Painfully woke white people yanking TV shows off the air and tearing down statues aren’t helping the racial justice cause, according to the founder of Black Entertainment Television. He says black people “laugh at” these displays.
Removing Confederate statues does nothing for black people, billionaire TV magnate Robert Johnson told Fox News on Wednesday. “It’s not going to give a kid whose parents can’t afford college, money to go to college. It’s not going to close the labor gap…and it’s not going to take people off welfare or food stamps.”

Amazing

BLM’s #WhatMatters2020 is a campaign aimed to maximize the impact of the BLM movement by galvanizing BLM supporters and allies to the polls in the 2020 U.S Presidential Election to build collective power and ensure candidates are held accountable for the issues that systematically and disproportionately impact Black and under-served communities across the nation.

BLM's #WhatMatters2020

#WhatMatters2020 will focus on issues concerning racial injustice, police brutality, criminal justice reform, Black immigration, economic injustice, LGBTQIA+ and human rights, environmental injustice, access to healthcare, access to quality education, and voting rights and suppression.

This initiative will inspire and motivate people to ask themselves and their candidates are you really addressing What Matters in 2020?

See, when it comes to politics its gets a bit messy.

as I understand it there's going to be a choice between Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

If you check Biden's record, you'll see he was never a friend of the black community. he is a Democrat, the party which faught to keep slavery. how you gonna trust him ? how you gonna vote for him not knowing if he's in his right mind  ..or if he is, how long will he keep it.

[/b]
also understand funding for #BLM comes from both the Clinton foundation  (red flag there) and George Sorros (huge red flag there)

[b]edit: unproven
  ]


Trump... he speaks for himself. hes definitely no friend of the black community

I remember watching an interview last week where a woman from the original Panthers talked about the upcoming vote. She said (paraphrase) the choice was shit, they have to figure out which one of them could be pressured more to getting stuff done

I think in that instance Joe Biden is the man. the black community may gain stuff but the rest of the world will lose

Candace Owens is such a sweetheart for disseminating faux information for Faux News. Even when she knows the truth. . .


[. . . ]

PolitiFact could find no evidence that Soros or the Open Society Foundations had contributed to any organization that financed street protests in Minneapolis.

Owens also claimed that the Open Society Foundations gave $33 million to the Black Lives Matter movement.

The claim that George Soros funded the Ferguson protests and Black Lives Matter was checked by Snopes in 2015, and it received a mixed rating. Snopes said that Open Society Foundations has donated $33 million to organizations that have worked with Black Lives Matter or worked to raise awareness during the Ferguson-related protests. However, they had never given money to groups for the express purpose of organizing protests with the movement.

The representative from Open Society Foundations said that their grants are made to organizations to help them "support communities and advance policy change."

We didn’t find any evidence that the foundation has given money directly to the Black Lives Matter movement. The most recent connection they have with the organization is their 2018 grant of $279,860 to Release Leads, a UK organization that mostly focuses on international drug use education and policy reform, but also organizes public speaking events that feature the Black Lives Matter movement in the UK.

Our ruling

Owens’ tweet that Soros was "funding the chaos" in Minneapolis through Open Society Foundations is unproven. She continued to claim that the foundation had paid protesters after Open Society Foundations denied it on Twitter.

There is no evidence that Soros or the foundation had given any grants to organizations that funded and organized "the chaos" in Minneapolis. We rate this claim False.

#Whatmatters2020 is that every fact check.

On 22 September 2017, in the aftermath of several highly publicized (and occasionally violent) anti-fascist counter protests at white supremacist rallies in 2017, the satirical web site Last Line of Defense falsely reported that the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton had secretly donated a total of $7.1 million to the international anti-fascist movement known as “antifa”.

According to a “bombshell” report from Breitbart.com, the Clinton Foundation made some interesting “donations” to Antifa International in the amount of $75,983, multiple separate donations to Unite Against Fascism of more than $25,000 each, as well as donations to other antifa groups. In total, she handed out more than $7.1 million to fund groups that brutally attack conservatives.

There is no such report, and there were no such donations.

You can check the Clinton Foundation’s spending over recent years in various IRS Form 990s on the organization’s web site. None of these documents show any donations to any anti-fascist groups. Funding and donations to and from the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative have been the subject of many false reports and hoaxes in recent years.

