Most people have experienced a racist person but this Asian man takes the cake. The Asian man admits to being a racist and then proceeds to tell the Black, "This is a no nigg*r zone." The audacity of some of these people is quite astounding. The Black man threatens to put hands on the man but he chooses otherwise. Peep the clip.
You have to love educated people. This gentlemen in this Tik Tok video took a few seconds to break down why White people asking how come they can't have White pride while Black people can say Black pride or Black power without it being considered racist. Someone find this gentleman and let him know is knowledge of the subject is appreciated.
How many times have we witnessed on camera some Black person being shot and killed by an officer for running away, selling CD's, sitting in car, or just being Black? That is a rhetorical question of course. When these situations occur, many always say the officers need more training and I agree, however, it seems as if they actually are in some circumstances. In this video the officer was stabbed and probably would have been cleared of any wrongdoing if he had indeed, fired his gun.
Remote learning and teaching is the new normal for many students and teachers. One thing teachers are starting to realize is that parents can now hear and see what their children are learning if they happened to be in the same room as them. This teacher learned the hard way. After telling her students, George Floyd shouldn't be honored, a concerned mom took over the Zoom call and let the teacher know she wasn't having it.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34qNFIH3vCE"They, [BLM], just want black lives to matter as much as white lives" (Bruce Western, Sociologist, Columbia University). Of course, all lives matter. But, maybe some not as much as others? In which case, not all lives really matter. That's how America has been treating black (and brown) folks throughout her history. In this video we explore the history of the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as systemic racism.
As off now, we are still waiting on the officers who shot and killed Breonna Taylor to be arrested. A Grand Jury is currently meeting to determine their fate but at least the family has been compensated via a settlement of $12 Million. There isn't enough money to make up for that atrocity or any of the atrocities commited against Black people and other people of color in this courntry. Police brutality and systemic racism still run rampant in this country and it truly needs to end.
A Black Mother in Elk Grove California was not having it with this female officer. Her son was pulled over in front of their house for running a stop sign. He had all the proper paperwork but the officer refused to run the information and kept inquiring if the son was on probation or parole. The officer literally gets into a stand-off with the mother and father of the son because she refused to walk away and write the ticket for running the stop sign.
Director Spike Lee revealed a new version of Michael Jackson's "They Don't Care About Us" short film during his annual Brooklyn Loves Michael Jackson block party celebrating the King of Pop's birthday, which this year took place virtually. Just think about that for a second - we are living in a time where we can't have a block party safely. The MJ celebration has been epic for years and this year due to COVID-19, Spike Lee had to take the party to the internet.

It is truly rough out here in these streets for Black people when it comes to systemic racism and police brutality. We all know the conversation Black parents have to have with their children about interacting with the cops. Police brutality is dominating the news cycle. Robert Horry now joins the list of Black men becoming emotional on television when talking about the attempted murder of Jacob Blake and the countless other Black victims that have died by the hands of police.
CHICAGO, IL - APRIL 11: Dick Gregory attends the Roger Ebert Memorial Tribute at Chicago Theatre on April 11, 2013 in Chicago, Illinois. (Photo by Timothy Hiatt/Getty Images)It's been three years since the legendary comedian and activist Dick Gregory has been dead but his words are still ringing true today. With another public lynching of sorts of an unarmed Black man, Jacob Blake, who at least lived but is paralyzed at the moment, people are pissed and screaming for police reform. Blake was shot 7 times
In this country we can't help but to talk about the day one problem of systemic racism, prejudice, bias, and every other ism that exists. The problems still persist and Black people are still getting shot by police disproportionately than our White counterparts. Just look at the attempted murder on Jacob Blake by Kenosha, WI cops. Let's not forget the inequities in the work place, the school system, the criminal justice system, the housing market - you get it. People of color in the United States often don't feel the unification as the name of the country connotates.

The NBA made it’s return on Thursday, it’s in a “bubble” but it’s back. Leading up to the games there was much talk about using the NBA’s platform to fight for justice, against racism and against police brutality. This talk included jersey names, signage and messaging throughout the gym and kneeling during the anthem.One player who chose not to kneel or wear the Black Lives Matter t-shirt was Orlando Magic’s Jonathan Isaac. Isaac is an ordained minister and he said the following, “Putting that shirt on and kneeling wasn’t hand in hand on supporting Black lives or made me support Black lives or not. I believe that my life is supported through the gospel, through Jesus Christ and that everyone is made in the image of God and we all fall short of God’s glory.” Interesting explanation, but he had the support of his teammates.The Miami Heat’s Meyers Leonard also stood during the anthem and he had this to say about it, “I am a compassionate human being and I truly love all people ‘If you’re not kneeling, you’re not with us.’ And that’s not true. I will continue to use my platform, my voice and my actions to show how much I care about the African American culture and for everyone.”Spurs’ coaches Gregg Popovich and Becky Hammon also stood for the anthem. Popovich said his decision to stand was personal and he will keep it to himself. He has always been outspoken on issues of race and human rights.Who is to say what is right or what is wrong when it comes to your personal protest? The country is watching the NBA and the platform is there, so use it wisely. Instead of only focusing on who is wearing what or kneeling or not; we can focus on bringing change to policies that allow police to escape from prosecution after murdering Black citizens. Yes, kneeling is a protest against police brutality, it is not the only way to do it. Therefore, if a person believes in the cause and supports it, but chooses to do it in a different way should they be vilified? There are other villains for us to focus our attention.
