Originally aired 11/2011
From Facing Race 2008's Plenary 3, held on Saturday, November 15. The Compact for Racial Justice offers concrete strategies and policy proposals to reverse racial disparities and move our society towards full equity, inclusion and dignity for all people. The Compact transcends talk of personal prejudice with compelling evidence of institutional racism and realistic proactive solutions. It seeks to engage a broad multiracial base of activists, opinion leaders and policymakers in making government and powerful institutions accountable for eliminating racial inequality in our schools, hospitals, courtrooms and workplaces.

Spike Lee had some very straightforward words to say the other day about those who feel that we live in a Post-Racial America and that everything is moving forward between the races simply because there is now a Black President in the White House.
I personally have to say that I agree 100% with what Spike had to say and I also had a few of my own words that I wanted to add to the conversation.
Listen in and leave your comments so that the healthy and very much necessary dialogue can continue on a topic that many are in denial about and bury their heads in the sand when confronted with it.

Racial profiling is a practice that presents a great danger to the fundamental principles of our Constitution. Racial profiling disproportionately targets people of color for investigation and enforcement, alienating communities from law enforcement, hindering community policing efforts, and causing law enforcement to lose credibility and trust among the people they are sworn to protect and serve. We rely on the police to protect us from harm and to promote fairness and justice in our communities. The despicable practice of racial profiling, however, has led countless people to live in fear and created a system of law enforcement that casts entire communities as suspect.
Racial profiling continues to be a prevalent and egregious form of discrimination in the United States. This unjustifiable practice remains a stain on American democracy and an affront to the promise of racial equality. Since September 11, 2001, new forms of racial profiling have affected a growing number of people of color in the U.S., including members of Muslim, Arab, and South Asian communities. The Obama administration has inherited a shameful legacy of racial profiling codified in official FBI guidelines and a notorious registration program that treats Arabs and Muslims as suspects and denies them the presumption of innocence and equal protection under the law.
We will continue last week's conversation on the Racial tension in St. Louis and Ferguson in the wake of the killing of Michael Brown and how it is currently polarizing the City of St. Louis and creating anxiety in the community. Does this struggle for justice by the Black community today reflect the struggles of the Jim Crow south. Is the Justice system in St. Louis determined to follow Justice Tanner in the Missouri case of Dred Scott by holding that a Black Man has no rights that a White man is bound to respect. Join us as we talk about the grand jury, other events and how this tragedy has stirred the world and especially the Youth to call for Justice and further highlights the need for "Unity in the community"
Our guest will include Ferguson based attorney's Jerryl Christmas and Athil Muhammad along with disaster preparedness expert Saddiqq Muhammad.
Ferguson and St. Louis have a history of racial oppression much like most of America. Racial Profiling and discrimination have been common practice in the Gateway City. Some commentators have referred to St. Louis as the New Mississippi. Is this a fair depiction? Join us for this episode as we talk about some of this history and also speak with our guest local Ferguson attorney Jerryl Christmas and other Ferguson based community activist and residents of the surrounding areas as we discuss this community, in the wake of the killing of Mike Brown. We will further discuss how this tragedy has stirred the world and especially the Youth to call for Justice and further highlights the need for "Unity in the community"
The Dr. Kim Show...Racial Profiling and Legal ethics in America! Today in the studio... it is the time for us, each in America, to change the world. We have the power within ourselves to do what must be done to make tomorrow a better day. I write these words as a call to all peoples to see themselves, find their personal light, and shine brightly. God did not create mankind for hate, destruction, and separation. God is now calling us, each of us, to inspire the change in the world that is needed. We must unite! We must stand together as one family! There is only one race…the HUMAN RACE!

The Washington Red***** is the name of an NFL football team. Established in 1932, the Washington team has been an NFL mainstay for 82 years, winning multiple championships, including three Super Bowls. The name Red****, however, has been a source of contention with many Native Americans who consider the word a racial slur. The challenges to the name, documented as early as the 1960's, have recently come to a head in Blackstone v. Pro-Football, Inc., in which a group of Native Americans sued under Section 2(a), 15 USC sect 1052(a), which is a part of the Lanham Act, resulting in the cancellation of 6 of the Red**** registered trademarks. The Red**** appealed to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, alleging that section 2(a) is, among other things, an unconstitutional content-based restriction in violation of the First Amendment.
