    The bitter irony of the Michael Brown case is that if he had actually put his hands up and said don't shoot, he would almost certainly be alive today. His family would have been spared an unspeakable loss, and Ferguson, Missouri wouldn't have experienced multiple bouts of rioting, including the torching of at least a dozen businesses the night it was announced that Officer Darren Wilson wouldn't be charged with a crime.

    Should There Be Specific Sales Training Just for Minorities?

    in Culture

    This will probably be one of the craziest shows I've done in a long time. I was presented with a question the other day, but in reality, it was a hypothesis, that minorities need a different type of sales training to be successful.

    As some of you already know, I'm always listening to what people say.  My first response to the question was "why would say this?" So I left the conversation shaking my head.

    I want to hear what you have to say about this subject.

    First, the sales industry is not for everyone to begin with. So why would someone say that minorities are a subset of an industry where the majority of people do not like sales?

    Second, a sales concept is not black, white, Latin, or Asian. Why does sales training need to be conceptualized uniquely for minorities?

    What would this alternate, conceptualize sales training include?

    Let's talk about this subject.

    Igbo and Yoruba? 

    Indian & Nigerian? 

    We we see a spate of these differences in relationships and marriages nowadays. A wonderful contributor and listener suggested we talk about this topic and I find it very interesting that we have this trend where folks are getting into relationships and marriages from very opposite sects, beliefs and it makes me wonder how do they make it work between them????

    Black, White, and Read All Over -- Write Stuff -- 12/2/2014

    in Radio

    It is a disease that has ravaged the United States for over two hundred years and beyond. It has affected every aspect of our society from the way we dress to the way we perceive each other. Like a giant looming monster, it watches as it destroys one generation after the next, its viral effect as deadly and damaging as any infestation. 

    It puts people in boxes. It labels one group different from another. There have been those in the past who have worked diligently to destroy its influence but for every step forward, there have been several steps backward. 

    Racism in the U. S. is the insidious evil. The kind of evil that can never be good for anyone. For all the talk of the multi-culturalism and diversity, this thing still exists. One has to ask the question...will it truly ever go away.

    Join me as I chat with Sean T. Smith, author of Objects of Wrath and Children of Wrath as we have a frank and open discussion. You can call in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air. Or, you can download the WLUV radio mobile app today. Tune in!

    Will Police Body Cams Really Help, It Didn't With Eric Gardner

    in Current Events

    Police body cams may tell a story but the product it produces didn't make a difference in the Eric Gardner case. We witnessed as a nation and world a man die on video right in front of over vary eyes and there is no indictment. Clearly there is a problem with the grand jury system but also a clear problem with racism period. Just when you think, we have made progress, have we really? I dont think so we dont control a large percent of wealth, we have a black president, mostly unsupported by a white congress. We had black communities mostly policed by white officers or mostly department with majority black officers headed up by a white chief. They have some sort of control mechanism in place. Its just a new form of slavery without the chain being apparent. They control us politically, regardless that we have some representation in congress, who is the majority- thank you if you got that. They control major corporations that provide food, housing, transportation, banking so what's left- kind of caught in the middle I would say.

    in Music

    Michele Norris

    NPR's Michele Norris, former regular host of "All Things Considered," just won a Peabody Award from the University of Georgia for her self-funded work, "The Race Card Project."  It invites people to submit 6-word phrases or sentences, describing their experiences and impressions of race in America.  

    About The Race Card Project, by Michele Norris

    Peabody Award

    The Race Card Wall

    Make Your Race Card

    The Race Card Project encourages people to condense their observations and experiences about race into one sentence with just Six Words.  Since it began in 2010, the Project has received tens of thousands of Six Word stories from all over the world.  The Race Card Project has earned a deep well of trust on a thorny topic as evidenced by the candor and depth of the submissions.The Six Word essays featured on the website, theracecardproject.com, provide a window into America’s private conversations about race and cultural identity.  As such, the website has been used by schools, businesses, churches and even the military to foster a dialogue about race. The Six Word stories are also featured regularly in reports by Michele Norris on NPR’s Morning Edition.

    School Punishes Black Girl More Severely Than White Girl

    in Religion

    These days the stories of racial injustice just don’t stop.  At Dutchtown middle school in Henry County Georgia, two girls, one Black and one White, were accused of writing graffiti on the wall of a gym bathroom.  The Black girl was punished far harsher than her White friend.

    This type of biased treatment goes beyond race and has landed squarely in the realm of skin color.  Yes, studies show that darker skinned girls are punished more severely than light skinned ones.

    Obviously, students displaying ill behavior must suffer the consequences of their actions.  But the punishment should be the same if the violation is the same.  This injustice has been going on in greater society for far too long.  The question is, will or should society sit idly by while these injustices are perpetrated on the youngest amongst us?  What course of action should be taken to correct this great evil?  These are just a couple of the questions that will be entertained in the Virtual Living Room.

    We air programs on Blog Talk Radio at the following times: Sun 2:00pm, Mon 8:00pm, Tue 8:00pm, Wed 7:00pm, Thu 8:00pm, Fri 7:00pm & Sat 9:00am.  All times are Eastern Standard Time.
