They were said to be wooly haired and black skinned. Not dark skinned but black skinned. Were they talking about the Indians or were they talking about us?
We talk with Christopher J. Smith of Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center (SARRC) about emerging technology and research to support individuals with autism.
Christopher J. Smith, Ph.D., Vice President and Director of Research at SARRC, is an experimental psychologist with expertise in the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder and measurement of associated traits. Before joining SARRC, Dr. Smith was an assistant professor in the department of psychiatry at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and still maintains a faculty position. His background is in phenotyping complex psychiatric disorders for the purposes of genetic studies.
Under the direction of Dr. Smith, SARRC’s research team focuses on improving the early detection of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and expediting accurate diagnostic methods; advancing research on effective treatments for autism, both pharmaceutical and behavioral, that lead to an improved quality of life for individuals with the disorder and their families; and educating all kinds of professionals in the community to improve detection, diagnosis and services for individuals with autism.

Tune in as Dr. Hardy makes the long, rich stories of the African Diaspora short, sweet and unforgettable.
Jackson was born 29 August 1958, in Gary, Indiana, to an African-American working-class family. His father, Joseph Jackson, had been a guitarist but had put aside his musical aspirations to provide for his family as a crane operator. Believing his sons had talent, he molded them into a musical group in the early 1960s. At first, the Jackson Family performers consisted of Michael's older brothers Tito, Jermaine, and Jackie. Michael joined his siblings when he was five, and emerged as the group's lead vocalist. He showed remarkable range and depth for such a young performer, impressing audiences with his ability to convey complex emotions. Older brother Marlon also became a member of the group, which evolved into the The Jackson 5.
First taking to the stage at the age of just 11 as part of his family's gig The Jackson 5, Michael Jackson grew quickly into the superstardom which would both reward and plague his life. An apparently unstoppable creative and financial force through the highs of his career, 'The King of Pop' struggled with a confused and turbulent private life that was often made appallingly public. In the wake of his shock death though, it is for his artistry - and not his controversies - that he will be remembered and sadly missed.
As Black History Month draws to a close today, we shall review some highlights and prepare to go into the Virgin Islands History Month which starts tomorrow, the first of March.

Media is an entity that has deteriorated and not progressed over time. Time was media would report events, while events were current. Today's media for the most part do little more than talk. Talk based on misrepresentations, lies, slurs and hatred. Station owners and sponsors allow these tactics. Viewers, listeners, readers and consumers are the target and many come to media not all for the same reason. Time for America's FCC to label media based on content of information being dissimulated to the public. US media seek to influence those who partake, not inform. Media holds on to data and decides importance based on where they are seated on a given day. Media found no reason to pay tribute to America's Black History Month. A discussion about why Blacks celebrate Black History Month has to come to America. Media are our reporters. Media fails to report. I salute Jon Stewart in his successful media run. He understands the need for truth of the matter news daily to people. Stewart will be sorely missed
The 1910 Slocum Massacre in East Texas officially saw between eight and 22 blacks killed, and evidence suggests African-American casualties were 10 times these amounts. Yet the massacre has become a dirty Lone Star secret, remarkably more for the inattention it has received than for its remembrance. Unlike most Texas communities in the early 20th century, the unincorporated town of Slocum — like Rosewood — was mostly African-American, with several black citizens considerably propertied and a few owning stores and other businesses. This alone, in parts of the South, might have been enough to foment violence.
According to the Aug. 2 edition of the Palestine Daily Herald, Gardner said there could be “no justification for shooting men in the back, waylaying or killing them in their houses.” By the time the grand jury findings were reported on Aug. 17, several hundred witnesses had been examined. Though 11 men were initially arrested, seven were indicted — and they were only accused in the murders of five of the identified victims. In the Slocum Massacre, seven men were indicted by a grand jury, but no one was ever tried.
This discussion will focus on the plight of one family (the Holley's) and it is through their eyes that we'll explore what happened at Slocum and what has been done to never forget the price that was paid in that small Texas town.

My intent is to answer majority of the questions that people might have about me! I will be giving Ü some background story into who I am and what has made me the person I have become. I may even give Ü a glimsp into the mental of someone who has a few...issues...this will be a heavily entertaining hour!
