SORT BY Relevancy
The dictionary defines "ism" as an oppresssive and especially discriminatory attitude or belief. Racism, classism, socialism, capitalism and any other "-ism" that the government can touch or manipulate tend to have been poisonous and detrimental to all areas of life. The late Dr. Frances Cress Welsing in her book titled "The Isis Papers", defines racism/white supremacy as, "the local and global power system and dynamic , structured and maintained by persons who clasify themselves as white, whether consciously or subconsciously determined; which consists of patterns of perception, logic, symbol formation, thought, speech, action and emotional repsonse, as conducted simultaneously in all areas of people activity (economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics, religion, sex, and war.); for the ultimate purpose of white genetic survivial and to prevent white genetic annihilation on planet Earth. A planet upon which the vast and overwhelming majority of people are classified as nonwhite (black, brown, red and yelllow) by white skinned people, and all of the nonwhite people are genetically dominant (in terms of skin coloration) compared to the genetic recessive white skin people."
When we look at what is taking place in Flint, Michigan, one has to wonder who is allowing this to continue? What part does racism play? Is it a coincidence that this is coming to the forefront in the middle of a "Presidential Campaign"? Do politicians really serve the people or are they nothing more than puppets being controlled by a larger private corporation?
Join us today as we discuss of the angles of cause, effect and a possible cure of the "-isms."

I met a man in NC who spoke of his life of ISMs. I realized right there, that he was so wise. What words have you adopted that drive you forward or hold you back. How are we causing a hole in society with the words that end with ISM?
Can you think of one more words with that ending to pitch at me today? I sure hope so. Then, let's be candid and speak about whether the word is a drain on society or a net gain to society.
You rock listeners! I am here because you are here! Let's make the world of ISMs matters! You matter more than you know or were ever given credit for!

"There is a stigma associated with being a bad bitch that delineates the type of character women want to associate themselves with. As if being goal oriented, driven and alpha is a bad thing. Here's what happens when women place societal isms on other women, we become competitive. We become unfriendly. We begin to other. We become the mean girls that tell other girls they can't sit with us. We become bitter. We become petty. We become categorized in memes. We become fetishized through a patriarchal lens on what real women should be. We become the reason "I only have guy friends."
In her most recent essay, The Cardi B Effect, Maria Rodriguez discusses the dangers of categorizing and judging women who seemingly decide to take control of their lives, their sexuality, and commit to living life on their terms by any means necessary. Tune in Sunday, January 10th @ 9 pm as we discuss the essay that has taken social media by storm. It's a candid discussion on why women love to hate on the "Bad Bitch" #thecardibeffect.

When we last spoke to the inside/out beautiful Romain Collin, he was immersed in another project. That's the correct term: immersed. When listening to the way he offers music, there is the distinct feeling that Romain had nothing else on his mind but living the chords he was playing. You can almost see him: eyes closed, smiling at memories - or hope from an anticipated time, savoring the life captured in five minutes worth of piano resuscitation.
Our guest just celebrated his birthday. He's young - not yet 40 - but Romain has lived much longer than that. The echoes of other times linger in his songs. Beautifully scary. Right on time for Halloween :) We'll have to ask if that event is celebrated in France, the country of his birth. What the French celebrate for SURE: education. And a beloved transplant knows all about that. At Berklee first (scholarship), he was then accepted at the Monk Institute (another scholarship!). During that time, he was fortunate to be able to tour with two key legends who oversee admissions into the school: Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter. He also studied with Ron Carter, Charlie Haden and Mulgrew Miller.
2008 saw his debut "stick" with Jazz critics. "The Rise and Fall of Pipokuhn" created a reverberation throughout the community - and Romain was invited to join the esteemed Marian McPartland on her popular "Jazz Piano" radio show. In 2012, this "visionary" (NPR) joined us on the show to tell us about "The Calling" - which resulted in more praise from those who don't tend to do so. Orchestral film scoring - and playing with Christian McBride and Lauryn Hill (among others) - kept him busy every single day. But his eye was on a third album - and here it is. Join us for a discussion of "Press Enter!" 10/29 :)
Social media has become the means of communicating, connecting, networking, sharing, and activism in the twenty-first century. We have witnessed social media as a medium for news, events, advertising, public shaming, and publishing, etc. However, the question of how social media impacts girls and women of color is one that promises to view social media in a different light.

Topics include racism, colorism, and other isms, social justice, mixed race identity, movements, selfies, self-esteem, bullying, professionalism, education, politics, personal issue, bullying, dangers, risks, and the pros and cons of using social media among other topics.
