Black Agenda Report for Sept 11, 2013: Obama Defeated, Comes Undone / CBC Minions of War / Black Shadow Budget Revealed

11 September 2013 — Black Agenda Report

This week in Black Agenda Report

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

When presidents fail, it is a public spectacle. In his rush into unprovoked war against Syria, President Obama overplayed his hand. Shortly before he appeared on television on Wednesday, “Obama’s handlers advised him that his political position was, for the time being, untenable.” But he’ll soon be back on the warpath, meaner and more aggressive than ever.

Black Agenda Report for 28 August, 2013: The "Dreamer" With a Kill List, the "Dreamer" as Zombie, Syria Enters American Hell

by BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon

Gary Younge points out that King’s “I Have A Dream” speech wasn’t offered as the penultimate moment of his career till after his death. Those who offer it were the same corporate media honchos who first elevated, then slimed and slandered King the last year of his life. “The Dreamer” too is their construct, as far from the man who lived and died as an ordinary person from a brain-eating zombie.

Black Agenda Report for 14 August 2013: Holder & Obama Playing Us on Drug War, Massive Resistance to Stop & Frisk Ruling, Fukushima

14 August 2013 — Black Agenda Report

This week in Black Agenda Report

by BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon

Once or twice a year Eric Holder and/or the president discover police brutality, racial profiling, or the injustice of the drug war, or mass incarceration. Black America gets some sound bytes of “drive-by” concern, some noises about a study or a “policy change.” But 55 months into the Obama administration, when we compare the prez and attorney general’s words with their actions, black America looks like it’s been played.  Again.

Stand Your Ground and Beyond: The Whole Criminal Justice System is Arrayed Against Blacks

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

The battle against Stand Your Ground laws must be “one front in the war against the legitimacy of a criminal justice system that is fundamentally hostile to the Black presence in the United States.” The task requires a mass Movement – one that avoids the clutches of the Black Misleadership Class, which seeks to “divert Black rage down avenues that do not threaten their own relationships with Power.” Continue reading

Obama Administration Seeks to Keep Tens of Thousands Imprisoned Under Unfair Crack VS Powder Cocaine Penalities

by BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon

Our black political class wants to feed us outrage over the case of Trayvon Martin. But for 3 years the black press, advocacy organizations and the black political class have ignored the Obama administration’s attempt to keep as many unjustly sentenced crack defendants in jail under old and unjust laws as long as possible. Why are they ignoring this, and more importantly, why are we? Continue reading

Black Agenda Report 24 July 2013: Racial Surveillance, Mass Hynosis & Trayvon Martin, TFA a Scab Temp Nonprofit

24 July 2013 — Black Agenda Report

This week in Black Agenda Report

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

In his effort to “put the angry Black genie back in the bottle” following George Zimmerman’s acquittal, President Obama once again claimed to oppose racial profiling. He’s lying. Obama has endorsed the most prolific racial profiler in the country as a potential head of Homeland Security. The president is a bulwark of the system that targets millions of Trayvon Martins.
