Kaepernick, So You Claim To Stand With The People That Are Being Oppressed.Black Babies Die In Sleep At Higher Rates In Sacramento?

On the first day of September in 2007, Renée Walker woke up with her two toddlers and her 4-month-old, Tayiana, in a friend’s apartment, on an air mattress she and her children all shared while bouncing among homes in the Sacramento area.
Walker had woken up early, excited because she’d be feeding Tayiana her first warm bowl of Cream of Wheat. She headed to the kitchen, leaving the infant in bed with her siblings. As she prepared the meal, she cooed to Tayiana in her usual way, expecting groggy baby babble in response.
“As I’m pulling the cereal down I look into the room and I’m saying, ‘Tay Tay, wake up,’” Walker said. “And I looked at her, and she did not look herself. I dropped the cereal, I ran to the room.
“I just jumped on the air bed – the air bed moved and she just stayed. She was gone.”

Walker is among dozens of African American women in Sacramento County who have lost their children to sudden unexpected infant death in recent years. Black babies in Sacramento County were about five times more likely to die in their sleep than white babies between 2010 and 2015, according to a Sacramento Bee review of California death certificates. They were about seven times more likely to die in their sleep than Latino babies. No Asian babies died during sleep in Sacramento County during that period.
Between 2010 and 2015, nearly half of the 79 infants who died during sleep were African American, the analysis found. During that same time period, African Americans made up just 11 percent of the child population.
Across California, black babies also are much more likely to die in their sleep than white, Latino and Asian babies, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
These “sudden unexpected infant deaths,” as medical groups have coined them, occur during sleep and often without witnesses. Though for decades such deaths were considered random and unpreventable, doctors have changed their tune in the last decade, noting that most of the deaths occur in unsafe sleeping environments.
Public health officials now recommend that parents lay babies down alone, on their backs, in cribs bare of anything except a tightly fitted sheet to reduce the risk of sudden unexpected infant death. Though the guidelines are clear, they haven’t made their way to many of Sacramento’s African American families, said Dr. Ethan Cutts, a Kaiser Permanente pediatrician.
Cutts is one of two dozen community leaders taking part in a special committee spearheading Sacramento County’s effort to address mortality rates among African American children that for decades have outpaced child death rates for other racial and ethnic groups. Sleep-related deaths are among the key factors driving that disparity, according to both The Bee’s review and a 2012 county study.
Often without realizing it, families are putting babies down in an unsafe environment, Cutts said. That could mean on a mattress shared by multiple children and adults who might roll over the baby, in a room with smoky air that hurts the baby’s lungs, or even in a chair or car seat if mom can’t afford a crib.
Over the next four years, the committee will use millions in county funds to launch an educational campaign, through hospitals, churches and clinics, to prevent parents fromputting infants to sleep in adult beds, laying them down in bedding that could suffocate or strangle them, or “overdressing” them in a manner that dangerously elevates temperature.
“(People) may not have an understanding of what it means to sleep safe,” Cutts said. “We have decades of cultural feeling about (sudden infant death) that think it’s unpreventable. Now we’re having to change generations of feeling ... and that’s difficult.”

The bed-sharing debate

When an infant dies suddenly and unexpectedly, medical examiners usually classify it as a sudden unexpected infant death. They also may use the term sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS, which is a specific type of sudden death that does not have an identifiable cause. Because there’s no test to determine whether an infant died of accidental suffocation vs. SIDS, death certificates often list the cause of death as “SUID,” but with a contributing factor such as “co-sleeping” or “lying prone” (face-down).
Between 2010 and 2015, 36 black infants died in their sleep in Sacramento County. In 16 of those cases, the coroner noted in the death certificate that the baby was sleeping with an adult or sibling. In eight cases, the baby was put to sleep on his or her stomach or was found underneath a pillow. Twelve cases had no contributing factors marked.
Nationwide, leading public health groups, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, now cite parents sharing a bed with their children as a major risk factor for infant sleep-related deaths. Cutts agrees, saying it’s really just a problem of physics.
“(Infants) are lying next to their parents, who weigh a lot more,” Cutts said. “The beds are very soft, and they slip into that ‘black hole’ that’s created by the parent – a gravity well. They can’t breathe and start to suffocate. The body tells them to move, but they don’t know how to do that yet.”
Despite the warnings, significant numbers of women across racial groups continue to sleep with their babies held close. A 2013 study from the U.S Department of Health and Human Services found that about 40 percent of both black and Asian women always or often share a bed with their infant.
Yet, in The Bee analysis, no Asian babies died of sleep deaths between 2010 and 2015

