How To Teach United States History From A Black Educator’s Perspective

The writing of United States history books has been dominated by status quo educators and traditionalist leaning historians. It seems that thousands of them have written thousands of books with very little diversity of philosophical perspective and even less regard for a host of uncomplimentary facts. If someone should voice the opinion that United States history books read like a conspiracy of white power mythologists, he or she could turn to a mountain of evidence for support. No country’s history is as reproachless as traditionalists make that of the United States of America seem when they write and teach United States history.

But the perspective of the traditionalist educators is now being challenged. One book that looks at United States history from less than a complimentary perspective is Mba Mbulu’s An Introduction to White History: The History of White America. Unlike many historians of American history, Mba Mbulu supplements his university studies with years of independent research, and is able to present a picture of American history that will be met with such …read more

My Black Urban Vertical: African-Americans and Web 2.0

Submit the words “Blacks,” or “African Americans,” in combination with “Long Tail” to the Google or Yahoo search engine, and discover quickly how finding the most relevant topical information sometimes can be elusive even for the Internet savvy. One might reasonably conclude that although African Americans represent 12% of the U.S. population, or 38 million individuals, they are nevertheless often a long-tail play when it comes to online search. “Long tail” is a reference to a phrase coined by writer Chris Anderson in his October 2004 article of the same title in Wired Magazine. The hotly debated premise of Anderson’s article is that the Internet has lowered the costs of distribution to the point that it now makes sense for merchants to address the pent up demand of niche groups for better tailored goods and services.

Supply and Demand or Heads and Tails?

Driving While Black

Was it November 2006 or March 1991? Was it Rodney King all over again? The recent murder of Sean Bell by New York police officers and the Taser shooting of Houston Texans offensive lineman, Fred Weary, have some wondering were the attacks racially motivated.

For African Americans, being the victims of racial profiling is nothing new, but the tactics used by police to justify excessive force against minorities recently hit an all time low as officers attempted to assassinate the character of Sean Bell and Fred Weary, the latest victims of police brutality.

On November 25, 2006, New York City police officers fired 50 shots into a car driven by Sean Bell, 23, hours before he was to marry Nicole Paultre. Police critically wounded passengers Joseph Guzman and Trent Benefield in the shooting.

Bell and his friends were celebrating his bachelor party at the Kalua Cabaret, a club under investigation for alleged criminal activities.

According to eyewitness reports, the three men allegedly got into an argument with other patrons at the club and decided to leave the cabaret.

Based on police reports, the undercover officers investigating the atmosphere at …read more

Black History Month we Salute General William E. “Kip” Ward, U.S. Commander, United States Africa Command

During Black History Month we salute all of our military men and women serving our country. On January 30, 2010, CNN conducted a live interview with General William E. Ward, commander of U.S. Africa Command, discussing his experiences as the only black four-star general currently serving in the U.S. military. “I look at it as a chance to demonstrate that you can achieve those things if you set your mind to them, if you apply yourself in productive ways, if you’re prepared to accept opportunity that comes your way and then move on,” Ward said during the interview. He was also asked about U.S. Africa Command’s role in the Haiti disaster relief efforts. Ward explained that an Africa Partnership Station vessel that was en route to West Africa for military-to-military training events was diverted to Haiti along with several African ship-riders who were on board. Ward was in Atlanta, Georgia to accept the Trumpet Award, which recognizes the accomplishments of …read more

Minnesota Man Sentenced To 15 Years For Shooting Black Protesters

Published by:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A white Minnesota man who was sentenced to more than 15 years in prison Wednesday for shooting and wounding five black protesters said he’ll live with the consequences of his actions for the rest of his life, but stopped short of apologizing.

Allen Scarsella’s sentence of 15 years and two months was short of prosecutors’ request for the maximum 20 years but within state guidelines. The 25-year-old Bloomington man was convicted in February on assault and riot charges for shooting the five men at a Black Lives Matter protest encampment outside a north Minneapolis police station following the fatal police shooting of a black man, Jamar Clark, in 2015.

“I recognize the severity of the events of November 23rd, 2015,” Scarsella said as he stood before Hennepin County District Judge Hilary Caligiuri. He said the shootings were not what he wanted to happen that night when he and three friends went to the protest, where demonstrators chased them away because they were wearing masks. “I’ll live with the consequences the rest of my life.”

Prosecutor Chris Freeman dismissed self-defense claims that Scarsella made during his trial. He called the crime, “five unarmed black men gunned down in what …read more
