Terrance Crutcher was a man trying to get home and he didn’t. We heard police officers who were in a helicopter talk about how he looked like a “bad dude”. Why did they say that? He was a bad dude because he was big and black. His physicality is reason enough to classify him as bad. Crutcher is dead and now we are witnessing the demonizing of the victim. Shoot first and create the narrative to justify the killing. We have seen this play out before. Trayvon Martin , Eric Turner, Freddie Gray and now Terrance Crutcher. Sure they were killed but they were “bad dudes” and we have the post-mortem narratives to prove it.

Flint pastor Faith Green Timmons stops Donald Trump from electioneering in her church. Trump politely stops. Good for her.
Words to remember in the voting booth.
Joe Scarborough pens Amnesty Don. Finally a nickname that will stick.
Millionaire quarterback Colin Kaepernick says he will not stand up for the National Anthem until black people are no longer oppressed. One might say he is exercising his rights but do his rights supercede the rights of his employer? The football field is his workplace and the employer controls the space. Kaepernick has a right to his opinion but not on the football field. NBC commentator Rodney Harrison went as far as to question Kaepernick’s blackness. Harrison has since apologized. Donald Trump has said Kaepernick should go to a country that aligns with his viewpoint. The quarterback need not leave the country but he should take his protest off the football field.

Interesting article. Read and share your thoughts.
You go Al Roker. You called a lie a lie not an embellishment. You didn’t “calm down” like Billy Bush suggested. You kept it real and kept it truthful.
Nobody respects the black vote. The Democrats take us for granted and the Republicans ignore us. Well, The Donald polling 1-2% in the black community has articulated a new strategy, and that is the “what the hell do you have to lose: strategy. Not really offering anything new. Not even coming into the community to articulate it. Just standing in front of mostly white crowds he just screams his new words. Is this truly the way he should be talking to black folks? 2016 is a different kind of election. Hillary Clinton is no Barack Obama and black people are not going to come out in those Obama numbers for her. So my advice is they both need to learn not all blacks live in poverty. We are like all Americans…different, and they need to address us that way.
32 year old man vandalizes bathroom and then lies about it to the world. Some call it young men having a good time but others including me call it thug behavior what do you call it? Share your thoughts.
The reaction to Ryan Lochte’s illegal activities can be described in one word-muted. He and his band of swimming brothers went out for a night on the town in Rio. They partied and then they destroyed property. They were detained by the police and then Lochte lied about the details. He came home to the US and his party buddies are left to answer questions. So where is the outrage? Why aren’t we hearing the talking heads vilifying him or demanding an apology? No one has called him a thug. So tell me why aren’t these gold medal winning swimmers being crucified by the press? You don’t have to tell me I know the answer.
