  • Darren Wilson Not Indicted for the Death of Michael Brown

    Shane Paul Neil
    24 Nov 2014 | 6:28 pm
    A  Missouri grand jury has decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for the death of Michael Brown. The decision, though controversial, is not a surprise for those who have been paying close attention to the case since Brown was first shot on August 9. Officer Wilson, 28, shot and killed Brown in the midst of an arrest/altercation. The details of the incident have been hotly debated on the news and social media for nearly four months and have become a focal point in the ongoing debate over race and police brutality in America. Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson has already stated that…

I say tried because we all know that crass commercialism is what drives America, and getting people (especially some of you Negroes) to boycott anything that involves getting meaningless things at a discount is a challenge. Still, it's a start, and it's just one of the many positive things that I see coming out of the tragedy that took place in Ferguson, Missouri.

Third, the irresponsible parents who purchase toy guns for their children to play with in the first place.But field, it's not only black children who accidentally get killed by police officers.I know,…

I suppose that this should have been expected given the fact that we are talking about a white police officer killing an unarmed black teen.This is, after all, a black vs. white issue now. It shouldn't be this way. It should be a right versus wrong issue. But sadly, this is where we are in America. How you feel about the killing of Michael Brown depends largely on the color of your skin.Wingnuts like Ben Carson blame the president for this. “I actually believe that things…

It's been three months, and all the evidence the prosecutor had was submitted to this grand jury. Yes, a prosecutor can indict a "ham sandwich", but that is only if he wants to.

If you're not at a Rhymesayers concert, you can smell it in the air of frustration hovering over the immensely diverse and talented, but often disjointed, creative community. Prince lives on through a timeless musical legacy, but long gone are the days of his "hey!" and the Minneapolis Sound of Jimmy Jam Harris (son of Cornbread Harris, co-creator of "Hi Yo Silver," the first rock & roll record out of Minnesota) and Terry Lewis,…

This side is comprised of political and social organizations and activists, school teacher organizations, journalists, and health professionals; as well as women, worker, and youth organizations that patiently chip away…

They have added a dimension to my life that did not exist before. All that I know about TRUE LOVE I owe to them.There is no greater love on the planet for me than my love for these four. They are my greatest treasures. They are my greatest redeemers.I invite those looking to build and or start a family... add to their family... consider adoption. It will change your life in so many unexpected glorious ways.

Durant thanked each of his teammates individually and praised the sacrifice of his single mother, “the real MVP”.

The transit police killing of the 22-year-old at Oakland's Fruitvale Station on New Year's Day in 2009 sparked national outrage when video of it went viral. Finally, there was recent proof that black men face an outsize risk of death at the hands of law enforcement.

  • [VIDEO] Ferguson Makes Black Friday Protests Different This Year

    Black Friday used to be known as a retailers' cash cow and the (sometimes deadly) kick-off to Christmas shopping. Since the 2008 recession, however, the biggest shopping day of the year appears to be turning into a symbol of one long holiday weekend of national protest--and this year striking Walmart employees with support from fast-food workers have company. Inspired by Ferguson and galvanized by the grand jury's decision not to indict Darren Wilson, disparate calls are gaining steam for an economic boycott this Friday in honor of Michael Brown. This Black Friday could mark the popular…

Those officers were identified as Frank Garmack, 46, a six-year veteran of the force, and Timothy Lowman, 26, who had only been with the department since March. Both…

    Earlier this week, Dornnella Connors drove into Ferguson to join protesters supporting Michael Brown. Now, she’s blind in her left eye and can barely see out of her right one, according to St. Louis’ KMOV. Connors and her boyfriend De’Angelas Lee were leaving a gas station near Ferguson when multiple officers arrived. The officers were responding to reports of gun fire at the station and wanted to clear the area. Connors said Lee, who was driving, attempted to get “around” the officers and exit. Officers claim Lee drove towards them. One officer fired a…

    America is a country where practically anything is possible with the right money behind you. Black Americans’ spending power in this country is presently valued at approximately $1.1 trillion dollars annually. Yes trillion, with a “T”, per year. In the wake of the grand jury’s decision not to indict Darren Wilson for the killing of Michael Brown, Jr., frustration, anger and grief abound. The failing of the system struck a different nerve this time. Another Black life, instantly devalued by the system of so-called justice in this country.

    Exactly five years ago today, Tiger Woods was the most dominant athlete in the world. He was on pace to shatter Jack Nicklaus’ majors record. He made us care about golf. When he played, it was must-see TV. Unfortunately on the Thanksgiving holiday five years ago, he was must-see TV for a different reason. When it was reported there was an incident at his house that ended with him crashing into a fire hydrant, the aura of Tiger Woods changed forever. Following the story, there was a scandal. Then there was a divorce. Then there was debilitating injury after debilitating injury. In that…

    Pausing between songs at his intimate, mostly acoustic November 6 show at SPACE in Evanston, Illinois, New York singer/songwriter Garland Jeffreys quipped, “So, we’re on this little tour … I call it ‘The Rest of My Life Tour’ ….” At 72 and still bringing down the house, you can’t begrudge him the hint of road-weariness implicit in that observation. Since the release of his phenomenal come-back album, The King of In Between, in 2011, Garland Jeffreys has seemingly been on tour nonstop, pausing a bit to record his crowd-funded follow-up, Truth Serum, in 2013, before heading back…

    I had the TV on in the background this morning while I was being awfully domestic; folding laundry, washing dishes, and the like. A talk show host crowed out the “headline” that actress Melanie Griffith and her actor ex-husband Don Johnson have announced that they will not be seeing their daughter Dakota Johnson’s upcoming movie Fifty Shades of Grey when it opens in theaters. Fifty Shades is the film adaptation of the popular book series about a BDSM relationship that involves explicit sex scenes. I suppose the family’s announcement qualifies as news in that universe because there…

    Today will end the two-day hearing in the Ray Rice appeal case. Rice is seeking reinstatement into the NFL as well as pursuing back pay from the Baltimore Ravens. The NFL initially suspended Rice for two games for domestic abuse against his then fiancé. Then, upon the release of the now infamous elevator video depicting Rice punching and spitting on his fiancé, the NFL suspended him indefinitely. Rice and the NFLPA claim that the additional suspension was  a violation of the double jeopardy rule that is a part of the collective bargaining agreement. I, for one, am pulling for Rice’s…

    After days of deliberation, a grand jury declined Monday night (Nov. 24) to indict police officer Darren Wilson for the fatal Aug. 9 shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. The jury’s decision comes after weeks of anticipation and concern that justice will not be served for the lost life of the 18-year-old boy. Authorities were also concerned with how the Ferguson community might respond to the latest development in a case that has ignited racial tensions and pitted protesters and police against one another. The streets of Ferguson and the homes of those…

    The easy days are over. Its time for you to take the hard path. Do it. Start today. To do anything else would be to make a choice unworthy of you, and of us as a people. A movement is only as strong as the members of that movement. The easy days breed easy ways. Going to the gym is difficult. The act of lifting weights tears the muscles. They bleed and produce acid. They swell. It hurts bad. But when those muscles heal, the strength remains. The weight that tore those muscles in the past are no longer a challenge.
