Supporters Of Mumia Abu-Jamal Protest His Medical Treatment In State Prison

Supporters Of Mumia Abu-Jamal Protest His Medical Treatment In State Prison

 File photo of Mumia Abu-Jamal (credit: CBS) 

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Supporters of convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal marched and rallied around Center City Friday afternoon, on the 35th anniversary of the death of Philadelphia Officer Daniel Faulkner.

The group gathered at 15th and JFK Boulevard demanding clean water, medical treatment, and freedom for Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Demonstrator Gil Obler said they were rallying for various important issues.

“We’re also talking about the hepatitis C crisis, what’s going on now, there’s a cure Harvoni, which you can get in India and Egypt for under ten dollars, but here in the United States, it’s a thousand dollars a pill.”

SEPTA Santa Gives Bikes To Children In Need

SEPTA Santa Gives Bikes To Children In Need
 
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A project put into gear five years ago has turned into a full-out holiday giveaway for local kids. A SEPTA Santa spent Wednesday morning in South Philadelphia putting smiles on kids faces.

Chris Guinan is a get it done type of guy.

“I really don’t think what I am doing is extraordinary to be honest with you,” he humbly says.

That was probably true when the SEPTA manager decided to refurbish five used bikes five years ago. But when friends, family and co-workers threw in their bicycles, too, the effort shifted.

Chief: Female Delaware Firefighter Who Died From Arson Fire Was Planning To Retire

WILMINGTON, Del. (CBS) — Wilmington Fire Chief Anthony Goode says Ardythe Hope, who died months after a fire killed two other firefighters, was planning to retire in January to become a nurse.

Ardythe Hope, a single mother of three, died on Thursday after spending 68 days in the hospital, Chief Goode says.

The Sept. 24 fire, that also claimed the lives of Capt. Christopher Leach and Lt. Jerry Fickes Jr., was intentionally set, authorities said.

Famously cold N. Dakota winter menaces pipeline protest camp

Famously cold N. Dakota winter menaces pipeline protest camp


AP Photo
In this Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2016 photo, Grandma Redfeather of the Sioux Native American tribe walks in the snow to get water at the Oceti Sakowin camp where people have gathered to protest the Dakota Access oil pipeline in Cannon Ball, N.D. "It's for my people to live and so that the next seven generations can live also," said Redfeather of why she came to the camp. "I think about my grandchildren and what it will be like for them."


CANNON BALL, N.D. (AP) -- So far, the hundreds of protesters fighting the Dakota Access pipeline have shrugged off the heavy snow, icy winds and frigid temperatures that have swirled around their large encampment on the North Dakota grasslands.

But if they defy next week's government deadline to abandon the camp, demonstrators know the real deep freeze lies ahead, when the full weight of the Great Plains winter descends on their community of nylon tents and teepees. Life-threatening wind chills and towering snow drifts could mean the greatest challenge is simple survival.

"I'm scared. I'm a California girl, you know?" said Loretta Reddog of Placerville, California, a protester who said she arrived several months ago with her two dogs and has yet to adjust to the harsher climate.

The government has ordered protesters to leave federal land by Monday, although it's not clear what, if anything, authorities will do to enforce that mandate. Demonstrators insist they will stay for as long as it takes to divert the $3.8 billion pipeline, which the Standing Rock Sioux tribe believes threatens sacred sites and a river that provides drinking water for millions of people.

The pipeline is largely complete except for a short segment that is planned to pass beneath a Missouri River reservoir. The company doing the building says it is unwilling to reroute the project.

For several months, the government permitted the gathering, allowing its population to swell. 

The Seven Council Fires camp began growing in August as it took in the overflow crowd from smaller protest sites nearby. 

It now covers a half square mile, with living quarters that include old school buses, fancy motorhomes and domelike yurts. Hale bales are piled around some teepees to keep out the wind. There's even a crude corral for horses.

The number of inhabitants has ranged from several hundred to several thousand. It has been called the largest gathering of Native American tribes in a century.

Increasingly, more permanent wooden structures are being erected, even though the Army Corps of Engineers considers them illegal on government property. The Standing Rock Sioux insist the land still belongs to their tribe under a nearly 150-year-old treaty.

Nate Bison, a member of South Dakota's Cheyenne River Sioux, came to the camp after quitting his job in Las Vegas a week ago. He said he intends to stay indefinitely, a prospect that may cause him to lose his house in Nevada.
 
"But since I've lived in these conditions before, to me it's not all that bad," he said.

Camp morale is high, he added, despite the onset of winter.

"Everybody I've talked to, you hear laughter and people just having a good time, enjoying the camaraderie and the support from each other," Bison said. "And the love. People are taking the shirts off their own backs for other people. No one is left out that I've seen."

On Thursday, the camp near the confluence of the Missouri and Cannonball rivers was shrouded in snow, much of it compacted by foot and vehicle traffic. Temperatures hovered in the 20s. Next week's forecast calls for single digits and subzero wind chills.

Camp dwellers are getting ready for the hardships of a long stay. Mountains of donated food and water are being stockpiled, as is firewood, much of which has come from outside of North Dakota, the least-forested state in the nation. 

A collection of Army surplus tents with heating stoves serve as kitchen, dining hall, medical clinic and a camp-run school. Many of the smaller tents have become tattered by the wind.

Thane Maxwell, a 32-year-old Minneapolis native who has been living at the camp since July, said North Dakota's bitter cold will not deter protesters committed to fighting the pipeline, or "black snake" as they call it.

Tribes from the Great Plains states are adept at surviving brutal winters, he said. Others from warmer climes are being taught how to endure the frostbite-inducing temperatures that are sure to come.

"A lot of these people have been living in this climate for hundreds of years," said Maxwell a member of Minnesota-based Honor the Earth Foundation. "It's a skill set that can be learned. The danger is escalating from law enforcement, not the weather."

Reddog said she has confidence in the camp community. "Everybody's really stepping up and taking care of each other," she said.

Maxwell put out a call on social media for more donations, seeking four-wheel drive trucks and foul-weather clothing. He also asked for gas masks and protective baseball and hockey gear to shield protesters from any future skirmishes with police.

More than 525 people from across the country have been arrested since August. In a recent clash between police and protesters near the path of the pipeline, officers used tear gas, rubber bullets and large water hoses in sub-freezing temperatures. Organizers said at least 17 protesters were taken to the hospital, some for hypothermia and one for an arm injury. One officer was hurt.

North Dakota has often conjured images of a wind-swept, treeless wasteland. The perception was so great that it led to a short-lived proposal to change the state's name by dropping "North" and leaving just "Dakota," to dispel the image of inhospitable winter weather.

Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier, who is heading the law enforcement effort around the pipeline, said he hopes the harsh conditions force people to leave the encampment, something the state and federal governments have so far been unable to do.

In addition to the federal order, North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple issued a "mandatory evacuation" for the camp "to safeguard against harsh winter conditions." But he said Wednesday that the state has no intention of blocking food and supplies from coming into the camp.

