    ..."On a hot summer afternoon in August 1998, 37-year-old U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Rossano V. Gerald and his young son Gregory drove across the Oklahoma border into a nightmare. A career soldier and a highly decorated veteran of Desert Storm and Operation United Shield in Somalia, SFC Gerald, a black man of Panamanian descent, found that he could not travel more than 30 minutes through the state without being stopped twice: first by the Roland City Police Department, and then by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

    ....During the second stop, which lasted two-and-half hours, the troopers terrorized SFC Gerald's 12-year-old son with a police dog, placed both father and son in a closed car with the air conditioning off and fans blowing hot air, and warned that the dog would attack if they attempted to escape. Halfway through the episode – perhaps realizing the extent of their lawlessness – the troopers shut off the patrol car's video evidence camera."....

    ..."After Morales was hired in 2013, she said she was taken off the club premises to an off-site location and provided with a bogus Social Security card and ID.

    .....Morales also told CNN that after Trump became President, her manager became more aggressive towards employees and claimed she was repeatedly threatened with deportation.

    ....Morales is currently petitioning for asylum from the US government. Her case has a hearing scheduled for December 17.
    Diaz told CNN that she decided to go public in part because of what she called “a whole new level of hypocrisy.”.......

    For black people a never ending fear of being stopped and then worse.

    Sandra Bland stopped for driving while black. Then the worse happened to her.

    In 2017, African-American drivers in Missouri were 85 percent more likely to be pulled over than whites, according to the report. That’s a 10 percent jump from the year before and the most significant disparity to surface in the 18 years the state has tracked the race of the people stopped by the police.

    ....The number was 69 percent in 2015.

    ...Black drivers were 51 percent more likely than whites to be searched after they were stopped, according to the report. But white drivers were more likely to be found with contraband during a search than African Americans or Hispanics.

    ....The contraband hit rate for whites was 35.5 percent, compared with 32.9 percent for blacks and 27.9 percent for Hispanics.
    About 7.1 percent of Hispanics and 6.6 percent of African Americans were arrested after stops, compared with 4.2 percent of whites.

    ...No wonder the NAACP issued a travel advisory last year warning people of color about the dangers of driving through Missouri. The numbers are egregious, as one police official said, and deplorable, as an NAACP official said.

    I have a theory (and this is just a theory):
    It's been said that Russian trolls have stumped for both sides of the aisle, in an effort to fan the flames of division in the West.

    ..."The Russians helped Trump by building on his efforts to inflame racial tensions and divide America. Now it's a national security problem that we must fix.

    .....White supremacists who’ve tried to brand themselves as the “alt-right” often demonstrate a Trump-like reverence for Putin’s predominantly white, openly anti-LGBT Russia. And that affection is often rewarded by Russia’s vast propaganda efforts."...

    ..."Where in the past the Soviet Union touted itself as a state free of racial discrimination and attracted tiny numbers of blacks like Paul Robeson to tour the country and at times live there, Russia's post-Cold War state of "managed democracy" offers no such illusions. Instead, the Russian project under President Vladimir Putin seeks to destabilize American democracy by turning the nation's inner demons against itself."
