MORE HILLARY CLINTON UNVEILING: Black Children to Prison Pipeline Matters

Bill Clinton is sometimes known as the first African-American president and Hillary Clinton won the South Carolina primary with an overwhelming majority of the African-American vote. But what is their true record on helping the black community? Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, presents a Final Judgment on Hillary Clinton's true record with African-Americans.

During a speech on criminal justice reform, she was confronted on her use of the label "Super Predators" for Black children with problematic behavior and equating them to wild dogs that need to be brought "to heel".

In response, Clinton lied... Casually...
"You want to hear the facts, or you just wanna talk... You know what, Nobody's ever asked me before... I'll be happy to address it, but you're the first person to ask me..."
And then invalidated... Casually...
"Okay, back to the issues."

She was asked, simply, to apologize for the role she played in mass incarceration... that her husband admitted publicly was a terrible mistake.

Her and her husband used welfare "reform", criminal justice "reform" and trade "reform" to destroy the lives of an entire generation of Black children from Arkansas to Haiti.

They celebrated the immediate results and her husband waited until after his two terms and "immunity" to admit his role in the moneymaking horrors.

This is not an exaggeration. The info is readily available.

The worst kind of racist is the one that likes you only in an inferior position, and expects your blind support... even to your own detriment.

They expect you to sell out your people for the opportunity to keep company with your superiors.

Open your eyes.

Protect your neck.

GLOBAL BLACKNESS: We Are Everyone: Intimidated by the Grandeur of Black World History?

Nayara Justino thought her dreams had come true when she was selected as the Globeleza carnival queen in 2013 after a public vote on one of Brazil's biggest TV shows. Subscribe to The Guardian ► http://is.gd/subscribeguardian But some regarded her complexion to be too dark to be an acceptable queen.

NAYARA JUSTINO (sOURCE: uol)

While I am happy for Nayara Justino... and I know that there is a good percentage of the populace that needs to be struck in the head with the reality of that barbaric, satanic, historical experience...
I do not have it in me to watch another TV or Cinema production about the Black "slave" experience.
I just can't.
There are many that are intimidated by the grandeur of Black world history. They are afraid that, to address the whole of Black culture and personality would diminish theirs.
But when has that ever happened?
Where in history have we done anything but enhance and enrich every thing around us?
Who can say that they are not better for Black style and influence... and say it without Black contributions to their "voice"?
We are more than just the result of oppression and abuse. We have more to say than to scream out in pain... 
"We" are everyone. "We" own everyone's stories.
This is why I art.
I want to help to show the world a complete human existence, one "work" at a time...
And help it be made whole.
Ambitious?
So be it.

SAY IT LOUD: Black Power in Every Language by Onjena Yo

These concepts have evolved over many late night conversations... born out of pain and love and laughter. As a Black woman and a Spanish language teacher, it was quite natural that my sister would translate "Say it loud, I'm Black and I'm proud" to Spanish. This and that 30 Rock episode starring Tracy Morgan, prompted me to research how to say "Black" in every language.

I’ve learned the word ‘black’ in every language, just so I know when to be offended. Russian “tcherny,” Korean “heug-in [hooking],” dolphin “eeee eeee eee eeee.”
— Tracy Jordan, 30 Rock: Season 4: Episode 17

Source: UnlikelyWords.com [*hooking edited to "heug-in" or "흑인"]

I came across an abundance of enthusiastic databases of ethnic slurs (for the sake of academic research, of course..). Digging a little deeper, I found that Black people were often called a term that was rooted in racist etymology by the "majority" of that country (e.g., derivative of slave, non-believer). I was on the hunt for what we called ourselves around the globe...a color in some cases... a tribe in others. The time frame deliberately spanned beyond the "transatlantic slave" era. This activity led me inward to a memory of my father, who, during parent's weekend, drove around my small New England college campus blasting James Brown's song, "Say it loud, I'm Black and I'm proud!" I've only begun to scratch the surface on what identifying and celebrating Blackness means to me, as an American, as a woman and as a person raised in a third culture *mix of Black and Korean.
