In the first hour, Dariaanne will speak with the multi-talented and highly accomplished Alexandra Swann, author of several books including her latest release, The Planner:
Once a top-producing real estate agent with a successful business and a beautiful home, Kris Mitchell is a victim of the economic downturn. She has lost her home to foreclosure, and her long-time boyfriend has married someone else. Then, just when she has almost given up hope for a better future, an opportunity presents itself for her to become a Level 1 Planner for a newly created federal agency that will implement the Retire America Act of 2013. After persuading her own aging parents to sign over all of their assets, Kris learns that the government’s plan to confiscate the wealth and property of America’s retirees in exchange for lifelong care in the Smart Seniors community has some serious downsides.
In the second hour, the Right-Wing Riot returns with the scary smart Jamie K. Wilson, the mysterious and alluring Ms. Always Right, and Griff Griffis, who IS the Prince of Whitebread. It will be a regular feature due to popular demand.

The Dallas 6 are Andre Jacobs, Anthony Kelly, Anthony Locke, Duane Peters, Derrick Stanley and my son Carrington Keys. These men were all in the Restricted Housing Unit (RHU) at SCI Dallas in Dallas, PA. RHU, SMU and many other acronyms are used to describe solitary confinement but what it really is, is the modern day dungeon. Men are placed in a single 6x9 cell supposedly for 23 hrs a day but mostly for 24 hours a day. It is a tool used to break the spirits of men and women and it is mostly used as retaliation. Inside solitary, black brown and mental ill are abused.
Dallas 6 were both witnesses and victims of abuse which they reported to HRC. After witnessing the torture of fellow prisoners, Dallas 6 were promised they were next and in order to protect themselves from further abuse, they barricaded their doors and covered their cell windows. When the guards asked them to remove the covering, they asked for outside intervention. Instead of outside intervention, the guards dressed in riot gear and beat, tased, pepper, sprayed and teargassed the guys, then extracted them and left them in cages for hours some up to 12 hours. Initially the charge was a disciplinary misconduct for refusing to obey an order. 4 months later in retaliation the charge became riot. 4 years later they are still in court for the bogus charges.

If you're from Baltimore or anywhere else for that matter, then you are all too familiar with the crab mentality or crabs in a bucket syndrome. No matter what you are trying to do, promote and build, there always seems to be that "If I can't have it neither can you" mentality. People will attempt to pull down, knock down, drag down, negate or diminish the importance of your efforts, progress and ambition. Then sometimes when people see what you're doing they think they can do it better and try to copycat or steal your originality. A story a local Baltimore rapper can relate to all too well. Tune in as we talk about what it's like being a rapper in Baltimore, the struggles, the beefs, the success and his game plan or making it big. Call in to share in on the conversation at (347) 855-8637. Show starts at 7PM Est. Don't forget to subscribe to Social Riot Radio via Itunes Podcast and Stitcher Radio!

Who are the Dallas 6?
At SCI Dallas (PA), after a series of abuses at the hands of corrections officials, some prisoners housed in the solitary confinement unit decided they had enough and decided to stage a protest in response to the inhumane conditions and mistreatment of prisoners. They decided it was time to do something about the inhumane conditions, immediately, before another prisoner dies or is brutally harmed. Each prisoner involved in the protest is now collectively referred to as the Dallas 6. They are Andre Jacobs, Anthony Locke, Anthony Kelly, Carrington Keys, Duane Peters and Derrick Stanley.
On April 28th 2010, prisoner Isaac Sanchez was subjected to a planned attack by the Restrictive Housing Unit (RHU) staff, forcibly removed from his cell and brutally beaten by officers in riot gear. Sanchez was subject to this attack as a result of speaking out against the abuse at Dallas prison on behalf of his fellow comrades. After being told they were next, Dallas 6 barricaded themselves in for protection and covered their cell windows. They asked for outside intervention but instead were beaten, electroshocked and peppersprayed. They filed complaints against the DOC and 3 months later, in retaliation, they were charged with riot.
As revealed in the Human Rights report, there has long been a policy within the prison walls of Dallas and the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections (DOC) to operate a corrupt administration under an iron wall of silence. The DOC, State Police, DA's office work in conjunction to railroad these men. On January 21, 2014 these men are facing trial for these bogus charges. There is a campaign underway to dismiss the charges and I am reaching out for awareness and support.
If you saw Our America With Lisa Ling this past Thursday, I will be talking to one of the the guest on the show and that I would consider a long distance friend of mine. With National HIV Testing Day on June 27th, this would be the perfect time to discuss the epidemic of HIV. Bringing the awareness of HIV/AIDS is one of those things that always will need to be discussed and kept on the forefront. Though people are getting tested and wearing condoms there has still be in a rise in HIV/AIDS cases. Tune in for this important interview!
