Take a step back and observe all of the major plagues of today's youth. Teen alcoholism, substance abuse, pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, domestic violence, etc. All of these things are certainly not new, but the rate in which they occur in today's youth far outweigh any numbers in instances than that of previous generations. Again, the lax regulations of the media, the increased interference into the household by the government, the absence of the village and many other external factors play major roles in this shift of behavior, but how much of this comes from our youth's interpretation of what it means to be "grown-up" based on observed behaviors or permitted traditions passed down from their upbringing? Join in with your thoughts tonight at 10:30 pm EST by calling 347-327-9967.

Nicholas Snow welcomes Producer/Director Danielle Earle (from LA Web Series Award Winning Series Brooklyn Is In Love) and cast members of her feature film Lover's Game starring Crawford Collins, Miranda McCauley, Paul Sheehan, Andrew Nielson and Tenience Johnson. Lover's Game is a love story of seduction, art, and the emotional battles that bend and break us.
After winning 3 Web Series Awards from the LA Web Series Festival in 2012 and being the center story of major media platforms, such as Social Media Monthly, Curve Magazine, Time Out, Village Voice, and News 12 New Jersey. Danielle Earle is finally made a name for herself as being considered "the female producer that never backs down, and never giving up." Earle says, "Pain is all apart of the journey, and that's why I love writing love stories so much. The beauty and self identity in what is painful, but at the same time, it's what makes us stronger, and more determined. As a Producer, I've delt with having to roll with the punches. I told myself, 'Quitting is easy, but hangng in there is the hardest part. It shows the power in your ability more than anything else."

Continuing our discussion on the state of the youth in Black America and the roles we play in it...
Universally, the unpopular teen will engage in behavior or activities that may seem uncharacteristic to the teen or outrageous to society. For Black youths, the universal standards of popularity are doubled, as just being Black is projected as a disgusting quality, and the horrors they endure because of their race is being divided up between being denied that it exists by Whites who are too uncomfortable thinking that anyone in their community are racists, and Blacks who are too afraid to "rock the boat" in White America. Throw in the generational changes made in the Black community village, and you are left with a volatile group of individuals facing big issues with small aresenals and no experienced leaders to guide them through the process. SInce it's clear that one half of the world has no interest in their betterment, how much of a role does the shunning and inaction of Black AMerica play in the creation of poor self-esteem in its own youth?
