SORT BY Relevancy
It's been a long and tough week with the Ray Rice saga currently casting a dark cloud over the NFL. After months of mishandling by the NFL, the Baltimore Ravens and the media covering this story, Rice has finally been cut from his now former team and suspended indefinitely by the Commissioner Roger Goodell. Why did it take nearly four months from the original, ludicrous suspension of merely two games for jsutice to be served?
I explain why the NFL, Roger Goodell and multiple reporters throughout the country should be burned at the stake over this insane display of stupidity.
To make matters more detestable, the NBA faces yet another case of organizational racism, this time from general manager of the Atlanta Hawks Danny Ferry. After the Donald Sterling saga, one would hope that the issue of race would no longer harm the landscape of the sport. Sadly, Mr. Ferry and the Hawks proved this week that this is not just an organizational issue, but a league-wide issue.

“In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Mo., where a young man was killed, and a community was divided,”President Obama addressing the UN 24 September 2014
On this episode of the ::ANSWERS:: show, we discuss "Racism in the Media."
The media plays a critical role as a major institution in society. Primarily speaking, their goal is to provide the masses with definitions about who we are as a people while reinforcing our values and norms. They give us concrete examples of what happens to those who transgress these norms; and most importantly, they perpetuate certain ways of seeing the world and peoples within that world. This immeasurable amount of power to shape how we think is both a gift and most certainly a curse.
The media is arguably responsible for the negative image it portrays of people of color. Have you ever noticed how the media portrays a person of color convicted of a crime versus a white person? Well, we have and we're going to talk about it.

Racism is real. We can look the other way. We can pray for change. We can try not to talk it up too much. That's how we can all get by. But what if we want to do a little more in our lifetime? What if we want to leave a slightly better world for our children? What if we just want to live in a better world for ourselves and our own quality of life? What if we just want to LIVE?
We're going to address this topic from a historical point of view, a present day point of view and lastly - a future point of view. I promise you it's going to be a really good show.
Make sure you show up and the chat room is going to be HOT!
While Barack Obama is one of the most well-known people on Earth, very little is known about his family and his origins. In his own books he was written glowingly about his father, Barack Obama, Sr., but his siblings have been a mystery. His brother, Mark Obama Ndesandjo, calls in to discuss his new book, "An Obama's Journey: My Odyssey of Self-Discovery Across Three Cultures," where he describes his childhood in Kenya, his pained relationship with his father and his interactions with the 44th president of the United States.

War and the Obama derangement syndrome
September 27th, 2014
To be clear, I completely disagree with President Obama going to war with ISIS / ISIL. In fact I believe we have been conned into war and I have written several blog posts about that (here,here,here,here).
Everyone who disagree with President Obama’s action should speak out against it and try to force our politicians to do what is right. Just like many of us spoke out against President Bush’s illegal war in Iraq, we must speak out against this unnecessary war.
That said, America is one nation. Most on the Right, Left, and Middle gave President Bush the legitimacy the world needed to see even in disagreement. Unfortunately, President Obama is unable to get this legitimacy from the other side.
What is ironic is that the President has acquiesced to the military industrial complex. The President has acquiesced to the neocons. The President has acquiesced to the Republicans. So why can he not get the needed support overtly? This is the Obama derangement syndrome. It throws rational thought out the door. GOP Congressman Doug Lamborn’s (R-CO) attack on the President is the latest case.
What are your thoughts? Let’s talk. I will also be following our hash-tag #PoliticsDoneRight on Twitter.

Tonight, we talked about personal choice vs socialism and progressivism. Some say people in poverty are trapped because of the circumstances society places on them. I say people choose their own destiny, and personal choice is our way out. We also discussed President Obama's "Sloppy Salute," Hispanics and their voting trends in Texas and the need to constantly screen for the best government employees. No government job is guaranteed for life.
