Being Gay On Maryland's Eastern Shore

Jimy, shared with us that the gay population is growing in Salisbury community. I had no idea there was a church in Worcester County that primarily consisted of gay persons, or there is a linguistic sub culture. Jimy said so.

There is no breakdown in the family structure, as a result of the gay lifestyle, says Jimy. Him and his mate has raised a child.

Homosexuality In the African American Community

This week's show (9/24) will address homosexuality in the African American Community.

Good Run ... Young Man

Gary "Man of the Future" Tucker, 27 years of age ran for office. His purpose ---- to bring the voice of the young to county government. Though he did not win, I wonder if his visable campaign was not a victory to young people all throughout the region. Gary has courage. Courage that is directed to build his community. Gary was my guest on this past week's Called2Action.

Gary talked about his experience, his joys and regrets. Gary alluded to the thought that he might do it again. Go Gary Go! 4 new years. 4 New Years.

Get Up! Stand Up! Stand Up For Your Rights!!!

Sandra Martin, former Democratic Central Committee member and Tracy Cottman, First African American female on the Pocomoke City Council were my guest on this week's Called2Action. In earlier times we weren't permitted to vote, then we were considered 3/5 of a human being, then when we were allowed to vote, there were voting impediments like poll taxes, literarcy test, etc. Today we find that our voter turnout is lowest of any minority group. The world will not stop because we do not participate, and when we don't participate, persons who may not have our best interest at heart may end up representing us on matters that effects us daily. Besides the likelihood of politicians listening to you if you have not voted is slim.

The ladies shared the political experience with the listening audience. Thanks ladies.

Walking the Political Line

Let's rally the troops to get out and make educated votes. As you may know, I have been waging a war against political complacency in the African American, (Af-Am) communities. Using the predominantly African American voting precinct in the county as an example, last election the voter turnout was at about 36%, which was relatively high, when compared to past voting patterns, (which is generally around 26%). If you compared that statistic to other non minority voting precincts in the county, it was "criminally" low. Case in point --- in one precinct the voter turnout was at 95%. On this week's radio program (Sept 10, 2006), we lay it on the line, and then we walk that line. I've encouraged the community to set as a goal a 72% voter turnout in the minority communities. I will continue to put forth that challenge. Join me on a new radio station, covering a much large audience, in the Clear Channel network. We will Walk the Political Line. Called2Action will now be covering parts of Maryland, Delaware and Virginia. See ya on the radio.
