Terminally ill Angola 3 member granted immediate release; state to appeal ruling | NOLA.com

It is unclear whether Wallace will survive much longer if he is released from Elayn Hunt Correctional Center in St. Gabriel, where he was recently moved to the hospital wing fro solitary confinement. He was diagnosed with advanced liver cancer earlier this year and recently said he only had two months to live.Kendall and Nick Trenticosta, another lawyer acting on behalf of Wallace and his fellow Angola 3 members, said it’s probably more a matter of weeks, not months.Amnesty International Executive Director Steven W. Hawkins said he was happy with Jackson’s ruling, but added, “tragically, this step toward justice has come as Herman is dying from cancer with only days or hours left to live. No ruling can erase the cruel, inhuman and degrading prison conditions he endured for more than 41 years.”Wallace’s legal team said litigation into his “unconstitutional confinement in solitary…for four decades will continue under his name.” Wallace along with fellow Black Panther Albert Woodfox were both implicated in the savage stabbing death of Angola prison guard Brent Miller in the early 1970s.To this day, both Wallace and Woodfox insist they are innocent of Miller’s murder and say their conviction came solely as a result of their involvement with the Black Panther movement. Both men had been key in forming the first local chapter of the Black Panthers at Angola and advocating against the culture of violence and rape pervasive there at the time.

"I'm not racist, my wife is Asian!" What will happen when racist, anti-social, anti-diversity, conservative, anti-feminist, anti-black, anti-asian white men marry "traditional, family oriented," status-obsessed, racist asian tiger moms who hope their children look white for privilege - and produce half asian sons who look totally asian and hear "no asian guys"? what happens when half-asian sons grow up to look "too asian," and have a white dad and asian mom who are mocking asian men, while society is unapologetically racist against asian men? an honest appraisal of self-hatred, fetishization, and psycho-sexual racism by the very worried son of a racist, black-hating, holocaust denier, Nazi-sympathizer and a racist, extremely violent, self-hating chinese woman.

Why does it seem that the men that pursue Asian women as a "last resort," are generally the most racist, spiteful and hateful people - especially against Asian men, other minorities and white women? If Asian women prefer White men - why is this, and what happens to the children - especially if they look predominantly Asian? Compiled by Asian-looking Eurasians and Hapas themselves. A community effort to explore the unintended consequences of "white fever" and "yellow fever", racism, fetishes, power imbalances, stereotypes, and the effect it has on a staggeringly large, growing, and unexplored new demographic. Why does it seem the children of Asian men and White women fare better and are more successful? Why is there such a double standard against Asian men and white women, whereas Asian women essentially default to White men? What happens when Half Asian sons resemble Asian men? Why do so many White supremacists, alt-rightists, and White Nationalists have Asian partners? Why do racist white men fetishize Asian women, and why do Asian women fetishize white men - and what does that mean for the children? compiled by the son of a neo-nazi and a chinese woman.
