Steele: Why the RCP Can’t Lead a Revolution

Rosa Harris | ’ve been associated with the RCP, often closely, over a 25 year period, ending about two years ago. I helped work on the 9 Letters with Mike Ely.

The Costs of Crime War Myths

Mumia Abu-Jamal | I caught a brief snippet of the news a few days ago, of Delaware Senator Joseph Biden's apology for writing, introducing and sponsoring passage of a 1986 Crime Bill which heightened federal penalties for crack usage and possession.

Sen. Biden said he recognized now that the bill was based on myth. Much of it hyped by the daily press, which in turn fed the National phobia about drugs, and pushed politicians to support more and more draconian methods of repression. more...  0 Comments

Between Rap and Reggae

Mumia Abu-Jamal | For while inner city poverty gave birth to a music that spoke to conditions of the Bronx, Brooklyn, and East Coast life in worsening ghettoes, reggae emerged from the slums of Jamaica, where the poor were informed, not only by their poverty, but by the decades long socio-religious movement of Rastafarianism, which, with its return-to-Africa ethos, gave a future vision of hope to people in largely hopeless conditions. more...  0 Comments

Borough President Scott Stringer comes out with new cookbook

A fan | Scott Stringer is a fiery advocate for community-based planning. He was instrumental in demanding that only 50% of the public fields on Randall's Island be sold to private schools; and he lent his good offices to the cause of Columbia expansion when he announced a 'deal' which only the University and two sell-out front groups approved of. He's a great cook! more...  3 Comments

Recently, it has been reported that there is a brisk and bustling business in a country touted as 'the world's largest democracy', where the illicit sale of kidneys has become a kind of cottage industry! more...  0 Comments

Linking 'The Dream' to Today's Reality (Indypendent)

Alex Kane | On Jan. 21, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, nearly 1,000 people marched in freezing weather from WABC headquarters on West 32nd Street to CNN headquarters on West 58th Street. They invoked King’s message of racial equality while focusing on present-day race relations, including the anti-immigrant sentiment espoused by CNN anchor Lou Dobbs, the NYPD shooting death of Sean Bell and the Jena Six case.

Love, Linn Washington Jr, and Dave Lindorff. Also interesting is the exchange between the Reuters journalist covering the press conference, and the panel, as he questions them about why it took so long for the photos to emerge publicly as they are now. Later that day, his article was published as "Abu Jamal backers say new evidence merits retrial". more...  0 Comments
