    Political Prisoners: Do Elected Officials Use Jail To Silence Opposition?

    in Women

    Rev. Edward Pinkney, Pastor of God House of Faith in Benton Harbor, Michigan and President of BANCO, is a hard working activist who found himself in an unexpected place. Jail.


    Toni Meekey Stith, Chicago community activist working with Families of Those Wrongfully Convicted and candidate for Alderman of the 34th Ward, found herself also in an unexpected place. Jail.


    Both recognize trumped up charges placed against them which seem to originate from those whose positions of authority they are threatening with their public activism.


    We like to believe that America is a democracy where people are treated equally under the law but recent events have made it clear that this is not so. Many are outraged that those in "low income" communities tend to be arrested and jailed more often than those from affluent communities. But what about the injustice against those working people who are targeted simply because they dare to challenge those in authority? Sometimes those in power will become cruel and ruthless if threatened with the loss of a political position. Is jail being used as a tool by some in authority to silence their opposition?

    Critical Discourse – Black Men, the Mayor of NYC and the NYPD; Viva Cuba?

    in Current Events

    The reverberations from the Richmond County Grand Jury’s decision not to indict Daniel Pantaleo, of the NYPD, continue to be felt.


    While protests on behalf of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, have been largely peaceful, if not very inconveniencing for New Yorkers, there have been sporadic instances of violence,


    During a protest on the Brooklyn Bridge last Saturday, two men, both white, one a college professor, allegedly triggered a melee and assaulted police.


    In the meantime, the events and reactions from that fateful day has caused tension between Mayor DiBlasio and the head of the Patrolman’s Benevolent Association, Patrick Lynch, who has accused the mayor of making remarks that are disrespectful of the police.


    In fact, some of the NYPD have supported a pledge to disinvite the Mayor to their funerals.


    On the international front, Barack Obama has decided to establish diplomatic and economic relations with Cuba, citing that the embargo, in place since 1961, has “not worked”.


    Again, as expected, the reactions vary, with intense criticism from Sens. Marco Rubio Robert Menendez, both of whom are of Cuban heritage.


    On the other hand, Jimmy Carter praised Obama’s “political courage”. Perhaps he sees this as a sort of redemption from the Mariel Boatlift?


    I wonder out loud, what this means for black people economically, with an anticipated influx of Cubans to this country, just 90 miles away.


    For those old enough to remember, this conjures memories of the Bay of Pigs (1961) and Cuban Missile Crisis (1962).


    By the WAY, Obama says that black people are “better off” (HE said it, NOT me!)


    So be prepared to discuss these pointed issues on the Critical Discourse University of the Blogosphere.
