Exposing Murderous Police Can Enlighten White People

Exposing Murderous Police Can Enlighten White People

The police are estimated to kill three white people and two black people every day. The US Government does not compile or publish annual statistics on the number of people killed by the police.   The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health states “no reliable data exist on the number of person’s killed by the police”(12/8/15).   There are estimates of[Read More…]

Kaepernick Forces Americans To Choose Sides

Kaepernick Forces Americans To Choose Sides

When Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers chose to remain seated during the national anthem on August 26 prior to the start of the team’s game against the Green Bay Packers, as the rest of the stadium stood, he was not the only one engaging in a political act. But Kaepernick was likely the only one doing so consciously.[Read More…]

Charlotte Under Emergency After Police Shot Dead Another Black Man

Charlotte Under Emergency After Police Shot Dead Another Black Man

In  Charlotte, North Carolina emergency has been imposed due to the violence spreading in the city after the strong reaction of the local people when a black man Keith Lamont Scott was killed by the local police on the suspicion that he was armed with fire arms and was not ready to disarm even after the callings by the police.[Read More…]

Why “Bad Cops” Are Not The Real Issue

Why “Bad Cops” Are Not The Real Issue

I’m hoping these comments will bring some analysis to 5 seemingly innocuous but misguided words: “Not all cops are bad” and “good cops versus bad cops”. If you’re in the company of someone who says this or posts this on social media, and if you have seen and heard this as much as I have lately, then perhaps it’s time[Read More…]

 When Is Terrorism Not Terrorism To America? 

 When Is Terrorism Not Terrorism To America? 

I find my White American students – even the very bright ones – totally confused, the moment I ask them if White police brutality against Black people in America amounts to terrorism. Most White students attribute the killings of black people by White police as undesirable, accidental, or simply due to bad judgment by the proverbial “bad cops”. Mostly Black[Read More…]

Death Of A Nation?

Death Of A Nation?

A hundred-and-fifty-one years after the abolition of slavery, America has a half white, half black president, a black Nobelist in literature, whites who attribute not just every form but instance of black dysfunction to white racism, blacks who demand reparations, the mainstreaming of innumerable black slang terms, including “diss,” a new phrase “negro fatigue” and the bumper sticker, “IF I[Read More…]

 ‘Black Lives Matter’ Leaders Betraying Martin Luther King

 ‘Black Lives Matter’ Leaders Betraying Martin Luther King

Unless Martin Luther King is wrong, the movement to protect US Blacks from White people will go nowhere while Black GIs help white people kill Africans in Africa and other non-Caucasian people all around the globe. Slogan ‘Black Lives Matter’ is ignominious, humiliating, undignified, embarrassing, pleading, definitely not noble, not appropriate to repeated murdering of innocent folks and children and other inhuman behavior

Can The United States Transcend White Supremacy?

Can The United States Transcend White Supremacy?

Facing what seems like an endless stream of news about racialized conflicts and violence, many people call for us to get beyond our history and find solutions for today, concrete actions we can take immediately, ways of expressing love right now to help us cope with the pain. This yearning is understandable, but it’s just as important that we grapple[Read More…]

Being Black Palestinian: Solidarity As A Welcome Pathology 

Being Black Palestinian: Solidarity As A Welcome Pathology 

Last year, I wrote an article that made many readers unhappy. As soon as it was published, I began receiving messages of abuse and angry, threatening calls. I hesitated about reporting the threats to the local police in Washington State and, in the end, I resolved to file the unpleasant experience under a burgeoning folder of ‘controversies’ caused by my[Read More…]

Shootings In Dallas: Violence, Police Authority And Black Lives Matter

Shootings In Dallas: Violence, Police Authority And Black Lives Matter

While the police have been dishing it out extensively for years to the black community, often with murderous effect, retaliation was bound to come. A movement scolded for being narky and lacking respect became a sounding board for some who felt that violence was merely logical, the last refuge for the desperate. This is hardly an excuse, but it constitutes some explanation. The motor of revenge tends to be a hungry, and not always rational one

Legalized Murder And The Politics Of Terror

Legalized Murder And The Politics Of Terror

Police officers carry out random acts of legalized murder against poor people of color not because they are racist, although they may be, or even because they are rogue cops, but because impoverished urban communities have evolved into miniature police states. Police can stop citizens at will, question and arrest them without probable cause, kick down doors in the middle[Read More…]

Protester and Cop in Camden, NJ

Blacks, Cops And A Sinking Economy

In Ethnic America, Thomas Sowell observes, “American pluralism was not an ideal with which people started but an accommodation to which they were eventually driven by the destructive toll of mutual intolerance in a country too large and diverse for effective dominance by any one segment of the population. The rich economic opportunities of the country also provided alternative outlets[Read More…]

UN: Root Of US Police Terror Is ‘Lack Of Accountability For Perpetrators’

UN: Root Of US Police Terror Is ‘Lack Of Accountability For Perpetrators’

US police kill approximately 1,000 people per year according to Federal statistics, disproportionately targeting particularly African and Native Americans.  The UN expert panel on people of African descent observed this week that these killings “demonstrate a high level of structural and institutional racism. The United States is far from recognizing the same rights for all its citizens.” The two men[Read More…]

Don’t Move! How USA Murders Unpeople

Two major news stories here in the U.S., both chilling, point out how readily U.S. authorities will murder people based on race and the slightest possibility of a threat to those in places of power. On July 5th Baton Rouge police killed Anton Sterling in a Louisiana parking lot.  Sterling was a 37-year-old Black father of five selling CDs outside[Read More…]
