SORT BY Relevancy
The second census of the Israelites is done in this chapter. In verses 64 and 65, it says:
"Not one person on this list had been among those listed in the previous registration taken by Moses and Aaron in the wilderness of Sinai. For the Lord had said of them, "They will all die in the wilderness." Not one of them survived except Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun.
The first census represented a generation that could have gone into the Promised Land but refused to walk in faith. God still accomplished His will but with a whole new generation that had a new mindset.
God is preparing to move His people into the Promised Land, and the first step He takes is to take a census. God organizes the people, which will make it easier for them to gather for battle as well as keep their stay in the wilderness orderly.
Overview of Numbers: At this point it has been about a year since they left Egypt. God's intention is to lead them directly into their land of Promise. But the people rebel and disobey. This book covers 38 years, as the Israelites wander in the wilderness literally to wait until the disobedient generation dies off.

“Mentoring is critical if we intend to address much of the pain, abuse and abandonment that African American males suffer from. While we struggle to find mentors for young African American males, it is equally important to locate the fathers of these young brothers. A young boy’s first mentor should be his father and the other men in his family. Responsible fatherhood must be viewed as a necessary action step to begin the healing process among African American males.”
What can we do?
As I examined this problem and searched for strategies that we could implement, one thing struck me in particular—the reality that approximately 50 percent of black children in the United States live in households without a father figure present (U.S. Census Bureau, 2012). I began to ask myself, Who is going to provide boys with the proper male guidance, direction, leadership, and structure that they desperately need? I want our youth to see adult males who is striving to fulfill their own potential and who is also committed to the growth and development of the younger generation. If our young boys had men in their lives whom they could relate to and identify with, they would look at their education differently and the probability for their success would increase exponentially.
Join Ronald A. Edwards and Don Allen for another episode of The Ron and Don Show. This week both hosts will talk about the killing in Minneapolis as well as what's happening in Ferguson, MO. Tune in at 8:30 p.m. to hear the best in Black Talk Radio on #BlogTalkRadio.
It is unlikely the town of Ferguson, Missouri will change in our lifetimes. The mainstream media has portrayed Ferguson, Missouri as a town of rioter’s and looter dismissing the fact the town of 21,203 (2010 census) is in a crisis. In a report from ArchCity Defenders — a legal group that “works to break the cycle of ‘revolving door justice’ in the St. Louis metropolitan area” — reveals that in 2013, “the Ferguson Municipal Court disposed 24,532 warrants and 12,018 cases, or about 3 warrants and 1.5 cases per household.” In Ferguson, the “majority (67%) of [the city's 21,203] residents are African-American” and “22% of residents live below the poverty level.” Despite Ferguson’s relative poverty, fines and court fees comprise the second largest source of revenue for the city, a total of $2,635,400 [...] According to a court employee, the docket for an average court session may include as many as 1,500 cases. Assuming an 80% conviction rate, the average fine in a case resulting in a guilty verdict would be $275.The local carnage happening over the last month and a half is a direct representation of what being poor, black and broke looks like in a town with no opportunities to rise beyond the mundane.
Welcome to today's show! Alternative media outlets frequently use the term "the collapse" as in "when the collapse happens", or "what will you do during the collapse?" I'll discuss what the term "collapse" means and what kind of collapse can be expected in the U.S. in the near future. I challenge the idea that gold and silver will actually be valuable during a collapse scenario (the reality is that gold and silver might have a chance at being valuable after the collapse as part of a recovery, but that is a slim chance). Food, fuel, clean water, and the other necessities of life will be far more valuable than precious metals that you can't eat or trade ( it might take all your precious metals to buy a little food) during a collapse. The reality is that gold and silver have been manipulated for thousands of years, so why would a gold backed monetary system be any less manipulated than the gold backed systems that were predecesors?
After a collapse, can people expect more of the same? Will another defunct government come into being, or will there be a chance at an SSP? I contend that an SSP can work and can last longer and provide more protections for individual freedom than any government can. Unlike government, an SSP puts all men and women on an equal footing, not favoring one person or group above another. Has the U.S. Constitution failed? I contend that it has failed, and today it is ceremonial in nature only. All three branches of the U.S. Government routinely disregard the U.S. Constitution because it is a failed document having been subverted long ago.
I'll also be taking calls and giving my take on some of the day's news.
Thanks for listening!
Census literally means an official count of the population, which the U.S. Constitution mandates being conducted every ten years. Since 1790, 22 censuses have been taken, and in March 2010, a simple questionnaire will be sent to every household in the United States. The questions ask you to provide information that is accurate for your household, which is completely confidential. The census counts all people living in the United States, regardless of citizenship, race, ethnicity or age. The U.S. Census Bureau cannot share an individual’s answers with anyone, including welfare and immigration.
Tune in as the Sistas chat with Carleton Bluford the filmmaker behind 2%, an upcoming documentary about Utah's Black population. The film seeks to shed light on one of the state’s smallest racial groups. The latest census shows African-Americans make up less than two-percent of Utah’s population. The hope is to find out who makes up this two-percent; where they came from; why they stay in Utah; and to take a look at how we define Blackness in America. Carleton and the film's producer Lonzo Liggins, are not only a part of Utah's racial minority, but also it's religious minority because they are not members of the LDS church Their documentary will feature others who share their experiences as well as the experiences of Black Latter-day Saints. 2% features voices such as former NBA player Thurl Baily, Calvary Baptist Church Pastor France A. Davis and Nadia Crow, Utah's first Black primary weekday day news anchor.
Every ten years the Census Bureau takes a count of the population to verify numbers of people representing the various "races". Based on this count, city maps are drawn with boundaries that supposedly allow each race of people to be properly represented in the government. But are these maps used to empower or disempower the people? Political activist Bruce Crosby explains the power of a city map and how it is tied to the economic well being of a community.
Luenell is a force of nature. This talented comedienne, actress and singer, was born in Tollette, Arkansas, a town whose population barely registers with the U.S. census. At the tender age of 10, she caught the acting bug after seeing the plays South Pacific and Ain’t S’posed to Die a Natural Death. She enrolled in theatre classes at the grade school level and continued to study through college and cut her teeth at the Oakland Ensemble Theatre.Her star continues to rise due to her appearances in television, film and music videos.
Luenell is recognized by both mainstream AND urban sectors of the population. Her two-year tour and DVD appearances in “Katt Williams American Hustle” have created an almost cult-like following.
had an amazing 2012 with appearances in three #1 feature films – “Think Like A Man” with Arielle Kebell and Meagan Good, 3D animated hit “Hotel Transylvania” with Adam Sandler, and “Taken 2″ with Liam Neeson. She also starred in the hilarious comedy “That’s My Boy” with Adam Sandler and Leighton Meester. In 2014, Luenell appeared in Nick Cannon's new movie School Dance where she played hte hilarious role of Bobb'e J Thompson's mother. If you haven't seen the movie, its a MUST SEE! She will have you rolling on the floor with belly-aching laughter. Got a question for Luenell? Call in and ask her anything. But beware! The Millie Jackson of Comedy is back.
The 2010 Census forms are being delivered throughout the country this month. The U.S. Census counts every resident in the United States, and is required by the Constitution to take place every 10 years.
The Census will help communities receive more than $400 billion in federal funds each year, that's why is so important you answer the simple 10 short questions and then mail the form back.
This Sunday, Cynthia will interview different people in the community that will tell us how the results of the Census will influence us all. Don't miss this informative show!
