Building peace from scratch: some theoretical and technological aspects. (1/146)

A peace-building process is based on activity, acceptance, understanding of political reality, communication, and empowerment. Acceptance means accepting everybody as he or she is and let each know it. This is at the heart of peace work, it is the prerequisite for effective communication, and includes accepting other even in cases of severe disagreement. Peace work requires both an understanding of political reality and the expression of one's own political opinion. Acceptance and the expression of political opinion are not at variance but complementary. Combining acceptance and understanding of the political context provides hope for real communication in which messages are both sent and received, with appreciation and interest. Empowerment implies overcoming of the feeling of powerlessness, often present in conflict by all sides and in all social groups. It includes recovery of self-respect and respect for others. Education and economic independence are important facets of the empowerment concept. Essential principles of peace-building process are responsibility, solidarity, cooperation, and nonviolence. Responsibility encompasses caring for human rights, the suffering of others, and for consequences of our own intended and unintended actions. Solidarity allows learning through listening and understanding. Even with the best intentions on both sides, cooperation may be difficult and painful. Nonviolence is a way of life.  (+info)

Defending diversity: affirmative action and medical education. (2/146)

Affirmative action programs of all types are under attack legally and politically. Although medical schools have not been specifically targeted, their affirmative action programs, like others in higher education, are potentially in danger. This article examines the current legal status of affirmative action in medical education and concludes that a refurbished defense of such programs is essential if they are to survive impending judicial and political scrutiny. An analysis of existing case law and available evidence suggests that a carefully reinvigorated diversity argument is the tactic most likely to pass constitutional muster, as well as the justification most likely to blunt growing public and political opposition to admissions policies that take race and ethnicity into consideration.  (+info)

Ethical-legal problems of DNA databases in criminal investigation. (3/146)

Advances in DNA technology and the discovery of DNA polymorphisms have permitted the creation of DNA databases of individuals for the purpose of criminal investigation. Many ethical and legal problems arise in the preparation of a DNA database, and these problems are especially important when one analyses the legal regulations on the subject. In this paper three main groups of possibilities, three systems, are analysed in relation to databases. The first system is based on a general analysis of the population; the second one is based on the taking of samples for a particular list of crimes, and a third is based only on the specific analysis of each case. The advantages and disadvantages of each system are compared and controversial issues are then examined. We found the second system to be the best choice for Spain and other European countries with a similar tradition when we weighed the rights of an individual against the public's interest in the prosecution of a crime.  (+info)

Measuring our nation's diversity: developing a common language for data on race/ethnicity. (5/146)

During the 4-year period 1993 through 1997, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) undertook a comprehensive review of the statistical standards that are used throughout the federal government to gather and publish data on race and ethnicity. The primary objective of this review was to ensure that our standards provide a common language that reflects the increasing diversity of the US population and maintains our ability to monitor compliance with civil rights laws. The review culminated with the October 1997 issuance of OMB's "Standards for Maintaining, Collecting, and Presenting Federal Data on Race and Ethnicity." In this article, we describe key aspects of the process that was undertaken to review and revise the 1977 standards. We also attempt to dispel some myths and misunderstandings that have been associated with these standards.  (+info)

Use of the Americans with Disabilities Act by persons with rheumatic diseases and factors associated with use. (6/146)

OBJECTIVE: This study examined use of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) among persons with rheumatic diseases and assessed which factors were associated with use. METHODS: A mail survey was conducted among adult patients recruited from 21 rheumatology practices. Subjects answered questions about their inclination to use the ADA in the community or at work and about factors thought to be associated with use. The outcome was stage of behavior change, the behavior being use of the ADA. Ordinal logistic regression identified independent correlates of the outcome. RESULTS: Of 631 subjects, 47% experienced an ADA-resolvable barrier to community activity, and 63% of 183 employed subjects needed a job accommodation or experienced health discrimination. However, only 7% of the full sample and 10% of the employed subgroup had used the ADA. Factors associated with use were detailed knowledge, perception of being disabled, skill in requesting use, and health professional use suggestion. CONCLUSIONS: Although many persons with rheumatic diseases experience community barriers or need workplace accommodations, they currently underutilize the ADA. Use could be enhanced by health professional suggestion and referral or by community programs designed to address the factors identified.  (+info)

