Is True Love Real? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Hey Conversationers, this conversation is continuing due to last weeks “no show“.

The question still remains, “Is True Love Real?” Are you living it? Do you believe it’s possible? Are you striving to attain it?

Some people do experience clearly magical connections very early on in a relationship that predict long-term commitment and devotion. The intense drive of sexual attraction is part of every new relationship but there are additional feelings when true, long-lasting love is a possibility.

The sense of being alive is felt simultaneously and in every cell in the body. The heart feels as if it is opening, the mind is engaged, the senses are awakened, and a feeling of transcendence often emerges. Many new couples start out believing they are having some of these experiences, only to find out that they somehow didn’t keep happening. Those are understandable disappointments.

But every partnership has a better chance when the people within them feel early on that their connection is real and won’t go away. True love doesn’t give in to the typical challenges that end most relationships. It actually grows stronger when it is threatened.

Join me tonight at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via blog talk radio, for my commentary, “Is True Love a Reality?”

“Is True Love Real?” Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


First of all, what is true love? True love is the true definition of a perfect romance. But it’s not easy to find or maybe even be realistic. Some people do experience clearly magical connections very early on in a relationship that predict long-term commitment and devotion. The intense drive of sexual attraction is part of every new relationship but there are additional feelings when true, long-lasting love is a possibility. The sense of being alive is felt simultaneously and in every cell of the body. The heart feels as if it is opening, the mind is completely engaged, the senses are awakened, and a feeling of transcendence often emerges.

Many new couples start out believing they are having some of these experiences, only to find out that they somehow didn’t keep happening, or that their connection lost its spark. Those are understandable disappointments. But every partnership has a better chance of surviving when the people within them feel early on that the relationship is real and won’t go away. True love doesn’t give in to the typical challenges that end most relationships. It grows stronger when it is threatened.

Join me on “Conversations Of A Sistah” at 6:30 p.m. EST for my commentary, “Is True Love Real?”

See you on the air but in the meantime sound off here!

Old-Time Slave Code…Is it still in Effect? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


ab229_burns2-jpg-resize-710x399The oldest U.S. slave laws are found in the State of Virginia. There is a publication entitled The Statutes at Large; Being a Collection of all the Laws of Virginia, volume 2 (1823) by William W. Henning. This publication contains the Virginia Slave Codes. Among these codes is a document, dated October of 1669, which is entitled “An act about the casual killing of slaves”.

Under the 4th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, when a law enforcement officer is pursuing a suspect, the officer may apply deadly force to prevent escape if he or she has “probable cause” to believe that the suspect poses a threat. Needless to say, it is very difficult to prove that a law enforcement officer does not have “probable cause”.

Those terms, which delude to slavery, were defined as objects of commercial trade in the Law of Nations. This definition carried over into the U.S. slave laws and later on, into the various statues that are in effect today. A slave is one who is void of a nationality, as nationality determines one’s political status and a slave has no political rights. The nationality of Moors was taken away from them in 1774 and the words “negro”, “black” and “colored” were given to Asiatics, of America, who were of Moorish descent.

The conversation never STOPS!!!.

We’ll explore the “Casual Killing Act of blacks” on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


attachIs Justifiable Homicide the Modern Day “Casual Killing Of Slaves”?

When you think about Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant, Sean Bell, Philandro Decastro, Terrance Crutcher, Alton Sterling, Keith Lamont, Sandra Bland, Yvette Smith and so many other black men and women who were unjustifiably murdered under the guise of “justifiable homicide” by police, the numbers are alarming.

Unfortunately, not a year goes by without a news report of some young man or woman dying at the hands of police (or someone who acts as if they are the police). Usually, these cases are polarized by the factor of race.

Join me tonight at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” with my special guest, community activist and New Era leader Keith Horton” (pictured left above), as we explore the “Casual Killing Act of blacks” then and now.

Is there “Light skin vs. dark Skin” privilege in Society? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Light_Skin_PriviledgeHard to believe we did a show just four (4) years ago, in 2012 regardingLight Skin vs. Dark Skinand this very topic is still alive and very well today.

Since Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams spoke out of turn (for some), at the BET Awards last month, social media and online blogs felt he wasn’t black enough to do so.

Williams, who is half white, called out white people for appropriating black music for fame and profit.

He also showed support for social media militants, Black Lives Matter, saying, “We know that police somehow manage to de-escalate, disarm and not kill white people every day.”

Williams, whose mother is white and father black, let the world know just how comfortable he is NOT with his fame, in today’s hateful society of injustice and inequality.

Williams’ speech set-off such a firestorm online and in the media, that a petition was circulated calling the series creator Shonda Rhimes to fire Williams from ‘Anatomy’.

Many saying if Isaiah Washington was fired for being outspoken Williams should be fired just as well. Setting off the theory that “light skinned” blacks receive preferential treatment over “dark skinned blacks”.

Tune in tonight at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via blog talk radio for this discussion “Is there “Light skin vs. dark Skin” privilege in Society?”
