Hello Everyone, Annihilate means to reduce to utter ruin or nonexistence; destroy utterly. This word is so close to what is happening to Blacks in America, especially the Black male, the seed. When you annihilate the seed it is over. You have nothing to plant and if there is nothing to plant then there is nothing to grow. The male carries the seed and instead of the Black males being fruitful and multiplying as God commanded, they are being annihilated, reduced in numbers so much so that they are almost non existence. If they are not being killed they are being enslaved to the prison industry complex, to the capitalistic society and TV and all of its brainwashing. It not these it is the system of this world whose agenda is to continue to tear away at the minds so much so that they, Black males, doesn’t even understand nor recognize the powerful potential they have and must use it to help build up himself and his family. The continuation of the intent to annihilate the Black males must be stopped and as a people it has to start with us. God has provided us with all we need and all we have to do is to use what we have. We have the power to do what has been done let’s do it with the power God has given us.

EDITORIAL/OPINION Blackonomics: Just How Blind Are We? By James Clingman NNPA News Wire Columnist Gil Scott-Heron once asked: “Just how blind will America be? The world is on the edge of its seat; defeat on the horizon, very surprisin’, that we all can see the plot and claim that we cannot. Just how blind America?” Today, forty years later, we ask, “Just how blind will Black America be?” We should be able to see the plot, but many claim they cannot. We are heading down the same political road that got us into our current condition of political impotence and irrelevance. The next election and all of its current hoopla exposes the continuous game being played not only on Black America but on America in general. Any discerning person can see it. Unfortunately, much of our discernment is invested in “The lives of …,” “The Housewives of …” and all the other nonsense many of our people watch religiously. We are too busy living vicariously through the TV lives of other folks who are paid to carry on a bunch of foolishness, to curse one another out, to threaten one another, and to insult one another. We are blind to our own demise right now; but when October 2016 rolls around we will be in a frenzy of registering to vote, albeit uninformed and ill-prepared to face the ensuing four years of the same mistreatment and neglect we have suffered under previous political administrations. Political candidates said, “Game on!” months ago, and the best we are able to muster are a few demonstrations, disruptions, and discussions about whether or not our lives matter to them. We have asked candidates what they are going do in response to our plight, but we have not made appropriate and commensurate demands in that regard. In other words, we have a lot of rhetoric but no substantive reciprocal relationships with any of the candidates. In all the debates thus far there was one question pertaining to Black folks; it came from a Black man, CNN’s Don Lemon, who selected the ridiculous question, “Do Black lives matter ‘or’ do all lives matter? The question was silly and meaningless; the candidates’ answer was to ignore the question. Political candidates know that Black lives did not matter when 2000 Nigerians were slaughtered in the Baga Massacre in Nigeria, which took place the same time as the twelve Charlie Hebdo murders.
They know that the 147 students killed at Kenya’s Garissa University in April 2015 did not matter, but the 132 killed in Paris do matter. Want more? They knew that the lives of 985,000 Tutsis in Rwanda did not matter during that massacre in 1994-1995. They know, and we know as well, that Black lives do not matter in “Chiraq” and other cities where we are killing one another. So why ask that dumb question? Just how blind will Black America be? As we are led down the primrose path by the likes of “pleaders” rather than real leaders, as we buy-in to their sell-out of Black people in exchange for a few crumbs from their master’s table, the speed of our headlong plunge to the bottom increases exponentially. Can’t you see, Black America? It matters not who lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue; you have been and are being played. You are being duped with your eyes wide open. Right now many Black folks are arguing about Hillary, Carson, and Trump, as though we have some power to determine our own political destiny rather than one of them being in charge of it. Here’s the point. As Brother Gil Scott-Heron suggested, even though it’s obvious that our elected officials will do whatever they want to do, legal or illegal, on our behalf or not, we turn a blind eye to it rather than changing the political game and playing it to win. If you would listen to The H2O Gate Blues, The Bicentennial Blues, The New Deal, and We Beg Your Pardon, you will see that forty years ago he told us what the political deal was; we would not listen then and we are still blind to the realities of political chicanery. Just how blind will Black America remain, y’all? Our political engagement must be pragmatic; it must be for real, not some childish game where candidates are free to simply ignore us as they seek our so-called “precious” votes. Our political dilemma has never been the lack of a “Black” President, no more than it was in the 60’s and 70’s when we thought it was a lack of Black politicians. Our problem was and is our lack of political involvement beyond voting, our failure to build political power based on an economic power base, and our reliance on political symbolism over political substance. “How much more evidence do the citizens need; that the election was sabotaged by trickery and greed?” – The H2O Gate Blues James Clingman is the nation’s most prolific writer on economic empowerment for Black people. His latest book, Black Dollars Matter! Teach your dollars how to make more sense, is available on his website, www.Blackonomics.com.
