Newspaper unearths 19th-century
discrepancy about alleged lynching

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette*, by Sean D. Hamill

PITTSBURGH - For more than a century, the death of David Pierce has been a stain on Western Pennsylvania as the only victim of a lynching in the region. The African American man was said to have shot and killed Sanford White, a white superintendent of a coke works near Dunbar, Fayette County, on the morning of Dec. 19, 1899, after Mr. White intervened during a fight between Mr. Pierce and another white coke executive, Richard Cunningham. Pierce was described as a "Negro" and a "dangerous character" in the initial news report that went out over the telegraph coast to

Proves the NYTimes has been publishing "fake news" since at least 1899.

Interesting story to read over lunch.

Meanwhile, Planned Parenhood snuffs out more Black lives in New York City alone over the course of one year than all the lynchings since the end of the Civil War.

Let´s take a look at who was originally compiling these lists of "lynchings"... Tuskegee, the NAACP, the Chicago Tribune.

Like today´s Southern Poverty Law Center and similar "civil rights" outfits, they have no need or particular desire to be factual and truthful, especially if it does not advance the "racist, unjust" meme that is the heart of their purpose.

Historians who say things like "a thorough examination would find many more cases that were never reported on those old lists" are guessing, creating prophesies begging their fulfillment.

Perhaps these same academics will one day enlighten "bigoted America" and the world with a list of bogus "hate crimes" perpetrated to rile race relations. Anyone following this site sees such nearly weekly - swastikas, nooses, nasty notes left for wait staff, arson fires, etc. etc.

Interesting. I always assumed when a lynching was mentioned, that they were talking about a hanging. If a lynching is when three or more people take the law into their own hands and kill someone, then the Old West was a hotbed of lynching. It had nothing to do with race, however. For decades, there was "no law west of the pecos," and stealing cattle or especially a horse was a hanging offense, carried out immediately. God forbid if you molested a woman. Seems more civilized than what we have now in liberal cities.

What grabbed my attention in this was the following paragraph:
The mistaken case of Pierce´s lynching apparently occurred because the initial news report, appearing in print as soon as the afternoon papers on the day White died, relied on second- or thirdhand accounts of what happened. That became the story of record, despite later stories in the Pittsburgh papers that got most of the facts correct.

Sounds kind of like the way "hands up don´t shoot", "I can´t breathe", and many of the other incidents last year evolved.

So the media mis-reporting of incidents in the rush to be first seems not to be a new phenomenon; though the social-media-inflamed riots and BLM assassinations of cops seem new...

While the Tuskegee Institute/University is working on their list of lynching victims, I hope they delve into the role of Southern Democrats in these crimes against African-Americans.

Also, the Tuskegee Institute/University itself was part of a horrific "study" of men infected with syphilis - 399 men (plus infected wives and children) all because Tuskegee would not inform the men or provide treatment when treatment was readily available after penicillin was found to help (in 1947). This was a 40 year study, from 1932 to 1972.

Martina White laughs when someone points at the stopped clock that hangs on one of the pale walls in her mostly bare office in the state Capitol’s sprawling basement. “We’ll have to get that fixed soon,” she says, before turning out the lights after a long afternoon of listening to her colleagues bicker on the floor of the opulent state House chambers. [Snip] She’s trying to turn up the heat on Mayor Kenney by pushing, for a second time, a bill she authored to strip state funding from Philadelphia, unless he surrenders its sanctuary city designation.

Syphilis, on the rise across the United States for more than a decade, surged in Philadelphia last year, a worrisome signal that yet-to-be reported national numbers might reflect a similar pattern. Infections rose 36 percent in 2016, the Philadelphia Department of Public Health reported Wednesday, driven largely by men who have sex with men. National numbers lag a year behind, but other big cities are experiencing similar spikes, said Caroline Johnson, acting deputy commissioner, who oversees disease control. "It’s going on all over," she said. Just last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released an analysis showing that

When Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid triggered the nuclear option for most presidential appointees in 2013, Democrats were ecstatic. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes cheered the move as “an affirmative win for democracy,” while his colleague Rachel Maddow gushed “This is a huge freaking deal. This is like 3-inch headlines. This is like people who don’t even care about politics really ought to care about this!” On CNN, political analyst Paul Begala praised Reid´s maneuver, explaining it was necessary because Republicans had “so abused” the filibuster that Democrats couldn´t take it anymore.

