|Black agitators feuding with one another.|
The feud seems to be boiling between Black liberal agitators Rev. Perm (Al Sharpton) and Dr. Cornel West.
You see the New York righteous ones are Black civil rights leaders. Rev. Perm is the host of PoliticsNation on Obama News. He also is a talk radio host and signed entertainer on Cash Money Records.
West on the other hand is a professor of African American studies at the Union Theological Seminary. He was the famous professor of studies at Princeton and Harvard University. He's a frequent collaborator with PBS news agitator Tavis Smiley and they both host a radio show that is on WCPT in Chicago.
West offered harsh words for the March On Washington and the primary speakers.
“Brother Martin himself, I think, would've been turning over in his grave,” West said of the event. “[King would have wanted] people to talk about Wall Street criminality, he wants people to talk about war crimes, or drones dropping bombs on innocent people,” he asserted.
“Instead,” he lamented, “we saw the coronation of the bonafide house negro of the Barack Obama plantation, our dear brother Al Sharpton.” West then declared that Sharpton’s decline was “supported by [MSNBC analyst] Michael Dyson and others who’ve prostituted themselves in a very ugly and vicious way.”
West was once good friends with President Barack Obama and Rev. Perm. All that seemed to change.
He would talk to Amy Goodman of Democracy Now about his outrage.
“…Lincoln isn’t Lincoln if Frederick Douglass isn't pushing him. FDR isn't FDR if A. Philip Randolph and Eleanor Roosevelt aren't pushing him. LBJ isn't LBJ if MLK isn't pushing him.
“We don’t believe in making excuses. We believe that if [Obama] is not pushed, he’s going to be a transactional president and not a transformational president. And we believe that the time is now for action and no longer accommodation. But that doesn't happen unless you’re pushed.”
West even knocked at fellow Black educators Melissa Harris-Perry and Michael Eric Dyson. They are liberal agitators who a featured host on Obama News as well.
I love Brother Mike Dyson… but we’re living in a society where everybody is up for sale. Everything is up for sale. And he and Brother Sharpton and Sister Melissa and others, they have sold their souls for a mess of Obama pottage. And we invite them back to the black prophetic tradition after Obama leaves. But at the moment, they want insider access, and they want to tell those kind of lies. They want to turn their back to poor and working people.
I would expect that Rev. Perm and Melissa Harris-Perry will no longer invite Tavis Smiley and West on their programs for the time being.
Scratch that! Melissa Harris-Perry will address West in some fashion soon! So I will say she'll debate him in the coming weeks.
Now didn't I say I can't stand West and Smiley!
Okay, here's your moment in the sun. There are Black extremists. You may think of people like Rev. Perm, Cut His Nuts Off Jackson, President Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, or even the First Lady Michelle Obama to be extremists.
You're dead wrong!
The president is an elected leader. You may not like him whether for his policies, his race or his actions. That's fine. But he's no where near the extreme some of these folks paint him out to be.
I call Rev. Perm and Cut His Nuts Off Jackson, two civil rights leaders that piss off the racist right. They're Black liberal agitators who inspire action. Just like Chalk E. Becker and Palin Da Ass, these guys are in the game of group hoarding. If they speak, people will listen.
You don't have to be Justin Bieber to know that the old school folks love to see people they've grown accustomed to see everyday ranting and raving.
But for Tavis Smiley and Cornel West, I can at least say their the Black extremists the racist right outta be focusing on. Sure they're good friends with White people and all. I understand that. But deep down inside, I think they're actively supporting a race war just like That Guy Who Throws Shit To The Wall and other extremists.
These two bozos are B-list Black agitators who are jealous of Rev. Perm getting a show and they're being shown the door.
You can't blame them for being passionate about the Black community and issues in the world. They have a right to say whatever they're programmed to say.
But do we have to listen.?
Just like those dolts who support that "no accomplishment" turd Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky). They idol worship a politico who (like his daddy) has nothing but conspiracies masquerading as accomplishments.
Name one thing that Paul has accomplished in the nearly three years of him being in the U.S. Senate?
And I am talking about legislation victories he sponsored.
Anyways, Black extremism is alive and well. I didn't pass off on the extremism within the Black community.
It's not a gang ritual or a group mentality.
It's a few individuals who are so off the rails with issues they don't see clearly or they are the vocal minority in a group that's overwhelmingly against them.
Cornel Ronald West (born June 2, 1953) is an American philosopher, academic, activist, author, public intellectual, and prominent member of the Democratic Socialists of America.
Cornel West publicly supported 2008 Democratic Presidential candidate then US Senator Barack Obama. He spoke to over 1,000 of his supporters at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, N.Y.C., on November 29, 2007.
West has described himself as a "non-Marxist socialist" (partly because he cannot reconcile Marxism with Christianity) and serves as honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America, which he has described as "the first multiracial, socialist organization close enough to my politics that I could join".
West criticized President Obama when Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, saying that it would be difficult for Obama to be "a war president with a peace prize"; West further retracted his support for Obama in an April 2011 interview, stating that Obama is "a black mascot of Wall Street oligarchs and a black puppet of corporate plutocrats. And now he has become head of the American killing machine and is proud of it."
In November 2012, West said in an interview that he considered Obama a "Rockefeller Republican in blackface."
Melissa Harris-Perry, a professor of political science at Tulane University, criticized what she described as the "utter hilarity" of West's statements, writing that his comments are a "classic projection of his own comfortably ensconced life at Harvard and Princeton Universities" and that West "offers thin criticism of President Obama and stunning insight into the delicate ego of the self-appointed black leadership class".
West later called Harris-Perry a "fake and a fraud".
In 2011, West participated in a "Poverty Tour" with Tavis Smiley, his co-host on the Public Radio International program Smiley & West. The tour became a two-part special on their radio program as well as a five-night special on the PBS television program Tavis Smiley. They recounted their experience on the tour in their 2012 bestselling book The Rich and the Rest of Us. The stated aim of the tour was to highlight the plight of the impoverished population of the United States prior to the 2012 Presidential Election, whose candidates West and Smiley stated had ignored the plight of the poor.
I wonder what Dr. Cornel West thinks of Senator Tim Scott (R-South Carolina)?
Here's the video.
Quite interesting that the junk food media flips out when they see children of color holding firearms.
But when you see those little White kids holding firearms, it's just so cute and just a "parenting bond".
The FBI and Los Angeles Police Department are cracking down on gangs. The Crips, one of the nation's oldest and most dangerous domestic terrorist group had members post their children on the social networks holding firearms.
The Huffington Post reports that law enforcement worked on the "Operation Thumbs Down." It had roughly 800 FBI agents and LAPD officers Thursday arrested about three dozen alleged members of the infamous Rollin’ 30s Harlem Crips street gang.
