The Effects of Colorism on Girls and Women of Color: An Interview with the Award Winning Filmmaker of Yellow Fever, Ng’endo Mukii.
Join Dr. Culbreth and Kenyan filmmaker Ng'endo Mukii for a discussion on Ms. Mukii's film Yellow Fever, a film focusing on the effects of colorism on the self-image and self-esteem of girls and women of color.
On this episode of Field Afrikan Radio we will be discussing two topics. The first topic we will discuss is colorism in the so-called Black community. Can someone not be "Black" enough? Can someone rap about "Blacker the Berry" while having a fiance' that represent the extreme opposite. Is colorism a real problem in Black America? The second topic we will be discussing is the the use of the word n*gga. Does that word hold Black people back? Can someone be revolutionary yet use that word? Those are some of the questions we'll discuss. Join us.
The issue of colorism in the black diaspora is as old as slavery and colonialism itself. Any discussion of the topic brings up many painful incidents of childhood and every black person seems to have a story to tell about how it has affected their lives in some way. The various issues that exist around skin shade have affected the way that black people view themselves and each other. Of particular interest is the effect and impact that colorism has had on dark skinned black women. Rashida Marie Strober is taking on the task of tackling the issue and speaking out against the discrimination that dark skinned women have faced and bringing to the forefront the impact it has had on their well being emotionally and psychologically. Join us for a lively discussion of her new book and the topic of colorism in the black community. CALL IN WITH QUESTIONS: 347.215.8933
On this episode of Field Afrikan Radio we will be discussing colorism and what is Black and what isn't Black. Does the lightness or darkness of a person's skin matters when dealing with Black militantcy? We will also discuss the continuous systematical murders of Black men by racist police.
Is there any significance to knowing who you are beyond your hue?
Kentronn Malmadh will dive into this topic on 'The Truth Is NOW' Radio Show this April 7th, 2015 at 9:00 PM EST. Call 646.378.0516 to listen and ask questions LIVE!
In this podcast, we will discuss the concept of race versus tribe, and why colorism might be a trap for our people. We will cover tribalism, lineage, and nationality from a scriptural point of view. Learn the way that "black people" define themselves across the globe, and find out why the Negro is so much more than the color of his skin.

Is White Better? The lighter you are does that make you prettier? Smarter? More desirable. Many women of color are using bleaching elements to make themselves lighter. And if they are not using the chemicals they may also be doing it by photoshopping to make them appear lighter aka whiter. What does this do for a woman's self esteem? Where is this coming from?
Tonight we have Ng'endo Mukii, Animator of “Yellow Fever” interview. She is a Kenyan animator, director, and editor. She has created a powerful film that deals with this practice of bleaching skin and how the decision to do so in ingrained in little black girls at a very young age.

It's hight time that we keep matters simple, folks. Welcome to the latest episode of Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review broadcast airing this Wednesday at 7:30pm. Join your hosts Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they decipher the following current event stories: thanks to Gawker.com, it appears we get further insight into the mystery man that operates one of the leading international shock sites, WorldstarHipHop.com; picking up from where we left off from the last show, Dburt believes that he has coined the naming of a theory he dubs steamroller or "locomotive" politics pertaining to the Dolce & Gabbana designer babies controversy (incl. a daughter of a same sex couple that ironically does not support gay marriage); Is ESPN's Stephen A. Smith right about Blacks needing to defect to the GOP (Dburt says "yes" but you knew that); Japan chooses a Blasian Miss Japan and many on the homogeneous island are not pleased; highlighting news of a 100m set aside for African tech entrepreneurs with hopes of creating a million jobs in the continent; X-files returns to FOX after a 13 year lapse. And lastly, more racial stories that are national and international in origin (Starbuck's failed race initiative; Brazil's colorism microaggressions and a Chinese restaurant in Kenya refusing Black patrons...in a Black country). Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
I spoke on TRS (Talk real solutions) for the last time on March 21, 2015. Why was it the last time. Because the show's hosts refuse to let their emotional rants, and disjointed arguments die. As opposed to being another place to bring people together who are concerned about the death and destruction of black people, sadly TRS typically is a place to rant, without any tangible solutions. Worse, Tyronne and Supreme, although they do often make great points, allow their emotions and lack of true understanding of History to taint their rants. Further, they target and BULLY certain callers that may not agree with their (often weak) flawed arguments and proceed to use ad hominem attacks, etc on such callers. How is this related to black media generally. Black media usually (not always ) lacks intellect, stimulation and real organization and professionalism. And it hates to be critiqued, and has a I AM SUPERIOR complex. Do I have faults. Yes. But I try to address them, and own up to them. Sadly TRS, and most black media and hosts, refuse to even back up when their research is limited and their positions flawed. It will be difficult to help empower black people when so many black celebrities, radio hosts, etc live for FAME and bullying as opposed to black power. I hope that this messages reaches people and that Tyronne and Supreme decide to grow up and be more civil Until then, I refuse to waste time on TRS, even though there are still some very good people that go there to chat, I refuse to be driven into disjointed discussions, and limited intellectual dialog. I will continue to seek ways to ensure that black people, any oppressed group of humans, get justice, knowledge, power. I don't have all answers but I sure do my best with the resources at my disposal, to try and help. POWER TO THE PEOPLE. Self defense not blind violence and ignorance. Hotep Kenyatta
