Bi-racial teens face unique challenges that other teens may not experience. On our show tonight we talk to a 20-year old Berkeley student, Karinne Smith, about her experiences as a bi-racial teen in Los Angeles, and as a bi-racial young woman. And we talk with Karinne's mother, Kelly Kester-Smith, about her observations and experiences. Join us for this fascinating discussion, pre-recorded.
It seems like people wouldn't be so racist, narrow minded and shallow when it comes to races and nationalities in these days and times. Why doesn't some people WANT to UNDERSTAND no one have the option to "chose" his or her nationality[-ies] nor race. We are born how we are borne in the races and/or nationalities given to us in our DNA, bloodline and genes. Many people are insulted for being bi-racial or mixed especially if they are mixed with African / Black African-American. Join us if you are mixed or bi-racial to share any of your experiences of discrimination or just to give us your opinion about this ongoing matter.

RIB Radio will have an artist feature with singer Laurelle. We will also be having a discussion with mothers with Bi-racial children to get their take on Kim Kardashian's rascim commentary and share their own eperiences.
White celebrities have made it a common practice to adopt black babies from foreign countries, providing them with a better life than they could have ever possibly imagined if they had remained in their homeland. We're flooded with images of single white female celebrities cuddling black babies. However, celebrities have the means to provide a lifestyle to a child uncommon to most people and are able to encase their children in a life outside the norm. There's no doubt they love their children and will offer them the best that money can buy, including exclusivity.
But what about "normal" people who adopt children outside their own race? Are they equipped to expose those children to their cultural heritage? Is it necessary to do so? Can they raise "normal" children of a different skin tone?
Join me when I talk to "Duncan", a bi-racial male, who was given up for adoption by his white mother (black father) in the late 1960's. He was adopted by a white family at 5 days old and has 3 siblings that are biological children of his adoptive parents. Duncan looks black on the outside but for a long time didn't understand that when he felt white on the inside. What does that mean?
Listen as he describes how he was not raised as a black man, but as a white man inside a black man's body. How did it turn out for him? Is love enough?
F.A.R. will discuss the subject of ethnic identification. We will discuss which ethnic name we feel Black people should embrace and which ones we should reject. We will also discuss whether or not bi-racial people are Black and where they fit in the discussion of how we identify ourselves as a nation. As always, the discussions are from an Afrikan-centered persepctive.
1st SEGMENT: COMMUNITY VIBE
TOPIC: "The Law Of Power & The Power Of Law...Abused" This week we open the discussion to ask the question of POWER and how it's abused and who it is that does it, What's it's appeal and how it captivates & seduces all those that stumble upon it...
2nd SEGMENT: BEHIND CLOSED DOORS
TOPIC: "Introducing...Love In TECHNICOLOR" Today we ask the question, "Is Love Color blind" and if it is should the rest of the world follow suit and become equally as so
Quite often, there are people who can be described as "a person for a time such as this."
Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Teddy Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and so many others come to mind. Looking back on the context of their times in history, we loft them into super human statuses and forget that they were born like the rest of us and they have died like we all will.
What unites all of these names from our history is the common trait that they had the courage to stand up, speak up and "ACT UP!!"
That last phrase Act Up comes from our featured guest for this episode of The #SocialSpitballShow.
Dixon D. White is a self-described redneck and reformed racist. Dixon has many experiences to draw from to elicit truth about race, which is, in part, that we cannot ignore it away. Dixon calls on fellow White Americans to embrace their "White Racial Responsibility" to speak up and ACT UP when they see racial hurt.
I personally love the term "Act Up" because it makes me think of a child misbehaving, but also the clever bumper sticker that says that "Well-Behaved Women Never Make History." It's true & fitting because we need to step outside of our "comfort zone" of complacency and condoning of a terrible history of racism and violence in this country.
This history of racism and violence manifests itself as much today as in the past. Racism is not over. We need to stand up to racism. With courageous folks like Dixon White speaking up and acting up on the subject, we can be sure to bring more healing and common ground.
Won't you tune in and hear from this amazing & inspiring man and others like him? Barbara and I are excited to get this conversation going...
Beyond the Horizon: Channeled messages from A Lemurian Shaman
GalacticU Radio Network welcomes our new Bi-Weekly Radio program 'Beyond the Horizon', Channeled messages from a Lemurian Shaman Okamahia, through a beautiful 90 year young woman Barbara. Okamahia does not speak english so upon meeting another Being named Nashka, channeled through RIchard, they soon found a beautiful balance in that Nashka translates Okamahia's messages into english for those who wish to speak to Okamahia and ask questions.
In designing the programs here at GalacticU Radio Network, I desired to have a program in which anyone could call in and ask any question pertaining to their own spiritual growth, so when I had these beautiful souls on a few weeks back, they were such a hit and so many of you wanted to see them return, that we made a new radio program just for all of you, at your request.
So in this program every other week YOU the listener are welcome to call in and ask any question about your life or the life you had before coming to this planet. Please keep your questions to 2 per caller then get back on the que if you would like more questions answered so that we can make time to get to as many people who want to call in and talk to Okamahia.
To do this, you must call 646-478-3085 press 1 when you get through. If you wish to ask more questions, press 1 again to take you off the que, then press 1 one more time to put you back in the que.
