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
A smile can say something that you cannot find the words to say. A smile is a friendly reminder that it’s OK. A smile might say don’t worry or I have your back. A smile is something you can lean on in the time of trouble. A smile will sometimes speak volume, your stamp of approval on a dress or hair design. Smiling does more good than bad. It can hurt you or bite you, but that does not happen often.
It’s a give away so don’t stop the encouragement. It’s a tag along so remind yourself not to forget about it or wish that you had used it. When we smile the whole world might return the gesture. It’s kind and it will apologize with a silent pardon me. Did you know that a smile is a representative of patience? It will assist you in living a balance lifestyle and nothing just happens. Consider yourself one step closer in your climb to the next level.

If you've been working the web for any length of time, then you know the search engines frown on what is known as "Black Hat" techniques. This technology has been used to exploit search engine algorithms since the first search engines appeared. The reason black hatting used to be popular was because it could move your website onto Page 1 in a hurry. Before the turn of the century, black hatting was practically a requirement, since the practice was so prevalent. However, during the past few years, search engine operators have designed their spiders to search and destroy anyone employing black hat techniques. In fact, the past half dozen updates on Google have been designed specifically to crack down sites that were using these techniques. This has resulted in a number of sites being either delisted or even black listed. The problem is that most people still don't understand where the line in the sand has been drawn regarding black hat practices and technology. So in this episode we're going to show you who is wearing a black hat on the Wild Wild Web. We'll also review some of the more common black hat-like techniques that can get you into trouble so you'll know to avoid doing them.

How one spends his/her day is truly up to the individual. I believe when we add faith and walk in it we recognize it’s not us in control but our Maker. We wake up with a smile instead of a frown, we say thank you when someone shows kindness towards us and we appreciate the people who come and go in our lives because we understand it wasn't self-doing, but our Maker.
Tonight as we continue on this journey in refining ourselves and accepting the shoes designed for us, Help me welcome our returning guest Ms. Sharisa Robertson to the show.

“Everyone Has a Story, What’s Your Story?”
We all know someone who has experienced pain in some kind of shape or form, whether they did it to themselves or it was done by the hands of someone else. Pain is not respect of persons. We all can agree that it “hurts.” It can come in many forms. A person can have a smile on their face, a limp when they walk, a frown on their face, or be known as the life of a party and can be experiencing pain. Behind the smile, the limp, or the frown there is a “Story.” So, what’s your story? We all have one whether we want to admit it or not. Some people are living in guilt, shame, fear, unforgiveness, denial, anger, bitterness, turmoil, grief, and depression right now. It stems from their story. If you can relate to any of this without any hesitation, then you have a story. BUT THERE IS HOPE!
Tonight at 6:30pm on Real Talk with Devara we will have a guest who will be telling her story in hopes of freeing someone else. I encourage every one of you to call in. You don’t have to tell your story, but just hearing someone else’s story can let you know that you are not alone and that if they made it through their story, So Can You. Our guest will share how she overcame her pain and how she stopped the cycle of self-destruction. Invite someone you know that can benefit from this. You never know, this one call can change their life or even your life. Don’t Miss It. Call 310-982-4267 tonight at 6:30pm EST or go to http://tobtr.com/s/5521501. Your questions and comments are encouraged because they can change lives. Remember no faces can be seen on the radio, and no names are required, so feel free to be free.

24SEP13. Independence versus Dependence!!Society as a collective recently has started to frown upon recipients of government aid. Unfortunately we do have individuals whom abused the system and have remained on it for an over extended amount of time. We also have others who feel that as long as their significant other is the primary bread winner in the relationship, either they will stop contributing or cut there source of income out completely to utilize their partner’s resources. Many other topics related to the issue and we will discuss this as always on and as REAL TALK. Also current events sports and other various topics.
We should always look beyond the obvious. Many times we miss the mark being in our flesh and we are unable to respond as Christ. We can't reach people that have fallen into sin if we judge and frown upon them as though there's no hope.The Bible says you who are spiritual consider one as yourself restoring them back to fellowship gently but firm let's you fall into the same temptation. People of God the reason why people fall and don't come back. Our attitudes towards them the looks,what we say Am I saying be in agreement with their actions No but don't kill their spirit. Join us tomorrow night at 8 pm for this teaching
Everyone was born with a sixth sense. The problem is that we are discouraged from using it at a young age. Our society and many religions frown upon it! Tonight Jennifer will be talking about hands-on techniques that you can use right away to jumpstart your personal psychic talents, from the dream state to the hunches you receive while awake. Developing your intuition is like learning a foreign language: it requires a little practice and takes awhile, and if you don't use it...you'll lose it! But once you know the basics, you're off and running, and the more frequently you use your skills, the stronger they become.
