    MISHON live MRTR

    in Pop Culture

    Celebrating Over 150 Episodes!

    Hosts: Jamel & Derrick Dwayne

    @MyRealTalkRadio interviews Singer/Actor: @MISHON

    Very few artists can lay claim to being a natural-born talent. Mishon is one of those talented few. With confidence, presence and vocal dexterity that belie his age, this multi-talented 21-year-old phenomenon is the real deal. Mishon has already made a name for himself as an actor. He recently wrapped the fourth and final season of the popular ABC Family drama, “Lincoln Heights,” playing spunky kid brother Tay Sutton. But the one thing he never lost sight of was achieving his lifelong dream: to sing. Now that dream is coming true with the release of “The Yearbook,” Mishon’s debut album on Dynasty/Streamline/Interscope.

    The Ndustry Presents Community Advocate, Writer and Author LaKita Gordon.

    in Entertainment


    Author of "The Other Side of Addiction: From Terrified to Triumphant," LaKita Gordon was born and raised in Washington, DC. She has been writing since the age of 7. She knew at an early age that she wanted to write, but was afraid. She enjoys writing songs, poetry, and has a passion to share her story with the world. She was always interested in inspiring others to reach their full potential. LaKita was afraid to write her story because she came from a family that believed in keeping their business inside of the walls of their home. LaKita has written poetry, which was submitted to the National Poetry Society, she has assisted in writing school plays, yearbook committee entries in High School, and hopes to write an inspirational column for newspapers. Her book was published in February 2014 and was written with the purpose of being the voice of those who were abused, neglected, felt alone and in fear, although she was never an addict. She enjoys creative writing and was always told by numerous professor's, teacher's, friend's and family members that she has "a way with words," and can take a sentence and turn it into a paragraph. LaKita has a passion for words and for how they are used, and desires to write and publish numerous inspirational and self-help books.

    Obama will veto late term abortion ban doesn't care what 84% of America wants.

    Are you looking for that "different" Father's Day gift? Andrea shares a few interesting ideas.

    An 11-year-old Florida boy was taken away from his parents last month while playing basketball in his back yard because authorities claimed he was being neglected. Uh... 

    Rachel Dolezal Black-White or whacked?

    School worker fired and arrested on child abuse for putting plastic bag over child's head! Good grief! 

    Hr2  MSNBC Melissa Harris-Perry ponders... is there a cis-black-transblack? I'm pondering what reality MHP lives in. Nothing is definitive anymore.

    CNN anchor Fredricka Whitfield called Dallas PD HQ shooter  “courageous and brave.” OOPS!

    You think Obama needs to be impeached or tried for treason? Who's going to arrest him? His own hand-selected Attorney General? Our spineless Congress? Stop wasting your time on this and focus on electing candidates who will actually do something!

    Student with super dark tan accused of wearing "blackface" in high school yearbook! 

    Hr3  CA governor Jerry Brown (D) just rejected the Democrats budget. What's going on in CA?

    In 2008, they predicted by 2015 NYC would be under water due to polar ice caps melting. WHat did I miss?

    The H isn't for Hillary, it's for hypocrite! In her recent speech she vows to bridge the income gap. Maybe she should have started that effort in her own office?

    IRS used “hundreds of attorneys” to hide critical information from Congress. Really?

    power of perception with writer Tannis Laidlaw

    in Spirituality

    Bio for Tannis Laidlaw

    Tannis was born in Canada then emigrated to New Zealand to do various degrees in Psychology/Psychiatry. She started writing early (a soppy poem published in her High School Yearbook) but quickly turned to academic writing. Some sixty publications on, she began the fun of writing fiction.


    In the meantime, she worked as an OT, a psychologist or a researcher in large mental hospitals or universities, in community psychiatry, in forensic psychology, and in private practice.


    Somehow she accumulated eight novels on her hard drive before she thought some might be publishable. Recently her agent has found her a publisher, and she now has a contract to write two murder mysteries. She published PUMPKIN EATER with a small NZ publisher, then self-published BYE BABY BUNTING and recently HALF TRUTHS AND WHOLE LIES.


    PUMPKIN EATER is the story of the aftermath of a woman who snapped, a woman who was both physically and emotionally abused in the past, who broke away from her awful husband by throwing him down the stairs leaving him in a pool of blood, then escaping. Great fun to write!


    BYE BABY BUNTING centres around a young university student who becomes an ‘unwed mother’, is pressured to give up her baby for adoption, then steals her back again. Like PUMPKIN EATER, this is a psychological thriller.


    HALF TRUTHS AND WHOLE LIES takes place in an English medical school where our protagonist has been head-hunted to lead a research team. She encounters a bully for a boss, a woman who will stop at nothing to gain the prestige she wants. Workplace bullies have long fascinated Tannis…


     She also wrote and published CUT THE CARBS, CUT THE GUT, a review, put into layman’s language, of the science behind a largely unacknowledged diet for health and weight loss.

    Facebook and Native Americans Names

    in Politics


    To reestablish a Facebook account after being accused of using a fake name, users must submit one government-issued ID such as a birth certificate, passport or voter identification card or two other forms of identification such as library card and a yearbook photo. The company appears to have been questioning certain Native users since at least 2009, when it deactivated Parmelee Kills The Enemy’s account. More recently, on Indigenous Peoples’ Day, Facebook deleted a number of Native accounts. In one case, the company asked users Shane and Jacqui Creepingbear for identification to prove that they weren’t using fake names.Facebook’s 10-year-old real-name policy stipulates that users “provide the name they use in real life.” However, the social network doesn’t require people to use their legal names, according to an open letter the company’s chief product officer, Chris Cox, posted last October. In the letter Cox apologizes to ”drag queens, drag kings, transgender [people], and [to the] extensive community of our friends, neighbors and members of the LGBT community” whose accounts had been shut down after a user reported hundreds of them as fake. At press time no such apology has been issued to Natives. Colourlines
