Census figures indicate growing numbers of Latino citizens, based on new births and new immigrants. On issues such as immigration reform, multilingual education and minority set aside programs for contractors, African Americans and Latinos often find themselves pitted against each other as rivals for jobs, contracts and economic resources. Among men, both groups are often the recipients of racial profiling and media stereotyping as criminals. There are white gangs as well as African American and Latino gangs, yet when issues of gang violence are addressed white males are not the targets of police crackdowns, black and Latino males are. Chicago Mayoral candidates Jesus "Chuy" Garcia and William "Dock" Walls address the relationship between African Americans and Latinos and how it will affect this year's election.
I don’t understand why instead of seeing the bigger picture, in society we learn to see our brothers and sisters as strangers and even as enemies. Things don’t have to be this way, but the burdens of breaking hundreds of years of separative mentality can be quite difficult. In this episode I explore this pressing issue.

Government workers, elected, appointed or hired are to provide services to we the people. We the people of the United States of America in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common Defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. Elected officials are Government workers who come from amongst us.Their purpose seem to be only to get paychecks. They talk and act on the goods of Business owners while treading on the welfare and liberty of we the people. Over $3trillions in tax revenue for 2014 is more than enough for congress and senate to pass jobs to get America to a full workforce. America's 50million businesses, 10% of which are foreign owned, should hire 50 million people in 30days. Working class, be wise. Consider the ant! Unite. Speak as one. Jobless numbers 5.5% smacks of racism. Blacks-10.5%. Latinos 6.6%. Whites 4.7%. Asians 4.0%.

this is a radio program with a most unique message of hebrew isralites. it concerns the soon restoration of our nation.this program is prophetic in nature and its purpose is "to call people to the marriage feast of the lamb not long from now.the most high has been revealing the nearness of the taking away and the second coming of his son from heaven. also this show seeks to proclaim the nearness of the "day of the lord" great tribulation,jacobs trouble etc etc.this program by far and others like it that deal with the hidden manna and the separation going on right now in israel are by far the absolute most important radio programs on the face of the earth today. it is my hope that you tune in if you are a hebrew israelite are even if you dont think you are. the spirit and the bride say come (rev 22 16)
Some positive immigration issue news from UT Austin and some semi-good news from Washington on the same topic. The rest of the show is about the Culture of Death and their manifestations in the political world. UT systems Chancellor, McCraven publicly opposed efforts to end state level tuition for undocumented youth in Texas. In Washington, a Senator from Maine offered a compromise bill to leave in place Obama executive orders from 2012 but still overturn actions from 2014. Republicans are trying to unfund the Dept. of Homeland Security which is the exact opposite of the "rule of law." I read several articles that discuss the importance of religion and the news derived from that. Pope Francis who will visit the US in Sept wrote to a Father in Arizona who leads young people who run a soup kitchen in Nogales, Sonora, for the benefit of migrants. The Holy Father supports them and encourages them. There is some rumor the Pope will visit the Mexico border to examine the plight of migrants. In other news, Pope Francis, while in America will speak at the UN and will also be the first Pope to address a joint session of Congress. Archbishop Charles Chaput recently spoke at Brigham Young University and stated that it was our duty as religious persons to speak up about it. I comment that is one reason I produce this show. I read an article about the President's remarks at the recent prayer breakfast and frankly I am STUNNED at his remarks! He, in effect, said, that because some much tragedy has been done in the name of Christ that we Christians should not be so quick to judge those attacking Christians. During today's show, I also comment that I am concerned that soon the Libertarian point of view on many social issues will soon come out and the Culture of Life agenda will suffer for it because Libertarians who support efforts against abortion will not defend efforts against euthanasia, drug use, homosexual marriage and so on.
