You know why we won't get reparations? Because these dog-haired Europeans never accepted us as full human beings! We have dark skin and the hair of sheep. When they went to Africa, they looked down upon us as some kind of Humanoid King Kongs. To them, we're related to simians. That's our WHOLE problem in the United States. It is firmly entrenched from their birth to hate, disrespect and brutalize in any way possible, because they can and do. They've been doing it for 5 centuries and will...

What's wrong with this picture? Trey Radel, Florida House of Representatives, Republican, white male admits to being a habitual illegal drug(cocaine) user. Punishment: None, so far (except for cries for him to resign). Most likely, he will be forced to undergo treatment for his 'disorder' and will be placed on probation. Outlook: Bright. No problem getting a job in the future. Will still be able to vote and engage in blatant hypocrisy (among other shenanigans). John Doe, random person in...

Our ancestors were originally promised 40 acres and a mule . As our Native American brothers and sisters would say, 'White man speaks with forked tongue.' Interest has been accruing. There were 36,419,434 black Americans counted in the 2010 census. We are now owed over 36,419,434 mules and over 1,456,777,360 acres of land (or 227,621.4 square miles, about the size of Texas ). Our tax dollars helped pay for reparations to American citizens of Japanese descent unjustly forced into...

The "rules" and "laws" are devised and written by them so that the "subhuman wooly-haired" Human Zoos can be filled to the maximum to keep the slave labor in continuation, so that they can make those billions needed to claim this is the "Greatest Country" in the whole wide world!!! Isaac Hayes showed us how beautiful the African male body is wrapped head to waist in chains.

The whole war on drugs is misguided. I think the incarceration of drug addicts and for small amounts of drugs serves no meaningful purpose and drains budgets and ties up the police. But remember....In the beginning, it was black people and the Congressional Black Caucus that pushed for these stiff crack sentencing laws. But when they saw the hammer of sentencing people for crack possession was disproportionately black… they began back peddling. In 1995, the Sentencing Commission (made up of...

Listener: The chase after the "Drug Kingpin" or lack there of IS NOT GOING TO CHANGE THE FACTS ON THE GROUND. The fact is - THERE IS A BIG DEMAND FOR and thus BIG MONEY IN the drug distribution game. The onus needs to be placed upon the DRUG USER and the SMALL TIME DRUG DEALER to make note of the RISKS of their consumption of or distribution of drugs. If MORE WHITE FOLKS were arrested for drugs OR if fewer BLACK FOLKS WERE ARRESTED --------would this change a DAMNED THING WITHIN THE BLACK...

Our nation can’t thrive when it’s locking up more people than any other country in the world. Harsh sentences for non-violent offenses are breaking up families and taking away people’s basic rights. And this disproportionately affects poor people and...

But survivors of all backgrounds want a much wider array of solutions than those offered in our current punitive system, which only creates a revolving door of crime and recidivism. Part one of this two-part series Why...
