2014: Hope or Hypocrisy?

“Hypocrisy is a mask that vice uses to disguise itself.” Jeffrey Stout, Professor of Religion, Princeton University

It’s a New Year yet some things remain the same:

Millions will lose unemployment benefits while

A bogus political argument goes on regarding raising the minimum wage a few dollars

William Bratton is the new (old) police commissioner of New York City though he expanded Stop & Frisk during his first stint there

New York, the self-proclaimed progressive state, is still searching for its first African-American Senator

The parents of Trayvon Martin are still seeking criminal justice for the murder of their son

While the punk that pulled the trigger lives out his very warped life under a NRA media friendly microscope

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) oversees the world’s largest slave plantation disguised under the best interest for an amateur Student/Athlete

Mass incarceration and the American prison industry operates the second largest slave plantation disguised under privatization

Government and state workers are experiencing layoffs by the thousands

Multinational corporations are expanding manufacturing in foreign countries

Investing billions of dollars in stock buybacks

Allowing an artificial boost in the company net worth

While paying little to nothing in corporate income taxes

Distributing ridiculous amounts in executive pay and CEO compensation

And Blacks are no closer to income, education or health equality than in 1970…

HAPPY NEW YEAR