James McKenna, director of the Mother-Baby Behavioral Sleep Laboratory at the University of Notre Dame, is among a vocal subset of experts who cite similar statistics in arguing against a blanket condemnation of bed-sharing. It is an age-old, universal practice that can be done safely, McKenna said – but only if certain guidelines are followed.
“It isn’t really an issue of the bed-sharing,” he said. “No group has increased more in their bed-sharing behavior than whites, and their (mortality) rates are going down. It’s the condition in which it’s occurring that’s killing the babies.”
One reason African American babies are at higher risk while bed-sharing is that they are more likely than other racial groups to have been born prematurely, said Dr. Terri Major-Kincade, a Texas neonatologist who does outreach to African American mothers through March of Dimes.
Many premature babies begin life with lower lung capacity and a vulnerability to infection, Major-Kincade said. They also have a less developed ability to wake up during a sleep apnea, when they stop breathing temporarily. Those conditions make black babies more likely to die regardless of where they are sleeping, she said.
She tells all of the moms she works with not to share the bed, but she gets especially worried when moms take premature babies back home without a crib.
“People think, ‘OK, I’m just going to put my baby next to me, and I’ll know, it’ll be OK,’ ” she said. “It’s not going to be OK. Our babies are going home smaller and smaller.”
Another factor, according to McKenna, is that breast-feeding remains less common among African Americans than other racial groups.
“We’ve found that breast-feeding mothers are more highly sensitized to the behaviors of their babies than formula-fed babies,” he said. “It’s just a result of the biological process of breast-feeding, and the baby alerting the mother that it’s ready to feed.”
That frequent checking in can be what keeps a mother from rolling on her baby, or what helps a baby wake up during apnea, McKenna said. Bottle-fed babies, on the other hand, have lengthier, deeper sleep periods because formula keeps them full for longer.
McKenna does not recommend bed-sharing for formula-fed babies, nor for babies who were born prematurely or at a low birth weight. He warns against co-sleeping on sofas and recliners. And he was among several experts who advise against bed-sharing if adults have used drugs or alcohol.
Still, McKenna said, safe-sleeping classes should include information on what types of families can co-sleep and how to minimize the risks.
“Who are the babies that live? And what are the conditions under which they are bed-sharing?” he said. “This is not a subject where you just say either do it or don’t.”

Keeping baby close

As it presses forward with its education campaign, Sacramento County is adhering to the stricter guidelines adopted by the American Academy of Pediatrics, which recommends parents share a room with their infant, but never a bed.
“If there is any wiggle room, people will exploit it,” Cutts said. “The message is very clear. This is unsafe, and you have to realize you’re taking a risk.”
An estimated $600,000 of the county’s $26 million plan to reduce black child deaths will address safe sleeping practices through billboards, radio announcements and neighborhood fliers. Other funding will increase the county staff positions dedicated to home visits to educate new moms about safe sleep.
About $2.5 million of the county funding will go toward construction and staffing of two new family resource centers – one in south Sacramento and one in Arden – where social workers can hold safe-sleeping workshops.
The idea is to build on some of the programs the county already runs, expanding resources and targeting neighborhoods where infant mortality rates are especially high.
In the past, the information about sleep death has not been consistently and reliably transmitted, Cutts said, and safe-sleeping workshops have come and gone with county budget slashes.
“We’ve had these programs where we try to do a lot of education,” Cutts said. “But then the funding dries up, and new babies are born and they don’t get the education. As soon as we stop the education, the deaths go back up.”
Robin Evans, Sacramento mother of three
The county is looking to capitalize on programs such as one that unfolded on a recent weekday at a community center in Meadowview. A half dozen mothers, a father and grandmother watched a staffer demonstrate how to safely prepare a crib and lay a baby down, then practiced with a doll.
At the end of the session, attendees were given free Pack ’n Play Play Yards to use as cribs. The county is also giving out free Pack ’n Plays, which cost about $50 apiece, through maternity wards at area hospitals.
Robin Evans, a mother of three, said she had heard about the workshop from a friend and was curious. She said she had been sleeping with her 5-month-old son, Mekhi, since bringing him home from the hospital, and had no idea it could pose a risk.
“I did all my kids on their back, but they were with me,” Evans said. “My whole family had done it, with all their kids. ... A lot of us sleep with our babies under us or by us. We’re scared to leave them alone.”
Evans lives near the center in Meadowview, a community familiar with poverty and violence. Neighborhoods with high rates of crime tend to be hotspots for infant sleep death in Sacramento County. During the five years covered in The Bee’s review, infant sleep deaths were highest in the 95823 ZIP code in south Sacramento and the 95821 ZIP code near north Arden Arcade.
Paula Birdsong, who runs an infant mortality prevention program at Center of Praise Ministries in midtown Sacramento, said bed-sharing is an instinctive practice for many young black women living in violent neighborhoods or transient circumstances.
“Some of them are not sure about other people in the home, and they’re not sure if anyone will try and take their baby, try and harm their baby,” she said. “That is a reality that some of our moms are facing ... that’s why they want to keep their babies as close as possible.”
Young African American mothers also tend to trust family members more than their doctors or the county, she said. Unfortunately, those family members aren’t always passing down updated information about safe sleep.
“Most people will say, ‘my grandma did this, my mom did this,’ ” she said. “That’s the thing we have to try to combat. It was very common for a long time for people to do that. We have learned through the information we have now that that was a huge gamble.”
In hopes of bridging that trust gap, the county also is looking to expand the reach of groups with a proven track record of working with African American mothers. That includes Sacramento Building Healthy Communities, one of seven community programs slated to get $120,000 annually over the next three years as part of the county initiative. Healthy Communities partners with a range of programs, including Black Mothers United, which pairs struggling black mothers with a personal advocate.
Renée Walker, who lost her first baby on the air mattress in 2007, turned to Black Mothers United for help when she became pregnant again in 2015. She had lost another child to sleep death in the intervening years, this time while she, her two toddlers and her newborn were sharing one bed in a motel room.
The program helped her connect with support and services for the birth of Jeremih Chess Jr., now 4 months old. In concert with Black Mothers United, Walker devotes some of her time to telling her story of loss at schools and churches. It’s hard to recount the deaths, she said, but she wants women like her to know what can happen if they don’t get help.
“If you don’t love yourself, do it for that baby,” Walker tells them. “Be resourceful, be informational. Don’t be close-minded; don’t be fearful.”

