"Racism is as American as baseball" Banner hung by white "anti-racist protestors" during Red Sox game in Boston

From [HERE] A banner reading “Racism is as American as baseball” was hung over the Green Monster at Fenway Park during a game between the Red Sox and Athletics on Wednesday night. It reportedly remained in place for a few minutes before being removed by stadium security, and the fans who hung the sign were ejected.

The fans hung it to denounce racism. “We are a group of white anti-racist protestors,” the fans said in a statement to The Post. “We want to remind everyone that just as baseball is fundamental to American culture and history, so too is racism. White people need to wake up to this reality before white supremacy can truly be dismantled. We urge anyone who is interested in learning more or taking action to contact their local racial justice organization.” [MORE]

Dr. Frances Cress Welsing stated,

"People who classify themselves as White, who wish to be taken seriously, and who are righteous and responsible, will only talk about ending White Supremacy (Racism) and replacing it with Justice. [MORE] 

As explained Dr. Blynd, Ph.F.

Racism White Supremacy - psychopathic degeneracy. 2) "The local and global power system and dynamic, structured and maintained by persons who classify themselves as white, whether consciously or subconsciously determined, which consists of patterns of perception, logic, symbol formation, thought, speech, action and emotional response, as conducted simultaneously in all areas of people activity (economics, education, entertainment, labour, law, politics, religion, sex and war); for the ultimate purpose of white genetic survival and to prevent white genetic annihilation on planet earth—a planet upon which the vast majority of people are classified as non-white (Black, Brown, Red and Yellow) by white skinned people, and all of the nonwhite people are genetically dominant (in terms of skin coloration) compared to the genetic recessive white skin people." -Dr. Francis Cress Welsing, MD. Hate and oppression can never reign. Only love is supreme.

Racism -  White Degeneracy wrongly cast as Supremacy. Racism—a psycho-socio-economic reality based on a pseudo-scientific biological myth—is a power group dynamic, i.e., a defined group cooperatively via legacy institutions exerting structured and enforced institutionalized and systemic injustice, oppression and power over another group. Racism is not individualistic, but institutional, cultural, economic, political, linguistic, self-perpetuating and systematic. Racism is economic discrimination by one group over and against another for the purposes of subjugation and/or maintaining the imbalance of power through cooperative control, misinformation, indoctrination, genocide and oppression. Racism is the socioeconomic and cultural bequest of colonialism, neo-colonialism and the vestiges of the transatlantic trafficking of enslaved Afrikans and their descendants. Racism has its bio-physiological origins in the immune response of primitive life-forms to foreign matter and has its geo-psychological roots in the response of primitive humans encountering more intelligent ones based on the meme of scarcity and the fear of genetic annihilation through genetic assimilation. "Racism destroys men—and women—as much by what it denies them as by what it metes out to them." -Isaiah Thomas. "It is pathological for Blacks to keep attempting moral suasion on a people who have no ethics or morality where race is a variable." -Bobby Wright.

"If you can't keep something but you can't give it up, you have to render it unrecognizable; racism has been defined out of existence and repackaged so that whites could retain its perks, especially the psychological ones. It has undergone existential plastic surgery. To keep it buried alive in its unholy grave, a host of Strangelovean anti-intellectualisms have been developed and honed." -Debra J. Dickerson. Racism White Supremacy is a virus in the mind, a malignant meme that has both the host of the virus and the whole society sick. White Supremacy (Degeneracy) is socially engineering Black Consciousness and/or also responsible for the falsification of Black consciousness. "If you don't understand racism white supremacy, everything else you think you know will only confuse you." -Neelly Fuller, Jr. (See: White Supremacy, Yurugu, Park Day, Declaration of Endependece, Ma'afa & Caucasion).

White Media Coverage of New Census Figures Hide the Fact that Black & Latino Families Earn Much Less than Whites

From [HERE] New Census Bureau data shows an increasingly optimistic picture for white Americans — but far less so for Americans of color, many of whom still face stark income disparities.

Released Tuesday, the numbers appear to show good news across the board in several key areas. Median household income in the United States in 2016 was $59,039 — a more than three percent rise from 2015 and the highest ever recorded. Poverty also saw a dip, as did the number of people without health insurance. The Census Bureau said that data reflects both a return to pre-recession levels, with 2.5 million people no longer living in poverty, and a precarious drop in the number of uninsured Americans, now around 8.8 percent of the population.

