Former President Barack Obama suggested on Monday that “mommy issues” are holding America back.


Former President Barack Obama suggested on Monday that "mommy issues" are holding America back, reports the Kansas City Star. During a speech at the Obama Foundation Summit, he addressed the country's lack of progress on important matters including education and climate change.  He then commented: "The reason we don't do it is because we are still confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism, mommy issues."  "We are fraught with stuff, and so if that is the case, then the single most important thing we have to invest in is...people," Obama further noted. "We have got to get people to figure out how they work together in a cooperative, thoughtful, constructive way."  In a later discussion with author Dave Eggers, the former president said he still believes that if given the choice of a place and time to live, people would pick the United States. 
He added: "You'd choose now – or maybe two years ago."

More than seventy-five years after its publication, Gone with the Wind remains thoroughly embedded in American culture. Margaret Mitchell?s novel and the film produced by David O. Selznick have melded with the broader forces of southern history, southern mythology, and marketing to become, and remain, a cultural phenomenon.A Tough Little Patch of History (the phrase was coined by a journalist in 1996 to describe the Margaret Mitchell home after it was spared from destruction by fire) explores how Gone with the Wind has remained an important component of public memory in Atlanta through an analysis of museums and historic sites that focus on this famous work of fiction. Jennifer W. Dickey explores how the book and film threw a spotlight on Atlanta, which found itself simultaneously presented as an emblem of both the Old South and the New South. Exhibitions produced by the Atlanta History Center related to Gone with the Wind are explored, along with nearby Clayton County?s claim to fame as ?the Home of Gone with the Wind,? a moniker bestowed on the county by Margaret Mitchell?s estate in 1969. There?s a recounting of the saga of ?the Dump,? the tiny apartment in midtown Atlanta where Margaret Mitchell wrote the book, and how this place became a symbol for all that was right and all that was wrong with Mitchell?s writing.

The lingering shadows of those
who are gone from our grasp
bring comfort to those
who had to say behind.
Their voices inherit the wind
on cold and lonely nights.
Their voices can be heard
telling us everything is all right
when the shadows of loneliness
fall across our sight.
Our weeping call to come back
is answered in the wind
and the shaking branches
touched by a breeze.
Candles were lit to show us the way
when the clouds of darkness surround
and the voices inheriting the wind compound.
We walk with eyes blinded
into an eternal light
to be consumed within.
No one knows our boundaries
when angels take flight
and we only go when we are ready
to face the eternal night.
Those we left have no fear
we maybe gone, but we are still here.
Our voices inherit the wind on dark blustery nights.
We are those fleeting shadows
you catch from the corner of your eye.
We seek not to alarm you,
just to guide you along,
we are your past nudging you
into the future where you belong.

The classic work on American racism and the struggle for racial justice, now with a new foreword by Michelle AlexanderIn Faces at the Bottom of the Well, civil rights activist and legal scholar Derrick Bell uses allegory and historical example to argue that racism is an integral and permanent part of American society. African American struggles for equality are doomed to fail so long as the majority of whites do not see their own well-being threatened by the status quo. Bell calls on African Americans to face up to this unhappy truth and abandon a misplaced faith in inevitable progress. Only then will blacks, and those whites who join with them, be in a position to create viable strategies to alleviate the burdens of racism. "Freed of the stifling rigidity of relying unthinkingly on the slogan 'we shall overcome,'" he writes, "we are impelled both to live each day more fully and to examine critically the actual effectiveness of traditional civil rights remedies."With a new foreword by Michelle Alexander, Faces at the Bottom of the Well is urgent and essential reading on the problem of racism in America.

“You don’t have to be a full-on racist, just being a tiny bit racist is enough,” Kiwi director Taika Waititi says in a video for the New Zealand Human Rights Commission.

“Racism needs your help to survive.”

The New Zealander of the Year, known for What We Do in the Shadows and the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, launched a tongue-in-cheek campaign on June 14 for those “suffering in silence” from racism. Race Relations Commissioner Susan Devoy, speaking with Radio NZ, said one in three formal complaints to the Human Rights Commission were about racial discrimination.

She said Waititi was an obvious choice for the “Give Nothing to Racism” campaign and said he took a day off from working on Thor to shoot this video. The campaign site states that “racism starts small and is a light feeder” and the sarcastic humour used by Waititi could “stop casual racism from growing into something more extreme.” Credit: New Zealand Human Rights Commission via Storyful

Appearing as a panelist on an Al Jazeera debate on the issue, former BJP MP Tarun Vijay chose to deny that attacks on Africans had anything to do with racism. He rubbished allegations of racism in India, saying:, "If we were racist, why would we have the entire south (India)? Which is you know, completely Tamil, you know Kerala, you know Karnataka and Andhra. Why do we live with them? We have blacks, black people around us. You are denying your own nation, you are denying your ancestry, you are denying your culture."
