   Introductory note: I learned from William Singletary's wife, Jeannette, that he died this morning. Bill was a courageous man who lived fighting to make the truth known that Mumia is innocent in the shooting death of police officer Daniel Faulkner. For that Bill suffered severe personal and financial consequences. I've known Bill since June 1990 when he came forward with his eyewitness testimony for Mumia and as a witness at the PCRA hearing…

Good day all, sad day with the shootings across the country. But further investigation shows there are many , many more incidents of mass murders.This is a long naritive , the statements are very incorrect....WHY , REPORT INCORRECT MASS SHOOTINGS OR KILLINGS, ON AMERICA SOIL.Between 1824 and 1951 there were over 300 events classified as “White Race Riots” in which entire white communities turned on and destroyed entire Black communities and murdered Blacks in mass. There were 26 such major events and hundreds of smaller ones in major cities and towns across the US during the summer of 1919 alone. This period has been tagged by historians as “The Red Summer of 1919”, because many of the events happened from May to October of that year and the blood of their victims literally painted the streets of America.That year, tens of thousands of Black Americans were killed, maimed and 375,000 were made refugees, though never being given refugee status, all for economic, social, political and other reasons both real and imaginary. They even killed Blacks for recreation activities in rural areas in events called "Friday Night Boot Burnings" (the burning of a Black man at a stake or bonfire) or " Picnic" (a slang term for pick a nigger for lynching} Lynching became a common weekly event to kill the monotony of rural life. It was not uncommon for whites to eat, drink, dance and sing church songs as they created a sadistic festive atmosphere, while their victims suffered from torture. White men, men women and children all participated in what was best described by Ida B. Wells-Barnett as " An orgy of murder and mayhem."GO HERE TO READ FULL ARTICLE, THIS IS WHY INDEPENDENT MEDIA IS IMPORTANT , SUPPORT US. involved in other riots between 1917 and 1923, recalled the horrors of the East St. Louis race riot, in which 250 to 700 Blacks (or more) were massacred in the most gruesome fashion, dared to fight back. They decided it was better to fight a good losing battle, than to die like rats in a barrel. Blacks armed themselves in mass in order to defend themselves. Not to initiate attacks on whites. Blacks across the nation refused to disarm themselves when requested to do so by law enforcement and conveyed to whites, that they are ready to maintain and use arms, whether the whites liked it or not, if threatened. If such an event occurred today, Blacks would be sufficiently unarmed because of past and current gun control laws, that were enacted specifically to disarm them. We would be virtually caught like deer in the head lights. FULL ARTICLE HERE