From the urban to the civic: the moral possibilities of the city. (7/146)

Relating bioethics to the philosophy of the city creates the possibility for developing the field along paths not yet explored. In the Western tradition, the city has been understood as the venue for two quite different forms of activity and two different types of moral possibility. In one guise, the city is an urbs, a center of commerce, market exchange, and social individualism. In another guise, the city is a civitas or polis, the space of active democratic citizenship, equality under law, and civic virtue. As civitas, classical philosophers regarded the city as the place of moral growth and full human self-realization. These two possibilities of human moral and political experience in the city have given rise to distinct traditions of political theory--liberalism and civic republican and democratic theory. This article traces these conceptual configurations into the domain of contemporary bioethics, arguing that most work in the field has drawn on the liberal tradition and hence has been insufficiently critical of the moral paradigm of market individualism and unduly inattentive to the values of civitas and the civic tradition. It argues for the creation of a form of civic bioethics and explores some of the theoretical foundations that type of bioethics would require.  (+info)

Full parity: steps toward treatment equity for mental and addictive disorders. (8/146)

The 1996 Mental Health Parity Act requiring equal annual and lifetime dollar limits for mental health benefits is to sunset 30 September 2001. This paper reviews the impact and limitations of both this law and existing state provisions and describes recent research on the actual and projected costs associated with such laws. We contend that full parity provided within the context of managed care not only is possible, but represents a "sequential" rather than a final step toward the broader goal of achieving equity in the treatment of persons with mental and addictive disorders.  (+info)

Robert Korstad, Civil Rights Unionism: Tobacco Workers and the Struggle for Democracy in the Mid-Twentieth South (University of North Carolina Press, 2003). Robert Korstads Civil Rights Unionism is a gripping and important account of the rise and fall of Local 22 of the Food, Tobacco, Agricultural, and Allied Workers of America-CIO between 1943 and 1950. Local 22 represented over 10 000 tobacco manufacturing workers at R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company and several independently-owned leaf processing plants in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Korstad argues that Local 22s predominately black membership transformed the union into a vehicle for civil rights activism linking the struggle for higher wages with political and social freedom. This labor-based civil rights movement could not withstand the Cold War conservative backlash and lost a decertification election in 1950. The demise of Local 22, according to Korstad, deprived the labor movement of a broad vision of social change and the civil rights ...
WASHINGTON - February 11, 2008 - National Education Association President Reg Weaver discussed the role of labor unions in the development of the civil rights movement in a speech today before government workers. Weaver delivered the keynote speech to approximately 350 attendees at the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Womens and Fair Practices Departments 2008 Civil Rights Luncheon. "The labor movement has fought for fair wages, fair treatment in the workplace, and a fair chance to get ahead," said Weaver. "The labor movement has been a force for fairness in every aspect of American life - including the civil rights movement.". In his speech, Weaver recalled the efforts of Black civil rights leader A. Philip Randolph to organize sleeping car porters on passenger trains. Randolph recognized that the labor movement represented "the great masses of workers," and therefore has "the moral responsibility for its commitment to the principle of civil rights." Randolph went on to ...

For decades, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has been the focus of federal inquiries into allegations of discrimination against minorities and women both in the programs it administers and in its workforce. In addition, USDA has been and continues to be involved in large civil rights lawsuits claiming discriminatory behavior on the part of USDA, including lawsuits brought by African-American, Native American, Hispanic, and women farmers. In 2002, Congress authorized the position of the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights to, among other things, provide leadership to ensure USDAs compliance with all civil rights and related laws under all its programs.. In October 2008, we reported on management deficiencies in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights (OASCR), and included six recommendations. These recommendations call for plans to resolve discrimination complaints, ensure the quality of OASCR databases, and develop a department-level strategic plan for unifying USDA ...

