Cop Murders Fleeing Black Teens (VIDEO)

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Criminal, Harm, News, Political, Questions, Race — Scottie @ 16:13

This is cut and dry, and caught on VIDEO.  The police stopped a car and later admitted it was the wrong one.  A 17 year old black boy ran from the car.  They shot him in the back.  IN the BACK.  He posed no danger to any one at that point, so for all my training in my former job there was NO reason to use deadly force.  The police just murdered an unarmed black teen running from them.  Is this the U.S. of A. you want to live in?   Hugs

The USA separates children from families and then not only loses them, but admits that some were given over to traffickers. Then says the government is not legally or morally responsible? This is pure child abuse!

“If you are smuggling a child then we will prosecute you, and that child will be separated from you as required by law,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions earlier this month. “If you don’t like that, then don’t smuggle children over our border.”

Border Patrol agent detains women for speaking Spanish at Montana gas station

Filed under: Bigotry, Harm, News, Political, Questions, Race, Reason — Scottie @ 10:52

What the heck is wrong with the people in the US.   Being able to speak more than one language is a gift, a talent, not a crime.  How can any reasonable person think hearing speak another language means their an illegal immigrant?   How much of a sheltered life do you have to have to know other languages are spoken in the US?   I personally have trouble understanding the different english dialects spoken in this country.  Hearing something you can not understand is not grounds for arrest and detainment or people from Maine would be arrested in Georgia.   This is simply more fear mongering and scapegoating.  More of the us against the them mentality.   One thing that I notice is that spanish is the language picked out for these tiraids and investigations, not any other that is spoken.   I wonder why?   Please go to the link below and read the story.  Then let me know what you think.  Hugs

Ranting Pro-Trump NYC Lawyer Threatens To Call ICE Because Deli Staffers Were Speaking Spanish [VIDEO]

This sadly is America today under tRump and his fowl ilk.   

I simply do not feel like posting the shit this man said and his seeming not to understand US law, even though he is a lawyer.   There is not national language in the USA and the fact that you can not speak a language others are speaking is not their fault, it is yours.  These people were not speaking to him.  However just hearing something he couldn’t understand set off his “white english privilege” to explode.   I lived in a country where I couldn’t speak the language.  I tried, but it is a skill I did not have.  Those people did not shun me, nor make me feel bad, they helped me, often changing to english to make sure I was included. Why can we not do the same here?   Hugs

There are huge racial disparities in how US police use force

Filed under: Bigotry, Economics, Harm, News, Questions, Race, Reason — Tags: , — Scottie @ 09:17

https://www.vox.com/cards/police-brutality-shootings-us/us-police-racism

Here are some quotes from the article.   There is much more information at the site.  Thanks.  Hugs

Black people are much more likely to be shot by police than their white peers.

An analysis of the available FBI data by Vox’s Dara Lind found that US police kill black people at disproportionate rates: Black people accounted for 31 percent of police killing victims in 2012, even though they made up just 13 percent of the US population. Although the data is incomplete because it’s based on voluntary reports from police agencies around the country, it highlights the vast disparities in how police use force.

The disparities appear to be even starker for unarmed suspects, according to an analysis of 2015 police killings by the Guardian. Racial minorities made up about 37.4 percent of the general population in the US and 46.6 percent of armed and unarmed victims, but they made up 62.7 percent of unarmed people killed by police.

These disparities in police use of force reflect more widespread racial inequities across the entire American criminal justice system. Black people are much more likely to be arrested for drugs, even though they’re not more likely to use or sell them. And black inmates make up a disproportionate amount of the prison population.

The article talks about crime rates which are frequently used to justify higher rates of police shooting black people.  They show how this doesn’t correlate.  Here is one quote.  Again the article has more information, please check it out.  Hugs

Another study, from 2015, by researcher Cody Ross found, “There is no relationship between county-level racial bias in police shootings and crime rates (even race-specific crime rates), meaning that the racial bias observed in police shootings in this data set is not explainable as a response to local-level crime rates.” That suggests that, again, other factors are involved in the disparities seen for these shootings.

Trump Voters Driven by Fear of Losing Status, Not Economic Anxiety, Study Finds

Filed under: Bigotry, News, opinion, Political, Questions, Race — Tags: , , , — Scottie @ 12:58

 

A study published on Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences questions that explanation, the latest to suggest that Trump voters weren’t driven by anger over the past, but rather fear of what may come. White, Christian and male voters, the study suggests, turned to Mr. Trump because they felt their status was at risk.

“It’s much more of a symbolic threat that people feel,’’ said Diana C. Mutz, the author of the study and a political science and communications professor at the University of Pennsylvania, where she directs the Institute for the Study of Citizens and Politics. “It’s not a threat to their own economic well-being; it’s a threat to their group’s dominance in our country over all.”

“It used to be a pretty good deal to be a white, Christian male in America, but things have changed and I think they do feel threatened,” Dr. Mutz said.

The other surveys supported the cultural anxiety explanation, too.

For example, Trump support was linked to a belief that high-status groups, such as whites, Christians or men, faced more discrimination than low-status groups, like minorities, Muslims or women, according to Dr. Mutz’s analysis of the University of Chicago study.

PLease watch this.  I know some of my readers do not like videos, but the time spent is of value.   It shows clearly that even when people claim not to be racist they act very differently to the skin color of the actors.   Thank you to Xena for posting this in her comments section.  Hugs
