SORT BY Relevancy
The term discrimination is too often associated with racism versus disability. In addition, racism and discrimination are frequently related in the U.S. media to the victimization of African-Americans and other Non-White groups by White Americans. As a result, African-American students with mental/learning or physical disabilities are often overlooked as they face the challenges of higher education and workforce success. Dr. Applewhite is joined by Special Guest Professor Kelmer Muhammad (Educator, Entrepreneur, Author) to discuss discrimination and realistic solutions. This is a previous broadcast aired on 11-16-13 as “Students Discuss Reality of Discrimination We appreciate your one time or monthly donation of at least $5 or more to continue our radio broadcasts and help our students and Veterans with disabilities, in reaching their education and workforce goals?

The country been engaged in peaceful protest for the injustice of Eric Garner and Michael Brown. Police brutality is happening so much in this nation to the point it's a everyday occurence. Our elected officials stay quiet while the country is angry and want change in police culture. Will the protest work? Will we see change with police?
Quite often, there are people who can be described as "a person for a time such as this."
Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Teddy Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and so many others come to mind. Looking back on the context of their times in history, we loft them into super human statuses and forget that they were born like the rest of us and they have died like we all will.
What unites all of these names from our history is the common trait that they had the courage to stand up, speak up and "ACT UP!!"
That last phrase Act Up comes from our featured guest for this episode of The #SocialSpitballShow.
Dixon D. White is a self-described redneck and reformed racist. Dixon has many experiences to draw from to elicit truth about race, which is, in part, that we cannot ignore it away. Dixon calls on fellow White Americans to embrace their "White Racial Responsibility" to speak up and ACT UP when they see racial hurt.
I personally love the term "Act Up" because it makes me think of a child misbehaving, but also the clever bumper sticker that says that "Well-Behaved Women Never Make History." It's true & fitting because we need to step outside of our "comfort zone" of complacency and condoning of a terrible history of racism and violence in this country.
This history of racism and violence manifests itself as much today as in the past. Racism is not over. We need to stand up to racism. With courageous folks like Dixon White speaking up and acting up on the subject, we can be sure to bring more healing and common ground.
Won't you tune in and hear from this amazing & inspiring man and others like him? Barbara and I are excited to get this conversation going...
Does it seem like racism in America has increased since the election of Barak Obama as President of the United States in 2008? Well, it certainly seems so. What is it like to be Black in today's "post- racial" America? We'll be discussing that and more today, along with some awesome political poetry pieces on Eddie Caine Radio.
In the wake of the Indiana RFRA flap and the Memories Pizza situation that followed, I wanted to revisit some stories this week that again focus on a class of people who are truly being discriminated against for who they are in this country. Those people are the Christians in this country who stand on their principles of faith. Today I wanted to talk about what's going on with a Christian college and a Massachusetts school district. I also wanted to discuss a bakery with a different slant on it in Colorado. And there's a couple of articles again concerning the fallout of the the Indiana RFRA battle that I'll share as well.
That's at 4:30 Eastern time and archived after that.
Tune in to Phase 2 Radio interviews of exclusive coverage On Tuesday March 31, more than 200 activists, faith leaders, civil rights leaders and allies joined together at the Central Presbyterian Church across from the Capitol to rally against RFRA. We marched from their to the Capitol steps to deliver messgages to the elected officials of Georgia.Georgia will not stand for an Indiana-style “license to discriminate.” Phase 2 Radio Executive producer Kareema Ali-Bowens participated in the march. State Troopers demanded we move off the sidewalks , however all the marchers moved over chanted and carried signs that read No Discrimination In Georgia. The measure, SB 129, stalled when anti-discrimination language was added to it. But the critics fear that it could still pass the state legislature by Midnight Thursday, the end of the 2015 session. However
Those against it believe it would allow for discrimination against gays, lesbians, and other groups, including African Americans.
Is That Discrimination again? What is the current tide of discrimination. Who are winners and losers of discrimination? Does our culture foster discrimination. Is that a quality that is learned and past down from generation to generation. How does today's generation address discrimination. How much progress have we made in the area of discrimination. Even though we have advanced, why does discrimination rears its head with progress. What role does the government play in fostering discrimination? How do we rid of ourselves of discrimination?
(NOTE: Today’s March 22, 2015 is a prerecorded repeat show on racial images in worship)
Imam W. Deen Mohammed gave us C.R.A.I.D. early in his leadership (circa 1978) and it was quite effective. C.R.A.I.D. is an acronym for “COMMITTEE for the REMOVAL of ALL IMAGES that attempt to portray the DIVINE”.
There is Facebook discussion on racial images in worship. This noble effort is investigating the best methods for reviving CRAID. What do you think about C.R.A.I.D. in today’s world?
Another Facebook group I manage is titled "GIVE GOD NO COLOR." (https://m.facebook.com/groups/136138373208123)
It has been widely received and opened the following exchange:
Last winter one of our Focolare friends shared with me a beautiful report. While planning for their annual "Day of Christian Unity" the company that supplies the artwork for this special day sent them a very; as she described it, "a very white American looking image of Jesus." However due to her being a part of our FB group "GIVE GOD NO COLOR" and her love for our concern she called the supply company and told them that they could not accept such an image or any racial depictions. This is very significant. We thank Allah for bringing Imam W. Deen Mohammed and the blessed lady Chiara Lubrich and their respective communities together as ONE! This is a way to advance the message of C.R.A.I.D. to an audience that we could probably never reach.
Join WORDS MAKE PEOPLE on Sunday March 22, 2015 as we discuss C.R.A.I.D; its history and relevancy today. (NOTE: This is a prerecorded repeat show)
Although the list continues to grow of of companies that have thrown their support behind the lgbtq equal rights movement. Still some companies remain steadfast in their desire to maintain the standard, "Keep it to yourself" mentality. DONT ASK DONT TELL yet lives in some circles.
We use this episode to explore the enviroment that forces many to hide who they are for 40 hours (in some cases more) of the week.
Also expecting a guest appearence by my main main Will from Father Teresa's Wine celler and many other stellar projects.
Cop a squat and lets discuss what's T with corparate America!
Has CEMEX SAB de CV (CEMEX ADR) enaged in REVERSE DISCRIMINATION? It appears that CEMEX has a double standard policy, which allows for minorities with criminal convictions to gain, maintain and retain employment at its US operations while other groups are denied employment. According to CEMEX's own company policy, they have a zero tolerance for drugs and alcohols, yet members of their management team have criminal convictions. As African Americans move for equality, the issue must be address with fairness. The issue of reverse discrimination and double standards in hiring practices has been submitted to President Karl H. Watson, Frank Craddock of Operations and Mike Egan, General Counsel, but to no avail.
