SORT BY Relevancy
Excerpt a letter to God from a Victor of DV: "I am disgusted because I know my children are ashamed of how I let him treat me. I'm ashamed of myself because I've let him humiliate me so much it has built a fear what he could do and I don't stand up to him." Domestic violence covers or should I say uncovers a wide spectrum of psychological effects. If you are carrying the weight of shame, Jesus is calling you to give that burden to him.
Where there is courage, where there is self-respect and dignity, there is a possibility that we can change the conditions and win. This is is a possibility that we can change the conditions and win. This is called /revolutionary enthusiasm/ and it is the kind of struggle that is needed in order to guarantee a victory. If we must die, then we will die the death of a revolutionary suicide that says, “If I am put down, if I am driven out, I refuse to be swept out with a broom. I would much rather be driven out with a stick because if I am swept out with the broom it will humiliate me and I will lose my self-respect. But if I am driven out with the stick, then, at least, I can claim the dignity of a man and die the death of a man rather than the death of a dog.” Of course, our real desire is to live, but we will not be cowed, we will not be intimidated.
I would like to explain to you the method that the Black Panther Party used to arrive at our ideological position, and more than that, I would like to give to you a framework or a process of thinking that might help us solve the problems and the contradictions that exist today. Before we approach the problem we must get a clear picture of what is really going on; a clear image divorced from the attitudes and emotions that we usually project into a situation. We must be as objective as possible without accepting dogma, letting the facts speak for themselves. But we will not remain totally objective; we will become subjective in the application of the knowledge received from the external world. We will use the scientific method to acquire this knowledge, but we will openly
acknowledge our ultimate subjectivity. Once we apply knowledge in order to will a certain outcome our objectivity ends and our subjectivity begins. We call this integrating theory with practice, and this is what the Black Panther Party is all about.
IN THIS DAY AND AGE, WE HAVE SEEN SO MUCH HUMILIATION, DESTRUCTION, ILL-BEHAVIOR WITH OUR PEOPLE. HAVE WE THE CHILDREN OF GOD FALLEN SO LOW THAT EVEN OUR WOMEN DON'T RESPECT US AS MEN. AS THE SCRIPTURES SAY WE ARE OUR BROTHER'S KEEPER AND OUR SISTER'S PROTECTOR. YET WE EXPLOIT, DESTROY, HUMILIATE, RAPE OUR WOMEN FOR THE WORLD TO SEE. WILL THE MEN BE REPLACED BY ANDROIDS? AS OF TODAY SCIENCE ARE CREATING HUMAN LIKE ANDROIDS FOR PEOPLE TO INTERACT. WILL THE WICKED MEN OF ISRAEL BE REPLACED BY MALE ANDROIDS IF WE DON'T STRAIGHTEN UP AND PRESERVE OUR WOMEN IN THESE TESTY TIMES?
I intend to shed LIGHT on those dark areas and put together life tools that will HOLD US UP & ACCOUNTABLE. Ask yourself what tools are you using to get you through this life because what you use, will use you!!
Disregard the people, place and things you encounter...?
You are lying to yourself, cheating yourself from the opportunity to be GREAT, stealing your purpose, tearing yourself down and disregarding the spirit that wishes to guide you into something magnificent. We often use things like anger, hate and judgment incorrectly and they become toxic, ultimately exploding, ripping apart neighborhoods in riot, terrorizing nations and taking lives.
As a planet we hate each other for things like race, sex and social status and that hate has in turned use us to segregate, humiliate and kill one another. Can you see that?
We’re so dead-set against using “good judgment” that the judgment we do use, ends up uses us to bully, belittle and breakdown.Our anger should rise up when we see the injustice of life but it is the misdirected anger that actually causes us to be instruments of injustice. We have got to use another tool to create balance and harmony. BUT we FIRST must identify if we even want harmony or if we want to be synchronized one with the other? We’ve lived out of alignment for so long that we aren’t sure what’s right, what’s offensive, what’s appropriate, what’s effective…what’s love!? Are you ready to use LOVE!?

So join me live today at 5 30pm est.time for what should make for a very good and informative show!!!...

