Master he is of the piano and guitar, but also in his unique versatility to adapt to playing various musical styles in a plethora of performances. WAMI Winner is he, but in meeting Kris, you see a sense of satisfaction in his ability to play to a platitude of people. His list of performances is immense, but his heart is even larger as is his efforts to assist others from a charitable standpoint. Join us tonight for an intrespective look in the life and large accomplishments of Kris Crow.
Notions of race are created to justify slavery because once you point out differences in people, it is easier to start judging and ranking them; positioning some races as more superior than others. One way this has been demonstrated in America is during the time of Jim Crow Laws. By this time slavery had been abolished but this was a new type of slavery. These laws limited certain freedoms and separated and ranked citizens solely based on race. Some of these limited freedoms included separate eating areas, separate drinking fountains, and separate bathrooms. Jim Crow laws were eventually abolished but this slavery idea still exists today but more through socially constructed laws versus U.S. laws. Examples of this include the war on drugs and the multiple cases of cops treating people unfairly based on the color of their skin.
Several racial bribes representative of Jim Crow Laws that exist in America today include the mass imprisonment of more people of color than white people, the war on drugs, and discrimination. As Alexander points out in her book, The New Jim Crow, mass imprisonment started back during the Civil Rights Movement when people of color would do legal acts, such as protesting, they would be viewed and handled as criminal acts. The rise in crime rates was also linked not to any other social and economic factor but only to the African American unemployment rates and the Civil Rights Movement. This type of thinking was lead by the conservatives to secretly find ways to maintain white supremacy in America. This crime was also what sparked the war on drugs, which increased the surveillance and severity of punishment for possession or the selling of drugs. Drugs and crime in areas of poverty where there was a great African American population and by cracking down on drugs they could arrest and charge more people of color. Lastly, discrimination is still seen today in jobs, income, living situations, care, and education.

#MyRealTalkRadio Interviews Singer/Songwriter: Jessica Reedy
Jessica Reedy first came to our attention on the national TV competition BET’s Sunday Best. She attended the Season 2 Sunday Best audition in Washington DC on a whim to support a friend. She quickly found herself in the Top 20 onto the show’s main stage performing for judges Mary Mary and Bebe Winans. Reedy made it all the way to finals eventually being named runner up. Throughout that process and the subsequent loss, self-doubt crept in. While Reedy never thought she had the talent to make it, God used the totality of the experience to bring her into her call as both an artist and minister of music.

Millions, especially black, Hispanic and Asian-American voters, are at risk. At the heart of this voter-roll scrub is the Interstate Crosscheck program, which has generated a master list of nearly 7 million names.Crosscheck list of suspected double voters has been compiled by matching names from roughly 110 million voter records from participating states.The three states’ lists are heavily weighted with names such as Jackson, Garcia, Patel and Kim — ones common among minorities, who vote overwhelmingly Democratic. Indeed, fully 1 in 7 African-Americans in those 27 states.“It’s Jim Crow all over again,” says the Rev.
