THE MISSION: Martin Luther King, Jr.,’s final chapter
By : DAVID LEVERING LEWIS - Monday January 23, 2006
by DAVID LEVERING LEWIS In one of his more bizarre Oval Office confidences, Lyndon Johnson said that he didn’t want to “follow Hitler” but that Hitler had the right idea: “Just take a simple thing and repeat it often enough, even if it wasn’t true, why, people accept it.” Johnson was speaking by telephone to Martin Luther King, Jr., in Selma, Alabama, about how to convince Southern whites that Southern blacks deserved the franchise. The curious (...)

Why do Asians study in Australia, UK & US? PC racism of media lying over US war crimes

PC RACISM (politically correct racism) and cowardice in US-UK-Oz academia has resulted in the mal-education of a current establishment of PC racist journalists, academics and politicians who simultaneously DENY any racism, are COMPLICIT in horrendous mass murder in Asian wars and IGNORE the horrendous, continuing passive genocide of Asians in US wars in gross contravention of the Geneva Conventions (so far there have been 2.1 million avoidable post-invasion deaths and 1.7 million (...)

WHY SHOULD WE BE SURPRISED?
By : William Fisher - Sunday January 22, 2006
2 comments
By William Fisher Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, launched a media tsunami when he declared the Holocaust a myth. But we shouldn’t be all that surprised. The Middle East is chockablock with Holocaust-deniers and Holocaust-minimizers. And it is not only the so-called Arab Street that has been infected. The disease has spread to many members of the Arab intelligentsia and to some of the area’s privileged elite. I learned just how deeply embedded this attitude is (...)

Brokeback Locker Room
By : Wayne Besen - Friday January 20, 2006
by Wayne Besen A few years ago, I had the privilege of meeting a gay professional basketball player for the Utah Jazz. He desperately wanted to come out of the closet, but feared reprisals and career suicide. The man relayed to me the great difficulty of having an active social life in conservative Utah. As a gigantic, well-known black man in lilywhite Mormon Country, it wasn’t as if could slip into a gay bar unnoticed. There were teammates who were aware of his sexual orientation (...)

Segregated Schools: Shame of The City
By : Jonathan Kozol - Thursday January 19, 2006

by Jonathan Kozol Stuyvesant High School is one of the most vivid symbols of the consequences of decades of systematic racism in the United States. Black and Hispanic children make up about 72 percent of the citywide enrollment in the New York City public schools. At Stuyvesant � the most prestigious public school in the city � they make up less than six percent of enrollment. In fact, the percentage of black kids who go to Stuyvesant has decreased dramatically in the last (...)

Discrimination against mobile dwellers in France
By : halemfrance.org/ - Wednesday January 18, 2006
Taxation without recognition? Although not recognised officially as housing, caravans will now be paying council tax. The 2006 finance law introduces council tax for people living in mobile, land-based dwellings, mainly caravans and camping-cars. This aggravates existing discrimination and contradicts recent presidential and government statements. The situation is pure dynamite. Will this blow it up? All depends on what will happen during the next few months. In fact, the law will only (...)

Reflections on King
By : Adrian Walker - Tuesday January 17, 2006
By Adrian Walker It takes a deep devotion to spend more than two decades of your life on a single topic, and the passion that has kept historian Taylor Branch going for all these years comes through clearly when he discusses his life’s work: the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Branch has spent the past 24 years researching, analyzing, and chronicling King, whose life spanned just 39 years. ’’At Canaan’s Edge," the third and concluding volume of his grand trilogy (...)

“The revolution for human rights is opening up unhealthy areas in American life and permitting a new and wholesome healing to take place,” Dr. Martin Luther King once told a racially-mixed audience. “Eventually the civil rights movement will have contributed infinitely more to the nation than the eradication of racial injustice.” Congresswoman Barbara Lee Remembers Martin Luther King By James Butty Washington, DC 16 January 2006 listen to the interview with (...)

By Derrick Z. Jackson AMAZING AMNESIA. How sweet the white privilege. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, ’’Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." Right on time for the King holiday, America is elevating yet another man to lifetime power on the claim of sincere ignorance of his association with racism and sexism. Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito was repeatedly asked in this week’s hearings about his membership in the (...)

