    Good morning Tom,Cybal,Sherri and Kim. I am a mother of 6 children. I am working 2 jobs to provide for them. It has been hard to feed, clothe, and pay out utilites. We have been without light and gas since June. I have been using a generator to keep us at our house but even that is expensive because you have to put gas in it. Last January my family went through a fire where we lost everything. We were very blessed. However I couldn’t get my mail so I didn’t know it was time for me to recertify for pipp. I have to get both bills paid down to $300.00 before pipp will help me.Most days I am up at 5 am and don’t get back home until 11pm. I work at a school during the day and himehealth care at night. My light bill is 1556.55 and my gas bill is almost $10,000 dollars. I’m not sure if I have to pay the whole gas bill or if I just have to pay my poop default. Tom anything you can do to help us I will appreciate. I had 2 generators but the person needed there’s back. I have to boil their water to take a bath. That is fot 6 children and myself. Then once their water is boiled I iton their clothes. Then I get them dreesses. I have been washing their clothes at the laundromat but I some days I don’t have money to wash so they wear regular clothes to school. Well my daughter got a dress code detention They don’t have enough uniforms to wear all week. My kids are 14,11,10,9,5, and 15 months. Anything that you can do to help is greatly appreciated. I would like to remain anonymous Thank you so much

    I sent this email to my local Office of Registrar for Voters…

    I went to vote this morning and was concerned about the “set up” for voting at my local polling station. When I went in, there were lines separated by political party voting instead of JUST by last name. I believe this results in a type of “political shaming” as I noticed several persons in different lines doing what appeared to be scanning the opposite lines. I also noticed that the line with the least amount of voters in the line seemed to move the slowest.

    Maybe, at the next election, the lines can be notated by last name only and not refer to political party as has been done previously.

    Do you know why the polls were separated by political party instead of just by the initial of the last name? Separating by party affiliation seems to promote a sense of division among persons in the community.

    Feedback would be appreciated.

    Thank you for your time.

    This is the response I received..

    By the nature of primaries, voters must declare which party they are in at the polling place so precinct workers know which poll book to look in and which ballot to hand them. If a precinct has the staff to allow two poll workers to sign voters in, they will usually offer two lines to get people through as quickly as possible. There is only one poll book for each party, so that is the only practical way to split it. Otherwise, two poll workers might need the same book at the same time, and it would slow the process and make wait times even longer.

    I believe this is hogwash and is being used purposefully to deter some people from voting. I also noticed that ballots were given to people with only people in their political party for which they registered. What if they wanted to vote across party lines? This is not right. There are people that may belong to one political party that may wish to vote for someone else. THIS is how certain people are allowed to remain in office for so long. How can this be changed? Who do we contact to have this process changed before it is too late?

    Please do not allow this to be a reason NOT to vote. Voting is how we are made aware to be able to make a change.

Could you along with other leaders start a movement to start calling us what we really are Americans who are Black it can be turned around to Black Americans as The Godfather said say it loud I am black and I am proud also in passing I noticed this is called Black America Web not African America Web Thank You Very Much For Your Time

    Thank you Kim for trying to add another voice to the r Kelly topic. I understand that cybil and Jackie have a special hate for R Kelly but reasonable people should be able to discuss this without being told to be quiet or being made to feel silly or stupid because they have questions or do not agree 100% with your opinion of him

    Good Morning, I also listen to your show every morning. My question to you is why not Black Grand Mothers Matter, I know in a lot of single mothers household, It was that Grand Moher that mostly took care of the kids while the mother was working or involved with drugs,

    I listen to your show every morning with my headphones in my ear. I just wanted to say that you are wrong for playing “Booty Call”! Its taking ever ounce of control not to get up out my chair and start line dancing! LOL. I love your show and it makes my day, I was upset when they took you off our morning line up but I just go to Black America Web and stream it. Love you all and thanks for the entertainment

    Black women caught in the rain: Since I went natural, I don’t have to run from the rain anymore. I’ve learned that my 4C hair actually loves the water and rain is good for my hair.