Doing so would be a "huge mistake from a humanitarian viewpoint," the Republican said.

The federal deadline probably will not have any immediate effect on the camp either. Soon after it was set, the Army Corps of Engineers explained that the agency had no plans to forcibly remove anyone, although violators could be charged with trespassing.

Back at the camp, about 75 people lined up Thursday to draw propane for heating and cooking from a fuel truck. The driver, Rodney Grant, said it was his seventh trip in a week. The propane was free to campers. 

Grant said he did not know who was paying for it.

Dani Jo McKing, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux, was among those in line. She and her husband have been sharing cold-weather tips with people who are not from North Dakota. She said people with out-of-state license plates, including California and Nevada, have been seen driving away from the camp. 

The cruel winter is bound to induce others to head home, she said.

The cold weather has never bothered her.

"This is where I live. I'll stay until the end. This is God's country," she said.

Summer Moore arrived last week from Paintsville, Kentucky, and quickly learned the power of the whipping North Dakota wind. 

When a snowstorm rolled in Monday, it ripped her tent to shreds.

"It wasn't that cold, but the wind was so bad it knocked me down three times," Moore said.

She hitched a ride to the casino on the Standing Rock reservation and rode out the storm in a hotel room.

A carpenter named Joel Maurer came from California last month. He's been building small shed-like bunkhouses that will sleep seven people each with room for a stove.

"I know things are going to get real here real quick," he said.

Parents, Police Plea For Hit-Run Driver To Turn Themselves In, $25K Reward

Jayanna Powell was killed on November 18 while she was walking home in the Overbrook section of the city.

Commissioner Ross said, “Looking at this family and the grief they are going through, help bring them some sense of closure because they have lost their little one.”

Police, speaking directly to the driver, said, “Your chance is now to come forward. I promise a fair investigation, but you have to come forward. The longer you stay away, the more it looks like you’re trying to hide something.”

Brazilian soccer team's plane crashes in Colombia; 71 dead

Brazilian soccer team's plane crashes in Colombia; 71 dead

Rescue workers search at the wreckage site of a chartered airplane that crashed outside Medellin, Colombia, Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2016. The plane was carrying the Brazilian first division soccer club Chapecoense team that was on it's way for a Copa Sudamericana final match against Colombia's Atletico Nacional.
  
LA UNION, Colombia (AP) -- Colombian authorities searched for answers Tuesday into the crash of a chartered airliner that slammed into the Andes mountains while transporting a Brazilian soccer team whose Cinderella story had won it a spot in the finals of one of South America's most prestigious regional tournaments. All but six of the 77 people on board were killed.

The British Aerospace 146 short-haul plane declared an emergency and lost radar contact just before 10 p.m. Monday (0300 GMT Tuesday), according to Colombia's aviation agency. It said the plane's black boxes had been recovered and were being analyzed.

The aircraft, which departed from Santa Cruz, Bolivia, was carrying the Chapecoense soccer team from southern Brazil for Wednesday's first leg of the two-game Copa Sudamericana final against Atletico Nacional of Medellin. Twenty-one Brazilian journalists were also on board the flight.

Colombian officials initially said the plane suffered an electrical failure but there was also heavy rainfall at the time of the crash. Authorities also said they were not ruling out the possibility, relayed to rescuers by a surviving flight attendant, that the plane ran out of fuel minutes before its scheduled landing at Jose Maria Cordova airport outside Medellin.

Whatever the cause, the emotional pain of Colombia's deadliest air tragedy in two decades was felt across the soccer world.

Expressions of grief poured in as South America's federation canceled all scheduled matches in a show of solidarity, Real Madrid's squad interrupted its training for a minute of silence and Argentine legend Diego Maradona sent his condolences to the victims' families over Facebook.

Brazil's top teams offered to loan the small club players next season so they can rebuild following the sudden end to a fairy tale season that saw Chapecoense reach the tournament final just two years after making it into the first division for the first time since the 1970s. "It is the minimum gesture of solidarity that is within our reach," the teams said in a statement.

Sportsmanship also prevailed, with Atletico Nacional asking that the championship title be given to its rival, whose upstart run had electrified soccer-crazed Brazil.

Rescuers working through the night were initially heartened after pulling three people alive from the wreckage. But as the hours passed, heavy fog and stormy weather grounded helicopters and slowed efforts to reach the crash site.

At daybreak, dozens of bodies scattered across a muddy mountainside were collected into white bags. They were then loaded onto several Black Hawk helicopters that had to perform a tricky maneuver to land on the crest of the Andes mountains. The plane's fuselage appeared to have broken into two, with the nose facing downward into a steep valley.

Officials initially reported 81 people were on board the flight, but later revised that to 77, saying four people on the flight manifest did not get on the plane.

Images broadcast on local television showed three of the six survivors on stretchers and connected to IVs arriving at a hospital in ambulances. Chapecoense defender Alan Ruschel was in the most serious condition, and was later transported to another facility to undergo surgery for a spinal fracture. Teammates Helio Zampier and Jakson Follmann also suffered multiple trauma injuries, with doctors having to amputate the goalkeeper Follmann's right leg.

A journalist traveling with the team was recovering from surgery and two Bolivian crew members were in stable condition, hospital officials said.

The aircraft is owned by LaMia, a charter company that started off in Venezuela but later relocated to Bolivia, where it was certified to operate last January. Despite such apparently limited experience the airline has a close relationship with several premier South American squads.

Earlier this month, the plane involved in Monday's crash transported Barcelona forward Lionel Messi and the Argentina national team from Brazil following a World Cup qualifier match. The airliner also appears to have transported the national squads of Brazil, Bolivia and Venezuela over the last three months, according to a log of recent activity provided by Flightradar24.com.

Before being taken offline, LaMia's website said it operated three 146 Avro short-haul jets made by British Aerospace, with a maximum range of around 2,965 kilometers (1,600 nautical miles) - about the same as the distance between Santa Cruz and Medellin..

Hans Weber, a longtime adviser to U.S. aviation authorities, said the aircraft's range deserves careful investigation. He noted that the air distance between cities is usually measured by the shortest route but planes rarely fly in a straight line - pilots may steer around turbulence or change course for other reasons.
Given the model of the plane and that it was flying close to capacity, "I would be concerned that the pilots may have been cutting it too close," Weber said.

Bolivia's civil aviation agency said the aircraft picked up the Brazilian team in Santa Cruz, where the players had arrived on a commercial flight from Sao Paulo. Spokesman Cesar Torrico said the plane underwent an inspection before departing for Colombia and reported no problems.

"We can't rule out anything. The investigation is ongoing and we're going to await the results," said Gustavo Vargas, a retired Bolivian air force general who is president of the airline.

Colombian authorities said they hope to interview the Bolivian flight attendant who relayed the fuel concerns on Wednesday.

Moments before the flight departed, the team's coaching staff gave an interview to a Bolivian television station in which they praised the airline, saying it brought them good fortune when it flew them to Colombia last month for the championship's quarterfinals, which they won.

