Defense Begins in Sean Bell Trial

Soozy Duncan | Police officer Michael Carey took the stand Thursday as the first witness for the defense in the trial of fellow officers Michael Oliver, Gescard Isnora, and Marc Cooper for the shooting death of 23-year-old Sean Bell. Bell was killed in a hail of 50 bullets on November 25, 2006, the eve of his wedding. Officer Carey was a member of the same undercover unit as the officers on trial, and although he himself discharged 3 shots into the vehicle which Bell and his 2 friends, Joseph Guzman and Trent Benefield, occupied, he does not face any charges relative to the incident. more...  0 Comments

I'm voting for Hillary

cc | Black men could vote (1870) 50 years before women could (1920), so there is no denying that racism has been in public policy longer than sexism/male supremacy. In that, maybe it's evident that racism has also been in the public eye longer. For nowadays, racism is recognized more easily the moment it happens, and more people check themselves to see if they’re being racist.

Statement from Pam Africa re. Mumia court decision and April 19 Philly Demo

Peking Duck or “Puppet on a String”?

Nigel Carney | In this extraordinary chapter in Australian politics Prime Minister Kevin Rudd continues to downplay his long standing relations with his “Chinese Controller” recently heard bragging of his success at paving his way into Canberra’s corridors of power. Never before has the planned agenda of an aspiring PM been splashed so colorfully across the Australian and World media. As Rudd dodges the all important questions, evidence builds that we may be facing a constitutional crisis, despite the fact the Australian Constitution says very little, as such, about the role of Prime Minister. Nevertheless when ordinary Australians are ignored in favor of questionable tycoons the future of democracy in Australia faces a serious dilemma. more...  0 Comments