The Cristero War is also known as Cristiada 250 Thousand Persons Died,Iincluding Citizens And Soldiers. . Aug. 1, 1926, When The Government Re-Enacted The Penal Code And Forced The Closure Of All Catholic Churches Throughout The Entire Country With Its New Anticlerical Laws. It Was An Armed Struggle Between The Mexico. Government and the Mexico. Catholic Church from 1926 to 1929, Meaning Mexico Civil War

The Cristero War is also known as Cristiada. It was an armed struggle between the Government and the Church from 1926 to 1929. If was fought between the administration of Plutarco Elias Calles and militias of secular, presbyter and religious Catholics that were against the public policies designed to restrict the autonomy of the Catholic Church. It is estimated that 250 thousand persons died, including citizens and soldiers. 

In 1917 a new Constitution was promulgated, establishing a policy of religious intolerance, including the prohibition for the Church to own real estate, the prohibition of public cult outside churches, the State would decide the number of churches and priests in the country, the clergy was denied the right to vote, religious press was not allowed to refer to public issues, elementary school had to be secular and the religious corporations and ministers of cult were prohibited to establish or manage elementary schools. 

In 1926, President Plutarco Elias Calles promoted instruments on article 130 of the Constitution to exercise severe control, searching to limit or suppress the participation of churches in public life. Some of these rules were clearly focused against Catholics, such as obligating the ministers to marry and prohibiting religious communities. 

As a sign of mourning, many churches in the country suspended cult and the clergy convinced parishioners to boycott the government, such as to not paying taxes, to minimize the purchase of products sold by the government, to not buy lottery tickets and to not use vehicles in order to not buy gasoline. This severely affected national economy and inspired the radicalization of some groups among Mexican Catholics. 

Catholic citizens formed the National League for the Defense of Religious Freedom in March 1925. Their goal was to achieve freedom of cult by legal means, but it was declared illegal and thus became an underground movement. 

This radicalization grew as a social movement with the goal of vindicating the rights of worship in Mexico. This movement believed in reaching a solution through and armed conflict and was independent from bishops. In January 1927, the first guerillas, formed by farmers, began to gather weapons. These armed forces were known as cristeros and grew by proclaiming Long Live Cristo Rey! and Long Live Santa María de Guadalupe! An efficient way to add followers to the cause was the use of symbols profoundly rooted in Mexican culture, such as the Virgin of Guadalupe, formerly used with the same goal by leaders of the Independence and Revolution struggles. 

The states where they first started to revolt were Jalisco, Zacatecas, Guanajuato and Michoacan, but soon the whole central part of the country had joined. It is estimated that by 1929 there were 20,000 members in the cristero forces. Mexican bishops quickly attempted to distance themselves from the armed movement and tried to negotiate peace by requesting the government of United States to act as a mediator.

The underground character of the cristeros stopped them from having formal mechanisms for supplies, recruitment, training and medical attention; they could only depend on outdated weapons, the surplus from the Revolution of 1910.

