    JIM CROW IN TODAY'S AMERIKKKA

    in Motivation

     Notions of race are created to justify slavery because once you point out differences in people, it is easier to start judging and ranking them; positioning some races as more superior than others.  One way this has been demonstrated in America is during the time of Jim Crow Laws. By this time slavery had been abolished but this was a new type of slavery. These laws limited certain freedoms and separated and ranked citizens solely based on race. Some of these limited freedoms included separate eating areas, separate drinking fountains, and separate bathrooms. Jim Crow laws were eventually abolished but this slavery idea still exists today but more through socially constructed laws versus U.S. laws. Examples of this include the war on drugs and the multiple cases of cops treating people unfairly based on the color of their skin.
    Several racial bribes representative of Jim Crow Laws that exist in America today include the mass imprisonment of more people of color than white people, the war on drugs, and discrimination. As Alexander points out in her book, The New Jim Crow, mass imprisonment started back during the Civil Rights Movement when people of color would do legal acts, such as protesting, they would be viewed and handled as criminal acts. The rise in crime rates was also linked not to any other social and economic factor but only to the African American unemployment rates and the Civil Rights Movement. This type of thinking was lead by the conservatives to secretly find ways to maintain white supremacy in America. This crime was also what sparked the war on drugs, which increased the surveillance and severity of punishment for possession or the selling of drugs. Drugs and crime in areas of poverty where there was a great African American population and by cracking down on drugs they could arrest and charge more people of color. Lastly, discrimination is still seen today in jobs, income, living situations, care, and education.

    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 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.
