"My name is Earl". But you already knew that.

I know that when y'all first heard the story of the poor brotha down in Florida (Where else? )being arrested 62 times for trespassing WHERE HE WORKS, you all thought that it was a joke. ("Oh, here we go again. Those blacks making up stories about racism where racism doesn't exist.")

But, sadly, "in color aroused" America, where "stop- and- frisk" has become the norm, and where the rights of poor people and people of color pale in comparison to those who occupy the halls of power, (I see you Trey Radel)  occurrences like this have become the new normal.

I can't imagine what I would do if the po po stopped and harassed me over 258 times. (Once a week over a four year period). They harassed this poor brotha like it was a part of their job description. Service revolver?  Check. Roll Call? Check. Daily briefing? Check. Start routine patrol? Check. Go and harass Earl Sampson at the convenience store? Check. I mean I know that we all look alike, but dyaam!

I worry about people like Earl Sampson as well. I hope this is not typical of the Negro in places like Florida. Have the system beaten them down so much that they don't even realize when their rights are being trampled upon? Because honestly, if folks start viewing this kind of injustice as normal, then we have an even bigger problem on our hands.

I am just thankful that the man's boss (my FNOTD) recognizes injustice.

"They ask him, 'What are you doing here?'" recalled Saleh. "He said, 'I work here.' The clerk said he works here. I said, 'I'm the owner, let him go. I work here.' The officer said, 'Yeah right.'
"So he has more power than me!"

According to Saleh, it doesn't stop there.

In addition to video appearing to show Sampson being grabbed by an officer while taking out the trash and at another time searched against a wall, Saleh accuses them of searching throughout his store without a warrant.

They're just stopping anybody who walks in the city or who comes into my store," argued Saleh. "You can't violate people's rights just by standing in front of a business. You have no right to pull me against the wall and search me and question me for no reason."
Welcome to America Mr. Saleh.  Now if you want equal rights you better work harder, get a bigger store, and move it out of that neighborhood.

Here in the land of [only some] are free, rights are not exactly equal.

I am sorry you had to learn this way, but I am even more sorry for your employee.

I know math is hard for you but Miami Gardens is 2.6% non-Hispanic white, 22% Hispanic, and it's 76% black. The municipality, which was only incorporated in 2003, is the largest black majority city in Florida.

Earl Sampson should really take it up with mayor Gilbert, or city manager Cameron Benson, or police chief matthew boyd, or legal advisor tiffany Britton, or Major Alfred Lewers the operations commander of the police. Miami gardens police are just as black as the city itself.

A bit disingenuous to leave out the fact that all of this occurred in a black majority city with a black police commissioner and black police force?

Some things the house Negro will never understand:

it doesn't matter what color the HNIC is. The structure still exists for inequality.

The real tragedy is that this poor dude was programmed to accept his misfortune.

"it doesn't matter what color the HNIC"

Does it matter, what color the cops are? What color 3/4 residents of the city are? If a black police force led by a black police commissioner is harassing a single black man in a city that is 76% black, maybe it has to do with a specific grudge and not "color arousal" or "racism" or any race card sociological gobble-de-gook you believe in. 76% of the city is black.

Zero Tolerance Zones... hmm. I'm looking into data about Miami Gardens.

Apparently, businesses can sign up to become a Zero Tolerance Zone authorizing police to stop, question, search, and eject or arrest anyone on the store premises that has been determined by them to be there unnecessarily.

Perhaps they had it in for this young man. When FN says, "The real tragedy is that this poor dude was programmed to accept his misfortune. "

I have to wonder what Earl Sampson can do about it.

Saleh signed his store up to be a Zero Tolerance Zone, now he's realizing just how much harassment his customers and employees face and how little he can do about it.

BTW, Field, is there a connection between "stop-and-frisk/arrest" numbers and homeland security $$$ available to municipalities?

For the better part of a quarter of a century so-called "good" black men have allowed the rap/hip hop industry to portray black men and boys as baby daddies who abandon their children, thugs, drug dealers and various kinds of sociopaths. The end result: a black man being stopped and frisked or even arrested repeatedly on his way to work.

The solution is that the rap/hip hop industry must be destroyed. And, of course, black men and boys have to stop living up (or down) to the stereotypes.

Note: Don't forget that this same rap/hip hop industry portrays black women and girls as "bitches" and "whores".

We could have blacks file a form from the government for a 'free negro pass'. Of course they will have to demonstrate their respectability.

Since a black person cannot reach into their coat or pocket without being thought of as reaching for a weapon, this 'free negro pass' should be worn on their sleeve.

This would help prevent police and vigilantes from accidentally murdering good black folk.

Miami Gardens Mayor Oliver Gilbert states: “The line is Zero Tolernace, if you break the law, you’re going to jail.”

You bozo Mayor Gilbert! It’s truly something special to witness when mere factotums of this Devilocracy that we have, attempt to explain their intent. Their narrative never fits the story at hand. I have a memo for you Mayor. Why don’t you implement a zero tolerance for police misconduct, zero tolerance for harassing certain citizens, zero tolerance for incompetent police officers, zero tolerance for administrative malfeasance, zero tolerance for hiring Hitlerian type officers, zero tolerance for Gestapo tactics racist leaning cops, zero tolerance for house-negro-police-administrators, etc.

Damn, bozo Mayor Gilbert says that if you break the law, you’re going to jail. Oh well, … I guess Earl Sampson was presumed to be guilty of going to work and putting in 8 strong hours and subsequently arrested for that as well. By the way, who called the cops, Earl’s employer didn’t call the cops???

