SORT BY Relevancy
Do you feel like people, of all races, are quick to pull the race card? Are Caucasians too sensitive when Blacks choose to celebrate their culture? Are Blacks too sensitive when Caucasians don't acknowledge them on a level that they acknowledge themselves? Will there ever be an equal playing field?
Join us, Thursday, February 11th at 10 PM, as we discuss these issues on Grown Folk Talk Radio.
Odell Beckham of the New York Giants was suspended a game after repeated altercations with members of the Carolina Panthers. After, reports said that Beckham was subjected to gay slurs before the game and ex-players said the receiver has been subjected to such slurs all season.
The matter was dropped at Beckham's appeal but many questions remain. Were slurs used? How frequently" Why were they not brought up at the hearing? What is it about such slurs that allow them to still carry a lot of weight in sports?
We also look back at the year in LGBT sports.
Just when we thought the rederick had reached it's boiling point, Donald Trump suggests that we ban all Muslims from entering the country. As ridiculous as this seems, he has supporters. How have we reached a point where we label all Muslims as terrorists? How far have we really come as a society? Racial profiling still exists yet we're encouraged to just tolerate it. How can we move beyond the hashtags and make real change in our society? We will talk about this on Justified Madness this week.

Some say, "what you don't know, can't hurt you." Do you know your rights? What should you do if you are ever stopped or approached by a law enforcement officer? Racial tension is growing in America largely because of the media coverage of black males being killed by white police officers. However, there is more to the story than us outsiders actually know...until now!

This week the internet has been on fire with various thoughts about Beyonce's video, "Formation". This video presents many powerful images that Black philosophers past and present have their own interpretation. Using the imagery from the video as a starting point join me Zhe Levels Scott, as I discuss the philsophy of the proponents of Black Nationalism vs Integration, Self Determination, Collective Economics, and Racial Pride.
Some of the writings and art discussed will be from Marcus Garvey, W.E.B Dubois, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Dick Gregory, Tavis Smiley, Spike Lee, Ida B. Wells, Fredrick Douglas and more. Please join me in this most vital discussion about philosophy and the struggle.
It is no secret that today we are living during a time of unrest, racial injustice, war, police brutality, social and economic inequalities, a rise in the suicide rate and the list goes on and on. We are challenged daily to pray, believe that things will get better and hold on to our faith. Many rely on God to make sense of the chaos while others are on the verge of giving up hope. Life is a journey with ups and downs, hills and valleys, success and disappointments.
On February 13, 2016 join ASWIFTT RADIO host Brenda Johnson Padgitt as she talks with Pastor Adrian Simmons about how to hold on to your faith when all hell breaks loose. The discussion will encourage and offer practical suggestions while coming from scripture. There will be times when life gets hard and our circumstances are magnified. The enemy has a way of making things seem more drastic than they really are. The famous acronym FEAR means False Evidence Appearing REAL is the best example that demonstrates how Satan attempts to disturb and frustrate us. The enemy wants us to believe temporary circumstances are permanent. He ultimately wants us to suffer despair and lose all hope.
