Does Being A Minority Mean You Can’t Ever Win In America? By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Lance_Winslow]Lance Winslow

Not long ago, I was speaking with an acquaintance from Washington DC about how unfair it was for minorities in this country. I must say I know at one time that might have been true, but today, I’d say that’s just not the case anymore. In fact, with all the reverse discrimination going on these days, you’d be better off to be a minority, even if you minority status was false and you were really the majority race in your particular region of our nation, for instance being of Hispanic decent in let’s say; Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Antonio, or Tucson.

You see, in the US we agree that everyone i...

Black People Deposit Your Money In Black Owned Banks By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Hassan_Sharrieff]Hassan Sharrieff

Black People (African Americans) deposit your money in Black Owned Banks.

A bank is one of the most important if not the most important institution in any community. A bank is a stabilizing force in the community it serves. It loans money to small businesses to help them expand and create jobs. It assist religious and community organizations to help them better address the particular needs of the community. It helps individuals to become home owners and help existing home owners make repairs and additions to their property...

White Boys, Food Stamps and Eliot Spitzer By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Gene_Lalor]Gene Lalor

Some news stories are infuriating, some are validating, some are positively and pathetically amusing. One of each classification follows:

White Boys: They may not be able to jump but at least one black judge in Pennsylvania thinks they get favored treatment.

It should be ironic given President Obama’s post-racial America that Allegheny County Judge Joseph Williams still thinks that way but it’s not ironic at all since Obama’s post-racial America is a sorry joke.

Williams rejected a plea deal of 3 months probation for 24 year old Jeffery McGowan in a case involving a fight with a traffic cop saying that it was “a ridiculous plea th...

The Situation

As students prepare for the upcoming school year, parents are hoping for a good year. However, I wonder whether beneath the surface things will improve. We routinely hear about students with bad attitudes and low performance. My focus isn’t on the ‘bad’ kids but on the good ones who want to do the right things. However, many people are in the dark when it comes to the needs of our black youth. Most citizens don’t understand the issues of black families, with the exception of a few token relationships and watching reruns of The Jeffersons...

US Patent 6630507: The Nail in the Drug War Coffin? By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=James_F_Davis]James F Davis

The nail in the coffin of the US War on Drugs is a medical marijuana patent owned by the federal government. At least, it should have been the fatal mistake of a dying concept, but it wasn’t. Instead, the War on Drugs has sloshed onward, buoyed largely by the predation of the government on marijuana users based on the claim that the plant has no medical value. At the very least the feds could change their argument to the reality of the situation, which essentially boils down to the idea that even if marijuana does have medical uses, the government has secured a monopoly on any potential profits.

Of co...

Where Does the Annual $50 Billion For the War on Drugs Go?
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Gloria_B._MacTaggart]Gloria B. MacTaggart

Parents all over the U.S. are fighting their own war on drugs. They move to small towns or suburban areas they think are safe, they try to live in good school districts, choose colleges that are not at the top of the party school lists, teach their kids about the dangers of drugs, and work to instill self-esteem.

Nevertheless, more and more families are coping with drug problems, regardless of where they live or what preventative actions they take. However, what they don’t understand is that to remedy the situation, they have to see the bigger picture, and take action...

Out of Africa: Albinism And The Origins Of Skin Color (A Short Synopsis)
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Muslim_Shahid]Muslim Shahid

Based on what we know from archaeological finds, genetic and fossil evidence, radiometric and carbon dating, I would have to conclude that the origins of human life began in Africa. However, I have to strongly disagree with Dr. Frances Welsing’s (1969-1974 publications) conclusions on skin color and albinism. Yet, I understand how it was possible to arrive at the conclusions that Dr. Welsing’s came to when one considers the advances made in analytical and genetic testing in the past 40 to 50 years.

Today we now know that albinism is inherited to both dark and ...
