#SarahReed: A Black Woman Victim of Vicious Police Assault Found Dead in Her Cell.

“My sources tell me that Sarah had been a victim of an attempted rape in Maudsley and that when she fought off her attacker, injuring him, the staff called the police. It was Sarah who ended up being arrested.

The fact that Sarah had previously challenged racist and violent Metropolitan Police Officer who was later sacked  leads the family to suspect that she was targeted for arrest under any pretence, as an act of retribution.”

“Donald Trump is the new face of white supremacy,” says hate crime expert.

August 24, 2015
Before you think this article is “just one liberal’s opinion,” let me briefly say I have dedicated my life to studying racism. I earned my PhD from Emory University in 1995 after spending several years doing ethnographic field studies of white supremacist groups. I have published books and articles in peer-reviewed journals on the subject and have appeared on more TV shows than I can remember discussing how hate works. In my 20 years at Portland State University, I interviewed scores of committed racists, from teenage skinheads to racist murderers and founders of Nazi prison gangs. So when I say that presidential candidate Donald Trump is a racist hate-monger it’s not just a political pejorative. He has a constitutional right to hold and express racist views, but using those views to manipulate the intellectually vulnerable and mobilize active bigots requires a coherent response. As an expert on hate, I am more than comfortable stating that either Trump is a virulent racist or that he is willing to perform racism and use racism of others to advance his political position.

The Problem We All Live With [racism] | This American Life

People are even racist against children. America’s racist attitude is deep. Racism is a serious problem. What are we doing to fix the problem of racism?


Why doesn’t This American Life say ‘get poor kids performing as well as Asian kids’?


Notice that This American Life reinforces the doctrine of White Supremacy with their choice of words, even while reporting a story about exposing racism.


Many reporters say that Black and Latino kids should perform in school as White kids. Reporters make the issue sound racial rather than economic.


Reporters also erase the story of high performing Asian students and never say that low performing White students should perform as well as high performing Asian students.


PS – We sometimes hear main stream media blame parents of Black and Latino kids for anything their child does wrong. Yet we do not hear the police being blamed for killing the parent(s).


Also, when a White shooter goes on a rampage, are the White parents blamed by main stream media?
