I’ve lacked as the author of this blog and I apologize for that. This week will mark my return. I’ll be picking up where I left off and discuss Critical Race Theory, why it is necessary and how its analysis is needed in light of the Trayvon Martin tragedy. There is a dimension to this CRT angle that I want to cover, also. According to the New York Civil Liberties Union, about a new study regarding New York City’s “stop-and-fisk” program:
[T]he study shows that out of those stopped only 0.15 per cent resulted in firearms charges. This number stands to directly contradict Commissioner Kelly’s statements that the stops are responsible for the fall in gun crime. Also of note is the fact that out of all ethnicities stopped, white people had the highest chance of having committed a crime, despite being proportionally the least searched.

This is one of the areas that CRT covers in it’s analysis, and I’ll report on it through the week.
Aside from that, I’ve added a new tab. It’s meant to be an index of all the leftist (Green, Socialist, Communist, etc.) parties in the world, but will likely just be restricted to the American continents for the time being. My goal is for it to be an education tool and maybe a good networking resource. We’ll see, though.