"Now we're going to do this new trip and we hope they bring us good luck like they did the first time," athletic director Mauro Stumpf told the Gigavision TV network.

The team, from the small Brazilian agro-industrial city of Chapeco, was in the midst of a breakout season. It advanced last week to the Copa Sudamericana finals after defeating some of the region's top teams, including Argentina's San Lorenzo and Independiente, as well as Colombia's Junior.

The team is so modest that tournament organizers ruled that its 22,000-seat arena was too small to host the final match, which was moved to a stadium 300 miles (480 kilometers) to the north, in the city of Curitiba.

The team won over fans across Brazil with its spectacular run to the finals, with some even taking up a campaign online to move the final match to Rio de Janeiro's iconic Maracana stadium, where the 2014 World Cup finals were played.

The tragedy of so many young and talented players' lives and dreams cut short brought an outpouring of support far beyond Brazil's borders. Atletico Nacional said in a statement it was offering its title to the team, saying the accident "leaves an indelible mark on the history of Latin American and world soccer."

Closer to home, fans mourned the terrible loss.

"This morning I said goodbye to them and they told me they were going after the dream, turning that dream into reality," Chapecoense board member Plinio De Nes told Brazil's TV Globo. "The dream was over early this morning."

Melania Trump, President-Elect First Lady of the United States of America, Professional Model


I think that I have figured out how to make a comment. I hope that my comment drops. I continue to see hate comments and images about Melania Trump... I asked the question many many times, is this a woman that is using her facebook page to send attacks and hate against another woman??? Melania Trump is a wife for over 10 years.... and Melania Trump is a mother, also... How can any woman continue to say that she feels sorry for Melania Trump after a marriage has taken place and child custody is not being battled in family court? There are so many many people both White Americans and Black Americans that are racist... In my view the 2016 United States presidential election has exposed the hidden racist greatly to the boiling point that these racist Americans can't control themselves even when attacking innocent Americans- especially innocent Americans reaching the the point of becoming president-elect first lady of the United States of America.... By the way, the accurate history books of president first ladies of the United States of America is... president-elect first lady of the United States of America, Michelle Obama, Lawyer, is the first Black American Woman married to the president of the U.S... In 2016, president-elect first lady of the United States of America, Melania Trump, Professional Model, is the second Black American Woman married to the president of the U.S.... I take offense at any woman launching no good reason attacks against another woman... It has been proven that Melania Trump is a Black woman, therefore, since I am a Black man, I take even more offense at any woman launching no good reason attacks against Melania Trump... To say that Melania Trump chased after Trump so that Trump could become her sugar daddy is not only blind but a racist comment...Why do racist people demand that others listen to their comments? Most racist are blind and therefore refuse to see how lost they are-choosing to enjoy being lost.

Unsolved Mysteries Of Colombian Amazon Indigenous Peoples And American Landscape To Canadian Landscape Indigenous Nations And European Landscape Indigenous Peoples- Black Indigenous Woman Beauty- First Lady of the U.S., Lawyer, Michelle Obama And President-Elect First Lady of the U.S., Model, Melania Trump (Biggest Surprise To All Americans Is That Both Ladies Are Black Women) Wait...You Didn't Know???


Race in America... Always Right Side Down.

Race in European Lands...Most Often Right Side Up.

The World Is Turning So Much....

President Obama married a Black woman.... do the research...

And President-Elect Trump married a Black woman also...do the research...

Racist White peoples and Racist Black peoples are attacking both of these exceptional women-Black American Women of Color...

"If anyone is against racism in America, that human being is always looked down upon... Always," says Van Stone.

If things were that simple, any beautiful person Michelle Obama, First Lady of the United States, Attorney... we could conquer against racism together right now.

Every girl and boy would be safer from racism the same way.

See Sleeping Beauty? Or is that Snow White?

Black American Indian, Indigenous Black American Woman Model... Simply beautiful.

Was Snow White actually Black Snow?
Snow  Black was reversed to Snow White... And yes, there was real Black Snow- not talking about the dirty snow.

In those days, everything Black was healthy and dark and lovely.

Nice dark skin, hair is groomed, all ready to go to work during the day and pose as a model when the need is there. Ready to save the day and fight the evil peoples in the world.

Most of the top fairy tale romance women characters or top super hero women characters in both the Western World and Eastern World are Black women.

Snow White is not a white female, Wonder Woman is not an Israeli female, and the list goes on and on... almost endless.

More importantly... Black women, Women of Color, living anywhere in the world should learn about their real prominence in non-fiction and fiction.

Snow White is a fiction folk tale borrowed from non-fiction life in Moorland- the lands of the Black Peoples known as the Moors.

She was Snow Black.

Moorland habitats (and Before the Moors) are most extensive in the neotropics and tropical Africa but also occur in northern and western Europe, Northern Australia, North America, Central Asia, South America, the Indian subcontinent, and all of the British Isles.

Snow White: Retold Fairy Tale Romance

Character (Originally written based on the life of a Moorish {Black} woman, followed by an Italian writer, followed by a French writer, followed by German writers)-a Dark Skin Black Woman.

The loss of Constantinople to the Ottoman Empire in 1453 was considered at the time to be a major blow to Christian Europe.

In writing their novel, authors that didn't like the Black race perhaps rewrote history to fit what they wanted it to be - which in a way makes it why present day opinion of Black women is full of alternate history.

Black women being princesses, Black men participation in knighthood emerged from the Moors as well as the Teutonic (Blacks in Germany) forests and was taught into civilization and positions by the then authority.

Black (the Maximum Darkness) meaning... Belonging to or denoting a human group  having from lightest-colored skin to darkest-colored skin... chiefly used of peoples of Eastern and Western World ethnic origin of someone's family...

of the color of grand endless space, reflecting nearly all rays of moonlight or a similar light.

"There is no such thing as... pure race, White or Black," says Van Stone.

They are Van Stone Black Women Models.

Spotlight on Prince Harry's new girlfriend, Meghan Markle

Spotlight on Prince Harry's new girlfriend, Meghan Markle
  
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Meghan Markle has been an actress for more than a dozen years, yet most people heard her name for the first time when Prince Harry announced that she's his girlfriend.

Harry confirmed he was dating the 35-year-old American when he released a statement Tuesday decrying the media's treatment of Markle, saying reporters have tried to break into her home and photographers have prevented her mother from reaching her front door.

The confirmation thrust Markle into a fishbowl of international media scrutiny, but it could also boost her career.

"The truth is she's not a household name," said E! News correspondent Marc Malkin. "She's going to be one because of Prince Harry."

Markle parlayed small parts on such TV series as "Fringe," ''Without a Trace" and "CSI: Miami" into a starring role on the USA Network drama "Suits ." She has played paralegal and aspiring lawyer Rachel Zane on the show, now in its sixth season, since 2011.

The actress appears to be as ambitious and hardworking as her character. Besides "Suits," she starred in the show's five-part web series about New York restaurants, "Power Lunch with Meghan Markle."

And a higher profile could bring more professional opportunities.

