    The issues and problems remain the same:

    Who does intend to kiss up or stand up, and who else will emulate or mimic either example?

    The real challenge: Those who claim to reflect Kings or Malcolms viewpoints who are able and willing to unite behind a common intent and purpose...

    In all cases, those who we claim to be our own, or those we don't, truly be about equality etc. in our lifetimes....

    I. e., no bunch of entrenched folk with--even with power and wealth-- can or will win, if me and mine/you and yours, don't continue to buy what they're selling....

    The true extremists aren't just among the Aryan Nations and/or KKK nutcases etc...

    Whenever the defenders of the white status quo face up to their present day b. s., and the mostly passive white folk in general do likewise, absurd and bizarre bad judgement calls would be replaced with balanced and fair apllication of the laws etc.

    I TOLD YOU SO:

    Missouri leaders sought Ferguson resignation

    By JIM SALTER and DAVID A. LIEB


    [​IMG] © AP Photo/St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Robert Cohen, File File-This Aug. 15, 2014, file photo shows Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson surrounded by his officers as he answers questions at a news conference in Forestwood Park. Interviews with several…
    ST. LOUIS — Some of Missouri's top leaders tried unsuccessfully to pressure Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson to resign after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, interviews with several elected officials and records released Friday show.
    Ferguson Mayor James Knowles III told The Associated Press that top state officials had several meetings where they applied pressure on the city to force Jackson to resign. Missouri House Speaker John Diehl and U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill confirmed they both attended a fall meeting to discuss whether Jackson should be forced out.
    Also, records provided to AP under an open records request include a Nov. 10 email from St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar to an assistant that describes an apparent meeting of state and local officials. It references the potential timing of Jackson's "separation" and identifies a potential successor.
    Brown, 18 and unarmed, was shot by officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9. The shooting of a black suspect by a white officer led to significant unrest in St. Louis County, unrest that escalated Nov. 24 after the announcement that a grand jury declined to indict Wilson, who later resigned.
    Knowles refused to name any of the officials who urged Jackson's removal.
    "I was at a lot of meetings where that was brought up," Knowles said. "There were different people advocating for the chief to be fired or quit or whatever. I want to make it clear: We never considered that."
    A message left with Jackson was not returned.
    McCaskill confirmed in a written statement that she attended such a meeting — one of many involving community leaders, elected officials and members of law enforcement, the statement said.
    "And a variety of issues were discussed to help ease tension in the St. Louis region, and address systemic issues highlighted in Ferguson-issues including personnel changes at the Ferguson police department," the statement said.
    St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay and his chief of staff, Jeff Rainford, attended several meetings about Jackson's future "and many other things that were about the best way to move forward," Rainford said.
    Missouri House Speaker John Diehl said he participated in two meetings — one in Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster's office in St. Louis — in which officials discussed efforts to try to get both Jackson and Wilson to resign. Diehl said the meetings occurred around the time of the Nov. 4 elections and he disagreed with the attempts to seek their resignations, because the grand jury process was ongoing.
    "A substantial part of the conversation centered around trying to get Darren Wilson to resign prior to the decision of the grand jury and to get Chief Jackson to resign, and I didn't have any interest in participating in that," Diehl, a Republican from the St. Louis suburb of Town and Country, said.
    Diehl said Jackson's resignation would have left "a leadership vacuum" on the police force and "I didn't think it was proper for someone in my position to get involved in. It's a personal decision between the city of Ferguson and Chief Jackson."
    The email from Belmar has the subject line, "Ferguson Chief Jackson Meeting," and the text of the email is written in note form. At one point it indicates that a St. Louis County police lieutenant colonel named Doyle "will become the ranking officer of the FPD." Doyle's first name isn't given, but Troy Doyle is a lieutenant colonel for the county.
    The email lists several names of apparent attendees: McCaskill, Koster, Slay, Rainford, Diehl, Doyle, then-St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley and U.S. Rep. William Lacy Clay.
    Spokespeople for Clay and Koster declined immediate comment, and messages seeking comment from Dooley and St. Louis County police were not returned.
    The email also made reference to a request to Gov. Jay Nixon to place the National Guard in front of Ferguson police headquarters on the date of the grand jury announcement. "Apparently the guard will not move to the FPD per the governor," the email said.
    Knowles and others were critical of the decision not to have the Guard in place in Ferguson at the time of the announcement, after a dozen area businesses were destroyed in fires during protests.


    The mayor and prosecutor are next.

    DIDNT SEE THIS:

    They didn't always control the media, political parties or the banks. In fact, there are less of them here than us. it worked because they leveraged their wealth. Something we need to do en masse. When the crash hit, we had the wealth to buy up a few large banks. Did we? No. They did during the depression. No more excuses.
