If your are a black male in the USA, you are 21 TIMES more likely to be shot dead by a police officer than if you are a white male.
In the video you will hear many truths. One that stood out for me is the PROOF that has emerged recently, as told by Thom Hartmann, that the Reagan Administration was pumping drugs into black neighborhoods.

Gary Webb was RIGHT! The TARGET of the Reagan Administration was African Americans. In typical Predatory Crapitalist fashion, Reagan and his war profiteering pals wanted to make money off of blacks even as they got them to kill each other for drugs.  >:(

SNIPPET:
Quote
The Nicaraguan Contra civilian leadership chose their base in Miami in the 1980's, where the co caine cowboys were already established and renowned during the 1970's for the violence that is associated with the illegal co caine trade. Southern Air Transport (S.A.T.), a ClA-affiliated freight airline operating out of Miami has been implicated in drug-running, evidence of which comes from many sources. Notably, in Congressional testimony Wanda Palacio, an FBI informant, has stated that she witnessed drugs being exchanged for guns on an S.A.T. plane in Barranquila, Colombia.

Corroborating this testimony is an Associated Press story of Jan. 21, 1987, which states the October 1986 S.A.T. plane crash in Nicaragua revealed flight logs indicating that the pilot, Wallace Sawyer Jr., had been flying from Barranquila, Colombia to Miami, Florida in early October 1985. Eugene Hasenfus, an Air America veteran and sole survivor of that crash, filed suit against White House National Security Council (NSC) aide Richard Secord and S.A.T. for expenses and damages, claiming S.A.T. and Secord were his employers. Secord in turn contends that Mr. Hasenfus' real employer was Ronald Reagan and the actual chain of command was Reagan-Poindexter-North-Secord.   :o  >:(

Then there were the allegations coming from Costa Rica regarding White House involvement in the drug trade. The Central American country of Costa Rica lies on Nicaragua's Southern border, which made Costa Rica strategically important during the Contra insurgency in Nicaragua. In that time, the Northern region of Costa Rica bordering with Nicaragua was the site of extensive CIA and Contra activity. In the wake of the Iran-Contra affair, White House NSC staff members Lt. Col. Oliver North, John Poindexter, and Richard Secord were banned-for-life from entering Costa Rica in 1989, after the Costa Rican legislature implicated the NSC staff members in guns and drug smuggling. Former Contra leader Eden Pastora has said "I knew that much of what went through (CIA operative John Hull's northern Costa Rica ranch's) airstrips was related to narcotics trafficking" as part of a "Colombia-Costa Rica, Costa Rica-Miami connection." (Co ckburn, p. 177) These White-House NSC members, along with John Hull, were indicted in a Costa Rican court as accessories to murder in the La Penca bombing and assassination attempt on Eden Pastora, which resulted in the death of an American journalist. North, Poindexter and Secord were never extradicted or arraigned in Costa Rica.

Evidence of White House premeditated involvement in drug trafficking is provided by examining the unusual covert action background of key Iran-Contra players, dating back to American involvement in Laos. Air America - the CIA's Thailand-based Vietnam-era airline - was notorious for its participation in heroin trafficking as a part of funding and supporting the CIA's secret war in Laos during the Vietnam war. This profound bit of history has been the focus of much commentary by historians, and has been confirmed by many sources. (Regarding the recent controversial August 1990 comic movie, "Air America", former Air America pilot Jack Smith spoke out on Entertainment Tonight, substantiating the movie's essential truths.)

Since controlling the Laotian opium fields determined who would control Laos, the CIA put all of its support behind their chosen drug lord, Vang Pao, and the amount of opiates that came out of Laos tripled. As it turns out, Richard Secord (CIA Special Operations Group Deputy Wing Commander in Laos), Lt. Col. Oliver North, Richard Armitage, and John Singlaub were all veterans of the secret war in Laos (Co ckburn). The presence of several Laos secret-war veterans who emerged as key NSC players in Iran-Contra exceeds the realm of mere coincidence. In the October 1986 S.A.T. plane crash which yielded Eugene Hasenfus and the U.S. Government embarrassment, an old Air America operations manual was found. (Co ckburn p. 221)

