  • Garveyite" nor "Pan Africanist" world views exist among mainstream-oriented African Americans. While Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice and Eric Holder are recognized as African American leaders, in reality their roles involve their maintaining America's imperialist status across the world. For many years African-American culture developed separately from mainstream American culture, both because of slavery and the persistence of racial discrimination in America. Today, African- American culture is accepted as subordinate to that of the American Establishment and/or Barack's Post-racial society. Too often Black Americans have depended on government to solve their problems and accept solutions developed by people with "Mainstream mindsets". [Obama]'s "static hold Presidency" may prove advan...

  • Such an event has occurred, but its full effect has not yet fully impregnated the psyche of blacks. The general response to the presidential candidacy of Barack Obama has established that racial discrimination in America has certainly ameliorated. Whether Obama wins or loses is not the issue. When thousands of whites turn out for his campaign appearances and stand in the rain, it is dear that many people consider Obama a serious contender for the Oval Office. Earlier campaigns of black presidential candidates made a political statement, but Obama's campaign is seriously directed toward victory in 2008. With racial hostility declining in America, the black leadership seems not to have answered the question, "Has racial discrimination declined enough so that African Americans are able to ...

  • You've got to have fire in your belly, a belief in humanity, perseverance and a defiance of death," wrote the brilliant, militant newspaper publisher [William Monroe Trotter], in the first edition of The Boston Guardian, which he founded in 1901. Trotter was indeed a firebrand. On one such occasion, in 1915, he was jailed for leading a protest against D.W. Griffith's racist film "Birth of a Nation." His penchant for cooking as a young lad, served him well in later years. In 1919, Trotter out maneuvered the State Department when he traveled to Europe to address the Paris Peace Conference on plans for a formidable attack on racial discrimination in America. The State Department blocked Trotter's effort to go abroad by denying him a passport. Trotter outwitted the authorities by securing ...

  • Here's what "The Presumption of Guilt" isn't. It's not really a book about the ill-advised arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. last July. That incident, which dominates only a couple of chapters here, serves as a jumping-off point for a lengthy discourse about racial discrimination against African-Americans -- even in present-day America.

  • The election of Deval Patrick as governor and the candidacy of Barack Obama for president have enhanced the status of blacks in America. Despite the continued existence of racial discrimination in some quarters, Patrick was able to win election in a state with a small black population. Similarly, Obama has been able to run a credible presidential campaign, and has generated support even in areas of the old Confederacy.

  • I. Introduction The trial of Mumia Abu-Jamal, an African-American, for murder demonstrates how pernicious death qualification can be for minority prospective jurors.1 In Philadelphia, which at that time had a population that was forty-four percent African-American, the prosecutor was successful in striking twenty African-Americans from the venire using death qualification.2 The prosecutor then used his peremptory challenges to strike another eleven African-American prospective jurors who had not expressed any opposition to the death penalty, resulting in a jury that did not have any African- American members.3 Prosecutors in general have been known to utilize the death qualification process to produce a jury they believe is more favorable to the state.4 Death qualification has been ...

  • For decades many of us have been wondering why the NAACP has so little interest in, well, the problems that plague the "CP" in question, such as an AIDS epidemic and crippling high school dropout rates. Chairman Julian Bond, kicking off the NAACP's annual convention Sunday, actually ventured an answer. In between his usual snarling gnashes at the Bush Administration, Bond claimed that the NAACP doesn't go in for "social services" because it would mean turning away from that ever-looming monster, racism. Fighting racial discrimination" is what black America needed most in the days of official segregation and open bigotry. The race issues that are important today do not lend themselves to charismatic indignation: the Earned Income Tax Credit will never inspire sonorous oratory. But if ch...

  • LOS ANGELES, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- With signs that the worst recession in eighty years may be nearing an end, a panel of more than 3,000 college-educated African-American consumers and workers overwhelmingly agreed (90.1%) that creating jobs is more important than reducing the deficit, according to the TheLoop21.com's 2010 Economic Survey of Black America. According to the survey, the biggest threats to African-American job security are the current recession and racial discrimination in the workplace, not immigration. The findings from the "2010 Economic Survey of Black America", which took place from April 9 through April 23, reflect the collective views of thousands of Black consumers and workers on some of the most controversial issues of the day. TheLoop21.com commissioned the large...

  • JACKSON, Miss. - A construction company with black ownership has filed a federal civil lawsuit against Gov. Haley Barbour, employees of the Mississippi Development Authority and Toyota of North America claiming racial discrimination in the building of a new plant in northeast Mississippi. The owners of Fish & Fisher, Jacqueline Williams and Renna Fisher, say Barbour, MDA and the car company acted in concert to bar them from participating in what they claim was a whites-only bid process for site preparation.
