STAND YOUR GROUND:  If you weren’t concerned about Stand Your Ground laws, then you may change your mind after reading about a white Georgia homeowner, Philip Sailors, fatally shooting a Hispanic man, Rodrigo Diaz, who was simply turning in his driveway.  Philip Sailors got no jail time, just probation and he didn’t even apologize to the family of the slain man.

GWINNETT COUNTY, GA– A Gwinnett County man accepted a plea deal Monday for the fatal shooting of a man, who mistakenly pulled into the wrong driveway.

Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh was in the courtroom as Philip Sailors plead to the misdemeanor charge for the January 2013 shooting in Lilburn.

Channel 2 Action News broke the news Friday about the plea deal which reduced a murder charge to the misdemeanor charge of involuntary manslaughter and spared the homeowner any jail time.

People Kavanaugh spoke with were surprised that Sailors made no statement and offered no apology to the victim’s family during the hearing.

Rodrigo Diaz, the victim’s father, told Kavanaugh in Spanish he wasn’t expecting anything today.

Investigators say GPS misguided Rodrigo Diaz to the wrong house that night. Diaz was trying to get to the home across the street so he could pick up a friend to go roller-skating. When Sailors saw the strange car, he came out shooting. He fired once into the air.

Investigators say the second shot went through the window and struck Diaz in the head.
With his guilty plea Sailors will serve 12-months’ probation and pay a $500 fine.

[…] After the hearing, Diaz’s father, Rodrigo Diaz Senior. told Kavanaugh that Sailors could have received a stronger punishment, but he believed that would only end up destroying two families.

“Civil Rights Activist” Piers Morgan Tells Black Community to Bury N-Word

In what can be considered a click-bait article in the Daily Mail, “civil rights activist” Piers Morgan is telling blacks what to do about the n-word. Singer John Legend said it best in a tweet:  “ya’ll better thank for providing that simple, straightforward solution to racism. So brilliant. why didn’t we think of this???”

 

The N-word is a grotesque, odious, evil stain on the English language. … Yet far from receding in society, it’s spreading; out of the once clearly defined confines of private usage in the black community, into the public hallways of every school in America. This has to be wrong, doesn’t it? Better, surely, to have it expunged completely. Eradicated, obliterated, tied to a literary post and whipped into such brutal submission that it never rears its vicious head again.

 

Don’t get me wrong, there’s plenty wrong with using the word n*gger and its variations, but we don’t need Piers Morgan to play the role of the moral compass on this one. How many blacks have been calling for others to stop using the word?

 

Hey Piers, stick to your day job….leave race relations alone.

 

Clayton County Investigator David Daniel to Resign Over Racist Facebook Post

Clayton County Investigator David Daniel to Resign Over Racist Facebook Post

Clayton County investigator David Daniel will resign over a racially derogatory comment he made in a Facebook post involving the shooting of 1-year-old Rodrickus Robinson who was struck by a stray bullet in the parking lot of an Atlanta apartment complex Saturday night.

Daniel wrote that “violence with guns is unfortunately a part of the black culture and will never get better until the government stops supporting them and they are taught to work for what they get and not take from others.”

Rodrickus Robinson is currently hospitalized after he was shot in the arm. He is in danger of losing the arm and faces a second surgery.  Investigators believe Robinson was caught in the crossfire when a group of men starting shooting at each other in the parking lot of the Forest Cove Apartments on New Town Circle. Levar Antwan Reed was arrested on Monday. Police are looking for more suspects.

David Daniel took down the offensive post. He offered an explanation in a second post:  “Welfare was first created to assist families in need but has developed into a long-term income. Those that have no ambition to do any better for themselves and end up in neighborhoods where this sort of behavior is all too common. I am glad the child did not end up a fatality and a statistic.”

Forrest Lucas Apologizes for Wife’s Facebook Rant About “Minorities”

Forrest Lucas Apologizes for Wife’s Facebook Rant About “Minorities”

Lucas Oil founder, Forrest Lucas, takes out a full-page ad in Thursday’s Indianapolis Star apologizing for his wife’s Facebook rant about being “sick and tired of minorities.” He said his wife, Charlotte Lucas, regrets her Facebook post disparaging minority groups and that her words were “harsh and insensitive.”

