Despite being more associated with gangster rap music and a high-murder rate in the past, Compton was and still remains a cowboy town.
 
Indeed, the town’s gang war prompted the founding of the Compton Jr. Posse which provides equestrian training and other activities for young children, to keep them from joining a life of crime.
 
The California town’s horse riding credentials are more apparent on the weekends when on major thoroughfares you’re likely to find someone like Ivory McCloud decked out in his cowboy boots and hat, proudly riding his horse.
 
‘I’ve got 40 years in this, man,’ the 56-year-old horseman says exuberantly. ‘My dad was a cowboy. I’m a cowboy. I grew up in Compton. I live in Compton, and I’ve been training horses since I was a kid.’
 
He trains Tennessee Walkers, high-gait show horses, in the backyard of his home. But it’s Diamond, his prized blue-eyed Palomino that he proudly rides in parades and rodeos whenever he can. And along the streets of his hometown.

Violent crime, meanwhile, is down in Compton compared with what it once was, although locals will tell you there are still neighborhoods you’d best stay out of.

#BlackLivesMatter | False charges of racism, Charlotte is burning, and more

Smearing the South with false charges of racism
By James D. Agresti | 20 Sept 2016
 
Blunt accusations of racism have become a common feature of public discourse over the past few years. With this, the views of both whites and blacks about the state of race relations in America have sunk to the lowest levels they have ever been since Gallup began polling on this issue in 2001.
Beyond claims that specific individuals are “racist,” certain media outlets, activists, and politicians have leveled this charge at broad groups of Americans. For example:
• The editorial board has declared that “many” of the nation’s 900,000 “police officers see black men as expendable figures on the urban landscape, not quite human beings.”
• Hillary Clinton recently stated that “half” of Donald Trump’s supporters are a “basket of deplorables” who are “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it.” She later walked this back a little by writing that she regrets saying “half.”
• The official website of #BlackLivesMatter contends that “virulent anti-Black racism … permeates our society.”
Such claims frequently conflict with documented facts about race and violence, the use of lethal force by police, and the nature of racial income disparities. Hence, false allegations of racism can often be thoughtfully dismissed by rational and informed people.

Charlotte Burning
By Matthew Vadum | September 22, 2016

Soros-funded Black Lives Matter inflicts its terror in a sleepy Southern city.

Black Lives Matter rioters claiming systemic racial discrimination is killing black people have laid siege to largely black Charlotte, North Carolina, after a black cop who reports to a black police chief shot and killed a black suspect who reportedly refused to drop his handgun.

#BlackLivesMatter | The REAL reason for Charlotte riots

WND
By Mychal Massie | 26 Sept 2016

Mychal Massie says ‘social injustice’ has nothing to do with the violence

 
charlotte-2-620x384

The smoke and stench of destruction by blacks with no sense of moral propriety rising in the air over Charlotte-Mecklenburg, North Carolina, can be seen for miles. The images of the violence they have perpetrated and the appalling screeds that flowed from their mouths like a severe case of encopresis have been broadcast worldwide.
 
The abhorrent barbarism that has shaken Charlotte is being attributed to the police shooting and killing of Keith Lamont Scott. But that is the red herring used to silence truthful criticism and justify animalistic behavior. It may have been a secret to the rest of America, but it was no secret to those in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area that Scott had a two-decade-long history of gun violence, which included the shooting at police officers in Texas. But as is typical in instances like this, the most violent of offender is immediately heralded to be worthy of sainthood, their lengthy criminal histories notwithstanding.
 
The riots, which where in large part free shopping sprees, were not about justice; if they had been about justice, the rioters would have helped police get Scott off the streets long before he signed his own death warrant by disobeying commands by police to drop the gun he was brandishing. It should also be noted that Scott was breaking the law having the gun because legally he could not purchase and carry a firearm with his criminal history – which means he had to have purchased the firearm illegally from another street thug. But I digress.
 
The shooting of Scott was the excuse used to promote violence and racist vitriol by blacks. The late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, D-N.Y.. once said: “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.” That observation segues perfectly to Moynihan’s profoundly insightful observation:

Keith Scott was carrying a stolen gun when he was shot and killed during a confrontation with police in Charlotte, North Carolina, authorities have said.
 
The gun was reported stolen after a breaking and entering, according to the police.
 
A breaking and entering suspect told agents at the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives that he had sold the gun to Scott, ABC 11 reported Monday. He is now in custody.
 
