  • 9-2-2015- Should Black People Get Reperations ?/ Should Prostitution Be Legal?

    in Politics

    To ADDRESS the terrible human and economic costs of slavery and racial injustice in the United States, many have proposed that reparations be paid to African-Americans.


    Would this compensate for the wrongs that have been done? Is it fair or practical to consider it? And if reparations were approved, how would they be implemented?


     


    Proponents of legalizing prostitution believe it would reduce crime, improve public health, increase tax revenue, help people out of poverty, get prostitutes off the streets, and allow consenting adults to make their own choices. They contend that prostitution is a victimless crime,Opponents believe that legalizing prostitution would lead to increases in sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDS, global human trafficking, and violent crime including rape and homicide. They contend that prostitution is inherently immoral, commercially exploitative, empowers the criminal underworld, and promotes the repression of women by men.

    Kanye for Prez! - more Climate Change Garbage - Miley Cyrus role model?

    in Pop Culture

    Hr1  Did Kanye West really say he was going to run for president? God help us!


    President Obama doubles-down on the climate change lie while touring Alaska. Does he realize how many global warming predictions have failed over the last 40 years?


    Hr2  Man on the street, Mark Dice, asks people to sign the petition to "support illiteracy." Yep, they're signing it.


    Academics ponder the question... are religions a virus of the mind?


    Los Angeles ICE arrest 244 illegals. MOST already had criminal convictions.


    If we're really going to be compassionate to immigrants, shouldn't we clear the path for those who've been waiting for years and years and years and years... instead of just giving law-breaking illegals the right to stay ahead of those doing the process legally?


    Hr3  Pop culture: Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton, and Kanye West.


    Jesse Watters asks, can white men ever be oppressed? Northeastern University seems to think that's the case.


    Federal judge orders release of information that would tie Obama to IRS scandal. Anyone think that info will ever come out?


    Discussing the racial breakdown in sports.


    Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

    There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.

    Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.

    The Purpose

    in Music

    America Never Abolished Slavery


    This past Black History Month, millions of students were told the story of how America abolished slavery 150 years ago with ratification of the 13th Amendment. The story draws an upward trajectory of racial equality in America from the abolition of slavery to Brown v. Board of Education to the Civil Rights Act to the election of President Obama.


    The problem is the story isn't true. We never actually abolished slavery. The 13th Amendment states:


    Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.


    "...except as a punishment for crime..." This phrase gets ignored in America's telling of its slavery story. The 13th Amendment did not abolish slavery but rather moved it from the plantation to the prison. In 2015, the 2 million (largely Black) people incarcerated in America are legally considered slaves under the Constitution. As a result, they can and are forced to work for pennies an hour with the profits going to counties, states and private corporations including Target, Revlon and Whole Foods. In fact, there are more Black people enslaved today than in 1800.


    This is no accident. In The New Jim Crow, Michelle Alexander lays out how a system of Jim Crow replaced slavery and later how a system of mass incarceration rose to replace Jim Crow. During Reconstruction, Southern states quickly took advantage of the 13th Amendment's slavery loophole by arresting Black people for minor crimes such as unemployment, loitering or gambling, and selling them to private employers through the convict lease system. Today, the majority of Black people enslaved in prisons were arrested for drug crimes. Even though Black people use drugs at the same rate as White people, they are incarcerated .

  • The Parker J Cole Show -- America's Racial DNA

    in Entertainment

    The media has brought to the forefront cases that have caused public outrage and concern. From the curious case of Trayvon Martin killed by George Zimmerman, Michael Brown gunned down as an unarmed felon, to the disturbing incidents surrounding the death of Sandra Bland, there is a definite rise in racial tensions across the United States as the media blares a giant searchlight on situations of African Americans in some sort of confrontation with a Caucasian.

    When these incidents come into the public eye, they lead to an overarching question: "Why?" One black man made a very famous statement while being beaten by a group of police officers: "Can't we all just get along?" The statement has been taken seriously and at the same time, been made a parody. But the question, however one puts it remains. "Can't we all just get along?"

    Is racism simply part of America's DNA -- what makes up this country? Is this just a thing we have to live with and accept? Will those who try to work to bring harmony on either side be ridiculed? Why can't we as a nation get past this? Why does it keep rearing its head? 


    Join in on the conversation with my returning guest Melissa Pellew as we try to tackle this issue and others surround the rise of racial tensions in our country.
