Like apple pie and baseball — and football

first_imgTom Morello — renowned Black guitarist in the band Rage Against the Machine — spoke truth to power when he said June 7 that “racism is as American as apple pie and baseball” — a reference repeatedly invoked following the lynching of George Floyd. (“American” is wrongly used to refer to the United States; it is a racist negation of all the other countries of the Americas, which include North, Central and South America and the Caribbean.)Morello could have added football along with baseball. He could also have added sexism. Protests demand Washington, D.C., NFL team drop racist name and mascot, Minneapolis, 2019.White supremacy and misogyny have converged around the Washington, D.C., football team. On July 13, Washington NFL team owner Dan Snyder announced that its vile name, a slur against Indigenous people that refers to settler murder for a bounty, would be changed. Days later, the Washington Post broke the story of at least 15 women team employees who had been subjected to numerous incidents of sexual harassment.Originally a Boston team known as the Braves, the football team changed its name to R——s in 1933 and moved to Washington in 1937. Efforts to have the name changed span decades, with complaints reported in Washington newspapers as early as 1971. After the team’s 1988 victory in Super Bowl XXII, led by the first Black quarterback in NFL history, then-owner Jack Cooke was hit with numerous letters from Indigenous activists asking for a name change, which went unheeded. In 1992, 2,000 people demonstrated outside Super Bowl XXVI, a match between Washington and Buffalo. Many more protests against the name followed, but successive team owners remained intransigent.  A number of Indigenous Tribal Councils called for the name to be dropped. In 2013, 10 members of Congress wrote Snyder requesting a name change. He told USA Today: “We’ll never change the name. …  It’s that simple. NEVER — you can use caps.” In 2018, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who represents the owners, reaffirmed that the racist name would stick.Neither Snyder nor Goodell have suddenly become enlightened on racial sensitivity — far from it. Yet the July 13 news release stated, “Today, we are announcing we will be retiring the [R——s] name and logo.” It was only when FedEx, Nike and Pepsico threatened to end their multimillion-dollar endorsements that Snyder agreed to the name change.The Cleveland Indians baseball team has also indicated that their name is changing. The despicable “Chief Wahoo” mascot — protested since the 1960s — had already been removed from player uniforms, but was still available on fan merchandise.Sexism rampant in sports-industrial complexProtests demand Washington, D.C., NFL team drop racist name and mascot, Minneapolis, 2019.Not surprisingly, the same Washington team bosses who refused to budge on the issue of racism were likewise complicit in a case of workplace sexual abuse. The July 16 Washington Post describes in detail what Emily Applegate and 14 other former workers had to endure: “The allegations raised by Applegate and others — running from 2006 to 2019 — span most of Snyder’s tenure as owner and fall into two categories: unwelcome overtures or comments of a sexual nature and exhortations to wear revealing clothing and flirt with clients to close sales deals. Among the men accused of harassment and verbal abuse are three former members of Snyder’s inner circle and two longtime members of the personnel department.”Specifically, the women have accused Larry Michael, former senior vice president of content and its play-by-play radio announcer; Alex Santos, former director of pro personnel; Richard Mann II, former assistant director of pro personnel; Dennis Greene, former president of business operations; and Mitch Gershman, former chief operating officer. Michael abruptly retired, and Santos and Mann were fired.“It was the most miserable experience of my life,” said Applegate, referring to the year she worked as team director of marketing. While the women did not experience harassment by Dan Snyder directly, they regard him as responsible for the team’s toxic workplace culture.While the NFL may fine the Washington team for inappropriate conduct, it appears that Commissioner Goodell will not exercise his power to force owner Snyder to sell the team. In fact, Goodell has been silent on Snyder hiring a legal team to “investigate” the accusations.Goodell did not compel Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson to sell his team after Sports Illustrated exposed his blatantly racist and sexist conduct. The team was nevertheless sold in 2018, and recently the statue of Richardson was removed from outside the Panther stadium.When Richardson owned the Panthers, he was known to grope and make degrading comments to women workers. Under capitalism, putting up with this widespread abuse is often a condition of employment. Complaining draws retaliation, including firing.Misogyny, ingrained in the culture of sports-for-profit, is also evident in the gross salary disparities between men and women — the only two genders even acknowledged — in professional sports.The big pictureSports and entertainment do not exist in a vacuum. Karl Marx said: “The ideas of the ruling class are in every epoch the ruling ideas.” Their ideas include white supremacy and misogyny, which logically permeate the world of for-profit professional sports. The ruling class isn’t just hateful; it profits from the super-exploitation of the most oppressed and uses bigotry to divide the working classReversals of previously held, hard-line positions are happening because of the powerful mass movement in the streets that is aggressively taking on systemic racism — of which police terror is one piece. Athletes and other celebrities are speaking up in solidarity — and coming under fire for doing so.Protests demand Washington, D.C., NFL team drop racist name and mascot, Minneapolis, 2014.The multinational, working-class youth understand that the ugly history of slavery and genocide has been upheld and sanitized by statues of killers and enslavers, the widespread presence of Confederate flags and the use of demeaning sports team names and mascots. This powerful rebellion is taking down these hated symbols all over the country and even worldwide. Not long before this historic development, the #MeToo movement gave voice to millions of women and gender-oppressed people who survived sexual abuse.That is the context in which to understand the retiring of team names in Washington and Cleveland, along with any attempts to address sexual harassment by the racist, sexist sports-industrial complex.

