It’s a Socially-Conscious Edition of ‘The Mix’

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:

—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.”

    personally, I understand what (comedian) Bill Cosby is saying, and I am a teenager, age of 17, and I understand what this wise man is saying, what he means is… Life handed you a child for a reason, and you can’t just expect everyone else to be parenting your kid(s) for you… when it was your responsibility to do in the first place when your kid(s) were born in the first place. and as for the person connecting the gay, lesbian, transgendedered, bi, community, it’s just what this world needs, is for someone to truely understand just what they are, instead of being phobics of they’re sexualities, because your gonna meet lots of people like this, and you won;t even realize, nor know it either. if you tried being in they’re place for one day you would truely understand just what it’s like to be them. as i do, cuz i am like them, I am Bi.
    sincerely, Ethan Love
