Sports, Social Media, Entertainment, and the NEWS...We've all seen the controversy, Someone makes comments that spark some level of outrage. But are we really surprised? Are we really expecting others to believe that we are living in a post racial society? How do we address the Plantation Mentality of not just sports owners but those who look like us but defend them?
Louisana's Creole culture and a famed New Orleans' neighborhood share the spotlight on today's show. Our Creole cultural exploration takes us just outside New Orleans to the Old Mississippe River Road where we'll share the story of a Creole family and a plantation named Laura--voted "Best history tour in the USA" by Lonely Planet Travel and a top travel attraction in Louisiana. Laura Plantation, named after Laura Locoul Gore, is an old sugarcane plantation over 200 years old. We experienced life on the plantation as a member of the Locoul family through the voice of one of Laura's decendents, Norman Marmillion.
We will also visit Faubourg Treme with filmmaker Dawn Logsdon. Treme is considered the oldest black neighborhood in America and the birthplace of the civil rights movement in the South. Treme is a place where African-Americans lived free during slavery and became a place of social and economic diversity.

There aren't very many people left in the world who will not agree that Black America has some serious issues.
Not just "issues" like everybody else, but some very serious mental and emotional health, as well as socio-economic problems that are directly related to racism.
Toure of MSNBC used the words "The Power of Whiteness" to answer a female who stated that "her ancestors came here with nothing and made it work" (not). His word covered VOLUMES of truth about the impact of skin-color racism on Black people around the world; Black people of all shades, ethnicities, and backgrounds. Impossible as it is to write a book in six words or less, Toure achieved this in FOUR: The Power of Whiteness.
No one in the world can claim that bigotry and prejudice -even when it comes from Black people- has affected and impacted them the way racism has impacted us.
Last time, we talked about "Plantation Picaninnies": The subjection, objectification and abuse of Black women.
We already know what happened to us -we've heard it over and over- but there is a bigger picture about what we do to ourselves that self-implodes and hampers and impedes our own social and moral progress.
Why? What's wrong? What will it take before we "get it," or will someone else give it us first?
Tune in for the next segment of "Plantation Picaninnies": Black People Need to Come Clean.
THE WORLDCLASS SMARTAZZ and The REVOLUTIONARY RYDERS, examine the plantation mentality that white America has developed. In "Post racial America" everything is supposed to be all good for black folks, racism is dead in America...right? The string of ridiculously malicious, racist acts across this country has shown us that whites hate blacks now more than ever. The NBA debacle was just a reminder that no matter what we think we are still house niggas and field niggas.Why should black America even care about how they feel about us, why are we contiously shook and hurt every time white folks show their true colors? How does freedom of speech play into things?

According to The Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia at Ferris State University: "The picaninny was the dominant racial caricature of black children for most of this country's history."
The Abuse, Subjection, Subjugation and Objectification of Black Women and Children the world over is a fact, and with that pain also come the MEN -our sons and fathers, nephews, brothers, uncles, cousins- through our wombs, who cannot remain children forever; but we MUST raise them, we DO raise them, for better or for worse in sickness and in health until death do us part.
The abuse of Black women worldwide is not every now and again, it happens so much that we internalize it and do it to ourselves. These are the kinds of things that we go through on a DAILY basis, around the clock - non-stop, without relinquishment. It is never any wonder why so many Black women behave the way we do, given the circumstances.
Whether we are in church battling over a 'position' or a label in corporate America, or fighting and competing with one another in a dead heat out in the streets, the end results are always the same: More abuse and more objectification. A revolving door cycle that never ends and gets passed on, and WE ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO HAVE THE POWER TO END IT.
What is the FIRST STEP TO HEALING? Acknowledging that there IS a problem. Period. We cannot keep ignoring these things and think that the world will get any better, or that it will just go away. IT MATTERS: Hurt people hurt people.
Shereen Renee, communications director for King's Town Family Foundation, asks a blunt question on this episode of Roundtable: Why is the world hating on Black women?
Is it jealousy, bitterness, or 'something else'?
Join the panel to discuss the reasons why Black women often have such low self-esteem issues and the mental health disparities that often cause us to "unravel at the seams" and "ack a straight fool" even when it's uncalled for.
Today's show will find World Footprints traveling to the crown jewel of Louisiana's River Road, revisiting a dark chapter in American history, and uncovering the best that New Orleans has to offer. The Houmas House in Darrow, Louisiana is an antebellus plantation and sister property of the famous Greenbrier Resort in Virginia. This historical jewel sits between New Orleans and Baton Rouge and contains a treasure trove of history within its walls. We were pleased t
The infantile name-calling never ceases from Democratic “leadership”.
So, Mr. Reid, Clarence Thomas is “white”, because he’s not a “card-carrying” member of the “plantation”? Frankly, I thought he was going to refer to the other male justices as black, but I guess, he didn’t want to be considered racist.
Same old tune; liberals can use the race-card at a whim, but just let a conservative criticize Obama …
As I’ve done enough to make the case that Clarence Thomas is indeed, a remarkable brother; wise, balanced, and I forgot – black, there really isn’t a need to defend him any further. However, what should be noted, is the glaring hypocrisy of those who call for [the one-way street of] “tolerance”.
This week, Barack Obama met with Governor Perry, to discuss the border crisis of illegal-immigrant children. All the more interesting, in light of the lecturing of liberals, on “compassion for children”, as it’s conveniently forgotten that most of their parents have abandoned them. In fact, an MS-NBC pundit actually brought – THE BIBLE into the debate, just when I thought, this was the “hang-up” of the “right-wing”.
Speaker Boehner has released the details of his lawsuit against Obama.
Despite the fact that SCOTUS ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby, democrats are trying to circumvent the Ruling, in the name of “women’s rights”. Wasn’t the GOP lambasted for continuing its’ challenges to Obamacare, after SCOTUS’ ruling? Oh, I forgot; REPUBLICANS aren’t allowed to mount such challenges!

Listen to Louis Gossett Jr. talk about recovery and humanity with host Marti MacGibbon.
With regard to recovery, Louis Gossett Jr. sends a very clear message about who really is in charge, but how we can make the best of our own personal journey, and how we are all on Gods time.
On the topic of racism, Mr. Gossett shares he thoughts about how close we have come to Dr. Martin Luther King's "Dream", and his personal experience and conversation he had with Nelson Mandela upon his release. He explains how racism may be in our DNA, but it doesn't have to be implanted in our children; rather, through shamba, Swahili for plantation, we can plant different seeds in our children and watch a better world grow forth.
Other topics include Barack Obama, his book "Actor and a Gentleman", and a Life Time Achievement award.
Mr. Gossett speaks openly about his disease and his recovery. What he is grateful for. The importance of recovery meetings, even while you travel. In addition to what the future has in store. The message he sends to our children at the end of the show is profound, and it demonstrates the care and compassion he has for not only the children, but for everyone on this planet, especially those who have received the brunt of discrimination, and even the planet itself.
This is a powerful and profound show woven together with the threads of care and hope. It's a show you don't want to miss.
