  1. I would appreciate it if BAW would stop with the duplicate stories. Sometimes you duplicate the same story not twice, but 3 times in a newsletter. Very annoying! As if your newsletters are not long enough. Please stop.

  2. Hey Tom! Roland was 100% on point with his commentary today when talking about the fallout from the Cook County prosecutor’s office dropping the Smollett matter.

    Who’s in charge of Black Twitter? It should be monitored white supremacist and racists are making horrible comments about Black people and getting away with it. How do you have an platform and no one monitors it

    Your radio show, broadcasts, reflect an appalling ignorance of the Kehillah of the old world (Europe) and the Kehillah of the new world (U.S.A.); i.e., the Zionist Federation. Check out the
    7th Protocol, http://www.biblebelievers.org.au/ij_ch7.htm; and the Subverted Nation, http://www.subvertednation.net/jew-lists/jews-in-government.

    “We, the Jewish people, rule America, and the Americans know it!” On October 3, 2001 Ariel Sharon, the prime mister of Israel, thereby took credit for the bombing of the World Trade Center by agents of the Mossad and members of the Israel Defense Force on September 11, 2001 with the help of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, and Condoleezza Rice.

    “Play along with us or we will kill you politically or literally.” AIPAC has no qualms about openly threatening and coercing all of our duly elected/appointed representatives and Americans at large in such a fashion as it is an unregistered agency of the government of Israel, the “Jewish” government of the United States, and the Zionist Federation.

    Do you really believe that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, or any of the other egocentric zionist with dual citizenship in the Republican Party and the Democratic Party, are genuinely concerned about the welfare and the security of goyim, christians and gentiles, throughout the United States? Assuming that you do based on the tenure of your broadcasts, I’ve got news for you: If Nancy, Chuck, or any other zionist with dual citizenship ever becomes president of the United States or even remotely as influential and powerful as the president of the United States, you, your staff, and all your likeminded listeners and admirers will rude the day you were born in due course. For they are in truth more agents/representatives of “the Jewish people” and “the Jewish government of the United States” than duly elected/appointed representatives of all the people of the United States of America.

  5. It’s ironic that the Republican party icon from yesteryear Ronald Reagan said during the 1980’s that Gorbachev should “tear down that (Berlin) wall,” but now that party’s current icon is calling for the building of a wall on this country’s border!

    Hello, I’m writing to ask that you remove R. Kelly’s name and birth date from your “This Week in Black History: January 5-11” listing. Although it was published in 2014, at that time we were all aware of the heinous acts committed by Kelly. He doesn’t deserve to be honored here, or anywhere – do the right thing and take his name down.

  7. Ciscerly K Runnels on said:

    Tom, I am confused about the comments made between you and your guests/co- host this morning. You did take part in the R. Kelly documentary regarding the alleged abuse of young women. One co host said that the girls were there for a check. You did not respond. I find it disappointing that its assumed that their reasons for coming out is assumed that its money. Why is that statement not considered alleged as well. The language that people have used to describe these young woman has been disgusting to say the least. What is your position Tom on what the co-host said? I assumed that you were advocating for these ladies. So to not say anything to the co host is confusing to me.

  8. BAW-your drop down banner is annoying. If you try to close it on your phone, the video plays with sound blaring. Also, do something about your phone version, it always has spamware and redirects you to a spam site. Please block the racist user MACDADDY.

    Good day king brethren, my name is Zion aka Sion Mangione on facebook. I love your truth, in other words no watering down this illegal hostile administration, overflowing with criminals and feline. I see that you are coming to Charlotte NC, I’m in the process of launching my show on Access TV, my focus is independent artists : My passion is domestic violence as I am a survivor, advocate, activist and I provide peer support. I also am against abuse of power as that is a way of silencing the people from revealing truth especially when it is in regard to our self serving elected officials. Anyway that’s all, I would really love to interview you when you arrive in Charlotte, I will definitely support the show at the comedy zone by purchasing a ticket. I share alot of your facebook post in the past however presently I have been tuning in on the tele as you were recently on the view. Because we are representing the people I need your voice to continue motivating the people to vote. Our lives truly depend upon it more now than ever

    My name is Q. Wright the name of the school is called St. Lucie Christian Academy located in Ft.Pierce FL Good evening I just spoke with you this is the video of some over aged kids being racist to African American children at football practice. My son was at football practice and he was not supervised there was suppose to be a coach but turn out he was a volunteer but he was not supervising the children. The African American children was locked out side in the hot 95 degree heat with no water or anything. Me and another parent knocked on the door for 15 min before the door was opened. The African American kids was called the N word and also was threaten that the white kids told them they will kill them and get away with it. My son called me begging me to pick him up from practice because the white kids punched a lil African American boy in the face and kicked my son. Because my son hit the boy back they kicked my son out of school for 10 days. Saying they need to investigate when I have the video to show the proof of what happened. I feel like it’s racism and it need to be told and I want help now. There’s more parents that’s ready to take this to the news

    Mr. Joyner, Sir I need a address to send you a box. I sent it to Orlando to the family reunion it didn’t get to you personally.

