Cultural Loss - Impact on Native American Health | Unnatural Causes | Documentary

Cultural Loss - Impact on Native American Health | Unnatural Causes | Documentary | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"Dr. Donald Warne talks about how cultural loss impacts the health of Native American tribes in Arizona. The damming of rivers plunged local tribes into poverty, dependence and ultimately poor health. Deprived of their language, land, livelihood and traditions, many Native Americans have developed a fatalistic view about diseases like diabetes.”

Migration is Beautiful

Migration is Beautiful | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it


"Artist and co-founder of CultureStrike, Favianna Rodriguez, created the “Migration is Beautiful” butterfly image. “The butterfly symbol was not my idea. Immigrant rights activists have seen the butterfly as a symbol of fluid and peaceful migration for generations. To me, the monarch butterfly represents the dignity and resilience of migrants, and the right that all living beings have to move freely. I believe that we shouldn’t allow our identity to be defined only by our suffering, nor by the actions that others have taken to devalue our families and our labor — rather, let us celebrate our beauty, pride, and resilience in the face of inequality and injustice.”

A Ferguson Youth Led Summit (Ferguson Conversations)


"Local student leaders from the Ferguson Youth Initiative came up with the idea to hold a summit to talk about how to make change in the aftermath of the tragedy their community has experienced. In late September, young people gathered at Florissant Valley Community College just miles from where Michael Brown was shot. Joined by community members and educators, the group talked about how the relationship between youth and the police of Ferguson needs to change, and what activities are needed in their town."

Drop the I-Word: Victory for Advocates, Associated Press Stops Using Phrase "Illegal Immigrant"

Drop the I-Word: Victory for Advocates, Associated Press Stops Using Phrase "Illegal Immigrant" | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it


The Associated Press has dropped the phrase "illegal immigrant" from its popular stylebook, a move welcomed by immigrant advocates who argue the term is a dehumanizing slur. The influential AP Stylebook is the definitive guide for reporters and editors both within the news cooperative and beyond. We’re joined by Rinku Sen, publisher of Colorlines.com and president of the Applied Research Center, which launched the the "Drop the I-Word" campaign in 2010 in order to remove the term "illegals" from everyday use and public discourse.

Public Policy and Blaming Poor Black Communities For Their Own Poverty [VIDEO]

Public Policy and Blaming Poor Black Communities For Their Own Poverty [VIDEO] | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
On the 50th anniversary of the Moynihan Report (The Negro Family: The Case For National Action), john a. powell of the Haas Institute discusses the economic and political struggles faced by black communities today
Community Village Sites's insight:


Powell explains:


  • Segregation was [and is] about separating access to opportunity. 
  • The War on Drugs is really a war on Black people.
  • We may have a plutocracy now. Rule by the rich.
  • White people don't see Black people as being part of the country, as being legitimate members. 
  • We bailed out banks, and GM with billions of dollars, but we did not bail out Detroit to help the African-Americans who live there.

Jessica Hernandez’s Autopsy Contradicts Police Report

Jessica Hernandez’s Autopsy Contradicts Police Report | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it


by Xena


We previously reported on the death of 17-year old Jessica Hernandez. Jessica was killed on January 26, 2015 in Denver, Colorado. Authorities said Jessica was in a stolen vehicle and tried running over one of the officers, striking him on the leg, which led to that and another officer firing their guns.


A witness, 16-year old Trina Diaz, who was in the passenger’s seat during the incident, stated that the officers were standing next to the car when they fired, and that the car hit the officer only after Jessica was struck, which veered the car in his direction, pinning his leg between the car and a fence.


The coroner’s report shows that Jessica was shot twice to her left side; once to the chest where the bullet went through her heart and both lungs. The coroner determined that none of the shots were fired at close range. Jessica also had bruises and abrasions to her face, torso and neck.

Hi all! I recently wrote this article in Truth Out "Is A Safe And Legal Immigration System Possible?" featuring stories and background from Guest. Please give it a read and spread the word, we only have two weeks left to raise what we need to make Guest happen!Thank you, as always, for your support,LVD
Community Village Sites's insight:


A border activist said "You are either a worker or a guest. You don't have a guest in your house, then ask them to wash your dishes."


During enslavement the workers were taken care of, although only like property, and only when not being beaten and raped.


Now that enslavement is over by law, the U.S. doesn't want agricultural workers to even have citizenship.

OPINION: Shonda Rhimes Offers a New Word for "Diversity" — Let's Start Using It

OPINION: Shonda Rhimes Offers a New Word for "Diversity" — Let's Start Using It | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it


Once a term to describe the laudable aim of ensuring equal representation, “diversity” has devolved into a trite talking point.


It’s an issue that Shonda Rhimes, the mastermind behind television hits such as Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy and How To Get Away With Murder, touched on while accepting an award at the Human Rights Campaign’s gala event in Los Angeles last weekend. In her speech, Rhimes said she’s tired of the way “diversity” is understood by most people.

Police Officers in Mississippi Town Are Now Required to Take 2 hour Spanish Class

Police Officers in Mississippi Town Are Now Required to Take 2 hour Spanish Class | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it


By Cindy Rodriguez


“The purpose of this program is for our officers to learn basic commands,” said Jackson Police Department Police Chief Lee Vance,.

“We’re not looking to make anybody fluent,” Vance added.


According to Fox News Latino, the two-hour Spanish class is designed for those who have no prior knowledge of the language and is mandatory for all officers.


A super helpful skill that will come in handy if an officer encounters a Spanish native speaker from anything to a traffic violation to more serious matters.


Latinos have been drawn to Mississippi the past few decades because of the state’s burgeoning chicken processing industry, according to Fox News Latino. Jackson, the state’s capital and its largest city, has a population of about 200,000 – roughly 2 percent of whom are Latino, according to the latest U.S. Census data.
