When Black people tell society there are valid reasons why cops are not to be trusted, THIS is what we mean

He expresses discomfort and at the same time we’re also meant to believe he was ignorant of the torture. The word of the day is BS

A Tweet Or Two

In South Carolina, a state with a long and deep history of racial discrimination against African Americans, three white law enforcement officers have been indicted in recent months on charges stemming from incidents in which they shot — and in two cases, killed — unarmed black men.

The release of the November jobs report Friday morning offered good news for the economy writ large (big job growth, still to be adjusted) and therefore for President Obama. Obama has now observed the release of about three-quarters of the jobs reports that fell under his jurisdiction — 23 more until the presidential election! — meaning, as a corollary, that we now have a pretty good sense of how his tenure will be viewed. Because the economy is so big and so diverse, individual numbers tend to get hard to see in comparison to the overall trend. Health care stands out (here including social assistance workers); it has seen growth month after month after month.

‘Racists Shoot Us, They Walk Away Free’

How does one look at today and not conclude that America hates Black people?

Racists shoot us, they walk away free.

Racists are video taped killing us, and still they walk away free.

We talk right, we walk right, we dress right, we earn an education, we hold down jobs, we contribute in numerous ways to this country, but still they kill us and we can’t even get a facsimile of justice.

Every single day this country is killing us. This country is killing our fathers, our mothers, our sisters, our brothers, our nieces, our children, our nephews, our cousins, our grandparents all because of the color of our skin.

America is essentially saying that if you have white skin you are entitled to justice. If you have white skin you are entitled to do anything negative you want in this country and get away with it. If you have white skin you are entitled to life and damn everyone else.

There is a sickness in this country. There is a horror in this country and Black people are being killed because of it.

I still continue to hope for better days but right now, I look at African-Americans around me with tears in my eyes.

I look at Black children around me with tears in my eyes because I’m not sure they may live to see tomorrow.

May God help us all.

NYT: Justice Dept. Sets Record In Penalties For Fraud

The Justice Department collected a record $24.7 billion in penalties from fraud and other cases in the 2014 fiscal year, the agency said on Wednesday, as fines against banks for financial misconduct soared. Collections from civil and criminal actions, including money collected on behalf of other agencies, was $8 billion in 2013, and $13 billion in 2012. Collections in 2014 were bolstered by multibillion-dollar payouts from JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup to resolve claims they misled investors about the quality of mortgage bonds in the run-up to the financial crisis, and include $11 billion in payments made to federal agencies or states. Payouts in the 2014 fiscal year, which ended Sept. 30, also include hundreds of millions of dollars in fines levied on UBS and Royal Bank of Scotland.
