          American Airlines ya no aceptará dinero en efectivo en el Aeropuerto Internacional de Cancún      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
American Airlines anunció hoy que a partir del 20 de agosto de 2018, la aerolínea ya no hará transacciones en efectivo en el Aeropuerto Internacional de Cancún (CUN), Quintana Roo.

A partir de dicha fecha, los pasajeros deberán de utilizar tarjetas de crédito o débito para hacer cualquier transacción en el aeropuerto, incluyendo la compra de boletos y el pago del equipaje facturado.

"A nivel global, American se encuentra en una fase de transición para que en cada uno de los aeropuertos donde operamos se realicen transacciones sin efectivo, permitiéndole a los miembros de nuestro equipo a ayudar a nuestros clientes de una manera más rápida y eficiente", dijo Alfredo Jaimes, gerente general de American en Cancún.

"Alejarse de las transacciones en efectivo también reduce la complejidad del trabajo para nuestros agentes, quienes ya no tendrán que preocuparse por manejar dinero, encontrar el cambio exacto o cuadrar una caja de efectivo al final del día. Estas son noticias positivas para nuestros clientes y para nuestro equipo en el aeropuerto", añadió Jaimes, en un comunicado.

De esta manera, el Aeropuerto Internacional de Cancún se suma a los más de 50 aeropuertos en los que opera American en todo el mundo en los que ya no se realizan transacciones de la aerolínea en efectivo, entre los que se encuentran los aeropuertos internaciones de Miami, Nueva York – JFK, Los Ángeles y Dallas/Fort Worth, entre otros.

En México, American establecerá próximamente el proceso de transacciones sin efectivo en los aeropuertos de Los Cabos (SJD), Puerto Vallarta (PVR) y Cozumel (CZM).

American ofrece hasta 685 vuelos semanales entre México y los Estados Unidos, desde sus centros de conexiones en Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Filadelfia, Los Ángeles, Miami, Nueva York y Phoenix, sirviendo a 21 aeropuertos internacionales.

Y muy pronto serán 22 aeropuertos en el País: Aguascalientes, Cancún, Ciudad de México, Chihuahua, Cozumel, Guadalajara, Hermosillo, León, Mazatlán, Mérida, Monterrey, Morelia, Puebla, Puerto Vallarta, Querétaro, San José del Cabo, San Luis Potosí, Torreón, Zacatecas y vuelos por temporada a Zihuatanejo y Manzanillo, y en diciembre una nueva ruta a Oaxaca.

Online dating isn't easy, and now we have the data to prove it.

A new study, published in the journal Science Advances Wednesday — which analyzed data from a pool of tens of thousands of online dating profiles in New York, Boston, Seattle, and Chicago — found that people consistently message potential mates who are out of their league.

What a shock.

Study authors Elizabeth Bruch and Mark Newman pulled information from profiles and plugged it into an algorithm which took into account age, education, gender, and race/ethnicity in relation to the number of messages received among heterosexual individuals. Read more...

          Michael Brantley delivers another Cleveland Indians walk-off win in 5-4 victory against Minnesota Twins      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Michael Brantley's RBI single lifted the Cleveland Indians to their second straight walk-off win.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The winning run was 90 feet away in the ninth inning for the second day in a row. The Cleveland Indians had the Minnesota Twins right where they wanted them.

Michael Brantley delivered an RBI single that barely squeezed under the glove of Twins first baseman Miguel Sano as Greg Allen crossed the plate to give the Tribe a 5-4 win at Progressive Field Thursday afternoon. It was the Indians' second walk-off victory in the last 24 hours, the first time they've posted back-to-back walk-offs since Aug. 18-19, 2016.

The Indians have four walk-off victories in 2018. Andrew Miller (2-3, 3.44) got the win with a hitless inning of relief in the ninth. Minnesota suffered its 12th walk-off loss of the season, the most in the majors.

Manager Terry Francona said having Brantley at the plate with the game on the line was reassuring.

"You're always kind of on edge, but boy it's nice to have him up in that situation," Francona said. "You know the at-bat's not going to get ahead of him or be too big. He's gonna swing at a strike. And rarely does he pull off. All the things you're looking for in a situation like that."

For Brantley, the game-winner marked his first since opening day last year against the Chicago White Sox.

"I just gotta get the job done for my team," Brantley said. "Greg Allen did a great job leading off the inning getting on base and stealing second. Francisco Lindor put me in that opportunity by moving the guy over. That's a team effort all the way around right there."

Allen, who joined the team earlier in the day after Leonys Martin went on the disabled list, led off the ninth with a single against losing pitcher Addison Reed (1-6). He stole second and went to third on a Francisco Lindor groundout. Allen has hits in each of his last four major league games and is batting .500 (7-for-14) in that span.

"I would hope that's really good for his confidence," Francona said. "He stepped right in and directly helped us win a game with his bat, with his legs, almost with his glove."

Staked to a 4-0 lead, Tribe starting pitcher Corey Kluber looked like he was in complete command, pitching a shutout until the fifth inning when he allowed a leadoff double by Max Kepler, who scored two batters later when Jake Cave hit a sacrifice fly. Allen dove for the ball off Kepler's bat, but came up short in left center field. 

Minnesota tied the score at 4-4 in the sixth on Jorge Polanco's first homer of the season, a three-run shot into the right field seats that came two pitches after right fielder Melky Cabrera's drop turned a fly ball off the bat of Eddie Rosario into a 370-foot single.

It was the 21st home run Kluber has allowed, his first since July 23 against Pittsburgh. The Indians ace pitched seven innings but took a no-decision, striking out seven and not allowing a walk.

Cleveland broke through in the second against Twins starter Jose Berrios when Yonder Alonso smashed his 20th home run, a solo shot to right. It's the second time in Alonso's nine-year career he's reached the 20-homer plateau.

Later in the inning, Lindor lined a 1-1 fastball from Berrios to right that scored Melky Cabrera and Jason Kipnis. Lindor's RBI double in the fourth plated Kipnis and pushed Cleveland's advantage to 4-0.

Lindor has collected at least two hits in five straight games, and leads the majors with 47 multi-hit outings. The double upped his MLB-leading extra-base hit total to 68, three ahead of teammate Jose Ramirez.

Yer outta here

Twins hitting coach James Rowson earned his first career ejection in the seventh inning when home plate umpire Adrian Johnson gave him the heave-ho. Minnesota's Ehrie Adrianza was called out on a 91 mph sinker by Kluber, and Rowson argued the call.

What it means

Cleveland evened its season record against the Twins at 8-8, including 4-3 at Progressive Field. The Tribe's lead in the A.L. Central Division is at 11 games with 48 remaining.

The pitches

Berrios threw 97 pitches, 54 (56 percent) for strikes. Kluber threw 117 pitches, 77 (66 percent) for strikes.

Thanks for coming

The Twins and Indians drew 25,942 on Thursday afternoon. First pitch was at 1:10 p.m. with a temperature of 77 degrees.

Next

The Indians begin a six-game trip to Chicago and Cincinnati when they take on the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field. Right-hander Shane Bieber (6-2, 4.58 ERA) will face Chicago lefty Carlos Rodon (3-3, 2.94) on Friday at 8:10 p.m. SportsTime Ohio, WMMS and WTAM will carry the game.

It will mark Bieber's first career appearance against the White Sox, the only AL Central team that he has not faced. Bieber is 3-0 with a 3.58 ERA against the rest of the division.

          Six Flags Great America Hard at Work on Teasing New for 2019 Project      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Something new is on its way to Six Flags Great America in 2019... and the park has started a series of "Road to Glory" teaser videos leading up to the announcement at the end of this month.

Above is the first video, which features a water park visitor and his race crew... I say race crew since they are dressed like that and the video features some graphics that are seemingly race themed.  The visitor gets sun lotion sprayed and heads off on his mission, "up there."

The second video, above, has now been released and in it we see the visitor and his crew sending him down the park's Dive Bomber trap-door drop water slide.

The crew times him on the slide, and after telling him he can "do better," they make a very clear point to show that the time registered exactly 2 seconds.  I'm not sure exactly what that means, but they were very specific in showing that.  We will have to wait and see what kind of hints the third video gives us!

As for where this project is going, it would appear as though the park will be utilizing the space they gained when they removed the Pictorium earlier this year.  The structure appears on the 2018 park map, so one has to wonder if its removal was a last minute decision.

Either way, it's a large plot of land that is now open, which is nicely demonstrated above.  It's also located adjacent to the most recently developed part of Hurricane Harbor, and with the theme of the videos it would seem that a new water attraction is on the way.

Unless that's a red herring?  Stay tuned to find out.

          Re: Car pooling? That’s so ’70s      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Mostly empty cars aren't a very efficient way to move a lot of people.

Mostly full cars are actually a really good way to move a lot of people medium range distances (upto 20 miles we'll say, and I'll keep saying it but honestly it could be shorter, or longer I really don't know what the ideal number is here) to many disparate destinations (size of the car and number of passengers and stops is again, just logistics, algorithms can figure this out.)
If all the people are going the same place a bus would be better, but most of us aren't all going to and from the same places.

Self driving cars change the distance on the last mile problem... why build new transit unless you have housing more than 20 miles away from existing transit?

Right now people are comfortable walking a half mile (Again throwing out numbers might be longer, might be shorter) and maybe electric scooters will lengthen that to a mile (depending on the weather). if electric cars change that distance to 20 miles, you need 20-40 fewer stops for your mass transit to still be effective.

Really if we believe self driving cars are coming (And believe my made up, examplitory numbers) then we should focus on building transit that is longer runs, fewer stops, and probably faster (preferable faster than a self driving car to encourage people to use it rather than self driving cars).

High speed Rail line from MSP to Duluth with one stop in the middle so self driving cars can comfortable fill in the gap for anywhere along the 35 corridor.

High speed rail to rochester with no stops and self driving cars can fill in the gap. High speed rail with 3-4 stops from here to chicago.

Of course that assumes we believe self driving cars are coming... and they will be more desirable than existing mass transit options... I think they will... eventually.

Without looking it up, do any of your know Javier Baez's actual first name. Now that you've looked it up, we can move on. How do I know you looked it up? Because I didn't tell you and unless you're a legit Javy fan, you didn't know. Baez currently has 337 points which puts puts him in the top twelve batters. He's second among second basemen behind Jose Ramirez (472 points) and fourth at short behind Francisco Lindor (403), Alex Bregman (373) and Manny Machado (367). For years first base has been the position with the big hitters, but right now four of the top twelve hitters have shortstop eligibility both this year and next. If we look at the top fifteen then we can also include Didi Gregorius (324). I guess shortstop is the new first base. The only first base eligible batters in the top fifteen are Freddie Freeman (335) and Matt Carpenter (339).

          The Evolving Ideologies of American Jewish Summer Camp      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Summer camp might advertise itself as a simple return to nature, some healthy fresh air and wholesome fun, but there is not now and never has been anything simple about it. American Jewish summer camp in particular has a very long and winding ideological history, one dotted with racism, socialism, political protest, and above all a sense that summer camp is a well of power, a resource to be optimized.

Jews attend summer camp at a higher rate than Americans as a whole, though not nearly as high a rate as Mormons, but the particulars of the Jewish camping experience—begun due to exclusion, changing rapidly due to politics and social movements and the Holocaust—put it in a unique place.

Summer camping in the United States began as a movement in the late 19th century, a sort of rebellion against increasing urbanization and industrialization. By the late 1920s, Jewish summer camps had gotten explicitly ideological: socialist, communist, anarchist, Zionist, Yiddish. Despite this, they were, and remained until after World War II, almost entirely secular. The Yiddish camps focused on Yiddish language and culture, and the Zionist camps on building, farming, and a connection to Israel; neither put much of an emphasis on religion.

A socialist summer camp would have no individual money, and any packages a camper received from home would be divided equally to the rest of the camp. Labor was highly valued; a punishment for bad behavior would never be, say, cleaning the bathrooms, because bathroom duty was a noble and important role in the camp society.

Zionist summer camps prepared kids to move to Palestine (which they sometimes called EY, which stands for Eretz Yisrael, or “the land of Israel”). The kids were taught to farm and build, and focused on Jewish arts and music, including would come to be called Israeli folk dancing. Yiddish camps, which often included a nearby camp for parents, taught Yiddish language and history. Israel, or Palestine, or Jewish history, mostly replaced the weird often-fake American Indian mythology that was and remains so prevalent in non-Jewish summer camps. But everything changed with World War II.

article-image

Before the Second World War, American Jews had never seen themselves as the center of the Jewish world: that was in Poland, Lithuania, Germany, Hungary. American Jews were unsettled, immature. They hadn’t unpacked in their new home yet. But following the Holocaust, the weight of leading Jewish culture settled on the shoulders of the Americans. Summer camp was a vital part of this effort. Such camps had for decades been seen by various groups—the labor socialists, cultural Zionists—as a fundamental tool for shaping the youth. “Camp leaders were decidedly critical of ‘suburban Judaism’ that they took to be an inadequate Jewish life created by their campers’ parents who, to their minds, had limited education and too little understanding of Judaism,” writes Prell in an article on the history of Jewish summer camps. There was also, says Prell, a major concern that the parents of baby boomers had been too focused on assimilation rather than developing and maintaining a distinct American Jewish culture.

Summer camp had already proven a valuable place to shape the youth in non-religious molds, as seen in the socialist and Zionist camps from past decades. But in the wake of genocide, some of these Jews in positions of power within Jewish communities—prominent rabbis, organizers, spokespeople—decided that those tools should be applied to Jewish religion and culture.

This is when the first religious Jewish summer camps began. Camp Massad—the word means “foundation” in Hebrew—launched in 1941, servicing the New York area, first in the Catskills and then across the Pennsylvania border in the Poconos. (The Poconos and Catskills are the same mountain range; they just have different names in Pennsylvania and New York.) Massad was the first major summer camp to use the Hebrew language exclusively; it also brought in a contingent of Jewish campers from what would shortly become Israel to promote the possibility of a Jewish state, and emphasize the importance of the idea of Israel to American Jews.

Massad was extremely influential not just for Jewish summer camps but also for worldwide Judaism. Hebrew, until this point, was not widely spoken, with Jews speaking either English or various localized languages like Yiddish. Many modern Hebrew words, like those for sports, were actually invented at Massad.

article-image

Among the Massad campers were the young Chicagoan founders of what would become Camp Ramah, one of the most important Jewish summer camps in history. Unlike most other Jewish camps, Ramah was (and is) a network of camps under a centralized deciding force, in this case the Conservative movement.

As a quick primer for those unfamiliar: American religious Judaism is split up into several branches usually called denominations. The four biggest are Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, and Reconstructionist, and they differ mostly in the level of observance (roughly those are in descending order), in addition to a bunch of smaller liturgical issues.

Ramah was set up and owned by the Jewish Theological Seminary, the dominant force in Conservative Judaism, during the early 1940s, specifically as a tool for Jewish education. The first Ramah opened in Conover, Wisconsin in 1947, and swiftly expanded. Today they have locations in Wisconsin, Ontario, the Berkshires, Georgia, Colorado, California, and elsewhere. There were often in areas without large Jewish populations; Wisconsin was also home to an important Reform camp. I asked Sarna whether it was difficult for Jewish camps to set up in non-Jewish areas. He said there weren’t really any conflicts. “Many of these places where there were summer camps, they were perfectly happy to have Jews in the summer,” he said. “As long as they left.”

The JTS was a little hesitant at first to spend all this money on summer camps, but this was a dramatic time for the Jewish people, and they were convinced that summer camps might be the best and only hope for Jewish survival. “Jewish education represented both a defensive response to adversity and a form of cultural resistance, a resolve to maintain Judaism in the face of opposition and danger,” wrote Jonathan Sarna, a professor of Jewish history at Brandeis University, in an article on the topic. “It also promised to prepare the community for the new responsibilities that it faced in the wake of the European Jewish catastrophe.”

article-image

The camp founders felt a weight on their shoulders. “They're overwhelmingly contemptuous of the parents of the baby boom, who were raised in America and who know almost nothing about Jewish life,” says Prell. “They just didn't have the upbringing, because their parents were immigrants and didn't know how to translate their old life.”

Ramah, and the camps that would follow, were focused on addressing this issue. A phrase you see again and again, says Prell, is this: “The whole day will be ours.” Post-Holocaust American Jews realized what the socialist and Zionist camps before them realized: summer camp is the only place where they can have unfettered access to Jewish kids, the best opportunity to shape young minds for the future. “There is this sense that we can take clay and mold it into a meaningful Jewish life for these kids,” says Prell. “And we can do it because we have them all day, and we can do it because we can get them away from their parents. We can get them away from transistor radios, and the suburbs, which is fairly new to Jews.” That shaping took various forms: instilling a sense of history, pride, and knowledge, but also social justice and civil rights, and a desire to form Jewish families and raise more Jewish kids.

This began a wildly experimental phase for Jewish summer camps, one that would last into the 1970s. The 1940s and 1950s were focused on making American Jewish kids understand that they lived in two worlds, the Jewish world and the American world, and that both were vital. America as a whole at this time, and especially in the Jewish community, was very into American triumphalism; We beat the Nazis! These camps, while they kept Kosher and observed Shabbat, also celebrated the Fourth of July.

article-image

But the coming of the 1960s meant a huge upheaval in the American social fabric. Camp Ramah was centrally owned, but the Reform summer camps were all independent, and the entire system was much more fluid than it might seem. Jews in the 1960s were heavily involved in the anti-war effort, in the civil rights movement, in equal rights for women, in immigration, anti-racism, drug legalization, sex positivity, all kinds of progressive movements. Many of the young counselors at Jewish summer camps were, during the non-summer months, organizers and protestors in college, and their work assuredly did not stop once they went out to Wisconsin or the Catskills for the summer. This wasn’t necessarily unique to Jewish counselors, but the Jewish history of activism and Jewish participation in the civil rights movement made it pretty likely that Jewish camps would follow suit.

In some camps, counselors would perform role-playing. They’d come into the mess hall during breakfast and, without saying anything, gather up all the kids with a certain hair color or eye color. Those kids would be separated from the group for a day or more, made to eat different food, do different activities. Then they’d be reunited and the entire camp would discuss. What does it mean to be a member of an ethnic minority? How does this apply to the Holocaust and to race relations in America? What responsibility do American Jews have to stamp out racial injustice?

Role-playing extended to simpler messages as well, attempting to get Jewish kids to embrace their Jewishness and make Jewish choices. These efforts could sometimes be clumsy, and even offensive. One former camper, who asked to remain anonymous, recalled a role-playing game in which young campers—she was seven years old at the time—were given an egg, representing their “future child,” and a box. The egg would be placed into a box and rolled down a hill; the materials given for padding would vary based on their answers to questions. Pick the right answer and you’d get some protective padding. The wrong one? Rocks and sticks, which would cause the eggbaby to break.

“The question I remember is: Your kid is going to kindergarten and you are considering two schools,” says the former camper. “One is a secular school with computers (a big deal in 1994 or whenever this was) and one is a Jewish school with no computers.” She picked the secular school with computers and was promptly given a rock.

“These are camps not concerned just with summer fun,” says Prell. “These are camps that are trying to teach, as many left-wing camps at the time were trying to teach, what these issues have to do with us, what is our responsibility and how are we going to act on it.” Camp Ramah instituted a program for the older campers called American Seminar, in which campers were required to go to nearby cities and register voters, or volunteer in mental hospitals, or help repaint the houses of black Americans. “Camp is where I first learned about social justice and activism and that I, as a young person, could actually do something,” says Valerie Weisler, who attended a Ramah day camp and then worked there as a counselor.

