World reacts to the conflict in Gaza

The US and UK are disgusting, Germany’s not so hot… Ireland… eh.  But Seriously.  Israel has Iron dome.  Those rockets from Gaza barely do damage.  88 dead and 600 injured, on the other hand, in people kept trapped under seige by a genocidal government, the US and UK don’t care about.

Detroit activists call for UN help as city shuts off water for thousands

Detroit has too much of some things – stray dogs, abandoned houses – and not enough of others, such as residents who pay their water bills.
The latest sign of Detroit’s decline came from the city’s water department, when it said in March it would begin shutting off water for up to 3,000 homes and businesses a week in an attempt to stop the utility from sliding even further into debt.
The announcement sparked outrage among activists groups, who say the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) is going after the city’s most vulnerable citizens to shore up its bottom line.

I look white, so I find that white people who don’t know who I am tend to be very racist around me, if they want to be. They never know, and I’m very sensitive to this. When I hear something racist, it makes me cringe. It hurts.”

Look this over.  It clearly demonstrates that the US is a nation of overwhelmingly incompetent shits.

What does it take to be president? We asked Americans about 16 different traits and how it affects support for a candidate.

"

In an interview aired Monday where he expressed sorrow for recorded racist remarks that earned him a lifetime NBA ban, Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling was anything but apologetic toward Magic Johnson, one of the men mentioned in the recording, repeatedly disparaging Johnson’s HIV-positive status, dismissing his work in charity and business and saying he’s not a proper role model for children.

"He’s got AIDS!" Sterling said loudly at one point, cutting off CNN’S Anderson Cooper as the interviewer attempted to cite Johnson’s accomplishments after Sterling asked, "What has he done, big Magic Johnson, what has he done?"

"He acts so holy," Sterling said. "He made love to every girl in every city in America, and he had AIDS, and when he had those AIDS, I went to my synagogue and I prayed for him, I hope he could live and be well. I didn’t criticize him. I could have. Is he an example for children?"

Fact: 5.3 million African American men are denied the right to vote based on a past felony conviction.
That means more than 13% (39 mil) of the general African American population and 28% of the male African American population (18.5 mil) are prohibited from voting.
—  Ten Facts About The Racist Criminal Justice System
Felony Disenfranchisement is highest in the former slave states and states with a history of civil rights violations like Florida and North Carolina. Today’s red states—particularly in the bible belt—where the Republican voting base is strongest, appear to have vested racist and political interests in permanently separating Black people from their right to vote.

CCTV catches pigs planting crack in NYC black man’s store

sancophaleague:

Donald Andrews Jr. A Black man  and Business Owner from New York was cleared just last April After being Arrested on Drugs Charges in Scotia, New York.    Police were “suspicious” of Donald Andrews Jr.’s store, which sells incense and smoking paraphernalia, and sent undercover informants several times in March. In one of the informants visits he is seen on Andrews hidden camera planting Crack Cocaine on the counter in Andrews Store.

Andrews was arrested in April  2013 and cleared only after he asked a Grand Jury to watch the surveillance footage from his store. The informant used a cellphone photo he took of the planted drugs as evidence that Andrews was dealing, leading to his arrest.

*YES THIS IS FUCKING REAL LOOK IT UP*

The police claim that the informant has now “fled” and they haven’t found his whereabouts. The sheriff “claims” his investigators didn’t purposely framed Andrews and have the “informant” out to be some rogue agent.

FYI this same “informant” has lead to seven other drug-related arrests the Report says. 

Sounds like a Movie right? But yall still out here calling people “conspiracy theorists”. 

Andrews is now in the process of suing NYPD.

Young Black Gays in Atlanta Getting HIV at Breakneck Pace
A staggering 12% of young gay black men in Atlanta are contracting HIV each year, an incidence rate exceeding that of almost all other previously recorded figures in the world’s wealthier nations. At this rate, a sexually active black man who becomes sexually active at age 18 has a 60% chance of becoming HIV positive by the time he hits 30.

Oh.  Perhaps this has to do with FAILED FUCKING EDUCATION AND SOCIAL SUPPORT STRUCTURES.  #FuckCapitalism

Venezuela: Amnesty lets down human rights defenders | Green Left Weekly

amodernmanifesto:

In a recent article, Amnesty International accused the Venezuelan government of a “witch hunt” when a right-wing opposition mayor Daniel Ceballos was arrested.

However, Amnesty has yet to use such strong language against the five weeks of human rights violations people in Venezuela have suffered at the hands of violent opposition sectors. The “witch hunt” term demonises the people’s right to bring such criminals to justice.

In its March 20 statement, “Venezuela: Arrest of local mayor signals potential ‘witch hunt’”, Amnesty says Ceballos, mayor of San Cristobal, capital of Tachira state on the Colombian border, was arrested for his “alleged involvement in anti-government protests … authorities in Venezuela seem to be setting the scene for a witch hunt against opposition leaders”.

It is important to counter the horrendous distortions contained in this article, because the private media will quote its positions as fact. Articles like this embolden the criminals and coup participants who are among opposition leaders. It also makes it harder for those of us who have suffered from opposition violence to demand arrests, and authorities to carry them out.
