US Economic Outlook – The Plight of the Unemployed
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Patrick_Saint_Jean]Patrick Saint Jean

There is a spirit of somber, a soft unspoken sense of fear and disappointment in most urban cities in America; as millions of people are coping with the reality of a great economic decline in the US. Once a beacon of hope, revered by millions as a place where even a lowly average person can earn enough money to provide a comfortable living for themselves and their family. Nowhere but amidst the rich and famous, the powerful executives and their established and favored lieutenants will you see this gleamor of hope...

African Americans, Unemployment, and the US Economy
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Curt_Canada]Curt Canada

I had initially planned to write about my recent accomplishments with a landscaping project in our backyard however I ran across an article featured in the AFRO newspaper that caught my attention. I couldn’t help but bring attention to the June Labor statistic regarding African Americans who not surprisingly lead this month’s unemployment picture.

Alan King, Staff Writer for the AFRO mentions in his article “African Americans lead in unemployment-June Labor Stats Show Little Change In Unemployment.” The overall unemployment statistical picture showed the number of unemployed persons in the U.S. at 14...

Slavery Reparations: Past Overdue
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=William_Sutherland]William Sutherland

The annals of history are stained by an undeniable era of darkness; though the genocide remains unspoken, trivialized and sanitized – Africans and persons of color were the victims of an unimaginable holocaust that spanned 400 years costing between 50 and 100 million lives.

Cities and villages were burned and razed, cultural treasures and technological contributions were ravaged and destroyed; a continent was raped – her youth and potential stolen, her resources exploited, a history was erased and a people denied their purpose and worth.

Born royalty, princes and princesses were stripped of their birthright, and the...

Destined to Witness, Hans Massaquoi


Destined to Witness: Growing Up Black in Nazi Germany

Book Description

Release date: February 6, 2001

This is a story of the unexpected.In Destined to Witness, Hans Massaquoi has crafted a beautifully rendered memoir — an astonishing true tale of how he came of age as a black child in Nazi Germany. The son of a prominent African and a German nurse, Hans remained behind with his mother when Hitler came to power, due to concerns about his fragile health, after his father returned to Liberia. Like other German boys, Hans went to school; like other German boys, he swiftly fell under the Fuhrer’s spell. So he was crushed to learn that, as a black child, he was ineligible for the Hitler Youth. His path to a secondary education and an eventual profession was blocked...

Should African American Men Buy Into The Victimhood Motif?
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Lance_Winslow]Lance Winslow

Not long ago, I was speaking to an African-American mom from Washington DC. I wasn’t sure if I should use the term African-American because, I’ve never really liked that term, much less Hyphenated-American anything, but that is how she identified herself. These days in my writing I am cognizant that it’s so easy to be black-listed as a racist if you don’t use the right terms in your online work. Most of my friends are successful, and they are of all different races, so I don’t even think of them as this, that, or the other hyphenated thing, they are just people.

My Washington DC acquai...

On April 25, 2010, CBS 60 Minutes aired an amazing however, alarming story on college students’ use of Ritalin, Adderall and other psychiatric drugs to “get an academic edge.”As a clinician in the front line of treating destructions chemical dependence cause in the lives of addicted individuals, their families and the society at large, I was grossly disturbed by the story.

For several years now, I have been working with citizens such as the young men and women who appeared in this story fight to gain sobriety an...

Genocide – Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow

Hitler was accused of this, even Saddam Hussein was hanged for the same, and this made Lemkin to combine two words from two different languages to evolve a new terminology. What is it, that when uttered turns the gooseflesh of an individual? Is this term worth so much effort and innovation that it has gobbled the minds of the globe’s most efficient organizations?

In the Age of Extremes, in a period when the World Wars were witnessed and there were a series of State sponsored murders; the mid-century scholars were groping for a new word to describe the gruesome events...

Annihilation of Native Americans
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Dennis_Shannon_Murray]Dennis Shannon Murray

In America today, there are many discussions about racism, diversity and cultures. Some believe we are a melting pot with blended families and everyone is treated equal. While others view our society as one of disparate treatment, inequities among the races and injustice and unfair treatment inflicted by the majority population towards minorities.

One culture of people that does not appear often in today’s headlines is the Native Americans. In my opinion, there is little discussion about their experience and their sacrifices...

The Holocaust
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Charles_Weinblatt]Charles Weinblatt

We spell the Holocaust with a capital “H” because it represents the single most devastating example of genocide in history. It was not “a’ holocaust, but “THE” Holocaust, because millions of innocent people were exterminated for their belief in God. At the command of the German government, millions of Jews were systematically annihilated. That’s in addition to the murder of millions of additional “undesirables” (gypsies, homosexuals, political prisoners, Russian prisoners, criminals, etc.). The German government used these innocent people as scapegoats in order to distract the citizens of Europe from the military conquest that was already underway.

Consider only...

Zombie Apocalypse: What Will Really Happen?

By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Mike_Kuykendall]Mike Kuykendall

Okay, so nobody really believes that actual zombies exist, much less that they will be attacking everyone someday. But people who identify themselves as either preppers or survivalists regularly use the term “zombie” to describe people who are not prepared for a major catastrophe.

These “zombies” will be the people who are knocking down the doors of those who have prepared supplies to make it through the terror attack, nuclear explosion or other doomsday scenario...
