The Temperature Of Black America

AFRICANGLOBE - Dignity comes from positive self-identity. This means we must acknowledge that we are "Black and proud." We have to stop relying upon the false premises and promises of "post-racial America." We must once again clearly articulate our interests as a people and hold our leaders accountable for promoting these interests.

Mass Incarceration: The Most Important Political Issue Of 2016 No One...

AFRICANGLOBE- Pew now projects that state prison populations will increase by 3 percent over the next four years, begging the question of whether the heralded end of mass incarceration was dead on arrival as a political issue.

Why Not Bring Our African Americans Back Home?

AFRICANGLOBE - Perhaps it is about time to make a political statement about the oppression of black people in America and register Africa’s disgust at the situation unfolding in America where Blacks are targets of police brutality and murders.

1 In 5 Black Youths Neither Working Nor In School

AFRICANGLOBE - On a national level, 21.6% of Black youths were considered disconnected compared with only 11.3% of whites and 7.9% of Asian Americans. Meanwhile, just over 20% of Native Americans and 16% of Latino youths were neither working or in school.

Decoding Racial Tensions In America

AFRICANGLOBE - The shooting and killing of an unarmed Blacks speak massive volumes as to the omnipresence of racial tensions/distrust between the Black community and white police officers in the United States. As an overt corollary, to all intent and purposes, these shootings and killings seem to concur directly with the March 1857 US Supreme Court Dred Scott decision to the extent that Blacks “had no rights which the white man was bound to respect” and that “slaves are not regarded as US citizens.”

Angry, White Men More Dangerous Than International Terrorists

AFRICANGLOBE -There are, in increasingly frightening numbers, cells of angry men in the United States preparing for combat with the U.S. government. They are usually heavily armed, blinded by an intractable hatred, often motivated by religious zeal. They're not jihadists. They are white, right-wing Americans, nearly all with an obsessive attachment to guns, who may represent a greater danger to the lives of American civilians than international terrorists.

40 Reasons America’s Jails And Prisons Are Full Of Black And...

AFRICANGLOBE - The US Department of Justice (DOJ) reports 2.2 million people are in our nation’s jails and prisons and another 4.5 million people are on probation or parole in the US, totaling 6.8 million people, one of every 35 adults. We are far and away the world leader in putting our own people in jail. Most of the people inside are poor and Black. Here are 40 reasons why.

America’s Establishment Shields Killer Cops

AFRICANGLOBE - The buildup of a militarized police force to occupy the cities is the ruling class’s response to the growth of popular opposition to its policies of war abroad and austerity at home. Far from doing anything to ameliorate mass poverty and inequality, America’s financial elite responds to any sign of opposition with overwhelming and murderous violence.

Abraham Lincoln ‘Wanted To Deport Black People’ To New Colonies

AFRICANGLOBE - Phillip Magness and Sebastian Page, the authors of Colonization After Emancipation: Lincoln And The Movement For Black Resettlement, discovered documents in the National Archives that will significantly alter Abraham Lincoln's legacy. They found an order from Mr. Lincoln in June 1863 authorising a British colonial agent, John Hodge, to recruit freed slaves to be sent to colonies in what are now the countries of Guyana and Belize.

US: The Rise Of The African American Police State

AFRICANGLOBE - Black people in America live in a police-state-within-a-state. The African American police state exercises its authority over the Black minority through an oppressive array of modern day lynchings by the police, increasing for-profit mass incarceration and the government sanctioned surveillance and assassination of Black leaders. The African American police state is unquestionably a modern day crime against humanity.

Hypocritical, Self Righteous America

AFRICANGLOBE - The racial upheavals in America, if not solved quickly and amicably, might escalate into a bloody, racial conflagration with more lives and property being lost, making a mockery of the self-righteousness of those who rule that country and regard themselves as a model society where human rights are observed and no one is discriminated against on the grounds of race, religion or creed.

State Of Emergency Declared As Baltimore Burns

AFRICANGLOBE - Residents of Baltimore are dealing with the damage left behind by thousands of rioters who looted stores and set buildings on fire. The governor of Maryland declared a state of emergency Monday as the streets of Baltimore erupted in violence after the funeral for an African-American man who died of injuries he sustained while in police custody.

The Police Tactic That Targets Black Americans For Simply Existing

AFRICANGLOBE - In a city in which Black people make up roughly 20 percent of the population, 59 percent of those detained for trespassing under this policy were Black. Perhaps even more telling is the fact that African-Americans are more than twice as likely as whites to be arrested, rather than simply ticketed

Killer Cops And The War On Black America

AFRICANGLOBE - As Frederick Douglass said, “for revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival.” The United States produced a bumper crop of what Billie Holiday would call “Strange Fruit,” in March: at least 111 bodies, the majority of them unarmed Black men, shot down by police in the blood-fertilised streets of American cities.

Why America’s Race Problem Wont Go Away

AFRICANGLOBE - Blacks make up about 14 percent of America’s population, yet are the majority of those incarcerated, being killed, who are homeless, who are unemployed. And it’s all happening under a president who identifies himself as Black, but who doesn’t have the interests of Black folks at heart.

Secret History: How The U.S. Supported And Inspired The Nazis

AFRICANGLOBE - Large American banks – and George W. Bush’s grandfather – financed the Nazis. Hitler and his top henchmen were inspired by Henry Ford’s writings. The American author Lothrop Stoddard was the source of the concept of “under-man (sub-human)” adopted by the Nazis in regards to Jews and communists. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the idea of killing Jews, communists and gypsies in gas chambers originated in the U.S. … not Germany.
