Justice or Else .. What? : The Case For & Against the Million Man March

It has been 20 years since the million man march landed on DC with a call to Black men to be accountable. Now Farrakhan is doing it again, but this time his message is different with a focus on economics.

But do we need another march? What happened in the community after 20 years as a direct result of that march?

And why are we asking a corrupt system for justice instead of taking it?

Or are these marches a powerful much needed reminder to ourselves of the power we have as a group?

The MadMen debate whether or not to get on the bus… Again. Join us.

Culture Vultures – Are Black Americans Misappropriating African Culture?

the revolution of the mind continues…

“Black America, please stop appropriating African clothing and tribal marks.” writes Zipporah Gene in a scathing editorial which asks…can Black people culturally appropriate one another?

Do African Americans insult the cultures, history and spiritual faiths of African tribes when they wear their marks patterns and religious symbols (and almost always int he wrong way).

The MadMen return tomorrow night with the debate of all debates. Have Black Americans been just as guilty of misappropriation when it comes to African culture or do Black Americans have the right to claim anything from the entire continent because it is the land of our ancestors?

White Jesus Doesn’t Care About Black People : A Look Into The Charleston Terror Attack

he revolution of the mind continues…

Since 1956, there have been 91 violent attacks on Black churches – innocent Black lives bombed, burned and gunned back into the dust

Thousands of Black people killed while praying / begging for help from a god fashioned in the very likeness of the people who seek the extermination of every Black soul off the face of the earth – simply for being Black

Charleston is not the first act of domestic terrorism levied against America’s Black populace. The MadMen take a look at America’s obsession with terrorizing Black lives, the role religion plays In it and why the powers that be refuse to call it what it is… Terrorism.

Little Boy Blue : the curious case of Kalief Browder

The revolution of the mind continues.

We only have one question:

Who is responsible for the death of Kalief Browder?

Kalief came back n to the public consciousness this week when the troubled youth committed suicide after battling demons created when he was unlawfully held on Riker’s Island for over THREE years – WITHOUT A TRIAL for a crime he did not commit.

Thrown in prison in the prime of his teenage years, Kalief suffered horrifying abuse from the inmates and guards alike and spent the majority of his time in the infamous prison in solitary confinement.  He was eventually released after his case came into the national spotlight, causing government officials to call for widespread changes to how prisoners are treated.

With donors paying his tuition, Kalief seemed to be on the right track when he was released, but continued to have psychotic episodes.

He succumbed to them and ended his short life.. unable to live with the damage done to him another day.

Who should go down for this?

Fruit of the Poisoned Tree : Black Men vs. the “deadbeat dad” Stereotype

the revolution of the mind continues….

The WYMS countdown to Father’s Day continues… The war on the Black man as a “deadbeat” father continues to wage psychological damage on our community even in the face of conflicting evidence.

Tonight we debate how the mindset changed… Was it feminism? Family court laws and the trap of court ordered child support? Or was it our own actions? Who do we put a case on… But more importantly how do we get back our image and our righteous minds?

Won’t be home? No problem. Text “WYMS” to 67000 and get the listen in number sent to your phone 5 minutes to showtime.

Hood Rules : Who Wears the Pants? (The Push to Deconstruct Gender Roles)

the revolution of the mind continues…

Amazon recently declared that children’s toys will no longer be separated by gender. No more trucks for boys or dolls for girls… Everyone plays with everything.

Which led us into a debate…

Are gender role assignments crucial to mental health and stability… Especially in communities of color?

Are gender “roles” even fair? Shouldn’t everyone assume whatever “role” they must to ensure life liberty and happiness?

Or are these “roles” the very glue that binds our society?

Interesting.
