Jon Lee Anderson explores the history behind Obama’s handshake with Raúl Castro: http://nyr.kr/1e5BkzX
“Obama himself is the benefactor of an epic political struggle that took place a generation and more ago, in which Mandela may have had a more directly positive role than some of the men who previously occupied the White House. Paradoxically, given the constraints remaining in their own country, the Castro brothers played a role, too.”

[TW: Genocide] So much of being Black in America is seeing things that no one else sees, or wants to see. Sometimes, it turns out, there is indeed nothing there. […] And yet, many conspiracy theories are eventually proven true. The late Detroit mayor Coleman Young used to always say: “Just because you’re paranoid, don’t mean ain’t nobody out to get you.” Black people all over the world know that there are people out there who mean them harm and have a vested interest in writing off their claims as craziness, conspiracy theories, fantasy.
Thomas Jefferson did father Sally Hemings’s children; the CIA did help introduce crack cocaine into America’s inner cities; those doctors at Tuskegee Institute weren’t healing those Black men infected with syphilis; white folks in New Orleans, Chicago, and Washington, D.C. were plotting to reclaim neighborhoods from Blacks. The Chicago Police Department and the FBI did execute Black Panthers Fred Hampton and Mark Clark while they slept. — Robert E.