"Now that she's dating Prince Harry, I'm not saying that all of a sudden she's going to be working with every Oscar winner and legend in Hollywood, but a lot of doors open," Malkin said. "The benefit here is in 

Hollywood, it's about name recognition. You want people to think of you when they're casting something. 

You want people to think of you when they're throwing a big red carpet event. A lot of it is about exposure, and you can't ask for more exposure than dating Prince Harry."

That exposure could benefit Markle's various off-screen efforts as well, including the clothing collection she helped create for Canadian retailer Reitmans and her work with UN Women and the World Vision.

Markle continues to contribute to her lifestyle website, TheTig.com , which she established in 2014 as a place to "integrate social consciousness and subjects of higher value than, let's say ... selfies" with beauty and fitness advice. Her most recent post detailed how she balances her humanitarian work with her Hollywood career. She has also written for Elle magazine about being biracial and finding her identity beyond her ethnicity.

Markle credits her parents with showing her both the glitter of Hollywood and the joy of giving back. Born in Los Angeles, she accompanied her lighting-director dad to sitcom and soap-opera sets, while her therapist mom brought her along on exotic trips to places where poverty was the norm. Markle writes on her blog that her parents donated turkeys to homeless shelters at Thanksgiving and delivered meals to hospice patients.

"This is what I grew up seeing, so that is what I grew up being: a young adult with a social consciousness to do what I could, and to, at the very least, speak up when I knew something was wrong," she writes.

While it's unusual for a royal to issue an official comment on a personal relationship, as Harry did Tuesday, European royalty romancing American stars isn't new.

"Princess Grace is obviously the classic story," Malkin said. "It's this whole idea of royals dating Americans: how that's not supposed to happen and when it does happen, it's scandalous."

Or at least attention-getting. So how will Markle navigate work, life and romance under a royal microscope?

"She's going to have to have thick skin," Malkin said.

Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, said Harry's previous girlfriends struggled with media attention.

"With Chelsy Davy, she handled the spotlight for a bit, but then she decided it really wasn't for her, that life. 

She couldn't actually marry into that world," she said. "And Cressida Bonas, although she's an actress, she hated the attention, she hated the criticism. And it's not just the press, it's everyone, everyone having a go at you. Very difficult to deal with."

"Black Lives Matter": Forcible Removal And Arrest Of Black American Peoples-(The Dakota Protesters)- Even When There Are No Guns In Site... The privileges of protesting while white In America

In 2016 Our own Native American pipeline protesters, Black Peoples, were met by security with dogs and pepper spray.

Nothing has changed in America since the late 50's-70's. Dogs will be used by security and police in any USA state to go against peaceful Black protesters.

The USA seem to have no concern when women, children and men of Color are bitten by attack dogs...

The shocking acquittal of Ammon Bundy and six other defendants accused of staging an armed protest at a wildlife refuge in Oregon earlier this year places issues of race and the criminal justice system in sharp relief.

White men armed with shotguns remain good old boys in the American imagination, rugged cowboys bold enough to stand up to federal encroachment.

Meanwhile, critics scorn and demonize black protesters engaged in peaceful protests as anti-police troublemakers and law enforcement -- armed and ready for war -- round up Native Americans fighting to protect their indigenous land from environmental disaster.

The jury's acquittal of the Oregon defendants begs the question: What would the outcome have been if the armed protesters had been black, Latino or Native American?

We can also compare motivations.

The Dakota Access pipeline protests revolve around questions of indigenous land rights, environmental protection, and water and food security as Native American activists and environmentalists question the pipeline's impact on sacred burial grounds and the region's water supply.

In contrast, there was the 41-day armed standoff led by Bundy earlier this year.

These protesters argue that large swaths of land under federal control represent an overreach that fuels conspiratorial theories of government control over individual liberties, confiscation of guns and veritable marshal ... 

Recent and overlapping events offer some insight to an answer.

We can compare responses in Oregon and North Dakota.

The Bundy group's protest centered on land rights and disputes over federal authority in one corner of southeast Oregon and their acquittal coincided with well-publicized, unarmed protests in Cannon Ball, North Dakota, against construction of an oil pipeline near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.

Authorities there have responded by deploying law enforcement officers in riot gear who have wielded pepper spray, and fired bean bags and Taser guns. Recently police arrived in military Humvees to remove protesters, prompting human rights organizations to deploy observers to catalog alleged abuse of power by law enforcement against what has been a largely peaceful protest.

We can also compare motivations. The Dakota Access pipeline protests revolve around questions of indigenous land rights, environmental protection, and water and food security as Native American activists and environmentalists question the pipeline's impact on sacred burial grounds and the region's water supply.

In contrast, the 41-day armed standoff led by Bundy earlier this year is part of an anti-government fervor that has buoyed the presidential candidacy of Donald J. Trump.

These protesters argue that large swaths of land under federal control represent an overreach that fuels conspiratorial theories of government control over individual liberties, confiscation of guns and veritable marshal law.

We can contrast more than the responses to and motivations behind the two protests. The comparison also illustrates the stark racial realities of contemporary America, especially the relationship between people of color and the criminal justice system.

In an era where Black Lives Matter activists have perpetually highlighted inequality in the arrest, sentencing, use of deadly force against and overall treatment of black bodies by the justice system, the Bundy acquittal sends a clear message of whose lives matter in America -- and whose don't.

Armed whites illegally occupying federal land are still accorded citizenship rights, not labeled as terrorists, and negotiated with to achieve a peaceful resolution (although one armed protester was shot and killed by an FBI agent). Later, they are found not guilty of the very crimes they committed by a sympathetic jury in Oregon.

Unarmed BLM activists have been characterized as racial terrorists by a chorus of critics who include elected officials, law enforcement authorities and journalists.

The Standing Rock Sioux people who are organizing to defend indigenous land, cultural and water rights are met with military vehicles, riot-clad police and mass arrests.

White lives have always mattered more than any others in the United States. The genocide of Native Americans, the forced enslavement of blacks, and the system of Jim Crow all reinforced a system of privilege — and corresponding abuse against people of color — that became codified into law, public policy, institutions and our national culture.

During the 1960s, led by the civil rights and Black Power movements, a wide spectrum of activists organized for racial justice and the rights of indigenous people, including what was then called the American Indian Movement, which galvanized national attention on the heartbreaking history of native peoples in the past and present.

These activists protested against the violence perpetuated by institutions that treated citizens differently because of race. Their movements ameliorated, but did not defeat, institutional racism and inequality.

The Bundy acquittal illustrates the distance still to be traveled to achieve racial equality in both our criminal justice system and the larger society. The fact that white anti-government protesters railing against federal overreach scarcely realize their privileged treatment at the hands of law enforcement and the criminal justice system is one side of this story.

The images of Native American activists in North Dakota and black activists in Ferguson staring down military-style police presence while fighting for racial justice is the other.

"Black Lives Matter": Update On The Cowardly Murder Of Another Beautiful Black Woman In Pakistan, South Asia... 'Samia Shahid 'honour killing': Arrest warrants for mother and sister'



Samia Shahid, a beautiful Black woman, died while visiting relatives in Pandori in northern Punjab.

