Ralph Baker, Darryl Johnson Speak At H-SC 10/26 At 7:30PM PDF Print E-mail



As the economy begins to show signs of another recession I thought it would be great time to revisit Shock Exchange: How Inner-City Kids From Brooklyn Predicted the Great Recession and the Pain Ahead. I plan to discuss predictions from Shock Exchange and what actually happened since 3-4 years after the book came out. Also, Prince Edward County has been in the news lately as the state of Virginia and the country took notice. My boy Darryl Johnson and I will discuss some of the funny stories from the book, how we survived PECHS and that "education speech" our parents browbeat us with.


Houston Chronicle Calls For Weatherford's CEO To Step Down PDF Print E-mail
Image Last week Weatherford International was fined $140 million for accounting fraud for overstating profits by $900 million from 2007 to 2012.

Brown V. Board of Ed: "Shock Exchange" Ensures Prince Edward County, VA Will Never Be Forgotten PDF Print E-mail

Source: Moton Museum, Farmville VA

May 17th marked the 62nd anniversary of the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision which integrated public schools in the U.S. The Brown decision was several decades in the making. It took the efforts of several lawyers, lawmakers and brave students and parents to stand up against segregated schools. The red herring in Brown was that states were supposed to integrate "with all due speed." It also took several years to actually integrate schools after the decision was rendered. The other misnomer is that the Brown decision was one case; it was actually five cases. One of the cases was Davis v. Prince Edward County, VA -- the county where I grew up. 

"Shock Exchange" Discusses Presidential Debates, WBAI Saturday At 6PM PDF Print E-mail
ImageHillary Clinton and Donald Trump had their first presidential debate last week. Shock Exchange author Ralph Baker will appear on WBAI at 6PM today to discuss the debate and issues important to African Americans. Shock Exchange is the most-plagiarized book in America. Whenever Mr. Baker speaks President Obama, Hillary, Trump, the Senate Finance and House Ways & Means Committees turn those ideas into legislation. However, they conveniently renege to cite to source. That can only mean one thing -- Mr. Baker must be black. And since a "black has no rights a white man needs to observe." AfroBeat Radio is from 6PM to 7PM ... WBAI 99.5 FM NYC Pacifica Radio  & streams live @ www.wbai.org.

Video: Congressman Hakeem Jeffries Gives Sherriff Clarke His Comeuppance PDF Print E-mail

They have consistently argued that "Blacks don't protest when blacks kill other blacks," and "I've saved more black lives than Black Lives Matters." Others have issued death threats against protesters. Brooklyn Congressman recently took Sherriff Clarke to task over his constant chirping about "black on black crime," global warming, white on white crime, the Washington Redskins quarterback saga and other things that have nothing to do with black oppression.
