Join us on October 14 (2pm EST), when our guest, Dr. Damon Jones, discusses the findings of a recently published study in the American Journal of Public Health. This study funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation suggests that kindergarten students who are more inclined to exhibit “social competence” traits—such sharing, cooperating, or helping other kids—may be more likely to attain higher education and well-paying jobs.
Damon Jones, Ph.D., is a Senior Research Associate at Penn State’s Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center, serving as a program evaluator and methodologist for several family and youth behavioral interventions and prevention programs. A focus of his research has been toward understanding the public costs associated with behavior disorders, which has included authoring several publications on the potential economic value of effective efforts to improve developmental outcomes in children and youth. He has several years of experience with cost-effectiveness and cost-benefit assessments as well as overseeing several project resource evaluations. His work has also included investigations of health and mental health service needs for at risk populations, involving design of data collection streams for collecting detailed health services use information. He received his Ph.D. in Quantitative Methods from Vanderbilt University in 2002.
This promises to be an amazing discussion. Listen in and participate! October 14 - 2:00pm EST.
Cultural appropriation is a sociological concept which views the adoption or use of elements of one culture by members of a different culture as a largely negative phenomenon. What is it about and how can we avoid it. I think it is time we discuss this at length. If you’re Katy Perry, for example, you believe it’s A-OK to don corn rows and gel down your baby hair, put on some long fingernails and so-called sassy mannerisms with a “blaccent” and slang to portray how you believe certain black women behave and speak. But when you do it, as a white artist, you perpetuate a long legacy of white cultural theft—in addition to bypassing all the racist and misogynist insults those black women must contend with on a daily basis. That includes being called “ghetto” by white (and other) people, typecast as a welfare queen or otherwise told that your natural hairstyles and expressions are inferior and unwelcome. These are symptomatic of slavery and segregation in America and, yes, this really still happens every day. And it’s cultural appropriation.
As writer Tamara Winfrey Harris expertly notes over at Racialicious, it’s the oppression that causes the intense offense that many people—mainly white people—seek to explain away rather than critically question.
Johnathan of the Meskwaki Cultural Center & Museum. He runs the historic preservation department for the Sac & Fox tribe of the Mississippi.
The Meskwaki are not well known in popular culture, but they have been well documented in academic circles. This tribe, almost single-handedly brought down "New France". They rejected attempts towards being Christianized (including an attempt by Dr Charles Eastman to convert them in 1897) and going to boarding schools. They rejected the "no dancing letter" of 2-24-1923 which attempted to suspend Pow Wows, by hosting a big Pow Wow event that attracted 3000 Iowans a day. Very amazing history! Ask Johnathan to talk about this. Thanks!