But the figures also show a grim reality. While white families now earn an average income of around $65,041, that picture is far less rosy for other racial demographics. Hispanic families earn around $47,675 — considerably lower than the over-arching average, $59,039. Worse off are Black families, who earn a median of $39,490, more than $25,000 less than their white counterparts. (The top earners, bringing in around $81,431 per year, are families identified as Asian, a broad demographic including those with origins across much of the Asian continent but outside of the Middle East.) Those numbers are despite the fact that medians for both Black and Hispanic households grew at twice the rate of white households in 2016.

The Census Bureau told ThinkProgress that no reason could be given for the gaps, and commentary could only be offered on the figures and trends. But experts and economists highlighted the data on social media, pointing to the numbers as a disconcerting sign that the figures reinforce income inequality in a damning way, one that also cuts along gendered lines. Janelle Jones, an economic analyst with the Economic Policy Institute, noted on Twitter that “earnings actually DECREASED for black women and Latinas” while they rose for white women (women of all races are still out-earned significantly by their male counterparts): [HERE

While the figures alone are striking, they aren’t the only indicator that the United States has a severe economic inequality issue. According to a new study by Prosperity Now and the Institute for Policy Studies, wealth trends for Black and Latinx families are dwindling, even as the United States becomes increasingly less white demographically. If the study is correct, the median wealth for Black families will be $0 by 2053; two decades later, Latinx families are expected to reach the same number.

“While households of color are projected to reach majority status by 2043, if the racial wealth divide is left unaddressed, median Black household wealth is on a path to hit zero by 2053 and median Latino household wealth is projected to hit zero twenty years later,” the report’s key findings note. “In sharp contrast, median White household wealth would climb to $137,000 by 2053.” [0 as in zero]

Wealth is about more than income — assets and ownership are an important component of how wealth is determined. But the study still points at an increasingly pressing issue. Projections indicate the United States will be majority non-white by 2044; if trends continue as they are now, that could mean serious repercussions for the U.S. economy, which will suffer along with many communities of color.

[Racists Must Rig Elections to Survive] Supreme Ct Stay Allows Texas to Use Racist Maps in 2018 Elections

Voting is a Hoax. From [HERE] Texas' gerrymandered House and Congressional districts will remain in place during the 2018 elections, after the U.S. Supreme Court issued a Tuesday stay on two lower court rulings that found the maps illegal and unconstitutional. After years of legal fighting, a three-judge federal panel in San Antonio rejected the maps last month. The court had hoped to move swiftly on drawing new maps before primary filing opens Nov. 11. But SCOTUS Justice Samuel Alito issued a temporary stay on Aug. 31, and now the high court has split 5-4 to use the current maps in the March primaries – and therefore the November 2018 general election.

This does not mean that SCOTUS has overturned the lower court rulings, or that the maps will stay in place forever. However, the justices have given Attorney General Ken Paxton time to file an appeal, which means the case will likely drag on into the 2019 election cycle. For context, Texans have been living with these gerrymandered maps since 2011, and the next redistricting is scheduled for 2021.

Austin Democrat Lloyd Doggett represents CD 35, one of the seats rejected by the lower court, and his response to SCOTUS' action was sanguine: "I have always maintained that the Supreme Court would have the final say on local congressional district lines," he said, "and tonight the Court just said it."

In Racist System Black Kids Are 5 Times More Likely Than White Kids to Get Locked Up

From [HERE] Since 2001, the number of kids in detention has dropped by more than half across the country—a seemingly decisive victory for juvenile-justice reformers. But digging into the numbers reveals a much bleaker picture. Recently released data from the Justice Department shows that black juveniles are five times likelier than white juveniles to be locked up. It’s not exactly a new phenomenon, but it’s a worsening one. 

The gap between black and white juvenile detention grew more than 20 percent from 2001 to 2015, according to the Sentencing Project, a criminal justice advocacy group that crunched the new data in a report out this week. As of 2015, about 44 percent of all kids in custody were black, even though African Americans make up just 16 percent of the total youth population in the United States.

“The disparity exists because of differences in how young people of color are treated at every point of contact with the justice system, but the growth of the incarceration disparity is likely due to growing disparities in arrests, which feeds the rest of the system,” Joshua Rovner, who studies juvenile justice at the Sentencing Project, tells Mother Jones.

