Tonight on Real Men Speak, the discussion on the show is going to be about hazing. There has been a few major events in the public schools and in the private sector. Let me ask the question to you, do you know what hazing is; what hazing does and what hazing can help prevent?
In the public and private school sector recently there has been an accusation of inappropriate touching and different tactics of hazing that were performed at schools. We need to have this discussion on hazing to understand the history of it.
Another word for hazing is initiation. On the show tonight I’ll talk about my initiation into organizations that I belong and I encourage our listening audience to maybe call in tonight and share some of their hazing moments. Although I am going to be careful on how I address this issue I do want to say that levels of hazing have helped me to become a better man. Are we taking it just a little bit too serious?
Real Men Speak, let’s discuss
RECENTLY THERE HAS BEEN EXAMPLES OF HAZING GONE AWRY.
HAZING HAS LONG BEEN A PART OF TRADITION FROM THE NFL, COLLEGE, AND EVEN HIGH SCHOOL .
MANY BELIEVE HAZING IS A RITE OF PASSAGE, BUT HOW FAR SHOULD HAZING GO?
IS HAZING A TRADITION THAT SHOULD ELIMINATED COMPLETELY?
THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THE QUESTIONS WE WILL ATTEMPT TO ANSWER ON THE SHOW TODAY.
At a New Jersey high school, seven football players, ages 15 to 17, were arrested on a number of charges, including aggravated criminal sexual contact, in connection with alleged attacks against four other players. The school canceled the season. How could something like this happen in 2014? A lot has to do with notions of masculinity in the locker room and homophobia is a part of that. We explore the issue with an openly gay high school basketball coach and two former college football players who were gay on their teams.
This week on #LFCRadio we will talk about the Consequences of Hazing. FAMU is in the midst of a tragedy for the family of Robert Champion, The Marching 100 Band and Kappa Kappa Psi Fraternity. But beyond the issues that they are dealing with in Tallahassee, it has a ripple effect throughout the world of Black social organizations. Hazing is one of the realities, whether completely real or slightly embellished, that is a big part of the history of black college life. Whether it be some of the obvious physical pledging techniques like “taking wood” and “branding”, or some of the other techniques that may be unique and ritualistic to each individual organization, there are many forms of voluntary abuse that has been compared to injustices suffered by our ancestors during slavery.

Congratulations!!! The moment you and your parents have been planning and waiting for: College! But, and yes there is a big but. Parents are we really preparing our children for real college campus life and the many pitfalls they may face and have to overcome? Campus life is about so much more than sororities, fraternities, parties and meeting new people from all over the world. There are very serious and often dangerous issues facing new college students and because no one is having those conversations, they walk in with their eyes wide shut.
On this show, we will zero in on some of those pitfalls from campus assaults to tragic hazing to see just how much parents really know and how aware they are making their new college bound students!

"Are Black Fraternities & Sororities Still Relevant?"
Each organization can boast of many famous and acclaimed members within its ranks. Each organization has contributed much to the communities they serve through scholarships, leadership development, social action and philanthropic endeavors. Unfortunately, each organization can also lay claim to its share of shameful activities, including thuggish campus hazing, elitist membership selection practices (i.e. selecting or refusing membership on the basis of skin color or hair texture), and misuse of organization funds for personal gain. The question posed today to guest Felicia Commodore is "Are Black Fraternities & Sororities STILL Relevant?
