  • Our Killing Fields: Murder In The Black Community

    in Current Events

    We're in the midst of a late summer spike in violent crime in several predominately Black and poor areas of US cities.  While we're talking about systematic racism, policies at every level of government that perpetuated the wholesale disenfranchisement of African Americans, and the need to assert that our lives that have been marginalized and minimized by that system in so many ways do matter, we have to talk about what is going on in our own house,too.


    What is behind this spike in violence in the Black community, and what are we going to do to about it?

    Were going to have a real discussion about a real problem, and we'll try to come up with some real solutions.


    We've got plenty of strong coffee, bring a big cup,

  • Industrial Hemp & Black-town revival movement update

    in Politics

    Do you know the difference between Hemp & Marijuana? The history behind the prohibition of both? There are 10’s of thousands of uses for Hemp, thousands of benefits and historically hemp has been used to build in Greek, Chinese and Egyptian civilizations.


    Now Marijuana has been delegalized for consumption in states around the U.S, but why is it still classified as a schedule 1 substance?


     “Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Schedule I drugs are the most dangerous drugs of all the drug schedules with potentially severe psychological or physical dependence.”


    Also in this show we will go into the Black town revival movement.  Updates, timeline, goals & tangible steps to make it happen.


    Please join in if you have any questions or anything to contribute to the conversation or just to listen.

  • The American Gun!

    in Politics

    Good evening, tomorrow on The Meter, we will once again cover guns and Americans. Is there a craze and obsession? This week in Virginia a reporter and cameraman were murdered during a live broadcast by a disgruntled former employee, that happened to be gay, black, and an Obama supporter. Top democrats sounded the trumpet for more gun control. Is the problem the guns or is it something else? Also, we will cover the ten years since hurricane Katrina destroyed New Orleans and ravished the Gulf coast. Have the people there been forgotten and if so is racism the culprit? In another development, the Univeraity of Tennessee has announced it will no longer use the pronouns "he" and "she" citing it encourages gender discrimination. Is the future of America genderless? Please join the discussion at 9:00 AM. The call in number is 347-308-8933. Your input is essential.
