Blacks In Law Enforcement of America

blealogo   Blacks in Law Enforcement of America (BLEA) recognize the rich history of the African American law enforcement professional who fought for our survival and 120 years later, we now have black commissioners and chiefs in law enforcement. We will never forget the shoulders that we stand on, because we did not get here on our own. Blacks in Law Enforcement of America recognize that true policing is “extended,” meaning that the existence of BLEA will not only focus on the policy and procedures of the institution of law enforcement. BLEA will also focus on outside institutions like education, economic development, and employment that can contribute to the crime, safety, and security of the communities we serve. Blacks in Law enforcement will continue to express “ Black” as it refers to people of color that are law enforcement professionals. The emphasis is on the common experience and determination of the people of African, Afro-Caribbean and Asian origin that opposes the effects of the policies and procedures in the history of our Justice System, that are based on racial bias and disproportionality.

Petition to Boycott the NFL and Sponsors for Refusing to sign Colin Kaepernick

We are asking all Black Law Enforcement Organizations, civil rights organizations, grass root organizations to do the same.  PLEASE SIGN HERE  

 

 

“What does it say about the NFL, and about us, when at least a half-dozen men who have been accused of physical or sexual assault have been welcomed into the NFL over the past week, while Colin Kaepernick still has not?

While some NFL teams were busy drafting names from the police blotter last weekend, Kaepernick was standing outside a New York City parole office, handing out two boxes of his own custom-made suits to men who needed them for upcoming job interviews. He has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to charity. In March, it was reported by several news media outlets, including USA TODAY Sports, that Kaepernick will not protest the national anthem this coming season. And yet he’s still a free agent, so far unwanted by all 32 NFL teams.

 

The NFL is also broadcasting a message to Black people throughout the world that Black issues do not matter. It is uncommon that our children see athletes standing up for issues in their communities, especially for the many black men that have been unjustly killed by Law Enforcement.

As conscious Black People, we must send the same message to the NFL and their Sponsors that our dollars matter by boycotting the NFL and their products for basically punishing Kaepernick for his position on social justice issues.

We are asking all Black Law Enforcement Organizations, civil rights organizations, grass root organizations to do the same.  PLEASE SIGN HERE
