Real Brother here. Pie Resumes. 

When I moved to Los Angeles away from my family in the Northwest there was nothing I missed more then my mothers Sweet Potato Pie. On holiday's my moms[Real Sista] would make four or five pies and we'd chow down from sun up to sun down. My folks are from Baton Rough Louisiana and I never really thought about the origin of my mothers sweet potato pie let alone the recipe. Growing up it was a holiday tradition to pay a visit to everyone you knew in the neighborhood and while visiting sample their pie.

From day one  I noticed something; nobody can make a sweet potato pie like my mother. I used to secretly curse my mother for not going global with her pies and putting Marie Calenders out of business. We'll I finally did it. 

After years of not being able to come close to the perfection and delight of those pies I went on ahead and requested the recipe and now I can share it with you. If you check my blog or my numerous posts you'll know I have never lied and I'm not about to start now.

This is the most incredible delicious pie you have EVER tasted if its not ...then you are the no cookingest person around. Bump what you heard this recipe for Sweet Potato Pie is a game changer. And now without further a due[Mr. President you ready?] I present Mrs. Cal's Sweet Potato Pie.

1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Real Brother Here. Play Resumes.

The racists at Politico smelling blood in the water decided to go for the kill in an article disguised as 5 ways to rescue liberal talk radio. You can view the article in its entirety here: http://www.politico.com/story/2013/11/liberal-talk-radio-rescue-100408_Page2.html  The premise of the article was that Progressives don't get it that its all about fun and entertainment and people really hate Democracy and therefore to succeed liberal shows must attack Democrats and promote anarchy and scorched earth policies.., unless of course the Republicans take over the Senate and or the White House then only the most serious discussions about ideology and policy should be the norm.

The premise is faulty for a number of reasons, namely the notion that liberal talk radio has failed when conservatives haven't legitimately won a political debate since 1950. For all of the entertainment value of conservative talk radio, they've failed to convince Americans that their Marxism and social reversion back to the seventeenth century is a better course for the nation to take.

"And who are they really kidding? Number one in the ratings is nothing compared to number one on election day."  ~RB RADIO SHOW

Liberals, progressives and I'd add the Obama Nation-- characterized as those of us who are Moderates who don't have a problem with a black President--tend to look at Fox News or Rush Limbaugh in envy of their ratings and financial success. What we don't realize is while it would be nice to be rich and popular among ten percent of the electorate, the chances of our policy initiatives holding sway or having any influence in society are remote.

"If progressive radio really wants to get on the map, its hosts would do well to remember that one of the reasons the liberal talk radio network Air America flopped was that they forgot they were in the radio business, not in the get my candidate elected business ~Al Peterson, MediaOnline

Nice try but no, Air America failed because they didn't have any black people on the air who were willing or able to tell the truth. Remember conservative talk radio has NEVER gotten a Mitt Romney, John McCain or Sarah Palin elected to anything. Following a conservative model for any reason would be self-defeating but to follow one thinking you'll get Democratic versions of Newt Gingrich elected President is the height of stupidity.

This notion of the radio business as separate and apart from any other business relating to the media is a red herring.  Media types convinced the public is stupid and as such can be programmed by the media is at the heart of the problem. It started with books like George Orwell's 1984, and earlier with movies like the 1974 film Network.

I remember in Journalism School at the University of Washington we thought they struck a deal with the late David Halberstam who was the father of the modern conservative control of media model.  It was Halberstam's 1972 book entitled; The Powers That Be based on the premise that whoever owns and controls the media, controls the minds and hearts of the people.

One of the books early converts was a young aid to then President Richard Nixon who was so incensed with what he thought was a liberal media that he dreamed of a conservative network who's sole purpose was to get the conservative message out.

According to Zev Chafets’s in his 2013 book titled Roger Ailes Off Camera, it was Ailes who proposed Nixon's notion of a conservative news network to media maven and conservative contributor Rupert Murdock who was so enamored with the idea he fully funded what would be called the Fox News Network and the rest is as they say, history.

Very important to note: if you start a network with a faulty premise--you can trick and fool people into electing racist loons to public office--you will come to a faulty conclusion--that liberal radio that actually reports the truth and facts will fail.