So there's probably a mole in the group that set them up! Usually a member who's a federal informant is helping law enforcement track the movements. Federal informants usually commit crimes while gathering information about the ringleader.
A federal informant is usually involved with the group who promotes in child prostitution, illegal gambling, drug smuggling, usage of counterfeit electronics, food and clothing.
During their investigation, authorities found photos on social media sites of children posing with guns, including a young girl in Disney pajamas holds what appears to be an assault weapon.
"Clearly, there's no good reason to put a firearm in the hands of a child," Laura Eimiller, spokeswoman for the FBI, told The Huffington Post. "It's an indication of the violent nature of the gang and the impact of its gang members."
The Rollin 30s Crips is a "multi-generational gang" with up to 1,000 members, according to the FBI. It is considered one of LA's most violent gangs, Eimiller said.
“When you grow up in a culture like that, violence becomes … second nature," Los Angeles Police Department Cmdr. Bill Scott said at a press conference Thursday. "And that’s the cycle we’re trying to disrupt.”
The raid took place at 5 a.m. Thursday at roughly 70 different locations. Agents seized 32 guns and more than 10 kilograms of rock cocaine. Two suspects -- bolded in the list below -- are still at large and being sought, Eimiller said.
Thirty-five alleged members and leaders of the gang were taken into custody and face a number of federal and state charges, including drug trafficking, money laundering and unlicensed dealing of firearms.
The operation was dubbed Thumbs Down in reference to hand gestures used by the gang, including two thumbs pointed upward, representing the “H” in the word “Harlem.”
Police also said they believe some of the members conducted a series of “knock-knock” burglaries -- referred to by the gang as “floccin" -- in which they break into homes if no one answers the door.
Since 2008, there have been 29 homicides, 1,075 assaults and 1,100 robberies on the gang's South LA turf, the FBI said.
If convicted, most of the defendants face prison terms ranging from 5 to 30 years in federal time out.
Those charged federally are listed below:
• Stephen Bayliss, aka “Iceberg”—30, currently in federal custody
• Michael Byars, aka “Wanetti”—55, Inglewood
• Jesus De La Hoya, aka “Jesse”—40, Mira Loma
• Anthoney Edwards, aka “Three Leaf”—23, currently in state custody
• Frank Fisher, aka “Boons”—23, Los Angeles
• Rayeisha Glenn, aka “Ray Ray”—35, Los Angeles
• Kenneth Green, aka “Gin”—36, Los Angeles
• Kevin Green, aka “Young Watt”—31, Los Angeles
• Jovan Harris, aka “Headache”—34, Los Angeles
• Clavern Luckett, aka “Uncle D”—38, Los Angeles
• Gary Luckett, aka “Uncle Gary”—39, Los Angeles
• Kelly Martin, aka “Cartoon”—43, Compton
• Don Mosley, aka “Whino”—34, currently in state custody
• Edward Norwood, aka “Polo”—33, Los Angeles (federal fugitive)
• Brandon Robertson, aka “BK”—31, Los Angeles (federal fugitive)
• Alan Ross, aka “Big Choo”—37, Los Angeles
• Darlene Sebatta—38, Los Angeles
• Ernest Sluch, aka “E-Rocc”—47, Los Angeles
• Jason Thurton, aka “CT”—35, Long Beach
• Emerie Tims, aka “Mac”—34, Long Beach
• Moses Williams, aka “Termite”—34, Los Angeles
If you arrested in a federal crime and convicted, you are heading to federal time out. You will have to serve the full sentence in the federal time out. There's no time off for good behavior.
Street gangs, pimps and white supremacists groups are domestic terrorist. They are engaging in some act of terror upon their victims.
Hey, here's some pictures of children holding firearms. Wonder if the FBI is cracking down on these people who show pictures of their children holding firearms too.
Now if you happen to see Blacks, Latinos or even Muslims having firearms (or in the case of their children), these very same individuals want to have them locked up.

|Entertainer gets a Trayvon Martin tattoo.|
A few days ago, I peeped the internet for celebrity news agitation. Once in a while, I happen to stumble across that Compton rapper who always seems to have a message to the latest events tatted somewhere on his body.
The Game (Jayecon Taylor) is very active in the studio and follows the news wires on the latest issues in America. The rapper is preparing for reality television and wants to record his sixth album.
Last year he released J3sus Piece (Jesus Piece) on Interscope and featured Big Sean, Lil' Wayne, Tyga, Future, Young Jeezy. J. Cole and Jamie Foxx.
It attracted controversy because it depicted the rapper as Jesus of The Nazareth being a Blood member.
The Turd Flipper and the rapper traded insults online and the public sector. This will piss her off again.
Well the rapper wanted to show solidarity towards most of Black America. We're still pissed over the George Zimmerman verdict.
Last month, "We Black Folk" didn't loot and riot! Squashing the dreams of the racist right. They've predicted "us Black folk" would riot and loot if George Zimmerman would walk free in the shooting and killing of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin.
|Trayvon Martin inked on the back arm of rapper Game.|
Many of "us Black folk" were concerned that we would react violently to the decision. Of course the racist right wanted to make the case for Chris Lane by claiming the teenagers who killed him were "flaming hot racists" mad over the decision and every Black on White crime has to be "for Trayvon".
The racist right may chant all the stories in the world about Black criminals. That's fine.
But it hasn't stop the March On Washington. It didn't stop the president from expressing his concerns about how Whites picture "us Black folk" as "natural born criminals". It didn't stop people like The Game from recording songs about Trayvon Martin or even showing an ounce of support.
See the entertainer is a father too and his children could be the next Trayvon.
Artistic Element’s Roman Abrego – the tattoo artist for rapper and reality TV show star The Game –shared through Instagram video The Game’s new tattoo. It shows Martin’s hooded photo in permanent ink on his leg. The hooded picture of Martin has been a sign of symbolism at different protests, where many wore one dedicated to the victim.
Other entertainers have also been paying their respects to Martin. During her show in Tennessee, Beyonce asked concertgoers for a moment of silence after the jury came back from deliberation. Rapper Young Jeezy released a song “It’s A Cold World” as a tribute to Martin.
The fatal shooting of the 17-year-old Martin on Feb. 26, 2012 in Sanford, Fla. became one of the most controversial trials of the year.\
George Zimmerman, the neighborhood-watch volunteer who fatally shot Martin in the altercation, was acquitted by a jury of second degree murder and manslaughter charges last month. The reaction to the verdict led to protests and marches of people contesting the “stand-your-ground” law, which is a type of self-defense law that gives someone the right to use deadly force to defend themselves.
While the Martin family, famous politicians and protesters fight to have the “stand-your ground” law removed, others are using their entertainment status to make a difference.
Did you know that someone created a game based off the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman situation?
