SORT BY Relevancy
An Original Show Team will discuss the concerns and plight of black youth and young adult as well as talk about the shooting in #Ferguson, the rioting and the leadership and residents role to bring resolution.
This week’s broadcast episode of Real Talk with Rick and J. Rich will focus on the mis-education of black youth in America. The current educational system in America is designed to ensure that our young black men fail. The current system misdiagnoses a disproportionate amount of black boys with certain psychological, learning disabilities, such as ADHD and mild mental retardation. These diagnoses are highly subjective, meaning that they are simply based on the opinion of the school psychologist that makes the diagnosis. There is no objective scientific data or tests that can substantiate the diagnosis.
The first thing to understand is that diagnosing young black boys with learning disabilities is big business in America. First, the school district gets between two to three times more money for every student that is diagnosed with a learning disability and subsequently classified as a special education student. Second, your child does not have to be in a special education classroom to be part of the special education program, so it may not be as obvious. Third, whenever a child is diagnosed with a disorder, such as ADHD, they will be prescribed medications to help manage it, meaning that pharmaceutical companies are able to profit off of their back.
This runs even deeper. National statistics reveal that three out of every four black males will drop out of high school before earning a high school diploma. This is by design; it is important to understand this...
We will speak on these issues and more, this Wednesday, August 6, 2014 at 8:00 pm. I hope that you can join us. For more information, visit our Facebook page.
This week on The Conversation Cafe™ A.Raquel & Mahoghani Dawn will talk with celebrity & entertainment blogger Ray Cornelius, who keeps us "in the know" about the latest in entertainment news. In the second half of the show A.Raquel & Mahoghani Dawn will discuss “The Real Angle of the Educational System and How It Impacts Black Youth” with Nationally-known author and public speaker, Tunette Powell.
Tunette Powell has received a host of prestigious public speaking awards, including being named the top persuasive speaker in the country in 2012, as she has traveled throughout the country motivating and encouraging young men and women at schools, colleges and universities, and nonprofit organizations. In the words of Mahatma Gandhi, Powell has dedicated her life to being the change she wishes to see. Powell published her long-awaited debut memoir, The Other Woman – a bold and emotional memoir about her father’s drug addiction and the impact it had on her life. In 2013, Powell shared her story on Oprah’s Lifeclass for Daddyless Daughters. The odds were stacked high against Powell, but she healed through telling her story, letting it go and creating a new story to tell. And she intends to spend the rest of her life helping other women and youth find hope and healing.

BLACK YOUTH: MONEY, MENTOR, & MIRACLES
Are black youth to be blamed for their lack of education, or faith, regarding their individual and cultural inadequacies and failures in life and society? Are black adult mentors afraid to unite across America for fear of white retaliation in schools, especially in face of a black President? If not, why are they not progressing. Why don’t we see more Black owned business or Churches financially supporting educational and faith-based driven opportunities to low-income parents and children of poverty and crime ridden neighborhoods? Is there such a thing anymore as black “upper-class” neighborhoods? And if so, why are we not hearing from them in doing their part to help shape our black youth into “educational, faith walking giants”. Join us, via the EYIC RADIO NETWORK.

Black Youth, Social Activism, and the Post-Civil Rights Generation is today’s topic. Political and social activism is not necessarily willed from one generation to the next. Indeed, the causes rallied around differ from one generation to the next. Sekou Franklin is here to help us understand what has happened to Black youth in the post-civil rights generation.
He is associate professor of political science at Middle Tennessee State University and author of the forthcoming book After the Rebellion: Black Youth, Social Movement Activism, and the Post-Civil Rights Generation

Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis, Maryssa Alexander, Jonathan Ferrell, Sean Bell, Shanesa Taylor and Amadou Diallo,...just a few examples of the growing Wal of Fallen Victims who died because of their race. The list above includes people of all walks of life...athletics, teens, workingclass and immigration. All of the were either killed or harshly penalized for non-violent infractions,or no infractions at all because they were victims of racial bias for African-Americans.
As an adult communinty, we're enraged, sickened, paranoid, confused and practically debilitated by the affects of racism. As adults,our outrage comes from place of understanding.What then, are the affects of racismon our youth?
