Autism Amongst African-American Boys.

Ferguson Riot 
According to August 18th’s, 2014 Marketwired article, Dr. Brian Hooker a PhD in biochemical engineering working for the Focus Autism Foundation, uncovered data manipulation by the CDC concerning the incident rate of autism amongst African-American boys. His discover of this manipulation didn’t occur until after successfully filling a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for original data on the DE Stefano et al MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) and autism study. He was assisted in making this discover by an unknown whistleblower at the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention). Dr. Hooker's study was published August 8th in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Translational Neurodegeneration. This study showed that African-American boys receiving their first MMR vaccine before 36 months of age are 3.4 times more likely to develop autism vs. after 36 months.

This discovery points out exactly why some individuals believe that various forms of race based pseudo sciences was necessary in proving that people of color especially; blacks were socially and intellectually inferior to all other groups. As stated by talk show host Dr. Stanley Monteith "Reality is scoffed at; illusion is king." Perhaps this is why some of us believe that once you can establish questionable race based pseudo sciences as a reality by creating a supporting reality brought about through actual science, it then becomes possible to utilize fraudulent pseudo sciences to support hostile socio-economic and political agendas that benefit those who wish to establish them. If you could prove that exposure to children of color are the reason for a white child's failing test scores, anti-social behavior, and declining physical well-being why would you question that there could be any other reason for such things befalling a white child. Magicians' refer to this maneuver as misdirection; a tactic often utilized by racist politicians and other policy creators.
   

Unfortunately, most whites are only beginning to discover the true cost of white privilege; especially when it was never intended for them, but their ruling class superiors who consider themselves as genetically superior to average whites -- just as average whites consider themselves genetically superior to people of color. According to Luke Visconti’s Ask the White Guy column "Then Sen. Obama was the third black senator since reconstruction (which ended in approximately 1877). There have been 1,148 senators sworn in since 1877. African Americans have been fairly consistent at 13 percent of our population. If whites felt that blacks were intellectually equal, they certainly wouldn't have enslaved African Americans, and the Senate would have been far more than 0.26 percent black." The problem with whites continuing to believe in such race based propaganda is that it leaves them vulnerable further political and socio-economic manipulation by those seeking to undermine not only people of color, but those whites that they consider not white enough!

Yishay Garbasz identity, agency, human rights, and the construction of gender

"Right or wrong -- you must step out of the way and allow the picture to enter the camera," a trans lesbian woman of British-Israeli descent; Garbasz is a Berlin-based visual artist born in the 1970's. Garbasz studied photography at Bard College in New York. Garbasz's work delves deeply into sociopolitical issues of: identity, agency, human rights, and the construction of gender. Her latest show a solo exhibition "Severed Connection: Do what I say or they will kill you" appeared at the Ronald Feldman Gallery where it ran from May 9 - June 13 in NYC, which chronicles three sites of hot conflict and resounding trauma produced by fear of the other.

In an interview with Tobaron Waxman on March 3, 2013 Yishay was quoted as saying "I’m an artist; not a trans-artist, or a Jewish artist, just an artist. A lot of people struggle with gender as something that shapes their lives. There’s a lot more to life than gender. If not for the socially enforced constraints…

The Intersection of Self and Humanity: LGBTQ Political Identity

The SelfAre opinions of the self or the self of "others" is derived from our interpersonal relationships: the family home, the home of friends and relatives; society due to its ability to determine the child's path of success and development outside their family home, or the influence of relatives based upon its readiness to provide the child with: protection, resources, cooperation, belonging, and interactions . The Lev Vygotskys' theory of sociocultural, cognitive and social learning theories establish the importance of both parents and society in individual development. Two of these principles bare a direct relationship to the formation of identity 1 ( development cannot be separated from its social context, 2 ( language plays a central role in development. These two principles of Vygotskys serves to undermine the use of the Bell Curve to prove  white male or Asian intellectual superiority over women, and other people of color particularly black Americans.

Gifted, Colored, And Droped Out

Despite assertions of education as a means of social mobility, many students of color experience a different reality. According to Saras Chung writer for NPO, Nonprofit Quarterly (et al March, 2012); in March of this year, America’s Promise Alliance released a study stating that through 2001 to 2009 the national graduation rate increased from 72 % to 75.5 %. Collectively including both whites and minorities more than one million U.S. students drop out per year.  Thus, over one million students within the U.S. do not experience education as a means of social mobility.
What may be so striking is that despite the emphasis upon minority dropout rates, we are consistently feed statistics that cause minorities to be overrepresented among dropout as opposed to actual numbers.  This lack in pinpointing actual numbers in terms of minority dropout rates may cause a perpetuation of “Deficit Thinking” amongst educators that are not part of minority or low income groups. Deficit thinking is dist…
