Guess Who's Coming to Radio??!!
A show with a goal to address the sociopolitical issues pertaining to Afrikan peoples in this country (black people), from a younger person's perspective.

It will feature book highlights, guests who contribute to pro-activity in their respective communities and an opportunity for the listening community to become involved in conversations, by calling in. Let's liberate our minds through the airwaves!!
this is the interview that appeared on the 20 august episode of 'guess who's coming to radio??!! with aphrodite jones, author of the book 'michael jackson conspiracy'. she has appeared on programs such as: america's most wanted, the CBS early show, geraldo at large, inside edition, montel wiliams, medical detectives and the o'reilly factor.
on 'michael jackson conspiracy' (from aphroditejones.com):
"In June 2005, when Aphrodite Jones made her last appearance on The O’Reilly Factor related to the Michael Jackson trial, she experienced a striking moment of clarity:
"As I made one of my last public comments on the case,” she remembers, “I realized that I had become one of the media bunch who had predetermined the outcome of the trial, wrongly. Many people around me were so sure of Jackson’s guilt. Many reporters had slanted TV and radio coverage to suit the prosecution, and I was one of those folks who had followed that dangerous trend.”
Now, in a new book, Michael Jackson Conspiracy, Jones is setting the record straight. Aphrodite Jones's most daring book ever examines the case against the world's No. 1 entertainer: Michael Jackson.
Inspired by Jones's courageous writing, Thomas A. Mesereau, Jr., Jackson's high profile attorney, has written a powerful foreword for Michael Jackson Conspiracy.
Under the influence of media, the entire world has reached judgments about Jackson. The mainstream media report about him with an implicit judgment, while tabloid media write about him with an explicit judgment. In the face of this barrage of judgment, the resulting perceptions about Jackson have become aligned -- against him. It has become impossible for the public to reconcile its admiration for Jackson's genius musical and artistic talent with the harsh judgments against him. As a result of these seemingly irreconcilable views, it has become easier to ignore the good and focus on the bad.
For years now, we have been duped into believing that there has been only one side to a coin.
With the kind of behind-the-scenes insights that you have come to expect from Aphrodite Jones, Michael Jackson Conspiracy will shock you. Jones provides a fresh look at the man who has been at the center of so much success -- and controversy.
What emerges from Michael Jackson Conspiracy is an image of the vulnerability of the most powerful entertainer in the world.
All of the myths you have been lead to believe will be shattered.
Everything you have come to know about Jackson will be upturned after you read Michael Jackson Conspiracy.
A book which will forever influence the way trials are reported, Michael Jackson Conspiracy will also move you with emotion. And it will help you complete the picture of the most fascinating entertainer in the world. "

this evening we spoke with min. paul scott; we also had shaheed and tunisia haamid!
here are some links of things we spoke about during the show, and more... there are a lot of links, but hopefully they will be educational for you, and you will be able to move further in your journey and dig deeper and share with others what you've learned:
(note: part of the original bill which included the 'assault weapons ban' also included a 'violence against women' segment. interestingly, as they move to push the assault weapons ban they let the 'violence against women' act die)
(note: even if you don't agree with the above piece, you have to ask yourself why the inconsistencies in reporting on this shooting have largely gone unanswered)
here's some platinum and other (older and newer) news regarding the south african miners, etc.:
some history on the older assault weapons ban bill:
and some information on the omnibus bill current vice president joe biden drafted (which was a precursor to the patriot act):
and... are armed police or guards a response to the school shootings, especially after all the video evidence of police abusing their power and physically abusing children who have been late to class or were deemed 'hyperactive'?
