SORT BY Relevancy
Size still matters in the mind of Chance who was once slender, but later enjoyed the thrill of sudden thickness. She struggles with dieting and working out to lose a few pounds to live thick and fit.
While Chance balances her shape and size, Veronique suffers in a household where her fullness is frowned upon by her father. Issues of family tradition along with her love affair with Lakim also complicate her lifestyle when she walks the thin line between pop culture and family customs.
Fashion shows, court dates, ex-lovers, and culture clashes pack the punch in to this drama-erotic sequel to Thick when the Chances are Slim. Feel the blaze…a Nah’Sun blaze.
My name is Dr. Ramona Brockett, the research that I will discuss on this episode of The LanceScurv Show comes from my dissertation where I used secondary data from the NCCD archives of the University of Michigan and ran a logistic regression to determine African American (AA) and European American (EA) perceptions of police aggression.
I looked at justified police aggression and unjustified police aggression. When I say, "aggression," I mean police action. The areas of perception included everything from arrests to helping old ladies across the street.
The most important findings were these:
(1) AA's in the upper glass approved of police aggression at a lower rate than lower class EA's;
(2) Working class AA's and Working class EA's approved similarly police to both justified and unjustified police aggression; and,
(3) working class AA's approve of both justified and unjustified police aggression at a higher rate than the upper class AA's, middle class AA's and lower class AA's. Dissimilarly, EA's approval is proportionate with class. So, upper class A's approve at the highest rates and approval decreases with class.
A second topic we need to explore is my Conceptual Incarceration Theory. This theory looks at the 13th Amendment and I contend that inherent within the wording of the 13Th Amendment, the AA is reinslaved upon incarceration. Thus, the reason why black life is devalued--we are not considered human. Thus, Garner etc., could easily be killed.
Lance and I look forward to your presence and participation in the sharing of my findings.
See you there!

Finally an examination of the Ebola Virus Disease outbreak in West Africa and its impact socially, politically and economically during 2014.
Listen to the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. In our regular PANW reports we look at and analyze the recent open letter written by the newly-elected Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi on the task facing this North African state; the increasing instability threatening Tunisia from Libya where rebels in the post-Gaddafi state continue to their internecine warfare; the lawsuit that was filed by an African American man against the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) accusing the police of racial profiling leading to his arrest; and the ongoing struggle in Missouri to reclaim the just legacy of slain Michael Brown where one of his memorials were destroyed on Dec. 25. The second hour highlights the largest African slave rebellion in New Orleans in 1811 as well as the origins of the United States Women's Rights Movement in the Anti-Slavery Abolitionist struggles of the mid-19th century. The final segment reviews the historic 1951 student strike against school segregation in Prince Edward County, Virginia that was led by 17-year-old Barbara Johns.
Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest.
It's the last show of the year and we'll be live for an after-Christmas show. My guest this week will be author Noah James Hittner. We'll be discussing his books: Something to Give Back, Beyond Victim and Villain & The Modern-Day Buddha.
The Modern-Day Buddha (MDB) is a handy reference guide which offers ten short and impactful techniques that anyone can use on-the-spot to provide a quick, wholesome, and inspiring way to travel through their day-to-day life experience. Quite honestly, it could be called a handbook for wholeness.
Each technique contains an anecdote, accessible insight, and simple suggestions for action steps. All-in-all, it was my intention that the MDB’s message be clearly conveyed in a way that is gentle, efficient, and intriguing.

In the third and concluding volume of the satirical sci-fi trilogy, The Chronicles of Dekaydence, Mother Nature quits God. God quits Heaven. Clowns invade Heaven. Meanwhile, back on earth, Will, Ruby Q and Piccolo pursue their dreams but experience nightmares. They now realise what the Phoenix knew all along - it's not climate change ruining the planet so much as greedy, corrupt adults such as those working for the Company of Dekaydence, under the control of the ruthless Lord di'Abalo. There's a killer chocolate cake on the loose, and a strange drug that erases most anyone who gets in the way of progress. Times, they are a changin' and getting darker by the day. There's a lost mother to encounter; justice for a murdered father; and time to admit a secret love. And then there's Colin, a wild crazy liz'oid addicted to tomato ketchup, that makes the metal critters, the haggoids, Cromarty and Ross, look like cuddly toys.

Listen to this special edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. In this broadcast we will feature our PANW reports on developments in St. Louis County, Missouri where yet another African American youth was shot to death by police on Dec. 23; the upcoming 50th anniversary of the culmination of the voting rights struggle in Selma in 1965; as well as the impact on the declining price of oil in Nigeria. In the second hour we examine the relationship between the growth of capitalism and slavery in the world economic syste. Our third hour does a retrospective history on the role of sugar in western culture and political economy.
Now more than ever, America needs more open and inclusive conversations about the stereotypes on police protection, police brutality, crime, civil liberties, public safety, and social justice in the context of race.
After many years of dissecting the driving factors on the issue of fragmentation and cohesion in American society, many of the same tragedies of error we've seen for years on race controversies continues to pervades the society. Race discussions, debate on race, or even race analysis are the so called inequality taboo topic of conversation in America. Silence on the issue of race only increases suspicions and erratic responses.
We are indeed in a delicate time.
In any democracy, the government belongs to the people, and the police, which exist within the executive branch – enforcing the law, essentially serve as a buffer of balance between individuals and between people -- maintaining law, order, safety and most importantly peace. If a police error results in a tragedy, the police should be the first to demonstrate contrition, not defense of erratic positions. Otherwise, the society is at risk of an increasing political totalitarianism. It is unimaginable for any cultural group to live inequitably compared to the rest of its pairs in the same country, especially one that promises individualism, equal rights before the law, and the four freedoms. And just as one group should not be a burden to another, so should none be sustained at the expense of the other.

This week's Theme: from The ORACLE Presents Ten Pages of Nothing But The Truth Volume 4, Truth #6 FIND
Find a G-D to know, find your true self, find the real friend and family to call your own. Find in your G-D the truth that is yours. Be careful, you might find your truth isn't what you thought it was and may be more than you thiought it could be.
Find a place in your heart, room for the souls who seek to be found. You may be the haven they need to find themselves.
Find the silver lining in the tarnished and tattooed tapestry of life. It may be worn and frayed, but it is your cloak of honor to be worn with pride and the knowledge that each tear is a mark of your triumph over the inevitabilities of life.
