Why We’re Capitalizing Black


The Times has changed its style on the term’s usage to better reflect a shared cultural identity. Here’s what led to that decision.
... “It seems like such a minor change, black versus Black,” The Times’s National editor, Marc Lacey, said. “But for many people the capitalization of that one letter is the difference between a color and a culture.” ...

The New York Times: Why We’re Capitalizing Black (By Nancy Coleman)

 
Officer, tell us what you really think

‘We are just gonna go out and start slaughtering them’: Three cops fired after racist talk of killing black residents


Thanks to @SejaDia for the original post

Sitting in his patrol car in Wilmington, N.C., Officer Michael “Kevin” Piner predicted Black Lives Matter protests would soon lead to civil war. “I’m ready,” Piner told another officer, adding that he planned to buy an assault rifle. [emphasis mine]

[These fuckers are planning -- hoping -- for another civil war. This is Trump's little "army", the result of his stochastic terrorism.]

“We are just going to go out and start slaughtering them f------ n------,” he said.

The shocking threat came amid extended, openly racist conversations between Piner, 44, and two other police officers, 50-year-old Cpl. Jesse E. Moore II, and 48-year-old Officer James “Brian” Gilmore. In the discussions, taped by accident on a patrol car camera and released Wednesday by the department, the men freely drop racial slurs, suggest killing black residents and deride protesters.

“Wipe 'em off the f------ map,” Piner said of African Americans. “That’ll put 'em back about four or five generations.”

[These are your police, USA. They're almost as bad as your president.]

How can you get a fair shake when the Cop Gang has all the authority?

Andres ran down the driveway, got on his knees and put his hands behind his head. Then 1 Cop shot him in the back 7 times. They broke all the cameras and took the DVR, which they pulled a warrant for after the fact.

Matt Gaetz Targets U.S. Soccer Anthem Kneeling With Potentially Unconstitutional Legislation

"If you’re surprised to be reading the words 'Matt Gaetz' and 'U.S. Soccer' together, you’re probably not alone. The second-term Republican congressman from Florida’s 1st district admits he is not a well-versed fan of the game."

"But circumstances have conspired to bring the 38-year-old politician and the Beautiful Game together. In the wake of growing outrage over the death of George Floyd at the hand of Minneapolis police, and amid growing public acceptance of the Black Lives Matter movement, the U.S. Soccer Federation on Tuesday reversed its three-year-old policy prohibiting players from kneeling during the anthem to protest police brutality."

"That news, in his own words, 'triggered' Gaetz into announcing Friday he would draft legislation to force the USSF to go back on that policy change or face financial consequences."

Quote of note:

"We can count on Russian operatives to fill social media with deceptive, divisive messages. But it was American police officers who shot Tamir Rice while he played in a park, killed Breonna Taylor in her own home and asphyxiated George Floyd outside a convenience store. The wounds Russia keeps pouring salt on are American-made."

Quote of note:

"Our nation is moving toward two societies, one black, one white—separate and unequal. What white Americans have never fully understood but what the Negro can never forget — is that white society is deeply implicated in the ghetto. White institutions created it, white institutions maintain it, and white society condones it."

- The Kerner Commission Report told us basically the fundamental systemic racial inequities in America created these problems.

We've been here before. Amerika.

"The long, hot summer of 1967 refers to the 159 race riots that erupted across the United States in 1967. In June there were riots in Atlanta, Boston, Cincinnati, Buffalo, and Tampa. In July there were riots in Birmingham, Chicago, New York City, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, New Britain, Rochester, Plainfield, and Toledo."

"The most destructive riots of the summer took place in July, in Newark, New Jersey, and Detroit, Michigan. As a result of the rioting in the summer of 1967 and the preceding two years, President Lyndon B. Johnson established the Kerner Commission to investigate the rioting and urban issues of Black Americans."

On the Media takes on the cops

No Justice, No Peace

In the midst of a historic week of protests, the national conversation about police is quickly transforming. This week, On the Media looks at the language used here and abroad to describe the "civil unrest" in America. Then, we explore how decades of criminal justice policy decisions brought us to this boiling point. Plus, are human beings, against all odds, actually pretty decent?

1. Karen Attiah [@KarenAttiah], The Washington Post Global Opinions Editor, on how our media would cover American police brutality protests if they were happening abroad. Listen.

2. Elizabeth Hinton [@elizabhinton], historian at Yale University, on the historical roots of American law enforcement. Listen.

3. Rutger Bregman [@rcbregman], author of Humankind: A Hopeful History, on what our policies would like if we believed in the decency of people. Listen.
Full episode (mp3).

Excellent, as per usual.
Bootnote: You might recall Bregman from his 2019 Davos appearance demanding billionaires pay their taxes or his unaired Fox News confrontation with propagandist Tucker Carlson.
