Bewildered Racial Injustice Or Out With the Immoral Color

The current incident with Arizona’s immigration law creates many administrative challenges within an existing complex global environment. In addition, confused Arizona and US citizens will ponder of misinterpretations resulting from lack of understanding. In essence, bewildered injustice can occur simply resulting from color of skin. Furthermore, a recent incident that sparked racial overtones involving Shirley Sherrod highlights the sensitivity of today’s continued environment. However, while a perplexed Arizona immigration law or the Sherrod incident is creating interest amongst the population, an additional and similar scenario written on Ezinearticles.com titled, “Bewildered Racial Injustice,” is generating additional interests. Hence, similar situations resulting from a color of skin is creating confrontations in various settings. As stated by Robinson (2009), “In fact, race-based policies have even created a new form of racism: reverse racism.”

In any event, continued racism events would not continue; in which a litigious society uses misguided capitalistic justice producing various events, which should have been abolished, if due-process laws were implemented. In other words, the racism events of the past, the reverse racism events at Remec Defense and Space, recent Arizona and Sherrod incidents, combined with future racism events would not occur if an existing legal society would focus on righteous justice rather than capitalistic or British Motor Works (BMW) justice. Unfortunately, focusing on capitalistic justice will cause racism events to flourish. As further stated in Luke 11:52, “Woe to you experts in the law, because you have taken away the key to knowledge. You yourselves have not entered, and you have hindered those who were entering.” In other words, the justice system practiced by Attorneys Geyman, Ingrassia, and others have denied or hindered opportunity through not listening and ignoring factual or statistical data. In addition, the justice systems practiced by aforementioned attorneys have allowed racism to flourish through capitalistic justice. Furthermore, the key to knowledge or further opportunities are denied allowing racism events to continue. Regrettably, misguided capitalistic justice produces bewildered injustice. Furthermore, as commented by an attorney, “why should the attorney focus on a $16 per hour employee when the attorney is earning $300 per hour?”
For instance, recently a Chief Executive Officer finds amusement in comparing the Honorable president’s wife as a subhuman monkey. As stated by Sue (2010), “But Walt Baker, the CEO of the Tennessee Hospitality Association believes she resembles a chimpanzee, and he found the idea so hilarious he had to share his racism with his pals.” In essence, Walt Baker had a blatant disrespect for the First Lady, Michelle Obama. However, as news of racist comments spread, repercussions followed. As stated by Sue (2010), “As the fallout over the crude email continued and made it to the local news channel, Spyridon released a statement condemning Baker’s email, as ‘appalling and unacceptable’ and terminated the NCVB’s ‘contract with Mr. Baker’s marketing agency, Mercatus Communications.'”

Furthermore and in a separate incident, a scholar and African American University Professor finds himself arrested for using an alternative entrance method. In essence, Harvard Professor Henry Gates Jr. was arrested for entering his own home. However, Professor Gates Jr. just arrived via taxi from a long journey from China feeling tired and jet-lagged. In addition, the phrase “Know thy Neighbor” was overlooked. Hence, returning from a very long trip and having difficulty entering your own home after discovering tampering does not create bright spirits. Thus, a long journey from China, the Moroccan taxi driver who helped in opening the door, combined with a tampered lock and being confronted in one’s own home after identification appears ignored would generate unpleasant comments. Unfortunately, capitalistic justice through negligence produces many racist events.

Nevertheless, in another twist and concern denying entry to an open-door premise was the incident of African-Americans being denied admittance toward swimming pool activities. In other words, African American children are denied entry toward swimming pool activities as an individuals pigment may cause disturbance toward a swimming clubs facility. In essence, swimming pool entry is based upon a color of skin. Thus, the racism events, which should have been abolished, continue from lack of righteous justice.

In the meantime, while racism events continue and are ignored by capitalistic justice, reverse racism events are additionally occurring. For instance, a Veteran such as myself, and former defense and space employee reports toward upper management a senior Caucasian coworker comments of “monkey proof instructional materials” to a primary Asian and African American workforce, which eventually results in exit activities. In other words, Remec Defense & Space and currently Cobham was undertaking an excellence program and attempting to improve the current atmosphere. The work area consisted primarily of Asian or other ethnic groups. During the ongoing excellence program, a senior Caucasian employee reports of “monkey proof instructional material” to an ethnic workforce. In essence, employment favoritism is focused toward non-Caucasian and correspondingly, one should not distort the color in the workplace similar as the swimming pool incident.

