    #BLACKLIVESMATTER is and has been adopted as an rallying cry for some time now, especially when situations have occurred that have made an impact on black lives, society, and culture as a whole, especially when it's been afflicted upon by non-blacks. Situations that've been in the mainstream for quite some time now has actually warranted said rallying cry, but I'm talking about taking it back to EVERYHOOD U.S.A. Does #BLACKLIVESMATTER hold the same fervor and ferocity, when we as blacks, committ these same atrocities on OURSELVES??? YES, I'm totally for JUSTICE being sought for and gained for the Trayvon Martins, Michael Browns, Eric Garners, Tamir Rices, Eric Harris', Walter Scotts, Freddie Grays, Charleston Nine, Sandra Bland, and now Samuel DuBose. But. I still want the same JUSTICE for when Ray Ray kills Pookie in the hood. The bottom line is that we don't make #BLACKLIVESMATTER a MOMENT, but an actual MOVEMENT!!!! 

  • Police Brutality and Racial Profiling

    in Current Events

    The stories are becoming all too familiar - Oscar Grant, John Crawford III, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, and many others whose names don't make national headlines.  #BlackLivesMatter has become the cry of the African-American community as the lives of young Black men and women are taken at the hands of police while unarmed.  Why are people of color stopped, searched, arrested, and killed in disproportionate numbers compared to their Caucasian counterparts?  How can unarmed "suspects" such as John Crawford III or Oscar Grant get shot on site when people who commit heinous acts - such as James Eagan Holmes who killed 12 and injured 70 in a crowded movie theatre - are arrested and given every benefit of the doubt?  Let's discuss it and find some real solutions beyond the hashtags.  Because of the nature of this subject matter, parental discresion is advised for children under 13.

    Sly and the Family Stone was an American band from San Francisco. Active from 1967 to 1983, the band was pivotal in the development of soul, funk, and psychedelic music. Headed by singer, songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist Sly Stone, and containing several of his family members and friends, the band was the first major American rock band to have an "integrated, multi-gender" lineup.

    Brothers Sly Stone and singer/guitarist Freddie Stone combined their bands (Sly & the Stoners and Freddie & the Stone Souls) in 1967. Sly and Freddie Stone, trumpeter Cynthia Robinson, drummer Gregg Errico, saxophonist  Jerry Martini, and bassist Larry Graham comprised the original lineup; Sly and Freddie's sister, singer/keyboardist Rose Stone, joined within a year. They recorded five Billboard Hot 100 hits which reached the top 10, and four ground-breaking albums, which greatly influenced the sound of American pop, soul, R&B, funk, and hip hop music. In the preface of his 1998 book For the Record: Sly and the Family Stone: An Oral History, Joel Selvin sums up the importance of Sly and the Family Stone's influence on African American music by stating "there are two typesof black music: black music before Sly Stone, and black music after Sly Stone".

    Tune in tonight at 7pm to discuss Cami Anderson leaving and Chris Cerf taking her place—at what price? Was it about Cami or her ideology?

    In The Streets with Beverley Smith: The Charleston Nine (Episode 33)

    in Spirituality

    We stand appalled at the horrifying massacre of the nine churchgoers in Charleston. Join me as I read their names and tell the story of their brutal slaying. In the wake of the killing, the nation's media, politicians, and pundits are choking on admitting the racist motivation for the slaughter, even with the killer's own confession in the form of his manifesto. The POTUS tackles gun control and the N-word in his latest address. The autopsy report for Freddie Gray has been released. The six police officers have entered their pleas in court. No ruling yet from the Supreme Court on the subject of same-sex marriage. And more.

    Navy Seal transgender for Congress - Hack Attack! 18+ million

    in Politics

    Hr1  Democrat Navy Seal running for Congress against Steny Hoyer. The catch, she used to be a guy, which in today's gender climate, you'd think would work in her favor. But she has zero support from LGBT groups.

    AND... author Michael Hausam talks about Baltimore & Freddie Gray autopsy. Police didn't follow proper procedure, resulting in his death. That's WAY different than "police have it out for black kids." Now how are they going to make 2nd degree murder charges stick?

    Illegal alien waves Mexican flag crossing stage at graduation. Disrespectful or proud of heritage?

    Virginia makes it impossible for parents to opt their children out of gender fluidity indoctrination.

    Hr2  911 spoof... which would be funny, it didn't his so close to home.

    Auditors say The Clinton Foundation hasn't done the filings and reporting they need to do. Surprised? I didn't think so. Clintons should write a new book, "Money Laundering for Dummies." Clinton Foundation not even a legal charity!

    Stephen Martin Kohn talks about the importance of whistleblowers, including Edward Snowden! Do whistleblowers end up on unemployment for the rest of their lives? Some do. Retaliation is commonplace.

    Hr3  At least 18 million U.S. government personnel files HACKED!

    What kind of workforce are we producing w/ college classes like "Wasting Time On the Internet" where students watch ?

    Covering crazy stories you likely won't hear anywhere else

    Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
