sunday on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ that the NAACP will not go forward with plans to give a lifetime achievement award to Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. She went on to say, “If you’re silent about this, then you’re accepting this. People have got to say that this is not good and do something about it.” Um, who was being silent? One would say the hypocritical NAACP. Did they forget above his previous racist behavior, or were they just being silent? And guess who has joined the act and is calling for a boycott of Clippers games, why the Rev. Jessee Jackson of course.
Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Miller condemned the racist remarks allegedly made by Sterling that were caught on audio recording and leaked over the weekend. The NAACP’s Los Angeles chapter was scheduled to give Sterling a lifetime achievement award at its 100th anniversary celebration next month.
“He is not receiving a lifetime achievement award from the NAACP,” Miller said.
HEY NAACP … WHY SO SILENT?
The NAACP must have missed the documented history of allegedly racist behavior where Sterling had been sued twice by the federal government for allegedly refusing to rent apartments to Blacks and Latinos. Oops, hey NAACP … why so silent? Maybe they might want to read about the case below? I guess the NAACP was also remaining silent when former Clippers exec and NBA great Elgin Baylor sued Sterling for racial discrimination. A jury was ultimately not convinced and shot down Baylor’s case. But when has that ever stopped the NAACP, can you say Trayvon Martin.
United States v. Donald Sterling, et al. (C.D. Cal.)
On November 12, 2009, the court entered a consent order resolving a pattern or practice lawsuit in United States v. Sterling (C.D. Cal.). The complaint, filed on August 7, 2006, alleged that Donald Sterling, Rochelle Sterling, the Sterling Family Trust, and the Korean Land Company, L.L.C. violated the Fair Housing Act on the basis of race, national origin and familial status by refusing to rent to non-Korean prospective tenants, misrepresenting the availability of apartment units to non-Korean prospective tenants, and providing inferior treatment to non-Korean tenants in the Koreatown section of Los Angeles. The complaint also alleged that the Sterling Defendants refused to rent to African-American prospective tenants and misrepresented the availability of apartment units to African-American prospective tenants in the Beverly Hills section of Los Angeles. In addition, the complaint alleged that the Sterling Defendants refused to rent to families with children and misrepresented the availability of apartment units to families with children throughout the buildings that they own or manage in Los Angeles County. The United States also alleged that the Sterling Defendants made statements and published notices or advertisements in connection with the rental of apartment units that expressed a preference for Korean tenants in the Koreatown section of Los Angeles and expressed discrimination against African-Americans and families with children in Los Angeles County.
The consent order requires the Defendants to: (1) pay a total of $2.725 million in monetary damages and civil penalties; (2) implement a self-testing program over the next three years to monitor their employees’ compliance with fair housing laws at their Los Angeles County properties; (3) maintain non-discriminatory practices and procedures; and (4) obtain fair housing training for their employees who participate in renting, showing, or managing apartments at the Los Angeles County properties. The order settles the claims of the United States and the private plaintiffs.
Bias law suit: Baylor v. National Basketball Association et al., case number BC407604, in the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Los Angeles, Central District.
The former general manager of the Los Angeles Clippers has slammed the National Basketball Association, the team, Clippers owner Donald Sterling and management agent Richard Andy Roeser with a lawsuit, accusing the parties of race and age discrimination and unlawful retaliation. On Thursday, Elgin Baylor filed suit in the Los Angeles division of California Superior Court, accusing his former team and colleagues of a slew of employment-related misdeeds.
“Elgin Baylor, a former NBA executive vice president and general manager, charges that he has suffered severe and continuing injury, including severe economic and noneconomic injuries as a result of unlawful and wrongful conduct engaged in by the defendants, individually and/or corporately,” the complaint said. “Consequently, in this action, Mr. Baylor seeks an award of economic, noneconomic and punitive damages, as well as an award of reasonable attorneys’ fees.”
