FB Exclusive: A Candid Discussion With Pulitzer Prize Winner Isabel Wilkerson PDF Print E-mail
Written by Tracy Crain   

Some things are not obvious until someone points them out to us. An example of that is the pursuit of opportunity. What people do for a chance, like moving hundreds of miles away, makes a difference.

It is something Isabel Wilkerson knows all too well. There was a time when much of the south lost its cheap labor to other regions. This is part of the lesson that comes from Wilkerson’s new book, The Warmth of Other Suns, that offers a historical look at the way six million black Americans fled their homes for an uncertain existence in the urban North and West. “It was a great leap of faith,” she said in an Arkansas Free Press exclusive, “that changed the lives of so many.”

The Haves & Have Nots: An Open Invitation To State Rep Hunt PDF Print E-mail
Written by Michelle Canulla   

Ooh, That's wonderful.

The mega "6 flags over Jesus" churches are doing what plantations use to do. Column envy.  Building constantly before shower and using all Palladian architecture, which has consistently been used to divide the haves from the have nots.

Hence, this is why Government buildings are like that. And they are enormous to further reduce your significance in the grand scheme.

Oh, let us also hit that Pulaski Bank on Chenal. No, that is horrible. Right now, though, I want to invite the South Dakota State Representative Roger Hunt to Arkansas so that he can assist with all the children who are left in DHS care.

An Open Letter to War Loving (Democratic/Republican) Frauds PDF Print E-mail
Written by Cindy Sheehan   

Dear War Loving (Democratic or Republican) Fraud,

I know many of you don't really care, but in exactly 15 days, it will be seven years since my oldest son (whom I never "abandoned" and raised with his father and three siblings until he went into the Army when he was 21), Casey was killed in this Empire's insane War OF Terror. Was Casey the first, or the last? No--but he was my first and the shock knocked me out of my quiet complacency--which was just as wrong as the Empire's unending wars.
