SORT BY Relevancy
TONIGHT 9P- Back in November 2014, students in Norfolk, Va. staged a noontime walkout on Monday in protest of the actions of one of the high school’s top faculty members. A racist and offensive tweet from an assistant principal was at the heart of the show of solidarity. Although, many do not like to pull the race card it's hard to ignore the reality race still plays a role in our society. Listen and participate in this evening's discussion. We want to hear your opinion. Dial 917-889-3926 to comment LIVE. REAL TALK. REAL PEOPLE. REAL TIMES.

We will discuss the rebellions taking place all over the world and what is means to the liberation and rise of our people.
What's happening across this country and world, is bigger than Mike Brown ( RIP),Jordan Davis ( RIP), Trayvon Martin ( RIP), Rekia Boyd, Miriam Carey (RIP), Shereese Francis (RIP), Kathryn Johnston(RIP), Joseph Slater (RIP), Eric Garner ( RIP) ,Kendrick Johnson ( RIP) , Aiyana Jones ( RIP), Tamir Rice ( RIP), Walter Scott( RIP), Freddie Grey ( RIP), countless unarmed black men/women murdered by racist cowards within these policing agencies - Good shoots vs. Bad Shoots, why did he run, did he/she have a criminal past, or anything that we do to ourselves as a people
In truth, the blood of our Ancestors soaks the soil of America, it was that same blood which built this entire nation- It was that same blood that gave birth to humanity, it is that same blood which is giving birth to our new determination for the future.
We are all aware of the cold-blooded murder of Freddie Gray by white officers on the Baltimore police force. They separated our Brother's neck from his spine in what is one of the most police brutal murders in a few weeks.
Now, reports are emerging saying that CRIPS and BLOODS in the Baltimore area have unified and organized to declare war on the police department. Some of us want to get excited at the premise that our Brothers would come together to defend our community. And if it is true, they are going to need as much support from the Black community as possible. And of course, we are here to support our field warriors as best we can in their battle to prevent terrorism from continuing in the Black community.
Or are the police and the rest of the european white racist infrastructure using our people's anger against white aggression and murder of our people as a justification to prepare to commit genocide against Baltimore's youth?
Tune in tonight while we discuss what's happening in the streets of Baltimore and discuss how we can be of assistance to any resistance fractions that may actually exist there who are trying to protect the lives in the Black community.
Quite often, there are people who can be described as "a person for a time such as this."
Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Teddy Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and so many others come to mind. Looking back on the context of their times in history, we loft them into super human statuses and forget that they were born like the rest of us and they have died like we all will.
What unites all of these names from our history is the common trait that they had the courage to stand up, speak up and "ACT UP!!"
That last phrase Act Up comes from our featured guest for this episode of The #SocialSpitballShow.
Dixon D. White is a self-described redneck and reformed racist. Dixon has many experiences to draw from to elicit truth about race, which is, in part, that we cannot ignore it away. Dixon calls on fellow White Americans to embrace their "White Racial Responsibility" to speak up and ACT UP when they see racial hurt.
I personally love the term "Act Up" because it makes me think of a child misbehaving, but also the clever bumper sticker that says that "Well-Behaved Women Never Make History." It's true & fitting because we need to step outside of our "comfort zone" of complacency and condoning of a terrible history of racism and violence in this country.
This history of racism and violence manifests itself as much today as in the past. Racism is not over. We need to stand up to racism. With courageous folks like Dixon White speaking up and acting up on the subject, we can be sure to bring more healing and common ground.
Won't you tune in and hear from this amazing & inspiring man and others like him? Barbara and I are excited to get this conversation going...

In news making international headlines, several Native actors were told "If you guys are so sensitive, you should leave,...", in response to their concerns of denigrating and racist portrayals of Native people. They left the production.
Hollywood has long been known for stereotyping Native characters, or portraying the white hero who saves the day for the Natives as if they were incapable of overcoming insurmountable adversity.
One Navajo actor, Loren Anthony, originally refused to participate in the film, but changed his mind when he was told a cultural consultant was hired to ensure a "tasteful representation" of Natives. They told me it was going to be a comedy, but it would not be racist he said. Other Native actors and actresses expressed their concern, but were ignored and told they should leave. When they left, including the consultant, the story went viral and was reported on CNN International.
Critics say they should have expected anything different because it is satire. The definition of satire is:
1. the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.
2. a literary composition, in verse or prose, in which human folly and vice are held up to scorn, derision, or ridicule.
3. a literary genre comprising such compositions.
Netflix, who signed Sandler defended defended him, "The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous. It is a broad satire of Western movies and the stereotypes they popularized, featuring a diverse cast that is not only part of -- but in on -- the joke."
David Hill, Choctaw, says the producers has called back the consultant and those who left. We'll be speaking with David Hill and others about their experiences with this racial stereotyping. Please join us friday evening on Eaglemanz: Chahta Nation.
After weeks of killings in South Africa the African nations most affected have started to take actions against the Nation of South Africa. Nigeria has called for a trade embargo against South Africa. From The Barr News paper Kenn Ukaoha issued this statement from NANTS "Unfortunately, we have not seen enough measures by the South African government either to intervene or halt this wanton looting or protect innocent lives of law abiding immigrants whose contributions to South Africa's political and economic prosperity cannot be overemphasised."
The Nations of Africa are holding the President of South Africa responsible for supporting the violence through his reluctance to act against the Murderers and against Goodwill Zwethelini's inflamitory statements. This small excerpt from an article by Tabia Princewill says, "Julius Malema of the opposition party to the ANC said that President Zuma and the South African state promoted a culture of violence and xenophobia which led to Black South Africans attacking migrants and foreigners." Africans from neighboring countries that came to assist the poor economy after the fall of the Apartheid Regime whom they blame for their own economic misfortune.
Of all the orginzations PAC headed by Chris Sankara is in full force in the streets protesting against the government, that has not done anything until this week to even try to quell the situation. In the news today I saw masses of supportoers of the PAC orginization and others come together as one and confront the Zuma presidency and the officals of the Government in South Africa. As Pan Africanist all over the planet are watching the movements of the Government and Zwethelini the supposed King of the Zulu's, we are expecting Justice for the people murdered in the streest of South Africa in broad daylight. Senseless Murder by the Mob is Anarchy
Why are so many people of color from oppressed communities routinely disengaged when it comes to mainstream politics in the United States? What role has structural racism, white supremacy and capitalism played in this? What are some of the things that need to be done in order for historically oppressed people of color to develop vastly different (and more effective) political alternatives to the mainstream Democratic and Republican parties? Tune in to this show to hear the thoughts and perspectives of several college students regarding this issue, and many more.
in Pop Culture
You've probably heard the news by now: the variety TV show Sábado Gigante will end his record-breaking 53-year run on the air come September.
The show started in Chile in 1962, but after moving to Miami in 1986, it became an institution of Latino television in the United States, and a cultural touchstone of the immigrant experience.
But Sábado Gigante was not free of controversy: even when the immediate reactions after the news of the show's cancelation broke were cries of "devastation," as they days went a very different reaction came to light. Several critics expressed their hatred of a show they considered "racist and misogynistic."
Here, José Manuel Simián and Marcelo Báez discuss the impact of the Sábado Gigante on Latino pop culture, and interview blogger Laura Martínez and former member of the show's Clan Infantil, Paz Zárate.
UPDATE: During his interview with Laura Martínez, José Manuel Simián made an implicit reference to Univisión's host Fernando Fiore, who is no longer with the network.
Showtime 8AM-10AM EST
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"!