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Georgia Davis Powers, a giant in the fight for civil rights in Kentucky and the first African-American woman elected to the state Senate, has died. She was 92.. She died around 3:40 a.m. Saturday at her brothers home in Louisville, said Louisvilles NAACP President Raoul Cunningham, a friend for five decades.. "When you think of civil rights in Kentucky, you have to start with Georgia Davis Powers," said Kentucky State Sen. Gerald Neal, a longtime friend and colleague who says Powers inspired him into public service.. She fought for fair housing and employment rights, became a close confidant of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., and served 21 years in the state Senate. She was soft-spoken, gracious, quick with a joke, Neal said. But in her battle for civil rights, she did not blink.. "She walked into the Legislature, a mans world, a white mans world, and she did not waver," Neal said. "She asked no quarter and gave no quarter.". Powers was born in 1923 in Washington ...

On February 10, 2011, the United States Department of Justice (Civil Rights Division, Special Litigation Section) released a letter of findings detailing the results of its investigation into the institutionalization of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Virginia. The investigation focused specifically on the Central Virginia Training Center (CVTC), an intermediate care facility for persons with developmental disabilities (ICF/DD), but also considered the statewide institutionalization of this population (DOJs involvement began as an investigation of CVTC pursuant to the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act but later expanded to include the statewide systems compliance with the ADA). The DOJ concluded that Virginia was systematically violating the Americans with Disabilities Act under the 1999 Supreme Court precedent, Olmstead v. LC, in forcing the unnecessary institutionalization of people with disabilities. The DOJ found a lack of sufficient ...

The Supreme Court under Chief Justice Earl Warren, a liberal Republican, issued Brown vs. Board of education in 1954, declaring legal segregation to be unconstitutional. It marked the culmination of a judicial movement that had been underway for a decade. It had the short-term effect of ending segregated schools in border states, and the long-term effect of ending legalized segregation in schools. Presidents Dwight Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy to a lesser degree, and Lyndon Johnson to a major degree became proactive in the Civil Rights movement. Johnson in particular built a coalition that included white churches, Jews, and labor unions, as well as many Republicans such as Everett Dirksen, to build a majority of the northern leadership in favor of action. The Democratic South filibustered but failed stop passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which ended Jim Crow, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which guaranteed federal oversight of voting rights. In 1957, Governor Orville Faubus of ...
DETROIT Rosa Parks, a black seamstress whose refusal to relinquish her seat to a white man on a city bus in Montgomery, Ala., almost 50 years ago helped touch off the civil rights movement, died yesterday. She was 92.. Her death was confirmed late last night by Dennis Archer, the former mayor of Detroit. He served as Mrs. Parks guardian.. For her act of defiance in 1955, Mrs. Parks was arrested, convicted of violating the segregation laws, and fined $10, plus a $4 court fee. In response, blacks in Montgomery boycotted the buses for nearly 13 months while mounting a successful Supreme Court challenge to the Jim Crow law that enforced their second-class status on the public bus system.. The events that began on that bus in the winter of 1955 captivated the nation and transformed a 26-year-old preacher named Martin Luther King, Jr., into a major civil rights leader. It was Mr. King, the new pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, who was drafted to head the Montgomery Improvement ...

The Rev. Fred L.

His daughter Carolyn Shuttlesworth said the cause of death was not known. Rev. Shuttlesworth had been in poor health since having a stroke four years ago.. Rev. Shuttlesworth, a Baptist minister and co-founder of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, helped establish nonviolent resistance as a central tenet of the civil rights movement, often at great personal risk.. In the early 1960s, he and other protesters were attacked with truncheons, fire hoses and dogs unleashed by Birminghams public safety commissioner, Eugene "Bull" Connor. When the images of violence were shown on television and newspaper front pages, the horrors of segregation could no longer be ignored by the rest of the nation.. Rev. ...