Dr. Ben Carson and the Lessons from Clarence Thomas By Bill Fletcher, Jr. NNPA Columnist I will never forget the debate that engulfed Black America at the time of the nomination of Clarence Thomas to the US Supreme Court. On the one side was the fact of his conservative record and his not having any semblance of a history as a staunch advocate for African American rights. On the other hand, he was (and remains) genetically a person of African descent. There were those who argued, quite forcefully, that the mere fact of his being genetically a person of African descent should be the deciding factor in whether to support him because, as was argued at the time, the moment that he had the job security of a Supreme Court appointment, African Americans could count on him to do the right thing. How terribly wrong this analysis proved to be. Since the appointment of Justice Thomas there has been little, if any, indication that his genetic connection to Black America has translated into decisions in favor of Black America. Justice Thomas has repeatedly sided against the interests of the majority of Black America, and actually, he has been quite unapologetic about it. Which bring us to Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson. I am already hearing those who wish to make excuses for him or to refrain from criticisms. There are those who are so appropriately proud of what he has accomplished as a neurosurgeon that they are—inappropriately—prepared to turn a blind eye to the policies that he advocates, not to mention some
of the observations that he has offered. Yet, one does not have to dig too deeply to see that his politics are extremely right-wing and that he is prepared to regularly take stands that deny the extent—if not the reality—of the racist oppression under which Black America continues to exist. Carson has pleased Fox News and the Tea Party in his condemnation of #BlackLivesMatter and the movement for Black Lives, accusing #BlackLivesMatter of bullying. He has also participated in the demonization of the late Michael Brown, killed by the Ferguson Police. What is that about? He has compared the Affordable Health Act (“Obamacare”) to slavery. How can anyone in their right mind make a comparison between chattel slavery and a piece of legislation that has increased healthcare for more than seventeen million people? Carson actually goes beyond Justice Thomas in his, let’s say, unusual behavior. It is not just that Carson sides against Black America, but that he also seems to feel that he can say whatever is on his mind. The recent exchange about the Egyptian Pyramids is an example. His conclusion that the Pyramids were built by Joseph for the storing of grain has no scientific basis, yet this Presidential candidate seems to feel unconstrained by science, research, and, indeed, by the truth. As we get deeper into the election season it is important to keep these points in mind. One can always hope that Dr. Carson rediscovers the realities facing Black America, but the smart money actually suggests the opposite.

