Do Black Lives Matter To America’s Police? Snipers Kill Five Dallas Police During Protest Over Black Shootings
Voices of the People Speak Out On the Killing of Black Men By Gloria Zuurveen Editor-in-Chief LOS ANGELES—In the 1960s, Fannie Lou Hamer, the late great civil rights activist said it best to describe the continuous abuse of Black folks in the delta of Mississippi and elsewhere in these United States of America. It was on Aug. 22 in 1964 that the poor Mississippi sharecropper sat before the Credentials Committee of the Democratic National Convention in Atlantic City when Hamer described in graphic detail the vicious 1963 beating in a Mississippi jailhouse that left her with severe kidney damage, a blood clot behind one eye and a permanent limp. She revealed the demeaning discrimination that nearly crippled the souls of black folks in Mississippi. It was here

Regina Wilson that Hamer utter the profound words that still resonate to day. She said, “I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.” The way it looks today in America, more than 50 years later it is appalling to have to still hear these words being uttered by Blacks all over America because of the senseless killing of Black men in America for no cause other than being Black. Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and Antwun “Ronnie” Shumpert are young men who were recently gunned down by the very police who are sworn to protect and serve the public. Like Hamer, whose voice was loud and clear in opposition to the demeaning discrimination that Blacks were enduring, so too are the voices of the people loud and clear in opposition to the deadly encounter with law enforcement that Black men are facing day after day in these United States of America and they want something to be done to stop the onslaught. Please see People, page 12
Philando Castile, 32, died Wednesday night after being shot several times by a police officer in a suburb outside St. Paul, Minn., police confirmed. The immediate aftermath of the shooting was streamed live on Facebook by Castile’s girlfriend Lavish Reynolds.

By Lisa Maria Garza REUTERS—Snipers operating from rooftops in Dallas killed five police officers and wounded six more in a coordinated attack during one of several protests across the country against the killing of two black men by police this week. Police described Thursday night's ambush as carefully planned and executed and had taken three people into custody before a fourth died from what Dallas-based media said was a self-inflicted gunshot after a standoff that extended into Friday morning. The fourth suspect had exchanged gunfire with police during the standoff at a downtown garage and warned of placing bombs throughout the city. Police have yet to confirm his death. The attack was one of the worst mass shootings of police in U.S. history. White House officials have spoken with Dallas
Mayor Mike Rawlings about the shooting that turned the downtown of one of the largest U.S. cities into a sprawling crime scene, unfolding along streets that house major corporations, restaurants and government offices. A spokesman said President Barack Obama, visiting Poland, has been briefed about the sniper shootings that took place as a protest in Dallas was winding up under the watch of the police. No specific motive has been given for the shootings at the downtown protest, one of many held in major cities across the United States on Thursday. New York police made more than a dozen arrests on Thursday night, while protesters briefly shut down one of Chicago's main arteries. Dallas Police Chief David Brown said the shooters, some in elevated positions, used sniper rifles to fire at the officers in what appeared to be a coordinated attack." (They were) working together with rifles, triangulating at elevated positions in different points in the downtown area where the march ended up going," Brown told a news Please see Police, page 6

EDITORIAL/OPINION Publisher’s Column
Dr. Gloria Zuurveen Founder /Owner/ Publisher/Photographer
I am sick and tired of being sick and tired like the late Fannie Lou Hamer said about the racism and discrimination she faced as a strong black woman in Mississippi in the 1960s. She was not afraid to stand up to the bullies who wore white robes and hoods to scare many away from the polling places and other equal opportunities all because they were Black. Today they do not overtly wear the band of honor, their Ku Klux Klan outfit all dressed in white but now they wear the blue uniform with a gun and instead of burning crosses they burned the brain, the hearts, and the entire body with multiple bullets and use for an excuse they were fearing for their life. This is against the rule and law of God and of man. God ordain law for many to be controlled and the police is to demonstrate control as officers of the law. What we’ve witnessed in the last couple of days are policemen who are out of control and do not obey the very law they are suppose to uphold themselves. The way they have been killing innocent people can not go on. Violence begets violence. This country was built on violence and the very people who try to tell others they should show some control and not do violence are the very one who are doing the violence. No one is going to sit around or stand around and be whiped out like the Indians were and driven to reservations. We do even see Indians walking around on their own land because of the violence which was meted out on them a long, long time ago. The white man committed such violent acts on Indians and they also committed heinous acts against our forefathers and now they are trying that same thing on us. But they better ask somebody cause things ain’t like it use to be. God has given us the victory and we are not cowards. We are a blessed people but we are not an ignorant people. Stop now from these acts of violence on Black people.

