"Safe House."

OK, here is a little suggestion for the president of these divided states of America: For the next few weeks, get a few Secret Service agents you can trust. (I am thinking of the black ones with some experience.) Put them in a room with you, and don't come out until we get this protection thing right.

In case you didn't notice, you are not safe.

"The Secret Service’s bad week continues, with Washington Post reporter Carol Leonnig (who’s been all over this all week) revealing another crazy Secret Service flub: an armed man with a criminal record was allowed to ride an elevator with the President of the United States.

Yes, mere weeks ago, President Obama was in Atlanta, visiting the CDC to discuss how the U.S. is combating ebola (yeah, how’s that going?), and ended up on an elevator with a contractor.

The man took out his phone and recorded video of the president. Secret Service asked him to stop and questioned him. They did a background check and discovered he had multiple convictions in the past for assault and battery.

Oh, and he had a gun on him, which apparently, the Secret Service agents were unaware of until he made them aware of this.

The Secret Service has said it’s checking into that incident."

My lord! How many incidents are they checking out these days?

Fortunately for them the guy wasn't a FOX NEWS viewer, if he was, it probably would have been a wrap.

Dude would have just lived out his Dr. Carl Weiss fantasy and become a hero to some on the right.

Finally, I know that there has been a reported case of Ebola here in America, but please forgive me if my panic meter is way down on this one.

I think I can speak for most black men in America when I say that the least of our worries is catching a dose of Ebola.

There are just far more pressing things to worry about right now. Like how to avoid getting shot to death by someone in law enforcement even while you are in your own driveway. (Heck even the man who is supposed to be the safest black man in America is not safe. Isn't that right Mr. President?)

"The case of an unarmed black grandfather shot to death in his own driveway by a white police officer in South Carolina has fueled demands for more transparency into cases where unarmed civilians are killed by police.

The lack of transparency into Mr. Satterwhite’s death and Mr. Craven’s culpability has raised hackles in the black community...

The handling of the incident involving Craven stands in stark contrast to another case in the state from earlier this month. South Carolina Highway Patrol decided to release video last week that shows state Trooper Sean Groubert, who is white, telling a black motorist to get his license and then shooting him when the motorist reaches into his own car. The trooper was fired and brought up on felony assault charges.

US police shoot and kill an average of 1,000 people a year, 1 in 4 of whom are unarmed, according to data from Mr. Aveni and the FiveThirtyEight blog by Nate Silver. Seventy-nine officers have died so far this year, 35 from gunshots, according to a nonprofit group called the Officer Down Memorial Page." [Source]

I know it's coming so let me do it for you.

But field, what about all those killings by gangbangers and thugs in urban America?

Well, for starters, those gangbangers aren't out shooting grandfathers in their driveway. They are shooting each other. That's a sad state of affairs and one I have addressed numerous times on this blog and other public forums.

But here is the thing, those gangbangers are not trained to serve and protect us with the help of our tax dollars.

It is the police officer's job to protect us from the gangbangers and drug dealers; not treat us like one.

"In the Craven case, prosecutors and police have refused to provide documents requested by the Associated Press and answer questions from the news organization about the details of their investigation. According to AP, prosecutors sought a voluntary manslaughter felony charge against the officer. But a grand jury instead indicted him last month for "using excessive force and failing to follow and use proper procedures" – a misdemeanor.

Craven is now on paid administrative leave from the force."

I am sure it's with pay.

Bad company?

So now we are finding out that this story of the intruder breaking into the White House is even more serious than we first thought.

It turns out that the dude was only a "half- flight" from the Obama's living space. (The East Room)

Think about that for a minute......

Not only was he a trained veteran, he was armed with a knife as well.(A fact that the U.S. Secret Service first denied. )  And, to make matters worse, he had some serious mental issues.

To say that the Secret Service has some explaining to do is an understatement.

I am not sure that I can blame some of you Negroes for theorizing that this was some elaborate plot to take out America's first  second black president by his enemies.

Even if the alleged book thrashing Obama by a former Secret Service agent is a hoax, it was a believable hoax because some of us believe that it's not such a stretch to think that many of these current Secret Service agents are not feeling the love for the black president.

"Every day the Secret Service is challenged to ensure security at the White House complex while still allowing public accessibility to a national historical site," the agency said in a statement.

"Although last night the officers showed tremendous restraint and discipline in dealing with this subject, the location of Gonzalez's arrest is not acceptable."

Gee, ya think?

I can hear dude now: Hellooo, is anybody home? Mr. President, it's me, Omar, I have something to tell you.

