Amos Wilson: The White Brotherhood Collective 

The archetypal White brotherhood collective, like the brotherhood collectives which characterize other ethnic groups, has taken and takes many different forms such as bands of warriors, priesthoods, monastic orders, guilds, consortiums, and the like (Smith, 1990). These collectives, based on commonalities of ethnicity, cultural values and goals, take advantage of the group-mind their association breeds to "create a wide variety of rule-governed social practices such as language, games, trading, and markets, and mythic structures such as law. politics, and religion" (Smith. 1990). Generally, all the members of the brotherhood are considered to be equal to each other and strive to achieve homogeneity. They are disturbed and disrupted by difference and therefore are motivated to deny it and to exclude or marginalize those members within the group whose biological and/or cultural differences may be too obvious. For these reasons such groups tend toward racism and sexism.

Black men, particularly if they insist on not denying their Afrikan descent, will rarely, if ever, be accepted as the same as White men by the White brotherhood collective. Their achievement of equal status within this brethren is highly unlikely or impossible. The White brotherhood collective as such, functions primarily as the central instrument of White power — a power in good part based on its subordination and exploitation of Afrikan and other non-White peoples, as well as the lower classes of White peoples. Therefore Blacks cannot simultaneously be at one with and at the same time separate subjects of White power.

As J.C. Smith contends, "monopoly is the essence of power." The exercise of power by the White American ruling elite requires that it retains a monopoly of three kinds of power — physical or military power, economic power, and ideological power. "Physical power entails the capacity to use brute force on other persons [or peoples]. Economic power entails the capacity to grant or withhold economic benefits, whether in terms of money, property, or resources. Ideological power consists of the capacity to affect other people's actions by persuasion" (Smith, ibid). It is the monopolistic possession by the ruling White brotherhood collective of a combination of physical, economic, and ideological power which enables it to dominate the other white classes and the Afrikan American community. That this view of power monopolies allows the White brotherhood collective to dominate American society is in essence the same as that advanced by C.W. Wright Mills in his seminal and controversial analysis of power in America, in his popular book The Power Elite. Power in America, according to Mills, is possessed and controlled by a single, interlocking structure of power — a power elite whose power is concentrated at the top of three domains: "the corporation chieftains, the political directorate [governmental organizations], and the warlords [military organizations]. Other important institutions are subordinate to and generally supportive of those three major institutions of power.

The Routine Traffic Stop from Start to Finish: Too Much "Routine", not Enough 4th Amendment

The subject of this Article is an exceedingly important one, as is reflected by the fact that in recent years more Fourth Amendment battles have been fought about police activities incident to what the courts call a "routine traffic stop" n7 than in any other context. There is a reason why this is so, and it is not that police have taken an intense interest in such matters as burned-out taillights and unsignaled lane changes per se. Rather, as anyone not on a trip to Mars over the past decade or so is surely aware, the renewed interest of the police in traffic enforcement is attributable to a federally sponsored initiative related to the "war on drugs." n8 Both in urban areas and on the [*1845] interstates, police are on the watch for "suspicious" travelers, and when a modicum of supposedly suspicious circumstances are observed - or, perhaps, even on a hunch or pursuant to such arbitrary considerations as the color of the driver's skin n9 - it is only a matter of time before some technical or trivial offense produces the necessary excuse for a traffic stop. n10 Perhaps because the offenses are often so insignificant, n11 the driver may be told at the outset that he will merely be given a warning. But then things get ugly. As a part of the "routine," a criminal-history and outstanding-warrants records check is run on the driver and passengers; they are closely questioned about their identities, the reason for their travels, their intended destinations, and the like, and may be quizzed as to whether they have drugs on their persons or in the vehicle. The driver may be induced to submit to a full search of the vehicle, or a drug-sniffing dog may appear on the scene and "do his thing."

[*1846] My favorite illustration of this tactic is United States v. Roberson. n12 A Texas state trooper on patrol at night passed a van and noted it had out-of-state plates and four black occupants, so he pulled off onto the shoulder after cresting a hill, turned his lights off, and then observed the van change lanes to provide more distance between it and the vehicle parked on the shoulder. The lane change was unaccompanied by a signal, which hardly seems remarkable in view of the fact that the van was "the only moving vehicle on that stretch of road," but the trooper "obviously regarded this as a serious traffic offense," for he pulled the van over. n13 He then questioned the van's occupants on unrelated matters and finally exacted consent to search the vehicle, which resulted in the discovery of drugs. Despite the court's familiarity with this trooper's "propensity for patroling the fourth amendment's outer frontier" and his "remarkable record" of turning traffic stops into drug arrests on 250 prior occasions, the defendants in Roberson were deemed to be without any basis to challenge the stop because, after all, the trooper had "observed a traffic infraction before stopping the vehicle"! n14

Cases of this genre raise a number of important issues concerning the Fourth Amendment legalities of the "routine traffic stop" from start to finish. As to the start, there are various questions concerning the limitations upon when such a stop may be initiated. As to the finish, there are questions concerning what is necessary to constitute a termination of custody and what official actions thereafter will or will not constitute a new seizure. And then there is the in-between, that critical period between start and finish; as to it, there is another set of questions concerning how long the seizure may continue and what investigative techniques and tactics are permissible during that interval.

