Joe Madison I like your show, & very much appreciate what it is that you do. You're providing a much needed service to our people. With that said, the way you disrespect many of your callers by cutting them off, over talking them, and yelling at them as if they're children really disturbs me. You often times come off as a condescendingly arrogant cry baby that can't have their way. Which sometimes devalues your valid points. No one is perfect. Therefore I understand that we must take the good with the bad. Overall I'm on your side. I just feel as though I must share my thoughts with you in hopes that you're constantly interested in improving the quality of your show.
Much respect to you and yours!

Mr. Joe Madison I have boobs. I am wanting to apply to try out to become a Seal once it opens to women. I was an Olympic qualifier in the javelin throw and three years ago sumo deadlifted 350 lbs at 125 pounds, at 5'11 feet tall. My father told me I should not because I should not have men worrying about me while they are trying to do their jobs. My father has never been a chauvinist, he has supported me in all my goals and hopes and wants. I think there my be some sort of neurological defect with these men, and I am serious; for my father has never been a chauvinist in how he has treated me as his daughter. Is there a way I can get a tape to give to my father of the conversation you had this morning on womein the military. I had to park on the side of the road because I was so overcome with emotion at how intelligent you and these military men are, and your conversations. It made me believe that some people have all five senses plus a brain working in full function again. I am adamant at receiving a reply to this message on how to find or obtain a taping of this conversation this Wednesday morning. Please respond. I thank Jesus and any other God or Gods or Goddesses or Yeezuses up high for you every day, Julia

On behalf of the Atlantic Coast Region of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, I wanted to say thank you for your words of wisdom this past weekend in New Jersey. The brothers and sweethearts are very fired up to get to work and improve our communities. The members are also inspired to learn more about their history and thus make an impact on today’s current obstacles that the Black community faces. You gave a very real perspective that emphasized that our work continues especially for this new generation. As a result, we further realize that the energy we put towards our celebration is the same urgency necessary to serve others on campus, at work, and in our own neighborhoods.
As a huge fan of your show and your work, I considered it an honor to speak with you personally and get some insight on pain passion and purpose. This was a very pivotal experience for me personally and I will never forget your advice. I’m a firm believer that God brings people together to carry out his will and I hope that this is the start to a great working relationship. With that, God Bless you and your family and I wish you the best in your future endeavors!

P.S. Next time I’m in Washington, I will definitely pay you a visit!

As a long-time listener, thank you for all that you, Mrs. Madison and the rest of your team do in bringing information *AND SOLUTIONS* to your listening audience around the world.
"What are you going to do about it?" To this question, I have sent the statement below to both the CNN and the Fox News networks. Of note, the bracketed statement at the beginning of the 2nd paragraph was sent only to CNN. However, everything else was identical:
Kudos to the FBI and all law enforcement officers whose efforts have resulted in the video tape showing the two suspected perpetrators of Monday’s horrific terrorist act in Boston. I also pray blessings, safety and peace upon the families of all of the victims.
I am, however, struck by how,[except for an instance during Erin Burnett’s broadcast tonight (between 6p and 7p C.S.T. on both the televised and Sirius/XM CNN broadcasts)], there has been a reluctance to identify the suspected perpetrators as “white males”. This catches my attention because of the rapidity and surety with which this network “ticker-taped” the description of the presumed perpetrator as “dark-skinned male with a foreign accent” within fewer than 24 hours of the bombings. Now, more than 72 hours have passed; more physical and video evidence have been found and released; and, there seems to, only now, be a caution in identifying the potential ethnicity of the perpetrators. If only that same caution and cultural sensitivity had been exercised during the first 24 hours, when less time had passed and less evidence had been collected.
Despite my wife and me being Black physicians rearing a Black child in Texas (where we, ourselves, were reared in Mississippi), we remain keenly aware that such media-wide assertions on ethnicity with limited facts (or, in this case, the *ABSENCE* of a media-wide assertion in the *PRESENCE* of newly-released video) can have consequences for our child. As for this particular case, we look forward to seeing the perpetrators caught; seeing justice served; and knowing that (at least for now) our child (or, anyone with children who look like ours) just might not be subjected to unwarranted scrutiny and suspicion.
Again, Mr. Madison, thank you for all that you do.

Good morning Mr. Madison,
I hope all is good with you and yours. My name is Kenneth Vanwright and first I want to tell you I am a fan of your Sirius XM show. I have a regular 9-5 job, which I am grateful for because it keeps a roof over me and my kids head, but my passion, (and I believe the gift God blessed me with) is creativity.
I have always been fascinated with cartoon animation and I created a series based on community activism. This cartoon series was created in hopes of depicting solutions for bullying, teen suicide and other problems that plague our community. The main character "Old Skool " reminisces about "how it was back in the day" and translates these philosophies so the "New Skool" generation can relate and adapt.
Some of the subjects covered in the series relate to ‘Teen Suicide’, ’ Bullying, ‘Peer Pressure’ and ‘Taking back the Neighborhood’
I reached out to a few of our community leaders about the series in hopes that they would guide me in presenting it to the public. Some did give me contact info (email) all of which I followed up but never got a response. The others would not give me the time of day. I find it hard to understand how they, as “leaders” can run to a negative situation (to exploit it) but will not do the same for something positive going on in the same community.
I decided to post them up on YouTube in hopes they could help somebody. I have gotten many positive email responses. I am sending you the link to the two episodes I have posted so far in hopes you can view them and share them with your listeners.

