    Dubuque, Iowa Officials Admit To Housing Discrimination Against Blacks
    By D.L. Chandler

    On Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced an agreement with the city of Dubuque, Iowa (pictured), that effectively settles allegations that the city discriminated against African Americans applying for the Housing Choice Voucher Program. Last year, reports emerged from the city that officials admitted to barring Blacks from the program in a period between 2007 and 2011, after findings of a HUD investigation came to light.

    Gallup: States that embraced Obamacare saw uninsured rate drop 3X faster than states that didn’t

    States embracing Obamacare are doing a better job of covering the uninsured, surveys show
    BY JASON MILLMAN
    April 16 at 10:29 am

    New surveys out Wednesday morning provide a glimpse into just how many Americans have gained insurance since the Obamacare health insurance marketplaces opened in October.

    First, Gallup reports that states which fully embraced the law by setting up their own exchanges and expanding their Medicaid programs saw their uninsured rate drop this year three times faster than the states that didn’t.

    John Roberts and the Color of Money

    Applying the history of white supremacy in America to the Supreme Court’s McCutcheon decision

    Tom LevensonApr 16 2014, 9:32 AM ET

    ……………………..

    But that first-order take on this latest from the Supreme Court’s right wing misses a crucial dimension. It isn’t just rich folks who benefit from the Roberts Court’s view that money equals speech. Those who gain possess other key identifiers. For one thing, they form a truly a tiny elite. As oral arguments in McCutcheon v. FEC were being prepared last fall, the Public Campaign delivered a report on all those who approached the money limits the court struck down. They amount to just 1,219 people in the U.S.—that’s four in every 1,000,000 of our population.

    Unsurprisingly, most of the report simply reinforces the main theme of the reaction to the Supreme Court’s decision: This is one more step toward securing governance of, for, and by rich people and their well-compensated servants. One of the most troubling aspects of the story is that the top donors in this country simply don’t encounter ordinary folks, the middle class no more than the poor:

    …………………….

    But even these pathologies are vastly less severe than those to be found through the lens of race. People of color are almost entirely absent from the top donor profile, and none more so than members of the community that white Americans enslaved for two centuries:

    While more than one-in-six Americans live in a neighborhood that is majority African-American or Hispanic, less than one-in-50 superlimit donors do. More than 90 percent of these elite donors live in neighborhoods with a greater concentration of non- Hispanic white residents than average. African-Americans are especially underrepresented. The median elite donor lives in a neighborhood where the African-American population counts for only 1.4 percent, nine times less than the national rate.

    In other words: Political money and hence influence at the top levels is disproportionately white, male, and with almost no social context that includes significant numbers of African Americans and other people of color.

    — — – -A group of law students, calling themselves “The Committee,” at Washington & Lee University have submitted a list of demands to the Board of Trustees, calling for the removal of all confederate flags from campus and the recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

    The private Virginia university was originally named Washington Collegeafter George Washington. Following the Civil War, Confederate leader Robert E. Lee served as president of the college for five years before his death. The school was then renamed Washington & Lee.

    The Lee Chapel, which is located on campus, displays the different
    Confederate flags and is rented for use by a private group each year on Lee-Jackson Day.

    The Committee said their mission “is to create a community that welcomes students of color and to free those students from the psychological shackles that currently exist within Washington and Lee University.” The group calls for immediate action toward their listed demands:

    Here is a list of the FOUR DEMANDS:

    1. We demand that the University fully recognize Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus.

    2. We demand that the University stop allowing neo-confederates to march on campus with confederate flags on Lee-Jackson Day.

      They should honor Dr. King

      HOWEVER, the (private) University was named in part after Robert E. Lee…and he was the president of the school…so they can ban the CFlag if they want to but it still doesn’t change the fact that the school is half named after the general of the Confederacy.

      They should absolutely NOT let neo-confederates march through the campus, although the emos will cry free speech.

    — – –A group of state insurance officials said they were told by the White House on Thursday that 35 percent of ObamaCare’s enrollees are under 35 years of age.

    That figure represents a four-point increase since March 1, indicating that health insurance enrollments from young people increased, as expected, toward the end of the sign-up deadline.

    The percentage did not appear to refer exclusively to young adults between the ages of 18 and 35, whose participation is necessary to keep prices stable on the exchanges.

    The White House revealed the number to members of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) after they met with President Obama midday Thursday. Some saw the number as a good sign that ObamaCare is attracting younger people into the insurance pool.

    “That’s a pretty good number in terms of trying to make sure that we have a healthy [risk] pool,” NAIC President-Elect Monica J. Lindeen said of the 35 percent.