This uprising created a grave rupture between the members of the National League for the Defense of Religious Freedom and Mexican bishops, whose reaction was to greater centralize and control the catholics through the newly created Mexican Catholic Action. A long negotiation began, serving as mediator the ambassador of Untied Stated in Mexico, Dwight Morrow. An agreement was reached granting general amnesty for all the cristeros who chose to give up. Approximate numbers state that only 14 thousand persons gave up their weapons, from among the 50 thousand persons involved. 

Pope Pius XI reacted by publishing encyclicals that criticized the governments of Mexico, Nazi Germany and Italia for their anti-catholic policies. 

The president of Mexico announced that the Catholic Church would submit to the law but in reality “nicodemic relationships” were applied (referring to Nicodemus, the Pharisee that would approach Jesus during the night). In the practice, the State resigned from applying the law and the Church resigned from publicly disputing the imposed conditions. Mexico’s archbishop became the only negotiator allowed to speak to federal authorities; the country’s bishops would not make any more comments regarding national politics. 

This is how the State-Church situation continued in Mexico until 1992, when then president Carlos Salinas de Gortari renewed diplomatic relations with the Vatican and promulgated a new law of cult. Congress reformed article 130 of the Constitution, granting legal presence to the Church.

Kaepernick, So You Claim To Stand With The People That Are Being Oppressed. So Who Oppressing, Who?, Botched Abortion: Bleeding Woman Rushed to Hospital from Planned Parenthood in Denver?

: Operation Rescue has obtained the CAD report for this incident, which indicates a female patient suffered severe vaginal bleeding after a “procedure.”View the CAD.
By Cheryl Sullenger
Denver, CO — While Planned Parenthood continues to portray itself as a provider of “quality health care,” one patient who was transported to the hospital over the weekend might have something quite different to say about what a Planned Parenthood did to her.
On Saturday, August 13, 2016, an employee of the Stapleton Planned Parenthood, located at 7155 E. 38th Avenue in Denver, Colorado, called for emergency help with a patient who was bleeding badly enough to warrant immediate hospitalization.
Local pro-life activists photographed the incident. Denver Fire Department Radio traffic confirmed in a brief dispatch order that there was a “party bleeding” at the Planned Parenthood facility.
While it is unknown exactly who was responsible for the conducting the abortion, one provider known to work at that facility is Savita Ginde, who serves as Vice President and Medical Director for Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountain.
Ginde was featured in an undercover video released by the Center for Medical Progress discussing the sale of aborted baby remains. She was caught on camera identifying several organs from one dismembered aborted baby that could have netted Planned Parenthood $200 to $300.
“I think the ‘per item’ thing works a little better just because we can see how much we can get out of it,” Ginde told undercover CMP journalist David Daleiden in a discussion about financial compensation for each organ or body part.
“Once the facts come out, the propaganda rhetoric of Planned Parenthood falls apart. In truth, Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion business in the U.S., and they will do just about anything to make money,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, who also served as a founding board member for the Center for Medical Progress. “It preys on vulnerable pregnant women for profit, but when something goes wrong with the abortion product they sell, Planned Parenthood is nowhere to be found. They pack women off to the emergency room to let someone else clean up their mistakes.”
Pro-life activists have documented other medical emergencies at the Stapleton Planned Parenthood abortion facility, including one on October 26, 2012, when an ambulance was called for a hemorrhaging patient, and another incident on March 5, 2013, for a patient suffering severe abdominal pain after an abortion.
This Planned Parenthood facility was also sued in 2014 for failing to report suspected child sex abuse on a 13-year old girl. She had been raped by her step-father, who arranged the secret abortion to cover up his crime then accompanied her to Planned Parenthood, where her abortion was done with no questions asked.
“Anyone who opposes the blatant exploitation of vulnerable human beings for profit would do well to work to shut this horrendous abortion business down,” said Newman.

Kaepernick, So You Claim To Stand With The People That Are Being Oppressed. So Who Oppressing, Who?, Panicked Massachusetts Planned Parenthood Calls Ambulance for African-American Abortion Patient

