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.

Are you ready? Let the conversations begin...
Seoul, South Korea is the gathering place for this years meeting of the World Alliance of Religion Peace Summit on September 17, 18, and 19, and Denise Love, advocate for the rights of the incarcerated, will be a special delegate from the U.S. Representing the Chriss-Shaun/ Jesse Ma Houston Prison Ministry, Denise Love plans to share her passion about righting the injustices of those trapped in America's prison system. She will get an opportunity to meet with Ambassadors, Heads of State, religious leaders, healthcare advocates, and others who will speak about justice and prisons in countries struggling to end war and live in peace. The eyes of the world are on America, and after the Ferguson uprising over the killing of unarmed teen Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson, many more videos have surfaced on the Internet showing shocking scenes of police brutality. Ms. Love intends to present the case of America's racially biased Criminal Justice system to the world community with the hopes that international attention and pressure may put an end to the killing of citizens by police that continue to be casually dismissed particularly when the person killed is an African American male. The outrageous numbers of imprisoned U.S. citizens is a subject of concern for Ms. Love, who hopes to bring light to the profit motive that has corrupted the criminal justice system into a mere business. What can the international community do to bring pressure to the powers that be in America to end racial injustice? Is this the next step before taking America before the World Court to sue for human rights violations?
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.

This week we will be discussing the Brian Peixoto case in Massachusetts with advocate Lisa Munger. We will be taking calls during the second half of the show. Please call (347) 850-1478 with questions and comments about the case.
Brian Peixoto was convicted in 1996 for the murder of his girlfriend's 3-year-old son Christopher Affonso, Jr., and sentenced to life in prison in Massachusetts.
Peixoto was 26 years old at the time of his arrest. He had been dating the 3-year-old's mother Ami Sneed for about 3 months at the time of the child's death. Sneed had recently been staying at his home.
The State's medical examiner determined during autopsy that the child died from blunt head trauma leading investigators to suspect child abuse. Peixoto and Sneed immediately became their lead suspects. After being pressured by police, and giving up to eight different versions of events, Sneed provided a statement implicating Peixoto.
Peixoto's supporters state that the child died from injuries sustained during a fall, not from child abuse, and they have four nationally and internationally recognized medical experts that agree with them. Peixoto also has the support of the Massachusetts CPCS Innocence Program.
How should YOU deal with injustice committed against you? Throw up your hands and do nothing? Use courts of law? Or take personal revenge because courts of law are corrupt? Here's the bigger question? How do you get God on your side, working FOR you in this, and not AGAINST you? St. Peter, (and there's too many jokes about standing before St. Peter in Heaven) had a few words to say about this. And if anybody knew about injustice, it was he. This Thursday evening we'll talk about that, and here from Peter in his own words. Tune in and take notes! Your host: Rev. Rick Anderson, on "Jewish Roots", an internet call-in podcast each Thursday 9:30 pm at www.blogtalkradio.com/fougcrew. Or listen LIVE through Twitter, LinkedIn, GooglePlus or www.facebook.com/fougcrew / To call with a question or comment: 347-324-5759.
