The Texas NAACP and Texas League of United Latin American Citizens on Monday contended that the curriculum changes passed in May “were made with the intention to discriminate” and would have a “stigmatizing impact” on African-American and Latino students.“The State of Texas is failing to provide many of its minority students with equal educational opportunities,” documents sent to the federal department said.This is like in your face, like showing the ultimate in disrespect,” Bledsoe said. “To suggest the positive aspects of slavery or to exalt Jefferson Davis of the Confederacy is just an abomination. I mean no disrespect to people who may have had ancestors who were part of that, but it is what it is.”NewsOne

The shooting of unarmed Michael Brown by Ferguson Police officer Darren Wilson set off a chain of events in and around St. Louis. Numerous individuals and organizations, including activist groups, community leaders and members of the clergy all had a lot to say about the incident. One individual’s perspective, Minister and Activist Johnathan Gentry, has garnered a lot of attention. In fact, a six minute video of him expressing his thoughts about the shooting gained enough popularity to land him an appearance on Fox News. Many people agree with what he had to say. However, some do not. Is there any truth to Minister Gentry’s statements or is he just another “Uncle Tom” tap dancing for the white man? How do the views expressed in his video and TV appearance relate to the Bible? Join us as we search for answers to these questions and more.

It's not just that a greater share of African Americans are out of work. It's also that they continue to seek jobs for longer than whites do. Last month, the unemployment rate for white Americans was 5.4 percent. For black Americans, it was more than twice that, at 11.5, the numbers are down from 13.5 percent about the same time last year. Unemployment in the African American community remain in the double digits, causing alarm among some civil rights leaders.
African-American women are the only demographic in the United States whose unemployment rate has not improved over the past year, according to a National Women's Law Center analysis of the latest jobs data.

The United States is the world's leader in incarceration with 2.2 million people currently in the nation's prisons or jails -- a 500% increase over the past thirty years.
More than 60% of the people in prison are now racial and ethnic minorities. For Black males in their thirties, 1 in every 10 is in prison or jail on any given day. These trends have been intensified by the disproportionate impact of the "war on drugs," in which two-thirds of all persons in prison for drug offenses are people of color.

The National African American Forum was formed to address the concerns of the New Jim Crow ” Mass Incarceration in the Age of Color Blindness
According to Michelle Alexander, New York Times Best Seller, and winner of the NAACP image award, states that the war on drugs during the Reagan Administration set into motion blatant discrimination within the caste system in the criminal justice system, education, economic development, housing, health, and the political process. According to Alexander individuals that was classified as a convicted felon after release could not receive public assistance in health, housing, and education, furthermore those individuals could not apply for loans to start a business, and did not have the right to vote.
A vast majority of those individuals were African Americans. Through new Jim Crow African Americans have been left behind in all institutions of life.
The National African American Forum is setting out to undo the wrongs of the New Jim Crow.
