While it’s true that there’s no shortage of celebrities on BlogTalkRadio, not all of them are here solely to pitch their latest flick, show, CD, book or other entertainment project.
Equally as often, big names take the time to address issues of a social nature. And so, for your listening pleasure and edification alike, we’ve woven together a socially-conscious edition of The Daily Mix.
On tonight’s show you will learn:
—What comic Bill Cosby is referring to when he says, “You do not participate as a parent when you think the school system is going to do it for you.”
—When former E! News anchor Steve Kmetko—who now works for a website that connects the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community to local events—says, “She’s just there to do a good job. She’s not there because of her sexual orientation,” who he’s talking about.
—Who Beauty Shop star LisaRaye is chastising when she tells us, “They think our stories are ‘ghetto’ or ‘in the hood’ or only depicted to be in the black population. And that’s not true.”
—Why acclaimed poet Nikki Giovanni tells us, “The election of Barack Obama does not say there is no more racism, but it does say that black people have made changes, and the changes have been for the better.”
—How Good Hair star Chris Rock helped Nia Long come to the conclusion that “Women have a choice about how they want to look.”
So don’t miss The Mix, hosted by everyone’s favorite pod jockey, Shaun Daily, tonight—and every Monday—at 9 p.m. ET!
