SORT BY Relevancy
Racism can be defined as views, practices and actions reflecting the belief that humanity is divided into distinct biological groups called races and that members of a certain race share certain attributes which make that group less desirable, more desirable, inferior or superior. The exact definition of racism is controversial both because there is little scholarly agreement about the meaning of the concept "race", and because there is also little agreement about what does and doesn't constitute discrimination. Some definitions would have it that any assumption that a person's behavior would be influenced by their racial categorization is racist, regardless of whether the action is intentionally harmful or pejorative. Other definitions only include consciously malignant forms of discrimination. Racism include discriminatory behaviors and beliefs based on cultural, national, ethnic, caste, or religious stereotypes. The practice of treating certain groups preferentially, or denying rights or benefits to certain groups, based on racial characteristics is termed “institutional racism”. Stokely Carmichael of the “Black Panthers Movement” is credited for coining the phrase institutional racism in the late 1960s. He defined the term as “the collective failure of an organization to provide an appropriate and professional service to people because of their color, culture or ethnic origin”.

From Facing Race 2008's Plenary 3, held on Saturday, November 15. The Compact for Racial Justice offers concrete strategies and policy proposals to reverse racial disparities and move our society towards full equity, inclusion and dignity for all people. The Compact transcends talk of personal prejudice with compelling evidence of institutional racism and realistic proactive solutions. It seeks to engage a broad multiracial base of activists, opinion leaders and policymakers in making government and powerful institutions accountable for eliminating racial inequality in our schools, hospitals, courtrooms and workplaces.

Rinku Sen: Locating Justice
Racial profiling is a practice that presents a great danger to the fundamental principles of our Constitution. Racial profiling disproportionately targets people of color for investigation and enforcement, alienating communities from law enforcement, hindering community policing efforts, and causing law enforcement to lose credibility and trust among the people they are sworn to protect and serve. We rely on the police to protect us from harm and to promote fairness and justice in our communities. The despicable practice of racial profiling, however, has led countless people to live in fear and created a system of law enforcement that casts entire communities as suspect.
Racial profiling continues to be a prevalent and egregious form of discrimination in the United States. This unjustifiable practice remains a stain on American democracy and an affront to the promise of racial equality. Since September 11, 2001, new forms of racial profiling have affected a growing number of people of color in the U.S., including members of Muslim, Arab, and South Asian communities. The Obama administration has inherited a shameful legacy of racial profiling codified in official FBI guidelines and a notorious registration program that treats Arabs and Muslims as suspects and denies them the presumption of innocence and equal protection under the law.
IN THIS BROADCAST WE WILL BE HAVING A PANEL DISCUSSION ON RACE AND RACIAL EQULITY IN AMERICA.
Racial equality means different things in different contexts. It mostly deals with an equal regard to all races. It can refer to a belief in biologicalequality of all human races. It can also refer to social equality for people of different races. WHY HAVE SO CALL BLACK PEOPLE BEEN HATED THROUGHOUT HISTORY? WILL WE EVEN SEE EQUAL JUSTICE HERE IN AMERICA? AND WHY DO IT SEEM LIKE BLACK PEOPLE ARE THE ONLY ONES BEENING KILLED BY POLICE? SO PLEASE COME AND JOIN US AS WE DISCUSS THESE ISSUES.
WE ARE TALKING ABOUT INVESTING IN THIS NEW HIGH-TECH ECONOMY – AND THE EFFECT OF MEDIA BIAS ON THE ECONOMY. THERE ARE WAYS TO GET AROUND THAT BIAS. ONE OF THEM IS THE ISM REPORT WHICH IS THE INSTITUTE OF SUPPLY MANAGEMENT. YOU CAN FIND IT AT I-S-M DOT-W-S. THAT’S ONE OF THE TIPS WE GOT FROM MICHAEL CARR. HE IS THE EDITOR OF PEAK PROFITS REPORT DOT-COM. HE THINKS THERE WILL BE AN INVESTOR PANIC SOON – WHICH HE CALLS THE SANFORD AND SON ECONOMY – THANKS TO HOW THE MEDIA READS ECONOMIC DATA – OR BETTER YET – NOT READING ENOUGH ECONOMIC DATA.
“Yeah I think that is how the media is shaping events. People are scared. Sanford and Son Market. I am coming Elizabeth. Economic news is shifting. There is a lot of great data. ISM new order index great info on page 4 or 5. Orders are now high and about to slow down. Panic will set in. Could see a good 10-20% drop in the market here.”
AGAIN THAT INFORMATION ON THE ISM REPORT IS FREE. JUST GO TO ISM DOT-W-S AND READ. WE WILL HAVE MORE WITH MICHAEL CARR COMING UP. THAT’S INFORMED NOT INFLAMED.
