Last Days of “Cracked-Up-Black-Buck-Runs-Amok” Law

A Black Agenda Radio commentary by Glen Ford
 
Back in 1986, the U.S. Congress crafted legislation to put as many Black crack cocaine users in prison as possible, while sparing white users of powdered cocaine. Hundreds of thousands of arrests and more than a million years in prison later, the U.S. Justice Department went on record favoring equalization of penalties on both kinds of cocaine. “Any civilized court would treat such blatantly race-based mass punishment as a crime against humanity – possibly an element in a broader charge of genocide.”

Black Farmers Confront Obama

A Black Agenda Radio commentary by Glen Ford
Of all people, it was Black farmers that dared to make the first Black president accountable for his campaign promise to them. Obama seemed to be reneging on his own legislation and statements favoring billions in payments to Black farmers methodically discriminated against by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Now, his administration wants to cap the payments at $100 million. “Right is right and it doesn’t matter who is in the White House,” said Black farmers leader John Boyd.

Blacks Get Buried Under “Shovel-Ready” Stimulus

How Democracy Works: Democratic Deceit and Denial on War, Impeachment, Health Care and Prisons

a Black Agenda Radio commentary by BAR Managing Editor Bruce Dixon
Most Americans, and most Democrats want an end to war. Most Americans favor impeachment, and when alternatives are described to them, most favor a single-payer health care system on the French or Canadian model. When Republicans captured the House and Senate in the third year of Bill Clinton's administration the media declared the president "irrelevant". Democrats won the House and Senate in 2006.  Why can't Democratic leaders do what Democratic voters elected them to?

Revolt Against the Europeans

 

A Black Agenda Radio commentary

 

by BAR Executive Editor Glen Ford

The era of Euro-American domination of the planet is coming to an end. Only the American public seems to be oblivious to this reality. However, five hundred years of white rule over almost the whole of the planet has created lasting scars on the rest of humanity - contradictions that may take generations to resolve. In the meantime, the threat of global conflagration will hover over humanity, since many Euro-Americans cannot imagine a world in which they are not in charge. But there is finally light at the end of this half a millennium-long tunnel: the subjugation of a planet by a people from a small corner of the world.

We're sorry, but the audio of this Black Agenda Radio Commentary is no longer available.
