From the Washington Post:

Minn. officer acquitted of manslaughter for shooting Philando Castile during traffic stop

By Mark Berman June 16 at 6:00 PM

The Minnesota police officer who fatally shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop was acquitted on all charges by a jury Friday, a decision that came nearly a year after the encounter was partially streamed online before a rapt nation in the midst of a painful reckoning over shootings by law enforcement.

As I wrote in Taki’s Magazine last July after President Obama’s response to the shooting of poor Mr. Castile helped provoke the BLM massacre in Dallas of five cops that led me to say to myself for the first time, “So Donald Trump will be President:”

Why do the human sciences record pervasive behavioral differences among racial groups, such as in violent-crime rates?

One explanation is that these disparities originate in complex interactions between nature and nurture.

But, of course, only dangerous extremists hold that theory.

The much more respectable sentiment is that statistical differences among the races are the fault of bad white people, such as George Zimmerman and Minnesota policeman Jeronimo Yanez.

Last week, on his way to Warsaw on Air Force One, President Barack Obama was looking at social media. According to The New York Times, he alerted his press secretary that:

He had decided to make a statement himself as soon as they landed, and had told his aides to collect statistics demonstrating racial bias in the criminal justice system.

Now, you might think that’s putting the cart before the horse. Perhaps the administration should objectively evaluate the evidence first, rather than order its media flacks to dredge up some data justifying the president’s prejudices?

But that would be wrong. Everybody knows that culture or evolution can’t have anything to do with hereditary racial differences in performance. If you even consider those possibilities, you must be one of the bad white people you’ve been warned about. …

Yet profiling blacks as tending to be more threatening than whites (not to mention Hispanics or Asians) is the worst offense imaginable under today’s ruling ideology. For instance, the day after the Dallas antiwhite atrocity, the first two policy responses that Hillary Clinton recommended in an interview with Wolf Blitzer were: “National guidelines for police about the use of force” and “We need to look more into implicit bias.”

From the New York Times last year on white policeman Jeranimo Yanez’s shooting of Mr. Castile:

Death in Black and White
Michael Eric Dyson JULY 7, 2016

We, black America, are a nation of nearly 40 million souls inside a nation of more than 320 million people. And I fear now that it is clearer than ever that you, white America, will always struggle to understand us. …

We close a week of violence that witnessed the tragic deaths of two black men — Alton B. Sterling and Philando Castile — at the hands of the police with a terrible attack in Dallas against police officers, whose names we’re just beginning to learn. …

A nonviolent protest was hijacked by violence and so, too, was the debate about the legitimate grievances that black Americans face. The acts of the gunman in Dallas must be condemned. However, he has nothing to do with the difficult truths we must address if we are to make real racial progress, and the reckoning includes being honest about how black grievance has been ignored, dismissed or discounted.

In the wake of these deaths and the protests surrounding them, you, white America, say that black folks kill each other every day without a mumbling word while we thunderously protest a few cops, usually but not always white, who shoot to death black people who you deem to be mostly “thugs.”

… It is not best understood as black-on-black crime; rather, it is neighbor-to-neighbor carnage. If their neighbors were white, they’d get no exemption from the crime that plagues human beings who happen to be black. If you want interracial killing, you have to have interracial communities.

… At birth, you are given a pair of binoculars that see black life from a distance, never with the texture of intimacy. Those binoculars are privilege; they are status, regardless of your class. In fact the greatest privilege that exists is for white folk to get stopped by a cop and not end up dead when the encounter is over.

Those binoculars are also stories, bad stories, biased stories, harmful stories, about how black people are lazy, or dumb, or slick, or immoral, people who can’t be helped by the best schools or even God himself. These beliefs don’t make it into contemporary books, or into most classrooms. But they are passed down, informally, from one white mind to the next. …

So you demand the Supreme Court give you back what was taken from you: more space in college classrooms that you dominate; better access to jobs in fire departments and police forces that you control. All the while your resentment builds, and your slow hate gathers steam. Your whiteness has become a burden too heavy for you to carry, so you outsource it to a vile political figure who amplifies your most detestable private thoughts.

Whiteness is blindness. …

You hold an entire population of Muslims accountable for the evil acts of a few. …

Yet black people will continue to die at the hands of cops as long as we deny that whiteness can be more important in explaining those cops’ behavior than anything else.