Bi-Partisan Senate Vote Rejects Obama Nominee, Cop-Killer Atty. Debo Adegbile, to Lead the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division
A stinging bi-partisan vote defeat for Barack Obama … Sorry, but actions have consequences.
In a 47 to 52 vote in the US Senate, Republicans were joined by seven Democrats voting to continue a filibuster of Debo Adegbile’s nomination for the influential post, to lead the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division.Yes, the same Debo Adegbile, who represented cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was found guilty in 1981 of killing police officer Daniel Faulkner and turned the case into a racially-charged political cause-celeb, and, in doing so, went far beyond his duties as a lawyer to zealously represent his client.
As Sen Ted Cruz (R-TX) stated, Those Who Advocate For Cop Killers Aren’t Suited For Leadership at DOJ.
But not too much for Barack Obama to nominate …
Just what we did not need in the Civil Rights department enforcing the nation’s anti-discrimination laws, a lawyer as Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Pat Toomey led the charge against Adegbile’s nomination,“Under Mr. Adegbile’s oversight, LDF lawyers promoted the pernicious myth that Abu-Jamal was an innocent man, that he was framed because of his race.” Unproven allegations of racism reversed a cop-killers sentence. So I guess Barack Obama will call the following Democratic Senators racists and playing Washington politics, Heidi Heitkamp (ND), Joe Manchin (WV), Mark Pryor (AR), Joe Donnelly (IN), John Walsh (MT), Chris Coons (DE) and Bob Casey Jr. (PA), who voted with Republicans to block the nomination of Adegbile.
The Senate rejected President Obama’s nominee to lead the Justice Department’s civil rights division on Wednesday in a stunning 47-52 vote in which seven Democrats abandoned their leadership.
The vote was all the more remarkable for the five Democrats in tough reelection races this year who voted in vain to move Debo Adegbile’s nomination forward.
Their votes now become ammunition for Senate Republicans, who argued Adegbile was unfit to serve because of his legal work in support of Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of killing Philadelphia
police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981.
The vote was a stinging defeat for the White House that showed President Obama is politically out of step with some centrist Democrats heading into the midterm elections.
“He represents the best of the legal profession,” and if you like your cop-killing lawyer, you can keep him …
The response from the community agitator … Barack Obama defended his disgusting pick to head up the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department. Sorry Mr. President, this sick pick to further politicize the Justice Dept. and push it further left has failed. Even Democrats could not back your pick. Wow, if this is the best of the legal profession, the profession just sunk even lower.
Obama labeled the vote a “travesty” based on “wildly unfair” character attacks.
“Mr. Adegbile’s qualifications are impeccable. He represents the best of the legal profession, with wide-ranging experience, and the deep respect of those with whom he has worked,” Obama said. “As a lawyer, Mr. Adegbile has played by the rules. And now, Washington politics have used the rules against him.”
Where Are the Black Leaders on This … 72% of the Babies Aborted in Mississippi Are Black Between 1995 and 2010 … More Black Babies Aborted Than Born in NYC in 2012
Where is the outrage from Barack Obama, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and other black political and religious leaders on the genocide of black babies?
As reported at CNS News, data published by the CDC, although whites far outnumbered blacks in Mississippi by a 2 to 1 margin, 71.67% of the babies aborted are black, while only 26.6% are white during the years of 1995 and 2010. The reports shows that in some years, the percentages were even higher, in 2009, for example, the percentage of black babies killed by abortion in Mississippi in relation to the total was 76.8%. In 2007, it was 77.8%; in 2005, 77.2% Protein Wisdom makes a startling but true and valid point, “It’s like ‘Mississippi Burning’, only instead of redneck Klan members (who were Democrats, let’s remember), we now have the “pro-woman” “choice” crowd pushing its agenda on a race Margaret Sanger …”.
Where is Barack Obama saying that he could have been that aborted baby as he did when he interjected himself into the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman murder trial? Where is the outrage of this genocide?
