Los Angeles Riot Mystery

Leave a comment

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

Use Social Media To Fight Racism

If you’ve been a victim of a racist moment in the 21st century and you can’t get satisfaction, use social media. Might as well since social media practically put Barack Obama into the White House.

Here’s a story that will interest you. Black man gets kicked out of bar.

Rodney King Death

2 Comments

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.

Maybe The Dingo…

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!

Gates Wide Open

Cicero

Marcus T. Cicero

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through…all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”

–Marcus Tullius Cicero

Spending Power To Black Power

Leave a comment

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.
