With the deaths of Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Walter Scott, Freddy Gray and countless others, has brought outrage amoung many Americans. They fell that the system designed to protect them is acutally out to kill them.

    Who will Police the Police? America Police problems continue.

    in Radio

    It has become a broken record. I thought my ancestors and those that have came before me suffered enough but, the suffering continues. You seen the video of police officer Michael Blagger shooting the Walter Scott. The deaths of black men at the hands of police officers keep adding up. All the marching in the world hasn't changed enough has it? What america needs is a change in the way these police officers are being trained. Otherwise this volcano will begin to errupt soon or, The aftermath that will follow will be monumental. What is clear is that the police are brainwashed like much of the majority race and media. Why is it so acceptable that Black men to be killed?A Texas Bill will make recording police illegal unfreaking real!!!.

    The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 & Fractional Reserve Banking

    in Education

    The Federal Reserve Act (enacted December 23, 1913 signed into law by president Woodrow Wilson) was purportedly designed to aid in:


    1.    Conducting the nation’s monetary policy by influencing monetary and credit conditions in the economy in pursuit of maximum employment, stable prices, and moderate long-term interest rates.
    2.    Supervising and regulating banking institutions to ensure the safety and soundness of the nation’s banking and financial system, and protect the credit rights of consumers.
    3.    Maintaining stability of the financial system and containing systemic risk that may arise in financial markets.
    4.    Providing financial services to depository institutions, the U.S. government, and foreign official institutions, including playing a major role in operating the nation’s payments system.


    The Origins of Fractional Reserve Banking


    In XVIth century England people who had gold would deposit it with goldsmiths for safekeeping. In exchange they got a signed receipt guaranteeing that they could retrieve it. The value assigned to that note backed by the gold in the goldsmith’s vault made it possible to use it for payment.

    That means if A deposited £10 worth of gold and had in his possession a receipt he could settle his debt with it. That receipt, actually a promissory note, became money. The person who took it in payment could either use it as is, or at some later point retrieve the gold in the goldsmith’s keeping.

    At the same time B borrows £10 worth of gold from the goldsmith but receives a promissory note. He settles his debt to C with that note. Now there are two notes in circulation for one amount of gold. The goldsmith issues further notes, knowing that all claims would not have to be honored at the same time.

    Richmond,CA Police Chief Chris Magnus

    in Politics

    Richmond,CA Police Chief Chris Magnus,I will conduct an exclusive interview concerning The Baltimore crisis and his unique method of community policing. Chief Magnus, who is white, went so far as to hold a “Black Lives Matter” sign. “It seemed to totally represent what we’re trying to accomplish,” says Magnus, “which is respect: this idea that we acknowledge that the relationship between police and the African American community, particularly in many cities, has really been at best strained and at worst incredibly difficult for many, many years.”Magnus took some grief for holding the sign, but he stands by his decision: “It doesn’t mean a wholesale endorsement of attacks on police or saying that police are brutal or racist across the board. Of course I don’t feel that way. I feel like all lives matter. That’s really what community policing should be about.

    Black Police Officers: Where is Your Loyalty?

    in Current Events

    When Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced that charges would be filed against six Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, did anyone assume that these officers were all white men?  Who would think there would be three black officers involved in the death of young black man when the statistic are so high when it comes to officer involved shootings of blacks. 


    The three black officers, Caesar R. Goodson, William G. Porter and Sergeant Alicia D. White all had a choice of involvement.  Did the Blue Code take precedence over the human rights of this black man?


    Join Hot Topics Talk Radio as they sit down for an in-depth discussion regarding this very controversial issue that continues to raise questions about the loyalty of Black Law Enforcement Officers.
