SORT BY Relevancy
The United States has long been known as a melting pot and, more recently, as a salad bowl. Because people from hundreds of different ethnic backgrounds make up the nation’s population, it’s not surprising that at times cultural groups rub off on each other. Americans who grow up in diverse communities may pick up the dialect, customs and religious traditions of the cultural groups that surround them.
Cultural appropriation is an entirely different matter, however. It has little to do with one’s exposure to and familiarity with different cultures. Instead, cultural appropriation typically involves members of a dominant group exploiting the culture of less privileged groups--often with little understanding of the latter’s history, experience and traditions. Accordingly, socially aware people tend to frown upon this phenomenon.
“Borrowing” is a key component of cultural appropriation. In the 1950s, for example, white musicians borrowed the musical stylings of their black counterparts. Because African Americans weren’t widely accepted in U.S. society at that time, record executives chose to have white recording artists replicate the sound of black musicians. This led to musical forms such as rock-n-roll being largely associated with whites in spite of the fact that black musicians were pioneers of the artform. This move also had financial consequences, as many of the black musicians who helped pave the way for rock-n-roll’s success never saw a dime for their contributions to the music form.
Let's talk about cultural appropriation as it affects pop culture today. Join tomorrow, October 1 on DP RADIO XL at 8pm

Today's Show: Where and How to Start When You're Making Financial Decions
Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that God knows the plans He has for us; to prosper and not to harm, and for a hope and a future. But on a day-to-day basis, in our current financial reality, how this plays out is not always easy. There are regular bills to pay, and unexpected ones that seem to come up at the most inopportune times. On top of this there is a steady stream of new ways to spend money and more and more financial products, strategies and factors that need to be considered for daily spending, borrowing, saving, investing, and earning money. Overwhelm, fear and scarcity thinking are more common than the peace of God that surpasses all understanding.
On Today's Show Sam will share some practical ways you can stay focused on the Lord as your provision as you face whatever large or small financial decision is in front of you.

WALTER DOMINGUEZ, Latino award winning filmmaker
Being a CTE Teacher in my other life I hear all the time about students who are going to leave high school and immediately make the “Big Time $$$$” in some field of Entertainment and so today I wanted to talk to someone who has actually “been there, done that”. I give full credit for borrowing the show descriptions from my friends at Armando F. Sanchez productions and for the Information Provided by Walter’s Public Relations People
In our fast-paced, chaotic world, it is difficult (if not impossible) to imagine the lives of those who came before us, even just two generations ago. And yet, more than ever, each of us still has a yearning to connect with the past, to better understand those who came before us and made us who we are.
That is the journey undertaken by filmmaker Walter Dominguez in the extraordinary documentary “Weaving the Past: Journey of Discovery.”
As a young man, Dominguez was inspired by his grandfather, Emilio, known as “Tata,” who was one of the most prominent and beloved Mexican Methodist ministers in idyllic Santa Paula in rural Southern California. A community leader who was known for his generous heart and kind spirit, Tata died in 1973. Three decades later, with the generation that knew Tata best quickly dying away, Dominguez picked up his camera to uncover the long-hidden secrets of Tata’s earliest years.
Walter brings to this award-winning film his unique sensibility as a storyteller and his perspective as an American Latino. Walter’s skills are a result of his extensive background as a director, assistant director, 2nd unit director, writer and producer in Hollywood studio features, television series, independent features.
What does family mean to you? This is a question that I believe that we should all know they answer to yet it appears that we either do not of that many of us are confused as for most what many say and what many do are the opposite of one another.
We all grow up with the weight of history on us. Our ancestors dwell in the attics of our brains as they do in the spiraling chains of knowledge hidden in every cell of our bodies. ~ Shirley Abbott
The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. ~ Erma Bombeck
You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them. ~ Desmond Tutu
What does family mean to you? Let's get to your truth.
Let's have a seat on the couch and talk it all out.
in Self Help
Within months of his first go around with Vikes he knew he needed more. Later a shady Doc gave him a prescription for 240 Norco a month and he managed to use that in two weeks. He knew he was out of control and it went on for another seven years. He graduated to oxy somewhere in that time span and had to hustle to manage enough of it to avoid getting sick at $80 a pill. Stealing, “borrowing” from friends and hocking valuables became a way of life. He needed to get off the merry-go-round and promised himself every day for the last three years he used that the pills he took that day would be his last. Join us this Sunday to talk to Dan about how he finally got to his last pill.
