See on Scoop.itOUR COMMON GROUND News Board •● ☥●• The Third Eye Parenthesis

A Republican lawmaker in Missouri wants to tie welfare benefits to school attendance with a bill that would require 90 percent attendance for children of families receiving benefits.

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus‘s insight:

In Missouri, state Rep. Stacey Newman (D-St. Louis) told HuffPost she sees problems with Cookson’s legislation. By mandating that welfare students attend public schools, the measure would prevent children from attending private or parochial schools.

The Oppression of Black People, The Crimes of This System and the Revolution We Need

See on Scoop.itOUR COMMON GROUND Informed Truth and Resistance

This special issue of Revolution newspaper will answer those questions. We’ll show how the oppression of Black people has been at the very heart of the fabric and functioning of this country, since its beginning and up to the present time, and what has actually caused these centuries of suffering. We’ll analyze the massive struggles waged against this oppression, showing why, even when they’ve won concessions, their powerful call for justice has been betrayed by the system each time—and what lessons can be drawn for a revolutionary struggle that actually could win liberation. We’ll get into how a revolution could deal with and overcome that oppression, bringing in an entirely different, and far better, system as part of getting to a whole new, emancipated world. We’ll analyze other programs and show how anything short of revolution is a false path and a dead end. And we’ll point to why such a revolution is possible—yes, even in the U.S.—and what must be done to actually prepare for and carry out such a revolution.

 

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus‘s insight:

There will never be a revolutionary movement in this country that doesn’t fully unleash and give expression to the sometimes openly expressed, sometimes expressed in partial ways, sometimes expressed in wrong ways, but deeply, deeply felt desire to be rid of these long centuries of oppression [of Black people]. There’s never gonna be a revolution in this country, and there never should be, that doesn’t make that one key foundation of what it’s all about.Bob Avakian, Chairman of the 
Revolutionary Communist Party, USA,
