SORT BY Relevancy
Please join Alfred & Karl tonight as they discuss the controversy surrounding those who dress up in blackface for Halloween.
Also, is there a difference between wearing blackface and tanning dark to portray people of color?
Is this another means of appropriation or is it admiration?

Episode #4: We all know that in this country African American people are very sensitive about complexion and hair texture. On this episode of Straight Talk... No Chaser!!! We will be covering Blackface by David Leventhal. This show will be powerful. Hopefully it will educate and change the way we feel about ourselves and the cultures and races around us.
Tonight, on a socially ignorant edition of the Never Daunted Radio Network, even though we're against political correctness as a whole, some issues force us to be a little hypocritical. Using the example made by actress/whatever Julianne Hough, we'll be talking about the spectre of Blackface, and how it's never an OK thing to do, even for Halloween.Next, Police officers in Oklahoma responding to a call about an man with a bloody face thrashing around his apartment arrived to find him covered in soap and salt and ranting about a "possessed homosexual demon" who ordered him to "cook the Bible." Is it a case of a hot mess...or just hot meth.Later, man won't be worth a damn unless he knows his priorities. This idea is exemplified by a Georgia man who, after discovering a fire in his home, rushed out five other adults and two children to safety, ventured back into the burning building..to rescue his beer. We'll drink to that!And finally, on this week's edition of the Cremo Cream Essentials, we feature the Grateful Dead, and their seminal album, Workingman's Dead. We'll share a couple cuts and talk about how a band full of burnouts will never actually burn out their legacy.All this and more, tonight, on the Never Daunted Radio Network!
Is something rotten in Deutschland? Apparently so. I'll have guests Gyavira Lasana, and old friend of the show, Lisa Dixon from the frontlines to discuss the delicate issue of blackface and the petition now being circulated.
Gyavira Lasana is a poet and playwright living in New York and Berlin. He has written extensively about the life of blacks in Germany for the past ten years.
Lisa Dixon has been a guest on the show several times. She was one of the "Brown Babies" of Germany, the daughter of a German mother, and African American solidier. Her story was one of many featured in the award winning documentary, "Brown Babies: The Mischlingkinder". She is an activist and very vocal in the campaign to end the practice of "blackface" in Germany.

ANATOMY OF OPPRESSION – PART VIII
We supposedly have the inalienable right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but Black and Brown people live now and have always lived under and around arbitrary authority that is white authority. Control of education is an integral part of democratic organization - a very natural and obvious structure. Community Control of police is against the organization of government control from the top down.
An anatomy of oppression requires an ANATOMY OF COLONIALISM. That is a description of the connections that we have which relates to our ability to access money, that is jobs, education, housing and all the other benefits related to this economic system that we live under.
Jim Crow is not dead but alive and well and growing by the minute. The question for our next broadcast is...Do we have the emotional capacity to deal with this reality?
THIS WEEKS EPISODE WILL REVISIT THE BLACK AGENDA REPORTANALYSIS OF THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT within the context of the anatomy of oppression. Ralph Poynter
(1) Special Report from Mary Neal about her national protest initiative against Police Brutality.
(2) Special poetry reading of Mondo Eyen We Langa by Lynne Stewart
(3) In addition, this Tuesday, we will continue our special discussion led by Dick Minnerly and the radio panelists (Larry Pinkney, Lynne Stewart, Joel Meyers and Ralph Poynter) concerning the best form of government and thefundamental principles of proper government based on Mr. Minnerly’s book, "Human Nature."
Rachel Dolezal has brought a term to her pretending to be black controversy which caused her to have to resign her new position as leader of the NAACP in Spokane Washington. She has used the term Trans-Racial and speaks about her identity in similar terms as a transgender person does. She speaks of at the age of 5 years old coloring with the brown crayon instead of the peach crayon. She says that she "identifies" herself as a black woman and not a white woman.
So what is trans-racial?
Is this a real term? Or did Ms. Dolezal just make it up?
Can a Black person identify with being white even if they are very dark skinned?
What are your thoughts on Rachel Dolezal?
We will discuss this and more on tonight's topic!
JOIN THE CONVERSATION!! On Twitter use the hashtag: #CrystalShowTalk
Also Tonight we will have Author, Lena Clark, who will discuss her book "An Amazing Mind" on the show. Lena Germaine Clark, a former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) employee suffered an unexpected shock - the suicide death of her husband. This tragic incident compelled her to write her fact-based, educational memoir entitled, An Amazing Mind.
Gyavira Lasana and Lisa Dixon are my guests again to dig deeper through this issue of "Blackface" or refusal to acknowledge the existance of qualified actors to play black roles. Instead they are choosing to use white actors and use the practice of smearing their faces black to play black roles. This definitely transcends the practice of "Blackface" itself, and brings to light the issue of a total disregard of a people. Get your shovels ready! Please sign the petition while you're at it.