They failed because they failed to understand they were in the radio business - not the politics business” ~Al Peterson 

You didn't fool me the first time so you certainly won't fool me twice. The media has ONE BUSINESS and that's to tell the truth and report the facts. Its not about pushing one ideology or philosophy over another. If we fall for this nonsense that truth and fact doesn't work or isn't marketable then we get exactly what we deserve and that's a ninety-eight percent conservative owned and operated media that less than 1% of the population listens to.

"Progressive radio will always be at the mercy of right-wing owners, which they are today. Until progressives take ownership of stations and control them, they’ll never be on a level playing field."

~Bill Press BP SHOW

Wrong. Of course conservatives will argue if they buy up all the terrestrial radio stations then liberal talk radio won't stand a chance but its simply not true. There's a reason that Fox continues to win in the ratings with only two million viewers, that reason; The other two-hundred and ninety-eight million Americans know its nonsense and racist propaganda and don't even bother to watch. 

No if you tell the truth be it from the right or the left people who aren't stupid will embrace it. The problem is conservatives believe in their nonsense and are hell bent on pushing it whether its a successful format or not they don't care. Twitter's IPO was underwritten by conservatives who as a condition of sale forced the site to ban liberal voices like mine who didn't fit the narrative they want to push.

"We need to push the truth and the facts just as fervently as the right pushes nonsense and a return to 1950." ~RB RADIO SHOW

The Politico article talked about a lack of talent on the left that would rival bigots like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity et. all. This too is lame because Thom Hartmann, Stephanie Miller, Bill Press and Ed Schultz currently on the airwaves, are no sooner gonna tell the truth as to why white racists want to return to 1950 as conservative stars will.

"If Obama's victories have taught us anything its that the truth, the facts, being correct trumps a big or loud personality(hope Governor Christie isn't listening)." ~RB RADIO SHOW

The fourth area that Politico offers will save liberal talk radio is again intended as a pump fake to get us to abandon terrestrial radio for what conservatives see as an inferior platform online. Again a faulty premise that leads them to a silly and self-inflicting conclusion. If only boring, loud, fake Benghazi, Birther, Obama's a Muslim, Socialist, Marxist, Anti-Christ  talkers are on the radio then their narrative will become the reality. Its simply not so. People will simply turn it off.

"The notion that destroying something as a way of proving it unworthy to exist is a major tenet of conservative philosophy which is so damn dumb its stupid." ~RB RADIO SHOW

The fifth and final tidbit of advice Politico offers up that would save liberal talk radio is the 2016 election, which will decide the fate of Democracy as we know it.

Again a faulty assumption because if the audience for talk radio is only two million then either nobody's listening or the fare being offered is so racist or radically skewed to the far left that very few people take the medium seriously enough to base their voting decisions on it. MSNBC's Chris Hayes reports that One-hundred and thirty million American's voted in the 2012 election. If only two million of them were swayed by the 98% conservative owned media then so what?

So am I arguing  that liberal talk radio doesn't need to be saved? No but it does need to change. I called Reverend Al Sharpton's Keeping It Real radio program he had Joy Ann Reid on--who's the best there is--but they were both lying about why black kids were playing the Knock Out game to protest the murders of Trayvon Martin and Renisha McBride as well as the general hatred and attacks of young blacks coming from all sides of the spectrum.

Nobody is naive enough to think the left is correct in its tell us what they think we need to know approach to talk radio any more than the right is to lie and mislead us. Let's not be led by the belief that anything will save liberal talk radio other then the facts and the truth 24/7, if not then Twitter and Facebook will become the only legitimate source for news and information which, while all right with the masses doesn't bode too well for those in the talk radio business.

Those are my thoughts as usual, I invite yours.

Real Brother here.  Play Resumes.  Dear Black Race:

While no African-American individual has more wealth then Oprah Winfrey, collectively within' ten years African American buying power will be over a TRILLION DOLLARS. Yes collectively Blacks have ten times the wealth of Oprah. Does that mean Blacks will collectively support The Real Brother Radio Show or Warren Ballentine's Invest In Us? Probably not.

And probably not because Blacks wouldn't be opposed to a media that's not owned by those who are opposed to our interests as Blacks but more out of a belief that pooling even a little bit of that TRILLION DOLLARS won't benefit "us" as Blacks.  

