AFRICANGLOBE - Dylann Roof, the white terrorist convicted in the assault on Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, that left a total of 12 victims, nine of them dead, was sentenced to death on Tuesday. Jurors began deliberating Tuesday over whether Roof, 22, should get the death penalty or life in prison for his crimes. It took two hours for the 12 jurors to come to their unanimous decision.
AFRICANGLOBE - Robert Reich — the former Secretary of Labor under Bill Clinton — just issued a must-read list of red flags warning us of 4 years of tyranny. Reich’s warning signs echo the actions of past tyrants, like Benito Mussolini in Italy, Adolf Hitler in Germany, Augosto Pinochet in Chile, and Francisco Franco in Spain. In listing each example of tyrannical actions, Reich cited an action taken by President-elect Donald Trump both during his campaign and after his election. Reich’s list is meant to serve as an ominous warning for Americans to stay vigilant in the face of a terrifying and unpredictable government over the next four years.
AFRICANGLOBE - Attempting to recreate and impose a misplaced post-Darwinism imagination on the rest of the world is beyond naïve. In today’s global power matrix, it is a risk that the US dare not assume will be met passively. Because it won’t. The world beyond the United States has moved on and the centrality of the United States as the axis of global power has plummeted probably beyond repair. Like Great Britain before, their era of invincible imperial domination has ended. However, like a macabre scene, the decapitated chicken runs dead with its head off causing chaos and bloodletting in its wake particularly for those who do not know that it is dead yet.
AFRICANGLOBE - The alt-right has given new vitality to white supremacism, which is not an idea but a racist ideology, and thus cannot simply be treated with counter-arguments. Once it is regarded as a political position — to be countered with rational argument — it has already implicitly been accorded a rational status. The white supremacist does not simply have an incorrect, distorted view of reality – he has a distorted view of himself.
AFRICANGLOBE - Walmart pulled a Black Lives Matter shirt and hoodie from its online store Wednesday after police accused the retailer of allegedly helping third-party sellers profit "from racial division." The hoodie and shirt that were pulled featured the slogan, "Bulletproof: Black Lives Matter," and were being sold through Walmart Marketplace, the retailer's website that features millions of items from third-party sellers.
AFRICANGLOBE -The white ringleader of a horrific sexual assault of a mentally disabled Black teen will avoid jail time and escape classification as a sex offender after pleading guilty to a lesser charge. John R.K. Howard plead guilty to one felony count of injury to a child after leading two football teammates to help him carry out a a violent sexual attack on a Black teammate with mental disabilities. Howard and Tanner Ward, along with a third student, pretended to offer the victim a hug, then held him down and sodomized him with a coat hanger. A third attacker then kicked the coat hanger several times, forcing it farther into the victim’s body and causing rectal injuries.
AFRICANGLOBE - The cable network, on a buying spree of serious-minded documentary fare of late, has embedded cameras with the KKK over the previous year in an effort to facilitate a dialogue between a handful of leaders in the hate group and members of their family who want to out. Cable and satellite network A&E has given an eight-episode order to the show, which embedded cameras with the KKK over the past year in an alleged attempt to facilitate a discussion between leaders in the group and members of their family who want to get out.
AFRICANGLOBE - During his decade as a federal prosecutor in Alabama — a state with an dark history of racism and voter suppression — Jeff Sessions embarked on a witch hunt targeting civil rights workers who were registering elderly Black voters and helping them get absentee ballots. He unsuccessfully charged three organizers, including a former aide to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., with so many counts of voter fraud that they would have served 100 year sentences if convicted.
AFRICANGLOBE - Nazi salutes. White people demanding a white “homeland.” A speaker talking about how women like to be assaulted. Glowing remarks about Adolf Hitler. This was the scene inside a conference held at a downtown Washington DC government building this past weekend. Now, more than ever, the Alt Right, the white supremacists, and the fascists, are coming out of the woodwork to try to gain currency in the policy circles in Washington DC.
AFRICANGLOBE - Donald Trump was able to tap into the angst that too many Whites felt during the Obama presidency, and he was able to win the presidency in the name of White solidarity and White supremacy. It seems incongruous that a rich, privileged, urban businessman should become the voice of the working class disgruntled, the rural neglected (Trump got 62 percent of the rural vote), and White women. But this is the new reality, the triumph of white privilege and hate rhetoric.
AFRICANGLOBE - Political commentator Danielle Moodie-Mills doesn't believe sexism played as large a role in Hillary Clinton's tragic loss as most left wing pundits have claimed. "I do not believe that this is people saying I couldn't possibly have a woman in this role," Mills said following Trump's big win. "This is so much bigger than that," she continued. "...and I will say it because I have literally nothing left to lose tonight.. this is literally white supremacy's last stand in America."
AFRICANGLOBE - In their day-after assessments of what went wrong for their candidate, liberals and progressives can be expected to advance the economic argument, the one that says it was the white people left behind in the new economy who elected Trump. But that’s just too simplistic an explanation to cover the whole reason for his victory. This did not happen simply because of economic displacement; it’s about changes in the social order.
AFRICANGLOBE - A protest by a neo-Nazi organization has taken place outside government buildings in the US state of Pennsylvania, which was met by a larger counter-rally. Dozens of members of the Nationalist Socialist Movement (NSM), an American neo-Nazi group, chanted slogans in support of white supremacy and against racial diversity in the US.
AFRICANGLOBE - A man cannot hate the whip with which he is being flogged but then be expected to love the person doing the flogging. When such a Black man, lying helpless bleeding on the ground expresses hate for the white person wielding the whip, it is only reasonable. Why must Black people educate white people on what it means to be humane? We are tired of doing that. And it’s crazy how the people closest to the oppression have to constantly explain themselves and their anger. This isn’t about you. Your opinion is not wanted. How dare you want to equate our struggle as Black people, to what you go through?
AFRICANGLOBE - A video released by a local Black Lives Matter chapter has gone viral of three Washington DC Metro Transit Police arresting and kicking to the ground a Black teenage girl because she had a bag of potato chips and a lollipop.
AFRICANGLOBE - There is no way to duck the reality that it is open season on Black men and women in America. If Trump wins, this will the Trump’s racist idea of “law and order.” Welcome to America 2016 where the biggest terror threat is coming from cops directed against Black people. Just wait for the election of Trump. The liquidation of non-whites will accelerate.
