    Why Being Indifferent Causes Collateral Damage In Racial Justice Work

Tune in to #SHEtalksWEtalkRadio on Wednesday November 25th at 10 AM CST to learn how to get off the fence and get into action to eliminate racism.

  • Can A Boycott Of Christmas Gift Buying Bring Racial Justice?

    in Women

    The 20th anniversary of the Million Man March is being promoted with the words "Justice or Else!"  What's the or else? In recent speech, Minister Louis Farrakhan called for African Americans to boycott Christmas as a response to racial injustice. How can we force justice by the withdrawal of our 1.9 trillion dollars from the U.S. economy during the season most businesses depend upon for their yearly profits? Who are we hoping to hurt with our boycott? How will their financial distress lead to a change of discriminatory laws? The procecution of police who killed citizens? The passing of sensible gun laws? The release of falsely accused prisoners? Do we need to work out a specific strategy to make sure our lack of buying gifts for friends and family produces the desired effects? Will enough people participate? Do we need to tie this boycott to a specific piece of legislation? Give us your views on the meaning of "justice or else!" What threat can we collectively carry out that can force a change and bring justice

    Agitator Radio

    in Politics Progressive

    Robert's guests are Byron Durham , Erin Heaney (national ), Christine Irvine, Chicago from Standing Up for Racial Justice


    The civil rights movement of the 60s was a rainbow in terms of both race and age; young and old, black and white worked together to achieve voting rights and roll back segregation in the south. As new voter suppression laws are introduced nationwide, unarmed African Americans are gunned down in the street by police, it will take another multi-racial, multi-age movement to achieve racial justice.


    Robert's guests will discuss how the struggle for racial justice is everyone's fight.

    The Compact for Racial Justice

    in Politics

    http://www.arc.org/facingrace
    From Facing Race 2008's Plenary 3, held on Saturday, November 15. The Compact for Racial Justice offers concrete strategies and policy proposals to reverse racial disparities and move our society towards full equity, inclusion and dignity for all people. The Compact transcends talk of personal prejudice with compelling evidence of institutional racism and realistic proactive solutions. It seeks to engage a broad multiracial base of activists, opinion leaders and policymakers in making government and powerful institutions accountable for eliminating racial inequality in our schools, hospitals, courtrooms and workplaces.

    Move to Amend Reports w/ Laura Bonham & Egberto Willies

    in Politics

    JANUARY 28, 2016


    The politics of hate is strong in the 2016 election cycle, and its rhetoric has few bigger targets than the people of the Muslim community. US history reveals a longstanding pattern by the ruling class using systems of oppression to divide and conquer the masses, with the poor and middle class of all colors being its biggest targets. Islam is no exception to this oppression, as the religion practiced by over 2 billion people is a frequent target for right-wing corporate networks seeking to make money off spreading fear and misinformation which fuels anti-Islamic extremism in the United States and a highly-profitable “War on Terror” in the Middle East.


    As communities of color mobilize movements for black lives and immigrant rights, the Muslim community is also rising to challenge the systems of racism and other oppressions still being enforced. We confront the problem of Islamophobia in American politics and clear up the common misconceptions about Islam in a conversation with Maheen Ahmed from the Sacramento Valley chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

    Racial Justice is in the Best Interest of All America

    in Politics Progressive

    There's gold/goals in them there "hills" America. Come visit with. Today's show is about policing, protesting, passion, and prosperity and an uninformed public. America is in an economic boom and it is being all but hid from the public to maintain division in America. When the division in the land is healed, it brings prosperity to all America. Bringing prosperity to all America will make a liar out of a select corrupt group who have painted an ugly picture of America, and they want that picture to stand even after they have turned to dust.


    We fight wars. There will always be wars and romours of wars. We fight wars for home land safety. We fight wars for peace at home and abroad. We fight wars for equality for all mankind. So let's identify mankind


    Racial justice is in the best interest of all America!
