Re: Battling Campus Racism-Leaders Demand Action

Empty Purnata ·
Yes, that's why I was talking about Progressivism . Progressivism is not Democrat, Republican or Independent, or Liberal or Conservative. It's about progress (the root word). I was saying that campuses should promote social progressivism because progressivism support social justice and anti-racism. Personally, I don't believe in the liberal/conservative and Democratic/Republican dichotomy. I believe they are both corporate juggernauts that do whatever benefits their own wallets the most,...

My sister is a 20 elementary/primary school teacher. She has 2 Master's degrees and is in a PHD program. She tells me that while she supports accountability in general and testing in specific, her two complaints about NCLB testing is that 1) schools are teaching to the test, when they are not testing FROM the actual test. This is "teaching" child what to think not how to think. 2) schools' entire curricula and resources are test directed, very little resources are being spent on music, Phys...

Re: MBM: WHERE'S THE UNIFICATION?

Um, it may have something to do with the fact that you are in the Issues/Politics forum? Politics, much like religion and racial matters are very controversial subjects. You will find people everywhere, not just Blacks in particular, who are divided on these issues. Therefore, trying to get members on the board to reach some sort of unified concensus is unrealistic, in my opinion. However, I think what you are noticing, as a new member, is an ongoing, rather hostile and verbally explicit...

This is definitely beginning. As individuals we can refuse to be consumers of these images. I simply don't watch TV (no cable). Another form of activism is using your dollars to purchase the work of people we like. For those who have never heard Zap Mama, these sistas are INCREDIBLE. Their basic sound is like Bobby Mcferrin goes back to the Motherland. Pure vocal ensemble. Especially recommend Adventures in Afropea Vol. I, Sabsylma, and Ancestry in Progress.

Re: Conservative Whites vs. Liberal Whites

I think conservative whites are worse. Liberal whites tend to be more plyable. Conservatives by their very nature tend to have a stick-in-the-mud attitude toward everything. They generaly can't be reasoned with (probably because they lack the ability to reason). This isn't unique to white conservatives though. Black conservatives are just as bad (reference any post by Constructive Feedback). But they are few and far between because the whole idea of conservativism is to preserve something.

Re: Reparations v. Eliminating Race Specific Claims

ricardomath ·
It seems to me that any example of progress can be use as an arguement that racism is dead, and we now live in a color-blind society. I see such arguements being made all the time right now, against Afirmative Action or whatever, even without a penny of reparations being made. Of course, some people would add reperations to their long list of reasons that they already have. There's nothing special about a supposed backlash resulting from reperations. Every step forward does that.

One thing to note, though, is how markedly different African-Americans are regarded when compared to Jews and Japanese-Americans. Though made out of fear or other such emotions, they are hardly misplaced. There is plenty of reasons to have those "fears"/emotions. They just don't make logical sense because, legally, there really is no reason to believe that it would go down that way (i.e. written in statutes), regardless of animosity Whites, even White legislators, etc. may hold.

That is so true. The main problem that I have with this Free Market Globalism [besides the fact that it is all theory] is that it discounts the very real suffering of very real people, without making no allowances or better taking no measures to elevate the suffering. It assumes that all parties are equal players in the game, when in fact, very few are players [they are called owners], all the rest are the played.

Re: College "Education" Is BS

Pace Tua ·
Have to agree with you on this one, EP. For the most part, colleges and universities are institutions of conformity. I say this with some insight, having worked at UCSF in administration for eleven years. In general, colleges and universities are a mirror of the values of society. And in this society, the reflection is capitalism and power. For US colleges and universities, government funding, corporate funding, private grants, and alumnae contributions, pretty much spell status quo.

Black people are not merely interested in the securing the rights of immigrants when we hold the mantle of social injustice. And making such a statement demonstrates a severely limited understanding of the fight against global injustice. Black people hold this mantle because we know that combating WHITE SUPREMACY is a 24-hr., 365-day respoonsibility. Black people in America and throughout the diaspora would probably love just for ONE day to not have to think about combating social injustice.
