AV on Health: Weight Loss Drugs

GLP-1 - Glucagon-like peptide-1 - is a class of medications used to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus and, in some cases, obesity. That's the formal definition of the drugs many are using now solely to lose weight. It's the latest in the weight loss war. Nearly 48% of African American adults in the US are clinically obese, and Black women are especially affected as 4 out of every 5 Black women are obese. Is GLP-1 the magic weight loss medicine as some claim? Is obesity a disease, or a lack of will power? And what is the impact for diabetic patients who cannot get the drug because of increased demand from those who want to lose weight?

Farewell to Chief Larry Boone

What do the cities of Nashville, Sacramento, Boston, Memphis, and Norfolk have in common? They have all hired African American police chiefs. And all of these "top cops" had a negative run-in with law enforcement in their youth. Now they, among many others, have decided to change the culture of policing from the inside, amid backlash from officers and the Black community. On one of his final interviews before leaving Hampton Roads, former Norfolk police chief Larry Boone talks about the challenges of "policing while Black"; changing the attitudes and biases of overzealous officers, while at the same time convincing Black and Brown communties that change is possible but takes time. As one police chief put it, "I'd be called a coon, a sellout, Uncle Tom by the Black community. I'd be discriminated against in many different ways by non-Black communities". So why do they do it? Chief Larry Boone shares candid insight with Another View.

How Not to be Racist: One Woman's Journey

In the book, "These Walls Between Us", we find these words: "...in the mid-1950's a young African American teenager named Mary White traveled north from Virginia to work for my family as a live-in domestic worker during our summer vacation. Mary was fifteen, I was twelve. As the Black "help" and the privileged white daughter, we were not slated for friendship." Thus begins the journey of understanding and rejection of racism by author Wendy Sanford, who grew up white, upper-class and wealthy. We talk with Ms. Sanford about her journey and why her book is an invitation for "white readers to join me in exploring our relationship to white supremacy culture".

The Emancipation of Evan Walls

The 60's were a turbulent time, not only in the big cities of our nation, but also in our rural communities. Racism was rampant and Blacks learned to "stay in their place". For African Americans cruelty and hatred was expected from whites - but what about when the same behaviors came from your own community? We talk candidly with author Jeffrey Blount. His book is called "The Emancipation of Evan Walls" and it is the fictional story of a young boy caught in the crossfire of hate from whites and his own people, who questioned whether he was "Black enough" because he wanted better for his life. We will explore a consequence of segregation rarely discussed outside the Black community - how segregation caused African Americans to turn against each other!

Come Meet Drayden!

Autism spectrum disorder, or ASD, is a developmental disability that can cause significant social, communication and behavioral challenges. While it can affect children of all races, African American and Latin X children, as compared to their white counterparts, are more likely to be diagnosed as engaging in "bad behavior" than having ASD. The ASD diagnosis usually comes at a later age, and prevents Black and Brown children from early intervention and receiving the help they need. This is one family's experience living with a child with ASD. Meet author and autism advocate Dana Young-Askew. Her book, "Come Meet Drayden" shares what it's like to live with her son Drayden, told through the perspective of his siblings.

On Being A Black Man In America

The murder of George Floyd, an African American man, in broad daylight at the hands of a white police officer while other officers stood by, is the proverbial "straw that broke the camel's back" - the result - peaceful protests, violent protests, anguish, pain, disgust, and a forced reckoning with race and racism in America. What is it about African Americans, and Black men in particular, that causes comments like, "when the looting starts, the shooting starts"? What does it say about a society where a person who is supposed to protect instead takes a life over $20? What makes a white woman think it is OK to call the police in hysteria because a Black man asked her to leash her dog?

The Soul of Philanthropy

Despite the perception to the contrary, African Americans are philanthropic - in fact, Blacks give more than 8% of their discretionary income to charity, more than any other racial group in America. Blacks donate 25% more of discretionary income than their white counterparts and nearly two-thirds of African American households give formally to charities to the tune of more than $11 billion per year.