By Cheryl Sullenger
Worcester, MA – Yet another ambulance has transported a Planned Parenthood patient to a hospital emergency room– this time from the Central Health Center Planned Parenthood in Worcester, Massachusetts.
The incident occurred on Friday, August 26, 2016. Pro-life activists at the scene at the scene were told by a mailman who was leaving the facility that there was “panic inside” the Planned Parenthood.
Witnesses observed emergency responders bring out an African-American woman on a gurney. She was sitting up and conscious. No more is currently known about her condition.
The Worcester medical emergency is just the latest problem for Planned Parenthood.
Operation Rescue has documented at least a dozen medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities over the past eight months in the following cities:
• Worcester, Massachusetts. African-American patient with unknown injuries.
Madison, Wisconsin. Hemorrhage.
Denver, Colorado. Hemorrhage.
Kalamazoo, Michigan. 15-year old suffering a “Priority 1” life-threatening condition.
St. Louis, Missouri (3 incidents) All unknown complications due to Fire Department refusal to release information.
• New York City, NY. African-American woman taken to ambulance in a wheelchair.
Silver Spring, Maryland. African-American woman barely able to walk lifted into ambulance
• San Bernardino, California. Female patient with unknown condition due to failure of San Bernardino to release any 911 records.
• Overland Park, Kansas. Fire Department EMS response to unknown condition.
Annapolis, Maryland. Transported to hospital with non-life-threatening complications.
“The targeting of poor urban women of color is an obvious pattern in this list. Planned Parenthood is seeking out the most vulnerable women in minority areas for their dubious abortion practices,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “This list is just a small fraction of the actual abortion complications that take place since most manifest after the patient has left the Planned Parenthood abortion center.”
Newman continued, “It’s time for politicians to stop protecting Planned Parenthood and their shoddy abortion practices. Defund them now and shut them down.”

Sheriff Clarke: 455 Murders in Chicago This Year Greater Then Coalition Deaths in Afghanistan Since 2013, Kaepernick, So You Claim To Stand With The People That Are Being Oppressed. So Who Oppressing, Who?

Commenting on the deplorable conditions in some of America's cities, Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr.  said "progressive policies" were to blame and added that there have been 455 murders in Chicago so far this year, which is greater than the 270 coalition soldiers killed in Afghanistan since 2013. 
"You have almost twice as many people killed in the city of Chicago" than soldiers killed in Afghanistan, said Sheriff Clarke. "I don't see Obama going to Chicago to help out. Obama was in Martha's Vineyard, for Heaven's sake." 
On the Aug. 23 edition of Varney & Co., Sheriff Clarke discussed the situation of black Americans with host Stuart Varney.

he American ghetto has replaced the cotton fields, where Democrats have gathered blacks in these horrible, miserable conditions, all for political power," said the sheriff. 
“If you go back in history, and we’ve been – black people have been separated from their history," he said. "They traditionally voted Republican. It was Abraham Lincoln the Republican who freed the slaves. It was the Republicans in Congress who did the heavy lifting to get the Civil Rights Act passed, as well as the Voting Rights Act. The Democrats were against it."
"Lyndon Johnson had to appeal to Republicans even though the Democrats controlled both houses of Congress," said Sheriff Clarke.  "He didn’t have enough from the Democrats who stood in the way of the passage of those two important bills."
"So, once we reconnect black people with their history, which is what I’ve tried to do, their eyes will open and they’ll see that they’ve been hoodwinked by this monolithic voting for Democrats," he said. "Nothing has gotten better under Democrat control of the black vote."

Venezuela claims U.S. and opposition forces are plotting coup to overthrow Maduro?

Venezuela is accusing the United States and the country's political opposition of planning a coup for Thursday, the day that government opponents have called for a march to demand a recall vote against President Nicolás Maduro.
The Foreign Ministry's North America agency issued a statement Monday protesting U.S. State Department spokesman John Kirby's call for the release of the jailed former mayor of San Cristóbal, Daniel Ceballos, who was taken from his home early Saturday by state intelligence agents and moved back to prison in central Guarico state. He had been under house arrest.
The socialist government said Ceballos was planning to flee before the Thursday protest in Caracas and carry out violent acts to destabilize the country. But the move alarmed the opposition, Washington and human rights groups who consider him a political prisoner.
"The brand and authorship of the coup being planned for September 1, 2016, in Venezuela, in collusion with the anti-democratic opposition and international right, has become clear...," said a North America office statement published on the Foreign Ministry's website. It said President Barack Obama's government "is seeking to destabilize Venezuela and the region in its final days to legitimize its imperial plans against peace and the development of the people."
Venezuela's government has frequently accused Washington and the country's opposition of plotting coups. U.S. officials regularly deny the accusations.
Thursday's opposition march will be to pressure authorities to allow a recall referendum to go ahead. A successful "yes" vote this year would cut short Maduro's term and trigger a new election.
The recall effort comes amid daily, blocks-long food lines and inflation topping 700 percent.
The 32-year-old Ceballos was the leader of a wave of anti-government protests in San Cristóbal that rocked Venezuela in early 2014, leading to more than 40 deaths.
He was initially arrested along with several other activists of his Popular Will party, including opposition leader Leopoldo López. Ceballos has already served a 12-month sentence for disobeying a government order to remove barricades during the protests but still faces civil rebellion charges. He had been in prison but was allowed house arrest after having kidney problems.
He won a congressional primary from behind bars last year but authorities later barred him from holding public office. His wife then won by a landslide in an election to succeed him.
The U.S.-backed opposition has made the release of López, Ceballos and dozens of other activists it considers political prisoners a key demand. Maduro considers the activists dangerous coup-plotters.