What we in the Black Press are failing to do is make the case for WHY or HOW we will collectively achieve our American Dream when that dream will always be seen as something exclusively for Whites. Not JUST that the dream is only for Whites but that Whites will be upset and come down hard on Blacks who would even dare try to steal THEIR American Dream.                                                        

By not addressing this we allow our collective to believe that we don't get it. That we don't realize the consequences of Blacks trying to co-opt the White American Dream. I don't know about Warren but I for sure get it- which is why I can write about it. I detest the collective hatred Blacks in the media have for Black Culture and impeticular young Black men.

Collectively that Trillion Dollars isn't going to come only from Blacks who use to work @CNN or from Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope or from the Black women who subscribe to Essence Magazine. No if we are to make the TRILLION DOLLARS work for us then it has to include the ENTIRE SPECTRUM of Blacks not just Blacks approved by Whites.

Our collective wealth depends on the entire spectrum of Black Culture from President Obama to Lil Wayne. I know I just lost so many by even mentioning Lil Wayne but if we are to again put all of our TRILLION DOLLARS to work it can't be just Oprah or Just Reverend Al Sharpton it has to be EVERYONE. It costs us NOTHING to understand that and would give us a Trillion Dollars in buying power if we did.

The notion of "collective wealth" or "generational wealth" as it relates the the Black community is indeed achievable but not if we are asking Whites to grant and or approve of that wealth. If the situation were reversed and Blacks were being asked by Whites is it OK if they pool a Trillion Dollars and insure that they as Whites have the American Dream would we say; "Sure, go head, knock yourselves out." Did Asians ask Whites or Blacks was it OK if they create generational wealth?

So no, we can do it but we'll never do it by begging Whites for their blessing. Its not an affront to Whites or Asians you really think they want to carry us, provide all the goods and services we consume? You really think Whites and Asians want the burden of allowing us to make them rich? OK, maybe they don't mind us making them rich but still.

The problem of pooling the collective wealth of Blacks so that it can work for Blacks is not easy, if it was someone would have done it long before I came along.

My aim is to simply explain HOW and WHY we must pool our Trillion Dollars together, to let all of you know I understand what your concerns are. While I don't fear what or how Whites will react-- as I expect many won't be all too keen on the idea--the benefits far outweigh the negatives but yes I fully understand Black reluctance to butt heads with Whites who fear Blacks pooling our wealth together far more than we do.

That said, I make this plea again to finance the outlets, the media that will allow us to simply PUT OUT THE MESSAGE. I'm not promising to give anyone a monetary return but if I have an audience with Oprah or Magic I'm not asking them for $10, I'm asking them for the INFORMATION of how they became Billionaires and isn't that more valuable than the ten dollars? Those are my thoughts as usual I invite yours.

RB v. Lies In Miami's Martin/Incognito Bullygate

Real Brother here. Play Resumes.

Whenever you repeatedly have to set the record straight on an incident you know you need to blog about it so when they start that crap about blacks identifying with that racist monster Richie Incognito more than they do Johnathon Martin you can simply post the blog instead of say one more time that they have it all wrong.

The latest dishonest black liar to get it all wrong is Jason Reid, a writer for the Washington Post you can read his nonsense here:  http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/redskins/miami-dolphins-blacks-support-for-richie-incognito-in-nfl-bullying-affair-is-troubling/2013/11/08/de154eda-48ba-11e3-bf0c-cebf37c6f484_story.html?Post+generic=%3Ftid%3Dsm_twitter_washingtonpost   

Make no mistake, blacks are NOT hired at these Conservative owned media conglomerates unless they fully understand that they are to support their Corporate Masters at each and every turn any attempt to even accidentally slip in the truth will make what Incognito did to Martin look like a wedgie.

Its crazy because blacks like myself who aren't allowed anywhere near Conservative owned media aren't stupid we know if we simply bash black culture, black people and this black President every chance we get we can get paid and all the sudden we're so much smarter and better than real brothers and sista's inclined to tell the truth.

What they don't know is their audience isn't stupid. They know you know why the black Dolphin players are siding with Incognito, Dolphin management and the NFL. Johnathon Martin ain't signin' nary a check, those racists are.

