When a white teenager named Steve Lohner was stopped by the police last month and refused to show his ID after carrying a loaded shotgun on the streets of Aurora, Colorado (the same city where a mass murderer killed 12 people and injured 70 others in a packed movie theater in July 2012), the teen walked away with nothing but a citation.

But when a 22-year-old black kid named John Crawford picked up a mere BB gun in a Walmart store in Dayton, Ohio last week, customers called the police, who then shot and killed him.

Here lies a racial disparity that’s difficult for honest people to ignore. How can black people openly carry a real gun when we can’t even pick up a BB gun in a store without arousing suspicion? The answer in America is that the Second Amendment doesn’t really apply to black people.

True, anyone who’s been paying attention knows this. The only time you can get gun control passed in this country is when politicians start seeing POC walking around freely with guns.

My tolerance for ppl has been nonexistent lately. I literally don’t give a fuck. You do or say ignorant shit and I’m chucking deuces. My life is too stressful to be dealing with any bullshit that I don’t have to. Off or online.

Why don’t white people understand the cracker is not the equivalent of Nigger.

white people wanna talk about “respecting the dead” and “remembering them for the good they’ve done” until a black person gets killed and suddenly every bad thing from their past justifies murder

Police in Ohio have charged a former Navy SEAL after discovering “overwhelming evidence” that he lied when he said three black men shouted obscenities at him, and then shot him in the stomach.

Chris Heben, a 44-year-old former Navy SEAL who served from 1996 through 2006, told police in Bath Township that he was almost hit by a low-profile sports car in a grocery store parking lot in Akron on March 28. He said that there were three black men in the car, and that they shouted obscenities at him.

Heben claimed that he went into the Mustard Seed grocery store, but returned to his car because he forgot his wallet.

That’s when one of the men in the same caryelled, “You got a big mouth white boy. You need to learn some f*cking respect,” and then shot him in the abdomen.

According to Heben’s story, he plugged the bullet hole, and tried to chase the men down in his car until he began to lose consciousness. So, he stopped at a fire station for help.

Heben’s incredible story scored him interviews with national media outlets like CNN and Fox News, and turned him into a local hero, boosting his profile as aspokesperson for the Montrose Auto Group.

But on Wednesday, Bath Township police said that most of Heben’s story was a lie,WEWS reported.

“We have overwhelming evidence based upon video, cell phone records and interviews that the shooting did not occur in the West Market Plaza and that Mr. Heben made false allegations to us,” Bath Township Police Chief Mike McNeely explained.

McNeely said that only Heben could answer when and how he was shot.

Heben could spend up to 180 days in jail for communicating false information to police, a first-degree misdemeanor. He was also charged with a second-degree misdemeanor for obstructing official police business.

WKYC reported that Heben has a previous conviction for “three counts of forgery related to perscriptions of controlled substances.”

How many black men were harassed as they looked for the perpetrators? And how many outlets will do follow ups to set the record straight?

^^^^^^great questions! damn!!! this is why black people stay mad. this fool probably got shot by his white drug dealer or his wife or girlfriend did that to him. always using black people to cover their own evilness.

Remember when Susan Smith murdered her kids by strapping them in the back seat of her car and driving the car into a river then said a black man did it? Someone almost went to jail for that shit.

"For almost 1,000 years, the Rabari have roamed the deserts and plains of what is today western India. It is believed that this tribe, with a peculiar Persian physiognomy, migrated from the Iranian plateau more than a millennium ago. The Rabari are now found largely in Gujarat and Rajasthan.”
