    The Washington Post's National Security ^ | October 6, 2015 | Sari Horwitz
    The Justice Department is set to release about 6,000 inmates early from prison — the largest one-time release of federal prisoners — in an effort to reduce overcrowding and provide relief to drug offenders who received harsh sentences over the past three decades. The inmates from federal prisons nationwide will be set free by the department’s Bureau of Prisons between Oct. 30 and Nov. 2. Most of them will go to halfway houses and home confinement before being put on supervised release. The early release follows action by the U.S. Sentencing Commission — an independent agency that sets sentencing policies...

    The Hill ^ | October 5, 2015 | Mark Hensch
    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Monday said white Americans are often blind to the injustices that black people face when dealing with police. “Many white people are not sensitive to the kind of abuse that African Americans, especially younger African Americans, receive at the hands of police officers and police departments,” Sanders said, according to Ebony. “I think for most whites their experience with the police has been good or neutral because they don’t interact with the police as much as those in the black community,” he said. “One of the ongoing crises in America is institutional racism,” the 2016...

    Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has issued a second forceful warning for black ministers in Christian churches who refuse to support his "Justice, or Else!" movement after he called for exercising the Quran's law of retaliation against whites and the government during an address at a Miami church in July. In a series of interview videos posted to his Facebook page, after which he solicits donations and support for his upcoming gathering on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., Oct. 10, Farrakhan says the ministers who have closed their doors to him are failing their communities and him.

    The Washington Post's The Fix ^ | October 3, 2015 | Janell Ross
    There’s a kind of narrative that tends to develop about every candidate for president. Donald Trump is a braggart willing to mercilessly criticize anyone who dares to criticize him. Ben Carson’s patrician, maybe even laconic public speaking style camouflages his controversial -- even incendiary -- ideas. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush is a well-funded and cerebral but socially awkward WASP. And Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), the boy wonder, has purchased real estate in the safest and most carefully staged campaign zip codes, biding his time for when Trump flames out. You’ll note that beyond perhaps Trump, not one of the...

    Was he a Half-White Supremacist? According to the LA Times, Chris Harper Mercer, the Oregon killer, was a "White Supremacist". One slight problem. Mercer identified as multi-racial. His mother was black. He doesn't seem to have even known his father. He identified with black TV killer Vester Lee Flanagan. This doesn't seem to have stopped the media with George Zimmerman who was labeled a white Hispanic, so maybe Chris Harper Mercer was a white Black? Was he a Half-White Supremacist? I'm not an expert on "White Supremacism", but being half-black and then shooting a bunch of white Christians would make...

    There are plenty of gun control laws in America, but the President isn't enforcing them. Maybe that's because the illegal guns are used by blacks to kill blacks. After the mass shooting at a community college in Oregon, President Barack Obama once again took the opportunity to lecture us Americans with righteous indignation about guns in America. “Somehow this has become routine. The reporting is routine. My response here at this podium ends up being routine. The conversation in the aftermath of it. We’ve become numb to this.” Chris Harper Mercer, a 26-year old white man, killed 10 people and...

    As Black Lives Matters protesters gear up for another a protest rally -- this time at the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon this weekend, debate has grown on social forums over when and if arrests should be made. As opposed to legal action taken in Bloomington over a Mall of America protest last winter, thus far St. Paul has arrested or charged no one during Black Lives Matter marches across the city. Permit-free rallies clogging street corners along University Avenue and at the Minnesota State Fair have been met with a quiet police presence, coordinating traffic and little else. Following a...

    California Sen. Holly Mitchell (D) connects the lack of racial diversity in Silicon Valley with racially motivated “math misplacement.”She claims middle-school algebra teachers are holding back black and Latino kids from advancing to ninth-grade geometry, even though they are doing just as well as white kids who are getting a grade of “B” or better, and are meeting or exceeding state standard assessments.However, the study that Mitchell and others supporting her effort cite as proof of their position also shows the real problem is actually with middle-school algebra teachers. Many of them just aren’t very good at their jobs.The...

    Jeb Bush’s recent comments in South Carolina about Democrats getting black people to vote for them by promising them “free stuff” during election season is a powerful reminder that a leading Republican presidential candidate is woefully ignorant about contemporary race relations and the history that’s shaped the racial-justice struggle. Ironically, the former governor of Florida’s statement echoed Mitt Romney’s infamous remarks about the 47 percent of Americans who longed for government handouts, said while discussing minority-voter outreach and the Republican Party. During an interview with Fox News Sunday, Bush doubled down on his comments. “We need to make our case...

    Will Black Lives Matter go the way of the Occupy movement, pushed into self-inflicted irrelevance? You remember Occupy. That movement galvanized attention to economic inequality four years ago, only to shrivel from its allergy to the kind of structure and hierarchy needed for an enduring leadership and agenda. Mentioning it in the same breath as Black Lives surely will anger admirers of the latter, given the good it has done by splashing the face of white America with the icy reality of police oppression in too many communities of color. Some Black Lives members issued a 10-point policing plan, many...

Our message is one that is uplifting — that says you can achieve earned success.” There it is! If you let people talk long enough, the true self will always be revealed....

Protesters told the station that the marathon is a good place to cause peaceful disruption. Some who plan on running the race said on Facebook that they were angered by the planned protest, saying it might lead to violent encounters. The protest is organized for Oct. 4 at a park about half a mile from the race's finish...

Asked at a Harvard University forum about supporting reparations, he said: "Would I? Very much so. Not just African Americans. We ourselves didn't own slaves, but we -- me -- are rich and privileged because of the torture of blacks for centuries. And yes we own them reparations," said Chomsky, the Institute Professor of Linguistics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. JFK Jr. Forum...

He cited a recent poll from the firm SurveyUSA that showed him getting support from 25 percent of black respondents in a match-up against Democratic front-runner...

Courses of instruction in the schools, academic rigor, codes of dress, rules regarding unceasing obscenity, all must be set to suit them, as must be examinations for promotion in fire departments, the military and police forces. Blacks must be admitted to universities for which they are not remotely qualified where departments of...

The argument is made that the problems encountered by many black Americans are rooted in white racism, greed and income inequality. They are able to get away with these untruths because most people believe that what is seen today has always been. A bit of history would belie such a vision.

    It is safe to say that virtually all political professionals think Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is doomed. The odds of him winning the Republican nomination are long and the odds of him winning the general election are nonexistent, they say. The key reason is that Trump’s campaign is based on alienating Latinos, a large and fast-growing voter bloc, by supporting the deportation of 11 million undocumented immigrants and building a wall along the border with Mexico to prevent further emigration. If the eventual Republican nominee needs 47 per cent of the Latino vote to win the general election — the...

    A Survey USA poll released Friday shows that 25% of black respondents said they would vote for Trump over Clinton. According to The American Mirror Trump would more than double the best result for a Republican in modern American history… Looking at the last 10 presidential election cycles, the highest black vote share for a Republican was 12% for Bob Dole in 1996. Blacks today make up 22% of the Democratic vote. If Democrats lost 25% of the black vote they would lose Virginia, Florida, Ohio and North Carolina.

    Things are getting bloody in America’s cities. Homicide rates are spiking in many U.S. cities. There are different factors that are contributing to the violence, one of them being stringent anti-gun laws, which keep law-abiding citizens disarmed and vulnerable while the criminal element’s access remains unmolested. Yet, The New York Times reported that one of the demographics driving the spike in murder rates isn’t out of the ordinary. It’s young men relying on violence to settle disputes: Cities across the nation are seeing a startling rise in murders after years of declines, and few places have witnessed a shift...
