Technical Issues

Problems listening to podcasts:

Some of our listeners have problems listening to our podcasts on the website players. Commonly, the player will play for a few minutes and then restart at the same point, never getting past a certain length of time.

This may be caused for any one of several reasons, such as a slow internet connection, a weak link somewhere between our servers and those belonging to the listener's ISP, or the anti-virus or firewall software on the listener's computer. See this article at the computerhope.com website for more information: Why does my download stop before it is finished?

Solution:

To resolve this issue, do not play our podcasts from the front page of the website or from the Podcasts page.

Instead, simply click the title for the podcast, which appears above the player. Once you are on the page for that particular podcast, the program you want to listen to will preload, and the program duration should appear in the player (for example, 1:30:25 rather than 00:00).

Once the program duration appears in the player, it is already downloaded to your computer and it should play uninterrupted.

Caveats:

Before playing another podcast, however, clear your browser cache (sometimes called "temporary internet files"). Often, browser cache is the reason why podcasts seem to get "stuck" at one place and restart from the beginning.

If these solutions do not work, you may have to download our podcasts and play them in a media player on your computer, rather than using the website players. You may download podcasts by right-clicking the file name found beneath the player, and choosing "save link as" or "save target as" on the pop-up menu.

Celebrating Real Black History (African Culture: See How They Run)

Warning: This video is graphic. It contains scenes of brutal sexual violence. This authentically represents the behavior of African negros wherever they exist outside of the rule of the White man's law.

In spite of the Hollywood propaganda, the ancient Greeks and Romans hardly knew the African negro, except perhaps as a passing spectacle in the desert or by the surviving population of mixed races in certain places in Egypt. One literary example which demonstrates the truth of this assertion is found in the Library of History, Book 3, by the ancient Greek historian Diodorus Siculus, whose work was published around 36 BC.

After describing the cultured people of Ethiopia, who were originally not black and who had many things in common with the rest of the civilized world, Diodorus says in Book 3 chapter 8:

"1 But there are also a great many other tribes of the Ethiopians, some of them dwelling in the land lying on both banks of the Nile and on the islands in the river, others inhabiting the neighbouring country of Arabia, and still others residing in the interior of Libya. 2 The majority of them, and especially those who dwell along the river, are black in colour and have flat noses and woolly hair. As for their spirit they are entirely savage and display the nature of a wild beast, not so much, however, in their temper as in their ways of living; for they are squalid all over their bodies, they keep their nails very long like the wild beasts, and are as far removed as possible from human kindness to one another; 3 and speaking as they do with a shrill voice and cultivating none of the practices of civilized life as these are found among the rest of mankind, they present a striking contrast when considered in the light of our own customs." (Library of History, 3.8.1)

What Diodorus described sounds exactly like what is seen in this video, or today in the streets of Philadelphia, Baltimore, Cleveland, Detroit and most other American cities on a regular basis.
