    Black Lives Matter and The Fight for Finding Safety in Black Skin - Pt 2.

    in Current Events

    Today we're continuing our discussion on why the phrase "Black Lives Matter" means so much in a society in which being Black often times means being assaulted on different levels from all aspects. 

    From facing the persistent realities of institutionalized racism and pressures outside of our communities, to dealing with the myriad pressures within our communites, the constant stress of navigating these minefields takes a noticable toll on most Black people in America.


    Hypertension, diabetes, obesity, emotional stress, psychological vulnerability, social isolation, excessive mistrust of authority, repressed anger, dysfunctional interrelationships, negative self-image, growing hopelessness....today we'll talk about the many ways that this contstant fight to assert the value of our lives manifests itself in the very lives we're fighting for.


    We have plenty of strong coffee.  Bring a big cup.

    100 Days, 100 Deaths: These Black Lives Matter Too!

    in Lifestyle

    Black Lives Matter???? Prove it!!! While we rightly protest the suspicious death of one black woman in custody, South Central Los Angeles has erupted into one of the worst gang feuds ever. More than twenty-five people have already fallen, and rumor has it that the gangs have a stated goal to take 100 lives in 100 days. Don't these Black Lives Matter, too? What is the word on the street? What should people do? Jae Iglesia and Mr. Pearson will talk to Stoop Lo and All Day; members of the rap group Reservoir Dogs, former and future hosts of the Underboss Reservoir Radio Show, and residents of the current targeted area--in The Barbershop!

    Double Conciousness and the Black Lives Matter Movement

    in Christianity

    In his 1903 book "The Souls of Black Folk", W.E.B. Dubois introduced the concept of double conciousness. It's the idea that blacks find it difficult to find identity in a majority white world. This refrain is revisited in the Black Lives Matter movement today. This is even more apparent in black churches where theologies are conflicting with praxis on contemporary issues. How can the black clergy and leadership address this double conciousness while empowering believers to be "one body with many members?" Join Pastor Neal for this and other topics of the day.

    Breaking the Chains.....Our Lives, Our Pain Re-Imagined

    in Motivation

    The "I have a dream speech by Martin L.King debuted in Detroit over fifty years ago on June 23, 1963 and changed the course of this nation, and re-imagined what was possible. Born that same year on July 23rd, I recently celebrated my 52nd Birthday, and realize that my life has been engulfed inside the Civil Rights, and parallels closely with the transformation I endured causing me to re-imagine the little black girl born in 1963 also,


    Today we are sharing about the healing that must occur between these two cultures that caused such strong divisional lines of hatred, distrust, and pain merely based on skin tone. Although our nation has become much more diverse and Civil Rights are being fought for so many more, we still have a core pain in cities across the nation that still reek with the racial tension of the past.


    Today, let's look at racial reconciliation and find ways to re-imagine ourselves, our cities and our nation.


    What's possible for us today should we have dialogue about the pain we have both experienced? Our featured guest, poet and author Alicea Davis has a special message for healing our communities and racial reconciliation. Join me as she shares what she has re-imagined for us here in Detroit, and the work she's doing to close the gap in our consciousness so we see ourselves anew - as citizens of the same family. May we all remember our Divine heritage, our spiritual birthrights, and co-creative powers for creating a miraculous world.


    Let's re-imagine our self-image, re-create our belief in everyone's worthiness, and choose to live in excellent communities that flourish abundantly with knowledge, intelligence and resources to be self-sustaining.

    #BLACKLIVESMATTER : IS IT JUST A RALLYING CRY OR DO BLACK LIVES REALLY MATTER???

    in Lifestyle

    #BLACKLIVESMATTER is and has been adopted as an rallying cry for some time now, especially when situations have occurred that have made an impact on black lives, society, and culture as a whole, especially when it's been afflicted upon by non-blacks. Situations that've been in the mainstream for quite some time now has actually warranted said rallying cry, but I'm talking about taking it back to EVERYHOOD U.S.A. Does #BLACKLIVESMATTER hold the same fervor and ferocity, when we as blacks, committ these same atrocities on OURSELVES??? YES, I'm totally for JUSTICE being sought for and gained for the Trayvon Martins, Michael Browns, Eric Garners, Tamir Rices, Eric Harris', Walter Scotts, Freddie Grays, Charleston Nine, Sandra Bland, and now Samuel DuBose. But. I still want the same JUSTICE for when Ray Ray kills Pookie in the hood. The bottom line is that we don't make #BLACKLIVESMATTER a MOMENT, but an actual MOVEMENT!!!!

    REAL WOMEN/REAL LIVES

    in LGBT

    Trans Sisters are raising the bar on diversity and inclusion. Activists like Janet Mock and Laverne Cox are more than out and proud. They are using their visibility as a platform to educate, break barriers and open doors. From OPRAH to ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK TO the BOLD & BEAUTIFUL the lives of transgender men and women are being talked about and played out for all to see but what is the real story. Joining CAN WE TALK FOR REAL on June 3, 2015 are two activists living their lives and working for the transgender community as well as equal rights - Bre Campbell and Carmarion D. Anderson. Bre and Carmarion will talk about the challenges trans women still face, the stigma not only trans sisters but the men who love them face and  why despite the success and visibility of Trans sisters like Janet Mock and Laverne Cox trans lives are still targeted for violence even murder at alarming rate. As more of our transgender sisters and brothers take their rightful place in leadership, in media, in religion and politics how do we as a community make sure that TRANS LIVES MATTER.


    It is shouted from the streets, in bars, in schools, and in homes that LIVES MATTER. In that same loud voice shout so that everyone can hear, TRANS LIVES MATTER ALSO.
