SORT BY Relevancy
Racism In Maine, I will discuss my journey living in small town America. I will discuss positive ways to deal with the stress of living in a pressure cooker where you see beautiful trees mountains & skys, but underneath it all is serious lack of respect for anything or anyone that is not white or orginally from this part of Northern Maine. Aroostook County.
Being Black or Native American in Maine, your elected officials become your enemy's in a effort to keep their constituents happy. Federal dollars are not spend fairly & adequetly.

Gun Control & Historical Racism
As Black Americans we must realize that gun control laws, from a historical perspective, serve one purpose, to keep us vulnerable and more easily oppressed. This is not conjecture or rhetoric, it is easily documented fact.
Join us, Alex Primo and Asha Zuri, Thursday October 8th at 9 PM EST as we explore the way America sought to disarm Melanated individuals across the land as part of a ruthless plot to control, intimidate, and in many cases murder innocent slaves and freed men alike.
Brendan O’Neill of the Guardian notes:
Throughout the 1800's, states passed gun-control laws that were fundamentally racist. So, panicked by the prospect of more black rebellions against white landowners, the North Carolina Supreme Court passed a statute in 1840 that said: “If any free negro, mulatto, or free person of color shall wear or carry about his or her person, or keep in his or her house, any shotgun, musket, rifle, pistol, sword, dagger or bowie-knife… he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and may be indicted therefore.”
In 1941, a judge in Florida’s Supreme Court called the laws into question when he overturned the conviction of a black man for carrying a handgun without a permit. He overturned the conviction, he said, because this law “was passed for the purpose of disarming the negro laborers … and to give the white citizens in sparsely settled areas a better feeling of security. The statute was never intended to be applied to the white population and in practice has never been so applied.”
All of this plus brother Dennis Jefferson will be dropping by with another fantastic episode of Healthy Matters.

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.
Racism or Realism: Defining the Black Power Movement
Gonzo After Dark host, Kno Betta, examines "racism" as a definition for explaining the difficulties African Americans have had on the road to empowerment. It is often given as the reason for police brutality, profiling, why blacks don't get the best jobs, or why they are passed over for promotions. It explains the gaps in education, the widening economic divide, and a multitude of other differences in the black community. Or does it? Kno Betta compares the implications of defining the American Black experience along racial lines verses a broader struggle for power and hedge money.
