Racial identity politics and race based policies benefit the status quo and the self appointed so called leaders.


NAACP has been shilling for the Washington elite incumbent political class intensely telling us over and over again, how Tea Partiers are predominantly a racist bunch.
Their racial identity politics, and defense of race based policies only benefit the status quo. Poor minorities serve mainly as convenient pawns. Her...e's a boomerang video exposing them. Let's see now, will the NAACP and the US Dept of Agriculture (USDA) denounce the racists in their ranks? Will the main stream media that's been pimping the stories about racists and the Tea Party Movement go expose the racists in the NAACP and the USDA?
Why hasn't the NAACP or MAPA or National Council of La Raza done anything about the thives running the City of Bell for that matter? It's 90 percent Latino, and poor.
Here's a news report on NAACP Event and the USDA Official relating her bigoted actions

Botched Paramilitary Police Raids: An Epidemic of "Isolated Incidents"

"If a widespread pattern of [knock-and-announce] violations were shown . . . there would be reason for grave concern." —Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, in Hudson v. Michigan, June 15, 2006. An interactive map of botched SWAT and paramilitary police raids, released in conjunction with the Cato policy paper "Overkill: The Rise of Paramilitary Police Raids," by Radley Balko.

Key

Death of an innocent. Death or injury of a police officer. Death of a nonviolent offender.
Raid on an innocent suspect. Other examples of paramilitary police excess. Unnecessary raids on doctors and sick people.
The proliferation of SWAT teams, police militarization, and the Drug War have given rise to a dramatic increase in the number of "no-knock" or "quick-knock" raids on suspected drug offenders. Because these raids are often conducted based on tips from notoriously unreliable confidential informants, police sometimes conduct SWAT-style raids on the wrong home, or on the homes of nonviolent, misdemeanor drug users. Such highly-volatile, overly confrontational tactics are bad enough when no one is hurt -- it's difficult to imagine the terror an innocent suspect or family faces when a SWAT team mistakenly breaks down their door in the middle of the night. But even more disturbing are the number of times such "wrong door" raids unnecessarily lead to the injury or death of suspects, bystanders, and police officers. Defenders of SWAT teams and paramilitary tactics say such incidents are isolated and rare. The map above aims to refute that notion.