Here’s Charlotte Lucas’ offensive Facebook rant:

“I’m sick and tired of minorities running our country! As far as I’m concerned, I don’t think that atheists (minority), muslims (minority)n or any other minority group has the right to tell the majority of the people in the United States what they can and cannot do here. Is everyone so scared that they can’t fight back for what is right or wrong with this country?”

Forrest Lucas wrote the Facebook post did not “reflect the feelings in her heart.” He added, “Those who know Charlotte appreciate that she is a caring and loving person who has great respect for everyone.”

Evidently Charlotte Lucas has very little respect for minorities. Gee, I wonder how many “minorities” work for Lucas Oil?

Nothing like a one-percenter ranting about minorities….Charlotte Frances, vice president of Lucas Oil, which she co-founded with her husband in 1989, went on a sickening Facebook rant about atheists, Muslims and “other minority group[s]” that tell the “majority” what to do, The Indy Channel reports.

“I’m sick and tired of minorities running our country!” Lucas wrote. “As far as I’m concerned, I don’t think that atheists (minority), muslims [sic] (minority) nor any other minority group has the right to tell the majority of the people in the United States what they can and cannot do here. Is everyone so scared that they can’t fight back for what is right or wrong with his country?”

Here’s a screenshot of Charlotte Lucas’ rant:

But she didn’t back down when confronted by Call 6 Investigators:

“I was very upset when I wrote that,” she said. “I will not elaborate other than to say that there are certain people who are trying to make the whole world eat what they want to eat and do what they want to do. I don’t think it’s any of their business what I put in my mouth. Thank you.”

Spoken like a true one-percenter turning her nose up at the rest of America….Only the rich white people in America have a right to speak up, right? Gee, I wonder how many atheists, Muslims and “other minorities” work for Lucas Oil?

Rush Limbaugh’s Sidekick James ‘Snerdley’ Golden: Blacks Worse Off Since Jim Crow Ended

Rush Limbaugh Sidekick James ‘Snerdley’ Golden: Blacks Worse Off Since Jim Crow Ended (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Rush Limbaugh’s sidekick, James ‘Snerdley’ Golden believes blacks are worse off since Jim Crow ended. He believes blacks were doing better during segregation.

During an interview with Ginni Thomas for the Daily Caller, Golden said, “Isn’t a shame that the good old days were the days when things were segregated legally in this country?”“The good old days, when two-parent families were the norm in the black community — and they were — two parent families were the norm back during segregation days.”

James ‘Snerdley’ Golden continues:  “Howard University was graduating doctors and lawyers who were qualified, not through Affirmative Action, but genuinely qualified through hard work and merit by the score.” “And there was this sense we were achieving against all the odds, and we were going to push and break through. Those were during the days of segregation.”

The America James ‘Snerdley’ Golden longs for is one in which blacks were forced to sit at the back of the bus, use separate entrances, use separate facilities, denied service at lunch counters, and basically treated like sh*t. That’s the America Rush Limbaugh’s associate longs for.

The #Economist Apologizes for Book Review Saying Slavery Wasn’t All Bad

The Economist is under fire after it published a review of Edward Baptist’s book, “The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Makinng of American Capitalism,” on Thursday, claiming the book unfairly portrayed slave owners. Wow, I don’t think the slaves were lazing around on plantations like they were on vacation at a Sandals resort in the Caribbean. Give me a break….unfair portrayal of slave owners?

The line that irked many:  “Almost all the blacks in his book are victims, almost all the whites are villains. This is not history; it’s advocacy.” Um, the last time I checked, the word “slave” doesn’t mean privileged.

The Economist issued an apology Friday morning.:”There has been widespread criticism of this, and rightly so. Slavery was an evil system, in which the great majority of victims were blacks, and the great majority of whites involved in slavery were willing participants and beneficiaries of that evil.”

The outrage against The Economist sparked the hashtag “#economistbookreviews.” One person tweeted: “Had Ms Stowe properly described the abode as ‘Uncle Tom’s Mansion,’ so much civil disruption might have been avoided.”

Too bad we don’t know the name of the genius who wrote the article, since like many articles in The Economist, it was unsigned.

Here are some of the tweets slamming The Economist:

Henry Lee McCollum & Leon Brown Convicted in 1983 NC Murder, Freed After DNA Tests

If you think justice is blind, think again. Henry Lee McCollum, 50, and Leon Brown, 46, who spent 30 years on death row for a 1983 murder in North Carolina, were ordered freed by a Robeson County court, after DNA evidence implicated Roscoe Artis, a sexual predator with a history of rape and murder. Superior court judge Douglas B. Sasser vacated their convictions and ordered their release.

