Princeton Scientific Study: America is No Longer a Democracy; It’s Now an Oligarchy | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it


"A scientific study done at Princeton University indicates that the United States is no longer a Democracy. The country has now morphed into an Oligarchy."


Community Village's insight:


Has the U.S. every been ruled by 'the people'?


The U.S. has never been a democracy. The U.S. is a republic with democratic ideals. 


Dr. Cornel West has been saying that the U.S. is a plutocracy and an oligarchy ever since I started listening to him on Smiley & West.

U.S. Poultry Workers at Risk

U.S. Poultry Workers at Risk | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it


"Poultry processing, an industry where Latinos are disproportionately employed ,is designed to maximize production of ready-to-cook chicken in a short amount of time in the poultry processing industry. Under current regulations, production lines can move at a rate of 140 birds per minute. Meat and poultry workers often make 20,000 or more cuts a day on processing lines and are assigned specific tasks that they repeat at rapid speed for their entire shifts, including slaughtering, sorting, cleaning, inspecting, trimming, cutting, and packaging. Most of this work is performed standing up. As a result, musculoskeletal injuries to the hands, wrists, and arms, including carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as the back are perceived to be very common. In addition to line speed, other hazardous conditions in poultry processing plants contribute to injuries like knife cuts and dermatological and respiratory illnesses


There are no set of mandatory guidelines to protect the health of poultry workers. The U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) does not regulate line speeds or enforce safety rules tailored for the unique dangers of poultry plants."

The map of white people | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it


The map of white people was not on the Internet, so I made one. Conversely, it is a map of people of colour.


The map (click on it to enlarge) uses four colours:

  • dark blue: 75% to 100% white
  • medium blue: 50% to 75% white
  • light blue: 25% to 50% white
  • grey: 0% to 25% white

So:

  • majority POC: grey and light blue
  • majority white: medium and dark blue
  • multiracial: light and medium blue

Instead of apprehending them, he sexually assaulted the woman and her 14-year-old daughter, slashed the mother's wrists, and tried to break the teenager's neck. Then he abducted the other daughter and tied her up in his home before returning to finish his shift."

How Children’s Books Fuel Mascot Stereotypes - COLORLINES

How Children’s Books Fuel Mascot Stereotypes - COLORLINES | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it


"This brings me to the issue of how we frame diversity. I want to ask you whether you think it’s helpful to refer to Natives as people of color—or if this ultimately obscures political status. 
It absolutely works against our best interest to be placed in the framework of people of color. White children’s authors, for example, write about American Indians and civil rights. And my response is that it’s not about civil rights, it’s about treaty rights. And that’s an encapsulation of what goes wrong when you use a civil rights framework. To start with, people don’t know that we’re sovereign nations, that we have a political status in the United States, as opposed to a racial, cultural or ethnic one. So it’s easy to see why people fall into that multicultural framework. But it’s really not culture—it’s really politics. When people in education start developing these frameworks and chart out the ways that people of color have a history in the United States, they’ll slot us in there, too. But that collapses, erases and obscures our distinct political designation in the United States."
