SORT BY Relevancy
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.
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!

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.

Today's show goes back into the bible as I'll take a look at a few chapters and passages that show God's love for His children, His plan, and his forgiveness and mercy for all of us that just don't seem to get it right in these flesh bodies. It seems elementary, but I think one of the things we all need to remind ourselves of sometimes is that as He says, His ways are not our ways and He has far more patience quite frankly than you, I, or anyone else does. So, today, we'll take a look at some of the parts of the bible that indicate this, beginning at 4:30 and archived after that

America needs all the help she can get. The Republicans won't do what they promised because even though those promises got them elected in massive numbers, they are afraid that they will make the democrats and the American people mad if they do. I know, it doesn't make any sense but that is how they roll. It is time to change that like Reagan did, and change the party. I am not for a third party, never have been but think the way to do it is to change the Republicans back to what they were before liberalism started to infiltrate them. Who's with me?
As for "it shouldn't be long now," Duke Brooks the leader of Conservative Nation Media told me that we would be back after the election. So, hoping that is going to be soon, as I feel we need to be back so we can work to help America again. Keep your fingers crossed folks. If it doesn't happen soon, I will start up my premium show again and do it on my own. The word needs to get out.
An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Essential oils are also known as volatile oils, ethereal oils, aetherolea, or simply as the "oil of" the plant from which they were extracted, such as oil of clove. An oil is "essential" in the sense that it carries a distinctive scent, or essence, of the plant.Essential oils do not form a distinctive category for any medical, pharmacological, or culinary purpose. They are not essential for health.
Essential oils are generally extracted by distillation, often by using steam. Other processes include expression or solvent extraction. They are used in perfumes, cosmetics, soaps and other products, for flavoring food and drink, and for adding scents to incense and household cleaning products.
Essential oils have been used medicinally in history. Medical applications proposed by those who sell medicinal oils range from skin treatments to remedies for cancer and often are based solely on historical accounts of use of essential oils for these purposes. Claims for the efficacy of medical treatments, and treatment of cancers in particular, are now subject to regulation in most countries.As the use of essential oils has declined in evidence-based medicine, one must consult older textbooks for much information on their use.
Interest in essential oils has revived in recent decades with the popularity of aromatherapy, a branch of alternative medicine that claims that essential oils and other aromatic compounds have curative effects. Oils are volatilized or diluted in a carrier oil and used in massage, diffused in the air by a nebulizer, heated over a candle flame, or burned as incense.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Essential_oil.
North Florida’s Mixed-blood Indian People, Rediscovery of a Forgotten People
In the early 1800s, dozens of Siouan-speaking Cheraw families, including Catawbas and Lumbees, fled war and oppression in the Carolinas and migrated to Florida; just as native Appalachicola Creeks were migrating away. Being neither Black nor White, the Cheraw descendants were persecuted by the harsh “racial” dichotomy of the Jim Crow era and almost forgot their proud heritage. Today they have rediscovered their past. This is their story.
Creek Eastern Siouan Cheraw Indians, generally located in the panhandle of Florida. Related groups (Porch Creek, Redbones, Brass Ankles, etc) in which we can establish a surname connection locally or by association later (Mt Tabor Community).
The Apalachicola River Indian Community Conference is a non-profit community-based tribal organization that works for the political, social, legal, and spiritual welfare of the Creek/Eastern Siouan Cheraw Indian people in the panhandle of north Florida. Its focus is to foster tribal cultural identity and unity, documentary historical research into our origins and history, and provide venues for communication, awareness, and growth. We are the descendants of the Indian people who lived in the 3 settlements whose history is documented in the “Our History” part of this website. These are surnames in our community:
