    WKPJB Radio: It's a matter of respect

    in Poetry

    It's a matter of respect. Hasn't it always been that way? Then why do we continue to negate the fact that most conflicts are based on the inability of one side to respect the perspective of the other? How often have you looked back at a situation and said, "oh wait, I could have handled that differently"

    This conversation is sparked in the wake of the officer who threw a young black girl to the ground in a South Carolina school. Now there is a call to action. An outcry against injustice but... are we looking at this correctly? What is the root cause of the problem? Let's discuss it tonight on WKPJB Radio


  • WKPJB Radio presents Straight Outta Where?

    in Poetry

    So I went to see Straight outta Compton this weekend. Watching the film inspired me, tremendously, ... but then came the comments. Even though it was the number one movie of this past weekend, even though it was F. Gary Gray's career best film, there were still the haters. So in this show we will discuss the influence of music, Hip Hop, Film, Artists, Mysoginism, Police Brutality and the necessity for groups like NWA. We want you to rep your set and tell us what it was like for you growing up. We will also continue our tradition of open mic so if you have a piece you wish to share, we encourage you to bring it with and share with us, even if off topic because here at WKPJB Radio, we encourage you to venture into the uncomfortable.

    WKPJB Radio presents a discussion on Cultural Appropriation

    in Poetry

    Cultural appropriation is a sociological concept which views the adoption or use of elements of one culture by members of a different culture as a largely negative phenomenon. What is it about and how can we avoid it. I think it is time we discuss this at length. If you’re Katy Perry, for example, you believe it’s A-OK to don corn rows and gel down your baby hair, put on some long fingernails and so-called sassy mannerisms with a “blaccent” and slang to portray how you believe certain black women behave and speak. But when you do it, as a white artist, you perpetuate a long legacy of white cultural theft—in addition to bypassing all the racist and misogynist insults those black women must contend with on a daily basis. That includes being called “ghetto” by white (and other) people, typecast as a welfare queen or otherwise told that your natural hairstyles and expressions are inferior and unwelcome. These are symptomatic of slavery and segregation in America and, yes, this really still happens every day. And it’s cultural appropriation.

    As writer Tamara Winfrey Harris expertly notes over at Racialicious, it’s the oppression that causes the intense offense that many people—mainly white people—seek to explain away rather than critically question.

    WKPJB Radio presents Body Image with Chamber7 & BluPhunk

    in Poetry

    "Does any of this sound familiar? "I'm too tall." "I'm too short." "I'm too skinny." "If only I were shorter/taller/had curly hair/straight hair/a smaller nose/longer legs, I'd be happy."

    Are you putting yourself down? If so, you're not alone. As a teen, you're going through lots of changes in your body. And, as your body changes, so does your image of yourself. It's not always easy to like every part of your looks, but when you get stuck on the negatives it can really bring down your self-esteem.
    Why Are Self-Esteem and Body Image Important?

    Self-esteem is all about how much you feel you are worth — and how much you feel other people value you. Self-esteem is important because feeling good about yourself can affect your mental health and how you behave.

    People with high self-esteem know themselves well. They're realistic and find friends that like and appreciate them for who they are. People with high self-esteem usually feel more in control of their lives and know their own strengths and weaknesses." - from http://kidshealth.org/teen/your_mind/body_image/body_image.html

    We will discuss body image on this show from all aspects. Men, women, young, old. How do you feel about you? Chamber 7 and BluPhunk

    WKPJB Radio presents Ever Been in an Uber?

    in Poetry

    Uber Technologies Inc. is an American international transportation network company headquartered in San Francisco, California. The company develops, markets and operates the Uber mobile app, which allows consumers with smartphones to submit a trip request which is then routed to Uber drivers who use their own cars. By May 28, 2015, the service was available in 58 countries and 300 cities worldwide. Since Uber's launch, several other companies have copied its business model, a trend that has come to be referred to as "Uberification".

    Uber was founded as "UberCab" by Travis Kalanick and Garrett Camp in 2009 and the app was released the following June. Beginning in 2012, Uber expanded internationally. In 2014, it experimented with carpooling features and made other updates. By mid-2015, Uber was estimated to be worth $50B.

    Join us as we discuss this phenomenon and tell the stories that come with being in an Uber!

    WKPJB Radio presents Settin The Records Straight featuring Endless Will

    in Poetry

    Aight so this is not your typical Blogtalkradio show, or so I have been told. Normally we have our open mic discussions on Wed. Well now we will start a new monthly show called, "Settin' the records straight" This show is dedicated to giving a voice to people who have something to say and don't wish to curb it on the stance of tact or formality. This edition of Settin the records straight, welcomes, Spoken Word Artist Endlesswill Davis. He recently shared his candid opinion of the Olympian formerly known as Bruce Jenner, now Ms. Caitlyn Jenner. His opinion sparked a remarkable amount of controversy. WKPJB Radio recently had a show titled TransJenner, where we featured the season 2 winner of Rupaul's Drag Race, Tyra Sanchez. This should prove to be a very enlightening show as well. We will take all on comers who wish to discuss the matter maturely. Please join Chamber7 and BluPhunk.
