George Floyd – Black Man Treated Like a Dog by White Policeman in the USA

The FBI is investigating the death of George Floyd, black man who was pinned on the neck by a police officer and later died in custody. Minnesota’s Attorney General Keith Ellison joins The Beat with Ari Melber’s breaking coverage on the latest from the FBI and the protests. While the officers involved have yet to be charged, Ellison argues a “quick arrest” might “make people feel better about justice” it is “important” for investigators to “take the time to make sure that these charges, if they are brought forward, stick.

  • Hal; re. your earlier post, It was one of your good posts overall but I MUST disagree strongly with one aspect of it where you said; “Robert, you went to a school where the most vile and obnoxious of people, Stanton Gittens, was headmaster….”.

    I also went to a School, Harrison College, where Mr. Stanton Gittens was a senior Master. Mr Stanton Gittens, afaik, did not display racist tendencies there but the white English expat Headmaster, John Hammond certainly did. I personally witnessed an incident at HC where Mr Gittens stood up against John Hammond in a matter heavily tinged in racial and Class overtones. Moving to Combermere under Noot must have really changed Mr Gittens, if your assessment of him were to have any merit at all. I think you totally misjudged Mr Gittens.

    “It would seem to me that once again the old colonial choker collar used to train Barbadians has been drawn tight around the neck of our “leaders”. As good Barbadians heel to their masa’s side, the distraction of racially based protest in America has caused some to turn their heads in that direction. Some even started heading in the direction of the distraction, which caused the correction by masa. Our handler’s, to ensure emotional mass solidarity against racism and white supremacy did not cause any Bajan societal introspection, the number of allowed protesters were limited to 10.

    However such a protest would have revolutionary residue. It would have carried the power of pricking the conscience of some, causing a dread introspection of the space we call home. I can safely say that it is the same mentality that prohibited Marcus Garvey from entering Barbados at that time; that sought in this time to violently squash all possible emotional racial backlash from a mass protest, by limiting the protesters to 10.”

    “In theory, however, it is still technically possible for the British Parliament to REPEAL the Barbados Independence Act which granted Her Majesty-in-Council the power to make Barbados’ Independence Order,” the report adds.”

    The above is serious business and should be taken very seriously.

    African leaders need to dismantle and get rid of every piece of colonial law sitting on their statute books and make sure they have their OWN Constitutions. Barbados never had its own Constitution, is still a racist, apartheid slave society, that the population is forced to fund generationally against themselves; and to add insult and disrespect to injury, the Constitution was designed to keep the population in generational poverty to benefit a filthy, racist minority of thieves.

    The Constitution they have was drafted and designed for them in UK using 16th century slave laws and can very well be repealed at any time, it is worthless to the African descended on the island and the fraud leaders who sell out their people at every opportunity are only allowed to make anendments that never benefit the majority Black population who still believe in a sham independence they dont have and is not real.

    That is how they were brainwashed and programmed to remain docile slaves to their own detriment and stagnant futures, this did not happen to them alone.

    So in reality, the African leaders, except Rwanda, who seem to be the only African state to date, that we know of, with leaders who do have the intellectual capacity to see ahead, but we know they PAID very heavily in African BLOOD to learn, understand and accept that that skill exists within them and should be used to benefit their own people.

    If everyone did not learn anything from UKs brutality against the African descended from the Caribbean when they cruelly devised the Windrush scam against the African descended post slavery/emancipation and implemented it in the summer of 1948 to rebuild UK after Hitler’s 1940s bombing and despite the UNs 30 Articles of Human Rights ratified in the winter of 1948 which apparently UK did not believe also applies to the African descended and still don’t; these crimes were devised to last 2 generations ending in misery for many born in the Caribbean and other places before they implemented their scam independence in some islands/countries in the 60s, 70s and 80s; which stiil has many of their Windrush victims from that era suffering and dying in poverty and in horrible conditions after rebuilding the UK, they will never learn.

