I was born and brought up in the Persian Gulf, Arabs are among the most racist people around. I've had Palestinian neighbours calling us blackies and trying to get us kicked off the soccer field. This article is a joke. Palestinians couldn't even stand the Gulf Arabs because they thought they were smarter and better looking. This article is a joke and a blatant attempt to ride on the BLM movement
Ah, the truth hurts, doesn't it? Liberals are the biggest racists in the world.
AGAIN---thank you for your open racist remarks! It is so refreshing to see a right wing nut actually SAY what he believes!
If the black activists merged with the Arab Palestinians, I suspect it would lower the intelligence of both groups.
Yawn ... your rambling baloney put me to sleep ... I can hardly wait until the new REPUBLICAN Congress gets underway and can push back against the anti-American liberal/socialist machine that hates the country so much. I suggest an evening flight to France, where you will be much happier and you can be with your leftist people.
Fire lying, gun-toting badge-wearing cowards who comport themselves as criminals and behave like they're in a war. Screening & training cops to properly speak to people, not escalate situations to altercations as an excuse to murder people. Yes, the justice department should dismantle this entire police dept. especially if you have cops wearing buttons stating their Darren Wilson, they definitely should be re-evaluated as to understanding the role of police. They fail to comprehend the differentiation between upholding the law vs suppressing and targeting people to do it.
Look in the mirror to see an a stupid creep fixated upon pants and the violence of criminal. but chooses to ignore the reasons / injustice of shooting of an unarmed young man:
* Cops aiming loaded automatic weapons at unarmed protesters. Lousy training and violent cop altercations caught on video. Arresting journalists for reporting cop criminal behavior. Looked just like the Arab Spring, Tiananmen Square and any other oppressive regimen proliferating egregious police brutality.
* Wilson lying about being assaulted but photographs of his face display NO INJURIES. Police report: stating Mike Brown hit him 10X, grand jury testimony: 2X, yet the Prosecutor chose to ignore the contradiction and other lies.
* it took 3 months for Wilson, the cops & McCullough assist in crafting this racist fable inculcating some facts but glaringly inconsistent w/others (http://bit.ly/1vyJ4Ab) those are the facts
*This 6'4" coward was too lazy to get out of the cruiser, and by procedure approach Mike Brown. Instead he chose to reach for him through the window as Michael Brown was walking away. Wilson got angry, tried pulling Michel Brown through the window, and through the struggle Wilson drew his gun to shoot him. Wilson was the aggressor and predator, w/the gun at every moment. No defense, just murder.
Wilson's incompetence instigated the entire situation. He didn't feel the need to treat Mike Brown like a human being and he didn't. Didn't regret killing him, stated that himself. Described him as hulking, a demon while infantilizing himself despite being of similar size. Even soldiers w/some sense of humanity and conscience, convey some remorse for taking another human being's life, not Wilson. Instead, he relied upon hate-filled idiots like you who can be spoon fed any lie contradicting the facts, decency and common sense.
As for burning down the businesses, that wasn't the protesters but criminals. In fact, individuals from the community, including some Crips / Bloods, stood at the door ways of some businesses and prevented their destruction with confrontation. Ironic, the cops couldn't be bothered ...although news crews captured these acts/ aware of their location but not a cop in sight, nor the National Guard. Neither could be bothered, too busy tear gassing protesters.
Now, that's really selective incompetence, failure by law enforcement and raw facts.
Oh, if you're unarmed child
M. Brown was 18, hardly a child, but a legal adult. Had he got the officer's gun, he would thus be so armed and not unarmed. Of course, had he shot and killed a white person, you would hold nothing against him and present him with the NAACP Person of the Year Award. Pants Up, Don't Loot.You hatred for human life, other than black or brown, knows no bounds. White Lives Matter, too. So do yellow lives, too. Last point: What would an Asian do? Heck, they have to sue the Ivy Leagues because they're so successful, they can't get in! Oh, yeah, they had a few set backs, too. So did my forefathers, the Jews. You may have heard of the Jews. But hard work and dedication overcame barriers. Try it instead of playing the victim card your liberal masters deal you.
So by your logic, black people who are targeted by cops, regardless of the jurisdiction, should turn to law enforcement, who blatantly & w/out remorse victimize their populations as a source of justice? Since you delved into statistics, you're omitting sanguine facts supporting a rational fear of cops by folks of color: young black males are 21X (http://bit.ly/1vwdDb0) more likely to be killed than their white counterparts. Per 2012, two black people were killed by cops/ wk (http://bit.ly/1vwdPqC). One part lost in the entire discussion, is the manner in which black/brown lives are taken by cops for no reason (http://bit.ly/1vysu3m), i.e supposed gun suicides after a pat down while people are handcuffed, cops shooting unarmed people (http://bit.ly/1vysu3m)....
Adding insult, many town/city tax bases that pay cop salaries is buoyed upon targeting black & poor folks for traffic stops (http://bit.ly/1vwe5G9). Given the proportion of the general population, cops disproportionately kill black/brown people, that's a fact.