Black Criminals, White Victims, and White Guilt

The media have relentlessly fanned the flames of racial hatred, while engaging in a systematic pattern of misinformation and blatant suppression of facts surrounding the perpetrators and victims of crime. As a result, so-called “criminal justice reform” is now being proposed to release more criminals from jails, supposedly to make amends for the unjust “mass incarceration” of black men.
The figures come quickly but are never subjected to the necessary scrutiny. Last fall, for example, the George Soros-funded ProPublica published a claim that black youths are killed by the police at a rate 21 times higher than white youths. Mass media parroted that claim, but the data are incomplete and biased. They represent just 1.2 percent of police departments nationwide, and most reports come from urban areas, where the population is disproportionately black.
More reliable data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) suggest that in 2012, 123 blacks were killed by police using firearms while 326 whites, including 227 non-Hispanic whites, were killed. These data, however are also not entirely reliable, but represent a larger data set than the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR).
CNN’s Marc Lamont Hill, a racial agitator fired by Fox News for defending cop-killers, spread another misleading statistic about police shootings, claiming that “Every 28 hours, an unarmed black person is killed by police.” This too was trumpeted in the media. It became a twitter hashtag, “#every28hours,” and another mantra like “hands up, don’t shoot.” But it is demonstrably false. There were 313 blacks killed by police, security guards and other “vigilantes” in 2012. Dividing 313 into the number of hours in a year (8,760) yields 28. However, 177 of these “unarmed black persons” were actually armed with firearms. That leaves 136. Others may have been technically “unarmed” but were threatening the officer’s life, for example with their car—or as in Michael Brown’s case, attempting to take the officer’s gun. Many more were not the result of shootings, but accidents, e.g., during vehicular chases. Finally, some of the shooters were not police. When the hyperbole is removed, the facts present a much more reasonable explanation. Barring a small number of tragic mishaps, police shootings are usually justified.
Let’s look at the other side now. In 2013 alone, 49,851 officers were assaulted with firearms, knives and other weapons. Over the past 10 years, on average, 150 police officers have been killed in the line of duty every year. Fifty-seven of these were shot, stabbed, strangled or beaten. Of the 509 officers feloniously killed in the past 10 years, 46 percent of the perpetrators were black, despite their representing only 13 percent of the population. Do we call this a black war against the police?

Black Crime & Incarceration
Critics also argue that blacks’ 40 percent share among U.S. prison populations is direct evidence of institutional racism (see table). In a color-blind society, they charge, incarcerated black populations would reflect their 13 percent share of the general population.