Black Commentator vs. The Wall Street Journal
By : Bruce Dixon - Monday January 16, 2006
By BC Associate Editor Bruce Dixon In their quest for absolute political hegemony in the United States, some elements of the Right now dare to claim to share with blacks - if not common cause - common conclusions about the state of race relations in America. In a January 8, 2006 piece weighted with the full freight of centuries of white supremacist delusions, Wall Street Journal columnist James Taranto claimed that BC’s January 5, 2006 Cover Story, "Katrina Study: Black Consensus, (...)

By Amira Hass For a month now, since the second week of December 2005, the Israel Defense Forces has severed the northern part of the West Bank from other sections, and prohibited residents from traveling toward Ramallah and points southward. The ban applies to some 800,000 people, residents of the Tul Karm, Nablus and Jenin provinces. Until January 2, the ban applied just to residents of Jenin and Tul Karm. Since then it has been extended to Nablus area residents. The IDF did not issue (...)

Venezuela’s Jews Defend Leftist President in Flap Over Remarks

By MARC PERELMAN The Venezuelan Jewish community leadership and several major American Jewish groups are accusing the Simon Wiesenthal Center of rushing to judgment by charging Venezuela’s leftist president, Hugo Chavez, with making antisemitic remarks. Officials of the leading organization of Venezuelan Jewry were preparing a letter this week to the center, complaining that it had misinterpreted Chavez’s words and had failed to consult with them before attacking the (...)

I had to e-mail about fifty people to come up with these items, but that’s OK. Keeping you cheerful is part of my job. I mean, the war could be wrong, but the Iraqi elections could still be good.

The Best of 2005
By : Wayne Besen - Wednesday December 28, 2005
by Wayne Besen This past year, my weekly column has opined on key issues affecting the American people. Heroes have been lauded, hypocrites exposed and crucial gay issues brought to the fore. Here is a snapshot of the tantalizing topics discussed in 2005: Adultery in the Military: It is time the military bring back adults who care more about winning wars than declaring a self-righteous war on adultery. We might be doing better in Iraq if the Pentagon started paying more attention to the (...)

Clarence Ray Allen, a Choctaw Indian, will turn 76 years old on Jan. 16, 2006, the day before the state intends to execute him on January 19, in San Quentin. A few months ago, Mr. Allen "flatlined" (died) from a heart attack... and was resuscitated by the medical staff, so that he can be properly executed in January 06! San Quentin Correctional Facility has issued a statement that Mr. Allen, although wheelchair bound, will have to walk 15 feet to the death gurney, because the death chamber (...)

It’s clear Bloomberg just didn’t get it

by Errol Louis Mayor Bloomberg yesterday confirmed that he stood by every word of his televised outburst against the Transport Workers Union’s leadership at the height of this week’s strike. He called them "thuggish," "selfish," "frauds" and the like. A host of critics, such as state Sen. Kevin Parker of Brooklyn, now accuse the mayor of being racially divisive.

Brokeback Mountain
By : David McReynolds - Thursday December 22, 2005
by David McReynolds Being retired, I decided I’d catch the 3 p.m. afternoon showing of Brokeback Mountain, thinking I’d have the theatre almost to myself. I was surprised to find it nearly half full. I’d wondered what possible audience (aside from gay men) there could be for a film about two cowboys and their homosexual affair. It would seem there is a wide audience - and the film merits it. Brokeback Mountain is not, in the usual sense, a gay film.Those looking for much (...)

Bookman: Gay marriage issue disappears until it’s time to head to the polls
By : JAY BOOKMAN - Thursday December 22, 2005
By JAY BOOKMAN ATLANTA - Think back a little more than a year ago, to the political campaigns of 2004. One of the hottest issues in presidential debates and congressional campaigns was the threat to traditional marriage posed by gay people seeking the right to wed. At the time, President Bush and others were warning that the threat could be averted only by the most serious step available under our political system, amending the U.S. Constitution to ban gay marriage outright.

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream

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 (...)

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 (...)
