    O Ye Drybones : government sponsored segregation THE KERNER COMMISSION

    in Current Events

    In Baltimore in 1910, a black Yale law school graduate purchased a home in a previously all-white neighborhood,The Baltimore city government reacted by restricting African Americans to designated blocks. Explaining the policy, Baltimore’s mayor proclaimed, “Blacks should be quarantined in isolated slums in order to reduce the incidence of civil disturbance, to prevent the spread of communicable disease into the nearby White neighborhoods, and to protect property values among the White majority.”Thus began a century of federal, state, and local policies to quarantine Baltimore’s black population in isolated slums—policies that continue to the present day.In 1968, following hundreds of similar riots nationwide, a commission appointed by President Lyndon Johnson concluded that “[o]ur nation is moving toward two societies, one black, one white—separate and unequal” and that “[s]egregation and poverty have created in the racial ghetto a destructive environment totally unknown to most white Americans.” The Kerner Commission (headed by Illinois Governor Otto Kerner) added that “[w]hat white Americans have never fully understood—but what the Negro can never forget—is that white society is deeply implicated in the ghetto. White institutions created it, white institutions maintain it, and white society condones it.”When the Kerner Commission blamed “white society” and “white institutions,” it employed euphemisms to avoid naming the culprits everyone knew at the time. It was not a vague white society that created ghettos but government—federal, state, and local.In 1917, the U.S. Supreme Court found ordinances like Baltimore’s 1910 segregation rule unconstitutional, not because they abridged African Americans’ rights to live where they could afford, but because they restricted the property rights of (white) homeowners to sell to whomever.

    Author Sharnel Williams


    Living in the projects most of all my childhood life, made me appreciate life even more today. I was raised in Newark, NJ in three different projects, up to the age of seventeen. I would love to take you on my journey, from a child living in the projects to the woman that I have become. Here’s my story, reminiscing and growing up in the projects.


    Author Vanessa Santiago-Jerman


    20 floors and concrete walls, Manhattanville Projects is the place that I called my home for several years. Living in the projects was fun, challenging and definitely a learning experience. To the outside world we lived in the ghetto, the slums the hood, but I called it my home. Take a look into my life growing up as a young girl from the project into a woman, mother, wife and author that is a product of the projects I grew up in. The projects made me who I am today.

    John Carver Show - Handicapable (Nick Vujicic)

    in Self Help

    Nick Vujicic has touched, by some estimates, BILLIONS of lives around the world.  He was born without arms or legs and has gone from despair to making a difference.  On this show he is being interviewed by a Russian publication.  His theme: Being Handicapable.


    Here are some of his quotes from his books and speeches.:


    “If you can't get a miracle, become one.”


    “If I fail, I try again, and again, and again. If YOU fail, are you going to try again? The human spirit can handle much worse than we realize. It matters HOW you are going to FINISH. Are you going to finish strong?” 


    “It's a lie to think you're not good enough. It's a lie to think you're not worth anything.” 


    “Life isn't about having, it's about being. You could surround yourself with all that money can buy, and you'd still be as miserable as a human can be. I know people with perfect bodies who don't have half the happiness I've found. On my journeys I've seen more joy in the slums of Mumbai and the orphanages of Africa than in wealthy gated communities and on sprawling estates worth millions. Why is that? You'll find contentment when your talents and passion are completely engaged, in full force. Recognise instant self-gratification for what it is. Resist the temptation to grab for material objects like the perfect house, the coolest clothes or the hottest car. The if I just had X, I would be happy syndrome is a mass delusion. When you look for happiness in mere objects, they are never enough. Look around. Look within.” 


    “I never met a bitter person who was thankful. Or a thankful person who was bitter.” 