Mr. Madison (and company), I love the show. My fiancée and I rarely miss it, although I must confess we are both retired from public service careers and don't usually get on the bus until halfway through the ride. We thoroughly enjoy the history lessons and congratulate you on the profile of Ms. Fanny Lou Hamer who I had the honor of seeing speak in person while I was a student at Shaw University in Raleigh, N.C.<br />
Sir, as a fellow "Baby Boomer", I feel your pain. As a child, I saw the images of Emmett Till in Jet Magazine. I remember car rides from New Jersey going south when meal and bathroom breaks had to be taken before we crossed the Mason/Dixon line where common amenities would either be refused, or we would be directed to the rear entrance. I remember as a teenager having a fight with a fellow student who happened to be white. There were very few non-white teachers in the "liberal North" in those days and the adults made more of it than we, the combatants, did. (In truth, two teenage boys had a disagreement that turned physical; after which we became friends. I bought my first car from him, the best used car I ever had.) The adults accused me of trying to start a riot and I was branded a troublemaker. <br />
Thanks to the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, I went to college. I remember when Martin Luther King, Jr.; Malcolm X; and Muhammad Ali were mostly disapproved of. I remember the assassinations of the Kennedys, Malcolm, Martin and others and I can't help but wonder if seeds were planted that taught the young that murder is the way to solve problems. I remember the urban "riots" and campus demonstrations, the Weathermen, the SLA--the black and white "revolutionaries". I remember the "Law and Order" backlash which ushered in Nixon, Ford, Reagan and the first George Bush, who painted with the same brush those seeking redress of legitimate grievances and those who were self-serving criminals with allegiance to nothing but their own interests. (Although, giving credit where it's due, affirmative action started under the Nixon Administration.) During the time of these Republican Presidents, some hard-won court battles were rendered essentially moot because legal-aid and other programs (designed to help those, black and white/male and female, without financial means or political power to secure even a chance at justice) were de-funded. Meanwhile, there was more and more deregulation and tax breaks for big business and the financially well-off. <br />
Gun ownership became more popular after the "riots" of the late 60s when suburbanites feared they would be overrun. However, when the Black Panthers urged blacks to arm themselves for self defense, legally and publicly brandishing firearms, President Reagan used his "bully pulpit" (as you, Mr. Madison, have aptly pointed out) to bring about more strict gun control laws. Time marched on, the "Revolution" indeed became televised as notable targets were killed or imprisoned, those who had obtained good-paying jobs fled the cities (until they got laid off) and the growing "underclass" was left to the neglected parts of the cities and regions like Appalachia. One couldn't turn on the TV without running into a "cop show", often glamorizing cops who didn't mind violating rights to "get the job done". Perhaps coincidentally, weapons on the street changed from "Saturday-night-specials" to handguns and long guns rivaling those used by the police and the military. Guns, drugs, and across-the-board minimization of the value of human life proliferated. <br />
In my opinion, we have lost the moral high ground. This nation seemed to have it after WWII, and the disenfranchised had it, for the most part, during the time when Baby Boomers came of age in the 60s. I believe that through tactics such as divide-and conquer, and repetition of fallacious ideas and principles without open and honest debate, tantamount to brainwashing, the "haves" have tricked and bamboozled the "have-nots". Why else would people of modest financial means vote against their own interests? I have heard anecdotes about blacks and whites mingling for the first time in their lives at demonstrations to avert cutbacks or at the unemployment office where the previously "favored group" was largely responsible for empowering those who initiated the cutbacks. I hasten to add, I have nothing against obtaining abundance through inheritance, or by working hard or working smart on a reasonably level playing field. But I believe true abundance involves taking a long-term rather than a short-term view. I am reminded of what you, Mr. Madison, said about Henry Ford. He came up with a way to mass produce automobiles and instead of greedily pocketing the profits in the short term, he paid his workers well (probably thereby having the pick of the most qualified workers available) and they were then able to purchase the cars they were making. Surely, this not only gave Ford more profit in the long run, but also helped the community at large. I think Mr. Ford believed in something and it paid off for everybody involved. I think people today need to believe in something that transcends their differences. I think people have to be reminded that united we stand, divided we fall; success is good, but greed is not good; admiration is good, but envy is not good; an appetite is good, but gluttony is not good; getting up after a fall is good, but jumping-off without a plan is not good; rest after work or at least trying to work is good, but wallowing in despair is not good; seeking fulfillment is good, but uncontrolled longing for anything is not good; and winning at any cost is not winning in the long run.<br />
I don't have all the answers. I think God didn't give anybody everything, but He gave everybody something. As you say, there's something everybody can do. Mainly, we must keep striving to do the best we can do, be the best we can be and keep the faith.

Thank you for playing the audio from the march from Selma on your radio show on Friday. I listen to your program as we travel to the Bahamas.
I appreciate hearing the passionate voices of the civil rights struggle. More folks need to pay attention to the sacrifice people have made so all can vote.
