Every Friday, we take phone calls from listeners to let them rant and critique on the happenings of their work week. But during this particular Critic for a Minute Friday, we had caller Maxine from Lakeview tell us about a community project her children created. For her daughter’s Bat Mitzvah celebration, rather than a huge blow -out party, her daughter wanted to team up with a Bronzeville church to build a playground for local children. They are now in the process of fundraising and are looking for the community to help. If you would like to read more about this project and would like to contribute, you can visit their website.

How the Legalization of Marijuana on a National Level will Change Things...Or Will It?
48 plays

morningamp:

Brian Babylon returned from a Colorado weekend and had some thoughts with co-host Molly Adams on how legalized marijuana changes culture. Michelle Alexander, the scholar who wrote the book ’ The New Jim Crow’, has found that when it comes to the prison system and the war on drugs, people of color are disproportionately prosecuted, sentenced and imprisoned. As marijuana gets legalized, and Colorado’s law becomes the law of the land what are the reparations for this change in the law? Are we going to look at the prison population of people who are in jail for marijuana offenses? Michelle Alexander has stated that white, wealthy people will make money off of legal marijuana while colored people will remained punished somehow. Brian has shared his experiences in Colorado and connected it with her points. Take a listen.

Mariam Sobh discusses how social media has changed how we think about modesty

morningamp:

The Morning AMp’s Lead Modesty Analyst Mariam Sobh joined Brian Babylon and Molly Adams to report on how selfies and sharing of social media have changed norms about how we think and talk about modesty.

Mariam also discussed her opinions on people “over sharing” on social media. She went on to say:

"People share too much about their relationships - I feel like it can have a negative effect. Its always like ‘oh my gosh, my significant other is so amazing, oh thank you for bringing this to me today. I can’t believe you brought me flowers.’ Its just so in-depth. And then the next week, ‘oh we’re getting separated.’ Maybe you did a little too much or maybe you’re over compensating for something else in your life and you want everyone else to think its amazing."
