It seems as if every month a new old movie is coming out. The 3rd remake of this or part 9 of that. In an era with so many technological advances it seems there are no new ideas or creativity in entertainment. Are we at a loss for new ideas or are we being handed the same message and programming? What does this say about what we consume and are ent…
 
In this era of click bait and soundbites any off hand comment can be taken out of context. Someone says something and the world feels the need to respond. But what about when it's not out of context? Why can't we seem to just let people believe what they believe? How can we claim to fight for the freedom to be heard yet seem to attack people and id…
 
We're back with special guest and author Khalil Ferguson! We hear the phrase, "seat at the table" but what value does that really bring and what about the intentions of those invited and doing the inviting? With the community constantly getting distracted by every passing fad is it unreasonable to make moves for ourselves because we no longer belie…
 
For years now America has campaigned the need for stricter immigration practices and the importance of being on alert for suspected terrorists threats. The US has banned travel into the States from certain countries, ICE has been snatching up people, separating families and detaining children and throughout all this there have been over 250 mass sh…
 
In the 80s & 90's we had music, television shows & movies that showed positive representations that inspired many to get married, go to college, start careers, etc. With most of those examples gone, we're seeing the result play out in real life. We hear the phrase "Black Community" but is it really a "community" when there's no ownership, defined c…
 
We just recently had America celebrate its day of independence. The day the Declaration of Independence was signed July 4th 1776. A document that states that "...all men are created equal..." yet every individual who signed it owned slaves. That being said is this a day ADOS should be celebrating? Why isn't Juneteenth a National holiday or at least…
 
As the subject of reparations for ADOS makes its way into the conversation and the question posed to potential presidential candidates in 2020, the nation has been voicing its opinion. With polls showing nearly 60% of the US opposed to paying descendants of slavery reparations, what does that say about how ADOS are viewed as opposed to other groups…
 
Growing up we had images of doing for self, "making it" meant moving to that deluxe apartment in the sky. Looking now at the state of our schools, communities and the effects of gentrification was that the move? With one great display of giving back performed at a graduation ceremony this year, will that be a call to action or just a 2019 footnote?…
 
Our environment is crucial in whatever it is we're trying to create. Being surrounded by good people in healthy, productive relationships is ideal, but what happens when that's not the case? What do we do when the current culture is "Money Over Everything" & "I Got Mine, You Get Yours"? How do we build? How do we change culture or does the culture …
 
The death of rapper, family man, entrepreneur and community leader Nipsy Hussle has been met with an incredible show of love and respect across the globe. His message of ownership and family, along with his music has spread greatly since he passed. Why do we wait until people are gone to show our love & support? With so many theories on why he was …
 
Director Jordan Peele's new movie "US" has been met with mixed interpretations, criticisms and views but its theme of having two completely opposite ways of seeing the same world can be universally understood. Something as simple as identifying by gender before race or sexual orientation before faith can lead to us having night and day experiences …
 
After the death of Stephon Clark by law enforcement in Sacramento, California the community waited for nearly a year to hear if charges were going to be brought up against the officers involved. Instead D.A. Anne Schubert held an hour long press conference addressing Stephon Clark, his relationship, family & mental state. No charges were brought ag…
 
With so many celebrities in the news for all of the wrong reasons, is there a line we draw as a community? Is there a point where we can no longer overlook what they've done wrong because of the love we have for their talent? Can we separate the person from the artist and still listen to their music, see their movies or watch their games even thoug…
 
It seems like every other day there is a new incident that enrages us that seems to go away just as quickly. Whether it be treatment in a particular store or establishment or belittlement by way of "jokes" or mockery, we get upset, scream "boycott this" and there seems to be no follow through. We criticize those who don't participate in our anger b…
 
Separating the individual from their talent is a problem this world faces everyday. Loving someone for an amazing ability or skill then finding out their character doesn't align with their level of talent is hard for many. In America nearly 1 out of 4 women have been sexually abused by the age of 18. A number most believe to be higher because many …
 
In our society we're told to do "whatever it takes" to support our families, handle our responsibilities and to make something of ourselves. But how far is too far? Is it "selling out" to conform in order to keep the lights on? When is it a case of pride vs ego? What responsibilities do we have to a culture that may not be able to provide the same …
 
