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.

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.
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.
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?

We Revisit Ukrainian Documentary, "Family Portrait in Black and White." A documentary film about a loving but headstrong Ukrainian woman named Olga, and the stable family environment she is trying to create for 16 bi-racial children, she adopted. The children are of mixed Ukrainian and African heritage, and were given away by their Ukrainian mothers due to, the high rate of racism and neo-nazi beliefs that run rampant throughout the Ukraine.
This film shows a family working together and helping each other. It also shows how the Ukrainian Government do not enforce the weak hate laws in their country, nor do they protect children who are victims of hate crimes, like the ones in the film. Overall, the film is a beautiful story about love, sacrifice, and family. And the filmmakers have captured a moving and compelling story for all to see.
Ever wonder about your bi- racial friend, co- worker or neighbor? Do they go by black, white or “ other”? Join me on this weeks show for a real conversation with my guest Angela Weddle who grew up being bullied in the schools of New Orleans because she was “different in so many ways" and as a survivor of hurricane Katrina she knows how to make it in a world that is unsure of what category she fits under. She is an amazing artist, story teller and budding comedienne and she has found away to tell her story,share it through her work and help others all while coming from the perspective of being both a black AND a white woman..this should be interesting!
The Politics of Color and Race. The practice of passing — identifying with and presenting oneself as one race while denying ancestry of another — reached its peak during the Jim Crow era. Needless to say, the notion of having to "pass" as white is outdated and offensive, but as sociologists Nikki Khanna and Cathryn Johnson report in a new study, passing is still alive and well today. It just happens in the other direction.
For their study, Khanna and Johnson interviewed 40 biracial American adults about their racial identity, and were surprised by what they found: most people tended to suppress or reject their white ancestry altogether and claim to be entirely African American. join me tonight as we discuss whether most bi-racial people suppress or reject their white ancestry altogether and claim to be entirely African American. Tonight on my African American Political Slugfest Show, "if you can handle the truth."
Now tonight we will be talking about what Black history and the things that are good and bad about it that we see today. First glance most will think we are trying to be racial that's not the case. Most people think with emotion and not knowlege first so of coarse being who we are we are going to try to bridge some of these American gaps. Tune in from 7pm to 9pm central time be there or be square..
Getting every qualified loan funded is always important, but this is especially true as loan volumes fall. Every loan counts, which is the topic of today's broadcast. We have invited Tyler Sherman, CEO of Motivity Solutions, to come on the broadcast. Tyler says, "The first step to understanding pull-through is to measure it." He goes on to say, "Even though pull-through is considered critical, surprisingly few firms are able to effectively pinpoint causes and effects. Without clear indications of causes and effects, corrective steps cannot be taken to improve pull-through. They become victims of their own shortsightedness." Tune in to today's broadcast to learn the corrective steps that need to be taken to improve YOUR pull-through!
