Sharpton And Hannity Are Back In The Race Agitation Business!

These two will certainly drive attention to the incident involving an unarmed Black man and the NYPD.

Guess who's getting involved in the Eric Garner situation?

A week ago, the NYPD tried to apprehend a man who was accused of selling loose cigarettes. There was a verbal confrontation and the law had taken the 6'3" 400 lb man down hard. They try to cuff him and he's telling them eight times "he can't breathe". By the time they got off him, he was unconscious and the NYPD and FDNY did nothing to save him.

This unarmed man was being questioned for a petty misdemeanor and the NYPD officers were trying to arrest him.

What drove the situation to involve death was the perception of one of the officers using a stranglehold to take down the man.

This video was posted by eyewitnesses. He posted on the social networks and it went viral. Now the whole world is talking about it. Obviously it's going to make it to the cable news channels with a known history of chasing ratings amid a controversy.

These two agitators who managed to bring front and center a race controversy over a few years ago. These two who both debated on the issues of race and politics. Both use a bullhorn on the AM dial and cable news channels to promote a divisive campaign to bring shame to what they've perceived as a threat to the very nature of American values.

Both have activist ties to controversial organizations and groups. One supports the civil rights movement. He founded the National Action Network. This one also singed a book deal and endorsement deal from rap label Cash Money Entertainment.

One supports the Tea Party. He's a co-chair of the Tea Party Patriots and a board member of the Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny (BOND) founded by a Black extremist.

Both have passionate feelings on the NYPD's handling of an unarmed Black man who was restrained by two plain clothes officers.

Both believe that the excessive use of force was wrong. But both have a different take on the situation.

One believes that even in America, if the slightly infraction merits that type of restraint, then we outta to do something about it by not only protesting the incident but demanding those involved to be charged with a crime.

The other believes that NYPD are doing their jobs. To the other, that Garner should have just put his hands in the air and allow the police to restrain him. He kind believes that Garner agitated the incident by using his freedom of speech to tell the police officers to "get off his back".

Now as they gather their cameramen to the church where the funeral was held, you hear a Black preacher say "revenge". What does that mean?

According to the conservative agitators, they believe that "US BLACK FOLKS" will loot and riot when we don't get our way. If the NYPD officers walk, we tear the town down. That's what is being promoted on that website that "throws shit to the wall". The racist right loves to make us "BLACK FOLKS" look stupid. They think of us as "NATURAL BORN CRIMINALS" and "DA REAL RACISTS".

Obviously Garner gave the racist right the obvious "I DIDN'T DO NUFFINS" excuse.

In the graphic video you hear the man tell the officers that "he did nothing wrong" and "he couldn't breathe" after being taken down.

The world reacts to the harsh treatment of unarmed Black men.

What did the Black man do to deserve this?


NYPD In Trouble Again! Man Dies After Stranglehold! [NSFW]

PHOTO: A 400- pound asthmatic Eric Garner died while being arrested by police in Staten Island.
This wasn't the smartest thing the law did the moment Eric Garner was killed.

The New York Police Department is one of the country's finest but also mot world's most controversial law agencies. They have a known history of police brutality. The NYPD has targeted Blacks, Hispanic/Latinos and Muslims often because of the junk food media's portrayal of criminals. The NYPD often sees us a "NATURAL BORN CRIMINALS".

The NYPD is still reeling after the event that killed a 6'3" 400 lb man who was restrained in a choke hold.

Four EMS dispatchers were terminated after this incident. Two officers were placed on administrative duty pending an investigation into the handling of this.

The video is very disturbing. The NYPD restrain Eric Garner and he tells him he couldn't breathe.

The man was being sought after he was accused of selling cigarettes without a license.

That's not a huge crime, but since this does have to do with illegal commerce, it merits.

His funeral is today and people are outraged by this event.

We here at Journal de la Reyna send our condolences to the family of Eric Garner.

The question to those reading, do you believe that the NYPD handled the situation well or recklessly?

"Dear White People" Will Outrage Conservatives!

A movie that will certainly touch nerves and provoke a conversation about race.

There's a sleeper comedy coming this Fall. This movie is certainly going to piss off the racist right.

Dear White People is an upcoming 2014 American satire drama film written and directed by Justin Simien. The film focuses on black students attending Ivy League college in America and stars Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson, Teyonah Parris, Brandon P Bell, Kyle Gallner, Brittany Curran and Dennis Haysbert.

The film premiered in-competition in the US Dramatic Category at 2014 Sundance Film Festival on January 18, 2014.

It's a play on the stereotypes of Black America and how White people look upon it. At a fictional university, a riot is provoked by a White fraternity who throws a Black themed party.

Mediaite reports that the protagonist, a biracial student named Samantha White (played by Tessa Thompson), uses her college radio platform to lecture the white students at the fictional Ivy League school about how to interact with black people.
The cast of Dear White People.
“Dear white people,” Sam says into the microphone in the trailer, “the minimum requirement of black friends needed to not seem racist has just been raised to two. Sorry, but you’re weed man, Tyrone, does not count.”

