America has advanced in many ways concerning the issue of race. Slavery was a legal institution that America must continue to recognize. Slavery was abolished in America but the issue of race never went away. The civil rights movement sought to bring a end to discrimination and equality. The movement had great success but many lives were lost. The presidency of Barack Obama is something many in this country black or white thought would never happen. Many felt racism was over with once he stepped in office. I wish that were the case but racism have gotten worse in 2014. We are seeing things happen today that we thought we got past. We seen the response to George Zimmerman and how it tore the country apart. The shooting of Mike Brown by Darren Wilson have created another divide. Police are doing clearly racist acts and when blacks speak up it's a problem. Why can't we move past racism? We have so many issues to deal with as a people yet the problems of the 1800's won't go away.

Environmental Awareness: Plastic Pollution in Australia with Elizabeth Beaumont
Elizabeth has worked as a Liver Intensive Care Nurse and has returned to her studies, this time in the area of Sustainability at University of Sunshine Coast, Queensland Australia. During a merging of two assignments that concerned water extraction for the bottled water industry and the ingestment of plastics by sea mammals and birds she decided to approach the senior management of the university and make formal presentations to phase out and subsequently ban the sale of water housed in Polyethylene terephthalate at the University. She was successful making her uni the 1st in Queensland and only the 2nd in Australia to ban the sale of water in P.E .T. This will result in a massive reduction of carbon emissions. The university has installed 3 ProAcqua machines the greatest innovation of water vends that ever have been invented. In 2014 she travelled to Cambodia with the University and was asked by the Minister of Tourism to advise on plastic pollution there. Her work to communicate the dangers of this issue has been enhanced by her steady efforts to connect with other interested people including, experts in the broad field of plastic pollution. She actively picks up plastic pollution and volunteers for the Two Hand Project and applauds anyone who picks up plastics. She has for 30 years actively practiced Nichiren Buddhism. Together with her family, Elizabeth enjoys life on a Land for Wildlife property where marsupials, birds and aquatic life live freely in the Hinterland of South East Queensland.

On this episode of the ::ANSWERS:: show, we discuss "Racism in the Media."
The media plays a critical role as a major institution in society. Primarily speaking, their goal is to provide the masses with definitions about who we are as a people while reinforcing our values and norms. They give us concrete examples of what happens to those who transgress these norms; and most importantly, they perpetuate certain ways of seeing the world and peoples within that world. This immeasurable amount of power to shape how we think is both a gift and most certainly a curse.
The media is arguably responsible for the negative image it portrays of people of color. Have you ever noticed how the media portrays a person of color convicted of a crime versus a white person? Well, we have and we're going to talk about it.