One Shining Moment By James Clingman More than a couple of million folks have responded to the words spoken by Jesse Williams, which points out the fact that many Black people are mesmerized by words that excite us and stimulate our emotions. Rather than initiating practical and appropriate actions as a result of words that make us feel good, we usually end up celebrating, espousing, regurgitating, and discussing, ad nauseam, those words instead of implementing strategies that make us “do good.” The speech by Williams was important and relevant, especially to Black people. I appreciate his words and his willingness to make his statements on such a widely viewed stage. He used his fame and the very popular BET Awards Show to put forth a message that has been spoken and written by others before him, but also one that we need to hear over and over. Seems to me that when someone famous says the same things other non-famous folks have said, it takes hold quicker and our light bulbs come on faster. Questions: “How long will the message last, and will we act upon it? Jesse Williams’ background, political affiliations and motivations notwithstanding, his message was more important than the messenger. But since we are so attuned with what our celebrities say, he had instant credibility with many young and older folks alike. This is not to suggest that we discriminate against a message because of its messenger. A moron can bring a valid message. Suppose Clarence Thomas had said the same thing Williams said. Would we reject that message? My point is that Black folks should be able to discern a positive message that comes from any messenger, so that we can know “why” the message is being promulgated and be able to respond appropriately to that message. Emotional catch-words and phrases are fleeting and seldom cause any improvement in our wellbeing. Remember: “I have a dream!” “Down with dope – Up with hope!” “No justice, no peace!” “Yes we can!” and all the other words we have heard and chanted millions of times? I’d rather we follow words from Richard Allen, “To Seek for Ourselves,” Marcus Garvey, “One God, One Aim, One Destiny!” and Elijah Muhammad, “Do for Self.” I chose to hear some of those words in Williams’ speech, and I give him credit for speaking on the subject. It’s on Mr.
Williams now to show us what he meant by putting his words into action; and it’s up to the rest of us to develop strategies and initiatives that will move our people forward. Jesse Williams spoke on issues that I have written articles on as far back as 1994, more specifically, one titled, “The Young and the Relentless,” in which I described how many young Blacks were becoming entrepreneurs. Rather than falling for the okey-doke of buying and wearing someone else’s brand, they were developing, marketing, and selling their own brands. Unfortunately, as the article also cited, many of our young entertainers had succumbed to the lure of “OPS” (Other People’s Stuff) e.g. Adidas, Nike, Hilfiger, etc. rather than “OPM” (Other People’s Money). It is ironic that in April 1997 Forbes Magazine featured a front page article titled, “Badass Sells,” by Joshua Levine, which aptly illustrated much of the tremendous economic potential within the younger segment of Black America. It also described how the hip-hop culture had been coopted by designers such as Hilfiger and manufacturing giants like Nike. Now in 2016, Alicia Keys is featured in a commercial for Levis jeans, in which she says, all women are “Badass,” so I guess it still sells. But I digress. Will Jesse Williams’ comments simply become last month’s shining moment for Black folks, or will his message finally be transformed into real economic progress for our people? Will his two minutes of enlightenment and in-your-face rejoinder to our plight make their way into the pantheon of speeches by our learned elders, or will they drift off into oblivion never having gained traction or made a significant difference in our lives? Will Jesse Williams’ one shining moment become activated within us to the degree that we begin to coalesce and collaborate to build an economic foundation from which we can truly have an impact on public policy? Fiery rhetoric, overwhelming applause, and two million “hits” and “tweets” are not enough to get the job done. We must have action; we must have a critical mass of Black people who are willing and able to work to make our economic and political empowerment a reality. (See: www.iamoneofthemillion.com) Yes, we had yet another shining moment when Williams took the stage to accept his award. Will its sheen fade to Black, or will that moment turn into momentum for Black progress? Remember: A moment is not a movement, but a moment can start a movement.
