    So anybody shocked that within a day of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund presenting a formal petition for an investigation into STL Prosecutor Bob McCullough that an NAACP building had a terror attack against it? Coincidence much? Despite what most media called it today, that's what detonating a bomb at a public building is called. Terrorism. The 40ish year old white male terrorist is still loose but have you heard the mainstream media talking about it? They usually flock to these stories. Had his name simply been Jamal or Mohammed it would be a different story.

    I think this young generation of activists are on it. We're making some noise. There is a new energy. Direct actions. Lots of organization happening. I'm hopeful some more change will come.

    Bomb explodes outside NAACP building in Colorado Springs


    DENVER (Reuters) - A homemade bomb exploded outside the offices of the Colorado Springs chapter of the NAACP civil rights group on Tuesday, authorities said, but a gasoline can placed next to the device failed to detonate and no injuries were reported.

    An "improvised explosive device" was set off against an exterior wall of the NAACP building, the FBI's Denver field office said in a statement.

    DENVER (AP) -- The FBI is investigating the possibility that a homemade explosive set off near a Colorado NAACP office was a case of domestic terrorism.

    Investigators also are considering many other possible motives and have not determined whether the nation's oldest civil rights organization was targeted, Denver FBI spokeswoman Amy Sanders said Wednesday.

    The FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms also offered a $10,000 reward for information on Tuesday's explosion, which caused only minor damage and no injuries but rattled nerves due to its proximity to the nation's oldest civil rights organization. Federal officials say they do not know whether the NAACP was targeted but are investigating the explosion as a possible hate crime.

    Remember me saying that all that burning, destruction, and chanting for cop killings would bring the nut cases out of the hills?!

    The nation is tired of demonstrations, closing bridges making everyone late to their jobs, picking their kids up from school etc. The point has clearly been made and anything further is an aggravation to people. It will have a reverse effect at this point. Plus anything destructive will create a public relations view in the negative and suddenly the cause will be viewed as a case of people without good sense looking for a mob party.

    You want to keep up energy? Write! But not about four hundred years ago. Write about today. Make sure you have your facts right, or loss of credibility will occur. What was your personal experience. Why do you feel like you do? Put it in a book with a collection of other people and publish it as an e-book. This is what is popular now because everyone has Kindles. Take time with it. Don't make it flying with hate, because most white people are just going to jobs, raising a family, and taking time out for a movie.

    These are the things that have changed the view of white people: The peaceful but powerful demonstrations with Dr. M. L. King. TV and movies that come into the homes of America. One example, The Cosby Show. This particular series showed family life, as educated, loving, and that all families have issues with kids and everyday concerns. In other words, a commonality with the everyday other people, a platform for appreciation and trust.

    Put together poetry, short stories, or an autobiography. Now that is the way to move into the hearts of a nation for a change.

    What is it you want to change? The system? To change the system you have to be part of the system.

    Once again make sure what you say is factual. Do your own research.

    One other point for warning, especially to students, watch out for Communistic rhetoric, they look at races of color as the new proletariat army and they manipulate you emotionally. They are deceitful. Anybody that takes away individual agency for thought and prosperity is the enemy.

    http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/...o-editing-protesters-chants-to-say-Kill-a-cop

    A Baltimore Fox station had to apologize to Black Lives Matter protester, Tawanda Jones, after they were busted for deceptively editing a protest chant to say "Kill a cop."
    The chant went "we won't stop, we can't stop, 'til killer cops, are in cell blocks," according to C-SPAN footage.
    But WBFF cut the audio short and told viewers that the words were in fact "we won't stop, we can't stop, so kill a cop."
