King’s Dream at 50: A Report Card

Housing Desegregation: D

Markedly better than 50 years ago, but America still remains highly segregated by race. About 90% of suburban whites, for example, live in places that are less than 1% black. Racial steering is still widely practised despite being outlawed.

Discrimination: D

Despite affirmative action and so on, blacks are still about twice as likely to be out of work as whites. If you take education into account, the rate is 1.53 to 1.73 times higher. Blacks have to stay in school about two years longer to make the same money as a white person.

Why do liberals take Alec Baldwin seriously?

Why is it that Baldwin, perpetually in the conversation around New York City municipal races (if inserted there by himself or family members), is able to entirely transcend a violent, misogynist, gay-baiting reputation, when other stars can’t manage it? And why is it that liberals — those folks who theoretically ought to be most concerned with combating hurtful language — are most enthralled by the star?

Don’t be glad Ariel Castro is dead

On Tuesday evening, Ariel Castro – the man who in July was sentenced to life plus 1,000 years in prison in connection with the abductions and rapes of three Cleveland women – was found hanging from a bed sheet in his cell. The circumstances of Castro’s death raise a number of questions – though the 53 year-old was not on suicide watch, he was in protective custody. Ohio corrections spokeswoman JoEllen Smith told reporters Tuesday that Castro had been “in a cell by himself,” with guards required to check in on him “every 30 minutes at staggered intervals.” Smith says, “A thorough review of this incident is under way.”

The Washington Redskins’ Stubborn Racism

A lot will have changed about professional football when the NFL kicks off its new season this week. There will be harsher penalties to help curb some of the game’s most severe injuries, a newly minted settlement to help aging and injured players dealing with brain damage after years of playing football, and, if Sports Illustrated is to be believed, a new breed of running quarterback that will usher the game into unchartered new territory. But one thing that will remain unchanged: Washington, D.C.’s, football team is still called the “Redskins.”

“GhettoTracker.com”: Technology, Race, and Place

The “very real and serious” function of the site can only be understood within the context of the (imagined) white family who would be threatened by a “ghetto.” Yet, the site’s supposed “ghettos” aren’t identified based on actual crime statistics, or any data, but rather they are determined by the site’s users and delineated by their prejudices. Yet, when people responded negatively to the site, the creator was reportedly “surprised.”

  1. It makes no sense. They brought us over here when we asked for no part in this all. Now we are forced to make their dollar to live. They are not going to give us money so we can all go back to Africa. Yet, they tell us to go back to Africa. Then, they go on about how our houses were built. I like our houses. They do not hear how narcissitic they sound. They need to work on themselves for a better tomorrow. They don’t want to. They are African, too. They just left to go to the Caucasus mountains. We have no money to go Africa with. We won’t have any money unless we ignore everything they have put us through and continue to. We would be/ still are slaves like we were then. White men want only black women working for them. If a black man works for white men, they will put him through a lot. We are forced to make their dollar. Many of us do not or will not chance starting a business. Because we are where we are economically, not all of us can start a business. Who knows what whites want to do to our businesses over here? They tell us that they don’t want a race war. They say they know they would win the race war easily. Because we cannot live in Africa, we try to live in America. We cannot do that because these albinos are trying to ignore that they are albinos. We are unfortunately “in their picture”. So, they call us “n-words” to try and get us to go away so they can practice “albino self-love”. Some of our ancestors committed suicide due to all of the injustice and lack of unity with their people. Suicide is not the way. Not many of them commit suicide either in less they are really going through something. I have heard white people say, “I want to exist”.Who knows what to do in all of this? I hate that some of us just give up and call this “life”. I am sure that many of our people do not want to get violent like they are with us for justice. So much for being peaceful when we have children like Donald ‘DJ’ Maiden being shot in the face. Caucasians are not going to take their guns away from themselves. What can we do? I just pray to Jah. I ask myself, “Why does it have to be this way?”

      1. @Brothawolf

        It truly stinks being the most popular race by demand. We are always going to go through something.

  2. We should not trust these Neanderthals no matter how nice they appear to you. We need to separate from these people but I know we can’t ever separate from them because they are so obsessed with us.

    But I will tell you this: integration was the death of Black people in AmeriKKKlan.

  3. Yt people are the delieverers of death. That appears to be their purpose. They harm everything. They appear to violent and sinister during every hour of everyday. When they are not harming people with their own violence, they are bringing on stress.

      1. I don’t think they realize how harmful their inventions are to the environment, either. It pains me to see our people “living” like them. The bar was not meant for us.