Arrest warrants have been issued for the mother and sister of a woman believed to have been the victim of a so-called "honour killing".

Samia Shahid, 28, from Bradford, died in Pakistan in July. Her father and first husband have been held in connection with her death.

Her mother, Imtiaz BiBi, and sister, Madiha Shahid have been declared proclaimed offenders in Pakistan.

A judge issued arrest warrants when they did not appear in court earlier.

Declaring the women proclaimed offenders means the police believe they were involved in Ms Shahid's death and wish to question them.

Both her father and first husband appeared at the court hearing in Jhelum, in the northern Punjab province, where the case was adjourned until 11 November.

Chaudhry Muhammad Shakeel is accused of her murder while her father Chaudhry Muhammad Shahid is being held as a suspected accessory.

Neither have been formally charged but their lawyers have previously argued there is no evidence against them.

The men's legal team asked the court to wait for the High Court in Lahore to decide on a petition lodged by Ms Shahid's second husband, Syed Mukhtar Kazim, for the case to be moved from Jhelum.

The High Court is expected to rule on that petition on 24 November but the judge in Jhelum said the court would continue to pursue the matter as no order to stay proceedings had been received.

Ms Shahid, a beautician, married Mr Kazim in Leeds in 2014 and the couple moved to Dubai.

Mr Kazim has claimed his wife, who died while visiting relatives in Pakistan, was killed because her family disapproved of their marriage.

Initially it was claimed she had died of a heart attack but a post-mortem examination confirmed she had been strangled.

"Black Lives Matter": Dad fuming after (white) teen was sent home from school for having $140 bright white (DREADLOCKS) [Braids]


Note: The child who is White is not wearing dreadlocks... she is wearing braids.

The White child is beautiful. And the White child's braids hair style is just as beautiful also. 

A dad is fuming after his daughter was sent home from school for having this incredible haircut – of long bright white DREADLOCKS.

Angry Darren Benson, 39, has given teachers at George Pindar School the hairdryer treatment after 13-year-old Chanise Benson caused a stir with her hairdo.

He splashed out $140 for her to have the style – which looks like the henchman twins from The Matrix sequels.

Chanise had the style done for her sister’s birthday during the half term break – but was sent home from school when she went back.

But Darren has accused the school of “double standards”- because a friend of hers of Jamaican-descent is allowed dreads.

The teenager was sent home from the school in Scarborough, North Yorks., after she broke school uniform rules.

Darren, 39, said: “It cost $140 and will stay in her hair for a year so it won’t be coming out.

“One of her friends at the school, who has Jamaican heritage, has the same style of hair cut but with a red stripe in it rather than white and she has been allowed to remain.”

Darren, of Scarborough, North Yorks., added: “I’ve read the policy regarding haircuts – and I can’t see what rule she has broken.”

Mr Benson says he contacted North Yorkshire County Council which told him he had to raise his objection with his daughter’s school directly.

A policy document on the school’s website states: ‘Please note we do not allow extreme, unnatural hairstyles or coloring. Any hair accessories should be of a practical nature and should not be decorative.

‘If you are in doubt please contact your child’s tutor at the school. Hair should be no shorter than a Grade 3 cut.

‘Please be aware that what is and is not acceptable will be decided by the school in line with this policy and the school’s decision is final.

‘Please note that in sending your child to George Pindar School that you are agreeing to ensure your child abides by this policy.

‘If you have any queries or questions regarding any aspect of uniform, jewellery, hairstyle, please could you contact the school.’

A George Pindar School spokesperson said: “It is the first time I have heard about the matter and obviously, with it being half-term, there is no way I can get the full background details about the matter.”

"Black Lives Matter": Unarmed Black Men Shot And Killed By Bad Police Meanwhile... Jury acquits leaders of Oregon gun standoff of federal charges

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A jury delivered an extraordinary blow to the government Thursday in a long-running battle over the use of public lands when it acquitted all seven defendants involved in the armed occupation of a national wildlife refuge in rural southeastern Oregon.

Tumult erupted in the courtroom after the verdicts were read when an attorney for group leader Ammon Bundy demanded his client be immediately released, repeatedly yelling at the judge. U.S. marshals tackled attorney Marcus Mumford to the ground, used a stun gun on him several times and arrested him.

U.S. District Judge Anna Brown said she could not release Bundy because he still faces charges in Nevada stemming from an armed standoff at his father Cliven Bundy's ranch two years ago.

The Portland jury acquitted Bundy, his brother Ryan Bundy and five others of conspiring to impede federal workers from their jobs at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, 300 miles southeast of Portland.

Even attorneys for the defendants were surprised by the acquittals.

"It's stunning. It's a stunning victory for the defense," said Robert Salisbury, attorney for defendant Jeff Banta. "I'm speechless."

Said defendant Neil Wampler: "This is a tremendous victory for rural America and it is a well-deserved, overwhelming defeat for a corrupt and predatory federal government."

The U.S Attorney in Oregon, Billy J. Williams, issued a statement defending the decision to bring charges against the seven defendants: "We strongly believe that this case needed to be brought before a Court, publicly tried, and decided by a jury.

A Bundy daughter, Bailey Logue, said family members were savoring the victory, and would begin Friday to determine their next step.

"First thing, we're going to get down on our knees and thank our Heavenly Father, and we're going to enjoy our families," Logue said. "Tomorrow, we're going to figure out what we're going to do next."

Messages left for Bundy family matriarch Carol Bundy in Bunkerville, Nevada, weren't immediately returned.

The Oregon case is a continuation of the tense standoff with federal officials at Cliven Bundy's ranch in 2014. Cliven, Ammon and Ryan Bundy are among those who are to go on trial in Nevada early next year for that standoff.

While the charges in Oregon accused defendants of preventing federal workers from getting to their workplace, the case in Nevada revolves around allegations of a more direct threat: An armed standoff involving dozens of Bundy backers pointing weapons including assault-style rifles at federal Bureau of Land Management agents and contract cowboys rounding up cattle near the Bundy ranch outside Bunkerville.

Daniel Hill, attorney for Ammon Bundy in the Nevada case, said he believed the acquittal in Oregon bodes well for his client and the other defendants facing felony weapon, conspiracy and other charges.

"When the jury here hears the whole story, I expect the same result," Hill told The Associated Press in Las Vegas.

Hill also said he'll seek his client's release from federal custody pending trial in Nevada.

Ammon Bundy and his followers took over the Oregon bird sanctuary on Jan. 2. They objected to prison sentences handed down to Dwight and Steven Hammond, two local ranchers convicted of setting fires. They demanded the government free the father and son and relinquish control of public lands to local officials.

The Bundys and other key figures were arrested in a Jan. 26 traffic stop outside the refuge that ended with police fatally shooting Robert "LaVoy" Finicum, an occupation spokesman. Most occupiers left after his death, but four holdouts remained until Feb. 11, when they surrendered following a lengthy negotiation.

