In November 2008, Burton was told by station manager Jim Kozlowski that they were going iii a different direc tion with their format and her show was bt;:ing cancelled However, after meeting with Burton later, a compromise was agreed on and the show was kept on the Burton said she received a telephone call noon Friday from Kozlowski saying her show had been cancelled im mediately "I asked him what hap pened between last Saturday and today. He just said as we had discussed before, they were going into a more music forinat. I asked how the deci sion was made and told him I'd continue to do v.-hat I needed to do. n Burton said there are so many issues in the community that need to be talked about, but once again our voices are being silenced "It's not fair that other races can have their day, and African Americans can't have political discussions. I think it's an insult that a decision like this was made that Black people need to listen to music, instead of talking about what's going on in their lives Burton said listeners don't have to agree with her, but she should still have a right to be heard. "I listen to Rush Lim-baugh's show on occasion, but I don't agree with him. He talks about vital issues on his show that needs to be ad dressed." Burton said she thinks the new management at the sta tion is out of touch with the community and doesn't care what problems or concerns we have. "I think it was very unpro fessional that I was told my show had been cancelled over the phone, instead of in per son. I was not called into the station to talk about their de cision. I was never given an opportunity to defend my show". "Straight Talk was on the air because of my love for the community. I'ri1 going to make sure every group that repre sents the interestsof Black people has me in the audience. I won't be silenced." Kozlowski could not be reached for comment. Repo,rter Leon B.

Opinions expressed on editorial pages of this newspaper by Columnists or Guest Writers, do not necessan"IS' reflect the editorial stance of The Florida Sentinel Bulletin or the Publisher A Tale 01 Two High Schools . ''The school's culture is a force that unifies the student body." That's how the article began. It went on to say "the students at Riverview High School know how to turn a blood drive into a party." Then it added, "They also throw a mean Halloween bash for 4,000 kids each fall and blow away the competition with their theater productions." Indeed, "the 'View,"' as Riverview Principal Bob Hellmann calls his beloved, "A"-grade Hillsborough County high school, "also has an intangible characteristic. Students move among groups on campus with ease, a meshing of mostly middle class teens without the cliques that often divide high school students." Now, listen to an article written about Middleton High School, one of the so-called "View's" academic counterparts. A reporter writes, "At the start of the school year, Middleton High School alumni were jolted by the news that their school's performance was under the watchful eye of the state." Moreover, ''the State has graded Middleton with a 'D' each year, for the past five years and now is demanding improvement." Concludes the article, "Failure tc; boost test scores could result in the school's closure." So, let's compare the two schools. Opened in 1998, Riverview High School is older than state-of-the-art Middleton High School, opened in 2002. But statistics tell the tale. Out of a population of 2,154, 52.20% of Riverview's students are white; 21.36% are Latino and 16.39% are Black, with 33.94% economically disadvantaged and 12.40% with learning disabilities. Compare that to Middleton, whose population of 1,360 students is 12.43% white, 12.35% Latino and 70.29% Black with 73.46% economically disadvantaged and 21.69% with_learning disabilities. You do the math! Is this "separate, but unequal," all over again? You tell us! .. :::. -Stimulus.Package For Hope And Change Now that Bai:.ck Obama is poised to sign a to 3 million ..

Failing to admit that the current Stimulus Package is a W compromise initiative between Senate Republicans and 0 Democrats, Conservative Republican crickets are singing the same old "chirp," "Tax-break! Tax-break!"O President's oav In the past; President's Day was generally just a day off for federal employees. It's ironic though, that although it's supposed to the day that we honor past 'presidents, President Bara.ck Obama spent the day tackling the problems of the country: On President's Day, the banks are closed, the mail is not delivered, and the children are out of school. But, few know how the day came about. It actually started with the celebration of the country's first president, George Washington, who was on February 22, 1732. The' first celebration came about on his 10oth birthday. The next time the idea was conceived to celebrate a dent's birthday came about a : year after the assassination of President ,. Abraham Lincoln, who was born on February 12, 1809. His birthday was first celebrated in 1865. Although both' days were recognized as holidays, there was no designated day of the week set aside to celebrate the holiday. In 1968, Congress passed legislation to regqlate all fe. deral holidays, including .the birthday of President George Washington. The legislation required that all federal holidays be celebrated on a Monday. The legislation created a three-day weekend for all federal employees. Three years after the legislation was passed,; former. President Richard Nixon decided to combine the recog nition of. Presidents Washington and Lincoln and make President's Day the third Monday in February, regardless of the date of the. month. ... ;, President Nixon's actions also designated the day as the celebration of all United States presidents, both livinf and dead, regardless of when their actual birthdays came .. about. Only. four presidents, Washington, Lincoln, :Ronald Reagan and William Henry Harrison, were born in February. The month of November is the month .with the most presidential births, which are John Adams, Rutherford B. Hayes, Chester A. -Arthur, Theodore Roo. seve It, Dwight David Eisenhower and Jimmy .Carter.: _: .