You cannot know how we secretly curse the cowardice of whites who know what I write is true, but dare not say it. Neither will your smug insistence that you are different — not like that ocean of unenlightened whites — satisfy us any longer. …

You do not know that after we get angry with you, we get even angrier with ourselves, because we don’t know how to make you stop, or how to make you care enough to stop those who pull the triggers. …

We feel powerless to keep you from killing black people in front of their loved ones. We feel powerless to keep you from shooting hate inside our muscles with well-choreographed white rage.

    Southeast Texas woman witnesses shooting deaths of daughter, unborn granddaughter

    A Southeast Texas mother is stunned after her 19-year-old pregnant daughter was shot and killed before her eyes during a robbery...

    "She kept saying no, please, please don't, no. And I jerked her back and he opened the door and shot at her twice," Morris said.

    She says she doesn't know how she wasn't hit as she ran for help with the man shooting at her as she fled.

    Morris explains the suspects didn't ask for or say anything before just firing the gun at them.

    "How could someone do that to someone?" she asks.

    "if they wanted anything I would have given it to them except my baby," Morris said.

    After police arrived Kera was taken to Christus St. Elizabeth Hospital where doctors tried to save the baby but it was too late.

    Morris not only lost her daughter but lost her granddaughter when Kyndal Jae Teel died shortly after she was delivered.


    The murder suspects who shot those bullets of hate into those White female bodies are of course ....black.

  2. Admittedly official race-based statistics can be a double-edged sword, but it’s unlikely race relations would be much different without them. Most people base their opinions on what they see with their eyes, not academic statistics that only a small percentage of people bother to read.

    The French don’t keep race-based statistics (or at least not to the same extent as the US) yet they have just as big a problem with racial and ethnic conflict.

  6. Philando had his gun sitting on his lap, partially uncovered, when Officer Yanez got to the driver’s window. Officer Yanez drew his weapon and told Philando not to move. Philando did move, and was (quite properly) shot dead by Officer Yanez. Pictures of the scene, taken shortly after the removal of Philando from his car and the scene by medical personnel, show Philando’s gun lying on the pavement, just outside of the driver’s door. For those who do not recall, Officer Yanez had stopped the car because Philando bore a striking resemblance to one of two armed men who had robbed a nearby convenience store, just days before, for which a police bulletin, with photographs, had just been released to members of the local police force. Among the items stolen was a stash of menthol cigarettes. By an odd coincidence, Philando’s car, at the time of his death, contained that same brand of cigarettes.

    The black guy was probably scared too and made a mistake. Low IQ people are prone to messing up and now he is dead. I am still bothered by the whole situation.
    , @Chris Mallory
    American citizens have the right to keep and BEAR arms. A weapon in the possession of a citizen should not give an armed government thug any reason to start firing. There was no threat in this instance from the citizen to the government thug. There was a threat from the government thug to the citizen.

    The rights of Americans are more important than "officer safety". Officer safety should be the last consideration in any encounter between a citizen and a government thug.
  7. More News from the SJW front:

    Elizabeth Banks calls out Spielberg for not having enough female leads…..But then gets accused of the sin of White Feminism:

    Yesterday, I wrote about Elizabeth Banks’ comments on Steven Spielberg’s poor track record of women’s representation. Specifically, I used the words “those correcting her are missing the point.” I used those words because at the time, the only people I saw correcting her were major outlets and die-hard Spielberg fans (almost all white and male), using her mistake to invalidate her larger point about the importance of representation. But there was another conversation going on that, at the time, I hadn’t yet heard.

    Banks said that Steven Spielberg had never directed a movie with a woman lead. In saying that, she was ignoring the existence of The Color Purple, an iconic, landmark film. Even worse, Shari Belafonte corrected her, and Banks dismissed her. Failing to recognize the importance of this movie is a disservice to black women and black moviegoers and filmmakers, and it erases women of color from the conversation around women’s representation. That’s basically the definition of white feminism. Elizabeth Banks was guilty of it, and so was I in failing to recognize this in my original article. She has since apologized, and I need to as well.

    You're blaming "roid rage," essentially. As someone who used both medically allowed levels and super physiological doses I can attest that this is likely not the case. Testosterone isn't going to magically make you a maniac murderer, even at very high doses. The effects are complex, but they essentially give you more confidence and make you feel masculine emotions like honor and protecting kind much more strongly.

    And no, cops are not routinely tested for steroids. The tests are much harder and expensive to conduct than a simple weed or cocaine test.

    Yes, they should definitely be tested for steroids and other drugs.

    You don't have to be taking anything synthetic for your moods, energy and attention to vary. Usually I'm pretty patient and capable of being diplomatic, but occasionally I'll get really irritable.

