SORT BY Relevancy
Miami, Florida: vacation spot to the stars, and home to the some of the world's most rich and famous. The city is threatened after a renowned, local dealer is murdered by the Dade county police. It is known that it was a contract hit and that the force carried it out.
Thadeus' son, Trap, feels that he is heir to the throne, and tries to claim his inheritance. As young Trap stumbles blindly trying to maintain his personal life along with balance and order in the streets, Thadeus' brother, Murdock, is determined to find out who called the hit, and why his brother was assassinated.
In a parallel world where nothing is as it seem, both men soon realize that the challenges that they face are deeper than they imagined, and the hidden secrets that are found are detrimental enough to threaten the life of anyone who knows the forbidden truth.
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...
Been a wild week on Rocky Top. @AwDarago & @LeeCrowe will hit all the hot spots with the most straightforward talk available.

Fresh out the federal pen after serving a bid for armed robbery, Anthony Padmore is whisked to the beautiful island of Anguilla as a reward for keeping his mouth shut. His adoptive brothers have prepared a week of celebration fit for King Solomon himself, but while frolicking on the beach, basking in his newfound freedom, he runs into the stunning Soldada Andrews…
