    in Entertainment

    Unless you've been under a rock or on a distant planet you have seen the plethora of Black citizen being brutalized by law enforcement. We march, We plead and we beg for justice and our cries seem like they are falling on deaf ears.


    They tell you "All Cops Aren't bad". If this is true why is it that every time a Cop becomes a whistle-blower he quickly becomes an Ex-Cop?

    Detective Joe Crystal became a target of intimidation for his entire department after testifying against other officers in a misconduct case.  Following his testimony, he received threats from other officers, and even found a dead rat on his car one day.


    “He saw a wrong and decided he couldn't live with himself and did the right thing and was punished, I think that’s just unbelievable,” Nicholas Panteleakis, Crystal’s lawyer said.

During that same time period, Oklahoma’s rate for all people killed by law enforcement, including all races, is second only to New Mexico. However, Oklahoma, the District of Columbia, Nevada and Oregon are all tied for the rate at which people are killed. (The CDC treats the District of Columbia as a state when collecting and displaying statistics.)

    How Should Our Black Sons Respond to Police Detainment and or Harassment?

    in Education

    Shalom everyone, tonight will be another 9Mind cosmic show explosion. In lieu of all the videos on social media demonstrating that it is again open season on Black men/males here in America, it is only fitting that we discuss with our youth the proper behavior they need to demonstrate when dealing with a POLICE STATE. These rules may increase your husband, son, brother or any male loved ones chances of walking away from this very traumatizing and often frightening experience with their very lives. Tonight we shall go over some does and don'ts. Being that I'm not a male I think it only appropiate that I allow the 9Mind listeners to here frome someone I greatly admire and respect. Not only as a Black man of the high character and esteem so rarely seen and demonstrated today. But he's a Author, Musician, Husband and Father as well as self help motivational speaker who along with his beautiful wife Ayida not only home school all five of their exceptional children but also operate several online businesses and self help services dedicated to helping humanity as a whole be the best we all can be thru the application of education, proper parenting and most of all PERSONAL responsibilty. I will be playing a sample of an interview he did with KTL radio of his own personal testimony that I know will motivate as well as encourage all who here it. Most shows I am very hard on Black men having dropped the ball where the Black family is concerned and I stand by that accusation. But where this great and exceptional Brother, Black man and Father is concerned, I have nothing but the most authenticate admiration and respect for someone solely based off their Youtube videos and Blogtalk Radio shows demonstrate that when a man puts his FAMILY first. He can do ANYTHING!
