SORT BY Relevancy
Something I have struggled to understand as of late is so many Christian rappers and other Post Mill Christians have said there is no divide between secular and sacred, its just art (music, movies etc.). So on this episode of G220 Radio I will be joined by Jovan Mackenzy, a Christian Rap Artist, ( http://jovanmackenzy.com/ ). Please check out the link to Jovan Mackezy's page where you can listen to and get his music.
I want to discuss this issue because as I said it is something I struggle to understand and believe others may as well and when you have people saying there is no divide between the secular and sacred it is definetly important to discuss.
Also what about collaberating in music with non Christian artists, should a Christian rapper collaberate? I understand every believer has their own conviction and some Christians may differ on their views but it is still something to talk about and consider.
Another thing to discuss is when it comes to Christian rap music does every song have to talk about Jesus to be Christian?
All this and more on this episode of G220 Radio

Why is it that the term "Natural Hair" alone brings so much emotion to the forefront of a community?
Why should we even have the term "Natural Hair" which in actuality reveals that most sport as unnatural hair.
But if one were to mention this to an individual who dyes their locks, straightens them, heats them up and then douses them with all types of substances as though their hair was in a burn unit, you might get a few unkind words thrown your way.
So most of us understand this common argument that brews under the surface of the Black hair industry.
But in many recent findings we have discovered that even within the natural hair movement their is a separation somewhat of what many feel are the ideals that personify and represent it.
Well let me get straight to the point.
There is a great divide within the natural hair movement that is beyond disgusting and baffles the mind over and above any measure.
The problem that seems to be ever growing and brewing as we speak is that many women in the Natural Hair Movement seem to want to through shade at anyone who is also in the movement who has hair that is curly and not kinky.
Is this immature or what?
Here we expect to see a special breed of enlightened woman, who has embraced her natural beauty and has broken the shackles that society has placed on many to turn around and feel so negatively toward another who is supposed to be on the same team!
.......and JUST when I thought many of our Sisters were making progress this type of backward thinking rears its ugly head.
Is this the reason that it seems that only Black women call their trip to the hair salon "The Beauty Salon?" Why is it that I don't hear other races refer to it in this manner? Does this indicate that many Black women do not feel as tough their natural state is anything BUT beautiful?
Gigabit broadband is going to expand the digital divide in some areas, at least in the short term, because gigs go where the money is. Wireless enjoys some advantages in costs and quick deployment that make it a valuable digital inclusion tool for underserved communities today and a backup solution for tomorrow.
Tony Schloss, Director of Community Initiatives for the Red Hook Initiative in Brooklyn, NY, is using a wireless mesh network as a job creator and a tool for economic development. Nearly half of economic development pros in a recent survey believe broadband networks can be used to encourage individual entrepreneurship among underserved constituents. Schloss tells listeners how they can achieve these objectives in their communities.
Listeners get an overview of how to raise money and deploy wireless technology, mobilize people to organize and participate in digital programs, help develop basic applications, create community-centric content and keep operations going. Schloss also discusses some of Red Hook's successes working with youths and what steps communities can take to replicate these.
On the premier of Beyond the Veil, we will be discussing current events, as well as focusing on The Partisan Divide. Are you a Republican? Are you a Democrat? DOES IT MATTER? How much of our time is spent fighting over our political differences? How much of our time is spent focusing on ideology? How many of the policies presented by our SELECTED representatives reflect any differences what so ever?
Join us as we break down the barriers and expose the truth behind the brutal world of politics. Is this truly a two party system? Or have they melded into one?
One of the best ways to break down a unit of people is to make them believe they're different amongnst themselves to divide their unit. A very well know strategy in history that to this day still seperates Our People. FTNR's host's AsaFoBMP & Ace share their perspective on it.
Join hostess Brenda Golden and guest Majick Ravenhawk as they discuss what "Divide and Conquer" means and does in Indian Country. From the very beginning of colonizers invading this land, their strategy to divide and conquer the indigenous populations was effective. That strategy is a learned behavior that Indian Country has adopted subconsciously partially because of historical trauma and lateral violence. .
Historical trauma has a significant impact on the physical, emotional and spiritual well being of Native Americans. At the core of Native American psychology, historical trauma manifests itself in the social and personal issues prevalent in our communities including substance abuse, mental health problems, domestic violence, child abuse, depression, anger, and loneliness.
Our people have been oppressed for a very long time and, now some of our own people have become the oppressors. This is called lateral violence. The most common behaviors associated with lateral violence that prevent positive change from occurring include gossiping, bullying, finger pointing, backstabbing and shunning. These behaviors are becoming increasingly common on Facebook and Twitter. However, we do not want our own people and our supporters taking to these kinds of tactics to advance themselves within any movement. If someone (or someone’s) making you feel like you are being undermined or even feelings of sabotage of success or growth, then you may be a victim of lateral violence. The root cause of this is actually colonization. It is not our way to behave like that to one another. We do not make people feel isolated, alone and rejected.
ENVISION THIS: “Only when a critical mass of individuals begin to change does the opportunity arise for systemic, institutional reform.”
We are honored to have Sharon Morgan and Tom DeWolf, co-authors of GATHER AT THE TABLE: THE HEALING JOURNEY OF A DAUGHTER OF SLAVERY AND A SON OF THE SLAVE TRADE with us to share their diverse yet complementary experience with the deep divide of race that continues to plague our nation and confound our empathy. This is the true story of a militant black woman from Chicago’s Southside and a Kumbaya white man from rural Oregon who committed to confront America’s “race problem” together. The book and tonight's episode make us privy to their struggle with some very hard issues.
Both Sharon and Tom share their paranoia when each is the only black/white person around, surrounded only by white/black people. How do you talk about something so difficult after centuries of pain and mistrust? Yet they persist.
Is it possible to shift the national paradigm with one changed relationship? Their dedication to GATHER AT THE TABLE explains the incredible courage and tenacity with which they pursue this vision: “For our ancestors who guide us; For our children who inspire us; For our grandchildren who keep our hopes alive.” May we all share this dedication.

If you are a fan of turn-based strategy games or even strategic RPGs, then this week's episode is a must-listen. I have a chat with Mat Staltman of Bootsnake Games to discuss his team's latest game (currently seeking crowdfunding on Kickstarter) Deadrock Divide. Inspired by 80's Saturday morning cartoons, Deadrock Divide tasks players with exploring the galaxy in an effort to earn riches from aligning themselves with factions and corporations that are vying to get wealthy from one of the most sought-after resources in the galaxy: deadrock. Inspired by turn-based strategy classics such as Civilization, Deadrock Divide is part strategy game, part RPG, but is looking 100% awesome.

In 2008, with the election of the first African American to the presidency, many hoped that the America’s racial divide would finally lessen. Now, five years into this Presidency, the racial divide has not only widened but the nature of racism has become overt and further polarized the political landscape. According to Democrats, racism is responsible for the inept, useless, non-productive Congress. On the other hand, Republicans insist that white people are victims of discrimination.
