SORT BY Relevancy
This installment of The Forbidden Fruit will look at the subtle affect of white privilege on Black America. With the current social unrest moving throughout the country, the opinions are racially divided. Some people are quick to address the riots as an isolated incidents and not the by-product of a much bigger and more complex problem. How can you ask Black America to forget the past, suck it up and move on? The past is the past, so leave it there..right? Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. Subtle White Privilege can be more dangerous than in your face racism. We all need to get along, but at the same time, we have to understand our differences. It's politically correct to say that you don't see color, but is that healthy? Let's address this issue head-on and not just let it fester. There has been a lot of hurt that has been swept under the rug. That rug is getting awfully bumpy.
What white america is asking black america to do, is like an angry mob breaking into your house, rapping the women, beating the men, stealing all the valuables in the house, then setting it on fire, and then a week later showing up and asking you to just don't ever mention it again and suck it up and move on. Yes, you can suck it up and move on, but some very important steps are missing. The attacker never owned up to it, nor did he apologize, nor did he offer to make it right economically. He just expected you to pull yourself up by your own bootstraps, when you didn't have any boots to start with. I think we need this talk here on The Fruit.

It's impossible to ignore the role that more than four centuries of hatred and inhumane atrocities committeed against African-Americans plays in the stagnated state of Black America. Slave-era slayings have been upgraded to police slayings, sabotaging of property and financing has been upgraded to blockading of Blacks' access to loans, home ownership,qualified employment positions, and fair education. But despite these expected and foreseen sabotaged tactics, White America and many older African-Americans, from parallel viewpoints, believe that there are aspects of Black America's stagnation that falls squarely on the shoulders of Black America itself. Citations of laziness, lack of involvement,failure to vote, or attend meetings are personal uninhibited choices that contribute to the damages of Black America and continues to be a self-erected barrier to progress. Are there parts of our damages that can be fixed by us? Or is White Supremacy atrocities to solely to blame? Join in tonight with your thoughts by calling 347-327-9967 at 10:30 PM EST.
PT 3 STATE OF BLACK AMERICA: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT. RECENTLY WE WERE FOUND OUT THAT POLICE IN FERGUSON WERE USING THE PEOPLE AS A CASH COW TARGETING PEOPLE OF THE CITY TO KEEP REVENUE FLOWING THROUGH THE SMALL CITY. IN A REPORT BY THE URBAN LEAGUE IT IS SAID THAT 70% OF BLACKS SAY THEY HAVE BEEN MISTREATED BY THE POLICE ALL ACROSS AMERICA, THAT 10 TIMES HIGHER THAN OUR WHITE COUNTERPARTS.
STATE OF BLACK AMERICA FOR YEARS HAVE SEEN MEN AND WOMEN LOCKED UP WITH MUCH HIGHER SENTENCES AND HIGHER BAILS AMOUNTS...NO ONE WILL GO ON RECORD TO SAY IT'S HAPPENING DUE TO BEING AFRAID OF THEIR JOBS. IT IS REPORTED THAT WHILE WE MAKE UP 30% OF THE POPULATION 60% OF THAT IS IN PRISON. FROM 1970 TO 2005 PRISON POPULATION GREW 700% IS HIGHER NOW FOR SURE.
WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT CRIME ARE BLACKS AND MINORITIES BEING TARGETED ?

Continuing our discussion on the state of the youth in Black America and the roles we play in it...
Universally, the unpopular teen will engage in behavior or activities that may seem uncharacteristic to the teen or outrageous to society. For Black youths, the universal standards of popularity are doubled, as just being Black is projected as a disgusting quality, and the horrors they endure because of their race is being divided up between being denied that it exists by Whites who are too uncomfortable thinking that anyone in their community are racists, and Blacks who are too afraid to "rock the boat" in White America. Throw in the generational changes made in the Black community village, and you are left with a volatile group of individuals facing big issues with small aresenals and no experienced leaders to guide them through the process. SInce it's clear that one half of the world has no interest in their betterment, how much of a role does the shunning and inaction of Black AMerica play in the creation of poor self-esteem in its own youth?
THE 2015 STATE OF BLACK AMERICA REPORT WAS JUST RELEASED A FEW WEEKS AGO AND AS SO MANY TIMES PASSED, WE ARE HEARING THE SAME SONGS OF THE PAST. UNEMPLOYMENT IS DOWN BUT STILL IN DOUBLE DIGITS, EDUCATION SHOULD BE HIGHER BUT NEVER REALLY IS ADDRESSED, BLACK ON BLACK CRIME IS A MAJOR PROBLEM THAT NO ONE SEE YET THEY ARE AROUND IT EVERY DAY.
ALL THIS WEEK WE ARE GOING TO TAKE A CLOSE LOOK AT OF THE MAJOR TOPICS IN THE 2015 STATE OF BLACK AMERICA AND BROKE THEM DOWN FROM A STREET VIEW AND TRY TO BRING SOME AWARENESS TO THE ISSUES THAT SHOULD MATTER NOT ONLY TO BLACKS, BUT TO ALL RACES OF PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD UNDERSTAND THAT THIS PROBLEM IS NOT ONLY HERE BUT IT IS ALSO IN OVERSEAS AND IN SOUTH AMERICA AND ANY COUNTRY YOU CAN NAME.
THE 2015 STATE OF BLACK AMERICA, MAY JUST BE AND SO BE CALLED THE STATE OF THINGS TO COME: GLOBAL CHAOS.

Topic Of The Night: Can We Save Black American?
I had a conversation where things got heated because I stated I was going to be the one to save “Black America”. He doesn't believe this is possible, he believes black people are destroying the world and we wont ever have shit.
So, this got me thinking…
My question to my people is… Are we just going to give up? If thats the case, what is the purpose of knowing this information and never doing anything with it? Are we suppose to just live this life and wait to die? Or are we suppose to gather with other conscious thinkers and move out the country?
MAN FUCK ALL THAT!
Were supposed to be out here self educating and teaching those that do not know. Were suppose to discuss problems of Black America and come up with solutions. Were suppose to do everything we can so our future generations can be set.
So my question to my people is, what is your purpose on this Earth? Lets have a conversation and discuss some solutions!
Call in at 10 PM @ 347-996-5750 to let your voice be heard!
