    Everyday more and more basic freedoms and good American jobs are being removed from America. The very best cure is to completely decapitate the WZs from their source of FIAT Money-power by “nationalizing” the Federal Reserve System, seizing all its assets, arresting all of its Directors, trying them for RICO Financial Fraud, Sedition and Treason.

    The Father Factor - Vincent Ellis White

    in Lifestyle

    According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 24 million children in America - 1-3 live in biological father-absent homes. Nine in ten Americans agree this is a crisis. Due to the "father factor", affecting most of the social issues in America today-from police brutality, to youth delinquency and academic failures-breakdowns in the system have become all too prevalent. This underscores the fact that children with involved fathers do better across every statistic on child well-being than their peers in father-absent homes. A stable at-home dad was something yearned for by author/advocate Vincent Ellis White when he was a kid. Seeing how it led to rage and rebellion in his own life, he now focuses on mentoring, healthy family advocacy, & strengthening families by way of creating awareness and open dialogue to help address similar problems faced by youths dealing with the father factor.


    He is joining us to discuss his book titled "Finding Chris My Father."  (347) 637-2319 and press 1.

    Rebuilding the African Community: Marriage

    in Culture

    The African American community has the lowest marriage rate in America and the highest out of wedlock childbirth rate.  But on top of these depressing numbers, the Census Bureau figures show that while everyone else's divorce rate went down, Black women between the ages of 50-59 were more likely to divorce.  Our divorce rate went up to 48%.  In addition, Black woman have the highest chance of their first marriage ending within 10 years, at 47%.  “Marriage and Divorce in the African-American Community” - REAL-PIC TV Network


     In 1890, 80% of African American households were comprised of two parents. One hundred years later, only 40% of African-American children live in married-couple households.


    Is marriage a foundation stone in the rebuilding of the African community?  What are we missing? Why we need to revive marriage tradition.


    We'll talk about it.
