Black Liberation and the reemergence of Malcolm X

first_imgLilly is WWP’s vice presidential candidate in the 2016 elections. The following article is based on a talk given at a Workers World Party forum in New York City on May 20. To view a video of the talk, go to youtu.be/AfrZ54-3BCk.Thursday, May 19, was the 91st revolutionary birthday of Brother Minister El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz — Brother Malcolm X. Born on May 19, 1925, he was brutally assassinated at the Audubon Ballroom on Feb. 21, 1965, in New York City. It would be just like Malcolm to request that we not only lift his name in love and respect but also the names of Yuri Kochiyama, Lorraine Hansberry and Brother Ho Chi Minh, all of whom share his birth date.The way Malcolm was evolving, he would want us to recognize all their contributions to the struggle. This was the same Malcolm X who said, “I, for one, will join in with anyone, I don’t care what color you are, as long as you want to change this miserable condition.”Malcolm XUnfortunately, comrades, we’re still living in many of the same conditions that Malcolm was preaching about in 1964 and 1965: racism and Jim Crow; police murders of Black men, Black women and Black babies; church burnings; mass incarceration; poor housing; and third-class living conditions. Tamir Rice was no different than Emmett Till. The poverty then is the same poverty now, even worse. The same imperialism. The same police state.But Brother Malcolm did leave a blueprint of what needs to be constructed through work and collective struggle.New generation of freedom fighters emergesThat’s the time we’re living in right now — a renewed period of work and struggle. A new generation of young freedom fighters has stepped forward, comrades! We’re talking about teenagers and youth. And Brother Malcolm X is right back in the swing of things, right back on the front lines from the depths of his grave.No one is being studied and paid more homage right now than Brother Malcolm X, at least among the movement’s Black youth. Sister Beyoncé put Brother Malcolm X front and center on her new album “Lemonade,” which instantly went global.The album features Malcolm X live, as if he were talking right in your left ear: “The most disrespected person in America is the Black woman. The most unprotected person in America is the Black woman. The most neglected person in America is the Black woman.”When I heard that live vocal sample on the album, I couldn’t help but think of Sister Sandra Bland, murdered by police in a Texas jail cell; Rekia Boyd; Renisha McBride; and seven-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones, murdered by Detroit police while she was sleeping. For all the criticism she’s received, for Sister Beyoncé to put Malcolm X on her album like that was actually quite revolutionary.As of last month, you have Black girls — girls of color all over the world, as young as six years old — googling Malcolm X now, reading about him, writing about him, learning about him, listening to his speeches. Not in the public school system, but on their own independent, free-thinking terms.Right here in Manhattan somewhere, there’s a crew of 12-year-old Black girls braiding each other’s hair now and discussing Malcolm X’s political theory. That kind of enthusiasm for Malcolm X hasn’t happened in 40 years, comrades.A good friend of mine, Dr. Ashley Farmer, who’s currently working on her postdoctoral degree at Duke University, just published a major academic article on Malcolm X. It’s entitled, “The Many Women Mentors of Malcolm X.” A must-read, it was published via the African American Intellectual History Society on May 3 and has been widely circulated ever since.Oppressed youth seek guidance from MalcolmAs the state has clamped down and decent employment has dried up — as the conditions have worsened and white supremacy has once again mounted an ugly surge via the Trump campaign and the Ku Klux Klan’s new membership drive down South — the oppressed youth have sought guidance in an old friend. The youth in Ferguson, the youth in Baltimore, the youth in Palestine, Black girls and Black boys are again discovering Malcolm X for the first time.Not only was Malcolm ahead of his time regarding the role of women, he was thinking, traveling and organizing internationally in the early 1960s, long before social media or the Internet.Today, we have Facebook and Twitter, which is how our Palestinian comrades were assisting the struggle in Ferguson during the 2014 rebellion. Malcolm didn’t have that, but he did organize a very similar network of friends, allies and comrades — in Cuba, Ghana, Egypt, Algeria.When I was in Lebanon last year for the International Forum for Justice in Palestine, it was the youth from Algeria and Tunisia who knew all about Malcolm X. I learned firsthand that Malcolm X is still a bridge of international working-class struggle.Malcolm stated in 1964: “It is incorrect to classify the revolt of the Negro as simply a racial conflict of black against white, or as a purely American problem. Rather, we are today seeing a global rebellion of the oppressed against the oppressor, the exploited against the exploiter.”One of the current and most beautiful aspects of the Black Lives Matter movement is this new emphasis on things “Black.” Not only do Black lives matter, but the masses of Black youth are now “unapologetically Black,” redefining what Black Power means for a new generation.Beautiful Black Power, Black prideIf you haven’t noticed, Black youth are now wearing their hair natural again. The young sisters today have said the hell with straightening their hair. They’re rocking their “locs,” braids and cornrows — the short doobies, their natural coils and twists. It’s a reflection of a political and cultural shift.If you don’t have any pride in who you are, how in hell can you be a good freedom fighter? If you don’t love the people, how can you serve the people? You have to love yourself and love the people, then you’ll have a cause to fight for — a worthy cause, a noble cause, a righteous cause — the kind of cause that will make you sacrifice for the next generation — out of love, out of pride and solidarity. We learned that from Brother Malcolm X.Last year, during the Movement for Black Lives Convening in Cleveland, everybody there was Black and proud! When I say “proud,” I don’t mean the arrogant kind of proud. I mean the “Shut Shit Down” kind of proud — the kind of proud that makes you stand up and fight back instead of laying down and begging. The kind of proud that makes you defend yourself, resist and hold your head high, despite the teargas, despite the tanks. The kind of proud that makes you get organized and take over highways and universities.It was Malcolm X who gave us that, comrades — not only 50 years ago, but today in 2016. And the young people have taken that and run with it. So let’s help them go as far as they can with it. Cointelpro [the murderous U.S. government program which targeted progressives and revolutionaries, especially African Americans and other people of color] thought they had killed Malcolm, but the youth are keeping him alive. In the words of El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, “The future belongs to those who prepare for it today. In all our deeds, the proper value and respect for time determines success or failure.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Cricket News Not thought too much about losing series against India: Tim Paine ahead of Sydney Test