    TN votes to express regret for slavery, but not apologize
    by Associated Press

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The state House has voted to express “profound regret” for slavery and segregation in Tennessee, but stopped short of an outright apology.

    The chamber voted 97-0 in favor of the resolution sponsored by Democratic Rep. Mike Turner of Nashville.

    The measure decries what it calls the “fundamental injustice, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery and the discrimination that was slavery’s legacy.”

    The Republican-controlled chamber removed language from the original resolution that sought to offer “profound apologies” for slavery.

    WASHINGTON — The lawyer who argued before the Supreme Court in favor of upholding California’s ban on gay marriage learned while he was handling the case that one of his children is gay and now is helping her plan her wedding with another woman.

    Attorney Charles Cooper says his view of same-sex marriage is evolving after having argued in court that gay unions could undermine marriages between a man and a woman.

    This is the article for the video Rikyrah posted earlier about Central High School in Tuscaloosa, AL. When I was growing up, Central was THE High School – but thanks to a concentrated effort by white folks who simply don’t want to share, its a shell of itself today. Its shameful.
    ————————-
    Resegregation in the American South
    Sixty years after Brown v. Board of Education, the schools in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, show how separate and unequal education is coming back.
    APRIL 16, 2014

    excerpt:
    Central was not just a renowned local high school. It was one of the South’s signature integration success stories. In 1979, a federal judge had ordered the merger of the city’s two largely segregated high schools into one. The move was clumsy and unpopular, but its consequences were profound. Within a few years, Central emerged as a powerhouse that snatched up National Merit Scholarships and math-competition victories just as readily as it won trophies in football, track, golf. James Dent’s daughter Melissa graduated from Central in 1988, during its heyday, and went on to become the first in her family to graduate from college.

    But on that sunlit day last October, as Dent searched for Melissa’s daughter in the procession coming into view, he saw little to remind him of that era. More caravan than parade, Central’s homecoming pageant consisted of a wobbly group of about 30 band members, some marching children from the nearby elementary schools, and a dozen or so cars with handwritten signs attached to their sides. The route began in the predominantly black West End and ended a few blocks later, just short of the railroad tracks that divide that community from the rest of the city.

    The reason for the decline of Central’s homecoming parade is no secret. In 2000, another federal judge released Tuscaloosa City Schools from the court-ordered desegregation mandate that had governed it for a single generation. Central had successfully achieved integration, the district had argued—it could be trusted to manage that success going forward.

    Freed from court oversight, Tuscaloosa’s schools have seemed to move backwards in time. The citywide integrated high school is gone, replaced by three smaller schools. Central retains the name of the old powerhouse, but nothing more. A struggling school serving the city’s poorest part of town, it is 99 percent black. D’Leisha, an honors student since middle school, has only marginal college prospects. Predominantly white neighborhoods adjacent to Central have been gerrymandered into the attendance zones of other, whiter schools.

    – – –Rand Paul Hates Mitch McConnell So Much That He Is Refusing to Publicly Support Him- –

    – – – — -Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) hates Sen. Mitch McConnnell so much that when a constituent asked him why he supports McConnell’s reelection campaign, Paul refused to answer and told the questioner to talk to him privately.
    According to the Glasgow Daily Times:
    – – —SNIP – —

    The answer that Rand Paul won’t publicly say is that he and his staff don’t like Mitch McConnell at all, (by?) they cut a secret deal with McConnell where they promised to help him get reelected to the Senate, and McConnell would in turn open Republican establishment doors, and help Rand Paul win the 2016 Republican nomination.

    Since McConnell cut his deal with Paul, everything has gone wrong. McConnell’s approval rating is lower than President Obama’s in Kentucky. His campaign has had numerous gaffes and blunders,
    and Sen. McConnell has lost three tea party endorsements, which is interesting because shoring up Mitch with tea party voters is why he made the deal with Paul.

    California sees Obamacare surge as open enrollment ends for 2014

    Thanks to a final April surge, California’s Obamacare marketplace
    enrolled a total of 1.4 million people in private health insurance
    plans, state officials announced on Thursday, beating a federal forecast by just over 800,000 enrollees. The marketplace also signed up an additional 1.9 million in the state’s Medicaid program for the poor.[….]

    From April 1 to 15, 205,685 Californians enrolled in private health insurance through the Covered California exchange.[….] Latino enrollment reached 305,106, 28 percent of the total, 30 percent above where it stood at the end of March.[….]

    Insurance companies report that 85 percent of enrollees have paid their first month’s premium, Lee said on Thursday. Although critics of Obamacare have pointed to the 15 percent or more who do not pay as evidence of the law’s failures, Lee told the Reuters healthcare summit this month that many non-payments are because would-be customers gain health coverage through their jobs and no longer need their Covered California plan.

