    STOP THE KILLING, START THE BUILDING

    in Current Events

    I don’t condone the violence on our streets or in our homes or work places. I believe that anyone that commits a violent act against another except in saving his own life or the life of someone else, should be punished under the laws of their country. Violence in the Black community is the result of being put in a controlled environment and all necessities taken away and we are forced to survive.  Anger builds up as we are denied real jobs that can pay for food, clothing, shelter, and recreation.  This feeling of hopelessness is passed down to the younger generations.  Alcohol and drugs are introduced as a anesthesia to numb the effects of the reality of their present situation of being homeless, no money, no food, but everyone can put on for a cheap drink or a bag of reggie (weed).  Parents and children smoking and drinking alcohol creates a powder keg with a short fuse.  Generic food and medicine are introduced into this controlled environment and we become #1 in all health issues.  Then you flood the community with quick kill automatic weapons of mass destruction and make the readily accessible.  Distrust is at an all-time high.  You can’t trust the doctor, the police, politicians, justice system or each other.  You can’t relate to most of them because they don’t look like you and they can’t begin to image what you are going through.  and if they did look like you, you won’t trust them. Frustration, hopelessness, and fear mounts.....................

    The Rules For US Versus The Rules For Them Part II

    in Pop Culture

    This episode in the 2nd part of " The Rules for US versus the Rules for Them" episode.  In the previous episode I discussed how non-minority athletes and entertainers can do certain things or act a certain way , but if an athlete or entertainer who is a minority does those same things and act in the same way; there actions are then scrutinized by the media and then NOT accepted by the public once the media has molded the situation. Now, with the Super bowl being just a few days away there is a polarizing subplot in the air.  Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton has caught a lot of backlash from the media because of his end zone dances and having fun while winning games, but it is perfectly acceptable for Aaron Rodgers to have an end zone celebration, acceptable for Peyton to curse out Julius Thomas on the field during the 2014 AFC Chaampionship game, or even acceptable for Tom Brady to talk trash on the field while being mic'd up. Cam is viewed as arrogant, but Manning, Rodgers, and Brady are firey competitors.  Cam is being labled as "the villan" going into Super Bowl 50 because most media outlets want Peyton Manning to go out on top by winning his last appearance in the Super Bowl.  Now, the media is putting Cam in a no win situation with the public. If Cam and the Panthers beat Peyton and the Broncos, the he will be "the villan", but if Peyton wins it, Peyton will be branded as one of the greatest QBs of all times and people will say Cam choked. Is that fair? No, but the media has the power to do that. Peyton is still one of the greatest of all-time even without a win the Super Bowl. Why does the public NOT see that?  The media molds the public's perception. Call In at 323.417.6807 with questions.

    Real & Raw "No Holds Barred Adult Conversation" “Is Marriage Killing Sex?”

    in Relationships

    Career stress, financial pressure, children.  The routine that can creep in with respect to married life.  


    Let's ask ourselves the question:  “Is marriage killing good sex?”


     


    “Black Women, White Women.”


    Two different races, two different sets of experiences and, therefore, two different behaviors concerning relationships.  


    Is this true, though?  Are there some characteristics common to ALL women, regardless of race?  


    The bottom line: Do ALL women act the same?  Let’s talk about it! 


    Ladies have you ever wondered what men really think?


    Have you ever tried to tap into the mind of a man on subjects of love, relationships or life itself?


    What drives a man wild?


    Is the sex good enough?


    Have you been in the relationship too long?


    Can a man stay faithful?


    Why would a man cheat with a woman less attractive?


    What drives a man up the wall?


    What makes a man commit to a woman?


    What can a woman do to make sex better?


    When do men know they are in love?


    Those questions a lot more on Real & Raw
