Racialized Protest and the State

Author: Hank Johnston

View: 907

Bringing together leading scholars of social movements and protest, this volume offers an up-to-date overview of several of the key ethnic and racial movements in the contemporary United States. The organizations, strategies, and challenges of the Black Lives movement, mainstream Black organizations, the Mexican-American Dreamer groups, immigrant-rights mobilizations, Arab-American resistance, and White nationalism are all examined by situating them in a rapidly evolving and—in many ways—increasingly unfavorable state context. With empirical studies linked by their dialogue with theories of social movement and protest, and, in particular, recent trends that emphasize the dynamic relations among social movement groups and organizations, Racialized Protest and the State also considers the multiciplicity of state players and the roles of hostile civic actors who oppose the movements' challenges. A cutting-edge analysis of an increasingly important dimension of contentious politics in complex and diverse Western societies, this book will appeal to scholars of sociology and politics with interests in social movements, nonviolent resistance, protest campaigns, and ethnic mobilization.

In a small town Mississippi town located 30 minutes from Laurel, things happen you would never believe. This small place is a small quiet mom and pop town. Barnard lived there with his mother and father. His father spent over half of Barnards life in and out of prison. This made his mother have to work extra hard to raise his brother and him. Times were hard and having to foot the bills and bring home the groceries were even harder. But thank God, for his fathers mother, Big Moma, and his aunt, Nee Nee, they took up his fathers slack. Being the only boy they had spoiled his father and this made him sorry and irresponsible. Coming from a home that was built on selling liquor and gambling Barnards father thought he did not have to work and he began to get by on scheming and gambling. He went from petty hustling to being involved in upscale crimes and this landed him in and out of prison . . . Leaving a wife and two kids behind. Barnard hated how his brother and mother would sit and cry every time his father went to jail. He always promised he would never end up like his father (even though he looked just like him.)

The poetry that I write comes from the heart and it also uplifts me as a person. I chose the title "Can You Relate?" because there are a lot of people who feel some of the emotions, situations and outlooks on some of the subjects that I expressed throughout the book. I always thought that it was only me going through certain things in my life but came to realize I wasn't alone. So I hope when one reads the poetry they can find a sense of relief in knowing that they are not crazy and they are not alone.
