It’s time to think the unthinkable
By : Bruce Dixon - Saturday July 15, 2006
By Bruce Dixon, BC Editor "Don’t put that out there" is the admonition delivered to folks impolite enough to talk about bad things which might happen but have not yet come to pass, as if mere discussion or consideration of some awful possibility makes it more likely. We at BC understand politeness. But failing to recognize, to examine and to understand unpleasant possibilities before they become devastating realities is worse than impolite. It’s foolish. The unpleasant truths (...)

Black Civic Groups Having D.C. Vigil Urging Vote to Renew Voting Rights Act
By : Michael H. Cottman - Saturday July 15, 2006
1 comment
By: Michael H. Cottman A broad coalition of civil rights groups will gather Wednesday evening on Capitol Hill for an "urgent call to action" to pressure the U.S. Congress to stop stalling and vote on the renewal of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Black leaders say because congressional lawmakers have delayed voting on the re-authorization of the Voting Rights Act, many black Americans could find their right to vote in jeopardy. "We are urging Congress to take action now," Melanie Campbell, (...)

Imperial Racism
By : fidelista - Monday July 10, 2006
3 comments
Racism, the ideology that came into full flower as a justification for European conquest of most of the planet, is now headquartered in the United States - with an annex in Israel. Tel Aviv is a very active annex. There could be no justification for George Bush’s aggressions, without the underlying assumptions of racial superiority. Bush has committed multiple crimes against peace - a capital Nuremburg offense for which a number of Nazis were hanged. He is a war criminal, many times (...)

Don’t Blame Canada By Stephen Lautens June 16, 2006 In the past few weeks, I’ve heard some of the yapping social experts say something that really gets my blood boiling. I heard it in reference to two recent incidents - the breaking up of an alleged terrorist plot and a sweep in Toronto that arrested a few truckloads of gang members. What was it the enlightened commentators said that got my goat? When it was pointed out the people accused in each case were immigrants or (...)

Sanctions & boycotts against racist, Apartheid Israel should exclude universities for DISCOURSE
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Friday June 9, 2006
5 comments
The world should respond to Israel’s racist, human-rights abusing Apartheid policies with SANCTIONS and BOYCOTTS. However Israeli universities should be exempt from such blanket boycotts because the academic ethos is about truth, reason and dialogue - indeed such dialogue might well help to bring an end to gross, proto-Nazi ultrazionist violations of the Geneva, Human Rights and Rights of the Child Conventions. The recent academic boycott resolutions of the Canadian CUPE and the (...)

Amendment Proposal Needs Serious Attention
By : Media Advisory - Thursday June 8, 2006
Politics aside, how would Constitution be affected by gay marriage ban? Media Advisory In a move that most political observers describe as a tactic to increase voter turnout among his party’s conservative base, George W. Bush announced on June 5 that he supported a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. While much of the media discussion of the issue focuses on the GOP’s political maneuvering, few reports examined what the actual effects of the proposed amendment would (...)

SAUDI COSMETICS?
By : William Fisher - Wednesday June 7, 2006
By William Fisher As human rights organizations expressed skepticism that detainees recently transferred from Guantanamo Bay to Saudi Arabian custody could receive fair trials and escape torture - and a new study charged that the country’s textbooks continue to promote intolerance of other religions - the oil-rich Kingdom put the finishing touches on its new Human Rights Commission. The new commission - which the government characterizes as an independent rights watchdog — (...)

Panel: N.C. Should Pay for 1898 Race Riot
By : MIKE BAKER - Sunday June 4, 2006
By MIKE BAKER RALEIGH, N.C. — A state-appointed commission is urging North Carolina to provide reparations for the 1898 racial violence that sparked an exodus of more than 2,000 black residents from Wilmington. The 500-page report that was produced after six years of study also said the violence, which killed as many as 60 people, was not a spontaneous riot but rather the nation’s only recorded coup d’etat. "There is no amount of money that can repair what happened (...)

