Welcome Back to Blue Moon Vibes! The podcast that makes you laugh a lil' bit cry a lil' bit, and think a lil' bit! My goal is to be the one that gives you more than you asked! I hope you can find value in these topics, and they become something that you talk amongst your friends and family about! Don't shy away from challenging issues because that is where growth happens! The change you want to see is the change you must create! We are worthy, we are tenacious, we are strong, and we are purposeful! The only way to erase the divide is to unite as a nation and treat each other as people, with respect and courtesy!

The Color of OUR Skin
It's Series 13 Episode 2

Happy12th day of Black History Month, beautiful humans! How has your week been? Let us know in the comments! Y'all got them w-2's, lol. As we continue discussing the evolution of the term ethnic and how it became almost synonymous with African Americans, we discovered that we could have been the reason behind it! We create our lingo when we are amongst our friends and other like-minded constituents. As LadyDee pointed out, this could have been overheard by others and "stuck," Almost like a game of telephone. And then we have paid! Lol, concluding our discussion on the complexities of the word ethnic, we move on to wonder why we are still judged by the color of our skin? We all understand that racism is a thing and that colorism is as well, but why does my skin color dictate my worth or lack-there-of? LadyDee raises a strong point that the media plays a vital part in perpetuating the colorism standard and the disenfranchisement of darker skin-toned humans. Do you all believe we will EVER get to a place where we are not judged by the color of our skin? Let us know in the comments.
