AJC Blasts Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan Over His Condemnation of Jewish Organizations

American Jewish Committee blasts Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan over statement he made condemning Jewish organizations.

There rare instances in which Nation of Islam’s leader, Louis Farrakhan utters lucid and factual statements. I find that the vast majority of the statements he utters are inflammatory, divisive and racist. The American Jewish Committee released a press release today condemning Farrakhan for his hate letter to Jewish organizations. It seems that he has such a hatred of Jews and the white establishment in this country that one has to wonder how can he say he is following God’s words.

AJC Denounces Farrakhan Hate Letter to Jewish Organizations

NEW YORK, June 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — AJC denounced Nation of Islam (NOI) leader Minister Louis Farrakhan after it received a virulently anti-Semitic letter signed by Farrakhan along with two anti-Semitic books published by the NOI. The books use traditional anti-Semitic stereotypes and conspiracy theories to assert Jewish control of the African-American economy and the historic Trans-Atlantic slave trade.

Reverting to a ploy he has used many times in the past, Farrakhan asked Jewish leaders for “dialogue,” while at the same time accusing Jews of “the most vehement anti-Black behavior in the annals of our history in America and the world.” If Jewish leaders decline his offer to help him “in the repair of my people from the damage that has been done by your ancestors to mine…,” then “Allah (God) and His Messiah will bring you and your people to disgrace and ruin…”

“Farrakhan again demonstrates how central anti-Semitism remains to his organization’s worldview,” said Ken Stern, director of AJC’s Department of Anti-Semitism and Extremism. Stern pointed out that the two new books are functional re-writes of the classic anti-Semitic fabrication, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.”

“Just as the Protocols blamed all that went wrong in the world on a Jewish conspiracy, these latest NOI publications are fabrications designed to blame Jews for slavery and other historic misfortunes suffered by Blacks,” said Stern. Source: PR News Wire

I believe Louis Farrakhan is deliberately ignoring all the ills in the black community and instead blaming the white man and Jews for these ills. There is the issue of personal responsibility that he has chosen to ignore. Bashing Jews and whites sounds better to him. To be bluntly honest, there is a reason why the Jews are highly successful. They stick together, something that is largely absent in many pockets within the black community. Let’s practice brotherhood and sisterhood in the true sense of the word. We are each other’s keepers and let’s put the riff-raff in our communities on blast.

UPDATE#1: We incorrectly stated that the Atlanta Journal Constitution had issued the press release. It was, in fact, the American Jewish Committee. We have made the corrections.

Dontae Morris Wanted in Shooting Deaths of Tampa Officers David Curtis & Jeff Kocab

Tampa police department seeking to arrest Dontae Morris in the shooting deaths of Officers David Curtis and Jeff Kocab after routing traffic stop.

Have you seen Dontae Morris? Well, Tampa police are seeking Morris in the shooting deaths of Officers David Curtis and Jeff Kocab. It is amazing that this dirtbag has eluded capture for so long. The police also want to talk to Morris’ brother, Dwayne Daniel Callaway, in connection with the crime. He is wanted on two counts of violation of probation stemming from a domestic battery charge, according to Tampa Bay Online.

Police Chief Jane Castor said the $95,000 reward is the largest ever offered in a police officer’s death. The money has come from the FBI, the U.S. Marshals Service, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Crime Stoppers and the Police Defense Fund.

The search for Morris, 24, stretches across the state. Early this morning, officers again donned armor as they prepared to search another location – a tip that didn’t pan out. Morris’ relatives have called for him to turn himself in. Source: Tampa Bay Online

Why am I not surprised that Morris is an ex-convict.  He was released from state prison in April after serving time on a drug charge, only to graduate to committing a more heinous crime. He was also wanted on a misdemeanor warrant in Jacksonville, Fla. Anyone harboring this dirtbag should be ashamed and must come to their senses and contact the police. For anyone who has a problem with me calling a cop killer a dirtbag, take a look at his rap sheet first. Dontae Morris is dangerous and belongs behind bars for the rest of his life or be given the death penalty. If you have any information in the shooting of these two officers, please contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477, go online to make an anonymous report at www.crimestopperstb.com.

RNC Chief Michael Steele Says President Obama Reduced Gulf Oil Spill Crisis to "Talking Point"

RNC Chief Michael Steele says its unconscionable President Obama It is would reduce the oil crisis and the people of the Gulf to a ‘talking point.’

