    It's Politics! Why DC stagnates. Also, the cancers of domestic, sexual violence

    in News

    Senior Political Editor Dr. Jim Picht will be talking with Communities Business Editor Terry Ponick to discuss why the wheels inside the beltway have ground to a stop; its not about what is right or wrong. They don't really care about the children on the border. Politics, getting their party re-elected and not losing seats are really what's important to your elected leaders. The discussion will start with the recent immigration bill that gave Dems what they wanted, plus one thing they did not - a medical device tax that would have Dems losing support of big business in key states. 


    Dems would have you believe otherwise, that they are the compassionate party that cares. Yep - but they care about the same things Republicans care about - not losing the power to obstruct the other side inside the beltway. 


    Communities writer Paula Carrasquillo, author of Escaping the Boy: My Life with a Sociopath will be discussing violence toward women, specifically the recent actions of Baltimore Raven's Ray Rice and if the punishment fits his crime.


    The show will close with a conversation with Jerome Elam, an internationally recognized advocate for the protection of children from sexual predators. Mr. Elam is a survivor of sexual trafficking and predators in his home and town.

    Bill Cosby, Sexual Violence and the Black Community Response - Pt. 1

    in Women

    The latest scandal involving Bill Cosby and the rape allegations, is a major topic on the web as of late. The responses have ranged from full support of him, to people wanting his head on a stake. However what is often overlooked is the impact that these discussions are having on the victims of rape and how the ridiculing of the women involved, is ultimately going to prevent even more rape victims from telling the what happened to them. The black community has a variety of views and a major one is why the women didn't come forward sooner. In fact, many have gone so far as to saying that the women involved in these allegations are all involved in some grand media conspiracy to "bring the black man down". We will discuss and explore the many aspects of this case and take your questions during the podcast. Please feel free to call in and share your views.

    LET’S TALK WHIPS, SPANKING, LOVE, GOD AND ABUSE AND WHO’S BUYING IT

    in Women

    So is S &  M the new missionary position? With ity shades of Gray comfortably ensconced as mainstream do we think of handcuffs and riding crops with a nudge, nudge, wink, wink attitude? If a husand slaps a wife is it sexy or abusive? And when some religious folks say they have a spouse's permission to spank them in order to carry out God's direction for head of households, do we look at the hitting differently?  In other words, when is it abuse, when is it fun, and how do we tell the difference? Or do we need to?


    Two guests will join the show this week to "school" us in the fine art of telling the difference between hurting, loving, giving permission for pain, and how to tell whether we are all being hoodwinked into thinking we are stodgy and unsophisticated if we don’t associate pain with love.


    Monika Johnson Hostler is the Executive Director of the North Carolina Coalition Against Sexual Assault (NCCASA).  Monika worked at the local rape crisis center in Scotland County as the Crisis Intervention Coordinator. Monika has been an activist in the social justice movement for more than 15 years. She has presented on the issue of sexual violence to numerous communities including the Joint Task for the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Military Academy subcommittee, and was appointed by the Obama administration to serve on the National Advisory Committee on Violence Against Women.


    Tre’Andre Valentine is a queer activist from Trinidad & Tobago and has been with The Network/La Red, a survivor-led social justice organization working to end partner abuse in lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer and/or trans*, SM and polyamorous communities since 2009 as the Community Programs Coordinator providing support services to survivors. Tre’Andre currently serves as the Director of Community Engagement, increasing visibility of the issue of LGBQ/T

    Free Ya Mind Radio Present Domestic Violence & The African American Community

    in Culture

    Family it's time to turn up our community talk and actions. We have a big problem in our balck community and it's call domestic violence. Did you know that according the statistics domestic violence is reported to be the highest in the black community? Intimate partner violence (IPV) as a major public health issue for women, in particular, African American women. The intersection of IPV and institutional racism doubly victimizes African American women as they try to break out of the cycle of violence. The research shows that IPV in the African American community is more common and violent than in the Caucasian community due to structural, cultural community, and situational contexts, overshadowed by institutional racism, that effect the romantic relationships of African American men and women. Research shows that the anger, hatred, and frustrations of African American men, caused by institutional racism, are being displaced onto their wives and lovers. THIS BROADCAST WILL BE HOSTED BY SISTA TRIA & BROTHA SUN RE9
