Prostitution: One of Welfare Reform’s Unintended Consequences

Written by Kenneth J. Cooper on Monday, 23 April 2012 16:31.

While waiting in my car for a funeral repast to begin at a fraternal function hall, I noticed two young women, in their late teens or early 20s, lounging together on a stone wall at the edge of a large neighborhood park.

Would Zimmerman Have Been Arrested Sooner if Trayvon Had Been White?

Written by George E. Curry on Monday, 16 April 2012 17:58.

WASHINGTON (NNPA) – African-Americans are more than twice as likely as non-Blacks to believe that if 17-year-old Trayvon Martin had been White, his killer would have been arrested rather than set free, according to a new USAToday/Gallup Poll. Martin was killed by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch captain, as he was walking back to a townhouse in Sanford, Fla. on Feb. 26 with a bag of Skittles and a can of Arizona tea. Zimmerman, described by police as White and pictured by relatives as Latino, was taken into custody for questioning and then released.
