White Nationalists Rally Escorted And Protected Reveal Not All Lives Matter

Angry counterprotesters far outnumbered the small band of far-right demonstrators who turned out in Washington, and then quickly dispersed, on the anniversary of the violent Charlottesville rally.

At the same time, some saw in the wall-to-wall media coverage a kind of public relations victory for the far right. “They are getting international coverage and profiles, and the bottom line is that exposure equals importance,” said Brian H. Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino.

The white supremacist rally police escort and barricade protection were profoundly clear messages to the country and communities of color. One message was cops serve and protect white supremacy unlike non-white communities. Another message was supportive coverage by traditional media.

Contrast the police protection received by white supremacists last week to the lack of protection and brutality meted out members of Black Lives Matter, a movement to increase awareness and end discriminatory law enforcement.

Reportedly members of Black Lives Matter, many identified as Black Identity Extremists by the FBI, are harassed, spied upon and trolled by the US government. Why aren’t their rights protected?

What I got from the NYT coverage was unfiltered dissemination of white supremacist beliefs. There was little balance in the article as it legitmized their beliefs.

Over the last few years, there have been larger marches by black groups that didn’t get traditional media coverage let alone coverage of a few dozen black people marching.

There is no genocide of white people. White supremacists exploit race groups to spread fear among white people. At the heart of white supremacy is the belief in white superiority and the inferiority of other races particularly those of color. It denies that structural racism led to white patriarchy, not genetic superiority or white values, morality or ethics.

Whites lives have always mattered. Why do many whites who say All Lives Matter can’t admit Black Lives Matter?

Now the Trump administration wants to limit citizenship for legal immigrants

Now the Trump administration wants to limit citizenship for legal immigrants
— Read on www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna897931

“Details of the rulemaking proposal are still being finalized, but based on a recent draft seen last week and described to NBC News, immigrants living legally in the U.S. who have ever used or whose household members have ever used Obamacare, children’s health insurance, food stamps and other benefits could be hindered from obtaining legal status in the U.S.

Immigration lawyers and advocates and public health researchers say it would be the biggest change to the legal immigration system in decades and estimate that more than 20 million immigrants could be affected. They say it would fall particularly hard on immigrants working jobs that don’t pay enough to support their families.”

Israeli Massacres on Palestinians

If the Israelis are victims in this one-sided war with the Palestinians then the Nazis were victims in WWII, don’t you think? Shame on the Israelis and shame on Americans for letting our government use tax dollars to fund Israeli atrocities and crimes against humanity.

Israeli Crimes: Details and numbers of the zionist terrorism activities

The Nobel Prize of Literature Jose Saramago compares the suffering of the Palestinians under Israeli occupation as the same suffering of the jews in the Nazi boot camps.

“The repression from Israel is the worst form of Apartheid. Nobody has the faintest idea of what is going on here, even the best informed people. Everything is in pieces, the land is destroyed and nothing else may be planted. All this smells like a boot camp, like Auschwitz. The israeli have turned into NAZI JEWS” , he declared after a visit to Palestina in March, 2002.

He is correct. Let us see why:
Although the image that Israel distributes about herself is that of an oppressed nation, it is with heavy hearts that we present these crimes that stand for themselves for the brutality of the Israeli Army and the heartlessness…

NEVER FORGET: America’s Terrorism Of Communities of Color

FailureToListen.com wants Communities of Color to NEVER FORGET!  #BlackVotersMatter and #BlackLivesMatter

To that end, a gallery of images on police brutality, slavery, and torture will serve as reminders of our fight for justice. Eventually, I hope to put the images and videos on a decentralized public blockchain for history.

Mid-term elections are fast approaching. Communities of color will be deluged with politicians from both sides scaring you to vote for them. Already Trump found a group of black pastors willing to sell their souls and congregation to him. Don’t trust them, and they do not speak the word of the Lord if they take orders from the devil.

As usual, the Democrats will take black voters for granted, promising us nothing but expecting loyalty and our votes. They will use black celebrities to corral our votes.

What has the Democratic party done to deserve the loyalty of communities of color over the last several decades? Democrat sponsored legislation supporting a war on drugs and mass incarceration have destroyed families of color. Liberal Democrat supported media portray black men as super predators. To make matters worse, Democrats profit from private prisons and the mass incarceration of people of color.

Black lives do not matter to either party but #BlackVotersMatter tremendously. It’s time we use our votes to build our communities. We need candidates who will hold police and white all accountable for their racist crimes. Vote for candidates who prioritize issues of inclusivity or issues that are relevant to communities of color.

To end police brutality and reduce mass incarceration, society needs laws that make it criminal and also shameful, unethical and inhumane for any system to produce those outcomes.  The criminal justice system in its current state rewards racial profiling and police brutality.   Every time an innocent person or a suspect of a misdemeanor dies or winds up imprisoned then dead, that death often deemed justified, means financial gain to the US prison-industrial complex.  It’s a complex composed of different arms of a system that feeds on taxpayers and the bodies of prisoners through mass incarceration. The more prisoners, the more profit for everyone who is part of the prison-industrial-judicial complex.

Also, the courtroom, a significant portal of entry into that complex is exceptionally biased so much so that cases involving people of color result in a culture that is unsympathetic and hostile to the majority of innocent people of color.

The Democrats’ use of healthcare will sway voters since the GOP are bent on repealing the ACA. There is another issue that is emblematic of Trump and his supporters. The issue is racism, in particular, structural racism and it is relevant to communities of color.

The industrial-prison-judicial complex is an example of structural racism that is destroying communities of color. It’s executing a slow genocide by stripping people of color of human rights then using their bodies for profit,  crimes, experiments, and sexual exploitation.

If Democrats want the Black vote or the Latino vote or POC  vote, let them make our children’s lives and safety a priority and a major party theme this midterm election.

In addition, here is an incomplete list of action steps that can cut police brutality and incarceration rates.

  1. End the use of excessive or lethal force at traffic stops and on 911 calls for help
  2. Mandatory drug testing after cops harm or kill a suspect
  3. Mandatory body cam. A fine and temporary suspension without pay if body cam was off during an incident of excessive use of force.
  4. All suspensions will be without pay
  5. Psychological screening of all police on hiring, biannual routine testing and after use of excessive force.
  6. People who call the police because a person is black or an immigrant will be fined and a clear path to civil suit available.
  7. All contractors hired to support the prison-industrial-judicial complex will be held accountable for poor outcomes to prisoners under their responsibility.
  8. Mandatory reports of all deaths and injuries while in police custody or imprisoned.
