Happy St. Patrick's Day! This week's TRIBE radio show will feature the WAI's Temper, discussing how to deal with cultural insensitivity and the larger picture of desensitization in our choice of thought and words. And speaking of cultural insensitivity, look forward to a call-in from Ira of the Virginia Initiative, explaining how the contemporary celebration of St. Patrick's Day is more than a little off the mark.
Rob, Shane, and Chris breakdown the 10/13/14 episode of WWE Raw from Atlanta, GA....Ambrose v. Cena in the Vince Russo special...Orton gets the "other guy" a.k.a. the "loser"....Big Show, Rusev, racial insensitivity....and Todd Chrisley....this and much more tonight.
SPONSORED BY MARK PITTMAN--Continuing our discussion on the capitalization and marketing of the tragedies, struggles and degradation of African-Americans...tonight we add a few subjects on the table, including the distasteful distribution of a clothing line of blood-stained sweatshirts by Urban Outfitting for Kent State University, and the case of Marvin Louis Guy, an African-American who is facing capital murder charges and possibly the death penalty for shooting a police officer whose pre-dawn entry into Guy's window awakened him. The sweatshirts created outcry for the insensitivity and tasteless reminder of the Kent State shootings that killed four white students, going so far as to criticize the line to the point of its removal. Those students were memorialized publicly..while the sister protests, the Jackson State killings, which consisted of African-American protesters, protesting the same political move, and had two African-American casualties--received little detailed publicity and very dismissive mentions of the two victims' names. Join intonight at 10:30 pm EST at 347-327-9967.
I will discuss why the American culture has a broken connected to the Jezebel culture of the 9th century B.C., Since Row v. Wade over 75 Million babies (US Citizens) have been murdered legally in this nation. We will discuss legal vs. what is right.
HHS describes the disclosure summary in question as something akin to the nutritional labels on food -- a standardized form that will allow consumers to easily compare one plan’s features to another’s before they buy.
"Before choosing a health plan, consumers will know whether the plan covers these services," said HHS spokeswoman Erin Shields.
The claim that the Obama administration has issued rules for "$1 abortions in ObamaCare" is ridiculous; the administration has simply set a floor for how much money per month of the premiums paid by those who have chosen plans that include abortion must be placed in a segregated account in order to make sure that there’s enough money available to pay for abortion services incurred by people enrolled in that plan.
The bigger charge -- that the Obama health care law "requires all persons enrolled in insurance plans that include elective abortion coverage to pay a separate premium from their own pockets to fund abortion" -- is also incorrect.
Join Dr. Culbreth and Dr. Jung-Kim for a discussion titled "Race, Color and the Power of Words: When words referencing race and color can be offensive!"
The Power of Words
Racial terms that hurt
Color terms that hurt
Words used to identify, describe, and insult people of color
Intentional use of triggers
Actions and reactions - be prepared
Sensitivity and insensitivity
But you said it
Thinking before you speak
The meaning behind it all
I discuss my abhorrence of white peoples' insensitivity on racial issues. I also criticize society's push to make men less expressive of their emotions. It is not feminine to be emotional. It is human. A man should not be ashamed to sit back and cry as a result of his affliction. Only when a person sits back and reflects, and acknowledges to himself the true depth of the horror that has been perpetrated on him can he pick up the pieces and go take revenge on his oppressor.
Liberation is a philosophical concept of relieving oneself of negative energy that's built up. This release is done through healthy cleansing channels. It is unhealthy to go year after year holding grudges, walking around with all of that baggage. The only way to liberation is by punishing the people who have wronged you, both individuals and groups. To liberate oneself of the weight of grudges, one must punish those who have violated him. Then and only then will he find inner peace.
We discuss the defection of Derek Black and of Lynx and Lamb Gaede. These tragedies contain lessons the movement can learn. April Gaede's heroism is also discussed.
I bring to attention the need for white racial soldiers.
OFFENSE (Angering, Hurting, Insensitivity)
How can we avoid offending others?
BIBLE READING: Mark 6:1-6
KEY BIBLE VERSE: The next Sabbath he went to the synagogue to teach, and the people were astonished at his wisdom and his miracles because he was just a local man like themselves. “He’s no better than we are,” they said. “He’s just a carpenter, Mary’s boy, and a brother of James and Joseph, Judas and Simon. And his sisters live right here among us.” And they were offended! (Mark 6:2-3
Tonight on DITC - Donald Sterling's long running racist/insensitive viewpoints get exposed, leading to a lifetime ban by the NBA's Commissioner Adam Silver. We'll cover the evil, awful human that is Donald Sterling, the ban by Silver, and what it means for the Clippers and the NBA going forward. Is the harsh ruling a potential precedent for future insensitivity in the league? How does Sterling's dismissal impact the NBA and ownership in other industries? A Couple Quickies and Andy in Seattle offer their thought. PLUS we'll cover the NBA playoffs, some wild NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs series including a Ducks improbable comeback on the Stars, the equally improbably series comeback by the Kings vs the Sharks and more. THEN hopefully we hear from "Kevin on the Cape" and Random Questions. Special Tuesday Show.

What type of man are strong women longing for? A strong man. In a very sensitive way, Elliott Katz teaches us a lot about this difficult matter. It is a lot of fun reading his book. – Dr. Maja Storch, University of Zurich, Author of The Strong Woman’s Desire for the Strong Man
A brave and creative attempt to pass on the wisdom of strength without harm, wisdom that was once part of the training of gentle, strong and loving manhood in a thousand cultures more subtle and skillful than our own. To be strong does not mean dominating. Only when a man and a woman are both strong, can they be truly close. – Steve Biddulph, Author of The Secret Life of Men, Raising Boys, The Secret of Happy Children and The Secret of a Happy Family
An insightful book about one of life's most important goals: How a man can be a hero to his wife. – Shmuley Boteach, Author of Kosher Sex ,The Private Adam and Kosher Adultery A cautionary tale, it cautions us to not throw out the baby with the bath water – to not toss out the man with the insensitivity. – Warren Farrell, Ph.D., Author of Why Men Are the Way They Are and Women Can't Hear What Men Don't Say
What to make of the author? Is she the Mother of the Year or a guilt obsessed person with religious fears that if she doesn’t do everything to save her son she will be a failure in God’s eyes? As I began reading the book I wondered if she would be in the two thirds who die before the recipient of their care does. Read the book and decide for yourself.
As a caregiver for my wife and a daughter and a son with serious medical problems and disabilities I have some idea of what she endured as she fought for the best treatments for her son. I hope you never have to deal with the arrogance, the insensitivity of those medical professionals that Susan faced to even get an idea of what were her son’s problems?The reality is that we have placed doctors in the impossible position of playing God with our lives. I know many and the best realize there is no way they can live up to these expectations. Unfortunately, many, fearing malpractice suits and in HMO’s with insurance and administration pressures, treat their patients according to the dictates of those who wield the power - or suffer the consequences. It is one reason a good doctor who has listened to his patient, diagnosed correctly the problem, and has outlined a proper course of action can have someone miles from the patient he’s never seen tell the doctor he can’t do what the doctor knows will work. My years teaching I experienced the same frustrations and stupidity from those with more legal power. I had tenure and I was willing to do what I thought would work and proved that I was right. I paid a heavy price for doing the right thing.In Susan’s case, from the moment he was born, most doctors had no clue what was wrong with Mikey. Deletion 22q11 was not in their training so they treated him on the basis of his symptoms or, with some, a syndrome that fit their knowledge. Of course,
