Susan Burton, noted South Los Angeles Community Activist, and other Community Activists will participate in a dialogue about the state of our communities, today. The topic is Proposition 47! Very important to our incarcerated neighbors! It is on the November ballot. Tune in to hear What Proposition 47 is about. Call in. Comment. This is YOUR SHOW!! Your opportunity to speak YOUR MIND!
According to a recent newspaper article,
"I would also call your attention to the recent landmark study requested by Placer County. The study, after surveying its justice system, recommended a reduction of jail admissions, and an increase in drug detoxification and mental health treatment services coupled with an expansion of other rehabilitation services.
There is widespread support for Prop 47 from a diverse range of law enforcement, public safety, judicial and elected public officials as well as the faith based community — see www.safety and schools.com.
“In the spirit of advocating for an informed public, I encourage you to carefully assess the arguments offered by the bill’s opponents. To my mind, they are driven by a punishment first ideology, rather than any fact-based assessment.” Whyman (Oct., 2014)

Is staying together for the sake of the kids always a good thing or is it healthier sometimes to just separate until things get better for everyone?

First and foremost, I was (and still am, though my sons are full-grown adults) a single mother; so I have more than an outsider’s “baby mama histrionic drama” glance into the facts. I’m not all about the mainstream media’s histrionics that come out of the conservative/corporate mindset about single Black motherhood. I was/am a single mother who was, at one time–a couple of times really–married. I finally figured out that I could truly “do bad all by myself.”
While it is almost never a good (great?) idea to raise children alone, as it does provide many systemic problems that end up affecting children for the rest of their lives, I was raised in a household where my father was absent — and needed to be. I later found out, as an adult, why my mother left my dad; and frankly, God rest her soul, I’m glad she did.
That said, I repeat: A child should be raised by both parents, whenever and wherever possible.
However, I think I (and many of my Black single mother constituents) are about fed up with watching Black women being targeted and singled out for media abuse, as if single mothers of other races don’t have the same -nearly the ‘exact’ same- issues. In that sense alone, our “Black Leaders” have failed us all.
