    The New Jim Crow: Law Illiteracy

    in Real Estate

    The new Jim Crow has nothing to do with "race" or  the "sex" of a person...........the new Jim Crow to a very high degree is "Law Illiteracy". Today on "It's My House" we shall discuss how being illiterate in "basic law" can lead to many problems including incarseration, evictions, forclosure, divorces, etc. etc.


    Education is power and we shall give people the basics on what they need to do to empower themselves to reverse any negative situation that they may be involved in.

    "BIBLICAL ILLITERACY: Why Christian's Don't STUDY the WORD of GOD!"

    in Spirituality

    I realize that this is not going to be a popular topic, however, since I'm only in this to point people to Christ, it doesn't really matter to me how many people don't like it. Biblical Illiteracy is pervasive!


    It is so easy to discern that Christians don't read the Word of God. If they did, we would see a greater manifestation of the Lord Jesus Christ in the earth realm (particularly in the marketplace). Greater wisdom. Greater faith. Greater LOVE!


    We would also see a greater level of spiritual maturity with regard to the management of politics, finances, education, economics, etc. 


    Most importantly, we would see a greater love for mankind in every facet of life. The church would be the leader in the protection of the poor, widows, orphans, prisoners, sick and elderly.

    TONIGHT TUESDAY APRIL 14, 2015 AT 6PM EASTERN TIME. Please join us as we discuss how the current condition of our condition as the Black African Nation is largely based on illiteracy...... Social Illiteracy, Political Illiteracy & Economic Illiteracy.


    What does this mean? What role do we play in the continued targeting and victimization of the Black African community? What does it mean when we say "we need to take our power back"? 


    Please join Queen Tahiyrah & Dr. James Jones as we engage you in looking at the issue of illiteracy and begin to break down possible solutions to this issue. This is PART I...... PART II will be on Friday Night with the Brothers of the Sun, as we engage in Educational Illiteracy. What is missing in our current approach to Education? Getting through the "educational systems" smarter. Raising the bar with our own curriculum, with more than what is on "their" curriculum.

    in Baseball

    Today on "It's My House" we shall do a warm up program that will lead to a discussion on "Sports Politics". The back drop for our talk today has its foundation in the stripping of the Little League Championship from the Jackie Robinson West Little League Baseball Team. Was this situation based on "Sports Law Illiteracy or Racism" ?


    To set the tone for this podcast we shall define the word "racism" and the word "literate".

    Kanye for Prez! - more Climate Change Garbage - Miley Cyrus role model?

    in Pop Culture

    Hr1  Did Kanye West really say he was going to run for president? God help us!


    President Obama doubles-down on the climate change lie while touring Alaska. Does he realize how many global warming predictions have failed over the last 40 years?


    Hr2  Man on the street, Mark Dice, asks people to sign the petition to "support illiteracy." Yep, they're signing it.


    Academics ponder the question... are religions a virus of the mind?


    Los Angeles ICE arrest 244 illegals. MOST already had criminal convictions.


    If we're really going to be compassionate to immigrants, shouldn't we clear the path for those who've been waiting for years and years and years and years... instead of just giving law-breaking illegals the right to stay ahead of those doing the process legally?


    Hr3  Pop culture: Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton, and Kanye West.


    Jesse Watters asks, can white men ever be oppressed? Northeastern University seems to think that's the case.


    Federal judge orders release of information that would tie Obama to IRS scandal. Anyone think that info will ever come out?


    Discussing the racial breakdown in sports.


    Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

    There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.

    Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