Saving Community Newspapers in the Age of Facebook By Denise Rolark-Barnes (Chairperson of the NNPA) and Benjamin F. Chavis (President and CEO of the NNPA)
Hundreds of newspapers have disappeared in the last 15 years and readership is on the decline. No newspaper is immune from the migration of readership to online platforms, dwindling ad revenues, fragmented audiences and even reduced attention spans. Even national-recognized newspapers with celebrated histories like “The New York Times” and “The Washington Post” have retrenched in the face of these mounting economic pressures. Many regional and community newspapers – including some members of the historic Black Press – are barely hanging on. The ramifications of this can be profound. Local publications have long served as the glue that binds communities together. They have served as the microphone for voices that would otherwise be marginalized and the spotlight on the stories that seldom make it onto the front pages of major newspapers and magazines. For African-American communities, the publications that make up the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) have served as that voice across the nation. Yet, we are being told that the silver lining is that journalism isn’t disappearing – and won’t be any time soon. Rather, it has just moved to an electronic form. Not only that, there are also more opportunities to tell more stories and express more opinions than ever before. Some have said that we should not mourn the loss of the local newspaper and that we should instead explore the myriad possibilities offered by the new media. Or so goes the mantra. In reality, this upbeat vision obscures the threat that new media poses to community journalism. And that threat is coming from a most unlikely place – the popular social media platforms that so many of us love. Chief among them is Facebook. Like many other publishers who have recently written on Facebook’s growing power over the media and what Americans read, we too are alarmed with one company having such dominance in news aggregation. Online hubs like Facebook are able to engineer which stories catch on. And they’re able to decide by algorithmic fiat, which bylines, viewpoints and subject matter is promoted to the masses. This is a new kind of power. It is unlike any power a media company has ever had before. A study last year reported that Facebook drove 43 percent of all the traffic to the top 400 news sites. That’s almost half coming from one powerful source!
What’s more, we don’t know how Facebook’s operations work. The tech company isn’t transparent in its methods. So we don’t know whether the viewpoints of Black publishers are heard or if there is a bias against our views. Without knowing how Facebook’s “Trending Topics” or other algorithms are used in promoting stories, the owners of Black-owned newspapers, magazines and other media are left only to wonder why the stories our outlets produce are relegated to the margins – if they are acknowledged at all. Our readers are at the mercy of powers unheard and unseen as never before. With 63 percent of Americans and 74 percent of millennials going to Facebook as their source of news, Facebook’s power is only likely to grow in the coming years. And there is something ironic about that. The mainstream media was once derided as unimaginative and monolithic, largely because it had long been dominated by three TV networks and a handful of newspapers in large cities. The Internet was supposed to change all that by bringing a diversity of viewpoints to the table. While this has indeed happened, the emergence of one or even a handful of powerful gatekeepers like Facebook raises profound questions about the nature of news in this country in the years to come. With so much power in the hands of one company, we risk surrendering our own decisions about what is or isn’t newsworthy to a gatekeeper who may someday push only stories it deems worthy. And that’s a troubling possibility that should worry us all. It is time regulators took a hard look at Facebook and its news aggregation and promotion practices in an effort to bring some much needed transparency to the new media king. The democratization of the media could be on a collision course with decidedly anti-democratic and arbitrary forces. Think of the proverbial tree that falls silently in the forest because no one is there to hear it. Will Facebook have the power to allow entire forests to fall without much notice? The National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) is a trade group that represents more than 200 Black-owned media companies in the United States. As the largest and most influential Black-owned media resource in America, the NNPA delivers news, information, and commentary to over 20 million people each week.

EDUCATION & COMMUNITY NEWS Grace Hopper STEM Academy (GHSA) Holds Training with Jayaram Menon, Chairman of Mensa High IQ Society By Pam Taylor Education Writer INGLEWOOD—Last week, Grace Hopper STEM Academy took another major innovative step to improve its academic offerings to students at their schools. The Board of Directors, under the recommendation and leadership of one of their own, Paul Radke, who is a member of Mensa, invited Mr. Jayaram Menon, who is also a member of Mensa, the Chairman of Mensa of Malaysia, and the brain behind the Penang Puzzles, to visit GHSA’s campus. Mr. Menon will be working with GHSA to implement new and exciting techniques for learning and retaining information (especially in the fields of math and science).