Seriously, the agency charged with protecting America's leader has some work to do. I know that the Obama haters and FOX VIEWS crowd don't care about it right now, but I hope that they remember that this president only has a couple of years left as president, and that the next family who occupies 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue (not 1400, Sarah) could possibly come from their ideological camp.

The top ten House Negroes in America today.

I am bringing you my top ten list of house Negroes in America for 2014.

This list is not necessarily in an order of importance, and it reflects the top ten house Negroes in America at this particular point in time.

1. Jason Riley-This Negro is dangerous because a major newspaper gives him a platform to spew his nonsense.

2. Don Lemon-This was a close one, because this Negro actually makes some good points at times. But his body of tomming work is too large to ignore.

3. Sheryl Underwood-“Why would you save Afro hair?” She went on to imply that no one wants to save black people’s hair, adding that you never hear of a woman in a beauty shop asking for that “curly, nappy, beady” hair.
In contrast, Underwood praised her white co-host for saving her child’s hair because it was probably “some beautiful, long silky stuff.” I am sure there is lots of perm in the house.

4. Stacey Dash- Nothing wrong with supporting Mitt Romney if you really think he would make a better president. But supporting him because you think that the white man's milk is cleaner is house Negro behavior. 

5. Allen West- This Negro almost didn't make the list because he is a borderline cartoon character and this list is for real people.

6. 50 Cent (AKA Curtis Jackson)- If you have $750,000 to throw around while you make fun of another man's reading skills, why don't you just give that money to a worthy cause?

7. Rev.Jesse Jackson- To the house,Rev. Jackson. Calling for donations in Ferguson and appearing on FOX made me send you there.

8. Robin Clearmountain- You have probably never heard of this lady, but she has a special place in the house.

9. All the Negroes who participate in those lame cooning reality shows. (I see you Tamar.)

10. Clarence Thomas-The house was custom built for this Negro. He will make every house Negro list from here until the end of time.

(Honorable mention goes to Tavis Smiley, Stephen A SmithHerman Cain, and Ray Nagin.)

Tasered while praying.

I really wish I could get worked up over a latte salute like conservatives (I suppose a doggie salute would have been cool), or climate change and sustainable energy like my friends on the left, but as a black man in America I have more pressing things to worry about these days.

Not getting shot or tasered by the people who are supposed to protect and serve me is very high on my list as I write this post.

I mean even if you are a black man who serves the Lord you are going to have issues with the po po.

"A family told Channel 11 it is suing police after an alleged incident after their son was shot and died in the hospital.

The Rev. Earl Baldwin Jr. said when his stepson, Mileek Grissom, died in UPMC Mercy Hospital’s emergency room, police officers crossed the line.

“I needed to tell him his family was going to be OK.  I was going to do everything I could to make sure they were OK,” Baldwin said.

Video shows Baldwin being ripped away from Grissom by a group of police officers.  One officer used a Taser on Baldwin.

UPMC claims Baldwin was interfering with attempts to revive his stepson.

“Watch the video.  Not only was the child not being treated.  The child was dead,” said the Baldwin’s family attorney, Joel Sansone.

According to Sansone, police stopped Tori Baldwin in front of the hospital, refusing to let her see her son.

“I wanted to rub his head.  I wanted to kiss him.  I know he was calling for his mom,” said Tori Baldwin.

Pittsburgh police did not comment Thursday after Channel 11 talked to the family.  Police will be required to publicly respond to the lawsuit claims in a matter of days."

Now let's be clear, the Baldwin family might not have been acting according to the rules of the hospital while their son lay dead. But I think the police could have been a bit more sensitive in the situation.

Speaking of "people of faith", I am saddened to see that  my white evangelical brothers and sisters believe that they are being
discriminated against more than the Negroes, the Jews, and the evil Moooslims.

"The Pew Forum has released a doozy of a poll about religion in public life in the United States showing that white evangelical Christians possess grossly overdeveloped feelings of victimhood. Given that the voting bloc evangelicals comprise is one of the most heavily pandered to in American politics, and given the fact that evangelicals themselves are the cause of some very real discrimination, there is thus a mountainous irony at play here.

In a survey of 2,002 Americans, Pew found that 72% believe that religious influence is waning in the country, and sadly, 56% regard this as a “negative development.” A disturbing 59% of Americans say they want members of Congress to “have strong religious beliefs.” When it comes to discrimination, believe it or not, more Americans think that evangelicals are discriminated against than atheists. " [Source] 

I feel their pain. But somehow I don't think that they have to worry about being shot or tasered after they leave a prayer- meeting or choir practice.

