Racist Man Slaps & Spits at Elderly Black woman, Called Her Rosa Parks, He Didn’t Realize That She Was A Cook County Judge!!!!!

Racist Man Slaps & Spits at Elderly Black woman, Called Her Rosa Parks, He Didn't Realize That She Was A Cook County Judge!!!!!

 

A North Side business owner slapped a 79-year-old Cook County judge in the face, spit on her and called her “Rosa Parks” after becoming angry that she was smoking near him outside the Daley Center, authorities said.

Monday’s attack outside the courthouse came as a shock to friends of Judge Arnette Hubbard, a silver-haired African-American jurist who was the first female president of the National Bar Association and Cook County Bar Association, both black lawyers’ groups.

“She’s an icon in our community,” said Delores Robinson, past president of the Cook County Bar Association, who noted that Hubbard, a former commissioner on the Cook County Board of Elections, had been an international election observer in Haiti and South Africa and had long been a voice on civil rights and women’s issues.Cook County prosecutors said Tuesday that Hubbard was outside the Daley Center smoking a cigarette when she walked past David C. Nicosia, 55, who became angry that she was smoking near him.

The two argued and Nicosia, who is white, stepped near her face and said, “Rosa Parks, move,” and spit in her face, prosecutors said. As he walked away, the Law Division judge followed him and called out for assistance.

Nicosia then turned and allegedly slapped the judge on the left side of her face with an open hand, prosecutors said. He was then arrested by sheriff’s deputies and charged with four counts of aggravated battery and a hate crime.

Judge James Brown ordered him held on $90,000 bail Tuesday.

Chief Judge Timothy Evans, whose offices are also in the Daley Center, declined to comment. A representative said judicial rules of conduct barred Evans from speaking about a pending criminal case.

Born in Arkansas, Hubbard graduated from Southern Illinois University and John Marshall Law School and began her legal career in 1969 working on civil rights cases, according to online biographies. As part of the city’s African-American power structure, she spent several terms on the city’s election board as well as the cable commission.

Hubbard was appointed to the bench in 1997, re-elected to a six-year term the following year and retained since in two more elections, most recently in 2010.

Nicosia, who state records show is president of an IT consulting business, has no prior Cook County convictions. His attorney did not return a message seeking comment.

Friends of Hubbard were left shaking their heads Tuesday.

“People of good common sense and decency, people of good hearts should be outraged by this,” Robinson said. “Not just because of who she is but that this happened to anybody.”

“I’m still in shock,” said longtime friend Geraldine Simmons, 75, also a past president of the Cook County Bar Association, who questioned whether deputies acted quickly enough

You nor I , or anyone on this Planet will ever be able to fight ignorance with ignorance . You have to raise above the lowly acts and stand up with dignity and respect for your self , use the system for what it was made , and if you have to make a loud noise through Peaceful protest and media actions then let that be your recourse. But to spout racist and ignorant rhetoric only takes away from the real purpose and intent . If you intend to prove that you deserve better treatment and that you will not accept anything less you need to insure that you present your self in a respectable and intelligent manner , of which personifies that which you deserve.. Hope I am not stepping on your toes by real talk – Brother , or Sister let’s keep it 100% Hate vs Hate = HATE.. It has to stop somewhere , someone has to step back and say this is not right nor will it be tolerated and I have the Law on my side to ensure it won’t happen again. Choose your category and act accordingly..

            Yeah its aggravated battery b’cus when you spit on somebody it’s like a weapon u could have AIDS or any other kind of disease that person can contact that could cause them harm or death. Your mouth is the nastiest part of your body. Aggravated means using of an weapon that may cause bodily harm or death.

          • Ernest Donell Wilds says:

            Because the law in Chicago/Illinois states that spitting or slap/hitting someone is battery. Under Illinois Law (720 ILCS 5/12 4), Aggravated battery is defined as follows: (a) A person who, in committing a battery, intentionally or knowingly causes great bodily harm, or permanent disability or disfigurement commits aggravated battery. She was a judge in this case. According to that law, he will be charged a class 4 felony which is a more serious penalty. It explains in Illinois law, an aggravated battery if it is committed with the intent to do great bodily harm, committed with a deadly weapon, or if it is committed against a certain class of people such as teachers, the elderly, or pregnant women. Furthermore, wearing a hood while committing a battery, poisoning another’s food, hitting someone while they are in a public place, or hitting a police officer are all examples of conduct that would fall under the Illinois aggravated battery law.

