Since the 1960's when the civil rights movement was center stage in America and the lives of every African American was at stake, America has struggled, strived and yet failed to bring total equality (which includes the abolishment of racism) to ALL mankind, regardless of their ethnicity, religion and culture.  And although there has been some progress, there has also been regress in the area of racism.  Thus the Trayvon Martin case.  Some (Geraldo Rivera) are argruing that perception vs. acceptance (of who he is...a human being), had just as much to do with the death of young Trayvon as did racism.  That if Trayvon looked and dressed a certain way in a certain neighborhood, he may still be alive.  What do you think?

Join me and my guest host tonight for another thought provoking conversation.

In addition, we will have Dr. Awoniyi-Nora for our "What's Up Doc?" segment.

So call a friend or two and join in the conversation by dialing 917-889-3810 Wednesdy@9 PM EST for Life Happens: So what are you going to do about it? Can't wait to hear from you!