[file under the refinement of white supremacy] Are 95% of defendants guilty? Prosecutors Using their Powers to Compel Guilty Pleas with Snitches 

From [HERE] A new article in the Economist examines how recent legal changes have placed, perhaps, an overabundance of power in the hands of American prosecutors. According to the article, the changes include “an explosion” of cases ending in guilty pleas and a high number of cases in which defendants become informants, speaking out against one another in exchange for deals that will lessen their charges or sentences.
 
The Economist reports: … American prosecutors are more powerful than ever before. Several legal changes have empowered them. The first is the explosion of plea bargaining, where a suspect agrees to plead guilty to a lesser charge if the more serious charges against him are dropped. Plea bargains were unobtainable in the early years of American justice. But today more than 95% of cases end in such deals and thus are never brought to trial.

Jed Rakoff, a district judge in New York, thinks it unlikely that 95% of defendants are guilty. Of the 2.4m Americans behind bars, he thinks it possible that “thousands, perhaps tens of thousands” confessed despite being innocent. One reason they might do so is because of harsh, mandatory-minimum sentencing rules can make such a choice rational. Rather than risk a trial and a 30-year sentence, some cop a plea and accept a much shorter one.

Do we really all breathe the same air? Pollution is segregated, too

From [HERE] Studies dating back to the 1970s have pointed to a consistent pattern in who lives near the kinds of hazards --  toxic waste sites, landfills, congested highways -- that few of us would willingly choose as neighbors. The invariable answer: poor people and communities of color.

This pattern of "environmental injustice" suggests that minorities may contend every day with disproportionate health risks from tailpipe exhaust or coal plant emissions. But these health risks are harder to quantify than, say, the number of power plants in a city. And most of the research that has tried to do this has been limited to a single metropolitan area, or to those few places that happen to have good monitoring data on pollution.

Now, however, researchers at the University of Minnesota, writing in the journal PLOS ONE, have created a sweeping picture of unequal exposure to one key pollutant -- nitrogen dioxide, produced by cars, construction equipment and industrial sources -- that's been linked to higher risks of asthma and heart attack. They've found, all over the country, in even the most rural states and the cleanest cities, that minorities are exposed to more of the pollution than whites.

"The biggest finding is that we have this national picture of environmental injustice and how it varies by state and by city," says Julian Marshall, a professor of environmental engineering at the University of Minnesota and one of the authors of the study along with Lara P. Clark and Dylan B. Millet. "The levels of disparity that we see here are large and likely have health implications."

Specifically, they found that minorities are on average exposed to 38 percent higher levels of outdoor NO2 than whites in the communities where they live, based on demographic data from the 2000 census. That gap varies across the country, though, and it's substantially wider in the biggest cities. Nationwide, the difference in exposure is akin to approximately 7,000 deaths a year from heart disease.

"It’s a shockingly large number," Marshall says. "You’re taking what's a major killer of people [in heart disease] and increasing it slightly, by a few percent. But that’s a lot."

Regionally, the disparities are largest in the upper Midwest and the Northeast, but the model Marshall and his coauthors developed can drill down from there. These maps show the differences in average exposure to NO2 between low-income nonwhites and high-income whites: [MORE]

US to sell Saudi Arabia $1.75 Billion worth of Patriot air defenses: Lockheed Martin and Raytheon hit Jackpot with War 

From [HERE] The US State Department has approved sales of Patriot PAC-3 missile complexes to Saudi Arabia, the US primary ally in the Arab world. At the moment Riyadh operates previous versions of the same air defense missile complexes.

Saudi Arabia will get a whole set of air defense systems, consisting of Patriot Advanced Capability (PAC)-3 missiles with containers and other associated equipment, including “2 PAC-3 Telemetry Kits, 6 Fire Solution Computers, 36 Launcher Station Modification Kits, 2 Missile Round Trainers, 2 PAC-3 Slings, 6 Patriot Automated Logistics Systems Kits, 6 Shorting Plugs, spare and repair part,” the US Defense Security Cooperation Agency reported.

US Defense Contractors Getting Paid Off on so-called ISIS and al-Qaeda Offensive 

From [HERE] Stock prices for Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, Raytheon and Northrop Grumman set all-time record highs last week as it became increasingly clear that President Obama was committed to a massive, sustained air war in Iraq and Syria.

