SORT BY Relevancy
Join us with guest Michele Lang, Assoc. Director of Campus Ministries·at Warner Pacific of Portland, OR and BJ Lindhurst, 16 year old James Logan student. How do we have these conversations about the protests in a constructive way? What is the issue- race, injustice, police brutality, unruly kids?
Suddenly, it feels like the 1960s again, with swirling movements for social justice finding inspiration and a powerful common denominator in the struggle for black equality.
Multiracial, multi-ethnic, multi-class, and multi-generational Americans have swarmed the streets in vast numbers to not only protest against racial injustice but to expose systemic oppression that has been an open secret since the heyday of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
The decision by a Staten Island, New York, grand jury not to indict Police Officer Daniel Pantoleo in the choking death of Eric Garner came nine days after Ferguson, Missouri, erupted into an open rebellion following another grand jury’s decision not to indict former police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, a black teenager.
While violence engulfed parts of downtown Ferguson, 170 cities staged largely peaceful demonstrations both in solidarity with the #BlackLivesMatter movement and in demand of a vision of social justice that far surpasses the imagination of most contemporary politicians and pundits.
Thousands of New Yorkers took to the streets on Wednesday and Thursday nights to express outrage against the political system that allowed a black man to be choked to death while screaming, “I can’t breathe!”
Across the country this movement has been spreading with protesters stopping traffic on highways and busy streets. Here in Baltimore protesters attempted to shutdown the annual Christmas tree lighting in downtown Baltimore. Do events like this help or hurt the cause
This episode we are joined by several student activist and organizers for a deeply in-depth and honest conversation regarding the ongoing protests regarding police brutality, as well as the legacy of institutionalized anchored to police brutality. This is the kind of honest dialogue and perspective that mainstream media tries to suppress regarding white supremacy and structural racism. Tune in now and spread the word...

So who taught you how to eat?
Was it a parent who said things like;
Finish everything on your plate. There are children starving all over the world!
Eat everything on your plate, or no dessert!
Maybe it was just the kind of food you were served that may or may not be a kindness to your body now.
However it went, do you know you can choose differently now?
