The Twisted Politics Of White Resentment Is Our Real Police/Race Problem

AFRICANGLOBE – One April morning in 1973 a veteran police officer named Thomas Shea pulled his service revolver and blew away a young Black boy on a street in Jamaica, Queens. He shot the kid in the back. There was no chance of survival. Afterward, no one could figure out why the officer had done it. There was no reason for the shooting, no threat to Officer Shea of any kind. The boy’s name was Clifford Glover and he was 10 years old. Officer Shea was charged with murder but of course he was acquitted.

Freeing African Minds

The Lives Of The NYPD Officers Killed In Brooklyn Are No More Valuable Than That Of Eric Garner

AFRICANGLOBE – NYPDLIVESMATTER is positioned as a response to “Black Lives Matter” demonstrates how “law and order”, white racial resentment, and White supremacy are deeply intertwined and almost inseparable in the (White) American political imagination.

Do Not Stop The Protests Against Police Brutality

AFRICANGLOBE – The murders of the two NYPD officers were ghastly, but no group of Americans should be asked to stop exercising their Constitutional rights because of what occurred in Brooklyn. This is particularly true for Black Americans who have long been admonished to wait their turn. Black citizens are always expected to give up so much for a country that has given them so little. But, despite Saturday’s horrible events, Black lives stillmatter.

NYPD Declares “We Are At War” After Death Of Two Cops

AFRICANGLOBE – To Patrick Lynch, a cop’s killing is unacceptable. But to Patrick Lynch (and to too many white people), a cop acting as judge, jury and executioner is somehow acceptable. The NYPD has “become a ‘wartime’ police department. We will act accordingly.” Wartime? These are the marching orders to the 35,000 armed members of the biggest police department in the United States. The fear inside that police union boss is not just about the actual violence which may befall his members; it’s a fear that the NYPD is in danger of losing its monopoly on the threat of violence.