EDUCATION & COMMUNITY NEWS Chicago Calm a Day after Release of Video of Police Shooting Teenager By Mary Wisniewski (REUTERS)—The white Chicago policeman charged with murdering a black teenager he shot 16 times spent his first full day in custody on Wednesday in a jail hospital ward, as calm prevailed in a city braced for civil unrest over new video footage of the slaying. Protests were mostly small and peaceful on Tuesday and Wednesday following the release of a graphic clip showing 17-year-old Laquan McDonald being gunned down in the middle of a street on Oct. 20, 2014, as he was walking away from police who had confronted him. The tape, recorded from a dashboard-mounted camera in one of several patrol cars arriving on the scene, was made public on Tuesday under court order hours after the officer who fired the fatal volley of gunshots, Jason Van Dyke, was charged with first-degree murder. Investigation of the case comes amid a national debate on race and police tactics sparked by a series of high-profile killings of unarmed black men at the hands of mainly white law enforcement in several U.S. cities in the past two years, leading to widespread demonstrations and some violent unrest. Late on Wednesday, the Chicago Tribune newspaper reported it had exclusively obtained video footage from the dashboard cameras of five police vehicles that were on the scene. Those tapes include the one widely shown on Tuesday, which provides the most complete coverage of the shooting released to date. There is also footage taken from four other squad cars, including Van Dyke's vehicle, that were on the scene, the Tribune said. None of those four tapes show the moment McDonald was shot. The Tribune also said that, like
Reuters / Wednesday, November 25, 2015 Protesters demonstrate in response to the fatal shooting of Laquan McDonald in Chicago, November 25, 2015. REUTERS/Andrew Nelles the original video made public, the new tapes all lack any discernible audio that should have been included - a shortcoming police have previously attributed to unspecified technical problems. The additional videos were furnished to the Tribune by Mayor Rham Emanuel's Law Department under an open-records request for footage from all eight police vehicles present at the shooting. Tapes from three vehicles inexplicably remained missing, the newspaper said. The Tribune posted one of the new videos online late on Wednesday. PROTECTIVE CUSTODY Van Dyke, 37, is the first Chicago police officer charged with murder over an on-duty exercise of lethal force in decades. If convicted, he could face 20 years to life in prison. He was denied bail at a hearing Tuesday. Van Dyke began his incarceration under protective custody at
a hospital facility segregated from the general population of Cook County Jail, the county sheriff's office said. No information was given about his medical condition. His lawyer, Daniel Herbert, told CNN that the video was not an indicator of his client's guilt. He said Van Dyke arrived on a street on the southwest side of Chicago 18 minutes after a suspect carrying a knife was reported to have threatened businesses and vandalized police cruisers. "Video by its nature is two dimensional. It distorts images," Herbert said. Van Dyke, he said, "truly was in fear for his life as well as the lives of his fellow police officers." Authorities said McDonald was carrying a pocket knife and had the hallucinogenic drug PCP in his system at the time. Footage of the incident contradicts Van Dyke's account that McDonald was moving toward officers when he was shot.
The video shows McDonald jogging away from patrol vehicles pursuing him from behind, then veering off diagonally at a walk as two more officers, one of them Van Dyke, pull up in a squad car ahead of him. The officers are seen emerging from their vehicle and drawing their weapons while advancing toward McDonald, who continues to move away. Within seconds he is shot, spins and crumples to the ground, his body jerking as he is hit by more gunshots. Prosecutors said 16 rounds fired by Van Dyke struck McDonald as the officer unloaded his weapon at the youth. MORE RALLIES PLANNED Authorities in Chicago, a city of 2.7 million people, had girded for the possibility of civil unrest on a scale seen in cities such as Baltimore and Ferguson, Missouri, but the city remained mostly tranquil by Wednesday night. Five people were arrested late on Tuesday in mostly peaceful rallies, and a new round of protests on Wednesday at Chicago's criminal courthouse and City Hall were sparsely attended. Members of the City Council's black caucus again demanded the resignation of Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy. "We want McCarthy gone. We want new leader-
ship," Alderman Roderick Sawyer told a news conference. Critics of the police department and prosecutors have questioned why it took investigators 13 months to bring charges against Van Dyke and to release police video from the case. A group of between 100 and 200 protesters began a march at the start of the evening rush-hour in Chicago's busy downtown area on Wednesday, and were still on the streets more than five hours later despite the onset of rain. Additional rallies were planned for Chicago's annual Thanksgiving Day parade on Thursday and another for Friday. President Barack Obama, who hails from Chicago and began his political career there, said on Facebook he was "deeply disturbed" by the video but "personally grateful to the people of my hometown for keeping protests peaceful."