“Dear white people, please stop touching my hair.” she says. “Does this look like a petting zoo to you?”

And, “This just in: Dating a black person to piss off your parents is a form of racism.”

Later, when a white student asks her how she would feel if someone started a “Dear Black People” radio show, she replies, “No need. Mass media from Fox News makes it clear what white people think of us.”

Obamacare Got Knocked Down By Federal Judges!

Conservative judges strike down the subsides for the Affordable Care Act.

The president's signature law is under fire once again by the activist court. A three-judge panel ruled in Halbig v. Burwell that people in the 36 states that use the federal health insurance exchange are ineligible for subsidized insurance. The decision would also affect those who purchased insurance through the exchange but don't receive subsidies, as reneging on the payments would lead to a rapid increase in insurance rates for everyone.

Raymond Randolph, a Bush, sr. judge.
The White House said Tuesday the decision will be appealed to the entire D.C. circuit court -- what's known as an en banc review -- where Democrats hold a majority that is nearly certain to overturn the GOP judges' aggressive move. The next step could be the Supreme Court, which already upheld the Affordable Care Act in a separate case two years ago.

The two judges seized on text within the law that said subsidies would be provided to people who purchased insurance on exchanges established by the states. But 36 states declined to set up their own exchanges, and chose to rely on the federal government's exchange instead. Because the law doesn't specifically say that people who bought insurance on the federal exchange also get subsidies, the law's opponents argued that therefore such subsidies are illegal.

"The problem confronting the [ACA] is that subsidies also turn on a third attribute of Exchanges: who established them. Under section 36B, subsidies are available only for plans 'enrolled in through an Exchange established by the State under section 1311 of the [ACA],'" the majority opinion ruled, rejecting the counter-argument that other portions of the law specifically say that a federal exchange set up for a state is by definition a state exchange.

Thomas Griffin, W.'s appointed judge.
Halbig v. Burwell is a lawsuit that challenges the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. A July 8, 2014 Washington Post article described it as being "the next big Obamacare case." On June 30, 2014, the Los Angeles Times said that compared to the recent Burwell v. Hobby Lobby ruling, it was "a far more fundamental challenge to Obamacare."

The lawsuit challenges the power of the federal government to spend money on subsidies for policies that were purchased at the federal exchange. The plaintiff claims that the text of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act only allows federal subsidies for exchanges that were "established by the State under Section 1311."

The Washington Post reported, "Section 1311 instructs states to create exchanges. Federal exchanges are established under Section 1321 of the Act." Subsidies for citizens in 34 states are at risk, because people in those states signed up under the federal exchange.

This is an ongoing situation, we here at Journal de la Reyna will continue to cover this controversy.

The Republicans and their allies once again obsess with a law that benefits millions of Americans who can't afford insurance. This ruling could affect over 4.7 to 10 million who already signed for the federal assistance in healthcare coverage.

Jay And Bey Doing A Banana Split!

The Roc is splitting.

The New York Post (Page Six) is spicing up rumors of the power couple planning on a divorce.

The very discrete and private couple is reporting separating. The rumors are burning up.

Since the Solange Knowles incident, the power couple have been very distant about their relationship.

According to the junk food media sources, this may be happening and you may not even know it.

They are trying to figure out a way to split without divorcing . . . This is a huge concert tour and they've already gotten most of the money from the promoters up front,” the source said.

The media mogul is trying to hire marriage counselors to keep the relationship together.

The ugly rumors of him cheating seem to be growing.

Despite the tens of millions the couple will pocket from the current tour, this will certainly be their last and the end of the tour could officially spell the end of the marriage, the source said.

They both as a couple pull in nearly $359 million.

“There are no rings, if you haven’t noticed,” the source said, admitting that he thought things would get better after the birth of the couple’s daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.

“For just a split moment, things got real for them and she was even talking about adding to the family,” the source said.

“But, after a while, Jay was out doing Jay and Bey was out doing Bey. They made the classic mistake of thinking a child would change everything and help to rekindle the initial fire, and it didn't.”

The racist right hates the power couple. Some conservative agitators have been aggressively and relentlessly criticizing the power couple over their explicit lyrics, their trip to Cuba, the necklace he was wearing, the support for the president, and even their thoughts on the Trayvon Martin and that asshole's situation.

I mean this is a major thing happening in the world. While two celebrity agitators got married a month ago, the power couple who managed six years of marriage are divorcing.

Say it ain't so!

What's your thoughts on the situation?

Farrah Franklin, formerly of Destiny's Child got a few days in county lockup after causing some disorderly conduct in South Carolina.

She was busted for having disorderly conduct. She had a few drinks before she went to town.

Franklin was arrested in South Carolina early Sunday morning for disorderly conduct ... TMZ has learned and our sources tell us alcohol was definitely involved.