As you are probably aware, Mensa is the largest and oldest high IQ society in the world. Jay has taken his knowledge and skills and has developed simple strategies that require students to use logical reasoning to solve problems. Jay conducted a one day orientation followed by four days of workshops to GHSA’s administrators, faculty, and special guests (who are recognized as experts in the field of education). The presentation and workshops were fun filled, exciting and engaging—a number of techniques needed to achieve student buy in. GHSA already uses the Project Lead The Way Gateway curriculum which is arguably the most advanced being used by middle schools. Their extended school hours, small class sizes, use of Project/ Problem Based Learning, as well as a dedicated and gifted faculty are able to maintain student participation and interest. Anyone who visits GHSA tends to be impressed with the fact that their students really enjoy coming to school and the student body is a very productive entity. Although the school is already engaging in leading edge academic practices, they are always seeking methods to improve. Accordingly, Paul Radke, came upon an article, in his Mensa journal, explaining a program which has been started in Malaysia. Paul brought the program to the attention of the Executive Director and the Board of Directors. They all welcomed the concept and authorized Paul to contact Mr. Menon and take action to bring the program to GHSA. It is abundantly clear, after Jay’s
visit, that GHSA’s initial belief that the program might be of some use in improving the curriculum was a major underestimation of the program’s value and the profound effect we now anticipate it will have on our Academic programs. Jay is a brilliant man, who is a gifted teacher. He is an engineer by profession, and his teaching gift was demonstrated when he was able to communicate individually with each participant. His audience was composed of high powered, long term educators as well as new teachers just finishing their first year in the profession. Jay maintained their rapt attention. He was able to explain how the challenges worked, and even though some of the concepts were quite complex, he left no one behind. About eight years ago Jay started an event in Malaysia called Puzzler’s Challenge, in which teams of children competed—first state wide, but eventually in a national event. The puzzles consist of things that the children learn in school (in math and science). The puzzles are not straightforward. While they are all doable they don’t consist of regurgitating facts, but focus on the logical, and innovative use of the facts the students have learned—and does so in a way that maintains their interest and pleasure. This concept was embraced by the people of Malaysia, and is the basis of a new TV program “Clever Girl,” in which young ladies compete nationwide to become the Clever Girl. Mr. Menon provides the challenges
content, which is already high, will further increase. The program is designed to teach participants how to think logically so that they can fully use the factual data they learn in their classes. It develops facets of their personality and character that are not being addressed in the standardized curricula. We hope that by imbuing our students to use a logical process of thought on a daily basis they will tend to make the more intelligent choices which will benefit the rest of their lives. The guests who participated in Jay’s workshops told us that they believe that GHSA although will be the first school in the United States to implement this program, they expect other charters and school districts to follow suit in upcoming years.
for this program. They are modifications of the challenges GHSA will be using in that Clever Girl participants must solve their challenges in just a few minutes and the school’s problems are may take an hour or more to solve. Clever Girl just completed its first season and has been picked up for another year. Although it can be seen on Utube, it may not hold your interest unless you speak and understand the Malaysian language. Jay shared with us that “the purpose of the Malaysian challenge is to show children that all the things they are learning in school can be applied to understanding the world about them.” Educators have been aware for Jay Menon and Paul Radke at a training session at Grace Hopper STEM some time that one of the prob- Academy in Inglewood recently.

For Alzheimer's Caregivers, Knowledge is Power (BPT) - Michael Snowden was just 12 and his sister 16 when their mother began to exhibit symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. Although they didn't receive a definitive diagnosis until seven years later, the need to assume caregiving roles while still in their teens profoundly affected their lives. "Not many people understood the disease or how to take care of her," Michael says. "We did not really understand the disease ourselves after the diagnosis. Eventually, my sister and I had to take over the caregiving responsibilities. Our lives quickly changed." The number of Americans with Alzheimer's is set to triple over the next 35 years. "Unless something is done to change its course, the Alzheimer's crisis will continue impacting not only the millions
of Americans currently living with the disease, but their caregivers, friends and family," says Ruth Drew, director of family and information services for the Alzheimer's Association. "Caregiving can become anyone's reality. As the prevalence of the disease increases, more people from all walks of life, economic strata and ages will find themselves helping to support someone with Alzheimer's in the coming years." Approximately twothirds of caregivers are adult women - typically wives or daughters of people with Alzheimer's. A growing number of teenagers and men, however, are finding themselves in a full-time caregiving role. "Facing earlyonset Alzheimer's when my wife, Chris, was in her mid-40s was devastating," recalls Mark Donham, whose wife passed

