Just Stuff:

When I interviewed Darlene Donloe for today’s show, I wanted to play a song that would be approriate so I went to trusty You Tube and put the name “Darlene” in the search box.  For the next hour, I listened to songs by Darlene Love who was inducted just this year into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  This beautiful woman’s voice was in my head from so many years past, but I never heard her name.

We usually post the topic the Thursday before the program, but we thought we would start early this week.

Mikki Taylor

Darlene Donloe interviews Mikki Taylor, author of the new Book Commander in Chic.  We last saw her at the Essence Music Festival the July 4 weekend in New Orleans.  She is a dynamo.

Mikki Taylor's New Book

Our cover story is about Child Sexual Abuse.  The Penn State fiasco shines the light on this horrific life changing practice.  Read the bottom of the last post to see the research I have uncovered this far.  All over the black blogosphere, there are allegations that the majority of the boys were black, which caused us here at SML to try and find experts to want parents how to prevent contact with a pedophile for their own children.

Yes, from the UK.Until then, school yourself.  Please start with this blog, written by an Indian woman  in the  UK:

More later.

Akuyoe Graham

Award-winning actor/author/educator Akuyoe Graham possesses the ability to sit with society’s outcasts and rapidly guide them to a life-changing, self-discovery experience.

She has widely performed her highly acclaimed one-woman play, Spirit Awakening.  Graham takes audiences on her odyssey of self-discovery – from tribal princess in her native Ghana, to British schoolgirl, to socialite-wannabe in New York, and finally back to her original African heritage and deeper spiritual self.

Whether in a prison classroom with a dozen inmates – or on stage before hundreds of students or regular playgoers – Graham’s archetypal journey electrifies audiences and inspires them to look beneath their own social masks to their unchanging inner essence.

Graham is planning to take a group of her graduates to Ghana to share their love and faith in the future with the country’s orphaned children. The trip will be financed by her Spirit Awakening Foundation, through the generosity of individual donors and private organizations.

Graham has appeared in numerous television shows including: God Bless The Child, Taken Away, The Doctor, Picket Fences, Chicago Hope, General Hospital, City of Angels and more. She also appeared in the film, American Pie.

Graham is the author of the best-selling book, “The Little Book of Transformation/7 days to a brand new you.”

Akuyoe founded the Spirit Awakening Foundation will present its 4th Annual Voices of the Unheard: Epiphany benefit performance at 3 p.m., Sat., Dec. 3, at The Lost Studio Theatre, 130 S. La Brea Ave, 2nd floor in Los Angeles.

I started my research on my Facebook Page.  You can click the link to download the Grand Jury report AND READ IT FOR YOURSELF.

Penn State:  Rape, Murder and Race.  Read it for yourself.

Are Black Boys at the Center of this horrendous story?

Grand jury report in Penn State child sex case
    • Isidra Person-LynnThe murder part: Ray Gricar served as the district attorney for Pennsylvania’s Centre County in 1998 when Sandusky was accused of sexually abusing several boys. After an extensive investigation, which included testimony by two law enforcement officers that they had overheard Sandusky admitting to showering with multiple young boys, Gricar decided no criminal charges would be filed, according to recent court documents. Sandusky retired the next year.Then, in April 2005, Gricar disappeared. His car and laptop were found but the hard drive was missing. When it was recovered it was damaged beyond repair.

    • Isidra Person-LynnThe race part: I read Earl Ofari’s article questioning if race was at the crux of why this had been covered up so long. Apparently, he wrote, the majority of the molested youth were African American. I have looked for reports in the mainstream media and have found none. A mother of Victim 1 was interviewed but her face and voice were altered. But Ofari is right that “underprivileged” has always been a buzz word for our children. The plot thickens.

    • Sybil McMillerI’m glad u posted this… but in this case I wish facebook would have a “dis-like” button!!! Shame on PSU!

    • Tim PersonVery true.cuz very.sad.

      Yesterday at 8:19am ·
    • Isidra Person-LynnAt first, I almost felt sorry for Joe Paterno, ending a storied career like this because of what some other man did. But who leaves any man alone with a child after witnessing him doing all sorts of dastardly anal and oral things? The whistle blower was right to report it, but at the least he could have rescued that one child. But then it is easy to say if it wasn’t you and you did not see YOUR hero doing such things. Stay Tuned.

