    Cool Queers and Representation in Television

    in LGBT

    A discussion of how the media is slowly yet surely accepting more of the LGBTQ community on television. No longer are they just simply there for comedic relief, but are actually having their own lead roles in a new show, or as extremely important supporting characters. Tonight, we talk about shows coming up that should have more representation or doing a great job doing so. And past shows that were just teaming with wonderful array of the LGBTQ community.

    Community Representation - Are we scared we don't get what we deserve?

    in Entertainment

    I often wonder if the staunch defense of problematic icons in marginalized communities is some sort of residual internalized self hate? Or desperation? Or both?


    what would happen if we smashed all the pedestals of the rapists, misogynists, and domestic abusers in the black community?


    Not to say these types of predators and abusers don't exist in white communities- but white people have more visibility and more options. I know Rape and domestic Violence are underreported in white communities as well, so we may well be consuming movies and music by abusers. But when consuming white media I can easily choose to watch horror movies not affiliated with Polanski. I can watch comedies not directed by woody Allen or starring Sean Penn.


    But if I want to watch a nostalgic family friendly tv show featuring a black family and I ditch "the Cosby show"... I've got... "family matters". Those were the only 2 mainstream black family shows I remember from my childhood. Those were the only places I could watch people who looked like me, had hair like me, dealt with confusion about dating, family, growing up, and racism all at the same time.


    Is that why the black community hesitates to shun abusers in our midst? Because we won't have any representation if we cut out the bad people? Or is it because we think we don't deserve better representation and we secretly believe the lies we've been fed about ourselves?


    Is it a mix of both? Don't we deserve better? Both in terms of more representation and better role models? 
    Why don't we demand more for ourselves? Are we scared we don't deserve more or scared we won't get what we deserve?

    Constitution Study Radio: Lesson 24 -Losing State Representation in Congress

    in Politics Conservative

    Through the Constitution with Douglas V. Gibbs


    The 17th Amendment removed State representation in the federal government, centralizing the government in Washington, and diminishing the voice of the States.  Ratified during the progressive era, the amendment changed the dynamics of the American System, opening a path for tyranny in the central government.  By eliminating the States' ability to participate in the federal government, it removed their influence regarding their own interests, and introduced ideology into the Senate, placing the powers of advise and consent into the hands of directly elected officials.


    Join Douglas V. Gibbs of Political Pistachio as he journeys through the United States Constitution, examining the concepts, principles, and direct text of the U.S. Constitution from the original point of view of the Founding Fathers.


    New episodes Sunday Mornings, 9:00 am Pacific Time. Visit Constitution Study Radio for all podcasts.


    Doug's book, 25 Myths of the United States Constitution is available on Amazon, and CreateSpace.

    in Current Events

    Hello,


    Welcome to A Theory of Parenting on Blogtalkradio.com


    My name is Tammi Joyner 


    I am your Host for the Show


    Today we are live from Rockefeller Center in NYc


    Throughout the year, the Rockefeller Center Channel Gardens blooms in uniquely themed plant installations that transform with the seasons. 


    Visit the Channel Gardens to see the April Showers installation on display from April 20 through May 31.


     


    Designed specifically for Rockefeller Plaza, Masks (Pentagon) consists of five masks ranging in height from 14.5 to 16.5 feet, each of which reflects a different approach to the stylized representation of the human face, from the clearly recognizable to the highly abstracted. 


    The five masks, which were cast from clay in industrial-strength synthetic plaster, stand on a stepped base made from massive beams of unfinished redwood. The back of each element of the sculpture reveals the artists method of construction – a grid-like armature of rebar inlaid with hemp and plaster.


    Rockefeller Center is home to a remarkable collection of art deco motifs and sculptures signifying man’s development in spirit, science, industry and more.

    Let's Celebrate Lei Day-May Day Hawai'i Style!

    in Spirituality

     In 2001, our Senator, Danial Kahikina Akaka, during a May 1 address, said, " 'May Day is Lei Day' in Hawaii. Lei Day is a nonpolitical and nonpartisan celebration. Indeed, its sole purpose is to engage in random acts of kindness and sharing, and to celebrate the Aloha spirit, that intangible, but palpable, essence which is best exemplified by the hospitality and inclusiveness exhibited by the Native Hawaiians -- Hawaii's indigenous peoples -- to all people of goodwill."


         A lei is not just flowers strung on a thread. A lei is a tangible representation of aloha in which symbols of that aloha are carefully sewn or woven together to create a gift. This gift tells a story of the relationship between the giver and the recipient. many things can make up a lei. One can string flowers, seeds, shells, or berries into a lei. One can weave vines and leaves into a lei. Once can weave words into a poem or song, which is then a lei. The ultimate expression of a lei is kamalei - the child which represents the intertwining of aloha between the parents.


         Today's program is our Lei Aloha to you for supporting Da Coconut Wireless and assisting us to Spread The Aloha around our World!  Hoihoi na Aloha Mele ... enjoy the great music!
