SORT BY Relevancy
VIOLENCE IN MARGINALIZED POPULATIONS
Sometimes when we talk about domestic violence, we assume it means abuse between a man and a woman who are in an intimate relationship. That’s certainly a big part of domestic violence, but it doesn’t stop there. Violence can and does, also happen in relationships between same gendered couples, and what is often called the “Marginalized Populations.” Since intimate partner violence is about power and control over another, any relationship is susceptible, and can suffer from abuse.
Saturday, Dawn Monet shares the facts, the insights and the realities of abuse. Dawn is a community advocate for the NW Network of Bisexual, Trans, Lesbian and Gay Survivors of Abuse, and has been involved with this work for 15 years. She is a graduate with honors from UCSB, with a special interest in art therapy, and was awarded “Special Merit” University Service Award. Be with us Saturday to learn more about the less talked about victims of domestic violence.
For this one...
I riff briefly on the so called supreme, so called court's decision on buying elections.
Instead of just complaining abou it, considering that we know it was going to happen anyway, I submit what I honestly think is a logical fight against it.
Then we go into our freethought conversation with Phoenie Loco.
After that I riff about my idea for an episode on respectablility politics aimed directly at women.
The late great Maya Angelou once said, “A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.” Poetry is a form of expression that allows us to articulate feelings and paints a picture of one’s life experiences. The words of many great poets such as Maya Angelou, Langston Hughes, Essex Hemphill, James Baldwin, and Nikki Giovanni have captured the lives of marginalized and oppressed communities during the civil rights and love movements, have been shared and embraced by the mass all around the world. This shows the power behind words and they are agents of change.
Join us as we chat with two amazing and talented poets, Bianca Spriggs and Kenneth Morrison Wernsdofer, this Sunday, October 26th at 1pm EST. We welcome your participation in this dialogue, by calling (646) 915-9198.

Battle at the ballot box: your civil right and civic duty to vote.
In Hong Kong there are tens of thousands of protesters in the streets because their vote has been marginalized by state selection of candidates. Meanwhile, back in the US, citizens are fighting to exercise their civil right and civic duty to vote.
In North Carolina there is much to celebrate after a federal court of appeals blocked at least part of the voter suppression law in that state.
Reverend Barber from the NAACP Moral Monday Movement spoke to the laws and to a voter misinformation mailer put out by The American Prosperity Foundation, funded primarily by the Koch’s on All In with Chris Hayes yesterday. Your can watch the segment here.
Today is October 2nd, and election day is November 4th, so in every state in the union it is not too late to register to vote. If you wonder what the registration dates are in your state, click here

"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!

"The home of the ackee of rationality and the saltfish of skepticism"?
CWT4R again this week will revisit a series that is geared toward the masculine identified lesbian with returning guest Kofi Adoma and the Jerry Palmer Group of Detroit. The conversation will again explore Identity and labels with a twist of social justice movement within the MIL community.The mission of the Jerry Palmer Group is to combine the talents of self-identified masculine lesbians into a cohesive effort to give validation, support and resources to MILs of all ages in the Detroit metropolitan area, as well as across the country where such support is needed. This grassroots self-reliant group specializes in educating the public about the social and cultural experiences of African American MILs and others of color because this is a population often neglected, stigmatized, and rarely highlighted in national discussions about the LGBT community. Since this is a self-help peer support organization, MILs serve as leaders in proactively managing the programs of this collective group. The JPG strives to collaborate and partner with similar groups such as Brooklyn Boihood, Brown Boi Project, Unity Fellowship Church Movement MIL Ministry, and Butch Voices to encourage participation in the intersected social justice movements where women of color are marginalized and disempowered.The show will feature three of the leadership cadre members, Elder Atiba Cohen-the elder of the group, Dr. Kofi Adoma (pronounced doe-MAH)- founding member, and Kunto Mawusi-the youngest in the group. Their aim is to share with you the purpose of the Jerry Palmer Group and how it was founded, the specific goals and target areas, who all is involved, and the importance of having a group like this exist in Detroit and elsewhere. The focus of the conversation will be on empowerment and visibility of MILs of color and ways to rally up their talents and skills to be of service to their communities, to each other, and to themselves.
