Bigotry At Half-Staff

Bigotry At Half-Staff It’s been 4 days since 9 Americans were murdered in a South Carolina AME church, but not just any church. Those Americans were murdered in the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston and that church carries strong historical significance. “Mother Emanuel” is the oldest AME church in the Southern US and houses the oldest black congregation south of Baltimore. That church was built at a time in our history when African Americans found themselves under increasing discrimination in the white Methodist church and the breaking point was when a stable for the hearse was built...

The Opinionated Bitch – On Celebrating American Ignorance

On Celebrating American Ignorance Waiting out the noise of the Trayvon Martin trial verdict seemed prudent in an effort to avoid being emotional. In retrospect, good choice because so much of what I had initially assumed turned out to be dead wrong. I frequently make jokes about living in Hooterville, my nickname for a Blue heart living in a Red State, but virtually seconds after the verdict, this place sounded like a war zone. I raced outside, thinking my home was under siege. What I witnessed can only be described as the saddest thing I’ve ever seen. My neighbors...

HERE WOMEN TALK ABOUT PAYING FOR SEX Live! on The Colin Lively Show, Fri. Aug.17 2pm EDT

Roadkill on the Internet Highway I have a whole slew of nieces that I love to communicate with. “Uncle Colin, we don’t communicate with phone calls any more. You have to get yourself a computer and start e-mailing, like every one else does, or you are going to be roadkill on the side of the internet highway”. Then one of nieces, Michelle, came to NYC and set me up with a dial up Dell desktop. And that’s where it started. Thank God for Michelle. Because many of my friends who are my age still haven’t mastered even the emailing....

The Opinionated Bitch – Trayvon Martin is Everyone’s Son

The news feed is flooded with stories on the shooting death of a teenaged black youth in Sanford, Florida named Trayvon Martin.  As with all issues in this country, there are two competing camps with diametrically opposed views as to what happened.  Truthfully, I don’t know what happened, though I have an opinion.  I’ve listened to the 911 tapes, both the redacted one issued by police and another where you can hear a racial epithet uttered in a whisper.  Each is equally disturbing.  Most disturbing are the cries on the tape.  The shooter claims those are his cries.  Trayvon’s...

Rock and Roll, Murder, Hair and Woodstock

Rock and Roll, Murder, Hair and Woodstock It will be a bittersweet Colin Lively Show this week. Colin will be taking a walk down Memory Lane as his guest on this week’s show takes him down his. Colin Lively, a country boy, was growing up in the shadow the Appalachian Mountains in West Virginia. Donald Riggio, a city boy, was growing up in the Bronx in the shadow of the Throg’s Neck Bridge. A typical Sunday morning for Colin was having biscuits, red eye gravy, and grits..then off to the Rainelle Methodist Church, and lunch with the proper folk...