"Let's go to the videotape."

Tonight is videotape night in the fields.

I have a couple that I would like to share.

The first one deals with the perils of driving while black. (DWB)

"Video shows Groubert pulling up to Levar Jones, who had just parked at a gas station (the stop was ostensibly over a seat belt violation).

Groubert instructed Jones to get his license, but when Jones reached into the car to retrieve it Groubert began shooting. Groubert continued firing even after Jones, who was unarmed, had backed away from the car with his hands raised.
“Why did you shoot me?” Jones is heard to ask. “I just got my license! You said get my license.” When Groubert asked if Jones was hit, he replied, “I can’t feel my legs.”

Groubert was fired from the patrol last week, and faces up to twenty years in prison if convicted. Jones, meanwhile, was hopsitalized and is recovering from a gunshot wound to the hip."  [Video and story here]

It seems that you just can't win when you DWB. If you move too slow you catch a bullet from the po po. If you move too fast you catch a bullet as well.

Oh well, at least Mr. Jones lived.

John Crawford, III was not so lucky.

His crime was shopping while black. (SWB)

"The video shows Crawford continuing through the store. He paused at some store shelves, and it appears he’s still on the phone, fiddling with the gun as it swings, pointed toward the ground. Then, police enter the frame to his side; you can see Crawford turn his head, fall to the ground, scramble in the other direction, then turn back around before ultimately falling to the ground. It’s unclear whether he dropped the gun before being shot or after.

Special prosecuting attorney Mark Piepmeier , said: '“He’s still on the phone when these officers confront him, he’s probably not paying attention to what he’s doing, and this happens...”' [Video and story here]

Not only is Mr. Crawford dead, but his family will not receive any justice. Those officers will not be charged by the state of Ohio.

But there is hope. The DOJ will be taking up the case.

Poor Mr. Crawford must have thought that he enjoyed certain privileges which are afforded to guys like these.  They can openly carry real assault rifles in public without any fear of repercussions. People like Mr. Crawford cannot.

Mr. Holder, you picked a bad time to leave.

When a house Negro wears blue.

When I write about house Negroes and field Negroes in America I hope that folks understand what this means: Being black does not automatically get you a black pass. "All my skin folks ain't my kin folks as the old saying goes".

Some white Americans (ahem ahem, conservatives, ahem) are using the shooting of a black 14 year old near New Orleans by a black police officer as a "Gotcha moment!".

"See, they shoot each other too, what's the big deal if a white police officer shoots one of them under questionable circumstances?"

The thing is, though, we expect this type of behavior from certain types of Negroes. Especially those who are corrupted by the wrong elements in certain police departments across the country.

I don't want to jump to conclusions about this particular story, because, unlike Ferguson, it is not as clear what exactly happened. There are allegations that the young man who lost his life had a weapon, and that the shooting was justifiable. We will see.

If it was not a justifiable killing then that officer who pulled the trigger deserves just as much shade tossed his way as Darren Wilson.

The color of his skin or the badge he is wearing does not give him the right to unjustifiably take the life of another human being.

If it turns out to be a justifiable shoot I will take it all back.

At least as it relates to this particular officer. Not the other house Negroes running around with a gun and a badge.

This ODS (Obama derangement syndrome) is no joke. And here I thought that the folks over at The National Review were the smartest of the wingnut lot.
William F. Buckley, Jr., the intellectual racist, must be turning over in his grave.

Sarah Palin blaming the media and Obama for her daughter's potentially criminal behavior I can understand. Let's face it, she is not too bright. But this kind of rhetoric coming from a so called intellectual is surprising.

I never heard of Jim Geraghty before, and after reading what he had to write for National Review I am glad I didn't.  

This genius actually said that Barack Obama is to blame for the NFL's domestic violence problem.

  "Jim Geraghty, an editor at the conservative National Review wonders if it’s possible that the recent scandals rocking the NFL might in some way be traced to President Barack Obama.

