New Video- Mexican Family Brutally Attacked By Openly Racist White Male- Updated

UPDATED POST:

After making this video there have been additional details released so to confirm my fear stated in the video of white privilege. While the openly racist Alan Covington, 50 and white, will be charged with multiple charges, including aggravated assault resulting in serious bodily injury, he will not be charged for committing a hate crime. How is that possible?!

All I can say is watch the video and as I say in it, he is white so of course he is being referred to as a person whom struggles with drugs and has some mental issues… BUT IF THIS HAD BEEN A MALE OF ANY OTHER RACE OR COLOR, ESPECIALLY BLACK, HE WOULD BE A THUG, A DRUG ABUSER. EVERY DRUG HE HAD EVER TAKEN WOULD BE LISTED BESIDE HIS PICTURE WHETHER OR NOT HE WAS STILL TAKING SAID DRUG, ALL IN AN ATTEMPT TO SHUN HIM. 

But Alan’s white, so he is but a victim of life. A victim of addiction, but not a bad guy, he is just down on his luck… That’s how local media attempt to portray him, as it usually goes. I talk about that in the video though so for now back to the hate crime that won’t be tried as a hate crime.

After hearing what this racist did, brutally attacking a Mexican family at their family owned business with racist, hate filled words and threats of murder to acting out upon those words with attacks on multiple members of the Lopez family. His most vicious attack was on Jose’s son, Luis Lopez, 18 year old, as seen in the photo and as described..

As stated in a document used to indict Alan, when police arrived they found Luis “bleeding profusely from his face”, “gurgling and coughing on his own blood”- Luis had been beaten in the face with a metal rod and fell unconscious.

Please consider either donating to help the Lopez family pay for the surgeries needed due to what Alan did, or at least sharing this story and the funding page please…

So once more… While Alan will be charged with various criminal acts, one being aggravated assault resulting in serious bodily injury, the one thing thing we won’t see under his “charge information” is this being listed as a hate crime. (You can view the charges he is facing, among other information related to his arrest for this hate crime, by clicking here.)

Why won’t they charge the male who bluntly stated he would be back and when he came back again, he would kill. He would kill because he wants to kill Mexicans as he himself put it. But this is not a hate crime? Of course it is.

But in Utah state law in order to charge and convict someone for a hate crime it can’t be anything more severe than a misdemeanor assault…. So the fact that Alan is facing more extreme charges disqualifies him from any thing related to hate crimes… [Read Utah’s outrageous, insulting, careless legal definition and the (extremely limited) requirements for yourself by clicking here.]

As with any and every hate crime from police brutality to domestic terrorists all the way to the legal system of both state and federal law, I am even more pissed off than before…  I don’t understand how or why we as a people are not uniting to change America into a decent place, why do so many people not care?? Blah.. Will update as this case proceeds.

To help with medical expenses, please help by donating or sharing to the Lopez family; their gofundme page located here.

They Run on Lies, Stereotypes & Racism For No Truth Do They Speak

If anyone doubted racism in the system, this alone would awaken them; granted they wanted to be woke and were ready to face truth. There is no surprise these psycho’s would get this low; especially when their leader is a white extremist calling himself “president.”

Using the tactic of fear through religion, hate, ignorance as well as the legal lies the mainstream media makes available, they further isolate people when it is uniting that we should be doing. Of course they don’t want there to be peace; what do they have to profit from that?

Not to mention this “has been” a functioning operation and a reality in the not so distant past. To be more specific we know during the Cold War era the CIA controlled the media, forcing everything from false stories and reports be given to the American people all the way to subconscious ‘mind control’ via subliminal messages and images through the media, this also includes more blatant messages through television and other forms of media. There is no way the government truly is keeping other agencies under control; especially when you have a psychopath as a so called president.

Not to mention, it has even become legal for the media to lie, and it actually is but more on that next time, we still have the same hate rhetoric being taken in as fact by either the hate filled  or gullible people…or maybe they simply don’t care because it isn’t happening ‘to them’… SMH.

And here we are today. No changes except things have gotten a lot worse because too many are still asleep or unaware of the truth that rests before them if only they were to seek it.

