A lot of people are completely missing the point here with all the racial stuff. Excessive police violence is becoming universal. Minority communities, due to less access/influence in the mainstream and a longer experience with excessive police violence are giving the most organized and forceful responses.

So divide and conquer, good white people, let us beat you senseless, don't go crazy over it like those (insert racism here).

The goal is clearly intimidation of all dissenters, but race can be used to get good ol' 'Murican cops who would never oppress politics to go ahead and do the wrong thing on a different, even worse pretext. It's not the only pretext, but certainly the most disgusting, and it has the added benefit of driving a wedge between the different oppressed dissenting groups.

And it's in their interest to keep us apart, because frankly minorities have had to deal with police abuse for a lot longer, and cultures and subcultures do evolve to meet challenges. The last thing they need is angry white unemployed college graduates in guy fawkes masks learning overnight the tactics that took decades to evolve by bitter experience in the inner cities, and making common cause with less ideological and more pragmatic victim groups that can help them become a real force.

There's always a riot when two dangerous groups get too close to working together. The Hells Angels and SDS before the clash at the Oakland Berkley Line as detailed by Hunter S Thompson, the alleged gang truce before the LA riot (which i admit i know considerably less about), and now the rising tide of socially networked anti-police campaigns before Ferguson.

Somebody always gets provoked or framed into alienation right before they get the real organization and traction they would need to check the police. Did you ever wonder why some things cause riots at the drop of the hat and some huge outrages pass almost completely unnoticed? A really good riot takes logistics. I remember one police chase that involved a pickup truck full of molotov cocktails and political banners, which ended with a shotgun suicide on a freeway bridge. I felt like I'd gotten a glimpse at those logistics when I saw that and always wondered exactly what made those cocktails go off while the truck was stationary. It kinda felt like somebody who wasn't just working for himself attracted attention and got burned (literally and figuratively).

Or does anyone think that a large volume of Molotov Cocktails can get thrown just by people drinking 40s one at a time then refilling them with gas and ripping up their clothes and carrying them around looking for a good target and just luckily finding eachother as they do it? I tend to think that those get trucked in along with bricks in advance of a planned riot- which is what separates a real outburst of anarchy from a mere NBA threepeat celebration gone wrong.

CNN is a big part of this I think. The latest thing today with Don Lemon and that 35 year veteran cop looked staged. I don't know what to expect next. This Utah shooting, I'm getting the feeling it may have been suicide by cop. He sounded really desperate...

Yes I read on another site that the statistics on Google Search were 14,700,000 for Mike Brown and 4300 for Dillon Taylor. Dillon was killed 2 days after Mike Brown. That's a staggering difference. The arrogance of the chief of police in Salt Lake City is nauseating. Those numbers are rounded off. I don't know how to get those numbers, I just read it on a website that I'd rather not link to.



to have the real results, names should be put in quotes. and dillon's results are kinda lowered.

i'm getting this from google:
"mike brown" - 9,350,000
"dillon taylor" - 242,000

i bet those aren't the most accurate results, because their names may be spelled differently on some sites. even more, quite a bit of those results are not related to these cases. still, it's far from the difference you claim.

"mike brown" ferguson - 8,180,000 - see how that goes? you would have to check which search results are invalid (about someone else), then filter them out with -searchterm - because even in this case, when some website mentions some mike brown, then mentions ferguson in unrelated article, it will show up in those search results.

so such comparisons are kinda pointless.

Thanks for showing how that's done. Maybe the larger spread that I read about had Ferguson/Mike Brown vs. Dillon Taylor? Anyway without the statistical figures, I think it's still a fact that there has been no national cable news network coverage of the Utah shooting vs. Ferguson. They were only 2 days apart and very similar, although there were 3 cops on scene in Utah vs. 1 in Missouri. That's an accurate statement I think. I can't even tell you the name of the guy in North St. Louis with the knife. That was just a flash and it's gone. It's all Ferguson...

How does that connection work with the USB? The computer is connected to the television and you watch what's on the pc on the tv? Or you record something on the flash drive on the pc and then later watch it on the tv? I'm not tech savvy... It does sound good to avoid the "programmed" propaganda on MSM.

Not long before 9/11 I got tired of paying steadily increasing cable bills. So I quit on them and went back to old fashioned regular free tv (channels 2-13). It was good as I watched hardly any tv. It felt like all the negativity in the brainwashing news was eliminated. After the towers fell there was no signal and I had to have something to follow such tragic news as that so I got sneaky...

well, when something gets blown out of proportion, one question surely gets to mind.
why?

people are getting killed all the time. so it's obviously not the killing that got the attention of the media - as was already pointed out i think - but the riots. and when they're so willing to report said riots, it begs the question what really caused them - or who is really behind them.

when they're focusing on the right hand, you're more likely to miss what the left hand is doing at the same time.

Regarding the question of who, my opinion is there might be an alliance with these organizations and individuals.