Public record documents that General Manuel Noriega was on the CIA payroll in the early to mid 1970's, as well as the 1980's. An important point mostly ignored in the mainstream press, however, is the Congressional testimony by George Bush's own NSC advisor, Donald Gregg, that George Bush (then Pres. Gerald Ford's CIA Director) met with Noriega and other Panamanian officials sometime in 1976. This meeting with Noriega took place well after Noriega had been implicated in the intelligence community as a drug trafficker in the DEA's June 1975 DeFeo report. Meeting with a foreign official, CIA Director George Bush would have been fully briefed on Noriega's dossier. Later, Jimmy Carter's CIA director, Adm. Stansfield Turner, ended payments to Noriega; however, Noriega's CIA pay checks resumed when Reagan/Bush took office in l980. (1990 PBS Frontline on Noriega)

It is interesting to note at this point that George Bush was the Drug Czar during his tenure as Vice President under Pres. Ronald Reagan. In NSC memos discovered in the-Iran-Contra investigation, it has been revealed that George Bush's NSC advisor Donald Gregg was aware early on of Contra involvement in the drug trade.

Could ex-CIA chief George Bush, at that point Vice President and Drug Czar, be unaware of such goings-on when his reporting subordinate was quite aware of Contra involvement in the drug trade?

And the pattern continues: During the first two years of the Bush presidency, William Bennett, Bush's first Drug Czar, was criticized by members of Congress for his apparent indifference to Federal judicial and legal loopholes which permitted U.S. companies to export unusual volumes of co caine processing chemicals to Latin American countries harboring co caine production laboratories. Mr. Bennett had been an outspoken proponent of escalating the war on drugs, and yet on this important front of anti-drug policy, Mr. Bennett was apparently negligent. (Rolling Stone, "Between the Lines", October - November 1990)

It's doubtful that the concurrence of the Contra war in Nicaragua with the emergence of crack co caine were mere coincidences. It has been long aknowledged that heroin's prominence and availability during the Vietnam war was contributed by the trafficking of opiates in Laos and Southeast Asia. Sadly, covert wars and drug trafficking go hand in hand.

Ex-CIA field officer John Stockwell has commented, "We cannot forget the Senate Kerry Committee findings of co caine smuggling on ClA/Contra aircraft, the DEA reports on the number of prosecutions in which the CIA has intervened to block prosecution of drug smugglers, the note that escaped Lt. Col. Oliver North's shredder that $14 million of drug money had gone to the Contras, or the CIA's 20-odd-year relationship with Manuel Noriega." (Austin American Statesman, op-ed editorial) Nor has this escaped the comment of ex-DEA agent Michael Levine: "God knows how many secret elements are out there working under the guise of the drug war. Oliver North was the latest example. His operation was hip-deep in Contra drug smuggling. He was banned from Costa Rica for his involvement with drug runners. The DEA documented fifty tons of Contra coke that was being routed into the U.S. by a Honduran connection. An agent bought two kilos in Lubbock, Texas, and made the arrest. The CIA comes quickly to the rescue. A closed hearing is held. Case dismissed." (Esquire, March 1991, p 136)

Leslie Co ckburn has documented that since drug trafficking was facilitated via an unhindered CIA-Contra network unencumbered by increased U.S. border interdiction efforts, the effect was "... involvement of the CIA and the related White House covert operations network in drenching America in co caine and other narcotics ..." (Co ckburn, p.187) And since overall co caine use declined in the '80's, it was the cheaper and more-addictive Crack co caine that came into prominence. As the shipments of South American marijuana declined as a result of increased interdiction efforts, cheap co caine came to the fore to replace marijuana as the drug of choice for drug users and drug smugglers alike.

Watch it all. It starts a bit slow but gets quite informative towards the end.  ;D

But just like it happened in Germany, Fascism in the USA did NOT stop with the targeting of a small minority. YOU and I are not quite as much in the fascist police state crosshairs as the blacks, but EVIL is always a growth industry...
If you do nothing to address the murderous brutality against the African Americans, it will be TOO LATE to COMPLAIN when the POLICE STATE reaches YOU!

Dallas Activists File Complaint Against Dallas Police For Systemic Abuse

Organize! Dallas, Law, police brutality, Texas

By Candice Bernd, www.truth-out.org
December 3rd, 2014

Dallas resident Collette Flanagan holds up a photo of her son (at link below), Clinton Allen, who was unarmed when he was shot by Dallas Officer Clark Staller in March 2013, during a public hearing on the impacts of police violence in Dallas, November 7, 2014. (Photo: Candice Bernd)

Dallas Communities Organizing for Change (DCOC), a grassroots, Dallas-based police accountability group, has filed an administrative complaint with the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Civil Rights Division alleging that the Dallas Police Department (DPD) has participated in a pattern and practice of excessive use of force against African-Americans and Hispanics, echoing a national trend. According to the complaint, between July 2002 and July 2013, there were 185 police shootings reported by the DPD, with 58 resulting in a fatality. African-American and Hispanic fatalities accounted for 43, or 74 percent, of all lethal police shootings. Thirty-six of the 185 police shooting victims were unarmed.

