This week's theme will look at the sociological institutions impacting the black community. Suppositions abound decrying the role of poverty negatively impacting the black community. This position is contrary to historical record which documents the longeivity and vitality of black families. Clearly, a philosophical view of family has occurred and the source of this perception continues to be debated today. Ostensibly, the question arises: to what extent is this decline of this "noble institution" self- inflicted? This supposition suggests the problem arises from an inabilty of black families to emulate the American way, instead adopt practices which are not only mal-adoptive but born fron indigenous practices from the mother-land. In order to better test this hypothesis, we will employ various sociological models which will address this specific notion. In addition, we will revisit the case of Sandra Bland. New information will provide clarity on the inner working of the criminal justice system and the reason why reform is relatively easy compared to actual implementation. We will also look at the intricate world of propaganda and the role the government play in utilizing propaganda on the American people.Government  operations, by statue, are intended for foreign governments. That being the case, why would the CIA operate within the borders of the U.S The depth and scope of these operations may surprise you: the level of planning intriguing and the players involved will enrage you. Also, we will look at the case of Saleh vs. George Bush. This case will look at a single Iraqi mother who is undertaking what has thus far been impossible- sue the U.S government for violation of international law and  crimes of aggression. Unlike previous attempts to bring U.S to justice, this case has the benefit of reports out of England corroborating Saleh's claims. The Chilcot report chronicles the planning of illegal war.