“Does our president just reflect a broad cultural trend in the behavior of leaders,” Geraghty wrote Monday, “or does he set the tone from the top?”
From there, Geraghty goes on to chronicle a number of national scandals, like the IRS’s alleged targeting of conservative groups and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodel‘s botched response to a rash of misconduct within the league:
… Goodell told CBS This Morning he never saw the second tape of Rice striking his wife before Monday. He said, “when we make a decision we want to have all the information that’s available. When we met with Ray Rice and his representatives it was ambiguous about what actually happened.” Friday afternoon, he announced the league would be making a new effort in dealing with unacceptable player conduct . . . by forming a special committee. …
The country feels deeply betrayed by its governing and economic elites. Enter Obama. He’s elected. … 
And you know what we got. Stimulus waste; State Department employees on paid leave over Benghazi; “At this point, what difference does it make?”; the VA, where the secretary belatedly discovered an “unacceptable lack of integrity within some of our veterans health facilities,” Obamacare, where Kathleen Sebelius let the president go out and say things about the website she knew weren’t true, and still kept her job for several months. The NSA.
Geraghty concludes: “The message has been sent, far and wide: Accountability is for suckers.” [Source] 

Just wow.

Let's give conservatives a gold medal for the shark jumping event in the clueless Olympics.

My man even threw in a Benghazi reference for good measure. He made sure that there is enough red meat for all the hungry ODS sufferers out there.

I can only hope that their coverage under Obamacare will help them pay for a cure.

Less than human.

May this face haunt Robert Benchley's dreams foreverIt's hard for me, a black man, to understand some folks in the majority population and the indifference they feel about their fellow countrymen who happen to be black.

I just read somewhere that white people can't really help themselves. That it's sort of a subconscious condition that is brought on by their own "color aroused" issues, and that it manifests itself no matter how well intentioned they are.

I am thinking of the governor of Alabama as I write this post.

His response to the tragic death of a little 8 year old girl was stunning in its level of insensitivity and ignorance.

"Thursday, after a search coordinated by local police and the FBI, as well as volunteers from the community, Hiawayi’s body was found behind an abandoned building. Police are investigating her death as a homicide, in conjunction with the FBI; no cause of death or possible suspects have been announced.

When reporters asked Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley to comment on the news that Hiawayi’s body had been found, these were the words of comfort and support he had for Hiawayi’s family:*

“There are things that happen we just don’t understand. There are difficulties in families. We don’t know, maybe drug related. Maybe alcohol related. Maybe family problems. We just don’t know what the situation is.” 
Bentley added he needs to do everything he can to make families more sound.
What a peach. A child goes missing, her family is frantic and organizing a search for her, and the governor’s first thought when her body is found is to shake his head and pontificate on the sad, sad state of the Black Family In America Today. And let’s keep in mind that absolutely no one in law enforcement has said anything to suggest that Haiwayi’s family had anything to do with her abduction and killing. Needless to say, people in Alabama are Not Happy.

Gov. Bentley has not yet replied to press queries about his comments Thursday (see update below), but on Friday, he abruptly offered a $5000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a suspect and has issued a written statement saying something rather different from his earlier comments about the sad family with its possible drug and alcohol problems:
“Dianne and I were heartbroken to learn of the tragic death of this innocent child. We have been praying and following the situation closely, and our prayers for comfort are with Hiawayi’s family.
“We won’t rest until this little girl’s killer is brought to justice. Alabama’s state law enforcement agencies have been actively assisting the Prichard Police Department in the investigation into the death of Hiawayi Robinson. I directed the Secretary of the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, Spencer Collier, to go to Prichard and offer any resources needed. As soon as Hiawayi was reported missing, we sent 10 State Bureau of Investigation agents to Prichard, and our Trooper Aviation Unit also assisted in helping to find Hiawayi. Those agents will remain in Prichard until a suspect has been arrested. Furthermore, I’ve directed an increased presence of state troopers in Prichard until the person who committed this terrible act has been found.”

Of course the governor changed his stance after outside pressure helped to soothe his conscience.

But as the writer in Wonkette eloquently stated, the governor would have had something quite different to say if little blond 8 year old Hannah had been murdered in such a fashion.

"And yes, we are bloody well playing the race card. Anyone who thinks Gov. Bentley or any politician would say the same thing if an 8-year-old white girl went missing and was found murdered is a fool. Don’t worry, we’re already taking bets on which Fox News anchor will insist that Bentley’s comments had nothing to do with race." [Source] (h/t Dena for this story) 

Finally, I didn't want to blog about this next story, but.......OK I am going to go ahead and blog about it.

There is this woman in Florida, who, thanks to plastic surgery, now has three breasts.

I will not post her picture on this site, but one of you sickos who gets off on such things can click on this link to see just what a woman with three breasts happens to look like.

"A massage therapist claims to have undergone plastic surgery to obtain a third breast.

Jasmine Tridevil (not her real name) says she had the surgery “a few months ago” and is now hell bent on starring in her own reality TV show.

