    O Ye Drybones : government sponsored segregation THE KERNER COMMISSION

    in Current Events

    In Baltimore in 1910, a black Yale law school graduate purchased a home in a previously all-white neighborhood,The Baltimore city government reacted by restricting African Americans to designated blocks. Explaining the policy, Baltimore’s mayor proclaimed, “Blacks should be quarantined in isolated slums in order to reduce the incidence of civil disturbance, to prevent the spread of communicable disease into the nearby White neighborhoods, and to protect property values among the White majority.”Thus began a century of federal, state, and local policies to quarantine Baltimore’s black population in isolated slums—policies that continue to the present day.In 1968, following hundreds of similar riots nationwide, a commission appointed by President Lyndon Johnson concluded that “[o]ur nation is moving toward two societies, one black, one white—separate and unequal” and that “[s]egregation and poverty have created in the racial ghetto a destructive environment totally unknown to most white Americans.” The Kerner Commission (headed by Illinois Governor Otto Kerner) added that “[w]hat white Americans have never fully understood—but what the Negro can never forget—is that white society is deeply implicated in the ghetto. White institutions created it, white institutions maintain it, and white society condones it.”When the Kerner Commission blamed “white society” and “white institutions,” it employed euphemisms to avoid naming the culprits everyone knew at the time. It was not a vague white society that created ghettos but government—federal, state, and local.In 1917, the U.S. Supreme Court found ordinances like Baltimore’s 1910 segregation rule unconstitutional, not because they abridged African Americans’ rights to live where they could afford, but because they restricted the property rights of (white) homeowners to sell to whomever.

    Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    On this episode of Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates, we discuss the most important issues facing the working class. We'll discuss the U.S. flights over China. Why is the U.S. deliberately trying to provoke China; some have suggested insane brinkmanship on the part of the U.S. Is this part of a larger strategy?


    It's been documented that one African American is killed by the police every 28 hours. Unfortunately, virtually no police officers are held accountable. The latest example of this is the acquittal of a white Cleveland police officer who shot and killed an African American couple. Do black lives matter in the capitalist cystem?


    Michael Parenti of the Greanville Post wrote an article in defense of existing socialism and socialism of the past. We'll discuss the importance of the article and the implications for the future. http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.greanvillepost.com%2F2015%2F05%2F23%2Fleft-anticommunism-the-unkindest-cut%2F&h=0AQFIdGMH


    Also, it was revealed last week through a FOIA lawsuit that the U.S., Saudi Arabi and other allies supported the creation of the Islamic State. Was this a deliberate act to create further military action in Syria and elsewhere?

    in Politics

    The News Media is responsible for the majority of election fraud  today!


    Take a few minutes to think about it.....

    The News Media is controlled by the Political Establishment
    The News Media is controlled by Special Interest Money
    The News Media decides how much air time they will give to candidates
    The News Media manipulates the debates
    The News Media slants their reporting of key Election Issues

    Special- UK General Election 2015

    in Current Events

    We will take a look at the results of Great Britain's 2015 General Election, which is widely expected to result in a "hung" Parliament where no party commands a majority.  The projected strength of the Scottish Nationalist Party, which wants independence for Scotland and an explicitly socialist agenda, will greatly complicate the task of forming a government.  The UK Independence Party is also expected to have a good night.  It draws much of its support from the Conservatives, but has had success in Labour constituencies as well. We will have a live feeds from the UK, live chat and live phones!

    A Call to Action - Part 2

    in Christianity

    We have two options as we look around and see the darkness overwhelming our nation.  We can sit back and wait for destruction or we can rise up and confront the darkness.  If we decide to stand, and having done all to stand, we must contend for the faith once delivered unto the saints.  If we choose this day to serve the Lord our God, we must submit ourselves unto His way, His methods and His agency.  This battle cannot be won if we continue to fight according the commnadments and traditions of men.  To continue this work of the flesh will only aid our enemies in the destruction of the Church, the family and our nation.


    In this episode of Standing Firm, we will discuss where to begin in this call for reformation.  Tune in this Friday at 12:00 pm eastern time as we call the saints of God to man their battle stations.


    We will also announce a new project from Covenant Commission and Reformed Church of the Holy Trinity.  Coming this October — RP15.  For more information visit www.reformedconference.com

    In The Gap 'The Commission is Greater than the Committed Part 3' May 20, 2015

    in Lifestyle

    General Description:


    'In the GAP', is a weekly hour of powerful global prayer aimed at immersing ourselves in the Spirit and letting God direct our attention to current areas of practical need. Together, we can bridge 'gaps' and build 'hedges' here on earth from the heavenly dimension. Join us in an effort to do more than talk about problems or pretend they don't exist! Jesus is still the answer to the pressing conditions and critical world affairs we all face - so lets 'BE' His Body!  


    Specific Episode: The Commission is Greater than the Committed Part 3


    In this episode, Rocky takes another look at the scope of the Commission Jesus Called His followers to fulfill.  We are first called BY the Lord, then TO the Lord and finally FOR the Lord.  His "Great Commission" encompasses all those elements - which is why He entrusts His own Name to the Church.  Rocky makes the case for committing to what has been committed to you.  As great as Jesus is, its the least we can do!
