Until Housing is a Right, Blacks Will Live Marginalized Lives | Black Agenda Report | Revolutionary Truth | Scoop.it
News, analysis and commentary from the black left.

A Black Agenda Radio commentary by executive editor Glen Ford: A new report says housing policies should be based on filling social needs rather than using housing as a wealth-building mechanism. “Housing should be treated as a right, and housing policies must be informed by the realities of race.”

Jacqueline Keeler's curator insight, January 12, 2014 4:27 PM

“The very notion that housing should be affordable to all – much less that housing is a right – has all but disappeared from major party political discourse.”


This year’s Martin Luther King Day report from United for a Fair Economy critiques U.S. housing policy, which has always been geared towards individual family home ownership.

How Well Does the Media Cover Race? [Report] - COLORLINES

How Well Does the Media Cover Race? [Report] - COLORLINES | Revolutionary Truth | Scoop.it
In a new report, Colorlines’ publisher, Race Forward, analyzes more than one thousand articles and transcripts to see how mainstream media frame race and racism.

Jacqueline Keeler's curator insight, January 21, 2014 4:13 PM

You’ve probably noticed how media focus on whether or not Paula Deen or some other celebrity or public figure is intentionally racist, rather than on the institutional and structural root causes of the racial disparities that continue plague our society.

 

Well, now there’s a two-part report that can help you quantify that intuition, “Moving the Race Conversation Forward: How the Media Covers Racism, and Other Barriers to Productive Racial Discourse.” 


The report comes from the researchers at Race Forward, publisher of Colorlines, who analyzed nearly 1,200 newspaper articles and transcripts from cable TV outlets  from 2013, and found that two thirds of race-focused coverage either emphasized alleged individual racism or prioritized voices that dismissed the persistence of racism as a significant force in our country today.
