Newt: The New Nixon

The National Memo
Monday, January 23, 2012

Conservatives may denounce class warfare, yet by shrewdly combining the politics of class with the politics of culture, Newt Gingrich won his first election in 14 years, humbled Mitt Romney and upended the Republican Party. While drawing on resentment and class lines to corner Romney, he also tapped in to South Carolina's old racial divides. When Fox News' Juan Williams, an African-American journalist, directly challenged Gingrich about the racial overtones of Gingrich's staple reference to Obama as "the food-stamp president," the former House Speaker verbally pummeled him, to raucous cheers. As if to remind everyone of the power of coded language, a supporter later praised Gingrich for putting Williams "in his place." READ MORE

A tax return says a lot about a man, especially one aspiring to be president.

If Mitt Romney makes good on his promise during Thursday night's Republican debate to release "multiple years" of his returns, it will likely stir up rather than calm the political storm -- unless he makes public all of his returns from 1984 through 1999. Those are the years when he built a fortune of more than $200 million while running Bain Capital Management. READ MORE

The Sunshine State is six times larger than New Hampshire, has almost five times more Hispanics than Iowa, and, with ten media markets, is much more expensive for candidates than South Carolina. The unemployment rate here is 10 percent, much higher than the national 8.5 percent jobless figure. And more than 2 percent of all housing units in Florida -- which hosts the next Republican primary on January 31 --were involved in foreclosure last year. READ MORE

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona announced Sunday she will resign from Congress this week to concentrate on recovering from wounds suffered in the assassination attempt in January 2011 that shook the country. "I don't remember much from that horrible day, but I will never forget the trust you placed in me to be your voice," the Democratic lawmaker said in a video posted on her Facebook page. READ MORE

It seems that one Jeffrey Darnell Paul, a graphic artist from Miami Beach, had been tasked with creating a poster for a strip club's so-called "I Have a Dream Bash" last week in apparent "honor" of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. So this genius concocts an image of the nation's greatest human rights leader holding up a fan of hundred dollar bills like some low-rent "playa" while a scantily clad woman looks on. READ MORE

Monday's Daily Brief

Monday, January 23, 2012
Arianna Huffington: Bonjour! Le Huffington Post, an international collaboration bringing together Le Monde, Les Nouvelles Éditions Indépendantes, and the Huffington Post Media Group's signature mix of news, blogging, community, and social engagement, arrives today. While we will be importing the platform, technology, and tools from across the pond, Le Huffington Post will be rooted in French culture and will reflect France's own unique personality, rich culture, and diversity of voices. And it will do so at a time when France's fortunes, challenges, and decisions are of great consequence not only to the people of France but to all of Europe and the world beyond. For me, today's launch is the culmination of a lifetime of loving France and I'm delighted to invite readers in France and French speakers throughout the world -- as well as those who care about its people, issues, and rich culture -- to join the conversation.

