Out of all the news and media outlets, Huffington Post is one of the greatest when it comes to honorable journalism. They are not afraid to write about what the facts, problems and issues are, instead of sweeping them under the rug.

I stopped buying the New York Post a long time ago, when I started to realize the underhanded racism in the stories they reported about Black people, especially Black men.

But Huffington Post, round of applause to them.

When The Media Treats White Suspects And Killers Better Than Black Victims

On the afternoon of Aug. 9, a police officer fatally shot an unarmed, black teenager, Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri. Details remain in dispute. Eyewitnesses have said that Brown was compliant with police and was shot while he had his hands up. Police maintain that the 18-year-old had assaulted an officer and was reaching for the officer’s gun.

For more headlines go here.

Pay attention and please listen closely to the words of Jane Elliott. A White woman dropping knowledge on what the real issues are in this country, the way the school systems are set up and how racism is a learned behavior that can easily be unlearned.

Black On Black Crime Is Problematic Because Of Racism

Every race, nationalities, all different cultures, religion and different ethnicity commit crimes against each other. The reason Black on Black crime is so problematic is because of racism. The psychological conditioning of racism, Jim Crow, the Willie Lynch Syndrome and etc.

Before we can even began to address and fix the issues of Black on Black crime, the rate that it is; we have to address and find solutions to racism first. Racism is a disease, a bacteria, an infection; until we can destroy the disease of racism.. It will be difficult for us to heal Black communities and their issues nationwide.

A Black child going to school in this country is taught that their ancestors were slave, they constantly see images of Black men being hanged, lynched, tied to trees and executed during the course of history. This Black child is also witnessing how society views Black men, the negative stereotypes, how there is a lack of compassion for Black men lives, this child is listening to music about destroying his own, this child walks down the street and sees a body laying on the ground. It’s a Black teenager, there’s no ambulance, nobody cares and this child wonders how valuable is he on this earth.

Because he has been taught and psychologically condition that his life as a Black boy has no value.

But if this child is taught there were other great Black men, besides Martin L. King who contributed and innovated the society he lives in; like Garret Morgan who invented the traffic light. Then this child will grow up to not only value his own life, but the life of his peers as well. This child will discover and recognized his own greatness, through learning about the greatness of his ancestors.

image

And we can’t expect schools who are run by those who still harbor racism, towards Black people to teach our children these things.

The Jews don’t let nobody else teach their children about their history. And neither do other ethnic groups. Regardless if their child might go to a public school, they take it upon themselves to teach their children about the true history of their ancestors.

Black people are not the only ones affected by racism but we are the only ones who tolerate it. Other races and ethnic groups don’t play with it comes to racism, they will come out in the millions for one of their own.

So, why is it a problem to defend our own? I’m not surprised that the Chief of Police in Ferguson is going out of his way to protect Darren Wilson. He is suppose to do that. I’m not saying it is right but that’s how they get down. And this is what Donald Sterling was talking about, when it comes to a race trying to preserve their own.

Once Black people start showing America they are not going to tolerate their racism, start taking back control of their history by being the ones who hold the pen, unify as one.. Then we can began to start healing, build and help Black communities progress.

Game Changer: Mo’Ne Davis Innovates Little League Baseball

Beautiful name for an ambitious young lady.

Mo’ne Davis plays hard and has become a game changer, when she innovated Little League Baseball, by becoming the first female pitcher. And babygirl is not just pitching, she has a mean arm and throwing balls at 70 mph.

Mo’ne Davis is the only girl on her team, the Philadelphia Taney Dragons and performed in her first Little League World Series game against Tennessee last Friday.

Mo’ne Davis also expressed, how she wants to inspire little girls like herself and hopes that Little League Baseball will become a co-ed game for both sexes to play.

Check out her comments below.

"Probably like a couple of years from now, there will be a lot of girls here, and then it won’t be just like all boys, so they’ll have to build like another dorm for girls, so it’ll be a huge impact if more girls start playing," she said.

Mo’ne is the fourth girl to make it to the World Series. When CBS asked her if she pitches like a girl, she had an amusing but fairly sarcastic remark for them.

Check it out below.

“Throwing 70 miles an hour – that’s throwing like a girl.”

Mo’ne Davis will also be featured on Sports Illustrated magazine and was honored by gracing the cover of their August 25th issue.

Mo’ne Davis’ coach and teammates commented about her willingness to go above and beyond, and how she’s a professional at what she does.

Mo’ne was asked about her passion when it comes to baseball. And it seems like, she is also passionate about another sport.

Check it out below.

“To be honest, I never thought I’d be famous for baseball,” she says. “I want to play basketball, and I could also do both basketball and baseball; but I really want to play basketball.”

Hmmm… With that mean arm, I’m sure she can throw a half court shot like a pro.

Round of applause to Mo’ne Davis for being a game changer.

Teen Invents & Creates App Called "Five O" To Document & Report Police Brutality

The Mike Brown incident is tragic and negative but some positivity is coming out of it.

Ima Christian from Decatur, Georgia invented and created an app called, "Five O" to document and report police brutality. The app was designed for all mobile users.

Five O was created for people to record, document and even report any encounter they have with any police; that can or has led to police brutality. The Five O app also allows users to rate any police department, local or citywide so their civil behaviors towards the public are known.

Business Insider got a hold of the teen and she spoke about what inspired her to create the app.

"We’ve been hearing about the negative instances in the news, for instance most recently the Michael Brown case, and we always talk about these issues with our parents," she said. "They always try to reinforce that we should focus on solutions. It’s important to talk about the issues, but they try to make us focus on finding solutions. That made us think why don’t we create an app to help us solve this problem."

