Oil and the Slave Trade. Gregory Savioz-Buck, Intern, University of Sherbrooke, Canada.

Profit serves as the linchpin of the capitalist system, permeating every aspect of our society. This relentless pursuit of financial gain is synonymous with progress and prosperity. Oil companies epitomize the essence of this capitalist framework, being massive enterprises that amass immense wealth. However, it is imperative to acknowledge that greater the profit, greater the damage. Oil corporations are enormously affluent, but their operations bear a substantial burden of responsibility for widespread environmental degradation. Their unrelenting exploration, excavation, and exploitation of certain ecosystems come at a significant ecological cost. An intriguing connection surfaces here, one that interlinks the capitalist machine epitomized by oil giants with the historical atrocity of the slave trade. It is crucial to clarify that we are not equating oil companies with a new form of slavery, but there exist parallels between the profit-driven mechanisms at play. Both systems share a c

Modern-Day Tulsa, Ongoing Racial Discrimination, and the Fight for Racial Equality

The history of the United States is a complex tapestry woven with contrasting threads, some bright, others mournful and grotesque. The Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921 represents one of the worst chapters in American history. It's a story we must confront today as a stark reminder of the long and challenging journey towards racial equality. Greenwood, known as "Black Wall Street," was a thriving Black and Native American community that had defied the odds by accumulating wealth through early 20th-century oil discoveries in Oklahoma. The resilience and prosperity of this community proved to be a thorn in the side of white residents who resented the growing Black wealth. This resentment laid the groundwork for the tragic events of May 31 and June 1, 1921. The Tulsa Massacre left over 35 blocks of the city in ruins, more than 1,200 homes destroyed, and an estimated 300 people dead, most of them Black. Ten thousand people were left homeless. The events of 1921 in Tulsa aren't


Navigating the landscape of government agencies and their programs can be frustrating for entrepreneurs and small business owners. Two agencies that are at the forefront of discussions on federal government assistance to small businesses are the Small Business Administration (SBA) and the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA). While both agencies seek to foster economic growth by providing support to businesses, they serve distinct purposes and cater to different demographics. In this article, we will explore the differences between the SBA and MBDA to help you better understand their respective roles and how they can benefit your business. The Small Business Administration (SBA): The Small Business Administration, commonly known as the SBA, is a federal agency that primarily focuses on assisting small businesses, regardless of their ownership. Established in 1953, the SBA offers a range of services, including financial assistance, educational resources, a

Focusing on the Racial Aspects of Climate Change Will Create a More Resilient Society

Addressing the racial aspects of climate change is not just a matter of justice; it is a strategic imperative supported by data and statistics. By recognizing and prioritizing the vulnerabilities and challenges that marginalized communities face in the context of climate change, we can create a more resilient and effective response to this global crisis. Here's why a data-driven focus on racial aspects of climate change is crucial for the well-being of society as a whole: **1. The Economic Toll of Climate Change**: Climate change is a costly crisis. One study estimates that extreme weather events alone cost a staggering $16 million per hour in damages.  From 2000 to 2019, the world witnessed over $2.8 trillion in damages attributed to intensified storms, floods, and heatwaves, a financial burden that society bears collectively. **2. Racial Disparities in Economic Impact**: Delving into the economic aspect, the racial disparities are striking. A study identifies a $13 trillion loss

Climate Change Deniers: US vs Europe. Gregory Savioz-Buck, Intern, University of Sherbrooke, Canada.

Since the international community first raised concerns about climate change, there have always been individuals who question the theory. Nevertheless, the tangible effects of climate change are undeniably evident today, exemplified by a summer marked by adverse climate records. Carbon Dioxide in the Atmosphere by hemisphere. Source: NASA.   Interestingly, a segment of people remains skeptical about humanity's role in these frequently devastating alterations. This group of climate skeptics appears to be more vocal in America than in Europe. The reasons behind this discrepancy beg exploration. Is it a matter of greater numbers, or is it simply that their voices carry further? Regardless, in the US, individuals who harbor doubts about human-induced climate change often engage in debates over the relevance of government and organizational efforts to combat climate change. This ongoing discourse significantly impedes progress toward a more sustainable world. In contrast, Europe appears
