What America Means When It Asks For Your Papers


Racism, as seen in 2011. No N-word necessary. Racism was never soley about a slur.
Racism = Prejudice + Power…

A MUST READ article.

Jonathan Blanks reflects on the history of black disenfranchisement, coining his “new nigger rule” inspired by comedian Paul Mooney:

A NNR is a legal or administrative procedure which is enforced with benign pretense, yet has the demonstrable effect of abetting racism, prejudice, or otherwise just screwing the black guy. Historical examples include, but are not limited to, the Grandfather Clause, poll taxes, and literacy/constitutional knowledge tests to vote. -Adam Serwer
