    Freedom Rider: The Causes of World War III

    by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

    The world is being enveloped by chaos, dragged towards an apocalypse of unknown proportions by its sole superpower. “The absence of a competing power only emboldened the United States to renew its long history of intervention, invasion and aggression.” Washington is huffing and puffing a grotesque ultimatum to the planet: submit, or we will bring down all of humanity’s houses.

    From Victim to Colonial Settler: Shifting the Paradigm on Israel

    by BAR editor and columnist Ajamu Baraka

    U.S. and western European popular support for Israeli aggression against Arabs is rooted in racist, colonial notions of “’white man’s burden,’ ‘manifest destiny,’ the ‘doctrine of discovery,’ and ‘American exceptionalism’ – expressions of the arrogant pathology of the white supremacist worldview.” It is imperative to undermine the “innocent settler” narrative “that justifies Israeli state and settler violence.”

    by Solomon Comissiong

    Obama-Aid ought to be tasting stale and nasty after three-plus years, but Black folks are still swilling it. “His supporters did not give a damn that he backed FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) or even that he justified the amoral verdict that acquitted the murderous police officers who took the life of Sean Bell.” Obama-Aid is definitely bad for the brain. In essence, people of color in America have allowed their collective conscience to be neutered.”