HEALTH & COMMUNITY NEWS As Holiday Travel Season Begins, L.A. Airport Police Union Says More Public Safety Improvements Needed Over Ritzy Hangout Spot for the Wealthy LOS ANGELES, CA - Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is well on its way to being the busiest airport in the country during the 2015 11-day holiday travel season. After the attacks in Paris, other airports nationwide are focused on enhancing public safety during the holidays. In Los Angeles, Los Angeles World Airport (LAWA) executives are instead announcing the construction of a VIP lounge for the one-percent. Since the official start of the holiday travel period last week, LAX has already had a number of high profile public safety incidents-some of which could have been avoided efforts been made to enhance
public safety. On Thursday, an offduty pilot trying to get on the wrong plane prompted the bomb squad to shut down a portion of the airport. The man dressed in a pilot's uniform was seen trying to enter New York-bound JetBlue Flight 24 through the plane's jetway bridge before the on-duty flight crew had arrived and then disappeared. That same day four juveniles were taken into custody and cited after LAXPD received a report of someone jumping the fence surrounding the LAX Sand Dunes and Blue Butterfly Preserve. A celebrity lounge shouldn't be the priority for LAX. What LAX needs is
Sweet Craving By Dean L. Jones, CPM For some it is a badge of honor for craving and eating loads of sugary-filled items. But at some point there comes a time to ask the question of whether or not that sweet craving has actually shifted from honor to addiction. Sugar fuels every cell in the brain and consequently acknowledges sugar as a reward, which makes wanting more to feel natural. The most general sign that sugar addiction may be in play is when there is no control over intake of sugary items, thereby eating more than expected or planned. The added sugar in candy, pastries, sodas, and all that is categorized as a simple carbohydrate (carbs) that quickly turns into glucose in the bloodstream. Simple carbs are also found in fruits, veggies, and dairy products, except these have fiber and protein that slows digestion, preventing a spike in the blood sugar level. It is the pancreas organ that makes insulin, a hormone needed to move glucose out of the bloodstream and into our body's cells for energy. Therefore, do not become a victim when blood sugar levels drop by grabbing empty calories in processed sugary-filled items just to get a quick pick-me-up, as this reinforces an addictive habit. Complex carbs are bagels, chips, French fries, white breadrice-flour, crackers, pretzels, pasta, etc... that the body breaks down into simple sugars. So, if eaten without better foods, such starches can make blood sugar surge and crash just like simple carbs do. Because high-protein foods digest more slowly, eating protein is an easy way to curb sugar cravings and at the same time keep you feeling full for longer. In addition, fiber rich foods are very filling that fuels energy needs and does not raise your blood sugar. Too many mistakenly turn to artificial sweeteners to deal with their sugar cravings, but essentially all artificial sweeteners are dangerous in a number of ways.
Photo by Gloria Zuurveen
Dean L. Jones Mainly, artificial sweeteners cause the body to want to overeat by increasing sweet cravings to want more sugar, consequently compelling you to gorge. Beware of foodstuff labels that list any simple carb in the first three or four ingredients; such as Agave nectar, brown rice syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, dextrose, evaporated cane juice, glucose, lactose, malt syrup, molasses, sucrose, et cetera. Dreadfully, commonly consumed products that include sugar high on their list of ingredients include ketchup, barbecue sauce, pasta sauce, reduced-fat salad dressings, bread, baked beans, & canned soups. The medical community continues to concur that eating processed sugar does not cause diabetes. Nonetheless, eating too much sugar will increase weight that can lead to type-2 diabetes, because heavier bodies have a harder time using insulin and when the body resists insulin, blood sugar and the risk of contracting the severe illness of diabetes goes up. For this reason, celebrate this holiday season SugarAlert! www.SugarAlert.com Mr. Jones is a marketing strategist with the Southland Partnership Corporation (a public benefit organization), sharing his view on mismanagement practices of packaged foods & beverages.
