Today, the Dominican Republic still continues its racist and Xenophobic purging of migrant Haitians, Dominicans of Haitian descent and dark skin Dominicans, to poor to afford the proper documentation, to prove they are of Dominican ancestry.

According to relief officials, approximately fifty to a hundred people , the Dominican Republic claims to be of Haitian ancestry , are forcefully deported from the Small island nation, every day even though according to amnesty international, twenty-seven percent of the people deported, claim they were born and raised in the Dominican Republic.

AMERICAN SLAVERY 2.0 (ARTICLE )

image

BY: LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

I like so many other children in America was falsely taught in school, that the civil war (April,12, 1861to may 9, 1865) was fought to give black people freedom and that black people received that freedom from slavery after the civil war ended in 1865, when the abolitionist north won, the war.

image

Years later I would sadly learn that systematic slavery never ended after civil war, in fact the 13th amendment Was passed by the United States senate to keep a form of systematic slavery alive and well in America. On April 8, 1864, before the civil war even ended. The thirteenth Amendment states: Section #1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for a crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within, the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

Even today slavery still exist through America, legally in maximum security prisons, like the Angola prison in Louisiana or the parchman farm prison in Mississippi, just to name a couple. There prisoners are forced to work or be punished by solitary confinement, which often times makes inmates go insane, if in there for long periods of time.

Inmates are often times forced to work for free, but if they are giving any compensation, it can be as meager as two cents an hour, or 16 cents a day, which only adds up to approximately $3.20 a month, depending on the length of the month.

Currently America leads the industrialized world, with approximately 2.2 million prison inmates, which means their are more people in chains, forced to work than before the civil war and considering the racially bias justice system and racial profiling, a large percent of the inmates are black, even though blacks are make up as little as 12 percent of the United States population.

Today’s prison-slaves, often times have to do mining work, Agriculture, build military equipment and make garments for big business corporations, they same way their ancestors were forced to work the cotton fields and plantations of the antebellum slavery days.

THE DOUBLE STANDARD OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE COVERAGE IN THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA! (ARTICLE )

image

BY: LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

“Keep your damn hands to yourself” is a term that should viewed as law of the land in America, no matter your race, gender or sexual orientation, no one should be allowed to feel they can batter another person because of an argument or disagreement and not have to deal with repercussions. That being said what people should do is often the opposite of what people actually do.

Without a doubt domestic violence is a major issue in the United States, straight, bi, gay, Transgender, male, female, all these subgroups of the American population, have people in their group who have committed assault and battery on their loved ones, which proves that domestic violence is not a male vs. female issue, rather it’s a humanity issue, that needs to be addressed in the proper and educated manner.

Instead the major media corporations continue to omit the fact that men make up about 40% of domestic violence victims, in an article titled: “More than 40% of domestic violence victims are male, report reveals” by the Guardian.com and published on September 4, 2010 stated : “Data from home office statistical bulletins and the British crime survey show that men made up about 40% of domestic violence victims each year between 2004-5 and 2008-9”.

SNL SPOOF ON SOLANGE ATTACK OF JAY Z.

Instead when a woman hits a man it’s a joke on Saturday night live like when Solange Knowles , the sister of R&B/pop diva Beyonce and sister-in-law to rap legend and music mogul Jay Z, decided to punch and kick her brother-in-law in a tight elevator, while she was wearing dangerously sharp high heels.

Media companies like DISNEY/ABC/ESPN for the most part simply ignored the fact that women’s WorldCup Soccer player Hope Solo has been involved in at least two cases of domestic violence in which she was the aggressor.

The media instead downplays or ignores domestic violence committed by women to focus months on the issue of violence committed by men, especially black men, even if it was in self-defense against a crazed and violent woman, e.g. the Ray rice incident when he punched his then girlfriend/now wife in the face after she pimped slap him or the FSU quarterback De’andre Johnson, who punched a woman in a bar after she reportedly yelled racial slurs at him and is on video seen punching him .

image

Both male Football players so far have had their careers cut short, while Solange is more famous now after she attacked Jay Z and Hope Solo just won a WorldCup and is expected to be in the FIFA 2016 video game.

So to my fellow Americans, I think we can all agree that domestic violence is horrific, so lets just have one standard that domestic violence is wrong and the aggressor should be punished, no matter their sex, race or sexual orientation.

AFRICAN-AMERICAN WOMEN ARE FASTEST GROWING GROUP OF ENTREPRENEURS IN THE COUNTRY! (ARTICLE )

image

BY:LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

It is pretty safe to say that if there is ever going to be economic prosperity in the African-American community, which has not been seen since the days of “Black Wallstreet” or the “Harlem Renaissance” of the 1920’s. That economic rebirth will be fueled and powered by the African-American woman.

In the 2015 state of women-owned business report by fortune magazine stated that businesses by African-American women had grown a massive 332% since 1997.

Which means the African-American women are the fasting growing group of new entrepreneurs in America.

