    #BlackLivesMatter: At the Intersection of Social and Environmental Justice

    in Culture

    In a recent article in The Nation, Canadian author/activist Naomi Klein posed an important question/observation: "What does #BlackLivesMatter have to do with Climate Change?" (http://www.thenation.com/article/192801/what-does-blacklivesmatter-have-do-climate-change)


    On the next episode of PR 13:20, we'll look deeper into Klein's inquiry, and discuss the similarities revealed when juxtaposing the issues of social and environmental justice, the affects of rampant police brutality and unchecked global warming, and the communities and nations most affected. We'll also look at where these movements intersect and appear to be headed, and what actions can be taken to ensure that systemic change does occur, and soon, because our lives do depend upon it.

    Why Justice is needed in this society?

    in Politics

     


    A commonly accepted definition of Justice is that it is a moral standard of all men to one another requiring them to perform their social and moral as well as legal obligations to each other and to grant to each other all that fairly be granted.


    The importance and significance of justice can never be underestimated in the affairs of men. This is so because according to Pope Pius XII, just as, in fact, there can be no peace without order so there can be no order without justice.”


    Verily, justice occupies the highest place in the hierarchy of human values. Under the Old Testament particularly in the Book of Micah, the teachings of the prophets of Israel were summarized into one verse only: “to do justice; to show constant love and to live in humble fellowship with God.”


    Actually, justice is synonymous with righteousness in the sense that what is righteous is just and what is just is righteous.


    Indeed, it is important to be just for according to Confucius “heaven gives long and good life to the just.” His statement finds strong support in two biblical passages, to wit:


    “Righteous men – men of integrity – will live in this land of ours. But God will snatch wicked men from the land and pull sinners out of it like plants from the ground.” (Proverbs 2:21-22)


    “The Lord puts a curse on the house of wicked men and blesses the homes of the righteous.” (Proverbs 3:33

    Criminal Justice System vs. Crime

    in Politics

    Tonight we will discuss the Criminal Justice System and why it is not working for black people.  We will also discuss a case here in Inkster, Michigan concerning the beating of a 57yo African American Male below:


    Fighting back tears, a Detroit man and longtime auto worker with no criminal history, described how Inkster police officers dragged him from his car one night in January, choked him, beat him and Tasered him during a traffic stop that was caught on patrol car video.


    "He was beating me upside the head," Floyd Dent, 57, told a horde of reporters and TV crews during a press conference at his attorney's office Wednesday afternoon, as tears trickled his cheeks. "I was trying to protect my face with my right arm. I heard one of them say, 'tase the M...F. '"


    The Jan. 28 incident was caught on police video cameras and is making national news. It shows Inkster police pulling over Dent in his 2011 tan Cadillac near South River Park Drive and Inkster Drive shortly before 10 p.m. The two officers approach with their guns drawn. As Dent opens the door, they pull him out and shove him to the ground. Dent does not appear in the video to be resisting arrest.

    Take a Stand For Justice

    in Spirituality

    The taking of lives of the innoncent black youth in America must be brought to an end. Justice must be done in the courtrs of America. We should no longer tolerate a killer going free because he wears a badge. The use of any ammunition to prevent crime should be a last alternative and handled in such a way that the life of the person involved is considered and the action is done with all precautions to capture the victim withou the taking of its life. Those judges who speak out in their court rooms against this injustice must be recognized. We the American people must let them know that we stand with them for justice and they are not alone. If the one who is suppose to stand for justice has done an injustice and taken a life wrongfully, he must be made to pay the price. For he has crossed the line of justice and standing for the law and the people and taken the law into his own hands to do an injustice because of race or color. Thanks to the Judge in South Carolina and others who have rightfully prosecuted the killers of the innocent.
