Brand New Year, Same Old Problems. 2015 may be here, but the old problems of 2014, 2013, and further back didn't just go away. Is there a war on black men from the police? Are police departments too militarized? Do #HandsUpDontShoot and #BlackLivesMatter pertain to abortion and gangbanging? And do we need new views on church and state? Come inside The Barbershop! Let's discuss it!

Mr. Pearson is the President of Inner City Evangelical (ICE) ministries. Delivered from a life of promiscuity and worldliness, he is a minister, an emcee, a writer and a self-proclaimed urban commentator from South Central Los Angeles. He seeks to bring orthodox theology and conservative politics to the inner city. Jae Iglesia--aka Youn9-Fr3sh, a.k.a. Johnnie-5 the producer--is the Vice President of ICE Ministries. A former Compton gangbanger who dabbled in the occult, he is a devoted minister of Jesus Christ, one dedicated to revealing the Gospel to people in the inner city, to people from less than stellar backgrounds, and particularly to those within the film and music industry. ICE Ministries is an organization intent on bringing Christian apologetics to the inner cities; for evangelism and edification, for defense and definition. The Barbershop is the radio extension of ICE; a media outlet to discuss theology, politics, Black culture, and pop culture in a relaxed, conversational, and relatively non-confrontational setting.
