Anyone remember what Memorial Day is for? Here, kids place flags on veterans’ graves at the Evergreen-Washelli cemetery in Seattle. On this day, I’m thinking especially of the fathers and brothers still somewhere in Vietnam. Return to The-Ave.US Home Page[...]

Under pressure, California county renames “Jim Crow Street”

Imagine living in a small town nestled in the Sierra foothills, on “Jim Crow Road,” and a black UPS driver comes by to drop off a package. Or you call “some public agency” they ask for your address, “and you go ‘Jim Crow Road,’” resident Jim Steinbarth says.�[...]

Illinois bans cops deceiving juveniles

Police are under pressure to solve crimes, and the easiest way of doing that is getting suspects to talk. And they’re more willing to talk when detectives lie to them, as in “your buddy told us you were there.” Courts have ruled this is generally okay. The problem is some people ad[...]

Flynn calls for U.S. military coup

Capitol Shaman’s lawyer: “He is not crazy!” That’s debatable.

Do blacks have 2nd Amendment rights?

Heck no! The 2nd Amendment was never meant to apply to them, it was meant to apply against them! And, largely, still is. Oh, a black guy can go to the Bureau of Non-Regulation of Firearms, get a permit (because they have to give it to him), and carry a gun just like white folks. But […][...]
