Black Officers Creed

When he or she initiates a career in law enforcement…

He or she is often the motif in political agendas; agendas that lack the political substance and support, therefore…

He or she often endures the trials and tribulations, reserved for culprits, although…

He or she is proficient and dignified; to their taskmasters he or she is falsely depicted, incompetent and a prevaricator, withal…

His or her accomplishments are often exploited by their taskmasters; therefore tutelage and honors of distinction are far and in-between, whereby…

His or her comrades often ignore their dedication and character; but are cognizant of their Nubian features and the melanin within, moreover…

He or she is often the target of an offender’s agitation and a comrade’s violence, still he or she remains their protector, eventually…

He or she is celebrated by most for their obligation to public safety, but they are still, despised by some for a commitment to justice and equality…

Yet

He or she is in possession of a strong sense of morality; as seductions will beset his trail…

He or she is methodical as a human and in his thoughts; for his or her confidence and aspirations will plead for this…

Tolerance and fortitude is his or her partner; tolerance smoothes the approach for his or her balanced pondering, while his or her fortitude is infinite…

His or her status imparts in him a sense of authority; to which he or she must discipline so that no man, woman, or child need fear…

Except when there is justification…

Therefore, because of these concepts and by these concepts he or she will become stalwart. A true servant and sentinel of the law…

I speak this creed, because I am this creed, I am the Black officer

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
