The argument supporters of George Zimmerman attempt to make is that he is not a racist and the case against him was not a clear case of murder. But, another Zimmerman-like fellow didn’t get to walk because a video left NO DOUBT.
We wish there would’ve been video surveillance for Trayvon that tragic evening, but John Henry Spooner, 76, was caught on video and the jury had no other choice but to find him guilty of first degree murder. There was no shadow of a doubt in this case and the video is one of the most disturbing and tragic set of events you will ever see as you become witness to the senseless death of 13-year-old Darius Simmons.

For some reason, losers like Rush Limbaugh and others watched Rachel Jeantel’s interview with Piers Morgan and are pretending they received a real education on the use of the N-word and a license to use it. While she explained HER OPINION on the differing definitions between the N-word with an “a” versus its use with an “er,” somehow, even with her warning on the “er” usage, it still didn’t register that this remains to be a lethal use of the word.
An unidentified white man–who obviously lost his job to a black person–got his wires crossed as he drowned his sorrows in beers at Benny’s Burritos in Manhattan and decided to call a black man an n-word…with the “er” and ended up in one. The black man on the receiving end of the word, Douglas Reddish, as expected, knocked the white man out and was arrested and released on his recognizance, according to the New York Daily News.

During Apartheid in South Africa, African Americans and others were a part of a campaign to divest from the country. Government sanctions were not the only U.S. entity to pull out of a relationship with South Africa, many people, especially African Americans, and students from all types of colleges, via various organizations, stopped supporting those companies with South African interests.
Stevie Wonder has been a crusader for justice for many years for every humanitarian and civil rights effort imaginable. He was a central figure in supporting the holiday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King on his birthday by creating one of the most popular songs in history. But now his focus is on the Trayvon Martin murder and acquittal of George Zimmerman. He now vows that we won’t have to worry about spending another dollar on one of his shows in Florida because there won’t be any. (more…)

The most disgusting racist jokes are surfacing since the George Zimmerman verdict. The racists coming up with this stuff are the very same people who would call Trayvon a suspect when they choose to portray themselves as animals.
Trayvon Martin’s name and reputation has been dragged through the mud by racists supporting George Zimmerman and now they have even taken to making a joke of his murder. Young white men have been seen taking pictures of themselves laying down in the same posture Trayvon was found in the night of his death. For some reason, in their underdeveloped brains, his life and death is a joke. A very sick joke. (more…)

Well that was fast! On Monday, we reported on a horrible mistake committed by the news team at California’s bay area news station KTVU, where the news anchor recited racist pilot names during a live broadcast while reporting on the crash that claimed two lives.
KTVU said they confirmed the pilots’ names, “Sum Ting Wong,” “Wi Tu Lo,” “Ho Lee Fuk” and “Bang Ding Ow” with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and lo and behold their story checks out. The mistake or joke was made by a summer intern at the NTSB, according to the Huffington Post. (more…)

Black women have often been under the microscope and/or the center of attention for their coveted derriere’s. The plumper the butt the more sought after they are for rapper’s music videos and believed to be more prominent in the south as a result of good ol’ southen cooking.
But never have we ever heard of a black woman’s round posterior being associated with some sort of defect of her spine referred to as “Ghetto Booty”! So, it is of no surprise when Terry Ragland, 55, of Jackson, Tennessee, was treated for back pain and diagnosed by her new doctor with this sort of unofficial medical terminology, she was shocked.
Ragland was treated by Dr. Timothy Sweo in April, when he thought that this was suitable or acceptable to convey to Ragland in racist laymen’s terms her medical condition that is really called “lumbar lordosis.” He didn’t think that a woman with “ghetto booty” would understood the terminology and this was the only way to explain it to her.

Asiana flight 214 that crashed at San Francisco International Airport on July 6, is obviously no joking matter, but apparently has become racist fodder for some news outlets.
Two girls were killed and numerous others injured in the crash that was a major headline for newspapers and top stories for networks. But when California’s bay area news station KTVU reported the pilots of the plane as “Sum Ting Wong,” “Wi Tu Lo,” “Ho Lee Fuk” and “Bang Ding Ow”, professionalism along with any remnant of respect for the news channel were obliterated.

With the George Zimmerman trial coming to a close, it’s important that we continue to keep his criminal injustice and cases like his alive in the public arena as well as in the face of our Supreme Court.
Another case brewing in Illinois is a deplorable case of police brutality as it was explained by the victim, a Wiley College honor student Gabriella Calhoun. A night out with friends rapidly became violent when they were eating at a Denny’s where a couple of girls got into a fight outside the restaurant. Once Denny’s called police, they ushered the girls back inside the restaurant to get cleaned up in the bathroom, but the fight ensued inside the restaurant and one of the young men seated at Calhoun’s table was somehow mistaken to be a part of the melee’. The rest is unfathomable. (more…)
