SORT BY Relevancy
A conversation about how Jessie, Al, NAACP, the King siblings and others are profiting from painful situation. Once again we saw the Poverty Pimps come on to keep the negros quiet. I wonder when they will figure out more ways to get rich from the Deaths in Chicago.
What has happened to this round of cash collection?
Capturing a challenge and the Impossibilities in our lives are not easy. It’s the beginning and not the end of a legacy that has mounted up and would not quit before its time. A legacy of endurance, belief that times would get better and the obedience factor. You have chosen to show love and give to the needy with gladness. Even though God is first, but how often will you be faced with that question? In the end if you should not quit never will it appear the righteous dismissed or their off springs begging for bread.
We might say its free to leave your family with a legacy or something in remembrance, but someone did pay a hefty price tag. Someone had to wait or learn patience. That someone had to learn truth and when necessary speak truth. The value of a family is priceless. We do things because it’s the right thing to do and it’s what we do best. We have learned to walk humble and I do not classify oneself as weak or a push over. We have learned when and how to if necessary to inform the conductor of his runaway train.
Why is it important to talk about poverty in education? How do we do that in a way that is respectful and meaningful?
Many times, discussions about education reform intentionally conflate race and class. There are a few reasons for this, including that the federal courts have slowly closed the courthouse doors to claims of race discrimination in education. Courts also have almost completely prohibited voluntary efforts to create racial diversity in schools. As a result, equity proponents have been forced into a difficult position - using socioeconomic status as a proxy for race. This often leaves educators, community members, and others thinking about poverty only in terms of race. Our special guest, Dr. Adriane Williams, will equip listeners with the necessary tools to navigate between the overlapping worlds of race and poverty in education.
Tonight...We will be interviewing real ass pimps! Women or Men...If you have a story call in.....

Church is supposed to be a sacred place, but can the sanctuary remain holy when pastors are acting more like pimps than religious leaders? Sexual impropriety, financial misconduct and emotional manipulation can all be found in Bible scriptures, but they also fill headlines about today’s preachers. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson takes on abuse in the church with men and women of the cloth. Dr. Donald Matthews, offers a test for determining whether the "pastor" or "pimp" label fits your religious leader. Reverend Brandon Crowley, pastor of Myrtle Baptist Church in Massachusetts, and Reverend Trina Evans, from Georgia’s Beulah Baptist Church get real and righteous about the challenges of shepherding a congregation in modern times. They also discuss mega churches, promiscuity, building fund lust and proper responses to church member emotional needs. No, we are not talking about your grandmother’s quiet “Shall We Gather at the River” church services.
It’s time to gather at the Roundtable as Stephanie Robinson delivers hot topics, deep talk and a little bit of uplift. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson...pull up a chair.
THIS IS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, SUPPOSEDLY THE RICHEST STRONGEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.
CITIZENS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES RISK THEIR LIVES DAILY FOR A TASTE OF THE AMERICAN DREAM.
HOWEVER THAT DREAM OFTEN TURNS INTO A NIGHTMARE FOR CITIZENS BORN IN THE UNITED STATES.
15% OF AMERICA LIVES IN POVERTY, WHILE MANY OTHER FAMILIES ARE ONLY A MISSED PAYCHECK FROM BEING IN POVERTY.
WHY IS THERE SO POVERTY IN THE RICHEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD?
Brief Reflection on Luke 16:19-31
The 19th Sunday after Pentecost, Proper 21, Year C
“Them that has, gets.” So the old expression goes… but what exactly do they get? And what does it cost them to get it? In this week’s gospel Jesus addresses the price of worldly wealth, its value, and the ultimate unintended consequences of riches. The “poor little rich girl” was a familiar figure in 19 Century popular literature. She had inherited everything but happiness. Her male counterpart was “Scrooge” whose name entered the language as the picture of grasping, hard-hearted wealth. Whether inherited or acquired, both paid a terrible price for riches. As the Beatles rock standard laments: “Money can’t buy me love.” And as the tabloids regularly attest: money can buy you boredom, addiction, despair and the cliché of beautiful lives broken by excess.
Are we trash talking the world? If you have a belief that there is not enough to go around, why would a child want to grow up? Should we teach a child to believe in abundance instead of poverty?
Children need to unfold and develop talents, so, why would we ever worry them with talk of poverty? What can they do about it? Do we guilt our children into feeling bad?
As a child did you use your imagination to help you accomplish things? Do adults forget how important imagination is to life? Should our politicians, administrators, clergy, and media be more cognizant of what they speak of or show to our youth?
What do you teach your own children? Are you teaching them lack instead of abundance?
