SORT BY Relevancy
Rachel Dolezal has brought a term to her pretending to be black controversy which caused her to have to resign her new position as leader of the NAACP in Spokane Washington. She has used the term Trans-Racial and speaks about her identity in similar terms as a transgender person does. She speaks of at the age of 5 years old coloring with the brown crayon instead of the peach crayon. She says that she "identifies" herself as a black woman and not a white woman.
So what is trans-racial?
Is this a real term? Or did Ms. Dolezal just make it up?
Can a Black person identify with being white even if they are very dark skinned?
What are your thoughts on Rachel Dolezal?
We will discuss this and more on tonight's topic!

Also Tonight we will have Author, Lena Clark, who will discuss her book "An Amazing Mind" on the show. Lena Germaine Clark, a former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) employee suffered an unexpected shock - the suicide death of her husband. This tragic incident compelled her to write her fact-based, educational memoir entitled, An Amazing Mind.
Does it seem like racism in America has increased since the election of Barak Obama as President of the United States in 2008? Well, it certainly seems so. What is it like to be Black in today's "post- racial" America? We'll be discussing that and more today, along with some awesome political poetry pieces on Eddie Caine Radio.
Quite often, there are people who can be described as "a person for a time such as this."
Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Teddy Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and so many others come to mind. Looking back on the context of their times in history, we loft them into super human statuses and forget that they were born like the rest of us and they have died like we all will.
What unites all of these names from our history is the common trait that they had the courage to stand up, speak up and "ACT UP!!"
That last phrase Act Up comes from our featured guest for this episode of The #SocialSpitballShow.
Dixon D. White is a self-described redneck and reformed racist. Dixon has many experiences to draw from to elicit truth about race, which is, in part, that we cannot ignore it away. Dixon calls on fellow White Americans to embrace their "White Racial Responsibility" to speak up and ACT UP when they see racial hurt.
I personally love the term "Act Up" because it makes me think of a child misbehaving, but also the clever bumper sticker that says that "Well-Behaved Women Never Make History." It's true & fitting because we need to step outside of our "comfort zone" of complacency and condoning of a terrible history of racism and violence in this country.
This history of racism and violence manifests itself as much today as in the past. Racism is not over. We need to stand up to racism. With courageous folks like Dixon White speaking up and acting up on the subject, we can be sure to bring more healing and common ground.
Won't you tune in and hear from this amazing & inspiring man and others like him? Barbara and I are excited to get this conversation going...
Gillian Laub is a photographer/artist/filmmaker of the critically acclaimed HBO documentary, “Southern Rites”. Gillian Laub first visited Mt. Vernon, Georgia, in 2002 to photograph the community’s segregated homecoming celebrations. Seven years later, after multiple visits to the area, the New York Times Magazine ran a photo essay, “A Prom Divided,” that documented Georgia’s Montgomery County High School’s racially segregated prom. Not surprisingly, the series generated national outrage that lead to the integration of the proms.
As the film unraveled, there became more to the intended story of this small town in Georgia…
A 22 year old black man, Justin Patterson, was shot and killed by Norman Neesmith, a white man who was living nearby in Toombs County.
With continued tensions of racial divide, this tragedy changed the course of Gillian’s documentary.
On this episode, we’re going to sit down with Gillian Laub to discuss her amazing film, “Southern Rites” and what she sees as a future for this country when it comes to the Racial Divides that affect us nationwide, and not just in the south.

The stories are becoming all too familiar - Oscar Grant, John Crawford III, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, and many others whose names don't make national headlines. #BlackLivesMatter has become the cry of the African-American community as the lives of young Black men and women are taken at the hands of police while unarmed. Why are people of color stopped, searched, arrested, and killed in disproportionate numbers compared to their Caucasian counterparts? How can unarmed "suspects" such as John Crawford III or Oscar Grant get shot on site when people who commit heinous acts - such as James Eagan Holmes who killed 12 and injured 70 in a crowded movie theatre - are arrested and given every benefit of the doubt? Let's discuss it and find some real solutions beyond the hashtags. Because of the nature of this subject matter, parental discresion is advised for children under 13.
Every African-American male in this country who drives a vehicle, or has traveled by bus or plane, either knowingly or unknowingly has been the victim of racial profiling by law enforcement officials. Indeed, African-American males are disproportionately targeted, stopped, and searched by law enforcement officials based on race and gender. Those responsible for enforcement of public laws view African-American males as criminals. Unfortunately, the American justice system has condoned, supported, and in some instances encouraged such actions by law enforcement officials to stop, arrest, prosecute, and incarcerate African-American males. On the basis of race and gender, governmental officials have devised a profile of the typical criminal: black and male.
The term driving while black has been used to describe the practice of law enforcement officials to stop African-American drivers without probable cause. The practice particularly targets African-American males. African-American males are not only singled out while driving, but also while schooling, eating, running for political office, walking, banking, serving as a juror, getting a taxi, shopping, and just being black and a male. The mere fact of being black and male in America is sufficient cause for governmental and private law enforcement officials to abridge the rights of African-American males. This is not to suggest that law enforcement officers can never consider race when performing their job. Just the opposite, where a witness identifies the race and gender of a suspect, it is relevant evidence to consider in an effort to apprehend a criminal. Racial profiling, however, involves a pre-disposition held by law enforcement officers who are members of the majority, to believe that minorities, and particularly African-American males, are engaged in criminal activities; therefore, they are stopped and searched without probable cause or reasonable suspicion.
Friday marks the 150th anniversary of the landing of Union soldiers at Galveston, Texas, with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. The annual celebration Juneteenth was launched to celebrate the end of slavery and the Civil War in the United States.
This June 19 the nation and blacks may be confronting a new type of end of slavery, thanks to former Spokane, Wash., NAACP president, Rachel Dolezal.
Dolezal’s decision to change her race from white to black may actually bring an official end to racial hyphenation and ethnic designation in America. And that is something to celebrate
Join host Kevin Fobbs with his guests Lonnie Poindexter, managing director of the Freedom’s Journal Institute, director of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE), in Washington, D.C., and host of the nationally syndicated Freedom’s Journal Radio Show and nationally syndicated radio host Kenneth McClenton.

We at The Social Spitball Show always seek to share the truth in stories and perspectives that are not being shared by the national and even regional or local media. Racism in the United States of America has a long history and there are those that seek a "post-racist" America. Our featured guest for this show is one of the leaders in those efforts.
Elijah Hamilton, a native Californian & Oakland resident, describes himself as a freelance antiracism educator. In one particular video, Elijah, a white American, describes "Why Most White People Don't Speak Out Against Racism" (also the title of the video). You can find this video and others at his YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/AntiRacistUnity/videos. Elijah can also be found on Facebook and on Twitter using the handle AntiRacistUnity.
In his videos on this YouTube channel and through videos and posts on Facebook & Twitter, he seeks to educate the masses on the misconceptions that have been drilled into our heads for generations. Elijah, like many smart anti-racist activists & educators, says that we need not spend so much time on individual racists, but to work to take down the Racist System in America.
As he said in a recent Tweet, "One of the problems with white liberals is that we often care more about proving we're good people, than we do about abolishing the system of white supremacy." That's why more white folks need to stand up and speak out for our sisters and brothers of color, in order to move our nation forward together.
This is the third in our Racial Healing shows. There is plenty to talk about. It is a very important show and should be a great one!!
Let's KEEP the conversation going...