'', ,._. in college, !'met the first Africans and Caribbean Blacks I had ever seen ; And I must admit I. was filled with mixed emotions ... pride, envy, curiosity and a slight bit of resentment . You see, that was around thetime I had read a newspaper article in the Baltimore Courier about how Black men dressed in African attire and speaking an African language had been served food in a white Southern restau,rant, while I was still marching in picket lines in Baltimore for the right to eat in a white restaurant in the shoppinf center near our college cam. pus. Africans, Canadian and Caribbean Blacks had always held a mystique for me. Iri fact,-meeting and getting to know them held some of the same feelings of "distance" and "distrust" that I experi-; ,, enced regarding whites dur-ing the early days of desegre gation. Imagine how surprised I was to discover that many Africans in America durinf the 196o's,;had been treated poorly by both Blacks as well as whites. Today, however, I believe people of color of African descent still experi ence a level of "distance" and "distrust" that must be over. come. Whether you are Haitian, Jamaican, Cuban, Puerto Rican,: Bra.ziliari, Virgin Islander or from some other nation or culture, if your skin is black,.'.in the words of Jamaican singer Peter Tosh, "yoti;re an African." .And unless you were born and raised in Africa, w.e are all practically of slave descent, Only those Blacks who can trace their ancestry to free Blacks who arrived in America as free men and can claim ancestry. Whenever I hear or read Harlem Renaissance poet Countee Cullen's "Heritage," (also known as "What is Africa to Me?"), I am deeply reminded that Africai s -;. everything to as is also America. .. Iadi . ed that even though we may : have been raised ina different :.culture, Africa is what binds us all together. Many native-born Black still feel jealousy that Mricans and Caribbean Blacks appear to have been accepted by America's white majority more readily than native African Americans. Secondly, some Blac. k Americans 'believe that Africa tis and Carib bean Blacks take jobs that should On Page 5 Therefore, we remind our readers not to listen to the "hype." After all, tax breaks to the rich have already led to massive unemployment, mortgage foreclosures, state, county and city employee layoffs, and loss of services.

No, public schools aren't as effective as they should be and yes, too many teacliers aren't as effective as they should be. Much of the blame can be placed on parents. Public schools have become dumping grounds. Parents bring their children to school their first day, get them regis tered and you don't see them any more for the remainder of the year. They won't attend anything at the school, regardless of how important it is. They attend PTA meetings, parents-teacher conference nights; discipli nary conferences, social activities, schoolprograms or sporting events. These. parents fully expect the puplic school to raise their children while they go about the busi ness of trying to enjoy their own personal life. When theydo come to school or on .the, phone, ,. . . -. so many parents will tell you that they can't do anything with their children at home. If you can't do anything with your own child, how do you expect the schools to be able to do something with your child? The question for the parents is, 'are you trying?' Wherein .it public schools have to take a:Il children, private schools can be selective. The schools have_ to educate all children. Private schools don't have that obligation. You pay money for your child to attend private schools. There, your child will .act right, you will attend school functions or they will kick your little angel's butts out qfthe school. . Public schools have to put up with you aitd your bundle of precious 'joy. I don't care how many F's they make, you still won't see .the parents or. guardians., Let the child go home and -say the teacher hit or cursed him or her. The parent is : at the school ready to kill somebody. . 1 They also expect their)l: children to receive good grades It doesn't matter that he doesn't study at home. It does not matter that the child never'does homework. It doesn't inatter that the child never even brings his books home: Yet; the parents are shocked. when the child makes a bad grade. What parents need to learn is that raising your child and educating him or her is a team effort between the par ents, the students the teacher and the school. It is extremely hantfor the 'school to educate your child 'w1thout your sin: . cere deqicated help. If parents will just attend the scho,ol, discipline the child, help the child, it would bt:friiuch, much easb ., er for the teacher.

Did 50 Cent Take Beet Too Far With Threat To OJ Khaled's Motheril It went deeper than rap, and in many people's minds, it crossed the line of hip-hop battling. On Wednesday, 50 Cent released a dis video on Thisis50.com called "A Psychic Told Me," in he threatens DJ Khaled -and his mother. .-. . In the clip; is. down in the studio, wlj.ting a poem, then the switches to a house that he claims belongs to Khaled's mom. Later, 50 says he knows where DJ Khaled lives. and all but takes responsibility for the DJ's car tires recently being slashed. Then the video shows -some men in Thisis50.com T-Shirts arriving at Khaled's mother's purported workplace. The woman they claim is the DJ's er is asleep at a desk, as the cameraman zooms in on photos of Khaled and Fat Joe. At the end of the video, 50 declares he has "less compassfon than the average human." He crum ples the poem he was working on, a Thisis50.com. logo comes on the screen and there is sound of gunshots. Viewers were left in a sfate of shock, as the clip seems to indicate that the beef between 50, Rick Ross and Khaled has taken an uglier turn. Meanwhile, both Khaled and Ross were in New York on Thursday, shooting a video that had nothing to 50 CENT' ... ,. do with hip-hop quarrels, but i.t1 fact promoted unity; The two Mirum hip-hop staples joined Fabolous, Ludacris and Juelz Santana for The-Dream's video .for th. e remix of "Rockin' Tliat Thang." On the set, Khaled refused to address the 50 issue. "I'm not. gonna him bait me," he said. But Ricky Ross had plerity to say on the latest round. "I'mma be honest; I didn't have a reaction," Ross srud. "Watching that, understanding the monkey, it's like its no threat whatsoever .... To me, it's a sign of reassuring you're people's. safety.