There are so many issues being discussed and fought over; education, law enforcement, politics etc but in America all roads lead to money. In order to make changes in the community we have to get past our feelings and get down to business. Special guest Khalil Ferguson helps us breakdown some history, business & moving forward!Listen/Comment/Share/…
 
Music has always been used to influence sales, mood and of course culture. It's why we have "fight songs", anthems, even that first song played at our wedding. But what about the negative influence it can have on our young people? When artists not only fail to take responsibility, but build and base their careers off of negative and in some cases c…
 
The phrase, "If you don't vote, you don't have a right to complain" gets used often but is that our only voice? And if so, is it enough? With groups with low voter turnout yet economic growth & community empowerment what other methods should we look in to? When incidents like Jemel Roberson, Tamir Rice & others happen what do we say to those who ha…
 
It's been said that America is the best at branding and marketing. This country is amazing at presenting what it wants and how it wants it to be seen. But when the product doesn't match the commercial the outcome is usually unhappy customers. Stereotypes, false narratives and frustration...the PR of the USA! Listen/Comment/Share/Subscribe and Say S…
 
Married men typically live longer than single men primarily because wives keep men on track for appointments, medications, etc. We men benefit from their love and attention but how many of us truly reciprocate? Are we doing our part? Are we making sure they're healthy, protected and safe?Listen/Comment/Share and Say Something!!!…
 
We live in a society where our celebrities are viewed as cultural representatives. That they in some way speak for the group. But what about when they're given the mic and don't represent? Or worse when things happen and they say nothing at all? We've got special guests Joshua Robinson & Taylor McClure of the Sacramento City Black Student Union dis…
 
It seems as if everyday we turn on the news and see one prominent figure after another involved in some form of sexual misconduct or abuse. We like to say it's famous people or individuals in position of power, but is it more of a case of societal culture? In the midst of this #MeToo movement, no one is saying abuse is ok but there are a lot of peo…
 
With more and more incidents of law enforcement dealing with civilians and having fatal outcomes questions continue to arise. Humans are filled with insecurities, doubts, conflicts & trauma. Those things lead to people making questionable decisions, in some cases out of their character...doesn't that apply to officers too?Listen/Comment/Share and S…

Listen/Comment/Share and Say Something!By Say Something w/ Jermaine Morris & Berry Accius
 
I think it's safe to say that we all believe in "free thinking" but at what point or does it at all become dangerous? Do you lose your ability to speak your mind when more people are listening? Does there need to be a form of policing within the community for people who say/do destructive things and where do we draw the line? And who do we trust to…
 
With incident after incident being reported in the news on how the sheer presence of Black people requires a law enforcement presence in businesses across the country, in many cases where no crime was committed, is it time to shift our thinking from these being "isolated incidents" to a more common way of thinking? As "Driving While Black" has turn…
 
As the protests, gatherings and meetings continue in Sacramento after the shooting of unarmed Stephon Clark by law enforcement officers, the city and nation has had to have real conversations on how Black Americans are being policed. With calls for reform and even a complete overhaul of the law enforcement system, how real is that when such a large…
 
In the wake of another officer involved shooting of an unarmed man in Sacramento, CA what does the case and tragedy of Stephon Clark's death say about the way Black people are being policed? A suspected vandalism charge was met with 20 bullets from law enforcement. Will this be just another hashtag or will some changes in police procedure be made? …
 
As Florida legislators move closer to arming teachers, at the same time in 3 different states teachers have discharged weapons on school campuses even leading to injury. How will this make our kids safe? With Florida being a "Stand Your Ground" state will a teacher be justified in shooting an unarmed student? With so many cases of inappropriate beh…
 
On pace for a billion dollar box office Marvel's "Black Panther" has reached global success and started a movement of Afrocentric pride and attention. Is this new found interest in African culture/traditions just for the moment or just the beginning? Will the concept of a "Do For Self" nation carry over? With so many gravitating to the character of…
 
From a lost love to a lost job, major events to daily losses we all take L's. In a society that tells you to "get over it" many of us keep the pain in. Sometimes to avoid expected scrutiny, sometimes because we just don't know how to process it. Drugs, alcohol, violence, depression etc, all show up as ways to cope and deal with what this world thro…
 
