What is that Black people are supposed to do ?  

  FLASHBlack >>>In the midst of the most vitriolic political theater seen in our lifetime, we are looking up from the bottom of the well in a fog of schizophrenic confusion, one thing is clear - establishment politics is not an option.  FLASHBlack >>> Donald Trump is now being positioned as abnormal, not representative. How is his politics and behavior different from most of the sitting Congress?   FLASHBlack >>> Just what is radical left Black politics and where does it live? Can we reconcile the progressive Black political witht he radical Black left?   FLASHBlack >>> Black supporters of Hillary, are they just looking for love in all the wrong places or simply without facts?   FLASHBlack >>> What after Bernie? 

FLASHBlack >>> I'm telling on Y'all.

Racial Justice Now statement on the brutalization of a young Black student at Spring Valley High School, Columbia, SC

 

"Black students around the nation are over-represented in referrals to law enforcement and Black girls in particular are pushed out of school at 6 times the rate of their white female counterparts and most boy’s with the acceptation of Black male students. Nowhere is this more relevant than here in Ohio where Black children represent over 50% of all out of school suspensions and expulsions. Just last month in Akron a black female middle school student was suspended for 5 day’s for what the teacher called “kool-aid crack”. And earlier this month a Cincinnati area Judge upheld a suspension for a 12 year old Black boy for “staring at a white girl”. - RJN

Zakiya Sankara-Jabar is a Parent Organizer/Advocate and Director of Racial Justice NOW! Racial Justice NOW! (RJN!) is a community based organization led by Black parents organizing to lift up their voice and agency in the educational outcomes of their children.

This week on OUR COMMON GROUND, we will review and examine the truth about the policies and intent of the "War on Drugs". We need to talk about the money making behind the politics; how the drug war can be considered slow Nazi policy on the poor and the racial profiling used. We look at these destructive and failed policy and manipulation in its historical context and destructive outcomes. We will present audio clips for our discussion which will assist us in understanding just how much the "War on Drugs" was really never about drugs.

For sheer government absurdity, the War on Drugs is hard to beat. After three decades of increasingly punitive policies, illicit drugs are more easily available, drug potencies are greater, drug killings are more common, and drug barons are richer than ever. The War on Drugs costs Washington more than the Commerce, Interior, and State departments combined - and it's the one budget item whose growth is never questioned. A strangled court system, exploding prisons, and wasted lives push the cost beyond measure. What began as a flourish of campaign rhetoric in 1968 has grown into a monster. And while nobody claims that the War on Drugs is a success, nobody suggests an alternative. Because to do so, as Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders learned, is political suicide. As a community we need to understand how Drug War fever has been escalated; who has benefited along the way; and how the mounting price in dollars, lives, and liberties has been willfully ignored. Where are the policy maker offices where each new stage was planned and executed? What happened in the streets where policies have produced bloody warfare. This is a tale of the nation run amok - in a way the American people are not yet ready to confront. Are you?

You are invited to bring your thoughts about the pressing issues facing our community. Come listen and learn. SHARE please.

OUR COMMON GROUND where friends come to confer with allies.

Tonight we look back at this week's uprising in Baltimore MD and explore where we go from here. How do we prepare a generation of people for a new, more militarized war on Black people? How do we get our people to see, "we are the Gaza?" Looking at the Freddie Gray murder charges and the overall fracture and failure of the Amerikkan judicial and government systems.

The Department of Justice issued a report on Wednesday detailing what it alleged was the Ferguson Police Department's pattern of racial bias and violations of people's Constitutional rights.

Shortly after the release, Attorney General Eric Holder held a news conference in which he said the police had created a "highly toxic environment" for the residents of Ferguson, especially for blacks.

"These policing practices disproportionately harm African American residents," Holder said, according to prepared remarks from the news conference. "In fact, our review of the evidence found no alternative explanation for the disproportionate impact on African American residents other than implicit and explicit racial bias."

According to the report, between 2012 and 2014, blacks made up 85 percent of the department's vehicle stops, 90 percent of citations, and 93 percent of arrests, even though they comprise just 67 percent of Ferguson's population.

In the 105-page report, the Department of Justice described numerous accounts from Ferguson residents about their interactions with police officers.

 

Does the report or the path established by the DOJ adequate to address the findings and the "new jim crow" era of police terrorism against Black people in America?

During an interview with “The Breakfast Club” Monday morning, Angela Yee asked the Democratic candidate what she always has in her purse. “Hot sauce,” Clinton answered. “Yeah.” The possible Democratic Party nominee went on to say, “Now listen, I want you to know that people are going to see this and say, ‘She’s pandering to black people,'” What DOES hot sauce got to do with it? Does #HotSauceMatter?