higher reinforced fencing, double fencing and the latest technology advances for state of the art intrusion along with detection devices to make the more than 8 miles of perimeter fencing at LAX less vulnerable to would-be terrorists, criminals and juvenile fence jumpers. It's been two years since the November 1, 2013 LAX shooting when Paul Ciancia began shooting at TSA officers-killing TSA Officer Gerardo Hernandez, Airport Police still don't have access to airport security cameras or a coordinated airportwide security camera system. The kind of system what would have allowed police to easily locate the man dressed in a pilot's uniform seen trying to board a JetBlue flight. In 2015, despite numerous recommendations following the November 1st shooting, including an 99page LAWA Active Shooter Incident and Resulting Airport Disruption Report--TSA, air-
port management, airlines and vendors own and operate their own security camera systems and there is no requirement that they provide Airport Police with a feed should an incident occur. While Airport Police staffing numbers are lower than they were five years ago, passenger loads have increased by ten million. LAX still needs more specially trained, experienced Airport Police Officers, not just manning the perimeter-but patrolling surrounding areas to thwart potential attacks before they ever reach the perimeter of this huge and vital transportation hub. "We've been watching the billions being spent on mostly cosmetic upgrades at the airport while public safety improvements take a backseat," said LAAPOA President Marshall McClain. "Airport Police Officers are riding around in vehicles that are 7 years old with over 125,000
miles on them. The industry standard is to replace these vehicles within 3 to 5 years or 75,000 to 100,000 miles-whichever comes first. Our fleet is still utilizing vehicles over 10 years old and some of our vehicles have over 250,000 miles on them." The 70 million people who travel annually through LAX, the vast majority of whom will never see the inside of LAX's new VIP lounge would rather have LAWA executives fund much needed public safety measures that benefit everyone rather than cosmetic enhancements that benefit only a few. LAX continues to be considered the highest terrorist target on the West Coast. The policing and security gaps that exist at LAX are clear. Before airport executives spend money to build a VIP lounge to be used by the wealthy, they need to fund the necessary improvements to the overall public safety of the airport.

BUSINESS & COMMUNITY NEWS Why $15 An Hour Minimum Wage Will Destroy Black Entrepreneurship By Professor Devin Robinson Black people have a bad habit of trying to find the most comfortable way to stay at the bottom. We got angry over President Clinton’s reform on TANF. We fight for the expansive rights of conjugal visits. Now, we are in a battle over the minimum wage law. What kills the black community most is that we live in a democracy. What does that mean? It means that, in most cases, majority rules. The unfortunate thing is the majority of blacks are not widely exposed to the art of economics, wealth-building and leveraging. This simply means that oftentimes our concerns will be economically self-centered and short-sighted. It’s not because we are stupid. In fact, that’s far from the truth. But often what we are is underinformed. Let me explain. Employees are part of the machine that brings goods and services to the market. For every good or service that’s produced there is a cost per unit. This cost includes employees. In fact, one of the vulnerabilities that humans have is that we have this thing called “capacity”. We can only do so much in a specified time. Add the emotional aspect of having to inspire or consider the emotions of a worker, and you sometimes have a frustrated employer. The common myth is that every worker does a good job, just like the myth that every homeless person is a victim. There are cases where workers don’t deliver on the performance they promised in interviews, yet the government holds companies feet to the fire to pay a worker once they are on the clock, no matter their performance. This alone has been one of the top reasons a company elects to pursue replacing workers with technology. The bad workers are putting good workers’ jobs at risk every day. Let me break down everything in segments: Small Business Disparity Let’s talk about the segment of business that many unions, workers and government tend to overlook: the small business. I’ve been championing for legislation that allows small (and new) businesses the option to pay lower wages or have corporations’ minimum wage be higher than the minimum wage that small businesses are forced to pay. Why? It’s simple. New and small businesses have at least 24 months before they are stable, have the sales volume and are competitive. Inside those 2 years is crucially vulnerable for a small business. Put a hefty price tag like a $15 per hour minimum wage and less people will get hired, small business owners may find themselves in much greater debt to satisfy payroll and float expenses, and fewer entrepreneurs will be willing to take the risk at business ownership. Put these
