Blacks elitists abetting racist’s plans(Black overseers)

When I see George Flaggs’, Vicksburg, Ms.’s African-American mayor’s advocacy for photo ID,1 I think of Fannie Lou Hammer response to Lyndon Johnson’s proposed compromise on democratic participation: “we didn’t come this far for no two seats.”2 When I hear prominent local African-American officials in Mississippi’s capital city call the law “painless,”3 I think did we “come this far for two seats,” even as the spiritual descendants of the Dixicrats fight to prevent Medicaid expansion, successfully imposing disparate impact.  When I see the initiative that led to photo ID in Mississippi and realize that the people who signed the petition didn’t show photo ID when signing the petition, I think did we come this far for “two seats?”  When I see prominent members of the African-American community fighting to save an incumbent Republican U.S. senator4 who cast his lot with anti-ACA stalwarts, I think maybe we have come this far for “two seats.”  Race is a proxy for class. True class warfare is exposed when “less than 10% of voting age whites in Mississippi do not have a driver’s license (“the most common form of government-issued ID required to vote) while almost 30% of voting age blacks are without one.”

So when you see the following, remember the blacks in this commercial are working for someone who has been totally silent on voter constrictions and hasn’t done a thing to help expand Medicaid for the poorest state in the union. And whereas the actors in the commercial are getting paid and there are blacks who support voter suppression and the party that created it, other blacks are disproportionately affected by both of these exclusions. This exposes the survival-of-the-fittest mentality of black leadership even toward the people who are most likely to vote, when given a chance, for them. And whereas Senator Cochran was once dubbed the “King of Pork,” mind you even as blacks in Mississippi were still among the poorest in the nation and plants shut down and moved oversea, since President Obama has been in office Cochran has been about as useful to the state as Ted Cruz or Mike “laughingstock” Lee of Utah.

The answer: What is a Fox News report?

The Question: It says a toxicology report casts doubt on witnesses’ claims that a murdered man was running away when he was shot.

To make the story more convincing you must also report that the drug in the murdered man’s system was marijuana. We all know the crime sprees those pot smoking go on and the brawls they tend to start with armed law officers. But funnier still is how the officer still has to explain how the dead man reached into the SUV across the officer’s sitting body and the steering wheel and un-holstered his weapon before the officer shot him.
So why would you mentioned marijuana in the dead man’s system? Because in the mind of a conservative (those who suck up every feces-saturated morsel produced by Fox) drug use is vindication for the officer. And actually citing a forensic consultant who said “that there was no reliable measurement” to reach the conclusion that THC (marijuana) could have impaired the dead man’s judgment or slowed his reaction time is like saying there is no evidence that your father is an ax murdered. “Impaired judgment” dominates and floods the mind in one instance like “ax murderer” does in the other. And to fill the cesspool to overflow, they called the dead man a zombie, who after being shot twice in the chest, the upper right arm, the forehead, took the fatal shot to the top of the head indicating that the dead man was possibly “in a lunging position toward the shooter.”

I’d laugh about this but I can’t stop crying.

The Fox story in its entirety:

Autopsy, toxicology report on Michael Brown reportedly reveal marijuana, cast doubt on witness claims he was running away
Published October 22, 2014
FoxNews.com

