In Baltimore in 1910, a black Yale law school graduate purchased a home in a previously all-white neighborhood,The Baltimore city government reacted by restricting African Americans to designated blocks. Explaining the policy, Baltimore’s mayor proclaimed, “Blacks should be quarantined in isolated slums in order to reduce the incidence of civil disturbance, to prevent the spread of communicable disease into the nearby White neighborhoods, and to protect property values among the White majority.”Thus began a century of federal, state, and local policies to quarantine Baltimore’s black population in isolated slums—policies that continue to the present day.In 1968, following hundreds of similar riots nationwide, a commission appointed by President Lyndon Johnson concluded that “[o]ur nation is moving toward two societies, one black, one white—separate and unequal” and that “[s]egregation and poverty have created in the racial ghetto a destructive environment totally unknown to most white Americans.” The Kerner Commission (headed by Illinois Governor Otto Kerner) added that “[w]hat white Americans have never fully understood—but what the Negro can never forget—is that white society is deeply implicated in the ghetto. White institutions created it, white institutions maintain it, and white society condones it.”When the Kerner Commission blamed “white society” and “white institutions,” it employed euphemisms to avoid naming the culprits everyone knew at the time. It was not a vague white society that created ghettos but government—federal, state, and local.In 1917, the U.S. Supreme Court found ordinances like Baltimore’s 1910 segregation rule unconstitutional, not because they abridged African Americans’ rights to live where they could afford, but because they restricted the property rights of (white) homeowners to sell to whomever.
SILENT WORDS UNLEASHED silentwordsunleashed.co
Zionism is racism, is segregation, is apartheid, is all over the world.
But, more so in Israel. Israel is a brutal society that has no interest other than subjugation of its "lesser than" people. Palestinians, Arabs in general and especially black folks. Everyday instances of murders, beatings, and arrests of the "lesser thans" don't get broadcast by any media outside the Occupied Territories unless there is a "war" going on like back in 2012-13 when CNN, MSNBC, and ABC were looking at it from the Israeli point of view. I believe FOX phoned their reports from London, safe place that.
The news from OT are from local citizen journalists and photographers that are in the middle of fight for their rights. The only outlets are you and me and blogs that have the balls to carry the messages against Israel's atrocities.

Birmingham, Alabama is considered ground zero in the civil rights movement. In the 1950s, African-Americans of all ages in Birmingham drew a proverbial line in the sand against racial segregation. Their stories, struggles and ultimate success over Jim Crow laws is on display at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute in an effort to keep the stories of this dark chapter in American history alive.
Across the street from the Civil Rights Institute is the 16th Street Baptist Church where a 1963 bombing that killed four young girls changed the course of history in Birmingham and America. We will walk through this church that has, today, become a place to unify a community and people from all over the world.
Downtown Birmingham is the home to the Civil Rights Heritage Trail. Kelly Ingrham Park, also known as Freedom Park, was the staging area for many of the demonstrations that took place in Birmingham led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth and others. Today, Freedom Parkt is a sculpture garden that honors those who peacefully demonstrated.
We will revisit our conversation with jazz legend, the late Frank "Doc" Adams. He shared his music and life with us when we met him at the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame just weeks before his passing at the age of 86.

Tomorrow would have marked Dr. Martin Luther King’s 87th birthday, had an assassin’s bullet not cut short his life to a mere 39 years. But when you think about what he accomplished in such a short life, you can’t help but marvel at the symbolic victory he continues to win each and every year since his death.
Within a little more than 40 years this country would elect its FIRST Black President.
The walls of segregation would come tumbling down in may places around the United States.
An African American woman would transform her TV talk show to become one of the richest and most respected personalities in the world.
And oppressed people from Australia to South Africa would use the teachings of Dr. King to dismantle the discriminatory practices used to keep them for achieving their dreams.
That’s just the short list of countless developments around the world that stemmed from the ashes of a dreamer who died on the job.
Dr. King realized that the “Cause” was greater than he could ever imagine. And his life reminds us that we must pursue just causes and solve tough challenges that are waiting for our time and talent to tackle.
We’ll wrestle with this challenge as we celebrate the life and legacy of a man of action for ALL times.
