MUHAMMAD: Vigilante Zimmerman — 'Have Gun-Will Travel'

Despite what the law and the jury may have decided, the Zimmerman verdict in his assassination of Trayvon Martin is preposterous on its face because even if his character was dropped down from the choir of angels, he had no business following, stalking, and then getting out of his car to confront the boy who had done nothing wrong except look like people this perpetrator hates, and who he thinks always get away with crimes.

MUHAMMAD: It's All, All about Race

In their fondest dreams conservative policymakers and believers in the United States insist that times have changed so much in this country since the days of chattel slavery that race-centered solutions to that unholy crime against humanity now unjustly discriminate on the beneficiaries of America's "peculiar institution." Those beneficiaries are the sons and daughters of the slave owners, and everyone else in this society.

MUHAMMAD: Before 'Being Gay' Was a Movement

Today, being gay has a meaning which is attached to one's sexual preference that is a "gay person" is someone who prefers having sex with a partner who's of the same gender. That's TMI – too much information for me.

Israeli, Guantanamo Prisoners Discover Weapon

Literally for decades the tiny state of Israel (population 8 million, about the size of Maryland) has branded itself as a tiny oasis of freedom in the middle of hostile, despotic Arab nations which hate her. The truth of the matter is that Israel is an apartheid state which treats the Arab population within her borders, as well as in the Palestinian land she illegally occupies, and her surrounding neighbors as less than human.
