    Legendary professional wrestler “Rowdy” Roddy Piper passed away on Friday, July 31, 2015. He succumbed to a heart attack in his Hollywood, Californiahome. Born, Roderick George Toombs, Piper was 61-years-old.Roddy Piper is best known for his work with the (then) World Wrestling Federation during the 1980s and feuds with Hulk Hogan, Mr. T, and Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka. While he is a member of the WWE’s Hall of Fame, I would dare to suggest that in the future it is far more likely that Roddy Piper will be remembered for starring in the 1988 cult classic film They Live.The plot of John…

    In 2014, voter turnout hit new lows for a midterm election: The most recent census data suggest turnout was a measly 41.9 percent. It’s likely that turnout was even lower, since the census data, while the best we have, is slightly inflated by the fact that people overreport socially positive behaviors like voting. Data that… Read More » The post The GOP wants to jail the vote: How the prison-industrial complex is directly undermining democracy appeared first on Black Politics on the Web.

     I am sorry to hear about the Canadian robot who met an unfortunate end while here in the "city of brotherly love".  (That's him in an AP file photo. He is looking much worse these days)Here in Philly we can be tough like that.  I wonder if Meek Mill's peeps had something to do with that. The Philly rapper and his crew have no love for anything from Canada these days. I am not sure what those Canadians were thinking when they tried to get little hitchBOT to hitchhike across America all by its lonesome.  Newsflash: America is…

These two modern day Aunt Jemimas found it necessary to get on television and defend Ellisabeth Hasselbeck after her clueless and ignorant statements about Sandra Bland. "There are times, I’m sure, someone has, in the history of this land, used a cigarette against a police officer."Huh????Now you will notice that I didn't say that what she (Hasselbeck) said was racist.

    My recent open letter to White America about the perils of toxic white masculinity has caused some upset. I have apparently broken some unstated rule in American public discourse. "There is no such as fight club!" has apparently been replaced with "there is no such thing as white masculinity!"Moreover, there is especially no such thing as toxic white masculinity.The open sewer that is the Right-wing media and their thrall trolls who pollute and muck up the comment sections of many websites has provided much entertainment in response to my piece on toxic white masculinity.

    Dear White America,I am your friend. I have written several letters of this type to you before. It pains me to have to do so again. What I am going to share in this letter may be commonsense for many white brothers and sisters. Other White Americans may be surprised. Because our society is so segregated, people of color often do not have many opportunities to talk with white people in a direct way regarding our sincere worries about the problems in your community. I hope that this open letter can be part of a broader conversation in that regard.When a person suffers from chronic pain they…
  • They are Wannabe Judge Dredds: This is What Murder by Cop Looks Like. Ray Tensing's Thug Cop Brethren Conspire to Cover Up the Killing of Samuel DuBose

    The corrupt cop is a fixture in pulp fiction and noir entertainment.He or she places themselves above the law in order to personally profit--or to avoid the consequences for their illegal deeds.The cop with the dumb gat which they use to place near the body of a person they summarily executed was seen in the video recorded killing of Walter Scott by thug cop Michael Slager.This week, we saw, again, a similar routine where Ray Tensing killed Samuel Dubose in Cincinnati without cause, and in cold blood with a shot to the head, as Tensing's fellow thug cops Eric Weibel and Phillip Kidd…

    Let the record show that from this moment on men will no longer be able to claim that “females” gossip too much or are too sensitive. Because while I don’t know much about Ciara and Russell Wilson’s relationship—like how long they’ve been together, or how they met—what’s clear is their paring has caused a lot of men to put all of their pettiness on display. First Future, Ciara’s ex-fiancé, spent way too much time talking about their breakup while promoting his new album, and now other men are jumping into the fray. After pictures surfaced of Wilson giving baby Future a hug…

When asked if he thought the GOP would try to reign in the outspoken real estate mogul during this week’s debate, Hughley – as usual – didn’t hold his tongue. He believes Trump is now a frontrunner simply because he appeals to this country’s racist underbelly. Hugley opined, I think the more racist stuff Trump says, the better he does in the polls.

  • White Robes and Burning Crosses: A History of the Ku Klux Klan from 1866

    aaaunufsm@gmail.com
    22 Jul 2015 | 3:27 pm
    With its fiery crosses and nightriders in pointed hoods and flowing robes, the Ku Klux Klan remains a recurring nightmare in American life. What began in the earliest post-Civil War days as a social group engaging in drunken hijinks at the expense of perceived inferiors soon turned into a murderous paramilitary organization determined to resist the "evils" of radical Reconstruction. For six generations and counting, the Klan has inflicted misery and death on countless victims nationwide and since the early 1920s, has expanded into distant corners of the globe. From the Klan's post-Civil War…

    "The only work that treats Ku Kluxism for the entire period of it's existence. . . . the authoritative work on the period. Hooded Americanism is exhaustive in its rich detail and its use of primary materials to paint the picture of a century of terror. It is comprehensive, since it treats the entire period, and enjoys the perspective that the long view provides. It is timely, since it emphasizes the undeniable persistence of terrorism in American life—John Hope Franklin
  • Ku-Klux: The Birth of the Klan during Reconstruction

    22 Jul 2015 | 3:27 pm
    The first comprehensive examination of the nineteenth-century Ku Klux Klan since the 1970s, Ku-Klux pinpoints the group's rise with startling acuity. Historians have traced the origins of the Klan to Pulaski, Tennessee, in 1866, but the details behind the group's emergence have long remained shadowy. By parsing the earliest descriptions of the Klan, Elaine Frantz Parsons reveals that it was only as reports of the Tennessee Klan's mysterious and menacing activities began circulating in northern newspapers that whites enthusiastically formed their own Klan groups throughout the South. The…

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Ku Klux Klan share a long and complicated history. Beginning with their first confrontation in 1922, this book examines the similarities, covert collaborations and common goals of the FBI and the KKK. After briefly describing the history of each, it explores the development of their association and the specific ways in which each organization furthered the other's goals. The book traces eighty years of parallel development and the conservative attitudes that, astonishingly, drew the FBI and the KKK together.

    Chicken wings are just one of those things that I personally can't get enough of. Pair them with a nice bold IPA and some crispy french fries and I can die happy. I decided to do a grilled version of Wingstop's garlic parmesan wings because I love working on the grill and also because I don't have a deep fryer and I hate frying in my tiny apartment.
