Barack Obama, our next President

For this administration, mass incarceration is top priority.”

When the president told the nation, last week, that “African-American young men are disproportionately involved in the criminal justice system,” he was attempting to frame white fears of Blacks as somehow practical and commonsensical, rather than racist.(Obama denied that racism is “endemic” to the U.S. in his Philadelphia speech on race, in March, 2008.) In the real world of pervasively racist America, Blacks are hyper-surveilled from damn near cradle to the grave, both within and outside their communities.“Involvement” in the criminal justice system is all but inevitable.

Hyper-surveillance places the assumption of guilt on the peoples and communities that are targeted – which, in the U.S., means all Black people (even Barack Obama –“until I was a senator,” he said). Hyper-surveillance – its justification and practice – stripped Trayvon Martin of the presumption of innocence, marking him with a fatal presumption of guilt. Two-thirds of whites still believe his death was justified, despite the clear facts of his innocence. That’s why his death is ordinary – because ordinary white people routinely condone such killings.

“I think Ray Kelly is one of the best there is.”

And so, in practice, does Obama, despite his press conference theatrics. The president has high praise, and possibly a powerful appointment in store, for Ray Kelly, the New York City Police Commissioner who has overseen and defended over five million stop-and-frisks since 2002, overwhelmingly targeting Black and brown men. Obama is looking for a new head of Homeland Security.“I think Ray Kelly is one of the best there is,” Obama said. Kelly proudly justifies his management of the Mother-of-All-Stop-and-Frisk operations, as intended “to instill fear” in young Blacks and Latinos that they may be patted down by a cop whenever they leave their homes. Kelly also created a massive program to spy on Muslims, not only in New York City but in other localities, and arranged for CIA agents to be embedded in the NYPD to conduct domestic surveillance – which is illegal.

Freedom Rider: The Corporate Media’s Mass Hypnosis
Delivery systems and platforms for information may proliferate at blinding speed, but most Americans have no access to anything resembling the truth. They may know the names of the dead – like Trayvon Martin – but have no clue why they died.“Lies and nonsense are the standard fare for the most read and watched news sources in this country.”

When Jay-Z and Beyonce show up at a rally, a movement has bitten the dust.”

What would a hypothetical person know after diligently reading the newspaper, watching television news and reading online news sources for the past week? That person would know that someone named Trayvon Martin had been murdered and that he looked like or could have been or would look like the son of the president. This anonymous man or woman would know that Al Sharpton, Jay-Z, and Beyonce were sad that Trayvon was dead. The news follower wouldn’t know the ugly truth of why Trayvon was killed, the real reason his murderer went free, or that the man most able to bring justice probably would not.

The anonymous viewer/reader would know that a rich woman in London gave birth to a baby boy. He or she wouldn’t know that the rich woman and her husband and baby had their immense wealth as a result of great theft which took place over many centuries and which continues at the expense of millions of people. Despite the enormous amount of coverage, the news consumer wouldn’t know how many people were really interested in the rich family at all.

Not surprized you do not know the difference. In effect there is no difference;
Not guilty = Innocent
Innocent = Not guilty
If Zimmerman were black and trayvon white you would have cheered the juries verdict, Not guilty - innocent.

FUNNY THESE THINGS ARE HAPPENING UNDER THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT WHAT A FRAUD OBAMA The concerned citizen would know that the city of Detroit, Michigan was declared bankrupt. They would know that the city’s art collection might be sold off, but not that pension obligations had already been subverted and workers and retirees who ought to live a decent life were instead on the road to being impoverished. The imagined news junkie would see images of dilapidated buildings and empty neighborhoods but would not be told that capitalism itself had destroyed a once thriving city which provided high wages to generations of workers.

This person who made efforts to be informed would know that America was in the midst of a searing heat wave. Some of the news stories would point out that 2012 was the hottest year on record for the continental United States because of something called climate change. They may or may not have been told that climate change resulted from increased production of fossil fuels and high levels of CO2 in the atmosphere. They would not know that the world’s second worst culprit of CO2 production was the United States of America.

Jane or John Q. Public would learn that a man named Ray Kelly was commissioner of the New York Police Department and the president found him “well qualified” to be nominated as Secretary of Homeland Security. They would not know that the president, putatively black, was singing the praises of a man who orchestrated the criminalization of nearly every black person in New York City through the infamous stop and frisk policy.

HIS SUPPORTERS ARE FOOLS IF THE FULL BLODDIED WAS PRESIDENT THERE WOULD BE PROTEST IN THE STREETS BUT HE WAS PUT IN TO OVERSEE THE DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA AS WE KNOW IT AND THAT WILL ALL END BLACKS BUT THEY WILL SEE

The X body cars, which Roger Smith referred to as the Jap killers were junk, as where the turds the X bodies replaced.

Sounds like you owned one pal.

That was the old GM, the one that allowed the board of directors to make all the the decisions on who to hire, what to build and even choose the color line up. That GM died the day that Rick Wagoner was shown the doorway by security along with over half of the directors in a WTF moment that was predicted in the late 70's by DeLorean in his beyond terrific book, "On a Clear Day, You can See GM."

In other news, Mayor Filner is going to check into rehab for jerkovs, Michelle Bachmann is being investigated for campaign fund indiscretions and Weiner's going limp in polling.

You are dumb. If one takes a part time job, he is no longer listed as unemployed. The business does provide health insurance to full time employees, managers, department heads, buyers. The employees who take the part time positions they know going in that health insurance will not be provided. They made a choice. Unlike you they are working, they do not have their hand out.
