just think, he'll be back at work real soon...🤔 . . . The Baton Rouge Police Department placed Sergeant Chris Kuhn on administrative leave after it was found that he posted racist messages on an online blog. Kuhn, who was also treasurer of the Baton Rouge Police Union, was dismissed from his position. The police union discovered Kuhn’s comments on the website Tigerdroppings, where he posted under the screen name “Pesticide” and made remarks denigrating Blacks, Asians, and those of the Jewish faith. Investigators were able to connect the posts back to Kuhn using his phone number, which was attached to the screen name. As shown by WBRZ-TV 2, some posts perpetuated racist, anti-Jewish and anti-Asian ideologies. In one post Kuhn wrote, “My old man taught me don’t be like them, get off your a** and go to work. So yeah, I was raised in racism. Worked out pretty good so far.” One thread, entitled “What happened to the Chick-fil-A on college?” had a response from Kuhn that read, “I love the one in Denham…. kids in Denham have some pride and manners unlike the s*** birds in Baton Rouge…. thank God for the Amite River. Natural barrier to keep the trash out. That and some people can’t swim.” In another asking “Would you rather live under Hilter or Stalin?” Kuhn answered, “Hitler. I’m German so I’m good.” Kuhn also posted about sexually harassing and assaulting women, and ridiculed the Baton Rouge Police Department administration by calling it a three-ring circus.

A Clayton County correctional officer who will be fired after the sheriff said he used a racial epithet against an inmate has two other terminations on his record, according to information obtained Monday by AJC.com Officer Gregory Hubert Brown is on administrative leave without pay in connection with the latest incident, but “will be fired within the next 72 hours,” Sheriff Victor Hill said just before 3:30 p.m. Sunday in a statement. According to the sheriff, Brown referred to an inmate on suicide watch as a “crazy n-word." Other inmates and another correctional officer witnessed the statement, the sheriff’s office said. No other details about the incident were released. It will be the third time that Brown has been fired from a position in a correctional facility in the last 10 years, Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council records show. In December 2010, Brown was fired from the Coweta County Prison for “workplace violence,” after a two-year stint as a corrections officer, according to a POST investigation case summary. In that summary, officials said Brown threatened and pushed another officer during a “heated verbal and physical encounter." “Officer GB was asked to fill in incomplete information on an inmate count form by Officer AW,” the summary said. “Officer GB completed the information, but turned toward him and said ‘If you ever jump in my (expletive ) again, I will tear your (expletive ) head off of your shoulders.’” Brown then walked “aggressively” toward the officer and pushed him with his chest, according to the summary.

A member of the grand jury in the Breonna Taylor case filed a motion in Louisville, Kentucky, on Monday to have the sealed grand jury transcripts and records released "so that the truth may prevail." The motion, filed in Jefferson County five days after the jury’s decision was announced, also asks that the jurors be allowed to speak on the case as a matter of public interest, according to the petition. In the petition, an attorney on behalf of the anonymous juror notes that Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron made public statements that “attempted to make it very clear that the grand jury alone made the decision.” “The citizens of this Commonwealth have demonstrated their lack of faith in the process and proceedings in this matter and the justice system itself,” the filing said. “Using the grand jurors as a shield to deflect accountability and responsibility for these decisions only sows more seeds of doubt in the process while leaving a cold chill down the spines of future grand jurors.” Cameron announced last week that the grand jury had chosen not to indict any of the three officers who fired their guns in the police raid that killed Breonna Taylor with homicide charges. One former officer, Brett Hankison, faces charges of wanton endangerment for firing into a neighbor's home. He pleaded not guilty Monday.

. . . Donald Trump‘s former social media guru-turned campaign manager who used Facebook to nefariously target Black voters has been reportedly placed in an involuntary psychiatric hold in Florida over concerns he could kill himself. Brad Parscale, who ran Trump’s re-election campaign until he was replaced in June, reportedly had guns handy and was threatening to die by suicide. The 44-year-old who still works for Trump apparently barricaded himself in the Fort Lauderdale home he shares with his wife, who called the police and said “her husband was armed, had access to multiple firearms inside the house and was threatening to kill himself,” according to Local 10 news. The Washington Post reported that even though Parscale was armed and allegedly had additional guns he could use, police “safely negotiated for him to exit the home.” It was the kind of scenario that has many times resulted in deadly police violence when Black people find themselves similarly in need of help. Details were immediately scarce and it was unclear what may have provoked Parscale’s behavior, which came hours before the New York Times’ bombshell report that Trump has largely avoided paying federal taxes for the better part of the past two decades and is hundreds of millions of dollars in debt. According to the Post’s report, Parscale wasn’t happy he had been demoted. There were also “attacks from people who were questioning his behavior as campaign manager.” Parscale lost his job as Trump’s re-election campaign manager but still remained on staff as a senior adviser for data and digital operations. He first worked as Trump’s social media director in 2016, back when he targeted Black voters with “dark posts” to diminish Black voter turnout for Hillary Clinton. read more via news one.com #BradParscale 🚫 #trump 🚫 know(the )ledge 🌎 . to donate $1 OR more: (Cash App ) $payoxpro . . #noantiblackracism #FoundationalBlackAmericans #tangibles2020 #benignneglect #firstthem #racesoldiers #hiphopculture #supportblackbusinesses #supportblackpeople #knowledge #blacklove #hiphop #independentartist #undergroundhiphop #90sHipHop #hiphopworldwide #djoxworldwide2

