SORT BY Relevancy
On this episode of Field Afrikan Radio we will discuss some of the stereotypes that most of us have heard but from a different perspective. Example; We've all heard the stereotype that Black males who interracially date tend to find unattractive European females as mates while the White males who date Black females tend to find the pretty ones as mates. There's a psychology in this stereotype/scenario that I've never heard posed before that we will share. We will also use stats to "myth bust" some of the stereotypes that many of us believe to be the gospel.
We will also decode Black reality shows. There's a connection that goes all the way back to the 70's. We have a theory that many of you will find informative.
We will examine the White family structure. What's the difference between the White family structure and the Black family structure? The media shines a light directly on the Black family structure while ignoring the European family. We will examine and discuss exactly what Europeans don't want us examining about their families.
We will build on these things and more. Join us.
Bernard A. Drew will discuss his book Black Stereotypes in Popular Series Fiction, 1851 - 1955. Drew will talk about the forgotten writers who became famous in the Jim Crow era by writing stereotypical stories about African Americans.
In the second hour of the program, Paul Marko, host of The World Beyond Belief, returns to discuss further the bankers' control of the world and offers solutions to end that rule of the bankers.

Today, we are beginning a new discussion on the topic of stereotypes. You have probably heard the word many times. Many have blamed the racial issues in this country on the persistent racial stereotypes that are prevalent in our society.
So, what are stereotypes? According to The Dictionary of Psychology, a stereotype is “a fixed, over generalized belief about a particular group or class of people.” Some popular stereotypes include the beliefs that women are more talkative than men, that blacks are naturally better at athletics than whites, that Jews are shrewd, that Indians and Asians (or people who wear glasses) are smarter than others, or that the kid who will win the next National Spelling Bee will be Indian.
If you examine your own beliefs, you will find that you hold a variety of stereotypes about others that are not based on any proof that you have examined for yourself. You simply adopted those beliefs from your parents or other family members, and many of those beliefs are reinforced by movies and television.
Stereotypes can be a double-edged sword; they can be good or bad.
According to research psychologist Saul McLeod one advantage of a stereotype is that it enables us to respond rapidly to situations because of past experience or knowledge that we have gained from others. For example, if you are walking home at night and you happen to look behind you and find that a man wearing a ski mask is following you, a stereotype kicks in. Your mind will automatically begin to think that the man will try to rob you, rape you, or kill you, and you need to act accordingly -- run away, call the police, or get to a well-lighted area where a lot of other people are. That is an example of a stereotype working to your advantage. The stereotype tells you that men who follow people around at night while wearing a ski mask are up to no good.
Everywhere you go no matter your race, ethnicity, or gender you will hear someone say something about a person based on the way the look, speak, or even walk. Society has helped us all build up a vast array of steretypes towards others and ourselves. Is stereotyping a healthy practice? Does stereotyping lead to prejudice and/or discrimination? Join us as we discuss this and more on The Just Because Show Tonight!