Although whites outnumber blacks in Mississippi by nearly 2-to-1, 71.67% of the babies aborted in Mississippi are black, while 26.6% are white.
Based on data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 39,052 black babies were killed by abortions in Mississippi between 1995 and 2010. During that same time period, 14,529 white babies were aborted in the Magnolia State.
The total number of abortions between 1995 and 2010 in Mississippi was 54,484. In addition to blacks and whites, that number also includes abortions among Hispanics, “Other” (meaning Asian and Native American), and “Unknown,” as published by the CDC.
The data from the CDC should make black leaders cringe, but instead they are silent. So who profits and who loses from Planned Parenthood?

But wait, it gets worse. Also reported by CNS News, more black babies were killed by abortion in New York City than born.
In 2012, there were more black babies killed by abortion (31,328) in New York City than were born there (24,758), and the black children killed comprised 42.4% of the total number of abortions in the Big Apple, according to a report by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
The report is entitled, Summary of Vital Statistics 2012 The City of New York, Pregnancy Outcomes, and was prepared by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Office of Vital Statistics. (See Pregnancy Outcomes NYC Health 2012.pdf)
Ben Jealous, he head of the NAACP steps down citing family reasons. As reported at USA Today, the civil rights leader said he’s satisfied that he will leave an organization in much better condition than it was when he took over five years ago. Really, how so? If anything the NAACP has become more polarized and partisan in the past 5 years. Interestingly enough his reign of the NAACP has mirrored Barack Obama’s election as president. I would ask both, how is that black unemployment rate doing these days, especially black teens? Sorry, but it would appear the NAACP has become more political than carrying to truly help black America. As Jealous and the NAACP were so quick to demonstrate against the George Zimmerman “not guilty” verdict in the death of Trayvon Martin and call for civil rights hate crime charges, they have been all but non-existent to address the “killing fields” of Chicago and the black on black violence.
It is amazing that he focuses on Trayvon Martin and the 700 black teens were killed in Chicago.
The man who has become the face of the NAACP — from marches protesting the death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin to vigils for death row inmate Troy Davis in Georgia — is resigning effective Dec. 31.
In an interview with USA TODAY, Benjamin Todd Jealous said the constant travel as president and CEO of the nation’s largest civil rights organization has kept him away too much from his wife, civil rights lawyer Lia Epperson, and children, daughter Morgan, 7, and Jack, 13 months. He said he plans to make a formal announcement to his staff Monday morning.
“Leadership knows when to step up and when to step down,” Jealous said. “This day I can say with pride that I’m prepared to step down and make room for the next person who will lead this organization to its next chapter.”
HATE CRIME: Ginger Slepski Brutally Beaten by Four Black Teens in North Side of Pittsburgh, PA Says Attack Was ‘Racially Motivated’ … ‘Shut up White Bitch’
A note to President Barack Obama, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, NAACP and Attorney General Eric Holder … the following is what would be considered a racially motivated hate crime …
As reported at WPXI, Ginger Slepski was brutally attacked by a group of black female teens after Slepski stopped her vehicle to confront the girls after they had thrown a bottle at her car. When Ginger Slepski got out of her vehicle she was brutally attacked by the teens as they yelled at Slepski, “Shut up white bitch.” The other said, “Get that white bitch.” According to Slepski, she tried to get back into her car, but they grabbed her by her hair. Then one of the attackers punched her in the head and I was on a set of concrete steps and my head hit the concrete so hard. Then Slepski said, “Then they all got on top of me and all their hands were in my hair. They kept telling each other to, ‘Kick her in the head. Kick her head in the concrete.”
Hmm, where is the MSM demanding justice?
A woman who said she was brutally attacked by a group of black teenagers in Pittsburgh’s North Side Sunday said the girls savagely beat her while calling her racial slurs.
Ginger Slepski said she suffered multiple injuries, including torn shoulder ligaments. She said she thought the girls were going to kill her.
