UK: Black Troops Were Welcome In Britain, But Jim Crow Wasn’t: – By Alan Rice | The Conversation

THE RACE RIOT OF ONE NIGHT IN JUNE 1943

Alan Rice | The Conversation

Bullet holes found in the wood surrounds of the NatWest Bank in Bamber Bridge, in Lancashire in the north of England, in the late 1980s led to the rediscovery of an event that saw some of the few shots fired in anger in England during World War II, which had been largely forgotten. These were NOT shots fired by invading troops, but by American GIs against their own military police.

Intrigued by his discovery, Clinton Smith, the black British maintenance worker who discovered the holes in the woodwork, asked locals how they could have got there. Smith was told that they were the remnants of the Battle of Bamber Bridge, when black American troops stationed in the town faced off against white US Army military police on the night of June 24-25, 1943.        Continue reading

OPINION: Pelting dogs and the mentally disturbed – By Francis Quamina Farrier

  — By Francis Quamina Farrier
The youngster was pelting a man of unsound mind who was walking relatively peacefully along a street in Georgetown. The man seemed no threat to anyone. However, being poorly dressed and with his funny actions as he walked along, shaking his limbs in an unnatural way, disclosed that he was most likely, someone of unsound mind. I asked the youngster why he was pelting the man. “Mista, he mad,” was the practical response, which was embellished with some boyish giggles.
I took the opportunity to give the youngster a very brief lecture about respect for others, no matter who. I considered that to be my responsibility as an elder. He seemed to accept that it is wrong to visit violence on someone because they are perceived to be mad. Even the mentally disturbed should be viewed as being human and as such must be shown respect and compassion.

USA: Can Democrats Beat The Odds In 2022? – Katrina vanden Heuvel | The Washington Post

 OPINION: By Katrina vanden Heuvel | The Washington Post

Would you put big money on Democrats winning big in 2022? Recently, a wealthy progressive donor stated on a Listserv for political junkies that he expected Democrats to sweep the House and Senate by large margins. Conventional wisdom, of course, holds that Democrats are likely to lose control of the House and quite possibly the Senate, putting an abrupt end to the progressive reforms that President Biden is advancing. Can Democrats beat the odds next year?       Continue reading
