"The power is in the people, not the paper."
~ Danette Chavis, CEO and Founder of National Action Against Police Brutality and Murder.
Every eight(8) hours someone is killed by a police office in America. Conversely, law enforcement agents are convicted in less one(1) percent of these tragic incidents. Just to keep things in perspective, ThinkProgress.com reports that police in the United States killed more people than the UK did in the entire 20th century. In fact, it was twice as many; police in the UK only killed 52 people during that 100 year period.
Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri Thursday, November 19, 2015 at 9 PM EST(6 PM PST, 7 PM MST, 8 PM CST) as we dissect, examine, and analyze police brutality, unjust murder, and the police state with our sister, activist, and freedom fighter Danette Chavis. Danette is the CEO and Founder of National Action Against Police Brutality and Murder. She has turned her personal tragedy into a fight for justice. Her quest is to hold police officers and their superiors accountable for their cruel and unusual behavior directed at the citizens of America.
Trust me, this is one episode that you do not want to miss. When Danette speaks, truth is heard and a call to action goes out to all with wisdom and understanding.
Plus the brother Dennis Jefferson with be stopping in for another summation of Monday night's Healthy Matters.

What Do You Know About Thanksgiving?
Join us, Alex Primo and Asha Zuri, this week(Thursday, November 12 at 9 pm est) as we explore the true nature and history of one of the biggest celebrations of the year, Thanksgiving. A day that has multiple meanings and is considered a time for families to gather and enjoy themselves. But is there something else going on "behind the scenes"? Is there some ancient festival that predates America that caused the creation of this feast-day?
Come with us as we look back through the centuries and explain how early Americans celebrated this occasion and how Indigenous Natives thought of it. Find out how and when it became a national holiday. Find out if it is truly a holy day or simply a holiday. Then the big question, should Black Americans celebrate this day?

Black Scholars You Should Know
Due to the pervasive influence of white supremacy all information pertaining to Melanated persons must be questioned. To be more specific, all history and knowledge that has been acquired from those who embrace this great white deception, must be examined and vetted. Enter the great Black scholars who have done just that.
Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri Thursday, November 5 at 9 pm EST as we explore and discuss a few of our great Melanated brothers and sisters who researched, uncovered, and delivered priceless scholarly works that served to enlighten and edify those who were sleeping, in denial, or just didn't want to know. Works that demonstrate just how important the Black man has been to America and the world.
One such brother is Ivan van Sertima who wrote "They Came before Columbus." Showing that Africans reached the so called New World prior to Columbus.
Dr, Frances Cress Welsing who wrote "The Isis Papers" wherein she details how whites are fighting for their very survival due to their lack of dominant genes.
Dr. Yosef Ben-Jochannan who wrote 49 books which primarily detailed the significance of the Melanated man in Western cultures.
In addition to all of these brilliant scholars, brother Dennis Jefferson will be stopping by for another episode of Healthy Matters.

Are Crime Statistics Reliable?
We all use them when reporting on police brutality or the Black condition in general. But do we really know how accurate this information is? It doesn't help that one of the most quoted sources tells you up front that all information is submitted voluntarily. That's right, fbi.gov makes it very clear that "Figures used in this Report were submitted voluntarily by law enforcement agencies throughout the country." So, the people that we don't trust are the same people who we are trusting to supply us with factual and accurate data regarding police behavior? Adding insult to injury, there are even accusations of police departments manufacturing misleading stats.
You don't want to miss this show brothers and sisters.
Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri Thursday October 22 at 9 PM EST as we examine crime stats, police data, and their accuracy and veracity.

The Occult Origins of Halloween
Let's just get right into it. Halloween is nothing more than a ritualistic celebration of pagan deities, trickery, and deviltry.
The symbols and themes associated with this bit of confusion makes it very clear that good, is not on the menu. Speaking of the menu, the candy itself was said to be some sort of bribe to appease evil spirits so they would not antagonize a household.
Jack-O-Lanterns were originally known as ‘Corpse Candles’ because they burned fat from victims of human sacrifice. And there is so much more.
Join Alex Primo & Asha Zuri Thursday, October 15 at 9 pm est as we explore and dissect the popular celebration called Halloween. A day that America proudly displays it's celebration of evil out in the open. We will also take a look at the origin(s), nature, and occult symbology related to this tradition.

Gun Control & Historical Racism
As Black Americans we must realize that gun control laws, from a historical perspective, serve one purpose, to keep us vulnerable and more easily oppressed. This is not conjecture or rhetoric, it is easily documented fact.
Join us, Alex Primo and Asha Zuri, Thursday October 8th at 9 PM EST as we explore the way America sought to disarm Melanated individuals across the land as part of a ruthless plot to control, intimidate, and in many cases murder innocent slaves and freed men alike.
Brendan O’Neill of the Guardian notes:
Throughout the 1800's, states passed gun-control laws that were fundamentally racist. So, panicked by the prospect of more black rebellions against white landowners, the North Carolina Supreme Court passed a statute in 1840 that said: “If any free negro, mulatto, or free person of color shall wear or carry about his or her person, or keep in his or her house, any shotgun, musket, rifle, pistol, sword, dagger or bowie-knife… he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and may be indicted therefore.”
In 1941, a judge in Florida’s Supreme Court called the laws into question when he overturned the conviction of a black man for carrying a handgun without a permit. He overturned the conviction, he said, because this law “was passed for the purpose of disarming the negro laborers … and to give the white citizens in sparsely settled areas a better feeling of security. The statute was never intended to be applied to the white population and in practice has never been so applied.”
All of this plus brother Dennis Jefferson will be dropping by with another fantastic episode of Healthy Matters.

Some of you believe that we cannot defeat those who would subdue or slaughter us. Well, I do not share such cowardly and ridiculous thoughts. Sure we have to be smart because they are formidable, but if I may paraphrase Garvey, the power that holds African Americans is not divine ... it is flesh and blood.
Join Alex Primo, Asha Zuri, and Zhe Levels Scott Thursday October 1 at 9 PM EST as we discuss not only what is possible in regards to Melanated Self-Defense, but we will explore and examine what our great forerunners did in the past to protect one another. We will look at a Black Doctor who knew he had to take up arms to protect his family and people. We will look at a brother who believed in shoot first and shoot last. We will also look at Indigenous Americans fighting the Klan and more.
And of course the good brother Dennis Jefferson will be bringing us another fantastic episode of Healthy Matters.
This is going to be a HOT one so get ready to tune-in.

Ancient Africans in America
Before Columbus left for the New World, Melanated brothers and sisters were already living in what we call the Americas. Obviously we know, as does anyone with a brain, that it's impossible to discover a land populated by other people. The land may be knew to you, but that does not mean that it is a new land. That's like a bunch of strangers knocking on your door telling you that they just discovered your house. Well, weren't you living there before they "discovered" it? So would that not mean that you found it before they did?
Join Alex Primo, Asha Zuri, and Zhe Levels Scott Thursday September 24 at 9 PM EST as we explore and discuss the untold, or rather untaught, history of Melanated(Black) People who walked the shores of the Americas long before those who claimed to have "found" it.
Proof of the Melanated presence in America before Columbus comes from Columbus himself. In 1920, historian Leo Weiner of Harvard University, in his book, "Africa and the discovery of America", explained how Columbus noted in his journal that Indigenous Americans had confirmed that “black skinned people had come from the south-east in boats, trading in gold-tipped spears.”
Also the brother Dennis Jefferson will be stopping by for another informative and much needed episode of Healthy Matters.