Federal prosecutors took two weeks to present their case, finishing with a display of more than 30 guns seized after the standoff. An FBI agent testified that 16,636 live rounds and nearly 1,700 spent casings were found.

During trial, Bundy testified that the plan was to take ownership of the refuge by occupying it for a period of time and then turn it over to local officials to use as they saw fit.

Bundy also testified that the occupiers carried guns because they would have been arrested immediately otherwise and to protect themselves against possible government attack.

The bird sanctuary takeover drew sympathizers from around the West.

It also drew a few protesters who were upset that the armed occupation was preventing others from using the land. They included Kieran Suckling, executive director of the Center for Biological Diversity.

Suckling on Thursday called the acquittals "extremely disturbing" for "anyone who cares about America's public lands, the rights of native people and their heritage, and a political system that refuses to be bullied by violence and racism.

"The Bundy clan and their followers peddle a dangerous brand of radicalism aimed at taking over lands owned by all of us. I worry this verdict only emboldens the kind of intimidation and right-wing violence that underpins their movement," Suckling said.

One of Ammon Bundy's attorneys, Morgan Philpot, had a different perspective after watching Mumford get tackled by marshals.

"His liberty was just assaulted by the very government that was supposed to protect it, by the very government that just prosecuted his client — unjustly as the jury found."

There's another Oregon trial coming up over the wildlife refuge.

Authorities had charged 26 occupiers with conspiracy. Eleven pleaded guilty, and another had the charge dropped. Seven defendants chose not to be tried at this time. Their trial is scheduled to begin Feb. 14.

AUTOPSY: TULSA POLICE VICTIM WAS HIGH ON PCP WHEN HE DIED


 AUTOPSY: TULSA POLICE VICTIM WAS HIGH ON PCP WHEN HE DIED


AP Photo
FILE - In this Sept 27, 2106 file photo, people march in a "National Prayer and Call For Justice" march in Tulsa, Okla., in response to the police shooting of Terence Crutcher. Oklahoma's medical examiner says Crutcher, an unarmed man shot dead by a Tulsa police officer had the hallucinogenic drug PCP in his system when he died.


TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- An unarmed black man shot dead by a white police officer after his car broke down on a city street last month was high on the hallucinogenic drug PCP in when he died, according to toxicology tests released by a medical examiner Tuesday.

Terence Crutcher, 40, had "acute phencyclidine intoxication" when he died Sept. 16. Officer Betty Jo Shelby was charged with first-degree manslaughter after his death, with a prosecutor saying she reacted unreasonably when Crutcher disobeyed her commands.

Medical literature says PCP, also known as Angel Dust, can induce euphoria and feelings of omnipotence as well as agitation, mania and depression.

Dr. Matthew Lee, a physician and pharmacist who also works for the Virginia Office of the Chief Medical Examiner's Office, said the 96 nanograms per milliliter of PCP found in Crutcher's system is more than enough to cause someone to be uncoordinated, agitated and combative.

"It's on the high side, relative to causing some sort of impairment or intoxication," Lee said.

Videos from a police helicopter and a dashboard camera showed Crutcher walking away from Shelby on a North Tulsa street with his arms in the air, but the footage does not offer a clear view of when Shelby fired the single shot.

Tulsa police had said previously that they had found a vial of PCP in Crutcher's SUV - and the police officer's lawyer said she had completed drug-recognition training and believed Crutcher might have been under the influence of drugs.

Lawyers for Crutcher's family have said previously that even if drugs were present, the shooting wasn't justified.

According to an eight-page report from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Oklahoma City, Crutcher suffered a "penetrating gunshot wound of chest" and noted both of Crutcher's lungs were pierced and that he had four broken ribs. In addition to saying Crutcher had PCP in his system, it said he was obese and had too much cholesterol in his gallbladder. The examiner recovered a bullet fragment from Crutcher's left chest.

Shannon McMurray, one of Shelby's defense attorneys, said the report helped provide an early "snapshot" of evidence in the case and that as more is released, "it will be clear in my mind as the case unfolds that the officer was justified in her use of force." Another Shelby lawyer, Scott Wood, had said previously that the officer was so focused on Crutcher that she didn't hear other officers near her before she fired her service weapon. Almost simultaneously, another officer fired a Taser at Crutcher as he moved toward his SUV.

In a text message to The Associated Press on Tuesday, Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler said he expected the tests would show Crutcher had drugs in his system, including the possibility of PCP.
Shelby, 42, has pleaded not guilty. She faces between four years to life in prison if convicted.

Tulsa has a history of troubled race relations. Four months before Crutcher's death, a white former Tulsa County reserve deputy, Robert Bates, was sentenced to a four-year prison term on a second-degree manslaughter conviction. He said he confused his stun gun with his handgun when he fatally shot an unarmed black man in April 2015. That shooting led to the temporary suspension of the reserve deputy program after a report found poor training of the volunteer officers, a lack of oversight and widespread cronyism.

Dr. Carlos Julio Dávila Forero Shares Up Close Look At The Pijao Indigenous People of Colombia News by Van Stone, Philadelphia Front Page News (frontpagenews1@yahoo.com) (267)293-9201

Central Colombia: Philadelphia Front Page News- Dr. Carlos Julio Davila Forero, an independent Social Psychologist, has completed a book called "The Country of the Snow" (The Unknown and Fantastic History of the Village-Pijao).

Forero’s goal is to help more people around the world to understand the customs, myths and legends of the indigenous peoples Pijao tribes, who lived in the center of the Republic of Colombia.

Before the coming of the Spanish "conquerors" the territory of what is now Colombia was originally inhabited by indigenous peoples including the Pijao, Muisca, Quimbaya, and Tairona.

“At this time I am writing the history of most of the old tribes of indigenous people of Colombia which had been in our land before the arrival of the Spaniards,” says Dr. Forero.

Many of the Indigenous peoples experienced a reduction in population during the Spanish rule.

Dr. Forero has used photographs of "three aborigines that belong to the Emberá people. "A group is the Embera Catió and another group is the Embera Chami, one in the Department of Choco and the Oteo in the Department of Antioquia".

"Another photo. The aborigine who has crown of feathers is the Hukini indigenous group. There is a photo of the Nukini in Brazil," he said.

Some of the largest indigenous groups are the Wayuu, the Paez, the Pastos, the embera, and the Zenu. The departments of La Guajira, Cauca, Narino, Cordoba, and Sucre have the largest indigenous populations.   

Although Dr. Carlos Forero does like more writing, and a long time dedication to the literature of fiction, lately the development of stories of the indigenous tribes in Colombia, before the arrival of the Spaniards is his specialty.

Forero tells stories about Pijao indigenous peoples of Colombia respecting their customs, traditions, legends, religions, visual arts, architecture, music, food, education, health, beauty and fashion, etc.

“For this reason many people read about the indigenous peoples and learn a lot from them,” says Forero.

Dr. Carlos Forero uses pictures of the Indigenous peoples to improve awareness of and respect and equality for Pijao Colombians as well as others.

