It is unlikely the town of Ferguson, Missouri will change in our lifetimes. The mainstream media has portrayed Ferguson, Missouri as a town of rioter’s and looter dismissing the fact the town of 21,203 (2010 census) is in a crisis. In a report from ArchCity Defenders — a legal group that “works to break the cycle of ‘revolving door justice’ in the St. Louis metropolitan area” — reveals that in 2013, “the Ferguson Municipal Court disposed 24,532 warrants and 12,018 cases, or about 3 warrants and 1.5 cases per household.” In Ferguson, the “majority (67%) of [the city's 21,203] residents are African-American” and “22% of residents live below the poverty level.” Despite Ferguson’s relative poverty, fines and court fees comprise the second largest source of revenue for the city, a total of $2,635,400 [...] According to a court employee, the docket for an average court session may include as many as 1,500 cases. Assuming an 80% conviction rate, the average fine in a case resulting in a guilty verdict would be $275.The local carnage happening over the last month and a half is a direct representation of what being poor, black and broke looks like in a town with no opportunities to rise beyond the mundane.

Lets talk about what happened to Mike Brown and what lead to his killing by a police officer (Darren Wilson). How to improve relationships between the cops and the community and how race plays a part in the way police interact with us. Do African American parents have to teach their young sons and daughters how to act when stopped by the police? Its a shame that it has come to that but now-a-days I think we should. So I will be holding my radio shows every friday at 11:30am. Thanks for joining the conversation. My very first show will air 8/29/2014. I am also trying to book a special guess for that day so stay tune and please listen, call in or txt your questions on show day.

"Racism is as American as apple pie" is the highly publicized quote from student activist Stokely Carmichael (later Kwame Toure) during the 1960s protest movement. As supporters of white police officer Darren Wilson collect money for his defense in the killing of unarmed black teen Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri, members of a white supremist hate group send out a message referring to Michael Brown as a "N-----r Thug" and praise the work of the Ferguson police department in killing him. For them, Darren Wilson is a hero. Racial hatred is as American as apple pie. But is it also a reflection of serious mental instability, an irrational fear that could prompt people to commit violent acts? Is it a condition to be isolated and treated, the way one treats those who suffer from schizoprenia or dementia, or any other mental illness that produces delusional thinking? Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. referred to the racist whites that threatened his life as "our sick white brethren." Those who are treated badly by sick racists often spend a lot of time trying to convince themselves that they are worthy of respect, rather than recognizing that the illness is within those who do not know how to respect others. A healthy mind has the capacity to recognize the good in others. A sick mind does not. Would you vote someone into office who suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and might become a serial killer? Then why allow those with the mental illness of racism to continue to get elected as mayors, appointed as police chiefs, or sit in courtrooms as judges? Should racism be identified and treated like a mental illness? If so, shouldn't the responsibility for removing mentally sick people from positions of authority rest on those who are mentally well?

Tonight- The news of a young, unarmed, black man shot to death by a white officer in Ferguson, Missouri, and the ensuing protests by the community and the reaction of various law enforcement agencies, has dominated national news, as of late. How does the situation in Ferguson relate to "The War On Drugs" and what kind of reform measures may be needed to avoid similar situations in the future?
Returning to PGT -Sheriff W.L. Federspiel the Sheriff of Saginaw County, recently in the national news concerning his department receiving and then returning a military tank. Similar gifting of military equipment is taking place across the country, (SEE FERGUSON-ET AL), but no other Sheriff’s are returning the equipment. In fact the Oakland County Sherrif’s department was gifted a grenade launcher.

Shalom everyone, this show is basically a addendum to my last show. The knowing your Cain and Abel offspring or seed could save your life and the life of your other kids. We all have heard stories of Fratricide, Sororcide, Matricide, Filicide aka honor killing and many others, but those that involve family members turning on one another in a violent way seem to be on the increase so all of we should want to know just what conditons are occurring within the family structure to bring about such deadly results. Is this the fault of a very pro violent society and culture? Is it genetics? Is it spritual demonc affliction? Or is it a combination of (all above) that's producing the cold hearted, desensitized killer pathologies in those we least expect. We must talk about this very serious issue and analyze it from a 9Mind Sacred Sisterhood perspective. So let us proceed to enter the realm of our unNine, MINDZ. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nc9d9zdjr_w
The execution style killing of Michael Brown, an unarmed 18 year old walking in the middle of the street in Ferguson, Missouri, has stirred the moral fibers of an American society reeked in ethnic tension, racial discrimination and police misconduct.
On today’s show we’ll examine what happened in Ferguson and explore what’s wrong in America when Black men outnumber all over ethnic groups in violence and wrongful death in this country.
Rights of Blacks became an issue when American born Africans became legalized citizens of America in 1865. From that moment forward, constant objection to Africans being citizens of America brought hatred of the race. With African citizenship the poorest of Americans lost their place in society. The wealthiest of Americans lost their human property. They south lost the war, thereby lost the right to human ownership. The poor of the south had no class of people to master over. This is where we are today. Although the American born African was free, their were little rights to go along with that freedom. Equality for the freed people was not on the to-do-list of whites in America. Equality only began to make its way into society because there was always men who refused to be slaves. They created chaos and they gave their lives rather than be ensalved ever again. It was because of the deaths and terror in the land that whites come to realize they could find ways to follow the law, while denying blacks their rights. The Black Code Laws were adopted soon aftr slavery and so we live today constantly trying to change and eliminate those Black Code laws. Because blacks chose equality, eventually whites would stand with blacks for equality for all races. Whites were ortrichized and given names aking to names given to black, merely because they chose peace by endorsing equality for the races. The tool required to gain equality was at the ballot box. And so beginning in the 1940's the movement began. By the time the 50's ended blacks demanded more and was tired of waiting. By the 1960's the year of the flower children The races joined forces and and there were marches, and sit its to protest. Lives were lost but people keep marching. Read the March 15, 1965 speech LBJ gave to congress that fits into 2014. Pick up a Voters Guide and pick your politicians carefully.
This week on my conversation w will discuss what I have said for weeks that I see coming true. With the beheading of the American journal and Obama smiling while playing golf only moments after giving a 2 second press confrence about it. When is the media going to look at people as humans not whites or blacks, reds, asians ext... Shows that Obama knows he can do what ever he wants and nothing will happen to him. Also we will also talk about the Red's start to the season. Are the new signings of player going to be what is needed or will they need a lot more. That and a whole lot more so join me and be apart of the conversation.
