SORT BY Relevancy
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!

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.

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.

I have received a ton of comments and emails lately with the term “prepper burn out”, used in them. The reality is much of this is seasonal, I am now going into my fourth Christmas season producing this show and I can tell you, “burn out” for many is part of the good old fashioned “winter blues”. Hell the shorter days, cold nights and dampness make you down enough, thinking about the threats out there sure as hell doesn’t make things any brighter.
Yet the issue is real, it is also why I spend a ton of time on subjects such as gardening, permaculture, health, cooking, etc. Some criticize me for this, stating stupid nonsense such as “today I REALLY prepared unlike yourself”. Such fools probably think listening to some shock jock ramble on about the new world order while cleaning a gun they never fired is “really prepping”.

Red Elk was the first guest elder on Prophecykeepers Radio and we are very grateful to him for his wisdom!
URGENT! ALL visitors .... READ THIS:
Due to the upcoming Earth Shift, there is an event that has recently started that, if you are unaware of it, may cause you mental distress ... even Madness.
Our inner Earth's plates are grating, creating a vibration that is now opening, or thinning, various "veils". All will be experiencing mental/body "shifts" due to this.
The veils will get thinner and much more frequent as time goes on. These veils will reveal phenomena, such as visually seeing Angels, Demonic Beings, various Inner Land Beings, more UFO sightings, etc.
Parallel Time Shifts will take place as well. We are made of the Earth, and are thus attuned to it. What has already started, and will get stronger, is as natural as breathing. By BEING AWARE that these things are before you, you will not be as anxious. We serve an awesome Heavenly Father.
This knowledge alone will allow you to accept and understand. BE NOT AFRAID!
Again, THIS IS NATURAL, and happens at each earth flip.
Bend like a green reed
and you'll be safe.

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
Are some in the black community playing the blame game when in fact we should be blaming ourselves.
Ferguson and Staten Island incidents prove racism. Brown was far from a model citizen. He pilfered cigars from a convenience store and then bullied the proprietor when he tried to stop him. Then, he and a friend walked down the middle of the street, a stupid and dangerous practice. Officer Wilson asked him to use the sidewalk because of the situation, not because Brown was trolling innocently along while being black as the media would have one believe. Instead of complying, Brown escalated the situation by back-talking. I agree the number of shots fired sounds excessive, but a grand jury after reviewing all the evidence found otherwise. Staten Island, There was excessive force, was not a racial thing either as the victim’s own daughter so stated. Why do we want to make every cop-suspect into a racial event? There is a target on every young black man’s back indeed! Maybe if we didn’t commit crimes out of proportion to other people in society, the police wouldn’t view us with such suspicion. Why don’t we own the fact that some of us need to change our behavior in order to gain respect. Racism does exist but so does the lack of respect for our representation in public.
This story was written on the internet. I thought it pointed out some problems we have in our community. So I took it and made it into how I felt it should have been written. So here is the link to the oringnal story. http://www.metrowestdailynews.com/article/20141217/Opinion/141216655/?Start=2#sthash.z6EKlKEK.dpuf