THE REEMERGENCE OF WHITE SUPREMACIST TERRORISM ON THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY! (ARTICLE )

image

BY : LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

In the recent week there seems to be an reemergence of white supremacists terrorism on the African-American Christian community. Terrorism not seen since the 1960’s when white supremacists would set fire to and bomb black churches like the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, which killed four children and injured others in 1963.

Just a week after white supremacist domestic terrorist Dylann Roof massacred nine African-American Christians at the historic South Carolina Emanuel AME church on june 17, six black churches have gone up in flames in the south:

1. College Hill Seventh Day Adventist in Knoxville, Tennessee

2. God’s Power Church Of Christ in Macon, Georgia

3. North Carolina’s Briar Creek Road Baptist Church

4. Grove Baptist Church in Warrenville, South Carolina

5. Fruitland Presbyterian Church in Gibson County, Tennessee

6. The Greater Miracle Temple Apostolic Holiness Church in Tallahassee, Florida

The fires are still being investigated by federal and local law enforcement and at least three are suspected to be caused by arson.

WHITE SUPREMACIST TERRORIST KILLS NINE PEOPLE IN SOUTH CAROLINA CHURCH! (ARTICLE )

image

BY: LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

In yet another case of white supremacist domestic terrorism, nine people were massacred at the historic Methodist Episopal Church, in South Carolina, during bible study, at around 9pm Wednesday night.

Luckily but not surprisingly for the good citizens of that area, the armed and dangerous white supremacist suspect Dylann Roof was arrested without a single bullet being fired by the police on Thursday morning.

Unfortunately we have to keep in mind this is not an isolated incident and is just another in a long list of domestic terrorism attacks inflicted against the black community, just to name a couple of the “Move bombing in Philadelphia in 1985” or the “TULSA RACE RIOT IN 1921”.

NAACP SPOKANE CHAPTER PRESIDENT OUTED AS WHITE! ( ARTICLE )

BY:LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

I personally don’t have an issue with a white person being head of a NAACP chapter or or any civil rights organization. In fact one of my favorite freedom fighters of all time is the white abolitionist John Brown, who killed and was killed fighting to free black slaves from his fellow white countrymen. That being said if the allegations by the mother of the president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP are true, about her daughter Rachel Dolezal being white and not black, as she portrays herself, then she should be fired for her dishonesty, and we black people should feel ashamed that a white person can easily infiltrate one of our most prestigious organizations and even make it to chapter president by getting a tan and wearing her hair in curls or braids, which I guess is not as hard as some people may think, when you think about the fact that black people still follow the outdated one drop rule, giving to us during slavery ( which states if a person has one drop of black blood, then that person is black). The fact is Mrs. Dolezal seems to be a good person that cares about the African-American community in her area, she is married to a black man and they have adopted several black kids. That is not the issue. The issue is what if she wasn’t a nice person, what if she was an undercover white supremacist, she could of helped sabotage the over 100 year old civil rights organization. This is a reminder that as an oppressed people fighting for justice and equality, we better be more selective in the people we select to lead us.

THE DEVIOUS LOBBYING DEEDS OF FOR PROFIT PRISONS! (ARTICLE )

image

BY:LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

One industry that has been able to do a lot of political lobbying on the down-low without all the backlash that oil and pharmaceutical companies receive is the for profit prison industry.

The two largest and most powerful for profit prison companies, GEO and Corrections Corporation Of America since 1989 have spent more than $10 million to support candidates that they wanted in office and have spent $25 million on various lobbying efforts.

Not surprisingly these two private prison earn $3.3 billion a year, with government prison contracts, now that the prison population has more than doubled from 2000 to 2010, a report by the justice policy institute states.

Corporate prisons now hold almost half of all illegal immigrants detainees and their are now about 130 corporate prisons nationwide.

One example of how influential these private prisons lobbies are is , while Republican Presidential candidate Marco Rubio was leading the Florida house of Representatives, GEO was awarded a state contract worth $110 million dollars, not surprisingly Rubio had currently received nearly $40,000 in campaign donations from GEO.

Private prisons also tend to lobby for laws that support their business, like California’s three-strike rule and Arizona’s highly controversial anti-illegal immigration law.

If the growing influence of private prisons continue, private prisons will become the worst accepted injustice since slavery!

UNCHARGED BUT TRAUMATIZED EX-TEEN PRISON INMATE KALIEF BROWDER KILLS HIMSELF! ( ARTICLE )

image

BY: LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

Kalief Browder, who was a young New York man of only 22, killed himself on Saturday.

The young man suffered mentally for years after spending three in Rikers prison without charge, since he was 16, even though there was no proof he committed the crime he was accused of (stealing a backpack) and the person who accused him of the crime, repeatedly changed his story. At Rikers he became traumatized after he was not only beaten by prison gangs and prison guards, but he also suffered two years of solitary confinement, which often times makes inmates go insane, if in there for an extended amount of time.

He attempted to get mental health treatment several times while in prison, but was always denied.
