@tru and callme.

Somebody actually interviewed (one of the black state ppl) said that these traffic stops are a way of keeping blacks from those types of jobs.  I wish I could find the clip.

When we talk about what we can do AFTER the ferguson situation, even now actually, joining local voting efforts for our communities is of extreme importance.

I think the lack of voting by AAs is truly cultural. No one in my family votes aside from the presidential election. But now my state has an awful governor and we all complain about him.

Dialogue about how we can change that for our people on a national level needs to be continually addressed. IA it would make a world of difference.


I agree.  With the bolded, have you tried encouraging your family members to vote?  Since they hate the governor, do you think that could be motivation to get them out to vote at the next election?  I agree with your other post as well.  Personally, I could start with myself and my family members to encourage them to vote at local elections.


No I haven't but I'm seriously going to change that. Joining local voting initiatives is my first step.

I think a lot of my family members feel like it's pointless. I see that defeatist attitude a lot with our people though.
My family votes in the little local elections beause of the small town they're located in (everyone knows/related to everyone). I could do a lot more where I live currently though. I need to look into the local NC elections because this year you need a photo ID card to vote (fcuk you rethugs).

Good luck Ragin!!Star

Absolutely. It has all been by design. Michelle Alexander pointed it out in her book The New Jim Cro

CNN Anchor Suggests Using Water Cannons On Ferguson Protestors

Her co-anchor Errol Barnett’s side-eye is subtle, but piercing.
&amp;quot;Wait, what....?&amp;quot;



&quot;Is this real life?&quot;

So now the police raided a black church accusing them of violating "housing" restrictions.  They suspected them of allowing protesters to spend the night. 

Fckn assholes.

A church ?^^^ Eric needs to stop the police . Bring in another agency to monitor the crowds .

(CNN) -- In a single column, a veteran police officer has catapulted himself into the national debate over the death of unarmed teen Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

"I'm a cop. If you don't want to get hurt, don't challenge me," the Washington Post headline blares. The piece was written by Sunil Dutta, a 17-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department.

"Even though it might sound harsh and impolitic, here is the bottom line: if you don't want to get shot, tased, pepper-sprayed, struck with a baton or thrown to the ground, just do what I tell you," he wrote.

Dutta cautions against arguing, insulting, or screaming at officers, "and don't even think of aggressively walking towards me. Most field stops are complete in minutes. How difficult is it to cooperate for that long?"

More clashes between police, protesters
   
If you believe an officer is violating your rights or bullying you, Dutta says, don't challenge him then -- save that for lodging a complaint later. "Do what the officer tells you to and it will end safely for both of you."

It took no time for the anger over his message to explode.

"The outrageous thing is not that he says it. The outrageous thing is that we accept it," writes Ken White of the blog Popehat, which tracks American legal issues.

"Do we have a justice system? By name, yes. Is it effective in deterring cops from abusing citizens or punishing them when they do? No... If you hope the cop will be charged criminally for misbehavior, you're going to be waiting a very long time for no result."

Dutta's message is to "shut up and take it, because even the slightest bit of intransigence is grounds for the cops to unleash a world of hurt," writes Benjamin Freed of the Washingtonian.

"To say that putting up a verbal argument warrants bringing out the billy clubs, stun guns, or actual guns only stokes what's been seen coming out of Ferguson in the past week -- images of peaceful demonstrators being met with a lines of officers rigged with military-grade equipment, marchers being fogged with canisters of tear gas, and people being slugged with rubber bullets after not moving quickly enough," Freed complains.