Human security is fundamentally concerned with helping people to deal with unforeseeable threats and sudden downturns, whether international financial crises, environmental disasters or incapacitating illnesses. In this paper I argue that NGOs, as one of the most visible sets of actors in the related fields of human development and human rights, can play a significant role in helping to achieve human security. NGOs are especially well suited to action for human security because of their size and reach, closeness to local populations, willingness to confront the status quo, and ability to address transnational threats through coalition-building. While NGOs face many obstacles in reorienting their activities explicitly towards human security, including the cyclical nature of the aid monies on which many of them depend and the high costs of networking, I argue that the human security framework will nonetheless attract many NGOs to its approach.

Hickox made international news in October of that year when she returned from treating Ebola patients in Sierra Leone and was forced to go into quarantine in an isolation tent in New Jersey after her plane landed in the United States. New Jersey officials released her to allow her to go to Fort Kent, where her boyfriend was living while attending school.. Maine officials asked a state judge to impose a home quarantine on Hickox, but the judge refused and instead instituted three restrictions on Hickox, who never developed any symptoms of the deadly virus and twice tested negative for Ebola..

On July 22, 2013, attorneys from United States Department of Justice Civil Rights Division (DOJ) filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against the State of Florida. The DOJ alleged that nearly two hundred children with disabilities were unnecessarily segregated from their communities and the general population by the State, which had placed them in nursing homes. The DOJ sought an injunction requiring the State to comply with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), 42 U.S.C. § 12131-12134, which, as interpreted by the Supreme Court in Olmstead v. L.C., 527 U.S. 581 (1999), forbids the unnecessary institutionalization of disabled individuals, and mandates that their rehabilitative and medical needs be provided in a manner that enables disabled individuals to be independent and integrated members of the community. The federal regulations implementing the ADA require that disabled recipients of government benefits receive those benefits in ...
After a decade of courtroom losses, convicted killer Henry Skinner won big Monday when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a 6-3 decision that he could use a federal civil rights law to pursue his goal of obtaining DNA testing for knives, an ax handle and other crime-scene evidence. Sentenced to die for the 1993 Pampa murders of his live-in girlfriend and her two adult sons, Skinner repeatedly has tried through state and federal filings to have the untested items examined. Skinner, who began his prison career in 1988 with a five-year sentence for auto theft, said he had ingested a large quantity of alcohol and codeine before a 1993 New Years Eve party and was physically incapable of committing the murders. Skinners case became an international cause célèbre among death penalty opponents after Chicago journalism students said they had found new witnesses and drew attention to the untested death scene items. Federal claims for DNA testing typically take the form of habeas corpus petitions, the goal of
In Glenn Becks "Restoring Honor" rally last week, held on the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.s 1963 "I Have a Dream" speech, Beck claimed that he and his Tea Party followers would "take back the civil rights movement." While Kings speech led Congress to pass the landmark 1964 Civil Rights Act, Becks movement could lead to that Acts abolishment. Although Beck has not publicly called for overturning the 20th centurys greatest piece of equality-advancing legislation, the libertarian philosophy he espouses is at odds with the way the 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination by private businesses. While Beck did not clearly state how he would reclaim the civil rights movement (he asserted that his rally was nonpolitical and aimed at "restoring Americas traditional values") other leading libertarian right-wingers have called for abolishing some of the Acts most important elements, saying they constitute unnecessary government interference with the market. While undoing the Civil ...

Parks arrest on December 1, 1955 launched the Montgomery Bus Boycott by 17,000 black citizens. A Supreme Court ruling and declining revenues forced the city to desegregate its buses thirteen months later. Parks became an instant icon, but her resistance was a natural extension of a lifelong commitment to activism. Over the years, she had repeatedly disobeyed bus segregation regulations. Once, she even had been put off a bus for her defiance. Rosa Louise McCauley spent the first years of her life on a small farm with her mother, grandparents and brother. She witnessed night rides by the Kus Klux Klan and listened in fear as lynchings occurred near her home. The family moved to Montgomery; Rosa went to school and became a seamstress. She married barber Raymond Parks in 1932, and the couple joined the Montgomery ...