As much as I can’t stand Michael Steele, I do receive the press releases issued by the RNC. That’s in part to stay abreast of the garbage they are spewing. Well, Steele has released a statement today decrying President Obama’s recent remarks an a bi-partisan meeting. Here are Steele’s comments:

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Michael Steele released the following statement today:

“It is unconscionable that President Obama would reduce the oil crisis and the people of the Gulf to a ‘talking point.’ Instead of showing executive leadership and answering Senator Alexander’s question, President Obama suggested that it was inappropriate to bring up the oil spill in an energy meeting. Plugging the leak in the Gulf is not a partisan talking point. Americans deserve a President that will put his own political goals aside to find real solutions for the people of the Gulf. Rather than use this crisis to ram through his liberal, job-killing national energy tax, President Obama should put his focus on managing a major environmental disaster.” – RNC Chairman Michael Steele

I am still trying to figure out what the Republicans’ strategy is for stemming this massive oil flow in the Gulf. Why do Michael Steele’s words continue to ring hollow?

Randall Cunningham, Ex-Eagles Quarterback’s 2-Year Old Son Drowns in Backyard Hot Tub

Ex-Eagles quarterback, Randall Cunningham’s two-year old son drowns in hottub in backyard.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, Randall Cunningham, after his two-year old son drowned in a backyard hot tub.

Las Vegas police Lt. Dennis Flynn says it appeared to have been an accident. He says a woman at the house with several other children found the boy about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday and began trying to resuscitate him.

The child was pronounced dead at St. Rose Dominican Hospital Siena campus in Henderson. Cunningham starred at UNLV and played for 16 years in the NFL, mostly for the Philadelphia Eagles. Source: AJC

It is never easy when a parent has to bury a child. This is a sad turn of events, in the same vein as Mike Tyson losing his young daughter. Cunningham is now an ordained minister. He was not present at the home when the toddler was found.

10 Yr Old Georgia Girl Found Pregnant, Two Male Relatives in Custody on Sexual Assault, Sodomy Charges

I first read this article this morning, and I must say that I found it incredulous. My first thoughts were this could not be happening. But as I gathered and collected myself, I began to wonder how does she feel. According to reports, the abuse began some time ago. Imagine how she must have felt as the society continued to exist whilst she lived in a world where violence was perpetrated against her defenseless, ten-year-old body! Imagine, if you will, how she watches tv and sees other children her age, functioning in what appears to be normal environments. While nothing in her world was normal.

The question one would ask, is who in their right mind would continually over time violate a ten year old person? Much like some of you, we have small children. I have an eight year old daughter, and since this morning, my world hasn’t been the same. From time to time, my thouhgts flash to her to try to get a sense of what she must think of the rest of us, as she imagines no one came to her aid.

My heart is heavy, but as much as I feel saddened, children like her continue to motivate me to give voice to their helplessness. I want each and every one of you reading this to become more aware of the systemic violence that takes place in our homes. Once again I reiterate, that violence against women and children must stop.

I ask you to take a look around your surroundings. If you suspect violence is happening, report it to the National Domestic Violence hotline. Each of us is responsible for what happens to helpless children. This young girl is scarred for the rest of her life due to domestic abuse. We need not shy away from it. The fact is that when she was touched inappropriately by family members she became violated.

As we search for answers, one thing becomes apparent. That family needs counseling. Violence begets violence. The aunt in whose care this ten year old was left has been accused of having incestuous relations with her nephews. The same nephews who raped their younger relative. So the cycle of abuse continued from one generation to the next. Pray for them. They all need our prayers. Pray for this young girl. My heart is broken. I want to reach out to her and tell her it is going to be all right. At some point we must realize that we are each our brother’s keeper. We need to live out the concept that each one, teach one, each one reach one, each one, need one.

There is an old African proverb which says, it takes a village to raise a child. I want to ask where was the village around this child? Where were the other family members while this was going on? Did no one observe that she was withdrawn? Make sure that you create a village of caregivers, family members and friends around your children. It takes all of us to keep our children safe. We must stop the violence against women and children.

Tampa Police Officers David Curtis & Jeffrey Kocab Fatally Shot During Routine Traffice Stop

Two Tampa police officers, David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab, fatally shot during routine traffice stop early Tuesday morning.