It’s also worth noting that there was, and remains, a wide variety of Jewish summer camp experiences: not just in the type of ideology, but also in degree. Many Jewish summer camps were, even during the 1960s, pretty low-key. “I really don’t think a lot of the counselors’ political views were rubbed off on us,” says Barbara Berger, who attended a Jewish camp called Camp Oquago starting in 1969. But Berger, who grew up fairly non-observant in a very Jewish suburb of New York, and ended up raising kids in a Pennsylvania suburb with few Jews, says Jewish summer camp affected her feelings about Judaism. “It made me realize that, moving out here ... that I wanted for my kids to make Jewish friends, and have a connection that way. I always lit the candles on Friday nights when the kids were young, because I knew I had to make an extra effort out here.”

article-image

Summer camp suffered a downturn in popularity in the 1970s and 1980s in general, and Jewish summer camps found themselves in a tricky situation. Jews were now assimilated enough that many Jewish kids attended a non-Jewish camp. (I myself went to a YMCA camp in the early 2000s; despite the “Young Men’s Christian Association” thing, my camp was heavily Jewish.) Today, camps are rising in popularity again, but Jewish summer camps have entirely new issues to deal with. The reign of Trump, rising anti-Semitism in Europe and the U.S., and above all the issue of the Israeli occupation of Palestine are major topics that counselors are attempting to address. In 2018, the effects of the #MeToo movement have many Jewish camps looking into sexual harassment; a minor scandal found Camp Ramah refusing to allow what it called “anti-Israel educational messages” at camp.

“Campers are definitely taught to love Israel unconditionally, which can be rather controversial now,” says Ivy Cohen, who attended a Reform summer camp in Massachusetts. “I do feel like as I got older, more frequently we were given various sides of an issue as well as different perspectives, and encouraged to form our own beliefs.”

Summer camps in the U.S. have never, ever been simple. Whether an attempt to fight urbanization or raise good socialists, Zionists, American Jews, or progressives, summer camps have power. They provide a place where children and teenagers can encounter viewpoints and education that don’t exist in their normal lives, but could shape their futures. In some cases, that can provoke conflict at home. Jewish kids might come back from summer camp and wonder why their parents don’t keep Kosher, why they don’t go to synagogue every week, why nobody talks about moving to Israel. In some cases, Jewish camp culture influenced non-camp religion; Israeli culture and folk art became prominent in Reform synagogues where it had never been before, and even the actual music changed, with a new form of folk-influenced religious music that came from campers.

On the whole, Jewish summer camps really did work in some ways; many Jewish homes became more religious. A study found that Camp Ramah alums are much more likely than other Jews to spend time in or “feel an emotional attachment to” Israel, attend synagogue regularly, and marry within the faith. These studies have focused on religious Judaism; there is not a corpus of data about the secular effects of Jewish summer camp. Are alums of Jewish summer camp more likely to donate to charity, vote for progressive candidates, take part in protests? We don’t really know. But those have been goals of Jewish summer camps, whether or not they’re explicitly stated. Says Weisler: “Jewish camping molded me as a Jewish person, and a person, period.”

Hi,
  This is a brand new in the box Winchester Model 1873.  It fires the 45 long Colt cartridge. I took it in on trade and after considering keeping it, I have decided to put it up for sale.  It is absolutely stunning.  The pictures truly do not adequatly show it's beauty.  The receiver is case hardened and is stunning, wood is flawless. It has to be seen to really be appreciated.  Everything about it screams to put it in a display case but the real beauty would be to actually take it out and shoot it.  It comes with the box and all manuals, etc.  Again, it has never been shot and is brand new. No dissapointments.

          Kevin Hart Launches New $600,000 Scholarship Program with UNCF and KIPP      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Kevin Hart: Profile

Following on his generous $100,000 scholarship gift made in 2015 through UNCF (the United Negro College Fund) to four deserving college students, actor and comedian Kevin Hart has joined forces with UNCF and KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program) to help 18 more KIPP students earn a college degree.

Through a new UNCF scholarship program launched in partnership with Kevin Hart’s Help From The Hart Charity and KIPP Public Schools, the $600,000 scholarship will provide funding to support KIPP students from eight different cities who are attending 11 historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).

UNCF is the largest provider of college scholarships for students of color in the U.S., awarding more than $100 million in college scholarships annually to deserving students. The 18 Help From The Hart Charity Scholarship recipients have been selected based on their academic and personal accomplishments and may receive substantive renewable awards based on need.

“The Help From The Hart Charity Scholarship will not only support students, but will also demonstrate support for HBCUs,” said UNCF CEO and President Michael L. Lomax. “Research shows that HBCUs matter, and that HBCU students are having a positive college experience, but they also have an unmet financial need. Together, Kevin and KIPP have made an investment that will have a significant impact. We can’t thank them enough for their support.”
“Education and knowledge are powerful,” said Hart. “I just wanted to do my part in providing opportunities for our future leaders, especially from my Philly hometown, and show support for HBCUs. This is just the beginning; trust me when I tell you there are a lot more kids who want to go to college who don’t have the money to make it happen.”

The 18 students receiving college scholarships are high school graduates who attended KIPP public charter schools in eight different communities: the Arkansas Delta, Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, New Orleans, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC. A recent survey of KIPP alumni across the country showed that the KIPP graduates who attend HBCUs reported a stronger sense of belonging, better mental health, and were more likely to have a mentor than those attending non-HBCUs.

“Nothing brings me greater joy than to see the hard work of these 18 KIPP students recognized by Kevin Hart and UNCF through this generous scholarship program,” said John Fisher, chair of the KIPP Foundation Board of Directors. “Michael Lomax has been a longtime KIPP supporter and friend and a tireless champion for young people. We are incredibly grateful to both UNCF and Kevin Hart for their partnership and support to help our students thrive in college and achieve their dreams.”

Hart’s gift to fund this new scholarship program puts him in line with many other renowned celebrities — like Lou Rawls, Ella Fitzgerald, Clifton Davis, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Anthony Anderson, Beyonce, Chris Rock, Usher, Pharrell Williams, Ray Charles, John Lennon, Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis who, realizing the value of a quality education, have supported UNCF over the years. “Giving back to build better futures is the name of the game, and we hope that others like Kevin will understand why educational investments are so important, especially now, and step up to help more deserving students,” said Lomax.

Lomax also added, “Over the last decade, UNCF has been building a relationship with the KIPP public school network, and we are so excited that KIPP’s board of directors and Chairman John Fisher are behind this outstanding new venture. There are more than 1,300 KIPPsters currently enrolled at HBCUs, and together, we are bringing resources and shining a spotlight on these students who are doing all they can to get a college education. This unique partnership will help UNCF continue to bridge the gap from high school success to college achievement and enables UNCF to help more students get to and through college.”

          Why the Democratic Socialists of America Won’t Stop Growing      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

If Salazar makes it to Albany, she will join the ranks of 42 DSA-endorsed candidates who are now or will soon be serving in offices from the Moorhead, Minn., school board to Capitol Hill (that is, if Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wins the general election as handily as she did her primary in New York’s 14th Congressional District). So far this year, local chapters have endorsed at least 110 candidates.

By the time this article goes to press, DSA may well have 50,000 members across 200 local groups in all 50 states—up from 6,000 members in 2015. The surge in freshly minted socialists came in three waves: First, those energized by Bernie Sanders’ primary run; second, those brought in by Donald Trump’s election and the Women’s March; and third, those inspired by 28-year-old DSA member Ocasio-Cortez’s primary victory in May over incumbent—and Democratic heavyweight—Joe Crowley.

So what is DSA, exactly, and what is it doing with this growing army?

DSA’s electoral work has attracted national media attention in the wake of Ocasio-Cortez’s historic win. Yet it’s just one part of a bottom-up approach to politics that sees the ballot box and state power as tools for advancing toward a more radically democratic society. Members—most of them millennials, in small towns and big cities in every corner of the country—are engaged in everything from occupying Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) offices to evangelizing about Medicare for All. Many reporters have tried to divine what DSA believes, be that the group’s policy prescriptions or its ideology. DSA, though—to crib from Karl Marx—isn’t looking merely to interpret the world, but to change it, campaign by campaign, door by door. What’s made DSA’s ascendance remarkable is less its analysis of capitalism than its ability to put people angry about capitalism to work.

IT’S TELLING THAT, UNLIKE MOST SOCIAList groups, DSA was formed out of a merger—not a sectarian split. In 1982, at the dawn of the Reagan era, the Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee (DSOC) and the New America Movement (NAM) combined forces. DSOC had been founded in 1973 by socialist intellectual Michael Harrington and other members of the Socialist Party who had grown disenchanted with political irrelevance. NAM, founded in 1972 by former members of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), was rooted in ’60s counterculture, the New Left and second-wave feminism. (In 1976, members of DSOC and NAM moved to Chicago to found In These Times, and for the next decade the then-newspaper reported diligently on the ins and outs of DSOC, NAM and DSA.)

The 1980s would prove a tough decade for left politics, the 1990s and 2000s even more so. DSA shed members and closed chapters around the country as a few loyalists and a steady trickle of young recruits kept the organization running.

Enter Bernie Sanders’ primary campaign and his stalwart identification as a “democratic socialist,” a surprise boon for an organization with those two words in its name. DSA’s commitment to being a pluralistic, “multi-tendency” organization also meant it was open enough to accommodate thousands of newcomers.

Democratic socialism itself has always been a heterodox term, encompassing everyone from ideological Trotskyists to New Deal Democrats. The surge of new, mostly 20-something members include anarchists, Marxist academics and— most numerously—political neophytes excited about Sanders’ message and frustrated with the Democratic establishment.

DSA isn’t keen to enforce a strict definition of “democratic socialism”—although mainstream media outlets newly hip to DSA are desperately looking for one. On its website, DSA writes:

At the root of our socialism is a profound commitment to democracy, as means and end. As we are unlikely to see an immediate end to capitalism tomorrow, DSA fights for reforms today that will weaken the power of corporations and increase the power of working people ...

Our vision is of a society in which people have a real voice in the choices and relationships that affect the entirety of our lives. We call this vision democratic socialism—a vision of a more free, democratic and humane society.

Members I spoke with took this to mean everything from taking public goods like healthcare off the private market (along the lines of Scandinavian social democracies) to worker-ownership of the means of production. Central Iowa DSA co-chair Caroline Schoonover was among many to say that democratic socialism means “taking power from the few and giving it to the many.” All saw small-d democracy—people having a say in the decisions that affect them—as central, both in politics and workplaces, and in DSA itself.

For this story, I spoke with around two dozen DSA members from chapters around the country. The primary source of their excitement was that DSA chapters seemed to be actively working on something, not just sitting around reading Marx. Like the citizen action group Indivisible, which also exploded after the election, DSA let people shake off a feeling of helplessness about the political climate and roll up their sleeves.

DSA also offers a community. Chapters host regular beach days, parties, fundraisers and social events, like Metro D.C. DSA’s recent “No ICE Cream Social.” If Indivisible was able to connect many alienated, middle-class suburbanites jarred out of their political comfort zone, DSA has provided a home for tens of thousands of downwardly-mobile, debt-ridden millennials grappling with a system that simply isn’t working for them.

Adam Shuck and Arielle Cohen, 32 and 29, joined Pittsburgh DSA in its infancy; Shuck was among the seven people who first met at a bar in 2016 to talk about getting the chapter together. Each was energized by Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign but disillusioned by his presidency. “I thought we were going to see some kind of New Deal,” Shuck says. The frustration led him at first to join the International Socialist Organization before the Sanders campaign brought him to DSA. While a student at SUNY Purchase, Cohen grew disillusioned with the sausage-making and compromise that created the Affordable Care Act, and organized with Occupy Wall Street before moving to Pittsburgh and finding her way to DSA. Now, Shuck and Cohen co-chair the Pittsburgh chapter.

Pittsburgh DSA held its first general meeting in December 2016 with around 100 people. Now it has a dizzying number of working groups: a health justice committee campaigning for Medicare for All; reading groups tackling Marx and Engels; an anti-imperialism committee lobbying for legislation criticizing Israel’s occupation of Palestine; a socialist feminist working group exposing crisis pregnancy centers; an ecosocialist group fighting the privatization of the city’s water and sewer system; a housing rights group pushing for protections for renters; and a number of inward-facing groups handling tasks like recruitment and communications.

The chapter also brought the newly revived DSA one of its early electoral victories, rattling the local Democratic machine. In December 2017, the group threw its weight behind Summer Lee’s campaign to represent House District 34. In the May primary, with the help of DSA and groups like Our Revolution and the Sierra Club, Lee, 30, a recent law school grad, beat Paul Costa, 57, a 19-year incumbent and member of a dynastic Pittsburgh Democratic family.

Lee had experience working on school board races and on a coordinated campaign to elect Katie McGinty governor and Hillary Clinton president in the 2016 general election, and she was impressed with DSA’s electoral work on Mik Pappas’ judicial campaign. Pappas ran on a platform of ending cash bail and working to end mass incarceration, and won in a landslide, with the help of a dedicated grassroots turnout effort staffed in part by DSA members.

“They were running 20 or more canvassing shifts a week,” says Lee. “I had never seen that type of energy around magistrate elections. I realized that ideologically we aligned.” She joined DSA shortly thereafter and sought them out as her first endorsement.

It wasn’t easy. DSA’s candidate endorsement process is a microcosm of its baked-in commitment to direct democracy. For every decision, at every level, there’s deliberate space for members to duke things out, combined with a commitment to ultimately supporting the group decision rather than splitting off into rival factions. The very question of whether to engage in the electoral process—and in particular, to work within the Democratic Party—remains fraught, with many members skeptical of investing limited organizational resources into elections rather than base-building.

New York City DSA hotly debated whether to endorse Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s challenger from the left, Cynthia Nixon, after she declared herself a democratic socialist. Several dozen DSA members signed a “vote no” statement arguing that universal healthcare and rent control will be won not by electing candidates to office but by “building working-class power that holds [them] accountable,” citing the successful teachers’ strikes in Republican states. As this issue went to press, NYC-DSA chapters were voting on the endorsement.

“We have folks who distrust electoral work, and even among those that don’t, there are different ways of thinking of how to approach it,” says DSA National Director Maria Svart, 38, a former SEIU organizer. “Everybody appreciates that electoral success only comes when you have an organized base. Having all these tendencies in conversation means that everybody learns from each other.”

While the endorsement process varies from chapter to chapter, in some cases—including Lee’s—the first step is filling out a lengthy form with quest ions from each of t he chapter’s working groups. Typically, one is whether the candidate identifies as a socialist. Members weigh that alongside specific policy questions (“Do you support universal rent control? Abolishing the police?”) and a range of other concerns: How much of an impact could the chapter have on the race? How will it build the chapter’s capacity and the movement to challenge the capitalist class?

Next comes the interview process. After filling out Pittsburgh DSA’s questionnaire, Lee was interviewed by a roomful of members. The group voted to endorse both Lee and Sara Innamorato, a state representative candidate, and the two supported one another’s campaigns.

Ocasio-Cortez, in New York, jumped through even more hoops. Because her congressional district spans the Bronx and Queens DSA chapters, she had five interviews: with the electoral committees and membership of each branch, and then the citywide convention. “We put her through hell,” jokes Michael Kinnucan, a DSA member now comanaging the state Senate campaign of Julia Salazar (whom the organization endorsed alongside Ocasio-Cortez in a parallel process).

Abdullah Younus, co-chair of NYC-DSA and a member of DSA’s National Electoral Committee, explains that the extensive endorsement process isn’t just a means of vetting candidates, but of building members’ commitment to them. “It makes it a lot easier to have the same folks who write the questions come out and knock for those candidates,” he says. “They’re talking about work they’re invested in.”

SALAZAR, 28, ESTIMATES THAT SOME 800 DSA MEMbers live in and around her district, which has translated into hundreds of volunteers spreading the word about her September primary. Even in her short time with the group (she joined in late 2016), she’s seen a change in how fellow leftists relate to electoral politics. “I think part of it is people seeing the term ‘democratic socialist’ normalized in the electoral realm, through Bernie mostly, at least initially, and so seeing it as an actually viable strategy,” she told me between knocking doors.

Though she’d worked on legislative campaigns as a staff organizer with Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, Salazar only recently began to think about electoral work. “It’s not something I ever thought about before—not just for myself, but in seeing leadership development in community organizing as a path toward seizing state power,” she says. “That sounds like a jump, right? But ultimately that’s the goal.”

Thanks in part to the Sanders campaign and Ocasio-Cortez’s stunning upset, that goal feels more within reach now than it has since the days of the Socialist Party’s Eugene Debs. Big, universal programs like a federal job guarantee or Medicare for All draw overwhelming popular support. And small, local races offer an opportunity for the grassroots to tip the balance.

Establishment candidates in Democratic-controlled cities effectively depend on low turnout. Their political consultants tend to rely more on advertising and glossy mailers, and less on actually talking to people—particularly people who don’t usually vote. Mobilizing even a few thousand new voters in that context, then, is a fairly straightforward formula for victory. When DSA member Lee Carter won a seat in Virginia’s House of Delegates in November 2017, he beat his Republican opponent by 9 points—a margin of 1,850 votes.

“Our party structure protects incumbency, and relies on an ignorant electorate,” Summer Lee says, noting how much time her campaign spent educating voters about the election itself. “If everybody were voting, we’d have a completely different system.”

Depending on the city, DSA can offer a large, self-organized volunteer base to candidates who navigate its endorsement process. Pittsburgh DSA estimates that its volunteers knocked on some 70,000 doors through the course of Lee’s campaign. Turnout in Lee’s district was 14 percent higher than in others around Allegheny County and 54 percent higher than in the last midterm election.

Still, it’d be nearly impossible for DSA-endorsed candidates for higher offices to make do with only DSA’s support, and they often work alongside other organizations like Justice Democrats, Our Revolution and the Working Families Party—especially for bigger races. Justice Democrats and Brand New Congress, for example, convinced OcasioCortez to run and helped staff her campaign, and she gained the backing of Black Lives Matter-Bronx and People for Bernie Sanders, among others. Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign reached 120,000 doors overall.

By being an organization that does much more than campaign for candidates, DSA hopes to upend the notoriously transactional, short-term nature of electoral work, enabling its members and elected officials to build relationships with and commitments to their communities that extend beyond election day. DSA is still figuring out how to build independent political organizations to hold the politicians it helps elect accountable. Thus far they’ve relied on their close ties with dyed-in-the-wool DSA members-turned-candidates like Lee Carter. DSA, Carter says, has “been the core of my support since I’ve been in the legislature. I still go to meetings whenever I can, and they help me get in contact with other groups.”

DSA member, Hawai’i state representative and now U.S. House candidate Kaniela Ing says he hopes that DSA remains “part of an independent Left, and does not get too caught up in electoral and legislative politics”—and that it holds politicians to account, himself included.

“I’m a movement candidate,” Ing says. “Hopefully my role is to help push whatever movements are building over the finish line. Elected officials really like to take too much credit for bills they pass that are really the result of the public waking up and forcing politicians to act.” He says he hopes to have regular check-ins with DSA should he make it to Washington.

ELECTORAL WORK ALSO FEEDS INTO DSA’S OTHER campaigns. Pittsburgh DSA’s membership swelled in the wake of Lee and Innamorato’s wins. “[Email] list building, data tracking, how to talk to people at the doors— that all helps build the muscle that can also help with canvassing for housing justice,” Shuck says.

“When we canvass an area, we’re often knocking a door many times, whether for a candidate, for Medicare for All or for housing justice,” Cohen adds. “At this point, people know us when we come to the door, and they know what DSA is.”

NYC-DSA’s Abdullah Younus sees electoral work as a training ground. He says that canvassers for the New York Health Act, legislation to create a statewide single-payer system, “got skilled on this kind of work by going through the electoral working group.”

