Charles and Brandan kick off the official syndication show for ISSUES AFTER DARK hosted by Dion and Antoine every Tuesday – Friday Night.

Today’s topic: RACISM: 2010 STYLE. This show will be an explosive look into the changing dynamics of racism in America. Since the election of President Barack Obama it seems clear that racist thoughts have surfaced in blatant ways – or has it? The discussion will center around current legislation passed by the State of Arizona and whether the election of President Barack Obama was just a moment or a movement in American history.

Tonight’s guests include – Ricky Jones, Ph.D., Morris O’Kelly and Rev. Arnold Townsend.

Ricky Jones, Ph.D. – University of Louisville professor PAN AFRICAN STUDIES DEPARTMENT and Founder of the Center for Study of Crime and Justice in Black Communities. Dr. Jones will focus on varied topics including the election of President Barack Obama being a moment or a movement.

Morris O’Kelly – Graduate of Georgetown University and CEO of The Mo’Kelly Report. The Mo’Kelley Report is an entertainment journal with a political slant; published weekly at The Huffington Post and http://www.eurweb.com. It is meant to inform, infuse and incite meaningful discourse…as well as entertain. The Mo’Kelly Report is syndicated by Blogburst. For more on Mo’Kelly, visit http://mokellyreport.wordpress.com. Mo’Kelly can be reached at mrmokelly@gmail.com and he welcomes all commentary. Mr. O’Kelly will focus on a variety of issues regarding racism in the entertainment field, as well as, how Young America is handling the nuances of today’s racial matters.

Rev. Arnold Townsend – Vice President of the NAACP San Francisco Branch, former consultant to the LAW Offices of Willie L. Brown Jr., former staff for National Committee Against Discrimination in Housing and Co-Pastor of Rhema Word Christian Fellowship, SF/Daly City. Rev. Townsend will focus on the need for a national conversation regarding the lingering effects of racism via slavery on the descendants of slaves AND the descendants of slave masters. His contention is that many seek to understand why the descendents of slaves can not “move on”, yet do not equally explore the reasons descendants of slave masters likewise can not do so.

***RMG’S TERRITORY EXPANDING***

On Monday, May 3, 2010 RELIGAZINE MEDIA GROUP will celebrate 1 year of broadcasting on Northern California’s “Spirit of the Bay” AM1100 KFAX. RMG’s CEO, Dion Evans shared, “It is incredible to me how God uses people, who do not qualify by man’s standards, to impact the world. I believe God’s Word and commission for my life and now am walking in HIS purpose.”

To celebrate this historical year, RMG will launch itself into 10 new radio markets spanning over 8 new States. The following Radio Stations, owned by Wilkins Communications, will air the hit radio program – ISSUES AFTER DARK – Monday through Friday – LIVE: WNVY AM1070 (Pensacola, FL), WCPC AM940 (Tupelo, MS), WITK AM1550 (Wilkes-Barre/Scanton, PA), WYYC AM1250 (York, PA), WIJD AM1270 (Mobile, AL), WLMR AM1450 (Chattanooga, TN), WSKY AM1230 (Asheville, PA), WFAM AM1050 (Augusta, GA), KCNW AM1380 (Kansas City, KC), and KXKS AM1190 (Albuquerque, NM).

Antoine Miller, co-Host of ISSUES AFTER DARK, stated, “The expansion of the RMG radio broadcast is a prayer answered, first – for radio ministry and second – the enlarging of territory. Personally, this is a prayer answered that had laid dormant for 16 years. I’ve learned that remaining faithful to God will result in God’s rewards.”

Charles Cole III, RELIGAZINE Media Group radio personality for THE COLE AND B-RICH SHOW, stated, “I am really excited! I believe our message is going to reach a group of people who really need to be reached. We are going to rock it!”

Brandan Richardson, On-Air radio personality for the COLE AND B-RICH SHOW, stated, “This is testament to what God is doing and God knows what HE wants done.

If our bodies are temples, then why do we enjoy defiling them?

April 3, 2010

If our bodies are temples, then why do we enjoy defiling them?

Imagine it’s Sunday and you are in the middle of morning worship service. You look to your left then look to your right observing everyone in the sanctuary. Now I have a few questions for you and be real: How many of those people can you tell from just looking at them that if they had to run a mile in under 12 minutes to save their lives you would be attending their funeral next week? How many people are you sitting next to that you can STILL smell the cigarette that they smoked right before they came in for service? How many visible tattoos do you see? I think it’s safe to say that there are more than a few people in your church that fall into either one of these categories, if not all three. Read more…

Why Do Youth Abuse Drugs?

March 19, 2010

So I’m on my computer surfing the web recently when I stumble across an article on cnn.com that caught my attention. Apparently, 12-year-olds are abusing inhalants more than marijuana, hallucinogens, and cocaine combined. (Feel free to read it here) After taking a moment to digest this information, I came to the conclusion that this makes a lot of sense if you think about it. When you consider that most inhalants are easily accessible to 12-year-olds around their homes and are way more cost effective than buying marijuana or cocaine, you can’t really be that surprised. Back when I was in high school, I definitely remember a number of classmates that were notorious weed-heads so youth drug abuse is nothing new to me. But for the first time I began to wonder what exactly possesses 12-year-olds to start doing drugs in the first place? Read more…

Cole’s Take on Current Events

March 11, 2010

College Bound!

Um…Mainstream Media is Really Letting Me Down

So here’s the deal.  The Cole & B-Rich show wanted to try things a little differently for the next show.  We decided to just pull our topics out of the headlines and dig right in.  We enjoy talking about issues that “Christian” talk shows won’t discuss.  So as I’m perusing the headlines on March 10, 2010 at my local Starbucks (my hang-out) I was really disappointed.  I hit up the usual suspects: CNN, MSNBC, Yahoo!, and Google.  Nothing really caught me, and I continuously found myself asking, “Why is this news?” I did run into a story about the Vatican’s exorcist blaming the recent rash of sexual abuse and pedophilia which only left me shaking my head.  (Feel free to read it here) Nope, I’ll leave that topic to my mentors.

So then I went into my next level of media.  My trusted posts and blogs that tend to have the topics that I feel inform me on what I need to know.  Those include The Huffington Post, The BBC (I enjoy what’s going on outside of The States), and Allhiphop.com just because I’m a hip-hop head.  Those offered something, but there still wasn’t much substance so I’m just going to run through some of what I ran across and what I should have seen.
