Musings about commercial radio

Musings about commercial radio

Yesterday Charlamagne Tha God Co-Host of the Breakfast Club went on to say “Today is not a win. If Biden wins, this is not a win. If Trump wins, this is not a win. […] Today is not a win. If Biden wins, this is not a win. If Trump wins, this is not a win. […] Black people have to continue to work towards justice.” This is a semi-direct quote but trust me he said it and I was dialed in to here it.

Now, don’t get me wrong he isn’t twisted the Host of Donkey of the Day is touching on something important but I think he’s off. For me I’m a man first. Being Black comes after and some may argue I’m a child of God first and foremost but they all reveal one thing – intersectionality. My destiny in justice is tied to justice for others. If Biden wins, it’s a win for me as a human but also a Black man – and yes I’m aware of many of the Biden/Harris bullshit, lies and blunders. But, gave the current state of affairs, I simply trust the devil I know. I guess in the way others can reject racist rhetoric, legislation and corruption all for the sake of power.

I believe a Biden presidency won’t be perfect but we will get answers to these questions: Will there be an end to the muslim ban, some support for DACA recipients and a better response to COVID-19? As a Black man I wonder how many Black folks are impacted by the muslim ban. What are the stories of Black DACA recipients?

These are just the tip of the icebergs in regards to the advantages of a Biden presidency. While I ride for the Black Community we can’t figure that we can do this alone. I look forward to a future where the democrats get their shit together or Black folks and Others fight for change and investment such as really putting money and work behind a third party candidate. These are my thoughts. Leave a comment below whether good, bad or ugly.

Gumbo Session Part 2 – Cultural nuisance, French lessons and thoughts on travel

Gumbo Session Part 2 – Cultural nuisance, French lessons and thoughts on travel

@bootleglikejazz

Cultural nuisance is my description of the conversation between race vs. ethnicity. Why do we use race? Why not ethnicity? Which one reflects our collective cultural identity?

Listen to Gumbo Session Part 2 and dive in with Terrell Wayne as he discusses his thoughts on the topic. Race is as American as baseball, hot dogs and white privilege. Race is an American construct created to oppress and convince the world that black is sub-human. Ethnicity promotes labeling people based on culture, customs and habits.

Traveler vs. Tourist mentality is a school of thought adopted by many people who live, study and travel abroad. Valuing cultural capital over pomp and hype, a Travelers mentality aims to invest in true exchanges amongst foreign cultures. Travelers benefit from authentic cuisine from the stoves of locals, experiences in spaces that are relevant to the natives and a different perspective.
