MAYOR CONDEMNS ALABAMA PASTOR'S ANTI-GENTRIFICATION SIGN 'BLACK FOLKS STAY OUT OF WHITE CHURCHES'

MAYOR CONDEMNS ALABAMA PASTOR'S ANTI-GENTRIFICATION SIGN 'BLACK FOLKS STAY OUT OF WHITE CHURCHES'

Church leaders and the mayor denounced the racial “division” caused by a Birmingham, Alabama, pastor who put up a provocative sign reading “Black folks need to stay out of white churches" to fight gentrification. New Era Baptist Church Pastor Michael R. Jordan told WBRC-TV he posted the sign in protest of Church of the Highlands—Alabama’s largest non-denominational, multicultural church—opening up a new branch for its more than 40,000 weekly worshippers nearby in Birmingham. On the reverse side of the sign outside the overwhelmingly African-American Cotton Avenue church, Jordan’s sign reads “White folks refused to be our neighbors.”

White supremacist Senate candidate praises anti-Semitic robocalls targeting Diane Feinstein

White supremacist Senate candidate praises anti-Semitic robocalls targeting Diane Feinstein
Patrick Little may be considered a long-shot candidate to replace California Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D). But that’s not stopping supporters from purchasing radio ads full of anti-Semitic slurs aimed at Feinstein — and calling on listeners to support Little, a neo-Nazi and avowed anti-Semite. The 90-second robocalls, first reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, peppered California airwaves this week. The robocall encouraged listeners to back Little, who the robocall says has “vowed to end Jewish control over America.” On Gab, the account for The Road to Power — which sponsored the robocalls — saidover 350,000 of the robocalls had gone out to Californians.

Mother of Tamir Rice to Open Afrocentric Student Center in Honor of Son
In November of 2014, Samaria Rice endured a parent's worst nightmare when her 12-year-old son was shot and killed by Cleveland police officers outside Cudell Recreation Center. The police had been called about an "armed person," which turned out to be a child playing with a toy gun.

The murder of Tamir Rice sparkedcommunity and national outrage, but the two offers involved in the shooting were never criminally charged. However, Tamir's mother, Samaria Rice is honoring the memory of her son by starting a new Afrocentric center in his name as part of the Tamir Rice Foundation

Rice has purchased the old Slavic News building off St. Clair in the hopes of turning it into an after-school center for children. The center's goal, according tothe fundraising page, is to have a "world in which all children feel safe, nurtured and valued — especially in their darkest times."

Black Culture Is a Central Part of Royal Wedding

Black Culture Is a Central Part of Royal Wedding

Royal watchers wondered how the wedding of the Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, to Harry, the Duke of Sussex, would nod to black identity, and the resounding answer came in the ceremony on Saturday. The duchess is the daughter of an African-American mother and a white father, and her marriage ceremony threaded black culture throughout.
Central to the day was a stirring address by The Most Rev. Michael Bruce Curry, the presiding bishop of the American Episcopal Church and its first African-American leader. He quoted the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and touched on themes of universal love. It was delivered in a cadence that is steeped in an African-American religious oratorical tradition that broader America first heard in Dr. King speechesKing’s speeches.

Midway through Spike Lee’sBlacKkKlansman, mostly set in the 1970s, a white cop explains to the Colorado Springs Police Department’s only black cop that the way to push racist ideologies to the average American who doesn’t consider himself racist is to slip it in beneath other issues, like immigration and crime and affirmative action and tax reform.

Racist lawyer kicked out of his office space

Racist lawyer kicked out of his office space

Racist lawyer Aaron Schlossberg will have to find new office space — and an attorney of his own. The 44-year-old was kicked out of his Madison Avenue work space Thursday after he was wascaptured in a hate-filled rant at Spanish-speaking restaurant workers — and then a Congressman filed a formal complaint to the state court system’s disciplinary committee. Schlossberg had been using a business center in 275 Madison Ave. as an office address for his private law firm — but has been given the boot over the shocking video that went viral Wednesday. “We have terminated his services agreement with us,” Hayim Grant, the president of Corporate Suites, which operates the business center, told The Post Thursday, adding that he was “completely shocked” by the nearly minute-long clip.

A white woman called the cops on a black real estate investor. Police defended him.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen awave of high-profile racial profiling incidents — white people calling the police because black people or people of color look “suspicious.”
But some officers aren’t happy to be called in these instances, as a new video shows. Michael Hayes, a black real estate investor in Memphis, was inspecting a house in need of repairs on May 5. A white woman who lived in the neighborhood demanded to know why he was outside. In a video posted to YouTube, Hayes explained that he was an investor looking at the property and that the person who owned the home knew he would be there. He also showed the woman an investment contract signed by the owner, as well as a letter showing that he had written permission to enter the house. The woman, still suspicious of Hayes, called the police. When they arrived, Hayes began recording his interaction with the officers, explaining that he had pe…

Dad walking child in DC park stopped by police after call

This Spring has been surreal when it comes to Black people trying to live a normal life and racists trying to stop it by calling police. It cannot be denied that some White people in this country are using the police as a weapon to inflict racist emotional harm on innocent Blacks. The stories keep coming from all over the country about White people calling the police on Black people for no reason. Black people can’t BBQ in peace, wait at a Starbucks, drive the streets of America, shop and now apparently can’t walk their baby in a park in our nation’s capitol without the police being called. The latest incident occurred with Donald Sherman and his baby Caleb, who he was pushing in a stroller. He posted the following on Facebook:

Federal Lawsuit Filed Over Obama Center Planned Park Use

Federal Lawsuit Filed Over Obama Center Planned Park Use As the Obama Presidential Center looks for new city approval this week a federal lawsuit is filed opposing the use of Jackson Park. The group filing the suit, Protect Our Parks, says the Obama Foundation is serving its needs and not the needs of the public. The Obama center plans to build a 12 story building and other structures between 59th 62nd streets along Stony Island Avenue. Streets like Marquette Drive will close. That will impact neighbors and the wildlife as major changes will take place at Jackson Park. Protect our Parks filed a federal lawsuit saying the Obama Foundation has committed "an institutional bait and switch." Friends of the Park, a separate group that fought and prevented building the Lucas Museum near Soldier Field is not a party to this lawsuit.

At emotional hearing, LAPD officer gets 36 months in jail in assault caught on video

At emotional hearing, LAPD officer gets 36 months in jail in assault caught on video

Wearing dark sunglasses inside a downtown L.A. courtroom, Sandra Thomas approached the witness stand Thursday and spoke about the Los Angeles police officer she holds responsible for her daughter's death.
"I have to ask God to help me learn how to forgive her," she said to a judge before the sentencing of LAPD Officer Mary O'Callaghan. Thomas' 35-year-old daughter was handcuffed and assaulted by O'Callaghan during an arrest in 2012. She died shortly after being placed in the back of a squad car, complaining she couldn't breathe.

The encounter, which was captured on a dashboard camera, showed O'Callaghan striking Alesia Thomas — a mother of two — with an open hand and kicking her in the crotch. The officer then can be seen smoking a cigarette on the street, as Alesia Thomas fell unconscious.

Sandra Thomas, who works as a medical assistant, asked why O'Callaghan didn&#…
