“The first thing we need to do is change the public’s perception of this and take away the unfair stigma,” GOP adviser Frank Luntz explained. “We want to come up with a more positive term for ‘molestation’, that word just exudes negativity.

I had the misfortune of watching Faux News yesterday in order to ascertain how the conservatives plan to defend the indefensible: The Killing of Freddie Gray. Many vicious, hateful accusations and talking points were spewed to justify the use of excessive force by police to “subdue” African-American males.

Selma Commemoration

I went to a church service last night on the anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery March at a small AME congregation. Mostly black, mostly middle class farmers. The minister, part time, as he is a farmer too, spoke passionately of the zeal of those protestors who stood up against injustice and of the cause that they lifted up. BUT, he also challenged the congregation to do more than just recall….

A lot of tough questions have to be addressed if we are to have a real conversation about race. And all of us have to face realities without excuses.

      If there were really such a thing as “justice” the bush administration would be in prison, the cop who killed Mike Brown would also be in prison, and Boehner and his bretheren would NOT be in their lofty positions. ISIS would not have a hold on any […]

NYPD Union

Instead of seeing a psychotic cop-killer for what he was, some NYPD officers, their police union and prominent Republicans are exploiting this tragedy to validate the righteousness of their racism.

In the end, no one can maintain their power because of the inverse property of power, every action creates an equal and opposite reaction. And that is our eternal job as the majority of human beings on this planet, to be that equal and opposite reaction to those who accumulate power and use it to gratify themselves at the expense of the lives and well being of others.

President George W Bush visits CIA Headquarters, March 20, 2001.

What we know confidently now is that torture did take place under the Bush Administration by the CIA, that it didn’t work or help keep Americans safe, that it permanently undermined our nation’s moral authority in the world and that there is absolutely no regret or apology from those who oversaw and committed it.