Some lines you NEVER cross….NEVER injure the children, the elderly, the handicapped, nor the animals!!

            Unfortunately, I think that we’re all racists to some extent. One of the MAJOR differences between us however is that young white men and women are NEVER shot by police because of the clothes that they wear, or music to which they listen, etc. Nor have I yet to hear of a single incident in which a black person stood his/her ground and shot a white person… much less got away with it! Let’s be honest and candid with each other… it’s real tough to be black in America! I can’t believe how disrespectfully President Obama (and his wife) are STILL being treated!!! He saved us from the brink of total financial collapse, saved the American car industry, successfully implemented a viable universal health care program that 4 presidents before him were unable to do, killed Osama Bin Laden, withdrew our troops from Iraq and Afganistan, implemented environmental laws that are noticably making a difference in the way that we treat our planet and environment, and has totally eradicated and corrected, the abysmal unemployment rate that he inherited from his really dumb and criminal predecessor(s)… the best President we’ve EVER had! Yet, Congress and that ignorant, hateful bitch Sara Palin want to impeach him… and for what? Being black!

        Brandon Raul, that’s not true. Hate crimes are punishable, and I’m certain this would qualify as one. Also, spitting on or at someone is a federal offense. And if that’s not enough for you, slapping anyone, judge or not, female or not, is assault. Those charges should get laid on thick. Put, also, into consideration that he was clearly acting out his racism. While it might not be a crime to be racist, it is absolutely a crime to carry out racist behavior toward another in the form of a crime.

        I find it amusing when someone like you comes along. Have you ever researched the etymology of the word? Let me guess “no”! Cracker is an old standby Anglo insult that was first noted in the mid 18th century which makes it older than the U.S. It was used to refer to poor whites, particularly those from the frontier regions of Maryland, Virginia and Georgia. It is suspected that it is a shortened version of “whipcracker” since the manual labor they did involved driving livestock with a whip. Over the course of time it came to represent a person of lower caste or criminal disposition. This term was around long before slaves used this word in reference to brutal slave masters. How someone can take pride is such a reference is mind boggling.

        Cracker is not an insult since its what the slaves used to call the slave owners due to beating them with whips. To racist whites its more of a compliment if they understand what it really means. Black people need to do their research before making so called racists remarks. Actually I am not sure why black people call white people racial slurs anyway, what good does it really do? And not to mention how does that make them any better than racist white people.

Until things like this (both reported, and unreported)are no longer happening….until people(of ANY race)no longer find this example, (or any other form>physical, mental or verbal) tolerable, acceptable and a victimless crime! Unfortunately, until we know better….we lack the resources to do better! As long as others find our despicable, unwarranted and deplorable behavior even the lease bit entertaining or chatworthy….as my grandmother would say….”We’re all goin’ to hell, in a handbasket!!”

    Angry people have a lot of personal probs, am guessing the man in this news story has a lot of stuff going on at home for him to be THAT BOLD. It’s a great big world out there and she was outdoors smoking, and if he didn’t like it he could move, you don’t tell people outside what they are supposed to do w/ their person. It’s like 50% of this country has lost its mind, the haters are SO BOLD! WHEN will they realize their shame and go back under their rocks? Hopefully this guy’s rock will be Cook County Prison for a while. Am sure he’s remorseful now, but also prob STILL angry. Anger undoes you, and typically works the opposite of how you’d expect – talking loud is akin to chimps flinging feces, it isn’t going to make people turn and say calmly and reasonably, “You are right sir, i should prob tell everyone else at Daley Center that you are here and we should all watch out to make sure this is the best Daley Plaza exp you have ever had.”

    And incidentally, racial slurs only have the power YOU GIVE THEM. Even if someone says them in anger, that’s THEIR problem, not yours, it has done NOTHING to you personally, rise ABOVE the toads out there and spread all that is good in our natures. It’s the only way to stamp out these human garbage specimens.

    Here is the thing many fail to understand, i personally would not never waste my time calling a racist Caucasian a cracker, not because ‘i would not stoop so low’, but rather it is no insult but merely labeling one what they simply are with reference to my ancestors’ coined terminology for the (assaulting) racist Caucasian sort.