ANIMATED Cartoon: Who killed Michael Brown?
It seems that everyone but Darren Wilson is responsible for the death of Michael Brown. It’s Michael Brown’s fault, black-on-black violence is at fault, it’s a culture of disrespect and lawbreaking that’s at fault, take your pick. Perhaps the best spew of logic came from Rudy Giuliani, who essentially said, if you black people didn’t kill yourselves so much we wouldn’t have to send so many white cops down there to kill you as well.

Yes, crime in black communities is bad. Yes, white police officers killing unarmed black people is bad. Are we not capable of holding two thoughts in our collective head at the same time? It sure seems that many people only talk of “black-on-black” crime when they are defending a white police officer.

Now that another tragedy has happened in the blink of an eye and the police officer who choked Eric Garner to death on camera was not indicted (who you gonna’ believe, your lyin’ eyes or the police union?), let’s hope the growing outrage continues to spotlight police brutality and brings an end to these all-too-frequent killings. Be sure to like, comment and share this cartoon far and wide, or check out links behind the cartoon on my site.

Now that the Missouri non-prosecutor has issued a sweeping non-indictment of Darren Wilson, we can finally find Michael Brown’s real killer!

Who Killed Michael Brown?  It’s a real whodunit!

Was it the black-on-black crime in his neighborhood that forced Brown to tackle a police officer’s bullet with his head?

No?  Well it must’ve been the Cigarillos that pushed him into a competent and level-headed police officer’s line of fire.

And if not the Cigarillos, it must’ve been his sheer size that killed him!

Weighing in at six-foot-four, two-hundred and ninety-two pounds, Brown terrified Officer Wilson, who was only six-foot-four, two-hundred and ten pounds, (plus the additional weight of the club, gun and police vehicle.)

Was the real killer . . . Hulk Hogan?

Had Officer Wilson not been so scared of the wrestling superstar, he would not have confused an unarmed teen with a world heavyweight wrestling champ in tights and a boa.

The real killer was most surely . . . a culture of violent rap music, broken homes, sagging pants, marijuana socks, social media, divorce, demonic weight gain, disrespect, hip hop, happy meals, Obama and, sunspots.

And thanks to the innocent bystander with the gun, we have plenty of leads into Who Killed Michael Brown!

It’s a real whodunit!   ;)

"Seeing Ferguson Clearly: 12 Double Standards That Expose White Supremacy" -- The doublethink of domination and victimhood is central to the pathology of white supremacy in the U.S. It is used to dupe and confuse us into believing that there is nuance in brutality and justice in murder.  >:(

SNIPPET 1:

Quote
“Black people are feared, and lies are told about our propensity for violence, that we want to burn everything down, we want to tear everything up, we want to shoot everybody but we don’t do it. But historically, who are the ones that do it? Groups like the Klan, groups like the Oath Keepers.”



SNIPPET 2:


Quote
The word “Ferguson” has become synonymous with racism and police brutality in the U.S. today, in the same way that the name “Rodney King” did in 1992.

And yet there remains a persistent and reactionary response from some white Americans who vehemently view themselves as the victims and black Americans as “violent thugs” who deserve the treatment they receive from police and the criminal justice system.

The doublethink of domination and victimhood is central to the pathology of white supremacy in the U.S. It is used to dupe and confuse us into believing that there is nuance in brutality and justice in murder.

But what we really need is to see things in black and white. Literally. 

Here are 12 double standards that prove white supremacy is alive and well and hard at work in Ferguson:


It's a three page, must read article ESPECIALLY if you have ANY doubts about how it REALLY works in our racist, police state country and have a SHRED of decency and honesty left in you:

Agelbert Observation in regard to Libertarian hypocrisy:

The racist motive is the only explanation for why some libertarians suddenly start defending the state, big-time, in cases where black guys get killed by police, when in almost all other contexts they are quite suspicious of state power.

