SORT BY Relevancy
A white man on Texas death row for nearly 30 years could soon be free after an appeals court ruled that Dallas prosecutors improperly excluded blacks from his jury because they believed blacks would empathize with defendants.
Is this the same county that sentenced Shawanda Cotton to 7 years in prison for allegedly pushing a teacher at her school? Are whites now abusing Civil Rights protections to their own advantage?

The Seventies are called and set apart to be swift messengers to the nations of the earth having power to introduce the gospel wherever they may be sent, holding the keys of this kingdom...’’ Orson Pratt, Nauvoo Period Record, Book B, p. 31.
“What ordination should a man receive to possess all the keys and powers of the Holy Priesthood that were delivered to the sons of Adam? He should be ordained an Apostle of Jesus Christ. That office puts him in possession of every key, every power, every authority, communication, benefit, blessing, glory, and kingdom that was ever revealed to man. That pertains to the office of an Apostle of Jesus Christ....The Seventies possess the same power and authority; they hold the keys of establishing, building up, regulating, ordaining, and setting in order the kingdom of God in all its perfections upon the earth. We have a Quorum of High Priests, and there are a great many of them. They are a local body-they tarry at home...” (Brigham Young; Journal of Discourses, 26 vols., 9:, p.88)
"He stated that the Seventies are ordained apostles, and when they go forth into the ministry they are sent with power to build up the kingdom in all the world and consequently have power to ordain High Priests and also to ordain and organize a High Council." Discourse of Brigham Young; History of Brigham Young Manuscript; Dec 14, 1845.
3 Matthias, also, who was numbered with the apostles in the place of Judas, and the one who was honored by being made a candidate with him, are like-wise said to have been deemed worthy of the same calling with the seventy (showing the correct order of succession). Eusebius circa 280 AD
The Sixties, Seventies and Eighties were low points in the ongoing saga of drugs infiltrating our neighborhoods. In the suburbs as well as in the hood Angel Dust, Heroin and Crack destroyed many families and generations of our children have been neglected. We owe the youth an apology, because their reckless behavior i.e. The "N" word and no respect for elders is a direct result of our broken homes and our addictions. We can't heal until we admit we have a problem.
Join the Zaiyahs House Family as we try to heal the world... One laugh at a time.
KB THE REVOLUTIONARY RYDERS put their hands in the air for MIke Brown, Dontre Hamilton, Eric Garner and every other victim of police brutality and murder in America. For all intents and purposes Blacks born in the 1970s were the first real free born black people in this country. After the sacrifices made by our forefathers for equality, justice and a piece of the American dream we were expected to carry the torch for black progressiveness in this country. 44 years later where are we? Have we fulfilled the dreams and hopes of our forefathers? How free are we really? Have we totally lost the point of what the struggle was really about?? Why is Charles Barkley wearing that dumb ass cowboy hat? Tune in Saturday night at 7:30 PM CST
CHOCOLATE SITY........REAL REVOLUTIONARY!!!

El DeBarge Jr., namesake of the famous Motown singer El DeBarge, has released his first solo EP album on Industry Family Entertainment. The EP record is titled “The Lion's Den” and is a collection of original R&B and modern-soul tracks both written and performed by El DeBarge, Jr. “The Lion's Den” is an expertly executed, tastefully composed record that is sure to solidify young DeBarge as one of the year's most important up-and-coming R&B artists.
The main feature of the extended-play album is El DeBarge, Jr., himself. He is best classified as a singer, rather than merely a vocalist, a distinction that will set him apart from many modern performers of the R&B genre today. His voice and style are crisp, clean, and natural like his father's, though much more sonorous and soulful. His lyrical content tends mainly toward the romantic, though he has penned lines on several other topics in the past. His music has deep, snappy groove and tasteful melody lines. His rhythms take their cue from the best Motown artists of the late seventies and early eighties. While DeBarge Jr. definitely fits in with contemporary R&B singers such asBabyface or Chris Brown, he exudes a level of class and finesse more akin to Marvin Gaye, or even Al Green.
The “Lion's Den” EP is not his only recent activity, however, as he has also released a new video for his single, “Shawty R U OK.” The video, like the track itself, as well as the entirety ofDeBarge's material, showcases DeBarge's professional-yet-unpretentious demeanor
Denise Jannah was born in Suriname, South America. She moved to Holland in the seventies. For 4-5 years, she studied Law at the University of Utrecht, but her love for music made her change her course and she earned a degree as a vocal educator at the Conservatory in Hilversum. In 1989, she won 3rd prize at the Internationales Liederfestival Menschen und Meer in Rostock. She accepted a part in the musical A Night at the Cotton Club, in which she starred in 347 performances in Holland, Germany, and Belgium. In 1997, Jannah starred in Joe, The Musical. In 1998, Denise and Marjorie Barnes were the leading ladies in Fats Waller’s musical show Ain’t Misbehavin’, in European. She released several albums, three on Blue Note Records. Denise Jannah performed seven times at the North Sea Jazz Festival and toured from New York to Johannesberg to Japan. She won two Edison Awards, the Golden Orpheus (Bulgaria) and the Bata Anastacievic Festival Award (Serbia).

