"Don't believe everything you hear. Real eyes realize real lies." -Tupac Shakur Assata Shakur is now a Muslim. Well, she didn't actually convert to Islam. But in the eyes of the United States government where "terrorism" and threats to the state have become synonymous with Islam and Muslims, the recent placement of Assata Shakur on the FBI's "Most Wanted Terrorist List", has for all intents and purposes, made her one. While her being named to the list shocked many, is it really that surprising, especially when one considers how the "war on terror" has been used as a logic of control to systematically target, undermine and destroy any challenge to the domestic and global realms of US power? Welcome to the Terrordome Recently while in New York, I was on a panel at the Riverside Church that explored the links between the "war on crime" and the "war on terror". I joined an incredible group of mostly black and Muslim activists, individuals (including Yusef Salaam, one of the "Central Park Five"), and family me ...

Watching a Showtime movie where Jane Seymour plays Fanny Kemble, the British actress and abolitionist who wrote a book about her husband, Pierce Butler's slave plantation on an island off of Georgia. Her book which hubby threw in the fireplace and burned later sold out in England and France leading to France deciding not to support the Confederates in the Civil War. She was an ancestor on the side of the family of Diedrich Jansen Haines who's the grandfather to some of us. Kemble also birthed two daughters Sarah K. Butler Wister and Frances who represented their parents' divergent attitudes on the War. A family divided in a war were brother fought brother. Not a bad movie and some trivia: Hubby Pierce Butler later was used as the inspiration for Rhett Butler in Gone with the Wind. She later met up and became friends with another direct descendant of my family, William Ellery Channing, the founder of the Unitarian Church when it stared in the United States. I don't know much about the slaves that Butler o ...
Beth Hamedrash Hagodol holds a special place in Jewish history. It is considered the oldest Russian Orthodox Jewish Congregation in the United States. The Congregation was originally founded in 1852 and, at its height, had over 1400 members and served more than 250,000 worshippers from around the country. The Congregation has dwindled down to a few members who no longer conduct prayer services in the building. Beth Hamedrash Hagodol’s Synagogue is located at 60 Norfolk Street, between Grand Street and Broome Street on the Lower East Side neighborhood of Manhattan. lt was one of the first synagogues to gain New York City Landmark status in 1967. The Synagogue is also listed in the State and National Register of Historical Places. The structure was built in 1850 and was designed by the architectural firm Schneider & Herter for the Norfolk Street Baptist church, whose congregation evolved into Riverside Church on the Upper West Side. Beginning in 1860, it was occupied by the Alanson Methodist Episcopal ...
"The devil came here yesterday, and it smells of sulfur still today, this table that I am now standing in front of. Yesterday, ladies and gentlemen, from this rostrum, the President of the United States, the gentleman to whom I refer as the devil, came here, talking as if he owned the world...(he) came [to the General Assembly of the United Nations] to share his nostrums to try to preserve the current pattern of domination, exploitation and pillage of the peoples of the world." Chávez began his talk by recommending Noam Chomsky's Hegemony or Survival: "It's an excellent book to help us understand what has been happening in the world throughout the 20th century, and what's happening now, and the greatest threat looming over our planet...the American empire is doing all it can to consolidate its system of domination. And we cannot allow them to do that. We cannot allow world dictatorship to be consolidated."
WHO CARES TO KNOW, A REMINDER TO AMERICA AND ALL OTHER NATIONS OF THE GUN A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.” “War is not the answer. Communism will never be defeated by the use of atomic bombs or nuclear weapons. Let us not join those who shout war and, through their misguided passions, urge the United States to relinquish its participation in the United Nations.” “We can no longer afford to worship the god of hate or bow before the altar of retaliation. The oceans of history are made turbulent by the ever-rising tides of hate. History is cluttered with the wreckage of nations and individuals that pursued this self-defeating path of hate (The Landmark Speeches of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. "Beyond Vietnam" Address delivered to the Clergy and Laymen Concerned about Vietnam, at Riverside Church 4 April 1967 New York City)
Far-left activists Ramsey Clark and Sara Flounders, co-founders of the International Action Center (IAC), have initiated a petition entitled “Hands Off Iran,” supporting the genocidal regime’s right to maintain a nuclear program. The petition-signing event, described by the IAC as a “gala celebration for Ramsey Clark’s 85th birthday and the 20th anniversary of the International Action Center,” took place on January 13 at the Riverside Church in New York City. Their stance is to be expected. The IAC, founded in 1992, is an organization whose worldview aligns itself with Marxist-Leninist principles. On its own website, the IAC defines itself as an ”‘anti-capitalist and anti-imperialist’ organization” dedicated to ending “the human suffering caused by living under a system that puts profit before peoples needs (sic).” Much of its activity centers around foreign policy, the driving forces of which is the conviction that the United States is an imperialist power bent on re-colonizing th ...
"Love measures our stature: the more we love, the bigger we are. There is no smaller package in all the world than that of a man all wrapped up in himself." -William Sloane Coffin William Sloane Coffin, Jr. (June 1, 1924 – April 12, 2006) was an American liberal Christian clergyman and long-time peace activist. He was ordained in the Presbyterian church and later received ministerial standing in the United Church of Christ. In his younger days he was an athlete, a talented pianist, a CIA agent, and later chaplain of Yale University, where the influence of Reinhold Niebuhr's social philosophy led him to become a leader in the civil-rights and peace movements of the 1960s and 1970s. He also was a member of the secret society Skull and Bones. He went on to serve as Senior Minister at the Riverside Church in New York City, and President of SANE/Freeze (now Peace Action), the nation's largest peace and justice group, and prominently opposed United States military intervention from the Vietnam War to the Iraq ...

Bill Cosby speaking at Riverside Church, New York City 2010 Bill Cosby I'm 74 and Tired" Worth reading... This should be required reading for every man, woman and child in Jamaica, the UK , United States of America , Canada , Australia and New Zealand "I'm 74 and I'm Tired" I'm 74. Except for brief period in the 50's when I was doing my National Service, I've worked hard since I was 17. Except for some serious health challenges, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn't call in sick in nearly 40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as though retirement was a bad idea, and I'm tired. Very tired. I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic. I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it. I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no o ...
