Racism

With Reputation at Risk, Racism to the Rescue

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

This year marks the 20th anniversary since South Africa's first democratic elections, which in 1994 drove the final nail into the coffin of Apartheid. To commemorate this event and measure the depth of racial healing between blacks and whites in "The New South Africa," longtime Mantle correspondent Michael J. Jordan launched a documentary-film project, The Clubhouse: A Post-Apartheid Story. Below is Part 1 of his six-part travelogue from his recent production trip, on the making of this film.

Tech / Ghetto Tracker: A Case in Bad Form

Thursday, September 5, 2013

So, some geeks thought it would be cool to put together a site that gives travelers or would-be neighborhood prospectors a way to separate nice hoods from the undesirables. 

Sure, it's a noble 1 percent thought, but where's some political correctness when you need it? And what's the criteria?

Is downtown NYC still undesirable when half the city is getting priced out of it and there's a Starbucks on every corner?  

Even worse the start-up and website looks to have conveniently changed to Good Part of Town since it got exposed for its foolery. 

Double bad job all around.

Euro2012: Ukraine's Cracked Showcase

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

One popular way for developing nations to announce to the world that they have made it onto the global stage in the early 21st century is to host a major international sporting event: From China's Beijing Olympics in 2008, to Russia's upcoming Winter Games in 2014, South Africa's World Cup stewardship in 2010 and Brazil's double coup of the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics; staging a spectacle of this magnitude is a clear signal to the world that you are now a country of note.  This was certainly the motivation for Poland and Ukraine's joint bid to host the Euro 2012 soccer championships this month.  But the event that was suppose to b

Thursday, September 22, 2011
