    Dr. Nicholas Harlep on the Assault on Communities of Color

    in Books

    Join me for an in depth cultural conversation with Dr. Nicholas Hartlep, author of The Assault on Commuities of Color and Model Minority Stereotype: Demystifying Asian American Success. We will explore the realities of race-based violence in communities of color. What are some of the present day drivers to the violence we are witnessing? What has been the historical past in engagement with communities of color.  The Asian-American student population supposedly scores off-the-charts on high-stakes college admission tests, such as the SAT. Public perception of Asian-American success is evidenced in the phrase “the Asian invasion” — the notion that Asian-Americans are overrepresented on college campuses. Dr. Hartlep sheds light on percieved myths and stereotypes through his groundbreaking research.

    Dr. Hartlep is an assistant professor of educational foundations and is author of the books, The Model Minority Stereotype: Demystifying Success (2013, Information Age Publishing) and The Model Minority Stereotype Reader: Critical and Challenging Readings For the 21st Century (Cognella Publishing, 2013) and an author of The Assault on Communities of Color: Exploring the Realities of Race-Based Violence (Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2015)He can be followed on Twitter @nhartlep

    Charleston Massacre Overcoming Pain, Healing Communities

    in Lifestyle

    When a youngster, consumed by hatred, harboring feelings of apartheid, blows a fuse and massacres nine innocent people in a house of worship in Charleston, what does this say about the inner state of our minds? I’ve lived in both South Carolina for several years, gave a seminar in Charleston, and of course grew up in South Africa during the unstable era of apartheid. The question is: Can we overcome the most overwhelming negative forces that live within each of us and can manifest as hatred? Yes we can overcome, because we have the power within us to experience inner peace. More important, our state of inner peace can spread and change the state of energy around us. We can heal our families, our communities, our nations and our world. Ready?
