The Third Rail
"'History furnishes ... no record of a successful intermingling between the great divisions of mankind,' warned the Baltimore Sun, the organ of city establishment, in 1865. Two decades later, the Sun suggested the best course might be just to 'let the colored people dissipate away.'"

"That was Baltimore mass rail, two decades after the system was proposed: two lines that did not connect, far short of what one needed for the network effect of a true system. Inevitably, the inadequacies of public rail left many Baltimoreans ever more reliant upon the buses — a bewildering scattering of lines that typically followed the old streetcar routes, comprehensible only to those with no alternative but to rely on them."

Losing my religion for equality
"The justification of discrimination against women and girls on grounds of religion or tradition, as if it were prescribed by a Higher Authority, is unacceptable."

"During the years of the early Christian church women served as deacons, priests, bishops, apostles, teachers and prophets. It wasn't until the fourth century that dominant Christian leaders, all men, twisted and distorted Holy Scriptures to perpetuate their ascendant positions within the religious hierarchy."  jimmy_carter  religion  2009  2000s  discrimination  christianity  baptist  women  equality  justice  politics  politician  power  bible

"He was more carefully listened to and his authority less frequently questioned. He stopped being interrupted in meetings. At one conference, another scientist said, 'Ben gave a great seminar today—but then his work is so much better than his sister's.' (The scientist didn't know Ben and Barbara were the same person.) 'This is why women are not breaking into academic jobs at any appreciable rate,' he wrote in response to Larry Summers’s famous gaffe implying women were less innately capable at the hard sciences. 'Not childcare. Not family responsibilities,' he says. 'I have had the thought a million times: I am taken more seriously.'”

also good comment summary - "the villagers had sound economic reasons to lop more tree branches, they noticed the change and realized that it could become a problem, and they are compensating for it by reducing their dependence on the forest (which also allows the trees to grow more anyway)."

What it looks like when a bank goes out of its way to avoid minorities - The Washington Post
via Akira

"Hudson City, unlike several other banks recently accused of discrimination, wasn't charged with denying loans to qualified minorities, or jacking up their interest rates. In a subtle but more insidious claim, the government says it was 'structuring its business so as to avoid majority-Black-and-Hispanic neighborhoods.' ... Hudson City, in other words, was set up to ensure that few borrowers in minority neighborhoods ever even applied in the first place, according to prosecutors."

"Seito introduced the translated version of Ibsen’s A Doll's House. The play is about a woman who forges her father’s signature to save her husband's life. Instead of being grateful, her husband reacts with anger and disgust. She then decides to leave him. The government did not like the dissemination of these types of values."

White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack
"I think whites are carefully taught not to recognize white privilege, as males are taught not to recognize male privilege. So I have begun in an untutored way to ask what it is like to have white privilege. I have come to see white privilege as an invisible package of unearned assets that I can count on cashing in each day, but about which I was 'meant' to remain oblivious."

7. I can be sure that my children will be given curricular materials that testify to the existence of their race.
11. I can arrange to protect my children most of the time from people who might not like them.
13. I can speak in public to a powerful male group without putting my race on trial.
15. I am never asked to speak for all the people of my racial group.

"For me white privilege has turned out to be an elusive and fugitive subject. The pressure to avoid it is great, for in facing it I must give up the myth of meritocracy"

Arizona Orders Tucson to End Mexican-American Studies Program -
The debate over the program’s future, Mr. Romero said, proves more than ever the need for the program. “There’s a fierce anti-Latino sentiment in this state,” he said. “These courses are about justice and equity, and what is happening is that the Legislature is trying to narrow the reality of those things.

“Who are the true Americans here — those embracing our inalienable rights or those trying to diminish them?”