The National Urban League just released its 2017 State of Black America Report and the clarion call is to "protect our progress". The report sounds the alarm about the Trump administration's shift of funding away from the Departments of Health, Education, Housing and Labor to military funding; the call from Attorney General Jeff Sessions to review consent decrees where policing patterns revealed ingrained racial bias, systemic civil rights violations and the regular use of excessive force; and the social cancer of hate that continues to permeate our public discourse. On the next Another View we'll talk about this new report, as well as efforts to defund historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Journalist, author and talk show host Wil LaVeist; community activist Bill Thomas, NSU professor Carol Pretlow and guest pundit Dr. Eric Claville of Hampton University.

AV on Health: African American Adolescent Suicide

Generally speaking, the African American community considers suicide a "white persons' issue" - that it doesn't happen that often in the black community. The fact is suicide knows no race - and for adolescents, it's the third leading cause of death after accidents and homicides. And now, a recent study has found that suicide rates for black children - ages 5-12 - is twice that of white children. Why are such young children taking their own lives? And more importantly, what are the warning signs? What do parents and caretakers need to do to prevent suicide from happening? We discuss this critical issue with Narketta Sparkman-Key, Ph.D, Associate Professor and Assistant Chair of Counseling and Human Services, Old Dominion University. Dr. Key specializes in adolescent suicide and brings practical advice to all who interact with children.

Single Mothers

According to the Annie E. Casey Foundation, 67% of African American households are headed by a single parent - in Virginia, 58% of black households are single parent households. The reasons are many - women who choose to be a single mom, divorce, death, incarceration of the dad, poverty...you get the picture. And while the usual stereotype of a single parent is a young women on welfare, uneducated and with no direction, the truth is that many single parents become so out of life circumstance. Women who suddenly find themselves in a single parent situation often do not know where to turn for help. On the next Another View, we'll talk with Monica and Tony Brothers, creators of the Still Hope Foundation, an organization that works with single mothers to help them get back on track, and we'll meet a single mother who successfully completed the program.

Surviving "The Stop" (Encore Edition)

It's a "must have" conversation - especially in Black and Brown communities - how to handle yourself when stopped by the police. The "Stop" can literally be a life and death situation and "the talk" is one parents have with their children to hopefully minimize risk and danger.

Race: Let's Talk About It - When Silence Speaks Volumes

In the wake of the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer, many have engaged in conversations about race and racism, especially those who truly believed America was a "post-racial" society.

We begin our Race: Let's Talk About It conversation: When Silence Speaks Volumes. How does silence actually perpetuate racism and racist actions?

AV Round Table: Colorism

In America, it happened with slavery - the lighter the skin of a black person, the "better" the job on the plantation. Blacks with dark skin worked the fields. Blacks with lighter skin worked in the house. House slaves vs. field slaves. The stigma continues within the African American community today, although many are loathe to talk about it. The name of it is "colorism" - prejudice or discrimination against individuals with a dark skin tone, typically among people of the same ethnic or racial group. Colorism is in the news today with the birth of Prince Harry and Megan Markle's mixed race son. This is a global issue and we about it with pundits Dr. Cassandra Newby-Alexander, Carol Pretlow, Allison Moore and William Brown.

AV Round Table: The Future of Roe v. Wade

Activists on both sides of the abortion debate took to the streets in protest after the leaking of a draft Supreme Court decision that could overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision that made abortion legal in the United States. Pro-life proponents say overturning the decision is a victory for unborn children. Pro-choice proponents say overturning the decision eliminates a woman's right to determine her own healthcare. Who is likely to be most affected if abortion becomes illegal on the federal level? What will happen to the women who live in the 13 states that have "trigger laws" that will immediately ban abortions upon the Court's decision? What will happen to women without the means to travel to states that will perform the procedure? And how will this decision impact the upcoming mid-term elections?
