SORT BY Relevancy
On this episode of the ::ANSWERS:: show, we discuss "Racism in the Media."
The media plays a critical role as a major institution in society. Primarily speaking, their goal is to provide the masses with definitions about who we are as a people while reinforcing our values and norms. They give us concrete examples of what happens to those who transgress these norms; and most importantly, they perpetuate certain ways of seeing the world and peoples within that world. This immeasurable amount of power to shape how we think is both a gift and most certainly a curse.
The media is arguably responsible for the negative image it portrays of people of color. Have you ever noticed how the media portrays a person of color convicted of a crime versus a white person? Well, we have and we're going to talk about it.

Events in our recent past has once again brought this ugly topic back to the headlines and studios of the mainstream media outlets. It seems everyone from the President of the United States to the person sleeping under a bridge is either a racist or a victim of racism. Every day somewhere (just about everywhere) we hear of gatherings of people screaming and committing criminal acts in protest of unfair justice and "slave-like" treatment.
Preachers, politicians, community organizers and more continue to use racism as a tool in their war chest to further advance their own existence.
This topic really has us all "In the Pickle Barrel"!

TONIGHT 9P-Not everyone in America can appreciate how much racism is still very much an issue in this country, one that pervades many aspects of life. As many studies show, white Americans are often cut off from the realities of racism, living within homogeneous social networks and communities. But if you have any doubts about whether racism still exists in America, a real, open, honest conversation, might clear them up. Join the discussion. We want to hear your opinion.

Butterfly Evolution is turning the mic over to Amber Ivy and Jeremy Johnson/Blackout Media. Blackout Media reports...
According to the New Pittsburgh Courier and Free Press, there were some 18 black-owned stations in 2006, only 1.3% of all TV stations. In 2012 that number dropped to 5 and by 2013 it was zero due to buyouts by larger companies.
It is painful to see how our black brothers and sisters are portrayed on the news, television, and even movies. In 2015, directors continue to deal with systematic issues that cause black films with good storylines to not get funded because there is not a market for "good black films".
We have a trillion dollar buying power, so guess what WE are the market FOR? Join us as we discuss blacks in media and changing the narrative. We will also discuss the Black America 2.0 campaign to blackout media starting in May. Any media that continuously shows blacks in less than desirable light, we encourage you to stop watching. Yes to include, Hip Hop and Reality TV.
Join Butterfly Evolution in welcoming Blackout Media, Host, Tammy Gaitor and Rodney Jordan are looking forward to this discussion. Listen/comment at 818-691-7406 or register as a follower of the show in order to join the live chat. www.blogtalkradio.com/butterflyevolution.org
The story of Two Bucks, an East Side Bar in Milwaukee, may never recovery from an insedent that happened over the weekend. Black patrons, for no reaon were asked to leave the bar by the owner. Subsequently many of the employees quit and are now calling for a boycott of the bar. There are two situations with this story that I find interesting. We will discuss it and take your calls on this morning.
The Milwaukee River Development Paln
Currently there are 4 developers competing to develop the downtown site on the Milwaukee river. Court proceedings and law suites are already under way. One must wonder what kind of deals are being made and of course what officials are participating in Quid pro quo.
I looked at this story and wondered something rather strange. Is Common Core causing Blacks and people in poverty to be left out of opportunites. Sure you may wonder why I am going in this direction but take a listen to the show and you will see why.
Will Hillary Clinton Be Our Next President?
African-Americans really need to look closesly at the facts. Our inner cities that are failing are a direct result of Liberal politics. In essence this is the new slavery and we keep voting for it.
There have been no Democratic candidates that are a serious threat to Hillary Clinton step forward. It really makes me wonder why her scandal ridden past seems to be a non-issue to them. Benghazi, Quid pro quo deals, as well as distancing herself from her husbands crime bill issues are enough to really make one pause. At least they should, but some how this woman has been able to get around all of this. She has not and most likely will not sit down and do a long interview without knowing all of the questions in advance.

Laura Sullivan is a GRAMMY® winning composer and recording artist. Her original music has been included in the score of two Emmy winning documentaries, as well as in many popular television programs and advertisements for Fortune 500 companies.
Laura Sullivan's release Love's River won a GRAMMY® for BEST NEW AGE ALBUM in the 56th GRAMMY® awards which aired on CBS on January 26, 2014.
GRAMMY® winning composer, Laura Sullivan, called out to the world to join her in a powerful plan to make a music video. Her request was simple. Take a video of yourself singing her song “900 Voices” and send it to her. The response was overwhelming.
938 people from Australia, Brazil, Israel, Croatia, Korea, Kenya, India, and many other countries, participated by making videos on their cell phones and sending them to Laura.
The result is epic. 27 languages included in one song and video about love and unity. The video has been released on April 9, 2015 and is titled “900 Voices.”
50% of the music proceeds of “900 Voices” are going towards the national nonprofit Little Kids Rock. This organization partners with economically disadvantaged school districts to run music programs. To date they have served more than 325,000 children in 13 states.
