DryerBuzzonWAOK | Can Communities and Police Co-Exist with Same Goal? No more loss of life? | Great Debate with Stepp Stewart and Gerald E Rose

December 14, 2014

DryerBuzzonWAOK — We interrupt our regularly scheduled Language of Men show to bring you answers with Gerald E Rose, founder of New Order Civil and Human Rights Group.

A lot happened this week from congressional hearings on all matters of policing to local and national marches.  So where do we march to from here? Can communities and police co-exist with same goal of saving lives where #BlackLivesMatters?

Some feel there was a division of weekend marches with separation by generation, gender, victims? How do we keep focus?  Get ready for a great debate on DryerBuzzonWAOK with Yalanda P Lattimore.

the Clippings | Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed Rips Local News a New One Over Coverage of Mike Brown Protests | #MediaApartheid

November 26, 2014

the Clippings — Atlanta local news reporters arrived at a press conference Wednesday with Mayor Kasim Reed and police chief Turner ready to spin the Mike Brown protests which took place in Atlanta.  Suffice it to say, the Mayor was not having it.  He would not allow local media to permeate the airwaves with news about the city or protests by focusing on a couple hours of events.  It was apparent local news had little intention to portray positives of day long protests which took place around the city as part of national response.

What a way to rep our city. #TurnDownForWhat.  Watching the mayor undoing #MediaApartheid with local news must make millennials proud to see their mayor have their back.  Without the mayor’s insistence on accurate reporting, there is no telling how events would be recorded in news history.


Local news teams begged questions of why not more arrests and even brought up freaknik??? Makes us wonder about their demographics??? Watch replay below.

Sunset: Herman J Russell Death Notice | Obituary

November 15, 2014

Clipped from Black Enterprise — Death Notice — Herman J Russell

Herman J. Russell, the iconic entrepreneur who built the nation’s largest black-owned construction and real estate firm, as well as much of the Atlanta skyline, died today at the age of 83. He was also a behind-the-scenes financial backer of the 1960s Civil Rights Movement led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., later playing a critical role in the construction (both literally and in terms of economic and civic participation for African Americans) of the “New South” Atlanta during the administration of the city’s first black mayor, Maynard H. Jackson Jr. Russell was the first black member of Atlanta’s Chamber of Commerce and the second black person to lead the organization as its president.
