By now I hope at least some of you have heard of Javier Payne, a 14-year-old black boy from the Bronx who was attacked by the NYPD last weekend as he was walking home from a hookah shop in his neighborhood.

Cops said he was fighting with another boy, a 13-year-old neighbor in the area. 

So what do you do when two boys are fighting? 

Well, if you’re the NYPD, and the boys in question are black, you throw one of them through a window, puncturing his lung. As he lies there with blood filling his lungs, you handcuff him and refuse to call an ambulance. When you do call an ambulance, you enter the protocol for an adult drunk, instead of a dying child. When the ambulance comes, you refuse to let the paramedics uncuff him. Even as the paramedics explain that this boy is dying, you argue that he’s faking it and that he deserves to die there on the street for fighting with another boy.  When you finally do let the paramedics uncuff him and take him to the hospital, you fail to report that you threw him through a glass window despite dozens of eye-witnesses reporting the opposite.  When you are called upon by the community to account for your actions, you decide to do an “internal investigation” - therefore being accountable to no one outside your division. You encourage the deregulation of police conduct and refuse to let outsiders investigate how you train your officers.

And what do you do, if you’re a concerned citizen who is tired of seeing this? You write Bill de Blasio and you ask him to start an outside investigation into police brutality.  Or at least that’s what I did. And if you want to cosign what I wrote him, you can do that here. And if you want to signal boost that for Javier Payne, you can do that too. You can sign my petition letter here.

White Preacher Sets Himself On Fire To Inspire Justice For African Americans

When Caucasian retired pastor Charles Moore (pictured) set himself on fire on June 23 at a Grand Saline, Texas, step mall parking lot, he was reportedly prayerful that his act of suicide did not go in vain. Moore, who had dedicated his life to fighting against racism, left behind a suicide note that reportedly states he has decided to kill himself  because he was haunted by the yester-year lynchings of African Americans and wanted his death to inspire social reform, according to the New York Daily News.

The 79-year-old United Methodist clergyman’s note, which was left on his vehicle’s windshield, reportedly stated:

“Many African-Americans were lynched around here. I have decided to join them by giving my body to be burned,” he wrote.

According to police, the Harvard Divinity School graduate drove to the parking lot of a dollar store in the very same home town where racism reigned supreme and lynchings were a common occurrence once upon a time. Moore then doused himself with gasoline and struck a match. Witnesses tried to extinguish the flames; Moore was pronounced dead after being transported to a nearby hospital.

The letter Moore left also described how the cruel and inhumane racist acts he had witnessed a young child never stopped troubling his soul:

“When I was about 10 years old, some friends and I were walking down the road toward the creek to catch some fish, when a man called ‘Uncle Billy’ stopped us and called us into his home for a drink of water — but his real purpose was to cheerily tell us about helping to kill ‘n–s’ and put their heads up on a pole,” he wrote. “A section of Grande Saline was (maybe still is) called ‘pole town,’ where the heads were displayed. It was years later before I knew what the name meant.

The man who was a true devotee to selfless acts of compassion took on many social causes throughout his life.  Besides being an active civil rights supporter, Moore went on a two-week hunger strike in the ’90s to herald the rights of homosexuals. He also spoke against the death penalty and sexism as well.  Working in a slum in Bombay (now Mumbai), India, and traveling to work in developing nations in Africa and the Middle East were also among Moore’s many humanitarian efforts.

Despite all of Moore’s selfless acts, he felt self-immolation would be his ultimate contribution to possibly bringing even more attention to racism:

“I have no significant achievements to offer.  So I am laying down my life here today, in order to call attention to issues of great human concern.”