    Obviously some cops may not be so great. However I'm always amazed at the level of professionalism and the thick-skin they're able to summon, especially when dealing with their
    most "difficult" customers. Whatever training they get in this kind of emotional management is extraordinarily important... especially if it works. Cops have my respect for that challenge. I'm surprised they don't flip out more. Of course nobody's going to excuse them when they do lose it, but I really understand how it happens.

    The obsession with law enforcement handling of Blacks means that they've been scrutinizing it from every possible angle to prove that cops treat Blacks different than Whites. (It really does seem like they have an agenda and are just trying to find evidence for the conclusion they've already made.) One question has been burning in my mind for the past years ever since the crusade against "racial profiling" and "driving while Black" was launched.

    If we examine if law enforcement is treating Blacks differently, shouldn't we also check to see how Black perps are behaving any differently? If a perp is behaving insolently and provoking the cop by threatening, resisting, swearing at and spitting on the cop, isn't it logical that a tone different than a calm and polite exchange will be necessary ?

    Has this question maybe even been researched before? If not how could it be investigated? Perhaps collect footage of law enforcement encounters and compile statistics after evaluating tone of suspect / perp behavior? If it turns out that perps from different communities are actually behaving differently, perhaps the cops aren't the only ones who should be getting the training in good manners, civility and emotional management?

    Hey Steve– be careful about potentially misrepresenting what the media is reporting. They’re not falsely stating that the officer in this case is white, like they did with Zimmerman. Granted, they’re not clarifying he is non-white, but they aren’t affirmatively lying.

    I think he's joking here.
    , @TheJester
    If Yanez is Amerindian, then he is Asian. He is also Hispanic if his background is south-of-the-border (sans Brazil). Yanez looks like a Hispanic Asian, just like the other Amerindians we know from south-of-the-border.

    Castile had a gun is his lap? I can imagine what it would be like for a policeman to patrol a Black community where the odds are that next Black man he stops is probably armed and likely to draw. Yes, perhaps a little on the edge ... and justified in the anticipation.

    But the ongoing riots on the part of the Black activists and their allies have nothing to do with Castile. Welcome to the Age of Intersectionality that motivates the Left to rearrange victim groups and narratives on call to support their ideological axiom that White Privilege is the universal cause of individuals and groups feeling that they are excluded, oppressed, and/or otherwise disadvantaged ... and, of course, deserving of open-ended "gibsmedats" as compensation.

    BTW: Philando Castile sounds Hispanic. Was Philando Castile a Hispanic Black killed by a Hispanic Asian that the NYT considered White to support the Narrative?

    It's not supposed to persuade so much as pretzel your logic center. "Why, if I lived in a violent black neighborhood I suppose I could be hit by stray gunfire." You're only free from the violence blacks must face because you can afford not to love in tragic dirt.

    That's the message. Not persuasive in the classic sense, but mind-boggling to goodthinkers.

    It is not best understood as black-on-black crime; rather, it is neighbor-to-neighbor carnage. If their neighbors were white, they’d get no exemption from the crime that plagues human beings who happen to be black. If you want interracial killing, you have to have interracial communities.

     

    This paragraph is utterly surreal.

    It has crossed my mind to wonder whether occasionally a cop killing that looks to be pretty irrational might not be simply a case of a panic-stricken coward shooting without good cause, but instead a case of a cop who uses steroids losing his head.

    Social justice warriors are comfortable with things that doom them and their children to subjugation and mass violence, but not so sanguine about short term threats to physical safety. I attribute this to the fact that liberals live in the eternal present; they don't think much about the past, or about how long term trends will affect them. Moving to a troubled black neighborhood presents an obvious short-term threat to personal safety, and white liberals love themselves too much to step into harm's way like that.

    They also think that words are more important than action. For instance, I would have expected Tim Wise to be married to a black woman and proudly raising mixed race children, but one minute of digging confirms that his wife and children are as white as he is. While I know that SJW dogma doesn't require a white person to take a spouse from outside of his race, It just seems wrong somehow for Uncle Tim himself to be married to a white woman, given the ideology he embraces. Point is, I'll be willing to bet that Wise lives in a white neighborhood, too.

    More News from the SJW front:

    Elizabeth Banks calls out Spielberg for not having enough female leads.....But then gets accused of the sin of White Feminism:

    Yesterday, I wrote about Elizabeth Banks’ comments on Steven Spielberg’s poor track record of women’s representation. Specifically, I used the words “those correcting her are missing the point.” I used those words because at the time, the only people I saw correcting her were major outlets and die-hard Spielberg fans (almost all white and male), using her mistake to invalidate her larger point about the importance of representation. But there was another conversation going on that, at the time, I hadn’t yet heard.
     

