SORT BY Relevancy
As our inaugural show, we will talk about how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream is still yet unrealized, and perhaps after the election of Barack Obama, the dream has experienced a set back.
We open the episode talking about the history of Juneteenth, and then Mickey Rowe relates the experiences of his mother's childhood in Muncie, Indiana, where the last lynching in the Northern States took place in nearby Marion. We then discuss how, even in Mickey's lifetime, there were constant reminders that Blacks could not participate fully in society, even in the North.
Lester then shares the start differences that he experienced as an accountant that worked with businessmen who just took their "white privilege" for granted. This is related to Rep. Steve Black, who stated that President Obama has a "default position" to favor Blacks.
JuneTeenth is a celebration of freedom. An American celebration of freedom. A new beginning. It was JuneTeenth 1865, 2 1/2 years after slavery was no longer legal in America, that General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, TX to free the last American slaves. Texas seceded because of the intent to keep slaves. After all, slaves were property. Texans wasn't letting even the federal government take away their property. It took an army to free the last slaves. Freedom still had and still has prices to be paid. Bills were passed to help the freed slaves. But White men protested helping the now freed "Negroes". White men said helping freed slaves would only cause the Negroes to not want to sustain themselves. Ignorance of what. Today, the same statements are made. We work for little money. The results is working poor qualify for food stamps and other support services. Then GOP says poor people are not contributing to this country. Similar statements were made today by congress rep. Newt said poor children does not know anything about working for money. Newt said no one works in poor communities. These are words from the days of freedom for slaves. Slaves worked and built farms, companies, railroads, roads and byways. Slaves cooked, cleaned, raised animals, raised masters children, cared for livestock, created tools, with work skills the learned in Africa. Knowledge proved powerful. For the works of the slaves helped slaves to purchase their families and buy their own freedom. After all, . the greed of the White Wealthy Men reigned over all else. As is today for too many. JuneTeenth we celebrate a coming of age for America. Not just freedom of slaves. For a chain cannot be any stronger than its weakest link America. Together we stand. Divided we fall.

Friday marks the 150th anniversary of the landing of Union soldiers at Galveston, Texas, with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. The annual celebration Juneteenth was launched to celebrate the end of slavery and the Civil War in the United States.
This June 19 the nation and blacks may be confronting a new type of end of slavery, thanks to former Spokane, Wash., NAACP president, Rachel Dolezal.
Dolezal’s decision to change her race from white to black may actually bring an official end to racial hyphenation and ethnic designation in America. And that is something to celebrate
