FEATURE: NYPD Shootings should not be an excuse to criticize the protests

This weekend two police officers - Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos - were fatally shot as they sat in their patrol car in Brooklyn, an attack that comes off the back of growing protests against the New York Police Department; protests which followed the non indictment of the officer involved in the chokehold death of Eric Garner. As unfortunate as said events are, it is also sad to see non-violent protestors blamed for the action of one misguided and mentally imbalanced man. Kareem Abdul-Jammar…See More

In 1944, at the age of 14, George Stinney Jr. became the youngest person to be executed in the United States in the 20th century - charged with the murder of  two young white girls in the small town of Alcolu, South Carolina. The young boy claimed he was innocent; and many years later, Civil rights advocates tried tirelessly to get his case reopened - arguing that police coerced a confession out of the frightened teenager. Now, seventy years later, Stinney Jr. has…

“This country is as much ours as it the whites, whether they will admit it now or not, they will see and believe it by and by.” "America is more our country than it is the whites—we have enriched it with our blood, sweat and tears.” "The bare name of educating the coloured people scares our cruel oppressors almost to death.” These quotes are from a man who informed the thinking of the likes of Frederick Douglass, W.E.B. DuBois, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. Yet…
