Chicago Cops Use Social Media to Track Grieving Families of Gunshot Victims

Only naive people are surprised…..

It was below freezing in Chicago on December 12, 2017 when a 23-year-old man was fatally shot in the abdomen while standing on the sidewalk. In the days following the victim’s death, the Chicago Police Department (CPD) gathered information about the victim on social media. Documents obtained by OneZero indicate that the CPD also went one step further, collecting social media content from individuals who were publicly mourning and grieving for the loss of the 23-year-old man. “I can’t stop crying…” one of the posts collected by the CPD reads, “why would this happen.” Continue reading

Why would we listen to anyone else but us when it comes to the health of us?? We have no allies and even some of “us” mean us no good…

Black men have the lowest life expectancy of any ethnic group in the United States. Much of the gap is explained by greater rates of chronic illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease, which afflict poor and poorly educated black men in particular.

But why is that? Lack of insurance? Lack of access to health care? Continue reading

Black kids need their own school system and this man is getting it done

Big ups to my man Marcus Kline!

When I first heard about Marcus Kline, co-founder of Freedom Home Academy International, I knew that he is a man making history.  The problem of educating black youth is one that has been made complicated by analysts who swear that it can’t be done.  But this belief that black kids can’t learn is one of those racial myths driven by the fact that people are quick to give up on them.

I interviewed Marcus about his school and what he’s doing and the interview is below.  What’s also important to understand is that the black education problem can be solved in one very simple way:  Raise money in the black community to put a school like the one being run by Marcus in every black community in America.

You see?  It’s easy. Problem solved.
