SORT BY Relevancy
Atlanta's WSB-TV reported Monday that Hawks minority owner Michael Gearon wrote a letter to Levenson calling for Ferry's resignation or firing. Gearon's letter, which is dated June 12 and can be read here, included an account of Ferry's comment about Luol Deng, an unrestricted free agent at the time who was born in South Sudan.
With respect to one potential free agent, a highly-regarded African-American player and humanitarian, Ferry talked about the player's good points, and then went on to describe his negatives, stating that he "has a little African in him. Not in a bad way, but he's like a guy who would have a nice store out front but sell you counterfeit stuff out of the back." Ferry completed the racial slur by describing the player (and impliedly, all persons of African descent) as a two-faced liar and cheat.
We were appalled that anyone would make such a racist slur under any circumstance, much less the GM of an NBA franchise on a major conference call. One of us can be heard on the tape reacting with astonishment. Our franchise has a long history of racial diversity and inclusion that reflects the makeup of our great city. Ferry's comments were so far out of bounds that we are concerned that he has put the entire franchise in jeopardy.
For his part, Johnson said, referring to a disturbing racially tinged conversation Sterling was said to have had with a female friend that was made public by the gossip website TMZ, “If the reports are true, there needs to be strong and swift action taken.”

Using a new microphone, Dr Jonas, your host, discusses Back to School issues seen by Family Physicians, in Ohio. After reflecting on August and September in the office, he gets philosophical (no surprise) about the role of the Family Physician including some comments about clinical decision through the patient-physician "human" relationship.
He floats through a few Tweets on Twitter before reading part of the AFP Community blog by Jennifer Middleton, MD about the role of the Family Physician.
At the end he plays the banjo a few notes and sings parts of a couple songs he wrote as a way of testing the new microphone.

Today on Coffee with Conrad
Welcome to the Wednesday edition of the jrilshow! Tonight we are asking you all, "Are you a borderline racist if________________?" Plus tonight in the Lounge we will be celebrating the birthday of the King of Pop!!!! Come on and get your laugh on tonight on the jrilshow!!!!!!
Many throw the word "racist" around at the drop of a hat. While extreme racist, will embody it and the Al Sharpton's of the world will call them out, there is a class of people who get confused. Can you make an "off-color" joke and not be called out for it based on ignorance? Some may think its funny. Many others will hit the roof because of the offense. What if you don't understand? Should people just "lighten up?"
Is this racist? The Life Full Circle Radio staff heard this questions a lot this week. So much so that we decided to make it a part of the Life Full Circle Radio conversation this week. What makes something racist? What is the difference between racist and not knowing? Where is the line between racist and stereotypes?
To help us answer these questions we will have Dr. Jeffri Anne Wilder on as our guest to help us maneuver through these social land mines.
Join Miguel Lloyd and your favorite Life Full Circle Staff This Saturday At 10am and join the conversation.

Michael Coard — lawyer, activist, teacher — on defending the bad guys, fixing the city’s court system, hating on hip-hop, and forever changing the way you see George Washington
Criminal defense attorney Michael Coard is in constant motion. One minute he's involved in a high-profile cop-murder case; the next, he's hosting a radio show on WURD; then he's off to teach a hip-hop music course at Temple. His biggest project of late? Fighting the National Park Service to reinterpret American history. A North Philly kid who once dreamed of a baseball career, Coard harbors the highest hopes for his hometown even as his work keeps him ensconced in our city's underbelly. Over lunch at Butcher & Singer, we talked about why he does it all, and where he draws inspiration.
