The Wake Up Latest Explosion Likely Linked To Austin Bombings HBCU Slammed By Tornado ‘Copwatch’ Program To Monitor Police

Explosions Continue In Texas

The package that exploded overnight at a FedEx facility in Texas may have been in the process of being sent to an address in Austin, the same city where four other packages have exploded, killing two and injuring others this month. The FBI said they were all linked, CNN reported.

“We suspect it is related to our investigation,” FBI San Antonio spokeswoman Michelle Lee told CNN in reference to the bombings that began March 2.

BREAKING: ATF confirms there was an explosion inside a FedEx facility overnight about 65 miles from Austin, Texas; no injuries have been reported

While the first two explosions killed two Black people and injured another, as well as an elderly Hispanic woman, the victims in Sunday night’s blast were White, altering the narrative that the attacks could be racially motivated. There were no injuries at the Fed Ex facility.

The overnight explosion is likely to give law enforcement an increased sense of urgency – one that seemed to be missing following the earlier explosions. Law enforcement has neither named a suspect nor a motive. However, there are at least 27 hate groups in Texas. Officials have yet to call this an act of terrorism, but the attempted use of FedEx to deliver an explosive may change that.

Massive Alabama Tornado Slams HBCU

A tornado hit Jacksonville State University hard Monday night, leaving its campus in Jacksonville, Alabama, looking like a “war zone,” a state trooper told Fox News. The historically Black college was on Spring Break, so most students were not affected, but there was “major roof damage” to the school’s athletic arena, Pete Mathews Coliseum.

Photos quickly emerged on social media showing the extent of the damage as well as an image purportedly of the mammoth tornado descending on the town.

Like Father Like Son Donald Trump Jr Almost Left His Pregnant Wife For Aubrey O’Day

He is just like his daddy! Donald Trump Jr., 40, is reportedly getting a divorce from wife Vanessa Trump, who he has been married to since November of 2005. Last week, Page Six reported, “Donald Trump Jr. and his wife, Vanessa Trump, are struggling through marital problems and friends say they are heading for divorce.” The outlet continued, “One source told us, ‘The problems have been there for a long time, the couple had hoped to stay together during the president’s time in office, but it is getting harder to resolve their issues. He’s never there.'”

Well, one of those problems appear to be former Danity Kane member and reality star Aubrey O’Day. Page Six is now reporting that Donald Jr. nearly left his wife, who was pregnant with their third child, Tristan, for Aubrey, “Years before Vanessa Trump filed for divorce from Donald Trump Jr., their marriage was rocked when — around the time she was pregnant with their third child — he cheated on her with a contestant from The Celebrity Apprentice.” The site continued, “Page Six has exclusively learned that Don Jr. — then a so-called ‘adviser’ on the NBC show — fell for busty Danity Kane star Aubrey O’Day while filming Celebrity Apprentice in 2011.”

Reportedly, Donald pursued Aubrey, claiming the marriage was already over. Allegedly, “sources say that the pair would meet up in various cities during their fling and wrote each other love notes.” However, his family “pressured” him to stay in his marriage — and his daddy told him to “knock it  off.” But Jr. clearly learned from Sr., who famously cheated on his first wife Ivana Trump with Marla Maples, who he eventually married  — he dumped Ivana in 1992 and married Marla in 1993.

Aubrey has not commented on the report, but  this does not seem far-fetched, considering on election night in 2016, O’Day tweeted, “my story I didn’t tell is worth millions now.”

It’s Official The Trump Administration Will ‘Seek The Death Penalty’ For Drug Dealers

Back on February 28, we reported Donald Trump‘s idea of stopping drug crimes was to give drug dealers the death penalty. According to, “Five sources who’ve spoken with Trump about the subject, he often leaps into a passionate speech about how drug dealers are as bad as serial killers and should all get the death penalty.” Trump is allegedly inspired by Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, who has executed 10,000 drug dealers and drugs users in the past two years   These executions are taking place on the street and, reportedly, the police are killing more people than the criminals.

Today, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions released a statement backing Trump’s violent policy, saying, “Drug dealers show no respect for human dignity and put their own greed ahead of the safety and even the lives of others. He also added that the Justice Department “will continue to aggressively prosecute drug traffickers and we will use federal law to seek the death penalty wherever appropriate.” See the full statement below:

This language is terrifying, but Trump has already been empowering prosecutors to charge dealers with a capital crime.