 He was told by the DEA that there should be no drug enforcement in rich White areas. And he told. After leaving the force, Fogg spent his retirement advocating for greater protections for officers who expose internal corruption within law enforcement agencies. 

He advocates for the civil rights of citizens who are in fear of police misconduct and brutality. Mr. Fogg serves as a mentor for our youth through his work with Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) Fogg owns the trademark “Bigots with Badges” following the publication of a story in the New York Post that featured that headline and told the story of Fogg’s years as a marshal and his lawsuit against the Justice Department

And now, he wants to take lifelong fight for justice to Capitol Hill. He is one of six Democrats vying for the party nomination to replace outgoing Rep. Donna F. Edwards (D) in Maryland’s 4th Congressional District.

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus's insight:
She is the National Spokesperson for Bernie Sanders ringing the bell for a new brand of politics and direction for not only the Democratic Party but for Black people in America.  We welcome this awesome woman back to OUR COMMON GROUND to talk "the Bern".

Nina Turner always knew she wanted to be a voice for those less fortunate, and throughout her career in public service–as activist, educator, mentor and policymaker–she has made it her mission to empower individuals, institutions, and communities to achieve their greatest greatness.

 Nina’s passionate advocacy has earned her regular appearances on national television and radio programs and accolades from numerous national organizations. Nina is currently a Professor of History at Cuyahoga Community College and the Chair of Political Engagement at the Ohio Democratic Party.

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus's insight:

We are pleased to have Ruby Sales join us tonight as we discuss with you about our response to a rising and troubling challenge to the agency of Black people as citizens in this country. As we come closer to the term end of the first African-American elected to the Presidency, violence and terrorism of all kinds have been unleashed upon us threatening to silence our mobilization and voice to protect ourselves, to resist and to rebel. A slogan alone will not be enough. How do we keep the flames of liberation burning to move forward in this continuing struggle ? 

Welcome to Part II of the 2015 Season as we gather in earnest and with urgency on OUR COMMON GROUND.

Almost 130 years after the Emancipation Proclamation, the legacy of slavery remains. It is embedded in and influences every aspect of social, economic and political life. Institutionalized racism is the combined economic, political, social, cultural, legal, ideological and other structures that exist to maintain the system of inequality. #RaceMatters 

Institutionalized racism has economic, social, political, ideological and cultural forms, and denies equality, justice and dignity to all people of color. There are new problems because of the systemic nature of crisis. Our discussions should examine what adjustments must be made in these new efforts to eradicate our place in this society. We rebel and resist the effort to force us into the margins, to make us invisible and to remove us to prison for profit camps.

Our discussions must explore and examine how to elevate our voices in the fight against police brutality, housing discrimination, immigrant rights, and the dismantlement of public education to mention a few issues. At OUR COMMON GROUND provide “a place for our unfiltered voices”. With the brightest, most loyal and insightful Black activists, community organizers and servants, scholars, researchers, journalists and social scientists we raise, clarify and illuminate the racist dimension of these issues, show how their roots lie in the system of capitalism and its new stage of crisis. 

You are invited to bring your thoughts about the pressing issues facing our community.

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus's insight:

" The Matter of White ManNess: The Bad Apple Argument NOT"

When people hear stories of police misconduct, brutality and murder under law or videos of college students singing songs of lynching Black people or elected officials creating legislation designed to oppress and discriminate many are quick to defend the system as a whole and say that these are just examples of “a few bad apples”. We submit that such arguments are ‘bullshyt’. These problems are definitely systematic and "the bad apple arguments" do not pass the test of logic. 
Does not a rotten apple pollute all the apples in the crate ? Or, is their bacteria in the crate which infects all the apples ? This racist behavior living in a “specialized white male culture’ living off of white privilege and supremacy is impossible. It pollutes and empowers whatever real or assumed power they are granted. Our children die and live by this system. Our tax dollars support it.

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus's insight:

The Supreme Court has heard the arguments in the case which threatens the ability of housing discrimination complainants to get a share of fairness in law. Will the Court discount the strength of the Fair Housing Act to protect those for which it is intended ? Will predatory lending have free reign ? Will Black people just simply have to take the rejections and subjective measure of landlords and banks, and will their teen sons be the arbiter by some racist landlord to "just say no'? James Perry was there to hear the arguments and we will talk with him as his weighs in on whether the this Act will go the way of other civil rights protections under this Court. Join us.
