SORT BY Relevancy
Racism w/guests Jovan Mackenzy, T Deimaris Barlow, & Erick Rose
Racism has exsisted for a very long time throughout history in the world, and here in America we have a part of our History during the times of slavery where black men and women were treated as less then human. We would like to think we have come along way since those days but have we? While racism has never truly gone away in our country and most likely will always be around in some form until the Lord returns, over the last year or so we have seen an increase of this or at least it seems as an increase now that with social media videos and photos can quickly travel in minutes if not seconds. Allowing everyone to see acts of racism much more then may have possibly been seen without the internet and access to video cameras at the touch of our fingertips on just about every phone that someone may have.
My prayer for this show is to really talk about this issue of racism and what we are seeing our country. Talking about the police, black on black crime, repsonses from white people, racial profiling, the sin of racism, and what we can do better as Christians to enagage and respond to the sin of racism and show the world how to deal with this issue from a biblical worldview. While at the same time not minimizing the hurt, pain and anger felt by those who have been on the negative side of racism because of the color of their skin.
In the definition of “racism”, the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, to distinguish it as superior to another race is primary. Prejudice, discrimination, and antagonism directed against someone of a darker hue based on the belief that one's own race is superior has dominated the behavior of many Americans in the United States.
Racism has existed throughout human history- hatred of one person by another because of skin color, language and customs influenced wars, promotion of slavery and the formation of nations. When Portuguese sailors first explored Africa in the 15th century, they came upon empires and cities as advanced as their own and they considered Africans to be serious rivals. Over time, as European powers began to plunder the continent and forcibly remove its inhabitants to work as slave laborers in new colonies across the Atlantic, Africans came to be seen as a deficient "species," as "savages." This view was necessary to justify the slave trade at a time when Western culture had begun to promote individual rights and human equality.
Black people are seen by racists as merely subhuman, more like beasts than men. American scientists and philosophers devised a false racial "science" to "prove" the supremacy of non-Jewish whites. While the Nazi annihilation of Jews discredited most of these supposedly scientific efforts to elevate one race over another, small numbers of scientists and social scientists have continued throughout the 20th century to argue the inborn shortcomings of certain races, especially Black people. What may seem to be significant "racial" differences to some people - skin color, hair, facial shape - are not of scientific significance.

Generally speaking, discussions on race in America have been approached with a "rear-view" perspective as if racism is currently a non-existent thing of the past. There is no denying Amierca has a race problem. Current events have proven race issues are widespread and on the verge of going completely out of control as incidents in Ferguson, MO, NYC and Virginia have shown. In this Gospel Talk episode, Mona Austin takes a look at mounting race-related crimes that have occured in the US over the last year.
Showtime 8AM-10AM EST
Events in our recent past has once again brought this ugly topic back to the headlines and studios of the mainstream media outlets. It seems everyone from the President of the United States to the person sleeping under a bridge is either a racist or a victim of racism. Every day somewhere (just about everywhere) we hear of gatherings of people screaming and committing criminal acts in protest of unfair justice and "slave-like" treatment.
Preachers, politicians, community organizers and more continue to use racism as a tool in their war chest to further advance their own existence.
This topic really has us all "In the Pickle Barrel"!

Racism is wrong and all should stand against it. Those that are bold and couragous will be attacked severely. This country supports those that want to keep the system of white supremacy going. Anyone that dare take a stand against it is viewed as a enemy. It doesn't matter what race you are just don't buck the system.
In Michigan, just a few days ago, a young man in a suburb of Detroit captured a video of bullies taunting him and calling him nigger as they rode the bus to a concert. The students responsible for the taunting were suspended, but the mother of the victim and some other supporters think that their should be a more harsh penalty. Unfortunately, the situation may not hold a lot of weight in the way of racial intimidation. But, why is that?

Today on "It's My House" we shall discuss "racism" and ask the question "How Is Racism Hold You Back ?".
Just for the record racism is:
NOT holding anyone back from starting a business.
NOT preventing anyone from buying a house.
Not stopping anyone from getting as much education as the please.
Not preventing anyone from traveling anywhere that they want on the planet.
Not preventing you from being happy.
Not preventing anyone from empowering themselves.
The only power that racism has is what U ALLOW IT to have in your life.
Racism exist............BUT SO WHAT !
Does it seem like racism in America has increased since the election of Barak Obama as President of the United States in 2008? Well, it certainly seems so. What is it like to be Black in today's "post- racial" America? We'll be discussing that and more today, along with some awesome political poetry pieces on Eddie Caine Radio.
