June : Employment and Blacks in the Workplace
According to the Washington Post since the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) started reporting unemployment by race over 42 years ago, blacks have always been unemployed at a higher rate than whites. According to the August 2014 BLS unemployment number, blacks had an unemployment rate of 11.4% which is twice that of whites (5.3%).
According to Diversity Inc. There are six Black CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, accounting for 1.2% of all Fortune 500 CEOs.
June is focused on employment as well as diversity in the workplace. It is well known that diversity is lacking at the top of many of the companies we support. We are not asking for positions, we are saying where are the mentors who are already there and how can we craft more leaders? Many of us have experienced working twice as hard to still be in the same position and know the feeling of training folks who then become our boss. It is not okay that a company has 30% of its employees who are minorities and less than 10% in upper management. We have to call diversity in the workplace to carpet and challenge companies to do better. Employment also means lowering the unemployment rate, by ensuring that individuals in our neighborhoods know how to fill out an application, have interview skills, and know the simple basics of searching for a job. These are simple steps we all can take.

Let's talk about Solutions and not Focus on the Problem.
The National Urban League released its 39th edition of the State of Black America—Save Our Cities: Education, Jobs + Justice, evaluating these issues and their impact on equality in America.
The organization says “the state of black America is in crisis,” and the report’s findings provide a sobering but necessary look into the challenges affecting the black community.
KB AND THE REVOLUTIONARY RYDERS come to you live from the front lines of black America to enlighten and inform. The blackman has always been the butt of Hollywoods joke. From D.W. Griffiths Birth of a nation to the modern day practice of casting white men in movies about egypt, Hollywood has been one of the most racist institutions in this country. Black actors are marginalized and áre very seldom chosen for lead roles, as a matter of fact most black actors are relegated to side roles if any at all. Despite thses facts, some black actors make it by selling their soul to the devil. These brothers and sisters then become pawns who can never speak to any social issues or stand with the people be cause they fear losing status. Why has Hollywood portayed our people as mongrels, savages, buffons and idiots? The black woman is also a victim of negative portrayals and stereotyping. When will we wake up and shut this industry down?
Tune in tonight at 7:30 Pm cst
The Real News Behind The News starts our new daily radio show with an explosive episode. We ask the question should black America say F××× France in light of all It's recent and historical racial oppression of black people. Also we give you the real deal as to what is going on in France and how it ties to the war in Syria which we have been telling you about for 4 years now.
Black Americans have been through a lot in this nation. We are seeing movements gaining ground but the one thing they are lacking is a plan. This plan must be something we can get behind. Complaining isn't going to fix our issues at all. Something tangible that we can get behind to change laws is the way to go.
