On today’s episode of Mixed Race Radio, we will meet Lola Osunkoya, author of the blog, Neither/Both and of Neither/Both LLC, a private practice focused on counseling and community building in the Mixed-Race community. Join me today as Lola shares details and insights from her trip to Nigeria in 2006 when she went to meet her father and began to explore Identity even deeper.
“I am Mixed-Race. The experience of being “neither/both” – living among and between two races/cultures – expands beyond being Mixed. I find the experience is similar to Trans-Racial adoptees and the children of immigrants growing up first generation in America. And frankly, the experience can be similar among anyone Of Color who regularly crosses culture. Our experience begins with our families of origin, so I also include parents of the community and people in interracial relationships.”
By day, Lola is a mental health clinician working toward licensure as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC). She was born and raised in Minneapolis, MN and her interest in Mixed Race identity development was born out of her personal experience as the daughter of a White American mother and Nigerian father. At all other times, Lola explores historical components affecting individuals who self-identify as Black/White Biracials.
We will discuss some common experiences in Mixed Race identity and their effects on mental health, Mixed-Race identity development theoretical models, Adler's Social Interest and Mixed Race community, AND IF THAT WASN’T ENOUGH, Lola will discuss her "Mixed in Mpls" project and Stereotype vulnerability.

Perhaps not surprisingly, many in the industry are nervous about the book's publication this week, fearing that it will expose some of the top black names in music and Hollywood as secretly gay. But Dean said that his memoir was not intended as a way of outing famous people. 'I was never tempted to name any names. The book is not about outing people. I wrote it so that people realise the industry has a gay subculture and we are part of this music,' he said.
That gay hip hop subculture certainly seems to be thriving. Dean's book describes a world where many industry executives and some artists are leading secret gay lives, which are often obvious to everyone but rarely talked about. And, despite using some false names, the book contains enough information so that it will undoubtedly spark off a frenzy of speculation as to who some of the characters are in real life.
For example, Dean describes 'Lola', a singer who is a lesbian and had to keep her sexuality secret. And 'Gus', a male rap artist who appeared on television in typical 'gangsta' style yet hid a secret gay life. Then there are the other hints of big-name celebrities close to the hip hop business who are also gay. They include 'Lucas', a married A-list movie star, and 'Kareem', a leading sitcom actor.
It has gone to far. The police under the osprey of law enforcement shoot an unarmed citizen. They create an alibi, demonize the victim in the media, then repeat the vicious cycle over and over. We the people are paying for the war against them and they won't take it anymore. Law enforcement globally doesn't have as many lethal toys of destruction at thier disposal, is that why they don't have the same shocking statistics that people living in America have become accustomed to? It's time to take back the gloom and guns away from the enemy of the people. DISARM THE POLICE !! Antynette Houston, who has experienced Police Terrorists 1st hand in her high profile case. She speaks on her experience, her GOFUNDME campaign, and what the future holds for the falling law enforcement agencies nationwide.

This is a critical time in history. The people are being assaulted on live TV. The police are kidnapping children for CNN. There is absolutely no repercussions to police terrorism via the judicial system so people are creating their own justice and taking to the streets. There are uprisings in Baltimore and all over. We will NOT take you hunting down our progressive thinkers any longer. #HandsOffEJ and the rest of our young warriors that act and speak freely. Turn off your TV and defend our future. The Time is now!
