Millennials Not as Excited To Vote in This Presidential Election

Written by Featured Organization on Monday, 11 June 2012 17:11.

WASHINGTON, D.C., (June 6, 2012): For first-time voters, this year’s upcoming presidential election is not nearly as exciting as the last one. In a survey of 425 first-time voters from eight Washington, D.C., area universities, only 23 percent said they were “very excited” about this year’s election vs. 45 percent for the 2008 election.

discrimination-471There is much corruption when it comes to procurement.  Probably the industry with the most corruption is construction.  Keep in mind that corruption is the first cousin of discrimination which is why the establishment cringes at the thought of Black strangers coming into their territory.  They want to keep the graft private.

Street Culture vs. Church Power

Written by Bankole Thompson, Special to the NNPA from the Michigan Chronicle on Monday, 11 June 2012 16:17.

health-education-GDN-greater-diversity-newsThe Rev. Marvin Winans’ remark, “I refuse to be afraid of us,” in the wake of the robbery attack on him by four young Black men at a neighborhood gas station on Linwood and Davison, carries a moral truth is a statement deeply rooted in the belief that we cannot throw our children away or become prisoners in our own communities, afraid to go out because  young Black males have become tigers in the hood, on the prowl for their next victims. I refuse to accept the notion that there is nothing else we can do, and that the solution is to dump Detroit and move out as quickly as you can. While such reasoning is politically expedient and the common sense thing to do in a state of fear, it is not the answer to the growing socioeconomic ills facing our community. It is not the answer to halt the violence in our town.

Careers of Black Pilots at United Delayed for Takeoff

Written by Gary L. Flowers on Monday, 04 June 2012 16:35.

Last week, 24 long-term employees of United Continental Holdings, United Airlines, and Continental Airlines filed a lawsuit in San Francisco, alleging racial discrimination, retaliation and harassment in violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and state fair employment laws. I vividly remember United Airlines television commercials of the 1970s urging us to  “Fly the friendly skies of United.”  In 2012, the skies appear to be anything but friendly for Black pilots as they seek an equal opportunity to be to be promoted to the management ranks.

Written by J. Coyden Palmer, Special to the NNPA from the Chicago Crusader on Monday, 04 June 2012 16:33.

As Chicago dealt with yet another deadly weekend of violence where 10 people were killed and nearly three dozen injured, the parents of slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin were in town to talk about the impact of gun violence on communities. Speaking at the national headquarters for the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton choked back tears as they told their story of being the parents of a murdered teen.
