"Seeing Color: Colorism and the Black Community"
“If you’re black, stay back;if you’re brown, stick around;
if you’re yellow, you’re mellow;if you’re white, you’re all right.”
Colorism disadvantages dark-skinned people, while privileging those with lighter skin. Research has linked colorism to smaller incomes, lower marriage rates, longer prison terms and fewer job prospects for darker-skinned people.

Michael Vick being the targert of a new petition requesting a ban of his participation in the Jets' training camp is another blatant attack on African-Americans' right to exist as people in our country. The message that African-Americans must be punished severely for any degree of an offense while their Caucasian counterparts are entitled to be rehabilitated is clear in the massive murder-by-numbers game played by law enforcement officials, judicial injustice, and blatant emasculation orr elimination of our assigned village leaders--the Black men.
Imprisonment, police brutality, discriminatory disciplinary actions and other things have all been implemented for one purpose...to remove our Black men from their natural born roles as Leaders of their community. With all of the outside forces already coming at African-American men in masses, has the birth of the new "independent woman" now added to the emascualting of our Black men...reducing their roles to slot-fillers in sex or sperm donors in the relationship?
The most controversial figure in adult entertainment presents a no holds barred discussion about the future of the business. Rob's insight is spawned from having grown up around the adult biz, as his father owned several adult bookstores throughout Western New York.
Rob was the owner of Extreme Associates, which was at the time considered an outlaw in the biz because of its edgy content. Such fare is commonplace now.
Rob and his wife Lizzy Borden paid an extreme price for innovating adult, as both spent a year in prison on federal obscenity charges.
Rob also owned XPW - Xtreme Pro Wresting, which was one of the top wrestling organizations in the world, with a weekly national TV show, employing such superstars as Shane Douglas, X-Pac, Sabu and the late Chris Candido. XPW folded in 2003 after Extreme was indicted.
Join Rob and his friends for a lively 2 hours of explicit talk. No topic is off limits. No subject is taboo.
How many times have you been to a black owned business and either was displeased with the service or a lack thereof? How many times have you went to yelp or the white pages and took the time to right a good review of a black owned business? If you can count on one hand then that's a reality check. Is it the fault of our own or the business owner that we didn't have a pleasant experience at their business? Did that one bad experience turn us off to any future dealings with black establishments? Do we think that other races, white, chinese, jews, have a better quality service or product? It is something to think about. Maintaining or starting a business is a challenge in itself but when you add the race card on top of that, it then becomes a double challenge. We then, just like everything else, have to work extra hard to avoid or put an end to that stigma that black business just don't offer the same quality service as their competitors. Hopefully this show will shed light on how we can make the black business support / experience much more enjoyable. Other races have support from their races, how great would it be to get that same love and support for our own. Call in at (347) 855-8637 to share an experience as a patron, business owner or share a positive review with a black business that you just recently visited. Let's start a riot!