A person created an Android phone app that created a scenario in which the thug kills White people. The app was pulled after a huge backlash.
The Game appears on Interscope Records.
LovelyTi2002 elaborates on the controversy.
And like always he got it wrong. But since Loserville is the channel that promotes the talking points of conservative agitators, it's not going sway anyone's mindset.
According to his own statements The March On Washington event excluded black Republicans and conservatives. Bill-O said that “All the speakers were Democrats. That was a glaring error and does not indicate a desire for inclusion.”
Many of the speeches were uplifting and respecting to America, but not all, according to the Factor host. Marc Morial, president of the National Urban League, said this: “Somewhere along the way, white sheets were traded for buttoned down white shirts. Attack dogs and water hoses were traded for Tasers and widespread implementation of stop and frisk policies. Nooses were traded for handcuffs.”
Bill-O says this is “grievance mongering” and slap to the heroes of civil rights.
Bill-O says that President Barack Obama advocates "illusiveness" of achieving the American dream.
“Whose fault is that? The reason working Americans are having such a hard time is twofold. First, Mr. Obama’s attempt to manage the economy from Washington – that has largely failed. The private sector must drive economic expansion, not the Feds.” says the conservative agitator.
|We're busy! Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). He and Congressman Eric Cantor (R-Virginia, House Majority Leader) were invited but declined.|
Bill-O didn't listen to the speech. He figured that the president is "boring" and too much like a "professor".
Code words for "uppity!"
“[…] If we're honest with ourselves, we'll admit that during the course of 50 years, there were times when some of us, claiming to push for change, lost our way. […] Legitimate grievances against police brutality tipped into excuse-making for criminal behavior.” - President Barack Obama.
Bill-O would say, “And what had once been a call for equality of opportunity, the chance for all Americans to work hard and get ahead was too often framed as a mere desire for government support, as if we had no agency in our own liberation, as if poverty was an excuse for not raising your child and the bigotry of others was reason to give up on yourself. All of that history is how progress stalled.”
He called it an important and accurate statement, but also charged that the president and civil rights leaders want the government to provide for those who fail, even if it’s their own fault.
“The left wants paternalism, cradle-to-grave protections. And if you oppose that philosophy, there’s something wrong with you, and in some cases, they’ll accuse you of bigotry.”
As far as it goes, conservatives believe that the event was another attempt to play upon "racial grievance".
It's an event that worships President Barack Obama. After all they were flying around a flag with his image.
Besides Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter's mentors were once the segregationists who voted against civil rights anyways.
The Republicans were responsible for the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965. It was those Dixiecrats who stood in the way of passing civil rights.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican, don't you know!
But as the White conservatives and conservative agitators of color repeat these false talking points over and over, their allies in the Republican Party have passed restrictive voter identification laws. The conservative wing of the Supreme Court struck down a portion of the Voting Rights Act. It makes it possible for state legislators to create voting precincts that could make it harder for the elderly and minorities to have access to the ballot box.
You may have heard of C.L. Bryant, the former NAACP president of Garland, Texas. He's the newest Black tin soldier of the racist right. He defends the Republican faithful. He is a member of the Tea Party and a co-chair for Freedom Works. Bryant has defended the group against allegations of racism. He is the founder of OneNationBacktoGod.com and the creator of the independent film documentary Runaway Slave, "a movie about the race to free the Black community from the slavery of tyranny and progressive policies."
He along with Alveda King, Dr. Benjamin Carson, Deenen Borelli, Juan Williams, Jesse Lee Peterson, Allen West as the Black tin soldiers of the racist right. They are the defenders of the bigotry, hate, and divisiveness within the Republican Party.
These guys are getting massive airplay on Loserville and Bill-O and That Guy Who Helped Obama Win are willing to have these guys on. Willing to allow these Black extremists say some of the most nastiest things about the Black community. After all if there's a Black person talking negative about the Black community, there's no racism.
The Guy Who Throws Shit To The Wall posted on Wednesday evening that the only Black senator wasn't invited to the March On Washington event. Calling it an act of segregation.
Senator Tim Scott (R-South Carolina) created a controversy where there was none. The racist right claims that the event barred Republicans. Being the only Black lawmaker in the U.S. Senate, one would think that's an accomplishment. He was promoted to U.S. Senator this year after Jim DeMint resigned to run the Heritage Foundation.
It turns out that Scott was invited to attend. He didn't want no part of it. The racist right claimed that Scott wasn't invited to speak at Wednesday’s 50th anniversary March on Washington.
Scott’s office declined an invitation to attend the ceremony as a spectator, according to a source connected to the event.
|I've would have came but there were too many Black folks there! - Senator Tim Scott (R-South Carolina)|
And based on an email exchange obtained by CQ Roll Call, the South Carolina Republican did receive an invitation to attend the festivities commemorating Martin Luther King Jr.’s delivery of the famous “I Have a Dream” speech.
The invitation, sent August 8th from the Coalition for the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, appears to have been a form letter to all members of Congress, with invitees listed as “Representative” rather than by name.
Within a day, Rachel Shelbourne, a staff assistant to Scott, had replied to the email with the following message:
“Thank you for extending to Senator Tim Scott the invitation to the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington on August 28th. Unfortunately, the Senator will be in South Carolina during this time, so he will be unable to attend the event. Please do, however, keep him in mind for future events you may be hosting.”
He's running for reelection (to serve the remaining term) in 2014 along with Senator Lindsay Graham R-South Carolina).
Turns out that an invite was sent to Scott, Congressmen John Boehner (R-Ohio), Congressman Eric Cantor (R-Virginia) and the Bush family. Each of them declined an offer to attend. Boehner is the current House Speaker and Cantor is the Republican Majority Leader.
George W. Bush is recovering from a heart surgery. George H.W. Bush is wheelchair bound and hardly makes speaking engagements.
Looks like Bill-O owes the people an apology.
You know that Bill-O would have been invited to the event. His friend Rev. Perm would be happy to have him at the podium. After all, I mean there's no one in the crowd saying "M-Fer I want more ice tea!"
Rev. Perm was a headliner at the March On Washington event. He offers Bill-O some advice about jumping to conclusions and what the Republican Party can do if they want to win Black voters.
See how he delivers the message.

|Ex-Republican congressman acting a fool yet again! The dead beat Joe Walsh wants Blacks to achieve his dream of being out of the hood and into serving his buddies at the table.|
He was defeated by Democrat Tammy Duckworth, a double amputee military veteran. She is the first Asian American woman from Illinois to serve in the U.S. congress.
He is one of the many known Republican assholes who open mouth insert foot and part of their ass in.
He is annoying. Just like Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky), Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah), Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota), Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), Congressman Steve King (R-Iowa), Congressman Steve Stockman (R-Texas) and Congressman Darrell Issa (R-California).
