The agonizing marathon to the November presidential election continued this week, with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump snaring commanding victories on Super Tuesday – each candidate won seven states. Significantly, black voters were widely and consistently credited with Clinton’s triumphs over Senator Bernie Sanders. Meanwhile, Trump didn’t seem to be hurt at the polls by public endorsements from Dr. David Duke and other overt White Supremacists. Speaking of overt Racism, this first week of March marks the 25 year anniversary of the late Rodney King being bludgeoned on camera by the Los Angeles Police Department. The Los Angeles Times reported that the recorded mauling drastically reduced incidents of officers using batons – also known as “nigger knockers” – on California citizens. In fact, the relationship between enforcement officials and negro citizens has improved so drastically that it’s hard to make sense of an unarmed black male being shot and killed in Alabama. Adding to the shock, a White officer, Aaron Smith, has been arrested and charged with murder. His attorney, Mickey McDermott, asserts that this is an example of “political correctness” run amok. And Black History Month and Melissa Harris-Perry’s tenure at MSNBC ended concurrently.
