Let's Get Real: Is Colorblind Ideology a form of Racism?
24 plays

morningamp:

The AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams (along with a few callers) kicked off the show with some real table talk! Stephen Colbert satirizes white liberalism by saying he “can’t be racist because I don’t see color.” But psychologists say colorblindness has similar effects to racist beliefs: it keeps the “colorblind” person from recognizing and more importantly, valuing, individual difference.

CNN Chicagoland: How one High School Principal is Sharing her School's Reality
72 plays

morningamp:

I think my main reason for wanting to do it [CNN Chicagoland documentary] was to create awareness, but not just for Fenger- I think Fenger is just a small microcosm of what happens on a larger scale of not only in Chicago but across this country. And so there are phenomenal educators and principles across the country who are doing work under extraordinary circumstances that don’t really get highlighted, where people don’t understand the complexity of the work, so that was really important for me and why I really wanted to do it. And then the second reason was to help raise funds. You know, it’s public education…and how things are funded; it’s complicated. “

- Fenger High School Principal Liz Dozier on why she decided to feature her school on CNN’s documentary “Chicagoland”

Liz Dozier, principal of Fenger High School, joined the AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams to talk about her starring turn on CNN’s Chicagoland and what her day to day is like when she’s not on national TV.

Ladies: Are you a Boss? Bossy? Or Both?

morningamp:

"I’m not bossy, I’m a boss," says Beyoncé in a new campaign from LeanIn.org encouraging parents and educators to drop the word “bossy” when describing headstrong girls. But the AMp’s Council of Feminist Thought has convened to wonder if “bossy” is all that bad and what kind of effect banning a word can have.

Even though this campaign may have been well-intended, it does not cover the REAL issues facing young women, particularly young women of color as discussed by the Council: According to the African American Policy Forum, black girls are suspended at a higher rate than all other girls and white and Latino boys. Sixty-seven percent of black girls reported feelings of sadness or hopelessness for more than two weeks straight compared to 31 percent of white girls and 40 percent of Latinas. Single black women have the lowest net wealth of any group, with research showing a median wealth of $100.

Why is Fair Housing in Chicago Still an Issue in 2014?

morningamp:

It does feel like, sometimes, it’s a very daunting task to try and deal with the issue of equity and housing and opportunity all in one big full swoop. The big issue is that housing is really the last thing that we’ve been able as a society to figure out how to integrate. We’ve seen schools that are more integrated, and at the college level, people work in more integrated environments, when we go out to eat we’re in more integrated environments than we used to be. But housing is really this last frontier. The other part about it is that housing is really the linchpin in trying to create equity throughout the region. The fact that we live in these segregated neighborhoods and communities - that’s the geography of equality and inequality.” 
-Rob Breymaier, President of the Chicago Fair Housing Alliance

A new report from theChicago Fair Housing Alliance looks at how segregation affects our daily lives in the city from education to crime to quality of life. Executive Director Morgan Davis and PresidentRob Breymaier joined the AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams this morning and discussed some of their proposed solutions for these problems.
