Re: The Despicable Act of Paying for Prisoners!

Your are correct. I have had several arguments with certain Black people that have the belief that they don't need to know anything about Black history, and especially anything about African history or Africa at all. It's not JUST a Black phenomenon, that holds true to EVERYONE. Look how soon Americans "forget" the job-killing, economy crippling policies of the prior administration or the one before that, etc. But, it IS or SHOULD BE more of an interest or concern for African Americans and...

I can understand Roland Martin's sentiment here. However, I don't think he quite hit the mark with his explanation which in my opinion shows some lack of research on this issue before presenting his argument. What I agree with: The Confederacy was in fact not only a terrorist organization but committed sedition and used the arguement of states rights over the Constitution and the Federal government. Putting this into context of today, we know that the Tea Party and their ranks use many of...

CONFEDERATE HISTORY IS SUPREMACY HISTORY BY JULIANNE MALVEAUX Last week, Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell proclaimed April Confederate History Month in his state. In fact he proclaimed the date on April 7, which is the same day in 1865 that Confederate general Robert E. Lee began to negotiate the terms of surrender with United States General Ulysses S. Grant. In some states, this day is considered Confederate Memorial Day, and Virginia is not alone is celebrating “Confederate History Month”.

This is where the writers thesis and logic beings to fall apart. The decriminalization of drugs is not the same as advocating for a new market opportunity for the Walmart-ificaton of weed (a real argument and concern within advocacy groups). The authors concerns are more centralized with the market based capitalist system (not my characterization, but the authors description) than than any particular by product of decriminalization. Furthermore, the data on the decriminalization of narcotics...
