Miami based Hip Hop superstar Rick Ross just dropped a verse on Atlanta-based artist Rocko’s track “U.O.E.N.O.,” that seems to clearly celebrate date rape.  Several voices have already spoken out about it.  But tonight as a Miami-based show, we want to have our say.  Don’t miss this segment.

Family!  It is that time again.  And times are really getting crazy.  Tonight:
1.  No Love in North Carolina?!?!?!
Last night, North Carolina passed by referendum a Constitutional Amendment that basically bans  Gay/LGBT marriages as well as Civil Unions between almost anybody.  Although the Amendment is not too much different than the one that passed in Florida, the news has been like a shot heard around the world.  Join us tonight as we get reactions North Carolinians on the ground, Wooten Gough (El Cambio), Rev. Jimmy Chalmers and folks from Southerners on New Ground. 
2.  EXCLUSIVE:  Marissa Alexander update
If you have been following us, you will know that we have been among the most faithful followers of the case of Marissa Alexander.  On Friday, she is expected to be sentenced to twenty years in prison for what she claims was self defense (where no one was hurt or killed) against an abusive spouse.  Over the past two days we have compiled a whole heap of evidence and interviews from Angela Corey, the prosecutor in the case (and in the Trayvon Martin case), Kevin Cobbin (Marissa’s attorney), Angie Nixon (Florida New Majority) and family and friends of Marissa Alexander.  If you haven’t heard about Marissa Alexander yet, it is time you heard now. And our show tonight will be the place to hear some of the most complete coverage on what many are calling one of the worst injustices in Florida’s recent memory.  To check our other coverage on Marissa’s case, please click here and here.

1.  When will it be spring in Syria and Bahrain?
The spirit of the Arab spring is definitely not over but the death toll is definitely growing higher.  We have heard a lot in the news about Syria, and almost nothing about Bahrain.  But what should people in this country watching the daily reports of death in Syria or the Bahrain media black-out think all of this?  Tune in as we talk about it…
2.  Celebrating Valentine’s when you are broke…
Nothing sucks more than being broke on holidays and sharing that broke-ness with people you love.  Just because Valentine’s day is commercial and excessive, it doesn’t mean that  you won’t catch hell for not celebrating it with your significant other.  As part of our ongoing, “when you are broke” series, we will talk a little bit about what to do for special someone with out spending so much.
3.  Cali’s Prop 8, America’s Valentine’s day, and a Florida love story…
With the news yesterday that a Federal judge in Cali threw out Prop 8, the ballot initiative turned law that outlawed same-sex marriages, a bunch of folks hit the streets celebrating.  But in Florida one couple is still dealing with the state law here and what trying to get married when the law says you can’t means, especially on Valentine’s day.  Tune in to hear their story.

WHICH IS MORE LEGAL…
GAY FOLKS GETTING MARRIED OR CIVILIANS FILMING COPS???

Well it depends on what state you live in.  If you live in New York, Gay folks can now get married, but you can still get arrested for filming the cops arresting somebody (like this).

But if you live in Florida, both could probably land you in jail.

Join us for the first episode of the second season of Let’s Talk About It! as we talk about Marriage Equality, Same Sex Marriage, Gay Marriage, living In sin or whatever the hell you call it…just tune in and call in!  Is the victory in New York a victory for you or a sign of the decline of Western Civilization?  What does it mean for other states like Florida?

Then…

In the past year, dozens of people have been arrested for filming the police while on duty.  Some like Anthony Graber, a sergeant with the Maryland Air National Guard, almost faced 16 years in prison just for filming police as they were pulling him over.  The story hit close to home in Miami when on Memorial Day weekend, Narces Benoit filmed police firing 100 shots into a car of a man who led them on a dangerous high speed chase. Benoit and his girlfriend were arrested, but later let go for filming what you see below (note: the film is intense).  Why are people being arrested for filming the police?  Is it people’s right to film the police while they are on duty or does filming the police make us all less safe?   Join us as we talk about two topics that hit at the heart of what rights we have and don’t have. 

TUNE IN!  CALL IN! LET’S TALK ABOUT IT!