1. Revolutionary Communist Party
gawker.com...
revcom.us...

2. Democratic Socialists of America
www.tysknews.com...

As protesters and police in Ferguson, Missouri continued to clash over the death of Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager shot to death by a police officer on August 9, Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.) called on federal investigators to secure "equal justice under the law" for Brown's family.

www.huffingtonpost.com...
William "Lacy" Clay is a member of the DSA.


3. New Black Panther Party
www.cbpm.org...

4. Nation of Islam
www.noi.org...

5. The Department of Justice
www.justice.gov...

6. Al Sharpton

Controversy The following year, Sharpton became embroiled in the Tawana Brawley case—a case that would haunt him for years. Brawley, an African American teenager, claimed that she was raped by a group of white men—some of whom were allegedly police officers. The case was later dismissed by a grand jury, which reportedly concluded that the teenager had made up the story. But this came after months of media frenzy around the case, largely encouraged by Sharpton. He was even sued by the district attorney working the case for making slanderous remarks. Sharpton was found guilty and fined for his comments. His reputation damaged, Sharpton faced more charges in 1990. He was tried and acquitted of stealing from the NYM. No matter what problems he encountered, he remained dedicated to his activism, arranging protests and giving press conferences. During one such protest in Brooklyn's Bensonhurst neighborhood in 1991, a man stabbed Sharpton in the chest. Rushed to the hospital, he had surgery to repair the damage and made a full recovery. In April 2014, the Smoking Gun web site reported that Sharpton had been a paid FBI informant during the 1980s and had been a key player in taking down the Genovese crime family. In defending his work law enforcement, he said, “Rats are usually people that were with other rats. I was not and am not a rat, because I wasn’t with the rats. I’m a cat. I chased rats.”

Tonight I finally saw a major national cable network mention the shooting of unarmed white citizen Dillon Taylor, 20 years old, by a black police officer. Fox News Judge Jeanine was interviewing Missouri State Senator Chappelle-Nadal about the Mike Brown shooting. She asked Nadal about the lack of coverage pertaining to Dillon Taylor. Nadal acknowledged that fact and that there's no coverage about all the black on black crime either. Maybe the Judge read my thread? So it is known to them what they exclusively focus on. Thank you Judge for at least mentioning Dillon!

REAL RACISM is practiced by liberals that feel black people in 2014 are still not smart enough or good enough to make it on a level playing field and need special privileges and this is holding black people back.
I would advise against making statements like that, since it makes you look a ignoramus who's out-of-touch with the problems of Black Americans.

For starters:

mic.com...

It's not a level playing field, unless you think Whites only having these "special privileges" is a level-playing field to you. You remind me of the people who whine about the lack of White Entertainment Television, or Straight Pride Parades. Like them, you too failed to look at the issue past it's surface.

I agree with you. It shouldn't, but it does to the media. Why is that? The media does it all the time. Almost exclusively when the the victim is black. Not any other way. I'm glad there are some posters, not you, others that are lashing out at me in anger. It shows the double standard even more. They call me racist for pointing it out. Yet they hear it all the time when a black has been victimized. No problem with that.

I know what your saying but there is a difference. Blacks in America really are classified as sub-citizen. Not legally or anything but it is quite clear unless your blind that blacks in America live in another world than the whites. Exceptions of course, both ways. Whether they bring it on themselves or there is an agenda will never be answered outright but here we are, still.


Slavery was abhorrent and so were Jim Crow Laws but that ended in 1964.

REAL RACISM is practiced by liberals that feel black people in 2014 are still not smart enough or good enough to make it on a level playing field and need special privileges and this is holding black people back.

It is time for Black people to take charge of themselves and their behavior as a group.

At some point they cannot keep blaming others.

Nobody disputes the injustices of the past but it is time to move on.

Also it starts in the home with the parent/s taking the time to invest in their children instead of throwing money at them not caring if they are in the streets or that the streets are raising them.

It is all a mindset.

I am not blind to the racism that exists on ALL sides of isle.

I have stated here many times that I am white and my husband is black.

We came from identical backgrounds - being extremely poor and single mothers raising us with no child support.

Children mimic their parents and are taught by experience.

IMHO.

ETA: I am neither Dem or Rep.



Liberal racism is one of low expectations. I'd get rather annoyed if somone told me that I couldn't succeed without their special help.

@ Navy Doc and wanderingconfusion please stop acting like racist folks just died or wandered off to some other planet after 1964,yes government in theory tried to get an angle on "Institutionalized Racism" but that do not mean it hasn't morphed into more subtle and insidious forms,level playing?? yes they are improvements even vast improvements
the swell of Black and latinos in in jail are not there for hard crimes but for drug use although they use and sell drugs at the same rate as whites,now Hispanic males ages 18 to 19 were more than 3 times as likely as white males of .Black males in this age group were almost 9.5 times more likely than white and are 4 times more likely to be arrested for marijuana.
www.drugwarfacts.org...
What happens when you are an ex con?? good luck explaining missing time on a job application or trying to vote.

