A coroner in New York ruled that the death of Eric Garner was murder when they used the chokehold on him for allegedly selling cigarettes. I watched the news as Garner told the police that he was not doing anything wrong, and later after the NYPD grabbed him by the neck, he told them, over and over, that he couldn't breathe. I once heard someone say, "If anyone tells you something believe them." Eric Garner, was a father, a husband, and an American citizen. The New York Police Department officers either didn't believe him or they believed that he shouldn't breath. He died at their hands.

Talk of impeaching President Barack Obama has reached a fever pitch in Republican circles. That would leave Joseph Biden in the lead for the Democratic nomination for the Presidency in the 2016 election, instead of Hilliary Clinton. The Republicans are looking at the long-term political picture, rather than short term.

One month after a federal settlement awarded one million dollars in the Pasadena McDade shooting case, a video of an LAPD officer has been shown on a video kicking a Latino woman. The kicking occurred in a Van Nuys jail holding cell. His partner joined in the abusive force actions. In another case of excessive force, an African American woman was beaten by a Highway patrolman on the side of a highway.

When my wife and I visited Detroit, Michigan some months ago for a former Pastor's wife's memorial services, we were not aware of the real economic condition of Detroit's Black community. We now know than for young entrepreneurial students and practitioners, Detroit provides opportunities galore.

As America nears the end of the Obama years, there are those who just won't let go of their hatred of him. In my opinion, their hatred of him is based solely on his race and his African American heritage. The Tea Party haters have taken the lead in demonstrating hate against Obama. One big hatred is by governors of states who refuse federal dollars to help the citizens in their states get free health care through Medicaid for the underprivileged. It's hard to keep track of the laws that are anti-Obama but approximately one half of the states are saying no to free federal dollars for health care under Medicaid.
