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.

    Lawson…i do believe i came and met you on BU or you came shortly after….but how many times have i EXPRESSED in various moods…that the NEGRO sell outs in the two toxic governments have for DECADES deliberately and maliciously kept the island that way and the people in abject POVERTY to enrich themselves, the minority tiefing racist descendent rejects of UK and every riffraff lowlife white criminal out of Canada, remember Del Mastros, UK, US and anywhere a white or other minority TIEF can be found to help them rip off the people and keep them oppressed and in GENERATIONAL POVERTY…

    something like what UK rejects in Canada have repeatedly done to the indigenous natives……and you STILL cannot see the similarities…..the only difference is that Canada’s natives are not in the majority…they are a minority population still in their own country…

    @DavidBU from what i understand and supported by actions thus far, The commissioner did what he can and ought to which is to fire all four officers. It is the :safest option” right now. The commissioner is letting the states and federal attorneys “do their job”, which is to do the investigations, develop an irrefutable case, press charges and order the arrest of all four officers. Derek Chavin’s charges are more “clear cut” as supported by all the video circulating.
    The commissioner is removing himself and the force from any accusation of prejudice which COULD get him fired and let the 4 officers “off”. He is communicating to the public as BEST he can without prejudicing any case against the 4 officers.
    The biggest PROBLEM is finding George Floyd’s CAUSE of DEATH which affects what charges can be placed against the other 3 officers and is causing the delay. As someone said a pathologist, via a second autopsy and being an expert, MUST and will MOST LIKELY find that cause of death. The other officers will MOST LIKELY be charged irregardless of the second autopsy results though.

    Go and ask one of your First Nations or Inuit friends whether Canada is a profoundly racist society or not. You do have First Nations and/or Inuit friends don’t you? Even racists have a few tokens. If you don’t have any First Nations or Inuit friends to ask, perhaps you can educate yourself by reading.

    “The Canadian government, through the Indian Act of 1876 and subsequent
    legislation and treaties, introduced institutionalized racism in the relationship
    between Canada and its Aboriginal Peoples that continues to flourish today.”
    (Henry, Tator, Mattis & Rees. (1995).

    “In 1793 Britain gave legal protection to slavery by an Imperial Act that permitted
    the entry into Canada of “Negroes, household furniture, utensils of husbandry or
    clothing.” To some United Empire Loyalists who had already brought their
    slaves to Canada the act must have seemed little more than formal recognition
    of an established practice.” (Thomson, 1979).

    “À quelle conclusion peut-on arriver quand une loi accorde le droit d’amener son
    épouse et ses enfants aux immigrants européens, sud-américains et américains
    résidant au pays (Décret 695) et limite la jouissance de ce même droit par les
    immigrants chinois et asiatiques à ceux détenant la citoyenneté canadienne
    (Décret 2115)?” (A.R. Mosher, président du Canadian Congress of Labour
    adresse un comité du Sénat examinant des questions relatives à l’immigration
    dans, Helly, 1987)

    “To ensure Anglo-Saxon supremacy, legislation was enacted to control the
    economic and social mobility of South Asians and to prevent more from coming.
    Even though citizens of India were British subjects, British Columbia in 1908
    disenfranchised them” (Henry, Tator, Mattis & Rees, 1995).

    I am not making this personal, but want to get the fact s. You were born in the UK; at what age did you leave the UK? You lived in Barbados, and went to Kolij, so, presumably you left at your late teens early 20s, is that right? You lived 40+ years in Canada, putting you in your 60s. How long have you been back in Barbados?
    If you went to Kolij in the 1970s, as you have previously claimed, then you cannot be aged over 70s. And what gave you this great love for Canada after living there 40+ years? Be specific? And what makes you think because you were born in the UK and are entitled to a UK passport that you are British?
    Aren’t you being caught out by your exuberance? Your anger and black militancy may impress some, but a man who talked about relaxing on an old schooner with Charles Herbert, his old Kolij mate, cannot then come on and talk about his black pride and militancy. You were prepared to suspend due process on the basis of being at school with a white plantation boy. Make up your mind.

    I am an open book.

    Born in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1956. Lived in Barbados from the time I was a toddler until 1975. Lived in Canada with brief sojourns in the USA until 1999. Lived in Barbados for a year 1999 to 2000. Returned to Canada. Returned to Barbados to live permanently in 2017.

