On est encore loin d’une Amérique au-delà des races

Posted 07/15/2013

Lors de l’élection de Barack Obama au poste de président en 2008, il y a eu ce fantasme général que nous vivions dans une Amérique au-delà des races. Les médias ont mis en avant l’idée que l’activisme pour l’égalité des droits appartenait au passé et que les activistes comme moi étaient obsolètes. Même si cela a fait rire beaucoup d’entre nous, il est important de revenir sur le sujet alors qu’approche le 50e anniversaire de la Marche vers Washington pour le travail et la liberté de Martin Luther King.

ÉGALITÉ – Lors de l’élection de Barack Obama au poste de président en 2008, il y a eu ce fantasme général, relayé par les médias, que nous vivions dans une Amérique au-delà des races. Les médias ont mis en avant l’idée que l’activisme pour l’égalité des droits appartenait au passé et que les activistes comme moi étaient obsolètes. Même si cela a fait rire beaucoup d’entre nous, il est important de revenir sur le sujet alors qu’approche le 50e anniversaire de la Marche vers Washington pour le travail et la liberté de Martin Luther King.

Still Awaiting a Post-Racial America

Posted 07/8/2013

Until we, the people of this nation, unite as one and continue fighting for expanded equality for all of God’s children so that they may in fact be free from persecution, discrimination and the shackles of inequality, a post-racial America will only be a comfort on the lips of those seeking to advance themselves.

Supreme Insult

Posted 06/25/2013

This outrageous ruling puts African Americans, other minorities, the poor and all oppressed groups now at the mercy of state governments, yet again. It’s as if we’re in pre-1965 America.

Justice Has Prevailed

Posted 06/18/2013

Nobody should be denied the right to vote, or face additional hurdles because of a strategic method to disenfranchise them. Just as no one should be racially profiled, no one should be racially blocked from the voting booth.