    • Isidra Person-LynnTwitter is abuzz if you search Sandusky, Penn State and Black Boys but Facebook (on my page anyway) seems silent. What gives?

      Yesterday at 8:25am ·
    • Jenn RobertsI don’t feel sorry for Paterno at all. I am considered a mandatory reporter in my profession, but I think all people should be mandatory reporters. He could have and should have done more. Even if he thought telling his athletic director was enough, when he realized nothing was happening thy is cue to call the cops or anonymously report. You don’t have to say who you are when you report incidents like this so there’s really no excuse good enough in my opinion.

      Yesterday at 8:33am ·
    • Kevin RhodesIsidra, PSU has assignment a Black trustee to head up the investigation…..that should tell you who the victims are!

      Yesterday at 8:51am ·
    • Tee Jefferson Lyonsthis is just the worst thing i have heard and it’s been going on for so long, i just feel so terrible for the victims.

      Yesterday at 8:59am ·
    • Isidra Person-LynnKevin I had heard that but did not find the story. I will search now that you said it. I know you know what you’re talking about. Tee, I feel you! And Jenn, you are right. We must all report. I only felt sorry for him because I had not read the story for what it was and I have a soft spot for old people.

      Yesterday at 9:32am ·
    • Isidra Person-LynnBTW, the first link under “Read it for yourself” actually goes to the PDF of the report. This Sandusky guy was relentless.

    • My research continues:  Read these stories!

    THIS IS NOT NEW. This story ALSO involved black boys: Another Era and Another Sport Sex Abuse Scandal Still Inflicting Pain Today:

  • From EUR WEB:

It Begins at Home: Parents, please closely monitor your children’s interaction with anyone.  Child sexual abuse ruins generations.  Monitor your own boyfriends and girlfriends access to your children, monitor older siblings, step children, step-parents, neighbors, relatives,–teachers and yes, coaches.  If there is no access, no one can sexually or any other way abuse your child.  And if you are the abuser, PLEASE GET HELP.  It is unconscionable allow a child to be hurt in any way.

Happy Anniversary, SML!

Daylight Saving Time ended at 2 a.m. Set all of your clocks to Fall Back!
We have moved! And because that was an intense move, we thought we needed this week off.  Then it dawned on us:  We are now using a totally  new system.  We had better do a show to see how this all works BEFORE we celebrate the 50th.  As we were weeding through papers, we noticed that Kathy Williamson and I  started Sunday Morning Live last year this time.   So, here we are 1 year later.
This is NOT the 50th show, technically.  We call this Sunday Morning Live Express, but then we had enough content to do almost an actual show. But it is not the 50th!
Goals for this year?
  1. To find an experienced co-host who would provide a link to the young ones coming along!
  2. To actually look for donations or bring advertisement.
  3. To promote SML
  4. To get sponsorship
  5. To send reporters far and wide to do stories.
  6. To upgrade equipment
  7. To broadcast on-location.
  8. To increase the membership on our Facebook on the SML page

Today’s Schedule:

November 13 will mark our 50th Show, but Sunday Nov.6, we celebrate our one year anniversary on a special Sunday Morning Live Express!

According to the video description of the original video (see:
United States Marine Corps. Sgt. Shamar Thomas from Roosevelt, NY went toe to toe with the New York Police Department. An activist in the Occupy Wall Street movement, Thomas voiced his opinions of the NYPD police brutality that had and has been plaguing the #OWS movement.

Thomas comes from a long line of people who sacrifice for their country: Mother, Army Veteran (Iraq), Step father, Army, active duty (Afghanistan), Grand father, Air Force veteran (Vietnam), Great Grand Father Navy veteran (World War II).

Street Violence in Oakland from RT
  It looks strangely organized to me.  I’m just sayin’.

The General Strike in Oakland had many marches throughout the day including this march against Capitalism. Thousands took to the streets in the Californian city and shut down operations in one of America’s major sea ports. ­This follows last week’s violent police dispersal of a demonstrators’ camp, which resulted in a former US marine being severely injured.