Landmark Legislation Still Holds Significance for Millions of Americans. TAMPA, Fla. - Several government agencies will join forces on July 2 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon B. Johnsons signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced today. The landmark legislation, which outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin, was envisioned and drafted by President John F. Kennedy in 1963 and was enacted in 1964 following his assassination.. The EEOCs Tampa Field Office will join the Hillsborough County Office of Community Affairs and the City of Tampas Office of Human Rights to host an event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the passage of the law. The event will be held at the John F. Germany Library Auditorium, located at 900 North Ashley Street in downtown Tampa.. "Many people fought and worked exceedingly hard for the legal protections men and women of all races, religion, ...
Music fade in…..). Mary Lou Breslin, Demonstrator: I really believe that 504 and the ADA have had the most profound social policy impact on the U.S. of any civil rights or social policy legislation, perhaps ever. I believe that the fabric of the country is changing with respect to its perception and awareness and attitudes about disability as a result of these laws, and that the architectural face of the country is changing permanently.. Demonstrator: I showed up at the United Nations Plaza on the day of the demonstration, basically to show my support to my community, and I was not sure what was going to happen that day. I played it by ear, and I ended up going into the building on that day, and I didnt come out until the last day.. Ken Stein, Demonstrator: We were very conscious that history was being made, that if there was a Stonewall of the disability rights movement, if there was a Birmingham bus boycott of the disability rights movement, this was it.. Corbett OToole, Demonstrator: I ...
I dispute the idea that we all have the same rights and freedoms. Instead, I say we have a Thought Police.. From where I am standing, it looks to me like the Alt-Right community has been denied those rights and freedoms for decades. We are subjected to harassment by our political enemies. We have to put up with employment discrimination. We are routinely denied access to public accommodations like renting hotel conference rooms for political reasons. We are denied the right to assemble. The Left has even recently taken to debating whether or not we should be subjected to vigilante violence in the streets.. Why should I believe in the concept of "civil rights"? The Civil Rights Movement was supposed to be about securing "civil rights" for the black community, which is to say, ending employment discrimination, vigilante violence like lynchings, opening up public accommodations like access to hotel rooms. Fifty years later, the same people who champion "civil rights" have changed their position, ...
The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is pushing back against fellow African-American Christians who have accused her of hijacking the civil rights movement for her own political agenda - namely to protect the unborn.. "It is absolutely ludicrous that abortion supporters would accuse a blood relative of Dr. King of hijacking the King legacy," Dr. Alveda King said in a statement Thursday. "My dad and my uncle gave their lives to ensure that the day would come when blacks would be judged not by the color of their skin, but the content of their character. If they were here, I know they would stand with me in this fight for the lives of those most vulnerable among us.". Her comments were in response to statements made by the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice at a press conference Thursday. The coalition denounced the "religious right" for "disparaging clinics that provide abortion, birth control and reproductive health services.". "It insults the intelligence and values of African ...

Lillie M. Carroll Jackson, an African American civil rights leader, dynamic director of the Maryland NAACP, and activist, was born on this date in 1889 in Baltimore. She was the seventh of eight children born to Charles Henry and Amanda Bowen Carroll. Her father was Methodist minister Charles Henry Carroll. Lillie Jackson was educated in Baltimores Colored High School and graduated in 1908. After high school, she taught in the Black school system in Baltimore. She met her husband, Keiffer Jackson, during this time, while singing soprano in the choir of the Sharp Street Baptist Church, and they were married in 1910. She traveled with him, singing and lecturing, while he showed his films to church groups. After the birth of their first child, Virginia, the Jacksons returned to Baltimore. According to family lore, Lillies commitment to fighting segregation began with a medical crisis in 1918. Before emergency surgery for mastoiditis, Lillie prayed to God to spare her life so she might raise her ...