Furthermore, like everything published by the Last Line of Defense web site, this story is entirely false even without the added paper trail. The web site describes itself as publishing only “satirical” content in this disclaimer:
'

America’s Last Line of Defense is a satirical publication that uses the imagination of liberals to expose the extreme bigotry and hate and subsequent blind gullibility that festers in right-wing nut jobs. We present fiction as fact and our sources don’t actually exist. Names that represent actual people and places are purely coincidental and all images should be considered altered and do not in any way depict reality.

and what are the facts
MICRO FACIAL PROFILING
WOULD THIS NOT HELP
to find the facts
i find it sad
that people are still walking in circles
the same standerd way of thinking
the same shallow research
the same group hug protesting
ignoring the fact
that to make the changes
that are needed
for peace
the justice system
has to changed first
this one thing has to be
first on the list
ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE
or nothing will change
I'M AMAZED
that people like yourself
who claim to have common sense logical reasoning
refuse to even think about
puting  the justice system
first on the list
that has to change
why is that
to hard
strange

North Carolina Senate passes bills to reform criminal justice system


Two measures that would revamp North Carolina's justice system passed the state Senate on Tuesday.

The Senate voted unanimously to approve the First Step Act and Second Chance Act amid new momentum in addressing systemic and racial disparities in the criminal justice system.

The Second Chance Act would allow certain felonies and misdemeanors committed before Dec. 1, 2019, to be expunged from a juvenile's record. It also would eliminate barriers that limit certain nonviolent crimes to be removed from an adult's record. The First Step Act overturns a portion of the state's mandatory minimum sentencing statute.

"We all need second chances," said Sen. Natalie Murdock, D-Durham. "If people are to truly re-enter society after serving their time, they should have a real opportunity to have a second chance."

cabcool said:Black Like Me—John Howard Griffin

John Howard Griffin, author of Black Like Me, was a white man living in Mansfield, TX in 1959.  His puzzlement with racial injustice caused him to undergo medical skin-color change to appear as a black man and merged into the community under disguise.

Traumatic experiences in New Orleans led to a hitchhike in Alabama and Mississippi, where things became even worse.  After a while, Griffin navigated between his black and his white identities (by relaxing or sticking to his medication), noticing that whites treated him with respect when he was white, and blacks treated him with suspicious fear.  In his black role, blacks treated him with warm generosity and whites with contempt.  Griffin realised that the races just did not understand one another; he concluded that dialogue would be critical in bridging the gap.

Griffin shared his experiences in an interview series with black leaders in Atlanta before returning to New Orleans to make a photographic essay.  Going off his medication permanently, he then returned home and published his article in March 1960.  When the news got out, it took the world by storm.

However, the prevailing attitude of racism made Griffin and his family the subject of hateful reprisals.  Rebels painted an effigy of Griffin half-white/half-black and burned it on Main Street.  After a cross was burnt in a black community schoolyard amidst threats to castrate Griffin, he moved his family to Mexico.

It was very intense, Cabcool. The psychological impact of realization was almost too much for him to bear. The South was rough; people who haven't lived there will never understand the mindset regardless of what they experienced in the rest of the world. It made the biggest impact on my life more than anything else. And I've had some HUGE impacts.

This was released when we lived in England and was certainly never advertised and/or promoted ( along with the true story ) in southern education. Thank you for sharing.



re: the movie "Black Like Me" .....

I really had to suspend my belief through the entire movie, given to me, the actor playing Howard Griffin was obviously not Black beyond the skin color.  But I also think that him having a familiar face had something to do with it. I was unsettled until 3/4 through when the realization hit me it was the same actor who plaid Brooks Hatlen in "The Shawshank Redemption"!

Regardless, it was a good movie, and unnerving - yet not surprising how much interest there was in interracial sex on behalf of the racist White male population. I know much of it was a control / dominance behavior, but still ....

Racism is a fear based behavior that results in a boatload of hypocrisy.

Trump's Brother Files New Suit to Stop Niece's Book After First Thrown Out

President Donald Trump's brother Robert Trump has filed a second lawsuit over the upcoming publication of his niece's upcoming tell-all book about the president.

Mary Trump, who is the daughter of Robert and Donald Trump's deceased brother Fred Jr., penned Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man, which is slated to be published by Simon & Schuster on July 28.

Robert Trump's first lawsuit to block the book failed when Queens County Surrogate Court Judge Peter Kelly threw it out on Thursday, ruling that the president's brother should have filed suit in New York Supreme Court instead. On Friday, Robert Trump's attorney Charles Harder filed the new lawsuit with New York's Dutchess County Supreme Court.


"This is yet another baseless attempt by the Trump family to obtain an unconstitutional prior restraint to block core political speech relating to the President," Mary Trump's lawyer Theodore Boutrous said in a statement to Newsweek. "It will fail."

Actually :

I do not know where she got the term from ,
but it is an exact formula in the Code ;

I would posit , used within the organization ;

Police = 247 ( Runic )

The = 41 ( Runic )

Blue = 78 ( Runic )

Life = 628 ( high value for the word ) ( Obri / Hebrew )

= 994

The two sets of columns of eight in the Code ,
which are the base level program of the brain

Interesting...

As I have said , many use this to influence
people , and determine and create our reality ;

Same two columns , equal "Original Sin"...

...LOL...
