3 04 2011

Ralph Waldo “Petey” Greene ( January 23,1931- January 10,1984) was an African American radio, television, and media personality, activist and hero. As a radio disc jockey, Ralph Waldo “Petey” Greene Jr. was a beacon of societal truth for two decades in the black community of Washington DC Petey wasn’t afraid to “tell it like it is” as he spoke out about social injusticies and championed racial pride and equality during a time of radical change in America. “Petey”Greene was born and raised in Washington, DC His childhood was spent at 23rd and L Streets NW in an era of depression and poverty. He was raised by his maternal grandmother, Maggie “A’nt Pig” Floyd, and attended Stevens Elementary School. He dropped out of high school in the eleventh grade and enlisted in the US Army. His tour of duty sent him overseas to fight in the Korean War before being discharged in 1953 for drug abuse. Upon his return home he began to drink heavily. In 1960, he was convicted of armed robbery at a small grocery store, and imprisoned at Lorton Reformatory with a ten-year sentence. While in prision, Petey began to hone his skills as a disc jockey in Lorton’s work program. Using the PA system, he was allowed twenty minutes each morning and evening to address his fellow inmates. His garrulous delivery, infused with the flavor of the street, resonated with the inmates. Captilizing on his trusted voice, Greene persuaded a fellow inmate to climb to the top of a water tower to threaten suicide so

@klastiaan Lol, It’s always the white people who take offense. Everytime I smoke a J with my friends we always talk about racism and how most black people could care less about racism because they have bigger things to worry about than a couple of words. ((They are black, I am white.))

I disagree. If someone insults you and it doesn’t bother you, it’s still an insult.

I do agree people have the freedom to not be bothered by racism. It’s like being offered a glass of wine, it only affects you if you drink it…

But… I guess it’s easier said than done to ignore racist remarks/bias almost EVERY DAY of your life. You’d need an elephant skin not to be bothered by that.

(for the record, I’m white)

How do you keep a people down? You ‘never’ let them ‘know’ their history.

The 7th Cavalry got their butts in a sling again after Little Big Horn, fourteen years later, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. If it wasn’t for the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers, there would of been a second massacre of the 7th. Read, and visit site/history, rescue at pine ridge. com

“Japs” is racist. I am Japanese, it is racist.

Just thought I’d let you know.

Thanks. Respect

Japs is about as racist as the word negro. Neither of which are racist. This comes from a WASP who travels to japan with black people 😛

“Japs” is a racist term. I’ll respect his culture, but he should respect Japanese people and not say a racist term like “Jap”.

Peace. Good

Someone that’s never shot a gun before just ran up on the deck and started firing a sophisticated anti-aircraft weapon? I call bullshit.
