We've seen the news, heard the lyrics in songs and can only imagine what the parents of Trayvon Martin are going through at this very moment. We have to become more conscious of how the music industry, news and silver screen help to reduce the value of the lives of our young black men.
In my discussion with black men, I've come to the realization that they deal with so much so where do they go to talk, to become vulnerable and to be given the respect of manhood. Where do we go from here in the uplifting of our men, the education of a younger generation and standing up for what's right?
Q: Does the dominant, very consistent negative portrayal of the black male contribute to the way our culture is perceived by others as well as we see ourselves?
Q: Do these images that incite fear, hatred and anger serve to further endanger our youth?
Q: Does the aspect of your child "fitting the description" give an armed individual (that is not a law enforcement officer) the authority to stalk, interrogate or detain your child?

This past week several mainstream media showed their true hearts and colors when they viciously attacked Chief Theresa Spence. Tried to fan flames to get peaceful protests to escalate, made snotty commentary of no value other then stroking their own egos and trying to under handily incite hate against First Nations and even Youth. Like past uprising and protests, it is the kids that are responding and emerging as leaders. Which is a good thing. Older generations play other roles, as educators
The Republicans find thier divisions newly revealed in the raw. By exposing the party's vulnerability to potent demographic shifts, The 2012 results have set the tone for the all exclusive party catering to white males, and marginalizing communities of color. This idealology cost the party the election. In an effort to revamp the party's image..Now they are finally forced to deal with America's changing demographics.
This week Dr. Elvira will speak with Gina Stracuzzi, founder of e-Women: International Mentoring Network. They will discuss the importantce of supporting the capacity of women to succeed.
Ms. Stracuzzi worked in marketing communications for the commercial and nonprofit sectors, in U.S. and Europe for many years before deciding to do something different. She was motivated to make this change after adopting her daughter, Talia, from Guatemala and experienceing a country so rich in natural beauty yet struggling with vast poverty and inequities. This left an indelible impression, and guided Ms. Stracuzzi to a career change and fueled her desire to someday help her daughter understand the hardships people in her birth country face. After researching projects and efforts underway at the time to help Guatemala and its people, she came to understand that like a lot of developing countries, Guatemala is a class-driven society in which marginalization, poverty and chronic malnutrition are grimly interconnected. She decided to pursue a career in Global Health Communications by obtaining a graduate certificate in Global Health.
Since then, Ms. Stracuzzi has been working in the health and development field and as a coach to health professionals from around the world. She has traveled to Guatemala professionally, giving her additional opportunity to experience the country and its people more intimately.
Most recently Ms. Stracuzzi started e-Women:International Mentoring Network which provides coaching and mentoring to women in developing countries, like Guatemala, who are starting businesses and careers. Driven by the belief that when a person is mentored, two people grow, eWomen also gives the women who volunteer their time as coaches and mentors the opportunity for a rich and rewarding experience that has a direct impact on the life of another woman.
Having a productive conversation about privilege with someone who doesn’t know what that means is difficult to say the least.
When people first learn about privilege, it can often lead to feelings of defensiveness, denial, or guilt – none of which are helpful to addressing intersectional systems of privilege and marginalization.
Based on Everyday Feminims' article, How To Talk To Someone About Privilege Who Doesn’t Know What That Is, Jamie Utt will talk about how some common challenges people face when discussing privilege.

Baby Boomers are facing a new experience: Marginalization!

True Racism? Who's calling the kettle black? We will cover the playing of the race card and what marginalization and race-baiting have to do with this government's agenda, and the controversies in our every-day tackling of issues. Obsessing on race-- IS RACISM.
Slavery has left its mark on us all--both perpetrators and victims--because of the long-lasting effects of dehumanization even 300 years later. Is it any wonder that Black people still feel shock, anger, and disgust when faced with racist situations which puts their “being” into question? But is it racism they face, or is it others not recognizing and understanding black culture? Are we confusing the two? Unfortunately, America’s culture is very mixed and complex which keeps