“Law enforcement outfits in 20 states are authorized to pursue ‘drug-induced homicide’ charges when a given overdose can be connected back to the point of sale, and other states provide slightly more roundabout ways to charge a dealer with a capital crime,” Think Progress reported.

This is particularly horrific for the Black community. Black men receive harsher sentences for drug crimes due to the “war on drugs” and the 1994 crime reform bill.

“African Americans represent 12.5% of illicit drug users, but 29% of those arrested for drug offenses and 33% of those incarcerated in state facilities for drug offenses,” according to the NAACP. If the Black community is disproportionately incarcerated, then we would be disproportionately murdere

Report Wealthy Black Boys Have A Greater Chance Of Living In Poverty Than Middle Class White Boys

A new and sad study explores the cryptic intersections of class and race. Via a research group from Stanford University, Harvard University, the Census Bureau and other prestigious organizations, it was concluded that white boys who grow up rich typically remained wealthy as adults. However, Black boys who grew up rich were far more likely to become poor in 99% of the U.S.

The researchers compared 10,000 American men now in their late 30s, split evenly between white and Black,  revealing that  approximately 20 percent of the Black men who grew up rich became poor as an adult; only 17 percent of Black men who grew up rich remained rich. For white men, 39 percent remained rich, and only 10 percent became poor. Ibram Kendi, a professor and director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University, told the New York Times, “One of the most popular liberal post-racial ideas is the idea that the fundamental problem is class and not race, and clearly this study explodes that idea, but for whatever reason, we’re unwilling to stare racism in the face.”

The numbers were not the same for Black and white girls. Reportedly, their eventual earnings were even, the NYT explained, “While Black women also face negative effects of racism, Black men often experience racial discrimination differently. As early as preschool, they are more likely to be disciplined in school. They are pulled over or detained and searched by police officers more often.”

These stark numbers can be attributed to structural racism. “The research makes clear that there is something unique about the obstacles Black males face. The gap between Hispanics and whites is narrower, and their incomes will converge within a couple of generations if mobility stays the same. Asian-Americans earn more than whites raised at the same income level, or about the same when first-generation immigrants are excluded. Only Native Americans have an income gap comparable to African-Americans. But the disparities are widest for Black boys.”

Hopefully,  this study can dismiss the notion that poverty trumps race. Sadly, racism still affects the everyday lives of people from education to heath to wages.

Church and Vote Georgia GOP Trying To Stop Black Worshippers From Praising Candidates At Polls

Civil rights organizations have sounded the alarm again on voter suppression. This time, Georgia Republicans are trying to pass a bill that would put an end to Black parishioners voting early either before or after they have attended church services in Atlanta. Yes, they want a Suppression Sunday.

But there’s more to the story: GOP lawmakers want to also reduce the number of evening hours that voters can head to the polls.  The majority-Republican House Governmental Affairs Committee approved Senate Bill 363 on Wednesday, saying that polling places should close at 7 p.m. instead of 8 p.m., and that voting should be limited to only one weekend day, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

This move, opposed by the committee’s five Democrats, is undoubtedly controversial.

“Curtailing” #voting based on race is illegal.

“The bill curtails Sunday voting after Repubs complained that it gave advantage to Dems, where #BLK churches could drive turnout.”

We must make #Democracy work!@NAACP@NAACP_LDF@LawyersComm@adv_project

“The impact of this bill is to eliminate the extra hour of voting opportunity that’s been granted to city of Atlanta voters,” Democratic Rep. Mary Margaret Oliver, who represents Decatur, said. “So this is anti-voting rights for Atlanta.”

The bill will stop African-American voters, who make up the majority of the city’s population, from turning out in droves as part of Souls to the Polls events, a voter mobilization effort for Sunday voting in Georgia. Curtailing voting hours is also out-of-sync with Georgia regulations.

Atlanta can keep its precincts open until 8 p.m. for municipal elections, according to a state law passed in the 1970s.

Voting must be allowed on Saturdays for elections with state or federal candidates, but Sunday polling has been a hot-button issue. Georgia Republicans have been against Sunday voting since at least 2014, the year that DeKalb County extended early voting hours to include the Sunday before Election Day, according to Think Progress.

If the bill passes, activists will most likely be coming in full force against GOP legislators. They, along with Democrats, may
