SORT BY Relevancy
Many throw the word "racist" around at the drop of a hat. While extreme racist, will embody it and the Al Sharpton's of the world will call them out, there is a class of people who get confused. Can you make an "off-color" joke and not be called out for it based on ignorance? Some may think its funny. Many others will hit the roof because of the offense. What if you don't understand? Should people just "lighten up?"
Is this racist? The Life Full Circle Radio staff heard this questions a lot this week. So much so that we decided to make it a part of the Life Full Circle Radio conversation this week. What makes something racist? What is the difference between racist and not knowing? Where is the line between racist and stereotypes?
To help us answer these questions we will have Dr. Jeffri Anne Wilder on as our guest to help us maneuver through these social land mines.
Join Miguel Lloyd and your favorite Life Full Circle Staff This Saturday At 10am and join the conversation.

Atlanta's WSB-TV reported Monday that Hawks minority owner Michael Gearon wrote a letter to Levenson calling for Ferry's resignation or firing. Gearon's letter, which is dated June 12 and can be read here, included an account of Ferry's comment about Luol Deng, an unrestricted free agent at the time who was born in South Sudan.
With respect to one potential free agent, a highly-regarded African-American player and humanitarian, Ferry talked about the player's good points, and then went on to describe his negatives, stating that he "has a little African in him. Not in a bad way, but he's like a guy who would have a nice store out front but sell you counterfeit stuff out of the back." Ferry completed the racial slur by describing the player (and impliedly, all persons of African descent) as a two-faced liar and cheat.
We were appalled that anyone would make such a racist slur under any circumstance, much less the GM of an NBA franchise on a major conference call. One of us can be heard on the tape reacting with astonishment. Our franchise has a long history of racial diversity and inclusion that reflects the makeup of our great city. Ferry's comments were so far out of bounds that we are concerned that he has put the entire franchise in jeopardy.
For his part, Johnson said, referring to a disturbing racially tinged conversation Sterling was said to have had with a female friend that was made public by the gossip website TMZ, “If the reports are true, there needs to be strong and swift action taken.”

After hearing the recorded racist rant of L.A. Clippers Owner Donald Sterling, some people were in total shock and others found themselves saying under the breath that it's nothing but business as usual.
But the Donald Sterling's of the world are plenty and they always seem to possess certain particular traits. Being in controlis one of them and the underlying insecurities that the world willnever see is ever present. Combine these two factors with the extravagant lifestyle that money can bring and you will eventually feel the storm that rages covertly below.
But what these hidden factors that makes a man like Donald Sterling tick? While others have sworn that we live in a post racial society, the illusion is up for those same people who must deal with the unwanted spectre of racism that is alive and well stronger than ever in 2014.
Donald Sterling in a classic segregationist, not a classic racist. He's simply a product of his era, born in 1933, became a teenager in 1945, right as WW2 was ending.
Most people in society, most white people in society, share his exact same beliefs, and also live racially segregated lives when not at work.
So not sure why some people are acting so 'shocked' and 'outragged' when they themselves feel, do, act, behave, as Donald Sterling does in their own personal lives.
Obviously the mans not that racially a segregationist, at least not when it comes to being under the sheets, I mean his girlfriend 1/5 his age is mixed, has brown skin.
Like this blog says 'Seems all racial tensions end once under the sheets'...http://www.city-data.com/blogs/blog19557--there-anyone-who-isnt-.html
Anyways. I want to offer a different perspective to this story than most, so stay tuned, and or tune into broadcast, thanks.
THERE IS A LOT OF MISINFORMATION BEING DISPERSED AMONGST OUR PEOPLE ABOUT RACE, RACISM, RACIST AND OTHER NEGATIVES THAT ARE DEVISED TO PROGRAM OUR MINDS INTO BELIEVING THAT BLACK FOLKS ARE RACIST TOO, OR THEY PRACTICE REVERSE RACISM. AN ATTEMPT SHALL BE MADE IN THIS PRESENTATION TO LAY THOSE LIES TO REST, ETERNALLY...