For all the recent attention to DSA’s upstart electoral success, it’s only one part of the group’s work nationwide. Many chapters don’t engage at all with elections, or are just starting to think about whether they would like to run candidates. Michael I. Esealuka, co-chair of New Orleans DSA, says, “It would be difficult for us as a small chapter to develop the type of accountability mechanisms we need to hold people [we elect] accountable to our socialist vision.”

Prior to the victories of Carter, Lee and then OcasioCortez, DSA was perhaps best known for agitating to push Medicare for All into the national spotlight—a campaign adopted by delegates from around the country at DSA’s biennial convention in August 2017 as one of three national political priorities, alongside building electoral power and stronger and more militant unions. Forty-five chapters across 20 states held a weekend of action for Medicare for All in April, tabling at farmers’ markets, hosting public events and, as always, canvassing. On the labor front, DSA chapters in West Virginia, Kentucky and Oklahoma raised money for strike funds to support the militant teacher walkouts this spring, and the national DSA sent an email encouraging members around the country to contribute what they could.

Many individual chapters have their own priorities, reflecting local concerns and political climates. Providence DSA, for example, is campaigning for more democratic control over investor-owned electric utilities. New Orleans DSA has focused on base-building work that includes running clinics to help people deal with medical debt, coordinating with the AFL-CIO in developing young rank-and-file labor leaders, and mending broken brake lights, an excuse used by police in the traffic stops that can be “especially perilous and life-disrupting to undocumented immigrants and PoC [people of color],” as the chapter explains on Facebook.

Because there are big DSA chapters in cities with expensive housing stock—Los Angeles, Chicago and the Bay Area, for instance—the fight for affordable housing has emerged as a major priority. “Housing justice is probably the biggest issue in Los Angeles; the homelessness crisis is at a tipping point,” says Arielle Sallai, a member of DSA Los Angeles’ steering committee. DSA-LA and other California chapters are canvassing to pass Proposition 10, an initiative on the ballot in November that would loosen a statewide limit on rent control. Similarly, Chicago DSA is supporting a campaign to overturn Illinois’ rent control ban, with the back ing of A lder man and DSA member Carlos Ramirez-Rosa.

On many issues, including housing and homelessness, DSA chapters are well aware that their members often don’t look like the populations most directly affected. Although DSA does not have up-to-date member demographics, it has historically leaned white and male.

Coalition-building is one way to correct for this. “Housing work is a great chance to be part of a radical coalition and talk to as many individuals as possible,” Sallai says. DSA-LA has teamed up with local groups like the LA Tenants Union that have been working for years against gentrification.

Esealuka, a black woman, is frank about the fact that New Orleans DSA is a majority white organization in a majority black city. “It’s a problem, obviously, but it’s nothing that can’t be overcome,” she says. “It’s not like we have to write DSA off because it’s majority white and majority male. … Because we have 45,000 members [nationwide], we have so much potential to do good in this country. It’s just a matter of being more intentional about embedding ourselves into things that matter to working-class people.”

Noting the high proportion of women taking on leadership roles in her chapter, Esealuka suggests that all chapters equip members with the organizing skills to develop the leadership of women and people of color. Internally, many chapters have also created specific spaces, such as the national Afrosocialist Caucus or Socialist Feminist working groups, for DSA members who aren’t white or male to feel welcome and build community.

THOUGH SEN. TAMMY DUCKWORTH (D-ILL.) INFAmously said after Ocasio-Cortez’s primary win that socialist politics can’t work in the Midwest, they’ve certainly found an audience in the heartland. Iowa, for instance, has the highest number of DSA chapters per capita of any state. Members in chapters outside of big blue coastal cities may talk about socialism a little differently than their counterparts and run different campaigns, but they agree on the basics of what they’re fighting for. Chapters in blue cities like Denver are quick to say they don’t automatically find a warm reception just because they’re talking to Democrats, and chapters in red or purple states note they don’t necessarily face open hostility. For the past two years, Central Iowa DSA has marched in the state fair parade through Des Moines, flanked by Trump floats and those from local businesses. “You get thumbs up about Medicare for All and everybody needing healthcare,” says cochair Joe Ellerbroek. “You might get a middle finger at an ICE protest every once in a while.”

After decades of socialism being nonexistent in mainstream political debates, however, most people simply are not familiar with the term itself. “I didn’t know I was a democratic socialist when I decided to run, and I didn’t know that this group existed,” says Summer Lee. “I just knew that these policies are policies that we need. When you go to black communities, we really are more inclined to socialism. We don’t always have that language in our communities, but we know that these policies are what’s needed for our communities.”

Asked how they talk about democratic socialism with voters, all seven DSA-endorsed candidates I interviewed offered some variation on the same answer: “I don’t lead with that.”

Ocasio-Cortez says she opts instead to “show people what we’re fighting for. What I talk about is Medicare for All, tuition-free public college and housing as a human right. In my interpretation of what democratic socialism is, it is the fight for a basic level of dignity that our society refuses to violate.”

Ing says, “Usually, when I talk about money in politics or the government not representing us, that transcends any left-right values. Most people see the world from bottom versus top: Are you with us, or them?”

DSA candidates running for office and DSA members knocking doors, then, articulate socialism as a common sense set of practices and beliefs: swearing off corporate donations, supporting big, universal programs that promise to redistribute society’s resources more equitably, and returning decisions to the hands of the people most directly affected. As DSA makes inroads selling the public on the virtues of democratic socialism and infiltrating the halls of power, it will also figure out what to do once it gets there.

For the moment, DSA members and candidates are making the road to a 21st-century American socialism by walking it—and knocking on a few hundred thousand doors along the way.

The party's over. America has yawned theatrically, made a show of looking at our watch, gathered up the empty glasses and snack bowls, put them into the sink to soak, and started talking very pointedly about how early we have to get up tomorrow to put in a full day's work. Hint, hint.

But Barack Obama, who has been partying in our house for 8 years, isn't picking up on our subtle message that he should just get the hell out already. Which is why he went to Chicago yesterday to deliver his long-awaited farewell address. And we're talking very long-awaited; personally, we've been awaiting for this skeevy socialist race-baiter to say farewell ever since his inauguration.

Not that we watched his actual speech, of course.  Everything about him - his haughtily uplifted chin, sneering arrogance, monomaniacal self-absorption, and lecturing tone of voice - sickens us and raises our blood pressure to dangerous levels. And we're not about to risk an aneurysm with only days to go.

But according to pre-speech comments from Valerie "I heart Iran" Jarrett, "It's not a victory lap speech. His intention is to motivate people to want to get involved and fight for their democracy."

Coming from someone else, we'd take that as metaphor - but we're pretty sure that Valerie and Barry mean real fighting of the type they've encouraged in the past, with rioting, looting, molotov cocktails, and shrieking lunatics attacking police vehicles.

According to Josh Earnest (which is a phrase that Hope n' Change is really looking forward to never writing again), the crux of Barry's speech will be on "what the president believes is necessary for us to confront the challenges that lie ahead." 

Great. So Obama's advice is going to be "fighting" and "confrontation" to hamper the efforts of the newly-elected President as he tries to restore prosperity and genuine hope to America in the aftermath of a two-term disaster.

But what else would we expect from a man whose every action has been intended to leave the country in worse shape than he found it? A goal which, sadly, is likely to stand as his one actual accomplishment.

Boo Radley isn't going to like them, either.
Barack Obama has announced that he will be making a farewell address to the citizens of Chicago next week, in part to "celebrate the way you've changed this country." We can't think of a better location, considering some of those "changes" include 762 murders in 2016, and the recent abduction and torture (with live Facebook streaming) of a mentally challenged white man by four black thugs, who used their time in the online spotlight laughing and spouting obscenities directed at Donald Trump and white people.

When white lunatic Dylann Roof murdered nine black members of a South Carolina church, Barack Obama made clear his belief that nobody acts alone (even if they think they do), and larger sociological connections - and corrections - must be made.


While that point can and should be debated (Obama himself denies his own "logic" every time a Muslim carries out an act of terror), it can't be debated that, even worse than a lone psychopath, there is something sicker and more inherently dangerous about a group of hate-filled people who joyfully torture another human and broadcast it to their friends. That's symptomatic of a culture of sociopathy, malignant and metastasizing.

While it's easy and appropriate to lay some of the blame on media celebration of thugs, ho's, and the gangster life, we believe the larger share of guilt belongs to generations of Democrat policy makers - Obama most decidedly included - who have destroyed black families, the educational system, and the nation's inner cities in order to provide an unending source of enslaved voters who must rely on government entitlements for survival.

Add to this the Obama administration's 8 year history of stoking racial fires, showing antagonism towards police, and their active encouragement of rioting in black communities as an appropriate and "understandable" response to acts of imagined racism.

All of this has created a sickness in the soul of too many black Americans that is as representative of Obama's "legacy" as anything could possibly be. If the man had an ounce of honesty or integrity, he wouldn't be traveling to Chicago to boast of his "accomplishments" - he'd be going there to apologize.

BONUS: A WORD ABOUT THE "RUSSIAN HACKING" INTELLIGENCE HEARINGS

Bullshit.

HOPE AND CHANGING...

obama, obama jokes, political, humor, cartoon, conservative, hope n' change, hope and change, stilton jarlsberg, retiring

We'll be talking more about this in the near future, but just to give everyone time to adjust to the idea (including ourselves), we're officially announcing that Hope n' Change Cartoons will be turning out the lights here on or slightly after the day Obama leaves office.

Hope n' Change has existed with a specific purpose in mind: to comment on the many disasters associated with the Obama administration and the culture of liberalism, and to address those issues with enough humor to boost morale for those on the Right who've been fighting back. That job has been completed and we've got the empty scotch bottles to prove it.

Mind you, we don't expect the world of politics to get any less ugly and ridiculous now - far from it. These are going to be tumultuous times and no political satirist is going to run out of raw material while Donald Trump is in office and Obama is heckling from the front row.

But we're looking forward to finding new projects to work on, both personal and professional. A lot has been "back burnered" in the past 8 years, and we're not getting any younger (although oddly, we are getting more distinguished looking). We plan to do more things which are creative, fun and funny - and don't come with rigid (albeit self-assigned) deadlines throughout the week.

A few additional points:

• We intend to keep up an easy-to-find public profile.

• This site will remain intact and we'll do whatever is necessary to keep it visible. There's a lot of history here!

• Our Hope n' Change Facebook page will continue, although whether new cartoons get posted over there will be purely a matter of whether or not our graphics Tourette's syndrome kicks in.

Johnny Optimism will continue as usual. Sick kids and life's unfairness never get old!

• If you're on our mailing list, we're going to maintain the database so when we create another blog, write a book, or just want to stage a huge reunion party at some centrally located bar, we'll be able to reach you. If you're NOT on the mailing list, then add your information here before the end of the month.  It's free, there's no spam, and future historians will list you among the pantheon of heroes.

There's a lot more that needs to be said, but we'll save that for another day. For now, just know how sincerely appreciated you are - and let's continue business as usual while enjoying the countdown to Barack Obama's final day in office!

<i>one other hospital owned by a religious not for profit that ran it as their own fiefdom.</i> This is what happened to the hospital I used to practice in. My partner and I worked very hard to make it the best hospital in Orange County and came close to doing so. When the trauma survey team came to town, they were amazed at how well run it was. <a href="https://chicagoboyz.net/archives/13160.html"> I told the story here. </a> At the time it was owned by a group of doctors, most of whom did not practice there. Some we would not have allowed to do so. Eventually, it was sold to an order of nuns who have wrecked it as far as I am concerned. They hired a CEO from PepsiCola with no healthcare experience. He made his brother-in-law, who is a chiropractor, the head of the Surgery Department. They bought up all the medical practices and fired the surgical group that had run the Trauma Center for 30 years. My wife has emphysema and she was admitted several times for pneumonia.

I suspect that the FAA was another agency that, along with the FBI/DOJ, IRS, VA, etc were corrupted to assist in the political aims of the "Chicago Mafia" in global trade. Now the hairy apparent did not assume the throne and some government employees may be feeling "vulnerable" if something unpleasant and dramatic happens to an approved aircraft type. There are supposedly many thousands of sealed federal indictments all over the country. Who knows what this may represent? Lithium batteries are powerful, useful, and dangerous. When they fail, they fail with disasterous results unless containment of that sort of failure is built into the design. I do not know if that level of containment is possible, therefore approving such batteries, battery storage and the battery charging mechanism is quite risky. I would not want my name on the aircraft design approval if an aircraft with several hundred passengers became a flaming streak in the sky. The agency "reputation" would be the least of my worries.

          Comment on Republican Congressman Who Backed Trump Indicted On Securities Fraud Charges by Tyrell      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I am certainly opposed to white collar crime. It seems the only time anything is done about it is when it involves some celebrity, rich person, or politicians. I know an older couple who recently were the victims of a scam. The police brushed it off. The bank did not seem to care (they were lax and money was lost). The average working people are hung out to dry when it comes to white collar crime hitting them. These federal judges and investigators need to help them out instead of just some rich people. Look at the recent carnage in Chicago: at least fifty shot and ten killed in one weekend from gang violence. People there say it is worse than when Al Capone was in town. Director Mueller should do some real crime fighting - get his team together and head up there to hit the streets and round up the gangs, hoodlums, and other criminals. These Federal prosecutors and judges need to get out there too. Give the people their neighborhoods back.

Bill Hybels scandal deepens as entire leadership team at Willow Creek church resigns.

Bill Hybels may be gone from the Willow Creek, but the scandal the megachurch founder left in his wake is far from over.

This week, the entire leadership board of the Chicago-area church blasted the church’s investigation of sexual harassment claims against Hybels and resigned. Those resigning were seen as successors to Hybels, including co-pastor Heather Larson, Vox reported.

On Wednesday, the leadership team released a statement saying that, “Willow needs and deserves a fresh start, and the entire board will step down to create room for a new board.”

Just days before, Larson’s fellow co-pastor Steve Carter had already announced his resignation. Though Hybels himself resigned months ago amid allegations of incidents of sexual harassment stretching back two decades, new details have come to light including a Sunday New York Times report that detailed additional allegations against the megachurch founder.

ADESA Des Moines hosted a Ford Driving Skills for Life (Ford DSFL) training program that gave young adults the opportunity to learn advanced driving skills in a controlled environment. In four educational and engaging sessions held over two days, hundreds of teens learned four critical driving skills—hazard recognition, vehicle handling, speed management and space management. Children of ADESA Des Moines employees and customers were also part of a session. In one course, instructors taught the drivers techniques for regaining control of a sliding car, as if on snow or ice. Teens also got to experience distracted and impaired driving simulators, to help them realize the dangers of being on the road while unfocused or under the influence. ADESA Des Moines first served as a host for the Ford DSFL in 2015. This year, the auction was the last of four stops on a summer tour that also included Louisville, Cleveland and Chicago. The Ford DSFL was established in 2003 by Ford Motor Company Fund, the Governors Highway Safety Association and a panel of safety experts to teach newly licensed teens the necessary skills for safe driving, beyond what they learn in standard driver education programs.

          Magic Leap llega al fin al mercado con su visor de AR      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Magic Leap jugó con el hype de ser la empresa más "secreta" a voces y que tenía un supuesto visor de AR que iba a partirle la cabeza al mercado, pero el humo en algún momento o se disipa o se transforma en algo sólido y tangible. Esta vez por suerte se dio lo segundo y a un precio de, ejem, USD 2,295 el Magic Leap One es una realidad.

El producto no es para uso masivo, el precio lo dice todo, y para que tenga una forma y tamaño más parecido a los conceptos de ciencia ficción no podemos esperarlo en la primera versión, aun así Magic Leap no es un salto mágico (pun) según los primeros reviews aunque sí es un producto mejor acabado que otros que vieron la luz tiempo atrás.

Magic Leap tampoco es que lo esté vendiendo en cantidades, no sólo será limitado en disponibilidad sino en locación, sólo quienes vivan en Chicago, LA, Miami, New York City, en la bahía de San Francisco y Seattle, todas areas de developers, podrán tener acceso a uno (por el momento).

Lo que tienen estos visores de realidad aumentada, o como dice el fabricante: realidad mezclada, es que ni los gráficos son gran cosa ni las aplicaciones que han creado nos muestran el verdadero potencial de la plataforma. Hoy tenemos SoCs bien potentes para este tipo de dispositivos pero todavía no lo suficiente para que se note un quiebre por sobre lo que puede ofrecer un GPU serio en una PC o una granja de servidores. La mayor ventaja de AR, como se ha visto en el Hololens de Microsoft, es la interacción con el ambiente real que los visores de VR no tienen.

          The Sound Of Silence: Female Composers At The Symphony      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Tom Huizenga

The Women's March and #MeToo movement have helped raise the volume for women's voices across the country. But one place where women still struggle to be heard is in America's symphony halls. Take a look at which composers the top U.S. orchestras are performing in the upcoming season, and you will find some surprising disparities.

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra will be presenting some 54 composers throughout its 2018-19 season. Want to guess how many of those composers are women? The number is zero. Same goes for the Philadelphia Orchestra.

"Obviously zero is a very damning number," says Jeremy Rothman, vice president of artistic planning for the Philadelphia Orchestra. "In this one year, we did have that particular oversight, which we are rectifying."

To be fair, Philadelphia has programmed women composers in the past (so has Chicago), including works by Jennifer Higdon. She's lucky; her music gets played a lot. This year she has three concertos premiering, including her Concerto for Low Brass, which was heard in Philadelphia in February. Higdon is a 55-year-old Pulitzer and Grammy winner and a Philadelphia resident whose music is accessible to both orchestras and audiences.

Higdon's most popular work is blue cathedral and it's on tap next season for the Cleveland Orchestra. But out of 41 composers the symphony will present, Higdon's is the only one by a woman.

Success has given Higdon some perspective. While orchestras play her music, she says they seem deaf to hundreds of other women composers. "The way of thinking in orchestras is so built on an old tradition," she says. "They just assume that there are certain pieces they need to program, certain composers that have been done time and time again, and they just don't think about programming women."

And when they do program women, it tends to be the ones who are already successful, like Higdon, or Julia Wolfe, who won a Pulitzer in 2015 for her oratorio Anthracite Fields. The New York Philharmonic will play the world premiere of a new work by Wolfe in January. But, out of 49 composers, Wolfe is joined by only one other woman in the upcoming season. It's a ratio that doesn't sit well with Higdon.

"Heck, you know what? Half of humanity is made up of women," she says. "So why is it we only see one to two percent of the programming of women?"

One answer to Higdon's question comes from Jesse Rosen, president and CEO of the League of American Orchestras. "If you go back in time, this was not a viable career for a woman to become a composer," Rosen explains. "And so, you have a canon that, by definition, does not have a lot of women composers in it."

And so, you end up with tons of Mozart and Beethoven.

Another problem, Rosen adds, is that orchestras have to please a lot of constituents: audiences, board members, marketing departments and donors. Then there are the conductors and artistic directors — most of them men. They're the ones who choose the music. But the bottom line for orchestras is money.

"They rely, to a significant degree, on their box office and their subscribers. And you've got very thin financial margins you're trying to manage. So I think it's part of life in the arts," Rosen says.

The real question for composers, though, is how to break into the exclusive group whose music gets performed? Rothman says this question is equally relevant for young composers, composers of color and women.

"We have to be giving composers the right tools to compose successful works --being able to workshop their pieces," Rothman notes. "Simply commissioning pieces and performing them once is not going to be the solution."

