America has witnessed a war on masculinity over the past three decades perpetrated by well-intentioned over-parenting, the agenda-driven entertainment industry, dangerous political correctness, and deliberate political strategy.
The scourge of political correctness has seeped into every facet of American life and threatens to silence dissent, cow our leaders and weaken our military. Nowhere is this more apparent than the current social experimentation occurring on a regular basis in our armed forces—one of our last bastions of masculinity.

Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: "I will create a vicegerent on earth." They said: "Wilt Thou place therein one who will make mischief therein and shed blood?- whilst we do celebrate Thy praises and glorify Thy holy (name)?" He said: "I know what ye know not."
Violence. We see it on the web, the local and national news.
It seems that either literally or figuratively, we all are getting a taste of the “apple pie” that H-Rap Brown (aka Imam Jamil Al-Amin), spoke of years ago. Make no mistake; within the context of that particular observation, this is far from a sweet dessert, but a bitter acrid cider of devastation and despair.
The well-publicized acts of violence capture the dreaded imagination and hysterical fear of the populace, and the intellectualization of politicians, sociologists and a host of “intellectuals”.
Of particular concern today, is what appears to be a rise in violent behavior by black people, both men and women.
What has happened over time?
Are black people becoming more violent than ever, or are we (including this writer), unwitting victims of a press propaganda machine that disproportionately focuses on violent crimes committed by black people, thus giving others’ a “pass”?
Do the YouTube and Worldstarhiphop videos speak to a complete social, moral, cultural and spiritual breakdown of our community?
What about black women? Are the caricatures in the Madea movies or in in Martin Lawrence sitcoms just comedy, or what many presume are accurate depictions of a “strong” black woman?
What are the factors in our violent behavior? Poverty? Lack of fathers? Diet? Music? “Leaders” who only seem to be concerned when the violent offenders are white?
We want to review these points and more, this Saturday, November 15th, on Critical Discourse
When you have TV sitcoms that have the topicality (if that WASN'T a word, it is now) of A 70'S TV show, and the debate concerning those and later sitcoms with the old "Amos 'n' Andy" show, then throw in other non-related issues like LGBT and the St. Patrick's Day Parade and maybe a few other news-worthy or opinion-worhy topics, your host, "The Voice", is going to weigh in on SOMETHING. He could even be wrong somewhere on something and he'll welcome anyone to prove him so.

Countless TV fans fells in love with Jackée Harry as the hilariously sassy Sandra Clark on NBC’s 227 and Lisa Landry on The WB’s Sister, Sister. But having fun is just half of where it’s at for the comic icon. “I didn’t aim to be on TV. It happened by me studying and auditioning,” she tells Fresh Perspectives Radio host—and fellow Sister, Sister cast member—Rolonda Watts. “I was a history teacher and I wanted to be a great educator. My goal was to impart information to young kids—particularly young girls—to give them self-esteem and awareness when they go out into the world. I went to Long Island University, Brooklyn Center—right across from Junior’s,” adds Jackée, who works closely with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund and United Negro College Fund, while currently appearing in two sitcoms, Byron Allen’s The First Family and Disney Channel’s Girl Meets World. “I had a four-year Martin Luther King scholarship. I was a straight-A student. I was a brainiac! And after school I worked for the National Association of Black Social Workers. Then I did plays at night.”

Robert G. Lee is already known in the entertainment industry as Hollywood’s top warm-up comic. This veteran of 1,000 episodes of such shows as The New Adventures of Old Christine, Just Shoot Me, Becker and The Drew Carey Show is considered to be the reigning king in this very specialized profession. His job is to keep countless audiences entertained between scenes and costume and set changes with rapid-fire ad-libs and humorous interviews. As such, his razor sharp wit is always ready to have fun with, not make fun of any audience he encounters.
No stranger in front of the camera either, Robert has written, produced and starred in six stand up comedy specials and has been seen on the Bananas Comedy series, on Showtime’s The Joke’s On Thee, VH1’s Stand Up Spotlight, Comic Strip Live and a variety of roles on such sitcoms as Wings and Perfect Strangers.
Robert has combined his Christian world view with his Monty Python sensibility and written many Veggie Tales videos such as “Little Joe,” “Gideon” and “Sheerluck Holmes.”
In addition, Robert is a major contributor to Comedy Comes Clean - Volumes I and II and has written scripts for the popular kids video series, “3-2-1 Penguins.”
On top of everything else, for the past decade Robert has been weaving his humor together with serous Biblical insights as the Director of Drama at his home church, Bel Air Presbyterian.
