Xstrav and Tino Brown at the ABC Liquor store located in Fayeteville North Carolina waiting for Money Mal to come so that they could purchase some liquor. Suddenly an undercover cop approaches the both of them and demands to see what Xstrav is drinking. X shows him that its an Arizona Half And Half Ice Tea, the undercover demands that he hands it over so that he can read the ingredients. Once Xstrav denies handing over his can the cop tells him to leave the property for trespassing. Out of nowhere an actual drunken stranger walks up starts giving shout outs and smelling like liquor...OBVIOUSLY drunk and he is just ignored and walks away without incident.
Then the cop tells X to put his hands behind his back so X gets arrested for trespassing. This is just a classic case of a cop taking advantage of his power and arresting a another black man for not doing things the way HE wanted him to do them. X was asked to show him what is in the can...After showing the cop that it was an Arizona Tea, that should've been it but because he didn't put it in the cops hand, the cop was upset and decided to put any charge on him....Share and thanks for watching...2nd video which shows the actual cop car showing up and arresting him.

Massage therapy student charged with inappropriately touching client in Brentwood
Though the Supreme Court ruled racial segregation unconstitutional in 1954, parents in a town in Georgia have ensured the doctrine of “separate but equal” survived at prom dances.
But that could all change. Students at Wilcox County High School in south Georgia have organized the school’s very first racially integrated prom, which will be held on April 27.
“We live in rural south Georgia, where not too many things change,” they wrote on a Facebook page they created. “Well, as a group of adamant high school seniors, we want to make a difference in our community. For the first time in the history of our county, we plan to have an integrated prom.”
When the school was integrated 30 years ago, it ended its annual prom and parents began sponsoring their own private dances for students. The prom and homecoming dances have been segregated ever since.
A biracial student tried to attend an all-white prom last year. The incident resulted in the student being turned away and police being called.
“I actually put up posters for the integrated prom and we’ve had people ripping them down at the school,” Keela Bloodworth, one of the organizers of the integrated prom, told local news station WSFA.

A self-proclaimed white supremisist teen from Russell County, Alambama, plotted to kill six African Americans in his school, was released on a $75,000 bail this past Monday. According to authorities, a teacher at his school (who should be recognized for adverting another massacre) found a notebook detailing the plot and turned it over to authorities.
You would think that something like this would make national headlines. A teacher, school district, and police working together to protect their students was thwarted by a judge who feels that their lives and those of 6 African American students, are not worth protecting! This kid's parents obviously didn't have any problems with him making bombs in their home, so why is he out on bail? He was charged with first degree attempted assault, but why isn't he charged with terrorism? He was plotting to kill and intimidate an entire community based on race so why isn't he charged with hate crimes and ethnic intimidation? Is it because he's white? If this suspect was of another race, would the charges still be the same?
Why aren't we talking about this? Is it because this potential tragedy was adverted or because of the potential victims involved?A self-proclaimed white supremisist teen from Russell County, Alambama, plotted to... more

"Ain't I a Woman?" This question is attributed to Sojourner Truth's speech at a women's convention in 1851. And it's a question that's still relevant to African American women in 2012, as demonstrated by first lady Michelle Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention this week where she touched upon health care and women's choices.
African American women are nearly four times more likely to die of pregnancy-related complications than white women.
Nationally, black women account for 66 percent of new cases of HIV among women.
HIV/AIDS-related illness is now the leading cause of death among black women ages 25-34.
Black and Hispanic women's rates of unwanted pregnancy and abortion are significantly higher than those of white women, according to the New York-based Guttmacher Institute.
Black women are three times more likely to experience an unintended pregnancy than white women. These higher rates in unexpected pregnancy reflect a disparity in access to quality affordable contraceptive services along with other quality women's health care services.
Census report projections suggest women of color are rapidly on their way to becoming the majority of women in the United States by 2041.
While my focus is on African American women, the experiences of Native American, Latina and Asian women also have different nuances than those of white U.S. women and they need to be heard as well.

The Kickstarter campaign for this documentary needs your support.
Over the past six years or so I've been working on a documentary about the Yamakiya Taiko Club from Fukushima, Japan. I am reaching out to let you know 'Don Doko Don: The Yamkiya Taiko Club Story' Kickstarter campaign was launched for this special documentary and I am seeking your support. This is the link:
Don Doko Don: The Yamakiya Taiko Club Story follows an award winning Japanese Taiko Drum Troop – comprised entirely of kids, teens and 20-year-olds – living in Yamakiya, a small town near the failed Fukushima nuclear power plant. The group is forced to flee their homes and beloved mountain community after the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster wreaked devastation on them.
Living as refugees and scattered around the countryside outside and within the radiation zone, the brave Taiko troop struggles to stay together and practice; trying to keep alive the spirit of their community - and the hope of returning home one day. And then, after facing daily adversity and at their lowest point, they get invited to Washington D.C. to be the honored performer in D.C.'s 100th Cherry Blossom Festival; headlining a climatic performance at the Kennedy Center!
I've been making films for more than 20 years. It has always been a rewarding and challenging experience. I never imagined my journey would bring me to project with such an international scope and profoundly personal on so many levels.
Please check out the link and watch the video for more information. It's less than four minutes. This is an all or nothing campaign. Every contribution, whether $5, $10, $25, $50 or $100, or more, but not your 401K, brings us closer to our goal, so we can start the process to complete the project.
I hope you can support and help spread the word. If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know. Thank you for your time and consideration.

In a party that tends to be old and white, Ron Paul and his views are attracting demographic groups that are not traditionally affiliated with the Republican Party – youth, minorities, civil libertarians, the apolitical, those who are traditionally non-voters, and even Democrats.
On May 6, Nevada Republicans announced that 22 Paul supporters were chosen to fill 25 spaces for the Republican National Convention. Recent analysis shows that of those delegates were two female delegates who identify as Hispanic and one black delegate.
One Paul supporter said about Sunday’s results: “A common critique of small-minded opponents on the left is that Paul is racist. He’s exactly the opposite – he sees everyone as an individual, the guy doesn’t give a damn about what ‘group’ we are a part of. He represents a belief in the importance of the individual – something the Republican Party used to represent.”
While Paul speaks an old message, one of freedom, it still resonates with people of all ages and is clearly attracting a new kind of energy to the stodgy, pro-establishment Republican Party.
One of the recently-elected delegates to the Republican National Convention, Wiselet Rouzard, who identifies as African American, commented, “The 15% minority delegation being sent to Tampa to

I understand the need people have to express their solidarity by wearing Hoodies but at what point do they decide to act to make things better? Showing support is fine but in a lot of cases people will do it for a few days and once the story has lost the interest of the media the general public will go back to their daily routines and continue to ignore the bigger issue. Simply wearing a Hoodie won't solve anything even if for a moment it makes you feel better. It shouldn't be about making you feel better anyway, it should be about opening a dialog. Until people are willing to connect with one another and truly discuss their differences, even if it is uncomfortable and completely foreign to their own way of life I'm afraid more Trayvons will lose their lives to acts of senseless violence. We really need to stop killing our own future with the ignorance of the past. Just a thought.I understand the need people have to express their solidarity by wearing Hoodies but... more
