Gregory Johnson Jr. was found dead in the basement of the Sigma Chi Fraternity at San Jose State University in 2008. Santa Clara County Law Enforcement officials floated a suicide theory that his family is not buying into and they are still seeking justice for the death of this young Black man.
Joining me on the program tonight is Rev. Denise Johnson, the mother of Gregory Johnson to inform us about the case and to share any new developments in her quest for justice.
Oprah Winfrey recently interviewed Gabby Douglass and while it has not been aired yet, information is leaking out. Ms. Douglass indicated that she suffered terrible racism at the hands of her fellow gymnast and the most harsh abuse came from those enrolled with her at Excalibur Gymnastics in Virginia Beach, VA.
Unfortunately, for Ms. Douglass, it appears she is caught in the middle of the bitter divorce of her parents and while speaking positively about her father in earlier media interviews, she is now implying he was a deadbeat. I’ll review my article on the topic titled “The continued demonization of Gabby Douglas’s father”.
Brian Mulligan, the Managing Director and Vice Chairman of Media for Deutsche Bank alleged he was brutally beaten by Los Angles Police Department officers. He recently filed a 50 million dollar lawsuit. I cannot help but wonder if President Obama will finally address the issue of police brutality now that a white banker has been allegedly victimized. We also wonder how the majority of white people will react, specifically right wing conservative pro-cop types.
