Host of Black in Blues Podcast, Dale Peters joins me to discuss the importance of police officers achieving their education. Research demonstrates that officers who attain their bachelor's degree, fair much better than their counterparts. With so much going on with reform ideas, officers should take advantage of educational opportunities.

Education is vitally important to the progress of any people and nation. Unfortunately many people, in particular, school age student have faced discrimination and racism. The curriculum's, and administrations have sometimes been outright racist or failed to highlight contributions made by members of minority groups. This causes pain and a disconnect between the school system and the communities who are looking to for healing. Ms. Sharla Stevens is healing the harm that racism has caused.

There is so much more than African Americans and others desire from their Congressional leaders. And all they can ever manage to do is raise taxes and items that benefit the rich and corporations. No police reform, no anti-lynching law, still problems at the border, no consensus on how to investigate Jan 6, and so on and so on.

Texas recently passed a law allowing citizens to carry firearms without a permit. Lawmakers based the law on the 2nd Amendment, but was that amendment meant for everyone? Should citizens be allowed to carry a weapon on their hip with proper training and gun safety knowledge? Lets' discuss.

The Black church has always been a beacon and influencing force within the Black community. Considering the current climate within law enforcement many people are looking for the church to help sooth the wounds and get answers. But where does hip hop culture fit in? Growing up I was told that to have love for this world was to be at war with or hate what Christianity stood for. My good friend Stacey Jones has written a book about pastoring hip hip church and keeping the congregants in line with christian teaching.
