The agenda was released days before the second anniversary of the slaying of unarmed black teen Michael Brown by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Brown's death, along with other fatal police shootings of unarmed black men over the past two years, fueled a national debate about racial discrimination in the U.S. criminal justice system.
Issues related to race and violence took center stage at the Democratic National Convention last week, though the coalition did not endorse the party's platform or White House candidate, Hillary Clinton.
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization, was not listed among them.
The agenda calls for an end to the death penalty, decriminalization of drug-related offenses and prostitution, and the "demilitarization" of police departments. It seeks reparations for lasting harms caused to African-Americans of slavery and investment in education and jobs.

So , they want money. The government would probably give it to em. But , they would so heavily tax it , they would wind up owing the government....

So who pays for these "reparations" ?
REQUEST: Gaming Therapy
I know it may not sound like a serious request, but it is serious to me. Between school and bills, my wallet is pretty empty when it comes to leisure funds. So, I ask you to help me obtain a game. I have several on my list, but the one I want the most is the new World of Warcraft game, due out August 30th. Gaming is how I unwind from the day's stress, so this would provide some much needed relaxation for me.