Christopher Cantwell, known for his involvement in the violent "Unite the Right" 2017 rally in Virginia, was found guilty Monday in a case related to a rape threat and extortion using the online messaging app Telegram. Cantwell, 39, was convicted of one count of transmitting extortionate communications and one count of threatening to injure property or reputation, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Hampshire. The jury found him not guilty of a cyberstalking count. Prosecutors said Cantwell sent a series of threatening messages because he believed members of an online group called the “Bowl Patrol” had been harassing him online. Cantwell sought the leader of the group, someone who went by the name “Vic Mackey,” and harassed an unidentified individual for the information. Cantwell threatened to “dox” the individual, a practice of posting someone’s personal contact information online, and report the person to child protective services in a number of messages between June 15, 2019, and June 17, 2019, the U.S. attorney's office said. “So if you don’t want me to come and f--- your wife in front of your kids, then you should make yourself scarce,” one message said. “Give me Vic, it’s your only out.” Prosecutors said they presented evidence during trial that Cantwell followed through on his threats to dox the individual and made a report to child protection authorities in Missouri. The conviction should serve as a warning for anyone using the internet to send such messages, U.S. Attorney Scott W. Murray for the District of New Hampshire said.

We’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about whether we sell BLM shirts. We don’t. Clearly, we believe Black Lives Matter & stand with the movement, but we don’t personally sell shirts with the exact message. A few of our favorite Black owned shops that DO are @desiraes_closet , @aydensrainbow and @therosieladybug . Oh and we’ve already got one of these pennants from @homebodyprintco on the way 😍 #blacklivesmatter Remember to always support Black owned businesses, this week and every week in the future. Economic empowerment is one of the critical paths to Black liberation.

Justice for #georgefloyd . I can't believe that we're in the second half of 2020 and such racist actions still occur. We have achieved great accomplishments in science, medicine, technology and we still don't put equality and humanity first. The way black people are treated is so frustrating, the least we could do is show support and be informed about what happens around us. Unfortunately this isn't an individual case, there are so many similar incidents. Pray for Minnesota and black people all around the world. I'm not black but I stand by them,all lives can't matter if black ones don't. No progress will be made If awareness isn't raised and people keep speaking and standing up. You all stay safe and stick together for our fellow human beings' shake🙏 #georgefloyd #blacklivesmatter #america #pray #prayforblackpeople #justice #equality #peace #support #supporteachother #standup #supportblackpeople 🙇‍♀️ • Any hate comments will be deleted, this is a safe place.

I can't sit here and claim to be the most educated person on the history of systemic racism in our country and around the world, I have much to learn but I can speak as a person of colour and talk of my experiences and tell you how exhausted and upset I feel right now. I’m mixed raced, my birth mother is white and my father is black. I was adopted as a baby into a wonderful white family. We lived in a small village, surrounded by white people, I didn't really meet another black person until I was fifteen years old. I've been called a nigger, a wog, been told to go back to my own country, mocked because of my hair. Not so many years ago someone described my afro hair as ”fun” I've felt isolated and an outsider because of the colour of my skin. I've struggled a lot over the years with my identity being adopted, mixed raced and not knowing much about my ethnic background. I've recently found my birth father and the black side of my family which is amazing to finally learn more about my ethnic background. I'm proud to be black! I love my skin, I love my hair, I'm beautiful and I'm powerful. To the people who disagree with the Black lives matter movement and what people are fighting for.. You don't agree that my life matters, I'm ashamed to know you and please leave my life right now. To the people who are posting about Black Lives matter of social media because you see it a trend, please don't. Thin isn't a Trend it's centuries of racial injustice and oppression. If you aren't really interested in educating yourselves or trying to make a difference we don't want to hear from you. To the people who do care and want to make a difference, educate yourselves, your children and those around you. Speak to your friends of colour, listen to there experiences, read some books, watch some films and most importantly, speak up and let the world know that you stand for making a change.✊🏾

🎉Happy Juneteeth! I learned about this holiday aka "American's second-Independence Day" from the Netflix show @blackafnetflix . It's a SUPER fun sitcom about @kenyabarris 's living in LA with his family and spitting out his witty and honest take on parenting, relationships and of course, being Black. It's a great way to understand how society unknowingly treats Black people, celebrate the works of Black artists and learn Black history in a light-hearted but educated manner, which makes this show great for teens! It's also a must if you love @rashidajones , which is why I first began to watch it! She's hilarious. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Side note: This show actually makes me want to have kids because of the realness they show in not knowing all the time how to raise kids and the beauty of being honest with them like you would a friend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🇺🇸Ok but onto why we celebrate today: In 1865, Union army general Gordon Granger announced federal orders in the city of Galveston, Texas proclaiming that all slaves in Texas were now free. Note that this is almost two years after the Emancipation Proclamation technically freed all slaves. It took a terribly slow time for the Union troops to get to Texas, the most remote of slave states, and enforce the proclamation, but it finally happened!!! (paraphrased from Wikipedia ) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🚀[Bringing it to current events & nerding out a bit] The Galactic Empire is still at large, lurking behind the scenes. Keep fighting for our fellow Rebels' true freedom. #blacklivesmatter is not a one-time event or trend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📺Please watch @ blackafnetflix, have a bundle of laughs and let me know what you thought of the show! I'm really bummed we finished the series so fast. Hoping for a season two! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📍Star Wars Land at @disneyland California 📷Photo by Mike who insisted we get this shot (with my phone ) and even asked people to move out of the way although I didn't bother them. So happy he did! #sarchetrit_california
