OAKLAND OUTREACH!(PHOTO ESSAY)

BY: LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

On Saturday may 16, 2015 in the economically disenfranchised and rapidly being gentrified Eastside of Oakland, California, in the early morning where many of the local residents were asleep literally and many more are still asleep (like sleeping beauty) figuratively, local and rising activist Shawn Wolf and his grassroots organization The Bay Area Black Community held their second town hall meeting and community outreach at the Williams Chapel Baptist Church. Some of the other speakers at the event were local activists: Richard Nelson, Marshall Walker and former Black Panther Dedan J. Jaga.

BY:LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

White supremacist and psychopath George Zimmerman, the man who murdered Trayvon Martin on February of 2012, was involved in yet another violent incident.

This time though he appears to be the victim, after reportedly being shot at after waving a gun at a fellow driver, in an act of road rage. Unfortunately for the innocent people living in South Florida, he only received minor injuries because of the glass from the windshield that was hit by the bullet, he was not shot himself and was released from the hospital shortly after receiving medical attention.

In the so-called liberal and tolerant city by the bay, eight San Francisco law enforcement officers have been suspended and are expected to be fired for sending out racist and homophobic texts.

The discovery raises issues on whether the officers have abused their authority in the past toward ethnic minorities and the gay population.

The ugly messages were uncovered during a federal corruption investigation.
