Hellraisers Journal: UMW National Secretary Wilson, "The Negro is always to be given a fair show."

Indianapolis, Indiana - U. M. W. Secretary Wilson speaks out against discrimination.

The Huntington Herald of Indiana printed this article yesterday, reproduced here in full:


Protest of Negroes, Members of the U. M. W.,
That White Miners are Drawing the Color Line.

Indianapolis, Oct. 14-Information has come to the national officers of the United Mine Workers of dissatisfaction among negro miners in the southern part of Indian, who allege that there has been discrimination against them. Three negroes at Linton have begun a movement to seek redress against the alleged disfavor in which they are held, and have presented their case to the officials of their organization at Terre Haute.

Negro Has a Right to a Fair Show

Secretary Wilson, of the United Mine Workers, said in speaking of it: "I do not know what the outcome of their meeting will be, but I know that it is not the purpose of the United Mine Workers to discriminate against the labor of any man in the organization. Our organization expressly prohibits discrimination against any on account of race, color or creed, and the negro is always to be given a fair show with the white man."

African American Coal Miners

These are fine words from the National Secretary of the miners' union, William B. Wilson, and we are sure that he means them sincerely. We will also point out that the United Mine Workers of America is a leader among unions in attempting to end discrimination across the color line. But we would hope that these words will lead to positive and long lasting action to end the shameful practice of white miners drawing the color line against their brothers within this great union. Real and lasting Solidarity is what is needed if the United Mine Workers expects to have the strength needed to take on the powerful coal companies.

Boston: The Unraveling and a Plea for the Healing of Our Society

I find it hard to write about anything after this happened. Boston is a great city I had the pleasure to visit in a field trip in 2006 while I was in school. There was so much life in that city and there still is despite this attack. It's still affected me even though I don't live there because of that fond memory. Senseless acts of violence like this shouldn't happen. It's hard enough just to get by.

I feel a sense of panic and uneasiness as if the fabric of society is breaking and it is; all the record inequality fueling human breakdown; the wars; the bombing of other countries fueling human breakdown. Human breakdown is caused by those that show indifference to their state of being thus breaking down barriers of sanity that keeps one non violent and functioning. Nothing excuses these actions whatsoever and I don't care about the reasoning of whoever did this; it’s despicable and abhorrent act of violence that killed a child and 2 other human beings and more than 170 were injured many permanently disabled.

That being said, we can try to change the society that breeds these types of people and actions instead of enabling the void. That's what protects people from terrorism and acts of violence in the aggregate. It may have been impossible to stop this incident, and not all can be prevented. However, given the overall breakdown of society and the marginal extremes that causes within the minds of the population, I have to think every one of our problems contributed to it. Every few months there is either a shooting or something like this. That's why I talk of the unraveling of society.

Time for the latest chapter on how Western humanitarianism is being used to rape the world.

Mali is the latest subject of Western imperial ogling, and all of Obama's international neoliberal fraternity brothers are taking their turn explaining why Mali is just asking for some forcible intervention.

Compliments of the CIA and Homeland Security: By Next Year, Privacy Will Be History

Thanks to the Central Intelligence Agency and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, as early as 2013, privacy as we used to know it will be history.
