    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 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.

    White Girl Bleed A Lot - Colin Flaherty

    in Politics Conservative

    Racial tension and violence in the Black community is at an all time high.  People of all races are scared and also tired of not feeling safe in their own neighborhoods.  Recent acts of violence, riots, and murders have set us all on edge.


    Today I am honored to have as my guest Colin Flaherty.


    Colin Flaherty is an award winning reporter and author of the #1 best selling book White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore it.


    His new book is Knockout Game a Lie? Aww, Hell No.


    Both books are about black mob violence, black on white crime and the Knockout Game.


    His  work has appeared in more than 1000 news sites around the world, including the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Time Magazine.  His story about how a black man was unjustly convicted of trying to kill his white girlfriend resulted in his release from state prison and was featured on Court TV, NPR, The Los Angeles Times and San Diego Union-Tribune.


    Thomas Sowell: ”Reading Colin Flaherty’s book made painfully clear to me that the magnitude of this problem is greater than I had discovered from my own research. He documents both the race riots and the media and political evasions in dozens of cities.” – National Review.


    Sean Hannity: White Girl Bleed a Lot  “has gone viral.”


    Allen West: “At least author Colin Flaherty is tackling this issue (of racial violence and black on white crime) in his new book, White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore it.“


    Los Angeles Times: “a favorite of conservative voices.”

    O Ye Drybones : government sponsored segregation THE KERNER COMMISSION

    in Current Events

    In Baltimore in 1910, a black Yale law school graduate purchased a home in a previously all-white neighborhood,The Baltimore city government reacted by restricting African Americans to designated blocks. Explaining the policy, Baltimore’s mayor proclaimed, “Blacks should be quarantined in isolated slums in order to reduce the incidence of civil disturbance, to prevent the spread of communicable disease into the nearby White neighborhoods, and to protect property values among the White majority.”Thus began a century of federal, state, and local policies to quarantine Baltimore’s black population in isolated slums—policies that continue to the present day.In 1968, following hundreds of similar riots nationwide, a commission appointed by President Lyndon Johnson concluded that “[o]ur nation is moving toward two societies, one black, one white—separate and unequal” and that “[s]egregation and poverty have created in the racial ghetto a destructive environment totally unknown to most white Americans.” The Kerner Commission (headed by Illinois Governor Otto Kerner) added that “[w]hat white Americans have never fully understood—but what the Negro can never forget—is that white society is deeply implicated in the ghetto. White institutions created it, white institutions maintain it, and white society condones it.”When the Kerner Commission blamed “white society” and “white institutions,” it employed euphemisms to avoid naming the culprits everyone knew at the time. It was not a vague white society that created ghettos but government—federal, state, and local.In 1917, the U.S. Supreme Court found ordinances like Baltimore’s 1910 segregation rule unconstitutional, not because they abridged African Americans’ rights to live where they could afford, but because they restricted the property rights of (white) homeowners to sell to whomever.
