    OUR COMMON GROUND :: " The Matter of White ManNess: The Bad Apple Argument NOT"

    in Politics Progressive

    OUR COMMON GROUND with Janice Graham


    Tonight:           " The Matter of White ManNess: The Bad Apple Argument NOT"

     police misconduct, college students singing songs of lynching Black people or elected officialswe are quick to defend the system as a whole and say that these are just examples of “a few bad apples”. We submit that such arguments are ‘bullshyt’. These problems are definitely systematic and "the bad apple arguments" do not pass the test of logic. 
    Does not a rotten apple pollute all the apples in the crate ? Or, is their bacteria in the crate which infects all the apples ? This racist behavior living in a “specialized white male culture’ living off of white privilege and supremacy is impossible. It pollutes and empowers whatever real or assumed power they are granted. Our children die and live by this system. Our tax dollars support it.

    In one of her blog posted..... "It’s very easy to become negative, feel frustrated and give up on our dreams.....


    If you keep in the forefront of your mind that hundreds of thousands of people have achieved their financial, health and personal goals, you’ve got to know that they aren’t smarter, luckier or work harder than you, THEY JUST KNOW  MORE.  All you have to do to Realize your Dreams is obtain the knowledge.  Copy Success."

    Literary Diva Presents: Life Isn't A Dress Rehearsal- Standing Your Ground!

    in Self Help

    Join us for our compelling series, "life isn't a dress rehearsal."


     


    On this episode we will discuss standing your ground with not so good situations and people. In life we all know that we will encounter situations and people who we don't like. Sometimes those people can at times get on our nerves and hurt us in a negative way.


     


    Those things can impact us in a bad way as well as the people around us. When those things impact us in such a way that's not good, then most people don't know what to do. It's up to you to find a way to face those things and move forward.


     


    Tune in as we discuss, standing your ground. Stay tuned and keep it locked.