Louisiana Plantation Opens as the First Museum Dedicated to the History of American Slavery

by Crystal Shepeard
December 12, 2014
2:30 pm

Martha was one of 16 children. She didn’t grow up with her siblings. Her mother was a slave whose children, fathered by 15 different men, were sold away, including Martha. She is one of thousands of slave children to be memorialized at the Whitney Plantation Museum in Louisiana.

The Whitney Plantation’s history began in 1752 when the land located 35 miles outside of New Orleans, Louisiana was purchased by a German immigrant. Ambroise Heidel made his fortune by turning the property into an indigo plantation. His youngest son, who had changed the spelling of the family name, would switch the Habitation Haydel plantation cash crop to sugar in the early 1800s. It would remain in the family until the late 1800s, when the property was sold after the Civil War. It would later be renamed to the Whitney Plantation, after the new wealthy owner’s youngest grandson.

This week, the Whitney Plantation opened its doors as the first museum dedicated to the history of the slavery in America.

The numerous plantations in Louisiana and across the south are a reminder of a dark time. Many have been restored and also been turned into museums. The history told focuses on the white owners that were part of the economic fabric of the region. The architecture of the buildings represents the influence of the countries they came from, modified to a uniquely American experience. What is missing in all of these stories is one important element: None of it would have happened without the free labor of black slaves that built those houses and worked the lands.

John Cummings is determined not to make the same mistake.

A retired lawyer and wealthy real estate owner, the Whitney Plantation is one of Cummings’ 9,000 acres of real estate holdings in the New Orleans area. His purchase of the antebellum property was personal, wanting to preserve an important part of Louisiana history. It was due to be razed by a petrochemical company when he purchased it from them in 1998. The main house is an architectural gem, a testament to the region’s history. Cummings, however, has no intention of making the house the center of the museum.

He wants everyone to remember who built that house.

The Haydel family was one of the largest slaveholders in the region. On a household inventory from 1860, they noted 101 slaves, listed by name, gender and country of origin. Their ages, skills and even their skin tone were detailed on the report, which also noted two runaways that were presumed hiding. For the past 15 years, Cummings has spent $7 million of his own money trying to recreate the world those slaves lived in and, most importantly, who they were.

The plantation is considered the most complete in the south. In addition to the Greek and Spanish Creole styled house, the property has the overseer’s house, a blacksmith’s shop, as well as the oldest kitchen in Louisiana – all of which has been restored. The murals, believed to be painted by Italian artist Domenico Canova, also remain. Still, Cummings had to take some latitude to achieve his mission. He has purchased mahogany furniture, silver and other items from auction houses to recreate the style of the original owners.

However, it’s not the owners Cummings wishes to memorialize.


Cummings admits that he, as a wealthy white man, may be looked at suspiciously for trying to create this monument. However, he insists that his intentions are sincere. He relied heavily on the expertise of Ibrahima Seck, who is the academic director of the Whitney Plantation Museum. His book, “Bouki Fait Gombo: A History of the Slave Community of Habitation Haydel (Whitney Plantation) Louisiana, 1750-1860,” details the history of the slaves of the plantation. Originally from Senegal, he documents the routes of the slaves from the countries of origin, as well as many of the culinary and musical traditions that were part of how they coped with the brutal life of the plantation slaves.

Cummings has purchased original slave houses from other properties, as well as a shingled church used by the slaves. Visitors can see a steel jail from 1868 used to hold slaves, as well as 9 ½ feet wide sugar kettles, and rusted metal crosses that are used as grave markers on the property. After a brief tour of the main house, visitors are met with the sound of large antique bells ringing, reminding them of who they are there to remember.

It promises to be emotional and even uncomfortable.
 
One memorial was done by Ohio artist Woodrow Nash. Sixty-three ceramic heads of slaves killed rest on rods near a lagoon. The German Coast uprising happened on January 8-10, 1811 in what is now St. John and St. Charles parishes in Louisiana. It was the largest uprising in American history, in which 66 slaves died and another 33 were executed, escaped, or presumed dead.

Visitors are constantly reminded of the harsh world of the slaves as they walk through the hot and humid grounds, complete with the sounds of freight trains rumbling in the distance. Transcribed oral histories are etched on the walls, just some of the 4,000 stories of Louisiana slaves the staff has obtained. Some of these stories have been recorded and are played throughout the tour.

The Field of Fallen Angels is in an incongruously quiet courtyard that contains a centerpiece of a bronze angel breastfeeding a baby. The angel, bare breasted and surrounded by rusty chains, sits in the center of a memorial with 2,200 hundred names etched in stone. They are the slave babies born in St. John Parish that died before their third birthday. The slave children are a central theme throughout the plantation, with scores of life-sized ceramic sculptures of children sitting on the steps of the slave quarters, standing in fields, or sitting in the pews at church.