Outrage about death of two journalists in two days

first_imgNews April 30, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Outrage about death of two journalists in two days Reporters Without Borders today voiced its outrage at the murders of two journalists in different parts of Colombia in the past 48 hours and urged the authorities to do everything possible to identify and punish those responsible. Radio presenter Jaime Rengifo Jr. was killed yesterday in Maicao in the northeastern department of Guajira. TV producer and presenter Guillermo Bravo Vega was killed Monday in Neiva in the department of Huila, southwest of the capital.”The information available so far suggests that both murders were linked to the victims’ work as journalists,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said in a letter to public prosecutor Luis Camilo Osorio. “It is high time Colombia broke the vicious circle of impunity – letting these murders go unpunished would mean accepting they will be repeated,” he said.Ménard noted that four journalists have been killed since the start of the year and that about 50 have been killed in the past 10 years, which makes Colombia the most dangerous country in the western hemisphere for journalists.Many of these deaths have been prompted by the victims’ coverage of the decades-old civil war. Both left-wing guerrillas and their right-wing paramilitary foes view journalists as “military targets” if they suspect them of supporting the rival camp. Journalists are also killed because of their reporting on drug-trafficking and government corruption.Carlos Castaño of the paramilitary United Self-Defence Forces of Colombia (AUC), Manuel Marulanda of the Marxist FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) and Nicolas Rodríguez Bautista of the Guevarist ELN (National Liberation Army) are on the Reporters Without Borders worldwide list of predators of press freedom because of the repeated press freedom violations by the armed groups they lead.Jaime Rengifo Jr – “the only journalist who spoke out fearlessly”Rengifo, who presented a programme called “Journalists in action” on Radio Olímpica, was shot dead at dawn yesterday at the entrance to the hotel where he lived in Maicao (Guajira department) by two men who got away on a motorcycle. No group has claimed responsibility for the killing and Rengifo had not received any direct threats, but the words “Death to Jaime Rengifo” was painted on the facade of the town hall at the start of this month.Rengifo’s radio programme relayed listeners’ criticisms of public companies, local authorities, the army and the police. He had started up a fortnightly publication in February, called El Guajiro, which was distributed in Maracaibo and Bogotá as well as locally. “He was the only journalist who spoke out fearlessly about everything,” said a fellow staff member at Radio Olímpica. He had recently drawn attention to the violence and corruption caused by local criminal gangs and paramilitary groups. Late last year, he took part in a local campaign to get the power company Electrocaribe to lower its charges. He had worked in the area for 20 years.Guillermo Bravo Vega – a “left-wing” journalistThe producer and presenter of the programme “Facts and Figures” on the local TV station Altavisión, Bravo was gunned down outside his home in Neiva (Huila department) by four men on two motorcycles. Hit four times, he died while being taken to hospital. An investigation has been launched, but police have said they do not know what motivated the killing.Family members and colleagues said Bravo had received “constant death threats.” A man who introduced himself as a member of the AUC paramilitaries came to his home in February and warned him that he would be killed if he did not leave the area. Bravo reported this threat to the authorities.A work colleague said it was clear from the tone of “Facts and Figures,” which analysed political and economic issues, that Bravo was a “left-wing” journalist even if he tried to give it a broad appeal. His family did not rule out the possibility that the murder was linked to his coverage in 2000 of the privatisation of a regional state-owned company, Licorería del Huila, in which he had denounced irregularities it its sale to Licorsa.Of late, Bravo had also contributed to the Neiva-based weekly Tribuna del Sur and had presented cultural programmes for the local public radio station La Emisora Cultural. He received the Simón Bolívar award for journalism in the 1970s when he edited the economic weekly La República. He was a municipal government candidate in Neiva in 2000. In the 1980s, he was a representative of the small left-wing opposition party ANAPO in the Huila departmental assembly.

The Club performed earlier at Banks and Pike County elementary schools.However, their dances were as high energy at the close of the school day as they were at the beginning.“These dancers practice and practice,” said Larry Flurnoy, who called the performance. “They work really hard. The dances take a lot of energy so they have to be able to dance and dance some more. The dancers love what they do. They are a select few.” Powwow club visits local schools MondayThe tom-tom-tom of the drums of America’s Native Indians took on new meaning for the students as Goshen Elementary School Monday. Published 5:54 pm Monday, November 18, 2013 Email the authorcenter_img Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By Jaine Treadwell “The traditional dancer brings back the story to the village of what happened on the battleground or the hunt,” Flurnoy said. “The jingle dance is done to retell the long ago story of a Native American who was very sick. His daughter was told that, if she could make a dress that sounded like rain, her father would get well. She made a dress of with 365 jingles that sounded like rain. The jingles represent the 365 days of the year and remind of her father’s return to good health.”The Poarch Creek Indian Powwow Club has a member of royalty among them. Madison McGhee is the junior princess and she performed a cloth dance for the students.The dancers ended their performance with a fancy dance in which the dancers are dressed in the fanciest of fancy costumes and perform a fast and furious dance.Flurnoy said the Club members elected to design and make their own costumes and commented on the originality and uniqueness of their work.“The dancers learn their dances from older dancers,” he said. “It is an honor to be asked to teach a dance and it is an honor to teach.”Pam Franklin, Pike County instructional support specialist, expressed appreciation to the members of the Poarch Creek Indian Powwow Club for their performance.“This was an opportunity for our students to be exposed to the songs and dances of our Native Americans and to be exposed to the Native American culture,” she said. “They are now more aware of our Native American culture and it’s more real to them. This performance was unique and very special.” Print Article Flurnoy said the dancers must maintain a high grade point average and have the desire and dedication to carrying on the dance traditions of the Poarch Creek Indians.Eight members of the Poarch Creek Indian Powwow Club performed different categories of dances, including the grass dance, the chicken dance, a traditional dance, the jingle dance, the cloth dance and the fancy dance.“The grass dance is the first dance the Native Americans do,” Flurnoy said. “It is done to beat down the grass and form a circle for the other dances.”The chicken dance mimics the prairie chicken and is a fun, high-energy dance that is a favorite among the young men.