By Umar R. Abdullah-Johnson 
The professional nomenclature has now become household words. Children as young as six can now speak of "Ritalin," and "ADHD" with stunning efficiency of what these words mean. Teachers and principals are telling single-parent mothers that their sons need "CYCLERT" and "ADDERALL." Special education children are telling their instructors that they cannot be suspended from school for more than ten days because they have an "IEP." Teenage boys are blaming their behavior on "I didn't have my pill today."
As soon as children begin to show signs of a learning challenge parents are racing off to the schools begging for psycho-educational evaluations believing that their children have "learning disabilities" although they have just began to learn. Collectively, we have created a monster that is wreaking havoc upon Black boys in America the explication of which is central towards a correct understanding of the underachievement and socio-economic marginalization of Black men in the United States.
The Umar Abdullah-Johnson Theory of Black Male Alienation posits that a five-stage cycle of institutional repression exists that has effectively sent more black men to jail than it has to college. Any attempt to reverse this war against America's most misunderstood population begins with a firm analysis of the process and it's origins in boyhood. Americans, including Blacks, have become so desensitized to the pain of Black boys and so expectant of their failures that their pain is often overlooked and their achievements treated like occasional glitches in a system that has successfully made Black boys a permanent underclass in this country.
The five stages of the Abdullah-Johnson theory of Black Male Alienation are 1) Miseducation, 2) Psychotropic Medication, 3) Mass Incarceration, 4) Frustration/Irritation, and 5) Extermination.
It is the job of all Black institutions, parents, elected officials, clergymen and leaders to fight to keep our young men from falling into any of these aforementioned stages. Nearly every Black man in America has already been through one of these stages or is at-risk for being sucked into one at this very minute. This brief article cannot properly address the historical underpinnings of each stage in this vicious cycle but rather it seeks to draw everyone's attention to seven (7) facts regarding life as a Black boy in America.   
  • FACT #1: Black boys are turned off from public education based upon the treatment they receive by a primarily White female teacher population beginning in kindergarten and intensifying by middle school.
  • FACT #2: Black boys are referred for learning disability and special education support programs intentionally to remove them from the general student population due to routine behavior problems thusly preparing them for a life of marginalization and prison.
  • FACT #3: Black boys are sent to detention centers and juvenile delinquent programs which interrupts their schooling and encourages school drop-out especially in states where returning to public school after such a placement is illegal.
  • FACT #4: Prisons are being used as concentration camps for Black men to be detained since the society-at-large is not interested in hiring these men by equipping them with decent livable wage jobs.
  • FACT #5: American society is more responsible than any Black man for the destabilization of the Black family by stealing fathers away from sons and thusly removing role models and over-burdening Black women with the dual role of both working for and raising their children without any paternal assistance.
  • FACT #6: The war on drugs has been a war on Black men and has served to destroy the Black community and strip it of its most valuable resource, its men.
  • FACT #7: Black boys are more likely to be put on dangerous psychiatric medications for emotional problems while White boys are more likely to receive valuable psychotherapy for the causes of their behavior problems, which come with no side effects.  
This information has been written to serve as a warning to the Black community, and all of America, to stop institutionalizing and brain drugging our sons. They are normal children and can be successful like other youth, and will respond to love and proper treatment like anyone else.
To this end, I am offering free psycho-educational workshops for parents and community organizations to train them on how to protect their sons from premature and unnecessary labeling, drugging and illegal discipline practices that take place everyday in our public and charter schools. The training will highlight five areas of practice: a) special education law and procedure, b) school discipline law and procedure, c) disruptive behavior disorders and psychiatric medicine, d) effective behavioral modification strategies for Black boys and e) the history of Black boys in public education.

He can be reached at (215) 989-9858 or umarabdullahjohnson@yahoo.com.  If you are interested in hosting this free training, anywhere in the U.S., please do not hesitate to contact him.

