Let’s Talk #2ndChances [Tonight]

Wisconsin #2ndChances Townhall

Re-enfranchisement of our community is important if we are to build power in this society. Join us tonight  at 6pm CT on Twitter for our #2ndChances Town Hall. We will discuss the importance of giving back the vote to those with prior criminal convictions and what it would do for communities of color.

In the past elections we realized just how much power we lost because of false information. We need people to know that if you are completely discharged from parole/probation you can vote. During this election season its important for us to make the connection between re-enfranchisement and elections. We all know politics guides our everyday lives. We need to harness the influence of election and those running for office to our advantage.

Featuring:

  • James Causey, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel columnist and Wisconsin Black Media Association president
  • Pastor Walter Lanier,  Founder Great Lakes Urban Empowerment Center founder and attorney of law

Join the conversation by tweeting to the hashtag #2ndChances and let’s discuss building power, expanding the vote and how elections help us to do that.

Chief Keef x Lupe Fiasco Squash Beef!


It was silly anyways, the recent 5 second beef between two Chicago rappers that appeared to be ‘very ugly’. Chief Keef has said a bunch of crazy things in interviews and via social networks that his publicists and I both wish he could take back. Who can forget his infamous claim that Kanye West had nothing to do with his success. If you thought the kid couldn’t go any further, you were wrong.

[WATCH] Could Indiana’s New Bill Get Cops Killed???

For years, police have been getting away with murder because of stupid laws and stipulations and even recently the ‘stand your ground‘ law has justified the death of black boys worldwide. Ironically, law enforcement in Indiana are treading lightly after a new bill, SB1, has been introduced that could justify a person shooting a police officer if he was wrongfully entering into his home.

It kind of reminds me of the time when the cops kicked in my door looking for someone else that didn’t live there. The entire time, the cops surrounded my house, I had my firearm drawn thinking I was being robbed. Would I have been within my rights to think that if i’m not guilty of anything? What would you do?

First, I think it’s important that you hear what you can’t do!
