Know Anyone Who Thinks Racial Profiling Is Exaggerated? Watch This, And Tell Me When Your Jaw Drops.


This video clearly demonstrates how racist America is as a country and how far we have to go to become a country that is civilized and actually values equal justice. We must not rest until this goal is achieved. I do not want my great grandchildren to live in a country like we have today. I wish for them to live in a country where differences of race and culture are not ignored but valued as a part of what makes America great.

A Story About Race - Neil deGrasse Tyson

Why it's time to take domestic terrorism seriously | MSNBC

After the deadly Oklahoma City bombing on April 19, 1995, then-Attorney General Janet Reno formed a special task force to coordinate the country’s response to the threat of domestic terrorism.
The task force was scheduled to hold one of its monthly meetings on Sept. 11, 2001, but did not for obvious reasons. In fact, because the threat of jihadist terrorism has taken so much of the government’s attention since 9/11, the special task force has never met again.
The killings in Overland Park, Kansas, last Sunday remind us, however, that the threat of domestic terrorism is still very real. What’s more, Saturday is the anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing, an event that killed 168 people and led to the formation of the now-defunct special federal task force. It is time, therefore, to ask whether the pendulum has swung too far in the direction of jihadist terrorism.
There were actually good reasons to ask this very question before the events of the past week – a point we made in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder and then-Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano last year.
A 2006-2007 survey of state police agencies sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), for example, found that more states reported the presence of far-right anti-government, neo-Nazi and racist skinhead groups than Islamic extremists. Since the time of that survey, our tracking shows that the number of far-right anti-government groups has exploded, and the number of neo-Nazi and racist skinhead groups has remained at an extraordinarily high level.

U.S. more oligarchy than democracy, study suggests | MSNBC

Americans may like to think they live in a Democracy, but a new study suggests the opinions of a moneyed elite class are far more influential than those of the masses.
The study, by professors at Northwestern and Princeton, found that policies supported by economic elites and business interest groups were far more likely to become law than those they opposed.
It also found that the preferences of the middle class made essentially no difference to a bill’s fate.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson Said What He Thinks About Race Now That He's Made It, And Almost Nobody Noticed

To set the scene, the (poorly posed) question is referring to comments made by former Treasury Secretary and Harvard University President Lawrence Summers, who suggested that genetic differences could explain why there are fewer girls in science. Yup, he really was Treasury secretary and president of Harvard.
Neil deGrasse Tyson's answer is, um, out of this world. There, I said it. Let me have this one.

Report: NSA Used Heartbleed Security Flaw To Spy On People For Two Years

"After a week of speculation from security experts, Bloomberg reported Friday that the National Security Agency has actively known about and exploited the Heartbleed security bug for at least two years. According to Michael Riley:"

Talk About Income Inequality! De Blasio Is No Bloomberg, Tax Returns Confirm - NYTimes.com

"New Yorkers already knew that Mayor Bill de Blasio was far less prosperous than his billionaire predecessor, Michael R. Bloomberg. But tax documents released on Tuesday, the filing deadline, revealed just how stark that contrast is.

Mr. de Blasio and his wife, Chirlane McCray, reported $165,047 in adjusted gross income for 2013, a combination of his pay as public advocate, a tax refund and $45 in interest.

The mayor had no book deals, either — unlike Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, who found last year that writing a memoir can be more lucrative than governing New York. His newfound literary riches were disclosed on Tuesday as reporters inspected his tax returns as well."
