    Peonage (The Slavery that never goes away.)

    in Entertainment

    After the U.S. Civil War, the South passed "Black Codes", laws that tried to control freed black slaves. Vagrancy laws were included in these Black Codes. Homeless or even unemployed African Americans who were between jobs, most of whom were former slaves were arrested and fined as vagrants. Usually lacking the resources to pay the fine, the "vagrant" was sent to county labor or hired out to a private employer. The authorities also tried to restrict the movement of freedmen between rural areas and cities, to between towns. Under such laws, local officials arbitrarily arrested tens of thousands of freedmen and charged them with fines and court costs of their cases. White merchants, farmers, and business owners could pay their debts and the prisoner had to work off the debt. Prisoners were leased as laborers to owners and operators of coal mines, lumber camps, brickyards, railroads, quarries, and farm plantations, with the revenues for their labor going to the states. Government officials leased imprisoned blacks and whites to small town entrepreneurs, provincial farmers, and dozens of corporations looking for cheap labor. Their labor was repeatedly bought and sold for decades after the official abolition of American slavery. It seems like the more things change the more they stay the same.

    Mental HEALTH vs. Mental ILLNESS - De-Stigmatizing Mental Wellness

    in Women

    There are many misconceptions about mental health; yet, if someone is diagnosed with cancer, we encourage that person to see an oncologist, or to take powerful drugs like chemotherapy if it might help, and to take time off work or school to let themselves heal. Yet - when it’s an addiction or an eating disorder or some other mental illness – it’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that someone should be able to get better on their own. What’s up with that? Today’s guest, Bessie Ann Christen with The Parenting Center is here to talk about the stigma of mental illness and steps we can all take to support our spouse, our children’s parent, our friends or family. Tune in to hear more.

  • Is Spanking in Black Communities a residual effect of Slavery?

    in Entertainment

    To spank or not to spank is the question. I'm sure many of us while growing up black was spanked once or twice in our lives. Did getting spankings make you a viloent person? Did getting spankings make you feel that you were slaves and your parents were the slave masters or did getting spankings help you? Well Wednesday night at 11pm on S and M Radio we will discuss Spankings and the Black community. Are we teaching our black babies how to be violent? When spanking our kids what is the lesson that we are trying to convey? Is spanking really necessary in this day and time? Or are we getting scapegoated once again as being a violent people.

    but massa good to us : How Black Americans Support and Finance Modern Slavery

    in News

    the revolution of the mind continues....

    but massa good to us ... How Black Americans Support and Finance Modern Slavery

    Unbeknownst to many Americans, slavery was never abolished. The 13th amendment to the constitution states it plainly. The methods have changed, but the practice is the same. 

    Now the slavery is called fancy names like "mass incarceration" and the plantation is now "the prison industrial complex"...

    And we Black Americans support it. In thought and with our finances .. Most without even realizing it. Black support for modern slavery of Black Americans is entrenched in our everyday life.

    Tune in Tuesday night at 10pm if you are ready to wake up and see the matrix. 

    Won' be home, no problem.  Text WYMS to 67000 and get the listen in number sent directly to your phone 5 minutes to showtime
