The circumstances of Capt. Bruce Kevin Clark‘s death were not immediately available. The Pentagon said it was under investigation, and his brother-in-law said he didn’t have details.
“We are entrusting the military with investigating and with finding out what happened to Capt. Clark,” Bradley Taber-Thomas told The Associated Press.
Clark, a 43-year-old Army chief nurse, grew up in Michigan and lived previously in Spencerport, N.Y., a suburb of Rochester and his wife’s hometown.

Rapper Plies Releases Tribute Song about Trayvon Martin
via. Madame Noire
For the most part, I haven’t been a big fan of rapper Plies’s music. A majority of the time I can’t understand what he’s saying, but a lot of the time, I just think his lyrics are a bit too explicit for my tastes (“Bust It Baby, Pt.2″ for example), so when I heard he did a tribute video for Trayvon Martin, I was a little skeptical about what I would hear and see.

This week on #LFCRadio we are going to talk about Kids and Race.
We we’re inspired to do this show this week after watching a special program that the Anderson Cooper team did for CNN last weekend. It was called “Race Relations: Through The Eyes of a Child.”
There were children ranging in age from 6 to teens in high school. It showed the difference in how we perceive ourselves as blacks and whites. How black kids are thought to be mean or to be thieves, while white kids are generally thought to be empathetic and kind. It also showed how those thoughts are shaped at home, whether the parents want to own up to it or not. There were disheartening stereotypes coming from kids who were white and black. Elementary aged to the teenagers.
Check out the video, if you missed it live, and join us tonight. Our guest will be Dr. JeffriAnne Wilder. She specializes in race and colorism.
