The more I look around today, the more I feel that the men (and it is always men) being presented to us as black leaders or that the media claims are black leaders do not really qualify as such.

The Myth of “Equality” Feminists

Posted by Jack Stephens on February 13, 2007

On the blog feministing.com Jessica blogs about conservative women whom call themselves feminists:

I just lurve women that call themselves things like “equality feminists.” Or “conservative feminists.” These are ladies who doth protest a bit too much about how they trust and respect women—all while bashing the hell out of them. (Or as the ever-brilliant Ms. Marcotte said recently, “’equality feminists’ are for equality if you think ‘equality’ is synonymous with ‘looks good with the boot on her neck.’”)

Anti-Terror Laws in El Salvador

Posted by Jack Stephens on February 13, 2007

Leftspot Blog has a post on the anti-terror law protests in El Salvador:

Wednesday morning hundreds of students at the University of El Salvador marched against the “anti-terrorism law” that passed last year that basically outlaws most acts of protest, since in the demented eyes of the right wing government, organizing for social change is terrorism. The students characterized the “anti-terrorism law” as “unconstitutional and it generates more repression and violence.”

Gaps

Posted by Jack Stephens on February 13, 2007

Krish blogs about the large disparities between Blacks and whites in America.  This is an older post but worth linking:

  • Unemployment among blacks is more than double that for whites, 10.8 percent versus 5.2 percent in 2003 — a wider gap than in 1972.
  • Black infant mortality is also greater today than in 1970. In 2001, the black infant mortality rate was 14 deaths per 1,000 live births, 146 percent higher than the white rate. The gap in infant mortality rates was 37 percent less in 1970.
  • African Americans had 55 cents in 1968. Thirty-three years later, in 2001, the gap had only closed by two cents. The report notes that, at this pace, it would take 581 years to achieve income parity.
