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.

Racial tension and violence in the Black community is at an all time high. People of all races are scared and also tired of not feeling safe in their own neighborhoods. Recent acts of violence, riots, and murders have set us all on edge.
Today I am honored to have as my guest Colin Flaherty.
Colin Flaherty is an award winning reporter and author of the #1 best selling book White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore it.
His new book is Knockout Game a Lie? Aww, Hell No.
Both books are about black mob violence, black on white crime and the Knockout Game.
His work has appeared in more than 1000 news sites around the world, including the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Time Magazine. His story about how a black man was unjustly convicted of trying to kill his white girlfriend resulted in his release from state prison and was featured on Court TV, NPR, The Los Angeles Times and San Diego Union-Tribune.
Thomas Sowell: ”Reading Colin Flaherty’s book made painfully clear to me that the magnitude of this problem is greater than I had discovered from my own research. He documents both the race riots and the media and political evasions in dozens of cities.” – National Review.
Sean Hannity: White Girl Bleed a Lot “has gone viral.”
Allen West: “At least author Colin Flaherty is tackling this issue (of racial violence and black on white crime) in his new book, White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore it.“
Los Angeles Times: “a favorite of conservative voices.”

The Intentional Paradigm Shift; Communities, Activism & Re-Creating the Village...
How far have we truly gotten in society? Is Post-Racial Society truly that or is it just a fancy cliche to bandaid the epidemic of hate?
Can we truly say that we are living amongst each other without predjudice and hate--or is that only true in "some" communities?
What ever happened to the Village raising a child and why aren't the voiceless heard?
Then....Special guest Kecia Johnson WOWS us with her story and what she is doing to change the stigma of HIV/AIDS! She has truly paved the way for many to follow!!!
These are some of the topics that will be discussed on the Mz OptimiZm Speaks radio show!
Is the concept of Race reality based or pseudoscience?
You can find scholars on both sides of this issue, but can you find real science that supports either side. Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri Thursday May 21 at 9 pm EST as we explore the concept of Race and the reason why such a distinction must be made. More importantly, who benefits from this notion? Who controls the way various Races are portrayed? How can we prove that Racial divisions are fact based classifications or simply the creation of a few racists with nefarious intentions?
You can reach the hosts at (917)889-2830
Log on and listen.
And remember to keep it clean and keep it real. #One
Hr1 David Bego, author of Devil at Our Doorstep, talks about unions, SEIU, cardcheck, right to work, immigration, and what all that has to do with the recent racial divide and riots in Ferguson, Baltimore, and New York.
Hr2 Boy Scouts say don't teach little boys how to fire water guns, it might teach them... what?! How about you could teach them to respect life, and gun safety? It's about values, not weapons.
Corey Duncan, Baltimore correspondent joins Joe to talk about what's REALLY going on over there now that things are supposedly simmered down. City government has turned their backs on law enforcement. The new Attorney General leaves much to be desired. And Michelle Obama is an angry black woman.
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
