[Xmca-l] Re: Watch ""You Can Replace Property, You Can't Replace a Life": Voices of the Unheard in the Baltimore Streets" on YouTube



Yes to both questions... however, there is an emerging divide amongst blacks during this whole process:

1. Young black people have shun the older leaders, jesse jackson, al sharpton, etc., of the civil rights movement...embracing cornel west who is being attacked by dyson, Sharpton and some others

2.  Black police officers in many instances  are complicit in covering up some of the actions of their white colleagues  

3.  The divide between the interests of the black middle and upper-middle classes and those who William Julius Wilson refer to as the truly disadvantage are coming to light in these protest movements.

</div>Hi colleagues

I need to ask two ill-informed questions: I need background to the clips
and programmes.

1.  Are there any AfrAmer police used in quelling these "riots"?
2.  Are there any NON- Afr Americ people in the riots?

I was moved by the earlier clip posted about the local people holding the
peace, and cleaning up too. Which prompts another ill-informed question:

Who watches Democracy Now?  Do mainstream Americans watch it?

I have been watching Noam Chomsky talks over the last few days, so
developing a new language of healthy scepticism. I didn't have the
right *language
*of scepticism before, just the scepticism *itself*. Bravo Chomsky - I only
studied his linguistics as a student, and wrote about his position in my
MA.

Please bear with me.  I know a lot about South Africa politics but
obviously not enough about racial issues in the US. I am using my XMCA
colleagues as a short cut to knowledge.