And for orchestras to simply check off the female composer box once or twice a year isn't going to cut it either, according to Rosen. "If you don't have a consciousness that says, 'We value diversity in all its manifestations,' the default is going to be you're going to end up with a lot more white men," Rosen says.

Among the top American orchestras programming more than just one or two women next season are the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. But they still come up short.

Some might caution that crunching numbers for a single season doesn't provide a large enough picture. But Higdon knows the numbers have been lousy for years. It's up to us ticket holders, she says, to ask for something better.

"If you want to hear something by a woman, say something," Higdon insists. "I think the scene has to change. I say give it a try. There's a lot of fantastic music out there, why miss out on it?"

          It's Official: Pro-Trump News Broadcaster's Mega Merger is Dead      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Once considered a foregone conclusion, the merger of Sinclair Broadcast Group with Tribune Media is officially off.

In a victory for free and independent journalism, Tribune Media said on Thursday that it is pulling out of its $3.9 billion merger with Sinclair Broadcast Group, putting the final nail in the coffin of a deal that had seemed inevitable when it was first announced in May of last year.

According to Axios, Tribune is also filing a lawsuit against Sinclair, alleging breach of contract.

Sinclair, a Maryland-based company which is the largest owner of local news stations in the U.S., is notorious for its right-wing, pro-Trump slant, and its unusual system of distributing slanted "must-run" content to its local stations to work into their broadcasts.

Reporters at stations owned by Sinclair — which include nearly 200 local affiliate news channels across the country branded as ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, and more — have been forced to run segments that attack Democratic politicians, discredit the FBI's investigation of Russia, call other media outlets "false news", and even run a regular commentary show by a former Trump adviser.

Leaving no doubt in anyone's mind whose tank they are in, Trump himself has endorsed Sinclair, calling it "far superior to CNN and even more Fake NBC."

Had the merger with Tribune Media been approved, Sinclair would have completely dominated the local news market. By one estimate, the combined company would have owned stations in nearly 3 out of 4 U.S. households, controlling an enormous amount of the content Americans see on local stations.

Approval of the merger was widely considered inevitable because Trump's FCC chairman, Ajit Pai, is notoriously anti-regulation and pro-merger, and had rolled back ownership rules for broadcast media companies last year in a manner that seemingly paved the way for the deal.

In a surprise move in July, however, Pai said he had "serious concerns" and suggested Sinclair was trying to conceal anticompetitive practices in its proposed purchase and divestiture of certain stations. The FCC moved to refer parts of the deal for review by an administrative law judge, effectively leaving it on life support.

With the Tribune merger dead for good, Sinclair will look for other ways to acquire new stations. But for now, a potentially catastrophic change to media markets has been scuttled. And those who value the free press can breathe a little more easily.

I am quite sure the office never defended anyone against criminal charges.

          A Life Cut Short - R.F. Minner      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A stroll through the Hurricane Cemetery in Crittenden County, Kentucky will show the names of many families who lived and died in the surrounding area. Prominent among those names is Minner. That isn't unusual, though, as the land for the nearby Hurricane Methodist Church was obtained  from Richard Minner, an early area settler, in 1843.[1]  In 1875, Robert H. Haynes gave land for the cemetery,[2] but I suspect the Minner family had already established a burying ground either on or adjoining the Haynes land.  One of the early burials here was for Richard F. Minner, who served in the Union Army during the Civil War.




R.F. Minner
born May 20, 1820
died Feb. 12, 1867

Minner married Catherine  Stalions 30 May 1839 Livingston County, Kentucky. [3] After her death, he married Mrs. Mary C. Kilpatrick 22 December 1858 Crittenden County.[4]

On October 1863 at the age of 43, Richard F. Minner was mustered into Co. E, 48th KY Infantry as a captain at Princeton for one year's service.  The 48th KY Infantry was  composed mainly of men from the western Kentucky counties of Trigg, Lyon, Livingston, Crittenden, Union, Christian, Caldwell, Muhlenburg, Breckenridge and Grayson. [5] On the 26th of February 1864, Minner wrote to the Headquarters of the U.S. Forces requesting 15 days leave to go to Crittenden County about the 10th of March next to attend to business of his father's estate. [6] His father, Daniel Minner,  had recently died.[7] Richard F. Minner was mustered out of service 15 December 1864.

After the war, Minner returned to his life as a farmer in Crittenden County, but his life would end just a few years later. The following newspaper death notice gives the details of his death. "Captain R.F. Minner, late of the army, was caught in a mill wheel in Crittenden county, a few days ago, his arm broken in several places, and his ribs severed from the back bone. He lingered until Monday night last, and died in great agony. The accident occurred at Mr. Wilson's mill."[8]

Minner was laid to rest in Hurricane Cemetery near the graves of his parents, his first wife and several of his infant children.

Black thespians tolerated the Academy Awards' annual homage to White Supremacy entertainment with pale mitts clutching almost all the hardware and Patricia Arquette reminding us how White Women have labored for "people of color." Shameless White cliques pretended to revere Minister Malcolm X on the anniversary of his assassination. However, no one cited his analysis of White sexual perversion and White Women rapists who sexually exploited black males. Rodney Reed, a black death row inmate of Texas, asserts that his consensual and tragic sexual arrangement with a White Woman resulted in his wrongful rape conviction and possible execution. The windy city of Chicago had much to say about the mayoral election and an injured black athlete; there was comparative lockjaw about allegations of systemic torture and constitutional violations by the Chicago Police Department. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://tiny.cc/ledjb CALL IN NUMBER: 760.569.7676 CODE 564943# SKYPE: FREECONFERENCECALLHD.7676 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

No one was criminally charged for this catastrophe, and this week it was announced that no one would be charged for the police killing of Tony Robinson in Wisconsin. Abrupt disciplinary action was taken against New Jersey public school teacher Marilyn Zuniga; she was terminated for allowing her 3rd grade students to write "get well" cards to journalist and convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. In another prison news, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was sentenced to the death penalty; perhaps this impacted some of our listeners thoughts on whether or not the convicted bomber is accepted as White. And Chicago had a bit of it all: An announcement of millions in reparations for black victims of Chicago Police Terrorism.

Conintelpro proves that laws and permission don't prohibit White surveillance. Speaking of Pres. Obama, a Pennsylvania newspaper expressed shame for publishing an editorial calling for the execution of the non-white commander in chief. Speaking of killing black people, the Chicago Police Department added to its sterling reputation by firing a White officer who posed for a photo with a hunting rifle and a black male wearing deer antlers. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://tiny.cc/ledjb CALL IN NUMBER: 760.569.7676 CODE 564943# SKYPE: FREECONFERENCECALLHD.7676 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

Social engineering and "de-genderization" were at maximum highs as Vanity Fair transformed Bruce Jenner to Kaitlyn. Thankfully, we were cautioned against equating "her" to Rosa Parks. While everyone kept up with the Kardashian posse, almost no one notice the White Terrorism against Kristina Fox and her black brother. These Chicagoans were stabbed, bludgeoned and called niggers by White brutes. Rap music may be to blame. White Mississippians would not be outdone. Senatobia High School superintendent and Suspected Race Soldier Jay Foster had arrest warrants issued for four black people who dared to applaud a graduating family member. Whether rite of passage or catastrophe, Whites salivate at the opportunity to molest black people. It was reported that out of a half billion dollars in aid money for Haitian earthquake survivors, only six houses were constructed. Whites at the Red Cross are accused of demonstrating a "pattern of careless mistakes, dishonesty." And Jasmine Catchings is the outstanding journalist of the week. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://tiny.cc/ledjb CALL IN NUMBER: 760.569.7676 CODE 564943# SKYPE: FREECONFERENCECALLHD.7676 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

Beryl Satter visits The Context of White Supremacy. Dr. Satter is a professor of history at Rutgers University in New Jersey, and her work was rewarded with a 2015 Guggenheim Grant. We'll examine her 2009 publication: Family Properties: Race, Real Estate and the Exploitation of Black Urban America. Ta-Nehisi Coates referenced this text in his prominently discussed analysis of why black people should be granted immense compensation for the terrorism Whites have subjected us to. Satter provides a comprehensive, blistering indictment of White real estate practices which restricted Chicago's black housing to horrendous areas with poor services and astronomical insurance rates. Black people were financially raped for the privilege of living in squalor; the Federal Housing Administration refused to issue home loans for black people. So White predators sold inferior housing to black people... after marking up the price as much as 100%. We'll see if Dr. Satter confirms N.D.B. Connolly's and Andrew Kahrl's assessment that Whites have become increasingly efficient as confiscating black property.

The legions of activists who've joined "Black Lives Matter" have increasingly called on presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton to acknowledge Racism. The 50 year anniversary of the Watts unrest provided another chance for Whites to maintain that there has been immense progress in "race relations." It's been a decade since Hurricane Katrina, and The Chicago Tribune demonstrated that contempt for black life remains high; staff writer and Racist Suspect Kristen McQueary published an op-ed piece on her wish that Chicago have its own disaster to wash away Illinois' niggers. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://tiny.cc/ledjb CALL IN NUMBER: 760.569.7676 CODE 564943# SKYPE: FREECONFERENCECALLHD.7676 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes the return of Pam. A co-author at Trojan Horse Press, Pam manages the Racism Is WS website and is the main contributor for a collection of counter-racist texts, including Black Love Is A Revolutionary Act and The Beauty Con Game. We'll review how a better understanding of Racism altered her spending habits and economic practices. Racists routinely encourage non-white people to make shoddy financial decisions - when they aren't directly plundering and exploiting black people. We'll also inspect the ongoing attack on Chicago Public Schools and Minister Farrakhan's "Justice Or Else" march in Washington, D.C. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://tiny.cc/ledjb CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

Pam (http://RacismWS.com/) returns to The Context of White Supremacy. She manages the Racism Is White Supremacy blog and established Trojan Horse Press. She's co-authored a range of constructive counter-racist literature to help black people grasp the total war Whites are conducting against us: The Beauty Con Game, The Interracial Con Game, Black Love Is A Revolutionary Act. Since Pam is a Chicago, Illinois native, we thought she could boost our comprehension of the legacy strategic terrorism against black Chicagoans. The recent attention on the police slayings of Rekia Boyd and Laquan McDonald, the Homan Square torture facility and Spike Lee's documentary Chiraq, often fail to put these incidents within a historical context of 100 years of White Terror Domination in the Windy City. We'll review the work of Isabel Wilkerson, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Beryl Satter, Leanita McClain and President Barack Obama. After being assaulted with rocks and bricks while peacefully protesting in 1966, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. confessed, "I have been in many demonstrations all across the South, but I can say that I have never seen even in Mississippi and Alabama mobs as hostile and as hate filled as I've seen here in Chicago." #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://tiny.cc/ledjb CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE: 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

Compensatory Call InThe Context of White Supremacy hosts the weekly Compensatory Call-In. We encourage non-white listeners to dial in with their codified concepts, new terms, observations, research findings, workplace problems or triumphs, and/or suggestions on how best to Replace White Supremacy With Justice ASAP. We'll use these sessions to hone our use of words as tools to reveal truth, neutralize White people. We'll examine news reports from the past seven days and - hopefully - promote a constructive dialog. #ANTIBLACKNESS The most recent mass shooting - this time in San Bernadino, California - gave Whites another moment to masquerade as pained about gun violence. The shooting minimized attention on gun-toting Race Soldier Jason Van Dyke - who was released from a Chicago jail after expeditiously posting $150,000 bond. Van Dyke is charged with first degree murder for the 2014 shooting of Laquan McDonald. While many comtested the definition of terrorism and what type of violence should be branded as such, this week marked the 60th anniversary of Rosa Parks' counter-terrorist offensive on a Montgomery, Alabama bus. Unfortunately, Parks' Alabama has remained staunchly devoted to terrorizing black citizens, evidenced by the Alabama Justice Project's charge that enforcement officials and prosecutors conspired to plant drugs on and incarcerate innocent black citizens for decades. And echoing much of Rosa Parks' work against the sexual violation of black females, the Daniel Holtzclaw trial wrapped it's 5th week; Holtzclaw is facing 36 counts of sexual tyranny against 13 black females. Closing arguments will be delivered Monday, December 7th. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://tiny.cc/ledjb CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

We'll use these sessions to hone our use of words as tools to reveal truth, neutralize White people. We'll examine news reports from the past seven days and - hopefully - promote a constructive dialog. #ANTIBLACKNESS It's probably expecting too much to have consecutive weeks of enforcement officers being convicted of mauling black people. A week after Daniel Holtzclaw was found guilty in Oklahoma, the first of six trials against the Baltimore, Maryland officers accused of killing Freddie Gray concluded in a mistrial. There's no indication on when - or if - a re-trial will be scheduled or how this will influence the five remaining trials. In Chicago, Illinois Suspected Race Soldier Jason Van Dyke was indicted for the murder of 17-year-old Laquan MacDonald; he'll be arraigned later this month. Whites are offering heaps of rhetoric about improving the criminal justice system as a result of these cases; in New York they agreed to reform the practice of solitary confinement - they did not commit to eliminating this custom. Beyond their highfalutin words, pathological White patterns and practices remain. A Northern California prison was indicted for an "entrenched culture" of Racism and violence that one victim described as having a "KKK... feeling". On a good note, Serena Williams was branded the 2015 Sportsperson of the Year by Sports Illustrated. Many White Supremacists were disgusted that the black tennis titan won the award over a horse. More tellingly, Sports Illustrated connected the achievement to Williams' decision to forgive and forget by returning to Indian Wells for the first time since a 2001 display of tackiness and Racism from thousands of White spectators. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

The alleged modern day product of King's "dream," President Barack Obama, delivered his last State of the Union Address. This time, no one interrupted to brand him a liar. The president's former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has dismissed calls to resign as mounting evidence suggests he may have lied about his knowledge of the police killing of a black teen. Chicago officials liberated yet another snuff flick of a black male being slaughtered by the Windy City's finest.

Asadah Kirkland visits The Context of White Supremacy. A black mother with more than twenty years experience working with children, Ms. Kirkland's unconventional academic settings allowed for the freedom to teach her own curricula and deliver her own messages that nourished black students. We'll discuss her 2009 publication, Beating Black Kids. She investigates why large numbers of black people believe in and resort to physically hitting black children as a normative form of discipline. She connects this practice to our traumatic experience with White Supremacy and offers an abundance of alternative concepts and child-rearing strategies to rear healthy, creative, well-behaved black children. She was called on to share her views on the recent controversy surrounding football player Adrian Peterson whipping his young son. Ms. Kirkland was highly recommended by Ms. Lorne Cress Love - Dr. Frances Cress Welsing's sister. Since Mr. Kirkland is a Chicago, Illinois native, we'll see if she caught Spike Lee's latest release, Chi-Raq. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE: 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the debut study session on Leanita McClain's posthumously published A Foot In Each World. McClain was a superb journalist who had essays published in the Chicago Tribune and The Washington Post. Her columns examined Racism and the terrorism waged against black people in all areas of people activity. She committed suicide in May of 1984 at the age of 32. Her suicide note reveals the degree to which White Supremacy eviscerated her mental health. She wrote: "Do not try to pull my back into this world. I will never live long enough to see my people free anyway." A Foot In Each World is a collection of her various essays that was edited by her former husband Clarence Page. McClain often focused on the city of Chicago, Illinois. Her writings suggest that she endured a great deal of angst about being placed in a better position that most black people. We'll note the consistency of this conflict and compare this to McClain's commentary on the people who decide which black people will be in the so called middle class...

She had content published in the Chicago Tribune and The Washington Post. Her columns mostly focused on Racism and the terrorism waged against black people in all areas of people activity. She succumbed to suicide in May of 1984 at the age of 32. Her suicide letter illustrates the degree to which White Supremacy decimated her mental health.

A Foot In Each World is a compillation of writings that was edited by her former husband Clarence Page. He includes some of McClain's poetry to reveal the greater depths of McClain's brilliance and heartache. It seems that her fear of being spurned or vilified by other black people was a constant source of despair She also seemed to harbor unsatisfied hopes of at least a few "Good Whites."

In an effort to be "neutral," "objective," McClain pointed out how Washington's behavior was not always fitting of the mayor's office - similar to her remarks on Jesse Jackson's fitness for the White House. McClain also seem conflicted about allegations that the White dominated press practiced Racism in it's coverage of Mayor Washington and black Chicagoans in general.

Laquan McDonald and Bettie Jones are rolling over in their graves. And speaking of grieving black families, presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton is using fried okra, pork chops and the race card to compel black people to vote for her. Yes, fried okra.

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 3rd study session on Sam Greenlee's 1969 masterpiece, The Spook Who Sat By The Door. The top seller was transformed to a major motion picture in 1973 and remains a celebrated, and deliberately hidden, commentary on Racism. Greenlee died in 2014. The main character, Dan Freeman, becomes the first black spy at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Freeman learns as much as possible in order to share his knowledge and expertise with terrorized black people, so that they can orchestrate a counter-violence offensive against White Supremacy. Last week's session detailed Freeman's longtime sweetheart, Joy. The book explains how Freeman and Joy had similar impoverished upbringings and used college to improve their quality of life. In contrast to Freeman, Joy has no interest in countering Racism; she's more concerned with having a comfortable life and the acquisition of money and things. Freeman's battles with black people who think like Joy are a central fixture of the text. Freeman resigns his post at the CIA, returns to Chicago and after a violent skirmish with the teen leaders of the Cobras - a Chicago gang, Freeman offers to teach them to wage counter-war against Racists. Dr. Niyana Rasayon and others note that the FBI continues to use Greenlee's book to train new agents. #RacismIsNotAPrivielge INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

The bestseller was modified into a major motion picture in 1973 and remains an acclaimed critique of Racism. Greenlee died in 2014. The main character, Dan Freeman, becomes the first black agent at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Freeman acquires as much knowledge as possible in order to transfer that intelligence to terrorized black people so that they can organize a counter-violence offensive against White Supremacy. Last week's session stressed how members of the Cobras, a black Chicago gang, became motivated scholars. Freeman articulates his rage about the waste of black genius that White Supremacy guarantees. Freeman also demands that the Cobras follow logic and knowledge as opposed to worshiping an individual; his reasoning sounds identical to Mr. Neely Fuller's concept of "united, independent" codification. Tellingly, Greenlee's band of counter-racists camafloug their militant intentions by adhering to commonly held Racist notions - that black people are drug fiends ands morons.

The bestseller was adapted into a major motion picture in 1973 and remains a treasured examination of Racism. Greenlee died in 2014. The protagonist, Dan Freeman, becomes the first black agent at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Freeman acquires as much knowledge as possible in order to share his training and expertise with terrorized black people so that they can coordinate a counter-violence offensive against White Supremacy. Last week's session provided a well known, painful narrative of a black teen being killed by Chicago police. Freeman and his long time friend and police detective, Phil Dawson, argue over the efficacy of the "riots." Dawson minimizes the System of Racism and argues that "burning and looting" will do no good. Freeman reminds Dawson that victims of oppression always fight back and that Racists think of all black people - education or no - as niggers. Their conversation sounds like many of the conversations concerning Black Lives Matter and the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, Baltimore, Maryland and Charlotte, North Carolina. Freeman and the Cobras, his revolutionary black gang members, use the conflagration to begin their own campaign of counter-violence.

The main character, Dan Freeman, becomes the first black agent at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Freeman gains as much inteligence as possible in order to teach his skills and expertise to terrorized black people so that they can train for a counter-violence offensive against White Supremacy. Last week's session discussed the invasion of Chicago by white National Guard troops. The invaders' explicit directive was to restore White rule and negro subordination. Dan Freeman assuaged the angst of White fellow White social workers, while preparing the Cobras to devastate the National Guard. Freeman's counter-revolutionaries capture Colonel "Bull" Evans and poison him with LSD. Significantly, in the film, Evans is drugged and killed; in the text he's allowed to live. We'll complete the book this week and present our overall impression of Greenlee's work and what truths this novel presents about White Supremacy.

