Exposing The Truth Behind ||North Korea’s Accuses the US of Human Rights Violations


Let’s get something out of the way first. I live for articles like this for two reason. First they prove to me that what I experience and go through on the Daily isn’t a figment of my mind. Second, I love listening to bullshit justifications. Let’s start at the end, well because it’s not cheating if you start from there.  This is how all articles will respond to the North Korea accusations after listing them:

  1. Yes to a degree it’s true but Americans are diligently working on it, the same way an anorexic or bulimic is working on that meal the wait keeps asking about
  2. Whatever is done can’t be as bad as North Korea – You know that place where our post WW2 policies, and Cold War policies helped pave the way for the tension in the Koreas today. Not to mention the Korean war thing.

1. “Under the citizenship act, racialism is getting more severe in the U.S. The gaps between the minorities and the whites are very wide in the exercise of such rights to work and elect.”

2. “The U.S. true colors as a kingdom of racial discrimination was fully revealed by last year’s case that the Florida Court gave a verdict of not guilty to a white policeman who shot to death an innocent black boy.”

3. “That’s why 52 percent of the Americans have said that racism still exists in the country while 46 percent contended that all sorts of discrimination would be everlasting.”

4. “The U.S. is a living hell as elementary rights to existence are ruthlessly violated.”

5. “At present, an average of 300,000 people a week are registered as unemployed, but any proper measure has not been taken.”

6. “The housing price soared 11.5 percent last year than 2012 and 13.2 percent in January this year than 2013, leaving many people homeless.”

7. “The number of impoverished people increased to 46.5 millions last year, and one sixth of the citizens and 20-odd percent of the children are in the grip of famine in New York City.”

8. “All sorts of crimes rampant in the U.S. pose a serious threat to the people’s rights to existence and their inviolable rights.”

9. “The U.S. government has monitored every movement of its citizens and foreigners, with many cameras and tapping devices and even drones involved, under the pretext of ‘national security.'”

10. “Meanwhile, bills on easing arms control were adopted in various states of the country, boosting murderous crimes. As a result, the U.S. has witnessed an increasing number of gun-related crimes in all parts of the country and even its military bases this year. In this regard, the United Nations on April 10 put the U.S. on the top of the world list of homicide rates.”

11. “The U.S. also has 2.2 millions of prisoners at present, the highest number in the world. For lack of prisons on the part of the government, individuals are providing detention facilities to make money.”

12. “A Russian TV said that in the U.S. the wealthy classes are now keen on the investment in providing private prisons for their high profit and so more people will be imprisoned.”

13. “Its chief executive, Obama, indulges himself in luxury almost every day, squandering hundred millions of dollars on his foreign trip in disregard of his people’s wretched life.”

The Truth

I am kind of amazing that the first three things deal with race.  I am also surprised that you can quote Russian TV as a source. Obama indulging in senseless luxury, I cannot see that so much probably because he hasn’t hosted an MTV-Cribs  episode, inside the White house. This is what a report concludes, I’ll highlight the most asinine parts:

Several of the issues the report touches on are certainly real problems in America today, and for the most part, the report’s numbers and stats check out (though, as the Washington Post points out, only the stats on gun crime are suspect).

But there’s a couple problems. First, Americans, for the most part, know about these issues and are working to improve on these problems. Americans can openly complain about their country and government without fearing a trip to a work camp, so the option to change and improve America is a very real one (even if it’s also a difficult one).

What makes us right and north Korea wrong ? It’s like to rapist talking about  who has better stats. Neither country has a moral or ethical standing. Look at how conciliatory the language is.

This Korean report touches – that bullshit. In the realm of touches there is a great expanse of types. First Date touching is not the same as the 5 month touching. This is purposely weak  I feel to lessen the impact of our abuses and give the illusion that we aren’t the biggest hypocrites. Can it be “touching” if for the most part the stats check out ? If for the most part shit checks out is because I fucking nailed it.

Americans for the most part knows about these issues? We are working to solve these issues?  I dont see that. This is what I see: Instead of at least talking about the issues, we have highly polarized shouting matches. Then we conclude on an impressive agenda of not making rape and race jokes. We help the poor by criminalizing homelessness, cutting education bankrupting the nation through war, and work to expand the every growing divide between the wealthy and the rest of the populace.

The Real issue here can be summed up by the following picture. Keep in mind our neocolonialistic policies aren’t taken into account and all that democracy toppling/puppet government installation we did during The Cold War.

Thoughts, Facts, Discussion on Scholarships and African American Students

A few weeks ago teenager Kwasi Enin caught the nations attention when he became one of a select few high school seniors to be accepted into all 8 ivy league schools. Many people felt that he got accepted into so many school because he is black. In other words Enin couldn’t have gotten into these schools on his own merit.
 
I would like to challenge that belief with of course facts, statistics and clear cut logical deductions. Before I do that please allow me to dispel a few myths about African Americans and the United States Education System

 FACTS

  • African-American men are grossly over-represented in the penal system; however, there are more African-American males in college than in prison, as of 2011.
  • The high school dropout rate for African-American males has actually hit a historic low. According to a 2013 Education Week study, about 62% of African-Americans completed high school in 2010 (the most recent year for which the necessary data was available), compared to 80% of white students. The increase represents a 30% narrowing of the gap between black and white high school students.
  • According to the National Center for Education Statistics, from 1976 to 2010, “the percentage of black students [enrolled in college] rose from 9% to 14%. During the same period, the percentage of white students fell from 83% to 61%.”

Some Data

I did some research and found out that less than 5% of all scholarship programs and less than 10% of  the total number of individual scholarships consider the student’s race among their eligibility criteria. Most race-restricted scholarships also include additional criteria based on academic performance, extracurricular activities and community service.

Private Scholarship

Based on data derived by  the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS) from the National Center for Education Statistics, indicates that Caucasians are, in fact, quite privileged in obtaining scholarships. While there are very few private scholarships that are explicitly restricted to Caucasian students, Caucasian students receive a disproportionately greater share of private scholarship funding. Caucasian students represent 69.3% of private scholarship recipients but only 61.8% of the undergraduate student population. This is in contrast with minority students, who represent 30.5% of scholarship recipients and 38.0% of the undergraduate  student population. Caucasian students are 40% more likely to win private scholarships than minority students.

Distribution of Private Scholarship Funding

Federal Need Based Grants

The Federal Pell Grant is the largest need-based federal grant program. While minority students are more likely to receive such  need-based grants than Caucasian students, the distribution is largely consistent with the prevalence of  minority students in the low-income student population. Minority students receive more need-based grants because minority students are more likely to be low income than Caucasian students. Of students who submitted the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), 83.0% of African-American students, 79.6% of Latino students and 69.5% of Asian students are low-income, compared with only 55.3% of Caucasian students.

My Thoughts

What I think is happening is that times are tough and its more difficult to secure a future. Whenever resources in this case education resources are scarce there will be a lot of competition. What this is, is fighting over crumbs. The general trend show that minorities tend to get more need based government aid because they come from lower income families. However Caucasian get the lion’s share of scholarships. That make sense. That’s just how the system is set up. I ain’t mad at anyone for that. There’s more to be said but that’s another blog post.
