What Change? US Refuses to Participate in World Conference Against Discrimination

David Gespass, Truthout: "For those of us who were in Durban, South Africa, in 2001 for the World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance, the decision of the United States to leave before the conclusion was disheartening, but not surprising... There were two issues in particular the US did not want on the agenda. One was that of reparations for the slave trade and the other was the plight of the Palestinian people. While the US withdrawal was predicated on the latter, it remains an open question how much of a role each played in its decision."

Police Killing Shakes Louisiana Town

Michael Kunzelman and Mary Foster, The Associated Press: "For 73 years before his killing by a white police officer, Bernard Monroe led a life in this northern Louisiana town as peaceful as they come - five kids with his wife of five decades, all raised in the same house, supported by the same job. The black man's shooting death is attracting far more attention than he ever did, raising racial tensions between the black community and Homer's police department."