Even out of the public limelight requires a former member of Congress to at least show dignity.
Apparently, the dead beat can't stay out of trouble. He can't keep his trap shut about race in America.
Is this what the Republican Party represents?
Because this is what they think of the Black community, President Barack Obama and others of non-color.
They can line up the Black tin soldiers of the conservative media and racist right. Wind them up and make them move around and speak their two pennies of ignorance on behalf of the Black community.
He's some talk radio agitator in Chicago. Apparently he's gearing up for Savage Weiner or King Hippo's position when they croak. He're his version of an "I Have A Dream" speech. Prepare yourselves for the vomit bag.
Today marks the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s iconic “I Have a Dream” speech during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963.
Unless you've been living under a rock, you should know that today is the anniversary, as over the last week, every columnist, pundit and cable news host has been emphatically asking if Dr. King’s dream has been realized.
In the build-up to this momentous occasion, many people have invoked King’s legacy to promote their own various causes. Yesterday, President Obama was asked by morning radio host Tom Joyner what King would think of Obamacare.
The president quickly responded that King, “would like it.” While our commander-in-chief usurped King’s dream to selfishly promote his own legacy, our country’s race-baiter-in-chief, Rev. Al Sharpton is using this week to push back against the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent ruling to strike down parts of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
Of all the commentators who have been asking whether King’s dream has been achieved, FOX News’ Juan Williams seems to be the only one with whom I agree. When asked by Chris Wallace if the dream has been fulfilled,
Williams noted that there isn't, “any question that [African Americans] have come along way,” before importantly pointing out that blacks have to address the problems that are created within their communities.
“I think that if you look at the realities of today, you've got to talk about things like family breakdown,” Williams said.
“You've got to talk about the fact that 70 percent of black children today are born out of wedlock. I think Dr. King would cry.”
I agree with Juan, but instead of invoking King’s legacy to lament about present problems I’ve decided to share my own dream.
I have a dream that all black parents will have the right to choose where their kids attend school.
I have a dream that all black boys and girls will grow up with a father.
I have a dream that young black men will stop shooting other young black men.
I have a dream that all young black men will say “no” to gangs and to drugs.
I have a dream that all black young people will graduate from high school.
I have a dream that young black men won’t become fathers until after they’re married and they have a job.
I have a dream that young unmarried black women will say “no” to young black men who want to have sex.
I have a dream that today’s black leadership will quit blaming racism and “the system” for what ails black America.
I have a dream that black America will take responsibility for improving their own lives.
I have a dream that one day black America will cease their dependency on the government plantation, which has enslaved them to lives of poverty, and instead depend on themselves, their families, their churches, and their communities.
Hey Joe, do me a favor! Take care of them five kids! You're "unemployed" and you can't raise them children. You're a 50 something year old White guy. How the hell can you say that Black women are unmarried and having children when you were twice divorce and owing the government hundreds of dollars for failure to appear and child support?
You and Allen West need to take a seat and go back to the abyss. The Tea Party is dead.
There's a reason to continue the march for progress and prosperity. It's because of people like him. He's the reason why I conclude that Republicans are the condescending bigots the left points them out to be.
Keep lining up these clowns up and we'll be having a circus.
This is a reason to defeat the Republicans in the midterm elections.

|Obama: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s speech inspired a nation. King. The 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington.|
President Barack Obama, former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter are headliners at the 50th Anniversary of the March On Washington. It's not clear if the two other living presidents will be speakers at this event, but the Bushes aren't speaking. It's clear that Republicans have no intent on making any statements on this historic day.
Oh, I see that The Guy Who Throws Shit On The Wall posted that Senator Tim Scott (R-South Carolina) wasn't "invited" to the event. He could of have went to the event. The more the better. But unlike, the president, Scott doesn't have any intentions to help those of color. Scott would never have been there. He wouldn't even join the Historically Black Caucus members.
The racist right once had Chalk E. Becker, Alveda King and Palin Da Ass speak on the steps of the Lincoln memorial for their stupid Tea Party rally. They had the audacity to speak upon the name of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. while attacking the first Black president.
Alveda King is the niece of the late civil rights leader. She thinks "Uncle Martin" was a great man. Being only a single digit at the time of his death, she and others created the notion that her uncle was a Republican.
And also being a former member of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, King has spoke out against her cousins (the surviving children of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.) and the NAACP for advocating a "racist" agenda against Whites and the Republican Party.
President Barack Obama delivers his passionate remarks.
His speech would have detractors. The detractors are of course, the racist right.
They'll complain no matter what the president does!
So it wouldn't matter.
|Television judge was drunk on camera ranting about being fired from his longtime program.|
Since CBS Studios canceled the hit television judge's show, you get to see the worst in him.
Especially under alcohol.
WorldStarHipHop, the entertainment agitator put out a video of Judge Joe Brown in a drunken rant about how he is "pissed" off about his "gig" being cut off.
Judge Joe Brown first went on the air in 1998. Before that, he was a real life criminal courts judge in Shelby County, Tennessee. He started his career as a lawyer and was the first African American prosecutor in Memphis, Tennessee earlier in his career.
Brown won fame when as the real judge in Shelby County, Tennessee, he presided over the appeal of James Earl Ray, who murdered Martin Luther King Jr. Brown was later removed from that case over charges of bias but by then he had caught the eye of the same producers and distributors behind Judge Judy.
Both Judge Brown and Judge Judy are produced in the same Hollywood facility, with courtrooms adjacent to each other. Both are produced by Big Ticket Television, a division of CBS, and distributed by CBS’s CTD.
Brown wasn't the first African American to be a TV judge but he has become the longest running.
You may have found Judge Joe Brown on many Fox/My Network TV stations or CW station. For a few more months or until the repeats air, you'll find the television judge on many syndication networks.
Take for example, Bounce TV. That's TV Our Way!
I guess that salary dispute drove him to drink heavily. It happened to be something that CBS executives saw in the judge after the cameras were off and he was a normal person.
Being a washed up celebrity has finally taken its toll on him.
|Newark mayor Cory Booker is addressing gay rumors.|
The candidate for the open U.S. Senate seat in New Jersey may have stepped one foot out the door and may eventually come out the closet.
The Newark mayor Cory Booker is one of the rising stars in politics. He declared his interest in running for senate a few years back to take on ailing Frank Lautenberg.
The ailing senator died this year and now it streamlined Booker's intent to run.
Now as he's now the Democratic nominee, he's getting flack from the left and the right. The left thinks that Booker is too inexperienced and they think his business intentions along with his cozy relationships with Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and the Republican governor Chris Christie are too controversial.
What got the news buzzing about the Super Mayor is his love life.
The Washington Post interviews the Newark mayor and they get to talking about why he hasn't settled down with a woman.
