Its a pain in my heart to read diferent discussions, and posts
from some of you who is nothing but HOT AIR. Men bashers
do not have a chance bashing all men, and that's only leaving
room for a counterattack. Another area that we are always
b***hing about is Black on Black crime, but we are always try
to avoiding the topics that concerns everyday life in the Black
communities of America, and getting or giving oral sex seem
to be more important according to some… Continue

African-Americans Making History Long Before Barack Obama Decided to Run for President
When Barack Obama decided to make a bid for the highest office in the United States he was making history to this generations time when in fact there are 5 known presidents who are in fact African-American because of their ancestry. Author J.A. Rogers published a book in 1965 titled The 5 Negro Presidents: According to What White People Said They Were. This was a pamphlet sized book with the image… Continue
If you tuned into my Talking Smooth Jazz show on Sunday, Aug. 24th, to hear my interview with Brian Culbertson and Maurice White (my surprise for Brian and the listeners), fifteen minutes into the show and while I was talking to Maurice, the BTR phone lines went down and we were not able to reconnect. Needless to say, I was very disappointed. However, Brian called me and agreed to a pre-recorded interview that will air Wednesday, August 27 at 7:00pm/PDT on Blogtalkradio.com. Unfortunately, I… Continue

Whether you're a newly minted blogger or a relative old-timer, you've been seeing more and more stories pop up every day about bloggers getting in trouble for what they post.
Like all journalists and publishers, bloggers sometimes publish information that other people don't want published. You might, for example, publish something that someone considers defamatory, republish an AP news story that's under copyright, or write a lengthy piece detailing the alleged crimes of a candidate… Continue
Four people are being held in Denver, Colorado after a man named Tharin Gartrell was stopped for driving erratically. After police searched his rented van they discovered two high powered rifles, a bulletproof vest, camouflage clothing, ammunition, two-way radios, fake licenses and crystal meth. While it is not clear how the information was obtained, police then arrested another man Nathan Johnson at a Denver hotel who is reportedly an associate of Gartrells.
So the guessing game is over and the Obama campaign has turned another corner with the announcement that Senator Joseph Biden (D-Del) will fill the Vice Presidential spot on the Democratic ticket. How Clinton supporters will react remains to be seen with rumors suggesting they may try to nominate Hillary Clinton at the upcoming Democratic… Continue

I have heard it said, as I am sure you have also, that "Now is the time to fight!" Well, my comrades, that is not the whole truth. You see, the fight has always been here. The fight has been in the homes of every person alive, at the check out lane, at the work place, at the school houses and churches, at the unenmployment lines and welfare offices across the country, the fight has been against us. The weapons used have been the destruction of workers… Continue

It also allows black BTR hosts to submit blogs for… Continue

What does Watermelon Basketballs and Gold Chains have to do with deodorant? The Black Talk Media Project is asking that question. We expected suspected racist white people to defend the Old Spice commercial which aired during the NBA Finals last night but while not surprising, African-AMERICANS are failing to recognize the racial undertones of the not only the commercial but its placement.
In political news, a recent SCOTUS case resulted in the further erosion of so-called "civil rights". The US Supreme Court has ruled in a 5-4 decision in the case Salinas v. Texas, that your right to remain silent can be used against you in a criminal trial should you be charged with the crime for which you are being questioned by police. Texas Prosecutors in the case argued that Salinas’ silence during a police interview prior to his arrest was a “very important piece of evidence” and that only a guilty person would have remained silent when questioned about his connection to a crime. Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the majority opinion that Salinas “was required to assert the privilege in order to benefit from it,” even though a person questioned while under arrest could not have his silence used against him.
Political Prisoner Radio had an opportunity to catch up with the director of Prison Radio, Noelle Hanrahan. She is known most for her radio work with political prisoner and former Death Row member Mumia Abu Jamal in helping him to record and distribute his political commentaries from behind bars. She also participated in the production of the independent film "Long Distance Revolutionary: A Journey with Mumia Abu-Jamal" which is now available on DVD after a successful run in select theaters. We will also get into the repression of Black revolutionary politics in mainstream media.
After the interview we will share some of the latest events and alerts related to political prisoners.
Black Autonomy Federation Radio will examine some serious issues facing the Black community today in the current economic and political climate in the United States.
I.) Food Security and being removed from food-stamps. Sequester Obama government cutbacks
II). 50% of the Homeless in America are Black!
III). Moving from obedience to Rebellion and Insurrection
Tonight we will be joined by Mr. J. Jondhi Harrell and Mr. Glenn Davis from "Decarcerate PA" which back in May held a march in Pennsylvania to demand a people's budget that invests in communities and not prisons. Judging from the participation in the march, it was successful in raising public awareness about 21st Century Slavery and Human Trafficking.
"Decarcerate PA is a grassroots campaign working to end mass incarceration in Pennsylvania. We demand that PA stop building prisons, reduce the prison population, and reinvest money in our communities."
After we speak with Mr. Harrell and Mr. Davis we will share some of the latest news related to 21st Century Slave and Human Trafficking and open the phone lines for a general discussion on the issue.
World Star Hip-Hop has built a media platform that has become a clearinghouse for the worst of “Urban America” according to a recent Change.org petition created by Supreme Understanding of Supreme Design Publishing.
The petition says, "There are some things that we all should know are wrong. Things like sexually exploiting minors or the mentally ill. The administrators of WorldStarHipHop.com apparently do not share these standards of human decency."
Supreme Understanding will join us tonight along with Scotty Reid of the Black Talk Media Project and members of the Militant Mind Movement on Militant Minded Radio to discuss this issue and why the Black community should be involved in this campaign to stop the exploitation of our most vulnerable people.
DOWNLOAD MP3 It looks like the US could get pulled into another non-declared war launched by the executive branch that could cost the American tax payers billions in a no win situation for the American people. Members of the Obama administration have been pushing language with the help of pro-war members of the Senate that sounds strikingly similar to that used to justify invading Iraq, which we now know were lies about weapons of mass destruction and mushroom clouds. CIA analyst Ray McGovern compared it to President Bush's Axis of Evil Speech to congress.
Former French foreign minister Roland Dumas in a recent interview with French Parliamentary TV network, LCP that Britain had been planning a war against Syria some two years before the unrest broke out in the Arab country.
“I’m going to tell you something. I was in England two years before the violence in Syria on other business. I met with top British officials, who confessed to me that they were preparing something in Syria, this was in Britain not in America. Britain was organizing an invasion of rebels into Syria. They even asked me, although I was no longer minister for foreign affairs, if I would like to participate.” - Roland Dumas
Last night ABC reported news about 711 store franchise owners running a human trafficking/slavery scheme forcing workers to work for very little pay and keeping them locked up and/or scared of being deported back to Pakistan because their visas had expired. However, if this was able to go on so long involving people from a country the US is waging war in with drone strikes, how effective is the government's domestic spying programs?
