SORT BY Relevancy
In a time where things change so rapidly and rampantly, I would like to visit the idea of defining what's normal, and what's not normal. Over the course of years, we understand that things change often, so with those changes occuring, do we consider what USED TO BE NORMAL, NO LONGER NORMAL? Are things that are considered to be "Normal", forever changing? Once something "new" becomes normal, does that mean the "old" thing is no longer normal?
Is texting the social norm, over verbally communicating?
Is wearing jeans and sneakers to church a social norm?
Is meeting someone on social media the social norm, over meeting someone in person?
Is same sex marriage the social norm, over marrying the opposite sex?
Is it a social norm for the woman to be the financial provider, and not the man?
Is it a social norm for animal lives to be equally as important as a human's life?
Is it a social norm, for kids to no longer get whippings?
We will talk about these norms and others.

Living in a world where society chooses to live by arbitrary norms seems contradictory to a generation that has produced self-made millionaires and billionaires under the age of 30 in addition to having such a major influence on brands by just being themselves. Yet I question why most aren’t playing by their own rules as it relates to gender roles, the way we behave [especially in romantic relationships], and how we easily allow ourselves to be influenced by media and music. My guests join me to break down their perspectives and personal experiences, and the idea of ‘playing by our rules’ coming into play.

Not the easiest topic but did you know that social anxiety is more common than you might think.
Do you find yourself avoiding certain social situations out of fear of being judged? Or maybe you don't even know why you have anxiety, but you will go out of your way to avoid talking to people in certain situations. You may be suffering from social anxiety.
You want to meet people, make friends, and share yourself with the world, but social interactions can be nerve wracking for all of us. People with social anxiety constantly doubt their social adequacy, and worry about what might happen if people don’t like them or if they say or do the wrong thing. Although therapy can be very useful for people who suffer from social anxiety disorder, there a number of techniques you can try to cure your anxiety without the need for professional help.

Emily Koch an ESL instructor who is teaching ESL for the Newcomer Program in Utica. This program is for young refugee students ages 17 - 21 who were not accepted by the highschool.

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...