Black kids are more than twice as likely as white kids to be arrested. But that’s not because black kids are committing so many more crimes; the data proves they’re not. Black and white youth are roughly as likely to get into fights, carry weapons, steal property, use and sell illicit substances, and commit status offenses, like skipping school,” the Sentencing Project found in a report last year.

White Rikers Cop Gets 30 Yr Sentence for Murder of Restrained Black Man: Kicked him in the Head Over & Over Again

From [HERE] and [HERE] A Manhattan federal judge on Wednesday imposed a 30-year prison sentence on Brian Coll, the white Rikers Island guard convicted last year of violating the civil rights of a restrained Black inmate by repeatedly kicking him in the head and causing his death.

“Any reasonable person knows that savagely and repeatedly kicking a person in the head creates a high risk of death or serious bodily injury,” U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska said. “There was nothing accidental or negligent about this.”

Preska imposed the sentence after prosecutors had called for a sentence of close to 30 years, citing Coll’s lack of remorse and the need to send a message about violence at Rikers.

 They said Coll got a teardrop tattoo after Spear’s death to memorialize the incident and kept a framed picture of Spear and a news article on his death on his wall.

The officer, Brian Coll, 48, kicked the inmate, Ronald Spear, repeatedly in the head while other officers held him face down on the floor, according to testimony and other evidence at the trial, which ended in December.

Mr. Coll then lifted Mr. Spear’s head and leaned in close, one witness, a fellow correction officer, testified. “This is what you get,” the witnessAnthony Torres (also a correction officer) said Mr. Coll told Mr. Spear, using an expletive. “Remember I did this.”

Mr. Torres had jumped in when the seriously ill Spears got into a fight with Coll, early one morning in December 2012.

Mr. Torres broke into tears as he testified about what happened next. He said Mr. Coll began to kick Mr. Spear repeatedly on the side of the head. Mr. Torres said Mr. Coll then pulled up Mr. Spear’s head and leaned forward. “This is what you get,” Mr. Coll told Mr. Spear, using an expletive. “Remember I did this.”

Mr. Coll was wearing heavy work boots at the time and Mr. Spear was being pinned face down on the ground by two officers, Jeannette A. Vargas, a proscutor explained to the jury.

“He kicked him again and again,” Ms. Vargas said. “He kicked him so hard that Mr. Spear started bleeding on the inside of his skull.”

Mr. Spear’s death in December 2012 was seen as highlighting the culture of violence and the code of silence among guards that has long existed at Rikers.

Mr. Spear, who was 52 at the time of the attack, was a pretrial detainee who had been at Rikers for about three months. Ms. Vargas told the jury that Mr. Spear was “seriously ill” with diabetes, heart disease and end-stage renal disease that required regular dialysis. He usually walked with a cane, she said, and wore a bracelet indicating he was at “risk of fall.” [MORE]

Prosecutors had said that Mr. Coll lied repeatedly after the assault, claiming Mr. Spear had attacked him with a cane, and persuading other officers to lie as well. Mr. Coll was also convicted of charges that included obstruction of justice and falsifying records.

New York City paid $2.75 million to settle a lawsuit filed by Mr. Spear’s family. The city also ultimately settled a class-action lawsuit that had been brought by the United States attorney’s office, the Legal Aid Society and a private law firm; the settlement mandated systemwide reforms at Rikers.

Mr. Spear’s death came at a time of increased attention on violence in the city’s jails, including by the office of Preet Bharara, the United States attorney in Manhattan, class-action lawyers and the news media. Last year, a federal judge approved a settlement of a lawsuit in which the city agreed to far-reaching reforms, including the appointment of a monitor, to address pervasive brutality in the jail complex.

The United States attorney’s office in Manhattan, which has made violence at Rikers a focus of its civil rights investigations and prosecutions, said Mr. Coll should receive a “significant” sentence “well beyond” the roughly four to six years Mr. Coll’s lawyers have recommended.

The jury found that Mr. Coll had deprived Mr. Spear of his constitutional right to be free from excessive force and that Mr. Coll’s actions had resulted in Mr. Spear’s death — for which he can face up to life in prison.

“Coll’s conduct was brutal; it was violent, it was willful, and it was callous,” the office of Joon H. Kim, the acting United States attorney, wrote.

