While I've lived 35 years in Boston, plus nearly two in Cambridge in college years, I have deep and wide Southern roots. As a child, I knew segregated schools, stores, pools and water fountains. My first college was in South Carolina. I used to be the editor of the Black weekly newspaper in the SC capital. My wife is an SC native, and on and on. I know a lot about the state.
Let me speak of the people and events I knew in my childhood and youth. Perhaps as I talk, I can come to some terms with the brutal murders of nine in a Charleston AME church yesterday.

I have heard the question asked time and again in the last 24 hours HOW AND/OR WHY the Black folks in South Kakalakey COULD OR WOULD ....FORGIVE THE MURDERER OF THIER FAMILY MEMBERS AS A FIRST COURSE OF ACTION.....

A Message from the TRAUMATIZED TRAUMATOLOGIST on the Emotional Status of Black/Afreekans in South Carolina. What we are seeing and what supports their "ability" to FORGIVE as the FIRST COURSE OF THEIR GRIEF PROCESS is BACKWARD and reflects the level of HARM they have experienced.
On today's show, we'll be taking a look at the recent events that took place in Charleston, S.C,, where Dylann Roof allegedly killed nine people during a shooting spree, in a church. We'll look at Dylann Storm Roof, who he is and what might have contributed to the event. We'll also peel back the veil and search for hidden agendas amongst the chaos and the tragedy. We'll do our best to leave no stone unturned as we climb down the rabbit hole of Charleston, South Carolina.
In this special two-hour special, the team of Ronald A. Edwards (Black Focus, The Minneapolis Story) and Don Allen (Our Black News and the publisher of the Independent Business News Networks) bring to you a comprehensive program dealing with who the South Carolina shooter was and why this was not a random singular act by lone gunman. Tune in as we evaluate local and national media coverage and why this incident has everything to do with racism and not the Devil.