A prominent, left-leaning investment fund has fired the Center City law firm of Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP for its defense of President Trump’s refusal to fully disengage from his business empire. H. Scott Wallace, cochair of the Wallace Global Fund, said in a March 28 letter to Morgan Lewis chair Jami Wintz McKeon that the firm’s representation of Trump “encourages impeachable offenses” and “is an unprecedented invitation to corruption and an assault on our democracy.” The investment fund finances efforts to reduce the role of money in politics and reverse global warming, among other causes.

LOS ANGELES California prosecutors on Tuesday charged two anti-abortion activists who made undercover videos of themselves trying to buy fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood with 15 felonies, saying they invaded the privacy of medical providers by filming without consent. The charges against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress come eight months after similar charges were dropped in Texas. State Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a longtime Congressional Democrat who took over the investigation in January, said in a statement that the state "will not tolerate the criminal recording of conversations."

Alphonse Maddin worked as a truck driver for TransAm Trucking. Like a lot of Americans, he did the kind of hard work that puts food on the table, and pays the bills and the taxes. The work that people like Maddin do every day may not receive lots of media attention, but our economy will not function without it. Such workers do not ask for a lot in return, just to be treated fairly and with dignity under our laws. Unfortunately, even that modest expectation has too often gone unfulfilled in recent years.

New history of movie ´Casablanca´
rounds up the usual suspects
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel*, by Chris Foran    Original Article
Posted By: Calvinesq- 3/6/2017 11:47:03     Post Reply
Casablanca isn´t only one of the most beloved movies of all time; it´s also one of the most written-about movies of all time. Noah Isenberg, director of screen studies and professor of culture and media at the New School, does a good job of synthesizing all of that writing in We´ll Always Have Casablanca. Junkies might not find a lot of new insights, but the book is a hugely readable and entertaining look at how Casablanca came to be, and how it came to be such an indelible part of American pop culture. Casablanca got its start in a 1940 play

Do you remember that “day without immigrants” protest that we talked about last week? It took place as predicted (and in fact demanded by activist organizers on the left). But in at least one location in Tennessee some of the participants learned a rapid and likely lasting lesson about the intersection of free speech and personal responsibility. Bradley Coatings, Inc. found out at the last minute that their tightly packed customer schedule was going to go up in flames when nearly 20 of their employees announced with roughly 12 hours notice that they would be taking part in the poorly

They pick the crops. Staff the restaurants. Mend the roofs. Mow the lawns. They work late at hospitals and airports. If you live in New Jersey, they probably pump your gas. What happens if they disappear? Unnerved by the high-profile arrests of 600 undocumented immigrants across six states last week -- not including Pennsylvania and New Jersey -- some Philadelphia-area businesses and restaurants that employ foreign-born staff, in the United States legally or not, are expected to take part Thursday in a “Day Without Immigrants” protest.

Faced with ongoing criticism from several activist groups, Helen L. "Nellie" Fitzpatrick, head of the city’s Office of LGBT Affairs, is planning to resign, according to two sources, one with the city and one who works closely with it on LGBT issues. [Snip] Several groups, specifically the Black and Brown Workers Collective, have been calling for Fitzpatrick’s departure since October, when the owner of the bar iCandy was caught on video using the N-word. The incident sparked more widespread reports of dress codes and bar policies that discriminated against black and transgender people.

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. The Republican president’s administration and two California governments that sued over the order disagreed about its scope. San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. But an attorney for the Justice Department,

"Because of changes in the media, we now have a situation in which everybody is listening to people who already agree with them, and are further and further reinforcing their own realities to the neglect of the common reality that allows us to have a healthy debate, and then try to find common ground and actually move solutions forward," Obama said in his

Ex-President Barack Obama is the mystery man of American politics. Given the absence of a viable paper trail, nobody can say for sure who he is. He manifests for us as a figure of multiple identities: a Christian, a Muslim, a secularist, a socialist, a humanist, an intellectual, a man of the people. His lack of definable substance, his inner absence, has been an important political advantage. As Obama himself confessed (or boasted) in The Audacity of Hope, this layering of anonymities enabled him to “serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their