Department of Racism [DOJ] Declines to Bring Federal Charges Against Cops Who Folded Freddie Gray Like a Crab

Seeing is Not Believing. It is Knowing. Although all investigation focused on what happened or did not happen inside the police van, eyewitness accounts suggested that the white cops involved used unnecessary force against Gray during the arrest outside the van—a claim denied by all officers involved. [MORE] and [MORE] and [MORE]. It is clear that when Gray was arrested in West Baltimore on the morning of April 12, he was struggling to walk. His legs appear to be limp. However, when racist suspects see him struggling to walk and hear him screaming on the video they must believe he is acting or pretending to be hurt. Above you can see and hear the loud screams of Mr. Gray before he is placed in the van. Witnesses said the cops "folded him" and had "their knees in his back" and "he was screaming."  

Authorities never provided a lawful reason for why police arrested Gray. According to the city, an officer made eye contact with Gray, and he took off running, so they pursued him. [MORE] Without more, flight or running from the presence of cops is not a basis for arrest and does not establish probable cause. [MORE] White media, cops and prosecutors don't give a fuck about any of all that though.  

In a system of racism/white supremacy YOU can be legally executed anytime, any place by white cops. 

Did He Fold Himself Up & Snap His Own Spine? White Prosecutors Remain Mystified by Liar Cops. From [HERE] and [HERE] Lawyers for Freddie Gray’s family say family members are “devastated and disappointed” with the Justice Department decision not to bring federal charges against Baltimore police for the 2015 death of Freddie Gray.

Gray suffered fatal injuries while in police custody, and his death sparked days of protesting, which turned to rioting at times, in Baltimore.

“They are disappointed that no one will be held accountable for their son’s tragic death, which occurred while in police custody,” said attorney Hassan Murphy.

Skeptical that politics may have played a role in the DOJ’s decision not to bring civil rights charges against any of the Baltimore police officers, Murphy and his law partner-father, attorney Billy Murphy, visited the federal agency to learn the justification for its decision.

“We have to admit that we left satisfied with the investigation undertaken by this particular group of lawyers at the Department of Justice, most of, or all of them, holdovers from the Obama administration, and they were frank and forthright about the things they had done and the steps they had taken in this investigation,” Murphy said.

However, the department's decision was not unexpected. In the aftermath of Gray's death and the ensuing violence, local authorities brought charges, ranging from manslaughter to reckless endangerment, against six police officers involved in arresting and transporting Gray. Three officers were acquitted and charges against three others were dropped.

The family reached a $6.4 million settlement with the city for Gray’s April 2015 death.

Five of the officers still face police department disciplinary hearings scheduled for the end of October.

The Gray family lawyers acknowledged that the DOJ has limited jurisdiction and also faces a higher burden of proof in lodging federal charges.

'We Can Execute Blacks Anytime, So Of Course We Can Kick them': Columbus Cops Try to Justify Beating Black Man

From [HERECell phone video recorded by bystanders in a Columbus, Ohio store shows white police officers using excessive force on a black man who police said was resisting arrest.

According to local TV station NBC4i, the man’s name is Timothy Davis, and video shows officers repeatedly kicking and punching Davis while he was down. Police claimed Davis “tensed up to fight,” and took officers down with him.

In cell phone videos, people at the store where Davis was arrested said the police used excessive force.

“They’re beating the f**k out of him,” one man said. “They’re beating his ass. That’s a lawsuit.”

“We are allowed to punch and we are allowed to kick,” Police Spokesman Sgt. Dean Worthington told the NBC affiliate. “That’s part of our use of force continuum and it all depends on what the behavior of the suspect is at the time.” 

Davis, who has a warrant out for his arrest, reportedly has a record of charges related to resisting arrest and assault. Of course, the white cops did not know about the warrants prior to interacting with him; during the relevant time he was just another nigger to them. 

Public outcry about the alleged use of excessive force led to anti-police brutality protests in Davis’s honor in Columbus.

In a statement, Columbus police spokesman, Sgt. Dean Worthington, told Raw Story that while officers are legally allowed to use “reasonable force” to arrest suspects, there is currently an Internal Affairs investigation within their police division as to whether the force officers used on Davis was, in fact, reasonable.

“We’re looking into it,” Worthington said in his statement.

After Citrus Cops Torture & Burn Black Man's Face on Hot Asphalt, DA Drops Charges but Seeks Parole Punishment

From [HERE] The Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office plans to drop felony criminal charges against a man who suffered severe burns while Citrus Heights police pinned him to the hot asphalt following an incident at a restaurant this summer.