Factor Four of Eleven Additional Factors, Worker Classification Test under Civil Rights Law to assist in determining if a worker is an employee or independent contractor.
Im just disappointed in the system," Mr. Hicks said. "Larry had great ideas, but he got caught up in the trap.". There is always a "trap"-always someone else to blame. That resolute avoidance of personal responsibility, writ large, must be a major part of the citys problems. But such cultural and moral concerns are not part of the current civil rights agenda. Much more important was a program through which Mayor Langford provided laptops to children, in all government schools, in first through fifth grade.. An MIT study found that the results of this social policy were "disappointing." Ownership of the free government laptops "did not increase use of computers for academic or content-creation purposes." The MIT study further found that school-related laptop use somehow unbelievably actually decreased after students were given the free laptops: "The frequency with which students used a computer to create or listen to podcasts, do research, or do homework all decreased slightly from the pretest ...
Its time to set the record straight on what the civil rights movement was really about versus what progressives and radicals want you to think it was about. It was about human rights. But let me show you how the movement has been perverted and distorted. Youve got folks like the Rev. Al Sharpton telling everyone that Martin Luther Kings dream was really about redistributing wealth: (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) REV. AL SHARPTON: Someone was saying to me the other day, Reverend Sharpton, weve got an African-American president. Weve achieved the dream of Dr. King. And I told him, that was not Dr. Kings dream. Hes a great man. Ive been working with the president and supported the president. But the dream was not to put one black family in the White House. The dream was to make everything equal in everybodys house. (END VIDEO CLIP) Youve got the NAACP telling everyone that King was a socialist and that we wouldnt be celebrating Martin Luther King Day if we really knew who he was. Listen closely to ...
Jerrys Kids. The Special Olympics. A blind person with a bundle of pencils in one hand and a tin cup in the other. An old woman being helped across the street by a Boy Scout. The poster child, struggling bravely to walk. The meager, embittered life of the wheelchair-bound. For most Americans, these are the familiar, comfortable images of the disabled: benign, helpless, even heroic, struggling against all odds and grateful for the kindness of strangers. Yet no set of images could be more repellent to people with disabilities. In No Pity: People with Disabilities Forging a New Civil Rights Movement, Joe Shapiro of U.S. News & World Report tells of a political awakening few nondisabled Americans have even imagined. There are over 43 million disabled people in this country alone; for decades most of them have been thought incapable of working, caring for themselves, or contributing to society. But during the last twenty-live years, they, along with their parents and families, have begun to recognize that

When the Civil Rights Act became law in 1964, there were pockets of Southern Baptists working for racial justice and equality. On the legislations 50th anniversary, Baptist leaders are celebrating the fact that those pockets of activism have blossomed into a convention-wide emphasis on multiethnic cooperation to fulfill the Great Commission.
Two DMV service centers on Madisons west side, at Sheboygan Avenue and Odana Road, are being closed and consolidated into a singular service center at 8417 Excelsior Drive this month. While the soon-to-be-defunct service centers are directly on Metro Transits bus lines, the new Excelsior Drive service center will not be directly accessible by public transit.. On January 3rd, Norman Davis, the Director of Madisons Department of Civil Rights, filed a formal complaint against the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to the Federal Transit Administration. The crux of the complaint alleges that the Wisconsin Department of Transportations decision to "close, combine, and relocate two DMV service centers on the west side of Madison… disparately impacts racial minorities and disabled persons who live near the service centers, and for those who rely on public transit to obtain DMV services.". This is particularly important as an issue of accessibility for those who may be getting a license for ...