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the weekly Compensatory Call-In. We encourage non-white listeners to dial in with their codified concepts, new terms, observations, research findings, workplace problems or triumphs, and/or suggestions on how best to Replace White Supremacy With Justice ASAP. We'll use these sessions to hone our use of words as tools to reveal truth, neutralize White people. We'll examine news reports from the past seven days and - hopefully - promote a constructive dialog. #ANTIBLACKNESS Dr. Frances Cress Welsing was one of the few people on the planet to correctly predict the conclusion of the 2016 United States presidential election. President-Elect Donald Trump trounced Hillary R. Clinton in one of the most unanticipated upsets in political history. As shock made room for acceptance, a few things were abundantly clear. White Women are the one demographic to deliver an unanticipated bounty to Trump's campaign. According to numerous reports, more then 50% of White Women supported Trump, evidencing that the ceaseless prattle about Trump's misogyny and "toxic masculinity" didn't discourage most White Women from prioritizing their racial interest. This election was also a stinging reminder of the dishonesty of White Women and White Men. Countless individuals classified as White renounced and upbraided Trump for months. Logic dictates that a sizable portion of Whitefolks publicly excoriated Trump, but cast a ballot for him behind closed doors. Whites of the Occupy Wall Street ilk have been marching and looting in numerous cities from Chicago, Illinois to Portland, Oregon. A number of brazen Trump supporters have basked in their electoral euphoria by terrorizing random black children. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

Federal prosecutors read Roof's journal where he logged: "I would like to make it crystal clear I do not regret what I did. I am not sorry. I have not shed a ear for the innocent people I killed." The convicted White killer charged that it's "not fair" he has to listen to testimony from the black victims' families. While Roof's South Carolina death penalty trial continues, a black 15-year-old girl was savagely thrown to the ground by an enforcement official stationed at a North Carolina school. Witnesses reported that the child attempted to break up a fight involving her sister before being mauled by officer Ruben De Los Santos; he's now on leave. Speaking of reverse racism, a group of black Chicago youth are facing torture and hate crime charges after viral video purportedly shows them "torturing" a special-needs White male. The suspects reportedly yelled "F*ck Donald Trump" and "F*ck white people" into the camera. One of the sole constructive reports of the new year is journalist and Pennsylvania inmate Mumia Abu Jamal has been granted access to hepatitis C treatment. The political prisoner has been gravely ill for more than a year while white officials jepardized his life by prohibiting medical care. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

The commander in chief gave his farewell address in Chicago, Illinois on Tuesday. He devoted a significant amount of time addressing the problem of "race." However, he only used the term "racism" once - while discussing the idea of "reverse racism." Speaking of persecuted Whites, U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions spent week the refuting charges of Racism during his confirmation hearing for the position of Attorney General. Much like Trump's victory, there's every reason to think Sessions will be confirmed and will confiscate Loretta Lynch's post. In South Carolina, a federal jury sentenced convicted mass murderer and Admitted White Supremacist Dylann Storm Roof to death. Federal prosecutor Jay Richardson labeled Roof an "unrepentant Racist." After his sentence, Roof declared, "I felt like I had to do it and I still feel like I had to do it." #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 6th study session on Coretta Scott King's 2017 autobiography, My Life, My Love, My Legacy. It's been eleven years since Mrs. King's death. Before her transition, the civil rights icon collaborated with acclaimed journalist, Rev. Dr. Barbara Reynolds. The New Orleans Tribune recommends that everyone read this book, describing it as a timely read for the current climate of aggressive and "emboldened" White Supremacy. Last week's session chronicled the Dr. King's Chicago campaign for improved housing and public service for black residents of the "Windy City." Mrs. King describes the abysmal conditions of their shabby apartment, which was a better property than what most black Chicagoans were offered. Mrs. King also documented the unabashed terrorism they were subjected to by northern Whites. Last weeks segment also detailed the April 4th 1968 assassination of Dr. King. Mrs. King provides an unflinching description of her young children finding out that their father had been killed. Harry Belafonte, Andrew Young and others offered generous support and encouragement to the King family. Former Attorney General Bobby Kennedy, who authorized COINTELPRO surveillance of Dr. King, delivered extra phone lines to the King house to help Mrs. King handle the extraordinary volume of calls. We'll contrast this text to other autobiographies covered on the book club - Maya Angelou, Assata Shakur, Malcolm X.

Most black citizens had their view of the fireworks obstructed by the numerous nooses Whites have recently brandished to terrorize and intimidate. White violence been so severe, a black male in Alabama, David Sadler, staged a faux hanging to protest the the barbaric abuse of black people. Fresh after the horrors of Flint, Michigan's water being poisoned, an increasing number of black employees at the Chicago Water Department charge that they've been subjected to a racially poisonous environment, denied seniority, and that black females were targeted for sexually crude verbal attacks. A class action lawsuit has been filed. In Virginia, the Klu Klux Klan has weekend plans for an armed rally in protest of a Confederate statue that's been scheduled for removal. Virginia is an open-carry state. And right on cue for the country's "birthday" and the reminiscing about the nations' halcyon time, Sally Hemings, one of the enslaved and raped black people Thomas Jefferson "owned," will now have her own display at Monticello... which is down the road a bit from the armed KKK rally. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

Incredibly, the police shooting of a Black citizen sparked the conflict fifty years ago. Speaking of race soldiers, in 2014, Chicago's Police Sgt. George Granias assaulted a Black female who had been arrested. Apparently, when not bludgeoning unarmed citizens who've not been conivcted, Sgt. Granias owns a litany of White Supremacist websites - like "NiggaDown.com" and "Niggerrefic.com." In fact, the release of this information has not hampered his continued employment. The week provided fresh options for summer entertainment that fuels racial healing and solidarity. War for the Planet of the Apes opened this week, where militant primates clash with humans again for supremacy. Former NRA president Charleston Heston isn't in this one. Away from the big screen, prize fighters Floyd Mayweather Jr.and Conor McGregor began their world promotional tour for their highly anticipated bout this summer. McGregor allegedly kicked off the festivities with racial insults, calling Mayweather a boy and demanding his black opponent "dance" for him. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

Citizens have protested the killing and the suspiciously released edited video footage of the killing. Black enforcement officers have spent a lot of time in front of the camera answering questions about Augustus's killing.

          Live & Undercover: ‘BlacKkKlansman’      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Ron Stallworth lived it, wrote about it and now Spike Lee has filmed it. BLACKkKLANSMAN is Stallworth’s true story of how as a Colorado Springs African-American undercover cop he infiltrated the local Ku Klux Klan chapter in 1979 so successfully they voted him president.  In person during a nearly half-hour interview at the Essex House Stallworth, who was in law enforcement for nearly 40 years until he retired in 2006, emerges as an ideal interviewee. He answers questions as if he’s on the witness stand, answering in complete, direct sentences in a clear measured cadence.  It reminded me of the old Fifties documentary-like TV series DRAGNET where the star-producer Jack Webb’s Joe Friday always said, ‘Just the facts, ma’am.’

Stallworth, 65, was born in Chicago, raised in El Paso, TX and was the first African-American in the Colorado Springs Police Dept. in 1969 as a Police Cadet. In 1979 a local paper’s Want Ad from soldier at Fort Carson announced he was founding a new KKK chapter. Stallworth picked up the phone, called the soldier, impersonating a white recruit.  Thus began the undercover sting operation.  Eventually he talked to the head of the KKK, the Grand Dragon himself David Duke, complaining that he was still waiting to get his membership card. Duke personally signed and mailed it, where it was framed and hung in the police station. The case was kept secret until Stallworth published his memoir in 2014. A revised version with 8 pages of photographs was published in July by Flatiron Books with a movie tie-in cover. The book is subtitled: RACE, HATRED AND THE UNDERCOVER INVESTIGATION OF A LIFETIME.  The interview has been slightly condensed and edited.

 

Q:  If you’re here Ron, you are happy with the movie. What did you think the film got right in the best way?

RON STALLWORTH: The movie captured the essence of me at 25, going thru this investigation. The problems I had internally, initially to launch it. The problems of working within the police department when I first got hired.  They took some liberties there. I was 19 when I got hired and I wasn’t a police officer, I was a police cadet working in the civilian support capacity. They made it a composite for the purposes of the movie, but they captured what was going on in that environment with officers coming to the Records Bureau and asking for a record on a ‘toad.’ Which was a code word for blacks back then.  It captured things like that very well.  The encounters I had with the Klan members, the phone conversations – it captured that very well to the degree that it was touched upon.  All in all Spike did a masterful job putting his piece together.  What I REALLY liked was the fact that he connects the historical thread between the Confederacy, David Duke the Klan leader I was dealing with, the Charlottesville incident and Donald Trump. Masterful connecting that thread – and I applaud him for it.

 

Q: Ron has a great line in the movie about David Duke –

RS: ‘Do you really think there could be somebody like that in the White House?’ That was never said by me. But that was a subtle reference to what we have today.

 

Q: I talked to Washington yesterday and he said there could be a whole other movie about your issues getting into the Colorado Springs police force. In the movie all we see is Frederick Weller’s smarmy racist cop.

RS:  Weller played that character to the extreme – I never encountered anything like that.  It was very subtle. When I got hired at the age of 19 there were no blacks in the department. Period. For about four months I was the only black in the department. So things that were said or done were done very subtlely done. The most overt act, if you will, was the use of the word ‘toad’ when they would come to me in the Record Bureau and ask me to run a record on a ‘toad.’ My form of rebellion was when John David says, ‘There are no toads here.’  Once I figured out – because it took me a while to figure it out – to notice that every time I was checking up on a ‘toad’ the ‘toad’ was black.  That’s when I realized toad was a code word they used for black names.  When I figured it out, I stopped responding to it. If they came in I would ignore the request.  If they said, ‘Speak a little louder,’ I’d ignore it. Finally they’d say, ‘CADET, I’M TALKING TO YOU. GIVE ME A RECORD ON’ – whatever the person’s name is. They’d tell me the date of birth and ethnicity and at that time I’d respond.  If they ordered me, I’d say, ‘I can’t do this. We don’t have any toads here. We have people. If you give me the name of the person that you’re looking for, I can look it up.’  That was my form of rebellion. 

 

Q: What was the reason this was kept secret for 35 years – until you published your memoir?

RS: The investigation? There was no reason.  Other than I didn’t feel like writing the story.

 

Q: But there was never anything in the paper?  It basically was that the Klansman that were in the military were sent elsewhere?

RS:  Two who were at NORAD [their fingers were on nuclear triggers] were transferred out. But there was no publicity because I was ordered to destroy the files when the Klan decided they wanted Ron Stallworth to be the local chapter leader. The chief basically said, ‘Shut the investigation down now. We’ve gone far enough.’ I argued against it; he was adamant. ‘Shut it down.’ Then he told me to destroy all the files that had been generated. He said, ‘I don’t want it to leak out that we had cops in the Klan. Destroy the files. Don’t talk to anybody about it.’

 

Q: And you kept the files?

RS:  First opportunity after being told that, I walked out of the office with two notebooks about three inches thick with reports. That’s why I have my KKK certificate [he takes out his wallet and shows me his Klan membership card].

 

Q: For 1979.  When you retired in Utah from Public Safety chief, that’s when you wrote your memoir?

RS: I retired in 2006. I didn’t start writing until 2013. Why? I talked about writing the story for years but I never had the gumption until 2013. ‘Now’s the time.’

 

Q:  When Spike took on the movie – I know John David said Spike did not want him to meet you until they began filming – did Spike not want to see you as well?

RS: I didn’t meet Spike until they brought me to Brooklyn last October for the cast reading.  That’s when I met John David, Topher Grace [who plays David Duke], Adam Driver, Laura Harrier. I met them all at that time. John David told me then that he was not going to imitate me. He said, ‘I can’t imitate you, I’m just going to try and channel you. Try to capture the essence of you.’  He captures the 25 year old me very well.

 

Q: Did you have an Afro like that?

RS: Maybe an inch shorter. Yes, I did have an Afro similar to that.

 

Q: And did you have a beard?

RS: At various times in my undercover career I had either a full beard, a short-cropped beard, Fu Manchu, a plain simple moustache or just a goatee. We did that – generally we would  have a look that we would maintain for anywhere from 3 to 6 months. Then change our facial features, change our hairstyle, so we would look different and believe it or not it worked. One time I made a drug case against a guy wearing a full beard and 6 months later I trimmed it into a goatee and made another drug bust with the same guy -- and he didn’t recognize me.

 

Q: We don’t say criminals are the smartest people. The movie has your first undercover assignment covering a Stokely Carmichael rally and Ron gets involved with a woman he meets there.  Was that invented for the movie?

RS:  Yes, because the love interest was part of the script.  It didn’t happen in real life. Stokely Carmichael actually happened. 

 

Q: Were you married during this time?

RS:  No.

 

Q: You were free and unattached and could risk your life without upsetting anyone except maybe your parents.

RS:  I didn’t care what anybody thought, I was a grown adult. My mother never liked that I worked undercover.  She always worried.  ‘Don’t worry, it’s my job.’ My aunt who helped raise me, her older sister, was concerned. I told her the same. The woman I was dating and later married, she became my first wife – she deceased now. Cancer.  She knew some of the undercover stuff I did, not all  because I didn’t tell her everything. She never worried about it other than to be careful because she knew I was going to do it anyway. It’s something I wanted to do.

 

Q: Where did this passion to be undercover come from Ron?

RS:  In terms of a police career that’s what I wanted to do. That developed when I was working in the I.D. Bureau – I was 19 at the time – the narcotics officers would come up and ask for records. When I gave them the records, I saw them and the first time this happened I was, WHAT is this long-haired hippie guy coming up to me, asking for a record, for? Who the hell does he think he is! It had to be explained to me: Those are narcs.  They work undercover, that’s why they look the way they do.  They’re cops. Give them anything they need. Don’t recognize them when you see them in public because they may be working a case and your recognition of them could probably jeopardize their lives.  I thought, Damn that’s neat! I’m a 19 year old kid.  I wanted a little bit of that action.  First of all, I don’t like the idea of uniforms. I’ve never been a uniform person.  I wore my uniform with pride and in my opinion I look good in it.  But I never wanted to put the uniform on and make a career as a uniformed cop.  I wanted to be an undercover cop, blending in with the public, looking like a black militant or a long-haired hippie yet having a gun on my hip, a badge in my wallet and able to enforce the law.  To me, that was the neatest thing in the world.  It was also challenging. Police work is very routine.  You get a complaint about a dog barking, you go to the people and tell them to shut their dog’s barking. And you go on to the next thing.  What challenge is there in stuff like that?  I wanted something that would challenge me. And going into a situation and pretending to be something you’re not and your only true weapon is your ability to talk and work your way out of it.  Not only in it, but out of it. Because everybody carries guns and the fact that you carry one is not that important. I liked the challenge of going into those environments and being someone I wasn’t. And being successful and completing it. That’s where I wanted to go from the very beginning.

  

Q: The movie has Adam Driver’s cop impersonate Ron Stallworth when he meets the Klan face to face.  Two things: Your voice when you were on the phone speaking to Klansmen, did you alter it?

RS: No. I have read where reporters have said, ‘He spoke to the Klan in his white voice.’ When I read those reports it pisses me off.  ‘Cuz there was no attempt to disguise my voice. I talked to these guys on the phone just like I’m talking to you. Because when you’re undercover you try to stay as true to your identity as you are. You know who you are and you know how you normally function. If you try to put on a pretense, such as assuming a fake voice, you have to put on that fake voice ALL OF THE TIME. And you can’t afford to slip out of it. It’s too dangerous. So you talk to them just normally in your regular manner. When I would get on the phone I would simply say, ‘Hi, this is Ron Stallworth. Let me talk to the Grand Wizard’  -- or whatever the case may be. But never, ever did I attempt to disguise my voice. 

Q: And the guy who went to the Klan meetings as ‘Ron’ – did he do something to his voice to sound like you?

RS: Same principle. You can’t play with things like that working undercover.  You stay as true to who you are as possible. He did the same thing – and that’s why this investigation was so hilariously funny.  Because it never should have been successful. They should have recognized from the very beginning that the Ron Stallworth on the phone – that voice is totally different from the Ron Stallworth they’re having meetings with.  Chuck, the officer I describe in the book, who played me, Chuck’s voice is very distinctively different than mine.  A deaf person could tell that! These guys didn’t figure it out. Only once was I challenged. I went to a meeting – and this is depicted in the movie.  Chuck went to the meeting that I had set up and then I called, pretending to be the person who had been at that meeting because I wanted to follow up on something.  I called and immediately Ken O’Dell, the local organizer, he said, ‘What’s wrong with your voice?’  So I said [Stallworth coughs twice, assumes a lighter husky voice], ‘I have a sinus infection.’  He said, ‘I get those all the time. Here’s what you need to do.’ He prescribed a remedy for me.

Q: And that’s as far as it ever went?

RS: That’s as far as it ever went in terms of challenging my voice. 

Q: What about your life since you’ve published this book?  You’ve been anonymous your whole life and now you’re 65 years old – congratulations! – and you’re a celebrity.  The original book has been out, what, 4 or 5 years?

RS: The original book was published in 2014. The revised, edited edition came out June 5th by Flatiron Books. I don’t consider myself a celebrity. I’m still the same kid from El Paso, Texas, that I’ve always been. I’ve been blessed with some good fortune as a result of writing this book.  I understand my reality has changed a little bit. I have relatives and friends coming out of the woodwork that I’ve never HEARD OF before!  I have people who think I’m a millionaire – and I’m far from that.  I’m not even remotely close to that.   But they think I’m a millionaire now because I have a book out and a movie’s been made and the money’s just rolling into me. When I tell them that that’s not true, they don’t believe me.  I have people calling me up, messaging me, just to say ‘Thank you for what you did. We appreciate the service you did.’ That I find fascinating, that people would take the time to do that. I got one of those messages last night.  So my reality has changed but I don’t see myself as a celebrity.  I ‘met’ John David on the phone – he called me up to talk to me a few weeks before I flew to Brooklyn for the cast reading.  He called me up to talk to me and I still have his message on my phone because he essentially said, ‘I’m a little intimidated Mr. Stallworth. I’m going to play you and I want to capture your story, your “essence.”’ He said, ‘Wow! I am so intimidated, this is real scary.’ When we met he said, ‘Sir, it’s such an honor to meet you,’ and I said, ‘No, the honor is mine. You’re the celebrity. I should be intimidated to talk to you.’

Q:  Has anybody threatened you? Has anybody said, ‘I’m from the Klan. You’re a dirty dog and humiliated us and we’re going to get even’?

RS:  Not yet! I fully expect at some point in time will come across. But that’s par for the course. You deal with that as an undercover cop. I’ve been threatened before. When I was working narcotics I got threatened on several occasions.  Once in a courtroom testifying at a trial.  I’m accustomed to have people make threats against me. I fully expect at some point in time one of these white supremacists will say something. They can say anything they want just don’t try to mess with my wife.

Q: So you’ve remarried.

RS:  I have. Been married a little over a year now. 

Q: Is that the first time since your wife died?

RS:  Yes, it’s my second marriage.

Q:  And children?

RS: I have two sons by my first wife, 32 and 28.  They’ve known about my work all along. They knew about this story 8 years ago. They’re very excited about the movie coming out and I said, ‘Recognize that it’s your name coming out of the screen. Run with it! Have fun with it. Tell your friends that’s your dad and if it helps your status with your friends, enjoy it.’ 

