Racism Alive and Well In Mississippi

Most of us know that racism is still alive and well.  What many do not realize the extent.

I found this footage from a link on Google+

Video has surfaced implicating seven white teenagers in a gruesome June 26 Mississippi hate crime that left one black man mutilated and dead.
The recently released footage shows the teens beating and ultimately running over 49-year-old James Craig Anderson. The suspects reportedly left a Hinds County, Mississippi party together with the intention of finding a black victim and drove to a nearby predominantly black area of Jackson where they attacked Anderson, the first black man they saw upon exiting the highway.

Life Before the Internet

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what the world would have been like if we had the Internet in the 60′s.   We only had books,  newspapers, magazines and network TV.  I envy the youth of today.  You have so many more tools to change your world.
Today with all the information available at our fingertips many of us are still mislead by misinformation.  We still have unjust wars, children are still dying of hunger and malnutrition, bigotry and hate are still alive and well.  Most of the problems that many in my generation tried to end are still with us.
My biggest hope is that our youth will learn from our mistakes and use these new tools available today to change their world into a better place for themselves and their children.

Are there banned books where you live?

Let's make a list of banned books of today and yesterday and discuss them.
