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
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?
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.

The Justice Department launched a broad investigation Thursday into the police department in Ferguson, Missouri.The investigation, which is separate from an existing federal probe into the Aug. 9 shooting of Michel Brown, will look for patterns of discrimination within the predominantly white department and focus on how officers use force, search and arrest suspects, and treat inmates at the city jail.
Behind the rise in seizures is a little-known cottage industry of private police-training firms that teach the techniques of “highway interdiction” to departments across the country.One of those firms created a private intelligence network known as Black Asphalt Electronic Networking & Notification System that enabled police nationwide
There have been 61,998 cash seizures made on highways and elsewhere since 9/11 without search warrants or indictments through the Equitable Sharing Program, totaling more than $2.5 billion. State and local authorities kept more than $1.7 billion of that while Justice, Homeland Security and other federal agencies received $800 million. Half of the seizures were below $8,800

The Yardie Skeptics return this Sunday, September 21st at 12:30pm (11:30am Jamaican time) for our penultimate episode in season 2 as we explore the vast range of issues experienced by Diasporic Jamaicans. Why is there still ongoing tension between persons who live inside Jamaica who see themselves as "authentically" Jamaican, and Jamaicans living in the Diaspora who are constantly accused of being "deserters?" Diaspora members keep the economy afloat with a steady flow of foreign currency via remittances, but are scoffed at if the possibility of a Diasporic vote is ever mentioned. Local Jamaicans are the ones who have to deal with the every day realities and hardships of life at home and are tired of being chided as backward and archaic by Diasporic Jamaicans.
Can there be any reconciliation? Is it possible to harness the collective energy of each and every person who identifies themself as Jamaican regardless of geographical location?
Tune in as the Yardie Skeptics go on a guided tour of Diaspora issues with our special guest Rain Jarrett, adjunct professor of sociology at Florida International University. Wherever you are, if you call yourself a "Yardie" we want to hear from you!
