SORT BY Relevancy
WASHINGTON, May 27, 2015 – The horrific violence and mass looting that ravished Ferguson, MO., and Baltimore, MD., did not occur in Cleveland, OH, despite Cleveland Police Officer Michael Brelo being found not guilty of voluntary manslaughter in the November 2012 shooting deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams. The two were killed by a barrage of 137 shots fired by police into their car,
Local NAACP leaders were among many black leaders who vigorously disagreed with the judge’s verdict but joined city officials Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams and Mayor Frank Jackson in requesting peaceful protest.
As an apparent result of combined community and city cooperation, only 71 people were arrested during demonstrations on Saturday.
But, the calmness in the city may be the quiet before the storm, since Al Sharpton has accepted a request to appear in Cleveland this week to address the judge’s decision. Can the city, state or nation expect Ferguson or Baltimore level violence following Sharpton’s Cleveland appearance? This is the question that will be addressed on Standing at Freedom’s Gate with host Kevin Fobbs and nationally syndicated radio host Kenneth McClenton.
McClenton who hosts the Exceptional Conservative Show, formerly served as Policy Analyst for the DC Financial Authority and Ombudsman for the Federal Voting Assistance Program.
the revolution of the mind continues...
This week we learned of Bryon Allen's 20 Billion dollar lawsuit against Al Sharpton, Comcast and Time Warner Cable for racial discrimination against Black Owned media companies.
Byron went in Madman style -and slut shamed Sharpton - but is his beef with Sharpton fair? Is Sharpton the "least expensive negro" and a "pawn" or is he just playing according to the rules of corporate America, while getting his paper and keeping the dialogue about race open?
It's Paul, Tom and Jimmy in the seat tonight, as they tackle some big issues
- Net Neutrality is on the table. What is it? Why is it important?
- Al Sharpton found himself in some trouble
- Unions pissed off in Wisconsin?
On this episode - Actor James Woods blames Al Sharpton for shooting of NYPD officers. Jim shares more on his retail arbitrage strategy, how to buy products offline and sell for double or triple on Amazon. The 844 Area Code Phantom Debt Scam. Sony says it will release The Interview through an alternate channel. Ripple XRP a digital currency similar to Bitcoin jumps 500% in value.
How do you explain what is going on in this country when it comes to the issue we call "Racism"? How do we overcome the hatred, confussion, distrust, lies and exagerations that come into play whever the topic is addressed? Why do some people who "preach" unity, civil rights for all, a bonding of the American people at the same time encourages protests, riots, civil disobedience and unlawful violent actions?
This morning we are going to take a look at one of the most vocal and controversial people in America...Rev. Al Sharpton.
In addition, we will take a look at some of the day's news and political updates.
Join me this morning at 8AM-10AM "In the Pickle Barrel".

pickle barrel that we are in on Monday December 29th.

In this episode we discuss revelations regarding Al Sharpton at one time being an informant for the FBI. According to TMZ Sharpton was instrumental in assisting law enforcement in bringing down the Genovese crime family. Sharpton has not denied his involvement however, his version of the events conflicts with other reports which include and are not limited to his being involved in an alleged cocaine deal, This revelation has sparked heated debate within the black community and has led many to defend Sharpton's version of the events. Joining us for tonight's discussion will be noted journalist and blogger Yvette Carnell of http://www.breaking brown.com and of http://www.yourblackworld.com

You know Al Sharpton, the one that usually comes out from hiding anytime there is a national covered case. With all of the killings going on in Chicago, Al Sharptin has yet to go there and march, or ask the Justice Department to investigate. Why?
Can anyone with an any amount of common sense tell me how is Trayvon Martin's case more important than the hundreds or thousand of blacks boys in Chicago? Can any say media whore? Why are some black people so stupid that they can't see this bigot and race baitor for who he really is?
Jessie Jackson marched with Martin Luther King, Jr., yet today there are questions as to wherther Dr. King would take pride in what is going on in the black community. If Dr. King were alive today, would he be proud of the black community? How are Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton helping the black community today? Is Dr. King's "dream" still alive?
What is a revolution without the youth? Al Sharpton is moving into Chicago's Westside,why? What is his motive? Looking his recent and past says this is a fund raiser for those who want to keep the Status Quo.
What is his plan to deal with the negative image of Chicago's African community. What is a revolution without the youth? What is the plan for the youth?
Why isn't African immigration something Al and others talk about?
How and when will Al deal with the lack of things that build a community?
Jobs are not the answer but building industries that blacks can control is the solution. Creating an structure for the future is the best way and a job or modern day sharecropping is not..
