    African American & European American Perceptions Of Police Aggression

    in Current Events

    Greetings!


    My name is Dr. Ramona Brockett, the research that I will discuss on this episode of The LanceScurv Show comes from my dissertation where I used secondary data from the NCCD archives of the University of Michigan and ran a logistic regression to determine African American (AA) and European American (EA) perceptions of police aggression.


    I looked at justified police aggression and unjustified police aggression.  When I say, "aggression," I mean police action. The areas of perception included everything from arrests to helping old ladies across the street.


    The most important findings were these:


    (1) AA's in the upper glass approved of police aggression at a lower rate than lower class EA's;


    (2) Working class AA's and Working class EA's approved similarly police to both justified and unjustified police aggression; and,


    (3) working class AA's approve of both justified and unjustified police aggression at a higher rate than the upper class AA's, middle class AA's and lower class AA's.  Dissimilarly, EA's approval is proportionate with class.  So, upper class A's approve at the highest rates and approval decreases with class.


    A second topic we need to explore is my Conceptual Incarceration Theory.  This theory looks at the 13th Amendment and I contend that inherent within the wording of the 13Th Amendment, the AA is reinslaved upon incarceration.  Thus, the reason why black life is devalued--we are not considered human.  Thus, Garner etc., could easily be killed.


    Lance and I look forward to your presence and participation in the sharing of my findings.


    See you there!

    Blue Eyes on African American History

    in Politics

    Author Philip Reiss of Blue Eyes on African American History will be my guest on 12/7/14 @3pm EST.


    Our conversation will cover Philip's career and discussion about his book. We will also talk about the recent uprising in Ferguson Missourri and with Eric Garner.


    Until Bayard Rustin’s lecture in the fall of 1962, no other person had brought author Philip Reiss so far toward gaining an understanding of what it was like for African-Americans living as second-class citizens in this nation, which sponsors a pledge calling for “liberty and justice for all.”


    The Rustin lecture became Reiss’s point of departure on his quest to learn more fully of the African-American experience; it prompted him to become aware and to truly understand that the entire nation shared responsibility for the dilemma of deep-seated injustices that African-Americans constantly faced. In Blue Eyes on African-American History, Reiss provides an account of a white professor’s learning and teaching about African-American history from 1970 to 1999 at a SUNY community college.


    Reiss includes specifics of how and why he took on the challenge of teaching African-American history and discusses the historical events he deems critical for understanding of that history. His study relates the impact of economic exploitation facilitated by racism and how these twin evils are central to the African-American historical narrative.


    Along with factual history, this volume intersperses some of Resiss’s experiences as a young boy, as a young adult serving in the military, and as a professor teaching his course. It provides unique insight into a turbulent time in America.

    Kwanzaa Celebration and Cooking Healthy African-American Soul Food

    in Lifestyle

    Kwanzaa is a Pan African Holiday that emphasizes a time of remembrance and recommitment to the global African community and to our ancestors. It creates the climate to sustain reflections regarding the moral compass, vast influence, and extensive reach with regard to the meaning of being African in this world.  Within the climate of this day and time it is critical that we explore the meaning of who we are, who we were, the legacies that were passed down, and the legacies that we are leaving for the following generations.


    Plus, some special words from the late, great Maya Angelou on the significance of Kwanzaa and why it is so important to the African-American experience.


    Also, healthy choices in cooking traditional African-American soul food. How to incorporate a healthy new start to an old tradition in this New Year.