  14. I wrote the following poem last week about the Omarosa situation. I was pleasantly surprised to see a click of Mr. Hughley almost quoting verbatim, one of the lines I had penned. Just goes to show that maybe great minds think alike.


    She said you were her mentor. You said you were her friend.
    Who would have guessed this is how the relationship would end?

    As your real-life apprentice, she studied fifteen years,
    Perfecting your craft, The Art of the Deal.

    “I’m fired,’ you say.Oh, my! That can’t be.
    I got something in my back pocket. You just wait and see.

    Innuendos, threats; low-key intimidation.
    Talks of sullying her name; ruining her reputation.

    Just go away; stay as quiet as a church mouse.
    Cause you rode this train all the way to the White House.

    You can live here, you can live there, or just about anywhere.
    It’s all up to you,see, we really don’t care.

    A few personal appearances, would that be okay?
    Sign this agreement and get this fat payday.

    Remember, keep your mouth shut and don’t say a word
    About the things you’ve seen and the things you’ve heard.

    “Not hinged, not fit,” was her quick retort.
    Those nefarious thoughts he had better abort.

    Accusations of epithets, racist in tone.
    She finally spoke truth to what we had already known.

    “A low-life; a dog,” from the Commander-in-Chief!
    Clutching my pearls in utter disbelief.

    A stitch in time, might’ve saved nine.
    Why you have to call her a canine?

    THAT canine got your head in a fog.
    We call that kind of canine a BULLDOG.

    Many would’ve never given her a second look.
    Now, she got the leader of the free-world shook.

    Clarifications, misunderstandings, and statements to tweak.
    With changing of stories; back-pedaling and misspeak.

    Undeniable, undisputed; that means it’s a fact.
    Ms.Newman has audio, so she can clap back.

    Surreptitious recordings of many on staff.
    A few have been released, but that ain’t even half.

    Dropping more remixes than Lil Wayne and Drake.
    Letting everybody know her news ain’t FAKE.

    You were her example, and she learned quite well.
    This lady is no fool, as I’m sure you can tell.

    She mastered your game, no more need to rehearse.
    She followed your playbook, both letter and verse.

    Unapologetic, unwavering, fearless, and bold.
    It’s painfully obvious, “Revenge is dish best served cold.”

    Understandably upset, sending abhorrent tweets.
    Like it or not, Ms. Newman has All the receipts.

  15. All the inventions are wrong. No black man nvented the traffic light nor anything else we use today. It’s nothing to be embarrassed about. I’m white an Albanian and my people haven’t invented anything in our existence. That dosent mean that Africans in the future will not invent anything. The reason why whites invented all the technological gadgets we use today, was all because of necessity. The cold countries had no sun and harsh weathers. They had to learn how to control environments so they can farm and heat themselves up. While the countries like Africa and Latin America never struggled because had plenty full sun and all the food in the world lol and only one season, it was always summer. While the european counterparts died if they didn’t prepare for winter. Struggle made the white man more diverse and versatile, hence all th technological advances. I think it’s real low to give false information like this website does. Misleading people and misfiring then is the worst enemy. Keep it real y’all.

    I want to comment on an ideal of my own thoughts, that has been on my mind quiet a while, I want to share my thought with the black america web family, my thought and ideal is that I believe in my heart, that we as all america should consider this, necessary and very important change, It’s time that we the people but a stop to this humiliating name that for centuries we have been calling the home in “our”Nation’s Capital “The White House”,to me this implies ownership of our Great Country, the U.S.A. as a white people house, and not a house for all American Citizens who has legal Citizenship and who reside, here in America. Please share my opinion, discuss this in the Senate, and house of Representative, our legislative branches,etc. may this is our solution for racism, segregation, discrimination,bigotry and prejudice, in our white we should welcome it to all the American Citizens who are here legally to feel welcome to run for the Office of the President of the USA, let’s stand as a united People, We the People,by voting for this, noble change, if the President can change his Air Plane he can also change the name and title of the name for the “White House”. this should be considered: and I’m proud to say: “The Peoples house, The house of the Peoples, or The house of the Citizens, etc…these are my opinions, what’s yours?