Nonetheless, the statistical chart focusing toward race percentage and not the obvious continuous age discrimination shows an out with the whitey mission. In other words, the percentage appears high from a primary non-Caucasian workforce as if sending an at-will racism message. Furthermore, considering Fiel’s comments of “…not speaking English,” human resources comments of “lacking fit,” human resources comments, “we can hire who we want,” and prior discussions that Mexico is a half hours drive would lead toward profiling or reverse discrimination in the workplace. In addition, when other limited Caucasian Remec Defense & Space employees and with other referenced comments shows that an at-will reverse racism event is taking place. Unfortunately, given ignored capitalistic justice through selective hearing combined with recent shooting rampage would certainly send a message. On the other hand, the incidences could be described as normal American behavior resulting from many historical experiences.

Thus, job opportunities within an organization or through the application process are denied employment resulting from skin color intended to fulfill other non-Caucasian requirements while attorneys ignore reverse racism allowing such practices to continue. In other words, current Caucasians should not be held accountable for prior brainless racism events. However, creating such employment practice could place unqualified individuals in positions destined for more ignored or unfavored colored applicant.

Therefore, unfortunate skin color creates blockades to opportunity. Furthermore, as stated by an ehow (2009) contributor, “At times, such a practice, as laudable is it is for the goals it tries to attain, causes qualified Caucasian males to be overlooked for positions in favor of minority applicants who are not qualified.” The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language (2007) states reverse discrimination is, “Discrimination against members of a dominant or majority group, especially when resulting from policies established to correct discrimination against members of a minority or disadvantaged group.”

Regrettably, combined with referenced materials, reverse discrimination at Remec Defense & Space through denied opportunities or communication retaliation, overcoming Asian relatives, and a nearby Mexican border produces various avenues of racial discrimination while seeking further ethnic candidates from prior downsized employees. Unfortunately, individuals such as others and I attempt creating justice through capitalistic attorneys, however the racism messages appears lost or ignored. Furthermore, when individuals exercise their given rights, individuals are further retaliated against through denied unemployment and become members of a black-ball society. In other words, individuals are insured through further denied employment opportunities for exercising constitutional respective rights. Furthermore, when individuals report incidences, then individuals become targets for retaliation. Therefore, given the prior and referenced events, racism in any form will continue unless other administrative action including disbarment is taken. In addition, establishing substantial increased retroactive triple punitive damages for justice systems, the EEOC, and for the individual against capitalistic attorneys might create awareness toward unaccomplished at-will racism events. In other words, given racism in America resulting from unfocused capitalistic justice, racism events in any form will flourish unless an acceptable American tradition.

In conclusion, the highlighted racism events mentioned are only a snippet of current practices allowed resulting from inactive capitalistic attorneys. In addition, racism events will continue in either form including reverse racism unless administrative action is taken. Unfortunately, reporting racism events or attempting justice is rewarded with retaliation. On the other hand, if desired racism events as practiced in prior years are the desired goal, then further unwanted news events will likely occur.

The Great Law of Genghis Khan

Upon ascending to the title of Genghis Khan, the young Mongol leader found himself the ruler of dozens of fractious tribes, composed of men and women of different ethnicities, religions and cultural backgrounds. Formerly members of the Tatars, the Kereyids, the Naiman and the Mongol tribes, these man and women were held together only by their devotion to Genghis Khan. He knew that for this new people to function as one he would have to take steps to prevent their going to war with each other, and so he designed the Great Law, one that superseded all local laws and that was aimed at preventing the causes of traditional tension and strife.

The first new law that he instigated was to strike at the heart of one of the greatest causes of strife amongst the tribes. Traditionally men could kidnap women of another tribe to take as wives, causing feuds to arise between the tribes, resulting in decades of raiding and counter raiding as each group sought justice. Genghis Khan forbade the kidnapping of women from henceforth, allowing wronged tribes to appeal to him for retribution against the perpetrator.

Another new law was aimed to end the practice of capturing and enslaving Mongols so as to force them into prolonged servitude. This practice caused great distress to the social fabric, causing men and women anguish beyond measure and ensuring that the tribes remained focused against each other.

A third law declared that all children born of a man, whether from his wife or concubine were legitimate heirs, and that it was no longer legal to sell a woman to be another man’s wife, and he also outlawed adultery, which in the Mongol society was defined as any open sexual relation between sufficiently different families as to cause strife between them.

Finally, he made the theft of animals from neighboring tribes a capital crime, since raiding was one of the greatest sources of conflict and enmity between his people, and ordered that nobody could hunt wild animals during the summer months, ensuring that there would be plenty of food for the winter. He also passed a universal law of religious toleration, probably the first of its kind.

