12/1 Ferguson & The Crisis of Police Violence Against Black Men

December 1, 2014

The terror of being a black male in America, protesters rally at the Macy’s Day Parade, local news covers the protest in the most stupid way possible, the Obama Cabinet meets on Ferguson, Saint Louis Rams players go out on the field with the “hands up don’t shoot” gesture, Cops complain. We ask what part of right wing media will Darren Wilson end up in? Breaking down how absurd it is that Wilson wasn’t charged with murder.  Cleveland Police shoot and kill thirteen year old Tamir Brown who was holding a toy gun. Rudy Giuliani wants us to put all of this killing “into context”. Congress considers an awful tax deal and the White House kills it. Chuck Schumer is right on government, wrong on healthcare and shady on housing.

On The Fun Half: is New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s right to ban Horse drawn carriage rides in the city? Elizabeth Lauten fired from her job as a Communications Director for Congressman Steven Fincher fired for insulting Malia and Sasha Obama. Why wages are wages stagnate while job growth is increasing? and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