The "Marriage Ammendment," Slavery, and Women As Property
By : Dan Stafford - Thursday June 1, 2006

There is a lesson to be learned here from history, most importantly what has been glossed over and hidden in the teaching of it. Not only were African-American slaves and women held in bondage, so were white indentured servants, Chinese immigrant laborers on the railways, and numerous other groups of POOR PEOPLE. In fact, many still are held in effective bondage to this very day. This has always been a case of the wealthy using every possible distinction they can drum up, be it class, (...)

McGreevey’s Confession
By : Wayne Besen - Thursday June 1, 2006
by Wayne Besen In the shadow of Mary Cheney’s apologist memoir, "Now It’s My Turn," comes an apology from former New Jersey Governor James McGreevey in his new book "The Confession." With Mary receiving a mllion dollars for her "tell nothing" and McGreevey receiving a half million for his "tell-all," it has suddenly become quite lucrative to announce one’s homosexuality. Perhaps, next year’s National Coming Out Day should be held in a bank? Cynicism aside, (...)

Thorns In The Rose Garden

by Wayne Besen The Bush administration is out of gas and nobody can afford it, so the President is priming the pump with the same anti-gay fuel that always runs the GOP’s engine: Same-sex marriage. But will the parlor trick work again for an administration clunking by on fumes? According to the conservative magazine, The Weekly Standard, Bush will hold a press conference in the Rose Garden on June 5 to reaffirm his support for a Constitutional Amendment prohibiting gay people from (...)

Political Invisibles

by Sasha Abramsky What does it mean when a democracy removes the vote from several million adults? How is the political process affected when certain groups — racial minorities and low-income whites, in particular — bear the brunt of this disenfranchisement? These are not abstract questions intended to tax the minds of students in a poli-sci class. Rather, they are questions about a massive contraction of the franchise that is occurring, today, largely in the shadows, in the (...)

A Progressive Top Five
By : Jabari Asim - Wednesday May 31, 2006
By Jabari Asim WASHINGTON — If "American Idol" didn’t completely satisfy your appetite for gimmickry, you might consider turning to National Review. A recent issue offers its handy list of the top 50 conservative rock songs of all time. The list is intended to be provocative because rock is often considered a focal point of progressive sentiments. What I found far more striking, however, was the relative whiteness of the artists. Exactly when did rock ’n’ roll, (...)

The Million Dollar Staffer

by Wayne Besen Like her father’s misbegotten war in Iraq, Mary Cheney’s book is backfiring. Just as Dick thought the Iraqis would throw flowers at our troops and greet them as liberators, Mary imagined her tome would liberate her from being perceived as a lesbian lackey. But instead of roses, people are roiled and "Now It’s My Turn" makes Mary appear more sycophantic than sympathetic. Time and again, Mary is confronted with opportunities to educate America and voice her (...)

XENOPHOBIA: America’s Flip-Flop

Americans are among the most oprobrious xenophobes on the planet, but the dichotomy is really odd to say the least. CUBA: We call Castro a "butcher" but love his cigars. RUSSIA: Cheney insults them, U.S.citizens still think they’re all "Commies", but Bush has looked into Putin’s eyes and sees a fine soul. CHINA: We hate them for their odd eating and religious habits, abhor their military buildup, but love their food and can’t wait to build more factories on their soil. (...)

Racist UK-US democratic tyranny, "free market", "drug patent rights" & African HIV/AIDS catastrophe
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Wednesday May 10, 2006

Of course, unlike the situation in the 19th century, the democratic West is now politically correct (PC) and eschews explicit racism. Kurtz’s assertion of "exterminate all the brutes" in Joseph Conrad’s African novel "Heart of Darkness" was acceptable back in circa 1900 when it was first published in an explicitly racist Britain. Western intellectuals armed with Darwin’s "Origin of Species" justified racist colonial impositions in terms of "survival of the fittest" (i.e. (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives.

About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
