  • Police Brutality and Racial Profiling

    in Current Events

    The stories are becoming all too familiar - Oscar Grant, John Crawford III, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, and many others whose names don't make national headlines.  #BlackLivesMatter has become the cry of the African-American community as the lives of young Black men and women are taken at the hands of police while unarmed.  Why are people of color stopped, searched, arrested, and killed in disproportionate numbers compared to their Caucasian counterparts?  How can unarmed "suspects" such as John Crawford III or Oscar Grant get shot on site when people who commit heinous acts - such as James Eagan Holmes who killed 12 and injured 70 in a crowded movie theatre - are arrested and given every benefit of the doubt?  Let's discuss it and find some real solutions beyond the hashtags.  Because of the nature of this subject matter, parental discresion is advised for children under 13.

    Trans Racial: The Rachel Dolezal Controversy

    in Entertainment

    Rachel Dolezal has brought a term to her pretending to be black controversy which caused her to have to resign her new position as leader of the NAACP in Spokane Washington. She has used the term Trans-Racial and speaks about her identity in similar terms as a transgender person does. She speaks of at the age of 5 years old coloring with the brown crayon instead of the peach crayon. She says that she "identifies" herself as a black woman and not a white woman.



    So what is trans-racial? 
    Is this a real term? Or did Ms. Dolezal just make it up?
    Can a Black person identify with being white even if they are very dark skinned?
    What are your thoughts on Rachel Dolezal?

    The Racial Divide: With “Southern Rites” Filmmaker, Gillian Laub

    in Culture

    Gillian Laub is a photographer/artist/filmmaker of the critically acclaimed HBO documentary, “Southern Rites”.  Gillian Laub first visited Mt. Vernon, Georgia, in 2002 to photograph the community’s segregated homecoming celebrations. Seven years later, after multiple visits to the area, the New York Times Magazine ran a photo essay, “A Prom Divided,” that documented Georgia’s Montgomery County High School’s racially segregated prom. Not surprisingly, the series generated national outrage that lead to the integration of the proms.


    As the film unraveled, there became more to the intended story of this small town in Georgia…


    A 22 year old black man, Justin Patterson, was shot and killed by Norman Neesmith, a white man who was living nearby in Toombs County.  


    With continued tensions of racial divide, this tragedy changed the course of Gillian’s documentary. 


    On this episode, we’re going to sit down with Gillian Laub to discuss her amazing film, “Southern Rites” and what she sees as a future for this country when it comes to the Racial Divides that affect us nationwide, and not just in the south. 


    Join us on Wednesday, June 24, 2015 at 8:00pm PST/10:00pm CST/11:00pm EST. 


    We invite you to listen by phone and comment by calling (646)200-3148.  Or listen online and join the chatroom conversation here on Blog Talk Radio, or from the Hot Topics Talk Radio website at www.hottopicstalkradio.com/hottopicstalkradio.

    Elijah Hamilton on "Abolishing the System of White Supremacy" & Racial Healing

    in Politics Progressive

    We at The Social Spitball Show always seek to share the truth in stories and perspectives that are not being shared by the national and even regional or local media. Racism in the United States of America has a long history and there are those that seek a "post-racist" America. Our featured guest for this show is one of the leaders in those efforts.


    Elijah Hamilton, a native Californian & Oakland resident, describes himself as a freelance antiracism educator. In one particular video, Elijah, a white American, describes "Why Most White People Don't Speak Out Against Racism" (also the title of the video). You can find this video and others at his YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/AntiRacistUnity/videos. Elijah can also be found on Facebook and on Twitter using the handle AntiRacistUnity.


    In his videos on this YouTube channel and through videos and posts on Facebook & Twitter, he seeks to educate the masses on the misconceptions that have been drilled into our heads for generations. Elijah, like many smart anti-racist activists & educators, says that we need not spend so much time on individual racists, but to work to take down the Racist System in America.


    As he said in a recent Tweet, "One of the problems with white liberals is that we often care more about proving we're good people, than we do about abolishing the system of white supremacy." That's why more white folks need to stand up and speak out for our sisters and brothers of color, in order to move our nation forward together.


    This is the third in our Racial Healing shows. There is plenty to talk about. It is a very important show and should be a great one!!


    Let's KEEP the conversation going...

    FREEDOM’S GATE: Juneteenth and Rachel Dolezal's trans-racial dilemma

    in Politics

    Friday marks the 150th anniversary of the landing of Union soldiers at Galveston, Texas, with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free.  The annual celebration Juneteenth was launched to celebrate the end of slavery and the Civil War in the United States.


    This June 19 the nation and blacks may be confronting a new type of end of slavery, thanks to former Spokane, Wash., NAACP president, Rachel Dolezal.


    Dolezal’s decision to change her race from white to black may actually bring an official end to racial hyphenation and ethnic designation in America. And that is something to celebrate


    Join host Kevin Fobbs with his guests Lonnie Poindexter, managing director of the Freedom’s Journal Institute, director of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE), in Washington, D.C., and host of the nationally syndicated Freedom’s Journal Radio Show and nationally syndicated radio host Kenneth McClenton.

    Examining Racial Bias in America

    in Health

     Racism can be defined as views, practices and actions reflecting the belief that humanity is divided into distinct biological groups called races and that members of a certain race share certain attributes which make that group  less desirable, more desirable, inferior or superior. The exact definition of racism is controversial both because there is little scholarly agreement about the meaning of the concept "race", and because there is also little agreement about what does and doesn't constitute discrimination. Some definitions would have it that any assumption that a person's behavior would be influenced by their racial categorization is racist, regardless of whether the action is intentionally harmful or pejorative. Other definitions only include consciously malignant forms of discrimination. Racism include discriminatory behaviors and beliefs based on cultural, national, ethnic, caste, or religious stereotypes. The practice of treating certain groups preferentially, or denying rights or benefits to certain groups, based on racial characteristics is termed “institutional racism”. Stokely Carmichael of the “Black Panthers Movement” is credited for coining the phrase institutional racism in the late 1960s. He defined the term as “the collective failure of an organization to provide an appropriate and professional service to people because of their color, culture or ethnic origin”.