At a brief court hearing Monday, attorneys said the DA intends to dismiss charges against James Bradford Nelson, 28, who bears thick scars on his chest, face and buttocks as a result of his encounter with police on June 23.

Nelson currently is charged with trying to rob a KFC restaurant employee of his wallet, as well as being under the influence of a controlled substance and resisting a police officer.

DA spokeswoman Shelly Orio confirmed Monday afternoon that in light of the “unique facts and circumstances” of Nelson’s case, the office only will pursue allegations that he violated parole, which carry far lighter penalties.

“We have determined that the range of penalties available for a parole violation are sufficient” in Nelson’s case, Orio said. [This is deception. Parole boards can make any parolee vanish whenever they want to. For real.]

The DA will allege Nelson violated parole by committing battery on a KFC employee, trying to steal that person’s wallet and resisting arrest, she said. He faces a maximum of 180 days in the county jail for such violations, versus potentially years in state prison on the current charges.

Nelson’s mother and stepfather, Tarsha and Barry Benigno, said they were relieved about the development. But they said police used excessive force against Nelson, and should be held accountable for his injuries.

Citrus Heights police Chief Ron Lawrence has defended the actions of his officers, arguing that Nelson was dangerously violent and tried to flee from officers on the day they encountered him.

The Benignos said Nelson was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia as a teenager, and that his life has been a constant cycle of arrests and incarcerations related to his psychotic outbursts. In recent years, he has been convicted of attempted robbery and other offenses.

“He had a mental episode in Citrus Heights, and now he’s scarred for life,” Tarsha Benigno said.

Nelson’s injuries occurred after police received calls that someone was acting erratically at a KFC on Auburn Boulevard in Citrus Heights. Officers said he tried to flee from them and was acting violently, forcing them to hold him down in a parking lot on an afternoon in which the temperature in Sacramento reached triple digits.

Nelson ended up at UC Davis Medical Center, where he spent weeks in the intensive care unit and underwent three skin-graft surgeries to cover second- and third-degree burns.

In a recent interview at the Stockton home of his parents, Nelson bore heavy scars that he said cause him constant pain and limit his mobility. Nelson since has turned himself in to authorities at the Sacramento County Main Jail, where he remains until his case is resolved.

At Monday’s court hearing, defense attorney Alan Jose asked that Nelson, who is being held on $500,000 bail, be released on his own recognizance because of his medical condition.

“He is not a flight risk. He is not a threat to the community,” Jose argued, as Nelson sat in a wheelchair next to him. “He really is medically frail,” and has prescriptions for strong pain medications, including morphine, that he is not receiving in jail, the lawyer said.

“With all due respect to the Sheriff’s Department, they are not equipped” to care for someone with such serious injuries, Jose said.

Judge Jaime Roman, in response to a request by Deputy DA Sam Nong, declined to release Nelson immediately and scheduled a hearing for Friday on the matter.

"Why are you doing this to me? I have a room here": White Cops Choked Handcuffed Black Woman in Hotel - Omaha Settles

Racist Cops Get Angry in the Presence of ColorJazmyne McMiller says a white Omaha cop pulled her from an elevator and violently pushed her against a wall and into the hotel's registration desk as she tried to tell him she was a hotel guest and show him her room card key. Then McMiller said one officer forcefully arrested her and choked her while in handcuffs. WOWT 6 News obtained exclusive surveillance video of the incident.

"Why are you doing this to me? I have a room here," said McMiller, who said she repeated this phrase to an officer dozens of times the night of November 30th.

McMiller and her friend, Tynesha Oliver, said they booked rooms at the Downtown Hilton weeks in advance to attend the Terence Crawford boxing match at the CenturyLink Center. When McMiller arrived back at the hotel with her father, Eugene McMiller, she was told there had been a fight in the hotel lobby.

Numerous officers responded to help clear up the mess, which can be seen in the hotel's surveillance video. McMiller was met by Oliver in the lobby, who said she also just learned of the fight.

"As I was going into the elevator, the elevator doors were opened by an officer. They were asking us to show proof that we were guests at the hotel," said McMiller, "I proceeded to show them my key card, I'm a guest here. And then they just snatched me off the elevator, slammed me into the wall and handcuffed me."

"We asked him, what is she being arrested for and he said mind your business before you end up in jail, so I didn't say anything else to him," said Oliver.

