    The Black Face Controversy

    in Lifestyle

    The painful memory of Trayvon Martin, the young unarmed teen who was murdered by the self appointed neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman, has been revived by the insensitivity of those who believed it was acceptable to dress in black face and a bloody hoody for Halloween, 2013.  
    While the outrage of their poor costume choice has been wide spread over the internet, there are some in the black community that feel blacks are just too sensitive.  Are black people just "too sensitive" as it relates to black face and the racial connotations they represent?
    Join host Kay Quinn as she and co-hosts Raymond Kirk and Michael Flemons discuss this new fixation on the black face controversy. 
    REAL Talk is a community oriented show that focuses and engage dialog on very real issues that repeatedly plague and disenfranchise local communities.  It is designed to open the lines of communication to address the hard issues many are afraid to discuss in this climate of racial divide.
    We can no longer afford to walk around and ignore the elephant in the room.  This is our time to engage the proverbial elephant head on.

    The History of Black Face

    in Entertainment

    Hey gang.   So, with this one I'll riff a bit about black face and put a historical context behind what you see today so that you can better communicate with those that are apathetic.    I start the show with a very loud pop record to get the energy going.  I think I'll be doing that for every Sunday show.     In this episode I'll also riff very shortly about anti-rape shorts and some television program about a negro bed wench that I've watched, never will watch, but I've read about.    Here's a few links.    http://thegrio.com/2013/10/30/a-brief-history-of-blackface-just-in-time-for-halloween/   https://www.facebook.com/groups/wildwildleft/687981154547077/?comment_id=687995947878931&notif_t=like   https://www.facebook.com/FatherTeresasWineCellar http://www.policymic.com/articles/71161/company-wants-women-to-buy-these-anti-rape-shorts

    Black Face White Mind : The Effect of Integration on the Black Psyche

    in News

    The revolution of the mind continues...

    The first show in February and of course we pay tribute to Black history month. 

    Tonight at 10pm the MadMen debate the effect of integration in education. 

    We have now lived long enough to see the effects a integrated system had on the educational progress of the Black nation. 

    Did we "progress" and achieve racial harmony or was it like the "invasion of he body snatchers" ... Confirm to European historical ideologies believe in them like God or fail? 

    Was the Black identity further erased by the curriculum of exclusion of Black historical achievements in public schools or is the curriculum correctly based on nationalism and not identity?

    Won't be home? No problem. Text "WYMS" to 67000 and get the Loren in number sent directly to your phone 5 minutes to showtime.

    Modern Black Face, Offensive? (The Julianne Hough Factor)

    in Entertainment

    Tune in Monday October 28, 2013, as Stacey Brewer of H. Blu's Word, speaks on the topic: Modern Black Face, Offensive? The Julianne Hough Factor. 
    Julianne Hough's Halloween costume is stirring up quite the controversy, and rubbing people the wrong way. The Safe Haven actress showed up to a Halloween party in Beverly Hills, Calif., dressed in blackface on Friday, Oct. 25.   The 25-year-old was photographed dressed as the character Crazy Eyes (played by Uzo Aduba) from the new Netflix hit, Orange Is the New Black.   Hearing of the backlash, Hough quickly took to Twitter to respond the following day. "I am a huge fan of the show Orange is the New black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created," she wrote on Saturday, Oct. 26. "It certainly was never my intention to be disrespectful or demeaning to anyone in any way. I realize my costume hurt and offended people and I truly apologize."   Some, black and white, were not offended, others were. Brewer will discuss whether it is ever appropriate to wear "black face." We will get into the history of black face and how such history still affects us in the modern era.    Like Hampton Blu

    Home vs Get Hard, how hiding black people equals success.

    in Entertainment

    This weekend had it's own ironic twist. 

    in the face of a UCLA study claiming that diverse casting actually sells movies more there were two movies opening with two very different advertising campaigns. 


    Get hard, a movie Staring Kevin Hart and Will Farrel maketed their movies showing both, in fact selling the movie solely on both actors star power. Home, a movie with a diverse cast sold it's movie primarly on a fat cat and a purple alien. 

    the result? Home brought in 54 million dollars domestically and and another 26 internationally where as Get hard opened to 34 million dollars. 


    which begs the question does diversity really sell? or are people just tired of Kevin Hart.
