Ohio driver John Felton was tailed by police after making Direct Eye Contact with an officer. aka SS/SA

Strong Afro American Males are all too familiar with being marked as being out of one's place, targeted as a threat, denied promotion or fired because the others will realize they are humans worthy of respect.

I remembered being told in the Military, you have to much power. This was not due to the level of rank one held, their complaint was related to what's called informal power, better know as Respect. An Afro American that's independent and skilled is seen as one that rejects subjugation aka a Threat. We all know Rank is formally Given, conversely; Respect is Earned. The following statement is key as to why innocent Afro Americans are being Terrorized, Murdered, denied constitutional rights and subjugated across nation.
"You made direct eye contact with me and held onto it when I was passing you," the officer told Fenton.
To a dictator, Knowledgeable Humans and Independence are a threat to his rule. He sees their independence and ability to think as cause for the others to follow, seek and expect more. This mindset in institutionalized across the United States, it's a fact of life. Unfortunately, like one stricken with Stockholm Syndrome, a large number of Afro Americans unconsciously allow such policies to propagate.

Afro America, clearly it's time for a different approach, the enemy has infiltrated the ranks and compromised the old playbook. If Afro American continue this path, you'll be relics of museums like the brothers of  the Zulu Nation, Egypt, Angkor Wat, and the many spoken of in Ancient Texts.

This Black Driver's Mistake Was Looking a Police Officer in the Eye

Felton wanted to know, had the officer decided to follow him in the first place? That’s when the stop went from being an ordinary illustration of racial profiling to an extraordinary one."You made direct eye contact with me and held onto it when I was passing you," the officer told Fenton. The implication was that Fenton had marked himself as a suspicious character simply by looking at the officer.

During a eulogy, the Rev. Jamal Bryant to say the following to Gray’s mother:
" On April 12 at 8:39 in the morning, four officers on bicycles saw your son. And your son, in a subtlety of revolutionary stance, did something black men were trained to know not to do. He looked police in the eye. And when he looked the police in the eye, they knew that there was a threat, because they're used to black men with their head bowed down low, with their spirit broken. He was a threat simply because he was man enough to look somebody in authority in the eye. I want to tell this grieving mother ... you are not burying a boy, you are burying a grown man. He knew that one of the principles of being a man is looking somebody in the eye." - The Root

AfrocatioN Insight: US Air Force commander prevented a spy plane from crashing

As a former Aerospace expert, upon seeing the location of the damage, the following immediately came to mind.
"Investigators were unable to determine the fire’s ignition source but found that it was fanned by a faulty oxygen system that had been improperly serviced during the airplane’s last depot maintenance by L-3 Communications in Greenville, Texas.
The final report noted that L-3’s quality control failed to follow established procedures, and that L-3 installed used instead of new parts. Fleet-wide inspections are underway." - Business Insider
This event like many reminded me of a similar event in Japan. A C-9 wheel failed on landing due to a defense contractor supplying old instead of new parts.

What Are the Stock Traders Yelling, Janet Yellen that is: China Rate Cut Whipsaws Stocks After Biggest Selloff Since 1996

The Federal Reserve Rate hike is what the Stock Market sell-off is really about. After years of interest free money and prodding Yellen not to raise rates, the big investors are not going out without a fight.

The Battle has begun, sit back an watch who blinks. The Fed or the Big banks and Institutional Investors who truly move Markets?

Keep in Mind there's a Trade Deficit between the US and China. The US on the Deficit end with less than 2% of GDP exports to China. Knowing this, clearly the primary concern for the US is not the Chinese stock market. Like Russia, a devalued China is more manageable than one of Geo-economic value.

Police, Mordern Day Nazi SA/SS, aka White Citizens' Councils: Boston Police Arrested Man for yelling Obscenities towards their actions (Video) |

For People of Color especially Afro Americans, Police in cities across the nation are tantamount to the Nazi's Storm Trooper, SS and Plantation Overseers. Giving the wealth of available evidence it's clear such practices are instituted and actively implemented across the nation. Just think, any plain cloth white man  can walk up an attack any citizen of color as illustrated in this video and Ferguson (Oath Keepers).

Like the SA, WCC and SSC, these individuals
  1. Proclaim they are an instrument of law,  
  2. Nullify the citizens constitutional rights by declaring them a Thug aka criminal and 
  3. Assassinate said Citizen if  s/he doesn't commit to his dominance aka servitude.
  4. The courts overwhelmingly doesn't convict such actions cause an Armed Bully proclaimed he feared for his life from the Unarmed Victim  

