A federal judge in Texas has ruled that 'ObamaCare' is unconstitutional

A federal judge in Texas has ruled that 'ObamaCare' is unconstitutional
A federal judge in Texas ruled on Friday the entire Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional due to a recent change in federal tax law. The ruling came a day before the December 15 deadline to sign up for 2019 health coverage through the Affordable Care Act's marketplace. People can still sign up for coverage through Saturday.  "Court's decision does not affect this season's open enrollment," reads a notice on HealthCare.gov, where people can sign up for coverage. The Trump White House has said that the law will remain in place for now. The ruling is certain to be appealed. "We expect this ruling will be appealed to the Supreme Court. Pending the appeal process, the law remains in place," White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. Sanders said President Trump is calling on Congress to pass a measure that would replace the Affordable Care Act, which is also…

OUR OWN WORSE ENEMY

OUR OWN WORSE ENEMY
In the United States, the abortion rate for Black women is almost 4 times that of White women. On average, 900 Black babies are aborted every day in the United States. This tragedy continues to impact the population levels of African-Americans in the United States.

96.2% of Black women having abortions are not married.

Black abortions by age:
Under 20 — 8.8%
20-24 — 31.1%
25-29 — 34.3%
30-34 — 15.8%
35 and Older — 10%

More than crime.
More than accidents.
More than cancer,
heart disease and AIDS.

Abortion has taken more Black American lives than every other cause of death combined since 1973.

Black women are roughly 13 percent of the female population, but black women account for some 30 percent of abortions. #Black LivesMatter ?

In New York City, thousands more black babies are aborted each year than born alive.

Southington police investigate racist video

Alabama’s attorney general removed the black district attorney from #EJBradford’s police shooting investigation after pics surfaced of the D.A. kicking it with a local protest leader:

Alabama’s attorney general removed the black district attorney from #EJBradford’s police shooting investigation after pics surfaced of the D.A. kicking it with a local protest leader:
As protests cripple the affluent Alabama town where a police officer shot and killed a black man on Thanksgiving night, the state’s attorney general has taken over the investigation, removing the first black man to serve as district attorney in the state’s largest county.

Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall sent a letter to Jefferson County D.A. Danny Carr, notifying Carr that he was removing Carr from the ongoing investigation concerning the mall shooting that left 21-year-old Emantic “E.J.” Bradford Jr. dead.

Marshall’s reasons for removing Carr from leading the investigation had nothing to do with anyone involved in the shooting. Instead, Marshall cited a Facebook photo posted by Carlos Chaverst Jr., who has been leading the protests seeking justice and transparency in the wake of Bradford’s death…

Tennessee Detective Caught Beating a Handcuffed Black Man Still Collecting Checks on Desk Duty

Tennessee Detective Caught Beating a Handcuffed Black Man Still Collecting Checks on Desk Duty
A white Hamilton County, Tennessee, detective caught on camera punching and kicking a black man in handcuffs is now on desk duty as police launch an investigation into the case.

Video of the Dec. 3 incident captured by a neighbor shows Detective Blake Kilpatrick beating 24-year-old Charles Toney, punching him in the ribs and face and kicking him even as another law enforcement officer appeared to have Toney subdued and on the ground.

According to Toney’s attorney, Lee Merritt, Toney sustained a collapsed lung and broken nose, ribs, and finger as a result of the violent confrontation.

“What you can see plainly in the video, you see an officer striking a citizen, a pedestrian, a suspect repeatedly. He’s defenseless. He’s not able to defend himself,” Merritt told WCRB-TV during a FaceTime interview Tuesday.

As the Chattanooga Times Free Press reports, law enforcement were trying to arrest Toney…

Three bullets from behind: why did police kill a black man in a mall? After the killing of EJ Bradford, questions remain: Had police simply killed a bystander? Was Bradford actually shepherding others to safety as gunfire erupted?

Three bullets from behind: why did police kill a black man in a mall?  After the killing of EJ Bradford, questions remain: Had police simply killed a bystander? Was Bradford actually shepherding others to safety as gunfire erupted?
There is nothing to mark the spot where EJ Bradford fell.

In an unremarkable corner of an unremarkable Alabama shopping mall, just a few miles from Birmingham, the cradle of the civil rights movement, routine has already gone back to normal. It is less than three weeks since the 21 year-old African American was gunned down by a police officer in circumstances that remain shrouded in controversy and conflicted narratives.

