You can't make this up.

Yes, these NYU students are that dumb:

Our statement regarding the murders of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile—and the rampant murders of Black Americans by the police—was not a suggestion that their deaths are part of an Israeli conspiracy. Israel did not literally kill either of these men: that much is obvious. What is also clear is that American police departments and the IDF train together. The IDF assists the NYPD and other American police departments in their oppression and murder of black people. These groups share a common logic that manifests in several types of oppression, white supremacist racism among them.

If we in SJP and in the Palestine solidarity movement more generally are serious about ending Israeli oppression then we must stand with black americans. We need to be in the streets with them and we need to organize against police brutality.

The Black struggle and the Palestinian struggle are not the same. Still, Palestinian liberation and Black liberation are linked. That is why Palestinians must be there for Black people, and Black People must be there for Palestinains. This sense of mutual responsibility has been present in our movements.

Those who claim our statement promoted conspiracy theories, or was a cooptation of BLM, are intentionally misconstruing it. This is not cooptation, or using the murders of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile to push for an opportunistic SJP agenda. It is solidarity.

We will not engage in further discussion on this matter, which aims to distract from the urgent issues at hand, as we believe the attention should remain on the victims of state brutality.

The Black community might do better to copy the Israelis instead of the Palestinians.

There is a very simple solution: Take all police out of all majority-black neighborhoods. It's what they want. To them, law enforcement is inherently a racist activity. So pull the cops out.

It is also inherently racist to point out an objective fact: blacks make up 12% of the national population, yet manage to commit 52% of the country's homicides. I imagine it's also racist to ask why this might be the case.

So, let them police their own neighborhoods. No one will be arrested or tazed or shot. There will finally be both justice AND peace. Everyone wins. Right?

Well, I didn't know that Israelis were training our police departments and frankly didn't believe it.
I confirmed that it's true in Israel's newspapers online.
The question becomes how much is counter-terrorism tactics and how much is occupation tactics?
IF one is part of a group that supports Palestine, which this group clearly does, their position is hardly surprising.
We live in a time, since no group is without mistakes or faults, it's pretty easy to demonize every group that exists. It's made easier still when those in a group rationalize and defend the bad behaviors of their own!

9:36 am What makes you seem racist is ignoring that 45.3% of all murders are committed by whites and the remainder by " others" who aren't African American. Then look at how many whites are murderered compared to the remainder. Now compare poverty levels, education levels and to percentage of blacks who kill whites of those who murder. Given that even the FBI acknowledges that poverty is the number one predictor of crime, it's rather remarkable African Americans don't have even a higher representation in prisons! You fall for lies of omission and convenient statistics. Didn't take a stat course, did you?

Poverty is not a reason to murder another person. It has been used many times by people who just simply do not have any other excuse.
Look at all of the other races who have come to America. The poverty level of blacks was not any worse than the others. The only difference is other races lifted themselves out of poverty. Blacks haven't even made any attempt.
Please do not forget, the FBI just happens to be the organization that decided Hillary was too dumb to indict.

"45.3% of all murders are committed by whites..."

Not sure whether I should just shake my head or bemoan the fact that somebody is stupid enough to believe that, much lest POST it.

The leading manner of death among black males between 16 and 25 in this country is homicide. I wonder if this idiot believe white folks are doing all that cap-popping.

@ 1:31 - You might want to go back to the Google site where you copied that "45.3% statement from and read the REST of it. The line just BEFORE that one says "blacks accounted for 52.5% of homicide offenders" and the very next line says "The offending rate for blacks was almost 8 times higher than whites". Do you even UNDERSTAND what that MEANS??? Although Blacks represent only about 13% of the total population in the USA, they commit more than HALF of the murders!!!!!! They kill 8 TIMES more often than a white person!! That, my friend is not RACISM no matter how it may "seem" to you. It is plain, simple FACT.

True, 3:54. And remember, in order to skew the numbers AGAINST Whites, those compiling the data, categorize as 'White', all sorts of people who are NOT REALLY WHITE (including many groups prone to criminality).

I haven't really paid much attention to the recent supposed "murders by police". But among the "murdering policemen", I noticed two (there were probably more) who were not white, and who were members of groups whom Nativists have historically deemed problematic. Nativists have sought (since the early Twentieth Century) to exclude these groups from entry into the United States. America's Blacks have been victimized by these immigrant groups, far more than they have, by actual, real Whites.