Scott’s wife Rakeyia, who filmed her husband’s killing on Tuesday, had filed for a restraining order against him and had told authorities he carried a gun, hit her as well as one of her children and had threatened to kill her, records have shown.
 
Rakeyia detailed her husband’s behavior in the filing in October last year. She said he had hit her and one of her children.
 
‘He hit my 8 year old in the head a total of three times with is [sic] fist,’ she wrote on the form published by TWC News.
 
‘He kicked me and threaten [sic] to kill us last night with his gun. He said he is a “killer” and we should know that.’

Obama: ‘Very Hard To Find An Area Where We’re Not Better Off Than We Were Before’
By Kerry Picket | 18 Sept 2016
“It’s very hard to find an area where we’re not better off than we were before,” President Obama said, making no mention of Saturday’s explosion in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood, as per the White House pool report. President Obama also made no mention of the bombing in New Jersey or stabbing attack in Minnesota.
 
1,063 Documented Examples of Barack Obama’s Lying, Lawbreaking, Corruption, Cronyism, Hypocrisy, Waste, Etc.
Every President, every politician, and every human being tells lies and engages in acts of hypocrisy. But Barack Obama does these things to a far greater degree than anyone else that I have ever known of. His campaign promises were so much better sounding than anyone else’s – no lobbyists in his administration, waiting five days before signing all non-emergency bills so people would have time to read them, putting health care negotiations on C-SPAN, reading every bill line by line to make sure money isn’t being wasted, prosecution of Wall St. criminals, ending raids against medical marijuana in states where it’s legal, high levels of transparency. Obama’s promises of these wonderful things sounded inspiring and sincere. They sounded so much better than the promises of any other President. So when Obama broke these promises, it felt so much worse than when other Presidents broke their promises.

#BlackLivesMatter | ‘Hate and violence won’t fix the damage, only love can do that’: Activist attempts to broker peace with free hugs for all after Charlotte riots

As Charlotte saw a second night of riots, one man attempted to broker peace in the community by offering free hugs to all.

Ken Nwadike, of the Free Hugs Project, headed to North Carolina on Wednesday night to try to resolve tensions with love, rather than hate.

A video of Nwadike, who is black, hugging police officers in riot gear – both black and white – has gone viral, amassing more than 13million views in less than 12 hours.

While some protesters welcomed the activist’s peaceful approach, the eight-minute clip also captured the hostility he faced from others who hurled abuse at him for embracing cops.

‘I think that people are hurting and I understand that. It’s very tough for them to see a black man hugging police officers,’ he told CNN.

But he added: ‘I don’t see it as us versus them. It’s very important for us to be able to spread love to one another.

If you’re one of those people who hates mornings, this sweet video is here to change your mind.
 
Ron Alston and his three-year-old daughter Aliya recently became internet famous for their inspiring morning routine. Every day before Aliya goes to school, the pair face the mirror and recite a mantra that’s so powerful, it might make you tear up.
 
Repeating after her father, the adorable toddler says:

I am strong. I am smart. I work hard. I am beautiful. I am respectful. I’m not better than anyone. Nobody’s better than me. I am amazing. I am great.

The mantra then continues with some questions from dad:

“If you fall?” he asks. “I get back up,” she proudly replies
“What are you?” he asks, ending the mantra. “I’m blessed.”

They messed with the wrong pizza boy! Robbers’ mugging scheme goes awry when delivery is made by 250lb ex-NFL linebacker who fights off all four of them

Four robbers who plotted to mug a pizza boy after ordering a delivery to an unoccupied house found their plans coming undone when a 250lb former linebacker turned up with the pie.
 
Napoleon Harris III, the six-foot-three-inch Illinois Senator and former Minnesota Vikings linebacker, was in a Chicago Beggars Pizza franchise he owns when a call came in at the last minute on September 6.
 
He decided to run the pizza in himself – and ended up serving up some rough justice instead, CBS 2 reported.
 
Harris had offered to deliver the pizza because his crew was ‘overwhelmed’ – and as the robbers were about to learn, Harris is a tough guy to overwhelm.
 
He arrived at the house, on the 15800 block of Paulina Avenue in Harvey around three miles his pizza parlor, to find one of the robbers on the porch.
 
As Harris entered the property, though, three others sprang from the bushes in the front yard and attempted to overwhelm him. They failed. Dramatically.
