Black Egyptian excellence.

Why was Dreamworks one of the only ones who actually attempted to be historically accurate?

Cause Dreamworks isn’t all white people.

“I guess your grades are more important to you than your morals are,” my English teacher spits out, lecturing our class about cheating that’s been going on in the school.

My classmates and I exchange glances. Well, yeah, we all seem to be thinking together. Isn’t that what they’ve been showing us since middle school?

#also that our grades are more important #than ourselves.

and our mental and physical health.

Leon Ford, a man paralyzed when Pittsburgh Officer David Derbish “feared for his life” and shot Ford at a traffic stop, was found not guilty on Monday on two counts of aggravated assault, charges which could have landed him 20 years in prison.

The jury was deadlocked on all other charges, which included three counts of recklessly endangering another person, resisting arrest and escape.

It is unclear if the lesser charges will be refiled against this young father.

After the verdict was read, journalist Don Carpenter who was at the court house told The Free Thought Project,

The entire courthouse was lit up by Leon’s smile.”

Last week, after asking to see the dashcam footage again, a juror was excused and replaced by an alternate. No explanation was given for why the juror was excused.

Ford was pulled over on November 11, 2012, when the Pittsburgh police were looking for a “black male wearing a white tshirt”.

Ford, frightened that they thought he was someone else, attempted to drive off, which yes, was a bad decision.

The officer however, then violated procedure by jumping into Ford’s car claiming that they saw a bulge in his pants and believed it to be a weapon.  He was unarmed.

Moments later, the young man was shot five times by the officer in his passenger seat.

In the Change.org Petition written by Ford’s mother, Latonya Green, states:

“Police dash-cam video of the incident would later reveal that our 19-year-old teenager was detained by three police officers on a dark road for almost twenty-five minutes during what was supposed to be a routine traffic stop. My son properly provided officers with his driver licenses, vehicle registration and proof of insurance while they harassed him over the legitimacy of his identity. Even more painful to watch is the heartbreaking sounds of our youngest child being shot five times by a police officer who decided to jump inside my son’s vehicle. While we are not sure how the car shifted into gear once the officer jumped inside the vehicle, we are sure that our son was in mortal fear for his life as police harassed, threatened and hurled racial slurs towards him.:”

Ford now has no control over his body from the waist down.  He cannot control his bodily functions, walk, or engage in sexual activity.

"Zeke just got home from the vet — being allergic to certain grasses, he broke out in hives and they gave him steroid and benadryl shots. This is Winston, loving and taking care of him"

A cats purr vibrates at a frequency that promotes bone health and aids in healing. So the kitty is probably trying to purr him better.

Gone In 41 Seconds — Police Quick to Kill Korean Artist

Feb 24, 2008

LA HABRA, Calif. — On the afternoon of December 31, 2007, two police officers encountered Michael Cho in the parking lot of a liquor store in La Habra, a small, generally quiet city in Orange County, California. It didn’t take long for the meeting to go bad. After less than a minute the officers unleashed a barrage of bullets on the 25-year-old artist, ending his life - and setting off an ongoing cascade of protests across Southern California’s Korean American community.

Computerized police logs obtained by New America Media suggest the officers quickly turned to deadly force when they confronted Cho, whom they suspected of vandalism. According to the Computer Automated Transcript documenting the incident, at 2:04 p.m. the cops contacted their dispatcher to say they’d located Cho. “Out with the subject near the liquor store,” the transcript reads. Just 41 seconds later they radioed dispatch again, this time saying they’d shot the suspect and now needed paramedics to attend to him. “Shot fired, Suspect down, Medics requested,” reads the transcript. In the aftermath of the killing, Cho’s family has publicly condemned the department, saying the officers rushed to shoot Cho, rather than using less lethal tools like pepper spray or Taser stun guns to subdue him.

“The police killed my son like a dog,” Cho’s mother, Honglan Cho, recently told the La Habra City Council. According to Shelly Lynn Kaufman, an attorney for the Cho family, the fusillade of bullets left ten holes in his body.
