SHOW NOTES: In the MYTH WARRIORS™ series we are targeting ideas to begin to assess whether they are credible or not. We are warriors fighting to establish clarity between what is accurate and what is simply a myth (or falsehood) in life. All of this is in furtherance of our mission to surpass our goals! In this episode we explore, “Stereotype Threat does not exist.”
What is a Stereotype?
"Stereotypes are widely held cultural beliefs that are resistant to change."
(Block, Koch, Liberman, Merriweather, & Roberson, 2011)
What is Stereotype Threat?
“The phenomenon known as “stereotype threat.” Members of groups believed to be academically inferior — African-American and Latino students enrolled in college, or female students in math and science courses — score much lower on tests when reminded beforehand of their race or gender. […] found that black students performed comparably with white students when told that the test they were taking was “a laboratory problem-solving task.” Black students scored much lower, however, when they were instructed that the test was meant to measure their intellectual ability. In effect, the prospect of social evaluation suppressed these students’ intelligence.”
Minorities aren’t the only ones vulnerable to stereotype threat. We all are. A group of people notably confident about their mathematical abilities — white male math and engineering majors who received high scores on the math portion of the SAT — did worse on a math test when told that the experiment was intended to investigate “why Asians appear to outperform other students on tests of math ability.” (PAUL, 2012)
Does it exist?

The Omega Leadership Series is a weekly show that is designed to bring the styles and principles of the Omega Leader to those who lead. Laurie Beth has captured, coined and written about the "Omega Leader" for over a decade. How Jesus recruited, managed and led his team of twelve is our model of Omega Leadership. Taking both the Alpha and Beta styles of management, Jesus added the 'Omega' principles to the mix. He knew that leading others looked and felt different than his present day examples. Laurie Beth continues to capture Jesus' style, teachings, and examples of leadership in her messages, writings and programs. Here in the Omega Leadership series each week we unpack some of those principles so that listeners, leaders, and followers can benefit from the 'Omega Leadership Model.' This week Laurie Beth Jones will be talking about the Omega Leader as Coach using the Balance Principle: 'Know the difference between Archetype and Stereotype as you lead.'
The host at SevsDeadSerious is amazed by the level of racism we must endure in this country especially from those that are retained to "protect and serve". My question is who are they protecting and serving; it certainly isn't minorities, the poor or anyone who doesn't look, act, or sound like them, besides it's way too easy to take your gun, shoot the offending minortity, poor or whatever and then claiming it was in self-defense bewcause you THOUGHT he had a gun, or might have a gun, or owns a gun or can spell the word gun...now that justifies execution by police outfitted in gear meant for the battlefield when dealing with those you hated long before they issued a badge. It must be part of the law-ewnforcement courses we teach those who are meant to "protect and serve"...maybe we should protact ourselves from those whose duty it is to protect and serve. Racist cops on board for the Douche Bag of the Week.
Press  for Democracy (P1FD) is a Coffee Party Radio show that discusses the political issues of the day in a civil, fact-based, and transpartisan manner. Transpartisan is quite different from bi- or non-partisan in the we encourage callers to be passionate about their positions, but also that they listen and respond to those with differing points of view repsectfully and with a true desire to find common ground on which solutions can be built.
Tonight on P1FD . . .Faith, Culture and Politics
Stereotype: a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing. Can we “know” someone's political position by their faith? We think not.
Today on Press 1 for Democracy we are going to talk about how our values influence both our listening and our speaking to one another.
Coffee Party Newsroom volunteers Marianne Castiglia and Charlotte Coyle will discuss the relationship between faith, culture and politics. Please join us.

The biggest stereotype attached to manhood is the art of beating someone else down or having a short fuse. How much more man or the fellas that do this than those that don't? Call-in and discuss it with Nick and E! Today, we spend the last five minutes of the show preparing for tomorrow's amazing Special Guest.
What can lying to your child about their father lead to? As far as I’m concerned, it doesn’t matter what the man may have done – provided that it is not something that puts his child in direct danger – if his sp*erm went into assisting with producing the child’s life, he should have the right to access the child at his leisure. Like it or not, that child is as much his as it is the woman’s and in spite of one’s seething anger toward him, which we hope will one day subside because we all know that “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,” it’s just never okay for a woman to use a child against a man or vice versa, though the latter is rare. What is perplexing, however, is the tendency for women to use their children as ammunition, as part of an intricate ploy to somehow strike back at their ex-partner. This retaliation is often due to any wrongdoing [ongoing or not] that may have been committed by the man in question – be that adultery, stealing, lying, etc. Ridiculous, I know – yet all too real.
The issue rather, is that many women are at an unfair advantage because well…they are women. It is simply unfair to a man who has everything working against him, especially when we have the stereotype (and reality) that men are less present in the raising of their children, something that is being talked about very much in the media, as well as through anecdotal points of reference. However, fathers who genuinely seek to be present in their children’s lives shouldn’t be overlooked because of a few bad apples. While it is true that often when separation or divorce ensues, a man is more likely than a women to shirk the responsibility, we still cannot allow for those scenarios to take precedence over the few, if only – who are genuinely interested in the well-being of their children but are repeatedly shut out.
SHOW NOTES: In our JOYFUL ART OF BUSINESS™ series we explore how to combine the positive benefits of our professional endeavors (“business”) with the overall positive emotional return on our efforts (“joy”). The act of engaging in professional endeavors, in any capacity (i.e., as an employee, employer, entrepreneur, contractor, volunteer, paid, full time, part time, intermittently, etc.) is an expression of our ideas and creative talents (“art”).
In this episode our topic is, “The Real Reason You Can’t Have It All Is…”
So, let’s get right to ‘the answer’!
A) You don’t want ‘it all.’
B) ‘It All’ doesn’t exist.
There are many public discussions that are gender focused regarding the general concept of working outside of a family and unit and contemporaneously working inside of a family unit. The stereotype is that a female is not able to work outside a family unit while working inside of one (and that their work and family will both suffer due to the lack of time and attention). For males the stereotype is that they are not able to work outside the family unit while working inside of one (and that their family unit will suffer due to the lack of time and attention while they prioritize their outside work). There is guilt, shame and regret for males and females in their pursuit of an unattainable fiction ('it all').
In the Harry Chapin song, “Cat’s in the Cradle” a father laments that his child [...]

Join me for an in depth cultural conversation with Dr. Nicholas Hartlep, author of The Model Minority Stereotype: Demystifying Asian American Success. The Asian-American student population supposedly scores off-the-charts on high-stakes college admission tests, such as the SAT. Public perception of Asian-American success is evidenced in the phrase “the Asian invasion” — the notion that Asian-Americans are overrepresented on college campuses. Dr. Hartlep sheds light on percieved myths and stereotypes through his groundbreaking research. Dr. Hartlep is an assistant professor of educational foundations and author of the forthcoming books, The Model Minority Stereotype: Demystifying Success (2013, Information Age Publishing) and The Model Minority Stereotype Reader: Critical and Challenging Readings For the 21st Century (Cognella Publishing, 2013).