away from Alzheimer's in 2011 at the age of 54. "Since we did not have extended family nearby, I decided that I would quit my job and care for Chris full time. We had to live on savings, knowing our financial future would be difficult." In addition to financial burdens, Alzheimer's caregivers can become so focused on their role that they neglect their own physical, mental, financial and emotional wellbeing. In fact, according to the Alzheimer's Association 2016 Alzheimer's Disease Facts and Figures report, 20 percent of care contributors sacrificed their own medical care by cutting back on doctor visits. "My biggest challenge was trying to figure out 'how to take care of yourself' as your loved one declines," Donham says. For caregivers, he advises, "Be sure to take active steps to take care of yourself so that you can be the best possible caregiver for your loved one." With more people becoming primary caregivers, the resources provided by the Alzheimer's Association are more critical than ever. Across the country, Alzheimer's Association chapters provide face-to-face services such as support groups and educational sessions within communities. A professionally staffed 24/7 Helpline (800-272-3900) provides information and advice to more than 300,000 callers
each year. Recognizing the growing diversity of Alzheimer's caregivers, the Helpline also provides translation services in more than 200 languages. The Alzheimer's and Dementia Caregiver Center, part of alz.org, offers a wealth of caregiving tips and resources at every stage of the disease. Online message boards and forums allow caregivers to connect with others facing similar challenges to share information, resources and find support at any time of day or night. Support and information can be empowering, the Snowdens and Donham say. "Understand the disease," Shanelle Snowden says. "Once you are able to educate yourself on the disease, you will be able to cope better and you will be able to take care of your loved one better." Donham learned from others in the same situation. "Early on in Chris' disease, I developed coping strategies," Donham says. "I came to accept the disease, got connected to a support group, and educated myself as to the course of the disease and what help I would need to make sure Chris had the best care possible." For people facing the task of becoming an Alzheimer's caregiver, Donham and Snowden offer some advice: Act early, before symptoms become severe. "Face the diagnosis, and
use the earliest times to get legal and financial matters in order," Donham says. "Connect with a support group so that you are not alone on the journey." The Alzheimer's Navigator helps those facing the disease to determine their needs and develop an action plan. In addition to planning for the future, knowing the diagnosis early also enables the person with Alzheimer's to get the maximum benefit from available treatments and participate in clinical studies that help advance research. Alzheimer's Association TrialMatch connects individuals with Alzheimer's, caregivers, healthy volunteers and physicians with current studies. "Cherish each and every moment with your loved one," Michael Snowden says. "Create moments of joy by doing the small things like sitting and watching TV together, listening to their favorite song or even just dancing. It will be something you'll always remember about that person, and not the negative things that come with the disease. Other people out there are going through the same thing. Remember, this was not a curse put upon you or your loved one; it is something that is making you a stronger person."

Snipers Kill Five Dallas Police During Protest Over Black Shootings

(Continued from page 1) conference, adding a civilian was also wounded. "It has been a devastating night. We are sad to report a fifth officer has died," Dallas police said on Twitter. "WORST NIGHTMARE" Mayor Rawlings advised people to stay away on Friday morning as police combed the area where large areas have been cordoned off and transport halted. Federal authorities also halted commercial air traffic for the area as police helicopters hovered over the scene. "Our worst nightmare has happened," the mayor said. "It is a heartbreaking moment for the city of Dallas." The Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area is one of the nation's most populous and is home to more than 7 million people. The use of force by police against African-Americans in cities from Ferguson, Missouri, to Baltimore and New York has sparked periodic and sometimes violent protests in the past two years and has spawned the Black Lives Matter movement. Anger has intensified when the officers involved in such incidents have been acquitted in trials or not charged at all. The shooting happened as otherwise largely peaceful protests unfolded around the United States after the shooting of Philando Castile, 32, by po-
lice near St. Paul, Minnesota, late on Wednesday. His girlfriend posted live video on the internet of the bloody scene minutes afterward, which was widely viewed. The suspect in the Texas standoff had told police "the end is coming" and that more police were going to be hurt and killed. Brown said the suspect also told police "there are bombs all over the place in this garage and downtown". Police said they were questioning two occupants of a Mercedes they had pulled over after the vehicle sped off on a downtown street with a man who threw a camouflaged bag inside the back of the car. A woman was also taken into custody near the garage where the standoff was taking place. "We are leaving every motive on the table on why this happened and how this happened," Brown said. Rawlings visited the wounded at Parkland hospital, the same hospital where President John F. Kennedy was taken after he was shot in Dallas in November 1963. Outside, officers stood in formation and saluted as bodies of the officers were about to be transported. One of the officers killed has been identified. He is Brent Thompson, 43, and an officer with Dallas Area Rapid Transit. (Reporting by Brendan O'Brien in Milwaukee, Eric M.

