Over the last couple of months the spotlight has been on the NFL to address the numerous past and current reports involving violence against women from NFL players. While this is not a new conversation or dynamic, it has risen to a level that is demanding an immediate and appropriate response.
Recognizing that nearly 70% of the NFL players are Black and the face of this reoccurring violence is portrayed as representing the also disproportional intimate partner violence that is experience in the Black community over all, we will convene a discussion to address the role of the Black community and particularly Black women in helping to frame a culturally competent response from the NFL? We will also discuss the Black community perception of "whooping," our children and the need for this punishment?
Please join us and express your opinion.
About 60% of Americans know someone who has been the victim of domestic violence or sexual assault, but only about 15% have ever had a discussion about it with friends, according to a new study by the Avon Foundation. Why the big gap? Are people afraid to discuss the topic? Is it still a shameful secret like it was 50 years ago? More than half those surveyed who experience assault said they didn't get help from anyone they told about their victimization, but nearly 75% of the people surveyed said they would give a hand to a victim they knew. So do people lie on surveys? Maybe. But maybe they just don't realize how to recognize or help those who are victimized. Join us when Merril Cousins, executive director of King County Coalition against Domestic Violence in Seattle, WA, as we discuss the Avon report, Saturday, 11 am, at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/3women3ways. You can listen at any time by accessing the archived shows at that location, or call in live at 646-378-0430.
Our show is only an hour again tonight, but this time we have a real debate going. The topic will be, police violence and murder rates in the black community.
Facing off sparring partners will be Sam Sinyangwe with Mapping Police Violence, and the Movement.org, and Ted Hayes. Ted Hayes has been a homeless activist for decades in Southern California, and is currently crusading against illegal immigration, which he sees as an assault on the black community, specifically as it impacts the descendants of chattel slaves and Jim Crow survivors.
But he has plenty of opinions on this topic.
Please tune in at 10-00 p.m. Ct, at www.blogtalkradio.com/andrecontroversa.
Feel free to call in at 914-803-4350.
Sue you tonight, 10-00 p.m. CST.

This week, ToshaMakia, the sexy latina model, singer, club host and radio personality joins Frankie Picasso host, of The Good Radio Network at 1:00 pm EST on Thursday, May 21, 2015.
ToshaMakia came to fame when her hit single, 'Be Yourself' skyrocketed up the charts gaining her the exposure and attention of some of the biggest names in the music business. She became noticed by likes of NYC’s Hot 97’s Angie Martinez, and touring with folks like, Ashanti, Ciara, Diddy, Lil Kim, LL Cool J, Trick Daddy, and Busta Rhymes just to name a few.
'While she was nominated as one of the top 50 sexiest single Latina's in NYC, there is another side to ToshaMakia that she may be even more proud of, her work with victims of domestic violence and that brings her here today. ToshaMakia uses her real life experiences to help others. She herself is a survivor of domestic violence, bullying, molestation, and she uses her story to help empower others in abusive situations. She’s also assisted in physically helping these victims get out of their abusive relationships.
When ToshaMakia was interviewed by Winston-Salem's "The Chronicle" in regards to an ARTICLE about the controversial and abusive celebrity relationship Rihanna had with Chris Brown, they stated thatToshaMakia has a trendy, edgy, and unfiltered voice for teens and women to follow.
Lamont Banks, Cliff Stewart and Lisa Stewart of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.
Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Lamont, Cliff, and Lisa will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.
Our Special Guests for tonight's show are Dean Katherine S. Broderick, and Law Student Tamara Brown. Both of our guests will be sharing their thoughts with our listening audience about the protesting against police violence in Baltimore, Maryland.
A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org.

Ben Atherton-Zeman returns to Men…Women…and Other Truths in this special broadcas to share his “life-altering” experience: A 23-day tour of India and Nepal, presenting stories, and comedic – yes, comedic - presentations on eliminating violence against women, and transforming centuries old beliefs.
But it wasn’t just what Ben was teaching that altered his life, it was the people, their stories and their courage to continue standing up in the face of heinous abuse. This is a journey you won’t want to miss!
Ben is a spokesperson for the National Organization for Men against Sexism (www.nomas.org), and is a public speaker on issues of violence prevention. He visited India and Nepal on behalf of the U.S. State Department Speakers Bureau. He identifies as a “recovering sexist” and believes that every man must challenge violence and sexism in the world, and in themselves.
Jeff Hendler hosts this special broadcast.
The act provides some $660 million in funding over five years for programs ranging from protecting victims of domestic violence and community violence prevention to legal aid for survivors of violence. With the fiscal cliff looming, congress seeks drastic cuts to the program. This would prove detrimental to African American families, as African Americans are 3x likely to suffer domestic abuse, depression, and other mental illnesses related to violence against women. This episode we'll explore..Congress' dirty little secret to avoid taxing the rich, as well as take a look at how mental illness/violence is impacting our community, and it's political connotations.
On March 10th at 2pm Eastern, the NLN will be hosting a Blog Talk Radio titled Responding to HIV/AIDS in the Context of Violence Against Latinas: Strategies that Work.