The photos are so naturally beautiful that Van Stone, publisher of the Philadelphia Front Page News-Magazine in the United States, has begun a series about indigenous women, men and women of Colombia with Dr. Forero as a leader in Colombia studies and news.

Colombian society must make much more significant strides in viewing "various racial, ethnic and social groups more accurately and respectfully".

However, indigenous peoples of Colombia such as the Pijao have been largely left out of this overall need of greater acceptance and inclusion. Dr. Carlos Forero will be sharing more information with the Philadelphia Front Page News-Magazine, and focus on understanding the true extent of society’s negative and inaccurate perceptions of indigenous peoples of Colombia and finding the best means of overcoming them.

Special emphasis must be paid to priority indigenous places where there are high concentrations of poverty and where children face significant challenges to success.

Could the first Chinese have come from Egypt? Chinese have definite ideas about their heritage, so the idea that they may have come from Egypt is shocking


A decorated scientist has ignited a passionate debate with claims that the founders of Chinese civilization were not Chinese

 On a cool Sunday evening in March, a geochemist named Sun Weidong gave a public lecture to an audience of laymen, students, and professors at the University of Science and Technology in Hefei, the capital city of the landlocked province of Anhui in eastern China.

But the professor didn’t just talk about geochemistry.

He also cited several ancient Chinese classics, at one point quoting historian Sima Qian’s description of the topography of the Xia empire — traditionally regarded as China’s founding dynasty, dating from 2070 to 1600 B.C. “Northwards the stream is divided and becomes the nine rivers,” wrote Sima Qian in his first century historiography, the Records of the Grand Historian.

“Reunited, it forms the opposing river and flows into the sea.”

In other words, “the stream” in question wasn’t China’s famed Yellow River, which flows from west to east. “There is only one major river in the world which flows northwards. Which one is it?” the professor asked. “The Nile,” someone replied.

Sun then showed a map of the famed Egyptian river and its delta — with nine of its distributaries flowing into the Mediterranean. This author, a researcher at the same institute, watched as audience members broke into smiles and murmurs, intrigued that these ancient Chinese texts seemed to better agree with the geography of Egypt than that of China.

In the past year, Sun, a highly decorated scientist, has ignited a passionate online debate with claims that the founders of Chinese civilization were not in any sense Chinese but actually migrants from Egypt. He conceived of this connection in the 1990s while performing radiometric dating of ancient Chinese bronzes; to his surprise, their chemical composition more closely resembled those of ancient Egyptian bronzes than native Chinese ores.

Both Sun’s ideas and the controversy surrounding them flow out of a much older tradition of nationalist archaeology in China, which for more than a century has sought to answer a basic scientific question that has always been heavily politicized: Where do the Chinese people come from?

 Sun argues that China’s Bronze Age technology, widely thought by scholars to have first entered the northwest of the country through the prehistoric Silk Road, actually came by sea. According to him, its bearers were the Hyksos, the Western Asian people who ruled parts of northern Egypt as foreigners between the 17th and 16th centuries B.C., until their eventual expulsion.

He notes that the Hyksos possessed at an earlier date almost all the same remarkable technology — bronze metallurgy, chariots, literacy, domesticated plants and animals — that archaeologists discovered at the ancient city of Yin, the capital of China’s second dynasty, the Shang, between 1300 and 1046 B.C. Since the Hyksos are known to have developed ships for war and trade that enabled them to sail the Red and Mediterranean seas, Sun speculates that a small population escaped their collapsing dynasty using seafaring technology that eventually brought them and their Bronze Age culture to the coast of China.

Sun’s thesis proved controversial when the Chinese travel site Kooniao first posted it online in the form of a 93,000-character essay in September 2015. As the liberal magazine Caixincommented, “His courageous title and plain language attracted the interest of more than a few readers.” That title was Explosive Archaeological Discovery: The Ancestors of the Chinese People Came from Egypt, and the essay was reproduced and discussed online, on internet portals such as Sohu and popular message boards such as Zhihu and Tiexue.

Kooniao also set up a widely read page dedicated to the subject on the microblogging platform Weibo — hashtagged “Chinese People Come From Egypt” — which contains a useful sample of responses from the public. Some of these simply express outrage, often to the point of incoherence: “That expert’s absurd theory randomly accepts anyone as his forebears,” fumed one. “This is people’s deep inferiority complex at work!” Another asked, “How can the children of the Yellow Emperor have run over to Egypt? This topic is really too pathetic. The important thing is to live in the moment!”

Other commentators have been more thoughtful. If they are not fully convinced, they are at least willing to entertain Sun’s ideas. In fact, a rough count of comments from the intellectually curious outnumbers those of the purely reactionary by about 3-to-2. As one user wrote, “I approve. One has to look intelligently at this theory. Whether it turns to be true or false, it is worth investigating.” Another wrote, “The world is such a big place that one finds many strange things in it. One can’t say it is impossible.” One more wrote, “One can’t just sweepingly dismiss it as wrong or curse out the evidence as false. Exchanges between cultures can be very deep and distant.”

 Anticipating his critics, Sun wrote online that to examine anew the origins of Chinese civilization “may appear ridiculous in the eyes of some, because historians long ago stated clearly: We are the children of the Yan and Yellow Emperor.”

Historian Sima Qian took these legendary figures as the progenitor of the Han Chinese; and the Yellow Emperor’s great-grandson, Yu the Great, as the founder of the semimythical Xia dynasty.

These served as the origin stories for imperial China and continued to be credited for decades after the Republic replaced it in 1912, so that even the nation’s most iconoclastic and rebellious sons — Sun Yat-Sen, Chiang Kai-Shek, and People’s Republic founder Mao Zedong among them — have at some time or other felt the need to pay their respects at the Yellow Emperor’s tomb.

Even now, the oft-repeated claim that Chinese civilization is approximately 5,000 years old takes as its starting point the supposed reign of this legendary emperor.

Unbeknownst to many, an anti-Qing Dynasty agitator was the first to publish (under a pseudonym) this claim for the nation’s antiquity in 1903. As his nationalist ideology had it, “If we desire to preserve the survival of the Han Nation, then it is imperative that we venerate the Yellow Emperor.” At that time, the Qing dynasty was in serious decline, its obvious backwardness compared with Western powers the cause of much soul-searching.

Anti-Qing intellectuals began to examine critically the roots of Chinese civilization and, for the first time, seized on the idea that they lay in the West. The work that most captured their imagination was that of the French philologist, Albert Terrien de Lacouperie, who in 1892 published the Western Origin of the Early Chinese Civilization from 2300 B.C. to 200 A.D.

Translated into Chinese in 1903, it compared the hexagrams of the Book of Changes with the cuneiform of Mesopotamia and proposed that Chinese civilization originated in Babylon. The Yellow Emperor was identified with a King Nakhunte, who supposedly led his people out of the Middle East and into the Central Plain of the Yellow River Valley around 2300 B.C.