Michael Brown, the 18-year-old black man whose fatal shooting by a white police officer in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson in August touched off weeks of racially-charged rioting, had marijuana in his system, was initially shot at close range and does not appear to have been killed while running away, according to experts who reviewed the official autopsy and toxicology report.
The documents, obtained by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and analyzed by two experts not directly involved in the case, appears to contradict witness accounts that claimed Brown was running away from Police Officer Darren Wilson, 28, when he was killed on Aug. 9. The new information comes on the heels of reports that Wilson told authorities Brown had reached inside Wilson’s police SUV and struggled for his gun, resulting in Wilson firing twice, hitting Brown once in the hand. Moments later and outside of the vehicle, Wilson fired the fatal bullets that sparked a national controversy.
The newspaper had St. Louis medical examiner Dr. Michael Graham, who is not part of the official investigation, review the autopsy report, and he determined that it “does support that there was a significant altercation at the car” including a shot that hit Brown’s right hand. Dr. Judy Melinek, a forensic pathologist in San Francisco who also reviewed the documents, concurred that the autopsy “supports the fact that this guy is reaching for the gun” and that it did not support claims Brown was shot while running away from Wilson, or with his hands up.
The toxicology test. also obtained by the newspaper and performed by a St. Louis University laboratory, revealed marijuana in Brown’s blood and urine. Alfred Staubus, a consultant in forensic toxicology at The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy, told the newspaper THC could impair judgment or slow reaction times but that there was no reliable measurement to make those conclusions.
“The detection of THC in the postmortem blood of Michael Brown really indicates his recent use of marijuana (within a few hours) and that he may or may not have been impaired at the time of his death,” Staubus said.
The shots fired outside of the vehicle hit Brown in the forehead, upper right arm and twice in the chest, Melinek said. The fatal shot to the top of Brown’s head indicates he was falling forward or in a lunging position toward the shooter, she said. The fact that a sixth shot hit his forearm and traveled from the back of the arm to the inner arm shows Brown’s palms could not have been facing Wilson, as some witnesses have said, Melinek said.
The findings could be at odds with those of a private autopsy arranged by Brown’s family, conducted by former New York City Chief Medical Examiner Michael Baden and made public Aug. 18. Baden said none of Brown’s wounds appeared to have been from shots fired at close range, noting a lack of stippling, or pattern of tiny blood spatters. However, Graham told the Post-Dispatch, “Sometimes when it’s really close, such as within an inch or so, there is no stipple, just smoke.”
A third autopsy has been ordered by federal officials as part of their investigation into whether Brown’s civil rights were violated. Results of that one have not been revealed.
The New York Times, citing government officials briefed on the federal civil rights investigation into the matter that, while the federal investigation was continuing, the evidence so far did not support civil rights charges against Wilson. The officials told the Times the forensic evidence supported Wilson’s version of events, which was that he was trying to leave his vehicle when Brown pushed him back in and sparked the struggle for the gun.
Surveillance video from a nearby store allegedly showed the 6-foot, 4-inch Brown committing a strong-arm robbery minutes before the confrontation, stealing a box of cigars from a shopkeeper who he pushed out of his way.
A grand jury has been hearing testimony in the case since Aug. 20, but has not yet returned an indictment or a no-bill against Wilson. If the police officer is not indicted, supporters of Brown have vowed to resume demonstrations that began immediately after the shooting and became violent, with looting, arrests and the imposition of a curfew. President Obama consoled Brown’s family in the immediate aftermath, and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder went to Ferguson and announced a separate federal investigation.

Being hosed by Hosemann


It’s the old smallpox-in-the-blanket routine. This apparently is a comically, disarming sales gimmick meant to cast Mississippi’s neo-confederate voting restrictions as minority-friendly. Mr. Haney, I mean Secretary Hosemann, is still trying to favorably portray an ice-to-the-Eskimos- purchase, $1.5 million and counting to stop non-existent in-person voter fraud. Mr. Haney says that Mississippians can use driver’s licenses that are 10 years old, but that’s not what the neo-confederate devils wrote into the details of the law, smuggled-in law via a Trojan-horse initiative. And how long after Obama is out office do you think it will be before Mr. Haney is demanding strict adherence to the law and the neo-confederates add more birth-certificate-type requirements to obtain the “free” photo ID? Why photo ID? Just look at the lower-voting effect of these type laws on black and young people in Kansas and Tennessee.* For the shrewd confidence man, Mr. Haney, advancing voting constrictions is money in the bank (job security). Beautiful Mr. Haney, disenfranchisement wrapped in a voter-integrity blanket.

Oh, and below is the white version of the commercial that Hosemann ran, the forerunner of the ad he ran coincidently matching Cochran’s black appeal campaign. Funny how the Secretary of State’s office ran a black version of the ad to appeal to the voting segment most negatively impacted by the voting changes, a segment which could prove to be pivotal to Cochran’s re-election, if Tea Partier’s Chris McDaniel’s supporters, Cochran’s primary opponent, staged a protest campaign in the general election. Apparently using a black woman in the ad proves that the law couldn’t possibly be harmful to minorities.
