    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.

    Weird and Wacky Laws


    Let’s have some fun discussing the ridiculous, outdated and just almost-too-funny-to-be-true laws that exist in the US. This 30-minute show will be fun, and provide legal trivia that’s perfect for a water-cooler conversation or to stump your friends!


    Just in the presenter’s home state of Florida:



    The Florida State Constitution allows for freedom of speech, a trial by jury, and pregnant pigs to not be confined in cages.        
    Laws in Florida include:



    It is illegal to sell your children.
    It is considered an offense to shower naked.
    You are not allowed to break more than three (3) dishes per day.
    And in case you think it is ok to switch to breaking cups in Florida, be aware: chip the edges of more than four cups or saucers, and you are breaking the Law!


    Keep in mind that this radio show is for entertainment... it is not advisable using the mentioned laws as evidence in court, unless you'd like the judge to laugh you into jail!


    The Presenter is “LADY LAWYER LIVE,” Cynthia Rignanese. Ms. Rignanese has been practicing law in the city of Winter Haven in Central Florida since 1990. Her practice focuses on estate planning, business, corporate and real property law. She can be reached live on the air. Following the show, her office number is 863/294-1114.