After that, Booker says, he started dating more — although, he clarifies, not with Arianna Huffington, with whom he was rumored to have been involved. But he has kept that part of his life private because he says he needs some sacred spaces. Huffington is the president of AOL News and founder of The Huffington Post.
“Because how unfair is it to a young lady to put them in the spotlight if they haven’t signed up for that yet?” he says. “And people who think I’m gay, some part of me thinks it’s wonderful. Because I want to challenge people on their homophobia. I love seeing on Twitter when someone says I’m gay, and I say, ‘So what does it matter if I am? So be it. I hope you are not voting for me because you are making the presumption that I’m straight.’ ”
The right openly hates this guy. They think he's another Barack Obama. They think of the president as a "Socialist", "Marxist", "racist", "anti-American", "ineffective leader". That's what Booker will be facing if he should intent on running for president in 2016.
Now if he would win the U.S. Senate special election, he will serve out the remaining term. He will join Senator Tim Scott (R-South Carolina). Scott is the only Black senator. Mo Cowan, the first Black man to served as a Massachusetts senator. He served the term for eight months. Scott has signaled intention to run for a full term in 2014.
Ed Markey (D-Massachusetts) is the current senator. He won the special election and took office this month.
The Washington Post stated that during Saturday’s events for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, Cory Booker dabbed his dome with a white handkerchief on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and bellowed, “We still have work to do.” The next morning, the mayor of Newark appeared as a guest on NBC’s “Meet the Press” and bemoaned “too much division going on in our politics.”
Booker is no stranger to Washington. His parents met here. He was born here. He spent his Christmas breaks from Oxford here. Now a political sensation and media darling with nearly 1.5 million Twitter followers, the 44-year-old seems to have been engineered in a political lab to walk the halls of Congress.
He has gained a reputation for his personal involvement in public service, including going on a ten-day hunger strike outdoors to draw attention to the dangers of open-air drug dealing, living on a "food stamp" budget to raise awareness of food insecurity, shoveling the driveway of a constituent upon request, allowing Hurricane Sandy victims into his home, helping a constituent propose to his girlfriend, rescuing a dog from freezing temperatures, saving a woman from a house fire at his own risk and rescuing a dog that had been locked in a crate.
Considered one of the most prominent Democrats in New Jersey, he formally declared his candidacy for the United States Senate in the 2013 special election to succeed Frank Lautenberg, who died in office. Prior to announcing his decision to run for the Senate, Booker had been considering a run in 2014, and following this announcement Lautenberg had announced (prior to his death) that he would not seek reelection in 2014. On August 13, he won the Senate Democratic primary, and will face Steve Lonegan in the October 16 general election.
|Apparently the conservative agitator hated the March On Washington celebration. She goes off on the civil rights leaders and Congressman John Lewis (D-Georgia).|
And she knows Congressman John Lewis (D-Georgia). Media Matters for America puts another huge one out there for the folks to decide on.
Laura Ingraham (Lo-In) is a fixture as the official stand in for Bill-O.
Lo-In competes in an industry of sharks. She been bounced from network to network affiliate for the last ten years now and it's apparently going to happen again. Sometimes some of the stuff she says is pretty stupid.
Media Matters has always keep the conservative agitators in the spotlight whenever they say something so offensive, the advertisers distance themselves from them.
The Raw Story reports that Ingraham was bitching about the March On Washington commentators.
|Congressman John Lewis (D-Georgia) is an active participant in the Civil Rights Movement. He was criticized by that conservative agitator. That agitator personally knows Lewis.|
“But it all comes down to just George Zimmerman?” she asked. “The goal was, as our caller said, to divide. To co-opt the legacy of Martin Luther King into a modern day liberal agenda, a left-wing agenda, progressive agenda. Whatever you want to call it. From gay marriage to immigration amnesty was thrown in for good measure. We talked about the Voting Rights Act.”
To make her point about immigration, Ingraham played a portion of Lewis’ speech.
“We must say to the Congress, pass comprehensive immigration reform,” Lewis said. “It doesn’t make sense that millions of our people…”
But the congressman’s remarks were interrupted by a loud echoing gunshot followed by a few moments of silence. Ingraham offered no explanation for the sound effect.
In a 1965 march for voting rights that would come to be known as “Bloody Sunday,” Lewis had his skull fractured by Alabama State Troopers while walking across the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Even after his friend Martin Luther King Jr. was killed by a gunman in 1968, Lewis continued his commitment to the civil rights movement. He went on to settle in Georgia and run for Congress.

|Black man claims that he was assaulted by "bleach bomb". Was it a racist attack?|
There's far too many "incidents" of people claiming that they were attacked by an unknown assailant who happened to throw a household cleaning item in their faces. I've heard this story over and over again.
I do have sympathy for those who were injured by type of attacks. I mean who wants to be killed by a hazardous chemical attack?
I've heard it all before. In the age of digital media, somewhere on the campus of The University of Texas, there was a camera and a witness somewhere. Somebody knows what's going on!
And if there's not enough evidence to prove an intruder injured the victim, clearly I will call this a racial hoax!
I don't believe it until there's a video proof that an attack occurred.
That's kind of harsh but I am tired of these stories popping up in the news and these incidents turn out to be fake.
I remind myself of the woman from Washington state who ended up doing herself bodily harm and tried to pin it on a Black woman. Bethany Storro put drain cleaner on her face and let that stuff permanently injure her face. Now whenever this stuff comes to mind, I will always come to my mind, the victim was the attacker.
I keep thinking of Ashley Todd, the former John McCain volunteer worker who curved a backwards "B" in her face. Todd claimed that a big Black guy attacked her and assaulted her for the fact she's not a supporter of Barack Obama. I think of these incidents as a play to rile up political opposition.
These type of incidents would have sparked vigilante attacks against Black or Hispanic men. These incidents will agitate conservative talk radio and the White extremist movement.
So again, I don't believe it until there's proof. That's video and witnesses other than the victim.
An investigation is underway over a so-called "bleach bomb" attack reportedly perpetrated against an African-American student at the University of Texas at Austin. The incident echoes similar occurrences that shook the school's minority community last year and sparked campus protests.
The student who was apparently targeted, UT junior Bryan Davis, told Austin-based FOX 7 that he was walking to a friend's house past an apartment complex popular with students when he was hit with what he says was a chemical-filled balloon.
"I kind of just hear something exploding near me and I feel a light sting on my leg," Davis told FOX 7.
The 21-year-old also said he believes he was targeted because of his skin color.
Bleach, a chemical used to whiten clothes, makes a potentially derogatory statement when thrown at a minority student.
"People might look at it as a prank, but to be a minority at such a large school, even pranks like this, it doesn't come off the way you think it might when you're doing it," he told FOX 7, adding that the incident was "humiliating and embarrassing."
