Little Known Black History Fact: Lani Guinier

July 9, 2015

There are alway very good black peoples everywhere.

Black America Web

Lani Guinier is best known as the first African-American woman to make tenure at the prestigious Harvard Law School. Today, Ms. Guinier is the Bennett Boskey Professor of Law at the institution, and has devoted much of her career to a variety of causes and how they relate with the laws of the land. But she is also remembered for the 1993 controversy that derailed her nomination to a high-ranking federal position.

Guinier was born April 19, 1950 in New York City to a Black Panamanian father, Ewart Guinier, who was raised in Jamaica, and a White Jewish mother, Eugenia Paprin. Mr. Guinier was one of the first two Black students admitted into Harvard College in 1929. He eventually had to drop out of the school, but returned there as a professor in the late ’60’s.

Guinier graduated from Radcliffe College in 1971, and Yale Law School. She was a clerk…

The True History Behind Cersei’s Game of Thrones Walk of Shame

June 15, 2015

When you look at history some of the things are true and most are word of mouth.

TIME

Contains spoilers for the season five finale of Game of Thrones

When Game of Thrones has Cersei Lannister take a naked walk of penance after her imprisonment at the Sept—an act that actress Lena Headey has said is so humiliating that nobody would ever deserve it—part of the point is that she’s all alone. In a crowd of the clothed masses, she is naked. A ringing bell draws attention to her plight. She leaves a single trail of bloody footprints. But, despite all that, she’s not actually alone: Cersei is part of a long history of medieval “walk of shame” participants.

George R.R. Martin has cited one particular such walk as an inspiration for what happens to Cersei: Jane Shore, a mistress of King Edward IV of England, who did her penance in 1483. Edward had fallen and Richard III—against whose rise she had conspired—took the throne that year. Though…

The Latest On Prison Escape: Union Says No Staffer Suspended

June 10, 2015

Well sooner are later they will be caught.

Black America Web

11:15 a.m. (EDT)

Unions representing guards and civilian staff at the northern New York prison where two killers escaped say many have been questioned by investigators but none has been suspended, disciplined or charged with wrongdoing five days after the getaway was discovered.

Among them is Joyce Mitchell, an industrial training supervisor at maximum-security Clinton Correctional Facility.

Her son tells NBC that his mother, an instructor in the tailor shop where Richard Matt and David Sweat worked, wouldn’t have helped them escape.

Tobey Mitchell says his mother checked herself into a hospital Saturday with chest pains.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has said the men must have had help in cutting their way through a steel cell wall and steam pipes with a power tool.

The Civil Service Employees Association says many of its 150 civilian employees have been questioned.

Captain America Dons a Turban

June 8, 2015

A very good insight on some view of the world.

TIME

I was born in our nation’s capital in the early 1970s – but sometimes when people see me in my turban, they think of conflicts in faraway lands, terrorism here at home, Hollywood caricatures, and sensationalized news coverage.

Donning the costume of a superhero—complete with unitard and shield, in addition to the turban of my Sikh faith—changed all that. Suddenly, there was no question that I was American.

Like any good comic book, there’s an origin story. One that covers moving thousands of miles away from home after high school, trying to make my superpower invisibility, and fending off a constant barrage of hate speech.

Sikhs believe in the innate equality of all, striving to merge with energy that traverses every speck of the universe. Fighting against injustice and practicing the art of compassion are part of our spiritual practice.

As a physical manifestation of this journey, Sikhs must don…

What to Expect From Game of Thrones This Week

June 5, 2015

Last sunday show was a heart stopper hope this sunday show be just as good.

TIME

Warning: Spoilers from the first five seasons of Game of Thrones to follow.

Over the course of its first four seasons, Game of Thrones has earned a reputation for penultimate episodes characterized by shocking twists, epic battles and buckets of blood. In the first season, honest Ned Stark lost his head. In the second, Stannis Baratheon unsuccessfully laid siege to King’s Landing. The third season’s second-to-last episode gave us the Red Wedding, and last season’s ninth-hour told the story of the battle at Castle Black between the Night’s Watch and the Wildlings. Those four episodes are often counted amongst the show’s best—so it’s little wonder that expectations for Sunday’s season-five penultimate offering, “The Dance of Dragons,” are reaching lofty heights.

Compounding those expectations are the developments of last week’s “Hardhome.” After a couple of lackluster offerings from this season’s fifth and sixth hours, “Hardhome” proved a genuine turning point for…

Why is it that a person like “Ann Coulter” have so much to say about nothing? It have come to my mind that she think she know about blacks peoples from her chestnuts of comment,you see I’m a black Republicans and don’t like the idea that she suppose to be a talk head for some racist republicans who were part of the south Democratic party from the old south when they were out burning cross’s back in the old days. And as far as some working class white they are the one who sit around why more of us do all the work if that was not the case then why don’t they get in the field while the sun is hot? They forget that if it were not for blacks,jews and latin immigration some of them would not be at the top! As far as a nut case like “Allen West” he just a member of a clan call “moreteasir peoples” that right that what we call peoples like them that you have in your comment about “what has Obama done for blacks”.Beside what can you do beside putting your foot in your mouth without think? Thank to people’s like Chris Matthews I’m very happy with what he is doing,beside blacks have die for this country and work hard just like everyone else. And beside name a country who pay for a war with a credit card? 

 

Turning off the Voter

June 14, 2011

Well it look like we are at a crossroad in the history of the American people’s where there are so many opinions that can kill a herd of grasshopper. While big Business was having a huge impact on everyday life back before 9-11 most people were in a positive mode. Now ten-year years later we have a group of people’s “Tea-party” who some-how were sleep until the too big to fail short the financial impact that they have on the lower half from the ivory tower. Well these shameless Peoples are trying to tell the bottom half that their freedoms and liberties have been encroach on, if you were to think about it one could view it as the poor is not happy being poor. Big business have multiple opportunities to enrich the world with the share wealth that they were making off the poor of the world. Not that I’m saying this could have been the reason for the end-game to 9-11, but some of us the America people s were sleeping for a while why the top half were making money for themselves and country’s who have some bad Peoples who we will call terrorist for this point of view for this time period. When you make money for other who don’t care about the people they rule then you grow hate for the one that they think is the cause of their problem namely us, the United States of Americans, now there is another group that trying to raised up, they don’t want regulation where it would stop them from getting rich off of killing the earth,air and water in the name of financial impact, think God that there were three administration who did get out of the sleep mode and try to save the lower half, but the upper half get to learn that they are the one who is encroaching on our freedom with their mind-set where they think they can scrambled the way of the world, you get to take care of the Peoples,air,water,earth even God have rules.