Q: Are either of them in law enforcement?

RS: No.

Aussie Aboriginal Series: MYSTERY ROAD

Anyone who was first introduced to Judy Davis in her mesmerizing, galvanizing film debut, the 1979 Australian hit MY BRILLIANT CAREER, should not miss the Aboriginal Aussie series MYSTERY ROAD.  This is a chance to see one of the globe’s greatest English-speaking actors in a truly unexpected role.   Davis was last seen as viperous gossip monarch Hedda Hopper, needling Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in Ryan Murphy’s FEUD. In MYSTERY ROAD, which premieres on AcornTV Monday August 20 with its six episodes, Davis is local cop Emma James in dusty one-horse town Patterson where there are many sheep and cattle and little else. This contemporary drama with its Western setting is hardly where anyone might expect to find Davis who nevertheless gives Emma a solidity, common sense and irritability without a trace of campy theatrics. Emma we discover is to the manor born; her equally wealthy brother runs an enormous sheep and cattle station.  When two local boys go missing, the search that is the series’ motor begins. One is a local hero who has disappeared, an aboriginal soccer star. The other, a white drifter recently arrived from who knows where, might have been his mate or his lover. Or drug dealers. Emma is forced to partner with detective Jay Swan (Aaron Pederson) on a twisty road of discovery, which too often is set in the local bar with ever present mugs of beer.  Swan, a solid, almost monumental aboriginal presence, defines ‘speak softly, carry a big stick.’ His ex-wife shows up, looking for their daughter -- who isn’t missing for long but sees MYSTERY ROAD become a domestic drama with gender a telling factor in what has and what will happen to the many characters including a just paroled pedophile rapist. Meanwhile Davis struts, rolls her eyes and commands everyone’s attention with her insistence on pursuing the truth, wherever it may lead.  The scenery, picturesque but so dry you’ll want to grab one of those mugs, looms mightily as its own character.

 

NEW DVDs:

Action and attitude are the hallmarks of STRIKE BACK SEASON FIVE (Blu-ray + Digital, Home Box Office, Unrated). Yes, SEASON FIVE boasts a new troupe of terrorist-busting  commandos engaged in derring do in North Korea. The Cinemax series works as an update on weekly serials with its continuing storyline that usually ends each episode with a cliffhanger.  STRIKE BACK’s rightly won fans who find its mix of bravery, courage, camaraderie and patriotism irresistible.  Here is CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON, CRAZY RICH ASIANS’ legendary Michelle Yeoh, England’s Robson Green (GRANTCHESTER) and the two stars bearded Sullivan Stapleton and square jawed Philip Winchester.

Inspired by the death of a classmate, an Iowa high school’s girls volleyball team captain, THE MIRACLE SEASON (DVD, 20th Century Fox Entertainment, PG) handles tragedy, trauma and regeneration sensitively.  As Iowa City West High returns for a new year, having won the state women’s volleyball championship the previous year, they are devastated when their best and most loved player Caroline ‘Line’ Found (Danika Yarosh) dies in a road accident.  From the title you know going in, that despite a bad start the kids will rally for Line and follow their motto inspired by Caroline’s optimistic, outgoing attitude: ‘Live Like Line.’ Helen Hunt and William Hurt are on hand to give gravitas amid a cast of unknowns. Hunt, who looks wonderful simply because she looks perfectly normal (no weird cosmetic procedures or Botox), is fine as the understanding coach who knows she can’t push her hurting players too much or too soon. Hurt is the anguished father who loses his wife to cancer soon after his daughter’s funeral.  School sports tragedies ironically make for ideal drama – to be so young with so much hope for the future and have it brutally crushed, ended.  And then to rise up as the team channels its sorrow into a positive force and beats the odds to win. A more stirring, similarly themed film is the 2006 WE ARE MARSHALL about the W. Virginia football team wiped out in a 1970 plane crash and subsequent efforts in ’71 to field a team. 

William Witney fans rejoice!  Here in an excellent print is Witney’s 1956 A STRANGE ADVENTURE (Blu-ray, Kino Lorber Studio Classics, Unrated). Set in a snowy hideaway where the good guys are held hostage by ruthless gangsters ADVENTURE is a mix of hotrod teen drama, classic film noir and old fashioned melodrama.  The Republic Pictures production boasts a transparent femme fatale in Liz Taylor lookalike Marla English, first-rate sociopathic villainy from typecast Jan Merlin and Nick Adams, who was in the previous year’s REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE with his good buddy James Dean. Here he’s an asthmatic crook.  Toby Roan and Jay Dee Witney offer an informative audio commentary. 

You won’t get a better look at Sixties’ Swinging London than the satirical SMASHING TIME (Blu-ray, Kino Lorber Studio Classics, Unrated).  This 1967 romp teamed two Bright British Lights – Lynn Redgrave, from the acting dynasty who had won fame as GEORGY GIRL (’66), and Rita Tushingham, the sparrow-like Liverpudlian star of the seminal British working class, kitchen sink dramatic trio, A TASTE OF HONEY, THE LEATHER BOYS and GIRL WITH GREEN EYES.  Thanks to film historian Kat Elinger’s brightly informed audio commentary, SMASHING TIME’s connection to what came before and its suggestion of where Britain was headed becomes clear.  A flop when first released, it’s wonderful mix of slapstick – just seeing the two stars side by side with Redgrave towering a head taller than Tushingham is a visual gag – satire and wish fulfillment plotting as the two lower class mates become celebrated and famous.  On hand, Michael York (Bob Fosse’s Oscar-winning CABARET was in his future).

Tim Robbins devoted himself to live, no-budget, avant garde theater as soon as he graduated from UCLA and CRADLE WILL ROCK (Blu-ray, Kino Lorber Studio Classics, R), a 1999 film revolving around a landmark 1930s agitprop play, reflects that.  As director-actor Robbins is best known for acting in THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, BULL DURHAM and MYSTIC RIVER and writing and directing the anti-capital punishment drama DEAD MAN WALKING that won his longtime companion Susan Sarandon her Best Actress Academy Award. CRADLE, blessed with Robbins’ audio commentary, is set in New York during the Depression and highlights Orson Welles’ efforts to present his legendary stage production THE CRADLE WILL ROCK uncensored.  Here too is Nelson Rockefeller commissioning Mexico’s proudly anti-capitalist Communist artist Diego Rivera to create Rockefeller Center lobby murals (they’re still there!) which he … censored!  The extraordinary cast includes Bill Murray, Vanessa Redgrave, Sarandon, Hank Azaria, John Cusack, Jack Black, Paul Giamatti and Ruben Blades.

          Chicago River a true thing of beauty for boating      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The term visionary is often applied to scientists, musicians and heavy duty thinkers who claim to know the true meaning of life. I'm not sure what category Pat Harrison lays claim to, but I believe he's on his way to establishing himself as one of the sharper crayons in the box. I'll tell you why I hold to that belief in a moment or two.Hundreds of thousands of people make the trek downtown to work and bring home a paycheck. Many take public transportation be it a bus, el train or Amtrak from the suburbs and various sections of Chicago.They get off their mode of public transportation and scurry to their jobs in various work places around the downtown area.They rarely see the "backside" of the buildings they inhabit during their 9-5 jobs, except when they stop for lunch or a coffee break and subsequently find themselves on a riverfront that has transformed itself into a real spectacular gem of an architectural dream come true,I personally found myself going downtown 5 days a week, to work, to learn about life as well as experience the energy.If you haven't seen the river side of the tall shiny buildings and glittering office and condo structures, your personal education of Chicago itself and what it has to offer you is a pure delight you're missing. Add to all that beauty and this new look is a host of fishing opportunity. something city dwellers have touted for well over a decade or so. Enter Pat Harrison who just happens to be quite a real visionary. Born on the city's South Side at a time when neighborhoods were sectioned off by what churches families attended as well as bearing old country accents and customs.For almost three years, Pat has been after me to ride with him in his boat while he shows me the ins and outs of the Chicago River and the gilded towers that rise above the streets below and wind up lining the riverbanks.It's a combination of fishing and an outstanding scenic tour that reopened my eyes to the city I was born into as well as growing up amid the culture wars and neighborhood turnovers.Pat runs a guide service simply called Pat Harrison Outdoors (patharrisonoutdoors.com).We met Harrison at a South Side city launch ramp. We slowly made our way to the downtown area where the river itself became a crystal clear accomplishment.The "old man", the senior Mayor Daley had his dream come true, always telling the public people will be fishing in the river one day.We went through the Army Corps controlled locks leaving the downtown destination to others and headed for the rocky shoreline on the Lake Michigan side.We caught a couple smallmouth bass. Shortly thereafter the big lake became a choppy and roiled scenario.We returned to the river where my friend Phil and I proceeded to catch crappie and largemouth bass. Pat noted had we anchored at this one spot earlier in the morning, we would have encountered more largemouth and some catfish.I told Harrison to save all that for our next trip. As far as I know there aren't any other professional river fishing guides.I strongly urge you to take a day to fish and literally engulf yourself in the beauty of downtown Chicago from the river's perspective. • Contact Mike Jackson at angler88@comcast.net, catch his radio show 7-9 a.m. Sundays on WGCO 1590-AM (live-streamed at www.1590WCGO.com) and get more content at www.mikejacksonoutdoors.com.

          Colt Cabana Suing CM Punk For Over $1 Million      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Colt Cabana (Scott Colton) is suing CM Punk(Phillip Brooks) over legal fees related to their recent defamation lawsuit win over WWE's Dr. Chris Amann, according to a report from The Chicago Sun Times.

Cabana has filed a lawsuit against Punk in Cook County Circuit Court for breach of contract and fraud.

Colt's suit alleges that Punk promised to help him out with the legal bills from the defamation suit. Colt claims Punk told him that he would be "100% covered" in a text message. Punk has allegedly failed to keep that promise and Colt now has unpaid legal bills totaling $513,736. Punk asked Colt to pay half of the legal fees, which would be $256,868, allegedly saying, "You are on your own."

The lawsuit claims, "Brooks acted with fraud, malice and oppression toward Colton, with the deliberate intention of causing Colton harm."

Colt is asking for $200,000 in general damages, plus $1 million in punitive and exemplary damages, according to the lawsuit filing.

Colt and Punk were good friends for years and courtroom reports from the recent trial with Amann indicated that they were back on good terms. It's worth noting that they started out with the same legal team for the case against Amann but Colt did hire his own attorneys. The two had a falling out in 2016 but Colt said in a June 2018 interview that they were cordial, but he hesitated before saying they are still friends.

          A summer afternoon      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
On Tuesday we visited Cantigny park, which is located a couple of towns away from us. It is the former estate of Colonel Robert R. McCormick, who was the publisher of the Chicago Tribune. He served in World War 1 and saw action at the Battle of Cantigny. After returning home, he renamed his estate in honor of the battle.

Colonel McCormick never had children. When he died in 1955 he left his fortune to establish a charitable trust. He also directed that Cantigny should be transformed into a park for the general public to enjoy. The mansion was turned into a historic house museum which is open for tours.
There is also a war museum on the property. The First Division Museum chronicles World War 1 as well as later wars. Displayed outside the museum are tanks from the various wars. Children are allowed to climb on them. There are also beautiful gardens on the grounds.





We visited here often when the kids were small. They loved to climb on the tanks! 




 We took the house tour, and checked out the war museum. Both were great. Photos are not allowed inside the house. It Is filled with personal things, plus so many antiques and works of art. It is truly magnificent.


Here are a couple of museum pictures.







I thought of Amy while walking around the rose garden. I think everyone would enjoy it.

Giancarlo Stanton hit his first grand slam in over four years, Luis Severino settled down after a shaky start to become the first 15-game winner in the American League and the New York Yankees beat the Chicago White Sox 7-3 Wednesday night. Stanton gave the Yankees a 6-2 lead when he hooked a full-count fastball by Lucas Giolito (7-9) just inside the foul pole and into the right field seats with one out in the second. It was his sixth career grand slam and first since a walk-off grand slam against Seattle's Yoervis Medina on April 18, 2014.

Um, <strong><em>"Robinson"</em></strong> is the subject of this whole discussion. Tommy Robinson. (See title of posting.) . As somebody noted above, in the U.S. it's generally not terribly difficult for one to get oneself excused from jury duty. How easy it is in a given case probably depends on the jusrisdiction. . As for sequestration, bobby (above, August 9, 2018 at 9:03 pm) wrote: <blockquote>"But the threshold of adequate reason [for being excused from sequestration] isn’t all that high. If you need to go home to take care of your kids, if you have medical issues, if your old mother needs your help – usually enough."</blockquote> Your average "incarcerated" person is generally understood to be not merely "confined," but actually imprisoned. [Per the online OED (ruddy-Gawd-help-us, but never mind) defines "to incarcerate" as "to imprison or confine."] No one, for instance, would say that a horse in a fenced pasture is "incarcerated," though it is certainly confined (unless the fence is busted). The OED defines "sequester" as meaning, in this context, "to isolate or hide away." It says nothing about "imprisonment," with or without trial. .

 The History of the United States Part 5 (1865-1918)  The First Era

This time period of American history was an extraordinary transformative era. Everything changed in America after the U.S. Civil War. The North and the South (including the Midwest plus the West) became more industrialized. More Americans moved into the cities from rural locations. Many black people gained rights, but the racist backlash of Jim Crow apartheid harmed real black progress in the evils of lynching, violence, the burning of locations, rape (especially the rape of black women by white racist terrorists), and the denial of inherit voting rights. The era of Reconstruction saw historic first among many black politicians and many saw hope for the future, but it ended by 1877. Likewise African Americans formed numerous organizations and other institutions courageously to defend the human rights of black people. The end of the 19th century saw Native Americans continuously losing their lands, having their treaties broken, and many of them forced to live in harsh reservations, which was a total injustice. Immigrants came into America in the realm of 27.5 million people between 1865 and 1918). These new immigrants experienced both discrimination and hardships. Yet, they also made outstanding contributions to American society (from inventions to a myriad of cultural developments). The Gilded Age signified the growth of large corporations including robber barons. Also, it was a time where the labor movement increased in power in which they executed strikes in order for them to promote living wage,s better working conditions, and ending child labor. By the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, the Progressive era developed. It did numerous goods things in helping the poor, creating legitimate regulations to promote safety, promoting conservation including environmental protections, and holding companies accountable for their actions. Their weaknesses were that many of them ignored racism that harmed the lives of black Americans and some of them advanced the evil of eugenics.

The women suffragists fought for women to have the right to vote in America (plus worldwide) and by 1920, they were victorious in their determined efforts. This was a time when American imperialism expanded globally from the Caribbean to Asia. The end of his period of time started with World War I. U.S. forces came later into the battlefield on the side of the Allied forces. WWI saw new military weapons, chemical warfare, and a more globalized world society. Domestically, the suppression of civil liberties were commonplace, which was wrong. Americans supplies of food, military supplies, and other items were crucial in the Allied victory.  After WWI, a more internationalized world would be formed with the Treaty of Versailles and the League of Nations. Self-determination among nations plus other places expanded in places like China, Turkey, Poland, the Soviet Union, etc. American culture boomed and the continued fight for equality and justice (led by African Americans and other human begins of diverse backgrounds like Native Americans, Mexican Americans, Native Americans, women, the poor, immigrants, etc.) existed.

Reconstruction

Reconstruction changed the world forever. It dealt with debates about governmental power. Also, it gave black Americans freedom that didn’t exist before the Civil War. Some historians and scholars believe that Reconstruction started as early as 1863 when the Emancipation Proclamation was issued which freed slaves in the Confederacy. The end of the Civil War saw Southern cities like Charleston and Richmond completely demolished. The South’s total wealth declined. Southern factories, plantations, and railroads were gone. The South experienced desolations as a response to the Union’s efforts to end the Confederacy. The Confederacy is to be blamed for promoting oppression.  People talked about what to do with eleven states that rebelled against the Union. Reconstruction dealt with rebuilding the South, promoting the lives of newly black freed human beings, and the future of society. African Americans continued to fight for full citizenship and equal rights after the war. Three million African Americans in the South saw a new era and they mostly lived in rural communities. That is why tons of black people were farmers back then and many black Americans came into the cities of the South for economic opportunities. While some people like General William Tecumseh Sherman wanted millions of acres of lands to be given to former slaves by the federal slaves (like forty acres and a mule doctrine of Sherman), many southern landowners opposed this idea. African Americans from the South, during the Reconstruction period and beyond, fought fight for voting rights, access to education, and other benefits that most northern black people (and all black people in general) were fighting for too. Southern white racists would fight legitimate progress at every step of the way since they wanted their status and power in society along with racists being wicked.

As early as 1864, people increasingly knew that the Union was going to win the Civil War. So, people before 1865 talked about what do with newly freed black people once the war was over. There were three views back then. One view was the progressives who wanted land sent to black Americans and full equality. Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson were the moderates who wanted an immediate reconciliation of the Confederacy to the Union after the war was over. Both Lincoln and Johnson wanted a national healing and immediate admission of rebel states into the Union. Abraham Lincoln promoted the ten percent plan. This was the Proclamation of Amnesty and Reconstruction. It wanted ten percent of a state’s voters took a loyalty oath to the Union, and then the state would set up a new government. If the state’s constitution abolished slavery and provided education for African American, then that state would regain representation in Congress. In my personal, opinion, Lincoln was too generous and too accommodating to former Confederates. For example, Lincoln wanted to give pardons (not prison time) for Confederates. He considered compensating them for lost property. He recognized the pro-Union governments of Arkansas, Louisiana, and Tennessee even though they denied African Americans the right to vote immediately after the Civil War.

Then, you have the disgusting reactionaries who rejected political and social equality for black people. The progressives included black leaders and Radical Republicans who stood out to defend the Union and they wanted punishment (including making former Confederate states to have the stipulation of swearing allegiance to the Union) sent to the rebels for their actions of extremism during the Civil War too. One leader of the Radical Republicans was Thaddeus Stevens and Charles Sumer. They opposed Lincoln’s 10 percent plan since Confederates committed the crimes of enslaving black Americans and advancing the Civil War. Lincoln’s plan was rejected and replaced with the Wade-Davis bill in 1864. This policy required the state’s prewar voters to swear loyalty to the Union before the process of restoration started. It promoted guarantees of equality to African Americans. Lincoln ended this plan by a pocket veto or withholding his signature beyond the 10 day decline with the end of the congressional session. Lincoln was wrong to do this.

On March 3, 1865, the Freedmen’s Bureau was established. This was supported by Lincoln. It was formed to give assistance to newly emancipated African Americans. It had huge successes and large economic burdens including racist terrorism harming many schools of the Freedmen’s Bureau. It ended by 1872. The Freedmen’s Bureau wanted to give newly freed black persons food, clothing, health care, and education including for white poor folks of the South. It also helped to reunite black families who were split apart as a result of slavery. It was used to aid 4 million newly freed black human beings. It spent about $5 million to set up schools for former slaves. Howard University, Hampton University, and Fisk University were founded and financed with the help from the Freedmen’s Bureau too. After April 15, 1865, Andrew Johnson was President. Johnson would go on to be one of the racist Presidents in American history. Also, he refused to support even middle of road Reconstruction measures in a vindictive way. The Union General Benjamin Butler in 1865 was elected to Congress as a Radical Republican.

After Lincoln’s assassination in April 1865, Andrew Johnson became the next President. Like Lincoln, Johnson wanted to restore Southern states to the Union as quickly as possible. His plan was to allow any Confederate in the Union if they swore alleigance to the Union and the Constitution. He also anted each state to ratify the Thirteenth Amendment and draft a Constitution that abolished slavery. He wanted wealthy planters to write to him personally in order to get a pardon as he detested wealthy planters. Like many southerners, he was a stone cold racist who wanted America to be a “government for white men.” Andrew Johnson didn’t want to give black Americans the right to vote. He believed in states’ rights in allowing the states to deprive black people human freedoms. In December of 1865, most Confederate state had met Johnson’s plan for readmission when Congress reconvened. By December 6, 1865, the 13th Amendment was ratified.

