Professor Hugh Gusterson of The George Washington University clearly lays out how US foreign policy comes back to haunt black & poor Americans:


"In its use of drones for counterinsurgency, then, the United States has melded the paradigms of war and law enforcement to its convenience and given itself an overly generous license to kill. Meanwhile at home, U.S. domestic police forces are also increasingly integrating the paradigms of law enforcement and counterinsurgency with the result that people like Scott, stopped for a tail-light violation, end up dead. According to the New York Times, under a program that transfers military equipment to local law enforcement, U.S. police departments—often serving communities of less than 100,000—have since 2006 taken possession of $4.3 billion worth of military equipment ... U.S. policing, in other words, is increasingly seen by the police themselves as a form of counterinsurgency, designed to control hostile populations whose lives lack value. As if they were operating in Iraq or Afghanistan, U.S. police infiltrate and spy on adversary networks, stop and search people at will, and bust down doors in the middle of the night with guns drawn."

I was reading the book A Theory of the Drone by the French philosopher Grégoire Chamayou when I heard that yet another American black man had been killed by a white police officer, this time in South Carolina. Actually, “killed” is too generic a word. In the video of the incident, ...

"Profoundly personal and thought provoking, 'Requiem For The American Dream' is a potent reminder that power ultimately rests in the hands of the governed - and is required viewing for all who maintain hope in a shared stake in the future."

The documentary has its first screening at Tribeca on April 18th. Watch the trailer below:

Noam Chomsky is one of America's most important thinkers, critical minds, and voices of dissent, and thus it's hardly a surprise that his gripping ideas have be

This is key to understanding the #IranTalks:

The Deutsche Bank-Lockheed exchange “underscores a longstanding truism of the weapons trade: war — or the threat of war — is good for the arms business,” says William Hartung, director of the Arms & Security Project at the Center for International Policy. Hartung observed that Hewson described the normalization of relations with Iran not as a positive development for the future, but as an “impediment.” “And Hewson’s response,” Hartung adds, “which in essence is ‘don’t worry, there’s plenty of instability to go around,’ shows the perverse incentive structure that is at the heart of the international arms market.”
Not to worry, replies Lockheed CEO, a deal really isn't likely to happen anytime soon — and even if it does, there's plenty of war to keep profits high.

Para celebrar o aniversário ‪#‎Globo50Anos‬, nada melhor do que o clássico documentário do canal inglês Channel 4 News "Além do Cidadão Kane". Apesar de ter sido exibido em 1994, esse meticuloso trabalho jornalístico segue relevante e atual. Fundamental pra entender não só a Rede Globo, mas a própria sociedade brasileira.

I used to cut my hair there when I was a student at the LSE. They had a polish hairdresser, Sylvia, who was amazing. Nobody had ever been able to manage well my curls, and she did! One day, I went back and she was gone. I have tried calling them and sending e-mail, but they would never tell me how I can reach Sylvia. The place is not the same without Sylvia, the best hairdresser for curly hair I have ever seen. Please if anyone knows where she is working, let me know.
