Please join Alfred, Karl, and Kim Friday evening as we discuss a variety of issues and topics.

  • The complexities of being LGBTQ in the black community.
  • Homophobia in the black community.  The black community should NOT bear the burden of being labeled homophobic.  This is primarily a tactic that is being used to divert attention from the systemic racism in the LGBTQ community.  The black community is being scapegoated.
    • There is homophobia in the black religious community that needs to be addressed and called out.
    • There is homophobia in the black secular community that needs to be addressed and called out.
  • Same gender loving athletes should NOT be publicly shamed for being themselves.
  • Critical analysis of "God's Not Dead."
  • Is there any validity in Don Sterling's assessment of wealthy blacks not doing enough for the black community?
    • ""Jews, when they get successful, they will help their people. And some of the African-Americans, maybe I'll get in trouble again, they don't want to help anybody," Sterling told interviewer Anderson Cooper on Monday. "
