NOTE:CLIP CONTAINS PROFANITY
Last night Bill Maher and his guest Killer Mike discussed the Baltimore riots and Killer Mike justified the burning of the CVS and the other unrest. He basically said the residents of the community felt no sense of ownership so they weren’t burning their own community because they really felt no sense of community. He also said that the CVS that was burned did not employ people within the community. Keep in mind that Killer Mike is a resident of Atlanta so I don’t know where he gets his facts from but i do know that his arguments don’t justify the fire or the riots. We have a right to protest wrongdoing but we don’t have a right or a justification for illegal activity and we have to say that. Maher and Killer Mike also took some shots at Bill O’Reilly. After listening to the exchange one is led to believe Killer was invited for comic relief.

George Stephanopoulos is in hot water for not disclosing that he has contributed $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation. he is guilty of the sin of omission. So members of the GOP say Stephanopoulos is not fit for the presidential debates but is a donation a disqualifier? If he had made the disclosure on his own would it have made a difference?

We are all a product of our experiences and we often share it with the people in our circle. When you are the First Lady your circle is much bigger. Mrs. Obama is coming under fire from the right for sharing her experiences with racism. She was speaking to a majority black audience who identified with her narrative. She was passionate as she shared her life story, but that passion is being misidentified as anger. This is so familiar to so many of us. too often when a black woman shows passion she is called angry or intimidating, but when her white counterpart reacts the same way she is showing passion and confidence. The Obamas are nearing the end of their tenure in the White House and they are feeling a new sense of freedom. They are now speaking frankly about race the third rail. The movie A Few Good Men had a line I am going to paraphrase some on the right simply can’t handle the truth.

Toya Graham is the toast of the town. She is still being touted as the mother of the year. She is the mother that gave her son a very public beat down and the world is applauding her, but should they? If she did this same act on any other day she would have been arrested. Graham has been on CBS, CNN, NBC and ABC, but a year from now where will she and her son be?
Today, Freddie Gray will be buried. He died from injuries sustained while in custody of the Baltimore Police. Gray had a police record, but over the last few days we have heard him described as a jokester and an all around good guy. Both of these things could be true. You can have a police record and you can also be a good guy around your family and friends. You can also be a victim without being an angel. You might have done all kinds of criminal things or simply unkind things, but if you are killed at the hands of the police you are the victim. We don’t need anyone to try to redesign or refine your real narrative in an effort for the victim to receive justice.
The Baltimore Police are reporting there has been a credible threat made against them. Supposedly some gangs have united to “take out cops.” This threat comes on the day that Freddie Gray is being buried. If this is truth it is a frightening twist in this tragedy. It might be hard to prosecute a policeman when he kills a man it will not be hard to prosecute a gangbanger if he dares to shoot a cop.
Franklin Graham protests University of Maryland cancelling “American Sniper” because Muslim students complained
FRANKLIN GRAHAM’S FACEBOOK POST
Can you believe that the University of Maryland canceled a screening of the movie American Sniper after Muslim students complained? This afternoon, I’m going to meet with wounded military veterans and their spouses who served this nation with honor–fighting to preserve our freedoms and many times shedding their own blood. Chris Kyle was an American hero. It’s brave soldiers like these that make all of the freedoms we enjoy possible. Shame on the University of Maryland for listening to these voices! If these Muslim students can’t support the military members who do their job to protect us, let them leave America and go to a Muslim country. God bless America and our heroes! SHARE this if you agree.
I read the post above and I was struck by the venomous tone. Schools are a melting pot of races and nationalities and schools have to be sensitive to diverse communities. Muslim students complained to officials at the University of Maryland about American Sniper. Graham said if they don’t like it they need to go to a Muslim country. Well if this is where they were born they don’t need to leave their own country. There are movies that some groups applaud and others are offended by that same film and their feelings should be considered and not dismissed, and not told to take a hike.