However, if black crime rates were the guide, it would seem that blacks are, if anything,underrepresented in prison populations. The table below presents FBI data on homicide offenders. Blacks exceed all other groups in murders committed in 2013. In prior years it was actually worse.
Homicide Offenders - Simpson Black Criminals, White Victims, and White Guilt
In 2007, the CDC broke out total homicide numbers and rates by age and race. The murder rate among blacks is similar to the rates in some of the most violent third-world nations (see below). No other racial or ethnic group comes close.
Murders and Rates - Simpson Black Criminals, White Victims, and White Guilt
The table below shows murder rates among males by age. Note that for 20 to 24-year-olds, the murder rate among blacks (109.4/100,000) is 17 times higher than the rate for whites (6.4/100,000). Among 15 to 19-year-olds, it is over 20 times higher. The average for all ages is 13 times higher.
Murder Rates by Age - Simpson Black Criminals, White Victims, and White Guilt
Finally, black-on-white crime is substantially greater than the reverse. The table below shows murders by race of offender and victim in 2013. Note that overall, blacks kill as often as whites, although blacks represent only 13 percent of the population. Note also that black-on-white murder is more than double the rate of white-on-black murder (409 to 189). Similar results were found for 201220112010 and prior years.
Offenders & Victims - Simpson Black Criminals, White Victims, and White Guilt
If these rates were to hold, and the roles were reversed—i.e., if blacks represented 64 percent of the population while whites comprised only 13 percent—black-on-white murder would have exceeded 2,000 killings in 2013, while white-on-black murder would have resulted in only 39 deaths. The table also shows that for all races, most murders were committed by members of the same race. This is because criminal violence usually occurs within one’s own community. Finally, in the other categories of violent crime—rape, robbery and aggravated assault—blacks consistently committed about 40 percent of the total in201320122011, and 2010.
So the disproportionate arrests, incarcerations and shootings of blacks should come as no surprise. Their 40 percent representation among the prison population fairly reflects the proportion of crimes committed by blacks in the U.S. This is not evidence of institutional racism, but rather a social pathology evident within the black community. They have been committing crimes at the highest rate by far of any racial/ethnic group for decades. 
In recent years, blacks have committed unspeakably heinous acts against whites and other racial/ethnic groups. Probably most notorious was the brutal 2007 murder of a young Tennessee couple, Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian, who were on a date when carjacked by four men and one woman. Newsom was repeatedly raped while Christian was forced to watch. He was then taken out, shot, and lit on fire. They repeatedly raped Christian, then poured bleach down her throat, stuffed her in a plastic bag and threw her in a kitchen trash bin to die.
There was no national news reporting of this double murder, despite its singularly vicious nature. More recently, a 19-year-old Mississippi girl, Jessica Chambers, was burned alive by suspected black perpetrators, who poured lighter fluid down her throat, ignited it and left her to die. No arrests have been made although Chambers supposedly identified her attackers before she died.
Each year in cities across the country, officials brace for widespread violence associated with black events. Author and journalist Colin Flaherty has documented over 500 cases of black-on-white violence in 100 American cities in his 2013 book, White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It.
Flaherty will be publishing a second book, “Don’t Make The Black Kids Angry: How white liberals and black media ignore, deny and encourage racial violence.” A pre-publication copy reviewed by this author adds further evidence to how this problem continues to be systematically suppressed by police, politicians and national news media.
Flaherty has reported extensively on the “knockout game,” where the goal is to knock a person out with a single, surprise blow to the head. Variants include “point ‘em out, knock ‘em out,” “knockout king,” “one hitter quitter,” “happy slapping” and Polar Bear Hunting. The perpetrators in all cases are black.
The knockout game is not a new phenomenon—the first reported case occurred in 1992—but in the past few years it has become much more widespread. At least seven people have been killed and hundreds, if not more, injured. Another new term is “flash mob,” where a group coordinates through social media to meet in large numbers, often to go on looting and vandalism sprees. Again, the perpetrators are almost always black.
Flaherty reports on mass mob violence that has been going on for decades. In 1989, 50,000 blacks descended on Virginia Beach, Virginia on Labor Day weekend to celebrate “Greek Week.” It degenerated into days of widespread violence and looting. Over 100 stores were damaged, 50 people were injured and 650 arrested. The National Guard had to be called in. Similar violence became associated with “Greek Week” for years afterward and has since spread to many other holiday weekends in Virginia Beach.
The Indiana Black Expo attracts 200,000 people annually and has been associated with widespread violence for over 10 years. After years of silence, the Indianapolis Star reported “a sense of dread” as the 2014 Expo date approached. They weren’t disappointed. Among other acts of violence, 10 people werewounded by gunfire in street violence. The 2011 Urban Beach Weekend in Miami Beach was characterized as a “rolling race riot.” Hip Hop performer Luther Campbell, a co-founder of the event, no longer goes, saying it is too dangerous. Many such events have been canceled because the local community demanded it, including Freak Nik in Atlanta, the Greekfest in Philadelphia, Black Family Reunion in Daytona Beach and others.
Fanning the Flames
It doesn’t help when President Obama mocks America by enlisting race-hustler Al Sharpton as an “advisor.” In the Tawana Brawley case, Sharpton falsely accused white police officers of raping a black woman.