    I love Canada a great deal because it is a stunningly beautiful place. The last decade or so that I spent there was living on a beautiful lakeside acreage covered in 90 ft fir and spruce trees with a little sailboat at my dock. Wildlife all around: beavers, otters, black bears, moose, eagles, osprey, ravens, trout, loons ducks, geese… What’s not to love? It was a paradise only 20 minutes drive from work.

    I think I am entitled to UK passport because I applied for one and it was issued to me.

    Why can’t I enjoy a sail on an old wooden ketch (not a schooner) which is the last wooden sailboat built by Black boatwrights in Barbados. Does the fact that it is owned by rich White men obligate me to no longer be a Black man myself?

    You are COMPLETELY wrong that I wanted “to suspend due process” in the Charles Herbert case. I NEVER said or implied that he should not be arrested and face due process. He was arrested and the court system dealt with his case. What I DID say was that I was sceptical of the evidence when it was first presented on blogs. What I DID say was that it was hard for me to bel;ieve that Charles Herbert would be that stupid for so little money. Then I went digging because I had been invited to help crew the vessel because they knew that I love old wooden sailboats and that I’m a competent sailor. That’s when I was made privy to evidence, by a third party, which has not yet been presented in open court. Then I DID say was that I was in possession of evidence which proved that he was not guilty in this case. Go back and read the entire blog word by word.

    My mind is always open to the evidence, even when it does not support my opinions. If the evidence contradicts my opinions, then my opinions evolve to conform with the evidence. I call it learning. It is my second favorite activity in life.

    Does this conclude the inquisition??

    Explain how you could talk about black pride and married a WHITE WOMAN?

    That is why I would always say there ain’t no Barbados Condition, it is a black man condition. Black people where ever they come from does behave the same way. Wunnuh talking bout house negroes and uncle toms. Picture this, a black man leaves a Caribbean island (the plantation) to go and live in England (the white massa house) and work for the white man. He now mixing with white people and feeling proud. When he marry a white woman, wuh loss, he feel he arrive.

    Now all of a sudden everything pun the plantation bad. Caribbean islands are failed states and nothing works. The universities in the Caribbean ain’t no good. But the schools in the white man land better. They give him the ability to think, because he ain’t learn by rote. But they give him the ability to think like the white man and he feel that he superior and got the authority to call black people back home silly appallingly ignorant buffoons, wild barking dogs, billy goats, jungle savages and mealy mouth keyboard warriors that learn by rote.

    Now this ain’t the same thing wunnuh here talking bout how white people feel bout we and why they does treat we bad? Wunnuh know that (1) white people don’t feel that we intelligent, (2) duh always want to compare we with animals (3) duh think we are savages that should be in the jungle. Just check them old UK movies that got we stereotyped as buffoons and savages.

    I hope wunnuh see where I coming from. Wunnuh really think it is coincidental that that DOG, the UK journalist, does call we buffoons and savages that should be in the jungle? He learn all of that in England. I remember him telling Greene that if he returns to Barbados to be careful of the artisans that will rob him. This is how he feels about us.

    Those fellows does come and want to tell you bout all the things they do for black people. But I does dismiss all of that as being hypocritical, because they are SELL OUTS……they think they are superior because they live in the white man world and marry white women.

    Why do you think he give himself the self appointed God given right to determine who opinion on BU is right or wrong and that he is superior so his opinions are always right?

    You are hilarious. I completely agree that “Canada is one of the best countries in the world.” It is also deeply racist. The two facts coexist even if your mind cannot compass them.

    My maternal grandmother and grandfather emigrated to Toronto in the early part of the 20th century… that is how I come to be born Canadian despite being born in the UK and growing up in Barbados. Interesting fact: that grandmother was White and grandfather Black. They emigrated to Canada because Barbados of that era was so racist and sexist that although White men screwed Black women all the time, the community could not deal with a White woman marrying a Black man. So if your own Bajan lineage includes the Wards or Goodings, It is likely that we are distant cousins through my grandmother.

    Greene you are an ass licking yardfowl buffoon. Not a PIP out of you when that pompous idiot come here with his condescending attitude, but you come now talking shyte bout bullocks. Some of you here on BU are so hypocritical it’s a pray.

    I did do very well in Canada, as did my sister. My brother’s career has been in the USA, where he is extremely successful. There is no big secret to it… half of it is good luck and the other half is being twice as good at what you do than the racists around you are.

