Race Riots are Back: White Girl Bleed a Lot.
A New book from Washington Post-award winning reporter Colin Flaherty
Race riots are back.
Along with widespread racial crime and violence.
In hundreds of episodes in more than 50 cities since 2010, groups of black people are roaming the streets of America -- assaulting, intimidating, stalking, threatening, vandalizing, stealing, shooting, stabbing, even raping and killing.
But local media and public officials are silent. Crime is color blind, says a Milwaukee police chief. Race is not important, a Chicago newspaper editor says.
Result: Few know about it. Fewer still are talking about it.
(DETROIT)- In a decision that’s expected to send shockwaves through the African-American community—and yet, give much relief to teachers everywhere—a federal judge ruled today that black women no longer have independent naming rights for their children. Too many black children—and many adults—bear names that border on not even being words, he said.
Few stepped forward to defend black women—and black women themselves seemed relieved.
“It’s so hard to keep coming up with something unique,” said Uneeqqi Jenkins, 22, an African-American mother of seven who survives on public assistance. Her children are named Daryl, Q’Antity, Uhlleejsha, Cray-Ig, Fellisittee, Tay’Sh’awn and Day’Shawndra.
Cabrera’s ruling exempted black men because so few of them are actually involved in their children’s lives.
"I like the slide because it curves," said 12-year-old Idylwild Elementary School student Shitavius Showers. "I also like it because its colors are orange and blue."
Quinishia Lewis was in awe of the new playground.
Shitavious J. Cook, 15, was arraigned Thursday morning on his charges, punishable by up to life imprisonment.
