Angela Davis: F*ck a Prison, Get Rid of Them

Posted by Bossip Staff

Angela Davis, the pioneer and revolutionary, is calling for an end to the prison system:

The U.S. prison system, in its present state, must be abolished, says University of California-Santa Cruz Professor Emeritus Angela Davis. Davis, a longtime prison reform advocate, is scheduled to speak at Ebenezer Baptist Church, Tuesday, March 24 at 7 p.m. for the keynote address of Emory University’s Women’s History Month. She cited a Pew Research Center report on prisons released earlier this month: “One in every 37 adults in this country is either behind bars or under the direct control of the corrections system — on parole or on probation. Here in Minnesota, it’s one out of every 26 adults. In terms of the entire country, that means 7.3 million people are under the control of the correction system,” Davis said. She sees prisons as “structural racism,” believing that the current U.S. justice system is “based on revenge” and current prisoner rehabilitation methods are not working. Continue »

Quote of The Day

Here is MSNBC political commentator Pat Buchanan’s response to Attorney General Eric Holder’s statement that America is a nation of “cowards” when it comes to discussing race:

Lecturing a conscript conclave of Justice Department bureaucrats, Attorney General Eric Holder last week called America a “nation of cowards” for not spending more time talking about race.

Reading his speech, however, one recalls the sage counsel of Pat Moynihan to President Nixon in 1970: This whole subject might benefit from a long period of “benign neglect.”
One point Holder did allude to, without specifics, was this:

“It is not safe for this nation to assume that the unaddressed social problems in the poorest parts of the country can be isolated and will not ultimately affect the larger society.”

Fair point. And what are some of those social problems?

A 70 percent illegitimacy rate in black America, an incarceration and crime rate seven times that of white America, a 50 percent dropout rate in many urban high schools, African-American graduates reading and computing on average at eighth-grade levels. Continue »

White Folks Ride on Obama for Not Using Proper English in Speeches

Posted by Bossip Staff

Today’s NY Times Op-Ed discussed bloggers giving Obama a hard time for saying ‘Michelle and I’ vs ‘Michelle and Me’ in his speeches:

WHEN President Obama speaks before Congress and the nation tonight, he will be facing some of his toughest critics.Since his election, the president has been roundly criticized by bloggers for using “I” instead of “me” in phrases like “a very personal decision for Michelle and I” or “the main disagreement with John and I” or “graciously invited Michelle and I.”

The rule here, according to conventional wisdom, is that we use “I” as a subject and “me” as an object, whether the pronoun appears by itself or in a twosome. Thus every “I” in those quotes ought to be a “me.” Continue »
