Hillary Clinton Admits her fear of Black Men in Hoodies…where’s the outrage?

I am currently making final edits on my book so I must admit I missed this Hillary Clinton tidbit. A few days ago she admitted that a lot of well meaning white people fear the black man in a hoodie. So should she be applauded for her honesty? Would this be a non-story if Ted Cruz or Donald Trump made the same remark? Clinton feels she has the black vote on lock and comments should give black folks pause.

Cecil the Lion’s death is sad, but Sam DuBose’s murder is tragic


Yesterday the world was outraged at the death of Cecil the Lion. The dentist who killed the lion has been vilified by the world. His practice has been shutdown and celebrities have been calling for his head. Th world is outraged, but what is wrong with a world that can summon up this kind of outrage for a wild animal and regard the killing of Sam DuBose as a simple news story? SMH

Would they have done this in an ethnically diverse community?

The Politics of Outrage and Outrageous

2016 will be the anything goes election. It’s only 2015 and we are seeing and hearing all sorts of outrageous behavior. We have heard candidates and their surrogates say anything and everything. When questioned about their behavior they either become defiant or some may issue the non-apology apology, but the name of the game is no surrender. You don’t surrender when the people are against you. You don’t surrender when the facts don’t support your premise. You simply don’t surrender. It’s the politics of the outraged. The people are said to be angry with the government, and the candidates feel it is their job to add fuel to the slow burning fuse. There are no statements that are disqualifying. You can question the service of a POW, you use the horrors of the Holocaust as a backdrop to your objections to the Iran deal, one of your surrogates can threaten a reporter who has written a story that the candidate finds objectionable. We have entered the anything goes age of politics. If this is what we have going on over a year away from the election we can only assume it will ge worse.

Why did this traffic stop go so horribly wrong?

Would perfection have saved Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray or Sandra Bland?

Bland “was very combative,” DA Elton Mathis said. “It was not a model traffic stop … and it was not a model person that was stopped.”

By now you know the story of Sandra Bland. She was a 28 year old woman who moved to Texas to start a new job. She was pulled over by the police for a minor traffic violation. She was subsequently manhandled and arrested. The police say she committed suicide while in their custody. Her relatives contest this and a murder investigation is currently going on. I was reading an article about Bland and I was struck by the quote above from the DA. He said she was not a model person. What is a model person? Does model person mean complete compliance? What makes you a model person? Why is there always a need to demonize the victim even prior to all the facts being released? Perfection does not provide protection. Share your thoughts.
