“Harassed & Killed while Black” Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


MINNEAPOLIS, MN,- MAY 26: People face off with police near the Minneapolis 3rd Police Precinct.

Two incidents took place this week, one in New York City and the other in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

A huge “I can’t breath” rally took place in Minnesota after the death of George Floyd who died in police custody. Four Minneapolis police officers have been fired after a video taken by a bystander was posted on social media showing Floyd’s neck being pinned to the ground by an officer as he repeatedly said, “I can’t breathe”. Floyd was later pronounced dead after being transported to Hennepin County Medical Center. Over 1000 people attended a rally outside the 3rd Precinct Police Station in Minneapolis, Minnesota to protest the death of George Floyd who died in police custody.

Then on Monday in Central Park, Christian Cooper (pictured left above) was bird watching when a white woman (pictured right) made a frantic 911 call on a Black man for asking her to leash her dog. The woman was later fired after the video went viral throughout social media.

We’re discussing it all tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah” at 6:30 p.m. EST and taking your calls in the studio at 516-595-8098.

This week, the U.S. joined nations around the world in instituting sweeping emergency measures to further combat the corona-virus pandemic.

And now public health advocates are saying African Americans are at a greater risk of death from corona virus.

For a whole host of economic, political and historical reasons, Georges C. Benjamin, executive director of the American Public Health Association, says it’s a threat that African Americans need to take particularly seriously.

“Has Religion Brainwashed Black People into Forgiving?” Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Black people didn’t know what to think after Botham Jean’s brother hugged the former Dallas cop who took his brother’s life in a deadly case of mistaken identity.

Last Tuesday a jury convicted Amber Guyger of murder in the fatal shooting of her upstairs neighbor. She claimed she mistook his apartment for her own after working a 13-hour shift on Sept. 6, 2018.

Prosecutors showed the jury racist text messages and racially offensive memes on Guyger’s social media accounts.

Guyger, 31, was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Wednesday, Oct. 2.

During his victim impact testimony, Jean’s brother, Brandt Jean told Guyger, who is white, that he forgives her and didn’t want her to go to prison. “I love you as a person, and I don’t wish anything bad on you,” Brandt said.

After his testimony, Brandt gave Guyger an emotional embrace that stunned social media.

There was more odd behavior in the courtroom. A Black bailiff was seen stroking and primping Guyger’s hair after her guilty verdict was announced.

The courtroom behavior angered many and confused others.

Join us at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations of A Sistah” via Blog Talk Radio for our discussion on “Has Religion Brainwashed Black People into Forgiving?

Amber Guyger – Guilty or did she stand her ground? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Amber Guyger, 31 shot and killed Botham Jean in his apartment in September 2018. Guyger’s story is that she entered Jean’s apartment thinking it was hers, and believed she encountered a burglar who might kill her. Jean’s apartment was one floor above Guyger’s. Prosecutors argue that Guyger saw several numerous signs indicating she was on wrong floor and at the wrong apartment, including a skylight, a neighbor’s decorative planter, Jean’s red doormat and differences in the hallways.

Jurors, who began deliberating on Monday, were instructed to find whether Guyger is guilty of murder, manslaughter or neither. Prosecutors objected to applying the castle doctrine because Guyger was in Jean’s home — not the other way around. Although the judge allowed it and the defense leaned on it, it didn’t work and Guyger was found guilty of murder.

Join the Conversation with host Tracy L. Bell at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations of a Sistah” as we discuss the Amber Guyger case. Is she guilty or did she stand her ground?
