SORT BY Relevancy
Why are so many people of color from oppressed communities routinely disengaged when it comes to mainstream politics in the United States? What role has structural racism, white supremacy and capitalism played in this? What are some of the things that need to be done in order for historically oppressed people of color to develop vastly different (and more effective) political alternatives to the mainstream Democratic and Republican parties? Tune in to this show to hear the thoughts and perspectives of several college students regarding this issue, and many more.
The past few weeks, we've talked about some of the external forces that have wrecked havoc on African American society in America. From federal, state and local legislation, formal and implicit business policies and practices, and willing complicity and willfull ignorance of much of White America, African Americans have been subjected to disenfranchisement, discrimination and oppression in almost every aspect of life. These are forces we have little control over, and we fight to bring these truths and their impacts to people's knowledge.
But there are issues we face within our neighborhoods that are within our power to change that would serve us well, regardless of the outside forces. These issues may not change or affect the outside forces at - in fact, would really have no bearing on them at all - but they would return us to a quality of life that we seem to have lost, and at one time served to sustain us through times much more violent and desperate than these.
So today on Coffe, Current Events & Politics, we're going to begin a discussion about addressing some of the internal dysfunction in our neighborhoods, in order to find out how we can turn them around from the inside.
Dr. Gwendolyn Goldsby-Grant is a world renown psychologist, having written for Essence Magazine for over 30 years. her book The Best kind of Loving: A Black Woman's guide to Finding Intimacy, is a very sought after publication that addresses head-on the complex challenges in African American relationships. "In addition to the social dynamics affecting male-female communications in general, as African American, we carry the added burdens of myths and sterotypes that grow out of our real history of slavery, second-class citizenship and economic disenfranchisement," Dr. Grant explains.

As we continue into Black History Month we will discuss The Emasculation of the Black Man and all that it encompasses. In order to understand the history surrounding the destruction and stigmatization of the black male you must go back to 1712 and The Willie Lynch Movement (last week's show).
God made MAN to be the HEAD, the LEADER, and to have DOMINION over everything so when he is not able to withstand or uphold the responsibilities as the HEAD then everything in it's periphery suffer: i.e, family, children, women, etc.
We will discuss how slavery, prison/incarceration, poverty, homophobia, sexism, misogyny, hip-hop, and political disenfranchisement have all contributed to The Emasculation of the Black Man and what are some solutions to the problems we face today. We will also look at our freedom fighters past and present to see are we continuing the "fight' or have we become a "dream deferred."

"When a human being lives a life in which he or she enjoys freedom, justice and equality, awareness arises and one can focus on selfless giving - you qualify to be a parent because you are capable of the unconditional love that a parent has for a child.
But it is extremely difficult for Black people to get on and remain on this level, because we do not have freedom, justice and equality. We must give too much energy to the survival issues, which pull us down. This is why we cannot ignore our condition. Our freedom - or lack of - directly affects our ability to experience love and happiness in our community." Truth has come to you~
