I warn you that something terrible is about to go down, and Ferguson is a sign., Black people in America, the despised, the rejected, the unloved, the unwanted, the suffering people of God, you are his choice! And that's what the trouble in the world is all about.
There can be no peace in Gaza, there can be no peace in the Ukraine, or in Korea, or Japan, or China, or Europe, or Central and South America until the problem of the Black man and woman in America has been solved with justice!
Imagine 67% of Ferguson is Black. Six city councilmen - 5 are White. Fifty-three policemen and three are Black. Something is wrong with that picture. What happened to one man one vote?
I don't know about the store they say he (Michael Brown) strong-armed somebody and took some cigars, but I I know this... when you live in the hood you don't control no economics. You have got people in our community taking the money out but not giving a damn thing to this community.
...sometimes the way that we represent God is so reprehensible, that in the eyes of our young people, preachers look like pimps! Leadership is afraid of our young people.
We who are leading the people, live better than the people we lead. That's not bad...but it's HORRIBLE!!!
I'm not a Jew. I'm not a Palestinian . I'm a human being. But if my heart, as a human, does not ache for the suffering of our people, fellow human beings, fellow suffers and travelers on the earth, then I am dead...morally and spiritually!

He (a minister) said, "Minister, there's been gang warfare...and the gangs have shot up a quarter of million dollars of property and the mayor called me and asked me if I would intercede to try and stop the violence. The young gang leaders are saying if you tell them to put the guns down, they'll do it. Will you send a message to them?" I said well let me think about it. And as I began thinking, I said, "I didn't tell them to pick the guns up, why should I be the one to tell them to put the guns down? "
"It's wonderful to grow old with dignity and strength. It's wonderful to grow old and not be a punk!"

"Yeah, I Said it!"
Rioting and Free Shopping
Columnist Stella Foster's Opinions on Ferguson, Missouri and "Blackacide"!

THE BLACK FOLKS in Saint Louis, Missouri are so heartbroken about the killing of 18-year -old Mike Brown, who was shot multiple times while in the process of being arrested by a St. Louis cop, that they decided to start a "fire sale" and money-free gift shopping by rioting, looting and burning dozens of stores in that area. Well, any excuse, I guess, is ok if you have set your sights on a 52 inch flat screen that was in a window. Those folks, alot of whom look like straight up thugs, are so torn up inside over that black kid's death that people started protesting at the St. Louis police station.
IN TODAY'S CULTURE OF VIOLENCE AND MURDERS IN black communities in this country, I must admit, I have become almost apathetic because in black neighborhoods, the ongoing "blackacide" aka blacks killing blacks, is so overwhelmingly alarming and depressing that I just refuse to get bent out of shape. I will assume that Brown was unlawfully gunned down and when the investigation,etc. runs its course, the cop will be duly sentenced by a hard nose judge. But even after they stop rioting and Brown makes his home-going know what is not going to change?
BLACKS KILLING BLACKS IN THIS COUNTRY! It has been reported that since Trayvon Martin was killed in Florida, over 11,000 murders have occurred by blacks killing...guess who? BLACKS! For some unexplained reason, it seems like some blacks think that only another black has the right to kill one of us! How dare a white cop come along and shoot one of our finest teens?
THE PROTESTERS ARE SCREAMING "Stop the Killer Cops" and the usual, "NO Justice No peace"! We all know that there are good cops and bad cops, and the bad ones definitely need to be sorted out and kicked off the police force. But, one thing is for sure, if you are out in these streets and you are assaulted, robbed or attacked, the first person you want too see and call for is a policeman.

A Missouri city erupts
against police murder
My Unarmed Son!!!"
Protesters raise their hands in mock replication of the surrender of Michael Brown before he was shot and killed.
By Nicole Coulson
August 12, 2014
That was the heartbreaking message Louis Head wrote on a piece of cardboard and held up for the community to see after his stepson, Michael Brown, was shot down by a cop in the streets of Ferguson, Mo., on August 9.
The death of the 18-year-old ignited the bitter outrage of a community that says police brutality directed at Black men is all-too-common in this majority-African American suburb outside St. Louis, leading to angry protests two nights in a row.
Mainstream media outlets focused on the damage done to property during the demonstrations, but for millions of people around the country, horror at the police execution of another unarmed Black youth--and the sense that it's time something is done about police violence--were the dominant feelings.
According to the police version of events, a shop owner reported that someone allegedly matching Brown's description shoplifted from their store. Later, an officer--who still had not been named when this report written--stopped Brown and a friend as they walked down a street, say the cops, and Brown attempted to push the officer into his car and tried grab for the officer's gun.
Police say one shot was fired from the officer's gun during the struggle. Then, after the unarmed Brown fled, the cop fired several shots at Brown, fatally wounding the teen.
Witnesses tell a completely different story. Dorian Johnson, who was walking with Michael Brown, and Piaget Crenshaw, a bystander who witnessed the shooting, told Fox 2 News that after confronting Brown and Johnson for walking in the street, the officer began assaulting Brown by choking him, and trying to pull Brown into his squad car. His weapon fired at least once at this point.
When both teens ran, the officer then fired a second shot. Johnson told reporters at the scene, "[The officer] shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air and started to get down, and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots."
"We weren't causing no harm to nobody," Johnson said. "We had no weapons on us at all."
Brown's family and friends learned of his death because his lifeless body laid in the streetfor some four hours while police "investigated"--or tried to get their stories straight about a case of cold-blooded murder, to judge from the eyewitness accounts.
As the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported, Brown's friends "saw photos of him lying in the street on Canfield Drive where his body remained for hours.
Some joined the crowds of mourners and protesters who had gathered there since the shooting in protest of how Brown had died: Black, unarmed and from multiple gunshots."