While Davis was not injured, Austin Police Corporal David Boyd explained to local station KEYE-TV why such attacks are dangerous.
"Bleach gets in your eyes [and] it could potentially blind you," said Boyd.
Last fall, multiple reports of bleach-filled balloons being thrown at UT minority students made national headlines and prompted a contentious march through the same West Campus neighborhood where Davis reported the alleged attack on Thursday. Some students claimed last year the bleach bombs were not racially motivated, while others contended that racial epithets had accompanied the balloons on at least one occasion.
Davis says he views his peers and his community differently after last week.
"I feel like a fool having had so much pride in front of others about the school I go to," Davis told local blog the Burnt Orange Report. "Now I can't help but to feel embarrassed for both myself and the school for the reputation it's starting to get as being hostile towards blacks, Asians and other minorities."
By the way, you wonder where I get my information from.
As you know I read online stories from the news agitators. The Huffington Post and That Guy Who Throws Shit On The Wall are two primary websites I often check when I want to rant off about society's ills.
Helping these individuals get richer while the general public is dumb down. You may of heard of the controversy sparked by that teenage entertainer twerking her butt in front of an older entertainer.
Well I don't care about that stuff. They're not me and I am certainly not them. I got more things to worry about than two adults showing off their raunchy dancing. You don't like it, turn off the freaking television.
For Pete's sake, it's an entertainment channel. Get over it.

|A harsh criticism of conservatives in general.|
I doubt I'll win some friends here today! But I have to be quite honest about the situation in America, it's in dire straights. I am certainly not shy to share my disgust towards this political class.
I think of it as a dying breed. A truly dying breed of ignoramuses and idiots.
Instead of calling these people conservatives, I'll refer to them as people who fuel the racist right.
The racist right are individuals with the sole purpose to agitate a group of extremists with rhetoric that paints Blacks as an enemy.
I will spare you the nonsense and cut to the chase.
Conservatives are stupid. Period.
|You make this guy rich. He makes millions off the backs of the gullible listeners of his radio program.|
Conservatives are seriously disturbed. They have nothing better to do. So they'll read something from an anti-Obama website, or conservative forum!
So when I think of the recent controversies and the way they express their opinion of President Barack Obama, I shake my head in disgust.
So here's what I believe. When conservatives play race card, it's only played when they're on the losing side of a debate.
The Republican Party and their conservative allies are atoned to the card.
They love to place it in Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama's back pocket to say "oh it's those niggers who play the race card, not us!"
I will not rest until conservatives are defeated in the election.
It takes one white person (particularly white males) and their gutless outrage over things that they apparently disagree with. See if white people (again mostly white males) weren't so uptight about Blacks, Hispanics/Latinos, illegal immigrants, independent women, same sex couples and President Barack Obama, then you would not receive hate from these groups.
See President Obama lets this shit roll off his skin. Me, you and thousands of arm chair generals fail at that one.
You'll be pissed after reading this one.
The Republican Party and its allies in the conservative movement boycott with their mouths and firearms.
They try to rewrite history off the backs of the Black community. The Republicans and its allies in the conservative movement aren't focused on serious issues like the economy.
|Talks about an issue over and over.|
Conservatives are too busy wrapping their asses around the American flag in preparedness of another ridiculous culture war.
And it's probably why conservatives are give me such a headache with this labeling of anyone who doesn't support their views as a "traitor" or "liberal".
I don't have to agree with liberals or conservatives to be an independent.
You people don't know my political views, and quite clearly I am not going to explain them!
Truth is, the Democratic Party has been the most responsible in handling issues with the economy, minorities, the middle class, the working class, the lower class, LGBT, those who practice in Islam.
These are the people who contribute to helping President Barack Obama (for the record) secure a second term. Barack Obama is a testament of the Democratic Party's evaluation into the future.
|Constantly bitching about issues.|
Most in the Black community expected the white hot racism and dog whistle politics to flourish within the Republican Party and its allies in the conservative movement. It's was just a matter of time and another election year for this to play forth on YouTube and many other social networks.
No matter what what's been told, conservatives will never get it through their sponge soaked heads that the Democratic Party is the party of progress.
|Say things that may divide families and destroy households. Let alone inspire violent events to occur.|
There's plenty of these ignorant ass White people online. They play upon the fears of Black leaders, athletes, entertainers and culture in their attempt to broad brush us as the reasons for economic turmoil in the United States.
Republicans and conservatives rewriting of history will never succeed. It proves that its a purely agenda driven attempt to whitewash the very history, conservatives never had participated or lived through.
Conservatives are totally misinformed by the narratives they've siphon off the far right blogs that you've grown accustomed to!
I am tired of wasting my time dealing with assholes on the internet.
|Use racial fear to stroke extremists into vigilante justice.|
I guess since all the shit you're throwing at me makes me a liberal, commie, socialist, anti-American. I guess I can claim that you're a racist, totalitarian, Fascist, overreaching, bigot with limited education above high school level.
It's a shame that conservatives bent over backwards in this cesspool of ignorance masquerading this narrative that progressives (liberals) are the reasons for the extremism that the far right created.
If you look at the presidential candidates from the last election, they represent the mindset of people who are racist.
|Attack a person's character just because they don't agree with you!|
Conservatives are single minded voters who throw out everything to deny the facts that are proven by historians, living citizens who've been there and those who continue to fight in honor of those who suffered.
It's a good thing that some who engage in word vomiting are hiding behind the computer. You wouldn't dare say any of this shit to any person's face! I hope that someone knocks your ass out! What we really need to do! We have to separate white humans from those filthy smelly ass whites (such as yourself) who troll the internet with hate of their own race let alone the non-whites.
Conservatives are fucking the game up with this baseless ignorance. Whenever I read or listen to a conservative rant about "Black on White", "Latino on White", Muslim on White", "Obama is a Muslim Nigger Commie Socialist" theme, I just want to vomit.
|Promoting books and events for profit.|
But after telling you more than once, it's not true, you fucktards turn around and make more narratives that totally distract the real reason why this country is so fucked up! Sometimes, I almost wish there was a disease that only affects people like you and it's non-curable, let alone treatable.
Like every typical conservative, these clowns come onto to other people's pages put all the retarded conspiracies and ridiculous rants about the government on forums and social networks like this.
When people dismiss you clowns, you continue to rant and rant on about how we are "the ones who are blinded by all the media!" No, sir. You need to wake up! No one gives a fuck about your opinion. So why are you acting like a bitch?
Nevermind, I don't care!
Conservatives, you don't even know what I do for a living. But since I write on a blog and share my opinion, I'm on the "gubmint" assistance or taking from "da man!"
It's always these ridiculous conclusions and reactionary responses. It's their way to piss people off.
