11 July 2016

Black Lives Matter protests have erupted across the country in the wake of multiple police killings of black people recorded on video in rapid succession. Riot police recently pushed a protest back onto the property of one of the members. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Hundreds of protesters and several journalists were arrested over the weekend during nationwide demonstrations against police violence in the wake of the shooting deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile—two black men who were killed by the police last week, and whose last moments were caught on video. The videos, which quickly went viral, have sparked national outcry over police brutality and racism in the justice system.

Leading Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson was among those arrested on Saturday in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where Sterling, a husband and father of five, was shot and killed outside a convenience store while selling CDs. Mckesson was released the following day and is being charged with simple obstruction of a highway of commerce. Since his release, he has criticized Baton Rouge police for provoking protesters and doing “everything in their power” to shift conversations away from police accountability.”

Rudy Giuliani: The Real Danger Is Black Kids!

11 July 2016

Rudy Giuliani is on one of his “black people suck” media tours. This time he’s explaining how black kids are the real problem in America. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Rudy Giuliani sparked national outrage with comments he made about the Black Lives Matter movement Sunday…

“When you say black lives matter, that’s inherently racist,” said Giuliani, who made tough policing a hallmark of his time as mayor. “Black lives matter. White lives matter. Asian lives matter. Hispanic lives matter. That’s anti-American and it’s racist.”…

However, he did so by blaming “black kids” for their own deaths, which has been criticized as extremely insensitive.

CNN Cop: Black People More Prone To Criminality

11 July 2016

A CNN panel recently got a little heated when former NYPD detective Harry Houck said black people are more prone to criminality. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down.

“Former NYPD detective Harry Houck on Monday argued that the black Americans were “prone to criminality,” and that activists should stop claiming that blacks were being “picked on” by law enforcement.

During a panel discussion on CNN’s New Day about police killing two black men, Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, Houck argued that “racial demagogues” were wrong to complain about “disparities of blacks and whites in jails.”

Houck presented a sheet of paper which he said had statistics proving that black people were far more likely to commit violent crimes than whites.

“That’s why there are more blacks in jail than there are whites,” he insisted. “They turn it around — the racial demagogues out there — turn it around that the blacks are being picked on.”

CNN commentator Mark Lamont Hill pointed out that an investigation in Ferguson, Missouri found that there was “considerable evidence of racism” in the police department.”

    TWO black television journalists were arrested while reporting on a Black Lives Matter demonstration in New York state over the weekend, website Blavity reported yesterday.

    Reporters Carlet Cleare and Justin Carter, working for ABC affiliate 13 WHAM, were nabbed from behind as they covered the protest in Rochester, near the Canadian border, on Friday night.

    Their cameraman and two other reporters were standing beside them at the time but were not arrested.

    A total of 74 people out of the roughly 400 protesters were reportedly arrested for disorderly conduct, although police chief Michael Ciminelli said there were no injuries or property damage.

    13 WHAM manager Chuck Samuels said: “My concern is this: why the need for this? Why the need for handcuffs?”

    “You could have approached her and said: ‘Excuse me miss, what are you doing here?’

    “But to immediately slap cuffs on somebody and take them away — that’s why I have a concern.”
