    in Motivation

    The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness a book by Michelle Alexander a civil rights litigator and legal scholar, published in 2010(The New Press). The book deals with race-related and social, political, and legal phenomena in the United States and attempts to apply the term 'The New Jim Crow' to the situation of African Americans in the contemporary United States. The name derives from the original Jim Crow laws that prevailed in the states of the former Confederacy of the U.S. through the 1960s. This book was on The New York Times Best Seller List ten consecutive months, and philosopherCornel West has called it a "secular bible for a new social movement in early twenty-first-century America." In the book Alexander deals primarily with the issue of the current mass levels of incarceration in the United States (with 5%of the world's population, U.S. incarcerates 25%of the world's prisoners) and what she perceives as societal repression of AfricanAmerican men and, to a lesser degree, Latino men. She discusses the social consequences of various policies for people of color, as well as for the US population as a whole. According to Alexander, the majority of black men in large American cities are "warehoused in prisons," their labor no longer needed in the globalized economy. Alexander maintains that many young black men, once they are labeled as "felons," become trapped in a second-class status that they find difficult to escape. The conventional point of view holds that discrimination has mostly ended with the Civil rights movement reforms of 1960s. Alexander claims the U.S. criminal justice system uses the “War on Drugs” as a primary tool for enforcing traditional, as well as new, modes of discrimination and repression.

    Governmental Assassinations, the murderous policies of the FBI & other agencies

    in Politics

    Guess who's back!? It's been a few months since I've done a show and now I'm back with a vengance! Join me, Dr. Will Hawkins Jr. as I interview John Potash, Author of the book and documentary "The FBI war on Tupac and Black Leaders, and his new book "Drugs as Weapons Against Us"  as we discuss the FBI link to the murder of 2pac, Biggie and other Artist and Freedom Fighters. In the black community, there are many who believe, as we are faced with our screaming intuitions, that 2pac, Biggie and other artist we're murdered by the FBI and other government agencies. What if it were TRUE?!?!  Is this a farfetched notion? Consider this, Dr. Martin Luther King's family actually won a law suit against the Federal Government for its orchestrating the murder of Dr. King....  Programs like Cointelpro, and MK-ILTRA, the government tells us, were abandoned decades ago. But were they really? Especially since there seems to be more than a mere residual affect of those programs visible today.....  Join us as we have a candid discussion and shed new light on these matters.

    Brigadier General Audino talks about his time in Kurdistan and his views on the future of Kurds and US policies toward the Kurdish government.  Brigadier General Ernie Audino received his master’s degree in National Security and Strategic Studies at the National War College and studied Kurdish history in depth under Ambassador Peter Galbraith.


    With the demise of the Baathist Regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq and withdrawal of US forces, Iran is the most powerful force in the Gulf and is conducting airstrikes inside Iraq. Tehran and Washington fight ISIS. We must check Iranian strength, not accommodate it as the Obama administration is doing. General Audino believes an independent Kurdistan is the best buffer against the spread of radical Islam in the region.

    You're Fired! Best Practices for Terminations in Small Business

    in Business

    You're Fired!


    When was the first time you had to fire an employee/contractor? How did the termination go? As small business owners we often forget that there has to be a strategy in place to terminate employees who are underperforming, or who's positions may need to be eliminated. But how do you manage the process without causing any backlash while preserving dignity...and keeping your company compliant?


    Sometimes when you fire people, it can go really wrong. But if you have a policy in place and an exit interview system in place, you can make an already uncomfortable experience easier to deal with for both parties. Tune in as I talk about best practices in terminations, how to create an effective termination policy, and how to keep things moving smoothly after terminations.
