    Does past still afflict Psyche of Blacks, Light Skin preferred over Black skin

    in Music

    As much as we would prefer not to discuss it, skin tone complications of the past still afflict the psyche of present-day America, according to an article by TheGrio. And, to be sure, the studies the article cites don’t isolate the issue to the black community alone. Rather, the studies report that the issue is pervasive in mainstream America as well.


    Even employers seem to prefer the lighter-skin blacks among us:


    A 2006 University of Georgia study showed that employers prefer light-skinned black men to dark-skinned men, regardless of their qualifications. We found that a light-skinned black male can have only a Bachelor’s degree and typical work experience and still be preferred over a dark-skinned black male with an MBA and past managerial positions,” said Matthew S. Harrison in 2006, then a doctoral student in applied industrial organizational psychology at Georgia.The study, which sampled over 12,000 black women imprisoned in North Carolina between 1995 and 2009, showed that light-skinned women were sentenced to 12 percent less time behind bars than their darker-skinned counterparts. The results also showed that having light skin reduces the actual time served by 11 percent.

    BLACKOUT MEDIA CHANGING THE NARRATIVE OF BLACKS IN THE MEDIA

    in Self Help

    Butterfly Evolution is turning the mic over to Amber Ivy and Jeremy Johnson/Blackout Media.  Blackout Media reports...


    According to the New Pittsburgh Courier and Free Press, there were some 18 black-owned stations in 2006, only 1.3% of all TV stations. In 2012 that number dropped to 5 and by 2013 it was zero due to buyouts by larger companies.


    It is painful to see how our black brothers and sisters are portrayed on the news, television, and even movies. In 2015, directors continue to deal with systematic issues that cause black films with good storylines to not get funded because there is not a market for "good black films".


    We have a trillion dollar buying power, so guess what WE are the market FOR?  Join us as we discuss blacks in media and changing the narrative.  We will also discuss the Black America 2.0 campaign to blackout media starting in May.  Any media that continuously shows blacks in less than desirable light, we encourage you to stop watching. Yes to include, Hip Hop and Reality TV.  


    Join Butterfly Evolution in welcoming Blackout Media, Host, Tammy Gaitor and Rodney Jordan are looking forward to this discussion. Listen/comment at 818-691-7406 or register as a follower of the show in order to join the live chat.  www.blogtalkradio.com/butterflyevolution.org

    A place where people can give their opinions on their point of view of whites and blacks.

  • Blacks & The Cops

    in Politics

    America is a funny land.


    Not funny as in "ha ha," but funny as in strange.


    So strange that even though cops have historically been at odds with Blacks, people try to pretend that there is something else going on in a so-called justice system that sometimes seems like it persecutes just us.


    But anyone who has lived in a poor neighborhood with their eyes and mind open realizes that the "Thin Blue Line," is typically erected between the "haves" and the "have nots," frequently doling out abuse to the "have nots."


    And, the "have nots" don’t always get their day in court when there is abuse, which is why periodically, the people speak in the loudest voice possible—riots.


    Ferguson spoke in that loud voice and now, Baltimore is speaking as well.


    Perhaps no city has the reputation for rioting that Los Angeles has earned. 


    This April 29, marked the 23rd anniversary of the notorious LA Riots.


    And it is business as usual, from Rodney King to Micheal Brown and from Eric Garner to Freddy Gray, countless Black men and women in between, as well as throughout American history.

    Racism In Milwaukee? - Black People Need To Step Up

    in Politics Conservative

    Two Bucks


    The story of Two Bucks, an East Side Bar in Milwaukee, may never recovery from an insedent that happened over the weekend.  Black patrons, for no reaon were asked to leave the bar by the owner.  Subsequently many of the employees quit and are now calling for a boycott of the bar.  There are two situations with this story that I find interesting.  We will discuss it and take your calls on this morning.


    The Milwaukee River Development Paln


    Currently there are 4 developers competing to develop the downtown site on the Milwaukee river.  Court proceedings and law suites are already under way.  One must wonder what kind of deals are being made and of course what officials are participating in Quid pro quo.


    I looked at this story and wondered something rather strange.  Is Common Core causing Blacks and people in poverty to be left out of opportunites.  Sure you may wonder why I am going in this direction but take a listen to the show and you will see why.


    Will Hillary Clinton Be Our Next President?


    African-Americans really need to look closesly at the facts. Our inner cities that are failing are a direct result of Liberal politics.  In essence this is the new slavery and we keep voting for it.


    There have been no Democratic candidates that are a serious threat to Hillary Clinton step forward.  It really makes me wonder why her scandal ridden past seems to be a non-issue to them.  Benghazi, Quid pro quo deals, as well as distancing herself from her husbands crime bill issues are enough to really make one pause.  At least they should, but some how this woman has been able to get around all of this.  She has not and most likely will not sit down and do a long interview without knowing all of the questions in advance.
