In the spirit of the season.

Something we Chican@s need to remember is that our history and the history of African Americans are intertwined. Los pueblos unidos jamás serán vencidos.

The following is a summary & analysis of Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review article, “Law of the Noose: A History of Latino Lynching” by Richard Delgado. SUMMARY Delgado attempts to shed light on a largely unknown history of Latinos, particularly Mexican-Americans in the Southwest U.S., who were lynched between the years of 1846 and 1925. This is roughly the same time that many Blacks were lynched in the U.S., as well. While ma...

+Marie Camacho funny, I randomly learned about Black Mexicans...my colleague in the 1990s told me about wherever he was from (Veracruz, I think), Guerrero, and marimbas over lunch one day.  I knew about the instruments, but not much else

Have you all been following this? What are your thoughts? I had a disagreement with someone about who thought people were just being unnecessarily hateful and full of rage. side eye
Many fans had their faith in Ani DiFranco restored today when she finally said "I'm sorry" — while many fans lost faith in much of Ani's fanbase, who continue insisting she did nothing wrong.

I just have to remember to do that myself when I get in situations that warrant it. :/ I'm guilty as hell of not being able to back down sometimes. Pride is a real bitch. :/

Just in case anyone thought racial segregation was a thing of the past:  It is alive and well in Dallas, Texas.

"Hey, I think I have waited about long enough for The Dallas Morning News to weigh in on the racial segregation complaint lodged against Dallas by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban development in early December. A month. Even allowing for Santa Claus and all, a month seems a bit long for the city's only daily newspaper to acknowledge the most important national story about Dallas since Larry Hagman died.

Could it be ... no! ... that the ownership of the paper is a bit chary of where this story might go, if they were to go somewhere with it? Given that the core of the HUD accusation is about downtown development, and given that top executives of the paper were major players in many of the events chronicled in the HUD complaint, it couldn't be the case ... could it ... that someone might have a big fat thumb on the scales?"

I headdesked so hard I think I broke something.  Trigger warning for...everything disrespectful, racist and exploitative you can imagine.

I'm still not convinced it's not satire, that's how ridiculous this was.

Hey Dallas peeps!  Check these out:  HIV stats for Dallas county.  As of 2012, 82% of new HIV infections occurred in men of all sexual orientations.  My dears, you really must be more careful.  Please get tested regularly and please make sure your partners are too.

Just now heard about this thanks to Son of Baldwin on Facebook.
Oklahoma City Police Officer Daniel Holtzclaw, a former Eastern Michigan University football star, was arrested Thursday on serial assault charges.

Pfft! If I found out I was African I'd be tickled. People are so ridiculous. I really need to get a genetic test done.

X posted because I'm curious if anyone here has been following this. What are your thoughts on the matter?

She did finally really apologize but a lot of her fans stayed stupid.

Local elections do matter! The nation will have to be extremely careful who they vote for in the 35 senate races, 435 House races and 36 contests for governor on the ballot next fall. "Are you kidding me?" And now Paul Ryan negotiating what to ask for to get debt ceiling raised in 2014! Local elections do matter!  "Are you kidding me?" TEA-type controlled Republicans have not addressed immigration reform, tax reform, minimum wage issues and have controlled background legislation across the nation. It is going to take a ground-swell of action, organization, mobilization and energization to make changes into the future. Local elections do matter!

Have you all heard about this?
On Monday, in a case called Salinas v. Texas that hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves, the Supreme Court held that you remain silent at your peril. The court said that this is true even before you’re arrested, when the police are just informally asking questions. The court’s move to...
