    POSITION STATEMENT

     

    It is impossible for approximately 3,700 police officers to maintain peace and tranquility in a city of 600,000 people unless there is community cooperation and involvement. The Community must be intimately involved in coming up with its own solutions and deciding its own destiny. Plans made for the community instead of with the community tend to fail because the community is not fully invested in the process. History and research ..

    I attended Southwestern High School with Dr. Andrey Bundley. We graduated in 1979 not completely satisfied with the education we had received, and determined to continue the learning process. Our experiences in urban Baltimore were similar. We had watched the miseducation process claim many victims. We watched hopeful kindergartners grow to hopeless high school students. We looked into the eyes of parents who saw children full of promise turn into broken promises. We both vowed to do something about the problem - to solve the hate that hate made - to be a part of the solution. ..

    If we must die - let it not be like hogs hunted and penned in an inglorious spot.

    These are the times that try men's souls.

                                        - Thomas Paine, The American Crisis

     

    The ones who are actually hurt cannot do any harm. All others remain untouched, which is a persuasion to keep quiet, yet they also become fearful of making a mistake and suffering like those who have already been despoiled.

    I remember my brother and me sitting on the pitted cement front steps of our row home in the Edmonson Village area of Baltimore. We sat in the heat of that July night with nothing but love for each other; nothing but love for our family and no regrets about our lives of struggle. We were proud to be Black. We were proud to be the Powers' brothers and we were happy that some force greater than either of us or both of us had brought us to this place on this night.

Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream, but he not a dreamer, he was a revolutionary. He had a vision of what America could be - but there is a difference between a vision and a dream.

    Buffoon - a jester: clown

     

      Although tom was to outdistance every other type and dominate American hearth and home, he had serious competition from a group of coons. They appeared in a series of black films presenting the negro as amusement object and black buffoon. They lacked the single-mindness of tom. 

      [The Coon] is harmless and congenial, he is a first cousin to the tom, yet he distinguishes himself by his quaint, naïve, and comic philosophizing...like tom's contentment and the coon's antics, has always been used to indicate the black man's satisfaction with ..

    When the Civil War erupted in 1861, there were approximately four million slaves and five hundred thousand free blacks in the United States. Many blacks concluded that if the Union prevailed then this war could bring emancipation to the slaves. Those who initially sought to join the war effort were turned away, ..

  • Blowback

    Intro

    By Tyrone Powers, Ph.D. 

    Blowback is defined as the unintentional consequences of military and other secret operations carried out by the United States.  In most cases it means that those the United States strike against find a way - sooner or later - to strike back. Of late, terrorism has been the "strike-back" weapon or tactic of choice.  

    Groups and "Third-World" nations often believe that they have no other alternative but to strike back against what they perceive as U.S aggression and imperialist designs. It is their sincere belief that U.S. wants to expand its empire to control the ..
