Neo-Nazis Trying to Take Over North Dakota Town Sent Running by Native American and Anti-Fascist Activists

Neo-Nazis Trying to Take Over North Dakota Town Sent Running by Native American and Anti-Fascist Activists | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"In an update to the story we ran yesterday on the town of Leith, North Dakota being taken over by Neo-Nazi racists, Michael Pugliese tells us from the ground that “Lakota, Dakota, Anishinabe, Apache, African, Irish, German, Norwegian, Spanish, and other anti-racist individuals stood together to fight against the attempted nazi takeover of Leith, North Dakota.”

Community Village Sites's insight:


And here is a CNN interview of a family in the town. 


and this irony:
“Dakota” is a word that means “ally” and is likely derived from the Oceti Ŝakowiŋ (the Seven Council Fires) - or main political units - of the Dakota people (sometimes referred to as the Sioux)" -The Dakota People

Africa Thinking - Tall N Curly™

Africa Thinking - Tall N Curly™ | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest StumbleUpon Tumblr E-mailA couple of weeks ago, I started a series of drawings called “Ladies of the world” and posted them on my (new) second Instagram account. I only created three ladies so far (Polynesian, Indian and Japanese) but I will definitely create many more. Three days ago, I was working on the fourth one, a black lady from Africa (I started with an Ethiopian in mind) and trying to think of something graphic to do with her hair. For some reason, I drew it in the shape of the map of Africa, and from there,

Harvard's incoming freshman class is one-third legacy—here's why that's a problem :: CNBC

Harvard's incoming freshman class is one-third legacy—here's why that's a problem :: CNBC | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"Top schools now have record low admission rates, but only some students have to worry about what that means for their chances. Legacy admissions, at elite institutions especially, put a select few at a distinct advantage.

"Harvard's incoming class of 2021 is made up of over 29 percent legacy students, reports The Harvard Crimson. Last year's applicants who had Harvard in their blood were three times more likely to get into the school than those without.

"The case is the same at Stanford. In fact, across the top 30 schools in the U.S., one review from 2011 discussed in the Washington Post found that children of alumni "had a 45 percent greater chance of admission" than other applicants."

 

"Legacy students tend to be wealthy and white, students who, as a group, are already disproportionately represented at college. The New York Times found that, at five Ivy League schools, Dartmouth, Princeton, Yale, Penn and Brown, as well as 33 other colleges, there are more students from families in the top one percent than from the entire bottom 60 percent."

Should Texas Residents Know the Chemicals They're Breathing After the Arkema Plant Explosion?

Should Texas Residents Know the Chemicals They're Breathing After the Arkema Plant Explosion? | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
Hurricane Harvey has been downgraded from a Category 4 hurricane to a tropical depression as it moves over Louisiana and into Mississippi. Texas officials say at least 44 people were killed by the storm and nearly 100,000 homes are damaged by flooding. This comes as a chemical plant about 25 miles northeast of Houston, in Crosby, was rocked by two explosions early Thursday morning. The facility produces highly volatile chemicals known as organic peroxides, and at least 10 sheriff’s deputies were hospitalized after inhaling fumes. Officials had already evacuated residents within a one-and-a-half-mile radius of the plant in the town of Crosby, after it lost primary and backup power to its coolant system. Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez insisted in an early-morning press conference that the plant had not exploded, describing the event as a "pop" followed by smoke. But Federal Emergency Management Agency head Brock Long said a plume of chemicals leaking from the plant was "incredibly dangerous." We speak with Matt Dempsey, reporter with the Houston Chronicle who questioned Arkema about what is stored at the plant and who produced the investigative series "Chemical Breakdown," which examined regulatory failures of the chemical industry.

Meet Dulce Garcia: DREAMer & Immigration Lawyer Who Is Suing Trump for Ending DACA

Meet Dulce Garcia: DREAMer & Immigration Lawyer Who Is Suing Trump for Ending DACA | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
On Monday, six recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program sued the Trump administration in a San Francisco federal court over its plans to rescind the program. The lawsuit argues the Trump administration failed to follow proper administrative procedures in rescinding DACA and that revoking the program violates due process laws. DACA was instituted by the Obama administration in 2012 after years of sustained grassroots organizing by young undocumented students. Fifteen states and the District of Columbia have also sued the Trump administration over its plans to end DACA. We speak with one of the six plaintiffs, Dulce Garcia, an immigration lawyer who regularly defends other immigrants in court in California. She’s been living in the United States since her family immigrated from Mexico when she was four years old.

Nikole Hannah-Jones: How Wealthy White Communities Are Resegregating Alabama's Public Schools | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
As students return to school across the country, we continue our look at the resegregation of schools—particularly in Alabama. A new article in this week’s New York Times Magazine titled "The Resegregation of Jefferson County" by Nikole Hannah-Jones looks at how predominantly white towns in Alabama are increasingly pulling out of regional school districts and creating new schools that are overwhelmingly white. Critics say this is a new form of segregation. For more, we speak with Nikole Hannah-Jones.
