On tonight's edition of Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates, we'll discuss a recent article in the new Jacobin magazine, titled, " Struggles and Progress." How can an analysis of the Civil War help workers in 2015.
In another week in the capitalist United States, two television journalists were gunned down on live television. The man who filmed the attack and is believed to be responsible, Vester Flanagan, was a gay black man in America who couldn't find a job. Although clearly a disturbed individual, we'll discuss how our extremely stratified society under capitalism contributes to Vester's rage. The corporate media will mainly analyze the individual and omit and analysis of the underlying social conditions caused by capitalism.
This, plus your calls on Carson's Corner.
The NAACP has been without direction or purpose for a number of years, but now with its handling of the Rachel Dolezal debacle the NAACP is officially dead. When its leadership is more inclined to embrace a liar and a deciever because it fits an agenda it has shown that whatever shred of integrity the NAACP had is now gone.
Aprayer for the residents of Charlotte and the United Sates through this horriffic shooting.

The 20th anniversary of the Million Man March is being promoted with the words "Justice or Else!" What's the or else? In recent speech, Minister Louis Farrakhan called for African Americans to boycott Christmas as a response to racial injustice. How can we force justice by the withdrawal of our 1.9 trillion dollars from the U.S. economy during the season most businesses depend upon for their yearly profits? Who are we hoping to hurt with our boycott? How will their financial distress lead to a change of discriminatory laws? The procecution of police who killed citizens? The passing of sensible gun laws? The release of falsely accused prisoners? Do we need to work out a specific strategy to make sure our lack of buying gifts for friends and family produces the desired effects? Will enough people participate? Do we need to tie this boycott to a specific piece of legislation? Give us your views on the meaning of "justice or else!" What threat can we collectively carry out that can force a change and bring justice
Hammer goes after the NAACP-Has this country the good ole USA lost its damn mind. This politcal correctness is tearing this country a part. We become weak if someone is doing ,saying,wearing something that is a offensive to someone and we want it gone or stopped.Wake up America take this country back because we became blind sheep and our freedome is being slaughtered. Case in point.
An Ohio police chief isn’t really addressing controversy that has unfolded since he was seen in photos wearing a Confederate Flag vest while vacationing in South Dakota, WKYC reports.
Port Clinton police Chief Robert Hickman said that he doesn’t “look at the Confederate flag as a racist symbol,” with some residents defending him, saying he doesn’t have a “racist bone” in his body.
However, some aren’t very impressed. Sandusky NAACP president Jim Jackson told the Sandusky Register that the attire was inappropriate in light of the controversy surrounding the flag, particularly since the Charleston, S.C. shooting.
"There are likely very few Americans who don't understand that symbol," Jackson told the news site. "You can't be ignorant because every individual in America understands what that flag means."
Johnson spearheaded and ignited the asking for Rachel Dolezal's resignation.Johnson set up an online petition through the website MoveOn.Org and has received more than 200 signatures as of Sunday night."We don't care what race she is, but when you are leader, it doesn't even matter if you've made a mistake but the fact that you will not respond to the people, that you won't issue an apology,” Johnson said. “Come clean.”So you mean to tell me that your going to lie within a lie and say you don't understand the question,” Johnson said. “And you don't know if you're African American or not because she had been proudly professing that."Johnson said that's also why she is concerned with the position taken by the national NAACP. Last week, the organization released a statement that said in part: “The NAACP Alaska-Oregon-Washington State Conference stands behind Ms. Dolezal's advocacy record.”Johnson said that record has been based on lies.“I've asked people to boycott the NAACP, do not go to meetings, do not pay membership until they reconsider the decision to back a person they consider a leader, because we don't,” Johnson said..
In recognition of Father's Day, which will be on Sunday, June 21, we on Critical Discourse, will discuss that male aspect of the family dynamic, the father.
While we often pay tribute to our mothers (and we should), oftentimes, we neglect the father, sometimes even treating him as a joke.
So, we want to discuss fatherhood in general, the responsibilities, challenges and triumphs, from our own and observational points of view. Feel free t0 share your insights and stories with us.
In the meantime, as much as I was trying to ignore the NAACP / Rachael Dolezal fiasco, it was the comments of some of her defenders (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Melissa Harris-Perry, Michael Eric Dyson, etc.) that fired me up to speak on this. And to be certain, all I say on Saturday, will be it, as for the most part, this obsession with this compulsive liar, serves nothing more than a distraction from important issues.
So desperate we've become as a people under liberal influence, to defend anything endorsed by MS-NBC and other liberal bastions, that we'd even defend a "black" woman, who history shows, was more than willing to take issue with a perceived advantage of being black.
Then, I understand that the majority of black America would support this liar over Justice Thomas (Oh, I get it; her "work" makes her "blacker" than he).
But, we will not lose focus on the primary topic, fathers / fatherhood..
On this episode of Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates, we discuss the most important issues facing the working class. We'll discuss the U.S. flights over China. Why is the U.S. deliberately trying to provoke China; some have suggested insane brinkmanship on the part of the U.S. Is this part of a larger strategy?
It's been documented that one African American is killed by the police every 28 hours. Unfortunately, virtually no police officers are held accountable. The latest example of this is the acquittal of a white Cleveland police officer who shot and killed an African American couple. Do black lives matter in the capitalist cystem?
Michael Parenti of the Greanville Post wrote an article in defense of existing socialism and socialism of the past. We'll discuss the importance of the article and the implications for the future. http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.greanvillepost.com%2F2015%2F05%2F23%2Fleft-anticommunism-the-unkindest-cut%2F&h=0AQFIdGMH
Also, it was revealed last week through a FOIA lawsuit that the U.S., Saudi Arabi and other allies supported the creation of the Islamic State. Was this a deliberate act to create further military action in Syria and elsewhere?
The race of one of the most prominent faces in Spokane, Washington, Rachel Dolezal, has come under heavy community and media fire. Rachel Dolezal, who has identified herself as African American, is under question after her estranged mother claimed she is white, and born to two Caucasian parents.
The questions to be addressed on this episode of Hot Topics Talk Radio:
Does it matter that the head of the NAACP Spokane Chapter is white?
Why wasn’t Dolezal honest about her heritage/race?
Should she be removed from her post as president of the Spokane Chapter?
Is it more acceptable for whites to pass as blacks, than blacks passing as white?
… and more.
Join the HTTR team as they delve into this very controversial story of NAACP’s Spokane Chapter President, Rachel Dolezal.

(CNN)Rachel Dolezal -- fresh off of stepping down as head of the Spokane NAACP chapter over criticism that she's portrayed herself as black, even though she was born white -- stood by that self-assessment Tuesday, insisting, "I identify as black."
Dolezal did not deny her biological parents are white or that she has changed how she looks at herself over the years in an interview on NBC's "Today" show. And she admitted not having corrected various published reports over the years labeling her as transracial, biracial and black.
At the same time, Dolezal -- while admitting she might have conducted some interviews differently -- insisted she'd do the same thing again overall when it comes to how she has portrayed herself racially.
CNN's Ed Payne, Dana Ford, Alyssa Jackson, Ray Sanchez, Ashley Fantz, Stephanie Elam, Paul Vercammen, Gary Tuchman, Tony Marco and Ralph Ellis contributed to this report.
