    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    For those of you who have forgotten the meaning of UNITY, this is a reminder :


    In 1925, despite an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, Garvey was sent to the Atlanta penitentiary. His The Garvey Letter From an Atlanta Prison is dated February 10, 1925, and excerpted below as follows:


    Fellow Men of the Negro Race Greetings


    I am delighted to inform you, that your humble servant is as happy in suffering for you and our cause as is possible under the circumstances of being viciously outraged by a group of plotters who have connived to do their worst to humiliate you through me, in fight for real emancipation and African Redemption. 


    I do not want at this time to write anything that would make it difficult for you to meet the opposition of your enemy without my assistance. Suffice to say that the history of the outrage shall form a splendid chapter in the history of Africa redeemed. When black man will no longer be under the heels of others, but have a civilization and culture of their own.


    The whole affair is a disgrace, and the whole black world knows it. We shall not forget. Our day may be fifty, a hundred or two hundred years ahead, let us watch, work, and pray, for the civilization of injustice is bound to crumble and bring destruction down upon the heads of the unjust. 


    My work is just begun, and when the history of my suffering is complete, then the future generations of the Negro will have in their hands the guide by which they shall know the “sins” of the twentieth century. I, and I know you, too, believe in time, and we shall wait patiently for two hundred years, if need be, to face our enemies through our prosperity."

    Cecil's Law

    in Environment

    Recently, an American dentist paid $50,000 to shoot and kill a lion in Africa. This lion was well-known and beloved by tourists and locals in Zimbabwe. Although the world was outraged, what this man did was perfectly legal. Although groups like LionAid and White Lion Trust, amongst others have been educating the world about the dwindling global lion population, they are still not a protected species.


    In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Stephen Travis, President of Protecting African Lions.org will talk about efforts to globally ban canned hunting. Stay tuned.

    The Frat House Sports Show #204

    in Sports

    You know what happens this weekend? How about NFL Football ! Yes indeed, it's quickly approaching "the most wonderful time of the year" and the fellas are back this evening with an all new Frat House Sports Show #204 !!


    Now look, we know the real NFL stuff is still weeks away, but hold the phone because there are plenty of storylines worth talking about ahead of the new season kick-off. With the release of the Tom Brady appeal hearing transcripts, the guys are looking closely at how the 4 game suspension ruling will (or won't) hold up to a Federal Judge. Menawhile, in Philadelphia Coach Chip Kelly can't seem to escape the judgement by former players of racial bias, while out in St.Louis,MO the edict is "Build it and they will come" even if it means THEY will have to pay for it, like it or not.


    What else is on "tap"? Ronda Rousey dismantles a bomb in less than a minute. The NY Mets look to swat pesky "nats" (who are YOU calling a fraud?). Heading to "the Glen" questions remain if Tony Stewart is racing opponents, or demons. Gary Bettman likes the shootout while Patrick Kane might need a bailout in NHL news, and Adam Silver has some ideas for NBA division winners.


    Get in the "House" (and in the Game) by calling in your opinions to: 347-826-9964 this Thursday evening starting at 7 pm (edt) !!
