RedEye's RoundUp

Before I type another word, I want to thank all of my followers, readers, lurkers, and contributors.  Your support continues to humble and amaze me.  If anyone is interested in becoming a contributor,  submit a righting sample to  All points of view are NOT welcome.  Meaning, red, republican, right wing contributors need not apply.  This is a blue, hard left, progressive, liberal blog.  Truth, and nothing but the truth is spoken here.  The purpose of the blog is to be a voice for voiceless and to inform the public.  If you want to promote right wing talking points and misinformation do it on your own blog.  There is no Fairness Doctrine, remember?
Now on to the Roundup:

Black On Black Crime my Donkey!
Ongoing protests against police brutality have revealed how distorted the American discourse on crime is. The biggest myth animating this discourse is black criminality: the notion that black people commit more crime, and therefore deserve more heavy-handed policing
How about some Black on Black Justice?
 A Black People’s Grand Jury in St. Louis, Missouri, this weekend delivered a “true bill of indictment” for first degree murder against former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the death of Black teenager Michael Brown. Black people “can and must take matters into our own hands,” said Omali Yeshitela, one of four prosecutors that presented evidence, not only of Wilson’s personal guilt, but the institutional culpability of the entire regional criminal justice system in the murder and subsequent whitewash of the crime.
I HOPE George Zimmerman's attorney turned CNN legal analysist, the jury, the prosecutors, the judge and the media are happy now.

You won't hear it on TeeVee or the so called mainstream media because it doesn't fit the media driven narrative, but Common's acceptance speech for winning a Golden Globe award for best original song was as the young people say, "Off the Chain".

Speaking of the mainstream media, would someone tell them they are the only ones' gushing over Christ Christi, Jeb Bush, and Mitt Romney?  Real people, not so much....
The House will vote Thursday on what Republicans are calling the "Save American Workers Act," a proposal that would make it easier for employers to cut their workers' hours and paychecks and eliminate their benefits. It's a "fix" to Obamacare that would change the definition of full-time work from 30 hours per week to 40. As the law stands, employers with 50 or more workers have to either provide insurance to 95 percent of their full-time employees or pay a fine. Republicans say that their proposal will create more full-time jobs.
Sometimes a loss is a victory
 While the Republicans continue to fight among themselves over who can do more to obstruct progress in this Country, the President continues to lead this country and carry out the will of the American people, and proves once again that there isn't a conservative in America who has ever read the Constitution.
Got popcorn?
