the revolution of the mind continues...
Every week the MadMen come with real and controversial topics. This week is no different.
the revolution of the mind continues....
Join the MadMen as we take a look at the curious case of RANISHA MCBRIDE. Was this a case of "home protection or cold blooded murder? Does this case draw any parallels to the Travon Martin fiasco? Will having a black DA for the prosecution mean a racially divided case or will it mean a true investigation into the justification of the shooting of RANISHA? In this pro-gun culture, can we cast stones at someone who feels he was protecting his home?
Does Black America believe this man just saw her face and decided to shoot just because she happened to be Black? Can we put a case on him?

OUR COMMON GROUND with Janice Graham
"Speaking Truth to Power and Ourselves"
This Week on OUR COMMON GROUND
"Amerikkan Law Enforcement: A Culture of White Violence and Privilege"
The Renisha McBride Murder Trial
Before Eric Garner was killed by NYC police officers,his last words before the fatal chokehold were, "THIS STOPS NOW".
City and political leaders across the country have accepted one "police death" after another. Some of them many Black people supported enthusiastically. How do we hold them accountable and when for the culture of violence under which law enforcement operates? When do WE draw the line in the sand?

SPONSORED BY MARK PITTMAN--The protests in the Mike Brown death which has become a nationwide voice for the other fallen victims of police vigilanteism against African-Americans still goes strong after more than two weeks. Our children have gained allies from some unexpected sources, but they have also drawn in the enemies that the generation before them has tried so hard to conceal. Have the protests empowered our youth? Built their confidence and will to stand their ground? Or have they become angry rebels, as the media attempts to continually portray them?

With the rash of violence by LAW ENFORCEMENT against men of color, I feel is IMPORTANT that people have a place to voice their concerns. Social media is getting real heated with people on BOTH SIDES. Yet what we also finding out is that their is a group of people in this country that have absolutely no problem killing UNARMED SUSPECTS as long as those supspects are black or brown. Good people have to speak louder and drown out the hatred discuised as support for Law Enforcement. Lastly we feel after the Michael Brown murder that their MUST be a NATIONAL LAW ENFORCEMENT Code of Conduct to rein in those rogue police chiefs and depatments.
WE ARE AT WAR LADIES & GENTLEMAN! It's hunting season and black men in America are the PREY! In light of the recent tragic events surrounding Eric Garner, Mike Brown & Ezell Ford, we at The Shootout Show feel that is our right, duty and obligation to talk to our viewers about these events and what must be done to remedy these unfortunate events. Not only do we need to combat the injustices imposed on us by others, but we need to fix the strife we have amongst ourselves. This Saturday at 8:00 EST, please join Brian, Akua & Tut on the live broadcast of The Shoutout Show! We Want & Need to hear from you! (914) 338-1628 is the number to call.

Just a few moments ago (yesterday afternoon), attorneys for the family of slain teenager, Michael Brown, issued a statement, calling for justice, that they say is forthcoming, and expressing outrage at what they and many, consider to be posthumous character-assassination.
Much has transpired since the shooting of Brown, 18, at the hands of whom we know now, is Officer Darren Wilson, a six-year veteran of the Ferguson, Missouri Police Department.
Yet, much remains unexplained, as to exactly what led to the confrontation between Brown and Wilson, and the shooting.
There were protests, some violent, replete with looting of liquor and convenience stores, as well as peaceful demonstrations, both, manifestations of what is seen as simmering tensions between the black community and the police.
While I wanted to take up last week’s conversation, by speaking directly to the Renisha McBride (now, 2nd-Degree murder case), the events in Ferguson have pushed this again and unfortunately, to the side; though some would argue their eerily similarities. And I do want to at some point, discuss in depth, Obama’s Afri-Con meeting with over 50 African leaders.
Yes, there will be another Iraq War.
Long Live Marcus Garvey!