    Banks said that Steven Spielberg had never directed a movie with a woman lead. In saying that, she was ignoring the existence of The Color Purple, an iconic, landmark film. Even worse, Shari Belafonte corrected her, and Banks dismissed her. Failing to recognize the importance of this movie is a disservice to black women and black moviegoers and filmmakers, and it erases women of color from the conversation around women’s representation. That’s basically the definition of white feminism. Elizabeth Banks was guilty of it, and so was I in failing to recognize this in my original article. She has since apologized, and I need to as well.

    Southeast Texas woman witnesses shooting deaths of daughter, unborn granddaughter

    A Southeast Texas mother is stunned after her 19-year-old pregnant daughter was shot and killed before her eyes during a robbery…

    “She kept saying no, please, please don’t, no. And I jerked her back and he opened the door and shot at her twice,” Morris said.

    She says she doesn’t know how she wasn’t hit as she ran for help with the man shooting at her as she fled.

    Morris explains the suspects didn’t ask for or say anything before just firing the gun at them.

    “How could someone do that to someone?” she asks.

    “if they wanted anything I would have given it to them except my baby,” Morris said.

    After police arrived Kera was taken to Christus St. Elizabeth Hospital where doctors tried to save the baby but it was too late.

    Morris not only lost her daughter but lost her granddaughter when Kyndal Jae Teel died shortly after she was delivered.

    The murder suspects who shot those bullets of hate into those White female bodies are of course ….black.

    Part of Michael Eric Dyson's racist animosity towards White America and his fixation on "whiteness" as the root of all evil maybe in part an attempt to assuage the black family shame of having a close relative who is a murderer of the member of some other black family.

    It's an important psychological technique to blame shift the fault onto White America to relieve the shame and guilt that will forever linger over his mother and her family.

  49. Officials in St. Anthony, Minn., where Yanez worked as a police officer, said he will not return to the police department from leave after the trial. They said they have decided “the public will be best served if Officer Yanez is no longer a police officer in our city.”

    “The city intends to offer Officer Yanez a voluntary separation agreement to help him transition to another career other than being a St. Anthony officer,” the city said in a statement. “The terms of this agreement will be negotiated in the near future, so details are not available at this time. In the meantime, Officer Yanez will not return to active duty.”

    From what I’ve seen of cop unions, this statement seems really hopeful on the part of the city. Unless Yanez was a probationary officer in his first 18 months or something, or this town or Minnesota has a very different labor relationship with peace officers than is commonly the case, Yanez and his union could fight this out and then some, and very possibly win. Is the town just going to buy him out of a 30 year career plus retirement? Keep paying him until he lands a job somewhere else?

  50. I don’t really have any opinion on Philando’s death, since I don’t know the details of the case, but I’m sure we’re going to hear that the data about police stops show that cops are racist. It’s often noted that, even though cops stop blacks significantly more often than whites, the rate at which those stops result in the discovery of a violation of the law is not higher for blacks than for whites. People usually conclude that, as a result, we can infer that black people are not more likely to violate the law than white people. I wrote a post on my blog a while ago in which I explain why this is actually a fallacy and propose that ideological uniformity among social scientists is why people nevertheless make that inference.

    That fact bears wider distribution. Thanks for mentioning.
  56. Millions of Americans believed they had seen “evidence” when they viewed the creepy video filmed by the dead man’s creepy girlfriend during his last few moments of his life. In fact, they had seen no such thing. They had merely been given a glimpse into the cop’s state of mind and the girlfriend’s opinion after the shooting. But that’s how stupid millions of Americans are…they don’t really even understand what evidence is.

    When I was in a business law class in college 35 years ago, we were asked by our professor to go to the county courthouse to view some of the proceedings. In one of the court rooms was a gigantic black man in his 20′s who was charged with disorderly conduct. The judge ( a black woman) talked to him about his charge and the legal ramifications. She used a lot of legal jargon, then asked him if he understood what she was saying. He obviously didn’t, but said “yes” anyway. The judge didn’t seem to care whether he understood or not.

    I’m sure his lawyer was some help, but I got the impression that most abstract ideas could not be simplified enough for this guy to comprehend. At the time, I was very uncomfortable with what I had seen. Criminal law must seem either like hocus pocus or a con game to a lot of intellectually challenged black people. Back then, their perceptions were probably a bit more towards hocus pocus end of the spectrum. Now, however, their perceptions have moved towards con game (or some other variant of oppression.)

