Most people in Texas own guns and have guns in their homes.  Do the Police have the power to go in and kill every legal gun owner in the State? If it is legal to own guns the police should not be allowed to kill someone who has guns in their house, especially in the NRA State of Texas. Besides that they lied and said she pointed a gun at them. That is crazy!

The White man stole Africa's Religion and rewrote it for his benefit. The Ethopians were the first Jews and the first to convert to Christiana. That is before Rome stole the Religion and used their Bishops to create a religion fine tuned to Europeans. They removed books of the Bible which referred to Africa, and whitened Christ. The original Jews were from Beta Israel or Ethiopian Jews. The European Jews who intermixed with Europeans are  for the most part Jacobites (converts), yet they have co opted the religion and are racist against the Ethiopian Jews. In Christ day Ethiopia included, Sudan, Cush, Chad, and parts of Libya.

+Charles Salter You are just repeating what you have been told, but the historical evidence proves you wrong. Ethopia and Egypt are in Africa and the Jews who were in Africa came out of Ethiopa (whose kingdom included Sudan, Cush, Chad, and parts of Libya). You believe the Queen of Sheba was white while all evidence points to her being African.  The Beta Israel Jews are descendants of King David & Solomon.  See if you can follow this!  "The Beta Yisrael are perhaps the best known black Jewish sect in the world. Despite their ancient and well-documented history, they, like all black communities, have had their historical connections to Judaism challenged, the validity of their religious practice scrutinized, and their acceptance within the white Jewish world hindered. When the Ethiopians left the cultural isolation of their remote villages, they entered a world prefigured by race. They soon learned that their Jewish heritage was not the only thing that made them �Falasha,� (outsiders). For the black Jews of America, the existence of Ethiopian Jews was living proof that black people have a connection to Judaism that is as old as any claimed by Europeans.
They called themselves Beta Yisrael because for centuries they believed that they were the last remnant of the ancient Israelites. In fact, in the nineteenth century when a French linguist named Joseph Halevy reached one of their villages on a mission from the Alliance Israelite Universelle, they did not believe that he, the European, could be a Jew. As Halevy described it, the Ethiopians said �What!�You a Falahsa! A white Falasha! You are laughing at us. Are there any white Falashas?�[1] Imagine the irony of that moment: black Jews questioning the Jewishness of white Jews; and the white Jew trying to convince them of his authenticity. The levity of that scene is surpassed by a far more serious point: when different Jewish communities come together, one will usually occupy the superior position; the one of dominance, authority, and control. Not surprisingly, the dominant group is in a position to judge the subordinate. That is an exercise of power, and power underlies all of these relationships.
Dominance or power in this context is established by a combination of any or all of these factors: (1) numeric superiority, (2) access to wealth, (3) primo-occupancy; i.e. the act of being there first, (4) higher social status (this could be based on a privilege afforded one Jewish group by a Christian or Muslim authority that is more power than either Jewish group (5) racial or ethnic superiority (this would be true in racialized societies of the West and was evident in the interaction of Ashkenazim  and Sephardim in Europe and Israel).
The Beta Israel maintain that their ancestors were descended from King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. That union produced a child called Menileck (in Hebrew Mem Meleck literally means from king). This child was then trained by the wise men of Solomons court. They further assert that when Menileck left Jerusalem with a large retinue of Israelite nobles for Ethiopia they took with them the Ark of the Covenant that God gave to Moses on Mt. Sinai. The Ethiopian claim is based on oral history that has been passed down from generation to generation by their elders, scholars called Dabtaras, and their priests, called  Kahens (an Amharic word linguistically similar to the Hebrew word for priest, Kohen).[2] The written account of ancient Ethiopian history is known as the Kebra Nagast and it corroborates in even greater detail what the Beta Israel have always affirmed. Moreover, the Biblical record tends to substantiate their claim. It vividly describes the Queen of Sheba arriving in Jerusalem with a large entourage shortly after the completion of the temple. She is granted an audience with the king, they engage in a colloquy in which the queen is impressed with his Solomonic wisdom to the point where there was no more spirit left in her.And King Solomon gave the queen of Sheba all she desired, whatever she asked, in addition to all that he gave her of his royal bounty." You Shall Know the Truth and the Truth will set you free!
