On Wednesday, August 6, I broadcasted a show here on The Joshua Generation called "Introspection: The Seventy-Two Percenters."
Though the show's intent was about the stereotyping and stigmatizing of Black women as single mothers, one "Brotha" called in to the show with the apparent intention of further stereotyping and the degradation of Black women.
It became pretty apparent that the "brotha" either called in to degrade Black women intentionally, or he was intentionally ignorant enough to believe what he said had any validation to it.
He also let us know that one of the main problems Black women have is that we are constantly being thrown under the bus by Black men. But worse than that, he did what his kind are typically prone to do.
He was not reading or listening to the show before he called in to do nothing OTHER than degrade Black women as wives, mothers, and as the women who birthed an entire world.
The question: "Are Black men to blame for Black women's suffering, pain and struggling?"

Join The Joshua Generation Network this week as we talk about single Black women and motherhood/parenthood.
We know that "baby daddy"' was a creation of white America and that integration, in and of itself, has devastated Black families and especially Black women across America.
Are you a single Black woman, whether by widowhood, divorce, choice, or "just because"? If so, what do you think about how American living has redefined Black womanhood, Black fatherhood, and the Black family through the "Plantation Picaninny" and "Mister" model of America's antiquated Jim Crow Society.
How have white people's attitudes and their televised and musical "plantation ownership" filth about us caused damage and harm to us, socially, morally, and psychologically? How should we answer this in the days, months, and years to come?
Where are American Black men in the lives of single Black women/mothers, whether the "fathers" of these children are deceased, disabled, or missing in action, i.e., have opted, like their white forefathers did, to abandon their Black families?

Join us this week on The Joshua Generation as we discuss the outlook for the future of Black America and some of the challenges we will face long after President Obama is out of office. With the clock ticking on his second and last term, where do Black people stand now? Are we better off, worse off, the same, or does anyone really care? What has Bible history to do with Black America and what is the meaning of the Savior's words "The Thief Cometh Not But for to Steal, Kill and Destroy?" - John 10:10
On Saturday last, I was invited to a ceremonial chuch service called the "7 Ups." It was a beautiful program implemented and hosted by a long-time sister-friend who is a pastor at the church she serves. She told me how God gave her this revelation during a moment of prayer and quiet reflection. It contained several scriptural principles: Tighten UP, Step UP, Pray UP, Speak UP, Look UP, Break UP, and Dress UP. Seven speakers were invited, but it happened that one did not show. Even as she introduced "Sister Add On" and substituted for the no-show, I knew that role was my own. After I told her I could have spoke up on that topic for days, she admitted that she started to invite me, but didn't want to put me on the spot at the last minute. I did not SPEAK UP because I feared overstepping my boundaries and did not want to infringe on a planned program or church protocol. Tonight, I will read from an article on Urban Intellectuals named "Cotton Be Gone!" as an encouragement to Black America to Look UP! for your redemption draweth nigh (Luke 21:28), to look up to the hills from whence cometh our help (Ps. 121).

First and foremost, I was (and still am, though my sons are full-grown adults) a single mother; so I have more than an outsider’s “baby mama histrionic drama” glance into the facts. I’m not all about the mainstream media’s histrionics that come out of the conservative/corporate mindset about single Black motherhood. I was/am a single mother who was, at one time–a couple of times really–married. I finally figured out that I could truly “do bad all by myself.”
While it is almost never a good (great?) idea to raise children alone, as it does provide many systemic problems that end up affecting children for the rest of their lives, I was raised in a household where my father was absent — and needed to be. I later found out, as an adult, why my mother left my dad; and frankly, God rest her soul, I’m glad she did.
That said, I repeat: A child should be raised by both parents, whenever and wherever possible.
However, I think I (and many of my Black single mother constituents) are about fed up with watching Black women being targeted and singled out for media abuse, as if single mothers of other races don’t have the same -nearly the ‘exact’ same- issues. In that sense alone, our “Black Leaders” have failed us all.

Tonight's Show: WHY DID JANAY RICE STAY?
Black Women who have been victims of domestic violence ... why do you stay in such horrific relationships? Why do you marry men who have abused you in the past (meaning they will do it again)?
Though Janay Rice admitted that she lunged at the brother and her now-husband, Ray Rice, first; and he just popped off and hit back HARD, let's have a serious "BLACK WOMAN PROGRESSIVE DR. LAURA-type" talk about Ray & Janay Rice, and how long this marriage is supposed to last now that the two of them have managed to lose him his job, his career, and most especially all that money.
If Janay Rice had been white, would we even be having this discussion in America (again) about domestic violence and Black women?

Nationwide — The evening news, the feature story on the front page of the paper, and even the most talked about local issues on local radio stations have one thing in common – they highlight the worst that is happening in the world today. While it is essential to understand the challenges in the local community, the nation, and around the globe – the constant onslaught of negativity can weigh too heavy, and result in a negative outlook on life.
This is why life coach, author, and motivational rap artist Marcus Parker AKA “M-Positive”, has launched his hot newly-updated Android app called “A Dose of Motivation.” The app is designed to provide instant access to a wide range of motivational entertainment and tools such as music, books, and on-the-go life lessons.
“While there is much in the world that can and should be improved, there is much good in the world too. This app highlights the positive thoughts and gives users a true dose of motivation through music, books, and life lessons,” says Parker, who has overcome his share of negativity in life.

Join us this evening for a "before bedtime" chat with co-hosts Joan Gosier and Tiombe Kendrick Dunn.
We will be discussing many of the financial and socio-economic dynamics that "bleed and drain" the Black community of land and resources, as well as budget management on a dime, even if all you have IS a dime.
Our aim is to play a role, through the King's Town Family Foundation and BMQ (Black Men's Quarterly) to make certain that the state of the Black economy -by 2064- is much more advanced than what it is now. We also strive to tend to the keys and pathways that lead to financial and economic independence for singles, families, and the Black community at-large.
Stay tuned ...
Back at it again!!!! The Joshua generation Speaks ! call in @ 347.857.4514
Participants are encouraged to present their spiritual questions, queries and struggles, whereby the host will attempt with the aid of scripture and the Holy Spirit's inspiration to provide adequate instruction, correction, inspiration and encouragement. Comments and exhortation may also be solicited from the other participants within the bounds of relevance and congeniality. The overall objective will be to create a liberated atmosphere where people feel free and comfortable to share their concerns and get their longtime, internalized questions at the least addressed and ideally answered. This format is being employed to stir discussion and participation amongst God’s people and counter the current spectator, one-way monologue program that is being practiced in most contemporary church worship services today. The goal being to allow the Holy Spirit the freedom, time and interaction to bring knowledge, wisdom, healing and support to the members of Christ’s body, for one another and by one another. As well as, inviting outside seekers of truth into a non-intimidating, non-traditionally religious setting of dialogue, where they can pose their questions without fear of judgment and openness and acceptance in a spirit of love and mutual engagement. Join us as we pierce through the darkness & cut our way through the murky waters of what Christianity has become today, so as to find the freedom that Christ intended us to have, in the same way he taught & shared when he walked & lived life among the people. What was the Act's Church & were we meant depart from it into what Church has become today. And if we have, how did we get there? Join us as we unravel these questions & tackle many more which has made Christianity into what it is today.
