Houston cop acquitted of beating teen with clear video evidence

Remember this ugly disgusting scene of excessive force? The video is right there. Cops beating on a suspect, Chad Holley, after he was down on the ground and surrendered. And somehow this police officer, Andrew Blomberg, was acquitted of beating Mr. Holley, with an all white jury. The video clearly shows at least two out-of-control cops, one kicking repeatably throughout the video, is that Blomberg? And another cop punching away on Holley. Read the whole article via the link below.

Black community leaders in Houston, Texas, are alleging racism after an all-white jury acquitted a white police officer of beating a black teen.

The beating of 15-year-old Chad Holley in 2010 was caught on tape and outraged the black community. Holley, now 18, was fleeing from a burglary, though the video shows him put his hands behind his back as officers surround him and kick him.

Andrew Blomberg, 29, was the first of four police officers to stand trial for their roles in a beating that prompted fierce public criticism of the police department by community activists who called it another example of police brutality against minorities.

...

'It is pathetic. It is unacceptable,' the Rev James Dixon of the Community of Faith Church said of the jury's decision.

'This kind of expression says to me, to my children and to every black child in the city, "Your life is not worth manure."'

Quanell X, the community activist who had released the video of the alleged beating to the media, called the verdict 'wrong' and criticized the lack of blacks or other minorities on the six-person jury.

...

Asked why there weren't any blacks or minorities on the jury, DeGuerin said most of the African-Americans in the jury pool had already made up their minds that Blomberg was guilty.

UCLA faculty surgeon facing racism

A faculty surgeon at UCLA has been dealing with racism. Make sure to watch the video below.

A respected African American faculty surgeon filed a racial discrimination suit against the UCLA Medical Center and UC Regents. Dr. Christian Head has been intentionally degraded based on his race and UCLA officials have ignored blatant acts of racial discrimination, including an edited photo depicting Dr. Head as a gorilla being sodomized by his supervisor. That alone is offensive. But the fact that the photo was publicly presented for laughs during an annual medical school sponsored event attended by more than 200 physicians, faculty, residents and guests is both shocking and indefensible. Hear what Dr. Head has endured and what UCLA officials continue ignore.

White supremacists arrested in Florida

Ten members of a white supremacist group were arrested in Florida who were planning for a "race war." Read the whole article via the link below.

Ten alleged members of a white supremacist group training near Orlando and Disney World for a "race war" have been rounded up in a series of arrests in central Florida, authorities said on Tuesday.

The arrests were based on evidence from a confidential informant who infiltrated the neo-Nazi organization known as the American Front 17 months ago, according to an arrest affidavit.

"The American Front (AF) is a military-styled, anti-Semitic, white supremacist, skinhead organization and is known as a domestic terrorist organization," the affidavit said.

It said the group's alleged local ringleader, Marcus Faella, 39, had been "planning and preparing the AF for what he believes to be an inevitable race war" and had stated "his intent ... to kill Jews, immigrants and other minorities."

Faella operated a heavily fortified paramilitary training center for the AF on his isolated property in St. Cloud, Florida, 11 miles from the Walt Disney World theme parks, according to the affidavit.

It said he recently had been plotting a disturbance at Orlando City Hall and a confrontation against a rival skinhead group in coastal Melbourne in a bid to garner media attention, but had also been experimenting with the potential manufacture of the biological toxin ricin.

"Faella views himself and the other members of the AF as the protectors of the white race," the affidavit said, adding that Faella also believed "the race war will take place within the next few years based on current world events."

...

Besides Faella, those arrested were Christopher Brooks, 27, of Palm Bay; Richard Stockdale, 23, of St. Cloud; Kent McLellan, 22, of St. Cloud; Patricia Faella, 36, of St. Cloud; Jennifer McGowan, 25, of Cocoa; Mark McGowan, 29, of Cocoa; Diane Stevens, 28, of Kissimmee; Paul Jackson, 25, of St. Cloud; and Dustin Perry, 21, of Kissimmee.

In addition to the other charges, Brooks and Stockdale were charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, according to their arrest reports.

A lawyer for Faella and other suspects arrested in the case could not be reached for immediate comment but Marcus and Patricia Faella, who were arrested on Friday, have already been released on a bond totaling $500,000 each.

South African model posts racist tweets

A South African model named Jessica Leandra Dos Santos tweeted a racial slur on Twitter and then tried to defend her tweets and then later apologized on her blog. Apparently this isn't the first time that she has tweeted racial slurs on Twitter either. Read the whole article via the link below.

