    Asking Questions to black leadership deserves an answer

    in News

    Recently I asked the Minneapolis Urban League president Scott Gray how will he manage a 13th grade program in Minneapolis when the MUL's elemetary school was shut down and the high school ran by the MUL is on academic probation? It was deemed as an attack on a black man when in fact we, as black people should be able to ask questions when we see faulty systems and processes in place without it being considered an "attack." Of course these people want to live inside a shadow looking in the mirror reverse. If black folks in Minnesota and from around the United States expect any hope or change, our black leadership must be able to answer the questions posed to them in a timely and relevant manner.

    Hennepin County Rich Stanek on The Ron and Don Show – Wednesday, 8:30 p.m.

    in News

    By The Ron and Don Show


    The City Pages wrote, “If Rich Stanek wins a third term as Hennepin County Sheriff, he'll do so without the support of his deputies. In July, the Hennepin County Sheriff's Deputies Association announced it's overwhelmingly supporting the candidacy of Minneapolis Police Assistant Chief Eddie Frizell, who is running to take Stanek's job.” 


    Join the team of Ronald A. Edwards and Don Allen as our special guest is Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek. In an unscientific poll conducted by the Independent Business News Network in August 2014 showed Sheriff Stanek leading Frizell in double-digits. We start the show with Sheriff Stanek who is happy to tell us about what it takes to be a leader in Hennepin County.  



    We also cover the Community Standards Initiative (CSI) and hope someone in that organization can find a phone number, report or mission to let us know what really happened between the school board, Director Rebecca Gagnon, Al Flowers and Clarence Hightower. Sources tell IBNN NEWS that CSI was expecting a check on this past Monday for $49,000.00 – but did not get it. (Watch R.T. Rybak closely.) 
    Also in the room will be the absurd discussion about a handful of community “freelancers” putting together a budget of $10 million dollars (mostly salaries) to present to the governor for more community pimping. The two African American state senators put the STOP on that!

    The Don S. McClure Show - Words! How we use them


    Words! How We Use Them


    A single distinct meaningful element of speech or writing, used with others (or sometimes alone) to form a sentence and typically shown with a space on either side when written or printed.


    To choose and use particular words in order to say or write (something) of value or opinion


    To describe a person or subject.


    To explain your feelings either good or bad in your eyes.


     There is an old saying Choose your words (Carefully) for they may be your last.


    How many times have we used words to express our feelings toward someone?


    Words have always been the foundation to give understanding and to write down a lasting memory.


    For without words we would have no means of communication between one another.


    You can’t express your true love and desire without words.

    Ferguson and Minneapolis: The Killing of Unarmed black men and the silence

    in News

    Join Ronald A. Edwards and Don Allen for another episode of The Ron and Don Show. This week both hosts will talk about the killing in Minneapolis as well as what's happening in Ferguson, MO. Tune in at 8:30 p.m. to hear the best in Black Talk Radio on #BlogTalkRadio. 


    It is unlikely the town of Ferguson, Missouri will change in our lifetimes. The mainstream media has portrayed Ferguson, Missouri as a town of rioter’s and looter dismissing the fact the town of 21,203 (2010 census) is in a crisis. In a report from ArchCity Defenders — a legal group that “works to break the cycle of ‘revolving door justice’ in the St. Louis metropolitan area” — reveals that in 2013, “the Ferguson Municipal Court disposed 24,532 warrants and 12,018 cases, or about 3 warrants and 1.5 cases per household.” In Ferguson, the “majority (67%) of [the city's 21,203] residents are African-American” and “22% of residents live below the poverty level.” Despite Ferguson’s relative poverty, fines and court fees comprise the second largest source of revenue for the city, a total of $2,635,400 [...] According to a court employee, the docket for an average court session may include as many as 1,500 cases. Assuming an 80% conviction rate, the average fine in a case resulting in a guilty verdict would be $275.The local carnage happening over the last month and a half is a direct representation of what being poor, black and broke looks like in a town with no opportunities to rise beyond the mundane.

    Our conversation this week has been all about torture, and now the Congress is fighting against reconciling with Cuba.  We have accepted Torture as a way of life even though it is not how we as a nation have operated in the past.  130 Children shot dead in a school in Pakistan, six members of a family in Pennsylvania, killed by an ex-husband, before he commits suicide, and young Black men shot dead in the streets of our cities and in the parks and in Wal Mart.   There needs to be a reconsideration of what is right as we pass through this life.  We need to respect each other and wish only the best for one another.  Join us at 9:00 am est 12/18/14 on blogtalkradio.com /don-durant  online or on the phone: 718-305-6322