The 21-year-old has hired a camera crew to follow her around and hopes to pitch her show to MTV. Writing on her Facebook page, she says she has upcoming appearances on the Jimmy Kimmel show and the Inside Edition."

Lord have mercy! This is just sick.

And no, I would not feel any different if this woman had plastic surgery to add another ass.

That would be just as sick....I think.

Are their hearts really into it?

I wouldn't blame President Obama if he was feeling a little nervous these days.

There have been two attempted break-ins into his home over the past few days.
That would make anybody nervous, but if you happen to be the first Negro president of these divided states of America, it's enough to make you think twice before you go anywhere near John Q Public.

I know that the President has Secret Service protections, but let's face it; I am not sure that their hearts are really into it. (I bet there are a lot of FOX viewers in their ranks.)

Anyway, the boys in the dark suits are being criticized once again for slipping on the job. And you have to wonder if this time their critics aren't on to something.

"Never before has an intruder on the grounds managed to enter the White House itself," said Ronald Kessler, author of a recent book that is very critical of the Secret Service. "The incident on Friday evening is the most shocking example yet of how dangerously lax the Secret Service has become, failing at its most basic job - to protect the president and first family in the White House."

Pretty much every Negro in America is thinking the same thing: This wouldn't be happening if the family occupying 1600 Pennsylvania, Avenue looked more like the Nelsons and less like the Huxtables. 

I can't blame Negroes for their angst and concerns. The hatred for this particular president runs deep.

"A Secret Service official told CBS News that the agency would look into all of the factors that prompted agents on the scene to decide against using force to prevent the man from entering the residence.

"They showed restraint," the official said. "But we're not happy with where he was arrested. That cannot happen."

I am sure the Obamas aren't happy, either. That man was in their house for crying out loud!

I know that they will be gone in a couple of years, but for now, it is still their house. And they, like every other American, should feel safe while they are there.

Uniformed Secret Service officers walk along the lawn on the North side of the White House in Washington, Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014.

Keep looking. The president said he chipped it with a 9 -iron out here somewhere.

To shake or not to shake....

You don't always have to chase racism; sometimes racism chases you.

My homie, Marc Lamont Hill, found that out in a very bizarre way, recently.

"CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill had an encounter of the racist kind while at a sports bar in Detroit, according to a series of tweets he sent out Friday.

As Hill tells it, he was at Sporting News Grill in Detroit Thursday night when an “old white guy” approached him and his company to ask, “What are you blacks doing here?”

Hill said the man stuck his hand out for a handshake. “So, me and the people I’m with are looking like we’re getting punked,” Hill tweeted. He said the man then asked for a handshake, which Hill declined. “Nah.”

Then, the CNN contributor said a group of white people nearby told the potentially drunk patron to leave the restaurant. “Get out of here, Henry,” Hill recalled them saying, “You’re embarrassing all of us.”

“Apparently, Henry had been using the n-word all night,” Hill tweeted. “We just didn’t hear him. They told the server what happened and they made him leave.”
In Hill’s final tweet on the matter, he said he wasn’t angry, calling the situation


“But I appreciate the white customers for saying something,” he concluded. “It matters.”

Mediaite reached out to Sporting News Grill for comment. The manager we spoke with, who deserves a raise for how polite and concerned she was on the phone, said she was not working at the time of the alleged incident but that she would look into it and get back to us.

We’ve also reached out to Hill for more details, like whether the possibly racist man smelled like booze and whether Hill alerted management." [Source]

Yes, "bizarre" indeed.

Just some "old white guy" being true to himself after a few drinks.

Still, I take issue with Hill making the regulars in the grill look like they had a "profile in courage" moment.

They obviously knew the guy.

I wonder how many nights he dropped the n-word to the crowd while they laughed and downed Coronas? Henry was apparently dropping the n-word out of earshot of Hill and his crew on this particular night as well.

The only reason that "group of white people" told old Henry to leave was because he was "embarrassing" them, not because he was making a group of people feel like they didn't belong and that he was being an ignorant racist.

“But I appreciate the white customers for saying something,” he concluded. “It matters.”

I don't. Not if the only reason they said "something" was because the Negroes were there. I would really appreciate them saying "something" on the nights when Henry goes all David Duke and there are no Negroes in the house.

That's what would really matter, Marc. Not acting a certain way for the sake of political correctness.

Southern discomfort.

Folks are going crazy in the South these days.

I don't ever remember reading about so many killers taking out their own family members and loved ones in such large numbers in one part of the country.

I wonder what is responsible for this phenomenon.

