SORT BY Relevancy
While much of the world last week was focusing on events in Ferguson, Mo., or on the case of a 12-year-old who displayed a realistic toy gun and was shot to death by a police officer in Cleveland, a different kind of confrontation involving police and race began playing out in federal court.
Nine Cleveland police officers -- eight whites and one Latino -- are suing the city, alleging racial discrimination. They say they were disciplined more harshly than black officers were in cases involving officer shootings.
Though dollar figures are not mentioned, the nine are seeking damages for lost pay, overtime and other benefits in the wake of a Nov. 29, 2012, high-speed car chase during which 13 officers fired 137 rounds at two unarmed black civilians in a school parking lot.
Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, each shot more than 20 times, were killed. The city has settled a suit by the families, who will receive $3 million.
The federal lawsuit by police in some ways is the flip side of the ongoing debate involving police actions, whose mood President Obama on Monday described as “a simmering distrust that exists between too many police departments and too many communities of color.”
AND MUCH MUCH MORE ABOUT THIS, SO TUNE IN...
Racism can be defined as views, practices and actions reflecting the belief that humanity is divided into distinct biological groups called races and that members of a certain race share certain attributes which make that group less desirable, more desirable, inferior or superior. The exact definition of racism is controversial both because there is little scholarly agreement about the meaning of the concept "race", and because there is also little agreement about what does and doesn't constitute discrimination. Some definitions would have it that any assumption that a person's behavior would be influenced by their racial categorization is racist, regardless of whether the action is intentionally harmful or pejorative. Other definitions only include consciously malignant forms of discrimination. Racism include discriminatory behaviors and beliefs based on cultural, national, ethnic, caste, or religious stereotypes. The practice of treating certain groups preferentially, or denying rights or benefits to certain groups, based on racial characteristics is termed “institutional racism”. Stokely Carmichael of the “Black Panthers Movement” is credited for coining the phrase institutional racism in the late 1960s. He defined the term as “the collective failure of an organization to provide an appropriate and professional service to people because of their color, culture or ethnic origin”.

Let's take another look at race relations. Has it improved? Has it gotten worse? Michael Brown, another young black man gets shot, ironically by a white police officer. Riots ensue. Protests begin. Football players from the St. Louis Rams pay tribute to Michael Brown with the "Hands up" gesture during a game. Should they be fined? Are relations between the races improving or not. We'll ask you to weight in. Are we respecting each other? And not just black or white. Red, white, black, brown. Everyone. Because racial tensions happen no matter what color, creed or nationality you are.
Racial Tensions. This week. "On-Air".

Immigration, Ferguson, Obamacare, Climate Change.
Think of these as the four horsemen of the Obama orchestrated American apocalypse.
Actually, there are other avenues of attack taken by Obama in his quest to fundamentally transform America, but the big four are stand-outs.
Thanks to Jonathan Gruber, more Americans now understand the promises of Obamacare were too good to be true, they were lies from the start.
Don's assessment after more than a week of Gruber videos going public: "We have an illegitimate government that has engaged in a breach of the social contract by committing premeditated fraud."
But Obamacare's not the only plank in Obama's agenda built on lies. HIs immigration and climate change goals are also deceptive to their core. And his ongoing efforts to expand and exploit racial divide provides, in some sense, distraction,while at the same time weakens and distorts our constitutional justice system.
At this writing, TV broadcast networks balk at the idea of carrying Obama's Thursday night immigration address. Maybe MSM now seeks to begin distancing from the Obama beast it helped to create. Maybe MSM thinks if Obama's trashing of constitutional bounds isn't live on TV, the sheeple won't see what he's doing as important.
Of all the Obama prime time addresses, this is the one where he's taking his role as president farthest from its constitutonal limits. He is, in effect, changing the nature of American government. If you wanted fundamental transformation, this is it.
What's happening now is unprecidented in the history of America. Join us Friday (or for the replay that follows) as we continue to connect the dots in these perilous times.

How many times have you watched the news and thought "Man, they don't talk about this enough or they sensationalize others stories. Or how about when they bring so much attention to the happenings of one city, a larger city and say nothing about the things happening in the smaller communities. This week join me, Mista.Ecks and maybe even Sada as we talk about the unfair treatment that the media gives to a majority of people, stories and communities. And for what? All for the sake of ratings? Think about it. There are stories everywhere. Not only in the larger communities, but in the smaller, lesser known communities as well.
We'll talk about all this and more. This week. "On-Air".
Do we need a clearer picture of the underlying causes and solutions to the painful dilemma of racial discord? This show, author and metaphysical instructor, Minister Gabree Amlak will give us some remedial measures that can be applied to resolve the tumultuous racial conditions as well as discuss the best ideas for healing.
