• SiGnOtHeTiMeS w Queen Tahiyrah Tonight's Audiobook Michelle Alexander NewJimCrow

    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.

    Hosted By: Rudolph T. Muhammad and Joseph Bridgers Muhammad


    The “Disaster Awareness for Community Preparedness” Program is dedicated to discussing the previously mentioned and other pertinent topics regarding proper planning before disaster strikes. The objective of the presentation is to identify problems, offer mitigating solutions to hazards, and share specific information essential to minimizing loss of life and maximizing faster rescue or recovery in affected regions or communities. There will be subject matter experts as guests in our future shows that will assist our listening audience with the latest knowledge, skills and ability to prepare for risk reduction and hopefully ensure our family’s safety.


    There are at least two things certain about any natural or man-made disaster; it does not racially discriminate and it impacts all areas of people activity, i.e., economics, education, labor, law, politics, etc. Please join us and feel free to call-in at 323-927-2913. Let’s engage in thought provoking topics and courageous conversations of “Disaster Awareness for Community Preparedness”.

  • SALVATION! NO MORE ARGUMENTS! TILL WE ARE ONE WE NEED BE SHAPEN!!

    in Religion

    TO HASTEN ON EARTH HIS RIGHTEOUS REALM, BLESSED IS HE WHO JUDGES EVERY HEART BY HIS WORD!   BLESSED ARE THEY SHAPEN AS HIS WORKMANSHIP TO CONCERTEDLY FOLLOW HIM!  (Isaiah 66:1-<6-15, 16:1-6, ch.43)  (Ephesians 2-4)   TILL WE ARE ONE, WE ARE NOT SAVED!

    Isa 45:9  NIV "Woe on whoever quarrels against his MAKER, him who is but a potsherd among potsherds of dirt!  Woe on clay saying to the POTTER, 'What are you MAKING?; or the work saying to its SHAPER, "You are not handy!  10  Woe to him who says to his father, 'What did you beget?' or to his mother, 'With what did you labor?'  11 "This is what YAH says-- the HOLY ONE of ISRAEL is the MAKER: Concerning things to come, dare YOU question ME about MY children, or give ME orders about the work of MY hands?  12 It is I who MADE earth and CREATES man of it. MY own hands stretch out heaven. Its hosts, I command! 13 I will raise up Cyrus, MY KURTI in MY RIGHTEOUSNESS: I .. will make STRAIGHT all His ways. He will REBUILD MY JERUSALEM and set MY exiles free, but not for a price nor a bribe, says YAH Almighty."  (Isa.44:20-<24-45:6, 45:19-46:13)

  • Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 990

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Yanette (Lola Lola) Novoa, LCSW, from Miami, a child abuse survivor who studied psychology at Florida International University and is now writing a guide related to the issues of child abuse and trauma. Lola is the Founder and Director of Find The Way, LLC, and is publishing a new guide related to learning how to heal from child abuse and trauma. She says, "I know the pain, I know how it feels." Lola's childhood was taken away. She had been assaulted and raped from the age of 4 to the age of 12, ending in an illegal abortion at 12 in the presence of the perpetrator who forever changed her life. The new guide book, "Dare to Let Go and "Thrive": A Self Help Guide for Learning to Thrive After Experiencing Sexual Abuse", will be out next year. It invites the reader to learn the fundamental difference between "Thriving" versus surviving. Surviving is being able to function within a society. "Thriving" leads to living a meaningful life. Former victims of sexual assault can use the steps and strategies in this self help guide to point the way in becoming the thriving individual they are meant to be. Ms Novoa believes the key to all malice is "Prevention." In the long run, it is easier and cheaper to prevent than to treat. She specializes in working and assisting individuals of all ages that have suffered sexual abuse and are in need of finding their way to living a more meaningful life via different therapeutic techniques. Lola says, "I put together this guide mainly to .. give you some techniques to solve your own problems related to the long term effects of sexual abuse that you are carrying with you either consciously or unconsciously .. to be the thriving individual that you were meant to be.