So don't tell me there aren't folks in those institutions who won't throw a monkey wrench in those improvements,and have a I pop quiz are the vast majority of Blacks poor?? middle class,?? then there is the often repeated fact but no longer factual that there are more Blacks entangled in the Criminal Justice system than in College fact is that's old facts
By the Numbers: More Black Men in Prison Than in College? Think Again


www.acenet.edu...
klik here^ for the numbers. now this is in spite of the fact that things are slanted against them.
Now these old school racist are making a hard come back and they ain't subtle about trying to roll back time,the voter registration laws are aimed at Blacks and other minorities to disenfranchise them period,the next move after that would be to gerrymander those districts to keep a lock on power no matter the popular vote in any given community the result most of those communities would have the same disparities as Furguson.

Some AA communities need to step their game up which is true, noticed I said "Some" because I am sure many here view Black communities as a monolith maybe they won't reach the level of relative affluence as these AA communities over night but they can take steps towards it,first keep hip hop but shun gangsta, pull up your pants you are a grown ass man,unless you are especially lite skinned,tattoos looked stupid on you ,until drugs are made legal and I am talking of ganja keep out of that business get busted and you will not become a full citizen ever again I don't care what your birth certificate say.focus on family education and economics stay alert for changes in politics and the law.

UNIONVILLE, NY is a middle class predominately Black community in the suburbs of New York City. The average family income is $76,553, which makes the town one of the most flourishing African-American cities in the United States.

White people who kill black people in 'Stand Your Ground' states are 354% more likely to be cleared of murder
******************************************************************************************************************

Stand your ground laws are made for people being attacked, robbed or their houses broken into. Are you saying that whites are 354% more likely to be attacked, robbed or have their homes broken into by blacks?
*************************************************************************************************************************************************

Here is some proof of above article.
Black Shooter of White Victim in Florida Claimed "Stand Your Ground", still Arrested & Tried

***************************************************************************************************************************************************
This is a terrible example of you trying to prove your point. In this case the shooter (black) and the victim (white) had been arguing off and on for months. The shooter came to the basketball court ARMED on the day the victim was known to schedule his time on the neighborhood basketball court (shows premeditation). The shooter began harassing some kid who was skateboarding on the court and the victim stood up for the kid and was shot in front of his 8 year old daughter for telling the grumpy armed guy to leave the kid alone. I don't think "stand your ground" applies here. Granted, I'm not a lawyer.
**************************************************************************************************************************************************** Honestly, this whole (non-)issue of race is only an issue if we let it be one. The Ferguson thing should've calmed down and not gotten so out of control to start with. The kid was a thief and the cops overreacted. Both sides are to blame. The rioters have lost the moral high ground by rioting. I don't see how smashing the windows of neighborhood businesses and stealing 50 pairs of Air Jordans and a 6-pack conveys ones righteous indignation to a grieving community over the loss of one of their own. Conversely, I don't see how bringing in tanks and SWAT teams are supposed to assuage the anger of an upset and tantrum-throwing community, either.
I've can't comment to the Utah shooting because I've not heard as much about it which only serves to highlight the OP's point, if I understand it correctly.

As a rule protest turned riots are never generally about a single incident for that you would have to look at the underlying tensions between law enforcement and the community,they complained about police abuses for a longest but in a town where 70% of the residents are AAs nearly all the public officials are white, of the cops 50 out of 53 of them are whites 3 blacks,now that's not to say the community could never have been served well by those folks in power regardless of the unbalance nature of that community's power structure but when you have a cop that a few yrs back participated in a handcuffed beat down of a man originally picked up in a case of mistaken identity kept a week in jail,find for bleeding on the officers uniform during said beat down and was told by a Judge that his counter suit do not warrant damages because his injuries were minor despite severe concussion as told reported by a medical examiner made it on the city counsel where there are no Blacks and one Hispanic you know something is rotten in the State of Denmark.

Excellent post! You understand perfectly the point I'm making with the original post. The media always jumps on the blacks as victim of white racism. Never the other way around! Being that there are posters talking about white racism going way back to the sixties, I thought it would be fair to show some horrible black racism against whites from the early 1970's that was not national news although it should have been. It involved the San Francisco branch of the Nation of Islam. They went on a serial killing spree targeting "white devils". That was contained to local news only. I recommend that everyone on both sides of this issue read this book. It might educate you on racism being a 2 way street.

I read the book and it was limited to very local news! So yes I'm certain of it. Read the book online at that link. It's free and will open your eyes to what the Nation of Islam was/is about. Notice that Nation of Islam are in Ferguson? Now imagine the coverage if the roles were reversed! It would have been international news. Luckily that book is accessible in archives.org. It would probably be hard to find in a public library. My eyes are wide open to all racism. Let's not pretend it's limited to white on black.
