    in LGBT

    Join your host Elliott Skaggs with special guest Oberyn Kunning on "Queer Spirits: Empowering the Tribe" on discussing body image issues in gay culture. Many gay men feel they are objectified and/or marginalized both in their gay culture experience. Issues of body take on varying multi-sectional issues of age, race, size, objectification, and even gender expression. We escape a heteronormative mold often to encounter the homonormative one. This episode we will discuss these issues and more as they relate to gay male body issues.

    Baltimore Burning: Black Intifada?

    in Culture

    Listener Call in # (347) 857-4514


    In this episode Global Peeks looks at the intensifying cry for justice being played out in the streets of America. With the continued murder of Black & Brown people by the United States security forces—the police, resistance is growing from the anger of communities who feel besieged. Images of youth physically resisting the onslaught of militarized police are a reminder of other resistance to oppression and persecution such as the Intifada in Palestine. The police are like an occupied force of empire in the Black communities. Some describe them as a force of containment and control of Black & Brown people.

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

     


    "Wherever our people are, we're fighting. We're fighting against a worldwide vicious system that hooks us in. We must break this system." Stokely Carmichael "Africa is ours. It belongs to us. Mother Africa produced us. Steve Bantu Beko "Briefly defined therefore, Black Consciousness is in essence the realization by the black man of the need to rally together with his brothers around the cause of their oppression - the blackness of their skin - and to operate as a group in order to rid themselves of the shackles that bind them to perpetual servitude.  Blackness is IMPORTANT DONT LOOSE SIGHT OF WHAT YOU ARE CREATED OF, WHAT YOU ARE CREATED TO BECOME. A Whole united People, 360 degress of Knowledge.


    In ARABIC DAWAH the letters are equal to 360 which is also the diameter of all spheres or circles which is how protons, newtrons and electrons move.   As you see it is in accordance with your scriptures that say "In the beginning there was Blackness.   Allah which we see in all the scriptures is of BLACKNESS. Created himself before he created light.


    "Inspired by our common determination to promote understanding among our people and cooperation in all matters pertaining to their survival and advancement, we will support the aspirations of our people for brotherhood and solidarity in a larger unity transcending all organizational differences; Malcolm X.   How can we become a Whole Black People killing each other?  What has created this idea in the minds of African People today? Is not the White Establishment killing us fast enough? Or has it become a world of the Willy Lynch syndrome Niggars?