For those of you who have forgotten the meaning of UNITY, this is a reminder :
In 1925, despite an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, Garvey was sent to the Atlanta penitentiary. His The Garvey Letter From an Atlanta Prison is dated February 10, 1925, and excerpted below as follows:
Fellow Men of the Negro Race Greetings
I am delighted to inform you, that your humble servant is as happy in suffering for you and our cause as is possible under the circumstances of being viciously outraged by a group of plotters who have connived to do their worst to humiliate you through me, in fight for real emancipation and African Redemption.
I do not want at this time to write anything that would make it difficult for you to meet the opposition of your enemy without my assistance. Suffice to say that the history of the outrage shall form a splendid chapter in the history of Africa redeemed. When black man will no longer be under the heels of others, but have a civilization and culture of their own.
The whole affair is a disgrace, and the whole black world knows it. We shall not forget. Our day may be fifty, a hundred or two hundred years ahead, let us watch, work, and pray, for the civilization of injustice is bound to crumble and bring destruction down upon the heads of the unjust.
My work is just begun, and when the history of my suffering is complete, then the future generations of the Negro will have in their hands the guide by which they shall know the “sins” of the twentieth century. I, and I know you, too, believe in time, and we shall wait patiently for two hundred years, if need be, to face our enemies through our prosperity."

Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.
Alcohol drinkers and drug users rarely see their habits as a problem. It's the people around them who have the problem: the ones who love them who must indure their irrational behavior and unpleasant personality distortions, their unreliability and unpredictability, the embarrassment and disappointment, and the constant apprehension of wondering when the next episode of drunken, drugged out behavior will hurt, shame and humiliate the family. When women suffer from substance abuse, it is often an outgrowth of depression from some unhealed wounds from childhood, frequently sexual assault, physical abuse, verbal abuse, or abandonment. But when the family nurturer, the mother, is herself hurting, the whole family experiences her pain, and they too, grow up emotionally scarred. Pamela Frazier, A National Certified Addiction Counselor, operates N' The Spirit Transformational Living, a licensed recovery home for women. Today she shares with us the challenges and triumphs of women striving to overcome addictions and what loved ones can do to help.
So we have news and comment, but also need to talk about abusive relationships.
We need to talk about this Rachel Dolezal individual some more.
Prisons that withhold menstrual pads humiliate women and violate basic rights
The reasons for keeping supplies for women in prison limited are not purely financial. Even though keeping inmates clean would seem to be in the prison’s self-interest, prisons control their wards by keeping sanitation just out of reach. Stains on clothes seep into self-esteem and serve as an indelible reminder of one’s powerlessness in prison. Asking for something you need crystallizes the power differential between inmates and guards;
Also, be reminded of this:
We dobn't do fake, loud mouth, grandstanding disingenuous social justice.

If you're black, give these links a visit and let CM Scott know what you think about CM trying to police black women because "white feminism" (TM)

We can blame the absence of sports activities. We can blame the absence of safe neighborhood parks. We can blame the absence of music and choir and band in the schools. We can blame the absence of classes that teach viable trades. We can blame police who harass and humiliate young men at will. We can blame neighborhood stores that can't or won't offer jobs to local young men. We can blame the gun shops that carelessly sell multiple firearms without regard to how they will be used. We can blame the Mayor, the Governor, the President. But truly, the out of control rage that makes a boy shoot someone to death is triggered by something else on the inside. He was not loved and nurtured by a good man. Whether his father was forced out of his life or left voluntarily, or stayed around but was abusive, a young boy who kills has been through something. We need to know what that is, because it didn't just start at the age of 12,13,14,15,16, or 17 when he chose to commit a murder. Community activist and youth mentor Gregory Sain discusses the crisis of violent black male youth and what must be done by men who are of strong will and good conscience. He may say some things that surprise you, so get ready for a spirited conversation
"Courage is fire, and bullying is smoke," stated former British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli. Adult bullying is a rising concern in the real world and online. Adults are as malicious as bad kids on the playground, but no one is supervising their activity or protecting their targets. And their victims are other adults who are not immune to the trauma of bullying. When one uses superior strength or influence to intimidate others, that’s classic bullying. Emotional abuse is characterized by subjecting another to behavior that may result in psychological trauma, like anxiety, chronic depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder. In one Seinfeld episode, George and Jerry recall their tyrannical gym teacher who used to give boys wedgies and encourage them to beat each other up. Girls don’t do anything like that, do they? Jerry asks Elaine. Oh no, Elaine replies. We just tease each other until one of us develops an eating disorder. The worst part of being bullied or abused in a relationship, is that often you don’t even realize it’s happening. Manipulative people twist your thoughts, actions, wants, and desires into something that better suits how they see the world. Bullies don’t want cooperation, they want control. Emotional bullying is often subtle and found in adult relationships and in the workplace. An emotional bully might use sarcasm, threaten, belittle, or humiliate. Join me and Life Coach Jenn A Nocera as we discuss the specific signs of bullying and emotional abuse. After the show check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.
