This month, The Clarkie-Connection turns a long-awaited focus towards the state of the African-American family, specifically, with respect to education, incarceration, empowerment and several other potent issues.  Of course, there will be significant time spent discussing violence against black youth, in particular, the Michael Brown story and all that has transpired in the weeks since he was shot and killed by a police officer in St. Louis.  It seems like unarmed young, African-American men are being systematically gunned down by Caucasian police officers at an alarming rate - one study reveals that a black youth is killed every 28hrs!.  Without allowing this disturbing trend to adversely inform the nation's perceptions of African-American youth, or the good police officers we rely on for peace and protection, it would appear that - at the very least - a sober conversation is warranted to dissect and discuss the issues within, behind, and surrounding this trend.  Join the Clarkie-Connection and chime in with your thoughts and feelings on the issue which will eventually affect every African-American family, sooner or later, in either its prevention or cure!  ....This is what great talk-radio is meant to be about!~