    – – –Basil Paterson, a longtime New York political powerhouse and the father of former Gov. David Paterson, has died, his family said Thursday. He was 87.

    Paterson died at 10 p.m. Wednesday at Mount Sinai Hospital, according to a family statement that did not give the cause of death. He would have turned 88 on April 27.

    The Democrat served as a state senator, deputy New York City mayor
    and New York’s first black secretary of state. He was part of the
    influential “Gang of Four” that included New York City’s first black
    mayor, David Dinkins, political powerbroker and civil rights activist
    Percy Sutton, and U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel. They built a power base thatmade Harlem a launching pad for the state’s black leadership and opened doors for African-American businesses.

    Philadelphia Police Will No Longer Hold Immigrants Without A Warrant

    Philadelphia police will no longer detain immigrants unless the
    federal government shows up with a warrant, Mayor Michael Nutter
    announced Wednesday morning.[….] Nutter’s executive order would prevent Philadelphia police from turning over immigrants with no criminal convictions to ICE agents. Similar restrictions are already enforced in “two states, the District of Columbia, at least eight cities and 12 counties,” including New York City, New Orleans, and statewide in California.

    The policies would mostly still allow law enforcement officials to continue to hold criminal immigrants, who were previously convicted of a first or second degree felonies involving violence. But immigration advocates from the New Sanctuary Movement (NSM) group are hailing Philadelphia’s action as a victory[….]

    This Iranian mother did something extraordinary for her son’s killer right before his execution

    [….] Shargh newspaper said police officers led Balal to a public execution site in the northern city of Nowshahr as a large crowd gathering on Tuesday morning. Samereh Alinejad, mother of the victim who lost another son in a motorbike accident four years ago, asked the crowd whether they know “how difficult it is to live in an empty house.” Balal, black-hooded and standing on a chair before a makeshift gallows, had the noose around his neck when Alinejad approached. She slapped him in the face and removed the rope from his neck assisted by her husband, Abdolghani Hosseinzadeh, a former professional footballer.[….]

    I had a dream in which my son told me that he was at peace and in a good place… After that, all my relatives, even my mother, put pressure on me to pardon the killer,” Alinejad told Shargh. “The murderer was crying, asking for forgiveness. I slapped him in the face. That slap helped to calm me down,” she said. “Now that I’ve forgiven him, I feel relieved.”[….]

        This is EXACTLY what Mr. President wants. Yes.

        We really have great community colleges here, and having taught at one, I can say my colleagues are fantastic instructors. They’ve smoothed the transfer credits between 2 and 4 year schools, setting up more satellite branches around my area. I Confess, I see great tutoring opportunity for me here. LOL

        Plus Gov. Haslam is determined to continue using Common Core, which I absolutely love. I’ve been using it since it first went live. SO HELPFUL and really academically SOLID. It really connects the pre-K to college first 2 years.

        The way the core is laid out, it’s much easier to teach different children of different ages and grade levels, and helps high school teachers and community college instructors work together. I just love, love, it.

        Now, if we can get Medicaid expanded, which frankly, many 2 year school students MUST HAVE, since many are first generation college students with parents being less likely to have top notch insurance their children can stay on until age 26.

        This is the key missing piece for those life transition points. Like Mr. President said, when he had ups and downs as a teenager, he lived in an environment more forgiving and helpful for him to find his way and get on firm footing to go the long distance.

    Hmmm…

    National Popular Vote: New York State Climbs Aboard

    [….] Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a bill joining up the Empire State to the National Popular Vote (N.P.V.) interstate compact. As I’ve explained many times, N.P.V. is a way to elect our Presidents the way we elect our governors, our mayors, our senators and representatives, our state legislators, and everybody else: by totting up the voters’ votes—all of them—and awarding the job to whichever candidate gets the largest number. And it does this without changing a word of the Constitution.[….]

    Here’s how it works: Suppose you could get a bunch of states to
    pledge that once there are enough of them to possess at least two
    hundred and seventy electoral votes—a majority of the Electoral
    College—they will thenceforth cast all their electoral votes for whatever candidate gets the most popular votes in the entire country.[….] No more ten or so battleground states, no more forty or so spectator states, just the United States—all of them, and all of the voters who live in them.

    Unless you’ve been following this pretty closely, it will surprise
    you to learn that, before this week, ten states (counting D.C.) had
    already signed on. Now it’s eleven, and between them they have a hundred sixty-five electoral votes—sixty-one per cent of the total needed to bring the compact into effect.[….]
