Yes they were charged.
And for some reason no one will discuss Africa with me. Always an excuse from everyone as to why the black, Africans have not progressed any further than they have unless integrated into other racial or ethnic societies. The land was raped of resources, ok ok I get that. Why have the Africans been oppressed for so long? Why did they not fight back and if they did and lost over and over from lack of technology, guns etc then why did they not have that technology? Other races did. It's not as if they are pacifist, they prove that every time they decide to hack each other to death with machetes. According to one post on here blacks were the first people on Earth. So they got a head start and are still miles behind in every facet of progression.
In America how often do you see new black neighborhoods? Blacks move into nice, clean, existing neighborhoods, run the other ethnic or racial groups out with fear of crime and then they destroy that nice neighborhood and then call it the "HOOD". If you live in the "HOOD" its you own d@mn fault you tore it up....white people didn't do it.
I work in marketing to retail stores. In one area of my district a McDonalds, Burger King and a Walgreens drug store all shut down within a year because the area became the "HOOD". They didn't close because blacks were there they closed because of theft and robbery. Then the blacks complain because all business leave the area but to them it's because they're black not because the places got robbed twice a week and were losing money.
I have Hispanic and Asian friends and they feel the same way I do. If blacks want to stop being treated as second class citizens in this world then they need to be self sufficient like everyone else. The black leaders that do arise only re-enforce the same old excuses instead telling it like it is.
MLK said judge a man by his character not by the color of his skin. Judge the black race by their overall character and tell me what you see. I'm sure someone will say we are all people and we are all the same....well guess what apparently we're not.

“We got to do something about these Asians coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops,” Barry said on Tuesday night, according to video posted by WRC-TV/NBC4. “They ought to go. I’m going to say that right now. But we need African-American businesspeople to be able to take their places, too.”
Former District of Columbia mayor Marion Barry referred to “dirty” Asian-owned businesses after winning the city’s Council Ward 8 primary, demanding that “they ought to go,” according to a report.

There has been no slavery for over 200 years. African Americans have been given every leg up in the last 40 years from afirmative action, to low income housing and government hand outs. With all that being said how long exactly does it take for African Americans to get their # together?? I mean you have had over 200 years as free people and over 40 years of govt assistance. Are you close yet cause I'm getting tired of giving you every leg up and nothing changes.

he is right african americans need to step it up and start running businesses in their own and other neighborhoods! ward 8 is majority black.
i dont know enough about the "dirty shops" and what not but he does have a point, african americans do need to step it up if they want to have nicer neighborhoods, less violence, less unemployment etc etc
its too bad he made his statement the way he did but it is no secret that in a lot of poor black neighborhoods the majority of the businesses are run by asians, i.e koreans, arabs etc etc..if they want to change that then they have to step it up and take responsibility. isnt that what some of you guys are arguing for?

In yet another blow to the FBI, a federal judge has set new deadlines for the agency to produce the confidential informant file of the late Memphis photographer Ernest Withers.
U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Thursday rejected an FBI motion asking for more time to decide if it will appeal a January order requiring production of Withers’ file.
The Justice Department wanted until at least June 4 to consult with the Solicitor General to decide whether to appeal. Rejecting that request, Jackson gave the FBI until May 5 to produce an index of Withers’ file or a proposed schedule for producing records in the file. She also gave the FBI until May 15 to produce “either the first wave of responsive records or at least a partial index.’’
