Google Maps directions to Nigger House

Type Nigger House into Google maps and it will take you to the White House. So who did it? Why would they do it? I wish I was shocked but since 2007 we have seen overt racism aimed at the President and his family. It is not going to stop and they are vilified if they choose to share the indignities they have endured.This is just another incident. Not the first and it will not be the last.

Duke professor post racial comments online and is put on leave…is this fair?

Wle often hear people say after every racial incident that we need to have a national conversation on race, but what does that really men? When you have a honest conversation on anything often people get their feelings hurt. Are we mature enough to handle the truth? A Duke professor, Jerry Hough is on leave for posting some racial comments on a NYT article. His comments are his personal opinion. I find them offensive but is racist the right description? Read the linked article and share your thoughts.

When is it appropriate to talk about black on black crime?

This morning I was reading an article in the Chicago Tribune about a grandmother sitting on her southside porch with her son. She was already grieving over the death of her daughter, and the funeral scheduled for today when she and he were shot. They weren’t ┬áthe Klan’s latest victims. No, they were shot by members of their own community. So where is the outrage? Where are the cameras? Where is the media? All of these questions are rhetorical because we all know the answers. Killing within the community by people who live in the community is not news. When high profile killings like Freddie Gray happen all eyes are on the case, and if anyone attempts to bring up black on black crime they are labeled as a Uncle Tom, Aunt Jemima or conservative. So let’s agree in the midst of a national story might not be the time to have the conversation, but when is the time? If the Klan was actually killing black people on a daily basis it would be a national story, but killings happen daily within the community and it is barely mentioned on the daily news. So what do you think? Can we talk or is this not the time? Share your thoughts.