When people are saying you're misinformed about issues. I tell them that calling me misinformed is like calling you a genius, none of it is true!
And as for these ridiculous entitlement complaints. It's purely stereotyping.
|Say a lot of ignorant shit on radio or TV.|
When you see Blacks, Hispanics/Latinos, or even Muslims with firearms, you people scream at the top of your lungs about how it's our faults for most of America's crime and you want control over us, but never control over you!
Conservatives: Rap music is entertainment, not a violent crime.
Don't blame Hollywood, Broadway or the video games. Blame the parents. Don't compare apples to walnuts. If a violent event happens and they happen to be inspired by some asshole on conservative talk radio, then you guys hate it when there's a finger your face.
Most Whites often imitate cultures of others in order to claim it as their own! Most white people usually get opportunities to take vacations, while minorities work even harder to at least achieve the American dream.
Conservatives have a high occupancy of hypocrisy when it comes to society. You may see a conservative molests children and spread "Christianity" in the guise of marketing capitalism. Spread ignorance and fear of economic societies that use communism, and socialism in their governments.
Conservatives you better understand history. Whites for decades were raping and pillaging land from the lower nations and destroying the very ecostructure of the world in favor for your piece of the pie! It's no wonder these Asian, Middle East and African nations are practicing in laws based on religion.
You let one of your kind go overseas and rape a child or a woman! It's matter of your worthless life or their justifiable death.
Since conservative are focused on crime statistics and economic standings, let me clear the record.
|Paint people or places in a view that puts "us against them".|
I am assuming that you're one of these callers who phone in talk radio agitators every once in awhile just to either support their crap or piss them off with claims about President Obama, the Democratic or the Republican leadership. A bunch of retarded arm chair generals with a sole mission to complain, jump up and down, get on forums, comments sections and blame the media.
The U.S. Congress job approval is hovering at 8%, Republicans are causing gridlock and you sit on your computer typing up bullshit about "Obama and the Democrats doin' nuffins!" President Obama and the Democratic Party done far more things for the American people. Where were the Republicans on important issues like the economy for the last umpteen years they've had control of the Congress, White House and state/territorial governorships.
|Say things you dare never say to the person you're attacking!|
If a Republican wins, we'll see more war, destruction of the middle class, racial codes, and objectives to tear up progress.
Why should I keep this going?
I have the right to ignore or deny a person an opportunity to respond to me. That's the power of blogs. You can control what you want to read. I don't have to debate a brainless asshole on the internet.
Conservatives look upon the world in "Black and White". In the mind of a conservative, change is bad!
Hispanics are the fastest growing population. Over 50 million more are Hispanics. 34 million more Blacks and 15 million more Asians. This is a population boom. And that's going to be a lot more overwhelming after 2020.
|Rant and rave for ratings.|
Conservatism is an example of the extremism in America.
You claim that people like me are looking for handouts! No one is looking for handouts here!
Conservatives are just looking for someone to bitch at! I consider that a handout in my opinion.
Conservatives so driven mad with their hate of President Barack Obama. They're driving themselves to heart attacks, ulcers and serious brain damage!
Conservatives (likely White conservative men) can't stand a Black man in power.
In order to feel better about their hate, they'll listen to assholes like in the Tea Party Movement, those annoying ass conservative agitators. They make millions off the gullible audience. You fools are making a bunch of nobodies rich.
|Ignorance elects Republicans like Michele Bachmann, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul. And ignorance keeps these politicos elected for years. Doing what they do best, scream and whine. Do what's best for the cameras and not for the constituents who put their asses in the position.|
Instead of hiding behind the comfort of your computer, why don't you spend your time making at least one effort to change the world. And when you do that, we'll see who acts out when you get a racial slur, disability slur or homophobic slur thrown at you in response to your hard work!
You fools can make multiple accounts to troll the internet, act out on the social networks or racist shitholes of your choosing, but your ass isn't gonna do shit!
For every offensive comment and derogatory comment towards President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, the Black community and the Latino community, you've created a new group of Democratic voters.
Every response helps Barack Obama win. And maybe it may make Hillary Clinton, the next President of The United States.
Please don't apologize to me or anyone else for being an asshole!
We understand, it's alright!
CONSERVATIVES: GET YOUR LAZY ASSES OFF THE MISINFORMATION PLANTATION!
By the way, for the internet trolls. You choose to respond back with your stupid ass rhetoric, don't worry too much about me! I don't read word vomit from people like you! You're not on my level of intelligence.
I'll just scrub it and move on!
Screw you, your family, your life and whatever else I forgot to mention!
|Former Bush secretary of state Colin Powell disgusted with Republicans continued obstruction.|
Former Bush adviser is really considering his options. He may drop the Republican label and become an independent. Colin Powell, the former Secretary of State under George W. Bush went to CBS to talk about Civil Rights in America. He had an opportunity to talk about the Republican infighting, the George Zimmerman verdict and the 50th Anniversary of The March On Washington.
In 2008 and 2012, the former secretary of state endorsed Barack Obama for president pissing off the racist right. Senator John McCain (R-Arizona) and his allies think that Powell's endorsement of Obama is an example of "Blacks voting solely on race and not issues"! Perennial loser Mitt Romney's camp thought that Powell was already a "Republican In Name Only."
King Hippo slammed the endorsement as an example of "us Black folk" willing to support Obama no matter what he does because "he's protected by his race" and "we Black folk" already assume that the Republicans and their conservative allies are racist anyway.
That Guy Who Throws Shit To The Wall and others of the racist right outlined an alleged affair that Powell had with a Romanian politician. The cyber hacker pushed the alleged affair to the conservative agitators.
Former Vice President Dick Chaney calls Powell a turncoat and refuse to acknowledge him as a friend.
They're currently feuding with one another.
Powell appears on Face The Nation along with civil rights leader and politico Congressman John Lewis (D-Georgia).
Powell has been critical of the divisive voting laws that Republican governors signed on. They've signed on voter identification laws that requires residents to provide state identification to vote. It's a means to undermine "voter fraud".
Again voter fraud makes up less than 5% of the issues facing America right now. What many critics call it is another ploy to undermine the Democratic Party's core supporters Black, Hispanic and young voters.
See you can have a firearm permit as proof of identification. But a college identification isn't valid. If you don't drive and you have no means of obtaining an identification (but your registered to vote), you can't vote.
The United States Justice Department is suing the state of Texas right now for this type of nonsense.
North Carolina is one of the many states that passed intrusive voter's identification laws. It's being challenged by civil right groups. Powell openly criticized the Republican state governor Pat McCrory over this.
Colin Powell warned that Republicans are chasing for a needle in a haystack. He said that the Trayvon Martin situation and these intrusive laws like voter identification are going to be the rally call for Black Americans.
Also as a father, Powell elaborates on the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman situation.
