    The U.S. Presidents & Slavery

    in Culture

    On this show we are discussing “The U.S. Presidents and Slavery”.  This is a good time for this discussion since "Presidents Day" just passed.

    “Schools across the country are adorned with posters of the 44 U.S. presidents, children’s books put students on a first-name basis with the presidents, and U.S. history textbooks describe the accomplishments and challenges of the major presidential administrations.

    “But while these books engage students and readers with stories of the presidents’ accomplishments and challenges, stories of their dogs in the Rose Garden or childhood escapades, there is no mention that more than 1-in-4 U.S. presidents were involved in human trafficking and slavery. These presidents bought, sold and bred enslaved people for profit. Of the 12 presidents who were enslavers, more than half kept people in bondage at the White House.”

    Will They Go Extinct Next? The Project to End Great Ape Slavery

    in Environment

    We are at a critical point where so many species are on the brink of extinction. Primates are one of the endangered species that are hunted for food and captured for exploitation. Great apes – chimpanzees, bonobos, gorillas and orangutans – are in great demand in Middle Eastern and East Asian safari parks, zoos and private menageries. Most shocking is the fact that corrupt national CITES officials in several countries are deeply involved in the trafficking. Many die en route to the transit cities, packed in between other illicit products, they suffocate, starve to death, or their little throats dry up whilst calling for help which never arrives.  It's a journey through Hell, to slavery, to a life behind bars. It is a life sentence for a crime which they have never committed. In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host June Stoyer talks to wildlife photographer and environmental advocate, Karl Ammann, about this crisis and what we can do to protect all primates.  Today's show is brought to you by Eden Foods the most trusted name in certified organic clean food!

    Athletes in all sports are engaging in behaviors that baffle the average fan because of their celebrity status, wealth and privilege to earn a living playing a game. Why does the apology matter and should it matter? Are we placing too much responsibility on athletes as role models? Do we expect them to not be human beings because of their position in life? These are some of the questions we tackle on this week's episode and more from the world of sports such as Freshmen ineligibility in NCAA Football and Basketball. Plus, EMOtional Rescue with Emmett Berry. Tune in...We look forward to sharing Sunday evening with you!
