We probably see it everyday but do we really put any deep thought into it? We have not one but two White mothers of Black children to share with us their challenges, issues, triumphs and disappointments of raising their biracial children. These two women are Patty Candell and Leah Wagner and they are gonna put us onto a perspective that is rarely considered by the browner side of us. Well, maybe it is considered but other shows don't have the balls to do it like Urban Therapy with SUN will.
Do we care about their challenges? Are we aware of their challenges? Do we consider the way that they raise children who look like us to be the same way that we raise our children? Do they feed their kids the same things that we eat? How do they deal with disciplining their children? Is it all calm talk, reasoning and time outs?
How do they do their daughter's hair? Where do they get their son's hair cut? What happens when their children ask what race they are and why mommy and daddy look so different? What happens when deeper cultural, heritage and identity questions and issues arise should they come up? How do White mothers deal with their children's peer pressure to date, dress, talk and act BLACK so to speak? What happens if they talk WHITE?
How does the White mother handle the looks and stares that some may give when they go to register their children for school or when they have to interact with other parents who have not been in interracial relationships and may be negatively judgemental about this?
On this show we will hear firsthand the way that a White woman feels when she is around Black women who may feel some kind of way about them "taking" their Black men and if that is even the case?
Barack Obama's ego gets the best of him as he is interviewed by Al Sharpton discussing why certain senators are shying away from asking the president to campaign with them. Lancaster 3801 looks at the damage done by Kermit Gosnell. Are these attacks on the white house dry runs on a serious attempt to assasinate the president.?

Public schools are closing in cities across America and the ones that remain open are questionable when it comes to offering relevant information and preparation for life in a safe learning environment. But whereas public schools have often been dismal failures in America's urban areas, private, culturally based schools have had tremendous success. What is the missing ingredient. Haki and Safisha Madhubuti, founders of The Institute of Positive Education, discuss their journey as educators, publishers, and founders of several learning institutions that focus on African history and cultural values. As IPE prepares for an anniversary celebration this weekend, the Madhubutis reflect on the social andfinancial challenges involved in running independent schools.
Author KAREN GRECO & CABIN GODDESS didn't get to finish their chat Wed the 15th. We never discussed her obsession with Dracula & exorcism, what she likes on those wieners or the 38.74 foot Crocodile in the sewers of NYC. We never even got to the bottom of her dislike of coffee...Let ALONE get into the nitty grity of the new Hell's Belle book, TAINTED BLOOD! So we decided to Hell with it (grin) let's schedule more chat time!
Karen Greco has spent close to twenty years in New York City, working in publicity and marketing for the entertainment industry. Originally from Rhode Island (she loves hot wieners from New York System, but can't stand coffee milk), she studied playwriting in college (and won an award or two).
After not writing plays for a long time, a life-long obsession with exorcists and Dracula drew her to urban fantasy, where she can decapitate characters with impunity.
Her first novel, Hell's Belle, was released in 2013. Tainted Blood is the second book in the best-selling Hell's Belle urban fantasy series.

TAINTED BLOOD (Helle's Belle Series #2)

No wonder she still can’t get a date.