 By 1915, the theory was widespread enough that the national anthem of the republic, commissioned by President Yuan Shikai referred to it obliquely, calling China “the famous descendant from Kunlun Peak,” which Chinese mythology locates in the far, far West.

Another endorsement came from Sun Yat-Sen, founder of the Republic of China, who stated in his 1924 Three Principles of the People lectures that the “growth of Chinese civilization may … be explained by the fact that the settlers who migrated from another place to this valley already possessed a very high civilization.”

To these and other revolutionaries, Sino-babylonianism was not only the latest European scientific opinion. It was the hope that since China shared the same ancestry as other great civilizations, there was no ultimate reason why it should not catch up with more advanced nations in Europe and America.

Sino-Babylonianism fell out of favor in China during the late 1920s and early 1930s, when Japanese aggression escalated and a different nationalist politics took hold. Chinese historians, seeking to distance China from imperialist powers, cast a critical eye on Western origin theories and their earlier supporters. At around the same time, modern scientific archaeology was debuting in China.

The discovery of Neolithic pottery in Longshan, Shandong, in 1928 showed that eastern China had been inhabited by indigenous groups before the Bronze Age migration Lacouperie had posited. In the same year, excavation of the city of Yin began. On account of the excellence of the Yin-Shang’s material culture — its famous oracle bones, for example, whose writing is the ancestor of the modern Chinese script used today — that polity is often considered the “root of Chinese civilization,” situated well within China’s borders, in present-day Anyang, Henan.

In the end, Western origin theories were replaced by what sounds like a compromise: a dual-origin theory of Chinese civilization. The view proposed that Eastern Neolithic culture moving West encountered Western Neolithic culture moving East, fusing to form the progenitors of the Shang. It held steady until the 1950s.

But Chinese archeology took a radical swing toward more extreme nationalism after the 1949 founding of the People’s Republic of China, when, in the words of the historian James Leibold, “China’s scientific community closed inward on itself.” Nationalism and authoritarianism required the interpretation of archaeological evidence as proof that Chinese civilization had arisen natively, without outside influences. As the Sichuan University archaeologist — and eventual dissident — Tong Enzheng wrote in his fascinating account of the politicization of scholarship between 1949 and 1979: “Mao Zedong implemented a comprehensive anti-Western policy after 1949,” which expanded “already extant anti-imperialism … ultimately becoming total anti-foreignism. Unavoidably, Chinese archaeology was affected.”

Maoism also required a belief that Chinese civilization had developed in accordance with “objective” Marxist historical laws, from a primitive band to a socialist society. Mao-era archaeologists thus strove to use their findings to prove these laws, legitimizing the status quo.

As Xia Nai, the director of the Institute of Archaeology himself, wrote in a 1972 paper, “We archaeologists must follow the guide of Marxism, Leninism, and the thought of Mao Zedong, conscientiously fulfilling the great guiding principle of Chairman Mao, to ‘make the past serve the present.’”

It’s no surprise then that during the Cultural Revolution meetings were convened under such absurd headings as “Using the Antiquities Stored in the Temple of Confucius in Qufu County to criticize Lin Biao and Confucius.” Meanwhile, revolutionary sloganeering found its way into scientific publications alongside the data.

Blatant ideological bias faded from scientific endeavors in the post-1978 reform era, but the ultimate goal of Chinese archaeology — to piece out the nation’s history — remained. The best-known example from that era is the Xia-Shang-Zhou Chronology Project, directly inspired by the achievements of Egyptian archaeology. State Councilor Song Jian toured Egypt in 1995 and was particularly impressed by a genealogy of the pharaohs that went back to the third millennium B.C. This prompted him to campaign for a project — included in the government’s ninth five-year plan — that would give Chinese dynasties a comparable record.

Mobilizing over 200 experts on a budget of around $1.5 million over five years, the Chronology Project has been considered the largest state-sponsored project in the humanities since 1773, when the Qianlong emperor commissioned the Siku quanshu, an encyclopedia roughly 20 times the length of the Britannica.

Some questioned the Chronology Project’s motives. One of the most prominent detractors was University of Chicago historian Edward L. Shaughnessy, who complained, “There’s a chauvinistic desire to push the historical record back into the third millennium B.C., putting China on a par with Egypt. It’s much more a political and a nationalistic urge than a scholarly one.” Others criticized the project’s methods and results. The Stanford archaeologist Li Liu, for instance, took issue with the fact that it regarded the Xia as historical and fixed dates for it, when there is still no conclusive archaeological evidence for its existence.

But the project also had defenders, including Harvard anthropologist Yun Kuen Lee, who pointed out that “the intrinsic relationship between the study of the past and nationalism does not necessarily imply that the study of the past is inherently corrupted.” The usefulness of archaeology in bolstering a nation’s pride and legitimacy — explaining and, to some extent, justifying its language, culture, and territorial claims — means that most archaeological traditions have a nationalistic impulse behind them.

Thus, in Israel, archaeology focuses on the period of the Old Testament; in the Scandinavian countries, it focuses on that of the Vikings. “The important question that we should ask,” Yun went on to say, “is if the scientists of the project were able to maintain scientific rigor.”

In some ways, Sun’s current theory is an unintended result of the Chronology Project’s scientific rigor. At the project’s launch in 1996, he was a Ph.D. student in the radiation laboratory of the University of Science and Technology. Of the 200 or so items of bronze ware he was responsible for analyzing, some came from the city of Yin. He found that the radioactivity of these Yin-Shang bronzes had almost exactly the same characteristics as that of ancient Egyptian bronzes, suggesting that their ores all came from the same source: African mines.

Perhaps anticipating serious controversy, Sun’s doctoral supervisor did not allow Sun to report his findings at the time. Sun was asked to hand over his data and switched to another project. Twenty years after the start of his research and now a professor in his own right, Sun is finally ready to say all he knows about the Yin-Shang and China’s Bronze Age culture.

Although the public has mostly received Sun’s theory with an open mind, it still lies outside the academic mainstream. Since the 1990s, most Chinese archaeologists have accepted that much of the nation’s Bronze Age technology came from regions outside of China. But it is not thought to have arrived directly from the Middle East in the course of an epic migration. The more prosaic consensus is that it was transmitted into China from Central Asia by a slow process of cultural exchange (trade, tribute, dowry) across the northern frontier, mediated by Eurasian steppe pastoralists who had contacts with indigenous groups in both regions.

Despite this, the fascination with ancient Egypt appears unlikely to go away soon. As the Xia-Shang-Zhou Chronology project demonstrated, the sentiment has deep, politically tinged roots. These were on display again during President Xi Jinping’s state visit to Egypt in January to commemorate the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations. On arrival, Xi greeted Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi with an Egyptian proverb: “Once you drink from the Nile, you are destined to return.” They celebrated the antiquity of their two civilizations with a joint visit to the Luxor temple.

It remains to be seen whether Sun’s evidence will be incorporated into mainstream politics to prove a long-standing Sino-Egyptian cultural relationship. But if it is, the proverb Xi uttered after he set foot in Egypt will have been strangely prophetic.