In the video, McMiller can be seen walking past the elevator doors in handcuffs and then walk to the receptionist counter.

"The guy at the Hilton says yes, she does have a room here and once he said that the officer just went irate. He just grabbed me by my neck while I'm in handcuffs, and just picked me up off my feet and slammed me onto the countertop," said McMiller.

Then the white cop lied about it. [all racists are liars; white supremacy is carried out primarily through deception]. 

In the police report the officer states: "At the front desk, McMiller was confirmed as a guest and she turned to [him] and began yelling at [him] and pushed her face closely to [him] (within a couple inches) and began spitting in [his] face while speaking." [MORE]

From [HERE] The city of Omaha has reached a $40,000 settlement with a woman who says police used excessive force when they arrested her at a downtown hotel.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that the City Council voted Tuesday to approve the settlement with Jazmyne McMiller, who was arrested in 2014 at the Hilton Garden Inn.

Officer Fred Hiykel had been called to the hotel for a disturbance. McMiller says Hiykel pulled her from an elevator and violently pushed her against a wall and into the hotel's registration desk as she tried to tell him she was a hotel guest and show him her room card key.

Hiykel denied shoving McMiller into the desk and said she screamed at and spat on him.

A charge of disorderly conduct against McMiller was later dismissed.

60 yr Old Black Woman Asked White Corrections Cop for Juice So He Slammed Her Down to the Floor of Ohio Jail 

From [HERE] A Black woman in Ohio is filing a lawsuit against the Montgomery County Jail claiming excessive force was used against her by white cops. Marsha Pate-Strickland is suing for this video-tapped incident which happened in 2015.

Pate-Strickland says it all began when she asked a white corrections officer at the jail if she could exchange her juice for milk. Then as it goes with maniac white cops in this system, all hell breaks loose. 

In the video-- you see the white officer grabbed her and slammed her to the floor. She wanted to exchange her juice for milk.

That’s when the 60-year-old was ordered to stand up, then was forcefully grabbed by corrections officer (CO) David Stemp and “violently swung” around before her right shoulder and arm were slammed to the floor, according to a federal lawsuit filed against the county, Sheriff Phil Plummer and others. Pate-Strickland said she complained that her arm and shoulder were injured... But she refused medical attention.

The video — which has no audio — shows male inmates passing out breakfast items to several women in the female waiting area at about 5:30 a.m. Sept. 8, 2015.

A corrections officer approaches Pate-Strickland, and the two have a conversation before Pate-Strickland stands up and the officer reaches toward the inmate’s left arm.

When Pate-Strickland pulls her arm away, the officer is shown grabbing the inmate by her left arm, pulling her, spinning her and taking her down to the floor.

“There’s just no reason for the CO — to grab onto this 60-year-old woman and fling her around,” Brannon said.

Pate-Strickland immediately complained of an injury. Defendant Greg Mills, a nurse for Naphcare, Inc., performed a visual inspection “and concluded that she suffered no injury” because the shoulder did not appear to be “out of place” and handed Pate-Strickland an ice pack, according to the lawsuit. The lawsuit was filed Sept. 6 and the county has not yet filed a response.

The lawsuit filed in Dayton’s U.S. District Court claims Mills refused to send Pate-Strickland to a hospital and that she complained to other jail staff. Naphcare, Inc. is the contracted provider for medical care in the jail. We have reached out to Naphcare’s attorney and will update this story when we receive a response. 

Pate-Strickland sought medical attention at an area hospital after her release from jail and was diagnosed with a “comminuted right humeral head/neck fracture,” according to the lawsuit. [MORE]

[Snitches in Service of White Supremacy] Motel 6 Outing Non-White Guests to ICE Immigration Officials

Motel 6 Operating L.P. is an American privately-owned hospitality company with a chain of budget motels in the United States and Canada. Motel 6 also operates Studio 6, a chain of extended stay hotels. In October 2012, Accor Hotels concluded the sale of the Motel 6 chain to The Blackstone Group for $1.9 billion. The Blackstone Group then established G6 Hospitality LLC as the management company for Motel 6 and Studio 6.

The Blackstone Group L.P. is an American multinational private equity, alternative asset management and financial services firm based in New York City. As the largest alternative investment firm in the world, Blackstone specializes in private equity, credit and hedge fund investment strategies

Stephen Allen Schwarzman is the chairman and CEO of The Blackstone Group, which he established in 1985 with former US Secretary of Commerce Pete Peterson. His personal fortune is estimated at $10.2 billion as of January 2017. As of 2017, Forbes ranked Schwarzman at 113th on its World's Billionaires List.

