Tell Walmart: Release the Tapes Last month, John Crawford III was killed by police while shopping in a Walmart store. Police were called to the store by another customer who described a “Black male about 6 feet tall” waving a gun. Crawford was actually leaning on a toy pellet gun — barrel pointed down — which he had picked up from one of the store’s shelves. Walmart has video surveillance footage of the events but has refused repeated requests from John Crawford's family to publicly release...

Re: Spies of Mississippi: The State-Sponsored Campaign to Defeat the Civil Rights Movement

Very Nice! I did some personal research about the Mississippi Sovereignty Commission a few years ago. It was a shocking but factual attempt by white government officials to derail the black human/civil rights movement in the state of Mississippi. I would advise anyone interested in learning about state sanctioned efforts to curtail or stop blacks from receiving their constitutional civil rights, to see the video or do on line research....

Re: Major Corporations Divest nearly $60m from Private Prison Industry After Pressure from Civil Rights Group

GoodMan ·
The Prison Industry is a good industry to invest in. If a strong percentage of Black people are in prison, the best thing to do would be to encourage private prisons and Black corporations invest in it to control the prisons and provide better living conditions and work opportunity by giving them jobs in prisons and dictating what prisons should be like. This is a step backwards. Instead of trying to prevent corporations from investing, should told them what to invest in. You had their...

Prisons should not be for-profit private industries set up to make profits based on previously guaranteeing X-amount of prisoners, which is how privatized prisons operate, receive government funding and wind up being just another Ponzi Scheme set up for the rich to make money off the misery of the poor.

Most people that have leaders; the leaders don't do a damn thing but lead them straight to the grave. Leaders don't do anything but garner lots of wealth for themselves. Most leaders are millionaires. Folks poor as church mice, eating out of dumpsters and scrapping for water have leaders. Where ISIS's is blowing up stuff, decapitating folks, those countries have leaders. Israel has a leader. Palestine has a leader. The 54 (however many) African countries have leaders. Pastors are leaders.
