Reading on a Saturday Morning

Submitted by Roanman on Sat, 07/31/2010 - 14:04


One of the first posts at the old was also one of the first posts brought across to the new (this)

It was titled, Race, Family, Crime and Poverty.

It mostly had to do with ....... you know ....... Race, Family, Crime and Poverty.

It ends with a short discussion of and link to the famed Moynihan Report of 1965, which offers the following on the state of affairs in Black America in that year.


The evidence — not final, but powerfully persuasive — is that the Negro family in the urban ghettos is crumbling.

So anyway .......
I was poking around at Fred on Everything this morning.
And having exhausted that content which offers a laugh at the expense of Fred's frustrations and outrage over the state of the world we live in, I scrolled upon his essay titled, Rape in Tennessee.
I knew this material, having been directed to it some years ago by one of you ..... Rachel ..... maybe.
It's real damn ugly, so despite the fact that I've linked it, leave it alone, unless you're in a mood.
Anyway, after you get past the initial ugliness, Fred shares his views on Black on White crime and the way it's reported in the media. 
Among the items on Fred's long and strange resume' is a tour as the law enforcement columnist at the Washington Times.
The result of which is a point of view about race, cops, and crime that is not presented by organized media.
Fred on Everything is disorganized media.
To his credit, he's man enough to admit it.
Somewhere in the middle of all Fred's stuff, is a link to the following report.
It's very different from anything you'll get anywhere else, and that includes Fox.
Click anywhere below to link to the entire report.

And that's how I spent my Saturday morning.