NATIONAL/STATE & REGIONAL NEWS A Modern Day Lynching:’ Mississippi Man Allegedly Shot by Officer, Maimed by Police Dog By Shaundra Selvaggi The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is probing the disturbing circumstances surrounding a police shooting that left an unarmed Black man dead and disfigured by a K-9 dog. Antwun “Ronnie” Shumpert, 37, was pulled over by an officer for a routine traffic stop around 9:38 p.m. on June 18 when he suddenly exited his vehicle and ran, according to the Tupelo Police Department. The officer and his canine unit companion pursued Shumpert on foot and discovered him under a house in the Lee Acres neighborhood. Shumpert then emerged from hiding to attack the officer and was shot during the struggle, the City of Tupelo said in a press release. The father of five died of injuries hours later at the North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo. Members of the local NAACP joined municipal leaders for a media conference two days after
the shooting, the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports. During which, Tupelo officials provided preliminary details — including Shumpert’s outstanding felony arrest warrant. However, Mayor Jason Shelton did not tell reporters whether the suspect was armed or how many times he was shot, citing “ongoing investigations.” Tupelo-Lee County NAACP president Rev. Chris Traylor urged residents to withhold judgements and comments until investigations have completed. An attorney representing Shumpert’s family held a press conference Monday to offer “new information” on the incident. Grenada lawyer Carlos Moore said eyewitness accounts obtained as part of his own investigations were inconsistent with officials’ claims that Shumpert instigated a tussle with the officer. Onlookers said the man was attempting to surrender to police voluntarily when the dog viciously attacked him in the groin. As he was trying to defend
Antwun “Ronnie” Shumpert CREDIT: Ryan Julison himself, spectators heard four shots, WTVA reports. Moore said the officer shot Shumpert three times in the chest and once in the abdomen.
During the conference, Moore displayed enlarged photos of Shumpert’s injuries. The graphic images showed a gaping wound on the victim’s testicles and deep lacerations across his body. Moore also questioned the original motive for the traffic stop, as according to the attorney, Shumpert fled from the vehicle before the officer approached. Moore said the officer did not ask for identification and could not have known who he was chasing. Moore condemned the department for failing to release the name of the officer involved, who has been placed on administrative leave while the MBI reviews the case. “If the chief of police doesn’t have the intestinal fortitude to fire the officer, then he should resign,” Moore said, per the Daily Journal. “We are giving the city 72 hours to respond.” Moore said if the department refused, the team would call for the mayor’s resignation and file a federal civil rights lawsuit.
“We believe the officer just went berserk,” Moore said in an interview with ThinkProgress. “It was a modern day lynching.” Moore told the publication he was not aware of the officer’s reasons for releasing the K-9, noting that officers are permitted to use the dogs in searches for suspected felons. “What we do know is that at the time that Mr. Shumpert was being chased, he was not a suspected felon,” Moore said. “They didn’t even know his name. It was a simple traffic stop.” In addition, Moore said, he did not understand why the officer decided to shoot Shumpert after the animal had already apprehended the suspect and essentially rendered him defenseless. “It whipped and mutilated and annihilated this man. He tore his body to shreds, basically,” Moore said. “It’s just horrible the way it was done.” “Why are you then going to turn around and execute him in cold blood?” he added. “He could not have been a threat to anyone.”
Voices of the People Speak Out On the Killing of Black Men (Continued from page 1) Regina Wilson, Executive Director, California Black Media said, “It’s obviously very troubling to see such a tragic loss of life and my heart goes out to the families and communities that have been affected. These fatal shootings show just how much our criminal justice system is in need of reform. “At this time, I urge the Black community to stand together and protest peacefully. We should allow a reasonable amount time for the Department of Justice to investigate these heartbreaking incidents. “However, regardless of the outcome of these investigations, it’s time for our elected leaders and public safety officials to acknowledge the clear disparities that appear across our justice system. Remaining silent will only further contribute to the mistrust that exists between law enforcement and the communities they are supposed to protect.” Don Williams of Los Angeles expressed his righteous indignation with these words, “They are out here executing us, standard operating procedure is to look up the criminal records of whom they just murdered. This information is out within an hour. The problem in Minnesota, Philando Castile has no criminal record at all. Forty years ago we always use to say nobody ever lost their job for mistreating black people. This is still true today. Black men all over this country are in real tears this week because we know we could very easily be next. So I’m more afraid of the police than gang bangers!! Seeing that man die as his fiancè filmed it with her four year old child in the back seat was more than I could handle. Who didn't have a tear when you hear her little daughter saying to her mother "It's Ok mommy, I'm right here with you". Me too. OK, so let’s look at the numbers in 1892 , 161 African Americans were lynched or went through capital punishment. Of the unarmed men shot and killed by police last year, 40 percent were black even though black men only make up 6% of the population. We are on track this year to have 509 shooting deaths by the police. So they are killing us every single day , on a good day they get 2. We are 9 times more likely than other Americans to be killed by police officers. So don’t be mad and sad for today, you should be sad and mad every day. We do a good job killing each other (not what I’m talking about right now) we don’t need our police pitching in. Thank God for smart phones we can now document THEM in live time! Now do you believe us? R.I.P. Philando and