    You're blaming "roid rage," essentially. As someone who used both medically allowed levels and super physiological doses I can attest that this is likely not the case. Testosterone isn't going to magically make you a maniac murderer, even at very high doses. The effects are complex, but they essentially give you more confidence and make you feel masculine emotions like honor and protecting kind much more strongly.

    And no, cops are not routinely tested for steroids. The tests are much harder and expensive to conduct than a simple weed or cocaine test.

    You don’t have to be taking anything synthetic for your moods, energy and attention to vary. Usually I’m pretty patient and capable of being diplomatic, but occasionally I’ll get really irritable.

    Obviously some cops may not be so great. However I’m always amazed at the level of professionalism and the thick-skin they’re able to summon, especially when dealing with their
    most “difficult” customers. Whatever training they get in this kind of emotional management is extraordinarily important… especially if it works. Cops have my respect for that challenge. I’m surprised they don’t flip out more. Of course nobody’s going to excuse them when they do lose it, but I really understand how it happens.

    The obsession with law enforcement handling of Blacks means that they’ve been scrutinizing it from every possible angle to prove that cops treat Blacks different than Whites. (It really does seem like they have an agenda and are just trying to find evidence for the conclusion they’ve already made.) One question has been burning in my mind for the past years ever since the crusade against “racial profiling” and “driving while Black” was launched.

    If we examine if law enforcement is treating Blacks differently, shouldn’t we also check to see how Black perps are behaving any differently? If a perp is behaving insolently and provoking the cop by threatening, resisting, swearing at and spitting on the cop, isn’t it logical that a tone different than a calm and polite exchange will be necessary ?

    Has this question maybe even been researched before? If not how could it be investigated? Perhaps collect footage of law enforcement encounters and compile statistics after evaluating tone of suspect / perp behavior? If it turns out that perps from different communities are actually behaving differently, perhaps the cops aren’t the only ones who should be getting the training in good manners, civility and emotional management?

    A number of years ago, a mid-Atlantic state's (I seem to recall New Jersey, though perhaps my memory fails me) highway patrol, in response to the usual "Driving While Black" nonsense installed cameras on a number of highway overpasses that could capture the speed as well as a likeness of the driver of any given vehicle. After over a year of gathering data, they reviewed the drivers of vehicles exceeding the speed limit by more than 25mph and they were overwhelmingly black, something like 60%.

    Spend a few hours on most eastern interstates and anecdotal evidence will confirm this. Tailgaters, excessive speeders, the types of people who fly up behind you until a foot off your bumper then slide over to pass (with no blinker, naturally): they often have a certain...similarity to each other.

    it is neighbor-to-neighbor carnage. If their neighbors were white, they’d get no exemption from the crime that plagues human beings who happen to be black.

    What starts with N, ends with R, and is the worst thing you can call a Black person?  Neighbor.

    Aside from totally justifying sundown towns, racially restrictive covenants and every shred of Jim Crow, Dyson reifies the “crime” that “plagues human beings who happen to be black”, because apparently assuming that Blacks have moral agency be rayciss.  We can do something about criminals; we cannot do anything about a “plague” of “crime” separate from those who commit it.  Yet here’s Dyson demanding action:

    we don’t know how to make you stop, or how to make you care enough to stop those who pull the triggers.

    We know how to stop lots of them:  stop and frisk them on the streets to get rid of the guns, use “broken windows” policing to stop small problems from becoming large ones, put the ones who will not or cannot behave behind bars so that their “plague” is limited to each other for a while.

    Dyson called this racism and demanded that it end.

    If you want interracial killing, you have to have interracial communities.

    Only you want this, Mr. Dyson.  Nobody else does.  Be careful what you wish for.

    I guess white people don’t have souls.

    In any event, Dyson hasn’t got the memo (got the tweet?) from his younger compatriots. Black people don’t have souls…………they only have “bodies”.

    You cannot know how we secretly curse the cowardice of whites who know what I write is true, but dare not say it.

    You delude yourself, Mr. Dyson. The only thing that whites are too cowardly to say is that we’re sick and tired of how violent and criminal YOUR people are.

    Need to add that Michael Eric Dyson's own BROTHER is a murderer.

    He fired bullets of hate into the muscles of another black male and killed his entire black body.

    I don't know if his black family was there to witness it.

    Part of Michael Eric Dyson's racist animosity towards White America and his fixation on "whiteness" as the root of all evil maybe in part an attempt to assuage the black family shame of having a close relative who is a murderer of the member of some other black family.

