Black Lives Matter fundraising handled by group with convicted terrorist on its board

The co-founder of Black Lives Matter names a convicted cop killer as one of her heroes, and the BLM national organization is fiscally sponsored through a leftist group whose board of directors includes a convicted terrorist.

Alicia Garza, one of three co-founders of the Black Lives Matter national organization, has repeatedly talked about how convicted cop killer and wanted domestic terrorist Joanne Chesimard, also known as Assata Shakur, is one of her main inspirations. Susan Rosenberg, a member of the board of directors for the left-wing Thousand Currents group, which handles the intake of donations made to Black Lives Matter, is a convicted terrorist who, among other things, was suspected of helping Shakur escape from prison.

Rosenberg, who was listed as the vice chairwoman of the board of directors for Thousand Currents until the webpage was pulled down this week, as first reported by the Capital Research Center, had been a member of the radical leftist revolutionary militant group known as the May 19th Communist Organization, affiliated with the Weather Underground terrorist group and other radicals. She was convicted on weapons and explosives charges and sentenced to 58 years in prison, serving 16 years before being pardoned by President Bill Clinton in January 2001.

Thousand Currents did not return a request for comment.

Black Misandry: Wauwatosa PD sued for detaining black teen mistakenly thought to be carjacking white grandmother

The 18-year-old was handcuffed and detained because officers thought he was carjacking his white grandmother.

The two of them, plus the grandmother’s friend who was also in the car, filed the lawsuit.

In a statement, the department says two people had flagged down officers to point out a carjacking happening nearby.

On squad car dash camera video, the woman can be heard confirming the man in the backseat is her grandson.

The man was held in the back of a squad car for about six minutes.

“I’m guessing what this sounds like is a big misunderstanding,” one of the officers says to him.

Police say the man was detained based on reasonable suspicion.

The lawsuit says it wasn’t reasonable, and that there’s never been proof the officers were flagged down about any carjacking.

The plaintiffs are claiming damages including “severe emotional pain, distress and the loss of enjoyment of life,” among others.

They believe it was a “racially-motivated vehicle stop,” and the man “re-lives that terror every day.”

A witness, Dominique Elliott, recorded cell phone video of the incident.

“They shouldn’t have went that far,” he said. “If you would have seen how surrounded this boy was, and I was just thinking oh my God, I hope they don’t kill him.”

The lawsuit says the Wauwatosa police chief has refused to do a formal investigation of the incident.

Flight testing for Boeing’s 737 Max could begin Monday

Flight-certification testing for Boeing’s 737 Max, which has been grounded since March 2019 because of two deadly crashes, could begin as early as Monday, according to an Federal Aviation Administration email sent Sunday to congressional oversight committees.

The company needs clearance from the FAA before the planes can fly again, and the test flights, with FAA test pilots, are a key step. They would take several days and would evaluate Boeing’s proposed changes to the automated flight control system on the Max.

The flight control system, triggered by faulty readings from sensors, pushed the planes into nosedives that led to crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia, killing 346 people.

Even if no new problems are discovered during the test flights, it’s likely to take at least a month to get pilots trained and get mothballed planes upgraded, inspected and serviced. The FAA has to sign off on Boeing’s pilot-training program, and a panel of international regulators will comment on minimum pilot training too.

Boeing said it deferred to the FAA and global regulators on the Max certification process.

Nearly 400 Max planes had been delivered to airlines before they were grounded, and Boeing has built several hundred more.

Black Misandry: White Hispanic Killed Black Trans Woman, And White LGBT Writer Used Stock Photo Of A Black Man

The white LGBT community has a long history of anti-Black racism. And this racism was on full display this week in relation to a ruthless murder that occurred in Chicago.

This week, white hispanic suspect Orlando Perez told law enforcement he shot Black trans woman Selena Reyes-Hernandez twice in her home, then came back and fired his gun again into her lifeless body.

In an act of shameless deception, white LGBT writer for the news site Insider wrote an article about the murder, and used a stock image of a Black man in handcuffs. This was done to give the impression that a Black man committed the murder.

This cowardly act of deception was also used to push the false narrative orchestrated by the white LGBT community that heterosexual Black men (and the straight Black community as a whole) are killing Black trans people, because of some inherent “transphobia” in Black society.

The white LGBT uses this false narrative to deflect away from talk of white supremacy, so they can instead focus on what they claim is comparative “bigotry” coming from Black society against Black trans people.
