Why Black Children Aren’t Seen As America’s Treasure MP3

In case recent stories like that of the killing of 12-year-old Tamir Rice by Cleveland police don’t make it clear, this country doesn’t exactly view black children as America’s Treasure. In fact, of the 2,500 kids serving life without parole for crimes committed under the age of 18 in this country, 60 percent of them are black.  But while black children are at a disadvantage from the beginning, there are whi...

    The Sad Case of Walter Scott MP3

    In what feels like a never-ending list of dead unarmed black men, at least one cop will possibly be brought to justice in the case of Walter Scott. The South Carolina man, who was shot eight times in back, was fleeing from police officer Michael Slager. While the officer alleged that Scott grabbed the officer’s Taser, bystander video shows a very different story. The officer is being charged with murder. “When yo...

    Obama Loves Terrorists More Than Patriots MP3

    On Friday the IRS issued an apology after admitting the agency unfairly targeted conservative agencies in 2011.

    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. The latest case is the possible lynching of North Carolina black teen Lennon Lacy which has only gotten press because the NAACP has spoken out. Lacy was found hanging from a swing set in a mostly white trailer park: Lennon was 5-foot-9. The crossbar of the swing set frame he was found hanging from was 7-foot-6, acc...

    The Officer, The Broken Eggs, And An Act of Humanity MP3

    With all the negative stories surrounding the police these days, it’s nice to see something positive. Alabama police officer William Stacy got called to a Dollar General for a shoplifting charge. Instead of finding someone stealing makeup or jewelry, Helen Johnson was caught stealing eggs. She had placed a few in her pockets and they cracked as she began to leave. Instead of charging Johnson, Stacy bought her the e...
