Talking about Colorism Out in the Open
Reba Riley is the debut author of Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome: A Memoir of Humor & Healing In 30 Religions, the founder of the Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome community online, and a blogger at Patheos.com
Reba grew up in a fundamentalist Christian home where the wallpaper & dinner napkins featured Bible verses, & the Smurfs were considered demonic. She told her kindergarten class the letters of Santa's name could be arranged to "Satan." Reba’s 10,000 hours of education included evangelical schools, Christian college followed by a stint at the Focus of the Family Institute with Dr. James Dobson, and an intensive ministry training program at a megachurch in Colorado Springs—a program that swiftly kicked her out when she shared her religious doubts with the leadership. Reba lost everything - including herself. Enter Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome.
Reba got sick. Really sick. With a near-debilitating chronic mystery illness doctors couldn’t diagnose or treat. At 29, the illness made her vulnerable enough that she finally had to face the fact she’d avoided for the better part of a decade: her spirit was sicker than her body. Reba decided to undertake a spiritual recovery program: she would visit thirty religions before her thirtieth birthday—not to find a religion, but to find peace.
Through her adventures, Reba realized she didn’t have to choose religion to choose God…or good. She discovered sometimes we have to get lost to get found. Two years after completing her thirty religions project and eighteen months after recovering from her illness, Reba is here to share dispatches from her journey of healing.

Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP from www.teachmetotalk.com as she answers an SLP's questions about treatment with 2 of her little clients. We'll be looking at the diagnostic differences between apraxia and dysarthria and the treatment differences she should consider for this little one with Down syndrome who is signing but has a very limited spoken vocabulary. The second client is a 3 yo little boy with severe expressive/receptive delays who is using some phrases at times. The SLP is considering a diagnosis of selective mutism, but we'll explore other possibilities. It's going to be a great show with lots of practical tips for differential diagnosis in addition to treatment ideas!
A representative from Ruby's Rainbow will be with us to talk about their program designed to "grant scholarships to adults with Down syndrome who are seeking post-secondary education, enrichment or vocational classes."

Skin Color, whether we want to believe it or not, is still the elephant in the living room in the hearts of Black people the world over.
While many Black people will readily cry out at the first sign of what they may feel is an encounter with racism, some of those same individuals will execute the same twisted mentality when dealing with people who are of their own race.
Other races of people will look on from the outside of this type of hypocrisy and remain befuddled as it just doesn't seem to add up properly.
How can one complain about being prejudged because of the color of their skin yet turn around and do the same damn thing to some of their own?
Most would agree that this behavior has been internalized after being made to believe that we are truly inferior after hundreds of years of mental indoctrination while in slavery.
This is the case all the way up to the present time with the media brainwashing that continues to perpetuate these foolish myths.
Too many Black people are buying into this hook, line and sinker!
"SOME" Blacks who are of a lighter skin complexion can oftentimes feel superior to those who are darker. Many (BUT NOT ALL!) darker complected Blacks feel as sense of inferiority when compared to the lighter skinned Blacks when it comes to the expected treatment that they feel they will get when going up for a job or being considered by a potential romantic partner.
Let me officially say that THIS IS NOT ALL!
But many of us who are truly conscious and know better can sometimes slip into this twisted way of thinking in our everyday lives.
While many will defend those hateful practices of plastic surgery to alter their features or bleaching cream to lighten their skin, the fact of the matter is that self hate is a huge business and those who seek to profit from it is are all wolves in sheeps clothing.

On The Curepanel Talk Show this week, we launched a new talk series on rare cancers/diseases, discussing Lynch syndrome and its Emotional implications with Megan Myers, a genetic counselor at UCSF, and Georgia Hurst and David Dubin who are Lynch syndrome survivors and advocates.
Lynch Syndrome is characterized by the inheritance of genetic defects in the MLH1, MSH2, MSH6 and PMS2 genes, and predisposes families to developing colorectal cancer and endometrial cancer in women.
The panel discussion educated the audience about the genes linked to Lynch Syndrome and their association to other diseases, including the diagnosis, treatment and management of Lynch syndrome. In addition the panelists emphasized the importance of seeing a genetic counselor before and after testing, who can help deal with the emotionally taxing diagnosis of the disease, explain about its implications and screening measures, provide information about support groups, and also encourage other family members to get tested.
The Cure Panel Talk Show Team thanks the panelists and the audience for a very informative discussion.
For details of our upcoming shows please mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
