Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Major Hospital Infected 700 with STDs in Experiments, $1 Billion Lawsuit Says


A class action lawsuit has been filed by a large group of over 700 Guatemalans seeking $1 billion. The plaintiffs were either directly or indirectly the victims of experiments allegedly perpetrated by the John Hopkins University in tandem with the Rockefeller foundation.

From 1945 to the early 50’s, a collection of Guatemalan sex workers, government workers, prisoners, patients, and military were infected with STDs unknown to them, while researchers tested which pharmaceuticals were the most effective in treating their disease. Because of this, these test subjects unwittingly spread the venereal diseases to their spouses, family and friends, causing injury and death in some cases.

Nearly seventy years later in 2010, the US government issued a public apology since these experiments came to light, and a similar lawsuit was filed against them in 2012. Though admitted to be unethical and apologizing for the harm done, the judge ruled that the disgruntled Guatemalans couldn’t sue the US for grievances that happened overseas, and that health officials in the current administration had nothing to do with the experiments personally.  | Natural Society

WHO Says C-Sections on the Rise, But Shouldn't Happen Unless Medically Necessary

Cesarean sections save lives, but the World Health Organization says they shouldn't be performed unless they're medically necessary. They're necessary when the baby is in distress or in an abnormal position, or when the mother's labor has become prolonged, the organization said, adding that c-sections should generally only happen in about 10 or 15 percent of births.

When c-sections are performed in about 10 percent of births, maternal and newborn deaths decrease, according to WHO. But when they occur in more than 10 percent of births, there's no change in the mortality rates. Yet, C-section rates continue to rise in wealthy countries, WHO said. In the United States, 32.7 percent of births are c-sections, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  - ABC News

Noam Chomsky: Slavery and White Fear of Revenge 'Deeply Rooted in American Culture'

Huey P Newton
American culture is imbued with fears that African Americans will someday repay the violence and oppression that has marred their history in this country, according to linguist and cultural critic Noam Chomsky. Speaking with philosopher George Yancy about the roots of American racism, from Native American genocide to anti-black discrimination, Chomsky emphasized the ongoing impact of black enslavement and subjugation in the U.S., saying “fears that the victims might rise up and take revenge are deeply rooted in American culture, with reverberations to the present.”

Chomsky was speaking with Yancy as part of an ongoing New York Times series of discussions around race. Early in the conversation, Yancy noted that contemporary American conversations about terrorism often omit “the fact that many black people in the United States have had a long history of being terrorized by white racism.” Chomsky cited the fact that slaves had arrived in the colonies 400 years ago, and were largely responsible for America’s early economic strength.

“We...cannot allow ourselves to forget that the hideous slave labor camps of the new “empire of liberty” were a primary source for the wealth and privilege of American society, as well as England and the continent. The industrial revolution was based on cotton, produced primarily in the slave labor camps of the United States.”  | Alternet

33 cities in America ban feeding the homeless and even propose jail if caught doing so

Matthew 25:44-46New International Version (NIV)

44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”


Homelessness is not a crime — and neither is feeding the hungry!

9b29468a25addc25a6c028f9f597cdf3Thirty-three cities already ban or are considering banning giving food to homeless people — and some are threatening to throw people in jail if they're caught feeding the hungry.

These laws claim they're about preventing government-run anti-homelessness programs from being diluted. They're really about keeping non-profits and individuals from shining a light on just how bad things have gotten for our country's poor, even asthe homeless are treated like criminals for being without food and shelter.

Charity work like sharing food with the homeless is essential in a country where protecting the poor and needy is never at the top of the list, and is found to help those without shelter get back on their feet.


Why Blacks MUST DO FOR SELF: Americans Would Rather Do Business With White People Than Black People

There is deep racial bias in our economy, as evidenced by the fact that online buyers shy away from doing business with black sellers and offer them less money when they do interact.
In a year-long experiment, researchers posted ads on online marketplaces like Craigslist selling an old iPod with a picture of the seller holding it, with either a black person or white person’s hand pictured. They also posted ads with a white hand that had a wrist tattoo, which the authors posited might experience similar discrimination to black people and could serve as a control group.  | ThinkProgress

Wrath of God: Survey shows close to 50% of American women ages 15 to 44 in 2014 are childless

One Simple Stat Proves It's Perfectly Normal Not to Have Kids, Once and For All - Mic
Newly released U.S. Census Bureau data from the Current Population Survey shows that 47.6% of women ages 15 to 44 in 2014 are childless. That's an all-time high, based on the year-over-year data: In 1994, for example, 42% of American women were kid-free. Back in 1976, it was 35.1%.
Why fewer of us are having babies: There are several reasons that our nation's "cumulative fertility," as the Census Bureau puts it, has dropped. One underreported but important reason is that fewer teens are giving birth, in no small part due to "more and better contraceptive use," according to the Guttmacher Institute. Helping teens get contraception has been instrumental; as Jezebel reported, "Colorado reduced its teen pregnancy rate by 40% between 2009 and 2013 largely by providing over 30,000 LARCs for free at 68 family planning clinics statewide."
Older women are also sidestepping parenthood for a mix of reasons, some purposeful and some not. (According to the CDC, of women ages 15 to 44, 10.9% experience an "impaired" ability to conceive or carry children to term.) But as Mic's Liz Plank noted, there are more and more women who have the ability and are choosing not to. Money's a huge factor, compounded by the lack of affordable and subsidized child carelow wages and the sheer cost of raising a child today.
Marriage also makes a difference, as American women are getting married later than ever. While there are more and more women have kids outside marriage, there's still a strong connection between marriage and childbearing. As Pew Research Center noted, the longer women wait, the less likely it is to end up happening.  - Mic

Post-Racial America? Millennials are just about as racist as their parents


When it comes to explicit prejudice against blacks, non-Hispanic white millennials are not much different than whites belonging to Generation X (born 1965-1980) or Baby Boomers (born 1946-1964). White millennials (using a definition of being born after 1980) express the least prejudice on 4 out of 5 measures in the survey, but only by a matter of 1 to 3 percentage points, not a meaningful difference. On work ethic, 31 percent of millennials rate blacks as lazier than whites, compared to 32 percent of Generation X whites and 35 percent of Baby Boomers. (Question wording and methodology at the end).   - The Washington Post



Ethiopian Falash Jews Denied Entry Into Racist Zionist Israel

They Speak Hebrew And Keep Kosher: The Left-Behind Ethiopian Jews

Disqualified Under A Stricter Law

Jewish worshippers gather at a makeshift synagogue established by the Jewish Agency for Israel for Ethiopian Jews in Gondar, Ethiopia, in 2012.For Jews around the world, having one Christian ancestor would not disqualify them from becoming an Israeli citizen. Israel's founding Law of Return decrees that a person can immigrate to Israel if he or she has one Jewish grandparent, on either side. Gezi has that.

But Gezi and his family are a special case, because they're descended from a group of Ethiopians whose Jewish ancestors converted to Christianity under pressure in the 19th century. They're called the Falash Mura. They secretly practiced Judaism but were not allowed to emigrate with the other Ethiopian Jews until a hard-won political compromise a decade ago.

Even then, Israel didn't approve them under the standard Law of Return but under a stricter religious law that says to be Jewish you need to prove an "unbroken" maternal Jewish line. It is under this stricter law that Gezi's Christian great-grandmother disqualifies him.  : Parallels : NPR