Professor Devin Robinson obstacles up against a black entrepreneur and we will soon see black entrepreneurship becoming extinct. The real problem is as we go along our daily lives we tend to view businesses as these wealth machines and the truth is only 3% of all businesses in America generate over $100,000 per year. There are way more businesses struggling and trying to make ends meet that those sitting like fat rats. Black Businesses – When you think about it, most businesses that we are able to start don’t require high skilled labor. We start mom and pop type businesses with small locations, out of our garages or from the trunks of our cars. We are the segment of businesses that are more likely to hire a high school drop-out, convicted felon or recovering drug addict. We are the segment that have less customer traffic and sell less complex items. If we lose that ability to attract workers for less, we lose the chance to build our businesses. Consider this – Salary and hourly employees are guaranteed to go work and go home every day with more money in their pockets than what they left home with. Businesses, on the other hand don’t have that guarantee. Government winning – It’s been our culture to turn to government for rescue, rather than turning to ourselves. The fact is, this rhetoric of higher minimum wage only gets the masses going and causes us to endear the politicians. What we are missing is that the real beneficiary of higher wages is the government. Remember, the government’s tax cut is based on percentage. Government’s design is commissionbased. It doesn’t have to do more to earn more. We are the ones doing more so it can earn more. Basically, the more you make, the more it takes; even if the service it provides remains unchangeable. High prices – In economics, it is understood that the higher your costs, the higher your prices will need to be. A massive increase in minimum wage can create slow job growth, hyperinflation and higher unemployment, more so in black communities Effects - Because we don’t

have a strong lending network, diverse customer base and wide diverse industry types of black owned businesses, other ethnic groups may be able to survive such cost increases. We won’t. It may begin with some initial pay increases but in the long run there will be shrinkage in payrolls. Our Grandparents – Here’s my last point. Remember how entrepreneurial our grandparents were, and somehow that lifestyle didn’t get to our parents? It’s because our grandparents were locked out of the mainstream system that would’ve taught them how to create generational enterprises. So they remained stuck at the “hustler” stage of entrepreneurship, instead of evolving into enterprisers. This made our grandparents look like strugglers and it made true entrepreneurship look unattractive to
them and to our parents. So our parents became discouraged, and when America integrated, it became the opportune time for our parents to pursue college, government or corporate jobs. We lost it along the way and now entrepreneurship has become a “back-up” plan. It has become the “Plan B Morning After pill”. When all else fails. When we get felony convictions. When we retire. It’s only then is entrepreneurship an option. But that’s because of the lack of explanation and our ability to breakdown the complexity of entrepreneurship to our children. We have stuck our heads in the sand. The high school drop outs, convicted felons and low performing people in our communities will go unhired. The current $12 and $13 earners will get hired first, not those currently earning minimum wage. Minimum wage workers’ income is at risk of stopping immediately over the long term until those people retool their skills. What they will be forced to do is return to government for further assistance as a result of their minimum wage protest. Yeah, I get it. There will be people who will say it’s easy for me to say all of this meanwhile what about the people struggling every day to make ends meet. What I explain to those people is, the workforce is an economic cesspool full of decisions and circumstances. It’s full of investments and returns. Employees are investments. Employers want a re-
turn. If a company loses, workers are protected from feeling those losses. Can you truly provide a micro return on a $15 per hour investment? Don’t look at the overall earnings of the company. Look at what you bring to the table. We have to focus on enhancing our collective skills at all costs, rather than forcing benefits to arbitrarily drop down to us. When you are starting a business, it is an uphill battle. Your fixed costs are often higher than that of a corporation or a company with years in business. Add higher employment costs and we’re done. What black people are doing is fighting for personal economics that will destroy our collective economics. The fight has to be to get into the best business schools, start businesses, get equal opportunities for government contracts, and yes, we must hold black business owners’ feet to the fire to hire black workers, treat them well and give them growth opportunities. That’s where our energies are best spent. Everything else looks good on paper but will hurt us in reality.

