The Political Agitator response: But them damn jokes though. Check them out at the end of the article. As soon as the truth be made known in Ferguson and other places, the better off we will be. Some folks are in denial or just don’t give a damn about what is actually going on in America as it relates to the BLACK FOLKS. But then some folks act like they don’t know why some black folks act like they do. Well I get it. I am not asleep! I am not dreaming! I know what time it is! Folks this is why some white folks don’t want black folks in office because things get revealed. Some white folks don’t want black folks in office because they are afraid that some black folks are going to stir up some stuff. Well hell the truth need to be stirred up! The truth will set us all free however I came to the conclusion a several years ago that some folks don’t want to be. Well I ain’t the one!
The probe is the result of an investigation ordered by Attorney General Eric Holder after the police shooting that killed Michael Brown last summer.
Among the findings, reviewed by CNN: from 2012 to 2014, 85% of people subject to vehicle stops by Ferguson police were African-American; 90% of those who received citations were black; and 93% of people arrested were black. This while 67% of the Ferguson population is black.
In 88% of the cases in which the Ferguson police reported using force, it was against African-Americans. During the period 2012-2014 black drivers were twice as likely as white drivers to be searched during traffic stops, but 26% less likely to be found in possession of contraband.
Blacks were disproportionately more likely to be cited for minor infractions: 95% of tickets for “manner of walking in roadway,” essentially jaywalking, were against African-Americans. Also, 94% of all “failure to comply” charges were filed against black people. (Source: Read more)
Sometimes I am misunderstood because of my love for people. The older I get the less mess I will tolerate especially when it directly affect me. So when you come after me, come correct because I don’t play when it comes to dealing with people lives. I don’t play with people lives and I am not going to allow you to either because my ignant a… gonna call you out. Folks I ain’t there yet but I strive daily to get there. This is a cold world out here and folks are just nasty.
I say what I mean and mean what I say. I can be your best friend or your worst nightmare. I don’t bother anyone. I will help a stranger inspite of all that I am going through. It may look like I ain’t going through but you see you don’t know my story. I know there are others that are in worst shape than I. It could be worse for me but I truly believe that because I know it ain’t about me that the Good Master allow me to see another day. I know who I am and whose I am so if you have a problem with that, don’t take it up with me talk to the man. I am going to continue to do his will.
Now Run & Tell That!
On February 28th 2015, 4 kids unexpectedly had their hero taken away from them. Their father George Dickens Jr. was fatally shot at his place of business. Four kids ages 16, 14, 5 & 3 lives have been forever changed.
George was well known throughout his community as a local barber and well known from state to state as a music writer, producer and artist.
Our goal is to provide some support and assistance for his kids. George was a family man. He put time in with his wife and kids & while nothing outside of him being here can replace that, the plans & dreams he had for them should still be carried out in his honor. In his honor we can all help make this possible.
