The Battle for New Orleans : Only a Real Movement Can Win This War
By : Glen Ford and Peter Gamble - Sunday October 30, 2005
By Glen Ford and Peter Gamble New Orleans represents a challenge to African Americans, unprecedented since the epic struggles of the Fifties and Sixties. The perverse reality, to which African Americans must rise, is that the man-made disaster in the Gulf provides what may be the last chance to build a real Movement, encompassing the broadest sectors of Black America. Cruel history presents the catastrophe as an unwanted opportunity, a test of Black people’s capacity for the (...)

by Wayne Besen A New York socialite who claims a priest turned him into a sodomite is suing the Catholic Church for $5 million. J. David Enright IV, 51, says Rev. Joseph Romano molested him as a 7-year-old boy at summer camp, and as a result he was unable to live as a suburban heterosexual. "Romano bent my life," Enright told the New York Post. "I believe my life would be very different now. I’d probably be married, living in Greenwich, with four children in boarding school. I had a (...)

For Blacks, a Dream in Decline
By : LOUIS UCHITELLE - Monday October 24, 2005
1 comment
By LOUIS UCHITELLE THE Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. set forth the goal. Civil rights and union membership were to be intertwined. The labor movement, Dr. King wrote in 1958, "must concentrate its powerful forces on bringing economic emancipation to white and Negro by organizing them together in social equality." That happened in the 1960’s and 1970’s. But then unions lost bargaining power and members. And while labor leaders called attention to the overall decline, few took (...)

Death of America’s pre-eminent playwright
By : Brenda Payton - Tuesday October 11, 2005
by Brenda Payton writes for ANG newspapers. IT was probably predictable that the obituaries of August Wilson would describe him as the preeminent African-American playwright. It’s not that it’s an incorrect description, it just isn’t broad enough. Given the scope of his body of work and the remarkable accomplishments of his career, he is arguably the preeminent American playwright. Paradoxically, one of his major themes was addressing that discrepancy, making the point (...)

Sibel Edmonds: Translator caught in web

When Sibel Edmonds was a young girl, her father, a physician in Iran, was asked to falsify an autopsy finding. Angrily, he refused, daring the authorities to retaliate. At home, he told his family: "Things like this do not happen in truly democratic civil societies - like America." Sibel still clings to her father’s words, but her Kafka-esque encounter with the U.S. government is challenging her faith. She wanders a wonderland of classified documents and covert hearings, waiting to (...)

Playwright August Wilson dies at 60 : Portrayed history of black America
By : Ed Siegel - Tuesday October 4, 2005
By Ed Siegel August Wilson, the country’s preeminent African-American playwright, died yesterday at the age of 60 from liver cancer. Mr. Wilson’s main body of work was a cycle of 10 plays, each set in a different decade in the 20th century, thus covering 100 years of African-American history and attitudes. They featured large ensembles of black actors playing characters debating how to carry themselves in the face of limited opportunities and resources. Although white racism (...)

It was the year Muhammad Ali, stripped of his heavyweight title for resisting the draft, spoke on 200 college campuses and asked the question, “Can they take my title without me being whupped?” It was the year Bill Russell’s Boston Celtics became champions once again, yet the player-coach saw his house vandalized by bigots.

Wake of the Hurricane : Etan Thomas Rises to the Occasion

That’s not surprising, when you consider that more than 100 professional athletes come from the Gulf Coast, an area whose deep poverty, institutionalized racism and year-round sunshine combine to offer the requisite conditions (...)

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.

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 (...)

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 (...)
