Native Americans & Black Farmers Compensated With $4.2 Billion Dollars By The U.S Congress For Discrimination

December 1, 2010 2 comments

CBS News – The House on Tuesday passed landmark legislation to pay for some $4.6 billion in settlements with American Indians and black farmers who say they faced discrimination and mistreatment from the government.

Steve King is a racist bigot simple and plain.

Lawmakers voted 256-152 to send the measure to President Barack Obama, whose administration brokered the settlements over the past year. Continue Reading…

Congress has passed a bill to settle discrimination and mistreatment cases filed against them on behalf of Native Americans and Black Farmers.

The Black Farmers were given $1.2 billion dollars from a lawsuit that was settled 11 years ago in 1999.

Native Americans were given $3.4 billion dollars for Indian water-rights violations and royalties owed to them.

Iowa Republican Steve King expressed resentment towards the legislation. He compared the settlements to ‘slavery reparations.

Steve King’s exact words were “We are not gonna pay slavery reparations in the United States Congress…That war’s been fought. That was over a century ago. That debt was paid for in blood and it was paid for in the blood of a lot of Yankees, especially. And there’s no reparations for the blood that paid for the sin of slavery.”

The worst thing about King’s statement is that this bill has absolutely nothing to do with slavery. African-Americans everywhere are still waiting for the 4o acres that was promised to them. The government can keep the mules!!

Even though the bill passed with a good margin, hatred is still very much alive in our Congress and government.

Haiti’s Earthquake Occured 8 Months, 17 Days ago & Not A Cent Has Been Spent On Reconstruction

George Bush & Bill Clinton In Haiti Doing The Routine

Huffington Post – Nearly nine months after the earthquake, more than a million Haitians still live on the streets between piles of rubble. One reason: Not a cent of the $1.15 billion the U.S. promised for rebuilding has arrived.

The money was pledged by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in March for use this year in rebuilding. The U.S. has already spent more than $1.1 billion on post-quake relief, but without long-term funds, the reconstruction of the wrecked capital cannot begin. Continue Reading…

Haiti’s earthquake occurred on Jan. 12, 2010, which was 8 months and 17 days ago today.

Not a penny of the $1.15 billion dollars pledged has been spent on Haiti.

The Haitian people have been struggling to receive shelter, food, and medical attention for 8 months and 17 days.

The Obama administration did the usual ‘song & dance’ after the earthquake. Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, George Bush, Michelle Obama & Barack Obama all visited Haiti to express their “genuine” care for the impoverished, tragedy-strucken nation.

The media gave Haiti plenty of hype with on-site reporting, tribunals and directly showed how dire the situation and environment of Haiti was.

But it has been 8 months & 17 days since the earthquake hit Haiti. Where is the media at now?? The situation is just as bad over there. A recent storm in Haiti killed 6 and injured over 100 as shelters were ruined.

Do these politicians really want us to believe they won’t sign off because they believe a measly $5 million dollars out of the $1.15 billion dollars pledged will be wasteful??

They blame it on bureaucracy, disorganization and a lack of urgency. But it’s more simple than that.

The U.S government simply doesn’t give a fuck about Haiti and it’s woes. An independent black nation in the Caribbean is of no use to the United States.

Why the f*ck cant the people of Haiti get some long-term reconstruction money?

I can go on and on. But this broken promise made by our president, Barack Obama, should sum it all up.

Candidate For Congress Says He Has A Higher Security Clearance That Obama

September 28, 2010 1 comment

Barack Obama Is The Man

Tea Party backed republican candidate, Allen West, says “i have clearance that even the president cannot obtain because of my background.”

More security clearance than the president? WTF is this guy smoking on??

When I first saw this story I was almost Positive I would see an old white man talking shit about the Barack Obama.

To my surprise, Allen West is a relatively young black military man and he is running for Congress in Florida’s 22nd district.

I don’t think anyone has more security clearance than the president, but if someone does, it damn sure wouldn’t be another black man or someone “trying” to get into Congress.

Memo to Allen West: It’s a damn shame your running for congress. And quit hating on the Commander In Chief!

Muslims Are The New Niggers

Employee Discrimination Against Muslims

NY Times – At a time of growing tensions involving Muslims in the United States, a record number of Muslim workers are complaining of employment discrimination, from co-workers calling them “terrorist” or “Osama” to employers barring them from wearing head scarves or taking prayer breaks. 

Such complaints were increasing even before frictions erupted over the planned Islamic center in Lower Manhattan, with Muslim workers filing a record 803 such claims in the year ended Sept. 30, 2009. That was up 20 percent from the previous year and up nearly 60 percent from 2005, according to federal data. Continue Reading… 

I was in my freshman year of high school when 9/11 happened. I never noticed any apparent discrimination towards Muslims in my everyday life even though there aren’t many Muslims in the Boston area. 

I have since lived in NYC where there is some apparent hatred shown towards Muslims. In the last few years I have seen a resurgence in not only apparent discrimination but subtle discrimination as well. Furthermore, Muslim jokes come up in conversations more often, making fun of their religion and lifestyle. 

The United States is a racist country and the people will not discriminate who they want to show hatred for…Blacks, Jews, muslims, Asains, Natives and Hispanics can all be hated at different times in different degrees. 

African-Americans felt the brunt of this hatred for most of the 20th century but now it’s the Muslims turn. I believe Barack Obama has something to do with Muslims becoming the new “Niggers.” He is a half black and has been able to avoid any connection to African-American culture. But he hasn’t been able to avoid being connected to the Muslim faith. Polls have shown that 18% or nearly 1 in 5 Americans believe Barack Obama is a Muslim. 

Obama’s connection to the Muslim faith is making many Americans feel pressured and surrounded by the Islamic faith. These Americans, out of fear, protest the construction of mosques, discriminate against Muslims and simply reject the Islamic faith. 

Is Barack Obama a Muslim because he wore a Garb?
