Watch: Two Alabama Police Lieutenants Investigated For Ties To Racist Hate Group

Sickening, and this is exactly what I mean by #Dismantle the South
This is clearly a conflict of interest and still I just feel bad for the Black people that have to live under these cops jurisdiction…including SC mayor, Gov, and Lindsey Graham who refuses to this day to ban the Confederate Flag in the wake of the Charleston Masssacre and Walter Scott case….This is going to be a long fight but the New young Black millennial sole task must be to dismantle this ugly network of racist politicians and to usher in a better more equal day….If only the youth of today, could put down the Xbox, sports, and rap music enough to understand they have a role to play in the movement for change in America…

She cited a protest on May 1, where people participating in a rally for Black men killed by police brutality allegedly damaged businesses along Oakland’s auto mall, as a motivator for this change.

In accordance with the new policy, cops apprehended dozens of people on Saturday after coming up against around 100 protesters that refused to be pushed aside. The group…

The One Thing African Americans Need To Know About Memorial Day

Yes! Along with an exciting new Civil War Memorial found in Camden Co.NJ is one of the highlights of this day! So Happy, now if we could just pry the youths attention from Rihanna’ s latest weave or Young Thug self-destructive lyrics, to care
Good luck, Social Justice Warriors the real BP have long written them off and I doubt with a Maj. Republican delegation, we will get to really change how America operates in relation of dealing with Black issues
But I am so happy that we have a younger generation of BW who don’t mind trying
Thank God for @BrownBlaze and the girls of #BlacklivesMatter

Some of you are probably thinking, “Just joined Twitter? He’s been on the social media site for years—it maybe even helped him win an election.” And you’d be correct—the President’s checkmarked profile, currently with 59.4 million followers, has been active since 2007.

But on Monday, the handle @POTUS (President of the United States) debuted, featuring tweets exclusively from the president. According to Forbes, it was amassing about 3,314 followers per minute in the time between his first tweet around noon and racking up his millionth follower around 4:15 p.m.
