Old School

Collection of images from the Syrian War where the Mosin Nagant 91/30 is still seeing some use with the rebel fighters. Since it shares ammunition with the SVD Dragunov, PSL and PKM, the 91/30 has no ammo supply problems unlike other rifles seen over there. (GRH)

In order to move beyond the problematic pitfalls implicit within the STPP [School to Prison Pipeline] argumentation, it is vital to change the manner in which public education is framed. It is critical to acknowledge that the first call for public education in the United States was during Reconstruction. DuBois (1998) elucidates in Black Reconstruction in America that in addition to the formation of schools, the call for public education was a strategic organizing effort on the part of Blacks to redistribute land, money, and time to the masses of poor Black and whites who were formerly under the thumb of the rigid plantation economy. To the contrary, the plantation owners fought vigorously not only to prevent the formation of public education but also to gain economic redress for their losses during the Civil War. A reformist compromise between the southern plantation economy and the industrial North resulted in the industrial takeover of education. Watkins (2001) provides an in-depth analysis of how northern industrial philanthropy, led by the likes of oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller and the seemingly beneficent Phelps Stokes Fund, muted the educational demands of Blacks in order to establish a new economic order. This history suggests that every facet of education, ranging from curriculum development to pedagogical philosophy to discipline policy, is connected to the struggle between a Black radical democratic, social vision of the educative process and an education model that reproduces the gross consumptive and oppressive desires imbedded within a system of ‘racial capitalism’ (Robinson, 2000).

"Here are fifty white guys. Here are fifty black guys. Here’s how many white guys can expect to go to prison in their lifetime. The chances amount to one in seventeen. Now here’s how many black guys can expect the same thing. The chances are one out of three. Why? Lots of reasons. It’s complicated, but one thing is clear: There’s racial bias at every level of the criminal justice system."
