When I was a teacher, we had the saying "It's an explanation, not an excuse" when referring to students' backgrounds in relation to their behaviour.  People who are reacting negatively to the violence and rioting in Baltimore need to understand why this is happening.  That understanding does not mean that you are excusing it.  No, it is neither strategically nor morally correct to respond to police violence with more violence, but if you inform yourself just a little bit, you can begin to understand why it is happening.  It is the sadly natural response of a powerless community who has been attacked their entire lives by gangs of well-armed thugs protected by the law.

What would you do if an army came in and dragged a friend of yours away for no reason, broke his back and killed him and there was nothing you could do to even find out why it happened, let alone get justice and prevent it from happening again?
When nonviolence begins halfway through the war with the aggressor calling time out, it exposes itself as a ruse.

My argument is that in essence, slavery was perpetuated as a result of very conscious choices in how to keep people as a permanent underclass.  The atrocious quality of access to education was one of those ways, as was the extreme hypocrisy of the 'war on drugs' coupled with a general negligence in allowing drug cartels and criminal-drug-culture to infect those communities and destroy their social fabric.  The welfare state as it presently appears also only serves to perpetuate a status of permanent underclass, encouraging people to have no real hope of improvement in their lives, but maintaining them just enough at a barely-subsistent level without doing anything meaningful (be it through government or through the encouragement of local economy) to allow for economic and social progress.  I don't really think our views are so far apart here.

Announcer Jim Barnett is an institution among Warriors fans. He nearly missed the long-suffering team's dream season, but instead made it better than ever.

Republicans are getting ready to beat the drums of war. Fight back!

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."
-- Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials

What would you guys say are the best examples of noir in old time radio?  Gotta guy over at the Savage Worlds community who wants to run some noir games for his wife, but isn't super familiar with the genre and wants some inspirational material.  He's getting a lot of movie recommendations, but I thought some vintage radio might be a good way to go as well.  What would you recommend that captures the cynicism and rainy streets atmosphere of Film Noir in the radio format?

Go to internet station Hardboiled OTR on LIVE365 for some great Audio Noir shows. (Use their mobile app- NOT .com)

Steph is more than an incredible athlete, he's an incredible human being. Read this. Especially the last paragraph inspiring words for all of us.
OAKLAND–Here’s the part of Stephen Curry’s moving (and long) MVP acceptance speech that I’ll remember longest: His individual tributes to his teammates. Curry thanked each Warriors PR person by name, thanked the equipment guy, the security guy, the management, his… Continue Reading →

Yup. It's indoctrination pure and simple.  But the classroom has been that way for a long time.  As far back as the 70s/80s at least; we were already told it was about fairness that as the smart children we were expected to do all the work for the dumb and/or lazy kids and then share the same grade.