These two-dollar clown officials never explained why he was arrested. I’m waiting, … ..tick, tock, tick, toc ……

Have you read black woman attorney Michelle Alexander's book "The New Jim Crow"? She says in her book that 80% of black men in the Chicago area are FELONS. Yes, you read that correctly.

The nightmare (large numbers of black males who have been convicted of felony level crimes) which has unfolded in Chicago is probably true of most urban areas with large black populations: think Detroit, New Orleans, Baltimore, Gary, Memphis, Cleveland, etc.

Yes, whites stereotyped blacks prior to the rap era BUT the rap/hip hop industry has made this problem worse.

Note: If 80% of black men in Chicago are felons, the "stereotype" of black criminality is no longer a "stereotype". The stereotype has become true.

Read Michelle Alexander's book for yourself. She is not a black man basher. She is a black woman attorney who actually thinks that most of the blacks currently behind bars shouldn't be there.

Field, "The real tragedy is that this poor dude was programmed to accept his misfortune."

No, brother Field, you are wrong. The REAL tragedy is he was programmed while other Blacks stood by and watched and DID NOTHING!

And that, brother Field, is the HUGE TRAGEDY of being part of a race where NO ONE is there to help one another. We are a DO NOTHING-EVERYBODY FOR HIMSELF RACE. Hence, injustice can pick us off, one-by-one because we lack power and political clout. It makes me sick.

The Police Chief, the City Attorney, the deputy police chief, in a city with 76% Blacks, would ALL be GONE "IF" Blacks cared enough about each other. BUT WE DON'T. And that city of Blacks is no different politically than the Philadelphia, jokingly called the city of brotherly love.

BTW Field, what are YOU doing about the injustices against us? Seeing how you are a lawyer, it seems to me you ought to be "knee-deep" in that so-called 'justice system' administering injustices by the boatload to our peeps. But you are not. WHY?

But those numbers count only those who were jailed for a crime. In 2003, more than twice as many whites as blacks were arrested and charged with a crime, according to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reports.

Of 9.5 million offenses charged, 6.7 million whites were arrested, compared to 2.5 million blacks.

The most common crimes were drug abuse violations, resulting in arrest of 770,430 whites and 381,006 blacks.

Whites were far more likely to be arrested driving under the influence. Of 998,035 total offenses, 877,810 of those arrested where whites.

Whites also were most often arrested for motor vehicle theft, arson, other assaults, fraud, embezzlement, dealing in stolen property, vandalism, weapons charges, prostitution, sex offenses, crimes against families and children, liquor laws, drunkenness, disorderly conduct, vagrancy, curfew and loitering, suspicion, as runaways and all other offenses not including traffic.


So should we stereotype whites because they do committ more crimes.

But, Pilot Dumbass, there are six times as many whites as blacks.

Therefore, in order to make your point valid, six times as many whites should have been arrested and charge, not twice as many.

By your own statistics, blacks are three times as likely to commit a crime as whites.

When it comes to murder, blacks commit over half of all murders when, again, they are less than a sixth of the population.

Math is not your strong point. Better stick to serving peanuts.

No I made my point very clearly, more crimes are committed by whites. Are we disputing this fact? That means on the whole if a crime is committed chances are it is committed by a white person. Statistics be damned, now can we get on with the stereotyping or as the data suggests are you too busy molesting a child?

Bryan Ortez said...

looking at data on public schools it seems most of their schools are not doing well. At the elementary level their scores are B and C.. At the middle school level their scores are all D's.

They have two high schools.

Miami Carol City High School has a C grade and a graduation rate of 72%. Before integration it was also the high school for black students.

Miami Norland Senior High has an A grade and a graduation rate over 90%. It was the school for whites before integration. Rachel Jeantel graduated from this high school, key witness in George Zimmermans case. Both schools are majority black today.

Education levels of residents are highest in high school graduate or less.. fewer people with bachelor degrees than national average.

A majority of the population were born within the state of Florida. They are also younger than the average American.

Employment is greatest in Sales and Office and Service industries. Very few Management jobs

Household incomes are on the lower end, but not too bad. Average household income is $39,403 compared to average overall for the entire US, $50,935.

Unemployment is slightly higher than the national average.

With 110,000 residents, their population density is pretty high at 5,634 people per square mile. Population density often is an underlying commonality between higher rates of crime between places.

violent crimes have decreased in recent years as well as property crimes.

Just trying to paint a better picture of Miami Gardens.

Actually, YOU STUPID FCUK, you don't extrapolate UP to make a statistical point unless you're "bending" statistics to fit your racist ass agenda, just like crackes like you ALWAYS do.

Based on the population and the numbers cited by Pilot, the 2.5 million crimes committed by Blacks is not that much higher than you would "expect" based on Black representation in the population. And given how Blacks are FAR more likely to be FALSELY charged AND convicted, the true numbers will NEVER be known.

Put another way, people like you have:

1) The highest NUMBERS of criminals.

2) The highest NUMBERS of abortions.

3) The highest NUMBERS of STD's.

4) The greatest NUMBERS of mass murders in the history of man.

5) And by you're very own example, the highest NUMBERS of idiots.

And the NEXT time you want to fcuk around with stats, make sure there's not a former Epidemiologist among those highly educated Blacks you aren't smart enough to get into an academic conversation with.

I have Michelle Alexander's book 'The New Jim Crow' in front of me. On page 184 (hardcover copy), I quote "The total population of black males in Chicago with a felony record (including both current and ex-felon) is equivalent to 55% of the black adult male population and an astonishing 80% of the adult black male workforce in the Chicago area".

I concede that the aforementioned sentence is somewhat confusing. So I wrote it word for word. How do you interpret the above sentence?
