Pondering Thoughts!

Some random thoughts in the wake of the Dallas police shootings. We seen the reactions from both sides of this debate. And one network is there to make the divide even wider.

In the picture, Ieshia Evans, a resident of Baton Rouge got international attention after she stood firm while the Baton Rouge Swat tried to arrest her and the protesters.

President Barack Obama hosted a town hall on ABC, Thursday. The President and the People was a good sit down. The president had to confront the families of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and the lieutenant governor of Texas, Dan Patrick.

The daughter of Eric Garner, Erica was none too happy about the sitdown. She blamed ABC for not giving her an opportunity to ask the president a question. Her father was brutally taken down by the law and died of a heart attack. The cop who performed a choke hold was not indicted and it sparked protests. A terrorist went to New York to buck two NYPD officers in the wake of this.

D.L. Hughley called out the Fox News and CNN in the past for advocating racism. He went on The Kelly File with Megyn Kelly and they got into it.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxson and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) had nothing nice to say about the president's speech in Dallas. They believe that the president and Black Lives Matter were responsible for the acts of that terrorist who ambushed five officers in a sniper attack.

Alton Sterling's son went to the junk food media to denounce the conservative lies about his father being affiliated with gangs. He was very emotional when his mother read a statement to the press about how her husband was brutally murdered by two cops while on the ground.

On Friday he was buried. The family held a large funeral and called upon the state and federal government to pass police reform.

DeRay McKesson, the founder of ProjectZero and spokesman for Black Lives Matter was arrested in Baton Rouge. He was detained for two days after he was cited for walking in the street. Of course, he was to appear on CBS's Face The Nation but was detained at the present time.

Fox News is the panderer of extremism. The network, its reporters, commentators, and its boss Roger Ailes have mastered the art of painting the opposition as the enemy.

#BlackLivesMatter is once again in the network's crosshairs and its working overtime to discredit the group and those who support it.

America's most annoying (and possibly hated) conservative agitator Sean "Softball" Hannity along with fellow agitators Bill O'Reilly, Megyn Kelly, Greta Van Susteren have been on the opposite end of a real issue that's bubbled to the surface.

Black America feels like there's no justice when it comes to law enforcement.
