    The Jacksons and Berry Gordy Back Together Again!

    in Entertainment

    b Reminding us that they were once relevant, The Jacksons performed at a recent tribute to Berry Gordy.

    Joking “Be careful what you wish for,” Gordy remembered the time that he let Michael Jackson and his brothers come to live with him after they got kicked out of the California home he had brought them from Indiana to live in.

    According to the Associated Press, Marlon Jackson thanked Gordy for “letting us come to your house and tear it up,” as well as for putting them on the path to a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame career in a tribute to Gordy at the Ebony Power 100 gala.

    Gordy, who danced along with everyone else as the group sang tunes like, “Shake Your Body Down to the Ground” and “I Want You Back” reminisced, “Michael and his brothers were just incredible to be around…I’m happy they’re here.”

    The event, which honored powerful African Americans including President Barack Obama, Gordy, Forest Whitaker, commentator Van Jones, educator Henry Louis Gates Jr. and Serena Williams, was attended by the likes of Magic Johnson, Victor Cruz, Lala Vasquez and Condola Rashad. Nick Cannon was the host of the ceremony, which also featured a performance from the actors from “Motown: The Musical.”

    Gordy commended Ebony magazine, which provided his Motown record label with its very first cover, for giving blacks confidence by chronicling their accomplishments over so many decades.

    “It was the Supremes. They had no idea how much it meant to us,” said Gordy, who took a copy of the cover out of his pocket to show the audience.

    Being Black in America, The Color of Injustice

    in Politics

    The outrage began with the shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman.  It was the watershed moment where America and the world woke up and realized that for young, black men, a trip to the local Walmart can end in death.  America’s problem with race though, including the countless shooting of unarmed , young, black men began long before Trayvon Martin.

    A recent report though suggests that police in American shoot an African American male twice a week.  This is nothing new.  This phenomena is almost certainly underreported as only 4% of police departments within the United States provided these statistics to the FBI and are based on a system of self-reporting.  As a democratic nation, we are not only failing when it comes to race issues, but actually turning back the clock on the civil rights movement.  To make matters worse, it is a rare occasion for police charged and successfully prosecuted.

     Please join Fred and Marg on BTR’s Lies My Country Told Me, “Being Black In America, The Color of Injustice“ on Sunday, October 5, 2014 at 12:00 pm EST.  You can join us in the chat room or call in and share your opinion at (347) 677-1814.

    "Ray Hagins Must Go Campaign" w Honored Guest: Elder Activist Baba Joseph Hayden

    in Politics

    If you've been living under an Afrikancentered rock for the past week, you may not have heard Pastor/Officer Ray Hagins' comments which people agree openly endorsed the murder of Mike Brown.  Watch the video at this site for yourself: 

    Pastor/Officer Ray Hagins Justifies the Murder of Mike Brown

    The community activist who challenged Hagins in this video is named Baba Joseph Hayden.  Baba Hayden's outrage at Hagins' blind support for the police justification for Mike Brown's murder was evident in his voice, posture, and demeanor.  If we didn't know better, we would think that the elder almost wanted to punch Hagins in the nose for these comments (many of us wanted to).

    Tonight, we are honored to have Baba Hayden on our program to discuss how he felt about Ray Hagins making those comments defending Mike Brown's murderer and what he thinks about the "Ray Hagins Must Go Campaign" which is a Black community-organized movement to push Officer Pokechop or Mr. Mobutu (if you prefer), out of the conscious commuity and send a message to the next vanguard of race traitoring Al Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons that their kind will not be tolerated. 

    Tune in and enjoy.
