Time for a Game Change In America— Out with the Protests & Marches – By Yvonne Sam

Time for a Game Change In America— Out with the Protests & Marches

By Yvonne Sam

Law enforcement continues the inordinate use of lethal force against people of color. A cure is urgently needed, not a diagnosis.

History has proven to be the most astute educator.   It is now absolutely clear that the American justice system will give blacks as much justice as a wolf would give to a flock of sheep.  Like the wolf, the system has completely devoured Blacks. Then again, what do Blacks expect now if they were not even considered by the initial designers of America’s system of jurisprudence?    Continue reading

Africa: political map – click to enlarge

 A recent report published by a coalition of African and British social justice organizations lays bare the truth that foreign corporations and wealthy governments continue to profit from the looting of the world’s most impoverished continent.

In 2015, the year the most recent data is available, African nations received $162 billion in aid, loans, and remittances. At the same time, $203 billion was taken from these nations through resource extraction, debt payments, and illegal logging and fishing.      Continue reading

GUYANA: Political Purgatory – By Verian Mentis-Barker

Parking Meter protest

It could easily be Political Purgatory…except that there is more repetition than expiation of sins.

The inerrant rhythm with which this new Administration is repeating the scandals and infractions of the previous  one gives the sense that this was all they learned – some say all they were waiting for– as they sat on the sidelines in opposition for twenty three years.

The prorogation and subsequent election in 2015 was a gift from political heaven and voters fed up with People’s Progressive Party politicians’ misuse of public office made the trek to the polls to eject them.    Continue reading

What if Donald Trump’s color was on the other skin? Would he still be in? – By Yvonne Sam

What if Donald Trump’s color was on the other skin? Would he still be in?

By Yvonne Sam

The American elections came to a close last November, and the American populace got the president they reserved and deserved. Donald John Trump became the 45th President of the United States of America. From his inauguration on January 20, 2017 to present date, it has become obvious that his catapulted admission into the presidential class has been fraught with more peril and consequences to the White House than anything else that has affected that institution for centuries.

After being a vicarious spectator to the endless contentious issues relative to him, I have been forced to mentally pose one question,— plainly and simply put, “What if the current president as the White House Resident was black?  Seriously, how long would he last?   Continue reading

Manchester, Berlin, Paris, Nice, London, New York: Passports and IDs Mysteriously Discovered

Manchester, Berlin, Paris, Nice, London, New York: Passports and IDs Mysteriously Discovered in the Wake of Terror Attacks
By Prof Michel Chossudovsky
Global Research, May 27, 2017

This article reviews the “mysterious” phenomenon of IDs and Passports of terror suspects routinely discovered (often in the rubble) in the wake of a terrorist attack.In most cases the alleged suspect was known to the authorities.

Is there a pattern?  The ID papers of the suspect are often left behind, discovered by police in the wake of a terrorist attack.

According to government and media reports, the suspects are without exception linked to an Al Qaeda affiliated entity.

None of these terror suspects survived. Dead men do not talk.

In the case of the tragic events in Manchester, the bankcard of the alleged suicide bomber Salman Abedi was found in his pocket in the wake of the explosion.       Continue reading

Why Namibian chiefs are taking Germany to court – The Economist explains

Why Namibian chiefs are taking Germany to court

The Herero and Nama peoples are seeking reparations for the 20th century’s first genocide

IN 1904 the Herero people of modern-day Namibia rose up against German colonists, who had seized and settled much of their land. The response of the German army, imbued with racist ideology, was to annihilate them. “Within the German borders every Herero, with or without a gun, with or without cattle, will be shot,” ordered General Lothar von Trotha, its commander. Some Herero died at the hands of Trotha’s soldiers; many more perished after being pushed into the desert or herded into concentration camps.    Continue reading

Motherhood and Marginalization: The Oppressive History of the Birth Industry

Motherhood and Marginalization: The Oppressive History of the Birth Industry

To say that the birth industry is mostly white would be an extreme understatement. Less than 4 percent of registered nurse midwives are African American, around 1 percent are of Asian descent and less than 1 percent are Latina according to a recent survey. A low level of representation is an issue in many industries, but in the birth world it is particularly problematic. The pervasive whiteness of the birth industry leads to culturally incompetent care that fuels the negative outcomes that women of color face both directly and indirectly.     Continue reading

Immigration: A toxic issue until Britain faces up to its colonial past- David Wearing

Immigration will remain a toxic issue until Britain faces up to its colonial past- David Wearing

Emmanuel Macron has condemned France’s behaviour in Algeria. Until Britain is similarly honest about its history, we will still think in terms of “us” and “them”.

Both Ukip and Theresa May trumpeted their anti-immigrant credentials yesterday, with fresh and not-so-fresh policies for the election. Hostility to foreigners is now an established theme in the UK’s political discourse, partly because it has deep cultural roots. But there may be something we can learn from Emmanuel Macron about how this problem can be addressed.    Continue reading

Opinion: Louis Farrakhan Just Got an Invite to the White House, So Where’s the Outrage?

Opinion:  Louis Farrakhan Just Got an Invite to the White House, So Where’s the Outrage? 

Louis Farrakhan

White House staffer Omarosa Manigault reached out to the anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader, but most Jewish groups have been deafeningly silent in response. It’s a startling double standard compared to their treatment of Keith Ellison

Allison Kaplan Sommer | Haaretz

The news may have been buried under the vast pile of developments in Trump World over the weekend (health care, religious liberty, overseas trip, Ivanka’s book and Kushner’s conflict of interest, for starters), but the resounding silence by the Republican noise machine and mainstream Jewish community following White House staffer Omarosa Manigault’s friendly remarks and outreach to anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan still spoke volumes.    Continue reading