    Caucasians/Whites y’all do NOT have the same history we do in regards to who suffered under who’s hand (and still currently do)and it was through this suffering that our ancestors who suffered under your race coined a word for their White slave drivers who cracked/whipped them day in day out. Now keeping current explanation in mind, it was rightfully labeled and used back then, so it does not become wrong yet alone even a racist term all of a sudden in our current day and age.

    I find it really funny some people without logic, trying to find fault in correct labeling,or cry reverse racism now have the nerve to compare it to the White race using the N word on the Black race. The N word was what the White race coined from their ignorant, inhumane and oppressing treatment toward us. I mean that is a typical case of ‘insult upon injury’ to put in mild terms and you guys might have so easily been able to get away with it then, but ofcourse not now.

    So a White who wishes to take offence and a Black who has blindly bought into the idea that calling a White a cracker is being racist toward them, explain it to me now with consideration to all i have said please. Did Blacks or even coloreds brutalize, control and kill the White race? Where/are the White race under our mercy? Do you see insult upon injury somewhere? Do you even see an injury to begin with? So how do you see an insult from a term coined by your victim race, from your brutality to them again, yet alone it then being remotely classified as a form of reverse racism?

    Can you not see that in actual fact calling a White a cracker is simply a more direct, specific(to a brutal White racist) and blunt form of calling a White person a racist? So exactly what is wrong with that when you really think about the logic here? Absolutely zero wrong with it, people sometimes accuse people of being racist, whether rightfully or wrongfully accused it is still acceptable to call someone a racist. If anyone is wrongfully accused of being a racist, the most they can do is deny it and call the person out on using the race card.

    Anyway i have tried enough educating here, take it in or not, does not change the facts of the matter that some have missed. Connecting back to the story here, whoever called this business owner a cracker used the term rightfully in this case, from what transpired in the incident, he is a clear racist AND he also committed an assault might i add, it fits perfect to the T with the reasoning behind the coining of the word in the first place, no? I rest my case people.

  • another anon poster says:

    Hubbard, a silver-haired African-American jurist who was the first female president of the National Bar Association and Cook County Bar Association, both black lawyers’ groups.
    Can this be right, or did the reporter cite the wrong groups? I’m sure there’s African American lawyers groups out there in every city, but I didn’t think the ‘National’ Bar Assoc and the ‘Cook County’ Bar Assoc would be particularly described as black lawyer groups. I’m not a lawyer and I don’t live in Chicago, so I don’t know, just asking a question here, not trying to be racist, or demean her accomplishments or anything.
    By the way, that guy is trash, and deserves a harsh penalty. Hopefully he will loose his business as people will rightfully not want to do business with such an individual as he.

  • God's Light says:

    @Alana Latham, tag me in for a moment so the word can prove all things. How did we get to this side off the world? We are the Israelites. Moses said that we would be cursed by so called white people. They are not white but,”RED.” Genesis 25:23-25

    23 And the Lord said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.

    24 And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.

    25 And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.(or Edom) Idumaea- Greek and Rome name for Edom.Check the history books on the Greek and Roman empires. Today, Esau calls the the Native American red because God hates him and he knows what jugdment is waiting for the whole race! I will post it for you, “so called white people.”First, I want you white people to see all the blackness you really worship and don’t know.

    (The Father) Daniel 7:9

    9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.

    (The pure wool, Black People be proud of your hair.)

    Leviticus 13:29-30

    29 If a man or woman have a plague upon the head or the beard;

    30 Then the priest shall see the plague: and, behold, if it be in sight deeper than the skin; and there be in it a yellow thin hair; then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a dry scall, even a leprosy upon the head or beard. (Blonde-yellow hair means cursed hair)

    (Christ) What did John see? Revelation 1:1-2

    1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

    2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.

    So, that just killed that bs noone ever saw Jesus!

    Revelation 1:12-15

    12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;

    13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

    14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

    15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

    (Christ has hair like his father, skin like fine brass. Wait burn anything in a furnace and it’s Black!)
    He speaks loud!

    Hewbrews 10:7

    7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God

    Psalm 40:7

    7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,(The Whole Bible)

    Daniel 10:5-6

    5 Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz:

    6 His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude.(Wow!)

    Which of the12 tribes is Christ? and what’s their color?