    Re: Senior Bishop Walter L. Dixon, Sr., Condolences Goes out to the family, friends and love ones, regarding the Death of Joseph W. Jackson.
    Official Press Release: Senior Bishop Walter Dixon, Sr., of Sandy Springs, GA and former Senior Vice President of Operations & Corporate Affairs of Joe Jackson Productions Hollywood, California(in the mid 80’s). My condolences and prayer for Kathryn Jackson, and the Jackson family over the death of the musical patriarch and entertainment Business Manager, Mr. Joseph W. Jackson.
    I have known Joseph, Kathryn, Janet, LaToya, Jermaine and Michael for over (33) years. It has been a pleasure to have work with Joe. The trust that Mr. Jackson placed in me will never be forgotten. If Joe was still here, I would tell him again that I am thankful and appreciative of the opportunity that he gave me. He taught me some of the ropes of the entertainment industry and allowed me to meet many high level executives and other individuals in that field of work. Mr. Jackson was one of the finest individuals to have known and work with. The opportunity and responsibility he trusted in me in handling the business affairs of his daughters Janet and LaToya will always be treasured. To the Jackson family, Joe is in a better place now.
    I trust this prayer will bring each member of the Jackson family some healing. Regardless of what people may say, remember the good times of Joseph’s life and always know Joseph Jackson, is now with our Father in Heaven.
    We thank you, Lord for the faith of all who have gone before us, through their encouragement to their families. Many may not have agreed with everything Mr. Jackson said or did in this life, but none of us are perfect. I do thank “Our Lord Almighty” for the good things Mr. Joseph Jackson achieved through God’s grace because God sees and know the best in us.
    Merciful Lord, who art the strength of sufferers and the comfort of those who are heavy of heart. We ask that you hear the prayers of all who cry unto thee in their troubles; relieve the distressed, uphold the fainting, relieve the suffering, console the sad, and soothe the family and friends of Mr. Joseph W. Jackson.
    O Lord, your wisdom is beyond our understanding. I ask that you surround the family of Mr. Joseph W. Jackson with your love and grace, that they may not be overwhelmed by their loss but have confidence in your goodness, and strength to meet the days to come. May our Lord Jesus Christ be near the family and allow your angels to surround them and be a defense about them. As time goes by, allow your healing power to refresh them, preserve them, guide them and bless them.
    We remember Mr. Joseph W. Jackson now with great memories and forgive him of his faults. We remember him with gratitude and we bless your name. His memory is and will always be a blessing to us forever. Life is fleeting and yesterday he was with us and now he is gone from us. Thank you Lord, for all those who cared for him and labored with him; we pay tribute to his memory.
    May we prove worthy of carrying on the tradition of our faith for the burden of his family is now heavy. We give you thanks that he now lives with you. We thank you for blessing the world with Mr. Joe Jackson and all that he contributed to society. Thank you for the strength, tenacity and wisdom that you imparted unto him to create a family of winners with the gift of music and harmony that will last forever. Thank you for your servant, Mr. Joe Jackson, that you allowed to grace us for the length of time of 89 years. We ask that heaven and the angels welcome him with open arms and the music of heaven surround him with a heavenly melody and composition greater than he could ever conceive.
    We praise you God that his spirit is alive forever more in your kingdom. We thank you that Mr. Joe Jackson has now been reunited with his son, Michael Jackson, and they delighted to see each other again. Let us remember and thank you Father, whom we worship for making us your children by grace and for sustaining us with your love and grace in this life. We thank you, Lord, that you are present wherever we have gathered. We thank you, Lord, for the pardon of our sins and we look forward for the day that we are joined again with family members gone before us. I ask for your mercy on us all and help us to treasure each other until the day you call us home. We will miss our dear brother, Joe Jackson and are gracious for the entire Jack family. Give them comfort, strength and healing.
    We will forever give you praise and this we ask in your son Jesus name, Amen.

    There is an article published in the U.S.A. Today by my grandson Louis Steptoe in reference to Father’s Day. It’s entitled “Father Figure Day”
    Louis is a Young 18 year old African American male, from Southeast D.C. His father was never there since the day he was borne. He credits his God father and Grandfather as male role models to help him nake it. He’s on his way to Syracuse College this fall.
    The Article is worth reading. Showing how othe black males, God fathers and Grandfathers are stepping up to save our young black males.

