June : Employment and Blacks in the Workplace
According to the Washington Post since the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) started reporting unemployment by race over 42 years ago, blacks have always been unemployed at a higher rate than whites. According to the August 2014 BLS unemployment number, blacks had an unemployment rate of 11.4% which is twice that of whites (5.3%).
According to Diversity Inc. There are six Black CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, accounting for 1.2% of all Fortune 500 CEOs.
June is focused on employment as well as diversity in the workplace. It is well known that diversity is lacking at the top of many of the companies we support. We are not asking for positions, we are saying where are the mentors who are already there and how can we craft more leaders? Many of us have experienced working twice as hard to still be in the same position and know the feeling of training folks who then become our boss. It is not okay that a company has 30% of its employees who are minorities and less than 10% in upper management. We have to call diversity in the workplace to carpet and challenge companies to do better. Employment also means lowering the unemployment rate, by ensuring that individuals in our neighborhoods know how to fill out an application, have interview skills, and know the simple basics of searching for a job. These are simple steps we all can take.

Join us at 8pm. Live call in (347)989-0180. We can change the way we think with information, knowledge, wisdom and understanding!
Black Americans have been through a lot in this nation. We are seeing movements gaining ground but the one thing they are lacking is a plan. This plan must be something we can get behind. Complaining isn't going to fix our issues at all. Something tangible that we can get behind to change laws is the way to go.
Join us Tuesday at 10 am, Call 3479890180

Today too many Black American communities have transformed “hand-out/hand-up programs” into a pathologic syndrome intertwined with an Entitlement Mentality, often coupled with ignorance, laziness, and arrogance. “Entitlement” in today’s context is a government program guaranteeing access to benefits by members of a specific group and based on established legislation. A "right" or entitlement associated with a moral or social principle provisioned in accordance with a legal framework of society based in concepts of social equality. In the United States, an entitlement program is a type of "government program that provides individuals with personal financial benefits, goods and services to which an indefinite number of potential beneficiaries meet eligibility conditions that are specified by the standing law that authorizes the program.
These programs include Social Security and Medicare and most Veterans’ Administration programs, federal employee and military retirement plans, unemployment compensation, food stamps and agricultural price support programs. A major debated difference is that the “food stamps and agricultural subsidy” programs are not programs in which the recipient contributed anything to receive. In recent years, benefits, like those of the food stamps program which people become eligible to receive without paying into a system are under “fire” and appear to be a contributing factor to Black American inertia.
I am aware of those who choose a low socio-economic existence as a lifestyle choice where the government takes care of them and tell them what to do and thereby submit willingly to an “enslaved” existence. To maintain a belief that you are owed something and entitled to things when you are doing nothing to help yourself is absurd.
Whether it’s being targeted by overzealous, racist police officers, discriminatory supervisors in the workplace, ignorant "niggas" looking to rob/kill us in the streets, white women clutching their purses when passing by, or our ancestors being kidnapped, lynched and enslaved…Historically, black men have always had to work twice as hard to get just as far as other races. To hear a rebroadcast of our special on ""Being a BLACK Man in WHITE America", tune into “The Dedan Tolbert Show” TONIGHT at 9:00pm EST by calling 646 200 0366 or listen online worldwide at www.dedantolbertshow.com. “Real Radio that Matters”.
Bill has been rather vocal related to Black people in america and what ails us, he has been held up by white america for the things he has said, denigrating and putting down the people who supported him to the place he sits. Still He is a Black man, does he not deserve our support?
Why suddenly the witch hunt, why has white america chosen THIS time to bring this forward, is it Distraction from the Mike Brown case??
How about the OJs and Bill Cosbys that have seemingly abandon their own once they sat at the table of whites, do these people still deserve our support or do we let them get chewed up by the master they snuggled beneath?
