EBT Cards – Police Killing Whites? – Fallacy Of Black On Black Crime?
The Earl Hall Show – Show Notes
EBT Cards And SNAP
There are some things that I am just unsure of when it comes to welfare and EBT card benefits in general. I know that with any system you have people that will abuse it. That is going to happen no matter what kind of stipulations you put into place.
I do often wonder about how people actually feel about being on government assistance. Most of what we hear in the media is in regards to the abusers. We rarely hear about the folks that actually need it and use it appropriately.
I feel that this is simply another propaganda tool that many use to make people believe that everyone on government assistance is just lazy. I do not for one second believe this. People that are using EBT cards or SNAP because of job loss due to the bad economy surely find it offensive the way many talk about people in their situation. They are not the problem.
However many of us have been in the grocery store and witnessed people selling food stamps for cash. At least here in Milwaukee it is seen everyday. These types of misuses of our tax dollars enrage us all.
Police Killing Whites
I’m trying to remember any hoopla over a police officer killing a white man and people saying there was something wrong with that. Of course this does not sell news papers or get on FOX. The sexy and provocative thing seemingly is a white cop killing a black man. The fact of the matter is (according to an article from politifact.com) Police kill more whites than blacks.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention keeps data on fatal injuries from 1999 to 2011 and one category is homicides by legal intervention. The term “legal intervention” covers any situation when a person dies at the hands of anyone authorized to use deadly force in the line of duty.
Over the span of more than a decade, 2,151 whites died by being shot by police compared to 1,130 blacks. In that respe
Government workers, elected, appointed or hired are to provide services to we the people. We the people of the United States of America in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common Defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. Elected officials are Government workers who come from amongst us.Their purpose seem to be only to get paychecks. They talk and act on the goods of Business owners while treading on the welfare and liberty of we the people. Over $3trillions in tax revenue for 2014 is more than enough for congress and senate to pass jobs to get America to a full workforce. America's 50million businesses, 10% of which are foreign owned, should hire 50 million people in 30days. Working class, be wise. Consider the ant! Unite. Speak as one. Jobless numbers 5.5% smacks of racism. Blacks-10.5%. Latinos 6.6%. Whites 4.7%. Asians 4.0%.
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?

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
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.

Unfunny YO Money with "Funny Money" !
The Greys will allow Muslims to develop. Then, when they have reached a sufficient technological level to serve as slaves, they will be destroyed with the rest of the human race who are expendable, only some will be spared as a “small breeding population” for backup human genes.
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?

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?
