SORT BY Relevancy
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)

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.'

It's time to address yet another phenomenon that plagues the Black community....Lightskin vs Darkskin.
In comparison to darker skin, studies show that lighter skinned people are less likely to be incarcerated, more likely to be in political leadership, have higher education, income, and job statuses. Is this merely a coincidence, or systematic?
Studies also show that these disparities of light vs dark, happens at a higher rate within the race of blacks, than those outside of the race.
In your day to day interaction, do you see a certain prejudice or bias towards/against the dark skin/light skin individuals? Is this something amongst "US" that speaks to OUR core issues of "self-hate" or is it much to do about nothing?
Following a six year dream, SC State University alumnus, James T. DeShay’s, ‘83, latest project has finally come to fruition. DeShay is delighted to announce the launch of his latest poetry book, ‘Thoughts, Love & Reflection’. The book is a beautiful display of poetry in which the true emotional depth of men is showcased. Proving that men are able to convey their deepest feelings without fear of being seen as weak, DeShay’s natural talent for moving his readers is evident within every page. “It is my desire to share my thoughts in a way that will benefit all races and genders. I want to dispel a lot the misnomers related to men,” explains the Orlando, Fla. native. He continues, “Stereotypes are a simple way of placing people inside a box; but sometimes the information belief is inaccurate and destructive. When stereotypes are used exclusively, they service only to deny people the wonderful opportunity to discover uniqueness of humanity.” DeShay sincerely hopes that his book will serve to destroy the ageold stereotype that men cannot share or communicate their deepest thoughts. Each page will also serve as an enriching journey into male thoughts relating to life, joy, love, happiness and reflection. “Readers will be able to free and embrace their own emotions, while taking a journey into the emotions of those around them.

Papi chulo. Hey, papi, ven p’acá. That guy is such a papi. Ay, papi.
There’s so many uses for that word, but what does it mean? Is it a distinctive form of Latino manhood? Is it a stereotype emanated from our pop stars? Is it a good or a bad thing? What’s the difference between being a papi and a Latin lover? Or is it just a Latino twist on being a metrosexual? More importantly, if it is a cheesy attitude or style, can Latinos make fun of other Latinos?
Listen to José Manuel Simián and Marcelo Báez go down the hole of papihood hoping they make it out alive.
Emergency, Emergency, Emergency, Brothers stop killing Police now because # 1 its flat out wrong, and # 2, the media is reporting but also exploiting the racial stereotype of us African Americans Men as violent predators !

Reporting is one thing its business and informal, but to replay images to millions of people every second ? You got to also admitt that you are part of the problem also ? Come on now folks I have a Media company to so I can not call the kettle" Black ", I am a Capitialist and I Love it, but I am also resposible, for our beloved American brother and sister's !
You keep asking Questions like why are you single. Your single becasue you want to be.... No Really!
Clearly, some people are single because they choose to be. They are simply not interested in being in a serious relationship at this time in their life. Others are single due to the circumstances of their lives. They may have just gotten out of a meaningful relationship or have dated relentlessly and just haven’t found someone with whom they’re truly compatible. The point of this article isn’t to stereotype all single women or men or to put anyone in a box. However, for people, particularly those over 30, who are looking for answers to the puzzling question “why am I still single?”, here are some unconventional answers that lie within.
When it comes to dating and relationships, it’s hard not to feel that you are a victim. After all, others can be cruel; you will get hurt, and no, it isn’t always your fault. But the reality is that we hold more power over our romantic destiny than we often think. To a great degree, we create the world we live in, although we are rarely conscious of this process. We can, in fact, make a choice whether to see our fate through a victimized lens or choose to be goal-directed and take power over our lives. We benefit from focusing on what we can control and not what we can’t. We can become aware of the myriad of ways we influence the reactions we get from others, even the negative reactions. So, the question for the single person looking for love is: what are the internal challenges I need to face?
Tonight’s guest is someone most of us are familiar with but for one reason only...He became known for blowing the whistle on the Rendlesham Forest Incidents. A series of mind blowing events which occurred in 1980 over the Christmas weekend while he was stationed at RAF Bentwaters in Suffolk, England. Tonight Larry will break his own stereotype and give us a rare glimpse into his personal life, his childhood experiences and his eventful life post Rendlesham. We will surf a whole alphabet of topics from Aliens and bigfoot to Zeppelin. If you think you’ve heard it all before you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that you ain’t heard nothing yet!
