According to the National Crime Victimization Survey, in 2010, 62,593 blacks were the victims of white violence. During that same year, 320,082 whites were the victims of black violence. That’s five times as many violent attacks, but that number is misleading, since the black and white populations are not the same size. When 38 million black Americans commit five times as many violent crimes on 197 million whites as they receive, what you discover is that black perpetrators violently assault White victims TWENTY-FIVE times more frequently. When it comes to a specific kind of violent crime — aggravated assault — the number of black on white crimes is TWO HUNDRED TIMES HIGHER than white on black crimes. Oh, there’s an epidemic of racial violence in America, all right.

And no one wants to talk about this. It sounds too racist.

U.S. Martin Luther King Jr being attacked as he marched nonviolently for the Chicago Freedom Movement, 1966, which was the most ambitious civil rights campaign in the North of the United States, and lasted from mid-1965 to early 1967.

If only he’d been well-spoken, pulled his pants up and didn’t wear a hoodie… oop… wait…

Please really look at this. Look at how many men are on him. Look at how you can see he is not attacking anyone. Look at how he is dressed. Imagine the fear he has that this moment may have been his last. Remember that he was assassinated by forces within the U.S. gov’t because of his mission. Before you pull that string on that MLK Jr. watered-down quote teddy, look at this, look at what’s happening today, and really fucking think.

"Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is protected by supporters after being hit with a stone during a housing march in what was then the all-white Marquette Park neighborhood on Chicago’s Southwest Side. King marched to protest housing segregation and inadequate housing for minorities. "I have seen many demonstrations in the South, but I have never seen anything so hostile and so hateful as I’ve seen here (in Marquette Park) today," King said. — Chicago Tribune historical photo, Aug. 5, 1966"

HEY LOOK, MORE IDIOTS TAKING PHOTOS OUT OF CONTEXT!

These men were PROTECTING Rev. King, not attacking him.

Someone outside the pic was the scumbag attacking him, jesus fucking asscrackers, tumblr. 

OP is a fuckwit.

Things like this have me worried for our country’s future. How can we go forward honestly and with honor if we do not know history and do not present it in an honest light?

It seems too many people are more worried about short-term political gains by inciting social tensions than worried about being honest and learning the valuable lessons our forefathers already paid for in blood for us.

Mitt Romney: Obama is even worse that I expected

poorrichardsnews:

I’m sure this sentiment is true for a lot of people.  However, I don’t think it says much about Obama but more about Mitt Romney and those who simply were not paying attention in 2008 before Obama got elected.  All you had to do was look at Obama’s own words.  We warned from the beginning that his Presidency would be a disaster.

The former Massachusetts governor has some pointed words for the man who defeated him two years ago, saying President Obama was doing “a good deal worse than even I expected.” He cited the U.S. economy and troubles abroad in such hot spots as Iraq, Syria and Russia.

“I was not a big fan of the president’s policies, as you know, either domestically or internationally,” he said, “but the results of his mistakes and errors, in my opinion, have been more severe than even I would have predicted.”

Voters say solve illegal border surge by sending kids home, poll shows

gop-tea-pub:

An overwhelming percentage of voters say it’s better to send illegal immigrant children surging across the border back home, rather than trying to houseimage them in the U.S., said a new Republican poll released Tuesday.

And voters also take a dim view of having President Obama act on his own to try to fix immigration policyimage, with nearly three-quarters saying he should instead find ways to work with Congress, according to the survey by the Polling Company Inc.

“The children-at-the-border-crisis has brought into sharp relief public opinion about immigration. Out of sight, out of mind is over,” Kellyanne Conway, the pollster, said in a memo outlining the key findings.

Polling on immigration is notoriously tricky, and Americans often say they support policies that are in conflict with one another when it comes to federal law. This latest survey, though, suggests that the surge of children coming across the border has affected the way Americans view the situation.


The poll found that a majority of voters peg immigration as either the top issue, or among the top three, that they want to hear about ahead of November’s elections.

Those that do place it that high are far more likely to take a strict stance on it, favoring sending illegal immigrants home and even calling for a reduction in legal immigration. Those who rateimage immigration as a lower priority issue are more likely to support boosting legal immigration, and less likely to care if illegal immigrants are sent home.

The survey of 1,001 likely voters, taken in mid-July, just as the surge of illegal immigrant children was peaking in the news, found that 65 percent said they should be sent home in order to send a signal to others considering coming. Only 22 percent said they should be housed in the U.S. to keep them safe from dangers at home.

And asked whether they supported Mr. Obama acting alone to grant tentative legal status to millions of illegal immigrants — an action the White House is considering — opposition was overwhelming: 74 percent said he should instead work with Congress, while just 21 percent said he should go it alone.