One of those children is Martha.

When recounting her story, Cummings notes how clergy    at the time justified slavery through scripture.  They said that their purpose here on earth was to be good slaves to their masters. In return, God would reward them by reuniting their families in the afterlife. He pauses as he remembers Martha’s mother dying brokenhearted at the loss of her 16 children.     >:(
“I just hope those pastors kept their promises,” he says.

Agelbert note: Slavery is NOT over in the USA. It's good to remember the history but it's also important to recognize that slavery in the world AND the USA HAS NOT gone away. It just has better PR.  :(


Cheap, Disposable People
•An average slave in the American South in 1850 cost the equivalent of $40,000 in today’s money; today a slave costs an average of $90.

•In 1850 it was difficult to capture a slave and then transport them to the US. Today, millions of economically and socially vulnerable people around the world are potential slaves.

This “supply” makes slaves today cheaper than they have ever been. Since they are so cheap, slaves are today are not considered a major investment worth maintaining. If slaves get sick, are injured, outlive their usefulness, or become troublesome to the slaveholder, they are dumped or killed. For most slave holders, actually legally ‘owning’ the slave is an inconvenience since they already exert total control over the individuals labor and profits. Who needs a legal document that could at some point be used against the slave holder?

Today the slave holder cares more about these high profits than whether the holder and slave are of different ethnic backgrounds; in New Slavery, profit trumps skin color. Finally, new slavery is directly connected to the global economy. As in the past, most slaves are forced to work in agriculture, mining, and prostitution. From these sectors, their exploited labor flows into the global economy, and into our lives.

In addition, there may be people held in slavery in your community. Slavery happens in nearly every country in the world, and the US and Europe are not immune. Research that Free the Slaves conducted with the University of California, Berkeley found documented cases of slavery and human trafficking in more than 90 cities across the United States.

Why is there slavery in the United States?

Trafficking victims are often tricked into slavery through promises of work. Human traffickers
tend to prey on impoverished people who live in countries with little access to education,
health care or jobs. When traffickers disguise themselves as legitimate recruiters or
employment brokers and promise paying work, many people are willing to sign on.

Parents desperately want to work so they can feed their hungry families. Young people want
to work so they can pay for their schooling or that of their younger brothers and sisters.

They are tricked into believing they will be paid for their work.

The basic rule of this global traffic in slaves is that victims flow from poorer countries to
richer countries. While it is true that most slaves in the US are trafficked in from other
countries, US citizens are also forced into slavery around the country. A recent study found
the citizens of more than 35 countries enslaved in the US, with the greatest numbers
coming from China, Mexico, and Viet Nam.

Why we can't educate racism away

At its root, racism is a structural problem

By Ryan Cooper

http://theweek.com/article/index/274049/why-we-cant-educate-racism-away

Agelbert NOTE: The article points at the solution.

What it fails to point out is that every single time ACTUAL solutions like these are brought up, those very same people pretending to be NON-racist scream and holler that "affirmative" action is "reverse prejudice".

IOW, the privileged whites, regardless of their pretense of being "color blind", are, in fact, QUITE MILITANT about making sure their privileged status is not altered one bit!  :(

So it goes.

Quote
Dear Mr. President, While I have to admit that no single one of the recent incidents of police using deadly force against minorities could be cited in and of itself as wrongful, the recent rash of such incidents shows there is still a predisposition by police to use more force against African-Americans and Latino Americans than they use against White Americans.

I have read accounts of Whites engaging in criminal mischief without being met with force, or in some cases without their even being arrested, while when minorities engage in similar behavior they are subjected to harsh enforcement. Profiling has no place in this century.

Thomas E. Locke

PETITION: Invite the Brown and Garner families to the State of the Union Address!


I wrote to Nathan Empsall, the originator of the Petition:


Thank you Nathan,  for this noble effort.  With efforts like these, REAL, not cosmetic, structural reforms can be put in place to stop this brutality and provide justice and equal opportunity for people of color on a par with the people of privilege.

Our society is upside down. Empathy gets almost no press and Empire almost all of it. That is exactly backwards from the way it should be in an intelligent society concerned with the welfare of present and future generations.

Nathan, You give me hope for the future because you are truly a person of GOOD WILL! God bless you and your family.
