    JIM CROW IN TODAY'S AMERIKKKA

    in Motivation

     Notions of race are created to justify slavery because once you point out differences in people, it is easier to start judging and ranking them; positioning some races as more superior than others.  One way this has been demonstrated in America is during the time of Jim Crow Laws. By this time slavery had been abolished but this was a new type of slavery. These laws limited certain freedoms and separated and ranked citizens solely based on race. Some of these limited freedoms included separate eating areas, separate drinking fountains, and separate bathrooms. Jim Crow laws were eventually abolished but this slavery idea still exists today but more through socially constructed laws versus U.S. laws. Examples of this include the war on drugs and the multiple cases of cops treating people unfairly based on the color of their skin.
    Several racial bribes representative of Jim Crow Laws that exist in America today include the mass imprisonment of more people of color than white people, the war on drugs, and discrimination. As Alexander points out in her book, The New Jim Crow, mass imprisonment started back during the Civil Rights Movement when people of color would do legal acts, such as protesting, they would be viewed and handled as criminal acts. The rise in crime rates was also linked not to any other social and economic factor but only to the African American unemployment rates and the Civil Rights Movement. This type of thinking was lead by the conservatives to secretly find ways to maintain white supremacy in America. This crime was also what sparked the war on drugs, which increased the surveillance and severity of punishment for possession or the selling of drugs. Drugs and crime in areas of poverty where there was a great African American population and by cracking down on drugs they could arrest and charge more people of color. Lastly, discrimination is still seen today in jobs, income, living situations, care, and education.

    Mr Jim Crow

    in Politics

    Election officials in 27 states, most of them Republicans, have launched a program that threatens a massive purge of voters from the rolls. Millions, especially black, Hispanic and Asian-American voters, are at risk. At the heart of this voter-roll scrub is the Interstate Crosscheck program, which has generated a master list of nearly 7 million names.Crosscheck list of suspected double voters has been compiled by matching names from roughly 110 million voter records from participating states.The three states’ lists are heavily weighted with names such as Jackson, Garcia, Patel and Kim — ones common among minorities, who vote overwhelmingly Democratic. Indeed, fully 1 in 7 African-Americans in those 27 states.“It’s Jim Crow all over again,” says the Rev. Joseph Lowery, who cofounded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference with Martin Luther King Jr  Al Jazeera America.

    Racism

    in Christianity

    Racism w/guests Jovan Mackenzy, T Deimaris Barlow, & Erick Rose


    Racism has exsisted for a very long time throughout history in the world, and here in America we have a part of our History during the times of slavery where black men and women were treated as less then human. We would like to think we have come along way since those days but have we? While racism has never truly gone away in our country and most likely will always be around in some form until the Lord returns, over the last year or so we have seen an increase of this or at least it seems as an increase now that with social media videos and photos can quickly travel in minutes if not seconds. Allowing everyone to see acts of racism much more then may have possibly been seen without the internet and access to video cameras at the touch of our fingertips on just about every phone that someone may have.


    My prayer for this show is to really talk about this issue of racism and what we are seeing our country. Talking about the police, black on black crime, repsonses from white people, racial profiling, the sin of racism, and what we can do better as Christians to enagage and respond to the sin of racism and show the world how to deal with this issue from a biblical worldview. While at the same time not minimizing the hurt, pain and anger felt by those who have been on the negative side of racism because of the color of their skin.
