White Thugs Brawl At A ‘Cornhole Tournament’ And No One Calls The Cops

IntroThe cops are called on Black folks while sitting at Starbucks, eating at Applebee’s, trying to work out at LA Fitness, leaving an Airbnb, sleeping at Yale and just living life. Since it’s clear that some White people are using 911 as a weapon, it is notable to point out when White folks actually deserve the cops called on them—and nothing happens. Even times when they create a savage brawl that is caught on video.

Cornhole Tournament – or bean bag toss is a lawn game in which players take turns throwing bags of corn at a raised platform with a hole in the far end. A bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point. Play continues until a team or player reaches the score of 21.

Thugsa violent person, especially a criminal.

  • Last week, a pack of white savages in Douglas County, Georgia got into a brawl at a cornhole tournament, which is a bean bag toss game. They were publicly intoxicated and wildly beating each other.

Savage (of an animal or force of nature) fierce, violent, and uncontrolled.(of an animal or force of nature) fierce, violent, and uncontrolled.

The police were not called for the following reasons:

  1. There were no #thugs on the field.
  2. There were no Black folk there to call the police
  3. They displayed regular consistent behavior for Bag Throwing Tournament in Georgia
  4. No one was alarmed or afraid of their behavior.

 

Note:   Based on the intro it would lead one to believe that white folk are always calling the police on non-violent innocent Black folk (which is not true)!

Don’t Call Me Brother-Stage Play S.C.

don't call me brother

“Don’t Call Me Brother” Stage Play S.C. premiere

Thursday, March 15 – 31, 2018, ‘Times May Vary’ at WOW Performing Art Center (PAC) 5816 Shakespeare Rd a, Columbia, SC 29223

​In light of events occurring within the past several years, it seems that tragedy has struck the black community back-to-back in the form of police brutality, harassment, and hate crimes. Such tribulations are not foreign to Black Americans, however, the buildup of broken black bodies and false accusations has left them distressed and gasping for air in the congested minefield of civil injustice.

Cries for respect and human decency from police have exponentially evolved into a sonic boom for all the world to hear. One may wonder, where does the black police officer stand on these matters? Which side should they choose– the black or the blue side?  Stuck in the cross-hairs of their blackness and profession, the double consciousness of the black police officer is examined in the award-winning play “Don’t Call Me Brother” which has its SC premiere at the WOW Performing Arts CenterMarch 15-31st. On Sunday, March 18th the show will include a post-show panel with Richland County Sherrif’s Department. Buy Tickets Now..

Investigation shows officers get info from criminal history, motorist and other databases for entirely non-work-related reasons

Did You Know

In Florida, a Polk County sheriff’s deputy investigating a battery complaint ran driver’s license information of a woman he met and then messaged her unsolicited through Facebook.

If this is occurring in Florida what’s happening in your state?

We Live in a World…”I have consistently preached that nonviolence demands that the means we use must be as pure as the ends we seek”

we-live-in-a-world

This is best sign I have seen so far. Notice race isn’t brought up. We bring up the pressure of being a police officer, but don’t address what goes through a persons mind when a gun is put in their face by a police officer. I sympathize with anyone being killed unjustly. That includes the 5 police officers in Dallas. I hope we keep having open dialogue between law enforcement & the communities which they protect. We need as a society to think outside or ourselves. Do I think all cops are bad, NO. Do I know what it’s like to be black, NO. But I’m raising black kids. So this issue is important to me. When I hear Black Lives Matter, what I think ppl are saying is Black Ppl want to be safe & treated fairly, says Gary Owen

Folks are protesting, and people are getting killed during and around the protesting.  I’m quite sure this is very different from one the more successful protest, i.e. The Boston Tea Party,  or the many “non-violent” protest led by Martin Luther King.

It seems today is re-aligning itself with days gone by or have they gone anywhere?  Has the tree hangings turned in bullets raging across the lives of both innocent and guilty?

This complex social situation is perhaps best summed up by King himself in his “Letter from Birmingham Jail”, written to members of the Birmingham clergy and religious community who had urged patience and restraint of the civil rights movement. Of the Black Nationalist movement, King notes:

“The other force is one of bitterness and hatred, and it comes perilously close to advocating violence. It is expressed in the various black nationalist groups that are springing up across the nation, the largest and best-known being Elijah Muhammad’s Muslim movement. Nourished by the Negro’s frustration over the continued existence of racial discrimination, this movement is made up of people who have lost faith in America, who have absolutely repudiated Christianity, and who have concluded that the white man is an incorrigible “devil.” I have tried to stand between these two forces, saying that we need emulate neither the “do-nothingism” of the complacent nor the hatred and despair of the black nationalist. For there is the more excellent way of love and nonviolent protest.”

Have we has a people merely tolerated too much for too long?  Have we scraped the bottom of the barrel and found there is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Have we been oppressed so long that even the Word of God no longer prevails?  Have ever actually given God a try?

Scripture states in II Timothy 3 –

3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

That’s some harsh direct information from Paul. He proclaimed we would be without self-control, boastful and proud sound a lot like some of us already falling into these categories.  If Paul was right and these are the signs of the “last days” how far are we from the “Last” day and if we are not even close I shutter to think what this world will look like next year based on the behavior of folks today.
