White Supremacist Group Tried To Protest Outside Of Maxine Waters’ Office But Got Shut All The Way Down

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has not stopped speaking out about the injustice of Trump, although the 79-year-old is continuously threatened because of it. Earlier this week, we reported how Anthony Scott Lloyd, who threatened to kill her, only received six months of home detention, three years’ probation and 100 hours of community service. He was facing up to 10 years in jail for threatening a United States official. The weak punishment condones this type of behavior and more racists tried to come for Ms. Waters, but were shut all the way down.

A White supremacist group called the Oath Keepers planned to protest outside of Waters’ office in South Los Angeles. The Oath Keepers publicized the protest online, but the two who showed up quickly sped off when they were met with diverse counter protesters. ABC News reports, “The vehicle, occupied by two men who appeared to be white, was stopped by the crowd. Some marchers opened the doors and one grabbed the flag flying on a pole in the bed of the truck, which sped off.”

ABC News also reports the” flag was stepped on and lit on fire as someone stoked the flames. A few people cheered and someone yelled, ‘This is not the American flag, this is their flag.'”

The Southern Poverty Law Center has described the Oath Keepers as “one of the largest radical antigovernment groups in the U.S. today.” It is great to see a multicultural group of people peacefully protest against this hateful group — and they clearly have more gumption than the Democratic party, who instead shamed Maxine for speaking out.

Ben Carson Basically Tells Detroit Homeless Shelter To Get Off His Back And Stop Asking For Federal Money

Ben Carson’s stint as secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has been packed with displays of his inhumanity. From a proposal to triple the rents for people in subsidized housing to countless lawsuits to telling a woman she needs to get married to get out of poverty, Carson is a heartless disaster. He continued his soulless ways with a visit to a homeless shelter in his hometown of Detroit, Michigan.

During the Obama years, homelessness in Detroit went down nearly 20 percent. But now under the Trump administration and with the threat of funding being slashed for social programs, homelessness could peak,  which is why shelters like the Mariners Inn in Detroit need federal funding.

Carson visited Mariners Inn because it receives HUD money, and they are asking for more federal money because their budget has already been slashed, according to Carina Jackson, Mariners’ chief operating officer. Carson’s response to the homeless shelter’s request for more money? He said the government can’t afford to help because they have to spend money on the military—and he told them to dig into the “private sector,” which they already do. Detroit Free Press reports he said, “There’s a lot more money in the private sector than in the government. If we continue to accumulate debt at the rate that we are right now, by the year 2048 …. every penny the government makes will be spent on servicing the debt, which won’t leave … money for any program, including military.”

Clearly, Carson does not know it is his job as secretary of Housing and Urban Development to fight for federal funding—not arrive at a homeless shelter and say, “Sorry, can’t help you,” especially when Trump plans to spend millions of dollars on a military parade in November. CNN.com reports the “estimated ” cost of the parade will be a whooping $12 million.

Furthermore, if Carson is pushing the homeless off to the private sector, why doesn’t he donate a few million? Put your money where your callous heart is, Ben.

Black Twitter Is Divided Over Michael B. Jordan’s Swirly Italian Vacation

Celebrity Sightings in Philadelphia - March 28, 2018

Oh the drama!

Recently, Michael B. Jordan was spotted on a boat during his Italian vacation surrounded by three bikini-clad white women…and of course, Black Twitter damn near exploded!

So much so, that the “Black Panther” actor made a video trying to reassure his fans that he likes all “milk, I like chocolate milk, I like almond milk, strawberry milk,”and even “cinnamon toast crunch milk.” That, and he said Italy just doesn’t have a lot of Black women. *insert side-eye*

Not surprisingly, his explanation didn’t help his case, leaving his fans even more divided then before. See for yourself how the debate unfolded on social media.

Man Inappropriately Touched By Cop During Abusive Stop-And-Frisk In Washington D.C., Lawsuit Says

A man who was fondled during a police stop in Washington, D.C. has spoken out against the disgusting actions of one cop. The story prompted the American Civil Liberties Union of the District Of Columbia to file a lawsuit Wednesday, July 18.

Metropolitan Police Department Officer Sean Lojacono initiated an “unconstitutional and exceedingly invasive bodily search” during an encounter with M.B. Cottingham, a 39-year-old man, last September, the ACLU said in the suit. There was no warrant, reasonable suspicion or probable cause why Lojacono stopped Cottingham, who was treated inhumanely, he said.

“I’ve never been so humiliated in my life,” Cottingham, a Washington, D.C. resident and ice cream vendor, said. “It’s bad enough that members of my community are stopped and frisked by the police all the time. I’ve been frisked many times and even beaten by police. But this officer treated me like I’m not even a human being.”

Officers confronted Cottingham and his friends who were standing on a sidewalk.  The men were asked if they had weapons; they didn’t have any, they said. Lojacono later began patting down Cottingham who offered to comply with the procedure after showing a small and legal amount of marijuana to the officer. The pat-down bordered on sexual abuse when Lojacono put his fingers in the man’s anus and between the man’s buttocks, as well as grabbing his scrotum through his sweatpants. Cottingham verbally protested before he was handcuffed and subjected to more horrific touching.

The incident traumatized Cottingham, who felt physical pain in the probed areas; he also has ongoing anxiety, depression and fear of being in public. He had to miss work for a month after the encounter.

Video of the stop-and-frisk incident was shocking.

“It looked like it was an inappropriate touching by the officer,” MPD Chief Peter Newsham said at a July 12 D.C. Council community policing hearing.

Cottingham’s Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures was violated, the ACLU asserted in the suit.Read more: https://newsone.com/3818034/stop-and-frisk-washington-dc-aclu-lawsuit/

You Must Be Crazy: Black Republican Tim Scott Praises Trump On Foreign Policy

We already knew Tim Scott, the lone Black Republican in the U.S. Senate who represents South Carolina, was off his rocker when he went on a bizarre victory tour over the tax bill with Ivanka Trump. But Scott has now hit Ben Carson levels of foolishness — he is actually praising Trump for foreign policy.

According to Politico, while talking to Fox News (of course it would be Fox News) about Trump’s closed-door meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Scott said, “I have confidence that what happened in the meeting is in the best interests of the country.” Really? Apparently, Trump doesn’t even know the difference between “would” and “wouldn’t” and he has more faith in a Russian dictator than his own intelligence agencies in America.

But Scott didn’t stop there, he continued, “We elected the president; he has to be our leader on global affairs, foreign affairs. So far, so good. We have to let him do what he is doing, and be in a position to hold him accountable if we find something has gone off the rails.” Scott can’t even hold Trump accountable for being a racist. Back in March, Scott said he wasn’t even “aware” of Trump’s racism.

How can Scott praise Trump on foreign policy when John McCain said Trump’s meeting with Putin “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory” and “a tragic mistake”? He also said Trump proved to be “unwilling to stand up to Putin” and slammed 45 for “speaking from the ‘same script'” as Putin and that he made a “conscious choice to defend a tyrant.”

Tim Scott has made a conscious choice to defend a racist. Deplorable.