"Home is where the heart is." A phrase used for years but does it still apply? Is home a place of peace, protection, stability? With an increasing divorce rate, an economy that demands more weekly work hours and a technological age that sends more and more adults back to school how much heart is actually at home? Are our children seeing enough love…
 
In America your child is statistically far more likely to be exploited and abused by someone who either lives at or was let in to the home. With predators seemingly everywhere how do we protect our babies? Failure to respond to an accusation in the workplace can lead to termination but what about when the parent doesn't act? Have we become so accus…
 
The first episode of 2018! It's a brand new year starting with some familiar issues. In the news we have more allegations of sexual misconduct from our stars, racially insensitive ads, arguments within the community all while this administration keeps "doing what it do". Are we going to usher in this new year with our old ways? Listen/Comment/Share…
 
Today is known as the "Information age"; history, news, sports even learning a foreign language can all be done by pressing a button on our cell phones. With so much access to everything have we been taking it for granted? Recently with the removals of news programs, personalities and even networks that focus their info on the "Black" community alo…
 
With new policies coming in to place in January, things like the legalization of marijuana and regulations when it comes to gun control that were once seen as wrong are suddenly being seen as right. We have prisons filled with people who were convicted for things that are no longer crimes, yet not being released. In a nation where the moral compass…
 
Dictionary.com named "complicit" as 2017's word of the year. "Involved with others in an illegal activity or wrongdoing". With so many accusations of sexual misconduct dating back decades, where were all of these people THEN as they say they've known for years NOW? From conveniently leaving a room, person or even a nation vulnerable and exposed, to…
 
We've all heard things like, "everyone makes mistakes", "they used poor judgement", even "it's just a phase" but what happens when it's not a mistake or a phase and it's now the norm? When bad decisions have become common practice and things that were once shamed are now celebrated? Or worse...go unnoticed... When we've created an environment and a…
 
It seems like every day there is a brand new scandal, allegation or indictment in the news. Once beloved stars of film, music, tv, etc, are now the focus of investigations for some of the most heinous acts. It seems like an entire culture has been created and maintained by "looking the other way". When we have to face the reality of our stars, reco…
 
This episode we've got special guest former NFL Linebacker Cincinnati Bengal Adrian "Maddbacker" Ross with us as we break down the current state of the NFL, players using their platform and the way they're being cultivated from college. Is an athlete anymore "privileged" to have their job than anyone else? We don't tell our accountants, doctors, or…
 
"If you're not cheating...you're not trying." In a society that looks down on losing more than cheating what incentive is there to "Do The Right Thing?" We even have some that move away from the community to be closer to "the winning team". In a system where "winning isn't everything, it's the only thing" are they wrong? Do the ends justify the mea…
 
The world has been watching as this Kaepernick vs the NFL saga unfolds, a man who has paid for a movement with his career. Standing up for people he may not know for benefits he won't receive...now this week has been filled with the voices of our women saying how they've been hurt and affected by sexual assault coming together under the phrase #MeT…
 
50 years after Jackie Robinson broke the color lines of professional baseball many of the slurs thrown at him, racial tensions and divided ideologies America faced then are still here in 2017! NFL owners are threatening to bench players who kneel for the flag, the NBA coming out saying protests won't be tolerated, even ESPN journalists being suspen…
 
In a nation driven by "fear/safe" logic, with all of the tragedies and issues we're facing today at what point do we need to saved from ourselves? With proposed felony registrations, mandatory DNA submissions, strict gun regulations, tighter police involvement, etc at what point and to what extent are we willing to trade in our civil liberties to b…
 
A statement that began with Kaepernick has now made international headlines even to the point of drawing criticisms from the current president. Taking a knee was started to draw attention to the disproportionate way black/brown Americans are treated by law enforcement & now it's become a battle over freedom of speech and patriotism. With a constant…
 
We've all heard the phrase, "Once a cheater, always a cheater" or "a leopard can't change its spots" is that true? Are our problematic behaviors something we can evolve out of or is it simply a matter of time before they revolve back around and show themselves? Listen/comment/share and Say Something!…
