Hundreds Protest Police Shooting of Another Gentle Unarmed Black Man in California
Ezell Ford, 25, was killed by police in Los Angeles on Monday, two days after 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot dead by a police officer in the St. Louis suburb where he lived.

"He was a humble guy," said Ford's cousin, Ceebo Ship, 22.

Ship and other family members said Ford suffered from an unspecified mental illness and was "slower than the rest of us," and a gentle person who loved basketball.

Itís not clear what Ford was doing. Ford had a history of mental illness and had been convicted of marijuana possession and illegal possession of a loaded firearm. In January, he was put on probation for trespassing in Long Beach. But thereís not yet information about what he was doing wrong, if anything. And itís not yet clear why he was stopped by police.

What is clear: After he was stopped, Ford was killed, shot by two members of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Depends. Not that many blacks left in the LA area. I will give Hispanics credit, they chased them out. That, and they usually keep to their own regional territory.

Hispanics took over a small, nearby city. They stay there, they don't go traveling around, they don't try to be a nuisance or get off on making the locals uncomfortable. Granted, it still sucks they stole the city region, and the preferential treatment they get(which is largely undeserved).

Blacks? They don't find a neighborhood of other blacks and buy a home there. They seek out the "whitest area they can afford", because they view "white communities as real communities", as "status symbols". They love to go around, and try to make "white people", as uncomfortable as they can.

It is amusing to see the look on the Hispanic's faces. In a sick kind of way. When they found this area(thanks to some A-hole putting advertisements in their communities in NY*), they thought it was "some magical little land". We the locals, where foolish, and kind. We tried to be kind thinking it was just a few. That few turned into many because everyone said "how great this area is, homes are cheap, and the people are nice".

Anyways, seeing them look at all the blacks.. Once we leave, there is going to be a huge blood bath in this region. The only reason, blacks are able to "pretend to be white", is because this region is made up of,or used to be made up of "the nicest people, with alot of gun's, and a quick trigger." The Hispac's, are kind of in a state of "shock/learned helplessness".

There is an odd uneasy peace in their conduct with one another. As for the locals? Alot of "for sale signs", are going up. When we leave(I guess the blacks where the final straw, and everyone reached the same decision to different degrees, at the same time. There was no group meeting.)

This time next year, I wouldn't be surprised if 50-75% of the school districts Caucasians moved. So without the psychological fear of the local Caucasian's, the Hispanic's and blacks, are going to go nuts and kill each other.


*Some dickhead, put a sign up in NYC a decade ago-ish, off of a major road, saying "what a great place to live", about the community I live in, which is 3 hours from NYC.

The problem is, there are many, suspects.

First, and most comically(to some).

The Jew's done it! Or in particular the Hasdric Jew's. The Hasdric's, where facing harassment from their school District in NY, and wanted to move to the area, because we are way more tolerant(guess they visited the area and liked it). They wanted to buy land, to build a private commune, or neighborhood enclave or something.

The Mayor, and City Counsel(who where deeply Roman Catholic, and some ex mob families), told them no, in such way, it deeply offended them. They could of easily bought a chunk of the city, over time, and setup their own private schools and stuff. So they had to be pretty insulting.

This theory goes, the Hasdrics put the sign up as an act of revenge, poisoning the well so to speak.

Theory 2) The Catholic Church/Mayor/City Counsel

The Catholic Church, used to be pretty big in the area. Every little coal town had atleast 2-3 different Catholic Churches, let alone the city. With my generation, it is just died. Heck, even the city was dying. It was about to lose it's city status. Heck, they might of put the sign up, just to keep the Hasdrics from taking over the city.


The economy was dead, everything was dead. The region became a hospice home of sorts, alot left. We where trying. Built several industrial parks, offered all kinds of sweat heart deals, so there would be jobs for the local's.

Theory 3: Corporations

Locals did demand one thing: a decent, and fair wage. Not a sky high wage, but something fair. When the influx began, many corporations, fired their previous local workers, and replaced them with the new arrivals, and outright refused to employ locals, until a few facilities where on the verge of closure(because of the incompetence of the new arrivals), then they hired enough to keep them running, at far lower wages.

Last Theory: Energy Companies

This area used to be a big coal region. Alot of bad stuff happened, and they closed alot of them down. There is now way, they would of allowed renewed coal mining within city limits, if the city was still majority Caucasian. Heck, they where talking about cleaning the pollution up, to bring in a high tec type economy, before everything went south.

Now? They might even be trying to gain control of the neighboring areas. You see, in my parents generation, they combined all the surrounding areas of the city, into a super large school district(tons of small coal towns, thinking was, could afford more if they pooled their resources together), so now, all the rich people who turned the farm land rural valley, into a rich suburbia, are frantically trying to sell their homes as their kid's approach high school(regional high school, local elementary and middle schools).

There is no private school of note, that could accommodate the kids, as the Catholic Private school system was shut down. So now, it will be possible to frack in the valley soon.

The most comical thing is, the SOB in the middle of it, the former mayor, is now a US House Rep. He ran on an anti illegal position. Every-time when it matters, he votes in favor of amnesty, but when it doesn't matter he votes against it. The thing is, he was a huge supporter, when they first arrived. That is, until rumor has it, his daughter got knocked up by an illegal Dominican. Huge scandal. He became really ticked off at illegals, seen how other people supported his anger at them, and used it to run for Congress. He owns alot of land in the surrounding area(mostly around farm land and suburban housing). he himself, comes from a family that is long rumored to be ex-mob.

The whole situation stinks to high heaven, and it is the greatest riddle I would like solved, "Who put that darn sign up!?".
