SORT BY Relevancy
Join us with guest Michele Lang, Assoc. Director of Campus Ministries·at Warner Pacific of Portland, OR and BJ Lindhurst, 16 year old James Logan student. How do we have these conversations about the protests in a constructive way? What is the issue- race, injustice, police brutality, unruly kids?
We all have certain causes that we support – Whether it’s the recent protests against police violence, harassments or killing of unarmed citizens, or even the cruelty of animals. But what if your support to the causes or beliefs could cost you your job?
Dr. Misee Harris, you may know her as the “Black Bachelorette”, is one of those people who paid the cost of supporting the protests against the killing of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. Dr. Harris is going to share with us her experiences when the work place can try to dictate what you support in an open arena.
Also, we are so pleased to have Actor, Dennis LA White, join us again. If you can remember, Dennis and Actor Cherie Johnson were racially profiled and harassed during a vacation to South Carolina. Since he and Cherie’s encounter, we’re going to get his reaction to the recent “No Indictments”, and what these decisions mean to those in the entertainment industry.
Join us on Wednesday, January 7, 2015, at our NEW TIME, 8:00pm PST/ 10:00pm CST/ 11:00pm EST.

Jon, Jane and Bob lost some of their audience when they scheduled their show in American Samoan time zone. It was 90 minutes late. Jane highlights student bravery in Hong Kong and what stunts were used to prevent the protests from continuing (even though they are.) Bob disputes if the man who was going to jump in Hong Kong's city square was authentic. Jon's major topic this week was about Californians embracing every religion and value, being open to everything. The latter topic was Russa and social media and the effects of oil profits in Russia and economic distribution.
Suddenly, it feels like the 1960s again, with swirling movements for social justice finding inspiration and a powerful common denominator in the struggle for black equality.
Multiracial, multi-ethnic, multi-class, and multi-generational Americans have swarmed the streets in vast numbers to not only protest against racial injustice but to expose systemic oppression that has been an open secret since the heyday of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
The decision by a Staten Island, New York, grand jury not to indict Police Officer Daniel Pantoleo in the choking death of Eric Garner came nine days after Ferguson, Missouri, erupted into an open rebellion following another grand jury’s decision not to indict former police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, a black teenager.
While violence engulfed parts of downtown Ferguson, 170 cities staged largely peaceful demonstrations both in solidarity with the #BlackLivesMatter movement and in demand of a vision of social justice that far surpasses the imagination of most contemporary politicians and pundits.
Thousands of New Yorkers took to the streets on Wednesday and Thursday nights to express outrage against the political system that allowed a black man to be choked to death while screaming, “I can’t breathe!”
Across the country this movement has been spreading with protesters stopping traffic on highways and busy streets. Here in Baltimore protesters attempted to shutdown the annual Christmas tree lighting in downtown Baltimore. Do events like this help or hurt the cause