NATIONAL/STATE & REGIONAL NEWS Chicago Officer Who Shot Laquan McDonald 16 Times Amassed 18 Civilian Complaints By Michael Tarm CHICAGO (AP) — The White Chicago police officer charged with first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of a Black teenager was the subject of 18 civilian complaints over 14 years, including allegations that he used racial epithets and excessive force, police and court records show. Complaints against police are not uncommon. But the number filed against Jason Van Dyke was high, and at least one was linked to a civil trial where jurors awarded damages to someone he arrested. Van Dyke’s lawyer, Daniel Herbert, did not return a message left Wednesday by The Associated Press seeking comment about the complaints.After the complaints were filed, the 37-year-old
Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke (left) was charged with first degree murder in the killing of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald (right). (Photos/Police mugshot and family handout)
Van Dyke, who joined the department in June 2001, denied every allegation. None of the complaints resulted in disciplinary action. A closer look at some of the cases: COMPLAINT: A Black woman accused Van Dyke of
Black Advertising, Media Firms Waiting To Tap Black Voters for Political Campaigns By Ken Smikle For African American advertising, marketing, media and research firms, the 2016 political season officially began last week with the news that Hillary Clinton's campaign had made its first hire. Chicago-based Burrell Communications has been selected to develop the creative for TV, radio, print and digital media targeting African American voters. Also retained by the Clinton campaign is Ron Lester, whose expertise as a pollster for political candidates goes back 15 years when he formed his Washington-based Lester and Associates in 1990. The two recent appointments are the latest recognition within the Clinton organization that black voters will be critical to success both in the primary and general elections. While African Americans voted in greater percentages than any other group in the 2012 national election, there's no certainty that they will vote in record numbers next year when there isn't a black candidate at the top of the ballot. Black marketing and media professionals have their eye on another barometer of how seriously both Democrats and Republicans will be taking the black vote, and that is ad spending. There's no shortage of experience in turning out the black vote among black ad agencies, media buyers and planners, and black media. Firms such as UniWorld, Carol H. Williams, FUSE and GlobalHue have years of experience in developing successful political ads and media strategies for both Democrats and Republicans. But in the Obama era, fewer of the firms have been called upon. The Obama campaign and PACs supporting his candidacy spent an estimated $409 million in all ads in the re-election effort in 2012, while Mitt Romney shelled out $492 million. While there's no industry data
Hillary Clinton available on what portion of those dollars went to African American firms, those that have produced and carried political ads in the past say that they have never received budgets that reflected the importance of black voters to the election process. Following 2012, African American marketing and media owners expressed anger at being excluded from the Obama campaign's largess. Black newspapers in particular were very vocal about not getting what they considered was a fair share of those campaign dollars. Black voters' participation, none the less, helped delivered victory for the President. However, outcomes could differ for Clinton. While this could again prove to be an historic election, black influencers -- which include black media owners -- could temper their enthusiasm if they feel cut out of campaign budgets. And a lack of dollars and enthusiasm could be reflected in not just news content, but in the all-important impressions made through editorials and social media. One black professional offered what he thought was a simple equation for political candidates' success. "We're 14 percent of the population, so spend 14 percent of your ad buys with us. That 14 percent margin assures you victory in November and defeat without it."
repeatedly directing racial epithets at her as police searched an apartment on Dec. 1, 2013, according to the records from the Independent Police Review Board, which investigates complaints against police. She was not the subject of the search. FINDING: The board concluded that the woman herself was “invasive, disruptive and provocative such that her arrest also would have been justified had it occurred.”
It added that “the officers at the scene acted with apparent restraint.” COMPLAINT: A 34-year -old Black man stopped on suspicion of drunken driving on March 19, 2011, accused Van Dyke of choking him when he refused to spit out a cough drop. Later, Van Dyke allegedly bent the man’s arm behind his back when he hesitated about taking a fourth breathalyzer test. FINDING: The board concluded that, “Without any physical or independent information, there is insufficient evidence to prove or disprove the allegations.” COMPLAINT: As police responded to a report of a car accident near a liquor store on April 6, 2008, a 20-year-old Black man alleged that Van Dyke pointed a gun at him and a different officer kicked him in the eye as he lay on the ground. Van Dyke told investigators the man was stopped because he and other bystanders
ran as police arrived. When shown a picture of the man’s injury, the board’s report said, Van Dyke “indicated he did not know how the injury to his left eye was sustained.” FINDING: The report concluded that, “Given the lack of any witnesses, it cannot be determined how (the man) sustained the injury.” COMPLAINT: A 41-year -old Black man claimed Van Dyke and his partner pushed him and verbally abused him during a July 9, 2007, traffic stop. After Van Dyke’s partner slammed the man onto the hood of his car, Van Dyke allegedly shoved the handcuffed man into a police car. The man said he injured both shoulders. FINDING: The review board said there was no evidence backing the allegations. But the man later filed a federal lawsuit and won. In 2009, jurors awarded him $350,000 for his injuries.