“I think that it will be seen as a questionable judgment on the part of the judicial system down there, but I don’t know if it will have staying power,” Powell said. “These cases come along, and they blaze across the midnight sky and then after a period of time, they’re forgotten.”
Powell also said that President Barack Obama was right to speak about the case, and the experience of African Americans in general, and encouraged more leaders to do so.
“I’d like to see [Obama] be more passionate about race questions, and I think that was an accurate characterization of some of the things that we were exposed to,” Powell said.
Bob Schieffer asks Powell about Syria, Egypt, the president's reaction to the Zimmerman verdict, Chris Lane murder, the Republican infighting, the voter's ID laws and the March On Washington.

|The March On Washington wants participants to Revisit The Dream. The Racist Right considers it another worshiping cult for President Barack Obama.|
The racist right once again proves that even a freedom of expression is too much for them to tolerate.
You have to be a clear cut racist bigot to get all flamed up over a demonstrator waving a mock American flag with the image of President Barack Obama.
At the 50th Anniversary of the March On Washington, many Americans had an opportunity to listen to speakers promote the visionary of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This is suppose to be about progressive change. A rally call to get things done. Promotion of equal rights for all Americans. Not one group! Everyone!
The conservative agitators didn't go. They're on the sidelines bitching about how these people disgrace Old Glory with the image of the president.
The Turd Flipper and her friends are worked up over the flying of the Obama flag.
They consider it "hero worship" and "cult brainwashing".
Yes, let your freedom of speech parade down the social networking shitholes you visit.
Hell we'll throwing you a tissue for all that bitching and crying over it!
Here's some of the racist responses to the flag!
This is your America, people. The racist right once again rise out of the ugly cesspool. The freedom of speech and expression is only good when they're protesting the president. Of course with pictures of the president looking like Hitler or with a bone in his nose is not offensive! But his image on a mock flag is!
|South Carolina family was denied food service at Wild Wings Cafe.|
In North Charleston, South Carolina, a Black family who wanted to eat at an establishment in the area was denied service after a customer complained. They claimed that the family waited hours before they were told that they weren't getting served.
One of the family members took to the social network and the situation blew up and the restaurant is getting some negative press coverage.
Michael Brown and 24 of his family members go to the Wild Wing Cafe. They were celebrating a family member leaving for better opportunities. This experience wasn't memorable to say at least.
The family waited for two hours for a table only to be told by a manager that there was “a situation.”
Apparently a White customer felt that the family was "threatening" and they didn't want them at the establishment.
“She said there’s a situation where one of our customers feels threatened by your party, so she asked us not to seat you in our section, which totally alarmed all of us because we’re sitting there peaceably for two hours,” Brown told to WNEW Channel 5.
A member of the party began to film the discussion between Brown and the restaurant manager with a camera phone.
“I asked her I want to be clear with you,” Brown recounted. “I said so you’re telling me I have to leave. She said I have a right to deny you service. I said so you’re asking me to leave because you’re upset because he was recording you, after we've waited for two hours, and after you've already pretty much discriminated on us, and she answered yes.”
So Michael Brown decides to make it clear that he's not satisfied with the service. He takes his concerns to Facebook.
I will never go to Wild wings cafe in N. Chs again! We (Party of 25 family and friends) waited 2hrs, patiently and were refused service because another customer (White) felt threatened by us. This type of racial discrimination is unacceptable and we have to put a STOP TO IT. The manager looked me dead in the face and said she was refusing us service because she had a right to and simply she felt like it. DO NOT SUPPORT THIS ESTABLISHMENT… PLEASE SHARE THIS POST… We need your help.
Wild Wing Cafe is a restaurant chain in the south and southeastern United States with over 30 locations in seven U.S. states. It is headquartered in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, a suburb of Charleston. One of their higher ups got the word and responded to the controversy.
“We got alerted through social media, so we always encourage our customers to respond to us or to comment on our social media pages,” Debra Stokes, chief marketing officer for Wild Wing Cafe, told Channel 5.
“We had a conversation,” says Stokes. “It was a really good conversation. He and many of his family and friends were there about a month ago, and they are regular customers of ours. So, they were having a going away party, and they just didn't receive the experience that they have come to know and love.”
“We had a conversation,” said the restaurant’s chief marketing officer. “It was a really good conversation. He and many of his family and friends were there about a month ago, and they are regular customers of ours. So, they were having a going away party, and they just didn’t receive the experience that they have come to know and love.”
Brown was offered a free meal, which he was not satisfied with. “We weren’t there for a free meal,” he said.
"We were there as patrons of their restaurant!", he added. "Do they think that just giving [free food] makes the situation any better?"
Okay, so what do you think about this controversy?

|Can we achieve the dream?|
August 28, 1963 was the movement of progressive change. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. managed to pull hundreds of thousands of individuals from the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument to deliver a speech to demand equal rights.
The celebration of 50 years will commerce on Washington today with the Rev. Perm (Al Sharpton) and Martin Luther King III. They're promoting the March On Washington in regards to issues that made the news.
The leaders say their agenda revolves around five areas: Economic parity, equity in education, voting rights, health care access and criminal justice.
Of course, priority one is the Supreme Court's striking down a portion of the Voter's Right Act. That's one of the main issues that has the Civil Right leaders upset. Then comes the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. Yeah, a lot of Black people are upset that a reckless man walked free when he shot an unarmed teenager. We also have the controversial NYPD stop and frisk tactics. The federal court rejected the policy and the New York mayor Michael Bloomberg tells the media, full steam ahead. And of course, the Chris Lane murder. The racist right have made noise about the Oklahoma tragedy. A man from Australia was killed by two Black teens and the racist right has claimed that the Civil Rights leaders don't care about crimes against White people. This will be a topic at the event.
In 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr., standing in front of the Lincoln Memorial, delivered his historic "I Have a Dream" speech advocating racial harmony during the march.
Estimates of the number of participants varied from 200,000 to 300,000.
It's not determined on how many will show up for this event. But if people are hoping for progressive change, it's going to be a large crowd. Hopefully a large crowd can bring forth a voice of reason and voice of change.
The president's agenda has been squandered by the racist right. The Republicans and their allies in the conservative movement have maintained this notion that if the president fails, the country wins or perhaps they win.
They've lost. They're losing badly in the shifting demographics. They can't rally the old bigots anymore.
They're dying off. And now what's left is trying to convince their offspring that it's possible to save what's left of the "good ol' days".
The mission statement:
August 28, 2013 citizens from across this country will converge upon our nation’s capital to commemorate and celebrate the historic March On Washington which occurred 50 years ago on August 28, 1963.This site provides information and updates on the numerous commemorative marches that are being planned throughout this country. In addition, this site provides citizens an opportunity to leave their remembrances and pictures of the march that changed the world.
