Black doctor tapes man using car to block gate to her home community

Nnenna Aguocha lives in a gated townhouse community in Buckhead, Atlanta. That’s a pretty wealthy area, and Aguocha is a doctor. According to Aguocha, she was coming home after an overnight shift when a man, in a SUV ahead of her, stopped his car at the entrance of her gated community, put on his hazard blinkers, and proceeded to exclaim that he was stopping Aguocha from entering.    «He got out of the car and threatened to call the police on me because I was trespassing,» she said in the video recording taken at the scene. «This is racial profiling at its finest.» He called the police and so did Aguocha, who used her key fob to open the gate in front of the police. Some of the video of the incident can be watched below, as Aguocha recorded a lot of the 30-minute harassment on her phone.  When this altercation was going on, what went through my mind was this guy could do absolutely anything to me. He could shoot me dead on the spot because he was “trying to protect the neighborhood” and the property and people would make up stories later. That feeling, based in a very well-documented reality, is one of the terrorisms of racial profiling. A white supremacist system works because everyone knows the deal—even if they aren’t consciously thinking about it. They size up a situation and know that the state will protect them over someone else, will believe them over someone else; they know that the state is there to protect them from people like that. According to 11Alive, the man who decided to wield his powers of racism doesn’t actually live in that gated community. He’s a townhouse owner.

Open thread for night owls: Poor People's Campaign rallies in DC, preps for next phase of its push

At Common Dreams, Andrea Germanos writes—Take Away Our Poverty, Not Our Children!': Poor People's Campaign Caps Off 40 Days of Action: Thousands of people gathered in Washington, D.C. on Saturday where the Poor People's Campaign capped off 40 days of action with a rally and march to further energize its call for a «moral revival» and intention to «move forward together, not one step back.» Twin banners declaring «Fight Poverty Not the Poor» flanked the stage, where rousing speeches by noted figures including Rev. William Barber, Rev. Jesse Jackson, American Federation of Teachers leader Randi Weingarten, as well as others on the front-lines of the fight for justice—and those who amplify their voices—drew cheers. «We are sick, we are homeless, we are separated from our families, and we will keep coming back until everyone has housing, voting rights, clean water, peace, and justice!» said Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, who, along with Rev. Barber, co-chairs the campaign, which launched May 13. [...] The campaign, which channels the effort by the same name Martin Luther King Jr. organized 50 years ago, boasts backers from a broad range of issues, including Friends of the Earth, Communications Workers of America, and the National LGBTQ Taskforce. That diversity is mirrored in the campaign's demands, which include include full restoration of the Voting Rights Act, enacting universal healthcare, repealing the Republican tax cuts, ending mass incarceration, switching to 100 percent renewable energy, terminating warmongering, and stopping the militarization of communities. Putting a spotlight on the basis for those demands are continuing actions by lawmakers at the state and national level, such voting for a massive military budget, introducing bills to restrict voting rights, calling for greater attacks on the safety net, and erasing environmental and public health safeguards. xWe stand with thousands of civil rights, social justice, religious and moral leaders and advocates in Washington, D.C. for the #PoorPeoplesCampaign. We are carrying forth the legacy of MLK and recommit ourselves to building a more equal and just society. pic.twitter.com/BWsL6ipWmn— Lawyers' Committee (@LawyersComm) June 23, 2018 Indivisible’s list of Resistance Events & Groups TOP COMMENTS • HIGH IMPACT STORIES TWEET OF THE DAY xFormer Chinese official/diplomat met with today said, «Every country thinks America has gone crazy. We benefit by doing nothing, other than appearing sane.»— Micah Zenko (@MicahZenko) June 22, 2018 BLAST FROM THE PAST On this date at Daily Kos in 2006—Oops: So Senate and the House Republicans seem pretty united that a time table for withdrawal of our men and women from Bush's Iraqi quagmire would be a bad idea. Why, it would be a sell out, bordering on treasonous assistance to the terrorists and an insult to the casualties of Bush's war. Bully for them, and as the traditional media reports in breathless glowing detail, that's a sign of strength. By golly those republicans are going to turn a major liability into a political advantage under the exceptional tutelage of Master Karl Rove: Link--The U.S. House has voted in favor of not setting a timetable for troops to be removed from Iraq. After the vote, West Michigan Congressman, Pete Hoekstra, appeared on Fox News Channel to talk about the difference between the Democrats and the Republicans in their views on the war. And the DoD has signed right on the dotted line: Rumsfeld: Iraq Timetable wouldn't 'do any good':--As for a timetable for troop withdrawal, Rumsfeld said that timetables are often wrong. «Once you start doing that, then you are stuck with a number and a date, and it just doesn't do any good,» he said. Oops: Link--The Iraq government is planning to offer an amnesty to Sunni insurgents as part of a comprehensive peace package that authorities hope will ward off civil war. The Government will also offer a timetable for American troop withdrawal, stop US operations targeting insurgents, and clamp down on violations of human rights abuses, according to a 28-page deal reported by the Times. Such moves are likely to raise serious concerns in Washington, which has so far steadfastly refused to name a date for scaling down its presence in Iraq, and will not want its personnel under Iraqi jurisdiction.