    It's an important psychological technique to blame shift the fault onto White America to relieve the shame and guilt that will forever linger over his mother and her family.

    Need to add that Michael Eric Dyson’s own BROTHER is a murderer.

    I live in DC and a good number of my friends are the wokiest wokes that ever woke, but I've never heard them mention Sam DuBose's name. AFAICT his family largely shut up about the matter and let the authorities handle it.

    Perhaps this is why:

    The University of Cincinnati’s settlement with the family of slain motorist Sam DuBose involves money, tuition for his 12 children, an on-campus memorial, an apology and a role for the family in campus matters relating to police reform.

    Philando had his gun sitting on his lap, partially uncovered, when Officer Yanez got to the driver's window. Officer Yanez drew his weapon and told Philando not to move. Philando did move, and was (quite properly) shot dead by Officer Yanez. Pictures of the scene, taken shortly after the removal of Philando from his car and the scene by medical personnel, show Philando's gun lying on the pavement, just outside of the driver's door. For those who do not recall, Officer Yanez had stopped the car because Philando bore a striking resemblance to one of two armed men who had robbed a nearby convenience store, just days before, for which a police bulletin, with photographs, had just been released to members of the local police force. Among the items stolen was a stash of menthol cigarettes. By an odd coincidence, Philando's car, at the time of his death, contained that same brand of cigarettes.

    Even if what you say is correct, it’s still seems like an overreaction. I feel for the cop and the decision making process under the duress.

    Minnesota is a wacky place. Here's Rachel Slavik writing for the Onion … er no, WCCO-TV's website:

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Twin Cities man is using cartoons to undermine extremist recruitment efforts here in Minnesota.

    Mohamed Ahmed is the man behind a series of cartoons known as “Average Mohamed.”

    Ahmed produces the cartoons to combat extremist ideology and prevent young Muslims from leaving to join terrorist organizations.

    For Ahmed, creativity takes shape at his computer.

    He spends hours working on his latest cartoon script, a passion project that has a much bigger purpose.

    “What it does is it goes against radicalization and concepts of extremism,” Ahmed said.

    Four years ago, Ahmed created the cartoon character meant to counter terrorist recruitment efforts in Minnesota.

    “Our role is to do three things: promote peace, promote democracy and the democratic institutions, and the third concept is anti-extremism,” Mohamed said.

    Using plain talk and animation, the videos reject extremist ideology in a way kids can understand.

    “This is the generation of ‘Family Guy’ and ‘Simpsons.’ They’re used to getting their messages from cartoons,” Ahmed said.

    He works with clergy and other members of the Muslim community in crafting the message for each cartoon. Each video specifically undermines elements used in recruitment addressing racism, Islamophobia and the glamorization of radicalization.

    “I’ve had kids tell me, look, I saw a video of a suicide bomber, until I saw your video I thought suicide bombers go to heaven, and we tell them point-blank, using our own religion, they go to hell,” he said. “That’s a very powerful statement.”

    Mohamed may refer to himself as average, yet many feel the task he’s taking on is extraordinarily important.

    In addition to the videos, Mohamed talks to student groups. He sees the videos as a way to start that conversation.

    The cartoons have been watched more than a million times in 130 countries, and Mohamed says he could have further reach with more help.

    He pays for the majority of them out of his own pocket.

    If you’d like to help Mohamed, you can donate to his project here.

    Now, who is retconning? Yanez was initially described as Asian.

    If Yanez is Amerindian, then he is Asian. He is also Hispanic if his background is south-of-the-border (sans Brazil). Yanez looks like a Hispanic Asian, just like the other Amerindians we know from south-of-the-border.

    Castile had a gun is his lap? I can imagine what it would be like for a policeman to patrol a Black community where the odds are that next Black man he stops is probably armed and likely to draw. Yes, perhaps a little on the edge … and justified in the anticipation.

    But the ongoing riots on the part of the Black activists and their allies have nothing to do with Castile. Welcome to the Age of Intersectionality that motivates the Left to rearrange victim groups and narratives on call to support their ideological axiom that White Privilege is the universal cause of individuals and groups feeling that they are excluded, oppressed, and/or otherwise disadvantaged … and, of course, deserving of open-ended “gibsmedats” as compensation.

    BTW: Philando Castile sounds Hispanic. Was Philando Castile a Hispanic Black killed by a Hispanic Asian that the NYT considered White to support the Narrative?

