Africa, cnn.com, and Memes: White South African Woman Becomes First To Be Jailed For Hate Speech After Video Of Her Racist Rant Goes Viral; Sentenced To Three Years @balleralert White South African Woman Becomes First To Be Jailed For Hate Speech After Video Of Her Racist Rant Goes Viral; Sentenced To Three Years – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While racist, hate speech should never be tolerated, it is strictly prohibited in South Africa, as it is specifically excluded from the protection of free speech in the Constitution. In fact, according to the NY Times, back in 2016, the country released a draft law that would criminalize racism, meaning hate speech cases would go to criminal courts instead of civil and would be punishable by up to 10 years in prison. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since then, the nation has moved to implement the new rules and subsequently make an example of a white South African woman. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to CNN, Vicki Momberg was found guilty in November for crimen injuria, better known as the willful injuring of someone’s dignity in her racist verbal attack on a black police officer. The incident was caught on camera and quickly went viral. Since then, Momberg has been prosecuted and sentenced to three years in prison with one year suspended sentence, as she becomes the first South African to be jailed for the offense. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We’ve had crimen injuria (cases before), but they have always been coupled by other charges. This is the first for a prison sentence for crimen injuria on its own,” a spokesperson said of the sentencing. “We are pleased with the sentence. This sends a clear message to those who undermine other people’s rights.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the incident that led to the sentencing, Momberg was caught on video hurling racial slurs at South African police officers after they stopped to help her after her car was broken into in Johannesburg. According to reports, she repeatedly used words that were used to insult black people during the apartheid. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, Momberg will have two years behind bars to think about her actions.

Child Support, Fail, and Jail: Jay-Z and Roc Nation to Invest $3 Million in App That Combats Mass Incarceration @balleralert Jay-Z and Roc Nation to Invest $3 Million in App That Combats Mass Incarceration-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Jay-Z and Roc Nation will reportedly make a $3 million investment in an app called Promise, that combats mass incarceration. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to the website, the app was created by Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins and Diana Frappier to “get people out of jail and provide ongoing support and supervision to help keep them out.” The hope is that the platform will exist as an alternative to incarcerating individuals who cannot afford bail or who miss court dates by mistake. It will provide services to users that will help them log upcoming court dates, counseling appointments, and drug tests. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ When it comes to rehabilitation, Promise plans to provide programs to users that assist with job training and getting information about housing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ As a rapper, Jay-Z has used his platform to consistently speak about how the jail system is designed to fail those of low class and people of color. Last year the rapper wrote an opinion piece on Father’s Day about the exploitative bail industry. For many individuals, they are jailed due to their inability to afford bail, despite not being convicted of crimes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ During an interview with TechCrunch, Ellis-Lamkins spoke on the small infractions that lead to many people of color ending up behind bars. “People are going to jail because they look at a piece of paper and misread it, or are going to jail because they can’t afford a class because they’re instead paying child support. If we’re putting people in jail because they’re poor, brown or black, we’re spending money the wrong way.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “We are increasingly alarmed by the injustice in our criminal justice system,” Jay-Z said in a statement confirming his involvement with the app. “Money, time and lives are wasted with the current policies. It’s time for an innovative and progressive technology that offers sustainable solutions to tough problems. Promise’s team, led by Phaedra, is building an app that can help provide ‘liberty and justice for all’ to millions.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀

Clothes, Friday, and Honda: MARCH 19, 201 TIAE Ripped Apart AMERICA'S THE COST OF IMMIGRATION CRACKDOWN BY HALEY SWEETLAND EDWARDS with two of her daughters deported te Mexkke America's immigration policy is splitting families and spreading fear . . Just before 7:30 one Friday morning last March, Alejandro said goodbye to his wife Maria and his two small daughters and headed off to work. He didn’t make it far. Four blocks from his home near Bakersfield, Calif., two unmarked vehicles, a white Honda and a green Mazda pickup truck, pulled up behind him at a stop sign. Plain-clothes Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents spilled out. They wore vests emblazoned with the word Police. . . Alejandro dialed Maria from his cell phone and told her what was happening. Her heart dropped. She said later that she knew it wouldn’t matter that Alejandro had no criminal record, not even a speeding ticket. Or that he’d driven these same roads every day for the past decade, picking grapes, pistachios and oranges in California’s Central Valley. Since 2006, when Alejandro overstayed his visa, he had been considered a “fugitive alien,” in ICE parlance, and therefore subject to immediate deportation to Mexico. Now he was arrested on the spot. . . A few days later, he was given an ankle bracelet and allowed to return home to say goodbye. He was gone by the end of spring—before his eldest, Isabella, began talking, before Estefania took her first steps, before Maria gave birth this winter to their third baby. . .

