    Who is Ben Tillman? A Look at Present Day Racism

    in Spirituality

    Ben Tillman was a politician of the Democratic Party who was Governor of South Carolina from 1890 to 1894, and a United States Senator from 1895 until his death. A white supremacist who often spoke out against blacks, Tillman led a paramilitary group of Red Shirts during South Carolina's violent 1876 election. On the floor of the U.S. Senate, he frequently ridiculed blacks, and boasted of having helped to kill them during that campaign.


    Even after 50+ years we have made great progress in the Civil Rights movement, we still faced racism and injustices in America.  Tonight the Gray Matter Show with Apostle Gray will discuss the recent protest from two former students that request Winthrop College to rename Tillman Administration Hall in honoring Ben Tillman.


    Two former Winthrop University students who want the school to rename Tillman Hall, the campus building honoring one of South Carolina’s most notorious racist politicians, “Pitchfork” Benjamin Tillman.


    Winthrop’s Board of Trustees heard their request Friday afternoon, but gave no formal response. Afterward, former student Mike Fortune said he was disappointed the trustees didn’t ask him questions or invite him back for more discussion.


    Fortune, 71, is a retired attorney who lives on Lake Wylie and has taken courses at Winthrop. He’s making the Tillman name-change request along with Richard Davis, 77, who graduated with a master’s of liberal arts from the university in 2010.


    Both men are white. They told Winthrop officials they’re outraged the school’s most iconic building fronting Oakland Avenue is named after someone who was widely known as a racist who advocated killing black people.

    The Shortage of Marriageable Black Men & Black Women's Dreams of Motherhood

    in Self Help

    What's driving more single African-American women to adopt? Like other women, African American women dream of marriage and motherhood. But with the grim number of marriageable black men, professional black women aren’t finding husbands.


    According to the 2006 U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey, 45 percent of African-American women have never been married, compared with 23 percent of white women.


    But the decision to adopt isn't just driven by the paucity of eligible African-American men, others say.  "In many cases, it [the pressure to be a mother] begins to set up feelings of unworthiness, poor self-esteem and the feeling that 'I'm not fully a woman,' says Toni Oliver, founder and CEO of Roots Adoption Agency in Atlanta, Georgia, whose agency sees more single African-American women adopting because of infertility issues.


    My guest, Lynda Dorman, 50, was one of these women. Lynda, who holds a Master of Business Administration and Master of International Management from the University of Maryland, University College, decided to stop waiting to get married to become a mother and instead adopted sisters, Leah, 9, and Lauren, 8. Lynda shares her story of letting go, forgiveness, and acceptance.

    Simran Singh Your journey to love

    in Christianity

    Greetings to all God's people I am truly blessed that you have decided to support the ministry. Every week I like to bring something new to the platform which will inspire all women. My guest tonight is no other than Simran Singh.Every person desires to find that "ultimate soul mate." According to the U.S. census, there are 100 million active singles in the United States alone. Each one of them is seeking their true soul mate. Because of heartbreak, pain, loneliness, or a need to feel complete, even those who are in a relationship wonder, from time to time, if an ultimate soul mate exists beyond their current experience. 

    A grand awakening is on the cusp for this planet, but cannot occur unless people wake up to themselves. There is a great need for swift and concise understanding of what is beyond the illusion of fairytale Love. In this moment, too many buy into their preoccupation of Love rather than the reality; they are the Love they seek. 

    Your Journey to Love is the experience of real Love, not by steps, processes and tools... but through integration and communing. 

    The greatest quest in life is 'to Love and be Loved'. The idea of a twin flame, true love or ultimate soulmate teases the mind, especially through the most challenging moments of life. The soul's true mate is not 'out there'... it sits waiting within. Your Journey to Love is a guiding path along the inner road to true love and your soul's true mate.

    Simran Singh is author of Your Journey to Enlightenment: Twelve Guiding Principles of Love Courage and Commitment in the New Dawn New Page Publishers and Conversations With The Universe, Select Books Publishers. Simran's latest, Your Journey to Love: Discover the Path to Your Soul's True Mate - New Page Books will be released February 2015.

    When comparing households with working mothers in different regions, the Midwest — with 33 percent — had the highest percentage of fathers serving as primary caregivers for preschool-aged children, according to the census. The South had the lowest with 24 percent.

    I was just thinking...Is your city dying? Detroit the example...and why?

    in Politics

    Detroit a portrate of a dying city being resucitated for gentrification.