    Social justice warriors are comfortable with things that doom them and their children to subjugation and mass violence, but not so sanguine about short term threats to physical safety. I attribute this to the fact that liberals live in the eternal present; they don’t think much about the past, or about how long term trends will affect them. Moving to a troubled black neighborhood presents an obvious short-term threat to personal safety, and white liberals love themselves too much to step into harm’s way like that.

    They also think that words are more important than action. For instance, I would have expected Tim Wise to be married to a black woman and proudly raising mixed race children, but one minute of digging confirms that his wife and children are as white as he is. While I know that SJW dogma doesn’t require a white person to take a spouse from outside of his race, It just seems wrong somehow for Uncle Tim himself to be married to a white woman, given the ideology he embraces. Point is, I’ll be willing to bet that Wise lives in a white neighborhood, too.

    The cop shot him in the BACK with the M-4 from thirty yards as he was turning AWAY from the cops. Other cops beanbagged him after he was shot, not before. He was known to be mentally ill, telling the cops he was a secret Special Forces commando.

    Officials in St. Anthony, Minn., where Yanez worked as a police officer, said he will not return to the police department from leave after the trial. They said they have decided “the public will be best served if Officer Yanez is no longer a police officer in our city.”

    “The city intends to offer Officer Yanez a voluntary separation agreement to help him transition to another career other than being a St. Anthony officer,” the city said in a statement. “The terms of this agreement will be negotiated in the near future, so details are not available at this time. In the meantime, Officer Yanez will not return to active duty.”
     
    From what I've seen of cop unions, this statement seems really hopeful on the part of the city. Unless Yanez was a probationary officer in his first 18 months or something, or this town or Minnesota has a very different labor relationship with peace officers than is commonly the case, Yanez and his union could fight this out and then some, and very possibly win. Is the town just going to buy him out of a 30 year career plus retirement? Keep paying him until he lands a job somewhere else?

For instance, I would have expected Tim Wise to be married to a black woman and proudly raising mixed race children, but one minute of digging confirms that his wife and children are as white as he is. While I know that SJW dogma doesn't require a white person to take a spouse from outside of his race, It just seems wrong somehow for Uncle Tim himself to be married to a white woman, given the ideology he embraces. Point is, I'll be willing to bet that Wise lives in a white neighborhood, too.

    “Point is, I’ll be willing to bet that Wise lives in a white neighborhood, too.”

    I’ll repeat what I posted at this forum several months ago. A few years ago, Tim Wise’s home address was given out on the internet. Curious, I drove by the address in Nashville, Tennessee one afternoon. Wise lived in a mansion. It was in one of the whitest sections of the city. There were no black people anywhere in sight.

    About two blocks and a left turn away was a golf course. There were two white men who looked to be in their 70′s playing golf.

    I know I ask a lot of questions, but that's because this forum is so unique and the commenters so good.

    So here it is: What's the relationship between pot-smoking and obesity? Is the explosion in black obesity related to tons of pot inhalation?

    Crack makes you skinny, weed makes you fat. In the mid-1990s, a lot of blacks decided that crack was a really, really bad idea and shifted to weed. They got fatter and less active and their homicide rate dropped.

    So don’t say people never learn.

    Has anyone here read "On the Run", by Alice Goffman? It's hilarious. As a white, bookish white person of roughly the same age, it was an entire book of getting a wink and an elbow to the ribs. For all her ostentatious leftism, what she was depicting was a community that desperately needed ever more, and ever harsher, policing.

    Jill Leovy’s “Ghettoside” is the much more aware version of Goffman’s “On the Run.” Leovy says what South-Central LA needs is more policing.

    Also have never understood the propensity of many black columnists to use extra flowery language.

    “Also have never understood the population propensity of many black columnists to use extra flowery language”

    I could get all psychological and say they’re compensating for their insecurities as writers. Or anthropological and say they’re the product of Boasting Culture, which on the street takes the form of rap and in a newspaper column comes out as purple prose. Mike Tyson has the same problem, despite his ability to take it out on people’s heads with his fists.

    But really they’re just bad writers and blowhards.

    Have you ever heard of the munchies?

    That, and weed doesn’t give you much get-up-and-go, to put it mildly.

    We, black America, are a nation of nearly 40 million souls…
     
    Why not: "We, black America, are a nation of nearly 40 million BLACK BODIES…"

    I noticed that as well while reading the article but several commentators already beat me to it. I wonder how much of it is the legacy terminology of fading religion. In any case I don’t understand why young SJWs would intentionally demean themselves by referring to their bodies instead of souls. A body is simply carnal while a soul is spiritually higher, so shouldn’t their haughtiness/pride (or whatever you want to call it) make them more likely to say souls instead?