California’s Gun Control Laws and Legislation

California is considered to have some of the strictest gun control laws in the country with approximately 950 firearm laws currently in effect. Supporters of stricter gun laws argue that these laws are necessary to curb crime and enhance safety, while critics of gun control argue that the laws infringe upon the Constitutional right to bear arms afforded to all citizens by the Second Amendment, and that safety is reduced because citizens are less able to use firearms to protect themselves. Because there are very few federal firearms laws, individual states have been left to regulate the sale, possession, and use of firearms and ammunition. As a result, state laws vary significantly from state-to-state.

In 2012 alone, no fewer than six bills have been introduced in California that address existing gun laws or create new gun laws. These bills include:

  • Senate Bill 610 – Concealed Handgun Permit Application (in effect since January 2012)
  • Senate Bill 819 – Transfer of Background Check Fees (in effect since January 2012)
  • Assembly Bill 144 – Unloaded Handgun Open Carry Ban (in effect since January 2012)
  • Assembly Bill 809 – Long Gun Registration Law (effective in 2014)
  • Assembly Bill 1527 – Long Gun Open Carry Ban (pending)
  • Senate Bill 427 – Ammunition Registration (vetoed)

Senate Bill 610 states that Gun owners are not required to obtain liability insurance before getting a permit to carry a concealed weapon. The law also standardizes the application process and does not require an applicant to pay for training courses prior to obtaining a permit. This was the only recent legislation that was applauded by groups who urge less restrictive gun laws.

Senate Bill 819 allows the Department of Justice to access the Dealer Record of Sales (DROS) funds in order to pay for the enforcement of certain gun possession laws. Originally, DROS funds were used only to pay for the administrative costs of obtaining background checks. Critics of this law argue that there will be insufficient DROS funds to fund enforcement.

Gun control advocates supported both Assembly Bill 144 and 809. AB 144 prohibits a person from openly carrying an unloaded handgun in most public places; and is already effective; and AB 809 will become effective on January 1, 2014, and requires the registration of all newly purchased rifles and shotguns. Currently, there is no state law that requires registration of rifles or shotguns, and only new residents of California are required to register handguns within 60 days. Failure to register a handgun is a misdemeanor; however, law enforcement typically will not charge gun owners who comply with the registration law after the 60 days.

In the wake of the recent gun crimes in Arizona and Colorado, Assembly Bill 1527 was recently passed in California and is now awaiting the governor to approve or veto. The bill would prohibit the open carry of long guns, which includes rifles and shotguns. Critics of AB 1527 argue that this is unconstitutional, while supporters argue that this is merely a necessary expansion of AB 144, which now outlaws the carry of open unloaded handguns. Supporters argue that the sight of rifles and shotguns can be frightening and should be prohibited in most public places.

Governor Jerry Brown, who is a gun-owner, vetoed Senate Bill 427, which would have allowed police to collect sales records from ammunition retailers, required retailers to notify the police if they intended to sell ammunition; and prohibited the online and mail order purchase of certain calibers of ammunition. Critics of SB 427 argued that many of the calibers of ammunition that were identified in the law are popular among hunters, and would have an impact on sales.

In general, groups that advocate for gun laws argue that strict gun laws help reduce violence, particularly domestic violence. Advocates point out that states with strict gun laws have lower incidences of suicides and crimes of passion that result in homicide. In 2010, 8,775 out of almost 13,000 murders were committed with firearms. Opponents of gun laws, however, argue that the right to bear arms must not be infringed upon, and that law abiding citizens do not need restrictions; while non law-abiding gun owners will not be deterred from criminal activity regardless of gun laws. A 2010 survey estimates that approximately 300 million firearms are owned by civilians in the United States, which is 50% of all guns in the world. It is estimated that there are 88 guns per 100 U.S. residents, the highest per capita in the world. In comparison, the second highest gun ownership per capital is Serbia, with 58 guns per 100 residents.

The debate regarding gun control extends beyond California and the United States. The United Nations has tried to create an international treaty to regulate global arms trades, which is estimated at $60 billion every year. The treaty would require all countries to establish national regulations to control the transfer of firearms and to regulate firearms brokers. It would also require countries to determine whether exported weapons would be used to violate international human rights or humanitarian laws, or be used by terrorists or organized crime. Presently, there are 192 member States of the United Nations.

Beware of Those Who Demand Justice and Enlist the Society to Swarm in Mass Against Perpetrators

There are huge numbers of people who do not want government to exert its authority over common citizens, rather they want to use what they call social justice to control the people and prevent crime. However, in many regards history shows us this is a big mistake because the justice of the crowd is swift and violent, often permanent, and definitely unforgiving of the individuals it chooses on a whim to call out. In fact, justice by way of the social mob is fairly unjust as most past events have shown.