Anybody find it interesting when you are on the fbi database there are asterisks by Illinois and Chicago murder rates? Seems convenient that the government; be it State or Fed can hide the numbers for these communities. Is it Rham or Barry?

"Didn't take a stats course did you?"

A 'stats course' ought to, and should, be about learning the practice or science of collecting and analyzing data in large quantities, especially for the purpose of inferring proportions in a whole from those in a representative sample.

It should not be, but often is, about how to creatively gather and present non-representative and often fabricated data, with an option to massage it, in order to defend a previously arrived at conclusion or concept.

1:31 -- You need to be apprised of a couple of things.

First there is no such thing as "Palestine." There has never been a sovereign country in the history of the world called "Palestine," and there is no recognizable ethnic people who are genetically distinct "Palestinians." They are Arabs.

The entire region was known as Judea until the final Jewish revolt in AD 70, when Herrod's Temple was destroyed. Since "Judea" sounded like "Jew," the Emperor Nero decreed that henceforth the region would be known as "Palestine," taken from the same root as "Philistine," a pagan civilization, now extinct.

Your so-called "Palestinians" have had several opportunities to have their own sovereign state. They would rather murder Jews, and blame Jews and the West for all of their problems. It's the whole "root for the underdog" mentality, and you've fallen for it like a good socialist mark.

Second, WTF does Israeli's allegedly training and consulting with US police departments have to do with anything? Nothing.

Ok. Whites may commit 43 percent of murders as you say. Doesn't explain why 12% of the population commits more than half.

Oh, yes. Poverty, racism, discrimination. Those are the culprits. Let's take that to its logical conclusion.

If you're born into poverty, and don't have a dad at home, you're robbed of free will, right? You inherently lack the ability to control yourself, and will essentially roam the streets like a wild dog, shooting and robbing and raping. Because you're poor.

That, in essence is your argument, and it's a hell of a lot more racist than my asking a question. You think black people are incapable of self control and civilized behavior. Setting kind of a low bar there, aren't you Bernie?

Went to school there in the '70's. Ironically, we used to call it "N-Y-Jew" based on all of the JAPS (Jewish-American Princes and Princesses) with money. Keep in mind these are smart kids with little walking-around knowledge. There's no use attempting to offer facts or statistics. People are going to believe what they will.

So many of you are dead on the FACTS DO NOT MATTER to the black community.
If poverty leads to murdering, robbing, committing mayhem then by shear numbers if the population there would be more whites murdering. ONCE again BEING POOR DOES NOT MAKE ANYONE A MURDERER-THIEF-USELESS HUMAN BEING!!

Here are five key statistics you need to know about cops killing blacks.

1. Cops killed nearly twice as many whites as blacks in 2015. According to datacompiled by The Washington Post, 50 percent of the victims of fatal police shootings were white, while 26 percent were black. The majority of these victims had a gun or "were armed or otherwise threatening the officer with potentially lethal force,"
Some may argue that these statistics are evidence of racist treatment toward blacks, since whites consist of 62 percent of the population and blacks make up 12 percent of the population. But as MacDonald writes in The Wall Street Journal, 2009 statistics from the Bureau of Justice Statistics reveal that blacks were charged with 62 percent of robberies, 57 percent of murders and 45 percent of assaults in the 75 biggest counties in the country, despite only comprising roughly 15 percent of the population in these counties.

"Such a concentration of criminal violence in minority communities means that officers will be disproportionately confronting armed and often resisting suspects in those communities, raising officers’ own risk of using lethal force," writes MacDonald.

MacDonald also pointed out in her Hillsdale speech that blacks "commit 75 percent of all shootings, 70 percent of all robberies, and 66 percent of all violent crime" in New York City, even though they consist of 23 percent of the city's population.

"The black violent crime rate would actually predict that more than 26 percent of police victims would be black," MacDonald said. "Officer use of force will occur where the police interact most often with violent criminals, armed suspects, and those resisting arrest, and that is in black neighborhoods."

2. More whites and Hispanics die from police homicides than blacks. According to MacDonald, 12 percent of white and Hispanic homicide deaths were due to police officers, while only four percent of black homicide deaths were the result of police officers.