    I don't follow the local news too closely here in MN, but I do inevitably overhear gossip. People weren't that worked up about this case. It's just another Unfortunate Thing they talk about from time to time.

    The blacks are more upset, naturally. We'll see how ornery they get.

    Minnesota is a wacky place. Here’s Rachel Slavik writing for the Onion … er no, WCCO-TV’s website:

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Twin Cities man is using cartoons to undermine extremist recruitment efforts here in Minnesota.

    Mohamed Ahmed is the man behind a series of cartoons known as “Average Mohamed.”

    Ahmed produces the cartoons to combat extremist ideology and prevent young Muslims from leaving to join terrorist organizations.

    For Ahmed, creativity takes shape at his computer.

    He spends hours working on his latest cartoon script, a passion project that has a much bigger purpose.

    “What it does is it goes against radicalization and concepts of extremism,” Ahmed said.

    Four years ago, Ahmed created the cartoon character meant to counter terrorist recruitment efforts in Minnesota.

    “Our role is to do three things: promote peace, promote democracy and the democratic institutions, and the third concept is anti-extremism,” Mohamed said.

    Using plain talk and animation, the videos reject extremist ideology in a way kids can understand.

    “This is the generation of ‘Family Guy’ and ‘Simpsons.’ They’re used to getting their messages from cartoons,” Ahmed said.

    He works with clergy and other members of the Muslim community in crafting the message for each cartoon. Each video specifically undermines elements used in recruitment addressing racism, Islamophobia and the glamorization of radicalization.

    “I’ve had kids tell me, look, I saw a video of a suicide bomber, until I saw your video I thought suicide bombers go to heaven, and we tell them point-blank, using our own religion, they go to hell,” he said. “That’s a very powerful statement.”

    Mohamed may refer to himself as average, yet many feel the task he’s taking on is extraordinarily important.

    In addition to the videos, Mohamed talks to student groups. He sees the videos as a way to start that conversation.

    The cartoons have been watched more than a million times in 130 countries, and Mohamed says he could have further reach with more help.

    He pays for the majority of them out of his own pocket.

    If you’d like to help Mohamed, you can donate to his project here.

    You don't have to be taking anything synthetic for your moods, energy and attention to vary. Usually I'm pretty patient and capable of being diplomatic, but occasionally I'll get really irritable.

    Obviously some cops may not be so great. However I'm always amazed at the level of professionalism and the thick-skin they're able to summon, especially when dealing with their
    most "difficult" customers. Whatever training they get in this kind of emotional management is extraordinarily important... especially if it works. Cops have my respect for that challenge. I'm surprised they don't flip out more. Of course nobody's going to excuse them when they do lose it, but I really understand how it happens.

    The obsession with law enforcement handling of Blacks means that they've been scrutinizing it from every possible angle to prove that cops treat Blacks different than Whites. (It really does seem like they have an agenda and are just trying to find evidence for the conclusion they've already made.) One question has been burning in my mind for the past years ever since the crusade against "racial profiling" and "driving while Black" was launched.

    If we examine if law enforcement is treating Blacks differently, shouldn't we also check to see how Black perps are behaving any differently? If a perp is behaving insolently and provoking the cop by threatening, resisting, swearing at and spitting on the cop, isn't it logical that a tone different than a calm and polite exchange will be necessary ?

    Has this question maybe even been researched before? If not how could it be investigated? Perhaps collect footage of law enforcement encounters and compile statistics after evaluating tone of suspect / perp behavior? If it turns out that perps from different communities are actually behaving differently, perhaps the cops aren't the only ones who should be getting the training in good manners, civility and emotional management?

    “One question has been burning in my mind for the past years ever since the crusade against “racial profiling” and “driving while Black” was launched. ”

    A number of years ago, a mid-Atlantic state’s (I seem to recall New Jersey, though perhaps my memory fails me) highway patrol, in response to the usual “Driving While Black” nonsense installed cameras on a number of highway overpasses that could capture the speed as well as a likeness of the driver of any given vehicle. After over a year of gathering data, they reviewed the drivers of vehicles exceeding the speed limit by more than 25mph and they were overwhelmingly black, something like 60%.

    Spend a few hours on most eastern interstates and anecdotal evidence will confirm this. Tailgaters, excessive speeders, the types of people who fly up behind you until a foot off your bumper then slide over to pass (with no blinker, naturally): they often have a certain…similarity to each other.
