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.

Today we'll hear all about Fire Dragon, a Network intrusion detection system or NIDS. It's an independent platform that identifies intrusions by examining network traffic and monitors multiple hosts. NIDS gain access to network traffic by connecting to a network hub, switch configured for port mirroring or a network tap. In a NIDS, sensors are placed at choke points in the network, often in the network “demilitarized zone” or at network borders. Sensors capture all network traffic and analyze the content of individual packets for malicious traffic.
If you are a parent and raising a black boys in America, you have reason to be concerned. Martin Luther, Jr hoped that black people would be judged by the content of their character not the color of their skin, but who cares about character anymore?

The call-in number to the show is 713-955-0734.
Why does the mainstream media and the school system teach us that black history started with slavery. You never hear about the black people of the bible or those black people in Africa, specifically the land of Egypt where scientist are still trying to discover how the pyramids were built. Kings and Queens of a royal hertiage made to believe that they are only decendants of slaves.
What was the Most Damaging Event in the History of Black People? Slavery, Intregration, Black Wall Street Bombing? The Assination of Black Leaders such as Fred Hampton, MLK, Malcolm X ect? The Creation of Co-intel Pro? The War on Drugs? The Feminist Movement?
What is the current state of the black people in America and how do we continue to rebuild?
Join us for our Show @ 10PM tonight as we address these issues and more.

Yes it is Black History Month. I hope this is about the 100th time you have read or heard it this month. That would mean, people are talking about it…and that is the purpose of having a Black History Month. There is a lady that posts the most important tidbits of information regarding Black History on FaceBook I have seen. The site is https://www.facebook.com/groups/SDAAGRG/ Her name is Beverely A. Harper. I wanted to get her on the show but learned she is blind. Check out her posting at Friends of San Diego African-American Genealogy Research Group.
“To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.” Kofi Annan.
Kofi Atta Annan is a Ghanaian diplomat who served as the seventh Secretary-General of the United Nations from January 1997 to December 2006. Annan and the United Nations were the co-recipients of the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize "for their work for a better organized and more peaceful world." Currently, he is the Chairman of The Elders, a group founded by Nelson Mandela. The quote speaks to a mindset that any young man or woman should learn and hear from their parents, their school counselors, and even their church pastor, no matter their color or creed.
It is with this quote we bring you our Black History Show for February of 2015. Kimberly Johnson, a young researcher, will be around to help me out. Stop on by and join in on the fun.

Every therapist agrees that the impact of a traumatic event goes beyond physical damage. The emotional toll can result in a wide range of intense emotions and it takes time to recover emotional equilibrium. Being Black in America can be extraordinarily stressful. Being treated as “second class” citizen, called names, and being excluded shatter all sense of security, causing feelings of helpless and vulnerability in a dangerous world where feelings of anxiousness and uncertainty. These unsettling thoughts and feelings can only fade if life circumstances change. How to cope with feelings of injustice, racism and covert discrimination is a topic of debate in many Black American communities.
People react in different ways to traumatic events. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to think, feel or respond. The American public is intolerant of the reactions and feelings of Black Americans in Baltimore when they rioted protesting the murder of an unarmed Black American man. The city was put under curfew and the street activists were called “thugs”. There was no effort to send in counselors to help the “traumatized” people with the emotional event.
Persons who ignore feelings will slow the healing process; however, in the Black community, “forgive and forget” is the tenet. Following the killing of nine Black people in Charleston, South Carolina in a church during a prayer meeting by a young White American, statements of “we forgive him” were made before the dead was buried. That is not benevolence; that is denial.
The symptoms of traumatic stress include physical manifestations as well as emotional, such as, pounding heart, feelings of choked up, stomach churning, racing thoughts, raised blood pressure, headaches and difficulty sleeping.