It’s nothing short of a windfall for these and other huge defense contractors, who’ve been getting itchy about federal budget pressures that threatened to slow the rate of increase in military spending.

Now, with U.S. forces literally blowing through tens of millions of dollars of munitions a day, the industry is not just counting on vast spending to replenish inventory, but hoping for a new era of reliance on supremely expensive military hardware.

“To the extent we can shift away from relying on troops and rely more heavily on equipment — that could present an opportunity,” Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at BMO Private Bank, whose $66 billion portfolio includes Northrop Grumman Corp. and Boeing Co. shares, told Bloomberg.

Defense contractor stocks have far exceeded the performance of the broader market. A Bloomberg index of four of the largest Pentagon contractors rose 19 percent this year, compared to 2.2 percent for the S&P 500.

It’s the munition makers who “stand to reap the biggest windfall, especially in the short term,” says Fortune magazine, citing Raytheon’s long-range Tomahawk missiles, and Lockheed Martin’s Hellfires, among others. “Small diameter bombs could be a huge winner, since aircraft can carry more of them in a single sortie,” one analyst tells the magazine.

U.S. forces used 47 Tomahawk missiles on Monday alone, at $1.5 million apiece.

Smart “small-diameter bombs” cost about $250,000 each. [MORE]

Where's All that White Media Outrage? White Actor sued for assault, battery, sexual battery of Latino Woman [Woman Claims Charlie Sheen Assaulted Her]

Why do White Americans need to criminalize significant segments of the African American population? What is the sociopolitical function of alleged African American criminality and self-destructive behavior in American society? How does alleged Black American criminality sustain the American status quo? How is "criminal motivation" induced into the personalities and social relations of some African Americans and for what reasons? [MORE]

From [HERE] Charlie Sheen has been sued by a dental tech who claims the actor cursed at her, tried to pull off her bra and punched her in the chest during a dentist appointment.     

Dental technician Margarita Palestino sued Sheen in Superior Court on Friday in a complaint for assault, battery, sexual battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.     

According to her 7-page complaint, Sheen arrived at dentist George Bogen's clinic on North Larchmont Avenue on Sept. 25 for an appointment.     

By the time Sheen had left, Palestino claims, he had assaulted her, left spit all over the walls, sent dental instruments and expletives flying, and stabbed an examination chair repeatedly with a knife.     Bogen told Palestino after Sheen had left that the star was drunk and high on crack, cocaine and Theradol, according to her Oct. 3 lawsuit in Superior Court.     

Palestino claims that Sheen's personal assistant paid her off with $500 to make up for the actor's alleged behavior.     

Sheen denied that he was on drugs or had assaulted anyone, according to TMZ. Sheen's camp said that he had a bad reaction to the nitrous oxide he was given. The star's lawyer Martin Singer told TMZ on Oct. 2 that the tech had filed suit after she was fired.

White Georgia judge says Black Man Can't Prove he is Mentally Disabled Beyond a Reasonable Doubt - Execution to Proceed  

From [HERE] and [HERE] A judge from Georgia's Towaliga Judicial Circuit ruled Monday that death row inmate Warren Lee Hill has failed to meet the state's requirement to prove intellectual disability beyond a reasonable doubt as a bar to execution. Hill's lawyers argued Georgia's high standard for proving intellectual disability is inadequate because psychiatric diagnoses are subject to a degree of uncertainty. Hill's lawyers based their argument on a set of US Supreme Court [official website] decisions. First in 2002 in the case of Atkins v. Virginia [opinion, PDF] the Court held "death is not a suitable punishment for a mentally retarded criminal," reasoning that their disability "places them at special risk of wrongful execution." Additionally in May the Supreme Court in Hall v. Florida [SCOTUSblog backgrounder] struck down a Florida law that held the death penalty for criminal defendants whose IQ is greater than 70 violates the Eighth Amendment [text] of the US Constitution, and the court found a defendant whose IQ is close to the 70-point cutoff has the right to present additional testimony of his or her mental disability. Georgia sets a high bar for defendants to prove intellectual disability for death row inmates beyond a reasonable doubt and the state court's interpretation of Georgia law is regarded as the toughest burden of proof in the nation [AP report]. The Georgia standard has repeatedly been upheld by state and federal courts. In Monday's ruling Judge Thomas Wilson declared the court is "procedurally barred" from considering Hill's latest challenge because he failed to present any new evidence to support his petition.

Ebola is spreading at a "terrifying rate," with five people infected with the deadly virus every hour in Sierra Leone alone

From [HERE] Ebola is spreading at a "terrifying rate," with five people infected with the deadly virus every hour in Sierra Leone alone, according to data published Thursday by human rights organization Save the Children. [images of ebola [HERE] viewer discretion is advised.] 

