What they do not teach you about anti-racism at American high school

America has a proud history of anti-racism – like the Declaration of Independence, abolitionists, Nat Turner, the Underground Railroad, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, John Brown, Abraham Lincoln, the civil war, the Gettysburg Address, Emancipation, the Radical Republicans, Reconstruction, Ida B. Wells, Thurgood Marshall, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr, the civil rights movement, Malcolm X, the Black Panthers, Angela Davis and so much else.

But since 1890 it has been played down or lied about in American high school history books.


DC Comics Hires Homophobic Sci-Fi Author Orson Scott Card To Pen New Superman Series

DC Comics just announced a digital-first series called the Adventures of Superman this week, which is launching in April, Comics Alliance reports:

Among those contributing are ComicsAlliance favorites Jeff Parker (Bucko, Red She-Hulk) and Chris Samnee (Daredevil, The Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom), who will collaborate on a story about Superman’s first encounter with Lex Luthor. But before that, Adventures of Superman begins with a two-part story written by popular novelist Orson Scott Card (Ender’s Game) and drawn by the great Chris Sprouse and Karl Story

Unfortunately, for DC Comics, Card is a well-known homophobe and anti-gay activist who in 2008 called for the overthrow of government if Prop 8 fails.

  1. The Christopher Dorner incident is just tragic on so many levels. I don’t think he started out as a bad guy. But the corrupt LAPD probably drove this brother to go rouge. I feel he probably tried to go through all the proper channel only to come to a dead end in the resolution of his problems there. I don’t trust the news media and they are playing into the dangerous black brute sterotype. I even heard on one news segment Dorner being described as burly. Burly that’s how they would described a black man that they find frightening and meanacing. He is a dead man anyway this thing turns out.

  2. I don’t approve of killing inocent people but i feel he was pushed to his wits end and just snapped. This whole thing is just tragic and sad.
