    BLACK WOMEN'S PERSPECTIVE--Interracial Relationships

    in Relationships

    There's a lot of conversation about black men & women of other races, how they treat those women but recently a video has been circulating that has sparked the conversation about how differently black women behave when they date outside their race. 


    This week Playing Devil's Advocate™ hosted by Ms. KiKi, the crew will discuss that video and explore interracial relationships from the black woman’s perspective.  



    Do black women feel like black men don’t value and revere their women like they do “others”?
    Do black women only date out their race because they have given up on black men?
    Do black women behave differently when they are in relationships with non-black men? 


    This conversation is not to be missed and your participation is a must, so set a reminder and JOIN THE DISCUSSION!


    And if that's not enough we have our Producer Cousin Chan's "Drink of the Week" and our weekly “Ask PDA” advice letter!! If you want to give your two cents....contact us on Facebook, Twitter, via email, or in our interactive chat room or LIVE on Youtube Wed night!

    Black Thoughts and Theory: The Radio Show- Black Relationships

    in Culture

    We all know that Black men and women are at odds. But Why? And How can we get them back on the same page?

    Join Alex Primo(Lex Primeone), Asha Zuri, Joe Whitfield, and our new Hosts/Contributors as we dissect,explore, and analyze the difficulties between Black men and women and how best to remediate them.

    Let's face it, men and women in general have problems. The question becomes, why are Black people's problems so severe that they cripple us as a community. Is it merely a coincidence or are there underlying factors that are present by design? In other words have we been poked and prodded into disliking each other? 

    If so, what solutions can we find to remove this unfortunate tool of disunity? What can we do as a people to improve the relationships of Black men and women? 

    Should we be upset about interracial dating? Should we be upset by those that practice classism? Should we ridicule those that choose to remain alone? 

    Is our very culture responsible for the state of Black Relationships in America today? Can we finally find a way to get along? Let's talk.

    Continuing our series on unbalanced relationship compromises....In addition to the universal damages sustained by unbalanced relationships and the underlying causes that lead to these disastrous effects, African-Americans suffer these universal damages plus the damages unique to the Black struggle. Compromises made in unhealthy relationships in Black America stem from seeking to fill voids caused by outstanding forces with multi-faceted subdamages including self loathing. Join in tonight at 10:30 PM EST by calling 347-327-9967.

    Black Reconstruction #LaShawnAllenMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Business

    Hosted By: LaShawn Allen-Muhammad


    Who were the first Black Elected Officials? During the month of November, as the country gears up to re-elect or vote in the next wave of politicians, Black Reconstruction will revisit the Reconstruction era to pay homage to the Black Men who came before Obama.  During this tumultuous time, Blacks not only established townships, they also positioned themselves to be an integral part of government.   


    At a Glance.. In 1855, Brownhelm Township, founded by Col. Henry Brown,  gained notoriety throughout the U.S, when the township elected an African-American to government office.  The NY Syracuse Daily Journal, May 31, 1855 reported that John Mercer Langston was a fugitive slave who had been elected clerk.  Brownhelm's early residents had long been known for their strong anti-slavery stance; and Col. Henry Brown's home on the Lake Shore was often a final stop on the Underground Railroad, before reaching Canada by boat.    African-American Firsts: Government


    Local elected official: John Mercer Langston, 1855, town clerk of Brownhelm Township, Ohio.


    State elected official: Alexander Lucius Twilight, 1836, the Vermont legislature.


    Governor (appointed): P.B.S. Pinchback served as governor of Louisiana from Dec. 9, 1872-Jan. 13, 1873, during impeachment proceedings against the elected governor.


    U.S. Representative: Joseph Rainey became a Congressman from South Carolina in 1870 and was reelected four more times. 


    U.S. Senator: Hiram Revels became Senator from Mississippi from Feb. 25, 1870, to March 4, 1871, during Reconstruction.  


    There have only been a total of five black senators in U.S. history: the remaining two are Blanche K. Bruce [1875-1881] and Barack Obama
