• Oprah: Is She Qualified To Speak On The Ferguson Protesters?

    in Culture

    In case you didn't know, Oprah Winfrey is NOT the Messiah!


    But somebody needs to tell her that as soon as possible!


    Now that statement was sprinkled with a bit of sarcasm so please don't think that I despise Ms. Winfrey, that's not the case at all.


    My dislike is toward her actions - or rather lack of them - is when it comes to addressing the issues in the Black community she treats them like they don't exist until she has a movie coming out.


    It's almost as though she sees the pain and suffering that Black people must endure on a daily basis as merely a way to get the money pot stirred so that she can reap the benefits with the high box office numbers that happen whenever we as Black people see someone that looks like us on the screen to bring in the big bucks.


    I mean DAMN OPRAH! Are Black people simply trained monkeys to you that are to jump through your cinematic hoops every time you have a flick to hustle to the masses?


    .......do you feel as though we should feel that your movies are some kind of reward like a puppy feels when he gets a doggie snack?


    We jump for you all of the time Oprah, but in recent memory - and NOT so recent memory - you don't seem to care for us enough to give us the support when the people who look like YOU - male AND female - are shot down in cold blood with no hesitation or remorse whatsoever!


    How does it feel to look down on the poor city of us common working stiffs knowing that you for the most part have been given a pass to what most of us will have to endure for the rest of our lives in this country called Amerikkka?


    How does it feel to look in the mirror to know that you will always be Amerikkka's favorite Mammy and be paid well to continue a well known tradition that has been going on here for hundreds of years?


    How does it feel?

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1060

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Bo Budinsky, a returning NAASCA family member from Texas, who's a child abuse survivor and a tireless child protection and adult survivor advocate. In January 2013 he founded Save One Survivor, after a life of addiction, shattered relationships, abandoned careers and homeless. As a child he'd been repeatedly violated. Bo knew himself as a broken person, deeply troubled and hopelessly addicted. He spent years working on himself, grabbing onto anything available which he thought would be healing. In September, 2010, Bo was selected to appear on Oprah Winfrey's now-famous 200 Male Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse show. Bo shares, "I had an epiphany. It became clear what my struggle all these years had been about. It was about the business of preparing me to be in a place where I could be of service to others with the same plight." He continues, "Only these last few years have I "come out of hiding" so to speak. I have been ashamed of something and running my entire life. I never knew what it was. Now I know. I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and it has profoundly affected my life." Bo says "I have one favor to ask. Please speak up, loudly, if you have even an inkling that a child is being sexually abused. Living with the effects is torturous. And if you think it is not very prevalent listen to this: 1 in 3 women AND 1 in 5 men are sexually abused before they are 18. What is at stake is the innocence of a precious child." See his video "It's Time to Talk About It"

    Greg Archer, journalist and author of "Grace Revealed" March 26th, 9PM EST

    in Books

    Seventy-five years after Joseph Stalin's reign of terror across Eastern Europe, entertainment journalist Greg Archer takes a step back from Hollywood and examines his Polish family's mind-bending odyssey of the 1940s. In the process, he exposes one of the most under-reported events of the 20th Century: Stalin's mass deportation of nearly two million Polish citizens to the Siberian gulags and the life-shattering events that followed. The book, Grace Revealed, takes you on that journey.


    But the author's quest takes a dramatic turn. As he walks an emotional tightrope between the past and the present, can a serendipitous global adventure become a saving grace, heal the ancestral soul and bring justice to his family and their forgotten Polish comrades?


    Greg Archer is an award-winning journalist, editor, cultural moderator and author. His journalism and man-on-the-street coverage of agents of change, arts, culture, travel and the entertainment industry appear regularly in The Huffington Post, San Francisco Examiner, Jetset Extra and on his popular YouTube portal. He has been a contributor to Oprah Magazine, The Advocate, VIA Magazine, Palm Springs Life, Bust, Prevention, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Monterey Herald and other publications.


    The book trailer for Grace Revealed is at the link below:
