Dear Black Community: Slipping into darkness...

10/28/2018
More
Please join us Sunday as we discuss a number of topics. Some whypipo are seriously slipping into darkness and attacking our communities. This has been a common occurrence in black communities and we weren't believed. However, it seems to be escalating and more targeted. We can no longer sit back and watch as this continues to happen. Some of you will say that we've seen times such as this before and made it through it. What about the people and families who were hurt, harmed and killed? Are...

Please join us as we discuss the Groveland Four with Carol Greenlee (daughter of wrongly convicted Charles Greenlee). Earnest Thomas, Charles Greenlee, Samuel Shepherd and Walter Irvin were accused of raping a 17-year-old white woman in Lake County, Florida in 1948. They were convicted of a crime, minus any evidence, by an all white jury. In November 1951, NAACP Special Counsel Thurgood Marshall had the death penalty verdicts overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court. The four men were...

Please join us as we discuss Christine Blasey Ford and the Senate hearing for Brett Kavanaugh. There's so much to unpack, that it's difficult to know where to begin. We will also discuss the very obvious display of white male privilege and entitlement. We will also contrast the difference between this hearing and the one for Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas. It's very important to understand the distinct difference between the two. White womanhood and Black womanhood are two very different...

Dear Black Church: White Supremacy in the Pulpit

9/23/2018
More
Please join us as we discuss the current state of the church. You have people leaving in droves, leadership openly rebelling against the Bible they profess to believe, pastors and leadership openly telling you to submit and obey the authority of deviants, pastors and leadership that are money hungry and on power trips, and so much more. When are you going to stand up and speak up? There is no way that you can convince me that you believe that this type of leadership is acceptable.

Dear White America: Caping for control

8/19/2018
More
Please join us as we discuss the aggrieved white men in America who feel that they are being discriminated against because of their gender and whiteness. Some of them believe that women & the black/brown people need to be put back in their place in the proper hierarchy. Also, they need to ensure that they keep their white dominance in the hierarchy of power and control. We can't have too many immigrants and refugees disrupting the balance. The mental gymnastics to justify and rationalize...

"Woke" Whypipo and their fragility.

Please join us as we discuss why some white progressives, moderates, liberals, and allies are problematic and complicit with white supremacy. When you attempt to explain why their silence or their encouragement of you being silent is violent, here comes the conditional support, tears, and accusations of you not being a team player or understanding the 'sacrifices' that they have made to just be your friend and 'be seen in public' standing by your side. The dial in number is 310-982-4273 and...

Please join us today as I try to play catch up and update you on a few things. You know how we do, I'm just going for it. What more evidence do you need that making moral arguments mean nothing to people who have a totally different definition of morality than yourself? What do you say when their white privilege means more to them than their God or holy book? How do you respond to the silent moderate, liberal, and progressive so called 'good' whites who remain silent in the face of the...

Please join us Sunday as we break down Kanye's latest sophistry. There is so much to catch up on. Reuter's took a poll that indicted that Black men support for Donald Trump doubled after Kanye announced his new ideaology of freethought. Let's examine that and more.

Please join us as we examine white on white crime again... Why are they so angry? Why are they killing themselves when they are worried about population decline? Why are they scapegoating the mentally ill? Why have they turned jails and prisons into mental health facilities? Why did they gut funding for mental health services? Why aren't they discussing the fact that they are allowing dangerous mentally ill people to purchase guns? Should we listen to anyone who has received money from the...

Please join us as we discuss the #MeToo movment and how it is overlooking voices and accounts the Black Community.

So many stories are out there and it's a deperately needed conversation.

Dear Black America: What's next?

Dear Black People: What's next? Do we fall into the same old rut and go along with the status quo because we were trained to do so? It's evident that our money and voting block is more important than they would care for us to realize. What's next? Do we continue to allow our very existence be dictated by people who truly believe that they know what's best for us and will make decisions accordingly? They name the problem and for odd reason, too many of you are eager to claim it. Why is that?...
