SORT BY Relevancy
This Saturday on Critical Discourse, what else would we possibly be taking about?
Election 2014, what happened?
Bigger divide between the GOP and Dems, or surprising confluence of the minds?
What does it mean for the country? Forward or backward?
What was the role of media?
Should the black community be concerned?
Was it an anti-Obama referendum?
Will this affect how you?
This Saturday on Critical Discourse, we intend to cover the following, and not in any particular order:
Obama’s comments before the U.N. General Assembly
The resignation of Attorney-General Eric Holder
The Apology of Ferguson’s Police Chief to the Brown Family
The dire situation of Muslimah’s in Homeless Shelters (hopefully, to continue in full, next week)
Unlimited Vacation Time for Employees?
Well, we heard it, have it, Barack Obama’s “comprehensive immigration reform”.
Did you hear the speech or read the transcript?
Speaking of “script”, did he actually make an inference to Holy Scripture? Well, he never claimed to have any sense of shame in what he furthers and represents.
So, according to Mr. Obama, almost 5 million illegal immigrants, who have not committed any crimes, can stay here, provided they meet certain criteria?
But, isn’t the fact that they are here illegally, a crime?
Yet, the question for those who oppose this Executive Order, lingers; what is to be done about the millions of others, who are here illegally?
Does the country have the resources to appropriately deport them? Even if possible, do conservatives even have the will to do so?
What impact will this have on black Americans (not that I expected Mr. Obama to even consider such)?
Either way, the controversy is far from over, as the GOP promises action, to what is perceived to unconstitutional.
At this writing, there has been no grand jury decision regarding officer Darren Wilson, but if there is, we will certainly discuss the Ferguson / Michael Brown incident and aftermath, as well.
We want to review these points and more, this Saturday, November 22nd , on Critical Discourse
Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: "I will create a vicegerent on earth." They said: "Wilt Thou place therein one who will make mischief therein and shed blood?- whilst we do celebrate Thy praises and glorify Thy holy (name)?" He said: "I know what ye know not."
Violence. We see it on the web, the local and national news.
It seems that either literally or figuratively, we all are getting a taste of the “apple pie” that H-Rap Brown (aka Imam Jamil Al-Amin), spoke of years ago. Make no mistake; within the context of that particular observation, this is far from a sweet dessert, but a bitter acrid cider of devastation and despair.
The well-publicized acts of violence capture the dreaded imagination and hysterical fear of the populace, and the intellectualization of politicians, sociologists and a host of “intellectuals”.
Of particular concern today, is what appears to be a rise in violent behavior by black people, both men and women.
What has happened over time?
Are black people becoming more violent than ever, or are we (including this writer), unwitting victims of a press propaganda machine that disproportionately focuses on violent crimes committed by black people, thus giving others’ a “pass”?
Do the YouTube and Worldstarhiphop videos speak to a complete social, moral, cultural and spiritual breakdown of our community?
What about black women? Are the caricatures in the Madea movies or in in Martin Lawrence sitcoms just comedy, or what many presume are accurate depictions of a “strong” black woman?
What are the factors in our violent behavior? Poverty? Lack of fathers? Diet? Music? “Leaders” who only seem to be concerned when the violent offenders are white?
We want to review these points and more, this Saturday, November 15th, on Critical Discourse
This Saturday on Critical Discourse,
Election Day 2014 is coming up!
Are you voting?
Who, what platforms are you supporting?
SCOTUS affirms Texas’ right to require identification, in order to vote – how else can we know “who’s who”?
Is this a return to Jim Crow, or just a lot of “crow” by those who want to project the “retarded-child” image among black people?
The “tolerant” black community hates Stacey Dash. Is she a murderer? A molester? Sells crack to black people, then became a “respectable” rapper (Remember Big E Smalls’ 10 Crack Commandments)?
What’s her “crime”? She’s a CONSERVATIVE, thus not a member of the Barack Obama-and-the-Democrats-are-never-wrong-always-right club.
We’ve got to look at this more carefully, because we’ve serious disconnect, here, that has to be reconciled.
If know what’s good for you, TUNE IN TO CRITICAL DISCOURSE!
This Saturday on Critical Discourse, we have much to cover, including:
The Ebola Nightmare and its implications – When does it end?
The Brutal Beheading in Oklahoma
Serious Breach of “Her Majesty’s” Secret Service – How secure are any of us?
The Michael Dunn 1st-Degree Murder Conviction – Justice Served?
God Bless the Texas Appeals Court – Infanticide Rebuked
Mumia Abu-Jamal to be Commencement Speaker at Goddard College
"Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may attain taqwaa (reverence and awe of your Lord)." (Holy Qur'an 2:183)
“Whenever you fast, do not look dismal, like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces so as to show others that they are fasting” (Matthew 6:16).
We want to this Saturday, on Critical Discourse, discuss and enact, the process of fasting.
Fasting means many things to many people. For Muslims, it is a pillar of Al-Islam, especially during the month of Ramadan. We read in the Bible, where Jesus (Peace by Upon Him) fasted for 40 days.
