Are you watching or listening to this nonsense? Why haven't they arrested this man for shooting this Black boy? If the shooter were Black, the person would have been guilty before assumed innocent. What is it going to take for people, communities, government to rise up and stop the killing of innocent boys and girls?

Black Star LogoThe congressional hearing room in the Rayburn House Office Building was lit brightly, all warm and cozy. The chairs around the witness table were comfortable, and a bottle of water was set before each place.
It was quite a contrast to the living conditions of Rumi Khan, an 11-year-old sixth-grader; Brooklyn Pastor, a 12-year-old seventh-grader; and Brittany Amber Koon, a Pvt. First Class in the U.S. Army.
Bounced between motels and homeless shelters, sleeping in cars, using gas station bathrooms to wash up and brush their teeth in, these young people were here to ask a Congress -47 percent of whose members have a net worth of $1 million or more - for a little help.

"Everyone in the African-American community had been seeing exactly what she is talking about but couldn't put it into words," said Phillip Jackson, executive director of the Black Star Project, an educational advocacy group in Chicago.
"It's easy to be completely unaware that this vast new system of racial and social control has emerged," Professor Michelle Alexander said. "Unlike in Jim Crow days, there were no 'Whites Only' signs. This system is out of sight, out of mind."

During 2012 NCAA March Madness, Gap In Graduation Rates between Black and White Men's Basketball Players Remains Wide

Black Star Logo
Ahead of Thursday's tipoff of the NCAA men's basketball tournament, a study has found anew that the gap in the graduation rate between white and black players remains wide.
The annual report, "Keeping Score When It Counts," by the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sports at the University of Central Florida found a 28 percent difference between the graduation rates of white players compared to their black counterparts. The report found a four-point improvement from last year, but according to lead author Richard Lapchick the driving force behind the change was a decrease in the percentage of white players graduating.
Black Graduation Rates for 8 Top-Seeded NCAA Teams
Kentucky - 60% 
Duke - 100%
Michigan State - 67% 
Missouri - 57%
Syracuse - 44%
Ohio State - 50%
North Carolina - 100%
Kansas - 80%

What Research Says:
Researchers Karen Smith Conway, professor of economics at the University of New Hampshire, and her colleague Andrew Houtenville,Black Star Logo senior research associate at New Editions Consulting, found that parental involvement has a strong, positive effect on student achievement.  "Parental effort is consistently associated with higher levels of achievement, and the magnitude of the effect of parental effort is substantial. We found that schools would need to increase per-pupil spending by more than $1,000 in order to achieve the same results that are gained with parental involvement," Conway said.
Nomination forms are due in schools Friday, March 23, 2012, 3:00pm.

If the Republican Party had an establishment with backbone and moral fiber, it would have pushed back against the prejudices of its ultraconservative base, educating them about the many contributions that Latinos -- those who crossed the border with papers as well as those who sneaked in -- make to this country. For one thing, they have lowered the age of the average American worker, helping the U.S. stave off the population collapse that is facing countries such as Japan. Instead, the GOP political class has decided to try to prevent those immigrants from voting. READ MORE

Mitt Romney scored an overwhelming win Sunday in Puerto Rico's Republican presidential primary, trouncing chief rival Rick Santorum on the Caribbean island even as the two rivals looked ahead to more competitive contests this week in Illinois and Louisiana. Prevailing with more than 50 percent of the vote, Romney's victory in the U.S. territory was big enough to claim all 20 delegates to the party's national convention -- more than he picked up in New Hampshire, Iowa, or South Carolina.

Even in Britain, however, top politicians on the left, like Red Sox fan and Labor Party leader David Milliband, are pressuring right-wingers with the same question: "Do they have any vision for the future that goes beyond reducing the deficit? That's the right's vulnerability and the left's opportunity." It is a challenge that both President Obama and the Republicans who want to replace him might usefully ponder. READ MORE

Known for attending Mass almost daily, Santorum organized a Catholic study group for lawmakers when he served in Congress, has fought abortion and defended traditional marriage. His God-infused language has helped Santorum connect with evangelical Republicans, who fuel his strong showing in state after state. Yet in one of the more puzzling developments among many in this year's GOP contest, he's nowhere nearly as popular among his fellow Roman Catholics. READ MORE

He is accused of the kind of crime that makes people shiver, the killing of families in their own homes under cover of night, the butchery of defenseless children. Under normal circumstances, Americans would dismiss such an act as worthy of only one response: swift and merciless punishment.

Not so in the case of Robert Bales -- at least, not for some Americans. READ MORE
