Why do blacks and whites to often allow color to prevent unification on basic issues of freedom and liberty?
Who says Tea Party types can't unite with Ferguson Protesters?...can you imagine the 'bridge' of unity that would create?, the power that would send?
And who says black activist can't join with Tea Party on certain issues of basic rights and liberty?
And who benefits most from this divide in the populace?
There has been many discussions about whether or not integration helped or hurt Blacks. There are many compelling arguments on both sides of this discussion. I'd like to open up the dialogue for different perspectives. Do you want your kids in an all Black/White school system? Do you think integration was a tactic from Caucasains to benefit them? Were Blacks better or worse, OVERALL, when we were segregated?
When having this discussing, there are often two recurring points that are made. When people speak about the Pros, they often point out: Better job and educational opportunities. When they speak about the Cons, they often point out the lost of Black family unity. Which side are you on?
Peace and Blessings,
This evening on the Porch we will discuss how predictive programing and an ever ready Boule' class play roles in creating apologetic, sympathetic, and forgiving Negroes that stagnates any ground we make in racial politics. We're going to talk about how that creates the climate for the ongoing condition of our community. We're going to dive into recent events such as the apology of Levi Pettit, president of Oklahoma University's Sigma Alpha Epsilon who was recently recorded singing a bigotted song about lynching Black people as he was escorted to the news conference by State Senator Anastasia Pittman and a hoard of other forgiving blacks and look at the history of such behavior and the collateral damage that does to the progression of Black liberation.
So,make sure that you tune in and if you feel strong enough about it call in! So, make sure that you tune in to this week's episode of From the Front Porch with Professor Carl Tone Jones on The Initiative Radio Network at (914) 803-4571 at 6:30pm Est Friday evening.

Who were the first Black Elected Officials? During the month of November, as the country gears up to re-elect or vote in the next wave of politicians, Black Reconstruction will revisit the Reconstruction era to pay homage to the Black Men who came before Obama. During this tumultuous time, Blacks not only established townships, they also positioned themselves to be an integral part of government.
At a Glance.. In 1855, Brownhelm Township, founded by Col. Henry Brown, gained notoriety throughout the U.S, when the township elected an African-American to government office. The NY Syracuse Daily Journal, May 31, 1855 reported that John Mercer Langston was a fugitive slave who had been elected clerk. Brownhelm's early residents had long been known for their strong anti-slavery stance; and Col. Henry Brown's home on the Lake Shore was often a final stop on the Underground Railroad, before reaching Canada by boat. African-American Firsts: Government
Local elected official: John Mercer Langston, 1855, town clerk of Brownhelm Township, Ohio.
State elected official: Alexander Lucius Twilight, 1836, the Vermont legislature.
Governor (appointed): P.B.S. Pinchback served as governor of Louisiana from Dec. 9, 1872-Jan. 13, 1873, during impeachment proceedings against the elected governor.
U.S. Representative: Joseph Rainey became a Congressman from South Carolina in 1870 and was reelected four more times.
U.S. Senator: Hiram Revels became Senator from Mississippi from Feb. 25, 1870, to March 4, 1871, during Reconstruction.
There have only been a total of five black senators in U.S. history: the remaining two are Blanche K. Bruce [1875-1881] and Barack Obama

White Privilege - 1) A right, advantage, or immunity granted to or enjoyed by white persons beyond the common advantage of all others; 2) an exemption in many particular cases from certain burdens or liabilities; 3) A special advantage or benefit of white persons; 4) display of white privilege, a social expression of a white person or persons demanding to be treated as a member or members of the socially privileged class.
Today, we are afforded the gains of astounding technical advantages that range from phones being the size of credit cards, to cars that start with the push of a button. However, with all the creations and inventions that are supposed to make our lives easier and more enjoyable, we still are battling with prejudice and racism.
On this episode of Hot Topics Talk Radio, we’re going to tackle the term and subject matter of white privilege, as it relates to how we (black and white) live among each other, and how some may feel about what advantage they have over another simply because of the color of their skin.
Join us on Wednesday, March 4, 2015, at 8:00pm PST/11:00pm EST, to discuss the “Face of White Privilege”, and how it shows up in our everyday lives.
You’re invited to listen and comment on this very controversial topic by calling (646)200-3148. Or listen from your computer at: http://www.hottopicstalkradio.com/hot-topics-talk-radio.html, or listen and join the chatroom here on BlogTalkRadio.

RACE: Any of the major biological divisions of mankind, distinguished by color and texture of hair, color of skin and eyes, stature, bodily proportions, etc: many ethnologists now consider that there are only three primary divisions, the Caucasian (loosely ‘white race ), Negroid (loosely ‘black race ) and Mongoloid (loosely, ‘yellow race ), with various subdivisions: the term has acquired so many unscientific connotations that in this sense it is often replaced in scientific usage by ‘ethnic stock or ‘group .”
As much as we would prefer not to discuss it, skin tone complications of the past still afflict the psyche of present-day America, according to an article by TheGrio. And, to be sure, the studies the article cites don’t isolate the issue to the black community alone. Rather, the studies report that the issue is pervasive in mainstream America as well.
Even employers seem to prefer the lighter-skin blacks among us:
A 2006 University of Georgia study showed that employers prefer light-skinned black men to dark-skinned men, regardless of their qualifications. We found that a light-skinned black male can have only a Bachelor’s degree and typical work experience and still be preferred over a dark-skinned black male with an MBA and past managerial positions,” said Matthew S. Harrison in 2006, then a doctoral student in applied industrial organizational psychology at Georgia.The study, which sampled over 12,000 black women imprisoned in North Carolina between 1995 and 2009, showed that light-skinned women were sentenced to 12 percent less time behind bars than their darker-skinned counterparts. The results also showed that having light skin reduces the actual time served by 11 percent.
Confederate Soldiers Can Be "Black Like Me." Call (347)857-3293 to speak, or listen by Internet. The tapes will be available 24/7 at Blogtalkradio after the live show. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. told us that we should judge people not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character, and he was not talking only to white people. Assuming that everyone who is black is a friend to African Americans is ridiculous. Whipping boys were not white, and not all of them were coerced. Some blacks did and still do enjoy damaging or even killing African Americans for elite white supremacists, especially if they profit financially by doing so. Therefore, we must recognize that one's skin color is not a uniform. Nobody can determine on which side of the "War against Black America" a soldier is fighting merely by observing his complexion. If not for Black Confederates, African Americans would fare significantly better in the 21st century than we do.

LISTEN TO GEORGE JACKSON RADIO 8:00 PM EST
TONIGHT'S SOLEDAD BROTHER READING: PG 51
GENERAL GEORGE JACKSON" ON GAINING CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE
"Have you ever wondered how you and I and all our kind lost their identity so fast? The last blacks were brought into this country only 75 to 80 years ago, three generations at most. This is too short a time for us to have lost as much as we have. No other people have completely been divorced from their own as we have in such a short period. I don't even know my name. Have you ever wondered about this? The answer is found in the fact that we lost control of the circumstances surrounding our lives. We were alienated from our sources, isolated, and remolded to fit in certain forms, to fill a specific purpose. No consideration was or has ever been given to our being anything other than what we were originally intended to be (I ask for electronics or drafting and I'm told to be practical). You must realize, understand fully, that we have little or no control over our lives. You must then stop giving yourself pain by feeling that you failed somewhere. You have not failed. You have been failed, by history and events, and people over whom you had no control. Only after you understand this can you then go on to make the necessary alterations that will bring some purpose and value to your life; you must gain some control!"
