The Jackson Clarion-Ledger, for example, ran a front page headline after the march that read, "Washington is Clean again with Negro Trash Removed."Newspapers,radio stations and TV stations in the south did not in general cover the March on Washington in 1963.The southern based Washington Post did not say a word about Dr King's address in the 29 August 1963 edition.Today the Post is owned by a cut-rate online bookseller.
We will analyze the NFL eastern divisions of the AFC and NFC along with discussing Phil Simms and his apparent commitment to not referring to Washington by their allegedly racist team name during his broadcasts on CBS & the NFL Network. Is he a hero for social justice or a fomer Giants' QB picking on an old rival? We'll also react to Cleveland Browns head coach, Mike Pettine, selecting Brian Hoyer over Johnny Manziel to start week 1, Major League Baseball storylines and much, much more.
October 16, 2014 marks the 19th Anniversary of the "Million Man March." This call to action was lead by the honorable "Minister Louis Farrakahn" of the Nation of Islam supported by other groups and organizations such as the National Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the Reverend Jesse Jackson, and the National African American Leadership Summit just to name a few.
October 16, 1995 was a defining moment for black men all across this country in an effort to deal with the plagues of social injustice in this country. This call to action was to show a united front, and to charge black men to go back home and be responsible for their families and communities.
Join us tonight as we take a look back at this historical occasion. What have we learned from it? Have we prospered since then, if not, "why?" Where do we go from here?

The following is a statement on the incident from Washington Post Executive Editor Martin D. Baron:Wesley has briefed us on what occurred, and there was absolutely no justification for his
arrest.He was illegally instructed to stop taking video of officers. Then he followed officers’ instructions to leave a McDonald’s — and after contradictory instructions on how to exit, he was slammed against a soda machine and then handcuffed. That behavior was wholly unwarranted and an assault on the freedom of the press to cover the news. The physical risk to Wesley himself is obvious and outrageous.

On this episode Jim shares the details of his recent visit to Washington DC (as a tourist) and his perspective on how he was treated. Jim shares his view that simply driving around the DC metro area any reasonable person would agree that this monstrosity is not what the founders had in mind. He also shares the bizarre experience he had getting permission to get into the House and Senate chambers. In this hour Jim also comments on the Tony Stewart/ Kevin Ward racing incident, and the news story that Bitcoin may be a CIA project.
LIVE! from Ferguson with Bro. Richard Muhammad, The Final Call: National March on Ferguson drew 10,000 marchers on the third Saturday after the shooting of Mike Brown. A major theme was "justice" according to Muhammad. Brown was an 18-year old black male who was unarmed.

Today on "It's My House" we shall complete this weeks sessons on PAC (Political Action Committee) formation.
A vital part of that will be taking a look at "The Million Man March" which took place on October 16, 1995. That was (19) years ago.
Since then we have elected President Obama, we have First Lady Obama, and we have Attorney General Eric Holder. Very good progress on those fronts.
However we lost Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown (both who had not been born yet in 1995). In addition, Detroit, Michigan has gone bankrupt, Toledo, Ohio has a water problem, and many people who lost their homes.
There was Two Billion Dollars of potential PAC money on the Washington Mall in 1995, but were there any PAC's or "Think Tanks" formed ? We shall also take a look at what "White Supremacy" REALLY (looks like); then we must discuss what shall we do today ?
