On this episode of the ::ANSWERS:: show, we discuss "Racism in the Media."
The media plays a critical role as a major institution in society. Primarily speaking, their goal is to provide the masses with definitions about who we are as a people while reinforcing our values and norms. They give us concrete examples of what happens to those who transgress these norms; and most importantly, they perpetuate certain ways of seeing the world and peoples within that world. This immeasurable amount of power to shape how we think is both a gift and most certainly a curse.
The media is arguably responsible for the negative image it portrays of people of color. Have you ever noticed how the media portrays a person of color convicted of a crime versus a white person? Well, we have and we're going to talk about it.

Websters – “Plague” – troublesome, fatal disease.
Causes: Media, Politics (Democrats mostly), Witnesses-biased and not reliable about 75% of the time, “Rednecks” of all colors and mostly Race hustlers/baiters- Al and Jessie, etc .
Normal Americans, who are in the majority, are not the problem. And we are the answer. We have to realize that we are the majority and act like it. We all must and should believe in ourselves and who we are. WE ARE NOT the sharptons and the jacksons.
What needs to be discussed is not what we know has been going on for too many years, but how to start combatting racism.
I have some thoughts on this and would like to discuss them “live’ On Sister Thunder Radio.
Racism is real. We can look the other way. We can pray for change. We can try not to talk it up too much. That's how we can all get by. But what if we want to do a little more in our lifetime? What if we want to leave a slightly better world for our children? What if we just want to live in a better world for ourselves and our own quality of life? What if we just want to LIVE?
We're going to address this topic from a historical point of view, a present day point of view and lastly - a future point of view. I promise you it's going to be a really good show.
Make sure you show up and the chat room is going to be HOT!
"Racism is as American as apple pie" is the highly publicized quote from student activist Stokely Carmichael (later Kwame Toure) during the 1960s protest movement. As supporters of white police officer Darren Wilson collect money for his defense in the killing of unarmed black teen Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri, members of a white supremist hate group send out a message referring to Michael Brown as a "N-----r Thug" and praise the work of the Ferguson police department in killing him. For them, Darren Wilson is a hero. Racial hatred is as American as apple pie. But is it also a reflection of serious mental instability, an irrational fear that could prompt people to commit violent acts? Is it a condition to be isolated and treated, the way one treats those who suffer from schizoprenia or dementia, or any other mental illness that produces delusional thinking? Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. referred to the racist whites that threatened his life as "our sick white brethren." Those who are treated badly by sick racists often spend a lot of time trying to convince themselves that they are worthy of respect, rather than recognizing that the illness is within those who do not know how to respect others. A healthy mind has the capacity to recognize the good in others. A sick mind does not. Would you vote someone into office who suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and might become a serial killer? Then why allow those with the mental illness of racism to continue to get elected as mayors, appointed as police chiefs, or sit in courtrooms as judges? Should racism be identified and treated like a mental illness? If so, shouldn't the responsibility for removing mentally sick people from positions of authority rest on those who are mentally well?
The events of the past few days reminded me that racism and prejudices are still alive and well in America.
Some of the conversations I have heard makes me wonder if we have made any headway in this centuries old battle, or should I say curse. It seems everytime I think we are making the turn in the right direction another "Ferguson" pops up and ruins the parade.
This morning we are going to have a discussion on racism/prejudices in America.
Do I expect to solve the issue in just ninety minutes? I wish! However, perhaps we can better expain where and why they exist and then go about our day with a little hope.
I hope you will join me "In the Pickle Barrel" at 7AM-8:30AM as we make an attempt to face some realities.
