  • The Struggle Is Bigger Than US - Black Liberation Struggle in the U.S. & Africa

    in Current Events

    This week, we had the honor of screening a film by Annabel Park about the struggle to understand and move forward in a polarized racial climate in America, particularly the South.  The rough cut of the film - as yet untitled - was thought-provoking and emotional, and looked at the issue of race in Selma, North Carolina and South Carolina from the perspective of the Southern Blacks AND Whites.

    We'll talk about the film and our thoughts on it and the discussion we had afterward.

    We'll also look at the global struggle for liberation that is going on today in Africa, as we examine the protests against high university fees that South African students recently participated in.  What does the struggle look, sound and feel like for them?  What does that mean for US?

    We've got another pot of hot, unapologetic truth for you.  Bring a big cup!

    Stupid is as Stupid Does......A Don't Come out of a Bag, Wednesday

    in Entertainment

    Greeting and Salutations Tea Sippers!!  You already know what time it is...so make sure you have your voices clear and your thoughts in order as we are going to get down to the nitty gritty and serve up some delicious crumpets to go with this hot pot of tea as YOU are my CO-HOST! That's right, it's a Don't Come out of a Bag Wednesday and the rules are simple,  We can talk about Any and Everything that is on your mind, right here.. RIGHT NOW, BUT......if you decide to come out of a bag on me, I will come out of a Bigger Bag on YOU!!  

    There has been so much going on in the world and these are a few things that are on my mind this week:

    Black Folks vs. Raven-Simone:  Why is it that people seem to feel as though she is not entitled to her opinion?  The latest thing that has everyone in an uproar is the fact she said she would discriminate against people with those "ghetto" names.  Does she have a point or was she completely wrong?
    The Confederacy vs. The NAACP:  Why is it this thing with Stone Mountain has become such a fight? Is this a distraction or does The NAACP have a leg to stand?
    On the Job Care:  Why is it considered "Solitication" to care for your co-workers during hard times and bereavement periods?
    The Black Community vs. The Gay Community:  We say we are all about the struggle for inclusion and celebrating diversity, but yet when tragedy happens, neither side comes together in solidarity to support one another's cause. Why don't we come to the aid of one another, but we insist that each side support one another. Is that right?

    ?This is going to be one ole Hot Pot of Tea for your nerves, darlings, so be sure to have plenty of crumpets and make sure you bring your friends.

    Weekend wrap up: Ryan for Speaker? President Webb? Do the "elite" elect? & more

    in Politics Conservative


    Is the battle for the Speaker's chair nearing an end? Possibly, but don't bet on it. Rep. Paul Ryan can do the job, but will he? Would you believe less than two hundred donors have given over half of all campaign donations in the Presidential race?  Look out Bernie! Keep looking ahead, Hillary! There's a "Webb" that may get both of you tangled up. California says "Down with the Redskins! Raise the Confederacy!"

  • ISIS/some Americans want to change history by destruction. I say embrace history

    in Politics Conservative

    PROGRAM TIME: 8AM-9:30AM EST (thirty minute shorter than usual)

    All though history people have sought to change, destroy or ignore history for various reasons. Whether it is for a false sense of justice, revenge or self-serving reasons I feel it is wrong.The actions of ISIS throughout the Middle East and American citizens in the United States of America are just as bad. Today's debate will certainly offend some people while others will feel rectified. Other folks will just comment, "Who cares?"  This program is about our history...it is about our future.

    Should we really be supporting the Confederate flag right now? I am talking specifically to southern, white, conservative Christians.

    Live Chat: The Left Hand of Switch Trickery

    in Politics

    Nicole Franklin is a guest speaker, and the panel discusses how Supremacy has linked slavery in the US to the ongoing police killings of unarmed people.  Black people are regarded as “Cheap lives that don’t matter.” It gives the law enforcement “Power over all forms of life.” (White Supremacy & Devaluation of African Heritage - Huffington Post 8/6/2015.) American “National Security” invests heavily in police operations, prisons, weaponry and surveillance systems to maintain an established order in Black/Brown neighborhoods and “lock em up!”

    US Prisons are the new plantations. Prisoners are paid 25-50 cents an hour depending on seniority to make subcontracted products. The inmates get money on account so they can buy toilet paper from the prison store. The Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), the nation's largest owner of private prisons has had a 500% increase in revenue over 20 years.

    The California Prison System sub-contracts companies like Starbucks. Signature Packaging Solutions hires prisoners to package holiday coffees (as well as Nintendo Game Boys). Victoria's Secret and JC Penney hire inmates to sew lingerie. A California prison put two men in solitary for telling they were ordered to replace "Made in Honduras" labels with "Made in the USA."  At California's prison dental laboratory, inmates produce custom dental trays, bite blocks, and dentures.

    The guns are turned inward. The US Security System is working toward a speedy Black massacre.  Drive-bys, crack pipes and illiteracy fulfills the US continued holocaust measures. As the Black skin pigment disappears under the radiation of the cruel invisible hate-imp, it molds the Black Race into statues standing tall to model the “Old Guard”—Confederacy Flag fly on.” The flags have been lowered, but the mindset is embedded in the US populace.

I combine my knowledge of the flora with folklore, telling interesting stories that go with the botany of what I do.”

    Ila, known as THE LADY OF THE FOREST, is an interpretive naturalist, artist, wildcrafter, and gourmet cook with more than 25 years experience teaching the cultural heritage of native plants. She is a staff instructor for the Univ. of Tenn.’s Smoky Mtn Field School, guest instructor for the Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont, the John C.
