    Is slavery the blame, for the issues that Blacks face TODAY?

    in Education

    Often times I hear that Black people(specifically Black Americans/African-Americans) continues to suffer TODAY, because we don't know our culture, being that everything was stripped away from us during slavery. I also hear that slavery CURRENTLY, plays a part in Black men and women socially and economically, I.E. marriage, parenting, unity, support of each other etc. Although slavery(physical sense) has officially been abolished since roughly 1865, do you think it's possible for it to be having an impact?  If so, how? 


    This thinking is interesting because, post-slavery has been some of the most prominent times for Blacks. Families were together, Black businesses were booming, and they were supported by other Blacks, HBCU's were being founded, musical content was more uplifting and empowering, organizations like The Civil Rights, The NAACP, Black Panthers, Women's Suffrage Group etc, were formed. If slavery has that much of an impact on our social and economic status TODAY, why didn't it affect the people of the early 1900's-mid 1900's in the same way?

    BLACKOUT MEDIA CHANGING THE NARRATIVE OF BLACKS IN THE MEDIA

    in Self Help

    Butterfly Evolution is turning the mic over to Amber Ivy and Jeremy Johnson/Blackout Media.  Blackout Media reports...


    According to the New Pittsburgh Courier and Free Press, there were some 18 black-owned stations in 2006, only 1.3% of all TV stations. In 2012 that number dropped to 5 and by 2013 it was zero due to buyouts by larger companies.


    It is painful to see how our black brothers and sisters are portrayed on the news, television, and even movies. In 2015, directors continue to deal with systematic issues that cause black films with good storylines to not get funded because there is not a market for "good black films".


    We have a trillion dollar buying power, so guess what WE are the market FOR?  Join us as we discuss blacks in media and changing the narrative.  We will also discuss the Black America 2.0 campaign to blackout media starting in May.  Any media that continuously shows blacks in less than desirable light, we encourage you to stop watching. Yes to include, Hip Hop and Reality TV.  


    Join Butterfly Evolution in welcoming Blackout Media, Host, Tammy Gaitor and Rodney Jordan are looking forward to this discussion. Listen/comment at 818-691-7406 or register as a follower of the show in order to join the live chat.  www.blogtalkradio.com/butterflyevolution.org

  • Blacks & The Cops

    in Politics

    America is a funny land.


    Not funny as in "ha ha," but funny as in strange.


    So strange that even though cops have historically been at odds with Blacks, people try to pretend that there is something else going on in a so-called justice system that sometimes seems like it persecutes just us.


    But anyone who has lived in a poor neighborhood with their eyes and mind open realizes that the "Thin Blue Line," is typically erected between the "haves" and the "have nots," frequently doling out abuse to the "have nots."


    And, the "have nots" don’t always get their day in court when there is abuse, which is why periodically, the people speak in the loudest voice possible—riots.


    Ferguson spoke in that loud voice and now, Baltimore is speaking as well.


    Perhaps no city has the reputation for rioting that Los Angeles has earned. 


    This April 29, marked the 23rd anniversary of the notorious LA Riots.


    And it is business as usual, from Rodney King to Micheal Brown and from Eric Garner to Freddy Gray, countless Black men and women in between, as well as throughout American history.

    Black Lives Matter...Does It Really Matter To Blacks?

    in Current Events

    Everyday we read or see in our cities and towns people protesting because a Black Life has been taken by a non-Black.

    George Zimmerman recently stated that he had no regrets for killing a young black male. Is is because he is a racist or he has adopted the mind set of blacks, that Black Lives Don't Matter?

    We have been up and arms over the murders of blacks by non-blacks.

    The bigger issue is when we said "Black Lives Matters"; the question is, does Black Lives Matter to Blacks?

    Tune in as Cruz and his special guest Author Karen Duffie, whose son was murdered by another person of color. Black on Black crime is out of control problem in Black America.

    Are Blacks Hypocrites? Does Black Lives Matter To Blacks?

    Andre Controversa Presents: Police Violence Against Blacks

    in Politics Conservative

    Our show is only an hour again tonight, but this time we have a real debate going. The topic will be, police violence and murder rates in the black community.


    Facing off sparring partners will be Sam Sinyangwe with Mapping Police Violence, and the Movement.org, and Ted Hayes. Ted Hayes has been a homeless activist for decades in Southern California, and is currently crusading against illegal immigration, which he sees as an assault on the black community, specifically as it impacts the descendants of chattel slaves and Jim Crow survivors.


    But he has plenty of opinions on this topic.


    Please tune in at 10-00 p.m. Ct, at www.blogtalkradio.com/andrecontroversa.


     


    Feel free to call in at 914-803-4350.