    I illustrate what it looks like from my own experience. In 2003 I took the position of Executive Director of a dysfunctional arts organization that had gone through 7 chief executives in the previous 9 years and was on the brink of insolvency. I turned the organization around, grew its budget by 100% in real dollar terms, and pioneered innovative programmes which led the world in our field and won us national awards. I resigned in 2015 and the board hired a very talented White woman, who I had mentored for 5 years, as my replacement. When I left, my staff let me know how much they appreciated what I had accomplished, but the community at large barely noticed. When my successor was hired away a couple of weeks ago the community exploded in an orgy of pleading with her to stay and the newspapers published article after article about everything she had achieved: EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM were things that the organization had achieved before she took the position in 2015.

    Racism is not simply conscious hatred, it is much bigger and more complex than that.

    Racism is a complex system of dynamic levers and assumptions set up generations ago that continues to work on behalf of White people at everyone else’s expense. That Is why I’m always dragging you back 14 generations to pay attention to the 1661 Act for the Better Ordering and Governing of Negroes.

    It does not matter whether White people know about it, like it, or are aware of it in any way. Racism is an insidious cultural disease which does not care whether you, as a White person, like Black people or not, it still infects how you deal with people who do not look like you. It still enables you to deny that Canada is racist and believe that you are correct even after every level of the court system up to and including the Supreme Court of Canada has acknowledged that it has been proven according to the most stringent standards of law that Canada is indeed racist.

    Yes, racism sometimes looks like hatred, but that is only one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. Entitlement is another. Discomfort is another. Willful blindness is another.

    It is commonplace to say that nobody is born racist, but racism is a powerful cultural environment that you are born into as surely as you are born into the atmosphere and take your first breath. It is an infection that you need to devote effort to filtering out of your life and your interactions with your fellow human beings.

    I do not care what color skin you have, unless you are consciously being anti-racist, unless you are putting thought and effort into becoming self aware of the manner that racist assumptions and attitudes are infecting your interactions with others, then you are going to be racist. It is not enough to simply not hate. Hate is only the tip of the iceberg… the most damaging parts of racism lie below the waterline.

  • Anti-Trump mayors and governors are done enforcing the lockdown – at least for rioters

    When Americans tried to venture out in public to reopen businesses, liberal governors and mayors threatened them with the full force and power of the law.

    When rioters ventured out to burn buildings and assault officers, those same mayors and governors didn’t lift and finger to stop them. Worse, they enabled them.

    If you’re a barber, salon owner, or restaurant owner, you could be fined or imprisoned under lockdown rules. But if you want to burn a barbershop, salon or restaurant, you’ll probably get away with it.

    The coronavirus lockdown is seemingly down and out, as many Democrats in charge of big cities — including several who once insisted on strict quarantine measures — line up to champion the nationwide mass demonstrations over the in-custody death of George Floyd, sans social distancing.

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo lashed out at protesters calling to reopen the state earlier this month, saying at a news conference, “you have no right to jeopardize my health … and my children’s health and your children’s health.” Cuomo’s directives have been enforced throughout the state: A New York City tanning salon owner told Fox News he was fined $1,000 for reopening briefly last week, calling the situation “insane” and saying he already was “broke.”

    On Friday, though, Cuomo said he “stands” with those defying stay-at-home orders: “Nobody is sanctioning the arson, and the thuggery and the burglaries, but the protesters and the anger and the fear and the frustration? Yes. Yes, and the demand is for justice.”

    There you have it – Cuomo is “sanctioning” the gathering of large bodies of people in the midst of a pandemic.

    It’s not just Cuomo – Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey is guilty of the same:

    Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, meanwhile, had warned that in-person worship services would be a “public-health disaster,” disregarding constituents’ concerns that he was violating their First Amendment rights. Now, his administration has been distributing masks to rioters, even though public gatherings of 10 or more are still ostensibly banned. Frey also allowed a police station to burn, saying it was necessary to protect police and rioters.

    It’s just more evidence that the elites in this country believe that the law shouldn’t apply to them. These protests aren’t about justice, at least not for those who disagree with the ruling class.

    Floyd, who Santamaria called a “great guy” known for his big smile, often worked as an extra security guard on Tuesdays when the club held popular “urban” music nights. Chauvin served as an off-duty police officer for the club for almost 17 years.

    “I wouldn’t characterize them as knowing each other,” Santamaria told CNN’s Josh Campbell in an interview. “We did all work together at the club at different points of time, certainly on Tuesday nights on and off. We were all working on the same team.”

    Santamaria added, “We all worked together certain nights and they would have crossed paths.”
