Police Mandatory Reporting Update 5/1: Baltimore’s state attorney ruled Freddy Gray’s death a homicide and charged six officers with the crime. Freddie, a 25 year old Black man, died after his spine was partially severed while in police custody. Today's announcement isn’t a victory but it’s certainly an important step towards accountability. What we need next is transparency. Until we know the the truth about how many young Black and brown people are brutalized by police encounters every...

Another million or more could probably be set free along with this 6,000. Prison's nothing but a human zoo; an extremely lethal one. Mother didn't bring you forth to get your behind locked up in a cage til death do your black ass part. Black men do better. You've let the faux supremacy over rule your ass.The white man's got you by the scrotum because you did something that went entirely against humanitarian behavior and America's his Ball Park; now you're OWNED.

They do it right out in the open. No discussions whatsoever in advance with black politicians or leaders. They do it without any fucking respect . That's their calling card. It is racist. Obvious and evil. With Trump, we’re back in 1954. If this is war, strategically retreat, lay low on the streets, hang out in different people’s places, business indoors - during the racist administration of Damned Madness. Go as-if underground. Make it fruitful. Make some motherfucking plans. Build up.

And where are the white liberals? Where is the Democratic Party? A local Republican that works on voter ID said the Democratic Party gives them almost no resistance because they are after the same voters. He said most of the resistance is from private Black lawyers not the Democratic Party. He said the Obama administration was slow and ineffective regarding voter ID. I was shocked that he said that because it is the truth. He said the Democratic Party have not been a traditional liberal...

Perhaps the Disunited States can give the people the same HEALTH CARE John McCain's receiving for that blood clotted eye. That'll end this discussion. 50 years from now the movie's going to be a hoot about the entire U.S. administration that ended up in PRISON. Should bring in quite a few bucks.

Russia's a white country like America's a white country. White people don't get along worth a shit anywhere. They kill, slaughter, maim, drop bombs on each other's heads, chop heads off, have cooked each other in ovens. There's something insane about these bastards.
