MALIK RAHIM is a veteran of the Black Panther Party in New Orleans, a housing rights activist and recent Green Party candidate for New Orleans City Council. He lives in the Algiers neighborhood, the only part of New Orleans that isn’t flooded. They have no power, but the water is still good, and the phones work. Their neighborhood could be sheltering and feeding at least 40,000 refugees, he says, but they are allowed to help no one. This report from New Orleans was published by the (...)

Do You Know What It Means to Lose New Orleans?
By : ANNE RICE - Tuesday September 6, 2005

By ANNE RICE La Jolla, Calif. WHAT do people really know about New Orleans? Do they take away with them an awareness that it has always been not only a great white metropolis but also a great black city, a city where African-Americans have come together again and again to form the strongest African-American culture in the land? The first literary magazine ever published in Louisiana was the work of black men, French-speaking poets and writers who brought together their work in three (...)

What Happens to a Race Deferred
By : JASON DePARLE - Monday September 5, 2005
1 comment
By JASON DePARLE WASHINGTON THE white people got out. Most of them, anyway. If television and newspaper images can be deemed a statistical sample, it was mostly black people who were left behind. Poor black people, growing more hungry, sick and frightened by the hour as faraway officials counseled patience and warned that rescues take time. What a shocked world saw exposed in New Orleans last week wasn’t just a broken levee. It was a cleavage of race and class, at once familiar and (...)

President’s photo-op may fool you, but not me by Jennifer Monroe NEW ORLEANS, LA — (OfficialWire) — 09/04/05 — More than five days after it should have happened, thousands of storm victims in New Orleans and the surrounding area are finally being bused and airlifted to safety. Because the Bush administration does not want to admit the truth, the public isn’t being told how many people were killed by Hurricane Katrina’s floods and how many more American (...)

The Victims, ’Largely Poor and Black’
By : DAVID GONZALEZ - Saturday September 3, 2005
2 comments
By DAVID GONZALEZ The scenes of floating corpses, scavengers fighting for food and desperate throngs seeking any way out of New Orleans have been tragic enough. But for many African- American leaders, there is a growing outrage that many of those still stuck at the center of this tragedy were people who for generations had been pushed to the margins of society. The victims, they note, were largely black and poor, those who toiled in the background of the tourist havens, living in (...)

Hurricane Katrina: Is Looting a Question of Skin Color?
By : SPIEGEL - Saturday September 3, 2005
by SPIEGEL ONLINE If the pain and destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina wasn’t enough, now the looting has started on the streets of New Orleans. But many people simply need to feed their families and are consequently forced to "borrow" food from waterlogged grocery stores. So what makes somebody a looter? And does it have anything to do with the color of their skin? It didn’t take long for reports of looting to filter through. No sooner had Hurricane Katrina’s winds (...)

A Gay Israel?
By : Wayne Besen - Monday August 15, 2005

by Wayne Besen In 2004, a group of gay activists took over Cato Island, a small sand bar in the Coral Sea off the northeast coast of Australia. They planted a rainbow flag on the beach and declared it the world’s first gay kingdom in protest of anti-gay legislation in Australia. When I originally read this news story I got a good laugh while I drank my morning coffee. After a recent spasm of anti-gay violence in several countries, I’m no longer chuckling. The merits of (...)

The Higher Calling of the Low Road

by Wayne Besen It is the 21st Century and the cover of Time Magazine has pictures of a chimpanzee and God under the bold headline, "Evolution Wars". I turn on the television and a non-descript talking head is promoting the bizarre idea that tax cuts for the rich lead to increased tax revenue. I flip the channel and an effeminate man is lisping about how he prayed away the gay. How did such weird and scientifically bankrupt ideas find their way into mainstream culture? The answer is at (...)

by Vijay Dutt, London Hate crimes in Britain have soared by 600 per cent causing the fear of a race divide in multicultural British society. Scotland Yard figures show there was 269 religious hate crimes, motivated by animosity towards Muslims since July 7 compared with 40 in the same period last year. A direct outcome of the two bomb attacks on London Transport system, such hate offences have jumped by nearly 600% in the capital. Most were verbal abuses or minor assaults, but it also (...)

Charge of “Anti-Semitism” Used to Provoke Immigration of French Jews to Israel By Samah Jabr - October 2004 JUST 10 DAYS after he called on France’s 600,000 Jewish citizens to move to Israel “immediately” to escape what he called “the spread of the wildest anti-Semitism,” Prime Minister Ariel Sharon welcomed the first 200 French Jewish immigrants to arrive in Israel.

Zach Vs. Pat by Wayne Besen In May, 16-year old Zach told his fundamentalist Christian parents that he is gay. Horrified by the news, they vowed to fix him by sending him to an "ex-gay" boot camp in Memphis to be reprogrammed. Like a modern day message in a bottle, Zach used his Internet blog to send an SOS. Miraculously, his desperate plea for help washed up on the shores of sanity and circulated in cyberspace at warp speed. "I told my parents I was gay," he wrote. "This didn’t go (...)

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 (...)

Imagine, if you will, that the United States government passes a law banning advertisers from sponsoring commercials on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show or Rupert Murdoch’s Fox (Faux) “News” Network. On one hand, there would be two decided advantages to this ban: The National IQ would undoubtedly increase several percentage points, and manipulative pseudo-journalists would no longer be able to appeal to the basest instincts in human nature for ratings and profit while (...)

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. This, after all, is a man who openly declared he is trying to destroy the rights of workers through a “divide and conquer” strategy; who received 61% 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 (...)
