Failure to remove Sheriff Rand shows institutional racism alive and well, vice mayor says
“You’ve got people complaining about naming a street after the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, but we have a bigot sitting in a chair in office. That’s why the street renaming is so important,” Dancy said. “We need diversity, we need unity. Because we have people sitting in positions that don’t offer that. They offer bigotry, they offer hate. Hate in their heart.” https://www.mlive.com/news/jackson/2019/02/failure-to-remove-sheriff-rand-shows-institutional-racism-alive-and-well-vice-mayor-says.html

Review of 900 yearbooks finds blatant racism

Blackface, KKK hoods and mock lynchings: Review of 900 yearbooks finds blatant racism In one of the most extensive searches of college yearbooks ever, we found blackface and Ku Klux Klan photos like Ralph Northam's far beyond Virginia. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, a stunning number of colleges and university yearbooks published images of blatant racism on campus, the USA TODAY Network found in a review of 900 publications at 120 schools across the country.
At Cornell University in New York, three fraternity members are listed in the 1980 yearbook as “Ku,” “Klux” and “Klan.” For their 1971 yearbook picture, a dozen University of Virginia fraternity members, some armed, wore dark cloaks and hoods while peering up at a lynched mannequin in blackface. In one of the most striking images – from the 1981 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign yearbook – a black man is smiling and holding a beer while posing with three people in full KKK regalia.

How racist history books spurred the black history education of today

How racist history books spurred the black history education of today
One Harvard researcher described Webster's text as "distressingly typical" of the time. Because it was written three decades before the end of the Civil War, the book only described slavery in the context of policy and completely ignored the abolitionist movement. That decision wasn’t just an oversight. Webster really believed that Africans had "no history" and — you can see this from his writings — that history was centered on European colonizers and politicians. https://www.wcpo.com/news/national/how-racist-history-books-spurred-the-black-history-education-of-today

The league wouldn't have settled if truth wasn't on Kaps side, but will ...

I've been asked over and over about the settlement, and who won, and who lost and what it means. With details still so scarce – and perhaps, always so, given the high stakes and confidentiality agreements – and so few individuals truly in the know, I'd caution against anyone throwing figures at a wall and guessing at what the NFL paid to try to put this uncomfortable, unfortunate and easily-avoidable era of football labor history to bed. I'd steer clear of anyone trying to couch it in terms of a financial victory or defeat.
So I won't be going there.
But I do believe there are still some conclusions that can be drawn by the way in which this case finally came to a resolution. As the days have gone by, some thoughts have resonated. And, sadly, I can't quite call anyone a winner in the way in which we usually associate the word with sports.
Kaepernick, undoubtedly, got the league's attention. He forced its massive power structure to deal with him and, for the fir…

Florida sixth grader arrested after not standing for Pledge of Allegiance

LAKELAND, Fla (CNN) - An 11-year-old student in Florida has been arrested following an argument with a substitute teacher over his refusal to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance.
A sixth grader at Lawton Chiles Middle Academy was arrested and taken to a juvenile detention center, charged with disrupting a school function and resisting arrest without violence.
It's a decision that's not sitting well with the student's mother, Dhakira Talbot, who says her son is in gifted classes and has been bullied at the school before.
"I'm upset, I'm angry, I'm hurt. Moreso for my son,” said Talbot. “My son has never been through anything like this, and I feel they should've handled this differently."

LeBron James on Colin Kaepernick: 'I stand with Kap, I kneel with Kap'

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — LeBron James praised Colin Kaepernick a day after the quarterback and Kaepernick's former teammate Eric Reid settled their joint collusion grievance with the NFL.

“I hope it’s a helluva lot of money that could set not only him up but set his family up, set his grandkids up for the rest of their lives," James said Saturday during the NBA’s All-Star weekend. “And I hope that the word of what he did will live on throughout American history but also world history because it’s important for all of us, not only the African Americans but for everybody that wants to stand up for something that’s more important than them."
