    Why you need to bridge gaps. Now.

    in Lifestyle

    We all have talents; we all have dreams, we all have passion- the question is, are we using them? The cookie-cutter approach to success no longer works. Laden with debt at the time of graduation and unable to get living wages, many millennials are looking for alternatives to the systemic model. Furthermore, many citizens in this country are resisting oppression and marginalization. With the upward mobility of our youth compromised, how can we be competitive in the global economy? How long will we continue to blindly follow a model that cannot be sustained, psychological or otherwise by the population? It's time we bridge the gap between where we are and where we need to be. The silent majority must begin to work towards solving the enormous amount of issues that the citizenry faces. It is crucial to establishing the integrity and the ideals of the Republic. Enough is enough.Here is a brief introduction to the Bridge Gap Initiative and why you should join me in this effort.

    TALK BACK TUESDAYS: The Freedom Fighters, The Baltimore Riots!!!!

    in Self Help

    Why do you want to be on the front line and put your life in danger?


    Yesterday in the Westside of Baltimore MD, some young high school children planned a protest in response to the brutal death of Freddie Gray once again by the police.  Why has it come down to the children giving a response?  Why did the news spend all day focusing on the riots and not the escalating frustration of historical marginalization, oppression, and violent attacks against African American males? Why are there so many excuses used by African Americans to justify not mobilizing against these assassinations? Why are we still talking and not doing?  Where are the freedom fighters for 2015 the flash back of 1968? These unjust murders are a state of EMERGENCY and we have no more time to answer these questions and so many others. Let’s talk about how we can mobilize on talk back Tuesdays with 3 counselors and a couch. Come get on the Couch!

    Yardie Skeptics (s.2, ep.11) Marginalized man or male privilege?

    in Education

     


    "You see man made the cars
    To take us over the road
    Man made the train
    To carry the heavy load
    Man made the electric light
    To take us out of the dark
    Man made the boat for the water
    Like Noah made the ark"

    - James Brown, "It's a Man's World" 

    Well, so what? Is this really a man's world? Is there something inherently unique about masculinity which promotes innovation in science, technology, and commerce or was it because the "other gender" was strategically excluded from such opportunities? Is there a gender specific role for men in society, and if so, who determines this? Are men now truthfully experiencing a systemic institutionalized marginalization or is this charge of marginalization pointless bellyaching as society moves towards gender equality? 

    The Yardie Skeptics will be continuing their month long examination of masculinity this Sunday, June 8th at 12:30pm EDT (11:30am Jamaica time) as we ask the question, is it a man's world? Tune in and be a part of this timely and relevant discussion!

    Oral Traditions

    in News

    This Sunday our BlogTalk radio program will cover the importance of carrying on oral tradition, and introduce our listeners to  our WnT YouTube Channel. Join Billie Fidlin, president of WnT and Millie Chalk, member of the Board of Directors and part of the YouTube Channel team.


    Oral tradition is the spoken relation and preservation, from one generation to the next, of a people's cultural history and ancestry, often by a storyteller in narrative form.


    Oral tradition is cultural material and tradition transmitted orally from one generation to another. The messages or testimony are verbally transmitted in speech or song and may take the form, for example, of folktales, sayings, ballads, songs, or chants. In this way, it is possible for a society to transmit oral history, oral literature, oral law and other knowledge across generations without a writing system. It often refers to the transmission of cultural material through vocal utterance. WnT has brought some of the oral tradition to life in written format through our online magazine and by then sharing a oral recording of some of those stories on our YouTube https://www.youtube.com/user/WhispernThunder


    The historical marginalization of indigenous people, the dogma of stigma, the continued oppression of an entire race of people to the political and social edges of society cannot and must not continue. Telling the story begins the healing. Telling the story also begins the true understanding of a history of both tragedy and triumph.