Just before the altercation, according to the witness, the young boy was wandering around the restaurant. However, when a family member went to retrieve the child, a customer hurled a racial slur at the child and spat at him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Officials were immediately called to the scene, and that is when things got even more interesting. According to the witness, upon arrival, the customer told police that everything was okay because he was a first responder. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I didn’t catch what the officer said to him, but his immediate response was ‘it’s ok, I’m a fireman,’ like that was supposed to blanket cover everything for him,” the witness said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since then, the family has confirmed the witness’ account, saying they were at the restaurant celebrating a birthday when the child wandered away from the party. Now, the firefighter could be charged with battery and making a criminal threat in the incident.

Children, Food, and Girls: Minneapolis Father Allegedly Raped and Abused Twins He Held In Captivity For Years; Fathered Two Children With One Of His Daughters @balleralert Minneapolis Father Allegedly Raped and Abused Twins He Held In Captivity For Years; Fathered Two Children With One Of His Daughters - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Wednesday, a Minneapolis man turned himself into officials after he was charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct, abuse of a vulnerable adult and stalking in the rape and abuse of his twin daughters over the last several years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jerry Lee Curry held his twin adult daughters captive, keeping them chained to doors and beds throughout the years. Amid the longstanding captivity, Curry allegedly raped, starved and beat the twin girls, and even fathered two children with one of them - all because one of his daughters had become sexually active. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In May though, after years in captivity, one of the twins managed to escape and inform authorities about the longstanding abuse. However, officials held off on charges for nine months until all the sufficient evidence was collected to pursue the charges. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I don’t ever remember having enough food,” the twice-impregnated twin revealed of her time with her father. “He forced me to have sex, [and] he has done this to me every day since I was [in my] early teens or so. He did this to my twin sister also,” she continued, adding that she was grateful it came to an end when her sister escaped. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a result of the abuse and torture, the twins suffer from a “mild to moderate” level of intellectual disability. The young women also suffer from physical injuries, as a result of the abuse. Now though, the women are grateful to be free. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the meantime, officials are looking to locate the mother of the twins. As for Curry, he is being held on $750,000 bail ahead of his first court appearance.

Cheetos, Community, and Life: FUCK TRUMP Rp @JustinoMora1: "Mood all day today and every day since the Cheeto's election! 👊🏾💯 . The haters will say we need to "have respect for the man in the White House" - well, if I didn't have any respect for Trump years ago, there's no way in hell I'm going to have respect for him now. I'm an undocumented-DACA recipient from Mexico and I say to the haters and racists: I have no respect for you or your Cheeto! So I'll tag @icegov for you so you don't waste your time. . Let's not forget how Trump started his campaign for the presidency: in 2015, he held a press conference to attack undocumented immigrants and label Mexicans as "drug dealers, criminals, and rapists". Trump knows no boundaries when it comes to attacking oppressed minorities including the LGBTQ community, women, Muslims, the disabled, and our Black brothers and sisters. Trump deserves absolutely no respect from any decent person! No white supremacist, narcissist, sexist, criminal, and demagogue deserves my respect. Trump has used the powers of the White House to inflict immeasurable harm to my community, women, people of color, and other marginalized communities. Trump will never have my respect and on this PresidentsDay, I wish him the worst day of his life! NotMyPresident HereToStay cleanDreamAct SaveTPS DreamAct DreamActNow UndocumentedAndUnafraid
