’60s Freedom Riders celebrated at LMU
By : R. W. Dellinger - Sunday December 11, 2005
By R. W. Dellinger "The greatness of our nation was the persistent, steady struggle of people, many unnoticed and invisible, who laid the foundation by which we live today. And the struggle of the ’50s and ’60s was one of the great movements," declared Rev. James Lawson at a Nov. 11 luncheon hosted by Loyola Marymount University to honor civil rights activists. The pastor emeritus of Holman United Methodist Church in Los Angeles, a legendary figure in the civil rights (...)

Overcoming Apartheid
By : Jonathan Kozol - Wednesday December 7, 2005
1 comment
by JONATHAN KOZOL Apartheid education, rarely mentioned in the press or openly confronted even among once-progressive educators, is alive and well and rapidly increasing now in the United States. Hypersegregated inner-city schools—in which one finds no more than five or ten white children, at the very most, within a student population of as many as 3,000—are the norm, not the exception, in most northern urban areas today. "At the beginning of the twenty-first century," (...)

by Jenni Evans | Johannesburg, South Africa The government has noted a ruling by the Constitutional Court on Thursday that same-sex marriages be allowed and will respect the judgement, spokesperson Joel Netshitenze said. "The Department of Home Affairs will assess what practical steps will be needed to give effect to the change in the law and make appropriate recommendations to the minister," he said. He also noted that the court gave Parliament 12 months to effect the necessary change (...)

Female Africans Take Lead in Prize-Winning Fiction

By Jane Ciabattari African women are taking over artistic territory once controlled by men and are now telling the continent’s new stories in books and movies. The final article in our eight-part series on emerging female leaders in Africa. PRINCETON, N.J. (WOMENSENEWS)—Who will tell the stories of contemporary Africa?

Georgia’s Fraudulent Anti-Fraud Legislation
By : Julian Bond - Saturday December 3, 2005
by Julian Bond WASHINGTON (NNPA) - What is it with some people? Why do they persist in believing racial minorities are inveterate cheaters at the polls? What kind of racist criminal profiling takes place in their minds? Now comes Georgia State Rep. Sue Burmesiter (R-Augusta) telling the United States Department of Justice that if Black people in her district "are not paid to vote, they don’t go to the polls." She predicted that if a restrictive law she proposed was adopted, fewer (...)

The masking of a conservative
By : Derrick Z. Jackson - Saturday December 3, 2005
By Derrick Z. Jackson PRIDE MUST go before he falls. This is why Samuel Alito hopped to liberal burrows on Capitol Hill to proclaim the burial of his conservative ideology. In his 1985 application to a senior post in the Reagan administration, Alito wrote: ’’I am particularly proud of my contributions in recent cases in which the government has argued in the Supreme Court that racial and ethnic quotas should not be allowed and that the Constitution does not protect a right to (...)

By Dror Mishani and Aurelia Smotriez PARIS - The first thing the French-Jewish philosopher Alain Finkielkraut said to us when we met one evening at Paris’ elegant Le Rostand cafe, where the interior is decorated with Oriental-style pictures and the terrace faces the Luxembourg Gardens, was "I heard that even Haaretz published an article identifying with the riots." This remark, uttered with some vehemence, pretty much sums up the feelings of Finkielkraut - one of the most prominent (...)

The Champ Meets the Chump
By : Dave Zirin - Tuesday November 22, 2005

by Dave Zirin The presidency of George W. Bush is collapsing under the weight of its own incompetence. The polls speak for themselves—only 35 percent of us approve of his job performance. Fifty-six percent—including one in four Republicans—say the war in Iraq was not worth fighting, and more than half believe Bush intentionally misled the country to bring the United States into war. The response from the White House has been grimly predictable: Admit no mistakes and spin, (...)

Blaming Islam Is Dishonest
By : Michael Coren - Monday November 21, 2005
Blaming Islam Is Dishonest Michael Coren November 19, 2005 Last week I wrote that the riots in France were more about the culture of 50 Cent than bin Laden and that to blame the violence solely on Islam was a gross misreading of the situation. The neo-con web world had a fit, reminding me that when it comes to abuse and stupidity the right and the left are similarly gifted. In fact, neo-conservatives increasingly resemble the left in their simplistic and formulaic analyses and responses (...)

France now accepts the need for social justice. No petition, peaceful march or letter to an MP could have achieved this by Gary Younge ’If there is no struggle, there is no progress," said the African American abolitionist Frederick Douglass. "Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation are men who want crops without ploughing up the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters ... Power (...)

Civil Rights Focus Shift Roils Staff At Justice. Veterans Exit Division as Traditional Cases Decline

By Dan Eggen The Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, which has enforced the nation’s anti-discrimination laws for nearly half a century, is in the midst of an upheaval that has driven away dozens of veteran lawyers and has damaged morale for many of those who remain, according to former and current career employees. Nearly 20 percent of the division’s lawyers left in fiscal 2005, in part because of a buyout program that some lawyers believe was aimed at pushing (...)

Too Pretty A Picture

By E.J. Graff Isteeled myself as the camera panned slowly over a vast, sprawling mine operation. I’d come to see the new Charlize Theron movie, "North Country," which is supposed to be based on a real story of sexual harassment at the Eveleth Taconite Co., in Minnesota’s Iron Range. I was expecting the film to bring alive the hostile environment the women hired there in the 1970s and ’80s had endured. If it was at all true to life,the moviecould be rough going. But I (...)

ROSA PARKS: WHY ONE PERSON MATTERS

by William Fisher Ask any non-American to name three leaders of the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 60s, and chances are they’ll stop after one: Martin Luther King. But in fact the movement had many leaders. Malcolm X went from being a street-wise Boston hoodlum to one of America’s most influential black nationalist leaders, advocating black pride, economic self-reliance, and identity politics. He was assassinated in New York City in 1965. Stokely Carmichael saw (...)

France to Impose Curfews to Quell Rioting

By JOCELYN GECKER France will impose curfews under a state-of-emergency law and call up police reservists to stop rioting that has spread out of Paris’ suburbs and into nearly 300 cities and towns across the country, the prime minister said Monday, calling a return to order "our No. 1 responsibility." The tough new measures came as France’s worst civil unrest in decades entered a 12th night, with rioters in the southern city of Toulouse setting fire to a bus after sundown and (...)

French Muslims face job discrimination

Days of rioting in the bleaker suburbs of Paris have highlighted discontent among many French youths of North African origin. As part of a series on French Muslims, the BBC News website’s Henri Astier looks at the issue of discrimination, a leading source of frustration in France’s unemployment-riddled ghettos. Sadek recently quit his job delivering groceries near Saint-Denis, just north of Paris. He was tired of climbing stairs with heavy bags. Sadek, 31, has a secondary (...)

Swoopes is the most prominent women’s basketball player of her generation: a five-time all-star, three-time Olympic gold medalist and the WNBA’s only three-time MVP. And in a tribute only corporate America could render, Swoopes is the only female player to have her own basketball shoe: Nike’s Air Swoopes.

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 (...)

LIVE, from the State that brought you Senator Joseph McCarthy, Wisconsin voters now proudly present, fresh from his recall election victory, Governor Scott Walker! 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 (...)
