Tarboro NC – Grand jury indicts Pittman

An Edgecombe County grand jury determined Tuesday the state has enough evidence to move forward with its first-degree murder case against 31-year-old Antwan Maurice Pittman.

Pittman, a Rocky Mount man, is accused of strangling 28-year-old Taraha Shenice Nicholson earlier this year and dumping her body in the woods in a rural stretch of Edgecombe County, about a mile outside Rocky Mount. (The Rocky Mount Telegram)

Racial Justice Act – What Tom Keith really thinks about the Racial Justice Act

Quote: “The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.” Albert Einstein 

I am glad to see some Pastors stepping up to the plate. C. Dancy II – DCN Publisher

For North Carolinians who ever questioned the Racial Justice Act, Tom Keith is Exhibit A.

Keith, the district attorney for Forsyth County, is always quick to make a case against the new law that allows criminals on death row a chance to have their convictions overturned if they can prove race played a part in their conviction.. (The Progressive Pulse)


Speaking Truth To Power – President Obama Speech to Students

So what was the damn problem with this speech? I didn’t read it yesterday because I wanted to see it on video since I would be at work during the time it would be shown live. The message was right on target. C. Dancy II – DCN Publisher

Racism – Speak Up on Van Jones’ Resignation

Dear Friends, Colleagues and Supporters,

Watch the video

1. Watch the video
2. Speak Up!

This weekend, an environmental justice hero resigned from the White House. Van Jones was the victim of a vicious smear campaign led by FOX News hatemonger Glenn Beck.
Van’s career as a voice for the poor is legendary, which is why Beck sought to destroy his career in the Obama administration.
To see who the real Van Jones is, watch this video from our series "This Brave Nation"
We can never allow this to happen again. FOX will continue its witch hunt. We must be prepared to speak out and fight back. We want to hear from you.
Join our Facebook page to help Brave New Foundation strategize how to resist the rightwing smear machine.

Racism – Van Jones Wanted to Bring Green Jobs, but Had to Fight Back Against Glenn Beck for BuzzFlash’s Wings of Justice Award

Van Jones is in the news for resigning his post as Special Advisor for Green Jobs at the Council on Environmental Quality. Jones was the victim of a smear attack by lack-of-credibility-laden Glenn Beck, solely because Beck was the target of an advertising boycott by ColorofChange.org, a group Jones founded in 2005, after Beck claimed that Obama is a racist.
