Massive Walk to Address Human Trafficking Problem in Washington, DC

WASHINGTON, Sept. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Eradicating modern-day slavery is an enormous undertaking that begins with small steps. One group of Washington abolitionists is asking the local community to join the action by taking steps toward creating a slavery-free district.

The group DC Stop Modern Slavery (DC SMS) will host its second annual DC walk on Saturday Oct. 23, 2010 on the National Mall from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. to raise awareness about human trafficking and how to end it.

This year's 5K (3.1 miles) walk will build on the success of last year's walk, which raised about $40,000 for the cause of abolition, and attracted more than 700 participants. The walk is expected to be the largest anti-human trafficking event in the District's history.

"The DC Metro area is unfortunately an active zone both for foreign nationals being trafficked to the United States, and for U.S. citizens being trafficked domestically," said Ray Lian, DC SMS lead organizer.

The DC Stop Modern Slavery Walk complements President Barack Obama's resolve to fight human trafficking both nationally and internationally. Earlier this year, he urged Americans to learn about all types of modern slavery and said that fighting modern slavery and human trafficking is a "shared responsibility."

US poverty level hits record

The US authorities has announced that 14 per cent of Americans are living in poverty, the highest level since 1994.

The government defines poverty as a family of four living on less than $22,000 a year.

The statistics cover President Barack Obama's first year in office, when the recession left millions of people out of work and unemployment climbed to more than 10 per cent.

The report's release comes just weeks before the economy takes centre stage in upcoming US elections.

I'm sorry but this dude is kinda out there....

The winner of the NY primary was on the Rick Sanchez show today and I'm wondering, how did this guy get elected. He says he will use "eminent domain" to stop the building of the Mosque. Seems like hes just off his rocker. Read more about him on
the Christian Science Monitor.

Throughout the vast internet there are many arguments that I see. One of the biggest amongst the tea party and disgruntled whites is the idea of "W.E.T" or white entertainment television.

Most of these people think that if there is a BET, there should be a W.E.T. Their main argument is that it is not fair to have a BET if you don't have a W.E.T. They say that "why shouldn't there be a W.E.T?

I'm wondering, if there was a W.E.T, what would be televised on it? I guess white entertainment. But white entertainment is a broad thing. I'm sure that not every white person likes Seinfeld, Beavis and Butthead, NASCAR, Jackass, Glen Beck, and golf tournaments. Could W.E.T be a mix of all that? I don't think so. This is part of the problem of W.E.T.

There never is any insight as to what would be on this so called network. I don't think that nazi tv shows would be popular, like the neo nazis want. The tea party crowd already has Fox News. I figure that this network would also serve the neo nazis as well. The rednecks got FX, Spike and CMT. The yuppies got HGTV, VH1, and CNBC. Homosexuals have that gay network. How can W.E.T fill the needs of all these groups? Can W.E.T be something that can something for everybody? BET is for the young urban hip hop crowd, and doesn't apologize for that. Who will W.E.T truly represent?

I guess that most digruntled whites would think that W.E.T would level the playing field, but I don't think that it will ever be anything but alot of some bigots ideas. BET will still exist in it's present format as long as Viacom exists, and I think W.E.T will only be a talking point for disgruntled angry whites and nothing more. Unless they come up with a plan, it will never be.
