Study: Oakland Cops Are Racists:  The scholars at Stanford have proven what the media, Black Lives Matter and Eric Holder have known all along, the police are racists.  Heather MacDonald has this piece in the City Journal about the study performed by psychologists, linguists, and computer scientists which suggests that Oakland police treat black drivers less respectfully than white ones. The study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, was well received by journalists at The Washington Post, the New York Times, and Science.  Lead researcher Jennifer Eberhardt, is a Stanford psychology professor,  who specializes in implicit bias, the idea that nearly everyone approaches allegedly disfavored groups with unconscious prejudice. 

7th Circuit Overturns Death Sentence:  The death sentence of a triple-murderer was overturned Friday in a ruling from the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.  Jonathan Stempel of Reuters reports that the court found that the "stun belt" worn by the defendant, to help control him, contaminated the penalty phase and likely prejudiced the jury.  While the belt was not visible to jurors, a box on the belt containing wiring, while hidden under murderer John Stephenson's shirt, caused a visible bulge.  Stephenson was convicted and sentenced to death for the 1996 murders of two men and a woman who were in a pickup truck.  A witness testified that Stephenson had fired multiple rounds into the truck with his assault rifle, then stabbed the three victims with a knife.  The state has not indicated whether it will seek the death penalty at Stephenson's new sentencing hearing.     


Study: Both American Atheists & Democrats Are Selfish/Ungenerous:

[Study: Red states more Charitable, but Religion more a Factor than Wealth]
August 20, 2012 · Fox News

Residents in Republican-leaning states give more of their money to charity
than those in Democrat-leaning states, according to a new study.

The Chronicle of Philanthropy's study released this week found ...

The 8 top charitable states were Utah, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, Idaho, Arkansas and Georgia, as reported first by The Politico.
On the other end of the spectrum were Wisconsin, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire.

And don't assume the biggest givers were the wealthier states. Mississippi
and Idaho rank among the lowest in the country in per-capita income.

“Regions of the country that are deeply religious are more generous
than those that are not,”
the study's authors said.

Two of the top nine states -- Utah and Idaho -- have high numbers of Mormon residents .. And the remaining states in the top nine are in the Bible Belt,
the study found.


Sirius XM Progressive Director: Democrats are Racist

Writing in Cosmopolitan, a black woman named Zerlina Maxwell, Director
of Progressive Programming for Sirius XM and a fervent supporter of
Sen. Kamala Harris, rages:

--> “Kamala Harris doesn’t have a Bernie Sanders problem. The so-called
‘Sanders Left’ has a black-woman problem.”

--> "Black women are not Jesus. It’s not right to expect us to fix what
white Americans are so committed to breaking."

--> "A group of black women wrote an open letter to DNC Chairman
Tom Perez requesting that he meet with black women politicians ..
The DNC refused to even give black women an official response
to the letter."

--> "I say this, because I want to be clear that the DNC is no friend
to black women."
