A recipe for disaster: Racism within the APD is still present among some of our police officers. When three young men get targeted, two white and one black, and the black man is thrown to ground after ordering wings, arrested, taken to jail, and the white men, who are in possession of a hand gun and marijuana, are told to stay away from ” these niggers” and go home…THAT IS NOT RIGHT! These events are true… In December of 2012, three young men were preparing for a local event in downtown Atlanta Georgia. Two of the men were Caucasian and the other an Afrikan, in America. The one Caucasian man was out of Miami, the other Caucasian man was out of Alabama, who is also the business partner of the Afrikan man, who is an Atlanta resident. The three men traveled in a black Mercedes truck, the Caucasian man from Miami driving, on a December evening, passing out fliers for their upcoming event. The Afrikan man noticed that the man from Miami had a hand gun and marijuana in the truck. He informed him that he could not be driving around with him while having possession of these items. He exclaimed, “You cannot do that here, Atlanta police don’t play”. The man from Miami responded, “Man, I’m white”. The Afrikan man then asked the man from Miami to take him home, but to first stop by a an establishment that sold wings. Once arriving, the Afrikan man got out of the truck and went to order his wings. As he exited, to wait for his order, while walking back to the truck, a team of police officers (possible SWAT) tackled the Afrikan man to the ground. He Afrikan man asked the officers what he did wrong, that he was just ordering wings. After checking the Afrikan man’s pockets and finding a roach, the officers told him that he was being arrested for having the roach. THEY NEVER READ HIM ANY “RIGHTS”. Once the officers had the Afrikan in the patrol vehicle they spoke briefly with the two Caucasian men, not checking them or their vehicle, and told them to stay away from the niggers, that they were taking them ALL down! Then they told them to go back to Miami. How are our young people ever going to trust the system when their are officers in authority such as these? Who is going to arrest the officers for such an injustice? Once the damage is done, it can’t be undone… oh, maybe an apology may be presented, after the time spent going to court, missing work, losing job, etc. Racism is still in existence, but how should it be addressed? If you have a comment, please post. If you would like to be a part of a solution and have a way you can help this young Afrikan man, even if it is just a word of encouragement… leave your contact information and someone will be in touch with you. The next court date is June 3, 2013.

Greetings Merchants, Shoppers, and Advertisers!


Yeside’s Pyramid Mall Company, known as YPM Company, was conceived in 1907, became vision in 2010, and introduced in 2012.

YPM Company was founded by Mr. Freeman Watson III, born and raised in Arizona. At a very young age of twelve his family’s business collapsed due to the lack of enough marketing and advertising. Realizing, from his  parent’s experience, that marketing and advertising was the most costly  expense of a business, and that because the larger corporations had an  advantage, they were more productive and became more successful, because  they could afford the high costs of advertising.  Mr. Freeman never  forgot that feeling of insecurity and vowed that he would one day make a  difference, by making marketing and advertising affordable for the  small business… and thus became YPM Company.

While facing the  challenges of creating new ideas and ways to help the small business  owner tell the world about their business, Mr. Watson also realized the  importance of connecting business owners, helping them to realize the  importance of patronizing one another. He soon formed YPM Small Business  Networking Events and an online Bartering Forum. Mr. Watson found these  to be vital tools in increasing the small business profits and customer  base, whether it be in sales or service.