Comments: The Department of Education stated that it already analyzes its civil rights data in some of the ways we recommended, and in light of our recommendation, will consider whether additional analysis could augment their core civil rights enforcement mission. Education noted that it often uses the type of analyses GAO recommended, when appropriate, to inform its internal civil rights investigations, and makes the data available to researchers and other stakeholders outside the agency. While these efforts are encouraging, our recommendation emphasizes that the agency itself more routinely use the civil rights data across key data elements to help it identify disparities and patterns among groups and types of schools. Such an analysis could enhance the agencys current efforts and ultimately improve the agencys ability to target oversight and technical assistance to the schools that need it most. Education reported that this recommendation would be implemented by September 15, 2017. At that ...
Introduction. History Civil Rights Coursework Sources Questions Question 1: In September 1957, Elizabeth Eckford had applied to go to an all-white school, and she had been granted a place, but she still had a battle to fight. The evening before she was to go to the school, the governor of Arkansas announced that with black children in the school, it would be impossible to keep law and order. When she tried to gain access to the school, along with about 8 other black children, a crowd surrounded her and stopped her from getting in. Even the guard refused to let her past. In the end, she did not manage to get to school, and finally, she was escorted in by paratroopers sent by J.F. Kennedy. In source A (written by Elizabeth Eckford), racism is clearly shown. There are seemingly normal people, but they are acting in a very strange way - going hysterical just because someone of a different race is trying to get into their school. They are chasing a 15 year old girl away from a school just because ...
Returning to the notion of respect, Edwards said, "Liberal whites hate America, the police and blacks. Through decades of indoctrination by their liberal white masters that run the school systems, blacks have been deprogrammed to reality and intellectual development. When liberals and communists gradually wormed their way into education, they pretended to be on the side of blacks. Now, at liberal colleges, theyre turning students against the police.". The implications are obvious.. "Liberals are teaching todays youth, especially blacks, a hatred for positive authority," he said. "They want to dethrone America as a great nation by bringing down the father, positive male role models and the police. Theyre weakening our nation by deliberately creating discord and division.". Furthering his analysis, Edwards added: "The black community has been used as an experimental Petri dish on how to destroy our nation. Civil rights leaders like Sharpton have destroyed in blacks the ideas of family, work and ...
Tafeni L. English is the director of the SPLCs Civil Rights Memorial Center (CRMC) in Montgomery, Alabama. The CRMC is an interpretive center that provides visitors with a deeper understanding of the civil rights movement and includes the Civil Rights Memorial, which honors 40 men, women and children killed during the movement.

She has a bachelors degree in marketing from Troy University, where she also earned a masters degree in counseling and ...
Branchs talk will focus on reinterpreting the legacy of Martin Luther King in the wake of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and how the ideals of the Civil Rights Movement can be carried on amidst concerns for national security and public safety. Branch is the award-winning writer of a multi-volume history of the Civil Rights Movement and the work of Martin Luther King, Jr.: "Parting the Waters: America in the King Years, 1954-63" and "Pillar of Fire: America in the King Years, 1963-5." These exhaustive treatments of the early history, personalities and politics of the Civil Rights Movement-representing 13 years of writing and research-have established Branch as a national authority, and he frequently advised President Clinton on racial matters and civil rights issues during his terms. Currently Branch is working on the third and final installment in this history, titled At Canaans Edge ...

In the wake of Rosa Parkss death, a mug shot of her taken during the Montgomery bus boycotts accompanied most media accounts of the civil rights pioneers life. That 1956 photo (and a similar one of Martin Luther King, Jr.) was discovered last year by a deputy cleaning out a Montgomery County Sheriffs Department storage room.

When Henry Hampton marched with Martin Luther King Jr. in 1965, he witnessed a violent clash between police and marchers that became known as Bloody Sunday. That moment inspired Hampton to create the 1987 documentary television series Eyes on the Prize, widely considered to be the quintessential film account of the civil rights movement. Series producer Jon Else says Hampton was determined to put the ordinary, Southern black folks into the forefront of their own story. In his new book