    Hebrews 7:14

    14 For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.

    (Black) Jeremiah 14:2

    2 Judah mourneth, and the gates thereof languish; they are black unto the ground; and the cry of Jerusalem is gone up.

    (God said they are Black like who?) Amos 9:7

    7 Are ye not as children of the Ethiopians unto me, O children of Israel? saith the Lord. Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt? and the Philistines from Caphtor, and the Syrians from Kir?

    (The real Egyptians and Israelites are Black) Exodus 11:7

    7 But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the Lord doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.

    (God turned Moses hand white) Exodus 4:6-7

    6 And the Lord said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow.

    7 And he said, Put thine hand into thy bosom again. And he put his hand into his bosom again; and plucked it out of his bosom, and, behold, it was turned again as his other flesh.

    Job 30:30

    My skin is black upon me, and my bones are burned with heat.

    (Who does God Love? Deuteronomy 7:7-6

    6 For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

    7 The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:

    Amos 3:2

    2 You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities

    Psalm 147:19-20

    19 He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.

    20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the Lord.

    Let’s se how he feels about all other nations. Isaiah 40:15-17

    15 Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.

    16 And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering.

    17 All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.

    (Christ again) Matthew 15:22-28

    And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.

    23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.

    (Jesus blow her off, and his boys said git the hell on!)

    24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

    (He was sent for his people only, the Israelites.)

    25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.

    26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs.

    (Jesus called all nations out side of his people dogs)

    27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table

    (What did she call all the other people? Dogs)

    28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

    (And because you know Dogs don’t eat at the table, I healed your daughter)

    (The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade) Isaiah 46:10

    10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

    (Moses warned the “Us” Israel, The Curses) Deuteronomy 28:15,26,30,32,37,43-44,46,48,68

    15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee: (It shall come to pass means – in the future)

    26 And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away. (history books show pics of us hanging from trees,our dead unburied bodies left for animals to feed)

    30 Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof.
    (Just watch the movie, 12 years a Slave)

    32 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long; and there shall be no might in thine hand.
    (Watch 12 years a Slave, Roots)

    37 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the Lord shall lead thee.(Proverb:Today, we all eat catfish, chicken, and watermelon.All So call Black men play basketball, in gangs, kill, steal, make babies and don’t take care of them. Bywords: We are called niggers, niggas, negros, blacks, pickaninny, colored, African-American, Afro-American.)

    43 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.

    44 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail. (Do the so called Blacks own any Banks today?) No!

    46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.

    (The curses are on us as a sign proving we are the real Israelites)

    48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the Lord shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.(The chains didn’t come off our necks until we were destroyed mentally. We no longer keep God’s laws, and believe in ever religion under the sun. We are the only people that have a God that doesn’t look like us, he’s white!) That’s how one white man control so many slaves, God looked like him! Blacks, Latinos, and Natives still believe that madness today!)

    68 And the Lord shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.(Egypt mean bondage – slavery)
    Exodus 20:2

    2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
    (The Israelites walked out of Egypt through the Red Sea.This last captivity would be by ships and we would be sold as slaves men and women.)

    Joel 3:3-6

    3 And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.

    4 Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head;

    5 Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things:

    6 The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border.

    (Cast lots- bid, Grecians- Esau aka so call white man)

    (The curses, No other people can say this happen to them) Daniel 9:12

    12 And he hath confirmed his words, which he spake against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole heaven hath not been done as hath been done upon Jerusalem

    .
    (The Fake Jews) Revelation 2:9

    I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

    Revelation 3:9

    9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee

    I didn’t forget about you, Esau!

    Where do you want me to start? I will I.D. your cry baby ass.

    Genesis 27:38-40

    38 And Esau said unto his father, Hast thou but one blessing, my father? bless me, even me also, O my father. And Esau lifted up his voice, and wept.

    39 And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, Behold, thy dwelling shall be the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above;

    40 And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.
    (Esau- so called white man rules the earth with the sword) so called white people run everything

    Job 9:24

    24 The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he? (Job is saying so called white people are evil and they run rule the world.)

    Malachi 1:1-4 (God loves Jacob, hate Esau)

    1 The burden of the word of the Lord to Israel by Malachi.

    2 I have loved you, saith the Lord. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob’s brother? saith the Lord: yet I loved Jacob,

    3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.

