Some of you may have seen this article, but I thought I would throw it into the mix from the site Race Traitor . The White Anti-Racist Is an Oxymoron: An Open Letter to "White Anti-Racists" By Tamara K. Nopper I received an annoying e-mail about white people and their struggle to do anti-racist work. I keep reading and hearing white people talk about their struggle to do anti-racist organizing, and frankly it gets on my nerves. So I am writing this open letter to white people who engage in...

I can certainly empathize. My mother has always been a Christian since I was born (she grew up in a moderate church). But, she always used to be a very open and somewhat liberal Christian. I even found her reading books about other religions and even Christian Astrology. But, 2 years ago, she broke her leg and found herself houseridden for several months and dependent upon other people (which was a very humbling and even humiliating experience for my mother because she's always been a very...

Toussaint. What you fail to consider is that everything is relative. Lets say that an area has a million residents and normative levels of population growth. Lets now say that there is little job growth, despite a growth in population. The net effect of that is that the economic health of the region is deteriorating, despite not losing any jobs, but because they are not gaining any jobs. This is why despite job growth under the Bush administration, his tenure is considered a poor performance...

Re: The Spiritual Problem With Modernist Art

Being ridiculed(provoked) makes one vulnerable. Are we required to live by higher standards/ethics, and 'take the high road' when we are provoked by these artists? Should artists be held accountable for taking advantage of ART and PEOPLE by being insensitive? The youth are being taken advantage of by rap music (this I hate to admit). Tobacco commercials, beer commercials, anti-religous propaganda...etc. All examples of people being taken advantage of by the provocative enticements of art.

Slurs often adopted by those they insult Racial slurs such as "spic," "dago" and "mick" still are considered offensive by many people of Hispanic, Italian and Irish descent.

Toussaint, a few of your assumptions are flawed. For one, the assumption that free-market economies are free. This may be more or less true, but for us it's getting less and less true with each passing year. Government de-regulation, government interference, corporate collusion and monopolistic practices are limiting that free-market more and more over time. The result is less choice, not more. Good cases in point are the lack of enforcement of anti-trust laws that are on the books and the...

It's women's fault that some Black men refuse to acknowledge and be responsible for the children that they father. And ultimately it's women's fault that a disproportionate number of Black men are not applying to colleges. All of these issues are the Black women's...

I think what is happening is that now that the Supreme Court has a more favorable split on the abortion issue (after Bush appointed the last two justices) anti-choice folks are trying to force the issue by creating these (currently) unconstitutional laws. They want the laws brought before the Supreme Court so that Roe v. Wade can be reconsidered.