The 13th Amendment abolished slavery in the United States of America. In the same year, Southern states increase the existence of Black Codes. Black Codes are Jim Crow laws that restrict the rights of African Americans involving voting, owning businesses, owning a gun, holding office, etc. Southern states started to allow even Confederates in Congress. The black odes forced African Americans to work in a few jobs like servants or farm laborers. Many states banned black people from owning land as owning land is a key prerequisite in real economic plus political power. Vagrancy laws existed that made any black person who didn’t have a job could be arrested and made to work as prison labor (which involved kidnapping and de facto slavery). During this time when with Union military occupation of the South, many white southerners openly used violence and intimidation to enforce the black codes. This was so evil that Radical Republicans and moderate Republican fought part against the South’s disrespect of the essence of Reconstruction. When southern representative came into Washington, D.C. Congress refused their seats. Congress used a committee to investigate the treatment of former slaves. The spring of 1866 saw more events. Radical Republicans wanted to defend the rights of black people while Johnson opposed this plan. Congress passed a bill to fund the Freedmen’s Bureau. It was given authority to punish state officials who failed to extend rights to African Americans. Johnson vetoed this bill.

April 9, 1866 was the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1866. This gave citizenship to African Americans and guarantees equal rights. It created federal guarantees of civil rights and tried to stop states trying to do evil. Johnson vetoed the law and defied Congress. Later, Congress overturned the veto to make the Civil Rights Act of 1866 the law of the land. The Memphis race riot from May 1-3, 1866 was when white racists and the police killed 46 Africans and destroyed 90 homes, schools, and four churches in Memphis, Tennessee. By July 30, 1866, the New Orleans race riot had the police to murder more than 40 black Americans and white Republicans. More than 150 people were wounded. 1866 was the year when the Ku Klux Klan was formed. It was a secret organization that wanted to use murder, violence, and rape to terrorize African Americans and establish white rule n the South. It was founded in Pulaski, Tennessee. Radical and moderate Republicans blamed Johnson’s total lenient policies of compromise for the violence against black people in the South. Radical Reconstruction started when more Radical Republicans gained power in Congress.

The 1867 Reconstruction act divided the former Confederacy states (of 10 of them) into five military districts via the Military Reconstruction Act of 1867. Congress had overridden President Johnson’s veto again. The generals (who were Union generals from the Civil War) ruled those districts until the states had an oath of allegiance to the Union (and allow African Americans suffrage). These districts wanted African American men to vote as women wouldn’t be allowed to vote until the 1900’s. In 1867, the Republican convention in New Orleans has a party platform including promoting equality for African Americans.

In 1867, tension with Johnson and the Congress increased. Congress passed the Tenure Office Act to control the President’s power. It said that the President must have Senate approval before getting rid of some members of his office. Later, he tried to get rid of the last Radical Republican in his cabinet who was Secretary of War Edwin Stanton. He barricaded himself in his office for nearly 2 month. Then, the House of Representative voted to impeach Johnson for trying to fire Stanton. Johnson was so stubborn that he had an impeachment trial by the Spring of 1868. From March to May of 1868, by one vote, the U.S. Senate failed to remove President Johnson from office. The moderates didn’t want Johnson to leave office. Andrew Johnson promised to enforce the Reconstruction Acts. The Fourteenth Amendment was ratified in July 21, 1868. This Amendment guaranteed due process and equal protection under the law to African Americans. The 14th Amendment wanted to punish any state the refused to allow black people the right to vote with losing House seats. It banned leading Confederate officials from holding federal or state offices. On November 3, 1868, President Ulysses S. Grant was elected President. He was the 18th President and a former Union general. He beat Democratic candidate Horatio Seymour of New York State and he had a majority of the white vote. Congress passed the Fifteenth Amendment in 1869. It forbade any state from denying suffrage on the grounds of race, color, or previous condition of servitude. Many southern racists used loopholes to deprive black people of voting rights by using literacy or property qualifications.

This harmed African Americans and the poor. The Enforcement Act of 1870 made intimidation of people having voting rights a federal crime. The first redeemer government was in Tennessee. This was in 1869 when TN replaced a biracial Republican state government with an all-white Democratic government. This was followed by Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia in 1870. 1870 was the year when all of the former Confederate states had met the requirements under Radical Reconstruction and rejoined the Union. The Republicans dominated state governments. More African Americans used their political power to be part of government at every level. More black people were now school superintendents, sheriffs, mayor, coroners, and legislatures in the South. The Republican Party also had members who were Scalawags or poor white people who agreed with Reconstruction. Carpetbaggers came from the North and they wanted economic profit in the South via businesses. Many of them were accused of financial exploitation of people. By February 23, 1870 was when the first black senator was elected. His name was Hiram Revels of Mississippi and he was in the U.S. Senate as the first black senator.

The Fifteenth Amendment was ratified on March 30, 1870. It extended the vote to all male citizens regardless of race or previous condition of servitude. In 1871, the 43nd Congress had five black members in the House of Representatives: Benjamin S. Turner of Alabama; Josiah T. Walls of Florida; and Robert Brown Elliot, Joseph H. Rainey and Robert Carlos DeLarge of South Carolina. The first African American governor was P. B. S. Pinchback, acting governor of Louisiana from December 9, 1872 to January 13, 1873. Pinchback, a black politician, was the first black to serve as a state governor, although due to white resistance, his tenure is extremely short. In 1874, for the first time since before the Civil War, Democrats control both houses of Congress. Robert Smalls, black hero of the Civil War, elected to Congress as representative of South Carolina. Blanche K. Bruce elected to U. S. Senate. Blanche was born in Virginia as a slave. She learned to read. She left the plantation and went into Missouri during the Civil War. He ran a school for black children and came into Oberlin College in Ohio. He was a great landowner at age 25 by 1866. By his mid-thirties in 1874, he was elected to the United States Senate. Ironically, no black Congressman was elected in the North until the twentieth century. Some Republicans were wrong to not want women’s suffrage immediately since they felt that they couldn’t get enough support to get voting rights for women. Black people and women gained new opportunities during Reconstruction from working in medicine, schools, etc. Many women were leaders in orphanages and relief programs.

Schools grew in the schools. Most were segregated. A few of the Radical Republicans wanted integration. Land speculation, illiteracy, and poverty were fought against by progressive people in the South. African Americans saw a new world with Reconstruction. Most black people in the South were farmers and wanted land to cultivate their own lives and families. Many organized economic institutions and civil rights groups to fight for their rights. The reason is that freedom must be established by both using economic and political power merged into one. In other words, we have to fight for just laws and get our economic power increased in order to fight poverty plus set up our own institutions to benefit the black community as a whole. Black people worked as cooks, carpenters, blacksmiths, and other workers in southern cities. Many experienced low pay, poor food, and substandard housing. African Americans churches were places where black people worshiped, established job opportunities, organized political movements, and helped to educate black people. In rural communities, sharecropping existed. There were share tenancy and tenant farming. Sharecropping was when a landowner dictated the crop and provided the sharecropper with a place to live. In return, a share of the harvested was given to the sharecropper. The problem was that brought supplies on credit with high interest and the sharecropper were forced to pay for these expensive items. Sharecroppers would in term be in debt.

These leaders during Reconstruction (from left to right) were Robert Brown Elliot, Robert Carlos DeLarge, and Octavius Catto.

Many landlords would lie about the costs of supplies and economic exploit sharecroppers who were both black people and poor whites. Tenant farming involved renting and money management problems existed too involving tenant farming. Sharecropping extended poverty in the black community. White racism and black scapegoating contributed to the violent backlash against Reconstruction. Republicans took over the governments of the South for a time. White racist southerners formed the Ku Klux Klan as a means to stop Reconstruction. The Klan burned homes, schools, and churches. They came out in night and killed, raped, and hanged African Americans and white progressives. Anyone (a minister, a teacher, politicians, etc.), who encouraged black people to vote, were readily assaulted and murdered by the Klan. The violence against black people was very large. The Congress acted by passing the Enforcement Acts in 1870 and in 1871. It made it federal offense to interfere with a citizen’s right to vote. Congress had hearing and invited black politicians and other people to talk about South. George Ruby of Texas told Congress that he dragged into the woods and beat him because he opened a school in Louisiana. Racism terrorism was in the North too. In Philadelphia, civil rights leader Octavius Otto was murdered by a racist mob. He was a teacher and Isaiah Wears and other black protested the racism found in the North as well. Hundreds of Klansmen were indicted in America via the Enforcement Acts. After 1872, violence against black people declined temporarily. With an ex-Confederate general Wade Hampton being elected in South Carolina, the white racist backlash grew. Ulysses S. Grant did many progressive things. His administration fought southern resistance to Reconstruction. His administration later had financial scandals. Grant defeated Horace Greeley in the 1872 election. Later, greed and economic corruption saw the start of the Gilded Age. The Panic of 1873 involved a recession with failed banks and overextended loans to the railroad industry. Job losses came about. 

On March 1, 1875, the Civil Rights Act of 1875 was enacted by Congress. It guaranteed equal rights to African Americans in public accommodations and jury service. It was ruled unconstitutional in 1883. In 1876, Republicans challenged the validity of the voting in South Carolina, Florida, and Louisiana. Wade Hampton was inaugurated the governor of South Carolina, which shown that Southern reactionary extremists didn’t want Reconstruction but oppression. In 1877, Rutherford B. Hayes was inaugurated as President. The Electoral Commission awarded disputed electoral votes to the republican candidate. In 1877, Reconstruction officially ends with the disgraceful Great Compromise of 1877. This allowed Rutherford Hayes to withdrawal federal troops from the South as a means for him to be President.  Reconstruction didn’t end because of one reason. They included: the Northern support evaporated (because of reforming politics and economic matters which is no excuse since you can handle all issues at the same time), Radical Republicans either passed away or retired, Southern racists gained power in Congress, racist terrorists harmed black people and black people lacked adequate protections, and the Supreme Court promoted decisions that attacked equality. The Supreme Court in the Slaughterhouse Cases of 1873 restricted the 14th Amendment in allowing states to regulate the scope of the Amendment.

States in the South soon deprived black people rights further. The 1876 decision of United States v. Cruikshank overturned the conviction of the racist Cruikshank and wanted states to handle 14th Amendment affairs (while saying that the 14th Amendment didn’t apply to individuals). Redeemers or Southern whites who hated Reconstruction took control of legislatures throughout the South. In 1874, Republicans lost control of the House of Representatives. Reconstruction has been debated to this day. The truth is that Reconstruction was a heroic, progressive experiment. Its end should be blamed on bigots. Its goals were noble and it caused an increase of the education of African Americans, the expansion of the industrial economy, and the growth of a tax supported educational system. After 1876, bitterness between North and South continued and 100 years after Reconstruction, the second Reconstruction of the Civil Rights Movement would finally end Jim Crow apartheid once and for all. Reconstruction expanded rights and opportunities for African Americans. Also, the Reconstruction period inspired women to fight for suffrage. Women should have the right to vote ASAP just like black Americans and suffrage activists continued in their cause. Reconstruction expanded the role of the federal government and the Republican Party became known as the party of Lincoln. The Democratic Party included both reactionary southerners and industrial Northerners. The Radical Republicans ended after Reconstruction, but new activists would develop to defend the human rights of black people and humanity in general. Reconstruction truly changed the world forevermore.

The West

One of the most important parts of American history deals with the Old West. For thousands of years, Native Americans were living in the Americas. After 1787, the Construction regulated trade among the federal government and the Native Americans. The history is clear that the federal government not only broke treaties with the indigenous peoples, but outraged kidnapped them and placed them into reservations. From the 1840’s to the 1880’s, more settlers desired more lands even on Native American’s lands. After the Civil War, only 200,000 Native Americans lived to the west of the Mississippi River. Native Americans lived in different cultures and lived in diverse areas. Plains tribes like the Sioux, Blackfeet, Crows, Comanches, and Cheyenne relied on the buffalo for survival literally. Native Americans viewed the land as sacred and it wasn’t to be owned for profit while many Europeans wanted to own the land for economic reasons. Clashes occurred among settlers and Native Americans. By the 1860’s, more laws forced Native Americans to live in reservations. Those areas heavily had poverty, dilapidated lands, and other problems. This was after the 1834 law that limited trade with Native Americans and limited white settlers in Indian Territory. Many white settlers brought diseases that harmed the Native American populations and hunters by the 1870’s almost made the buffalo extinct. Some people murdered buffalos for sport. Transpiration and technology rapidly expanded into the West. With that came more conflict among Native American lifestyles and the growing American nation. Horace Greeley of the New York Tribune encouraged people to travel into the West. In 1862, Sioux Native Americans fought settlers in eastern Minnesota over territories. The Sioux rebellion escalated in 1864 when Colorado militia murdered unarmed Cheyenne and Arapaho civilians. The Native Americans raised the American flag to promote peace, but the militia murdered men, women, and even children. This was the Sand Creek massacre. War grew. John Covington was the commanding officer of the incident.

During this time, the West was transformed by railroads, ranches, and mining. Mining communities desired gold, silver, and other resources. Some authorities hired vigilantes to enforce the law in mining towns. Some mining towns existed temporarily. Chinese Americans and others helped to create the Transcontinental Railroads that expanded the developments of cities and towns. Vaqueros and ranchers owned livestock. Cowboys helped to allow cattle to travel for months into various markets. Cowboys were white, Mexican, and African American men. To this day, cowboys perform nationwide and they include women too. The West was complex with discrimination and economic growth. It had Asians, black people, Mexicans, white people, Native Americans, etc. Homesteads expanded land. Exodusters included African American who wanted to escape the South in order to have self-sufficient, autonomous communities in places like Kansas and Oklahoma. By 1890, the Western frontier era ended. The new era of the West would be filled with challenges and fights for equality among Americans.

After the Civil War, both white and black Union soldiers joined forces to subdue the Native Americans. This was imperialism and it was wrong. Recruitment efforts existed to gain more U.S. soldiers for the job. The Plains Native Americans tried to hold onto to their territories, but the federal government wouldn’t let up. In 1866, Red Cloud and his allied lured Captain William Fetterman and his troops. They killed them. Some people wanted education for Native Americans while others wanted strict rule over them. The racist United States Indian Peace Commission wanted Native Americans to submit to white civilization in order for peace to come. The Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868 dealt with Sioux lands. Promises were broken with treaties and conflict continued. The Red River War existed in the late 1800’s as far as Texas. Comanche surrendered by 1875.

The Battle of the Little Big Horn was about lands. Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull wanted to drive out prospectors in their lands. By June 1876, General George Custer was defeated by Crazy Horse with his 2,000 Native Americans. Custer and his men died. Sitting Bull escaped into Canada. Crazy Horse and his followers surrendered by starvation and bad weather. Many of the Nez Perces came into reservations, Also, Chief Joseph tried to go into Canada, but he surrendered. He came into Washington, D.C. to defend the interests of his Native American people. The Ghost Dance revival inspired a new resistance movement against U.S. imperialism. In 1890, the government wanted to arrest Sitting Bull. There was the massacre in Wounded Knee, South Dakota where over 100 men, women, and children Native Americans were murdered by U.S. forces.  Assimilation came and many Native Americans were stripped of their rights and culture. Some reformers opposed the brutal treatment of Native Americans like the author Helen Hunt Jackson. Congress passed the Dawes Act in 1887. It dealt with land allotment to Native Americans and other issues. Native Americans would continue to fight for their freedom after the 1890’s too.

Industrialization and the Guided Age

The growth of industry after the U.S. Civil War transformed the total landscape of American society. This period also involved new inventions and the Gilded Age including the growth of unions (which were created to defend the rights of workers). The Industrial Revolution started in the late 1700’s. It grew in America by the 1800’s with railroads and other devices. Coal and iron was used as resources. By the 1850’s, a new era came about in America. This new era involved steel, oil, and the new power source of electricity. This was the time when goods were created for quicker and efficiently. Immigration grew in causing more labor resources to construct railroads, goods, and other services in America. The natural resources of wood from trees, oil, etc. were utilized in many machines. 1 million immigrants per year came into America by 1905. Horatio Alger wrote his novel that mentioned the story of a poor boy who worse to wealth and fame by working hard. This promoted capitalism and entrepreneurs. Capitalism believes that the free market enterprise should dictate the functions of the economy. Entrepreneurs invested in money in a product in order for them to make profit. They worked in favor of industrialization. The factories, the mines, and the railroads grew jobs and had foreign investment too. The government encourages the free enterprise system. The government gave millions of acres of lands to railroad builders, so they could link East and West. Congress passed protective tariffs or taxes that would make imported goods cost more than goods that were made locally. Back then, little regulation of businesses occurred, which was laissez faire capitalism.

The government promoted patents to protect inventors and their inventions. In 18976, Thomas Edison worked with wealthy industrialists like j. P. Morgan to promote a research laboratory at Menlo Park, New Jersey. Edison crated a patient for the electric light bulb by 1880. IN 2 years, he installed a street lighting system in New York City.  The telegraph was invented in 1844 by Samuel Morse. The telegraph sent communications among thousands of miles in America. In 1876, Alexander graham Bell invented the telephone and in 1896, Guglielmo Marconi created the wireless telegraph which influenced the development of radio. The sewing machine was created by Elias Howe in 1846. The safety elevator was formed by Elisha Otis. In 1884, the improved steam boiler furnace was created by African American Granville Woods. This helped to power trains. Steel would grow being lightweight, but powerful. Such steel was used in skyscrapers and suspension bridges. The Brooklyn Bridge is a suspension bridge being the first of its kind spanning the East River in New York City. It was completed in 1883. It was the largest bridge in the world back then. Modern time zones would form by the 18 80’s and growth would develop mass production. World markets would be linked more closely with the explosion of modern inventions. More Americans moved into the cities from rural farms. America became a more powerful global political, economic power. Industrial waste increased including dust storms and agricultural problems too, so the environmental movement inspired the creation of the National Park Service and Yellowstone Park in 1872.

Image result for robber baronsImage result for robber barons

With the growth of business, corporations would dominate railroad systems, resources, and other goods plus services. One robber baron was Andrew Carnegie. Corporations were owned by a group of shareholders. Investors would have a dedication to fund the growth of corporations too. Corporations would be dictated by public shareholders, under them would be the Board of Directors, under them were the managers, and the managers control the employees. J. P. Morgan and Cornelius Vanderbilt had massive power. Some corporations dominated a product or service which would be a monopoly. John D. Rockefeller would make deals with railroads in growing his oil profits. Horizontal integration and vertical integration were tactics used by corporations in controlling profits and products. Trusts were used by John D. Rockefeller in order to escape state law preventing companies from owning stock of another company. The paradox is that many robber barons like Carnegie, Rockefeller, and Vanderbilt used cut throat tactics in their economic policies while investing in universities, museums, and libraries at the same time (which they felt would give the disadvantaged the chance to attain wealth). Social Darwinism is related to Charles Darwin’s Origin of the Species book. Social Darwinism means that wealth was one measure of one inherit value and those most fit are entitled to that wealth. Social Darwinism is evil since it promotes classism and it is overtly bigoted against the poor. With these monopolies growing, the government took action. The U.S. Senate created the ICC or the interstate Commerce Commission to oversee railroad operation. The Sherman Antitrust Act in 1890 was passed by the Senate to regulate trusts. It would be rarely enforced until the Progressive Age years later.



