SORT BY Relevancy
With Moral Mondays, Rev. Barber has channeled the pent-up frustration of North Carolinians who were shocked by how quickly their state had been transformed into a laboratory for conservative policies. "He believed we needed to kind of burst this bubble of 'There's nothing we can do for two years until the next election,'" explains Al McSurely, a longtime NAACP organizer. But what may be most notable about Barber's new brand of civil rights activism is how he's taken a partisan fight and presented it as an issue that transcends party or race—creating a more sustained pushback against Republican overreach than anywhere else in the country.
Barber fears that Republican lawmakers' efforts to expand private-school vouchers will resegregate the very schools his parents worked to integrate. As NAACP president, he helped pass legislation establishing same-day voter registration and expanding death penalty appeals—bills that Republicans repealed in the last legislative session.

The pending child abuse case against Minnesota Viking Adrian Peterson has brought spanking, a common form of child discipline used by parents, back into public scrutiny.
"By the the time they reach adolescence, 85 percent of the nation's children will have been, at one point or another, spanked," Dr. Alan Kazdin, a psychologist at Yale University told ABC News.

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.

Crooked Cops, Black Ops and Police Brutality "Up Date"
We as a Afrikan/black people have endured centuries of brutalization and death at the hands of white people and the the so called local authorities. But why still to this day in the year 2014 we are oppressed and legally brutalized and in most cases murdered and assassinated by those who are responsible to serve and protect the community. Yet our most prominent organizations like the NAACP and the Black Coccus do nothing and if they are I don't see it nor hear about it. But I do see and hear of the death, harassment and physical abuse these corrupt cops are posing everyday within the black community.

In this episode of Independence Nation, Keith A. Pitts, MSE will attack the issue of a draconian rules and laws, as well as the communist system that follows it. Draconian laws, however, were particularly harsh. For example, any debtor whose status was lower than that of his creditor was forced into slavery. The punishment was more lenient for those owing debt to a member of a lower class. The death penalty was the punishment for even minor offences, such as "stealing a cabbage". Concerning the liberal use of the death penalty in the Draconic code, Plutarch states: "It was a lot for himself, when asked why he had fixed the punishment of death for most offences, answered that he considered these lesser crimes to deserve it, and he had no greater punishment for more important ones.
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.
