SHOW #36 - COLLEGE STUDENTS: WHAT TO EXPECT FROM ACADEMIA IN 2020-2021

July 7, 2020

This is Show #36 - Race and Ethnic Relations on Campus - COLLEGE STUDENTS: WHAT TO EXPECT FROM ACADEMIA IN 2020-2021 in which I discuss how colleges and universities will respond to the tragic events that happened this spring & summer. Now that a majority of colleges and universities have made their institutions' STATEMENT against racism, discrimination and injustice, there will more than likely be new PROGRAMS, INITIATIVES, COLLEGE COURSES, WEBINARS, DISCUSSION GROUPS, COMMITTEES, and OFFICES developed to address these issues for college students this upcoming academic year of 2020-2021. This is a GOOD THING! Yet, I also encourage all colleges and universities to follow through and continue their new initiatives and INSTITUTIONALIZE them into their system so that future college students will also benefit. After listening to this podcast, I would TRULY like to hear from College Students across the U.S. and share with me the new initiatives that are being planned at your particular college and/or university.

SHOW #35 - BLACK RAGE - WAKE UP AMERICA - PART II

SHOW #35 - BLACK RAGE - WAKE UP AMERICA - PART II

June 16, 2020

This is Show #35 - Race and Ethnic Relations on Campus - BLACK RAGE - WAKE UP AMERICA - PART II - in which I discuss the events that has happened AFTER the tragic death of George Floyd and how MAINSTREAM AMERICA responded! First, it is good that many institutions, organizations, associations, societies, departments and committees responded in a WRITTEN STATEMENT against racism, hate and discrimination against underrepresented groups in America. However, these statements tended to be POLITICALLY CORRECT STATEMENTS which included all groups which have received discriminatory behavior and actions. From my perspective, we may have lost sight of the real issue ALREADY!!  From the folks who I have spoken with during the past couple of weeks, we are looking for CHANGE OF BEHAVIOR, BELIEFS, UNDERSTANDING AND "HEART" from Mainstream America!! Are YOU "Mainstream America" willing and READY to change your HEART in understanding what an African American male - "Black Male" has had to endure in our THE UNITED STATES! That is the BASIC ISSUE!! So check out my VERY PERSONAL PODCAST if you want to hear from this very PROUD African American male in 2020!! Send your comments to: ejb678@gmail.com or baileye@ecu.edu. LET'S DEVELOP SOME NEW POLICIES AND SOLUTIONS FOLKS!!

SHOW #34: BLACK RAGE - WAKE UP AMERICA!

SHOW #34: BLACK RAGE - WAKE UP AMERICA!

May 30, 2020

This is Show #34 - Race and Ethnic Relations on Campus - BLACK RAGE - WAKE UP AMERICA! - in which I discuss the TRAGIC death of George Floyd who died while being arrested by police officers in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota just a few days ago. This event was also caught on video from several sources primarily through cell phones from passerby citizens and concerned citizens that witness this event. This is by far the MOST DISTURBING event that I witness on video in which this African American man was brutally treated and loss his life. The events after his death has UNFORTUNATELY enraged the African American community not only in Minneapolis but in major cities across the U.S.. My purpose of conducting this PODCAST SHOW is to LOOK FOR JUSTICE, SHORT-TERM AND LONG-TERM PEACEFUL SOLUTIONS and a BETTER UNDERSTANDING of the MULTITUDE of issues affecting the African American community and all other communities who are different than mainstream America! It's TIME FOR AMERICA TO WAKE UP!! Please send me your SUGGESTIONS for SOLUTIONS at ejb@678@gmail.com

SHOW #33:  RACE - SHOULD WE GET RID OF IT?

SHOW #33: RACE - SHOULD WE GET RID OF IT?

May 26, 2020

This is Show #33 - Race and Ethnic Relations on Campus - RACE - SHOULD WE GET RID OF IT? - in which I discuss the possibility that our society should consider getting rid of our U.S. racial categories COMPLETELY! Since many of my college and university students are no longer making RACE a major issue with their friends and classmates at college, then why should scholars, researchers, administrators and the GENERAL PUBLIC still use RACE as a marker for which group an individual belongs to! So I pose the question to my PODCAST AUDIENCE -- SHOULD WE GET RID OF OUR RACIAL CATEGORIES and CAN YOU IMAGINE OUR WORLD WITHOUT THE CONCEPT of "RACE?" Please send me your thoughts, opinions and suggestions at ejb678@gmail.com. It is 2020 and it's time to take a NEW DIRECTION in our WORLD and maybe this is the START!! THINK ABOUT IT!!

