Chilufya Tayali , Why corruption is not a "sexy" subject in Africa.

In 1970, 70.3% of African-Americans between the ages of 20 and 54 were married. In 2008, it was less than 39.6%, according to the National Center on African American Marriages and Parenting. In 1960, 22% of African-American kids grew up in single-parent homes. As of 2013, 55% grew up without two parents. The breakdown of the black family is even greater than before. Join us in discussing African American Culture and how families have been impacted.
In his 1903 book "The Souls of Black Folk", W.E.B. Dubois introduced the concept of double conciousness. It's the idea that blacks find it difficult to find identity in a majority white world. This refrain is revisited in the Black Lives Matter movement today. This is even more apparent in black churches where theologies are conflicting with praxis on contemporary issues. How can the black clergy and leadership address this double conciousness while empowering believers to be "one body with many members?" Join Pastor Neal for this and other topics of the day.
Rachel Dolezal of the NAACP and the issue of racial identity, Jeb Bush enters the race for the Repubican nomination, escaped convicts and the prison worker who helped them escape, Hillary's speech draws thousands, and more topics to be discussed. See you @ 6 PM Central

#BLACKLIVESMATTER is and has been adopted as an rallying cry for some time now, especially when situations have occurred that have made an impact on black lives, society, and culture as a whole, especially when it's been afflicted upon by non-blacks. Situations that've been in the mainstream for quite some time now has actually warranted said rallying cry, but I'm talking about taking it back to EVERYHOOD U.S.A. Does #BLACKLIVESMATTER hold the same fervor and ferocity, when we as blacks, committ these same atrocities on OURSELVES??? YES, I'm totally for JUSTICE being sought for and gained for the Trayvon Martins, Michael Browns, Eric Garners, Tamir Rices, Eric Harris', Walter Scotts, Freddie Grays, Charleston Nine, Sandra Bland, and now Samuel DuBose. But. I still want the same JUSTICE for when Ray Ray kills Pookie in the hood. The bottom line is that we don't make #BLACKLIVESMATTER a MOMENT, but an actual MOVEMENT!!!!
