 A man injured after being arrested by the Baltimore police died today, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Freddie Gray had to undergo a double surgery on three broken vertebrae and an injured voice box on Tuesday, after he was released by the police. He died today after days of remaining in a coma.

The 27-year old was arrested last week for an undisclosed violation. The police said that he was restrained on the ground by an officer during the arrest, but appeared to be fine when he was taken to the district station. However, a cell phone video shows that the arresting officers used force that some may seen as “brutal.”

Protests have broken out in his neighborhood since Gray was sent to the hospital.

“What happened to Freddie was unnecessary and uncalled for,” the Rev. Jamal Harrison Bryant of the Empowerment Temple said to protestors on Saturday. “All of those police officers involved need to be held accountable and answer for what they did, and need to be terminated from their positions,” he urged.

Tim Wise-‘White Like Me’ Documentary

angrymanspeaks:

I have heard of Tim Wise before but I never heard him speak before.

It’s an hour long video but well worth the time. Even those of us who believe we are against racism and have been speaking out can learn things from this documentary. Thanks to D and D for this oh so accurate look at ourselves and our nation.

An excellent documentary from the always on-point Mr. Tim Wise. It really gets to the heart of the matter regarding the cancer of racism, and how it has affected every segment of a mostly civilized society. Perhaps,this country will never become “post-racial”, but as Wise strongly suggests throughout this piece…the goal should be for it to become “post racist.” I couldn’t agree with him more as we witness the continued, unwelcome, demonic rise of Tea Party driven insanity that threatens to tear U.S. apart.~Daryl~

Why We Aren’t In Step With Die Deutschen?

This is a comment by a reader of the previous article on Eideard’s site.

None of this requires extra smarts. The broad core of the German Left ain’t different from ours. They just sweep opportunist wimps to one side. The broad core of German Conservatives accept class collaboration instead of religion-based 19th Century economic myth as their guide. Both sides put national progress ahead of superstition and greed. Even their (successful) improvements over unemployment insurance during the Bush Great Recession required cooperation and both classes improved their lot. Compare this to birdbrain Democrats and turdbrain Republicans.”

Angryman says:

I have been listening to the bullshit coming from the fossil fuel industry for 40 years. That was the year of the “First Arab Oil Embargo”.
It was being strongly suggested that we begin to switch our nation to renewable and perpetual energy sources and  the same rhetoric was spewing from their lying mouths then; as now.

Too expensive to implement.
Not efficient enough.
Take too long to make it profitable. (A telling phrase)
Take too long to build the industry.

The other day, the electric meter for all of Germany ran backwards for 8 hours!

Thanks Eideard for the good news. The nation of Hitler and Goering has beaten us to self sufficiency. No offense to Germany but isn’t this just a little embarrassing for us?

Germany’s electricity traders may face busy weekends as sunny weather positions the nation for a season of solar power records.

After Wednesday’s all-time high of 27.7 gigawatts, Europe’s biggest electricity market is poised for new highs in the next few days or weeks, according to group meteorologist Marcus Boljahn at MeteoGroup. The previous record of 24.2 gigawatts was set on June 6, 2014, when fewer solar panels were installed, the weather forecaster said. One gigawatt is about equal to the capacity of a nuclear reactor…

Germany’s planned decade-long, 120 billion-euro ($127 billion) shift to cleaner energy from fossil fuels has made the nation the biggest economy in the world to rely so heavily on renewable power. Unpredictable solar and wind energy can flood the grid, resulting in negative power prices, when generators must pay consumers to take electricity. The risk is higher at weekends, when usage slows as offices and…

White Pride; Celebrate it?

white pride drivingEvery day I get up and eat breakfast; go to the store; shop; drive my car; go home to my family; and sleep through the night without fear of being harassed or arrested; beaten; shot; or misidentified because I look like every other white guy on the street.

 

How much more can I celebrate my “Whiteness”? Just doing these things is celebration enough.

 

If I was Black; all of those things would be a risk to my life and freedom.