"But for me, what’s most disturbing is that several misguided African American Dolphins players — Mike Wallace, Mike Pouncey, Brent Grimes and Michael Egnew have been among Incognito’s most vocal defenders — identify more closely with Martin’s alleged tormentor than they do with Martin. Their support for Incognito shows the wrongheaded thinking that can arise from the locker-room culture and long-standing beliefs in the African American community about what behavior is socially acceptable for blacks."  ~Jason Reid

That argument is so damn dumb its stupid. At the heart of the lame argument is the belief that black culture is defined as stupid, uneducated, degenerate and dumb so if you're black and you see President Obama doesn't fit that absurd narrative then you more identify with Ted Nugent.

No as I said the black players would catch Holy Hell if they went against the notion that whites no matter how dumb, vulgar, offensive, racist are, at the end of the day white and that's where the power is. We live in a society where white is right even when its wrong.

"The other black players on the Dolphins roster would no sooner call Incognito on his racism then Jason Reid would." ~RB

No, what's socially acceptable for blacks is to not think that its OK to belittle and put down the blacks who weren't born with the silver spoon in their mouths or that its somehow an egregious crime to treat the House Negro the same as you do the brothers who have a clue.

We don't know if Martin was arrogant and thought he was too good to be perceived as black by the rest of the team but we do know he was black.  If that's what Incognito was doing to other black players and Martin didn't come to their defense then why in the hell would he think they would come to his when their paychecks were in question?

We know damn good and well there are two sides to this story but the racist owned media doesn't want to present the side of players that didn't go to Stanford, who's parents didn't go to Harvard for the very same racist nonsense reason that won't allow them to put any real brothers or sista's on their writing staffs. The notion that blacks who aren't related to the Queen of England are somehow too stupid to know when bousgie blacks are thumbing their noses at us is crazy, please give us more credit than that.

"Dolphins players view Incognito as one of the guys. From Martin’s position on the outskirts of the locker room, he couldn’t see the inner circle. And being an outsider can make you a target in the unforgiving, alpha-male world of the NFL — especially if you’re African American."
~Jason Reid

I glanced at the University of Texas Accountability Report which compares the number of African-American incoming Freshmen at UT to see how the university is doing in regards to diversity admissions. For me far more important were the number of those African-Americans who graduate with their white, Asian and African peers.

A 2009 report that large numbers of black students were failing at UT was blamed on rap music and a culture that saw educational attainment as acting white. Yet, the black students who were allowed onto the Austin UT campus had to be the top students at their High Schools, these were the very students that were accused of acting white until they failed at UT then all the sudden they became 2PAC. No, well adjusted blacks can navigate both worlds and only get into trouble when they break out their fake British accent on Poetry Night at the Magic Johnson Starbucks.

"To African Americans on the Dolphins, Martin was a 6-foot-5, 312-pound oddball because his life experience was radically different from theirs. It’s an old story among African Americans. Too often, instead of celebrating what makes us different and learning from each other, we criticize more educated or affluent African Americans for not “keeping it real.” ~Jason Reid

Really? No really? How in the hell would anyone "KNOW" how anyone grew up by simply playing football next to them? Blacks don't hate on other blacks because of their upbringing that's just silly. But thinking you are better than me because of your upbringing to the point to where you have as much disdain for me as racist monster Incognito has well that's another story.

"Keeping it real means we're all black and we don't owe it to the black idiots who somehow think their upbringing makes them less black." ~RB

Reid quotes another black Idiot(not sure what race the guy is but still) who offers this: "Sometimes, in a gladiator sport like football, intelligence can be perceived as being soft.” ~Coy Wire

That's another lie. We're talking about black people here not white people. Blacks don't value dumb we can't afford to, we celebrate intelligence--96% of blacks voted for Obama-- knowledge, we seek it out embrace it as long as you don't thumb your nose at the Lil' People. We fail when we give blacks or anyone that has attained a certain educational status a pass for anti-social behavior because of their academic attainment. Its the basis for the phrase, gone to his head

Ironic how the very people touting Martin's education, intelligence and upper class upbringing will make the dummy move of accusing me of siding with the thugs the uneducated ghetto rats who don't study Russian Literature(you kidding me?). This is not about siding with the ghetto rats or the racist monster its about telling the truth that nobody is better then anybody not because of how they grew up or where they were educated.

