    Tonights Topic(s) will try and bring some updated awareness to the exemptions language, some are seeking oppose and/or are in favor of, the Vaccine Wars going on in various States around the country.  We will also attempt to cover other topics as they are brought to the table.  Please job us on Blog Talk Radio, The Initiative Radio Network @ 1-914-803-4571 at 5pm/cst, 6pm/est.  Isn't it about saving the children, our children especially!  ...the black communities are the most to suffer from injustices as it has been for many hundreds of years.  How do we ensure we are not the first on the list for new drug trials right here in our communities.  Lets look at the SB 277 language in California for example, some of it has already been line-through and replaced with different language of intent.  Where are the drug companies in all of the legislation, we know they lobby!  Do they not stand to profit in the billions of dollars if they get there way?  Yes, they do!

    Dispatches From the Vaccine Wars in California

    The standing-room-only crowd at the meeting was there to protest what was, in some ways, the least essential item on the agenda. One council member had proposed sending a letter to the California state legislature in support of SB 277, a proposed bill that would get rid of the state’s personal belief exemptions for vaccines, while keeping medical exemptions intact.

    Sharpton on hunger strike! NOT! - Marriage a human right?

    in Politics

    Hr1  UK welfare bride who is too fat to work says taxpayers should pay $15k for her wedding. It's a human right!

    Woman passed over for a job due to inappropriate attire. Judgement is one of those skills you need to land a job, that includes in your attire & how you handle criticism. The only way this woman is going to land a job now is by getting a face transplant after posting a profanity-laced rant on social media.

    Hr2   Millennials, common sense, and entitlements. Do you hire people in the millennial generation?

    Ben Carson says he and Rev. Al Sharpton have the same goal for America. Ben is either naive and trying to give Sharpton the benefit of the doubt or completely oblivious. Either way, he's not equipped to be president!

    Only in California would legislators declare a state of emergency after dumping perfectly good, clean water into the ocean in order to save an un-endangered bait fish! We should have been capturing that water for years. Now we have a man-made dust bowl, courtesy of the California Legislature. Genius! 

    Hr3  Ohio public school hosts “Covered Girl Challenge” asks students to wear a hijab for a day. Do you think it's ok? Do you think they'll also challenge students to wear a yarmulke? A cross? A priest's robe? A Sikh dastaar? Doubtful.

    Rev. Al Sharpton launches hunger strike to get Loretta Lynch AG confirmation.

    Out-of-state students at UVA and UMD were asked if they would be willing to give up their U.S. citizenship to become “undocumented students” so their tuition would be $80k less. Think they did it? Yep!

    Scott Eastwood reveals what Clint Eastwood was like as a father, Old school upbringing.

    And now, the California legislature is working to provide medical for illegals. Why?

  • Black Reconstruction #LaShawnAllenMuhammad 323.927.2913

    Who were the first Black Elected Officials? During the month of November, as the country gears up to re-elect or vote in the next wave of politicians, Black Reconstruction will revisit the Reconstruction era to pay homage to the Black Men who came before Obama.  During this tumultuous time, Blacks not only established townships, they also positioned themselves to be an integral part of government.   

    At a Glance.. In 1855, Brownhelm Township, founded by Col. Henry Brown,  gained notoriety throughout the U.S, when the township elected an African-American to government office.  The NY Syracuse Daily Journal, May 31, 1855 reported that John Mercer Langston was a fugitive slave who had been elected clerk.  Brownhelm's early residents had long been known for their strong anti-slavery stance; and Col. Henry Brown's home on the Lake Shore was often a final stop on the Underground Railroad, before reaching Canada by boat.    African-American Firsts: Government

    Local elected official: John Mercer Langston, 1855, town clerk of Brownhelm Township, Ohio.

    State elected official: Alexander Lucius Twilight, 1836, the Vermont legislature.

    Governor (appointed): P.B.S. Pinchback served as governor of Louisiana from Dec. 9, 1872-Jan. 13, 1873, during impeachment proceedings against the elected governor.

    U.S. Representative: Joseph Rainey became a Congressman from South Carolina in 1870 and was reelected four more times. 

    U.S. Senator: Hiram Revels became Senator from Mississippi from Feb. 25, 1870, to March 4, 1871, during Reconstruction.  

    There have only been a total of five black senators in U.S. history: the remaining two are Blanche K. Bruce [1875-1881] and Barack Obama
