    LIVE: Raising the Mandingo Man Child (Mother's Relationships with their Sons)

    in Music

    Raising the Mandingo Man Child ( Mother's Relationships with their Sons)With or without a husband or man in the household, raising a male child can be challenging for a woman. She wants to protect him from the world, prepare him to be a positive and responsible member of society, provide him with opportunities to succeed, pamper him with her love. 

    She has to deal with the forces and influences of society, whether the force is the school administration, officers of the law, the general community or her husband or her man or her family members.In his younger years, the bond is strong and they have a wonderful relationship. As he gets older, in his early teen or teen years, when he starts to feel himself, he begins to challenge her authority, act like the "man of the house" (that's what she called him) and suddenly there is conflict. When dad or father figure is in the home, some times, mom has protected her son against his advice, now the drama begins.

    When dad is not in the house, many times mom will say in a militant tone, "I am sending you to your father," some times after having spoken negatively about his father all these years - a formula for disaster also.

    How do we prepare our young men for success without emasculating them? Teach them survival skills so they will not depend on a woman or be desperate to find a woman to fill the place of mama? When should you stop breast feeding your son, allowing him to sleep in the bed with you, or allowing him to see you in the nude? When do you or should you teach him to cook, dance, hem his pants, wash and shop for his clothes?

    Have a single mother, mother with a step father and mother with the birth father; also have a single father raising his son, father/exhusband without his son and a 30 year old raised by his mom on the show to discuss.

    Let That Man Be A MAN!

    in Romance

    Let That Man Be A MAN!

    There's nothing wrong with being an independent woman.  However, the challenging part of a relationship is being an overly independent woman, and not allowing the man in your life to be just that… A MAN!

    This episode was inspired by one of our listeners, Leonie, who admitted that being successful and independent, has gotten in the way of finding a good man or maintaining a healthy relationship due to her inability to “LET THAT MAN BE A MAN”.  So, on this episode, we’re going to examine issues of independent women, and their inability to loosen the reins when it comes to relationships.  We’re going to address issues of trying to change a man; not allowing him to make decisions; demeaning and emasculating a man, and so much more.   

    We’re also pleased and honored to have Comedian Chocolate Storm!  She will talk to us about her life, the ups and downs of being a female comedian, and her upcoming show which opens on May 16th, in Los Angeles. Also, we welcome the lady who inspired this topic, friend and listener, Leonie!!!

    So, join us on Wednesday, May 7, 2014, with Funny Lady, Comedian, Chocolate Storm and Leonie, for the discussion, “LET THAT MAN BE A MAN”.

    9pm Pacific/ 11pm Central/ 12 Midnight Eastern

    To listen and comment live on-air, dial (646)200-3148.  Or listen from your computer or from the FREE HTTR APP and join the chatroom.

    Double Standards.........

    in Romance

    In 2014, women still can't do things men can without being ridiculed and the same goes for men. Imagine two men dancing on each other at a nightclub....awkward, right? Well if it's not a gay club, but women do it all the time. A man can have sex with 50 women in one week, but imagine a woman revealing such a high count? She'd be labeled a whore. Imagine if we lived in a world where people could really live their lives the way they wanted without being labeled? A liberated woman who enjoys sex just as much as men if not more must have a sex addiction and unable to keep her vagina to herself; just like a very attractive male who does not like sleeping around and prefers being in monogamous relationships must be gay.....Yeah, unfortunately this is how society has prgrammed us to think. Men are supposed to be masculine, free spirited creatures who spread love through their genitals and women should be more refined, conservative submissive creatures giving themselves freely only to their husbands. Cute! Well join us this Wednesday at 10p EST as we discuss Gender Roles that caused these crazy Double Standards!

    Masculinity and Sexual Assault

    in Self Help

    Jerry Sandusky's conviction recently brought attention to a crime that has lurked in the shadows for far too long.  Men are also victims/survivors of sexual assault. However, they suffer in an emasculating silence. As a survivor of sexual abuse Tyler Perry shared this in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, " I knew I liked the little girls in the neighborhood, but this man was doing something to me and my body kept betraying me...This is why so many men will not talk about this - the shame of having to admit that." Karen and I will dedicate this episode to our brothers. Please join us.

    Join me as I discuss the negative side effects of a spoiled black male and the handmaidens who continue to spoil them. It's not Tyler Perry, it's not Hollywood. it's HER who is sucking, stroking, and massaging the testicular fortitude right out of him thus ruining what would otherwise be an amazingly productive man. Her positive reinforcement of foolishness is the reason he can't handle a self-sufficient, developed, mature woman, household chores, or raising his children. I'll be discussing the how-to's of breaking the spell of the spoiled Male.

    January 16, 2011 Show – “When a Woman speaks with the sharp Ginsu Knife in her mouth!

    in Self Help

    January 16, 2011 Show – “When a Woman speaks with the sharp Ginsu Knife in her mouth – How some women’s mouths absolutely destroy men…”

    God willing, on this Sunday January 16, 2011 at 9:00 p.m. EST, Brother Marcus will address the topic “When a Woman speaks with the sharpest Ginsu Knife in her mouth – How do some women’s mouths absolutely destroy men?” Who is teaching wives and women in general how to talk to their husbands and men in general? Does this so – called society encourage women to belittle and berate men? Is there a better way to talk to and motivate a man when a woman is angry and upset? Why is the enemy striving to thoroughly corrupt the true, beautiful, feminine essence of a woman to become more and more masculine in her expressions? Why is that the biggest turn off to any man in 2011, the unfeminine woman? Why do so many women have no conscious idea how piercing their words are to those around them, especially to men? Is a woman guilty of emasculating a man when she is speaking the truth to him that he doesn't want to hear? Why don’t some women seem to truly know that appreciation and respect is a man's fuel to do even more for her than he is already doing? How could a woman use the power of her speech to inspire and encourage a man to be better and more productive? What are some of the triggers that men exhibit that make some women go there?

    With God’s help, Brother Marcus will share in the 2nd Half of the Show an exclusive presentation from Brother Nuri Muhammad, the Indianapolis, Indiana Student Representative of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. He will speak to men on what God expects from men in 2011 so that we may earn the respect of our women and children in 2011. It’s very powerful!

    The C.O.W.S. w/ Jeremiah Camara

    in Education

    Jeremiah Camara shares his views on the System of White Supremacy. Camara has published several texts analyzing the detrimental impact of Christianity on black people - Holy Lockdown: Does The Church Limit Black Progress? & The New Doubting Thomas: The Bible, Black Folks & Blind Belief. We'll ask Jeremiah Camara to deconstruct the emasculating nature of the Christian church. He declares, "In the long run, Christianity is effeminizing the Black man. Preachers who espouse this lean-on-Jesus doctrine are doing a disservice to potentially strong men." We'll ask Camara to provide a comprehensive analysis of the spiritual debt incurred from worshiping the image and religious teachings of our opponents, White people.