    Hi, I am a sorta young first time author and plan to be published next month July or at latest August. I am the father of five and fell in love with the art of writing. I first started writing to simply help pay off my student loans and quickly found a hobble that I will probably be doing for the rest of my life. I am simply trying to pay off debts more quickly as well as trying to gain maximum exposure for my works. My book is called Glendale’s Knight and will be available soon. Please any help or exposure or advice you could give would be greatly appreciated.

    Recently, D.L ? Made the comment about the best way too have a steak or a steak prepared was or is rare.
    Back , in the days of the romans or gothic days that was the trend .
    But , he went on to claim that black people have a higher rate of colon cancer, is because, we char our meats .
    Stupid and completely fause on both accounts!
    Any meats that are prepared half or one quarter cooked ?
    Is dangerous. It opens up that meat for worms and other germs .
    And the reason it wasn’t cooked completely back 800 years ago, is the simple fact that kings or royals didn’t have the teeth to chew their foods .
    So to tell the public that ” the best way to have your steak is rare ” is idiotic!

    I noticed that there are fewer uploads in the If You Missed It section the past 2 weeks. What’s going on? Wondering if it is a sign that eventually there will be no more If You Missed It followed by the final end to TMJS. I like to listen to as much as possible that I missed on the TJMS. I really liked it when it was possible to hear the entire morning show when it replayed every 4 hours, then they took that away. I am not able to listen to the show starting at 5 a.m.(CST) for 4 hours during the week.

  24. 1) Add 30 million Black Folks
    2) Every one buys 1 share ($57.68) of Starbucks Stock for each member our immediate family
    3) Guess who now has controlling shares in Starbucks NASDAQ: SBUX — us
    4) We take over the board and elect our own to run the company
    5) our board members (who work for us) set the policy
    6) Problem solved
    7) Rinse and repeat.

  25. I am a parent with a 21 year old son who has autism. He was diagnosed at 4 years old in West Palm Beach, FL. He is high function however, I believe that he would have been better off by being diagnosed much later. If I wrote a book it, they probably make it a movie. It would tell the truth about all the road blocks. The early diagnosis for a high functioning minority child with autism is a huge mistake.

    I am a 60 yr old “white” woman that has been listening to Tom Joyner since I was a teenager growing up in the Chicago suburbs. I love the dialogue he has, not only w/Sybil, but also all the guest hosts. However, I do have an issue w/ the fact that the broadcast is becoming more and more racist. Usually the first words out of Tom’s mouth are “what color was he/she?”. If you’re trying to promote racial unity, which I think you used to do at all times, why always break things down like that. I also noticed you give “no-to-less than none” air time if there is a “black shooter” that kills or injures white people. I love your show, I think both you & Sybil are coming from a good place, but please –you have become divisive in your own right–, just like someone we all know and are embarrassed to call “President”…

    Starbucks is the least of my concerns right now. Let’s talk about something different and it’s about something I heard earlier on your show as I was driving to a meeting on HIV prevention and education. It was both insensitive, ignorant, misguided as well as dangerous to equate the spread of HIV the aliens to Ebola and other communicable diseases. There was nothing funny nor comical about it, in fact I was quite angry by it. Comments like that and mindset in the black community are the reasons that the BLACK community has the highest rates of newly diagnosed HIV cases. That’s in both male and females. It’s mindsets like that that create that kind of environment because people in the black community are scared to discuss it.

  28. Months before the shooting an app I play had a names of the characters that you used to play. The names were were turning up as people I heard of before. Some my kids teachers and some in a FBI civilian investigation dept possibly. One of the names was Stephon Clark and another Zoe Clark… they rent rooms to people at studio 55 / paladin security and work with Sacramento/ Placer Sheriff’s to put voice in peoples heads via (voice to skull torture) I’m credible. Look into it. The voices are real. The science has been proven. He may have been murdered intentionally or assinatated. Possibly framed. It was a fall out 4 app.

    Did we miss something about Roland’s guest and voter suppression/fraud? A tax frauder goes to jail, rights not restored and she register to vote, goes to vote, name not found, sent provisional ballot, arrested for voter fraud. The reason I ask is because a person whose civil rights had not been restored (10 year wait period) is ineligible to vote, right? And, using a person who has committed fraud before might not be the best example.