In late 2016, Schwarzman "helped put together a team of corporate executives to advise President Donald Trump] on jobs and the economy. The group includes JPMorgan Chase (JPM) CEO Jamie Dimon, Walt Disney (DIS) boss Bob Iger and former GE leader Jack Welch. CEOs on President Trump's business councils were pressured by both customers of their firms and shareholders to back out of the council following Trump's comments -- or lack thereof -- following events that rocked Charlottesville, Virginia, last month, said Blackstone Group (BX - Get Report) CEO Stephen Schwarzman at CNBC and Institutional Investor's Delivering Alpha conference in New York on Tuesday, Sept. 12.

Stop Supporting White Supremacy. From [ThinkProgress]  Two Motel 6 locations in the Phoenix area are reportedly sending guest lists to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials on a daily basis. According to a report by the Phoenix New Times, this has resulted in at least 20 arrests at the two locations between February and August of this year.

Though neither management at the locations nor Motel 6’s corporate office responded to questions about this practice, at least one employee was fairly forthcoming. “We send a report every morning to ICE — all the names of everybody that comes in,” a front-desk clerk told the paper. “Every morning at about 5 o’clock, we do the audit and we push a button and it sends it to ICE.”

ICE was mum about the “investigative techniques” it uses, but Phoenix Police department spokesperson Jonathan Howard confirmed that “[o]n occasion and through informal contacts, various hotels and motels have shared their guest lists with officers.”

Local immigration attorneys Ray Ybarra Maldonado and Robert McWhirter confirmed that they had clients who’d been arrested at one of the Motel 6 locations. In one case, for example, a statement of probable cause indicated that ICE’s Mobile Criminal Alien Unit was “following a lead” when they “encountered” one of Maldonado’s clients, but the fact that they had his exact room number when he was only staying there one night “was too much of a coincidence.” Maldonado believes ICE compares the guest lists with warrant lists to find individuals who are undocumented.

According to the New Times’ investigation, about a third of the cases indicated that ICE encountered a suspect during a “knock and talk,” wherein officers show up without a warrant and ask permission to enter the room.

This isn’t the first time Motel 6 has been scrutinized for sharing guest information with police. In 2015, the Providence Journal reported on a Motel 6 in Warwick, Rhode Island that was similarly providing police with a daily guest list. Like the current situation at the Phoenix location, guests were not notified their information would be shared.

At the time, Victor Glover, vice president of safety and security for G6 Hospitality (the corporation that owns and operates the Motel 6 chain), said that informing hotel guests that their information would transmitted to police “is not a normal process of our check-in.” Glover explained that Motel 6 generally shares guest lists with police when asked to do so.

Hotels, however, are not legally required to provide police with guest information, which can often include identification records (like a driver’s license), credit cards, and car make and license plate. A few years ago, a group of hotel owners in Los Angeles challenged a city law requiring them to let police see this documentation, and the U.S. Supreme Court agreed that they can’t legally be forced to share that information. But hotels are still able to share it if they so desire.

The New Times concluded that, for its part, Motel 6 appears “extremely enthusiastic about cooperating with law enforcement.”

Both Phoenix locations are corporate owned (i.e. not operated as franchises) and G6 Hospitality refused to respond to questions “over a period of several weeks.” ThinkProgress similarly reached out to G6 Hospitality for comment but did not receive an immediate response.

53 yrs after the Civil Rights Act Outlawed Discrimination the Gap in Wages btw Blacks & Whites Continues to Grow

[Laws are not power. Laws do not protect us. How gullible are we to believe that "legislation" created & funded by racist suspect white legislators, administered/enforced by white prosecutors & Gov workers and "remedied" by white judges and jurors would actually produce justice for Black people?] [MORE]

From [HERE] The gap in employment and earnings between black and white workers in the US is nothing new. Still, 53 years after the Civil Rights Act outlawed discrimination, research from the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco shows that the gap in wages between races has widened in recent years. 

The research also highlights a particularly concerning aspect of this: the increase in the wage gap between black and white workers is also becoming more difficult to explain. That’s to say that the disparity in earnings that cannot be tied to location, education, working hours, job type, or age, is increasing.

