The Buzz... One of the most common beliefs are that Americans do not want to learn about other cultures because we are too wrapped up in our own society. A cousin down South oft times is unable to communicate with a cousin up North because we use different social words based on region.. I can't fix that but I can start with bridging the gap in our own community. I'm not speaking of slang and I'm not talking about old folks and young folks, I'm talking about peers who may be of a different culture who live next door or attend the same school/class we do. The Sting...I'm going to throw out a few words and ask what it means to you.. An example is that a person farting under the cover only means that someone farted under the cover to a black person but to a white person, it is referred to as a Dutch oven. See where I'm going with this? A major reason for this show is to gain a better understanding of each others language use, break the ice because this is a show with a multicultural audience, and because it will be a guaranteed good time. And just as important, for years psychological achievement tests have stated that minority children score poorly in the verbal reasoning tests than their white counter parts. I'm not seeking to prove them wrong (I can't because we're all adults) but to show that there can be other factors that affect a child's performance. The Healing Process.. We will sing Kumbaya and look forward to speaking to each other on future shows with a mutual understanding that we are different and it's okay!. The Blog Area is my virtual scratch pad where I'll toss out ideas from myself to myself so be cautioned not to interrupt..As the blogs appear here they will roll into shows in the order of relevance or however my mind is working that day. I'm excited.. I hope you are too.