first_imgNew Delhi: The Australian cricket team are on the verge of losing the series against India following their 137-run loss in the Melbourne Test. Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team are on the cusp of becoming not just the first Asian nation to win a Test series Down Under, but they have the chance to erase 72 years of pain to win a series in Australia for the first time. Tim Paine, the captain of the side, has presided over a side which are still reeling from the bans on Steve Smith and David Warner following the ball-tampering scandal in Cape Town. Speaking in the pre-match press conference ahead of the Sydney Test, Paine said he wanted to focus on improving the team’s performance in the final Test.“I haven’t thought too much about losing the series, that’s for sure…some guys will use different things to motivate them. My motivation is making sure we’re improving, competitive at all times and put up a really good fight against India. My focus has been on us improving and us playing the best possible cricket we can. We want to win every Test we play. At times it’s not possible. We’re playing the best Test team in the world now,” Paine admitted on the eve of the Test.Read More | BCCI announces 13-man squad for SCG Test, call on Ashwin tomorrow Ever since the ball-tampering scandal, the Australian batting has struggled. In the series against India, no batsmen has scored a century while in the last three Tests against Pakistan and in South Africa in Johannesburg, only Usman Khawaja scored a century in the Dubai Test against Pakistan. Paine admitted that the current squad was lacking experience but it is ‘work in progress’.Read More | When Rishabh Pant turns into ‘baby sitter’ for Paine’s kids“We are constantly a work in progress…as I said before, it is about trying to keep a bit of perspective, a reality about where we are at. I think we are showing signs of getting better. I think in the last Test while our batters didn’t set the world on fire, most guys got a start and showed that they can succeed at this level. So, in this Test, there is going to be a real focus from our batting group,” Paine said.Long-term planningAustralia made changes in the Sydney Test following their loss in Melbourne. Khawaja will open the batting in place of Aaron Finch, who has struggled in the entire series. Marnus Labuschagne might make his debut while Peter Handscomb will replace Mitchell Marsh. The aim for Australia, Paine stated, was to build a steady batting line-up for the Ashes which will take place immediately after the World Cup.Read More | Gavaskar could miss trophy presentation ceremony after final Test“The silver lining is that in a few Tests’ time we have some world-class players available and we are going to have some younger guys with 8-10 Tests under their belt. So, it is going to be a great thing for Australian cricket. We want to try and settle guys who we think will play long-term in their positions looking forward into the next series and then into the Ashes. But at the same time we’ve got to find the best eleven to win this Test as well, so it’s a bit of a balancing act,” Paine said.Both Australia and India might name their playing XIs just before the toss in Sydney, with Virat Kohli’s side also making some changes.