    4 Whereas Edom saith, We are impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places; thus saith the Lord of hosts, They shall build, but I will throw down; and they shall call them, The border of wickedness, and, The people against whom the Lord hath indignation for ever.
    (so called white people, these are God’s words. He hates you forever, because you’re evil!)

    Psalm 58:3

    3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.

    (See, God said you wicked evil people can’t help it. As soon as you cry in this world you want to take everything and give nothing back! Evil as Hell)

    Obadiah 1:1-4
    1 The vision of Obadiah. Thus saith the Lord God concerning Edom; We have heard a rumour from the Lord, and an ambassador is sent among the heathen, Arise ye, and let us rise up against her in battle.

    2 Behold, I have made thee small among the heathen: thou art greatly despised.

    3 The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground?

    4 Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the Lord.

    (Every empire from Edomite empire form Greece to American, Esau exalts himself as the eagle.
    Nest among the stars – space travel) Obadiah.saw the future, what did Apollo 11 say? The Eagle has landed. (thence will I bring thee down, saith the Lord – remember the Space Ship Challenger January 28, 1986)

    (God does all things) Isaiah 45:7

    7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

    (God kills) Deuteronomy 32:39

    39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

    Revelation 13:9-10

    9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.

    10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

    (so, you have to pay for all that slavery stuff. I know, all so call whites say get over it, it wasn’t me, but God says different.)

    Isaiah 14:21

    21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.
    (God is going to kill you living wicked red, so called white people for what your daddies did to his people.) Why you ask? Good question, I will answer it

    Romans 9:11-14

    11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;)

    12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.

    13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

    14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.
    (God can do whatever he wants, he God all by himself)

    Romans 9:15-26

    15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.

    16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

    17 For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. (God raised up Pharaoh just to destroy him, the same thing is going to happen to America)

    18 Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth. (He made Pharaoh wicked, The white man is made the same way)

    19 Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?

    20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?

    21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?

    22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:

    23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,

    24 Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? (God is in control, because when the Jews rule we rule alone)

    25 As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.

    26 And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God. (Because will save us, Israel only.)

    (Take a Look at Heaven) Isaiah 14:1

    1 For the Lord will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.

    2 And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the Lord for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.

    3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,

    4 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!

    5 The Lord hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers.

    6 He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth.

    7 The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.

    (Yes, we will have all the other nations as servants) Not you Esau,100% will not make it.

    (Heaven is better in NT, Right?) Revelation 21:12

    12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
    (You have to be for one of the 12 tribes to get in)

    (Remember the other Nations) Revelation 21:24-27

    24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

    25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.

    26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.

    27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

    (Rule the other Nations) Revelation 2:26-27

    26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

    27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.

    1 Thessalonians 5:21

    21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

    Some said it should only be a charge of simple assault. Just to clarify…..the charge of hate crime is in play because he spitting on her AFTER calling her Rosa Parks. The charge is aggravated assault because he WALKED AWAY and came back to slap her when she asked for help. Had he only slapped her and spat on her, WITHOUT saying anything, then walked it would have been simple assault.

    The charges he received coincide with his actions and are correct. Don’t believe me go do what he did to someone and see what charges you get!

    Its just a sad thing to see because our word is going backward. We will be back to segregation soon enough; segregation by wealth AND race. Arguing about his charges should not be ANYONE’S main focus. Our focus as a nation should be coming together for the sake of our nation before the next generation is left with nothing!

      She is 79 years old. Anyways like I have stated before smoking cigarettes does not always equal bad for you, some people can live until 100 and smoke everyday! I am not saying this is the norm, but a person who lives a happier life and smokes, is better off generally than someone who is miserable and eats healthy and never smokes. And genes do play a factor.

    This is an unfortunate chain of events. I agree that smoking in someone’s presence is rude and inconsiderate. I wonder if he asked her politely or did he make a demand for her to stop. I also wonder if they bantered back and forth. After all she is a judge and he is a business owner they are both accustomed to being in charge. I am curious, but it really is irrelevant. There is absolutely NO reason this situation should have elevated in the manner that it did. I am a firm believer that if you do the crime you must do the time! People seem to think it is key that the woman turned out to be a Judge. Again this is irrelevant, spitting on someone is despicable and shows a lack of respect. She could have been unemployed, would still be deserving of justice. This man displayed very racist tendencies that we all know still exist in our society. That aside he assaulted this woman and should realize the consequence of his actions.

