One of the criticisms of President Obama is that as the first African American president he"has not done enough for the Black community".  It's a complaint made about many African American politicians, regardless of office, and particularly when it comes to improving the economic issues facing the Black community, such as unemployment, low property ownership, and slow entrepreneurial growth.  On this special edition of Another View, we will explore the intersection of economics and politics, with Dr. Eric Claville, Assistant Professor and Director of the Hampton University Pre-Law Institute, and the co-host of the" Claville Report:  Policy, Law and Politics", along with guest Allison Jones, Assistant VP for Virginia Governmental Relations with McGuire Woods.  Join us for the next Another View, Friday, April 29 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!

We all know the obvious signs of  child abuse when we see it...whelps from harse beatings, cigarette burns, starvation, a filthy living environment.  But what about the subtle things...a disciplinary smack on the bottom, or yelling at your child when he/she does something wrong...is that also child abuse?  And why is it that African American children are almost twice as likely to suffer from abuse than white children?  On the next Another View we'll get some answers from Dr. Michelle Clayton, a child abuse expert with CHKD, and Natasha Knight, a child advocate with Portsmouth CASA.  Plus, Lisa Godley tells the story of artist and comic book creator Kevin Roberts!  Join us for Another View on Health, with Cardiologist Dr. Keith Newby, Friday, April 22 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!

Chief Tonya Chapman is the new police chief in the city of Portsmouth.  She's the first African American woman to hold the position.  Her last job was Deputy Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security, appointed by Governor McAuliffe in 2014. She joins the department at a time of racial strife in the city, low morale among police officers and a murder rate that continues to grow.  On the next Another View we'll talk with Chief Chapman about her speciality in community policing and her plans to make Portsmouth a safer place to live, work, worship and play.  Plus - Support What You Love - Another View! - by becoming a member of WHRV-FM.  Make your pledge of support this Friday, April 15 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!

What does it mean to be African American?  Does it mean that Black people are poor, unintelligent, lazy, criminal, incapable of raising a family?  Does it mean, as is suggested in a recent Washington Post article, that Blacks feel pain differently than Whites, therefore are treated differently by medical personnel?  Does it mean that genetically African Americans are superior in muscle mass and coordination, able to play sports better than those of other races?  That all Black women are angry and all Black men are worthless? On the next Another View, we'll talk about some of the prevailing myths about being Black in America, myths that unfortunately continue to strengthen during this political season,  with our Round Table pundits, Roger Chesley, Columnist, Virginian-Pilot; Carol Pretlow, Political Science Professor, Norfolk State University,  Bill Thomas, Community Activist; and guest pundit Delceno Miles, Owner, The Miles Agency.  It's all on Another View, Friday, April 8 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!