As for this operation, during the Cold War unspeakable things happened to far too many people of most backgrounds… With who is sitting in the white house currently I do not believe the order to end Operation Mockingbird (decided at the 1977 hearings) has been or is honored today. Perhaps it gained a new name…sadly that’d really be all they would need to do, especially given most people say and do nothing.

Below is a piece of the story, followed by the link to the full. This needs to be news everyone is aware of so please share…

In one automated phone call heard by two media organizations, a man pretends to be Gillum speaking in stereotypical Black dialect while jungle music plays during the call.

“Well, hello there,” the call begins as the sounds of drums and monkeys can be heard in the background. “I is Andrew Gillum.”

“We Negroes . . . done made mud huts while white folk waste a bunch of time making their home out of wood an’ stone.”

The man promises to pass a law that will allow African-Americans to avoid arrest “if the Negro know fo’ sho’ he didn’t do nothin’.”

These automated calls are designed to promote fear among white voters in Florida and encourage them to support Gillum’s opponent, U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, a Republican who has been endorsed by President Donald Trumpand who supports Trump’s political ideology.

The recording ends with a man saying that the robocalls were paid for by the Road to Power, an Idaho-based website and podcast that promotes white supremacist and anti-Semitic content.

The robocalls are a clear indication of how racially incendiary the Florida governor’s race has become heading into the November mid-term elections. The campaign also underscores how Trump’s ongoing racial rhetoric has encouraged white supremacist groups to become more aggressive with promoting racist fear tactics like the robocalls.

DeSantis’ campaign spokesman, Stephen Lawson, called the robocalls “absolutely appalling and disgusting…and hopefully whoever is behind this has to answer for this despicable action.”

We Need to Realize the Dreams of Young Black Immigrants…

daca

****

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” – Emma Lazarus

 

They are Black! They Are Beautiful! And, they too have a dream!

The current tension over protecting the dreamers is merely an extension of an historical conflict between those in America who support the sentiments espoused on the base of the Statue of Liberty and those who want a country that fulfills the most egregious desire of White Supremacists, to purge the country of non-white residents on their road to fulfilling their vision of an all-White America.

Last week, the nation bore witness when the president dispelled all doubt about the racist ideology that undergirds the agenda of his white house. Trump allegedly demanded to know during a White House meeting on immigration, why he should accept immigrants from “shithole” (Black) countries like Haiti or Africa–I’m not sure if the president realizes Africa is not a country but a continent—rather than White countries like Norway.

This was not the first time the president put his full racist attitude on display. The country saw it throughout the 2016 presidential campaign and again and again since he took office.

The president’s apparent attitude toward people of color is not only telling but also threatening to the hundreds of thousands of dreamers at risk of deportation since he ended DACA last September. Although the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals blocked Trump’s efforts to stymie the DACA program last week, the ultimate fate of the dreamers remains uncertain.

Amid the discussions on the probable racist ideology permeating the white house and the president’s implementation of obvious racist immigration policies that have resulted to date, there are nearly 3.7 million Black immigrants who account for about 8.4 percent of all immigrants—many of them from the very countries the president recently disparaged.

According to a report by the Center for American Progress, among the largest groups of Black immigrants, 48 percent are from the Caribbean, 43 percent from various African countries, and 3.6 percent from South America. Black immigrants also make up 25 percent of at least five major metropolitan areas including Boston, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, and Seattle.

The president has also inferred that immigrants from countries like Norway are preferable. He never qualified that statement. However, if his preference is based on qualifications rather than race, we must assume he is unaware of the fact that Black immigrants have as high a rate of education and employment as any other group of immigrants.

For example, 29 percent of Black immigrants have a bachelor’s degree or higher compared to 30 percent from White nations, and at least 29 percent have some college or an associates degree compared to only 19 percent from other countries.

Another area where the president is ill informed is in regard to employment. The reality is that at least 73 percent of Black immigrants sixteen years of age and older are employed, compared to 67 percent of all immigrants and only 64 percent of those born in America.

Currently, there are about 11,000 Black immigrants under DACA protection, although the Migration Policy Institute has estimated there are 36,000 African immigrants eligible for the deferred action.