This is about a racist bully who targeted a black guy who thought he had escaped being black because he went to Stanford. That's not smart, that's just plain dumb. Tiger, you listening?

Those are my thoughts as usual I invite yours.

RB v. The Death of Twitter

Real Brother here. Play Resumes. This one is about the recent IPO of Twitter which I was hopeful about at first because racists view these sites as evil-- they allow descendent points of view. When your argument is; the world was a better place when blacks were at the back of the bus, segregated and red-lined into perpetual poverty the chances of you fairly winning the debate are negligible.

So racists have adopted the mantel of; If you can't beat em' buy em' out which is exactly what they've been doing. We saw it with Blackvoices, purchased first by the racists at Tribune Entertainment owned by the Wrigley family then later by racists at AOL Time Warner who did the same thing with CNN when they saw the damage they were doing to the myth of white supremacy.

We later saw the demise of BET.com when Viacom bought the BET Network shutting down the website all together only to revive it without any message boards for two way feedback and dialog. Blacks moved our voices to the Huffington Post which I loved to death until one of the white administrators posted an interview with Scientist Stephan Hawking in which he opined if Aliens were to come from outer space to earth they would certainly be white as only whites would have the sophistication and intelligence to make the many light-years trip it would take to get here.

Hawking's offered an alien invasion would be nothing nice and pointed to how whites treated inferiors like blacks and jews as an example of what the aliens would do to us inferior humans.

I cried absolute BULL-ISH! That the assumption superior aliens would hate people based on their race and as such would destroy the best chance to survive the light-years that it would take to get to earth is a flawed theory.

Would the Adolf Hitler's, Stalin's or Bull Conner's(Mitt Romney's, Ted Cruz's) of the Klingon Empire really survive to the point to where they could lead an expedition into the future? Did our Nazi's and Dixicrats survive? No if they didn't kill themselves off the more reasonable people who weren't of Aryan descent did.

I countered that no, if indeed a far off civilization were to survive the millions of years that it would take to develop the technology to get here then most likely those individual's would not have the scorch and burn dumbest most violent survive mentality of white people but more likely would have a personality more like Mahatma Gandhi or Barack Obama as opposed to Charles Manson, the Klu Klux Klan or the Tea Party.

Shortly after presenting what I thought was a competent, reasonable argument I was banned from the Huffington Post which later was sold to the racists at AOL who had banned me earlier from Blackvoices which they had previously bought.

What the white idiots who purchase these sites don't realize is the only reason we go on them is because we can exercise our right to tell the truth and express ourselves without censorship or fear of repercussions. The minute we can no longer speak freely, we have no use for the site.

About dot com, My Space, Black Planet etc. all sites that in an effort to monetize had to trade the First Amendment rights of blacks in order to please white racists who made censorship of blacks or progressive whites-- seen as sympathetic to blacks-- a condition of sale. Purge the site of the very people who made the site popular enough for the Marxist Monsters to want to buy it in the first place.

So when Facebook bucked the trend of out right selling their site to racists I was intrigued. A public offering allows the upstarts to make their millions and blacks don't have to be censored in the process. Yet what we are seeing with Twitters IPO is they are still catering to who they assume are the people who are underwriting their launch, the Tea Party nuts who simply don't want anyone speaking out against their Marxist hatred of this President and Democracy in general.

Kerry Washington had her account suspended and while she's on Network TV Selling the black race out every Thursday she did support President Obama so I can see how they'd target her. I saw similar suspensions for Oprah and other prominent blacks who support President Obama.

One racist remarked our free speech means we can censor blacks who we don't think should have free speech. I thought that was dumb but I took it to mean that free market capitalism means if they have the money they can decide who speaks and who doesn't which is totally antithetical to the spirit of both commerce and the First Amendment.

In conclusion, Twitter will go the way of the Huffington Post, Blackvoices & BET dot com in that if blacks aren't allowed to post freely on those sites then we won't patronize them. If we aren't on the site the racists won't be there either because they won't be able to bully, threaten us or badger us with their talking points and racist insults about blacks starting Slavery in Africa and how we're the racists for opposing white racism. To that I say R.I.P Twitter. Come on Oprah, Magic, somebody[black] we need you now more than ever.

Those are my thoughts, as usual I invite yours.