The half-brothers, who are mentally-disabled, were convicted of the rape and murder of an 11-year-old girl in rural North Carolina in 1983. The exoneration of the brothers shows how the system treats black men, who can be imprisoned for crimes they did not commit, simply on the basis of false or coerced confessions. Thank God DNA testing is available.

Mr. McCollum was 19, and Mr. Brown was 15, when they were picked up by police in Red Springs, a small town in the southern part of the state, on the night of Sept. 28, 1983. Earlier, the body of Sabrina Buie, who had been raped and suffocated with her underwear, had been discovered in a soybean field.

No physical evidence tied the youths, both African-American, as was the victim, to the crime, but someone had apparently cast suspicion on Mr. McCollum. After five hours of questioning with no lawyer present and with his mother weeping in the hallway, not allowed to see him, Mr. McCollum told a story of how he and three other youths attacked and killed the girl.

“I had never been under this much pressure, with a person hollering at me and threatening me,” Mr. McCollum said in a recent videotaped interview with The News & Observer in Raleigh, N.C. “I just made up a story and gave it to them so they would let me go home.”

After he signed a statement written out in longhand by investigators, he asked, “Can I go home now?” according to an account by his defense lawyers.

Before the night was done, Mr. Brown, told that his half-brother Henry had confessed and facing similar threats that he could be executed if he did not cooperate, also signed a confession. Both of them subsequently recanted at trial, saying their confessions had been coerced. Oddly, the other two men mentioned in Mr. McCollum’s confession were never prosecuted. Source: NY Times

What’s equally shameful is that as recent as 2010, the NY Times reports, Henry Lee McCollum’s booking photograph was used on campaign flyers by the North Carolina Republican Party to accuse a Democrat of being soft on crime, according to the News & Observer. How many more people are sitting on death row, thanks to unscrupulous and dishonest cops and prosecutors? The state of North Carolina should compensate these two men for the 30 years of their lives they lost.

Sweet Briar College Student Confesses to ‘White Only’ and ‘Colored’ Signs

sweet briar college 350x350 Sweet Briar College Student Confesses to White Only and Colored Signs

Sweet Briar College Student Confesses to ‘White Only’ and ‘Colored’ Signs

A student at Sweet Briar College confessed to placing “White Only” and “Colored Only” labels on students doors and on a water cooler on the fourth floor of Meta Glass Hall.

The school’s interim president James Jones Jr. issued a statement on the school’s website:

Sometime between 8 and 10:30 this morning, four labels, made with a label-maker, were affixed to doors and the water cooler on the fourth floor of Meta Glass. As difficult as this is to believe, two of the labels read “White Only,” and two “Colored.” For someone who grew up in the deeply segregated South, those words recall to me a world of racial discrimination, disregard for human dignity, and institutionalized prejudice.

Here’s an excerpt of the email from the student sent to James Jones Jr.:

“While posting these extremely hurtful labels, I had one thing in mind. My mission was to show others that words can still have an extreme impact, and the past still resonates with us all. While moving forward, we can never really shake the past. The past is a part of us and we are a part of the past. While they did not necessarily know this before, we are all equal and nobody deserves to be treated unfairly. I was trying to make a point, but the point ended up “making me”…now everyone has ideas on what type of person that I am. I am none of these things….I am myself, I am caring and kind. I am the last person who would ever intentionally hurt someone else, but most of all, I am sorry!”

Parolee Claude D. Wyman yelled “white power” and brandished a knife, “making several stabbing motions,” at a black man standing in front of a billiards hall in Costa Mesa, Calif.

The OC Weekly reports witnesses say “without provocation, Wyman purposefully shoved his chest against the chest of an African American male adult who happened to be standing in front of the billiards hall. Wyman next reportedly called the male a racial slur and threatened to kill him.”

A Hispanic male was reportedly also targeted by Claude Wyman.

Wyman fled the scene and was later apprehended by police, who found a large folding knife in one of his front pants pockets. He was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, making a terrorist threat, hate crimes, violating parole and a gang enhancement.

Claude D. Wyman, who has a lengthy rap sheet, is currently being held without bail. In 1995, he was sentenced to seven years in state prison after a conviction of attempted murder, assault with a firearm, two criminal gang enhancements, the Orange County Register, reports.
