    Best of the Best - "Trayvon Martin"

    in Lifestyle

    Tonight's show is a repeat of a popular show from July 23, 2013.  The topic was Trayvon Martin.  Listen and reflect on today's concerns regarding the shooting death of Michael Brown.


    *****


    The conversation will be guided by the DR. MICHAEL E. HODGE, Chair of the Department of Sociology at Morehouse College; the REVEREND THOMAS BOWEN, Chaplin of the Morehouse Alumni Chapter, DC and Minister of Fellowship and Outreach at Shiloh Baptist Church in Washington, DC; and MR. TOM BACOTE, Morehouse alumnus who is based in Johannesburg, South Africa, serving as the Country Program Director for the Southern Africa Office of the American Center for International Solidarity.


    To some Trayvon Martin is the “other brother”… the unfortunate one, the one who got caught, the one who was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and, to some, he is simply the one who was a victim in a rather tragic story. But are we missing a powerful truth… is Trayvon Martin your son or brother? Is Trayvon Martin America’s son? Does Trayon's story mirror hidden and blatant racism? Listen and decided for yourself. Call in and share your thoughts.

    in Youth

    This episode was originally broadcast on July 14,2013 in response to the Trayvon Martin verdict that basically convicted Trayvon with his own murder, instead of the person who pulled the trigger, nor the officers of criminal injustice, lawyers, prosecuters, representatives, etc.

    DOJ &Holder Will Not Charge Zimmerman for Unarmed Teen Trayvon Martin's Death

    in Education

    Tonight on The Gist of Freedom Join host, Roy Paul and guest, former prosecutor Dwayne Nash as they discuss Holder's decision not to charge Zimmerman.


    The Justice Department announced Tuesday that George Zimmerman will not face federal criminal civil rights charges for shooting and killing teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012.


    Zimmerman fatally shot Martin while the unarmed African American 17-year-old was walking in Sanford, Fla. The shooting became a national flashpoint, sparking a discussion of race relations that continues to reverberate since the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and other incidents across the country.


    “The death of Trayvon Martin was a devastating tragedy,” Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said in a statement. “It shook an entire community, drew the attention of millions across the nation, and sparked a painful but necessary dialogue throughout the country.”


    As a result of the announcement Tuesday, the federal investigation into the shooting has been closed.

    Trayvon Martin: The Second Deadly Assault

    in Legal

    This week, Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson takes on the Zimmerman trial and leads a "family" discussion to help absorb the blow of Trayvon Martin's killer being set free. For Americans reeling from the young man’s senseless death, the verdict is another mortal wound. Facts are reviewed; legal procedures are analyzed, from the point of view of relationships: Trayvon's to his immediate and extended family, George Zimmerman's to our nation of laws, and both of them to our own psyches. We look at emotional impacts of violence against young people of color in America, and examine the related legal statutes, past, current and future. At the Roundtable: Dr. Valerie Batts an expert on violence, healing and a change-oriented approach to diversity; New York Prosecutor and DA Mina Malik; Casey Anthony's defense attorney Jose Baez; and Harvard Law Professor Ronald Sullivan.


    At the center of our conversation: Where do we find solace and a way forward when justice, as delivered by the courts, feels wrong and unfair?


    It is time to gather at the Roundtable as Stephanie Robinson delivers hot topics, deep talk and a little bit of uplift. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson...pull up a chair.

    I Can't Breathe. Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Trayvon Martin, Charles Barkley & more

    in Lifestyle

    The last two weeks have been unsettling to the psyche of America. It has been devastating to the hearts and minds of Black America. 


    Atty. Bob McCulloch took his time in Ferguson to create enough doubt in the minds of his grand jury, to not only squash any chance of an indictment, but also decimate the character of Mike Brown in the court of public opinion. Just like the legal team in FL did Trayvon Martin, they used traces of THC, "menacing" pictures and size to place these young me squarely in the box of America's fears. 


     


    With Eric Garner things should have been different. Yes, he was 6'5" and 350 lbs, but he was also unarmed, backed against a wall and surrounded by armed policeman. All while several cell phone cameras were rolling. Surely, we would at least see this case go to trial. C'mon, even after Eric Garner was subdued, and gasping for his last breaths, that would warrant Officer Daniel Pantaleo seeing the inside of a courtroom with a defense attorney having the ability to cross examine him. Right? 


     


    No not in todays United States of America. Not in an country where a black man with a big microphone like Charles Barkley could see these incidents, as questionable, while people like Bill O'Reilly sees it the way many black people do. 


     


    These incidents have many of us in a state of utter disbelief that has surpassed anger. What do we do next? We'll discuss this on this episode. Our guest will be Dr. JeffriAnne Wilder. 


     


    Join us every week for provocative talk radio about everything from God to Hip Hop. From the stock market to the Android market, your mind is to big to be thinking about so little. Join us every week for the conversation!
