Liberal mentality is only Big Government can protect, feed, clothe, house & educate minorities
Taking guns away from them will not reduce crime. It may well increase the theft of guns and trafficking of illegally obtained guns. Labeling all minorities as criminal just to take guns away; wow democrat who knew that you hate minorities this much. It does prevent law abiding minority persons having the means to defend themselves against the criminal element. It will slightly alter the ratio of shot dead criminals to shot dead innocents in favor of the criminals. Taking guns away from criminals does not keep them from having guns.
Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg reportedly argued Friday that guns need to be kept out of the hands of minorities in order to keep them alive. While speaking at the Aspen Institute, Mr. Bloomberg, 72, said 95 percent of murders fall into a specific category: a male minority between the ages of 15 and 25, The Aspen Times reported.
Cities need to get guns out of this group’s hands and keep them alive, the former three-term mayor said, according to The Times.
“These kids think they’re going to get killed anyway because all their friends are getting killed,” said Mr. Bloomberg, who funds the gun-control advocacy group Every town for Gun Safety. “They just don’t have any long-term focus or anything. It’s a joke to have a gun. It’s a joke to pull a trigger.”
Mr. Bloomberg brought up the New York Police Department’s stop-and-frisk practices, recalling a time during his last year in office when a Baptist minster in Harlem invited him to speak at their church, The Times reported.

This will probably be one of the craziest shows I've done in a long time. I was presented with a question the other day, but in reality, it was a hypothesis, that minorities need a different type of sales training to be successful.
As some of you already know, I'm always listening to what people say. My first response to the question was "why would say this?" So I left the conversation shaking my head.
I want to hear what you have to say about this subject.
First, the sales industry is not for everyone to begin with. So why would someone say that minorities are a subset of an industry where the majority of people do not like sales?
Second, a sales concept is not black, white, Latin, or Asian. Why does sales training need to be conceptualized uniquely for minorities?
What would this alternate, conceptualize sales training include?
Let's talk about this subject.
On November 10th, 2014 New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton announced a new pot policy that would no longer allow the NYPD to arrest people caught with less than 25 grams of marijuana in their possesion. Although, some would agree that this new pot policy, which went into effect on November 19th, 2014 is a step in the right direction - many drug decriminalization advocates are not convinced that New York's new policy will, as Bill de Blasio said, "reduce the number of unnecessary arrests for minor marijuana possession and put an end to an era where many of young New Yorkers were being arrested and saddled with criminal records for minor violations."
According to the Drug Policy Alliance, the majority of these young New Yorkers are Black and Latino men and in this year alone they accounted for 86% of New Yorkers arrested for minor marjiuana possesion. So, what kind of impact will New York's new policy have on minority communities and the number of racially biased arrests?
Here to answer that question and walk us through New York's new pot policy is Kassandra Frederique the New York policy manager at the Drug Policy Alliance. The Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) is the nation's leading organization promoting drug policies that are grounded in science, compassion, health and human rights.
In honor of Black History Month Real Talk Live 216 will be discussing the stereotypes and portrayal of Minorities in Film, Media and Television. How are movies, actress, actors nominated by the Actor's Guild, Hollywood and the Oscars. Has the roles for minorities change or still the same. What can minorities do to change the image/stereotypes.
Satirical articles--those ragtag bits of "journalism" written and published as a humorus jolt to readers everywhere. The stories shock us, infuriate us, grab our attention, cause an uproar of blogs, chat room discussions and social media debates...only to be later exposed as the result of someone's tasteless idea of a joke. But when the content of what is written by satirists then materialize into real stories from "credible" news sources, (e.g. Iggy Azalea's racist tweets which were deemed fake, yet she'd been in the news before for controversial statements of racism, or the African-American man who bought a $400,000 home for $17 and was berated by white neighbors, only to have a real story emerge about a white supremacist openly state that he wanted to eliminate all non-whites from American soil)...are these articles simply tasteless literary bytes that we should dismiss? Or is this another distraction tactic to allow the plan to remove the "undesirables" in White America's eyes to be executed--since the average person is more likely to ignore such outrageous claims?

This week, my guest, Mary Fernandez, is joining me to talk about MentorNet, an organization dedicated to advancing women and underrepresented minorities in STEM fields. Mentoring helps women in remain in STEM careers and also be successful. Part of the challenge is gender, but another is race and culture and Mary will talk about her own story of how mentoring helped her overcome her challenges as a Latina woman in STEM and how MentorNet now is helping students of diverse backgrounds succeed.
Mary Fernandez was named CEO of MentorNet in 2013 and since that time has renewed the organization’s commitment to its core values. Drawing upon the past decade’s revolutionary changes in social communication and significant advances in mentoring social science, Fernandez and her team have completely re-envisioned MentorNet’s program and platform and advocate for scaling their initiatives significantly, as they are convinced that their new methodology will help all STEM students.
A leader and active volunteer, Fernandez earned a PhD in Computer Science from Princeton University and is the author of more than 50 scholarly publications. She holds five patents and has mentored more than 20 STEM protégés. In 2012 Fernandez was recognized by AT&T as a ‘Champion of Diversity,’ a distinction awarded annually to only five of AT&T’s more than 300,000 employees, and in 2011 she received HENAAC’s ‘Outstanding Technical Achievement-Industry’ award.