EJ Bradford was shot three times from behind by officer, autopsy reveals

The white tiled flooring outside a footwear store had been covered in blood on the night of Thanksgiving when Bradford was present at the scene of an armed altercation involving at least two other men. But now it shimmers clean under the glaring lights, as Christmas ca…

Manhunt launched after two white men attack black woman at Walmart for ‘no apparent reason’

Manhunt launched after two white men attack black woman at Walmart for ‘no apparent reason’ Social media users identified two white men accused of racially harassing a black woman while shopping at a Wal-Mart store in Louisiana.
The two men — identified as 22-year-old Dylan Reynolds and 24-year-old Michael Walters — are wanted on hate crime charges in the Nov. 29 incident the West Monroe store, reported the News Star.
The woman fled in her vehicle, and one of the men chased her on foot while pushing an empty shopping cart — which he “violently” pushed into the rear of her vehicle when she slowed down for a speed bump.
Police said the cart caused more than $1,000 in damage to her vehicle.
The two men then got into a dark gray Dodge Ram 2500 pickup truck and sped away.

'SLOT-TIME' RIKERS ISLAND

'SLOT-TIME' RIKERS ISLAND Over the past 18 years living in NYC, I've been to Rikers Island about 5 times. I found out the hard way that the jails reputation for violence and corruption lived up to its billing (an then some). But the one thing that had me trippin the most about the island, was slot-time.

On my second trip to the island i told my man that i knew from the outside that i was about to use the phone. "Na, i dont think you can bro." "Wachu mean? I can't hop on the jack?" "Na. I think its one of them niggas 'slot-time'." "Slot-time? the fuck is that?"

My buddy informed me that slot-time is a period of time (usually 35-45 min.), in which only one person can use a certain phone at a certain time. Say you needed to make a call, and the only few phones available 'belonged' to another inmate. Even if they're not on it, u still can't use it.

Say u did use the phone. The inmate who's slot-time it is …

ASU Preparatory Academy in Phoenix, Three students dressed as the KKK

ASU Preparatory Academy in Phoenix, Three students dressed as the KKK During a brief period of incarceration when I was 12 years old, I learned some valuable life lessons. I was serving three days of in-school suspension for a locker-room fracas that broke out when I punched a classmate who called me a racial slur because I had secured the co-starring role in our junior high production of Huckleberry Finn. During my time in the hole, I found out that he called me “Nigger Mike” because the character I played was actually named “Nigger Jim.” However, the theater teacher and play director had wisely decided to nix the n-word from the script. But when I broke the news to my mother, she was curiously calm about me being locked up north (the in-school-suspension room was on the north side of the cafeteria building), explaining: “Some people need punching.” A few parents at an Arizona high school expressed those same sentiments last week when they went to see their children perform in a high sch…

9-year-old dies by suicide after racist taunts and bullying her family says

9-year-old dies by suicide after racist taunts and bullying her family says The family of an Alabama girl who died Dec. 3 said she committed suicide after being bullied with racist taunts. Police in the family's hometown of Linden said they are still investigating the death of 9-year-old McKenzie Nicole Adams and that there are conflicting reports of what happened leading up to it. Police also said they have not seen any reports that McKenzie was being bullied. Adams' aunt, Eddwina Harris, told the Tuscaloosa News that the alleged bullying her niece experienced at U.S. Jones Elementary School in Demopolis stemmed from her friendship with a boy at her school. “She was being bullied the entire school year, with words such as ‘kill yourself,’ ‘you think you’re white because you ride with that white boy,’ ‘you ugly,’ ‘black b----,’ ‘just die’,” Harris told the paper. The family said Adams was found dead at her home by her grandmother. They told the outlet Adams died by suicide. An offic…

'Racism exists at all levels' of Thunder Bay, Ont., police service, review finds

'Racism exists at all levels' of Thunder Bay, Ont., police service, review finds
Police investigations into the deaths of nine Indigenous people in Thunder Bay, Ont., were so problematic that they should be re investigated, an independent review released Wednesday recommends. The recommendation by Ontario's police watchdog is one of 44 in a report that concludes the city's police service is rife with racism and racist attitudes. "The failure to conduct adequate investigations and the premature conclusions drawn in these cases is, at least in part, attributable to racist attitudes and racial stereotyping," the report finds. "Officers repeatedly relied on generalized notions about how Indigenous people likely came to their deaths and acted, or refrained from acting, based on those biases." The 206-page report by the Office of the Independent Police Review Director calls the findings deeply troubling. Director Gerry McNeilly began the probe of Thunder B…