ART&ENTERTAINMENT NEWS ‘Motown the Musical’ to Broadway: ‘I’ll Be There’Again
By Mark Kennedy From Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — We’ve heard it through the grapevine — “Motown the Musical” is coming back to Broadway. Motown Records founder Berry Gordy and producer Kevin McCollum said Monday that the musical that tells the story of how the record label rose and fell and then rose again will return to New York starting July 2016 for an 18week stand. McCollum said the show has gotten stronger since opening cold on Broadway two years ago and Gordy has been sharpening the story. “It’s a much crisper and shorter and has a real pop to it,” he said. The show is currently on tour and will play the holidays in Washington, D.C. Early next year, it hits Virginia, Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Tennessee, Ohio and Wisconsin, among other places. It also plays the Shaftesbury Theatre in London’s West End in February. McCollum, whose shows currently include “Something Rotten!” and “Hand to God,” said the “Motown” creators have tinkered with the musical since it left Broadway, something not possible in New York. “Mr. Gordy doesn’t quit and neither do I,” he said. For his part, Gordy said: “We tweaked a lot of stuff and the road show got tighter and tighter. And now it’s coming back to Broadway and we’re very happy about that because that’s where it started. It was raw and they accepted us and loved us, and so we’re so excited to get back to where it started when it was rough.” The show first began performances in March 2013 at the Lunt Fontanne Theatre and closed this January after over

“Call JOE When You’re Ready To Go!” In a Dec. 6, 2014 file photo, Berry Gordy arrives at Selma And The Legends That Paved The Way Gala, in Goleta, Calif. Producer Kevin McCollum said Monday, Nov. 23, 2015, that the musical that tells the story of how Motown Records rose and fell and then rose again will return to New York starting July 2016 for an 18-week stand. McCollum said the show has gotten stronger since opening cold on Broadway two years ago and Motown Records founder and book writer Berry Gordy has sharpened the story. (Photo by Richard Shotwell/Invision/AP, File) 700 performances, routinely breaking $1 million a week at the box office. For this upcoming stint, the show will be at the Nederlander Theatre, a smaller venue but one McCollum thinks is a better fit. The story begins and ends in 1983 — Motown’s 25th anniversary — and travels back in time to show how Gordy helped start the careers of Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye and many more. “Ultimately, ‘Motown’ is the story about the American dream. One man, who against all odds, built a company that changed music as much as Steve Jobs changed music,” McCollum said. The show, directed by Charles Randolph-Wright, has one of the most amazing scores, including “War,” ”Reach Out and Touch,” ”What’s Going On” ”Sign, Sealed, Delivered,” ”My Girl” and “Dancing in the Streets.” The show earned four
Tony Award nominations. “This music connects so many people — white, black, young, old, rich, poor. It’s very universal and that’s why I think coming back is the right thing,” McCollum said. “This is the music that defined our country and art and civil rights. It continues to be resonant in today’s very troubling, tumultuous times.” For Gordy, 85, who is a co-producer of the show with McCollum and Doug Morris, said “Motown the Musical” is no mere musical for him. It’s his life up there, after all. “So many people tell me that they relive so much of their life through the songs and the stories. I usually let them know I’m reliving it all the time and it’s wonderful and beautiful — the good times and the bad times,” he said. “I’m so glad that the love lasted between us all so strongly.” ___
