    I was just thinking...Why are we being kicked out of our neighborhoods?

    in Politics

    I grew up in a black community. In the morning my father along with 99% of the black men in our neighborhood, rose early in the morning for work in the San Franicsco bay area. Most black families owned their homes due to the G.I Bill and other programs for veterans.


    Today, we are being forced out of our home by taxes, joblessness and not being abel to maintain and upgrade our home and we have been forced to join the ranks of poverty renters. Is this part of the plan to divide and conquer and dilute black voices?


    PBS News wrote:


    No one is more vulnerable to the effects of gentrification than renters. When prices go up, tenants are pushed out, whether through natural turnover, rent hikes, or evictions. When buildings are sold, buyers often evict the existing tenants to move in themselves, combine several units, or bring in new tenants at a higher rate. When residents own their homes, they are less vulnerable, and may opt to "cash them in" and move elsewhere. Their options may be limited if there is a regional housing shortage, however, and cash does not always compensate for less tangible losses.


    Let's talk about the urban removal or Gentirification or as it is know today black removal from ur citeis and urban centers.

    Neighborhoods: Time to Fix 'em Up

    in Politics

    It's time we fix our neighborhoods America. Many of my shows this year has been about neighborhoods. These shows have not been listeners favorites.  I continued to air shows about neighborhoods until there was no listeners, either live or in archive files. It was then and still remains on my heart to make neighborhoods an issue across America. The fears of  Americans comes from not feeling secure in our own neighborhoods.
    The news this week about 3 women in Cleveland, Ohio angered me. Three women abducted, and kept within blocks of their families for a decade. This should not happen America. Healthy neighborhoods will prevent such activity. Healthy neighborhoods like a healthy body don't just happen.  We have to talk neighborhoods America. We can protect one another. Not with weaponry, but with love for self and love for one another.

    The Gettin It In Show: Whats the difference between a Blackman and a Ni**a

    in Radio

    Contrary to what many may think, there is a difference
    between Black people and niggas. Define the Black Man? Define a Nigga? Was one once the other if so how and why? Please review the list below I gathered from a website called Assata Shakur Forums. What are your thoughts? Does it appear to be true? Why are we battling with ourselves as a people? As awakened individuals should we turn our backs on our bruthas and sistas that claim to be niggas?

    Black people spend thousands of dollars on higher education and see the value of owning real estate.
    Niggas spend thousands of dollars on ''getting high" and are concerned only with keeping' it real.

    When Black people have children, they try to get better paying jobs to make
    sure they can support their child... 
    When niggas have children; they change jobs to avoid paying child support.


    When Black people have children, they invest in college plans, piano lessons and braces...
    When niggas have children they invest in designer clothes, platinum jewelry and mini-Air Jordans

    Black people watch out for their neighbors and understand the importance of strong neighborhoods...
    Niggas watch their neighbors, and look for an opportunity to take advantage of their weaknesses.

    Black people appreciate the sacrifices made for them by, their families to help them get ahead in life...
    Niggas will sacrifice their Families and steal from them in order to get their next high. 

    Black people appreciate expensive jewelry designer clothes and nice cars but realize that they don't make the person.... 
    Niggas define themselves by their designer clothes platinum jewelry and nice cars.

    Donald Sterling, Chocolate City, & Gentrification Factors

    in Real Estate

    On our podcast "It's My House" we shall discuss "Gentrificaiton Factors". 


    Recently billionaire Donald Sterling was quoted (according to the online publication Financial Juneteeth) by saying: "Jews help their own, but successful  African Americans do not".


    When it comes to many African American neighborhoods that become gentrified (the Black Not Helping Blacks Syndrome)  appears to be a major factor.


    We shall take a look at the following case studies:



    Flag Wars
    16th Street Heights..........in Washington, D.C.
    Rosewood, Florida

    The King Me Show: The American Dream: Buying A Home While Black in America

    in Radio

    Home ownership has been an important vehicle in creating a solid white middle class, but it has not done the same for most black homeowners, because blacks and whites buy homes in very different neighborhoods. Research shows that homes in majority black neighborhoods do not appreciate as much as homes in overwhelmingly white neighborhoods. This appreciation gap begins whenever a neighborhood is more than 10% black, and it increases right along with the percentage of black homeowners. Yet most blacks decide to live in majority minority neighborhoods, while most whites live in overwhelmingly white neighborhoods.
