We're all individuals, I've said that already. Mr. Johnson went to Afghanistan to war. He's probably killed a few with the United States blessings. He came home, probably more than a little shell shocked from what he'd seen. Dead bodies, explosions, people shredded into spaghetti, women, men, babies, buildings blown up. Heaps of "America's" "Vets" end up HOMELESS after going through that mess, when they come "home". He sees that two black men were shot for absolutely no reason. His mind's...

As long as the American majority refuses to accept that too may psychopaths and sociopaths have been given positions of power and 'authority' , and that America's racism problems stem from that FACT , racism is not going to ever end in this country, and racism, along with all of the other pathologies of psychopaths and sociopaths being socially normalized and legally codified into America's social, governmental, and political structure, i s going to be the means to America's end .

We are currently dealing with a repeat of Jim Crow, 1917 was a bit after the reconstruction period which failed African Americans big time and caused them to targeted like they were when they were slaves. It is the same today. Nothing's change as why I scream at the top of my lungs for black folks to learn American and World history....cuz then they will KNOW exactly where they stand today. Bottom line. But!

Thanks for posting this. Not only should this be brought up, these incidents should be made into sober film documentaries to educate the nation. The Jews do this. Why is no one intensively doing this as regards these genocidal acts?

Dr. Umar Jackson is on but not always. Here’s an example – and he has others - where changing the actual facts to serve a narrative – is not good. When the “Stonewall Riots” happened, it was a blip and did not shift the nation’s attention from Black Rights to Gay Rights, no way. He’s factually wrong. That is more what’s happening now.

Also . . . Dr. Umar Jackson’s conclusions are not absolutes. Multi-cultural coalitions can be practical and effective. I know a company founded by two connected brothas who own 70% of the company. They hired in 2 white guys to do operations and marketing, an Indian guy to oversee IT and a Chinese guy who speaks the language. They do import and export biz in China. They call the shots. They earn the most in the company. They do okay in today's global biz arena.

Yeah, he’s 100% on Fred Hampton and George Jackson. He also regularly mixes facts with hearsay to veer off into his own conclusions. He undermines himself. Sometimes he’s on and other times he goes way off. If he stuck much closer to reality he'd be more powerful.
