talking about MIS-information...
watching a Rodney king interview on CSPAN Book TV from an earlier date (20th anniversary) and thought I'd share some 'high points' BOTH the interviewer and interviewee and questioners from the audience made.
1. in response to a question, RK stated that he had NOT done any active participation in anti-black violence.... BUT he would as he was scared to do so.
2. in another response to a quest., about the role of black men intervening and correcting uncivil behaviour by young (teen-aged) black males:
(to paraphrase) RK said one needed to approach such young males in a 'quiet' manner, so as not to provoke a confrontation. his reason? if you make them mad, they may become violent and SOME of them might pull a gun on you! he did NOT say whether or not he had ever done so (I doubt he had) and he did not say, as in 1., above, that he would. his mentioning the possibility of being shot leads me to believe he IS scared of young black males more so than protesting white, racist police/groups.
3. at the prompting of the interviewer, RK offered his opinion that the screams heard in the TM case were 'death wails', similar to HIS own made during his ordeal. nobody there disputed his opinion (surprise, surprise!). in the space of about 10 minutes, TM went from being an innocent boy to his age and race being characterized as dangerous and possibily armed and NOT to be approached in anything but a 'soft' manner back to making 'death wails'!?!
4. interesting bit of data: RK said there were TWO black school(?)'police' officers present at his beating... and they did NOTHING. at first, he was going to sue them, too, but decided NOT to include them (he alluded to them having their own problems and he did not want to add to them). they must have got wind of his original intentions beacause THEY SUED HIM... and won $260,000!! he, of course, had the money to pay them from HIS settlement.LOL
5. in general, the 'information' about the TM/GZ case discussed and put forth by ALL three segments of the people talking, very much resembles the OPINIONS expressed here by similar minded posters. there was NO mention of the violent acts that led up to the fatal shot. NO discussion of what or why a barely 17 yr old 'boy' was either suspended from sch or out in an UN-familiar neighborhood. NO mention of the role of the father or his subsequent actions after coming home (there was mention about the PD NOT notifying TM's parents that their 'john doe' son was in the morgue).
6. there was token mention of black-on-black crime and a lot of references to slavery period violence and RK shared his experience of driving his mini-bike into some seclude spot where he grew up and WITNESSING the sheriff dep's taking blacks there and beating them. NO mention of reporting said abuses or attempting to stop them (RK was born in 1965, so, add 12 yrs? and it would have been '77 or later... no interested newspaper or local TV reporters or the NAACP or Urban League, I guess?). just a LOT of 'Oh, woe is US!' and there ain't NO justice, etc...
all in all, a very interesting look inside the culture and thinking of the 2012 black American male mindset... and the words of the late Mr. King (Rodney, that is).
just thought I'd share this...

I once heard a story about a stink fatty who got her cheeks stuck in the toilet.

She sat in there for a month while her boyfriend fed her cheeseburgers.

This cemented her position and then her boyfriend started bringing women over to the house.

Fortunately, had two bathrooms before his fat girl friend became part of the fixtures.

Nobody knows how long she was stuck in the toilet before she was finally reported missing.

They never did find a fatbody!

The media will use Tropical Storm Isaac as a distraction from the "Message" that will be spread at the Republican Convention.

Freedom from Big Government!

And the worst economy in modern history!