Two Tampa police officers have died following a shooting during a routine traffic stop. According to MyFoxTampa, Officer David Curtis, 31, died at Tampa General Hospital and Officer Jeffrey Kocab, also 31, died earlier following the shooting early Tuesday morning.

A massive search is on for a man and woman who were driving a red Toyota Camry. Police say Curtis pulled over the Camry because it didn’t have a visible tag. He called for backup because the male suspect had a misdemeanor warrant.

A few minutes later, police received a 911 call that the officers had been shot. Authorities found the officers sprawled on the ground. The male suspect is believed to be the shooter. Source

It is a sad commentary that police officers continue to come under fire by rogue elements in our society. My thought and prayers go out the families of the officers. Officer Kocab’s wife is nine-months pregnant, thile Officer Curtis is a father of four.

Hector Castro Charged with Capital Murder for Fatally Beating Toddler Over US-Ghana World Cup Soccer Match

Hector Castro charged with capital murder for fatally beating his two-year old stepdaughter becuase she wouldn’t stop crying as he watched World Cup soccer match.

Hector Castro, 27, is accused of fatally beating his two-year old stepdaughter when she wouldn’t stop crying as he watched a World Cup game has been charged with capital murder, according to media reports.

Castro, who lives in McAllen, TX, was charged Monday after his Saturday arrest and is being held on $1 million bond at the Hidalgo County jail. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, police chief Victor Rodriguez says Castro told investigators the toddler wouldn’t stop crying while he was trying to watch the U.S.-Ghana matchup Saturday.

This is unconscionable and why are these men abusing their stepchildren? This is the second incident the Hinterland Gazette has reported on in a week. The police said the child was severely beaten and suffered several broken ribs. There’s more. According to the AJC, police said a screw or bolt was forced down her throat in an apparent attempt to make it look like she choked to death.

I am sure Hector Castro won’t see the outside of another prison for the rest of his life. He should get the death penalty for this unspeakable act against this child. Was the soccer match really that important in the grand scheme of things?

Pregnant 10 Year Old leads to Sex Charges for Three (Photo credit: WSB-TV)

I am shocked beyond words to learn that two men, Danny Lee Arnold, 19 and his brother, Thomas Marcus Arnold, 21, were arrested in connection to the sexual molestation of a pregnant 10 year old girl. Yes, I said, pregnant 10 year old girl. It gets worse. The aunt of the brothers, Lisa Arnold, was also arrested on incest charges. She had sex with her two nephews. This is so nasty and I hope they lock them all up for the rest of their lives.

According to WSB-TV, deputies said they learned from workers with the Department of Family and Children’s Services that the girl had been molested for several years.

Police charged Danny Lee Arnold, 19, and his brother Thomas Marcus Arnold, 21, with child molestation, incest, cruelty to children and sexual battery. Thomas Arnold faced an additional charge of aggravated sodomy.

While investigating the case the GBI also arrested the aunt of the Arnold brothers, Lisa Arnold on incest charges. Agents said they found evidence that she had sex with her two nephews. The girl is now in the care of relatives. The three suspects are being held in the Fulton County Jail. 

How can anyone do this to a child? This is sick and disturbing on so many levels. The child’s parents failed her and her aunt failed her as well. If there was ever cause to bring the guillotine back, this would be the perfect time. What a bunch of depraved animals.

UPDATE#1: According to 11 Alive News, the 10 year old girl had an abortion, though authorities were able to use DNA testing to determine which of the brothers may have impregnated her.

NYPD Officer David London Acquitted in Brutal Baton Beating of Walter Harvin, Black Iraq War Veteran

NYPD Officer David London acquitted of charges in the brutal baton beating of Walter Harvin, unarmed black Iraq war veteran even though video shows he used excessive force.

It is unconscionable that yet another police officer has walked scot-free after being accused of police brutality. David London, a 15 year veteran of the New York Police Department was acquitted in the brutal 2008 beating of Walter Harvin, an Iraqi war veteran, who was unarmed and in a prone position, according to the NY Post. This is bad and sends a horrible signal about the perceived right of police officers to engage in questionable behavior free from prosecution.

Is Walter Harvin’s rights worth nothing? He reportedly sustained more than 20 blows to the head and shoulders by London’s metal police baton. This is further proof why many New Yorkers hate the NYPD. They get away with unlawful behavior.
