In a world where white is considered of the ‘norm’ and everything outside of that dominion is different – society needs eye/mind openers such as shows like this which gives face to the insides of the multi-faceted truths of black people.

 

* Racism is an ugly truth that will forever be a factor in this world as long as white people continue to feel and force their supremacist terrorism on any persons who are not of their group.

New Family Detention Centers Hold Immigrant Women and Children Without Bond as Asylum Claims Pend


The Obama administration has opened two new family detention centers to hold hundreds of women and children from Central America who fled to the United States reportedly to escape violence in their home countries. While most of the 63,000 unaccompanied minors detained at the border since January have now been placed with family members as their cases are processed, those caught with their mothers are being held without bond. A 600-bed detention center run by GEO Group in Karnes City, Texas, opened at the beginning of August and is reportedly already full. Democracy Now! producer Renée Feltz visits a second detention center in Artesia, New Mexico, to report on the poor conditions and lack of due process for migrants, and the lawyers mobilizing to assist them. “Children were not eating. Children were getting very sick,” says attorney Megan Jordi. “Every child I saw looked incredibly emaciated and had a hollow look in their eyes.”

New ABC series Black-Ish

New ABC series Black-Ish

Just posted today on http://www.necolebitchie.com

The ABC network is adding a a splash of color to their line-up this fall with their new comedy Black-ish starring Tracee Ellis Ross, Anthony Anderson, and Laurence Fishburne. The new show follows an upper-middle class black family who lives in white suburbia, and focuses on the battle they face daily to blend in the world around them while holding on to their black culture.

Andre Johnson has a great job, a beautiful wife, Rainbow, four kids, and a colonial home in the ‘burbs. But has success brought too much assimilation for this black family? With a little help from his dad, Dre sets out to establish a sense of cultural identity for his family that honors their past while embracing the future.

I am not a fan of mainstream television, it is just a way to keep a majority of society dumb and blind to things that really matter. Most shows which are made up of a black family on networks like NBC consists of racist undertones whether be little or big.

But, we will see how this show turns out.
