Scandal and how it is a preview for universal healthcare on a national scale.
Also, in New York City, Mayor Bloomberg's tobacco law took effect this past week. You now have to be 21 to buy any tobacco products in the city. Is this right? Does it effectively help the youth? Remember, you have to be 21 to buy it, yet older than 14 to use it.
The Brooklyn Republican Party this year officially did not grant one Wilson-Pakula to any Democrat, the first time in a very long time. Vito and Vito discuss the original court case and if it is beneficial in the long run of politics.
Louisana's Creole culture and a famed New Orleans' neighborhood share the spotlight on today's show. Our Creole cultural exploration takes us just outside New Orleans to the Old Mississippe River Road where we'll share the story of a Creole family and a plantation named Laura--voted "Best history tour in the USA" by Lonely Planet Travel and a top travel attraction in Louisiana. Laura Plantation, named after Laura Locoul Gore, is an old sugarcane plantation over 200 years old. We experienced life on the plantation as a member of the Locoul family through the voice of one of Laura's decendents, Norman Marmillion.
We will also visit Faubourg Treme with filmmaker Dawn Logsdon. Treme is considered the oldest black neighborhood in America and the birthplace of the civil rights movement in the South. Treme is a place where African-Americans lived free during slavery and became a place of social and economic diversity.

There aren't very many people left in the world who will not agree that Black America has some serious issues.
Not just "issues" like everybody else, but some very serious mental and emotional health, as well as socio-economic problems that are directly related to racism.
Toure of MSNBC used the words "The Power of Whiteness" to answer a female who stated that "her ancestors came here with nothing and made it work" (not). His word covered VOLUMES of truth about the impact of skin-color racism on Black people around the world; Black people of all shades, ethnicities, and backgrounds. Impossible as it is to write a book in six words or less, Toure achieved this in FOUR: The Power of Whiteness.
No one in the world can claim that bigotry and prejudice -even when it comes from Black people- has affected and impacted them the way racism has impacted us.
Last time, we talked about "Plantation Picaninnies": The subjection, objectification and abuse of Black women.
We already know what happened to us -we've heard it over and over- but there is a bigger picture about what we do to ourselves that self-implodes and hampers and impedes our own social and moral progress.
Why? What's wrong? What will it take before we "get it," or will someone else give it us first?
Tune in for the next segment of "Plantation Picaninnies": Black People Need to Come Clean.
How did free birth control become the new norm? Better yet, why do we expect anything for free?
Look out smokers, employers will fire you if you dont stop smoking.
How did we get to the point where we can't fund our school? We now have to rely on a tobacco tax to pay for education.
The Teacher's union, the downfall of American Education.
The Washingtons of Wessyngton Plantation: Stories of My Family’s Journey to Freedom with John F. Baker Jr.
Genealogy expert John F. Baker Jr. was born in 1962, in Springfield, Tennessee and has lived his entire life just a few miles from Wessyngton Plantation, in a town populated by hundreds of descendants of its slaves. His book, The Washingtons of Wessyngton Plantation: Stories of My Family’s Journey to Freedom, was published by Atria, a division of Simon & Schuster. When Baker was in the seventh grade, he discovered the story of his ancestors when he saw a photograph of four former slaves in his social studies textbook. Months later he learned that they were his grandmother’s paternal grandparents, Emanuel and Henny Washington, who were once enslaved on Wessyngton Plantation. The plantation was founded in 1796 by Joseph Washington, a distant cousin of President Washington. He has interviewed dozens of individuals ranging from 80 to 107 years old to collect their oral histories. He studied more than 11,000 documents to trace the lives of his ancestors, the Washington family and more than 300 other African Americans enslaved on Wessyngton Plantation, the largest tobacco plantation in America. For more than thirty years through extensive historical research, Baker has created a groundbreaking work in African American history and American history.
THE WORLDCLASS SMARTAZZ and The REVOLUTIONARY RYDERS, examine the plantation mentality that white America has developed. In "Post racial America" everything is supposed to be all good for black folks, racism is dead in America...right? The string of ridiculously malicious, racist acts across this country has shown us that whites hate blacks now more than ever. The NBA debacle was just a reminder that no matter what we think we are still house niggas and field niggas.Why should black America even care about how they feel about us, why are we contiously shook and hurt every time white folks show their true colors? How does freedom of speech play into things?

Shereen Renee, communications director for King's Town Family Foundation, asks a blunt question on this episode of Roundtable: Why is the world hating on Black women?
Is it jealousy, bitterness, or 'something else'?
Join the panel to discuss the reasons why Black women often have such low self-esteem issues and the mental health disparities that often cause us to "unravel at the seams" and "ack a straight fool" even when it's uncalled for.
Today's show will find World Footprints traveling to the crown jewel of Louisiana's River Road, revisiting a dark chapter in American history, and uncovering the best that New Orleans has to offer.
The Houmas House in Darrow, Louisiana is an antebellus plantation and sister property of the famous Greenbrier Resort in Virginia. This historical jewel sits between New Orleans and Baton Rouge and contains a treasure trove of history within its walls. We were pleased to spend a day with the planation's colorful owner, entrepreneur Kevin Kelly and learn what he is doing to preserve Houmas House as a living history and decorative arts showcase.
Then, the greatest act of slave resistance in American history took place in 1811 just outside of New Orleans and has remained largely untold, until now. Author Daniel Rasmussen joins us to discuss his book, American Uprising: The Untold Story of America's Largest Slave Revolt, and shed new light on the great American paradox--slavery.
Finally, native New Orleanian and travel writer Laura Martone is the author of the Moon Travel Guide to New Orleans and she stops by to offer an insider's guide to the best that New Orleans has to offer.
According to The Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia at Ferris State University: "The picaninny was the dominant racial caricature of black children for most of this country's history."
The Abuse, Subjection, Subjugation and Objectification of Black Women and Children the world over is a fact, and with that pain also come the MEN -our sons and fathers, nephews, brothers, uncles, cousins- through our wombs, who cannot remain children forever; but we MUST raise them, we DO raise them, for better or for worse in sickness and in health until death do us part.
The abuse of Black women worldwide is not every now and again, it happens so much that we internalize it and do it to ourselves. These are the kinds of things that we go through on a DAILY basis, around the clock - non-stop, without relinquishment. It is never any wonder why so many Black women behave the way we do, given the circumstances.
Whether we are in church battling over a 'position' or a label in corporate America, or fighting and competing with one another in a dead heat out in the streets, the end results are always the same: More abuse and more objectification. A revolving door cycle that never ends and gets passed on, and WE ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO HAVE THE POWER TO END IT.
What is the FIRST STEP TO HEALING? Acknowledging that there IS a problem. Period. We cannot keep ignoring these things and think that the world will get any better, or that it will just go away. IT MATTERS: Hurt people hurt people.