Bomber boys begin season in at Best of Best Soccer Tournament

first_imgAfter experiencing the joy of winning a B.C. Soccer Provincial B title during the summer with the Nelson U18 Selects, head coach Keith Williams is preparing to dial it back a little as skipper of the L.V. Rogers Bombers.Williams, with a few of the same crew that won the provincial crown, travels to the Fraser Valley today to compete in the 16-team Best of the Best High School Boy’s Soccer Tournament in Chilliwack.“It’s definitely going to be a rebuilding year,” Williams said Tuesday when asked about the team heading into the 2010 high school boy’s soccer season.“It’s probably the smallest team I’ve had in terms of physical stature I’ve had in years,” added Williams, who took the Bombers to a disappointing 12th place finish with almost the same team that rebounded to win the 2010 Provincial B Cup.LVR returns just seven players from last year’s squad. Along with several graduating seniors, the Bombers are missing the Chopin boys, Jules and Titoun. The Chopin boys decided to move to the Lower Mainland to pursue their soccer careers playing the in Metro League.Heading up the roster is midfielders Luke Mori and Erik Norberg. Other returning players include striker Danny Santano, midfielder Simon Sheppard and defenders John Whelan, Kevin Lewis and Sean Hickson.The Bombers open the tournament Thursday morning against Valleyview of Kamloops. The team completes the opening day round robin draw against G.W. Graham of Chilliwack and Vancouver’s Handsworth Royals.Other teams in the tournament are from Northern B.C., the Fraser Valley, Okanagan and Vancouver regions.The round robin record determines where teams advance into the playoff round.The final is set for 2:15 p.m. Friday.The date of the Chilliwack tournament hit the radar screen much earlier than in previous years, forcing Williams to take a different approach entering the event.“I’m just getting to know a lot of the player’s names so I really don’t now what to expect,” he explained. Andrew Woodward and Bruno Munro, the latter an exchange student for Mexico, have the tough task to replace graduating senior Kean Silverthorn in goal.last_img read more

Emphatic victory for DeGale in Canada

first_imgJames DeGale enjoyed an emphatic victory on his North American debut, destroying former world title challenger Sebastien Demers with a second-round knockout in Canada.The Harlesden super-middleweight was on top from the start of the fight at the Hilton Lac Leamy in Gatineau-Ottawa, western Quebec.He hurt Demers in the first round, landing with a host of eye-catching shots, including a cracking uppercut and a hurtful left that had his opponent reeling.Demers, 33, came to the ring with plenty of experience, having faced Arthur Abraham for the IBF middleweight title in 2007 and lost to another ex-world champion, Allan Green, on points in November.But he had no answer to DeGale’s hand-speed and was bloodied around the nose and taking more heavy shots as the barrage continued early in the second.And the end came when a thunderous left uppercut sent a dazed Demers staggering to the floor, where he remained until the referee completed the count.A resounding win in his first outing since December keeps DeGale on course for a possible world title shot later this year.See also:DeGale vows to win world title this yearDeGale to make title defence next 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Lessons learned from the 2017 growing season

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest As harvest wraps up and growers look back at the challenging 2017 growing season, there are a few lessons that can be learned. With the challenging spring, delayed planting, wet weather throughout the growing season, periods of stress, and then more wet weather during harvest, there were plenty of challenges to producing a crop. Importance of timely spring field workIn many areas of the eastern Corn Belt there was a window of opportunity for planting around April 20th. Crops planted on or around this date got off to a successful start, more likely to survive the cold wet weather that would arrive about a week later. In some areas where crops weren’t planted weather created delays that kept equipment out of the fields for almost a month. The spring of 2017 reinforced the importance of being prepared to go to the field when conditions are favorable for seed germination and growth. Critical seed imbibing periodThe initial 24 to 48 hours after planting is a critical period that determines the viability of seedlings. During this period seeds imbibe water required for germination. A cold rain during this critical time can cause cold shock and imbibition injury to seeds. Fields that were planted right before cold rainy weather this year had reduced stands and needed to be replanted in some cases. Heavy rains also resulted in hard crusts on soil surfaces that kept seedlings from emerging and caused corn plants to leaf out underground. The cold wet weather at the end of April showed the importance of the period during which seeds imbibe water and that planting right before a cold rain event can have a disastrous impact on seed viability. Corn planting depthCorn planting depth is important because it impacts many aspects of corn plant growth including germination, emergence, and root development. Agronomists and university experts advise that corn should be planted at a depth of at least 1.5 inches. Corn that was planted too shallow in 2017 experienced problems including uneven emergence, rootless corn syndrome, herbicide injury, reduced plant stands, and yield loss. Importance of scouting fieldsWith adverse weather beginning in the spring, disease presence, and periods of dry weather in late summer, crops were exposed to many stress-inducing conditions throughout the year. Field scouting was an important activity in identifying problems and determining management decisions. In areas where diseases were present, scouting paid off by allow growers to make timely fungicide applications to reduce yield losses. In areas where heavy rains and ponded water occurred after nitrogen was applied in corn, N deficiencies began to show up early in the growing season. Scouting in these areas was key to identifying areas where stalks could be cannibalized for ear formation, which led to weaker stalks and lodging in the fall. Taking time to walk fields in 2017 helps growers make sound decisions. Timely harvestWith delayed planting and replant this spring, crops were delayed in maturing in the fall. In some areas corn was left in the field in order to save on grain drying costs. Soybean harvest was also delayed due to delayed maturity and green stem syndrome. Wet weather in late October and early November further delayed harvest in many areas. While it is important to balance cost saving measures and timely harvest, delaying harvest too long leads to standability issues, grain quality concerns, and soil compaction if a pattern of wet weather arrives.Although 2017 was a challenging season, there are some lessons to be learned, and growers who uses the lessons learned to make sound decisions in the future will have successful growing seasons in the years to come.last_img read more

