    Thank You Josh!
    This IS the "heads up" as the show is scheduled for tomorrow at 8am. I will be speaking about creating "Safe Communities" and talking about the program I've developed as an example.
    Hope you can make it and call in with questions!

    M.E.

    What is your position on the 3rd planet relative to the sun?

    In other words is it 8am east coast time? west coast time?

    Hey Josh,

    First allow me to Thank You for tuning into the show and for your questions.

    This was my first invitation and opportunity to speak sorta publicly about myself and my work. It was BlackTasTic to have someone interested in hearing and asking questions.

    I was aware that you did not get a chance to finish with your questions and points and, as I listened to the audio on the myspace blog site tonite I was reminded of that.
    Is there anything you'd like to share now as follow-up from the show?

    Thank you truetothecause.

    It was very satisfying to find a black person who is transforming their talk into actions. Too many of us talk about countering racism but we never take any action; I know cause Im one of em.

    I found your concept of the "safety room" to be very interesting, did you coin the term?

    Its sounds to me like you have much experience in the field of helping people solve their problems. Have you written up the codes for the safety room concept?


    I really liked the way you didn't hide or "softshoe" the difficulties you face trying to take the "safety room" from concept to reality.


    I think the key is to find some money for you. The problem you are trying to solve is apparent, and the concept you have come up with to solve it is a good place to start. There is a lot of grant money "out there", you need to get some of it.

    I think the key is to get the LANGUAGE of your concept, mission statement, codes, and funding request AIRTIGHT! And then you just start shopping it around. You might be surprised at the amount of money available to tend to all the wounded and damaged blk people this system produces; and given the finacial ****storm approaching, theres gonna be a whole lot of blk people needing mental help.


    I know cause Im one of em.


    Let me know if you have any questions and maybe we can plan a phone conference with some people who know more about how to do this than me.

    Josh

    Hello truetothecause,

    I recorded the program on Solutions Now! Radio and would like to place it in rotation on the Counter-Racism Radio Network. Please send me an e-mail at [email protected] and let me know what name you want associated with your interview. I currently have the host, Candice, and the Radio Station (Solutions Now! Radio). I'll need your name as the interviewee before I can add the interview into rotation.

    And also, thank you for registering on the Counter-Racism Work/Study Project.
