SORT BY Relevancy
Modern means of communication has turned the world into a global village, where everyone in the world is our neighbor. Some people are the type of people you wouldn't want as neighbors. You know who they are - loud, ignorant, destructive, disrespectful, out of control. When we think of traveling to enjoy another part of the world and experience the culture, there are some places in the world we would love to be, the people seem interesting, the entertainment enjoyable, the way of life seems comfortable, and we could feel safe. But what does the rest of the world see when they consider traveling to the inner cities of America? The world loves our music and dancing, but what about this image of excessive crime? This week, we'll talk to journalists and image makers who are examining the global impressions of African American culture, and how that affects the economy in the inner cities. Today we'll talk to members CAAAP, Chicago Association of African American Photographers, whose mission is to capture images that define the history and culture of African American people. Our guests are photographer Deleshia Kinney who is working on a new photography book on African American women and beauty of their natural hair, and Curtis Kojo Morrow, artist, photographer and author of the books "What's A Commie Ever Done To Black People?" and "My Sankofa."
Listen to The African History Network Show Show, Thursday, Dec. 26th, (Special Time) 10:00pm-12:00 midnight EST. We'll discuss "What Is Kwanzaa: Reconnecting African-Americans To African Culture for Self-Empowerment".

My mouth hangs opens as I write this program description after watching the news and clips are people being punched in the head by black teens and knocked out. It is a "game" that is spreading worldwide. It some cases in New York the victims have been exclusively Jewish.
There is no denying that African American culture is pop world culture. All the influences, from the music, dance, fashion, and slang eventually, end up in the mainstream worldwide. For decades the "best" of the culture has defined American culture and ultimately the world's pop culture. But unfortunately the "worse" of what is viewed to be of that "culture" is also spreading... From sagging pants, and now the "knockout game"? Like sagging, where people of all ethnic groups, ages, and sexes are have adapted this unusual way of wearing pants, are same going to begin punching heads worldwide? Culture is active. It is the expression of a people. However, should the actions of a few represent a culture? I think not. But the problem is that these actions become replicated and copied until it is viewed as part of the culture. It is time for people, particularly from African American culture, to speak out and put a stop to what can eventually end up defining that culture.

Rape culture is a phrase used to describe a culture in which rape is pervasive and normalized due to societal attitudes about gender, sex, and sexuality.Examples of behaviors commonly associated with rape culture include victim blaming, sexual objectification, trivializing rape, denial of widespread rape, or refusing to acknowledge the harm of certain forms of sexual violence that do not conform to certain stereotypes of stranger or violent rape.
Most of us have heard about the 16 year old girl named Jada that spoke out about her rape. She was drugged and sexually assaulted at a house party. She didn't know it happened until pictures and video surfaced on social media. There was one person that admitted his involvement to the alleged rape from his social media post. We decided with this information that he had to be exposed but that was met with anger and even threats. The people was laughing at this young girl but got upset when one of the people involved got his twitter and facebook shutdown. Houston Police claim they have strong leads but they are dragging their feet to arrest the suspects.