“I thought it was so animalistic. So violent. I’m so afraid for these girls to get out and walk the streets,” Slepski said.
Police said Slepski was savagely beaten after the girls threw a bottle at her car on Concord Street and she stopped to confront them.
“I was mad. I knew they were younger. I thought they were in their early 20s. I got out and said, ‘What is your problem?’” Slepski said.
All four African-American girls then called her names before getting physically violent.
“They yelled, ‘Shut up white [expletive].’ The other said, ‘Get that white [expletive],’” Slepski said.
Paging Attorney General Eric Holder. What a joke that Holder would actually contemplate civil rights and hate crime charges against George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Marin where there was no racial motivation, but in a case like the above attack where there is an obvious racial component, all we hear from Holder is the sound of crickets. Maybe Holder should be charged with a hate crime for his bias in determining what is and is not a hate crime depending on the color of one’s skin who is the attacker.
Well here’s an easy case, Eric. It won’t be too hard to prove a violation of 18 USC 249 or 18 USC 245 in this context. No outrageous self-defense defenses here.
But like in all the other similar cases you refuse to prosecute, the victim here wasn’t one of “your people.” Ginger’s parents didn’t endure the sort of garbage that your wife’s parents did down south. So she isn’t entitled to equal protection of the law, right?
Make no mistake, Ginger isn’t the only victim who won’t get justice from Justice just because of her race. Neither will the parents who were beaten at the Wisconsin State Fair. Nor will the parents in Ohio who saw thugs come on their lawn shouting racial slurs before they beat them.
Oh yeah, ans as The Other McCain reminds us, what say you Eric Holder about the “hate” speech coming from DHS Employs Deranged Race Warrior Ayo Kimathi who has only been placed on administrative leave with pay? Huh?

Don’t Mess with Texas … Obama Rodeo Clown Fired & Banned in Missouri is a Special Guest Star at the Mesquie Rodeo
Don’t mess with Texas … the Mesquie rodeo is bringing in the Obama rodeo clown along with three other presidential rodeo clowns. The Obama clown is a special guest star as the Mesquie Rodeo puts on the grand finale to its 2013 season with non-stop action you will only find in the aptly named ‘Rodeo Capital of Texas’.
To those who have no clue, have never watched a rodeo or have ever been to one, having presidential clowns at them is a tradition. This is nothing special targeting Barack Obama. No one squawked when there was a GWB clown. But the thin-skinned, always at the ready to cry racism LEFT always act like children in their reaction to anything that could be mean to Obama. How dare they. Too bad they did not also have the same feelings when it came to doing something that was in poor taste against Jesus. But in that case it is called “art” and “freedom of speech”.
Mesquite Arena General Manager Steve Gander reportedly said presidential rodeo clowns have been a long standing tradition at rodeos and that Obama will be joined at the event by three other presidents this weekend.
“Presidential and celebrity clowns and dummies have been in rodeo and other sports and entertainment events since before Richard Nixon,” Gander reportedly wrote.
“We are just being current and exercising our freedom of speech,” he added, assuring it will be “good clean family entertainment” and that the rodeo clowns will be “respectful.”
The ridiculous over-reaction in Missouri got the Obama rodeo clown banned for life from the State fair. How typical, Obama once again causing people to lose jobs and the LEFT causing nothing but problems and sticking their nose in where it does not belong. However, how is it that the NAACP wanted the Obama rodeo clown brought up on hate crimes and destroyed , yet Ayo Kimathi, an employee at the DHS can post anti-white, race war … In Order for Black people to Survive the 21st Century, We are Going to Have to Kill a lot of Whites” … and still retain his job? Sorry, suspended with pay is still retaining one’s job.
88 Year old WWII Vet Delbert Belton Attacked (Beaten to Death) in North Spokane, WA by Two Black Male Teens … Update: Delbert Belton Died of Injuries … RIP
Another murder at the hand of two black teen thugs … So let’s get this correct, a rodeo clown wearing an Obama mask is a hate crime, but two black teens beating an elderly, white war vet to death is not.
