Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

#MikeBrown Is Only The Latest Black Victim To Be Smeared For Smoking Pot #RenishaMcBride #JonathanFerrell

Law enforcement in Ferguson, Missouri still haven’t told the public about the facts that preceded the deadly shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown. What they have told us is that he was the suspect in a robbery. And now, that he may have had marijuana in his system at the time of his death.

Toxicology reports are a standard element of autopsies. But neither of these facts have been linked to the firing of six deadly bullets by a police officer into his body and head. Still, some right-wing pundits including Rush Limbaugh have already seized on the Brown’s possible use of marijuana to villify him. It’s the same sort of portrayal that prompted the viral #IfTheyGunnedMeDown hashtag, in which news outlets chose to disseminate images of Michael Brown that might make him seem more like a thug than a young teen who was starting college in two days. And none of it has anything to do with whether he should have died.  | ThinkProgress