We all know the story by now of Timothy Ray Jones Jr., the animal who allegedly killed his five children and dumped their bodies in a trash bag. (I think he was from Alabama.)

And now we have Don Spirit. This animal who was masquerading as a human being allegedly killed his adult daughter, five grandchildren, and one other child.

 "A man in Bell shot and killed his daughter and six grandchildren before turning the gun on himself Thursday afternoon in a small town about an hour west of Gainesville.

The Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office confirmed the gruesome details in a press conference Thursday night.

Gilchrist County Sheriff Robert Schulz said Don Spirit is the man responsible for the slayings.

Schulz said deputies were called to the rural home on around 4 p.m. after Spirit called 911 and threatened to harm himself and others. When deputies arrived, Spirit committed suicide, Schulz said. GCSO believes the victims were already dead when officers arrived." [Source]

I am against the death penalty when it is carried out by the state. But if someone like this wants to go ahead and sentence himself to death and then carry out the sentence, well...

Sadly, this kind of stuff happens in places like Florida far too often. It's a dog bites man story down there.

And before my white friends accuse me of being a "racialist"; please note that I am mentioning the story a depraved Negro named George Mason III as well.

This Negro killed three family members and tried to kill a fourth before being taken out by a truck.

"A Florida man killed three relatives Friday and tried to gun down a fourth when a passing truck ran over the murderer, halting his rampage, police said.

George Mason III, 42, is clinging to life after being struck in the middle of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in the town of Brooksville as he chased after his half-brother, Gabriel Taylor, 33.

Taylor was shot several times, including once in the head, and is in critical condition, police said." [Source]

Florida again.

There must be something in the water.

White collar [color] crimes.

We have some real hooligans and thugs acting up in Pistolvania these days.

First, an out of control urban mob beat a couple of Gay guys silly here in Center City, Philadelphia.

And in Northeast, Pistolvania some guy killed a state trooper and seriously injured his partner because he doesn't like cops.

As the trolls who visit this site are always quick to tell me: America has a Negro problem.

But wait.......

"A Philadelphia gay couple are still reeling after allegedly being attacked and beaten in what's been described as a possible hate crime last week.
The men, who have reportedly asked to remain anonymous, told CBS Philadelphia that they were reportedly attacked by a "well-dressed" and intoxicated mob that began taunting the men while they were on their way to dinner.

According to Queerty, two men and six women allegedly assaulted the men, ages 27 and 28, after asking the pair first if they were "fucking boyfriends" and then if they were "dirty fags."

One victim suffered a bone fracture in his face that will require surgery, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

View image on TwitterThough police remained skeptical at first as to the true motivations of the crime, the case is now being handled as a hate crime.

"It was a bunch of screams at first," witness Geoff Nagle told reporters. "...a lot of punching and kicking." One of the victims stated that he thought his partner was dead after the attackers "threw his head onto the ground.”

The suspects are still at large -- "

Well, thanks to social media, not for long.

Apparently they left an upscale eatery and had a little too much to drink.

But alas, they were not Negroes.

And apparently neither is this next guy.

"Hundreds of law enforcement officers continue to search for the man police say ambushed and shot two Pennsylvania state troopers last week, killing one and seriously injuring the other. As the search for the suspected shooter entered its sixth day Wednesday, schools in the area announced that they were canceling classes in response.
Police in Pennsylvania on Tuesday identified Eric Matthew Frein, 31, as the suspect they had charged with the shootings. Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan said that Frein is “armed and extremely dangerous,” describing him as a highly-trained survivalist who has expressed a desire to kill police officers and other people.

“He has made statements about wanting to kill law enforcement officers'".

When I read about a "survivalist" who likes to kill people a red flag goes off.

Negroes in Pistolvania please lock your doors.

"Court documents revealed Tuesday that investigators found an Army manual called “Sniper Training and Employment” in Frein’s bedroom at the home where he lived with his parents a few miles from the state police barracks where the shootings occurred.

The suspect’s father, an Army veteran, told police that his son was an excellent marksman, who “doesn’t miss.”' [Source]

Lord have mercy!

Let me revise that warning: Lock your doors and don't go anywhere near your windows.

This is not how it went down in Pretty Woman.

It's tough being a sister out here these days. Even professional sisters who are just out on the town and trying to kick back get profiled and embarrassed.

First it was Daniele Watts, now it's Kantaki Washington and her friends who were mistaken for ladies of the night.

''In an interview with AlterNet, New York City lawyer Kantaki Washington claimed that she and two friends — all three black women — were having drinks at the Standard Hotel bar in the Meatpacking District back in August when security approached them and accused them of “soliciting.”

