Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Says ‘More Whites Believe in Ghosts Than They Do Racism’

Six-time NBA Champion and league’s Most Valuable Player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar expounded on his position on racism in America, stating that the reason there are more television shows on “Ghost Busters and not Racist-Busters,” is because whites are likely to believe in “ghosts” than they do the existence of racism. This comment suggests that whites are oblivious to the magnitude for which racism exists in this country.

Furthermore, many whites are under the impression that racism genuinely doesn’t exist because biracial President Barack Obama was elected. The fact is that having a mixed race leader isn’t validation that racism has been “eradicated.” Abdul-Jabbar suggested that instead it is merely a “milestone” and even more a “false sense of achievement that we’ve done everything that we need to do and that we could just slip back into being complacent.” 

The topic of racism and it’s “existence” has been explored since the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner—black men killed by the hands of white police officers. These deaths have provided major insight into police brutality, their excessive usage of force, and killings primarily against black and brown men. Those in support of the officers’ decision to kill unarmed black men believe that racism played no part in their deaths and that the black men were “thugs” or “criminals,” who “resisted” the law. The latter says that the men were killed because they were black, profiled, and stereotyped as being “thugs” and “criminals,” resulting in their deaths and the lack of an indictment for either officers.

Quite frankly, it is simple to assume that law enforcement only profile, arrest, and kill the guilty when you are not a part of the group that’s being profiled, arrested, and killed. Abdul-Jabbar stated that “White Americans are not a group that is targeted, so it’s a surprise to many white Americans that discrimination and bias can affect people’s lives. They think it’s a thing of the past.”  

Overall, no matter how many black or brown lives are taken by the possible “motive” of racism, one thing is for sure. There is a greater chance of someone witnessing an act of racism than there is seeing a “ghost.”

Robin Nicollette, has written her latest criminal masterpiece that tells the story of sexy serial killers Alexis Webb and her lesbian lover, Natalie Miller.

Alexis, a social worker overseeing cases of abused children, and Natalie, a call girl, are on a mission in the small town of Heber Springs, Arkansas–serving “justice” for girls and boys that the system failed to—by killing their pedophile prey, one by one in their infamous slaughterhouse.

What makes the duo’s endeavors so chilling is that once they feel that justice has been served, they collect a very special souvenir from each case—displaying them as badges of work well done.

Things are going very well until a deranged client interferes with their efforts, threatening to expose the principles which they deeply believe in.

Will the world recognize and endorse their lethal form of justice or will the duo be misunderstood and condemned to the same sacrifice that they rendered to their “prey?”

How to Avoid High Child Support Payments and Not Be A Deadbeat Dad

How to Avoid High Child Support Payments and Not Be A Deadbeat Dad Image

Child support, while good in concept and theory, is a flawed system filled with a wealth of biases and unfair child support laws that many times aren’t reasonable for the non-custodial parent to honor. Child support enforcement has gotten more strenuous over the years, and doesn’t put forth much consideration of the obligations that non-custodial parents may have to support themselves.

While there are many parents who choose not to financially support their children, there are many who do. Nevertheless, the child support courts and the Office of Child Support Enforcement (CSE), have geared unfair child support laws to battle against deadbeat parents. Consequently, all non-custodial parents, even those who are actively involved in their children’s lives—are faced with a downward spiral of actions taken against them, making it almost impossible to recover from. Some of these atrocities include:

• Warrant(s) issued for arrest and imprisonment
• License(s) suspended and or passport revoked
• Income taxes offset
• Garnished paychecks
• Difficulty finding employment

Therefore this “child support for dummies” guide is intended to give parents with unfair and unreasonable child support payments information to determine fair monetary payments and how to set up a system that will force the state to honor those agreements. The goal is to not only protect the interests of children, but to also prevent destruction of the non-custodial parent’s assets, capital, and livelihood.
