SORT BY Relevancy
Critical Conversations for this week ending August 29th is about the kids going back to school and whether the Common Core curriculum is right for America's children. Assembled for this discussion are Editor in Chief, and Common Core proponent who will be speaking with Dr. Jim Picht, presently teaching at Louisiana Scholars College and author - columnist Tim Kern who spent years in academia teaching America's youth.
Next up is whether Mitt Romney and Hillary Clinton are our only viable 2016 Presidential candidate. The fact of the matter is they are the only candidates that can run without financial backing from their parties. How does this change the landscape. Can money buy the White House when you have an unmotivated public tired of the scandals from the White House and the lack of substantive progress from either the Republicans or Democrats in the House and Senate.
Finally, Ebola is one of those diseases that the media likes to stir into the melting pot of public hysteria. Dr. Picht, whose one Ph.d (yes, he has more than one) is in Microbiology, will explain what we need to be afraid of, or not.
If you have ever heard any of the following comments as a Black person from anyone who is White, you'll fully understand the total frustration that comes with hearing something from someone who makes an attempt to minimize the effects of your personal obstacles that are unique to someone who comes in the packaging of one who is Black:
GET OVER IT! SLAVERY WAS ABOLISHED A LONG TIME AGO!
What are YOU crying about? You have Affirmative Action and we have reverse racism!
I pulled myself up by the bootstraps, you can do the same thing too just like anyone else!
You have a Black President, racism is over!
The Koreans in your very neighborhoods are making a killing at the bank! Why can't you people do the same?
I believe that this list of asinine comments could go on into infinity, but many who make them are truly ignorant to the realities of moving about this earth in skin that possesses a high melanin count.
Many will also swear that there is absolutely no systematic effort to abort the advancement of Black people in America as they will point to the few success stories that have been allowed to slip through the cracks of oppression.
This type of mentality will "color" the perceptions of the so called Mainstream Americans in every dealing that they have with us in a way that is truly destructive to our well being.
It's a counterproductive mentality that is felt by all no matter what level one is on as far as their achievements in education, career, pedigree or status. Whther one earns six or seven figures, it is a dynamic that every Black person has encountered at one point or another in their journey here on American soil and Pastor Damon Richardson will offer a deeper insight to counteract those claims that are based in ignorance!
Would you work with Danny Ferry after hearing the comments that were made?
Does Danny Ferry's accomplishments overrule what he has done?
Do you think Adam Silver should get involved? (even though Bruce Levenson is selling his controlling share?)
Will the players and fans be able to overcome this situation?
Do you think that this is the first time the Atlanta Hawks organization is experiencing this situation or was this the first time one of the owners spoke up about the racist comments?
Should Danny Ferry lose his job?
How should the Atlanta Hawks' players handle the situation?
Atlanta's WSB-TV reported Monday that Hawks minority owner Michael Gearon wrote a letter to Levenson calling for Ferry's resignation or firing. Gearon's letter, which is dated June 12 and can be read here, included an account of Ferry's comment about Luol Deng, an unrestricted free agent at the time who was born in South Sudan.
With respect to one potential free agent, a highly-regarded African-American player and humanitarian, Ferry talked about the player's good points, and then went on to describe his negatives, stating that he "has a little African in him. Not in a bad way, but he's like a guy who would have a nice store out front but sell you counterfeit stuff out of the back." Ferry completed the racial slur by describing the player (and impliedly, all persons of African descent) as a two-faced liar and cheat.
We were appalled that anyone would make such a racist slur under any circumstance, much less the GM of an NBA franchise on a major conference call. One of us can be heard on the tape reacting with astonishment. Our franchise has a long history of racial diversity and inclusion that reflects the makeup of our great city. Ferry's comments were so far out of bounds that we are concerned that he has put the entire franchise in jeopardy.
For his part, Johnson said, referring to a disturbing racially tinged conversation Sterling was said to have had with a female friend that was made public by the gossip website TMZ, “If the reports are true, there needs to be strong and swift action taken.”
The government wants to tell you how to properly - and safely - roast marshmallows. We ask the important questions, such as: are they trying to suck the fun out of campfires? Is this a cover so that they can realign s'mores to meet the First Lady's exacting nutrition standards? How many of the key components can one remove from a s'more before it ceases to be a s'more?
Also: How is the removal of a bacon sign like the Bowe Bergdahl prisoner exchange? And the related question: how is a vegan like a terrorist?
John Kerry's dumb tweet of the week, the latest on Ferguson, and what to do if someone you love is supporting a Romney 2016 bid.
Today I am joined by healer Cheryl Weekes. Cheryl is the author of several books on healing, Taming Neuropathy and Taming your Pain. Both books deal with the real life situation of dealing with chronic pain. Cheryl suffered terribly from Neuropathy and through a Mindful practice was able to take her pain from a 10 to a 1. She will explain how she can to this understanding, how to utilize these skills in your own life. I met Cheryl at Rupert Sheldrake group studing mind over matter - so to speak! She shared with me that after taking a course from healer Eric Pearl, she was able to help people in a more profound way and I can't wait to hear more about this process. Hope you can join in!

Join me, Michelle Manders and Rev. Faith Parent Hendrickson as we talk about a question I have certainly been asked dozens of times ~ "Where have all the good men/women gone?" We talk about how the modern world has played a massive role in changing what we see, what we want and what we go after as a self-conscious and sadly vain society. We also discuss the influence of main stream media and what we as individuals need to do in order to allow others who feel like us to feel safe enough to come out and be seen and heard. There are a lot of good men and women out there. You just need to know where to look and what to look for, and we offer some tips and advice on this. We invite our listeners to e-mail us with their expereinces or questions so we can address them and offer guidance and support where possible. Send your questions and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or, leave your comments at the bottom of this page.
