Racism is a touchy subject for many. Let's discuss how much we have really progressed as a nation since the era of the Jim Crow laws and the civil rights movement. With today's headlines we are hearing rumors of police brutality, racial profiling and race wars mounting. How can we come to an understanding? Let's talk it out!
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.

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.
Reconstruction had a goal and it was to readmit the out on terms that were acceptable to the north-full political and civil equality for blacks and the denial of the political rights of whites who were the leaders of the secession movement.
Brother Miguel Adams aka Siempre Luchando will be joining us on Sign o the Times Blogtalk Radio TONIGHT January 28, 2015 at 6:00PM EST. He will be discussing the Campaign to End the New Jim Crow and he will be introducing a new publication from the Industrial Workers of the World, the Incarcerated Worker! Over the last year or so, some prisoners in the U.S. and outside supporters have gotten together and formed the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee to address concerns such as prison labor and conditions.
In this episode Bob Kirkconnell, author of American Heart of Darkness, will discuss America's biggest and oldest problem of "Racism in America". If there ever has been an opportune time to abolish slavery, it was during and after the Revolutionary War. And yet it survived. Even after the Civil War, a horrific event that killed more Americans than any other war, what did survive was racism. Despite excellent legislation against racism, it morphed into what is today called "Jim Crow," a de facto form of slavery. America tried again in the '60s and '70s with the civil rights movement that resulted in legislation that struck down Jim Crow. The Civil Rights Act of 1964, The Voting Rights Act, and many others made Jim Crow a thing of the past, but this system was replaced again with what we have today which is "The Prison Industrial Complex." Will this ever end, and why won’t it go away?
This brings up some conclusions and also questions:
What is the Prison Industrial Complex and what effect does it have?
Why is legislation ineffective against racism?
Why cannot America leave its racist past behind?
What would replace the Prison Industrial Complex if it was legislated out of existence?
What needs to be done to solve this cancer that has been with America from the very start?

The new Jim Crow has nothing to do with "race" or the "sex" of a person...........the new Jim Crow to a very high degree is "Law Illiteracy". Today on "It's My House" we shall discuss how being illiterate in "basic law" can lead to many problems including incarseration, evictions, forclosure, divorces, etc. etc.
Education is power and we shall give people the basics on what they need to do to empower themselves to reverse any negative situation that they may be involved in.

Is there a New Jim Crow or is it the same old Jim Crow? This show will discuss the issue of Mass Incarcaration and the Murder of Black and Brown Males by Law Enforcement.
The incarceration rates disproportionately impact men of color: 1 in every 15 African American men and 1 in every 36 Hispanic men are incarcerated in comparison to 1 in every 106 white men. 2. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, one in three black men can expect to go to prison in their lifetime.
Does that mean White Males committ less crime? Statistically White Males are the most likely to commit rape, Mass Murder, Spree Killings, and Serial Killings. The average White Serial Killer is allowed to repeatedly commit crimes such as rape and murder before being, "Profiled." By the time they became sloopy they are old and have repeatedly killed over a span of years. With African American Males they are Profiled before every committing a crime. Often they are shot and killed by Police on, "Suspicion" of a crime such as Robbery.
This past week a white male, Eric Frein who shot two deputies, killing one was captured in Pennsylvania alive. Had that been a black male they would have went into his neighborhood and anywhere his relatives lived. They would have harrassed every relative he had and arrested them, and any black mail who fit the, "Profile."
We have a call in guest, Isabelle Gravenstein. She is working with a young man who has been sentenced to 20 years to life for a crime he did not commit. This is a similar issue to my son Kerry Baxter Senior who is serving 66 years to life for a crime he did not commit. The cold part is they know these men are innocent but any old Black Man Will Do! The Same Old Jim Crow!