If you doubt this, and you’d like to see these types of scenarios play out in real time, it’s easy to watch on Internet forums, blogs, and social networks as a group of people with a similar opinion will call out the individual who thinks a little differently. They will definitely go attack that person verbally, and abuse them. As the individual who doesn’t agree gets pummeled, other people jump on board and start saying things that is out of character for them, and the whole group gets riled up like a pack of wolves.

This is exactly what happens with street gangs and violent criminal behavior where groups of people do almost the unthinkable. Things that they would never do on their own, but once they get into a group they are somehow in a different mindset. The Salem witch trials were very interesting in that regard, along with the French revolution where they beheaded all of the leadership and royalty. These things happen all the time, on smaller scale. It’s how human behavior works, it’s not a good thing, but it is the reality.

If we are to live in a free society, with freedom of speech and free liberty, and if we are to stand for the individual, and individual rights, then we must stay away from the use of society to enforce laws and behavior without some sort of buffer in between. I would say beware of those who demand justice and are willing to enlist the society to swarm against the individual, or anyone they call out is a perpetrator, because that isn’t always; real justice.

You see, as the founder of a think tank, I am watching more and more drift towards this line of thinking, and the concepts of social control over the masses. I don’t approve of that because I watch how easily the masses are controlled by the media, and the winds of current events, and things taken out of proportion on social networks. We are in a dangerous new age and we have to be very careful. This is serious business, and you only have to step back for a moment see it. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.

Warez and the Crack Factor of Internet Piracy – Can Piracy Law Stop Crack Addiction?

Warez often originates from hackers that crack a code for the thrill of the challenge. But “crackers,” those in the hacker world who crack and profit from software piracy, have capitalized on the efforts of hackers and their cracked codes – successfully building a billion dollar international underground economy. This underground community of “cracker” pirates thrives on international software and Internet piracy.

Litigators, copyright holders, and media giants are working together with law enforcement agencies to beat down the doors of the pirates’ virtual underground warehouses. New copyright laws and international piracy treaties are on the table at nations across the world, awaiting rewritten code to revitalize current piracy laws and keep up with the swift currents of Internet technology. FBI operations go undercover by names such as the 2001 Operation Buccaneer, Operation Bandwidth, and Digital Piratez, and the more recent Operation Site Down, Operation Copycat, Operation Jolly Roger and Operation Fast Link. Warez Operation Buccaneer resulted in 58 search warrants worldwide – which was the “largest” crackdown of 2001. Operation Bandwidth corralled the pirates by setting up a fake warez software piracy website. The Digital Piratez operation resulted in only 9 warrants. This was just the beginning of the Warez crackdown and the FBI’s foray into the world of crack addiction.

The warez pirates continue to circumvent the piracy laws that are on the verge of crumbling down their underground economy. As they continue their overseas pirating escapades – so to does the FBI continue their undercover operations. A 2008 United States Department of Justice report summarizes the statistics of the warez operations Sitedown and Fastlink – which resulted in 108 felony convictions, confiscation of over one-hundred million dollars worth of pirated software, and 200 search warrants that traveled to over 15 countries. Far more than the 58 search warrants that served the pirates of 2001. In 2007, there were 217 intellectual property cases filed. Letters from hackers under investigation litter the Internet – warning their co-conspirators to “get out” before it’s too late.

The FBI wasn’t alone in the warez crackdown operations. Fifteen countries assisted the US in their search for warez piracy. Suppliers who supply the hardware to a warez website, Scripters who help build a website, Brokers who develop active groups, and Encoders who overwrite the copyright protection, have all been held liable in federal court. Charges included not only copyright infringement, but also conspiracy to commit copyright infringement, circumventing copyright infringement and trafficking illegal goods.

Piracy law will continue to gain attention by law enforcement agencies and warez pirates. The US House unanimously approved the Prioritizing Resources and Organization for Intellectual Property Act which allows for current federal law to be rewritten for liberal seizure procedures and the creation of a position for a presidentially appointed U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Representative. It also creates a new division in the Department of Justice for intellectual property enforcement and ten positions within embassies. Internet piracy is being tracked daily by the feds. But the heat won’t be putting out the pirates completely anytime soon.

The warez scene is addictive. Hackers live for the challenge of cracking a code – even if there isn’t any financial gain. Warez groupies get a rush from seeing how fast a cracked file can start spreading like wildfire. Pirates that serve international traffickers prey on these addictions – offering slick trades of expensive hardware and digital ware that feeds the warez scene. Piracy laws are building up strength to fight billions of dollars of intellectual property theft and copyright infringement. But they are also fighting an addiction. And addictions can skew perceptions. The hackers and crackers of the warez scene might not see the reality of piracy law until the Feds come knocking at their door. Reality will then strike as hard as the clang of iron bars.