    “If I fail, I try again, and again, and again”

    Born and raised in the Bronx section of New York City, “Puma” grew up in what most will call “the slums” or popularly referred to as the Hood.  Just like a Phoenix, beauty rises from ashes. The Bronx created Hip Hop and Puma created his own understanding of Hip Hop culture through art forms known as graffiti. He was naturally talented, with influences and inspiration from some of the greats in Hip Hop and Black Popular culture, a tattoo artist christened young Paul to Puma.

    Motivational Monday - A Critical Look At The Foster Care System

    in Motivation

    In the mid 19th century, some 30,000 homeless or neglected children lived in New York City streets and slums. Charles Loring Brace, the founder of The Children's Aid Society, believed that there was a way to change the futures of these children. By removing youngsters from city streets and placing them in farm families, he thought they would have a chance of escaping a lifetime of suffering. He proposed that these children be sent by train to live and work on farms in the midwest and west. The resulting Orphan Train Movement lasted from 1853 to the early 1900s, and transported more than 120,000 children to new lives.


    Throughout its history, The Children’s Aid Society has remained on the front lines of foster care reform and advocacy. The Orphan Train Movement and the success of other Children's Aid initiatives led to a host of national child welfare reforms including child labor laws, adoption, foster care services, public education, the provision of health care, and nutrition and vocational training.


    Over 510,000 American children are in foster care, taken away when their families are in crisis and can’t take care of them. But there aren’t enough foster families to take them in. There isn’t enough money to provide them the things every child needs. There aren’t enough people to help them, mentor them, or to simply cheer them up and give them hope for the future.


    If nothing changes… by the year 2020:


    22,500 children will die of abuse or neglect, most before their fifth birthday
    More than 10.5 million children will spend some time in foster care
    More than 300,000 children will age out of our foster care system, some in poor health and many unprepared for success in higher education, technical college or the workforce
    75,000 former foster youth, who aged out of the system, will experience homelessness

    Live Stage:The best Reggae Music on the #1 Reggae Station Crs Radio

    in Music

    Background: Reggae - Around 1960, in the slums of Kingston Jamaica, where the local bands were playing a musical mixture of American R&B, Caribbean, and pan-African sounds, drummers began to emphasize the afterbeat, the 2nd and 4th beats (4/4 time) in unison with the piano and guitar while the bass played walking quarter notes. The musicians called the sound "Upside-down R&B". It soon became known as "Ska". As time passed Ska slowed the beat, lost it's brass sound and morphed into "Rocksteady", performed with fewer musicians and using more harmony vocals. Around 1968 the influences of Rastafari and Africanism along with political and social unrest in Jamaica gave birth to "Reggae", with a slower, stripped-down, less "Pop-like" sound often with accents added on the 3rd beat. Today the term "Reggae" applies broadly to all the Jamaican born music that contains the original afterbeat rhythm.

    From Darkness to Light: Monsters

    in Religion

    What if we told you that Monsters are very real - and they are among us? They have overrun the streets of the Ghettos and slums. Their reach extends to the gated communities of your suburban neighborhoods. They infest the schools attended by your children. Even at this very moment a Monster may be lurking in your own home. Monsters are vicious and cruel! Monsters are destructive and horrifyingly evil! Monsters are heartless and have an utter contempt for all life! Monsters do not show pity to old or young. Monsters do not fear the laws of God or Man. Monsters live by no code and respect no authority. Monsters cannot feel guilt or shame, nor can they feel sympathy or empathy. Monsters exist only to feed their own ungodly lust with no care for consequences. They attack on a whim. They harm others because they can. And they kill for fun! To see the faces of these Monsters, one need only tune in to your local news. From Gang violence to school shootings, rapes, robberies, murders and random acts of unprovoked violence – the generation of today’s youth have been transformed to the stuff of nightmares. The Holy Bible tells us that in the last days unclean women would give birth to Monsters! But how did this happen? When did it begin? And what enemy is to blame? Join us today for another installment of “From Darkness to Light” as we use the Word of the Holy Bible to expose the evil that has corrupted a generation, giving rise to our greatest fears.