With this massive era of the Gilded Age, the workers fought back for economic justice heroically.  Business owners and workers struggles in the midst of conflicts and disagreements on how to move forward. Workers experienced heavy hardships during the Gilded Age. Many workers faced long hours, bad conditions, injuries, and even death from working accidents. Men, women, and children worked in factories. Families struggled to get child care or education for children. Later, states passed laws to ban child labor. Company towns were about business renting areas where workers would live. Corruption inspired the growth of labor union. Labor union fought for workers’ rights like collective bargaining. This was about benefits helping workers. They came after a strike. The National Trades Union was the first national labor union being founded in 1834. Many groups wanted higher wages and the 10 hour work day. Socialism grew too. Socialism believed in public control of property and income. German philosophers Karl Marx and Freiderich Engels promoted the ideas of socialism with their book entitled, The Communist Manifesto. It predicted that capitalism would end when workers would rise up to overturn it. Most Americans rejected Communism, but socialism was popular in many smaller circles back then and today.

Image result for Knights of LaborImage result for Haymarket Square strike

The Knights of Labor was created by Uriah Smith Stephen to defend labor rights. They even recruited African Americans. Stephens wanted a workers’ cooperative to replace capitalism. By 1885, the Knights of Labor had women and people of every race or ethnicity. It disappeared largely by the 1890’s. Samuel Gompers created the American Federation or the AFL in 1886. The AFL wanted union to protect crafts making workers. They wanted higher wages, great working conditions, and low working hours. The AFL excluded women since they falsely believed that women depressed wages. Many AFL excluded black workers when they had no explicit policy banning black people form joining. Strikes occurred in 1877 involving railroad workers. The Haymarket Square strike in 1886 in Chicago wanted an eight hour work day. Many people left the Knights of Labor afterwards. The Homestead Strike wanted higher wages and the Pullman strikes wanted a better cost of living and higher wages. Eugene V. Debs was a leader in that strike. Debs was arrested for being involved in the strike. Debs would be a socialist and help for form the IWW or the Industrial Workers of the World. The Gilded Age ironically helped to spread socialism and labor rights activists worldwide, because the corruption of robber barons were so overt that radical change would be necessary for justice to exist for workers. The Gilded Age saw more skyscrapers, more mass transit like cable cars being electric, trolley cars, and the first subway system in Boston by 1897. New York City had its subway system by 1904.

New Social Realities

America is based on diverse peoples representing their cultures. During the era after the Civil War, massive urbanization (or the rapid growth of cities) developed along with industrialization (or the growth of factories and railroads). There was an expansion of farming as well. This was facilitated by increased high levels of immigration. From 1865 to 1918, there was a historic, unprecedented plus diverse amount of immigrants who came into the United States of America. They came into America in the number of 27.5 million people. 89% of these immigrants or 24.4 million people came from Europe, 2.9 million from Britain, 2.2 million from Ireland, 2.1 million from Scandinavia, 3.8 million from Germany, 4.1 million from Italy, 7.8 million from Russia and other parts of eastern and central Europe. Another 1.7 million came from Canada. Many came from Africa and the Caribbean too. Most of these human beings came through the port of New York City, and from 1892, through the immigration station on Ellis Island. Many ethnic groups settled in different locations. New York City and other large cities of the East Coast became home to large Jewish, Irish, and Italian populations. Many Germans and Central Europeans moved into the Midwest. Some of them had jobs in industry and mining. At the same time, about one million French Canadians migrated from Quebec into New England. Immigrants came into America because of poverty, religious threats. They saw America as the “Promised Land” of milk and honey. Many wanted jobs, farmland, and had kin connections to those in America too. Many of them worked at factories, mines, and construction sites. Some found farming opportunities in the Plains states. Many immigrants were welcomed (other European immigrants weren't for a time) while Asian people experienced massive racism and discrimination. Many Chinese Americans constructed railroads in the West Coast, but were treated in a dismissive fashion unlike Western European immigrants. After massively racist, intense anti-Chinese agitation in the West, Congress passed the evil Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. It was signed into law by President Chester A. Arthur. It suspended Chinese immigration for 10 years and then it was renewed in 1892 and made banning Chinese immigration permanent in 1902. It was the first evil American law to prevent a specific ethnic group from immigrating into America. It was repealed by the Magnuson Act of December 17, 1943. Yet, even that law allowed for the continuation of the ban against ownership of property and businesses by the ethnic Chinese.  In many states, Chinese Americans (including US citizens) were denied property-ownership rights either by law or de facto until the Magnuson Act itself was fully repealed in 1965. Some immigrants stayed temporarily in the U.S. then returned home, often with savings that made them relatively prosperous. Most, however, permanently left their native lands and stayed in hope of finding a better life in the New World. This desire for freedom and prosperity led to the famous term, the American Dream.

In terms of the religion, the Third Great Awakening existed from the late 1850’s to the early 1900’s. It saw the growth of evangelical Protestantism from the late 1850’s to the early 1900’s. During this time, this movement promoted social activism and affected pietistic Protestant denominations. Many followers of this Awakening believed in the postmillennial theology that the Second Coming of Jesus Christ would come after humankind had reformed the whole earth. A major component was the Social Gospel Movement, which applied Christianity to social issues and gained its force from the Awakening, as did the worldwide missionary movement. New groupings emerged, such as the Holiness movement and Nazarene movements, and Christian Science. At the same time, the Catholic Church grew rapidly, with a base in the German, Irish, Polish, and Italian immigrant communities, and a leadership drawn from the Irish. The Catholics were largely working class and concentrated in the industrial cities and mining towns, where they built churches, parochial schools, and charitable institutions, as well as colleges. The Jewish community grew rapidly, especially from the new arrivals from Eastern Europe who settled chiefly in New York City. They avoided the Reform synagogues of the older German Jewish people and instead formed Orthodox and Conservative synagogues.

Race relations between 1877 and 1918 were horrible. Black Americans during this time lost many of their civil rights obtained via Reconstruction. Many African Americans suffered racial discrimination, racist lynching, violence, and anti-black racial riots. This led to many problems in the living conditions of many African Americans. The South expanded Jim Crow laws. These laws didn’t just deal with restricting voting (literacy tests, poll taxes, and grandfather clauses were used to deprive black people in the South to vote). Grandfather clauses didn’t want people to vote if their grandfathers didn’t vote before 1866. Since, many black people in the South were slaves before 1866, many black people weren’t allowed to vote. It meant separate, unequal restaurants, trains, pools, cemeteries, schools, and other facets of society. Many white people formed all white primaries to only allow whites to have a voice in elections. In 1896, Homer Plessy, an African American, was denied of his rights via the Supreme Court’s Plessy v. Ferguson decision. That decision upheld racial segregation via its sick “separate but equal” doctrine. The case came after Homer Plessy sat in a white section of a Louisiana train car. By the end of World War II, only 3 percent of African Americans had the right to vote. Black people in Louisiana went from 130,000 people voting in 1894 to only 1,300 people voting in 1904. Black Americans fought back too. Frederick Douglass lived during racial oppression, but told his allies to continue to agitate and fight for freedom by the late 1800’s. Black Americans created civil rights groups, women’s clubs, fraternal organizations, schools, colleges, and political organizations in fighting for our human rights back then. Many black people had diverse views on how to achieve equality (like Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois), but they agreed with the same goal (which is equality and justice for black people). Booker T. Washington was born a slave and became free. His legacy was part of educational opportunities for those of black African descent. He was right to advance education and vocational work for African Americans. He was right to promote land ownership. He was wrong to advance the principle that true equal rights must be based on previous preparation for it. Freedom is not based on a clock, but should be given immediate irrespectively of anything. He was also wrong to believe in a capitalist extremism and to promote the Atlanta Compromise since justice is not compromise, but liberation. You don’t compromise with your oppressor, but you defeat your oppression. Later in his life, Booker T. Washington would support efforts to end Jim Crow.

W.E. B. DuBois believed that political agitation and embracing a liberal arts education would cause equality for black people. DuBois is right that no accommodating of southern white racists is needed and he was right that black people should demand for immediate equality via political agitation. DuBois was wrong to advance the Talented Tenth principle or a select of bourgeois black people being made leaders of the black community. Leadership is egalitarian not possessed on a very few amount of people. We can all be leaders. DuBois is right to promote many progressive positions on housing, the economy, and on being anti-imperialist. Ida B. Wells also opposed lynching and racism. She was raised in Holly Springs, Mississippi. She knew both Frederick Douglass and WEB DuBois. She was one founde

Online dating isn't easy, and now we have the data to prove it.

A new study, published in the journal Science Advances Wednesday — which analyzed data from a pool of tens of thousands of online dating profiles in New York, Boston, Seattle, and Chicago — found that people consistently message potential mates who are out of their league.

Thus in the above video you see another version of the trip depicted in another video shared here. A British tourist travels from Portland to Chicago on the Empire Builder and most of the sound track are contemporary music and it sounded great. Of course, this one is more of a documentary with "YouTuuba" doing a lot of talking with regards to what we're seeing in his videos.

          Ride-Hailing Services Add To Traffic Congestion, Study Says      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
If there's one thing veteran Chicago taxicab driver Jay Khawas says he sees a lot of, it's cars with the familiar Uber and Lyft emblems. "Oh my God. Like, many, many," says Khawas. "They're everywhere." There certainly are more Uber and Lyft vehicles than taxicabs in Chicago and in most other big cities. Chicago, for example, limits the number of taxicab medallions, or vehicles licensed as taxis, to under 7,000. Meanwhile, the number of vehicles registered with the city for ride-hailing services topped 117,000 at the end of 2017, and city figures show that the number of "active" vehicles — those that provide four or more trips per month — at close to 70,000. Stopped at a light, Khawas points them out. There's an Uber in front of him, behind him and in the lane to his right. And he says he doesn't think it's just the sheer number of Ubers and Lyfts out there that are tying up traffic. He says he thinks they don't know the rules of the road and spend too much time looking at their phone

I am going to be on several panels that you all might be interested in hearing.

On Saturday I will be on a panel about Beatles Fan Clubs (this one is going to be a lot of fun!),   The White Album, and 2nd-3rd generation Beatles fans.     On Sunday at 6:00pm I will be doing a presentation about the history of the Official Beatles Fan Club.    I really hope people show up for these.   I guess that is my biggest nightmare is that I am there talking to an empty room.   


I will have copies of my book that I will be selling for $20.    These are the last copies of the book, so if you were wanting to get one, now is the time.    They won't be available at a later date.     Also -- mention that you are a blog reader and I will give you a FREE rare Beatles photo of your choice with each book.     How can you pass up a deal like that?


I hope to see you there.  And for those of you that can't 'make it, I will report back on Wednesday.

          NAR Reverts To Old Nonsensical Position On FSBO Debate      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I really thought we had put this issue to bed a year ago - the real cost or savings of for sale by owner - when some smart guys finally looked at the problem the correct way. For years the National Association of Realtors made outrageous claims about how a real estate agent could get 20 - 30% more for a house than a seller going the FSBO route. This claim was based on the simple observation that the average FSBO home sold for substantially less than the average realtor listed home, conveniently ignoring the fact that FSBO homes tend to be less valuable homes. Realtors then went around publicizing this misleading fact in an effort to get listings from FSBO sellers. Finally, last year a couple of PhD types looked at the cost of selling a home yourself correctly and actually adjusted for differences in the quality of the homes. Once they did this the advantage of using a realtor basically shrunk to about 5.5 - 6.0%, which is not coincidentally roughly the same as the real estate commission. I don't think it's coincidental because I think the seller negotiates less aggressively because the FSBO seller feels like they are saving on the commission. Well, despite the NAR acknowledging this excellent study by putting a summary of the findings on their Web site, they have now come back around full circle to their original position. Once again they are disseminating the fake news story on their Economists' Outlook Blog that the average FSBO seller is losing $60,000. Frankly, it's embarrassing. What's really strange though is that this blog presumably is written by economists and any halfway decent economist knows better than to misinterpret the data this way. So I went back and reread the post again and I suspect that the author, Amanda Riggs, exactly knows better than this but might have been coerced into writing this particular piece by someone higher up. I believe she may have intentionally put some clues in the post to warn us not to believe it's conclusion:
  • 66% of FSBO sales were detached single-family homes, compared to 81% of all homes sold.
  • 13% were mobile or manufactured homes, compared to 3% of all homes sold.
  • The median income of all FSBO sellers was $86,500 and for those who sold only through an agent was $102,900.
Then, right after talking about the difference in median prices between FSBO homes and agent sold homes she puts in this Note: Home sale prices vary according to many factors, including the type of home, location, a city’s cost of living, and for example, whether a home is sold at “arm’s length. Basically she's telling us to ignore what she just said. Maybe this post is a cry for help from the author. She's trapped in a building with a group of people who either don't understand how to look at data or are determined to misuse data to promote their own agenda. #FSBO #ForSaleByOwner #NAR #Realtors #RealEstateAgents Gary Lucido is the President of Lucid Realty, the Chicago area's full service discount real estate brokerage.

          $3.9B buyout of Tribune by Sinclair ends in acrimony      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

NEW YORK — The $3.9 billion buyout of Tribune Media by Sinclair collapsed Thursday, ending a bid to create a massive media juggernaut that could have rivaled the reach of Fox News.

Tribune Media Co. said Thursday that it is suing Sinclair for breach of contract and at least $1 billion in damages, according to its complaint .

Sinclair used "unnecessarily aggressive and protracted negotiations" with the Department of Justice and Federal Communications Commission over regulatory requirements, the Chicago company said, and it refused to sell the stations it needed to in order to gain regulatory approval.

Sinclair Broadcast Group wanted the Chicago company's 42 TV stations and had initially agreed to dump almost two dozen of its own to score approval by the FCC.

The media company, which has enjoyed the support of President Donald Trump, appeared to be cruising toward approval by U.S. regulators.

Last month, however, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said that he had "serious concerns" about the deal, saying that Sinclair might still be able to operate the stations "in practice, even if not in name."

That drew a rebuke from Trump.

"So sad and unfair that the FCC wouldn't approve the Sinclair Broadcast merger with Tribune," Trump tweeted. He said that allowing Sinclair to expand its reach would have led to a "much needed conservative voice by and for the people."

Sinclair operates 192 stations, runs 611 channels and operates in 89 U.S. markets. It would have been able to expand rapidly into numerous new markets with the Tribune acquisition.

Sinclair has become a significant outlet for conservative views.

It was admonished by media watchdogs in April after Deadspin, a sports news site, pieced together clips of dozens of TV anchors for Sinclair reading from the same script, which warned viewers about "biased and false news" from other media outlets.

Sinclair has defended the decision to have its anchors read from the same script across the country as a way to distinguish its news shows from unreliable stories on social media.

The Maryland company said Thursday in a prepared statement that the Tribune lawsuit is "entirely without merit."

"We unequivocally stand by our position that we did not mislead the FCC with respect to the transaction or act in any way other than with complete candor and transparency," said CEO Chris Ripley.

Free media advocacy groups cheered the demise of the deal.

Public Knowledge, an advocacy group that has been critical of the FCC under Pai, has been against a tie up between Sinclair and Tribune from the start.

"While what has apparently killed this deal was Sinclair's pattern of deception at the FCC — a fact that should affect its future dealings at the Commission — the deal was bad on its own merits, and this latest development is good for consumers," said Phillip Berenbroick, senior policy counsel at the organization. "Broadcasters are supposed to serve their local communities. This deal would have contributed to the trend where 'local' news and 'local' programming is created or scripted out of town."

          Colt Cabana está processando CM Punk      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Ao que parece a amizade entre Colt Cabana e CM Punk não existe mais. Depois de participarem e ganharem um processo de difamação dois meses atrás, Colt Cabana e CM Punk estão agora em lados opostos, e irão brigar na justiça. Cabana está processando CM Punk por quebra de contrato e fraude.

Cabana e Punk eram amigos desde os seus tempos do cenário independente do pro-wrestling de Chicago.

A ação da Cabana contesta que Punk prometeu ajudá-lo com as contas legais que eles acumularam lutando contra a ação de difamação que ocorreu meses atrás. Cabana afirma que Punk disse a ele em um texto que pagaria todas as contas e taxas do processo.

Ao que parece, Punk não cumpriu essa promessa, deixando Cabana com contas legais não pagas, totalizando US$ 513.736, de acordo com o processo.

Punk pediu à Cabana para pagar metade das taxas legais, que chegam a US$ 256.868, e disse: “Você está por sua conta”. Cabana está pedindo US$ 200.000 em danos, mais US$ 1 milhão em danos punitivos ou exemplares.

O processo alega que “Brooks (CM Punk) agiu com fraude, maldade e opressão em relação a Colton, com a intenção deliberada de causar danos a Colton (Colt Cabana)”.

Cabana é criador do podcast “The Art of Wrestling”, onde ele discute questões sobre wrestling, além de ter outros lutadores no programa como convidados.

Punk, foi convidado de Cabana em um episódio, onde ele abordou várias questões que ele teve durante o seu tempo na WWE, principalmente sobre o seu tratamento médico.

Essas acusações levaram o Dr. Chris Amann, médico da WWE, a processar Punk e Cabana em janeiro de 2015. O advogado de Amann queria que Colton removesse todo o conteúdo do podcast de seu site.

Dois meses atrás, Cabana e Punk venceram a ação de difamação apresentada por Amann.

          A secret millionaire with an MBA and a $1 million home in Brooklyn spends her days collecting cans for $20 at a time      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

can collector

  • The New York Post on Wednesday published a profile of Lisa Fiekowski, a Brooklyn millionaire who collects cans as a hobby.
  • Fiekowski owns more than $8 million worth of real estate around New York City and has an MBA from the University of Chicago, the Post said.
  • She says it's a good way to keep active, but her neighbors and family aren't pleased about it. 

Lisa Fiekowski is a secret millionaire with an intriguing exercise routine: collecting trash.

The New York Post on Wednesday published a profile of Fiekowski, a 60-something resident of Brooklyn's upscale Prospect Heights neighborhood.

Fiekowski owns more than $8 million worth of properties around New York City, including a $1 million co-op next to Prospect Park, the Post said, citing records. But at least one of her investments is uninhabitable, thanks partially to her unusual hobby — the Post reported that she had packed one residency with an old microwave, an umbrella, toys, carpets, and other trash.

Fiekowski has been collecting cans for about a decade, telling the Post she generates $20 to $30 for a few hours of work. She said she enjoys it because she can keep active, talk to her neighbors, and keep her area clean.

"Mostly, it's physical activity," she told the Post.

Meanwhile, Fiekowski has an MBA from the University of Chicago, and her husband makes about $180,000 a year, the Post said. She's worked as a marketing analyst and a stockbroker, and her parents were high-ranking economists in the US government.

"My family thinks this whole thing is horrible, but I think it's so funny," she said.

But while her family may not be pleased with how she chooses to spend her days, Fiekowski defends her hobby. She said the outrage around it just showed how judgmental New Yorkers have become.

"I'm an old-fashioned bohemian," Fiekowski told the Post. "To me, what's sad is New York used to have acceptance of people being eccentric, but now it's like, 'Heaven forbid!'"

Last month, the report says, the city towed Fiekowski's 1993 Toyota Camry, which is also filled with junk, dented, and covered in graffiti. But Fiekowski said she had parked it legally.

"People were so upset that this terrible car was in the neighborhood," Fiekowski said. "It shows you how intolerant that area is."

Fiekowski is hardly the first ultrawealthy person to maintain a frugal lifestyle. Ingvar Kamprad, the billionaire founder of Ikea, drove the same Volvo for two decades and preferred to fly coach, Business Insider's Tanza Loudenback previously reported.
