    Mr Jim Crow

    in Politics

    Election officials in 27 states, most of them Republicans, have launched a program that threatens a massive purge of voters from the rolls. Millions, especially black, Hispanic and Asian-American voters, are at risk. At the heart of this voter-roll scrub is the Interstate Crosscheck program, which has generated a master list of nearly 7 million names.Crosscheck list of suspected double voters has been compiled by matching names from roughly 110 million voter records from participating states.The three states’ lists are heavily weighted with names such as Jackson, Garcia, Patel and Kim — ones common among minorities, who vote overwhelmingly Democratic. Indeed, fully 1 in 7 African-Americans in those 27 states.“It’s Jim Crow all over again,” says the Rev. Joseph Lowery, who cofounded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference with Martin Luther King Jr  Al Jazeera America.

    The New Jim Crow: Law Illiteracy

    in Real Estate

    The new Jim Crow has nothing to do with "race" or  the "sex" of a person...........the new Jim Crow to a very high degree is "Law Illiteracy". Today on "It's My House" we shall discuss how being illiterate in "basic law" can lead to many problems including incarseration, evictions, forclosure, divorces, etc. etc.


    Education is power and we shall give people the basics on what they need to do to empower themselves to reverse any negative situation that they may be involved in.

    The Same Old Jim Crow Mass Incarceration Police Murders...,

    in History

    EXCERCISE YOUR RIGHTS! GET OUT AND VOTE 


    Is there a New Jim Crow or is it the same old Jim Crow? This show will discuss the issue of Mass Incarcaration and the Murder of Black and Brown Males by Law Enforcement. 


    The incarceration rates disproportionately impact men of color: 1 in every 15 African American men and 1 in every 36 Hispanic men are incarcerated in comparison to 1 in every 106 white men. 2. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, one in three black men can expect to go to prison in their lifetime.


    Does that mean White Males committ less crime? Statistically White Males are the most likely to commit rape, Mass Murder, Spree Killings, and Serial Killings. The average White Serial Killer is allowed to repeatedly commit crimes such as rape and murder before being, "Profiled."  By the time they became sloopy they are old and have repeatedly killed over a span of years. With African American Males they are Profiled before every committing a crime. Often they are shot and killed by Police on, "Suspicion" of a crime such as Robbery. 


    This past week a white male, Eric Frein who shot two deputies, killing one was captured in Pennsylvania alive. Had that been a black male they would have went into his neighborhood and anywhere his relatives lived. They would have harrassed every relative he had and arrested them, and any black mail who fit the, "Profile."  


    We have a call in guest, Isabelle Gravenstein. She is working with a young man who has been sentenced to 20 years to life for a crime he did not commit. This is a similar issue to my son Kerry Baxter Senior who is serving 66 years to life for a crime he did not commit. The cold part is they know these men are innocent but any old Black Man Will Do! The Same Old Jim Crow! 


    Tune in and listen up!

    The New Jim Crow RadioBlog, Episode 1: Introduction

    in Books

    Many members and friends of Unitarian Universalist congregations are reading The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander, the current Common Read of the Unitarian Universalist Association. Over the course of eight episodes, this radioblog is a chapter-by-chapter exploration of the themes of the book, from the perspectives of scholars, actvists, lawyers and people of faith grappling with Alexander's central message: "By targeting black men through the War on Drugs and decimating communities of color, the U.S. criminal justice system functions as a contemporary system of racial control -- relegating milions to permanent second-class status -- even as it formally adheres to the principle of colorblindness."
    The hosts for the New Jim Crow Radioblog are Carlton Elliott Smith, one of the ministers of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington (VA), and Alex Boston, one of its members. 
    The New Jim Crow RadioBlog is brought to you by the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington (VA), Davies Memorial Unitarian Universalist Church (Camp Springs, MD), Accotink Unitarian Universalist Church (Burke, VA), All Souls Church, Unitarian (Wash., DC), and the First Unitarian Church of Baltimore.

    in Books

    "The Cruel Hand" (Chapter 4 in The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander) considers how the criminal justice system operates once a prisoner is released.

    Kate Wolfson of the Safe and Sound Campaign. Kate is currently working on the Public Safety Compact, a re-entry program in Baltimore providing substance abuse treatment and job services. www.safeandsound.org.

    The New Jim Crow RadioBlog, Episode 7: "The Fire This Time"

    in Books

    "Chapter 6: The Fire This Time raises the issue of present and future approaches to dealing with the New Jim Crow crisis. The chapter's title is based on James Baldwin's seminal forewarning The Fire Next Time. Alexander believes that pushing reforms through a broad-based social coalition, as has been done in the past, while possibly helpful, will not be enough, because "a new system of racialized social control" will eventually appear, assuming forms impossible to predict now. If a movement emerges to confront mass incarceration, it will have to cure the underlying causes and ills in society at large, which needs to "cultivate an ethic of genuine care" for every individual, regardless of ethnic, gender, class, immigration status, or any other consideration." (from Wikipedia)
    This edition of the New Jim Crow RadioBlog is presented in cooperation with the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis, where Rev. John T. Crestwell, Jr., one of this week's guests, is As
