Is That Discrimination again? What is the current tide of discrimination. Who are winners and losers of discrimination? Does our culture foster discrimination. Is that a quality that is learned and past down from generation to generation. How does today's generation address discrimination. How much progress have we made in the area of discrimination. Even though we have advanced, why does discrimination rears its head with progress. What role does the government play in fostering discrimination? How do we rid of ourselves of discrimination?
In the wake of the Indiana RFRA flap and the Memories Pizza situation that followed, I wanted to revisit some stories this week that again focus on a class of people who are truly being discriminated against for who they are in this country. Those people are the Christians in this country who stand on their principles of faith. Today I wanted to talk about what's going on with a Christian college and a Massachusetts school district. I also wanted to discuss a bakery with a different slant on it in Colorado. And there's a couple of articles again concerning the fallout of the the Indiana RFRA battle that I'll share as well.
That's at 4:30 Eastern time and archived after that.
Tune in to Phase 2 Radio interviews of exclusive coverage On Tuesday March 31, more than 200 activists, faith leaders, civil rights leaders and allies joined together at the Central Presbyterian Church across from the Capitol to rally against RFRA. We marched from their to the Capitol steps to deliver messgages to the elected officials of Georgia.Georgia will not stand for an Indiana-style “license to discriminate.” Phase 2 Radio Executive producer Kareema Ali-Bowens participated in the march. State Troopers demanded we move off the sidewalks , however all the marchers moved over chanted and carried signs that read No Discrimination In Georgia. The measure, SB 129, stalled when anti-discrimination language was added to it. But the critics fear that it could still pass the state legislature by Midnight Thursday, the end of the 2015 session. However
Those against it believe it would allow for discrimination against gays, lesbians, and other groups, including African Americans.
The term discrimination is too often associated with racism versus disability. In addition, racism and discrimination are frequently related in the U.S. media to the victimization of African-Americans and other Non-White groups by White Americans. As a result, African-American students with mental/learning or physical disabilities are often overlooked as they face the challenges of higher education and workforce success. Dr. Applewhite is joined by Special Guest Professor Kelmer Muhammad (Educator, Entrepreneur, Author) to discuss discrimination and realistic solutions. This is a previous broadcast aired on 11-16-13 as “Students Discuss Reality of Discrimination We appreciate your one time or monthly donation of at least $5 or more to continue our radio broadcasts and help our students and Veterans with disabilities, in reaching their education and workforce goals?

Join us today on Women Leading the Way Radio as Cecile Bereal your host of Serving Up Diversity, interviews Chris Olmsted, Shareholder/Employment Law and Litigation at Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, PC.
Today we will ask Chris about employment discrimination and harassment. Currently, California employers with 50 or more employers are required to provide harassment prevention training to supervisors. Under this new law, this training must also include training and education on the prevention of ‘abusive conduct’ or bullying.
Mr. Olmsted regularly consults with clients regarding employment law compliance, and also provides training to management and staff, as well as other attorneys.

Has CEMEX SAB de CV (CEMEX ADR) enaged in REVERSE DISCRIMINATION? It appears that CEMEX has a double standard policy, which allows for minorities with criminal convictions to gain, maintain and retain employment at its US operations while other groups are denied employment. According to CEMEX's own company policy, they have a zero tolerance for drugs and alcohols, yet members of their management team have criminal convictions. As African Americans move for equality, the issue must be address with fairness. The issue of reverse discrimination and double standards in hiring practices has been submitted to President Karl H. Watson, Frank Craddock of Operations and Mike Egan, General Counsel, but to no avail.
Although the list continues to grow of of companies that have thrown their support behind the lgbtq equal rights movement. Still some companies remain steadfast in their desire to maintain the standard, "Keep it to yourself" mentality. DONT ASK DONT TELL yet lives in some circles.
We use this episode to explore the enviroment that forces many to hide who they are for 40 hours (in some cases more) of the week.
Also expecting a guest appearence by my main main Will from Father Teresa's Wine celler and many other stellar projects.
Cop a squat and lets discuss what's T with corparate America!
Voice of Rebellion Radio out of Stay Bold Radio responds to the denial of Al Suarez's membership into the Student Government Association of Ybor campus Hillsborough Community College in Tampa. Al has gone to this College since 2013, and experienced discrimination for this activism. We will go over cases of where students have been suspended, maltreated or discriminated against for their activism. We suspect Dr. Robinson (who's image is shown on the show) campus president is behind the decision inspite of promises by the Dean to Al. Dr. Robinson sent security on Al for showing up to his own radio studios on campus and had him unjustly temporarily suspended for speaking out once on the air and for a College paper article. Al returned and was banned a semester from College media. He still takes part in HCC clubs and committees. Chris Jay the co host in his high school had experienced similar things. We will be accepting callers. We hope to bring awareness and show how to fight such discrimination as our tax dollars pay for these schools that violate our free speech. The program will be 2 hours starting at 8pm eastern.
Monday, February 23rd, Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson allowed a new law to block future anti-discrimination laws (to go into effect 90 days after the legislative session ends later this summer). While the premise of the new law known as SB 202 appears reasonable, in actuality this law allows legal discrimination for all non-protected classes.
In this episode, we hear from three Arkansas residents. Meet once again Scott Wyant, Founder of Straight Talk Arkansas, a website dedicated to Living liberally in the Mid-South.
We'll also hear from Cathey Shoshone and Christina Harrison. Cathey is the Co-Chair and Christina is the Founder of Arkansans For Equality.
Christina Harrison was born and raised in Arkansas. She founded Arkansans for Equality in 2011. As an ally, she had become frustrated with the bigotry she came across towards our fellow Arkansans in the LGBTQ community and wanted to do something to help. She began a ballot initiative to repeal Amendment 83 soon after. Christina is a combat veteran in the Army National Guard, and has just recently returned from a tour in Afghanistan.
Cathey Shoshone, also an ally, was born in Arkansas but has lived in several states around the South. She lives in Arkansas currently, She "liked" the Arkansan for Equality facebook page and volunteered to collect signatures for the ballot initiative. The ballot initiative became obsolete when Cheryl Maples and Jack Wagoner won their case in Judge Piazza's courtroom legalizing same-sex marriage. A federal case has also overthrown Amendment 83 to the Arkansas State Constitution. This decision has been stayed pending an appeal hearing.
