SORT BY Relevancy
These days the stories of racial injustice just don’t stop. At Dutchtown middle school in Henry County Georgia, two girls, one Black and one White, were accused of writing graffiti on the wall of a gym bathroom. The Black girl was punished far harsher than her White friend.
This type of biased treatment goes beyond race and has landed squarely in the realm of skin color. Yes, studies show that darker skinned girls are punished more severely than light skinned ones.
Obviously, students displaying ill behavior must suffer the consequences of their actions. But the punishment should be the same if the violation is the same. This injustice has been going on in greater society for far too long. The question is, will or should society sit idly by while these injustices are perpetrated on the youngest amongst us? What course of action should be taken to correct this great evil? These are just a couple of the questions that will be entertained in the Virtual Living Room.

Happy Festivus with collard greens and crumpets to our loyal listenership! Join us for a very special Grindhouse broadcast (The Comic Shoppe and Afronerd Radio at 6 and 7pm, respectively) when we welcome Jamie Broadnax from the stupendous and ever popular BlackGirlNerds.com website. Ms. Broadnax's BGN site serves as "a place for women of color with various eccentricities to express themselves freely and embrace who they are." And in perfect Yuletide fashion, not only will we discuss all things "blerdy" (from a woman's perspective) with Ms. Broadnax but we will also address additional pulp concerns: Sony's unsolicited email "hackathon is the gift that keeps giving; our impressions of the revelations from the fall finales of Arrow, SHIELD and The Flash; Comic Book Resources' The Mission column waxes about the physical changes of Amanda Waller and how that may translate on the silver screen and lastly, is there really only one Black owned comic shop (Third Coast Comics) in the U.S.? And do we need more?
And then there's Afronerd Radio at 7pm. Join Dburt and Captain Kirk as they unravel the following Luther-esque mysteries: the Ferguson aftermath spurs Black athletes to become politically active; is Geraldo Rivera correct about likening Black victimization to a form of urban suicide?; is hip hop artist, Jay-Z, the right police misconduct advisor for NY Governor, Andrew Cuomo; the new "Hands Up" anti-police rap video causes outrage and lastly, the minstrelsy continues with a new website entitled lightskinordarkskin.com that judges one's skin tone (really?). Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620. AGAIN, NOT THE SHOW TO MISS!
Please join us Sunday 10AM CST/11AM EST as we discuss negative, racist black stereotypes and the people who perpetuate them.
We will discuss the brilliant article written by Raina in depth.
Why is it acceptable in the secular community when negative stereotypes and caricatures of the black community (religious and otherwise) are presented to them?
Is it acceptable if black atheists perpetuate the stereotypes while attempting to pathologize the community that they claim that they want to help?
Is speaking at all white conferences considered activism nowadays?
Are black atheists silence on issues of racism, social justice, sexism, etc. being purchased with the promises of speaking engagements, etc.?
This and more on Sunday.

There is a major question in the black community about whether or not physical punishment is a viable option for disciplining children. The practice has been around since slavery and is so ingrained into black parents, that it isn't viewed as something that is problematic but rather a necessary component to parenting. In her Book Beating Black Kids, author Asadah Kirkland, discusses why black parents have got to change their thinking about this tradition and gives effective alternatives for parents who may be uninformed about how to be effective at parenting in a way that doesn't involve corporal punishment. Asadah Kirkland is the featured guest on the show. Please call in and share your views. WE WILL ALSO BE DISCUSSING THE LATEST IN THE NYPD BROOKLYN POLICE SHOOTING. CALL IN 347-215-8933
We have all heard the bad news about Black economics. From high unemployment rates to low income rates it seems like there is no end to problems, but there are very little solutions. That is what we are going to talk about tonight. How do we put this ship back on course? How do we turn around our communities to make them places where we want to live?

There are tons of discussions about feminism but very few black people actually know what it is about. Most have never read a book about it or even understand its history. The word itself has been used as a weapon against black women as a way of insulting them and making them feel as if they are not loyal to the race if they define themselves as feminists. The images of a group of anti male, masculine type, women who are all lesbians, springs to mind whenever the word feminism is brought up. Black women especially, have been conditioned to believe that the mythology around the word feminism makes it something they should refuse to be associated with. They havve bought into the stigmatization of the word itself, wtihout ever having even read one book about it. Black males are even worse, as they will continue to spread lies about this area of activism and any correct information about it is immediately dismissed as being "anti-black". This episode will explore the history of black feminism, how it came about, what it really is and why there is a fear of it. It will serve to inform and dispel the myths associated with black feminism and give one an insight into why it is more vital than ever to ensure that black women and men work to further its aims.