Obama On Police Killing Philando Castile And Alton Sterling Alton.” Errol Brown said, “Until offices are prosecuted this will continue.” “We must be resilient to the cowardice of oppression. "Fight fire with Fire." Hold our elected officials accountable. God will not farsake us…,” said Tamara G. Lewis, Founder/President and CEO of We Are Our Brother’s Keeper in Los Angeles. Mira Martin, a resident of Windsor Hills, said, “Here's my thoughts on the killings of black men: "It's really sad that BLACK MEN are being killed by the very people that took an oath to PROTECT & SERVE them in the respective communities. As the list keeps growing and growing with no convictions of the people responsible for the deaths it really puts a lot of doubt in the heads of BLACK people on who the police are really protecting and serving in the communities. You would think that the very law makers that we vote into office would do more to make sure that the police are held responsible for their actions. I don't believe that people in the community should resort to violence when they are protesting about the issue, but that seems like the only scene that makes people with authority take US (BLACK people) serious. My heart goes out to all the families affected by these senseless killings. There needs to be more done in regards to showing the BLACK community that the police are not here to hurt us, but to actually PROTECT & SERVE in our communities." “Racism is the fuel that has been thrown onto the fire that is toxic hypermasculinity. Policemen
have been transformed from those who protect and serve through action into those who hurt and kill through reaction. The murdering of black bodies in this country is an epidemic. And enough is enough,” said Micharri of Inglewood, Ca. At press time, eleven officers have been shot and five are dead in a Dallas 'sniper' attack in retaliation for the killing of Black men. The New York Times reported that President Obama, reacting with the same horror as many Americans to a grisly video of a bloody, dying man in Minnesota who was shot by the police, begged the nation to confront the racial disparities in law enforcement while acknowledging the dangers that officers face. “When incidents like this occur, there’s a big chunk of our citizenry that feels as if, because of the color of their skin, they are not being treated the same, and that hurts, and that should trouble all of us,” Mr. Obama said in a statement on Thursday after arriving in Warsaw for a NATO summit. “This is not just a black issue, not just a Hispanic issue. This is an American issue that we all should care about.” Like Hamer who cared enough to speak up at the DNC in 1965, so too, must the people speak up during the upcoming presidential election at both, the Democratic and the Republican Conventions, and asked the question, “Do Black Lives Matter to America’s Police? Marie Douglas, a Los Angeles resident, lifted her voice to say, “Justice + Just Us = 21st Century Lynching of the Black Man. It is time for us to indite licensed
murderers, we call them Police Officers. It is time to provide psychological examination to reveal those who fear us simply because of the color off our skin, we call them Police Officers. The Black Man and Black Woman are frustrated, stressed, depressed, angry because we are losing our husbands, sons, brothers, fathers, boyfriends, cousins; generations of Black genius and talent to those who took an oath to Serve and Protect All Equally. We call them Police Officers. Enough discussion already. Time for positive change. Time for positive action. Time to stop killing our Black Men. (And it is time to stop the killing, Brotha.) Troy Durden, an Insurance Professional didn’t feel like Black lives mattered to the police when he was faced with being arrested for a crime he did not commit so he performed in a way that he felt would keep him alive and it did. He said, “As you know as a black male in America a few years back I was faced with being arrested for being accused of robbing a bank. During the arrest I had a choice to be very compliant or demand my rights which would have pissed the detectives off and they would have harmed me. Because I lived through Rodney King I hold myself accordingly around the police. Yes, I have rights but we're not playing on a level field, but I am alive because of how I choose to comply and appear to be docile to the police. Is it fair? No. Am I alive? YES. Am I here to tell my other black brother on how to survive YES!” Pastor William D. Smart, President and CEO, Southern Christian Leadership Conference of Southern California chimed in by saying, “ There is value in life and each time an African American is senselessly killed at the hands of law enforcement, it becomes the destruction of potentiality in our community. “We are a nation of multiple ethnicities. We can ill-afford policies that suggest desperate treatment between these same ethnicities. If a man is instructed to produce his ID, he must be allowed to reach for it. Police stopping procedures must be reexamined in light of the irrational fear that seems to justify a "shoot first" mentality,” said, Rev Everett Bell Director of Impact Southern Calif CDC ““Amazing as a black 6'8" male, I don't even think I'll die from old age, cancer and/or diabetic conditions. My fear is dying from an unsuccessful incident, altercation or everyday travel gone wrong with me doing nothing wrong. You would be surprise of all the things I have to do to stay