SHOW #31 - Challenging Our Politically Correct Society

SHOW #31 - Challenging Our Politically Correct Society

May 14, 2020

This is Show #31 - Race and Ethnic Relations on Campus - Challenging Our Politically Correct Society - in which I discuss the problems in which our politically correct society today places upon our college students today! A majority of my college students feel constrained during class discussions because they are uncertain as to what they can say in class. In order to move my students FORWARD, I encourage them to share their individual perspective in a respectful yet HONEST way so that we can challenge our current political correctness particularly as it relates to race and ethnic relations. After review of this podcast show, please share me your professional opinion by emailing me at: ejb678@gmail.com . This is NOT A POLITICALLY CORRECT SHOW but an HONEST SHOW about improving race and ethnic relations on college campuses.

SHOW #30 - WHY I WROTE THIS BOOK

SHOW #30 - WHY I WROTE THIS BOOK

April 9, 2020

This is Show #30 - Race and Ethnic Relations on Campus - Why I Wrote this Book - in which I discuss the major reasons that inspired me to write this book on race and ethnic relations among today's college students. Unfortunately, over the recent years in teaching college classes, I noticed that many of my students were not taking any effort in getting to know other students who happened to look different than them. That concerned me immensely. Most importantly, since our colleges and universities are increasingly becoming DIVERSE and our DIVERSE NOW, it is important to find ways to get all of our students to come together. Finally, now since we ALL are going through the Coronavirus/COVID-19 stay at home period, we are realizing that ALL OF US ARE IN THE SAME BOAT and WE MUST GET ALONG! So if you want to hear my comments about these topics, please listen to this VERY SPECIAL MILESTONE PODCAST SHOW and send me an email at: ejb678@gmail.com or baileye@ecu.edu. The time is NOW to COME TOGETHER.

SHOW #29 - CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC AND COLLEGE STUDENTS - PART II

SHOW #29 - CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC AND COLLEGE STUDENTS - PART II

March 29, 2020

This is Show #29 - Race and Ethnic Relations on Campus - Coronavirus Pandemic and College Students - PART II in which I discuss how we (Faculty, Administrators, Staff and College students) are adjusting and adapting to our new reality. That new reality is that our college and university must place ALL content and job activities ONLINE and VIRTUAL FORMAT because our Federal, State and Local governments stated that we must keep SOCIAL DISTANCING pattern and NOT meet in large groups of 10 or more. Therefore, all industries including HIGHER EDUCATION must go into this HOLDING-PATTERN and deliver services to all students DIFFERENTLY.  Fortunately, a majority of my classes were already online. Yet how are a majority of college students across the United States adjusting to their particular college and university situation. For all COLLEGE STUDENTS LISTENING TO THIS PODCAST, Please email at: ejb678@gmail.com or baileye@ecu.edu and let me know how YOUR college and university is making the adjustment! THANKS!

SHOW #28 - CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC AND COLLEGE STUDENTS

SHOW #28 - CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC AND COLLEGE STUDENTS

March 13, 2020

This is Show #28 - Race and Ethnic Relations on Campus - Coronavirus Pandemic and College Students in which I discuss the current state of the Coronovirus and how it is affecting all college students and universities across the United States. Once considered an epidemic isolated in other countries, now our United States has had to make serious adjustments and adaptations to this very serious disease. Not surprisingly, all colleges and universities are instituting their own measures to reduce the spread of the virus and many colleges and universities are making their student population to return home and complete their courses ONLINE! I highlight these issues but also recognize that this pandemic involves practical public health prevention strategies for a majority of folks. Check out this VERY SERIOUS PODCAST SHOW and if you have comments, please send them to: ejb678@gmail.com or baileye@ecu.edu. A big thanks to ALL OF MY SPONSORS TOO!!

SHOW #27 - SELF-CONFIDENCE - The Key to Improving Race Relations

SHOW #27 - SELF-CONFIDENCE - The Key to Improving Race Relations

March 5, 2020

This is Show #27 - Race and Ethnic Relations on Campus - Self-Confidence: The Key to Improving Race Relations in which I discuss the importance of an individual's SELF-CONFIDENCE because it is directly related to positive race relations. In fact, every student practices a wide variety of self-confidence strategies yet few students actually share their individual strategies with other college students. In this show, I encourage college students to not only identify their individual self-confidence strategies but also share them with other students. You will be surprised what each college student uses to excel in college - academically, socially, culturally and meeting new college students who happen to look different than them!! That's how self-confidence can improve race relations. If you agree or disagree, feel free to email me at: ejb678@gmail.com or even baileye@ecu.edu . I want to thank my Podcast platform supporters - Podbean, Apple Podcast, Google Play, Spotify, YouTube, PlayerFM, Listen Notes, and iHeartRadio. Of course, a special acknowledgment to my publisher -- ABC- CLIO too!
