Feel free to join in on the conversation "live" at 646-915-9620 when we will be extrapolating the following issues: picking up where we left off from the last show, we attempt to answer the question regarding which agenda appears to be gaining more ground-Gay folks versus African-Americans in the realm of political access; our thoughts on the future of music while we are in the midst of June being Black Music Month; former Governor and famed wrestler/actor, Jesse Ventura during a recent interview, likened the current political party stalemate to American gang warfare and lastly, a growing controversy appears to be taking hold with a group of gay men who are suing the historical Black sorority known as the Alpha Kappa Alphas (AKAs) in an effort to join the female organization (?)....wow.
Its 2011 and depending on who you ask, minorities and poor people are in the worse shape they have been for over 100 years. Unemployment is over 15% for minorities, wages are not comparable across the races or genders, and the rich have become the super rich, gladly leaving the rest of the world behind. Right now, it as much a state of class warfare as it is still an issue of racism.
Well if we rewind about 60 years their were civil rights organiztions all over the south fighting for the rights of black people. Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, National Urban League, National Council of Negro Women, Alphas, Omegas, AKAs and of course the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People are just a few of the organizations that were instrumental in fighting for the rights that many Americans enjoy today. Civil rights advocates are doing less marching and more tweeting to get their message out. They are lobbying for more jobs in major media to fight for the rights of their constituents. But is it effective? What are the roles of todays minority civic and social organizations? Are they really still working to improve the lives of the people who need them most, or are they just glorified social clubs that do little to serve the communities from which they were born. Are todays civil rights and greek organizations still relevant?

THEN AT 10pm EST/7Pm PST a SNEAK PEAK at Eric Mayes!!!!
Virginia native and author, Eric Mayes graduated from Florida State University with a B.A. in hotel management and culinary arts. His thirst for knowledge led him on a one-way ticket to Los Angeles, California in hopes to pursue his career as a chef. After a number of failed attempts, he turned to voice-over work as a means to supplement his income during the day while being a club manager in the evening hours. On a dare, Eric entered an open mic contest telling stories of his past lifestyle being raised in the South. Though he did not win, Eric was complimented by many of his timing, delivery, and realistic anecdotes. After being invited back on several occasions, he decided that his career was being limited telling stories on stage; he chose to broaden his horizons by putting pen to paper.
TWO AKAS, TWO AGGRESSIVES TAKE YOU INTO THE WORLD OF BEING BLACK, LESBIAN & A MEMBER OF A GREEK-LETTER ORGANIZATION. JOIN US AS WE CANDIDLY DISCUSS THE INVISIBLE LIFE THAT COMES TO LIFE.
NICKNAMES, STREET NAMES OR WHATEVER, it seems like most people I know, especially black people, have some other name they are called that is NOT the name they momma gave them. I mean think about it for a sec, in fact look at your FB friends list or Myspace. Hell you can even look in your phone! I'm willing to bet almost every person in that phone that's under 50 has a damn alias. A NICKNAME, a STREET NAME, if they are creative an ARTIST NAME..its gonna be something! When I thought about this show I went through my phone and all I could do is laugh. The only stark difference in numbers was the females tended to have AKA's a tad bit less. BUT some of them I didn't grow up with so they might have had one back in the day and dropped it and got brand new when they got grown. But AKA's for the black community almost seem like a mandatory requirement, especially in the hood. So here goes: Do you have an AKA? If so what is it? Do you like your AKA? Who gave you the name? Why did you get the name? What's the craziest AKA you ever heard? What's an AKA that someone you know has that you are GLAD you don't have? What's the coolest AKA you heard that you thought was fly? Do you know someone with an AKA that straight up does NOT fit them and often wonder how the hell they got that name? Have you ever given someone an AKA and it stuck with them? I know just about every single one of my callers can relate directly or indirectly to this topic so I hope yall can call in