    If African leaders and African people don’t learn anything from these continous colonial crimes against themselves generationally , they never will. Again, get all colonizers out of Africa, get China and France out of Africa and keep them all out.

    PM ‘must declare Black Lives Matter’
    In the wake of Saturday’s aborted Black Lives Matter demonstration, Prime Minister Mia Mottley should speak out against the injustices facing black people in the US, Pan Africanist Dr Deryck Murray has urged.

    But Dr Murray, the last Director of the Government’s disbanded Commission on Pan-African Affairs, said he believes that the protest, organized by the Caribbean Movement for Peace and Integration, was undermined even before it began.

    In an interview with Barbados TODAY, Dr Murray, the Director of the Centre for Hybrid Studies and a lecturer in Science, History and Culture at the University of the West Indies, said that following the extrajudicial killing of Floyd by a white police officer on May 25, Government should have taken a strong stance and supported the Black Lives Matter movement.

    Dr Murray said: “As a country, we should have responded to what happened in the US and when I say as a country I mean either our Minister of Foreign Affairs or our Prime Minister should have spoken directly to what happened in the same way that several international agencies, the University of the West Indies [and] several governments spoke out against what is seen as ongoing injustice and police brutality in the US of whites against black people.

    “The first response a country with over 95 per cent of its population being black, the first response we should have given should have been from our leadership and so the Prime Minister really should have commented on the situation and expressed Barbados’ concern. This is important because for almost any other ethnic group if an injustice like that happens anywhere in the world you are certain to hear an outcry from either ethic groups from the originating country whether it be China, India or somewhere in Europe, so by this account it should have been heard from the highest level.”

    “I think the Government of Barbados, the [Attorney General] and the police should do whatever is necessary to allow as many people as possible to protest peacefully and to let the United States know through its Embassy and the media that what is happening has been happening for too long and is not acceptable.”

    Raul Castro to lead Cuba’s Communist Party until 2021

    Raul Castro said Thursday that he expected his successor Miguel Diaz-Canel to serve two five-year terms as Cuban president, and eventually take his place as head of the Communist Party when he retires from the position in 2021.

    ADVERTISING

    It was the first time Castro laid out a clear vision for the nation’s power structure after his retirement or death, a vision in which Diaz-Canel is the Castro family’s true successor as Cuban leader.

    Fidel Castro’s brother left the presidency Thursday after 12 years in office when the National Assembly approved 57-year-old Diaz-Canel as his successor.

    In a half-hour speech, Diaz-Canel told the nation that Castro, 86, would remain the country’s ultimate authority as head of the Communist Party.

    WHILST YOU TWO IDIOTS HAVE YOUR HEADS FAR UP TRUMPS ASS WHERE YOU CAN NO LONGER RECOGNIZE REALITY AND BLAME BLACKS FOR EVERYTHING THE BELOW INFORMATION SHOULD BE A WAKEUP CALL FOR YOUR NONSENSE.

    IT WAS A WHITE WOMAN WHO BURNED THE WENDY’S FAST FOOD AFTER THE BLACK MAN WAS MURDERED BY THE ATLANTA POLICE AND NOT THE BLACK PROTESTERS AS YOU IDIOTS LIKE TO ALLEGE.

    Arrest warrant issued for woman who allegedly set Wendy’s in Atlanta on fire

    An arrest warrant was issued on Saturday by Atlanta fire officials for a 29-year-old woman accused of setting fire to a Wendy’s restaurant hours after Rayshard Brooks was seen on surveillance video fatally shot by a police officer.

    Natalie White was charged with first-degree arson by Atlanta Fire Rescue Department Fire Investigators for torching the Wendy’s on University Avenue on June 13.

    The fast-food restaurant was set on fire after 27-year-old Brooks was shot in the back by former Atlanta police officer Garrett Rolfe. The shooting was captured on cameras from the police dash camera, body cameras, bystanders and the restaurant’s surveillance camera.

    Protests erupted at the Wendy’s and at some point White allegedly set fire to the building.

