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.

Methane Forcing People to Relocate in Cali; As the Horrific Water Crisis in Flint Continues…

While in Flint, MI, the people are struggling under the weight of an unjust, racist system that allows the government and companies to use land near mostly Black and/or poor neighborhoods to be exposed to not only unsafe air pollution, a less than satisfactory quality of living; but also toxic waste, lead -as we see in Flint, MI, where President Obama has just declared a state of emergency and former resident Michael Moore has an ongoing petition going to arrest Governor Synder for his “premeditated actions” of his “administrators,” Mr. Moore goes on to speak more truth by then tragically but truthfully stating:

 

“…you have effectively poisoned, not just some, but apparently ALL of the children in my hometown of Flint, Michigan.

And for that, you have to go to jail.

To poison all the children in an historic American city is no small feat. Even international terrorist organizations haven’t figured out yet how to do something on a magnitude like this.

But you did. Your staff and others knew that the water in the Flint River was poison — but you decided that taking over the city and “cutting costs” to “balance the budget” was more important than the people’s health (not to mention their democratic rights to elect their own leaders).
So you cut off the clean, fresh glacial lake water of Lake Huron that the citizens of Flint (including myself) had been drinking for decades and, instead, made them drink water from the industrial cesspool we call the Flint River — a body of “water” where toxins from a dozen General Motors and DuPont factories have been dumped for over a hundred years.”

Michael Moore was in Flint, MI, discussing the water crisis, calling on President Obama for help and protesting with the people against those in control over this tragic and sick attempt to put money before humanity.

URGENT-State of Emergency RE Water in Flint, MI

“People are already experiencing skin lesions, hair loss, chemical-induced hypertension, vision loss and depression. Children exposed to lead experience developmental impacts such as lowered IQ, decreased ability to pay attention, and diminished academic achievement.”

First, there is a petition and short article below my rant. I apologize for talking so much but the lack of humanity makes me so disgusted. Anyway!
So before I had so much of a chance to do in depth research regarding Flint, Michigan, a press release stating the mayor has called for a state of emergency due to widespread lead-poisoned water. Sadly, this isn’t isolated to this one “incident” and yes those others are here in the states, happening now too. I’ll have more on Flint and others shortly…Screen Shot 2015-12-20 at 1.27.47 PM

For now, the people of Flint are suffering physical, mental and living with fear due to unsafe, unclean & undrinkable water.

Yes, of course there is bottle water; which not all can afford, but even those who obtain it are being robbed intentionally as this water pollution could have been stopped and prevented.

To those who think like the person whom originally brought up bottled water being the solution, I again say, temporarily there is some bottled water, but for how long?

Moreover, think of the money people & corporations make when everyone needs their  “product”. That is one of many things I’ll be researching and sharing very soon. The people are not only being abused but also used for heartless money. That’s obvious I believe, but again I’ll have more research regarding Flint and too many other places soon.

Article below, petition with it… I will have a proper post up soon with information not shared and also a video. Remember, this is blatant racism; and it kills. Water poisons are not the only risk factor too many Black Americans are faced with when speaking on environmental issues in the community. This is barely gracing the tip of it… That should enrage and scare you, we must fight, educate; we can get change but we have to fight for it.

Of course Black Lives DO Matter; that’s why issues like this are even more important. There’s no way all these issues which mainly and greatly target the Black community are happening “by chance” or for any other reason.

Logic and living in America even if your white, you should be able to see clearly how real and how horrific things are. Racism, hate crimes and murders allowed and executed by the US government within the Black community.  again, disproportionately. And don’t forget, the majority of these victims are unarmed, or a kid, or ‘they ran and he may have had a gun’ or because the cop ‘thought he had a gun but turned out to be skittles’.

American history, TRUE Black History proves both the environmental issues and the police being able to kill innocent people at will and walk away to be more than a coincidence. During the civil rights movement in the 60s the FBI documented wanting to divide and conquer and to ‘get rid of’ the Black community. Those documents were leaked and now can be found; official papers writing their true, racist feelings and sick desires.