In Oakland, California, Black Males Students Wish for Safe Way To School
State hearings explore health of minority males 
By Bernice Yeung 
January 20, 2012
When it's 17-year-old Eric Gant's turn to testify today at an Oakland legislative hearing on the health and welfare of California's minority men and boys, he will ask for a safe way to get to school.
"Students deserve a safe path to school, like an adult wants a safe path to work," Gant, who is African American, told California Watch. "A safe pathway is so that you can walk down the street and nothing would happen, so you can get an education and make it home OK."
An outgoing and ambitious teen, Gant rattles off a few examples where he or students he knows have been targets of theft or violence on their way to school. "You think about it all day," he said of the threats. "You think about it the whole school year, maybe." He added that Oakland students need a safe place to do their homework
Gant's experience hints at one of the concerns that youth advocates have for this population: overlooked trauma related to violence in their neighborhoods. Nationally, Latino boys and young men are more than four times as likely to have post-traumatic stress disorder [PDF] as whites. African American boys are 2.5 times as likely.
Today's hearing is being convened by the Assembly Select Committee on the Status of Boys and Men of Color in California. Assemblyman Sandré Swanson, D-Oakland, said he formed the committee to examine the adverse conditions that some black, Latino and Asian boys experience and their effects on state resources and agencies. It also will look at the connections among issues like health, foster care, truancy, school dropouts, unemployment and incarceration.
"We are being holistic in what we are trying to do here," he said.
Youth advocates say the needs of this group must be addressed for the overall benefit of the state.
"If you have a segment of the population that is consistently failing and consistently incarcerated and marginalized and excluded, you can't have a state population that is thriving," said Marc Philpart, a senior associate with PolicyLink, which is coordinating a network of statewide nonprofits and researchers on the topic. "The good thing about the select committee is that it's an institutional mechanism for getting greater attention on the policy side of these particular issues, because there's no way that we can service our way out of these problems."
African American and Latino boys have higher odds of not having access to health care and experience higher rates of poverty, homicides and incarceration than their white counterparts, according to a 2009 statewide study [PDF] produced by the RAND Corp.
The RAND study documented various health and welfare concerns related to unemployment and incarceration among California's minority men and boys. A 2010 national report [PDF] on the same topics found that, among other things, "when it comes to health and other outcomes, the odds for boys and men of color are more than two times worse" than for their white counterparts.
"There's a lot of qualitative data on how young boys of color are faring emotionally," said Cassandra L. Joubert, director of the Central California Children's Institute, who has researched minority youth. "It suggests that they are under a lot of stress and are exposed to a lot of trauma because their neighborhoods are unsafe, they face a lot of life challenges, their parents are having difficulties, or their friends are being murdered. It's a whole host of things."
Community organizations and academics in Fresno, Oakland and Los Angeles also are examining
these issues.
In Fresno, researchers confirmed many of the RAND findings. They also found that black and Latino boys had higher rates of emergency room visits for asthma and sexually transmitted diseases than whites. Nearly 45 percent of Fresno County's HIV cases are among Latino men, compared with 32 percent among whites and 3 percent among Asians. Only half of Fresno's African American boys and 60 percent of Latino boys had a stable source of health care.
Joubert of the Central California Children's Institute said these statistics can be partially explained by poverty and a lack of awareness of health issues in Fresno. "A greater appreciation for how and where you live, and the resources in your community that are there or not there, or the dangers in your community and the role of place in health would help," said Joubert, who conducted the Fresno study.
Oakland health, safety and other demographic data culled by the Urban Strategies Council found that African Americans were most likely to be victims of homicide and had the highest mortality rate, at 962 deaths per 100,000 people, compared with a countywide rate of 630 deaths per 100,000. Thirty-two percent of African American men had high blood pressure, compared with 26 percent for all males, and 31 percent were obese, compared with 19 percent overall.
The Los Angeles report has not yet been released.
Today's hearing in Oakland is one in a series that will be held across the state; similar events will be held in Los Angeles on March 2, Fresno on April 13 and Sacramento on Aug. 3.
Swanson said the hearings will help legislators generate new policy ideas. Those under consideration are support for school-based health clinics and an examination of the relationship between truancy and incarceration.
Gant, the Oakland student, decided to bring his safe pathways to school idea to legislators after he participated in an event for youth and community members Saturday at the Oakland Museum of California in preparation for the hearing today.
Students at last week's event said they were concerned with gangs and police brutality; they also worry that there are "no grocery stores in the 'hood" and that there "are not many safe places where you can just hang out."
Gant participates in a number of youth organizations, including a leadership program through Kids First Oakland, and he said he thought that the research showing that minority boys and men had poorer health "could be true," but he thought it had more to do with money and resources. One of his personal mottos is "rich will thrive" because "money has a lot of power in the world, and the rich will survive and strive," he said.
"It depends on your circumstances and what you can afford," he said. "My mom, she tries to make healthy food, but I have friends who only eat ramen and McDonald's. It depends on what your job is, what your money situation is, or if you have five people living in one home and they're only making $48,000 a year. You can only do so much."