There are those who believe African Americans should not sit idly by on the issue of immigration. Make your voices heard on this issue. Call your congressman, attend a rally, raise your voice in this discussion.

As the president and his supporters continue to push their racist agenda, minorities can not afford to sit silent. We have learned from history—to be silent is to be complicit. We must speak out before silence morphs from complicity to something more sinister. As history has also taught us—silence, equals death.

PRISONERS UNITED IN SANTA CLARA COUNTY JAILS WIN 5 CORE DEMANDS & SACRIFICE 3 DAYS OF CUSTODY MEALS FOR THE HUNGRY

This is vile and this sheriff is the true criminal…I am honestly at a loss for words, all the information is below and on the original posts page, which I strongly encourage you to read and share….
This is vital and should be on international news… But if you watch “Fox News” or “CNN” chances are you won’t see this… They are for-profit media, controlled by greed, money and the government… Please check the below link for the full information…and please, share….

Silicon Valley De-Bug thanks Prisoners United on every floor in the Main Jail and housing units M-5 and M-8 in Elmwood D.O.C. for courageously sacrificing all their custody meals to be donated to the homeless and hungry at Emmanuel House Salvation Army.

We also appreciate all efforts made between jail administrators, community organizations and the jail population to come to an agreement to meet the 5 core demands to end meaningless classification reviews, indefinite solitary confinement, group punishment, cruel and unusual punishment during out of cell time, and rigid visitation policies.

FACTS THAT REFUTE SHERIFF SMITH’S COMMENT:

  • Over 70% of the Santa Clara County jail population is pretrial – meaning they have not been convicted of a crime.
  • Being in jail does not automatically mean someone is a gang member, according to the JFA Institute Jail Classification System Evaluation audit prepared by James Austin in 2016, there is only 21 verified prison gang members in Santa Clara County.
  • Prisoners United of Silicon Valley is the collective voice of the entire Santa Clara County jail population including all classification/security levels, color tops, racial groups (Black, White, Asian, Latino, Pacific Islander etc.) and creeds and is not lead by one man alone.
  • Salvation Army is a tremendous community resource for those in need, including programs for those who have been convicted of a crime.
 ###

FURTHER DETAILS/CLARIFICATIONS:

Santa Clara County jail administrators came to an agreement to meet the 5 core demands to end meaningless classification reviews, indefinite solitary confinement, group punishment, cruel and unusual punishment during out of cell time, and rigid visitation policies. However, the administration stated it will take 3 weeks for the new classification system to kick in.

According to the agreement, the classification system will have face-to-face hearings, opportunity for prisoners to call witnesses to speak in their defense, the use of things such as education and rehabilitation certificates to have influence on their hearings, and the opportunity to contest anything.

The administration also agreed to suspend all in-custody inputs until the new system is in place. i

Prisoners in the jails should also be able to see what is in their file.

Captains Grumbos and Taylor finalized agreements with some of the prisoners inside.

The challenge of only having 35 classification officers is still a question. 

10/26/17 MEDIA UPDATE

Due to the understanding that there was an agreement made to avoid a hunger strike, Prisoner United in the 6C sureno unit, who were just recently rehoused to unsanitary cells in 6A in the Main Jail, ordered from commissary this past Sunday/Monday.

Due to Sheriff Smith’s comment, Prisoners United reverted their efforts to refusing all custody meals to see to it that their food is in fact donated to the homeless and hungry at Salvation Army who serve gang impacted, those recovering from drug and alcohol recovery and formally incarcerated.

Just last night when Prisoners United in 6A (formally 6C) received their commissary orders, prisoners protested and courageously left food items from their order, with some of their orders as large as $100, outside their cells to ensure that their commissary food is donated to the homeless and hungry at Emmanuel House Salvation Army, and prevent food waste.

