First off they still have the United Negro College Fund. The african american description makes absolutely no sense at all. When someone asks me about my race, i say White , not italian american. They are black, colored, negro.
Also the NAACP which along with a few more institutions have maintaned the name for historical sake.
Race is a flawed social construct yet so deep seated in American society that it won't change. But of course you realized there's italian american days , irish american days, etc.
Black is more current terminology as Colored/Negro is out of date. I'm glad to help you stay up to date.
Stay tuned folks more educational commentary to come!!
Actually negro is spanish for "black". They'll probably never drop the word negro as it is pretty much correct. Yes it's considered outdated but it is the correct term if you want to use the color black
Most of the articles out today have the target of the hit as Gary Hanley, again...he was friends with the slain Jason Molyneaux, not the potential Kinahan shooters who were arrested...those are the guys who killed Molyneaux...sometimes it's interesting how wildly different the various Irish news sources report the same story...
In a better (i.e., non-Mafia/non Michael Corleone) world, Frankie might have had a case for survival because of how Michael manipulated his loyalty:
Michael was at his most manipulative after the Tahoe shooting. First he played Tom's emotions like a violin ("I always wanted to be thought of as a brother by you, Michael"), then he scared the rs**t out of Frankie at Frankie's home--then said he wanted Frankie to "help me take my revenge." "Michael...anything," Frankie practically collapsed with relief. Michael sent him to put his head in the lion's mouth by meeting with the Rosatos--to suit Michael's purpose. If he settled the problems with the Rosatos, it was one more worry off Mijchael's mind. If the Rosatos killed, or tried to kill, him, it was further proof that Roth was behind the Tahoe shooting.
I remeber reading mikey scars say jackie took over his capos crew in early 1986 cause the guy was to old forgot his name. It probaly happend at frank deciccos wake cause that when gotti inducted 14 guys close to him abd made big decisions cause he new people were trying to kill him. Jackie nose preposed him for induction scars was made in 1988 xmis with jr. So whoever was close to scars was jackies crew.
24 nabbed in Palermo clan bust 'Money-laundering king' Corona caught
Italian police on Monday arrested 24 people in a major operation against Cosa Nostra clans in Palermo. Four of them were placed under house arrest, including a well-known Palermo criminal lawyer, Nico Riccobene. The probe uncovered the leading role of a boss who has come to the fore since the death of boss of bosses Totò Riina last November, Giuseppe Corona. Nicknamed the "money-laundering king", Corona was able to launder "rivers of money", police said.
Operation against the feared Casamonica clan in Rome, Reggio Calabria and Cosenza. 31 people ended up in handcuffs while six other people are currently wanted. The charge against them is to have formed and took part - in competition and with different roles - to a mafia association, the Casamonica clan, dedicated to drug trafficking, extortion, usury: all with the aggravating factor of the Mafia method. The thesis of the investigators is that at the head of the clan there is Giuseppe Casamonica, recently released from prison after about 10 years of imprisonment. The Sinti gypsies are allied with the ´ndrangheta.
Tony Ducks passed the Torch to rackateer from Bronx Buddy Luongo, but Vic and Gaspipe had a meeting with him and he disappeared. Ducks was pissed but christy Tic Furnari swayed the vote and the thugs from Brooklyn took charge and and went on their whole bloodlust binge eventually targeting Al D Arco and the rest is history.
