Petition to change School’s Name

Would this be a good reason to change the name of a school? What do you think?

Do hate groups have rights?

A racist and a white supremacist group want to live in a town with a population of less than 100, in Leith, North Dakota. Do they have a right to do so?  The Lakota are protesting, as are Anti hate groups. What do you think?

Billions are wasted on racially biased arrests

ACLU findings suggested that blacks are disportionately arrested and jailed in America.

Students Stand up Against Discrimination

Chi Omega members stand against discrimination and the University of Alabama Listens!

The Muslims are Coming

Using Comedy to fight stereotypes of Muslims.  Humor as a form of healing.

Racists reactions follows the New Miss America Contest!

America is a diverse nation! It is time to acknowledge this fact. It is what makes this nation “Ameri-somos!” Which group will some go after next? The Wisians! Yes, the Wisians have taught us much about ourselves.  Wisians, a made up group used in a survey, who managed to get better ratings than some of own members of a diversity society.

We can’t erase a legacy of Racism

Race baiting(ers)! Haters!Birthers! And then those who say, “get over it” racism does not exist today.  Well, others say, “racism” is now directed at “white    people!”  It is rather difficult for many whose ancestors were slaves, were lynched, denied the basic right to go to school, and called “boy”‘ to “get over it!”  Like it or not racism does exist. It may be disguised under a different name, but it is present. It may be more covert, but it is present.

I fear that “racism” is not limited only to white on black, Latino, Asian, Muslim, Catholic, Protestants. We have learned well how to hate each other, lessons that different groups in this country  learned from was done to them.  I just hope, that we don’t allow “racism against whites” to floursih  to the levels that White America  allowed racism against some many other groups  to reach.

In the meantime let’s consider the following examples, of what White America, let happen.

1. Indians killed and/or removed from their lands

2. Slaves bought and sold at willlynchings

3. Mexicans (legally living on Mexican land) treated like dogs, some killed as well

4.  Over 100,000 Japanese, (some Italians/Germans) put into concentration camps during WWII

5.  Asians/Blacks forbidden to marry in some states

6.  Housing, employment, health, education, transportation discrimination and even segregated cementaries

7.  Segregated fighting units

Yep, it is not easy to break the “chains of racism, discrimination, slavery!” But, what do you think? Do you have positive examples of how whole communities stood up against the above forms of oppresion?  Please share, if you have them.

In the meantime, see how these  companies, or their predecesors profited from Slavery and amassed great fortunes that continue to this day.
