At War With The Government? - Armed, angry and White

The Final Call takes a look at underreported tension and brewing disaster as angry Whites threaten law enforcement in the U.S.

A firestorm of anger and death threats was set in motion against federal agents, state and local law enforcement and Oregon Governor Kate Brown after LaVoy Finicum, 54, was shot and killed by state troopers earlier this year. The shooting happened on an interstate highway when federal agents attempted to arrest Mr. Finicum and a group of armed White ranchers, led by Ammon Bundy of the notorious Cliven Bundy family.

The group had led a 41-day armed takeover and occupation of a federal facility at the Malheur National Wildlife refuge in Oregon. Mr. Finicum was a leading figure in the militia group.

Oregon authorities said without a doubt state police shot Mr. Finicum to protect themselves and their fellow officers from imminent harm. Militia sympathizers disagree, arguing Mr. Finicum was murdered in cold blood and some want retaliation. » FULL STORY

The Passing Of A Prince

By Charlene Muhammad -National Correspondent-

Music icon's legacy includes important stands for artist independence and calls for justice.

Vigils, block parties, and celebrations of his life continued across the world for music artist and global icon Prince, who passed away at age 57 on April 21.

Prince was an incredible musician, culture watchers and analysts told The Final Call. Just look at the outpouring of love by fans touched by his music, they said.

But, they added, Prince is also loved because he was principled. He fought for artists’ rights and for justice. He fought for people who could not fight for themselves, not just through his music, but with his clout and his finances.

“I like you will miss Prince. I like you saw the Greatness in his Struggle just to gain ownership of his own name. I saw the Greatness of his Being, the courage that he had to fight for, not only his own image, his own likeness, and his own music masters but to fight for others who were not as blessed with the depth of love and the breadth of courage that he demonstrated,” wrote the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
