So how’s this?
It would seem that according to European Law, the stop & search powers being used under terrorism laws in England are and have been unlawful !!!!!
Nice one for the heads up … !!! … lawmakers of Europe, when did you realise !???!
The section 44 law which Blair and his cabinet stressed as being vital to the nations’ security was just some dictatorial form of well, basically infringing on peoples’ civil liberties …. Hmmm interesting that, as one would have to suspect that Muslims and young black males were being, well, basically harassed under the premise of some bogus law !!!
So many people were adamant that such powers like this and “Shoot to kill”, were totally necessary, especially if you had nothing to hide.
So, now that it has come to light that under European Law these searches were unlawful, how many who supported such legislation will look in the mirror and acknowledge their ignorance and blind stupidity.
These are probably the same bods who are now suffering because the economic downturn has caught them with their nostrils wrapped around fifty pound notes instead of in literature that might awaken their dumb asses to the possibility that those who told them to fear terrorists were in fact the people to fear.

Waddup peoples ?
Just read an article on the issue of financial management issues within the black community in the US.
Apparently the wealth gap between black and white families in the US is 4 times as wide as it was some 30 years ago.
An interesting statistic when looking at the amount of black faces in media and government particularly.
The article I read states that black women are becoming more conscious of the need to save and are now taking and setting up classes to pass this pearl of wisdom on.
Well, as i’ve said before and as Biggie rightfully said more money more problems !!!
There is something that runs deeper like our inability to manage everything from our personal relationships, that is, having children without assessing the pro’s and cons of the person who we sleep with, a somewhat invonvenient part of the scenario but, one that is massively important in terms of much more than financial stability.
After all, children cost money as do failed relationships, but the costs are not just financial, what about the amount of men of all colours who lose their freedom or even worse, their sanity over poor relationship choices.
It is funny to me that in a time of huge economic lows black women now want to fix their finances …?… Horse & bolted comes to mind as does the Marcus Garvey quote referring to blacks only knowing themselves when their backs are against the wall.
Conveniently, religious groups in some instances are inspiring these financial teachings, no surprises there then. Read the rest of this entry »