    The inside of the brick property was destroyed. “This is an ongoing investigation and additional arrests are possible,” fire officials said.

    Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of White or anyone who has information related to this crime is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS or the Arson Tip Line at 1-800-282-5804.

    SECONDLY I LEARNED THIS WEEK THAT THE BLACK WALL STREET IN TULSA OKALOMA WHERE THERE HAD BEEN MANY SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSES BLACK OWNED WAS NOT BURNED TO THE GROUND BY BLACK PROTESTERS YEARS AGO THE AREA WAS BURNED DOWN BY WHITES.

    The Tulsa race massacre (also called the Tulsa race riot, the Greenwood Massacre, or the Black Wall Street Massacre)[9][10][11][12][13][14] took place on May 31 and June 1, 1921, when mobs of white residents attacked black residents and businesses of the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma.[1] It has been called “the single worst incident of racial violence in American history.”[15] The attack, carried out on the ground and from private aircraft, destroyed more than 35 square blocks of the district—at that time the wealthiest black community in the United States, known as “Black Wall Street”.

    More than 800 people were admitted to hospitals and as many as 6,000 black residents were interned at large facilities, many for several days.[16][17] The Oklahoma Bureau of Vital Statistics officially recorded 36 dead. A 2001 state commission examination of events was able to confirm 36 dead, 26 black and 10 white, based on contemporary autopsy reports, death certificates and other records.[1]:114 The commission gave overall estimates from 75–100 to 150–300 dead.[1]:13, 23

    The massacre began over Memorial Day weekend after 19-year-old Dick Rowland, a black shoeshiner, was accused of assaulting Sarah Page, the 17-year-old white elevator operator of the nearby Drexel Building. He was taken into custody. After the arrest, rumors spread through the city that Dick Rowland was to be lynched. Upon hearing reports that a mob of hundreds of white men had gathered around the jail where Dick Rowland was being kept, a group of 75 black men, some of whom were armed, arrived at the jail with the intention of helping to ensure Dick Rowland would not be lynched. The sheriff persuaded the group of black men to leave the jail, assuring them that he had the situation under control. As the group of black men was leaving the premises, complying with the sheriff’s request, a member of the mob of white men attempted to disarm one of the black men. A shot was fired, and then according to the reports of the sheriff, “all hell broke loose”. At the end of the firefight, 12 people were killed: 10 white and 2 black.[18] As news of these deaths spread throughout the city, mob violence exploded.[2] White rioters rampaged through the black neighborhood that night and morning killing men and burning and looting stores and homes, and only around noon the next day did Oklahoma National Guard troops manage to get control of the situation by declaring martial law. About 10,000 black people were left homeless, and property damage amounted to more than $1.5 million in real estate and $750,000 in personal property (equivalent to $32.25 million in 2019). Their property was never recovered nor were they compensated for it.

    Many survivors left Tulsa, while black and white residents who stayed in the city were silent for decades about the terror, violence, and losses of the event. The massacre was largely omitted from local, state, and national histories.

  • It’s like a bunch of squirrels going at it in the mind, the original person no longer able to understand things for themselves. Seen it many a time. Sad. Hope for the best.

    You are absolutely right. Sadly, Barbados has so much to offer, but there is a stubbornness, a reluctance to listen to reasoned arguments and proposals.
    I have worked with global leaders, and instinctively always measure them against the potential of Barbadians, and I can say, hand on heart, we have nothing to worry about. Our battle is not with those people, but with ourselves.
    I once spent an entire evening with a senior Barbadian lawyer, a QC, on a visit to London and he spent the entire evening trying to impress how good a lawyer he was. Sadly, until then I thought he was one of the outstanding lawyers in the English-speaking world of his generation. He left me convinced of his insecurity.
    @Crusoe, there are two good books to read*: Medical Apartheid, and The Truth About the Drug Companies. Another good book is ADHD Nation.
    As our politicians play silly games, and the masses engage in juvenile party politics, the time to reverse this steady decline is drifting away. Time is short.