88 year old Delbert Belton, a World War II veteran, was beaten to death Wednesday night, August 21, 2013 around 8 pm in the Eagles Lodge parking lot near the Eagles Ice-A-Rena in North Spokane, Washington. Belton was rushed to the hospital where he was placed in the intensive care unit. Belton died Thursday morning at Sacred Heart Medical Center from his injuries. The police are looking for two suspects in the murder that are described as two black teens between the ages of 16 and 19. Both low-life thugs were wearing black clothing, one was wearing a black “Do-Rag”. Delbert Belton served during WWII in Okinawa, was wounded, but survived. However, he could not survive the streets of North Spokane and two black thugs. This man served his country and this is his reward from a generation of thugs where murder has become an epidemic.
Police say two teens assaulted 88-year-old Delbert Belton outside the Eagles Lodge in North Spokane Wednesday night around 8pm. Belton was rushed to the hospital where he was placed in the intensive care unit but later died. Police are actively searching for two suspects. They are described to be 16-19 in age, black males & both wearing black clothing, one was wearing a black “Do-Rag” police say.
Family & friends of Delbert Belton tell KHQ’s Dylan Wohlenhaus that Delbert was “full of life” at 88-years-old. They say Belton loved working on cars and helping out others. Belton also served overseas in the military in WWII.
Friends of Belton say he was wounded in WWII in Okinawa but survived. Police have not said if or what the motive was for the beating. Police believe this was a random attack.
Police are claiming it was a random attack. Why? How do they know it was not a hate crime and this elderly man was not targeted because he was white and an easy mark? Enough of the BS random crap and call it for what it is. The police, the media and the race hustlers would certainly not be calling it random if two white teens assaulted and murdered and elderly black WWI vet.

What say you Barack Obama? What say you Al Shapton? What say you Jesse Jackson? What say you NAACP?
Belton’s daughter-in-law tells KREM-TV that the suspects beat him with flashlights.
“They used those great big heavy flashlights,” Bobbie Belton said. “The doctors said he was bleeding from all parts of his face.”
Spokane Police say they have surveillance images of the attackers — at least one of them has been taken into police custody.
The Major Crimes Detectives are investigating the incident and are asking anyone with information to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
Sybrina Fulton, Mother of Trayvon Martin, Says Stop and Frisk Is Racial-Profiling … The Exploitation of Trayvon Martin’s Death Continues
NYC … soon to be the new Chicago.
Are you kidding me, first Trayvon’s mother is against stand your ground laws and now stop and frisk? Neither of which had anything to do with her son’s death. What is the point of her honoring her son’s death other than calling everything racist?
Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, goes on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ and states stop and frisk is racial profiling. Even though ‘stop and frisk’ laws have made NYC a safer place and actually prevented crime, these misguided individuals just want to call everything racially profiling. Flanked by NAACP’s Ben Jealous and Fulton’s attorney Benjamin Crump, this poor woman does not even realize she and the memory of her dead son are being exploited by race-baiters. How sad, or worse … she does. Sorry, but to end a police progam that actually works and actually saves the lives of individuals, including blacks, is just irresponsible. These race baiters have been looking for their “racial profile” campaign and they have found it by exploiting the death of Trayvon Martin. I can empathize with Sabrina Fulton’s loss, no parent should ever have to bury their child. But that certainly does not give you the right to back ignorant and foolish positions without question or criticism. Of course any one who disagrees will be branded a racist.
The wider point, Sabrina Fulton, i welcome you to the program. Just your reaction as a mother who’s lost her son so tragically and as now someone who’s trying to create something positive out of that searing loss by talking about stand your ground laws. You’ve heard the commissioner of new york say, look, what happened to Trayvon Martin, even though it was referenced in the judge’s ruling, is quite different. that was civilian on civilian. This is about civilians interacting with the police department. do you see that distinction or not?
