three fat cops on top of a 120 pound dude and the cop that has just smashed him in the face 3 or 4 times with a metal flashlight looks up at the cop that has just arrived and says, "help us".. like they were in some kind of danger. It's amazing how little leadership their is among the cops.. it's like a bunch of kids with guns and authority running around the city fighting for no good reason. Force is the only tool that cops are trained to use. And if all you have is a hammer... the saying goes...

as much as the media and the police force would like to make this about just these two cops.. it really goes much deeper than that. It's time for the American people to demand a new approach to the policing of their communities. These cops were produced by the culture of cops.. and the culture of cops is a byproduct of the greater culture.. and someone somewhere needs to take a serious look at that. Force cannot be the answer for every situation. And certain psychological profiles need to be disqualified from police service.

When these things happen to non-black folks.. black folks need to be out there in the streets just as hard as they are when it happens to black folks.. Politically speaking.. black folks have got to cross racial lines in order to bring about some of the changes that black folks want to see. John Williams and Oscar Grant.. and Sean Bell.. and Kenneth Chamberlain.. and Kelly Thomas.. and many others.. all died from the same thing.. and all of those communities should be coming together to bring about some kind of fundamental change..

Cops are self-righteous hypocrites.

These sort of abuses of authority are just the ones which we hear and see about. Imagine how many more times such things occur but no video is available. Without the video, every cop on that scene would have testified that Thomas assaulted them and that they only acted in self-defense. And, they all would have gotten off.

Cops are self-righteous hypocrites.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