Heroku’s Security Slip-Up – Is It Time for a PaaS Security Certification Standard?

first_imgklint finley Today Heroku, a Ruby platform-as-a-service which was recently acquired by Salesforce.com, disclosed a serious security issue. The vulnerability has been fixed, and there is no evidence that it was ever exploited. Earlier this week, NodeFu had its databases deleted when admins revealed its CouchOne password on Github. Missteps by PaaS providers leave customers at risk and jeopardize the reputation of the public cloud.Is it time for a PaaS security certification standard?First of all, credit where credit is due. The Heroku security issue was discovered by David E. Chen, the founder of Heroku competitor Duostack. Chen notified Heroku and didn’t disclose the issue on his own blog until Heroku issued a statement about it. Heroku also deserves credit for publicly disclosing the issue.I’ve written before that the public cloud can be more secure than on-premise solutions. That still holds true. But no solution offers perfect security, as these incidents demonstrate. Infrastructure-as-a-service gives customers more control over their data. There are government standards for software-as-a-service that private companies can also use to assess the security of a service. PaaS customers usually have less transparency into how the system works than IaaS customers, but more power (and therefore more room for error) than SaaS customers. Although providers should be responsible for customer’s security, Chen notes that customers shouldn’t be helpless when it comes to their own security on platforms:Take security into your own hands. Users should be responsible for verifying that their providers meet their needs. Ask questions. Ultimately, you are responsible for your app and it’s up to you to find out what your provider really does for your app’s security behind the shallow promises of marketing materials.That’s a good starting point, but what questions should be asked? If PaaS really is the future, as we’ve predicted, then we’re going to need some some good questions.One particular question to ask is suggested by Chen: how are users partitions segmented from each other? Chen writes:There are two strategies for providers to partition the resources for each user I would like to discuss: virtualization, or operating system/runtime privileges. In the first, each user is provided with a contained copy of what appears to be a complete machine dedicated to their use. In the latter, many users share one machine (which may be virtualized itself). Heroku has chosen the latter approach, though this is likely not apparent to many users.That’s a good starting point. However, “Have you ever posted your database password in Github?” is probably not going to be a helpful question. There are still going to be slip-ups, and gauging a providers reputation and security procedures is going to be increasingly important. What if there was a way for providers to receive certification? A set of best practices for PaaS security, along with an independent auditing organization, could be just the thing the industry and its customers need right now.Image credit: Bichuas (E.

BC Childrens Mini Med School makes firstever stop in the Peace Region

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Over 100 students from across the Peace Region were at the Pomeroy Hotel yesterday as BC Children’s Hospital brought its Mini Med School program to Northeast B.C. for the first time ever yesterday.BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute’s Executive Director Dr. Wyeth Wasserman said that the program allowed students from across the Peace – with several commuting in from Tumbler Ridge – to connect with some of the research projects currently ongoing at BC Children’s Hospital and to learn about different career paths. Dr. Wasserman said that the group of students learned about a wide range of topics, including DNA, genetics, and rare diseases that can occur in children, as well as both viral and bacterial infections and other infectious diseases that affect children, before concluding the day on the topics of injury prevention and active living.    Dr. Wasserman said that students brought up a number of good questions for the program’s instructors, especially pertaining to the education path one could take in getting into the medical profession.“We had lots of questions about careers and how long it takes to become a doctor or a nurse. We heard that you don’t always find your way to being a doctor through one route. We had one of the doctors today who started out studying English as an Arts major. We have others who talked about delays and did another carrier path. So it’s important to recognize that when you move into the healthcare field, you can do so later in life. It doesn’t have to be right out of high school.”Dr. Wasserman said that the program builds on initiatives in recent years that push having doctors trained closer to where they grow up, so that they’re more likely to stay in Northern communities. He added that the Mini-Med School will be heading elsewhere in the Interior next year, but that organizers have plans to have the program come back to this part of the province on alternating years in the future.last_img read more