I think it’s all about laws, and I think you have to give not only civilians, but you have to give the police officers the right direction. You can’t give people the authority, police officers the right to stop somebody because of the color of their skin.
Now for the sane side of the discussion from New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly who is adamantly is against the recent court ruling that ‘stop and frisk’ is Unconstitutional. This very law actually protect blacks in inner cities, but some how that is irrelevant. Once the law is banned and murders are on the rise of blacks in NYC, the same people will be complaining that the police are doing nothing.
No, absolutely, we are sensitive to this. nobody wants to be stopped. at the very least, you’re giving up your time. But we need some balance here. the stark reality is that violence is happening disproportionately in minority communities, and that, unfortunately, is in big cities throughout America. We have record low numbers of murders in New York City, record low numbers of shootings. We’re doing something right to save lives. last year, as i said, we had a record low in murders. This year we’re running 30% below that. let me give you another figure. In the last 11 years, 11 full years of the Bloomberg administration, there were 7,363 fewer murders in New York City than there were in the preceding 11 years. Now, if history is any guide, those lives saved are largely the lives of young men of color. so, we’re doing something.
Let me go back to those numbers that you referenced and put it up on the screen for our audience and go through some of those numbers and where some of the criticism is. 4.4 million stops. 6% arrests. 6% summons. 88% no further law enforcement action. And then look at who is getting targeted. 52% black, 31% Hispanic, 10% white. I first want to focus on that 88% number of people not doing anything wrong. Does that not say to you as the commissioner of the police, we’re doing too much of this?
No. it doesn’t mean that people are not doing anything wrong. If you look at the statute, it says reasonable suspicion that individuals may be about to commit, are committing or have committed a crime. One of the classic examples that we use is somebody going down the street trying door handles, or a group of young men that the bodega owner fears going to strong arm rob them when they leave their store. so, there’s a preventive aspect to this. and people say innocent. that’s not the appropriate word. what we use here.
Wait until NYC looks like Chicago with the ridiculous murder rates … Maybe Trayvon’s mom will be happy then?
Bill O’Reilly Blasts ‘Race Hustler’ Al Sharpton: You Have Failed. FAILED! Your Day Is Done! … Make a Lot of Money by Promoting Racial Division
I give Bill O’Reilly a lot of credit for discussing the situation for fear of being branded a racists …
Fox News Bill O’Reilly blasted Al Sharpton, the race hustler for his failure to help the black community and only promote racial division while making money in the process. Previously, O’Reilly did a talking points memo as to what the real problems were in the black community and was spot on. However, the race hustlers like Sharpton could never accept such comments because it did not promote racial divide and Sharpton could not turn a profit off it. It is a sad state of affairs when today’s Civil Rights activists are nothing more than agitators and the MSM gives them credibility. In the end, O’Reilly stated that Sharpton’s days are over, done! I could only hope so for the sake of the black community and racial peace in the United States.
“Sharpton and others are attacking me because I am a threat to them. They have failed. FAILED. to deal with problems in the black community and they make a lot of money promoting racial division… Talking Points believes the day of the race hustler has come to an end. This we and them business gets the country nowhere. There are severe problems in the black community that have to be solved… You bet, Al. Your day is done.”
Check out the talking points memo from O’Reilly that started it all as to the real problems in the black community. To not have a real conversation on the black community, not just racism … is the real racism. How can whites, blacks, anyone just sit by and watch it continue to happen without lifting a finger? O’Reilly called out the black race baiting merchants to address the real problems, not pray on the continued racial division and jump on the anti-George Zimmerman band wagon.
You want a conversation, You got it. The only problem is it has to be an honest conversation and stop the nonsense and for leaders to actually lead the way to a better America and stop the victimization. Those were basically the sentiments of Bill O’Reilly. Of course he will be branded a racist for actually caring and wanting to make a real difference.
Every one should view this honest, hard, tough love video