    In the 1950's, Detroit was considered the Paris of the west in regards to architecture. Entrepreneurs had an immense amount of wealth giving Detroit unique and magnificent building structures.


    What is happening presently to Detroit is precisely what is happening to America. Jobs are disappearing, and the middle class is being systematically destroyed. Less than half of the residents of Detroit over the age of 16 are working at this point. 2010, the city had a population of 713,777, more than a 60 percent drop from a peak population of over 1.8 million at the 1950 census.


    What it will be is called “Trickle-Down Urbanism,” or the process of displacing and relocating residents from urban neighborhoods that have been targeted for new investment and resources.


    Can and is this happening in your town?

    Voting rates by race prove diversity will never loose Presidential elections

    in Politics

    According to the US Census, "In 2012, the overall voting rate was 61.8%." "Overall, in the last five Presidential elections, the non-Hispanic White share of total votes cast dropped by about 9 percentage points.  In comparison, between 1996 and 2012, the Hispanic share of total votes cast increased by about 4%, while the Black share increased by about 3%."


    The Washington Post writes, "And while Obama did loose White voters by 20 points to former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney (the widest losing margin for a Democratic presidential candidate since 1984) he still won a clear popular vote victory - with a majority of his total vote nationwide coming from White voters."  How about that folks.  The majority of people who voted for President Obama were White!  Let's go!

    THE INCOMPREHENSIBLE FATHER OF LIGHTS TRUE DIVINE PLAN FOR HUMANITY

    in Religion

    *****WARNING NOT FOR NEW BELIEVERS*****


    WHAT IS THE TRUE HIDDEN DIVINE PLAN OF GOD?


    With God being the singular cause of the beginning (John 1:3), and given that He knows and has always known every detail about the future, He has clearly caused (at least in the ultimate sense) everything that has ever come to pass, knowing full well that that was exactly what He was doing. "But what about sin?" one might ask. "Does God cause people to sin?" According to the Bible, God caused the murder of His Son, Jesus (Acts 4:27-28). God caused the Israelites to stray from His ways (Isaiah 63:17). God caused marauding Sabeans and Chaldeans to murder Job's children and servants (Job 1:21-22). God caused King David to take a census that He then condemned Him for taking (1 Chronicles 21:1-8; 2 Samuel 24:1). God caused Eli's sons to disobey, dishonor, and disrespect both their father and God Himself (1 Samuel 2:25). According to the Bible, God certainly causes people to sin. "But doesn't this make the Biblical God evil?" comes the reply. Absolutely not! Humans are commanded to obey certain laws by God, but the only reason we are obligated to obey these rules is because God has commanded us to. No rule is binding on a human being if it does not ultimately come from God Himself. The same is true for all of the rest of creation. But because a rule is binding on humans, this does not even remotely imply that the same rule is binding on God Himself, the authority behind all rules. In other words, even if we were to agree that it would be wrong of me to cause you to sin, that does not mean it would be wrong of God to cause you to sin. - See more at: http://www.godcontention.org/compare-religions/does-god-control-humans#sthash.4faXLHRE.dpuf

    Live:How do Men Feel, Women wearing the Pants More Educated & Making More Money


    this year noted a surge in women between the ages of 30 and 44 making more money than their husbands.Women made more money than men in 22 percent of married couples surveyed in 2007, compared with 4 percent in 1970. While men make more money overall and hold more management positions, women are making greater gains.


    "The supply of men has changed," said D'Vera Cohn, senior writer at the Pew Research Center's Social and Demographic Trends project. "The pool of college educated men isn't growing as rapidly as it is for women."


    There is also a gender shift in the realm of education. Women represent nearly 60 percent of students holding advanced degrees in areas such as medicine, law, business and graduate programs, the U.S. Census reported in April.Researchers have found educational attainment to be a higher priority among couples than ever. Popular online dating sites Match.com and eHarmony report that romances happen occasionally between educated, professional women and men who are less educated or have a lower salary.


    Leah MacIsaac-Ruff, 45, works 11-hour-plus-days as a technology vice president at a Wall Street firm. She has a college degree. So does her husband, Doug, 43, who walks dogs for a living.MacIsaac-Ruff may be the breadwinner, but she finds her husband's career choice refreshing.


    "If I were to marry a type-A personality and we sat on our computers side by side in the evenings, I think I'd die," she says. "I think I'd be in a cold relationship. The last thing I want is to go home to an investment banker."
