as tragic as it is the murder of Trayvon Martin is not the real issue, the real issue is the justification / lack of response by the police force

this needs signing:

Why This Is Important

On February 26, Trayvon Martin was shot and killed as he walked to a family member's home from a convenience store where he had just bought some candy. He was only 17 years-old.

Dear Eddie, Yes, it is available as an ebook, and I think you can get it through Continuum (the link is below) or through Amazon.  If you get a chance to read it, let me know what you think.

Talk to you later,

Mike is your book available in ebook format?

Comment by Michael Lackey on March 9, 2012 at 5:13pm

Dear Comrades, Just wanted to let you all know that my new book was just released yesterday.  It is titled: The Modernist God State: A Literary Study of the Nazis' Christian Reich.  Here's the link:

I demonstrate that Hitler and the Nazis considered themselves Christian.  What some of you might find interesting, especially you Ralph, is my work on Richard Wright.  I also do an extensive analysis of Alice Walker's work.  If any of you have questions, please feel free to ask.

All Best,

Greetings again. I've been too busy to check in as often as I should. Just a few notes: (1) Some of the remarks on this wall could be starters for discussions in the discussions forum, such as "Beyond the Political Spectrum. (2) "Slavery By Another Name" was one of the best documentaries of the Jim Crow era I've seen, as it focused on an aspect of exploitation missing from many excellent earlier documentaries. (3) I arrived at the DC Day of Solidarity two hours after it ended, but many folks were still there. (4) I got a lot out of Black History Month, which for me is a year-round affair, anyway. One such endeavor was looking into poetry anthologies of the Harlem Renaissance era. (5) As far as freethought intellectual activity, I've been reading Ludwig Feuerbach, which has given me a whole new arsenal to draw on. (6) How many of you folks will be attending the Reason Rally in DC on March 24?

Joe, thank you for posting that link.  This was the most moving documentary I've seen in a long time.  It's a truly important, awful history, in the same category as the German holocaust in brutality and the collusion of an entire society against fellow human beings.  It brought tears to my eyes more than once.  Slavery, we have all learned about in some way.  Peonage is something I never learned about until now.

Slavery by Another Name

In my opinion the DC Day of Solidarity was success. I had great time it was nice to finally meet African American woman of like mine. I look forward to continuing to work with these individuals
