“'I was very involved, and I’m not talking about just helping with homework or weekly meetings with their teachers. I mean sending emails to their teachers every single day,' she says. Sykes saw firsthand what happened to the African-American children in her school district who didn’t have this kind of parental involvement. 'They were ignored.' Sykes says that she has completely lost faith in the public school system’s ability to serve African-American children like her own."

"The problem is more entrenched in metropolitan Phoenix, where 63.7 percent of the residents living in neighborhoods adjacent to hazardous-waste facilities are of color, according to the new report commissioned by the United Church of Christ. Nationally, the figure is 56 percent.
"Black and Latino residents are more likely than Anglos to live next to facilities storing the most dangerous types of wastes. They are exposed in disproportionate numbers to the potential health and safety risks of living next to volatile chemicals."

The 'Transatlantic Economic Integration' between the U.S. and the European Union was signed April 30 at the White House by Bush, German Chancellor Angela Merkel – the current president of the European Council – and European Commission President José Manuel Barroso.
The document acknowledges 'the transatlantic economy remains at the forefront of globalization' arguing that the U.S. and the European Union 'seek to strengthen transatlantic economic integration.'

"'They are funded by the record companies,' says activist Al Sharpton, who vowed to hold record companies accountable for degrading lyrics after he led protests that got talk show host Don Imus fired.

"Highly offensive R-rated films like BORAT and JACKASS: NUMBER 2 had low budgets and large returns this year, but they are exceptions. The big story on R-rated movies is that while production remains nearly the same, market share continues to drop. The more good quality G, PG and PG-13 product being offered, the more the R-rated market suffers. Foreign car makers gained American market share because their cars were seen as better quality. The key to achieving high market share in the motion picture industry is to make quality entertainment that appeals to a broad audience. The real magic happens when people are entertained enough to pay more than once to see the same movie.
"R ratings cut the broadness of the audience even if the quality of the movie is excellent. Many appeal only to small audience segments. This is particularly true of independent art house movies aimed at homosexuals, extreme liberals and other small groups. Many of these movies are made by activists for activists with little regard for profit."

"'Now, out of nine Wu-Tang members, seven are felons... We were the problem of our communities, but we never bragged about it. We kept moving on about life,' he continued. "But right now, these hip-hoppers are stuck on one thing. They stuck on sex and violence and drugs and partying. Life is way more than that. Especially the day after the party ends. When you get the f**k up the next day, what you gonna do?"
