(Jaimes Campbell) 60,000 soldiers of color, mainly black, were used in experiments during WWII. No, this wasn’t Nazi Germany locking people of color in gas chambers, this was done by the US Government.

According to NPR, 60,000 American soldiers of color were enrolled in a secret chemical weapons testing program. These soldiers were exposed to Lewisite and Mustard gas. Exposure to these chemical agents causes lung irritation and blisters. These soldiers of color were locked into gas chambers and exposed to the agents. The government used white soldiers as the control group.

(Josh Voorhees) A new Reuters/Ipsos poll paints a particularly depressing picture of the U.S. electorate’s opinions on race. The main takeaways from the survey, which was released late Tuesday: A significant slice of Americans expressed racist views against blacks, and those who identify as Donald Trump supporters are more likely to fall into that group, though Hillary Clinton supporters are definitely there too.

Pollsters interviewed 16,000 Americans and asked them to grade whites and blacks on a series of personal traits, ranging from their intelligence to lawfulness. “In nearly every case,” the outlet notes, “Trump supporters were more likely to rate whites higher than blacks when their responses were compared with responses from Clinton supporters.”

My Commentary: No surprise there, for those of us who actually pay attention, rather than swallow lies.

Ain’t No Half-Steppin’ in the Battle for Freedom!

As I noted then, “Upon stripping away the thin veneer of ‘political affiliations,’ and allowing Individual thoughts and actions to take their rightful place as the only real indicators of character, it turns out that many of these pale-skinned ‘progressives’ from NYC and California are just as pathetically ignorant and racist as their neo-conned counterparts! And, so long as these half-stepping wannabes think that police and courts are mostly targeting brown skin, at least 73% of them comfortably lend their full and faithful consent and support to the American Police State!!! For these human race traitors, ‘innocent until proven guilty’ is their own ‘white privilege,’ instead of a universal RIGHT for all!”

Giuliani Tells Parents: Teach Your Kids To Fear Black Children, Not The Police:
http://countercurrentnews.com/2016/08/giuliani-tells-parents-teach-kids-fear-black-children-not-police/

(Tasha Sharifa) Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani sounds off in an out of touch stament advising Black parents how to raise their children saying: “You’ve got to teach your children to be respectful to the police, and you’ve got to teach your children that the real danger to them is not the police.”

He was addressing the concerns African Americans had with interactions with law inforcement in the wake of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile on CBS’ Face the Nation. Instead of using this as an opportunity to learn about genuine concerns, he instead turned the tables and blamed the vicims.