As we have progressed through more than four decades since the decline of the civil rights movement, we have experienced a complete shift in paradigms as far as the consciousness of our youth toward our struggle. During the late sixties and seventies, our youth stood up in rebellion against a system that was non-conducive to their quest for elevation and empowerment. With songs from artist such as Marvin Gay (Mother Mother) and James Brown (Say it Loud, I'm Black and I'm Proud). Music played a vital role in reinforcing a positive black image and a sense of pride within our youth.
During the 80s and the early 90s, hip hop rose to the occasion, with rappers and groups that flooded the air waves with positive messages. Groups, such as The Last Poets, Public Enemy, Brand Nubian, Sister Souljah, The Roots, and the list goes on, promoted a positive self-image and a political awareness that brought enlightenment and a sense of empowerment to the black youth. The positive image that flowed not only gave us something from a culture that was all our own, it taught us history that we were not getting through traditional education and main stream media.
Hip hop has been raped and pillaged, and it no longer resembles the art form that was undeniably African. It has become one of the most destructive forces in our community. Now, hip hop wages war against the very people who created it. In fact, one could argue that hip hop is no longer hip hop at all. White (Jewish) owned record labels have promoted the interpolation of disrespectful and misogynistic lyrics from their artist, and the result has been a decline in self-awareness by black youth, and a desensitization of the plight of the black race as a whole.
Join us as we discuss the current state of hip hop and its influence on black culture. We will also discuss how we can actually use this knowledge to our advantage
“Terrible” Tim Witherspoon was born and raised on the streets of South Philadelphia, and he came into the world in December 1957. Times were hard back then, and especially for the Witherspoon’s who lived between the Italians and the Irish, and the kids never went to school on St. Patrick’s day. Tim’s is a story about a boy who came up the hard way, but he never really knew what talent he had until the great Muhammad Ali picked him out to spar with him when he made his comeback in the late seventies. Within four years of becoming a professional boxer Tim was going toe-to-toe with Larry Holmes for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world, but the fight was promoted by Don King and, despite so many people saying he won that night; he knew the only way he was going to lift that belt was if he KO’d the champ. Somehow Larry stayed on his feet, and the rest as they say is history. Tim held two different versions of the World Heavyweight Championship, the WBC and the WBA Titles in the 1980’s. WitherspoonBelt He now resides in Philadelphia and spends time in the UK raising money for charity and visiting his family, as well as commentating and offering personal boxing training and guidance. This year he is writing his explosive autobiography with Ryan Danes, and training his son Tim Witherspoon Jr.
Tim Witherspoon (born December 27, 1957) is a retired American boxer who for two brief periods in the mid-1980s held the WBC then WBA World Heavyweight Championship titles.

Join us this week as we welcome pop music singer songwriter, Bean. Dallas-born, Nashville-raised, and Los Angeles-based, Noelle Bean began going by the surname “Bean” after her high school music teacher chose to address the budding musician by the one word alone. Now, you’re going to remember Bean after only one listen. When asked to describe her music:“It’s pop with a twist,” she smiles. “My influences and inspirations span everything from Motown to sixties and seventies classics like The Beatles, The Bee Gees, The Temptations, and The Jackson Five. I’m traveling down my own lane though.” In 2012, she was handpicked as 1 of 25 artists in the Macy’s and iHeartRadio “Rising Star” campaign, while both Pandora and iTunes created a “Bean Radio” channel. Her music appeared everywhere from OK TV to spots for Mitsubishi and Coca Cola’s Fantasy Soccer Camp. Meanwhile, she became a live draw opening for the likes of Colbie Caillat, Megan & Liz, Hot Chelle Rae, and Austin Mahone as well as giving a show-stopping set at Bonnaroo 2013. Everything has merely led up to the release of her two 2014 digital mini-albums — her new EP "Rollercoaster" which is available now, and one in the fall culminating in a physical special edition with extra tracks for the holidays. We will talk to Bean about her upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at her music, feature her latest songs, and ask her to share her message for the troops. Please be sure to visit Bean at http://beanmusic.com/ and spread the word. Fans are welcome to call in and speak live with with Bean during the show (718) 766-4193 As always we will give shout outs to our deployed military listeners.