Black people do protest the motivations of violence: poverty, joblessness, discrimination but conservative pundits are dismissive of these protests and disparage it as whining, complaining. Characterizing, dehumanizing poor, people of color fits better into a more traditional American narrative of rationalizing suppression than pointing to economic/social inequities based upon skin color.
Now as to your stats: Known fact, most homicides are intra-racial unlike the folk lore bigots & racists perpetuate to inflame fear of black-black crime and rational for cops murdering people of color. Yet, no one brings up instance (http://bit.ly/1vyqNTA) of 84% white murderers murder white people, that translates into 16 % of their victims are non-white compared to 7% differential among black murderers.....
The callousness and lying by the Ferguson cops, I doubt these investigations were competent or thorough.
Oh, if you're unarmed child described as a demon and dehumanized were shot by a cop you'd be frustrated ??? Words couldn't describe your grief. Unless you're black or brown, you're most likely not going to be brutalized, then shot by a lying cop. Fearing / apprehension of criminals is appropriate, but for black, brown, poor people that criminal category or as you characterize blacks 'gangsters' expands to including cops shooting you for no reason.
Arab-Black solidarity is a myth. Until the Arab community will condemn and dismantle Arab/Islamic racism, enslavement, torture and organ harvesting of Black Africans it will continue to be a myth. Mr. Sankari is furthering a decades long tradition of Arab appropriation of the Black struggle for justice. It is beyond shameless, and informed people see the rank hypocrisy for what it is.
"Drawing on FBI figures and his own research, University of Missouri–St. Louis criminologist David A. Klinger counts 1,265 murders in his city from 2003 through 2012. Approximately 90 percent of those killed were black, reports Klinger, a former LAPD officer. Among these 1,138 decedents, roughly 90 percent (1,025) were slain by other blacks. Klinger found 32 blacks killed by cops, with 22 of them shot dead by white officers. So, across 10 years, white cops killed a whopping 2 percent of St. Louis’s black homicide victims. Investigations indicated that all of these police killings were legally justified.“While I understand the people are concerned about the use of deadly force by the police, by far — about 50 to 1 — more blacks in St. Louis are killed by other blacks as compared to white police officers,” Klinger told KMOX-TV.Meanwhile, 98 percent of black murders go virtually unremarked. Where are the angry crowds demanding justice for blacks such as these, who were wiped out in St. Louis by other blacks in recent memory?... The danger to a black child in America is not a white police officer. That’s going to happen less than 1 percent of the time. The danger to a black child . . . is another black. . . . If my child were shot by a police officer, I would be very, very frustrated. I’d also be frustrated if my son were shot by a gangster in the street. But if the chances were — that my son would be shot by the gangster in the street — nine times out of ten, I’d spend an awful lot of time on the nine times out of ten."

Then get rid of the police, idiot! What's your problem? They're paid by taxes, right? Fire them all. tell them to get lost and move on, stupid creep. (Since we're calling each other names — how much fun!) In any case, no one has the right to be murdered by an officer, but no one has the right to kill a police officer, either. In your case, you believe that people have the right to wrestle for a gun and shoot an officer. Weird. Pull up your pants and don't loot. I still can't figure out how burning down a struggling black woman's bakery will help "the cause," but you're more interested in your fiction than the truth.
Idiot, that's the point of the protests and anger people have a right to have normal lives w/out being murdered by cops. Figures a callous ass like you equates whining for people revolting against their own brutalization/potential murder.
This continent legitimately belongs to few of us, and it's highly likely you're native American. So if you don't like it, get on the next plane back from where your family immigrated.
PS. disenfranchised populations also includes women...misogynist.
Maybe all the "disenfranchised populations" can have their own country where they can all complain together and share their whining and victim stories with each other in a giant pity party. The rest of us will live normal lives and not blame others for what does or doesn't happen in our lives. Sounds reasonable to me!
DROP ALL LABELS AND GIVE SEEK PEACE NOT WAR...B.
In this case, I think you make a very good one about how African Americans & all people interesting in justice can view the Zionist side!
THAT is exactly the point, unfortunately, & I believe you (& the central one all of the 'official'---meaning corporate, media have completely missed). While your comment is certainly well-meant, the real problem is NOT about individuals, but about the institutional nature of racism/oppression in our nation. As long as that overall situation is not being addressed, it is just bouncing from one "individual" crime, "official" murder, of yet another young person of color to another & endless hand-wringing about "why can't we just get alone!"
And, the latter also have their views about Arabs ................. These are times of healing and reconciling. The old ways of dividing and signifying have gotten us no where. We must all rise above the silliness and backward thinking of the old.
[In Ferguson and Beyond, Ties Between Black and Arab Struggles for Justice Are Growing]
Just wait until the latter finds out what Arabs think of and treat "abeeds" like.
It is of almost no comfort to the Brown family, but maybe coalitions, awakenings of commonality across disenfranchised populations can move social and civil justice for all individuals. At least I hope.
