Greetings to all our supporters (and detractors..what the hey)! Pull up a seat and listen to a new installment of our Mid Week in Review podcast airing this Wednesday at 7:30pm EST-courtesy of the Afronerd Radio machine. Join Capt. Kirk and Dburt as they attempt to shed light on the following topics: it appears that Dburt has additional thoughts about the recent racial controversies centering around the student body of the University of Missouri (the acronym SJW comes to mind); as expected, Black twitter appears to have a problem with not only director, Spike Lee's upcoming Chiraq film but his views on intraracial violence (sigh); Hollywood whitewashing continues with new The Gods of Egypt film (hint: no actual Egyptians were cast) and again, the cyberwebs react; and in a gross case of over-reaction, a 67 year old White woman gets arrested for pulling a gun on a Black man who was asking for a light and we will try to do some house cleaning by addressing issues we failed to tackle from previous broadcasts. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
A plethora of factors impact the development of black girls including racism, colorism, education, negative stereotypes, identity issues, socioeconomic issues, opportunities, disparate treatment, invisibility and diversity and inclusion, recognition, and their voices among other factors.
Join Dr. Culbreth, Dr. Denise Davis-Maye and Ms. kYmberly Keeton for an eye opening and thought-provoking discussion on the factors impacting the development of Black Girls and strategies to help Black girls reach higher ground.
Historically the diversity of girls and women of color has been ignored, insulted, and
“We live in a society that does not always embrace the diversity of girls and women of color. Research has thoroughly documented how negative stereotypes, negative perceptions, and standards of beauty do not include or embrace the diversity of girls and women of color. Low values placed on girls and women of color with respect to their voices, emotional needs, abilities, and physical attributes (hair, skin color, body image, and other phenotypes) affect the psychological, emotional, physical and social well-being of girls and women of color.” (Culbreth, 2014)
Join Dr. Culbreth and guests, Professor Celeste Atkins, Professor LaToya Lee and Dr. Julie Jung-Kim for a thought-provoking discussion on standards of beauty and how girls and women of color are treated disparately in society because of their skin color, race, hair, weight, etc. Topics will include colorism, racism, weight, body shamming, the foundation of beautiful among other topics and suggestions for moving forward.
There are a variety of stigmas associated with the various shades of “black” skin, within the black culture itself! For example: “…she’s pretty for a dark skinned girl…or, she’s dark, but she got good hair...”Terms like: “high yellow, blue-black, burple, redbone…” these are all phrases and terms some folks use within the black community to describe different shades of black skin. Each respective shade has some associated stigmas. In many cases you’d think it was the 1940’s, 50’s, or 60’s, but no! This is still happening in 2015.
What kind of psychological impact does it have on a person and the culture as a whole? What about the beautiful woman who is pretty and has a deep dark brown complexion? Should she be made to feel inferior because of her skin complexion? Or the guy that is perpetually told he is “soft or pretty” because he is light? Skin bleaching, over aggressive toxic behavior, the list goes on and on.
This is not only happening in the black community, but other ethnic groups deal with ‘COLORISM.’ What affects do you think colorism has on society and on individuals?

Social media has become the means of communicating, connecting, networking, sharing, and activism in the twenty-first century. We have witnessed social media as a medium for news, events, advertising, public shaming, and publishing, etc. However, the question of how social media impacts girls and women of color is one that promises to view social media in a different light.
Join Dr. Culbreth, Professor Charish Halliburton and Dr. Alessandra Rosa for an enlightening discussion on how social media impacts the lives of girls and women of color in the twenty-first century psychologically, emotionally, physically and socially. Topics include racism, colorism, and other isms, social justice, mixed race identity, movements, selfies, self-esteem, bullying, professionalism, education, politics, personal issue, bullying, dangers, risks, and the pros and cons of using social media among other topics.
Race and color barriers are still issues that affect the overall well-being and advancement of women of color in the millennium. Join Dr. Culbreth and guests, Professor Samii Kennedy Benson, Professor Charish Halliburton, Dr. Lata Murti, and Professor Evelyn Reynolds for a thought-provoking discussion on race and color barriers that attempt to stagnate the well-being and advancement of women of color. Topics include racism, colorism, white privilege, white superiority, occupational sabotage, lack of respect, interracial and interracial diversity, the problem with tolerance, education, inequality, on being marginalized, invisibility, disparate treatment, film, media and music industries, intimidation, standards of beauty, among a plethora of topics. The highlight of the show will be our esteemed guests’ recommendations and strategies for breaking down race and color barriers.

I NEVER UNDERSTAND WHY THERE'S THIS "BATTLE" BETWEEN WHOSE LIGHT SKIN AND WHOSE DARK SKIN. IT'S THAT ONGOING DEBATE/ARGUMENT/BULLSHIT I KEEP HEARING. I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ALL ABOUT MY OPINION ON THE MATTER AS A DARK SKIN WOMAN. HAVE YOU HAD THIS DISCUSSION WITH PEOPLE BEFORE? HAVE YOU BEEN PICKED ON FOR THE COLOR OF YOUR SKIN? WHY IN THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY DO WE HAVE THIS SELF HATE AND HATE TOWARDS OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS? THESE ARE MY QUESTIONS THAT I PLAN ON TACKLING AND HOPEFULLY ANSWERING!
IF YOU HAVEN'T LISTENED TO YESTERDAY'S SEGMENT, DEFINITELY DO SO!!
Join Dr. Culbreth for a commentary on what she has coined as the “Culture of Ignorance.” It is time to wake-up, stand-up, step-up and address the culture of ignorance, which continues to be the driving force responsible for the plethora of ills that continue to stagnate society. Will you take a stand? Where will you stand? With whom will you stand? On the side of equality, justice, and unity for all people or will you join the narrow-minded, illogical and biased members of society “consumed with immoral acts” (King) against the masses? We are at a crossroads in this country! Be a part of the change needed in this world!
