    Dixon D. White on "White Racial Responsibility" & Racial Healing

    in Politics Progressive

    Quite often, there are people who can be described as "a person for a time such as this."  

    Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Teddy Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and so many others come to mind. Looking back on the context of their times in history, we loft them into super human statuses and forget that they were born like the rest of us and they have died like we all will.

    What unites all of these names from our history is the common trait that they had the courage to stand up, speak up and "ACT UP!!"

    That last phrase Act Up comes from our featured guest for this episode of The #SocialSpitballShow.

    Dixon D. White is a self-described redneck and reformed racist. Dixon has many experiences to draw from to elicit truth about race, which is, in part, that we cannot ignore it away. Dixon calls on fellow White Americans to embrace their "White Racial Responsibility" to speak up and ACT UP when they see racial hurt.

    I personally love the term "Act Up" because it makes me think of a child misbehaving, but also the clever bumper sticker that says that "Well-Behaved Women Never Make History." It's true & fitting because we need to step outside of our "comfort zone" of complacency and condoning of a terrible history of racism and violence in this country.

    This history of racism and violence manifests itself as much today as in the past. Racism is not over. We need to stand up to racism. With courageous folks like Dixon White speaking up and acting up on the subject, we can be sure to bring more healing and common ground.

    Won't you tune in and hear from this amazing & inspiring man and others like him? Barbara and I are excited to get this conversation going...

    "Help4Men Radio Special" Racial Profiling Against Black Men in America

    in US Government

    Every African-American male in this country who drives a vehicle, or has traveled by bus or plane, either knowingly or unknowingly has been the victim of racial profiling by law enforcement officials. Indeed, African-American males are disproportionately targeted, stopped, and searched by law enforcement officials based on race and gender. Those responsible for enforcement of public laws view African-American males as criminals. Unfortunately, the American justice system has condoned, supported, and in some instances encouraged such actions by law enforcement officials to stop, arrest, prosecute, and incarcerate African-American males. On the basis of race and gender, governmental officials have devised a profile of the typical criminal: black and male.


    The term driving while black has been used to describe the practice of law enforcement officials to stop African-American drivers without probable cause. The practice particularly targets African-American males. African-American males are not only singled out while driving, but also while schooling, eating, running for political office, walking, banking, serving as a juror, getting a taxi, shopping, and just being black and a male. The mere fact of being black and male in America is sufficient cause for governmental and private law enforcement officials to abridge the rights of African-American males. This is not to suggest that law enforcement officers can never consider race when performing their job. Just the opposite, where a witness identifies the race and gender of a suspect, it is relevant evidence to consider in an effort to apprehend a criminal. Racial profiling, however, involves a pre-disposition held by law enforcement officers who are members of the majority, to believe that minorities, and particularly African-American males, are engaged in criminal activities; therefore, they are stopped and searched without probable cause or reasonable suspicion.

    "Help4Men Radio Special" Equal Justice Initiative A HISTORY OF RACIAL INJUSTICE

    in US Government

    Our nation’s prison population has more than quintupled,” she said. “And this is due largely to the war on drugs and the ‘get tough’ movement. The drug war has been waged almost exclusively in poor communities of color even though studies have consistently shown now for decades that contrary to popular belief, people of color are no more likely to use or sell illegal drugs than whites, but by waging this drug war almost exclusively in poor communities of color, we’ve now created a vast new racial under-caste.”


    One hundred and fifty years after the Emancipation Proclamation, the progress made by African-Americans is undeniable–which is why statistics about incarceration in the black community can be so shocking. In 2011 there were more African-Americans in prison or “under the watch” of the justice system than were enslaved in the United .

    in Culture

    Special guest, Herman King, joins Anastasia and Jack as they introduce a new track for their Possible Society In Motion Radio Show with this program; a format with special guests, designed to help bring the embryonic success of the New Horizons' Coffee House Conversations On Race Relations in Frederick, to this online radio show.


    Featuring guests who are already becoming actively involved participants and supporters of the Coffee House Conversations on Race Relations series in Frederick, Maryland, this program addition will take the local conversation beyond that geographical confine with the hope that the renewed vitality of community involvement and unity developing there can spread to other communities. 


    Special programs will feature guests who will bring distinctive commentary from their unique perspectives and experiences in moving beyond local polarization within a community that is beginning to shift out of stagnation and into "motion" to heal the wounds of stereotyping, racism and police brutality. 


    Join Anastasia and Jack as they set this new track in motion with special guest, Herman King. To introduce this new format, Anastasia, Jack and Herman discuss the "how" and "how not" of conversations on race relations.

    The Council on Foreign Relations and the coming New World Order

    in Education

    The Council on Foreign Relations was founded in 1921 by Edward Mandell House, the chief advisor of President Woodrow Wilson from 1913 until 1921.   House was a Marxist whose goal was to socialize the United States.   In 1912, House wrote the book "Philip Dru: Administrator" in which he stated that he was working for "Socialism as dreamed of by Karl Marx." In this book, House laid out a plan for the conquest of America, telling how both the Democratic and Republican Parties would be controlled and used as instruments in the creation of a socialistic government. And he asked for the establishment of a state-controlled central bank.  Both of these were proposed in "The Communist Manifesto".   In 1913, during the very first year of the House-dominated Wilson Administration, both of these proposals became law. The Federal Reserve Act was passed, which brought into power a private central bank to create the money of the United States, taking this power away from the united States Congress. And the 16th Amendment to the United States Constitution, the graduated income tax as proposed by Karl Marx, was also ratified. 


    President Clinton (US President 1993-2001) was a member of both the Trilateral Commission and the CFR, but his running mates in the democratic primaries were strictly forbidden to use this fact while campaigning against him; this is a clear indication of the awesome power that the CFR has over politicians.  In the China Gate scandal, Bill Clinton sold top secret military technology to China.
