    Black Lives Matter...Does It Really Matter To Blacks?

    in Current Events

    Everyday we read or see in our cities and towns people protesting because a Black Life has been taken by a non-Black.

    George Zimmerman recently stated that he had no regrets for killing a young black male. Is is because he is a racist or he has adopted the mind set of blacks, that Black Lives Don't Matter?

    We have been up and arms over the murders of blacks by non-blacks.

    The bigger issue is when we said "Black Lives Matters"; the question is, does Black Lives Matter to Blacks?

    Tune in as Cruz and his special guest Author Karen Duffie, whose son was murdered by another person of color. Black on Black crime is out of control problem in Black America.

    Are Blacks Hypocrites? Does Black Lives Matter To Blacks?

    Is slavery the blame, for the issues that Blacks face TODAY?

    in Education

    Often times I hear that Black people(specifically Black Americans/African-Americans) continues to suffer TODAY, because we don't know our culture, being that everything was stripped away from us during slavery. I also hear that slavery CURRENTLY, plays a part in Black men and women socially and economically, I.E. marriage, parenting, unity, support of each other etc. Although slavery(physical sense) has officially been abolished since roughly 1865, do you think it's possible for it to be having an impact?  If so, how? 


    This thinking is interesting because, post-slavery has been some of the most prominent times for Blacks. Families were together, Black businesses were booming, and they were supported by other Blacks, HBCU's were being founded, musical content was more uplifting and empowering, organizations like The Civil Rights, The NAACP, Black Panthers, Women's Suffrage Group etc, were formed. If slavery has that much of an impact on our social and economic status TODAY, why didn't it affect the people of the early 1900's-mid 1900's in the same way?

    BLACKOUT MEDIA CHANGING THE NARRATIVE OF BLACKS IN THE MEDIA

    in Self Help

    Butterfly Evolution is turning the mic over to Amber Ivy and Jeremy Johnson/Blackout Media.  Blackout Media reports...


    According to the New Pittsburgh Courier and Free Press, there were some 18 black-owned stations in 2006, only 1.3% of all TV stations. In 2012 that number dropped to 5 and by 2013 it was zero due to buyouts by larger companies.


    It is painful to see how our black brothers and sisters are portrayed on the news, television, and even movies. In 2015, directors continue to deal with systematic issues that cause black films with good storylines to not get funded because there is not a market for "good black films".


    We have a trillion dollar buying power, so guess what WE are the market FOR?  Join us as we discuss blacks in media and changing the narrative.  We will also discuss the Black America 2.0 campaign to blackout media starting in May.  Any media that continuously shows blacks in less than desirable light, we encourage you to stop watching. Yes to include, Hip Hop and Reality TV.  


    Join Butterfly Evolution in welcoming Blackout Media, Host, Tammy Gaitor and Rodney Jordan are looking forward to this discussion. Listen/comment at 818-691-7406 or register as a follower of the show in order to join the live chat.  www.blogtalkradio.com/butterflyevolution.org

  • Blacks & The Cops

    in Politics

    America is a funny land.


    Not funny as in "ha ha," but funny as in strange.


    So strange that even though cops have historically been at odds with Blacks, people try to pretend that there is something else going on in a so-called justice system that sometimes seems like it persecutes just us.


    But anyone who has lived in a poor neighborhood with their eyes and mind open realizes that the "Thin Blue Line," is typically erected between the "haves" and the "have nots," frequently doling out abuse to the "have nots."


    And, the "have nots" don’t always get their day in court when there is abuse, which is why periodically, the people speak in the loudest voice possible—riots.


    Ferguson spoke in that loud voice and now, Baltimore is speaking as well.


    Perhaps no city has the reputation for rioting that Los Angeles has earned. 


    This April 29, marked the 23rd anniversary of the notorious LA Riots.


    And it is business as usual, from Rodney King to Micheal Brown and from Eric Garner to Freddy Gray, countless Black men and women in between, as well as throughout American history. 


    Listen to The Bridge Radio This Sunday at 4pm Pacific as we discuss the future of African Americans.

    Back to What Good Old Days for Blacks?

    in Politics

    In the past, business owners have provided jobs and everyone was working. Why can't government let us get back to life like it was then? Why don't government just get out of the way and let business owners do what they  want? What time period was it when everyone in America who wanted a job, had a job and could purchase all the things they needed? Never ever has there been such a time. I worked over 40 years and I should have accomplished as much as my White counter part but I did not. Why not? Institutional racism. It is a part of life in America. It became part of life when slavery was abolished. Institutional racism was/is White men rebellious act toward government taking away their property, known as slaves. White men decided to not pay people wages whose labor they had gotten for free. And so institutional racism which begin in 1865 is backed up today by jobs numbers for February 2015.  Whites 4.7%. Latinos 6.6%. Blacks 10.5%. Oh and by the way. White men got paid by governement to give up their property, known today as Black people and government reneged on 40 acres and a mule the Black people.

    The State of Black America: Segregation or Integration,which is best for Blacks?

    in Education

    There has been many discussions about whether or not integration helped or hurt Blacks. There are many compelling arguments on both sides of this discussion. I'd like to open up the dialogue for different perspectives. Do you want your kids in an all Black/White school system? Do you think integration was a tactic from Caucasains to benefit them? Were Blacks better or worse, OVERALL, when we were segregated?


    When having this discussing, there are often two recurring points that are made. When people speak about the Pros, they often point out: Better job and educational opportunities. When they speak about the Cons, they often point out the lost of Black family unity. Which side are you on?
