Michael Imhotep - Kwanzaa, Culture and the Era of Donald Trump / Body Parts Brokers and the Legal Trafficking of Poor People's Bodies in the U.S. - In the first hour our Brother who is a master historian as well as a popular webcaster, shares numerousn insights into the evolution of the Kwanzaa celebration and the role it has in shaping cultural values and reconnecting us to our African civilization. This is a wonderfully complex narrative and our interaction takes the discussion to a whole new level. In the second hour, in contrast to long promoted conspiracy theories about body snatchers stealing organs from unwitting victims, today's recanting of body parts marketing is solidly grounded in verifiable research. The relationship of these "tissue brokers" to poor families who are stressed to pay for funeral services, has led to deals with body parts brokers and mortuaries that trick us into donating the bodies of our loved ones to corporations who can make many thousands of dollars cutting up those bodies and selling them to universities, research corporations and virtually anyone who wishes to buy body parts.
