Guyana: Emancipation Day 2019: Emancipation at a glance – editorial

Emancipation at a glance

Aug 01, 2019  Editorial – Stabroek News

Emancipation! There is a certain soaring expansiveness to the mere thought, a reaching for the meaning and holding close of that word, a cherishing of all that it holds and promises. Man was made to be as free as the wind, as unshackled as a storm in a crashing symphony of dauntless human spirit, human will, human potential.

It came not quite two centuries ago for a people long stripped and punished with knee and face pressed into stone of the ground. It was the cruelest of times.      Continue reading

U.S. – America has never been – and never will be – a white nation

  – By MOHAMED HAMALUDIN

The year to watch for is not 2020. It is 2045.

That is when, the Brookings Institution says, based on Census projections, (See article below)—- whites will drop from a current 60.7 to 49.7 percent of the population. Latinos will increase from 18 to 24.6 percent, African Americans from 12.3 to 13.1 percent, Asians from 5.6 to 7.9 percent.

US Births Are at Record-Low Levels – Why Aren’t We Asking Why?

The Most Revolutionary Act

U.S. Births Are at Record-Low Levels—Why Aren’t We Asking Why?

By the Children’s Health Defense Team

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released its annual statistical overview of births in America. The agency reported that total U.S. births plummeted to a 32-year “record low” in 2018—particularly for teenagers and women in their twenties. But though 2018 may have set a new record, other recent years relay much the same story: total births and the general fertility rate (births per 1,000 reproductive-age women) have been falling steadily for well over a decade.

The “baby bust” trend is not unique to the United States. A Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation-funded study published in 2018 in The Lancet reported that nearly half of countries worldwide had fertility rates below the “replacement level” of approximately 2.1 children per woman’s lifetime—a situation unheard of anywhere on the planet back in 1950