alive daily. You would not believe the stares and looks I get even as an educated black 6'8" male. I always have to be the one to do extra for others in fear of me to not fear me just so I can go home alive and not have the police called on me or project fear in youngsters eyes to leave that one alone. I live my life still to the fullest but with so much to consider as I go out daily. Let me fast walk by someone without shaking my keys or something. Just thinking out loud today. And My son....... Question of the day..... Can you "go live" or turn on and start recording on your cell phone in less than 5 seconds. 10 seconds 15 seconds etc..? If the answer is no, start practicing on how to work it and get it working under pressure in record time. Your word already means nothing when explaining what just happened. At some point in someone's lifetime, what is recorded as it happens will have to mean something so just make sure you are prepared to record craziness,” said Alexander O. Williams of Washington, D.C. Cheryl Branch said, “Until other officers speak out, nothing in police departments will change. Blacks in law enforcement must stand up, speak out. If you know something, say something. “No man is an island .. karma has everybody's address,” Candyce Lewis-Jackson said and Akeem Bellows added, "America. Land of the free. Well...kinda. It's complicated. " Rev. Jewett Walker, President of the Los Angeles Chapter of the 100 Black Men said, “The justice system has completely collapsed. Police departments across America have determined that Black men are to be mistreated, brutalized and exterminated. There is virtually no accountability in the court system and we must stand together now to repudiate the notion that "The Negro has no rights that the white man is bound to respect." The voices of the people must not be silenced in times like these. The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said it plainly when he said, “The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.” It tis time for the people to wake up and stop sleeping while others are alive and causing “Black Genocide.” Rainey Collins said, The genocide of the Black man is orchestrated from the government evil in high powerful places. The ones we elect to protect us as citizens of these United States of America turn a blind eye while bad things happen good people do nothing to stop it.

Iconic and Legendary Celebrity Low-Budget Moving Photographer Bill Jones Dies At Age 84 Hauling & Delivery Service Los Angeles, CA.— Bill Jones, the highly distinguish and published African American photographer has passed away at 84. According to Jones’ granddaughter, Latoya “Toy” Jones, he died on Saturday, June 25, 2016 at 12 Noon, while holding her hand after suffering from dementia since 2014. Photojournalist Malcom Ali, was with the family during his passing. Ali, who mentored under Jones told Lee Bailey’s Electronic Urban Report/ EUR, “He was a pioneer. Before cell phones, before digital, there was Bill with his camera. There will never be another one like him.” Jones career expanded for more than 50 years. His countless images provided the public with a rare look into the lives of the country’s most notable and influential people that include, high profile entrepreneurs, entertainers, athletes, political figures and social activist such as Halle Berry, Denzel Washington, Eddie Murphy, Debbie Allen, Quincy Jones, Berry Gordy, Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Prince, Mu-
hammad Ali, April Sutton, Queen Latifa, Raven Simon, Magic Johnson, President Barak Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Maya Angelou and Rosa Parks, just to name a few. Award-winning actress Halle Berry once said, “The best pictures of the most important moments in my professional life came from Bill Jones.” Through his work, Jones became something of a celebrity himself. His work has been prominently featured in Getty Images, Wire Images and publications such as, Jet, Ebony, Essence, as well as national newspapers and network television shows such as VH1, MTV, BET and many others. Jones is a solid part of African American history who
has paved the way for other African American photographers to be invited to events/venues generally closed to them. His body of work and legacy became eternally embedded in American society when the board of the new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture overwhelmingly voted to include 79 of Jones’ historical images as part of their collection when it opens in late 2016. Jones’ work is also archived to serve as an educational and resource reference at the United States Library of Congress as part of their Prints and Photographs Division. Currently, the nature of Jones estate is very complex. In lieu of flowers, the family is in need of financial assistance to help with funeral expenses. Any donation would be greatly appreciated. Please send donations to c/o Latoya Jones, 20435 Califa Street, Woodland Hills, CA. 91367. Funeral services are pending and will be announced at a later date.
