Black Agenda or American Agenda?

Several of our listeners have suggested that there is a need to discuss whether there should be a call to action or Black Agenda to address the issues affecting our community and who should be ultimately responsible for this call to action.


What’s Your Take? Is there a need for what many have called a Black Agenda or should we move toward an American agenda inclusive of the needs of African Americans and other minorities?

What's The Next Step?

President Barack Obama declared Friday that a surface-to-air missile shot down a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 with almost 300 people aboard Thursday in Eastern Ukraine. The President noted that the rebels got weapons and training from Russia and had previously shot down a government aircraft, including a claimed strike of a fighter jet. Some have speculated that the strike could have been a Ukrainian military mistake or a Russian-assisted rebel attack.


What’s Your Take? Do you think Russian President Vladimir Putin will use his power to end the escalating violence in Ukraine? What steps if any should the US take in response to the escalating violence?

Summer is here!

A recent article reminds us that regardless of the color of your skin, you should always wear sunscreen when in direct sunlight. The sunblock should contain a minimum sun protection factor of 15. This will help to block ultraviolet rays from your skin. The article also suggests  SPF 30 or higher if you will be outdoors for an extended period of time.

What's Your Take?

More than half of all Americans are prohibited from donating organs to the unrelenting waiting list of dying patients. Typically, they are prohibited due to pre-existing conditions ranging from infectious disease to obesity. However, there are millions of healthy capable donors who are unnecessarily banned. Prisons nationwide have begun examining their organ donation policies in consideration of inmate donations to strangers where only family donations were possible before.


What’s Your Take? Should inmates be allowed to be organ donors?
