Prince Sefa-Boakye host of the Prince in The City Show talks about Money and Politics inside the Supreme Courthouse of The United States.
On each and every show, I don’t just provide you news in the City but current events around the world–and how they impact you and the world around you.
On this special segment, I talked about SCOTUS (Supreme Court of The United States) and its latest decision to strike down limits on individual contributions in political campaign races. To comment on the subject matter I invited UR radio show host Nathan Roman of “The Business Side of Sports.” But before we delved into this political story, I first spent some time to shed light on TED talk speaker Faith Jegede and her call to be extraordinary!
In a world that demands normality, Faith Jegede wants us to be extraordinary because the pursuit of normality leads to the ultimate sacrifice of potential, greatness, progress and change. And she explains this by sharing her personal story of growing up with two autistic brothers (named Remi and Samuel) who saw the world without prejudice. After watching this TED talk video, I said this to my audience:
“If that what it takes to make the world a better place, then we should all be autistic.”
To watch her TED talk go to: Motivation Mondays: Don’t Be Normal, Be Extraordinary!
Segueing back into politics, Nathan and I then discussed the latest Supreme Court decision to strike down limitations on individual contributions in political campaign races. While this was a shock for both us, we still had disagreements of how the end result of this decision would look like; I characterized this as an apocalypse while he didn’t. Nathan saw this as only increasing the amount of what donors can give.
Nathan believes in the power of education and communities–and says that people have to be educated before they vote for people who won’t serve their communities best. I, on the other hand, disagree and say that the people are educated but with the wrong information. This decision will make it easier for corporate donors and PACs to manipulate information in TV ads and funnel thousands of dollars to candidates that will serve their interests–and not the middle class.
(What I didn’t mention is that this decision will force middle class Americans and the working poor to stretch their money on campaign donations which the rich don’t need to. Independent voters will again be bombarded with TV ads and door-to-door campaigns that will try to persuade them of what is factual and what is false)

Early on Sunday morning, as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to visit the tomb. Suddenly there was a great earthquake! For an angel of the Lord came down from heaven, rolled aside the stone, and sat on it. His face shone like lightning, and his clothing was as white as snow. The guards shook with fear when they saw him, and they fell into a dead faint. Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying. And now, go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and he is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there. Remember what I have told you.” The women ran quickly from the tomb. They were very frightened but also filled with great joy, and they rushed to give the disciples the angel’s message. And as they went, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they ran to him, grasped his feet, and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t be afraid! Go tell my brothers to leave for Galilee, and they will see me there.” (Matthew 28:1-10 NLT)
Jesus Appears to Thomas
One of the twelve disciples, Thomas (nicknamed the Twin), was not with the others when Jesus came. They told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he replied, “I won’t believe it unless I see the nail wounds in his hands, put my fingers into them, and place my hand into the wound in his side.” Eight days later the disciples were together again, and this time Thomas was with them. The doors were locked; but suddenly, as before, Jesus was standing among them. “Peace be with you,” he said. Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and look at my hands. Put your hand into the wound in my side. Don’t be faithless any longer. Believe!” “My Lord and my God!” Thomas exclaimed. Then Jesus told him, “You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.” (John 20:24-29 NLT)
Faith Brings Joy
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (Romans 5:8 NLT)
Lord’s Suffering Servant
But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. (Isaiah 53:5 NLT)
God, ruler over the world and universe, heard the cries of Jerusalem and brought them a savior his son Jesus Christ! It was then that he sacrificed himself for humanity in order to rise again (on the third day) and defeat death and hell itself–the greatest feat that no man has ever performed.
While the world may forget his glory, his story still lives on! And his spirit and his peace will live inside those who seek it!
Glory to God! And Glory to Jesus Christ for showing God’s love to us–and for permitting us to live life with no fear of death! For we will rise too and join him in his kingdom forever and ever.