Jessica Leandra Dos Santos's career as a model and sex kitten could be all but over. The Joburg-born model came under fire for posting a racist tweet on social networking site Twitter. It read: "Just, well took on an arrogant and disrespectful k***** inside Spar. Should have punched him, should have."

After angry responses to her comment, Dos Santos deleted the offending tweet. But it was too late. She has already lost one of her major sponsors and men's magazine FHM has distanced itself from the 20-year-old, saying she would be stripped of her title as FHM model of the year in 2011.

Reacting, Dos Santos posted another tweet: "Would you all stop! These are the kind of people that land up raping young girls in our country. I wasn't going to let him get away with it."

...

And this is not the first time. Earlier this year she tweeted: “Highlight of my weekend? Almost punching an Engen petrol assistant. No tolerance for rude African monkeys whatsoever!”

By yesterday Twitter was abuzz over her remarks. Although her representatives have remained tight-lipped, Dos Santos took to her blog to post an apology. "I tweeted rather irresponsibly about an incident last night (Thursday), using a harsh word about the gentleman who confronted me with sexual remarks and sounds," said Dos Santos. "Many of you don't know the details of the incident. Please do understand that I was acting in pure anger."

Hate spray painted on cars

Someone spray painted "KKK" onto four cars in a neighborhood. Read the whole article via the link below.

Sunday morning, three families woke up to find racist graffiti spray painted on their cars. The culprits struck sometime overnight on Echo Ridge Place near Brandermill.

...

A quiet, typical Sunday morning for the Alexanders was ruined. Bryan was putting his kids in the car for church when a police officer unexpectedly told him to check out the back of his brand new mini-van.

"I couldn't believe that it happened," he recalled.

He took snapshots of the hate. "KKK" was spray painted for the world to see.

"In the five years I've been here, we have not had any crime," Bryan explained. "Even the officer he said this is the first time he can ever remember being called into my subdivision."

Sunday morning, that officer was called to investigate the hate-filled graffiti on four cars at three different houses.

What if racism was an illness?

Some think that racism may be an illness. I'm not believing that racism is an illness but I'm also no doctor. Make sure to read the whole article on ideas.time.com (link below).

Is racism an illness? Psychiatrists and psychologists are debating the issue. The forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Personality Disorders, due for publication in August 2012, will include a chapter on identifying and assessing pathological bias.

...

Thinking of any form of racism as an illness is very troubling. Historically, psychiatrists, psychologists, the medical establishment and lay people have all agreed that the roots of racism are cultural or societal — a set of beliefs and behaviors that are learned and, as a result, can be unlearned. If it were to ever be declared an illness that can be treated, racists would no longer be legally or ethically responsible for their actions. Just imagine it: a medical justification for discriminating against, or even killing, those of another race.

Dr. Carl C. Bell, the coauthor of the Oxford University Press chapter and a member of the APA is, nonetheless, convinced that some forms of racism are a mental illness. He notes that many of his colleagues are “concerned about having the conversation about racism and mental illness because, for them, it is akin to medicalizing a social problem.” He thinks there is some validity to those concerns but believes that while “95–98% of racist behavior is socially, culturally or politically determined, there is still a sliver of racist behavior that may be based on psychopathology.”

NY Post writer says Brooklyn Nets should be called a racial slur

New York Post writer Phil Mushnick apparently has never been a fan of Jay-Z and so today he tried attacking him and a community by using stereotypes and a racial slur. Here is what Phil Mushnick wrote in his column:
As long as the Nets are allowing Jay-Z to call their marketing shots — what a shock that he chose black and white as the new team colors to stress, as the Nets explained, their new “urban” home — why not have him apply the full Jay-Z treatment?

Why the Brooklyn Nets when they can be the New York N------s? The cheerleaders could be the Brooklyn B----hes or Hoes. Team logo? A 9 mm with hollow-tip shell casings strewn beneath. Wanna be Jay-Z hip? Then go all the way!

Huffingtonpost.com posted an update with Phil Mushnick response to the outcry of his column.
Mushnick responded to the furore surrounding his column later on Friday. Writing to sports site Bob's Blitz, he said that there had been "obvious, wishful and ignorant mischaracterizations" of his words.

"Jay-Z profits from the worst and most sustaining self-enslaving stereotypes of black-American culture and I'M the racist?" he continued. "Some truths, I guess, are just hard to read, let alone think about."

Do you think Phil Mushnick will be fired? Obviously he should be fired but will he get fired is the question.
