Host Deardra Shuler features filmmaker Al Greeze on Topically Yours to talk about his film FRUSTRATED. See https://www.createspace.com/313679. Based on the article "Blame it on Rio," written by William Jelani Cobb (a professor of history at Atlanta's Spelman College), featured in Essence Magazine, the filmmaker traveled to Brazil to interview Black men re: their opinion on Cobb's primarily negative depiction. The article suggested black men travel to Brazil in droves to vacation and have sex with Brazilian prostitutes. Greeze spoke to African American men who live in and visit Brazil regularly.  Cobb's article spurred a lot of negative commentary about the disfunctional relationships between African American men and their women. This show invites Doc Stanley, Blakeradio's own sports host, educator Shareef Bailey who is writing his book "Rio in Retrospective: An American Story" about his time in Brazil, jazz vocalist extraordinaire Jann Parker, Sharon Harris, VP and  Associate Broker at Prudential Douglas Elliman, and listeners, to comment. Are relationships between African American men and women broken? What do each want from one another? The panel will discuss this and the article's validity. Do African American women turn their men off?  If so, how?  What do African American women want from their men? Do they feel abandoned by Black men?  Is money and education the main reason Black relationships breakup?  Do some women self-sabotage?  Any solution? These issues, et al will be discussed with Mr. Greeze and panel.