Its not the lives vs. liberties part that works me up -- there probably is a real trade-off in there somewhere. What irks me is portraying concerns about the Patriot Act, indefinite detentions without trial, and eavesdropping outside of the normal separation of powers checks and balances as "concern for the civil liberties of terrorists". I am sure that there is a name for this kind of semantic trick, though I cant remember it, but I will say its bush league, right out of high school debate. You could just as easily stump for repeal of the fourth amendment because it is only concerned with the "civil liberties of criminals".. No one except a few crazies cares much for the civil rights of convicted criminals and terrorists. After all, what could be more of a violation of their civil rights than incarcerating them, but I have seldom seen a bond issue for more prisons that people wont vote for.. No, the problem is with the civil rights of the rest of us who are innocent. We dont want our email ...
Fox Business Channel host and commentator John Stossel says a key portion of the Civil Rights Act should be eliminated, because, he says, "[p]rivate businesses ought to get to discriminate." (Media Matters 5/20/2010; Media Matters 9/7/2010) The 1964 Civil Rights Act (see July 2, 1964), signed into law by then-President Lyndon Johnson, prohibits discrimination in public places, provides for the integration of public schools and other public facilities, and makes employment discrimination illegal. (Media Matters 9/7/2010; National Archives 2011) Stossel, a guest on Fox Newss America Live, tells host Megyn Kelly that he agrees with libertarian Rand Paul, a Republican candidate for the US Senate, in recommending that the portion of the Civil Rights Act mandating no discrimination in public places should be repealed. (Both Paul and Stossel argue that the Americans with Disabilities Act should also be repealed-see May 17, 2010 and September 1, 2010). Paul has said: "[Y]ou should let businesses decide ...

Furthering the debate, Brazils representative agreed that establishing the "basic contours" of the concept of human security was a major challenge, but said that, while references had been made to rising food prices, gender violence, climate change and the Millennium Development Goals, he was not sure how evolving a concept of human security advanced efforts to tackle those issues. How would it make the United Nations more efficient in tackling those problems from a practical perspective? And while a possible answer could be that those challenges related to the individual as the subject of inalienable rights, that view begged the question of what value the concept of human security could add to the current regime of international human rights treaties.. ...
Since a multi-dimensional crisis in Mali came to a head in 2012, the country has seen a myriad of international interventions to re-establish stability and legitimate governance.. While much of the international engagement emphasised military intervention and peacekeeping from 2012, GPPACs network member the West Africa Network for Peacebuilding (WANEP) had pointed to underlying root causes as early warning signals already before the crisis.. In a consortium led by WANEP, GPPAC and Human Security Collective have supported the efforts to strengthen local civil society groups to play a role in supporting mediation efforts, fostering resilient societies and countering violent extremism through a human security approach. This project has supported WANEP in building a national civil society network in Mali, and to enable its members to formulate and upscale a human security strategy.. As part of this collaboration, GPPAC connects the civil society network with the international policy arena, to ...

On June 3, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to take on the question of whether states (and instruments of the state) are immune from copyright infringement liability under the doctrine of sovereign immunity.1. It is well established that under the Eleventh Amendment that neither states nor instrumentalities of the state may be sued in federal court unless the state or instrumentality waives its sovereign immunity or Congress enacts a law to override it. Congress attempted to do the latter when it passed the Copyright Remedy Clarification Act of 1990 (CRCA). However, nearly every court that has considered the issue since has concluded that the CRCA is unconstitutional.2. The courts have found Congress did not have the constitutional authority to enact the CRCA for two reasons. First, although it is possible to abrogate sovereign immunity through Section Five of the Fourteenth Amendment, which authorizes Congress to protect property rights (including intellectual property rights) from state ...

One of the biggest obstacles in any medical malpractice case is "discovery." Discovery is the portion of a lawsuit in which each side gathers information before trial. In a medical malpractice case, this involves gathering expert testimony from other physicians, obtaining patient records, and getting the details of the negligent actions that caused injury.. Hospitals and doctors often fight discovery requests tooth and nail. They are very reluctant to disclose information for fear of revealing negligent actions on the part of the hospital or physician. This means that often, the most important part of a medical malpractice lawsuit occurs during discovery.. In the case before the Illinois Supreme Court, the issue is whether the states Data Collection Act and the Health Care Quality Improvement Act allow a hospital to refuse to give over documents regarding physician credentials. The case arose after a doctor at the hospital allegedly botched a gallbladder surgery that ended up causing ...