Acting on Obama’s orders, Attorney General Eric Holder has made reverse racism official administration policy. For example, in hearings regarding a new “hate crimes” bill in 2009, Holder stressed that “only historically oppressed minorities” would benefit. After dropping the infamous 2008 voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party, Holder made it clear that the Obama administration will not prosecute any voting rights cases against blacks. Former Civil Rights Division lawyer J. Christian Adams adds that Holder treats cases of racial bias against whites with “open contempt.”
Grade school kids, especially in inner city neighborhoods, are subjected to anti-white racist indoctrination. Students from Booker T. Washington Middle School in Baltimore, Maryland recently attended an event titled “Re-Claim, Re-Pair, Re-Form, Re-Produce—REPARATIONS Now!” at the historically black Morgan State University. Louis Farrakhan was the keynote speaker. He called whites “crackers” andtold the audience:
As long as they kill us and go to Wendy’s and have a burger and go to sleep, they’ll keep killing us. But when we die and they die, then soon we’re going to sit at a table and talk about it! We’re tired! We want some of this earth or we’ll tear this goddamn country up!
There is even a college curriculum that focuses on “White Privilege,” and annual “White Privilege Conferences” are widely attended by teachers and students alike.
We are seeing the result of this indoctrination by academia and the media. In a Detroit courtroom recently, black thugs Fredrick Young and Felando Hunter were sentenced to life for the 2012 robbery, torture and execution of white teenagers Jourdan Bobbish and Jacob Kudla. When given the opportunity to apologize to the victims’ families in court, Young said:
I’d like to say sorry to the families of Aiyanna Jones, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and I want to apologize to them for not being able to get justice for their loved ones who was murdered in cold blood—and in respect for the peaceful protest, I want to say hands up don’t shoot. Black lives matter—that’s it, your honor.
Black author and political commentator Mychal Massie says black lives don’t matter, to blacks. In his video “Just How Much Do Black Lives Matter?” he states:
From 1882 to 1968, 3,446 blacks were lynched. But from 1973 until the present time, a period of 42 years, 17.3 million black babies were aborted. Why don’t we hear about that? Did white policemen do that? That 17.3 million is equivalent to 45 percent of the black population today. So do black lives really matter?
Massie has a unique take on U.S. race relations. He objects strenuously to being singled out by race. “Words like ‘black community’ and being called a ‘minority’ are insults to me,” he told AIM in an interview. “I am an American. How can I be a minority if there are 300 million of me? That is segregation speech. It identifies black people as ‘different.’ People don’t think about these things until you mention them.”
Massie called Ferguson “an undeniable exhibition of the depravity of a people.” He makes the point that civilized people do not burn down their own homes and businesses, adding that Michael Brown was a thug terrorizing his neighborhood, who was going to get shot sooner or later by police or another gangster.
Massie was interviewed for this report. Read the full interview, here.
Famed civil rights icon Dr. Alveda King has a slightly different take. She says that Ferguson protesters did have a point, but that violence is never necessary. “To fix these problems,” she says, “we need to work together on conflict resolution, guided by God’s love, not war.”
Daughter of A.C. King and niece of Martin Luther King, Jr, Dr. Alveda King was also interviewed for this report. Read her full interview, here.
The Communist Roots of Black Racism
Black racism has been encouraged by outside communist agitators, many of them white. Since the turn of the last century, communists have manipulated the civil rights movement, and have been stoking the fires of discontent deliberately. Massie credits lifelong communist and Stalin admirer W.E.B. Du Bois with initiating the international communist movement’s effort to capitalize on black discontent early on. After a visit to the Soviet Union in 1927, Du Bois called it, “the most hopeful vehicle for the world.” Du Bois helped found the NAACP in 1909.
Bayard Rustin, who acknowledged that “blacks were ripe for [manipulation by] Communists,” helped found Martin Luther King, Jr’s Southern Christian Leadership Conference, said that Martin Luther King, Jr.’s movement was corrupted after he was assassinated. Massie states, “Out of that group came Joseph Lowery and others who mouth complaints designed to stir the caldron of anger, victimology and rabid hatred for anyone who dares attempt to share the message of truth and life.” (Ed. Note: Lowery made news in 2012 when campaigning for Obama by saying “all white people would go to Hell.” He said it was a joke.)
The “White Privilege” concept was created by Noel Ignatiev, a hardcore Communist Party member and former Harvard University professor who founded the journal, Race Traitor.
White guilt has allowed the Left to dramatically expand the welfare state. Trillions of dollars have been spent on welfare. Yet, as Mitt Romney recently noted, under Obama “there are more people in poverty in America than ever before.” Many people are unaware, however, that the modern welfare system was designed by radical leftists to suck minorities into permanent poverty, providing a reliable voting bloc for Democrats and sowing the seeds of discontent within the black community. It was inspired by Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, two die-hard socialists, who advocated packing the welfare rolls in order to bankrupt and crash the system. They wanted it to fail. The Cloward Piven Crisis Strategy was formulated to create an army of militant, angry blacks that would serve as foot soldiers in the coming socialist revolution. Piven described the rationale as recently as 2011:
[B]efore people can mobilize for collective action, they have to develop a proud and angry identity and a set of claims that go with that identity. They have to go from being hurt and ashamed to being angry and indignant… So, a kind of psychological transformation has to take place; the out-of-work have to stop blaming themselves for their hard times and turn their anger on the bosses, the bureaucrats or the politicians who are in fact responsible.
Cloward and Piven sought to rig the welfare system for failure to provoke that anger. Their apprentice was Wade Rathke, the founder of ACORN. ACORN’s proud protégé was Barack Hussein Obama.
