Law Enforcement, Society, Violence
The May 10, 1992, edition of the New York Times, (if you can find it), reported that out of 18,230 people arrested during the L.A. riots, both the police and the city prosecutors could not account for 10,000 people.
And here we are now, 20 year anniversary of the Rodney King beating; Mr. King just drowns in his own swimming pool? I hope I’m not the only one who notices these clues. A clue to what I haven’t figured out yet.
Here is another article of interest : NYT : After the riots

Rodney King was beaten to an inch of his life 20 years ago in Los Angeles. And yet he survived all this time just to drown in his swimming pool! This man was to start a tour to promote his new book. To me there is something suspicious about this man’s death. Mr. King was 47 years old. His book is titled: “The Riot Within: My Journey From Rebellion to Redemption”
He spoke about his experience on the L.A. riots on a Korean TV show, Real Talk, on the 19th year anniversary.

Remember the line Elaine, of Seinfeld fame, said, “Maybe the dingo ate your baby.”
Well, an Australian coroner discovered that a dingo was responsible for killing infant Azaria Chamberlain.
That creepy bit of comedy isn’t so funny now!

Black Americans, Business, Capitalism, Economics
According to the African-American Consumer Report, by 2015 Black Americans will represent $1 Trillion in spending power. Does this lead Black Power? I mean what are we getting for our money? Power? Protection?
I don’t think this is something to get excited about! 😦

If you don’t know me, zobop, by now you should know I’m so into this Korean girl group F(x). 🙂

I like the song and all but I think this group should change its name to something else. The letters of the group name correspond to the first initials of each members name.
Chemi, Re Dee, Effie, AnneJ and Lenny.