At first, Washington said she did not know what the man meant, asking him, “Soliciting what?” When he persists, she said she replied, “Dude, I’m a lawyer and these women are educators. Why the hell would I be in here soliciting prostitution?” [Source]

Because you are black Miss. That's why. *sarcasm off*

"Following the incident, Washington received an email from the hotel offering her a bottle of champagne and dinner for four at The Standard Grill as an apology with not addressing the specifics of the offense. She told the site she believes she and her friends were racially profiled."

Gee, ya think?

Ms. Washington, of course you were racially profiled. Just because you live in New York City doesn't mean that you are immune from the ignorance and "color aroused" thinking that is associated with the South.

The same can be said for Ms. Watts. She was given the business in very liberal -and very blue- Los Angeles. It doesn't really matter where you are in the land of the free, at any moment you can get a reality check from a color aroused asshole.

BTW, Ms. Watts, because she lives in California, was under no obligation to show that police officer in Los Angeles her ID just because he demanded it. And those women in New York had every right to be offended when some hotel security guard accused them of being prostitutes.

The hotel offered Ms. Washington a bottle of champagne and dinner for four for her troubles.

If only it was that easy to make the pain and humiliation that these women were subjected to go away.

"A history of violence"

A long time ago when I was a single man and getting my party on, I tried to hook up with a beautiful sister while partying in another country.

I approached her and tried to make small talk, but before I could even ask her name she asked me if I was an American. I asked her why she asked, and she said that it was because I looked and dressed like an American.

I told her that I was born and raised in Jamaica, but yes, guilty as charged, I now make my home in America.

"I don't like American guys", she said, "You all are too macho and into that John Wayne culture. Look at your favorite games: Football; hockey; boxing; and stuff like that." (OK, that was awhile ago, and we don't even do the "boxing" thing that much anymore. It's more like MMA these days. But I get what she was trying to say.)

I was thinking of how I struck out with that Nubian yesterday, as I listened to pundit after pundit talk about the NFL's violence problem.

Let's face it, whether it's against children, or against women, the NFL now has a huge problem on its very well paid hands.

The good news for them is, though, that like that sister in the club in Bermuda was saying; Americans embrace violence, and football brings it for 16  games every year. That kind of passion just doesn't go away overnight. Throw in all the gambling that goes along with it and you have the perfect storm.  

The NFL knows this, and they have the billions to back it up.

For now, Roger Goodell and the boys will just ride out this storm, because they know that at the end of the day, Americans love their controlled violence and mayhem. They know that the same people pontificating and sermonizing on television about all the terrible things that the NFL is doing, will be offering their insight into Tom Brady's lack of an offensive line or Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense in a few weeks.

 I am thinking about that young lady in Hamilton, Bermuda again. I wonder what she did with her life.

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if she married some dude who played in the NFL.

When white privilege can go wrong.

Man the police have really been on a roll lately.

Apparently it's not only black men who get the business from folks who swear "to protect and serve"; it seems that black women have been catching it as well.

Now comes another story from Los Angeles where a sister was profiled and arrested for....wait for it...showing public displays of affection with her white husband.

"Django Unchained" actress Daniele Watts says she was accosted by police and handcuffed on Thursday in Los Angeles after being mistaken for a prostitute.Watts, who played house slave "CoCo" in "Django" and is Martin Lawrence's daughter on the new FX comedy "Partners," shared the news on Facebook.

"Today I was handcuffed and detained by 2 police officers from the Studio City Police Department after refusing to agree that I had done something wrong by showing affection, fully clothed, in a public place," she wrote.

Watts also posted a picture of herself sobbing as she stood in front of an office in shorts, a t-shirt, and running shoes.

An LAPD public information officer said there was no record of the incident as Watts wasn't arrested or brought into the station for questioning.

According to Watts and her husband Brian James Lucas, Studio City police mistook the couple for a prostitute and john after they showed public displays of affection. Watts refused to show her ID to the cops, and was therefore handcuffed and seated in the back of their car until they could figure out who she was. They let her go quickly afterward." [Source]

The message here is this: Sisters, if you are married to (or dating) a white man, be very careful how you interact with him in public; sadly, you could be mistaken for a prostitute.

Her poor husband got a white privilege reality check. I am not sure that he signed up for this when he linked up with this sister, but now he knows.

Another white person now understands what it feels like to have white privilege go wrong. Like the husband of Daniele Watts, her situation was brought on by her interaction with Negroes.