The London-based group estimates the rate of infected persons in the West African country will increase to 10 every hour if nothing is done to curb Ebola’s spread.

"The scale of the Ebola epidemic is devastating and growing every day, with five people infected every hour in Sierra Leone last week," Justin Forsyth, chief executive of Save the Children, said in a statement. "We need a coordinated international response that ensures treatment centers are built and staffed immediately."

The organization’s infection-rate figures are based on both confirmed cases and an estimate of how many cases are not being reported.

Save the Children’s urgent plea for a more concerted effort to tackle the virus came as Britain hosted an international conference titled "Defeating Ebola: Sierra Leone" in London on Thursday where officials announced plans to build up to 1,000 makeshift clinics in the African nation.

The new clinics will offer little, if any, treatment, but they will get sick people out of their homes, away from their families and hopefully slow the infection rate. Only a fraction of Ebola patients in Sierra Leone are now in treatment centers.

"If we don't do anything, we'll just be watching people die," said Dr. Margaret Harris, spokeswoman for the World Health Organization.

While Ebola continues to ravage West Africa, Sierra Leone is one of the hardest-hit countries. The virus has killed more than 3,300 people and infected at least twice as many in West Africa.

Experts say the virus will continue to spread rapidly unless authorities can reach and isolate at least 70 percent of infected persons. Dozens of Ebola treatment centers have been promised, but they could take weeks or even months to be constructed. [MORE]

Mostly White Ferguson Grand jury [9 of 12] being investigated for misconduct

What is White Collective Power? From [HERE] The St. Louis County prosecutor’s office is investigating an accusation of misconduct on the grand jury that is hearing the case against the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Ed Magee, the spokesman for county prosecutor Robert McCulloch, said they received the information from a “Twitter user” Wednesday morning.

“We are looking into the matter,” he said.

An account of possible jury misconduct surfaced Wednesday morning on Twitter, when several users sent messages about one juror who may have discussed evidence in the case with a friend.

In one of those messages, a person tweeted that they are friends with a member of the jury who doesn’t believe there is enough evidence to warrant an arrest of the officer, Darren Wilson.

The same person who tweeted about being friends with a member of the jury has also tweeted messages of support for Wilson.

Magee confirmed that information on the Twitter user and feed came from an activist, Shaun King.

The jury has been weighing evidence on the case since Aug. 20, within days of the Aug. 9 shooting. McCulloch told The Washington Post last week that both the FBI and county police’s investigations into the shooting are “pretty much done.” He also said that jurors should be done hearing all the evidence by later this month, but they could meet through mid-November.

Grand jury proceedings are confidential and if there has been a breach, the prosecutor’s office may have to start over with a newly empaneled group.

Meanwhile, Ferguson is grappling with continuing protests amid the wait over whether Wilson will face charges.

East Mississippi prison called 'barbaric'

From [HERE] East Mississippi Correctional Facility, which houses many suffering from mental illness, is a "barbaric" private prison where inmates are beaten, exploited and mistreated by gangs and others, according to litigation filed Thursday.

"The prison is in chaos, with conditions so dangerous — violence, filth, callous denial of prisoners' serious medical and mental health needs — that the only meaningful remedy is an injunction to protect all prisoners," said Margaret Winter, associate director of the ACLU's National Prison Project.

Officials at the Utah-based Management & Training Corp. said they've made significant improvements since they took over the Meridian prison in July 2012.

"MTC is very concerned about the well-being of the inmates in our care as well as our staff and the community," said Issa Arnita, director of corporate communications. "We have worked hard to identify areas of improvement and we will continue to do so moving forward."

On Thursday, the ACLU and Southern Poverty Law Center asked the federal court to certify the class of prisoners for the private prison.

If a federal judge steps in, the lawsuit would follow in the steps of class-action litigation brought against the Walnut Grove Correctional Facility and the State Penitentiary's Death Row and Unit 32.

Death penalty notice filed in beheading case [Since 1977, the overwhelming majority of death row defendants (77%) have been executed for killing white victims, even though Blacks make up about half of all homicide victims]

From [HERE] and [MORE]  An Oklahoma prosecutor has filed formal notification that he'll seek the death penalty against a Black man accused of beheading a white woman at a food processing plant.

Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn filed notice Thursday that he'll ask 30-year-old Alton Alexander Nolen to be executed if convicted of first-degree murder in last week's beheading of Colleen Hufford in Moore. Authorities allege Nolen attacked Hufford and another worker at Vaughan Foods after Nolen was suspended from his job at the plant.

The paperwork filed Thursday says the death penalty is warranted in the case because the killing was "especially heinous, atrocious or cruel." [MORE]