However one sees it, fasting provides that opportunity for the abstain from usual habits, and in the process, enter into a more reflective and humbled mood. It provides an opportunity to cleans oneself, spiritually, physically and morally, as we hopefully become more mindful of our environment, and get a chance to "recharge" of sorts.
It the position of thie writer, that from whatever religion, philosophy or ideology one comes from, fasting is of great benefit, and should be a regular practice. We can get into the finer details, but for sure, on Critical Discourse, we want to spread the idea of our selecting one day a week, to fast / abstain.
This writer is certain, that particularly amongst our people, such a practice and discipline will yield positive and transformative results, in ways we could never imagine, so we ask that not only do you listen in, but share with Critical Discourse, your thoughts, ideas and past fasting experience, and how this proposal could be of great help to us.
This Saturday on Critical Discourse, we are pleased to bring back, sister Onlilove, who will continue to picque' and expand our consciousness, regarding the sickness of Colorism.
In particular, we want to discuss the Bill Duke documentary, Black Girls (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9f08-OYGTA).
As was covered during the first Colorism show, I maintain with all vigor, that for Sam L. Jackson, who in his portrayal of the Uncle Tom, in the movie Django Unchained, to insist that he be made to look darker, demonstrated with clarity, the disease of Colorism. Furthermore, knowing the mindset of many black people, were he to portray his character as being ligher-skinned, would have cause a major upheaval amongst us.
Understand, that this show is in now way an attempt to perpetuate Colorism, by fostering rancour and diviseness amongst peoples of African decent, by virtue of differences in skin-tone.
But, we must understand the history that has led to this, and how ultimately, we must heal from and overcome its debilitating effects.
This Saturday, Critical Discourse is pleased to continue our conversation from last week, with our Scientist, researcher and creator of Vitale, Life-Structured Water, Clint Hinson.
We hope to talk more about the importance and impact of water, and in addition, speak more on other aspects on nutrition, primarily from the perspective of Symptometry.
In this, we want to address the issue of hypertension amongst black people, and why Mr. Hinson believes we’ve been sold a “bill of goods” on this.
So please, come one, come all, with your questions and comments, as we delve once again, into this very precarious and sometimes complex maze of understanding human health.
While we acknowledge that, “My people suffer for lack of knowledge”, today is the time to gain and process knowledge.
This Saturday, Critical Discourse is pleased to once again, bring to the table, Clint Hinson, scientist, researcher and creator of Vitale, Life-Structured Water.
He’s been on before, and has literally changed the way I’ve seen water and its vital role in health preservation and enhancement.
I cannot emphasize how important the subject is, as all of our lives, we’ve missed a critical aspect of how not properly hydrating, has been responsible for diabetes and high blood-pressure.
Indeed, “My people suffer for lack of knowledge”.
Though we are winding down the Month of Ramadan, we also want to discuss some of the foods we can eat, to maximize the nutritive aspect of sa’um (fasting).
So tune in to participate; ask questions, comment and contribute in this important effort in the healing and re-pair-a-tion of our people.
Despite his "escape" to Europe for D-Day (perhaps prophetic?), Barack Obama can't seem to shake the intense criticism over his decision to free an American POW, Bowe Bergdahl for 5 Taliban fighters, who for the next year, must remain in Qatar.
Members of both parties have expressed consternation over what was considered to be violation of law on two fronts. One, the long-standing position of never negotiating with terrorists, the other, a rule that Congress is to be notified 30 days in advance, before finalizing prisoner transactions.
Obama,while in Europe, spoke to a sentiment, that the American people understand that Sgr. Bergdahl is "somebody's son", which would imply that the majority would understand the sensitities involved.
But then, another twist.
While it was presumed that the trade was done on behalf of a one serving with valor, reports have suggested that notonly did the sgt. desert his post, but in the process, soldiers were killed in the line of trying to find him.
Either way, this can have a reverberating impact for years to come, not only here, but how American leadership is perceived.
Of course, Hillary Clinton lurks, as we've gotten some remants of her "wisdom" in this matter, all the while,as she maintains her gait, with regards to the tragedy at Benghazi.
It goes without saying, she is following the "swap" saga very closely and surreptitiously, aligning herself for 2016.
SInce we'd been covering Affirmative Action recently, ever heard of a scholarship program for whites, only?
Things just seem to be happening so fast, but our Critical Discourse Family can dissect through it all, so join us this Saturday.
After what I considered to be quite a successful and insightful discussion we had with sister Khadijah, of Khadijah Dawah and Community Services, www.khadijahdawah.org, we will delve into a tough and vital topic, the Ebola crisis.
Keep in mind, that we will update you on the very issue of homelessness of Muslim women, which really, is a glaring picture of homelessness amongst all women.
What is Ebola? Where is it from? From where and when did it originate?
Are there nefarious forces behind its origin and spread?
Is Obama or the CDC to blame for “inadequate response”?
What role will the disease and the overall response, play in the upcoming elections? Will this reverberate to 2016?
How can it be cured?
Can our own healers provide any solutions?
We will look at these, and more, as we try to make sense of this latest plague to hit Mother Africa –
