Unlike Hillary, Why is Bernie Struggling with Black Voters? - Madness & Reality

Unlike Hillary, Why is Bernie Struggling with Black Voters? - Madness & Reality | Post-Racial Updates | Scoop.it
We work hard and pay taxes just like everyone else in this country. So, when someone comes along and talks about raising taxes on everyone to be able to pay for free stuff like college and healthcare – when you haven’t had a raise in ten years and you’re over forty-five and barely clinging to the job you do have – maybe, just maybe, we’re not buying into that hype. Yeah, and that whole idea of race relations in America “absolutely” being better under a Sanders administration? Yeah, well, we’re not buying that bullshit as well. Hell, Bernie might as say that we’ll all be white with him as president of the United States, and that’s why things will get better for us.

Terrorism: Your White Privilege Will Protect You - Madness & Reality | Post-Racial Updates | Scoop.it
All this talk about what Sayed Farook and his wife did in San Bernardino and still nothing about the argument he had at the office party. We were told that there was an argument before Sayed Farook decided to leave and return with his wife to wreak havoc on his co-workers. I suppose none of that is of any importance when it’s important to  stir up the fears of the color-aroused political base that supports you.

Young, Black, & Missing: The Disappearance of Relisha Rudd

Young, Black, & Missing: The Disappearance of Relisha Rudd | Post-Racial Updates | Scoop.it
Relisha’s disappearance could have been prevented, particularly since complaints had been logged against Shamika Young
Patrick A. Phillips's insight:

Police, reportedly, believe Shamika Young gave Relisha to Kahlil Tatum, who is also suspected of murdering his wife (who was found on March 20, shot to death in an Oxon Hill motel room) and begin searching in Washington’s Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Gardens, where Tatum was spotted shortly after having purchased gallon sized trash bags and lime from Home Depot; turning the search for Relisha into the possible recovery of her little body. Instead, police found Tatum’s body in the park 11 days after discovering his wife’s, dead of an apparent suicide… but still no sign of Relisha.