"If we’re going to have a 'Lives Matter' anti-police movement, it would be more appropriately named "White and Hispanic Lives Matter,'" said MacDonald in her Hillsdale speech.

3. The Post's data does show that unarmed black men are more likely to die by the gun of a cop than an unarmed white man...but this does not tell the whole story. In August 2015, the ratio was seven-to-one of unarmed black men dying from police gunshots compared to unarmed white men; the ratio was six-to-one by the end of 2015. But MacDonald points out in The Marshall Project that looking at the details of the actual incidents that occurred paints a different picture:

The “unarmed” label is literally accurate, but it frequently fails to convey highly-charged policing situations. In a number of cases, if the victim ended up being unarmed, it was certainly not for lack of trying. At least five black victims had reportedly tried to grab the officer’s gun, or had been beating the cop with his own equipment. Some were shot from an accidental discharge triggered by their own assault on the officer. And two individuals included in the Post’s “unarmed black victims” category were struck by stray bullets aimed at someone else in justified cop shootings. If the victims were not the intended targets, then racism could have played no role in their deaths.

In one of those unintended cases, an undercover cop from the New York Police Department was conducting a gun sting in Mount Vernon, just north of New York City. One of the gun traffickers jumped into the cop’s car, stuck a pistol to his head, grabbed $2,400 and fled. The officer gave chase and opened fire after the thief again pointed his gun at him. Two of the officer’s bullets accidentally hit a 61-year-old bystander, killing him. That older man happened to be black, but his race had nothing to do with his tragic death. In the other collateral damage case, Virginia Beach, Virginia, officers approached a car parked at a convenience store that had a homicide suspect in the passenger seat. The suspect opened fire, sending a bullet through an officer’s shirt. The cops returned fire, killing their assailant as well as a woman in the driver’s seat. That woman entered the Post’s database without qualification as an “unarmed black victim” of police fire.

MacDonald examines a number of other instances, including unarmed black men in San Diego, CA and Prince George's County, MD attempting to reach for a gun in a police officer's holster. In the San Diego case, the unarmed black man actually "jumped the officer" and assaulted him, and the cop shot the man since he was "fearing for his life." MacDonald also notes that there was an instance in 2015 where "three officers were killed with their own guns, which the suspects had wrestled from them."

4. Black and Hispanic police officers are more likely to fire a gun at blacks than white officers. This is according to a Department of Justice report in 2015 about the Philadelphia Police Department, and is further confirmed that by a study conducted University of Pennsylvania criminologist Gary Ridgeway in 2015 that determined black cops were 3.3 times more likely to fire a gun than other cops at a crime scene.

5. Blacks are more likely to kill cops than be killed by cops. This is according to FBI data, which also found that 40 percent of cop killers are black. According to MacDonald, the police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black than a cop killing an unarmed black person.

Despite the facts, the anti-police rhetoric of Black Lives Matter and their leftist sympathizers have resulted in what MacDonald calls the "Ferguson Effect," as murders have spiked by 17 percent among the 50 biggest cities in the U.S. as a result of cops being more reluctant to police neighborhoods out of fear of being labeled as racists. Additionally, there have been over twice as many cops victimized by fatal shootings in the first three months of 2016.

Anti-police rhetoric has deadly consequences.

It is useless to try to explain what is really happening to blacks. Just one look at the drop out rate of black kids. Many are growing up without the ability to read. You can't show them stats as they can not read what it says, if they would even care.

Anonymous said...

First, #@!^ the media as they are fanning the flames for ratings. Second, enough black males have foolishly abandoned their families leaving a single mom to work and raise kids. Politicians, lobbying groups, the DC and State mentality will not change. Hoping for that is a waste of time and so is watching TV and getting riled up about our grievance society. If the black community wants to change it will have to do so on its own just like every other culture in the world and they'll have to do it peacefully and gracefully. How about we say the police have a tolerance level for criminal activity in each area of a municipality. If crime exceeds a certain percentage then let that community figure it out themselves instead of blaming the cops. In fact, let Kenny police that section and see how fast things change. Stokes will ask if he can wash police cars from outside of Jackson just to get the cops back. It's kind of like intervention...let them hit rock bottom and know that once they do there is no alternative than to straighten up and fly right.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required.