Like Ice Cube said, it's time for Afro American to arm themselves in defense of their life and constitutional rights. A xenophobic bully only understands opposing force.
SA (Sturmabteilung or Storm Troopers):
Also known as "Brown Shirts," they were the Nazi party's main instrument for undermining democracy and facilitating Adolf Hitler's rise to power. The SA was the predominant terrorizing arm of the Nazi party.
Citizens' Councils aka White Citizens' Councils
On July 11, 1954, the White Citizens Council, with Robert Patterson of Indianola as leader, was formed. Primarily made up of plantation owners, bankers, doctors, lawyers, legislators, preachers, teachers, and merchants, this organization sought to prevent the implementation of the Brown decision. Unlike the Ku Klux Klan, this organization "publicly" renounced the use of violence. Nevertheless, its actions often encouraged white violence against blacks. While there were occasions when members of the group employed violence, the Council's real success lay in its ability to levy economic reprisals on those who supported and actively pushed for desegregation. Indeed, the WCC was so successful that it was more than ten years after the Brown decision before any significant desegregation occurred in Mississippi. -
Mississippi State Sovereignty Commission
The Mississippi State Sovereignty Commission (Commission) was created by an act of the Mississippi legislature on March 29, 1956. The agency was established in the White Millsaps students marching in protest of death of JSU
student Ben Brownwake of the May 1954 Brown v. Board of Education ruling.
  1. The Commission's objective was to "do and perform any and all acts deemed necessary and proper to protect the sovereignty of the state of Mississippi, and her sister states . . ." from perceived "encroachment thereon by the Federal Government or any branch, department or agency thereof." To exercise this loosely defined objective, the Commission was granted extensive investigative powers. 
  2. The Commission compared itself to the FBI and the armed services intelligence agencies, "during times of war seeking out intelligence information about the enemy and what the enemy proposes to do."
  3. The Commission investigated individuals and organizations that challenged the racial status quo. Commission investigators toured the state and compiled reports on civil rights activities in the counties. They also responded to specific requests from local state officials and members of the public
  4. In 1960 the Commission voted a grant for $20,000 to the "Council Forum." From this point until December 1964, the Commission documented monthly grants to the Citizens' Council amounting to a total of $193,500.7 The Commission also participated in the national campaign to prevent the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act,
  5. In addition, the agency donated small amounts to African-American individuals and organizations sympathetic to segregation.
  6. ...In 1965, the Commission developed and promoted the Mississippi Negro Citizenship Association. Through this organization the Commission "launched a quiet campaign to encourage qualified Negroes to make applications to vote," hoping to outmaneuver the Council of Federated Organizations (COFO) by attracting those they termed the "thinking Negroes of Mississippi.

The Trade Deficit is Responsible for Manufacturing Job Loss | Economic Policy Institute

 "A rising trade deficit indicates that U.S. manufacturers are losing business to manufacturing industries in other countries like China and Japan, who manipulate their currency to make their goods cheaper and therefore more appealing to consumers in the United States and elsewhere. This leads to reduced demand for goods produced by U.S. manufacturers, both at home and abroad." | Economic Policy Institute

Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations, U.S. Growth Version | Economic Policy Institute

Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations, U.S. Growth Version | Economic Policy Institute
 "Why does all this matter? Well, because we know that a portfolio of policy changes starting in the late 1970s contributed strongly to the rise in inequality and the near-stagnation of typical Americans’ hourly pay. And we know that this rise in inequality was the predictable outcome of these policies. But these policies are defended by their proponents as having been necessary to spur growth, distribution be damned. And yet these policies have failed really badly—growth in the post-1979 period has been a lot slower than before—leaving us with less growth and more inequality. Too many defenders then fall back on reasons why this growth would have collapsed post-1979 anyhow—and hysteria about international competition is a big part of this fall-back argument. And it’s just flat-wrong." | Economic Policy Institute

Moskovitz: Tech Industry 'destroying personal lives' and Jan Mickelson: Enslave Undocumented statements have a lot in common, "Let them Eat Cake"

AfocatioN's perspective is that the major driver of the cutthroat work culture is clearly illustrated in the Do More With Less, Free Labor Mentality. With the vast majority of corporate profits going to shareholders, the peasants are forced to fight for the crumbs. It stands to conclude the elites "Let them Eat Cake" mentality illustrate the obliviousness and selfishness of the  the current American Upper class and white Privileged.
"After 1973, productivity grew strongly, especially after 1995, while the typical worker’s compensation was relatively stagnant. This divergence of pay and productivity has meant that many workers were not benefiting from productivity growth—the economy could afford higher pay but it was not providing it." | Economic Policy Institute
The nations racist practices towards integration of non-whites into the workforce is a key factor missing from the various studies. The enactment of laws providing people of color rights as citizens was a major catalyst for this divergence. With people of color afforded greater rights the nation thirst for free and cheap labor is manifested in demands for longer work hours and a reduction in compensation. Typically the privileged class perpetuate this by blaming Affirmative Action and similar laws that ensure citizens are afforded opportunity based on their ability. Let this be clear, Color as a Stigma is a business model systematically instituted by the state, instilled into privileged and manifested in the form of hate .

Lincoln expressed the following in his private papers:
 “If A can prove… that he may, of right, enslave B.—why may not B snatch the same argument, and prove equally, that he may enslave A? –You say A. is white, and B. is black. It is color, then; the lighter having the right to enslave the darker? Take care. By this rule, you are to be slave to the first man you meet, with a fairer skin than your own. You do not mean color exactly? –You mean the whites are intellectually the superiors of the blacks, and therefore have the right to enslave them? Take care again. By this rule, you are to be slave to the first man you meet, with an intellect superior to your own. But, say you, it is a question of interest; and if you can make it your interest, you have the right to enslave another. Very  well. And if he can make it his interest, he has the right to enslave you.”
Bush like host of current slate of Nero-Republican Presidential candidates see themselves as superior with a perceived mandate to take back the country aka enslave others. Trump's dictatorial rise as a viable candidate based his perceived wealth and expressions of hate is supported by Jan Mickelson statement to enslave people if they don't leave the country.

A thought provoking two part interview and one all Afro American must and should watch. Brother Mike is on point with his assessment of Afro Americans excessive preponderance towards forgiveness when besieged with systemic systematic institutionalized violence and injustice from the so called ruling class. As Mike intimated, other races and religious groups who suffered injustice are afforded compensation in the form of a Country, Security and technological advancement while Afro Americans are required to apologize for brutality inflicted upon them and chastised for demanding accountability and compensation to overcome such injustices.