Prisoners United in sureno units 6A Main Jail and M4B in Elmwood will continue to go on strike until they can sit down with jail administrators to guarantee inclusion that their Protective Custody status will be removed from their classification file in the new classification system set to be active in the next following weeks.

i “…another form of conduct that is reported by staff on inmates [are] called the Custody Input Reports or CIRs. These are used to record both positive and negative conduct behavior. Unfortunately, the CIRs are not part of the Custody Bureau’s database and cannot be analyzed for the entire jail population. However, as shown later in the report, these data were manually collected for the pilot test on the inmates who had been in custody for at least 60 days.” from Aug 2016 Santa Clara County Office of the Sheriff Custody Bureau Jail Classification System Evaluation

Custody Inputs are basically an additional punitive tool that that does not fall under a rule violation/infraction or charge. The prisoner is given no notification, so the prisoner never knows what Custody Inputs are being put in their file. The administration agreed to give notice of every Custody Input in 3 weeks and to currently suspend all custody inputs so that it will not hold someone back from down-classing. Custody Inputs can also be used in the courts and follows you in prison. There should be no custody input. If its not an infraction or charge, then it should not be used as a tool of punitive action.

Find Your Local Rally for October 22nd, the National Day of Protest Against Police Brutality, Happening TODAY

” This October 22nd, stand with thousands across the country to express our collective outrage, creativity, and resistance in response to the crimes of this system. On October 22nd, WEAR BLACK, FIGHT BACK! ” – The October 22 Coalition

October 22 was been an important day for me for many, many years. It is the day of national police brutality protest. I’ve been taking part of this for at least a decade, missing a few years here and there yes but I never am away in spirit, usually always there in person, but sometimes sadly have had to miss. But I digress. I know protesting isn’t going to solve this issue.

However, I do think today is a day of duty to make sure everyone knows how angry we are, and that we are not going away. This protest has been going on since the late 1990s, and with more and more cities joining in, I hope everyone has a productive but also a safe day. Watch yourself and please know your rights for what they are worth. Protesting rights can be found here. [For what it is worth…Again, please be safe…]

Also tomorrow there is another important event going on in New York City. A court case over yet another murder by the police begins and as many people as possible are needed to support the family and cause. More information below, followed by a list of cities and your local events. First though, let’s take care of the two places I call home, but I’m gonna do it in reverse order, Newark first..

Newark, NJ, being one of those cities, as the poster below suggests. Today, October 22, at 3 pm in Newark, NJ, newark nj

“WE STAND UNITED IN DEFENSE OF OUR NEW CIVILIAN REVIEW BD AND WILL RALLY @ THE LINCOLN MONUMENT @ 3PM ” < Newark, NJ

And NEW YORK! STARTS AT 12pm TODAY!

As for my FIRST home, NYC, today at noon the rally begins at the steps of the Brooklyn Borough Hall. 

The page also included the following so I might as well: Take the 2/3 to Clark Street or Borough Hall, 4/5 to Borough Hall, A/C/F to Jay Street-Metrotech, R to Court Street.
March to Barclays Center for second rally follow. [Event Page HERE.]

And before the list of the rest of the cities, please note there is an important event is happening tomorrow, the 23rd. Please show up and show our numbers are not going down… We need the community now to unite more than ever…

“…in an upcoming court case against NYPD Officer Wayne Isaacs, who murdered Delrawn Small on July 4th of last year. The trail will start on 10/23 and is expected to last for 2-3 weeks. For morning attendance, arrive before 9 am to get through security/lines. Afternoon sessions begin after lunch around 2pm. Each day will probably recess sometime between 4-5pm.

Location: Brooklyn Supreme Court, 320 Jay Street, 2nd floorCeremonial Courtroom” Each day will probably recess sometime between 4-5pm.Txt (646) 302-8959 for any question you may have.

All Trains to Brooklyn Borough Hall “

You can access tomorrows event information by clicking here, which will take you to, like most of these event pages will take you to, the related Facebook group page, opening in a new tab.

I truly, truly hope we over flood the courts. I’m curious, how many of you can recall Delrawn Small’s killing? Especially those outside New York… Okay so later today I’ll either be putting up a post in Delrawn’s memory, or making a video; one of the two… After seeing how few people remember or know of this, it reminds me back when I was working in 2004…no one knew. And the few that did…

Anyway… For the rest of America, here ya go. If your city isn’t below, click here for the October 22 website and see what’s up; if nothing is going on, consider starting your own…Speak out, we need VOICES. We need action, honestly, but that’s another story…