The app was released yesterday and is already available to Android users and will be available for Apple users real soon. Users can record and document any verbal or physical confrontation they experienced with any branches of law enforcement. Users can also rate police officers or law enfrocment departments by grade, ranging from A to F.

Users can also report positive aspects they witness with any police or police department as well.

The Five O app also displays a “Know Your Rights” section, which features information from the American Civil Liberties Union. This was established to help citizens who are unaware of their rights and also, what legal actions should be taken.

Ima Christian was recently interviewed by Buzzfeed and she expressed how she also wanted to aid in protecting the public. And help justice prevail against shady law enforcements.

“We’d like to know which regions in the US provide horrible law enforcement services as well as highlight the agencies that are highly rated by their citizens,” Ima said to the website. “In addition to putting more power into the hands of citizens when interacting with law enforcement, we believe that highly rated police departments should be used as models for those that fail at providing quality law enforcement services.”

Ima Christian also elaborated how the app is not only to focus on the bad behaviors of police officers or their department but, also to highlight good cops and their departments as well.

"If someone has a positive interaction with the police … for example, an officer saved your cat, or was very courteous and professional, we want people to be able to document that too," she said. "We hope that law enforcement agencies with positive reviews can help by functioning as role models.”

Round of applause to Ima Christian, for developing a solution in the midst of a problem and for a making a difference.

Things That Make You Go Hmmm: Store Owner Speaks Out & Claims He Never Reported A Robbery

Yup! Things that will make you go hmmm… and look at the Ferguson police department all side eye and everything.

The store owner who was in the footage released on Friday, August 15 has spoken out and claimed he never reported a robbery. So, where did that story come from? It was all a smear campaign to assassinate the character of Michael Brown and justify the actions of Darren Wilson for killing him. And if you look at the timeline, the video was released after Darren Wilson was named as the cop in question. 

How convenient was that?

To draw up a warrant of a video that had nothing to do with what happened to Mike Brown and concoct a story to go along with it.

The store owner claimed there were no 911 calls nor did he go to the police to file any charges on Mike Brown. The store owner did not state what the conflict was with him and Mike Brown but he clearly stated it had nothing to do with robbery. The store owner went on to say, he was just complying with the Ferguson police department, when they came with a warrant for the hard drive of his store and how he did not know what it was about.

Since the smear footage against Mike Brown has been released, the store owner has gotten legal representation.

That will change..

That will change..

The mishandling of Mike Brown’s body.

The mishandling of Mike Brown’s body.

Graphic Images: The Mishandling Of Mike Brown’s Body After He Was Killed

There should not only be a federal investigation into the shooting and murder of Michael Brown but also a federal probe into the police department in Ferguson.

After Mike Brown was shot and killed, there were no ambulances or paramedics presented at the sight nor were they called in. That would seem very odd and strange, since it is not a proper procedure when something like that goes down.

In this video, which is graphic. It shows Mike Brown’s body laying on the streets and there are no paramedics, not even one ambulance around to evaluate the body or offer any sort of medical assistant. The police department in Ferguson, got Mike Brown’s body on a stretcher and loaded it into one of their police cruisers. This is not the proper way to handle a body. 

There should be a full investigation not only about the shooting and murder of Michael Brown but also, the mishandling of his body.

How Did A Small Town Like Ferguson Get Billions Of Dollars Worth Of Military Tanks & Equipments, Where Did The Money Come From?

Yes, billions. Funding a war is the most expensive and lucrative business there is.

So, where did all this money come from? And who supplied Ferguson with their military equipments?

And why would a small town like Ferguson need to equip themselves like that? What were they preparing for? Hmmm… I guess we are witnessing it now.

Martial Law being played on our television screens and displayed on the front pages of newspapers across the nation. With Martial Law, there is no First Amendment and this is why news reporters and anybody that has to do with the media are easily arrested and detained.

This kept happening all day yesterday, and even into the night in Ferguson.

The above picture is a photographer from “Getty” who got arrested yesterday in Ferguson. A direct violation of an amendment right from the classic "Bill Of Rights."

What we are seeing in Ferguson is Martial Law. And it would make sense why Ferguson’s police department is militarized. But the real question is, how many other police departments across the nation are militarized like Ferguson? And why?

Because if you think this can not happen to your community or town, you are sadly mistaken.

These police officers in the above picture, are not in regular police uniforms but military gear, this was before the National Guard went into Ferguson.

Why are tax dollars being used to militarized police department? What kind of war are they preparing for?

Things that make you go hmmm…

David Banner Begins A Twitter Campaign Naming Innocent Black Men Murdered By Police

David Banner has the potential of becoming President one day. If he goes into politics, with the right guidance, and; follows the protocols of becoming a mayor, governor and etc. Some White leftist group might not be happy if this was to occur because David Banner has been a powerful, strong voice against racism. He is not afraid to speak up and tackle other issues that are affecting the Black community.

David Banner begin a Twitter campaign of naming innocent Black men, as well as teenage boys who were murdered by the police.

If this does not make some of you wake up, then I don’t know what will.

It seems like the Black men is a threat to America and I am still trying to discover what they fear. It is something they have always feared since they landed in Africa. But they also realized the Black men was very resourceful. And this is why slavery begun.

Africa was a country, a nation many traveled to learn about philosophy, arts, science, mathematics, the universe, the stars and etc.

If you wanted to rid a race, where would you begin? You would have to kill the dominance aspect of it, which is the men. The one who carries the dominant gene. That is all I will say for now.

Check out the list below.
