Please join us as we discuss white identity politics. This 3 part series will discuss how the establishment profits from identity politics. We will discuss how capitalism was built on slave labor and is currently fueled by anti-blackness. The political elite continues to exploit and manipulate the proletariat for their own selfish agenda.
How did European immigrants became 'white' and at what cost?
How is white supremacy perpetuated by honorary white people?
What role does people of color play in capitalism?
Are (some) white people victims of identity politics? Does it adversely impact their lives?
What are social contracts? How are they negotiated?
Are people of color truly attempting to end white supremacy or are they trying to get a seat or better seat at the table?
Are the black political elite overseers that profit from telling poor and working class blacks to forget about and/or pray about being oppressed?
And much more...

What does it really mean to be white? And how do white people define themselves in a post-Ferguson world full of rage and protest? Today on BOLD, LeGrande Green interviews Whitney Dow, the award-winning director of “The Whiteness Project,” an explosive documentary about race and cultural identity in America.
Whitney tells LeGrande: “People see this as controversial but I don't. I simply wanted to create a vehicle for white people to look at themselves. Whiteness is an attribute that affects everything in our everyday life and our interactions. But no one talks about it.”
“The Whiteness Project” features intimate interviews with 21 people from Buffalo, New York, discussing race in a frank–and often cringeworthy–fashion. People like “Jason” who says, “For some reason, some black people hold on to the back-in-the-day slave thing. Should slavery be something that because it happened we owe black people more? Absolutely not.” Another woman expresses her fear at how “black men in general” take a smile as “an invitation to approach.”
Professor and author Jane Ward will be stopping by the program this evening to dialog about her recent book “Not Gay: Sex Between Straight White Males. Ms. Ward is a white female and Associate Professor and Vice Chair Department of Gender and Sexuality Studies LGBIT Studies Program Chair University of California, Riverside. Ward's published work has focused on a broad range of topics including feminist ography, queer parenting, transgender relationships, the corporatization of gay pride festivals, the race politics of same-sex marriage, and the social construction of heterosexuality and whiteness. Ward’s focus on white men primarily serves to circumvent racist discussions of “DL culture” and to shine a light on behavior she feels white guys could get away with without scrutiny as forbearers of the so-called norm. We look forward to a very intriguing and candid dialog on white anti-sexual behavior, as well as discuss her work on the LGBT movement and feminism. It should be quite a candid and revealing dialog. Put that gag reflex on hold (pause) It’s going to be Reckless.
Multicultral professor at Westfield State University and author of " What it Means to be to be White" , Robin DiAngelo will stopping by the program to discuss her anti-racist work. Ms. DiAngelo is a white female and holds a PHD from University of Washington where she teaches extensively on whiteness. We intend to have her explain exacty what it means to be "white", as well as examine her claims of white ignorance. As always , it's going to get Reckeless.
In the first part of the show, Benjamin Hedin will talk about his timely book, In Search of the Movement: The Struggle for Civil Rights Then and Now.
In the second part of the show, Sr. Stephany Rose, author of Abolishing White Maculinity from Mark Twain to Hip Hop:Crisis in Whiteness will talk about white supremacy in the aftermath of the Charleston chrurch murders.
Please join us Sunday 10AM CST as we discuss white allies, their role(s), inclusion vs. accommodation, having our own safe spaces, eurocentrism, and much more.
Rachel Dolezal's masquerade is another example of why we, as a nation, need to confront and address a number of issues. The black community needs allies, not enemies, or white people replacing us. The erasure of black women by eurocentrism and black men needs to be addressed and rectified. Black women and girls matter.

"The step-by-step process that was used by the press: First they fanned the flame in such a manner to create hysteria in the mind of the public. And then they shift gears and fan the flame in a manner designed to get the sympathy of the public. And once they go from hysteria to sympathy, their next step is to get the public to support them in whatever act they're getting ready to go down with. You're dealing with a cold calculating international machine, that's so criminal in its objectives and motives that it has the seeds of its own destruction, right within. They use the press to emphasize that white hostages are being held by [inaudible]--imagine that--or white priests, white missionaries, white nuns--they don't say nuns: white nuns. You know what the paper said right here in Detroit: white missionaries, not just a missionary; a white nun--as if there's a difference between a white nun and a black nun; or a white priest and a black priest; or if the light that's in a white skin is more valuable than a light within a black skin. This is what they're implying! And the press--look at the press when this thing was going on--and you will see what I'm talking about. They're vicious in their whiteness.
But still, I wouldn't judge them just 'cause they're white, or they'd call me a racist. [I'm] judging by their deeds, by their conscious behavior--and you know how they've been consciously behaving in the Congo, and how they consciously behave in Vietnam, and how they consciously behave right now in Alabama and Mississippi. So you and I got to get conscious, and start behaving in a way that we can offset this thing before it's too late--and this is what they don't want to hear." Malcolm El Haji Shabazz . The idea that Africa is free after liberation is something we must examine throughly. For we must FREE THE LAND IF WE ARE TO BE FREE! FREE THE LAND!!! ONE SETTLER ONE BULLET!

Is there still a need for the divine 9 at HBCUs? 1. How do we work to remove classism, elitism, sexism, etc. from HBCU culture? Is that even feasible? I.e. How do HBCUs avoid breeding Kanyes who are only angry until they have access to the parts of whiteness they envy? 2. How do pro black students at PWIs handle their experience? 3. Some black people feel unsafe in both spaces. Remedy? 1.Why do black students go to pwis only to try and recreate the HBCU experience? 2. Can a black student ever feel completely welcome at a pwi? 3.

How Society is divided by Political ideology - left and right and Racial lines
Politically the left and right are at each other's throats, to the point that if one says black the other says white. Some examples, Netanyahu getting re-elected and the reaction from it; the left championed occupy movement and villified the Tea Party and the right did the opposite, not voting for Obama is racist, Abortion - if you are pro-life - you imprison a woman in her body if you are pro-choice you are a murderer,...
Racial Divisions: Everything is about race, elections are broken down by race, gender, age,... if you want to marry your own race or religion it is considered racist by some, Jackson and Sharpton, when Trayvon Martin was shot - Zimmerman was a white hispanic but no one cares when blacks kill each other; Affirmative action, quotas,...
Reverse discrimination against white - AA and quotas, there is Black history month and Ebony magazine, Latin Grammy's and hispanic heritage month, gay pride parade,... nothing for whites except white privelage - check your privelage, whiteness project, accusations of too many whites on wall street, Madison avenue, corporate America, ... White men are the most discriminated institutionally
