What are the roots and causes of Black on Black violence? And what is to be done about it?
Each year, roughly 7,000 blacks are murdered; 94 per cent of the time, the murderer is another Black person. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, between 1976 and 2011, there were 279,384 black murder victims .The 94 per cent figure suggests that 262,621 were murdered by other blacks.
Though blacks are 13 per cent of the national U.S. population, they account for more than 50 per cent of homicide victims. Nationally, the black homicide victimization rate is six times that of whites, and in some cities it is 32 times that of whites. Blacks are also disproportionately victimized by violent personal crimes, such as assault and robbery.

Film critic Mack Bates and host Betty Jo Tucker review two new Susan Sarandon films -- The Last of Robin Hood and The Calling. Scott Abramovitch, who wrote the screenplay for The Calling, plans to join the discussion, and Richard Glatzer, director/writer of The Last of Robin Hood, has been invited to call in.
The Last of Robin Hood follows Errol Flynn's scandalous affair with a star-struck teenager during the late 1950s. Cast members include Kevin Kline, Dakota Fanning and Susan Sarandon. This intriguing movie deals with the desire for fame and the high price it exacts. Kline plays Flynn; Fanning portrays the somewhat naive teen; and Sarandon is her fame-obsessed mother.
In The Calling, a mysterious and suspenseful thriller, Sarandon portrays a world-weary detective trying to solve a series of gruesome murders. With these two very different roles, this talented Oscar-winning actress again proves her versatility.
An avid Sarandon fan, Mack Bates conducted an in-depth interview with Sarandon a few years ago for The Leader, a University of Wisconsin student newspaper. He also contributed to Tucker's book about Sarandon (Susan Sarandon: A True Maverick) and now writes for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He also serves as a staff blogger for Milwaukee Magazine's official film blog.
We will have a late night chat with Mr. Alexander. He has been on the scene in Ferguson, MS following the shooting of an unarmed teenager. Mr. Alexander will share his experience.
It is my hope as the host, to bring attention to the Alief ISD and the issues related to Ferguson, MS.

Seduction is, in its highest form, far more than a one-note, wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am skill: it's a ritual with a complex set of rules. It can't be too aggressive, or the element of beguiling is lost in the relentless advances; but neither should it be too refined, too unobtrusive because then the interplay between the two protagonists is lost.
From Casonova to Errol Flynn, and women too such as Catherine The Great, the art of seduction has played a mojor role in many different social classes.It is said that you do not have to be beautiful or handsome to seduce the opposite sex. Really? Then what is is the secret to being a successful seducer?
Casonova's technique? Discover a lady in trouble; be attentive; extricate her from her difficulty; bestow small gifts; use alluring words; make hay; get bored; exit stage left.
Catherine The Great? Employing a former lover to do the work for you: after her affair with Potemkin, he would select a candidate-lover for her who had both the looks and the intelligence to hold Catherine's interest.
Errol Flynn? If the expression "in like Flynn" really does refer to him, then that says it all.
So "WHAT IS THE ART OF SEDUCTION?" Let's find out on DPRADIOXL, Wednesday, July 9, 2014 at 8pm.
