This week, Letitia Wong joins Melissa Pellew as we tackle the topic of the growing "White Privilege" Movement. Is there a such thing as white priviliege in America? Is this just a game of divide and conquer? How are we to look at issues of race and racial reconciliation biblically? What could be the impact on the mobility and dignity of minorities if white privilege theory becomes a common mindset in America? Will the degeneration into tribalism give people the proper view of the human person? Or, will people become rats with different colored fur? How easily will people of different tribes succumb to real power by others and become enslaved?
On the air with us to discuss this topic will be Rev. C.L Bryant. Rev. Bryant, an outspoken pastor, civil rights leader, and producer of Runaway Slave, a documentary about the race to free the black community from the slavery of tyranny and progressive policies. Rev. Bryant, a former NAACP chapter president in Garland, TX, who has appeared on Fox News, CNN, and is a fellow with Freedom Works, abandoned the NAACP which he felt was more about political posturing, and less about civil rights. As a former Democratic Radical who escaped the bondage of Progressivism and denounced the shackles of entitlements, he has committed himself to helping others secure the blessings of liberty that are guaranteed by the Constitution with his new found conservative values. This discussion is sure to be very enlightening and engaging so you do not want to miss it!
For this episode we have two candidates for Congress, followed by a discussion on Religion.
*Our first Congressional candidate is Dr. Brenda Cleary, running in a Democratic primary to replace do-nothing, conservative Tea Party Republican incumbent Rep. George Holding, who was recently caught asleep at the helm of a session of Congress during the Government Shutdown. She is a lifelong Democrat born in Indiana, having moved to North Carolina to head the North Carolina Center for Nursing 20 years ago. She moved with her family after obtaining her PhD in Geriatrics/Nursing at the University of Texas at Austin.
Dr. Cleary is a breath of fresh air on the subject of health care & would bring her passion for the middle class, the working poor & the health of alll to DC.
You can listen to Dr. Cleary at the top of the 7pm Eastern hour: http://www.clearyforcongress.com/
*Our 2nd candidate is a passionate Pacific Northwest progressive who is running for Washington's 4th Congressional seat.
Gary Downing echoes Dr. Cleary's call to stand up for the Affordable Care Act. He poses a very pertinent question on his website:
"Is it wrong to make sure we have a healthy nation? The answer is no."
He also makes a point on immigration reform that there are many folks that have lived in this country as much as 60 years who do not have citizenship.
Gary Downing stands up for the working class, middle class and for the TRUE prosperity of our nation, working together to solve our problems.
Gary is a lifelong resident of the "Tri-Cities" area in Eastern Washington & you can hear him at the midpoint of the 7pm Eastern hour: http://www.downing4congress.com/

Oct. 5 marks the 200th anniversary of the death of a North American hero and leader. Tecumseh (1768-1813) was killed in action at the Battle of the Thames, also known as the Battle of Moraviantown, near what is now the city of Chatham, by American troops. His was a life, if ever there was one, lived on the heroic scale. Tecumseh, whose name can be translated as "panther in the sky," was a Shawnee born in Ohio. His vision was of a pan-Indian alliance that would cut across traditional tribalism and for a new territory in the Ohio, Indiana and Michigan region that would form a new Indian nation. Tall and handsome, he was a leader but never really a chief of his own people. He disputed the chiefs' authority to sell lands to the Americans, asking whether it was also possible to sell the air.
“The thing about Tecumseh is that he’s still as charismatic as he was. Even 200 years later, he’s still exerting that charisma beyond the grave.”
“Tecumseh had a certain grandeur,” said Charlene Houle, tourism development officer for the city of Chatham-Kent, Ontario, where the Battle of the Thames was fought 200 years ago. “He united all those people under him, thousands of people. He was one of those charismatic leaders who had a vision and worked to get it.”&l
The "Iko Nini Show" w/ Mwalimu Tsihugwa - Is Tribalism Killing Kenya's Social, Econ. & Pol. Fabric ?
Wikipedia defines "Tribalism" in the following manner:
"The social structure of a tribe can vary greatly from case to case, but, due to the small size of tribes, it is always a relatively simple role structure, with few (if any) significant social distinctions between individuals.
The other concept to which the word tribalism frequently refers is the possession of a strong cultural or ethnic identity that separates one member of a group from the members of another group. This phenomenon is related to the concept of tribal society in that it is a precondition for members of a tribe to possess a strong feeling of identity for a true tribal society to form. The distinction between these two definitions for tribalism is an important one because, while tribal society no longer strictly exists in the western world, tribalism, by this second definition, is arguably undiminished. People have postulated that the human brain is hard-wired towards tribalism due to its evolutionary advantages."
In Kenya, "Tribalism" has taken on a much wider impact and has shaped the country's social, economic and political status quo. Could this stratification, however, have wrecked havoc on Kenya's future ? Has the so called "evolutionary advantage" been taken too far. Call +1-712-432-0900 to join the debate.

What will it take for America to stop being divided over race, and how can Black America realize more of the American Dream?
