A team of researchers at the University of Maryland recently published a paper comparing where in the country people do Google searches for the n-word and the mortality of black people in those same areas.What they found was a high correlation, which shouldn’t be surprising as it has been found before. So what does this actually mean? The study authors were careful to clarify that they could not conclude that an ar... Source: balloon-juice.com

    Baltimore Bloods And Crips Unite To Take Out Police. Seriously? MP3

    The Case of Lennon Lacy: Another Botched Police Investigation MP3

    It seems the FBI is pretty busy these days looking into cases of shoddy police work around the country.

    How the GOP Celebrates MLK MP3

    Yesterday was Martin Luther King Day. To celebrate, actions and protests were planned all over the country. Hell, MTV even broadcast in black and white in an attempt to start a dialogue on race. Not to be forgotten, the GOP sent out this delightful photo of Reince Priebus, chairman of the GOP, standing in front of the King memorial.
