#DadChat Took ON Racial #Stereotypes

Category: #DadChat


Jenny and Rufus Triplett – #DadChat co-hosts this week!

#DadChat agains stepped into the tough topics on Thursday, October 25 at 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET by taking on Racial Stereotypes. We’ve done religion, politics, sex, and now perhaps one of the most difficult and volatile subjects. Thankfully, we had Rufus and Jenny Triplett aka @PrisonWorld to co-host and they brought tremendous credibility to this issue. Read the transcript. Why couldn’t our candidates have such a respectful dialogue?

As we’ve been doing every #DadChat recently, we gave away TWO copies of my forthcoming e-book, “The Empty-Nest Road Trip Blues.” Below is the just-completed cover – what do you think?

Rufus & Jenny Triplett are Ebony Magazine’s Couple of the Year, Co-Authors, Radio Show Producers & Speakers. They are “changing the game” in every way possible. Not only are they one of very few professional husband and wife teams who do just about everything together, they have survived twenty plus years of marriage being attached at the hip. Mr. & Mrs. Triplett have traveled extensively and seem to draw attention wherever they appear. With their young look and laid back personalities, they are never far from an intelligent conversation.  Their book Surviving Marriage in the 21st Century – 13 Easy Tips to help you get to 20 Years and Beyond (release 2013) is sure to be a hit.

Being parents of three boys, Michael, 23, Mosi, 21 and Miles 19, they know the trial and tribulations of not only raising children, but African-American men who could end up as racial stereotypes. They are passionate about family and detouring young men and women from the criminal justice system. Some of the subjects they speak about are dysfunctional families, substance abuse, entrepreneurship, marriage & relationships, self-conscious addictions, incarceration, stereotypes and the list goes on. Their appearances on Family Court with Judge Penny and Dr. Phil garnered rave reviews as to their parenting philosophies. Jenny’s appearance on The Mike & Juliet Morning show was phenomenal as she gave The Real Housewives of Atlanta a little wisdom. Jenny also contributes to the Daily National and has provided comments for CNN, Black Enterprise Magazine, Ebony Magazine, MSN.com, The LA Times, Reuters, The American Prospect Magazine, Google News, Heart & Soul Magazine, Lagos Times (Nigeria), International Entrepreneurs Club, and a host of other magazine and radio shows.

    Yeah! I like the title Bruce “Empty Nest Road Trip Blues” is a great title for the book! Now I just wait until I get my copy to read from you (I did win the first week on #dadchat a free copy)

    Discrimination is alive in well in the world. If people believe differently they truly do live under a rock. We have all sort of discrimination in the world. People still discriminate because of age, religion, gender and sexual orientation. People still discriminate against others that have various diseases (HIV)

    I believe that the hate which comes from discrimination is often misguided at oneself (the fear of the unknown or the fear of not fitting itI. If people actually took the time to know each other they would discover its a small world and we have many more commonalities than differences. Just my opinion of course….

    Important discussion, @BruceSallan:twitter . Race has always been an issue in my life, especially being “bi-racial.” I’m looking forward to tuning in – REMIND ME on Twitter 🙂