"SARATOGA SPRINGS, Utah (AP) — A woman has criticized police in the Utah County city of Saratoga Springs over the fatal shooting of her 22-year-old son, saying she believes the outcome would have been different had he not been black.

Susan Hunt of Saratoga Springs said her family wants answers about what happened leading up to Wednesday's shooting by officers of her son, Darrien Hunt.

On Saturday afternoon, law enforcement authorities issued a statement saying that the man lunged at officers with a sword.

The Deseret News reported that police say they were called about 9:40 a.m. Wednesday to investigate a "suspicious" man walking near businesses along Redwood Road while carrying a "Samurai-type sword."

Before the statement was issued, Susan Hunt told the Deseret News: "They killed my son because he's black. No white boy with a little sword would they shoot while he's running away.

"Those stupid cops thought they had to murder over a toy. This is my baby. This is my family. And they ruined my family."

The city on Friday issued a statement saying the shooting was under investigation by the county attorney's office.

"We sympathize with Mr. Hunt's family during this difficult time," the statement says. "Any claim that our officers' actions were a result of Mr. Hunt's race is completely unfounded and speculative. Our officers responded to a call for service and addressed the situation that was presented to them."

Based on the limited information the family has been given, Susan Hunt said, it believes a shot was fired by police during the confrontation and multiple shots were fired after he ran away."

"When the officers made contact with Mr. Hunt, he brandished the sword and lunged toward the officers with the sword, at which time Mr. Hunt was shot," Utah County Chief Deputy Attorney Tim Taylor said in a statement. [Source]  

Ms. Hunt, welcome to our world. Please keep talking about your experience to white America. Maybe they will understand what it's like a little better if it's coming from you.

I must confess that when I saw this headline: "Sarah Palin: I owe America A Global Apology" , I thought that the conservative Queen was referring to her recent shenanigans up in Alaska.

Of course I was wrong. Sarah was lamenting the fact that she and her running mate did not defeat Barack Obama.

"During an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, Palin spoke about Obama's long-term strategy for defeating the Islamic State -- a militant group formerly known as ISIS or ISIL -- that he laid out in a speech Wednesday night.
"As I watched the speech last night, Sean, the thought going through my mind is, 'I owe America a global apology. Because John McCain, through all of this, John McCain should be our president,'"

Sarah, with all due respect, you should be "apologizing" to America and your fans for that brawl you and your family were involved in.

 "Since her ill-fated 2008 run for vice-president, Sarah Palin and her family have been a constant television presence, appearing in their own reality show and, more recently, on her very own Sarah Palin channel.

The most dramatic recent chapter in the Palin story appears, however, to be documented only by witness accounts – and an evolving police report. Alaska authorities are considering filing criminal charges related to a large fistfight said to involve multiple members of the family in the Overview neighbourhood of Anchorage last Saturday night.

Palin family members were present at a party where 20 people ended up in an alcohol-fuelled melee in the front yard, police spokeswoman Jennifer Castro told the Alaska Dispatch News.

Sarah Palin herself got in on the action, ABC News reported in an interview with a party attendee, who quoted the former governor as screaming at unknown combatants: “Do you know who I am?!”

Palin was the 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee and currently is host of Amazing America with Sarah Palin on the Sportsman Channel. She and husband Todd are the parents of five children, at least two of whom were central protagonists in the weekend brawl, according to Alaska politics blogger Amanda Coyne, who wrote:
The owner of the house gets involved, and he probably wished he hadn’t. At this point, he’s up against nearly the whole Palin tribe: Palin women screaming. Palin men thumping their chests. Word is that [daughter] Bristol has a particularly strong right hook, which she employed repeatedly.  
The Anchorage police department confirmed on Thursday that a “verbal and physical altercation” had taken place outside the residence, where a party was being held in part to celebrate Todd Palin’s 50th birthday.

“We are still reviewing the case, along with our municipal attorney’s office to determine whether any charges will be filed,” Castro, the police spokeswoman, told the Alaska paper in an email.

“A preliminary investigation by police revealed that a party had been taking place at a nearby residence and a fight had broken out between multiple subjects outside of the residence,” she added."

Oh lawd! That white trash mojo is strong.

Thank goodness we didn't send these classless benighted hillbillies to Washington.

The good news for Sarah's fans is that she now has her own channel. And, for a small fee, they can watch her until their heart's content.

 "..in which the former vice presidential candidate reportedly screamed, 'Don’t you know who I am?”'

That's the problem Sarah; we know exactly who you are.
