Tasered while praying.

I really wish I could get worked up over a latte salute like conservatives (I suppose a doggie salute would have been cool), or climate change and sustainable energy like my friends on the left, but as a black man in America I have more pressing things to worry about these days.


Not getting shot or tasered by the people who are supposed to protect and serve me is very high on my list as I write this post.


I mean even if you are a black man who serves the Lord you are going to have issues with the po po.


"A family told Channel 11 it is suing police after an alleged incident after their son was shot and died in the hospital.

The Rev. Earl Baldwin Jr. said when his stepson, Mileek Grissom, died in UPMC Mercy Hospital’s emergency room, police officers crossed the line.

“I needed to tell him his family was going to be OK. I was going to do everything I could to make sure they were OK,” Baldwin said.

Video shows Baldwin being ripped away from Grissom by a group of police officers. One officer used a Taser on Baldwin.

UPMC claims Baldwin was interfering with attempts to revive his stepson.

“Watch the video. Not only was the child not being treated. The child was dead,” said the Baldwin’s family attorney, Joel Sansone.

According to Sansone, police stopped Tori Baldwin in front of the hospital, refusing to let her see her son.

“I wanted to rub his head. I wanted to kiss him. I know he was calling for his mom,” said Tori Baldwin.

Pittsburgh police did not comment Thursday after Channel 11 talked to the family. Police will be required to publicly respond to the lawsuit claims in a matter of days."

Now let's be clear, the Baldwin family might not have been acting according to the rules of the hospital while their son lay dead. But I think the police could have been a bit more sensitive in the situation.


Speaking of "people of faith", I am saddened to see that my white evangelical brothers and sisters believe that they are being
discriminated against more than the Negroes, the Jews, and the evil Moooslims.


"The Pew Forum has released a doozy of a poll about religion in public life in the United States showing that white evangelical Christians possess grossly overdeveloped feelings of victimhood. Given that the voting bloc evangelicals comprise is one of the most heavily pandered to in American politics, and given the fact that evangelicals themselves are the cause of some very real discrimination, there is thus a mountainous irony at play here.


In a survey of 2,002 Americans, Pew found that 72% believe that religious influence is waning in the country, and sadly, 56% regard this as a “negative development.” A disturbing 59% of Americans say they want members of Congress to “have strong religious beliefs.” When it comes to discrimination, believe it or not, more Americans think that evangelicals are discriminated against than atheists.

I feel their pain. But somehow I don't think that they have to worry about being shot or tasered after they leave a prayer- meeting or choir practice.