Right now it seems the government hasn’t changed much when usually it is the Black community whom are the targets; whom have to deal with loved ones being murdered for no reason, even children and the elderly, only to add salt to the wound by watching the murderer be released after being found not guilty. After experiencing the ‘hardships’ of the police’s tragic but expected paid vacation  causes such as having nothing to do with ones time. But more frequently than not they need not worry; most cops are headed back in with their badge to kill on their chest within a few weeks, on the streets again is the murderer, even though they were caught committing a hate crime, a murder, a beating, etc.

So screw anyone who thinks environmental issues, such as the above or police brutality, aren’t related greatly to racism has no right to spread their self pity and lies. I can prove the racism and give numbers on how Blacks and whites are impacted by environmental related issues. Thing is they can’t offer any form of research or factual evidence unless it was ‘self made’ or created by their friend. It baffles me we have people who actually can say racism isn’t real or involved in this… Wow.

The mayor of Flint, MI just declared a state of emergency due to widespread lead-poisoning caused by unsafe drinking water.

Public health studies have shown that lead levels have doubled in Flint since the city switched its public water supply to the Flint River in April 2014, due in part to the negligence of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.

While the city’s water has been switched to a different source, it’s not certain that the water is now safe. Even worse, the public health crisis the lead-laden water has created has not been addressed. The most vulnerable to lead poisoning are children and pregnant women.

As the mayor pointed out in her declaration, the effects of lead poisoning are significant, irreversible and create huge needs for increased social services, such as special education and mental health services, and the juvenile justice system.

People are already experiencing skin lesions, hair loss, chemical-induced hypertension, vision loss and depression. Children exposed to lead experience developmental impacts such as lowered IQ, decreased ability to pay attention, and diminished academic achievement.

This petition calls on Gina McCarthy, the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency to take control of ensuring the safety of Flint’s water from the Michigan DEQ.  Additionally, the EPA must work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services; and the state of Michigan to develop a funded, long-term, lead action plan to ensure that the citizens of Flint will not be abandoned.

Most Violent Areas are Also the Area’s Lacking Emergency Care and Access…. Critical Read, I Believe.

This is a fact filled article written perfectly already so just gonna copy and paste…it is also one that brings up a highly disturbing fact: the neighborhoods with the most violence are the ones with the least easy access to emergency trauma units… Read below to see exactly how horrible this crisis is…sadly, it also points out the racial discrimination still going on in America.

Oh…One thing I wanna note though, I am very proud to be against taking guns off the street. Taking guns away will not stop violence, it will just be another door for the police and government to frame and lock away young men and women, in my opinion. I will explain that another time. For now; I believe we all have the right to bare arms, especially in the current time. It makes me very sad that these guns are being used on each other; people seem to be forgetting there is a real enemy, and it has nothing to do with color, gangs, etc….. Anyhow, here is the original post with link below.

Chicago’s most crime-ridden neighborhoods have no access to trauma care.
BY Rebecca Burns

The nation finally took notice of Chicago’s epidemic of gun violence after 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton was fatally shot January 29. Pendleton was the city’s 42nd victim that month, but her appearance at President Obama’s inauguration just weeks before pushed her death to the center of a national conversation on gun control. Since 2008, more young people have been killed in Chicago than in any other American city—a statistic that has sent city officials in search of solutions to plug loopholes in gun policy and crack down on gang violence.

But Veronica Morris-Moore, 20, a community organizer from Chicago’s Woodlawn neighborhood, believes politicians are looking for solutions in the wrong places. “If they’re not going to talk about the economic violence that causes gun violence, then I’m not interested in the conversation,” she says.

Left out of the gun-control debate, Morris-Moore says, are the poverty and lack of services that plague neighborhoods with high rates of gun violence—including what she calls a “trauma care desert” for gunshot victims on Chicago’s South Side.