Press  for Democracy (P1FD) is a Coffee Party Radio show that discusses the political issues of the day in a civil, fact-based, and transpartisan manner. Transpartisan is quite different from bi- or non-partisan in the we encourage callers to be passionate about their positions, but also that they listen and respond to those with differing points of view repsectfully and with a true desire to find common ground on which solutions can be built.
Tonight on P1FD . . .
Join special Guest Hosts Kathleen Morgan and Marianne Castiglia for a look at bias in the mainstream media.
Do American’s trust what is published in newspapers, or broadcast on TV and radio news programs?
Charges of bias in the mainstream media seem to be raging stronger than ever. Do you believe that some media outlets distort stories and then allow other stories to get more or less attention? Do you ever feel that minor or trivial stories like celebrity divorce or even lengthy murder trials are used to distract us from getting vital information that has a greater impact on ourselves and our country?
“Media bias” describes an unbalanced or unfair reporting style that is meant not to inform, but to sway public opinion. On today's Press  for Democracy, let's talk about what’s being reported by today’s mainstream media, how it’s being presented, and how it is effecting conversations in neighborhood coffee shops and at work around the water cooler.
The name Black Wallstreet conjures up images of an economicaly thriving African American community attacked and burned to the ground by jealous whites. Today's efforts to resurrect an economically thriving African American community in the wake of the recent riots in Missouri prompt the question "How Ca Econoic Empowerment of African Americans End Racial Injustice?" The disrespect of African Americans has been at the root of American politics, economics and culture, the result of the wounds of slavery that remain unhealed. Can financial affluence alone reverse attitudes of disrespect for black life? Are neighborhoods more likely to get respect from law enforcement officers if the residents are also the business owners in the community? How can a stronger economy in formerly economically depressed communities result in more tangible political gaines? What collective action will it take to circulate money into areas that are currently suffering the consequences of longtime neglect. Chicago activist Mark Allen discusses the plans for Black Wallstreet and how economic development can diffuse racial tensions end the gang violence that is often used as an excuse for excessive police force against African American youth.
Join Pastor Teresa R. Bias, Panelists and Tabernacle Kids, Boss and Pistol (reading) for another exciting Sunday School Lesson.
This week on West Coast Bias we are going to continue our trip around the West Coast teams in this upcoming season. This week we are going to take a look at the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals have gone out and improved this team during the offseason. They didn’t really make a lot of noise during free agency; the only big signing that they had was OT Jared Veldheer who they signed away for the Raiders. The other big move came recently when they resigned CB Patrick Peterson to a contract that made him the highest paid CB in pro football. So as you can see we will have plenty to discuss so join Double K and The Doual as they discuss the Cardinals and their chance to win this season. Tune in Sunday night at 8pm PST right here on the 4ACES Network. www.Blogtalkradio.com/fouracespresents ...
WE’RE TALKING MEDIA BIAS AND THE EFFECT THE MEDIA HAS ON THE ECONOMY. WE SAW IT LAST WEEK. THE INSTITUTE FOR SUPPLY MANAGEMENT ISSUED AN INCORRECT REPORT ON MANUFACTURING AND THE ECONOMY. THEY REVISED IT HOURS LATER TO REFLECT A MORE POSITIVE OUTLOOK. I GOT MICHAEL CARR’S TAKE ON THAT. HE IS THE EDITOR AT PEAK PROFITS DOT-COM. AND I ASKED HIM IF THIS WAS AN HONEST MISTAKE.
“Not this was an honest mistake. Reports with a great work of fiction. They do a seasonal adjustment to the results. All of a sudden economy grew. We don’t know what the report said. We can watch revisions come in. Right now we’re seeing revisions slowing down. We are turning point and see unemployment rise in the coming months. We have bigger population than at start of the recession. Unemployment rate is meaningless. Fewer people supporting the population. We only get what the reporter feels we need to hear about.”
JD 4:34-4:47: WE’RE TALKING WITH MICHAEL CARR, A FREQUENT CONTRIBUTOR TO MONEY NEWS DOT-COM. TO TAKE THIS FURTHER ABOUT THE EFFECT OF MEDIA BIAS ON THE MARKETS, HE HAS LOOKED AT THE EFFECT OF THE JOBS REPORT ON THE MARKETS.
21:56-22:35 “I did. On the day of the jobs report … more volatile. Significant for short term traders. Can take advantage of that. Expect an upward bias in the market that day.”
JD: 4:53-5:29 HOWEVER, MIKE WARNS YOU SHOULD NOT BE TRADING STOCKS ON THIS INFO UNLESS YOU ARE AN EXPERIENCED DAY TRADER WITH LOTS OF TECHNOLOGY TO COMPETE WITH THE BIG TRADING FIRMS. AND THIS IS PART OF WHAT MIKE OFFERS WITH HIS PEAK PROFITS REPORT -- TRADING SYSTEM.
The Dr. Kim Show...Racial Profiling and Legal ethics in America! Today in the studio... it is the time for us, each in America, to change the world.