    Why do you hate the day I was born and you don’t know me. You raise your own to hate me, before they get to know me. You gather in private locations to conspire ways to make us extinct. You have stolen all our ideas, inventions, money and land. Hundreds of years ago so many marched for equality. And there was a Dream that we would be free at last. The non violence movements just to prove you are just like me. From the siting in the front of the bus, to segregating of schools. From slavery to holding the President seat we are still despised, not respected, called out our names time and time again. Under paid, unemployed, mother and fatherless children. Our men have be incarcerated, and striped of our heritage. Reformed to a culture that we are not apart of, so we become confused, brain washed, misunderstood, forced to accept religion that is not the truth, but translated to suit you. The ones that hate me since the day I was born. If I can get my brother to see with his blinded eyes. We have been tricked to fight each other, leave the homes of our children’s mother, commit crimes to be caged like animals, kill for the money that is rightfully ours.
    Let’s research the truth about who we are, and the royalty we are, make a stand against racism by using the knowledge we gained because we are more powerful then we know when we take a stand. That’s why the fear is in them and that’s why the tricks began. I understand why you hate the day I was born, but lies will never stand. Once I spread the truth to others and they too will understand. Hatred and racism has no place on this earth that God created for all men. We are the chosen people and the original man of God. We’re are the blood that is in every culture of man. Now we know who we are let’s take a Stand!!!!!!!

    White people: stop crying about being called crackers. You robbed a continent of it’s people, forced them to be slaves, stole land from native people, created Jim Crowe laws and now you systematically abuse and control people of color through racism. You ALL are granted privileges people of color will NEVER know BECAUSE you are white. Even if you are poor or gay or a woman if you are WHITE you have WHITE PRIVILEGE. But keep whining about being called a cracker (which is a name you guys earned for yourselves since it’s born out of slavery when you would “crack” the whips at us). There’s no such thing as racism against white people and no you don’t have the right to your opinion when it’s a racist one. Some things (like human rights) aren’t debatable and if you can’t understand that then I hope to god you don’t ever reproduce and you just stay in your house alone forever until you die. Shut the fuck up white people, go cry somewhere else. Not on the comments section of article about the racism that black people are STILL going through today because of you useless pieces of shit.

    I am saddened by this story. Even more so by some of the comments I have read. I am a white male 32 years old. I grew up close to Detroit, yes the suburbs, but close. Not all of us white people are racist, believe it or not. I encountered more discrimination as a white male than I ever gave to ANY other race. To categorize anyone is a form of racism. I have always followed the golden rule that you treat others the way you want to be treated. In most of my life experience, this has always been the right way to be. Seeing the hate on this thread goes to show you that no matter what the outcome is, there forever will always be people hating each other. Why? Because of idiots like this man who slapped and verbally assaulted this judge. Because of the people on this thread (no particular race is being pointed at) who refuse to grow up and except reality. The reality is, we all bleed the same color, breathe the same air, and live on the same planet. We could try and treat each other the same, but that would require too much sacrifice and compromise. I live in Tennessee now. My nephew who is 9 years old is half black. It BURNS me to see and hear the judgement passed onto this child. He is only guilty of one thing in the end, being born. I stand up for him and fight rednecks for my nephew, not because of the color of his skin, but because he is my BLOOD. How dare anyone judge him? I have went to war for him and others, regardless of race, age, mental illness, etc. How dare anybody categorize me as a racist, just because of the color of my skin? Sad, just sad that this world will never change. This jerk who committed this horrible crime will pay his dues in prison be it beatings, rape, or death, rest assured it will be so. I just hope justice is served. My apologies if this offends anyone, just felt like something needed to be said.

    I’m skeptical about the story. Its one sided and lacking evidence, ground of belief this was a hate crime or a simple dispute / argumentative meeting or situation between opposing parties. The article state both were arguing back & forth before the spitting and slap occurred. What were they arguing about? What triggered Nicosia? From reading this article, I believe Nicosia was upset Judge Arnette Hubbard was smoking around him. Second hand smoke is far worse than a spit and a slap. Many people will not tolerate smokers smoking cigarettes around them.Judge Arnette Hubbard violated Nicosia rights by smoking cigarettes around him – second hand smoke. Until further detailed evidence, this was not a hate crime.

