LA Leaders Want R Kelly Removed From iHeart Radio Stations

On the heels of the polarizing Lifetime docuseries Surviving R. Kelly, Los Angeles activists are renewing their efforts to have R Kelly removed from local airwaves. Holding a press conference in front of 102.3 KJLH on Monday, Project Islamic Hope President Najee Ali and Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson implored iHeart Radio-owned stations to follow the lead of Stevie Wonder, who owns KJLH, to not play his music in any capacity. “We are here at KJLH radio to commend Stevie Wonder and the owner of the station and station management for banning R. Kelly’s music on the airwaves. Now we want iHeartRadio and Radio One to follow suit,” said Ali. “It…

Let’s Keep The Guns and Get Rid of the People

A couple of centuries ago, a bunch of guys huddled up and decided to contrive a set of rules that would make life seemingly fairer and happier for all parties involved. This became what we know today as the United States Constitution. More than 200 years later, after drastic, almost otherworldly social changes have taken place in society, modern man is expected to abide by this archaic rulebook, and it’s causing disorientation. Confusion. Specifically speaking, we’ve become our own pistol-packin, gat-toting, worst enemy, and this will likely never change. For further illustration; according to a report by the AJM, “Americans are 10 times more likely to be killed by guns” than people in similar countries….

Congresswoman Waters’ Statement on Las Vegas Shooting

Congresswoman Waters’ Statement on Las Vegas Shooting WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43), Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee, released a statement following the tragic shooting near the Mandalay Bay Casino in Las Vegas that claimed at least 59 innocent lives and injured more than 500 people: “Like so many across the country, I woke up this morning to the horrific news that our nation had endured yet another act of senseless violence, resulting in the loss of at least 59 innocent lives and leaving more than 500 people injured. This shooting is a painful reminder of just how far we must go to root out acts of mass violence in our…

Is ‘Black Lives Matter’ a Terrorist Group? 906 People Think So

In January of 2017, a petition was created to label the Black Lives Matter movement a terrorist organization. To many, especially those that know reality from fiction, this is ridiculous. BLM was engineered as a reaction to the treatment people of color (not just Blacks, because that would be racist) by law enforcement nationwide. Any aggression, theoretically, could be perceived as a reaction to events that transpired before some of us were even born, and could technically be deemed self defense. Black Lives Matter was, and still is, a call to proverbial arms, a social fog horn, a figurative flare launched skyward to illuminate the hate, intolerance, and injustice that exists yet went goes largely…

Is Donald Trump Cleaning Up Barack Obama’s Mess?

When Barack Hussein Obama was inaugurated as the 44th President of the United States, a distinct level of peace and calm abruptly covered the country. I remember specifically going out into the world the next day, and everybody, of all makes and models, greeted me with a smile. It really felt like America – as a whole – had turned a cultural corner and finally embraced its diversity. Particularly speaking, we elected someone other than a white man for president. For lack of a better term to use, that was an extremely progressive move. Obama gave us eight years, and a fist full of hopes and dreams for the future. Many may not have agreed…

Kenneka Jenkins: Is Social Media Killing Our Babies? (Opinion)

Sunday, September 10, 2017 – in a hotel in Rosemont, Illinois – 19 year old Kenneka Jenkins’ body was found in a freezer. The young woman had gone out with some friends to attend a party the night before. In a bizarre chain of events that has yet to completely unfold, Kenneka wound up inside a freezer, dead, while her so-called friends had possession of her purse, cell phone, and mother’s car after the party. They claimed that could not find her. Obviously, Kenneka’s mother is devastated by the loss, but seems equally as devastated by the lack of information surrounding the death of her daughter. As any parent would be. Should be. The hardest…
