At the University of Missouri, Truly A ‘Teachable Moment’ About Power

Ferguson, Missouri, Looks to Restore Trust with ‘Old-Style’ Policing

A weeklong hunger strike by University of Missouri graduate student Jonathan Butler was the catalyst for broader action against an administration that repeatedly failed to address complaints of racism and discrimination at the flagship Columbia campus. The students’ demands were met yesterday with the resignations of President Tim Wolfe and Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin. It’s a teachable moment, says Leid Stories.

Meanwhile, about 120 miles away, the City of Ferguson says it’s trying to bridge longstanding rifts between the community and police that exploded after 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot dead on Aug. 9 last year by Officer Darren Wilson. Interim Police Chief Andre Anderson began making the rounds to community groups last weekend with the good news of “old-style” policing.

Infectious Myth – Addiction is not a Disease – 11.10.15

In episode 79 David talks with Marc Lewis who has unique experience in the area of drug addiction, as both a former addict, and today a neuroscientist and professor of developmental psychology at Radboud University in Holland. He described his personal voyage into and out of addiction in his 2011 book, “Memoirs of an Addicted Brain”. His recently published book, “The Biology of Desire: Why Addiction is Not a Disease” is titled to illustrate his conclusion that addiction is desire gone wrong, and that the addict gets trapped into a vicious cycle of desire, use, disappointment, repeat. David observes that loneliness, separation and isolation are a common factor at the start of many addiction stories, and that drugs only worsen this (as does imprisonment, the other common approach to drug addiction).

Black Agenda Radio – 11.09.15

Welcome, to the radio magazine that brings you news, commentary and analysis from a Black Left perspective.

– A conference on the Black radical tradition is scheduled for January 8th through 10th at Philadelphia’s Temple University. Dr. Anthony Monteiro, who was until recently a professor of African American Studies at Temple, is one of the conference organizers. Dr. Monteiro says it’s time for the Black liberation movement to get focused.

– Dr. Gerald Horne, the professor of History and African American Studies at the University of Houston, is one of the most prolific Black scholars of modern times. Much of his recent work has focused on the origins of the United States as a bulwark of slavery and racist reaction. Dr. Horne’s news book is titled, “Confronting Black Jacobins: The U.S., the Haitian Revolution, and the Origins of the Dominican Republic.” Horne sees his book as an update on the late, great C.L.R. James’s 1938 classic, “The Black Jacobins: Toussaint L’Ouverture and the San Domingo Revolution.”

– Two Black farmers organizations, one in the U.S. Deep South, the other in Central America, have been awarded the 2015 Food Sovereignty Prize. But, what is food sovereignty? We asked Beverly Bell, coordinator of Other Worlds and an associate fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies, in Washington.

Ask Beatty – 11.09.15

How honest are we with ourselves and with others? How important to you is truth and honesty? How do we learn to trust others if they betray us? Does it concern you that Dr. Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina and others are blatantly lying to us about parts of their history? Or do we care that Bernie Sanders doesn’t kiss babies? Beatty asks you to consider these important questions, which invariably affect all of our relationships.

Netanyahu’s Back; This Time He’s Looking to Bag $40 Billion in Free Money

City Council of Hamtramck, Detroit, Now Majority-Muslim—A First in U.S.

Ferguson Looks to Restore Trust with ‘Old-Style’ Policing

He’d brazenly interfered in U.S. domestic affairs when he hijacked a joint session of Congress on March 3 to urge legislators to scuttle U.S. and international negotiations with Iran on its nuclear program. He and several of his senior advisers have spoken, and continue to speak, rather disparagingly of President Barack Obama and his administration. But Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s back in Washington today, and he’s looking for a $40-billion handout in military aid.

Hamtramck, a small city within Detroit, Michigan, made big news last week. With elections last week, it now boasts a majority-Muslim City Council—a first in the United States.

The City of Ferguson, Missouri, is trying to heal longstanding rifts between the community and cops with “old-style policing,” Interim Police Chief Andre Anderson told locals Saturday.
