Well, I thought I would never be a part of the blogosphere, but at
8:00 on a Sunday morning, I find myself powerless to its charms! Before
I get into what it is that I have to say, I personally want to thank
Kehgan McCalister for all of his dedication to the radio show, his
insight on Tumblr, and his passion to live out his dreams. Thanks for
all that you do Kehgan! This is the last thing I’ll say about Kehgan:
Read his blog posts, there’s a lot of hard hitting opinion news in
Okay, I’ll stop talking about Kehgan…No, the answer is no. We are
NOT dating. I just like everything he does. Fine, I promise I’ll stop
for real this time!!! What I really wanted to talk to you about was the
issue that arose from out of our second radio broadcast. Let me set
the stage for you if I could. With two minutes to go, we decided that it
would be a good idea to talk about a 250 year problem in this nation
and then solve it in the last two minutes of our show. You guessed it,
the issue was race. I personally had underestimated those two precious
words that can get you out of almost anything; “Good Intentions.” So, I
would like to finish talking to you about that subject, and I would
love some dialogue on our tumblr page about this too.
From the November 9th show, it seems to end like a train
that has derailed off of the tracks. What we were trying to say is;
affirmative action as it stands in society today is wrong. John Stossel
of Fox News recently had a bake sale on race. For a pastry, John
Stossel priced every race at a different pay scale. Basically Asians
& Caucasians had to pay more, and Blacks & Latinos paid much
less. What John was trying to socially convey, was that affirmative
action in this country isn’t applicable anymore. Personally, I don’t
think it ever was, but in today’s society, we definitely don’t need to
have that type of mentality. What ever happened to basing someone’s job
performance on their merits alone? We must keep the “I Have a Dream”
speech by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. fresh in our minds. One day, we
will look to the content of a person’s character and not to the color of
their skin. If we are to treat one another as equals, we must not bow
to this type of behavior that only restrains us and keeps us held
hostage in our own guilt. Please hear me, if any of you reading this
feels oppressed by actions of the past done to you or your present
family, this country is sorry. With that said, there is a time to mourn
and a time to heal, and this nation’s time to heal is now. America is
the home of the brave and a beacon of freedom, and being a citizen here
grants you all of the aspirations, dreams, and hopes that any other
person strives for, no matter what color, handicap, race, religion, or
creed you have come from. Thanks for reading this humble blog post. I
only wish that one day soon we will find it in ourselves to forgive one
another and once and for all, to wipe the guilt that is this country’s
