Slavery exists where a person is in bondage to something and cannot express free choice.
Drug and alcohol addicts know their habit is potentially fatal, yet they reach for the next hit. Those who sell this stuff are willing to give free samples and create the environment to trap those whose goal is an unreal flight of fantasy, a trip to the pain-free stratosphere. Play in that stratosphere long enough, and the strongest person will slip into the zone of slavery, and then the reality sets in, but escape is almost impossible.
Some hate their jobs yet are just as addicted to the paycheck, and stay for their next hit. That next pay-date, when for maybe 24 hours, all is well with the world. Too often, like the drug and alcohol high, this joy is also very temporary and the pain rush returns creating a cycle where you hang in there for the next payday, anticipating the temporary escape from the pain. This show is not for those who love their jobs, or for those who already know the freedom of doing what you love no matter how well, or how poorly it pays. This show is for those who love their paycheck, and hate their jobs.
There is a way to create your escape one dollar at a time. Few will take this road, because as much as the idea of freedom is appealing, the golden handcuffs of the paycheck yanks them back in fear. The painful known seems easier than the unknown path to freedom. Believing the road exists, that you can walk it, and read the destination requires a faith that has been stripped away the longer the paycheck golden handcuffs are on. Yet, some do take the first step, then the second, and the third. Learn How.

"It was the custom in the State of Maryland to require the free colored people to have what were called free papers. These instruments they were required to renew very often, and by charging a fee for this writing, considerable sums from time to time were collected by the State. In these papers the name, age, color, height, and form of the freeman were described, together with any scars or other marks upon his person which could assist in his identification. This device in some measure defeated itself-since more than one man could be found to answer the same general description. Hence many slaves could escape by personating the owner of one set of papers; and this was often done as follows: A slave, nearly or sufficiently answering the description set forth in the papers, would borrow or hire them them till by means of them he could escape to a free State, and then, by mail or otherwise, would return them to the owner. The operation was a hazardous one for the lender as well as for the borrower. A failure on the part of the fugitive to send back the papers would imperil his benefactor, and the discovery of the papers in possession of the wrong man would imperil both the fugitive and his friend."

Most of us believe that we would never succumb to domestc abuse. "I would be out of there at the first sign," you might say. But this might not be true. What if domestic abuse is evolutionary, a slow progression from good to bad to worse and finally undeniably unbearable. What if the memory of better days gives great hope despite the ocassional infractions. What if the perpetrator is charming, sorrowful, and powerful? What if one's upbringing is so powerful that it defies anything other than working it out and remaining faithful. Join our speaker Saundra (last name withheld) and me for part 1" Mind Over Matter" on the Rise Above Broadcast on Thursday, December 4 at 1 p.m. to better understand the progression of abuse.
On Christmas Eve 1855, Barnaby Grigsby and his wife Mary Elizabeth, took the slaver's best team of horses and his carriage, packed it with knives and guns, and fled slavery. Grigsby and Elizabeth were married.

Author Gary Rodriguez will be my guest on Sunday, Dec. 14th. We'll be chatting about his new book, Escape Through the Wilderness.
About the book:
Escape Through The Wilderness is a timely reminder that children's adventure stories remain ever popular and this is one that deserves to grab the spotlight. A full on attention grabber from the start, Rodriguez spins his debut in endearing prose, his plot exciting, inventive and wholly convincing in its implementation, with plenty of unpredicted twists and turns along the way. Undeniably, a story about friendship, his young protagonists are ably observed with well-crafted personas which allow room for growth as their peril evolves. It’s a splendid telling that will certainly engage the imaginations of his young readers. There’s suspense, plenty of tension and gratifyingly dark overtures which children will lap up, but it never feels rushed with every chapter leaving the reader hungry for more. On cursory reflection it is simply a cracking story, but the thematic undertones reflect the loss of innocence and the fundamental issue of survival which would be invaluable for parent-child discussion.

The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness a book by Michelle Alexander a civil rights litigator and legal scholar, published in 2010(The New Press). The book deals with race-related and social, political, and legal phenomena in the United States and attempts to apply the term 'The New Jim Crow' to the situation of African Americans in the contemporary United States. The name derives from the original Jim Crow laws that prevailed in the states of the former Confederacy of the U.S. through the 1960s. This book was on The New York Times Best Seller List ten consecutive months, and philosopherCornel West has called it a "secular bible for a new social movement in early twenty-first-century America." In the book Alexander deals primarily with the issue of the current mass levels of incarceration in the United States (with 5%of the world's population, U.S. incarcerates 25%of the world's prisoners) and what she perceives as societal repression of AfricanAmerican men and, to a lesser degree, Latino men. She discusses the social consequences of various policies for people of color, as well as for the US population as a whole. According to Alexander, the majority of black men in large American cities are "warehoused in prisons," their labor no longer needed in the globalized economy. Alexander maintains that many young black men, once they are labeled as "felons," become trapped in a second-class status that they find difficult to escape. The conventional point of view holds that discrimination has mostly ended with the Civil rights movement reforms of 1960s. Alexander claims the U.S. criminal justice system uses the “War on Drugs” as a primary tool for enforcing traditional, as well as new, modes of discrimination and repression.