        Agree, Mr. Nicosia action is unacceptable and he will pay for his crime. However, Judge Arnette Hubbard should know better NOT to smoke around people if they’re uncomfortable with smoking. She wasn’t just smoking outside. She was smoking in a public area around people of the public. There are smoking rules & laws for public areas and buildings. Some have smoking areas or a rule not to smoke within a distance from the public building. Judge Arnette Hubbard was smoking in a city public area and violated Nicosia rights.

            Clean Indoor Air Ordinance (No Smoking: Including E-Cigarettes)

            Chicago has had its own Clean Indoor Air Ordinance since 1988, and this law has been strengthened over the years to better protect the health of all Chicagoans, as well as visitors to our city.

            In 2014, the Chicago Clean Indoor Air Act was updated to include e-cigarettes in the law. Chicago was the first of the 20 largest U.S. cities to propose legislation to include e-cigarettes in their clean indoor air law.

            Following Chicago’s lead, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco also introduced legislation to add e-cigarettes to their smokefree laws. All of these cities enacted their laws (along with Chicago) in April 2014. To date, more than 100 jurisdictions in the U.S. prohibit the use of e-cigarettes in areas where smoking combustile cigarettes is not allowed.

            In addition to ensuring everyone has the right to breathe clean indoor air, smoke-free laws create an environment that encourages smokers to quit and discourages kids from smoking. Legislation to include e-cigarettes in Chicago’s smoke-free law will preserve these benefits.

            The current and most recent version of the Chicago Clean Indoor Air Act prohibits smoking as well as “vaping” or the use of an e-cigarette, vape pen, or e-hookah in virtually all enclosed public places and enclosed places of employment.

            The places where smoking and the use of e-cigarettes is prohibited includes:

            bars and restaurants;
            shopping malls;
            recreational facilities including enclosed sports arenas, stadiums, swimming pools, ice and roller rinks, arcades and bowling alleys;
            concert halls;
            auditoriums;
            convention facilities;
            government buildings and vehicles;
            public transportation facilities;
            coin laundries;
            meeting rooms;
            private clubs;
            public restrooms;
            lobbies; reception areas, hallways and other common-use areas in public buildings, apartment buildings and condominium buildings.

            The ordinance also prohibits smoking within 15 feet of the entrance of these establishments.

            The ordinance exempts private residences (except residences that are used as day care facilities or any other business to which the public is invited), some hotel and motel sleeping rooms, retail tobacco stores and vape shops.

            Additionally, the law reminds owners and managers of buildings and other spaces not covered by the ordinance that they may declare their buildings and other spaces to be smoke-free; and it encourages them to do so.

            The ordinance is enforced by the Chicago Department of Public Health and the Chicago Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection.

    We need to back up on this guys, We cannot solve racism by being the very thing we despise, calling a black women Rosa Parks with the intent to insult her was very stupid because it would have the opposite effect. However just common decency and respect should be express by all, We may not like animals but we don’t go around mistreating them.We will never eradicate racism and If we keep pushing this, the raciest will only go underground,Lets focus on the act itself, Its shocking that a man would behave in this way. The act alone should be punish severely. This was a woman of mature age. We need to send a very big message to society that indecency will never be tolerated. Now if this was my mother , I would have thank him for calling her Rosa Parks, I would have pity him for the racist intent and for the assault, in short I may not have got the chance to thank him or pity him.

The article is one sided, not telling the reader the full detail about the altercation. Why did the altercation escalate way out of hand? Was it over Judge Arnette Hubbard smoking in a nonsmoking area and Nicosia took offense, dislike someone breaking the rules, smoking in a public area around people in the public? Who provoke the argument? Was Judge Arnette Hubbard equally guilty? I’m not going to pass judgement or assume Nicosia is a racist until more information, concrete evidence is provided. The information in the article is lacking substance. White guy assault black civil rights activist, elderly lady of 79 and Rosa Parks insult = smear media propaganda. Find out what’s hidden behind the curtain before passing judgement. This was NOT a hate crime. If this altercation is the way society view a hate crime, I guess we’re all guilty of a hate crime.

Bet he couldn’t tell, cuz’ Black don’t crack, but it’s sickening nonetheless. Furthermore, he called her, “Rosa Parks” – as if that’s an insult! Silly racist, Rosa was a heroine.
