USA : Starve the Racist Prison Beast: Review of America’s System of Mass Incarceration
By : Black Commentator - Sunday April 30, 2006
Starve the Racist Prison Beast: Review of America’s System of Mass Incarceration By Paul Street April 19, 2006 Black Commentator Let me start by quoting my favorite historical personality from Indiana - the great democratic Socialist Eugene Debs, from Terre Haute. "While there is a lower class," Debs once said, "I am of it. While there is a criminal element," he added, "I am of it; while there is a soul in prison, I am not free."

NEWS YOU WON’T FIND ON CNN Genocide By Norma Sherry 04/26/06 "ICH" — -- As a people who praise humanity; as a human race we have a despicable history. Since the beginning of time we, as a people, have abolished those with whom we didn’t like or agree with, or those who had what we wanted: like land or rich resources. We haven’t changed much. It appears we haven’t learned from our past and as the acts of genocide pile high, clearly, we’re doomed to keep (...)

Last week, Cynthia McKinney’s big hair collided with racism that never dies. by Erin Aubry Kaplan I’VE GONE ghetto. Don’t be alarmed. This isn’t news. Actually I haven’t gone ghetto; I’ve just realized that I’ve been ghetto all along.

No apologies from U.S. government over this once popular pursuit March 13, 2006 Last week, the U.S. came out with its annual human rights report for the world. The only difference between this year’s and those of the recent past is the elimination of Iraq as being the world’s most vile abuser of human rights. Otherwise, the same culprits are mentioned: China, Syria, Iran, North Korea, and a quickly ascending Venezuela. Here are a few statements from the report: The Chinese (...)

Danish Cartoons: Racism Has No Place on the Left
By : Deepa Kumar - Tuesday March 14, 2006
by Deepa Kumar I’ve just about had it. I cannot watch one more episode of the Daily Show which makes racist jokes about Arabs and Muslims. I am sick and tired of people who see themselves as part of the left writing articles that put a liberal gloss over what is, in essence, a right-wing "clash of civilizations" argument. And I am fed up with an anti-war movement in the United States that will do nothing to defend Muslims against all the attacks they have faced both domestically (...)

Harvard study blasts Bush education policy
By : Jason Szep - Sunday February 19, 2006
By Jason SzepTue President George W. Bush’s No Child Left Behind education policy has in some cases benefited white middle-class children over blacks and other minorities in poorer regions, a Harvard University study showed on Tuesday. Political compromises forged between some states and the federal government have allowed schools in some predominantly white districts to dodge penalties faced by regions with larger ethnic minority populations, the study said. Bush’s 2001 No (...)

Misunderstanding Muslims
By : James Carroll - Friday February 17, 2006
1 comment
by James Carroll When the Koran was said to have been denigrated by American guards at Guantanamo last year, Muslims reacted with rage, but most observers in the West misunderstood why. It was easy for Christians and Jews — the other ’’people of the Book" — to think that such an insult to the Koran was like an insult to the Bible. That would be sacrilege enough, but it was worse than that. Drawing analogies between religions can mislead, but the Koran stands in (...)

The Cost of Prisons
By : Tom Montgomery-Fate - Friday February 17, 2006
by Tom Montgomery-Fate The remarkable thing about Renny Golden’s writing is that it provides a bridge of understanding between a silenced, disenfranchised community and those who need to hear what that community is trying to say. Via her books, Golden, a professor of criminal justice, sociology, and social work at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago, has constructed these bridges by deftly balancing social analysis with her deep concern for the voices of the analyzed.

Bigotry on the loose

By Carl Bloice It wasn’t Copenhagen, it was Washington and something that transpired there recently was ugly and more than a little frightening. Bigotry was on the loose. It wasn’t covered much by the country’s major media, and those that did cover it seem to have missed a critical piece of the story which was reported by slate.com and the Financial Times. Michael Scherer wrote that of the attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) at the Omni (...)

Four Presidents and a Raucous Funeral for a King

by Karen Jacobs and Tabassum Zakaria Speakers seized on the presence of President Bush to attack his policies on Tuesday at the funeral of Coretta Scott King, the first lady of the U.S. civil rights movement. Jimmy Carter, one of four presidents to speak, took a jab at Bush’s domestic eavesdropping program during six hours of sermons, speeches and song for the late widow of Nobel peace laureate Martin Luther King Jr., assassinated in 1968. The 10,000 mourners also heard the Rev. (...)

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 (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
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. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

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 (...)

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

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 (...)