In 1979, the average black man in the US earned about 80% of the average white man’s hourly wage. By 2016, the average black man earned just 70% as much. Among women, in 1979 the average black woman earned 95% of the average white woman’s wage, but last year this had fallen to 82%.

If, according to economic theory, wages are a reflection of productivity, this gap should be explained by “observable” factors such as age, education, and job type. Location and part-time work status are also easily measured. Researchers at the San Francisco Fed went further, trying to quantify how much these observable factors explained the gap, instead of harder-to-measure factors, such as institutions, historical pay norms, discrimination, and the public policies like the minimum wage.

In the charts below, the black line plots the earnings gap in each year and the bars separate out the factors causing it. The red bar shows the “unexplained” difference.

While education, industry, and occupation explain most of the difference, the researchers puzzled over a large part of the difference that couldn’t easily be accounted for. In a recently published paper, they write:

Perhaps more troubling is the fact that the growth in this unexplained portion accounts for almost all of the growth in the gaps over time. For example, in 1979 about 8 percentage points of the earnings gap for men was unexplained by readily measurable factors, accounting for over a third of the gap. By 2016, this portion had risen to almost 13 percentage points, just under half of the total earnings gap. A similar pattern holds for black women.

The pattern for women is even more perplexing. The “unexplained” factor suddenly starts to widen the wage gap between black and white women starting in the mid-1980s. It grows rapidly from there.

This research builds on a more in-depth study by the Federal Reserve (pdf) published in June. That paper also found that observable factors were unable to explain the growing wage gap. By comparison, the wage gap between Hispanic and white workers was notably smaller and mostly explained by differing levels of education.

The most important question is, then, how much of this “unexplained” gap between black and white workers is down to discrimination? The short answer: probably most of it. [MORE]

The only thing "perplexing" here is that the racist suspect writer of this article has ommitted the entire context of these wage differences; the system of racism/white supremacy. An answer to this inquiry is what Nelly Fuller describes as the "refinement of racism/white supremacy."

For 2nd Time in 2 Yrs, Georgia Prepares to Murder a Mentally Retarded Black Man Whom a White Juror Called Nigger

From [HERE] and [HERE] For the second time in as many years, Georgia is preparing to execute an intellectually disabled African-American man, despite evidence that the death verdict in his case may have been tainted by a white juror's profound racial bias. Lawyers for Keith Leroy Tharpe, whose IQ has been measured in the 60s and whom Georgia has scheduled to be executed on September 26, say the courts should reconsider his case in light of the racial slurs a white juror made about him. [in photo racist suspects, Gov. Nathan Deal and Attorney General Chris Carr, who is up for re-election in 2018] 

They say new U.S. Supreme Court decisions clearly prohibit death sentences based on race and permit defendants to inquire into racist statements by jurors. While preparing his appeal, Tharpe's lawyers interviewed jurors from his case, including one who openly referred to Tharpe with the N-word while saying the victim, Tharpe's sister-in-law, had come from a family of "'good' black folks." [The N-word means nigger. Nigger is what is being done to you. In the absence of white supremacy, niggers would not exist. MORE] 

The juror's affidavit also said that, if the victim "had been the type Tharpe is, then picking between life or death for Tharpe wouldn't have mattered so much."

Under questioning by prosecutors, the juror, who is white, testified that he had been drinking on the day Tharpe's defense team had initially interviewed him and on a second day on which they asked him to sign a statement that they had prepared based upon the prior interview. The juror denied that he had intended his use of the N-word in a racist way and contended that race had not affected his deliberations.

The state's racist suspect lawyers successfully argued that the court should not reconsider Tharpe's legal challenge based upon the evidence of racial bias—which prosecutors characterized as "racially insensitive offhand remarks"—because the jurors statements did not constitute an "extraordinary circumstance" and Georgia law did not permit inquiry into the content of the jury's deliberations.

They further argued that there was no evidence that the jury's sentencing deliberations had been tainted by racial animus.

In April 2016, Georgia executed Kenneth Fults, another African-American prisoner, despite strikingly similar evidence that he was intellectually disabled and that his sentence may have been the product of racial animus.

In Fults' case, a white juror submitted a written affidavit saying, “I don’t know if he ever killed anybody, but that (N-word) got just what should have happened. Once he pled guilty, I knew I would vote for the death penalty because that’s what that (N-word) deserved.”
